From The Guardian.

“A Christmas Carol has been described as the most perfect of Dickens’s works and as a quintessential heart-warming story, and it is certainly the most popular. It’s a ghost story with a moral, a message of hope, good cheer and Christian redemption, and an assertion of the value of the Christmas festival when families get together for feasting, and quarrels are made up.

At the end of the tale, a sick child who seemed destined to die is cured, and a bad man turns over a new leaf and becomes generous and affectionate. Good triumphs over evil, good-heartedness and good cheer over poverty and misery. Yet two terrifying children who have been introduced into the story are left at the end, their fates unresolved, to haunt us.”

Most of us have some basic, instinctive concept of good and evil.

I have long believed that evil is something that hurts somebody.

Even good people do evil deeds. Every single one of us.

So why did Google remove it from their code of conduct preface?

Old Code of Conduct.

““Don’t be evil.” Googlers generally apply those words to how we serve our users. But “Don’t be evil” is much more than that. Yes, it’s about providing our users unbiased access to information, focusing on their needs and giving them the best products and services that we can. But it’s also about doing the right thing more generally – following the law, acting honorably, and treating co-workers with courtesy and respect.

The Google Code of Conduct is one of the ways we put “Don’t be evil” into practice. It’s built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work at Google will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct. We set the bar that high for practical as well as aspirational reasons: Our commitment to the highest standards helps us hire great people, build great products, and attract loyal users. Trust and mutual respect among employees and users are the foundation of our success, and they are something we need to earn every day.”

New Code of Conduct.

“The Google Code of Conduct is one of the ways we put Google’s values into practice. It’s built around the recognition that everything we do in connection with our work at Google will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of ethical business conduct. We set the bar that high for practical as well as aspirational reasons: Our commitment to the highest standards helps us hire great people, build great products, and attract loyal users. Respect for our users, for the opportunity, and for each other are foundational to our success, and are something we need to support every day.

So please do read the Code and Google’s values, and follow both in spirit and letter, always bearing in mind that each of us has a personal responsibility to incorporate, and to encourage other Googlers to incorporate, the principles of the Code and values into our work. And if you have a question or ever think that one of your fellow Googlers or the company as a whole may be falling short of our commitment, don’t be silent. We want – and need – to hear from you.”

https://web.archive.org/web/20180504211806/https://abc.xyz/investor/other/google-code-of-conduct.html

Now we have “Google’s values.”

So much for good over evil.

“All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten” by Robert Fulghum

“These are the things I learned (in Kindergarten):

1. Share everything.
2. Play fair.
3. Don’t hit people.
4. Put thngs back where you found them.
5. CLEAN UP YOUR OWN MESS.
6. Don’t take things that aren’t yours.
7. Say you’re SORRY when you HURT somebody.”

“Apathy is the glove in which evil slips its hand.” (Anonymous)

“The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.”…Albert Einstein

    ………..”Oh lamb of God, just as I am I come.” This comes from one of my favorite gospel hymns “Just as I am” which was used all during the tenure of Billy Graham. I attended the Indianapolis Crusade many years ago. I still have not forgotten it or Billy Graham. To this day I remain in acceptance of Rev, Graham’s teaching. What he said to us went to my mind, my heart, and my very soul.
    When our hearts, minds, and souls no longer accept the word of God, we have gone out on a limb over the abyss without a bottom.

    “Never mind Facebook, Google is the all-seeing ‘big brother’ you should know about”

    “Google is a ‘Big Brother’ with capabilities beyond George Orwell’s wildest nightmares. These capabilities are all the more chilling after Google’s parent company, Alphabet Inc., cut its famous “don’t be evil” line from its code of conduct in 2015.”

    ……………it is fast becoming clear. There will never be a border wall. So lets throw the border doors OPEN WIDE……and let EVERYBODY in……. but lets ship them directly to the SANCTUARY CITIES, and let the so called leaders of the cities SHOW THE WORLD JUST HOW DAMN STUPID THEY ARE. It is clear the liberal judges are running America. So lets drop it all into their laps. When their idiotic reasoning causes thousands of murders, and other crimes, rampant diseases, and serious breakdown of what little morality is left, then we can ask the liberal judges to FIX THE PROBLEM that they will have created. It is also clear that the US Supreme Court is NOW POLITICISED. Our last line of legal defense is fading fast. It will then be up to the 4th branch of government to save the country………otherwise our country is probably now TERMINAL.

  12. New Q: Clock is Ticking (One Party Will Not Survive)

  13. A THOUGHT………..
    ………this is in regard to those folks who are said to be the super rich. In considering the possible, or probable ways they might have accomplished their status several notions come to mind. One is that they accomplished this through hard, and effective work…….which is all well and good! But then we think perhaps some of the rich folks might have used trickery, and maligned business practices to accrue stature and wealth. Then it is conceivable that some folks end up with large sums of money because they appease the have nots, with occasional FREE baubles and toys to play with, which soon causes them to want more of the FREE baubles and toys..……so the entrepreneur provides them with more, and more because he knows that this endears those folks to him and at the same time he gives them lots of toys he also operates other businesses where he charges them MORE ,and MORE for the products they purchase. He either manufactures, or buys the products at a much lower figure, then marks each product up substantially, sometimes over 1000%. Then along comes the poorer person who wants one of the more expensive toys. So he goes into huge debt to buy one. He is then obligated to pay for the item which he financed at the rich person’s financial lending institution. For the next 6 years, or 30 years the poor guy is obligated to help make the rich guy RICHER. It doesn’t end there. The richer the rich guy becomes the richer he wants to be…….so he once again throws out a few more FREE baubles, and toys, and thousands of folks grab them like they are going out of style. So the cycle begins again, more toys, more, and more debt……..soon the debt becomes unmanageable, and the person feels as thought his employer needs to pay him more so he can manage his debt. The employer agrees to pay him more, then the first thing the debtor does is goes out and creates even greater debt. Then in a few years he again demands more money from his employer. All the while his employer gets richer and richer. There was once a man who through the careful observance of the behavior of humankind, said ” THERE IS A SUCKER BORN EVERY MINUTE”. His name was P.T. Barnum. who himself was a well heeled part owner of a circus. He helped provide lots of enjoyment for folks a few times each year, with bizarre clowns, trapeze artists, and animals doing acts. Once again we see human WANT driving the enrichment of an entrepreneur. There is no escaping the fact that there are rich folks who were made that way by PO FOKES! Is this REALITY, is it NECESSITY, or is it out and out FRAUD?

    Another California disaster waiting to happen….
    Where are the graffiti art taggers?

    Officials unveiled signs named “President Barack H. Obama Highway” in a portion of the Los Angeles-area freeway, State Route 134, on Thursday, the Associated Press reported.

    Democratic state Sen. Anthony Portantino introduced the resolution, which was filed in September 2017, to designate a portion of the freeway to be renamed. It spans between State Route 2 and Interstate 210, The Pasadena Star-News reported.

    “In recognition of President Barack Hussein Obama’s more than two decades of dedicated public service to the citizens of the United States and the State of California, it is fitting to designate a portion of State Route 134 in his honor,” the resolution read in part.

    So sorry for your loss. Yes, it’s hard. I too had a loss last September. I lost my wife to cancer. We had been married for 59 years. I’m still trying to get over it. Christmas makes it especially tough. Thank GOD I have a five year old grandson, who gives me a lot of comfort and company.
    Got to keep going. Merry Christmas everyone.

  24. Merry Christmas to all of you, and for those of you who have had to endure losses, prayers of comfort to you. May the new year bring peace to each and everyone here.

  25. hapnHal……..
    ……….I know exactly what losing a wife is like……happened to me in 1981, and while the initial pain has subsided, I have never forgotten her, One would think that we all go through this at some point in our lives, and we should get over it. Unfortunately it doesn’t seem to work that way…….every loss is very painful, even the loss of a beloved pet. I think maybe our creator had something in mind when he programmed grief into us…..I haven’t yet figured it out. Bonding is something which involves the heart, the mind, and the very soul. People who have been together for many decades are usually so attached. Perhaps this is at least in part why each, and every loss is what it is. EXTREMELY PAINFUL !!!! Men are men, but there comes a time when a man learns about crying.

  26. hapnHal……..
    …………your right about the kiddies. When the great great grandchildren come to visit it brings a lot of really special joy to me. I don’t need gifts. Just a few minutes of the children gives me far more pleasure than any gift ever will. This seems to make me feel a lot better, and I suspect the same works for you too.

  27. hapnHal……..
    ………it would seem like there would be some farm ground available somewhere up your way. You could grow your own strawberries, and sell some of them to help defray costs. Given the California taxation level it is hard to believe there is still any businesses remaining in the state. It would probably require a financial genius to operate a business in California.

    Made this post today (F/R)
    SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — California’s population grew by 215,000 people but is still shy of 40 million, the state announced Friday.

    The population of the most populous state hit 39.8 million as of July 1, 2018, according to numbers from the Department of Finance that began in July 2017. California’s population far exceeds that of any other state; Texas ranks second with nearly 29 million people, followed by Florida and New York.

    California’s growth was driven by about 200,000 more births than deaths and a net migration of 21,000, meaning more people came to the state than left. Inland counties such as Amador and Placer, at the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountain range, and Merced in the Central Valley, saw the highest growth rates.

    Sonoma and Napa counties in wine country saw their populations decline by the highest rate in the state, and rural areas in inland and Northern California also lost people.

    Los Angeles County remains the state’s most populous county at nearly 10.3 million people, triple that of the next closest California county, San Diego, and larger than most states. Riverside County grew by 27,000 people, the largest numeric change.

    The population estimates come as the state and nation prepare for a new census count in 2020. California has added 2.6 million people since the 2010 census. The decennial count determines how many seats each state gets in Congress and how much federal money it gets for various services.

    Since 2010, California has gained a net 1.3 million foreign immigrants

    “Going from bad to worse…daily.”

    I belong to a FB Group named, ‘My Job Depends Upon Ag’ and the California Contingency of the group is REALLY vocal about how CA is screwing them over and putting so many of them OUT of business.

    It’s doubly tragic because HOW can you leave land that’s been in your family since the 1800’s? No one wants to buy it due to the ridiculous regulations, and it’s not fit for anything else – also due to CA regulations. AND they’re cutting off WATER to these farms to save some worm or flea or vermin!

    How awful for those family farms. We just have 160 acres, and I can’t imagine having to sell ONE acre of it or ever leave it!

    CA legislators must think food just shows up by magic! *SPIT*

  30. hapnHal……….
    ………how many of the net gain in the state population are evolved from either illegal immigrants, or people moving into the state. Some of the highest quality produce is grown in California. Sadly a few NOSE PICKING DO GOODERS are allowed to control the lives and livelihood of other folks. I seem to remember a few years back there was big water starvation thing against the farmers in one of the most productive valleys in California….which as I remember had to do with a tiny fish.

  31. Ginger………
    ……….this has been going on for quite awhile. I believe that there will eventually be a merger between at least ONE of the Bush family and a number of very well heeled LIBERALJERKS in a powerful attempt to remove TRUMP from office. What the TWISTED MORONS don’t realise is that he is way ahead of them and in all probability will have laid some traps for them to fall into which will be KILLER TRAPS. What I mean by KILLER TRAPS is a trap which will bring the BS of the trapped a$$hole to a PERMANENT END. Please pardon my language, but this is simply how I view it, and subsequently SAY IT. I am often RUDE, CRUDE, and sometimes even LEWD in my language.

  32. hapnHal……..
    …………do you have any information relating to the possible rebuild of the PELOSI fish cannery which was nearly totally destroyed by a Tsunami at American Samoa several years ago.The Pelosi’s once owned a fish processing and canning plant in SanDiego. It generated a lot of foul odor which at night would sometimes fill the entire length of SanDiego Bay clear out past Point Loma. The cannery was close to North Island Naval Air station. A lot of the people stationed there used to complain about the stench which the cannery generated.

  33. AND……….
    ……….in the 1950s US Navy ships returning from deployment in Korea often tied up to anchor buoys in SanDiego bay. Sometimes there would be as many as 10 Auxiliary Cargo ships tied up in the bay at one time. Crewman were taken to a FLEET landing from where they began an evening ashore. Sometimes some of the crewmen returned to fleet landing totally stoned, and were loaded like logs in a LCVP taken to their respective ships in the bay, and hoisted aboard in a cargo net. SUCH IS INEBRIATION!

  34. MOST…….
    ……….of the COs of the tied up cargo ships knew by experience there would be a few totally stoned, and snoring logs to take aboard in the wee hours of the early AM…..so they ordered a yard and stay rigged with a cargo net to be readied in the event it was needed later to hoist inebriated crewmen aboard who were unable to exit the LCVP, and climb the suspended gangway. EH CUMPARI !

  35. oldsailor86… I am so fed up with the globalist a-holes. When they decide to leave working under president Trump I wish they would just shut up and go! I do like how they are coming out of the closet and showing us their true colors so we can know our enemies. I am reading General Mathis is/was planning on running against president Trump. (eyes rolling)

  36. Have a Merry Christmas everyone. I am hoping that Santa Clause leaves me one or both of the winning tickets in the lotteries in my stocking!

    Paul Pelosi
    Found this………….

    Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi’s home district includes San Francisco.

    Star-Kist Tuna’s headquarters are in San Francisco, Pelosi’s home district.

    Star-Kist is owned by Del Monte Foods and is a major contributor to Pelosi.

    Star-Kist is the major employer in American Samoa employing 75% of the Samoan workforce.

    Paul Pelosi, Nancy’s husband, owns $17 million dollars of Star-Kist stock.

    In January, 2007 when the minimum wage was increased from $5.15 to $7.25, Pelosi had American Samoa exempted from the increase so Del Monte would not have to pay the higher wage. This would make Del Monte products less expensive than their competition’s.

    Last week when the huge bailout bill was passed, Pelosi added an earmark to the final bill adding $33 million dollars for an ‘economic development credit in American Samoa’.

    Pelosi has called the Bush Administration ‘corrupt’.

    She should know.

  38. What the demo-RATS do not want you to know and will not tell the Californians is that billions in aid for the victims of the wild fires and hurricanes was in the bill funding the wall. Every demon-RAT VOTED ‘NO’ on this recovery aid because they hate president Trump. I am sick of these Godless people!

  39. There is a video going around where well dressed illegals are being put on chartered busses at El Paso, TX and taken to a catholic church and the motels are filled with them! This action is reported to be paid for by George Soros and Hillary Clinton and this has been going on for weeks. The females and families are separated from the males and put on separate busses. The police are standing around while the people are supervising. It is well run by the church members, which looks like they are the elder members of the church. Anthony, that was video taping it got license plate numbers. I hope that he has sent it to I.C.E … BTW.. the majority of them are young males!

  40. Merry Christmas to all, and a happy and prosperous New Year, from one who never posts, due to work taking up about 97.5% of my waking hours. In the cities, people feel apprehensive about saying “Merry Christmas”. But out here in the country, EVERYONE says it, which is fine by me. Leaving the city 2 years ago was the best thing I ever did. The other best thing was getting rid of Cox Communications (middle name Ucker).

    All signs here point to 2019 being a pretty good year. At the very least, if the SHTF, it’s a lot better to be where I am now than to still be stuck in a city. 🙂

  41. Merry Christmas AFB, et al.

    Thanks for making the post to oldsailor. I’m worried. Iv’e been looking for an oldsailor post since his last one he made on 24 December. Could you send him an email. Thx

  52. hapnHal, I’m waiting for a response from oldsailor…..I’m worried, too.

  53. OT.

    There was a magnitude 6.9 quake in the vicinity of Mindanao, Philippines at 10:39 PM, EST. The depth was 59 km (anything less than 80 km is considered ‘shallow focus’ and they’re the ones that do the damage).

    Nothing regarding a tsunami watch or warning yet, but waves could be generated for the Philippines/Indonesia region; this was a very strong quake.

    The Earth is very active lately…..

  54. I sent an email this AM.

  55. Thanks, CW. His Christmas Eve post struck me as downright eerie, as does his not posting at all since then.

  56. HI ALL……..
    ……….computer died ! Docter did transplant surgery on it and it now has a brand new HEART. The main part of it overheated which took it’s life. Not cheap either!!!
    Just got it all plugged in and reconnected. Tough being without a voice. As for my post on the 24th I can only say that I have been fighting some depressed moments because of deteriorating health issues………but after all is said and done they remain. What the WTH you have to croak from something!!!!! What else is new!! I guess we all have bad moments from time to time. When I look around me all I see, and hear anymore is either sick twisted BS, total fantasy, or the idiotic behavior of a fast growing segment of our alleged society. It seems like thousands of Americans have finally reached mental necrosis. If the cycle isn’t soon redirected America will eventually become a third world country. Mzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Merkel recently stated there can be no turning back…….from the New World Order. These words tell you where she is. She is just one person on earth among millions of LIBERAL MORONS, who are taking our country in the same direction. Sadly we now live in a castrated society, and the thought of this errant direction being ever turned around is probably a fantasy.
    ……………After the 1st of the year I fully expect the liberal morons to pursue a barrage of lawsuits against President Trump. All will end up in the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals………soon thereafter the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals will take over the control of America from the POTUS. So far they have been successful in tying the Presiden’ ts hands in several prior cases. Nor will these issues be treated as Constitutional issues by the SCOTUS either The SCOTUS has become politicised. Only THE 4TH BRANCH OF GOVERNMENT REMAINS VIABLE. The fourth branch of government is WE THE PEOPLE. Sadly EVERYBODY is TOO BUSY, doing drugs, picking their noses, or watching PORN to even care about the direction our country is sliding. People will wake up AFTER THE FACT……….when it is already too late.

  57. Glad to see you’re OK, Oldsailor, and that your earlier post did not come to pass.

    Keep faith in God, who is more powerful than any and all opponents in Washington D.C. or anywhere else.

    Have a great New Year. No telling when I’ll be able to post again, as work has been rolling in like gangbusters. But it pays the bills . . . 🙂

  58. SueK……..
    ………..It is painfully clear that there are a lot of so called scientists who believe they can control the climate of earth by regulating the man made contaminants entering the atmosphere. This notion is only a small part of what is really going on……..Most of the truth lies in global volcanic activity. The non stop eruption of the Hawaii volcano puts huge amounts of many contaminants into the atmosphere. This is compounded by undersea volcanic activity which warms up sea water which subsequently evaporates at a higher rate. Moisture going into the atmosphere eventually condenses and falls on earth as rain or snow………and brings with it some of the various gaseous contaminants. What goes up will eventually come back down. When massive amounts of warm moisture saturated air reaches the cooler low pressure in the upper atmosphere……voila, instant thunderstorm, and volumnous rain. Maybe some day our SCIENTIFIC COMMUNITY will develop a dialog with mother nature, and will be able to convince her to back off on her volcano eruptions. but at the same time mankind needs to take some of the flying HEATERS of the upper atmosphere out of service. Jet aircraft contrails are really frozen moisture crystals. Ice crystals are heavier than air and eventually fall back to earth as rain. It is now a well known fact that at any given moment in time there are over 40,000 jet aircraft flying at 30,000+ feet altitude. This is on a 24 hour basis. Yes the upper atmosphere can become saturated with moisture if enough is being precipitated out of the jet fuel by combustion within the 24 hour period. A single jet exhaust temperature will range into 1000 degree+ on a CONTINUOUS BASIS, and 40,000 such precipitators flying at the same time has to effect the upper atmosphere globally…….since the number of flying aircraft is also on a global basis.
    I ain’t a scientist……but I know the various stages of latent heat; the latent heat of evaporation, the latent heat of condensation, the latent heat of fusion, combustion etc……..it goes on and on! Most of the last paragraph is something which marine engineers learn about early in their courses. This is in parallel with the steam cycle of ship board steam propulsion. There are fewer and fewer steamships plying the oceans these days. Some are now turbo electric, some are geared diesel, some are diesel electric and a few are geared gas turbine. To some extent steamships are nearly a thing of the past.

    ……….thanks for the concern. The GOLDEN YEARS IS WHEN YOUR GP HAS ALL OF YOUR GOLD !!!!!!

  60. Whew!!!!!!

    GW, you almost got a ‘wellness check’ from Fort Wayne’s finest in blue :).

    Glad you and the computer are OK!

  61. SueK………
    ………..my computer underwent heart transplant surgery. It now has a brand new heart.

    Good to hear from you.
    Now I can eat my bowl of strawberries.

  63. hapnHal………
    yep…..so much for daily ritual.

  64. CW, everything is fine in Oklahoma. I enjoyed Christmas, as much as possible,. My wife went into the hospital for a couple of days, dehydrated. Then she was on a bland diet … still. My birthday was a flop with her being sick.

    Sorry for whining but I got it off my chest / lol May everyone have a happy and blessed New Year.

    God Bless!

  65. No champagne for me this New Year’s Eve. Something awful always happens as a result. Usually it involves being injured by the cork, no matter how careful I am to aim the beastly thing AWAY from me when opening. Got clocked in the eye last time, when the cork ricocheted off the wall. Was asked for days afterward if I’d had a rough date. 😀

    This time, I will make do with ordinary wine. Safer that way. 🙂

    AND NOW THIS…..

    The cost of the Wall is not the real issue.
    Democrats are determined to prevent Trump building the wall because it will be his everlasting LEGACY.. bigger than any library, school, museum, or airport.

  67. hapnHal, I think you’re right on target, here. The Dems want NO Trump legacy, but I have an idea:

    1. Get the Army Corps (that’s ‘corpse’ to Ovomit) of Engineers to build the wall; they’re already on the payroll.

    2. Use Brian Kolfage’s GoFundMe donations (now up to $18M) to buy the materials needed.

    3. Get the wall built.

    4. Have an architect and/or electronics expert fashion a gigantic neon ‘TRUMP’ sign for the top of the wall; have it alternate the colors red, white and blue. Keep it on 24/7/365. This will compliment Mr. Trump’s other holdings: His plane, Trump Tower, etc. Put his name on it for all to see,

    5. Watch the Dems implode. Strawberries for everyone!

  68. 2. Use Brian Kolfage’s GoFundMe donations (now up to $18M) to buy the materials needed.

    Did you know someone started a dig a tunnel(buy shovels) fund @ gofundme for illegals to get underneath the wall if built and ..wait for it—IT’S ALREADY AT $4900 DOLLARS???!!!??? 🙂 I’m still laughing.

  69. SueK
    Great Idea “A Trump Wall Sign” ! Love it!

  70. AND NOW……..
    ………….insane liberal Dems are preparing over 100 legal actions against President Trump. All will be filed simultaneously………..will cost taxpayers millions to defend against. The underlying aim involved is…….……HARRASSMENT

  71. Check this out @ 8:00 of the video! Death penalty for Hilliary ,and the usurper? They certainly qualify!

  72. Yes, JayJay, I’ve read about some groups ‘countering’ Brian Kolfage’s fundraiser to get them in to America.

    What’ll you bet they’re Dems???

    Happy New Year.

  73. HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY !!!

  74. Happy New Year!
    Remember, 1 person can & often makes a difference.
    Just reading about Winston Churchill again.
    May 1940, he becomes Prime Minister.
    1 man, Churchill probably made THE difference in WWII.
    God bless.

  75. AND NOW………..
    ………..a “Pocahontas” presidential exploratory committee has been formed. I have a gut feeling that they will have to file their findings in the LOW INTELLIGENCE column. Anybody who would vote for a NITWIT like her would probably themselves be of LOW INTELLIGENCE !!

  76. CW…….
    ……….Sir Winston Churchill was a welcome relief to the stupidity of Neville Chamberlain !!

  77. CW……
    …………had Churchill not taken the reins of Britain when he did, Britain probably would have been forced to surrender to the Nazis……just as did France.

  78. CW…….
    ………..since Neville Chamberlain tried to APPEASE HITLER, it is more than probable that Chamberlain would have surrendered the entire UK to the Nazis. Chamberlain had NO BACKBONE he followed the path of least resistance; ie. ……….cowardice. !!!

  79. I remind myself of the importance of 1 person’s actions.
    I searched on “bartle bull obama” recently.
    Was pleased at the results.

  80. CW……….
    and there was another Neville Chamberlain so to speak…….whose name was Charles DeGaulle. he handed France to the Nazis without a shot being fired. He knew that France did not have the capability to even defend itself. This was largely the results of the policies of both Ge Gaulle, and prior leaders.

  81. AND YET,………
    ………when Paris was finally liberated by the Allies, DeGaulle was permitted by Eisenhower to march triumphantly into Paris at the LEAD of the forces.

  82. CW…….
    …………..one thing is certain…….Sir Winston Churchill was NOT AFRAID of DER NAZI SUPERMEN ………which DER FUEHRER discovered the hard, and expensive way.ie; (Battle of Britain).

  83. AND………
    …………there has been a lot of rumors that Churchill was related to Roosevelt via marriage, and family members. I have never seen any proof of that. Roosevelt and Churchill, had a close friendship which was founded largely as a result of the war in Europe. They worked well together Sadly Joseph Stalin, who was also an ally was not quite the friend he pretended to be. !

  84. The Anti-American Dream

  85. HUNDREDS………
    …………of lawsuits in Federal Court to be filed on January 2nd.by nearly as many LIBERAL DEMOCRAT politicians. This amounts to political harassment which will interfere with Trump’s ability to administer his legally elected office. He has the latitude of law to deal with this sort of BS. These legal actions will more than likely be thrown out the courtroom door………..unless the Judge of the particular court happens to be a DEMOCRAT. Without a doubt the lawsuits will accuse President TRUMP of a wrong doing of some sort.. These lawsuits have materialised of the irrational hysteria of the TWISTED POLITICIANS ,and the alleged MEDIA.. The lawsuit BS will explode in the faces of the twisted liberals.

  86. Bob Strauss………..
    …………..thanks for posting the “ANTI AMERICAN DREAM”. Every word that he used I second with great zeal. What was said is everything which I have been saying for a very long time. Sadly every word will be IGNORED, by many potential readers, because it doesn’t INTEREST THEM. It doesn’t register with the F— YOU, OR F— YO MAMA intelligence level people who are now so prevalent among us. If it was PORN, or instructions for drug use it would be read, and re read thousands of times each day.

  87. Am praying those lawsuits will explode in their faces and their stupid Congressional agenda of endless obstruction will also fall flat.

    Anyone interested in following an American patriot that has some good organizational ideas going, look for Jason Woolsey (Louisianan/Texan) on facebook and youtube. https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=jason+woolsey He is a blue collar guy in the vein of Brian Kolfage and the gofundthewall movement (up to over 18 mil. now). We’ll see if we get the wall/fence/gate, etc. in 2019.

    New Year’s blessings to everyone here on CW! Glad your computer is up and running, OS86, and that you are hopefully feeling better.

  88. Happy New Year everyone!

    I think it’d make us all very happy to see a ton of indictments in 2019 :).

  89. kaks………
    ………..unfortunately pulmonary fibrosis doesn’t get better. This compounded by severe neuropathy in both legs, and to an extent in both hands. I live from day to day, and try to enjoy each day as is……..hence my sometimes over posting of thoughts, and information I have come across. My computer provides me with an escape from the reality of my illnesses. I don’t lay down to sleep until 2;00 AM, sometimes 3:00AM. I sleep for a few hours, and then I am forced to return to my GERI CHAIR. Aside from all of this I am able to lose myself in the internet each day, and to an extent I manage to enjoy myself as each hour passes.

  90. AND…….
    in a few minutes it will be 2019.
    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY !!!!!

  91. Well here we go……..
    2019 Predictions The American Conservative

    1. Democrats versus Trump will head to the Supreme Court.
    2. A little-known Democratic presidential candidate will make waves.
    3. Joe Biden will quit politics.
    4. Matt Whitaker will block public release of the Mueller report.
    5. Trump will sign a deal with North Korea’s Kim—and it will fail.

    and
    Happy New Year Everyone

  92. hapnHal……..
    ………..I think you have it pretty much zeroed in……..particularly with respect to item #1. The Dems have already prepared over 100 lawsuits against Trump, and several people in his cabinet. I have found that the lawsuits have the backing of several billionaire Democrats. One of these people is Tom Steyer. Obviously he thinks he can ram his will down the throats of American conservative voters. IT WILL EXPLODE IN HIS FACE!!! I watched him a few months back on television as he raved and ranted. He sounds a lot like a LABOR UNION ENFORCER. as the foam from his depraved oral cavity drips from his pointed little chin.

  93. hapnHal…….
    ……….with respect to Joe Biden, it is probable that the Democratic party will be WELL SERVED when he hangs up the jock. Whenever he gives speeches he seems to constantly get his tongue wrapped around his eye tooth, and can’t see what he is saying. GOD help us if he was ever to become POTUS, and does the same in a critical policy decision.

  94. hapnHal…….
    ………..watch out for the strawberries from South of the border.

  95. oldsailor85+
    Here’s one to think about?
    President Trump needs money for the wall.
    WELL…..
    America’s top 15 largest banks
    In the years since the financial crisis, the nation’s biggest banks have grown substantially. All in all, the top 15 largest banks now hold a combined total of $13.2 trillion in assets.

    For a sense of the vast scale of that wealth, $13.2 trillion is enough to buy every one of the 7.6 billion human beings on Earth a 13-inch MacBook Pro, with a little left over for accessories.

    Of course, every year there are changes in this exclusive club. Larger banks trade places with one another, and smaller banks drop out, replaced by faster-growing rivals.

    This year, you need at least $201.3 billion in assets to join the club, a sum so large that, if converted into $100 bills laid end to end, would reach the moon (with several thousand miles left over to check out the view).

    Here are the 15 largest banks in the U.S. by assets, according to the latest numbers from S&P Global Market Intelligence, a financial industry research firm.

    Rank Bank name Total assets
    1 JPMorgan Chase & Co. $2.53 trillion
    2 Bank of America Corp. $2.28 trillion
    3 Wells Fargo & Co. $1.95 trillion
    4 Citigroup Inc. $1.84 trillion
    5 Goldman Sachs Gp Inc $917 billion
    6 Morgan Stanley $851.86 billion
    7 U.S. Bancorp $462.04 billion
    8 TD Gp US Holdings LLC $380.91 billion
    9 PNC Financial Services Inc .$380.77 billion
    10 Bank of New York Mellon Corp.$371.76 billion
    11 Capital One Financial Corp. $365.69 billion
    12 State Street Corp. $238.42 billion
    13 BB&T Corp. $221.64 billion
    14 SunTrust Banks Inc. $205.96 billion
    15 HSBC USA Inc. $201.30 billion

  96. AND NOW……….
    ……………it is once again clear that there WILL BE, an attempt by the DEMOCRATS to impeach President Trump early into 2019. They will NOT SUCCEED simply because the POTUS has not committed any impeachable crime. The legality of the attempt to impeach will end up being decided by the SCOTUS. The SCOTUS will be forced to apply Constitutional law, and the attempt to impeach will be ordered VACATED by the SCOTUS. Soon thereafter Congress will be convening another Grand jury, and this time there will be a large number of so called Congressmen who will find themselves facing charges of treason in their masked attempt to overthrow a sitting POTUS. With any luck at all every one of them will find themselves in 8’x12′ cells at Leavenworth for very lengthy slammer vacations. (possibly life). It is also clear that DEMOCRATS STILL can’t seem to get it through their heads that the rule of law takes precedence……..NOT MENTAL FANTASIES !!

  97. hapnHal……
    …………..the repeated criminal behavior of the Wells Fargo leadership cost Wells Fargo huge Federal fines, NOT ONCE, but several times. Then the criminal execs were PROMOTED instead of being fired. Wells Fargo recently sold over 50 of their branch banks, including the one which I bank at. It is now called FLAGSTAR BANK. Insofar as banking is concerned it doesn’t vary much from one to the other. With that in mind I decided to give them a shot at my account. So far they have made no mistakes. They are a REGIONAL Michigan bank. They bought the Wells Fargo branch offices.
