GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Austin Scott (R-Ga.), and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) today sent a letter to Windstream underscoring the importance of providing increased access to broadband – particularly in rural areas – in the midst of COVID-19.
“As representatives of thousands of Windstream customers, we write today regarding the impact coronavirus has had on broadband access in rural communities throughout Georgia,” they wrote. “In the past, we have written to you regarding the inadequate internet service our constituents are receiving despite your company’s acceptance of federal dollars to expand access. While we know Windstream has upgraded some areas that are more populated and less rural, many of our constituents continue to struggle with poor broadband speeds.”
For years, Windstream customers across Georgia have consistently struggled to gain access to reliable broadband speeds. Congress has taken significant steps toward expanding rural broadband infrastructure in recent years, including securing federal funding to providers in rural areas. However, some carriers – like Windstream – have failed to provide adequate broadband speeds to consumers despite collecting taxpayer dollars. As this pandemic is forcing more and more Georgians to rely on the internet, access to reliable broadband is more critical than ever before.
“Due to the coronavirus outbreak, thousands of Georgians are being forced to work, learn, and recreate from home. This undoubtedly has increased the strain on the networks your consumers depend upon. Over the past several years, we have heard complaints of a network that is overburdened and cannot keep up during peak use. Even though we have been calling for increased internet access in rural areas for years, this moment in time shows that Windstream has yet to meet the mark.”

Has anyone ever thought of the fact that most of our Christmas songs and traditions are only
about 75 or so years old? Doesn’t it seem like this array has just always been there, always been
Well, it hasn’t always been so joyous and celebrated as it came to be after World War II.
Why is that?
Prior to the victory of the Allies and their return to home and family, Christmas was more
reserved and localized. Songs such as The Messiah and other religious hymns were in place, but
jolly and more secular songs came along with popular movies, such as White Christmas and
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, among others were the result of a desire to make the
Christmas holiday a very special time for families and friends.
Dad, brother, uncle, son and military women etc. had faced the horror of war, with its death and
destruction. There were sights that they could never unsee. Those who were able to return home,
to their wives, husbands, sweethearts and families, wanted to erase those thoughts to the best of
their ability. They had fought pure, unadulterated evil and had won. It seemed their intention to
eradicate such influences in the years to come.
Many of our Greatest Generation put a great deal of time and effort into making the world as
right as possible, to bring as much joy as possible to those they loved. Not only did they save the
world, they saved the best part of themselves and shared that desire for happiness and perfection
with the making of happy stories, happy songs and familiar bliss. No one can argue that the
generation of the 40s and 50’s worked very hard to create as much perfection in society as they
could. It was a halcyon time that, unfortunately, will never be repeated.
Television and movies had their morality department and strived to show family life as a
network of love, discipline and happy endings. Father always knew best and the Donna Reed
show lauded the middle-class family life.
What has happened to society that it has come from the pure entertainment of those shows to
today’s reality television, moral corruption and disdain of most things that relate to God and
In 1965, a wonderful radio announcer named Paul Harvey made an amazing prophecy on his
weekly show. The title was, If I was the devil.
Anyone who hasn’t heard or read this far-reaching piece that has come to pass in ways that no
one would have guessed. One of his lines quoted from the transcript is “If I were the devil, I
would make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.”
How close is that? He had it nailed and 54 years later, it is true.
Christmas was still reverent in the 70s, and the 80s. People dressed up, had parties, visited with
family and it was a happy time. God was still the Man in Charge in the White House (mostly)
and it reflected on the nation.
The 90s brought us the Clintons and their version of “morality” and the great decline began for
Now in 2019, there are fewer parties, fewer gathering of family and friends than ever. Christmas
cards are not a thing anymore, just send a generic online greeting.
People are well engrossed in their electronic devices. Social life and the moral pressure of
society is long gone. Stores decorate for Christmas in August and begin the big sale that lasts
until well after the New Year.
Retailers completely pass over Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday from the Pilgrim
days when living through the winter to harvest was an occasion for thanking Almighty God.
Even Charlie Brown and his gang in Peanuts, when it aired in 1965, complained of the
commercialization of Christmas, lamenting the lack of meaning for monetary gain.
When Christmas songs from the 70s and 80s are played, it is depressing almost to the point of
tears when a comparison is made of the warm, loving, wonderful time of those decades to
today’s commercial apathy.
Maybe, this is an “old folks’ rant about the good old days, but what can be gleaned from today’s
lukewarm electronic holiday?
America has best go back to Ronald Reagan and remember his line:
“If we ever forget we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
If Christians don’t stand up and fight for our basic joys of the Lord, His sacrifice for us
and the right to celebrate such, these rights will be taken away by the Liberal Left with
their Atheistic and destructive ways. There are no more free countries to find with such
liberties as we enjoy. They must not be lost, as they will never be found again.
GMFTO with #BKP #AnythingGoes BKP’s Opinion on Local, State and National news and politics.
Let’s talk Georgia 6th Congressional District this morning. Not so fast Karen Handel there is the #TheOtherCandidate
Our guest at 8:45 as the AJC refers to her “The other” candidate Marjorie Greene.
The U.S. Women’s National Team has been making headlines recently for victories as a team, and as individuals for political statements.
Last week, the team won their second back-to-back World Cup. Shortly after the game, player Allie Long was seen dropping an American flag during the post-game celebration. Her teammate Kelley O’Hara recognized the significance of a flag being dropped on the ground, and immediately scooped it up.
One report from The Daily Wire explained that Long dropped the flag to participate in a celebratory dance with teammate Megan Rapinoe. But the video quickly went viral and comments poured in criticizing Long for her carelessness and thanking O’Hara for stepping in.
It’s very possible that Long meant no disrespect, but just got caught up in the moment and didn’t know that an American flag is NEVER supposed to touch the ground. Nonetheless, millions of viewers were not happy.
If you watch the video, it doesn’t appear that Long is trying to make any sort of political statement by dropping the flag. However teammate Megan Rapinoe has CERTAINLY been making headlines recently for her statements.
Although Rapinoe is mainly known for being a phenomenal soccer player (she won both the Golden Ball and Golden Boot awards this year), her progressive ideals have, let’s just say…raised eyebrows. Rapinoe is very outspoken about her homosexuality and dislike of President Donald Trump. She has followed the example of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick by refusing to sing or put her hand over her heart during the National Anthem. The pose she makes after scoring a goal of standing with her arms outstretched is supposed to be a symbol of fighting for equal pay, race relations and issues at the United States/Mexican border.
For years athletes have used the attention given them for their athletic success as a means to shed light on their social platforms. There’s nothing wrong with that if they’re promoting awareness for a disease or a foundation that supports children with special needs. But should we as a society draw a line when it comes to political issues?
Some would say there’s no problem- depending on what they do to make the statement. Certainly being a famous athlete gives one more media attention than the average person. Like I mentioned in my last column post, there’s no difference in an athlete and an actor or actress, and they supply their endorsement all the time!
When Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the National Anthem in 2016, many Americans were outraged. Not necessarily because of his protest of police brutality, but because he chose to do so in a way that many Americans found disrespectful to those who have served in the military. I was, and still am, one of those people. In my opinion Kaepernick and now Rapinoe are missing the mark. Kneeling or not showing respect during the National Anthem is to turn a blind eye to those who have sacrificed everything to give you the freedom to play your sport. It doesn’t have anything to do with first responders.
Nowadays there’s a gray area between sports segments and political talk shows. The two intersect on a daily basis. Just the other day on our live sports show, Instant Replay, my co-host Dave Garner and I had an entire segment dedicated to Nike’s decision to pull the sneakers with a design of the American flag sewn by Betsy Ross on the back. This decision was made after Kaepernick insisted that the flag had a racial history.
I suppose the whole reason this gray area exists is because of the technological advancements of the media. Celebrities who want use their status as a means to promote a certain viewpoint can do so more quickly because of how easy it is to post to Twitter. And in a society that demands news at every moment, something has to take up time in a sports show!
So back to the original question- should there be a line, and if so, where?
Here’s my opinion- sports is sports and politics is politics. Part of the reason I watch a football game or a baseball game is because I want to watch a football game or a baseball game. We are living in a time where politics are more divisive than ever before. One reasons sports are as big as they are today is because of the communities they create. Why should we mix something that causes so many problems to interfere with something that is supposed to help solve them?
When I turn on ESPN, I don’t want to listen to people debate over what is considered disrespectful to the National Anthem. And the next time I watch Fox News, I DARN sure don’t want to hear the name Colin Kaepernick.

Last week, Georgia Republican Governor, Brian Kemp, announced his appointment of a metro-Atlanta police chief, John King, to be the replacement for the now-suspended elected Insurance Commissioner, Jim Beck. In Georgia, Insurance Commissioner is a statewide, constitutional office.
Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the corporate-funded, anti-enforcement lobbyist group, GALEO, was quick to send out a media release praising the “historic” appointment and boasting that King had assisted the activist group as keynote speaker at a GALEO breakfast fundraiser several years ago.
“Congrats to Chief King, close friend of @GALEOorg !” was the much-repeated celebratory post on the GALEO Facebook page.
Kemp’s Insurance Commissioner appointee has no background or experience in the insurance industry.
Kemp’s appointment of the GALEO-connected police chief to Insurance Commissioner comes as a shock to many Republican voters in the state. Georgia’s conservative U.S. Senator David Perdue stopped the Obama nomination of a one-time GALEO board member, Dax Lopez, to a federal bench seat in 2016 because of his concern with the GALEO relationship.
Perhaps unknown to most Republican voters, in addition to marching in the streets of Atlanta against enforcement of existing federal laws on immigration, GALEO and its director are well-known in the state Capitol for lobbying against state legislation aimed at reporting criminal aliens to federal authorities and establish an official database of illegal aliens serving time in the state’s prison system.
GALEO lobbies against voter ID, official English and local jails honoring ICE detainers. Executive Director Gonzalez is known to verbally attack female legislators when he does not approve of speeches or positions on illegal immigration. In 2011, Gonzalez posted this angry explanation of being asked to leave the Georgia Capitol when he lashed out at state Senator Renee Unterman for a speech she made on the floor of the senate.
In 2011, GALEO’s Gonzalez was escorted out of a Rome, Georgia luncheon that featured a panel discussion on immigration when he began yelling at diminutive state Rep Katie Dempsey as reported by the Rome News Tribune.
Gonzalez is a former lobbyist for the radical MALDEF corporation. GALEO founder, former state Senator Sam Zamarippa was a MALDEF board member. MALDEF founder Mario Obledo is best remembered for his promise that “California is going to become a Hispanic state and if anyone doesn’t like it they should leave. They ought to go back to Europe” on the Tom Likus radio show in 1998.
According to the left-leaning Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders.
Kemp ran on a platform that included his now famous “I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take ’em home myself,”
Kemp and a GALEO fundraiser – Advice from a liberal AJC political blogger
Republicans are learning that before he was elected governor, then Secretary of State Brian Kemp also gave GALEO a fundraising boost when he attended the annual GALEO Power Breakfast fundraiser in 2015.
On GALEO, the liberal AJC political blogger informed readers today that the Republicans will need to court the illegal alien lobby group as a necessary first step to “court Hispanic votes in the future” which ignores thirty years of election results since the Republican immigration amnesty of 1986.
All this creates a simple question: Does appointee John King agree with the GALEO agenda? He is due to be sworn in in the next few weeks, somebody should ask.

Absolute Dysfunction and Eggs!
Let’s see if we can figure this one out. Three hundred people, including at least three Americans, were murdered and five hundred injured, in separate Islamic attacks against two Christian churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) on Easter Sunday. If you didn’t know that, I recommend you should urgently reevaluate your news gathering habits. The phony Mueller business is over at last. Let it go!
The mainstream media, the propaganda arm of the Progressive Left, don’t want to share these ugly stories of Muslims murdering Christians with you lest you become Islamaphobic in the process. No, not al all! Islam is the religion of peace, isn’t it?
The MSM is motivated to flood the airways with Progressive drivel. For example, while Sri Lanka burns, Elizabeth, the phony Indian, Warren, in her feckless attempt to charge up her flagging presidential campaign, doesn’t even mention the deadly Islamic Easter attack in Sri Lanka, but wants to turn Americans into pot heads. She says “Pot” can be an economic boon to the poor, destitute denizens of neighborhoods that prosperity forgot; that vast throng of poor, uneducated, inept, unqualified unemployable creatures who have not shared in the spoils of Capitalism. Let’s give them money.
Pocahontas is not alone. The wannabe Mexican fool Señor “Beto” O’Rourke, thinks he was gifted with the looks, charm and erudition of JFK, while the former mayor of South Bend, Ind, Greg what’s his name, hyped by a media love fest, has gone off the rails himself defending Socialism as a panacea for America’s problems. AOC demonstrates, every time she opens her mouth, why the cost of her education was money misspent. These people are all the same, identical, leaderless and ignorant, like a carton of eggs.
I put a carton of a dozen fresh eggs in my fridge yesterday, added three eggs on top from the previous carton and, Lo!, fifteen white eggs that look exactly the same, like the Democrat contenders for President. They all sound the same, say the same things, each one out shouting the others to be heard about the same things…nothing! Can I refer to the Democrats as “eggs” now? Would it be understood? Will anyone understand “eggs” as a metaphor for sameness?
Not even a dozen intelligent eggs can possibly do what Donald Trump has done to Make America Great Again, but they all want the same things for Americans, open borders to allow immigration, including invading Muslims, free education, free healthcare, free housing, and monthly salaries whether they have a job or not. The Democrats promise of a socialist utopia remains as big a scam as Mueller’s investigation was. America is not a Socialist country!
This Democrat hysteria over demands for results already provided, on a two year investigation already concluded, is a direct reflection of the dysfunction that the leaderless and inept Democrat party has become. If they were real eggs, they should be scrambled by now. As a political observer, I’m not sure I any longer know how best to describe the Democrat party, as fragile eggs or as further evidence the inmates are running the institution.
The Democrats, now in tatters, are passing through the five stages of Trump: grief, anger, bargaining, depression and soon, we hope, acceptance. This is seen in the House of Representatives, in the context that the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is no longer captain of her ship, but is trying to tut-tut over a primary class of ignorant children, em, I mean eggs!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Swish! And as quick as that, the entire collusion picture turned on a dime and the Democrats are in panic mode looking for life boats to save themselves from their sinking ship. Of course, always keep in mind that with Democrats the inevitable never happens, the unexpected always does. So beware! The first inditements against the Obama-Clinton cabal has been launched against Obama’s White House counsel, Greg Craig. It appears he didn’t register as an agent for a foreign government, the Russian backed Ukrainian government, and lied about it! Oh, bother. It’s those silly little things that ‘elites’ fail to do that gets them into trouble? Isn’t it?
It started when Attorney General Barr was asked a direct question by a Democrat Senator on the Senate Intelligence Committee, publicly, that opened the door through which Conservatives are flowing to seize control of the fallacious collusion farce recently concluded by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. The Senate Democrats tried to force AG Barr to admit that he, Barr, at Trumps insistence, forced Mueller to end the Trump-Russia investigation prematurely before Mueller could find the certain evidence of Trumps collusion. No! Barr said that he and Mueller agreed that nothing was found that showed Trump or any of his associates, colluded with the Ruskies but, that many other questions on procedural issues concerning the FISA Warrants by the FBI, had to be investigated.
The senator then asked: “Do you mean there was spying going on?” Barr: “Yes, I believe spying (on Trumps campaign) did occur and it’s a big deal.” Barr correctly denied the agent corps of the FBI was involved, only the embedded Deep State intellectual elites who launched their treasonous Coup against Trump to save the Obama/Clinton empire and themselves, because Clinton didn’t win. Not the answer they Left was looking for, or their media collaborators either.
Immediately, an outraged Chuckie Schumer, in an attempt to stem the bleeding, demanded that Barr retract that damning statement at once, as a mere ‘conspiracy theory’ rumor. There’s the pot calling the kettle black! It’s too late! I suspect Barr had already set in motion the round up of the Obama-Clinton’s cattle herd of deep state criminals, starting with Obama’s White House Counsel Greg Craig. Then came Julien Assange, GRU Spy handler. The collapse coming!
At the same time the clueless Chair of the House Finance Committee, the elderly Democrat auntie Maxine Waters, always ready at a moment to be odd, thinking she exercised some superiority after crossing swords with Treasury Secty. Steve Mnuchin the day before, chose this scene to pose a question directly to several subpoenaed Wall Street bank CEO’s, that revealed her complete incompetence and lack of preparation, by asking them just what they were going to do to help alleviate the high and growing costs of college loans.Well, Nothing, because….!
Their answers were simple: they got out of the student loan business ten years and more ago, student loans being assumed by Obama’s government. The silence was deafening and immediately turned her committee into a Midway minstrel show showing the lowest depth of justifiable silliness to which a Democrat House committee can descend when led by an incompetent. While we may weep with joy at confirmation of their well earned reputations as stupid fools, let’s not take our eyes of those other three noisy Nimrods of intellectual acumen, Adam Schiff, Chairmen of the House Intelligence committee, Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the Judiciary committee, and not to be left out, Elijah Cummings of the Oversight committee.
The curtain is coming down but we cannot be complacent. Trump will not forget and we shouldn’t either. His end goal will be to bring down and totally destroy, Barak Obama. Bet on it!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Today’s news is full of the problem that is at the Southern border of the United States. A
large group of several thousand would be migrants have walked across El Salvador, Guatemala
and Honduras through Mexico to reach the United States.
They claim to be seeking asylum from their home countries. There are people from all ages and
genders in the so called Caravan.
The disturbing factor is that many known criminals and young men only looking for work make
up the group. Another confusing issue is that they come in a belligerent manner waving their
home country’s flag. They have broken through the borders between their homes and the United
States in a violent manner. They have had many conflicts such as throwing rocks and bottles at
the Mexican police, who are trying to control them and turn them back.
So far, some have accepted asylum in Mexico, but most have refused, preferring to take their
chances at the Southern border and the dream of America.
Most will not qualify for asylum and many will go about applying for it incorrectly.
A large crowd of people trying to rush the border, while throwing rocks at the
Border Patrol had to be controlled with non-lethal tear gas over the weekend.
Of course, the media and the Hollywood bleeding hearts went berserk with outrage at the action.
The fact that the same tear gas was used during the Obama administration on a regular basis must have escaped their notice, or it was just that both groups were happy to give him a pass on anything he did.
America has always been the land of freedom and prosperity and immigration is not a new issue
for the country.
Exactly how many people can the country absorb without straining the resources available and
also not jeopardize wages for the worker. As pundits on CNN and MSNBC declare that we are a
big place and we have plenty to share, how much is the actual cost?
In an article by FAIR, Federation for American Immigration Reform, the annual cost to an
American taxpayer per illegal alien family member is $ 8,075.00. Jointly for all taxpayers, a total
of $ 115,894,597,664.00.
Has any taxpayer been asked specifically if they are willing to bear this cost? Has it been put on
the ballot for a vote in any election?
Would the Hollywood liberals like Alyssa Milano, who seems so offended by the border
activities, like to write a check for this amount for however many families they would like to
sponsor to the government as extra tax payments? Anne Hathaway is reportedly “sick” that her
country is gassing children.
As I discussed on today’s ALL STAR PANEL WITH BPK, people of Hollywood (may I call
them “people,”) could sign up for a certain number of immigrants. They could promise to let
them live in their home, to watch over them so they don’t run afoul of the law, give them
healthcare, education, food and all expenses that are occurred in the business of living. As a two
for one, these same Hollywood folks and even professional athletes could take the same number of homeless people and give them the same love and care that they are going to provide to immigrant families.
They could all live together as one big happy family.
However, since the people in Hollywood only use their mouth, they rarely put their money where
the hole under their nose is located, I suppose that is only a pipe dream. (With a shout out to
Sandra Bullock and Taylor Swift among a few others who do donate money for disasters.)
Immigration issues are not a new problem. How it is handled recently is the reason that there is
In 1892 Ellis Island in New York welcomed the first immigrants to the United States. A young
girl and her two brothers were the first to be processed into America on New Year’s Day.
The normal process that those who wanted to stay in the United States were subject to medical
exams for any illnesses or mental disorders. Anyone who was ill or likely to become a ward of
the state was turned back to their home country.
Immigrants were required to have at least $ 18.00 on their person in order to be admitted.
In the 1920s, things began to change as a series of laws limited the amount of immigrants that
could come to the United States.
By 1925, the responsibility for those who wanted to apply for admission into the US was shifted
to the US consulates in the foreign countries where the people lived.
Both the island processing method and the US Consulates abroad seem like a much better system
than those who are trying to enter the country illegally.
It doesn’t seem as necessary to make new immigration laws as it does to simply enforce the ones
on the books, however, there are a few loopholes that may need to be closed.
Ultimately, the US cannot accept everyone and take care of them, even if they are working.
It is imperative to limit the flow of humanity to a manageable number for financial reasons as
well as health reasons. Better vetting and control of who enters the country is imperative,
especially since the drug cartels and those who wish to do harm to the citizenry are often
included in the masses who breech the border and our laws.
We have enough of our own homegrown criminals here, we have no need to import any more.
Congress would be better served working toward the goal of repairing and reinventing the
immigration process than playing politics along with the blame game. As it is they are getting
nothing done at all.
The Democrat party has made winning elections an art form. Their speculation knows no bounds,
abides by no rules, except their own, and would not consider for a second, capitulating to the
inevitable until all votes are counted including those from unknown precincts that suddenly were
found in the trunk of a car or stacked on the shelves in someone’s office. They were never
reported loss but, now they are found. Imagine than, an amazing grace.
In Georgia, the extreme radical left wing socialist Democrat candidate for governor, Stacy
Abrams, came up short in the general election vote count, even for the number required for a
run-off so, in typical Democrat fashion her minions filed a law suit in the US District Court for
Middle Georgia, to allow absentee ballots from Dougherty County to be counted, so long as they
were postmarked on or before Nov. 6 or received by last Friday.
Well, guess what Federal Judge is charged with supervising the suit. It’s Leslie Abrams, an
Obama appointee and, Oh, Joy! the sister of candidate Stacy Abrams. Should one anticipate a
possible conflict of interest here? Will she be asked to recuse herself? Democrats, like Chuckie
Schumer will insist, with a straight face, that Leslie Abrams is an honest duly appointed Judge
whose integrity can not be questioned, etc. & etc.
Democrats, through shenanigans like Abrams is pulling, simply will not concede an election until
the Supreme Court of the US makes a final decision. In the meantime, a trove, of Democrat-leaning
provisional ballots, 1,811 to be exact, were discovered in Fulton County Georgia, that, if
believed, could yield results in her favor even though the “trove” is filled with duplicates, wrong
names and wrong signatures. 42% of those provisional ballots were in fact rejected.
Florida is another case in point. Three counties there, Dade, Broward and Palm Beach, are
officially deemed corrupt almost beyond repair. Post-election Florida faces a statewide recount
for both the Governor and Senate races. Protesters have assembled at the core site of the
storm raging over both races and that is the long suspected of election criminality, Broward
Election Supervisor, Brenda Snipes.
Snipes held a Press Conference and didn’t show up. Brenda Snipes, is a wicked elderly lady
with straight white hair, and dedicated to socialisms advancement. She reminds me of an
African version of Disney’s witch in ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.’ In any event, she has
a history of losing, misplacing or burning ballots if the outcome doesn’t agree with the needs of
the Democrat Party. Snipes’s lawyers was asked “how the voters of Florida can expect to have
any confidence in the integrity of the election process in Broward County when Brenda Snipes
“was found by a judge to have destroyed ballots in the race between Tin Canova and Debbie
A follow up question was how to explain it was ‘transparent’ to have a woman who’s been found
to have destroyed ballots overseeing an election? Those ballots, it was claimed, had been
counted and weren’t relevant to this election. Brenda Snipes has a well documented history of
destroying ballots and breaking the law, yet, she remains in her sincere, rising from the swamp
muck every two or four years to ensure her party’s victory.
A reckoning has to come. Republicans are starting to fight back, for what little good it might do if
the system is rigged, but it’s a start. The fascists are on the move. What’s next, more violence?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (12Nov18)

Social Engineering America to Death
Social engineering schemes, such as the Progressive followers of Saul Alinsky (Democrats), keep applying by following his Rules for Radicals, constitute the deliberate and illegal attempt to change our society and our culture to meet societal norms that lay far outside the guidelines of the US Constitution. Indeed, Progressives firmly believe America is the center of all the world’s evils and the US Constitution that supports it, stands as an impediment to world social justice and must be done away with, one amendment at at time, if necessary.
Case in point, the constant progressive attack against the 2nd Amendment. It is the one defense Americans possess that can prevent the radical takeover of America. We also see a vigorous attack on our 1st Amendment rights coming from several fronts. Look at the first line”: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That’s it, yet Progressives scream government(s) cannot recognize prayer, posting of the Ten Commandments or support Christian based activities because of some non-existent “Separation of Church and State” nonsense that’s not in there. As often as I have read that sentence, I’m still unable to lay my finger on any word that prohibits government from supporting or participating in any religious activity, not monetarily of course, but morally. Yet the “Left” persists on insisting that the ‘separation of church and state’ is a point of law not to be violated and we believe ‘em!
What the 1st amendment does state, unequivocally, is that Government shall not establish an official state church, a reaction to the religious turmoil that plunged Great Britain into bloody conflict for generations. That will become a mute point of course, when adherents of Islam start rising as elected government officials to the point they will, by their sheer numbers alone, out number and out vote non-muslims (infidels) and replace the Constitution with Sharia Law.
Free speech is also under attack, not so subtly, by the media, Facebook and Twitter crowd simply by not posting conservative opinions. The radical take over of many colleges and universities forbid Conservative speakers on campus. They will assault conservative students dispensing Trump hats, etc., and are encouraged by school administrations to do so. The Radicals have so scared college administrations with the threat of violence, most officials, if not already radicalized, dare not complain. If Conservatives assemble peaceably, they are attacked by radical goon squads (antifa’s, BLM) and even made to look like the conservatives started it.
Presently, Congressional Democrats adamantly refuse to protect our borders from invasion by the hoards of peons from Mexico and Central America, schooled to ask for ‘asylum.’ Suborning this invasion is to support social engineering designed to increase Progressives voter rolls. Now, the southern invasion is overwhelming the CBP’s efforts to stem the tide, another Alinsky rule, they will soon overwhelm our financial ability to support ‘em as well. Asylum requests should only be heard at US Embassy’s and Consulates, not at borders.
Why do we need to accept them? Because Democrats insisted “it was the thing to do, it’s who we are,” drawing on our sympathies as Americans who are always ready to help the poor and destitute, while they gun down, rape and murder our own citizens. That day, I believe, is soon coming to an end. We cannot afford to support other countries citizens. That doesn’t matter to Democrats. They’ll simply say take the funds from Defense and, you’re racist if you don’t! Trump will not do that, but he’ll take the funds from those countries we are already supporting.
Our banking laws are a hinderance to the control of unwanted foreign populations demanding to stay here because they’re already here. All foreigners here should be required to establish American banking accounts. No money sent abroad without an American bank account.
For example, If an American retires to Mexico, the retiree(s) cannot continue to maintain their American bank accounts. They must open a Mexican bank account. Why don’t we do that? Why can we not forbid the telegraphing of cash money orders via Wester Union to foreign countries, without going first through American Banks? Control the money and you control the population.
If we stopped financial support to them when they do get here, the monetary draw to come would cease. Those already here illegally, should be advised they have three months to sell their property, keep the receipts and return to their home countries or, the American government will do it for them and keep the proceeds to help defray the cost of their evacuation.
Finally, I want to know by what measure illegals are entitled to my Social Security money, my medicare benefits and our tax money for their education and housing. That was a Progressive Democrat idea, because “we’re good people and mean well.” Turn off the money spigot at all levels and the invasion(s) will cease. We owe these people nothing!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Well, I suppose it’s safe to scratch off Buzz-Feed as a reliable source of insider information on the Washington DC political scene. They now rank right up there with CNN, MSNBC, et. al.: as organs of fake news dedicated to only one thing, saving the Democrat party and its socialist agenda by eliminating the killer virus that is choking them to death, Donald Trump.
I’m surprised Mueller himself immediately debunked the Buzz-Feed story about the President directing his lawyer, Michael Cohen, to like to Congress and I suspect a rat here somewhere. That caught the Left-wing media totally by surprise. They changed their talking points to “what ifs” and rephrased their words to fool us, they think, into believing there was still a chance to find some tawdry evidence that could finally impeach Trump. That’s the face of desperation.
The demented talking heads of the left wing-media will, at any hint of a possible scandal, breath life into it in the vain hopes that they will expose some measure of truth that will grow into a scandal and end Trump’s presidency. Buzz-Feed tried to fulfill that mission and has now elevated itself to the highest level of distrust. By breathlessly publishing this false story without fact checking has rendered it as untrustworthy. For any group that pretends to be an objective reporting organ, to not even bother considering the “Red Flags” that identify fake news, seals the deal on their irrelevance. Now, anything they publish will be suspect!
The media, morally and ethically challenged, considers us to be politically irrelevant. They don’t really care what they say just so long as some of it sticks, somewhere. If they all say the same thing, then it must be true! Indeed, they believe their own copy and have thrown all standards aside in their singular, unquenchable desire to bring down Donald Trump.
Inherent in this daily assault of fake news is the primary goal of the Democrat-Socialists, the neutering of America’s heritage, culture and traditions for the sake of “diversity, multiculturalism and, truth be told, the elimination of all vestiges of influence of the European white male.
Consider the wall President Trump wants to build on our southern border. Under Obama, all the Democrats demanded it. Videos of their earnest desire to protect America from invasion by illegals are all over the internet. So what does the media do, ignore the historical past, focuses on the immediate future and whines about poor illegals and unemployed non-essential federal government employees, without a cent for the protective barrier we all wanted, once.
The media is all in on tooting the Democrats horn on policies that ignore Americas Vet’s, it’s tax payers, it producers and citizens of long standing, all for the sake of spending vast amounts of treasure to sustain people who don’t belong here simply because their presence gives them a humanitarian claim to feast at the trough of public assistance. When will the money run out?
The anti-Trump media, keen to be first to bring down the President, seems destructively eager to seize upon any and every rumor and regurgitate it out as factual truths. This time Buzz-Feed and the regurgitator’s got their fingers caught in a trap. Even Chris Wallace, on today’s Sunday Fox news, brought up the issue with Vice President Pence, apparently to achieve a “gotcha” comment. If Mueller already debunked the Buzz-Feed report, why didn’t the VP just say, “Why are we even talking about that issue Chris? It’s dead!” Well, its simply to keep it alive through one more news cycle. Chris Wallace, to be fair and balanced, just regurgitated leftist nonsense.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Clearly, daily White House press corps gatherings are losing their allure and their effectiveness.
Thrill seekers disguised as reporters or worse, journalists, primarily of the Liberal-Progressive
bent, are intent on making themselves the news by challenging the press secretary’s every
comment including her weight, size, candor and/or her intelligence, not to mention the President
himself, not by asking questions pertinent to current issues but by taking irresolute stands
contrary to the facts and demanding answers even when told to sit down and shut up. Their
obnoxiousness is mind numbing and the whole business should be abandoned.
The White House controls the news briefings not Jim Acosta or the other Liberal creatures
dedicated to the Presidents destruction. These people are functionally illiterate, solely dedicated
to challenging the administration at any and every level of the daily news cycle, intent only on
becoming famous themselves.
Perhaps this daily event should no longer be televised, just audio recorded. Perhaps a bulletin
board could be erected on the street where daily items of interest can be posted by a WH press
staffer. Many even a chap with a bell, at noon, crying “hear ye, hear ye,” I don’t know, but this
crazed media frenzy has gotten out of hand and needs to be returned to civility or abandoned.
So, what is the news? Thousands of immigrants in a caravan, declaring their intentions to seek
amnesty in America, do constitute an invasion. The Liberal press spends their face time on such
trivial matters challenging the president directly as to his definition of what’s an invasion. I know
what one looks like, don’t you? While America faces challenges from winning Democrats,
determined to make America Socialist, the silence that falls from the normally boastful democrat
side is ignored. What do they know that we don’t? Something big is going on out there and it’s
being ignored for who defines what constitutes illegal immigrants.
These WH press people, in the face of more news of mass shootings by one deranged person,
will challenge gun laws as ineffective while ignoring the deranged person. They don’t want a
solution, they want an issue to thrash the president with and gun laws don’t do it anymore.
Other interesting happenings all but ignored by the WH press corps was AG Jeff Sessions
departure, his temporary replacement, who is to be the new US Ambassador to the UN, who’s
the new WH lawyer? what’s the view on the potential inditement’s soon to flow against the multi-
level layers of Obama’s hangers-on still in government who have, and still are, actively engaged
against the government?
The post-election news cycle revealed, but isn’t discussed, the fact that every candidate
Trump stumped for won their election because the candidate threw in with a successful
president; and every candidate Obama stumped for, lost. Everyone! That should be newsworthy
. It might explain why the Democrats aren’t boasting as they usually do.
Speaking of which, Nancy Pelosi faces imminent danger. First, she entering a realm of extreme
dementia as her performance at press conferences demonstrate. Coherent thought, recall of
people, places and things turn into babble and she faces a hostile democrat cacuse of young
leftists determined to replace her before she sinks the little hope remaining for survival the
Democrats achieved in their retaking the house. The 2020 presidential re-election campaign has
commenced. The media failed in bringing Trump down in his first two years. What’s next”
Stayed tuned. Remember, freedom is the goal the constitution is the way. Go, get ‘em (8Nov18)
Sorry, but using Johnny Carson’s stage entry line as a metaphor in an essay may be a bit churlish but damn it, it fits. That cheap schmuck Barak Obama simply couldn’t stand it anymore and had to come clambering back onto the political stage like he was really wanted.
Trumps robust America, almost out of the starting gate, is more that any marxist should have to endure. Barak’s brand of economic and social Obamaism that we endured for eight long miserable years, produced nothing meaningful for American except to apologize for Americas needed role of world leadership, import Islam, throw open our borders to the worlds peasants (voters), destroy American culture and kill American production and freedom by high taxes and over regulation. In the end, all he created was a “Deep State” that is struggling for its very survival under Trumps incessant pounding. After all, the State must be preserved at all costs.
So here comes Barak, the slick tongued, greasy used car salesman and community organizer, trying to claim credit for Trumps instinctive economic triumphs. He no longer apologizes for Americans supposed failures, but denigrates Trumps robust economy as actually the result of his policies of onerous regulation and oppressive taxation. They would have come to full bloom if only he had had a few more months. He trashes Trumps foreign policy as dangerous and war-mongering but his own policies, leading from behind, proved more dangerous to a stable world.
Comparisons in leadership, which he promotes, cannot stand comparison.
So, as expected, Obama slithered out of his dark hole to protect his legacy. Yes, he has one but its a legacy of failure in social, economic, political and foreign policy. According to Obama’s calculations, Trumps robust economy, the low unemployment numbers, higher incomes and jobs for all, wasn’t really the product of that awful Donald Trump, but was an economy he had primed and ready to spring upon the world if he had had just one more term. Oh, really?
Obama still draws a crowd of college students, but they don’t scream and holler like Trumps crowds do. His admirers cling to the hope that only Obama’s brand of Socialism can possibly succeed for America. Yet, the democrat party is morphing right before our eyes into something potentially dangerous if Conservatives don’t take to the stage as well to kill the dragon.
The Democrat Party is caught between a rock and a hard spot because the old socialists that made up the party for decades and have run the party into the ground, still retain leadership despite the dementia we see creeping in. They are now being challenged by an even more radical left-wing brand of Marxists in the guise of ignorant young millennials heartened by Bernie Sanders near success at achieving the 2016 Democrat nomination. They bought into the ‘entitlement for all’ notions, are not taking kindly to the current elderly democrat leadership.
Their disappointment was when it was revealed that Sanders was beaten out of the nomination by the skullduggery of Hillary’s Democrat machine, and that will not be forgiven. The new Marxist even have their own “shock troops” in the guise of Antifa’s and BLM’s for street deployment. And their politicians, Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, et. al, are there to stir the pudding of what was once gentlemanly political debate.
America faces a crisis. The Marxists can still count enough voters, even dead ones, to change the character of local politics if conservatives don’t stay prepared. We must get out and vote. We cannot drop our guard or our America can be snatched back into the jaws of growing tyranny. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get’m! (09Sep18)
Continuation of DEAD CHILD YES, BUT MEDIA IS TO BLAME.
By: Candace Hardin
The plot thickens in the New Mexico compound for training school shooters as the
prosecutors from Taos County question the malnourished, mistreated children being trained to
carry out school shootings.
It seems that the leaders of this group were out to “confront corrupt groups or individuals” and
“reveal the truth” to those they chose to exact punishment.
The group was targeting Grady Memorial Hospital in Atlanta Georgia as one jihad they wanted
to fulfill. They were going to “shoot or otherwise attack” anyone who failed to accept their
message at the hospital. One of the children reported that this target was chosen for the poor
treatment she and her mother had received there.
Grady Memorial is one of the best trauma hospitals in the region, if one is in an accident or badly
burnt. It is also a place where poor, indigent or those without healthcare will be treated with
However, the plot thickens as the initial child abuse charges against all five adult defendants had
to be dismissed as District Attorney, Donald Gallegos of Taos, failed to follow normal court
procedures and schedule a preliminary hearing for the defendants. The Judge chastised the DA,
but really this is too much of a coincidence.
Why would a district attorney “forget” to follow everyday procedures that a second year law
student could probably handle with ease?
Could it be that because the leader, Siraj Wahhaj Sr, Brooklyn Iman and father of the leader of
the compound, is so well connected to the previous administration, Obama and Hillary Clinton?
Then there is the disturbing question.
Why are there still no protests at all in the area for gun control, anti – NRA, child abuse or any of
the normal upsets to anything remotely connected with a gun?
Could it be that those who pay for violent rallies are not buying a round this time?
Siraj Wahhaj Sr, was connected to school shooter Nicolas Cruz of the February 14 th School
shooting in Parkland, Florida.
Repeat again – the compound operated by his son was training school shooters.
The situation begins to smell just a little worse by one event that happened at Brett Kavenaugh’s
first day in hearings for the Supreme Court.
How can that be connected to the New Mexico compound, one might ask? Read on and see.
Of course, it was a partisan circus from the first moment, a Chuck Schumer scheduled monkey
wrench display, along with vulgar, loud protestors.
One of which screamed that she had to leave Missouri in order to get an abortion. (There are five
Planned Parenthood locations in Missouri. Surely one could contain her rudeness long enough to
perform the procedure.)
However, the big “story” was that Kavenaugh allegedly refused to shake the hand of Parkland
parent, Fred Guttenburg, parent of slain daughter and student, Jaime Guttenburg claims to have been introduced by Senator Feinstein, and was sure that Judge Kavenaugh “just didn’t want to deal with the reality of gun violence.”
Uh huh, you have a dead child, and all sincere condolences are extended, but why is (a previously respected before Trump nominated him for the Supreme Court) judge all of a sudden a “risk of public safety?” (According to a tweet issued by Guttenburg).
Yet a compound training children to be school shooters is not something to be worried about
even though it has a direct connection to the shooter who killed your daughter?
Wouldn’t it be more productive to be in that New Mexico district attorney’s office, or in front of
the judge who barely slapped the defendants initially?
Wouldn’t a sincere person be demanding to know why these people connected to the shooting
death of your child and sixteen others are basically getting off on technicalities?
When one starts to connect the dots, the picture looks and smells more like a partisan paid dead
Trumps Fearful Hold on Democrats
Some rabid Trump haters may be realizing the fake Russian collusion business is going nowhere. Not all of course, but painful as it might be, some know it’s time to pivot. Their guide still lies with Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicles recommendation to overwhelm the system(s) to the breaking point such as we are seeing at our southern border. So look for Illegal emigration to rise as the next hot topic along side health care, for the poor & indigent including the disease ridden illegals now infecting America with illness thought to be long gone.
Congress is still burdened with its dimwitted politicos like Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, auntie Maxine, et. al., in the Democrat leadership. They are still blowing smoke about the failure of the Special Counsels to indite Donald Trump. Could the Mueller report still be fertile ground to be plowed for new accusations? Nope, ain’t gonna happen! They’ve got to look elsewhere and believe me, they will. Unlike Republicans, they never give up or roll over to the inevitable truth.
The Mueller Report did us a good turn. It revealed, regardless of the MSM’s ignoring it almost totally, that there was indeed criminal collusion, a conspiracy to commit treason. By lying to Congress, lying to Federal investigators and obstruction of justice rising to the level of Treason, a hanging offense, the conspirators created false evidence and narratives of the supposed criminality by Donald Trump. They provided false testimony to obtain warrants (FISA), to stop the Trump threat and protect the real criminality of their kindred spirits, Obama, the Clintons and the elite bureaucrats of the Federal Intelligence and law enforcement community.
When search warrants are requested by investigators, including FISA Warrants, our 4th amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizures “requires” that truthful probable cause, supported by evidence and oath or affirmation, must exist. That oath, given to a judge or magistrate, if knowingly false, constitutes a crime. But Judges can’t always know that and, In Trump’s case FBI’s oaths were believed because they were the FBI, armed with the highest of reputations. For Trump, the FBI investigation fell under the ruse of a counter-Intelligence inquiry. That does not negate the crimes of false swearing they conspired to commit in obtaining their warrants. There can be no possible other course of action here. If Mueller was honest and truthful, then the FBI and their coconspirators in the DoJ, lied to him as well.
What Mueller’s report has done was to destroy Americans faith in our system of federal justice, another point in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to take down existing governments. It revealed that a wicked self-serving elite bureaucracy, a “Deep State,” was no longer just a rumor of the tinfoil hat crowd, but is in fact a very real danger to our American representative form of government. Mueller revealed clearly to what depths the Deep State elites will go to protect their elite inner kingdom. They are dedicated to protecting their own because if they don’t they could all hang. The Progressives will (almost) endure any pain, seek any measure of possible influence ore commit any crime, including murder, to stay in power. Watch for the rats to leave the sinking Progressive ship. Brennan has already started with hi “I didn’t know,” nonsense.
How far has the rot of judicial favoritism spread? How about to Obama’s Chicago where an unknown actor in a silly TV soap opera, Jussie Smollett, desperate for notoriety and following right on the heels of the Mueller report serve as an example? Our system of justice can no longer survive leftist favoritism in addressing crimes simply because “they meant well” or didn’t like the candidate(s). So, here’s the real headline: Attention Democrats, the Mueller report is complete and the results are in. “Donald Trump’s your daddy!”
Remember, freedoms the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s go get ‘em!
