The world has gotten strange.

Russia continually accuses Ukraine of lying and Ukraine is always accusing Russia of invading. I think the evidence is Ukraine's side.

Iran finally has pushed The West to the end of the road.

The Prime Minister of Israel is probably a no show at the joint sessions of Congress, because, it might actually lead to his loss in the elections this time.

The Chinese Oligarchs are importing chinese peasants to work in sweat shops while they are housed in a dungeon in New Jersey.

The east coast of the USA is frozen and the west coast is drowning. And weather men are still saying things like "The Hawaiian Express" and a "Nor'easter." That went out over a decade ago when the tropospheric vortexes showed up.

The incredibly good news is that the Middle East assault on Isis is being lead by Jordan. The King is magnificent. I still pinch myself once in a while to realize a King is leading the charge to defend Islam.


I'm taking the night off before Ted Cruz actually starts making sense to me and I am going to watch the Grammies.

Until tomorrow.
Ted Cruz graduated high school from a Christian madrasa. No lie. He started high school at Faith West Academy. That proved to be less tenacious than Cruz preferred, so he transferred to the Second Baptist School of Houston.

This is what his first year university roommate stated about him.

..."I remember very specifically (click here) that he had a book in Spanish and the title was Was Karl Marx a Satanist? And I thought, who is this person?" Mazin says of Ted Cruz. “Even in 1988, he was politically extreme in a way that was surprising to me.”
By Mazin’s account and those of multiple members of Princeton’s class of 1992, the Ted Cruz who arrived as a college freshman in 1988 was nearly identical to the man who arrived in Washington as a freshman Republican senator in 2013: intelligent, confident, fixated on conservative political theory, and deeply polarizing.
“It was my distinct impression that Ted had nothing to learn from anyone else,” said Erik Leitch, who lived in Butler College with Cruz. Leitch said he remembers Cruz as someone who wanted to argue over anything or nothing, just for the exercise of arguing. “The only point of Ted talking to you was to convince you of the rightness of his views."
In addition to Mazin and Leitch, several fellow classmates who asked that their names not be used described the young Cruz with words like “abrasive,” "intense," “strident,” “crank,” and “arrogant." Four independently offered the word “creepy,” with some pointing to Cruz’s habit of donning a paisley bathrobe and walking to the opposite end of their dorm’s hallway where the female students lived....

Cruz started his college career at Princeton University. I'd bet real money he went there to change the status of the university to conservative. I am convinced there are Christian madrasa. He and Perry are statistics we can do without. They are twins. Seriously scarey. Dove tail this mess with "W". What is it with these conservatives that they love bloodshed so much? Revenge, too. "Smoking gun, Wanted dead or alive." Give me a break this is more than politics. This is extremism begun in their early school years.

Cruz was responsible for separating Homeland Security out of the fiscal year budget and now he hands it to Republican leadership to find a way out of this political nightmare. Cruz is playing politics with our national security. What kind of power is this? The Republicans have no leadership. They allow morons to carryout political agendas with the USA security. I don't why I am surprised because "W" did the same thing with the PDB.  

Singling out Homeland Security is a joke. It is a joke that the Republicans can do that and get away with it as if they have extraordinary power over the Executive Branch. Secretary Johnson is going nuts trying to protect this country and it is nothing more than a joke.
Senator Ted Cruz wants to invade Germany in order to carry out the war with Russia that will end the impasse with the rebels.

Let's think about that for a minute. 

Cruz sees no borders because the USA is a member of NATO. Cruz is stating the USA appears weak because there are bombs falling in Ukraine to end Russian occupation.

Let's think about that for a minute.

If the USA goes forward, under the direction of Senator Cruz, there is a good chance Ukraine at the very least will be the war front and few people will be living there.

The leadership of the USA, in Cruz World, is weak and making poor decisions everywhere including Syria. I didn't know we were in Syria. Does the President know we are in Syria or is this another McCain thing?

See according to Cruz the President is sending money to train more people that are masquerading as loyalists to a new government in Syria. Does the President know the vetting of the trainees in Saudi Arabia is failing to be the new military Syria needs? Did Cruz pass on his intelligence. Not his personal intelligence, that is in question, but the intelligence that the trainees in Saudi Arabia are phonies. Will Saudi Arabia actually put up with phonies?  

Ted Cruz on funding Homeland Security. He created the mess, so what is the resolve before ISIL comes over the southern border?

Ah, there it is. The defunding of Homeland Security is a political football to provide leverage by Republicans over the Executive Order power of the President. Heady stuff. And, of course, now that Cruz has created a stupid wedge issue, he is handing off the mess to Republican leadership. So, Speaker what is the answer about funding for Homeland Security? I have a thought. Put Cruz at the border and have him think it through. 

Cruz, besides the money received for campaigns, has no party. He is in the stratosphere looking down on the weakling Republicans as if a god is going to through bolts of lightning as if Thor! Thor is the thunder and lightning guy, right? 

Oh, good. We now have Rick Perry verbally threatening Cruz for the presidency. For real? The man with a ranch named "N- Head" is challenging the other Texan that has no clue about the southern border, but, has a mouth that attempts to hide that fact. 

Has Cruz and Perry noticed there is a real economic crisis in Texas by those that paid to elect them to office? I would love to know if either of the Texas Titans want regulation to prevent exploitation of natural resources so they last past the exploitation of one generation?

It is unfortunate Texas doesn't have it's own currency, even Russia's Ruble would be worth more. 

I have only one question for Governor Perry; "Has Scalice ever visited the ranch on a pilgramage?"
By funding Homeland Security on a continuing resolution the Republicans are increasing the length of time the southern border remains porous. In every proposal of Immigration Reform the Republicans have demanded the southern border was secure without any people crossing into the country. By prolonging the necessary funding to end this problem to move to immigration reform the Republicans are guaranteeing the border crossings will continue.

The Republicans have to fully fund Homeland Security so it can achieve the impossible.

Leave Governor Christi alone. FOX News defames him enough, no one else has to.

February 7, 2015

Rumors (click here) surfaced this week that New Jersey governor and potential 2016 candidate Chris Christie was facing a new criminal investigation.
MSNBC’s “The Rachel Maddow Show,” of all places, found out that those rumors are not quite true Friday.

“Any characterization that we are investigating the Governor about this is just not true,” the U.S. attorney’s office in New Jersey told MSNBC. “[W]e talk to people all the time. It doesn’t mean we’re investigating anybody....

I would imagine a Governor would be asked about many things by a US Attorney. I have said it before and I'll say it again, leave Christi alone. He isn't that kind of person. Dems keep getting caught in their own deceptions and lies. That isn't good.  Crying wolf will lead to a disinterested public and when it is important they won't be there to hear it.

I want to see the next generation of federal office holders from the Democratic Party. I want to hear about state legislature stars and the legislation that should be considered for a federal agenda. The next platform for the Democrats should be sculpted now based in successes in state legislatures. The Dems have to engage the discussions and not just reactionary to the outrageous ideas of Republicans. The Dems have to lead and give people a clear vision of the potential for success in their lives when Democrats are elected. The Blue States have a lot of success and the quality of life is the best in the country. Those accomplishments are not frivolous. The accomplishments of Democrats should be part of the daily diet for Americans. Democrats are not ideologues. Programs that are proven to work should be brought to the federal level from the states along with promising and up and coming candidates.

2020 is around the corner when a new census will dictate federal districts. We need not only Democrats in the US Congress, but, in governorships and state legislatures. That is a lot of work, we need to get started. 

This Christi stuff is all negative campaigning. People don't like it. When a US Attorney comes out with indictments then I'll pay attention.
