SHOULD WE TRUST THE PROGNOSTICATORS OF TODAY???


BLOG POST 1 - Prognosticators

There are many self-proclaimed prophets in the world today and some of them are incredibly intelligent in various sectors but have made some epic fails in their prognostications of coming things.  J.G. Ballard, the writer once said, “If enough people predict something it won’t happen.”  That makes me laugh because the sheer number of people predicting something will impact it only to the degree their predictions influence people to do the things required to fulfill their prophecies.  Otherwise, the number of prognosticators agreeing will have little to no effect on the outcome and often awards the prize of “egg on the face” for those jumping on the bandwagon of a popular prediction.

My reason for addressing this is my interest over the past several decades at predictions on various fronts and the fulfillment or lack thereof.  I have discovered some that are incredibly humorous and speak more to the mindset of a particular era than the prognostication powers of the person making the prediction.  Since, only God knows for sure what the future holds, I always take a political, economic, or social prediction with a grain of salt.  In spiritual matters, I immediately take the prediction to the Bible and filter it through the Word of God as my initial reaction.  If it bears up under the scrutiny of the Bible, then I make it a matter of prayer.

Recently, Dr. Walter Williams wrote an article on this subject and identified some epic fails among the more recent ‘experts’ prior to the election of President Donald Trump.  Those prognosticators were predicting THE END OF THE WORLD on many fronts were Trump to win the election.  Some of them, such as former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers predicted that if (and that was a big IF to him) Donald Trump was elected, there would be a protracted recession within 18 months.  OOPS!  You are no longer regarded as a prophet Mr. Summers.  Just prior to the election, in an attempt to frighten the voters, The Washington Post ran an editorial with the inch-high headline “A President Trump Could Destroy the World Economy.”  Well, Washington Post HERE’S YOUR SIGN.  You are kicked out of the Prognosticators Club.  Steve Rattner, a Democratic financier and former head of the National Economic Council sounded his alarm and prognostication, “If the unlikely event happens and Trump wins, you will see a market crash of historic proportions.”  Mr. Rattner, you now join Mr. Summers and the Washington Post as False Prophets.  They were not alone.  I add one more for good measure by the illustrious Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman wrote after it was apparent that Trump was going to win, “the world is very probably looking at a global recession, with no end in sight.”  Mr. Krugman has been wrong so many times I’m not sure why anyone listens to this little boy crying wolf, but they do.  Mostly, they listen to those prognosticators because they are saying what they want to hear and hoping they are right.  I find it absolutely amazing that anyone would DESIRE the American Economy to collapse to bring about defeat for Donald Trump.  Why would any American not want a growing economy that would benefit ALL AMERICANS?  The simple answer is Political Ideology and Agenda rather than genuine interest in America and Americans.

Let’s take a trip back in time and consider some amazing predictions that were abject failures and today we realize their absurdity.  I hope this is both enlightening, challenging, and in some small way amusing.

  • In the 1400s the committee advising King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain regarding Christopher Columbus’ proposed adventure in 1486 said, “So many centuries after the Creation, it is unlikely that anyone could find hitherto unknown lands of any value.” 
  • In the 1500s came Nostradamus who created 6,338 vague and usually updated prophecies you’ll eventually get something correct.  I compare that to predicting that a person is going to die but not putting a date on it.  The Mayans at least gave us a date for the end of the world.  Yep, it was 2012 and I do believe we are still here.
  • In the 1600s the Roman Catholic Church in 1616 offered, “The view that the sun stands motionless at the center of the universe is foolish, philosophically false, utterly heretical…the view that the earth is not the center of the universe and even has a daily rotation is philosophically false, and at least an erroneous belief.”  OOPS but consider the mindset of that day.
  • In the 1700s Thomas Malthus argued in 1798 that population growth would outpace agricultural production.  He said, “Assuming then my postulata as granted, I say, that the power of population is indefinitely greater than the power in the earth to produce subsistence for man.  Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio.”  Now, you know that Population Control and Agenda 21 of the United Nations is not a new idea.
  • In the 1800s we find Dr. Alfred Velpeau a surgeon in 1839 advancing his theory, “The abolishment of pain in surgery is chimera.  It is absurd to go on seeking it…knife and pain are two words in surgery that must forever be associated in the consciousness of the patient.”  THANK GOD HE WAS WRONG!  How about Lord Kelvin, President of the Royal Society, 1883 – “X-rays will prove to be a hoax.”  You are now President of the Here’s Your Sign Society, sir.  Lord Kelvin also argued, “Heavier-than-air flying machines are impossible.”  There were predictions that drilling for oil would prove to be insanity and that locomotives could never replace the stagecoach or that the telephone would prove to be an interesting fantasy with no sustaining life.
  • In the 1900s H.G. Wells in 1901 said, “I must confess that my imagination refuses to see any sort of submarine doing anything but suffocating its crew and floundering at sea.”   Then President of the Michigan Savings Bank advised Henry Ford’s attorney, Horace Rackham, not to invest in the Ford Motor Company, 1903 saying, “The horse is here to stay but the automobile is only a novelty-a fad.”  In 1923, Nobel Prize Physicist Robert Millikan predicted, “There is no likelihood man can ever tap the power of the atom.”  In 1936, the New York Times declared, “A rocket will never be able to leave the Earth’s atmosphere.”  There are some today who still believe that!  You might recall Life Magazine declaring in 1970, “By 1985, air pollution will have reduced the amount of sunlight reaching earth by one half.”

Let me offer a couple more humorous things from the past.  In 1919, Hall of Fame baseball player, Tris Speaker predicted regarding Babe Ruth, “Taking the best left-handed pitcher in baseball and converting him into a right fielder is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever heard.” 

How about William Kristol who told Fox News on December 17, 2006, “If [Hillary Clinton] gets in a race against John Edwards and Barack Obama, she is going to be the nominee.  Gore is the only threat to her.  Barack Obama is not going to beat Hillary Clinton in a single Democratic primary.  I’ll predict that right now.”  What a genius!

Let me tie this in a little bow and you can do what you will with it.  I gave these simply to point out that all the Polls said Trump could not win, but he did.  The Polls are telling us that the voters prefer the Democrats to the Republicans and the Democrats will regain control of Congress in 2018 and the White House in 2020.  I don’t trust them and with all the failures in Polls and Prognostications, you should not either.  They are often designed to discourage participation by Conservatives and Republicans.  If they can get you to throw in the towel and consider it a lost cause they can win but if you and I go to the voting booths in November and exercise our Constitutional Right to Vote we can make these modern Prognosticators False Prophets.  WHAT SAY YOU?  Will, we unite and defeat those who want to transform American into something other than the Free Constitutional Republic with Free Enterprise?  I SAY YES!

God bless you and God bless America!

DO NOT FORSAKE ME, Oh My Darling…


BLOG POST 1 - Forsake

Republicans in Congress, you’d better be careful that you don’t trifle with our loyalty in your betrayals or you just might find that we file for political divorce.  Hank Williams’ song, “Your Cheating Heart” comes to mind when I review some of the actions of the Republican Establishment and many of the rank-in-file blindly following sheepishly in willful obedience.  Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan have been anything but genuine in their commitment to the Promises made on the Campaign Trail.  Sometimes, it seems they have more in common with the Leftists on the other side of the aisle than their constituents.  I’ll get to some specifics momentarily but let me blow off a little steam first.

I am stunned and angered by the MASSIVE spending bill that the Senate passed in the tune of $675 BILLION.  Supposedly it is to fund the country’s defense, but it is also to fund the domestic entitlement programs that now exist.  Some of what they list as “entitlements” elicits a sigh of disgust from me because some need to go the way of the dinosaur and Dodo Bird and others are those things that hard working, tax paying Americans funded in order to have a smidgen of a sense of security in retirement.

I consider their actions a slap in the face of President Trump and all of us who voted for him and them in the last election.  If the President wants to fund our national defense, then he has to sign off on the enormity of their ENTITLEMENT PROGRAMS.  Congress was given the ‘power of the purse’ intentionally by the Framers and Founders as a means of check and balance not as carte blanche to run up an unpayable tab at the expense of the citizens.  The Democrats are ecstatic because the Establishment Republicans are acting like Democrats, so why not celebrate?  The Senate bill provides basic funding for the Pentagon but dramatically increased spending for ENTITLEMENTS.  The Democrats got everything they wanted and that is deeply troubling.  Republicans, I have been arguing that you are different from the Democrats, so start acting like it.

This measure guts, the President’s Immigration agenda and opens a wide door for them to block the border wall, reduce or restrict the Border Patrol and ICE in significant ways.  Senator Patrick Leahy (D) released a statement that the Democrats were successful in blocking ALL of President Trumps domestic budget plans.  How is that a victory for those of us who want reduced spending, limited government, a strong national defense, and a secure border?  IT IS NOT!  The Senate refused to approve the President’s request for 3,000 additional beds at the ICE detention facilities. What that means is that ICE and the Border Patrol will have nowhere to put their detainees and force them to practice Obama’s ‘catch and release’ program.  THAT IS NOT WHAT WE VOTED FOR!  In the House, Paul Ryan will have the option of voting on the bill Conservatives have produced or team up with the Liberal Democrats and vote on the surrender bill.  Unfortunately, he has elected to follow the latter option every time he has been afforded the choice.  I expect nothing different from him on this.

With the recurring crimes of violence committed against citizens by ILLEGALS, one would think that the Republicans and Democrats would want to SECURE THE BORDER, but they don’t.  The Democrats want an open border, at least in part, to build a broader Democrat voting base, and the Republicans seem to cower in the shadows afraid of being called a derogatory name.  The Leftist are uniform in attempting to declare that the Mollie Tibbets murder is not an immigration issue, but it is.  I am unafraid to say that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan through their inaction or allow the Leftist to win are complicit in killing Americans.  I know that is a serious charge and one I probably should not make but it is my view.  The Democrats are consistent in their inconsistency declaring that Walls will not stop illegals but on the other hand insist that Gun Bans will stop violent crimes and mass shootings.  How about some consistency, Leftist?  Sorry, I briefly forgot that your logic is usually illogical, and you are not about solutions but agendas and power.

I am hopeful that enough voters will contact their Senators and Congressmen demanding that THEY DO SOMETHING about the borders that the GOP Establishment blockade will crumble like the Berlin Wall.  Ryan and McConnell have demonstrated their willingness to take actions to impede the progress of the Trump agenda or the agenda promised to the voters by both Donald Trump and the GOP.  If you are not angry, you should be.  If you are not vocal, you should be.  If you are not actively engaged in communicating with your elected officials your desire, you should be.  We no longer have the luxury of watching from the sidelines this fight is too fierce and too important to let someone else fight for us.  WE MUST GET THEIR ATTENTION! 

Republicans in Washington, I plead with you “Do Not Forsake Us” or you just might find that your willingness to be Democrat Lite will result in your becoming the Minority Party once again.  That period is still producing a harvest that none of us want to reap but as the Bible says, “You reap what you sow” and we have “sowed to the wind and are facing the whirlwind.”  We have the opportunity in November of keeping control of Congress and then press our elected officials to make a change in leadership.  In the House, there will be a new speaker and we can have one that is both Constitutional and Conservative.  We may not get past McConnell in the Senate but if enough people pressure the Senators, we just might have him get on board out of fear for his position.  It may be a pipe dream, but it is a hope that I hold in my heart, am working to see happen, and praying diligently to become a reality.  November is critical and even with the betrayal by the Republican Establishment we dare not let the Democrats regain control or we will pay a price none of us can afford.

God bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!

AMERICA – We Cannot Afford Politicians…


BLOG POST 2 - Politicans

Our Freedom and Liberties are in dire straits largely because of Politicians and their Petty Politics.  I realize that with our wonderful system of government we will never be devoid of Politicians and as long as we have Politicians we will have Petty Politics, so what do we do?  There is a simple solution, but it is so simple, it is impossibly complex and would require a unification of ALL AMERICANS, therefore, it will never happen.  With that said, I could stop here and say – THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO, but THERE IS!  I know that I’ve sounded contradictory but if you will stay with me I’ll try to make sense out of the senselessness and explain what I mean, “We Cannot Afford Politicians.”

Because of the Career Elitist Politicians in Washington, D.C. in both parties we have a COST PROBLEM that is so astronomical it has created a debt we will never pay and a doom that is unavoidable.  How’s that for ‘gloom and doom?”  But, I truly do not see ‘gloom and doom’ but a ‘ray of hope’ for America IF and I do mean IF we will WAKE UP.   I want to address some issues that are so staggering the reasonable response is FEAR.  Our Founding Fathers and the Framers gave us ample warning against allowing Politicians to make Politics a Career, but we failed to heed their warnings.  They warned us about people with no scruples and of lacking moral character, but we failed to heed their warnings.  They warned us about allowing Politicians to load us with insurmountable debt, but we failed to heed their warnings. President Eisenhower warned us, “every step we take towards making the State our Caretaker, by that much we move toward making the State our Master.”  Benjamin Franklin warned, “man will ultimately be governed by God or by tyrants.”  Thomas Jefferson lamented, “History, in general, only informs us of what bad government is.”  The warnings were ample, but we have failed to heed their warnings.

How did we fail?  We have allowed politicians to make a career out of politics and repeatedly return to Washington, DC and establish a network of cronyism that makes them rich and powerful and strips us of many of our liberties and freedoms.  We have allowed them to confiscate our money for purposes the Constitution made no provision.  We have allowed politicians to bribe the public with entitlements in order to buy votes.  I do not care if the politician is a Democrat or a Republican if they violate the Constitution they are no longer deserving of serving in Congress.  We have watched the Legislators sleep while Rome burned in the sense that various bureaucracies and governmental agencies to violate our rights and become partisan to the point of damaging our entire System of Government and our National Security and National Sovereignty.  THAT MUST END!

Recently, I saw documents from the Department of Health and Human Services that revealed that “Unaccompanied Alien Children” were processed into this country during the Obama administration.  Those ‘children’ included ‘violent criminals, drug smugglers, and human traffickers.’  Children?  Maybe chronologically but not emotionally or morally.  There were those who admitted to murder and being members of the MS-13 Gang.  Some of the children were raped and/or molested en route to the United States.  There were numerous reports of those children being “forced to kill” for Cartels and Human Traffickers.  Politicians have created an environment in which America Citizens are in danger physically from these “children.”  Because of the policies of the Obama administration and the ineptitude and inaction of Congress we do not know where most of those ‘children’ are today or what crimes are being committed.  THIS MUST END!

The fiscal cost of ILLEGAL Immigration is far beyond what anyone seems to realize or want to admit.  It is reported that between 51 and 76% of low-skilled immigrants are collecting some sort of welfare.  America, we cannot afford Politicians playing Politics with our economy or our national security.  The dangers posed both economically and physically are far too great to allow this to continue.  The Democrats have removed the ‘work requirements’ and ‘asset tests’ creating a climate where a person can receive welfare or some other form of ‘entitlement’ without having to make even a minuscule attempt to get out of their poverty.  NO, they can sit on their duffs and draw a check from those of who work and pay taxes.  THIS MUST END!

Recently, the followers of Toxic Liberalism on the Left removed all pretense of their intent to end Free Speech or Free Speech for anyone not agreeing with them.  They want to eliminate I.C.E., erase our borders, institute socialism, strip us of our right to ‘keep and bear arms’, and now their aim is squarely on our 1st Amendment Rights.  The New York Times contended that “Conservatives have weaponized the First Amendment.”  We have witnessed the perceived need for “Safe Spaces” for the Snowflakes of our Society, especially on College Campuses.  The argument is those fragile souls will be so traumatized by any views not agreeing with theirs.  Today, virtually everything is deemed ‘hate speech’ if it is not liberal and in harmony with the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressive agenda.  Everything is labeled as some Phobic Mindset, Bigotry, Racist, Misogynists, or some other hateful characterization.  We are barred from mediums such as Facebook, YouTube, Google, Twitter or put in the P.C. Jail for a time.  THIS MUST END!

Religious Freedom is becoming endangered worldwide and America has been somewhat free of Religious Persecution for most of her history, that is changing.  The Democrats or those adhering to the Toxic Liberal view have virtually declared war on Religious Freedom especially if that is Christianity or even Judaism.  The number of nations worldwide that have placed significant limitations on religious freedom has risen to 83 which amounts to about 42% of countries.  The precursors of Religious Persecution are being seen in the rulings of States and Courts that American citizens who operate private businesses must accommodate views that violate their core religious convictions.  That is, if those views are biblical, if not then there is amazing exceptions made and those following traditional biblical views are ordered to comply or be put out of business, jailed, or fined excessively.  THAT MUST END!

The trampling of our Constitution by Politicians is an ever-present threat to our American System of Government and the longer we elect and re-elect politicians who refuse to fulfill their oath of office to ‘protect and defend’ the Constitution we will have this problem.  No, the problem will continue to expand and enlarge.  If we continue on the path we have trod for the past 40-50 years we are signing the Death Warrant and writing the Obituary of the Republic.  THAT MUST END!

You may agree with little I have said, but I have only scratched the surface of THE WHY we cannot afford Politicians or Politicians who are intent on playing Politics with our Liberties and Freedoms.  What can we do?  WE CAN VOTE!  In this election, it is imperative that we defeat the Democrats and then in every successive election we must seek to replace the politicians who are not true Constitutionalist with those who are both Citizen Representatives and true Constitutionalist.  IT IS UP TO US and we cannot depend on the Politicians to Police themselves, that is our job.  We are the owners of our government and we need to begin to act like it.  POLITICS is not a spectator sport it requires the hands-on involvement of every citizen.  ARE YOU WILLING? 

God bless you and God bless America!

HOW LOW CAN YOU GO???


BLOG POST 1- How Low Can You Go

If we are talking about the politics and the diatribe of toxic liberalism, I’m not sure there is a bottom to the depth to which they will descend.  I cannot help but be amazed at the openness of many Leftist Politicians today, those in the Media, Hollywood, and Activist Groups called “The Resistance”.  We have known for a long time the disdain the Democrats have for our military.  By Democrats, I mean the politicians and not necessarily every person who identifies as a Democrat.  Hillary Clinton had numerous incidents where she either uttered or demonstrated contempt for our military personnel.  I’m sure that was partly because those men and women took their oath seriously and she considered them a threat to expose her where they to get too close.  But that is another story for another time.

During the testimony of disgraced and corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok before Congress, the disgraceful, disrespectful, and idiotic statement by various members of Congress came to the forefront.  However, none stooped so low and exhibited such disrespect for our men and women in arms who have been wounded in defense of this nation, as that of Congressman Steve Cohen (D-TN).  He said, “If I could I would give you a Purple Heart.”  That is diminishing that medal of recognition and is a slap in the face of every Veteran and those now serving.  It is more than shameful it is reprehensible, but demonstrates both the lack of appreciation for our military and the ever-growing view of the Leftists toward our military.  He later tried to “walk back” his comments but, as Pontius Pilate said to the Jewish Leaders regarding the inscription over Jesus’ Cross, “What I have Written I have Written.”  Congressman, “What You Said You Said.”  You can’t run from it and you can’t hide.  Those of us who have served find your attitude about as low as you can go.

The wonder boy, David Hogg, who has become nothing more than an attention whore has demonstrated his ignorance and the depth to which the Left will plunge once again.  He can’t get his facts straight, knows little of what he claims to be an expert on, and demonstrates why it is a bad idea to give most teenagers the right to vote.  He claimed, “The Pentagon promised citizenship to immigrants who served.  Now it might help to deport them.”  The facts are that only 40 of them were discharged out of the 100,000 serving. They were discharged because they could not pass checks for a security clearance, same as American citizens who fail that qualification.  How could a “gun control” advocate be for people handling firearms in the military that cannot pass a background check?  How Low Can You Go?  Well, the Leftist following their toxic liberalism will muddy the waters, change their standards, twist and pervert everything to prove their point, whatever that point might be.

I know it is old news now but the IG Report on the FBI is basically more spin and propaganda for the Leftists.  Someone said, it is Comey 2.0 and that is not far from the truth.  In the IG Report on the Clinton email investigation identifies the depth to which our Justice System has plunged and the real question is CAN WE GET IT BACK?  It is quite possible that the Deep State and Swamp have so much control over that arm of our government and has so many bureaucratic activists entrenched we will not.  I found numerous things disheartening.  They would have been laughable were they not so serious.  The IG Report tried to spin James Comey as being a “straight shooter”.  SERIOUSLY?   The same was offered regarding Mueller, Rod Rosenstein, and others.  It reveals the willingness of the Deep State’s bias is to Lie, Lie, and Lie.

Let’s consider the ‘straight shooter’ James Comey and the FBI with regard to Hillary Clinton’s intent.  Intent has nothing to do with the law and Comey, McCabe, Strzok, and even the IG justified her violations of protocol and law by using that defense but the Navy Seaman who demonstrated “no intent” to mishandle classified data was awarded a prison sentence.  How’s that for ‘straight shooting’?  There are many laws where the person breaking that law goes to jail but demonstrated no intent.  How about a person killing someone accidentally because they were incredibly careless?  That person goes to jail even though they never INTENDED to kill the other person.  Before you argue that I’m comparing apples to pinto beans let me remind you that the Laws for the Protection of Classified Data are there to PROTECT LIVES.  Breaking that trust and violating that law can and often does lead to the loss of American lives.  However, with regard to the ‘straight shooter’ James Comey and the whitewash of the IG Report, Hillary could be excused because of lack of intent.  We honestly do not know how many America lives have been or will be lost because of her CARELESSNESS if not WILLFUL VIOLATIONS.

Michael Flynn was indicted because he supposedly lied to the FBI, but there were no indictments against Hillary, whom Comey admitted lied or her associates that lied.  STRAIGHT SHOOTER and NO BIAS?  Look out for the flying pigs and don’t step in the Unicorn feces.  Hillary and her cohorts were not indicted because Strzok and the FBI were working on their Insurance Policy to invalidate the 2016 Election should Trump win, which he did.  Indicting Hillary or her subordinates would severely hamper that objective or destroy it completely.  But, the Leftists are willing to go to the depth of the ocean of corruption to achieve their objective.  How so many still cannot see this is somewhat bewildering.

I read an analogy that is apropos that I will share.  “Imagine a murder case where the prosecution has the murder weapon with only the defendant’s bloody fingerprints on it, has witnesses that placed the defendant at the crime scene, and testimony from multiple witnesses saying that the defendant had strong reason to kill the victim, but the prosecutor says since the defendant won’t confess to the murder they will not prosecute.  That’s what the IG report is.  Apparently unless one of the FBI officials admitted that political bias drove actions which were in favor of Hillary, the IG believes that it can’t say that the systematic bias shown in favor of Hillary and against Trump had any impact.”  (Tom Trinko)

We have a relatively simple choice in November. We can block the path of the Liberal Leftists Democrats or we can allow them to succeed in their attempt to reclaim control in Congress.  What would that mean?  Some argue, nothing, but I challenge you to consider the damage done during the 8 years of Barack Obama.  I challenge you to consider what is at stake with regard to our 1st & 2nd Amendment Rights.  I urge you to think about the Economy, Tax Cuts, Obamacare, the Borders, Illegal Immigration, and our standing in the world which directly impacts our National Security and Sovereignty.  The Democrats, if they reclaim control, will plunge us deeper into the abyss of destruction that was put in high-gear by Barack Hussein Obama, George Soros, and the followers of the Liberal, Leftist, Socialist, Globalist seeking to completely remake America into something of their liking rather than preserving her as the Constitutional Republic of our Framers and Founders.

I will continue to fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom.  God bless you and God bless America!

QUESTIONS THAT CONTINUE TO PERPLEX ME…


BLOG POST 3 - Perlexed

I am not easily disturbed and the LORD helps me maintain a reasonably even keel in most things most of the time.  I know some will question that based on what I write and the challenges I present for those who are Liberal Democrats, RINOs and the NEVER TRUMP CROWD.  Yes, there are things that get my motor running and cause me to yell, ‘STOP THE INSANITY,’ but I do not lose my Hope, Confidence, and Faith because of those things.  I am concerned for America, not so much for me but for my children and grandchildren and the successive generations who will follow.  What will their America look like?  What will be the state of Political Correctness for them?  How many of our Freedoms and Liberties will have been infringed in the America they find my generation has left them with? 

Those of us who choose to support the President rather than Hillary Clinton, the RINOs, and the Liberal Democrats are accused of being “stupid, blind, misogynists, phobic, xenophobes, bigots, racist, and more.”  Those are not pleasant characterizations, but by and large, I follow the adage “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words…”  What about words?  I have a friend who says, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words may get your butt kicked.” Words may make me angry and cause me to become more involved in the pursuit of truth and the reclaiming of our Constitutional Republic, but I try to keep from allowing them to hinder my labors or my willingness to have open discussions.  The one that is, in my view, the absolute worst is we are called a CULT. 

If we take the Merriam-Webster definition of a cult it might help us to grasp what is being said and open the door for me to ask the questions that continue to perplex me.  Shall we embark on that journey?  CULT per Merriam-Webster:  1. a religion regarded as unorthodox or spurious; also, its body of adherents.  There are the additional remarks in the definition that identify a person in a cult as one that has great devotion to a person, idea, object, movement, or work.  Then we also find the idea of “misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.”  If that is what is meant by CULT, then some of it I can accept and some of it I cannot.

The idea, as presented by the NEVER TRUMPERS is that ALL Trump Supporters are ‘brain-dead, dolts,’ who blindly follow the man.  They believe that ANYONE who would vote for Trump or support any of his agenda, nominees, etc. are delusional and unworthy of being given the opportunity to speak or the benefit of the doubt.  They have tried and convicted President Donald J. Trump in their court of personal opinion and, to them, that is FINAL.  He, to them, is the scum of the earth, unworthy to breathe the breath that all human beings breath, and even if he did exactly what they had been in favor of, IT IS WRONG because HE IS WRONG.  I don’t believe that I am off base in that analysis.

That brings me to some questions that I’d like to ask every person who is a NEVER TRUMPER and refuses to consider anything that the President does as being good or worthy of praise.  If you are a NEVER TRUMPER and not a Democrat then:

  • Do you believe that Hillary Clinton would be better for America?
  • Do you believe that the 8 years of Barack Obama were good for America?
  • Do you believe that it would be good for America to allow the Democrats to regain control of Congress?
  • Is there anything that President Donald Trump could do that you would approve, other than the obvious resigning. 

I know those questions and these follow up ones will ignite the fuse on the inconsolable anger of those who are adamantly NEVER TRUMP in their political and ideological positions.  But, I must ask, is it pride that prevents you from acknowledging the achievements of the President since being inaugurated?  Do you consider Lower Taxes a bad thing?  Do You consider trying to find Originalist Jurist for the Supreme Court a bad thing?  Do you believe that securing our border is a bad thing?  Do you support a Strong Military?  Do You want to protect the 2nd Amendment and all our Inalienable Rights?  Those do not provide an exhaustive list but provide a platform from which to launch our consideration of CULTISM.

I feel compelled to ask if you believe that Hillary would be bad for America, Barack Obama’s administration did damage to our Republic, and should the Leftist to reclaim control in Washington it would be bad for any hope of the preservation of America as the Constitutional Republic, then who are the real Cultists?  You claim that you do not HATE but you incessantly spew forth vitriol and venom toward the President and anyone who wants what was promised on the Campaign Trail.  How is that anything but HATE?  You claim to be indifferent to him, yet virtually every word out of your mouth and every word you write is an attack on him and us, what can I consider that but HATE?

Those who are NEVER TRUMP, the Liberal Democrats, and the RINOs, in my view are misguided and in their view, I am.  Where does that put us?  Unless we are willing to acknowledge the possibility of our own misconceptions and misinterpretations of events, people, and situations, it places us on opposing sides of an abyss that is impossible to bridge.  Unless you believe that Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Barack Obama and the Liberal Leftists are better for America I ask that you consider what is at stake.  Donald Trump has and will do things that trouble me, but so did Ronald Reagan and every other president I have witnessed.  He is a flawed human being, just as we are.  If you truly believe, as the theory that is now being floated that he is totally owned by Putin, broke, and a Russian spy, then, by all means, stand your ground in opposition. I, on the other hand, believe that even through missteps, shooting from the lip when silence would have been more prudent, and allowing personal ego to prevail from time to time, Donald J. Trump wants to see America become what she has been, should be.  I believe that if we can somehow drain the Swamp, dismantle the Deep State, and restore the ownership and oversight of government to WE THE PEOPLE reducing its size and scope we can achieve the desired objective.  My faith demands that I do all I can to help America return to her moral moorings espoused in our founding.  My faith demands that I fight for the Unborn, defend the defenseless, and the recognition of our Inalienable Rights and Freedoms.  I see this as a binary choice because if I vote for a third-party candidate, at this juncture, that will enhance the possibilities of the Democrats to regain control and win.  You may disagree, and I defend your right to do so.

Once we defeat the Liberal Leftist Globalist Socialist Progressive Democrats in November THEN it is imperative that we begin, with earnest the process of ousting as many RINOs as possible in 2020 and beyond.  This is a marathon, not a sprint and although Donald Trump was not my first choice, he provides a hope of seeing the Promises which I voted for becoming reality.  Call me a Trump Cultist if you please but I hope you understand that I am Pro-America, an Originalist regarding the Constitution, Pro-Life, and Pro-God.  I have a life, not a political life, a religious life, a business life, a home life, and a social life.  I HAVE A LIFE, therefore, I invest myself as I do in the political because as America goes, so goes the world.

God bless you and God bless America!

Please forgive me for using the word ‘stupid’ and know that I am not trying to insinuate that you are.  However, I am 100% convinced that the Liberal Leftists have counted on our (the masses) being stupid and so naïve that we will willingly remain sheep and drink the Kool-Aid as has been the case in the past.  What happens if they are wrong and MILLIONS wake up and refuse to buy their ideological narrative and spin?  WHAT HAPPENS?  They lose and lose big time!  They go the way of the dinosaur and into extinction.  I see signs that say that is happening and signs that suggest it might be too little too late to stem the tide of Toxic Liberalism that is infecting our society, politics, and national standing.  I hope the former is the case not the latter.

Steve Sailer wrote an article in “Taki’s Magazine” some time back entitled, “A Half Century of Amnesia.”  It is worth the time to read if you can find it.  Too often, we miss the obvious and dismiss it without giving it deeper thought and consideration.  We have allowed political correctness to steer us away for honest discussion of facts fearing the labels we will be branded with should we open that can of worms.  He suggested that there has been brewing a cultural atmosphere which not only gave us Donald Trump as president and a condition that the MSM, Academia, and the Left are missing or ignoring.  He is right in his contention that the Left has declared war on straight American whites and has been doing so for decades.  That kind of attitude is never devoid of consequences.

The fact that the New York Times would hire an openly racist and anti-white staff writer, Sarah Jeong, is evidence of the validity of that contention.  Their recent article, “The Unbearable Whiteness of Baseball” declares their attitude and intent.  They seem to be oblivious to the facts that Major League Baseball Rosters contain a proportion of white players which conforms to the population as a whole.  Forget the facts, let’s make it racism to be white.  Sailer stated his position that it is ‘idiocy’ to believe as the Leftist that mass immigration will make whites a minority and strip from them their ‘white privilege’.  His contention is that this rhetoric and ideology will push more and more of White America toward Conservatism and supporting the Republican Party.  In the view of today’s Leftist Liberal Democrat, nationally, if you are White you are a racist and need to be punished for your whiteness.  I argue that SKIN COLOR should have nothing to do with anything in life or politics and merit should be the basis of the benefits we receive.  Hard work and ethical behavior are values that we once proudly identified as those to be lauded but today’s Entitlement World decries them as undesirable qualities and part of White Privilege.

The Left believes that those of us who reject their agenda and ideology are simply “ignorant bitter clingers” who need to be enlightened and if not enlightened forced to comply.  In the 2000 Electoral totals, it was revealed that the Republicans only needed to push their share of White Vote from 54 to 57 percent to retake a solid majority of American voters.  Donald Trump won 58% of that vote and that may well be a low-mark in future vote totals if the Leftist continue their push for their Toxic Anti-American Socialist Brand of Liberalism.  They are pushing black, Hispanics, Asians, and Whites away from the Democrat ledger and into the arms of Conservative Republican Camps and I hope that trend continues.  I hope that for two reasons.  One, it will mean the defeat of the Leftist Democrats and thereby preserve the Republic.  Two, it will open the door for us to purge from the ranks the RINO and Liberal Anti-Constitution, Big Government Swamp Denizens in the Republican Party.  That would be a Glorious Day, in my mind!

Donald Trump has a higher approval rating among Black Americans than any of his Republican predecessors which screams to me, this is not about Race but Policy.  The DNC is touting the avowed Socialist from New York, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, as the face of the New Democrat Party and I do not believe that is playing well in main-stream America.  She has declared that the white upper-middle class soccer moms are “not American anymore” and is offending multitudes with her inane diatribe and drivel.

The Republicans have been told ad nauseam if you want someone’s vote you must make them understand you don’t hate them.  I don’t disagree with that, but should that not apply to the Democrats as well with regard to White People?  Hey, if you continue in your diatribe and rhetoric that I am evil, and you advance agendas and policies that do harm to me, WHY WOULD I VOTE FOR YOU?  Racism is disgusting no matter from whom it comes.  The theory I have heard repeated frequently is that black people cannot be racist!  WHAT?  Anybody can be racist, ANYBODY!  There is no corner on the racist market for a particular skin color, ethnicity, or political persuasion.  IT IS OPEN TO ALL who would dive into that cesspool and swim in the feces.

The growth of the #WalkAway movement is encouraging because it reveals that many in the Black Community are no longer drinking the Liberal Leftists Enslavement Kool-Aid presented by the Democrats.  When anyone regardless of ethnicity THINKS for themselves they reject rhetoric, examine facts, consider their own situation, and evaluate the best course to take.  I’ve had numerous Black, Asian, and Hispanic Americans tell me that they were die-hard Democrats UNTIL recently and the successes of Donald Trump’s administration has caused them to THINK.  Once that happened the Leftist were exposed, and they rejected the Liberal Leftist Agenda of the Democrats.  I pray this is more than a passing fad and becomes a new wave of political action as has been the Tea Party of the past.  I believe that there are millions of Americans who detest being defined by the color of their skin.  If you push people hard enough and discover they are being pushed to embrace identity politics or incur the label of racist, homophobe, bigot, misogynist or some other hateful moniker.  If people feel threatened with economic status and position unless they comply with a particular ideology they will often resent that and respond negatively.  That, I believe, is happening with millions today regarding the National Democratic Party and their Wars against anything they oppose.  If this becomes reality, the Democrats have only themselves to blame.   MAKE IT SO PATRIOTS… Let’s stand together and Protect and Defend America and our Republic in November 2018.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE ANIMALS OF WASHINGTON – Donkeys, Elephants, RINOs… What Does It Mean for America?


BLOG POST 1 - Animals

Virtually nothing in politics makes logical sense these days.  When you consider the testimony of corrupt FBI Agent Peter Strzok and the reaction of the Democrats acting as if he were the victim of the evil Republicans, you have to scratch your head.  When this individual could brazenly declare that he ‘detested or detests’ Trump but was not biased, you have to wonder when there will be a herd of Unicorns and Flying Pigs openly visible for the world to see.  I keep expecting to see the national news showing pictures of Alice on the Yellow Brick Road with the Tin Man and Scarecrow.  I cannot believe that the MSM, the Democrats, and the general public are not openly critical of this corrupt law enforcement agent who is deserving of termination if not an indictment.  How can anything he says be viewed as credible?  But, alas, there are millions who buy the rhetoric of the Leftist or they are so devotedly Anti-Trump they are willing to turn a blind eye to the corruption and defend the indefensible.  Even now that he has been fired, he is still proclaimed as the victim!

There are those on the Left and those in the Never Trump or RINO camps that refuse to acknowledge that the Economy is doing much better since Trump’s inauguration.  In June the report showed that we added 213,000 jobs as American businesses extended their hiring and the Unemployment Rate was 4.0% and even better now!  The American Economy has added an average of 200,000 jobs each month in 2018. This far exceeded the expectations of economists who predicted about 100,000. The average hourly wage rate rose 2.7% with private sector payrolls rising by 202,000 in June and manufacturing and construction added 49,000 jobs, and professional and business services increased by 50,000 new jobs.  Things have turned around to the point that businesses are lamenting that they cannot find qualified workers to fill the vacancies.  The job openings now outnumber unemployed laborers and that has never happened since the government began keeping records.  BUT, the theme of the Donkey Herd, the MSM, the RINOs, and the NEVER TRUMPERS is “Trump Bad” or “Trump Must Go.”  Making sense out of the senseless and defending the indefensible, for them is becoming increasingly more difficult if not impossible.

Then, there is the suggestion if not fact that Hillary Clinton is so delusional that she is going to run again for the Democratic Party’s Nomination for President.  This is the same Hillary that called millions of us “Deplorable” and has defended “animals” such as the MS-13 Gang Members and demands that we abolish or revamp our Border Security to accommodate the Illegals and is a staunch defender of the ‘children’ of the Illegals.  On the other hand, she is devotedly in favor of Planned Parenthood and the carnage of innocent babies in the womb being slaughtered.  Hillary wrote of the families of illegal aliens being separated, saying, “Horrific!!  This is a moral and humanitarian crisis. Every one of us who has ever had a child in their arms and every human being with a sense of compassion and decency should be outraged.”  Then she offered her assessment of America’s stupidity saying, “I warned about Trump’s immigration policies in the 2016 campaign.”  Get it?  We are inhumane, stupid, deplorable, bigoted, haters of all that is decent, moral and right but she and the Democrats, on the other hand, are the guardians of all that his Holy, Moral, and Decent.  Seriously?  This is the woman that said of the American deaths at Benghazi, “What difference does it now make?”  This is the woman that has no moral outrage over the 55 MILLION Innocent Babies that have been slaughtered since the inception of Roe v Wade.  Her defense of parents that put their children in danger to break our laws over American citizens and the Unborn is beyond belief, in my humble opinion.

The position of the Democrats even before President Trump nominated Brett Kavanaugh for the vacated seat of Justice Kennedy on the Supreme Court, they announced they opposed the nominee.  Some even called the nominee a racist, a fascist, is suffering from Islamophobia or is Homophobic even before they knew who the nominee was.  How much sense does that make?  The lame argument that the precedent was set that no nominee could be reviewed in an election year is laughable.  The precedent was established by none other than Joe Biden when he argued during the Bush administration that there should be no consideration for federal courts in a presidential election year.  THIS IS NOT A PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEAR!  I understand their opposition for they are clinging to a dream that they can reclaim the Senate in the mid-term elections and should that happen, Trump would find it virtually to get anyone confirmed unless it was a Liberal Leftist Activist Jurist to the liking of the Donkeys in Congress.  MAY THAT NEVER BE!

Newt Gingrich has suggested that based on the flawed and nonsensical Immigration stance of the Democrats the Republicans are in a position to not only hold their own but to gain seats in this election.  I hope, Newt is right but warn that we cannot become complacent.  The reports are that the Democrats have registered over 12 MILLION more voters than the Republicans and many of those are in the Swing States.  How many are legitimate, one can only speculate.  But, that poses a serious threat to our Republic and something that demands that each of us communicate to as many people as possible the importance of this election.  Newt believes that the more the Democrats throw their support behind unpopular immigration policies, sanctuary cities, abolishing ICE and the Border Security.  Most Americans realize the dangers involved in this lunacy and want our borders secured.  They may disagree on exactly how that is to be done, but the majority do not desire to see our borders eliminated for in so doing we would effectively destroy America and endanger countless Americans not counting those already harmed and endangered.  The Harvard-Harris Poll indicated that 64% of registered voters believe that those who cross our borders illegally should be sent back to their home countries.  Only 36% believed they should be allowed to stay.  You will not hear that from the MSM, the Democrats, the RINOs, or the NEVER TRUMPERS.  Nope, it is inhumane to do so because it is Trump.  I almost wonder if the prevailing attitude in that coalition is “America Be Damned if Trump is to be given any credit.”    Over 61% said that our border security is inadequate.  Over 70% believe that we should have stricter enforcement of Immigration Laws and 84% of registered voters said that ‘sanctuary city policies’ should end, and 69% opposed the idea of abolishing ICE.  That does not bode well for the Donkeys, the RINOs, the MSM, and the NEVER TRUMPERS for it means that most Americans agree, at least essentially, with the President.

With the influx of drugs and the invasion of terrorist or those with terrorist ties or leanings over the past few years should be enough to WAKE UP every citizen.  There should be protests in the streets demanding that we Secure the Border and Enforce our Laws.  There isn’t because, for the most part, those on the Conservative side do not engage in that kind of activity, unlike the ANTIFA, Black Lives Matter, the Soros and Obama Organizing for Action, and the New Black Panthers groups.  No, we believe in following the Law and expressing our voices in the powerful expression known as the Ballot Box.  Across the board support for the Republican Immigration Policies ranges from a low of 60% to a high of 84% and if the Elephants will realize the position they are in, WE CAN WIN and KEEP THE WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY OPEN for at least two more years!   Will you join us in this fight?

God bless you and God bless America!
