It seems I’m just no longer with the times. Apparently throwing things like eggs and snowballs at cars traveling on freeways (dangerous enough in its own respect) doesn’t get a rise among children anymore. Because kids have “graduated” to throwing much more dangerous objects at cars from freeway overpasses.
In May of last year, an 18-year-old in Philadelphia was charged with throwing railroad spikes and rocks from an overpass onto cars passing below, all for the fun of it. I actually needed to see it to believe it:
Centre County DA Stacy Parks Miller
Last night, a former Penn State student who had read my prior article on Pizzagate, which included a bit on Jerry Sandusky and a former Centre County DA, sent me an article about current Centre County DA Stacy Parks Miller. The article detailed her involvement in creating a fake Facebook profile to spy on people involved with cases she was trying:
Centre County District Attorney Stacy Parks Miller told employees in 2011 that she’d created a fake Facebook page to “snoop” on “defendants or witnesses,” according to an email attached to a court filing last week.
Billy Penn reported in March last year that the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s Disciplinary Board investigated Parks Miller after rumors circulated about the maneuver among the legal community. It’s unclear if that investigation continues, and disciplinary board investigations are confidential.
The whole story was quite intriguing, and I decided to do a little bit of investigation into Parks Miller and the allegations against her. Lo and behold, the fake Facebook profile accusation was hardly the first allegation Parks Miller has had against her during her tenure as DA.
This weekend, hundreds of thousands of protesters descended on Washington DC and many other other cities across our nation. The aim of the protests was to demonstrate women’s rights, and use female disgust for Trump’s alleged lack of respect for women as a springboard to protesting Trump’s inauguration as the 45th President of the United States.
The farcical and hypocritical nature of the “women’s rights” protest was on display from the get-go, as they were focused on Trump alone, with no mention of another womanizer in attendance at Trump’s Inauguration, who just so happened to be a former President of the United States as well. Notably, his womanizing was on full display, as he ogled Ivanka (or was it Melania?) Trump at the Inauguration:
On Friday January 20th, Donald Trump will take office as President of the United States, replacing Barack Obama. Eight years prior, when Obama took office, the Dow Jones was at 7,929, the S&P 500 was at 805.22, and the Feb 2009 unemployment rate was 8.3%. During Obama’s tenure, the stock market has risen considerably while the unemployment rate has gone down substantially. As of Friday January 6th of 2017, the Dow was up 251%, at 19,980, the S&P 500 was up 283% at 2279.22, and as of the most recent report, the unemployment rate is now down almost half, to 4.7%. If those are the only indicators you were to look at, you would think that Obama’s presidency has been a remarkable recovery from market meltdown that occurred in 2008.
If things are going so great and the Democratic party has done such a remarkable job, how is it that Donald Trump was able to convince so many people (including myself) that he was the best option for this country?
On Monday, 10 inmates at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba were transferred to Oman by order of President Obama. This is not the first time Oman has accepted prisoners transferred from the facility, though the majority of Guantanamo detainees are transferred to Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, and Yemen. Though the prisoners are initially transferred to prison facilities within the country accepting them, they are often quickly released by the accepting countries, and in some cases they are able to escape from custody and/or monitoring. And though Oman is considered to be relatively stable compared to Yemen and Saudi Arabia, it is still a third world country on the Arabian peninsula, and is said to have been compromised by Al-Qaeda affiliates infiltrating the country by way of Yemen.
It is baffling that Obama thinks transferring these high-risk individuals to Muslim or third world countries is a good idea, especially considering the countries in question have prison facilities are far less safe, and are often compromised from within. But what makes it even worse is when you take a closer look at the detainees that have been transferred out of US custody.
Donald Trump Jr. Firing Suppressed Rifle
The first push for gun rights in the upcoming Trump administration is already shaping up, and Trump hasn’t even taken office yet.
The Hearing Protection Act of 2017 (HPA) was introduced a week ago today, on Monday January 9th. The bill is aimed at removing suppressors from regulation under the National Firearms Act (NFA), which requires an extremely difficult application process and a $200 “tax stamp” to “transfer” ownership from one individual to another. The NRA sums up the truth on suppressors and the HPA below:
On Tuesday, January 3rd, Ted Cruz kept his word, and formally introduced a constitutional amendment in Congress that would impose term limits of three two-year terms for House representatives, and two six-year terms for Senators. Several outlets covered it, mostly conservative ones, since the amendment was co-sponsored by another Republican, Ron DeSantis of Florida. But since the announcement, its been crickets from the media on the issue.
It’s quite amazing, that an issue with as much popular support as Term Limits has received such little media coverage. How is it that an issue like this isn’t being covered more frequently by major media?
At times, the anti-Trump crowd truly is good for a laugh. They hate Trump enough to create a boycott list containing companies that are allegedly pro-Trump and/or offer Trump-branded merchandise, for use as a guide on which companies to avoid when purchasing consumer goods. But the boycott list the #GrabYourWallet group put together includes the country’s two largest retailers, who just so happen to have actively campaigned for Hillary Clinton and against Donald Trump.
Working under a .org website titled and marketed under the hashtag #GrabYourWallet, the group’s homepage contains a spreadsheet detailing retailers that should be boycotted, which Trump merchandise the particular retailers carry, the best contact points to reach the retailers in question, and what to say when contacting the retailers.
The website is as amusing as it is indicative of liberal hubris, as the whole charade is actually just another item in the long list of private enterprise collaborations with government that have turned into colossal failures. Just take a look at a segment of #GrabYourWallet’s mission statement which describes its history:

On Tuesday, president-elect Trump tweeted about General Motors, stating the GM was building its Chevrolet Cruze in Mexico, importing them to the US tax-free, and selling them at US car dealers:
GM quickly denied Trump’s tweet, and in a press release that same day, the company claimed that all Cruze sedans sold in the US are “built in GM’s assembly plant in Lordstown, Ohio”, and that GM builds the Cruze hatchback for global markets in Mexico, with only a small percentage being sold in the US…
China’s J-20 Fighter Prototype
It may sound hard to believe, and it might not intuitively make sense, but China is indeed fielding a fleet of 5th generation and 4++ generation fighter jets whose primary purpose will not be to do battle with American fighter jets.
Why? It’s quite simple. China likely knows that they cannot build a jet that will outperform the top US air superiority fighter, the F-22. So instead of going toe-to-toe with it in combat, they are instead choosing to target the aerial tankers, AWACS, drone, and other support aircraft that help make the F-22 so deadly.
