America the Right Way -Staying Vigilant- January 26, 2015 – January 30, 2015 Remember 9/11

Hello!

The President heads to Saudi Arabia this week to pay his respects to the Saudis on the death of King Abdullah.

The East Coast gets ready for a huge storm…the likes of which “no one alive today has ever seen”. Hype or not, you decide, and it will be known soon enough. For now, authorities are urging people to prepare immediately as flooding and power outages along the coast are expected Tuesday and into Wednesday.

And this weekend, Greece’s elections took a definite Leftist turn. That’s the people’s choice to avoid continued austerity, the result of poor economic management. Will it be a good choice?

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Funny you should post that. This a.m. I read this:
      The Bridge on the River Potomac

      And further, yesterday I was thinking about a “Bridge” moment which may be coming…Last fall, there were 2-3 times when the Pentagon was caught “off sides” from the WH. I mean some high brass made some bold comments about the Islamist threat, and the WH was not happy…Brass then reworded their comments to fall in line with the WH.

      Now we have the Bergdahl moment. To not charge Bergdahl with desertion would be devastating to morale in the lower ranks, but that is what the WH is requiring to Army to do. Come on…we all know 0 is sympathetic to Bergdahl, and he doesn’t want the charges made. But the Army…there are standards. If no charges are made how can that be true to those standards and the best values of the services? It’s a terrible situation the WH is putting us all in….his delusions vs. reality.

      And now the Islamist threat has come to the fore again. Remember the very strong statements made at the beginning of the week by the retired generals and DIA head? Our very survival as a country is more important than 0’s ego issues, and we may be coming to the breaking point on that front.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      ok…this is exotic Friday fun!

    • Prairie says:

      Well said, Molly.

  1. Molly Pitcher says:

    Ok…breaking this a.m….Romney is NOT running. One of his top aides from 2012 took a key job with Jeb’s campaign PAC yesterday…good sign

  2. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh very good. I had a barbeque chicken salad yesterday lunch which pretty much filled me up for the rest of the day. My husband had a hugely thick pork chop, so I gave him some reduced portions at dinner….he wasn’t thrilled but c’est la vie.

    Morning quote:

    Get out of here you low-life scum

    -Sen. John McCain to a group vocally protesting Henry Kissinger at Senate hearings (i.e. “low life scum”)

    Democrats in the news

    -Bill Bradley- deflated basketballs back in the day

    Hansjorg Wyss – same guy who gave Podesta money ordered human trials –more here

  4. The Raven says:

    Just heard this on Savage. This Doctor and his wife were followed home in a road rage incident and the pursuer bashed in the Doc’s garage door trying to get to him. Doc pulls out his 357 and fires two warning shots…the guy keeps coming and the doc wastes him.

    Then a judge refuses to try the Doc and sends him home.

    The prosecutor is a flaming lib and charges him again. Unbelievable.

    • lysie says:

      How were the roads? Earlier, freezing rain was mentioned in your area.

      Going to do some grocery shopping..then maybe Karaoke at a local Legion. Not me..will listen to others.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Around noon we had some freezing rain while we were at the restaurant. By the time we left it had stopped, and the roads were fine…well salted!

  5. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    Woke up to minus degree weather once again. Climate change ( spring) can’t come soon enough.

    • The Raven says:

      Morning Quote:

      How can community college be “free” for everyone? This isn’t middle-class economics. It’s Peter Pan economics. In the story of the boy who never grows up, Peter tells the Darling children they can fly if they “think lovely thoughts.”

      -Dan Henninger, WSJ

      Which reminds me. Obama is copying the proposal from the Gov. of TN, Republican Haslam. He used to be mayor of my town (#56 on best list for young Dems). And, notably, one of my Democrat friends (a fanatic), who dealt with and knew Haslam through his business, much to the chagrin of his political friends, changed party affiliation to Republican during the governor primaries so he could vote for Haslam. At that moment, and going forward, I also had a question about Haslam simply from that (was he a Dem running on the ‘R ticket as mayor simply because you can’t get elected mayor as a Dem – and now continuing as governor as an ‘R?). But, alas, he’s been a popular governor and just got reelected in a landslide. Maybe he’s normal PS- His brother owns the Cleveland Browns

    • lysie says:

      Good morning, Rav.

      So, he’s a dem in pub clothing.

      Far too many of those for my liking.

    • The Raven says:

      Democrats in the news

      He was shocked, shocked I tell you. (Silver)

      Republicans in the news

      Rachel Marsden new on TV
      Chris Plante-new on FM radio (my new Fav!!)
      Larry Elder – fired from radio
      Mark Levin – long term contract – thru 2020

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning all. Thanks for the breakfast, quotes…
      Waiting to judge the weather situation here. I think it will be ok for morning errands, then lunch out.

    • The Raven says:

      I have a question for you country folks 🙂 …. I have a Weber (torpedo) charcoal smoker which does a wonderful job of smoking ribs and brisket, etc — but I’m thinking of getting a second smoker – an electric one – for the winter — any experience here on ATRW with the taste of smoked stuff in an electric ?? I intend to still use charcoal in the summer. Second choice from electric is gas and or pellet.

    • lysie says:

      Rav, sorry. We can’t help you with electric. Greg has Cabella propane smoker. I asked him if he likes it. He said, ” I love it.” He smokes turkey and he makes a great summer sausage-like smoked bologna.Like this.

      That Cabella brand is discontinued, but Masterbilt brand is very similar.

      After searching, I get the impression that propane versus electric is a personal preference and depends on what meats are to be smoked.

    • tillacum says:

      Thank you for breakfast lysie.
      Just got news that Allie, Toby’s granddaughter will be married in March on Toby’s birthday. Time flies, she’s all grown up and the boys are growing up too. Toby would be so proud.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wow! Thanks for passing along that news till. I do remember how Toby loved to talk about Allie. He was so proud of her, and loved to report on her activities, her friends…remember the sleepovers? Well, many, many blessing to her and the groom. I hope Jemian sees your post, too.

      Raven My husband loves his gas grill . That’s about all I can say on the matter. Very simple grilling, that’s all he does.

    • The Raven says:

      Well, I just found a website which rates them all. The one I was looking at (at Sam’s) – they said was horrible and cheap and will fall apart. They recommend spending a few bucks more and getting a pellet grill/smoker. They just happen to be on sale at Gander Mnt.

    • I did just see the post and that is heartwarming news. Toby was so very, and rightfully, proud of Allie, Tracy and the entire family. I’ll be praying for a wonderful day for her and no glitches. I wish Toby were here to keep us up to date with the wedding prep. Good news!

  6. tillacum says:

    Please, all in the NE stay warm and DRY. Don’t venture out on the roads except in a health emergency.

  7. lysie says:

    Once again, Molly, thanks for the links. Think O would like this on a shirt???

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      All of those and more !!

    • The Raven says:

      Jonah Goldberg wonders in his column why O asked for stuff in his SOU that the ‘Pubs won’t pass. … One speculation is

      “…he’s trying to “troll” or bait the GOP into debating his agenda rather than pursuing its own.”

      One of the things Rush does too often (fall into their trap)
      Jonah forgets another reason would be….he intends to bypass Congress again.

  8. lysie says:

    It’s being reported on many of the news sites that the Obama has decided to nix the plan to tax 529 college savings plan withdrawals.

  9. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Thanks lysie

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Wanted to add this, and it’s appropriate today and to your post.
      Yesterday I finished Three Minutes in Poland. It’s just out, and the author, an American, discovered a few years ago an old reel of film that his grandfather had taken in Poland, 1938, on a trip to his father’s country of birth. The author, David Kurtz, had the film restored just in time, but only a few minutes were recovered after all.

      Wanting to give the film to the Film archives at the Holocaust Museum, and any info he could discover about the place filmed, Kurtz set about on a journey himself of several years, to find the town in Poland, to identify any people he could from the film…the storefronts, and so on. His determination led him to bring the few survivors, aged about 90 now, together, with some of the few photos they had managed to save.

      These people had amazing stories, and the saddest testimony, “Of all my family, I am the only one who survived, ” one woman told Kurtz. Treblinka was the camp near the small town shown in the film, and many ended up there, if they didn’t die in the nearby the Warsaw ghetto. Others simply vanished in unknown ways. Kurtz appreciated all the coincidences and such which allowed him to find out so much about the town, and that his own family had left Poland well before 1938, the year before everything changed. I really admire Kurtz’s dedication to his project, and it was well worth reading.

    • lysie says:

      Wow! Thank you for that post. It brought tears to my eyes. Greg is Polish. I’m sure his ancestors had stories to tell.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Oh, wow. Great story about one righteous family. The detail about the old tombstones comes up in the Kurtz book too. The Jewish cemetery in the town was desecrated, and the headstones taken for other purposes ..either directly by the Germans or forced labor. After the war there was some effort to recover some of them at least.

    • lysie says:

      It would be nice if this was taught in school…today. Instead, it’s a bunch of liberal propaganda.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That’s true. A lot of time is wasted on junk, including propaganda on a variety of topics. Better, more important truths? Forget it. The Poles suffered much during the last century, between the Germans and the Communists, and their Jewish population? OMG, it was horrendous.

  10. lysie says:

    Molly, your link about Modern Times made me think of the Ed Sullivan show.

  11. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I could have that meal morning, noon, and night.

      WOW…Bergdahl is finally going to be charged with desertion, much to the WH’s opposition. What a scandal that is.

      AND, one of my faves, Gary Sinise, has spoken up in support of AS.

    • lysie says:

      Strange.

      Bergdahl did leave without permission…yet…the length of time he was gone was a result of capture.

      Since Bowe’s parents are members of Muslim cult, is O trying to look tough with Muslims?

      I just don’t know.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      This Bergdahl story should be a big deal. Another WH scandal, fantasy that it tried to concoct which was suspicious from the get-go. Too many things didn’t add up.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I’m not sure he was captured, but even if he was, the first action taken was desertion on his part, right? He deserted an observation post, leaving his comrades in the lurch. And dont forget, when forces went out to look for him, 1 was killed. At least. In any rate, our forces were put at risk in the aftermath.

    • lysie says:

      I agree he should be charged, but can’t help think O is involved in some shape or form.

  12. Prairie says:

    Good evening all. Finally a moment to check in. The High Tea was a great success but a LOT of work. Makes me glad I’m not into catering, quite frankly. And my friend who was in charge of the food actually did all the food preparation and cooking ahead of time, we just helped with the final assembling. Glad I helped out, but not likely to do it again anytime soon. I guess the best thing is it’s kept me from the news…..always a good thing these days.

    Hope all here are well and especially those in the path of the snow storm. Balmy wonderful 75 degrees and sunny here today. Oops, I shouldn’t have said that……!

  13. The Raven says:

    I was just thinking of the old days when the Chair would have snow storms rated with toilet paper rolls
    And speaking of snow…NYC is now only 8-10 inches – down from 30.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Ha, I was thinking of that too…well, be my guest, go right ahead if you want to resurrect the practice!

      Is somewhere else now slated to get more? Maybe the track has shifted?

    • The Raven says:

      They downgraded all the totals – total hype after all — a “SNOR-Easter”. They may even take back that Global Warming caused it.

      “…..the predicted 2 to 3 feet of snow had not materialized by 5 a.m. Central Park has seen more than 6 inches of snow while parts of Queens have seen 10 so far.

      Scientists credit the George Bush initiative for voluntary carbon reductions by industry.

  14. Molly Pitcher says:

    Elsewhere in the news today.

    Sad news from LimbaughLand…his longtime assistant Kit Carson has died after battle with brain Cancer. Sounds like Rush had a moving tribute to him on today’s show.

    Dana Perino is coming out with her memoirs.

    Andrew Malcolm finds evidence that Hillary !’s numbers are collapsing.

    And 0 was caught chewing gum – again – at a state ceremony. abroad

  15. Molly Pitcher says:

    Is Cuomo in trouble? is the Holder DOJ getting something right with this investigation?

  16. lysie says:

    Good morning everyone. Thanks for the start , Molly.

    • The Raven says:

      Molly, Greece going more left ?? The left has caused their problems and isn’t this just typical? Same thing happens here. We didn’t throw enough money at it. We need to nationalize that. We need a government program to solve that government problem.
      There is no faith in free enterprise because the left has demonized it.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      That is definitely true about Greece Raven. One poor choice followed by another. The country could not find a way out of their situation that didn’t impose severe austerity, so they reverted to the choice that got them there in the first place; leftist dreams that don’t match reality.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      Good morning! Tricky driving in the area this a.m.

    • Molly Pitcher says:

      I heard tidbits this a.m. on Bennett’s show about how out of touch 0 is, and the Left’s pundits are beginning to notice…like Alan Greenspan’s wife for one. Missed all the examples tho. How come I can’t listen to t he radio with one ear, and my husband with the other??

    • The Raven says:

      When you get in that predicament, Molly, you simply need to borrow another ear as Marc Antony meant when he said “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears.” 🙂

    • lysie says:

      Rav, Molly no one would want to borrow my ears. 😉 Which reminds me. I need to schedule an appointment for a new right hearing aid.

    • The Raven says:

      What drives me crazy with Atkins is sometimes I level off on weight for days on end (like now) even though I’m on low carb and zero sugar. I lost 8 lbs quickly and then very little since then.

    • lysie says:

      Yes. That happens. If I remember correctly you should eat a few carbs for a day, then, back on low carbs to jump start the process.

  17. The Raven says:

    Hype – a lot of us remember these guys:

    1993 “Storm of the Century

    over 40 inches in the state of New York.

    THE BLIZZARD OF 1996

    A widespread 2-3 feet of snow fell from the Mid Atlantic and into New England with localized 4 foot accumulations into the foot hills of West Virginia. The city of Philadelphia received 30.7 inches of snow, its greatest snowstorm total on record
