I have moved my business to the new training center and the open house is this Saturday, May 27th at 11:30 AM. There were some kinks and some bright spots to get to this point. There was one area in our infrastructure which I was very pleased with initially: phone and Internet access. We did some research and setup a Verizon hot spot for Internet access at home and the office. The hook was twofold: unlimited Internet access and a faster connection than DSL.
But then everyone knows what is coming next. Imagine our surprise at getting 12.9 Mbits instead of 1.5 Mbits with the new system. Until the fine print kicked in at 10 GB and we were throttled down to 1.5 Mbits pending the next 30 day cycle. Verizon’s response was typical: they are working on it.
Multiple emails later with no response has led to the next cycle where I was expecting 12.9 Mbits again for a period of time. However, the new speedtest is now 0.4 Mbits. At least I do not have to worry about the 10 Gbit cutoff since our new “Internet access” has effectively throttled us.

There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations.”
— James Madison, Speech to the Virginia Ratifying Convention [June 16, 1788]
…the opinion which gives to the judges the right to decide what laws are constitutional and what not, not only for themselves in their own sphere of action but for the Legislature and Executive also in their spheres, would make the Judiciary a despotic branch.”
— Thomas Jefferson
As I witness the ongoing leftist opposition and media bias against individual freedom, I realize how wise were those who drafted our constitution. All governments move toward total control. Given history, I am at a loss to explain why anyone could support tyranny over personal freedom. History does show us, however, that Big Government generally prevails and promptly destroys those who have helped them achieve control.
Sen. Rand Paul (R – KY) intends to force a vote in the Senate on the record US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, a deal which the Trump Administration has estimated will be worth some $350 billion over the decade.
I know that this country was not founded upon arming other countries for death and destruction. Trump is touting the success of the Saudi arms deal as “jobs, jobs, jobs”. Just like the “jobs” at Planned Parenthood. Do you think the Lord will count a job measured in deaths as a “good work”?
There can be no denial that islam is ultimately and irredeemably evil, and that those who embrace it intend to destroy every last shred of Western Society. There is only ONE legitimate response to such an existential threat – go on the offensive and destroy the threat…totally.
As I have been saying for well over a decade now, the one legitimate and effective response is to go on the offense against islam. Period.
Kill every last muslim,
Burn every last copy of their satanic book.
Burn every last mosque to the ground.
Burn every last dwelling they have occupied,
And wherever you must burn,
Salt the ground heavily.
MAKE NO EXCEPTIONS
TAKE NO EXCUSES
We can start by nuking Mecca and Medina immediately, with the promise that *any* further act of jihad, no matter how small or remote the target, will result in the nuclear annihilation of the 10 largest muslim-majority cities worldwide. That warning would serve as sufficient notice for any non-muslims who are paying attention to leave those cities, immediately. Those who remain will have chosen their allies, and thus their fate. So be it.
To this end, we should provision as many of our naval ships as possible with nuclear armed cruise-missiles, and should put our entire strategic aviation fleet on hot standby to deliver our highest-yield hydrogen bombs to the larger and more deserving targets, with alacrity.
The American citizenry financed those ships, bombers, missiles, and warheads, with the entire face value of our society, upon the promise that those weapons would be used to protect us from such existential threats –
it’s about time we got some return on our investment.
Until we buck up and start treating all of islam at least as harshly as we treated the Nazis during WWII, we’re not even trying to solve the problem. Only those in the habit of lying to themselves could possibly deny this plain fact, at this late date.
WE HAVE BEEN WARNED
This article’s title comes from John Whitehead’s piece below. It does not matter what you call the reason for the collapse of the Republic. It does matter what you will do in this new paradigm. No matter how you label it, Liberty has been replaced with slavery.
No doubt about it.
The coup d’etat has been successful.
The Deep State—a.k.a. the police state a.k.a. the military industrial complex—has taken over.
Enter Donald Trump, the candidate who swore to drain the swamp in Washington DC.
Instead of putting an end to the corruption, however, Trump has paved the way for lobbyists, corporations, the military industrial complex, and the Deep State to feast on the carcass of the dying American republic.
Just recently, for instance, Trump agreed to sell Saudi Arabia more than $110 billion in military weapons.
The president has labelled Islamic terrorists as “losers”. Labels are used to deflect the truth: the true evil is Islam. This is another justification by the West to appease. If the Western leaders called hardened jihadists “losers”, do you think they will take a timeout in a safe zone?
The current death count in Manchester is 22.
It appears the world is now sensitized to Islamic terrorism. World leaders condemn the terror publicly while endorsing it privately for their own political gain.
15 of the 19 hijackers in the 911 attacks were Saudi Arabian nationals.
The Saudi government aided the terrorists. It took an act of Congress and a Congressional override of Obama’s veto to allow the victims of 911 to sue the Saudi government on Sept. 28, 2016. Do you remember the national outrage against Obama’s support of Saudi sponsored terrorism in the United States?
Trump is celebrated for “signing a joint strategic vision that includes $110 billion in American arms sales and other new investments [in Saudi Arabia] that the administration said would bring hundreds of thousands of jobs”.
The people continue to get the government that they deserve.
President Trump made a splashy debut on the world stage here Saturday, ushering in a new era in U.S.-Saudi Arabian relations by signing a joint “strategic vision” that includes $110 billion in American arms sales and other new investments that the administration said would bring hundreds of thousands of jobs.
“It was a great day,” Trump said. He cited “tremendous investments in the United States . . . and jobs, jobs, jobs.”
Did you know that there are different types of zombie voters:
1. The illegal alien zombie.
2. The still dead in the ground zombie.
3. The welfare zombie.
4. The workfare zombie.
5. The rest of the Democrats who voted.
If you make a list of financial warning signs, the one below is in the top five. The Checklist Manifesto outlines how to organize your operations more efficiently.
New York is not alone it seems: As Bloomberg adds, Judge Brendan Shannon from Delaware said he has also seen an uptick in Chapter 11s and Chapter 15s, though not as marked as in New York. Shannon also sees trend in retail and energy sector bankruptcies continuing, based on current cases.
The culprit? Take one guess:
“The report is that for at least a lot of retailers, it is certainly a difficult, if not flat out impossible environment to operate in,” Shannon said. “We do see more of those cases likely on the horizon.”
A little known fact about the Civil War, War Between the States, War of Northern Aggression is that most Cherokee Native American fought for the Confederacy. Stand Watie (meaning ‘ stand firm’) was the last Confederate General to surrender and was also the highest ranking officer who was a Native American on either the Confederate side or Union side.
Bankruptcy is like the ultimate get out of jail free card. You just get to wipe the slate clean, and even though your credit score and ability to borrow might suffer, you are free from all your previous obligations. But student loans have long been exempted from being erased by bankruptcy.
If this bill passes Congress however, hundreds of billions of currently delinquent student loans, potentially as much as $1.4 trillion worth of student loan debt…
