How America Has Fallen – The Abominations of Trump

There is an Old Testament proverb that is attributed to the Jewish King Solomon that I recall to mind each Easter Season. This season this year seems an appropriate time to set it out because rarely if ever has one man captured all the things that the Lord considers an abomination. It is from Proverbs 6:16 – 19.

“There are six things that the LORD strongly dislikes, seven that are an abomination to him:

  • haughty eyes, has anyone ever seen Trump’s eyes. They fit the dictionary definition of haughty perfectly. “blatantly and disdainfully proud : having or showing an attitude of superiority and contempt for people or things perceived to be inferior.

 

  • a lying tongue Think of WikiLeaks. You must recall the numberless times Trump referred to it during his campaign. He even held up a paper  saying “I love WikiLeaks.” When asked about it after the arrest of Julian Assange he said, “I know nothing about WikiLeaks, it’s not my thing.”

 

He lied. Hardly an eye was batted. The person holding the highest office in the land has lied so much that it fails to bother anyone. There is present day America – a country that lacks shame. No wonder the rich parents corrupt their children getting them into college.

 

  • hands that shed innocent blood – let us consider the children of those seeking asylum in this country who were separated from their parents some of whom died in body and others in spirit. Innocents all.

 

  • a heart that devises wicked plans – his whole life dedicated to hurting those who stand in his way by his many bankruptcies hurting the suppliers and working folk and his various dalliances with women and people like Jeffrey Epstein.

 

  • feet that make haste to run to evil – think of his support and association of the Saudi Crown Price, his fawning over Kim Jong Un, his embracing the brutal dictator el=Sisi, Duterte, Putin, and Erdogan.

 

  • a false witness who breathes out lies, – the one thing we know for sure is that is Trump’s real stock in trade.

 

  • one who sows discord among brothers.  He thrives in setting one group of Americans against another. He tramples truth and appeals to hatred. His attacks most recently on the Muslim Congresswoman over her statements pretending because she was Muslim she approved of the 9/11 attacks. His stories about caravans of unwashed and unwanted people coming to America. His “America is full” rants.

We have a leader of our country that flouts the word of the Lord.  Tragically,  people who pass themselves off as pastors, ministers and other religious representatives of the Lord not only remain silent about these abomination but suggest Trump has been sent by the Lord. Truly, they bear false witness.

Encompassing all the abominations, which few will deny,  the most constant one is his lying tongue. Also during this Easter season I thank  the Lord I live in this country. I recall the lesson I learned about George Washington and the cherry tree. What was it he supposedly said?  What was it that made us feel good about America”s first president aside from his courage? We believe he was a man of truth.

Do you appreciate the courageous acts of Washington? He could only do them being a man of truth. Some have even suggested a connection between truth and courage. Think of the many men and women who sacrificed for others. What they have in common is an allegiance to the truth?

Trump has an allegiance to the lie.

  1. Here’s what’s wrong with the “I’m for a woman’s right to choose” position.
    Do you defend a woman’s right to choose to kill her five year old child, one year old child, one day old child, newborn, being born (partial birth abortion) healthy nine month term pre-born, healthy-six month “viable” pre-born . . .they almost all are “viable” if you don’t kill them . . .

    When does a person’s choice to kill irk you? Never? Never, when a woman chooses to kill? Never when a woman chooses to kill the child (human being) she carries in her womb? Never when the human being is less than 3 inches in length?

    “I support a woman’s right to choose” is like “I stand with accusers (even false ones))”

    Where do you draw the line?

  2. Happy Easter Monday Irish Uprising in Dublin, 1916, 103rd Anniversary thereof: Yeats’ 1916, “A terrible beauty was born.”

    I used to like the days when conservatives and liberals debated. Bill Buckley would get three guys and Alan Dershowitz would get three guys and they’d sit down facing each other for a couple of hours and at the end shake hands, and we, the television audience, would all learn a lot on a Sunday Afternoon.

    Today, all the LEFTIES do is throw stones at people: Racist, sexist, homophobe, orange hair! Reason has been impaled on the altar of Political Correctness, Identity Politics, and “HATE SPEECH” which is any expression that offends a Liberal-Leftie.

    Give me the Good Old Days when folks debated and kicked around IDEAS.

    1. Here’s an idea: Muellar’s Investigation was corrupt ab initio, from the get go, from the second he put the key in the ignition, because he assembled a biased team of pro-Hillary, pro-Dem investigators. His report was corrupt because he pretends to EXONERATE… ….NO INVESTIGATORS ROLE IS TO EXCULPATE, PROVE THE NEGATIVE…….Muellar’s report simply should have stated NO COLLUSION, NO CONCLUSIONS ON ANY OTHER ALLEGED MISCONDUCT

      NO COLLUSION, NO CONCLUSIONS . . . .the end of MUELLAR, a corrupt investigator assembling a biased team of investigators, yacking out of school , , ,basically, Muellar devolved into a CHARACTER ASSASSIN . . . .a MUD SLINGER . . .a RUMOR MONGER . . .a FORKED TONGUE

    2. “Today, all the LEFTIES do is throw stones at people:”

      Like this line is doing????? You’re throwing stones on every post! I know you can see. Can read and write. Can you comprehend?

      I worked with a guy in Bethesda doing one huge kitchen for nine months. He was an ultra conservative. The FIRST complaint he had, after telling me that he was an ultra conservative, was that left wingers have to let you know they are left wingers as soon as they meet you. This from a guy that told me he was a Limbaugh Conservative within ten minutes of meeting me.

      I think the biggest difference between left and right wingers is that left wingers are dumb and right wingers are ignorant.

      I know you have given out this information a few times, but I am ignorant of the details. Where does one find copies of your books?

  3. Now, here’s something I wanted to say when the judges, lawyers, cops were discussing the new DA’s plan to go light on the simple possession of heroin/dangerous drugs.

    In MEDICINE, the pediatricians have a WELL BABY clinic . . .it’s boring . . .routine exam of healthy children . . .BUT, every once in a while a CANCER is detected early, and a life is saved . . .they cure 80-90% of childhood cancers these days in the good old USA

    So, too, Judges may see hundreds of boring drug/alcohol cases every day . . .minor possession cases . . .but if they can get one person into AA or off of Heroin/Crack/Coke/Opiods, THE COURT SYSTEM TOO CAN SAVE LIVES . . .

    So, don’t lighten up on ROUTINE, PERIODIC SCREENING, INTERVENTION, APPREHENSION, ARREST AND RUNNING THE DRUG POSSESSORS/ALCOHOL ABUSERS THROUGH THE SYSTEM . . . . .IT SAVES LIVES

  4. When I asked my old friend (WHO IS ONLY 8 YEARS OLDER THAN ME) who was once my psychiatrist in the late 1970s why I keep fighting people, his exact words were, “It’s good for you, Billy, it keeps your JUICES flowing.”

    So, as I see it, I am under medical orders, medical advice, to KEEP FIGHTING because it KEEPS MY JUICES FLOWING.

  5. AND, Mitt Romney will go down in history as the spineless politician who fired a brilliant honorable accomplished employee with a clean record BECAUSE the employee’s brother was a criminal,
    but mostly because THE BOSTON GLOBE TOLD HIM (ROMNEY) TO FIRE THE HONORABLE WILLIAM F. BULGER, PRESIDENT OF THE UNIVERSITY OF MASSACHUSETTS, AND PRIOR THERETO THE LONGEST SERVING SENATE PRESIDENT IN MASSACHUSETTS HISTORY, WHO SERVED PUBLICLY FOR FIFTY YEARS WITHOUT A BLEMISH ON HIS RECORD, NOT ONE MISDEMEANOR.

    I AGREE WITH MIKE HUCKABEE, I FEAR FOR A COUNTRY THAT CAME CLOSE TO NOMINATING AND ELECTING THE LIKES OF MITT ROMNEY FOR PRESIDENT . . .

  6. AND HERE’S WHY LIBERALS AND LEFTISTS cannot accept the fact that millions of intelligent well educated fair minded moral Americans voted for Trump:

    They have been taught . . .no they have been TOLD by BIG BROTHER, by the Boston Globe, Washington Post, New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, Major Media outlets, many Academics, NOT JUST to oppose Trump’s policies and positions, but to HATE TRUMP, and they do HATE HIM . . .THEY NOW REACT VISCERALLY WITH HATRED TO HIS PICTURE, HIS NAME, HIS WORDS, HIS ACTIONS . .

    THEY HAVE BEEN TAUGHT AND TOLD IN ORWELLIAN TERMS THAT TRUMP IS A MAN WITH ZERO REDEEMING HUMAN QUALITIES, AND THAT IT IS RIGHT TO hate him . . .hate him, , ,let the sight of him make you SICK

    In my life, the reporting and commentary about President elect Trump by the New York Times, CNN, MSNBC, Boston Globe and other liberal-leftist news outlets (rags, all yellow journals today) has been the most Hateful, biased, unbalanced, unfair, I’ve ever seen in my lifetime . . . .It is as if the entire Main Stream Media took a cue from the Boston Globe’s outright Hatred of Bill Bulger and directed venom ten times worse against President Trump

    I liked Bill Clinton and Barack Obama, but disagreed with many of their Big Government liberal policies

    The Left today HATES, VISCERALLY HATES PRESIDENT TRUMP . . .IT IS A BLIND HATRED ENGENDRED BY THE LEFTIST MEDIA . . .IT FIRST MANIFESTED ITSELF WITH THE PUSSYMARCHERS WHO COULD NOT ACCEPT THE FACT THAT HILLARY WAS DEFEATED . . . .PRIOR THERETO, MANY HILLARY SUPPORTERS IN THE MEDIA WERE VIRTUALLY PSYCHOTICALLY DISTRAUGHT THAT HILLARY LOST, AND THEIR KNEE JERK REACTION WAS TO TURN THEIR DISAPPOINTMENT INTO HATRED DIRECTED AGAINST PRESIDENT TRUMP

    I’VE NEVER READ SUCH HATEFUL BIASED REPORTING

    AND MANY READERS OF NEW YORK TIMES AND LISTENERS OF CNN/MSNBC NOW VISCERALLY HATE PRESIDENT TRUMP . . . .and they think honorable intelligent moral people should be ashamed for not hating him

    HATE, BLIND HATE, has replaced reasoned opposition

    1. “AND HERE’S WHY LIBERALS AND LEFTISTS cannot accept the fact that millions of intelligent well educated fair minded moral Americans voted for Trump:”

      BILL!!!! Seriously. Get on with your life. I’ll fix it for you.

      “AND HERE’S WHY BILL cannot accept the fact that millions of intelligent well educated fair minded moral Americans did not vote for Trump:”

      1. Abe, what you do not apprehend, is I do accept the fact that millions of intelligent well educated Americans disagree with me . . . .
        Also, getting on with my life is writing . . . .I write, I play the keyboards, I work out daily . . .I want to die punching, or in the sack . . .I said to a psychiatrist, Martin Kelly, I’d seen in the late 1970s, whom I bumped into recently, “Marty, How come I’m always fighting people, . . .you know, writing angry letters to the editor, standing up to bullies?” He said, “It’s good for you Billy, it keeps your blood flowing.”

        So fighting is good for me; sparring verbally is my life; and I’ve always recognized and accepted folks don’t agree with me. So what. The anti-Trumpers cannot accept the fact that millions of good intelligent folks support Trump.

        2. On the pro-life issue: I wonder if those who are pro-choice would support a woman’s right to choose to kill a newborn? or one year old?

        My remedy is simple. REQUIRE MEDICAL PERSONNEL WHENEVER POSSIBLE TO DO EVERYTHING WITHIN THEIR POWER TO SAVE BOTH LIVES . . .THE LIFE OF THE PREGNANT WOMAN AND THE LIFE OF THE UNBORN HUMAN BEING SHE CARRIES IN HER WOMB . . . .only when it is not medically possible to save both, would the LAW IN MY SOCIETY allow one human life to be taken . . . .ex. ectopic pregnancy, fetus with no head, 12 year old rape victim who would commit suicide or whose life would be seriously endangered by carrying the pregnancy to term

        Tnere is a right to kill in self defense . . .in defense of your own life or in defense of others . . . .to defend yourself, for example, you could kill a totally innocent human being unknowingly carrying a bomb about to explode in your direction . . . .In the Middle East, bombs were strapped on innocent young persons and directed towards soldiers or civilian targets, for examples

        So, sure, some people think killing human beings is morally acceptable under a whole range of circumstances I’d not accept . . .but what can one do but to write and speak his mind, in an attempt to persuade, or illuminate, or educate?

  7. Notice how a quote from the Bible has set us all to the swords…..where are the guys with the plows?
    Isn’t it Good Friday, Holy Week, Easter Season, Passover?

    But, let’s never forget Yeats poem , and the terrible beauty that was born that Easter Monday Morn, when the Deplorables became the Rabble in Arms and Connolly and Pearse and Perkins and all took on all comers , , ,

    Up the Republic . . .long live the Deplorables

  8. Honest Abe, gave a beautiful tribute to the changing of the guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier . . .adding to it was the scene of the 25 WWII Russian Veterans . . .

    See the Movie, SEVASTOPOL, one Russian-Ukrainian woman sniper with over 300 kills of enemy INVADING German soldiers . . .Invasion ordered by the evil Hitler and his consummately evil Nazi Killing Machine launched it . . . the woman sniper was hosted at the White HOuse by Eleanor Roosevelt . . .the movie SEVASTOPOL shows some of the horrors of war . . .

    NEVER FORGET . . .and never forget that it was the PROPAGANDISTS AND HATE MONGERS who led the NAZIS TO POWER

    My friend Larry Tye, one of the few good former employees of the Globe, wrote a book about the rise of Propaganda in the Advertising Industry, and it took its cues from the Nazi Propagandists, many of whom were MEDIA TYPES . . .

    BEWARE TODAY’S LEFTIST PROPAGANDISTS IN THE MEDIA, ACADEMIA AND FEDS, THE HILLARY SUPPORTERS, THE HILLARIANS, so called

      1. Why, do you doubt me, Dave? I’ve studied these matters. I’ve lived. I’ve reflected. I’m from Savin Hill.

        Plus, I ponder the meaning of meaning.

        How about you pitchin your two cents in?

        Read Spiritual Glue and Three Billboards Outside Boston . .they’ll clear up all your doubts and answer all your questions . . .so long as you are a questioning person

        You know, we’ve been taught that the question is the answer . . .keep asking questions

        I know

        You question

          1. Dave :

            C’mon …. He is a Witty bastard !!!

            Started laughing as soon as I saw that One Statement of Faith by which our Billy truly lives .

            We can Lighten up here . Among Friends

  9. I understand the anti-Democratic sentiments of the Trumpies ( I have a few of my own for the far left), what I cannot fathom is the enthusiastic fawning adoration of a man that represents the worst in what we were taught to hold dear…..fealty, loyalty, honesty, humility, and help for the weak and less fortunate.

    He mocks our heritage. Disgraceful.

    1. He is the Cultural Silver Bullet ; Panacea ; Anodyne for whatever is ailing his haters . The grandiosity of the numerous claims against his personal, professional and political virtues underscores the existential desperation of humans who dehumanize him in proportion to their own inhumanity .

      OTHERWISE HE IS NOT A BAD GUY .

    2. I score Trump high on fealty, loyalty to family, wife, American traditional values, pro-life, pro-conservative traditionalistic judges, not leftist ad libbers.
      I hole Trump honest to sticking to his conservative credo in appointing conservative pro-life jurists, keeping American strong, getting troops home, raising wages for all, better economy.
      Humility . . . he is humble enough to give up his billions to serve the American People in Office, and the bulk of us Deplorables like the service he is rendering

      Hutch, with the same facts, you, Matt and I and many others draw entirely different conclusions

      1. Except he hasn’t divested from his businesses, tries to put his thumb on the Fed for raising interest rates which impact his untold millions in loans, was so loyal to his wife he had sex with a porn star right after she gave birth, loves american traditional values so much he loathes the 1st amendment, obstructs justice on instinct, is so anti-war he vetoed Congresses’ attempt to end the war in Yemen, LIES to AMERICA about GLOBAL WARMING, and still profits off of his businesses like Trump Hotel in DC and is paid for access at Mar – a Lago.

        Quite frankly anyone who votes for this person, supports his policies, or believes any of the drivel you just said should be absolutely ashamed of themselves. Your groveling at the feet of this conman is disgusting.

        1. Now let’s think for ourselves. 50% of long term married men have had an extracurricular affair . . .they’ve been FAITHFUL . . . one robin does not make a Spring

          every financial related act he takes as President will impact his millions, as every one of Bill Clinton’s impacted he and Hillary’s millions

          he loves the First Amendment, and rightfully labels the LEFTIST MEDIA, PROPAGANDISTS, LIKE THE NYT, CNN, ETC, enemies of the AMerican People . . .what pen or voice do you know has he stilled? Unlike your Leftist Pals who tried to shut down the St Pat’s Parade case, who shut off conservatives on college campus, and who want Speech Codes and Hate Speech laws imposed on America

          Never ever even been INDICTED for obstructing justice, never mind convicted…..WHAT ABOUT INNOCENT UNTIL PROVEN GUILTY IN A COURT OF LAW IN AMERICA…..OH FORGET AMERICAN VALUES, LET’S ENGAGE IN character assassination, smears, name calling, innuendos

          Yes, I agree with you it is a mistake to continue the war in Yemen . . .the Clintons and Obamas were the war starters supporting the Saudi’s there, and the wars in Libya, Syria, and the rest of the MIddle East . . .TRUMP IS TRYING TO END THE MIDDLE EAST WARS . . ..I like his strong support of Israel

          YOU REALLY HAVE TO STUDY THIS ISSUE OF GLOBAL WARMING AND NOT BE HYSTERICAL ABOUT IT …..we need reasonable environmental regulations, unlike chicken little and al gore’s sky is falling pie in sky end times overreactions

          It is not against the law for President’s to profit while in office . . .bill and Hillary made over 100 million

          FRANKLY DAVE, it is you WHO SHOULD BE ASHAMED of your shoddy, shallow, leftist agitprop . . .many who still support the leftists like Hillary are beneath contempt, IN MY HUMBLE OPINION

          I AM A PROUD VOTER FOR TRUMP, A PROUD VOTER AGAINST HILLARY AND THE HILLARIANS, A VERY PROUD PRO-LIFE TRADITIONALIST, CONSERVATIVE, DEPLORABLE AMERICAN, FROM SAVIN HILL, JUST ANOTHER SAVIN HILL BILLY, MADE OF THE RIGHT STUFF, not fooled by the drivel and deceit of the leftists

          1. I want to ask you a serious question….did you stretch out before you tied yourself in knots defending the orange fool? I hope so or you might pull a muscle.

          1. “Are you still beating the Langley bullrushes Abelah ?”

            Jew bet! And its Fairfax County.

            Have you ever attended the changing of the guard at The Tomb Of The Unknown Soldiers in Arlington Cemetery? Come on down and I’ll show you where to stand to get the best view of the inspection of the incoming guard and his rifle. It is amazing. I have probably been there for it fifty times. (And a one minute walk down the hill to the south is where Joe Louis and his wife are buried.) The first time I saw the changing was on a cold December day 25 years ago. Light snow about 25 degrees. There was a group of Russian WWII vets taking a tour of Washington. Maybe thirty of them. They were all in civilian clothes but wearing their medals. Every single one of them was crying when the ceremony was over. So moving. I didn’t tear up but man, it wouldn’t have taken much.

            That invitation goes to one and all on this blog.

          2. Rain check Abe. Did see a PBS on the Tomb Guard sentinels who walk that . The Old Guard. 3rd US Infantry out of Fort Myers . All volunteers . It was about ten years ago , but think a focus was on a new Tomb Guard sentinel and the watchful Sergeant who made sure these elite soldiers got it right.

            Verrrrry Detail Oriented !!!

            Tx for a gracious invite, Abe

          3. Abe :

            Do me a flavor.

            YouTube THE RIDE

            It is an Amanda Palmer song.

            I am telling you right now You WILL Cry before you are through listening .

            If you don’t then I owe you a steak dinner down the road.

            She is VERY DIFFERENT from any singer you will ever hear.

            TRUST ME .

          4. Ok. Here’s the story, John. I made it halfway through the song. Yesterday was the one year anniversary of the death of one of my best friends down here. He was a true Southern Gentleman and lived 9 years with pulmonary fibrosis. The doctor gave him three but he was strong. Next Monday is the one year anniversary of another great buddy’s death from Portsmouth NH. Cancer of the throat. In three weeks will be the one year anniversary of a friend’s death that hung himself leaving three children and a wife. So that song is off limits for a while. It sounded like a wonderful song, but not now.

    1. Matt believes what he writes. He believes the Old Testament eye for an eye philosophy, constantly throwing stones, unforgiving, not accepting losses like the Pussymarchers . . .Matt believes if you look at a man’s eyes, his physiognomy, perhaps his slant eyes, bug eyes, puffy eyes, beady eyes, you can conclude he is an ABOMINATION as He and Hillary concluded half of Americans were DEPLORABLES and no one could ever vote for Trump

      1. Bill:

        Take a Deep Breath

        Relax

        Don’t start a rant now about how you can’t relax and this is not the time etc

        Enjoy your writing a good deal . You have a funny irreverent style when not overwrought.

        People generally cannot be convinced by argument, vociferous or not, to change their politics .

        Stop beating your head against that Wall.

        People will wind you up anytime they want if they know you react with anger

        Matt is expert as a former prosecutor at Needling Questions.

        He chastises you like an unruly child .

        Let’s get beyond the Usual .

  10. What crapola!

    You take a verse about “shedding blood” into separating children which happens every time a parent is taken into custody. You mention shedding blood of innocents and forget every abortion is a bloody killing act which kills and innocent human being, and your party favors it, and you condone it by abiding within it, silently, mutely, barely uttering a word agin it.

    You take of petty misdirections as if they were the CIA telling us there Weapons of Mass Destruction in Iraq. Who exactly were the liars? The folks who instigated the wars in Syria, Libya, the Balkans against the Serbs favoring the KLA taking Kosovo from Serbia or the ones who gave the Ukrainians five billion dollars to vote anti Russian?

    Who has more blood on his hands the pro-abortionists, the pro-war mongering interventionists like Hillary, or the pro strong national defense like Ike, Truman and Trump.

    Trump’s not a liar. He’s TRUE MAN, like Harry Truman. He’s not full of lawyerish gibberish . . .he tells it like it is, like he sees it, he’s a good pro life, pro business, pro family, pro traditional values president, like Ike and Truman . . .he’s a good American . . . .he’s against Hillary, the HIllarians, the leftists and the Pussy Marchers.

    The problem today is VALUEPHOBIA . . .and the leftist liberal DE<S have lost all values with their Big Government, Tax and Spend, Social Engineering, Pro ABortion, Identity Politics

    No one engenders more hate than the Identity Politics folks on the liberal left who keep pointing fingers at everyone calling them racists, sexists, homophobes and deplorables, and standing up for nothing but more abortions and more Big Government for the Black Robes and Suits

    Trump's doing a good job, he's a good man . . . . .it's the left and power abusers that need values and need to be purges

    As C.S. Lewis wrote, The Tao Ties Taut . . .

    1. ” . . .he tells it like it is, like he sees it, he’s a good pro life, pro business, pro family, pro traditional values president….”

      This is the biggest line of bullshit ever printed.

      Pro life? Find some reality and stick with it.

      1. HOnest Abe is into George Orwell’s 1984 Newspeak where being anti-abortion, against the killing act that takes over one million human lives a year is NOT PRO LIFE.

        YES, TRUMP, JUSTICE KAVANAUGH, THOMAS SOWELL, PAT BUCHANON AND I ARE rightfully considered pro-life, AND THOSE who support the Hillarian’s Regime and Roe v. Wade Regimen of virtual abortion on demand are ANTI-LIFE.

        If you favor killing unborn human beings, get off your high horse.

        1. I’m anti-abortion. That is for me and no one else. I am pro choice as long as the law says a woman can make that choice. I have a good imagination and I imagine that if I had a life growing inside of me, a human life, in any stage of development, I could not end that life. Remember what I told you about my father’s belief which I follow as well. A Reverence For Life. The good doctor-organist, in Africa will always be one of my main inspirations. I believe life begins at conception if it is a successful act.

          Pat Buchanon wanders around here and I run into him from time to time. I have had long conversations with Newt, McCain and in one wonderful fifteen minute moment Art Monk and I chewed the fat about catfishing.

          The most extraordinary encounter happened in the local used book store. The owner, Chet Hansen, Ret. Colonel USMC, was on Abrams’ staff in Vietnam and had lots of contacts around here. Chet and I were buddies and he knew my personality well. So I walk in after a day of work to browse. He’s talking to some suit and just glances up and give me a “How’s it going?” I said, “Busy day, Chet. I’ve been selling coke to the kids over at McLean High.”

          He gave me a stern look, which was not unlike him, and says, “I’d like to meet my friend here, Mister William Bennett.” He was not amused even slightly.

          I also met the man, in that shop, that administers water-boarding at GITMO. Weak handshake.

          1. I, TOO, am an Albert Schweitzer Reverence for Life Guy . . .I prefer Tom Sowell and Bill Buckley I revered, he had wit and a good heart, like Don Rickles, could cut you to shreds but did so with a heart of gold . . . .I also met a young woman in a mini skirt reaching for a book halfway up a ladder in Denver Colorado . . .I do not know what possessed me, but I hesitated to stand too close, until she party descended . . .she was a very attractive coed . . .we talked . . .turned out it was F. Scott Fitzgerald’s GRAND NIECE, in school in Denver, …..I was delightfully amazed . . .I had visited F. Scott Fitzgerald’s home in Oxford Mississippi as I’d visited the football stadium at Ole Miss and as I’d visited Elvis Presley’s house and Elvis Presley Lake in Tupelo, nearby, and and and I also visited Ernest Hemingway’s Home in the last key of the Florida Keys . . .what great Americans we all have had the privilege of knowing and bumping into . . .and the coeds were and are THE BEST

          2. Bill :

            Love Bill Buckley. Met him twice in Cambridge mid- eighties and early nineties . The first meeting a passage by each other on a cold rainy October day when he stared fixedly and gave me the Blackford Oaks right index finger rub across the bridge of the nose ; my Cambridge Spymaster Big Bill . The second time much more involved and over the course of an afternoon and into dusk when he and his mates on a Trans Atlantic crossing in his sleek and opulent yacht THE SEALESTIAL sic were killing time waiting to catch the tide. Get a copy of ATLANTIC HIGH . This was written about that crossing ; which was a feat , albeit in a world class sloop , that required Class Seamanship .

            He was a Celestial Navigator

            Miss the guy. Not anyone I can think of comes close in these shallow watered times.

      1. Dave:

        We’ve interacted civilly here before .

        You know I avoid political squabbles because. as partially explained to Bill, people are generally adamantine in their political views.

        ” He is one of the worst Americans ever to hold public office . ” Seems to be your rational proposition. Abe is quite articulate and enjoys , revels, in argument.

        ” Stop embarrassing yourself ” leaves no SPACE for him to do so.

        OTW THIS TURNS INTO A BOSTON HERALD COMMENT PAGE # ATROCIOUS

      2. Dave, we proud Americans put President Trump into office . . .we are proud to be called Deplorables and Savin Hill Billys. We the few, the happy few, the proud, the standing tall, THE PRO-LIFE, anti-killing of innocent human beings in the womb, anti-Hillarian Wars of Intervention in the Middle East, anti TAX AND SPEND SOCIAL-DEMOCRATS, for SMALL GOVERNMENT, Against Government Unions, Against corrupt Media, Academia leftists, and against Power Abusing FEDs . . . .read my 9 books . . .the 10th was never published (it was the first, THE SAVIALLIANS: THE STORY OF A CELTIC PEOPLE, 1,00 pages)

        read them and weep while you face the facts of life

        THE DEPLORABLES WON THE LAST ELECTION . . .THE DEPLORABLES, LES MISERABLES, THE RABBLE IN ARMS, ARE ON THE RISE, ONCE AGAIN

        UP THE REPUBLIC

        TO THE STOCKADES WITH LEFTIST POWER ABUSERS AND THEIR SYCOPHANTIC LEFTIST IDENTITY POLITICS HILLARIAN HENCHMEN

        1. I SAID to my friend and former high school and college classmate, Joe Burns (he was a good baseball player on Jerry York’s teams) and is now college Provost at BC, I said, “Joe, I’ve written ten books nobody ever reads.” He said, “Billy, everyone on this campus has written ten books nobody ever reads.”

          Such are the plights and perils of writers and musicians . . .I still enjoy playing the piano/keyboards an hour a day . . .nobody listens anymore . .. .I listen . . .I like the vibes . . .I like to play . . .I like to write . . .I like to work out daily . . .I like coeds

          1. Dave, from all I have read I understand this: The Russians’ unsuccessfully attempted to hack or did hack a few computers (election related) and did not change ONE VOTE . . .also from everything I’ve read, all total Russians spent a staggering $160,000 on ADs during the election . . .neutral ads, favorable to neither party . . .that changed not one vote anyone can measure . . . .IN CONTRAST, HILLARY’S MACHINE SPENT TWO BILLION DOLLARS ON HER CAMPAIGN, that is $2,000,000,000, and lost to Trump in 80% of the counties in America . . .subtract California and New York, and she lost the popular vote throughout the Rest of America, too . . .as I understand it

            Dave, what you have trouble accepting is that millions and millions of thoughtful intelligent Americans chose Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton for President

  11. First he was Hitler. Then he was a Russian asset but Mueller disproved that. Now he is an abomination. So progress is being made. Almost 6 million new jobs in two plus years. Obama only had nine million in eight years. Happy days are here again.

    1. “First he was Hitler.”

      Maybe he could arrange for Jessie Owens to get his medals back.

      There’s a new drink on the market called L.T.F.U. Give it a try.

      Now back to the show.

    2. Wa-llahi! Fear not fatuous fascist following, Glorious Leader was cast from Schickelgruber’s mold. He’ll never lose his Hitlerian pretentions. His Dad was from Germany.

      1. Khalid, German-Americans are the largest ethnic group in America . . .one out of three of the Special Forces, Army Rangers, that landed on Normandy on D-Day were Americans of German Descent.

        You and Matt have to get off the Hitler Analogy, more aptly applied to HIllary and her legions of interventionistic Hillarians, anyway.

        Dialectic Materialism is a failed philosophy of Marx.

        1. Bill:

          How would you logically dispute dialectical materialism on philosophic grounds? Where, and, how, does dialectic materialism depart from the Hegelian dialectic? I’m looking forward to a thinking man’s discussion. Comment at length. I’ll read it.

          1. Khalid , You are going to Hegel in a Handbasket.

            Tell some stories for Chrissake

            They die otherwise .

          2. First of all, are we going to be talking about someone that has a metaphysical valuation of his fellow man that has its source in the idea of the imperishable value of the human soul? Fagedaboutit! (Sorry, but I always lean towards Jung in matters like this.)

            I’d rather talk about Roger Penrose. If thought IS matter, the whole world view will be shattered and put back together again like never before. The aboriginal people of Australia are right and Dream Time is real! Where’s Ms Freesh?

          3. Abe :

            THE LAST WAVE … Peter Weir … Director … ’77 …

            You will love this film . esp the Opening .

            IT WAS ALL A DREAM .
