I recently bought a DVD box set with twenty spaghetti westerns (thirty-two hours worth), dating from 1963 to 1978. The DVD was released through Mill Creek Entertainment. It cost less than ten dollars, not even a fistful. A couple nights ago, I watched the first one: “Gunfight At Red Sands” (1964).
The movie itself was forgettable, but its theme song made me rub my scruffy chin. The tune, sung by Dicky Jones, is called “A Gringo Like Me.” It’s chorus line offered a twisted kind of logic, just twisted enough to make sense to me: “There’s just one kind of man that you can trust / that’s a dead man / or a gringo like me.” You can listen to it here: [ http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G02b5pfnJYk ].
What made me stop and think was the word gringo. I’m a wordsmith kind of a guy, and I can’t help but wonder…

The executive director of a physicians’ organization questions how the mainstream media can ignore signs of what could be a traumatic brain injury in the Democrat nominee for president.
Dr. Jane Orient, executive director of the Association of American Physicians and Surgeons, observes that “strangely silent is the mainstream media about the fitness” for presidential office of Hillary Clinton. At AAPS’ website, Orient summarizes the concerns about Clinton’s health that she says are growing:
There’s the photograph of Secretary Clinton’s difficulty walking up some steps. Now inability to climb stairs does not necessarily disqualify a person for public office. However, neither she nor people with her apparently anticipated a problem. The people helping her seem to be preventing a fall. Did she simply trip? Or was it a seizure or a stroke?
Videos widely circulated on the internet are, if authentic, very concerning. One shows prolonged, inappropriate laughter; another, strange head movements. In a third, she appeared momentarily dazed and confused, and lost her train of thought. Reportedly, she has a volcanic temper. (This is probably not new.)
A man who stays close to her, who is reportedly not a Secret Service officer, was photographed carrying something in his hand that purportedly might have been an autoinjector of Valium.
While we don’t have Mrs. Clinton’s medical records, it is widely stated that she experienced a fall that caused a concussion. Since then, she is sometimes seen wearing eyeglasses with prisms, as are used to correct double vision.
Orient explains that serious concussions can often cause traumatic brain injury that is not always detected on standard medical tests such as a CT or MRI.
“Many of our veterans who experienced blast injury from improvised explosive devices suffer from it,” she continues, adding:
These are some symptoms: difficulty thinking, attention deficits, confusion, memory problems, frustration, mood swings, emotional outbursts, agitation, headaches, difficulties with balance and coordination, and seizures. Many veterans with such an injury cannot hold a job or interact normally with their families.
“Obviously, it would be very dangerous for a person subject to symptoms like this to be dealing with foreign leaders or making critical decisions,” she states. “The President of the United States may have to make world-changing decisions on a moment’s notice. For example, should we launch nuclear-armed missiles? And if the Commander in Chief is confused, who will make the call?”
In November of last year, watchdog organization Judicial Watch reported its review of pages of email from Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin, in which Abedin advised a State Department staffer that it was “very important” to review phone calls with Clinton because she was “often confused.”
Abedin had emailed Monica Hanley, a State Department Clinton aide and companion, from her Huma@clintonemail.com address to alert Hanley about the need to review phone calls with the then-Secretary of State.
According to the report, on January 26, 2013, Abedin had the following email exchange with Hanley:
- Abedin: Have you been going over her calls with her? So she knows singh is at 8? [India Prime Minister Manmohan Singh]
- Hanley: She was in bed for a nap by the time I heard that she had an 8am call. Will go over with her
- Abedin: Very imp to do that. She’s often confused.
Breitbart News asked Orient if the Judicial Watch report of Abedin’s emails is consistent with the signs she notes in her article.
“It is,” she responds, adding:
There are some very concerning things on Twitter #hillaryhealth. For example, that she naps at 5 p.m. and can’t be aroused, or that her Mini-Mental State exam – which you use to screen patients who might have an organic brain syndrome – has deteriorated since 2013.
“Scurrilous lies? Or sign that somebody unknown is acting for her? Could she pass a random drug screen that might be required of a crane operator?” Orient asks.
Orient then poses what is perhaps the most obvious question of all.
“Is it conceivable that Hillary supporters would really be voting for Huma Abedin, Clinton’s top aide, or for the First First Husband President, Bill Clinton?” she asks. “The American people are entitled to know the objective medical facts about Secretary Clinton.”

The graphic novel inspired by the New York Times bestselling investigative blockbuster Clinton Cash has entered a second printing just 24 hours after its official launch and now stands at #5 on the Amazon bestsellers list.
Clinton Cash author and Breitbart Senior Editor-at-Large Peter Schweizer told Fox & Friends that the graphic novel conveys the fact-based reporting in his book “in a way that makes it accessible to people who don’t have time to sit down and read a serious nonfiction book.”
Like the New York Times bestselling book and documentary film it’s based on, Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel, adapted by Chuck Dixon and Brett R. Smith, follows the shady connections and dealings between the Clinton Foundation donors, paid speeches given by Bill Clinton, and actions approved by the U.S. State Department while Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State.
“I think millennials love this sort of approach because it’s humorous. They put in humor. It’s a lot of great visual images,” Schweizer said of the book.
“Stunningly illustrated, hilariously retold, and inspired by the blockbuster book that reshaped the contours of the presidential election, Clinton Cash: A Graphic Novel brings to life Hillary and Bill’s brazen plot to fleece the planet for maximum profit,” publisher Regency said in a release.
Actor-director Clint Eastwood believes that Donald Trump is benefiting from a trend in American culture by saying what he believes, despite criticism from all sides.
“He’s onto something, because secretly everybody’s getting tired of political correctness, kissing up,” Clint Eastwood said in an interview with Esquire. “That’s the kiss-ass generation we’re in right now. We’re really in a p**sy generation. Everybody’s walking on eggshells.”
Eastwood specifically cited Trump’s comments criticizing a judge who was born to Mexican parents, but indicated he was tired of the media fueled controversy
“He’s said a lot of dumb things. So have all of them. Both sides,” he said “But everybody —the press and everybody’s going, ‘Oh, well, that’s racist,’ and they’re making a big hoodoo out of it. Just f***ng get over it. It’s a sad time in history.”
Eastwood said that he hadn’t spoken to Trump about an endorsement, and hadn’t endorsed anyone for president. He clarified that he didn’t agree with everything that Trump said, but indicated that it was refreshing to see an unfiltered politician.
“He’s just saying what’s on his mind and sometimes it’s not so good,” he said. “And sometimes it’s … I mean, I can understand where he’s coming from, but I don’t always agree with it.”
But given the choice between Trump or Clinton, Eastwood suggested that he would probably vote for Trump because Clinton represented more of what Obama did to the country.
“I’d have to go for Trump … you know, ’cause she’s declared that she’s gonna follow in Obama’s footsteps,” he said, calling Clinton “a tough voice to listen to for four years.”
Eastwood criticized political figures who were using their position to make money, citing “too much funny business on both sides of the aisle.”
“She’s made a lot of dough out of being a politician,” he said, referring to Clinton.
Overall, however, Eastwood seemed dissatisfied with both Trump and Clinton.
“Everybody is boring everybody. It’s boring to listen to all this s**t. It’s boring to listen to these candidates,” he said.
He added that an ideal candidate should more understanding instead of trying to insult his way to victory.
“[G]et in there and get it done,” he advised, citing his father. “Kick ass and take names.”

This is a Facebook exchange between my nephew and I from July 31 – Aug 1, 2016: –SAB
Me: “I thought Erdogan [,Tayip] was the bad guy. He’s an Islamist fighting against secularism. I had heard of Gulen [,Fethullah] , but didn’t know anything about him. I suspected that he wanted to overthrow Islamism in Turkey. I’m confused.”
Nephew: Is taxpayer money from his schools being funneled into Hillary’s campaign though? I’ve read that from at least 3 articles, at least one says it’s quoting court documents.
Me: [After viewing the above video] The secularists in Turkey, what are left of them, follow Kemal [Mustafa Kemal Ataturk] who was also a secularist back in the early 20th century. Erdogan and Gulen are pro-jihadist, Islamic fundamentalists who both seek the return of shariah law and the Caliphate. They had a recent power split. Erdogan wants to be, essentially, the “Sultan of the Caliphate,” a return to the Ottoman Empire, before Kemal had secularized it. Gulen wants to run, essentially, the same Islamic State from his billions-dollars compound in the Poconos of Pennsylvania through the educational programs he has set up throughout many U.S. states, using taxpayer dollars.
Erdogan wants Gulen extradited to Turkey where he can imprison him, thus consolidating his sole power. The FBI has investigated Gulen, and is continuing to investigate him, but cannot pin him down for breaking any laws. The U.S., therefore, has no basis to extradite him.
The above Washington Times article is unabashedly pro-Erdogan and anti-Gulen. The large rally in Germany shows just how far-reaching is Erdogan’s influence in Europe, however Gulen has graduates of his schools placed throughout Turkey in business, legislative, police and judicial positions, too many for Erdogan to eliminate.
One thing for sure, the Kemal movement is dead, and Erdogan and Gulen are no friends to NATO. The migration of ISIS jihadists from Syria to Turkey to Europe will continue. As far as Hillary’s Clinton Foundation connection to Gulen, I still know nothing about that.
Me: A complex and murky character, indeed!
