Koch Brothers Vow Re-Election Funds for Republicans Who Vote Against GOP Health Care Bill

In a last-minute effort to sink the Republican health care bill, a powerful network of conservative donors said Wednesday it would create a new fund for Republican 2018 reelection races — but they’ll only open it up to GOPers who vote against the bill.

The advocacy groups helmed by Charles and David Koch have unveiled a new pool of money for advertisements, field programs and mailings that would exclude those who vote for the health care bill they oppose on Thursday. The effort, which they described as worth millions of dollars, is an explicit warning to on-the-fence Republicans from one of the most influential players in electoral politics not to cross them.

The Koch-aligned networks oppose the bill because they think it does not do enough to scale back former President Barack Obama’s health care policies.
“We want to make certain that lawmakers understand the policy consequences of voting for a law that keeps Obamacare intact,” Americans for Prosperity president Tim Phillips said. “We have a history of following up and holding politicians accountable, but we will also be there to support and thank the champions who stand strong and keep their promise.”

The vote is not a litmus test: Other money and resources would still be available to Republicans who do not vote with the network, formally called the Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce. But those who vote with the network will have access to more.

The vote in the House is expected Thursday, though more than 20 Republicans had said as of late Wednesday that they planned to vote against it, which would kill the legislation. President Donald Trump and his allies in the House have been frantically whipping as many last-minute votes as they can, and Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows showed openness to working with the White House late Wednesday.

The Kochs typically support Republican congressional candidates in competitive races, though they have withheld their volunteers and advertising in the past when they felt snubbed by a particular candidate, such as Kelly Ayotte, the New Hampshire senator who lost her reelection battle in 2016 and did not receive Koch funding for much of the race.

The network has also grown increasingly comfortable with wading into Republican primaries. Network donors have been skittish about advertising against GOP candidates in the past, though Koch officials said last year that they were inching in that direction and to expect more primary fights in the future.

The Koch network has tiptoed toward confrontation with Trump in the opening months of his presidency. More ideologically pure than the deal-making White House, they have been critical of his travel bans and have been uneasy with a support for protectionism, but have spent some of their sums to boost Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch and have applauded his attempts to scale back federal regulations.

The group of high-powered donors plans to spend between $300 million and $400 million on political projects over the 2018 cycle.

I think you will find this intriguing...

Very Interesting scandal in our government... This can of worms goes back for years: 

The Snake Pit has no bottom!!! A breaking development in Barack Obama's wiretapping scandal has uncovered 3 judges who cooperated with Obama, the Clintons, and the FBI to sabotage President Donald Trump's campaign, adding them to the list of corrupt government officials. The warrant obtained from the treasonous judges was used to carry out surveillance on Trump, but it gets much worse as the secret that these judges tried to hide is made public. In order to truly appreciate the impact of this new bombshell in the Obama wiretapping scandal, it is necessary for us to name these Unites States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC, also called FISA Court) judges and discuss a little history about them. Judge William Curtis Bryson was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review on September 29, 1994, to replace Howard Thomas Markey who vacated his seat on April 30, 1991. Bryson assumed senior status to the 3 judge panel on January 7, 2013. Jose A. Cabranes was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review on August 10, 1994, to replace Richard J. Cardamone who vacated his seat on November 13, 1993. Richard C. Tallman was appointed to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review on May 25, 2000, to replace Betty Binns Fletcher who vacated her seat on November 1, 1998. A quick review of the appointment dates listed for each of these judges reveals one thing. All three of these judges were hand-picked and appointed by none other than former President William J. Clinton. These men were placed in positions of power for a very specific reason by the Clinton crime family. According to The Gateway Pundit, Obama was first denied a warrant to wiretap four members of Trump's campaign staff by the FISA Court. Shortly thereafter, Obama's administration submitted a request for an appeal to this 3 panel Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, conveniently made up of Bill Clinton appointees, and the fix was in. Obama succeeded with this crucial step in monitoring the opposing party during the most sacred election in our country. This is treason. Barack Obama obtained the wiretap to spy and then share the information obtained from surveillance on the competing campaign with Hillary Clinton. His administration fabricated a story about a link to a Russian-backed bank as justification for the warrant. This scandal is breaking wide open, and it's far worse than anyone could have imagined. The tremendous disappointment and outrage that American patriots feel, as a result of finding out that even our highest level of judiciary government officials conspired against Trump, is beyond the ability that words can describe. The fight has just begun, and America is truly in peril at the hands of deep-rooted evildoers within our government. The importance of spreading this information cannot be emphasized enough. People suffer and perish for a lack of understanding, and it is far past time for Americans to understand exactly how dangerous our situation has become. Please do not let these corrupt judges go unmentioned in your next conversation about our country's struggle against progressivism. Share this information with others as best you can. s-obama-wiretap/  A breaking development in Barack Obama's wiretapping scandal has uncovered 3 judges who cooperated with Obama, the Clintons, and the FBI to sabotage President Donald Trump's campaign, adding them to the list of corrupt government officials.

The White House Leak Was Just Discovered And Look Who It Is!!!


Anonymous: Hillary Clinton Spy Ring Unravels As President Trump Orders A...

Wisconsin Bill Would Allow Hidden Weapons Without License

Hidden handguns could be legally carried without a license in Wisconsin under a far-reaching Republican-backed proposal unveiled Tuesday.

Texas lawmakers consider controversial plan for gun owners to carry guns without permits

Despite law enforcement concerns, Texans could be allowed to carry firearms concealed or openly without a permit or safety training under a proposal considered by the state House on Tuesday.

State Rep. Jonathan Stickland, R-Bedford, said this measure known as Constitutional Carry would once and for all fully restore Texans’ Second Amendment rights.

“This is a big day for many Texans,” said Stickland, who authored the bill more than a dozen lawmakers have signed on to, including state Reps. Matt Krause, R-Fort Worth, Tony Tinderholt, R-Arlington, and Bill Zedler, R-Arlington. “Texans are sick of big government. They are sick of wondering if their rights are always disappearing.”

But it’s unclear how far the proposal will fare in the House or the Senate. It faces numerous hurdles before it would become law.

More than 320 people signed up to weigh in on the issue before the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee and more than 75,000 petitions supporting the measure were presented.

As law enforcers and others said they worry about the proposal, Stickland and supporters said it’s time Texas joins the other 11 states that don’t require gun owners to fill out an application, take gun training and pay a permit fee before carrying their handguns publicly.

“I don’t think the government has a right to say you have a Second Amendment right only if you take this class and pay this fee,” Stickland said. “Right now there is no way for us to legally carry without begging the government for permission.”

But some worry that this proposal opens the door for felons and Texans with mental issues to end up carrying handguns in public, since the bill restricts peace officers from asking people if they are legally carrying.

“We are opposed to this,” said Andrea Brauer, executive director of Texas Gun Sense, a group that pushes for gun control measures. “Training shouldn’t be optional. Licensing shouldn’t be optional. With this bill, anybody can carry with absolutely no oversight.

“It really puts public safety at risk.”
As for arguments that this is a God-given right, Brauer said she and others at Texans Gun Sense “don’t know God’s position on this bill.”
Doc Green, a radio show host, disagreed.

He said the reason he supports the proposal is “because the Lord Jesus Chris is my God ... [and] He said very clearly in Luke 22 that he values the ability to defend yourself.”

Krause said before the hearing that concern about the wrong people carrying guns exists now, without Constitutional Carry.

“We’ve seen time and time again that if prohibitions to getting guns were a deterrent to felons, then Chicago would be the safest city in the world,” he said. “I don’t think felons are going to say, ‘Oh, now I can carry guns. That’s great.’
“Felons are going to carry guns, laws or not.”

Mixed opinions

Stickland proposed a bill allowing Constitutional Carry in 2015, but it was overshadowed by two proposals that did pass, one allowing Texans to openly carry handguns in most areas of the state and the other allowing concealed handguns on some college campuses.

Stickland said House Bill 375 doesn’t expand who can carry a gun, or where they can carry a gun, and it doesn’t get rid of the License to Carry. It makes the license an option, instead of mandatory, which, he said, means that it shouldn’t shrink state revenue. Many gun owners likely will continue to renew their permits even with this law because of the reciprocity allowed with other states.

He did say it would mean that Texans, who may possess guns at age 18 but can’t carry them until they are 21, would be able to carry them — without licenses — at 18 in many areas, including college campuses.

The legislative session runs through May 29.
Peace officers, including those representing the Dallas County Sheriff’s Department and the Houston Police Department, were quick to oppose the bill.
“What we have on the books right now, we are still getting used to,” said Deputy Deborah Bell, a Dallas sheriff’s spokeswoman.

She said Dallas Sheriff Lupe Valdez supports the Second Amendment and believes everyone has a right to bear arms.

But this bill, Bell said, “seeks to take away some of our abilities to (protect the public) effectively” because without licenses, police can’t determine who is legally and illegally carrying guns.

The League of Women Voters and Moms Demand Action were among the other groups opposing the bill.

Others — including Dudley Brown, president of the National Association for Gun Rights, and members of Lone Star Gun Rights, who helped bring in petitions supporting the bill — disagree.

“We think it empowers citizens,” he said.
“Let’s pass this bill out of committee as soon as possible,” Stickland urged the committee. “It is the right thing to do. It is the constitutional thing to do.”
Many say it won’t be an easy task to make Constitutional Carry law.

“Imagine, no more being fingerprinted like a common criminal, having to pass a test, and pay a tax just to carry your firearm for self-defense as a law-abiding citizen,” Byron Schirmbeck, state coordinator for the Texas Campaign for Liberty, wrote in an email to supporters recently. “After all, there is no tax, permit, or test for your First Amendment rights.”

He warned supporters that shepherding this bill through the Legislature wouldn’t be easy.

“Anti-gun special interest groups — and even weak-kneed Republicans who are afraid of freedom — will do anything they can to prevent this from coming to a vote.”

Controversial moments

A few moments stood out during the hours-long committee hearing.
Several people linked their inability to carry guns without first getting a state permit to slavery. About three hours into the hearing, state Rep. Jarvis D. Johnson, a Houston Democrat, responded.

“We all live by laws in the United States,” Johnson said. “A slave would not have the opportunity to protest his ideology before this body. … A slave couldn’t do anything.

I take it as an insult when you try to compare your constitutional right to carry a gun to involuntary slave hood. State Rep. Jarvis D. Johnson, D-Houston
“I take it as an insult when you try to compare your constitutional right to carry a gun to involuntary slavehood,” he said. “I would prefer to limit your comparison to a law we all have to live by — you and I — no matter what our skin color is.”

Kory Watkins, who two years ago drew attention for a posting a video online some said threatened the safety of some lawmakers and for a dust-up with state Rep. Poncho Nevarez, D-Eagle Pass, over gun proposals, drew attention for his testimony as well Tuesday.

Nevarez is a member of the committee listening to the testimony.
“We have a right that is guaranteed to us by our creator and protected by the constitution,” said Watkins, who has been a leader of Tarrant County Open Carry. “I find it kind of crazy I can walk around with my [loaded] AK-47 … but I can’t simply put a Glock 19 on my hip to walk around” without first getting a permit.

Nevarez said he agreed with Watkins, that it’s crazy he can walk around with an AK-47.

Other gun issues

Constitutional Carry is among several gun measures ricocheting through the Texas Capitol.

On Tuesday, the House committee unanimously approved a committee substitute to HB 300, which would slash the cost of getting a license to carry a handgun from $140 to $40 for first-time licensees and from $70 to $40 for annual renewals. The full Senate on Monday approved a companion bill.

Supporters said this fee cut was needed because only two states — Illinois and Arkansas — have more costly fees for licenses to carry. Opponents say shrinking this fee will cost the state around $15 million, which could cause money woes in an already tight budget yet

The committee also approved HB 131 by Krause, exempting the intrastate manufacture of a firearm, accessories and ammunition from federal regulation, which includes registration.

And the committee also considered a measure similar to Stickland’s, House Bill 1911 by state Rep. James White, R-Hillister.

White maintains the state already has constitutional carry regarding rifles and other long arms. Now he wants the same status for handguns.

“Whether licensed or unlicensed or a possessor of a pistol, revolver or a rifle, the eligibility requirements should be the same,” White has said.

A Senate committee has also given early approval to SB 263, which removes the stipulation that a .32-caliber or higher handgun be used for the state’s shooting proficiency test.

Rogue Sabre --- Truth and Lies, Land and Sea

By Anna Von Reitz

In our present condition it is impossible for us to know the whole truth about anything.  That’s why nobody should ever take the oath to “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth”.  We can’t know the whole truth, so we can’t speak the whole truth, either. 

And if we can’t speak it, forget writing it down.

Truth is absolute in that there is a total truth that is factual, and yet, the best we can do is subjectively experience it.  No two people see the truth exactly the same way, because we see it through our own unique lens of life and being.

At best, as more honest people experience the truth and share what they perceive, we can hope to get a closer approximation of it and a more informed opinion about it.

Our ancestors fully realized that all names are fictional. 

There is a woman we call “Anna”, but “Anna” is not the woman.  You could just as well call the same woman “Emily” or “Ruth”.   There is a piece of land called “Bavaria” but you could just as well call it “Schwarzwalderland”.
This is the eternal truth behind the famous line, “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet.”  It turns out that it really doesn’t matter what you call me, as long as it’s not Late for Supper.

This circumstantial dilemma of being compelled to represent actual fact--- a woman or a piece of land or a tree--- with a fictional name--- is a real pain in the logic sensors. And, as it turns out, it opens up endless conflicts and opportunities for fraud and graft.  

Names are intrinsically imprecise and arbitrary and dishonest.  At some level, we all know that, but we continue to use names because we need a means to identify and categorize things in the world around us. 

We couldn’t communicate about anything outside our immediate surroundings otherwise. It would be impossible to reference “Bob Johnston in Baltimore” or talk about something that happened “the day before yesterday” much less project our thoughts into the future.  

It would not be possible for me to convey the thought of a “cedar tree draped in snow” to you, except that we both accept a name for “cedar tree” and “snow” and have a common concept of what it means to “drape” something.

Are misunderstandings possible with such a system?  They are unavoidable.

What if “cedar tree” in my language means “maple sugar” in yours? 

What if I am talking about “Baltimore, Maryland” and you are talking about “Baltimore, Oregon”?

To improve upon this situation somewhat our ancestors took up the practice of using what are called “descriptive names” or “Lawful names” as opposed to “Legal names”. 

Instead of using a simple fiction like “Anna Maria Riezinger” to stand for me and my immediate patrilineal ancestors, you might say, “Anna Maria, the daughter of Emmett and LaVera, of the House Riezinger, born in the town of Black River Falls, in Adams Township, in Jackson County, in Wisconsin, one of the United States of America,  in the white two-story farmhouse standing on the north side of the confluence of Levis Creek and the Black River, two minutes before midnight on the 6th of June in the Anno Domini year of 1956. 

With each tidbit of descriptive information you hone in closer to the target, making it less and less likely that this “Anna Maria Riezinger” could be mistaken for any other “Anna Maria Riezinger”, but this is also very cumbersome and still imperfect.
There are 72 names of God in the Bible, each one describing a different attribute of our Father, and it still does not come close. 

So we are imperfect beings with imperfect means.

We should probably just let it go with that, but we don’t. 

Instead, we pretend to be able to know things we can’t know and do things we can’t do.

This in turn gives rise to much of the false pride, conflict, and confusion in our world.

It doesn’t matter if you call something “Unity States of the World” or “United States of America” or “Buckwheat Fields of Mars”.  It’s all equally fictitious.

If you try to describe what you mean by these names by saying, “the forty-eight contiguous land jurisdiction states plus the land jurisdiction states of Alaska and Hawaii” or “the fifty-seven inchoate Territorial states” or "all the Buckwheat fields on the planet Mars" ---- it is only nominally better.

Now Russell-Jay:Gould and David-Wynn:Miller have noticed the mathematical fact that three is an uneven number and that our grammar is not correct.  They have used this to overturn all sorts of contracts.  I say, bully for them. 

But then, they turn right around and try to make new contracts. They claim that if they just correct the grammar and get that right,  the new contracts they make will be valid and their meaning will be certain.

Not so. 

The discovery that all contracts are invalid is not new, and it’s not just because of faulty grammar.

Show me someone who knows for sure where he is going to be and what financial condition he is going to be in thirty years from now and I will show you someone competent to sign a mortgage contract. 
Poof!  There went the whole mortgage and foreclosure machine right out the door. 
There isn’t a competent mortgage signatory on planet Earth, and we all have cause to know it.   

Not only is our grammar fraudulent, we are incompetent to sign contracts, and whether we use legal names which are pure fiction or we use descriptions, we can’t actually identify parties to contracts, either.

We don’t even know where we are or what time it is.  Literally.

Naming a street or giving a house a numbered address is just as gratuitous and arbitrary as naming a stuffed doll “Polly” or a dog “Fido”.  What makes this “2390 South Park Road” and not “1637 Birch Street”?  

I’ll tell you that in the local case, it’s a middle-aged woman driving around in a cheap car arbitrarily assigning street names and addresses for a foreign corporation calling itself the Matanuska-Susitna Borough. 

So what?  It’s my land and house.  What if I want to call it “Spruce House 0606”?

Obviously, there is a misunderstanding about where I and my property are located, the name of the place, and the number associated with it.  

Who gave the “Matanuska-Susitna Borough” (which is who and what exactly?) any right to locate, identify, or put a name or a number on my house and land parcel? I didn’t. Did you? 

Come to that, what kind of a map are they using?  Old Mercator, New Mercator, GPS coordinates, Metes and Bounds or WTG or WTF? 

You see, we don’t know where we are, we just pretend to know according to some system we dream up based on this or that organizational scheme---- and then we write up contracts based on things we don’t know and can’t know and pretend for the sake of argument that this process results in “valid and binding contracts” that don’t exist and can’t exist by definition.

Then we always date these things and pretend that we know what time it is, too.  Are you using the Hebrew calendar, the Gregorian calendar, the Julian calendar, the Universal Time calendar, or the Eskimo Dog Fur calendar?

I rest my case. 

The fact is that our fundamental limitations render contracts of all kinds invalid.  It’s not just the grammar that is screw ball.  It’s the entire concept. 

The sooner we realize this, the sooner we can put a lot of scam artists and people who make fat livings off this bull poopy out of business.  Lord hasten the day.

I applaud Russell-Jay:Gould and David-Wynn:Miller for being awake and trying to introduce some standard of sanity and logic, but they haven’t followed the logic chain far enough. 

Rewriting the original Constitution in Parse Syntax after registering it (and giving up ownership interest in Parse Syntax to whatever entity registered it) and then copyrighting Parse Syntax (exactly who or what is competent to grant a copyright?) and then claiming that you have now created a valid Constitution by translating the document using Parse Syntax grammar--- is silly.   

It’s wonderful, but it is silly.

Well-intentioned as it is, it is just another process of enclosure, not that much different from what the lawyers did back in 1868 by “adopting” the Constitution as the basis of their articles of incorporation for The United States of America, Inc. and then the United States of America, Inc. and then the United States, Inc. and then the United States of America E Pluribus Unum, Inc. and then E Pluribus Unum the United States of America, Inc. and… infinitum.  

We’ve been there and done that and don’t need to go again.   

Whatever the governmental services corporation holding up the federal side of the services agreement calls itself is immaterial.  However it structures itself is immaterial.  Whether it uses Parse Syntax or speaks in Swahili or uses Esperante is immaterial, too.

17 Inches - Don't widen the plate!


In Nashville, Tennessee during the first week of January 1996 more than 4,000 baseball coaches descended upon the Opryland Hotel for the 52nd annual ABCA's convention. 
While I waited in line to register with the hotel staff, I heard other more veteran coaches rumbling about the lineup of speakers scheduled to present during the weekend. One name, in particular, kept resurfacing, always with the same sentiment — “John Scolinos is here? Oh, man, worth every penny of my airfare.” 
Who is John Scolinos, I wondered. No matter! I was just happy to be there. 
In 1996 Coach Scolinos was 78 years old and five years retired from a college coaching career that began in 1948. He shuffled to the stage to an impressive standing ovation, wearing dark polyester pants, a light blue shirt, and a string around his neck from which home plate hung — a full-sized, stark-white home plate. 
Seriously, I wondered, who is this guy? 
After speaking for twenty-five minutes, not once mentioning the prop hanging around his neck, Coach Scolinos appeared to notice the snickering among some of the coaches. Even those who knew Coach Scolinos had to wonder exactly where he was going with this, or if he had simply forgotten about home plate since he’d gotten on stage. Then, finally ...“You’re probably all wondering why I’m wearing home plate around my neck?” he said, his voice growing irascible. I laughed along with the others, acknowledging the possibility.  “I may be old, but I’m not crazy. The reason I stand before you today is to share with you baseball people what I’ve learned in my life, what I’ve learned about home plate in my 78 years.” 
Several hands went up when Scolinos asked how many Little League coaches were in the room. “Do you know how wide home plate is in Little League?” 
After a pause, someone offered, “Seventeen inches?” more of a question than answer. 
“That’s right,” he said. “How about in Babe Ruth’s day? Any Babe Ruth coaches in the house?” Another long pause.   
“Seventeen inches?” a guess from another reluctant coach. 
“That’s right,” said Scolinos. “Now, how many high school coaches do we have in the room?” Hundreds of hands shot up as the pattern began to appear. “How wide is home plate in high school baseball?”   
“Seventeen inches,” they said, sounding more confident. 
“You’re right!” Scolinos barked. “And you college coaches, how wide is home plate in college?”   
“Seventeen inches!” we said in unison.   
“Any Minor League coaches here? How wide is home plate in pro ball?”............“Seventeen inches!”   
“RIGHT! And in the Major Leagues, how wide home plate is in the Major Leagues? 
“Seventeen inches!” 
“SEV-EN-TEEN INCHES!” he confirmed, his voice bellowing off the walls. “And what do they do with a Big League pitcher who can’t throw the ball over seventeen inches?” Pause. “They send him to Pocatello!” he hollered, drawing raucous laughter. 
“What they don’t do is this: they don’t say, ‘Ah, that’s okay, Jimmy. You can’t hit a seventeen inch target? We’ll make it eighteen inches or nineteen inches.  We’ll make it twenty inches so you have a better chance of hitting it. If you can’t hit that, let us know so we can make it wider still, say twenty-five inches.'” Pause. 
“Coaches...” pause, "... what do we do when our best player shows up late to practice? When our team rules forbid facial hair and a guy shows up unshaven? What if he gets caught drinking? Do we hold him accountable? Or do we change the rules to fit him? Do we widen home plate? The chuckles gradually faded as four thousand coaches grew quiet, the fog lifting as the old coach’s message began to unfold. 
He turned the plate toward himself and, using a Sharpie, began to draw something. When he turned it toward the crowd, point up, a house was revealed, complete with a freshly drawn door and two windows. 
“This is the problem in our homes today. With our marriages, with the way we parent our kids. With our discipline. We don’t teach accountability to our kids, and there is no consequence for failing to meet standards. We widen the plate!” 
Pause. Then, to the point at the top of the house he added a small American flag. “This is the problem in our schools today. The quality of our education is going downhill fast and teachers have been stripped of the tools they need to be successful, and to educate and discipline our young people. We are allowing others to widen home plate! Where is that getting us?”   
Silence. He replaced the flag with a Cross. “And this is the problem in the Church, where powerful people in positions of authority have taken advantage of young children, only to have such an atrocity swept under the rug for years. Our church leaders are widening home plate for themselves!  
And we allow it.” 
“And the same is true with our government. Our so called representatives make rules for us that don’t apply to themselves. They take bribes from lobbyists and foreign countries. They no longer serve us. And we allow them to widen home plate and we see our country falling into a dark abyss while we watch.” 
I was amazed. At a baseball convention where I expected to learn something about curve balls and bunting and how to run better practices, I had learned something far more valuable. 
From an old man with home plate strung around his neck, I had learned something about life, about myself, about my own weaknesses and about my responsibilities as a leader. I had to hold myself and others accountable to that which I knew to be right, lest our families, our faith, and our society continue down an undesirable path. 
“If I am lucky,” Coach Scolinos concluded, “you will remember one thing from this old coach today. It is this: if we fail to hold ourselves to a higher standard, a standard of what we know to be right; if we fail to hold our spouses and our children to the same standards, if we are unwilling or unable to provide a consequence when they do not meet the standard; and if our schools & churches & our government fail to hold themselves accountable to those they serve, there is but one thing to look forward to.   
With that, he held home plate in front of his chest, turned it around, and revealed its dark black backside, “... dark days ahead.”   
Coach Scolinos died in 2009 at the age of 91, but not before touching the lives of hundreds of players and coaches, including mine. Meeting him at my first ABCA convention kept me returning year after year, looking for similar wisdom and inspiration from other coaches. He is the best clinic speaker the ABCA has ever known because he was so much more than a baseball coach. His message was clear: “Coaches, keep your players—no matter how good they are—your own children, your churches, your government, and most of all, keep yourself at seventeen inches." 
And this, my friends, is what our country has become and what is wrong with it today, and how to fix it. 
"Don't widen the plate."
