President Trump is Decisively Dealing With America’s Problems!

Pesident Trump is taking bold and LEGAL action to solve many of America’s long running problems in spite of a worthless Congress. Trump’s actions are forcing our self-centered and “do nothing” Congress to take legal action to deal with these things like they were supposed to do originally. In addition to Congress President Trump is also working against a totally dishonest Main Stream Media that is obsessed with helping destroy the Trump Presidency.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal DACA order that Congress has not bothered to fix.  The recension gives Congress six months to solve the problem legally. With the clear understanding that Congress is going to have to negotiate with him or he will veto whatever they send to his desk.

He rescinded Obama’s illegal Obamacare subsidies, which Congress did not agree to or do legally. Congress still has a short window to repeal and replace Obamacare with something that could actually work for the American people.

He signed an Executive Order directing the insurance regulatory agencies to remove any regulations that prevented people or groups from buying insurance across state lines. The order also directed the regulatory agencies to allow individuals to form groups, or join existing groups so they could buy insurance at lower group rates and to allow individuals to buy lower priced insurance plans that did not require people to buy coverage they did not need, like single males being required to buy coverage that had maternity benefits.

He refused to re-certify the ridiculous Iran Nuclear Deal. This effectively throws it back into Congress’ lap to try and make it better for America and the rest of the free world.

He and his Administration have dealt quickly and decisively with multiple disastrous hurricanes, multiple disastrous California wild fires and the worse mass murder in modern U.S. history.

He has met, and positively influenced, more world leaders in his first few months in office than Obama did in his eight years in office. Many world leaders are beginning to respect America again, and in many cases actually work with us to solve some of the world’s problems. This is happening in spite of the Democrat’s and RINO Republican’s rants to the contrary, the Main Stream Media’s obsession with dishonest reporting and fake news, and Obama “holdover’s” who are continuing their efforts to sabotage the Trump Presidency.

Nine months after President Trump was sworn in the ISIS capital of Raqqa was taken by a U.S. backed coalition of fighting forces!  It is amazing what is being accomplished with a change in the Commander in Chief, new battle tested military Commanders with the authority to make the decisions necessary to accomplish their objectives, and a change in the “Rules of Engagement”!

President Trump is accomplishing all this and more in spite of the fact that many of his chosen appointees, to various top positions in his administration, are being deliberately delayed by the Senate. This is another way that President Trump has exhibited his Senior Executive and Manager skills. He simply appointed qualified people to “acting positions” and watched the results to assure that they are doing the jobs well.

This is only a sample of what an amazing job President Trump is doing in spite of an unbelievable number of road blocks being constantly thrown out in front of him by the America hating “Never Trumpers”. This is a classic example of the difference between a highly qualified, skilled and successful MANAGER (President Trump) compared to an incompetent loser who constantly surrounds himself with incompetent sycophants and fails at everything (Obama). I wrote a detailed article about this in April and posted it here:  http://www.onlymakessense.com/business-management-101-trump-versus-obama-what-is-the-difference-between-successful-business-managers-and-incompetent-looser-managers/

 

 

A Total Disrespect for Authority and Open Hatred for America. How Did We Get to Such a Dark Place in America?

The Main Stream Media continues to “report” open displays of hatred for everything American. The most recent and visible examples of this were the over-paid professional athletes’ deliberate and disgusting disrespect for our flag and national anthem. One of the worst examples of this was the Baltimore Ravens refusing to stand up while our national anthem was playing before a game in England , and then they stood up to honor the playing of England’s national anthem, “God Save the Queen’!  This was a glaring example of how far the “America haters” are willing, and eager to go to show their hatred for everything American.

Based on my own life experiences I am really having a problem understanding how so many people in America openly hate America. From my earliest memories as a child I was taught that there were certain basic rules that I was expected to live by throughout my life. These basic rules were not complicated. They were:

  1. Respect the American flag and everything it stands for.
  2. Respect authority.

In addition to these two basic rules I was also taught that I was, “Blessed to be born in America”! Throughout my childhood and teen years I was reminded of this “blessing” on a periodic basis. The people that taught me this insisted that I understand that “being born in America” meant that I had unlimited opportunity to lead a happy and successful life and could overcome almost any obstacles that life placed in my path, if I really wanted to do that. Most over-paid professional athletics are perfect examples of being “blessed to be born in America”, but some of them are leading the anti-American protest?

Unfortunately there are a lot of people in America now who do not believe in the basic rules noted above, and do not believe that it is a “blessing to be born in America”. However, they do have a strong belief that they are somehow “entitled” to do as they please and be given anything they want with no negative consequences?

How did we did get to this “dark place in America” where so many people in America are willing, and in some cases eager to publicly display open hatred for everything American? It did not happen overnight. It has been building up for decades, became more visible during Obama’s eight years in office and then literally exploded onto the “national stage” during the last few months as “Trump Derangement Syndrome” reached epidemic proportions.

As I watched the “America haters” publicly attack everything American and flaunt it, it occurred to me that America is being viciously attacked from two directions. The primary attack is from the hard Left people who are obsessed with destroying America and making America become part of their “One World Order”. The second attack is coming from people in America who have become convinced that they are “entitled” and that “respect for authority” is an old and outdated principle that no longer has a place in America. The people in this second group are so obsessed with their belief that they are “entitled”, they are easily manipulated by the hard Left, ”new world order” America haters. That is why they are referred to by some people as “useful idiots”.

When Patriotic Americans stood up in November 2016 and elected Donald Trump as President of the United States of America the America haters and all the people in the “Washington Swamp” were literally shocked. They did not believe that anyone but their anointed one, Hillary could be elected. Clearly the “shock” has worn off now and the America haters have come together and are obsessed with one goal, destroy the Trump Presidency by ”any means necessary”. They are well aware that if the Trump Presidency survives their dreams of a “One world order” are finished or at least delayed indefinitely. Those of us who want America to survive must be vigilant and stand up for America as aggressively as the America haters are working to tear it down.

The America haters have good reason to be panicking. President Trump will never quit! He will drain the “Washington Cesspool” and “make America great again” if enough of us stand with him.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Left’s Open Hatred for America is Getting Louder and More Dangerous!

Over the last few months I have written and published a number of detailed articles about how irrational and unreasonable the Left’s hatred for America and anything “Conservative” has become. As I wrote each article I wanted to think that these public displays of hatred had peaked and we would begin to see an increase in public displays of patriotism. Since the November 2016 election we have seen a steady increase in public displays of patriotism, but unfortunately the hope that public displays of hatred for America had peaked was “wishful thinking”.

Here are just a few recent examples of irrational, unreasonable and public displays of open hatred for America:

  • An ESPN anchor went on a twitter tirade calling President Trump and his supporters “White Supremacist”. ESPN’s response was to issue a statement that “Jemele Hill had been counseled”. However when an anchor said something negative about Liberals on twitter in the past he was fired immediately. 
  • Democrat Representative Luis Gutiérrez called General John Kelly, a retired Marine Corps General, who is now President Trump’s Chief of Staff – a “disgrace to the uniform he used to wear” for standing by while Trump rescinded protections for undocumented immigrants who arrived as minors. General Kelly has served this country honorably for over 40 years!
  • Missouri state senator Maria Chappelle-Nadal posted on Face Book that, “I hope Trump is assassinated” and then refused to apologize when called out about it. In fact, when she was asked why she refused to apologize by a talk radio show host she went on another angry rant about how bad Trump is!
  • Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Moore and other self-appointed “Hollywood geniuses” publicly said that the hurricanes were karma for the states that were hit so hard because they voted for Trump!
  • On September 11 and 12 Congress unanimously passed a resolution condemning “white supremacist” groups and urging President Trump to strongly condemn these hate groups. The resolution referred to all hate groups and urged that they be labeled as “domestic terrorist groups”. While the KKK and Neo –Nazi groups were specifically referred to there was no mention of Antifa, BLM, Black Panthers, By Any Means Necessary or any other groups like them? The resolution was allegedly inspired by the “white supremacist” violence in Charlottesville, with no mention of Antifa and BLM (who were by far the most violent people in Charlottesville). Congress spent part of two days on this resolution while they are quickly running out of time to pass any desperately needed meaningful legislation?
  • George Clooney is moving his family back to America because it is getting too dangerous to live in their (heavily guarded) Italian villa. No explanation as to why it is getting too dangerous to live there? He is typical of the Left’s “elite” who can afford to live in gated communities with armed security, or even have their own private armed security staff, but yet he insist the rest of us should not be allowed to own guns!
  • Self-appointed “Hollywood Elites” used a hurricane fund raising telethon to loudly rant against climate change deniers. The Left refuses to acknowledge that scientific data indicates that there has NOT been any measurable change in the earth’s temperature in 18 years and the polar bear population is actually increasing. Plus the failed predictions (by supposed climate experts, who are still highly paid public speakers) that New York City and other coastal cities would be under water in the 1990’s!
  • Liberals are posting disgusting comments on internet articles and social media about Eric Bolling’s son dying. Here is one of the disgusting examples, “Eric Bolling is out there spewing venom every day. Payback is best served dead!”

Where are the Democrats and the Main Stream Media in their condemnation of these open acts of hatred for America?  Many of these acts are actually treason! Where are the repercussions and consequences for these criminal acts (I think they are coming soon).

The Main Stream Media, Everyone Else on the Left and the RINO Republicans Must be Living in a Parallel Universe?

As I watch the Main Stream Media (MSM) coverage of the events that happened last weekend in Charlottesville I am dumbfounded! The MSM, Democrats, RINO Republicans and everyone else that hates President Trump are all screaming that it was a “white extremist” event and somehow President Trump is to blame for it? They are also screaming that President Trump and his racist supporters are responsible for the rampart racism in America? The MSM and all the other Trump haters went even crazier when President Trump stated that there were bad people on both sides in Charlottesville!

If you watch any video or photos of the violence in Charlottesville you will clearly see that Antifa and BLM organized and paid protesters incited the violence, yet no one in the MSM or any of the Trump haters will acknowledge that.

The Charlottesville rally was a legal organized event to protest the removal of a Civil war statue. They had a rally permit, which they had to go to court to get. It was originally referred to as a “white lives matter” rally but immediately began to be called a white supremacist or extremist rally by the MSM. The protesters did not have a permit but were allowed to congregate and attack the people in the legal rally with clubs, urine, feces and chemical filled balloons, bottles and pepper spray, while the police initially stood by and let it happen. I saw one photo of a man using an aerosol spray can and cigarette lighter to create an improvised flame thrower to try and burn rally participants. When a “reporter”(?) asked him about it he claimed that he found the can on the ground and was just using it to defend himself, and that is what the “reporter”(?) published!

Antifa and BLM have been carrying out this kind of organized and paid for violence since their inception when Obama was President, with the MSM completely ignoring it and very few people being arrested and prosecuted. When the Mayor of Portland demanded to know why the Portland police handled a protest like they did in June the Portland Police Chief responded by posting an open letter to the Mayor detailing how they and a small legal rally were attacked by Antifa and BLM protesters, including using sling shots to launch feces, urine and chemical filled balloons and poison rodent bombs into their ranks plus using pepper spray, throwing water bottles and bricks and using clubs. Antifa and BLM violent protesters obviously come to protest events well prepared to be violent.  Many of them wear all black clothes, mask and protective gear like motorcycle helmets.

The police could have prevented the violence in Charlottesville, or at least reduced it to some degree if they had tried to keep the two groups apart and forced the violent protesters to disperse. But, somehow, according to the MSM and all the Trump haters it is still President Trump and his racist supporters who are responsible for all the violence.

Every day this week MSM outlets have been giving air time to anyone who will verbally attack President Trump (and his alleged racist white supporters). This included the cofounder of the national BLM organization who said that “white speech” is hate speech and therefore is not protected by the Constitution. But blocking freeways and chanting about killing police officers is OK?

Now even some FOX NEWS hosts are angrily pilling on!  Without Eric Bolling “The Specialist” at 5:00 is the latest “cannot watch” FOX show!

Clearly some people are living in a parallel universe?

 

Washington is Not a Swamp. It is a Cesspool!

Merriam Webster definitions of cesspool:

  1. an underground reservoir for liquid waste (such as household sewage)
  2. a filthy, evil, corrupt place or state (a cesspool of corruption)

Here is a tiny sample of Washington’s “filthy, evil, corruption”:

The first chapter of Eric Bolling’s new book, “The Swamp” begins with a detailed description of Senator Ted Kennedy’s callous indifference to killing Mary Jo Kopechne in what seems to me to be a clear case of aggravated manslaughter. While she was dying trapped in the submerged car, in a small pocket of air, he was being consumed with trying to figure out how to prevent this from interfering with his plans to be President! If you look at the facts in the case she most likely could have been saved had he alerted authorities immediately!  Even after this he was repeatedly re-elected to the Senate until his death 40 years later, and was considered to be a superstar to all liberals. He was even given a “state funeral” as if he was President when he died!

Also in the first chapter of the book, “The Swamp”:  “the police reporting site, Capitol Hill Blue, did a study of then-current Congress members arrest records and reported that twenty nine had been accused of spousal abuse, seven had been arrested for fraud, nineteen had been accused of writing bad checks, one hundred and seventeen had bankrupted at least two businesses, three had been arrested for assault, seventy one were unable to qualify for credit cards, and eight had been arrested for shoplifting.  Another Capitol Hill Blue survey found that in 1998 alone 84 of 535 members of Congress had been stopped for drunk driving. But in all cases they were released by the loyal United States Capitol Police after claiming congressional immunity”!!!

Sharyl Attkisson’s new book, “Smear’ is another, long and detailed, book about the astonishing level of corruption that exists in Washington today, and has existed for decades! One example of unbelievable corruption,  that she details, is that there are Congressional staffers, whose salaries and expense accounts are paid with tax payer dollars, whose sole duties are to dig up dirt on the opposition, or create it, and then share it with friendly Main Stream Media people who will eagerly publish it as “news”! As noted above this is a long and detailed book that is well worth the effort to read it. And if you really want to fully appreciate this book I strongly suggest you read her first book, “Stonewalled” before you read “Smear”. It is a horrifying description of how traitorous the Washington Cesspool really is, including various government agencies and the Main Stream Media.

Maxine Waters lives in a high end gated community in California, which is not in her district, and has a residence in Washington. How does she do this on $175,000 per year? She does it by doing whatever she wants to do with tax payer dollars, like illegally using bank bailout funds to save a California bank her husband had stock in and was also a paid member of the bank’s board of directors. This was clearly a federal crime that the bi-partisan Congressional Ethics Commission spent over a million dollars investigating but could not agree on any recommendations for action against her! This is why some Republicans tried to pass legislation earlier this year to eliminate this expensive “sham” commission, but they were loudly shouted down by Democrats and RINO Republicans who want to keep this “sham” commission so they can continue to “whitewash” any potential investigations of Congressional wrong doing they want to cover up.

Shelia Jackson Lee, like Maxine Waters and many other members of the House of Representatives, remains in Congress solely because her district lines were deliberately drawn to guarantee that. I watched her being interviewed by Neil Cavuto earlier this week and she was furious that he dared to question her public declaration that she would not vote for ANYTHING that the Republicans wanted to do, especially if Trump wanted it! Another bit of her history that is “revealing” about the level of corruption in Washington is about the voter registrations in her district. Several years ago a non-partisan voter integrity organization began a study of the registered voters in her district. They began by researching the registered Democrats in her district where five or more had the same address, and then moved on to four or more with the same address. What they found was that many of the multiple registered voter addresses did not exist, or were not residential addresses or could not possible be reasonable living quarters for multiple adults. No surprise that this non-partisan voter integrity organization was one of the groups that was targeted, and then shut down  by Obama’s criminal IRS and Department of Injustice.

Recently I saw a collection of video footage of Chuck Schumer where he was speaking on the floor of the Senate in the past and since President Trump was elected……This could not be the same person, but it is!

Nancy Pelosi. Do I really need to elaborate on this deranged person?

John Lewis is continues to play off of what he did over 50 years ago, while living a life of luxury with an expensive Washington townhouse, on his $175,000 a year Congressional Salary?

John Podesta, Hillary’s campaign chair, and former partner in an international consulting firm that did work for foreign governments and foreign business entities, was called to testify before a closed door Congressional committee. When he exited the hearing he gave an impromptu press conference and talked about what he was asked and his answers. He lied about this so blatantly that the committee chair person immediately called him out publicly!

Insider leaks from people in Congress and Obama holdovers are literally doing criminal damage to America, with eager help from the Main Stream Media. In some cases testimony from closed door Congressional hearings has been leaked before the hearing was over!

Trained and paid protest organizers are organizing, and in some cases paying, protesters to attack every Republican appearance in their district or state! The same is not true for Democrats!  

Recent surveys, by somewhat reputable survey organizations, show noticeable increases in the percent of Democrats who openly say that they ARE NOT PROUD TO BE AMERICAN!

You will not hear anything about any of this from the Main Stream Media.

Clearly the Washington Cesspool is a huge financial criminal organization that the Democrats and RINO Republicans suddenly see as being threatened by the Trump Administration and the few actual Conservatives in Washington. The Democrats and RINO Republicans are so desperate to save the Cesspool they will do anything to save it. What is even more astonishing about all this is that these people have NO FEAR of any repercussions for their actions! If Washington’s history is any indication of what to expect they seem to be justified in their lack of fear of any repercussions regardless of what they do. Time will tell if this is still true. My money is on the Trump Administration.

 

 

 

Are We Winning the War On Our Constitution? I think We Are Now!

RINO Republicans, Democrats and the Main Stream Media Continue to Openly Work at Destroying our Constitutional Republic Form of Government!

I first became aware of the organized efforts to destroy America about ten years ago.   Glen Beck was on FOX NEWS at 5 p.m. every day and did a series of shows with various guests who talked about the changing demographics in America. During this series of shows Glen came to the conclusion that America was almost at the “breaking point” based on these changing demographics and that we were one election away from reaching a point where our Constitutional Republic form of government could not survive. He was right about the changing demographics, but was wrong about us being one election away from America being “fundamentally changed”.

Unfortunately the RINO Republicans, Democrats and the Main Stream Media (MSM) still believe so strongly that the changing demographics are in their favor that they continue to openly work at destroying the Trump Administration and “fundamentally changing” America. Based on everything I see happening now they are actually ramping up their efforts to destroy our Constitution. It is also obvious that they are so certain that their “side “ will win their war on our Constitution that they do not appear to have any concerns about any possible retribution resulting from their Un-American activities. We have judges ignoring the Constitution (and their oath of office) and legislating from the bench, some Liberal governors and mayors publicly defying laws and the Trump Administration by providing sanctuary to illegal immigrants and refusing to acknowledge the withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accord, Rino Republicans who are joining the Democrats in their efforts to shut down America at any cost and the MSM “piling on” with what can only be described as frantic “TDS” (Trump Derangement Syndrome).

Last week I wrote about my increasing belief that what the Rino Republicans, Democrats and MSM are doing will actually benefit Conservatives in the 2018 and 2020 elections on a state and national level. Every time I log into the internet or turn on the TV I become more convinced that this is true and I wonder how these America haters do not see the increasing level of anger they are generating against them in “middle America”!

On a positive note, we are starting to see the benefits of having a “Department of Justice” again. Tim Kaine’s son is facing criminal charges for his participation in a violent anti-Trump protest in Minnesota, there were multiple arrests in Washington State this past weekend when masked protesters tried to violently disrupt a legal pro Trump rally, a 25 year old woman (who was a Sanders supporter and anti-Trump on social media) was just arrested for leaking a secret NSA report to the media and more states are passing laws increasing the criminal penalties for illegal protest, violently disrupting legal rallies and illegally blocking traffic. America haters should take note that during the Trump Administration there are going to be negative consequences for your actions!

As I wrote last week, it is not going to be easy and it is not going to happen quickly but I do believe that those of us that still believe in the Constitution will win what has become an open “battle for America”, if we continue to stand against the America haters like we did in November 2016!  America became the greatest nation on earth because of what our Founding Fathers gave us, the Constitution. Especially the right to free speech, the right to own guns, and good old American Capitalism!

The Deliberate Destruction of the “Moral Fiber” of America is Now at Crisis Level!

Moral: of or relating to principles of right and wrong in behavior

Fiber: essential structure or character – the very fiber of a person’s being

Over the last few years I have become increasingly dismayed at some of the things I continually hear and see happening in America. As I watched the Democrats, RINO Republicans and Main Stream Media (MSM) over the last few days I noticed they all have one thing in common, a total lack of MORALITY!  If you really think about it, everything they do can be viewed as a deliberate attack on the “moral fiber” of our American way of life. Whether this is a specific “Liberal” plan or not, this is how they are steadily achieving their goal of maintaining the status quo in Washington, D.C .For them the “Swamp” must remain in place for their personal pleasure and enrichment. And too many people in America have become part of their plan! Politicians of all stripes, PARENTS, college and school administrators, school teachers, and professors are, wittingly or unwittingly, steadily helping the Liberals destroy the “moral fiber“ of America.

Here are a few examples of the increasing lack of morality in America:

The Democrats are obsessed with destroying the Trump Presidency, and the RINO Republicans and MSM are helping them. They are all obviously willing to say and do anything imaginable, even immoral to accomplish that objective.

Politicians from all parties are proving to be Academy Award winning level actors including two RINO’s I once had some level of faith in, Rubio and Kasich. These two RINO’s, and others, showed their true colors when they lost the Republican primary to Trump. They stood on the debate stage, on camera and took the oath to support the winning candidate whoever it was, and then immediately refused to honor that oath as soon as they lost!

Many of our school systems are allowing hard Left radicals to continue to teach (indoctrinate) students and they are graduating students who can barely read or write (political correctness). In some instances grade school teachers are openly participating in violent protest, radical rallies and “acting out” in the class rooms and are still “teaching”.

Our colleges and universities are overwhelmingly being run by hard Left radicals and staffed by hard Left professors. In many cases radical student groups have literally “occupied” the schools and are openly organizing disruptive activities. Even schools like Notre Dame are beginning to experience this outrageous behavior.

One of the most influential groups of people contributing to the decaying morality in America is PARENTS”! Some parents joined in with the students who walked out of the recent Notre Dame Graduation ceremony when V. P. Mike Pence began to speak.

The Democratic National Committee has become one of the most corrupt and crude organizations in the history of America. Openly rigging the primary for Hillary and then electing a new chairman with a very dirty history who is traveling around America giving profanity laced speeches.

At the California State Democratic Convention the election of the new chair person was so contentious that the runner up refused to concede and has hired lawyers to sue the organization. Also during the convention the attendees performed one of the crudest acts I have ever seen an organization like this do publicly. A poorly dressed man standing at the speaker podium looked at the people standing around him on the packed stage, smiled, leaned into the microphone, and said “Trump”. Instantly everyone in camera view raised BOTH hands in a “middle finger salute” with a big smile on their faces! Yes, this was on the stage at the California State Democratic Party Convention!

As noted earlier the Democrats, RINO Republicans, and MSM are totally lacking in MORALITY and are totally obsessed with maintaining the status quo in Washington, no matter what the cost to America is!

What can we do about this “crisis”? Like we did in November 2016, we must stand up and make our voices heard. Insist on term limits and refuse to support politicians, organizations or media outlets that are dishonest and UN-American. Let President Trump know we support his Administration ANY WAY HE NEEDS US TO!

I have written a number of detailed articles about everything I have touched on here and a variety of other similar topics. You can find them all here on my website.

 

 

Term Limits and Special Interest (January 7, 2017)

Sent to me by a friend who found it on the internet, origin unknown but appropriate:

“All politicians should be limited to two terms…..

One in office and one in prison

Works in Chicago”

I wrote and published my first article about Term Limits and  Special Interest in May, 2015. I have rewritten that article to make it more current and am republishing it for two reasons.

  1. Everything that has happened in America leading up to, and especially after the election on November 8.
  2. With the new Administration taking office on January 20 we actually have an opportunity to take America back from the Rino/Liberal corrupt and self-serving Washington politicians and the anarchist and irrational self-serving Liberals refusing to accept the November election results.

Based on everything I have read and been told over the years the Founding Fathers saw elected office as a patriotic public service especially on a national level. In fact they were concerned about elected officials becoming professional politicians. This is evidenced by Benjamin Franklin’s reply to a woman who asked him a question as he exited Independence Hall with the announcement that they had agreed on a final proposed Constitution for our new country. She asked, “What have you given us Sir, a Republic or a Monarchy?” Without hesitation he replied, “A Republic Madam, if you can keep it”. To me this confirms that the Founding Fathers feared the concept of a national government run by career politicians. Every time I read anything about or think about our Founding Fathers I am amazed at how brilliant and far sighted these men were. The fact that such a diverse group of men agreed on a document, that is our current Constitution, is significant and Benjamin Franklin’s reply to the question is the evidence. As I wrote this article a comment by Jaun Williams in his recent book, “We the People” really resonated with me. He questioned what our Founding Father’s reaction would be if they could walk the streets of America today. It was a reference to what America is like today politically versus their vision for its future.

Every day I am literally stunned when I see the American flag trampled on here in America!, hear people shout down free speech at our colleges and universities, or hear people publicly say things like what Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg said about our Constitution. In a televised interview she advised the people trying to form a new Egyptian government that they “should not use the US Constitution as a model for their new constitution”.  This is a life time member of the Supreme Court of the United States of America publicly saying that our Constitution is “bad”!

How did we get to this place in America? I think the answer to my question is simple. It is that too often money and power bring corruption. All you have to do is turn on the news, look at a newspaper or open up your internet browser to see endless examples of corruption and mismanagement of public funds on every level, local, state and national. In my local paper I periodically see reports of local officials or their staff members committing fraud or outright theft. At the state level it is even worse and on the national level it dominates the news way too often. Unfortunately this is becoming the new “norm” where the only thing that matters to the ideologues on the “Left” and the RINO Republicans is what is in their personal best interest. To these people what is morally and ethically right, is in violation of applicable regulations, and in some cases outright illegal does not matter. Here are a few examples:

Obama’s public denigrating objections to the “Citizens United” Supreme Court decision. This from a man who publicly committed to accepting matching funds (with its restrictive fund raising regulations) for his first presidential campaign but then ignored the commitment and  went on to break all campaign fund raising records with no concern for any related ethical or legal regulations regarding campaign fund raising. This included his campaign headquarters refusing to use approved software which would eliminate illegal donations from the same donor or possible foreign donors. He also had the CEO of Goggle staffing, paying for and managing a team of high end technicians to “mine” data and maximize campaign donations and election efforts. Loud public objections to the “Citizens United” decision have now been adopted by every ideologue on the “Left” including Hillary. It seems massive infusions of cash from any source are only OK when it is to the Liberals benefit!

A commissioner with the Federal Elections Commission recently ruled that Harry Reid could keep all the money left in his reelection campaign fund and use it to fund a “transition office”. It seems that “loose” regulation of unspent campaign funds is common by the FEC, especially under the Obama administration.

Lifelong professed Socialist Bernie Sanders and his family are Ok with using “other people’s money” for their personal benefit. In the past Bernie’s wife and daughter were paid annual salaries out of his senate reelection funds with questionable job titles and duties. Bernie’s wife was also involved in questionable financial transactions involving millions of dollars when she was president of Vermont College. After the primary election they bought their third home, which is an expensive “vacation” home.

The mayors of Chicago, San Francisco and other “sanctuary cites” doubled down in recent press conferences reinforcing there decision to be “sanctuary cities”. Some of them have pledged tax dollars to pay the legal fees for illegals fighting deportation.

The California legislature hired Eric Holder to help them oppose the Trump Presidency in court before Trump is sworn in. This is obviously tax payer dollars. For the record Eric Holder is the only U.S. cabinet member in history to be held in “Contempt of Congress” for deliberately lying to Congress and deliberately withholding information from Congress.  I actually watched his testimony before Congress on two occasions and it was obvious that he was not only guilty of both charges, he did it with an arrogant indifference, and then made public speeches afterward claiming it was all because of his race!

Obama made illegal recess appointments to the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB). The NLRB, with its new members immediately began to issue a stream of new regulations on their own, not through Congress. These regulations had   dramatic negative effects on many American businesses. The NLRB continued to do this unabated until the law suit filed against the recess appointments finally made it to the Supreme Court where the ruling against the appointments was 9 to 0.Unfortunately most of the damages done by all the new regulations issued by the NLRB during the time it took for the case to make it to the Supreme Court cannot be recovered and many of the regulations are still being enforced by the Obama administration while the legality of the regulations is being litigated.

Senator Schumer has publicly announced that the Democrats in the Senate will question all of President Elect Trump’s picks for his cabinet and other positions which require Senate approval, and that he expects the process to take months. Obama’s picks were approved in days when he was elected in 2008. Schumer also publicly said that NONE of President Elect Trump’s picks for the Supreme Court would get approved by the Senate in the next FOUR years if they did not meet what the Democrats considered to be acceptable standards. RINOs McCain and Graham made this situation even worse by publicly acknowledging that “some” of President Elect Trump’s picks did need to be “questioned”. This public position by the RINOs is the exact opposite of the public position they took regarding Obama’s picks over the last eight years. In fact McCain publicly justified his quick votes for Obama’s picks by publicly saying the President was entitled to choose who he wanted for these positions.

Keith Ellison, Democrat Representative from Minnesota is the leading contender to be the new head of the Democratic National Committee (DNC). He is the only member of Congress to be sworn in on the Koran, is an avowed member of radical Muslim organizations like CAIR, has made pilgrimages to radical Muslim countries (paid for by radical Muslim organizations) and has published articles demanding that all white people pay slave reparations to all black people (and other similar topics) using his Muslim name Keith E Hakim. Obama has endorsed his run for DNC Chair.

Donna Brazile is still the acting head of the DNC even though details of some of her unethical/corrupt activities while she was in this position and was a CNN correspondent have been made public. She was fired from CNN for these same actions.

There was a remarkable book, “THE CONFESSIONS OF CONGRESSMAN X” published in 2015.  It is only 69 pages and you have to order it on-line, but it is well worth the effort. It details just how dirty you have to be to keep a Congressional seat in Washington.

Obviously this list of examples of what a “cesspool” Washington is could be endless about people from all political parties or no solid political affiliation, but I think these examples illustrate how broken our political system is today, especially on a national level.

Getting President Elect Trump elected was only the beginning. We must continue to support him, his staff and the actual Conservatives who are in Washington so Trump can do what he set out to do. Stay informed and involved. Communicate with your elected representatives and demand changes regarding term limits, open public records, transparency in all government activities, fiscal responsibility, and reasonable performance standards for all government employees.  

Trying to Reason With Liberals can be Challenging

As I researched, studied and wrote about where we are in politics in America today one thing kept coming back up in my thought process. It was how Liberals could be so irrational and unreasonable in their beliefs and their position on issues.  I actually had a lengthy discussion about this with some of the other “old guys” at my gym one morning, including a very liberal psychology professor. The consensus of opinion was that the reasoning portion of the brain simply does not work in people who are liberal.

The more I thought about this the more I began to believe that the “left brain, right brain” explanation that I wrote about earlier this year is too simplistic. There are too many different people who hold liberal views for this simple explanation to be valid. There are people from all races, backgrounds and professions who are Liberal. Many are very intelligent, highly educated and very successful in their chosen profession.

As I studied this subject and tried to figure out how to understand and interact with people who are Liberals, I noticed that they usually fall into one of five different groups:

  1. Liberals who are totally uninformed about facts regarding issues and do not have any interest in being informed.
  2. Liberals who think that they are informed when they are actually misinformed. This is because the people they usually associate with have deeply held liberal views which they constantly share with their friends.
  3. Liberals who acknowledge that Liberalism is not perfect but openly say that they prefer it over Conservatism. These people are different from the people in group “4”. They are much less demanding and personal agenda driven. Their mindset is more attuned to a “live and let live” lifestyle.

4.Liberals who simply want things to be the way they want it to be even if it is not logical or ethical. Unfortunately, too many of the young people in America today are in this group. There is no other way to explain how so many of them supported a professed Socialist for President or organized protests groups like Occupy or BLM.

  1. Liberals who are so agenda driven that they are deliberately working to make America be a Socialist/Communist country.

As I thought about how different Liberals can be in some ways, I also noticed that they do have some things in common:

Many of these Liberals had a bad life experience that shaped their views. Something like a failed business or personal relationship that they refuse to acknowledge was their fault.

Almost all Liberals are Fox News haters. They cannot tolerate any opinion about anything other their own.

Trying to reason with most Liberals can be challenging. Some will politely ignore you, some will question you and some will become angry and absolutely nasty in their responses to you.

I have actually tried to understand how some of these Liberals have the views that they do, and even tried to have a rational exchange of ideas/facts with some of them, with limited success

During some of my attempts to interact with various Liberals I noticed that some had to suspend all semblances of reason, ethics, and honesty to profess such strongly held liberal views. I cannot understand people who can do this and will simply avoid those that do in the future.

I do still believe that there are some people with liberal views that can be positively influenced, but based on my experiences in recent years I will “pick my battles” more carefully in the future. I ask all of my fellow conservatives and Libertarians to do the same. We cannot just give up and allow the Liberal base in America to continue to grow!

The Big Lie, About Obama’s Approval Rating

For some time now I have been hearing about Obama’s approval being at “record highs”. This morning I heard that it was at 58%. I find it odd that very few who report on Obama’s approval rating, including Fox, acknowledge who provided the report and its origin. or dares to publicly question it? This is just one more example of the media being PC. The price for the media to not be pc is simply too high. It is extremely rare for anyone to dare to publicly question anything about Obama personally! I have also noticed that on the rare occasion when people in media do question any Obama  actions they usually preface their comments, or end them with saying how much they admire Obama, or a similar statement. The price to do otherwise is apparently too high in American media.  A perfect example of this is Charles Krauthammer, a regular Fox News contributor. He is a Dr. (Psychiatrist) who has never been intimidated by anything, including being permanently paralyzed from the neck down when he was in medical school. He still graduated with his class with honors, married his long time sweetheart, has children,  drives his own specially built car which he operates entirely with only his fingers on his right hand, has a very accomplished  career as a columnist  and Fox News contributor, and writes bestselling books. In short he is a very successful person and the consummate professional. During Obama’s first term he said that in his professional opinion Obama was a “pathological narcissist”. A few days later he made the public observation that he would not be making a public analysis of anyone again. The firestorm he must have endured to be “cowed” to this point is inconceivable! Note, I actually researched the term “pathological narcissists” and it seemed to me that it was a “text book” diagnosis for Obama.

The Fox report on Obama’s approval ratings this morning was in  the context that he was the first President in history to be the ”star”  in a Presidential campaign when he was not the candidate. On a side note they did report that Obama mentioned himself 207 times in recent campaign speeches including saying that if Trump is elected the Obama legacy will be destroyed!

Anyone who has been interested in history and followed current events at any level over the last few decades, or even in recent years has to be amazed at how biased (corrupt) and arrogant the Main Stream Media (MSM) has become in their reporting and opinion of the “average citizen” in America since Obama became a presidential candidate. The Obama approval rating and how the MSM reports on it, and Obama personally are glaring examples of how Politically Correct (P.C). America has become.

When anyone who supports Hillary is asked a simple question,, “can you name one thing Hillary accomplished as Secretary of State” they cannot  answer the question. The same thing happens when you change it to “her 30 years in public service”. The facts are that she did accomplish a lot, but none of it was good! I believe that history will show that Obama’s record will be SIGNIFICANTLY worse than Hillary’s (unless she is elected President) because he had unlimited opportunity to build a public record during his two terms as President of the United States of America. Unfortunately getting elected President, and reelected, was his only “positive” accomplishment (the first person of color to be elected to be President of the United States of America).

I am absolutely certain that history will show that Obama was the WORSE President in American history. He will leave America in such a weak position in every way that it is doubtful that we can recover! Yet he and his rabid sycophant supporters continue to “scream” about his extraordinary accomplishments? It is still astonishing to me that so many people not only believe this but angrily argue that this is true?  We have clearly reached the epitome in PC politics in America.

I first became aware of how being PC was becoming more noticeable in American politics when I got more involved in politics during the Jimmy Carter years. I noticed that America was becoming more polarized politically and I am sorry to say less patriotic. I was happy and proud to see that this changed to a noticeable positive degree during the Regan years with more Americans being less political and more focused on what was good for America. Political polarization came back with a vengeance during the Clinton Presidency but largely disappeared during President (43) Bush’s presidency when Americans put America first and rallied around the president after 911. However this welcome reduction in being PC and the surge in patriotism only lasted into the first part of President Bush’s second term. Then PC politics began to “rear its ugly head” again, exploded during Obama’s Presidential campaign and went on steroids during his time in the Oval Office. As I studied and wrote about the Obama Administration’s obsession with PC politics it became clear that throughout history there has been a direct correlation between a rise in PC politics and a direct decline in Patriotism.  This is very obvious anytime you are exposed to the MSM in America today.

Obama’s legacy in history will be that his Administration was so obsessed with being PC that his Presidency was an absolute failure in every way. For some time now I have been convinced that the Obama Administration will leave America in such a weak position in every way that it is doubtful that we can recover. I am so convinced of this that I began to research, document and write detailed articles about it earlier this year.in an effort to educate people about what is really happening in America. This will be my 45th article to date and hopefully not my last (depending on the current election results).

I normally do not post articles that have what could be too may distracting links. Consequently I am posting only links to two of my 44 recent articles at the bottom of this article in an effort to make my case that the Obama Administration has been an absolute failure in every way. Equally disappointing is that the Obama Administration and their sycophant supporters, including the MSM literally scream about all the great things this administration has accomplished (ABSOLUTE LIES). One obvious example of the ridiculous lies is, “we are reducing the deficit at the fasted rate in history”! Really!!!???  And I have not seen anyone in the media, except some people on Fox News, call the Obama Administration out on this ridiculous lie?

The first article I linked below is about our national debt exceeding our Gross Domestic Product.(it is not as complicated as it seems. Please read the article). To put this in perspective the only time in history this has happened in America was late in WWII and we lived in an entirely different time then patriotically and politically. Throughout history it has been extremely rare for a country to survive a national debt crisis like this. The Liberals love to “blame it on Bush” and now “blame it on Republicans”: but the facts prove otherwise.

The second article linked  below is about the real unemployment rate in America. The Obama Administration loudly brags about how many jobs it has created and that they have brought unemployment down to 4.9%. Really!!?? The facts prove it is the opposite!

Counting this one, there are now 45 articles posted on my website and on two other public forums that I write for but I think these two adequately explain why America cannot survive a Hillary Presidency.

The “Stench” Coming out of the Department of Injustice is Unbearable

 

Over the years I have noticed that the DOJ did not always function as the “Department of Justice”. I have written about this in several previous articles. However, in recent months it has become obvious that the DOJ is a totally racial, political, and ideology driven organization and that it is assuring every other Federal agency follows suit (including the formerly highly respected FBI).

I first noticed open racial politics and corruption in the DOJ in early 2009 when one of Eric Holder’s first official acts as AG was to throw out the blatant voter intimidation convictions of the Philadelphia Black Panthers, which happened during the 2008 Presidential Election. This action alone generated a noticeable increase in voter intimidation complaints during the 2010, 2012, and 2014 elections, with no follow up action by the DOJ.

As I paid more attention to what was happening at the DOJ during Obama’s first term it became clear that everything the DOJ did was racially and politically motivated. In October of 2011 a former career DOJ Attorney, J. Christian Adams released his book, “Injustice”. It details how immediately and openly corrupt the DOJ became when Obama was elected.

Here is part of what I wrote about the DOJ in a recent article about voter fraud and intimidation. Under Eric Holder the Department of Injustice ”policy” regarding voter fraud and voter intimidation became, “there is no such thing as voter intimidation or voter fraud if it is against white people”. As noted above, J Christian Adams documents this in his book. Here is one quote from the book, “Unfortunately, despite the best efforts of many DOJ attorneys, DOJ officials have repeatedly chosen not to enforce the law faithfully – and often deliberately take the side of the wrongdoers –in corrupt displays of racial and political favoritism”.

I recently discovered another fascinating book about the corruption of the DOJ. It was published in 2014. It is, “Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice” by Sidney Powell. She is a Constitutional, career defense attorney who has successfully argued a number of cases before the Supreme Court. This is a long, detailed and even more upsetting book than the book “Injustice “. As I read it I realized that it confirmed in infinite detail what I had already noticed and written about extensively, which was how quickly the DOJ had become so corrupt and how widespread the corruption is. The only way this was possible was because President Johnson planted the seeds for that to happen but Bill Clinton actually created the “Department of Injustice” during his two terms as President.

In addition to making sure the DOJ was staffed with as many partisan attorneys as he could during his two terms in office, President Clinton also authorized a big hiring push late in his second term. Most of these people managed to stay with the DOJ during President Bush’s two terms because it is practically impossible to fire a U.S. Government employee. Additionally the Bush Administration had to deal with 9/11 happening only 7 months and 21 days after he was sworn in as President. Plus the long term effects of that tragedy as well as the long term effects on the U.S. economy of the “housing bubble bust”.

There is ample data to confirm that “911” and the “housing bubble bust” were in fact the results of Bill Clinton’s policies and actions during his two terms in office. One was how he used the DOJ to force banks to take subprime loans and then signed an executive order in 1995 allowing the banks to package these subprime loans and then sell them as securities. The housing bubble would not have happened without the DOJ being involved.

In her book Sidney Powell writes in detail about how it is not just the DOJ now. The DOJ corruption has actually spread down into every level of our judicial system. Toward the end of the book she writes about how frustrating it had become for her to continue to practice law! It is easy to see how that would be the case with an honest and ethical lawyer when you have U.S. Government attorneys doing things like lying under oath, withholding evidence, fabricating evidence, conspiring with judges to influence cases and getting away with it while refusing to prosecute blatant Federal crimes like the IRS illegal targeting of conservative groups, “Fast and Furious” and NOW “Emailgate”

When you look at every department in the Obama Administration and both houses of Congress, it is obvious that it is not just our legal system that has become so corrupt that it is dysfunctional. None of this could have happened without a totally corrupt DOJ!  It is also obvious that the Clintons have played a major role in bringing us to where we are in America, while enriching themselves and their friends at the expense of people who could least afford it (like the starving and dying people in Haiti).

Trump is certainly not perfect but the alternative is absolutely unacceptable!

 

 

The Department of Injustice Sues Georgia School System

On July 15, 2015 the DOJ (now known as the “Department of Injustice”) sent a 22 page legal notice to Georgia Governor Nathen Deal and Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens informing them that the Department had determined that Georgia’s GNETS program (Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Support) was in violation of the Federal laws against “separate facilities” for different groups of students in school systems. The notice goes into great detail about what they believe are the deficiencies in Georgia’s GNETS program. One of their major concerns is that students in the GNETS facilities do not have “equal access to extracurricular activities like after school sports or clubs”.

According to the Georgia Department of Education website, GNETS was created in 1970. This is how the website describes it: “The Georgia Network for Educational and Therapeutic Support (GNETS) is comprised of 24 programs which support the local school systems’ continuum of services for students with disabilities, ages 3-21. The programs provide comprehensive educational and therapeutic support services to students who might otherwise require residential or other more restrictive placements due to the severity of one or more of the characteristics of the disability category of emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD).”

In other words, GNETS was created specifically to provide an education for students who might otherwise have to be institutionalized!  As noted above these are students who have psychological or behavior disorders that causes them be a potential threat to themselves and/or other students/people. These facilities are usually “locked down” where people have to be “buzzed in and out”, that are operated by dedicated and highly qualified professionals.

So now the Obama Administration and the State of Georgia are engaged in extended and expensive litigation over whether or not the State of Georgia can continue to provide an education for these special needs students, or just lock them up in institutions.  Surely the Obama “Department of Injustice” has other places to spend (waste) our Federal tax dollars?

Is your school system next?

The Left’s Deliberate Lies, Disgusting Dishonesty, and Insulting Disrespect

In most of my writing in the past I have referred to Obama as President Obama out of respect for the office of President of The United States of America. Based on his reactions to the Orlando Massacre, and his “kool aid” drinking supporter’s similar reactions, I cannot, will not do that again! They have not only been blatantly dishonest in their comments and actions, they have been insultingly disrespectful to the victims and their families and friends. Regarding Obama specifically he has been described as being “petulant” and behaving in a manner that is beneath anyone who occupies the office of President of the United States of America. Unfortunately this sort of behavior is “Standard Operating Procedure” for Obama and most of his supporters, but their behavior this week finally crossed a line that cannot be ignored. Even some of the people who usually insist that Obama can “do no wrong” and some members of the usually compliant media have acknowledged this.

It has been abundantly evident this week that the Obama Administration’s policy of “never let a crisis go to waste” has been in full effect. And to make matters worse, they no longer appear to make any effort to disguise their obsessive pursuit of absolute and permanent power, which requires the destruction of our Constitution.

Obama did multiple press conferences and speeches to rant about Republicans and guns. To quote Trump early in the week, “President Obama is madder at me than the terrorist”.

Obama did not even call the Governor of Florida to offer his condolences or offer any Federal assistance that was needed. The Governor is a Republican.

When Obama and “crazy uncle” Joe Biden did finally go to Orlando Obama used the occasion to rant about guns and Republicans. Sometimes I wonder if Obama actually has a conscious.

For those of you who are not fully aware of it there are more than enough gun laws on the books NOW to make America much safer. However if they were properly enforced it would negate the deliberate and blatant lies the “Left” constantly spew in their  obsession with eliminating the 2nd Amendment. It is important to note here that the 2nd Amendment is not all the “Left” wants to destroy. However it is the only thing standing in the way of the destruction of the rest of the Constitution (think about that for a moment…). I do not recall who said it but there is a famous quote, “an unarmed population is a complaint population”.  After the 2nd Amendment is destroyed then we will lose the 1st. Amendment. Remember the attempts to eliminate the 1st Amendment on certain college campuses recently? After the 1st and 2nd Amendments are eliminated then the rest really do not matter!

Regarding specific “Deliberate Lies, Disgusting Dishonesty, and Insulting Disrespect”, there are so many undeniable examples of these it would take a long book to discuss them. I will include just enough specific examples here to make my case, in no particular order.

A Democrat state representative in Florida gave a live televised press conference before the bodies were recovered, or even identified to rant about guns!

The Democrats in Congress loudly interrupted a moment of silence for the Orlando victims to grandstand about gun control and walked out of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate. This was obviously planned and coordinated for maximum media coverage.

The Democrats illegally filibustered in the Senate to demand gun control legislation be considered. Again it was obviously organized and coordinated for maximum publicity.

As noted above we already have all the guns laws on the books that we need. There are Federal limitations on purchasing guns from a licensed gun dealer anywhere outside the state where your legal residence is located. It is illegal to purchase a gun for someone else. ALL gun sales made by licensed gun dealers require valid, verifiable ID and an electronic background check (there is NO gun show loophole here). A licensed firearms dealer cannot sell you a gun over the phone or internet or ship a firearm directly to you if you are not a licensed dealer (there is NO internet sales loophole here). Multiple purchases of guns at the same time or in a short period of time are a red flag on the electronic background check system. Felons cannot legally purchase or possess firearms. There are variations of some of these regulations state by state and in some cases in municipalities within states but as you can see it would be easy to reduce illegal gun possession and gun violence if our government wanted  that to happen. Two perfect examples of this are all the criminals walking around with guns. “Stop and frisk” and hard jail time would solve that problem. Another is the illegal cross state gun sellers the “Left” loves to scream about. Red flags from electronic background checks for multiple purchases would solve that problem. As previously noted if the Government did these simple things it would lose the basis for its efforts to destroy the 2nd Amendment.

So you think it is OK to deny gun rights to people on the “no fly list”? That is another cheap shot at shredding the 2nd Amendment!  Apparently anybody in this administration can put anyone they want to on the “no fly list”. Ask Steve Hayes about that and how hard it is to get off the list. He is a prominent Fox News contributor and columnist who is frequently critical of the Obama Administration.

It is an undeniable fact that incidences of gun violence are consistently higher in states with the most restrictive gun laws, Chicago is an extreme example of this but Obama and his supporters constantly state (deliberately lie) that the opposite is true!

The AR 15 and similar weapons are not “weapons of war” or “automatic assault weapons”. They are a legal civilian version of the M16 which is a “weapon of war”. The M16 has a “selector switch” that allows it to be fired continuously (automatically) as long as the trigger is depressed. It is illegal to possess any “automatic” weapon in the U.S without a Federal permit which cost tens of thousands of dollars and is practically impossible to get.

When Democratic U.S. Congressman Grayson from Florida, who in my studied opinion is certifiably insane, was interviewed by a reporter last week he said that the weapon the killer used “fired 700 rounds per minute” which is impossible for any firearm!  To my knowledge the reporter did not question his insane claim. Note, the M16 when used in combat on automatic fire tended to jam if the 20 round clips they used had more than 18 rounds in them!

A retired FBI agent reported that he was investigating the mosque where the killer was radicalized but his investigation was shut down by multiple directives from the Obama Administration, including the State Department while Hillary was Secretary of State.

The killer was allowed to continue his killing spree for an extended period of time. He could have killed as many as he did, or more with a wide variety of legal weapons. How about a pump shotgun with 3 inch magnum buckshot loads and//or multiple six shot revolvers with heavy loads? He even made numerous phone calls and Facebook connections while he was inside “Pulse” methodically killing people.

The killer was investigated by the FBI on multiple occasions but was still allowed to buy weapons legally and even keep his armed security guard license. How will more gun laws fix that?  Simple answer is they will not! If the Obama administration had not been so obsessively P.C. and had enforced the laws on the books, this tragedy could have been prevented. Obama, Hillary and their supporters are responsible for this tragedy. (See my recent article about Political Correctness).

The Orlando police finally used an armored vehicle to break into “Pulse”, rescue live victims and take down the killer. In 2015 Obama issued an executive order preventing law enforcement agencies from getting surplus military equipment because he wanted to prevent the “militarization” of the police. What if the Orlando Police did not have that armored vehicle and the protective gear?  How many more, including police would have died? One of the police officers who went in to take the killer down took a high powered bullet to the head and lived because he was wearing a military style bullet resistant helmet.

Have you ever been to a European country? I have been to most of them on working trips. Do you know what was the first thing I noticed on my first trip to England ?  When I got off the plane at the airport in London I saw two man teams of heavily armed, swat team style officers with a guard dog on a leash patrolling the airport, and this was in the early 1990’s! I also saw terrorist attack warning systems in the department stores in London!  We do not have that in America because we are legally allowed to own firearms.

Do you think the 2nd Amendment cannot be destroyed to make us be like Europe? It can. It happened in Australia over one incidence because the voting majority was concentrated in the cities and was majority liberal. The first stages of this happened in Colorado for the same reason!

I am a “former” Federal Firearms Licensed (FFL) dealer. “Former”  because during “Slick Willy’s” first term he instructed his AG, Janet Reno to eliminate as many FFLs as she could any way she could. She happily complied by having the BATF execute ‘unannounced inspections” of FFL holders they suspected were not full time retail operations. These “unannounced inspections” basically became something that resembled “Gestapo” raids on private residences of people who held valid FFLs at that address. As soon as I became aware of these “unannounced inspections” I “voluntarily” requested the cancellation of my FFL and submitted all my records to the BATF, which unfortunately included a complete inventory of all my personal firearms, including all those I had before getting the FFL. Mission accomplished!

The efforts to outlaw certain firearms and make gun manufacturers and dealers liable for damages when guns they sold were used in crimes also began when “Slick Willy’s was President. These efforts were obviously intended to shut done the firearms industry. Hillary strongly, publicly supports this and “changes” to the 2nd amendment. Obama also used  the DOJ to try to shut down the firearms industry by forcing banks to stop doing business with them under “Operation Choke Point” and to destroy the 2nd Amendment through “Fast and Furious” (see my article, “The Department of InJustice”).

As I have detailed here a President who is willing to do anything, regardless of its legality, to achieve their personal agenda can usually get away with it if they have a compliant media and an opposition party that will not step up and oppose them (sound familiar?).

What is openly happening in America now is a deliberate and determined assault on the Constitution. Obama has about 215 more days to finish destroying America.

We have one chance to save what is left of our Republic. Even if you do not like the available options in November, choose America!

Fifty Years in America. How the Obama Administration has been Able to Make America be so P.C. that it is Dysfunctional

Until I began to study this subject I did not think about  “Political Correctness” being a powerful political tool for many decades until it clearly began to be used that way in America. It actually has roots in Marxism and Communism. There are references to it being used by Marxist and Hitler to brain wash people into not just believing in their Ideology but to ”rise up” and fight for it. Ideologues, young people, and the “have nots” were the usual target audiences (sound familiar?).

This is not the first time I have noted and written about how America began to be manipulated in the 60’s to become what we are today. There did need to be changes made in America during the 60’s. There was, and still is a lot of focus on racism in the South at that time. This was highlighted by Bull Conner, the Commissioner of Public Safety in Birmingham, Alabama. He ordered the use of fire hoses and police attack dogs to deny civil rights to people of color, including children. However, open discrimination of one form or another was taking place all over America at that time. This made America an easy target for the ideologues that believed they had a mission and were willing to go to any extreme to carry it out. Bill Ayers is a perfect example. He was a co-founder of the “Weather Underground” in the late 60’s. This was a radical off shoot group of the “Students for a Democratic Society (SDS)”. The new group was Communist ideology inspired and willing to, and did use violence to attempt to achieve their goals. When the FBI linked them to several bombings in the U.S. Bill went into hiding. He resurfaced later and became a tenured college professor! In recent years he has appeared on shows like Megyn Kelly’s, where he admitted to being part of that radical group and their activities and said that he “did not do enough”. He recently did a live television interview during one of the first violent riots at a Trump rally.

Unfortunately people like Bill Ayers are not solely responsible for America becoming so “P.C.” and dysfunctional. Many of the people who were elected or appointed to positions of authority in America have played a much larger role in this frightening transition. The Obama Administration, especially Eric Holder and the DOJ have aggressively put the final nails in our Republic’s proverbial coffin. As they do this they are openly as lawless as Bill Ayers and his “Weather Underground” was, and flaunt it to a mostly compliant media and a political opposition that makes little to no effort to stop them. I detailed this in my recent writing, “The Department of injustice”.

As I noted earlier, the roots of this transition sprouted in the early stages of the “non-violent” civil rights movement in the 60’s. Unfortunately the protests were not always non-violent. The Watts riot in 1965 was one of the first to be extremely violent. This was followed closely by the protests against the Vietnam War by peace activist on many of our college campuses and the hippie generation in some of our major cities. Soldiers who were coming home on leave or returning from active duty were booed and harassed if they were seen in public wearing their uniform. The “”SDS” and subsequently the “Weather Underground” came out of this unrest and civil disobedience. As a college student during the late 60’s I saw some of this first hand and more played out on the evening network news.  As I think back about that now I cannot remember a time since then when America was not experiencing some form of protest or organized civil unrest focused on a wide variety of real or imagined injustices.

The organized protest during the Obama Administration have shown an increasing tendency to use violence to try and achieve their goals or simply because they can do it with little to no fear of prosecution. To these people the 1st Amendment is only useful for trampling on the 1st Amendment rights of people they do not agree with!  A clear example of this is speakers who are invited to speak on college campuses that are shouted down by ideologues who do not agree with their views. Or speakers that are disinvited by college administrators before they speak due to student protest against them on campus.

In the 60’s and 70’s many of the organized protest did seem to have at least some semblance of reason or meaning behind them.  As I look at many of the protest today I actually find it hard to understand how the protesters, including their “leaders” and/or “spokespersons” could be so irrational and unreasonable. People like Sandra Fluke, a student at a very expensive law school leading a national Democratic supported movement demanding free birth control for everyone because, “the students at her law school could not afford to pay for them”. When many of these people are interviewed by someone that actually has real questions they cannot answer even the most simple questions. Here are two examples. An “Occupy Wall Street” spokesperson who could not begin to explain what the movement was about while the police made no effort to control the illegal protest or stop the open destruction of public and private property. A spokesperson for the “Million Student” protest group that is demanding free college for everyone who stated that the “Government had the money to pay everyone’s tuition”. When pressed regarding where the Government would get the money she replied that she had never been elected to any office so she did not know and it was not her responsibility to know.

Unfortunately in today’s political environment irrational thinking and unreasonable demands by organized groups seems to be the norm, not the exception. This has peaked during Obama’s presidency. He and his liberal supporters have been so obsessed with making America become P.C. that they have taken our country to the point where we are experiencing a collapse of authority and the destruction of 1st amendment rights. As a result of this we are seeing an increasing use of violence by special interest groups and the law enforcement community’s increasing refusal to enforce our laws. And to make matters worse, at times the people in positions of authority publicly blame someone other than the protestors (like the San Jose mayor blaming Trump for the violent protestors at his rally). And then they compound the problems by making excuses for not stopping openly illegal behavior (San Jose police chief) and in some instances actually enabling the violent behavior (Baltimore).

And now we have Orlando, June 11/12, 2016, and I saw a Democrat state representative hold a press conference before all the bodies had been recovered or identified, and blame it on GUNS, BULLET MAGAZINES and GUN SHOW LOOPHOLES! Unfortunately for her these ridiculous and untimely accusations had nothing to do with this act of terror. The shooter was a state licensed armed security guard since 2007, in spite of being investigated by the FBI as a security risk in 2013 and again in 2014! Not a mention by her of radical terrorism even though the terrorist called 911 to express his loyalty to ISIS!

Now it is Monday, June 13th and it is obvious that the “Do not let a crisis go to waste” policy of the Obama Administration is in full effect. Obama, Hillary, Bernie and every Liberal that can get close to a microphone is loudly calling for new gun bans, blaming the NRA and refusing to even say the words “Islamic Terrorist” or “Radical Islamist”. As noted above this cold blooded killer was a declared “Radical Islamist” and had a “current”, state issued, armed security guard license which requires an initial Federal back ground check which must be repeated on a periodic basis.

The Obama Administration is so P.C. obsessed with refusing to use terms like “Islamic Terrorist” or “Radical Islamist” that it was recently revealed that the White House edited video tape to remove the part where the French President used the two words “Islamic terrorist” during a joint press conference with Obama (which is a clear violation of Federal records keeping laws).

We do not need to return to the days of Bull Conner: but we desperately need to return to the “rule of law” in America, not a final rush into anarchy!

We must save what is left of our Republic in November!
