What In The World Is Going On?

ELDER PATRIOT - What’s behind Mark Zuckerberg’s attack on Donald Trump?


Zuckerberg is a New World Order advocate who believes he is smart enough to tell the rest of us how to live.  To that end he uses his Facebook platform to censor and censure conservative discussion while allowing even the most hate-filled diatribes to go unpunished as long as they advance a liberal cause.  He’s been getting away with this because Obama’s Justice Department won’t do anything about it.  A Trump presidency threatens his control over our dialogue.



There’s a reason very few people take Lindsey Graham seriously.  Yesterday, the South Carolina senator turned the Senate Appropriations Committee over to Bono of U2 fame and forced the other committee members listen to him admonish us for not doing more to increase the standard of living in the Middle East so as to eliminate the basis of terrorists’ incentive.


The nations of the Middle East are among the richest in the world made so by our need for oil and our unwillingness to drill in the United States.  They should take care of themselves.  The truth is we are soon to be $20 trillion in debt due in large part to stupid politicians like Graham who believe it is the American taxpayers’ obligation to save the world.


Tell Senator Graham that we already gave at the pump.



Ted Cruz’s religious zealotry is scary.  As Texas’ Solicitor General he actually argued that Texans had no right to sell (therefore to buy) sex toys.  The brief he submitted said, “There is no substantive-due-process right to stimulate one’s genitals for non-medical purposes unrelated to procreation or outside of an interpersonal relationship.”



Donald Trump must be doing something right.  What other reason could there be for billionaires including George Soros, Tom Steyer and Paul Egerman to spend hundreds of millions of dollars funding the civil unrest we’re seeing unleashed against Mr. Trump.


These men are among the most selfish humans on the planet.  They are not motivated by altruism even in the least.


Could it be that Trump threatens their financial control over the American taxpayer?



What Reince really meant was, “C’mon Donald, we stacked the deck almost a year ago.  Shame on you for thinking we give a damn about the will of the voters.”  By now everyone should be acutely aware that we Republicans care only about maintaining our personal power.



The Center for Disease Control has released a report that finds a sharp increase in STD’s among Americans.  A fact sheet declared, “The approximately 1.4 million cases of chlamydia represent the highest number of annual cases of any condition ever reported to CDC,” and “Substantial increases were also seen among reported cases of gonorrhea and syphilis.”


Can someone explain why we spend millions of dollars trying to curtail smoking and alcohol consumption but use the full force of pop culture to encourage sexual activity across all demographic groups?


In a free society the only way to protect individual freedom is to educate people to the risks inherent in any behavior.  This is properly handled in the case of alcohol and tobacco use.  Not in the least by our schools or the media when it comes to STDs..



John Kerry has confirmed that it is the official policy of the Obama Administration to undermine Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.


Kerry used the State Department’s Annual Report on Human Rights to, “remove even a scintilla of doubt or confusion that the United States is opposed to the use of torture in any form at any time by any government or non-state actor.”


Kerry is an embarrassment.  He was one of the architects of the Iran Nuclear Deal that has created an existential threat to the entire world.  In Kerry’s mind, the threat of millions of innocents being incinerated isn’t a concern.  But, torturing a known enemy in order to save our young troops or to shorten a conflict is unconscionable.



Ever wonder how widespread government corruption really is?  We’ve all heard of the power of the bully pulpit but have we stopped to consider how far beyond the president’s spoken words that extends?


New Balance, the Boston-based shoe company, was promised a major contract from the Department of Defense if they kept their objections to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) under wraps.  The DOD never anted up and now New Balance is speaking out in an attempt to save themselves from the lowering of prices on goods from Viet Nam.


As government has grown bigger and become more intrusive in our lives it seems that the only “truth” we’ll get to hear about in the future will be the “truth” that leadership allows us to hear.



The U.S. Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is developing a program to track the social media postings of applicants requiring security clearances.


That makes sense but why is the Obama Administration blocking the same scrutiny of people arriving from the Middle East?
