Photo of the week.
The DOJ Inspector General has released his eagerly-anticipated report for internal review. Thoughts are it won't be kind to the FBI, DOJ, and perhaps other governmental agencies. (Reference.) I can't wait to find out what it says.

. Dot "O'Keefe Shows Video Teachers Union Tried to Conceal."

Global-Warming Deception and the Leftist Environmental Movement

. Dot "Enviro Activists: Prosecute Accidental Harm to Endangered Species."



Government Run Amuck

. Dot "BOMBSHELL: Parkland Shooter Was Assigned to Obama-Era Program, Superintendent Lied, Report Suggests." So the real blame lies with leftist policies, not guns. I hope this doesn't surprise you.

. Dot "California Wants Money for Illegal Alien Health Care." Why not give them all big-screen TVs, too?

. Dot "CNN Analyst Throws Hate Boomerang at Trump, Comes Back and Hits Her."
. Dot "The Media's Derangement over Trump Has Me Wearing a New Hat and Predicting THIS for 2020." Can you find the really good laugh line?



Must-Read (or Must-View or Must-Listen)

. Dot "Russia Investigation Isn't Really about Trump, but Giving Cover to Obama and Hillary." I hope you have time to read this. It's very insightful.
. Dot "Berkeley Commission Obliterates Free Speech." Let's see. The Left doesn't like the First Amendment. It doesn't like the Second Amendment. Sounds like the Left doesn't like American. That seems more and more to be the case.
. Dot "Iran Deal Never Signed, Rush Reveals." Or, in more contemporary terms, the "precious" Iran Deal was a total "nothing-burger." Mr. Obama's legacy has been reduced to utter disgrace and embarrassment. It's not clear he even understands this. Oh, how fortunate we are he's no longer in office!
. Dot "Most Americans Stray from Constitution's Original Intent." This is extremely dangerous. What if referees decided to change game rules every day, to reflect "current times." Today, four strikes and you're out. Tomorrow: only two and you're out. Some would say that would be ridiculous. They would be right.
. Dot "Why Liberals Like Higher Taxes."
. Dot "John Kerry's Arrogance -- Negotiating with Our Enemies to Undermine Trump and Feed His Own Ego."
. Dot "BOZELL & GRAHAM: California Demands that Christians 'Evolve'." And what do you suppose that means? (I think I know.)
. Dot "Iran's Foreign Minister Threatens to Expose Western Diplomats Who Took Bribes to Create the Iran Nuclear Deal." Western diplomats took bribes? Tell us who they are!

. Dot "Inside the Mind of the Hate-America Left."
. Dot "Where's the Outrage over Kerry's Meetings on Iran Deal." Kerry is a Democrat, so the mainstream media surppress any outrage.
. Dot "Paid Agitators: A Long and Dishonorable History." Note: "To seize control of a country, citizens have to stop thinking of themselves as citizens. They must be divided into social, ethnic or economic groups, then pitted against one another. The manufactured violence destabilizes the country, persuading the people to quickly surrender their freedoms to someone promising to restore order." Sound familiar?
. Dot "NYT Report Confirms Obama Administration's FBI Spied on Trump Campaign." So now we know how corrupt and unscrupulous the Left is. It will quickly and assertively ignore laws and morality to reach its objectives. The Left is a dangerous and very powerful agent. It does great harm to the United States.
. Dot "BOMBSHELL: FBI Used Secret Program to Gather Information on Trump Campaign, No Judge Needed, Report Says." Democrats used federal government resources to spy on and disrupt Donald Trump's campaign. And to hamper President Trump in his presidency! This is truly outrageous! It's shocking. It's disgusting. Democrats have stooped to a new low!
. Dot "N.Y. Times Confirms Obama Spied on Trump." This is a gigantic scandal. All orchestrated by Democrats.
. Dot "LISTEN: 26-Year-Old Former Prison Inmate Blows away Rush Limbaugh in Epic Call: 'You Saved My Life'." Amazing conversation.

Other

Just imagine what we couldn't do if our acts and tastes were scrutinized and prohibited as cultural misappropriations. The food we couldn't eat. The items we couldn't buy or own. The things we couldn't say. The Left is crazy. They keep telling us we must embrace diversity, but when we do, they slam us for cultural misappropriation.

. Dot "Local NAACP President, Pastor Says Cop Racially Profiled Him. Bodycam Video Upsets His Narrative."
. Dot "Boulder City Council Unanimously Passes Feel-Good Ban on 'Assault' Weapons." Does anyone know what an "assault" weapon really is? Yes, it sounds scary. Of course, that was the intent. Would we feel the same way if it was called a "self-protection" weapon?

. Dot "'Hostile' Architecture in Public Spaces Is the Latest Thing Progressives Are OUTRAGED about." It must be Trump's fault.

Quotes of Note
Dot "I'll have them nigg--s voting Democratic for two hundred years." -- Lyndon B. Johnson. (Source.)
. . . . . Said about the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Apparently, the Act had nothing to do with the civil rights of blacks and everything to do with rounding up votes for Democrats. And it has been undeniably successful toward that end.

Dot "Statesmen may plan and speculate for liberty, but it is religion and morality alone, which can establish the principles upon which freedom can securely stand. The only foundation of a free Constitution is pure virtue, and if this cannot be inspired into our people in a greater measure than they have it now, they may change their rulers and the forms of Government, but they will not obtain a lasting liberty." -- John Adams. (Source.)
. . . . . This is worrisome.

Dot "Take away the heritage of a people and they are easily destroyed." -- Karl Marx. (Source.)
. . . . . When you take down statues, you take away heritage.

Dot "When an opponent declares, 'I will not come over to your side,' I calmly say, 'Your child belongs to us already. What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community.'" -- Adolph Hitler. (Source.)
. . . . . Your child belongs to the government education system.

Dot "If they can get control of children . . . they can change the whole culture in one generation. . . . Do you understand that children are the stem cells for the culture?" -- Dr. James Dobson. (Source.)

Dot "We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population, and the minister is the man who can straighten out that idea if it ever occurs to any of their more rebellious members." -- Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned Parenthood. (Source.)

All About the Pocket Watch

If you were in the market for a watch in 1880, would you know where to get one? You would go to a store, right? Well, of course you could do that, but if you wanted one that was cheaper and a bit better than most of the store watches, you went to the train station!

Sound a bit funny? Well, for about 500 towns across the northern United States, that's where the best watches were found.

Why were the best watches found at the train station? The railroad company wasn't selling the watches, not at all. The telegraph operator was. Most of the time the telegraph operator was located in the railroad station because the telegraph lines followed the railroad tracks from town to town. It was usually the shortest distance and the right-of-way had already been secured for the rail line.

Most of the station agents were also skilled telegraph operators and it was the primary way they communicated with the railroad. They would know when trains left the previous station and when they were due at their next station. And it was the telegraph operator who had the watches. As a matter of fact, they sold more of them than almost all the stores combined for a period of about 9 years.

This was all arranged by "Richard", who was a telegraph operator himself. He was on duty in the North Redwood, Minnesota train station one day when a load of watches arrived from the East. It was a huge crate of pocket watches. No one ever came to claim them. So Richard sent a telegram to the manufacturer and asked them what they wanted to do with the watches. The manufacturer didn't want to pay the freight back, so they wired Richard to see if he could sell them. So Richard did. He sent a wire to every agent in the system asking them if they wanted a cheap, but good, pocket watch. He sold the entire case in less than two days and at a handsome profit. That started it all.

He ordered more watches from the watch company and encouraged the telegraph operators to set up a display case in the station offering high quality watches for a cheap price to all the travelers. It worked! It didn't take long for the word to spread and, before long, people other than travelers came to the train station to buy watches. Richard became so busy that he had to hire a professional watchmaker to help him with the orders. That was "Alvah." And the rest is history as they say. The business took off and soon expanded to many other lines of dry goods. Richard and Alvah left the train station and moved their company to Chicago -- and it's still there.

YES, IT'S A LITTLE KNOWN FACT that for a while in the 1880's, the biggest watch retailer in the country was at the train station. It all started with a telegraph operator: Richard Sears and partner Alvah Roebuck!
