Winston Churchill to Jack Churchill, November 15, 1895

Well worth rereading in the present day. Two pull quotes:

But essence of American journalism is vulgarity divested of truth.
A great, crude, strong, young people are the Americans – like a boisterous healthy boy among enervated but well bred ladies and gentlemen. Some day Jack when you are older you must come out here and I think you will feel as I feel–and think as I think today.

Picture to yourself the American people as a great lusty youth – who treads on all your sensibilities – perpetrates every possible horror of ill manners – whom neither age nor just tradition inspire with reverence–but who moves about his affairs with a good hearted freshness which may well be the envy of older nations of the earth.

Thank you, young Winston!

Three questions “they” should ask Hillary Clinton.

Here are three questions it would be great to ask Hillary Clinton.

  1. Do you agree never to do a Friday afternoon document dump?
  2. Will you guarantee that you’ll appoint a nonpartisan, apolitical Commissioner of Internal Revenue?
  3. Will you agree to appoint an independent, forensic IT professional to  guarantee the documentary integrity of all your emails?

It would be nice to see her torch her own campaign by weasel-wording these questions.

Unlike the living answer to Hillary’s dictum — “What difference at this point does it make?” — President Barack “Test Signal” Obama, voting present most of the time, no matter how dangerous it gets at Fardu دو  or Zahedan, and unlike someone with a clear conscience, Hillary, who represents the past and is so polarizing, calculating, disingenuous, insincere, ambitious, overconfident, secretive, who considers herself inevitable and entitled to the White House and who will do anything to win, though out of touch, will not be able to handle these questions.  Even refusing to answer will not help.

Confession is always a place of victory.

Lovely article about the faithful priest and confession, always a place of victory.

V for victory

Hardened heart of Obama: will take executive action on immigration after summer

According to Christian Science Monitor, Mr. Obama is going to encode his will for border disintegrity in a few weeks, using an executive order.

Obama will take executive action on immigration after summer, adviser says.

It seems an unwise move, but his nature seems to be aligned to sacrificing other people to his will, regardless of the cost.

It reminds me of the pharaoh of Egypt.

Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go in to Pharaoh; for I have hardened his heart and the heart of his servants…”
Exodus 10:1

A wise scholar known as Ramban taught that the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that Pharaoh could freely choose to let Israel go or to retain them as slaves. Had the Lord not hardened Pharaoh’s heart, the plagues of trouble laid down on Egypt might have compelled Pharaoh to let the Israelites to go: not a freely chosen decision. And in the end, Pharaoh’s heart was so hard that he did send his chariots and charioteers after the Israelites.

Back to 2014 and the USA/Mexico border…

It was Pharaoh’s will to keep a foreign people, the Israelites, inside the Egyptian border as slaves, while Mr. Obama wants to sucker people from other lands through our border, into the USA, not as slaves per se but as easy-to-exploit workers.

Unwise for Pharaoh, unwise for Mr. Obama.

Imbecilic Doofus-in-chief and his secretary Bobo need a RESET.

Somehow, the Doofus-in-Chief Obama has "strengthened" our hand abroad to the point that KGB man Putin calls Bobo Kerry a liar!

Where’s that RESET button!

Sec. State John Bobo Kerry who served in Viet Nam and is a fan of Manny Ortiz.(Thanks, Drudge, for another memorable headline.)
