Short Takes – Lessons That Should Be Learned

Lessons That Should Be Learned

Apart from the fact that the Democrat Party is in a shambles, and they’ll never admit it,  Democrats PAC’s are not necessarily so and are now going all out in funding state and local races, an area dominated by Republicans in recent years, and starting to win some. That is bad for Americanism and the Republican party and good for Socialism.

One lesson we should take away from the Virginia governor’s race is that the Democrats will apply lessons learned to all upcoming state races, while the GOP reads polls. It is clear that the Democrat PAC’s have gone after and energized their base. The scale of their effort even reached into many less reported, smaller state and local races in Red States and are bearing fruit. They are organized and the GOP still haven’t passed a meaningful bill (health care or Tax reform). I’m afraid the Establishment Republicans will once again fumble away the game.

The Republicans sit on their hands and worry only about how to keep “moderates” in office and keep out conservatives. Republicans ignore at their peril, the ferocity of the coming Democrat campaigns for Red State Governorships, Senatorial and Congressional races as well as  Secretaries of State and Attorney General’s positions. It is these smaller races where the strength of a party lies for fending off lawsuits against conservative state initiatives and for holding power when redistricting congressional districts comes up every ten years.

Democrat PAC’s bombard my email ten to fifteen times every day pleading for donations, even as low as a $1.00, to combat Republicans who are destroying Obama’s legacy, shredding the Constitution and with other outlandish claims that Trumps impeachment is on hand if they only had only a few dollars more. These are followed up with sad pleas that they missed their goal because I didn’t contribute and yet, I read where the Democrats are gathering donations at a rate that far exceeds the GOP’s efforts.

I can understand that. I no longer donate to the GOP because they have become a money grubbing organization, not to promote the conservative Republican agenda, that they despise by the way,  but to fund the elections of moderate candidates willing to become swamp creatures, or to fund Democrats if a Republican candidate doesn’t signal he/she is one of them.

I don’t know about Ed Gillespie except that he falls into the “Moderate Republican” category, gave lip service to Trump but didn’t or wouldn’t embrace Trump’s immigration policy, military buildup policy, and healthcare policy, tax-reform or job creation. Trumps record of success on all of those, except replacing Obamacare, are masterstrokes of managerial efficiency. Reducing the “deep state” is going on apace. The Republicans will be facing a catharsis if they deliver to us any more such losses.

The moderate Republicans will always fail because they don’t realize that Donald Trump is a successful business manager, a promoter of what’s great about America and America’s workers, and not simply an ineffective drone of a president that elite politicians can manipulate to affect domestic and foreign policy to satisfy their corrupt ends.  

Trump will never be a tchotchke. Daily he sets the news agenda for the media. and has them chasing rainbows, creating fake stories just to fill space and directing issues where he wants them. In Virginia’s governor race, with Trump away, the GOP did none of these. The GOP is leaderless, adrift on a sea of inaction. Perhaps they should join Trumps party!  

Remember, freedom is the goal, the constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (10Nov17)

Republican, A Metaphor for Incompetence?

Opinion

Well, well, well. Democrats decisively won the Va. governorship and now scream it was a joyous repudiation of that awful Donald Trump. Lying between the real issues and the screaming propaganda that the Republicans are on the ropes, is the simple little fact that Northern Va. is the deepest part of the ‘swamp’ where many, if not most of the swamp dwellers reside, including #Never Trump Republicans. Remember, the GOP Senate Fund has actually been used to help fund Democrats campaigns if the Republican candidate is conservative with Tea Party connections or one who challenges the ‘RiNO Establishments’ official line.

Important to both campaigns for Va. Governor, was the complete failure by either candidate to face the issue of Obama’s collapsing health care scheme; the Democrats because they didn’t want to remind voters that Obamacare was indeed collapsing, and the Republicans because they didn’t want to remind voters of the incompetence of the Republican Party by its failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. Many RiNO’s still dwell among them.

All the liberal media blowhards are screaming exactly the same thing. “Everybody hates Trump.” But, do they? The results of a new poll published yesterday said that if Hillary and Trump faced off today, Trump would still win. What the politicians up there don’t realize is that the majority of American’s actually hate them and what they stand for, more than they do Donald Trump.

Trump after all, is fulfilling his campaign promises, striking down, as fast as he can, the unelected regulatory bureaucracy Obama imposed on us to kill our economy, reducing the size of government employment rolls, energizing the economy, creating employment opportunities, slowing down illegal immigration, reestablishing America’s status as a valuable and trustworthy military partner against crackpot dictators, and reorganizing fair trade practices with other countries. Not a legacy to be ignored. He doesn’t like the UN either and that can’t hurt.

The roots of the tree of Socialists dogma have been well nourished for years because we didn’t pay attention. The rabid reaction of America’s leftists, its college administrations and the millennial students they are brainwashing, have been ignited into inflamed passion, less by Hillary’s loss than by Trumps victory. This, all while the Democrat party itself collapses around them. Hillary did collude with the Russians, She did sell 20% of our uranium to them and she did rig the Democrat Convention to beat out Bernie Sanders. Now comes Donna Brazile with her tell all book, probably a lame scheme to destroy Hillary once and for all, and set up Michelle Obama for a presidential run. Remember, it’s a year out and the questions about Barak’s Obama’s unknown past still haven’t been answered. Why is that?

For that same one whole year, the crap the left has flung against the Trump train has failed to stick. The media, always leading the anti-Trump parade were falling back in confusion until one or two blue state election victories re-energized what they believe is the true message, that  everybody does hate Trump. Well, sorry CNN, but no, they don’t.

Trump will succeed by the merit of his own skill as a capital businessman, bringing his supporters along with him. He will fail if the Trump public doesn’t start their own campaigns to strike back, not just against the sinister Democrats, but the RiNo Republicans themselves. Some are already fleeing Trump’s success. More should be encouraged to follow. This is our only opportunity, short of revolution, to correct our screwed up government and it is only Trump who is capable of Making America Great Again. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (09Nov17)

Short Takes – Abdication

Opinion

Abdication

The decline of America’s two political parties is not a surprise. They have cheated America’s voters leaving them searching for Constitutional alternatives. The GOP’s abdication of its conservative principles presents a signal problem that can no longer be ignored; problems that voters saw coming and attempted to fix in 2012, 2014 and 2016, without success, is evidence enough that the GOP is broken and represents nobody except themselves. They don’t want to do anything lest they rock the boat and lose favor with their money suppliers and the media. The GOP has clearly abdicated its role as America’s conservative party. In other words, there isn’t one any more. They GOP elites didn’t get the message.

The Marxist controlled Democrat party holds no effective power in government except to act as obstructionists. Their leadership is composed of geriatric, old Marxists and Progressives, products of the 1960’s anti-Vietnam war era, still searching for the magic formula that will enable them to complete their socialization America, interrupted by Donald Trump. Count them gone.

For Conservatives, the Republican party has long claimed they held the key to salvation until we learned, and are still learning, that they are in fact liars, cheats and shills for big government and the cash that flows from it. There are some serious exceptions like David Perdue, Tom Cotton, Mike Lee and maybe even Tom Cruz. The party has more than its share of treacherous villains like the unprincipled John McCain and feckless leftist, Susan Collins among others, who join the Democrats in obstructing the Conservative agenda, that Donald Trump seized and gave voice to the deep concerns of many Americans about the direction the socialists were taking America.

How do we solve the problem? A new party? Nope!  No matter what it’s called a new party will simply not work. The Libertarians have been out there for years and have not advanced above the popularity level they first achieved since the beginning. I agree they are Constitutional conservatives, with exceptions, and it’s those exceptions that have them stalled in third place.

The only course available for conservative Republicans, independents and Democrats alarmed at the deceit of the Ruling Caste, is to replace the old GOP, member by member, in primary challenges by conservative candidates until the whole rotten GOP house of cards collapses.  

Why? Because that’s where the money is. That’s where the donations come to, that’s the crucible of corruption, that’s the seat of power and that’s the swamp Trump wants to drain. It must be done and it can’t be done from outside. The formation of new parties with their petty individual demands, would turn America into a squabbling cacophony of incompetent, third rate politicians, a mirror image example of the socialist European Union, especially Germany.  

Conservative Americans want a return of their personal liberty and respect for their individual achievements. The GOP is not giving it, but Trump is. He has identified several issues that will restore those lost liberties: eliminating Obama’s regulatory state, cutting taxes, creating jobs, enforcing immigration laws, and attempting to fix the Republican healthcare fiasco. Trump is trying to reshape policy in these areas, as Americans want. Apparently the GOP won’t help but insist that they, acting as our ruling class, are too important to be removed.

Trump’s success will positively impact America for generations to come. Can there be a constitutional renewal in America? Not if our betters have anything to say about it. It’s time to replace them. We can start by re registering as Independents. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (25Sep17)

An Excellent Essay – Re: Charlottesville, Va.

Opinion

Trump, the Boy Scouts and Obamacare

Opinion

Trump, the Boy Scouts and Obamacare.

Because the Boy Scouts wear brown uniforms and listened in their thousands to President Trump address their West Virginia Jamboree, as all Presidents have been invited to do, the mean street media has chosen to compare Trump to Adolf Hitler addressing the Hitler Jungend in support of National Socialism. That’s a mean smear of the Boy Scout movement.

Nothing could more asinine then that clumsy media attempt at political comparison. It’s all visual of course, boys in brown uniforms and a strong leader addressing them. The media’s intent had no other purpose, expressed or implied, then to make Trump look like a fascist dictator and denigrate the Boy Scouts as mere Hitler Youths. That the boys cheered wildly is because they realize Trump was returning to them the very reasons of their oath taking pledges.

The last thing in the world Donald Trump could possibly be is a National Socialist. At the Scout’s Jamboree, we saw no torch light marching, no goose stepping around a massive bonfire, no adoration of happy youths singing the Horst Wessel song, Die Fahne Hoch. As usual Trump delivered his prepared speech with a few personal asides thrown in and the press went ballistic.

Obama was closer to being a National Socialist than Trump ever could be, but Obama lacked that killer instinct to make the final important decisions needed to implement and make stick his National Socialists policies. Remember the videos right after Obama’s first inauguration, of a cadre of young negro boys marching into a room, arms swinging like storm troopers, snapping to attention on command and reciting their oaths declaring their total commitment to Obama? Those boys are now eight years older and are still out there. Doesn’t ISIS do the same with their children, brainwashing them into such a hatred of the West that they’re willing to cut throats, wear explosive vests into crowded streets and kill their enemies as directed? Yes!

Obama offered Americans a plate of socialism, like his Obamacare scheme. He supported it by promises that were all lies then left his political minions (the DNC) to carry the ball in his attempt to fundamentally change America. Obama had two full terms to make it happen and he still couldn’t get it done and now his plans are quickly unraveling at the hands of a potent businessman who recognized socialist crap when he saw it and tells the boy scouts why. Too bad three Republican Senators, Collins, Murkowski and McCain, refused to come along.

National Socialism, aka: fascism, is simply one side of the same Socialist coin. Communism, with slight social variations, occupy’s the reverse side. National Socialism (fascism) permits its citizens to own their homes, farms and factories so long as they grow or produce what the state demands. It is better that the citizens concur because outwardly, all seems serene and in agreement. Failure to do so earns a late-night visit by the States Secret Police.

Communism on the other hand, owns everything, homes, farms, apartments and means of production and doles it out to their citizens, like single payer heart care, according to their needs. The Communist State, in return, demands from its citizens their labor according to their ability. Not a good formula for economic development so State bureaucrats set production goals that must be met. Not a happy place to be, “from you according to your ability, to you according to your need.”  Both systems promise its citizens a happy Socialist utopia. “Comarads, just do what you are told and be happy about it.” They have a secret police too. Trump makes no such claims. He’s a pure pro American capitalist and told the Boy Scouts that. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em! (28Jul17)

Casey Cagle’s Reprehensible Acts, The Michael Williams Press Conference that missed the Target

Featured, Politics

“The Die Has Been Cast”

Swing and a miss, strike two.  State Senator Michael Williams now has two strikes against him with the media in his quest to be the next Governor of Georgia.

Williams’ first strike was at the State GOP convention when he announced in a speech that a member from  Lt. Governor Casey Cagle’s campaign team approached him backstage and offered him a deal to get out of the Governor’s race.  In his speech at the GOP convention Williams claimed in front of 1500 people that he was offered the Chairmanship of the Appropriations Committee if he would get out of the race.  He never named the individual with Cagle’s team who made the offer in the backroom deal.  An accusation with no name leaving the media hanging. Strike one.

Williams’ press conference last Thursday at the Capitol was strike two.

Williams sent out an invite last Wednesday announcing a press conference he would be holding at the Capitol Thursday afternoon. The invitation stated he would be revealing the reprehensible acts of Lt. Governor Casey Cagle.

The press conference was scheduled for 2PM and Williams was 30 minutes late.  The press conference only lasted twelve minutes.  I attended this press conference and from memory the only thing I got out of it was ‘campaign Casey, a member of Casey Cagle’s team, offered him a committee chairmanship to get out of the race.  Angered that Cagle may have out maneuvered him on minimum wage for Sheriff deputies, Willams directly asked Cagle to get out of the race and something about “tying shoes”.

The media pressed Williams to give the name of who from Cagle’s team offered him the chairmanship. Williams’ only response was, ‘not at this time.’  I asked him the final question of the press conference, “did you not say that it was a member of Cagle’s team?” Williams said, “correct.”  And I asked, “and you’re not prepared to give us who that is”?  Williams: “no”.  Williams then told everyone to have a nice day and walked off taking no more questions.  

Williams held up a copy of SB 254 entitled: Minimum annual salary for each deputy appointed by each Sheriff; provide; Local Law Enforcement Officer Compensation Commission.  

Senators Greg Kirk and Josh McKoon co-sponsored the bill along with Williams.  Williams claims that Cagle is the reason the bill went nowhere during the past legislative session.  Maybe Williams thought this would be his strongest campaign issue. This could show he is the true friend of law enforcement in the campaign.

In May Cagle announced along with Greg Kirk the Compensation of Police and Sheriffs Task Force.  Statement released by the Lt. Governor’s office, “The service and dedication of our law enforcement officials is nothing short of heroic,” said Lt. Governor Cagle. “We must make every effort to ensure local compensation packages are both competitive and fair to those who protect and serve. COPS will help local governments identify ways to maximize their support for the men and women who bravely protect our communities and neighborhoods.”

Kirk, one of Williams’ co-sponsors gone and with the other Josh McKoon running for Secretary of State he may not have any backup concerning his claim that Cagle killed the bill.

Recently Cagle commented about a possible sheriff deputy minimum wage.  He has not gone into any detail though.

This week is the Sheriffs’ Association’s Summer Conference where each candidate will get a chance to address the Association.  

Brian Kemp, Hunter Hill, Michael Williams and Casey Cagle will have their chance to make their pitch.  You can forget this week which one is the true conservative, cause this week all you will hear is ‘I am the true friend of law enforcement’, {no} ‘I’m the true friend of law enforcement,’ {no}  ……

My suspicion is that the Sheriffs’ Association will support whomever they think will be best able to get something done for them when it comes to minimum wage for deputies.  If that turns out to be Cagle then that may mean  Williams has been totally out maneuvered on the issue and SB 254 could turn out to be, as a campaign issue for Williams, no more than good initiative/poor judgment.

You can understand Williams’ frustration.  If Cagle gets almost every Sheriff in the state to actively campaign for him that is big.  Really big.  Maybe that is the ‘reprehensible’ act.

But, Williams’ shoe tying comment directed toward Casey Cagle was a ‘low blow’ no pun intended.  Williams experienced several personal attacks especially during his first State Senate race.  The rumors are already flying and emails being sent concerning Williams’ past.  Maybe Williams’ comment was a subtle warning not to go personal.  It’s disappointing this early in the campaign that things are taking a dirty turn rather than  staying focused on the issues.

The voters of Georgia may want to hear about issues like casino gambling, rural economic development, tax reform, healthcare, infrastructure…… not who can tie their own shoes.

I feel Williams’ gets one more strike with the media.  I can only speak for myself.  If he calls another press conference I will attend. Williams has to make good on his claims of reprehensible acts by Cagle soon or that will be strike three and he will lose his credibility. It’s a long time until election day and Williams will need the media to take him serious to help get his message out.

Kemp and Hill have not commented on the Williams’ attacks of Casey Cagle.  They both seem to be able to keep their campaigns focused on the issues and not the dirt for the time being.  Odds are they will have to join the mud pit before the race is over.

Michael Williams was the first Georgia politician holding a state office to support Donald Trump for President.  Williams is attempting to run a Donald Trump-style campaign.  There’s only one problem, he is not Donald Trump.

Trump never held public office. He had no legislative voting track record.  He could run against Washington D.C. and the Media.

Williams has a State Senate voting record. During his first two years in the State Senate his voting record looks like he was working well with the Republican Establishment.  His third year looks more like someone preparing to run for governor.

I am not questioning Williams’ conservative credentials, just the direction his campaign is headed.  If you going to demand Casey Cagle  get out of the race, it’s time to give the reason why with the facts.

 

 

 

Is The Swamp Being Drained?

Opinion

Is The Swamp Being Drained?

It must be difficult to remain a loyal Democrat when that once great American party is disintegrating because they no longer embrace the pro American message that made America exceptional, instead of promoting a foreign socialist message that aims to make America common. American’s may be individually common, but they are not Socialists or weren’t, until the Democrat Party changed its colors from red, white and blue, to shades of the rainbow.

America’s history is filled with stories of people fleeing to its shores, some for religious freedom and some for political and economic freedom. Many, most in fact, fled because didn’t want to remain surf’s to an upper class who had all the assets that made life worth living and retained all the power that could make life a hell, and often did. They were people who found little or no relief from their government because the upper classes were the government.

Those people came here because none of the ‘class’ nonsense they fled was here to interfere with their self-determination, self-reliance and freedom to prosper or pray, as they saw fit. Wise politicians of the time kept religion out of the Governments hands. Rules of conduct were limited, basically scriptural and life progressed freely, as did America. For many, it was the best of times, but not the worst. When class status tried to follow, and the taxation necessary to maintain it increased, among other issues, a war ensued and that ended that.

In America, wealth creation does not constitute a class status but Democrats use it as a hammer to denigrate Republicans. That’s sad because if it were so, many Democrats wouldn’t be in it because they hate the idea of being labeled ‘upper class,’ but they don’t hate the idea of being wealthy. However, despite the best efforts of the founding fathers who's foresaw the dangers of unbridled power, a political class did develop, oft times with wealthy influence (bribery), that gave a measure of unearned power to individual legislators that they could manipulate to their financial advantage. Quickly, a political class, ‘the swamp,’ developed.

On 8 November 2016, a great sigh of relief was heard across the land and the political class went nuts because Trump promised to drain the swamp and started doing it. Months later they’re still going nuts because slowly, the swamp started to drain and the dysfunction of the corrupt political class, intent on stopping the hemorrhage by organizing their best combined efforts to stop if not eliminate the threat, has started apace. Their animus is showing.

Now, do we suspect the swamp might not get drained after all? The other great American Party, the Republicans, many who slop at the trough of political class privilege, have acted against America’s best interests because it's more important to them to have power than save America. The “Never Trump” Republicans actively, but stealthily, connive with Democrats to undermine the President. This is the chance conservative America has waited for and yet the alleged GOP conservatives can’t accept that. By doing so they ignore the Socialist govt. that for eight destructive years, suppressed conservative Americans in order to maintain the corrupt status quo, that was always the socialists Democrat agenda.

With Trump’s election, that’s about all washed away, yet establishment Republicans still believe in Political Class superiority over the people and so conspire with the dying Democrats to keep the swamp from being drained. Will they lose our trust or have they already lost it? Recent elections suggest they should not be too alarmed but other issues are in motion now. The 2018 midterms could challenge their thinking if not their actions. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
