On Sunday, my wife and I went for a walk in a park located in an affluent area near where we live. We were struck by the fact that no one else there was speaking English. We heard only Chinese and Russian. It felt eerie, as if the park had somehow been taken over by, lost to, people who represented America’s two most populous strategic adversaries. Sunday evening was New Year’s Eve, so we tuned into the countdown to midnight at Times Square. This year, again, given pride of place just before midnight was John Lennon’s anthem to a world
Comments: Read the lyrics to “Imagine” (in article) and you’ll understand what Curry is talking about. And what is totally unacceptable to Americans. Yet an almost “official” beginning to a new year features Lennon’s “one world, no borders, no possessions” view that so many Liberals desire for our country...
I call malarky. John Lennon didn´t speak for most of us and I would be interested where Curry and his wife found no English being spoken an a park. The northeast? The west? I am assuming it wasn´t in the south or southwest.
I did stay up to watch the NYE celebration from NYC. There were many songs, I remember Imagine and New York New York. There are many celebrations of the New Year in America, if you don´t like the one on the news - find another one.
I go days only hearing chinese, russian, spanish, and some ebonics. And in my area there isn´t a house for sale under $1 million. The chinese buy up everything for years now. It turns out the chinese government owned banks give chinese buyers 150 year mortgages. what does that tell you ?
Well the liberal and progressive Democrats love mass immigration, both illegal and legal, thus forcing great future demographic change that is bound to happen by allowing a huge number of poor, uneducated, and socialist oriented peoples from all over the world into the USA. The Democrats know that the vast majority of those foreign born people will eventually become Democrat voters, useful to the Democrats in their quest to transform America into a socialist utopia. When all that has been going on over the years, the only interest that the wimpy Republicans have shown is toward the cheap labor factor for their business connected donors who fund a lot of their reelection campaigns.

While I share the concern that my country is changing (in a bad way), I’m not sure the demographics of who walks in a NYC park is evidence of it.
As someone who lives in an affluent western ‘burb of Houston, I, too, often notice the plethora of foreigners in the parks where my wife and I walk. As one of those “diversified” places liberals dream of, Houston has a populace that is roughly one quarter each of whites, blacks, Hispanics (yes, I know, also technically white), and Asians. Yet you don’t see one-quarter of each group represented in walks in the park.
It’s mainly Hispanics and Asians, and my conclusion is that black and white people are just too damned lazy to take a walk in the park. Of the white people who DO walk, most of them seem to be European. The True ‘Muricans are prolly inside watching TV, playing on their phone, or updating FakeBook.
Who wants to watch a bunch of stone or drunks in NYC? Did that a couple times. Saw Dick Clark on there after his stroke. I know he owned the show, but I was stunned they put him on. I have never watched since. CNN is even worse. I watched our local station in Seattle show the fireworks from the Space Needle. There camera coverage was quite mediocre. A Three Stooge Festival would have been more entertaining.
One Word; Naiveté In this Utopian World, where love, peace, security and harmony live; who plants, harvests and delivers the food, feeds the livestock. Who builds and maintains the infrastructure, cuts the timber, builds the houses, drives the trucks, ships the goods, sews the clothing, cleans the toilets, cares for the sick, buries the dead, builds the automobiles…? Who decides what jobs each person must do? Who decides what is right and wrong? Is there anyone maintaining morality and who decides what is moral? What form of government will it have? Anarchy, Democracy, Republic, Socialism, Communism, Fascism? And who decides that? People like John Lennon, who never produced anything but a few songs, and made millions doing it, can sit around and waste his life dreaming of things that are not possible. The rest of us must work, make a living, provide for our families, and obey the laws.
Don´t kiss this old Gal of a Country off just yet. We still outnumber the invaders 35 to 1. If we didn´t have these GD Democrats mucking things up, we´d be in pretty good shape. So, quit voting for the stupid people and get on with MAGA!
Not to contradict the heartfelt previous posts but If I’m not mistaken Lennon said “it’s just a song” effectively repudiating it’s frankly atheist/communist message and was quite pleased with his enormous income...
#1, I live in Northern Virginia (until Saturday when we’re moving to South Carolina) and I have walked through the food court in the local mall and not heard a single person speaking English. Though, in this area it is largely Mexicans, Pakistanis and Middle Easterners.
Houston and Fort Bend County has been one of THE fastest growing areas in the US. As a native Houstonian who remembers the days of Urban Cowboy, Kathy Whitmire, and jazz clubs, Houston is now the 4th largest urban center of the US...and it has all the expected negatives due to a series of corrupt Democrat mayors who spent more time traveling to other countries, paying off friends and slashing services and trying to manipulate courts for their favorite activist groups. Promo groups like to talk about how Houston is becoming more urbane, but in truth urban sprawl has spilled into the surrounding counties, demographics display the degredation of more and more Democratic ponzi schemes, and we´re FLOODED with immigrants, not just from other countries but also from other states looking for jobs.
Houston no longer feels Texan. As someone who grew up in its outskirts I often now have to leave my area and head west in order to feel like Im still in Texas. We have third world drivers here who have NO friggin clue as to how to drive, yet native Houstonians get blamed for having bad traffic. We have Yankees here bringing their Yankee expectations, but they still want the TEXAN friendliness.
What´s worse is its spreading to smaller towns. My uncle is mayor of a town near San Antonio and they are right where my little Houston suburbian town used to be 25 yrs ago.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer gave a tepid, droning, and utterly unconvincing performance on the Senate floor this morning where he repeatedly inserted the phrase, “the Trump shutdown.” The problem for Mr. Schumer is two-fold: First, very few watched his speech. Yes, CNN, MSNBC, etc., will replay it a few times, but none of those replays will generate as much interest as a single Trump tweet. Second, and this is even more critical, the phrase “Schumer Shutdown” is trending throughout Social Media circles – a development which has Mr. Schumer’s staff increasingly troubled. He doesn’t want to be the one
Despite previous reports that a Canadian billionaire and his wife died in a murder-suicide, a private investigation has reached another conclusion: that Barry and Honey Sherman were allegedly killed in a double-homicide. Barry Sherman, 75 and the CEO of a generic drug company called Apotex, and his philanthropic wife, Honey Sherman, 70, were found dead in their home north of Toronto in December. The CEO was allegedly worth nearly $5 billion at the time of his death, according to the Toronto Star. Shortly after, Toronto police began investigating their deaths as a possible murder-suicide. Now, the Toronto Star is reporting the Shermans may
Here is a MAGA riddle: What is even worse than Fake News? That’s right. Flake News. That’s because Flake News is not just Fake News. It is Stupid Fake News that actually makes you dumber for hearing it. The GOP’s flakiest flake in the whole flakey Senate failed Arizona Sen. Jeff “Flakey” Flake took to the Senate floor Wednesday to denounce President Trump because — like the vast majority of intelligent Americans — Mr. Trump does not have much faith in, or respect for, today’s lunatic leftwing media. In Mr. Flake’s speech, Mr. Trump’s harangues against the press earned the
President Trump has released his Fake News Awards. In the spirit of the historic occasion, Breitbart News came up with a few journalist awards of our own. News Anchor Who Ran Fastest to His Mommy Crying — CNN’s Don Lemon Dumbest News Anchor — CNN’s Chris Cuomo Most Pathetic News Outlet — Politico Actually tried to kill Trump’s Fake News Awards with a story about how they “could violate ethics rules.” Biggest Lie of the Year — ABC News Claimed that former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn was going to testify that candidate Trump asked him to contact the Russians. The truth is that as president-elect, Trump asked Flynn to
TEL AVIV — Glenn R. Simpson, the co-founder of the controversial opposition research firm Fusion GPS, stated in testimony it “makes sense” to him that the FBI paid for a trip to Rome by the former British spy who was contracted by Simpson’s company to produce the largely discredited 35-page anti-Trump dossier. Fusion GPS hired Christopher Steele, a former British intelligence agent, to do the work cited in the anti-Trump dossier. Last July, Steele reportedly traveled to Rome, where he met with an FBI contact to supply the agency with the anti-Trump dossier and other information he found during the course
Now that Donald Trump’s physician has declared the president to be in “excellent” health and mentally fit for office, let’s lay to rest yet another dead #Resistance narrative. “Dangerousness can be assessed without using formal diagnostic categories,” wrote Ilene A. Serling for Psychology Today in an article titled “The Dangerous Case of Donald Trump.” Dr. Serling argued that President Trump’s “attraction to brutal tyrants and also the prospect of nuclear war,” along with his “pit of fragile self-esteem” is indicative of “a crucial impairment of sanity.” Dr. Serling zigzagged between pathologizing the president and candidly associating his administration, and constituents, with “swastikas,
Our most effective U.S. presidents—and keep in mind, I’m saying “most effective,” not “best”—possessed, to one degree or another, a certain measure of indifference to human life. Whether you’re preserving the Union, inciting a World War, incinerating a couple hundred thousand J*ps, or getting up to some mischief in a Tonkin Gulf, indifference to human life is kind of a must. Reckless indifference is helpful, but depraved indifference? Now, that’s the stuff of presidential legend. (Snip)Oprah is practically defined by her depraved indifference to human life. During the course of her storied career, Oprah has repeatedly demonstrated a willingness to
NEW YORK—I walked down 8th Street yesterday, past the jumble of little secondhand shops and shoe stores and stand-up lunch counters and trendy bodegas, looking for the place where Susan Cabot was discovered. It was a club called the Village Barn (Snip)She was one of those women so sexy that it starts to be classified as a handicap. Case in point: She was still turning up in the news last week—31 years after her death—as the woman used by the CIA in 1959 to make sure that Jordan’s King Hussein had “female companionship” during his visit to the United States.
Word is as many as 200 members of Congress have now reviewed what some are calling a “shaking the foundation of our democracy” memo that links high-placed figures within both the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton campaign, the DNC, Deep State, and Establishment Media in an attempt to subvert the 2016 Election. It was never “Russian Collusion.” It was our own government/the Obama administration/Deep State, attempting to choose the next president – Hillary Clinton. If in fact 200 members of Congress have reviewed the memo and there have been NO LEAKS of that information, that would indicate it is devastating to the Democrats,
Whispers indicate there is a flurry of activity in BOTH the Obama and Clinton camps today. Both are reaching out BIG TIME to trusted media advocates to try and make certain this scandal is contained. Mr. Bongino doesn’t seem to think that will prove successful… (Tweet)
I was going to put this out there on Twitter, but why monetize my writing for people who hate me and my readers? WSJ took a look at Tweets from @realdonaldtrump since Inauguration Day, by the hour. Here’s what we found. https://t.co/XaCYb9ARNW — The Wall Street Journal (@WSJ) January 19, 2018 So the good people at the once-respectable Wall Street Journal have been following President Donald Trump´s tweets for a year now, reading them like the entrails of a goat to divine some sort of evidence that will once and forever end the presidency of a man the snobs of
A year ago today, Donald Trump officially assumed the office of the presidency, after dominating the nation´s politics for more than a year. Republicans did not see it coming. Democrats did not see it coming. And while Republicans finally have accepted the new era in American politics, Democrats haven´t. Which explains their anniversary gift to Trump. A government shutdown. That will show him, right? He´s in Mar-a-Lago laughing it up, having a good time, and golfing. It´s going up to 72 today, and 75 tomorrow. 20 degrees warmer than DC. The public is loving it. Congress cannot pull off a simple budget resolution. The
1988 Democratic presidential nominee Michael Dukakis ripped President Trump´s new tax law and offered optimism for Democrats ahead of the midterm elections. Dukakis, a former governor of the Bay State during the so-called economic "Massachusetts Miracle," said Republicans have lost their way when it comes to supporting fiscal responsibility. He questioned why they would champion a tax plan that may have costly ramifications for the national deficit. (Snip) "We just passed a tax bill, which I think is a piece of garbage," Dukakis, who lost his presidential bid to then-Vice President George Bush, said. "Look at these companies, though, that are
The White House says it will not negotiate with the Democrats on immigration until the end of the federal government shutdown. White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that, “We will not negotiate the status of unlawful immigrants while Democrats hold our lawful citizens hostage over their reckless demands.” She adds, “When Democrats start paying our armed forces and first responders we will reopen negotiations on immigration reform.” The government shut down at midnight after Congress failed to pass a spending deal. Sanders says, “Senate Democrats own the Schumer Shutdown,” adding,
Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York pinned the government shutdown on President Donald Trump, saying it has become "next to impossible" to negotiate with the White House.In a press availability, Schumer said he and Trump have been close to a deal to fund the government at least once.But, he said the "hard right" in the Republican Party later convinces Trump not to strike a deal with him."[Trump] won´t take yes for an answer," Schumer said. (Tweet) Schumer said that he does not know whether Trump´s apparent waffling on a deal is the work of adviser Stephen Miller, a
More than 130 congressional members have viewed the classified four-page memo detailing what senior government officials describe as “disturbing and explosive” surveillance abuse by employees of the FBI and Department of Justice under the Obama administration against President Trump and members of his campaign. But almost all of them were Republicans. Since the document was released Thursday to House members “only Democrats on the House Intelligence Committee have seen it,” a congressional source with knowledge of the memo said. (Snip) Congressional officials expect the classified memo to be made available to the public before the end of the month. In order to
Immigrants entering the United States illegally through the southern border are quietly being relocated to different parts of the country on commercial flights, high-ranking Homeland Security officials told Judicial Watch this week. In the last few days alone, groups of illegal aliens boarded planes at airports in Texas and Arizona accompanied by a taxpayer-funded government escort in civilian clothes to avoid drawing attention. The first flight originated at Valley International Airport in Harlingen, Texas and was bound for Minneapolis. (Snip) The illegal aliens wear red HHS wrist bands and receive “the gold glove treatment,” according to a veteran federal official,
According to Representative Dave Joyce (R-OH14) the House Intelligence Committee will hold a vote on the release of the four-page Nunes memo that reveals systemic corruption within the DOJ and FBI; including the unlawful use of FISA-702(16)(17) data searches which were part of an elaborate DOJ-FBI surveillance program on the political campaign of Donald Trump. (Tweet) Additionally, Chad Pergram reported that Chairman Devin Nunes met with Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte to discuss the best process to release the memo. There are generally two ways it could be done, the HPSCI vote is the most likely.As more people have become aware
Question: Do you think Donald Trump spends more time thinking about Hillary Clinton than Hillary Clinton spends thinking about Donald Trump? Sure does seem like it. The other day, President Trump was discussing Russia at a press conference with the prime minister of Norway, when he suddenly announced that Clinton “was not for a strong military and Hillary, my opponent, was for windmills, and she was for other types of energy that don’t have the same capacities at this moment certainly.” Yeah, it didn’t make any sense. But he really can’t seem to get past her. Recently while promoting tax
For the second time in less than a year, New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida, and this time, cops say, he threatened to sexually assault the arresting officer´s wife. Anderson, 24, who was arrested at around 2:15am for going 105 miles-per-hour in a 45 zone, was placed in the back of the police vehicle and ´stated that when he got out he was going to find (the officer´s) wife, f--k her and n-t in her eye,´ according to the the police report with the Broward County Sheriff´s Office. According to the Daily News, the police
There’s a ghost haunting Elizabeth Warren as she ramps up for a possible 2020 presidential bid and a reelection campaign in Massachusetts this year: her enduring and undocumented claims of Native American ancestry. Warren says now, as she has from the first days of her public life, that she based her assertions on family lore, on her reasonable trust in what she was told about her ancestry as a child. “I know who I am,” she said in a recent interview with the Globe. But that self-awareness may not be enough, as her political ambitions blossom.
The burn continues. What follows are 138 years of scientific records tracing the human transformation of Earth’s climate. The bold pink line up top represents 2017, the third-hottest on record. The only years to exceed it—2015 and 2016—occurred amid a powerful El Nino weather pattern that ripped heat from the Pacific Ocean into the atmosphere. In the absence of El Nino, the swelter of 2017 was unprecedented.
Comic book readers are apparently not fans of progressive politics—a fact no more evident in Marvel’s decision to cancel every single one of its comics that has been nominated by the LGBTQ advocacy group, GLAAD. In December, the publisher announced its decision to cancel many of its comics, citing poor sales. LGBTQ, feminist, and social justice-themed comics involving stories that revolved around Black Lives Matter, illegal immigration, and LGBTQ issues were among those to end up on the chopping block.
Comedian, and director of ´Get Out,´ Jordan Peele calls President Trump a racist in an upcoming interview airing Sunday. Peele, who is opening up to CBS´s Sunday Morning, says ´You know, the truth is the president is a racist, which is very sad,´ adding ´I´m disheartened by policies that are xenophobic and sexist … there are many strides backwards every day.´ The director who calls his film ´Get Out,´ a ´social thriller,´ which is getting Oscar buzz for it´s handling of race relations across America, also discussed the differences he says he sees when compared with former President Obama´s handling of race.
