2020 Presidential Election: Will the Dems Nominee Be a “McGovern 2.0”?

March 20, 2019

dnc-circus-dt-600

As is usually the case, there was a very interesting moment on Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio program yesterday.

RUSH: This is Eleanor Clift. She’s a dinosaur in the Democrat Party. That just means she’s been around a long time. She’s got a different take on the Democrat Party than the modern-day socialist Millennials and the so-called new blood of the Democrat Party.

…She was on C-SPAN today, and she had a question. “Talk about history and where it can be instructional for Democrats in choosing a candidate and contrast today,” she was asked, “with 1972.”

…CLIFT: Is this is going to be 1972 or 1992? And 72, of course, the Democrats found the most left candidate in their field, George McGovern. He lost. He lost rather hugely. Then in 1992, Bill Clinton was able to sort of navigate a center position that restored the Democrats to the White House. The Democratic voting electorate is to the left. Young people who’ve grown up in this time are very attracted to socialism because they don’t see that they’ve gotten much benefit out of capitalism. So that’s going to be an ongoing debate within the Democratic field.

RUSH: She is warning them that if they nominate one of these radical leftists it’s gonna be a McGovern type landslide defeat. He lost 49 states to Richard Nixon in 1972. And that’s when the Democrats were holding Watergate in reserve, and they came back and drove Nixon from office with it after his 49-state landslide.

Here’s the thing…the Democrats’ National Chairman, Tom Perez, is a Radical Hispanic Activist. There is new way that he will allow a “Centrist” (i.e., less liberal than the Far Left) Democrat to be their party’s nominee. Nancy Pelosi may be the Speaker of the House but Tom Perez is the Party Chairman and, as Eleanor Clift alluded to, he has a lot of wild-eyed Far Left Democrats like Omar, Tlaib, and AOC to back him up.

I believe that the Dems will nominate a Far Left Presidential Candidate

And, it’s for the identical reason that they lost the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Democrats remain out-of-touch with the majority of Americans.

But…but…how can this be?

I mean, if you watch Cable News (except for Fox News) Trump should be the most hated man in America.

Between the accusations of “Russian Collusion” and “unfair treatment of asylum seekers” on our Southern Border, he should be as unpopular as Rosie O’Donnell at an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet.

But then again, according to those same news outlets, Hillary Clinton should be president, as there was no way the American Voters were going to elect Donald J. Trump the 45th President of the United States of America.

The past two-plus years have clearly shown that the Modern Democratic Party remains consumed by their grief over losing the 2016 Presidential Election and their hatred for the man who is now sitting in the Oval Office, Donald J. Trump.

The Democrats put all their eggs in one basket: their fervent desire that somehow, someway, Robert Mueller could find some sort of impeachable offense against President Trump.

So far, Mueller and his team of Trump-hating Democratic Donors poorly masquerading as impartial investigators, are failing miserably.

They have handed down indictments for “offenses” which were not even a part of Trump’s Presidential Campaign or the first year of his presidency.

With Mueller’s Investigation blowing up around them, now the Democrats continue to try to sabotage Trump by denying his the money to fulfill the Campaign Promise he made to erect a wall on our Southern Border, even threatening to somehow override his veto of the bill they passed to prevent it, oblivious to the fact that these same Democrats were all for it before Trump suggested it.

However, the biggest problem that the Democrats face is the fact that the President keeps on succeeding in fulfilling his Campaign Promises even though the Democrats and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, have thrown every thing that they could think of at him, including Fake News Stories that they desperately made up.

The economy is booming, Trump keeps winning, and the Dems keep losing.

Despite the Fed’s efforts to slow America’s comeback down, new homes are being built and unemployment remains low.

And, average Americans are loving it.

They have learned nothing at all from their 2-plus years out of power.

For the Democratic Party to begin winning elections again, they are going to have to abandon the Far Left Political Ideology, inspired by Karl Marx and Saul Alinsky, which they have bitterly clung to as their “religion” for the past several decades.

The absurdity and downright anti-Americanism of their “Tenets of Faith” have been anathema to Americans living in America’s Heartland, the ones responsible for an American Businessman and Entrepreneur being elected our 45th President.

Those who sit in judgment of us average Americans like the Pharisees in the ancient Holy Land are going to have to climb down from their bar stools at the Washington Capitol Hill Country Club, and come home to visit us “common” people, attend ballgames, picnics, charitable public events, and even…GASP!…attend church with us, if they wish to represent average Americans in our Sovereign Nation’s Halls of Power again.

However, realistically, I do not see any of my suggestions coming to pass.

Democrats are too ensconced is their own belief system which states that…

  1. Americans are “jingoistic”.
  2. America is responsible for all of the world’s ills.
  3. The evils of American Capitalism are responsible for the world’s climate, not the God of Abraham.
  4. Perversion is perfectly normal.
  5. They ARE “The Smartest People in the Room”.

There are many more “Tenets of Faith” that the Democrats believe. However, for the sake of brevity, I will move on.

Years ago, the Democratic Party and reality took divergent paths.

In fact, as MS. Clift mentioned, the seeds for today’s “New Bolsheviks were probably planted with the nomination of George McGovern as the Democratic Party Presidential Candidate in 1972.

Unless they can find their way back to reality, their political party is destined to go the way of the Whigs.

Considering their fondness for relative morality, situational ethics, and purposeful obtuseness, perhaps they should keep traveling the path that they are presently on…attempting to find something…ANYTHING to impeach President Trump on.

Then, they can just go ahead and place a death sentence on their political party by nominating a Far Left candidate to run for President in 2020.

Their party’s slow, painful demise will be great for the Popcorn Industry….

and America.

The Pelosi-led House of Representatives has already opened the lid of the porcelain receptacle to begin the Dems’ downward descent into oblivion.

Pass the salt and butter, please.

MAGA!

John Legend Says Trump “Needs to Apologize for Demonizing Muslims” and to Speak Out Against “White Nationalism”

March 19, 2019

john-legend

FoxNews.com reports that

John Legend said that President Trump needs to speak out against hateful ideology, and “needs to apologize for demonizing Muslims” after 50 people were killed at mosque shootings in New Zealand on Friday.

 The singer, in an interview published by NowThis on Sunday, said that, following shootings that occurred in Christchurch, in which dozens were killed and injured, the president owes an apology.

“He needs to apologize for demonizing Muslims,” Legend said. “He needs to apologize for demonizing brown people who have tried to come here and have a better life. He characterizes their desire to come here and work and feed their family as an invasion.”

White House says enough is enough after Trump’s rhetoric is blamed for New Zealand massacre
 
Following the massacre, Trump said the attacks were a “horrible, horrible thing,” but later said that illegal immigrants seeking to enter the U.S. are part of an “invasion.”

“When people of such influence and such stature are endorsing such a hateful, evil ideology, it emboldens those who will go out and do something really evil and nasty, like what happened in New Zealand,” Legend said. “We need the president to speak out against it.”

Legend, 40, said Trump has “been wrong using this rhetoric and anyone who’s encouraged him or cheered him on in this kind of rhetoric needs to apologize as well.”

“They need to make it clear that it’s not acceptable for us to use this kind of violent rhetoric that leads to this kind of violent action,” the “All of Me” singer told the news outlet.

He added that white nationalism is a “global threat” which has inspiration “coming from America right now, and the American president. Our American president needs to say, ‘This is evil. I don’t endorse it. I don’t embrace it. I’m not winking at it. I’m not equivocating about it. This is evil and I speak out against it.'”

The alleged gunman of the attack called Trump “a symbol of renewed white identity,” but Trump downplayed any threat posed by white nationalism.

He said he didn’t believe white nationalism was a rising threat around the world, and said: “I think it’s a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess. … If you look at what happened in New Zealand, perhaps that’s the case. I don’t know enough about it yet. But it’s certainly a terrible thing.”

A small group of nutjobs CAN cause a lot of very, very serious problems.

Just look at the problems being caused by the House Democrats.

But, I digress.

White Nationalism is the offense du jour being touted by the Far Left Democratic Party.

What ever happened to the words “psychopath” and “nutjob” to describe an animal like the mass murdered in New Zealand?

To counter-balance the claims of a “severe” threat of “White Nationalists” springing up all over the world, I was going to list all of the attacks by Radical Islamists since the 1970s, a list found, believe or not, on the Liberal online “source for all things” Wikipedia.

However, it was so dadblamed long, it would have made my daily offering resemble a copy of “War and Peace”.

Here is a link to that list of atrocities committed by radical followers of “The Religion of Peace.

Liberals are so desperate to somehow get Trump out of office that they are literally throwing anything and everything at him, including accusing him of being insensitive to Muslims and supporting the behavior they are referring to a “White Nationalism”.

This kind of attack is nothing new.

In American Politics, as far as anybody can remember, that is still alive and kicking, you have had those of a political ideology who were Pro-American and Gung Ho about all the things that this country stands for. And, on the other side, you had those of a political ideology who criticized everything that America stood for, and still stands for, to this day.

From those who believed that Communism would be great for America back in the 1950s, to those in the 1960’s, who wanted to “tune in, turn on, and drop out”, and spit on our returning Servicemen, to those of the 1970s who were naive pacifists like their President, Jimmy Carter, to those in the 1980s, who were part of the “Me Generation”, to those whom we call “Progressives” (a misnomer) or “Modern Liberals” in our present generation, Including particularly The New Bolsheviks of the Far Left Democratic Party Obama and all of their “useful idiots” in Hollywood and the Music Industry, there has always been a minority segment of American Society, who despise everything that this land, which was given us by the Almighty and was fought for and died for by those before us, stands for, while they reap all the benefits of America the Beautiful.

Through the last several decades, the Democratic Party, once the party of the “Middle Class Working American” has devolved into the political party of special interest groups and has become the champion and practitioner of the “Tyranny of the Minority”.

What we have heah is failure to communicate. – Strother Martin, “Cool Hand Luke”.

While spending time on Facebook Political Pages, which I really should cut down on, as it tends to increase my blood pressure to Mt. Vesuvius Levels, I continuously encounter individuals who echo the sentiments of the Far Left self-proclaimed geniuses who cost the Democratic Party the Presidency and who believe that anybody who works hard for a living and believes in God and Country, is a Jingoistic imbecile.

Mow, they have upped the ante by calling those Americans of the Caucasian Persuasion, like President Donald J. Trump, who believe in American Exceptionalism, “White Nationalists”.

The same intolerant idiots who have decided that they do not need to hire “straight white males”.

By the way, according to the dictionary, Jingoism is an extreme chauvinism or nationalism marked especially by a belligerent foreign policy.

In other words, being guilty of “patriotism”, i.e., believing that America is the greatest country on the face of God’s Green Earth and believing in Traditional American Faith and Values.

During the 8 long years of the Obama Presidency,  children and young adults attending American Institutes of Learning from kindergarten to college campuses were taught by Liberal teachers and professors that America was “just another country” and that being a patriot was to somehow be close-minded, ignorant, and bigoted, not necessarily in that order.

Where the exceptionalism of America lies…is not in the Halls of Power…nor in the Halls of Academia. But, rather in the courage and spirit of the average American. A courage and spirit, which our history proves, has driven American Citizens to build a nation, which is indeed exceptional among all others and is worthy of national pride in it.

And, since we “straight white males” are a very big voting bloc, “The Smartest People in the Room”, the brain-trust of the Democratic Party, including their Radical Hispanic Chairman, Tom Perez, are sentencing themselves to failure for the next several national elections….no matter how much fake news and propaganda idiots like John Legend and the rest of those who are paid to entertain us attempt to disseminate.

You would have thought that they would have learned something from the night of November 8, 2016.

But, like comedian Ron White says,

You can’t fix stupid.

Rep. Collins Calls Mueller Report Vote “A Political Stunt” By the Democrats…Yes, It Was and Here’s Why

March 18, 2019

RTR4RX0J.jpg

FoxNews.com reports that

The top Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, Georgia Rep. Doug Collins, voted for the resolution calling for any final report in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation to be made public, but told Fox News on Sunday it was unnecessary.

“It was a political stunt by the Democrats who felt that they could divide Republicans into voting no upon it because at the end of the day after I looked at it, when they dropped it … they said this is nothing but simply a first-year law student’s restatement of what the regular regulations say that Mr. (Attorney General William) Barr is going to have to do,” he said on “Sunday Morning Futures” with Maria Bartiromo.

The House voted unanimously Thursday for the resolution, a symbolic action designed to urge Barr into releasing as much information as possible when the investigation is concluded.

The Democratic-backed resolution, which passed 420-0, comes as Mueller appears to be nearing an end to his investigation. Lawmakers in both parties have maintained there will have to be some sort of public resolution when the report is done — and privately hope that a report shows conclusions that are favorable to their own side.

Four Republicans voted present: Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz, Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar and Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie.

The nonbinding House resolution calls for the public release of any report Mueller provides to Barr, with an exception for classified material. The resolution also calls for the full report to be released to Congress.

“We know and you know, as you said earlier, that there’s not going to be collusion here. This is where it is going to be … very hard for the Democrats. All this was. Don’t be fooled by this. This was simply a stunt because they thought they could divide Republicans to make us look bad as not being transparent,” Collins said Sunday. “I have no problem being transparent with what we see is coming forward, and it’s within the regulation to say that this was nothing more than a political stunt.”

He called the resolution an act of nothingness.

“This is the sad part we’re at right now, Maria,” he told Bartiromo. “They have no agenda, they have nothing that they can actually put on the floor, so they wasted an entire week of the American taxpayers’ dollar to actually put a report on the floor that said nothing, basically except the same thing the regulations say that Mr. Barr needs to do so.”

President Trump tweeted Saturday: “I told leadership to let all Republicans vote for transparency. Makes us all look good and doesn’t matter. Play along with the game!”

…Democrats said they were unsatisfied with Barr’s answers and wanted a stronger commitment to releasing the full report, along with interview transcripts and other underlying evidence.

…Collins concluded Sunday to Bartiromo: “We just call their bluff, and just say, fine we can vote for this, because this is actually what Bill Barr said he is going to do. Why are we wasting the American people’s time?”

Good question, Rep. Collins.

On the Democrats’ part, their reason is as obvious as House Speaker Pelosi’s onset of dementia.

They are determined to find something…anything…through which they can accomplish their number one goal: the removal of President Donald J. Trump from office.

Their first priority stopped being the American Voters a long, long time ago.

The America Voter is now a distant third on their list of priorities, far behind the before mentioned delusional quest and their push to allow people living in our Sovereign Nation illegally to exercise OUR right grated to us as AMERICAN CITIZENS by the 26th Amendment to OUR Constitution…the right to vote and to decide OUR country’s future.

There is a “Plan B” part to the Democrats’ first priority. They wish to delay, obstruct, and grind to a complete halt the undeniable progress which President Trump has made in restoring America back to its rightful place among the nations.

With the advance word on the Mueller Report being that it is going to be a big “Nothingburger”, Shifty Adam Schiff and others have announced their plants to continue to “investigate” both the president and his family, delving deep into their lives, “investigating” matters which will have nothing at all to do with any sort of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential Election.

It reminds me of the investigations which the Soviet Politboro used to conduct on order to find out if citizens were loyal to the Communist Party” or not.

Going back further, these investigations which the feckless Democrats will oversee will also be reminiscent of the Spanish Inquisition.

What are they going to do?

Try to get the President’s family to “repent” from being Trumps?

Ladies and gentlemen, I firmly believe that America is now fighting a new war against fascism.

t’s not a war that is being fought with guns and bullets, But instead, it is being fought with School Walkouts, boycotts, Non-Profit Organizations funded by George Soros, Schoolchildren Spokespeople, anonymous sources, unproven baseless accusations, and the Vanguard of the Modern Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media.

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

By now, there’s some out there in the audience saying, “Oh Lord, the crazy old cracker’s overreacting again.”

No, Skippy, I’m not.

If you try to talk to a Liberal about this New Fascism, they will deny that there is any fascism going on at all. In fact, they will tell you that this never-ending Dog and Pony show known as the Russian Collusion Probe is “the will of the people” and they will site Democratically stacked push polls in order to back their opinion up.

When you ask a Democrat if President Trump is so horrible, then why is he consistently scoring higher in Presidential Approval Polls than his predecessor, Former (Thank God) President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm”, you will usually see their eyes glaze over, like a deer in the headlights, or experience a dramatic pause in posting, if you are on the Internet.

Liberals can not legitimately defend their positions, such as the suppression of the Second Amendment Rights of average Americans, the Silent Coup by those members of the DOJ and FBI against President Trump, the “Caning” of Judge Kavanaugh, and the lack of any kind of positive activity on behalf of the American people coming out of the Democrat Majority House of Representatives.

Fascism, in any form, remains indefensible, even, when a spineless Republican-led Congress sits idly by while they watch the Far Left indoctrinate our children and grandchildren and attempt to use them as their own version of the Communists’ “useful idiots” and when they try to assist in the now not-so-silent coup of a Republican President.

Why indeed, Rep. Collins?

New Mexico Changes Columbus Day to “Indigenous Peoples’ Day”…Why are States Bowing to the “Perpetually Offended”?

March 17, 2019

columbusdayparade

To be filed under the heading “Liberals ruin everything”…

FoxNews.com reports that

New Mexico’s state Senate voted Friday to replace Columbus Day with Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

The Senate voted 22-15 in favor of the proposal, which had already passed in the state House, and if Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signs the bill, New Mexico will become the fourth state to do away with the holiday that pays homage to Christopher Columbus, The Albuquerque Journal reported.

Critics of the bill argue that the measure only serves to further divide the community.

“I think this bill is more about dividing us than bringing us together,” Sen. Mark Moores, R-Albuquerque, said, according to nmpoliticalreport.com.

Notre Dame to cover historic Christopher Columbus murals that have been hanging for 130 years

A proposal to honor the state’s Native American communities on a separate day in February was reportedly shot down.

The celebration of Columbus Day, held on the second Monday of every October, has become an increasingly fractious affair in recent years. Some cities opt to honor the nation’s indigenous people with their own day, which has been recognized by the United Nations since 1994.

The explorer’s history is a divisive one. Some historians assert that Columbus committed atrocities against the Native Americans he encountered as he came to America.

Dear Lord.

Let’s just rewrite all of America’s Holidays while we’re at it.

Wait a minute. I better not suggest that. The perpetually offended Liberals in this country would try to do it.

During the time of Christopher Columbus, scholars knew that the world was round a fact which dated back to the ancient Greeks. And, because the world was round, people believed that a ship traveling west from Europe would sail clear through to Asia. Still though, a lot of folks believed that such a westward journey was impossible. Columbus, an Italian, was convinced that he could do it. He persuaded King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Spain to sponsor his exploration and search for riches.

On October 12, 1492, Columbus landed on a small island in the Bahamas, convinced that he had reached his destination of Asia. Although he was not the first European to discover the Americas (Vikings, among others, had visited before), his voyage got people to push for European exploration of the hemisphere.

The first celebration of Columbus’s landing in the New World took place in 1792. It was organized by the Columbian Order (Society of St. Tammany) in New York City. In 1937, Columbus Day was declared a national holiday by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Since 1971, it has been observed on the second Monday of October. Many Americans celebrate their Italian-American heritage on Columbus Day with parades and other activities.

Bing the ol’ cracka that I am, I just can’t get over how sensitive today’s Far Left is.

If you’re constantly worried about offending someone, you will never get anything great accomplished.

And, perhaps that is the reason that Liberals remain in a constant state of being offended.

The very fact of American Exceptionalism offends them.

Their hero, the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm) wanted America to be just another country, answerable to the United Nations.

In fact, he thought so little of our Sovereign Nation, that he constantly was apologizing to Foreign Leaders on our behalf, even though American citizens never asked him to.

If Liberals were this offended back when I was growing up, my father and I never would have gotten to watch the television shows which we both enjoyed, like the Dean Martin Celebrity Roast, the Red Skelton Show, the Jackie Gleason Show, and the Flip Wilson Show.

Clerow “Flip” Wilson was born on on December 8, 1933, in Jersey City, New Jersey. He worked across the country as a comedian before becoming famous through his appearances on programs like The Tonight Show and Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-In. He soon starred in his own variety series The Flip Wilson Show, which first came on the air in 1970 and became a massive, award-winning hit. The show ended in ’74, with Wilson opting to stay out of the spotlight. He died in California on November 25, 1998.

One of Flip’s most famous routines, which he would have been forbidden to perform nowadays thanks to our perpetually offended Liberals, was a hysterically funny take on the subject of today’s post, Christopher Columbus.

With all of the division and hate being championed by the “New Bolsheviks” of the Democratic Party, I thought that we all needed a good laugh from a man who loved making ALL OF US LAUGH.

I hope you enjoy this story from an American Legend.

God bless.

Vichy Republican John McCain Gave FISA Dossier to FBI and Media Outlets One Month After Trump’s Election

March 16, 2019

160629-john-mccain-mn-1105_640338c3828c9d8d9470b6ad32c00462.nbcnews-fp-1200-800

The great Billy Joel sings “We didn’t start the fire”.

Well, according to those in the know, the late Senator from Arizona, John McCain, did.

FoxNews.com reports that

Newly unsealed court filings show how the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., and an associate shared with the FBI and a host of media outlets the unverified dossier that alleged the Russians had compromising information on now-President Trump.

McCain had denied being the source for BuzzFeed after it published the dossier, which was funded by the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, but had acknowledged giving it to the FBI.

In a newly unsealed declaration from September, former senior counterintelligence FBI agent Bill Priestap confirmed that the FBI received a copy of the first 33 pages of the dossier in December 2016 from McCain.

In another filing, David Kramer — a former State Department official and McCain associate — said in a Dec. 13, 2017, deposition that the dossier was given to him by author and former British spy Christopher Steele, which he then provided to more than a dozen journalists at outlets including CNN, BuzzFeed and The Washington Post. The details were first reported by The Daily Caller.

The report was also shared with State Department official Victoria Nuland, Obama National Security Council official Celeste Wallander and Rep. Adam Kinzinger, R-Ill.

The filings were unsealed as part of an ongoing libel case against BuzzFeed by a Russian businessman.

In his deposition, Kramer said that McCain gave a copy of the dossier to then-FBI Director James Comey on Dec. 9. Kramer told investigators that it was the sense from Fusion GPS founder Glenn Simpson that “having Senator McCain provide it to the FBI would give it a little more oomph than it had had up until that point.”

“I think they felt a senior Republican was better to be the recipient of this rather than a Democrat because if it were a Democrat, I think that the view was that it would have been dismissed as a political attack,” he said.

Kramer also described how BuzzFeed News reporter Ken Bensinger came to get hold of the dossier, before the outlet became the first to publish it in its entirety.

He said that he showed Bensinger the dossier in December at the McCain Institute, but did not allow him to take pictures of it. But Kramer said he left Bensinger alone to read the memos and, in that time, Bensinger took photos of the dossier.

Kramer said he panicked when he saw that BuzzFeed News had published the document in its entirety online on Jan. 10, and immediately sought to have it taken down.

“I called Mr. Bensinger, and my first words out of my mouth were ‘you are gonna get people killed,’” he said.

The FBI extensively relied on the dossier in its warrant applications to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) court in seeking to surveil Trump aide Carter Page — even though some of the dossier’s claims have been called into question, including a claim that former Trump lawyer Michael Cohen traveled to Prague to pay off Russian hackers and other more salacious claims about Trump himself.

Back on February 1, 2018, TheHIll.com relayed a slightly different story…

“The fact that half to three-quarters of the evidence the FBI used to unleash the most awesome of surveillance powers upon Donald Trump’s inner circle came from sources tied directly to his Democratic opponent should worry us all, especially when that happened during an election,” said one senior Republican directly familiar with the evidence, describing the party’s core concerns.

“The FBI allowed itself to be used by Clinton partisans to parlay single-sourced, mostly unverified evidence into a counterintelligence probe with clear weaknesses that weren’t disclosed,” the source added.

Sources in both parties and in law enforcement say the emergence of Steele and his dossier in the summer of 2016 gave the FBI the jolt to open a full counterintelligence probe into alleged Trump-Russia collusion. 

Steele, a British intelligence officer for decades, had provided reliable evidence that helped the FBI in a prior foreign corruption case and his early package of information contained multiple allegations of Trump-Russia collusion organized and sourced liked real raw intelligence, sources said. 

So the FBI put great credence in Steele’s work product when it approached the courts for legal surveillance authority, even though much of what Steele provided could not be immediately corroborated, the sources said. 

Steele was employed by the research firm Fusion GPS, which was in turn being paid to do opposition research on Trump by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC).

Fusion GPS was initially hired by the Washington Free Beacon, a conservative website backed in part by Republican donor Paul Singer, to dig into Trump. As Trump was clinching the GOP nomination, the Free Beacon told Fusion GPS to stop doing research. Fusion GPS was then hired by Clinton and the DNC through the law firm Perkins Coie.

(Now, pay attention to these next few paragraphs. Here’s the interesting part.)

Republican investigators say they have evidence that Steele first approached the FBI with his allegations on July 5, 2016, the same day then-FBI Director James Comey announced he would not pursue criminal charges against Clinton for passing more than 100 classified documents through her private email server.

Republicans believe the date of Steele’s approach to the FBI is evidence of politics, since his employer was being paid by a Clinton campaign that for months was angered by the bureau’s probe of the email controversy.

Republican investigators say it is unclear exactly when the FBI learned that Steele was being paid by Clinton’s campaign. But by late July 2016, just weeks after he first contacted the FBI, the formal counterintelligence probe was opened, the sources said.

The late Senator John McCain spent most of his political life playing both ends against the middle to his own advantage.

The fact that he facilitated the FISA Dossier getting into the hands of the Obama Administration’s FBI is not a shock to me.

And, neither is the fact that, according to the discrepancies between what the “Republican Investigators” told The Hill.com and what the newly-released transcripts reveal, some of McCain’s fellow Republicans on Capitol Hill were covering his duplicity.

McCain’s hatred for everything that Trump represented, in terms of upsetting the Washingtonian Status Quo either blinded the Senator from Arizona to the fact that he was doing Obama and Hillary’s dirty work or he knew the source of the funding for the FISA Dossier and he just didn’t care.

The second scenario would not surprise me at all.

McCain was an Old School Politician, a Vichy Republican who would screw his own political party in a heartbeat.

The word “populism” first reappeared in the American Lexicon, when Sarah Palin almost dragged John McCain’s RINO Rear across the Finish Line, in the Presidential Election of 2008.

The Grassroots Movement, which began back then, through the hard work of average Middle Class Americans, like you and me, led us to a seminal moment in American Politics. on the night of November 8, 2016.

A “Citizen Statesman”, such as our Founding Fathers envisioned, became the Republican Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America.

Trump know that he had to build a coalition, in order to win the Presidency.

Ronald Reagan, and, I am not comparing Trump to Reagan, figured out in 1980, that, in order to win the presidency, you had to bypass the Republican Establishment and go directly to the American People.

That is exactly what Donald J. Trump did.

Looking back, I are pretty sure that the “upstart” Trump’s candidacy angered the late Senator from Arizona.

And, what better way to make sure that the Status Quo in Washington, DC would be maintained than to sabotage the presidency of a rank outsider?

Now, I realize that Senator McCain is no longer here to defend himself….but…

“At this point, what difference does it make?”

Senate Vichy Reps Help Dems Vote to End Emergency Declaration…Trump Will Veto…Vichy Reps Still Clueless

March 15, 2019

D1pHwTfUcAAPEQy

FoxNews.com reports that

Senate Republicans joined their Democratic colleagues on Thursday in voting to block President Trump’s border emergency declaration — a move that will prompt the president’s first-ever veto.

The president made his intentions crystal clear, tweeting “VETO!” moments after the resolution cleared Congress. The White House said Trump likely would issue the veto Friday.

The measure passed 59-41 as a dozen Republicans joined Democrats in voting for the resolution, despite White House efforts to keep the GOP united on the issue of border security. Those GOP members who backed the resolution cited concerns about the expansion of presidential powers.

“I’m going to be voting in favor of the resolution of disapproval,” Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, told reporters ahead of the vote. “This is a constitutional question, it’s a question of the balance of power that is core to our constitution.”

“This is not about the president or border security, in fact I support border security, I support a barrier,” he said.

The other Republicans who voted to oppose the declaration were Sens. Mike Lee, R-Utah; Rob Portman, R-Ohio; Susan Collins, R-Maine; Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska; Marco Rubio, R-Fla.; Rand Paul, R-Ky.; Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn.; Roger Wicker, R-Miss.; Roy Blunt, R-Mo.; Jerry Moran, R-Kan.; and Pat Toomey, R-Pa.

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., had said he would oppose the declaration but reversed course on the Senate floor, saying that he was “sympathetic” to Trump’s push to deal with the crisis at the border.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., before the vote, said he “takes his hat off” to Republicans voting with Democrats, while accusing Trump of “going around Congress” with the declaration.

“This is a momentous day,” he said, declaring that the balance of power was shifting back toward Congress.

The measure heads next to Trump’s desk, having previously passed the House. However, Trump plans to veto, and it’s unlikely the House and Senate could muster the required two-thirds majority to override.

Trump originally issued the emergency declaration last month after Congress granted only a fraction of the $5.7 billion he requested for a wall on the southern border. Declaring a national emergency allows Trump to steer an extra $3.6 billion to the wall.

I have been posting my thoughts and opinions everyday since April of 2018.

Somewhere along the way, I coined the term “Vichy Republicans” to describe those professional politicians up on Capitol Hill who acted more like squishy left-leaning members of the opposite party than Rock-ribbed Republicans.

Instead, they were and apparently remain “go along to get along” milksops, whose closest thing to a spine which they could ever claim was found on the side of their college textbooks.

Now, just as they did throughout the nightmarish years of the Obama Administration, these Vichy Republicans have proven that they are clueless as to the wishes of the average American Voters who gave them their cushy government jobs.

Their fear as to what the next Democrat President might do in regards to issuing their own “Emergency Declarations” (assuming that the Dems ever have another Presidential Candidate elected), has apparently overwhelmed their concern for the safety of their fellow Americans and their compassion for the “Angel Moms” and other family members of those already murdered by illegal aliens who should not have been in our country to begin with.

The cluelessness of these Vichy Republicans also extends to a lack of understanding as to why none of their hand-picked 2016 Presidential Candidates became the 45th President of the United States of America and American Businessman and Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump was elected.

The simple reason for Trump’s election was average Americans’ anger as the Washingtonian Status Quo…the same status quo that was on display in the Senate, yesterday.

Americans voted for Trump because they wanted someone in the Oval Office who cared more about us than the opinion of their fellow politicians representing the Democratic Party. A party which, while holding the office of the presidency, attempted to flush America down the porcelain receptacle and replace our Constitutional Republic with a form of Marxism they euphemistically call “Democratic Socialism”.

Evidently, those 12 Republicans who voted with their Democratic Brethren yesterday, miss the days of the Washingtonian Status Quo.

Too bad.

President Trump, with the stroke of a pen, is about to remind them of the efficacy of his Presidential Powers.

He is trying to make America great again.

The Vichy Republicans in the Senate can either help him AND US AVERAGE AMERICANS in that effort or simply resign, like others of their ilk already have, and go home.

America has already experienced one Benedict Arnold.

We do not need any more.

The Manafort Sentencing, the New Charges, the Mueller Probe, and the SDNY – The Ties That Bind

March 14, 2019

untitled (267)

FoxNews.com reports that

Ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort was indicted on a raft of state charges in New York Wednesday – moments after a federal judge handed down a sentence in a separate case that ensured the longtime GOP operative will serve nearly seven more years in prison.

The New York indictment on mortgage fraud, conspiracy, and other state charges alleges that the 69-year-old Manafort and others falsified business records to illegally obtain millions of dollars. The new charges were announced by Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance just minutes after U.S. District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson, of the District of Columbia, sentenced Manafort as part of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, leaving him with 81 months to serve behind bars as part of that case.

Vance’s charges are at the state level, and allege that Manafort committed residential mortgage fraud, attempted residential mortgage fraud, conspiracy and falsification of business records. If convicted of all charges, Manafort could face up to 25 years in prison.

“No one is beyond the law in New York,” Vance said in a statement Wednesday. “Following an investigation commenced by our office in March 2017, a Manhattan grand jury has charged Mr. Manafort with state criminal violations which strike at the heart of New York’s sovereign interests, including the integrity of our residential mortgage market.”

According to the indictment, Manafort, from Dec. 22, 2015 through Jan. 17, 2017, “engaged in a scheme constituting a systematic ongoing course of conduct with intent to defraud more than one person and to obtain property from more than one person by false and fraudulent pretenses, representations and promises, and so obtained property with a value in excess of one thousand dollars from one and more such persons.”

Meanwhile, minutes earlier in Washington D.C., Jackson nearly doubled Manafort’s prison term. Jackson’s term was for 73 months in connection with Manafort’s guilty plea related to foreign lobbying and witness tampering. But Jackson ordered a portion to be served concurrently with a 47-month sentence given by Judge T.S. Ellis in federal court in Virginia last week. Manafort, though, was credited with nine months time served.

The sentencing concluded one of the highest-profile cases to emerge from Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates, though the charges against Manafort did not pertain to Russia collusion or any work he did with the Trump campaign in 2016.

In a related story from 12/8/17 found on TheHIll.com,

Conservative group FreedomWatch is arguing for the dismissal of the judge presiding over its lawsuit seeking the removal of Robert Mueller from the special counsel investigation into Russian interference in the presidential election, citing the judge’s political bias toward Democrats. 

The group, helmed by conservative lawyer Larry Klayman, also alleges that Judge Amy Berman Jackson has a “manifest conflict of interest” in the case because she is also presiding over the trial of Paul Manafort, President Trump’s former campaign chairman who has been charged in connection with Mueller’s investigation.

FreedomWatch in November sued to force the Justice Department to investigate leaks coming from the special counsel and alleged conflicts of interest among staff, arguing that Mueller should be removed from the case. 

In a new motion filed in U.S. district court in Washington, the conservative group argues that Jackson should recuse herself or be disqualified from the case, citing her “inherent manifest political biases and conflicts of interest.” 

In particular, Klayman argues that Jackson exhibited a “deep-seated favoritism toward Democrat political interests” and Hillary Clinton, Trump’s Democratic opponent in the presidential race, when she dismissed a case he litigated on behalf of the parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 Benghazi terror attacks. 

In that case, the plaintiffs alleged that Clinton’s use of a private email server to transmit sensitive information during her time as secretary of State led to the deaths of their sons.

They also alleged that Clinton defamed the fallen Americans when she publicly disputed their accounts of the circumstances around the attack on the campaign trail. Jackson dismissed the lawsuit in May.

Klayman also argues that Jackson “rushed” to issue an order to show cause in the FreedomWatch case against the Justice Department, which he says “evidences her mindset of having pre-judged this matter from the inception.”

Huh.

In perhaps another related story posted Tuesday by the CBS Local Affiliate in Dallas/Ft. Worth.

United States Representative John Ratcliffe (R-TX) tweeted late Tuesday that, according to former Federal Bureau of Investigation lawyer Lisa Page, President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice was influencing the FBI’s investigation into the Hillary Clinton classified email investigation.

“Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information,” Ratcliffe tweeted.

What makes things interesting is that Judge Jackson is a Liberal Democrat, who was nominated for her position by Hillary Clinton’s Boss as Secretary of State, President Barack Hussein Obama.

As far as the New York charges filed against Manafort are concerned, isn’t it interesting how so much of the fallout and judicial action being taken in the “Russian Collusion Investigation by Mueller and his Democratic Lynch Mob is centered around the State of New York, specifically the Southern District of New York in addition to the courtroom of Judge Amy Berman Jackson?

The SDNY has been the stomping grounds of several of those involved in this ongoing Legal Lynch Mob out to get President Trump, including Former FBI Director Comey, FBI IG Horowitz, Mueller Investigator Andrew Weissman, and Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance, Jr.

All of them either worked in that office or had judicial standing in that district.

For a long time, I have been stating that the Mueller Investigation, otherwise known as the Russian Collusion Fairy Tale, was like a giant spider’s web, leading back to the Obama Administration, during which the Deep State Operation to stop Donald J. Trump from becoming President began.

I also observed early on that the Southern District of New York was playing a major role, as well.

As the late, great Leonard Nimoy as Mr. Spock used to observe,

Fascinating.

Liberal Elite Parents on Both Coasts Caught in “Pay for Play” College Admissions Scam

March 13, 2019

college-admissions-scandal

You’ve got gazillions of people following the rules, trying to get in the way they’re told they have to get in because they don’t have money to spread around — and they’re finding out now that the case and system is rigged against them. I’m sorry, since the left has politicized everything, I will point out that it’s leftists that what caught violating the law, gaming the system. Maybe not all of them are. Who knows? We don’t know all the names here.

But since we’re talking Hollywood, what are the odds? – Rush Limbaugh 3/12/2019

FoxNews.com reports that

After a frenzied few hours in which federal authorities made several high profile arrests — and outlined a top-secret investigation into an alleged scam involving rich and famous clients paying millions to a network of counselors and coaches to ensure their privileged children be granted admission to some of the country’s most prestigious colleges — a judge said on Tuesday that jailed actress Felicity Huffman, accused of paying a bribe to help get her daughter into a top school, was eligible for release on $250,000 bond. 
 
A magistrate judge also ordered on Tuesday that the “Desperate Housewives” alum restrict her travel to the continental United States.

Court documents said Huffman, 54, paid $15,000, which she disguised as a charitable donation, so her daughter could take part in the college entrance-exam cheating scam.

The documents stated that a cooperating witness met with Huffman and her husband, actor William H. Macy, at their Los Angeles home and explained to them that he “controlled” a testing center and could have someone secretly change her daughter’s answers. The person told investigators the couple agreed to the plan.

The judge asked Huffman: “I’m not asking you to admit or deny the charges against you but do you understand what the government claims you did?” She replied: “Yes.”

The court appearance came hours after it was revealed that Huffman and fellow Hollywood actress Lori Loughlin were among the boldfaced names in a veritable who’s who of the rich and powerful charged in the case.

The actress, dressed in a black sweatshirt, glasses, and her hair pulled back into a ponytail, looked visibly tired in court on Tuesday as her lawyer argued for her release on her own recognizance because “she is not the kind of person who is going to become an international fugitive over this matter.” The prosecution would not accept that, citing her net worth. Fox News has learned that Huffman and Macy have real estate assets in excess of $20 million dollars and stocks worth around $4 million.

Macy, 69, dressed in a gray jacket and blue jeans, took notes during his wife’s hearing. He looked engaged and focused on the terms of Huffman’s release as they were being read aloud.

Huffman’s defense pushed back after the prosecution requested that the actress not be able to communicate with her husband since he’s a witness in the case. The judge balked at the request and excluded him from known witnesses or subjects with whom she may not be in contact.

Also among the 13 defendants appearing in court on Tuesday was “Fuller House” star Loughlin’s famed fashion designer husband, Mossimo Giannulli.

The judge ruled Giannulli will be released on a $1 million dollar bond, securing the couple’s home as bond. Giannulli’s attorney said part of the reason they came to this agreement was with the hopes that Loughlin, also indicted in the case, would receive the same bond deal as well as be allowed to travel to Vancouver. The judge also ordered that Giannulli restrict his travel to the continental United States.

Loughlin, who did not appear in court on Tuesday, reportedly has been filming a movie in Vancouver. According to multiple reports, the actress landed at LAX on Tuesday during the court hearing.

A rep for Loughlin did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.

Federal authorities have also charged college coaches and others in the case.

The racketeering conspiracy charges ensnared coaches at schools such as Wake Forest University, Georgetown and the University of Southern California. Investigators said the coaches accepted bribes in exchange for admitting students as athletes, regardless of their ability.

Investigators said parents would pay a predetermined amount to college entrance consultant William Rick Singer, who then would give the funds to coaches, SAT or ACT administrators.

The alleged fund amounts ranged from several thousand dollars to $6 million.

In other words, gentle readers, the same “smartest people in the room” who live in the Northeast and on the Left Coast, who have been telling us how to live our lives and whom to vote for as President of our country for all these years, have been found to not be the moral arbiters whom they have claimed to be.

As the late, great Claude Rains said in the classic movie “Casablanca”,

“I’m shocked. Shocked, I tell you.”

These parents of wealth and influence ran a “pay for Play” racket, not unlike the one that their 2016 Presidential Candidate of Choice, Hillary Clinton ran when she was Secretary of state under Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Whereas Hillary was charging Foreign Leaders exorbitant amounts paid to her and Bubba’s Clinton Foundation for access to her as Secretary of State, the wealthy parents who have been charged in this massive scandal paid out the wazoo (that’s a medical term) for their precious little spoiled high school graduate to attend a prestigious college such as Stanford or Yale.

…Even if they graduated Thank you, Laudy instead of Magna cum Laude.

Just as the Clintons, the Obamas, and the members of the Far Left Democratic Party up on Capitol Hill who have been making the headlines lately have shown us “little people”, otherwise known as average Americans, out here in America’s Heartland, “rules are for commoners”, not the Elite.

Or, at least that is the way it has been in the past, especially if you are a privileged Liberal from the Northeast or the Left Coast.

Just think of all of those average Americans who had worked hard in high school and who deserved to attend those colleges and could not, because some spoiled Liberal Elite Brat took their place.

You want to know what is scary?

According to Harvard’s Former Dean of their Law School, Professor Alan Dershowitz,

The federal racketeering indictment filed Tuesday in a college admissions scandal in which wealthy parents allegedly paid bribes to get their children into elite universities is the most serious such scandal ever exposed – and may get worse.

The sense of entitlement by the 33 parents charged in these cases is representative of the attitude of the Liberals who live in these areas.

Their moral compasses are askew, but they don’t care, because of their sense of privilege and station in life.

If average Americans had not rebelled against this attitude and their Presidential Candidate of choice which they were shoving down our throats, can you imagine what we would be experiencing as a nation by now?

I don’t even want to think about it.

Thankfully, just as in the case of these 33 parents who got caught, sometimes the good guys win.

Trump’s 2020 Budget Plan Calls for Expansion of Work Requirements for Welfare Benefit Programs

March 12, 2019

694940094001_6012524209001_6012534696001-vs

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

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump kicked off a new battle with Congress on Monday by releasing his fiscal 2020 budget plan seeking billions more in funding for a border wall and controversial work requirements for Americans collecting a variety of welfare benefits.

Both proposals are sure to face resistance from Democrats, especially coming off a partial shutdown triggered by a border wall dispute that only ended when Trump declared a national emergency over immigration — a step being litigated in the courts and challenged in Congress. The requests are part of the president’s $4.7 trillion budget plan.

Escalating Trump’s pursuit of wall funding, the White House in the new budget requested an additional $8.6 billion to build the wall along the U.S.-Mexico border—seeking $5 billion from Congress, plus $3.6 billion from the military construction budget, for fiscal 2020.

Meanwhile, the budget aims to implement new welfare requirements — namely, that Americans 18-65 years old work at least 20 hours a week in a job, a job training program or a community service program to secure a range of benefits and aid.

According to the administration, the work requirement would apply to federal programs like food stamps, Medicaid, and federal housing, but would come with a hardship exemption. Last year, the administration opened the door for states to impose work requirements for Medicaid recipients. This part of the budget proposal would bring those work requirements to the federal level.

The proposal would represent an expansion of work requirements, though some already are in place. For the past several administrations, able-bodied recipients of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (food stamps) have mostly had to work at least 80 hours a month — while recipients of traditional welfare known as Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) have also faced work requirements.

I am sure that there will be a bunch of fussin’ and hollerin” from Democratic Lawmakers over the President’s proposal to add work requirements to the Federal Programs liosted in the above article.

After all, it was Democratic Party Politics which lost Americans their jobs, broke up their family units, and put them in perpetual servitude to the State to begin with.

Back during the 2012 Presidential Race, the “Severely Conservative” Republican Party Legacy Candidate, Mitt Romney, stirred up a hornet’s nest by stating that 47% of Americans were receiving some form of Government Entitlements, such as SNAP, Welfare, etc. It didn’t really matter that he was absolutely correct. He was considered a rich out-of-touch, uncaring, old white guy, from that moment on. He was positively vilified by President Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm), the rest of the Democratic Party, and their Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media.

Sound familiar?

Romney was attempting, rather indelicately, to make the point that, with this American Freedom that we have been blessed with, also comes the burden of responsibility. Romney was trying to illuminate the fact that American is still the Land of  Opportunity, and that “God helps those who help themselves”.

I don’t believe that the Republican Presidential Candidate was attempting to be malicious by calling out the 47%. He was merely trying to paint a verbal picture as to how the sense of entitlement, that is forcefully held by some Americans, and has been facilitated by the Democrats, had spun way out of control, becoming an immeasurable burden on American Taxpayers, and an immense anchor, holding our economy back.

It was that same selfish sense of entitlement that fueled the backlash against “Mittens” by America’s low information voters, who were certainly egged on by their “plantation Masters”, the Democratic Party, and their “Straw Bosses”, in the Main Stream Media.

Around that same time, the number 47 came up in the National Media once again, as it was reported that 47% of American Babies were being born out of wedlock.

To the Wayback Machine, Sherman!

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, encouraged by those who make their living off of the misfortunes of others…Democratic Politicians and the Owners and Operators of Numerous Shady Politically Motivated “Non-Profit” Organizations.

I know. I spent from January 2011 – June 2012 working in our county’s WIN Job Center.

While at this Employment Office, I was able to observe folks down on their luck, struggling to find work and survive in this economy.

I also saw American families whose existence living on the Government Dole had become generational.

It is these people whom the Democrats continue to hypnotize into believing that Uncle Sugar loves them, and is their only solution to surviving a stifling existence.

They are so, so wrong.

The strength and vitality of America does not come from the benevolence of a Nanny-state Federal Government.

As the greatest American President of our lifetime, Ronald Reagan said:

The nine words you never want to hear are:  I’m from the Government and I’m here to help.

Being enslaved to the Government Dole steals one’s ambition.  It takes away any impetus or desire to create a better life for yourself and your family, to challenge yourself to pick yourself up by your bootstraps and pursue the American Dream.  It makes you reliant on a politically motivated spider’s web full of government bureaucrats who view you and your family as job security.

I watched American citizens trapped in this web of government bureaucracy,  so numbed of any initiative that they once had, that they seemed offended that they actually had to prove that they inquired about three jobs that week in order to keep their “benefits”.  Others seemed puzzled that they had to search through the state data base and pick out a job that they wanted to talk to an interviewer about receiving a referral to, and weren’t just simply handed a job when they walked through the door.

Additionally, now there is a preponderance of Americans of child-bearing age who don’t have enough self-control, self-esteem, and moral turpitude to actually get married before they bring an innocent life into this world?

I’m not a bit surprised.

Welcome to the Democrats’ “Great Society”.

President Trump and his Administration are attempting to encourage those trapped in a cycle of poverty to break free through self-determination and hard work which will lead to individual achievement and self-responsibility.

And, that is why Modern American Liberals will cry out against these new regulations.

It will dismantle the Socialist Nanny State which they have been purposefully building for decades….

while MAKING AMERICAN GREAT AGAIN.

AOC – Reagan “Pitted White People Against Minorities”, Blasts Capitalism, Lauds “Democratic Socialism”

March 11, 2019

Screen-Shot-2019-03-09-at-8.43.57-PM

FoxNews.com reports that

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez slammed political moderates at the South by Southwest Conference & Festivals in Austin, Texas, calling their views “misplaced” as she defended her progressive politics in a room full of supporters.

“Moderate is not a stance. It’s just an attitude towards life of, like, ‘meh,’” the New York Democrat said Saturday during an interview with Briahna Gray, senior politics editor for the Intercept. “We’ve become so cynical, that we view ‘meh,’ or ‘eh’ — we view cynicism as an intellectually superior attitude, and we view ambition as youthful naivete when … the greatest things we have ever accomplished as a society have been ambitious acts of visions, and the ‘meh’ is just worshipped now, for what?”

The self-declared Democratic socialist also criticized the treatment of minorities throughout American history, from Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal, which she claimed was racist, to Ronald Reagan’s policies, which she said “pitted” white working class people against minorities in order “to screw over all working-class Americans,” particularly African-Americans and Hispanics.

“So you think about this image of welfare queens and what he was really trying to talk about was … this like really resentful vision of essentially black women who were doing nothing, that were ‘sucks’ on our country,” she said.

“And it’s this whole tragedy of the commons type of thinking where it’s like because … this one specific group of people, that you are already kind of subconsciously primed to resent, you give them a different reason that’s not explicit racism but still rooted in a racist caricature,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “It gives people a logical reason, a ‘logical’ reason to say, ‘Oh yeah, no, toss out the whole social safety net.'”

Other topics Ocasio-Cortez discussed included the Green New Deal and capitalism, which she said could not be redeemed because it puts profit “above everything else.”

“The most important thing is the concentration of capital, and it means that we prioritize profit and the accumulation of money above all else, and we seek it at any human and environmental cost… But when we talk about ideas like democratic socialism, it means putting democracy and society first, instead of capital first; it doesn’t mean that the actual concept of capitalistic society should be abolished,” she said.

Remember when the Former (Thank God) President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama, spoke about “sharing the wealth” to a plumber named Joe during his 2008 Presidential Campaign?

101 years ago in Russia, a revolution was based on this very idea.

The unworkable theory that it is based on is known as Marxism. No government which has taken it as their political philosophy has ever flourished. The government grew and those working within it became rich while the “Proletariat” or average working citizens starved, giving all they had “for the good of the State”.

For quite a while now, I have been referring to those of the Far Left Democratic Party, such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez and her colleagues Ilham Omar and Rashida Tlaib, who have been doing every thing they can to disrupt and interfere with the success of President Donald J. Trump and the comeback of the Greatest Country on the face of the Earth, as the “New Bolsheviks”.

To be immodest, it looks like I nailed that one.

These new “useful idiots” are so “out there” that they have the Old Guard of the Democratic Party running scared and on the verge of allowing them to run the party and their political campaign strategies for not only this year’s Midterm Elections but possibly the 2020 Presidential Elections as well.

As America has witnessed, the Democratic Party has been moving further and further to the left side of the Political Spectrum for decades now.

So, it is really no surprise that they are on the precipice of becoming which they have been whining about for several years: fascists.

But they are not becoming just any kind of fascists. They are becoming Marxist Fascists, extolling the “benevolent goodness” of an all-powerful Central Government who will take care of everyone from cradle to grave, like AOC did this weekend.

And, those who refuse to give up their individual freedom as guaranteed to us by our Constitution will be shunned and ridiculed as “intolerant, ignorant hillbillies”.

For example, AOC erroneously attempting to label the late great Former President Ronald Wilson Reagan as being a “racist”.

Reagan, like President Donald J. Trump believed in our American Economic System and he caused it to grow after years of “malaise” under President Jimmy Carter.

You see, boys and girls, that’s the secret of American Exceptionalism, a concept that Obama always gave lip service to, but, clearly, never believed in.

For America to prosper, we must remain free. For America to remain free, we must be prosperous.

American Capitalism is the engine which drives a strong, vibrant economy. American Capitalism is the result of the courageous Entrepreneurial Spirit of American Citizens. The same “Can Do” attitude which led to Western Expansion and triumphs against those before-mentioned enemies, foreign and domestic.

President Ronald Reagan often referred to America as “The Shining City on the Hill” meaning that her people and the Sovereign Nation itself were an example to the rest of the world as to what a free people were capable of creating for themselves with God’s Providence.

Reagan knew that American Exceptionalism was an inspiration to the rest of the free world, not a bone of contention as America’s previous occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue claimed it to be.

And, just like the Gipper, President Trump knows that for America to be successful in a Global Economy, we must put America First, in order to negotiate with other countries from a position of strength.

This philosophy has enabled American business to regain the trust of Global Investors and is helping to ensure that our children and grandchildren will have more opportunities to forge their own bright economic futures.

Under all forms of Marxism, including “Democratic Socialism, the only ones who will become wealthy will be those who work for the government.

Why do you think that the Far Left Democrats are pushing so hard for “Democratic Socialism”?

Until He Comes,
