A “Yuge” Moment in History: Trump’s Inaugural Address…Why He Hit it Out Of the Park

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice. – President Donald J. Trump, Inaugural Address, January 20, 2017

Here is the entire address, courtesy of Foxnews.com

Chief Justice Roberts, President Carter, President Clinton, President Bush, President Obama, fellow Americans, and people of the world: thank you.

We, the citizens of America, are now joined in a great national effort to rebuild our country and to restore its promise for all of our people.

Together, we will determine the course of America and the world for years to come.

We will face challenges. We will confront hardships. But we will get the job done.

Every four years, we gather on these steps to carry out the orderly and peaceful transfer of power, and we are grateful to President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama for their gracious aid throughout this transition. They have been magnificent.

Today’s ceremony, however, has very special meaning. Because today we are not merely transferring power from one Administration to another, or from one party to another – but we are transferring power from Washington, D.C. and giving it back to you, the American People.

For too long, a small group in our nation’s Capital has reaped the rewards of government while the people have borne the cost.

Washington flourished – but the people did not share in its wealth.

Politicians prospered – but the jobs left, and the factories closed.

The establishment protected itself, but not the citizens of our country.

Their victories have not been your victories; their triumphs have not been your triumphs; and while they celebrated in our nation’s Capital, there was little to celebrate for struggling families all across our land.

That all changes – starting right here, and right now, because this moment is your moment: it belongs to you.

It belongs to everyone gathered here today and everyone watching all across America. 

This is your day. This is your celebration.

And this, the United States of America, is your country.

What truly matters is not which party controls our government, but whether our government is controlled by the people.

January 20th 2017, will be remembered as the day the people became the rulers of this nation again. 

The forgotten men and women of our country will be forgotten no longer.

Everyone is listening to you now.

You came by the tens of millions to become part of a historic movement the likes of which the world has never seen before.

At the center of this movement is a crucial conviction: that a nation exists to serve its citizens.

Americans want great schools for their children, safe neighborhoods for their families, and good jobs for themselves.

These are the just and reasonable demands of a righteous public.

But for too many of our citizens, a different reality exists: Mothers and children trapped in poverty in our inner cities; rusted-out factories scattered like tombstones across the landscape of our nation; an education system, flush with cash, but which leaves our young and beautiful students deprived of knowledge; and the crime and gangs and drugs that have stolen too many lives and robbed our country of so much unrealized potential.

This American carnage stops right here and stops right now.

We are one nation – and their pain is our pain.  Their dreams are our dreams; and their success will be our success.  We share one heart, one home, and one glorious destiny.

The oath of office I take today is an oath of allegiance to all Americans.

For many decades, we’ve enriched foreign industry at the expense of American industry;

Subsidized the armies of other countries while allowing for the very sad depletion of our military;

We’ve defended other nation’s borders while refusing to defend our own;

And spent trillions of dollars overseas while America’s infrastructure has fallen into disrepair and decay.

We’ve made other countries rich while the wealth, strength, and confidence of our country has disappeared over the horizon.

One by one, the factories shuttered and left our shores, with not even a thought about the millions upon millions of American workers left behind.

The wealth of our middle class has been ripped from their homes and then redistributed across the entire world.

But that is the past. And now we are looking only to the future.

We assembled here today are issuing a new decree to be heard in every city, in every foreign capital, and in every hall of power.

From this day forward, a new vision will govern our land.

From this moment on, it’s going to be America First.

Every decision on trade, on taxes, on immigration, on foreign affairs, will be made to benefit American workers and American families.

We must protect our borders from the ravages of other countries making our products, stealing our companies, and destroying our jobs.  Protection will lead to great prosperity and strength.

I will fight for you with every breath in my body – and I will never, ever let you down.

America will start winning again, winning like never before.

We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders.  We will bring back our wealth.  And we will bring back our dreams.

We will build new roads, and highways, and bridges, and airports, and tunnels, and railways all across our wonderful nation.

We will get our people off of welfare and back to work – rebuilding our country with American hands and American labor.

We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.

We will seek friendship and goodwill with the nations of the world – but we do so with the understanding that it is the right of all nations to put their own interests first.

We do not seek to impose our way of life on anyone, but rather to let it shine as an example for everyone to follow.

We will reinforce old alliances and form new ones – and unite the civilized world against Radical Islamic Terrorism, which we will eradicate completely from the face of the Earth.

At the bedrock of our politics will be a total allegiance to the United States of America, and through our loyalty to our country, we will rediscover our loyalty to each other.

When you open your heart to patriotism, there is no room for prejudice.

The Bible tells us, “how good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

We must speak our minds openly, debate our disagreements honestly, but always pursue solidarity.

When America is united, America is totally unstoppable.

There should be no fear – we are protected, and we will always be protected.

We will be protected by the great men and women of our military and law enforcement and, most importantly, we are protected by God.

Finally, we must think big and dream even bigger.

In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving.

We will no longer accept politicians who are all talk and no action – constantly complaining but never doing anything about it.

The time for empty talk is over.

Now arrives the hour of action.

Do not let anyone tell you it cannot be done.  No challenge can match the heart and fight and spirit of America.

We will not fail. Our country will thrive and prosper again.

We stand at the birth of a new millennium, ready to unlock the mysteries of space, to free the Earth from the miseries of disease, and to harness the energies, industries and technologies of tomorrow.

A new national pride will stir our souls, lift our sights, and heal our divisions.

It is time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget: that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood of patriots, we all enjoy the same glorious freedoms, and we all salute the same great American Flag.

And whether a child is born in the urban sprawl of Detroit or the windswept plains of Nebraska, they look up at the same night sky, they fill their heart with the same dreams, and they are infused with the breath of life by the same almighty Creator.

So to all Americans, in every city near and far, small and large, from mountain to mountain, and from ocean to ocean, hear these words:

You will never be ignored again.

Your voice, your hopes, and your dreams, will define our American destiny. And your courage and goodness and love will forever guide us along the way.

Together, We Will Make America Strong Again.

We Will Make America Wealthy Again.

We Will Make America Proud Again.

We Will Make America Safe Again.

And, Yes, Together, We Will Make America Great Again. Thank you, God Bless You, And God Bless America.

As I was watching our 45th President, Donald J. Trump (man, that feels good to write!), deliver his Inaugural Address, several things struck me.

  1. He referenced the God of Abraham, Our Creator, several times.
  2. Unlike Obama, he did not make the speech all about him.
  3. He made a point of saying that it was a transference of governance of our country from the grasp of professional politicians back to where the Founding Fathers meant for it to be: the citizens of America.
  4. He spoke in glowing positive terms about America and its people.
  5. He acknowledged those who protect us: The Men and Women in Blue and our Brightest and Best.
  6. He pledged to stop the “carnage” happening in our streets.
  7. He told us average “forgotten” Americans that we will never be ignored again.

As you can tell, I thought that it was a wonderful speech.

Rhetorically speaking, it was soaring, optimistic, and encouraging.

Politically speaking, you could hear the sphincters of the professional politicians sitting behind him (especially the Liberals) slamming shut in unison, mimicking the sound of the cannons firing off one by one, after his address was over.

Trump told it like it is, telling Americans what we wanted and needed to hear, while simultaneously telling those ensconced in the Halls of Power that there was a “New Sheriff in Town” who was listening to the “townsfolk” who brought him there.

I loved it.

The Liberal talking heads did not.

They thought it was too militaristic. Oooooo.

They thought that it was too jingoistic.  Ahhhhh.

They, including a certain MSNBC Talking Head, thought it was anti-Semitic. Huh?

Hold on, Madcow.

How in the name of Dow Jones and all his little averages can paying due deference to the God of Our Fathers, the God of Abraham, be “anti-Semitic”?

You probably think that Jesus of Nazareth was just a Jewish Carpenter who went into His Father’s Business.

I happen to believe that the majority of Americans share my view about Trump’s Inaugural Address.

If you Liberals want to sulk, go grab the now-Former First Lady and sit around and watch each other sulk, as she did in front of a national audience at the Inauguration.

You and your friends. the “Special Interest Groups” now longer run this country.

“We are one nation.”

And, we are in now in charge.

The Leader of the Free World, United States President Donald J. Trump, said so.

(I do not believe that I am going to stop smiling for at least four years. Possibly eight.)

Until He Comes,

KJ

 

 

 

 

Inauguration Day 2017: A Day of New Beginnings

January 20, 2017

 

donald-trump-melania-trump-reutersI can remember the first time that I ever voted in any sort of election, local or national.

I was 22 years old and in my last semester at Memphis State University, now the University of Memphis.

An older gentleman named Ronald Wilson Reagan, despite insurmountable odds, had won the Republican Party Nomination to be their Presidential Candidate. During the campaign, he had won the hearts and minds of Americans with his unabashed patriotism, his infectious smile, his quick wit, and his knowledge of what made America great.

As I went into the voting booth, pulled the curtain behind me, and pulled the lever, I had the feeling that this could be the start of something big.

And, it was.

Under the presidency of Ronald Wilson Reagan, Americans got back to work, feeling a sense of pride in our nation that had not been felt for a long time. We had a President that we could be proud of. One who was not afraid to tell our enemies exactly who we were and what we would and would not put up with.

In fact, as he was being elected, Iran agreed to release American Hostages whom they had held for 444 days under a vacillating President Jimmy Carter.

Ronald Reagan made us feel good about ourselves and our Sovereign Nation and its role in world events. We knew that when he made a decision concerning foreign or domestic matters, that he was making it after great contemplation and with advice from the finest minds available.

Americans had a feeling of security and National Pride under President Reagan.

Feelings that Americans have been sorely lacking during the last eight years.

We knew that when President Reagan said something, that he was as good as his word.

We also knew that he had America’s best interests at heart in everything that he did.

Was he a perfect man? No.

There has only been One of those.

And, our present President-elect and Vice-President-elect will be praying to Him this morning before his inauguration.

How refreshing.

But, I digress…

Why are the majority of Americans so optimistic?

Perhaps it’s because, after this day, Inauguration Day 2017, the Washington Status Quo no longer applies to the Leadership of our Sovereign Country.

There will be no racially-divisive rhetoric, no allusions to the Marxism Axioms revolving around Class Warfare, no self-deification, such as

This was the moment when the rise of the oceans began to slow and our planet began to heal.

By the way, how’s that “Hope and Change” workin’ out for ya?

Instead, we will hear from a man who genuinely LOVES America and her people, instead of viewing us all as racist, misogynist, xenophobes.

What Trump did, with his refusal early in his campaign to “act more presidential”, was to implement a strategy.

Trump has always been a “people person”.

That is the reason that, when he was still a contributor to Fox News, he would speak to everyone in the building, from the maintenance crew, on up the ladder.

As Sam Walton, the Founder of Walmart, knew, you don’t inspire people by acting imperious and above it all.

“Mr. Sam”, until his health would no longer allow him to do so, would travel to Walmart Stores in his old pickup truck, with a tie and a baseball cap on, visiting the employees, in order to find out how his stores were doing.

He knew that the only way to be successful and to stay in touch with the public, was to be out among them, and speak to them honestly and directly, as one would speak to a friend.

Just as President-elect Trump did when he went on a “Thank You” Tour and as he continues his Daily Tweets to the American People..

The Political Establishment, of both parties, lost that concept, a long time ago.

Bypassing the borders to communication, historically determined by both political parties and the Main Stream Media, is a concept which I first witnessed being employed by a Presidential Candidate in the 1980 Presidential Election, the before-mentioned Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved effective for both men.

As the polls have shown, Trump struck a resonant chord in the hearts of Average Americans, living here in the part of America, which the snobbish Political Elites refer to as “Flyover Country”, but which we refer to as “America’s Heartland”, or, quite simply, “HOME”.

Why is Donald J. Trump so popular with average Americans?

The reason is very simple: WE WERE ANGRY AND WE FELT THAT NO ONE IN WASHINGTON, D.C.WAS LISTENING TO US.

Our palpable anger was one which had been building since January of 2009, when a Lightweight, who has as much in common with average Americans as a Martian would, was inaugurated as President of the United States of America.

That anger, a result of his anti-American actions and resulting policies, which have affected Americans’ daily lives, was then exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, intentionally distanced themselves from those who elected them to Congress in the first place.

Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remained mired up to our necks in an abysmal swamp of bills and taxes, living paycheck-to-paycheck, afraid to make a move, for fearing of drowning in an ocean of debt.

Seemingly forgotten, in all of the forgotten promises, made by Barack Hussein Obama, were the over-94 million Americans, who were no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.

You want to talk about anger and frustration?

Try looking for work, when you are over 55 years of age.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country.

It was anger that formed our country….an anger over being held captive to “Taxation Without Representation”…an anger which, as a prime example of history repeating itself, led Americans to choose a Citizen Statesman for their next President over a Professional Politician.

It is this anger, which also propelled Donald J. Trump to his victory in the Republican Primary Race…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo knew it.

That is why the Republican Establishment, at least some of them, wound up hitching a ride on “The Trump Train”.

If they had not accepted the reality of his Primary Victory, and the fact that Americans are angry, they would have gone down to defeat again in 2016.

They would have never achieved victory by once again trying to push the Jello of “Liberal Moderation” up a hill.

Hence, the failed campaign of Jeb! Bush.

In summation, the American people were tired of Political Correctness and anti-American political expediencies being forced down our throats by both political parties and trumpeted by their lackeys in the Main Stream Media.

Donald Trump, for all of his brashness and braggadocio, was a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wanted to become a public servant.

And now, the American People have given him the opportunity of a lifetime.

And, so far, through what he has accomplished even before taking the Oath of Office, he has demonstrated that he is up to the challenge.

This is a day of new beginnings,. It is also a day of returning to what has made America the greatest country on the face of the Earth.

During his actions since his election, we have seen Trump exemplify leadership ability and a concern for our country that we did not from his predecessor.

The man who will be inaugurated today, has already brought jobs to our nation, has actually saluted a United States Marine while boarding a plane and shook his hand and meant it, and has told an overflow crowd at a pre-inauguration event yesterday that it was not about him, it is about us. Instead of using the pronoun “I “repeatedly, Trump used the pronoun “we”.

Those on the left are still participating in National Temper Tantrum, as if they have the power to overthrow our Constitution and to prevent Trump’s Presidency.

To those special snowflakes who somehow think that they have the power to shout over all of us moves out here in America’s Heartland who made Trump the President of the United States of America, let me give you some advice…

Pick your dead posterior up, get a job, and move out of your Mom’s Basement.

It’s not about what you want anymore.

This is a day of new beginnings.

Welcome to America.

Until He Comes,

KJ

The Last Day

January 19, 2017

On January 21st, 2009, Barack Hussein Obama, Former Community Organizer and Former United States Senator from the state of Illinois, was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America.

I can remember the moment as if it were yesterday.

That was the apex of the Obama Presidency….a monument to failure which was rebuked on November 8th, 2016, when Americans said “enough is “enough”.

Americans should have received a clue as to the way that the next eight years were going to be, when Obama’s first act was to fund abortions all around the world.

Thus began the downhill slide away from American Exceptionalism and toward the abysmal mediocrity of a Socialism-inspired Nanny State Government under which we found ourselves hurtling downhill at breakneck speed before Donald J. Trump was elected president.
This journey, from the plateau of being the greatest nation on the face of the Earth into the abyss of mediocrity and false promises with Obama leading the way and his precious snowflakes following like a bunch of lemmings not knowing where they were headed but being driven by their very nature, promised to do what America’s enemies had never been able to do in our history, that is, turn The Shining City Upon the Hill into a Third World Barrio.

Obama’s foreign and domestic policies both reeked of purposeful obtuseness designed to make our citizens dependent on a “benevolent” Uncle Sugar and to alienate our allies and embolden our enemies.

Just like his signature legislation, the Affordable Care Act, as it was explained to us by the then-Speaker of the House, the Democratic Representative from the state of California, Nancy Pelosi, Americans had to elect Barack Hussein Obama as President before we knew what was in him.

And, just like Obamacare almost ruined the greatest Healthcare System on the Face of the Earth, Obama himself almost ruined the Greatest Country on the Face of the Earth.

Just like a high school kid buying a junker of a car from friend, on Election Day 2008, Americans received a high-maintenance lemon.

And just like the kid who bought that lemon, we have been paying out the nose ever since.

Since Barack Hussein Obama took office, we have been involved in several armed conflicts, more than any other president before him.

And, while he was deploying our Brightest and Best all over the globe, he was using them for the purpose of social engineering, instead of respecting them as the fighting men and women that they are.

Obama eventually moved from just experimenting with “social engineering” within our military, to attempting to change the traditional morality and value system of our country at large.

In other words, instead of accomplishing something commendable, such as sending a man to walk on the Moon, Obama will be remembered as the president who enabled men to go into the ladies restroom.

On a related subject, as he was criticizing and diminishing the role of Christian Americans in the day-to-day existence of our country, he sure as heck never missed a Ramadan dinner.

I’m just sayin’…

The First Lady, Michelle Obama, was busy as well.

She took it upon herself to attempt to tell Americans how we should be feeding our children and grandchildren, designing a school lunch menu to be distributed to the Department of Education, who, in turn, had schools serve lunches which did not even contain enough calories to power the young bodies of American schoolchildren for the entire school day.

Her school lunch program was a part of her fight against child obesity. The other part of the plan was an exercise initiative for school and home, euphemistically titled “Let’s Move!”

An initiative made ironic by the fact that it takes its creator two trips to haul… well, you know.

But, I digress..

The Holy Bible, in the Book of Proverbs, contained in the Old Testament, tells us that “Pride goeth before a fall”.

There has been no greater example in American History than that of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

His uncontrolled narcissism persuaded him time and time again that his personal opinions were held by the majority of the American people.

Take for example, his views on law enforcement and race relations.

Part of his job as President of the United States was to support our laws and to support those on the ground who enforce those laws every day.

When there were perceived racial issues between lawbreakers and Municipal Police Departments, 10 times out of 10, Obama came down on the side of the lawbreakers, instead of the police.

Obama not only let America’s Municipal Police Departments down, he let down the American people, as the racial division in our country is wider on this, his last day, than it was on his first day as president.

Our political ideologies moved further apart as well, as Liberals, buoyed by having one of their own in the White House, moved further to the Left Side of the Political Spectrum, taking the Democratic Party with them.

And, in that spirit, the Democratic Party nominated a Far-Left Ideologue in Hillary Clinton for their choice as the next President of the United States.

However, even after cloaking herself in a mask of Political Moderation, her true nature revealed itself and the American people rejected her in spite of the best efforts of the Main Stream Media, who were acting as the Democratic Party’s Propaganda Machine.

The thought of another 4 years under the failed policies of Barack Hussein Obama, being delivered to us in the shrill voice and demeanor of Hillary Clinton, was too much for average Americans to bear.

Standing up on our hind legs, we elected American Entrepreneur and Businessman Donald J. Trump, who mercifully will be inaugurated tomorrow

Despite his best efforts to radically change America into just another country, Barack Hussein Obama found out that the strength of America does not come from our political parties, nor from the area known as the Beltway which surrounds and includes the Halls of Power in Washington, D.C.

Rather, America’s strength comes from the faith, which anchors the daily struggles of average Americans, who, relying on our Creator, the lessons which we learned from our family, including our parents, our own common sense, and the sweat of our brow, are living our lives trying to provide a better life for our children and grandchildren, while being grateful for this Sovereign Nation which God and our Founders bequeathed to us.

The 44th President of the United States of America never understood this.

The 45th President of the United States of America does.

The Sun Will Come Out Tomorrow

It will be Morning in America.

And, it will be time to Make America Great Again.

Petulant President Pantywaist Pardons Traitorous Transvestite

January 18, 2017

bradley_chelsea_manning

As you read this post, boys and girls, just remember…Obama still has two days left.

Fox News Insider reports that

President Obama has commuted the sentence of Chelsea Manning, a US Army private imprisoned for leaking sensitive information to WikiLeaks, Neil Cavuto reported.

Ben Stein said Obama’s commutation of Manning’s 35-year sentence is proof that America is now seeing the “real Barack Obama”.

“[He is] an extremely left-wing ideologue… [and is] showing himself to be anti-law-and-order and… anti-military,” Stein said.

Manning, a transgendered woman formerly known as Bradley Manning, will now be released on May 17th, Cavuto said.

Stein noted that while he has commuted Manning’s sentence for leaking information that hurt the military, his party is consistently “screaming berserk about leaks that hurt Democrats.”

“This is the real Democratic Party that was, thank goodness, defeated in the election,” Stein, an economist and actor, said.

Fox News’ Lucas Tomlinson obtained the a readout of the commutation decision:

Chelsea Elizabeth Manning – Oklahoma City, OK

Offense: One specification of wrongful and wanton publication to the internet intelligence belonging to the United States; five specifications of stealing, purloining or knowingly converting U.S. government records; six specifications of willful communication of information relating to the national defense; one specification of willful communication of information in unlawful possession; one specification of willful communication of information relating to the national defense by exceeding authorized access to a U.S. government computer; one specification of willful communication of information relating to the national defense obtained by accessing a U.S. government computer; five specifications of failure to obey order or regulation; U.S. Army Court Martial

Sentence: 35 years’ imprisonment (August 21, 2013)

Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on May 17, 2017.

Former Pfc. Bradley Manning, is a certifiable wacko. That’s a medical term.

Even during his schooldays in his hometown of Crescent, Oklahoma, Bradley Manning clearly walked a different path than the other kids. He preferred hacking computer games instead of playing them, according to his former neighbors.   They also said that he was mouthy and hard-headed about politics, religion, and even about keeping religion out of politics.

He once derisively wrote in an e-mail, that his hometown had “more pews than people”.  While in school, Manning refused to recite the parts of the Pledge of Allegiance that referred to God or do homework assignments that involved the Scriptures. And if a teacher challenged his views, former classmates said, he gave them a bunch of lip back.

According to friends, Manning enlisted in the Army in 2007 in order to find some sort of direction for his life and to help to pay for college.

Somehow, he received a security clearance and trained as an intelligence analyst at Fort Huachuca, Ariz., before he was assigned to the Second Brigade 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum, N.Y.

While deployed in Iraq, he was far less than a model soldier, receiving reprimands twice, once for assaulting an officer. He even wore custom dog tags that read Humanist…and he kept a fairy wand on his desk.

Per an article on wired.com, Manning said that he was lip-syncing to Lady Gaga as he downloaded all of the documents to WikiLeaks.

I really do not wish to even think about what he might have been wearing at the time.

Manning was arrested for leaking classified information to unauthorized persons.

He was brought into custody in Kuwait in June of 2009.

Manning’s Pardon is Obama’s way of “flipping the bird” to our Brightest and Best.

For 8 long years, Obama has been America’s Armed Forces Commander in-Chief (unfortunately). The responsibility for everything that happened during this time to the men and women serving in our armed forces, in which some part of our federal government was involved, both during and after their service, falls on his shoulders and his alone.

Through his treatment of our Heroes as “ancillary” servants to be used for social experimentation and budget cutting, while he was using  their money to further his socialization of America, Obama placed our Armed Forces in an untenable situation.

I have related before about my own Daddy and my Uncles, and their service in World War II. I have also had friends that served over the years, and one who is still serving in the Air National Guard.

All of these men were/are Patriots. They enlisted out of duty to God and Country.

Our Brightest and Best, who wear the uniform today, are no less dedicated. They deserve to be treated with respect, not as pawns in a game of political expediency, whose rules including social experimentation, political correctness, and blatant disrespect by the Commander-in-Chief..

I wonder if this anti-American President and his administration were secretly pleased that the leaking of classified material had the possibility of succeeding in doing what their Foreign Policy was aimed at all along….moving America from her position of Protector of the Free World to just another country.

I’m not saying that Obama wanted to put any of our military or covert operatives in harm’s way to achieve that purpose.  But, given the rhetoric that we heard coming from this administration for 8 years, I do not think that they viewed America being taken down a peg or two by Manning’s treason as necessarily a bad thing.

Gather all the information concerning their reaction at the time to the leaks for yourself.  It’s an unavoidable conclusion.  Classified documents were being leaked and those pinheads were making  jokes about it and seemed to be taking the whole situation very lightly.

In the past, Former Pfc. Manning would have already been on the receiving end of a 21 gun salute and the Traitorous Transvestite would have mysteriously expired from a severe case of cranial lead poisoning.

But, that was back when we had American Presidents who did not want to radically change our country.

The greatest American President in my lifetime, Ronald Reagan, once said,

Of the four wars in my lifetime, none came about because the U.S. was too strong.

Reagan was a realist. He realized that, as President Theodore “Teddy” Roosevelt once advised, the best way to keep America safe, is to “Speak softly and carry a big stick”.

Unfortunately for us, we have suffered for 8 long years with a president who speaks like a wuss and carries a feather pillow, a Mexican Flag, and a prayer rug.

Thank Our Creator that Friday is his last day in the Oval Office.

Until He Comes,

On MLK’s Birthday, the MSM Tried to get MLK III to Turn On Trump After a Meeting. “The Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men…”

January 17, 2017

85-2The Main Stream Media attempted to intimidate the wrong American, yesterday.

Newsbusters.org reported that

On Monday afternoon, reporters stationed inside Trump Tower begged Martin Luther King III to attack President-elect Trump over tweets concerning Democratic Congressman John Lewis (Ga.) following a meeting on the day honoring King’s father, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

King began by stating that he and Trump had “a very constructive meeting” with most of the focus on voting rights, but reporters quickly shifted the topic to Lewis. 

ABC correspondent Tom Llamas snuck in the first pathetic question, trying to bait King into blasting Trump: “Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action?”

King responded by stating Lewis is, like “many others,” a “bridge builder” but added that “in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides.”

With the press corps not satisfied, an unidentified male reporter trotted out this second-hand claim by a woman he said he saw last week at Trump Tower:

“Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white?”

Once again, King didn’t take the bait as he ruled “certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans” and he’ll “continue to evaluate that” throughout Trump’s presidency.

While Lewis has been in the spotlight, CNN’s Jim Acosta has been as well, following his well-publicized tussle with Trump.  Mediaite claimed that Acosta proceeded to “grill” King with this question, but that couldn’t have been further from the truth:

“Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action.”

“No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward,” answered King.

Here’s the relevant portion of the transcript from Martin Luther King III’s January 16 press conference at Trump Tower:

MARTIN LUTHER KING III: Let me briefly not just reiterate but state that we did have a very constructive meeting. The seminal right of the modern civil rights movement was the right to vote. My father fought so diligently for it, certainly Congressman John Lewis and many others, Hosea Williams fought for as well. It is very clear that the system is not working at its maximum, and through an op-ed that you may have seen, we provided at least a solution to begin to address a broken voting system. That was the dialogue, most of the dialogue that we talked about constructively. We believe we provided a solution that at least will give everyone an I.D. 

TOM LLAMAS: Mr. King, as you know, Representative Lewis still has the scars from the March on Selma. Were you offended by the President-elect’s tweet that Representative Lewis is all talk and no action? 

KING: First of all I think that in the heat of emotion, a lot of things get said on both sides and I think that at some point, and I am, as John Lewis and many others are, a bridge builder. The goal is to bring America together and Americans. We are a great nation, but we must become a greater nation, and what my father represented — my mother represented through her life, what I hope that I’m trying to do is always bring people together. 

UNIDENTIFIED MALE REPORTER: Sir, you know many African Americans are very concerned about a Trump presidency. A woman came in here last week and told me he’s going to have black people up against the wall, both literally and figuratively. Did he allay your concerns that he’ll be a president for all people, black and white? 

KING: Well certainly he said that, that he is going to represent Americans. He said that over and over again, and I think that we will continue to evaluate that. I think that the nation supports — I believe that’s his intent, but I think also we have to consistently engage with pressure, public pressure. It doesn’t happen automatically. My father and his team understood that, did that, and I think that Americans are prepared to do that. 

JIM ACOSTA: Sir, but if I may follow up, isn’t there something that cuts to your core when you hear the President-elect refer to John Lewis as all talk and no action? I mean, nothing could be further from the truth, isn’t that right? John Lewis is not all talk and no action. 

KING: No, absolutely. I would say John Lewis has demonstrated that he’s action. As I said, things get said on both sides in the heat of emotion and at some point, this nation, we’ve got to move forward. We can’t stay on — I mean, people are literally probably dying. We need to be talking about how do we feed people, how do we clothe people, how do we create the best education system. That’s what we need to be focused on. 

LLAMAS: On this day, what would your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? What do you think your father’s message would be to President-elect Trump? 

KING: This is the final answer I’m going to have because I’m going to reiterate what I just said. I think my father would be concerned about the fact that there are 50 million fact there are 50 or 60 million people living in poverty and somehow, we’ve got to create the climate for all boats to be lifted. In America, with a multi-trillion dollar economy — $20 trillion economy almost, it’s insanity we have poor people in this nation. That’s unacceptable and when we work together, we know we can roll up our sleeves. There’s nothing we as Americans can’t do. Thank you very much. 

As I have written in previous posts, America’s Main Stream Media abandoned their role as objective observers and reporters of the news a long time ago.

With the overwhelming majority of those in the MSM being Liberals, they no longer view their role in American Society as being simply news reporters. They view themselves as being advocates…Liberal activists with a camera and a microphone, whose job is to stir up trouble for those who do not follow in lockstep behind the Democratic Elite.

As shown in the above article, they are not above continuing and exacerbating the racial division which America has experienced during the presidency of Barack Hussein Obama.

Just like the out-of-touch Hollywood Celebrities, the infantile cry baby wannabe anarchists of #DisruptJ20, and the anti-Constitution Democratic Congressmen like John Lewis, America’s Main Stream Media are in the middle of an epic meltdown triggered by the legal election of Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.

As has been affirmed to me time and time again during my surfing of the web, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals, including those in the Main Stream Media, are living in a state of denial.

They respond as if you have told them that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when you inform them that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 8-year reign of their fallen messiah, King Barack The First and the defeat of their political party’s hand-picked successor, the Queen of Mean, Hillary Rodham Clinton.

This salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

Well, that plus the fact, as President-elect Trump has so eloquently put it time and again, THEY ARE A BUNCH OF LIARS.

Americans are now living in a  time when the Main Stream Media’s blatant propaganda is no longer believed at face value, as the evidence which refutes it is appearing in the live videos and photographs being shared on Facebook and other Social Media.

And, in response to the fact that average Americans do not believe a thing that they report, the MSM has decided that their role is to move from being objective reporters to being the unashamed Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party, pushing its progressive and disruptive agenda forward BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY.

Hence, the attempted intimidation of Martin Luther King III yesterday, in a desperate attempt to produce the results that those “journalists” wanted.

King III refused to be intimidated, just as President-elect Trump has refused to allow them to report lies about him.

So, with average Americas receiving our news from alternate sources and a man being inaugurated as President of the United States in 3 days who refuses to play their games, that leaves the Democratic Sycophants of the Main Stream Media S.O.L.

…And, you know what than means.

The Liberals’ National Temper Tantrum will not end any time soon.

Pass the popcorn.

4 Days Left: Rep. John Lewis and the Other Whiners Should Apologize to Trump

January 16, 2017

snowflake-600-ci

We were frankly more concerned in the run up to the election to the possibilities of vote tampering, which we did not see evidence of. And we’re confident that we can guard against. – President Barack Hussein Obama, December 13, 2016

The Washington Post reports that

The number of Democratic lawmakers planning to skip Donald Trump’s inauguration ceremony Friday is growing, with more joining in the boycott after the president-elect took to Twitter over the weekend to rebuke civil rights leader Rep. John Lewis (D., Ga.) for saying Mr. Trump wasn’t a “legitimate president.”

At least 20 lawmakers, all Democratic members of the House, have said they wouldn’t attend. Some are citing the president-elect’s past lewd comments about women and remarks about illegal immigrants; others, such as Mr. Lewis, cite accusations of Russian-backed hacking of political committees during the 2016 election.

“I don’t see this president-elect as a legitimate president,” Mr. Lewis told NBC in comments released Friday. “I think the Russians participated in helping this man get elected. And they helped destroy the candidacy of Hillary Clinton.”

Mr. Lewis’ comments prompted Mr. Trump to say Saturday on Twitter that the lawmaker should focus on his district. He said Mr. Lewis, who marched with Martin Luther King Jr. and was beaten during the Civil Rights era, was “all talk, talk, talk—no action or results. Sad!”

Some Democratic lawmaker cited Mr. Trump’s comments about Mr. Lewis in announcing they wouldn’t attend the inauguration.

“For me, the personal decision not to attend [the] inauguration is quite simple: Do I stand with Donald Trump, or do I stand with John Lewis? I am standing with John Lewis,” Rep. Ted W. Lieu (D., Calif.) said in a statement Saturday. He also cited comments on other matters by Mr. Trump that he termed “un-American.’’

Inaugural events are usually attended by lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. A bipartisan committee known as the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies is responsible for the swearing-in ceremonies and a luncheon at the U.S. Capitol.

Vice President-elect Mike Pence, speaking Sunday on Fox News, said he was “disappointed” in Mr. Lewis’ comments and hoped the lawmaker would reconsider his boycott.

“Donald Trump has the right to defend himself,” Mr. Pence also said.

Reince Priebus, Mr. Trump’s choice to be White House chief of staff, described Mr. Lewis’s allegation about Russian influence in the election as “insanity” and “wrong.”

He pointed to Director of National Intelligence James Clapper’s recent statement that there was no information to suggest Russian hackers changed vote tallies or interfered with voting systems in the presidential election.

“I think it’s incredibly disappointing, and I think it’s irresponsible for people like [Mr. Lewis] to question the legitimacy of the next United States president,’’ Mr. Priebus told ABC. “I think putting the United States down across the world is not something a responsible person does.”

Denis McDonough, chief of staff to President Barack Obama, defended Mr. Lewis but said he disagreed Mr. Trump isn’t “legitimate.” He noted that Mr. Obama said he believes Mr. Trump is “the freely elected president.”

Still, Mr. McDonough said on CNN that intelligence shows the Russians “did intervene, and they did intervene with the purpose of helping one candidate and hurting the other. So, these are by no means trivial concerns.”

Democratic Party leadership isn’t taking part in the boycott of Mr. Trump’s inauguration. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi told NPR on Friday that she would attend, to mark “the peaceful transfer of power and, in this case, from one party to the next.”

In December, Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D., Ill.) became one of the first to announce he wouldn’t attend, citing comments Mr. Trump had made about women, immigrants and people of color.

“I cannot go to [the] inauguration of a man who’s going to appoint people to the Supreme Court and turn back the clock on women and turn back the clock on immigrants and the safety and freedom that we fought for them,” Mr. Gutierrez said last month.

Other lawmakers who have said they wouldn’t attend inaugural events are Rep. Katherine Clark (D., Mass.), Rep. John Conyers (D., Mich.), Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D., Wash.), Rep. Jared Huffman (D., Calif.), Rep. Mark DeSaulnier (D., Calif.), Rep. Lacy Clay (D., Mo.), Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D., Ore.) Rep. Adam Smith, (D., Wash)., Rep. Barbara Lee (D, Calif.), Rep. Raúl Grijalva (D, Ariz.), Rep. Kurt Schrader (D., Ore.), Rep. José E. Serrano (D., N.Y.), Rep. Nydia Velázquez (D., N.Y.), Rep. Mark Takano (D., Calif.), Rep. Yvette Clarke (D., N.Y.), Rep. Judy Chu (D., Calif.), Rep. Jerry Nadler (D., N.Y.) and Rep. Adriano Espaillat (D., N.Y.)

Mr. McDonough, Sunday on CNN, suggested Mr. Lewis and Mr. Trump work together on social policy.

“My hope would be that the president-elect would reach out to somebody as consequential and somebody who is such a leader as John Lewis, who has done so many things over the course of his life, to try to work this out,” Mr. McDonough said.

Oh, bite me, McDonough.

President-Elect Trump should not apologize.

America has just lived through 8 long years of our Republican Congressmen (and women) being “mannerly” and bowing in deference, nine times our of 10, to the Democrats and their fallen messiah, Barack Hussein Obama.

It all started on January 23, 2009, when, while meeting with Congressional members to discuss his “this-can’t-fail” Stimulus Package, newly-inaugurated President Obama told those assembled exactly who was in charge, as politico.com related…

President Obama listened to Republican gripes about his stimulus package during a meeting with congressional leaders Friday morning – but he also left no doubt about who’s in charge of these negotiations. “I won,” Obama noted matter-of-factly, according to sources familiar with the conversation.

After that, instead of practicing open acts of defiance, Vichy Republicans meekly acquiesced to Obama’s socialization of America, forgetting that they were supposed to be the “Opposition Party”…until Americans at the Grass Roots Level, started the TEA Party Movement, and reminded them who their bosses were, sending more Republicans to Congress, in both 2012 and 2014, giving the GOP complete control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate.

Then on November 8th, 2016, Americans once again rose up on our hind legs, and elected American Businessman and Entrepreneur Donald J. Trump as the 45th President of the United States of America.

And, ever since the night that Trump was declared the winner, fueled by the money of George Soros and other behind the scenes wealthy Progressives, who have been roaming the Halls of Power in Washington, DC with impunity for the last 8 years, professional and amateur political pundits and the so-called “Democratic Leadership”, buoyed by the unrelenting anti-Trump Propaganda vomited, seeming hourly, by the Main Stream Media, have engaged in a National Temper Tantrum, in a desperate effort to somehow overthrow the will of the America people, negating the Constitutional Election of Donald J. Trump.

These Liberals/Progressives/Cry Babies have come up with every excuse in the book as to why they lost the President Election.

They blamed the ignorance of voters in America’s Heartland. They blamed Conservative Talk Radio. They blamed Conservative American Bloggers, like myself. They blamed Christians, again, like myself. They have even blamed a nonexistent interference by the Russians, which, as noted, by the quote at the beginning of this post, even Obama himself said did not involve vote tampering.

If anyone should apologize, it is John Lewis, the Obama Administration, the Main Stream Media, and the rest of the Democratic Party.

Their incessant whining, their violent behavior, and their immaturity are embarrassing, not just to American Voters. They have beclowned themselves in front of the entire world.

As mandated by tradition and the documents written and signed by our Founding Fathers, the American Presidency is supposedly to be relinquished through a smooth and orderly transition of power, in which our elected representatives in Washington, DC act with sophistication and grace.

Instead, the Democrats are conducting themselves in a manner reminiscent of the Campfire Scene in Mel Brook’s Classic Movie, “Blazing Saddles”.

How ’bout some more beans, Mr. Taggart?

Taggart: [fans his hat in the air] I’d say you’ve had enough!

With four days left in America’s 8-Year Nightmare, it is way past time for the Democrats to end their Pity Party over their lousy candidate losing the Presidential Election.

Just like Mr. Taggart (the late, great Slim Pickens) in the movie…

Americans have had enough the hot air which the Dems have been expelling…and the foul smell which it has left behind.

Until He Comes,

The Never-Ending National Temper Tantrum Continues: Far Left Cry Babies Make Plans to “Disrupt” Inauguration Day

January 15, 2017

recycle-signs-600-la-2

We’re planning a series of massive direct actions that will shut down the Inauguration ceremonies and any related celebrations–the Inaugural parade, the Inaugural balls, you name it. We’re also planning to paralyze the city itself, using blockades and marches to stop traffic and even public transit. And hey, because we like fun, we’re even going to throw some parties. – The DC Welcoming Committee, #DisruptJ20

Foxnews.com reports that

An anti-Donald Trump group is planning massive disruptions for next week’s inauguration covering everything from “blockades” at security checkpoints to a “dance party” outside VP-elect Mike Pence’s house, according to group leaders as well as newly obtained audio of their apparent plans.

The organization #DisruptJ20 already announced at a press conference Thursday its various plans to wreak havoc at Trump’s Jan. 20 inauguration and in the days leading up to it.

A conservative group also shared with FoxNews.com what it said was audio from a Jan. 8 #DisruptJ20 meeting at a Washington church, giving even greater insight into the group’s planned D.C. “shutdown.”

The audio, recorded by Trevor Loudon with Capital Research Center, purports to show a female member detailing plans to “do everything we can to try and stop people from being able to access the inauguration.”

This begins with what was described as a “pure dance party at Mike Pence’s house” on Jan. 18.

“It’s his last few days living in Chevy Chase before he moves into the vice presidential residence, and we’re going to send him off with a bang,” the woman says in the audio.

Then she says the group is turning its attention toward the pro-Trump “DeploraBall” the following day, which she describes as the “alt-right neo-Nazi … party to celebrate Trump.”

“We’re gonna crash it,” she says.

That takes the group into inauguration morning, when members say they plan to block entrance points as well as roads and transportation.

“We’re going to be doing blockades,” the woman says in the audio. “We’re going to [be] blockading checkpoints into the security zones. We’re also going to be blockading roads and other modes of transit into the city.”

At 10 a.m. that day, the group is planning an “anti-Capitalist, anti-fascist bloc” that “will be an unpermitted march that will be leaving from Logan Square.”

A #DisruptJ20 spokeswoman confirmed to FoxNews.com on Friday that the group laid out these plans at the Jan. 8 meeting, which she described as public and well-attended.

Defending the group’s agenda, she said: “We’re exercising our freedom of speech and really want to set a tone for the next few years that there’s a massive body of people … who are very concerned about the dangerous direction Donald Trump is taking our country in.”

The Jan. 8 remarks also track with what members said at Thursday’s press conference.

#DisruptJ20 members openly described plans to blockade checkpoints. One organizer told Fox News he hopes to “turn the inauguration into as big of a clusterf— as possible.”

Another group, ANSWER Coalition, is also planning to protest the inauguration but with a somewhat different agenda. The group said it’s galvanizing tens of thousands of people at permitted locations — like Freedom Plaza and the Navy Memorial — to march and protest in a more traditional way.

The #DisruptJ20 audio was obtained by Dangerous Documentaries, a project of the Capital Research Center, as part of its upcoming documentary on left-wing protesters, “America Under Siege: Civil War 2017.” The film is set for release before Inauguration Day.

According to a Gallup Poll, published on January 16th of last year, Conservatives are still the leading Political Ideology in America at 37%, followed closely by “self-described” Moderates at 35%. Liberals remain the Minority Political Ideology in America, comprising only 24% of our population.

That is why I call the actions of these insufferable idiots, like the like the ones from #Disruptj20, “The Tyranny of the Minority”.

So, anyway, here we are…with a bunch of paid and unpaid “useful idiots” telling all of us normal Americans, living out here in the Heartland, how stupid and intolerant we are, for actually holding to Traditional American Values and electing as our next President, Donald J. Trump.

They firmly believe that if they attempt to disrupt Trump’s Inauguration, somehow they will prevent 6the wishes of the Electoral Majority of American Citizens from becoming a reality.

They have no respect for our Founding Fathers and the System of Government which they pledged their lives and sacred honor to give to us.

They are a bunch of spoiled brats having a never-ending National Temper Tantrum.

I have dealt with one of these idiots before.

Back in 2011, I got into a discussion on Andrew Breitbart’s Big Government website with some Cheetos-munching, Mom’s basement-dwelling Lib with no home training, who proceeded to tell me that he would be proud to defecate on the American Flag.

If I could have reached through my computer monitor and throttled that useless, ungrateful spoiled brat, I would have.

That “dude” was yet another example of the useful idiots of this present generation, such as Miley Cyrus, that seem to be garnering a lot of national attention for their outrageous, disrespectful…and, yes, intolerant, behavior.

Just as we have been bearing witness for the last couple of years, through the glorification of thugs and the vilifying of our local police departments by the Obama Administration and the local “communities” which they lay their lives on the line for, every day they put on their uniforms, the effects of LBJ’s “Great Society” on American Culture and the Black Family Unit, so are we witnessing, through the egocentric behavior of this present generation, what happens when children are left to “their own devices”, instead of being raised “in the way in which they should go”.

The “spoiled children” and wannabe anarchists who will attempt to disrupt the Inauguration of Donald J. Trump have a lot in common with the hoolums whom I was just speaking of.

They have no “home training”, either.

These “spoiled brats”, like their imperious President, do not care about the “Will of the People”, but, rather, they are intent on implementing and enforcing their Far Left Political Ideology, resulting in a “Tyranny of the Minority”, which we are seeing play out, as they attempt to hold on to the perceived power which they had under Obama’s failed presidency, while they collected their “FREE STUFF” bestowed upon them by the “benevolent masters” of the Democrat Party, by trying to somehow block Donald J. Trump’s swearing in as the 45th President of the United States of America.

The use of Karl Marx/Saul Alinsky-inspired “Class War Politics”, including “Racial Rhetoric”, and Barack Hussein Obama’s own petulant, belligerent personality of a 12-year-old, has inspired these “protestors”, leading to a divided nation, the likes of which has not been seen since “The War of Northern Aggression”.

When our Founding Fathers sat down to provide form and substance to the laws and procedures for governing this new country, which they had fought and won a bloody war over, by pledging their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor, they were very aware of the price of tyranny.

They determined that this new nation would be a Constitutional Republic, having had their fill of monarchies.

And, that Sacred Document, our United States Constitution, gives each of us the right, including President-elect Trump, to speak our minds and be heard.

It gives those protestors that right, too…but, not at the expense of others, by strong-arming their way into the Inauguration, nor by blocking the access of American Citizens to attend it, for the expressed purpose of attempting to circumvent the Constitution of the United States of America..

That is called “INTOLERANCE”. It is also called FASCISM.

As I have previously written, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

It’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead with state referendums, Congressional votes, Executive Orders, judicial activism, and FAR Left-sponsored and organized Political Activists.

And, it’s not our Brightest and Best who are dying on this field of battle, but rather, it is our Constitutional Freedoms which are dying an ignoble death, pierced by the arrows of socialism and political correctness.

Whether Soros and his paid-off “Special Snowflakes” like him or not, does not matter. Donald J. Trump was legally elected as the next President of the United States of America.

For these Soros-funded, fascist “New Bolsheviks”, to attempt to circumvent the will of the American People though this Orchestrated Protest is an exercise in intimidation that has not been seen since the days of the Russian Revolution and Germany’s National Sociality Party.

Of course, don’t not attempt to tell a Modern American Liberal that.

After all, it’s not Fascism when they do it.

Until He Comes,

Instead of Blaming the Criminals for Chicago’s Out-of-Control Homicide Rate, AG Lynch Blames the Police

January 14, 2017

loretta-lynch-chicago-caro-603x377

Just when you thought that the Obama Administration could not get any more ignorant…

The Los Angeles Times reports that

In perhaps the most damning, sweeping critique ever of the Chicago Police Department, the U.S. Department of Justice concluded Friday that the city’s police officers are poorly trained and quick to turn to excessive and even deadly force, most often against blacks and Latino residents, without facing consequences.The 164-page report, the product of more than a year of investigation, paints the picture of a department flawed from top to bottom, although many of the problems it cites have, for decades, been the subject of complaints from citizens, lawsuits by attorneys and investigations by news organizations.

As such, the report is an indictment of sorts of city officials who, the report said, have paid lip service to the community’s complaints as well as the need for reform of the Police Department and the various city agencies responsible for its oversight.

Taken together, the Chicago Police Department’s flaws have “helped create a culture in which officers expect to use force and not be questioned about the need for or propriety of that use,” the Justice Department said in its report, made public Friday by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

In response to the federal investigation, Mayor Rahm Emanuel agreed to enter a court-enforced agreement with the Justice Department on a wide range of reforms, Lynch and other officials announced. While the report lauds some of the changes Emanuel has made to policing in recent months, it cautions that further reforms are needed and that real change is unlikely to last without outside monitoring.

What’s more, the report takes Emanuel to task for his efforts to get ahead of the report, saying some efforts have been insufficient.

For his part, the mayor continued to voice his backing of the federal investigation while at the same time insisting the report’s findings of systemic problems don’t portray most cops.

“The incidents described in this report are sobering to all of us,” he said. “Police misconduct will not be tolerated anywhere in the city of Chicago, and those who break the rules will be held accountable for their actions. Misconduct not only harms the individuals affected, it damages the reputation of the Chicago Police Department.

“At the same time, it is important to recognize that the incidents of misconduct cited in this report do not represent the values of the city of Chicago. And I believe firmly they do not represent the good work of the vast majority of the men and women of the Chicago Police Department, I said it earlier, who put their lives on the line every day.”

At a news conference, Lynch said the department’s pattern of excessive force “is in no small part the result of severely deficient training procedures and accountability systems.”

“CPD does not give its officers the training they need to do their jobs safely, effectively and lawfully,” Lynch said. “It fails to properly collect and analyze data, including data on misconduct complaints and training deficiencies, and it does not adequately review use-of-force incidents to determine whether force was appropriate or lawful or whether the use of force could’ve been avoided altogether.”

All of these issues, she said, have led to “low officer morale and erosion of officer accountability.”

On the contrary, ma’am…

The low officer morale comes from knowing that those in power in Democratically-controlled cities and in the Obama Administration, such as yourself, do not have their back.

And, America’s Municipal Police Forces are still accountable…to their own leadership.

No matter how badly  you and your boss wanted it…you failed in your effort to create a National Police Force.

No brown shirts for you.

But, why does Obama and his Administration hate our Men and Women in Blue?

From 1985 – 1988, President Barack Hussein Obama was a Community Organizer in Chicago. What does a Community Organizer do? I’m glad you asked.

Per Byron York in an article found at nationalreview.com:

Community organizing is most identified with the left-wing Chicago activist Saul Alinsky (1909-72), who pretty much defined the profession. In his classic book, Rules for Radicals, Alinsky wrote that a successful organizer should be “an abrasive agent to rub raw the resentments of the people of the community; to fan latent hostilities of many of the people to the point of overt expressions.” Once such hostilities were “whipped up to a fighting pitch,” Alinsky continued, the organizer steered his group toward confrontation, in the form of picketing, demonstrating, and general hell-raising.

Obama was hired by Jerry Kellman, a New Yorker who had gotten into organizing in the 1960s. Kellman was trying to help laid-off factory workers on the far South Side of Chicago, in a nearly 100% black community. He led a group, the Calumet Community Religious Conference, that had been created by several local Catholic churches in the industrial community. Kellman was advised to hire a black organizer for a new spinoff from CCRC. They called it the Developing Communities Project, designed to focus solely on the Chicago part of the area.

One of Obama’s projects while he was there, was to try to build an alliance of white and black churches and enlist them in the cause of social justice. Obama had a problem, though. He didn’t go to church himself. And that, brothers and sisters, is how Obama, drawn to the preaching of Rev. Jeremiah Wright (and a political opportunity), joined Trinity United Church of Christ on 95th Street.

If you ask Obama’s fellow Community Organizers what his most significant accomplishments were, they’ll say two things: the expansion of a city summer-job program for South Side teenagers and the removal of asbestos from one of the area’s oldest housing projects. Those were his biggest victories.

Under the failed leadership of Former Community Activist, Barack Hussein Obama, America’s Law Enforcement Officers have been killed at an unprecedented rate  by cowards, seemingly emboldened by the Anti-Law Enforcement Rhetoric coming straight from the President and his Attorney Generals, first Eric Holder and now, Loretta Lynch.

bearing witness to Black and White Liberal Politicians making excuses for the out-of-control, self-inflicted genocide of 13% of America’s Population, as they blame it on “Racial Inequality”, while a Black Man sits behind a desk in the Oval Office at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, holding the most powerful leadership position in the Free World.

America’s Far Left Political Activists, including President Barack Hussein Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch, have, for the last fyears, been attempting what is known in both sports and military strategy, as a “misdirection” play.

While these politicians and paid protesters shout about “equality” in front of every television camera that they can get in front of, at the same time, here in the real world, black children are being born into a situation which handicaps them from the start: the burden of an illegitimate birth and the reality of a fatherless home.

How many black children are being born out of wedlock?

Among non-Hispanic blacks, the figure is highest, at 72.2 percent; for American Indians/Alaska Natives, it’s 66.9 percent; 53.5 percent for Hispanics; 29.4 percent for non-Hispanic whites; and a mere 17.1 percent for Asians/Pacific Islanders.

These Americans, unlike the majority of us, are growing up without appropriate parental guidance, i.e., no one teaching them “the way in which they should go”

Why is this happening? How did we get here?

Back in the 60s, President Lyndon Johnson (whose big hand I once shook, at his ranch, as a little boy, after his presidential term) and the Democrats, brought forth a plan, called “the Great Society”. It was decided, in order to ensure that everyone would have an equal opportunity in America, that Uncle Sugar would step in to fill in the gaps.

Two seminal pieces of legislation were passed.

First, the Civil Rights Bill that JFK promised to sign, before his assassination, was passed into law. This Act banned discrimination based on race and gender in employment and ending segregation in all public facilities.

It also helped to cement in stone, minorities’ loyalty to the Democratic Party, which continues to this day.

The second bill that LBJ signed into law was the sweeping ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITY ACT OF 1964. It created the Office of Economic Opportunity whose stated purpose was to attack the roots of American poverty. A Job Corps was then established to provide vocational training.

A preschool program designed to help disadvantaged students arrive at kindergarten ready to learn, named HEADSTART, was then established. Then came VOLUNTEERS IN SERVICE TO AMERICA (VISTA), which was set up as a domestic Peace Corps. Schools in impoverished American regions would now receive volunteer teaching attention. Federal funds were sent to struggling communities to attack unemployment and illiteracy.

What Johnson told Americans, as he campaigned in 1964, was that the establishment of this “Great Society” was going to eliminate the problems of America’s poor.

It had the opposite effect

The Great Society created a dependent class, which, instead of diminishing as it’s members joined the workforce, increased from generation to generation, relying on the federal government to provide their every need.

Uncle Sugar became Mother, Father, Preacher, and Doctor to generations of Americans. This “plantation mentality” continues to this day.

Instead of moving forward, by exercising the self-reliance that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. preached so well, these people I saw, were content on being “taken care of” by Uncle Sugar, as if being held down by their own poor, miserable circumstance, was a good thing.

Since August of 2014, the results of LBJ’s “Great Society” have been the lead story in seemingly, every television newscast, on every newspaper front page, and on every internet news/political website.

Dr. King, as we near the celebration of your birthday, I am sorry to tell you that racism and injustice is still going on in America. Unfortunately, it will not end any time soon, There are too many race-baiters profiting off of it.

Including, the outgoing (Thank God) President of the United States.

The part of your magnificent speech about “the content of their character” has been purposefully ignored by professional race-baiters, the “perpetually aggrieved”, and assorted politicians, all seeking their own fortune and glory.

Dr. King, your call for self-reliance took a back seat to their self-serving agenda, a long time ago.

It is much easier to blame America’s Thin Blue line for Black-on-Black Crime, than to accept personal responsibility and work to end it.

Until He Comes,

Dim…err…Dem. Senator From California Grills Future CIA Director Pompeo as to Whether He Believes in “Climate Change”. Really? Why?

January 13, 2017

Have you ever wondered why Modern American Liberals are still so preoccupied with the faux science of Global Warming/Climate Change?

I mean, how arrogant do you have to be to believe that you can make a change in the very weather itself, which is controlled by Someone way above your pay grade?

Invented by Al Gore, and propagandized in the book and the movie, “An Inconvenient Truth”, “Climate Change” has become both a Secular Liberal Religion and an industry, a failed one, but an industry none the less.

Ranging from washouts like Solyndra to GreenTech Automotive, millions of taxpayer dollars have been sunk into these so-called green projects, since the advent of the Obama administration.

It is so much a part of Congressional Liberals personal mantras, they believe that literally EVERYTHING is secondary to this faux science, including the security of our Sovereign Nation.

CNSNews.com reports that

CIA director nominee Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kan.) said Thursday that he would rather not wade into the climate change debate during his confirmation hearing before the Senate Select Intelligence Committee.

“I frankly as a director of CIA would prefer today not to get into the details of climate debate and science. It seems my role is gonna be so different and unique from that. It is gonna be to work alongside warriors keeping Americans safe, and so I stand by the things that I’

Sen. Kamal Harris (D-Calif.) asked Pompeo, “CIA Director Brennan, who spent a 25-year career at the CIA as an analyst, a senior manager, and station chief in the field, has said that when ‘CIA analysts look for deeper causes of rising instability in the world, one of the causes those CIA analysts see is the impact of climate change.’ Do you have any reason to doubt the assessment of these CIA analysts?”

“Senator, I haven’t had a chance to read those materials with respect to climate change. I do know the agency’s role there,” said Pompeo.

“Its role is to collect foreign intelligence, to understand threats to the world. That would certainly include threats from poor governance, regional instability, threats from all sources and deliver that information to policymakers, and to the extent the changes in climactic activity are part of that foreign intelligence collection task, we will deliver that information to you all and to the president,” he added.

Harris asked a follow-up question about whether Pompeo doubted NASA’s findings on the issue of climate change.

“In the past, you have questioned the scientific consensus on climate change. Nevertheless, according to NASA, multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively published climate scientists agree that climate warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities,” she said.

“In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position. Do you have any reason to doubt NASA’s findings?” Harris asked.

“Senator, I’ve actually spoken to this in my political life some. My commentary most all has been directed to ensuring that the policies that America has put in place actually achieve the objective of ensuring that we didn’t have catastrophic harm that resulted from change in climate,” Pompeo said. “I continue to hold that view.
 
“I frankly as a director of CIA would prefer today not to get into the details of climate debate and science. It seems my role is gonna be so different and unique from that. It is gonna be to work alongside warriors keeping Americans safe, and so I stand by the things that I’ve said previously with respect to that issue,” he said.

“So I’m not clear. Do you believe that NASA’s findings are debatable?” Harris asked.

“Senator, actually I haven’t spent enough time to tell you that I’ve looked at NASA’s findings, and just, I can’t give you any judgment about that today,” Pompeo replied.

“Can you guarantee me that you will and we’ll have a follow-up conversation on this?” Harris asked.

“I’m happy to continue to talk about it. Yes, ma’am, of course,” Pompeo responded.

Leonard Weinstein, ScD, published an article on 4/25/2009 titled Disproving The Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW) Problem. 

Here are some excerpts:

A hypothesis has been proposed that human activity over about the last 150 years has caused a significant rise in Earth’s average temperature.

…In order to support a hypothesis, specific predictions need to be made that are based on the claims of the hypothesis, and the predictions then need to either happen or be falsified. While the occurrence of the predicted events is not proof positive of a hypothesis, they increase the believability of the claims. However, if the predictions are not observed, this tends to indicate the hypothesis is flawed or even wrong. Some predictions are absolute in nature. Einstein’s prediction of the bending of light by the Sun is such a case. It either would or would not bend, and this was considered a critical test of the validity of his hypothesis of general relativity. It did bend the predicted amount, and helped raise the concept to the status of theory.

Many predictions however are less easily supported. For example, weather forecasting often does a good job in the very short term but over increasing time does a poor job. This is due to the complexity of the numerous nonlinear components. This complexity has been described in chaos theory by what is called the butterfly effect. Any effect that depends on numerous factors, some of which are nonlinear in effect, is nearly impossible to use to make long-range predictions.

However, for some reason, the present predictions of “Climate Change” are considered by the AGW supporters to be more reliable than even short-term weather forecasting. While some overall trends can be reasonably made based on looking at past historical trends, and some computational models can suggest some trends due to specific forcing factors, like any respectable hypothesis, specific predictions need to be made, and then shown to happen, before the AGW models can have any claim to being reasonably valid.

The AGW computational models do make several specific predictions. Since the time scale for checking the result of the predictions is small, and since local weather can vary enough on the short time scale to confuse the longer time scale prediction, allowances for these shorter lasting events have to be made when examining data that is supposed to be supporting the predictions. Nevertheless, if the actual data results do not significantly support the stated predictions, the AGW hypothesis must be reconsidered or even rejected as it stands.

…The final question is what prediction has the AGW hypothesis made that has been demonstrated, and that strongly supports the hypothesis. It appears that there is NO real supporting evidence and much falsifying evidence for the AGW hypothesis as proposed. That is not to say there is no effect from Human activity. Clearly human pollution (not greenhouse gases) is a problem. There is also very likely some contribution to the present temperature variations from the increase in CO2 and CH4, but it is almost certainly a small effect and not a driver of future climate.

Any reasonable scientific analysis must conclude the basic AGW hypothesis fails.

So, why are Congressional Democrats still “ate up with the Dumb A@@” (a colorful Southern expression)and still tilting at windmills, fighting their Quixotic Crusade?

Well…Here are some possible reasons…

1.  Appeasing the Gullible –Hey “The Facts Are In.” The “science” is true. And, as P.T. Barnum said,

There is a sucker born every minute.

Remember…these “true believers of the Goreacle”, also voted for Obama. They are easily fooled.

2. Money, Money, Money – Too much money invested by Democrat “Power Brokers” and to much of American Taxpayers money spent needlessly to back down now. These Democratic Congresscritters have political promises to keep.

3. Hey, look! Squirrel! – With Obama and his minions about to be kicked out of the Halls of Power, with possible Federal Investigations to follow, the Congressional Democrats are grasping for whatever national distraction they can come up with.

What would make Senator Harris think that the Director of the CIA has anything to do with “Climate Change” in the performance of his job duties?

Perhaps, she was thinking about “The Day After Tomorrow”, the movie starring Dennis Quaid, which bombed spectacularly, in which the ice was chasing everybody.

ROFL!

Until He Comes,

“You Are Fake News!” Trump Gives CNN An Object Lesson on Newton’s Third Law

January 12, 2017

For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. – Newton’s Third Law

ACTION:

(Foxnews.com) A provocative report claiming the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years was published by BuzzFeed late Tuesday night.

There’s just one problem: The allegations in the 25-page dossier are unverified.

Incoming White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus joined “Fox and Friends” Wednesday to discuss the unverified allegations.

“It is complete garbage, I’ll tell you that. … BuzzFeed themselves said this stuff’s not credible. The New York Times announced overnight they couldn’t even publish this stuff because they couldn’t verify it and they don’t believe in it,” Priebus said.

Trump released a string of tweets in response to the allegations.

…”The big accusation here is that a guy who works for the Trump Organization by the name of Michael Cohen was in Prague meeting with some Russian agent,” Priebus said. “I talked to the guy, he’s never been to Prague in his life. I looked at his passport page by page. He’s never been to Prague.”

The Kremlin released a statement saying the claims were fake.

REACTION:

(Foxnews.com) During his first press conference since the election, Donald Trump got into a back-and-forth exchange with CNN reporter Jim Acosta over the news organization’s coverage of the unverified report — first posted on BuzzFeed — claiming Trump’s deep ties with Russia.

While answering a question relating to his earlier tweet asking “Are we living in Nazi Germany,” Trump specifically called out BuzzFeed as a “failing pile of garbage” and CNN for building up the story after BuzzFeed first released it.

When Trump finished his response, Acosta could be overheard trying to ask a question.

“Since you’re attacking us can you give us a question? Since you are attacking our news organization can you give us a chance?” Acosta said.

“Not you, your organization is terrible,” Trump responded, telling Acosta to be quiet. “She’s asking a question, don’t be rude.”

Acosta however kept trying to ask his question, until Trump ended the exchange by declaring CNN to be “fake news.”

“No, I’m not going to give you a question. You are fake news!” he said.

“Mr. President-elect that’s not appropriate,” Acosta said before allowing the next reporter to ask her question.

Acosta appeared on CNN to discuss the incident.

ANALYSIS:

The Main Stream Media has gotten so desperate to bring down the juggernaut that is President-elect Donald J. Trump that that they have adopted the strategy of publishing unsubstantiated lie in order to assuage their own hurt feeling after their failure to aid lousy Democratic Candidate Hillary Clinton in her quest to become the 45th President of the United States of America.

The depth of their grief and the blind rage of their ensuing temper tantrum has evidently wiped out any vestiges of journalistic integrity that remained after decades of being the Propaganda Arm of the Democratic Party.

As Trump so rightly pointed out yesterday during his press conference, the Main Stream Media, in this case, represented by CNN, are so upset that they have retaliated by publishing all of that “Fake News” that Barack Hussein Obama, the current resident of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, keeps referring to, in that same Main Stream Media.

Ironic, eh?

President-elect Trump will never be able to please the Main Stream Media.

Nor should he have to.

The Presidency of the United States of America is the most important leadership position on the Face of God’s Green Earth.

The Main Stream Media knows that.

The problem is, as stated earlier, the Main Stream Media is still having a conniption fit (Southern colloquialism for being upset over something to the point insanity) over the election of Donald J. Trump as the next President by us rubes here in Flyover Country.

The Main Stream Media not only has lost their meal ticket with the defeat of the Queen of Mean, Hillary Clinton, but they also have to face the reality of being “punked” for at least four years by Donald J. Trump, who treats them like a school of Largemouth Bass, baiting the hook with the promise of a big announcement or story, causing them to pack the room wherever Trump is speaking, only to find out that they have been used to gain free publicity for Mr. Trump and whatever cause he is trying to forward that day.

Or, in this case, refusing to play nice with them when they slander him.

Trump has made the Media look tremendously naïve and stupid on several occasions, in scenes reminiscent of Lucy Van Pelt promising to hold the football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to pull it away at the last minute leaving a helpless Charlie Brown to wipe out, tumbling head over heels.

The Main Stream Media are no longer in control of the dissemination of the news…and they know it.

Between Trump’s playing them like Charlie Daniels playing a fiddle and average Americans becoming their own reporters through the use of Social Media, “professional journalists” have watched their influence over the daily lives of Americans dwindle and diminish right before their very eyes.

And, quite frankly, they don’t like it one bit.

That is why they continue to try to bring down Trump.

The problem that the hellhounds of the Main Stream Media face is the fact that in order to  have access to President Donald J. Trump and to be able to file news reports covering the actions that he is going to take as President, they are going to have to accurately report what actually happens.

As CNN learned the hard way yesterday, the 45th President of the United States of America will not suffer unsubstantiated slander or the fools who report it, gladly.

You don’t tug on Superman’s Cape. You don’t spit into the wind. You don’t pull the mask off that ol’ Lone Ranger…and you DON’T PUBLISH LIES ABOUT TRUMP.

Until He Comes,

KJ
