Nikki Haley rejects more U.N. sessions on North Korea: "The time for talks is over."

Good morning boys and girls.

With all the crap going on in the world today it's hard to zero in on one topic to talk about so I thought I'd just throw a few headlines out there and let you guys do what you do best.

Here goes.











And perhaps the most telling.


And in the meantime, what do the democrats and what passes for today's mainstream media focus on?

You know.

What a mess.

If it comes to all out war I wonder whose side these bastards will be on.

Just kidding.

We already know the answer to that question...

Random thoughts

So how about this big Boy Scout controversy? Seems the lefties hate the idea that the Boy Scouts cheered our President and booed the crooks and people who hate America. Seems OK to me. And all the same people who are ranting and raving about how horrible this is are the same people who are trying to destroy the Scouts by integrating sexual deviants into their ranks and removing their Christian ties which go back to their founding. So frankly, I don't care what they think.

What's everybody think about this Topeka Mayoral race? I don't know much about the candidates at this point. I guess it's not that important, we have a weak Mayor system. The Mayor is more of a figurehead, really. Doesn't vote. Doesn't really do much. I think it's more of a springboard for people who have higher political aspirations than anything else.

At least a couple of them are big downtown redevelopment backers it looks like. One of them owns property downtown. A sad little restaurant that looks closed when it's open, frankly. And I think he owns some other property. He probably sees big bucks pouring in when they get this hotel built that will probably be bankrupt in five years. So I think he probably is hoping to cash in and wants to be Mayor to steer money his way.

Another one I don't know about, but she is the leading fundraiser. And I see her signs all over downtown so I'm just guessing her money is coming from a small group of developers who own the entire downtown and have gotten rich destroying it by tearing down historical old buildings and putting up eyesores. That's a pretty small group and frankly I don't trust any of them. They wrecked downtown and now they are extorting taxpayer money to try to build a bunch of new crap. I think anything and everything these guys do is to benefit them. And if they are backing a candidate it's because she is promising to steer money their way.

Of course these are just my opinions. And honestly I haven't spent a ton of time on this issue. I just spend a lot of time downtown and have been disgusted with all this crap they have done.

They built a bunch of fountains and statues and repaved the sidewalks under the pretense that would bring back the people to downtown. But the people didn't stop going downtown because there weren't enough statues and fountains. They stopped going downtown because there is nothing there. Nothing but panhandlers and crazy people walking around and a guy dancing with a lamp screaming obscenities at passers by. And that ain't drawing crowds.

So I'd be interested in what anybody else thinks. Not big national significance, but I'm still wondering.

So feel free to comment on whatever. This isn't the Urinal, we talk about whatever the hell we want to on this blog so no such thing as "on topic" or "off topic" around here. Just thought I'd bring up something local for a change.

And thanks to Kevin for posting the videos. Take a look at those and then listen to the godless left screeching about the Boy Scouts. Singing praises to the great leader Chairman Mao is what that was. Boy Scouts cheering our President is what Boy Scouts do. Big difference.

So what's been happening?

I haven't posted much lately, I've been so busy I can't believe it. Work is crazy busy and me and Mrs Safe have a new side business that is taking every spare minute. It's just nuts. And it's tough on an old guy like me.

I hardly ever catch much news. And frankly, it doesn't seem to matter. Nothing changes. President Trump tries to do what he promised and the godless left, the godless left media, the godless democrat party and a bunch of turncoat swamp dwelling Republicans just stop him at every turn. It just seems to get worse by the day with no relief in sight.

The godless left has gone full in on this. They lost the Presidential election and it would seem their collective minds at the same time. I would think losing over 1,100 elections over the past six years would tell them something but it doesn't seem so. The continue their fight to destroy everything America is and stands for. They will not rest until they accomplish their mission. They will not give up. They will not suddenly recover their sanity. It's just not happening.

They hate us and everything we believe in. They hate the America that was founded some 240 years ago. They hate the governmental system we agreed to so many years ago and have fought wars internally and externally to defend and support. And they won't rest until it is burnt to the ground and replaced with some kind of pseudo communist top heavy godless government that turns us into Venezuela.

I honestly don't know how this all turns out. It's pretty scary. Never in our history have so many been dedicated to destroying everything good that has been built that is America. Or I guess I should say so loud and violent. I don't really believe their numbers are as high as they would have us believe, otherwise they wouldn't be losing election after election. But they are loud, and destructive, and violent. And they control almost all the media. So their lies are spread at an alarming rate.

So I may not be as vocal lately, but I'm still in the fight. So keep the pressure on.

And for the record. I don't think I've ever said I thought Jimmy the fishbait boy was entertaining. I certainly never thought that. I don't find him to be anything but another godless left wing POS troll who has nothing to add but shows up to pick fights. He's the scum of the earth along with his fellow travelers who want to destroy my country. So no, I don't find him entertaining. I find him disgusting, as I'm sure most of you do.

Free For All Friday...

With so much insanity going on in this country right now I'm not even sure where to start.

Luckily, because it's finally Friday I don't have to.

Today, that's your job.

For me, I think I'll just play a little music and chill out for a while.

Stay safe and be well, my friends...

Cowardly Republicans...

Give us the House and we'll get things done, they told us.

We did.

Give us they Senate and we'll be a force to be reckoned with, they claimed.

We did.

Give us the White House and we'll be unstoppable, they chanted.

We did.

And what'd we get for it?

A bunch of frigging cowards.

I've been a die-hard, staunch republican my entire adult life.

For what?

Seriously, what's the point?

For the last 7 or 8 years these worthless bastards have campaigned on repealing and replacing Obamacare.

I understand their reluctance to vote in favor of the bill that in all reality was just another version of Obamacare.

I get it.

What I can't accept is the fact that they couldn't even come up with the votes to support the back up plan which was to simply repeal Obamacare and start all over.

Every one of these cowards voted in favor of the exact same bill in 2013 while Obama was still in office and they knew for a fact he'd veto it anyway.

So what's next?

Tax reform?

I have zero confidence in their ability to make it happen.

Trump's border wall?

There's a story in "The Hill" about an upcoming House bill that includes funding for a whopping 28 miles of it.

What a sad, pathetic joke these people really, truly are.

I think Charlie Daniels defined our current situation perfectly yesterday with two simple yet accurate Tweets. 

The senate is not a political body, its a kindergarten class
OK the congress and senate we have can't work together and have proven it.
solution- replace them all until we find people who can

We finally have a president who's willing to fight for us.

We have the House just like we were told was needed.

And we have the Senate which we were told was was vital.

And what'd we get for our efforts?

Cowards, liars, and losers...

More than just some campground somewhere in Colorado...

Ah, despite this God-awful heat it's good to be home.

I mean, home is where all my stuff is and where my people are always close by. But it is nice to get away every once in a while.

By now most of you know my family and I went on our semi-sorta, yearly Colorado vacation.

Most people (including my kids when they were growing up) would think my idea of packing up and going to the same destination year after year would be the most boring idea there ever was.

Maybe I'm just a boring guy.

It all started pretty much by accident the first time my wife and I hauled our little popup camper and three kids out to Colorado.

We got a late start leaving Topeka and didn't get to Colorado Springs till somewhere around midnight.

I was tired, the kids were fighting, and my lovely wife was bitching about something or another so I pulled into the very first campground (still inside Colorado Springs city limits) we came to, played my "man card" and boldly announced this was where we were going to spend the night, now shut up.

Those of you who know that lovely wife of mine already know how far playing my "man card" got me.

She looked around and said something like, "you're crazy if you think the kids and I are going to spend a single night here, it looks like a damned ghetto!"

Fine then!

We pulled back out onto the road and headed west toward Woodland Park, and there it was.

A few miles west of Manitou Springs, on the south side of the road, we saw a sign that led us to what was to become our family vacation destination for the next 20 years, Lone Duck Campground.

We pulled in and I wasn't surprised to find the office already closed but what did surprise me was the sign on the door saying something like, "go ahead and pick an open spot and come see us in the morning."

I knew right then that the owners of the place were probably good people.

And meeting them the next morning confirmed it.

Much like my own family they were young and had little kids.

Among the things we hauled out there were bicycles and skate boards.

Scattered around the office were bicycles and a little kid's wagon.

After a few years we ditched the popup and got a bigger travel trailer.

The kids who by now were teenagers decided they needed their own tent site.

As they grew older their toys got bigger and eventually we'd have a caravan with my wife, youngest son, and I hauling the camper, my oldest son with a trailer hauling his jeep, his best friend, Fred with a trailer hauling a couple dirt bikes and 4 wheelers, and my daughter and her husband hauling themselves and my first grandson.

Over the years we had multiple vehicle breakdowns along the way that at the time seemed like game changers. But looking back we all just laugh about it.

It'd take all day to tell you about the adventures we had back in those early days so I'll just describe them in one, simple word.


Things were easier back then, too.

For the most part the only thing we had to consider when scheduling the whole thing was when school started.

Now that they're all grown, married, and have their own kids and lives to take care of it's a lot harder to make it happen.

But we keep trying.

Since they now have trailer and cabins for rent we no longer haul the camper out there which is fine with me.

It's funny, once you get older, you finally realize you're not going to live forever, so for me this a way to give them all something they'll remember the rest of their lives.

Whether it's fishing in the pond, playing pin ball at the arcade, swimming in the pool, stumbling out of bed at 6:00 in the morning for breakfast, or sitting around the campfire rehashing the adventures of the day, they'll all remember at least bits and pieces of it.

Building memories.

To me, that's what it's all about.

Go ahead and ask any of my kids or grand kids where we went on vacation.

Obviously, we went to Colorado but they're all going to tell you, "we went to Lone Duck."

And Steve and Lisa, if you're reading this, thank you so much for being a part of it...

Forget politics, play with a three year old all day

I haven't been posting much last week, or this week probably. My daughter and three year old grandson are visiting from California. And no, we don't talk politics. At All!

I am having more fun than I deserve. This boy entertains me constantly. He calls me Poppy, except when he decides to shorten it to Pop. He loves cars and trains and sandboxes and swimming pools. The little inflatable kind, I don't have a pool.

So I didn't watch five minutes of news last week. And probably won't this week. Frankly, I don't care what's happening in the world right now. All I care about is entertaining this little guy.

You want to forget about all this stuff for a while, get yourself one of these grandchildren.

And you know what? He doesn't care either. If I tried to explain about President Trump or the evil of liberals, he would just laugh at me and want to play with his trucks. And frankly, I like that. Because who cares when you have a bunch of toys to play with and popsicles to eat and dogs to chase and naps to take.

I'll be back full steam when he leaves. A little sadder to have him gone, but refreshed and ready to get back at it.

I know there's a bunch of stuff happening, and it sounds like we are winning the battle for the soul of America. But for a couple weeks, all I care about is this little guy who loves trucks and trains and having Poppy read him books.

So this will be short, and not particularly relevant politically. But that's OK. I hear a little voice upstairs looking for Poppy so I got to go. There's a bunch of trucks waiting for us, and adventures to have.

I'll check in from time to time but unless he's taking a nap, we got business to attend to. Truck and car business.

Stay cool.

The fundamental question of our time: Does the west have the will to survive?

I know by now most of you guys have heard at least parts of President Trump's Poland Speech.

I finally found a fairly short video (about 5 minutes) that touches on the highlights.

Check it out if you get a chance as it's well worth the time it takes to watch it.

I don't know about the rest of you but for me personally, listening to him speak makes me proud to be an American again.

It sure beats the hell out of the way Obama humiliated by bowing down to every tin horn dictator in the world.

God bless President Donald J. Trump.

And God bless The United States of America...

The meme wars have begun and CNN has no one to blame but themselves...

"CNN reserves the right to publish his identity should any of that change."

You guys have all heard the story about CNN tracking down the poor schmuck who created the goofy internet GIF that Trump re-tweeted,

In their world everything else ceased to exist.

Mocking our fake, lying asses will not be tolerated!.

With a gleam in their eye they breathlessly reported they'd found the guy and as long as he kept his promise not to do it again, his identity would remain secret.

Well, that was yesterday before the whole thing blew up in their faces.

This is today.

As of this morning there have been literally hundreds if not thousands of internet GIFS mocking those arrogant bastards.

Some of them are just goofy and some of them are downright hilarious.

But they all serve a purpose.

And combined together they serve an even greater purpose.

Evidently the American people don't take too kindly to multi-dollar so-called news organizations blackmailing people.

Grab some popcorn and enjoy the show.

I could keep posting videos all day long, yes, there are literally that many to choose from.

The point is CNN started something they can't possibly handle and may not even survive.

I suspect they'll do what they can to change the subject.

And I also suspect there'll soon be a few changes in management positions.

CNN and Andrew Kaczynski, head of the network’s Republican oppo research unit “KFILE,” gave a misleading defense after receiving an intense backlash to a Sunday night post boasting that he had tracked down and identified a man who claimed credit for a gif shared by President Donald Trump — and that CNN may reveal his identity if the man chooses to “repeat this ugly behavior.”

Reddit user “u/HanAssholeSolo” posted an apology to CNN and journalists at the raucous pro-Trump subreddit “r/The_Donald” earlier in the evening, saying he did not create the specific WWE-themed video that Trump tweeted. Kaczynski, in a story titled “How CNN found the Reddit user behind the Trump wrestling GIF,” revealed that this individual posted the apology after the CNN reporter had discovered his identity and sent him an email asking to talk.
Dozens of celebrities, commentators, politicians, and journalists criticized the network, all across the political spectrum — from Donald Trump Jr. to YouTuber Philip DeFrancoto WikiLeaks to anti-Gamergate stalwart Brianna Wu. The hashtag #CNNBlackmail became the number one trending topic on Twitter, with many critics calling the sentence about CNN “reserving the right” to release the man’s name as a “threat” to “dox” him.

Wow, classy move here by @CNN. Threatening to dox a guy over a gif. Wait who's the child again? Thought that was Trump. @KFILE

@ttabatabai8 @KFILE obtaining someone's IRL name whether published or not to extract obvious unoriginal apology describing sources/methods snds like dox to me.

This line is being misinterpreted. It was intended only to mean we made no agreement w/the man about his identity. 
@KFILE Bullshit. It flat out states his behavior is contingent on whether or not you dox him.

For those out of the loop, CNN reporter @KFile threatened to doxx the Reddit user who made the WWF gif and demanded an apology. Not news.
@KFILE Either doxx him or don't. But don't threaten to do it to blackmail him into certain behavior. That's way out of line. 

Problem is the internet is not proportional. This person was a jerk, sure, but revealing his ID would lead to death threats, job risks, etc.
I can't emphasize how bad this is on CNN's part. This is basically "don't post stuff we don't like or we'll dox you." Extremely unethical.

This line is being misinterpreted. It was intended only to mean we made no agreement w/the man about his identity. 
@KFILE @mathewi @CNN no matter how ignorant Han's words & actions may be u & your editor should be fired. That was a threat.. not journalism

CNN specifically choose not to reveal this guy's identity and to say we threatened anyone is a total lie. 
@KFILE @SilencingTrees Sorry, it's difficult to believe this isn't a threat.

Dumb GIF or not, this isn't really acceptable from a news outlet.

Kaczynski distanced himself from the proverbial scalp, saying that the man “posted his apology before we *ever* spoke [to] him.”

However, Kaczynski and his colleagues appeared to take credit for the apology before the story backfired.

Pressed on the apparent contradiction, Kaczynski clarified that his use of “spoke” should only be understood as literal speaking — not that the apology came before CNN ever communicated with the man.

A representative for CNN did not respond to clarify whether the man, according to Kaczynski, “called us to apologize further” after the story was published with the language that many readers perceived as a threat.
The network released a statement echoing Kaczynski’s defense, saying that the man “apologized and deleted his account before ever speaking with our reporter.” The statement does not admit that the man likely knew he had been identified by a CNN reporter — and could potentially be outed — before he wrote his apology.

Conservative critics pounced on the discrepancy in Kaczynski’s tweets, accusing him of “lying” about the timeline of the apology.

Still others pointed to CNN producer Donie O’Sullivan seemingly celebrating Kaczynski’s piece and New Day anchor Chris Cuomo asking if the network should publish the man’s identity — claiming that their language suggested a company-wide intent to intimidate or punish the Reddit user.

It's being said that Solo's apology was out of character, that he was initially really happy Trump shared his work

The network is under fire as critics assert that Kaczynski failed to establish the newsworthiness of the story. The network’s statement does not answer this concern, and representatives for CNN have not responded to a request for comment at the time of this publication.

People posting offensive memes are not newsworthy. CNN only cared about this guy because of the Trump gif. Theyre using racism as an excuse.

If the CNN story was worth publishing, it was worth IDing the guy who made the meme. If he isn’t worth IDing, it wasn’t worth publishing.

I have a lot of feelings about this CNN thing. Firstly -- you have no right to anonymity on the internet. If you wanna be anon, cover yr ass
Second, dude's name wasn't released. But I am kinda - unsure what the newsworthiness of this story was? Racist dude is a racist dude online?

If you think the Reddit guy's name is newsworthy, publish it. If it's not, don't.

Holding future behavior over his head is .

O’Sullivan retweeted a post from the New York Times‘ Maggie Haberman asserting that the “real story” in this saga is how Trump’s social media team is providing “hate memes” for the president to share.

Kaczynski’s post was only the latest part of a campaign by the network to attack “HanAssholeSolo” and to tarnish Trump supporters (and the president himself) by association. Breitbart’s Tony Lee wrote:
Outlets like CNN searched the user’s posting history and tried to make the case that the wrestling meme may be “racist” and “anti-semitic.” A White House official told media outlets that the video Trump tweeted was not pulled from Reddit. The reporter (Jared Yates Sexton) who first revealed the Reddit user’s racist postings said he received death threats after he published his findings before promptly blaming Trump for the “hateful environment.”
“This environment is the creation of the man in the White House,” he tweeted.
The Reddit user apologized to the reddit community and for previous posts that were admittedly “racist, bigoted, and [anti-semitic].”
“HanAssholeSolo” also said the post was “in no way advocating” violence “in any way, shape or form” and emphasized that the original post is not what ended up on Trump’s Twitter feed.
At the time of this writing, the article is not featured on the page for Kaczynski’s “KFILE” vertical.
