Video Podcast Replay – A Personal Experience of Illegal Immigration

Due to some unforeseen circumstances, there will be no new podcast, Please accept my apologies.

But as the border and illegal immigration is still on everyone’s mind because of the dreaded shutdown, and rather than leave you with nothing, I’m offering up one more popular podcasts I recorded early last year.

I took a trip recently and experienced something astounding. While driving between two major Northeast cities I was scanning the FM radio dial. I noticed something rather odd.

First that there was literally no country stations within this metro corridor. And second, that it seemed that almost 50% of all the stations played Latin music and Spanish speaking DJ’s.

Then there was the rather lengthy commercial, where the two DJ’s described free legal services for illegal immigrants as well discussing their rights. I couldn’t believe what I was hearing.

Wasserman Schultz Distances Herself from Women’s March

Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the “committed” Jew who supported Obama’s Iran deal, now is distancing herself from the

Democratic Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz of Florida condemned leaders of the Women’s March Friday for failing to “repudiate anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry.” read more

Joke of the Day

Asleep for nearly six months, she wakes up and sees that she is no longer pregnant. Frantically, she asks the doctor about her baby.

The doctor replies, “Ma’am, you had twins! A boy and a girl. The babies are fine. Your brother came in and named them.” read more

State Senator Open Carries Gun After Colleague ‘Swarmed’ By Immigration Activists

What a Virginia state senator chose to wear and how she chose to wear it to a committee meeting on Tuesday has earned national attention.

A day after Capitol Police were called to the scene when a Republican was “swarmed” by pro-immigration activists angered by his anti-“sanctuary cities” bill, first-term State Sen. Amanda Chase (R-Chesterfield) decided it was a good time to not just conceal carry, as she often does, but open carry — as a “deterrent for over-exuberant folks.” read more

On January 3, 2019, Fox News commentator, Tucker Carlson took to the airwaves. His 15 minute monologue created quite a stir amongst both the left and right.

It caused enough of a stir that everyone from New York Times opinion columnist, Ross Douthat, to National Review’s David French weighed in on it.

Please review Douthat’s column here, and French’s here.

Putting aside Carlson’s comments regarding Mitt Romney’s excoriating of Donald Trump – Tucker makes some good and not-so-good points, as do those who critiqued him.

Tongue-in-cheek, Carlson says that, “The overriding goal for America is more prosperity, meaning cheaper consumer goods. But is that still true?”

Well, for most, that’s never been true. He correctly explains that Americans just want to be happy, satisfied and fulfilled with, “Dignity. Purpose. Self-control. Independence. Above all, deep relationships with other people.” read more

In June 2018, a bright light burst into the skies over the Northern Hemisphere. At a glance it looked like any other supernova, but on closer inspection this thing turned out to be far weirder. Officially known as AT2018cow (but quickly nicknamed “The Cow”), astronomers now believe the ATLAS survey’s twin telescopes in Hawaii captured an unprecedented look at the birth of a black hole or a neutron star. read more

Joke of the Day

Three convicts were on the way to prison.

They were each allowed to take one item with them to help them occupy their time whilst stuck behind bars.

On the bus, one turned to another and said, “So, what did you bring?”

The second convict pulled out a box of paints and stated that he intended to paint anything he could. He wanted to become the “Grandma Moses of Jail.” read more

Does the Constitution Mean Anything Anymore?

This story goes back about 7 months, but it’s still as relevant today as it was then, and will become more so as we get closer to the 2020 elections. It’s about a lawsuit that struck down a Kansas State voter I.D. law.

I recall reading about it but didn’t give it much more than a passing tisk-tisk at the time. But somehow it recently resurfaced. I thought it was something new so I read it judiciously. And that’s when it hit me. As I’m a States Right guy, I don’t know why it didn’t then, but it sure struck a chord this time around.

In June, 2018, Reuters reported that, “A federal judge struck down a Kansas law requiring proof of U.S. citizenship to register to vote in a decision on Monday that could make voter registration easier in the state in the run-up to November mid-term elections. The ruling ended a two-year legal battle in which Democrats argued that such ID laws targeted voters who typically support their party, such as the young and minorities. Republican proponents of the law said it was necessary to ensure the integrity of elections.”

Yes, the Dems do have a point. What they appear to be saying is that the young and minorities are just too darn stupid and/or lazy to obtain the proper I.D. necessary to register. It sounds harsh, but how can we conclude anything else. According to the Democrat Party, their voters are just that stupid. It’s a wonder they can find their way out of bed in the morning, much less to the polls. read more

The US Air Force’s next strategic heavy bomber has passed a critical design review. On November 28 to 30, the US Defense Department carried out a multi-disciplined technical evaluation of the proposed B-21 Raider to see if its design was stable and mature enough to warrant moving on to manufacturing and flight testing, and the evaluation has determined that significant progress has been made on the three-year old project. read more
