Much Ado About Nothing: “The Russians Did It! The Russians Did it!” No, They Didn’t. AMERICANS DID.

January 8, 2017

“The search for a scapegoat is the easiest of all hunting expeditions.” ― Dwight D. Eisenhower

CNSNews.com reported yesterday that

The official unclassified report that the Director of National Intelligence released yesterday giving the “analytic assessment” of U.S. intelligence agencies on “Russian activities and intentions in recent U.S. elections” states that the Department of Homeland Security assessed that Russia did not target or compromise systems used in counting votes in U.S. elections. 
This comports with a statement DNI James Clapper made Thursday in the Senate Armed Services Committee–and which CNSNews.com reported on Thursday.

“They did not change any vote tallies or anything of that sort,” Clapper said of the Russians during the committee hearing.

One of the written report’s “key judgments” states: “Russian intelligence obtained and maintained access to elements of multiple US state or local electoral boards. DHS assesses that the types of systems Russian actors targeted or compromised were not involved in vote tallying.”

The report released by the DNI uses bold type to emphasize the second sentence of this “key judgment:” 

The report goes on to repeat that while Russia “accessed elements of multiple state and local electoral boards,” the Department of Homeland Security did not see Russia “targeting or compromising” systems involved in vote counting.

The report said:

“Russian Cyber Intrusions Into State and Local Electoral Boards. Russian intelligence accessed elements of multiple state or local electoral boards. Since early 2014, Russian intelligence has researched US electoral processes and related technology and equipment.

“–DHS assesses that the types of systems we observed Russian actors targeting or compromising are not involved in vote tallying.”

The report provided an assessment of the extent of Russian “cyber espionage” of “U.S. political organizations” during the election—which the intelligence community believes included not only the Democratic National Committee, but also primary campaigns, think tanks and lobbying groups.

The report said:

“Cyber Espionage Against US Political Organizations. Russia’s intelligence services conducted cyber operations against targets associated with the 2016 US presidential election, including targets associated with both major US political parties.

“We assess Russian intelligence services collected against the US primary campaigns, think tanks, and lobbying groups they viewed as likely to shape future US policies. In July 2015, Russian intelligence gained access to Democratic National Committee (DNC) networks and maintained that access until at least June 2016.

Furthermore, a Fox News Poll, released December 17, 2016 states that

A majority of American voters think there was no real effect on the presidential race from Russian cyber-attacks, according to a new Fox News Poll.  

CIA officials reportedly believe Russian hackers meddled in the election to help Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton.  Yet 59 percent of voters believe the hacking didn’t make a difference.  

The poll finds 32 percent think Russia did help Trump in the election, while just one percent says the cyber-attacks aided Clinton.

Okay. All of this begs the question…

Why are Obama and all of his sycophantic followers, from the Washington Elite to 30-year old Internet Trolls, living in their Mom’s Basement, still feverishly pushing such a laughingly false excuse for the horrible loss they endured in the 2016 Presidential Election?

Is it because

a) They are all living in an alternate reality?

b) They all saw nude pictures of Rosie O’Donnell on Facebook and experienced a psychotic break as a result of the trauma?

c) They cannot believe that their political ideology and the candidate which they chose to espouse it, was so emphatically rejected by the Electoral Majority of the American People.

If you chose “c”, you answered correctly.

If you even thought about answer “b”, grab some mind bleach…STAT!

Since I began writing these daily missives in April of 2010, I have always been fascinated by the fact that Modern American Liberals unfailingly overestimate their own intelligence and the acceptance of the American People of their hubris and didactic condescension.

They themselves have never accepted the fact that Liberalism is the minority political ideology in the United States of America and no amount of push polls, manufactured statistics, photo ops, or bald-faced political lies and chicanery can change that.

On November 8th, 2016, average Americans, who had become fed up, after 8 years of poor leadership, non-existent stewardship, empty promises, a dwindling American Work Force, and a Federal Government who represented themselves and not the will and wishes of average Americans, stood up on their hind legs and did something about it.

To say that blaming Clinton’s defeat on the Russians strains credulity, is an understatement.

Nobody here in “Flyover Country” believes that garbage…especially since it comes from the same liars who told us that the Benghazi Massacre was caused by a video.

WE, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR HILLARY CLINTON LOSING THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION.

YOU LOST, LIBERALS. GET OVER IT AND MOVE ON.

FOR OUR COUNTRY’S SAKE.

Obama Says That He Could Have Beaten Trump. Trump Says “No Way”. Biden Calls His Own Party “Elitists”.

December 27, 2016

obama-selfieAs he has since he moved in, the current occupant of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue has once again grossly overestimated his own gravitas and popularity.

Foxnews.com reports that

President Obama suggested in an exit interview with his former top adviser that, had he been able to run, he could have won a third term in the White House.

Describing his confidence in an America that is “tolerant” and “full of energy,” Obama said: “I am confident in this vision because I’m confident that … if I had run again and articulated it, I think I could’ve mobilized a majority of the American people to rally behind it.”

President-elect Donald Trump fired back Monday in a tweet: “He should say that but I say NO WAY!” He cited the rise of the Islamic State terror group and trouble with Obama administration agenda items including ObamaCare.

The outgoing president made the comments as part of an extensive interview with David Axelrod, for his podcast produced by CNN and the University of Chicago. Axelrod was one of Obama’s top advisers during the 2008 campaign and his first term in the White House.

“I know that in conversations that I’ve had with people around the country, even some people who disagreed with me, they would say the vision, the direction that you point towards is the right one,” Obama told Axelrod, defending his assertion.

Obama was term-limited and could not run, clearing the way for his former primary rival – and secretary of state – Hillary Clinton to be the party’s standard-bearer in 2016. She nevertheless ran in large part on Obama’s agenda, vowing to preserve some of his signature policies as Donald Trump and his Republican allies campaigned against them.

As other top Democrats have done in the wake of President-elect Trump’s victory, Obama did acknowledge that Democrats and progressives face political challenges, especially in rural areas.  

“If we can’t find some way to break through what is a complicated history in the South and start winning races there and winning back Southern white voters without betraying our commitment to civil rights and diversity — if we can do those things, then we can win elections,” he said.

Obama also warned about an “era where we are looking for simple solutions … that we end up starting to shut ourselves off from different points of view, shutting down debate, becoming more dogmatic, becoming more brittle. And I don’t see that being a successful strategy for us winning over the country.”

He reminded listeners that his party won the popular vote on Election Day, but said: “We don’t have very good population distribution from a democratic perspective.”

Vice President Biden offered a somewhat tougher critique of his party in a similar exit interview with the Los Angeles Times.

He said his party failed to connect with working-class, largely white voters, and warned that “a bit of elitism” has “crept in” to party thinking.

He recalled watching a Trump rally in Pennsylvania near where he grew up.  “They’re all the people I grew up with,” he said. “They’re their kids. And they’re not racist. They’re not sexist. But we didn’t talk to them.”

Now, let me get this straight…

Barack Hussein Obama doesn’t understand why the Democrats lost to Trump.

Hillary Clinton does not understand why she lost to Trump.

“Crazy Uncle” Joe Biden understands why the Democrats lost to Trump.

Out of the mouths of children and idiots….

Remember how refreshing Donald J. Trump’s speech was when he accepted the nomination as the Presidential Candidate of the Republican Party?

What a contrast to what we had heard for 7 and one-half long years from the present occupier of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C.

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?

But, I digress…

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

And, therein lies the secret of Donald J. Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton on November 8th.

It was a direct “repudiation” of Obama and his Presidency.

What Trump did, with his refusal earlier in the 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 was 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.

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, named Ronald Wilson Reagan.

While I am not comparing the two, I am noting that this strategy has proved and is proving effective, in the case of both Presidential Candidates.

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

Why has Donald J. Trump become so popular with average Americans?

The reason is very simple: WE’RE ANGRY.

Our palpable anger is one which has 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, has been exacerbated by the Republican Elite, who, in their desire to “reach across the aisle” and “go along to get along”, have distanced themselves from those who elected them to Congress in the first place.

Meanwhile, average Americans, like you and me, remain 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, are the over-94 million Americans, who are no longer, largely through no fault of their own, participating in our Workforce.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

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, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, which propelled Donald J. Trump to the Presidency…and those who prefer the Washingtonian Status Quo continue to deny it.

In summation, the American people are 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.

Plus, we did not want to live 4 more of years under ANOTHER MarX/Alinsk-ite, in the person of Hillary Clinton.

Donald Trump, is a breath of free air and, quite frankly an anomaly. He’s not a professional politician. He is a businessman who wants to become a public servant.

Does Donald J. Trump need to “tone it down”, in terms of speaking “truth to power”?

Judging from what he has accomplished already before even taking office: NO.

Only if he wants to sound like a Professional Politician.

Judging from the reality of Donald  J. Trump’s victory on November 8th, average Middle Class Americans have had our fill of them.

And, Biden gets it.

Well, even a blind squirrel finds an acorn every now and then.

Until He Comes,

Stocks are Soaring: Why Americans are so Optimistic (A KJ Analysis)

December 10, 2016

up-staged-nrd-600-a

Money won’t create success, the freedom to make it will. – Nelson Mandela

CNBC.com reports that

The election of Donald Trump has brought with it a surge in optimism in the United States over the economy and stocks not seen in years. The CNBC All-America Economic Survey for the fourth quarter found that the percentage of Americans who believe the economy will get better in the next year jumped an unprecedented 17 points to 42 percent, compared with before the election. It’s the highest level since President Barack Obama was first elected in 2008.

The surge was powered by Republicans and independents reversing their outlooks. Republicans swung from deeply pessimistic, with just 15 percent saying the economy would improve in the next year, to strongly optimistic, with 74 percent believing in an economic upswing. Optimism among independents doubled but it fell by more than half for Democrats. Just 16 percent think the economy will improve.

“We’re looking at America moving into a more positive era with regard to economic expectations,” said Micah Roberts, vice president at Public Opinion Strategies, which serves as the Republican pollster for the CNBC survey. “No doubt the election of Donald Trump has ushered that in. “The poll of 800 adults around the country was conducted Dec. 2 to 5, and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points. Hart Research Associates served as the Democratic pollsters.

A majority of Americans tell CNBC they are “comfortable and prepared to support” a Trump presidency. The 56 percent of respondents who now back the president-elect represent a sharp change from the 43 percent who were asked the question just before the election in November by NBC News and The Wall Street Journal. The percentage is driven by 91 percent of Republicans supporting Trump but also 54 percent of independents and even 23 percent of Democrats.The survey showed a rise in optimism when it comes to several key economic gauges. Americans now look for higher wage gains next year and bigger increases in their housing prices.

The post-election surge in major stock market indexes also has buoyed feelings about equities, with 40 percent saying now is a good time to invest, up 10 points from before the election. Again, Democrats became somewhat more negative on stocks while Republicans grew significantly more optimistic.

Those differences are also clear in the choice for what Americans believe is the best investment right now. While real estate remains the top choice for the third straight year, stocks gained the most ground at the expense of gold, real estate and Treasurys. Driving the change: the shine is off gold for Republicans and they, along with independents, have grown more favorable toward equities.

Nearly every demographic, except the poor and Democrats, now has a net positive view about investing in stocks.

But the survey shows the president-elect has his work cut out for him. Asked which one or two items Trump should focus on first, a 40 percent plurality answered, “Keeping U.S. jobs from going overseas.” All other priorities were far back and it was the top choice for all parties, but especially the GOP.

“Among Republicans, there’s keeping jobs from going overseas and then there’s everything else — it’s really all about jobs and keeping jobs in the U.S.,” said Democratic pollster Jay Campbell with Hart.

The second-most popular priority was increasing the minimum wage, which has strong support from Democrats and independents. The conundrum for the incoming president is that keeping jobs from moving overseas could, in some cases, mean lower wages for Americans. Coming in third among priorities was reducing the deficit, a strong choice among Republicans and independents, followed by funding infrastructure, boosted by Democrats and independents. Again, these two priorities are potentially in conflict since infrastructure spending would boost the deficit.

A potential warning to the president-elect comes from two priorities he has discussed at length, business tax cuts and deregulation. Both come in far down the list among priorities for the public, with modest independent support and little backing from Democrats.

Why are the majority of Americans so optimistic?

Perhaps it’s because, after 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?

But, I digress…

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

And, therein lies the secret of Donald J. Trump’s success.

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.

“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 is doing by way of his “Thank You” Tour and 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, named 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.

A quote attributed to Helen Keller states that

Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.

It that is the case, then Americans are going to truly enjoy the next four years.

As the Dem’s National Temper Tantrum Continues, Trump Remains President-elect

December 6, 2016

1478683387-41f06699e2ad4f92bf707bca219ab0db-1038x576

 Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall. – Proverbs 16:18 (ESV)

Recently, Breitbart.com reported that

Donald Trump won an overwhelming 7.5 million popular vote victory in 3,084 of the country’s 3,141 counties or county equivalents in America’s heartland.
Fifty-five point seven million out of the 109.3 million Americans who cast their ballots in those counties voted for Trump, while only 48.1 million voted for Hillary Clinton, according to the latest county by county election results reported at Politico. The remaining 5.4 million voted for other candidates.

Trump’s 7.5 million popular vote landslide in America’s heartland, a resounding 7 point victory in those 3,084 counties over Clinton, 51 percent to 44 percent, gave him a 306 to 232 Electoral College landslide. (On Monday night, the director of elections in the office of Michigan’s Secretary of State said that Trump had won the state’s 16 electoral college votes by a narrow margin of 13,107 votes.)

Hillary Clinton, in contrast, had an 8.2 million vote margin in a narrow band of 52 coastal counties and five “county equivalent” cities stretching from San Diego to Seattle on the West Coast and Northern Virginia to Boston on the East Coast. That narrow band included two major cities–Washington, D.C and Baltimore, Maryland–included in the five “county equivalent” cities, and three major cities–Philadelphia, New York, and Boston–which are included in the 52 counties.

Clinton received 70 percent of the 18.4 million votes cast in these 52 elite coastal counties. Donald Trump, in contrast, received only 25 percent of the vote in these counties. The remaining 5 percent went to other candidates.

In elite coastal county after elite coastal county, especially those in Washington, D.C. and its Virginia and Maryland suburbs where so many federal government workers and federal contractors live, Clinton won by margins ranging from four to one to two to one.

Votes cast in the 52 elite coastal counties where Clinton dominated accounted for only 14.4 percent of the estimated 127.7 million total votes cast in the country.

In contrast, the 3,084 counties in America’s heartland, where Trump dominated with a healthy 7 point margin, accounted for 85.6 percent of all votes cast.

Clinton’s 671,066 popular vote margin across the entire country, 61,047,027 votes to Donald Trump’s 60,375,961 votes (according to Politico’s election results website as of Tuesday morning) arose from this huge advantage wracked up in these elite coastal counties.

Clinton received 47.7 percent of theestimated 127.7 million votes cast nationwide, while Trump received 47.2 percent of those votes. Five percent went to other candidates.

Trump campaigned very little in the 23 elite coastal counties in the West Coast states of California, Oregon, and Washington, and only vigorously campaigned in five Northern Virginia counties and Philadelphia on the East Coast.

It is worth noting that virtually all members of the mainstream media reside within this narrow band of elite coastal counties.

Clinton won the 161 electoral college votes in nine of these ten states, as well in the District of Columbia. Among these ten states, Trump won only Pennsylvania and its 20 electoral college votes.

But these nine states experienced the same kind of bimodal divide seen in the rest of the country.

In eight of these nine states (all but Massachusetts) Trump was tied or slightly ahead of Clinton in the popular vote in those counties outside the coastal elite.

Here is the full list of these 52 elite coastal counties:

(California: Alameda, Contra Costa, Humboldt, Los Angeles, Marin, Mendocino, Monterey, Napa, Sacramento, San Diego, San Francisco, San Luis Obispo, San Mateo, Santa Barbara, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano, Sonoma, and Ventura; Oregon: Multnomah and Washington; Washington: King and Snohomish; Virginia: Arlington, Fairfax, Loudoun, and Prince William (and the cities of Alexandria, Fairfax, and Falls Church); Washington, D.C.; Maryland: Baltimore, Charles, Howard, Montgomery, and Prince George’s (and the city of Baltimore); Pennsylvania: Delaware and Philadelphia; New Jersey: Essex, Hudson, Mercer, Middlesex, Passaic, and Union; New York: Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Westchester; Connecticut: Fairfield, Hartford, and New Haven; andMassachusetts: Essex, Middlesex, Norfolk, and Suffolk.)

All of the above information is absolutely true, and yet, those on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, including college students, celebrities, and grown people who should know better, continue to throw the longest temper tantrum over the results of one of tbe biggest upsets in an American Presidential Election that the world has ever seen.

These self-proclaimed activists, both those who have been paid through George Soros and the many tentacles of his political organizations, and those who are just doing it because they did not get their way, including Jill Stein and Hillary Clinton, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant among us.

In fact, these sore losers remind me of the hyterically sobbing children that you hear in every Walmart across the country.

It’s not that those children are crying because they are physically hurt. Just like the Democrats, they’re crying because they did not get their way.

This epic meltdown by the Democrats that the whole world is witnessing is a direct result of an underestimation by the same Democrats of the American People’s desire to rid ourselves of those in the Halls of Power who told us repeatedly that they knew what was best for us and “who we were” while their actual mission was to turn America into a Third-World Barrio in their quest to make us a Socialist Paradise.

All during the Presidential Campaign, the Democrats, through their minions in the Main Stream Media, assured us that it was a foregone conclusion that Hillary Clinton would be our 45th president.

There is a reason for that.

The Democratic Elite have always believed that our country revolves around the big metropolitan areas in the Northeast and in California. They have always looked down their noses at what they derisively call “Flyover Country”, the same area that many of us call the Heartland of America or simply “home”.

This meltdown which has lasted just short of a month is a reaction caused by their own unbridled and unsupported arrogance.

The Modern American Liberals who are running the Democratic Party never saw Trump’s victory coming.

At this point, all their national temper tantrum is doing, is making them look like fools.

Perhaps, if they had not waged war against Christianity in public places in America over the last 8 years, they could have picked up a Bible placed by the Gideons in their hotel rooms and read the story of David and Goliath.

That was an “upset win”, also.

MSM Not Appreciating Being Punked by Trump

November 26, 2016

not-mine-600-li

The Main Stream Media needs a bottle and a nap.

TheHill.com reports that

President-elect Donald Trump and the news media are settling into an uneasy relationship.

Distrust and ill feelings are held on both sides, and no one is predicting the acrimony that characterized the final months of the presidential campaign will disappear.

At the same time, Trump in his Tuesday meeting with reporters and editors at The New York Times offered an olive branch, acknowledging that he’s a longtime reader and pledging a willingness to develop a professional working relationship.

“I would like to turn it around,” Trump said. “I think it would make the job I am doing much easier.”

Trump’s words may do little to assuage the press’s fears.

White House reporters are worried about access to Trump, who didn’t allow reporters on his campaign plane and ditched media staking out Trump Tower last week to have dinner with family at New York’s 21 Club.

The president-elect’s frequent threats to the press have added to a sense that the rules for covering this White House might be different.

“Every incoming president has basic, generally agreed upon rules of the road,” said Joe Lockhart, who served as White House press secretary for President Bill Clinton.

“The Trump team has decided they’ll blow up and the road and build a new one. Where it goes from here will be a test of how far the new president and his team want to push things, and the strength and will of the press to push back.”

Trump’s transition team says it is committed to having a press pool, which allows for a small group of reporters to remain stationed near the president to document his movements. The pool was on hand for the assassination of John F. Kennedy and the attempted assassination of Ronald Reagan, and when George W. Bush was on the move on 9/11.

“In order to cover the president-elect, we need to have a pool of reporters present and there when the entire press corps can’t be there,” White House Correspondents’ Association president Jeff Mason said this week on MSNBC. “That’s the purpose of the White House pool, and that’s certainly something the correspondent’s association has pressed for.”

But there are no laws requiring that an administration maintain a press pool or even that news outlets have access to administration officials, the briefing room or White House grounds.

During his primary campaign, Trump blackballed some news outlets from covering his rallies, which were open to the public, because he was unhappy with their coverage of him.

He also singled-out individual reporters for ridicule and would whip up a frenzy against the media at his rallies, where Trump supporters would jeer at the press pen.

Trump has not held a formal press conference — where reporters from a range of media outlets can ask him with questions — since July.

But Trump has little incentive to go through traditional media channels, some experts say.

Facebook and Twitter combine to give him one of the most powerful social media presences in the world.

He has former Breitbart executive Stephen Bannon at his side in the White House, giving him a powerful ally in the massively influential world of right-wing news.

And when Trump releases a straight-to-camera video to announce his 100-day agenda — as he did this week, in lieu of a press conference — it elicits the same volume of coverage as a press conference would.

Trump was lavished with billions of dollars worth of free airtime and exposure during the campaign, irrespective of how he chose to engage.

Press advocates are worried that the president-elect appears to be holding all the cards.

“Over the last 20 to 30 years, each White House has thrown up more obstacles and become more obsessed with controlling their own message,” said Craig Aaron, president of the advocacy group Free Press. “But this is a new apex, and it’s really dangerous. There used to be basic norms. You have to assume anything is possible now.”

Of course, the media will get little sympathy from the public, with a favorable rating sitting at an all-time low in the latest Gallup survey. Only 32 percent of Americans say they have a great deal or fair amount of trust in the press.

And Trump’s allies believe all of their moves to beat back at what they view as a hopelessly biased liberal media are justified.

They’re fuming over what they see as a press corps that has dropped any pretense of objectivity in covering Trump, and they’re sick of what they view as breathless coverage of frivolous stories, like the “Hamilton” actor who chided Vice President-elect Mike Pence.

Trump allies are apoplectic over the media’s obsession with the alt-right and the neo-Nazis that gathered in Washington, D.C., over the weekend to pledge fealty to Trump, arguing that Trump has condemned racism repeatedly and has no ties to either group.

By several accounts, there were as many reporters and protesters at the event as there were white nationalists, raising questions about why the event has attracted so much attention.

In an interview on Tuesday, Republican National Committee strategist Sean Spicer exploded at anchor Wolf Blitzer for badgering him on the issue.

“You’ve asked me eight times the same question,” Spicer shouted.

“It’s the news media over and over again,” Spicer said. “But I don’t know how many times he has to answer that question and you figuring out the way and fashion he should do it next. If he gives a speech, should he then write it in the sky in an airplane? At what point is it enough?”

Unfortunately, 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, 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.

In fact, they 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?

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 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.

In fact, 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.

They are behaving like spoiled little brats who need a timeout.

And, judging from the TV Ratings of their newscasts, Americans are giving them one.

Clinton Blames FBI’s Comey for Her Loss…and a Video Caused the Benghazi Massacre

November 13, 2016

bberry-grandma-nrd

Hillary Clinton is not that fascinating a person. According to those who have spent time with her, she’s harsh and demanding. According to those who haven’t – like her husband – she’s a delight. – Ben Shapiro

Foxnews.com reports that

Hillary Clinton has offered a couple of private but candid explanations about why she lost her White House bid, telling high-dollar fundraisers Saturday that FBI announcements about a second probe into her emails from her time as secretary of state were too damaging.

Clinton said, “Our analysis is that Comey’s letter raised doubts that were groundless and baseless…” and “stopped our momentum,” a DNC fundraising source who was on the call told Fox News.

Clinton made the remark on a roughly 30-minute conference call with Democrats who raised more than $100,000, according to Politico.

The former State Department leader lost in a surprising defeat to Republican nominee Donald Trump — a first-time candidate who essentially trailed in almost every major poll for the entire campaign.

FBI Director James Comey told Congress in an Oct. 30 letter that the agency was looking at emails found in an unrelated case that could be related to a closed FBI case specifically about the Clinton emails.

Clinton suggested her campaign’s internal poll numbers plunged after the letter but nevertheless rebounded, a person on the Saturday call told Politico.

However, she said the second Comey letter, three days before Election Day, saying that she had essentially been cleared in the unrelated case, awakened Trump voters.    

The FBI investigated Clinton using a private email server system while secretary of state. Comey said some of the emails included classified information and that she was “extremely careless” in her action. But he concluded the case in July without recommending criminal charges.

Clinton on Thursday told her campaign staff that she had “stepped in it” by saying half of Trump’s supporters were “deplorables,” according to The New York Times.

She and her campaign essentially defended the remark by saying she regretted saying “half” of the supporters were “racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamophobic” people.

I’m sure.

FBI Director Comey’s second investigation of Clinton’s e-mails is not the reason that she will not occupy the Oval Office.

Hillary Clinton, as shown by her “sound bites’, before, during, and after last Tuesday’s history-making Presidential Election, views herself as smarter than average Americans.

She comes off in public as being snotty, cold, and insincere…because she is

This is nothing new.

In the Spring of 1974, Hillary became a member of the Presidential Impeachment Inquiry Staff, advising the Judiciary Committee of the House of Representatives during the Watergate Scandal. Her boss back then, Jerry Zeifman, now-retired General Counsel and Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee, tells a very revealing story concerning her work there.According to Zeifman, a lifelong Democrat, Hillary got a job working on the investigation at the behest of her former Yale Law Professor, Burke Marshall, also Sen. Ted Kennedy’s chief counsel in the Chappaquiddick affair.When the Watergate Investigation was over, Zeifman fired Hillary from the committee staff and refused to give her a letter of recommendation. That made the Future First Lady and Secretary of State one of only three people who earned that badge of dishonor in Zeifman’s 17-year career.Why?

According to Zeifman,

Because she was a liar. She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.

Witness her behavior during the entire investigation regarding the events of that horrific night of September 11, 2012, on the grounds of the U.S. Embassy Compound in Benghazi, Libya.

We learned on October 26, 2012, that there were two drones circling overhead, as four brave Americans were being slaughtered. Obama and his Administration knew exactly what was happening, yet, for the sake of political expediency, chose to do nothing about it.

What Hillary’s appearance before the Benghazi Hearings showed, was a pathological predilection for dishonesty, insincerity, and inappropriateness, not only on the part of Former Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton,  but the whole Obama Administration, as well, from the top on down.

They all knew that the cause of the attacks was not some stupid Youtube Video, but a full-blown Muslim Terrorist Attack.

However, for the sake of Political Expediency…and the re-election of President Barack Hussein Obama and the legacy of his rapidly failing Foreign Policy, known as Smart Power!, they had to quickly come up with an excuse for their liability in the deaths of those four brave Americans.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, with her Oscar-worthy Performance in front of the House Committee, which included circuitous answers to Yes or No Questions and inappropriate smirks, accompanied by cackling laughter, echoes across the years, proved completely true and accurate as to what I and my fellow Conservative Bloggers were saying about her all along:

Hillary is a sociopath, who envisioned herself to be smarter than everybody else, above the law, and White House-bound, because she believed that she was going to be handed the Presidency, simply because “it’s her turn”.

Oopsie.

Americans disagreed.

The name Hillary Rodham Clinton will become synonymous with the untrustworthy nature of professional politicians.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or this recent revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, this is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and Emailgate, Hillary Clinton proved to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cared about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

In conclusion, it was not just one incident which cost Hillary Clinton the Presidency .

It was A LIFETIME OF LIES.

Average Americans, from the Rust Belt to the Bible Belt, were familiar with Mrs. Clinton.

They knew who she was and what she was.

They knew that she would walk 20 miles across the scorching desert sand to tell a lie rather than step across on of Obama’s infamous Red Lines and tell the truth.

Hillary has no one to blame but herself for Tuesday Night’s Loss.

But, of course, she never will.

For, after all, accepting responsibility for one’s words and actions is as repulsive to a Modern American Liberal as a Crucifix is to a Vampire.

So, perhaps Hillary will come up with more excuses for Tuesday Night’s trouncing, but, to quote the Former First Lady herself,

What difference at this point does it make?

It’s Morning in America…AGAIN!!! Hey, Political Elite…Can You Hear us NOW?

November 9, 2016

th (80).jpgTraditionally, working-class Americans, Southerners, Catholics, and urban dwellers had strong ties to the Democratic Party. The Republicans relied heavily on support from the rural Midwest, Protestant leaders, and wealthier voters. Ronald Reagan built a new coalition for the Republican Party in his quest for the Presidency in 1980.

Working Americans were shocked to see unemployment rates nearing double digits. Inflation was pushing the middle class into tax brackets previously reserved for the affluent classes. Reagan promised to reduce their level of misery with sound fiscal policy. Southerners disgruntled by affirmative action and busing found friendly ears in the Reagan campaign. The endorsement of Reagan by the Protestant establishment did not deter devout Catholics from voting Republican, since Reagan promised to oppose abortion rights and promote family values.

Crime-plagued city denizens looked to Reagan for comfort as he portrayed himself as the law and order candidate. Americans across demographic lines were warmed by his promises for a stronger America domestically and overseas. Very quickly, these “Reagan Democrats” crumbled the old alignment. Jimmy Carter, his opponent in the 1980 election, never stood a chance. ( “Morning in America”, The Reagan Years, ushistory.com)

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, has led us to a seminal moment in American Politics.

The term  “Citizen Statesman”, such as our Founding Fathers envisioned, became personified in the Republican Candidate for the Presidency of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

 

Ronald 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 and a Presidential Candidate has to build a coalition, in order to win the Presidency.

That is exactly what Donald J. Trump did.

Reuters reports that

Fed up with Washington and feeling left behind, supporters of Republican Donald Trump upended the U.S. presidential race, electing a political newcomer they say offers the country a shot at dramatic change.

Once dismissed by Trump’s Democratic rival Hillary Clinton as “deplorables,” supporters interviewed on Tuesday shrugged off his late-night tweeted insults, allegations against him of sexual misconduct and dire warnings from many in the Republican establishment that the businessman-turned-reality-television-star would throw U.S. economic and foreign policy into disarray.

The economy, terrorism and healthcare ranked as the top three concerns facing Americans casting ballots in Tuesday’s election, according to an early reading from the Reuters/Ipsos Election Day poll of about 35,000 people.

“The freedom-loving Americans pushed back against the elites and the globalists. They might win in the long run, but we’re not dead yet,” said Andrew Dye, 48, of Dexter, Michigan.

“I think this big country is getting a little too far left a little too quickly and some people finally woke up and said enough,” said Dye, a partner in a small management consulting firm.

Cuban-American Sarah Gird, 67, described herself as an independent who had felt let down after twice voting for Democratic President Barack Obama.

“I’m not conservative at all,” she said. But Obama “didn’t produce anything.” In contrast, she said she trusted Trump would fix the economy.

“I think he’s sincere, he’s truthful, he means what he says,” said Gird, adding she thought Trump would address poverty and jobs in African-American neighborhoods.

For many, the vote was a rejection of Clinton, whose use of a private email server during her time in government came to symbolize what is wrong with Washington.

“All the corruption. I’m tired of business as usual, being sold out all these years,” said Kevin Barrett, 57, in Nashville.

Tom Kipp, 53, an architect also of Nashville, said he voted for Trump because “we need somebody in there not beholden to anyone.”

“Our checks and balances system is beyond being compromised. I don’t say he’s my prime candidate, but he’s my best option,” Kipp said.

Others found Trump’s promise to build a wall on the southern border with Mexico appealing.

“Last-minute decision: I changed my mind to Trump,” said Lisa Ciafone, 48, of Madeira Beach, Florida, citing her concerns about illegal immigration and the rising costs of health insurance. “It made me lean towards Trump.”

Vicki DeLira, 54, a dental hygienist from Schererville, Indiana, grew up a Democrat but voted for Trump because it was time for change even if it means “a little bit of chaos.”

“It will be a little different atmosphere for a non-politician to be in the White House,” DeLira said. “But I think there’s enough politicians around him to help round them out.”

Todd Recknagel, managing partner of private equity firm Three20 Capital Group, said the caricature of Trump as a “monster” was overdone.

“He is an effective business man at the end of the day. So things are never quite as good as they appear and things are never quite as bad as they appear in life and I think he can make a decent president,” said Recknagel, 52, from Panama City Beach, Florida.

As Trump became the projected winner in state after state, fans from Arkansas, Texas and Virginia sitting on velvet sofas in the lobby of his new Washington luxury hotel just down the street from the White House celebrated as waiters popped champagne.

Preston Parry, 20, had bet all along that Trump would defy the pollsters who predicted a Clinton victory.

“These were shadow voters, people who had never, ever voted before that the polls didn’t pick up. Unlikely voters. Like him or hate him – look, he did something right.”

The Clintons, their Campaign Staff, Democrat Elites, and their minions in the Main Stream Media will spend months attempting to understand how a “Basketful of Deplorables cost Hillary Rodham Clinton “her turn”.

I predicted a long time ago that the hubris of America’s Political Elite would be their downfall.

They divorced themselves from average Americans and our daily struggles a long time ago.

They could not make it through the difficulties that we faced, just to survive.

Hey, “”Former Ruling Elite”…

Try barely making enough money to keep the wolves from your door.

Try being an Average American Mom worried to send your daughter into a Target Restroom for fear that there is a molester behind the door, allowed there by Barack Hussein Obama in the name of “Political Correctness”.

Try being told that you’re not raising your child or grandchild appropriately and that the Federal Government , including a Low Class First Lady knows how to feed, clothe, and RAISE them better than you do.

Try being a Veteran receiving lackadaisical care at a VA Hospital.

Try surviving as one of almost 95,000,000 Americans, in many case through no fault of your own, except your age, forced out of our nation’s workforce.

Imagine being vilified as a “Bitter Clinger” for holding as sacred the American Faith and Traditions passed down in your family from one generation to the next.

Seriously, “Smartest People in the Room”, you want to know why the overwhelming Majority of average Americans think that you , like the Democratic Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, whom you champion, STINK ON ICE?

It is because you have forsworn your role as public servants and objective journalists and have transformed that role, through your own hubris, into that of being one of a Crusading Liberal Activist.

And, as activists, you are a part of the 24% of , who identify themselves as “Liberals”, referred to as the “Hive-mind”, because most of the time, they present themselves in public and on the internet, including Facebook Political Pages, as being in lockstep with one another, regurgitating “the Party Line”, about each and every Hot Button Political Issue, resembling the brainwashed Proletariat of the old Soviet Union.

You traded integrity for a Throne in the Halls of your very own Mount Olympus, known as Capitol Hill and for a seat in the back of Hillary’s Campaign Plane.

As  was affirmed to me daily, during my surfing of the web during the Presidential Campaign, including Facebook Political Pages and websites, Modern American Liberals constantly live in a state of denial.

You guys and gals respond ed as if we told you that you shot Ol’ Yeller, when we informed you that Liberalism is still the minority political belief in America, even (and especially) after the 7 1/2 year reign of King Barack The First.

By the way, this salient fact explains why CNN and MSNBC constantly trail Fox News in the television ratings polls.

But, I digress…

It also explains your failed strategy which included the massive propping up through the use of blatant propaganda of the Presidential Campaign of Hillary Clinton.

Just like the cockamamie idea to allow biological men in women’s public restrooms, the idea of allowing a morally and ethically challenged congenital liar with obvious serious health issues, who is as far removed philosophically from the overwhelming majority of Americans, that she might as well be the President of China, XI Jinping’s Handmaiden, set average Americas out here in America’s Heartland up on our hind legs and made us want to hurl.

Which, by the way, was quite evident when you compare actual images of the size of Donald J. Trump’s overflowing Campaign , numbering in the thousands, compared to the under-attended ones of Hillary Clinton, which are lucky to draw one hundred.

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.

In order to ensure that no leader of this new nation would go mad with power, and become a tyrannical despot, our Founders set up a System of Checks and Balances, overseen by Three Branches of Government: the Legislative, the Executive, and the Judicial, with each branch having a distinct and LIMITED  role.

This morning, in which we as a nation, find ourselves was a Citizen Statesman, not a Professional Politician, as our President-Elect, is one which our Founding Fathers sought valiantly to ensure.

Thanks to an Imperious Presidency, we are presently suffering under a “Tyranny of the Minority”.

This minority is not based on color, rather, it is one based on political ideology and self-interest.

As the past several years have shown, this minority, buoyed by money from this “sponsors”, including the Halls of Power in Washington, DC, will shut down anyone who threatens “what they’ve got” by ANY MEANS NECESSARY, including political devices and beliefs, which we, as a country, have gone to war against in the past.

Representatives of the Main Stream Media, the “visceral hatred” that you see being addressed by average Americans toward you, which manifested itself in a victory by Donald J. Trump last night, is YOUR OWN DAMN FAULT.

Just like the bully who was twice my size in Seventh Grade, who used to torment me on a daily basis, until I finally had enough and smacked him right between the eyes with my size 2s drumsticks, the thick ones used for playing “the Toms”, the “whuppin'”that you received from average Working Class Americans at the polls yesterday, is something that you have had coming for a long time now.

Suck it up, Pajamaboys.

THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!!!

IT’S MORNING IN AMERICA…AGAIN!!!

We Have One Day in Which to Decide America’s Future: Who Do You Trust With It?

November 7, 2016

can-not-lie-nrd-600a

Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and we’re tired of hearing promises that we know they’ll never keep. – Ray Davies

Tomorrow, Americans will choose the person who will lead our country for the next four years. That journey will either be one which will restore the luster of “The Shining City on a Hill” or complete its transformation into the Socialist Utopia of a Third World Barrio.

That being said, the question that I have for you today, boys and girls, is

Who do you trust?

KAKE, an ABC Affiliate relates the following report from CNN…

STERLING HEIGHTS, Michigan (CNN) — Donald Trump urged voters Sunday to “deliver justice at the ballot box” on Election Day, hours after the FBI announced that its review of newly discovered emails did not change its earlier conclusion to not recommend charges against Hillary Clinton.

Trump, speaking at a rally here, did not directly refer to FBI Director James Comey’s announcement. But his remarks amounted to his first public response to the decision, and the Republican nominee argued that Clinton is “guilty” of federal crimes and said a “rigged” system was protecting Clinton.

“Hillary Clinton is guilty. She knows it, the FBI knows it, the people know it, and now it’s up to the American people to deliver justice at the ballot box on November 8,” Trump said. “Unbelievable. Unbelievable how she gets away with it.”

Trump also cast doubt on Comey’s conclusions, just over a week after the Republican nominee praised the FBI director for announcing the review of the emails, which were discovered as part of the bureau’s investigation into Anthony Weiner’s sexting.

“Right now, she is being protected by a rigged system. It’s a totally rigged system. You can’t review 650,000 emails in eight days. You can’t do it folks,” Trump said, mischaracterizing the number of emails the FBI was reviewing for connections into the private server Clinton used as secretary of state.

The FBI took custody of electronic devices containing 650,000 emails in its investigation into Weiner, the estranged husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin, but identified a smaller subset of those emails as linked to Clinton.

The FBI announced Sunday that its review of those emails had not changed the conclusions it reached over the summer, when Comey recommended no charges be filed after a year-long investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server, even though he called her handling of classified information “extremely careless.”

Still, even as the FBI cleared Clinton for the second time, Trump argued that “the investigations into her crimes will go on for a long time.”

“The rank-and-file special agents at the FBI won’t let her get away with her terrible crimes,” Trump said.

Trump served up his first response to the FBI’s announcement on Sunday before a packed and rowdy crowd of supporters at an amphitheater in this Detroit suburb, where supporters cheered loudly and belted a raucous cry of “Lock her up! Lock her up!” as Trump addressed his rival’s email controversy.

Trump will return to Michigan — which hasn’t voted for a Republican presidential nominee since 1988 — once more before voters head to the polls on Tuesday, holding his final campaign rally in the state on Monday night.

Trump is trailing in the polls here, but advisers to the billionaire’s campaign have argued that they see an opening to make inroads.

Former President Bill Clinton stumped in the state on Sunday as Democrats look to protect the state from falling in the Republican column, and the Democratic nominee herself will also hold a rally in Michigan on Monday.

What Americans have witnessed during the FBI’s lackadaisical investigation of Hillary Clinton’s Scandal, known as E-mailgate, is an unequal application of the rule of law as applies to Professional Politicians in general and, in this case, specifically, a former member of the Obama Administration.

Recently, the CBS Morning News presented a poll in which 60% of Americans believed that Clinton lied about her mishandling of emails containing top secret information which could have potentially put the lives of our military and covert operatives at risk.

Now, that was a CBS poll, which of course is weighted heavily in favor of Liberals, so you can imagine how folks like you and me out here in Flyover Country feel about the situation.

Our government was never meant to be a feudal system. America remains a Constitutional Republic.

American  Politicians were never meant to be Lords, who would remain in power in perpetuity. Our Founding Fathers envisioned Citizen Statesman, who after serving their country and their communities for a short period of time, would return to their homes, to their families, and to their trades.

What has happened during the investigation of this breach of our National Security is a prime example of why our Founders set up the System of Checks and Balances that they did when they were constructing our system of government.

Obama, the Department of Justice, and the Clintons circumvented that system with a series of maneuvers carried out between the White House, the Campaign Staff, and a private jet idling on a Tarmac at an airport.

Simply put, Hillary Rodham Clinton cannot be trusted with the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America.

On Jan. 8, 1996, in a still-relevant commentary titled“Blizzard of Lies,” New York Times columnist William Safire described Hillary Clinton as “a congenital liar.”

Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady — a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation — is a congenital liar. Drip by drip, like Whitewater torture, the case is being made that she is compelled to mislead, and to ensnare her subordinates and friends in a web of deceit.

1. Remember the story she told about studying The Wall Street Journal to explain her 10,000 percent profit in 1979 commodity trading? We now know that was a lie told to turn aside accusations that as the Governor’s wife she profited corruptly, her account being run by a lawyer for state poultry interests through a disreputable broker.

She lied for good reason: To admit otherwise would be to confess taking, and paying taxes on, what some think amounted to a $100,000 bribe.

2. The abuse of Presidential power known as Travelgate elicited another series of lies. She induced a White House lawyer to assert flatly to investigators that Mrs. Clinton did not order the firing of White House travel aides, who were then harassed by the F.B.I. and Justice Department to justify patronage replacement by Mrs. Clinton’s cronies.

Now we know, from a memo long concealed from investigators, that there would be “hell to pay” if the furious First Lady’s desires were scorned. The career of the lawyer who transmitted Hillary’s lie to authorities is now in jeopardy. Again, she lied with good reason: to avoid being identified as a vindictive political power player who used the F.B.I. to ruin the lives of people standing in the way of juicy patronage.

3. In the aftermath of the apparent suicide of her former partner and closest confidant, White House Deputy Counsel Vincent Foster, she ordered the overturn of an agreement to allow the Justice Department to examine the files in the dead man’s office. Her closest friends and aides, under oath, have been blatantly disremembering this likely obstruction of justice, and may have to pay for supporting Hillary’s lie with jail terms.

Again, the lying was not irrational. Investigators believe that damning records from the Rose Law Firm, wrongfully kept in Vincent Foster’s White House office, were spirited out in the dead of night and hidden from the law for two years — in Hillary’s closet, in Web Hubbell’s basement before his felony conviction, in the President’s secretary’s personal files — before some were forced out last week.

Why the White House concealment? For good reason: The records show Hillary Clinton was lying when she denied actively representing a criminal enterprise known as the Madison S.& L., and indicate she may have conspired with Web Hubbell’s father-in-law to make a sham land deal that cost taxpayers $3 million.

Why the belated release of some of the incriminating evidence? Not because it mysteriously turned up in offices previously searched. Certainly not because Hillary Clinton and her new hang-tough White House counsel want to respond fully to lawful subpoenas.

One reason for the Friday-night dribble of evidence from the White House is the discovery by the F.B.I. of copies of some of those records elsewhere. When Clinton witnesses are asked about specific items in “lost” records — which investigators have — the White House “finds” its copy and releases it. By concealing the Madison billing records two days beyond the statute of limitations, Hillary evaded a civil suit by bamboozled bank regulators.

Another reason for recent revelations is the imminent turning of former aides and partners of Hillary against her; they were willing to cover her lying when it advanced their careers, but are inclined to listen to their own lawyers when faced with perjury indictments.

Therefore, ask not “Why didn’t she just come clean at the beginning?” She had good reasons to lie; she is in the longtime habit of lying; and she has never been called to account for lying herself or in suborning lying in her aides and friends.

No wonder the President is fearful of holding a prime-time press conference. Having been separately deposed by the independent counsel at least twice, the President and First Lady would be well advised to retain separate defense counsel.

The late, great William Safire was a prophet.

Even though the Clintons have always appeared to be above the law, and skip past every scandal  like a fried egg in those Teflon Skillet commercials, with this November’s Presidential Election, an example must be set, so that the America’s secrets and the safety of our Military and Intelligence Operatives acting covertly in foreign lands, will be protected for the continued sovereignty of our nation.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Americans have watched all of Clinton’s scandals…and we’re angry.

Anger has played an important part in the forging of this great country, which will be lucky to survive Obama’s final year in office.

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, Americans are experiencing, even as I type this blog.

It is this anger, aimed at Professional Politicians and the Washingtonian Status has propelled Donald J. Trump and those who prefer that things remain the same, know it.

The indisputable fact of the matter is that, in “Open” Primaries, Trump did even better than he did in those primaries in which only Republicans could vote.

Americans are fed up with the Washingtonian Status Quo.

We are tired of professional politicians’ empty promises and their failure to properly address the issues facing America, in any way, except a self-serving one.

Hillary Clinton is a Professional Politician.

From the time that she spent behind the scenes of her husband’s political career in Arkansas to the days she occupied the White House as “Co-President” to her days as Senator from the State of New York to this very moment, Hillary Clinton has engaged in political activities involving corruption and downright criminality that would make Machiavelli blush.

America has endured enough duplicity and political chicanery in the last 7 years to last us for centuries. The deleterious effect of the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama has left a stain of incompetent leadership and out-of-control political correctness which will take years to wash away.

America and the rest of the Free World cannot afford the devastating effects of a Hillary Clinton Presidency.

One Week To Go: Democrats Implement Emergency Strategy of “Desperate Hypocrisy”

November 1, 2016

weiner-surpriseLast night, as I was with friends from my church, handing out hot dogs and candy to Trick or Treaters at our Small Group Leader’s House, you can probably guess what the topic of discussion was.

Basically, what those I talked to were wondering, with a week to go before the 2016 presidential Election, was:

What is going to happen next?

It was interesting to note, that as we stood around in that average American Front Yard on the Average America Street in Northwest Mississippi, that there was not a soul there that was going to vote for Hillary Clinton.

What American, in their right mind, could?

From her disdain of average Americans to her lack of ethics and morality to her intentional endangering of American Lives through her use of Private E-mail Servers to pass Top Secret Information , Hillary Clinton has proven herself time and time again to be unfit to hold the office of President of the United States of America.

In 2016, the name Hillary Rodham Clinton has already become synonymous with the untrustworthy nature of professional politicians.

A President of the United States must be trustworthy, not only for the reassurance of its citizens that they will do the right thing when a crisis occurs, but also for the assurance of our overseas allies, that we will have their backs in case of a crisis in their nation.

Whether the revelation of “the gift” of massive quantities of Uranium to the Russians or the formation of an Iranian Connection, as a result of money given to the Clinton Foundation,  as was previously  reported in 2015, or the revelation involving “dual-staffer” Cheryl Mills, the Clinton Foundation Scandal is not just a scandal involving money and unscrupulous political ladder-climbing through the peddling of “favors”, the actions of Hillary Clinton as Secretary of State crossed the line into the abhorrent abyss of a Conflict of Interest involving possible Treason.

Time and time again, from Watergate to Travelgate to Benghazigate, and now to Emailgate and Foundationgate, Hillary Clinton has proven to be a ruthless, untrustworthy, Machiavellian professional politician, who only cares about herself and her ascension to the Presidency of the United States of America.

Even during the Mythical “Co-Presidency” of the Clintons, slovenly adored by their minions in the Democrat Party and the Main Stream Media there was, as the late, great Paul Harvey used to say, “a rest of the story”.

Bill Clinton was inaugurated as the 42nd President of the United States of America on January 20, 1993.  Standing right behind him…and pushing hard was Hillary Rodham Clinton, by now widely acknowledged to be the more-driven, and politically ambitious one of the couple.

Billed as “the New Camelot” by the Main Stream Media, the Clintons strode arm-in-arm into their castle to preside over their new kingdom, where Progressivism in the name of “Moderation” would be the Law of the Land.

However, just as the reign of Arthur and Guinevere ended badly, into the Clintons’ storybook “Co-Presidency”, “a little rain” fell in the form of scandals and quite a few “Bimbo Eruptions” which brought about an inglorious end to all of their “peace and harmony”.

The raw, unmitigated corruption involving Hillary Clinton and her Foundation, revealed over the past year, along with these new revelations contained in the material released yesterday by Julian Assange, is breath-taking in its size and scope, as more and more unscrupulous details are being revealed.

And now, with 650,000 more e-mails having been discovered on Disgraced Former Congressman and Pedophile Anthony Weiner’s personal E-mail Server, which could include not only State Secrets, but more evidence of Pay-For-Play involving the Clintons and their Foundation, it is no wonder that my friends were asking last night,

What’s next?

Well, we received our answer this morning.

As I started preparing this morning’s post, the Main Headline on The Drudge Report read,

THE LONGEST WEEK
MEDIA MELTS DOWN: DONALD AND THE RUSSIANS
DONALD AND THE TAXES [AGAIN]

The first headline refers to a story from the Daily Mail, detailing everything that is going on during this last week of campaigning before next Tuesday’s election.

The next headlines, however, are both from The Former Bastion of Professional Journalism, The New York Times, who has degenerated over the past several decades into a Propaganda Rag for the Democratic Party and their Far left Political Agenda, including the election of their Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton.

The story concerning Trump and the Russians was the continuation of a fable, originated by Democratic Operatives, which has yet to be proven, that somehow the Republican Presidential Candidate is working with the Russians to rig our Presidential Election.

Unfortunately for The Times, even they had to admit in the article that there is no “there” there.

The story concerning Trump’s Business Taxes has been repeated ad infinitum by Liberal Propaganda Posters from Newspapers to Facebook Political Pages, seeking to pin a Badge of Dishonesty on Trump and failing miserably in their attempts.

You see, boys and girls, the reason Trump paid minimal Federal Taxes, is because he took advantage of LEGAL TAX BREAKS offered by our Tax System.

THE SAME TAX BREAKS THAT WEALTHY LIBERALS TAKE ADVANTAGE OF.

Both stories were written and published as acts of desperation.

The Main Stream Media  positively reeks of Liberal Hypocritical Desperation.

While their Candidate, Hillary Clinton, is being proven to be more and more corrupt daily, they are still desperately searching for anything to pin on Donald Trump, to try to salvage what is now looking like a Political Tsunami next Tuesday, despite what the Democrat-weighted National Push Polls have been rigged to show.

In fact, the authors of those polls have been forced to tighten them, in order to hold onto a sliver of credibility.

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh made the following observation on his nationally syndicated radio program…

…I’m just telling you, my considered opinion is that there are people all over this country in the Democrat Party who are literally upside down with fright and panic over what Comey did Friday. But more than that, it’s not just what Comey did.  I think the truth is that most of them know she did it.  She did something that’s not kosher.  She did something that’s wrong, and so did Obama. 

They know Obama lied about her server and when he knew about it. They know he lied about not using it. They know he made up a fake name to communicate with her on it. They know he lied about Obamacare. They know how unpopular that is.  If they’re actually telling themselves that they’re sitting at the top of the of the heap and this country cannot wait to elect Hillary Clinton, they are in a state of denial.  So we move forward to audio sound bite number nine.  Pat Caddell was on the Fox report last night on the Fox News Channel, being interviewed by Harris Faulkner.  Here’s how it went.

CADDELL:  I think we’re already seeing signs that this could be like 1980, which is the previously — and I was on the wrong side of that one — the only election which went in close and came out big because events started pushing the boat, and I believe, given the structure of attitudes against what’s been going on overall in the country, that helps.

RUSH:  Okay.  Let’s go back to 1980.  We dug up even more sound bites from 1980. Back to NBC, November 4th, election night, 1980, John Chancellor and he’s talking about Helen Thomas, ’cause they’re in a state of shock.  They expected Carter to win.  All the polls had Carter up by nine, and Reagan has won a landslide.  They announced it an hour and 10 minutes after going on the air.  At 8:10 p.m.  California still had almost two hours left to vote, three hours left to vote.  And they’d already called it a landslide, so now they’re talking about what the hell happened.

CHANCELLOR:  Well, let me tell you what Helen Thomas of the UP reported tonight.  She’s learned that the president was informed Monday night that samplings taken by pollster Pat Caddell showed it was “all over,” in those quotes.

RUSH:  Pat Caddell was Carter’s pollster, and they knew the weekend before the election that it was all over.  But Pat Caddell didn’t tell John Chancellor.  They didn’t tell anybody else.  But Helen Thomas of UPI found out about it.  And then Brokaw and Judy Woodruff discussed it but I have to take a break here.  We’ll get to them when we get back.

…RUSH: Here’s Tom Brokaw, Judy Woodruff discussing Reagan coming out of nowhere, ostensibly, and beating Jimmy Carter in 1980, and they’re referring to Pat Caddell, who says that he is beginning to sense this election has the same feel that he had in 1980 when Reagan came out of nowhere to beat Carter.  Here’s Woodruff and Brokaw.

BROKAW:  Pat Caddell was saying that it broke bad for them over the weekend, that the Iranian hostage situation was the final undoing.  They can’t believe it was only that, though, do they?

WOODRUFF:  Well, that is what Pat Caddell is saying.  I’m sure you’re aware there are other pollsters who will have other points of view on that.  I know that Bob Teeter, who has done some polling for the Republicans, has said that the trend was obvious early last week when the undecided voters started breaking toward Reagan, most of them toward Reagan and not toward Carter. 

And that was exactly what the Carter campaign had been counting on all along.  The very heavily negative Reagan speeches the president was making, the commercials on television they were running were anti-Reagan, anti-Reagan, and they hoped that that would, in the end, put the pressure on, bring the undecided voters and the Anderson supporters back to the president.  It didn’t happen.  They’ve gone to Reagan.

RUSH:  That’s why Caddell seems to feel it’s somewhat — look, nobody’s predicting 1980 is gonna take place here.  It’s just Pat Caddell was there, he’s a Carterite and he says he’s getting the same kind of feeling.  Back in 1980, with all these negative ads running in the last week against Reagan — and I remember them.  And, folks, the Democrats’ strategy hasn’t changed.  Reagan was yesterday’s racist, sexist, bigot, homophobe, no business being in politics, a B-rated movie actor.  Yeah, he was governor of California, but that didn’t count for anything.  Reagan was a slow thinking, plodding, amiable dunce kind of thing, never, ever took him seriously. 

And it dovetails with the same tactics that Hillary and the Democrats are using about Trump.  No business being in politics, this guy’s a reality TV star, hotels and casinos.  He’s got in business being in politics.  He’s a reprobate, doesn’t know what he’s doing.  And yet there are people daily now moving into the Trump camp.  So it is what it is, and nobody knows yet how this is gonna end up.  Let’s be clear and remind everybody of that again.  

So,

What’s next?

A week of out-of-control Democratic Operative Hypocritical Desperation followed by a repeat of the Presidential Election of 1980, perhaps?

Are we one week away from a fresh, new “Morning in America”?

Lord, I hope so.

Eric Erikson Calls Christian Trump Voters “Hypocrites”. This “Christian American Conservative” Rebukes Him.

October 31, 2016

untitled-110Erick Erickson is a politically conservative American blogger who hosts radio show Atlanta’s Evening News with Erick Erickson, broadcast on 750 WSB. He previously served as an editor-in-chief of the conservative political blog RedState and was a political contributor for CNN.  Now, he runs an online political magazine titled “TheResurgent.com” and appears on Fox News as a contributor.

Also, in the past, he has been privileged to be one of the Guest Hosts who fill in for the Godfather of Talk Radio, Rush Limbaugh, on his nationally syndicated radio program.

He has not had that privilege lately.

There may be a reason why.

Yesterday, Mr. Erickson tweeted the following…

The people who cheered on Comey months ago suddenly attack him. As intellectually dishonest as Christians defending Trump.

You guessed it, boys and girls.

Mr. Erickson, if you have not heard of him before, is one of those who considers themselves “TRUE Conservatives”

That’s right. he’s a #NeverTrumper.

Mr. Erickson’s generalization of “Christian American Conservatives” who are voting for Trump as “hypocrites”, got this Southern Man’s dander up…because as the sub-title on my blog states:

I AM ONE. (Praise God.)

That being said…

I believe that Trump is not as Conservative on some issues as I am. However, while I do disagree with Trump every now and then, I also believe that

  1. He genuinely loves this country and cares about the American People.
  2. He is not a Hillary Clinton plant, simply running to secure the election for her.
  3. He is not a part of the plot by the Illuminati to destroy America.

…Or, any other cockamamie “theory” that the “TRUE Conservatives” on the Internet have vomited forth about him, in order to justify their America-endangering ongoing temper tantrum, caused by Ted Cruz’s failure to win the Republican Primary.

I am a member of a Contemporary Evangelical Church, which I attend regularly, when I am not working on Sunday.

My faith is not marginal. I stand on The Solid Rock, not shifting sands.

America is a Constitutional Republic, not a Theocracy. And, as such, Americans, including the 75% of us who declare that Jesus Christ is our Personal Savior, must each make our own individual choice as to whom would best represent us as the Leader of the Free World, based upon both logic and the Spiritual Gift of Discernment.

Logic dictates that I vote for someone who will keep my family, my friends, and my country safe from the murderous barbarians that are at our gates. It also drives me to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House as the representative of the political party whose sitting President has driven this Sovereign Nation straight down the Highway to Hell, over the last seven years.

Judging from the Republican Primaries’ outcome, and the overflowing crowds at his Campaign Rallies that the MSM, with eight days to go until Election Day, and with the possibility of a Federal indictment of Hillary Clinton looming, still refuses to acknowledge, the overwhelming majority of voters believe that candidate to be Donald J. Trump.

During the Republican Primary Season, I was called everything but “a Child of God”, simply because I wrote factual posts about Donald J. Trump and stated that I would pencil in the bubble beside his name as my choice to fill the Office of President of the United States of America.

According to “TRUE Conservatives” like Eric Erickson and the amateurish self-proclaimed “TRUE Conservative” Political Pundits who hang out on Facebook Political Pages, spamming them ad infinitum, you are not truly a Christian, nor a “True Conservative”, if you are willing to make that choice.

However, I beg to differ.

#NeverTrumpers are so consumed with their hatred for Trump and their disappointment over the results of the Republican Primary Elections, that they simply do not care was sort of damage they can do to the quest of average Americans to keep the Queen of mean, Hillary Clinton, from succeeding President Barack Hussein Obama.

Their hatred  over Trump’s political success has eradicated their rationality.

What caused the spectacular collapse of the campaign of their candidate of choice, Senator Ted Cruz, which has now led to Citizen Statesman Donald J. Trump being on the cusp of being elected our next President?

A while back, I wrote that, in the case of Senator Ted Cruz, his image of not being just another politician, was tarnished by the actions of those working for him, in regards to the political shenanigans that were being played against Donald J. Trump.

Also, instead of trying to reach out to other parts of the voting base, as Trump did, Cruz instead reached out to fellow politicians, seeking their support. However, upon reflection, I believe there is even more to the story of the collapse of the Cruz Campaign.

As I have documented before, the success of Donald J. Trump and his Campaign, is one of a visceral and palpable anger, that is presently held by Americans for Professional Politicians.

I believe that this anger has not only been caused by the blatant self-serving interests of those we have elected to serve us in Washington, DC, but also by
the realization by average Americans that our country is under attack by enemies, both foreign and domestic.

Average Americans, like you and me, love our country.

We are tired of being told by the present Administration and their Liberal Minions in the Main Stream Media, that America is “just another country”, when we have been raised to believe, by those who exemplified it, in American Exceptionalism.

Our ancestors, relatives, and friends have died in the defense of our nation and our Traditional American Values.

And, our love and respect for those who have gone before us, simply will not allow us to stand idly by, and watch the continued degradation and purposeful destruction of a nation that was built through their sacrifices.

Modern American Liberals call this attitude “Nationalism” and/or “Jingoism”.

Those of us here in America’s Heartland, simply call it “being an American.”

The bold and brash nature of Trump and his “Political Correctness be d*mned” way of speaking, continues to strike a resonant chord in the hearts of average Americans, who, quite simply, are fed up with being told that we’re wrong for believing in these Traditional American Values.

What the Liberals, to this day,  do not seem to understand, is the more that they send paid protesters out to stop Trump from speaking and the more baseless propaganda that the Main Stream Media attempts to force-feed us every day on local and national newscasts, the more average Americans will support him, because, despite all of their best efforts to turn America into a Democratic Socialist Nation , we remain the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.

If this was any other time in the history of presidential elections, Senator Ted Cruz would probably be faring better.

Unfortunately for Senator Ted Cruz, thanks to his own bad choices and the contempt of the American Voting Public for professional politicians at this time, Trump sailed to victory in the Republican Primary.

One of those bad choices was forging an alliance with Radio Talk Show Host Glenn Beck.

Imperceptible at first, Beck slowly, over a span of years, changed from being an analyzer of the news, to a maker of it. He changed from being a commentator to being a self-appointed prophet.

Now, with the very real possibility of Donald J. Trump becoming the next President of the United States , Beck, whose severe case of Trump Derangement Syndrome, has made his once-entertaining radio program unlistenable, has turned into an Old Testament Prophet, shaming those Christians who may even be thinking about voting for Trump.

I do believe that Beck’s Holy Garments have ridden up into a dark and lonely place.

Once one of my favorite radio show hosts to listen to, Beck has, in the last couple of years, become unlistenable.

Quoting Conservative Radio Talk Show Host Laura Ingraham, from an article written for her website, Lifezette.com,

…a Donald Trump administration that would face real checks and balances, or a Hillary Clinton administration that would face almost none. Under these circumstances, it seems obvious that the prudent thing for a skeptical conservative to do is work with the Trump supporters to defeat Hillary Clinton — she is the much greater, and much more immediate, threat. I believe that a lot of conservatives realize these facts, but are troubled with the notion that by voting for Trump, they would be personally endorsing everything he says and does. But that is simply not true. We are talking about a temporary political alliance to keep Hillary Clinton out of the White House. No one seriously believes that John Adams supported slavery because he worked with slaveholders to throw the British out of Massachusetts. No one seriously believes that Churchill supported communism because he worked with Stalin to defeat Hitler. No one seriously believes that Hamilton and Madison agreed on everything because they cooperated on the Federalist Papers. There’s a reason we say that “politics makes strange bedfellows” — because political crises sometimes force people to form alliances with people they would otherwise oppose. For some conservatives, the 2016 election is plainly one of those times.

In short, when you apply the Cruz test to this election, it is clear that conservatives of good conscience can and should support Donald Trump. Indeed, failure to do so will put our entire political system — with all of the civil liberties we hold dear — at risk. I urge those conservatives who are concerned about Trump to think very, very carefully about this election, and work with the rest of us to defeat Hillary Clinton.

According to those “TRUE Conservatives”, like Eric Erickson, who believe that they are more “principled” than those of us Christian Conservatives who are going to vote for Trump, you are not truly a Christian or a “Principled Conservative”, if you are willing to support and vote for the Republican Presidential Candidate.

However, I beg to differ, and I stand with the Reverend Franklin Graham on this issue.

In  a  Facebook Post, written during the Republican Primaries, Rev. Graham wrote:

Trump Madness—It’s “trumping” everything in the news, even March Madness. Do you believe protesters blocking the road to his rally to stop people from getting there today? There are those who passionately support him and others who are adamantly against him. He’s a political phenomenon like our country hasn’t seen before. I don’t think America has ever had a presidential candidate opposed by both establishments, Republican and Democratic, as well as the sitting president. I just hope that as a result of this unforgettable campaign season, politicians on all sides will get the message loud and clear that Americans are tired of the status quo and the corruption that has gripped Washington. Join me in praying for the 2016 elections and for the future of this nation.

That being said, Rev. Graham, in a previous interview, done with CBN, stated that  “a left movement within the evangelical community that are telling people, ‘If so-and-so wins or this person wins don’t vote.’ ” Rev. Graham went on to add, “I’m just saying, I don’t care who wins and who’s out there, you have to vote.”

If Hillary Clinton wins the presidency, how does that prove your Christianity or prove you to be a person of principle? All it proves is that you stood by and let the country go to hell in a hand-basket.

I do not believe that Jesus would be a part of the Social Justice Movement, which is so popular among Liberal Churches, today. His was and is a soul-saving movement. One that still brings hundreds of thousand of people to individual salvation on this terrestrial ball every day. A movement that, in fact, was embraced by the founders of this cherished land.

Now is not the time to be pressing Christian Americans to make a “collective” choice to not support Trump, to move as “a Body”, if you will.

That being said, allow me to also state that I believe that American Evangelicals must excise their Spiritual Gift of Discernment in choosing between Donald J. Trump and Hillary Clinton for the job of President.

When Mitt Romney was the Republican Candidate for President in 2012, a lot of Americans stayed home, rather than vote for Romney.

That may have helped those individuals feel better about themselves, but it also helped to bring them and their fellow citizens four more years of economic suffering under the Presidency of Barack Hussein Obama (mm mmm mmmm).

Just as a Christian’s Salvation is not manifested as a Collective Experience, but a Personal one, so is a Christian American’s Voting Rights a Personal Experience.

I had somebody tell me during the Primaries, that they would “pray for me” to make the “right” choice, in the upcoming Presidential Election.

While the prayers of others are always appreciated, that hit me as if it was “The Church Lady” saying,

Well, bless your heart.

That’s an old Southern insult, in case you didn’t know.

My support of Donald  J. Trump, through the articles that I write, is my individual choice, made through a detailed study of facts and with a heart-felt reverence toward this Sacred Land and the One who brought our Forefathers here.

Can you vote for Donald J. Trump and still be a Christian?

Certainly you can.

Your Salvation is not determined by your vote…but, by God’s Grace.

And…

As Christians we are instructed to individually listen to that “Still Small Voice” inside us.

While Christians, in church and outside of it, represent the corporate Body of Christ, according to scripture, we each possess the Spiritual Gifts of Free Will and Discernment.

These gifts are used by each of us on a daily basis, including aiding in our decision to support a Presidential Candidate in the Election of 2016.

Unlike Liberals and Marxists (but, I may be repeating myself), we do not vote as a collective, nor should we.

There are no Saints who will be running as for the President of the United States of America, on either side. Just men and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.

And, America’s Christian Churches are not a Shrine for Saints. They are a Hospital for Sinners.

I’m just sayin’.

Each of us must decide for ourselves, whom we will vote for.

Since the “Shot Heard ‘Round The World” was fired on that fateful morning of April 19, 1775, this country has been built by Christian Americans making individual choices.

While we can not know what the actual future of America under either candidate would bring,  what is known , is that there was only one Perfect Man.

What is also known, is that there are only two legitimate choices for President in this election. And, staying home or voting stupidly is what got us Barack Hussein Obama.

America cannot afford to elect Hillary Clinton. God does not call upon us to destroy the very nation which he created through the hard work and sacrifice of Christian men and women.

There is a great difference between being “principled” and being hurt, angry, and hardheaded because your favorite political candidate did not win the Republican Primary Election.

Just as mistakes are made in our local churches by believing that the wishes of man are the Will of God, the choice you make to not vote or to vote stupidly is your choice alone, made through God’s Gift of Free Will.

As I said earlier in this post, our Individual Salvation is not determined by whom we vote for…but, by God’s Grace.

However, the much-needed Reclamation of America most certainly will be.

And, that is why this Christian American Conservative is voting for Donald J. Trump.

In closing, to those self-identified “True Conservative Facebook Political Pundits” out there, who seem to be suffering from a “logic impaction” (i.e., their head is presently lodged in a very dark and lonely place):

If your own personal , emotional, visceral temper tantrum-inducing hatred of Donald Trump precludes you from exercising your right to vote or causes you to think that a “protest vote” for a non-viable candidate is the correct action to take in this crucial election which will determine America’s Future…

…perhaps it is YOU who is not a “TRUE CONSERVATIVE”.

Until He Comes,

KJ
