Judge Neil Gorsuch Hearings!!

NeilGorsuch

I’ve been watching the Judge Neil Gorsuch hearings before the senate for his Supreme Court nomination and I must say I find myself very, very impressed with this man. He comes across like a very compassionate person, easy going, down to earth, soft spoken, very sincere, direct, fair yet tough and very firm when it comes to obeying the law. I like how he looks directly at his questioners on the senate who are really grilling him with hard questions and comes back at them very respectfully and to the point.

He displays that down home boyish Colorado western charm by tilting his head to the side with a smiling twinkle in his eyes and saying things like, “Gosh senator that was a long time ago,” and saying things like “Gosh Senator I was only applying the law as stated in that case,” He doesn’t seem to get rattled, but you can see the look of frustration and consternation from their questions in his facial expressions and rightly so.

Senator Dick Durbin seemed to go on and on in some of his questions and Gorsuch said to him, “Senator there are a lot of words in what you said and I would like to go back and answer them one by one.” Durbin seemed infatuated with questions about gays and the LGBT community. Gorsuch replied that, “Senator I judge each person as a human being and not associated with any group.” Durbin persisted on bringing up the LGBT group and you can see the look on Gorsuch’s face that seemed to be saying,” I just told you what I believe so where are you going with this?” I was saying the same thing too. Gorsuch repeated over and over that he judges each case individually and each person as an individual not associated with a group. Gorsuch also reminded Durbin that “I don’t make the law, I apply the law” and gave several examples of cases that backed him up. When asked about cases where Gorsuch voted against the majority of his fellow judges in a case Gorsuch said there are some cases you take home with you and think about them.” Gorsuch explained that being a lawyer is a very tough profession as there are a lot of suicides and bouts of depression and alcoholism with that profession. Gorsuch said he would have no problem ruling against the president who appointed him or either party which shows his true impartiality.

He has a remarkable memory when it comes to citing court cases he’s read in books and who was involved in them. Senator John Coryn was a bit nicer in his questioning and asked Gorsuch if he would be prejudiced for a case before hearing it and then work back to justify his decision. Gorsuch replied with a resounding “NO! and if any judge does that they don’t deserve to be a judge” as if annoyed with such a question. Cornyn said he agreed with him and was just asking to see how he would respond.

Judge Gotsuch shows he can be very serious and firm when opposed and very warm and light hearted when recalling stories about his clerking for Justice Byron White when he was questioned by Sen. Ted Cruz. Cruz thanked Gorsuch for his scholarly and erudite answers.

A hearing for a Supreme Court judge is very grueling and personal and can be a real roller coaster for the nominee as it goes on for several days all day long answering questions. I could never do it, but Judge Gorsuch is sailing through and doing fine.

 I think Neil Gorsuch is an excellent choice and the senate better confirm him. He’s the right man for the right job at the right time. He’s got my support for sure.

kong: Skull Island!!(Apocalypse Kong)

KongKong 5

Kong4

Konggrowling

kong8

Kong7

Kong3

Kong Skull Island is the latest rendition of the famous King Kong story. Let me preface this by saying when it comes to Kong I am a purist for the original 1933 movie which still holds up with the best today. I’ve seen it a gazillion times on TV  since I was a little kid and in the movies when they re-released it with added parts, read books on the making of it, gave a lecture once on it at my local library and have it on VHS and DVD. I’ve even seen all the remakes which I think sucked so when it comes to Kong you really have to impress me. This new one is so awesome and  impresses me beyond belief.

This is not your typical Kong in the jungle fighting dinosaurs and being taken to New York and shot down by planes. No here Kong is King alright and they never leave the island. John Goodman is a scientist who has pics of an island where planes and ships have disappeared over the South Pacific. He suspects something big is there and convinces the military to give him a crew to go there headed by Samuel Jackson.

The story takes place at the end of the Vietnam War so there are many songs from that era in the sound track. The reason I call it Apocalypse Kong is because there are scenes of helicopters flying over jungle areas while these songs are playing just like in the Vietnam War film Apocalypse Now.

There are two women along one who is a photo journalist Brie Larson as Mason Weaver and another Vietnamese assistant Tian Jing as San. They enlist the aid of a tough former British Army  captain James Conrad who is an excellent tracker (Tom Hiddleson,  Loki of The Avengers) in a local bar to go with them after they pay him a huge sum of money.

When they arrive on the Island they meet a fellow named  Hank Marlow who has been living there since the end of WW11 when his plane crashed and was shot down. He is friends with the natives and he warns them about monsters on the Island.

No sooner are they on the island when they encounter Kong who destroys Jackson’s men in their helicopters with his bare hands. Jackson is furious and wants to kill Kong from then on.

There are lots of Monsters like I’ve never seen before and hard to describe  only to say they are like giant lizards with a three pronged tongue. One monster is like those stick bugs you see that look just like a stick. When a soldier sits on what he thinks is a log he is shocked when it moves and it is this giant huge, humongous,camouflaged stick lizard which gobbles him up. Yes there are lots of close ups of the open jaws of these creatures. There is a giant spider disguised as a forest that is very terrifying and giant water buffalos that are cool to watch.

One night when James and Mason are off alone they surprise Kong and gently go up to him and touch his face. From then on they decide to save him along with the help of their WW11 buddy.

The natives here are great to look at and look like a real ancient lost tribe that has been around for centuries. They don’t speak like in the original kong.

Kong,Skull Island doesn’t even try to go the “white woman on Empire State Building” path but instead offers a wild, violent and funny survival monster movie with lots of monsters, action and carnage. The actors are great and create interesting characters, especially John C. Reilly as the stranded WW11 vet rules every scene he’s in. The film doesn’t even try to be more than a huge monster mash, there are few subtle tones, but plenty of great effects, creepy beasts and locations.

The fight scenes between Kong and the lizards are exciting and breath taking. The computer graphics are the most real I’ve seen and in 3-D it was the best 3-D I’ve seen so far. This Kong certainly rivals the original and is the Kong for this time. Check it out if you have the chance. If you do see it, stay until after the closing credits for an added bonus of what is to come. You can see the exciting trailers I have below to get an idea.

To All You Snowflakes Protesting Trump’s Temporary Travel Ban!!!

Muslim+Protest

protest2travel ban protesoteors2

islamicprotestors

travel ban protestors

To all you snowflake protestors who are against Trump’s temporary travel ban do you realize what you are protesting or is it just an excuse to go out in the streets and party? Are you really that naive? His ban is only on seven of the most deadly Islamic  countries in the world that want to destroy us which was started by your guy Obama. Why weren’t you protesting then? Trump’s revised plan allows people with a green card to come in here or people with relatives to come in here legally. It’s just a temporary three month halt so we can vet people from these countries more closely.  

 Alan Dershowitz said on Fox News this morning that because court rulings against President Trump‘s travel ban are bringing up his own past rhetoric, the argument is basically, “If Obama had issued the very same order with the same words it would be constitutional, but if Trump issues it it’s unconstitutional.” http://www.mediaite.com/tv/dershowitz-courts-essentially-saying-if-obama-issued-trump-travel-ban-it-would-be-constitutional/

 More than 2,000 criminal non-citizens, including many here illegally, are released from prison every year onto the streets of American cities.

Americans like Casey Chadwick, 25, have  paid with their lives. She was stabbed to death outside her apartment in Norwich, Connecticut, by an illegal criminal alien from Haiti who had already served 17 years in prison for attempted murder. ICE had tried to deport him several times but Haiti would not accept him.

The problem is that 23 countries will not take back their criminal migrants, according to a DHS report cited by Sen. Chuck Grassley, chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. The government has not named all 23 uncooperative nations but WND has been able to identify 13 of them.

The five worst are Cuba, China, Somalia, India and Ghana.

Others on the list include:

  • Iraq
  • Iran
  • Afghanistan
  • Libya
  • Algeria
  • Vietnam
  • Haiti
  • Zimbabwe

The majority of the countries on the list are either communist or Islamic.

Three of the countries – Somalia, Iran and Libya – are on President Trump’s list of terrorist-sponsoring countries from which he wants to ban travel into the U.S. for 90 days while better vetting programs can be developed. His executive order on the temporary travel ban is being held up by federal district judges in Hawaii and Maryland.

The criminals include murderers, rapists and child molesters.

Fair is fair right?  23 countries refuse to take back criminal aliens

Millions upon millions of Muslims are coming into this country every year. If you study this migration not only here, but in all western countries you will discover that the majority are all men between the ages of 14 and 50. This is not so much immigration and escaping from repression, but an invasion of Islam throughout the world for their goal of world domination. Islam does not assimilate and these migrants coming here are bringing their culture with them instead of adopting to  ours.  When Muslims are in the minority they are your best friend, co-workers and good neighbors, but once they get in the majority things change. If you oppose them they call you racist and anti-semitic.  They have learned to use our ways against us. Not all Muslims are terrorists and I have known some very understanding and peaceful Muslims, but all terrorists have been Muslims both here and in Europe. Many peaceful Muslims understand they should speak out against these radicals, but are in fear that they will be killed or family members overseas will be killed because if you speak against Islam it is certain death.

When asked about what they want to see many of these Muslim migrants say  they  want Sharia law for here. We came close to having a Muslim government under Obama which is what I believe he wanted and still wants for this country.

For you snowflake protestors who are against Trump’s temporary   travel ban do you know what Sharia Law is?

Under Sharia law women can’t drive, women can’t be seen out in public without a member of their family usually a male, women can’t work, can’t go to school and are told how to dress. The children of a Muslim family are controlled by the father and his religion. Gays and lesbians are killed either by hanging or thrown off of  roof tops. Christians and Jews are persecuted.

If a member of a Muslim family deviates from their religion they are killed in what is known as an honor killing.  Our own FBI estimates there are at least 25 honor killings a year in this country alone. Recently a father ran his daughter and girlfriend over with his car because she was getting too westernized then fled the country. Her friend survived. Another father shot his 28 year old daughter while she slept because  she was planning a trip across country with two of her non-Islamic friends. In the Islamic world, female rape victims are killed or thrown in prison, girls and women are victims of honor killings, female genital mutilation and acid attacks, alleged adulterers are stoned to death and gay people are executed.

In what world is that not evidence of an intolerant belief system?

 It is clearly, by all objective standards, the most violent and intolerant belief system on the planet and totally incompatible with western civilization. Is this what you snowflake protestors want to see happen here?

 Recently Ann Coulter appeared on Sean Hannity’s show and had this to say about the current migrant crisis in Europe and what we can expect here : Among the reasons for concern according to Coulter was what she perceived to be the “difficult time” these migrants were having with “learning not to rape women.”

“[W]hy can’t we learn from Western Europe? Just a few weeks ago, German intelligence reports that 1,000 German residents have gone to fight with ISIS. Hundreds of them have come back to Germany. What does Merkel do? She is setting them up with welfare because if they don’t have a lot of welfare, that could radicalize them if they don’t have welfare. Why don’t we believe what these migrants say? They come to countries. They rape women. They’re having a very difficult time learning not to rape women, even if they’re infidel whores and have short skirts. What other immigrant group could not stop itself from raping masses of women? They march around saying you’re going to live under Sharia law. They commit terrorist acts. It’s right in front of our eyes.

And can you imagine, what Angela Merkel has done is spreading throughout Europe, but just in Germany alone, combining German military discipline with Islamic ideology? It is terrifying what we are up against. Why would you do that in this country? And meanwhile, we keep trying to be distracted with Russia, Russia, Russia. Russia is probably one of our better allies in the fight against Islam. They’ve been dealing with these Islamic terrorists for centuries now. And you remember, they are the ones who warned American about the Tsarnaev family that blew up the Boston Marathon. But no, our government officials just wouldn’t listen. Let’s just worry about Russia — how long ago did Reagan win the Cold War? It’s over.”

Below is a video by a Muslim woman cleric who says it is OK to rape a woman if they are not of the Muslim religion to humiliate them and the man of the house is allowed to have several wives as slaves along with his own wife. This is seventh century thinking.  It is a pretty sickening belief. Is this what you protestors want? Be careful what you wish for. Things are not always what they seem LiveLeak.com – Islam Female cleric says Rape non-muslims in order to humiliate.

Here is another video showing Muslim demographics throughout the world and fast becoming a Muslim state here. While western civilization averages two or three offspring per family, the average Muslim family is eight. In the Islamic countries they are told there are blonde western women who are waiting to have children for Allah.. Muslim Demographics – YouTube

Federal judges in Hawaii and Maryland have put President Donald Trump’s revised travel ban on hold, just hours before it was supposed to go into effect.

Hawaii’s federal judge, Derrick Watson made the ruling following arguments that the executive order discriminates based on nationality. 

Trump called the judge’s move an “unprecedented judicial overreach” that “makes us look weak” and made it clear he won’t be backing down.

“We are going to fight this terrible ruling,” said Trump Wednesday night at the Municipal Auditorium in Nashville, Tenn. “We are going to take our case as far as it needs to go, including all the way up to the Supreme Court. We are going to win. We are going to keep our citizens safe — and, regardless, we are going to keep our citizens safe.” Two More Judges Rule Against Trump’s Travel Ban

Trump Vs.Obama’s Shadow Government. Promises Made,Promises kept!!!

                   smilingtrump

When Trump became president he promised a lot of great things for this country and he is delivering and making good on his promises, but the media, and RINOs in there republican party are resisting him. Even with all that resistance Trump is still moving forward. So far he has:

  • Gotten rid of the Trans Pacific Partnership that would have sent jobs overseas.
  • Taken the fine out of Obamcare if you don’t have it.
  • Started building up the military.
  • Allowed funds for the Dakota and Keystone pipeline that will create jobs.
  • Started funding for the wall and getting contractors ready.
  • Working on a healthcare reform package that is affordable and less restrictive.
  • Looking into tax reform for everyone.
  • Looking into fair immigration policy.
  • Stopped funding sanctuary cities.
  • Put a hiring freeze on federal employees.
  • Selected Neil Gorsuch for the Supreme Court, a constitutionalist and he’s just beginning. Donald Trump’s Top 10 Accomplishments in His First Month in Office – John Hawk

 Now Obama and his minions are beside themselves and are resisting every move he makes. Obama wanted to destroy America and is upset that he didn’t complete that so he is organizing like the radical community organizer he once was and running a shadow government from his new home in Washington to oppose Trump and salvage his legacy either by impeaching Trump or throwing him out all together by forcing him to resign. He is a dangerous person and has George Soros backing him with his billions as he goals for his New World Order.

Rep. Mike Kelly (R-Pa.) alleged during a private speech that former President Barack Obama is living in Washington to run a secret operation to take down President Trump.

“President Obama himself said he was going to stay in Washington until his daughter graduated,” Kelly said at the event in remarks caught on video.

“I think we ought to pitch in to let him go someplace else because he’s only there for one purpose and one purpose only, and that is to run a shadow government that is going to totally upset the new agenda.”

But Kelly’s office said in a statement Friday that the lawmaker doesn’t think Obama is “personally” running a shadow government.

“Because of the extraordinary interest in Rep. Kelly’s remarks, it is worth clarifying that Rep. Kelly does not believe that President Obama is personally operating a shadow government,” his office said in the statement. “He does believe it would be helpful to the new administration if the former president would personally call for an end to all leaks and obstruction by personnel from his administration who currently serve in the Executive Branch under President Trump.” 

The statement also noted the Kelly’s remarks were delivered to a private audience of Republicans and that he was “sharing the frustration of everyone in the room over how they believe certain Obama administration holdovers within the federal bureaucracy are attempting to upset President Trump’s agenda.”

He was speaking at the Mercer County Republican Party’s annual Lincoln Day dinner.

For you never Trumpers  who wanted Hillary in so bad I have a few facts for you. If you are a small business owner are you willing to pay a 43% tax on your business? If you are expecting an inheritance are you willing to pay a 61% death tax? Are you for open borders and having Canada, the United States and Mexico be one big country? Because these are all things Hillary wanted as does Obama and Soros. As the saying goes, be careful what you wish for you just might get it and then you’ll be sorry.

Sun Records-The Mini Series On CMT!!!

            Sun records

The CMT channel is currently showing a mini series of Sam Philips and his Sun records which launched the careers of Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and many others. It stated in late February and airs Thursday night at 10 p.m..

Set in Memphis during the tumultuous early days of the civil rights movement, Sun Records tells the untold story of nothing less than the birth of rock ‘n’ roll. Guided by Sam Phillips, young musicians like Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis combined the styles of hillbilly country with the 1950s R&B sound created by artists like Muddy Waters, B.B. King, Fats Domino and Ike Turner, and changed the course of music forever. The series chronicles these young artists’ often jarring and sudden meteoric rise to fame in the face of sweeping political change and social unrest.

The producers and directors of this show go to great lengths to make this series as real as possible with having everyone look like the actual person and creating the feel of the time. My wife and I check on our computers as new characters are revealed and so far everything is accurate. Out of all the artists involved only Jerry Lee Lewis is still alive at 81 years old. He got married for the seventh time in 2012. There is a cute scene where Jerry and his cousin Jimmy Swaggert who became a preacher are in a church with Jerry playing his fast piano keys rhythm and Jimmy giving a sermon until a minister comes in and throws them out.

I think the young Elvis is a dead ringer for how Elvis looked at the time right down to the shape of his head, expressions and mannerisms. The couple portraying Elvis’ parents are just like his real parents too.  His mother being short, dark haired and portly and his father being tall and lanky with wavy hair. When Elvis stops in a colored church to hear the songs the congregation is singing, his parents are furious he attended a black church and grounded him. Elvis sits in his room strumming his guitar trying to write a song and starts with “Are you lonesome tonite”

Col. Tom parker who was Elvis manager is a good character too and looks like the real Col. Tom Parker. They portray him as a heavy set, fast talking, cigar smoking, conniving, manipulating, anything for a buck promoter who stiffs his clients out of their rightful earnings for himself which he was and did. When he goes to the  advertisers to promote his new find, Eddie Arnold, he tells them “You can turn on any radio channel and you will hear  them playing him” What Parker did was go to various radio channels and tell them to play Arnold at a certain time. When he was before the advertising agency he put the radio on at the exact time and they were playing him on every channel.

Sam Phillips is a very shrewd and ambitious guy very intent on creating his record company. He is married, but has an affair with his assistant, but his wife seems to be Ok with that after he explains things to her and confesses that he still loves her and he stayed married to her his biography says. His wife and assistant became good friends

In last week’s episode Ike Turner and his band come to see Sam and since this is the deep south in 1950’s Tennessee they are met with racial epithets by two locals. Sam comes to their rescue. When they audition for him they also sing. Sam tells Ike. “Ike you’re a fantastic piano player, but you can’t sing for crap.”He tells each of the band members to try their part at singing. They are all terrible until the sax player steps fourth and sings a sound that is a joy to Sam’s ears. When he asks the sax player his name, he replies, “Jackie Wilson.”Sam signs them up with Ike playing piano and Jackie singing. He calls them The Delta Cats This is a great series and well acted and extremely well done and captures the mood of the period perfectly.

Check this series out if you remember these stars and Sun records like I did. You can catch them on Demand if you have it or watch them online in the link below.

Logan: A Film Review!!

                                               LaurainLogan

Logan3  Logan2

Logan is the latest and last chapter in the Wolverine series about Mutant men, women and children put out by Marvel the comic book franchise now making movies based on their characters. Logan is the fierce, dark, brooding, battling wolf like character with extended blades that shoot out of his knuckles to do battle. He is a loner and has no memory how he got that way. Logan is played with intensity and powerful characterization by Hugh Jackman and is the favorite of X-Men fans. The  X-men  are a band of mutants with extraordinary powers headed by  Charles Xavier (Patrick Stewart) who is a mutant himself with mental powers.

It is 2029, and most of mutantkind has died out. Logan/Wolverine (Jackman), now almost 200-years-old, lays low as a limo driver in El Paso, Texas. The adamantium with which his bones were laced is poisoning him from the inside out, and his powers are waning. Logan makes medicine runs for Charles Xavier/Professor X (Stewart), a now-senile nonagenarian who is cared for by the albino tracker Caliban (Merchant). Logan finds himself in danger upon encountering Laura Kinney/X-23 (Keen), a young girl who was cloned from him and bred as a super-soldier by the evil scientist Zander Rice (Grant). Rice sends the Reavers, a cybernetic mercenary army led by Donald Pierce (Holbrook), after Logan, Charles and Laura. The makeshift family unit must traverse the United States to make it to Eden, a fabled oasis for mutants in Canada.

Laura is a very troubled and brooding young mutant who has escaped with the help of a nurse from the laboratory that is cloning children without a conscience with super powers as potential future soldiers.  Laura has the same qualities as Logan with the extended blades since she was cloned from his DNA at the laboratory. The nurse turns Laura over to Logan with a video exposing the lab’s plans before she is killed off by the men from the laboratory who want to find Laura and get her back to control her.  Logan takes Laura reluctantly and the two continue on their search for the fable oasis called Eden for mutants supposedly in Canada. Laura is quite the fierce fighter herself and is capable of much damage herself when provoked. She and Logan eventually do bond. Meanwhile the lab has stopped with children and experimenting on humans and have one super villain with blades like Logan. There is quite a duel to the death between the two steel clawed mutants.

 One would argue that if any superhero deserved an R-rated movie of his own, it would be one with metal claws extending from his knuckles, and who frequently flies into a ‘berserker rage’. Make no bones about it: Logan is brutal. Dismemberments, impalements and arterial spray abound. Hugh Jackman has been playing Logan for 17 years now and feels its time to turn it in.

 Critics are calling Logan the best super hero movie around and I agree. They are impressed with the script: It’s gritty, violent, and balances the intense action sequences expected from a super hero movie with the quiet drama expected from a completely different one. Dafne keene is excellent as the brooding, but fierce 11 year old Laura that can really pack a wallop.  She’s an 11-year-old girl equipped with all the volatility, instability, mood swings, shadows and potential violence of Logan. Anyone would be brooding if you were this mutant created in a lab and not knowing how you got that way. Logan is well worth it the best yet. Be sure to check it out at  theater  near you. Check out these exciting trailers.

A Fond Farewell to Ringling Brothers Circus: The Greatest Show On Earth!!

circus  RinglingBros.logo

globeofDeath

lions and tigers

Ever since I was a little kid I have been attending the Ringling Bros. Barnum and Baily circus with either my parents or aunt and Uncle. For the past few years now my wife, sis-in-law and I have been taking our nephew who is now 13 to see it. This year is the last year as Ringling Bros. management has announced they are shutting down for good due to failing ticket sales and reports of mistreatment of their animals. We saw it at the Prudential Center in Newark, N.J and it was a sold out performance.

This year’s show was the best I’ve ever seen and should be for their final swan song. It has an outer space sci-fi theme which lends itself to brightly colored costumes, dazzling special effects galore and nonstop pulse beating action. As soon as one act is ending the next is starting and the music is fast and pulsating.

The Intergalactic Circus Queen, Queen Tatiana, a legendary horseback rider and acrobat is driven by desire to outshine the Greatest Show on earth and plots to banish the circus stars on earth and banish them away to far away planets.

The circus opened with a balancing act with acrobats dressed as astronauts in white suits, back pack and black visor. They moved slowly like they were without gravity and walked atop the giant oval shaped wheel that turned and did balancing acts with a bicycle and sitting on top of one another’s shoulders while the wheel turned. As they did this, large covered balls hanging from the ceilings moved up and down finally their covers dropped revealing sexy women inside twirling around with colored lights lit around them. Very impressive and beautiful.

There were various clown acts that were supposed to be the Queen’s servants and captured acts. The ringmaster was from earth and was in charge of getting the acts back which he does. He is the same ringmaster they’ve had for the past several years now. They had lions and tigers, horseback  riding acts, a cute dog act, and my favorite “Globe of death” where eight motorcycle riders all ride around the globe upside down and around the sides at lightning speed without bumping into each other. They also had a basketball game featuring black players on unicycles playing against each other and passing the ball between them and dunking it in the baskets. As soon as one fell off they got right back on again no problem. It was like the Harlem Globe Trotters on unicycles.

I marveled at the spectacular crew they had that would set up for one act while the other was distracting you. I was so entranced by the cute dog act that I failed to see a whole cage being set up with a runner for the lions and tigers to go into the cage with. They also had skaters on a special floor covering they put down who also did tumbling acts while they skated.

The whole show was two hours of non-stop action with a fifteen minute break. It was a grand finale of a show and a great send off to remember them by. The Prudential Center was sold out so maybe if ticket sales increase they may come back. Until then it was a fond farewell for the Greatest Show on Earth.
