What Do the Democrats Stand For Going Into the Midterms…Besides Hate?

May 16, 2018

dem-machine-dt-600

Does anyone actually know what the Democratic Party Platform is going into the Midterm Elections?

From what I have seen while watching the news, both local and national, all they seem to stand for is their deep, abiding, visceral hatred of the 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

Back on March 3rd of this year, Charlie Savage wrote the following in a News Analysis posted on NYTimes.com

Despite simmering unrest, there have been only a few extraordinary moments that broke the mold of public stability. Those include peaceful demonstrations, like the post-inaugural women’s march and the airport protests against Mr. Trump’s initial ban on travelers from seven Muslim countries. Far more disturbing, they also include the near-fatal shooting of a Republican congressman and several other people at a baseball practice by a man who was furious at Mr. Trump and Republicans, and the spectacle of throngs of white supremacists emboldened by the era to march in Charlottesville, Va. — culminating in an apparent neo-Nazi sympathizer plowing his car into anti-racist counterprotesters, injuring dozens of people and killing a woman. Fortunately, those two moments of extreme political violence have been exceptions.

For a counterexample of how a time of intense political bitterness can start to tear this country apart, look back exactly half a century to 1968. In that chaotic year, America slashed and clawed at itself amid the assassination of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the riots that followed; the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy as he ran for president; swelling antiwar demonstrations on college campuses amid growing recognition that the government had been lying about the course of the Vietnam War; and the police beatings of protesters in Chicago outside the Democratic National Convention.

Factors like the draft and the race relations of the period made that tumultuous year a particular historical moment. But one difference between then and now is salient: Arguably, there was little reason to believe that the November 1968 election was likely to provide immediate relief.

We are lucky that so far 2018 does not look like a new 1968. But the relative calm may be like an unexploded bomb, its volatility not so much defused as contained by the thought that Trump Republicans will be punished in the Nov. 6 midterm elections. These expectations are widespread. After the big Democratic special election victories in places handily carried by Mr. Trump in 2016, from Virginia and Alabama to Wisconsin, Republican lawmakers in purple districts are retiring to avoid ending their careers in humiliating defeats.

Democrats, meanwhile, relish visions of a new congressional majority wielding its subpoena power to flay the Trump administration with oversight investigations. They can see it now: Making public Mr. Trump’s hidden tax returns and otherwise laying bare any financial dealings between foreign governments and his businesses. Inviting the women who have accused him of sexual misconduct to testify at a televised hearing. Unearthing what his appointees have been doing in places like the Environmental Protection Agency, where collection of fines from polluters has plummeted.

Almost taking a House flip for granted, Democrats whisper that a tsunami-level wave would also flip the Senate and stop Mr. Trump’s assembly line for turning conservative lawyers into life-tenured federal judges. Some even fantasize about impeachment.

Such vivid anticipation steers those sputtering at Mr. Trump’s presidency to take deep breaths and bide their time until Nov. 6, which draws closer every day: The 2018 campaign cycle formally starts this week with primary voting in Texas.

But a significant Democratic wave may not materialize. Good economic news, for example, tends to blunt anti-incumbent sentiments.

Having written this at the beginning of March, Mr. Savage could not have foreseen the great things which President Trump would accomplish between then and now, such as retrieving the 3 American Hostages from North Korea and opening the United States Embassy in Jerusalem way ahead of schedule.

However, he did get one thing right:

It’s the Economy, stupid!

Average Americans living in the Heartland, like myself, love getting extra take home pay.

Trump’s efforts to turn around America’s Economy are greatly appreciated by us.

On the other hand, what have the Democrats, who desperately want us to vote for them in the Midterm Elections, done for us?

Not a cotton-pickin’ thing.

In fact, if you are a businessman or an employee in Seattle, Washington, they are forcing the Marxist Theory of Socialism down your throats by levying a “Head Tax” on you, in order to “care for Seattle’s homeless population”.

Not to sound crass and uncaring, but have those Far Left Politicians up there run all of the Christian Charities, like Memphis’ Union Mission, out of town?

But, I digress…

Evidently, it is like Rush Limbaugh has been saying for quite a while now,

There are no Moderates left in the Democratic Party.

Otherwise, Liberals would have stopped their ongoing National Temper Tantrum which began the night of November 8, 2016, months ago.

Just like the child who believes that they will receive attention by jumping up and down, hollering, screaming, and crying until their eyes turn red and their face turns blue, Democrats have made the mistake,, which came from their own arrogance, that they majority of Americans hold the same visceral hatred from President Trump that they do.

They actually still believe, even after losing the 2016 Presidential Election, that theirs is the majority political philosophy in our nation.

When you question them about that, they will argue that Hillary received the majority of the Popular Vote.

However, here are some facts that you can answer them with…

32603684_886896691506331_4329291197160882176_n

Hate has never accomplished anything.

This country was not established on hate.

This country was established by men and women yearning to be free to worship God as they chose to do so.

Americans cherish our Liberty.

Average Americans have seen what Marxism has done to other countries around the world and we want no part of it.

Democrats, if you want any chance at holding the Presidency ever again, lose the hate, lose the arrogant intolerance, and embrace American Reality,

It’s too late for the Midterms.

As the brilliant cartoon by Antonio Branco illustrates above, that “Blue Wave” that you were counting on….

…is going to be a drip.

Trump’s Popularity Polls Climb as Christians Continue to Support Him…Why?

May 6, 2018

trump-national-day-of-prayer-2

May our Nation and our people never forget the love, grace, and goodness of our Maker, and may our praise and gratitude never cease. – President Donald J. Trump,National Day of Prayer Proclamation, May 3, 2018

The Christian Post reports that

President Donald Trump signed an executive order creating the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives, expanding upon previous administrations’ faith-based initiatives.

At a National Day of Prayer event held at the White House Rose Garden on Thursday morning that featured speakers of diverse religious backgrounds, President Trump signed the executive order.

“The executive branch wants faith-based and community organizations, to the fullest opportunity permitted by law, to compete on a level playing field for grants, contracts, programs, and other Federal funding opportunities,” reads the order in part.

“The efforts of faith-based and community organizations are essential to revitalizing communities, and the Federal Government welcomes opportunities to partner with such organizations through innovative, measurable, and outcome-driven initiatives.”

In his remarks at the Rose Garden event, Trump championed his administration’s efforts to protect the religious liberty of people both in the United States and overseas and labeled the executive order a “historic action.”

“The faith initiative will help design new policies that recognize the vital role of faith in our families, in our communities, and our great country,” stated Trump.

“This office will also help ensure that faith-based organizations will have equal access to government funding and the equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs. We take this step because we know that in solving the many, many problems and our great challenges, faith is more powerful than government. And nothing is more powerful than God.”

Another story found at The Christian Post shows that President Trump practices what he preaches.

In an interview with CBN News shortly after Trump held a celebration for the National Day of Prayer in the Rose Garden, Pence said the president has encouraged praying in the White House by personally promoting the practice himself.

“There’s prayer going on on a regular basis in this White House. And it’s one of the most meaningful things to me, whether it’s public meetings or not, I’ve lost count of the number of times that the president has nudged me, or nudged another member of the Cabinet and said, ‘Let’s start this meeting with prayer,'” Pence said.

That loud thunderclap that you just heard was the sound of Internet Trolls’ and NeverTrumpers’ sphincters all slamming shut in unison across the country over this post.

With the Trump-Russia Collusion Fairy Tale fading slowly into the sunset, Liberals’ “Big Weapon” against Trump has been the word of a woman who has made her living on her back claming that she and the President had an affair and that she was paid off to go away.

The problem facing Liberals is that this story has not had the earth-shaking impact on the President’s popularity that they thought it would.

The fact of the matter is that Trump’s popularity just grew by 18 points in a Reuter’s Poll, rising to 50% in a Liberal -heavy survey.

Why aren’t Americans buying what the Democratic Party and their Vanguard, the Main Stream Media, are so desperately attempting to sell?

Perhaps it has to do with what Dr. James Dobson, the Christian Leader who founded “Focus on the Family” said before the 2016 Presidential Election about Trump’s faith.

Only the Lord knows the condition of a person’s heart. I can only tell you what I’ve heard. First, Trump appears to be tender to things of the Spirit. I also hear that Paula White has known Trump for years and that she personally led him to Christ. Do I know that for sure? No. Do I know the details of that alleged conversion? I can’t say that I do. But there are many Christian leaders who are serving on a faith advisory committee for Trump in the future. I am among them. There are about 25 of us that include Jerry Falwell, Jr., Robert Jeffress, Jack Graham, Ben Carson, James Robison, Michele Bachmann, and many others whom you would probably know. We’ve all agreed to serve. How will that play out if Trump becomes president? I don’t know. It is a good start, I would think.

If anything, this man is a baby Christian who doesn’t have a clue about how believers think, talk and act. All I can tell you is that we have only two choices, Hillary or Donald. Hillary scares me to death. And, if Christians stay home because he isn’t a better candidate, Hillary will run the world for perhaps eight years. The very thought of that haunts my nights and days. One thing is sure: we need to be in prayer for our nation at this time of crisis.

Dr. Dobson was not alone.

The thought of Hillary becoming President of the United States of America scared a lot of Americans.

But, I digress…

So, why are Christian Americans still supporting President Trump?

Our Salvation is not determined by the support of our American President…but, by God’s Grace.

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 continue to support President Trump.

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

There were no Saints who ran for the President of the United States of America, on either side.

Just a flawed man, as we all are, and a woman…a very mean and evil woman.

When President Trump, like the rest of Christian Americans, attends a Sunday Morning Service, he is not sitting in a Shrine for Saints. He is sitting in a Hospital for Sinners.

Like the rest of us Christians, President Trump does not have to be perfect…just FORGIVEN.

I’m just sayin’.

The 2018 Academy Awards: Disconnected Liberals Honor Themselves

March 5, 2018

untitled (228)

The Academy Awards were the brainchild of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS), formed in 1927. The AMPAS was created through collaborative effort of 36 most prominent individuals, who worked within the motion picture industry.

Film actor Douglas Fairbanks, Sr. was chosen as the first president of the Academy. The awards were established to honor the talented artists of the Motion Picture Industry. The first Academy Awards ceremony was held on May 16, 1929, at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel. It was a very private affair, with only two hundred seventy people as guests. The awards were given in the banquet, set up at the hotel’s Blossom Room. The tickets for the guest tickets cost $5.

The first Oscar Ceremony consisted of the handing out of awards in 12 categories and two special honors.

The awards were meant to honor people responsible for cinematic achievements in 1927 and 1928. There was a very little element of surprise at the first Oscar Awards ceremony, as the names of the winners had been declared three months in advance. The entire affair was a lengthy one, filled with speeches. However, Douglas Fairbanks, the Academy President, moved things along as best he could, handing out the golden statues to the winners like a modern-day McDonalds Employee at the Drive-Thru Window.

Yes, boys and girls, once upon a time the Academy Awards celebrated individual achievement in the field of Professional Cinema.

That was then. This is now.

FoxNews,com reports that

The 90th annual Academy Awards kicked off Sunday with returning host Jimmy Kimmel taking the stage encouraging positivity, before quickly taking jabs at President Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and even Fox News viewers.

Despite calling for a show filled with positivity, both the host and stars like Kumail Nanjiani and Lupita Nyong’o made the movie-centric show political.

Kimmel began with an old-timey announcement in which he listed the stars in attendance, making his first political jab with “Black Panther” actress Lupita Nyong’o.

“The stunning Lupita Nyong’o, she was born in Mexico and raised in Kenya,” Kimmel said at the top of the show. “Let the tweetstorm from the president’s toilet begin!”

From there, the host launched into a positive monologue that poked fun at the whirlwind year in Hollywood, which saw the #MeToo and Time’s Up movements dominate the headlines and previous award shows. In commenting on the year’s diversity, he highlighted “Get Out” helmer Jordan Peele.

“Jordan is only the first person in 90 years to be nominated for directing, writing and best picture for his debut film,” he said. “What a debut it was. None other than President Trump called ‘Get Out’ the best first three-quarters of a movie this year.”

The final political jab came when discussing the gay romance film “Call Me By Your Name.” The host noted that the film, despite being an Oscar-nominated feature, did not score big at the box office.

“We don’t make films like ‘Call Me By Your Name’ for money,” he quipped. “We make them to upset Mike Pence.”

He lauded the actual Oscar statue, noting its age of 90 and taking a swipe at Fox News viewers in the process: “Oscar is 90 years old tonight, which means he’s probably at home tonight watching Fox News.”

He also said the Oscar, “Keeps his hands where you can see them, never says a rude word, and most importantly no penis at all. He is literally a statue of limitations.”

Yes, folks, those “jokes” were actually meant to be funny.

I wonder what the swashbuckling man’s man, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., would have thought about this bunch of no-talent crybabies who have politicized the award show that he worked so had to get off the ground?

He probably would have punched Kimmel right in the mouth.

Once again, the Hollywood “Elite” on the Left of the Political Spectrum who voted for Hillary Clinton to be our next President of the United States of America, continue in public to show their hindquarters, while throwing the longest temper tantrum that the world has ever seen over the results of an American Presidential Election, that happened almost a year and a half ago.

These self-proclaimed activists, are making a lie out of the claim that they have made for years that they are the most tolerant…and “gifted” among us.

The Liberal 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”.

Over the last few several decades, Hollywood has vied for the title of “Sin City” with “Lost Wages (Las Vegas) through its glorification of the decadent and demonic. The family-friendly, morally based classic horror films such as “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, and “The Wolf Man”, have long since been replaced by Jason, Freddy, “Jigsaw”, and “Insidious”.

Meanwhile, love stories like “The Notebook” have been pushed aside for celebrations of pedophilia, like “Call Me By My Name”.

What is interesting to note, though, in the middle of the continuing Liberal Takeover and ongoing Political Meltdown in Hollyweird is the backlash by average Americans to the attempted shaping of our American Culture and Society. Please note the overwhelming popularity of Super Hero Movies, in which Good triumphs over Evil.

Just like the results of the 2016 Presidential Election.

Yes…I said it.

Just like their fellow Modern American Liberals who run Democratic Party, the disconnected “dancing monkeys” in Tinsel Town and the Big Apple never saw Trump’s victory coming.

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

I don’t remember any of us average Americans asking them for their opinion as to how we should vote, do you?

Perhaps, if they got their noses out of the air and actually associated with their families and former friends “back home”, instead of kissing each other’s hindquarters at the latest Premiere or “social event”, perhaps they and reality would not have taken divergent paths, and they would conduct themselves and comport themselves like those Hollywood Legends before them, who served their country during World War II, doing whatever they could to help America defeat fascism.

And, perhaps, they would have had the intestinal fortitude to have shown Harvey Weinstein the door a long time ago.

Last night was nothing but an exercise in self-adulation by a bunch of self- absorbed, over-medicated, under-talented, bodyguard-using, gated community-living America-hating Liberals who want to tell us “commoners” that we should not listen to that still small voice in each of us and embrace decadence and turn in our Bibles and guns, while at the same time foreswearing any traditional American Ethics and Values which we still hold dear, in order to properly worship them and the Altar of Political Correctness which they have helped to create.

To which I and the overwhelming majority of average Americans living between the coasts reply in unison…

SHUT UP AND ACT!!!

When I Named Anti-Trump Protestors “New Bolsheviks,” I Was Right

February 17, 2018

th (97)

The year is 1903, The Russian Social Democratic Party is meeting in London. All the intellectuals in their party have been arguing since the end of the 1800’s as to the direction the party should take. One year earlier, in 1902, a man named Lenin, living in exile, wrote a paper entitled, “What Is To Be Done”.

The work was smuggled into Russia and spelled out his views regarding what the Social Democrats should be doing as a party. Lenin attacked party members who “were content to wait while history took its predetermined course.” Rather than wait, Lenin wanted to kick-start the issue he believed in to get things done rather than wait on intellectuals sitting around refuting each other’s ideas. The meeting resulted in a Party split creating the Mentsheviks and the Bolsheviks. The two factions reunited under Lenin in April 1905. Lenin went on to organize the November 1917 Russian Revolution on the Promise of “peace. bread, and land”.

Isn’t that like “sharing the wealth”?

But, I digress…

It appears as if a “Russian Revolution” was attempted in our Sovereign Nation.

Only this time…it failed.

As reported on www.SpartaReport.com yesterday, 13 Russian Nationals have been indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller for “meddling” in the 2016 Presidential Election.

Per Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, no Americans were involved in the activities which led to this indictment.

FoxNews.com reports that

The Russians indicted for meddling in the 2016 presidential contest were also behind anti-Trump rallies after the election, prosecutors said Friday, revealing another aspect of Russia’s alleged interference as it worked to sow discord in the United States.

“After the election, the defendants allegedly staged rallies to support the president-elect while simultaneously staging rallies to protest his election,” Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in a Friday press conference.

“For example, the defendants organized one rally to support the president-elect and another rally to oppose him, both in New York on the same day,” he said.

Friday’s indictment filing – signed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller – says the defendants organized a Nov. 12 “Trump is NOT my President” rally in New York.

Photos from that day show protesters in Manhattan holding signs that say “stop Trump” and “not my president.”

The November rallies are the only anti-Trump events that the indictment links to these Russian actors. It does not draw any connections to the widespread anti-Trump protests that were organized after his inauguration.

Thirteen Russian nationals were charged Friday. During the election, according to the filing, the Russians supported Trump and worked to spread derogatory information on Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Their “strategic goal” was to “sow discord in the U.S. political system,” the indictment said.

…In a statement released by the White House, Trump said Friday: “We cannot allow those seeking to sow confusion, discord, and rancor to be successful.”

He also seized on Rosenstein’s comment that the election results were not impacted by the Russians’ activity.

“Russia started their anti-US campaign in 2014, long before I announced that I would run for President,” Trump tweeted. “The results of the election were not impacted. The Trump campaign did nothing wrong – no collusion!”

Democrats on Capitol Hill, though, are still suggesting that people associated with Trump or his campaign could have been involved in Russia’s meddling.

Of course they are.

Mueller’s indictment blows their whole Trump/Russian Collusion Fairy Tale completely out of the water.

The Democrats are now living in a Glass House.

If they keep pressing for further investigation into possible “collusion” by members of the Trump Campaign in the years before the election, could that not bring up investigation into Former President Barack Hussein Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s “collusion” with the Russian Government during the time of the Uranium One Deal?

As I have written before, there are so many intricate working parts in play regarding this whole political mess, from the influence of the Puppet Master George Soros and his manipulation of the Political Activists within and without the Democratic Party to the Machiavellian plans and schemes hatched by the Deep State Operatives lodged within the hierarchy of the Department of Justice and the FBI, that it reads like a Tom Clancy novel.

…with no Jack Ryan in sight.

The Russians played on the gullibility and later, the post-election heartbreak and angst of the young millennial Far Left Clintonistas, who were all “wee-wee’d up” after the Queen of Mean was defeated by a “Commoner”, New York Businessman and Entrepreneur, Donald J. Trump.

These “fragile snowflakes” were used by the Russians in the same manner as Vladimir Lenin used his dupes in the Russian Revolution: as a weapon of “change” and discord in order to tear down an established government for their own nefarious ends.

And, now, over a year later, with this indictment, it turns out that the Democrats are still attempting to lay their loss on President Trump somehow “colluding with the Russians”, even though “no Americans were involved”.

It now appears that I was right when I decided to refer to these Anti-Trump Protesters as “The New Bolsheviks”.

And with Pelosi and the Democrats inferring that Trump and his Campaign Staff WERE involved, it appears that Vladimir Lenin was right, when he wrote that

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

…At least to those perpetuating it.

Like Pavlov’s Dog After a Bell, Liberals Cry for Gun Control After Parkland Massacre

February 15, 2018

e8a97af7139635a86508bb9e65866b73

“You won’t get gun control by disarming law-abiding citizens. There’s only one way to get real gun control: Disarm the thugs and the criminals, lock them up and if you don’t actually throw away the key, at least lose it for a long time… It’s a nasty truth, but those who seek to inflict harm are not fazed by gun controllers. I happen to know this from personal experience.” – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

Just hours after a lone gunman open fired on students in a Florida high school, killing at least 17, comedian Chelsea Handler took to Twitter to capitalize on the tragic incident and blame Republicans, saying that they now “have blood on their hands.”

Handler, a self-proclaimed political activist, posted a tweet about midterm elections, urging voters “to elect candidates that are not funded by the NRA” and “who won’t allow kids to go to school and get shot.”

It turns out that the NRA and the Republicans had nothing to do with it, as the Homicidal Maniac, one Nikolas Cruz, is a 19 year old who was expelled from the school for disciplinary reason.

Per Fox News’s Trace Gallagher, courtesy of thegatewaypundit.com

“We should also point out that we have scoured his social media footprint. We have mentioned this before, but he was clearly obsessed with guns because he was attached and followed all types of gun groups, as well as resistance groups — the Syrian resistance and Iraqi fighters. Remember, we said earlier that he was actually involved in a chat room discussion, YouTube chat room discussion online about the building of bombs.”

Of course Chelsea Handler was not the only high-profile Liberal to holler for gun control after this latest horrible mass murder. California Senator Kamal Harris had to open her big mouth about it, also…

Have you ever watched a mother, when their toddler bumps their head on a table, attempt to distract their child, by pretending to spank the table, while saying, “Bad Table”?

That, in a nutshell, is what Former President Barack Hussein Obama attempted to do by writing Executive Orders and what current Liberal Celebrities and Congressional Democrats are calling for, in an attempt to limit the Constitutional Right of American Citizens to own guns.

By creating new restrictions, instead of enforcing gun laws which are already in place, these clueless Liberal Celebrities and Democratic Politicians are shifting the blame from those who operate outside of the law to America and her citizens.

The Democrats’ quest for “Gun Control”, if successful, would only succeed in controlling law-abiding American Citizens, instead of punishing those who operate outside of our laws, such as the Mass Murderer Nikolas Cruz and the thugs who have turned Former President Obama’s “hometown” of Chicago and my hometown of Memphis into their own personal “Killing Fields”.

The leader of the bloody Russian Revolution, Vladimir Lenin, once wrote that

One man with a gun can control 100 without one.

If the Democrats had their way, we would live in a country under the oppression of restrictive gun laws, which would be modeled after those in Europe. And, as past events have plainly shown, those restrictive gun laws have allowed Islamic Terrorists and other murderous nut jobs to kill innocent people unchallenged, because none of those innocent people were allowed to carry a weapon with which to defend themselves.

In fact, in some cases, even the police officers, who first arrived on the scene, were unarmed, and had to call for additional forces, thus giving the perpetrators more time to murder and maim the innocent.

One of our Founding Fathers, Dr. Benjamin Franklin, once wrote,

Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both.

Like Dr. Franklin and the rest of those who have fought for our freedom, average Americans realize what Democrats do not.

The problem in stopping mass murders like yesterday’s from happening is not that there are not enough gun laws. The problem is the gun laws on the books are not properly enforced.

The dissolution of the Family Unit, the revolving door state of our Municipal Justice Systems, and, in the case of the Nikolas Cruz, the lack of recognition and treatment of the mentally ill and wannabe Terrorists, have a lot to do with the rise of these horrible massacres in America and the horrible violence which plagues cities like Chicago and Memphis.

What Liberals have never understood, in their continuous quest to take away the Second Amendment rights of average Americans is that we will never surrender our Constitutional Right to defend ourselves and our families from enemies foreign and domestic.

What part of the words quote “shall not be infringed” do you Liberals not understand?

Passing more restrictive gun laws is not the answer.

Criminals are called “outlaws” for a reason.

They will find a way to get guns. They do now.

This is a people problem. Not a gun problem.

After all, have you ever seen a gun pull its own trigger?

Why is a Military Parade Okay in 2014, “Militaristic” in 2018?

February 11, 2018

308A803900000578-0-image-a-19_1453668213671 (2)

There are some who’ve forgotten why we have a military. It’s not to promote war, it’s to be prepared for peace. – Ronald Reagan

On Sunday, April 13, 2014, The New York Daily News ran the following story…

Soldiers of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars stood Sunday with Sen. Chuck Schumer to call for a ticker-tape parade along the historic Canyon of Heroes in lower Manhattan.

Schumer (D-N.Y.) says the Big Apple should host a bells-and-whistles procession to honor vets of the two post-9/11 campaigns.

“With the war in Afghanistan winding down, now is the time to keep with longstanding American tradition and kick off a campaign for the first New York City welcome home parade for troops that served in Iraq and Afghanistan,” Schumer said, flanked by vets of several wars on Broadway at the Bowling Green bull statue.

“With the completion of the Afghanistan combat mission expected at the end of this year, and with Iraq’s official end far behind us, it’s time for New York to stake its claim and for the Department of Defense to join in planning this welcome home celebration.”

Schumer said he secured Mayor de Blasio’s blessing Saturday.

“The brave men and women who have selflessly served our nation with courage and skill in Iraq and Afghanistan deserve a recognition for their sacrifice,” de Blasio said. “I stand with Senator Schumer in his call for a parade to honor our veteran heroes, and New York City would be proud to host this important event.”

Ever since President Trump announced his wish to have a Military Parade to honor our Best and Brightest, Modern American Liberals have been freaking out like the millennials who are staging wakes when their favorite fast food restaurant closes.

Now, to be fair, they are not alone.

There are those on the other side of the political aisle who object to this idea as well, stating that it is something that one would see under an authoritarian regime, and that it would be more prudent to spend the costs of such a parade on bettering Veterans’ Benefits and improving the care that Veterans receive at VA Hospitals.

Taken at face value, these are legitimate points.

However, the President’s wish is not without precedent.

According to Smithsonianmag.org,

Military parades outside of holidays such as Veterans Day, the Fourth of July or Memorial Day aren’t typical in this country in recent decades, but there is a history of them.

These parades date back to the early days of our nation and continued through the 20th Century, at the end of Word War II, at President John F. Kennedy’s Inauguration, and, most recently, in 1991, when 8,000 troops marched down Constitution Avenue in Washington, DC, celebrating the end of the Persian Gulf War. The ceremony featured a fireworks show that evening, attended by 800,000 Americans.

As far as the objections being brought by the Far Left-controlled Democratic Party…

wanted to use their money to further his socialization of America, Obama placed our Armed Forces in an untenable situation.

Distinguished American Veteran, Former United States Representative Lt. Col. Allen B. West once wrote the following, concerning Obama’s treatment of our Armed Forces:

Barack Hussein Obama cannot be seen as a Commander-in-Chief and I will never refer to him that way. His fundamental transformation of America means weakening our nation and leaving our Republic less secure. I can just imagine how appreciative and elated his Muslim Brotherhood friends are at this point, to include Turkey’s President Erdogan, as well as the mad mullahs in Iran.

Spot on.

I remember my ex-brother-in-law, Dave. My late step-sister met him at the USO in Memphis during the Vietnam War. David was a Polish Catholic from outside of Detroit, a Navy guy who received his training in the computers of the day, while in service to our country. When he got out, they got married and moved to Dearborn (now Dearbornistan), Michigan, where he got a job with Burroughs. I remember Dave, because he was always good to me, even though I was just a runt kid, 15 years younger than him. I remember him cleaning his service rifle, sitting on the living room floor of our house, and, making sure it was empty, allowing me to to hold it. At the time, I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever done.

I also remember John. John was a friend of my sister’s, who stayed with us, because of problems at home. As I have related before, my folks were the ones whom all my sister’s friends would talk to when they had trouble at home.

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

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

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

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

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

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

We suffered for 8 long years under a president who spoke like a wuss and carried a feather pillow, a Mexican Flag, and a prayer rug.

And, you wonder why our Best and Brightest always erupt appreciation for their Present Commander-in-Chief, Donald J. Trump?

They are simply happy that they once again have a Commander-in-Chief who appreciates them. And, one who actually has their back for a change.

While Barack Hussein Obama was our Armed Forces Commander in-Chief (Thank God, he isn’t any more), the responsibility for everything that happened to the men and women serving in our armed forces, in which some part of our federal government is involved, both during and after their service, fell on his shoulders and his alone.

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

Distinguished American Veteran, Former United States Representative Lt. Col. Allen B. West once wrote the following, concerning Obama’s treatment of our Armed Forces:

Barack Hussein Obama cannot be seen as a Commander-in-Chief and I will never refer to him that way. His fundamental transformation of America means weakening our nation and leaving our Republic less secure. I can just imagine how appreciative and elated his Muslim Brotherhood friends are at this point, to include Turkey’s President Erdogan, as well as the mad mullahs in Iran.

Spot on.

I remember my ex-brother-in-law, Dave. My late step-sister met him at the USO in Memphis during the Vietnam War. David was a Polish Catholic from outside of Detroit, a Navy guy who received his training in the computers of the day, while in service to our country. When he got out, they got married and moved to Dearborn (now Dearbornistan), Michigan, where he got a job with Burroughs. I remember Dave, because he was always good to me, even though I was just a runt kid, 15 years younger than him. I remember him cleaning his service rifle, sitting on the living room floor of our house, and, making sure it was empty, allowing me to hold it. At the time, I thought that was the coolest thing I had ever done.

I also remember John. John was a friend of my sister’s, who stayed with us, because of problems at home. My parents were the ones whom all my sister’s friends would talk to when they had trouble at home. John was great guy, as well, who wound up enlisting and serving in that “crazy Asian War”, as Kenny Rogers and the late Mel Tillis once referred to it in song.

As Americans, we should show them that we have their backs, as well.

While a small token at best, the parade which President Trump has proposed would be a step in that direction.

A Day For Truth: FISA Memo to be Released Today. – A KJ Analysis

February 1, 2018

untitled (188)

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

The House Intelligence Committee on Wednesday released a 51-page unclassified transcript of the contentious meeting this week between Republicans and Democrats, during which members voted to publicly release the classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The transcript shows Democrats strongly objecting to the release, accusing Republicans of producing the memo to benefit President Donald Trump.

The motion to release the memo passed on a party-line basis. On Tuesday night, Trump, who has the ability to stop the memo’s release, was overheard telling a GOP lawmaker at the State of the Union that he’s “100 percent” supportive of the document’s release — although it hasn’t happened yet.

“I want to begin by expressing my alarm at where we are in this committee,” California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the panel, said in the meeting. “I have served on the committee for 10 years now. This is the first time we have sought to declassify highly sensitive information for a political reason. It is, I think, a terrible line to cross.”

The transcript release followed the FBI saying Wednesday that the bureau had “grave concerns” about releasing the classified memo.

 “With regard to the House Intelligence Committee’s memorandum, the FBI was provided a limited opportunity to review this memo the day before the committee voted to release it,” said the FBI statement. “As expressed during our initial review, we have grave concerns about material omissions of fact that fundamentally impact the memo’s accuracy.”

Five career officials from the FBI came to see White House Chief of Staff John Kelly late Tuesday afternoon to view an amended version of the memo — the product of a review by the White House, according to a senior administration official.

Fox News also has learned FBI Director Christopher Wray had 90 minutes with the four-page memo during his rare Sunday trip to Capitol Hill where he was joined by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes, R-Calif., and Rep. Trey Gowdy, R-S.C. 

“Having stonewalled Congress’ demands for information for nearly a year, it’s no surprise to see the FBI and DOJ issue spurious objections to allowing the American people to see information related to surveillance abuses at these agencies,” Nunes said Wednesday.

According to the transcript of the fractious meeting, Democratic Rep. Mike Quigley of Illinois pressed Nunes on whether he had coordinated  with the White House in crafting the memo for the public to see.

“When you, as the majority, conceived of doing this memo for release to the body and to the public, the preparation, the thought of doing it, the consultation of it, was any of this done after/during conversations or consultations with anyone in the White House?” Quigley asked.

Nunes replied, “I would just answer, as far as I know, no.”

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to accounts of KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

During Monday’s meeting, the GOP-majority committee voted against releasing a countering memo written by Democrats.

Of course the FBI does not want it to be made public today.

It will expose the FBI Hierarchy’s abuse of their positions and their attempt to interfere with the 2016 Presidential Election and the Presidency of Donald J. Trump.

The Democratic Elite do not want it to be released either…for the same reasons.

As Rush Limbaugh said on his program on Tuesday…

It’s not a memo. It is a four-page report. It’s a summary of what the House Intelligence Committee has learned in its investigation of Trump colluding with Russia. Trey Gowdy, in numerous TV appearances yesterday and today has told us what’s in this memo. We’ve also learned that there’s some additional things like Rod Rosenstein may be prominently featured in this memo. You know why? And this is fascinating.

I’m getting a little bit ahead of the game here. Folks, it’s just a summary. Essentially, it’s the Republicans in the House Intelligence Committee getting sick and tired of waiting because there hasn’t been any evidence produced whatsoever on the original claim. It’s been over a year. There’s no sign the special counsel’s winding down at all, and so the Republicans, “Well, let me tell you why they haven’t found anything,” and they’re gonna lay out the evidence of how this whole thing is tainted.

That’s the purpose of it. That’s why the Democrats are panicked. And so Pencil Neck Adam Schiff has decided to write his own memo to refute the “Dennis” Nunes memo. Devin Nunes, I know. I just can’t help mocking Pelosi, folks. I’m sorry. Now, the Democrats are panicked because the Nunes memo is going to tell everybody in America who has exposure to it what you and I already know.

See, folks, we live in a bifurcated culture, and the people that read the New York Times do not know who Fusion GPS is. The people that read the New York Times and watch CNN do not know that Hillary Clinton paid for the Trump dossier to be written. They don’t know this because that hasn’t been reported.

The Democrat side of things has been able to bottle up everything you and I know about what could be called malfeasance, partisanship, and any other number of things that you would define as attacks on Trump and attempts to ruin his presidency, before that to ruin his campaign, and then after that, to try to ruin his transition.

…The Democrats have grand designs of winning back the House and even the Senate this year and then impeaching and convicting Donald Trump. And the memo that is about to be released is going to put a big dent in those plans.

As I have stated before, what has been playing out since being set in motion by the previous Presidential Administration, is nothing less than, as Radio Host Mark Levin has referred to it, a “silent coup”…a way to usurp our Constitution and the System of Checks and Balances which our Founding Fathers put in place to maintain and prosper our Constitutional Republic.

The last two years have seemed surreal to me.

The lengths which the Democrats and their Financial Backer, the Puppet Master himself, George Soros, have gone to in order to try to keep Trump from winning the Presidency and then, to keep him from “Making America Great Again” through civil violence, lies, innuendos, threats, and even Twitter Bots, has been something that I have never seen before in my 59 years.

And now, today, we are going to be exposed to information that those who have been charged to protect American Citizens, instead, attempted to “frame” a private citizen who beat a bunch of Professional Politicians to win the 2016 Presidential Election.

The Deep State Operatives, like the Democrats themselves who sat on their hands during the State of the Union Address, have been blinded by their hatred for Trump to the point where his defeat and banishment from the Oval Office means more to them than love of country and the welfare of the American Citizenry.

Also, as I have written before, I am quite aware that J. Edgar Hoover had files on politicians and celebrities, which he used as “leverage” to keep his job and to hide his kinky proclivities.

But even J. Edgar Hoover never took his vendettas this far.

This whole bloody mess is a result of a Democratic Administration and the zealots in the FBI and other Alphabet Agencies, who became Deep State Operatives in defense of the Washingtonian Status Quo which they had become an integral part of under the Obama Administration.

“Absolute power corrupts absolutely” and these individuals who had obtained levels of importance within the Federal Government took it upon themselves to choose whom they thought would be the best choice for the next president of the United States, and it wasn’t Donald J. Trump.

They did not care whom Average Americans living in America’s Heartland wanted….simply because they “knew what was best for us”.

If, as a Sovereign Nation, we are to rid ourselves of the Machiavellian plans and schemes of a political ideology which seeks to overrule the will of the people through the use of Machiavellian schemes and plans acted on by Deep State Operatives within our own government, ALL PERTINENT INFORMATION MUST BE MADE PUBLIC.

Today , if things go as expected with be a Historically important day in the life of our country.

Today will not be a “political” day.

It will be a day for TRUTH.

It will be the day when American turns the light on the cockroaches infesting the dark, dank cellars of our Federal Government…and we watch them run for cover.

Trump Delivers “Yuge” SOTU Address: “Together, We are Rediscovering the American Way”

January 31, 2018

2018-state-union-address

“We want every American to know the dignity of a hard day’s work; we want every child to be safe in their home at night, and we want every citizen to be proud of this land that we love.” – President Donald J. Trump – 2017 State of the Union Address

Last night, as my bride and I arrived home from our Tuesday Night Church Small Group Fellowship, we immediately turned on Fox News to watch the 45th President of the United States of America deliver his State of the Union Address.

FoxNews.com posted the following summary of the address…

President Trump kicked off his first State of the Union address to Congress on Tuesday night by calling on lawmakers of both parties to “set aside our differences” in the combative political environment and work together in “unity.”

“Tonight, I call upon all of us to set aside our differences, to seek out common ground, and to summon the unity we need to deliver for the people we were elected to serve,” the president said.

The president used his hour-long speech to extend an olive branch to his critics and signal a willingness to make bipartisan deals on second-year-agenda priorities like immigration and infrastructure.

“We all share the same home, the same heart, the same destiny, and the same great American flag,” he said. “Together, we are rediscovering the American way.”

He began his speech by praising heroes during natural disasters and tragedies over the last year, including during the summer shooting of Republican lawmakers at a baseball practice.

“With us tonight is one of the toughest people ever to serve in this House — a guy who took a bullet, almost died, and was back to work three and a half months later: the legend from Louisiana, Congressman Steve Scalise,” Trump said.

Like other presidents before him, Trump used the address to tout first-year accomplishments like “massive tax cuts,” regulation rollbacks, the elimination of ObamaCare’s individual mandate and more.

“This is our new American moment,” Trump said. “There has never been a better time to start living the American dream.”

Trump also seemed to criticize the protests by NFL football players who have been kneeling during the national anthem as a protest against police shootings of African-Americans.

He praised Preston Sharp, a 12-year-old boy from California, who started a movement to place flags at the graves of fallen service members.

“Preston’s reverence for those who have served our nation reminds us why we salute our flag, why we put our hands on our hearts for the pledge of allegiance, and why we proudly stand for the national anthem,” he said.

On immigration, the White House is pushing a plan to broaden eligibility for the DACA program – which gives a reprieve to illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children, and which Trump is planning to end absent a legislative solution – in exchange for border wall funding and other big changes. The negotiations could be critical for talks to keep the government running past a Feb. 8 deadline.

The president extended an “open hand” to members of both parties to “protect our citizens, of every background, color, and creed,” in an apparent reference to DACA and immigration talks.

Further, he calls for bipartisan cooperation on infrastructure: “America is a nation of builders. We built the Empire State Building in just 1 year — is it not a disgrace that it can now take 10 years just to get a permit approved for a simple road?”

President Trump went on to speak about other subjects, such as Religious Liberty and South Korea.

When I sat down to write this post last night, I first read Politico.com’s summary of the SOTU. What they wrote was nothing like what I watched on my television last night.

They said that President Trump delivered what was supposed to be an optimistic speech in a voice filled with sadness and anger.

Funny. That’s not what I saw.

I saw an American President doing what he does best: speaking in clear, concise tones, expressing optimism, a genuine concern for and love of America and its Citizens.

While on the outside , Trump remains the bombastic American Businessman and Citizen Statesman that average Americans grew to love during the campaign, on the inside, he is a thoughtful compassionate leader who cares very deeply about the American people and those who are protecting us from our enemies, giving up their very lives in order to secure our American Freedom.

Unlike Obama, Trump does not view our Brightest and Best as Lab Rats to be used in Social Experimentation. He views them as our sons and daughter to be respected, honored, cherished, and solemnly and respectfully honored and remembered when they give their lives for a flag which some think nothing of defiling.

President Trump was at his best last night, presenting American Heroes and one very special South Korean Hero, who escaped from the North and who is now fighting to free his people from the ruthless dictatorship of Kim Jong Un.

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

He referenced the God of Abraham, Our Creator, several times, even reminded those in the Chamber with him “In God We Trust”.

Unlike Obama, he did not make the speech all about him.

He made a point of saying that when we are together as a nation, we can do ANYTHING.

He spoke in glowing positive terms about America and its people.

He acknowledged those who protect us: The Men and Women in Blue and our Brightest and best.

He pledged to end the VISA Lottery System and Chain Migration in order to keep America safe from those who wish us harm.

He reminded those in the Chamber that “Americans are Dreamers, too”.

He told us average “forgotten” Americans that we will be able to keep more of our paychecks and THAT WE MATTER.

He mentioned that unemployment is down and that Black and Hispanic Unemployment are at record lows.

He emphatically stated that because of the sacrifices made for us by those who have died while protecting our freedom, we stand and put our hand over our hearts for the National Anthem.

And while President Trump was making this stirring speech, where were the Democrats?

Sitting on their hands and appearing as if their dog had been run over by a Steamroller.

Last night proved two things:

Americans made the right choice on November 8, 2016.

And, the Democratic Party stands for nothing…except hating President Donald J. Trump and Traditional American Values

…including Patriotism.

FISA Memo Released By Congress. Dems and MSM Blaming Everyone But the Guilty.

January 30, 2018

The best-laid schemes of mice and men oft’ times go awry. – Robert Burns

FoxNews.com reported yesterday that

The House Intelligence Committee on Monday evening voted to release a classified memo circulating in Congress that purportedly reveals government surveillance abuses.

The vote was announced to reporters by California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the committee, who called it a “very sad day, I think, in the history of this committee.” The motion passed on a party-line basis, he said.

President Trump now has five days to decide whether he has any objections before the memo can be publicly released.

Last week, a top Justice Department official urged House Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes not to release the memo, saying it would be “extraordinarily reckless” and could harm national security and ongoing investigations.

The four-page memo has being described by GOP lawmakers as “shocking,” “troubling” and “alarming,” with one congressman likening the details to KGB activity in Russia.

Those who have seen the document suggest it reveals what role the unverified anti-Trump “dossier” played in the application for a surveillance warrant on at least one Trump associate.

Schiff said the GOP-majority committee also voted against releasing a counter memo written by Democrats.

“Today this committee voted to put the president’s personal interests, perhaps their own political interests, above the national interests,” the Democrat said.

Another Democratic member, Mike Quiqley of Illinois, described the GOP memo as “a book report by a high school kid at 1 a.m. on two Red Bulls who hasn’t read the book.”

“It’s a contravention of the facts,” he added. “Today was a demonstration that there are no more rules.”

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in a statement that the committee’s Republicans had “crossed from dangerous irresponsibility and disregard for our national security into the realm of cover up” and “disregarded the warnings of the Justice Department and the FBI.”

“Chairman Nunes’ memo contains significant inaccuracies and omissions that misrepresent the underlying intelligence and jeopardize the effectiveness of our intelligence and law enforcement communities,” Pelosi added.

The vote came the same day that it was reported that FBI official Andrew McCabe has left his post as deputy director.

The White House seems to favor the memo’s release, but wouldn’t explicitly say whether the president will back the effort.

“We want full transparency,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Monday. “That’s what we have said all along.”

Sanders said they were letting the process play out before officially weighing in.

On Sunday, FBI Director Christopher Wray went to the Capitol to view the four-page memo, sources told Fox News.

According to one source, Wray was asked to point out inaccuracies or other issues with the wording — and said he would need “his people to take a look at it.” The source said the review is ongoing.

South Carolina GOP Rep. Trey Gowdy, who helped write the four-page memo, said Sunday he wants it made public.

He also suggested the memo indeed addresses whether the FBI relied at least in part on the dossier — paid for partially by Democrats and the Clinton campaign during the 2016 presidential election — to apply to a secret federal court to get a surveillance warrant, purportedly on then-Trump adviser Carter Page.

“If you … want to know whether or not the dossier was used in court proceedings, whether or not it was vetted before it was used. … If you are interested in who paid for the dossier … then, yes, you’ll want the memo to come out,” Gowdy told “Fox News Sunday.”

The dossier was compiled by former British intelligence officer Christopher Steele and contained opposition research on Trump during the 2016 presidential campaign. Steele was hired by the U.S. firm Fusion GPS, which commissioned the research with funding from the Democratic National Committee and the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. At the same time, the firm was allegedly doing work to help the Russian government fight sanctions.

Requests for surveillance warrants are made through the U.S. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court, also known as the FISA court, and target suspected foreign spies inside the United States.

Responding to reports the U.S. extended surveillance on him last spring, Carter Page told Fox News that U.S.-Russia relations have been “dominated by misunderstandings throughout much of the past 70 years, since the original McCarthy era. I harbor no ill will towards anyone for past xenophobic biases and only hope that justice is eventually served.”

For those of us who are news /political junkies, the past couple of years have been positively amazing.

America has witnessed the rise of an American Businessman/Entrepreneur/Television Star, whom none of the “Political Pundits”, both amateur and professional, gave a snowball’s chance in July, become President of the United States of America..

And, when the “impossible” happened on November 8, 2016, it turned the world of these pundits and that of the Democratic Party, the Main Stream Media, Internet Trolls, and the rest of Modern American Liberals topsy-turvy.

When it was happening, I always wondered why the Democratic Party was not more worried about Donald J. Trump than they were, since it was obvious to anyone who did not live on the East or Left Coast that the Democrats’ Presidential Candidate, Hillary Clinton, was a lousy choice.

Now, like you, gentle readers, I have come to realize that the Democrats were not overly worried that Trump would defeat the Queen of Mean because they knew that the fix was in.

They knew that Deep State Operatives, working within the Department of Justice and the FBI, were working behind the scenes to make sure that Trump would not win the election and become our 45th President.

Thank God they underestimated average Americans and our desire to end the National Nightmare of the previous 8 years under the Obama Administration’s failed policies, foreign and domestic.

Once Trump got in, the fake Russian Collusion Narrative was presented to the MSM, the Democrat’s Propaganda Arm, who repeated it morning, noon, and night, especially after Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed to “investigate” the Trump Campaign.

If you seriously look at the intricacy and all of the moving parts involved in floating this false narrative, it is both impressive…and chilling.

It is also treasonous.

Which explains the reaction of those who have seen the 4-page FISA Memo, including FBI Director Christopher Wray, who told Andrew McCabe to go ahead and “retire” and not to let the screen door hit him where the Good Lord split him.

The reaction of Democrats and the Main Stream Media (but, I repeat myself) has been no less harsh.

The Congressional Democrats threatened to write their own memo and release it, abruptly deep-sixing that idea when they realized the severity of the situation they now face.

Instead, both them and the Liberal Political Pundits on television and Twitter are reacting like schoolyard bullies and Internet Trolls do when someone fights back.

They are whining and crying incessantly, blaming everything on Trump. Or, like Schiff, they are blaming average Americans for not realizing that we are too ignorant to understand all of this “high level secret information”.

To illustrate what they are sounding like, please allow me to share a story in closing that a friend posted on Facebook the other day…

A policeman is driving in a neighborhood one day when he sees a little boy sitting in a little red wagon, being pulled by a cat which has a rope tied around its…err…privates. The policeman gets out of his car and asks the little boy,

“Hey, sport! Why don’t you have your rope tied around that cat’s neck? You may be able to go faster.”

The little boy looks up at the officer and replies,

“Yes. sir. But, then I wouldn’t have a siren.”

The Deep State Operatives in the DOJ and the FBI, the Democrat Leadership, and the Main Stream Media are the cat.

Trump is the little boy.

Trump Wins the Government Shutdown. Why Did the Dems Fold? – A KJ Analysis

January 23, 2018

dems-deal-gov-shutdown

“The Democrats are now executing pages in their playbook that they’ve executed countless times before. Original technique, original strategies? There aren’t any anymore. The Democrats have become the most predictable group that we have.” – Rush Limbaugh, 1/22/2018

FoxNews.com reports that

The Senate on Monday voted 81-18 to break a Democratic filibuster on a stalled government spending bill, clearing the way for Congress to approve the stopgap measure and end the three-day government shutdown.

Democrats effectively backed off their opposition, after being given assurances from majority Republicans.

Before the vote, Senate Minority Leader Sen. Chuck Schumer made clear that Senate Democrats would supply the GOP-controlled Senate with the votes needed, but only in exchange for “fair” and immediate efforts to consider legislation that would protect illegal immigrants brought to the United States as children.

“We will vote today to reopen the government,” Schumer, a New York Democrat, said on the Senate floor. “In a few hours, the government will reopen.”

The 100-member, Republican-controlled chamber will now need only a simple majority to pass the temporary spending bill that would keep the government open until Feb. 8. The House would then have to approve the bill, sending it to President Trump’s desk.

The funding and reopening of the government would allow U.S. military personnel to be paid, end the furlough of nearly 1 million federal workers and resume all federal services and operations.

But congressional lawmakers made clear after the test vote that they’re still faced with challenges, like how to fund hurricane disaster relief and craft a comprehensive immigration reform bill on which both parties can agree.

“We still have a lot more work to do,” said Sen. Joni Ernst, R-Iowa.

After days and weeks of blaming and finger-pointing, a bipartisan group of senators met Sunday and brokered a deal in which rank-and-file members would provide the 60 votes in exchange for Senate leaders’ promise to immediately proceed to immigration reform.

Democrats largely opposed the stopgap spending bill because it did not include provisions to protect the illegal immigrants from deportation under former President Barack Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals executive order.

President Trump last year set a deadline of early March to end the protections. The president has indicated that he wants to provide permanent protections for the young illegal immigrants but has insisted that border security, particularly funding for his U.S.-Mexico border wall, be included in any such deal.

Under the apparent deal to end the filibuster, Schumer said Monday they would negotiate on immigration, and immediately consider such legislation if there’s no agreement by Feb. 8.

Schumer lauded the bipartisan group’s weekend efforts and suggested the group could lead efforts to replace DACA with permanent, legislative protections.

However, he also needled Trump, whom he said on Friday rejected his compromise plan that included money for the border wall.

“Today we enter the third day of the Trump shutdown,” Schumer said before saying we would provide the votes to get to the spending bill. Republicans call it the “Schumer Shutdown.”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., then thanked Schumer and said: “I think if we’ve learned anything during this process, it’s that a strategy to shut down the government over the issue of illegal immigration is something the American people didn’t understand and would not have understood in the future. So I’m glad we’ve gotten past that.”

With Republicans having just 50 senators available to vote Monday, they needed the support of roughly a dozen Democratic senators to break the filibuster. They got 33, according to the Associated Press.

The 18 senators who didn’t vote to end debate included Republican Sens. Mike Lee, of Utah, and Rand Paul, of Kentucky.

The 15 Democrats in opposition were Sen. Richard Blumenthal and Chris Murphy, both of Connecticut; Cory Booker and Bob Menendez, both of New Jersey; Catherine Cortez Masto, of Nevada; Kirsten Gillibrand, of New York; Mazie Hirono, of Hawaii; Patrick Leahy, of Vermont; Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, both of Massachusetts; Jon Tester, of Montana, Ron Wyden and Jeff Merkley, both of Oregon; and Kamala Harris and Dianne Feinstein, both of California. Sen. Bernie Sanders, a Vermont independent, also voted in opposition.

Arizona GOP Sen. John McCain did not vote because he’s home fighting cancer.

McConnell on Sunday night indicated a deal was in the works to break the filibuster, in exchange for immediately addressing Democrats’ desire for immigration reform.

“When the Democrat filibuster of the government funding bill ends, the serious, bipartisan negotiations that have been going on for months now to resolve our unfinished business — military spending; disaster relief; health care; immigration and border security — will continue,” he said Sunday in announcing the Monday vote.

“It would be my intention to resolve these issues as quickly as possible … Importantly, when I proceed to the immigration debate, it will have an amendment process that is fair to all sides. But the first step in any of this is re-opening the government and preventing any further delay.”

Early Monday, before the vote, the Trump White House and Capitol Hill Republicans cranked up the pressure on Democrats to abandon their immediate demands for immigration measures and vote in support of the temporary spending bill.

“They shut down the government,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway told “Fox & Friends” on Monday morning. “The pressure is on them.”

President Trump tweeted that Democrats shut down the government to appease the “far left base” and are now “powerless” to change course.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955428815777533952

“The Democrats are turning down services and security for citizens in favor of services and security for non-citizens. Not good!” he tweeted.

https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/955426609326100480

The vote Monday was the GOP-controlled Senate’s second attempt to break the filibuster, after failing to get the required 60 votes Friday. The Friday night vote was 50-49.

So, gentle readers…why did Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Far Left butt-kissing Democrats surrender to President Donald J. Trump and the Republicans?

Of course, you will never hear the word “surrender ” in the Main Stream Media’s accounts of the end of Schumer’s Shutdown, but, that is exactly what happened.

Conservative Political Pundits, including the Maha Rushie himself, stated that the shutdown was cooked up by the Democrats in order to distract from Trump’s Economic Boom, which shows no signs of slowing down any time soon.

This being the case, the Democrats certainly could not admit to it, so, they conjured up a never-ending fountain of crocodile tears for the plight of the “poor Dreamers”, adults who came here illegally as children and have done nothing since then to become legal.

In other words, gentle readers, Dreamers want all of the privilege of being an American Citizen with no personal responsibility attached.

So, with an excuse for shutting down the government fabricated, Chucky and his merry band of Marxists fulfilled their Vision Quest and shut down OUR Federal Government in the name of lawbreakers who should have never been here in the first place.

Brilliant plan, right?

Au contraire, mon frere.

Republicans started getting the attention of average Americans by focusing on the fact that the hard-earned paychecks of our Brightest and Best would not be delivered because of the Democrats placing the welfare of illegal immigrants over that of the sons and daughters of average American Citizens who are serving our country.

There is an old adage in show business stating that if you write a play for the theater or a screenplay for a Hollywood Movie, you had better make sure before you sink money into it that it will “play well in Peoria”, meaning that average Americans would like it and support it.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, and amusingly for the rest of us, the cause du jour which they staked their shutdown on, did NOT “play well in Peoria”.

Judging by how quickly the Dems folded, their internal polling numbers must have resembled the average I.Q. of those kids out there taking the Tide Pod Challenge.

Another factor which went against the Dems’ chance for a victorious outcome to their shutdown, was the fact that we have a sitting American President who is not a professional politician, but rather, a “Citizen Statesman”, who is an expert in negotiation.

He may negotiate…but Trump NEVER backs down.

The last factor which I believe has something to do with the Dems ending the Shutdown, is the fact that Chucky and the Democrats are watching a Political Tsunami building size and momentum offshore, which is heading straight for them, in the form of an investigation into the Deep State Operation against the candidacy of Donald J. Trump, which has been dubbed “Obamagate”.

With a “shocking” 4-page memo detailing covert and treasonous activity designed to usurp the will of the people by the Obama Administration about to be released, Chuck Schumer and the rest of the Democrat Hierarchy realized that they were in an untenable position.

They had to “stop the bleeding” before they “bled out”.

Gentle readers, I cannot remember a time when the Republicans came out on the winning side of a Government Shutdown.

But then again, this is the first time in what seems like forever that they were following the lead of an American President who refused to back down.

Until He Comes,
