In Virginia we will be conducting state and local elections on November 7, 2017, and here of late we have experienced a string of October/November surprises. Oddly, however, with a few exceptions these surprises concern national figures and enterprises, not Virginia figures or enterprises. Nonetheless, because we have told so many times that Democrats will come out in hordes to vote against Trump (He is not on the ballot, by the way.), these revelations ought to be relevant. Not certain yet, but it looks an awful lot like the rats have started abandoning their sinking ship.

Who Paid For The Trump Dossier?

There is this phony/faked dossier that gutter creatures put together to show that the Russians have President Donald Trump in their pocket. This pathetic dossier provided much of the basis for the appointment of a special prosecutor to investigate possible collusion by the Trump campaign with the Russian.

Did The Democratic Party Rig Its Presidential Primary Elections?

During his debates with Hillary Clinton, Trump took a lot of heat when he refused to say in advance that he would not contest the results of the election. Considering that many Democrats now believe H. Clinton had just cheated Bernie Sanders in the Democratic Party’s primary elections, in hindsight Trump looks far wiser than many gave him credit.

Did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Sell Out To The Russians?

This part considers new information that has come out related to the Uranium One deal with the Russians. Did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sell out to the Russians? I am not certain, but there actually are some things we should investigate. The Clinton’s are quite wealthy, and lots of their money came from foreign sources. The headache is that while lower level Federal employees have to avoid even the appearance of impropriety their political bosses don’t. Therefore, politicians, for the sake of enough cash, will do things that may not be illegal, but they should not be doing. Consider. When Bill Clinton gets $500,000 for making a speech from Russian businessmen, how silly is it when Democrats insist upon suing Donald Trump just because random foreigners stay in some of his hotels? Why would we want to ignore the fact that foreigners are giving the Clinton’s so much dough? What are these foreigners getting for their money (There was, by-the-way, much more money changing hands than $500,000.).

Are Democrats Actually Pro-Woman Or Womanizers?

I have not blogged much (just here => SEXUAL DELUSIONS: BELIEVING IN FALSEHOODS IS HARMLESS?) about the Harvey Weinstein scandal, but it keeps growing bigger. It has even coined a new phrase, “Weinstein Effect”.

What do I think is relevant about the scandal? This question: Why would we to put these people in charge of our children? What good is their advice on such things? They support Democrats so we should do so too? Who goes to people who don’t know how to manage a problem for advice on how to solve it?

Local “Surprises”

Recently, Virginia Democrats have well overstepped the bounds of commonsense, accusing their Republican opponents of virulent racism. That is something I covered in this post here, WHEN ARE THEY GOING TO STOP CALLING US RACISTS, BIGOTS, HATERS,……?. Well, it doesn’t seem the Democrats intend to stop soon.

Barbara Favola, a Democratic state senator who represents Arlington, Va., castigated Virginia’s Republican candidates and their supporters on Wednesday night, saying “they’re evil” and “we’re the good guys.”

Favola attended an Arlington County Democratic Committee monthly meeting at the Walter Reed Community Center where she fired up the crowd before the three Democratic candidates on the statewide ticket spoke to the crowd.

“What my colleagues didn’t really tell you is how dangerous it will be if the other side wins. They’re evil, we’re the good guys,” Favola said, as the room erupted with laughter, applause and cheers.

“Every one of you is an angel,” she added.

The state senator was joined by Democratic gubernatorial candidate Ralph Northam, lieutenant governor candidate Justin Fairfax, and attorney general candidate Mark Herring. Democratic Sen. Cory Booker (N.J.) also attended the rally to show his support for the Virginia Democratic ticket. (continued here)

Here is a video of that lady’s statement.


You wonder why people want to tell us what to think? Well, all of us have a tendency to think well of ourselves and badly of anyone who disagrees with us. What we forget is the comparison that matters. How do we compare to our Creator?

What freedom of religion involves is letting our friends and neighbors run their own lives and pursue their happiness their own way. We need government so we can keep each other from infringing upon each others rights, not so we can create some form of Utopia. Do we all agree upon what Utopia looks like? Then how are we going to create Utopia without warring with each other first?

Consider what happens every time we give some “great” leader the power to create Utopia for us. Don’t we find out once again the truth of this statement?

Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men. — John Emerich Edward Dalberg Acton, first Baron Acton (from here)

Instead of trusting men to solve our problems, we each need to trust our Creator. If we obey his commands, He will provide us what we need — not what we want, but what we need.

Psalm 4 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

Evening Prayer of Trust in God.

For the choir director; on stringed instruments. A Psalm of David.

Answer me when I call, O God of my righteousness!
You have relieved me in my distress;
Be gracious to me and hear my prayer.

O sons of men, how long will my honor become a reproach?
How long will you love what is worthless and aim at deception? Selah.
But know that the Lord has set apart the godly man for Himself;
The Lord hears when I call to Him.

4 Tremble, and do not sin;
Meditate in your heart upon your bed, and be still. Selah.
Offer the sacrifices of righteousness,
And trust in the Lord.

Many are saying, “Who will show us any good?”
Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O Lord!
You have put gladness in my heart,
More than when their grain and new wine abound.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.



  1. It’s funny that the only Russian collusion I’ve seen so far seems to be with the Clintons and DNC. Nothing proven of course but lines point much more clearly in that direction than anything I’ve seen or heard regarding Trump. Mueller is investigating the wrong people.

  2. Uhh… I am not sure what you intended with your post here, Tom.. I’m a little confused. Some of these linked articles don’t support your intended theme. But be that as it may….

    Who Paid For The Trump Dossier? Who cares. Let Mueller check it out if it’s all that important.

    Did The Democratic Party Rig Its Presidential Primary Elections? Looks like it according to Brasille.. but again, so what? It’s history… the Dems should be looking to 2018/2020.

    Did Secretary of State Hillary Clinton Sell Out To The Russians? Who cares? Old history. That Russian company that got the uranium rights was prohibited by established law to transport any of it internationally. Since you are mixng apples and oranges in your post in this section…. the Clintons have every right to pursue their income streams as they wish; no one holds public office. Trump is a sitting president and is violating the emoluments clause.

    Are Democrats Actually Pro-Woman Or Womanizers? Um.. both? I mean, as a matter of platform it’s not likely any party will proudly proclaim they are womanizers. But skipping that… humans are humans anywhere. I am sure there are as many dem womanizers and there are GOP womanizers. But more to the point of your remarks here…..
    You said…
    “This question: Why would we to put these people in charge of our children? What good is their advice on such things?”
    Well, gee, Tom… you voted for a President that has been accused.. and self-admitted… that he is a female abuser… if not in fact then he certainly qualifies as an enabler. You surrendered your moral religious convictions simply for political ideology.


    1. I find it a bit ironic that when it comes to chatter about what the dems did or didn’t do with the answer being, as Rafiki would admonish us with a rap on the head with his stick, “that’s in the past, it’s history, it doesn’t matter”
      Did not the republicans say the same throughout the campaign—- which only seemed to incur the ire of the dems who loudly screamed for special prosecution and investigations….

      It’s in the past, what does it matter……? so goes the modern day mantra

      And sure it is all in the past…as in it happened….been there done that and got the Tee shirt….however the problem is that none of it is going to stop…on either side of the aisle as the gloves have been thrown off and it is now a new time of down and dirty.

      Adam and Eve fell from Grace…that was in the past…what does it matter….???
      Yet as we see…. it matters a great deal…..and we’ve yet to figure that out….

      I am perfectly happy to cite articles that don’t agree with me. Been doing it for years. It allows me to point out the bias.

      I hope Mueller does do a thorough investigation of BOTH parties. Maybe the man is honorable enough. Maybe he will just to it for CYA. But it is fairly obvious at this point that an investigation of the Democratic Party and the Clinton’s is far more likely to yield evidence of criminal collusion with the Russians than the investigation of Trump has produced.

      Trump is a sitting president and is violating the emoluments clause.

      That’s funny! It really is, but it also sad. In America, it is disappointing to see you and others so mechanically toe the party line.

      Here is the Emoluments clause. Have you actually read it?

      No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

      What has that got to do with operating a hotel? Technically, the Clinton’s slip by because they get their money from business people.

      As to your “who cares”, “so whats”, and your usual attacks on Trump. The Democratic Party is in a train wreck. Too many Democrats were more concerned about getting “what’s mine” than doing what is right, and I am sad to see it. My parents were Democrats, and I think most of my brothers and sisters still are. I would actually like to have a real alternative to the Republican Party, but right now I don’t.

      You surrendered your moral religious convictions simply for political ideology.

      I had the choice. I could wash my hands of the matter. I could pretend that not voting was not a half-choice for H. Clinton, but it would have been exactly that, or I could vote for the better of the two candidates. So I voted for Trump. Trump supports school choice, by the way.

      In this life we don’t get perfect choices. We just get to choose, and sometimes the alternatives are awful.

      Trump is not awful, but voting H. Clinton sure would have been.


      1. ” I could pretend that not voting was not a half-choice for H. Clinton, but it would have been exactly that, or I could vote for the better of the two candidates.”

        It wouldn’t have been a half choice for Hillary, it would’ve been a choice for Hillary. Vote for Trump, or stay at home and vote for Hillary were the only options. If the anti-Hillary folks had stayed home, we’d have another Clinton sitting as Commander in Chief now. I wanted Kasich, but he didn’t win the primaries so I went with the best choice I had. And (as I’ve mentioned before) I think Trump is doing a good job. Better than I’d expected.

        1. Trump surprised me too, and he positively left the Democrats sputtering in anger. Truth be told, however, is that Trump is their own fault. Without the sneaky mechanizations of the news media, it is doubtful he would have won.
