More Honduran Migrants Coming!

101418HondurasGettyVarious news reports are stating that a caravan of about 1300 Honduran migrants are heading to the U.S. in an attempt to escape the poverty and gang violence in their home country.  I have held the position in the past that these people need to stay home and fix their own country, but I have changed this line of thinking.  I think it is time to listen to these people.  Let’s take them in and get their story, make it public and figure out what the hell can be done to stop this in the future.  Why have I changed my thinking you ask?  Because we finally have a leader who can fix it sitting in the White House.  The question is, do we?

Embracing Violence

Democrats have now embraced violence in their quest for power.  These are the actions of a desperate people who’s policies have failed miserably and have nothing positive to offer.  Recent comments back this assertion up, for example:

We can’t be civil with Republicans until we win – Hillary Clinton

When Republics go low, we kick them – Eric Holder

Maxine Waters, Cory Booker and others have chosen this road as well.  Intimidation and violence will backfire, non-lunatics don’t like it.  This will only get worse as time goes on, because that’s how losers act.  Then we have this coming down the pike:

Political Civility is Dead

civilityWe can all see how things are happening around this country.  The lunatic Left are attacking conservatives every where.  At a Texas college rally, signs were ripped from peoples hands and tore up.  I’m pretty sure this is a crime, e call it theft of a person and it’s a felony.  Time to enforce it.  Vandalism of Republican offices.  Yelling and screaming at Republicans in public, protesting at public venues such as restaurants, doxing private information etc.  Goofy Liberals on TV making idiots of themselves (The View comes to mind).  I expect it to get worse.  I also intend to wear a new MAGA hat.  It’s time for #NoMore

What Do The Crats Have To Offer….Cont.

Still a simple question!

What Do The Crat’s Have To Offer?

1123Just a simple question  🙂

 

The Mentally Ill Left

340426128b1f38e87b4d587a9410bb52--archie-bunker-conservative-humorNothing these days says mentally ill like the hate of Donald Trump that is on display each and every day by so many on the Left.  They can’t even give a eulogy at a funeral without taking shots at him.  The Liberal media, constantly claiming he’s lawless, he’s a racist etc along with all his supporters just add to the evidence of mental illness.  The walls are closing in they say and have been saying for almost 2 years with absolutely no evidence, that’s mentally ill.  The economy is booming, consumer confidence is skyrocketed, black and Hispanic unemployment at all time lows or very near, yet the Left still hates.  That’s mentally ill.

 

Chicago

thMK3KRQ0EWhat should be done to deal with the shootings and killings in Chicago?  This shouldn’t be political, but it will.  Sadly, Chicago will run out of young blacks before politicians actually do anything.  So, I ask why?

 

Useless Media Hacks

Omarosa-Offended-that-President-Trump-May-Have-Used-the-N-Word-1-500x351The Liberal media, in there own arrogance, colluded (yes, I used that word) to write opinion pieces against Trump in over 300 newspapers nationwide.  All this did was prove exactly what Trump has been saying, the Media are the enemy of the people.  I don’t mean a violent enemy, but an enemy of unbiased reporting of the free press.  The Liberal media, namely Cuomo on CNN is actually supporting the violent antics of Antifa, the fascist radicals whose name is a lie.  They feign anger at ICE arresting a wanted murderer after they caught him taking his pregnant wife to the hospital.  These people are SICK.  And, they have rendered themselves useless, with nothing to offer the people of this country.

 

Who Are The Truth Tellers?

truthIt’s been well known for some time that the MSM is seriously biased, mostly to the Left, with FOX holding a Right Wing view.  Alternative media is under attack by the Liberal run tech giants, as conspiracy theorist Alex Jones has been banned by most Social Media and many other sites are being shadow banned on Fakebook and Twitter.  Sadly, what is being most affected is Conservative views on Social media, while sites for Antifa and clowns like Louis Farrakan are still running strong.  The local news, after covering the killings and robberies (Pittsburgh) are just repeating the MSM talking points.  Journalism is dead.  With that said, who are todays truth tellers?  The answer is……who is being censored the most?

 

What Are They Thinking?

thRAVZEPZBDespite being super busy building a house, I have found a little time to keep up on things.  After the last election, one would think that the losers would change their ways in an effort to get elected, yet almost two years later, they seem to have doubled down.  The Left continues to attack Trump, and despite his flaws, he’s doing a great job for the country.  The Left continue to attack Patriotism, although that has been a total failure and continues to backfire.  They continue to attack law enforcement for simply doing the job they were hired to do (minus the few bad cops who abuse their authority).  The Left keeps calling everyone that don’t agree with them Fascist’s, racist’s etc.  Apparently the only ideology the Left has is based on hate, lies and banking on people being stupid enough to think the government can give away free things.  To answer the question, they aren’t thinking, maybe because they are incapable.

 

The More They Howl…

alphas…the more their glaring hypocrisy and lies come to the surface.  Just like the Russian issue, when Clinton used that stupid misspelled reset button, it was giddy applause by the Left.  When Obama was caught on a hot mic telling Medvedev that he’ll have more flexibility after the election, the Left was giddy with applause.  But make no mistake, ALL of the recent election accusations occurred under Obama and his team.  They are the failures for knowing and allowing Russian interference, and it’s proven that they knew.  The Russians are no where close to being a problem to the US compared to the Progressive, Socialist’s, Communist’s and Democrats.  They ARE the problem!!!!

 

The SCOTUS Circus

democratplatformCome Monday, Trump’s SCOTUS choice will be announced.  The Left is already unhinged on numerous subjects, protesting ICE at a raid to stop human trafficking, climbing the Statue of Liberty, throwing soft drinks on teens and taking their hat.  Now we get to watch the Liberal media lose their minds and Democrats in DC go so low it may surprise everyone.  At least it’s providing for some entertainment 🙂

 

Let the War Evolve

thG3KV2EXYIt is beyond the point of being nice.  Civility is gone between the two sides, yet, the majority of the people are just stuck in the middle.  Many stuck in the middle are simply not partisans and just want to live life.  For the lead up to the 2008 election and beyond, Conservatives were constantly labeled as racists, misogynists, this phobe and that phobe, deplorables etc.  It didn’t work too well for the Democrats and now, Trump is giving them a taste of their own medicine and they really don’t like it.  But this was going to happen, Trump or no Trump.  I just wonder how violent it will get.

 

Imagined Crisis

immigrtionThe imagined crisis at the Southern border shouldn’t be a surprise.   This is what the Crat’s have become, the perfect radicals following their cult Bible, Rules for Radicals. The law that seems to be the cause of this, The 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act, was passed by a Democrat majority Congress.  This same crisis occurred in 2014 under Obama, and it was far worse, but without the feigned hysterics.  So Trump signs an EO, and expectedly, is promptly sued.  This comes the day before the House is set to vote on a couple immigration bills.  The EO is perfect political cover for Republicans.  They can vote party lines and let the bill(s) fail in the Senate.  They will fail because the Crat’s won’t vote for them, because they would prefer to use kids as pawns than actually fix the problem.  Maybe it’s time to put them in cages instead of their pawns.

Why Are The Left and Right At War?

thHF58L14RYes, it is a war too.  It’s happening in Europe and here.  The divide can no longer be ignored.  It’s a significant difference in ideology.  Maybe a discussion on this difference could be fruitful, maybe not.  But it’s time for a new thread, so here goes.  The Left, or those who espouse Socialism (or Communism, Fascism, or Progressivism et el.) are in simple terms Collectivists.  They follow the Greater Good theory, or, what is best for the many over rides the few.  This is always a great thing to the Left (until they find themselves as “the FEW” ).  On the other side are the Individualist’s who believe in personal responsibility and freedom for all.  The Collectivist’s like to tell others what is right and wrong and how things should be, while the Individualist’s would just prefer to be left alone and not bothered with the Collectivist’s rants. Hence, today’s current political wars.

Not much else needs to be said, so debate away.  🙂

 

Big Week or Dud?

north-korea-summit-logosThe coming week has some big events scheduled, with the Trump/Nork Summit and the release of the DoJ IG report a couple days later.  While my expectations are low on both issues, there is always some hope that one or both will solve same major problems.  I have never known peace with the Nork’s in my lifetime, so it would be really nice to finally ending a war that has been on hold for 65 years.  What I don’t expect is a lame deal like Bill Clinton agreed too, which accomplished nothing.

The DoJ report could be an interesting rebuke of some key players in the FBI and DoJ.  If this is the case, I fully expect charges and trials to take place.  This also may include reopening the Clinton email case and handling it according to actual law, not political partisanship.  With McCabe begging for ammunity for his testimony, it would appear someone or some one’s are in deep poo poo.  Let the heads roll.

 

The Great Divide

divideWhen it comes to politics, divisions between Conservatives and Socialist’s continue to grow.  The Left Wing Socialist’s (or Progressives, or Communist’s, pick a term) have a loud voice in the Legacy media and late night comedy shows (comedy might be a stretch).  The Left’s desire to be slaves of the State is growing by the day, despite all the historical evidence that Socialism, Communism and Fascism are all failed ideologies that resulted in tens of millions of deaths.  Our education system, run mostly by the Left, is failing to not only protect kids, but educate them.  The latest two things that I have seen is asking people if they would date a Trump supporter or MS-13 gang member and many picked the gang member.  Then, there was Bernie telling BLM that we need to educate our kids, not jail them (no shit Sherlock, tell your Union teachers to give it a try).

What a sad time in history.

 

Still Waiting

Today’s Communist’s

thOOT22PK5Those who support “health care for all” and “free education” are advocating for their own slavery and destruction. Government can’t give “health care for all” or “free education” or anything else because government has nothing to give that it hasn’t taken from someone else.
Such a philosophy is based upon the Marxian economic theory, “from each according to his ability and to each according to his need.” It’s a philosophy based on deception and fraud.
Socialism is a disguised system of stealing the wealth and production of the producers of wealth with spurious laws. Stealing or taking from producers and transferring it to nonproducers make for very sophisticated and concealed class warfare. In other words, it is a parasite system with the parasites ruling and fleecing their host through deception.
This fleecing requires a strong police state to back up the government power needed to create conformity to reallocate the wealth. And it has led to mass murder and destruction every time it’s been tried.

Yanking WH Press Credential’s

thS4O3KAVJIn a Trump Tweet, he suggested removing the White House press credentials of the “Fake News” outfits.  While I can see his frustration with the Liberal media’s bias, I doubt that this move will happen, much less fix the problem.  There are other effective ways to deal with those that ask stupid questions all the time….don’t answer them and move on.  Some will claim it’s Trump that has the Liberal media in such a hate fit, but it wouldn’t matter who’ in the Republican side won, the bias would still be front and center.  My suggestion, treat them as the children they are.  Ignore them, but don’t give them any more ammo 🙂

 

Public Schools are Failing

chartrankingreading1Sixty-five percent of the eighth graders in American public schools in 2017 were not proficient in reading and 67 percent were not proficient in mathematics, according to the National Assessment of Educational Progress test results released by the U.S. Department of Education.

The results are far worse for students enrolled in some urban districts.
Among the 27 large urban districts for which the Department of Education published 2017 NAEP test scores, the Detroit public schools had the lowest percentage of students who scored proficient or better in math and the lowest percentage who scored proficient or better in reading.

Let California Split

thRP1EOUIQI think it would be a good idea for California to split into several new States, but not what is being currently proposed.  The Northern Counties already want out and I’m going to assume that many in the East wants to as well.  Although I highly doubt it would happen, succession could be attempted, especially when Trump squashes the Crat’s in 2020.  In all fairness, I think the Left should have their own place to do as they wish without dragging those who disagree with their ideology with them.  Maybe the Western part of the State would be a good start to see how things go.  After a few years, maybe we can let them back in, if they beg hard enough 🙂

 

Liberal Lunacy

The Facebook Protection Act
In a quest to make sure that Malaysia’s was not the most ridiculous and oppressive government on the planet when it comes to suppressing free speech, the California legislature is considering a bill to stamp out “fake news” – fake news being, of course, any news that is not approved by pointy-headed social justice warrior intellectual types occupying cubicles in government buildings.
The bill would “require any person who operates a social media, as defined, Internet Web site with a physical presence in California to develop a strategic plan to verify news stories shared on its Web site. The bill would require the plan to include, among other things, a plan to mitigate the spread of false information through news stories, the utilization of fact-checkers to verify news stories, providing outreach to social media users, and placing a warning on a news story containing false information.”

The Use of Narcan

narcanPutting out a quick article, life has been chaotic and I’ve had little time to really get into all the politics.  So, in light of that, I thought a quick chat about Narcan, the drug that saves people who are overdosing, should be readily available to the public.  I wrote not long ago about a 3 month old who didn’t survive despite the use of Narcan (I spelled it Narcam).  While innocent children like this 3 year old die because of the poor choices of their parent(s), the current epidemic of opioid abuse should be discussed and put into perspective.  Narcan can save lives, but is that the answer?  Is this a Government caused problem that Big Pharma is making billions off of?

 

Dear Media Puppet Children

liarsNot many people have doubts that some of the child anti-gun voices were coached (and pro-gun voices ignored) over the past few weeks since the Florida school attack.  It’s now come out the David Hogg, the loudest voice, isn’t an honest young man.  From interviews:

“So yesterday I was in my AP environmental science class, we had taken out all of our notes and we’re about to pack up to leave school and we hear a ‘pop’ and it happened to be a gunshot that echoed through the hallway,” Hogg told MSNBC last month. “And because of that, my teacher actually went and closed the door but as soon as she closed the door the fire alarm was pulled so this sick man could get more soft targets.” (MSNBC) This story was repeated in several interviews.

But in another interview with CBS News, Hogg says he was at home during the shooting, and had to ride his bike several miles to get to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School to “get as much video as he could” of the event.

“On the day of the shooting, I got my camera and got on my bike and rode as fast as I could three miles from my house to the school to get as much video and to get as many interviews as I could because I knew that this could not be another mass shooting.” (CBS).

Is there any honesty anymore?

Some Good News

thD826N0Z8Glad to hear that the Colonel’s better half is recovering from her surgical procedure.  I’ve had 3 foot issue, two surgeries and a broken heal and the broken heal caused some serious pain.  They make a scooter type of thing with 4 wheels, handle bars and brakes where one can place a knee and scoot around pretty easily once the pain subsides.  It’s much better than crutches, hint, hint  🙂

My father is also back home with his new pacemaker.  What a mess that was was, as the first surgeon botched the first two attempts, perforated the heart wall causing a bleeder.  This caused a transfer to another hospital, where that pacemaker was removed, heart repaired (last Thursday).  Given some time to heal before next attempt at a pacemaker, on Sunday morning he flat lined twice and had to get a temporary wire put in until Monday.  Monday went well and he came home yesterday.

As far as the first two botched surgeries, I’m working on that as well.  But for now, it’s back to some normalcy.  The old house is cleaned up and waiting for this damn winter to break so we can start the new construction.  The Austin bomber is a goner so Texas can rest a little easier.

 

Times Have Changed

Exports are a COST, Imports are a BENEFIT

In this imperfect world of ours in which governments everywhere presume to superintended the commercial activities of their subjects, trade agreements are often the best available way to make trade freer, if not as free as it can and ought to be.

This reality exists because of the combination of two powerful forces:
(1) governments are prone to serve special-interest producer groups within their jurisdictions, and
(2) most citizens are ignorant of economics.

These forces combine to create the widespread mistaken impression that international-trade’s benefits come in the form of exports while imports are thought to be the ‘costs’ that must unfortunately be paid in order to enjoy these ‘benefits.’

I estimate that three-quarters of all the negative feedback that I receive when I make the case for free trade is rooted in this utterly backwards understanding of the benefits and costs of trade.

Were people to understand that IMPORTS are the BENEFITS that we get from trade while EXPORTS are the COSTS that we must pay in order to receive these benefits, everyone would, in turn, understand the absurdity (for Americans) of what Trump proposes to ‘negotiate’ for Americans on the trade front.

The man’s goal is to arrange for Americans to be able to export more and to import less – that is, to spend more and to get less in return. It’s as if Trump (as well as SK and others) are really  secret agents sent here by an enemy government to enrich non-Americans at Americans’ expense.

Trade War!!!

steelI have been quite busy as of late with building demolition and clean up.  This part should be done by the end of the week (I hope).  At that point, the new home will begin to get constructed.  Later down the road I hope to post a pictorial of the whole affair, from the beginning to the end.

As a youngster back in the 70’s, I remember the devastation of the steel mills closing one after the other in my hometown, literally devastating good hard working families.  Now known as the rust belt, that period of time will always be etched in my mind.  The reasons were simple, cheap foreign imports.  The government did nothing.  Finally, we actually have a President with some testicles who is doing something about it and I fully support his decision to impose a 25% tariff on imported steel.  Maybe our own factories can spring up and fire up, providing thousands of good paying jobs once again.  Time will tell.  For those who ask, I don’t mind paying a little more for American made, much like I use local lumber products and frequent local eateries.  Trade War!  Let’s just win it!
