These are the facts: Research them if you have doubts. Ms. Harris was not a poor little black girl riding across town in old worn out school buses and being beaten up by white kids as she so testifies.
Bill Shuey has a unique writing style which allows him to act as an observer of the action that is taking place. He describes what he sees without the use of profanity or explicit sexual descriptions. To date Bill Shuey has written a total of 18 books, the last two will be published in late 2020. Bill is a member of the Western Writers’ Association.
Kamala Harris Emhoff is Joseph Biden’s selection for vice-president. Here are a few facts about Ms. Harris.
1. Ms. Harris is touted as “black,” she has characterized herself as “American.”
2. Ms. Harris has characterized herself as a poor little girl of color. Ms. Harris’ mother, Shyamala Gopalan, was a cancer researcher and civil rights activist. Ms. Harris’ father, Donald Harris holds a Doctor of Philosophy degree from the University of California and has been a college professor for years. Not exactly a family history of poverty.
3. Ms. Harris claims that, on visits to her father, she wasn’t allowed to play with the white children in his neighborhood. While this claim is dubious at best, it would indicate that Mr. Harris lived in an upper middle-class neighborhood. Again, a status of privilege.
4. The late Ms. Gopalan and Dr. Harris didn’t immigrate to the United States because it was a horrible racist oppressive nation, they came here for the greater opportunity and found success.
5. Dr. Harris and Ms. Gopalan were well off enough to fund two daughters’ college education and law school. Not the thing of poverty.
6. Ms. Harris isn’t black, she at best is a duke’s mixture of bi-racial genetics. If she is Mulatto, it comes from her father and he would be a second, third, or more generation African by way of Jamaica, not the United States. Therefore, she certainly isn’t a hyphenated African-American. Perhaps she could accurately claim Indian-American or Jamaican-American.
7. In this ongoing chatterer regarding white privilege, I can’t think of anyone who better represents privilege more than Ms. Harris. She grew up in upper middle class surroundings, attended a first rate college and law school, and has lived the American dream since. She has about as much in common with the average black as this writer has with a Martian.
8. Ms. Harris’ parents are naturalized citizens. I doubt that the main stream media will have any curiosity regarding when they received their United States citizenship, but if it was after Kamala’s birth, that would make her an anchor baby and unable to become president.
9. Ms. Gopalan immigrated in 1960. Mr. Harris in 1961. When either applied for citizenship and when it was granted for either is unknown.
10. The Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 requires an alien to apply for a petition for naturalization. Before applying, an alien must be at least 18 years old and must have been lawfully admitted to live permanently in the United States. He must have lived in the United States for five years and for the last six months in the state where he seeks to be naturalized. Unless the Nationality Act was somehow bypassed, Ms. Gopalan couldn’t have been a citizen prior to 1965 and Mr. Harris before 1966. Kamala Harris was born October 20, 1964.
11. Since Ms. Harris is a naturalized citizen, it would appear that neither of her parents were an American citizen at the time of her birth. Otherwise, why would she need to be naturalized?
12. Mr. Biden is suffering from the early onset of dementia and will continue to decline in cerebral awareness. I’ve seen this condition in a couple of my now dead friends, and it is day to day deterioration; some days being better than others. Finally, either gradually or overnight, Mr. Biden will lose his grip on reality. Given his current condition, I doubt it will take four years to become an acute condition. In the case of one of my friends who showed mild dementia, he gave a presentation, finished, walked to his car, and had no idea where he lived. His mental awareness departed just that quickly and never returned.
13. Lastly, if the Democrats are elected to the White House, presuming she is constitutionally eligible, Ms. Harris will become the second bi-racial president. People should vote for the candidate of their choice, but in this situation, they should understand they are actually voting for Kamala Harris for president when they go to the polls. If she isn’t a “natural born” (the offspring of at least one American citizen) it will open a bucket of worms and cause a constitutional crisis to go along with our other ongoing messes.
Even spookier…If Sleepy Joe is elected….the Dems will immediately load him onto that Twenty-Fifth Amendment Gurney and cart him to the local Nut-House For The Senile. Then Kamala will be sworn in as our president…..BUT OOPS!…she is not a “natural born” (the offspring of at least one American citizen), so she cannot be sworn in, at this point…..we will see our first female president be sworn in…Madam Speaker: Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi.
Every once in a while I find myself reflecting on many of the things I hear and see going on in our country. I think back to the prescient words of Abraham Lincoln, “a house divided cannot stand,” and it fills me with a sense of anxiety and concern. Here are a few of the things I don’t understand and would welcome answers to:
1. New York City voted to defund the police. These, along with firefighters and EMTs were the same people who ran into the burning and collapsing Twin Towers to rescue people. Many of them perished on that fateful day. Who will be willing to run into the flames of the next attack or the next school shooting where the lives of our children and teachers are at risk?
2. The Democratic candidate for President, Joe Biden committed himself to choose a “woman of color” for his running mate for Vice President. Has it ever occurred to anyone that choosing a candidate on the basis of skin color is racist?
3. The United States Government whose military includes “Tomahawk Cruise Missles” and “Apache”, “Blackhawk”, “Kiowa” and “Lakota” helicopters; whose Seal Team used the code name ‘Geronimo” in the raid that killed Osama bin Laden, and whose Navajo Code Talkers helped save thousands of lives in combat operations in WWII against Japan, now officially objects to the name of the Washington Redskins? How is this important to our lives today and why is it an issue?
4. I’m just wondering, but at a time when there is so much fear going on in the world about the China Coronavirus, hate-filled rhetoric of politicians in an election year, state and local governments implementing unnecessary ultra-rigorous controls over its citizenry, preventing businesses from doing business and citizens from going to church, is this really the time to take God out of our lives?
5. With so many Americans unemployed during this pandemic, why is it that our elected representatives in Congress and the Senate, as well as State Governors and City Mayors continue to receive full salaries and benefits? These people, our elected officials, made the decision to close down our economy and the jobs of millions of Americans. Why are they not held to the same standards as we the people? Why don’t they willingly forego their salaries until we defeat this assault on our nation? Maybe if they were in the same boat with the rest of us, they might be more inclined to work together developing and implementing solutions to our problems instead of continuing to have these schoolyard arguments and get nothing done?
6. It seems to me, based on their actions to date, that Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a well- funded terrorist organization dedicated to destroying businesses, tearing down monuments and memorials and wreaking havoc on American cities. So, I am all for PLM, abbreviated for Police Lives Matter. They are committed to protecting our people and our businesses and properties. Anyone with me?
When I think of Martin Luther King, I try to reflect on the times he led riots in our city streets; burned down businesses; looted stores and tore down statues. Then it dawned on me…MLK never did any of those things. Yet, he changed the world! There must be a lesson in this, don’t you agree?
7. Since I have aged a few years, I believe that I am now playing with house money. More importantly, I have reached the conclusion that the older I get, the less tolerant I am, so, when and if the BLM crew and their acolytes start causing problems for me and my neighbors, they had best be on good terms with the Lord. I tend to fight like I’m the third gorilla trying to catch a ride on Noah’s Ark when it is starting to rain!
8. When I was in school, history was a serious subject and we were taught about the American Revolution, the Civil War and slavery, WWII, the growth of our nation from an agrarian society to the industrial society and now, today, the informational society. We learned about American Exceptionalism and the fact that America saved Europe from totalitarianism twice in the twentieth century. And, in the aftermath of WWII, when the world was in complete turmoil, America went about rebuilding 17 nations of Europe under the Marshall Plan and the entire nation of Japan. I once visited Poland and the infamous Auschwitz Prison Camp where hundreds of thousands of Jews, Poles, Gypsies and Gays were tortured and murdered by the Nazis. Someone asked our guide a question: “why hasn’t this place been burned to the ground, there are such terrible memories here?” The guide responded “that is exactly why. People must know what happened here so that it never happens again.” That is why history and monuments and memorials are so vitally important. History, whether good or bad, needs to be remembered! You cannot erase history, you can only learn from it.
9. Is it a coincidence or a figment of my imagination that all of the American cities with the most violence and destruction of businesses and property are all run by Democrats? I hope everyone in America, Democrat, Republican or Independent remembers how Kamala Harris tried to ruin Brett Kavanaugh’s life and the lives of those in his family.
10. If Joe Biden knows how to fix the problems in America, how to solve the racial divide and how to improve the economic well being of Americans, why the hell didn’t he tell Obama when he was Vice President? He had eight years to do it. Isn’t it curious that having spent almost fifty years in government, he suddenly has all the answers? Oh, and by the way, if we have “systemic racism” in America, why didn’t Joe Biden tell Barack Hussein Obama, a black man, to address it and fix it?
11. Are we being quarantined until there are no more germs left in the world or just until after the election?
Why is it OK to stand in line at Home Depot, Wal-Mart, and Costco, but it suddenly is not safe to vote in person?
Can someone explain to me the rationale for the teachers union objecting to teachers returning to work unless (1) police are defunded; (2)There is Medicare for all; (3) all charter and private schools are abolished and (4) 54% of all schools have their ventilation systems improved. How does any of this justify having teachers not report to work?
12. If the U.S. Flag is racist, why did it drape the coffin of Congressman John Lewis? Equally, why did Nancy Pelosi deliver a folded flag to the widow of George Floyd, a convicted criminal?
13. Just saying, but what Coronavirus has taught me is that I can survive without the professional athlete, but I don’t think we can survive without the American soldier.
14. Why did Nancy Pelosi say that it should not be a crime to come to the United States illegally? Am I missing something?
15. Under Obama the H1N1 Virus resulted in 60.8 million infections; there was zero panic level and China was blamed. Fast forward to today, there are 4.6 million cases of coronavirus reported; the panic level is one of mass hysteria, covered 24/7 by the news cycle and Trump is blamed! Wonder why that is?
16. Many of our young men and women in college or just transitioning to the workplace are of the opinion that socialism is good and, in fact, a better economic system than capitalism. They have been taught this in our colleges and universities, but their professors must have been absent on the days they were asked to enumerate those nations where socialism has succeeded. Accepting socialism as an economic system is, in essence, admitting you cannot compete in the real world. You are essentially saying “I am willing to give up my liberty, my religion, my dreams and my property as long as the State (government) commits to taking care of me.” Accepting socialism is tantamount to accepting failure even before the challenge is raised. It is the complete opposite of the principles upon which America came into being and which so many have sacrificed their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to create.
17. Can anyone tell me why the hell you receive a tax refund if you are on welfare? How does that happen?
18. One last remark, just in case you are wondering. I am a firm, dedicated believer in the LGBT Movement:
Liberty – Guns – Bible – Trump
REMEMBER THAT WHEN THE PRESS DESPISES TRUMP THAT YOU ARE THE REAL TARGET–HIS SUPPORTERS. The Dems and MSM hate America and you.
Here is another American that might move if his candidate loses.
We all know NBC is a Democratic Septic Tank.
The Antibodies Editor: Will you take the new vaccine for the Wuhan Flu, LL ?
Monkey Not Cat: I’ll wait and see. Here is an only slightly exaggerated article on the vaccines in Ruskie Land. Can you imagine what Al Sharpton will look like ( I use Al for a subject every time the media ask Trump about white- supremacy ).
I like the Uncle Sam poster. I bet the internet name for the new shot will be the Monkey Vaccine. Here are some other vaccine articles.
TAE: A lot of Americans are fraught with anxiety, LL.
Maybe if I explain how the vaccine is made it will relieve some of the fraught-anxiety. This is in common English so almost half of people living here can understand it. A piece of dead monkey meat seized at the incoming Customs office is put in a vial of SARS-CoV-19, Wuhan Flu, Red Death, from China virus. Here is how they refine it.
This kit was originally going to be included with each vaccine, but some bureaucrats were concerned that it might be misused.
The process looks fine to me. There will be plenty of locations to get your custom order if the home kit is unavailable, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Ace Hardware, and any local paint store. A loyal reader in San Fransiko, who makes $150,000 a year removing human poop, wants to know if the needles collected can be reused ?
They sure can be reused, just dust them off. Speaking of being reused, here is a repeat of a site that refurbishes used condoms.
The Whiskey Speech
One of the craftiest orations in the history of American politics was the “Whiskey Speech,” delivered in April 1952 by a young Mississippi legislator named Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr.
The House had been debating whether to finally pop the cork on Prohibition when Sweat (later a circuit court judge and a college professor) decided to demonstrate his prowess for talking out of both sides of his mouth. The occasion was a banquet at the old King Edward Hotel in Jackson.
“My friends, I had not intended to discuss this controversial subject at this particular time. However, I want you to know that I do not shun controversy. On the contrary, I will take a stand on any issue at any time, regardless of how fraught with controversy it might be. You have asked me how I feel about whiskey. All right, here is how I feel about whiskey.
If when you say ‘whiskey’ you mean the devil’s brew, the poison scourge, the bloody monster, that defiles innocence, dethrones reason, destroys the home, creates misery and poverty, yea, literally takes the bread from the mouths of little children; if you mean the evil drink that topples the Christian man and woman from the pinnacle of righteous, gracious living into the bottomless pit of degradation and despair and shame and helplessness and hopelessness, then certainly I am against it.
But if when you say ‘whiskey’ you mean the oil of conversation, the philosophic wine, the ale that is consumed when good fellows get together, that puts a song in their hearts and laughter on their lips, and the warm glow of contentment in their eyes; if you mean Christmas cheer; if you mean the stimulating drink that puts the spring in the old gentleman’s step on a frosty, crispy morning; if you mean the drink which enables a man to magnify his joy, and his happiness, and to forget, if only for a little while, life’s great tragedies, and heartaches, and sorrows; if you mean that drink, the sale of which pours into our treasuries untold millions of dollars, which are used to provide tender care for our little crippled children, our blind, our deaf, our dumb, our pitiful aged and infirm, to build highways and hospitals and schools, then certainly I am for it.
This is my stand. I will not retreat from it. I will not compromise.”
Noah S. “Soggy” Sweat, Jr.
Explanation: Are you willing to wait to see the largest and oldest known storm system in the Solar System? In the featured video, Jupiter’s Great Red Spot finally makes its appearance 2 minutes and 12 seconds into the 5-minute video. Before it arrives, you may find it pleasing to enjoy the continually changing view of the seemingly serene clouds of Jupiter, possibly with your lights low and sound up. The 41 frames that compose the video were captured in June as the robotic Juno spacecraft was making a close pass over our Solar System‘s largest planet. The time-lapse sequence actually occurred over four hours. Since arriving at Jupiter in 2016, Juno‘s numerous discoveries have included unexpectedly deep atmospheric jet streams, the most powerful auroras ever recorded, and water-bearing clouds bunched near Jupiter’s equator.
