“Two men, aged 18 and 20, who are both from Afghanistan, were arrested in the city at the weekend for gang raping a Swedish women in Uppsala, Sweden where the rape was posted on line. HERE. Reuters denied it HERE. What is wrong with the Reuters? Answer: they are anti-Trump and ruined their reputation as a fair, objective news source because of it.
This is a sensual album that will cause you to slow down and contemplate. Chris Botti is one of the smoothest trumpeters ever. He has a light lyrical touch that’s quite the opposite of say a Sousa march. This album is Romantic music. A smooth set of notes.
This music transports you to another place and time. The fist selection is by Chopin, delicious as interpreted by Botti.
Chris received the Grammy Award for Best Pop Instrumental Album award. He deserved it although the music is of a higher level than “Pop” .
MUSIC IN POLITICS AND IN TERRORISM.
The duduk is a mid-Eastern double reed flute that’s thousands of years old. Hear it here: DuDuk (Do Dook) music masterfully played by Pedro Eustache (Duduk), Samvel Yervinyan (Violin) at a Yanni concert in memory of the Armenian genocide victims of 1915. Mournful, heartwrenching and full of grief. Compare that with this wildly enthusiastic violin music at a Yanni concert. VIOLINS . There’s a big, big cultural difference going on in music as well as in the other parts of the cultures of the Mid East compared to the West.
Are people from the mid-East Dangerous? Yes, some are. How do we know people are from dangerous places. One way is to test them for their musical preferences. At least that will identify from where they originate compared to being in the dark and having to ban everyone. Music can help identify different cultures, not so much because different cultures prefer different types and styles of music but in the absence of information a questioner can at least identify a region by preferences in music. .
The “leaks” from inside the Trump administration and the which hunt by the press has happened before. Judge Clarence Thomas called his vetting and attacks by the Left “A High Tech Lynching”. Remember the Witch Trials in Salem Massachusetts, Watergate, Monica and the Blue Dress, Iran-Contra. The Washington Post and the New York Times, use continual, venomous, unscrupulous, inventive, and sometimes unlawful stories to try to sell their pspers using invented facts. President Trump calls them “Fake News” and “Really Fake News”.
The purpose of the Left media is to damage America by bringing down a president. The Fake News programs are simple propaganda designed to create hysteria against all reason, balance, and consideration for America.
How can someone who doesn’t seem all that great at anything be great at something?
Obama was elected President of the U.S. That’s one of the greatest accomplishments open to people and that proves he is great at something. What good things did he do as president? What bad or wrong things? Did the good outweigh the bad?
IMO, no. The biggest wrong thing president Obama did was increase the division between black and white Americans, starting with his defense of Professor Gates. Professor Gates is a black professor at Harvard who gave attitude to a white police officer. Obama defended Gates against the police officer. Obama declared the police “acted stupidly” by arresting a man who was seen and reported to be breaking into a home, a charge that was completely true.
Obama condemned George Zimmerman who was being beaten by and therefore shot Trayvon Martin. Obama thereby violated Zimmerman’s individual and civil rights.
Obama was on a mission to take down the high opinions of America held around the world. He embarked on what was described as “an apology tour” “America Has Shown Arrogance”, “We Have Not Been Perfect”, “At Times We Sought to Dictate Our Termspology for the War on Terror (“We Went off Course”), his apology for the War on Terror (“We Went off Course”); He apologized for Guantanamo in France (“Sacrificing Your Values”); Apology before the Turkish Parliament (“Our Own Darker Periods in Our History”); Apology for U.S. Policy toward the Americas (“The United States Has Not Pursued and Sustained Engagement with Our Neighbors”); Apology for the CIA (“Potentially We’ve Made Some Mistakes”); Obama made another big mistake praising the dictatorship of the Castro’s in Cuba.
The sooner he leaves the stage the better off American’s will be. On balance, Obama has been an embarrassing mistake for America.It’s proper to ask: “did he do anything right?” Sure, but on balance he’s been wrong and bad for America.
Immigration is today’s hot button issue. America was built by them so lets get bigger by getting more immigrants –but what about the quality of the imports? Are immigrants better or worse for America? What about immigrants from the president’s seven banned countries? It comes down to jellybeans. If you know one jellybean is fatal would you eat a few?
Despite the high coincidence of terrorists with Islam, the president didn’t ban terrorists because that’s impossible for two reasons. One, the religious outcry and two the inhumanity. Neither is dispositive.
Terrorists look like the other jellybeans. The president can’t ban jellybeans. Since it’s impossible to identify terrorists it’s inhumane to try. The SJW’s win. Let all in.
Immigrants are not citizens by definition. Like jellybeans they aren’t all fatal but there are a small number of exceptions. You can feed, clothe and house the exceptions if you like but not where they are dangerous which is to say, not here.
H-1B visas mean the alien doesn’t want to be an American citizen. A green card is an H1-B visa that lasts for 10 years. These aliens aren’t citizens. Do some want to be citizens? That desire doesn’t make them safe jellybeans, does it?
The curve of hate is half of a bell-shaped curve that has hate on one end and love on the other. Both hate and love exist in the same brain but they are opposites. But opposites cancel each other so how can opposites exist? They can’t. Not in the same way for the same things so love doesn’t cancel hate.
Hate propels people in good or bad directions. Some people attempt to mitigate their hate by thinking “I hate Trump but I love ice cream” i.e., by showing how they possess love thinking their love of something offsets their hate of some other thing but of course the things are different so the hate isn’t offset by the love. Ayn Rand wrote: “To arrive at a contradiction is to confess an error in one’s thinking; to maintain a contradiction is to abdicate one’s mind and to evict oneself from the realm of reality.” In other words, that person is crazy.
Normal people; i.e., rational thinking people cannot hate President Trump. As time goes on more people come to accept that Donald J. won the election just as Obama did. Their sharp edged hate towards him will lessen. It’s like coming down from winning which is to say coming up from the depression and anger at losing. Far too many people are taking an American presidential election too personally. MLK sad: “darkness cannot drive out darkness, only light can do that.” When it comes to hate however there’s the middle ground where many people stay. They nurse their hate; feeding it to keep it alive in their soul until they can spring against some Trump supporters throat so watch out for signs that signal such dangers and keep back until their rationality returns.
McCain who lost his bid to become president said on Friday that the administration of President Donald Trump was in “disarray” despite the presidents assurance his administration is running like a fine machine. It’s not usually a problem when Americans disagree with the president but sometimes it reveals a traitor like when Jane Fonda say in a North Vietnamese anti-aircraft gun wearing a North Vietnamese military helmet and smiled for the cameras. Same goes for McCain whose hostility against President Trump like Jane Fonda’s against America is the opposite of a patriot.
Senator Rand Paul said: McCain has a history of being wrong major foreign policy questions.
“I would say John McCain’s been wrong on just about everything over the last four decades. He advocated for the Iraq War, which I think destabilized the Middle East,” he said..
On the friends list put Rush Limbaugh and the 63 million who voted for Donald John. Obama’s turned out to be a very hateful cur who is showing his hidden-until-now skunk stripe. A dastard anti-America man-child mess. Add the mainstream media and the low class Democrats like Pelosi and Schumer who are so jealous Trump isn’t a Democrat.
