  • Vanity - Glimpse of Future USA through Democrat Party Hawaii political control.

    01/15/2018 12:46:52 PM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 17 replies
    Well. Mr. & Mrs. America, you got a grand taste & good hard glimpse of Democrat Party incompetent, dangerous and lack of civil control leadership in the great state of Hawaii a few days back. The panic caused by "Democrat Party" poor management, and inept public servants is the hallmark seal of "all" Democrat Party political and governing actions. The entire political leadership in Hawaii is guilty of causing an unforgivable sin of terrorizing both, all the citizens and tourists living or vacationing on the Hawaiian Island Paradise. None of them, from A-Z, has any idea of what they are...

  • Vanity - Hawaii, America's Paradise, Island Political Smarts, Brains & Leadership lacking badly.

    01/14/2018 5:26:07 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 27 replies
    Watching that Hawaii news conference yesterday evening was painful, to say the least. The Democrat Governor & Civilian Defense Chief who were both badly lost at sea. Neither had a clue or answers to an event that should have a been "top priority" item, like number one...the protection and defense of the island state people, both residents and tourists combined. Folks, there was neither!!! The Democrat leadership on Hawaii whether, local or statewide was 100% missing. The only pragmatic efficient, leadership came forth from the Federal Government Military personnel, The Governor the two US Senators, the Congress Representatives, have nary...
  • Vanity - Wolff Book, DACA Law, Democrats, Self-Destruct.

    In an earlier post, I stated that the author, Michael Wolff gig would last about three weeks. I was dead wrong..it has lasted about five days. By the way, who is Michael Wolff, anyway? Ah, the Democrats with Obama leading the "slave plantation" way, have first screwed every African-American in the USA, and now, they are abandoning about 800,000 Hispanic illegal immigrants (DACA folks) trying to get legal status to remain here in the USA. The Democrats could care less about these Latinas...all the Dems want is their votes..period. The good news is, aside from the silly, false blabber of...
  • Vanity - USA through "Trump" now owns the aircraft & automobile industry across the world.

    Last year the Boeing Aircraft Company delivered over 730 complete aircraft to operators across the world, literally destroying, Airbus, the European (European Union) aircraft manufacturer. Boeing stands alone as the greatest and largest supplier of aircraft worldwide. Boeing is also in talks to puchase Embraer aircraft, a Brazil based commuter aircraft manufacturer...and today, Boeing demonstrated a "cargo drone" that will change the world of air cargo hauling in the next five to ten years. The USA is basically doing the same thing in producing worldwide automobiles right here in the USA. Not only do we produce most "American" cars here,...

  • Vanity - Elected Democrats silent on Michael Wolff book. Media goes wild destroying themselves

    01/07/2018 7:46:30 AM PST · by JLAGRAYFOX · 33 replies
    Amazing...isn't it. very few, if any Democrat elected politicians have anything to say about the just released Michael Wolff book. Meanwhile the nutcase Democrat, Hate Trump, left-wing, Media is having a field day ranting about a no dividend paying "Trump Lie Telling fest". Why? The "Wolff" tome is pure political poison for any elected politician, Republican, Democrat or otherwise, it is as simple as that. Democrats hate Trump...but, they are not that stupid to know that embracing this farce of a book by insane Michael Wolff is a sure ticket to never being elected again. Case closed.

And...I can clearly imagine Wolff & Bannon, becoming homeless seeking shelter under a cardboard box in the middle of the winter with no shoes on...broke with no money, begging on the street, shunned by all people of dignity, truth and honesty. How any sane human being could spend one cent on this disgusting tome of falsehoods, is beyond me. But, millions will buy it...

    Democrats are predicting a massive wave political victory in the upcoming 2018 Mid-Term elections. Citing their victories in New Jersey, Virginia & Alabama, this year, as positive proof of their forthcoming victories in 2018. "WRONG"!!! Why? New Jersey was a no brainer. A Democrat dog catcher, man or woman would have won NJ with their eyes closed. Virginia, first of all, Governor Terry McAuliffe, one of the biggest political Cheaters/Criminal of all time did his best act. He was lucky because the "weak" Republican candidate, Ed Gilliespie, shunned the support of POTUS, Donald J. Trump. As a result of that...

    Lookie, Lookie, Lookie, The Hollywood film industry is headed for the trash bin. Just like the Democrat Party is in self-destruction mode...so is the Hollywood Cabal of political nutcases, crumbling. Yes, Netflix, Streaming are hurting...but the downfall of the USA film industry is very much being helped to failure and poor performance in both revenue income and ticket sales by poor product and even worse poor choice of politics. Going through life as an avid Left-Wing, Progressive, Hate America, Democrat carries little positive political reward. Even Rupert Murdoch was wise enough to dump his film activity onto Disney. Murdoch certainly...
