What will the world look like in the next 30 years? The exciting new documentaries the “World’s Future Megaprojects” seeks answers as it examines “ambitious” initiatives that may forever “alter” societies around the globe.

Each of these projects harbor a hefty price tag, but government and private industry has joined to bring them into fruition. In our age of modern technology and inter-connectivity, we’re only limited by our imagination. It’s difficult to despair over the future of our species while watching these initiatives take shape.

America’s Most Expensive Megaprojects

Incredible constructions that cost billions. The U.S. certainly doesn’t do its megaprojects by halves. From icons such as the Golden Gate Bridge and Empire State Building, to gargantuan infrastructure wonders such as the Alaskan Highway or Transcontinental Railroad, we reveal the country’s most expensive public and private works of all time, and how much they would cost in today’s dollars. Keep Watching as we reveal the priciest U.S. megaprojects of all time.

China’s Future MEGAPROJECTS (2016-2050’s)

China is embracing megaprojects at an unprecedented rate and will – over the course of a few decades – complete a phase of infrastructure that will rival what the United States has built in its entire history.

Donald Trump “tweeted” how New Years 2017/2018 could be the “coldest” on record…

Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren of Massachusetts “responded” to President Donald Trump’s Thursday tweet, in which he questioned the concept of “global” warming, by announcing that she “believes in science…”

… only to be questioned “relentlessly” on how exactly her “scientific belief” applies to issues like “abortion or her supposed Native American ancestry.”

GOP U.S. Senate candidate V.A. Shiva Ayyadurai sent Warren a fully paid DNA test kit from “23&Me” through Amazon to see if she is willing to back up her claims of “Native American” heritage.

When Warren “did not accept” Ayyadurai’s gift, Ayyadurai posted a receipt on Twitter of his “refunded” purchase and wrote that he was “deeply saddened” the progressive Massachusetts senator did not accept his “thoughtful birthday gift.”

Here is a science “Cookbook” collection of “The Best of Every Dish” created by Senator Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren…

Boobs or Balls

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on January 6, 2018 by andelino

Prude CNN host Brooke Baldwin was nearly in “tears” a couple months ago when guest Clay Travis repeatedly said he liked the “first amendment” and “boobs” while on her show.

Baldwin laughed and said, “I just want to make sure I heard you correctly as a woman anchoring this show. What did you just say, you believe in the first amendment and ‘b-o-o-b-s?’” ?

When Travis doubled down on his “love” of boobs, Baldwin was “outraged.”

After declaring the conversation “over,” Baldwin said the talk was “entirely inappropriate.”

Fast forward, at the “2017 New Years Eve” coverage, she didn’t have a problem bringing up “balls” during the inane banter with fellow host Don Lemon.

After thanking the New Orleans venue for hosting the “news” network, slightly drank Baldwin told Lemon, “By the way, my balls are bigger than your balls.”

“Probably,” Lemon responded.

Question: How did Brooke knew the size of Lemon’s balls?
Answer: She munched on them earlier in the evening.

Demeaning men has “consequences.” Baldwin would get real upset at the “I love boobies” shirts at the cancer walk last fall.

Squeeze a boob, save a life
Big or small, squeeze them all
Say boobies and offend a libtard
Who has double standards.

I personally like “boobs” on women, “balls” not so much.

Europe’s Strongman

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , on January 4, 2018 by andelino

Even Westerners are tired of the political correctness, the consensus-building, the bureaucrats and the establishment. The British voted to leave the super-bureaucracy of the European Union. Americans elected their first-ever president who has no prior political or military experience—a complete rejection of the establishment—based on promises to put “America first” and “make America great again.”

European nations are now voting for stronger, more patriotic nationalists: Hungary’s Viktor Orbán, Poland’s Jarosław Kaczyński, Austria’s Sebastian Kurz and the Czech Republic’s Andrej Babiš.

European Union bureaucrats are struggling to deal with a new type of leader. He is not sophisticated, multicultural and managerial. He is not soft, consensus-building and wary of giving offense. He is strong. He is patriotic. He is decisive. He is everything the European Commission in Brussels is not. European bureaucrats hate him. Yet this type of leader is emerging in country after country. Whether bureaucrats like it or not, these strongmen are Europe’s future.

Hungary has been the trailblazer for this trend. Viktor Orbán first became prime minister from 1998 to 2002. But it’s his second incarnation that is more significant. In 2010, in the midst of a global financial crisis, he led his Fidesz party to an overwhelming victory.

His method of governing has become the standard strongman template—the comparison used to judge Europe’s other strong leaders.

Orbán’s guiding principle is simple: Hungary first. He pursues his country’s national interest and pays little lip service to the European Union, consensus-building and multi-lateralism. Orbán was putting Hungary first long before Donald Trump came along. The EU encourages its member countries to share the burden, to all join in and accept migrants, suffering individually for the greater good. Orbán is having none of it. “To defend borders is a national responsibility,” he said last June. “As a state, you have to protect your own borders. I don’t believe in a European solution.”

Orbán has also concentrated political power in his office. He bluntly called checks and balances “a U.S. invention” that doesn’t work in Europe. This isn’t just talk: “He has pushed through changes to the Hungarian Constitution to remove restrictions on his power over the rest of the government.”

He also increased the government’s power over Hungary’s people. He has driven out foreign businesses and re-nationalized a host of industries including natural gas, electricity, pension funds, water, recycling and many banks.

Orbán has also shifted his politics to the right, borrowing ideas and language from Hungary’s far-right Jobbik party.

He is one of Europe’s most outspoken Christian leaders. He talks about “creating a Christian Hungary within a Christian Europe.” His opposition to immigration stems from this Christian identity. In 2015, he said with characteristic bluntness, “I think we have a right to decide that we do not want a large number of Muslim people in our country.”

Orbán calls for a new style of government. In his most famous speech, given in July 2014, he said, “The new state that we are constructing in Hungary is an illiberal state, a non-liberal state. It does not reject the fundamental principles of liberalism such as freedom, and I could list a few more, but it does not make this ideology the central element of state organization, but instead includes a different, special, national approach.”

In his book Orbán: Europe’s New Strongman, Paul Lendvai said Orbán is creating “Hungary’s Führer Democracy.” “After seven continuous years of Fidesz rule and in light of all opinion polls, even Viktor Orbán’s fiercest critics concede that at the age of 53, his position appears impregnable,” he writes. “His unlimited personal power is virtually unchallenged within Hungary, nor is it under threat from the EU.”

Leftists around the world hate what he is doing, and this colors much of their coverage of him. There is a lot of hypocrisy in this reporting. In just about every Western nation, the left fill government jobs with people who agree with them. When Orbán does the same, the left screams blue murder.

It is important to note, though, that few are accusing Orbán of being undemocratic. The fact is, his approach is popular. When times are tough, most are happy with a little less liberty and a little more strength. Too often people look at Orbán through the lens of their own personal ideology. But both sides can agree that Orbán represents a new kind of “strongman democracy.” The historical connotations in the phrase “führer democracy” are unfair. But aside from that, it is a good description of the new Hungary-first regime that Viktor Orbán is building.

Jarosław Kaczyński, along with his twin brother Lech, is another key founder of this new movement.

In 2001 the two of them co-founded the Law and Justice Party in Poland. Jarosław was in power from July 2006 to November 2007, before his party lost its majority in parliament.

They won again in 2015, becoming the first party to win an outright majority in Poland’s post-Communist history. The party now holds both the presidency and prime minister ship.

Kaczyński himself holds neither of these positions; he merely leads the party. Yet as the Guardian noted in 2016, “President Andrzej Duda and Prime Minister Beata Szydło are entirely beholden to his patronage.” The Financial Times and Deutsche Welle called him “the most powerful man in Poland.” He is often referred to as the real power behind the throne.

Poles know Kaczyński’s power over the government, and many put their hope in him personally. One common chant at his rallies is “Jarosław save us.”

Kaczyński has moved to reduce checks and balances on the executive branch, to curtail the power of the judges. He also managed to take control of Poland’s public broadcaster from leftists.

His party’s approach is similar to Viktor Orbán’s. His party calls for a “Fourth Republic” to replace Poland’s current system of government. In fact, Kaczyński once openly said he aimed to “bring Budapest to Warsaw”—a promise to copy Orbán’s strategies.

Kaczyński also has the same Christian values. “We want to restore a moral order,” he said. In May 2017, Polish Interior Minister Mariusz Błaszczak said that the presence of the largely Muslim refugee population is a “ticking bomb” in Europe.

Like Orbán, Kaczyński is subject to hysterical criticism from leftists everywhere. And also like Orbán, there’s little or no evidence he is being undemocratic: Many Poles support his consolidation of power, and he is not accused of interfering in elections. Nevertheless, he is a new kind of European leader: “a strongman who puts Poland first.”

In October, new members were inducted into the Strongman Club, including Sebastian Kurz. This 31-year-old wunderkind won Austria’s national elections on October 15 and is working to form a governing coalition.

As of this writing, he has not yet spent his first day in office at the Federal Chancellery, but he already has considerable power due to his election and his authority within his party. When Austrian People’s Party offered him the chairmanship in May, he set conditions. He would only take over if he was granted unprecedented personal authority. He would have power to appoint all the ministers and to nominate candidates for parliament—even if they were from a different party. His party agreed, and he almost single-handedly led them to victory.

In fact, candidates did not stand for the “Austrian People’s Party”; they were on the ballot as members of “Sebastian Kurz’s list.” The new administration will clearly be indebted to Kurz personally.

The European said Kurz was “like a Ferrari among politicians.” Other media call him the “Danube messiah.”

Serving as foreign minister before the election, Kurz almost single-handedly reduced the impact of the migrant crisis. In February 2016, he helped organize the Balkan states to block refugees traveling from Greece and Turkey toward Austria.

Kurz’s manifesto called for a crackdown on “political Islam” and immigration. The Freedom Party of Austria, his likely coalition partner, goes even further, saying that “Islam has no place” in Austria. The platform is clear—and popular: “Austria first.”

Robert Fico is the strongman of Slovakia. He has been the country’s prime minister since 2006 except for a two-year period from 2010 to 2012.

He does not fit on this list quite as comfortably as the others. He is a leftist, but is unafraid of working with the far right. More importantly, he is a nationalist.

His nationalism drives him to stand up to Brussels. And he has become one of Europe’s most outspoken critics of Islam and Muslim refugees. In May 2016, he said, “I do not want to see a Muslim community in Slovakia …. We do not want to change the traditions of this country, which are built on the Christian tradition.”

“Islam has no place in Slovakia,” he said. “Slovakia first.”

The second new inductee to the Strongman Club, Andrej Babiš, won the national election in the Czech Republic on October 22 with almost 30 percent of the vote. His nearest rival won only 11 percent.

Like the other strongmen, Babiš ran on an anti establishment ticket as the leader of the ano party, which is only six years old. “ano” means “yes” in Czech and is also the acronym for Action of Dissatisfied Citizens. Czechs said yes to overthrowing the establishment, empowering a newcomer party with Babiš at the head.

How will Babiš exercise his new power? He has indicated that he wants to dismantle the Czech Republic’s checks and balances, and to abolish the senate and regional government. His platform focused on opposing immigration and reducing European Union influence over Czech affairs. It also focused on him. The BBC’s Rob Cameron wrote, “His message to voters—that he alone could heal the ills of the Czech political and economic system, that he alone could decapitate the hydra of corruption, that he alone could defend Czech national interests—appears to have been heard. They have given him a convincing mandate. He has truly crushed his rivals” (Oct. 22, 2017).

Like many others on this list of strongmen, Babiš openly admires Viktor Orbán. While Orbán puts Hungary first, Babiš will put the Czech Republic first.

Notice that these men have “one mind.” They think alike. These leaders have the same worldview, but they still represent nations with their own national interests.

Countries across Europe want strongmen. Men with personal charisma and personal power are taking office. Voters are willing to hand these men unprecedented authority. And these men want to combine into a regional grouping of like-minded leaders.

Year of the Fire Dog

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , on January 2, 2018 by andelino

A word of advice to progressives: when you see angels with trumpets…do not think “apocalypse.” Rather think “Hallelujah.”

It is , after all, the year of the TRUMP-et.

2018 is also the “Year of the Dog” in the Chinese New Year which begins on February. And guess who is a big “fire” Dog: Donald Trump! And that’s a good thing.

Chinese play tribute to The Donald in the Year of the Dog with this giant statue

Born in 1946, Donald Trump was born in the year of the Dog—the “Fire Dog” to be specific—according to the Chinese horoscope.

It is believed that the “Fire Dog” is naturally charismatic and easily attracts attention.

Ya’ think?

At the beginning of 2017 Chinese astrologers reading President Trump’s “Rooster Year Four Pillars” chart determined him to be an Earth person and predicted that he would be doing things differently.

As the Rooster carries a metal element which represents expression and creativity they also predicted that Trump, being an Earth persona, might have a year of “sharp” words.

Again, ya’ think?

As far as 2018 goes, the anniversary year of an individual’s “birth” sign is said to bring good “fortune so I predict a whole lot more WINNING! for Donald Trump and America.

All I can say is “Hallelujah!” And have a “blessed” Happy New Year.

Happy New Year

We typically think of a New Year as the time to make “annual resolutions and start fresh.”

Unfortunately, we all know that most “resolutions” are quickly forgotten.  The good news is that “now” is always the best time to take “charge” of your future and “create” the life you want.

Real success is about “choosing” your priorities, and then following a plan that “emphasizes” the things that are most “important” to you.

With that in mind, here are 10 suggestions for creating a “wonderful, productive and rewarding” year for you.

  1. Take time to decide what you really want this year. What would make it a great year, a fantastic year for you? Dream and scheme, and then dream bigger!  And write it down, just for the fun of it. 
  1. Mark one day each month, just for you. Use ink, not pencil, and schedule an appointment with yourself for one full day each month. Have fun and renew yourself, just for the joy of it.  Every single month.  No exceptions. 
  1. Take more vacation that you had planned. Look at the calendar and write in a couple extra weeks off! Relax.   Do things you enjoy.   Go camping, rent a cabin at the beach, visit old friends, or climb a mountain.  Just do it! 
  1. Commit to a project you’ve dreamed of but haven’t done. This is not a “should” or a “have to”. It’s an “I’ve always wanted to but never did” project.  Learn to ski, write a book, visit a foreign land, start a business, or run for Mayor.  This is the time! 
  1. Buy four books you’ve always wanted to read and schedule time for them.  Put it in your appointment calendar as “continuing education” or “research”, and enjoy! 
  1. Donate time each week to a cause or group that needs your help. Mentor a child, support the Red Cross, and volunteer at your house of worship. Make a difference. 
  1. Renew relationships with family and friends. Every week, send a note or make a call, and re-connect with the people who have helped you along the way. 
  1. Make a point every single day to tell someone you appreciate them, that you are grateful for their help. Practice the attitude of gratitude! 
  1. Raise your expectations and increase your goals. Double what you expect of yourself and your world, and then commit to making it happen! Expect great things. 
  1. Be kind to yourself and those around you. Be gentle, practice patience, expect the best and settle for nothing less.

Cheers

Greatest Thing Of The Year 2017

Posted in uncategorized with tags , , , , , , on December 30, 2017 by andelino

In the new progressive America, “Silence Breakers” rule you!

The issue I have with the “#metoo movement” is that it is a “movement” and not a “person.”

If Time wants to give the award to the “movement,” they need to change the name of the award. You could call it the “Greatest Thing Of The Year.”

That would provide the necessary nounal generality that could include a PERSON, PLACE, THING, OR IDEA.

Our “twice failed,” many-titted presidential candidate Hillary Clinton deserves the “honor” more than anybody else.

Others who are close runner up are Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Water, Sheila Jackson Lee, Corrine Brown, Frederica Wilson, Barbara Lee, Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, Mika Brzezinski, Ivanka Trump, plus all those “snowflakes” who promised to leave the USA but got cold feet.

Thanks to the “#metoo” influence, I won’t be “looking, hugging or speaking” with women in 2018. Too scary!
