Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

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.

Oh, yes, the time is long overdue to have term limits on Congress and judges. Why would we only limit the Executive Branch without having the same constraints on the Legislative and Judicial branches? Why indeed. It appears that the need of limits is really making its case known in these modern times. You see, politics is a “scratch your back, you scratch mine” type of forum. Unfortunately, bias does not belong in any of these branches and when the party trumps the people, the system is surely broken. Case in point is the recent decision on subsidies for ObamaCare sign-ups.

It appears that two conflicting court decisions are at issue: the U.S. District Court (just below the Supreme Court) where a 2-1 decision was handed down stating that subsidies could only be given through state exchanges. By the way; this court had 4 Obama judge appointments placed after Harry Reid invoked the nuclear option in the Senate. The other court, the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals ( which is supposedly equal to the District Court ) held that the subsides could be granted by HealthCare.gov. What the 4th based there opinion (why would they have an opinion and not a sound ruling?) on is that Congress (read Dems ONLY) had the INTENT to make subsides available for all. Unfortunately, that is not what the law READS.

Here is my beef. We are no longer a nation ruled BY LAW. We have become a nation ruled by the intent of someone’s opinion of how they interpret the meaning of someone else’s thought. Words use to have meaning but, if you read this site enough, you will realize that Dems/liberals don’t use definitive definitions but, rather, however something should be interpreted at the time (which seems to change as constantly as wind direction). So it appears that all branches of government have been corrupted and no longer seem to function as their assigned duties prescribe. An old joke: “What do you call 10,000 lawyers at the bottom of the ocean?” Answer: “A good start!” Don’t get me wrong; lawyers were a needed and noble profession once. Anymore it is a stepping stone for self glorification. It has become corrupted in too many ways and lawyers are ever mindful of side-stepping the rule of law and perverting it. This isn’t the entire profession but a good portion of it. It seems that those same lawyers become judges…..with political ideology and leanings, where law is NOW being made instead of interpreted AS WRITTEN. There is no separation of powers anymore because we no longer have checks and balances as established by the Constitution. Since lawyers won’t clean up their own house, term limits, review boards for misconduct and dismissals are our next line of defense.
