“I think it’s a direct link,” company CEO George Dethlefsen told Fox News, pointing specifically to Trump’s efforts to deregulate the U.S. economy and a “very strong market” for steel."



"Death's head revisited"-----MUST READ!-From a FB friend

Image result for deaths head revisited twilight zoneMUST READ!-From a FB friend:"Copied from a friend
"One of my fav Twilight Zone episodes, because of its powerful writing by creator Rod Serling, involved a story, about a Nazi concentration camp commander who returns to Dachau decades after the Holocaust and is driven to insanity by the memory of the ghosts of those whom he had killed. 
As the man is taken away, the doctor looks at the desolate remains of the concentration camp and shaken by its ghostly presence, says aloud, "Why does it still stand, why?"
In one of the most profound writings by Serling, his voice as the narrator responds to the query in the closing monologue as follows,
"There is an answer to the doctor's question.
All the Dachau's must remain standing.
The Dachau's, the Belsen's, the Buchenwald's, the Auschwitze's - all of them.
They must remain standing because they are a monument to a moment in time when some men decided to turn the Earth into a graveyard.
Into it they shoveled all of their reason, their logic, their knowledge, but worst of all, their conscience.
Image result for deaths head revisited twilight zoneAnd the moment we forget this, the moment we cease to be haunted by its remembrance, then we become the gravediggers. 
Something to dwell on and remember, not only in the Twilight Zone but wherever men walk God's Earth."
As I watched the news last night see Reverend Al Sharpton arguing for the closing of the Jefferson Memorial -and see clips of people pulling down with ropes statues that are over 100 years old in public - I thought of these prophetic words from Rod Serling written in 1962 and wonder if we have become those gravediggers."

What part of our history is safe if every part can in some way offend almost everyone and if being offended is the standard, what will be left of our history for our future generations?"

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say - LA Times

Who was responsible for the violence in Charlottesville? Here's what witnesses say - LA Times
"The clashes that broke out over the weekend at a white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Va., have become a new touchstone in the nation’s long-running debate over racism, free speech and violence.
One woman was killed and many more injured when a car, allegedly driven by a rally participant, sped into a crowd of anti-racism protesters. 
Two state troopers monitoring the action died in a helicopter crash later in the day, though no foul play was suspected.
The event quickly took on enormous political importance as Democrats and Republicans alike denounced the violence and the white supremacist views espoused at the far-right rally. 
President Trump has also denounced the racist groups, but he suggests that anti-racism counter-demonstrators share some of the blame. 
On Tuesday, he said “both sides” were responsible for the bloodshed.

Huckabee Makes A Great Point: Can Pro-Lifers Tear Down The Abortion Clinics They Find Offensive? | Daily Wire

Huckabee Makes A Great Point: Can Pro-Lifers Tear Down The Abortion Clinics They Find Offensive? | Daily Wire:
"...Speaking on Fox News this week, the fomer governor said that pro-lifers hate abortion clinics with almost as much, and possibly more, inflamed passion as the Marxist radicals have toward Confederate monuments. 
By the Left's own standards, pro-lifers should be allowed to storm any abortion clinic during its off hours and torch the death machine to the ground.
If tearing down offensive monuments is the order of today's business, why can't they?
...Huckabee warned that America is on the borderline of anarchy if it does not stop the marauders.
"We are bordering on anarchy,” he said, “having a select group of people tear something down because it offends them personally.”...

The Dangers Of Treating Transgenderism Differently Than Other Dysphoric Mental Disorders | Daily Wire

The Dangers Of Treating Transgenderism Differently Than Other Dysphoric Mental Disorders | Daily Wire:

Image result for chromosome"The cultural push for transgender “rights,” whether it be state-sanctioned access to particular restrooms, or the removal of gender dysphoria from the DSM, has reached a fever pitch in recent years. Celebrities and politicians advocating for the rights of transgender individuals to "live their truth” has become the norm, and anyone who objects to this movement is declared a bigot.

What if the celebrities, the politicians, and the medical experts are wrong, and the alleged bigots are on to something? What if transgender individuals aren't suffering from a mental dysphoria that can be treated externally with surgeries and internally with hormone replacement therapies? What if by acquiescing to the desires of those with gender dysphoria, and labeling those who challenge those desires as bigots, we are doing harm?"

Secretary of the Navy[edit]


Mabus meeting with President Obama in the Oval Office in June 2010. On March 27, 2009, Mabus was nominated by President Obama as Secretary of the Department of the Navy.[16] He was sworn in on May 19, 2009,[17] and held a ceremonial swearing in at Washington Navy Yard on June 18, 2009, where he was re-sworn in by the Secretary of Defense Robert Gates.[18][19][20]
In April 2010 a furor arose when it was reported that Mabus made the controversial proposal to name a United States Navy warship the USS John P. Murtha (LPD-26) after the late Pennsylvania Democratic congressman, John Murtha. Additional naming controversies occurred due to the naming of auxiliary ship after civil rights activist Cesar Chavez who has described his service in the U.S. Navy as, "...the worst two years in my life,"[21][22] and a corvette/littoral combat ship after former Arizona Democratic Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords following her suffering life-threatening wounds in a 2011 mass shooting in her home district of TucsonArizona.[23]
...Subsequent ship naming controversies include his January 6, 2016 announcement of his naming of another auxiliary ship after civil rights activist and sitting incumbent Georgia Democratic Congressman John Lewis. Mabus further stated that this particular class of auxiliary ship, of which the John Lewis would be the lead ship, would all be named after civil rights leaders.[24] Mabus followed this action with his July 14, 2016 naming of the subsequent after gay rights icon and former San Francisco Democratic politician, the late Harvey Milk.[25]

...After a January 2015 report by the Defense Business Board and McKinsey & Company discovered DoD was spending $134 billion, 23% of its total budget, on back-office work, and that the back-office bureaucracy staff of over one million people was nearly as great as the number of active troops, the Board recommended a plan to cut $125 billion in waste over five years.[29] However, when Ash Carter became Defense Secretary the next month, he replaced the Board chairman, the McKinsey results were classified as secret, and its report was removed from public websites.[29] Mabus then gave a speech at the American Enterprise Institute highlighting the McKinsey report, calling the back-office costs "pure overhead" and particularly criticizing the Defense Finance and Accounting Service and the Defense Logistics Agency.[29] Under Secretary Frank Kendall III then wrote to him asking "please refrain from taking any more public pot shots" and "I do not want this spilling over into further public discourse."[29]
On January 1, 2016, Mabus ordered the United States Marine Corps to devise a plan on co-integration of male and female recruits in basic training, giving top brass a two-week planning period, along with requesting a subject matter expert, to report the best method of said plan.[30]

A total solar eclipse has wowed the US.
