HALF-FULL REPORT 11/17/17

keep-calm-karmaBack in the HFR saddle again, and once more can’t thank Jack Kelly enough for his superb HFRs while I was in the Gobi and Himalayas.

We’re going to call this the Karma on Steroids HFR.

This is going to be so much fun you’ll be begging me to stop – like Trump warned about too much winning.  “Please, Jack, we can’t stand having so much fun,” you’ll say, and I’ll reply, “No, no, no, we’re going to keep having fun and more fun and more fun.  We’re going to Make America Fun Again!”

We gotta start with Senator Frankenstein.  A nicer, sweeter, more karmic thing couldn’t happen to the creepiest schmuck libtard in the Senate than this yesterday (11/16):  Journalist Leann Tweeden Accuses Sen. Al Franken of Fondling, Kissing Her Without Consent.

And it’s no “she said” accusation.  She gave the press a photo of Franken molesting her while asleep – Franken is caught double red-handed, pun intended.  The photo captioned SENATOR PERV was the huge Drudge headline.

Yet that is only the very start of all the karma this week – bad for the bad guys, good for the good guys.  Here we go…

HOW ABOUT A FABULOUSLY HAPPY NEW YEAR?

firecrackersTo my fellow TTpers -

At last, after exploring Hidden Eastern Europe, the Mysteries of the Gobi, and Everest and Beyond – my 4th Himalaya Helicopter Expedition – I’m back home with Rebel. And already, people are asking me, “What’s next?”

Actually, Rebel and I can hardly wait for our New Year’s Celebration in Portugal.

Click on that link, and up will come a Pdf of an exploration and experience with dozens of photos that I guarantee will blow you away. The pictures above are the fireworks over Cascais Bay in front of our balcony party at the famous Miragem Hotel.

For here’s a question – how many New Year’s Eves have you had? They come and go, some better than others.

But how many New Year’s Eves have you had that were so extraordinary you’ll never forget them as long as you live? If you’re able to join Rebel and me on our New Year’s Celebration in Portugal, this will be one of them.

Yet it’s so much more – we get to explore one of Europe’s most beautiful and historical countries, with great food, wine, culture and wonderfully friendly people.And the safest, far from the “refugee” plague infesting Europe elsewhere.

Everything is taken care of, marvelous hotels, great meals, all activities – plus you’ll be with your fellow TTPers to spend time together and talk about the world. All the costs and details are in the link above.

We also can put you in touch with a travel agent I’ve used for 25 years who can get you a great deal on airfares.

Bottom line: Just as you don’t want to spend New Year’s in your pajamas watching TV, you don’t want to have one no more memorable than so many others. And you’re only going to have so many of them to come.

What’s more, this New Year’s is one we have so much to celebrate, to be grateful for, and look forward to. So if you want to make bringing in 2018 a very special experience of a lifetime, please consider being with Rebel and me at our New Year’s Celebration in Portugal.

After perusing the itinerary, info, and photos, if you have any questions, feel free to write to me at jack@wheelerexpeditions.com.

Let’s have a Fabulously Happy New Year’s together!

- Jack

THE RED QUEEN, THE SCUM OF THE SWAMP, AND GRESHAM’S WOMEN

‘Let the jury consider their verdict,’ the King said, for about the twentieth time that day. ‘No, no!’ said the Queen. ‘Sentence first — verdict afterwards.’

‘Stuff and nonsense!’ said Alice loudly. ‘The idea of having the sentence first!’ ‘Hold your tongue!’ said the Queen, turning purple. ‘I won’t!’ said Alice.

‘Off with her head!’ the Queen shouted at the top of her voice. Nobody moved. ‘Who cares for you?’ said Alice, (she had grown to her full size by this time.) ‘You’re nothing but a pack of cards!’

--Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, Chapter XII

Right now is one of those moments when America morphs into Alice’s Wonderland, with the Lying Swine Fake News DemFascist Media manufacturing their latest cause célèbre for the purpose of lynching someone on the right – with all the Swamp Rat Rinos quivering in agreement: “Yes! Sentence first, verdict after! Off with his head!”

You’re not going to get a more gin-clear example of the cowardice of Capitol Hill Pubs than their reaction to the WaPo’s lynching of Roy Moore.

Not a single one of them, not even Ted Cruz or Mike Lee, has the huevos to point out the obvious maxim that “extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence” – immensely more than some 40 year-old “she said” allegation – and that WaPo and the entire howling mob of the Left are “nothing but a pack of cards.”

Not a single one of them has made a call for fair play regarding the scurrilous accusations of four decades ago against a man with a lifetime record of Christian decency.

Yesterday (11/13), Swamp Rat Jeb Bush, without bothering to talk to Moore at all, demanded Moore quit his Senate race for the sake of “decency.”

Let me explain something to you, Jeb, you indecent schmuck.  Decency is to assume innocence when a good man faces filthy flimsy accusations, rather than a yellow-belly cave-in to WaPo smears.

ROY MOORE IS GOING TO WIN

Judge Roy Moore

Judge Roy Moore

The decision of Senate leaders to have the Senate Ethics Committee “investigate” the charge of sexual harassment against Sen. Al Franken is a blunder for which the good guys should make the bad guys pay dearly.

What’s to investigate? The photo (taken by Al’s brother) proves beyond a shadow of a doubt he felt up Leeanne Tweeden while she was sleeping. Franken admitted it, though he claims it was just innocent fun.

All there is to decide is if feeling up a sleeping woman is an offense grave enough to warrant expulsion from the Senate.

If it isn’t, the hypocrisy with regard to the treatment of Roy Moore is glaringly obvious.

If it is, the fact McConnell et al think the charge against Franken should be investigated before any action is taken against him offers Moore a clear line of attack/defense. Either way, Moore wins.

SILENCE ON SLEAZE-BOB MENENDEZ

bobsbabesI pronounce Democrat leaders, left-wing feminists and Beltway journalists guilty of gross negligence and hypocrisy over a dirty rotten sleazeball in their midst.

For the past 11 weeks, Bob Menendez has been on trial for 18 counts of bribery, fraud and corruption involving nearly $1 million in gifts and donations. The jury remained deadlocked as of today (11/16).

A new Media Research Center analysis reported that ABC, CBS and NBC devoted 40 times more of their morning and evening TV newscast coverage this past week to Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore's alleged sexual assault accusers than to the ongoing federal trial of one of the Democrats' most powerful, visible and entrenched figures on Capitol Hill.

Four years ago, when the FBI raided the Florida home of creepy Democrat donor and eye doctor Salomon Melgen, Menendez suddenly remembered that he had failed to pay back his "hermano" $60,000 for private-jet flights to the Caribbean -- where Melgen owns a tony home in the private Casa de Campo resort.

As government investigators discovered, the "friendship" entailed much more than backslaps and beach nights. Melgen was convicted this spring on 67 counts of massive Medicare fraud totaling $90 million.

Prosecutors allege Menendez and his staff pulled strings and put pressure on public officials to back off Melgen's billing blow-up. And that’s just one example of how sleazy Sleaze-Bob is.

A YEAR OF FRENZY AND MADNESS

The Left today is ruled by the goddesses of madness, frenzy, and rage

The Left today is ruled by the goddesses of madness, frenzy, and rage

America is in another of its Salem moments. Frenzy is almost a living, breathing monster. It moves from host to host, fueled by rumor, gossip, and self-righteous furor.

The Greeks knew well of the transitory nature of these mass panics. They claimed such fits were inspired by the Maniae, the three daughters of Night who were the goddesses of insanity, rage, and crazed frenzy. We’ve seen all three of them in action throughout the past year.

Let’s review the tragic series of madnesses with which America has been plagued since last November.

WHY ANY FRIEND OF ISRAEL MUST SUPPORT TRUMP

friends-of-israel-support-trumpPresident Trump's Middle East policy is simple: Back our friends and scare the hell out of our enemies, and negotiate where possible with our competitors like Russia and China.

By and large it's working, unlike the catastrophically failed policies of the previous two administrations. Trump did what he said he would do and succeeded. You wouldn't know that from the #fakenews media.

Both George W. Bush and Obama tied up Israel’s hands, sandbagging her against her enemies – Obama in particular, while Hillary would have been disastrously worse.

So let’s review why anyone who claims to be a friend of Israel must support Trump against the alternative. One can criticize Trump all day with justification, but the existential issue of Israel's survival requires Jews to support him. Jewish never-Trumpers are infected with what our rabbis of antiquity called "baseless hatred."

WE CANNOT AFFORD NOT TO CUT TAXES

can-we-afford-tax-cutThe folks in Washington have a knack for almost always asking the wrong question, and then coming up with an answer that makes things worse.

The current debate about tax reform is a prime example.

Many Democrat critics, some Republican critics (mainly from the conservative side), and many in the media argue that we cannot “afford” a tax cut.

In reality, we cannot afford not to cut tax rates.  Here’s why.

HALF-FULL REPORT 11/10/17

Saudi Arabia is shaking up the world. Among those most rattled are Iran, Islamist terrorists, DC swamp things, Democrats and Twitter.

The earthquake began last weekend when police arrested dozens of prominent Saudis – including 11 princes and 4 government ministers-- in an anti-corruption crackdown.

The biggest fish is Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, a grandson of Saudi Arabia’s founder, whose personal fortune is estimated at $17 billion.

Alwaleed bin Talal is a major donor to the Clinton Foundation, a client of the Podesta Group, and – bye the bye – the guy who paid Barack Obama’s tuition at Harvard.

************

The Saudis intercepted a ballistic missile fired from Yemen at Riyadh Saturday (11/4). KSA’s foreign ministry blamed Iran, called this “an act of war.”

************

saad-haririAlso Saturday, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri resigned during a visit to Riyadh. There was a plot to kill him, Hariri said. Hariri’s father, former Prime Minister Rafik Hariri, was murdered in 2005.

Wherever Iran settles, it sows discord, devastation and destruction,” Hariri said in a televised address from Riyadh.

Aggressions by Hezbollah are tantamount to a declaration of war against Saudi Arabia, KSA’s Gulf Affairs minister said Tuesday (11/7).

************

When will the storm winds from KSA blow into the USA? Before the next HFR, I bet.

Richard Pollock summarizes here why now it’s the Democrats who have a Russian problem.

************

Democrats won big Tuesday (11/7) in New Jersey (ho hum), and in Virginia (big deal). Ed Gillespie did worse than any GOP gubernatorial candidate in more than 30 years.

Exit polls make clear the reason for the debacle.

************

In 1979, when he was 32, Alabama GOP Senate candidate Roy Moore felt up a 14-year-old girl, the Washington Post reported yesterday (11/9).

If the allegations are true, Moore should resign. I doubt they are, for two reasons:
