Pearl Harbor – The 75th. Anniversary

On December 7, 1941, the Imperial Forces of Japan attacked U.S. military forces at Pearl Harbor.  Congress declared war against Japan and the U.S. entered World War II.  On December 7, 2016, the U.S. will have been an occupying force in Japan for 75 years.  While I believe that the U.S. has shown great compassion and has given great assistance to Japan, it is far past time for the U.S. to leave Japan.

After 75 years, the U.S. has more than 52,000 military personnel stationed in Japan.  Japan, in my view, is quite capable of defending their own country.  Donald Trump, and Donald Trump alone, was the only serious presidential candidate in 2016 who discussed how future American military forces might be deployed.

In my view, American military Forces should have been removed from Japan more than 35 years ago.  More importantly, the U.S. and Japan have defense treaties that date back to 1947.  With the emergence of a new and modernized China, it seems like there is also a need for the U.S. to have a balanced policy in the Asian region.

As an American, I can not fully express my everlasting appreciation to the men who fought and died in World War II to keep our country free.

Laughter – Part 25

You know that you are White Trash:

1) If you have to go outside to get something from the fridge

2) If you let your 12 year old daughter smoke at the dinner table in front of her kids

3) If you can’t marry your sweetheart because there is a law against it

4) If your Junior Prom had a day care

5) If you wonder why gas stations keep their restrooms so clean

6) If you have been married three times and still have the same in-laws

Stop This Terrible Discrimination – A Modest Proposal To FOX News and Others

The following article was submitted to the editor of by the two illustrious authors: Isaac Bickerstaff and Jonathan Swift.

As a nation, we must move forward and stop many new forms of discrimination that are destroying our society.  FOX News, which pretends to support the Constitution, is the greatest violator.  Just look at the women who appear on FOX News.  All are stunningly beautiful with gorgeous hair, flawless complexions, and sensual figures with large breasts.  The women on FOX News all look like models and movie stars !  This is an unfair form of discrimination against average women !

Sadly, many other television networks follow this discriminatory pattern of feminine pulchritude.  This pulchritudinous attitude clearly discriminates against average women.    Are Americans to believe that average looking women can not report and analyze the news ?  Fortunately the networks do not employ this discriminatory standard in their male reporters and indeed have a plethora of ugly men reporting and analyzing the news.

Also, racial discrimination has once again become a part of America.  While watching an NFL football game, I noticed that nine of the eleven players on one team were Black.  Nine out of eleven is over 81%.  Where are all of the Asian players?  What kind of a message does this send to our children ?  Also, I noticed that neither MIT nor Cal-Tech had any graduates playing professional football !  Is this a subtle way of saying that individuals who excel in mathematics and the natural sciences can not qualify to play professional football ?

We must end this discrimination now !

The Great Turkey and Donald Trump and Mitt Romney

Back in 1992, I was with some friends and we were talking about Thanksgiving.  Several of my friends stated that they did not find Thanksgiving very enjoyable.  I made the statement: ” I like Thanksgiving and I believe in the Great Turkey.”

On the Wednesday just before Thanksgiving in 1992, the Great Turkey appeared to me in a dream.  The Great Turkey told me that I could ask one question since I publically professed my belief in the Great Turkey.  It turned out that the Great Turkey answered my question correctly.  Since then, the Great Turkey has appeared to me in a dream each year just before Thanksgiving.  The Great Turkey has proven infallible.

In 2016, the Great Turkey appeared to me again in a dream.  Again the Great Turkey said that I could ask one question.  I asked the Great Turkey: ” Why would Donald Trump ask Mitt Romney to join his administration ? ” The Great Turkey replied: ” Everything that a U.S. President does is fully reported by the media.  Americans are finally learning how important it is for an American President to have a pet dog.  Barack Obama’s dogs are named Bo and Sunny and they are Portuguese Water Dogs.  President George W. Bush had two dogs named Barney and Miss Beazley.  Bill Clinton had a dog named Buddy and Buddy was a Labrador Retriever.  President George H.W. Bush had two Spaniels named Millie and Ranger. ”

The Great Turkey looked at me and said: ” Once Donald Trump decides on his Presidential Dog, it will be Mitt Romney’s job to groom and feed the dog every day.  Also, Mitt will have the responsibility of cleaning up all the dog “poop” in the White House.  It appears that Donald is thinking about a male pit bull dog that will probably bite Mitt at least once every week. ”

Donald Trump’s Media Summit on November 21, 2016

The news media is very interesting.  The news media seems capable of reporting very basic facts.  For example, most newspapers have an obituary column.  The media can get the basic facts for the obituary column.  Now go to the sports section.  The baseball scores and the football scores are usually correct.  Now take a look at the editorial pages of most newspapers.  How many editorials have you read about the fact that Donald Trump was the leader of a new mass movement ?  None, of course, is the correct answer.  Exactly where is it possible to obtain accurate editorial information that correctly analyzed the Trump Mass Movement and did so correctly more than a year ago.  There is only one place that I know that did this ! It was  That is this website and the factual analysis is free for all to read.

Unfortunately, just because an individual reads an article does not mean that the reader understands the article.  Some may not understand anything the article analyzes.  Others may understand 10 % of the article.  Others may understand 20 % of the article.  A few rare individuals may understand 100% of the article.  If I were Donald Trump, I would have asked members of the media to read the following articles before the now famous meeting of November 21, 2016.

Three very important articles were published on this website.  The following is a list of the titles and the dates.  They are: 1) ” The Trump Revolution-Part 1. ” Published on November 7/ 2015; 2) ” The Trump Revolution – Part 2. ” Published on November 8, 2015; and        3)”  The Trump Revolution- Part 3. ” Published on November 10, 2015. The emphasis should be on the fact that the articles were all published more than a year ago, long before Trump got the Republican Presidential  Nomination and MORE THAN A YEAR BEFORE THE GENERAL ELECTION.  Readers may access all of these articles simply by typing into the search box at the top of this website the words, Donald Trump, and then click go.

Please allow me to point out that one of the articles clearly states that all mass movements do not need a God to propel them, but all mass movements need a devil to proselytize the followers.  Trump wisely made the corrupt Washington establishment and the corrupt news media the devil and proselytized more than 300 electoral votes.  Trump knows that he needs the corrupt news media to maintain his mass following.  If tomorrow, the news media started reporting fairly about Trump, I can assure you that Trump would be the unhappiest man in the world.  It is too bad that the media does not understand this basic fact.  I see the humor in this and I understand that others can not understand the inchoate and somewhat arcane ideas due to a lack of intellect or more often a lack of objectivity.

R. Van Conoley   ( Editor’s Note: I view the electronic media as biased as the print media.  The main difference is that the print media pretends to be objective while the electronic media divides itself into left wing ideologues and right wing ideologues. )

Keith Ellison Frightens People

Representative Keith Ellison declared on November 15, 2016, that he will be a candidate for Chairman of the Democratic National Committee ( DNC ).

Keith Maurice Ellison was born August 4, 1963, and has been a U.S. Representative from Minnesota’s 5th. Congressional District since 2007.  Mr. Ellison was the first Muslim to be elected to congress.  He is also the first African American elected to the U.S. House from Minnesota.  He is also a member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

Jacob Greenberg is Jewish and attends a private Jewish school.  Jacob told ” I am frightened by Keith Ellison.  As a Jew, I find it interesting to read about and study other religions of the world.  In the Koran, Sura 5:33 states: ‘ The recompense of those who fight against God and His Messenger, they shall either be executed, or crucified, or have their hands and feet cut off …’ How can I not fear a man who follows this doctrine? ”

Robert Williamson who attends the local Baptist Church fears that: ” Mr. Ellison wants to kill all Christians.  After reading sections from the Muslim Holy Book, the Koran, I find this religion very frightening.  In Sura 22: 19-20, it states: ‘ For those who disbelieve, garments of fire are certain to be cut out for them, with boiling water being pored down over their heads…’  This is certainly a clear directive to destroy all non- Muslims. ” believes that the general public is too fearful of Keith Ellison.  After all, Mr. Ellison was born in Detroit Michigan and is a U.S. citizen.  In the end, any DNC Chairman will promote the basic values of the Democrat party in the form of: 1) Higher taxes for working Americans, 2) More welfare for non-working Americans, 3) More rights for illegal immigrants, 4) Full support for failing public schools, 5) More rights for minority individuals, 6) More rights for Muslims, and 7) Opposition to everything proposed by Donald Trump in 2017-2021.
