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.

Obama Begs Putin For Time, But Trump Can’t Be Trusted To Talk With Putin?

Anyone who recalls the open mic that caught Barack Obama asking Russian Prime Minister Medvedev to beg Putin to give him (Obama) time to get re-elected so he could do Putin’s bidding during a second term in office, has to smile at the latest, leftist outbreak of idiocy with Democrats insisting that Trump cannot be trusted to meet with Putin next week in Finland. One either smiles or cries upon hearing such stupid thinking, depending on one’s ability to listen to fools and still have the ability to smile in their presence.

After over forty years of American leftists doing the bidding of Soviet leaders in their attempts to “bury” America and the Western world, we finally get evidence, via Obama’s microphone, that Democrats really have worked with Communists to defeat America, and now the Democrats pretend that the American president who has militarily attacked Russian troops in Syria, who has demanded that Crimea be freed from Russian occupation, and who is lecturing German officials in public for laying a pipeline to get natural gas from Russia when they could be getting their gas from America, and the American left pretends that President Trump cannot be trusted to put Putin in his place.

And when one adds the above folly to European and American protesters harassing people in restaurants, burning buildings where conservatives are scheduled to speak, and calling the quiet, respectful people who are the recipients of the attacks, fascists, we see an America on the edge of calamity in a world packed with thoughtless, ruthless dictators, and one realizes that Democrats must be kept from elective office at all cost. When the adults in the room are called fascists, the room is set for an explosion at the hands of the name-callers.

Democrats Need To Be Honest About Why They Object To Trump’s Court Appointees

Democrats don’t care about the constitution allowing a president to make several Supreme Court appointments during his/her administration.  And they don’t particularly care about liberal versus conservative appointments for a particular court opening. So why are they all in a twist about every Supreme Court nomination that President Trump makes? The sad truth is that Democrats are all about radical politics, while the Constitution is about efficient, fair governing and conflict resolution. And we all know that liberal Democrats despise the constitution.

All Democrats care about is not losing control of the Court, which control in the past has allowed liberals to overrule legislative initiatives and rulings that they don’t like and to get legal decisions that the legislature would not give them, by having the court rule on a personal preference basis as to what policy will be and what it won’t be. So they’ve packed the court with people favorable or persuadable to the liberal philosophy and made law from the bench when the law was in their way.

Conservatives are far more likely than liberals to decide cases based on the constitution, because it makes for a more stable, predictable existence, whereas liberals believe in “progressively” (their word, not mine) changing society and weakening it to the point where citizens are less self-sufficient and more dependent on government for the things the want and need.

Even a conservative Catholic justice is more likely to decide a case based on the wording of the constitution and not on his/her religion, but liberals are all about social change and giving every mal-content what they want, at government, and the broader societal, expense.

Too much of our current law has come from the bench and not from the legislature, and Democrats are filling their drawers with fear of losing their last great hope of continuing to rule America.

It’s Time To Stop Allowing Liberals To Determine The Conversation

If it’s acceptable for liberals to vote for a Supreme Court justice who is pro-abortion, why isn’t it acceptable for conservatives to want a justice who is pro-life?

Why is it that only liberals’ ideas and policy positions are acceptable? Why is it that an accomplished, Catholic, female, law professor from Norte Dame has to take insulting and nasty comments about Catholic dogma from a Jewish Senator, due only to the professor being pro-life? And considering that the anti-abortion/pro-life position has long been the tradition of our entire society, why should conservatives accept the deviant position of abortion, any time, anywhere, funded by tax payers, as a standard?

Now that we have Donald Trump in the White House, and now that we see him every day poking liberal dogma in the eye and getting away with it, it’s about time that Republicans grew some backbone and began fighting back at prejudiced, liberal/socialist ideas.

President Trump’s appointees for the vacant justice seat on the Supreme Court need not apologize for being pro-life or capitalists or patriotic Americans. With all of the news about Planned Parenthood selling the body parts of babies they have aborted, and treating the sale of the body parts as a legitimate business, it’s time that conservatives threw these things back at anti-American, leftist, Senators during the times when official interviews and hearings are held. I’d be willing to bet that there are many Democrats who have never heard that Planned Parenthood is doing such horrendous things, and the hearings of Supreme Court appointees would be a good time to make these things public knowledge.

And take any liberal position, for example the legalization of marijuana: Why in the world do we need another, new and additional legal intoxicant with which to trap our young people into a lifetime of dependence? It might be worthwhile to confront the idiocy of legalizing another drug with which to escape the daily hum-drum responsibilities of life and tell liberals to man-up, face reality and do what must be done to support themselves and their families, and stop trying to find a new escape from the realities of life.

One gets sick of watching conservatives take the defensive position on any and all issues and attempt to defend themselves for being good, patriotic people, and all because the leftist press will rip conservatives to shreds unless they buckle under and  at least give lip service to liberal positions. We have nothing to apologize for, as Trump’s successful policies have shown, as he moves forward and reverses all of Obama’s unconstitutional rules and regulations. We need to follow the leadership of our president and take the initiative for a change. I believe the mass of Americans are ready to follow if they understand the seriousness of the issues and hear the true difference between right and wrong policies.

The Party Of “Hope And Change” Can’t Deal With Real Change

When Barack Obama became president the Democrats told those who feared Obama’s far left presidency that they had to learn to embrace the change that Obama offered. Paul Ryan was even told by Obama personally to stop listening to Rush Limbaugh because Washington was going to perform differently, now that Obama was in town. And one will recall that Barack Obama defended his every subversive executive order by telling us that “elections have consequences”, and that his presidency was going to “fundamentally transform America” whether we liked it or not.

But with the election of Donald Trump, liberals literally lost their minds and could not accept the change that Trump represented. Now the nation is at risk of outright civil war because of the single-minded opposition of leftists and their insistence that the old, Obama-dictated, liberal order of things continue in spite of the real change the American citizens voted for with Donald Trump, a change that once again assures a rule, at the federal level, adhering to the law and with respect for the constitution.

And if you thought they had lost their minds with the election of Donald Trump, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet, until you get a load of the wacky accusations being made against President Trump just for exercising his right, and I believe it’s more like his duty at this point in our nation’s history, to appoint a second justice to the Supreme Court.

Stupid things are being said by the left, such as this second Supreme Court appointment just “fell into Trump’s lap”, as though any president could cause or prevent the vacancy on the Supreme Court. Leftists had no problem with Obama appointing three Justices to the court, which liberals considered to be only right and natural for an anti-American like Obama (and thank God for Mitch McConnell and his blocking of a vote on Obama’s third appointee, an opening which became Neil Gorsuch after Trump was elected) but it’s enlightening that liberals consider three appointments for Obama as being okay, but two for Trump is beyond the pale.

Of course, there are many things that are allowed to liberals that are forbidden to conservatives, and appointing two or three Supreme Court justices during an elected term of office is only one of the several odd things the left believes. It’s natural for liberals to dominate and rule, but conservatives need not apply. At present the leftist radicals are promising to “pack” the court with liberal judges as soon as the next leftist president is elected.  They’ll probably propose increasing the number of justices to 15 so the liberal new president can appoint six new justices in one fell swoop, and at that point the United States as it’s existed these hundreds of years, will end.

It becomes more obvious with each passing day why Democrats and Socialists must be kept out of government forever.

The Boring, Repetitive, Eternal Complaints Of The Left Are A Yawn

Each and every day we hear a new litany of complaints from liberal Democrats about how terrible life is in America under the Presidency of Donald Trump and about how terrible Republicans are.

As an example of the tripe coming from Democrat mouths, on a typical Monday we may hear about the destruction of the world via a warming/change cycle, which no one can see any evidence of. On a typical Tuesday it’s the Russian collusion lie for which no evidence has been found in over a year of intense investigation. On Wednesday it may be the imaginary, vicious yanking of children from their mother’s arms along our southern border, which is a made-up charge by the angry left. On Thursday it’s the evil “gun” that threatens to murder everyone in the nation, all by itself. On Friday it’s the alleged unlawful deeds that ICE commits that requires this organization’s removal from the American law-enforcing scene, even though the actions of ICE eliminate many bad people from American streets and whose acts are completely legal. On a typical Saturday it’s the alleged caging and imprisoning of small children (all of which was actually done under the Obama administration) along our southern border, which has liberals’ knickers in a twist. On Sunday it’s Russia stealing the 2016 election for Trump, even though our hero Obama himself, on several occasions, said such a thing was, at the time, not happening and could not happen under his stern watch.

Then the next Monday liberals may complain about Trump’s delaying of joint military maneuvers with South Korea, a tactic initiated by President Trump in order to show good faith to North Korea as part of a denuclearization effort, and the liberals, for the first time in 50 years, may cry that this delay is weakening our military preparedness against the newly-evil North Korea. Then on the next Tuesday the American left, who applaud any rogue nation in the world who burns an American flag, shed tears about Trump’s allowing the North Korean flag to be displayed on a equal basis with the American flag as Trump met with Kim Jong-un for denuclearization talks. And next Wednesday Nancy Pelosi may well claim that the murderous gang members of MS13 have a “spark of divinity” when they rape and cut up a young girl they don’t like. And on, and on….

Instead of being thankful that our nation is wealthy and that our economy is booming under Trump, and instead of being thankful that their children are healthy and well fed, liberals feel required to daily register lying complaints about how terrible life is under the Trump administration and how uncivil America has become this last year, even though liberals are then ones who have created the incivility.

But if one wants to discuss incivility in America, one would have to look at Hillary’s use of labor union members and homeless thugs to beat and intimidate Trump supporters during the 2016 campaign. And don’t forget the Black Lives Matter chants to kill police officers as they marched in New York City. Then there’s Kathy Griffin who displayed the severed head of our president as part of her unique “humor”. And who could forget Auntie Maxine Waters and her violent harangue to punish anyone who supports the Presidency of Donald Trump? And the left is trying to interfere with law enforcement by encouraging the tracking down of children of ICE agents and getting angry, and probably violent, with them.

The American political left, like all leftist, socialist regimes in the world, has been consumed with violence as a way to oppose President Trump, and when Trump appoints another conservative to the Supreme Court next Monday, expect a new wave of anti-Trump and anti-American violence from our former patriotic fellow-citizens on the political left.

Democrats Have A Tendency To Bite Themselves In The Butt

Liberals, not being ones to follow tradition nor obey the constitution, always manipulate rules to favor themselves, not realizing that they often make short-term decisions that will lead to long-term problems for themselves, and the nation. Here are a couple of examples of liberals changing established rules in order to help themselves resolve an immediate problem, but hurting themselves in the long-run:

* The special council rule was put in place by Democrats in the 1970s because they were angry at not being able to persecute Richard Nixon over Watergate, like they are today able to daily attack President Trump with the Russian collusion lie. This special rule that Democrats hurriedly put into place led directly to Bill Clinton being investigated by an independent investigator during the Monica Lewinski affair.

* Harry Reid got the “nuclear option” put in place in order to get Obama’s Supreme Court appointees placed on the bench, and now his short-term gain may prove to be Trump’s long-term gain by having this approach to getting justices appointed on the bench already in place, thank you very much liberal Democrats.

When a party is so consumed with winning at any cost, as Democrats are, they will often do things that undermine civil, common practice in particular, and the larger society in general, and the Democrats, especially since Donald Trump became president, are hell-bent on winning and totally defeating the party of Lincoln, at any cost to themselves and to the nation.

Even The Democrat Celebrity Thinkers Are Fools

As has been discussed in these articles before, Democrats behave like trained seals: they’re given the weekly party line, by some progressive boss, and are expected to appear on all of the cable channels and write articles for the NYT and WaPo and push that party talking point. During the Bush administration they suddenly, and for the next few days, wailed about the lack of people possessing “gravitas” who were appointed to positions in the new Bush administration. A few weeks ago the edicted line was Trump is kissing up to Kim Jong-un.  Then last week they started the push to disband ICE because this necessary organization was being too successful in keeping very bad people out of our country.

The lead voice in this insistence that we open our nation to a literal invasion of biblical proportions and allow anyone in who wants to be here, seems to be led by Senator Kirsten Gillibrand. Her latest phrasing is that ICE has become too independent and too harsh in its law enforcement so we need to disband this group and form another, weaker group, to take its place enforcing immigration laws.

What the good Senator seems to be missing is that ICE is just following, and trying to enforce, laws passed by congress. If we were to hire a new group, they’d follow the same laws, as long as Trump is president, and they’d do the same things to protect Americans because it‘s the law. The problem that the Democrats are missing is that they don’t like the laws as currently written, and if that’s the case why are they not assembling to rewrite the laws pertaining to immigration and then ICE would have new laws to follow and their behavior would be different. But ICE’s current behavior is the responsibility of Congress because that’s where laws come from.

But to shout insults at ICE agents and to suggest chasing their children down at their schools and frightening them, personalizes the leftist’s frustration at not being able to get new, dependent welfare recipients into the country to vote Democrat in the next election, so they stick with the easy way to build a butt-boy, via verbal abuse and fierce intimidation, because they know that they would never be able to get laws with a lower severity of enforcement, even if they tried. President Trump was put in the White House by the American public mainly because he swore to enforce immigration laws and to keep the invaders out of America.

So Senator Gillibrand and her leftist cohorts are fools and liars for the positions they are taking, because the American people are dead set against liberal open borders policies. We want our borders blocked, and we want people who are already here illegally, sent home.
