The Deplorable Infidel




The whistleblower is now pretty well outed by investigative journalist Paul Sperry, and it’s underwhelming. He’s been identified as on Eric Ciaramella, 33, prep school grad, Yalie, Obama backwash, political operative, and fanatic Trump=hater. Hardly the Mister Probity concerned about national security that’s been painted. Sperry did the digging but pointed out that that the man’s identity had been an open secret in the Beltway, with the mainstream media doing their darnest to keep his name from being attached to his rather spectacular charges. Federal documents reveal that 33-year old Ciaremella, a registered Democrat held over from the Obama White House, previously worked with former Vice President Joe Biden and former CIA Director john Brennan, a vocal critic of President Trump who helped initiate the Russia “collusion” investigation of the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

Ciaramella’s name should be out there because it’s relevant whether all the hearsay in his legally couched charge was actually made in good faith or was just another leftist smear job under cover of government mechanisms, same as the Steele dossier. Based on Sperry’s digging, it certainly looks like the latter.

From Sperry’s reporting, we learn that this creep wasn’t trying to make anything better within government, which is what whistleblower protections are for. He was just another leftist trying to overturn the 2016 election, and it dated from way back, starting with his propensity to leak. He got kicked out of the NSC for suspected leaking, something other people have been jailed for. It raises questions as to why the heck this guy even ended up at CIA, drawing a likely six-figure salary and big bennies. He doesn’t even sound security clearance-worthy, given his propensity to leak. Tight-lipped he wasn’t.

Because all of the news about this whistleblower the Democrats are trying to shield reveals a coordinated strategy of leaks and legal plotting. The only reason to keep Ciaramella’s name secret would be to shield the Democrats themselves from scrutiny about their pre-planned and coordinated plotting with this Trump-hating deep stater, because this whistleblowing wasn’t about malfeasance, it was all about political power. It was all coordinated, it was all preplanned with Schiff. The leaks, the hangings out with like-minded officials, the evidence of political connections, the coziness and wonderfully advantageous maneuvers with Schiff point to a tainted, politically motivated and very unreliable witness, a guy who’s supposedly a dispassionate CIA analyst but now exposed as a wannabe political operative with a very tainted political patron. What we learn ultimately from Sperry is that Schiff needs to recuse himself from his sham because he was right in the middle of it from the beginning and his efforts to keep Ciaramella’s identity secret were efforts to protect himself. As for Ciaramella, he ought to be fired, and working now for an organization more compatible with his inclinations, political operativity and bureaucratic dishonesty … some place like Fusion GPS.

We have heard a lot lately about Washington whistleblowers. The most notorious Washington whistleblower was Monica Lewinsky. She was constantly blowing Bill Clinton’s whistle.



Nowhere in the Constitution does it say you can impeach a president because you don’t like him.

Moving Bar Graph showing Oil Production by Country

Click on to watch the moving bar graph.This is a fascinating chart.  Be sure to take the time to watch it to the end, it may surprise you.While we all like to complain about the price of fuel, this may help you understand why we are paying so much less for gasoline than much of the rest of the world. Also notice that Venezuela and Libya, once major producers, are no longer on the chart.

An Old Prospector

An old prospector shuffled into town leading an old tired mule. The old man headed straight for the only saloon to clear his parched throat.

He walked up and tied his old mule to the hitch rail. As he stood there, brushing some of the dust from his face and clothes, a young gunslinger stepped out of the saloon with a gun in one hand and a bottle of whiskey in the other.

The young gunslinger looked at the old man and laughed, saying. “Hey old man, have you ever danced?”

The old man looked up at the gunslinger and said. “No, I never did dance… never really wanted to.”

A crowd had gathered as the gunslinger grinned and said. “Well, you old fool, you’re gonna dance now.” And started shooting at the old man’s feet. The old prospector, not wanting to get a toe blown off, started hopping around like a flea on a hot skillet. Everybody was laughing, fit to be tied. When his last bullet had been fired, the young gunslinger, still laughing, holstered his gun and turned around to go back into the saloon.

The old man turned to his pack mule, pulled out a double-barreled shotgun, and cocked both hammers. The loud clicks carried clearly through the desert air. The crowd stopped laughing immediately. The young gunslinger heard the sounds too and he turned around very slowly. The silence was almost deafening.

The crowd watched as the young gunman stared at the old timer and the large gaping holes of those twin barrels, which never wavered in the old man’s hands, as he quietly said. “Son, have you ever licked a mule’s ass?”

The gunslinger swallowed hard and said.
“No, sir….. but… I’ve always wanted to!”

There are lessons here:

 Never be arrogant.

 Don’t waste ammunition.

Whiskey makes you think you’re smarter than you are.

Always, always make sure you know who has the power.

Don’t mess with old men, they didn’t get old by being stupid.

I just love a story with a happy ending, don’t you?

The Bull Sale

My wife and I went to the Calgary Bull Sale & Agricultural Show and one of the first exhibits we stopped at was the breeding bulls. We went up to the first pen and there was a sign attached that said,


My wife playfully nudged me in the ribs ……smiled and said, ‘He mated 50 times last year, that’s almost once a week.’

We walked to the second pen which had a sign attached that said,

My wife gave me a healthy jab and said, ‘WOW~~That’s more than twice a week ! ………..You could learn a lot from him.’

We walked to the third pen and it had a sign attached that said, in capital letters,

‘My wife was so excited that her elbow nearly broke my ribs, and said,
‘That’s once a day ..You could REALLY learn something from this one.’

I looked at her and said,
‘Go over and ask him if every time was with the same old cow.’

My condition has been upgraded from critical to stable and I should eventually make a full recovery.


Keeping up with the Jones’ or is it the Smiths?


A woman is in bed with her lover one night when her husband comes home expectantly from his night shift. The lover panics and is looking for somewhere to hide:

The woman tell her lover to stand quietly in the corner of the bedroom and not move. She then covers him with baby oil and then talcum powder.

The husband enters the bedroom, gets undressed and as he is walking over to get into bed he notices the lover standing in the corner.

“What the hell is this?” He asks his wife.

“That is a statue that I bought today at the markets. The Smiths down the street have one just like it and I liked it so much I thought I would get one for our bedroom too.”

The husband decides he is hungry and goes down to the kitchen to make himself a sandwich.

After a while he comes back to the bedroom with a sandwich and a cup of coffee. He walks up to the lover standing in the corner and offers him the cup of coffee, saying….

“I was up at the Smiths the other night and they didn’t even offer me a glass of water!”





The Editor:  Are you ready for Halloween, LL ?

Satan Cat:  I sure am.  Halloween is fun, but not like in ancient Egypt.  Cats were shown the respect they deserved.

The Middle Ages were a curse on cats.  We became associated with witches and Satan.

TE:  Are you scaring kids this Halloween, SC ?

I sure am.  Costumes and things are hard to get this year.  Most witches went back to Europe until the Dems finish their hunt.  Cloven hooves and horns have all been bought by the impeachment Dems.  Sulfur and brimstone can only be found in the secret impeachment dungeon. 

Here is some history.

This is horrifying…..

Do you remember when obama made the statement that America is no longer a Christian nation? Do you remember the happiness and pride in his voice as he made the statement? If so, this will disgust you just as it did me as the years pass and you watch the green line of Islam Sunni consume the other religions.

Dear Hank Ashmore: The Deplorable Infidel

Good afternoon, Hank.

If it were in my power, I would make your  FOOD FOR THOUGHT post in today’s edition of Tolley’s Topics required reading for every American.  I would make MSM read it twice and the Democrats in congress memorize and recite it!

Well done, my friend.

The Deplorable Infidel




One of the world’s most important genocidaires of the 21st century era is dead. After numerous false reports to this effect over the past five years, it does appear that President Trump and American special forces have accomplished the assassination of ISIS leader al-Baghdadi. The rhetorical ramifications of this success are profound and worthy of consideration:


The killing of Baghdadi and destruction of ISIS saves the lives of Muslims

At least 50,000 Muslims were killed by ISIS across the region of Iraq and Syria in the past five years. President Trump’s leadership in this important theater of the War on Terror saved tens of thousands of Muslims. A failure to appreciate and commend this within our public culture should be condemned for what it is: Islamophobic. Barack Obama conducted more than 20,000 airstrikes during his eight-year term and yet this “JV” team gained territory and committed sensational atrocities primarily against their fellow Muslims. Failures to celebrate this key American victory suggest favoritism toward killing Muslims and a desire for the further genocide of the Kurds.


Baghdadi is not a moral or intellectual model for the future

It is genuinely sad that this must be pointed out to our present intellectual culture. It is worth noting that American comedian, Kathy Griffin, was inspired by the genocidal behaviors of Baghdadi’s loyalist to offer the bloody severed head of President Trump as a comedic trophy in her “performance art.” Griffin apologized and then un-apologized for the imitation of the regular beheading of ISIS victims like the Christians killed on the shores of North Africa. The reactionary effort to portray President Trump as worse than or even comparable to any known force of evil including Hitler, Stalin, and yes, Baghdadi, is a dangerous propaganda path.


Trump’s demeaning descriptions of Baghdadi’s death are prudent

Bin Laden’s body was disposed at sea in deference to Islamic custom. Obama’s advisors theorized that in respecting Bin Laden as a legitimate Islamic leader America would curry favor in the Muslim world. This was a mistake and helped facilitate the further escalation that would follow in ISIS’ emergence from Al Qaeda in 2014. Bin Laden was correct prior to his attacks on 9/11 when he argued that the world follows the leader on the “strong horse” and described America as a paper tiger. The strong horse status of the United States and symbolic humiliation of Baghdadi is necessary to reduce the attraction of such leaders. Valorizing Bin Laden with a respectful burial was like providing government respect to Klan members killing civil rights workers in the 1960s. It could not possibly help the cause of human justice.

Kayla Mueller, an American hostage was captured by ISIS, tortured, abused, raped by al-Baghdadi himself and then murdered. The operation to get Baghdadi was named “Operation Kayla Mueller.” Her fingernails were ripped out. She refused to renounce her Christian faith while being an ISIS captive. All Americans and all of humanity should be glad that Baghdadi is dead. He embodied evil and we should not try to romanticize  his crimes or offer some tedious critique of our own imperfections in seeking his end. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi decries the failure to inform her of this impending attack. This is an audacious rhetorical appeal since she recently walked out of a military briefing on Syria for the apparent purposes of a photo-op with her colleague Senator Chuck Schumer. Other democrats stayed for the White House briefing and likely learned details relevant to this latest success by American forces. Baghdadi was a common enemy of all  humanity. He was a monster. Any failure to unite in victory over his death is more than appeasement of his genocidal vision, it is tacit approval and encouragement of such deaths as text. Understanding these successes and symbolic missteps can bring us closer to the realistic end of genocide in the 21st century.

“If our country is to survive and prosper, we must summon the courage to condemn and reject the liberal agenda, before it’s too late.”

-Walter Williams-



The Washington Post referred to al-Baghdadi as an “austere religious scholar at the helm of an Islamic State.”



An impeachment is nothing more than an indictment and you know what they say about indictments, “you can indict a ham sandwich.” The truth what the moron America hating Democrats are trying to do to President Trump will come out when the trial begins in the Senate.



This is for the NBA.

Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were ever our countrymen.”

The Letter…

Image result for letter to dad

A father passing by his son’s bedroom was astonished to see that his bed was nicely made and everything was picked up. Then he saw an envelope, propped up prominently on the pillow that was addressed to  ‘Dad.’   With the worst premonition he opened the envelope with trembling hands  and read the letter.


Dear Dad:

It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you.

I have been finding real passion with Stacy and she is so nice.   But I knew you would not approve of her because of all her piercings, tattoos, tight motorcycle clothes and the fact that she is much older than I am. But it’s not only the passion…Dad, she’s pregnant.

Stacy said that we will be very happy.  She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.   Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana doesn’t really hurt anyone.   We’ll be growing it for ourselves and trading it with the other people that live nearby for cocaine and ecstasy.

In the meantime we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS so Stacy can get better. She deserves it.

Don’t worry Dad. I’m 15 and I know how to take care of myself.   Someday I’m sure that we will be back to visit so that you can get to know your grandchildren.


Your Son John

P,S.  Dad, none of the above is true.  I’m over at Tommy’s house.  I Just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than a report card that’s in my center desk drawer.

I love you.  Call me when it’s safe to come home.
