Donald Trump, President Xi Jinping, and Stormy Daniels

The following conversation was recorded by the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA). It was intercepted on May 18, 2018, at 8:02 p.m. Chinese time.  The conversation is between Chinese President Xi Jinping and the Director of Chinese State Security, Chen Wenqing. Comments by the President of China are preceded by “Xi” and comments by Chen Wenqing are preceded by “Chen” .  The recording is labeled: NSA//246//05-18-18//Xi 07284 and is labeled top secret.  It was leaked to Sanityandsense.com on May 26, 2018, by unknown sources.

Xi: Enter.

Chen: Good evening excellency. I would like to show you a picture.

Xi: I can not believe that you are using my valuable time just to show me a picture of a nude Western Barbarian woman !

Chen: Excellency, that Western Barbarian woman is a porn star named Stormy Daniels. In the past she has been reported to be the lover of President Trump.

Xi: She certainly has an attractive figure that is so common to Western Barbarian women.  Looking at this picture, I believe that it would take a disciplined and powerful Yang to tame her experienced Yin.

Chen: That was the belief of our State Security analysts. May I respectfully suggest that you look closely at her golden gully.

Xi: It never ceases to amaze me that some Western Barbarian women have golden colored pubics.  How unnatural ! I suggest that her code name should be ” Golden Pubics.”

Chen: That is an wonderful suggestion excellency.

Xi: But why should it be of concern to us who President Trump pillowed with?

Chen: Excellency, this Stormy Daniels has an attorney who claims that this woman needs to tell a story about her pillowing with President Trump.

Xi: That is strange even for Western Barbarians.  I see your note that she is 38 years of age. Don’t many Western Barbarian men seek a yin of a younger woman to rejuvenate them ? That is what a civilized Chinese man would do.

Chen: That is true excellency. Our agency recently recorded a conversation between banker Tang Lo-wong of Hong Kong and his nephew who is his executive assistant. Banker Tang is one of the richest men in all of China.  Here is a section of the recording.

Recording of Banker Tang: ” Ayeeyah nephew ! There is no aphrodisiac in the universe like youth. NONE my nephew. The yang needs the yin juices, but young juices, to extend a man’s life and nourish his yang. Always remember that the older your male stalk becomes the more it needs youth and change and young enthusiasm to perform adequately. But also remember that the Beautiful Box that nests between a young woman’s thighs is also an ambush, and can become your coffin if not used wisely. Therefore, I have acquired a 20 year old Western Barbarian woman to become my second concubine. At age 83, I must use this gift to myself wisely.”

Xi: Certainly Banker Tang is correct. Is there anything else Chen ?

Chen: No excellency. I and several analysts are about to view a film of this Barbarian, Stormy Daniels, as she displays her skills I a pornographic film that would be banned in China and not fit to be viewed by our civilized citizens.

Xi: Wait. In order to better understand the Western Barbarians, I will view the film with you.

The Gobbledygook Psychosis and Murder In Our Schools

On May 18, 2018, Dimitrios Pagourtzis murdered ten students at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas.  This was indeed a tragedy.  This type of tragedy has become all too common in the U.S.

Unfortunately, no individual or group has provided a satisfactory explanation of why this is happening in the U.S. so frequently.  The simplistic answer is to blame this senseless type of violence on the Constitutional right for responsible individuals to own guns.  This mindless theory does not explain why other countries throughout the world where gun ownership is legal, seldom if ever,  have murderous rampages in their school systems.

Sanityandsense.com will propose one variable that could be a significant factor in U.S. school violence and school murders.  Both the National Education Association (NEA) and the philosophical writings of John Dewey are considered responsible, to an extent, of  murders in  U.S. public schools.  Neither the NEA nor John Dewey are viewed as part of a nefarious plot to promote the murders of school children.  Yet that is a result of the actions of the two mentioned entities.

The U.S. requires individuals who wish to teach in the public school system to take a minimum number of courses in “education” and “educational theory.” Strangely, education courses in the U.S. have evolved their own language over the decades and this strange and psychotic language is often referred to as edubabble or gobbledygook.

The language of edubabble is similar to a form of English that is often babbled by seriously mentally ill individuals with a form of schizophrenia.  Schizophrenia is a serious mental disorder that is frequently characterized by verbal phrases that do not have clear and comprehensible verbal references.

Lets look at a few examples of edubabble to assist individuals unfamiliar with psycholinguistics and semantics.  Educator one might say to educator two: ” We must actualize our student’s cognitive potential across spatial and temporal scales.” Educator two might reply: ” Yes. We must also increase their effective intellectual domains.”

Unfortunately the above statements are open to 100 different views by 100 different people.  Edubabble has no common form of reference that is understandable or comprehensible.  Edubabble is simply a psychotic form of English that is applied and used in educational situations. ( Individuals who are interested in a greater depth of understanding should read and study books on psycholinguistics and semantics. There are many excellent books available in this field.) Unfortunately the U.S. educational system requires that prospective teachers and administrators study a language that is incomprehensible and lacks basic understandings in the meaning of words and phrases.

In a random group of people, some are mentally stable while others are moderately mentally stable while others are mentally unstable.  Mentally unstable individuals can often function adequately when they are associated or placed into a group where sane and sensible behavior are the norm. Conversely, mentally unstable individuals become more unstable when placed into a group or situation where sane and sensible behavior are not the norm.

Since edubabble is the language of public education in the U.S., most students are placed into an environment that increases mental instability. The main reason why edubabble has developed in the U.S. is because our educational system evolved from the writings of a man, John Dewey, who was a Fabian Socialist. As education developed in the U.S., the extremely liberal views of John Dewey became the norm. Also, like many ideologies, different viewpoints were not welcomed nor encouraged.  Hence, both moderate and conservative views in education were essentially “forbidden” in colleges of education.

Sanityandsense.com believes that all colleges of education should be closed at all universities in the U.S. since the material is counterproductive and at variance with basic common sense.  Also, Sanityandsense.com believes that parents should be given a choice relating to the philosophy and management of the public school that their child attends.  If Dimitrious Pagourtzis had attended a well managed public institution where common sense was the norm and accountability was the rule, it would have greatly reduced the probability of the tragedy of May 18, 2018, at the Santa Fe High School !

CNN At An Historical Witchcraft Trial

Many law abiding U.S. Citizens have come to believe that the investigation led by special counsel Robert Mueller is a witch hunt designed to destroy a legally elected president and represents neither justice nor the interests of U.S. Citizens.

A witch-hunt is a search for individuals labeled as witches or individuals who practice witchcraft.  Most witch hunts in Europe and North America took place from 1450 to about 1750.  Witches were tortured, burnt at the stake, or hanged. This barbaric practice existed in North America until around 1800.

However, there were no electronic devices nor electronic media to inform individuals in the 1700’s.  Therefore, I have asked the amazing Jonathan Swift to create a narrative that would have been followed if CNN were electronically covering a witchcraft trial in 1706.

Don: Well Anderson, it appears that the woman charged is indeed a witch.

Anderson: You are probably correct Don, but the trial has not yet begun.

Don: I can look at that woman and see that she is a witch with evil powers and can cast evil spells.

Anderson: It is true that she has four cats and everyone knows that witches always have cats.

Don: It has also been reported that she flies on a broom when the moon is full.

Anderson: I have some unnamed sources that state that the woman has supernatural powers.

Don: You are correct. I always know a witch when I see one.  My family came from the African region that is Cameroon today. ( Editor’s Note: Cameroon in 2018 still has laws against witchcraft and prosecutes witches for practicing witchcraft. )

R. Van Conoley ( I am deeply grateful for the assistance of Jonathan Swift and greatly appreciate his analysis. )

A Wise Saying – Part 157

If stability and efficiency required that there existed markets that extended infinitely far into the future – and these markets clearly did not exist – what assurance do we have of the stability and efficiency of the capitalist system ?    Joseph Stiglitz

Crime and Punishment

As a law abiding American, I believe that criminal punishment should reflect the severity of the crime.  Treason is a serious crime and capital punishment is one form of redress.

It appears to me that: 1) Hillary Clinton, 2) James Comey, 3) Andrew McCabe, 4) Peter Strozk, 5) Rod Rosenstein, 6) Loretta Lynch, 7) Lisa Page, and 8) Robert Mueller have all committed treason against the U.S. Constitution and against the American People in the process of committing numerous other crimes and excessive abuses of power. This group of unethical, immoral, vile, and reprehensible individuals appear to have violated numerous U.S. Laws and committed serious acts of treason.

Additionally, I believe that both James Clapper and John O. Brennan were deeply involved with the eight individuals listed above and clearly aided and abetted in serious acts of criminal behavior and acts of treason.  Both Clapper and Brennan appear to have seriously abused their power to aid the above eight in acts of treason.

While I believe that all ten of the above individuals deserve a fair and just trial in which they may present facts to prove their innocence, I can not believe the massive amounts of data,  e-mails, and other supporting documents that clearly indicate the commission of serious crimes including treason.

The alleged criminal acts committed by the above individuals is not in any manner equivalent to President Bill Clinton receiving fellatio from a young intern in the Oval Office.  If a court of law adjudicates treason for any or for all ten individuals, justice can only be served if capital punishment is the redress for their criminal acts.

It is my view that Robert Mueller is the designated “hit man” and his mission is to protect the ongoing criminal enterprise that has existed in Washington, D.C. for decades under both Democratic and Republican administrations.  I believe that Mueller and his band of Trump haters will stalk Trump for years so that Trump can not carry out his campaign promise of destroying the criminal element that has embedded itself into the U.S. Government and effectively destroyed our Constitutional Republic.

I do not wish to see violence, but events are clearly moving toward a very violent confrontation.

R. Van Conoley  ( Editor’s note: Congress is one of three branches of government and has vast powers to act as a check against the Judicial and Executive Branches of the Federal Government.  How is it possible that committee members of congress can demand documents from the Justice Department, the FBI, and the CIA and then not receive the documents? This indeed makes congress look weak, worthless, and corrupt.  Individuals held in contempt of Congress should be held in jail until legally requested documents are delivered.  Sadly, Washington corruption runs so deep, that some members of congress are also part of the Washington Criminal Cabal.)

Destruction of The U.S. Constitution

As a law abiding American Citizen, I have watched with ever increasing horror and outrage at the unethical, immoral, illegal, vile, reprehensible, and increasingly psychotic “investigation” by special prosecutor Robert Mueller.

It is clear to me and to most other sane and sensible Americans that the Mueller investigation is an attempt to protect a criminal cabal of high level men and women who violated numerous federal laws during the Obama Administration for the explicit purpose of aiding and abetting the Presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

It appears to me that the Clinton Crime Family recruited Andrew McCabe, James Comey, Peter Strzok, Rod Rosenstein, Loretta Lynch, and many more to violate numerous laws to promote the campaign of Hillary Clinton.  Additionally, individuals in both the Justice Department and the FBI abused their powers to harm and spy upon then candidate Donald Trump.

Recent actions by Robert Mueller clearly demonstrate that the special prosecutor will twist and distort the most basic principals of American Law in order to damage Donald Trump and protect career criminals who are part of the Washington cesspool.

Additionally, a section of the American News Media, often referred to as the Liberal Media or the Fake News Media, have seriously abused their Constitutional rights of free speech by abandoning every accepted rule of ethical journalism in their desire to destroy Donald Trump.

Even the mild mannered former President Jimmy Carter stated that Donald Trump was subject to grossly unfair treatment by the news media !

The poison spewed forth by the anti-Trump media is the shameful political equivalent of Nazi propagandist, Joseph Goebbels.

It is long past time when this shameful political event should have ended.  Our Republic can only continue to exist if a real special prosecutor is appointed and allowed to investigate all of the violations that happened before, during, and after the 2016 election.

A Wise Saying – Part 156

We have more faith in what we imitate than in what we originate.  We fail to derive certainty from anything which has its roots in us alone.  The greatest sense of insecurity comes from standing alone. We are not alone when we imitate.
