dems-ides-of-march“Beware the Ides of March,” the soothsayer in Shakespeare’s play warned Julius Caesar.

That was good advice. On that date (March 15, 44 BC), Caesar was stabbed to death.

Democrats also should heed the soothsayer’s warning.

*Rep. Adam Schiff scheduled a hearing of the House Intelligence Committee for March 14, with Felix Sater the only witness.

The purpose of this hearing – like last week’s featuring disgraced Trump lawyer Michael Cohen – is to distract attention from real news breaking that day that could embarrass Democrats.

On March 14, the depositions of Christopher Steele and David Kramer in a libel suit will be made public.  And that’s just one of the many knives out for the Dems the middle of this month.



What thousands of California city streets look like today

What thousands of California city streets look like today

Californians brag that their state is the world's fifth-largest economy. They talk as reverentially of Silicon Valley companies Apple, Facebook and Google as the ancient Greeks did of their Olympian gods.

Hollywood and universities such as Caltech, Stanford and Berkeley are cited as permanent proof of the intellectual, aesthetic and technological dominance of West Coast culture.

Californians also see their progressive, one-party state as a neo-socialist model for a nation moving hard to the left.

But how long will they retain such confidence?  Not for much longer.  Here’s why and it’s horrific.



the-left-ragethe-happy-rightAmong the many, many things that starkly define the differences between the Left and the right, none is more wretched than the difference in how they approach life.

Leftists, even when they are in power, are generally miserable, discontent with America as it was founded and as it is, always banging their heads against some perceived wall.

Those on the Right, on the other hand, are characterized by general good-natured love of country and the quest to save America from the radical Left's reprehensible appropriation of the culture, academia, the media, and entertainment.  Conservative people revel in their families, work, and self-reliance and their good fortune to be Americans.  They are grateful people.

Leftist are filled with anger, conservatives are filled with gratitude.  What accounts for this?



russians-rise-upChina is rapidly expanding its presence and control in Russia’s Trans-Baikal region. This drive is, in part, being driven by Beijing’s economic interests in Siberia and the Russian Far East as a whole.

In the past, Moscow routinely played up popular fears of Chinese expansion as a way to unite the country; but the center’s ability to do so is declining rapidly as ever more Russians now blame the Russian business community and its allies in the government for China’s advance.

Indeed, talk about China is reinforcing divisions among Russians, intensifying their anger at the domestic business and political elites who appear to be profiting at their expense. That may explain why people across the Trans-Baikal have been voting for Communist candidates or at least for those politicians who promise to oppose both Beijing and Moscow.



CPAC 2019 started off Wednesday (2/27) with a bang with this video.  The highlight of course is President Trump speaking tomorrow morning (11:30am 3/02).  As you know, he returned from his Hanoi Summit with Kim Jong-un a little early.

The first thing that drops your jaw about this event is the amazing extent to which our POTUS is greeted as the world’s greatest rock star by the Vietnamese.

Actually, because the Fascist Fake News Media suppresses it, few understand the extent to which President Trump is a hero to countless millions in countries all over the world.  But how astounding it must be for Vietnam Vets to see this in Vietnam still run by the same Commies they fought a half century ago.

Yet there it is, especially among young Vietnamese guys in Hanoi – the grandchildren of the Viet Cong, who so admire Trump they are flooding Hanoi barbershops to get Trump haircuts.

What POTUS pulled off yesterday (2/28) – walking from the summit – stunned tout le monde, not least the Norks and Chicoms.  What a cold shower awakening to what they are up against in El Donaldo.  Here we go, a great HFR for a great week.



madeira-paradise At Wheeler Expeditions, we define an “expedition” as an adventure with a purpose, with a mission to be accomplished.

We have hard core adventure expeditions exploring the Gobi Desert or the Amazon, overland expeditions across Central Asia or the Sahara, helicopter expeditions through the Himalayas or the Albanian Alps, cultural expeditions to Israel’s Holy Land or tribal people in Southeast Asia, safari wildlife expeditions to Zambia or Borneo.

Then there’s a fun expedition – with the purpose and mission to simply enjoy being in magical places with luxury accommodations, wonderful food and wine, surrounded by natural beauty, Goldilocks weather (not too hot, not too cold, just right), exploring something cool to see and do around every corner, just relax and have fun.

Ideally, such places would be easy to get to and nearby – not half-way around the world.  And where it won’t cost an arm and a leg to have a life-memorable experience you’ll always remember with a smile.  Oh, without a lot of time, say in about 10 days or so.

Well, there are such places – and we’re going to a trio of them this coming June.  We call them Atlantic Paradises. We’re going to focus on one this week – the Portuguese island territory of Madeira.



dead-48hrs-agoI thought it was very bad when Republicans lost control of the House of Representatives. Thanks to the clown show put on yesterday (2/27) by Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD), I’m rethinking that.

The new chairman of the House Oversight Committee scheduled a hearing for Wednesday, with President Trump’s former personal lawyer the only witness, to give the Lying Swine something to cover instead of the president’s historic meeting with Kim Jong Un in Vietnam.

It was ludicrous to think Michael Cohen – who shortly will begin serving three years in prison for crimes that have nothing to do with Trump – would have some “bombshell” to reveal to the Committee he didn’t tell Special Counsel Robert Mueller or the Southern District of New York.

But this was an opportunity for Democrats to throw brown stuff at the president, hoping some of it would stick.

Things didn’t go according to plan. The Dems’ hangover this morning was the groggy realization that Cohen put the stake through the heart of multiple anti-Trump fantasies.



how-to-make-them-angryIn what almost certainly will be the last thing he does before submitting his final report to Attorney General William Barr, Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed an additional sentencing recommendation in the Paul Manafort case Saturday (2/23).

Leftists had high hopes for what they might find in it.  Alas for them, there was no mention of Trump, or Russia, or collusion.

Yet hope springs eternal in the libtard breast. Trump/Russia dead-enders just adjusted their predictions, pretended their disappointment never happened, notes liberal journalist Glenn Greenwald.

Now it’s Mueller’s silence that’s damning for Trump, says Franklin Foer of the Atlantic.

Moonbats pin their dwindling hopes on Mueller’s final report. Those hopes took a blow Monday (2/25).



worse-fascistsHi y’all,

After a brief hiatus from writing, Tex is back!  Believe me I’ve missed my fellow TTPers.  While traveling the world extensively the past several months, attempting to save corporate IT from themselves, I’ve kept my eyes and ears on a very disturbing trend:

The clear censorship by Silicon Valley of anyone they consider “offensive” and any speech they consider “hate”.

In other words, any political ideas to the right of Mao are now heresy, along with thoughts that go against the constantly-morphing, “intersectional”, twisted orthodoxy of snowflake Millennials or 90% of their GenX college professors.

And large tech corporations, replete with the kinds of “leadership” teams Ayn Rand so accurately predicted, composed of James Taggart wannabes all too willing to burn conservatives on a virtual stake.  (Hey, you’ve read Atlas Shrugged, right?)

“So, Tex, why should I care about a few commentators not getting to use Twitter anymore?  Heck, I’ve never tweeted in my life and I’m doing great!”

Well, because it doesn’t end there.
