Fauxcahontas on the warpath.

Fauxcahontas on the warpath. And out for all to see during the confirmation hearing of Dr. Ben Carson for the head of Housing and Urban Development.  The transcript below is from

English: Elizabeth Warren speaking at March 29...

the hearing.  What I find amazing is that with a reported budget of $32.6 Billion (2014), how Warren determines that Carson can keep track of each and every penny, or as the conversation went $10.

Carson was gracious and level in his answers, and yet Warren continued with the minutia.  It is apparent that she has no grasp of the job requirements and duties of a Presidential Cabinet appointee.

mr. chairman and congratulations on your
0:01
new role as chair of this committee i’m
0:04
looking forward to working with you as
0:05
well as with six new members of our
0:07
committee dr. Carson thank you for being
0:10
here thank you
0:11
before we get into some of the questions
0:12
that are raised in my letter to you
0:14
earlier this week I just want to get an
0:16
answer to I think that’s simple
0:18
yes-or-no question if you are confirmed
0:22
to lead HUD you’ll be responsible for
0:25
issuing billions of dollars in grants
0:29
and loans to help develop housing and
0:32
provide a lot of housing related
0:33
services now housing development is an
0:37
area in which president elect Trump and
0:40
his family have significant business
0:43
interests can you assure me that not a
0:47
single taxpayer dollar that you give out
0:50
will financially benefit the
0:53
president-elect or his family
0:55
well senator I was worried that you
1:00
wouldn’t get back thank you for coming
1:01
back I’m back I can assure you that the
1:12
things that i do are driven by sense of
1:16
morals and values and therefore I will
1:20
absolutely not play favorites for anyone
1:24
dr. Carson at let me stop right there I
1:27
i’m actually trying to ask a more
1:29
pointed question and it’s not about your
1:32
good faith that’s not my concern
1:34
my concern is whether or not among the
1:38
billions of dollars that you will be
1:40
responsible for handing out in grants
1:43
and loans can you just assuring us that
1:46
not one dollar will go to benefit either
1:51
the president-elect or his family
1:54
it will not be my intention to do
1:56
anything I could to benefit any any
2:00
American I understand that’s for all
2:03
Americans everything that we do
2:05
do I take that to mean that you may
2:07
manage programs that will significantly
2:10
benefit the president-elect you can
2:13
get the main that I will manage things
2:16
in a way that benefits the American
2:18
people that is going to be the goal to
2:21
the best you understand it if there
2:24
happens to be an extraordinarily good
2:27
program that’s working for millions of
2:29
people and it turns out that that that
2:32
someone that you’re targeting is going
2:34
to gain you know ten dollars from it
2:37
am I going to say no the rest of you
2:39
Americans can’t have it
2:40
I think logic and common sense probably
2:43
would be the best way
2:45
yeah although we do have a problem here
2:47
and I appreciate your good faith in this
2:49
and I do dr. Carson the problem is that
2:52
you can assure is that HUD money out of
2:56
ten dollar varieties but of
2:58
multimillion-dollar varieties will not
3:01
end up in the president elects pockets
3:03
and the reason you can’t assurance of
3:05
that is because the president-elect is
3:09
hiding his family’s business interests
3:12
from you from me from the rest of
3:14
America and this just highlights the
3:17
absurdity and the danger of the
3:20
president elects refusal to put his
3:23
assets in a true blind trust he knows he
3:28
the president like knows what will
3:30
benefit him and his family financially
3:33
but the public doesn’t which means he
3:36
can divert taxpayer money into his own
3:39
pockets without anyone knowing about it
3:41
the only way that the American people
3:44
can know that the president is working
3:45
in their best interests and not in his
3:48
own is if he divest and puts his assets
3:52
in a true blind trust transferring his
3:55
holdings to his children does nothing as
3:58
the head of the nonpartisan ethics
4:00
committee said just last night since the
4:03
president-elect refuses to address this
4:05
voluntarily we need to pass the
4:08
presidential conflicts of interest act
4:10
that i introduced with more than 20 of
4:12
my colleagues which would require him to
4:15
do so
4:16
so with the time i have less i just want
4:20
to follow up very quickly on a letter
4:22
that I sent to you earlier this week and
4:24
we talked about in my artists and I
4:26
appreciated that
4:27
but and I appreciated it to as you know
4:30
more than 7 million children rely on HUD
4:32
for housing seven million people many of
4:35
them are children veterans people with
4:37
disabilities
4:39
um for many of these people had is the
4:41
difference between a stable home and
4:43
life out on the streets but one major
4:45
problem that we talked about his lead
4:48
exposure and according to the most
4:50
recent HUD study 62,000 public housing
4:54
units nearly six percent of our total
4:56
public housing stock are in need of lead
4:59
abatement you are highly accomplished
5:02
dr. we spoke at length about the
5:05
implications of lead and lead poisoning
5:08
our children can I just ask you to
5:11
commit today that you will make sure
5:14
that HUD resources are dedicated to
5:17
dramatically reducing the number of
5:19
public housing units where LED is a
5:22
problem i can assure you that I will
5:26
very much be working with you on that
5:28
310,000 cases right now children each of
5:35
which cost us enormous amounts money i
5:37
don’t think people even calculate that
5:39
and to that when we’re talking about
5:41
so yes I will be very vigorous in that
5:44
area i I’ve airy much appreciate it
5:47
um this is a particular problem for us
5:50
in the northeast is a particular problem
5:51
in boston where housing stock is old
5:54
route and it is absolutely critical that
5:57
we get the lead out of these housing
6:00
units and that our children have a
6:01
chance to grow up without being injured
6:04
by our own negligence i look forward to
6:06
working with thank you for your
6:07
leadership and angry
6:08
thank you dr. Carson senator Heller

An Outdoor Shooting Range.

Chicago is dealing with historic gun violence in 2016.  This past Thanksgiving weekend it was reported that there remain a total of 70 individuals shot.  What happened to Chicago’s tough gun laws?  Chicago has some of the most restrictive gun laws in the country.

img_1355

According to the New York Times

Not a single gun shop can be found in this city because they are outlawed.  Handguns were banned in Chicago for decades, too, until 2010, when the United States Supreme Court ruled that was going too far, leading city leaders to settle for restrictions some describe as the closest they could get legally to a ban without a ban. Despite a continuing legal fight, Illinois remains the only state in the nation with no provision to let private citizens carry guns in public.

Make your own judgment  on how well this is working.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to…

Let’s join Mr. Peabody,and Sherman and travel way back to San Francisco in 2008,mr-peabody-sherman-1960s

You go into these small towns in Pennsylvania and, like a lot of small towns in the Midwest, the jobs have been gone now for 25 years and nothing’s replaced them. And they fell through the Clinton administration, and the Bush administration and each successive administration has said that somehow these communities are gonna regenerate and they have not.

And it’s not surprising then they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.

Candidate Obama during a fundraiser while in San Francisco back in 2008. Now lets move forward to 2016 and the end of our recent Presidential election.  I find it interesting that we have either lazy town residents, which is likely the case or we have those on the democrat side to whom Obama was referring.  I submit the following for your enlightenment.

It is interesting to note that while the county went for Hillary, none of the other candidates featured in the yard signs were winners.

Dawning of a new day.

Dawning of a new day, this Wednesday after the 2016 Presidential election.  I can report that img_1287there has been no fire and brimstone, no plague of locusts and no evidence of cats and dogs living together.

I’ve posted some in the usual suspect social media outlets, and yet have mostly stayed away and working on some other projects.  There continues to be quite a bit of weeping and wailing and knashing of teeth, along with a fair amount of handwringing over the results of the election last night.

I am pleased with the results of the election and the local results here in northern Wisconsin.  I’m not of the mind to be shouting from the rooftops, setting off fireworks, ringing the churchbells or any other public display of glee.  It’s only an election, and while in the larger scheme of things there are plenty of underlying issues relating to what transpired last night.  Yes, it’s only an election, not unlike the recent World Series which ended recently.  Two teams competed for the prize and one came away the winner.  The loser congratulated the winner and the winners had their 15 minutes of fame, and then we have all moved on.

We would be and can gain further wisdom in following the example of what transpired in the World Series.

Voting for Hillary?

Voting for Hillary?  Are you really?  I’m a horrible judge of character given your inability to make hillary-for-prisonreasonable judgments given the preponderance of facts of her guilt.

Please take a look at the following – IS HILLARY GUILTY?

It takes Bill Whittle 93 seconds to show Hillary Clinton guilty of violating three separate Federal Statutes. It takes another three minutes to explain why she and Obama simply DO NOT CARE.

Ok, I waited for the 4:52 for you to come back.  Bill is short and to the point.  Are you telling me that you’re still voting for Hillary, who has violated the espionage act and other federal statutes?  I thought you were smarter than that.

Now here is a bit longer video, 30 minutes of good facts – The Truth About The Hillary Clinton FBI Investigation and James Comey’s Announcement

Stefan Molyneux lays out with links, documented misdeeds, corruption and of course Hillary lies about just about everything surrounding the current election process.

Over the past month, I’ve seen many interesting posts.  These posts have been from individuals who are well known for their areas of expertise.  These are individuals whose postings I read for their musings and pontifications on a variety of subjects and are known and apparently well respected throughout the internet.

When it comes to their outlook and statements and writings about the current election, it becomes flagrantly obvious that these individuals haven’t a modicum of knowledge about the current political climate.  Now, everyone is entitled to their own opinions on anything.  I don’t necessarily have to agree with said individuals and I won’t.  I also ignore the trolls, not the Icelandic Christmas boys, who are at a complete loss to have a reasoned conversation about the political subject.

I do find it interesting that of the thousands of emails released documenting the multitude of violations and lies and corruption by Hillary and her menagerie, there has been no defense that any what has been brought to light is not true.

Tomorrow we get to go vote and all of the past 16 months of kerfuffle will be behind us.  I can certainly hope!  Let me know what you think, and please comment and contribute.

it’s Sunday and as we don’t have a broadcast television provider and we aren’t glued to the TV and any NFL football games.  Should I want to find out scores I’ll check espn.com.  Now on to our list which is in no particular order.

CNN: Obamacare Unaffordable For The Middle Class.

Gee, ya think?  With Arizona leading the states with an average increase of 116% I’m surprised that there isn’t a mass exodus from the state.  Given the population now of Arizona being a majority of snowbirds, I’m wondering how if at all, this impacts the numbers.

Clinton VP Candidate Tim Kaine: FBI Is Working Directly with GOP to Destroy Clinton.

Really Tim?  When you are unable to have a reasoned conversation and debate on the facts of your positions, certainly, your best offense/defense is to blame the FBI.  I am surprise that he didn’t blame the Russians.  Also missing from the conversation is the fact that Hillary Rodam (Felon) Clinton is destroying her own credibility without any assistance from outside sources.

6 Occurrences of Voter Fraud.

6 occurrences of Voter Fraud?  But wait, Paul, that’s not all that bad for a Presidential

election.  Well, these are six occurrences reporting voter fraud across the country.  There are likely as many opinions about the need or lack of need for Voter ID as there are voters in the country.

Here in Wisconsin the requirements are –

Wisconsin
  1. 1 of 3
    In person
    By mail
    Who can vote by mail

    All voters registered in Wisconsin can vote by mail

    1. Get your absentee ballot application

    Download and print the absentee ballot application


    2. Fill out the form

    Step 1 · Provide your municipality and county

    Step 2 · Provide your name, birthday, and contact information

    Step 3 · Provide your address

    More

    3. Submit the form

    Mail the signed and completed form to your Municipal Clerk’s office so it’s received by 5 PM on Nov 3

    Attach a copy of accepted ID, if required

    4. Vote
    • Once you receive your ballot, follow the instructions to fill out the ballot and return envelope
    • Your ballot must be received by 8 PM on Election Day, Nov 8
    • Check the status of your ballot on myvote.wi.gov
    ID requirements

    Attach a copy to your mail ballot application or bring one of the following IDs with you to vote:

    • A Wisconsin DOT-issued driver license with photo (or without photo if you have a religious exemption)
    • A Wisconsin DOT-issued ID card with photo (or without photo if you have a religious exemption)
    • Military ID card
    • A US passport

    More

2 of 3

  • Live at a Wisconsin address by Oct 29
  • Be registered to vote in Wisconsin or register to vote at the polls on Election Day. Check if you’re registered to vote.
  • Be a US citizen

More

ID requirements

Attach a copy to your mail ballot application or bring one of the following IDs with you to vote:

  1. A Wisconsin DOT-issued driver license with photo (or without photo if you have a religious exemption)
  2. A Wisconsin DOT-issued ID card with photo (or without photo if you have a religious exemption)
  3. Military ID card
  4. A US passport

Many on the statist left continue to clamor that the requirement to show a photo ID when casting a vote in any election is unfair,suppressive of voters and racist.  Why you wouldn’t want to know who is voting and if they are a citizen and allowed to vote, is baffling to me.  Now, despite the statist left and their insistence of their being no voter fraud here are some recent occurrences.

These are but six instances reported by local news sources across the country.  How the statist left can continue to not be cognizant that there is voter fraud across the country is amazingly disingenuous.

It is instances such as these six that enroll us in the cause to continue to Fight Back against the statist media and their complicit  and coerced stories.

HIDDEN CAM: Media Matters Brags About Sabotaging Roger Stone

Published on Oct 28, 2016

Project Veritas Action has released the sixth video in a multi-part series that is sending shockwaves through the DNC and the Clinton campaign. In a new video released by Project Veritas Action, a PVA journalist exposes how his pay for play with Robert Creamer landed him a meeting with Bradley Beychock, the President of Media Matters For America, an organization that has been attacking James O’Keefe for years.

During the meeting, Beychock gave the PVA journalist a tour of their offices. He also proudly boasted about the Media Matters assault on the conservative writer and political consultant Roger Stone.
