Interesting Video Of Hillary Clinton Seemingly Being Dragged Into Vehicle

Watch this video:

I just watched it a few times and besides noticing how Clinton was being supported by the barrier, and how she stumbled when she tried to walk, I also noticed that right after 15 second mark the Secret Service Agents are literally dragging her. You can clearly see that her right foot evidently is not moving under her power at all and it seems obvious it is scraping the ground as she is dragged and pushed into the vehicle.  If she recovers, there is little doubt in my mind some Secret Service Agents will be losing their jobs or wind up being transferred, if she is elected, if only because they did not completely block the view of the guy with the camera.

I figure it is either a serious health issue (which has been bandied about for weeks now after some other issues like her coughing spree), or that it is stress related and she just cannot take the run for the presidency (and thus could never take being president), or that she is shitfaced or stoned, or that she is seeking sympathy and acting. I tend to think it is a serious health issue but that is just my guess.

I would say hip-hip-hooray the Wicked Witch of Little Rock is melting but I am not an evil son of a bitch and I cannot do so simply because I am not made of the same stuff as is she. Then again, I wish I was a forgiving and or tolerant enough person to wish her get well wishes for a speedy recovery but I cannot find it in me. I cannot tolerate her or forgive her for what I believe are her plans for us if she is elected as president and she has made those plans evident - to turn us into a tyrannized and divided rights depleted and overtaxed nation with her as the tyrant. It is not that I am wishing she gets worse or dies or anything like that, I just cannot and will not wish her well because I truly think she is trying to destroy our constitutional republic - the United States of America.

Donald Trump may not be perfect but I believe he is one heck of a better choice than is she for the presidency.

A hat tip to New Jovian Thunderbolt where I first saw the video.

All the best (except to her and others like her),

Ted Cruz Was Right...

...when he said that conservatives should vote their conscience but maybe for a reason other than he was thinking at the time. Laura Ingram says it better than anyone I have heard or read so far:

It is a bit of a long read but well worth your time to read every last word of it especially if you are considering not voting at all or voting for someone other than Donald Trump.

If The North Koreans Get It - Why Don't Our Governments?

"North Korea said on Sunday a push for further sanctions following its fifth and biggest nuclear test was “laughable”, and vowed to continue to strengthen its nuclear power." (Source.)

The governments that keep imposing sanction after sanctions onto North Korea for violating just about everything possible in regards to agreements and treaties covering their nuclear development, especially as relative to nuclear weapons, are evidently full of mindless idiots. Even after North Korea itself has admitted that the use of sanctions against that country is laughable you can bet our politicians will continue relying on sanctions that have had little effect and that will do little to nothing to prevent North Korea from someday using those weapons against us or our allies Maybe it is about time that we stop joking and start nuking - as fry them before they fry us.

All the best,

Three Women Fire Bomb Police Station In Mombasa

Before reading the article, I bet myself that the three "robed" women who fire bombed a police station in Mombasa, Kenya were not Catholic nuns and...I won the bet.

Remembering 9/11 In A Personal Way

How can we as a nation ever forget or forgive the attacks of September 11, 2001!

Not long in time before 9/11.

Looking down from west of the site. The Custom House is in the
foreground just past the green roof of the World Financial Center.
The remains of it and one of the towers, in the courtyard, take up
entire right side of the photo. Remains of 7 WTC rubble pile to left,
spanning Vessey St. and breaching Custom House evidence vault.

Rubble pile (either the same one or similar to one from 7 WTC) that
spread across Vessey St. to the south side of the Custom House.
 A coworker and I, accompanied by recue workers, climbed over
 the debris pile to access a customs vault to secure evidence on
the Friday night after the attacks. It was scary to say the least.
The Custom House - luckily all personnel had evacuated.

Part of a wall from 1 WTC leaning up against
the Custom House as viewed from the east.
 I did not take any of the above photos. I got the WTC photos I have here and there on the Internet and from coworkers who either took some or found them online. I was a Special Agent with Customs at the time and as luck had it, I was in CT for some training on the day itself. I went to the site over the course of part of two days to help with rescue and recovery efforts; that was a few days after the attacks. Anyway, these pics have personal meaning for me so I saved them. Figured I would share them again.

Besides looking at those pictures this morning, I also took a look at what amounted to my insurance claim after the attacks. I had been assigned to 6 WTC since around June of 2001 and also had been assigned full time duties as a firearms instructor. It was Paradise but did not last long. Anyway, I have a Word file saved in the same folder as the photos. It is amazing how many things came to mind when I looked over the personal items I lost (some like a few of my pistols being recovered and returned to me later). Memories of work assignments, of details to other offices like a trip to Arizona and another to Haiti and just a reminder of how long I have been taking my current high blood pressure medicine were all brought back by reading through the list of items I lost. It is hard to believe it has been 15 years since then as those memories while a bit faded by time are still pretty strong.

Of course, the photos, my insurance claim and my memories only show a very small bit of the big picture. The towers burning, crumbling to dust, the thousands killed or wounded, the folks leaping to their certain deaths from high stories in desperate attempts to flee the flames, the heroes who gave some and those who gave all trying to save others by running into the towers to help, the thousands fleeing down the streets as the towers collapsed, the regular folks (non-emergency workers) who volunteered and flocked to the site to help in anyway they could, the nation coming together unified in cause even if only briefly, that is the real story of 9/11.

I think: That we have cowered under the regimes of two feckless presidents since then who have not retaliated with all of our nation's might (although one tried much harder than the other in seeking to destroy our enemies) against each and every country that played a part in planning, carrying out or facilitating these attacks; that we consider some of those countries as allies; that we did not execute each and every terrorist at Guantanamo; those are all the shame of it. That we released prisoners who subsequently again plotted or actually took part in  later attacks against our troops or involved themselves again in terrorism against other nations, and that we have allowed Islamic Terrorists to form groups such as ISIS and thus to continue a reign of terror is the disgrace of it. That some in our country actually believed and still believe that our own government had some sort of conspiratorial hand in the attacks is the insanity of it.

I truly believe, we should never forget and never forgive. I believe we should do all we can do to protect our nation and her people and that means we need to fight terrorism without reservation and destroy terrorists either until they all have breathed their last breaths or we have breathed ours. We should always remember and honor our fallen, we should stand unified as a nation in avenging them and most of all, it should be personal for all of us!
All the best,
