The Un-Hackable password

Recently, my work computer died. I placed a request for a replacement to our IT department, and they called me shortly afterwards to get my domain login info for the replacement PC.

Tech: I need your domain password to configure the new PC.
Me: Qg4qyqjO8hd9oh
Tech: How the fuck did you come up with that, and how do you remember it?
Me: It's AbrahamLincoln with all characters 1 keystroke up and left.
Tech: Dude, that's brilliant, but I screwed it up...your new password is spring2018.

Needless to say, I changed the password as soon as I got the new laptop...E9hqoe%47j0. (DonaldTrump)

Profound Thoughts That WE ALL HAVE (even if you don't admit it aloud)

From a post on a forum...
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?" (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11). Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She said "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives. And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out. How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?" In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings, etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK. Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school .... the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal, and love your neighbor as yourself. And we said OK. Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide). We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK. Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves. Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure it out. I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW." Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says. Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing. Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace. Are you laughing? Funny how when you forward this message, you will not send it to many on your address list because you're not sure what they believe, or what they WILL think, of you for sending it. Funny how we can be more worried about what other people think of us than what God thinks of us. Pass it on if you think it has merit. If not then just discard it... no one will know you did. But, if you discard this thought process, don't sit back and complain about what bad shape the world is in.
God bless you as you share it with friends. No Nation or people can ever survive or succeed without Jesus Christ.

'Nuff sed...

Eclipse 2017: In The Path Of Totality

I have seen numerous, spectacular celestial events in my life, including the Aurora Borealis from Norway and St. Elmo's Fire from off the coast of Chile. I have witnessed several lunar eclipses from shore and asea, but never a full-fledged solar eclipse such as crossed America on the 21st of August.

Planning for the event began 6 weeks girlfriend from Rochester, NY had planned on traveling to East Tennessee to join me in witnessing this celestial phenomenon. I got us a pair of eclipse glasses while they were still only $1.99, and she picked up the T-shirts...

(T-4 hours to totality) We drove from Rutledge, Tennessee to Madisonville...along the way, we stopped at a convenience store for beverage refreshments and on the way out I suggested that we try the eclipse glasses...both of us donned them and looked up at the advertised, nothing but the full sun was visible through these ISO-certified lenses that were the equivalent of a Level 17 welder's shield.

(T-2 hours to totality) We had passed numerous roadside pull-offs, parking lots and even houses offering eclipse parking from anywhere between $10 and $40...eclipse glasses from $5 to $10 per pair. Many local businesses in the area had Police caution tape or vehicles blocking their lots with "NO ECLIPSE PARKING" signs prominently posted.

(T-1 hour to totality) I was looking for a particular event that the local Knoxville television station was broadcasting live from, but the availability of restrooms and refreshment facilities were limited, and the parking fee was $40. We agreed that was not the best deal we had seen, and drove back to the Madisonville Wal-Mart that we had passed 10 minutes earlier. The parking lot was almost completely full of RVs, minivans, SUVs, station wagons and even a semi-truck with an open spot next to it...we pulled in there and walked to the store for a much-needed restroom run and snack/soda reload.

(T-30 minutes to totality) We left the store with refreshments in hand, and the first thing that I noticed that is was demostrably dimmer outside than when we had walked in...when we got back to the car, we each put the eclipse glasses on and checked the progress of the eclipse...the moon was about 50% of the way to covering the sun...the image was stunning, to say the least!

(T-10 minutes to totality) Rather than craning my neck staring straight up to check the progression towards totality, I discovered that I could see the exact same thing (with the eclipse glasses on, of course) in the windshield of the Dodge Caravan parked immediately behind us. The truck driver climbed out of his cab, and we asked him to take a picture of us geeked out (see picture above). He explained that he was from Laredo, Texas and his company had cancelled his load pickup that day due to the anticipated traffic woes (great call, getting out of there was quite difficult!) I asked him if he had eclipse glasses and he replied "no"...the moon was about 90% across the sun by now and it was noticeably dimmer, but still daylight.

He put the glasses on and glanced skyward, and muttered "Oh my God, that's beautiful"...he handed me the glasses back and climbed into his cab.

(T-2 minutes to totality) The storefront signs began to come on, as well as the headlights of cars with the auto-on headlights. The parking lot was becoming noticeably darker by the second and the buzz of conversation was increasing...

(T-30 seconds to totality) The sun is a mere sliver in the afternoon sky. The temperature has already dropped by about 3 degrees according to the car's dashboard readout. I was no longer watching it via the Caravan's windshield, but staring straight up at the dark side of the moon.

Totality...A huge cheer and applause erupts from our fellow parking lot viewers...the eclipse glasses came off and I looked directly into the face of God.

Since the moon is not a perfect sphere, but one featuring hills and valleys much like Earth, the corona danced and darted about all around the silhouette of the moon.

(Totality + 2 minutes, 44 seconds) Michelle asks when the glasses need to go back on for safe viewing...I said as soon as you see the DIAMOND RING, put 'em back on.

(Totality + 3 minutes) The diamond ring has appeared and the glasses are back on. Another raucous cheer from the parking lot crowd and round of applause for sheer appreciation of a truly magical which tens of millions of Americans from Oregon to South Carolina were all united as...Humans.

What Is The Alt-Right Exactly?

Generally speaking, it is a term invented by Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her failed 2016 campaign to continue Barack Obama's destruction of American values and moral standards. The Alt-Right is anyone who opposed her Presidential aspirations merely because she felt that it was "owed" to her.

Let me tell you who I firmly believe the Alt-Right are NOT...we are NOT Nazis, White Supremacists, Neocons or any of the other bogus titles that the Propaganda Arm of the Democrat Party (aka, the Mainstream Media) depict us to be.

I'll tell you who we are. We are a bunch of hard-working Americans who are well-versed in the trials and tribulations of life as we've experienced it...not a bunch of college crybabies who have NEVER worked in the REAL WORLD and need a safe space from opposing viewpoints or opinions. We don't get TRIGGERED by words, phrases, pictures or statues. We understand history and are willing to accept it, and learn from it, without feeling the need to erase it.

We are a group of people who are tired of watching our society being torn to shreds in front of our eyes. We believe that humans are genuinely a binary species (aka male and female) and that traditional marriages result in the best outcome for the succeeding generation as a whole. We do NOT judge those who believe otherwise simply based on their beliefs, but are tired of being forced to accept that as NORMAL.

I am tired of being told about my PRIVILEGE, merely because I am a White, Christian, Heterosexual Male who works my ass off every day, and then being blamed for society's ills. I have NOT put anyone on Welfare/SNAP/EBT or whatever entitlement program you want to blame me for, yet I have to pay for it via my taxes.

Last point about us Alt-Righters...we were strongly opposed to Barack Obama's FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION agenda...why would you seek to fundamentally transform that which you stated to love and support? And then go to multiple countries and the U.N. and APOLOGIZE for America?

We supported and voted for President Trump because of 4 simple words...MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. His vision and ideas are nothing new...get the government out of the way and let WE THE PEOPLE do what we do best...INNOVATE!

1st Debate Analysis...

Hallerin Hilton Hill, I did my homework yesterday...I watched the entire debate, took notes, knelt and prayed when over, here is my synopsis. I have no kids, so I only failed on that expectation of yours.

First off...I graded the participants...I gave Lester Holt a "B". I thought he was quite fair, rarely let a candidate filibuster a certain point, although he allowed 15-30 extra seconds for both on certain points. He was inaccurate on incomes rising over the past 8 years (that's only happening for the investors and hedge-fund managers that Hillary hates) and not the middle-class citizen. He also asked 6 follow-up questions of Trump, 0 of Clinton.

I gave Donald a B+ based on his positions and his presentation. Taking more money from the corporations and successful businesspersons is *NOT* the way to inspire them to hire more people. Hillary's explanation of "trickledown economics" fails on it's face...the budget deal and welfare reform negotiated by Newt Gingrich and signed into Law by Bill Clinton were what kept the Reagan recovery alive...the surplus that Democrats claim as their success alone. External trade deals are also a large negative on our economy...making it cheaper to do business elsewhere does NOT help us!

I also gave Donald Trump a B+...for not attacking Hillary stronger on Benghazi and the E-mail server...2 segments of the debate focused entirely on those 2 aspects of cybersecurity! He gets a high score for his focus on the economy...who can dispute that a billionaire businessman is best to run the largest economy in the world? He also pointed out Sidney Blumenthal's influence on Hillary's decisions as SecState even though Barack Hussein Obama refused to accept him in the State Department.

Hillary Clinton gets a "D" on my scorecard...the only reason Hillary did not get an "F" was becaue she lasted the entire 90 minutes without collapsing or launching into a coughing fit. She went with the old CLASS WARFARE argument that hard workers must pay more taxes than slackers...her despite of the success of Reagan's "Trickledown Economics" during the 80's...Bill Clinton's greatest success was not screwing it up THEN...he waited until 8 years later when the Community Reinvestment Act caused the FannieMae/FreddieMac housing crash which he blamed on evil bankers and George W Bush...who was the victim of the legislation signed into law by Clinton.
As well as the "enhanced" crack laws where crack cocaine crimes are charged stronger than powdered cocaine...I personally don't approve of either, but the market determines
the demand...targeted against the lower-income community because the Prison-Industrial complex needs more participants to survive.

Donald Trump was right to ask "Is it Barack Obama's Fault?" Hillary merely deflected from the obvious answer...

Hmmm..."Surprise Meeting"?

The “unscripted and unscheduled” meeting at Sky Harbor Airport in Phoenix between former President Bill Clinton and sitting Attorney General Loretta Lynch…First thought? MY BIG OL HAIRY BUTT!!!

Nothing political happens by coincidence. Especially a meeting between a former President whose wife is under FBI investigation by a Dudley Do-Right FBI Chief James Comey under the umbrella of the DOJ. Especially a meeting in a private jet on the tarmac that neither party to the meeting had rented, but just happened to have the APU running and the AC on (hey, it was 110 degrees after all).

If it weren’t for a local news crew who just HAPPENED to be at the airport, even though nothing special requiring network coverage was happening, we’d know NOTHING of the meeting. Loretta Lynch’s visit was scheduled, as she had a meeting with the Phoenix Chief Of Police regarding the DOJ’s “guidance” (read Federal takeover) of local Police Departments.

Here’s how the scenario reverse-engineers itself in my conspiratorial mind…which is derived from intelligence guided by experience.

(Scenario #1) The FBI (not necessarily Director Comey), leaks to the DOJ that there is no way he cannot recommend indictment of Secretary Clinton for the E-mail server fiasco, lest his troops revolt. The DOJ acknowledges the presumptive recommendation for indictment and schedules a visit to the Phoenix PD, and notifies the local news media of the scheduled meeting. The DOJ also notifies the Clinton campaign of the scheduled visit, who notifies Bill Clinton, who subsequently schedules a “golf outing” to Phoenix for the weekend.
A soon-to-be 70-year old man with heart problems playing a round of golf in 100+ degree temps is suspicious to begin with…but I can live with that assumption…hell I love golf too!
So, AG Lynch’s plane lands, and Bill’s is scheduled for takeoff…he delays it, and enters the passenger compartment of a 3rd jet (privately owned, tail number as yet unrevealed). AG Lynch leaves her government jet and enters the 3rd-party jet as well. A local news crew, who just “happened” to be covering nothing at the airport captures the “unscheduled” meeting on camera.
A 30-minute conversation ensues, no microphones of course, since the 3rd party jet is privately owned…according to AG Lynch, the conversation was cordial and revolved around the Clinton grandchildren (as she has had no kids of her own), their mutual travel schedules, and the extremely hot, but dry, temperature native to Phoenix.
Gee, nothing to see here…the wife of the former President who is seeking to be the NEXT President meets with the Attorney General heading the investigation in the wannabe-next President.

Scenario #2 – Bill Clinton arranged for this meeting to casually “remind” AG Lynch who appointed her to the Federal bench in the first place on June 2, 1999…”Hey, I put you on the National Stage, I can take you out…forget the E-mail thingy, nothing to see there”. Quite believable, because Slick Willie has been a low-level thug his entire career. But that hypothesis fails in the end, because Democrats NEVER, EVER turn on their own…they circle the wagons, offering protection via deflection and excuses (remember the “vast right-wing conspiracy” during the bimbo eruption?

Scenario #1 is much more likely, due to the news crew just “happening” to be at the airport to capture the “unscheduled” meeting. They were tipped off for one reason, and one reason only…to give AG Lynch the ultimate “out” from having to indict…self-recusal due to conflict of interest.

If the Republican leadership demands AG Lynch, recuse herself...that's proof that the "fix" is in....wait for it.

The above pictures were taken within hours of each other on a date we are all too familiar with, September 11. On the right, a rainbow appears over New York City, appearing to either emanate from, or terminate at, the recently completed Freedom Tower. On the left, A lightning bolt strikes a crane (ironically owned by the SaudiBinLaden company) which collapses into the holiest mosque in Mecca, killing many and injuring hundreds.

Coincidence is merely God's way of remaining anonymous...He leaves it up to us to decide, debate and whether or not to ultimately be delivered...if I am wrong, then I have wasted my life believing a lie, if you are wrong, you have wasted your eternity ignoring the truth.

I strongly believe that these two images are both a promise and a warning. Which road we take is upon us.
