liar-nObama Cowardice Reason US Cyber Defense Threats Laughed Off
by Rick Wells
{} ~ There is probably no greater testament to the extreme level of one’s corruption than the assessment made by Lou Dobbs regarding Hussein liar-nObama...  Dobbs noted the lucrative speaking fees paid to the former pretend ‘president,’ ” liar-nObama, who has accepted millions of dollars per speech, making the liar-Clintons look pristine when it comes to the level of greed.”  Dobbs referenced the awarding of the JFK Profile in Courage Award to the criminal who formerly squatted in the White House and how he praised his own courage for backing down in the face of international challenge from Syria and Russia, the failure to follow through on his Syria red line ultimatum. liar-nObama said that non-action required “the most political courage.” Dobbs says, “Never have we heard such self-accredited heroism about one’s own passivity.” As Dobbs introduces Lt Col Tony Shaffer, he’s almost at a loss for words, stating two points, that liar-nObama in his $3.5 million speech in Milan referenced himself in the first-person singular 216 times and that he seems to have bestowed upon himself a Profile in Courage Award...

Mark Of Beast System Almost Complete
In India, Coming To America
by Rick Wells
{} ~ The Mark of the Beast is being rolled out in the form of a universal ID in the world’s most populous nation, India... a non-Christian nation that is largely unaware of the warnings in the Bible against what they are implementing. It’s a version of our Social Security System that moves their society to the threshold of complete government control over the individuals in every aspect. Perhaps it’s no longer accurate to refer to them as individuals but more correctly as members of the collective. The government of India is building what is described in the LA Times and exposed in the video from Grindall61 as the “biggest and most ambitious biometric database ever conceived. It follows that the Social Security system may have been a project that has fulfilled its purpose in its current stage...
Dilbert Exposes Great Global Warming Fraud
by Adrian Vance
{} ~ While the men and women who do comic strips are often “off-the-wall,” they occasionally “nail it” and this is one such case, and it serves as an opening to a profound discussion... How did the man-caused global warming fraud happen and what supports it?

For most of the history of physical science, chemistry and physics, the work was done by two kinds of men, those who inherited wealth and those who were stealing it. In-between there were the few who could afford to do an occasional experiment, make a discovery and prosper as a result. They were few and far between. Corporations and governments have changed that with discoveries that lead to new products and more lethal weapons as well as cross fertilization with capital, some borrowed and some taken as taxes...

DNC Faces Another Class Action Lawsuit
After $1 Million in Bonuses Given Out
by Michael Sainato
{} ~ The Democratic National Committee and former DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz are currently facing a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of Bernie Sanders supporters in federal court for rigging the Democratic primaries... in favor of liar-Hillary Clinton. On May 12, CBS reported another class action lawsuit was filed against the DNC for stiffing dozens of field organizers all over the country for overtime work during the 2016 election while the DNC gave out $1 million in bonuses, including more than $300,000 to Democratic National Convention Host Committee Executive Director Kevin Washo. The lawsuit was filed by Justin Swidler of Cherry Hill, N.J. on behalf of 40 to 50 field organizers against the DNC, Pennsylvania state Democrats, and five other state Democratic Parties...
Off The Bucket List
by Tom McLaughlin
{} ~ Crossed “Grand Canyon” off my bucket list last week and, according to weather reports, it was a good time to be away from Maine. We stayed in Flagstaff, Arizona and took day trips, but only one to the big canyon last Thursday. It was cool and windy, but the sun was out. I got a sunburn on my face, arms, and that alleged bald spot on the back of my head I can’t see but people tell me is there. It feels sensitive under a hot shower now.
Hard to photograph how steep the drop-off is
My wife and I checked out cliff dwellings of the Sinagua Indians in Walnut Canyon the first day. They were western cousins of the better-known Anasazi. The National Park Service did a nice job building a path along what would otherwise have a treacherous hike for older tourists like us. My wife, Roseann, said raising toddlers on those narrow trails must have been a nightmare. I’d have put them in harness and roped them to a juniper growing out of a crevice. On the canyon rim, pottery sherds and chips left from knapping stone tools abounded on the surface. Archaeologists call it debitage — waste from manufacture of stone knives, scrapers, and projectile points. We both enjoyed it.
Then it was down to Sedona where aging hippies and young hipsters comprise a critical mass. Vogue describes a visit there as: “…basking in the pink glow of Sedona, Arizona’s red rock canyons and its aura-obsessed, pleasantly frozen-in-time, hippie-dippie community.” We drove around as I photographed red sandstone formations — some sun-lit, others in shadow.
Loopy people, but beautiful countryside
Vogue said Sedona contains, “an array of healers and their own breed of eccentric methodologies.” They were everywhere but we avoided them. The landscape was interesting, but I felt even more out of place in Sedona than when I visit Whole Foods back in Portland, Maine. I’m just not organic enough, not sustainable enough, and I eat gluten. I like preservatives and I’m free-range only in an intellectual sense that’s threatening to both hippies and hipsters.
Next day we visited a national park called the Wupatki Monument and Sunset Crater. It was fun listening to the female robotic voice in my dashboard GPS unit pronounce it. Looking north from the long road in was a pale-green sea of grass stretching to the horizon. Tasseled tops waved in a steady wind with small evergreens here and there resembled grazing buffalo. To the east were round, grassy hills. To the south were the snow-capped San Francisco Peaks — highest in Arizona.
But the flatness of the grass sea was illusory. Along the way were ravines and small, box canyons offering shelter from relentless wind. Beside these were pueblo ruins. Getting out and walking, the grass sea that seemed unbroken, down at my feet was actually sparse. Pottery sherds littered dry, gravelly soil. Here and there were small, sharp bits of chert and obsidian debitage from ancient tool-makers right on the surface. No wonder westerners find artifacts so easily. Here in New England, they’re covered with accumulated soil from decayed leaves and pine spills.
Nearby was Sunset Crater, formed in a volcanic eruption less than a thousand years ago — very young in geologic time and still in the traditional memory of nearby Hopi, Sinagua, and Navajo Indians. There were lava bombs strewn around and incorporated into the limestone walls of pueblo ruins. Black cinder covered entire hills between which were rivers of solidified lava that looked as if it hardened only yesterday. A Wupatki Park Ranger said Clovis points from 12,000 years ago were found in the region indicated a human presence then to now. What’s buried under that lava? I’ll never know.
Pueblo on the rocks
Lastly, we went the giant hole in the ground that is the Grand Canyon. It was warm and sunny when we got to the south rim and we walked along for a few hours until it got crowded. I heard many languages spoken and Asians were everywhere taking pictures of themselves and each other. We had to stop often so as not to walk between photographer and subject and that got tedious.
Neither of us would get close to the edge of the mile-deep canyon because it drops off sharply. It’s not as if you’d slide down an incline should you fall. It’d be more like a free fall until that thud at the bottom — although you might bounce off a stone spire here and there depending on where you fell off.
The Grand Canyon is aptly named. I’d call it awesome if that word hadn’t lost its literal meaning after decades of misuse. The views are truly awe-inspiring. We allowed two days to see it and were even ready to take a helicopter ride across. We didn’t go back though. It was the crowds.

Democrat Sen. Chris Murphy: ‘The Real Second Amendment Isn’t Absolute

Sen. Chris Murphy (D-CT) tweeted Saturday there is a “real” Second Amendment and an “imaginary” one and he believes the real one is “not absolute.”

Murphy, “I support the real 2nd Amendment, not the imaginary 2nd Amendment. And the real 2nd Amendment isn’t absolute.”

The statement was a precursor to his call for banning “assault rifles” in the wake of the Santa Fe High School shooting, even though “assault rifles” were not used in the attack.

Murphy said the “real 2nd Amendment…allows Congress to wake up to reality and ban these assault rifles that are designed for one purpose only – to kill as many people as fast as possible.”

Gov. Greg Abbott (R-TX) said the Santa Fe High School attackers used a .38 revolver and a shotgun to carry out his heinous acts. Therefore, a ban on “assault rifles” would have done nothing to prevent the attack from occurring or the tragic loss of life from taking place.

It should be noted that Saturday was not the first time Sen. Murphy called the essence of the Second Amendment into question. On August 6, 2013, Breitbart News reported that Murphy told MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow that “The Second Amendment is not an absolute right, not a God-given right. It has always had conditions upon it like the First Amendment has.”

Murphy did not grapple with the words, “Shall not be infringed.”
