In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR

  1. am deeply saddened that you are the President of the United States. You sir are an embarrassment to the Oval Office. My son, as well as most Marines I know, despise you and your lack of representation for our military.

    Your ridiculous rules of engagement have caused the massive amount of casualties on your watch in Afghanistan. While we watch your media pander to your administration and clearly sweep things under the rug for you, I fully understand Marines die. You have tied their hands & feet! SNIP

  2. Good morning & happy New Year!
    1, little 0 will be in Phoenix on Thursday, my sympathies to fellow WHD readers who live in that area.
    2. Boehner seems to be headed for de-throning with poles showing We the People seek a change in our current direction of destruction in DC. Cry babies go home.
    3. We all know that 0 played more golf than weeks in a year, yet was still an outstanding leader/ruler in his fundamental destruction of our Republic.

    1. I’m going to be watching no.2 very closely.
      McConnell is another noodle to be contended with given his efforts to defeat Tea Party candidates in the last election.
      Neither Boehner nor McConnell play fair.
      I guess there is no ‘fair’ in politics.

      1. Never. We watched Shooter last night on Netflix, a 2007 film. It s creepy & scary knowing that this type of bs happens for real.

  3. I just read that the creepy Geraldo tried to crash the NYPD funeral today and was turned away.
    Good….Geraldo is an agitator for the Left.

      1. The idiot even took a selfie of himself outside the funeral/
        Another picture showed a different angle and I would not call them proper dress shoes for a funeral…Dock-siders… husband wears them for dressy causal or casual.

        1. I guess we know where he stands as far as law enforcement is concerned. Docksiders? Selfie? I’m all for sending him back to Cuba or wherever he is from!

          1. I find it so funny that people know weird stuff like this. Why are >>>Y’all<<< so obsessed with trying to figure people out based upon their race? Dude is just a chump that likes to take selfies.

          1. Mandy, Skeletor was not a progressive. He was a totalitarian. He was the ultimate villain. Even He-Man himself feared Skeletor. Geez… Sometimes I feel like we aren’t connecting

  4. Tried to post a comment and went straight to Mod Jail. Can’t get the playoff on the TV and I noticed Keith only has a VCR and the only tapes he has are old Elvis Presley movies. Ooh!! Viva Las Vegas. Ann-Margaret!!!

    I’m gonna try posing my comment again here and see what happens.

    This is the quietest Sunday Open Thread in my admittedly faulty memory (probably due to loss of brain cells from a combination of the Dirty Martinis and My Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Classes. Although I’ve only gone to sleep once in 3 Years (of Jiu Jitsu. Probably more often with the Martinis!!

    Now, a completely new topic!

    I had an idea to drive the ACLU crazy. I’m going to ask them to do something about all of the Christian Symbols I keep seeing along almost every public road. You know! Those big poles connected by wires. They look suspiciously like CROSSES to ME!! Can’t be having any of that!!!

  5. Thank you, Keith, for the open threads you have provided. I have enjoyed reading and learning from your posters. Everyone is very supportive and makes me truly believe that the future is full of hope albeit it will require lots of hard work and attention to our civic responsibilities.

    Your blog is one of the first things I check every day. And there are not that many that I do check and trust.

  6. Wow……just got through reading about this Scandal with Prince Andrew and some financier named Jeffrey Epstein. Bizarre stuff…….sounds like Epstein set traps for elite clients or fellow pervs by luring them with underage girls and such. Not only will this rock London with another Royal Sex Scandal but it appears it may have a chance to derail Hillary in 2016.

    Apparently, BIll visited this guys private island in the Bahamas on several occasions. This guy had hidden video equipment taping so called client parties. I am sorry if Bill is on a private island with young girls as bait there is better than even chance that this could be a Huge Pot Hole for Hillary. There is no way she survives this. If she dumps him will this country embrace a 68 year old divorcee? There is already rumors he has a steady paramour anyway. Heck, the Secret Service has a code name for her.–and-royalty-9954397.html

    1. Wonder what kind of living arrangements they would all have back at the WH. Hill, Bill, Huma, Bill’s paramour(s)….even Chelsea and the granddaughter

      In the book, Blood Feud, Klein talks about the fact that Hill and Bill do not spend much time together. She is at her Ambassador Row manse most of the time, while he is either at his library in Arkansas or in NY. They aren’t even a ‘couple’ – what a charade! This whole mess is Fellini-esque!

      1. The luxury Penthouse atop the Library is where he “entertains.” A gourmet restaurant that delivers and caters is nearby…convenient.
        Interesting that you mention Huma…lots of talk there…?

    2. Most wealthy men that are slave to alcohol and the party scene do this kind of thing. If I ever have a daughter I’m going to do all possible to convince that the club scene is like throwing yourself in a feeding pool and teach her tons of kung fu…tons and tons of kung fu.

  7. A man has tried to strangle a police officer while shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is great), the latest in a spate of attacks in France that have heightened fears of terrorism.


    1. In addition to these two attacks, since the Islamic State ordered attacks on the West in mid-October there have been two cops assaulted by a Muslim with a hatchet in New York; two cops shot dead by a Muslim in New York; a station full of cops in a suburb of Tours, France, attacked by a Muslim with a knife; a soldier killed by a Muslim in Quebec, and a crowd of pedestrians plowed down by a Muslim in Dijon, France. Am I missing one or two?

  8. Female anesthesiologist from India who administered Propofol to Joan Rivers finally identified. She failed to recognize deteriorating vital signs!!! Paramedics were not called for 10-20 minutes, and no one did CPR while waiting for ambulance!

    How could such incompetence take place with THREE doctors in the room??? Too busy taking selfies? All of them should lose their license – this was so preventable. Call me racist, but never, ever will I have anything to do with non-American doctors! Wait til the horror stories start coming out with Obamacare!

      1. Agree about prison time. I’m having a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that three doctors were there and not one of them gave CPR.
