So if I can add a political observation, to what should, hopefully, for me, be a day free from politics, capitalism works and communism has failed everywhere it's been tried, even in this country before it was founded.

The longstanding debate on illegal immigration in this country shifted suddenly this week to an equally emotional debate concerning the Obama administration’s plans to allow up to ten thousand Syrian “refugees”from areas controlled or threatened by ISIS, following the massacre in Paris in which ISIS thugs went on a rampage that so far has resulted in 130 deaths..
Republican opposition is based on legitimate national security concerns and suspicions that the plan is part of an overall scheme to grow the Democrat party, which usually does quite well among Muslims, as it does with Hispanics, and others seeking assistance from government programs such as welfare and foodstamps, and more recently ObamaCare, atleast until the premiums went through the roof, rendering the affordable healthcare act, unaffordable.
It also does quite well with groups that have no desire to leave their own cultures behind them and become Americans in every sense of the word, as previous generations of immigrants have done.
Governor Charlie Baker, who is pretty good at reading the political tea leaves, has resisted accepting refugees in Massachusetts at a time that national polls show that the average person seems to be siding with the common sense pleas to thoroughly vet and screen the mostly male applicants that photos show look like young males in great physical shape, not widows and children, as President Obama condescendingly stated in his remarks clearly aimed at Republican critics, during speeches from Turkey and the Philippines, in the immediate aftermath of the Paris attacks.
Widows and orphans Mr President? You mean the kind that we know are being trained to wear suicide vests or pickup a decapitated Christian’s head and proudly parade it infront of a group of adult Muslims like the kind we’ve seen in photos posted on social media sites, while shouting “Allahu Akbar”, which btw doesn’t mean “God is Great”, but “God is Greater”, and that leads to the obvious follow up question: Greater than whom? The Lord Jehovah also known as Jesus Christ to Christians perhaps?
Obviously we are dealing with a religious conflict between those that practice radical Islamic ideology including Sharia Law and we “infidels”, who value our Christian/Judaeo heritage and the freedom and liberties historically inherent in Western culture, including the rights of women to be treated equally under the law..
While the whole world is appalled at the nature of the blatant display of barbarism on the world stage by disciples of this so called “religion of peace”, which now threatens us right here in the United States, including New York City and Washington, D.C., Americans are confused about the behavior of the President and his Secretary of State, John Kerry, as well as the strange behavior of the leading democrat candidate for the Presidency, Hillary Clinton, none of whom will even utter the words “radical Islamic terrorists”.
Reports from anonymous Obama staffers say, the President refuses to even read intelligence briefings on certain groups he thinks are justified in their grievances.
And Kerry implied that last years’ attacks by ISIS on the Paris offices of Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish grocery store, were justified.
Equally strange and unexplainable is why in the immediate aftermath of the horrendous attacks would the administration be doubling down on their efforts to allow massive numbers of questionable refugees from Syria into the country.
Speaking from Manila, Philipines, President Obama gave the impression he considered Republicans more of a threat than radical Islamic head decapitating terrorists, which is absurd, as well as totally irrational, stating that it is not part of our history to deny immigrants entrance into the country or to require a religious test for entrance, as some Republican candidates for President and members of Congress stated.
And I’m here to tell you he is wrong on both accounts.
From time to time in our nations history, particularly in the beginning of the last century, Immigration has slowed or come to a complete halt as it did under the Immigration Act of 1924 (Johnson – Reed Act) that shaped American Immigration policy until the 1960’s.
Did you get that Mr President? There was no immigration from 1924 – 1960.
And not only are Religious tests given every day in this country, but they are required by Federal Law under section 158 of title 8, US Code to ensure that as many people as possible who are being persecuted for religious reasons are admitted.

The establishment continues to poo poo him and portray him as devoid of any gravitas and not worthy to be on the stage with professional politicians, which they believe will become clear shortly.
And until the GOP understands the depth of disgust and anger that exists in the hearts of the grassroots electorate, they will continue to underestimate the power that Donald Trump now has over them, as well as his ability to actually win the Presidency.

In the aftermath of the release of the Ted Wells report, commissioned by the NFL on “ Deflate Gate”, the hatred and vitriol expressed by the national news and sports media has raised eyebrows, particularly in New England, as well as many questions.
Some of the questions that Rush Limbaugh pondered out loud during his nationally broadcast radio program the day following the report’s release, were profound, to say the least.
Was it a conspiratorial plot launched within the offices of the NFL in conjunction with the Patriots opponent in the NFL championship game? Was it a belated reaction to the Spy Gate scandal that many in the media as well as throughout the NFL felt had never been dealt with properly, believing Bill Belechick should have been suspended? Or was it insane theories that such compulsions to cheat were so ingrained in the Patriots organization that even the latest Superbowl victory involved intercepting radio signals that led to the game winning interception at the goal line.
Even though such speculations sound as absurd as believing the Bush administration was behind the attacks on 9/11, Rush explained they are actual ideas that can be heard from fans of other teams, players and coaches in the NFL, and members of the sports media.
One of the questions that Rush pointed out that has received little attention in the media thus far is political in nature.
The unequivocal chorus of accusations of “cheating” and irrational hostility following a report that didn’t use the word cheating a single time caused Limbaugh to speculate that “something else must be going on, including retribution for having the wrong political views, due in large part to Brady’s absence from the recent field trip to the Obama White House, where the President himself shocked the team by reciting “deflate gate jokes”, probably written by White House press secretary, Josh Earnest.
Earnest had already nailed Brady with a vicious and tasteless joke at a recent press briefing. It was that joke which may have been the real reason Brady didn’t accept the invite, and not his reported commitment to a family event. The fact is he was spotted at Gillette Stadium the day the team was in Washington, so nice try Tom.
On page 228 the report concludes: “In sum, the data did not provide a basis for us to determine with absolute certainty whether there was or was not tampering, as the analysis of such data ultimately is dependent upon assumptions and information”
Limbaugh further expounded by saying: “That’s like an asterisk saying: “We don’t know whether anything we’ve said here is true, because the data doesn’t provide a basis for us to determine with absolute certainty.”
So how does that lead to the conclusion that Brady cheated? Answer: It doesn’t. So as Rush logically states and I agree: “There must be something else going on here.
Rush also believes they could be irked by Brady’s get together with renowned Obama hater, Steve Whyn in Las Vegas, following his much publicized chartered flight to the Kentucky Derby with a group of his buds.
It certainly seems plausible to this proud Rush Limbaugh ditto head and New England Patriot’s fan as he sips his coffee from one of his prize possessions, a bright red coffee mug with the New England Patriots logo on it.
Go Pats. Go Rush. Go Tom Brady.
Please don’t roll over and let these Patriot haters in the NFL office and throughout the league destroy you. Fight back.
If the league comes down harshly. Appeal and appeal and appeal. Insist that the 66 interviews that were not included in the report be made public and examined further. Use the scientific data on atmospherics obtained in the report commissioned by the Patriots when the NFL first revealed the results of their abominable sting operation that allowed the NFL championship game to be played when they were fully aware, not only that the Patriots game balls were underinflated but that three of the Indianapolis Colts balls were underinflated as well, an important piece of information that was relegated to a footnote in the report.
Have your representatives insist to Commissioner Goodall that all those in the league office, who had knowledge before hand of the accusations being made against the Patriots be investigated, and have them take as much time as it took to determine that Tom Brady’s general awareness of an effort to keep the balls down to the legal limit of 12.5 PSI when refs were routinely pumping them up to 16 PSI was only “probable”, not conclusive.
And if after he does that, the Commissioner still wants to suspend one of the greatest quarterbacks and surefire Hall of Fame candidate in NFL history so be it. But if he does I would like to be a fly on the wall when Roger Goodall explains to the President of NBC why the starting quarterback for the Superbowl champions on opening day in FoxBorough this year will be a kid named Jimmy Garoppolo, and not Tom Brady.
