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.

Unfortunately, due to whatever cause, young men are picking up guns, and too often and too frequently, are using them to kill people. It would appear that many of the killers lean toward the American political left in that they tend to get enraged and feel justified by the extremist words of Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer or Bernie Sanders, and feel that they are on the right side of history and can righteously beat and kill some folks they don‘t agree with. But since not all liberals behave that way, we must agree that we therefore have to weed out the ones who are crazy enough to pull a trigger on humans and be sure that they are not allowed to arm themselves.
It’s certainly not a surplus of weapons on-campus that is the problem, because there are no longer any rifles or pistols to be found in high schools and likely not in colleges either. In the 1960s, high schools had many weapons used in Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) classes in almost every school in any town. There was rifle fire going all afternoon and into the evening in these high schools as ROTC students fired rifles during target practice on the school firing range. So I would argue that the leftist tendency to make rifles be treated like evil things has created an atmosphere in which rifles have been gotten rid of, and this situation is counter-productive. So for students in my high school, there was gun usage and appropriate training on-campus and in-school all the time, with no misuse of weapons having been reported at all; but that was before liberals got their hands on the subject of guns.
Similarly, young people growing up on farms or ranches were familiar with rifles and pistols, knew how to use them safely, and for these young people the mystique of guns was limited to the practical world of the farm. It seems that only city boys with little exposure to weapons and little or no knowledge of the proper usage of them, were attracted to the killing power of these weapons. When city kids watch the Hollywood depictions of gruesome murders and mass killings in video games, which are just another Hollywood product that destroys young minds, they apparently are attracted to the violence that Hollywood makes to look so masculine and strong. But with all of the political donation money Hollywood gives to leftist politicians in Washington, there is no chance in hell Democrats will ever cut down on the Hollywood money machine and ban their violent products.
So the latest liberal iteration of the phrase “sensible” gun safety rules will help stop the senseless shootings, like Obama’s Affordable Care Act made healthcare “affordable” and like Obamacare make healthcare in America better. We must devise ways to determine which young men are drifting toward violence, and then keep guns out of their hands, or detain them where they can‘t hurt other people.

When seeking a solution and an end to this sort of violent event, we know that outlawing guns will not accomplish the desired end to such disasters, so we need to get politicians out of the decision-making loop and let law enforcement representatives tell our legislators what to do to protect Americans. And we should also consider keeping the Washington swamp, establishment dwellers out of any solution and allow each state to try something different, if they so desire.
In the case of the recent Florida shooting, the FBI reported that they got word of a person with the same name as the suspected shooter posting a statement on social media to the effect that he intended to be a “school shooter”, but the FBI was unable to identify the person who posted the message and their investigation ended there. There is no way that anyone posting to social media cannot be identified quickly, so it seems that police departments and the FBI need better contacts and a little more power to push in order to get YouTube, Google, Twitter, etc. to cooperate with them to identify a person of suspicion. Anyone who gets the FBI or a Sheriff Department’s attention because of indiscrete actions or postings is likely someone that should be questioned and possibly whose background should be further investigated and be watched with greater scrutiny following an investigation.
Anyone who kills at random is mentally off balance and should be denied ownership of a weapon, regardless of how long he’s owned it, and police departments should be where this type of decision is made, in order to keep bad/sick guys from owning guns.
Police response time to such attacks, and even armed teachers on-site at schools, are important considerations to limiting the damage done during a shooting, but by the time such help arrives many lives may have already been lost. The only way to prevent such killings from happening in the first place is to be sure that insane people aren’t allowed to possess guns, and people making inappropriate statements should be carefully watched after questioning.
It’s impossible to ban all guns and still pretend to be an open nation with a constitution, but we can intelligently reduce the mentally at-risk members of our society and be sure they don’t have access to guns.

Sanctuary states and cities also insist on allowing marijuana to be sold and used in their states, which is also in contradiction to federal law. The fact that Democrat politicians in these liberal locales wish to gain the votes of the “cool” youth that want to use these illegal substances, just shows how far removed from reality these liberals politicians are. Adult politicians should be serving the welfare of the entire population, not just the young and emotional members of the community, and should not be offering legal drugs that cloud young minds, all of which is not serving them very well. Who, except liberals, would suggest that our young people need another, legal drug that would help them put up with the stress and reality that’s so difficult for these precious snowflakes to put up with in their everyday life? “Real Life” occurs all the time and one never knows when it will hit them unexpectedly, but at that time of need, they will need personal discipline to get them through the crisis, and not a marijuana helper. Unfortunately “cool” politicians will probably get enough votes from dumbed-down young voters to stay in office in these locations and encourage the illegal things that were put in place to make society function more smoothly.
Berkeley, California is the latest city to jump on this “sanctuary” bandwagon by proposing they become a sanctuary city for marijuana. It’s apparent that the illegal immigration “sanctuary” thing is warping the minds of Californians for them to extend the meaning of the word this far and this inappropriately. Why not propose the city to be a sanctuary for people seeking relief from high taxes, or for people who desire to be left alone by big, intrusive government, or for people who want good jobs so they can better support their families? But to seek the lowest common denominator by proposing sanctuary for marijuana rather than sanctuary from marijuana, shows a total lack of a grasp on reality and what really matters in life.
The sanctuary idea is additionally a bad one because it will sap money and energy from our nation as more and more cities are burdened with unemployed, zoned-out people who too frequently commit serial crimes and depend on welfare from the ever-smaller number of citizens who work and pay taxes. And the idea of seeking uncontrolled access to legal drugs is proof that our young people are out of touch with a world that is largely poor, thirsty and hungry, and unless America can rally our entire population to our national rescue with hard work and creative minds, our nation, too, may sink into the mire of poverty-stricken nations, and at that point, we’ll be doomed.
We’re playing with fire with these extreme, leftist schemes, and our citizens had better wake up quickly, or our cushy lives will end quickly.

A typical example of her critically important work occurred on February 12, 2018. She received a set-up, gotcha question from a reporter in the audience asking if the White House took national security seriously, in that Rob Porter, the White House staffer recently released from duty due to his personal, domestic legal problems, had not yet been fully vetted to handle national security documents. Ms Sanders responded that the White House takes national security issues very seriously and that the FBI was responsible for giving permission to Mr. Porter to handle classified information while awaiting full clearance, not the White House nor the president. Then she went on to tell the questioning reporter that if she were, herself, really interested in national security secrets being compromised and released, she should speak with the other reporters in the press room, because these are the people who release and print leaked classified information for the entire world to read, with neither proper clearance nor permission to do so
I’d like to be the first, that I know of, to nominate Sarah Sanders to run for president in 2024. Not only is she a true conservative who fights the lying, Fake News press every day without tiring, and would be the first woman president, which liberals pretend is important to them, but she was born in Hope, Arkansas, just like good ole Bubba, so she would be Our Republican Woman from Hope.

Rather, it’s American citizens, involved with and subservient to the Democrat Party, who are to blame for these threats to our nation, our sovereignty and our unity. Democrat President Barack Obama illegally and unconstitutionally allowed masses of illegal aliens into our country and allowed them to be rewarded with gifts and benefits, and it was the Democrat Party, desperate for dependants to slavishly vote for their candidates in each election, that has allowed this travesty to continue to the point where our great nation is nearly at the point of civil war.
These fool Democrats must be opposed at every turn and every opportunity, and they must be defeated and kept from office for their great threat and its resulting damage to our Representative Democracy.
Democrats: Americans Being Murdered By Immigrants Is No Big Deal. Americans Kill Americans Don’t They?
Using the illogical thought processes of liberals, one can expect them to soon take the position that our domestic prison population would be within their rights to claim that their civil rights are being denied by allowing illegal aliens to roam free while American citizens are locked up for their crimes. And next, liberals are possibly on the verge of proposing that our prisons be opened up and the prisoners set free so they can compete with illegals for access to Americans to attack. After all, Obama opened our southern border for criminal access, didn’t he?
A perfect example of liberals who refuse to discuss this subject logically and seriously is Juan Williams, who is frequently on Fox’s The Five. When he was asked a week or so ago about the recent killing or a young football star by a repeated illegal offender and about the Kate Steinle murder by another repeat criminal who was here illegally, he made the idiotic argument that Americans are daily killed by other Americans, so it’s obvious that liberals process such news with a dumb-blind over their eyes and we can assume that getting more poor, immigrant people into our nation so they can vote for Democrats is of a much higher level of political importance and priority than protecting Americans.
People like Juan Williams would quickly change their tunes if one of their children was killed by an illegal. But lucky for them, liberals like Mr. Williams live in upper-class neighborhoods where their children are unlikely to come in contact with the scum that liberals insist on exposing the rest of the nation to, by letting them roam free and protecting them from federal laws and punishment. This idiotic situation is tearing our nation apart.

Each of his claims and promises were lies, and he knew they were lies as he practiced delivering each false sentence. All he wanted to do was get this socialist’s dream of a bill passed and he thought his legacy legislation would be in force forever and would become one of the most damaging and destructive legs of his promise to “fundamental transformation of America”.
Well, Fox News recently played a strangely haunting Obama video that looks like it will be as much a premonition as his other lies ending with the word “period”. The video showed Obama being interviewed by Chris Wallace, who had asked him about how closely he monitored FBI investigations, in this case the investigation, sorry, the
“matter“, of Hillary and her illegal email system. Obama told Wallace that he “guaranteed” that Hillary would not be indicted, and he insisted that he never spoke with an FBI Director nor with the Attorney General about any case they were investigating, “I guarantee, full stop, period”. What our lying Obama left out of his statement is that he would, at his pleasure, make contact with FBI investigators and their managers when he wanted his ends to be achieved via the investigation.
So now we see messages from the Page/Strzok investigating team that “POTUS wants to know everything we‘re doing” about their investigation. And now we know that our Barry did have his nose in the Hillary investigation, and one would be a fool to think for a minute that he didn’t know of everything going on with the Trump set-up charges of colluding with Russia, because even if his desire “to know everything we‘re doing“ didn‘t pertain to the Hillary investigation, he was keeping up with an FBI investigation, which he swore he would never do, period. The Trump candidacy was a threat to Obama’s alleged legacy and the continuation of his leftist rule, in the form of the anticipated Hillary administration.
One can safely assume that Obama was a crooked president as well as a liar, and that he dictated the entire illegal plot in both the Hillary email “matter“ and the Trump persecution, PERIOD! Obama was tripped up and foiled in his attempts to rule the nation through the Hillary administration by the American citizens who rejected his big-government rule-of-personality and voted the Washington establishment darling Hillary, back to her mansion in New York.

They are now in the process of trying to explain why the FISA court was given only an incomplete summary of their suspicions about Trump’s fictitious dealings with Russia prior to the 2016 election, and why they depended on a document that had been written and paid for by anti-Trump people like Hillary Clinton. They are now in the Nixonian position of having to cover up their own crimes, that were committed in order to convict Trump of his non-existent crimes.

The preacher Tucker was speaking with said that “gender limits us” in our thinking about God, so he wants for there to be a ban on saying “him” when referring to God. In my personal opinion, I believe that what increasingly “limits us” in this over-politicized and politically correct world is the total involvement of leftists in everything we do. Why is it more appropriate and liberating to think of God as a unicorn than as a man? Why would God being thought of as a woman be better? Why is gender such an touchy subject to liberals? After all, when bearded men are praised by liberals for thinking of themselves as gay, Thai women, what sense does any of this leftist insistence on political correctness make?
It’s not gender expression that liberated the western mind and allowed humans to prosper and seek wisdom, it was the end to religious control over vast populations and the end to the inquisition that liberated minds. And now we get these religious idiots living among the politically correct Washington swamp telling us to give up our hopelessly mundane habit of thinking about God as being a man? I would suggests that it’s the liberals making these demands that need to free their minds and allow them to think bit more freely and not be dictated to by the latest Washington fashion.
This kind of political talk sounds much like Barack Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” pledge as he began his first year in office. It turned out that his efforts in this “transformation” led to many edicts from Washington that clear thinking would identify as dumping our society down a dark hole. For example, Obama sought not to defeat ISIS but to merely “contain” them as this evil bunch of men killed and raped across vast regions, apparently at the pleasure of Obama; Obama illegally opened our southern border to all immigrants, leading to many crimes against American citizens and an increasing number of people being here who hate America and came here only for the goodies liberals would hand out; sanctuary cities, and now sanctuary states, allow liberal mayors and governors to defy federal laws and protect criminals that are preying on other immigrants; the FBI plotted with the Democrat candidate for president in 2016 to keep the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, out of office, and then began corrupt and prohibited procedures to get him impeached using totally false documents to do so and using these false documents to convince the FISA court to spy on Trump’s campaign. More recently Nancy Pelosi lied that lowering taxes would cause Armageddon and sink our economy, when any thinking person knows that exact opposite is what will happen when people are freed from government control over their lives. I’m sick of intrusive and lying politics being always in my face and in my way.
So why would anyone be surprised when preachers lecture us that we will be unlimited in our thinking when we think of God as being a green, Japanese chipmunk?

Democrats take a leap of imagination by stating that believing that the top investigators of the FBI plotted to keep Donald Trump out of the White House, which we know they did, would make America open to a terrorist attack because Americans would no longer have faith in the FBI and would not report suspicious actions to them if they see bad characters, thereby inviting a terrorist attack, yada, yada. The truth is that Americans can at present doubt the impartiality of our FBI because of the way they conducted their passive investigation of the known Hillary email crimes, but are attacking Trump with both barrels blazing because of a bought-and-paid-for document hired by Hillary and the DNC.
What the Democrat’s heavily partisan position fails to admit is that if Hillary and the FBI had not bought the totally made up Dossier and then presented this false document to the FISA court, there would not have been a Nunes Memo that exposed the left’s political collusion to derail a political opponent’s campaign.
Hillary bought the Dossier, and the FBI, knowing the Dossier was false and politically motivated, presented it to the FISA court, which set of judges took the FBI’s word for its truth and accuracy, and then spied on Trump and his staff. This was a totally concocted, illegal happening, like you’d read about in a fiction novel about how the Hitler and Stalin governments, by persecuting and investigating their political opponents, maintained power before and after World War II.
Then, based on this ill-gotten, court-approved spying, Democrats made the fictitious charge of Trump being involved in collusion with Russia, and then the new Trump Justice Department hired Mueller to make his independent probe, which after fifteen months has found no evidence of any Trump collusion with Russia nor with any other nation.
The Democrats started all of this with a lie, as detailed in their Dossier, and now continue the lie, just like Richard Nixon did during the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, in order to cover up the Obama administration’s illegal surveillance of the Trump campaign team, while blaming Trump for all of the mess that has resulted, with Trump being the only innocent party to this entire, shabby story.

But now it’s been determined that during and following the Obama administration, departments of our own national government, represented by Barack Obama and branches of his administration (in this case the DOJ, the State Department and the FBI) all colluded to keep an opposing party’s candidate for president out of office by employing one of the most sensitive and protected powers of government, the FISA court and its ability to authorize the investigations of American citizens for foreign intelligence issues. These branches of the executive branch of government in a Democrat administration were active parties attempting to deny Trump the presidency. One thinks that one should be able to expect the guilty party in such a fiasco to admit their guilt once that guilt has been exposed as being the most chilling political scandal in American history.
But America’s Democrat party shows no shame nor acknowledgement of overstepping the bounds of propriety and the law at plotting to deny Trump his run for the presidency and to be seated once he had won the election, and they see no parallel between the staged elections held in Russia and other dictatorial governments around the world, and what they did in the last election. One can only guess that their success in rigging the primary election against Bernie Sanders made the Hillary team feel frisky and they thought that taking Trump to the cleaners would be as easy as beating an old Socialist like Sanders.
The fact that Democrats are still on the Trump-is-the-devil warpath even after these recent discoveries of mal- and misfeasance by the Obama administration, and that they are unable to express any regret or shame for their political crimes, should tell us a lot about their sincerity and their anger when they turn their guns on a Republican slip-up or a slight mis-statement. And this full-on attack with their anti-Trump vitriol, as opposed to expressing some self-inspection as these serious charges are brought against them, tells us that there is a fine line separating open, representative government from total dictatorship. Democrats show no sign of understanding where this line starts and stops. If they had indeed made their lame charges against Trump stick, one fears there would not be a need for another election in 2020, because the rightful owners of power in America, at least in their own minds, would already hold that power. And if one is unable to feel shame for obvious corruption, then one will have no incentive to make changes to oneself and assure that such political crimes never occur again.
The very people who illegally and improperly beat up on Trump by using the full investigative power of the federal government are so hate-filled that they will allow no adjustment to their hateful goals of removing the Republican sitting president and are incapable of recognizing and admitting his many successes during his first year in office.
Lesson learned: Leftists must be feared and defeated and kept from positions of power in all levels of government in America. Whether they are setting up illegal sanctuary states, illegal sanctuary cities, denying Americans their constitutional right to select and buy their own healthcare or are purchasing documents wholly created from fiction to use as evidence against their political opponents, as the famous Dossier was, they can no longer be trusted with the power to govern, as we saw proven last Friday with the release of the Nunes Memo.

Barack Obama started this line of political BS when he stated that deporting illegal aliens is “not who we are”. For Mr. Obama’s information, illegal aliens have always been deported, but not since our Obama illegally and unconstitutionally opened our borders for anyone to enter, and then created an emotional crisis with his DACA edict, and Democrats are now making illogical hay out of it. This is especially harmful to America and unfair to American citizens because emotion is a dangerous thing, especially when many of the emoters have bad designs for America and plot to get a few more million uneducated, anti-American aliens north of the border who are willing to carry the Mexican flag and demand more goodies from government at tax-payer expense. Democrats plan on these new citizens to immediately vote Democrat, and that would end America as we currently know it.
And of course Nancy Pelosi took up the political line recently when she called Donald Trump a racist after he offered more than the Democrats demanded in the DACA talks on this issue, which has accompanied the looming budget negotiations. Trump should retaliate by commenting on Pelosi’s Fake Views and stress that she is a common Democrat liar, chuckle at her expense, and move on with his critical work for America.
Expanding the Democrat “who we are” misrepresentation a little further, we never saw the DOJ or the FBI involved in scandals attempting to keep a duly elected president from taking office, until the Obama administration. That kind of practice was never allowed and was not “who we were” prior to the Obama administration. We used to assume that the Democrat party respected the flag and the nation enough to stand for the national anthem and to show respect for our military personnel and for the police officers that risk their lives daily to protect our property and our lives, until the Democrats took the side of the Black Lives Matter group and started celebrating the killing of police officers. The Constitutionally protected national press used to report only the news and tell the truth in their stories until Donald Trump became President, and now we get daily False News stories written for the sole purpose of embarrassing and unseating the sitting president. The Democrat party used to serve the interests of the American citizens who elected them to office, until Democrats decided to form sanctuary cities to protect people, who are here illegally, from the laws the federal government attempts to enforce. Democrats used to believe in hard-working citizens who supported their families and paid their taxes, until they discovered that they could have more assured electoral success if they kept poor people poor and on welfare and handed out the occasional crumbs to keep them voting Democrat in the next election.
America is no longer “who we really were”, because Democrats rewrite history every time they open their mouths and try to convince the uninformed among us that America has always been a socialist, racist nation without laws and with open borders.
Democrats are solely responsible for the destruction of this once great nation and for limiting the future of America and of America’s citizens by lying about “who we are“ and reducing “who we might become” under future Democrat, unconstitutional rule.
