BLOG POST 1 - Elections

Well, to put it in a ‘nutshell’ EVERYTHING!  But to be more specific, I will list a few things that I am watching intently because I believe, as do many of you, that this election is a window into the future of America, or a crystal ball that reveals America has no future, depending on the outcome or outcomes of various elections.  There have been some things on both sides of the political debate that have caught my attention not the least of which is the Socialist in New York upsetting an Establishment Democrat.  Couple that with some moves I am seeing in California, and the incredibly important races in Texas both for the U.S. Senate and the Governor’s Mansion.    I will go into those issues but let me state at the outset that I see this election as a clear indicator as to what direction my home state and the nation is going to take or has taken.  The elections will define not only the direction we are going to go but the state we have already reached in our moral, social, political, and even spiritual journey.  Will it be a breath of fresh air and provide a new ray of hope or will the dark clouds be revealed and that “Ichabod” has been written over the doorposts?  TIME WILL TELL but until that final vote is counted WE MUST WORK while there are day and hope.

The Bernie Sanders disciple, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s victory over Incumbent Establishment Democrat, Joseph Crowley was a total surprise to me.  I guess that I should not have been surprised because we have been witnessing a shift in the millennials, the openness of Academia, and the fondness of the MSM for Socialism or the Socialism of Bernie Sanders.  The Democratic Party has been transitioning to that position for decades and has now become emboldened to the point they no longer hide from their Socialist ideology and agenda.  That could split the Democrats down the middle but I suggest this is the new face of the Leftist Wing of our Government and had it not been for the dirty dealings of Hillary Clinton and her gang of thugs in the DNC, Bernie would have been the nominee and might have won.  Sometimes, I wonder which would have been worse, Bernie or Hillary and am eternally grateful I can only speculate and do not have to answer that as the result of a real event.

Ms. Oscaio-Cortez wants what Bernie wants and so do most of the Democrats running for office in 2018, including Beto O Rourke (Senate Candidate) and Lupe Valdez (Gubernatorial Candidate) in Texas.  They hide their true colors, some of the time but they are very pro many of the Bernie Sanders Socialist Positions.  They Nationalized Healthcare for all or Obamacare and Socialized medicine.  A healthcare system that has failed here and is failing around the world in the sense of quality and timeliness of care.  They want more federal jobs and even want the federal government to guarantee everyone a job.  I guess we are back to the promise of two-mules and a plot of land or something.  They want free tuition for everyone including illegals. Education is not a Right it is a Privilege and a Prize to be worked for and earned.  Although I believe that most college tuition is overpriced I cannot support FREE TUITION (there is no such thing as a free ride in life) because I know who ultimately pays that bill.  They are for Open Borders and in that believe that the Border Patrol and ICE are virtual terrorist organizations and need to be abolished.  Beto O Rourke even said, “The borders are the safest they have ever been.”  SERIOUSLY?  He knows that is the spin of the Leftist and a total departure from the truth and reality but many believe it.

Ms. Oscaio-Cortez is another of the Leftist who wants “gun control” and so are the two Democrats from Texas.  Mr. O Rourke has claimed to be Pro-Second Amendment but when the Democrats take their position he is standing there with them. Ms. Valdez is a former sheriff of Dallas County and is very Pro-Sanctuary City and opposed to supporting or cooperating with federal authorities dealing with Illegal Immigration.  The two Democrats from Texas are Big Government proponents and desire to weaken the State.  They want to force us to comply with the wishes of various leftist groups whose wishes directly conflicts with our core convictions religiously.  They are all Pro-Abortion even though Mr. O Rourke would like to paint his as a compassionate and reasoned stance.  They are supportive of the DREAM Act and want to provide Amnesty and a Pathway to Citizenship to all who have come here ILLEGALLY.  Mr. O Rourke has called our Border Patrol and ICE a militarization style’ enforcement and wants that to end.  He has called for us to rejoin the ‘Paris Climate Accord’ and appears to be a devoted follower of Al Gore’s Global Warming or Climate Change initiative.

I have not touched on the many claims of those candidates but suffice it to say, they are extremely liberal and follow the prescribed Leftist Socialist Progressive Globalist Agenda of the Democratic Party.  Mr. O Rourke claims that he is only taking money from individuals, not corporations and PACs but who are the individuals contributing to him?  What states and organizations do they represent?  Dig deep and you’ll find that a ton of money is flooding into Texas by Liberal Leftwing Groups trying to unseat Ted Cruz and turn Texas blue.  My concern, at this point, is not that Texas will elect either of those but the margins may be too close for comfort.  Will that signal that Texas is turning purple and becoming bluer or is it a sign that a significant number of people do not like Ted Cruz or Governor Abbott?  Beto O Rourke is somewhat affable and Ted Cruz is far from ‘warm and fuzzy’.  Cruz is often incredibly ‘matter of fact’ and his detailing of issues appears to go over the heads of many who want a more simplified explanation.  That is not likely to change but I pray that my fellow Texans will not take the bait and believe the spin and rhetoric of the Leftists and VOTE NO ON Beto and Lupie and keep Texas Red, Constitutional, and Conservative.  I have no view of what New York will do because New York is New York and even New Yorkers have no idea what New York will do.  Left is Left and it often seems the farther Left one goes in New York, Chicago, or California the better the chances of winning are.

I’m watching the Supreme Court and how the Republicans handle this nomination.  I am watching, the Mueller Investigation and believe that in September or October Mr. Mueller will drop what will be called ‘bombshell’ indictments or allegations in an attempt to sway the outcome of the elections.  I am watching the maneuvering of Congress leading up to the elections to see if the Republicans have any strategic organizational skills and a battle plan designed to protect and defend the Constitution.  I am watching to see if the Democrats will continue to beat dead horses, and take bad positions that backfire on them or if they reorganize and reunite and reignite their voting base.  I am watching the voting irregularities and how many states and districts will open the door for voter fraud and the unqualified and illegals to vote.  I am watching America and believe that this mid-term election, on a national scale, will predict the future of America.

I know what I want and that is the Free Constitutional Republic where the government is Limited, Taxes are Lower, the Borders are Secure, the National Defense Strong, and all men are viewed as ‘created equal with the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”  I long for America to be, “one nation under God.”  I long for us to become ‘indivisible”.  I long for there to be “liberty and justice for all” including the just prosecution of the political elitists in Washington DC, not just partisan coups.  I long for my nation to be restored and return to her moral moorings and I stand for “Faith, Family, and Freedom”.

God bless you and God bless America!


BLOG POST 2 - Elections Have Consequences

If we do and allow the Leftist, Socialist, Progressive, Liberal Democrats to regain control of one or both Houses of Congress we will do great harm if not destroy the Republic.  I know that is a heavy statement to make.  I also know that there are those who argue, “We will survive, we always do and have.”  Let me caution you, this is different than anything we have faced and with each electoral cycle and the intensity of those who desire to “fundamentally transform” America it grows more serious.  I said in 2016 that election was the most important and crucial election we had faced thus far and it was.  Now I am warning that the 2018 mid-term elections are potentially, if not factually the most critical we have ever faced.  Believe me or believe me not, your choice but I hope you will hear why I believe that.

The Special Investigation led by Robert Mueller is designed for one purpose and one purpose only.  That, in a nutshell, is stopping Donald Trump and either removing him from office, forcing him to resign, or preventing him from being reelected or all the above.  The investigation has never been about finding evidence of a crime because NONE OF THEM believe there was a crime committed by Donald Trump.  The Mueller investigation and the token indictments are a part of a much larger picture and purpose.  It is designed to build a dossier for the Democrats to use, should they return to power in 2018 and develop articles of impeachment against the President.  No matter how failed the investigation appears and how minor the charges are leveled against various people, it will not stop!  The Republicans in Congress and the Department of Justice have no intention of stopping it for many reasons, one of which is fear of public opinion.  Another reason is that many of the Republicans and DOJ officials want Trump gone as well.

The Establishment is highly offended that Donald Trump is in the White House.  He was not supposed to be there, in their view, and therefore they believe they are justified in anything and everything they do as being for the ‘greater good.’  We are discovering that the FBI was less than forthcoming in their dealings with General Flynn and that reality could vacate the charges against him.  They were apparently less than forthcoming with the FISA Court and that should have very negative repercussions regarding every case they have developed and cloud the investigation to the point that Congress says, ENOUGH!  I do not expect that to happen, but it could and should.  The indictments against Russians for being Russians are simply diversions and an attempt to provide the appearance of the preponderance of evidence for the Democrats to use in the future.  After all, how can you explain Hillary’s defeat if it was not Russian manipulation of the election?  The Leftists and the Never Trumpers are all in agreement, Trump must go, and they follow the Alinsky model and motto that the “end justifies the means” and they will “never” let a crisis go to waste.  Tell a lie big enough, loud enough, and frequently enough and it will be believed.  THAT’S WHAT IS HAPPENING!

Let me take you back to October 2016 and then President Barack Hussein Obama’s declaration in the Rose Garden regarding ‘rigging the election’.  He was chiding Donald Trump calling him a “whiner” and declared something that was conveniently forgotten and abandoned just weeks later when Trump won!   He said, in response to Trump’s claims that the election was being rigged or there was an attempt to rig the election in favor of Hillary.  Obama said, “You start whining before the game’s even over?”  He said that Trump’s allegations were not “based on facts.”  He said that “I have not seen, in my lifetime or in modern political history any presidential candidate trying to discredit the election and the election process before votes have even taken place.  It’s unprecedented.  It happens to be based on no facts.  Every expert regardless of political party regardless of ideology conservative or liberal who has ever examined these issues in a serious way will tell you that instances of significant voter fraud are not to be found.”  He went on to say, “The larger point that I want to make is there is no serious person out there who would suggest that somehow you could even rig America’s elections.  In part, because they are so decentralized, and the numbers of votes involved.  There is no evidence that has happened in the past or there are incidences in which that will happen this time.”  He chided Trump for whining and suggested he go and try to make his case to get votes. He also said, “…if Mr. Trump got the most votes, then it would be my expectation of Hillary Clinton to offer a gracious concession speech and pledge to work with him in order to make sure that the American people benefit from an effective government.  It would be my job to welcome Mr. Trump, regardless of what he said about me or my differences with him on my opinions, and escort him to the Capitol, in which there would be a peaceful transfer of power.”  Where is Jeff Wilson when we need him – Mr. President YOU LIED!

Immediately after the election and they realized that Donald Trump had won, Obama, Hillary, his justice department and it appears the FBI kicked their efforts into high gear to OUST TRUMP.  Mr. Obama had declared there was no Russian hacking and then after the election to give a semblance of validity to the claims of the Left and the Never Trump Crowd he placed sanctions on Russia, kicked out some diplomats, and began the public appeal to believe there was collusion with Trump and Russian manipulation in the election.  How soon the Left forgets and how convenient their arguments change.

America, if the Democrats win in November and reclaim one or both Houses of Congress there will be articles of impeachment issued against the President, the Tax Reform will be repealed, and there will be things done to entrench Obamacare to the point that we will never be rid of it.  The proverbial Fat Lady will not just be tuning up but will be singing loudly.  Everyone in America will suffer.  There will be a massive attempt to “ban guns” at many levels and for many types of firearms.  They will attempt to force at least one of the conservatives off the Supreme Court and replace them with their preferred Leftist Ideologue.  If that happens, our Founders and the Framers will be turning over in their graves saying, “We Warned You!”

Remember November and let’s Keep America Free so we can Make America Great and Safe again!  God bless you and God bless America is my prayer and desire!
