Statement from the Candidate

In 2010 I ran an unsuccessful campaign for the United States Congress, but I'm still posting blogs that I believe express an opinion that most other people miss, and that I also believe can make America great again and cast off the yoke of liberal/progressive control that is currently in place.

Unending Liberal Privilege

Michael Cohen, Trump’s former lawyer, whom the Democrats in the House were using in an attempt to gather dirt on Trump, was sentenced to jail for his felonies weeks ago, but has been allowed to remain free to live a normal life since the sentencing in order to appear before the House of Representatives and tell his lies about President Trump.

But Roger Stone got the full terrorist hit-squad, riot-gear treatment from the FBI warriors armed to the teeth with assault rifles and battering rams as he was collected to go before a judge for processing, and he hadn’t even yet been charged with a crime, let alone convicted, and he was treated like a multiple killer or a mass terrorist who threatened society instead of the white-collar essence of the crime he was finally charged with.  And Paul Manafort, another of President Trump’s former employees, was held in solitary confinement awaiting trial, and was shuttled off to jail, possibly for the remainder of his life, as soon as the judge issued the sentence for his white-color, non-violent crimes.

Today even criminals have Liberal privilege. Talk about honor among thieves and the subject must be about Liberals. And since the decision to lock-up a sentenced felon or let him remain free comes from the justice side of the law and not the legislative side, how much collusion between the law and the Democrat law-makers does it suggest when only Trump’s former associates are treated like really bad hombres, and the Democrat’s useful idiots are allowed significant freedom, liberty and respect when they’re convicted?

What has happened to justice in America? Answer: Barack Obama and the radical leftist tack of Democrat rulers, that’s what. And the treatment of Donald Trump and the eternal persecution of him for the lie of Russian Collusion, which the FBI and the DOJ both knew was a lie and a set-up deal originated by Obama and Hillary, are just a continuation of the same old Washington Swamp theme of getting rid of anyone who threatens their power to rule from their position of Liberal Privilege.

America Doesn’t Need A President Who Is A Rock-Star Or A Doper

So far, as we lead up to the 2020 presidential election, the only Democrat candidates who have proudly stepped forward and announced that they are running are people who seem to be proud of the fact that they have smoked, inhaled and enjoyed a toke or two, or are built up and celebrated by the leftist press as being rock stars.

And if there is the odd Democrat candidate somewhere who is not a doper or a rocker, he, or she, is running on the same old leftist, Socialist, rotten platform as the ones who are rockers and the dopers.

Today’s Democrat party has no serious candidates among their number. All of them just play follow-the-leader with the leftist pitch for free college, free income, free smokes and free healthcare. And while everything is being promised to be free, they are all critical of Capitalism, which is the reason why things can be advertised as being free, because Capitalism has been so successful for so many people, with so much wealth and comfortable living having been created under its banner, that unthinking leftists believe that the golden eggs will continue to be produced by the Capitalist goose, even if the goose is killed and consumed. As Venezuela is now learning, the Capitalist goose only has one life, and when it’s gone no more wealth and no further job-creation comes from it. Life becomes short and brutish and miserable.

The current slate of Democrat candidates don’t like America and have no respect for our constitution, which limit’s the power of the government and reserves most things in life as being at the discretion of the individual citizens and not government. The reason for their disdain for constitutional limits on the government is that Democrats want to constantly expand the role of government in, and control over, our lives, and they want any power-limiting device done away with so they can rule like dictators. The entire current Russia collusion investigation was caused by an overlarge government, in which Barack Obama told the FBI and the Justice Department to NOT prosecute Hillary Clinton for her various and dangerous email crimes, which was followed by the trumped-up Dossier aimed at Donald Trump and the further in-depth cover-up of Hillary’s classified documents crimes by the FBI, which puts many governmental actors in danger of prison for obeying Obama, and all because the leftist, Democrat president demanded that a fellow-thinker, Hillary, remain in the Oval Office and continue the big-government reign of power that Obama began. Every move Obama made was unconstitutional and was performed to take power from citizens and place more power in the hands of the Deep State Swamp.

So dopers and rock-stars, none of whom are very smart nor very deep thinkers, should be kept out of the Oval Office because they are  a danger to all of the freedoms and liberties we exercise daily and want to continue to enjoy. If one of the Democrat dope-heads is elected to the presidency they’ll rule by executive order, they’ll open up the southern border to all illegals who want to live here, they’ll pack the Supreme Court with leftist judges, and they’ll destroy this great nation.

Pegging A Date And A Warming Level To Bernie’s 12-Years-To-Doom Prediction

On March 5, 2019, I published an article titled “The Earth Has Only 12 Years Left? Let’s See” in which I expressed doubt as to the validity of the 12-year warning of the earth’s end, which is all the rage in Democrat/Progressive focus groups. Although I was on target with my advice to track the next 11 years (the first year is already in progress on Bernie Sanders’ 12-year warning) and see if the earth actually does warm up incrementally, as each of the years passes us by, I failed to consider the actual level of warming Bernie and AOC are referring to with their 12-year heads up.

Considering that the original warming proponents of the 1970s and 80s told us that the earth would experience a warming of about one or two degrees in the next 50 or 60 years, that’s not much warming to worry about. Plus, it is not politically useful to leftist radicals and provides them no political clout at all. So I assume that Bernie’s and AOC’s new claims, now for only 12 years and not dozens of years into the future, must be anticipating warming to increase much more than the paltry 2 degrees formerly predicted.

So if the old prediction of a 2 degree increase wasn’t powerful enough for the current, lying Democrat politicians, maybe an increase of 50 degrees by 2030 would be a good number to shoot at, since no respectable Democrat politician will commit to a number.

In the Midwest, where I live, a 50 degree increase by 2030 would make the months of July and August weigh in at about 150 degrees on the hottest days. That’s plenty warm, but it’s livable if the Green New Deal permits us to keep our air conditioners, which it won‘t.  It’s also very unlikely to happen, based on any warming that’s occurred in the last 20 or 30 years.

So an increase of 50 degrees in 12 years means an annual increase of about 4 degrees from 2018 to 2030. Since we’re in the first of these 12 years, can anyone say that the temperature at their hometown has gotten hotter so far?  It hasn’t as far as I can determine. In the Midwest I haven’t seen the range of temperature changing much during this first lapsed year. During the summer of this year (2019 will begin the second year of Bernie’s 12-year promise of destruction) I’m anxious to see if temperatures of 105 to 109 degrees actually happens. But since there has been no noticeable increase of temperature during year one, I believe old Bernie is just being political with his scare tactics, and I’ll bet we also will not see any increase in temperature during year number two, either. One wonders if Bernie’s followers will ever be able to see the insult to their intelligence with the warming/change claims.

If we are to take Bernie and AOC at their literal word about continued warming and devastating weather, we must assume that this warming has been going on for many years as the warming alarmists claim, and it makes one wonder if every year since 2000 as an example, has seen the temperature increased by the estimated 4 degrees? If that were the case then temperatures today in 2019, would have to be 76 degrees hotter, every day, following the 2000 start date. And this proves the lie of the warming advocates’ alarming claims. Because in the Midwest in March when the temperature may reach a maximum of 40 or 50 degrees, the 76 degree increase in temperature would push the temperature to 120 degrees, and this sort of temperature increase has definitely not happened. We are being lied to by these charlatans.

One must be careful when dealing with the inventive and lying Democrats, though. Maybe Bernie means that in the year 2030, all of a sudden the temperature will increase by his imaginary 50 degrees and will shoot to 150 degrees. Also one must consider that the Democrats will change their tune on a dime, as they did when they went from calling it “Global Warming” and switched to the phrase “Climate Change” because the lack of increasing temperature was undermining their whole raison d’etre.

So if Democrats are speaking about climate/weather and not exclusively about higher temperatures, then I’d like everyone to notice that the Midwest is famous for its tornados. The Kansas City area had a bad tornado hit in the late 1950s, and Joplin, MO was devastated in 2011, but neither city has seen any more damage from tornados since those two dates. So if Democrats tell us that the subject is climate change/weather, and  not the actual increase of temperature, then why is 2030 such a threat to us if the last 8 years has not produced another tornado as destructive as the one in 2011 was for Joplin? If temperatures are not rising as sharply as the 50 degrees I’m assuming for 2030, then how can weather get worse if the temperature does not increase significantly at the same time? Supposedly the use of carbon products is causing temperatures to rise and weather to be more violent, so I’m betting that Bernie and his radical pals cannot explain what’s wrong with my 50 degree assumption for the year 2030, because every American is still driving their cars and keeping their home thermostats at a comfortable setting, which means we are continuing our use of carbon products, and temperatures remain stable these last many years.

What if the old, less sophisticated  Democrats of 1975, when all of this bluster about the destruction of the earth began, had told us that the temperature of the world was increasing by 5 degrees a year because of there being too many cars, too many air conditioners, too many cows releasing gases, all of which claims are being made by today’s Democrats? If that was what they said back in the 1980s and 90s, the current temperature of the world, now 40 years later, would have increased by over 200 degrees. And although I’ll admit that winters are not as cold as they once were (but summers are still just as warm, although not any warmer than they were 40 years ago), I’m not aware of July and August in Missouri being anywhere near in excess of 100 degrees for more than a day or two at a time.

But by using the assumed 50 degree increase in temperature by 2030, and we must assume another 50 degrees increase 12 years after that, and each 12 year interval following those 12 years, we’ll still be nearing 200 degrees by 2050, per the predictions of Bernie Sanders, which is a complete crock of leftist crap.

So let’s track the weather and temperature predictions of Bernie and his leftist pals, starting with Summer this year, and, after two years into the 12-years-to-doom he’s predicted, see if we come even close to the 4 to 8 degree temperature increase that should be happening this summer if the lying Democrats are accurate with this global destruction thing.

American Politics, Clearly Stated

Conservatives, and most Republicans, like to be left alone and not be bothered with politics. They like to go to work each morning and return home to their families each night. They get great satisfaction providing for their families and feeling in charge of their lives.

Liberals, progressives and other Democrats like chaos, protest marches and telling everyone else how to live their lives.

The only times conservatives like public displays of emotions are at fourth of July parades.  Whereas Democrats enjoy ANTIFA brawling, occupy wall street sprawls, women’s marches, Black Lives Matter protests, trans-gender displays, and the occasional just plain riot.

When Republican politicians do something that is distasteful to the Republican leadership, as Iowa Representative Steve King did a month or so ago, the party immediately removes him from his committee responsibilities and shames him into silence. But when Representative Ilhan Omar makes a racist, anti-Semitic remark that shocks the nation, the Democrat leader in the House makes excuses for her, mildly shakes her finger at her, and then initiates legislation denouncing the type of remark that Omar made, but leaves the perpetrator of the remark unidentified and unblamed and in full possession of her committee assignments and her good name. The perpetrator skates free on the Democrat side, and the perp on the Republican side is punished.

Republicans choose to discuss pleasantly any and all differences between the parties, but Democrats call Republicans evil and their dutiful followers shoot Republicans on a baseball field outside Washington, nearly killing one of them.

Chicago Democrats are fond of paying friends to have themselves beaten, then calling the attack racism and blaming the it on a MAGA-hat-wearing white guy.

Conservatives usually praise the police for risking their lives to keep our streets safe. Democrats form BLM protests and call for police officer assassinations.

There’s a big difference between Democrats and Republicans, and the continuation of our lives as we’ve known them is dependent on voters keeping Democrats out of political offices.

Ho-Hum. Just Another Example Of Liberal Privilege.

One reads a lot these days of white privilege, but the privileged class is really a hyphenated class: the correct term is White-Liberal privilege.

One can recall Hillary Clinton’s daughter, fresh out of college, getting a six-figure job with NBC, for which she did absolutely nothing during the year she had the job. NBC was obviously buying access to Hillary in hopes of her becoming president one day, but did the influence buying have to be so obvious? And then Chelsea married and moved into a ten-million dollar penthouse in New York City. Enough said about privilege.

One can also recall the FBI refusing to prosecute Hillary after James Comey listed her various crimes for ten minutes during a televised talk on July 5, 2016. Now that’s privilege.

And what about Barack Obama speaking very softly and begging Vladimir Putin to give him more time to get re-elected so he could serve Russia’s demands. One dare not call it collusion, but it is absolutely Liberal privilege, that the leftist news agencies found nothing of interest here at all.

And how about Bill Ayers, the murderer and terrorist bomber, who gave Obama his big entry into national politics. Was the criminal Ayers an obstacle at all for Obama? Not when Liberal privilege is concerned.

And how about the Steele Dossier that initiated the Trump Collusion charge? Does the fact that for two years we’ve known that this document, used by the FBI to get Trump spied on via the FISA court, was a total fabrication bought by the DNC and the Clinton campaign people? Not a bit, when it’s by and for Liberal privilege.

And now we have liberal privileged Hollywood types buying access for their children to elite colleges and universities. Nothing here to see, no big deal. But maybe this elite college thing is not as great as we thought it was. After all Obama was the most corrupt and narrow minded president we’ve ever had and he attended Columbia and Harvard. And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got a degree in economics at Boston College, and it only got her a job tending bar in the Bronx; plus, she is the dumbest person in Washington at the present time. So fancy colleges can only go so far in life, and then you either have what it takes, or you don‘t.

Democrats Establish A Stench Of The Kremlin In The House Of Representatives

The current atmosphere in Washington is reminiscent of the state of terror that controlled everyone’s lives in the former Soviet Union, because American Democrats are acting exactly like Joseph Stalin with their reign of lawless terror in our nation’s capitol.

One of the most recent and outlandish acts of the House committees investigating President Trump was to send orders to 81 people close to Trump, his family and his business dealings, to respond to them about any dealings with Trump that could raise eyebrows as to their legality, in an effort to gather information so the Democrats in the House can begin impeachment proceedings on our president. A second reason Democrats have for the orders to produce documents is the hope that the Democrat majority can begin legal actions against some or all of the 81 recipients of the order. These costly legal actions would burden and worry people who have dealt with Trump in the past, which would act as a warning of more demands in the future from Democrat legislators, which demands could result in costing tens of thousands of dollars to innocent people, with the further threat of bankruptcy or prison if the Democrats don’t get the damaging information they want on the president. Robert Mueller and his band of  investigators have shown the path to this kind of corrupt justice, and people like Michael Flynn and Paul Manafort have paid the price for having known and worked with President Trump, and have been financially and legally broken for actions taken outside of, and unrelated to, their workings with Trump in the last election.

These orders to produce are just a way to beat down people close to Trump and hopefully get some dirt on him, out of fear of being ruined by the corrupt Democrats. And anyone deciding to not send in the demanded documents, will be subpoenaed and likely found in contempt of the House and threatened with even higher legal bills, just because they know, or worked with, President Trump.

The stench of Joseph Stalin and Hitler’s SS are all over the Democrats in their zeal to hurt Trump’s reputation before the 2020 elections, of at least cause many current Trump supporters to abandon him due to the negative atmosphere the corrupt Democrats are manufacturing.

The old quote of Stalin’s pal, Lavrentiy Beria, of “Show me the man, I’ll find you the crime” should be posted above the entrance to the House Of Representatives because of their Stalinist actions taken to remove a president that is undoing all of the third-world policies and positions the Democrats have enacted the last fifty-or-so years, acts that destroy nations and impoverish their populations.

Democrats, in their frenzy to get the goods on Trump, are behaving like jackals, and that’s not the tradition that has made our legal system the envy of the world. Or to phrase it in Obama-style: that’s not who we are.

The Self-Identified “Boss” is Simply, Bossy

The immature and dangerous Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has identified herself, after being in the House for a little over a month, as the “boss”. I’m not certain exactly what she thinks she’s the boss of, but the boss of shrillness and idiocy are all she‘s displayed. She evidently does not understand that her job as a legislator is to negotiate with Republicans and oversee the protection of our nation and our constitution, not give American citizens orders and then threaten to punish them when they don’t respond to her demands favorably.

If you were to tell Ms. AOC that, rather than having the government issue whatever idiotic healthcare plan that radical leftists could patch together, you would prefer to keep your existing healthcare, which you may be personally paying for or are getting from your employer, Bossy would tell you that you will not be allowed to keep your plan under her enlightened and necessary idea of liberty in America. At least our corrupt Democrat legislator is being honest with us up front, unlike the America-hating Barack Obama who lied and reassured us that under his unconstitutional Affordable Care Act we could keep our plan, period; and we could keep our doctor, period; yada, yada.

If you were to tell AOC that you would like to drive a large, powerful car, she would tell you that, under her plan, you will not be permitted to do so.

If you were to tell her that you like the idea of a dependable, 24-hour supply of electricity to heat and cool your home in all weather conditions, she would deny your request at such a ridiculous notion, because don’t you know, earth has only 12 years left to live.

Of course the ignorant Miss Bossy will have luxury healthcare, and she will ride around in Limos and private jets, and her home will be comfortable in all weather because she will be able to get Coal- or natural-gas-fired electricity all the time. But you won’t, under her new Socialist/Communist Green New Deal plan.

A vision of horror like that of Venezuela is on the American horizon with the current bunch of America-hating Democrats who think that they know how America should operate better than the unique American traditions developed and proven to be successful over decades of experience. Democrats are acting like a drunk mechanic who is ripping your car’s engine to pieces with sweet promises of a better running auto when he’s completed the modifications. and all you came in for was an oil and filter change.

Our new and unwelcome “Bosses” on the Democrat left are just dictators-in-training, and so far they’re not doing well with their indoctrinations. Their job is to represent us, not give us orders. But our main job as citizens is to boot these fools out of their elected positions before they do real, lasting harm to America.
