hard aport! too late...

the march to war

friday, april 20th

the US Ship of State is being steered into an iceberg, in Syria.

And it's scumbag John Bolton, along with the lowlife socialist European commie filth like French President Emmanuel Macron (France) who's doing the suicide steering, just like they did with W's screwed-up administration, for no good reason. And Trump does have the guts to say, "fuck you, FIGHT it yourself, assholes"!

Russia, aka the Soviet Union Commie filth, are issuing warnings to the US, UK and France, but it was already underway, as of this morning, Saturday 4/14/18. Hundreds of conventional-tipped cruise missiles and drones were flying everywhere.

muslim (spit) troglodyte from hell

And Putin is pissing and moaning about it all, because Russia's going to get its commie ass kicked, if it gets any more involved against the US on behalf of one of its third world client states.

One sure way to know that war is underway in the Middle East, is to watch the price of gas at our local pumps. If the price of world (sweet crude) oil hits $100+/bbl on the world market, beware: it's here. Likewise, when pump prices hit $4.50-5.00, it's on. Watch the prices climb. The Energy Information Administration is predicting a 14% increase3 over last Summer's traditional driving season, April thru September.

Friends come and go, bought-and-paid-for enemies are forever.

Dozens of Syrian chemical labs are now obliterated, thanks to Trump&Co's adept handling of the situation; f•ck the commie-lib-filth's treasonous tactics to stop the cruise missile attacks, which only apply to an Act of War.

Here's what the mentally-ill Pelosi bitch had to say about it. In a statement, House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said, This latest chemical weapons attack against the Syrian people was a brutally inhumane war crime that demands a strong, smart and calculated response. One night of air strikes is not a substitute for a clear, comprehensive Syria strategy. Where's my Botox shot?

Un-fricking-believable, isn't it, that we might again be involved in another "VietNam Syndrome": endless war, in a place we have no business being in.

No, it isn't impossible; it's very possible and eminently probable.

A Day In The Life.

My left-side and belly pain kept getting worse Friday evening into Saturday morning, and though I had lots to do with loading/unloading 8 very heavy file boxes to a community shredding site at 8a, I did it anyway. I just kept my mouth shut and didn't say a word to either Dad or Becky, but I sure paid the price afterward. The Rx 20mg Oxys are about the only thing that even remotely help; my usual OTC 83mg childrens' coated aspirin doesn't do spit, nor does the Rx 10mg Valium or Rx 2mg Lorazepan.

After doing some small chores at Dad's, I got home around 10:30a, took 2 more Oxys, started some loads of laundry, and laid on th LR couch to rest for a short while. I have to drive to the Ol' GC&N site tomorrow, to meet with the new owners and turn over 2 heavy file boxes of archival documents, beginning in late 1989. By 1p, it was a delightful, warm and sunny 81°F, and tomorrow it's supposed to be dropping to 45°F and heavy rain is expected, streaming-up from the Gulf. The northern part of the plains and Upper Midwest is already getting slammed by 12-18" of snow and ice. Swell. Hey, it's Spring.

If you have the Google Chrome browser on your system, UNINSTALL IT IMMEDIATELY! Here's why: just another one of Google's information/data spies. I used it as a back-up, along with Pale Moon, Vivaldi and Firefox, with Opera being my primary browser, for years. Not ever again will anything from Google defile my computer, if I can help it.

I'm tired of losing family and friends to Heart Disease – probably the way I'll go out, if Pancreatitis doesn't kill me first – and if I could reverse time, I'd work my ass off to find a cure for it.

By 3:30p, temps had already hit 84°F, and I was sitting on my front porch in one of the beach chairs, enjoying the Spring-like weather, before it "disappears" tomorrow. A couple of neighbors stopped-by, as they were walking their dogs, picking-up the fragrant poop. After catching-up on things, I was back into the condo to stay for the day, and fell asleep on the LR couch for 4-5hrs. That pretty much kills my sleep for the night, but when I woke-up at 7:30p, my side and belly pain were (mercifully) 80% gone. I stayed-up until 12:45a, watching the Barrett-Jackson Auction of Cars, and called it quits for the night.

I slept-in until 9:30a Sunday morning, pain 100% gone, had juice, cereal and coffee for breakfast, and decided to go to nearby Sears to look for some 2" waist smaller jeans. The ass-end is so baggy in the ones I'm wearing (34" x 30"), the back pockets are down to my knees. I found two pairs of 32" x 29", in their massive jean sales area, and will give those a tryout thru the week. After running a few errands, I went home and waiting for the new buyers of my property to can to meet them at the site, and turn-over 2 boxes of archival documents, plus go on a "tour" as to what they're doing with the place. I hadn't heard from then, so maybe something came up and they had to cancel; a phone call would have been nice.

Finally the paid-to-lie weather forecasters got one right: heaving rain and a 45°F drop in temps. That's one-in-a-row. Could have been snow like the Midwest got.

I stayed-up until 11p, to watch more Barrett-Jackson Car Auctions, finally had enough, and pulled the plug. It was raining "cats & dogs", as the streaming Gulf rain moved north and east on top of us. Tomorrow, I have to see if I can convert one of my 2009 HP Compaq Pro Microtower's slots to wireless, so I can run a 65" Class Q9FN QLED Smart 4K UHD TV (2018), as well as a 43" Class J5000 LED TV, for my new computer office, now moved to the sunroom. WOWZER! If it won't accept and run wireless, then I'm back to simple USB wires. All this stuff's down the road quite a piece, so I'm not concerned just yet.

That whole thing is a long ways away, at least until the Fall. Too much other stuff to do until I get to that phase.

Monday was a cold 45°F, heavy rain day, streaming-up from the Gulf, and which had brought blizzards and record snows to the Midwest. I had to few places to go, and after those errands, decided to stay-in where it was warm and dry. Lee stopped by and brought some ham & green beans he and his wife had for dinner last light. By then, I'd already eaten 3 Tacos and decided to keep them for Tuesday afternoon. I crashed around 10p. Busy day at the doctors, tomorrow.

Dad is officially 94 today! He sure got the good genes in the family.

I slept-in until 8:30a Tuesday, had coffee and breakfast and Becky picked-me up at 2p, for my 3p Pancreatic Surgeon, got a bunch of Lower Abdomen CT-Scans, Lower Abdomen Ultrasound, Stress Test, Bloodwork at a nearby lab and all which determine whether or not I'm a "candidate" for a Gall Ball Bladder removal, or not-so simple "procedure" to unclog a possible clogged duct to the Pancreas. Pray for the latter, as I loathe . There was a conflict after I got my schedule out and checked competing dates, so I'll have to call back do some rescheduling. I honestly don't know what I'd do without my sister, and her 41yrs of medical operations background there to advise and guide me. The whole day pretty much gone, we stopped at Dad's and wished him a Happy 94, gave him a homemade card, and as many more as he could take. Many family and friends can't believe he's lived that long.

I got my new lenses back – I use $65 clip-on sunglasses for those frames, so that saves $500+ buying them from the eye dr – and York Eye Associates install them, and they'll take some getting "used to", after 7yrs with the same lenses. I kept the frames; best frames I can remember having in all those years of wearing the dreaded glasses.

NatGeo had a 3hr special, "Hitler Youth, The Nazi Child Army", and I watched it for less than an hour or so. It was sickening, and I could only take it for so long. I bagged it for the night around 11pm; lots to do tomorrow again.

I woke-up at 4:15a Wednesday, and just couldn't get back to sleep, so I got up, made coffee, had a light breakfast of English muffins and Apricot jam, scanned the weather and headlines: Barbara Bush died overnight at-home, floods are everywhere south of York, PA, I'm still taking time to get used to the glasses, I have a boatload of lab tests, CT-Scans, Dr's appt's, evermore Dr's appt's, SHTF hitting the fan in the middle east, errands to do since being without my Jeep for 5 days, and much, much, much more.

Hells bells, after a few errands in the morning, and changing some medical abdominal scans around, I spent the day snoozing in that wonderful brown leather reclining chair w/ ottoman, that I'd gotten from Dad. It was 53°F outside, with the 35-45mph wind, it felt like 10°F. After being jolted awake and getting-up to answer the cellphone several times, I couldn't remember what day it was, so I kept it right next to me. Ha. I pulled the plug around 8:30p, and went up for some sleep. My pills' were getting to me.

Around 3:30a, the belly pain started-up again, and I moved from the bed down to the LR couch, took 2 more Rx painkillers, and slept until 8:30a, when the cleaning ladies showed-up. They were there for their usual 2½-hrs, changed the bed into new sheets, just one of 8 new sets. combined with one-of-two lightweight down blankets, it's a real pleasure to climb into bed every night. Coffee, English Muffin w/ poached eggs and I was set for the day.

Cloudy, cold, rainy and windy made it a perfect day to do some plant shopping, since the nurseries and garden centers were virtually empty, and their offerings were paltry, at best. Looks like it'll be a late Spring, and I'm sure glad I'm not in that industry/business anymore. The greenhouse growers must be having fits and starts with the up-and-down weather cycles; glad I don't have to deal with that crap, anymore. Suddenly, Spring and Summer will arrive with a vengeance and it'll be a madhouse with prices thru the roof, due to pent-up demand. No, I didn't buy anything, as they're's barely a few leaves and o color showing. And the next frost wil kill them - most nurserystokk which Wintered-over should be fine, but all annuals and most perennials are highly-susceptible to cold and frost. God forbid, we should have has 2-5" of ice and snow.

After getting home at 4:30p, I caught the news and weather, and the weather's ranging from the upper-30s to the low-70s; that should play hell & havoc with growers ad gardners alike. I thik that I'll wait a while until things stabilize before doing anythig befor doing any gardening outside. I watched the Velocity Channel until 11:30p, pulled the plug. Thre's always anothr week ahead. Besides, I have to get bloodwork drawn at Wellspan's Stoney Brook Lab, and pick-up some high-conctrast media dye to drink before my next CT-Scan on May 3rd. (((Sigh)))

Your TSHTF Survival

Are you truly ready for when, not if, TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). And a lot of my "Journal" Readers have emailed and called me to discuss what preparations they should take for that "coming awful event". Believe me, "it" IS coming. Based upon what's happening around the world and here in the US, I have a terrible, terrible *gut feeling* that TSWHTF (The Shit Will Hit The Fan), sometime in 2014. Don't ask why; I just do.

First, Israel is preparing for war, after being attacked for years on many fronts, and not fighting back as she should have. This war will truly have "Biblical implications" around the world. The Middle East is rapidly-collapsing under the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic riots (muslim Brotherhood) and rule ("arab Spring"), with world crude oil prices projected to hit $200+/bbl, or even higher into the $300-$400 range,

(Net picture)

Europe is on the verge of insolvency and collapse, no thanks in great part to Germany, teetering-and-tottering Asia and South America will quickly-follow, then comes the downfall of Canada, and The USA won't be far behind, in late 2012 and into 2013. Watch this video; be sure you're sitting-down, and don't have any food or liquid in your mouth upon which to choke.

Just Google "survival" and see what comes-up. Damned-near everything you ever wanted to know how to prepare for this for-sure-coming "hellish holocaust", some of it in easy-to-download *.PDF format. Tens-of-thousands of websites are devoted to the topic of "survival". Do the same with "You Tube", and watch the thousands of videos. This is *NOT The Phony Y2K Crappola*; this is for real. I said numerous times that Y2K was a waste of time and money to prepare for, and that came true. I'm reading that "survival stores" are reporting a huge upswing in sales and preparations, and for good reason.

I'm also one of the very, very few who "predicted a 9-11 type event", 2 years and 8 months before it happened. Read down that "Journal" entry to the "Scary Stuff" section, and it was done by the subhuman, murderous muslim/islamic shit/filth/trash, NOT the US Gov't as some morons and idiots (Alex Jones & Co), have and still It's interesting you mention when an old paradigm dies and a new one takes its place. There are people who are still connected to the old one and can't conceive of life without that old paradigm. I think you saw that in the Great Depression. A lot of people never recovered from it because once that hit it was the end of their lives. claim. Need I say more about those certifiable and murderous, subhuman muslim/islamist wackos who are determined to kill all of us Proud Infidels?

Am I an "conspiracy alarmist" or one of those "crazed survivalists", sequestered in a Montana, Idaho, Utah or Wyoming compound or bunker? Not hardly; I'm simply in mid-State Pennsylvania, an Eagle Scout, Class of 1963, Order Of The Arrow/ Vigil Honor, and our BSA Motto was then, and still is now, "Be Prepared". Need I say any more?

Forget all of the "buy gold and silver" bullshit commercials; buy "brass and lead" for your guns. They're a far, far superior investment, IMO. Ammo is truly a "fungible" item; gold & silver aren't at all. They may be "intrinsic", but they're utterly-useless in a collapsing/collapsed society or world. Do the requisite research, as I've done. 'Nuff said on that subject.

BTW, how are you stocked-up for incandescent light bulbs? Within 4 weeks, manufacturing and using 100w incandescent will become "a crime", thanks to stupid-assed, liberal moron chimp, shit-for-brains, George W Bush & Co, in 2007. You'll be forced, under penalty-of-law, to use the very expensive,

(Net picture)

dangerous and short-lived CFLs (Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs). Better stock-up NOW on 60w, 75w and 100w incandescents, where and when you can find them, before they become unavailable and illegal!

This government's ***CRIMINALLY NUTS***, in trying to regulate our use of anything and everything! It's fascism, socialism, Leninism and communism, dammit, and it won't stand! Where is that in The US Constitution? The US Government isn't empowered to force us to do or buy anything, and has overstepped its legal authority in The ENUMERATED Commerce Clause. The Commerce Clause is quite specifically an enumerated power listed in the United States Constitution (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3). The Contemporary Commerce Clause debate, When "decided by the SCOTUS in the Summer of 2012", will cause CWIII, if upheld. Stockpile NOW, because TSHTF before/during/after the November General Election!

Gold is NOT the way to go; lead and brass (aka ammo) ARE. Mark my words!

TSHTF this or next year, and members of the corrupt, criminal US Congress are helping racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "Fuck America!" Obama (SAMBO-IL), by either collaborating with him or cowering before him, on his You are going to see, in metro areas, the absolute worst in humanity, as the people that are most dependent upon a collectivist system, whether they're these Occupy Well Street people, or people who are loaded up with debt, they are totally unprepared for an economic reality where their paradigm does not function. As a result they're going to go through the absolute most disgusting inhumanity that I think any American has ever seen as they go through this anger phase – and it's going to result in riots, and starvation and bloodshed. It has to happen. You don't have people's life savings disappear and people become desperate, and not have that happen. Don't kid yourself, because it's coming, plain as the nose on your face: "A Race War" plan, that's been in the works for 8+ years.

We are *at war with Iran*; no doubt about it. Get used to it. And shit-for-brains, racist, commie, lowlife scumbag Barry "F•ck America!" Obama (TRAITOR-IL) has politely "asked" for our formerly Top Secret RQ-170 Sentinel Drone "to be returned". What a dumbf•ck Obama is! He should be charged, tried and imprisoned for *treason*, IMO.

I've been saying, for the past 2-3 years, that no one should buy any gold or silver; it's worthless crap if TSHTF (The Shit Hits The Fan). Instead, buy guns and ammo; they're a far, far better investment, IMO. Any questions?

Uh-oh, it's beginning to happen in Europe. Better get ready for it to come over here, soon, as The Fed f•cks America, once again. Time to abolish The Fed and its corrupt, criminal influence on America's economy!

Here's a very useful List of Barter Items, for when TSHTF. Get and stockpile those and more, if you know what's good for you and your family! Think I'm kidding? Better read this and think VERY carefully about it.

With the FBI already considering many US Citizens as "sovereign citizen extremists", are you ready for "Rex 84" & The FEMA Camps? A new bill has been introduced in the US House of Representatives called the National Emergency Centers Act or HR 645. This bill if passed into law will direct the Secretary of Homeland Security to establish

national emergency centers otherwise known as FEMA Camp Facilities on military installations. Some more detail on "Rex 84", right here, written by, very disappointingly, USMC Lt Col Oliver North.

"Economic chaos" ahead? You betcha. Are you and your family ready for it? It IS coming, at out current rate of out-of-control government spending.

Before TSHTF, here are 20 Lessons From The Streets of Cairo. Worth reading, if you plan to survive.

Looks like a "race war" is coming, thanks to the hate-filled nigga race-pimps Jackson, Sharpton, Farrakan and New Black Pampers®, and time is growing shorter and shorter before TSHTF.

Don't let the possibility of DHS watching your every move deter you in preparing for TSHTF; do it regardless. Your and your Family's safety & survival always comes first. Beware of what your neighbors will do if you're prepared and they're not.

State and local resistance to the detention provisions contained in the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) continues to grow, rapidly-emerging as a nationwide movement against the illegal and unconstitutional Federal Jack-Booted-Thugs' powers.

America is already being turned into a giant prison camp, and 90% of Americans either go along with it or don't see it happening. I do.

When prepping, always plan your survival purchases first on paper; buy them afterward.

Here's another good preparedness/precious metals website, 321 Gold. No, I don't believe in gold & silver, for what's coming. I believe in *lead & brass*/*food & water* for that situation; the other stuff comes much, much later.

Obama: "Entrepreneurs Don't Build Businesses"

"Last week, President Barack Obama delivered some telling remarks to a fire station full of people in Roanoke, Virginia. I'll save you the trouble of reading the (long and uninspired) speech and provide you with the most interesting part:

     "If you've got a business – you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen." – President Barack Obama, July 13th, 2012.

It would be easy to respond with something along the lines of, "Somebody else made that happen? Who? Who magically imagined the product or service, started the business, built it up, and created the jobs? Who was it? The tooth fairy?" And to some extent, President Obama's statement is so ridiculous as to merit that sort of quick, flippant response.

(Here's the video of that loony remark.)

However, he's not entirely wrong. This reminds me of an argument that Massachusetts Senate Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren would probably make. If he's talking about a mid-sized or large business, where an entrepreneur has hired additional employees, then at that point the business's success isn't purely that of its founder.

Employees add value to a business through work and ideas. That's why you hire employees, after all. Steve Jobs didn't invent every last detail of the phones, computers, and tablets to come out of Apple over the last decade. There were engineers working on those products who developed them. So, employees help entrepreneurs to build their business. "Somebody else" did indeed play a part in making that happen.

But what makes the president's remarks so inane is the totality of what he's saying. He's not saying that entrepreneurs and employees work together to build a business. It's not a collaborative effort. It's all thanks to the employees. Usually, I can understand the way the president's mind works on most issues by examining it through a pragmatic, liberal, or progressive framework. This one baffles me.

As I explained, I can see that he has some of a point, but he's still just obviously wrong on the broader point. Sure, the employees help to build the business, but the business itself wouldn't exist without the entrepreneur. So, to say to entrepreneurs and to business owners, "...you didn't build that. Somebody else made that happen," is just wrong. It's silly. They did build that by setting the foundation for the business.

Entrepreneurs are almost always the hardest workers in their business. They work a simply insane number of hours to get their idea off the ground. If they succeed (and they face a tremendous risk if they don't), then they'll start to grow and to hire employees to help. Honestly, if I were an entrepreneur and I read those remarks by the president, I would be furious. It's a tremendous insult to the true job-creators in America, entrepreneurs.

In the context of a long, somewhat rambling campaign speech that touched on every issue under the sun, it may seem as though I'm over-exaggerating the importance of a minor thing he said. But President Obama isn't a stupid man, or even one who makes off-the-cuff remarks he doesn't really mean. He's a very smart man, and he meant what he said.

When the most important issues for most Americans are economic growth and job creation, I believe it's essential to know exactly where both candidates stand on the importance of entrepreneurs.

Liberal Media BS

The most insidious power of the corrupt, criminal liberal media, is the power to ignore the truth.

Here, have some fun. Something stinks within America's newsrooms. It's the stench of liberal bias permeating the so-called mainstream media. From lies and deceit to distortions and character assassinations, the liberal media dish out leftist BS to drive their radical agenda.

Chris Plante, host of The Chris Plante Show on WMAL (DC) from 9-12, weekdays, said, "The most insidious power the media has, if the power to ignore." Think about what that really means and you can readily see what an evil force the corrupt, criminal, liberal-demokkkRAT-controlled, butt-kissing, fawning circlefest media assholes, are.

Think you can detect it? Take this test and find out just how much BS the liberal media are dishing out. Wear your hip-waders; the bullshit is deep!
