Total Solar Eclipse to Cross the USA, August 21st! DON’T MISS IT! I DIDN’T IN JUNE, 1954

Apparently the sun and moon are going to dance together some time around this coming August 21, 2017  It is not an every day occasion when the two meet to fete.

I was an undergraduate student at the University of Minnesota back  in the early 1950s, majoring in geography, minoring in Russian and   all sorts of other studies including geomorphology, astronomy, and Biochemistry then when tuition costs were $35 a quarter.

God blessed us that early A.M. a Saturday more glorious than ever, despite a fifty-fifty chance for clouds and rain…..and NEITHER HAPPENED…not a cloud in the sky at 6AM through the rest of the day.   I had heard about solar eclipses while in high school.  It was a rarity that such  “dances”  ever occurred in  the middle of a metropolitan community.

I didn’t want to miss it, but I didn’t want to go alone.  I easily coaxed my girl friend.  We tried to coax others and landed with six to be ready at six o’clock AM.

Do go!!! Don’t be late!!!  Protect your eyes..( We did….photo film pasted on sun glasses was then recommended.)   We gathered at the top of a hillside facing downtown St. Paul in the eastward distance.   Not a cloud to be seen.  Cool.  Silent except for the morning birds, especially the cardinals and arguments among  viewers nagging me  that this better be good, or else.   Who else would be dumb enough to get up early on a Saturday to see the moon pass in front of the sun.

Yes, the day went dark…not night dark, but darker than you have ever seen morning before breakfast!   Wind stirred, air conditioned cool, birds went silent, dogs howled, shadow attacked the world around everyone.

The collection of it all shut us  into silence and awe despite the brevity of the totality of the real dance.   Confidence in me and my reputation was elevated that morning.   No one thanked anyone for their participating in the show.  I was merely the usher.

The eclipse scheduled for this August 21.   Do go out of your way if you can to be a witness to this, one of the rarest of  amazing astronomical events ever to happen in your lifetime!   Plan for a good setting regardless of the clarity of the day.

Please note that all of the following statements about viewing the eclipse are made with two assumptions: (1) “weather permitting”, and (2) you MUST use special eye protection to look at the sun whenever it is not totally eclipsed! Read more about the important subject of eye safety during eclipses.

Get your eclipse glasses here!
(You HAVE to have them in order to safely watch the partial phases of the eclipse!)

Jane Austen Time

Timeless truths from Jane 
Mark Waldeland sent the following trio of Jane Austen reviews…….now becoming public again in recognition of Ms. Austen’s passing two hundred years ago.

SLANTS Win Their Case at Supreme Court, 8-0

I wonder if ditzie Ruth Bader Ginsburg fell asleep during the decision process.  I cannot imagine her, in her present state of mindlessness,  possessing enough consciousness to remember her own lefthoodedness on such matters.

How did the Democrat  lefty racists manage to battle the SLANTS folk all the way to the Supreme Court?   Are our courts are already that  perverted by the Left?  Well, appartently yes!

Editorial: Win for 1st Amendment

“An Asian-American rock group with an edgy name can now trademark that name thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, which struck a blow for the First Amendment and against federal bureaucrats consumed by political correctness.

In an 8-0 ruling this week, the high court found that the “disparagement clause” used by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office to deny trademark protection for the Oregon-based band The Slants is quite simply unconstitutional.

The band, of course, can call itself anything it wants, but without trademark protection couldn’t safeguard its rights for, say, T-shirts or other items after the patent office found the name offensive. They’ve been fighting this lunatic ruling since 2011…….”   Please read the entire article below regarding this Obama Era racist act:

Killing Trump in the Park for Charity

Establishment fixtures at Fox news this evening reviewed the sins between leftist  murderers, anti anything-American rioters, university staff deviates, gangsters, invaders, Pelosi Ditzies, phony investigations, and Obama’s hate America racists all  of  the violent, corrupt revolutionary LEFT with  Donald J. Trump’s tweets.

Both sides  are supposedly  equally responsible for the life threatening attacks  on America culminating in yesterday’s Bernie Sanders’ political gangster attack upon Republican Congressmen preparing for their traditional annual baseball game against their Democrat rivals.   Let’s all get into bed together was their  general modern verbage to accept  the nine year Obama led illegal Sanctuary Cities dictatorship of some twenty million   ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS,  to perpetuate and hurry up their sexist, racist, leftist, anti democratic, antiJudeoChristian  revolution against our once democratic- republic America financed by BIGGEST BIG BUSINESS, even the very Jewish kind by the way, if truth were allowed to be told.

Opponents were called bigots or worse and told to shut up or the Obamaland will shove a riot down our traditional peaceful American necks.   The criminal Hillary, we were told…..the wealthy, crooked one, would carry out Obamaland’s destiny to begin her era to sabotage  free expression in  the country, beginning January 20, 2017.  The New York Times and Washington Post empires reported so.

And then there arose Our Donald.   By corruption with whatever necessary,  these Leftists deviates of the Democrat Party were no going to allow that to happen.  They own the schools, the press, television news, Biggest Business, blacks, illegal immigrants, and two thirds of the American Jewish population…..the unsynogogued Charles Schumer kind…..How could….did….Queen Hillary lose her fixed election?

“TRUMP DID IT!!    “KILL HIM!”….BUT DON’T USE THE “K” WORD!  BE ARTFUL….TEACH SHAKESPEARE…..GO CLASSIC, BECOME ‘UNIVERSITY’ IN THE PARK!

DON’T LET HIM BECOME PRESIDENT!  HE’LL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!  Just Don’t Let Him Become President! NO MATTER WHAT YOU DO!

Fox Guru, Charles Krauthammer, suggests Donald J. Trump, as President,  is equal  in blame for  the current  contemporary war waged by Democrats in the whole, and Republicans by the half……  because?   the  President tweets!

Mark Waldeland sent the following Shakepeare note regarding a current  New York City in-the-park production of the stage  murder of American President, Donald J. Trump to raise funds for  charity.   Mr. Waldeland is a retired high school English teacher.  He knows great literature when he reads it.

Do get to know your American ObamalingLeftist hateAmerica killertypes  better.   The American press and university program so many of them.

Beethoven at the Weekly Standard

Breaking the Ice with Ludwig van Beethoven

by Gina Dalfonzo  at the Weekly Standard…..article sent by Mark Waldeland:

“Forgive me when you see me draw back when I would gladly mingle with you,” wrote Ludwig van Beethoven in the Heiligenstadt Testament, a letter he addressed to his brothers (and humankind in general) in 1802, but never sent. “My misfortune [deafness] is doubly painful because it must lead to my being misunderstood, for me there can be no recreations in society of my fellows, refined intercourse, mutual exchange of thought, only just as little as the greatest needs command may I mix with society.”

The Heiligenstadt Testament is a well-known document and has been exhaustively studied as one of the clearest windows we have into the composer’s thinking. And yet, Beethoven’s description of himself as a man who wanted “the society of [his] fellows” generally plays little part in the popular conception of him. On the contrary, we tend to remember him as deliberately, fiercely individualistic—an icon for those who prefer to go their own way, unconcernedly leaving the rest of humanity trailing in their wake. In fairness, Beethoven himself contributed considerably to his own reputation with his distinct lack of social graces, including a notorious carelessness about hygiene and a manner that could be abrupt to the point of rudeness. This helps to explain why posterity has tended to gloss over, or even ignore, his expressed longing for companionship. Yet Edward Dusinberre suggests that we shouldn’t, and he brings to the subject the perspective of a musician who has spent his life playing in one of the world’s great string quartets, the Takács. He takes his title from Beethoven’s rejoinder to critics who found his Opus 59 quartets too radical: “They are not for you, but for a later age!”

That might seem to go well with the portrait of Beethoven as an isolated genius against the world. Nonetheless, that’s not the Beethoven that Dusinberre hears after having worked for so many years on his quartets—arguably one of the most social forms of music……..”   Read on, there’s more below:

Hooker Appearer Starts NBC Career in Moscow

Megyn Kelly Returns

by  Daniel John Sobieski  at American Thinker:

Former Fox News star and now NBC darling Megyn Kelly has a new show starting June 4 on the peacock network, appropriately nicknamed considering the prima donna status of its new centerfold, er, centerpiece of NBC. For her first show, she interviewed Russian President Vladimir Putin at an international economic forum in St. Petersburg. NBC released a publicity photo of her sitting with Putin and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Her attire seemed somewhat inappropriate for a past victim of sexual harassment and a self-proclaimed opponent of sexism in politics and the workplace. As Kristinn Taylor noted at Gateway Pundit:

NBC News starlet Megyn Kelly dressed like a hooker for her interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin that is scheduled to air on Sunday. A publicity photo shows Kelly interviewing Putin while wearing a low-cut, off the shoulder blue velvet dress that is slit to mid-thigh, accented by black open-toe shoes with stiletto heels.

Kelly has posed, no pun intended, as a champion of empowered women an opponent of a culture which objectifies women in and out of the workplace. Yet, like Hillary Clinton, who rode her husband’s coattails to political prominence, Kelly has shown no reluctance to put her feminist mindset aside for the sake of her career. Some may know of her claims of harassment from former Fox News chief Roger Ailes, but maybe not that she kept it hidden from public view until she could use it to sell her book, Settle For More. As Kate Scanlon wrote last November in The Blaze:

Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly said Tuesday that she did not come forward sooner with allegations that former Fox News Chairman Roger Ailes sexually harassed her because it would have been a “suicide mission” for her career.

During an interview on ABC’s “Good Morning America” about her new book, “Settle for More,” Kelly said that in the beginning of her career at Fox News Ailes tried to kiss her three times in his office and that when she rejected his advances “he asked me when my contract was up”…

Kelly called Ailes’ actions “disturbing” but said she didn’t immediately come forward because “realistically, that would have been a suicide mission for me and my career.”

“I wasn’t Megyn Kelly of today. I had no power, and he was on the cover of industry magazines as the most powerful man in news,” she said. “There was no one to go to.”

Well, the Megyn Kelly of today remains the same opportunist she was then. Certainly, the first GOP presidential debate on August 6, 2016 was an opportunity she wouldn’t let pass her by. Her question, directed at Donald Trump was incendiary and provocative and, in retrospect, a bit hypocritical:

KELLY: Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don’t use a politician’s filter. However, that is not without its downsides, in particular, when it comes to women.

You’ve called women you don’t like “fat pigs, dogs, slobs, and disgusting animals.”

(LAUGHTER)

Your Twitter account…

TRUMP: Only Rosie O’Donnell.

(LAUGHTER)

KELLY: No, it wasn’t.

(APPLAUSE)

Your Twitter account…

(APPLAUSE)

TRUMP: Thank you.

KELLY: For the record, it was well beyond Rosie O’Donnell.

TRUMP: Yes, I’m sure it was.

KELLY: Your Twitter account has several disparaging comments about women’s looks. You once told a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice it would be a pretty picture to see her on her knees. Does that sound to you like the temperament of a man we should elect as president, and how will you answer the charge from Hillary Clinton, who was likely to be the Democratic nominee, that you are part of the war on women?………”
