US Naval Force To Middle East – Intelligence Proved Correct

-
The past week the US sent planes, AA-missiles and ships toward the Gulf based on Intel that Iran and its minions were going to start attacking US interests.
Apparently that Intel has been proven correct with the attack upon four oil tankers in the Golf.
-
-
Roanoke Times, AP, 5-14-2019, Pg N&W 1, 2: Restraint urged by UN in attack on four oil tankers off UAE.
Tankers reported damaged off UAE on major oil trade route
“FUJAIRAH, United Arab Emirates (AP) — As many as four oil tankers anchored in the Mideast were damaged in what Gulf officials described Monday as a "sabotage" attack off the coast of the United Arab Emirates.”
-
-
Damage to a Norwegian tanker from Bergen is one thing – how about the vulnerability of the multiple Norwegian Oil platforms in the North Sea!
-
-
-
-
“Restraint urged by UN” directed at the US – really!
What a typical BS response from a totally defunct entity.
Did the UN jump upon Hamas for firing 600-rockets into Israel?
Now the bombing of 4-oil tankers is a time for “Restraint” by those being bombed – Really?
-
Time to send Obama and Kerry to the Gulf on Kerry’s Swift Boat to guard the shipping through the Straights of Hormuz from their friends in Iran.

Plans For Rural America And TrumpNomics

-
RT Editorial: Sanders' plan for rural America isn't much of a plan
“Regular readers know that when politicians don’t pay attention to rural Virginia, we flog them like the proverbial rented mule. Sometimes, though, we offer some editorial treats.
we must point out what President Trump’s economic plan for rural America is: He doesn’t have one.”
-
-
Trump’s plan for rural America is the same plan for All America – stimulate the private enterprise businesses to provide jobs and lower unemployment; the result in only 2-years is a major improvement over the prior 8-years of Obama-malaise and is setting long-term economic records.
-

Coal And Mining Jobs Stabilized -- Part Of Trump’s “All The Above Energy Options”

-
Throughout global history people have been forced to move from area’s that are ‘economically end-of-life’ to areas of opportunity.
My parents left their Norwegian home on a small island because the environment no longer could support the increased population.
I left my home in the Catskills to pursue education and economic opportunity.
That’s not just a rural phenomenon but indeed a universal reality.
-
Americans have a history of moving from both rural and urban areas.  This process was at it’s peak during the implementation of the Industrial Revolution and was followed by the Rust Belt era.
-
Government programs to keep people in-place has failed miserably, resulting in a quasi-institutionalized existence.  No better example than the HUD hoods in NYC and other center-cities.
-
TrumpNomics has resulted in 1.2-million more jobs than unemployed.
This does not define the mismatches in skills and knowledge and location; however, it clearly points out that:
private industry expansion is the best driver of opportunity and prosperity.

Student walkout at Colorado school shooting vigil
(may have to copy-paste link into browser to view fox article)
“The very public scene of hundreds of Colorado students and their parents walking out of a vigil that was turned into political theater by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence was so embarrassing that the gun control group actually issued an apology.”
“Instead of putting together an event to bring people together to mourn, the gun control group brought in activists and Colorado politicians – Democratic presidential contender U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet and Democratic U.S. Rep. Jason Crow – to push a one-sided political agenda.”

Roanoke Times Pathetic Mother’s Day Recognition

-
Roanoke Times, 5-12-2019, Pg 1:  The worst advice our readers received as new mom’s
-
The front page of the RT is 10-in X 20-in = 200-sq-inches
The Pathetic Mom’s Day front page coverage = 2-in X 2-in = 4-sq-inches
That’s a whopping 2% front page coverage in recognition of the most important people in our society and it's message: (the worst advice)!
-
This also sadly consistent with past year’s Roanoke Times
What is the matter with these people?
And they wonder why their readership is collapsing!
-
Why this marginal coverage?
Perhaps the Liberal Progressive view is that being a Mother is no longer that important?
Perhaps the Liberal Progressive view is that being a Mother has even become somewhat politically incorrect;  Something about their love-affair with the LGBTQ movement?
Perhaps the Liberal Progressive view is that Hillary's Village is The Important element in 'mothering'! 
http://roanokeslant.blogspot.com/2012/12/kids-too-small-to-fail.html 
-
In the Liberal Progressive US society value system a Mother’s ‘child-in-process’ is little more than a ‘benign polyp’ subject to be plucked out and discarded at will if inconvenient; certainly not a cause and end product to be held in high esteem.
-
One might even reflect on the ‘Murphy Brown --- Dan Quayle’ issues that highlighted the importance of MotherHood and the ‘traditional family unit’ that has served society so well for thousands of years.
The breakdown of the family unit has become the bane of our society.
-
God Bless All Mother’s Past, Present And Future
-
A Mothers Day Prayer:
“Dear Father, we approach your throne on behalf of the mothers whom you have entrusted with the care of your most precious little ones. We thank you for creating each mom with a unique combination of gifts and talents. We thank you for the sacrifice of self each mom gives for her children. For the late nights spent rocking a colicky infant. For the hands calloused from washing, wiping, scrubbing, mixing, backing, stirring, hugging, patting, disciplining, holding, writing, erasing, painting, and pouring.”

The UN Great Dismal Swamp

-
Apologies to the Great Dismal Swamp in South-East Virginia for the name misappropriation.

Is there anything, anything at all that the UN does properly?

Our Va. Delegate Kathy Byron At Trump Meeting Today

-
Blue Ridge Caucus: Del. Kathy Byron goes to D.C. to back Trump's call on surprise medical bills
“Del. Kathy Byron, R-Bedford, showed her support for President Donald Trump's call for Congress to address surprise medical bills by attending a White House event on Thursday.”
“Surprise billing or "balance billing" is what happens when an insured patient is charged for care that is more expensive than anticipated or not covered by the person's insurance. People may go to the hospital in their insurance network, but then discover later that the doctor that provided care wasn't in their network.”

Va. Obama Judge: No Doctor For Abortion

-
Roanoke Times, 5-9-2019, Pg Va. 3: Judge’s ruling no doctor required for most abortions.
-
-
The ‘Progressive Democrats’ and their Obama Judges have certainly driven home that abortions are little more than a ‘benign polyps’ to be plucked out and discarded at will.
There are indeed consequences to elections!
-
Not requiring a Doctor seems consistent with ‘Doctor Democrat BlackFace Governor Northam’ who clearly stated on video that post delivery ‘we’ can set the ‘baby’ aside and have a discussion on what to do with ‘it’ now!
To his credit, at least he called the delivered ‘benign polyp’ a baby.
-.
Democrat Gov Northam Declares Euthanasia To Be Legal In Virginia

-
-
-
How is it that in this same Virginia, should someone kill a pregnant woman, that person is charged with also killing the ‘benign polyp’ as if it were a person?
In this same Virginia one can be prosecuted for 'unlawful' disposal of a fetus as if it were a person.

CNN Race-Baiting: ‘How Black will the Royal Baby Be?’

-

The AGW-Alarmists Declare The End Is Near

-
UN:  1 million species under threat of extinction because of humans, biodiversity report finds
-
UN report: Humans accelerating extinction of other species
-
-
The AGW-Gorites And UN And AOC proclaim ‘The End is Near’!
Why don’t the purveyors of Apocalypse promote religion as the appropriate response to the coming Annihilation of the earth?
-
Not since the Asteroid Impact That Killed the Dinosaurs and wiped out most critters and plants on earth have we faced such destruction.
-
Be afraid, be very afraid, the End is Near!
The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse are described in the last book of the New Testament of the Bible, ... The names of the 4 horse riders are Husain (famine) Badar (death) Faraz (war) Jake (Conquest) .... Some translations of the Bible mention "plague") or "pestilence"
-
However, the Reality is:
More than 99 percent of all species, amounting to over five billion species, that ever lived on Earth are estimated to be extinct. Estimates on the number of Earth's current species range from 10 million to 14 million, of which about 1.2 million have been documented and over 86 percent have not yet been described.”
-
-
Science:  The role of extinction in evolution
 “(iv) The extinction of species (and larger groups) is closely tied to the process of natural selection and is thus a major component of progressive evolution.  In some passages of “The Origin”, Darwin seems to have seen extinction as part of natural selection; in others, as an inevitable outcome.  ... extinction and natural selection ... go hand in hand. (p. 172).”
-
-
Be not afraid – the one-degree warming over the past 100-years is primarily the natural earth exiting the interglacial period we are in as has happened many times before.
-
Handing over control or management to the UN, of the earth’s energy systems, for any reason, would be an unmitigated disaster.
The ‘Paris Accord’ is about redistribution of wealth – Not saving the world!

Virginia Is For Learners

-
Virginia launches 'Virginia is for Learners' public information campaign
“The marketing campaign” will try to tell the story of recent changes to the state’s high school graduation requirements, accreditation standards and early childhood education efforts.
The new accreditation ratings take more than test scores into account, using student growth, achievement gaps and absenteeism, among other things, as ways of grading a school.
92 percent of Virginia’s public schools are accredited this year, up from 86 percent last year under rules that focused almost entirely on how students fared on Standards of Learning tests.
-
-
Virginia parents, voters, taxpayers and employers should demand that this “Marketing Campaign” does Not become a dumbing-down of academic standards for our students for whom we are paying over $12,000 per student per year or over $150,000 per graduate.
-
The first priority of ‘change’ should be to establish that every school room is an environment for teaching and learning and that those incompatible with that premise be removed until they can comply.
-
The second priority is to ensure competent, motivated and qualified teachers are in every classroom and are appropriately compensated.
(this is teacher appreciation week -- if you can read this -- thank a teacher)
-
The third priority is to clearly establish and manage the SOL requirements for each course of study be it college-bound, business-bound or VoTech.
The SOL’s should be the key measurement for achievement and entry to the next endeavor.
VoTech final exams should include the State Licensing Exam for entry into the specialty studied: i.e.: carpentry, mechanics, electrical, plumbing etc.  This requires mastery of English, math and basic science.
-
The fourth priority is that the educational facilities be compatible with the courses of study and conducive to the teaching and learning environment.

-
It’s said that 50% of new applicants for employment fail the drug testing.  Perhaps we need to start 100% drug testing as part of the graduation requirement and the State Drivers License.

-
The requirements and demands upon the next generation are ever increasing and their skill, knowledge and work-ethic will be tested in world-wide competition for jobs, quality-of-life and ultimately survival of our Country.
