A cold bitter March Sunday morning….. just my thoughts before I head to Church.
My Music the things I play are always played for me but I do hope some of you actually listen to them. If not that’s Ok also. I was raised to be one thing, I was raised to be a Cop. Life however makes it’s own plans and I wound up in the Airline Business which I loved. When USAIR went belly up the second time I got screwed and fell back on my knowledge base selling Guns. I had intended to go back to the Airline Industry eventually, but once again life had other plans and I got sick. Lifes a Bitch.
Growing up I was taught there are first and foremost two kinds of People, Cop and Little People. I was raised in that world as a Prince. My father was the third highest ranked Officer in the City. The only way you got higher than he did was by political appointment. When he died his funeral was the second largest the city ever had. The majority of my friends were the children of other Cops as a cops kid it seemed for the most part you fell into two categories. The ones that carry the traditions and the ones who rebelled and became criminals. I fell into the former group, and even though my life didn’t follow the path I was trained for I still managed to keep the benefits. I was never shunned.
Now I am a Catholic. I believe in heaven and hell, in Angels. The following is a cover version of Paint it Black. The video that accompanies it is from the TV show Lucifer. It is based on a graphic novel series where Lucifer after millennia of serving as the king of Hell decides he no longer wants to play his role and he leaves Hell and moves to LA and runs a nightclub. It is a very interesting portrayal of Lucifer not one that most Catholics would expect. It is well worth the watch. No matter what he does God set up his role in existence and the events even on Earth are manipulated to put him back in his roll.
He is a very conflicted Soul this song is the tempo his life is set to, as I have also felt that it is a tempo I regretfully share. I play it hopefully for your enjoyment.
This second song is dedicated to Antonio. He was a fellow Prince and one of my best friends. He followed his fathers path. We buried him this week. This ones for you Antny. Rest well my brother.
Can we get a collective Gesundheit to the President’s debacle on Health Care? He’ll need more than a spoonful of medicine this weekend in Mar-a-Lago to make this medicine go down. Diagnosis: politicking ain’t governing.
Humpty Trumpty fell off his wall (which is not that great a fall cause he can’t get Mexico to pay for it) Now can all the Donald’s horses and all the Donald’s men repeal and replace? Apparently not. A signature promise is not delivered by the art of the no deal President. He only had his personal involvement, 7 years of Republican angst, and both houses of Congress. His erratic and detail adverse leadership killed the Republican plan more effectively than an Obamacare death panel. Who says laughter at the President isn’t the best medicine?
It is time to put Dr. Zaius in charge, cause an orangutan is needed for this health care circus. Or perhaps Dr. Zhivago given the President’s affection for Russian characters. Either way my prognosis is that he will tweet more fiction than fact. Any way you look at it it was a resounding clustertrump. If he can’t manage the details of effective governing then his promised agenda may not be able to find a cure for itself. Doctor Doctor, Mr. M.D., what is ailing we? Trumpcareless.
And, of course, it wasn’t JUST London. The Jihad is across the world…
The man who tried to drive into a busy crown in Antwerp has been charged with attempted terrorist murder. The suspect allegedly sped a car down a pedestrian shopping street in Antwerp, making several failed attempts to hit pedestrians nearby. No one was injured in the incident, but authorities said pedestrians had to jump out of the way and police found knives and other weapons in the vehicle of 39-year-old Mohamed R., a French resident of North African origin.
In short, a Muslim killer. Mohamed in Belgium, Khalid in London, do we see how this works yet?
Here’s a great post by David over on The Shy Society…
Welcome to the aftermath of the latest Islamic terrorist attack on British soil. Heroic policeman Keith Palmer butchered outside the Mother of Parliaments, three other innocent people murdered, 40 people hospitalised and French schoolchildren mowed down like cattle.
Not surprisingly a flurry of questions is being asked. How could the attack happen so close to Parliament? Who was the attacker? Did he have accomplices? And how well known was he to security services? But, put simply, all of these questions are just noise.
The only pertinent question that should be posed today is this: How many more terrorist attacks will there be before the centre-ground in this country wakes up and elects a Government which will bulldoze political correctness and stand up to the creeping Islamisation of not just Britain but the whole of the Western world? How much more blood will be spilled before this happens? That’s the question – because it will, make no mistake.”
There was no vote on repealing Obamacare taking place today. Contrary to what you will see and read this was a victory.
The Freedom Caucus Tea Party wing was able to form a bloc and hold together enough to stop the GOP Leadership from dictating Legislation. This is the thing we have been trying to achieve since 2010, and we did it.
The Conservative block of the Republican Party has forced themselves a seat at the table.
It’s a damn good day.
President Trump has put his foot down with Paul Ryan. The Vote will take place this morning.
Whether this passes or fails on this vote it is a failure and a victory. A failure because the GOP Leadership blew their first opportunity to show that they know how to be a majority, and as I said a victory because it has been shown the Freedom Caucus can shut the process down.
THE PRIMITIVE who killed for Islam yesterday, in London, was born 52 years ago in Kent. You don’t get more integrated than that,
The dead are a London copper, married with children, a Spanish mother and teacher, and a man from Utah whose wife is in hospital. The many injured are from all around the world. Leftists can at least “celebrate the diversity” of the victims.
No, the primitive was not and never could be British. The Left doesn’t get to get that game. We know that the primary cultural purpose of immigration from the Third World is to undermine our nation. You don’t get to flood our streets with strange aliens who cleave to strange, unbending beliefs, to dilute our culture and heritage, to subvert our laws and traditions, to promote the foreign and unwelcome, to do all of this to rub our noses in diversity, and then claim that the immigrants, the very instruments of this war, are British.
No no no, we take you at your word. They’re not British because they’re divergent from Britain. You can’t have it both ways.
Four people, including an armed police officer and a man believed to be the attacker, have died in a terrorist incident near the UK’s Houses of Parliament, Scotland Yard has said. A woman was among several pedestrians struck by a car on Westminster Bridge, before it crashed into railings. Police said an officer protecting Parliament was stabbed by an attacker, who was shot by police.
You do not defeat terrorism by rewarding terrorists, regardless of how many bleeding heart liberals argue otherwise. Want to know where that flawed approach leads to? Read UNIONISM DECAYED 1997-2007 - It's my first book and it explains what happens when you seeek to appease terrorists and call it peace. It's available right now for ATW readers so make sure you get your copy by emailing the editor! This is the book that dissents from the herd mentality that doing wrong can lead to being right. It doesn't and this book spells out WHY.
