Go with Your Gut!

Standard

There is so much going on ‘behind the scenes’ in Washington politics; so many accusations, so much gossip, so many media outlets (on the Right as well as on the Left) spinning your news so that it fits their editorial point of view — you are probably bewildered! ‘What can I believe?’ is the question of the day — every day!

What I see is two ideologies clashing and each one pushing their own narrative (which is, in the end, a mix of truth, lies, and wishful thinking) that will support their own version of ‘the truth’. I’m determined to ignore all of this “noise” and trying to focus on what ‘I believe in my gut to be the truth and the way through this obfuscation overload.

– I know that I’m a person who loves the concept of America as a strong, independent, sovereign, and wealthy nation.

– I know, in my gut, that President Trump honestly wants what I want: for America to be strong, independent and safe for American citizens of all races, ethnicities, religions, occupations, and viewpoints who support those goals.

– I know that President Trump is attempting to move America in what he sees (and I see) as the right direction and he’s doing it against an incredible amount of pushback by those who have chosen to see him as the enemy; I can’t help but believe that these opponents of a safer, stronger America would be willing to throw America into the ‘trash heap of time’ to further their own personal positions, beliefs, and aspirations.

It’s obvious that President Trump has made some missteps but don’t think for a minute that his message has changed or his determination has wavered.

I sincerely, for the good of our Republic, want President Trump and America to succeed and, as a result, I can’t possibly wish anything but bad things and failure for those who don’t share our vision for a strong, independent, sovereign, and wealthy America. I’m sure that sounds incredibly selfish to some but if you really believe in what you believe you can’t allow the opinions of critics or naysayers to throw you off course.

I know it’s a lot to ask of you to join me in ignoring the daily deluge of negativity from the media and the opposition, but I’m asking. Each of us has to firmly believe in what WE believe to be true, just, and right.

I do, and I’m not deserting President Trump!

One China! Maybe not for long!

Since 1979, America has towed the line over China policy. Not one time in those 37 years has an American President made or taken a phone call to or from the then President of Taiwan. Correction: Not one time . . . until NOW!

The American news-media is busily manufacturing an international incident.

It was the news-media that turned a simple congratulatory phone call from Taiwan’s president Tsai Ing-wen  (pictured above) to President-elect Trump, into an International incident and put the president-elect into a position where he had no choice but to fight back against the news-media’s hyperbole. Did they really expect Trump to say: “Hey! About all that stuff I said when I ran for president; I was only kidding?”

Make no mistake about it . . . the Liberal news media obviously did not want Donald J Trump to win his election and now after he did win, they will do everything they can to assure that he fails. That’s how stupid and egocentric Liberal journalists and commentators are! After a long 18 month lead-up to an election and after the American People have spoken up and elected Donald Trump, they still believe that their opinions and biases will make a difference to the American electorate. These people do not seem to understand that our newly elected president has millions of Americans rooting for him and wanting him to shake up the policies that have threatened the American economy and America’s very sovereignty.

Diplomats and politicians, Chinese as well as American, will eventually wake up to the fact that on January 20, 2017 there will begin a new era in American foreign relations. On that date when President-elect Trump becomes President Donald John Trump, the 45th President of the United States we will have a president who is proud to proclaim that he is an “America First” president. And it’s about damn time!

We may not be the richest country on earth (we’re #11, behind Hong Kong), but we are the most powerful, the most benevolent, absolutely the freest and, as far as most Americans are concerned, the very best!

Post-Election Angst on the Left

Standard

Some level of sadness and even depression are expected when a person who has hoped for and worked for an objective for an extended period and, in the end, is unable to attain that objective. The last week taught us that this is especially true if the ‘objective’ in question is either political or social in nature.

I believe that people who are not heavily invested in Liberal or Progressive thought are gawking with amazement, as I am, at the extremes those on the Left have gone to, to corrupt the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution into a justification for illegal assembly, lies,vandalism, social unrest and criminal assault.

Tomorrow (August 8, 2016) is a day of Reality Politics

Standard

Tomorrow the votes can finally be counted and, in spite of the spin the shameful news media has been giving this election, we will be able to proclaim a new United States President. My gut tells me that the election results will not be nearly as close as we are being told now.

Aside from my gut feeling there is this:

The Investor’s Business Daily/TIPP Tracking poll today, widely acclaimed as the most accurate presidential poll in the country over the last several years, shows that Donald Trump has a 2 point lead over Clinton. That’s nice to know — at least it is for those of us who have nightmares over the possibility of a Hillary Clinton win tomorrow.

Even without polling it is obvious that Donald Trump is hosting massive (20,000 to 30,000 attendees) crowds at his rallies while Hillary Clinton, by comparison, is drawing 2,000 to 3,000 attendees at her rallies (see the You Tube report here).

If you haven’t voted yet, tomorrow is your last chance. DON’T stay at home. Remember that the American public was gullible enough to give President Obama two terms to try and destroy our Republic — not voting will give Liberals, Democrats and Hillary Clinton supporters a chance to finish the job!

Join the dead! Vote for Hillary!

There may be some truth in it when Republicans say that something about the Democratic party just “doesn’t smell right.”

Department of Justice elections expert, J. Christian Adams, was on Fox News this morning and stunned Fox News Anchor Steve Doocy with the news that there are 4 million dead people on voter rolls across the country — that, of course, is limited to those they know about.

So who do these dead people vote for? Adams couldn’t say for sure but he provided anecdotal evidence that dead voters may favor Democratic candidates:

“Dead people are voting and it’s something this administration does not want to do anything about. They must like it. They must like who they are voting for… Now we have four million, four million ineligible and dead voters on American voter rolls according to the Pew Charitable Trust.”

 

What this Election needs is Clarity!

Standard

I concede that, before he became the nominee of the Republican party, Donald Trump was a bit of a playboy; acording to those who oppose him, he was not only a playboy, he was a womanizer. He loved woman and he may have sometimes made some unwanted advances toward them.

That was when Donald Trump was a multimillionaire real estate tycoon and he was free to say whatever he liked.

Today, years later, Donald trump is the overwhelming choice of Republican voters to be the next president of the United States. As president he won’t be perfect in his personal life, no president ever has been or will be. We all know that at least two modern era presidents, JFK and Bill Clinton, were widely known to aggressively pursue women, while in office. Did that make them bad presidents? Did that damage the country? I say no to both questions.

Is that what this election should be about? Again NO!

That is, however, what the Democratic party want’s it to be about because they are running on 8 years of failure in almost every category and, one has to believe that they see these last 8 years as a success.

We have an economy that has not seen the leadership necessary to dig its way out of the hole it went into because of 9-11, both Desert Storms, and bad decision making in the pre-Obama years. Not only did Obama not address our economic problems, he made them worse by creating an environment that led to the United States National Debt being the largest in our country’s history and by driving many companies out of the U.S. over taxes and regulations.

We have lost the respect of the world’s super powers; even that kid that runs North Korea ignores us.

We have the weakest military in decades at a time when it should be the strongest ever, to face the challenges of foreign aggression (i.e., Iran, Russia, and China.),

We have an unbelievable number of illegal immigrants in our country (estimated at 11.1 million for the 6th year in a row).

These are just some of our major challenges. Our next president will be either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Which one of them can best address and fix these important problems? THAT is what this election should be about.

Both candidates have personal flaws. They both have said things in the past, as well as during their election campaigns, that are considered by some to be repulsive. They probably have both committed acts in the past that most would find repulsive. We know, for certain, that one of them has jeopardized national security and, if that candidate were not running for president with the full support of the current president and the Justice Department, that candidate would probably be in a Federal Prison. That is not political bias, that is a fact.

So which one of these admittedly flawed candidates will be able to fix the important problems being faced by our nation?

I am admittedly biased toward a Trump presidency! Here’s why:

Donald Trump is a successful businessman and therefore it follows, a successful problem solver. There is no reason to believe that he will not be able to appoint the right people to address the country’s problems, he’s hired thousands of the best problem solvers. There is no reason to believe that he will not successfully interface with world leaders; some say he’s too brash and he will start wars but that is nonsense. Look at it logically, as weak and disrespected as this country has become under Barack Obama’s leadership we are still the most powerful military force on earth; there is no country that would be willing to face the complete destruction that would result from going to war with us.

According to her own proposals, a Hillary Clinton presidency: would be damaging to our economy; would do nothing to erase the National Debt; would only make illegal immigration more of a social and economic problem, would enhance Obama Care; and would probably create more dangerous international deals like the Iran deal. Hillary Clinton would, no doubt, be Obama v2.

When you vote in November, focus on the big, important picture, not on personality quirks

Give me that ‘Old Atavistic Nationalism’

Standard

GOPSlit

 

That’s what the New York Times calls Donald Trump’s brand of politics: “atavistic nationalism”, with roots as old as the party itself.” GOP leaders, they go on to say, “fear their party is on the cusp of an epochal split.”

(That’s what I truly love about the New York Times, and I’m not being sarcastic, they don’t allow you to get too far from your dictionary.)

The Times story was basically the same one dominating the news cycle this weekend, about that epic (excuse me, I mean “epochal”) split in the GOP that is threatening and terrifying those who choose to call themselves Conservatives.

A term that I love, used either by or about Donald Trump’s approach to politics is Commonsense Conservatism”, I saw that and said “Voila” (figuratively of course); that’s what was missing in Conservatism, common sense. I always use to hesitate to identify myself as a Conservative because most Conservatives are still piddling around with the “religious” Conservatism that was born in the 1960s and was ingrained by the 1980s. Religious Conservatism is in itself an oxymoron that was created to convince legislators that they have the right to interfere with social issues that have no reasonable link to the Constitution or to the major functions of the federal government.

Even outside of the ‘Religious Conservative’ context, the GOP has been making a fool of itself for the past 4 years by being unwilling or unable to keep the promises made to voters in 2012. These are the same voters who believed the promises and put Republicans in majority roles in the House and Senate with the understanding that, among other things, they will replace ObamaCare with something that gives the power over healthcare back to the people. That didn’t happen, in spite of the supposed “power of the purse” held by the majority of Republicans in the House. Not much else has been accomplished either to undo the damage that Obama, and his cadre of Liberal followers has done to the country and the Constitution.

Considering all this, a “split” in the GOP is almost inevitable unless the powers that be start getting in touch with and in tune with the commonsense Republican ideas that caused a majority of primary voters to flock to Donald Trump.
