Haste Makes Waste, Get The Facts

Opinion

Arriving at hasty conclusions, even ones you dreamed up yourself, had better have some facts
or everything falls apart. Adam Schiff’s much ballyhooed 300 page BS report out of his House
Intelligence Committee on the nefarious impeachable activities of President Trump, are not
supported by one single fact and apparently, even that wasn’t fact checked for accuracy.

One notable error being a phone number Schiff claimed proved collusion between Rudy
Giuliani, on Trumps behalf, and the White House Office of Management and Budget, chaired by
Mick Mulvaney. The offending number was actually the White House switch board. Oh my!

Schiff’s report claims the OMB played an integral role in the freeze on military aid to Ukraine,
but the evil mechanism of conspiracy, the dreaded switchboard, impeded his justice. I don’t
think so. Schiff can’t subpoena it and of course, his whole scenario has already been trashed.
But what are facts to Schiff and the Democrat party? They make up their own as they go along.

Sadly, for the Democrats, and reflective of Schiff’s incompetence, the call logs of OMB revealed
in fact that no one in that office spoke with Rudy Giuliani in the cited months of April and August.
Oops! But that’s that’s quite the opposite of what Schiff claims in his 300 page tome of quasi-
official nonsense. Haste makes waste.

What is far more troubling is Schiff’s secret subpoenas of fellow (Republican) House Intelligence
committee members and others, for their phone records. We’ll see where that falls out but it can
be a chargeable felony, except of course, when the offender is a weird Democrat Congressman.
This whole impeachment business is far more calculating than most of us give it credit for. It’s
stupid, but still calculating. The obvious driving force clearly is the pure hatred for Trump and us
deplorable’s who support him for having the audacity to defeat Obama’s shadow candidate
Hillary Clinton in 2016, a date that will live in infamy. The Democrat party truly despises the
Constitution and anyone who gets in their way regardless of what it says.Theirs is an insatiable
lust for power, total control, and the unbridled freedom to enrich themselves at the public trough,
tell Americans what to eat, drink, drive and to prepare for the end because of climate change.

While Trumps removal would be a welcome outcome for Democrats, and seeing the 2020
writing on the wall, their current objective is simply to attempt to smear him in the public eye,
erode his base support and drive others away from working with him. If they can’t tarnish
Trump’s image to prevent his re-election, their next goofy step will be to try to neutralize or
eliminate altogether, the Electoral College until a Democrat of their political persuasion can be
elected who will put an end to this obstructive Constitution nonsense.

By the way, Schiff’s secret collecting of committee members phone records reflects classic
“Stasi” and KGB trade craft. A subpoena for a criminal case should be issued after a warrant is
presented laying out the probable cause for wanting such information. With Schiff, being a
Congressman, this 4th amendment business probably does not apply.

Pelosi’s orchestrated two pronged attack using Dumb and Dumber, Schiff and Nadler, as her
spear points, is shameless, fact free, political theater, something Democrats were once good at.
Today, the word is out. We all know it's a sham lie, but as the corrupt and disgraced once former
Senate majority leader Harry Reid would put it, “as long as it works, so what?”
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Short Takes – America’s Brown Shirts?

Opinion

America’s Brown Shirts?

Does Maxine Waters represent her version of America’s Brown Shirts? The rash of organized deranged fascists screaming in the faces of Trump supporters, Republican officials and anyone with a MAGA hat, is emblematic of Ernst Roehm’s Brown Shirts of a by gone era in a country far, far away. Roehm directed violence against anyone who did not render the salute of the National Socialist Party, who tried a to enter a Jewish owned shop of refused to take a SD handout on the glories of National Socialism. To not learn from history is to repeat it.

What is the difference between Maxine Waters directing her followers to harass Trump conservatives in cafes, restaurants and public places, and Ernst Roehm’s directing his Brown Shirts to destroy Jewish property as was done on “Crystal-night?”

The fact that Maxine Waters, an elderly, ugly black woman is doing her best imitation of Ernst Roehm, a fat ugly white Jew hater, is proof enough that for America’s Progressives any nut job can become a despotic leader of anarchists when he/she is determined to overturn, by threats, violence and intimidation, the will of the people.

This is not good and will not turn out well for them. Even Chuckie Schumer realizes the dangers of an uncivil, dissolving society divided by the policies of Barack Obama, into warring camps of have’s and have not’s, identity groups and base tribalism to enforce their demands.

Why is Maxine Waters screeds at democrat election rallies not considered “Hate Speech?” Why is it not a hate crime for a restaurant owner (Red Hen) to refuse service to customers on her “moral grounds” because they are Republicans not equal to a pastry baker refusing to bake a wedding cake for sodomites on his moral grounds and getting hammered for it?  

Democrats, “Hypocrisy is thy name.” How does a failing political party that wants to remain valid in the voters eyes, rid itself of the nut cases that present a clear and present danger to their longevity? Ernst Roehm was never laughed at Indeed, he organized battalions of well controlled street thugs into fascists and, to instill pride, uniformed them in the party’s colors, to show the public who they were, and that they intended to control the streets of German cities.

The legions of anarchists Maxine Waters is encouraging to take to the streets do not goose-step in nifty uniforms singing the Horst Wessel song, they wear “hoodies” and masks to hide their faces from police surveillance filming while they scream and holler trying to drown out the free speech of Conservatives, bash conservative speakers and their followers and destroy private property in their feigned rage and challenge the police sent out to confront them.

They are no longer afraid of the civil authority of municipalities, counties or states. We’ve entered into another era of common place violence, not because it hasn’t happened before, but because there are now so many more of them, and us, that can’t be ignored.

Berkeley, Calif., Portland, Ore., and Baltimore, Md. are three examples of cities under siege by the threats of intimidation by fascist “hoodies,” who magically appear on the streets to ‘protest’ the presence of any conservative speaker, event, parade or rally, that doesn’t comport to their demands for inclusivity, multiculturalism and diversity, all the society divisive tenants of Marxism. America is arming up. If you haven’t you should, and take lessons on how to defend yourselves. You, me, all of us, must be prepared for the coming storm, but in the end, we will win.

Short Takes – American’s, Starved For Decency

American’s, Starved For Decency

“Live and let live” was once a cherished but un-codified phrase that kept us from punching each other’s headlights out over minor disagreements on any number of subjects. It has been swept away by the political philosophy of socialism that demands complete control over everything, the rule of laws be damned. At the local level it’s best seen in the rising incidents of road rage.

Democrats calling for “resistance” have shed all pretense of civility to “live and let live.” It’s to be their way or no way. A year and a half out, they still haven’t grasped the truth that they are no longer in charge of the federal government. All that’s left for them is to yap and snip at the heels of the real leader we now have in Donald Trump, and his supporters.

The politeness scenario that once guided our debates, has been swept away by hysterical

Democrats desperate to retain any claim on power. Three successive national elections have left Democrats stunned. Searching for other methods of maintaining relevance and with no more arguments left in their playbook except “Stop Trump”, they have turned to their chapter on anarchy and are actively encouraging attacks on conservatives through intimidating, in your face name calling, screaming spittle frothing epitaphs and character defamation screeds. When democrats wielded power they used the Dept. of Justice and the now corrupted FBI, not to mention the IRS, to eliminate their opponents. For Democrats, civility is gone, lies are commonplace and to ignore all ideas other than their Marxist scribblings, is expected.  

That simple phrase, “live and let live,” encompassed principles that, along with an understanding of the ten commandments, guided us as citizens to live together in peace and harmony and accept the differences. We went together to the 4th of July parades and picnics, the evening fireworks, Veterans day events and all the pro-American programs that reflected American’s pride, and we did it without fighting one another. Americans are starved for decency.

The Socialist theories of economic control, that has taken over the whole of the Democrat Party, and has infiltrated GOP ranks, might explain why Republicans have long been accused of not fighting back, but going along to get along with the Socialists to the point of even agreeing that what the Democrat-Socialist party wanted was really good for America.

Our streets are on fire and it’s the Democrats doing. Alarmed American’s quickly organized under the Tea Party banner to figure out a way to do what the Republican weren’t doing, fighting back. But, Tea Party members didn’t run around attacking Democrats, destroying property or stealing campaign signs from supporters yards, or defacing bumper stickers.

When Republicans controlled only the House of Representatives, and the Tea Party was clearly considered a dissident group in danger of actually damaging the “Deep State”, liberal politicians, MSM journalists and “Moderate Republicans,” saw no need to be civil toward the Tea Partiers and the stage was set for where we are today, both parties in disarray, as they should be, and little can be done to remedy it. Nothing heals faster than open wounds, properly treated.

“Demands for civility almost always come from people who lost their own right to the respect they expect. The last resort of someone who has run out of good moral arguments is lies, innuendoes, falsehoods and now, resistance. Democrats have lost the stage on which to act out their identity as politicians and have turned into the anarchists they now are.

Short Takes – Is a Cataclysm Coming?

Opinion

The answer depends on what drives ones personal social, religious or economic opinion. One media source warns of a coming war and asks should we be concerned? We’re already at war.

Other sources warns that the government is poised to seize all our bank savings and we should convert to gold, while yet other sources warn of Biblical prophecy coming together as a precursor to Armageddon and the second coming of Jesus. Oh, my! So much to worry about.

Currently newsworthy is the Democrats hysteria over Trumps cancellation of talks with Kim Jong Un. The media screams Donald Trump “was forced to cancel” talks with Kim Jong Un and by extension, Trump, failing to follow the norms used by previous Presidents when dealing with North Korea (capitulation), then all is lost, Trump is incompetent and war is inevitable.

Well, no, Trump wasn’t ‘forced’ to cancel anything. Initially, Trump seized an opportunity to pin Kim against the wall when he accepted Kim’s suggestion for a”summit.” It will only be a surprise to politicians who have no clue about how a poverty stricken, brutal Stalinist regime that is North Korea, operates when squeezing the “West” for sustenance. They have followed their same format for sixty years and Trump called them on it. Even now, Kim is begging for a resumption of the talks. Kim is caught between a rock and a hard spot.

Unknown to the Democrats is Trump’s mastery of the art of persuasion. Trump is not a politician, he’s a doer and whether one negotiates with despots like Kim or for bank loans, the tactics are still the same and most American politicians simply do not have the skills to face off with the likes of a Kim Jung Un, Mano a Mano. Trump has seen ‘em all and he’s holds a strong hand in a game of which he changed the rules. The Joker card is absent from the deck.

Kim’s ploy was as predictable as the coming of elm blight in January.  Arrange the meeting, claim actions by the other side are provocative and threaten to withdraw if they are not stopped, redo the effort and finally, alert the North Korean military on the DMZ to battle stations, fire off a few artillery rounds into the Sea of Japan and wait for the Western politicians to capitulate as they have always done. Trump doesn’t play the game that way as we have seen.

I like Nancy Pelosi. She stands as a stalwart exponent for the advancement of conservatism. With her comments on Trump’s foreign policy skills, vis a vis Kim Jung Un, nobody could be better positioned then Nancy Pelosi to drag the Democrat party further into the dim morass of really stupid ideas then she.  I ask, what is “a giggle fit?” Months ago Pelosi said: “we must do everything we can to engage North Korea……” then when Donald Trump made it happen, she turns the Democrat party into obstructionists. Actually obstructionism is a bit harsh, because the Democrats are all but powerless, so they are only left mocking the President’s efforts. Where is that “Blue Wave” and when is it going to get here?

How could cancelling the 12 June media event possibly be a “setback” for US foreign policy when the predicable reaction of Kim Jung Un, comes to fruition? Kim will come back to the table. He has to. He has no other choice. The economic squeeze is on and even his back channel sources will be challenged and stopped. Follow the money. Too, he has to look over his shoulder wondering what China’s demands are if he doesn’t already know. China doesn’t need Kim. It just needs to keep the US Army away from its North Korean border. Talk about the rock and the hard spot.

“And, Here Comes Baraky! “

Opinion

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)

Short Takes – The Derangement of Compassionate Fascists

Opinion

The Derangement of Compassionate Fascists

As a conservative, I could not be more grateful or pleased for their contributions to Trump’s continued Presidency and the assurance of his re-election in 2020, then that provided by the continuing Mueller circus, the daily visual presence of Hillary Clinton and the deranged mutterings of California’s premier female nut job, after Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, that brilliant light of intellectual acumen, faultless sense of timing and thrilling rhetorical skills. Thank you, thank you, thank you all!  Did I fail to mention the unravelling exposure of the DoJ and FBI’s biased leadership as bonafide anti-Trump Progressives who actually (not figuratively) engaged in an insiders coup attempt against the Trump administration? That’s a criminal act.

If one thinks they can succeed in staging a coup against a legally elected administration, then the decision must be made to go all in and make a clean kill or face the hangman. Gibbets have been filled with failed coup attempters. In some places, it’s firing squads. Whatever is the punishment, it must be carried out ruthlessly and quickly or no message of its futility is left to stem those deranged few who would still contemplate their place in history.

The entire Democrat-Socialist party has entered the dark forbidding realm of conscious hysteria as evidenced by the uncivilized reactions of the lefts politicians and voters toward conservatives like Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her Red Hen Restaurant experience. Lest we forget, it started last year with the attempted murders by a deranged democrat at the Republican congressional baseball practice shooting at Congressmen. The Left’s reactions to Trumps wielding the powers of the executive by trying to seal the border and stem the flow on Illegals across our borders is driving them bonkers. So is Trumps tariffs, his North Korean exercise in diplomacy and Trumps growing American economy.

“Obsession over a tree ignores the forest.”  Obsessing over a few staged photos of weeping little children allegedly being separated from their gate crashing parents, or coyotes, or sex trade traffickers, or whatever, ignores the real problem, that we’re being invaded. To stop the flow does not require more police or soldiers on the border, simply deny invaders the monetary support they need to survive here. Eliminate the welfare we spend supporting them.

The Left seems convinced that the righteousness of their lunatic cause justifies their attacks as their absolute right to correct a gross error made by America’s “deplorable’s,” we who didn’t see the true value of a Hillary Clinton presidency and who simply don’t recognize the dangers  inherent in Constitutional representative government over their version of compassionate fascism.

Their ignorance of is revealed when they characterize Conservatives as Nazi’s when they are are describing themselves. Their lack of education on history is apparent when they don’t know or recognize the difference between fascist National Socialism, which is what Democrats want, and Constitutional Representative government, which is what we now have and will continue to have, unless we can’t beat back the continued assault on our better senses.

Why, for example, does Mueller’s Colonoscopy probe still continue when the unfolding Congressional probe into the FBI has undercut its legitimacy? No prosecutor could possibly take Mueller’s tainted fake evidence to a Grand Jury and expect to gain an indictment. No, no. It simply won’t do!  End the charade and stop the Mueller fiasco. Lets make America Great Again,

Short Takes – Does Hollywood Matter Any More?

Opinion

Apparently, the Tony award’s were on last night. I didn’t know. It was in todays news when it was revealed once again, that the IQ level of actor Robert DeNiro, who publicly expressed his deep level of disdain, or rather his hatred for President Donald Trump, hadn’t changed.

When a celebrity uses only base rhetoric to express an opposing political opinion, such as using the one word that best describes one of life’s more pleasurable functions betweens the sex’s, as a statement of fact, then we have achieved the collapse of polite discourse and the sure sign that DeNiro’s “Peter Principal” level has been reached. DeNiro has achieved his highest level of intellectual attainment, a triumph of idiocy over debate. To the cheering Hollywood crowd, his word is final, but nobody really cares anymore, do they? Now, it’s only a news item.

The world is focusing on historic events: the just concluded G-7 Trade summit, the ludicrous after Trump statement by Canadian Premier Trudeau, the land creation going on in Hawaii and the land melting event in Guatemala, not to mention President Trumps mission to Singapore for a singular historic event, the first ever summit meeting between a North Korean despot, Kim Jung Un, and the President of the United States, and we are favored with DeNiro’s opinion.

We are in a whirl of world shaping news events to the point we almost can’t keep up and an aging pretty good movie actor, DeNiro, of no specific intellectual achievement, chooses a medium most Americans have stopped viewing, award shows, to offer up once again his learned opinion on the President of the United States.

What DeNiro reinforced by his tirade was that the Hollywood of today is no longer important except as a money raising machine for Democrats. Hollywood is disappearing, much of it having moved right here to Georgia. Most Americans already know what DeNiro thinks about conservative politics and it’s newest spokesman, Donald Trump, so we can safely ignore it.

What hurts most is the wild cheering by attendees applauding DeNiro’s version of the “truth” as DeNiro so cunningly expressed it. Some call the actor an “outspoken critic” of Trump, and he is but, who cares anymore? DeNiro can never speak his opinion without employing the lowest level of his rhetorical skills, using the “F___” word again and again. Maybe it’s his highest level.

These seemingly constant televised award shows by the entertainment industry patting itself on the back, have morphed into political action exercises by the Left to confirm their anti-American, anti-conservative and pro-Clinton opinions. They do it in the certain belief that simply because they have achieved celebrity or get a nomination to receive a silly trophy that has to be dusted once a week, that their opinion really matters. That is a delusional level above which people with excessively highly developed egos, like movie actors, rarely advance. The odd man out of course, is Donald Trump. His ego is his driving force and achievement, its reward.

Hollywood once expressed America’s culture in great movies; the culture that defeated the Nazi’s, the Japanese and later, economically, the Soviets. That’s the culture that drew thousands of intelligent immigrants to our shores to become Americans, not the culture of Hollywood today, demanding social changes Trump won’t give them. Theirs is the culture of political correctness, profane ideas and nasty words. Theirs is the culture of sexual exclusivity, diversity, inclusion, glorifying sodomites and multiculturalism, the direct antithesis of Americanism. Trump has changed the formula for success and they can’t stand it.

Short Takes – Revealing the Coup

Opinion

A name rarely mentioned in this tawdry ‘coup’ against Trump business, is recently retired Admiral Mike Rogers, head of the NSA with the dual capacity as the Director of the newly forming Cyber Command. If I were asked to select a candidate for a “Profiles in Courage” award, it would surely be Admiral Rogers, followed by Rep. Devin Nunes..

Over a year ago, both of these men took independent action when they recognized that things were not kosher in Obama’s government after Hillary lost her sure bet election. Progressives reaction to their election loss was disastrous and what Mike Rogers did was unprecedented. In his capacity as head of the NSA, it was his responsibility to share NSA collected intelligence of special interest with the heads of the other Intelligence agencies, but particularly the CIA Director, John Brennan and the Director of National Intelligence DNI, James Clapper.

It was reported that Mike Rogers was reading some reports that crossed his desk that alarmed him by what they revealed. He immediately cancelled all appointments for the day, packed up his briefcase and in an unprecedented move, headed to NYC for a secret emergency meeting with President-Elect Donald Trump in Trump Tower on 08/11/16.  Adm. Rogers did not share the need for this secret emergency meeting with the CIA or the DNI, because clearly, they would have attempted to stop him.

The information he revealed to the President-elect was that Obama’s Intelligence Community, John Brennen and James Clapper, had launched a covert post election spying operation against Donald Trump, that included intercepting Trump’s communications in Trump Tower.

Readers may recall the very next day following that ‘secret’ meeting, Donald Trump claimed that his building had been ‘wired tapped’ and he immediately, moved the Trump organization out of Trump Tower, lock, stock and barrel, to another location accompanied by the hoots, hollers,  ‘harumps’ and derisive laughter of the Leftist media and, more importantly, the deep state.

Of course, hard wire intercepts of telephone communications (wiretaps) as were common in earlier decades, are no longer used as technology has quickly advanced far beyond those now antiquated methods. Today, cyber systems are now in vogue that sweep the ‘ether,’ collecting any and all data government computers deems necessary to save itself.

Among those important intercepts that crossed Adm. Rogers desk was information that clearly showed the newly elected president, Donald Trump, was being illegally surveilled in his Trump Tower Headquarters. When the laughter died down, sober faces suddenly realized the import of the disclosure. Day’s later, The Washington Post reported a recommendation, allegedly made in in “October,” that Mike Rogers should be removed from his NSA position & etc..

Obama’s heads in the Pentagon and the intelligence community, urgently recommended to President Obama that, Adm. Rogers, should be removed (fired) as the NSA. head. The panic was setting in, the consternation was complete, but Admiral Rogers maintained his loyalty, his dignity and his self-respect. Clearly, Mike Rogers didn’t want to be involved with the spying scheme which was Obama’s post presidency plan to save his legacy and prevent Trump from removing Obama’s embedded loyalists. Rogers unknown loyalty was a risk to the Obama objectives. He was not a swamp creature and the rest is history and it’s still in the making.

Short Takes – What is American Culture?

Opinion

What is American Culture?

The once great American political party known as the Democrat party, has been replaced from within by an ethically diverse mishmash of political activists brought up, raised and trained in Marxism by America’s colleges and universities, long since factory’s of political correctness, anti-Americanism and socialism with the sole purpose of destroying America’s founding culture that has sustained us for over 250 years. Today, we see what damage they have done.

American culture encompasses the whole of the history of the discovery, exploration, conflicts and growth of America from the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock to this very minute. This long process, started by Europeans, (whites) saw the introduction of social theories promoting  personal liberty and civil rights, economic development and even classical literature that praised the social experiments of prior civilizations like Greece and Rome and embraced and learned from their discoveries. Most important of all was the introduction of universal education of the masses, a social concept first introduced in Scotland, so every child could read and know the scriptures. That opened the flood gates of knowledge and discovery.

Society developed with the movement from agriculture to industry. It was so rapid that the need for energy, from firewood to coal and then oil, outpaced the ability of humans to produce it resulting in the need of vast pools of labor. So great was the need that even children, let alone slaves, were thrown into the maw of the labor force and worked in such squalid conditions, coal mines for example, that a whole new industry of empathy was developed bringing to us the consciousness of the social evils of child labor and poverty that needed to be ended.

Laws lifting the burden of manual labor on children and returning them to the school desk for education and enlightenment, was another positive change. Labor unions developed to protect the rights of workers which themselves, were not without conflicts and differences of opinion.

A great civil war ensued that ended the odious practice of slavery. America was facing new challenging social issues and how to solve them. Not all problems are solvable by mere edict and can only be worked around the edges, like what to do with emancipated former slaves? Could their culture be absorbed into the American culture, one that was forged in the fires of revolutionary conflict? Were our social norms that are now locked in our very souls, not worth saving? They are the basis of America’s exceptionalism. What could replace them?

The African race has provided bright and intelligent new thinkers like Fredrick Douglas of the 1800’s, Martin Luther King Jr. of the 1960’s and even Herman Cain of today who have emerged to make effective marks on Americas culture and, while elements of racism existed from the beginning and still exists today and will continue to exist tomorrow, the roll of successful Black Americans in America’s history cannot be ignored. That was sealed with the Freedom March in Selma, Alabama, Martin Luther King’s famous “I have a dream” speech and his assassination.

Today, the Democrats have launched their version of fascism’s “Black Shirts” the hooded and masked “anti-facist’s” thugs, who are the very epitome of fascists, in attacks against our police on the streets, conservatives in restaurants and children wearing MAGA hats. The media is corrupted and complicit in the pursuit of America’s destruction. They participate willingly in obfuscating the truth, lying and praising socialism while diverting our attention with breathless, silly news items of absolutely no consequence while America burns, all designed to destroy the flower of Western Civilization. We must be prepared and help Trump vanquish the Left.

Short Takes – The Questions About Mueller

Opinion

The Questions About Mueller

It continues to amaze me that the Leftist media and their lackey’s in the Democrat party continue to asseverate the now thoroughly debauched GPS Fusion report as the one, truthful, legitimate document upon which Mueller can continue his persecution of Donald Trump. It’s as though they wish to preserve the Fusion report as a recently found lost book from the Gospels.

The Left’s attitude of complete contempt for the Congress was clearly manifest with the Congressional hearing of Mr. Peter Strzok, formerly an important cog in the anti-Trump FBI-DOJ cabal fixated on preserving the Clinton crime family and the Clinton Foundations money laundering scheme by pinning her nefarious activities to Trump’s campaign. They just can’t stand to lose but, by losing, they themselves stand in the cross hairs of judicial retribution and they know it. That’s why they are fighting so hard against Trump, to save themselves. Mueller isn’t the God sent angel the Left would have us believe. He has a history of targeting innocent people that has left an indelible stain on American jurisprudence. Can Justice be trusted?

A review of Mueller’s working history shows that he is capable of being quite ruthless in using the tactics of threats, harassment, prosecution for minor offenses and even forcing witnesses into bankruptcy, to admit to or claim anything against his target. Currently it’s the President of the United States, and the few who have lost to Mueller’s tactics, like Lt.Gen. Flynn, Paul Manafort and now Trumps personal lawyer, Mike Cohen, are evidence enough of his complete ruthlessness to protect the deep state. it certainly appears Mueller will do what it takes to bring down Trump except for one missing item…. accepting the truth.

What did Eric Holder of Fast and Furious (not the TV show) fame have to say about former FBI Director Mueller?  “I’ve known Bob Mueller for 20, 30 years; my guess is he’s just trying to make the case as good as he possibly can.” Holder knows him. As Attorney General he was Mueller’s boss when Mueller was Director of the FBI. He has seen Mueller at work when Holder himself was obstructing justice and being held in contempt of Congress. He knows Mueller framed innocent people without remorse, but what can he say but good things? Peas in a pod!

It “shocks, shocks” the system realizing that Mueller’s history of connivence reveals his true dark character. Placed as he was by Deputy Atty. General Rob Rosenstein, in a position to conduct a ‘coup’ against a lawfully-elected President, signals just how far down the toilet American politics has descended under the protection of a corrupt DOJ.

You can figure any Republican who say “Bob Mueller will do a good job as Special Counsel,”  or “Mueller has a great reputation for being fair,” and knows Bob Mueller, are “Never Trumpers” who desire President Trumps removal from office by any means necessary, be it inditement, chicanery, past business practices, emoluments, or consorting with weird women. They do not know , or care, about the many outrageous problems found in Mueller’s professional history. These people believe they are cultivating votes for a future run as a Senator or even President  perhaps, like John Kasich for example.

Mueller, like Comey, were never trained Special Agents of the FBI. They were lawyers before, they were lawyers after and they are still lawyers. Many assume lawyers, especially with long careers in the DOJ would make great Directors of the FBI. Not so! A capable director with years of field experience, who comes up through the ranks is far better prepared to keep the FBI out of cut-throat politics than lawyers. Comey, Strzok and Mueller are exceptions.

Short Takes – Are the Tea Party’s Moribund?

Opinion

Are the Tea Party’s Moribund?

“Associated Press declares Republican ‘Tea Party’ era has faded away…..” Hummn? Maybe, but I disagree with the premise asserted here by noting that pop-up, grass root political organizations like Tea Party’s, were mostly filled with aroused, angry people born in the 40’s and 50’s, who lived through the WW2 years and beyond, and enjoyed America’s post-war heyday of economic growth, prosperity and good living, only to see their parents achievements being replaced by the corrupting philosophy’s of national socialism, the same socialism their parents had just defeated. It was their parents who were the “Greatest Generation” and today, their children tend to get a bit tired after they’ve accomplished what they set out to do.   

Regardless of clearly commercial Internet Tea Party organizations that claim some primary roll over the movement, Tea Party’s were really local attempts to make a difference by people who realized their Representative were not doing what the base wanted but instead were spending without control and raising taxes to pay for it. Taxed Enough Already was the Tea Party’s mantra and still is. What they realized was, is that politics should not be a career choice.

Attending political meetings where you’re told what you already know and nothing really seems to get done, quickly loses its appeal. Most meetings are merely platforms for speech makers to energize the enthusiasm of the base to do one thing and one thing only, effect “term limits” one politician at a time and, that has been done.

Three successive national elections has completely changed the Congress from a majority of Marxist leaning Democrats and go along to get along Republicans happy not to have been kicked out by their constituents, to a majority of Republicans being pushed and cajoled by the few Tea Party members elected to replace dangerous democrats. More Changes are coming!

Time passes and enthusiasm wanes, but not the determination to make America great. The denizens of “fly-over” America have seen the results of their combined efforts to make the changes needed in the body politic. Enthusiasts, no matter how their called, Tea Party or GOP or whatever, have succeeded. The battle is joined.

At this moment, our President is Donald Trump, not a politician but a pragmatists, a doer who is doing what he promised he would and returning to Americans the pride they felt in their country that the previous administration apologized away. Weakness invites contempt. America is no longer weak.

The Tea Party movement encouraged a morose population of patriots to get off their butts and start changing their attitudes from defeatism and disheartening acceptance of the coming Socialism, to realizing the righteousness of America’s constitutional representative government, and connivence others to change their attitudes too. It worked in three successive elections.

Today, we see a rising tide of minority Americans of African descent realizing they have been kept on the lowest level of the economic plantation created by the Democrats, and are starting to rebel, despite what the Black Shirts of the Fascist anarchy movements, AntiFa and BLM, want. America is on the threshold of greatness and we need all our citizens involved in the task. That’s the promise Trump has brought us, and that’s the promise he’s keeping. Conservatives can no longer enjoy the policy of bipartisanship with an enemy that wants to destroy us.

Short Takes – Perspectives in Violence

Opinion

Perspective, about deadly events, means nothing if you are the victim facing any threat that could kill you. Currently, the objet d’jour of outrage is against guns because they are noisy, frightening and, if semi-automatic, can do a lot of damage quickly. One such, in the hands of a disturbed individual just killed a lot of innocent people as well. But, so can a determined person with a vehicle by smashing into crowds of holiday makers, school children lining up for their bus or pedestrians window shopping on a city street. Jihadists are using this inexpensive technique.

 

The violence by guns statistics of Chicago, Baltimore, St. Louis and Detroit alone, makes the perspective of other means of violent death seem trivial in comparison. Deaths in the four cities mentioned exceed the numbers of soldiers killed in Middle-East conflicts.  American troops killed in Afghanistan and Iraq in an eleven year period, 2001 and 2012 was 6,488. Add the number of American women killed in domestic violence by husbands or boyfriends, at 11,766, and it nearly doubles the number of casualties killed in the recent wars.

 

Here’s where ‘perspective‘ changes. In 2015, 10,265 people died in drunk driving collisions  accounting for nearly a third of all traffic-related deaths in the United States. 209 children, aged one to fourteen, were among those statistics as victims of drunk drivers. In 2015, nearly 1.1 million drivers were apprehended for DUI by alcohol or narcotics. A studied survey conducted by the Mothers Against Drunk Drivers group revealed 14,000,000 (yes, 14 million) people drive impaired daily on our streets and highways. Where is the outrage?

 

On top of that, the death rates caused by illegals lurking in sanctuary cities, is unbelievable. What happens to them? They are sometimes deported only to return a few months later to do it all over again.  Another large contributor to the high vehicle death rate is driving while texting. The death rate here is roughly nine killed and a thousand injured every day. Using cell phones accounts for nearly 1.6 million crashes a year (2015 statistics).

 

Deaths by Domestic violence has occurred since the beginning of time between two partners who have a disagreements. Usually it’s men vs. women, often resulting in death or injury to responding police officers. Add in the Gay partnerships and well, they’re not immune either.  

 

A really big death offender is the medical and pharmacies industry. 100,000 Americans are killed annually by drugs prescribed by doctors (Source: www.CDC.gov). These killings go on year after year with no consequences to drug companies or doctors. Doctors can simply bury their mistakes. Overdose deaths average 13 teenagers an hour yet no one in the Congress has the courage to seal the Mexican-US border from the $50 billion in drugs crossing there annually.  At least 64,000 Americans died from illegal drugs in 2016 that crossed our southern border. (Source: www.drugabuse.gov).  Did I not mention killings, by knives, hammers or baseball bats? 1,490 people were killed by cutting instruments in 2013. Rifles, including the AR-15, killed only 285 folks while shotguns killed 308. The highest death rates have been in “gun free” zones.

The discussion on “gun violence” is the mantra of the Left. They only want complete and total gun confiscation. To them, no other solution is worthy of discussion. Our society is seriously divided between constitutionalists and the dark forces of complete socialism. A disarmed America is their total goal. Once the 2nd amendment is neutralized and Americans are relieved of the responsibility for their own self-defense, then watch the crushing mantle of Communism spread over the land, enforced by the only armed group left, their police forces. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Short Takes – How Deep is the Deep State?

Opinion

How Deep is the Deep State?

The outrage from the remnants of the Bush, Clinton, Obama administration’s, supported by the Leftist media keeps trumpeting against the supposed “faux pas” Trump made in his Helsinki summit with Putin. This includes the seriously nonsensical cries of “TREASON.”  

Definitely not treason. I’ll go with a “faux pas” (a stumble) but nothing, absolutely nothing, Trump has done compares with the absolute treasonous activity of Hillary Clinton with her sale of American uranium to Russia, her unauthorized email server passing classified information, her aides destroying evidence (Cell devices) and her Clinton Foundation’s money laundering for Clinton’s profit. All that criminality is ignored by the press, by most Republicans, by the DNC whose deranged activists not only destroyed evidence, but denied the FBI the right to examine the physical evidence of the DNC’s alleged hacked computers, not to mention the DNC’s imported Congressional IT experts, a whole family nest of Pakistani Muslim spies.

The question now circulating is did Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein allow special counsel Mueller to publicize his indictment of several Russian operatives just before Trumps Helsinki Summit with Vladimir Putin to stop the summit, affect its outcome or embarrass the President? Rosenstein said he informed the President three days before Helsinki and Trump didn’t object. Okay! That’s the politics today. I’ll leave it at that because tomorrow there will be yet another outrage for the Democrats to glam up on. It’s just a matter of patience. One day something could stick.

How about let’s play ‘Jeprody,’ except I’ll provide the answer: “Who is Lisa Barsoomian?”

Lisa H. Barsoomian is an attorney, a graduate of Georgetown Law School. She’s a protege of both Robert Mueller and James Comey. She worked for R. Craig Lawrence and represented Bill Clinton in 1998. She also represented Robert Muller three times, James Comey five times, Barack Obama forty-five times, Kathleen Sibelius fifty-six times, Bill Clinton forty more times and Hillary Clinton seventeen times not to mention the FBI at least five times.  She’s good!

Unlike the demented Left that seeks fault in Trumps every nuance and demands his immediate Impeachment, the folks she represented were doubtless sued by some organization or another, for some frivolous complaint or other. The courts are filled with this stuff. it’s all a matter of looking it up. She’s a lawyer, a good one apparently, doing the jobs she was hired for. But, who is she and why should we care?

We should care because all her files, documents and court cases relating to the Clinton’s are being purged including her defense of Bill Clinton in the Hamburg vs. Clinton case in 1998 and its appeal in 1999. In my world, once, purges like this, or change of stations, suggested the need to protect an informant in some scheme against a criminal element or a foreign government. Was/is she an Intelligence agent? I won’t speculate further except to note that her email address is with the NIH, a known hiding place for deep cover government operatives. The NIH is the inoffensively titled National Institutes of Health. Just saying!

Much of her professional work was defending American Intelligence agencies from FOIA requests. She has been involved, reportedly, in hundreds of cases representing the US Attorneys office in Wash. DC. But here, I should point out that we’re venturing into the dark world of the American Intelligence Community that Trump allegedly dissed in his Helsinki remarks that has the Left in a tizzy.  

Isn’t it the American Intelligence community that has been actively engaged in organizing a Coup against President Trump ever since his election? Which brings us back to the continuing, dull, mind deadening Mueller Investigation that will never cease. Why?

Well, because, among other things, it deals with Trumps tariffs on Chinese steel and aluminum imports, funding the border wall, providing amnesty to the illegal Stateless children (DACA) collecting on our borders, protects the Clapper leaks, the Comey leaks, Jeff Sessions recusal and other dangerous changes to the Deep State that Trump is bringing down.

Where does Barsoomian fit in and why should we care? Because she is Assistant Attorney General Rod Rosenstein’s wife. How about them apples?  Nothing I’ve mentioned here is secret or classified in any way. It’s all from open sources.

Short Takes – Independence Day, Can We Keep it?

Opinion

Independence Day, Can We Keep It?

As Americans, we see that the focus of the rising tempo of incivility in our public discourse has moved from politics to issues of culture and we must ask why? Well, it’s because for America, the political arguments have already been settled although one side won’t admit it. It’s settled because of our Constitution which gives us our inalienable rights. The defense of that document has risen exponentially to the assault on it. 

The great struggle now, between constitutionalists and the marxists has morphed into the cultural arena that avoids the distasteful facts of logic, truths and law, those trivial little items that impede their move to socialism. Its tenants, protected by “political correctness,” allows PC proponents to range widely in their destructive process of changing America’s culture, if not its laws, before the people could catch on. It almost worked, then along came Trump!

Political Correctness is the hand-maiden of diversity, multiculturalism, socialism, fascism and communism. It is the vehicle used to change our cultural norms. For example, once, the  important emphasis taught in school was on the proper use of the English language. After the Civil Rights law era, It was abandoned as a requirement specifically because of diversity, inclusiveness and multiculturalism. Some couldn’t or wouldn’t understand it. Today, our language is a mishmash of Babel. That’s only one aspect of the Lefts hidden attack on Americas exceptionalism. If they can’t read or write, they’re going nowhere. That applies to all races.

Political correctness requires no authority. it survives on the precept of exclusion and fear. It exists solely on what “group think” determines to be correct and uses the power of the mob, whether its the media or the Hollywood Leftists, or the street thugs like Antifa and BLM, to challenge, almost daily, our Presidents authority. It is this fear that keeps us everyday, working class Americans in check because our side doesn’t do what they do. We are constitutionalists and expect the rule of law to function. We relay on debate and persuasion to make our choices and we are not prepared, yet, to bash heads

For the Left, political correctness denies the “free exercise clause” unless it’s for them alone. That requires disciplined adherence to group think or blind allegiance, and to disagree with them, is to invite the wrath of the Lefts public approbation like the rejection Kayne West is now experiencing for his apostasy. 

The theater of the street, now extended into the dining rooms of public restaurants, has become the stage for the Lefts threatening noisy attacks on constitutionality and civility. Screaming over the objections of others and drowning out other opinions is the Lefts only way to stay relevant. They intend to paralyze the process by division and political polarization and until Trump, they were succeeding. That being the case, how does the once successful union of American politics and culture survive in the future? Apparently it won’t. The Left is engaged in an all or nothing battle to kill our independence and move us into the common ranks of a one world government.

To be in politics is because those are paying jobs, even if it costs more to get the job then the job pays. There’s a contradiction there, surely? But, with the job however, comes the reward of legitimate authority, until the next election. Since the authority gifted by elections is essential to the Lefts agenda, they will take all steps necessary to ensure the Left does not lose those elections. So far, it’s not workings quite well as as they had hoped. It’s our Independence day, not theirs. So enjoy it. It’s Independence Day, not July 4th. Let’s try to keep it.

Short Takes – The Illegal Immigration Problem Will Still Persists

Opinion

The Illegal Immigration Problem Will Still Persist

I was seriously alarmed listening to radio host Hugh Hewitt’s interview with Attorney General, Jeff Sessions on the subject of illegal immigration. In fact I couldn’t believe my ears when Hewitt argued on the basis of unfounded compassion “for the children” who are separated from their parents when apprehended at the border, to which Mr. Jeff Sessions replied, their is no compassion when children are separated from their parents when parents are headed for prison!  I made the same observation in a recent essay on the subject.

Mr. Hewitt assumed a “compassionate conservative” attitude about the poor illegal immigrants children being taken (snatched) away from their parents at the borders. During the interview he persisted in tempting AG Sessions to express a level of compassion too .He did not.  AG Sessions held his ground on the basis of the law.and rightly pointed out that the majority of those children were teens or young adults anyway.

Hugh Hewitt then asked: “There’s an organization called Kids in Need of Defense, and, they’re liberal activists, but they have a point that these children deserve representation, because many of them are eligible for asylum or refugee status. You’re the chief law enforcement officer. Are you guaranteeing that these 10,000 children have adequate access to legal counsel?” That entire premise is wrong. I contend, these people deserve no representation at our expense because they are stateless people and have no call for our protections. They are entitled to protection in custody, a bed, food and water and that’s it. That satisfies our moral duty.  

This whole illegal aliens business, has been turned into a touchy feely, sobbing exercise in unwarranted compassion for the ignorant masses crashing our borders. Permitting it relaxes our defenses and diminishes our security. The porous border with Mexico, due to its ease of passage, is a magnet for the worlds worst now including Chinese tongs, Islamic Jihadists, drug cartels, MS-13 gang members and who knows what other criminal types?

When caught, they’ve been coached to simply claim ‘amnesty’ and demand entry. Except for Cuban’s and maybe Venezuelans now, no other South American country’s citizens should expect “amnesty.” But, that problem can be solved if Congress, gets over it’s hand wringing deliberations on DACA, make claiming amnesty applicable only at US Ports of Entry and nowhere else. Illegal DACA children are still Stateless People. DACA was one of Obama’s “pen and phone’ deals, not supported by law, not ratified by Congress not agreed to by Americans, but, a feel good policy created out of thin air to up the Democrat voter rolls. Dispensing drivers licenses and voter ID cards to illegals, as California does, diminishes the very basis of our representative government, not to mention their drivers licenses in out of state jurisdictions.

Clearly Congress is disconnected from the will of the American people unable as they are to make a decision as the law provides, on stopping the invasion of America. Half of California’s Mexicans are against DACA because it steals from their legitimacy. On top of that, California is almost bankrupt yet the Progressive government still piles on more freebies for illegals.

Members of congress, whose only goal is their re-election, must face the demands of their constituents, for and against, amnesty. The majority is “anti” amnesty yet, the loudest screaming voices for amnesty and work authorizations, from the Left, will drive them to legalize millions of illegals who have no desire to become Americans, join our culture, or obey our laws, the will of the people be damned.  What an argument for term limits.

Short Takes – A Return to the Draft? A Memorial Day Thought

Opinion

Suggestions are swirling again about a return to the draft. For those born after the 1960’s, the draft was compulsory military service for two or more years. Throughout America’s history from the Civil War to Vietnam, different rules governed who was drafted, how one could get a deferment or a buy out, or get a political commission to work his time on a staff. That was all rife for abuse, and, it was abused.

Deferments were applied to account for medical reasons like, say flat feet and lung diseases, but a medical officer at the induction stations would make that decision. If you got your notice, you had to show up for induction and if you passed, your life changed forever.

Political deferments for celebrities, politicians and sons of politicians, like Ted Kennedy, were created while many others, stood up, begging their way into uniform. John Kennedy and his older brother did so. They weren’t famous then but their father had been US Ambassador to the UK. Hollywood stars flocked to the ranks during WW2 and did their duty as the government needed, including combat.

The draft was a numbers system, most draftees going into the army. With usable skills, one could be enrolled in a technical program for training as a mechanic, medic, or radio operator, otherwise, it was into one of the combat arms, Infantry sucking up the most. Only a few draftees ever went into the US Marine Corps or the Navy, because they filled their needed quota’s with volunteers. Many escaped the draft by school deferments and some when drafted, ran away to hide. During the Vietnam war, it was to Canada.

Many, eager to fight, volunteered to join a combat arm. That’s where the action was. For many, it wasn’t until they were covered with blood, sweat and the brains of their buddies, that they realized the awful truth about combat. It’ was then when a boy became a man and what he experienced would stay with him for the rest of his life. Every Memorial Day reveals more of these stories as the old Vet’s pass away.

Since 9/11, the military has had no problem filling its ranks with volunteers.These patriotic young people, with a few exceptions like Bowie Bergdahl, stay the course and remained loyal active members of their units. Many re-enlist to continue the fight and many comeback without limbs, emotionally traumatized or forever needing care. Some alas, never come back.  

America celebrates these fighters twice a year, Memorial day and Veteran’s day when the sacrifices of our military men and women are recognized and honored. How many people do you see today stand to attention when the American flag passes in review? Veterans always do. It’s honor and sacrifice.

The problem with a return of the draft today is that most of our youths are not qualified. They have been subverted by an education system, its teaching ranks filled with the anti-war radicals from the 1960’s, like the Clintons. Our schools have failed to educate our young people about Americas traditional values and why we fight, or have lied about our history making it hateful. That’s a sad but true fact. The one great pool of true Americanism, the Boy Scouts, is being perverted into a potential pool for pedophiles.

Do we need a return to the military draft? I don’t think so! To recreate a program that expects its personal to perform, even to die on a battlefield, but turns many of them into deserters requiring efforts by the military to keep them, was never good for moral. Cowards in the ranks reveal themselves quickly and their whining can bring the moral of a whole unit down to their level of defeatism. Too, a new draft would now necessarily demand the inclusion of our daughters. Those that want to go, can do so now. Those that don’t, should stay home and tend the home fires. Today, on this Memorial Day,  just be thankful Hillary Clinton’s not President. That’s worth cheering about.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! Hug a soldier today and have a happy Memorial day event. (26May18)
