FOOD FOR THOUGHT…Sadder words couldn’t be written


From: Hank Ashmore
The Deplorable Infidel

 

It appears everything in Washington is crooked and on the take. Not just Congress but the FBI, the CIA, the Justice Department, the Pentagon, the Generals, literally everyone in Washington including those in the Obama administration. Add to all this Silicon Valley and the social media, cable news, a biased media, and foreign intervention. These groups amalgamated to become the Deep State.

President Trump didn’t have a chance. He walked into this mess four years ago and tried to clean the swamp. But the swamp monster ate him alive piece by piece starting on day one. Unfortunately, his actions over the past few weeks in disputing the election had a small roll for the events at the Capitol. All the good he did over the past four years was wiped away. He is a marked man for the rest of his life. So where does he go now? Where can he live? What is the impact on his family? As one top general said, he’s a great leader without a country.

The changes that are coming will have time to affect senior citizens and will impact their children and grandchildren. The coronavirus impact on our country is mild compared to what is ahead.

Now you understand why there was never any action against the Clinton’s or Obama. How they destroyed emails and evidence and phones and servers, how they spied and wiretapped, how they lied to the FISA Court, had conversations on the tarmac, sent emails to cover their asses after key meetings, how Comey and Brennan and Clapper never were brought to any justice, how the FBI and CIA lied, how the Steele Dossier was passed along, how phones got factory reset, how leak after leak to an accomplice media went unchecked, why George Soros is always in the shadows, why they screamed Russia and pushed a sham impeachment, why no one ever goes to jail, why no one is ever charged, why nothing ever happens.

Why there was no wrongdoing in the FISA warrants, why the Durham report was delayed. Why Hunter will walk Scott free. (Diaper wearing Joe will give his whole family pardons.) Why the FBI sat on the laptop. Why Biden’s connection to China was overlooked and then they unleashed the perfect weapon, a virus that could be weaponized politically to bring down the greatest ever economy and usher in unverifiable mail-in voting.

Why the media is 24/7 propaganda and lies, why up is down and down is up, right is wrong and wrong is right. Why social media silences the First Amendment and speaks over the President of the United States.

This has been the plan by the Deep State along. They didn’t expect Trump to win in 2016. He messed up their plans. Delayed it a little. They weren’t about to let it happen again. COVID-19 was weaponized. Governors helped shut down their states, the media helped shame and kill the economy, and the super lucky unverifiable mail-in ballots were just the trick to make sure the career politician, allegedly with the hands in Chinese payrolls, that couldn’t finish a sentence or collect a word, miraculously became the most popular vote recipient of all time.

You have just witnessed a coup, the overthrow of the United States election system, the end of our constitutional republic, and the decline of capitalism onto a slide toward socialism. What will happen next?

Expect the borders to open up. Increased immigration. Expect agencies like CBP and INS and Homeland Security to be muzzled or even deleted. Law enforcement will see continued defunding. The electoral college be gone. History erased. Two Supreme Court Justices might be removed. The Supreme Court will be packed. Your 2nd Amendment will be attacked. If you have a manufacturing job or oil industry job, get ready. If you run a business, brace for impact. Maybe you’ll be on the hook for slavery reparations, or have your suburbs turned into Section 8 housing. Your taxes are going to go up, and businesses will pay more. I could go on and on. There is no real recovery from this. The presidential  elections from here  on will be decided by New York, Illinois, and California. The Republic will be dead. Mob rule and appeasement will run rampant. The candidate who offers the most from the Treasury will get the most votes. But the votes won’t matter, just the ones received and counted. That precedent has been set. Benjamin Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out: “Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?” Franklin responded: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Ladies and gentlemen, you will now lose your Republic. You turned from God. You turned from family. You turned from country. You embraced degeneracy culture. You celebrated and looked to fools. You worshiped yourselves selfishly as you took for granted what man died to give you. You disregarded history and all it teaches. On your watch, America just died a little. It’s likely she’ll never be the same again. Some of you have no idea what you’ve done. Sadly, some of you do.

“Some of the most intellectual quotes and best poems ever written were penned by Anonymous.”

Why is Elvis Presley called “The King of Rock and Roll?”

1)  No other performer has ever moved so naturally between the genres of Rockabilly, Country, Gospel, and R&B (and been recognized as an icon in each), essentially synthesizing these into a new form: Rock ‘n’ Roll.

2)  The looks, the hair, the sneer, the moves.

3)  Who else?

4)  Mr. Billboard! Most charted hits, Most Top 40 Hits, Most Platinum Hits, Most Gold Hits, Most Two-Sided Hits of all-time.

5)  No one before or since could pull off wearing pink and black with such panache.

And because all these people said so:

1)      “Before Elvis, there was nothing.” “Nothing really affected me until I heard Elvis. If there hadn’t been an Elvis, there wouldn’t have been the Beatles.” (John Lennon)

2)      “A lot of people have accused Elvis of stealing the black man’s music, when in fact, almost every black solo entertainer copied his stage mannerisms from Elvis.” (Jackie Wilson)

3)      “Elvis is the greatest cultural force in the twentieth century. He introduced the beat to everything, music, language, clothes, it’s a whole new social revolution – the 60’s comes from it.” (Leonard Bernstein)

4)      “When I first heard Elvis’ voice, I just knew that I wasn’t going to work for anybody; and noboby was going to be my boss… Hearing him for the first time was like busting out of jail.” (Bob Dylan)

5)      “There have been a lotta tough guys. There have been pretenders. And there have been contenders. But there is only one king.” (Bruce Springsteen)

6)      “I don’t think there is a musician today that hasn’t been affected by Elvis’ music. His definitive years – 1954-57 – can only be described as rock’s cornerstone. He was the original cool.” (Brian Setzer)

7)      “He’s just the greatest entertainer that ever lived. And I think it’s because he had such presence. When Elvis walked into a room, Elvis Presley was in the f***ing room. I don’t give a f*** who was in the room with him, Bogart, Marilyn Monroe.” (Eddie Murphy)

******

When Elvis Presley hit the road in June 1977, he was an absolute mess. He was only 42, but years of prescription drug abuse and horrifying dietary habits had left him bloated, depressed and near death. He had an enlarged heart, an enlarged intestine and hypertension.

He was barely sleeping and should have probably been in the hospital, but he was still a huge draw on the concert circuit and the money was too good to turn down. It had been over a year since Elvis last released a studio album, and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, was determined to get more product into the stores. Despite Elvis’ horrid shape, Parker arranged for a camera crew to film the June 19th show in Omaha for a planned TV special and live album.

It eventually did air on CBS two months after Elvis died, but has yet to resurface in any official capacity. Of course, this isn’t the image of Elvis that his estate wants the fans to remember. Two days later ( 21 June), the cameras were still rolling when the tour hit Rapid City, South Dakota. It was another weak and sad night until Elvis sat down at the piano near the end of the show to deliver what was a spellbinding rendition of “Unchained Melody.” As guitarist Charlie Hodge held a microphone, Elvis dug deep and poured his heart into the song. His body was falling apart, but his voice remained almost as powerful as ever.

Without any doubt, it’s the last great moment of his career. The tour limped along through five more shows, wrapping up June 26th at the Market Square Arena in Indianapolis, Indiana. He died less than two months later. Following is that great performance. Beautiful and sad at the same time.

 

“Elvis would have turned 86 years old this year. In my opinion, Elvis is still  “The King of Rock and Roll.” Heaven needed a Choir Leader and Elvis accepted the position.”

The Twin Editor:  Can you make decisions on similar or not,  LL ?

I Can Tell The  Difference Cat:  I sure can.  The first example is why you should question anything on the internet, and especially anything in the news media.  The news media is easy to understand—just take what they say and reverse it.

Start practicing now—reverse everything she said.

It isn’t a crisis, that’s why the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been ordered to help.  They help with disasters like hurricanes, and 9-11.

TTE:  Can you comment on the Pigleosi Swamp Sow, ICTTDC ?

I couldn’t make a personal comment, that would be unethical and unprofessional, but over 1 percent ( about 3,310 ) of our loyal readers said they wanted Karma to pay a visit to Nancy, her husband, children, grand children, pets, all kin, friends, pets, her staff in the HOR,  her ice cream supplier, her liquor supplier, and anyone who voted for her.

Let’s get a new case before the current court.  They might hear what we are saying.

Gilkey Covered Bridge

WGN – 37-22-04 Gilkey Covered Bridge – Built in 1939 in Linn County by Linn County spanning Thomas Creek on Goar Rd., single span, 120 feet long, Howe trusses

There is some confusion about the Gilkey Bridge’s construction date. A plaque on the structure indicates 1939, but the Linn County engineer’s office has stated that a 1936 Albany Democrat-Herald article noted it was constructed that year.

Astronomy Picture of the Day

The Leo Trio
Image Credit & Copyright: Francis Bozon

Explanation: This popular group leaps into the early evening sky around the March equinox and the northern hemisphere spring. Famous as the Leo Triplet, the three magnificent galaxies found in the prominent constellation Leo gather here in one astronomical field of view. Crowd pleasers when imaged with even modest telescopes, they can be introduced individually as NGC 3628 (right), M66 (upper left), and M65 (bottom). All three are large spiral galaxies but tend to look dissimilar, because their galactic disks are tilted at different angles to our line of sight. NGC 3628, also known as the Hamburger Galaxy, is temptingly seen edge-on, with obscuring dust lanes cutting across its puffy galactic plane. The disks of M66 and M65 are both inclined enough to show off their spiral structure. Gravitational interactions between galaxies in the group have left telltale signs, including the tidal tails and warped, inflated disk of NGC 3628 and the drawn out spiral arms of M66. This gorgeous view of the region spans over 1 degree (two full moons) on the sky in a frame that covers over half a million light-years at the trio’s estimated distance of 30 million light-years. Of course the spiky foreground stars lie well within our own Milky Way.
