There apparently really was collusion in the Presidential campaign. It was just not between Trump and Russia. First, it was between Democrat National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz and the Clinton campaign to make sure no one but Hillary Clinton could secure the Democrat nomination for President,making sure Bernie Sanders in particular had no path to victory no matter how many votes he won. Second, after Hillary secured the nomination, US Attorney General Loretta Lynch apparently gave assurances to Schultz to investigation into Hillary would not be allowed to go far enough to derail her campaign to win the White House. Plenty of collusion occurred, just not by Trump or the GOP and the Ruskies.

The saddest aspect of the Obamacare replacement debate is that only a handful of Republicans in the US House and three conservatives and one libertarian conservative in the US Senate do not take it that healthcare is a (new) entitlement. President Trump apparently believes healthcare is a universal right. In this aspect, the GOP mainstream and Democrats are in almost complete accord and we as a nation are careening toward single payer healthcare that will render America a socialist country and give our government sweepingly intrusive power. The government will soon have even more say over what we eat, drink, smoke, and drive. The government will have the ability to lavish care on favorites and deny care to dissidents. Universal care will be a lever to push more gun control. Single payer government rationed healthcare is the gateway to tyranny.

John F Kennedy, who was an ardent anti-Communist and a tax-cutter, would not recognize the Democrat Party of today. Today's Democrat leaders are darn near Communists. What differentiates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren from Marxists? The shift to the hard Left is not winning the Democrats many elections.

Rockefeller Republicans took a pounding back in the day when they campaigned as Democrat-lite. The voters realized they need not vote for Democrat-lite when they could elect real Democrats like Jimmy Carter. I think one thing Donald Trump has taught is no matter how you are going to govern, try to sound like Ronald Reagan when pursuing election to office. Mimic Reagan and sound conservative (whether or not you really are) is a lesson GOP candidates have learned, and it is winning them elections.

Last night, the Democrats lost two more special elections, bringing their total in special elections since Trump won the Presidency to zero wins in five attempts. I do not think that as a national party the Democrats realize hating the President is not the strategy to regain power.

There is no question in my mind that the brutal dictator of North Korea will try to destroy America the moment his slave state develops the capacity to do so. This possibility is intolerable. The US must preempt any aggressive action by Pyongyang, and ultimately must eliminate the despotic regime, with or without the consent of Red China.

Some on the Left are less than sincere in expressing sadness over the attempted murder of Republican leaders. Leftists are still cheering the murder of our President in a play staged in New York. Leftists will still riot over conservatives being invited to speak at their universities. The Left is not tolerant and not open to hear what the other side has to say.

Leaders on the Right in America have never accused their opponents of doing the things the Left is accusing. What did the Left expect when they accuse Trump and the GOP of attacking the very existence of humanity and even Earth itself by leaving the Paris Climate Accords that really were only an arrow aimed at the heart of our free markets and productive industries?

If you say Republicans want to take health care from people, foul the air and water with unchecked pollution, starve children, start wars for oil, and terminate the elderly long enough, some nut is going to take what you say to heart and try to harm GOP politicians. I have no idea of the motivation of the baseball practice shooter who attacked Republican leaders, but all the hate the Left is ginning up with lies could have been a factor.

To hear the establishment tell it, the President should welcome the Mueller investigation if he has committed no crime. They are being disingenuous because they know an investigation with so much power and so many resources is able to produce so-called "process crimes".
Sunday, June 11, 2017
It seems James Comey was trying to trip our President up enough to make a special prosecutor necessary. Instead of rewarding Comey with the Robert Mueller investigation, the genie should be shoved back in the bottle and Mueller should be relieved of investigative authority. Has a Special Counsel or Special Prosecutor ever been rescinded? If not, it should happen now.

I used to love watching NBA games. After hearing some players and notably some coaches spouting off about President Trump and our country, you could not pay me to sit through a game. I have turned off ESPN on TV and rarely visit their website because ESPN has become obnoxiously leftist. I am glad Colin "Kneeler" has not found an NFL roster and hope he never does.

If you admit thousands of men of military age as "refugees" into your country, some of them may very well be jihadists already and others may be open to persuasion to embark on the path of jihad. If you accept so-called "refugees" from countries that are terror hotbeds (including countries so riven with strife that thorough vetting is impossible), you are putting your citizenry at risk. If you permit imams to radicalize their flocks or to preach hate from their pulpits, you are making yourself less safe. This dangerous road is the chosen route of Western Europeans led by Merkel.

When you have a religion with a couple of billion adherents, if just ten percent of them back violent means of spreading their faith, you find yourself being targeted by two hundred million fanatics. These fanatics proclaim "they love death more than the infidel loves life" and really mean it. As we saw in London last night, this is a perilous situation. I fear unless Muslims who do not want bloodshed remove the violent jihadists themselves, we really will find the world in a religious war that will kill more than any war heretofore fought in human history.

Just because Memorial Day is over, it is never alright to forget or ignore the sacrifices that have been made and are ongoing to secure and vouchsafe our liberty.

I hate to tell you, but we have been living under the threat of jihadi terror since the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993. The subsequent and more deadly attacks are just a continuation of a pattern we will have to contend with until we defeat violent Islamism.
Wednesday, May 24, 2017
The Imperial Japanese and the Nazis were defeated in World War II. It took a total effort at he war front and on the home front. That same level of commitment is going to be necessary to vanquish Islamism. All the candle lightings and group hugs in the world will not defeat jihad. Hard men doing hard things will be required to win. Those things will not be pretty and innocents inevitably will die, but that is the nature of war.

Blowing up a bunch of young people including children, who were simply out enjoying a night of music, solves nothing and is truly evil.

The Leftist propagandists that comprise the mainstream press are doing all that they can to bring down the President. Do you think FDR might have shared classified information with Stalin that was beneficial in stopping Hitler? Trump, who as President has the power and right to declassify, has done precisely the same by sharing intelligence with Putin to help in the fight against the Islamic State. There is no crime here and no scandal!

There was no collusion between Donald Trump and Russia to secure the US Presidency. The Russians did not cast or count any votes. None of that matters though as there is a feeding frenzy in the press and within the establishment that maybe they can remove a candidate who ran successfully as anti-establishment for the nation's highest office. It will only take a handful of spineless Republicans to join the vicious Democrats to see a duly elected President impeached without any real justification.

When the FBI Director becomes the story something has gone wrong. Prior to Comey,if Americans could name a FBI leader at all, that would have been J. Edgar Hoover. Whatever Comey did or did not do,Americans were learning Comey's name in the context that he allegedly manipulated the last Presidential election. Comey may be a wonderful and capable human being, but the FBL definitely needed a fresh start.

We may find out we elected another big government East Coast liberal. If Trump creates a single payer (government) health care system, he is little different than Hillary. If Trump sticks to the Paris Climate Accord, he is doing precisely what Hillary would have done. If Trump continues intervention in Syria, he is doing the neo-cons bidding, which is exactly what Hillary would have done. It looks like we must have elected Hillary.

France as we know her is more or less dead. The French police say there are not "no go zones". What they actually mean is that so long as they go in great force, police can still enter certain Muslim neighborhoods, not to patrol, you can not devote that much resource to simple policing, but to investigate a particular terror plot or make an arrest. Tourists are scared (justifiably) to visit a country where people are slaughtered in clubs and groceries or run over and killed by the dozen as they celebrate a public event near the beach. The French just rejected a politician who would have waged the fight necessary to protect them in favor of a politician who wants to "make nice" with Islamists and who, unlike the opponent he and the press and Merkel defeated, is willing to accept more "refugees". France might yet be rescued but only if the mentality of appeasement there is defeated by the realization that self-preservation hinges not on surrender but on resistance.
Sunday, May 7, 2017
I wonder how France will fare with an appeaser of Islamist fanaticism in power. Le Pen would have been bad for French Muslims and French Jews but would have saved traditional France and actually stood with Israel against terror. Macron will stand with the Palestinians and continue to try and placate the so-called "refugees" streaming into the moribund EU.

Donald Trump is little different on the Palestinian issue than any previous US President. Trump just met with Abbas and had kind words for the bloody-handed terrorist. I think there is almost no chance Trump will follow through on his campaign promise and move the US embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump can not pressure the Palestinians to make any concessions, because the Palestinians have no interest in compromise with Israel. They only want to obliterate the Jewish State. Consequently, all US pressure will fall on Israel to give in to Palestinian demands that only make more violence inevitable as the Palestinians are more than willing to accept Israel being chopped up in the stages plan that Arafat always wanted and that began with Israel's withdrawal from Gaza.

If you could live well on a couple thousand dollars in 1900 and on $20,000 a year in 1950, are we really better off today if we are pulling in six figures?

I do not know if war with North Korea can be forestalled. I do not even know if it is desirable. Everyday, North Korea edges closer to being able to inflict carnage on the American homeland with ICBMs and possibly nukes. So long as a madman runs North Korea, this development of potentially world ending weapons is intolerable.

Unfortunately, some of these transplants bring Leftist sympathies with them and vote for the same policies that are ruining their home states.

In the Nashville I grew up in, a lot of people did not even lock their doors. Then we started to grow into a big city. Marcia Trimble was abducted in the mid-1970s and all of a sudden everyone was locking their doors. Now that Nashville is a growing metropolis, we hear about home invasions on our local news telecasts. Locking your doors no longer seems enough.

Donald Trump has a rather mediocre record at this point, not because Democrats have opposed him, that was to be expected, but because the GOP establishment has not pushed forward much of what Trump wants. Trump has blamed the Freedom Caucus to an extent, but it is not these Republican conservatives who have tripped Trump up. It is the elite moderate/centrists in his own party who will not expend any political capital to move Trumpism forward, but quite a bit to dial Trump back.

I will not pretend to be an authority on hockey. I have been on skates twice in my life (once ice, the other roller, when I was a child). I have never even attended a hockey game. All that being said, I hope my hometown team defeats the teams from other towns as a pro championship for Nashville would be a first in any sport.
Friday, April 21, 2017
My hometown hockey team just swept the (formerly) mighty Blackhawks. This means nothing going into the next round of the playoffs. By entering the final tournament with the worst record, Nashville has assured itself visitor status in any (every) upcoming series in 2017. The Predators are a decent hockey team but the odds are still stacked against them.

Erdogan will win his dictatorial power referendum. The budding despot has characterized his opponents as "Nazis". He has called Western Europeans who would not give him free reign to manipulate Turkish expatriates on European soil "Nazis". He allowed a terror-supporting flotilla to sail from his shores to breach the Israel's self-preservation blockade of Gaza and when Israel had to use lethal force to protect Jews trying to stop the Mavi Marmara terror ship, Erdogan called the Jews the aggressors. Erdogan sometimes refuses to permit the US to wage the war on terror from US bases on Turkish soil. Erdogan would not let the US attack Saddam Hussein from those Turkish bases. Erdogan allowed the sale of oil by the Islamic State. Erdogan always denies Armenian genocide was perpetrated by Turks in the twentieth century. There is a real and dangerous tyrant that has smashed dissent against him about to assume even more power in Turkey.

We were caught in a two hour traffic jam on I-65 South in Bowling Green, Kentucky after a three car pileup.

A life flight helicopter landed on the highway to transport some of the casualties. I pray everyone survives from the crash.

More grotesque attacks against innocents have just been staged by fanatic Sunni jihadists. Attacking Christian worshippers has become routine in much of the Arab world. In fact, Christian life is being extinguished across the Arab world. There is not enough being done in the Christian West to protect Christians in the Arab and broader Muslim world. The civilized world must protect the lives of religious minorities everywhere.

I am having a hard time understanding how Syrians killed with Sarin are more dead than those murdered with gunfire or barrel bombs. No doubt Assad is what W (Bush) called an evil-doer, but I do not think we need to start World War III over less than a hundred dead Syrians when several hundred thousand others had already been butchered with barely a peep.

I lost my medical insurance coverage because of ObamaCare as my issuer stopped doing business in my home state. Before the insurance provider left Tennessee though, my premiums more than doubled, and I had a deductible instituted that I never faced before. To comply with the mandate, I found a policy with a company still doing business in Tennessee. It is prohibitively expensive, but ObamaCare remains the law of the land, and I will abide by it rather than face a fine. The GOP, including Trump, promised to repeal ObamaCare, but the Republicans to this point have not shown the ability to keep their word or govern.

ObamaCare is for many an unaffordable but mandated insurance plan, that still forces recipients to pay out of pocket for everything but one routine wellness visit a year. Yes, catastrophic care in many cases is indeed covered, but most people (thank goodness) never reach the level of sickness to surpass their deductible. ObamaCare is an expensive mess. It definitely needs to be repealed.

Take what you hear from "intelligence committees" with a grain of salt. Intelligence by its very nature involves subterfuge, concealment, and outright falsehood. I think obviously someone was listening in on Team Trump and disseminating what could hurt Trump to the press. I think the Democrat Adam Schiff is doing all he can to keep the heat on Trump and the light off Democrat dirty doings.

I am deeply disturbed that Ezekiel Emanuel, who is the father of the "complete lives system" death panels is being consulted by President Trump regarding the Trump Care/Ryan Care plan. I have heard the Independent Payment Advisory Board (death panels) remain in the proposed new plan, meeting with Doctor Death Emanuel seems to confirm this. Trump used to be pro-abortion, but now claims to be pro-life. If he is pro-life, Trump must make sure any Republican plan that becomes law does away with the death panels!

Those Islamists committed to jihad say "they love death, more than we love life". They really mean it. There was Islamist terror perpetrated in London today. Earlier, terror struck France. These fanatics really despise our freedom and our way of life and gladly kill and die to attack Western values.

The Democrat Party going after Judge Gorsuch is like the racist refusing a blood transfusion from a person of another race, even though the transfusion would save his life. Neil Gorsuch is clearly not a right-wing bomb thrower or anti-woman, yet that is how the DC Democrats are portraying him. Gorsuch gained unanimous approval of the Senate to become a Federal judge. Now, it looks like he will receive few if any Democrat votes in his confirmation to the US Supreme Court, which will force Republicans to implement the nuclear option, and will prove the Democrats offer nothing but "no", without any rational basis.

I have little to say today. I am disgusted by the Leftist politicians and the mainstream media. We are in an existential conflict with expansionist Islamists.

Have you ever noticed that when a Republican politician visits that the local press finds toothless, dirty-looking people who can not articulate an idea to interview as supporters of the GOP politician? Have you noticed the press spends as much or more airtime talking to the handful of protestors as they do giving GOP supporters who number in the thousands at these events time on TV? Have you noticed the press seeks out opponents of the GOP who are highly educated and polished speakers and lets them make their point, rather than the anarchic rabble that comprise most of the street protestors against Republicans, who could not score points against Republicans if you put them on mike the rest of their lives? Donald Trump visited Nashville to a groundswell of support but watching local Nashville media, you would think that most Tennesseans are against the President.

I do not think the majority of Trump voters want an ACA replacement that is as bad or worse than ObamaCare. It is a tragedy that what is on offer is ObamaCare with penalties paid to insurance companies rather than government if the plan holder becomes medically uninsured a portion of the year. Apparently, the death panel Independent Payment Advisory Board remains untouched in the Paul Ryan replacement bill. If Trump accepts this as a final ObamaCare substitute, he will not earn a second term and the Republicans may well lose both the US House and Senate.

California Congressional disgrace Maxine Waters was still giving credence this week to the Russian prostitutes urinating on Donald Trump's hotel bed story. Waters is still talking about impeaching the President, in spite of the facts that he has committed no high crimes or misdemeanors and that Republicans control both the House and Senate in the US Congress. Why do her constituents keep reelecting Waters? She has not even brought back the bacon to her voters who remain among the most impoverished in all of California. If you are going to make a laughing stock of yourself, the least you can do is throw enough walking around money to pull the majority of your voters out of poverty, but old Maxine hasn't.

The doormat Republicans who let Obama turn America socialist are putting up more resistance to the President of their own party than they ever did to his Democrat predecessor. Mitch McConnell is in no rush to do tax reform. Paul Ryan is introducing an ACA replacement plan that is little better than Obamacare. Republicans as a party do not do opposition very well when Democrats are in power, and the GOP is demonstrating today that they do not know how to govern.

International Women's Day was marked by a bunch of Marxists denouncing capitalism, a bunch of Jewish State haters criticizing Israel, and a bunch of masculine women, who have never heard of depilation. For all their attacks on Western values and culture, the marchers were strangely silent on female genital mutilation and honor killings. The marchers denounced a white Western "rape culture" that only exists in their heads but did not mention the rape epidemic the refugees have brought to Western Europe. I only wish someone had opened a manhole cover that all the marchers would have fallen down.

The hysterical anti-Trump establishment and their lying press arm are riling themselves up against President Trump like an Old West lynch mob, except instead of going after the criminal, they are trying to lynch the sheriff, the man trying to keep order, President Trump. Our President is facing a swarm of enemies in Washington and now needs the heartland to have his back.

Democrats and their mainstream media hacks (which are one in the same) are calling anyone who believes Obama bugged Trump "conspiracy theorists" and dismissing them (us) as nuts. I absolutely believe that forces from the Obama administration were hellbent on having Hillary win the Presidency and are doing all that they can to keep Trump from governing as President. Whether you call it a "deep state" effort or a "coup", anyone with eyes can see it happening. I do not know that Obama ordered anything, but those trying to take down Trump surely think they are doing Obama's bidding. Investigate Russian hacking, but Russian hacking is small change compared to the ongoing establishment and mainstream media coup against our new President.

Those Republicans who were and are working against Donald Trump are doing the bidding of the Left. Glenn Beck is among the worst of these useful idiots.

If Obama or his underlings bugged Trump, it must be ferreted out and prosecuted.

America and the world do not need a unifier. What we need is the triumph of good over evil. There is no equivocation here. There is no grey area. We could not unify with Nazis during World War II.

Donald Trump seems to be a socially-moderate, big spending Republican, a Rockefeller Republican on steroids, and the kind of GOP President you would think Democrats could and would want to work with to advance their expensive (to the taxpayer) agenda. The Democrats seem to have something else in mind. They seem hell-bent on ousting Trump. What they would gain by that is mystifying, because they would end up with Mike Pence as President, and he is more naturally conservative than Trump.

Donald Trump wants to rebuild America's infrastructure, just as Barack Obama said he wanted to do. The difference is that with Trump's plan, the roads, bridges, airports, and air traffic control network may actually be rebuilt, rather than just throwing a trillion dollars to unions to keep electing Democrats, which is essentially what Obama did.

Donald Trump will address Congress and the nation tonight. The President faces a hostile audience. Democrats hate him, including their press arm, which comprises the whole of the dinosaur media. The Republican establishment holds Trump in contempt as well. The only people who like Trump are the everyday Americans, who Democrat Party bigwigs, the liars of the mainstream press, and the Republican establishment have ignored, forsaken, and despised for years.

Donald Trump is under attack by Leftists, including Democrats, mainstream media, Hollywood sickos, and most disturbing of all, establishment Republicans, who really can stop the President by uniting with DC Democrats. An alternate lifestyle promoting moviemaker uttered "to hell with dreams" near the end of the nauseating Oscars. I say the American Dream can be more attainable for more Americans than ever under our new President. If Trump overcomes all the roadblocks being thrown in front of him, he will be able to advance his liberty agenda to the benefit of everyday citizens.

Have you ever noticed Chris Wallace lets Democrats like Terry McAwful talk but cuts off Republican Scott Walker before he can complete a point? I watched unctuous Wallace last week because I wanted to see Rush Limbaugh. This week I watched to see the difference when Rush is not on the air. I will not be watching next week or until Rush comes on again. The sad fact is that Wallace is more fair and balanced than the liars of the mainstream media. The press with few exceptions is after Trump's scalp. Chris Wallace is palpably biased and bad but much better than the outright liars in the printed press and on all the networks other than FOX News.

There are ridiculous allegations afloat that somehow President Trump condones anti-Semitism. Nothing could be further from the truth. Donald Trump sees himself as a friend to and protector of the Jewish people. He is as steadfast a defender of the State of Israel as there has been among non-Jews in American public life. Israel and the Jewish people are blessed to have such an ally in the White House.

John McCain handed Obama the Presidency when he was the GOP nominee. McCain would not even use his opponent's middle name, and condemned Bill Cunningham at an Ohio campaign rally for using "Hussein". Now, McCain is slamming the President of his own party like he never criticized Obama, and even doing it to play up to foreign potentates on foreign shores. I would call McCain a RINO (Republican in name only), but I fear there are many in the Republican Party who agree with him that Donald Trump is more of a danger than Obama ever was.

The Leftists that comprise the establishment (even if they have R after their names) and their press acolytes are doing all they can to sabotage and bring down President Trump. Even John McCain seems to be jumping on the bandwagon. We finally have a real change agent in the White House who wants to lift up everyday Americans, yet there are so many standing in his way.

In the past, America has pulled Israel up short of victory over Arab armies and terrorists. With Netanyahu and Trump in absolute agreement that radical expansionist Islam must be defeated, Israel is now free to robustly defend itself from jihad, invasion, or potential nuclear attack by Iran. Trump and Netanyahu face similar challenges at home from Leftists and press liars trying to bring them down, and unlike Obama and Netanyahu, who saw the world and Middle East completely differently, President Trump and Netanyahu are on the same page.

Russia has sent warplanes to buzz a US Navy vessel. Russia has a spy ship just off the US coast. Russia has apparently deployed a cruise missile banned by a treaty with the United States. This last act shows the value of treaties with adversaries. President Trump is well-aware of these developments and is no pushover like his "red lines" in Syria predecessor was.

Years ago, with the Church Committee, the old Cold Warriors who had defended America from the evil empire of the expansionist Soviet Union, began to be replaced by political intelligence operators who were much more in the thrall of the Left. Many now in the spy game entered the intelligence services under the Presidency of Bill Clinton or that of Obama. Their first loyalty may not be to the nation or its sitting President, but to the political Left. Some of them really hate Trump and are determined to torpedo his Presidency. Someone leaked intelligence intercepts that just forced out Mike Flynn as National Security Advisor.

I had a Facebook throwdown with someone I have knew thirty years back. This gentleman is tremendously educated with a degree of achievement that includes holding a doctorate and at least one patent. He seems OK with running down those engaged in civil disobedience with cars. I am all for order being restored but was thinking of the twenty year old daughter of a friend who left art school in Rhode Island to go to protest the North Dakota pipeline. My old acquaintance thinks the protesters should be removed "from the gene pool". I would say that is way too far. I think a criminal citation and a fine for those who do not comply with lawful orders is a good start, and maybe some pepper spray for the really recalcitrant. You do not need to slaughter high school and college students because they are in a rebellious phase. This is not Argentina in the bad old days or Pinochet's Chile.

In real life, there are no safe spaces! When people arrived on September 11, 2001 at the World Trade Center, they thought it was just going to be another day at work. Reality intrudes. If you do not want your thinking challenged, what are you doing in college? Are you simply there to have your Left-leaning bias reinforced?

Social justice warriors are out of their minds. Those who demand we open our borders would not leave their doors unlocked. Those who demand we accept every so-called refugee would not want one living in their spare room. Those who fight pipelines drive their cars to the protests. You see social justice has little to nothing to do with real justice or real life.

Donald Trump is unlike any former US President. Unlike Reagan, he is no ardent rightist or Christian conservative. Trump is not doctrinaire but a pragmatist. Unfortunately, because he is not of the political establishment but an outsider, Trump does not enjoy deep backing from the Republican Party.
Friday, February 10, 2017
The courts, the media, universities, and the Left in general are in a conniption over our new President. These Leftists were utterly silent when Obama excluded Iraqis (including of course Muslims). They are now doing all they can do prevent Trump from governing. The most important aspect of governing is protecting the US and its citizens, which is precisely what Trump is trying to do.

The Left and its pocket media characterized Ronald Wilson Reagan as a "cowboy", an "amiable dunce", and a "doddering old fool". They said Reagan was going to start World War III with Russia. The Left accused George Bush the First of being a sinister patrician who was personally flying an SR-71 (a spy plane, at over 2100 mph, the fastest in America's arsenal) to Paris to persuade the Iranians to hold onto American hostages until Reagan took power from Carter. They accused George W. Bush (the younger) of being a crony capitalist and reckless cowboy who would wage a war and kill many thousands solely for the benefit of Halliburton. The Left now accuses the next Republican President Donald J. Trump, who was only so recently sworn in, as being an anti-Constitutional mad man. In every aforementioned incidence, the Left and their press lackeys are deliberate liars and smear merchants.

Sunday, we were at a local hospital where someone very dear to us was fighting for her life. She called out my name,looked me in the eye, and emphatically declared, "I am determined". I know precisely what she meant, She wanted to make it home. I am so sorry she could not. Arlene, we will love you always.

You can take the FOX broadcast with arch-Leftist Harry Belafonte and stick it where light does not shine. FOX should have been embarrassed to air it, but sadly, they are proud of their "inclusiveness" that actually pretty much excludes Trump and most of those who voted for him (including deplorable me).
Many Leftists are talking about impeaching President Trump (or doing even worse). Do they realize that if they do bring down Trump,who is a moderate, they will not bring Obama back or make Clinton President? They will be putting Mike Pence in the Oval Office, and he is much more conservative than Trump.

Those rioting against Milo or Trump are either horrible or deluded people. We have the right to assemble and PEACEFULLY protest. There is no right to destroy the property of others or do them harm. You can not knock people out, throw rocks at them, hit them with flag poles, or attack them with pepper spay because you disagree with them. Where are the police to stop them? If the police do not stop them, it is time for the coal miners to come in and break some bones, just as they did when the Communists tried to steal power back from Yeltsin in Russia.

President Trump and Texas Governor Abbot are absolutely right in dealing with lawlessness. Cal Berkley allowed speech to be silenced by rioters. When the ability to convey ideas is violently denied, this is lawless and anti-Constitutional. The President should strip Federal funding from Berkley until everyone's right to speak is protected there. Austin, Texas determination to be a sanctuary city does not trump Federal or state law. Governor Abbot is right to withhold state funds until Austin follows the law. Money is not exactly a language but it is the language the Left understands. Limit their access to other peoples' money and they will soon come to understand they are not a law unto themselves and that their universities and cities have to comply with national and state laws.
Thursday, February 2, 2017
Rioters at Cal Berkley injured people and set fires to prevent Milo from speaking on campus. Violent actions to squelch free speech can not be tolerated in our Republic. How ironic is it that those calling Trump and his supporters Nazis are using the Nazi tactic of street violence to deny the free speech rights of others?

No matter who our new President picked to fill the vacancy on the United States Supreme Court, the Left including the Democrats and their main stream media lackeys, were going to viciously oppose the nominee. Neil Gorsuch is as reasoned and brilliant as anyone who has ever served on the nation's highest court, and only lunatics, fools, and partisan hacks will oppose him. It is a shame that there are so many that will gladly stand against such a fine jurist.
Tuesday, January 31, 2017
I am not talking about the music group, but the United States Supreme Court. Donald Trump would be hard-pressed to find a more qualified candidate to fill the vacancy on the US Supreme Court than Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch is a judge in the mold of Antonin Scalia and will enforce the original intent of the US Constitution. Bravo Mr. President on an excellent pick!
President Trump has carefully and narrowly restricted the entrance from some terror-exporting countries. Trump has not initiated any Muslim ban or imposed any religious test for entry into the United States. In fact, Trump's policy mirrors the ban Obama imposed for a time on entry from Iraq. Those stirring the pot by making outrageous and false claims are determined to undermine our new President no matter what he might do.

The demonstrations and violence directed against our new President would have happened no matter who the Republicans nominated, presuming that GOP candidate won. If moderate John Kasich had won, the women's march still would have occurred because Obama's successor did not have a "D" next to his name.

The anti-Trump narrative by the mainstream media is not because of anything Trump has done or said. Nothing Trump did as a private citizen in regard to women rises to what Hillary's husband did, but a million or more women never rallied to protest Bill Clinton. The Left is not really concerned that Trump is a "fascist". Those who know anything, know he is not. They are mad that the withered crone they wanted as our President did not win. The press arm of the Left is angry as well. They will slime and distort to hurt Trump because the old worn-out candidate who shares their old worn-out ideas did not win.
Monday, January 23, 2017
Donald Trump knows what the mainstream media is. Trump and his administration will not sit by silent while the dinosaur press tries to fool the public. Unlike George W Bush, who thought responding to the lies was beneath the Presidency, Team Trump will respond immediately to correct the record when the slimy leftists of the old media try to spread their litany of falsehood.
Sunday, January 22, 2017
Hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of brainwashed leftists joined marches against Trump yesterday. This fool's carnival took place before Trump has had a chance to do much of anything as President. The marchers assembled under the pretext of woman's rights. In fact, the real reason for the mass protests is that the protesters despise America as she was founded and hate anyone who seeks to restore traditional America.

Now we will have the chance to see if less regulation and consequently more freedom helps or hinders US economic growth. Now we see if standing side by side with allies yields more benefit than embracing enemies, as in becoming stronger friends to Israel and recognizing the Islamic Republic of Iran is an enemy and the leading nation-state sponsor of terror worldwide. Now we can be more secure that the Federal government will not come to take our guns. Now we will see if the flow of illegal aliens grows or diminishes with a President in office who actually demands secure borders. Now we will see if Muslims from countries so broken that vetting is impossible continue to surge in or if they are actually kept out until it is possible to determine who might go on to commit acts of terror among them. Now we will see if trade negotiations start to be fair to the American worker for the first time since the disastrous NAFTA was forced on everyday Americans. Now we will see if Red China will be allowed to manipulate currency and dump goods at prices so low competition in America has no recourse but to shut down. Now we will see respect for police rather than calumny. Now we will see the US rise again!

The land for peace initiative has always been doomed to failure as the majority of Muslims and huge majorities of Palestinians will never accept the very existence of a Jewish state anywhere in the Middle East. Until that mindset changes, if that ever happens, no amount of formerly Jewish-controlled land will satisfy the rejectionists. Also, look at the land that has already been given to Palestinian Arabs. The once Jewish parts of the Gaza Strip have become nothing but a hotbed and launchpad for terror. Peace for peace remains the proper equation.

When the Right in America was shut from the gates of power, they worked within the law and the electoral process to regain it. When the Left lost, they immediately hatched plans and started efforts to make it difficult, if not impossible, for Trump to govern. We have one President at a time, and Donald Trump has earned his chance to lead.
Monday, January 16, 2017
The vile Left will do all it can to disrupt the inauguration of our new President. This is especially troubling when you consider that their efforts to disrupt will be accompanied by jihadi terrorists efforts to kill. Yes, their throwing rotten eggs and stopping traffic have to be addressed, but they are distractions for the police from protecting everyone, even the protesters, from those who intend to murder.

One man succinctly summed up what those who valued traditional America wanted when Barack Hussein Obama took power. Limbaugh wrote, "I hope he fails". This statement was deliberately misinterpreted by the main stream media and disturbingly by the GOP elite who distanced themselves from the conservative icon. This is how establishment Republicans react when someone "speaks truth to power" in hopes of preserving America as the beacon of liberty and prosperity that she has been through her history up until Obama. The other major US party, the Democrats and their handmaiden media, are as a group trying to undermine our incoming President, who is trying to save the nation. They are openly saying that Trump is "not legitimate" and should not be permitted to lead us. This is not one outlier like Rush who happened to be absolutely right. This is a concerted effort by a whole political party and their main stream media arm to keep Trump from reversing the disastrous course on which Obama has placed our country and the world.

it took eight years for Barack Hussein Obama to reveal his true face, and it is an ugly one. Obama is a friend to tyrants. He just unilaterally reversed the "wet foot, dry foot" policy for those fleeing Castro's oppression. Obama has facilitated the Mad Mullahs staying in power in Iran by not supporting the Green Revolution there and with the "nuclear agreement" has actually paved Tehran's path to atomic weapons, while giving the terror-supporting state billions of dollars. Obama permitted the rise of the Islamic State by prematurely removing US forces from Iraq and leaving a power vacuum there. Obama has rewarded Palestinian intransigence and terror by becoming the first US administration to abstain from a United Nations vote that would have protected Israel. In fact, Netanyahu says Obama orchestrated the sellout of the Jewish State. It must be said that Obama is a friend of tyrants and terrorists. Obama has also subverted morality by opening the path to homosexual marriage, showing he was a hypocrite at the start of his administration, when he claimed to oppose "gay marriage". Obama is also the President of the "trans bathroom" (changing room and locker room as well) wherein adult male perverts can infiltrate the sanctum of our young daughters.

"Global Warming" can't get here fast enough. It was ten degrees or less in and around Nashville with wind chills below zero. I wonder if Al Gore is here now in his sometimes kinda hometown. If he is, maybe he can tell us how much carbon we need to release to warm things up again.

School officials made the boneheaded decision to open public schools with wintry weather rolling into my hometown of Nashville. The officials are making the mistake of attempting to offer an explanation along with their apology. They need to apologize and say they will do their best not to permit such a mistake to happen again. Their "explanation" is worthless and insulting.
I remember how my Dad would take his Jeep Wagoneers and plow through the worst weather that Nashville could throw at him. I sure wish I had one of those four-wheel drive marvels today. Nothing seems to be moving on my street right now and the snow is still falling. A team of Huskies might come in handy.

When a mentally-disabled young white man is kidnapped and tortured by blacks in Chicago, it is not a "hate crime", even though the culprits are verbally attacking whites throughout the video they recorded of their dreadful deed. When a white high school boy tapes his black schoolmate eating fried chicken and mocks him, this is considered a "hate crime". Maybe it is time to ditch "hate crime" laws and simply prosecute people for their criminal actions, rather than what is presumed to be the motive for those actions and to leave free speech alone. Speech that is innocuous needs no protection. Only speech that some or even many find offensive needs the shield of the First Amendment.

Barack Hussein Obama is trying to leave such a legacy of misery that Donald Trump (or Jesus Christ for that matter) could not clean it up. Even in his last days in office, Obama is piling on regulation and complicating foreign relations (see Russia and Israel) to leave Trump an unmanageable conundrum.
