ET TU, MEXICO?
Immigration has been a key issue in the news of late. Congress has flipped, then later flopped on their position concerning illegal immigrants. They will do anything to keep President Trump from a win on his border wall campaign promise. They will obstruct knowing full well that border area is in true crisis and something must be done to prevent the US from being overrun with those who would bypass the line and enter illegally. The fact that violent crime and dangerous drugs travel with some of the people in the caravan is of little concern to the Democrats. They have walls and security, unlike the average citizen.
The Democratic side led by Pelosi and her gang of misfits , will go for allowing more illegal aliens into the country in the hopes that they will be fresh Democratic voters for their machine. They do not care that the system is groaning under the weight of their upkeep.
Secure borders to both the North and South are essential for national security, but what of the 22 million or so illegals from various countries that have already been released into the United States, not to mention the thousands that continue to come?
For the sake of argument, say theoretically, the US would need a three part plan.
The first of a three part plan would be to try to build the wall in order to keep out any new illegal immigrants. Check, President Trump is getting monies and resources together for the first half.
Part two of the plan is to find a way to document the people who are already here and find the best way to deal with and process them. No check, Department of Homeland Security, Border Patrol and ICE are overrun with lack of resources, and so many migrants are lost in the system as they are already here.
Part three would be to quell the “caravans’ at the border before they enter the US. See part two, it is a no go right now.
Except for part one that President Trump is forcing through by declaring (legally) a national emergency, there is no cooperation to find or create any plausible ideas or ways to accomplish parts two and three.
The Democratic Party controls the House. They have made it abundantly clear that their obsession is to take President Trump down and if it is necessary to pull everyone in the United States down with him, so be it.
They refuse to visit the border and meet the troops on the ground. Border patrol have issued a standing invitation, which they have refused to acknowledge. They prefer to wear blinders and throw shade and derision at the President. They do not want to know the truth.
Congressional and Senate leaders would not listen in a meeting with the DHS director, Kirstjen Neilson. Pelosi stating, “I reject your facts.”
However, the facts weren’t particular to Secretary Nielson, they were the exact data about the problem. It is a stalemate between the President and the Democratic held Congress, and the renegade RINOS.
One of the traditional sources of illegal aliens is Mexico. For many decades, the country was so economically depressed, that the United States was the proverbial Promised Land.
People could cross the border, get a job, even a low wage job, and earn much more than they had in Mexico. They could send their money home to their families, build their homes there and put money into their economy, usually around a 10 to 1 exchange rate. That is, 10 pesos to one dollar.
In 1993, NAFTA, (North America Free Trade Agreement) was signed into law. Then president Clinton said that “NAFTA meant jobs.” (He did not necessarily mean for people in the United States, but it did mean jobs for the neighboring countries where former US manufacturing jobs were transferred.)
Vicente Fox, president of Mexico at the time, said, “The real end winner of NAFTA will be Mexico because we have that human capital. We have that resource that is vital to the US economy.”
Felipe Calderon, Mexican president from 2006 to 2012, has issued a statement to Trump’s claim of a border wall at Mexico’s expense, “Mexico won’t pay a cent for Trump’s stupid wall.”
All of this is most likely true even with NAFTA, however the mass migration continued from Mexico to the US, illegal immigrant dollars have been sent south of the border, improving and building many of the Mexican citizen’s standard of living. A job that the government has not been held responsible to do for its own people.
Hospitals in the United States deliver migrant babies, heal their sick and injured. Some pay their way and some cannot. Many take advantage of social welfare programs such as WIC and Food Stamps.
In 1985, when Mexico City had a horrendous earthquake and subsequent mudslide, causing great loss of life and physical damage, the United States sent a large sum of financial aid to combat the devastation.
The above references are just a couple of the many examples of the helpful relationship of the United States and Mexico.
It might be nice for Mexico to remember how it has come to have opportunities for its people. The Mexican government has never done one third as much for her people as the United States has done indirectly and directly by sending financial aid every year. Central and South American countries also receive this aid from the United States.
This aid is to ensure that these governments will provide opportunity and an economy for their citizens, so they wouldn’t need to leave their homes to come to the United States for a better life.
While it is not the responsibility of Mexico to secure our border, they might want to consider with some gratitude all the United States has done for them by way of employing their citizens, and ensuring the good health of many as well.
There is certainly a lot more the Mexican government could do to deter the caravans from arriving at the US border, but the new president isn’t cooperating very much.
If President Trump is forced to close the border indefinitely to solve the Humanitarian and Drug crisis, everyone is going to lose money and commerce. There will be shortages of products and foods. The cost of this action would certainly be staggering for both sides of the coin.
It is ironic that a United States President has to fight his own government along with foreign governments just to keep his constituents safe.

Our 2nd Amendment rights are not up for debate. That’s why I refuse to entertain gun control activists who seek to undermine our safety and compromise the freedoms guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution. From passing “the most pro-gun bill in state history” to ensuring that students, faculty, and visitors can protect themselves on a college campus, I am proud of my record of defending and expanding our 2nd Amendment Rights.
This election, I am once again endorsed by the NRA – National Rifle Association of America and countless #2A supporters throughout the District. Together, we will stand up for our God-given rights and remain “freedom’s safest place.”

COLLINS BILL TO HONOR FALLEN CLERMONT MARINE SENT TO PRESIDENT’S DESK
WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.
“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.
Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.
Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.
That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.
America has long been divided by two contending political philosophies, one created in the firm belief in the god given rights of man through self determination and possession of private property, among others, the inalienable anchors of representative freedoms. The other, a scheme that clings to the Marxist inspired idea that people would be happier when embraced by the comforting arms of a collectivist, benevolent government, in the guise of the Democrat Party.
Into the midst of this conflict of ideas, stepped the most totally corrupt entity to ever enter American politics, the Clintons, man and wife, neither Marxists or Constitutionalists but criminals singularly dedicated to exploiting political divisions for their own self-aggrandizement. Their vehicle to wealth accumulation, power and corruption was through America’s political process.
America’s ill’s will never ever heal until Americans are assured at last, that the entire apparatus of the Clinton’s odious pay to play, personal wealth grabbing, political corrupting, self aggrandizing, treasonous machine is dismantled and she, her husband and all their acolytes stand in the dock to account for their crimes. Only then, will we know the cure has started.
The political struggle has been going on for decades with Socialist-Marxism in the ascendency, until Donald Trump. Trump hasn’t been scheming for years to be President, but is a total newcomer to the governing process because he had finally arrived at his own breaking point. Trump saw that Americas conversion into Socialism was near total and irrevocable. It was his trigger to believe the instauration of American politics was required and he could do it.
So, what does it mean to be a Republican then? Until Trump, absolutely nothing! Republicans, long wanderers in the political wilderness, bought into the socialists agenda for so long that capitulation was considered the norm. No debate, no arguments, just go the Democrats way. The word “bipartisanship” camouflages the exploitative nature of conflicting powers allegedly governing together. Republicans constantly fumbled aways their voters desires to keep America great. They were enjoying their “bipartisanship” and the rewards that came with it. Their greatest trick, as the cliche goes: was their ability to “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.“ Until Trump!
Trump’s not a Republican and definitely not a Marxist but he’s a wealth creating businessman, a capitalist who convinced us he had the skills to Make America Great Again. He knows how to negotiate and the problems left us from eight years of Obama’s amateurish leadership, his inherent weaknesses and policies of appeasement, is being challenged face on and renegotiated to the screams and laminations of the spavined Democrat party.
Trump came as a champion. Americans, awakened by the Leftist threat, but lacking leadership and not knowing how to confront it, organized into ’quaint’ political groups, were quickly derided by the media and Deep State practitioners of elitism. The result, victory of conservatism in three successive national elections pushing the Democrat party into near oblivion.
The Republicans are starting to do what we have long wanted and what Trump is pushing them to do: expect political success in the face of tough resistance. Lacking an effective strategy for defeating the Democrats, without being pushed from behind, is slowing the process. Americans are resilient, slow to anger but fierce when pushed. The Democrats plotting against Americans in favor of illegals proves they are morally bankrupt and lack any vision to see America as Americans want it. The changes will be painful but in the end, America will be great again.
Remember, Freedom is thew goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Today is the first day of a brand new year, that drags along with it the sum of all the problems and pretenses of the old year, but accompanied with a dash of sincere hope that under new management, our country can succeed in restoring America to its rightful role, for all the world, as the “Shining Beacon on the Hill.”
I noted that we approach the future under Donald Trump, ‘with a dash of hope,’ but also with a marked lack of enthusiasm. The TEA Party experience seems to have evaporated into thin air after having achieved three consecutive election victories for Conservative principles that finally showed the Marxist-Democrats the door. But those rascals are still out there plotting and scheming and organizing, to undo the grass works efforts that made a Trump Presidency and a Republican Congress possible. From Republicans, there is no gratitude.
Shockingly, the lack of acknowledgement of that effort from our stunned elected politicians who constitute the Republican Party, and who still fail to grasp the import of the tidal wave of political change that eliminated the Democrats, has also swept the GOP’s influence out the door too. They are still reeling in disbelief wondering how a pragmatists became their leader. Apparently some have even “reached across the aisle” to join hands with the Socialist enemy to try to restore their combined hegemony over the American political process. Let the looting continue.
Primary among the GOP “Never Trumpers” stands 4th place loser John Kasich, Governor of Ohio who, if the frequent appeals from his web site to my email address are any indication, still believes he should be the rightful Republican candidate so as to restore to proper governing, the failed process of “bipartisanship” and return our government to the capable hands of the one world government crowd composed of mega banks, international corporations and the quasi assembly of third world nations gathered under the blue banner of the United Nations.
2018 will be another important midterm election experience for conservatism. Also judging by the volume of their appeals for donations, Democrats must truly believe, because Americans really, really hate Trump, that they will capture the House and the Senate again. How they accomplish that goal with an intractable and intransigent, but aging leadership, themselves ready for hospice care, is in serious doubt. Their message never changes, free stuff for everyone, no border walls, protect sanctuary cities and states, and free education and glorify perversion because it’s only fair.
Future leadership for the Democrat party is an unspoken contest between old time American leftists and the corroding influence of foreign ideals (Islam), they are trying to force into the American culture as a norm, a precursor of the coming jihad that turns America into a Caliphate.
Presently, both party’s find their bases confused by indecision. For the Democrats, it’s do they move further left and double down, or move center right to save themselves? For the stupid Republicans, a golden opportunity has been laid at their feet and sure as heck, they’re going to flub it. Where is the TEA parties when we need them? The GOP needs to be cleansed of its socialist heretics. Younger conservative candidates need to be encouraged to step forward and seize the reins of American constitutionalism. As my friend Jack Smith reminds us constantly, “if not now, when?” “If not you, who?”…or something like that. We’ve got to get moving, now.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (01Jan 2018)
Well, well, well. Democrats decisively won the Va. governorship and now scream it was a joyous repudiation of that awful Donald Trump. Lying between the real issues and the screaming propaganda that the Republicans are on the ropes, is the simple little fact that Northern Va. is the deepest part of the ‘swamp’ where many, if not most of the swamp dwellers reside, including #Never Trump Republicans. Remember, the GOP Senate Fund has actually been used to help fund Democrats campaigns if the Republican candidate is conservative with Tea Party connections or one who challenges the ‘RiNO Establishments’ official line.
Important to both campaigns for Va. Governor, was the complete failure by either candidate to face the issue of Obama’s collapsing health care scheme; the Democrats because they didn’t want to remind voters that Obamacare was indeed collapsing, and the Republicans because they didn’t want to remind voters of the incompetence of the Republican Party by its failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. Many RiNO’s still dwell among them.
All the liberal media blowhards are screaming exactly the same thing. “Everybody hates Trump.” But, do they? The results of a new poll published yesterday said that if Hillary and Trump faced off today, Trump would still win. What the politicians up there don’t realize is that the majority of American’s actually hate them and what they stand for, more than they do Donald Trump.
Trump after all, is fulfilling his campaign promises, striking down, as fast as he can, the unelected regulatory bureaucracy Obama imposed on us to kill our economy, reducing the size of government employment rolls, energizing the economy, creating employment opportunities, slowing down illegal immigration, reestablishing America’s status as a valuable and trustworthy military partner against crackpot dictators, and reorganizing fair trade practices with other countries. Not a legacy to be ignored. He doesn’t like the UN either and that can’t hurt.
The roots of the tree of Socialists dogma have been well nourished for years because we didn’t pay attention. The rabid reaction of America’s leftists, its college administrations and the millennial students they are brainwashing, have been ignited into inflamed passion, less by Hillary’s loss than by Trumps victory. This, all while the Democrat party itself collapses around them. Hillary did collude with the Russians, She did sell 20% of our uranium to them and she did rig the Democrat Convention to beat out Bernie Sanders. Now comes Donna Brazile with her tell all book, probably a lame scheme to destroy Hillary once and for all, and set up Michelle Obama for a presidential run. Remember, it’s a year out and the questions about Barak’s Obama’s unknown past still haven’t been answered. Why is that?
For that same one whole year, the crap the left has flung against the Trump train has failed to stick. The media, always leading the anti-Trump parade were falling back in confusion until one or two blue state election victories re-energized what they believe is the true message, that everybody does hate Trump. Well, sorry CNN, but no, they don’t.
Trump will succeed by the merit of his own skill as a capital businessman, bringing his supporters along with him. He will fail if the Trump public doesn’t start their own campaigns to strike back, not just against the sinister Democrats, but the RiNo Republicans themselves. Some are already fleeing Trump’s success. More should be encouraged to follow. This is our only opportunity, short of revolution, to correct our screwed up government and it is only Trump who is capable of Making America Great Again. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (09Nov17)
Bush Finally Speaks
What did it take for former President George W. Bush to finally come out of his burrow and make a public declaration against a sitting President? No no, not against the eight years of Obama’s disastrous attempt to socialize America, or demeaning Bush’s own presidency, but against conservative Donald Trump who is intent on rescuing America from the bleak future of collectivism of the type we now see unfolding in Venezuela, and have seen in Cuba and Zimbabwe where the Political swamp dwellers in Wash. DC, were taking us.
Bush stands as a sterling example of what’s wrong with the GOP. America has moved on and the leadership has ignored that fact. Donald Trump hasn’t! Trump is a fighter and the GOP leadership isn’t. They don’t know how. Bipartisanship is a death wish and since Trump’s election, the “collectivists” of all parties, have gone nuts. In this first year so far, Trump has accomplished more to rescue America from the evils of Obama’s socialism than have decades of political ‘go along to get along’ policies with their silly ‘hands across the aisle’ and political camaraderie nonsense between looters. American’s are sick of it and that’s why we now have Donald Trump.
Bush came out to protect his “Compassionate Conservatism” brand of Americanism that happily embraced the Socialist enemy, the Democrats, as bipartisan co-equals in promoting Americas health and happiness. The Establishment Republicans, for decades, have missed the whole point of the cunning scheme the Democrats have employees to “fundamentally change America.” They’re still confused as John McCain so clearly demonstrates.
The Democrats, employing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as their battle plan, have set Americas political agenda almost since the candidacy of George McGovern in 1972. They have plotted against American conservative values with tactics of political correctness, diversity, multiculturalism, racism, remorse and lies while the Establishment GOP’ers have totally failed to realize the serious damage their bipartisanship was doing to America.
Ultimately, content with second place by enjoying the scraps of political comradeship allotted to them by the Democrats, they finally achieved total power with promises unkept, promises never intended to be kept, totally unprepared to govern, and demonstrably incapable of doing so now that they do have both houses of Congress. They have been left reeling in horror when a fighting President finally puts their feet to the fire and forces them to make Constitutional decisions contrary to their usual norms of capitulation to Democrats.
The Democrats have all but destroyed themselves. They are in disarray across the entire country and divided in even knowing which direction to take their party: to the middle or further left. The Democrats still in Congress are incapable of doing anything other than obstruct and delay and the Republicans let ‘em get away with it. Republican leadership, or whatever it’s called, simply doesn’t have the killer instinct to drive a stake into the heart of the vampire Socialist Democrat party, even prostate as they are. They still speak of bipartisanship.
Reading the text of Bush’s speech, I just imagined it was spoken by Bill Clinton. There was nothing said that Clinton or even Barack Obama wouldn’t have said which explains why Bush’s presidency was a failure. Even Nancy Pelosi, despite reports of her oncoming dementia, still insists on impeaching Donald W. Bush. The Republicans don’t recognize they are in a fight for America’s soul. The fraternity club they have co-existed in is rapidly coming to an end so, they can dry off Bush and send him back to his burrow. He’s not needed anymore. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!. (20Oct17).
What We Learn From Polls
Beware the pop quizzes the various internet sites ask of its readers. I personally like to consult Bob Livingston’s Personal Liberty site where they ask a serious of ‘loaded’ questions requiring only a “yes” or “no” answer, without qualification. For example, today’s series of questions were:
1) Is President Trump mentally fit to serve? Yes or no? Of course he is and he demonstrates it daily. He’s running circles around Congress, putting them into positions where they have been legislatively moribund in their decision making abilities, not wanting to threaten their financial supporters. Add in the treachery of six Republican Senators, John McCain primary among them, the wailings of the deranged media and the question becomes, just who is mentally fit?
2) Should President Trump have kept Steve Bannon on board at the White House? Yes or No? He could have, but Bannon best serves Trump from the outside where he promises to attack all Deep State Republicans for removal, which brings us to the next question…..
3) Is the GOP headed for major upsets in the 2018 midterms? Yes or No? Yes, but it will not be the Democrats replacing feckless Republicans, it will be candidates from the Conservative Tea Party side of the Republican party. Democrats are going all in for Marxism. That won’t do!
4) Is Trump’s attack on NBC an assault on their 1st Amendment Rights? Yes or No? The President has a 1st Amendment right to defend himself just as NBC enjoys a 1st Amendment to promote Democrat propaganda against him. It’s a two way street, isn’t it?
5) Does a gun registry threaten the 2nd Amendment? Yes or No? It certainly does. A registry, as we saw in Australia, permitted a rogue socialist government to arbitrarily seize all citizens guns because government knew where they were located. Australians are now being overrun by street criminals, with guns, and violent muslims pushing the envelope of their silly demands.
6) Is Roy Moore the beginning of a broader conservative revolt in the GOP? Yes or No? Of course he is. Despite Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s throwing millions of NRC donations in support of his picked candidate, and the Administration’s support, Moore won. It’s a start.
7) Should the U.S. launch a military strike on North Korea? Yes or No? Not peremptorily. South Korea is in the way. It should be their decision, unless NK launches a first strike. We can push them though, by shooting down their next test launch missile.
8) Should bump stocks and similar devices be banned? Yes or No? The question now is should they be seized? Stores have sold out and one can be fashioned by any home grown fabricator of which America is gifted with a vast rich pool. Full automatic weapons are illegal to possess without the hard to get ATF tax stamp. Another law will do nothing to stop violence with guns,…. or knives, or hammers or cars, for that matter.
9) Time for Nancy Pelosi to retire? Yes or No? A silly question, isn’t it? Absolutely not. For the GOP, Nancy is the gift that keeps on giving.
10) Will the GOP establishment sabotage Roy Moore? Yes or No? Yes, they’ll try but, it will only serve to confirm what voters everywhere already know, draining the swamp will not be complete until the establishment GOPer’s are all swept away too. That’s my view. What’s yours?Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em. (16Oct17)
The Power of Shouting
When political correctness trumps the truth to suppress alternate opinions, it is because PC is accompanied by a bodyguard of fear. Fear of being shouted down without benefit of dialogue, fear of being ostracized by one’s peers in the workplace, and fear of losing a job because you, the ‘offender,’ was not part of the team. PC is politically corrupt, forged in lies and totally engaged in cognitive dissonance. These people are not just tendentious, they are outright evil in smothering the opinions of others and killing debate.
In its present disguise, coming to us to protect feel good policies supposedly to empower the powerless, etc., the practitioners of PC reveal themselves as haters of Western culture, haters of cultural traditions, Christians, Confederate statues and community norms. Disagree and the organized mobs of PC will invade your space, tear up your copy, commandeer your speaking platform and seize the outlets of digital communication to attack the offender until he is gone.
Cloaked in fake news, outright lies, disinformation and threats of retribution, the power of shouting in the hands of the PC crowd, becomes the tool of oppression and victims, who fail to submit are usually never heard from again. Another definition of Political Correctness, is found in the word hypocrisy.
Political correctness over several decades in Hollywood, has protected a financial movie maker, Harvey Weinstein, from the exposure of his outright debauchery, indecency to women and his predatory sexual misconduct. Exactly the same thing happened in the Clinton presidency and within the priesthood of the Catholic Church. Overwhelmed with pedophiles as they were, decent priests, at all levels of the church’s hierarchy, suffered the power of silent shouting.
For Weinstein, instead of the censure a righteous and decent community would have heaped on him, he was lavished with praise even by his frightened victims. Some women have bravely come forward to reveal Weinstein’s depredations against them. One young model even had the audacity to record his very own words in his attempt to coerce her into his bed. The truth at last, PC be damned, has opened the floodgates of hypocrisy. Harvey Weinstein’s reputation cannot be salvaged. Of the many luminaries seen in his hundreds of photographs, none have the PC power to save him. ReHab will not suffice, forgiveness is for God. A prison cell will do it.
Harvey Weinstein will be lost. the Political Correctness that has enveloped Hollywood will only subside when it is challenged by brave defenders of the truth, not to mention the box office. The power of Hollywood, like the power of Senatorial RiNO’s, may be on the wane. Nothing lasts as long as nothing, and when dysfunction becomes the norm and predators bask in its glory, once revealed, the whole house of cards come tumbling down, to…nothing. RIP Hollywood.
Here’s my final thoughts on PC. It all comes from a group of non-thinkers who enjoy “liberal privilege.” That simply means never having to say they’re wrong. Rules that apply to others do not apply to Liberals. In our liberal cities we see that laws to protect public and private property can be suspended in order to allow leftists liberals the room they need to air their PC feelings.
Liberal privilege is Political Correctness and nothing more. They cannot survive without it and that’s why we are overwhelmed by it, but, thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the Catholic Priesthood, and Clinton’s Democrat party, all of it, we may be entering a new healing phase. When did common decency and shame lose its power of shouting?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Oct17)
That Gun Argument Again…
Good ol’ Sen. Diane Feinstein (D- Ca). She can always be counted on to reveal the obvious. On Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, she said: “the U.S. is a “gun happy country,…“and I think there are many of us in growing numbers that don’t want a gun-happy country.” Of course she’s wrong but was referring to the annual deaths of Americans by gun fire. She could have said the US is a gun-savvy country but that wouldn’t have fit the Progressive narrative needed to disarm all American, to protect us from gun violence, a la Las Vegas.
Last weeks mass murder in Las Vegas, by a deranged, white millionaire gunman who shot himself to death before his apprehension, gave the anti-self-defense and anti-second amendment crowd another platform of self-serving outrage to attack our Constitution.
Let’s change one word in her sentence and see where that goes: “The U.S. is a car happy country…and I think there are many of us in growing numbers who don’t want a car happy country.” Or, “The US is a hammer-happy Country…etc. & etc.” I substitute cars and hammers because these two inanimate objects account for more killings in America than guns do.
The Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, a multi-millionaire, can hire gun toting bodyguards to safeguard her person but, that’s really only from attempts at assassinations. Most Americans are subject to the sudden armed assault on the mean streets of America, or home invasions, or attempts at car-jacking from mall parking lots. These people need to defend themselves.
One third of all gun deaths in America, apart from the body count occasioned by the Las Vegas murders, are suicides. More people are killed in domestic assaults by hammers than guns and the score racked up by vehicles, jihadists included, outpaces them all.
So, why the assault specifically against firearms and not hammers and cars? All three are inanimate objects. All three require a human being to actuate them and all three are capable of killing, yet it is only the firearm, the possession of which is specifically permitted to Americans, as enshrined in the 2d Amendment, yet still stands as a horror to Progressive politicians.
The Anti-gunners argue that hammers and cars are needed daily by society to grow and guns are not. And there they miss the big picture. Society is growing and as it does it generates its own class of citizens who do not wish to participate. They won’t swing a hammer, or buy a car but they’ll go out of their way to possess a gun. What does a street creep want with a gun except to intimidate others, steal from them the rewards of their labor and leave a trail of dead bodies. Why do Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, want to deny Americans their right to self-defense from such predators?
Worse, the Founders clearly foresaw the dangers of Progressive governments, human nature being what it is, growing into a totalitarian state that, to defend itself, threatens all citizens. They foresaw the indispensable right of those citizens to especially be able to defend themselves from government despotism. And that’s what scares the hell out of Diane Feinstein, et. al..
One statistic I have omitted but is available for confirmation is, that thus far, all the mass shooting outrages committed in the USA, since Columbine, have been committed by either committed Liberals or registered Democrats. Therefore, the logical answer is to prohibit Democrats from owning firearms. Simple, isn’t it? Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em! (10Oct1)
Can Gun Violence be Controlled?
This business about free Americans owning guns, it seems, is not going away. The overwrought, dysfunctional left simply won’t let it go using any opportunity to try to seize our guns. “Never let a crisis go to waste” has long been their motto. The Las Vegas massacre is the current issue they hang their hats on to pursue their primary objective, the total disarming of America, the 2nd Amendment be damned. “People are dying by guns; only total confiscation can stop the carnage; nullify the 2nd Amendment, etc. & etc….”
The Las Vegas shooting is still on the minds of most Americans and will be for awhile because it involved guns in the hands of a white male. As no connection to any conservative group has been reported by the media, it therefore follows that the Mandalay shooter must have been a registered Democrat. If he wasn’t, the Alt-media would have never let us forget it.
To the “Left” guns, legally in the hands of free, independent Americans, is the worst possible thing that they can imagine. But, crime statistics do not support the Left’s claims of a vast count of criminal deaths by guns. No matter, because statistics that do not support their positions are irrelevant, lies made up by the NRA. One third of all gun deaths are suicides. Most of the rest are murders in Chicago, Baltimore, LA, and other urban centers of cultural enlightenment.
The rush to legislate guns by ignorant politicians, exclusively Democrats, constitutes their perennial assault on our Constitution, especially the 2nd amendment. The 2nd Amendment gives American citizens the right to possess firearms. The Left contends that our Founders simply could not foresee advancements in modern technology. They claimed that arguments today about why the Founders considered gun possession as a right enshrined in the Bill of Rights, don’t apply by today’s standards. Nonsense! They apply because of today’s standards.
In Colonial America, citizens had to have guns to defend themselves as well as provide meat for the table. The founders knew government couldn’t defend citizens from robbers, thieves and hostile Indians. Governments charge was, and still is, to defend America from foreign attack. Otherwise, you’re basically on your own. So, what’s changed?
What they do not consider is that while firearms existed in the 1700’s and on, so did vehicle’s, hammers, hatchets and axes. It was the black powder gun and the horse drawn wagon that experienced a rapid change by technology but, it was only firearms that were protected by the Constitution as an “inalienable right.” Vehicles hatchets, and hammers were not. Why?
How many murders are occurring today using vehicles? Enough to give us pause when we go out, yet there is no outrage from the Left. More people are murdered yearly with hammers than are killed by guns. Should the left demand that government totally confiscate hammers?
What’s is not seen in our press are the almost daily reports of murderous atrocities committed by Islamic Jihadists against host country citizens throughout Europe, and even here in America and Canada, using knives, cars and home made bombs.
Are Americans becoming immune to gun violence? Can we trust Government to protect us when we need them, like ‘right now’ for instance? We know the answer to that. Of course not. So, keep your guns clean, keep ‘em oiled and keep ‘em legal. The “Left”, they are out to get us!

An NFL Maelstrom is Coming
Can it possibly be that the citadel of America’s favorite Fall pastime, the mega money making conglomerate called the National Football league and its appendage, the NFL Players Assoc., are in cahoots with the radical left, both politically and economically? “Say it ain’t so Joe.” Are they really contributing millions of dollars to George Soros and other ultra-Liberal organizations dedicated to Socializing America. Do the players know? Probably not. I’ll explain…
The outward appearance is that the NFL and the NFL Players Association are determined to destroy their brand, and their livelihoods, by continuing their “unity” crusade to disrespect every thing Americas stands for and the Left hates, including its honor, its military, its customs and traditions and even the people who support them, the same middle American’s who provide the soldiers, sailors and airmen that have stood up to defend our country.
The NFL owners tell us they respect the player’s right to exercise their free expression. I use the term “free expression” and not free speech because the majority of the kneeling players are too ignorant to articulate a cohesive speech except by the use of cliches. The supposedly college educated members of Pro-Football, it is determined, are educated to the 8th grade level.
We realize this instinctively when we hear them being interviewed on the sidelines, or watch as they raise a leg doggie style on a goal post to signify their status in the pack, and Americans are starting to realize that pro-football has turned into a side-show of muscled freaks, each trying to out do the other with their dancing skills in the end zone to the screaming cheers of their team fanatics. As we watch we determine, to ourselves, that while the antics we see may be stupid, even outrageous, they are no longer unexpected. The reins of restraint have been loosened and the flood gate of sub-cultural habits are pouring out. It is becoming the new norm.
Why has the NFL and the NFL Players Assoc. donated millions to the leftists political organizations like the Center for Community Change, a George Soros group, and the Leftist “Working America” that is devoted to bringing down the Trump presidency? I’m just asking. Shouldn’t you? Why are our high cost entertainment dollars being spent to help topple a government? Is it because the Progressive Left still believes they will return to power and will need spectacular games and ignorant gladiators to keep the citizenry happy while the world collapse around them? Yes indeed, a maelstrom is coming!
And, the basis of their alleged complaints lies in what happened 150 or so years ago when blacks were actually slaves. Today blacks, who are not slaves and never were, well, at least until LBJ’s War on Poverty under 1964 Civil Rights Act, want to fight whites who were never slaveholders over Confederate symbols that were created by Democrats. So, what’s the NFL’s role in this business? I believe it’s white guilt by white team owners not wanting to injure the feelings of their ignorant slave/gladiators, by giving in to their claims of “Team Unity,” and I have no idea where that comes from. When white players join them in “taking a knee” in disrespect, it’s because they’ve been intimidated by the taunts of “Racism, and white privilege.”
It is for this reason we see the positions, once solely occupied by skilled white players on majority black teams, quickly declining; why coaching staffs are turning darker and why more broadcast booths are filling with fashionably suited black game prognosticators telling viewers what they just saw. It’s a happy facade. It’s in your face racism and it’s not whites doing it.

Leave it to the media to anathematize Trump and Conservatism using any issues that flies by.
The media has become so unscrewed by their hatred of President Trump that, like the NFL, they don’t really see or understand what they are continuing to do to themselves, further tarnish their credibility and diminish their brand name. Now it’s private airplane flights by Tom Price, H&HS Secretary, doing his job that they are attacking. I don’t care.
That Sec. Price used, or had to use, a private conveyance to do his job is a symptom of a problem, not the problem. He asked for and received permission to book his flights so I don’t understand the media’s outrage. The media didn’t express outrage when our Royal Princess, Nancy Pelosi demanded and got, befitting her elitist station, a large Air Force plane to convey her back and forth non-stop to San Francisco every week when she was House Speaker. The media didn’t go berserk when Attorney General Loretta Lynch secretly booked a private plane for her flight to Arizona where incidentally, she accidentally met former president Bill Clinton, also there in his private airplane, to discuss golf and grandchildren. By the way, she doesn’t play golf and has no grandchildren.
The dysfunctional but Progressively obedient media fended off complaints when Obama flew to Hawaii aboard his presidential yacht, a huge fuel consuming 747 costing millions, several times a year not to mention all the other pleasure and campaign flights he took in it. The eight year bill for his highness’s pleasure must have been stupendous but nobody in the media was outraged. Clearly, to do so would have been racist. For Tom Price, it’s “white privilege.”
We haven’t heard one word about the private travel expenses of Obama’s many Czar’s, Department Secretaries, administrators and etc. during the eight years of gracious living they all enjoyed but, one Trump official doing his job, using the most expedient method to do so, and the Leftist media goes completely berserk.
For the media their problem remains. They can sling all the offal their dirty little hands can hold against the wall but nothing sticks because nobody believes ‘em anymore. In fact, nobody really cares because American’s voted in Donald Trump as President and no attack against him, coming from the media’s organs of Leftist propaganda, even from the rear against his appointees, is going to change that.
Every department in the Federal Govt. has a Transportation office. It’s sole reason to exist is to find the least expensive mode of transportation for government officials needing do their job in the most expeditious manner possible. Mostly, almost exclusively in fact, US Commercial Carriers are used for that purpose. Abroad, foreign carriers are authorized as needed.
In order to get that authorization for government travel, temporary duty (TDY) orders have to be cut authorizing the expense, including overnight accommodations. If the overnight is spent on a military installation, including Aircraft Carriers at sea, it still costs money and must be budgeted for. Nothing is free and nobody gets a free ride. It only has to be justified.
Travel expenses are all budgeted a year or more in advance and usually causes no problems. Upon completion of the travel, the official traveler submits a detailed expense voucher, with receipts as necessary, detailing the travel and the expense involved. In the case of Tom Price, some aide is responsible for this task. I used the term TDY, and that’s military jargon so I don’t know exactly how H&HS does it, but, there are only so many dollars budgeted per year for travel and it must be accounted for. The Mean Stream Media doesn’t report those little details. I have no clue how the Obama administration and Hillary did it, but I suspect like everything else they touch, some skullduggery was involved. It’s just a job. The media should get over it.

Can The Swamp Be Drained?
It’s a crying shame that Dr.Tom Price, former Ga 6th District Rep. and Trumps appointed Secretary of Health & Human Services, saw it necessary to cave in to the leftist media’s tsunami attack on his transportation woes. The “Establishment”, the corrupted one world government crowd of Progressivism, can now proudly hang another trophy head on their wall. It appears the VA Secretary may be next followed by whomever shows even a hint of weakness. Beware, the establish will eat its own.
But let’s be truthful. This is not an accident. It’s a coordinated ‘establishment’ attack by our ‘betters’ to neuter Trump presidency they see as dangerous to their lifestyle. They haven’t been able to demonize or criminalize Trump, so they have now started picking around the edges claiming a trophy here and a trophy there until Trump’s vision of draining the swamp collapses into the very swamp we know he was talking about. They will drown him in vile pettiness.
They are stealing our election. Do not look to the GOP for succor. They are all in for the kill. This is larger than just Democrats and Republicans wanting to retain power; this is a massive coordinated, well funded attack by the “establishment elites,” funded by their financial cronies, to maintain the status quo. The organizers behind it don’t really care if the government is Constitutional, Socialist, Marxist or Fascists so long as the money brokers control the strings that make all us puppets dance to their tune.
John Kasich, Republican Governor of Ohio, a total establish bureaucrat, is licking his chops waiting to offer himself up once again as America’s best hope. Hope for what? Government through bipartisanship? That’s all he talks about. Hope is just wishful thinking as we learned after suffering eight years of “Hope and Change’ during the excruciating Obama days. Bipartisanship with Democrats simply means that our side caves in to their sides Progressive agenda, an agenda the American voters rejected in the past three elections and continue to reject with the recent primary election of firebrand Ala. Senatorial candidate, Judge Roy Moore.
Now we have to continue the fight, It is incumbent upon conservative voters everywhere to stand up and be counted, to understand, as Reagan cautioned, “Don’t look to Government to solve the problem, the government is the problem” and realize that…“There is a time when the operation of the machine becomes so odious, makes you so sick at heart, that you can’t take part; you can’t even passively take part, and you’ve got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, and you’ve got to make it stop. And you’ve got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, that unless you’re free, the machine will be prevented from working at all!.” …Mario Savio, UC Berkeley, Dec. 2, 1965.
The ‘machine’ is trying to save itself. With the alarming exodus of Trumps conservative cabinet secretaries, presidential advisers, associates and mid-level managers, it appears the deep state could win the battle after all. The next generation following us are becoming our enemies, brainwashed as they have been by the socialist dogma spewing from lecture stands in our colleges and universities. How can it be stopped? Can the swamp be drained? How do we address America’s history without being challenged over its every perceived error?
But what about the swamp? If you haven’t read The Art of the Deal, you can’t possibly understand Trumps tactics. He will get around to draining the swamp. It’s a three step plan with steps one and two almost completed. I don’t think a mere politician has the tactical skills to compete with Donald Trump. He’s a lot smarter than the average bear. More later.
