What about Benghazi?

Are we already distracted by all the bad news, wars, and plagues?

Or, should we watch Trey Gowdy today? Benghazi.House.Gov

I think I mentioned I met the Ambassador, Amb Stevens, before he was assassinated. I tried to talk with the Government Employee with him, but all I really got was anger and:

We are doing this for ‘Big Business’ and for our ‘Friends.’

I was not impressed.

But, does that mean I should ignore the terrible events of that day?

Should I turn a blind eye to all of the cover-up?

Should I ignore the reporters who have sacrificed and risked their careers to uncover this story?

As much as I love Ukraine, and I want to go back, this story is also important. Not that the thousands of Ukrainians being slaughtered because of bad US Foreign Policy is not important, but that this story is also important.

Will you watch?

Where do Muslim terrorists come from?

Friends,

I found an interesting graphic on Radio Free Europe about where the Middle Eastern ‘ISIS’ war fighters are coming from. Radio Free Europe.

I have read people discuss how many Muslim countries do not contribute to the terrorist groups, but the map shows that there are still a lot of extremists coming from Muslim countries. I think what those writers missed (maybe they chose to overlook) is simple: Western Muslims have a lot more money than their friends in Muslim countries.

On welfare, most Muslims in the west are given enough money to pay for a plane ticket in about a year. Most Muslims live on less than $100 a month.

So, I think many of the extremists collected from the west are simply a matter of cash flow.

What do you think?

Police try to blow woman up.

Friends,

Have you noticed how weird our world has become?

A 300 pound man attacks a cop, and we are told to believe he was a ‘kid.’ I wish the cop had not shot him, but a 300 pound man is huge, and can be a threat.

This time police did go over the top. Not in Ferguson, not in the USA, but in Australia.

Police left a bomb at the airport after a training exercise. They left it in a suitcase. So when a woman’s suitcase was damaged, the airport gave her the abandoned suitcase.

Okay, I know that technically, the police did not give it to her, the airport did.

But, how, HOW, do you leave a bomb behind?

Where is the liberal outrage?

How do you leave a half pound bomb laying around?

BBC Article about Sydney airport bomb.

You and I have to be scanned, because they do not want to hurt the feelings of the terrorists. But, COPS can leave a bomb?

Is it just me? Or, is this crazy?

How can you survive America’s coming collapse?

Friends,

I am not a ‘doomsday’ crazy guy.

But, I have read ‘The Book,’ and I know how it will eventually all end. But, before Armageddon, I think America will also come to our end.

I know it is possible that Armageddon and the end of the world could be a couple years away, but living like it is still ten or twenty years away leads to an important set of questions:

1. Will America survive much longer as we know it now?

2. If it gets bad in America, how bad will it get?

3. If it gets bad, or gets better, what will you do?

First, $18 Trillion in debt has changed our future. We will have to star paying much more interest in the future on our debt. Our budget is almost $4 Trillion. At historic interest rates, the current US Federal interest maintenance of US debt would be between $600 Billion and $800 Billion. (1)

That would require significant cuts to Welfare and Social Security. Depending on how high our interest rates go to maintain the debt, your Social Security retirement would be worth 10% to 50% less than it is today.

Do you ask why the Democrats refuse to fix the problem? So do I. Merely rolling back welfare to 2008 levels could prevent our decline. (2)

Second, naturally a 10% hit on Social Security payments is the mild possibility. With Obama’s additional debt, our weakening economy, and any world wide demand for bigger interest payments, the US would have to cut benefits more.

Personally, I think the collapse will be slow, but steady. I do not see ‘a cliff.’ But our situation will deteriorate.

Worst case? Inflation would eat away at our income levels, and we could see five years like Spain, Greece, and Italy did. Their economic output was close to ours, and their debt problem similar. They lost around 30% of their pre-crash income value.

There would be a lot of poor Americans.

Last, how can you survive America’s coming collapse?

Pray. Repent, and turn to God. And start a business (). Keep one year reserve cash in stocks, bonds, cash and gold (or precious metals and gems).

God will see you through. But, economic reserves will help you keep your sanity.

What do you think I missed?

“Islam is not Islam.”

Friends,

Our president is becoming as much of an embarrassment as his VP – Biden.

How can you say that an Islamic Organization that has been around for almost a hundred years – the Muslim Brotherhood in Syria – is not Islamic?

He funded the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt; and had the State Department teach the Muslim Brotherhood; that fiasco led to the Arab Spring.

He funded the chaos in Syria.

I guess, since he was able to say the USA was not a Christian country, he feels he can define any and everyone around the world as he saw fit.

Well.

I think he went over the top, again.

Do you think he is half as smart as the media keeps trying to convince US he is?

Do you hate moving?

Friends,

Moving is a bitter sweet experience.

I hate it. I love getting rid of the accumulated junk, but my back kills me as soon as I start thinking about the move.

How about you?

I bet Russia will use Nukes

Friends,

Last night I bet $50 Russia would use tactical nukes. It was one of those spur of the moment joking things.

A young man at the Whataburger asked me what I thought the craziest thing would be to happen in Ukraine. I answered, “Russia using tactical nuclear weapons.”

He said, “I bet you $50.”

Here is the eerie article I just read: “Russian generals plan to nuke their greatest enemy – The United States.

Friends and readers, this is not the ‘Cold War.’ The Russo-Ukrainian war is very much a hot war. Russia has several maneuver divisions in Ukraine. They have lost a LOT of soldiers. And Russia is becoming desperate to win. And to win quickly.

It has always been part of Russia’s Battle Plan to use tactical nukes when outnumbered – think China – or losing badly – think Ukraine winning. Now Russia is adding Strategic Nuclear Delivery back in when we ‘officially’ have been moving towards peace.

Either Russia, her Generals, and her leaders have gone crazy, or US leaders have gone crazy, or somewhere in between.

I bet on in between.

While we have been told that Obama was cutting defense spending because of ‘peace gains,’ in the background, I believe Obama was specifically complaining about Russia.

I believe Obama asked Democracy Organizations to investigate and encourage overthrowing the Russian Government.

And I believe in reaction to that, Russia has considered democracy movements in Russia a direct threat to their sovereignty. And they are now acting in accordance with what they believe is their only option.

And this war option is escalating.

Please pray for peace.

Why are lesbians so fat?

Friends,

The ‘research’ progressives waste our tax money on is often strange. And then they actually borrow the money to pay for strange research.

Where is the outcry?

Why aren’t people protesting this research?

Aren’t we told it is discrimination to say gays are not exactly like everyone else?

i know I have been told that.

So, why do progressives encourage spending this money proving they are different?

Is Russia after Ukrainian Gold?

Friends,

Ukraine has an interesting history. Both since man got there and before.

Ukrainian Natural Resources.

When Catherine the Great invaded, and deceived the Cossacks, she was after land and people.

Now Russia has invaded again, and they are after resources.

GOLD is one.

Several other rare earths and rare minerals are found mostly in Ukraine.

Sadly, thousands die to ensure Russia has access to scarce resources.

PS In the report, Gold is called, ‘auriferous’

Gay murder suicide

The british can be strange at times, even when they move to America.

A ‘TV personality’ has been murdered by his former student, his son-in-law, and his former lover.

Ironically, there were only two men involved in this murder-suicide.

BBC Article.

Do you think this is strange, or normal?
