    EXCLUSIVE: New book reveals how KGB operation seeded Muslim countries with anti-American, anti-Jewish propaganda during the 1970s, laying the groundwork for Islamist terrorism against U.S. and Israel

    The highest-ranking Soviet-bloc intelligence officer ever to defect to the West claims in a new book that anti-American Islamic terrorism had its roots in a secret 1970s-era KGB plot to harm but the United States and Israel by seeding Muslim countries with carefully targeted propaganda.

    Can We Keep Silent in a World Gone Mad?

    Andrew Klavan is an author, screenwriter, and host of The Andrew Klavan Show. He is also a contributing editor to the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal, for which he travelled as an embed reporter with American troops in Afghanistan. A five-time nominee and two-time winner of the Mystery Writers of America’s Edgar Award and a recipient of the Thumping Good Read Award, Mr. Klavan has written for numerous publications, including The Wall Street Journal, The Washington Post, and The New York Times. He is the author of numerous novels, including Nightmare City, the Homelanders series, the Mindwar trilogy, Don’t Say a Word, True Crime—which was made into a film by Clint Eastwood—and, most recently, Another Kingdom. His non-fiction writings include a memoir of his religious journey, The Great Good Thing: A Secular Jew Comes to Faith in Christ and a book of satire, The Leftese Dictionary. He has written a number of screenplays, including A Shock to the System, which starred Michael Caine, and Gosnell: The Trial of America’s Biggest Serial Killer, starring Dean Cain.

    Hillsdale College is an independent institution of higher learning founded in 1844 by men and women “grateful to God for the inestimable blessings” resulting from civil and religious liberty and “believing that the diffusion of learning is essential to the perpetuity of these blessings.” It pursues the stated object of the founders: “to furnish all persons who wish, irrespective of nation, color, or sex, a literary, scientific, [and] theological education” outstanding among American colleges “and to combine with this such moral and social instruction as will best develop the minds and improve the hearts of its pupils.” As a nonsectarian Christian institution, Hillsdale College maintains “by precept and example” the immemorial teachings and practices of the Christian faith.

    The College also considers itself a trustee of our Western philosophical and theological inheritance tracing to Athens and Jerusalem, a heritage finding its clearest expression in the American experiment of self-government under law.


    1. About 20 years ago, the PBS program The American Experience showed a documentary about the Hoover Dam. It’s definitely worth watching as it not only explains the historical context, but it includes interviews with people who either worked on it or lived in the area.

      If I remember correctly, the reason it was re-named Hoover Dam from its original Boulder Dam, was because Hoover was Interior Secretary when the project was approved. However, construction began after his term as President was over and, according to one worker, that re-naming didn’t go over well as Hoover hadn’t been particularly popular. He was called some unprintable names.

      1. The dam’s original purpose was to control the Colorado River, which overflowed its banks on occasion. It became a hydroelectric development as a way of paying for itself by selling the electricity that was generated, one beneficiary being the city of Las Vegas, which, before then, had been a sleepy railway town.

        The dam was built during the Depression, so jobs there were highly prized. There were, however, other benefits as well. For example, the construction workers ate well. One interviewee spoke of all the sandwiches he was able, and allowed, to cram into his lunchbox. In addition, workers with families were able to live in the ramshackle town that was built near the site and, for many of them, it was their first home.

        It also benefited several engineering firms, such as Bechtel. They formed a consortium known as the Six Companies, and it established their reputations for being able to undertake large, and seemingly impossible, projects. A few years later that expertise and experience was used for the Manhattan Project.

          1. I’ve never been to Nevada; The idea of going to “Vegas” holds little or no charm.

            But the Hoover Dam has been on my list of “to do” visits for years.

          1. John Batchelor interviewed the author about that book. That interview appears on the RSS feed for JB’s show from time to time.

        1. Seems a good opportunity to mention the builder of Ontario’s Abatibi dam, Harry McLean. Harry was a larger than life character, but he is not that well known. He built railroads, even self funded and built an Alaska airport for bombers on a personal request from Roosevelt who could not get Congressional permission and knew it would be needed. Harry saved hundreds of people in the Halifax explosion. He was building a railroad and while chaos reigned, he had men and knew how to organize a rescue effort. When someone wanted something built that every one said was impossible, they called Harry, who usually managed to build things in record time. At the time, he was also famous for throwing money out of hotel windows. An amazing character who should be better known. https://books.google.ca/books?id=GbvECdC60GAC&pg=PA99&lpg=PA99&dq=harry+mclean+abitibi+dam&source=bl&ots=gZFc8XLVcS&sig=ACfU3U0tNRiFhVwtEVIUNL97oe1tEIG6XA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwj8obbE3oTjAhXNK80KHTWyCSoQ6AEwCHoECAkQAQ#v=onepage&q=harry mclean abitibi dam&f=false

  3. June 25, 1968. On this day in Canadian history, Pierre Elliot Trudeau was elected to the PMO in Ottawa.

    Interesting to note that 24 hours earlier, at the Saint Jean Baptiste day celebrations in Montreal, rioters were throwing stones at him and chanting ”Au Poteau.” (To the stake.)


    PS: I was quite surprised to see that even in the heat of Trudeaumania, Saskatchewan and Alberta had Progressive Conservative majority representation.

    1. Pierre Trudeau’s editorials at a Montreal journal, “Cité Libre,” was where he created those enemies.


      It wouldn’t surprise me if we found out today that this was a put on and all rigged. It is too coincidental that the parade and the crowning were just one day apart. Publicity stunts were and still are, all the rage.

      I was living in Montreal then and thought so too when the English News Broadcasts touched upon this. The French papers and Francophones were raging and many Anglos were starting to no longer feel at home in their home province. It led to a great diaspora by the mid to late 70s. I was one of them. I bet the pûr laines are now wondering why they were so harsh, given the immigration problems they now have. Legault can’t be happy but he is putting on a good front. But that’s another story.

    2. When PET was elected, Alberta had a Socred provincial government. However, it enthusiastically sent Liberals to Ottawa as MPs. Many of them were chucked out 4 years later.

      1. I think the Alberta liberals that went to Ottawa in that day might best be described as ‘classical ‘ not the progressive liberal we see today.

        After years of ‘development’ pet decided that the best way to bring about change to the country was from the inside. Peeaire became a liberal, got elected,became PM and forever changed Canada.

    3. Whatever else you might think of Trudeau père, he was not intimidated by mouthy separatist louts and yahoos.

      1. No he wasn’t…his answer out west was to put some 50,000 Albertans out of work with his BS NEP….self included. DEAD..?? Danced a jig the day I heard it. I was overjoyed to see that Communist filth expire. Will react in identical manner when that Filthy . Perverted Islamic loving POS drip from his dick dies too…preferrbly MUCH sooner than later.

        The past 4 years have been a bitch to find work in Alberta. 75% of that due to utter BS from a Federal govt (harper incl.). We have lost all control of our own Resources…while Pravda North + other assorted Leftist Cohorts have convinced the ROC that we are simply whiners.

        Separation was a sentiment that started here in 1980…and those of us who lived through that will NEVER Fkn EVER forget. It cost thousands their livlihoods & homes. If there ever was a time to move forward on that, its NOW.

        So forget your Referendum on Equalization JASON KENNEY, and let’s get to the meat of the matter: A CLEAR QUESTION


        1. I’ll bet you feel so much better now after getting that inchoate rant off your chest!

      2. …”Trudeau père, he was not intimidated by mouthy separatist louts and yahoos.”

        Correct, because likely, they were his co- conspirators.
        As I wrote in the above reply comment @ Georges 12:56,
        (the more I think about the more) I believe it was all a PET and friends plot to extort more for Quebec. Maurice Duplessis was too conservative for communist Pierre.

        Remember the famous, “JUST WATCH ME” quip PET told a reporter? In retrospect, it wasn’t convincing enough, imo.

        To qualify the latter, I might add, that the Canadian troops in the streets were placed as armed guards. When the separatists were caught they all were sent on vacation to sunny Cuba, as you well know. (Any wonder why history is not taught in school now?)

        So, today, when we see what boy Trudeau is foisting on us with the Fussy Liberal Green hoax, and the trashing of Canada, is it any wonder? No, it is more of the same commie trash.

        1. “I believe it was all a PET and friends plot to extort more for Quebec.”

          Careful about going down the conspiracy-theory road.

          It’s always really hard to find your way back from there, as many of the commenters here at SDA prove daily.

          1. “Careful about going down the conspiracy-theory road.
            It’s always really hard to find your way back from there, as many of the commenters here at SDA prove daily.”

            Please, Sir, what do you mean by that statement?
            Do explain yourself.

    1. Of course Trudeau’s new friend will be joining Justin and the Liberal Team at the next local mosque photo op.

    1. Illustrating PERFECTLY why in a NEW Sovereign Country in the WEST, there ABSOLUTELY MUST be Garanteed Property Rights and the Inalienable RIGHT to defend said property or person thereon.

      Whats happening there is utter THEFT by some 2 bit Public apparatchik.

      1. The worst part? There are people and organizations like the AMA (which sure as hell is NOT on the side of anyone driving a motor vehicle) who actually want this! How anyone can defend the policy of making police effectively the judge and executioner as well is beyond comprehension.

  4. The backlash begins. Some excerpts from Cairns News, North Queensland.

    Japan has always refused Muslims to live permanent in their country and cannot own any real estate or any type of business, and have banned any worship of Islam.

    Record number of Muslims deported from Norway as a way of fighting crime. Since these Muslim criminals have been deported, crime has dropped by a staggering 72%.

    A Chinese court sends 22 Muslim Imams to jail for 16 to 20 years for spreading Islam hatred, and have executed eighteen Jihadists.

    The Polish Defence League issues a warning to Muslims. 16 States Have All Introduced Legislation to Ban Shariah Law.

    Dutch MP’s called for removal of all mosques in the Netherlands. One Member of the Dutch Parliament said: “We want to clean Netherlands of Islam”.


    1. @ Angel
      I was wondering how long that would take….??
      Very Good to see..!!

      Not so sure we will ever see that here….far too many still walking about with their Leftist Indoctrinated eyes wide Shut…and a PM openly TREASONOUS in his love of ISLAM, ISIS along with his inbred, genetic distaste for our Military.

    2. Won’t be happening here anytime soon. Anyone suggesting these solutions in Canada might well find themselves in a courtroom.

    3. Easy to do in Japan (a homogeneous society).

      No surprise in the Netherlands, they have crossed over the tipping point where it is impossible to ignore the inherent conflicts between cultures, and it only makes sense that it be the home culture that is defended, as those with alien cultures can go practice them where they are not alien cultures.

      Canada will not react until it reaches the same state. We are a peace loving democracy, which means we will inevitably do too little too late.

      1. Former German Intelligence Boss Demands Investigation into Merkel’s Migrant Crisis Policy

        he former president of the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV) said that due to the significant consequences of mass migration in Germany today and going forward, those who made the policies in 2015 must be held to account for any mistakes made, Nordkurier reports.

        He is not the first to call for such an inquiry. Both the libertarian Free Democrats (FDP) and the populist Alternative for Germany (AfD) have made similar requests but both have been rejected.


  5. Managerial elites,

    Of Two Minds

    The sole output of America’s managerial elite is self-serving hubris. The Deep State can’t be fired, nor does it ever stand for election. As systems become more complex, the need for a professional class to manage the overwhelming complexity grows. “Stakeholders” multiply in endless profusion, dooming every project to a glacial process that increases the sums paid to manage the glacial process and pushes the final cost to the moon. The managerial elite always has one answer for every problem: give us more money. The system is broken, and the managerial elite will keep it broken because it serves their interests to keep it broken.


  6. Jealous Masters,

    Liberty’s Torch

    – Longevity in power has produced in the Deep State the attitude characteristic of masters: the conviction that they alone are entitled to rule, and that no one may legitimately stand against them. That’s how the Deep State came to be the implacable enemy we face today. The progressive ideology, inculcated in the bureaucracies from their inception by the presidents who oversaw their creation, causes the Deep State to be aligned with the Democrat Party. That ideology promotes unopposable power in the State. This is a condition the Democrats approve. They hope to use it to maintain their party’s grip on high office.


  7. MP Cooper threatens to sue The Hill Times over column on House Justice Committee exchange; denies reading from Christchurch shooter’s manifesto

    A law firm hired by Mr. Cooper (St. Albert-Edmonton, Alta.) notified The Hill Times on June 12 that, “legal action is now being contemplated” over the column by human rights activist Farheed Khan that ran online on June 7 in The Hill Times with the headline, “Scheer’s speech on diversity doesn’t match his actions.”

    The law firm, Alberta’s Guardian Law Group, said Mr. Khan’s column had defamed Mr. Cooper under Alberta law by saying Mr. Cooper had a “hostile and bigoted” reaction to Alberta Muslim Public Affairs Council president Faisal Khan Suri, when Mr. Suri testified in front of the House Justice Committee on May 28.

    The letter also said Mr. Khan’s column in The Hill Times had defamed Mr. Cooper by saying that he had made a “bigoted statement” during the committee meeting. The column did not identify a specific statement by Mr. Cooper.

  8. Bombardier sells regional jet business to Japanese firm Mitsubishi

    MONTREAL — Bombardier Inc. has signed a deal to sell its regional jet program to Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd.

    Under the deal, Mitsubishi will pay US$550 million in cash and assume liabilities totalling about US$200 million.

    The Japanese company will acquire the maintenance, support, refurbishment, marketing and sales activities for the CRJ Series aircraft.

    The agreement includes the related services and support network located in Montreal and Toronto and its service centres in Bridgeport, WVa., and Tucson, Ariz.


    1. Mitsubishi heavy industries were the original manufacturer of the wings to begin with, I worked with a guy who was over in Japan overseeing the construction. It looks like a easy way for Mitsubishi to get into the jet market, by buying an established company, they can get a product to market faster than a ground up design and build. This sort of tactic has been going on in the aircraft world for a long time..

  9. OTTAWA — Many Ontarians received an automated text message over the weekend, asking if they agree that the carbon tax must be scrapped.

    Who’s behind the campaign and what they plan to do with the responses is a mystery — and could remain so.

    The message purports to be from “Sue” from a heretofore unknown group called Ontario Strong.

    A group by that name does have a website, but it appears to be a work in progress that imparts little information other than a brief mission statement that exhorts people to “stand up for Ontario and be proud of the place we call home.”

    The text message appears to be an attempt to identify voters who are opposed to the carbon tax imposed by the federal Liberals, presumably so they can be targeted during the election campaign this fall.

  10. Quebec’s ban on religious symbols will only embolden the far right

    Premier François Legault claims that, in passing the bill, his party has closed the book on a more than decade-long debate over secularism in Quebec. But the evidence from France suggests the opposite: that the law risks opening the door to even more troubling erosions of minorities’ religious rights.


    1. Only pious Christians and Jews will be affected by Quebec’s new laws.

      If the Muslims felt the least bit threatened by the new law, they’d be blowing themselves up in the Montreal metro every day.

  11. It’s not about textbook theories and political wrangling. There is fallout from bad policy decisions. The article is about Germany. Same can be said of Canada. Mountains of money printing on the cheap can make any economy look good on the surface and politicians gloat how good things are while covering up the structural problems.


    ” With Germany the economic locomotive of the euro area, there may not be much reason to be optimistic. The country’s economic problems appear to be structural, due to high taxes, excessive government spending, failed energy policies and other regulatory constraints.””

    On energy: “Estimated annual subsidies of nearly 15 to 40 billion Euros, according to Clean Energy Wire, may be required to implement this policy failure. While industrial users of electricity have their consumption subsidized, it may not be enough to fully offset the price increases wrought by the replacement of nuclear power by more expensive alternatives, renewables in particular.”

    On Renewables: “Because they work only when the wind blows or the sun shines, their contribution to energy production is highly variable. The unreliability of renewables has meant that an equal capacity of conventional coal and gas power plants had to be built, effectively doubling the amount of capital needed to produce a given amount of electricity and boosting electricity costs.”

  12. Will our Presstitute Media acknowledge this poll?

    Nearly two-thirds (64%) Canadians polled say politicians cannot be trusted, and one-third (32%) believe they are primarily motivated by “personal gain” rather than a genuine desire to serve their communities.

    Public dissatisfaction with elected officials is most prevalent when discussing federal government. Whereas those who view municipal candidates positively (42%) outnumber those who view them negatively (14%) by a three-to-one margin, the Canadian public is broadly split when it comes to federal candidates.

    Moreover, four-in-ten Canadians (38%) feel the quality of federal candidates in their area has worsened in the past five to 10 years, considerably higher than the proportions who say the same of provincial (29%) and municipal (24%) candidates.

    More Key Findings:

    Two-thirds (67%) of Canadians believe it is an advantage for candidates to have previous work experience outside of politics

    Across all questions canvassed in this survey, political preferences appear to be a strong driver of views. Potential Conservatives are twice as likely as potential New Democrats (40% vs. 21%) and three times more likely than potential Liberals (13%) to say politicians primarily run for office for “personal gain”

    Canadians are divided (44% agree vs. 47% disagree) on whether women and visible minorities are at a disadvantage when running for office, with gender and partisanship significant drivers of opinion on this issue


    1. This may play well to the PPC

      From the poll above

      Accordingly, six-in-ten Canadians (61%) believe political parties in Canada have too much influence. Majorities from all three major party spheres agree with this, although those who would consider voting for the federal Conservative Party in a future election are once again the most dissatisfied with the current state of affairs: 72 per cent among this group believe political parties in Canada today have too much influence.

    2. That would be the 63% who vote liberal socialist every election. By the way, all parties to date are liberal socialist and that includes the conservatives.

      1. Well the PPC is heading in the right direction and you can’t go full on Libertarian like the Libertarians have tried and have yet to be successful.

        One step at the time and the PPC are stating Platforms that are finally quantitatively conservative.

        The LibCons are completely left of center.

  13. Blasphemy is now a sackable offence


    An Asda worker has lost his job for sharing a Billy Connolly clip that mocked Islam. Apparently blasphemy is now a sackable offence. Something has gone seriously wrong in this country:

    If you’re not a fan of religion – or political correctness – then it looks like a job at Asda isn’t for you. Examiner Live reports that Brian Leach, a 54-year-old disabled till worker, has been sacked from his job in a Dewsbury Asda because he shared a Billy Connolly video about religion on his personal Facebook page. This is a case so mad and authoritarian it really makes you double take.


    1. They couldn’t call him a racist because he was black.

      Think about that and even though he was black and disabled sharing something online, on his private social media the Human Resources Gestapos still fired him.

      All to not hurt the feelings of Muslims.

      We can’t allow this in Canada to grow anymore, we need to kill it in the October election.

      There is only one party platforms with a true leader offering that and it ain’t the LibCons, NDP or Greens.

      1. Maxime Bernier Retweeted

        is the only leader in Canada who is standing up for the bedrock of western society…
        Free Speech.

        There are many reasons to vote for Max in the fall, this is mine.

        The PPC’s strength is their dedication to free speech

        The nationalist Brexit Party, led by outspoken euroskeptic Nigel Farage, came into existence last January. Four months later, it boasts 29 MEPs (Members of the European Parliament). By contrast, this past May, Canada’s Green Party elected its second member of parliament after 36 years of existence.

        There’s a message here. The Green Party is not a “disruptor” of the status quo, and it doesn’t represent a groundswell of voices who feel left out of the conversation. It’s just a more fibrously left wing form of the same political granola served up by the NDP and the Liberal Party. It’s not really needed. But the Brexit Party’s success is a genuinely organic statement of anger directed at traditional parties by great swaths of citizens who not only felt disrespected and ignored, they actually were, by any objective standards, disrespected and ignored. It was needed.



        1. My favourite part was the lasts two paragraphs of the The Post Millennial article linked above

          As to the question of vote-splitting, Haskell told me, “If you’re a Canadian with conservative leanings, this next federal election can’t just be about getting Justin Trudeau out, it has to be about getting a “conservative” government in. And the CPC is no longer conservative, outside of their name. On running a deficit, keeping immigration numbers high, giving government handouts, even censoring conservative opinions, Andrew Scheer is the same as the Liberals. There’s only one conservative party in Canada today and that’s the PPC under Max Bernier. We’re not splitting the conservative vote, we’re gathering it, because people can see we’re the real deal.”

          That is a harsh assessment of Scheer and his party, and I wish I could say that it is too harsh, but I am afraid I cannot. Many Canadian conservatives have been extremely patient with Scheer, hoping for a platform reveal that would reflect even some of their freedom-related concerns. That has not happened.

  14. Canada will soon be one big park if the Liberals get power again.

    Closing Down Canada’s Oil and Gas Industries (Part 1 of 2)

    “Imperial Oil responded to the new laws by stating they will “unfortunately cause us to step back and deeply consider any and all future major growth opportunities.” Also, President of Japan Canada Oil Sands Satoshi Abe, who has invested billions of dollars in this country, indicated: “Increasing regulatory hurdles and uncertainty simply adds to the challenges making Canada unattractive when compared to other jurisdictions.”


    1. As I mentioned in an earlier post, the forestry industry in western Canada’s getting clobbered:


      We can thank, in part, Prinz Dummkopf and his dipsy-doodle team of NAFTA negotiators for that. As a result, I can’t sell some of my father’s machine tools because there’s no work for them. Had those facilities remained open, I’m sure that someone would have been interested.

  15. One of the other depression era projects was the Grand Coulee Dam, in Washington state, which is larger (by width and concrete content) than the Hoover dam. They used a Canadian subsidiary of General Electric to make the three 700,000kw generators. In 2002 GE Hydro in Lachine Que. got the contract to update the generators. The turbines can be turned into pumps, to pump water for agriculture, or to storage pools, that can be reversed to supply extra power when demands peak ( a form of energy storage lacking by most modern renewables.)


    What did we get in Canada from the depression? The Bank of Canada and the CBC…

    1. Good to see that work in Canada. At Darlington NGS in Ontario, they are getting a new stator for a generator and it is being built in Poland

  16. Trudeau’s CBC is excited today about Climate Barbie’s carbon tax announcement. Our California girl is giving millions of carbon tax dollars to schools in provinces that have Conservative governments. This even though schools are a provincial responsibility. She explains she had to step in because of the evil cut backs of the evil Scheer/Ford alliance. In other news, our Minister of No Defence is setting aside worries about our military and is joining forces with an NGO to prevent child soldiers around the world.

    1. She had to step in because we’re in a climate emergency, the environmental equivalent to martial law. If that’s the case, then what’s the difference between Climate Barbie’s ridiculous proclamation and the invocation of the War Measures Act nearly 50 years ago?

      Anybody want to bet that any of the schools will turn down that money…. nah, I didn’t think so.

  17. Maxime Bernier

    Censorship of politically incorrect speech undermines social cohesion, erodes shared national values, and prevents us from learning the truth.

  18. The challenge around building dams — particularly anything remote like the Abitibi — is that you can’t just hire people and get started, you have to essentially clear the wilderness and build roads going in and sometimes set up a town for workers to live in before you can even start. An astonishing engineering challenge. McLean was famous for being very supportive of worker safety. So his workers were very supportive of him. McLean was also known for always getting the job done on time — usually more quickly than anticipated. Once when a project was threatening to be late, a bunch of former Harry McLean workers dropped what they were doing and went to the job site to help when the word went out that Harry needed help. That project too, came in on time.

    1. Trains are for losers who don’t have cars. If you have a car, why take a train? I can take a inner city train from Toronto to Ottawa, and when I get to Ottawa I have no way to get around. Far easier to just drive, especially since I own two cars.

      1. Why not leave one of your cars in Ottawa so you can take the train 🙂

      2. Until the Sixties, you could board a train at Union Station and get off right in downtown Ottawa next to the Château Laurier.

        But then again, that was back in those ignorant “pre-woke” days when Canada was a bustling dominion.

  19. The Rebel

  20. Libertarians don’t get anywhere cuz too many average Joe investors buy into the cheap money printing Ponzi that boosts their stawks and bonds. They don’t think there is a risk of blowing the money system up or hitting a brick wall. The debt is always some else’s problem. And the free sh*t army doesn’t care and who can blame them. It’s a disgrace that we are allowing the debt burden to be passed on to the next generation.

    Sucks to be you if you worked and saved for a retirement vs. having a cash for life gubmint job and gold platted pension that’s dependent on the ponzi and never ending money printing. It’s going to be a slow painful grind to Dystopia.

  21. One of feminist Trudeau’s MPs in Toronto is in trouble. The National Post website reports that a Liberal MP hired his girlfriend to run his MP office, got her pregnant, then fired her. That is so “progressive”.

  22. Little Potato is burning jet fuel with his wife to Japan Wednesday. No word on whether they will arrive in traditional Japanese costumes. Lets see how many countries he ticks off this time at the G20.

  23. The CBC is excited about its special documentary this weekend, that Nazis are running rampant in North America.

    1. I am so sick of this perpetual promotion of gays, etc. If you are an astronaut– nobody cares about your sexual preferences. Just do the job and shut up about it. Same goes for most other professions. Be gay if you want, but stop the unprofessional self promotion. It is demeaning.

  24. I was gonna make a cheap crass comment about Uranus but then decided against it.

  25. No, this is good. I can’t wait, neither can a whole bunch of GOPers. Meanwhile on get Trump, Mueller put it to rest already.
    What’s he going to say, Trump is a bad man but he not sure he’s innocent of obstructing a non crime – by his own conclusion?
    I can’t understand how the Dems think this would advance them. But I’m learning who these desperate Democrats really are.
    What’s next; taxes are sexy? Cut to commercial. Dossier? What Dossier?

    Mueller to Testify Before House Committees July 17th.


  26. Boy, ya gotta watch the guy that’s been blogging for years now. Every now and then he disappears for a month and then comes back swinging a bat. Goes by the name MMJ, ah, something like that. Just like an old whiner he went after Nancy for her spelling and blasts out warnings withOUT qualifying his statements then wouldn’t reply to a request for one. Then he blasts our Steakman for his blog, accusing him of ranting. Asking him personal questions if he feels better after. Then he goes after our Steakdude again, whining about his use of capital letters. Asking, again, personal questions, as to whether Steakman needs a new computer.

    Then just like nothing he goes on to reply to Robert about trains, just like nothing, reminiscing about something, just because HE feels better now.

    if you claim to live out West, he’ll remember it and pick on you. Beware, he must be keeping notes. Tomorrow you’re next….
    HE’S BACK!

    1. I certainly appreciate that there are many among you who would prefer SDA to be a mere echo chamber of like-minded addlepated rants and foulmouthed insults at all and sundry.

      Sorry to disappoint!
