Charlottesville

 Charlottesville Violence The events in Charlottesville were completely predictable. The ‘offended’ left has moved to needlessly destroy huge chunks of Southern history and tradition over the past few years. PC fanatics have done everything from sweeping the names of Confederate heroes from schools and streets to removing statues and flags from the town square … even denouncing Southern religion. Because of a few political outsiders with an agenda, an entire culture is being swept from view.
 
While those who elected to verbally object to these proceedings were admittedly the wrong people acting in the wrong way, they do represent a much greater contingent that has gone so far as to, once again, talk seriously about secession of the entire South.
 
Add to all this the on-scene appearance of the very people who are perpetrating this cultural demolition — most likely bussed in by the likes of a George Soros or some other other far left radical financier — and you have the recipe for the kind of violence that enveloped the historic Virginia community. Some might even say the whole affair was a setup from the beginning!
 
President Trump did exactly the right thing by not jumping to conclusions the way his predecessor was given to do. Regardless of how tragic the incident, it is important for a responsible leader to have all the facts before assigning blame, lest the flames of hatred be further fanned as has been the practice in the past.

The Tax Bit

Rachael-MaddowThe Democrats have finally become a parody of themselves. I never watch MSLSD because I didn’t think their other viewer and I would get along very well, but after the skit I saw last night, I may take my chances in the future. Last night Rachael Maddow delivered a comedy routine that rivaled anything Saturday Night Live has put together in years!

With all the alacrity of Tina Fey viewing Russia from her (Sarah Palin’s) front porch and the comic timing of Jackie Gleason’s “Better Living Through TV” Honeymooners episode, Maddow delivered one line after another that had me waiting for someone to ask if she could “core a apple” with the pair of pages she constantly and so joyfully waived in the air! Then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any funnier, she brought out Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton to add further speculation to the supposition stew she had cooked up.

What she had were two scraps of paper that, at best, substantiated President Trump probably needed a new accountant because he had paid more tax than he needed to 12 years ago. At worst she, or actually the Kramden character, was in receipt of stolen goods as the result of a mole, likely somewhere in government, committing a felonious act by releasing unauthorized material from a private citizen’s tax return.

The piling of one “what if, maybe, perhaps or suppose” on top of another surpassed even the height of a Trump skyscraper but without its strength or integrity. If you missed the bit on TV, you must view it online https://youtu.be/IR9ufwueGQs but I warn you, the hilarity lasts an entire hour. The only negative here is that someone might actually take this bit of nonsense seriously, instead of simply enjoying it for the desperate spoof that it represents.

As for Rachael? With her kooky facial expressions and campy delivery, I’m guessing she has a bright future at SNL, Comedy Central, or even right there at MSLSD where they are clearly on a ‘trip’, not a mission!

BlackoutAS A POST SCRIPT:  NBC apparently doesn’t want you to see Maddow making a fool of herself. The link I provided won’t work because they have just withdrawn the video of this program and “blocked it in your country on copyright grounds”.  Guess that’s our “free press” at work these daze!

Trump Triumph!

Trump-Speaks-PostLast night wasn’t just Donald Trump giving a speech. It wasn’t Donald Trump businessman, candidate or even President-elect giving a speech. Last night was The President of the United States addressing both houses of Congress. As Ol’ Lefty Chris Wallace even said on FOX, “Whatever you believe, whatever side you are on, tonight Donald Trump became The President!”
 
Interrupted 94 times in 60 minutes, watching the likes of Nancy Pelosi having a hissy-fit in her seat, and seeing an increasing number of Democrats applaud as President Trump soared in the House Chamber, proved that you can fly with eagles if you don’t get bogged down by turkeys!
 
In contrast, the Democrat response was given by an old guy in a flannel shirt from a greasy diner, who didn’t seem quite sure whether he was a Republican or Democrat. I kept hoping someone would buy the poor old coot a cuppa’ joe. There really is a message there, somewhere.

Objects May Appear Larger

Ant MagfdWhen initially taking office, most U.S. Presidents historically receive what has been referred to as a honeymoon period that usually lasts at least a couple of months.  In President Trump’s case, it was more like “wham, bam, thank you man” … no honeymoon, not even foreplay, just a pure, raw bumping of uglies right from the start!

The Democrats not only have a problem accepting their defeat in November, they can’t even admit to themselves the reasons they lost.  Instead of channelling their energies into rebuilding their decimated party, they have focused on discrediting the new president and trying to block his administration from achieving the goals for which the voters gave him a mandate … even bringing down The President himself, if possible.  So far, with help from a compliant media, and a few extremely wealthy donors on the left, progressive Democrats have been able to make a very small minority look as though they represent some kind of majority.  It’s sort of like looking at an ant with a magnifying glass, and equally as deceptive.

What they seem to ignore with their violent and vocal onslaughts is that, for more than a year, thousands of people turned out for Trump rallies in record numbers — braving heat, sleet, snow, verbal abuse and sometimes even physical attacks — just to be a part of his historic campaign.  With overwhelming support they made him their candidate, then in November, with an electoral landslide, made him our President!

President Trump has, in a matter of weeks, accomplished more for America and fulfilled more campaign promises than most presidents in six months … and in the case of his predecessor, more than was achieved in EIGHT years!  Is there any reason to believe, as progressive Democrats and their minions would have you believe, that all those supporters are suddenly dissatisfied and changing their minds about their presidential selection?  Many are upset with a congress that is getting cold feet about immigration restrictions, repealing the Unaffordable Care Act and implementing tax reform … furious with Democrat hacks who are engaged in outright obstruction, trying to prevent an historically smooth transition of power and the rightful formation of a new government. As for all the noise, what we mostly hear are bought and paid for agitators.   Make no mistake, voting Americans are more solidly behind our President than ever.

It’s really pretty simple:  Those on the left didn’t take Mr. Trump seriously.  They painted him as some sort of buffoon and created a false caricature that they could hold up to the public … then they fell for it themselves!  They didn’t think he could win, didn’t listen to what he was saying, didn’t understand the changes the American people were demanding, and perceived that THEY were the mainstream  of thought, the center of the universe.  Now that President Trump is in the Oval Office and keeping his word, they are SURPRISED to see what is happening … now they are imploding, because the progressive left still has nothing new to offer, nothing but the same old anarchy and national decline.  Now We The People want more and it’s a movement much bigger than even President Trump himself, and he acknowledges that reality!

The Newz-z-z-z

SigningI can’t imagine what the Democrat networks were saying, because watching even FOX today was like watching an old Abbot and Costello flick. I don’t know why I even bother anymore except it’s great entertainment, especially with the part time amateurs that show up on the weekend. They have everything backasswards and are as clueless about President Trump, and what’s coming their way, as they are about the amount of gravitational pull on Jupiter.

At one point when I stopped laughing and picked myself up off the floor, I heard one character actually said that Mr. Trump, and I quote, “Has to learn to become a political leader” since he comes from a non-political background. The same dull witted mook then offered that “Trump is moving too fast and has to slow down” because politicians aren’t used to moving at this kind of pace. Apparently he sees getting things done as a “Haphazard governing style.” This Sunday wonder has to be a ‘swamp guy‘ and he’d better be careful not to trip over the drain cork.

For the record, the so-called resistance is going to continue as long as the money financing it holds out … and, sorry, but I’m afraid this is what fixing a broken country looks like. Democrats are going to have to get used to the idea that they lost “big league” and have no power. Republicans need to get rid of their cold feet and realize that time has come to actually deliver on the campaign promises they made. EVERYONE is going to have to adjust to President Trump’s do it bigger, better, faster, and under budget mode of operation … because it isn’t going to happen any other way!

Bringing There to Here

Immigrants-EllisI’m really getting tired of hearing how we are a nation built by immigrants.  Anyone who took American History 101 knows that … unless they were educated in the past quarter century or so while it was being rewritten.  The difference between those original immigrants and today’s border-jumpers or Middle-Eastern invaders is that they came here legally, with a desire to assimilate into our culture, to follow our Constitution, contribute to our country and become Americans … not to change anything, blow it up or drain the system of its wealth.  One of my favorite political commentators likes to say, “You can’t bring there to here without changing here to there.”

The immigrants who built America were sponsored and expected to work.  They were admitted under quotas, with intense screening for health, nationality, political views, personal intent, skills and, yes, religion.  Those not meeting our criteria were sent back to their countries of origin.  They arrived here over a great many decades, not in a stampede within a few months or a few years, learned our language, abided by our laws and our customs, while [secondarily] preserving their own heritage.  They were admitted because of need or desire, not for political purposes or to satisfy an agenda.

No one has the RIGHT to come into America.  It is a privilege that we extend to those deserving of it and there are specific procedures to be followed in order to get here and to stay here.  Contrary to what many on the left or bought and paid for anarchist crowds — or illegal aliens making unwarranted demands while burning our flag — would have you believe, we are a compassionate nation but a nation of laws.  This is who we are, who we have always been, and the broad diversity of talent woven into a single fabric is what has made America exceptional, what has made America great!

Give Me Your Tired, Hungry and Loyal

screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-8-01-14-pmWouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?  I didn’t know about this act until a friend sent me the link in an eMail, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.  Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington D.C. do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).  The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.  Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our  President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.  Many took up the cry of, “We’re better than that!”  Really?

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.  Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary,  suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

Take a wild guess who last used this process?  Hint:  It’s a Democrat!  Surprise again …  it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States!  Actually Carter did even more.   He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama Administration?  By the way, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”  Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, all Muslims should be refused immigration to America!

Media Fantasy

media-childrenAt this point, I’m getting a YUUGE kick out of watching the media rush from one end of the planet to another trying to keep up with President-Elect Trump and bellyaching about having to do it! After treating him like something you’d scrape off your shoe for more than a year, do they really expect some kind of consideration? In fact, these pitiful sots are still at it, tossing everything at him but the upstairs commode! What do they think he is, a politician or something?

Even funnier is the campaign in chaos routine. I wish someone would inform the press and pundits that the campaign is over and what they are witnessing is the formation of a new, ‘action-packed’ government unlike the typical old-boy Washington model. This one will work in practice and serve The People … not the lobbyists, big buck contributors, or the politicos’ own self-interest.

As for folks leaving his organization, bear in mind the new President is very particular in his hiring practices and exacting in his expectations for performance. No less will be demanded of those in his new administration than those in current Trump corporate entities, where only the best of the best are retained!

Back To The Future?

foundersTuesday’s election is more than choosing between two people, it’s choosing between two different ways of life for ourselves, our children, and their children. Not only will the outcome affect the Supreme Court but thousands of other appointed judgeships from sea to shining sea. Do we want to be a soft dictatorship, with few rights, high taxes, limited opportunity and a bloated government making decisions for us and running our everyday lives … or a free constitutional republic, with individual liberty, a small government, keeping more of what we earn and the right to make our own decisions about how and where we live and who we are? Clinton’s appointments will tilt our courts to the left and produce the former; Trump’s appointment of Conservative judges assures the latter.
 
Hillary Clinton’s global society, with no borders and open trade will keep us on the same path of stagnation and chaos we see in the failing nations of Europe and create a wholly dependent society. Donald Trump’s vision for change will return us to the kind of personal opportunity and prosperous America our founding fathers envisioned when they designed a free and independent nation, unique in the history of mankind … a kind of back to the future. This election is NOT ABOUT OBAMA’S LEGACY, it’s about OURS!

Not Trump

14639872_1432831103398041_3804404081228099233_nFunny thing about all the Democrat attempts at condemning Donald Trump: He never raised our taxes, cost American lives, voted for a war, presided over a surrender, sponsored a wasteful stimulus, got our national credit rating lowered, embraced our enemies, insulted our allies, infringed our free speech, religious liberty or 2nd Amendment rights.

He never compromised national security, sold stockpiles of American uranium to an adversary, peddled influence, negotiated a worthless nuclear deal, paid terrorists ransom for hostages, destroyed our healthcare system, disrespected police, gutted our military, insulted our veterans, paid thugs to riot in our streets, supported anarchist groups or compromised our national sovereignty.

He never did any of those things, never had the power to, yet Mr. Trump’s detractors say he is not qualified to be president. Really?
