I’d buy an Italian-made seat belt any time.

They appear to be very well-tested.

    I’ll do you one up!!!

    Here’s the “Complete Mel Blanc” – FREE FOR DOWNLOAD (Courtesy of Ralph)…

    If you don’t know who Mel Blanc was – we’ll, are you really from the United States or just some “Trotskyist”?

    You are really just a friggin con-artist. By any chance… Are you and/or Sharon “Gloria” with the “Giant Tomato Bubble” post…

    I have absolutely ZERO interest in discussing top-secret Jewish tribe cult compounds making top-secret pancake recipes either in New York City or in Israel… NONE…

    In case you are wondering, Mr. Adask, in case you have been wondering why I write you…. All of them (especially Tom) plays the “I Know Nothing” card any time anything of substance comes up. They read your page a lot (Tom, Charles, even my dad sometimes… I don’t think Steve does though)

    ca 1492: “The fight for Granada (Gibraltar) by the Christians, Jews, etc… against the Muslims”

    ca 1865: There was the “I Know Nothings”

    ca 1945: There was Orwell & Huxley with… “Newspeak” and the “Ministry of Truth”

    ca 1985: The “Reagan Revolution” CIA Disinformation campaigns

    ca 2016: Tom Torello (my brother)

    THIS, RIGHT HERE, is my favorite encyclopedia page EVER: It describes millions of the “English speakers” in the Great Southwest….

    It has returned.

      Ralphie :

      I’m not Tom,
      not to go off topic too far, but what do you see in this report from Italy

      speaking of seatbelts and all…

      how would you define religion now that the full moon is waning…

      what do you think is the end game in the middle east…vis-a-vis Russia & China

      not to mention the ship of state {USA inc.} & “Europe”…

      might armageddon be about to happen or do “WE” have a few more years to dilly dally
      about while ignoring the obvious

      what year did you graduate from @ MIT…?

        That’s cute!

        Let’s see… Tom, In order, you have brought up: seat belts, Italy, The Vatican & The Pope…. Israel, Russia, The Middle East & Armageddon, … China, “The Ship of State”, USA & USA Inc…. and “dilly dallying” @ MIT. … Dear Pinnochio, again, I am completely dumbfounded by this magnificently sagacious expression of “the truth” … I am quixotically dumbfounded! I have been humbled by the power of your argument… haha..


        Al Adask, before I leave your blog…

        I just want you to know, that I don’t really believe it is you who makes the Internet & Blog-o-sphere so awful all the time! It is PEOPLE WHO DON’T LIKE YOU who try to assault your points with radical extremism & religious fanatical dogma (The Spanish Inquisition all-over-again) to PREVENT FACTUAL POINTS from being discussed. The truth is that ACTUAL FACTS about state of the world include things that most American’s have refused to ever even consider…. Mandarin, The Communist Party of China, World Trade vis-a-vis (the largest moving objects ever created) Asia-Pacific Transport Ships, Obama & Mind Control, and of course Mexico, Spanish, Ethnic Demographics in Dallas-Fort Worth & the South..

        Best Regards to Al & all the serious posters!! I hope all your pursuits work out…

        Take care,

        Ralph P. Torello

        P.S. I really have to get back to my Chinese and hopefully Spanish translations. Did I mention I’m going to give try Korean “the old college try” next? I’ve done Chinese since age 16, and Spanish since my Kindergarten & First Grade classrooms where they spoke Spanish… Korean is actually a “phonetic alphabet” language – unlike Mandarin which is pictographic, so I do stand a chance at learning it – (albeit a small one)

    Al Adask has a “Keyword Filter” on his blog… Since I cited some extremely inconvenient facts for some (not all, just some) of Adask’s Law Blog… my previous comment was filtered out!!… Instead, I’ll just write a small point here….

    Less than 10% of the things on the above HTML page are even true… He never went to any college, for instance… As far as “Good night Audio” goes… All I can say is: “Yeah right!”

    By any chance, now that we know “Anthony Clifton” is Tom, is there some other chance that “Peg Powers” or “Gloria” are also Tom? They literally become “queer” when they start their nonsense..

    If “Peg Powers” or “Gloria” are not fake addresses…. 1,000 apologies!!!

      Over the past ten years, I’ve met Ralph Torello Jr. half dozen times while visiting his father Ralph Sr.. I’ve also met Ralph’s brother, Tom Torello on several occasions From what Ralph’s father has told me, Tom is a VERY successful Houston lawyer. (correction: it’s not Tom that’s the successful lawyer; it’s his his twin brother Steve, who’s the the successful lawyer. I’m not sure what Tom does, but I’ve met him 5 or 10 times over the past decade. I don’t think that I’ve seen Steve or Tom for most of five years.)

      I’ve also met “Anthony Clifton” over the years, and I know he is not Tom Torello.

      This blog does not exist to discover the true identify of everyone who posts comments here. Likewise, this blog does not exist provide an opportunity for Ralph Torello Jr. to engage in real or imagined battles with members of his family.

      It may be that these bizarre accusations are evidence that Ralph Jr. is mentally unbalanced. It may be that these bizarre accusations are evidence of Ralph Jr.’s bizarre sense of humor or even determination to slander others.

      Whatever the explanation for Ralph Jr.’s bizarre accusations, he needs to stop. If he wants to comment on the subject matter of the articles presented, that’s fine. If he wants to drag his family relationships into the comments, that’s not fine. If he wants to waste my and my readers’ time by making false accusations and clever insults, that’s also not fine.

      I do not have a “word filter” for the comments on this blog. WordPress may have such a filter, but I do not. If WordPress has such a filter (which I doubt), it’s possible that one or more of Ralph Jr.’s comments have been deleted.

      However, I am capable of banning individuals from this blog. I don’t like to do it, but sometimes people behave in a persistently uncivil manner that I (and others) find offensive, so I ban them. No more comments. No good comments, no bad comments, just no more comments.

      One other point. In a previous comment, Ralph Jr. has stated that I drove down to the State mental health facility at Terrell, Texas to pick him up after he’d been held for several months for a psychiatric “tune up”. That’s not precisely true. Several years ago, I rode down to the Terrell mental health facility with Ralph Jr.’s father, Ralph Sr., when Ralph’s father drove down to visit him. I remember vividly when Ralph Jr., in a fine display of self-righteous rage, told his father and me that the shrinks at Terrell had fixed him so he could never be married or have children. According to Ralph Jr., they’d castrated him. I was astonished. Ralph Jr. is a well-educated, intelligent and articulate man. His claim, although astonishing, was made with so much genuine conviction that I didn’t know what to say. I actually thought he might be telling the truth.

      After we left, his father told me that Ralph Jr. was lying–he hadn’t been castrated.

      I’ve never been a fan of mental health facilities. I’ve been inclined to believe some of the horror stories of mistreatment that sometimes occur in such facilities. But I have to admit that after Ralph Jr. spent several months at Terrell and was finally released, he was much improved. I was surprised. Terrell actually helped him a lot. He came back to Dallas and there was even hope that he might find a job. So far as I know, he never did.

      What Ralph Jr. has done is start hanging out on this blog. I’m not sure why, but looking for valid reasons in this matter might be a futile pursuit.

      What I can say is this: Judging from Ralph Jr.’s persistently bizarre comments–especially about “chips” and “implants” behind everyone’s eyes (I think he’s sincere; I think he really believes we’ve all be “chipped”)–I suspect that Ralph could do with another Terrell “Tune Up”.

      In any case, if Ralph Jr. can’t at least write on this blog as if he’s mentally stable, I may have to pull the plug and ban him from this blog.

      I’m not saying that Ralph Jr. actually has to be mentally stable. I’m only saying that if he wants to stay on this blog, he should at least be sufficiently stable to act convincingly as if he’s mentally stable. Repeated comments about chips and implants behind everyone’s eyes is evidence that Ralph Jr. is due for another Tune-Up. Comments about other readers on this blog being Tom Torello are another evidence that Jr. is due for another Terrell Tune-Up.

      If Ralph Jr. is sane enough to at least act as if he’s sane, and if he can suppress his instinct to insult people and believe any idea that pops into his head, he’s welcome to stay. But, if Ralph Jr. keeps acting as if he’s nuts, he’s going to have to expect that treat him as if he’s nuts. If that’s what he wants, it’s fine with me–but not on this blog. If that’s not what he wants, he needs to install his own “word filter” on his comments and self-censor whichever or his comments are a little too bizarre.

        Jesus Al,

        You are just embarrassed because you “fell” for Tom’s points… I forward this stuff to Tom, Charles & Steve… I know you are embarrassed (and really don’t know what Tom does sometimes) because you assert “he’s a successful Houston Lawyer” – rather than somebody who does “sales” in Plano…

        anyway, if you don’t want to discuss the facts, that’s fine. Never-the-less, none of the Historical or Scientific facts I have mentioned have you asserted are “lies” or “untrue.”

        OK, if you don’t like my points, that’s fine – but to condemn me as “being mental” kind of a “weak mind” on your part.

        Tom, my brother, makes up names for himself. He is not a lawyer at all. Tom posted those points, and I’m sure you believe you’ve met “Anthony Clifton” and “Gloria” – never-the-less, the burden of proof goes onto “Pinnochio” – because both you & Tom have made up facts in the previous comment!

        That’s how lies work! Don’t deal in lies,,, provide facts… you don’t do that so often – you used to!

        Before we degenerate into “LGBT Law” and all the castrations (the origin of the discussion Transgender) that have been performed… Incidentally, many people were “partially castrated” … Have you heard about the 20th century Civil War in Spain? Even Francisco Franca who reigned in Spain as an Autocrat for almost 35 years was partially castrated. Hey was referred to as “Francisco Paulino Hermenegildo Teódulo Franco Bahamonde”

        In A.A. (’02 – ’07) for me… We would say “but for the Grace of God” … that is a borrowing phrase of the Old Spanish Kings which, for example, Franco asserted he was when saying “But For the Grace of God There goes Francisco Franco.”

        Here’s a video of a “partially castrated man” right now….(El Gran Caudillo por todo de Espana y Castille)

        Here is “the last King of Spain” (Franco) meeting with then President Richard Nixon.

        Believe me Al, it’s *very* relevant… LGBT Law is them covering up the atrocities the Department of Homeland Security performed over the past 20 years…

        May 22, 2016 at 3:55 PM

        The rhetoric in major news sources & the associated press IS NOT about “weirdos” who still live in “Greenwich Village” in New York… or “Deep Ellum” in Dallas … or “Haight Ash-bury” in San Francisco… (The “last” hippies or the “last” moonies…. although there are A LOT of “moonies” in Plano)

        THIS type of stuff REGULARLY MAKES the DALLAS MORNING NEWS because of the atrocity of the Department of Homeland Security during the President Clinton & Bush regimes… (I think they stopped after “President” “Obama” took office)

        Many people in the (former) USA after the wake of 9/11 (and even before 9/11) had the private organs attacked. That’s why they have been printing things about “Transgender Law” all the time… It is one of the MOST IMPOSSIBLE issues in Politics to deal with today. Generally when over-zealous political forces engage in this type of assault on the people – government’s fall (and stay fallen) for decades – even a century.

        Have you heard of the expression “Sing Soprano?”

        Here is the most famous quote (attributed to Charles V of “New Spain”) that I can think of about Western Europe’s multiple languages during the Renaissance.

        “I speak Spanish to God, Italian to women, French to men, and German to my horse.”

        After the Napoleanic Wars (for instance, when Europe’s colonial empire’s collapsed)… “Italin Opera” was how they dealt with people’s lives who had been destroyed by castration.

        What do you think was going on when this TV show aired?

    To Ralph Jr.:

    Re-read my comment concerning Tom. It was edited yesterday when I remembered that your brother the lawyer is Steve, not Tom. I haven’t seen either of them or you in probably five years. I initially confused their names and occupations. I corrected my original comment.

    It’s not about lies, it’s about memories.

    I’m not embarrassed because I know who “Anthony Clifton” is. I’ve met him repeatedly during the 1990s. I recognize his writing style. He is not Tom.

    If anyone should be embarrassed, it’s you for falsely claiming that “Anthony Clifton” is a pseudonym for Tom. But part of your mental problem is that you’re so sure that anything you imagine must be true, that you’re incapable of seeing when you’re wrong, and worse, you’re apparently incapable of being embarrassed by your own mistakes and/or lies.

    Your inability to be embarrassed may be evidence that you have little or no conscience. I think they have a psychiatric term to describe people suffering from that disability.

    Tom literally admitted on the page above… Don’t start about “Tom”… It’s not that important…. SUFFICE IT TO SAY, Tom, Charles, me & my dad sometimes read Adask’ Law Blog.

    The one thing that I wanted to point out about “windmills” is this EXTREMELY IMPORTANT POINT… I call it the “National Enquirer” or “National Examiner” point.. “Don Quijote de La Mancha” and the “Verbal Windmill Point.”


    Ralph, there is NO WAY that Oswald shot Abraham Lincoln, because when Lincoln was there in Rome giving his “Friends, Romans, Countrymen” speech – Brutus Kennedy is the one who stabbed him – Not Oswald. Do you know history?

    Ralph, there is NO WAY that then-President Hillary Clinton actually defeated Hitler during the Civil War, because those who were fighting on the Eastern Front were being led by Elvis Presley, and his friend Paul McCartney… Have you ever heard of the “Third Reich”?

    Ralph, I know for a fact that the Moon Landings and Astronaut Leonid Trotsky were in the Spaceship – because NASA director Osama Bin Laden in Moscow was right there in Area 51 in Berlin & Auschwitz that day. Can’t you read?

    Ralph, when big-foot was hiding in the book-depository on November 23, 1963 – the YouTube video of Condolezza Rice standing next to George Bush clearly shows that the Tower 7 was where big-foot was actually hiding – NOT the book depository. Did you go to Harvard or something?

    Yes, I actually did take classes at Harvard (Chinese classes).

    I stand by the fact that THESE POINTS are EXTREMELY RELEVANT for anyone who writes a Blog to the internet… This is a MAJOR COMPONENT of the problem:

    I may be enjoying this too much, it is like high- level intelligence in a straight shot, thank you, Ralph. Also, quite off at times, but that is actually how occasionally the communication goes with the Mensa crowd. The question I have is for Anthony Clifton. The hatred of the Jewish people and Israel is rising. My question, in light of many scripture quotations by A. Clifton, is: (1) does the Bible say the Jews will be regathered to their land in the last days (2) are the people in the physical land of Israel, today, with Jerusalem as their possession, significant in light of Bible prophecy, the regathered Israel (3) do the specific landmarks of the physical geography of the soil Jesus returns to clearly indicate the physical soil of Jerusalem, Israel (4) does the Bible say the brethren in the flesh of Jesus will only recognise Him when He returns to intervene in the nearly accomplished goal of annihilation of the Jews? Could you please answer in plain English without numerous internet references? If you truly understand any subject you can communicate in simple terms. I am trying to understand this issue as it seems to be in the beginning stages now.

      can you show in the Bible where and when specifically the Children of Israel
      ” turned into Jews” in the Old Testament ?

      Modern day so-called “Jews” are not “Israelites”….

      perhaps if you could read the Old Testament with the knowledge that “Jewish” is
      NOT THE ISSUE….to be a “Jew” the “Proselyte” to Talmudic Judaism MUST
      1}Hate Jesus
      2} Have a copy of the Talmud

      the Old Testament is NOT the Talmud.

      try reading {with an open mind} the following :

      IN GOOD FAITH !!!

      you decide who is telling the Truth….

        Do you remember when “country words” used to mean something? It seems like, today, everything is about “parties” or “systems” or “capitals” now. (This is my Grandpa’s job from New York ca. 1946). I scanned the collection yesterday at the library.

        Why leave on such a sower note. You might appreciate these! I have hundreds of them from “countries” all around the planet (ca. 1946, 1947, 1950..)

        Thank you, A. Clifton, for your response. The word Jew is a shortened version of Yehudi-clan of Judah. YEHUDI IS A HEBREW NOUN WHICH IS JEW IN ENGLISH. It is derived from Judah one of Jacobs 12 sons, it occurs 76 times in the Old Testament. Jew describes Israelites, anyone from the Kingdom of Judah and northern Israel. Hebrew, Israelites and Jews are synonyms. Jews are descendants of Jacob and those who adhere to Judaism. Modern Jews have human genome markers that prove they are a race. Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, was 100% Hebrew/Jewish/Israeli. The Pharisees were lost according to the Lord but not all, some believed in Him. The modern day Jews are most certainly Israelites, legal definition. I answered your questions, could you possibly answer my four questions, or, just one?

    Is it not basic and fundamental to understand that the good Book is a simple TIMELINE of a particular family—a very large family—— from—–Adam, Noah, Abe, Isaac, Jacob, David…… the promised Godly seed, the Redeemer-Savior-King, born of Mary.

    Even Adam had to live “by faith” in the promise of the future “redeemer” (Gen.3:15). And that identical faith is required of us also. Then, as now, all who deny and reject this truth are of the anti-christ.

    It’s a matter of heart, spirit and virtue, not of science. Let us not be partakers of the popular religion (claims) of “Humanism”, which is just another Pharisee-communist front promoting chaos and degeneration in our society.

    they from the Tribe of Judah

    • Adask

      May 28, 2016 at 8:10 PM

      I agree with you, but it’s often hard to draw the line. More, as I’ve explained previously, I don’t always have time to consider, respond to, or trash every comment on this blog.

      For example, I don’t have time to watch every video that posted as a link in the Comments. Maybe, I shouldn’t allow any video links–but that will aggravate as many people as it pleases.

      As another example, WordPress sends me notice by email of some of the comments posted on the blog. Reading those notices, I might not be able to understand the comments because they are replies to some previous comment by someone else. By itself, the new comment may seem stupid. In the context or a previous comment, the newest comments might be quite smart. I usually don’t have time or energy to go back and read the entire “thread” to decide in the most recent comment is brilliant or idiotic.

      As a third example, I get notice of new comments where it’s not clear if the comment (which might be complimentary or critical) is intended for me or for one of the others who post comments on this blog. I.e., when someone writes “You idiot!” as a comment is he writing to me–or is he writing to you? I usually don’t have time or interest to re-read the thread to see who is (probably) being insulted.

      Finally, while most of the comments on this blog tend to be intelligent and well-written, some comments seem unclear, ignorant or poorly written, that I’m not sure what they mean. Even though they might not make much sense to me, they might make perfect sense to some other reader who commented on the blog. Shall I delete a comment that might make sense to someone else? If I do, will the next “You idiot!” be definitely directed at me? Or will it be another one for you?

      We are caught in a dilemma. That’s what happens when you deal with the general public. Some of them are a tad less than “perfect”–and that includes you and me.

      A lot of times, when it comes to comments, I just have to hope for the best.

      My policy is to generally let free speech run free–unless somebody proves himself to be a persistent idiot and disruptive fool. In that case, I ban them. Which is no picnic. I had one guy on this blog who was both brilliant and a royal pain the cheeks that I had to ban repeatedly. He may have used up to 100 different aliases to get on this blog. I had to block them all. You know how much time that takes?

      Life is hard for those of us publish blogs and allow comments. We suffer like Jews of Blacks. Sniff.

    Understood. Maybe you can persuade him to self police a little?

    • Adask

      May 29, 2016 at 4:40 PM

      Nope. If he’s really a little (or a lot) crazy, the idea that he would or even could “self police” is crazy.

      There is another alternative: YOU could “self police” in the sense that you could simply refuse to read any comment made by someone you deem to be crazy.

    It’s your ‘garden’ Al. You can tend it as you like. If you don’t care if it’s overgrown with ‘weeds’ and ‘thistles’, so be it.

    I read many blogs. Can’t think of one besides this one that allows lengthy, over-posted lunatic rants from one demented individual who isn’t really contributing anything.
