    Trump as Hercules Cleaning Out the Augean Stables
    By Clarice Feldman – February 17, 2019

    Last week in Viareggio, Italy, the citizens paraded with a huge float depicting President Trump as Hercules. Looking at his many accomplishments against countless enemies and political opponents, the depiction was not inapt. Like Hercules, he defeated the Queen of the Amazons, and this week, he’s going on to clean out the Augean Stables.

      This is what I don’t understand, exactly how much of our reasoning abilities have people who voted for Trump lost ? Have their brains atrophied (Ann Coulter types)?

      President Trump is not the Cat in the Hat with his super duper cleaning machine. President Trump is cleaning out labyrinths of slime and sludge that refill with slime and sludge as soon as they are dried out. All the while many slug people who claim to be on his side keep working against him.

      If we survive as a nation, we are beyond blessed, it will be a miracle.

      May God have Mercy on us, not because we deserve it but because our future generations deserve to inherit a nation that does not celebrate the slaughter of innocent babies, the way of barbaric Islam, and the perversion of all that should be sanctified.

      May future generations not be cursed with our sins Dear Lord, may they live free Godly, Light filled lives, this I ask in the name of Jesus, Amen.

        I am of the opinion that there are many people who just don’t want things to go well. Have you ever worked with or socialized with someone who makes trouble frequently, just to throw a bomb in a placid room? I have, several people who just could not seem to deal with things being peaceful. They simply make things go wrong over and over, just when you are getting over the last sh… I mean crap they stirred up.

        I think Ann Colter is like that. She seems like a pendulum to me.

          Yes, thank you for reminding me.

          There are some people who cannot be still, they have to have motion. Motion good or bad. Some people thrive on being contrary and some people thrive on chaos.

          Sad. To live without peace, without a center must be some type of hell.

        My daughter and I talked about this yesterday. We both agreed that the discussion of vaccinations goes across the political landscape, and that it is irresponsible not to vaccinate – not just for your own children, but for the general population. I knew that my grandsons were vaccinated, but she and I had never discussed the general topic. She said that she researched the topic extensively before vaccinating the boys, and I know that she is a super star when it comes to research.

        We also talked about marijuana and how it affects the brain, particularly in teenagers. She said she told the boys – NO, DON”T DO IT! The marijuana available today is so much stronger than anything we encountered in the sixties and seventies, and her research convinced her that there is a significant risk of psychosis from marijuana use by teens, who have brains that are not fully developed.

          To be honest I’m seeing more people identifying as conservative or Republican being more anti-vaxxers as liberals/democrats. There is one man on an Oklahoma FB group that is socially and fiscally conservative, you’d think we both were twins when it comes to how much we agree on, but he is so headstrong on not vaccinating kids that he drives me insane. It is so frustrating that everything else facts are important to him, but when it comes to vaccinations he ignores all facts that disagree with what he believes, yet everything he shares that is easily debunked he takes as gospel and if you don’t believe it then it’s because you are allowing the government and companies to deceive you.
          What’s even crazier is he has basically two families, as he had one set of kids all around the same age, then had two kids late in life. First set of kids were vaccinated, none injured from vaccinations, all perfectly healthy and now either in college or starting their own family. Second set are elementary age and never been vaccinated.
          He’s a new grandfather and is mad at his daughter because she is choosing to vaccinate her baby. The stuff he shares about polio trying to convince others to not vaccinate for it infuriates me to no end.
          He of course isn’t the only one, there are many others like him, but he’s the one that is the biggest surprise to me.

            I have a friend on Facebook like that. Got to know her through local political activism. The woman is super well informed, way beyond me on local and state politics, and very intelligent. But she is very opposed to vaccines apparently and told me that each generation that was vaccinated passes on their “compromised by vaccines” genetics and that it is cumulative in each generation. So, for example, my grandchildren are less robust and strong than me, and especially than my mother and father’s generations, who didn’t have a lot of the vaccinations.

            We could be twins on political beliefs, have very similar religious beliefs even though we aren’t the same denomination. It’s weird.

              She and my daughter argue all the time, her argument is always she had measles and mumps and she’s perfectly fine. My daughter always tells her that’s great for you, but not everyone were as fortunate as you and I’m not willing to take that gamble with my kids.

    I first want to say I’ve always admired him and the work he has done in the past. However, I do think maybe he has been too close to the issue and too close to politicians for too long. Combine this along with an interview he did where he couldn’t/wouldn’t call abortion murder along with he doesn’t think abortionists or mothers should ever be charged with murder and I’m not so sure either the State or National group leaders are still on the side of ending legalized murder/abortion.

    The last two paragraphs is like a handbook handed out to pro-life members in Oklahoma as it’s repeated over and over. I am so sick of hearing we must educate people, chip away at abortions and win hearts. My daughter is 32 years old and I had an ultrasound with her, so it’s not new technology, it’s been improved with 3D, so much clearer, but we’ve been able to see babies in the womb for years. Also, we are not a democracy!!!!

    https://www.soonerpolitics.org/editorial/tony-lauinger-pro-life-is-not-a-dirty-word

    Government in a democracy is neither quick nor efficient, but there is great reason for pro-life optimism. The momentum is on our side. Polls show that young people today are more pro-life than ever. Technology such as ultrasound is a powerful tool which provides a window on the womb. The numbers of babies being killed today are the fewest in nearly 40 years.
    All pro-lifers seek the day when the right to life of the innocent will be protected in law. We must not be discouraged that it is not yet politically possible to realize this goal completely, and we must continue electing pro-life legislators at the state and federal level and pro-life presidents who will nominate pro-life justices to the U.S. Supreme Court. We must continue making incremental gains, educating the public, undermining the legal foundation of abortion, and winning hearts and minds to the pro-life cause. Doing so will save lives now, and lead to ultimate victory for the unborn child.

    I am glad she is being charged. She was a prisin psychologist. What a TOTAL crazy nut.The article even says it wasnt her dog! No wonder she didnt care.

    A woman accused of dragging a small dog behind a scooter in Bakersfield after photos and videos captured the incident last month has been charged.

    Prosecutors filed animal abuse and neglect charges against Elaine Rosa last Friday, according to television station KERO in Bakersfield.

    Rosa faces 3 years jail time and a $20,000 fine, the station reported.

    Bo Koenig, Rosa’s attorney, released the following statement to KERO:

    “We were recently advised by law enforcement that official charges have been filed against my client. I’ve reached out to my client and we plan on cooperating with law enforcement 100 percent. She is in the process of turning herself over to the authorities this evening.”

    The viral videos and photos that allegedly captured Rosa dragging a small dog behind an electric scooter in January sparked an uproar on social media.

    Brandon Sanders told KERO last month that he was with his girlfriend when they witnessed the incident.

    Sanders confronted the woman — since identified as Rosa — when she got closer and asked if she and the dog were OK.

    She responded, “S–t happens, just like with kids,” Sanders wrote in a widely shared post on Facebook.

    “We told her, ‘No, you don’t drag your kids behind a scooter at 15 mph,’” Sanders told KERO.

    The dog had four bloody paws, Sanders said.

    He snapped photos of the wounded canine – and the woman – and posted them on social media.

    “I was on my bicycle and she was walking, and she looked at me, and when she saw that I was taking her picture, she smiled at me, kind of a smart-aleck smile,” Sanders said at the time. “I’m not going to say that what she did was intentional, but it was very negligent. She had to have drug the dog at least 100 yards before she even checked to see if it was still there – and that’s just from what we saw, from the point to where we actually saw her to where she stopped.”

    According to KERO, Rosa was a former employee of the Kern Valley State Prison as a contracted psychologist. Her contract was terminated on Jan. 7.

    It is unknown if the videos or photos played a role in that.

    Rosa was not the owner of the dog, Bakersfield police said. The dog has since been returned to its owner and received medical treatment.

    The suspect posted bail and was no longer in custody, the station reported.

      We’re indoctrinated into believing that psychiatrists or psychologists know how to handle themselves and are compassionate, caring individuals. Just because a person is such a professional doesn’t mean he isn’t also a psychopath or sociopath. It also doesn’t mean they won’t have totally messed up children, or be cruel to the helpless.

              I’m pretty sure that I have told the story here before about when I went to visit a client in a lockdown ward who had been involuntarily admitted.

              I had never met here before but one of the nurses told me that she was the woman on the couch talking with the psychologist.

              There were two young women on the couch, one was dressed neatly, her hair was brushed and pulled in a neat pony tail, the other woman was disheveled, slovenly dressed, it did not appear that her hair had been brushed at all that day.

              So I waited for the couch sessions to be over and went to introduce myself.

              You guessed it, the well put together young woman was the patient the sloven mess was the mental health expert.

              I just finished reading an article on suicides among professionals…you got it…doctors of all different specialties including the psychological…male and female, young and old, various ethnicities.

              Also read that many psychiatrists and psychologists will not take on patients with suicidal tendencies as it is too debilitating when the person actually succeeds in killing himself. Plus, the cost of insurance is prohibitive because suicides’ families often sue the doctor thinking he is a miracle worker and should have prevented the suicide.

              There have been numerous family members of mine who have had psychiatric care. Frankly, they are/were basically the same now/afterwards as they were before they started seeing a professional. So I’m a tad cynical when it comes to the discipline.

    In Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar’s district, “Taliban” and other gangs run wild, Somali Muslims don’t talk to police
    February 17, 2019 by Robert Spencer

    They don’t talk to the police because they don’t trust them, because the police are not Muslims. The Qur’an teaches that Muslims are “the best of people” (3:110) and non-Muslims are “the most vile of created beings” (98:6). But no one will admit that is the cause, and so the police keep trying “outreach” programs to win them over. The result? Disasters such as the police career of Mohamed Noor.

    This will go down in history as the people rising up to get the job done when politicians have failed them. We’re going to do this the old fashion way, rolling up our sleeves, getting dirty, and doing work! Showing America the can do attitude that this country needs again.

    I’ve learned a lot along this journey, and the one thing these landowners all tell me is that they live in fear 24/7. They also feel neglected by the federal government for failing them for the past 30+ years. Property values have plummeted and crime has skyrocketed in these communities. And this is not acceptable, this is not the country I vowed to protect, this is not how we treat our citizens. It’s time we begin protecting our citizens and standing up to these cartels. Mexico has a nasty cancer, its bad, and its spreading into America. The corruption is already setting in, and that cancer is growing rapidly into the heart of our nation.

    You won’t hear this on the Lamestream media:
    Former La Joya Police Chief Geovani Hernandez is facing various drug trafficking charges for allegedly helping Mexico’s Gulf Cartel move cocaine and marijuana in order to pay for his campaign to a higher office. Hernandez is still awaiting trial.
    Former Hidalgo County Sheriff Lupe Trevino just finished serving a five-year prison sentence after pleading guilty to having taken money from convicted Mexican drug lord Tomas “El Gallo” Gonzalez in exchange for favors. During the investigation into Treviño’s dealings with Gonzalez, close to 20 Texas law enforcement officials pleaded guilty or were tried and convicted for various corrupt activities dealing with drug trafficking.
    Former Cameron County Sheriff Conrado Cantu is serving a 24-year prison sentence for his role in protecting Gulf Cartel members living in his county and their businesses. Cantu helped protect the cartel’s drug trafficking, money laundering, and underground casinos.

    Still no word on how many, if any, were shot by police officers but the city’s got its Greek Chorus out there trying ton spin the event and calm the public. So far the police shooting are listed as NOPD, State Police and at least one unspecified Federal police officer. Local tort lawyers are still blowing steam from their dilated nostrils and raring to go, just as soon as the bullets in the civilians are ascribed the race to the civil clerk’s office will be on!

    City’s starting to close ranks around the shootees ‘just being in the wrong place at the wrong time’ but the question of: ‘should the police have approached the armed robbery suspect in a crowded area’ still hangs heavy in the air.

    Things that make me laugh. This local anchor/reporter was arrested several days ago for DUI after crashing her car into an electric pole, shutting down a major road in Tulsa for several hours. She works for the local FOX station, they have been silent on the arrest. One other local news station reported it and Tulsa’s local paper reported on it after a local online news source reported it. What made it even funnier was that the same day she was arrested she reported on a woman running her car into a local bank.
    When they were called by the paper and an online news source about it they said they had no comment as it was a personal matter. I guess that’s why they also don’t cover a news story. 🙂
