BZ’s Berserk Bobcat Saloon, Tuesday, May 2nd, with special guest Ken McClenton from TECN

My thanks to the SHR Media Network for allowing me to broadcast in their studio and over their air twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as appear on the Sack Heads Radio Show™ each Wednesday evening.

Tuesday night at the Saloon we devoted the entire first hour to an interview with Ken McClenton, owner of TECN, which is The Exceptional Conservative Network. Ken quantifies himself as an urban conservative whose mission is to spread the good news of Christianity, Conservatism, Capitalism and Constitutionalism throughout the world. He is devoted to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and believes that in order to save the United States, we must mutually pledge our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor to save urban America.

Ken grew up in a conservative Washington, DC household where education was valued and both parents instilled in Ken a thirst for knowledge, a love of the Bible, respect for others. At the age of 5, Ken was reading the Bible and preaching. He has a very deep interest in history and the law. He overcame a speech impediment by emulating Walter Cronkite. His father worked three jobs in order to put Ken into private school and, with that, Ken learned sacrifice, diligence, hard work and discipline.

In the 4th Grade, Ken told his father: “some day Dad, while you clean the floors of the US Senate, some day I’ll be able to speak from them.” Ken unequivocally states that his father is the most brilliant man he’s ever met to this day.

Instead of taking her family to the park, Ken’s mother took Ken to the library, saying “you ain’t gonna be like the rest of ’em. You’re going to be different.” Ken realized that the world isn’t fair, and that you can exceed the expectations of others while still being who you are.

He says he’s a “much better father than I am a husband.”

Then there was tragedy.

Ken had his entire life changed in 2015 when his lost his 27-year-old daughter, Charnice, to DC gun violence. His daughter was used as a human shield between two warring gang factions and was then dropped to the street, discarded, when she was hit.

“I’m almost home, Mom. I’m coming home,” Charnice texted that night.

She went home, indeed, just not in the way anyone anticipated that night.

I read the article and I was embarrassed for law enforcement. DC law enforcement let Ken and his family down abysmally.

The suspects were, as of this writing, never identified, found or held to justice. Charnice was waiting for her husband to come and never found him, cut down.

Ken didn’t rail against firearms manufacturers. He became more stolid, more resolute, determined to never give up, never give in, never give over.

God has comforted, matured and prepared Ken for battle, using him as His vessel.

Finally, we wrapped up the show with a discussion of the First Amendment and how we are in danger of losing the First in the United States.

BZ’s Berserk Bobcat Saloon, “The Aftermath,” Thursday, March 30th, 2017

My thanks to the SHR Media Network for allowing me to broadcast in their studio and over their air twice weekly, Tuesdays and Thursdays, as well as appear on the Sack Heads Radio Show™ each Wednesday evening.

My more pointed thanks to Susan Katz Keating for agreeing to appear in the Saloon and for staying up as late as she did, in consideration of Eastern time after all.

SKK is an investigative journalist and popular blogger specializing in national security. A former Washington Times reporter, she is the author of Prisoners of Hope: Exploiting the POW/MIA Myth in America (Random House), and several books for young readers. A People magazine correspondent, she covers high profile stories, including the Virginia Tech and Ft. Hood shootings, and the SEAL assault on Osama bin Laden. Her work has appeared in Readers Digest, The New York Times, Air&Space, American Legion, VFW, Soldier of Fortune, and other publications. She has been cited in The New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, Salon, and other publications. She is a founding trustee for the National Museum of Americans in Wartime, and serves on the board of Cooking With the Troops. She briefly was in the U.S. Women’s Army Corps, where she earned her Expert rating on the M-16 rifle. She was editor of the Dixon Tribune newspaper in California. She was a director of the Travis AFB Museum, and served as restoration crew chief on a B-52. She belongs to the Association of Former Intelligence Officers.

She is no stranger to controversy, standing with assurance and courage. SKK is one of a handful of actual journalists left in the nation whose articles I’d take to the bank. Further, she was most certainly a fan/chatroom favorite whom everyone would like to see back at the Saloon as soon as possible.

Thursday night we otherwise discussed:

  • Trump vows to kneecap Republicans over healthcare — is that really a good idea?
  • Happy Stories and Good Times — “is that a pistol in your poop?”
  • BZ vows never to unmask “1 Viewer” as it’s policy in the Saloon;
  • Two Demorats defect over to the “confirm Gorsuch” camp;
  • What is the future for SCOTUS openings and subsequent nominations?
  • Foreign Policy magazine says: Trump’s ISIS plan might be a big winner;
  • Chelsea Clinton vs house plants; she loses;
  • Jury nullification needs to come back to California in re the PP videos;
  • What’s the difference between immigrants and illegal aliens?
  • Washington Post continues to prove it is Fake News;
  • Sean Spicer reveals that President Trump consumes Russian salad dressing;
  • House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes is doing his damned job;
  • I continue to prove that Trey Gowdy rocks;

Italy down; France next?

italy-five-star-movement-beppe-grilloI stated last Monday on Ken McClenton’s The Exceptional Conservative Show that if Italy rebuked Leftist government proposals it would be on its way to its own “Italexit,” and, should that occur then France would be next. I also stated that if France slapped Leftist values and went forward with its own “Frexit” then the EU was well and truly done, no matter what Germany or Brussels did.

Guess what?

Italy slapped the shite out of its own Leftist government on Sunday. Renzi is not long for his position. From YahooNews.com:

Renzi facing exit as polls point to Italy referendum defeat

by Angus MacKinnon

Rome (AFP) – Matteo Renzi’s time as Italy’s prime minister appeared to be over Sunday as exit polls indicated voters had overwhelmingly rejected constitutional reform proposals on which he had staked his future.

The reformist premier had vowed to quit if he lost the vote on proposals to streamline parliament and the first exit polls indicated he had been left with little other option.

Polls for national broadcaster Rai and the La7 television channel both called the vote decisively for the No camp. Their surveys put the winning margin at an average of 56.7 percent to 43.3.

But what were these so-called “proposals” on which Italy was voting?

The main opposition parties went into the vote insisting that there should be early elections if the proposals — curtailing the size and powers of Italy’s Senate and transferring powers from regions to the national government — were defeated.

Opposition parties denounced the proposed amendments to the 68-year-old constitution as dangerous for democracy because they would have removed important checks and balances on executive power.

The chamber would also have been stripped of most of its powers to block and revise legislation, and to unseat governments.

Read that correctly. Translated: the proposals were a naked power grab by the Italian government to remove whatever independence and authority local regions may have yet remaining because — as we all realize — any massive, centralized government knows much better than any individual how that person must live his or her life.

The bottom line concerns by voters were these:

Spearheaded by the populist Five Star Movement, the biggest rival to Renzi’s Democratic party, the “No” campaign also capitalised on Renzi’s declining popularity, a sluggish economy and the problems caused by tens of thousands of migrants arriving in Italy from Africa.

Say, might we have heard similar concerns expressed somewhere else quite recently?

Let’s talk specifics and reality.

The Italian government can’t pay its debt. Their budget deficit is growing. “The EU Fiscal Compact requires Italy to run budget surpluses large enough to cut its debt ratio by 3.6% of GDP every year for 20 years.” Really? You’d then best get ready, Brussels, to kick most everyone out of your blessed European Union and watch it crumble with those My Little Pony, purple-skied wishes.

The Italian banks are damned near bankrupt. Can they write down any of their bad debt? Negative, Will Robinson, because their capital ratios are already abysmally low.

Italy has an official unemployment rate of 11.4% meaning, of course, the actual unemployment rate is much higher due to persons who have stopped looking for jobs altogether. Just like the US. Just like any other country. Those figures are never collected or reported. But wait until you see these figures: “the youth unemployment rate is 65% in Calabria, 56% in Siciliy and 53% in Campania.”

Furthermore: “Industrial output has dropped by 35% since 2008, and investment by 59%.”

Stand by for the nominal Leftist bleats: it was nothing but ill-informed populism run rampant with Islamophobia, driven by irrational xenophobia, because all the commoners, proles, groundlings and serfs well and truly do not know what is best for them. And the Leftist Elites most certainly do. Blah blah blah. Rentoon rentoon rentoon.

These are indeed “interesting times” according to the Chinese saying. “Populism” is on the rise, no doubt — though I dislike that term. What I prefer to say is this: taxpayers are finally beginning to awaken to their being fleeced by big governments globally, run by Leftist Elites who wish to ultimately answer to no one or nothing. Populism cannot be tolerated because it portends a diminishment of their centralized mastery, challenges their authority, and blinkers their chances to make even larger and farther-reaching power grabs for complete and utter dominance.

That cannot stand. The unwashed masses must be put down, and quickly.

Yes, as Frank Underwood says, the money is fine and dandy.

But ultimately, it’s about the power.

BZ

P.S.

From this photograph, who is still standing?

leftist-leadersCorrect. Angela Merkel. Cameron, Obama, Hollande and Renzi gone or going. Anticipate that there will be massive pressure on Merkel from Leftists to continue living the definition of insanity, and that she will push back in ways heretofore yet unseen.
