Why Is It Raining Hate On Happy Cows

Wed, 10/31/2018 - 6:32am

Why It’s Raining Hate on Happy Cows? I’ll make this simple. I’ll make this brief. I will make everybody angry. As nearly any fool can see, America is a country with a constitution that has been hijacked. Everything we are bickering about, guns, religion, race, and who is free to do what got settled in plain language in the constitution. Almost any fool can see that the supreme courts throughout history have twisted the plan for governing a nation of free men into a pretzel in order to serve the narrow interests of a tiny percentage of Americans. These “justices” did not act on conviction, a desire to see a better society, or political ideology. They acted purely out of self interest and prejudice.

We could fix this, but like cattle, we go where we are prodded, and that tiny minority controls our media as well as our Supreme Court. Simply put, the media is everything you see or hear that is produced in a way to entertain or influence you. The net effect of this is that throughout your entire day, the process of critical thinking that should be concerned with gathering and interpreting data, is taken over smoothly by a process of media joined to end thought processes. In other words, we are being told what is happening, and what we think about it.

We must fight this, and we must fight this to the death. Take this and reason it out. President Trump threw out a ton of hate speech from the beginning. Look it up, it’s true. We all know that there are crazy folks among us. Look it up. It’s true. We all know that many of these crazy people exercise their second amendment rights and have guns. We all know that incomprehensibly these armed nuts get more excited one day than another and just start shooting. Those armed nuts are driven to this by the constant wash of fear and criticism that our various group thinks generate on a twenty four seven basis.

Now I know that makes you right wing cows mad, but wait! Hold up you left wing cows! What alternative are you left, wing nuts leaving the right wing nuts? Why aren’t you loudly proposing an alternative to passive invasions by groups of illegal immigrants? When President Trump was hating in a very public way, why didn’t you use some of that energy you spent criticizing the guy agreeing with him about the presence of a threat and proposing an answer? Any answer? I thought not, because cows can’t talk, they can only listen. Oh yeah, and hate!

It’s an Invasion Not a Caravan

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 10:56am

We’ve always known an October surprise would be coming…a surprise orchestrated by the Democrats who are desperate for something…for anything…to turn the midterms expected “Red Tide” blue. And now lo and behold a walking mass of humanity suddenly appears out of nowhere all in an attempt to force President Trump into a corner…a corner they hope he cannot escape from unscathed…damned forever by the media for whatever he does or does not do.

And that October surprise was an “invasion”…a caravan the media calls it…a caravan that is anything but. Started in Honduras and being joined by mostly young men from El Salvador, Guatemala, Nicaragua, and now being reported a scattering of Middle Eastern young men too, know that all those walking to our border are anything but refugees. And why…because a “refugee” is defined as, “a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster,” and an “asylum seeker” is someone defined as, “a person who has left their home country as a political refugee and is seeking asylum in another.”

Liberals would have us believe that those who make up the caravan currently heading for the U.S. border are a collection of “refugees” and “asylum seekers,” but that is far from the truth. What is heading our way by the thousands…and with a second wave now being formed… is an “invasion”…and there are ways to tell the difference.

First, nobody has forced any of these people to “flee” “asylum seekers” and “refugees” do not march more than 1,700 miles towards a new home based upon the idea of a new life with more opportunities while carrying the flags of the countries from which they are supposedly fleeing or from which they seek asylum.

Certainly socialism, with its built-in oppression and economic disasters would drive people away, but were that the case with the caravan why come to a country in which the only political party rolling out the welcome mat is championing socialist candidates? Wouldn’t that be the political equivalent of leaping from the fire into the proverbial frying pan knowing all the while that the party of welcome will force you to jump back into the fire?

Second, “asylum seekers” and “refugees” do not march more than 1,700 miles towards a new home based upon the idea of a new life with more opportunities while carrying the flags of the countries from which they are supposedly fleeing or from which they seek asylum.

Furthermore, while on your journey to the land of promise and opportunity neither a “refugee” nor the “seekers of asylum” would exhibit such decided disrespect toward the country of their destination as burning the flag of that country…the very country in which they supposedly hope will welcome them with open arms.

Invaders, however, would do all of those things and would further not care an iota about the destination country’s laws.

True “asylum seekers” and “refugees” also do not amass in groups of 10,000 or more and embark on a 1,700 mile trek with camera and media crews lined up to document the event nor do they embark without any way or means of sustaining themselves while on their long trek…but that is exactly what this supposed caravan has done. Real “refugees” and real “asylum seekers” do respect the laws of the country of their destination and they seek permission to stay, hoping to be granted such an opportunity.

Invaders, on the other hand, demand entrance, have no respect for the laws of their destination country, and rely on intimidation through numbers to force their way into a country.

In fact, by liberal definition, Genghis Khan was a “refugee” or an “asylum seeker,” who immigrated to one country after another.

The difference between Genghis Kahn’s mongrel forces and this caravan are simple…Khan stole whatever he needed along the way to finance his “invasion,” while this caravan is being financed by outside entities. Somebody or some entity is funding the caravan and providing those in it with food, water, and in some cases transportation, and we suggest they’re paying the families of those in the caravan for the services of their husbands and sons.

“For the services of their fathers and sons”…true words that can be seen by the very makeup of the caravan itself…an “invasion” actually for there is not a camel in sight. And also not in sight is women and children save for a few well placed for photo-ops within the invading masses of healthy and strong mostly young men. And with many an angry fist raised in the air demanding what they say is their right to enter our country, these folks most assuredly are anything but “refugees.” Lured here by the Democrats promise of lots of “free stuff” they now march 7000+ strong with flags of their home countries held high with pride, as they stop along the way to set fire to our beloved stars and stripes…the very symbol of freedom true refugees claim they want. Yet more times than not their violent actions prove all they want is the aforementioned Democrats promised “free stuff,” and all they have to do in return is give the Democrats their vote.

So with our border drawing ever near the question that remains paramount above all else is exactly who is not only feeding but funding this mass “invasion” of the uneducated and angry all with their hands out.

“In Honduras, the government wants to minimize why people are leaving — they know they are going to leave and they want to say they are doing so because of lies and the opposition, not the conditions that they created.” So said ex-Honduran congressional lawmaker and radio host Bartolo Fuentes…the very man who is ground zero of this current “invasion”…the very man who coordinated logistics back in September with small groups of folks seeking to make the risky trek north. Claiming the initial group was comprised of just 200 people but that after a television report on HCH (the Honduran news channel) it “inspired others” to form “caravans” of their own…including one of about about 1,000 people…and then to join up and merge together with others making the dangerous trip north.

And while Fuentes claims that “No one expected this human avalanche,” he is denying claims made by a reporter that it was he who promised to pay what he called “migrants” food and transportation costs. And while his words hold some truth…he might have helped fund or helped to secure funds…for the original group of 200, but in no way did this one man fund an “invasion” of the scope it is now…an “invasion” just about 1,000 miles away from our southern border.

So if not Bartolo Fuentes than who could fund such a mass of humanity now threatening to breech what should be our sovereign southern border?

Only one name comes to mind…George Soros…the very man who is spending billions of dollars to shift the world’s population to “brown” as he works to spread his ever so vile agenda across the globe. Nazi eugenics of sorts, but minus the overt butchery and savagery of course.

And know that while George Soros is not directly funneling money…as in he’s not writing a personal check…to keep this current “invasion” moving ever forward, he certainly is doing so through a backdoor if you will for we know that Soros is directly connected to big time leftist immigration sorts. And it’s believed he has already funded past caravans, in fact according to a May report in WND (World News Daily) regarding a previous caravan…“the caravan was organized by a group called Pueblo Sin Fronteras, [b]ut the effort is supported by the coalition CARA Family Detention Pro Bono Project.” And what is CARA…it’s a uniting of the Catholic Legal Immigration Network (CLIN), the American Immigration Council (AIC), the Refugee and Immigration Center for Education and Legal Services (RICELS) and the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA)…all now joined together under the acronym CARA.

And guess who directly funded then and still funds now these specific groups and their banner coalition CARA… George Soros’ Open Society Foundation (OSF)…a foundation with an estimated 19.59 billion endowment used to fund “civil society” groups and who states on their web page that their goal is to create, “vibrant and tolerant democracies whose governments are accountable to their citizens”…in other words they want to create “mob rule.” And that goes hand-in-hand with Pueblo Sin Fronteras’ Initiative to give preferential treatment to migrants over that of a county’s citizens. And with Soros’ OSF funding CARA, it’s CARA who is now believed to be funding this current 7000+ “invasion,” which actually makes perfect sense for supporting an “invasion” of this magnitude requires big money…and Soros’ OSF surely has big money…big money not only needed to feed this mass of humanity but big money to pay them to keep going forward if they waiver and want to return home.

And while in a recent interview with the Washington Post, Vice President Mike Pence not only defended President Trump’s belief that Middle Eastern men are part of this newest caravan, but stated that Honduran President Juan Orlando Hernández told him that the caravan was being financed by the Venezuelan government. But this counters what reporters traveling with the caravan are saying for they see no signs of Venezuelan involvement nor of Middle Eastern men. And while that might or might not turn out to be true, we still believe it’s George Soros’ feet as to where the blame and the funding lies.

But no matter the source of funding or the Democrat’s shadow lurking over the caravan, the fact remains from violence they came, with violence they march, as these invaders have threatened violence if we don’t let them in. And this is why President Trump has rightfully called this caravan an “assault on the United States.”

And to that affect, last week President Trump, via the Pentagon, ordered 800 members of the U.S. military to our southern border…a move many pundits and certainly liberals view as unconstitutional. They are right, but only in a narrow scope of things.

The 1878 Posse Comitatus Act bans the use of the military as domestic law enforcement, and in that narrow scope the military could not be sent by the president to the border…but what we’re dealing with in this case is far from “domestic law enforcement.” What we’re dealing with is an “invasion” by international entities, but there is a much bigger problem for President Trump’s critics where the Posse Comitatus Act is concerned…

It doesn’t exist.

That’s correct…there is no such thing as the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act. What we have is a Posse Comitatus Policy, which was in fact a simple statement within an 1878 army appropriations bill. And it may well come as a surprise to some that the policy was actually initiated by Democrats and meant to end funding for the U.S. army with regard to keeping the peace and maintaining open and fair elections in our former confederate states.

In that light, it is no wonder that today’s liberals are citing Posse Comitatus as a way to help ensure the prospect of future illegal aliens voting for Democrats.

That said, President Trump or for that matter any president, does have the authority to send our troops to the border, especially in a time of a national emergency of which a foreign “invasion” most clearly constitutes.

To be clear, back in the late 1870’s Republicans managed to include language into the Posse Comitatus policy that allowed the military to be deployed as law enforcement when “expressly authorized by the Constitution or act of Congress.” This also is being cited by liberals and pundits as a reason why President Trump cannot send our troops to the border…they claim it must be authorized by Congress.

That alone would be enough for the president to authorize sending our military to the border at this time, but for those who still claim it is unconstitutional, allow us to provide the Constitutional basis for presidential authorization.

It is found in Section IV, Article IV of the U.S. Constitution which promised protection against “invasion” or domestic insurrection and thus justifies the use of the military as domestic law enforcement. And if that’s not clear enough, consider 8 U.S.C. § 1182 which is far too long to be reproduced here and yet contains several parts that deal with exactly what’s happening right now, including this specific language:

(7) Documentation requirements
(A) Immigrants
(i) In general Except as otherwise specifically provided in this chapter, any immigrant at the time of application for admission—
(I)
who is not in possession of a valid unexpired immigrant visa, reentry permit, border crossing identification card, or other valid entry document required by this chapter, and a valid unexpired passport, or other suitable travel document, or document of identity and nationality if such document is required under the regulations issued by the Attorney General under section 1181(a) of this title, or
(II)
whose visa has been issued without compliance with the provisions of section 1153 of this title, is inadmissible.

Also included in 8 U.S.C. § 1182 is this: “Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period a she shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.”

While we are calling this caravan as we see it…an “invasion”…it would be incumbent upon President Trump to identify it as such for the sake of legal authorization to use the military to repel it, which begs the question…how is “invasion” defined?

The very definition of “invasion” is as follows: “An incursion by a large number of people or things into a place or sphere of activity,” or as “An unwelcome intrusion into another’s domain.”

As the United States is indeed the domain of U.S. citizens and this caravan constitutes a planned “incursion by a large number of people,” it seems to clearly fit the definition of “invasion.” And as we previously stated, illegal aliens do not come here to add to our society either culturally or economically…in fact they are bleeding our nation dry. The cost to our taxpayers is staggering as it is, with U.S. taxpayers funding illegal aliens to the tune of some $116 billion dollars every year…that’s what’s in it for members of the caravan. And that’s money down the drain not going to American citizens…not going to our veterans.

For liberals, the expense of funding this caravan is worth it in votes, as those getting “free stuff” will always vote for the party that vows to maintain their “free stuff.”

The fact is that 66% of the bill for illegal aliens, such as those traveling in this so-called caravan, is borne by local and state economies. And as their coffers strain to the breaking point and their citizen residents rise up against increasing property, sales, and excise taxes, liberals will be right there to promise a bailout, thus making those states as beholding to liberals as are to the illegal aliens themselves.

Americans, whether by local, state, or federal taxes, are being economically raped by illegal aliens as it is, and liberals want to add more of them into the mix. To say it is unsustainable would be a gross understatement, and it would be criminal to not protect our citizens, our state, local and federal economies or our southern border with military force if need be.

If need be…for these are folks too cowardly to stay home and fight to set their home countries free choosing instead to invade ours with violence if need be. But then maybe their threat of violence does need to be met with physical force…as in armed American troops stationed at the border…as cutting off foreign-aid funding to their said countries is not enough…for no “invasion” has ever been stopped by diplomacy alone or by a cutting off of funds… after all…where there’s a will there’s always a way. And we all know what needs to be done whether we outwardly say it or not for these folks have no right to be here…we are not now nor should we ever be the world’s dumping ground for folks who knowingly and willingly make a mockery of our judicial system and laws.

These folks are laughing at us as they relish in abusing what they think is their “right to asylum,” and the world is laughing along with them as we are really doing nothing of substance to stop this “invasion,” and it’s all because we are not standing united as one.

Make no mistake, if actions are not taken now to stop this “invasion”…and remember the Democrats are also using family separations and Trump’s rightfully harsh anti-illegal immigration stance in general as a prime ploy to get out the Democrat vote…we could very will see a “Blue Wave” in November as President Trump will unfortunately be perceived as weak.

These invaders have openly admitted their intention to cross into the U.S. illegally and with us having any idea who these people really are, we are facing a serious national security threat. Now more than ever we need President Trump to take matters into his own hands and lock our southern border down until we either fix our currently…thanks of course to the Democrats…broken immigration system or at the very least enforce the laws already on the books.

We cannot say it any plainer than that.

The Old Grey Nag

Tue, 10/30/2018 - 10:32am

There was this old grey nag. It obviously could never win a race, but it’s handlers put it in the races twice anyway. In the races it came in dead last, which was no big surprise to anyone except the idiots who, lured in by the fifty to one odds, bet on it anyway. What’s two dollars, right?

Well, after being beaten by a horse that had never raced in its life, the old grey nag retired, and everyone thought that was the end of the story. Au Contrairé! The talking horse, still in the company of jackasses, went public yesterday and hinting that she might be up for another race.

This is the product of a political party that has renamed itself “the blue wave!” You can’t make this stuff up, folks. Hillary Clinton actually insinuated her desire to be president yesterday, and the democrats had a collective orgasm. I knew democrats were stupid, but frankly, this is my surprised face.

And her offspring was babbling the same thing. Now her kid does have a nice butt, BUT butts don’t make presidents. Now let’s be honest here. We need two parties with opposing views to make democracy work, but wouldn’t you think the democrats could do better than this? It’s become the Old Grey Nag Party. They need to fire the donkey and put in a dilapidated old glue factory horse.

Look at their leaders. Pelosi, Waters, Sanders. Come to think of it, the jackass is appropriate. If one young, white, male were to emerge from the crowd and not even whisper the word “impeach” they might make a run of it. Yeah, I really just said that. It’s homophobic, misogynistic, and racist. Isn’t it amazing that I can touch all three bases with one swing of the bat? Political reality, folks! Democrats! Unless you pull your heads out of Mr. Ass no one with gasoline enough to drive to the polls is going to vote for you.

The closest thing to a contender is Beto in Texas. He kisses lots of babies, combs his hair like Robert Kennedy, and shows up consistently with his sleeves rolled up like he just got off work. Only problem is he’s a freaking communist, but he’s head and shoulders above the old grey nag!

In my opinion there is going to be a blue swirl, not wave because the democrats are too stupid to see the pedigree of a winning horse. SOMEday they’ll hit upon a candidate that republican voters won’t laugh at, maybe even vote for, but until then it’s the old grey nag and not even a place or show. A horse is a horse, of course of course . . .

Racism Is A Thing Of The Past

Mon, 10/29/2018 - 11:27am

Racism is a thing of the past. Let me explain. I don’t mean that we don’t have racism in America, what I’m saying is it belongs in the days of black and white television. It doesn’t fit in a black and white twenty first century society.

I had something happen to me about a year ago that profoundly moved me. We have a supermarket here in Killeen, HEB, that rivals Walmart. In fact, it’s better than Walmart in many ways. I go there practically every day. Well, on one particular trip I was walking across the parking lot and three black teens approached me from behind. Two of them took hold of my arms while the third rushed into the store, coming out with a motorized cart. I have a limp.

 

What I thought was an attack turned out to be an assist for a disabled older man. Once inside, I was looking for dog food for my dog. The small package was on the top shelf, and as I began to get out of the cart a young, pretty black girl got in front of me, retrieved the package, and put it into my basket. I thanked her and went to the meat section.

Chicken quarters were on sale, and I was about to put some in my basket when another young black girl stopped me. She asked me to follow her, and took me to the regular chicken display. She explained that the price here was lower than the so-called “sale” price that was set up to sell off older chicken.

At that point I told her about the two other incidents. She smiled and told me that there was a group of young black kids at their school who regularly help elderly white people whenever they can. She said that young men walking up behind you in a crowded parking lot in broad daylight should not be a cause for alarm, and their good deeds were an effort to disspell this mindset, which, in itself was racism. She was right.

The city where I live is very cosmopolitan. With Fort Hood, and the jobs that it generates, native Texans are in the minority. People here get along. Oh, we have drugs, and street gangs, but the police here are NOT out of control. In at least two encounters with them I have taken my gun, and placed it on a table or hood of a car, and the cops didn’t even flinch. In fact one asked how much one gun cost me, and did I think there were any more.

Courtesy, polite conversation, and respect are the order of the day. Since most residents are Army, or a dependent of the Army the education level is high, not to mention the travel experience that broadens horizons. Neighbors are all colors. Killeen shows that when people HAVE to get along they WILL get along.

We have one Mosque, a Catholic Church, and a slew of Baptist Churches that regularly get together for civic causes, or fairs. Nobody is shooting up any places of worship in Killeen, Texas. Killeenites have “been there, done that.” We lived through Luby’s and the Fort Hood massacre. But, those events did not divide us. They made us closer.

The last ten days have been a trial for America. As the people of the nation reel from mass shootings, and bomb scares, the people of Killeen know what hate speech does, and where it goes. And it’s all racism! When you hate on any group it becomes a race style attack. The American Congress has become hate filled. No longer working together to build America up, they’d sit across the isle from each other and proudly proclaim, that they will NEVER cooperate with the other party, going back to their constituents bragging about the legislation they stalled simply because someone in the other party submitted it.

And they all do it. Maxine Waters spews hate speech in the street. President Trump shouts, “Throw the bum out” at a rally, and a grown man in San Antonio thinks that makes it perfectly fine to grab a MAGA cap off a kid’s head, and throw his Coke in his face. Another man mails bombs to people who don’t agree with “his” president, and yet another kills eleven people at a religious service because he imagines the Jews are committing genocide in America.

This kind of thinking belongs in 1950s Arkansas. We don’t need gun control as much as we need hare control. From the way I began this article you probably thought I was going to try to tell you Killeen was Shingra La. No! Killeen began as a small settlement on the prairie. John and Jane Riggs were killed and burned by Comanche Indians in 1858, and their tombstone still rests in the city cemetery on Rancier Avenue. The town became a rail head for cattle drives, and was named after a railroad employee. From there came practically everything you’d expect from a cow town. I worked for men in the 1970s who ran girly shows, and sold bootleg whiskey. There were shooting galleries in the alleys downtown and the pimps would routinely use their own guns rather than the .22 rifles provided. Then came the two active shootings.

In all of this Killeen learned. We know where hate speech will end up. We’ve seen racism. We’ve counted the bodies. Our message to America is stop hating on each other. Campaign for your candidate, and if you win, congratulations. If you lose, better luck next time, because in the end it makes no difference at all. Next week I’ll just be going back to HEB and the election won’t affect the price of chicken one bit!

Liberal/Conservative Podcast

Sun, 10/28/2018 - 7:44am

My partner, Brother Theo, is a liberal democrat. Not in the way of the neo-liberals so prevalent today, but more like the JFK liberals of days gone by. I am a conservative republican. We combine our ideas on various issues, and you have been reading the results thereof.

We have extensive conversations each day, mostly over the phone and came upon the idea of somehow recording those talks and publishing them. Then Theo came upon the idea of a podcast platform. So he came over yesterday and we set up in my office. I made a video of the process, and he made an audio to put up later on the podcast.

What you’re going to see is raw, and unscripted, just like our phone conversations. We did try to watch our language a bit, but you’re going to hear some Texas slang here and there. While we did have an idea for the talk we very quickly departed that and launched into very uncharted territory.

Bear in mind that he IS a liberal and I AM a conservative. That having been said we are NOT mailing each other pipe bombs or shooting g up synagogues. That is the whole purpose of these podcasts. We are widely read, and people who meet us are amazed that we get along. We’ve gotten along for forty-five years. Brother Theo has known every one of my six ex-wives.

We, as a nation must come together in unity. Not agreement, unity. Conservatives and liberals must stand shoulder to shoulder on issues that affect us, and our children. We must reject the manipulation of dinosaurs in both the republican and democrat parties striving to divide us. After the recording we had cocktails and redesigned the Child Protective Services, came up with a method to fix the border and fixed Rowe v Wade. It was a very good bottle of vodka. That’s the way America is supposed to work. That’s what made America great, and will make it great again. MAGA is not a four letter word. Brother Theo doesn’t like President Trump’s methods, but he agrees that we need him to end the division of the Clinton/Bush dynasty.

Watch the video. There’s going to be more. Notice that we agree on practically every point as we reach for answers. We know there are differences. We know that our solutions may vary, but we also know that the world is watching us, and they hate us. They are jealous. They can’t be America, and we are a constant embarrassment to what they are NOT!

Sharon – The Garden

Sun, 10/28/2018 - 7:34am

Monday was warmer than the previous day. John had talked with Robert for a while and then both went back to the hotel. He woke at five, but lay in bed for a while. He wanted to meet Sharon today, but he didn’t want to be too obvious. Still, he didn’t want to miss her either. Decisions, decisions!

He rushed through his shower and breakfast and found his way down Westend about seven-fifteen. When he got the church on Westend Sharon was already there talking with a teenage girl. As John came around the corner, and descended down the stone steps into the garden, he recognized the girl as one of the children from the revival on the previous night. Sharon was talking very happily with her, and she, in kind, was responding. Sharon looked up and acknowledged John as she continued to explain something to the girl.

“When you say it, say, ‘My Dearest Mother Mary, behold us, your children in prayer before your immaculate heart,’ and then ask for the grace, or virtue you wish.”

The girl answered, “But, my mother said ‘at your feet’ was the right way.”

“It is all right to do it that way, but realize that you stand before the immaculate heart of Mary when you pray the Rosary. Be aware that her heart is pierced for sins, and you pray for the relief of the sins of the world when you pray the Rosary. So, you see, you stand before her immaculate heart.”

The young girl held up her Rosary, “Our Dearest Mother Mary, behold us your children in prayer before your immaculate heart. . . ”

Sharon grasped the girl’s hands and exclaimed, “Yes, yes, now you have it. Also, during your ‘Our Father’, never say, ‘. . . lead us into temptation,’ say instead, ‘not let us fall into temptation.’ The Lord would never lead you into sin, you lead yourself through the desire of your own flesh, and you fall as a result thereof. Pray to God to help you resist temptation. He gave Faustina a golden sash to help her.”

John was absolutely amazed at the way Sharon spoke so matter of factly about such matters. No Bible, no notes, just her own ideas. Still, she commanded the respect of the girl. She motioned for John to sit and said, “This is Michelle. She’s a very spiritual lady.”

“You were at the revival last night, weren’t you?”

“Yeah,” the girl replied, “I go to ‘Holy Joe’s’ every now and then. He’s the greatest!”

“Are you Baptist?”

“Heck no! I’m Catholic.”

John didn’t want to open the can of worms, so Sharon opened it for him, “She follows the spirit, John. Joe’s a
good man. He does the will of God. Michelle here appreciates that. You don’t understand?”

“No, no, I think it’s great. I’ve just never seen the two faiths so . . . mixed, that’s all.”

“They’re not mixed. Are you baptized?”

“Well, of course I am.”

“Were you baptized, ‘ In the Name of the Father, Son, and the Holy Spirit?”

“Yes, I was.”

“Well, so do the Catholics. Same baptism, same God.”

“I was immersed.”

“I wasn’t.”

John wanted to get off of this subject while the young girl was there so he asked, “Well, what did you think about last night?”

“Hey, you were cool. I mean, you didn’t come on like no preacher or nothin’. I can get into it. You ain’t heavy or nothin.”

“Do you know anything about the Baptist faith?”

“Yeah, sure. I seen Elmer Gantry.”

John winced visibly. Michelle continued, “What is Love. Love is the morning, and the evening star. . . ” She stood up on the garden bench mocking the movie, playing out the scene.

John laughed, and waved her back down to the bench, “OK, OK, you’ve made your point. Did I come across like that?”

“No, you were good last night. You were, like, talking with us, not at us, you know?”

“Yeah, I know. What were you two talking about when I came up?”

Sharon spoke up, “Michelle was asking me about the Rosary. I was explaining to her how to incorporate Mary’s immaculate heart into the prayers.”

“Oh, I see,” John said. “What about the ‘Our Father,’ thing?”
Sharon explained, “In the ‘Our Father’ the words are, ‘.. . and lead us not into temptation.’ I was explaining to Michelle that God, the Father, would never lead his people into temptation. The Devil does that. God allows us to be tested, but he personally does not trick or lead us into anything evil. When
Matthew wrote his gospel, he wrote the words of Jesus in Hebrew, and the rest in Greek. The translation is impossible, but the meaning is there, if you know how to look.”

John eased back. He wanted to ask more questions, but he didn’t want to appear stupid, and he really didn’t buy into any “hearts,” immaculate or otherwise. “Sharon, I was looking at that little Rosary you gave me. I don’t really understand how you can justify the repetitive prayers you say. Do you know what I mean?”

“Well, yes, and no. You don’t like the prayers, or the fact that they are said over and over again?”

“Well, let’s just start with the repetitive nature of the Rosary. I think we can work on that for a while.”

Sharon reached into her jean pocket. John held up a finger quickly and said, “Not the gum! Every time I see that blasted gum. . . ” She laughed and pulled out a roll of breath mints.

“All right,” Sharon began. “You can’t see repetitive prayer. John, is your mother still alive?”

“Yes, she is.” He knew she was circling him, but he didn’t care. It was a pleasure just watching her work her argument up.

“When you go to see her, do you tell her you love her?”

“Yes, I do.”

“Does she get angry with you if you remind her several times in a day that you love her?”

“Well, no, I suppose she wouldn’t get mad. But if I said it fifty times, she might get a little irritated.”

“Well then, have you ever had a favorite song? Something you heard that was so good that you ran to the record store and you bought a copy, and you took it home, and you just wore it out! You loved the song so much you couldn’t hear it enough. And, after it was gone, even years later, the song on one of the ‘oldies’ stations would still bring a tear to your eye, you loved it so much. Ever done that?”

“Well, yes, I suppose everyone’s done that.”

“That’s how much our Lord loves his children to pray. He never tires of the song. And, if the prayer, repetitive or otherwise, brings the person praying peace and consolation, can you imagine how much more peace and joy it brings our Lord when he hears it. And, he hears all of them John. The earth is one continuous prayer going up to heaven like beautiful aromas. They are presented to Jesus like a beautiful basket of flowers by Mary.”
Her arguments were never arguments. They were expressions of love. Her total lack of aggression put John in a mode of acceptance, and yet he could not accept her doctrines. She sat there and looked at him. As he looked into her eyes the appearance of her face seemed to mellow. There were no lines in it. She was like a child who had just eaten a bowl of ice cream and was happy with it. They were sitting in a physical garden, and now she was gently taking him by the hand and leading him into a spiritual garden.

He opened his mouth to speak, but she spoke first, “John, we were chosen before the beginning of the world. The Lord, our God chose you and I to be in this particular garden, at this particular time for this particular purpose. Do you know what the purpose is, John?”

His great theological answer that he’d been working up flew out of his mind. All the could say was, “No, I don’t.”

“And I can’t tell you. I wish I could, but I can’t. You have total freedom of will, John. That’s one of the greatest miracles. God creates creatures that can do what they want, and he won’t force you to do anything. All he gives is his Spirit to help
guide you, but only if you listen. If you have ears, you will hear. You must listen to the Holy Spirit, and he will tell you why you are here. All that I can tell you is that we are both here by the will of God.”

Castro/Gillum…Is This the Democrats 2020 Ticket

Sat, 10/27/2018 - 9:04pm

“I’m likely to do it. I have a strong vision for the country. I believe that our country’s going in the wrong direction and that it needs new leadership. I’ll make a final decision after November, but I’m inclined to do it.”

– Julian Castro in a recent Rolling Stone interview on his probability of a presidential run in 2020

My fellow Floridians please listen up…we cannot vote Tallahassee Mayor Andrew Gillum in as our next governor for some very important key reasons. Reason number one…his platform. If elected Andrew Gillum has promised to make Florida a sanctuary state; he’s promised a one billion dollar business tax increase (which equates to roughly 40%) to help fund his “medicare for all” nonsense thus forcing many existing businesses to close and others to stay clear of Florida; he wants to do away with school choice policies; he’s joined forces with those wishing to abolish I.C.E. and also stated he wants to do away with Florida’s ‘Stand Your Ground’ law; he supports either taking our guns away or at the very least to heavily restrict their ownership; he wants even stricter environmental regulations; and he’s part of the impeach Trump crowd.

Also, under Gillum’s mayorship, Tallahassee…Florida’s capital city…has garnered the dubious distinction of being number one in the state in crime, with Mr. Mayor doing little except to hire a few more officers to try and help solve the still escalating crime numbers, ignoring both police and sheriff’s departments numerous suggestions on how to permanently bring those numbers down.

But more importantly is reason number two…as I believe we Floridians are being “played” by gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum and his handlers. How so…by his using Florida as a stepping stone to becoming Julian Castro’s running mate in 2020, and that this entire scenario is being orchestrated by Barack HUSSEIN Obama and funded by George Soros. And why do I believe this…because the Democrat hierarchy believe that a minority driven ticket might be the only way they can retake the White House in 2020.

Now let’s add in that Julian Castro recently announced that he’s “likely” to challenge Donald Trump in the next presidential go round. And with Castro being all about minority entitlement as is Gillum just imagine what a team these two characters would make…the socialism-wanting Hispanic former mayor of San Antonio, Texas and former HUD secretary in the Obama administration who still has some questionable actions in his background concerning seven-figure “seed money” for his first mayoral campaign (If chosen for HUD, Julian Castro’s work, big payday could face scrutiny)…coupled with the socialism driven, gun control touting, currently under an F.B.I investigation concerning ethics violations (Mayor Gillum faces ethics complaint over NYC trip) black mayor of Florida’s capital city…a minority “twofer” jackpot if ever there was one.

And a ticket of this make up would surely see the ever increasing minority vote going solely into the Democrat’s column for we all know that when push comes to shove no matter a person’s qualifications or lack thereof, color and ethnicity unfortunately does still matter to many and does so to such a degree that it becomes the sole deciding factor in how they will cast their vote.

Truly sad indeed…just ask Republican former Secretary of State Gen. Colin Powell how well his ‘I’m voting for Obama because his skin color is the same as mine’ vote worked out for our country.

Now let that reality really sink in folks…the reality that the ever increasing minority vote would be locked up for the Democrats based for the most part on skin color and ancestral origins alone with white liberals joining in on that vote as a one-sided minority ticket would serve their progressive agenda well. And with two socialist leaning candidates promising both illegals and society’s what I call “sponges” even more “free stuff” in exchange for their votes…in other words “redistribution of wealth”…they and others of the “gimme-gimme you owe me sorts” would flock to the polls in record numbers, while it’s we on the other side of the political aisle who would be footing the bill via tax increases to the nth degree.

And while some will counter by saying that in no way would two southern males ever comprise a presidential ticket…neither a Democrat nor a Republican ticket…I say it indeed could happen especially on the Democrat side when and if they felt that demographics alone could be used to their advantage. And for the Democrats the 2020 presidential election if played right, as in if they can garner the vast majority of minority black and Hispanic votes…via a Castro/Gillum ticket… they unfortunately do stand a chance of taking the White House back.

Yet another reason why voter I.D. must, before the next presidential election. become the law of our land for if the ever-growing number of illegals continue to be allowed to vote; if the dead still make it to the polls or have their vote tallied via absentee ballots; and if Democrats are still voting more than once; the outcome of said election truly might not be to our liking.

And with Hillary Clinton and her infamous blame game having basically ruined the Democrats chances of getting another woman to this time lead a successful Democrat presidential ticket, and with 2020 fast approaching and their supposed woman front runner (MA) Sen. Elizabeth Warren having been exposed as a fake Native America (read about that in Elizabeth Warren…A 100% Real, Genuine Fake Indian); the other women contenders of note like Kamila Harris who is but a grandstanding joke as easily seen by her theatrics during the Kavanaugh hearings; and debate hedging N.Y. Sen. Kristin Gillibrand all might not be the Democrat masses palatable cup of liberal tea.

So why not two men from the south if their ethnicity would serve the Democrats and their agenda well…with color and ethnicity in the 2020 election being way more important to them than where logistically the candidates chosen come from.

And know that I have been warning folks for years about Julian Castro, his agenda, and his foibles. Please read my previous article, If Not Hillary Then Who: The Truth Exposed – Part 2, to see just what I’m talking about for this man…a man still being groomed to someday be president by Obama’s very handlers…was in serious contention to be Hillary Clinton’s running mate, and that alone should tell you a lot about the man.

Briefly, Hillary Clinton so wanted uber liberal HUD Secretary Julian Castro as her running mate and Julian Castro wanted desperately to be her running mate. Young, dynamic, and most importantly Hispanic, Castro would have been the perfect pick to bring in the Hispanic and millennial vote. But as the decision was at the cusp of being made in his favor, Castro committed a big no-no when he violated the Hatch Act…an act that prohibits federal employees from engaging in political activity while in their administrative role. And this Julian Castro most assuredly did when in an April 2016 interview with Katie Couric, Castro said he was supporting Hillary Clinton’s presidential aspirations while discussing HUD programs in his official capacity as its secretary..

And that ended a Hillary/Castro 2016 ticket but left open the possibility of a Castro run in 2020 for Julian Castro knows well that the masses have short memories when it comes to political faux-pas, especially if it relates to someone they consider “of color.”

And so now we have entering center stage a dynamic young black man who is hoping to become Florida’s first black governor…a black man with faux-pas of his own…including the fact that as per public records he failed to disclose (until caught) two mortgages on legally required financial disclosure forms going back to 2014, along with the above stated current ethics violations and possibly more…faux-pas he hopes the masses will overlook now in 2018, for if he wins and then with having two years of governorship under his belt, Andrew Gillum could easily become Julian Castro’s 2020 Vice Presidential running mate…a minority dream team from liberal hell.

And these two men with decidedly socialist agendas have already formed a mutual admiration society of sorts. Not only did Julian Castro hold a fundraiser for then primary candidate Andrew Gillum, but he also has now officially endorsed Gillum in his Florida governors run. Saying of Castro’s endorsement, “It is an honor to have his endorsement as we continue sharing our vision for a Florida that works for everyone,” more than hints at Julian Castro also having a specific “vision” for Florida…a scary thought indeed for maybe a foundation for a future presidential ticket might just have been born.

“The world can feel scary enough, without so-called leaders inciting fear for political gain.”

– Andrew Gillum speaking about then candidate Donald Trump at the 2016 DNC Nominating Convention.

And so Andrew Gillum, yet but another once community organizer whose rise to national prominence happened only after he spoke at the 2016 Democratic National Convention…parallels Obama’s infamous rise to power which only happened after he gave the Key Note speech at Billy-Boy’s second nominating convention. And now he has Julian Castro…an avowed socialist with presidential aspirations whose mother just happens to be one of the founders of the militant anti-American chicano group La Raza…and who not so coincidentally also gave a key speech at the same convention in 2016…in his corner.

But the question is why would Julian Castro…the man who serves on the board of Voto Latino and a man who thinks predominately in terms of brown and black entitlement alone…come out publicly in support of a man whose governor’s race might or might not go as hoped for? Because if it does go as hoped for Andrew Gillum then in his position as governor could help a then presidential candidate Julian Castro turn the swing state of Florida ‘blue,’ and would do so most assuredly if together they ran on the presidential ticket in 2020…a scary thought indeed.

So planning, or should I say “plotting,” ahead of time never hurts, but I’m sure a presidential ticket with what amounts to two socialists comprising it would have our Founders and Framers turning over in their graves as their beloved republic, if this ticket won, would become not even a “pure” democracy but a socialist supposed utopia where we Americans would all be equal…equal at the bottom rung of the economic ladder that is.

And so the bottom line is this…Andrew Gillum…the progressives darling and Mr. “If we don’t kick Republicans out of office they’ll repeal Obamacare,” whose main “in the open campaign financier” is uber liberal California billionaire Tom Steyer, is not someone we need as Florida’s next governor…his above stated platform and agenda alone should tell all Floridians that.

But of paramount importance is the fact that Andrew Gillum appears to be in the process of being “groomed” for “bigger things” than just Florida. And his recent debate on CNN with his Republican opponent Ron DeSantis showed him to be virulently anti-Trump and an Obama clone…whose endorsement he also has…proving that the only way to stop those “bigger things”…as in a 2020 VP slot and possibly the top slot in 2028…is to stop him from becoming governor now. Without the governorship under his belt the chances of Andrew Gillum being the Democrats VP nominee in 2020 or beyond go way down to almost zero, and the one thing our country surely does not need now or in the future is Obama part 2, especially when part one could very well be Julian Castro, a very politically dangerous man in his own right.

From the Mind of a Dumb Ole Biker From Alvin, Texas – Pipe Bombs

From the Mind of a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas – Pipe Bombs

With at least ten pipe bombs having been delivered I wonder why there’s no video evidence in a city blanketed in Security Camera’s? Surely there’s video evidence on the carrier or carriers that delivered these packages especially at the locations these packages were delivered to.

According to the news briefings these packages were delivered by the postal service. They seem to deliver pipe bombs and bills a bit better than checks. Why weren’t the stamps marked by the postal services before the deliveries? Seriously, these people really think we are that stupid. No cameras, no postal markings, good grief! I can’t walk down the street of my little town without being on a camera somewhere.

This is just getting funny now, a play right out of Saul Alinsky’s play book. Rules for radicals 101. These people supposedly knew what they were doing. Really??? There’s a clock with a black wire going out to one side and a red wire going to the other side. A real genius to figure out a two wire hocus pokus piece of garbage. Nothing in between to actual detonate the device. Seriously, I mean really look at it. It couldn’t of detonated if they wanted it too. Yes this is a political sham. A disgrace and disservice to our great country. And you know a democrat sent them because like every thing else the democrats do, it didn’t work!

And now the Democrats claim that Republicans and President Trump promote violence. Let’s just recap the last two years, shall we?

Tim Kaine – “fight in the streets against Trump.”

Joe Biden – I Want to ‘Beat the Hell Out of’ President Trump

Nancy Pelosi – “collateral damage ok”

Eric Holder – “when they go low kick them”

Barack Obama – “argue with neighbors, get in their face.” and “we need to punish our enemies”.

Kathy Griffin – holds Trump’s decapitated head

Alec Baldwin – ”We Need To Overthrow The Government”

Loretta Lynch – video calls for “march, bleed, and die in the streets.”

DNC Speaker Sarah Silverman – called for a military coup against President Trump.

Madonna – tells women’s march that she fantasizes about blowing up the White House.

Rapper Snoop Dogg – holds a toy gun to the head of a clown dressed as President Trump.

“Bang” Rapper Little Bow Wow – “we pimp your wife and make her work for us”

Tom Arnold – called on fellow Democrats to threaten Barron Trump when Melania takes him to school.

Robert DeNiro – F**k Trump!

Peter Fonda – “We should rip Barron Trump from his mother’s arms and put him in a cage with pedophiles”

Rick Wilson went on MSNBC early in Trump’s campaign and said “Go Out and Put a Bullet in Donald Trump”

Demonic p
Democratic Attacks:

Steve Scalise shot at baseball game.

Rand Paul, attacked by his Democratic neighbor.

Susan Collins receives letter with “suspicious substance”

Adam Laxalt’s campaign manager assaulted

Republican Headquarters in Laramie set afire.

Shane Mekeland (House candidate) attacked, suffers concussion.

Sarah Anderson House candidate punched

But Hey what do I know, I’m just a Dumb ole Biker from Alvin, Texas.

<BREAKING NEWS>
I’ve seen more Democrats in the last month abandon the stupidity of their own party.

Sanctuary Maternity Wards a Leftist Success Story

Fri, 10/26/2018 - 9:56am

Some readers may have thought my recent column on anchor babies was more alarmist than the situation warranted. After all, many pregnant women complain when they have to get up from the TV to go to the bathroom. So how many illegals are realistically going to waddle across the border to give birth on the Sammy side of the street?

Daryl Cagle, CagleCartoons.com

(Isn’t it strange no one ever asks what kind of mother would abandon her baby rather than take it home with her?)

California’s total for anchor babies is 65,000 a year, followed by Texas’ 51,000 and Florida’s 16,000. Birthright citizenship in the US is a government–endorsed scam that allows Latin American mothers to sign their children up for the best welfare programs, much like wealthy New Yorkers put their infants on the waiting list for the best schools.

The entire grift could be ended tomorrow if either President Trump issued an executive order ending citizenship for illegals born on our side of the border or if our so–called Republican Congress passed a law mandating the same. The fact nothing has been done gives you an idea of how important discouraging illegals is to Congress.

Today’s other follow–up involves food. If food bureaucrats had any honor they would acknowledge the war on hunger has been won, put current programs on auto–pilot and then go make the millions in the private sector we’re assured they could make, if the ‘pubic servants’ weren’t so dedicated.

You can judge the size of the victory over hunger by going to the nearest shopping mall and counting the people who aren’t fat. Bonus points if you can find someone who’s not chewing.

Instead of celebrating their victory the calorie–pushers instead went looking for more enemies. Instead of hunger, they now fight “food anxiety.” This is a slippery term that covers essentially everyone that has ever wondered if the drive through at McDonalds will still be open when he gets there. The term can’t be quantified so there is no danger of the bureaucrats winning this war and seeing a consequent reduction in jobs and funding.

The second enemy was the “food desert” and it’s also part of the mission creep cavalcade. Food deserts don’t describe an actual desert where there’s no food. Instead it’s a geographic area devoid of grocery stores where government elites would feel comfortable shopping. It’s a snob’s wasteland where the man–on–the–street can’t pronounce “quinoa.”

The Washington Post was on this crisis like green on cilantro. Beverley Wheeler, director of DC Hunger Solutions, warned readers, “Grocery-store access is a racial equity issue that must be dealt with, and it’s a health issue. We can no longer pretend we don’t see what we see.”

What that means is that food deserts caused obesity. This never made sense to me. It would stand to reason inhabitants be thinner since the hungry had to walk farther to find food, just as one doesn’t find fat camels in the Sahara. Government jumped on this scam, too.

Crony capitalists used it to subsidize grocery store companies to build in favored areas. The non–profit parasite crowd started advocacy groups that would cause food deserts to bloom after being given only a few million tax dollars.

And then guess what happened? As Tamar Haspel, WaPost food columnist, recently wrote, “No, food deserts don’t cause obesity.” Tamara Dubowitz, admitted “because access was a social justice issue. [The belief] wasn’t based on evidence because there wasn’t any evidence.”

The War on Food Deserts began because it would produce more government spending and the term generated sympathy. That’s all that was needed to commence hostilities, because for the left emotion always trumps evidence.

If you don’t believe me, ask Justice Kananaugh.

Hate

Fri, 10/26/2018 - 9:12am

The politics of hate is ripping our body politic apart. Blind hate is not new. The civil war is often referred to as the war of northern aggression. I want to ask right off, outside of Fort Sumter, an action in which the federal government took control of a crucial American stronghold from a group of men who had occupied it under the pretense of secession, who attacked whom first? Now I know some of you want to think that the occupation at Sumpter was justified, but how many of you would back an effort by a Mexican group who, having declared independence from the United States, occupied Fort Hood in Texas? Would the entirely defensible act of reclaiming that property be an act that could be described as aggression? Of course not! As a matter of fact that is precisely why seven thousand people cannot just kick down our fence and walk into our sovereign nation.

Some of you may be shaking your heads. Some of you may feel that is a flawed analogy. For my part, I have read “War, For What?” and a few other books and articles that, while well researched and written are merely entertaining; kind of like alternative history novels.

The truth is, as it is in our times, as it has always been and shall always be, a few wealthy people turned those of us with common interests against each other. Let me put it another way; If you are reading this article you and I probably have similar interests regarding the preservation of our great nation, and making sure that future generations of Americans have the same chances that we had. It’s likely though that the cut of my jib, or the trim of my sail might put you off. I will never forget coming back to my classroom after lunch the day Kennedy was assassinated; it was a Friday, the sun was bright, and Thanksgiving vacation was nearly upon us. We were children living in the greatest country of any age, and the future lay before us like a golden road.

When I entered the classroom I didn’t even notice that the picture of JFK had been defaced. Someone had smeared red paint over the top of JFK’s head and blacked out his eyes. Our teacher, Mrs. Murray, left for the office in a hurry to find out who was responsible. Strangely one thing sticks with me. It was unnecessary for Mrs. Murray to place anyone in charge of the class when she had to leave; that’s how well regulated society was in the middle class back then. We never found out who committed that cowardly act, within moments of her departure there were shouts and screams echoing all over the school. I remember feeling numbness when we were told. We heard the news right there in front of the symbolically murdered picture of our president, who, as far as I can understand, did nothing whatever to earn such hatred.

That’s right, hatred. Blind, unreasoning hate. What else could it be. What motivates people to do such a thing? Yeah, I know, wah, wah, wah, right? Wrong! We all pay for hate; want some proof? Ok, how’s this: following the constitutional disaster of Bush v Gore, the Republican party controlled all three branches of the government and had a hammer lock on the fourth estate, this condition lasted for eight long years. Nearly every member of congress elected since then has been so as a result of their commitment to stop Obama. Well, how’d that work out for y’all? Happy? What did you get for your efforts in electing people whose campaign rhetoric is decorated with hate? Roe v Wade been turned back? Immigration fixed? What about freedom of prayer in the schools? Nope. The rich are richer, and the poor are significantly poorer. It’s time we admitted that hate is a tool that is all too effective at dividing us.

Do you realize that when a bill goes before congress that it has zero, that’s right ZERO chance of passing unless it has the backing of at least one billionaire. That’s a fact folks. Hate is what put Obama in office for his second term. After crapping all over the folks who elected him the first term based on his campaign promises, his base rallied once more to put him ahead of Mitt Romney based on ideas that marched right up the partisan divide. When I hear partisan I think of men and women whose country was devastated by an invader fighting the enemy, not my next door neighbor who decorates his yard with campaign posters featuring a candidate from the other party.

People, we need to work together to halt the disease that ravages our beautiful country. We must put unreasoning hate behind us and make a constituency that represents all of our neighborhoods. After all, are we Americans, or are we not? When I think of how Hillary took down ACORN, a populist agency that promoted not liberal ideals, but rather voter awareness and registration, when I think of how uncaringly she said that medicare for all was not on the table. Well what we got was the end of the last organization that truly represented all stripes of America, and Obamacare.

We are in a pickle. If we continue to remain fractured as we are then Khrushchev’s white paper on how to defeat America comes true. He famously said, “We will bury you!” We cannot endure in a society that is paralyzed, passing down to our children not a conundrum, but a disastrous collision with reality; if we do they will curse our memory, and we will deserve it. With pipe bombs being mailed to political opponents we must understand that the civil war is over. The south must stop trying to rise again. AMERICA needs to rise again. If we do not work together to save it this great nation will pass from this world, and future generations will know nothing of the good that is in our hearts.

BANG! You’re Dead!

Thu, 10/25/2018 - 11:29am

BANG! You’re dead! Nothing like a pipe bomb to clear the air. You may or may not have heard, and if you haven’t then you’re living under a big yellow rock, but SOMEbody has taken it upon themselves to take OUT the most obnoxious mouths in the Democratic Party, and one Robert Dinero as a bonus. President Trump is condemning all of this, but of course he has to, and calling for calm. Calm! Calm? How do you stay calm with a bomb in the mail?

The democrats are all appalled. Getting the press secretary thrown out of a restaurant didn’t appall them. Calling openly for violence against people wearing MAGA hats didn’t appall them. Counting every beer the Supreme Court nominee ever had didn’t appall them. Killing the unborn by the millions and selling body parts didn’t bother them at all. But trying to off a flock of losers that nearly destroyed the entire country, now they’re appalled.

Right now, as I type, there are thousands of “refugees” racing for the Texas border “just because.” As an added attraction there are militias on said border waiting on them and believe they taste just like chicken, and folks like me sitting here with a bag of popcorn waiting for the show to start. The democrats did this! They got their politically correct, slightly black president, and he handed America its ass. Well, some ticked off constituent just tried to hand Obama HIS ass!

Eight years of the Obamanation has devided our country into two armed camps. Explosive political debates have evolved into real explosives. No one is civil anymore. No one is willing to go halfway on anything. All the elections, the very voice of the people, are suspect, and disrespect for the president is a mark of excellence for people who never took civics in high school. BANG! We’re dead.

Now, I’m gonna have to get all mealy mouthed for a moment and say publicly that I condemn violence, and yada, yada, yada, so the FBI doesn’t come a calling, but I ask a simple question. Democrats, with your radical rhetoric did you not see this coming? Each morning my Alexa reads me the news. I listen to it all. The reason I do this is so I can piece through the liberal left’s mind. It’s all hate. Not one bit of civil speech there. The president smiled at a rally. He ate a Big Mac. Then they put on that blonde with the big boobs, and she foams at the mouth for ten or fifteen minutes, proving that she didn’t take civics in high school either.

This is the brave new world the democrats have created. We now behave like a banana republic, and we can’t even grow bananas. I have followers who actually think that democrats are a race! I must admit, they do all look alike. I know it’s the democrats who are mailing all them there bombs. I mean, just look at it. Like everything else the dems do, the bombs don’t work. There’s been what, five, six? Not one has gone off yet. The Austin bomber had the entire state of Texas refusing FedEx packages, and then blew his DAMN self up. Now THAT was a bomber! The good news is that the blue wave is becoming a blue swirl. Even the democrats are getting tired of the democrats. Hey! Midterm is coming democrats. BANG! You’re dead!

Viva Max!

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 11:06am

Viva Max was an old movie about a has-been Mexican general trying to secure his honor by taking back the Alamo. Until the assault by George (Pee Pee) Bush that was about the biggest danger the Alamo had faced since 1836. Now Max has given his crown to a whole new herd of wetbacks. Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning for every freebee they can lay their illiterate hands on.

So what’s the big deal about the so-called “caravan?” Well, to begin with there is always a caravan. This isn’t anything new. Wannabes have been jumping the fence since Pancho Villa was in diapers. Back in the Wild West days there wasn’t a big concern about migrants “migrating.” All the nortés up in Texas’ forty-nine bitches imagine the Rio Grande is a raging torrent a mile wide. Nope! Looks like a creek. When I crossed it in Laredo little Mexican boys were under the bridge on either bank (yes EITHER) with big funnels held up for the turistas to throw change into.

There was, and are three cultures on the Texas/Mexican border. Texas, Mexican, and Tex-Mex. Before the current hot button issue of illegal immigration came about migrant workers would routinely come across, pick oranges for a season, and take the money back to madre. Now, of course, with the introduction of the cartels, this laid back common sense lifestyle is a thing of the past. Although the familiarity of the three cultures still exists, things have changed. If you don’t believe that just let your little girl walk to the mall tonight in her shorts. You won’t do that, will you? Doesn’t matter if you’re in Laredo or Lincoln, Nebraska. Things have changed.

So, why the sudden interest in the events on the border that have always been there? Politics! The Democrats, pushing to take control of Congress have slated this as THE thing to watch. It’s called “misdirection.” Penn and Teller uses it all the time. Look here, don’t look there. It true matador fashion, they waved a red cape at Donald Trump, and like a raging bull, he charged. Those things sticking out of his back are called “banderillas.” During the 2016 campaign Trump ballyhooed about a wall. He doesn’t understand Mexicans, but he will after the first fourteen year old Mexican girl sprints over the top of that wall like she’s got good sense. Don’t hurt her, she’s being hired as a housekeeper.

So now the Democrats are scaring the BeJESUS out of all the white folks, and more than a few black ones too with stories about this band of wild-eyed bandidos screaming for the border. Well, if they make it, which isn’t written in stone, they’ll have to stand in line behind the wetbacks who are already there! Not to mention the cartels will probably kill a lot of them on the way and steal ALL the women. I think the age of consent in Mexico is right after the doctor slaps your ass.

So while the republicans are paying attention to the border the democrats are slowly gaining ground to flip the House, if not the Senate also. As Michael R. Shannon so artfully pointed out this morning in his article “Nov. 6th is the Day Conservatives Go On Strike” in the Tea Party Tribune, the so-called “Republican Majority” hasn’t really done a damn thing in two years but cuddle up to Head RINO in charge, Mitch the bitch McConnell! So stop worrying about the Dems taking over congress. They already have. They did it two years ago.

None of the news coming out of the caravan is accurate. The Main Stream Media is all over this story because it’s a hot button issue. It don’t mean a damn thing, but it’s hot, and for such as CNN, MSNBC, and The View, that’s all that matters. The ladies on the view, being well past their prime, had to find a hot button SOMEwhere.

Trump is learning politics. I hope he has learned enough not to play into democratic hands by sending the First CAV from Fort Hood to the border. Governor Abbot needs to take the clipboards away from the five hundred National Guard he sent to the border and give them guns . . . loaded ones. And allow such as C. J. Grisham, and others to mobilize the militia. This sort of sane, controlled response is all that is required to stabilize the situation. A situation that is roughly the same since Max took the Alamo, no matter how many “caravans” you hear the MSM going on about. Viva MAX!

Does America really want Socialism?

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 10:52am

https://frankaquila.wordpress.com/2018/10/21/does-america-really-want-socialism/

Each election, the American people must choose the future direction of America. The Democrat Party represents a vision of the socialist/communist movement of government control and the Republican Party represents a vision where government is “limited”, through capitalism, as mentioned in the U.S. Constitution.

According to a YouGov poll, nearly half of millennials would rather live in a socialist society than a capitalist one; but 71 percent could not identify the differences.

So what exactly is the difference between capitalism and socialism?

Capitalism is an economic system which allows private individuals or corporately owned companies to produce products, distribute, and compete for their own economic gain allowing the free market forces to determine the price of products or services based on the desires of the consumer.  The economic system is based on the premise of separating the government from the activities of the private sector.  Capitalists believe the free markets are efficient and the role of the government should be to regulate and protect the system without interference from the government.

Socialism is known as the first stage of transition from capitalism to communism as suggested through the theory of Karl Marx, who is known as the “Father of Communism.”  It is believed that there are inequalities that exist in our society and that the profits of production and distribution by the capitalist should be shared with the community. The government, therefore, oversees the redistribution of wealth to the community and determines the investment, prices, and production levels.  In socialism, the government owns the means of production.

To understand socialism, look no further than Venezuela.  This country was once a rich and resourceful country; but now the people are poor, crime is high, and people are starving.  The government is corrupt and the people are protesting in the streets wanting a return to capitalism and individual freedom.  In Nicaragua, President Daniel Ortega is accused of massacring hundreds of protesters whose economic futures have been destroyed by his socialist economic policies.  Ironically, Socialist Democrats are protesting capitalism in the streets of America wanting socialism with demands to spread the wealth through higher taxes, free handouts, and government control with policies that ultimately lead to poverty and death.

Capitalism has created American greatness through “limited government” where our U.S. Constitution limits the power of the government through the “right of the people.” The government, therefore, can only do those things authorized by the people through representation since the government receives its delegating power from the people, making government limited in its power to the people, which were the principles of the founders of America.  However, we see government officials offering “freebies” as an enticement to give up individual freedom for more government power.

If socialism was applied to school and each student received the same grade, where would be the incentive for students to excel in their classes?  We would create a society where those that want to achieve would be limited, creating a less motivated class of people.  Capitalism motivates people to be anything they can be and to be rewarded for hard work.

While America is a young nation, America has led the world in business, innovation, and industrial growth.  How?  Since the government was limited, individuals were free to invest and develop many companies known throughout the world including Coca-Cola, McDonalds, and Apple to name a few.  Walt Disney created Disneyland.  The Wright Brothers created the first air-flight.  Thomas Edison created the light bulb.  Henry Ford created the first car.  These are just a few inventors of many in American history due to capitalism.  Each of these people did not have government interference.  Each of these inventors and businesses, not government, created jobs for other Americans.  Other socialist nations like Albania, Algeria, Angola, Burma, Congo, Cuba, Ethiopia, Laos, Somalia, Vietnam, or Yemen have not contributed innovation or business for their people.  To the contrary, the people are poor without opportunity, relying on a government that can take everything or maybe even your life.

The Democrat party was not always socialistic.  Socialist began their movement in the 1930’s.  By the 1960’s, communists joined socialist within the leadership of the Democrat Party to transform America.  The Communist Party has achieved their goal, transforming the Democrat Party into a Socialist Party with the philosophy of Karl Marx, who proudly proclaimed, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need.”  Using this Marxist philosophy, the Democrat Party has led America toward the socialist path and adopted the goals laid out in the Communist plan to take over America.

Socialism only appeals to those who want to receive more than they contribute.

President Thomas Jefferson warned Americans of socialism, “A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.”

The Electoral College: The Vote Equalizer v. Mob Rule

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 10:42am

“A small number of persons, selected by their fellow-citizens from the general mass, will be most likely to possess the information and discernment requisite to such complicated investigations.”
– Alexander Hamilton’s words in Federalist #68 in defense of the Electoral College

Civics lessons are boring I know, but sometimes a civics lesson is desperately needed especially in a contentious political season. And with the all-important midterm elections fast approaching, and with the midterms actually being a referendum on not only President Trump’s agenda and policies, but most importantly on the 2020 presidential election itself, a civics lesson might not be so boring after all. So let’s start this article with the fact that in today’s America without the Electoral College being kept in place the blue states of California, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, and Michigan would most likely be deciding each and every presidential election.

Thankfully our Founders and Framers had the foresight to look towards the future and realize that population strongholds… especially those with a decidedly biased political party leaning… must never be the determining factor in the outcome of any given presidential election. These wise men understood that to serve the needs of the entire country presidential candidates needed to build both campaign platforms and agendas with a national focus in mind, and so it was decided that all citizens no matter where in our country they might live must be part of a leveled playing field when casting their vote. This realization of what is actually “voter equality” is basically what led our Founders and Framers to create the Electoral College.

In fact, during the debates over the Constitution’s framework, Alexander Hamilton was one of the first to support the concept of an Electoral College with his saying that electors would bring “greater wisdom” to presidential selection as these men would be “most capable of analyzing the qualities adapted to the station and acting under circumstances favorable to deliberation, and to a judicious combination of all the reasons and inducements which were proper to govern their choice,” while other of the Constitution’s Framers viewed the Electoral College as the definitive protection of state power.

And how so…by the very process in which the electors themselves were chosen and in how their votes were cast. As per the Constitution, “Each State shall appoint, in such Manner as the Legislature thereof may direct, a Number of Electors, equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress.”

Simply stated, each individual state sends electors of their choosing to the Electoral College with each state having one elector for each Representative and one for each Senator with Washington DC allowed three electors as established by the Twenty-Third Amendment. Today that choosing is usually done by the major political parties nominating electors at their state conventions or sometimes choosing them by a vote of the party’s central committee.

And our Founders and Framers hoped that those chosen would cast their vote to stop the election of any candidate they felt would have “threatened to centralize power in the federal government” and thus take power away from the states as this would then be something that would go against the very concept of our newly formed republic.

Remember always that our country was set up to be a republic and not a democracy…which you can read about in my recent article Republic v. Democracy…America v. Mob Rule…meaning that the Electoral College was needed to help assure that our country remain a republic.

And so our Constitution’s actual Framers created the Electoral College as a compromise between electing the president via a Congressional vote or via the “popular vote” as they instead wisely decided to equalize the interests of both the high and low population states, thus making each state and each vote equal to the other when it comes to voting for president. And in 1788, Article II of the Constitution…which also established the executive branch…was put into place. And Article II has been amended three times via the Twelfth, Fourteenth, and Twenty-Third Amendments…on June 15, 1804; in July of 1868; and on March 29, 1961 respectively.

Now having put into place a system where the (what is today 538) members of what was to be called the Electoral College would be the ones to determine a presidential election’s final winner and loser, our Founders and Framers officially cast aside the idea of a so-called “popular vote” ever determining presidential elections…voting numbers that today would usually equate to the five aforementioned Democrat dominated states. And know that in the era of modern day politics it’s only been the Democrat party…the party that constantly loves to talk about equality…who wants to do away with the Electoral College and its call for voting equality as they simply cannot deal with the fact that they had to lick their wounds not only with Bush v. Gore in 2000 but had to do so again in 2016 with Donald Trump trouncing Hillary Clinton in that all-important Electoral College vote.

So the Electoral College has now become to the Democrats part of the enemy front…the other part being Republicans and Conservatives in general…that denied them their ability to give Barack HUSSEIN Obama via Hillary Clinton his third term in office and hence it must be done away with.

But whether the Democrats like it or not the Constitution is still the law of our land, and as per the Constitution the person who receives the most electoral votes (today that number is 270) becomes the next president even if they do not receive a “plurality” (the total number of votes cast for a given candidate who receives more than any other candidate but who does not receive an absolute 51% majority) or an absolute “majority” of the “popular vote.” This is exactly what happened with Richard M. Nixon in 1968 and Billy-Boy Clinton in 1992, when both men won the most electoral votes while receiving just 43% of the popular vote.

And what most folks forget is that every third party candidate and every fringe candidate’s numbers must also be tallied into the total votes cast, thereby making it nearly impossible for any one candidate to garner the needed 51% majority of the “popular vote”…the very number needed to be the “majority” winner. And it’s about time that sore loser Hillary Clinton and her assorted ilk, no matter their bloviations to the contrary, must accept as fact that she only received a “plurality” (48%) not a “majority” of the vote as third party and fringe candidates took the remainder of that much needed three percent number, thus denying Hillary from ever reaching a true “majority.”

Simply, Donald J. Trump received 304 Electoral College votes and 46.09% of the “popular vote” (62,984,825 votes), and Hillary Clinton received 227 Electoral College votes and 48.18% of the “popular vote” (65,853,516 votes), that is if you count the illegal vote, the dead vote, and those who voted more than once.

But seriously, abandoning the Electoral College in favor of someone winning the presidency with only a “plurality” of the “popular vote” would see a cacophony of fringe candidates entering the race solely to deny major party candidates, whose agenda they do not agree with, from being elected…or worse…doing so in the hope that they themselves could drive such a deep wedge between the major party voters…after all what are they but spoilers…that they would gain for themselves a “plurality” even if it’s only by one vote.

So while the Democrats and of course some wayward Rinos are currently trying to do away with the Electoral College, know there are other reasons why it should remain in place besides the critical way in which it levels out the voting playing field. And some of those other key reasons are that the Electoral College helps to negate demands for run-off elections; it sometimes helps to give the president-elect a mandate and thus more credibility; it encourages political stability via a reasonable certainty as to how the government will run according to which party the president-elect comes from; it helps to maintain a system of national representation for without said Electoral College presidential candidates would spend their time campaigning only in high population areas instead of equally across the nation; and it allows the minority vote to possibly sway an election, something you’d think the Democrats would like.­

However, they don’t, and it’s only because Donald Trump will probably win reelection if the Electoral College is kept in place. But if it was replaced with a national “popular vote” the Democrats surmise that a Democrat candidate would stand a much better chance of becoming president especially with Democrats currently outnumbering Republicans by 12 million registered voters…with 40% being Democrat, 29% being Republican, and 28% being Independent. And dare we not forget that the aforementioned illegals most assuredly vote Democratic…freebies and handouts are truly a big lure after all.

So the bottom is this…the Electoral College must stay in place not only because it was designed to solve the problem of population distribution when voting in a presidential election, but also because without it our republic would surely be gone to be replaced by the Democrats version of democracy…in other words “mob rule.”

End of yet another important civics lesson…boring I know but oh so critical at this juncture in time especially with 2020 drawing ever so near.

Want To Buy A Bridge?

From the “You can’t make this stuff up” Department:

It is beyond me how the Communists, I’m sorry I mean the Socialists, oh excuse me I mean the Democrats are able to peddle the bilge they’re spewing this election cycle.  But I’m sure that a significant segment of the voting public will swear this bilge is rose water come Election Day.   Now if these Soros-Clinton-Pelosi-Waters supporters were knuckle-dragging drooling Neanderthal types I could understand it.  However, I personally know many very intelligent people who prove they’ve had one too many drinks of Kool-Ade by casting their precious votes for the Party of Obama and the new normal.

And now for some anecdotal proof:

I live in a State that is enjoying record high employment, has received the biggest tax cuts in history, has a balanced budget, millions in a rainy day fund and is ranked near number one in education and healthcare.  In response to this the Pelosi Party has a gubernatorial candidate who says people are starving to death in the streets, rotting away on gurneys in the halls of broken down hospitals, and the pining away for the good old days of presidents who bow to kings and a perpetual Great Recession.

Nationally the party of globalism, open borders, and mobs as always promises one thing and plans on delivering another.  They promise to fight for the little guy, protect Social Security, provide health care for all, and rainbows every day of the week.  If given control of the House and/or the Senate they will deliver years of Kavanaugh style show trials and though their leader tells them not to talk about it they will impeach President Trump in 2019.

Currently their propaganda arm in the Corporations Once Known as the Mainstream Media foist what they hope is a self-fulfilling prophecy of a huge blue wave on the low information voters.  To facilitate this fever dream and create a spectacle they hope will overwhelm our border agents, detention camps and legal system they’re financing and coordinating an army of gang-age males hiding behind the skirts of women and children.  Marching north after violently storming across Mexico’s southern border carrying the flags of Guatemala and Honduras the publicity flacks of the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel tell us over and over these are peaceful hardworking people are peaceful asylum seekers and not the gate crashing pawns we can see tearing down fences and forcing their way into Mexico.

Promising to raise taxes, increase regulations, expand welfare, shut down the oil and coal industries, impeach Kavanaugh and President Trump the campaign slogan for the America Last fellow-travelers should be “Let’s Make America Miserable Again!”  All I can say is if you buy this bilge I’ve got a bridge you can buy right here.

Democrats trying to keep Black America on their plantation

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 10:25am

https://frankaquila.wordpress.com/2018/10/13/democrats-trying-to-keep-black-america-on-their-plantation/

Kanye West gave President Trump a visit at the White House, proudly wearing his “Make America Great Again” hat and praising the president for his numerous accomplishments in the black community, including policies that have brought jobs to black neighborhoods, lowering black unemployment to an all-time low.

While Kanye showed love and appreciation for what Trump has accomplished, it goes against how the liberal media and Democrats expect Black Americans on the Democrat plantation are expected to behave and think.  Therefore, news reporters stated, “Kanye West is what happens when negros don’t read.” They called him an “Uncle Tom”, “ignorant”, and with “mental issues”.  Tara Setmayer, a political commentator for CNN stated, “He’s a token negro of the Trump administration.”

In their own version of modern day slavery, the white liberals and rich black Democrats, through the liberal media, are upset that a black man is not supporting the people they told him to support.  After all, only nine percent of Black America voted for Trump, and with Trump now boasting approval of 36 percent in Black America, that spells trouble for the Democratic slave owners of Black America. How will they be able to keep blacks dependent on government through welfare programs?  How will they compete against the Republican ideals of school choice to allow black families to take their children out of failing schools?  Every major city in America is run by Democrats owning the black vote while the black community lives in poverty.

A lesser known black man is my friend, Darren Johnson, who as a marine had no fear of going into the black community and telling the real truth of the Democrat party.  Darren felt it was his obligation and mission to inform those who are uneducated about the history of the Democrat party.  He told them the Democrat party founded the KKK and fought against every single legislative policy that provided them the rights they have today.  He points out that Abraham Lincoln was a Republican that fought against slavery, while opposed by Democrats.  He points out that Martin Luther King was a Republican fighting for civil rights, opposed by Democrats.  And when the Democrats realized that it was inevitable that blacks were going to vote, President Lyndon B. Johnson stated, “These Negroes, they’re getting pretty uppity these days and that’s a problem for us since they’ve got something now they never had before, the political pull to back up their uppityness. Now we’ve got to do something about this, we’ve got to give them a little something, just enough to quiet them down, not enough to make a difference… I’ll have them niggers voting Democratic for the next two hundred years”.

Since that time, the black community has been enslaved by the same party that lynched their ancestors.  The Democrat party is fearful of losing those who they have controlled.  They try to intimidate, threaten, or shame any black American that thinks for himself to rely on their vote.

Kanye West has broken his Democrat chains stating, “I’m not out of control.  I’m just not in their control.”  Welcome to the Republican Party Kanye.

Republic v. Democracy…America v. Mob Rule

Wed, 10/24/2018 - 9:43am

“Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for lunch. Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the vote”…we are “A Republic…if you can keep it.”
– Benjamin Franklin after the Continental Convention when asked if we are a republic or a monarchy

The Greek historian Polybius wrote that democracy descends into mob rule…“ochlocracy” he called it. And Polybius’ words were as right then as they are right now for we can see mob rule…two more words added to the Democrats ever growing list of politically incorrect words we dare not say…becoming commonplace in today’s America as Democrats and their misguided ilk take to the streets in protest, as if on cue, over some self-perceived indignation while they relish in trampling on other folks “inalienable rights.”

“Inalienable rights”…Constitution granted rights…have been replaced by ongoing “outrage” from the left with their incessant political polarization helping to divide Republicans and Democrats even more so along strict party ideological lines. And to make matters worse, what was once but Democrat partisan apathy has now morphed into all-encompassing overt hate of any and everything Republicans in Congress propose coupled with a special kind of all-consuming targeted hate against any and everyone President Donald Trump nominates no matter the position he nominates them for.

Total political dysfunction and major meltdown by the Democrats to the nth degree…a true political circus of the absurd…replete with at times violent protests by those who still cannot accept that Hillary Clinton did not become Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s third term in office. And these protests more times than not see protesters bused-in when and where they are needed…professional protesters if you will…protesters bought and paid for by George Soros and his ilk whose job it is to incite violence by working up via intimidation what was peaceful protesters into an angry mob and to do so in the name of democracy…their twisted version of democracy that is.

Calling themselves “the resistance” as they scream and spew that “this is what democracy looks like,” the sad fact is that in a way they are right…up to a point that is…for what is democracy but government rule by the majority of its people…and if that majority is made up of mobs than so be it. And in today’s volatile political climate if one is not part of the current media anointed majority then threats, accusations, lies, and when needed…violence…is used to turn the fearful, the gullible, and the weak into blind followers of what amounts to mob rule…with it being critical that the majority must not be restrained in imposing its will on the minority.

But these “resistance” sorts do forget that America was never set up to be a democracy…what some call or refer to as a “pure democracy” where the people themselves not elected officials vote on all matters of great concern to them…but that America was set up to be a republic…a federal republic*…where the true power lies within its own citizenry who vote for elected officials who they feel are best suited to represent both their wishes and wants, who while at the same time must be responsible to those who elected them, and who most importantly must govern according to the law…Constitutional law that is. And in the republic that is America most importantly of all is that We the People’s “inalienable rights” cannot be taken away by the government even if that government has been elected by a majority of voters.

In fact, some of our Founders and Framers were truly leery of democracy for they feared that overt and dedicated political passions could work the public up into such a frenzy that in a very short period of time it could become paramount to mob rule and abject tyranny. “Democracy never lasts long,” wrote America’s second President John Adams in a December 1814 letter to Virginia state legislature member John Taylor. “It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There never was a democracy yet that did not commit suicide,” were Adams’ words added for he blamed democracies…which he felt were no different than monarchies…for bloodshed and war.

Alexander Hamilton, one of the authors of the Federalist Papers, wrote, “We are now forming a Republican form of government. Real liberty is not found in the extremes of democracy, but in moderate governments. If we incline too much to democracy we shall soon shoot into a monarchy, or some other form of a dictatorship.” In fact, in the last letter he ever penned Hamilton actually warned that “our real disease is Democracy.” And James Madison, our nation’s fourth president and the “father of the Constitution” wrote in the Federalist Paper No. 10 that, “Pure democracies have ever been spectacles of turbulence and contention; have ever been incompatible with personal security or the rights of property; and have in general been as short in their lives as they have been violent in their deaths.”

In other words, our Founders and Framers were leery of both the concept of democracy itself as well as its ever being the form of government our new nation was to take. And leery they were to such a degree that they placed into the Constitution itself Article IV, Section 4 which states, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government.” “Republican” as in “republic” not in the Republican party in case the question arises…which I’m sure some liberal sorts will raise in their effort to remove from governance the very document from which our nation was born.

So while the uninformed…which encompasses the vast majority of Democrats…keep clamoring that with America being a democracy…they absolutely refuse to accept the fact that it is not…that they still have the right to protest via any means they themselves see fit. And while we all have the right to protest under the First Amendment as it gives us the right to free speech, but, and this is critical, the First Amendment itself puts the breaks on violent protest via its words, “the right of the people to peacefully assemble.”

“To peacefully assemble”
in no way means the now mob tactics being used by the left that either borders on or actually is violence…tactics that not only help to stir the pot of political discontent via bullying, threatening words, and hate…but are tactics that truly do border on both the traitorous and the criminal. How so? Calling for the “removal” of our duly elected president and now Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh as well, and doing so while gathered in protest while screaming the words “by any means possible” surely does not meet the Constitution’s nor the legal definition of “peaceful assembly” for words such as these are a precursor to violence…mob violence.

And while mob violence is sadly indeed a part of “pure democracy,” and while it’s been said that “One man’s mob is another man’s democracy,” neither mobs nor “pure democracy” works well within the framework of a republic. And maybe to some it’s simply a case of word semantics but I don’t think so for sometimes in order to drive home both a specific point and a fundamental political difference it actually involves labeling people, things, and actions for who and what they truly are.

And in the case of what’s happening in today’s America as both actual mobs and mob mentality continue to overtake civility and decorum, and doing so all in the name of what the Democrats refer to as democracy, maybe President Trump needs to put a clear and precise label on who these violent Democrats…now sometimes called progressives or socialists…really are…as well as on those that dare to even hint and/or suggest that violence and intimidation be used against the rest of us.

In fact, I think maybe our president should label this vile faction of the Democrat party the “New Brown Shirts” for their tactics are surely not unlike the Brown Shirts of the 1930s…Hitler’s paramilitary sorts whose method’s of violent intimidation aided in his rise to power. And really isn’t power what these vile Democrat sorts want…power so all encompassing that never mind our republic being thrown by the wayside but their version of democracy being done so as well to be replaced by Obama’s socialist dream…something it seems most Democrats have wanted all along.

And after this faction of today’s Democrat party is rightfully named maybe then President Trump can retweet out Lindsey Graham’s famous words used during the Democrat’s witch hunt of Brett Kavanaugh…rightful words to the effect that we should never let these people obtain power. And if apathy does by some chance take hold as the midterm election draws near…apathy on our side of the aisle that is…and we don’t get out the vote then we must seriously consider the possibility of a future where the most powerful socialist/communist state in the world is not Russia or China, but is these United States…for this is the wanted future envisioned by the very radicals that have taken over the Democrat Party and it’s a sad future indeed.

And it seems, at least on the surface, that this is where we are headed for the republic that we are has been replaced in Democrats minds by a democracy that we are not. And when mob mentality dictates how the political game is to be played, and where every political setback is deemed by the Democrats as a criminal act done by we on the other side of the political aisle…the Republican and Conservative side…along with their believing that any who dare not embrace their liberal mindset is but a foreboding of some catastrophic event that will signal the end of the very democracy that we are not, then you just know we as a country are once again in for some troubling times.

Donald Trump to the rescue as together we Republicans and Conservatives have new reasons to unite against those who don’t even know who we are as we work together to “Make America…to help make our republic…Great Again.”

Top Ten Reasons Liberals Know They’re Lying

Tue, 10/23/2018 - 11:59pm

Top 10 Reasons we know liberals are aware of their lying in public debate:

  1. A researcher conducted a study of 10,000 debates with liberals, and found all liberals prevaricated and told lies in every political debate. About 20% of Republicans did so, too.  “Atlas Shouts” is the book to read.
  2. Socialism is based on a series of lies which ignore the history of all mass murderers being socialists, massive corruption, and lies in their media. This was so obvious, it used to be taught in American public schools.
  3. When American schools stopped teaching how socialists lie, the left started lying much more frequently.
  4. When Obama, the first trained Alinsky activist, became president, lying on social media become the dominant form of leftist debate tactics. This is documented both as an Alinksy tactic, and a by observers of social media.
  5. If a person recites a claim which can easily be proven to be a lie, but they don’t know it, they aren’t technically a liar, but the moment they become aware, then change the subject to ignore the truth, then they have proven they are not interested in truth.  They are technically a liar at that point.  Liberals all exhibit a rapid evasion of facts proven against their case.
  6. Despite having enough solid knowledge of policy to write a 5 star book, I have never won an argument over policy with a liberal.
  7. No Conservative I know anywhere has ever won a debate with any liberal, which is impossible, unless lies are being used.
  8. I’ve made hundreds of offers on social media, seen by tens of thousands of people, offering $25 to anyone who can find a liberal who will debate honestly, and no one has even tried to the money.
  9. Many famous authors have noted liberals routinely lying, with motive:

    * “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” —Upton Sinclair

    * MLK said “Nothing in all the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

    * Ayn Rand wrote: “The hardest thing to explain is the glaringly evident which everybody had decided not to see.”

    * “How strangely will the tools of a tyrant pervert the plain meaning of words.”  – Samuel Adams

    * “Far more crucial than what we know or do not know is what we do not want to know.” – Eric Hoffer

  10. The tactics of deception in liberal policy debate are easily confirmed by watching for signs of prevarication. There are 11 tactics detectives look for.

Nov. 6th Is the Day Conservatives Go On Strike

Tue, 10/23/2018 - 2:53pm

Republican incumbents are getting nervous as election day approaches. And for good reason. The political party of the left, Democrats, has energized its base while the country club conservatives in the GOP have euthanized theirs.

Sean Delonas, CagleCartoons.com

Evidently the strategy is to rely on muscle memory to get conservatives to the polls, because the so–called accomplishments certainly won’t.

Confirming Supreme Court justices who are rumored to be conservatives isn’t a Senate accomplishment, it’s Trump’s accomplishment. Curator of the Senate Mitch McConnell had nothing to do with Trump’s victory. McConnell was one of those incumbent nose–holders who viewed Trump as something of an embarrassment when compared to DC’s refined caretaker conservatives.

Which is also McConnell’s attitude toward the conservative base.

Without Trump there are no justices for McConnell — head of Senate human resources — to rubber stamp. The other ‘accomplishment’ is the tax cut. Tax cuts are not why Trump was elected. All the GOP candidates claimed to back a tax cut.

Trump won because he pledged to stop illegal immigration and reform what passes for legal immigration.

Here’s the Republican Congress’ record on issues that matter to conservatives:

No funding for the wall.

No expedited deportation of illegals

No requirement for E–verify

No English as official language.

No end to funding Planned Parenthood

No repeal of Obamacare

No cuts in federal spending

Here’s what Sen. Chuck Schumer (D–Antifa) says about the GOP Congress, “If you would’ve told me this year that we’d be standing here celebrating the passage of an omnibus bill, with no poison pill riders, at higher [spending] levels …than even the president requested, I wouldn’t have believed it. Almost anything the Republican leadership in the Senate achieved this year, they achieved on Democratic terms. … Democrats had an amazingly good year.”

The housebroken conservatives’ record these past two years is so abysmal that even the very polite Christians at First Things magazine have noticed. Phillip Jeffery quotes from a series of interviews, “We’re tired of being treated like our issues are of secondary concern.” If an issue ‘can’t be solved with a new tax rate,’ the establishment seems not to care.” “By her account, the electoral power of the pro-life movement does not match the level of attention it attracts from conservative leaders.”

That’s putting it mildly. And now comes a last gasp attempt to save their jobs that proves just how stupid the cocktail conservatives in Congress think we are. Paul RINO plans to introduce a bill that fully funds construction of the wall, contains Kate’s Law and targets sanctuary cities.

The best part is they plan to vote on it AFTER the mid–term elections. Leadership says this makes the election a “referendum on immigration policy.” I call it a cynical ploy to save their candy behinds. These clowns have been in office almost two years. Only the specter of looming defeat motivates them to act on Trump’s number one agenda item.

If they were serious about illegals, the House would pass a hardline bill today and send it to the Senate.

McConnell would stop dusting the furniture long enough to bring the bill up for a vote. Then he brandishes his dust mop and forces Schumer to conduct a traditional filibuster if Chuckie wants to block passage. Voters would see the left is prepared to stop government to protect illegal alien criminals at the expense of taxpayers.

That would make the mid–terms a genuine referendum on immigration. Under the gutless, craven ‘leadership’ we now have in Congress this will never happen.

It’s high time the conservative base did something that will attract “attention …from conservative leaders.” That means going on strike on election day. Conservatives are at least 30 percent of the GOP base. They can’t win without us.

When you go to the polls, or vote absentee, vote for whatever wretch is on the Republican line for Senate. For the House — unless your representative is a member of the Freedom Caucus — cast a write–in ballot for “On Strike.”

Yes, this means some acceptable GOP incumbents will be defeated, but their loss will send an unmistakable message to the RINOs in the Senate: Conservatives expect action now!

Nothing will change in Washington until we change the composition of the Republicans in Congress and put the fear of God into the barnacles that manage to hold on to their seats. Losing the House in the short run will be a victory in the long run.

In 2020 conservative voters can return and vote for new conservatives and chastened conservatives of convenience. We can take back the House and continue to control the Senate. But only in 2020. In 2018 Republicans don’t deserve your vote. They deserve your contempt.

LBTG and Sometimes Q

Tue, 10/23/2018 - 10:47am

Scrolling through Facebook, reading posts (God! I knew better) and I ran across this LBGT nonsense:

HOUSTON WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON DRAG QUEEN STORY TIME WHERE MEN DRESS UP LIKE FEMALES AND TRY TO INDOCTRINATE OUR CHILDREN?

Wow! Where do I begin? I suppose definitions are in order. Back in the day we had male, female, straight, and queer. The queers objected to the “Q” word so it was updated to “gay.” This effectively put an end to the “Gay 90’s” and “Gay Paree,” but you win a few, you lose a few. Later we come upon the LBGT community, taking in Lesbians, Bisexuals, Gay, and a newly organized transsexual group. Last, but not least, the plain ol’ queers came BACK out of the closet and a dusted off “Q” was added to the end giving us the LBGTQ movement, supposedly encompassing all manner of sexual activity save normal sex between opposing parties with vastly different equipment. It is interesting to note there is no “D” in there for drag queen, but the day ain’t over yet.

Now, I’m not going to use the word “deviant” here because one man’s meat is another man’s poison, but I will explore mindsets a bit. Years ago I had a friend who was briefly assigned to personnel in a large company in Austin. He was the usual cowboy type, so rare in Austin these days, but took on the responsibility of interviewing the applicants with an open mind. During lunch on day he opened that mind to me.

He told me that he would come across an applicant with very good scores on our tests, excellent work record, good communication skills, STATS, and even passed the drug test, also so rare for Austin. Most would come right into the company and begin to work their way to the top. Others, however, when my friend would extend his hand to welcome them, would shag back for a moment and tell him there was one thing he needed to know. They were gay!

He looked at me with that confused Texas look we get when you come across a statement that fits together about as well as someone asking you to pass the piano, please. “What if I,” he reasoned, “were to apply at a company, pass everything, and just before they hand me the employment agreement I say, ‘I feel it’s only fair to tell you . . . I like to screw women!”

I like the old style classic queers. Truman Capote, Liberace, my brother in law from my first ex-wife. We all knew they were a couple bubbles short of plumb, but it was just a mild amusement, all except in Lampasas, it sucked there. Got my ass kicked there for long hair, but I digress.

Now we have the LBGTQAAEWWSII. Lesbian Bisexual Gay Transexual Queer And Anything Else We Wanna Stick It in. Anything but a woman. Sodom and Gomorrah ain’t got nothing on these cats, and as in the Beatles classic, they DO it in the road . . . and before children in schools and public libraries.

I know, I know, someone will hit me with why do I claim their sexual orientation has anything to do with reading stories to kids? Reading stories is fine, but a drag queen reading stories dressed up like the bride of Frankenstein is an entirely different matter. Some kids are scared of clowns, for God’s sake. I was scared of Miss Hornbuckle, my eighth grade home room teacher. How to you think a kid’s gonna react to a man in a dress with horns sticking out of his head? Is that a subliminal? Horny perhaps?

Stupid is as stupid does. No matter what some psychologist may tell you, kids are predominantly gender neutral. I was eleven years old before I realized that Donald Duck didn’t wear pants. Now, I WAS sweet on Tinkerbelle, though I didn’t know why. But by and large what happened below someone’s waistline was none of my concern.

The underlying focus of this transcendentalism is an effort to gain children’s acceptance of all facets of the human condition therefore preparing them for future interactions with multiple levels of society. In light of that, might I make a suggestion. As Loretta Lynn sang, “Oh, let’s go all the way.” Why stop with sexual orientation? We have Klansmen, ANTIFA, Satanists, Westboro Baptist Church, and God knows a host of guys that really like little girls. Beastiality, now there’s a good one. The kiddos could fully understand what the big, bad wolf, being symbolic of the alpha male, was really after, and just why he was so intent on “blowing” the three “little” pigs. And if you think a drag queen would set ‘em back a little bit, if you could just imagine an Imperial Wizard standing up there holding a charred cross in full regalia singing The Killeen National Anthem! I mean, what’s wrong with anthems, or for that matter the Three Little Pigs? That’ll sure put those little buggers on the path to the dream of Lyndon Johnson and his Great Society.

Ok, let’s cut the crap! This kind of blatant sexuality to children is inappropriate. You need to keep your thoughts and desires between you and the one who has similar thoughts and desires FOR you, please make it an adult.

Just because you’re gay, or whatever, It doesn’t necessarily mean you’re automatically a pedophile, but with the #METOO movement out there trying to add letters to THEIR little acronym every day, anything is possible, and showing up for trial in a dress with horns sticking out of your head will sure put the drag in your little dog and pony show. Here come the judge and everybody gonna get NINETY days!
