Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

In today’s world, a mob of outraged “social justice warriors” can get a person fired for the most inane of statements. The latest pound of flesh came from the President of ‘Mizzou’. However, his resignation is not enough. They are also demanding that he admit his “white privilege”. They also demand MORE black students – in spite of the fact that blacks score lowest on SAT/ACT.

As a nation, we have spent billions of dollars trying to help blacks erase the “education gap”, yet we reach this nadir of social justice mobs where everyone says that we are “racist”.

We spent billions on Head Start. It didn’t work.

Schools were integrated. That didn’t work.

Black schools with white teachers didn’t work.

Black schools with black teachers didn’t work.

Free computers and iPads didn’t work.

Huge private grants/gifts (e.g., Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates) didn’t work.

Entire school systems of blacks run by blacks and given MORE money per student than any other system didn’t work (see: Washington, DC).

So, it must be “white privilege” and racism! Tests are biased. Detroit and Baltimore are crime ridden and largely illiterate because of white privilege and the legacy of slavery! So let’s teach them to resent whites. Let’s teach that to young people! Yes, let’s teach that looting and rioting are “rebellion”. Let’s transform world class universities from centers of learning into “social justice” mad houses that preach myth and debauchery. There were students holding signs stating that they were “liberating” the campus – as if the campus were under military occupation. All would be good and right, if only more people like Sharpton were running the nation! For crying out loud, we actually have Presidential candidates pandering to the hooligans of the “Black Lives Matter” movement!

On top of that, we are being flooded with people from third world nations, and this is further changing the nature of our nation. Social atomization has encouraged short term time orientation, distrust, and corruption, which lead to social decay. And while this immigration flood is happening, jobs are being eliminated by automation. So we are importing MORE labor while simultaneously eliminating jobs. In what world does this make sense?

The ‘barbarians’ are not at the gate. They are in the town center!

How long can we hold the lid on this before it completely explodes? Another decade? 15 years?

Are we to continue to tolerate this social deterioration and intermittent rioting as preferable in attempts to appease them? Are we to continue to temporize, hold the lid on, and let our children worry about the larger ramifications later. Meanwhile, no one ever tells them the truth. Heck, telling the truth is all but banned in the mainstream. All the problems I listed above are blamed on “white privilege” as a given. So, the younger generations of blacks get angrier and more entitled, because they are taught to be angry and entitled. Young blacks feel they have the moral right to intimidate whites. They are taught that they can do no wrong and that whites can do nothing right. Heck, they are taught that “they” built this country. And they are taught this by leftist whites!

Black Mobs and the Coming Race War by Thomas Sowell


I have been watching the Donald Trump phenomenon over the past few weeks with detached amusement. I think that I speak for many when I say that it is great to finally see someone (anyone!) stand up to these outrage mobs and tell them to STICK IT. If nothing else, Trump is showing the blueprint for how to deal with the Left’s outrage mobs.

In a world where a white politician must apologize for saying that “all lives matter”, we are glad that someone isn’t afraid of them. In this world where the conservative movement has ceded issue after issue, many of us are just damn tired….of the so called GOP ESTABLISHMENT! We are tired of being told to wait until the next election, while they continue to cozy up to their liberal friends. We are tired of the supplicating, weak manlets that are represented in the GOP establishment

We are TIRED. And they are either so out of touch as to not understand it, or so arrogant that they do not WANT to understand it. Meanwhile, the everyday, conservative sees degeneracy at the top amongst the ruling elite, depravity at the bottom and despair in the middle. Let’s review why:

I came of age in the early 1990s and fully supported the GOP’s “conservative revolution” in 1994. I was excited about the Contract with America. I was excited that we would finally govern on conservative principles. But Clinton was still in office. So we were told that we needed a “conservative” at the top, to go along with our GOP ruled Congress. I staunchly supported George W. Bush in 2000 (I despised McCain, even back then). There were many out there just like me.

What did we get for our efforts?

- We got quasi-open borders where on the ground we witnessed as our schools were overrun by the mestizo children of illegals and our streets were littered with trash. We fought back and were called “racist” for our efforts to save our communities. We were called “racists” BY “CONSERVATIVES” who insisted that the illegals were “natural conservatives” or something. We are told that we are going to become “the next Brazil”. So we helplessly watched as once beautiful communities were transformed into mini 3rd world hell holes. Oh, and meanwhile, the people who criticize us live in Lilly white, gated AND guarded communities, while preaching to us that “diversity is strength”. We NEVER had a national debate on this topic. We were told by our elites that we must take this.

It has been 21 years, since the GOP’s “conservative revolution”, and STILL NO SIGN OF A WALL on the border! They lectured us, telling us that open borders is an “act of love” or that building a wall shows you “have no heart”. This rhetoric coming from people who say that they are CONSERVATIVE.

Oh, and we are told by these same people that Israel must be defended and should have a wall (which they have a magnificent wall that was funded by us), but they don’t feel the same about the United States.

- We got constant ceding of ground on the culture war. They backed down on every single debate.

- The establishment sucks up to the left so that they can attend the hip cocktail parties and make nice money. Meanwhile, we are thrown under the bus.

- After 9/11/2001, we got a grand nation building effort that cost of  more than $2 Trillion and counting instead of going overseas to unleash our military to completely obliterate our Islamist enemies with extreme prejudice. Anyone who called for naming and destroying this enemy was fired or discredited. Oh, and btw, let’s have open borders and IMPORT MORE TERRORISTS!

- We watched as “conservatism” was turned into a BUSINESS (Nay, a racket) that many of us call “Conservative, Inc”. If you want to see how it operates, just make a lunchtime visit to one of the many fancy dining establishments in downtown DC.

All of this happening while election cycle after election cycle, we are fed platitudes about “tax cuts”, “liberty” and evoking the name of Ronald Reagan.

Many of us have had enough. Enough with the platitudes. Enough with the ceding of ground. The elites respond by calling us “crazy” or “extreme”. But we are tired, now.

At this point, 21 years after the “conservative revolution”, I have nothing but contempt for the “establishment” and their minions and sycophants in “Conservative, Inc”. They have no principles, except making money off our backs (i.e., donations) while they ship us up the river.

This is why Trump is gaining traction right now. No, I do not expect him to win, but if he’s still in the race next year and still has the same message, then I will be voting for him. Should he lose, then I will likely sit out the general election rather than hold my nose again and vote for another weak, open borders, nation building, big government conservative that I can hardly distinguish from Hillary.

I will also tell you that the white base is starting to revolt and many are no longer listening to the establishment. All of the race baiting from the liberals and social justice warriors (enabled by the White House) is tearing the nation apart. We have grown tired of being called racist for NOT wanting to turn this country into Mexico or Brazil. We are tired of being called racist for seeing plainly that crime is largely a black problem, yet this is denied in all public quarters. We are constantly told that it is our fault that they commit crimes and destroy their own communities. Where is the full throttled, public defense for our values?

I for one have had enough. And until someone better comes along, Trump for President!

When traditionalists would argue that marriage should only be between one man and one woman and that opening marriage up to two people of the same sex would lead to polyandry, the response was that we were being ridiculous. Well, now that the SCOTUS has ruled that every state must recognize such unions, there are now groups that are now calling for – yep, you guessed it – POLYAMORY. Here is an article from a leftist publication that has already called for it.

The long term solution for the individual states will be for states to simply get out of the marriage business. Period! I disagree with Mike Huckabee’s view that we should continue to fight for traditional marriage. That horse left the barn with the election of Bill Clinton in 1992 and is a losing battle at this point.


Yes, this is a true story

I wrote about this issue over a year and a half ago on this board (click here to read it) when I predicted that the SCOTUS would indeed rule that same sex unions are legal in all 50 states. (Not bragging. That wasn’t difficult for anyone looking at the tea leaves)

Indeed, Obama has kept his promise to “fundamentally transform the United States.” We now live in a nation where a man can be called a “woman” (nay, they DEMAND you do so); where a person can change their race from white to black; where entire groups of people will marry each other; and it will essentially be illegal to be white. No wonder young whites want to change their race.

That seems to be something that Rudy Giuliani doesn’t believe. He brings up some points about how Obama spends more time tearing us down than building us up. That Obama lays shame at our feet so that he will receive what “he” feels America should be like. I’m not going to give my opinion as to whether Obama loves America or is a patriot. We all can think as we will and believe as we wish. I would just like to insert this piece that I recently received from a friend. I would suggest that it must be the embodiment of the feeling of true love and belief in this great country of ours. As an aside, it makes you wonder how we ever allowed the desecration of our flag as a form of freedom of speech. It surely makes me wonder.


So, the Калифорния legislature passed a bill restricting government surveillance with drones. Gov. “Moonbeam” Brown vetoed it.

Check out the stupidity:

Brown said in a statement that the bill appears to be too narrow and could go beyond what the state and federal constitutions would prohibit.

“There are undoubtedly circumstances where a warrant is appropriate,” he wrote. “The bill’s exceptions, however, appear to be too narrow and could impose requirements beyond what is required by either the 4th Amendment or the privacy provisions in the California Constitution.”

Uh, Guvn’r, if the bill didn’t put tighter restrictions on your misuse of drones than the U.S. and Калифорния Constitutions require, there would be NO DAMNED POINT TO THE BILL AT ALL.



Nice quote above from my good friend William Adama…

This article (click here to read it), written by a retired Lt Colonel whose son was killed by police, makes a good case on why we really need to rethink how law enforcement engages the public. They have a useful and necessary job to do, but the author points out that LE has simply become too militarized. He writes:

Our country is simply not paying enough attention to the terrible lack of accountability of police departments and the way it affects all of us—regardless of race or ethnicity. Because if a blond-haired, blue-eyed boy — that was my son, Michael — can be shot in the head under a street light with his hands cuffed behind his back, in front of five eyewitnesses (including his mother and sister), and his father was a retired Air Force lieutenant colonel who flew in three wars for his country — that’s me — and I still couldn’t get anything done about it, then Joe the plumber and Javier the roofer aren’t going to be able to do anything about it either.

While we certainly do not want to throw the baby out with the bath water on this, many of us believe that it is time to re-evaluate law enforcement as it interacts with free society. This should certainly not be viewed as an indictment against all police officers – the vast majority of them are fine and honorable community servants. But like any career, it must be evaluated and changed in keeping with our times. (As a side note, perhaps it would help a bit if our elected ‘elite’ would stop passing so many laws that need to be “enforced”)

I personally do not want to see law enforcement officers with .50 caliber machine guns mounted on turrets and other military hardware rolling on our streets. We only need to see these types of weapons in our communities if we are under attack by some outside invasion force. As we continue our unfortunate descent into a low trust society I fear that we will only see the polar opposite of my wishes.

I recognize that law enforcement is a very stressful job, but those who chose it did so willingly. And just as we expect teachers, doctors, pilots and others to do their jobs in a professional manner at all times, we should have the same expectation of law enforcement. Law enforcement keeps the law just like we’re supposed to do. Law enforcement does not rule the people.
