McHenry benefit for Orlando victims

Second Amendment Sports, in McHenry, will conduct a raffle throughout the month of July to benefit the victims in Orlando. They will award an AR-15 at the end of July to the winner and make a sizable contribution to a fund for the Orlando victims.

The anti-gun nuts have already attacked this fund-raising effort in the comment section at

What the anti-gunners refuse to acknowledge is that it is NOT the gun that did the crime in Orlando (or Chicago or New York City or... or... or...). It was the nut pulling the trigger.

I was asked recently why anyone would want an AR-15. Well, I want one. A friend here said "those guns" are just designed to kill people. Well, duh...  If someone is attacking my home, well ... need I say more?

Or if a militia must quickly form to defend against all enemies, foreign and domestic, will I wish I had an AR-15?

If Hillary attempts to dismantle the Second Amendment or if Congress ans the States do so, will it be necessary to defend the USA against its domestic enemies? Will the Army or the Secret Service or the FBI or the National Guard or my local police officers or sheriff's deputies come to my door?

Some say that will never happen. I hope not.

So, if you wish to donate to the Orlando victim's fund through the Second Amendment Sports' fundraiser, contact them. Contact information is on their website at

K. Zinke - arrested yet?

What kind of preferred treatment is Kimberly Zinke getting?

She was indicted on June 23 (last Thursday), and Judge Caldwell issued a warrant for her arrest on the same day. Zinke is to be arraigned before Judge Prather on Friday, July 1.

How much is the bond on each charge? McHenry Circuit Court online records indicate one case, three charges, and a "Bond Balance" of $1,000. Does this mean a $10,000 Bond and a 10% Bail amount of $1,000? On the case (No. 16CF000610)? Or on each charge?

Considering a search warrant was executed over a year ago and the Illinois State Police finally got around to the Grand Jury, is this a laughing matter yet?.

The Northwest Herald article on Monday reported that Henry Sugden is her defense attorney. He is not of-record yet, accounting to online court records. His name will probably show up after Friday's court date.

What's up with the Warrants Division at the McHenry County Sheriff's Department? You'd think they'd have knocked on her door and taken her into custody Thursday night. Why not, Sheriff Prim?

Zinke may have been on paid leave from the Kane County Sheriff's Department since April 2015. Or is she on vacation, maybe? Since her name doesn't appear yet on Bill Prim's Hotel register, is Zinke on a little vacation, perhaps in Mexico? If not, will she have to surrender her Passport?

Will MCSD just save a little gas money and let her turn herself in? Is that how police work is done these days with people indicted on felonies? Whatever happened to the old-fashioned way of knocking on the door and taking wanted persons into custody?

Will the MCSD Swat Team be activated? Or a multi-jurisdictional team? They know she has firearms. Will she have to surrender them and her FOID card?

Anybody starting to connect the dots yet? Anyone care to guess at some dots that ought to be connected?

Why donate to Donald Trump?

Why should you donate to Donald Trump's campaign?

First, The Donald doesn't need your money and mine.

But what we do, when we donate, is show Hillary and Gang that there are millions behind Trump who want him, not her, in the White House in January.

If you care about the USA and believe, as I do, that it would extremely dangerous to elect Hillary to the office of POTUS, then kick loose a donation. Click here or Google "Donald Trump Campaign".

The real Hillary

You can tell who people really are, when the camera catches
them with their guard down.

Now, who is the real Hillary?

This unflattering photo of Hillary Clinton is on AOLNews today, without the name of the photographer or the news source.

I'll venture a guess that this is who Hillary really is. I'm not trained in face-reading, but this expression ought to scare the living bejesus out of every voter, not just Republicans and Independents. If you could find a Democrat who didn't recognize Hillary and if you were to ask, "Would you trust this woman?", what do you think s/he would say?

What was going on in Hillary's mind, when that picture was taken?

"Oh, shit. They found out. How am I going to lie my way out of this one?"

Clinton-Warren Dem ticket?

I was in a bank yesterday, when CNN was broadcasting the Clinton-Warren event with all the sheeple lined up behind them. The moving banner caused me to think that Clinton had already selected Warren, but later in the day I read that Warren is just out on the stump with Clinton, sucking up to her and doing her best to get the nod from Hillary. You did notice how Warren didn't endorse Clinton until after she had enough delegates in the bag to win the Democratic nomination, didn't you?

This morning I'm re-thinking my declaration that, if Hillary wins the White House in November, I would pack and leave the U.S.A.

I just finished reading American Sniper. Sure, you saw the movie. Now, read the book.

Why has so much American blood been shed? Just for me to bail out in November, if Hillary takes the White House? Instead, I think I'll find my NRA "Stand and Fight" cap and have it ready to wear on November 9. Until them I'll be wearing my "Make America Great Again" cap every day.

And I encourage you to do likewise. Every day talk to people about 1. why they should vote for Donald Trump and 2. why they should not vote for Hillary. How can Americans not care about illegal use of an email server at home that puts American lives around the world at risk? Not care about Benghazi and "What difference does it make now"? Open borders? Weakening the military? More and more gun control (until only the criminals have guns).

And get after all those stupid GOP officials and tell them to get on the train or admit that they are really Democrats!

Anyone who was ever in the military or served in Federal office took an oath to protect this country against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

Keywords, folks - - -  "... and domestic."

How many domestic terrorists do we have right now in important Federal offices, thanks to the current occupant of the White House?

Visit your local gun store, folks. You are going to need all the firearms and ammo you can store. And practice, practice, practice. Keep in mind that your background check doesn't get destroyed 90 days after your purchase. It gets filed away - forever - where it can be used against you in the future.

Kim Zinke arrested by Ill. State Police - drugs

Kim Zinke has been charged by the Illinois State Police with drug possession. Zinke was indicted yesterday.

Thanks to Bob McCoppin and the Chicago Tribune for covering McHenry County so well. How could the Northwest Herald not know about it? Don't they have any reporters covering the courthouse or getting the inside scoop from the Sheriff's Department?

Zinke has been on leave from the Kane County Sheriff's Office for some period of time. The S/O says "at least six months", but the Tribune staff believes she could have been on leave since about April 2015. That's over a year on my calendar. What smells here?

The Tribune article indicates that charges were filed in McHenry County, but a Special Assistant State's Attorney/Prosecutor will handle the case. Zinke apparently has not yet been taken in custody, and there is no record at this time either in Jail online records or the Court online case listings.

End the sit-in stunt in the House of Representatives

If that stupid (Rep.) John Lewis wants to have a sit-in, let him go to Woolworth's. (Apologies to Woolworth's)

Where is Obama? Why doesn't he go to the House floor and say, "Bro, y'all ain't doin' no good here, ya hear? Now git yo' butts off that floor and git back to bizness."

If the USA had a true leader in the White House, he'd LEAD.

What does Obama do, instead? He tweeted those jerks in the House with "Thank you John Lewis for leading on gun violence where we need it most."

Is Obama really that stupid? (No answer is needed; we already know the answer to that question.) John Lewis (Dem.-Ga.) and his little sit-in stunt have nothing to do with gun violence. What it has to do with is taking guns away from the law-abiding citizens of the U.S.

The Speaker of the House should have had the House cleared after the session was adjourned. Head 'em up and move 'em out. He should have given them 15 minutes to get themselves back on their feet (all those old folks on the floor would need that time) and get out of the House. Then he should have had the Sergeant-at-Arms and the Capitol floor clear the chamber.

Make America White Again (in Tennessee)

Normally I wouldn't comment on such a controversial sign, but the nincompoops in the U.S. House of Representatives today have inspired me not to let this one pass.

Congressional candidate Rick Tyler (Independent) has put up a billboard reading "Make America White Again."

His websites were and, but they have already been turned off, according to one news article.

Rick's business is Whitewater Grill in Ocoee, Tennessee, which is 30-40 miles east of Chattanooga. You can only guess what the reaction will be.

Now, what happened in the House of Representatives today? Those idiots from the left side of the aisle decided to launch a sit-in. And who leads the pack? An aged, left-over, civil-right advocate who has somehow managed to get into and stay the House. Rep. John Lewis (Dem-Ga.) is taking his anti-gun belief to the House floor and stalling the business of America. What a jerk. You can read CNN's take on it here. And where was Hillary's pal, Elizabeth Warren? Right there, too.

The South seems to have a big claim on stupidity. Remember Rep. Hank Johnson (Dem.- Ga.), who feared that Guam might tip over if 8,000 Marines were stationed there. How in the world Adm. Robert Willard ever kept a straight face on March 25, 2010, I don't know. Maybe he got a good briefing about just how stupid Johnson was.

The People in this country had better wake up before November and realize what happens when stupid people are elected to Congress.

Now, before y'all start accusing me of being racist, I am honored to know several smart people who are black.

And I also read the newspapers and see all those black faces looking back at me, after their arrests for murder, robbery, carjacking, rape and lots of gun crimes in Chicago and around the country.

HOP HEAD (Illinois license) - still at it

On November 19, 2008, I wrote about a dangerous driver, in a Lexus with Illinois license plate HOP HEAD. Now, who gets a plate like that? You can read that article here:

Six months later a reader found my November article and posted a comment to it. Because that comment wouldn’t be immediately visible to current readers, I wrote about that comment in a new article on May 9, 2009. You can read the second article here:

The owner of that license plate is apparently still at it. Last week I was contacted by a man whose motorcycle was damaged in a hit-and-run driver in Michigan. Witnesses tried to stop the driver of the car with Illinois license HOP HEAD.

On June 15, 2016, a comment was posted to the May 9, 2009, article about that hit-and-run. The vehicle was found and impounded by the Chikaming Township, Mich. Police. Chikaming Township is near the southwest corner of Michigan.

“Here is [sic] is years later, but this menace is still a danger on the loose and on the streets. My motorcycle was parked on the street in Sawyer, Michigan on Friday, June 10, 2016, when a newer Lexus ES350 Sedan, white, knocked it over and took off. Witnesses reported the same Illinois "Hop Head" license plate on the suspect car, which was spotted a couple of hours later and towed as evidence by the local Chikaming Township police. We'll see if maybe justice will be served this time.

Anybody know this guy? His picture is included with the November 19, 2008 article.

Cole County, Missouri: BRAVO!!!!

Three cheers to Cole County, Missouri, for standing up to Obama and telling him to stick it in his ear over the lowering of U.S. Flags after the Orlando massacre. U.S. Flags in Cole County remain at full staff.

From AOLNews, "According to the News Tribune, Commissioners Jeff Hoelscher and Kris Scheperle — who "have control over how the flags are displayed" in the county that houses Jefferson City, the state capital — outvoted Commissioner Sam Bushman to keep the flags flying exactly as they were before Sunday's massacre."

Commissioner Bushman wanted to be in lock-step with Obama, but the common sense of the other two Commissioners prevailed.

The capital of Missouri, Jefferson City, is in Cole County. Population of Cole County is just under 77,000.

You can read more here about the decision on the local newspaper's website.

Obama fuels terrorism

I am so sick and tired of that wimp, Obama, lowering the United States Flag every four days.

All he is doing is setting up another round in the game for haters and terrorists to play called "Let's Get the U.S. to lower its Flag again."

If I had my own business with a flagpole out front or if I were a Mayor or Governor, I'd say, "No, NO, NOOOOO, the United States Flag flies high ALL the time."

But that sniveling, spineless occupant of the White House doesn't have the guts to tell terrorists or lone wolves or ISIS that Nothing will cause the United States to lower its Flag.

The Flag should fly at the top of the flagpole ALWAYS. Let it fly there to reflect the memory of any person who died and who is listed in the Flag Code to receive Flag recognition. A bunch of partiers in Orlando don't qualify.

Bad loans - guaranteed?

How would you like to be poor, uneducated, illiterate, unemployed, on welfare and other benefits, have no income or savings, and be able to borrow $15,000 from the U.S. Government without being able to prove ability to repay it? And maybe not even have to worry about collection activity?

Read this posting from Judicial Watch.

Maybe all you have to do is leave the U.S. and find your way back as a refugee.

All together now, say "Thank you, Obama."

Of course, then there was Bernie with his free-education-for-all scheme. Well, McHenry County College tried that, and look where it went. Almost all the money went right down the drain on unqualified students who never should have been enrolled in the first place.

What will the USA look like in 50 years? Nothing like it does today.

What were those home loans called back before the bubble burst? You know, the stated-income applications where you could put down any amount and get accepted for a loan you didn't stand a chance of paying off?

Fraudulent mortgage applications, over-valued appraisals, mortgage-backed securities... Why aren't all those crooks in prison? Want to read a good book about all that? Read Fatal Error, by Michael Ridpath.

Obama - the new Bathroom Nazi

Obama is flexing his muscles (he has muscles?) at colleges now with a letter demanding that they provide gender-neutral housing (and bathrooms) on campuses.

Obama's "Dear colleague" (why didn't he write "Dear John"?) threatens 2,100 colleges and universities.

Anybody else fed up (even more) with Obama?

Hey, after driving by the University of South Carolina and spotting all the co-eds flaunting their stuff on a hot day, I think I'll "identify" now as female and start showering with the girls. Or maybe I'll head for Boulder, Colo.

This country has much more to \worry about that whether some guy has the "right" to use the girls' bathroom. He doesn't, and I don't care what Obama or the Supreme Court says.

But wait a minute. Does anyone know that Obama is really a male? He won't show his birth certificate. He has effeminate mannerisms. Maybe Obama is really a woman. Think so?

Politicians - dumber than a load of bricks

It is hard to search for polite words to describe this season's politicians.

All those stupid GOP politicians (Kasich, Ryan, etc.) are sticking their fingers in their ears and handing the November election to Hillary.

Wouldn't it be better if they just kept their big mouths shut? But politicians don't know how to do that.

Do the Republicans want to win the White House in November or not?

From their actions, it seems "not".

Would they rather see Hillary in the White House?

If the GOP keeps running its train down the track toward that cliff, then it will just sail off into nothing and the Dems are going to sweep the White House and both houses of Congress. And that's a very scary thought.

It's bad enough that a Socialist has been able to nip at Hillary's heels so long and is still running down the path in her shadow.

What will it take to wake up the GOP that the General Election is only 152 days away?

Clinton tell-all book due June 28th

Former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne has written a new book about the Clintons. Order it at Amazon or your local bookstore. The title is Crisis in Character: A White House Secret Service Officer Discloses His Firsthand Experience, with Hillary, Bill and How They Operate . You can read a description on Amazon.

I opted to purchase a "real" book, rather than Kindle, for two reasons. I want to highlight portions that are significant to me and I want to loan this book to those who might have the slightest-remaining open mind about whether Hillary ought to be POTUS.

I recently read a Facebook posting by an acquaintance who was ecstatic about Hillary's clinching the Democratic nomination. That blows me away.

Maybe I'll send her a copy of The Murder of  Vince Foster.

I hope Gary Byrne has a lot of life insurance and knows who has his "six". I do not want to see his name added to the list of those close to the Clintons who now reside six feet under.

Beth Bentley - gone six years

Six years have passed since Beth Bentley disappeared. Six whole years.

How could she be missing since May 2010 and no one has a clue?

For those of you new to this blog or a little rusty on the details, Beth left Woodstock on a Thursday night to drive to Mt. Vernon, Illinois with her friend, Jenn Wyatt. They must have arrived about 4:00AM and reportedly were to stay with two brothers with Woodstock roots.

They supposedly drove there in a rental car, after Beth left her car in Jenn's garage in Woodstock. As the story went, Jenn drove Beth to the Amtrak station on a Sunday afternoon, and that's the last time anyone saw Beth.

If you believe the stories that came out, you probably also believe in the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy.

There were so many holes in Jenn's story that it would not have made good Swiss cheese.

The police work was shoddy, to say the least. A missing-person report was filed in Woodstock on Monday night, but Woodstock is 300 miles from Mt. Vernon. Just how much time could Woodstock PD devote to an investigation in Mt. Vernon. The house where Beth supposedly stayed was in Jefferson County, outside the City Limits of Mt. Vernon.

My guess is that at least three people know exactly what happened to Beth. And there might be at least two more who know second-hand, but credibly so.

How much drugs and alcohol were involved?

Is it still an open case at Woodstock P.D.? Several years ago Woodstock P.D. denied a FOIA Request, citing "ongoing investigation". Would it still deny, based on the same reason? I wonder if the new Chief will blow the dust off the file and direct a detective to bear down on that case.

Reading List: Founders' Son

A new (2014) book about Abraham Lincoln is providing me with insight to political campaigning and good parallels to Donald Trump's campaign.

Be sure to read Founders' Son: A Life of Abraham Lincoln, by Richard Brookhiser. I heard him interviewed on NPR a few months ago and noted his name and book title. It's available in hard cover, soft cover, Audible and e-books. At this time I'm reading an e-copy from my library, but the book is worth owning.

As I consider Trump's campaign and the stir it is creating, I find good background information all through Brookhiser's book. I believe that nothing Trump does is not planned. He is looking ahead, past November 8 and January 20.

I wish I had written down Hillary's words as she claimed the victory in the Democratic race. She didn't mention the people of America. She mentioned the Democratic Party first!

Lincoln didn't worry about being "politically correct". His words in the 1840s and 1850s would have stirred the ire of the BLM movement and gotten him labeled as a racist, and it would have lost sight of what Lincoln really stood for. But maybe some skins were just as think then as now.

Hillary: Trump "dangerous"

So Hillary is saying now that Trump is dangerous?

Guess who is really dangerous. Yesterday's photo of Hillary in the attack mode ought to scare the living bejesus out of everyone, Republican and Democrat alike.

Let's hear the truth about Hillary. Come to think of it, I think we are about to start hearing the truth about her.

Oh, and the rioting protestors at Trump events? The media make it out to be Trump's fault.

The scum and thugs (the protestors) deserve immediate arrest. Where were the San Jose Police? All at the donut shops?

It's not the Trump supporters who are rioting. They are the victims. It's the Hillary and Bernie fans who are causing the trouble. Just imagine what it will be like, if Hillary gets the White House. The thugs and scum will take that as license to go after the conservatives.

It's time to arm up (even more), folks. Be ready to defend yourselves and your property.

And arm yourself with facts, so that the next time some Hillary-promoting liberal wants to bash Trump, you'll be ready with facts to back them down.

What Nancy Pelosi didn't want us to know

Great summary by a Notre Dame University engineer.........  Here are the 10,535 pages of Obama Care condensed to 4 simple sentences. As humorous as it sounds.....every last word is absolutely TRUE

#1. In order to insure the uninsured, we first have to un-insure the insured.

# 2. Next, we require the newly un-insured to be re-insured.

# 3. To re-insure the newly un-insured, they are required to pay extra charges to be re-insured.

# 4. The extra charges are required so that the original insured, who became un-insured, and then became re-insured, can pay enough extra so that the original un-insured can be insured, so it will be ‘free-of-charge’ to them.

This, ladies and gentlemen, is called "redistribution of wealth" or, by its more common name, SOCIALISM, or
“PROGRESSIVE”, the politically correct names for COMMUNISM.
