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.

Our beloved former president was so desirous of keeping the liberals in big colleges and universities in the leftist Democrat camp that he took over the industry of granting college loans, thereby assuring that colleges could charge as much as they wanted to for their courses and the government loan agency would approve the loan and assure that colleges could increase their course prices, grow their staffs and give professors and administrators fat pay increases, all on the backs of unsuspecting students.
In the world of college loans made by private lenders there was necessarily competition for the loans and these private lenders would likely have recognized the growing and excessive costs of college and the mounting value of the loans being approved, and would also likely have sounded an alarm. Obama was indignant about the subject of competition and the idea of controlling costs and making a profit, and rejected such old fashioned ideas as being inapplicable to student loans.
The same subject arose recently when Maxine Waters called several banking CEOs before her committee and asked them why they weren’t doing more to help students to be able to limit and control their student debt levels.
Ms. Waters was unaware that Obama had taken the student loan industry under his wing and she looked like the fool she is when the CEOs told her they had not given out any student loans for over nine years. In other words, the subject that she was trying to pin on the private industry banking community was solely the fault of the government agency that Obama edicted would henceforth be charged with awarding student loans.
Although Ms. Waters was made aware that the government was responsible for the outrageous level of student indebtedness that could limit their future economic welfare for many years, she dropped the subject immediately when she learned it was the fault of government, and that it was the left’s hero, the man who swore to “fundamentally transform America”, who put this fiasco into motion. When private industry is at fault there are always leftists who will use every tool at their disposal, including the threat of imprisonment and punitive regulations to hurt a company’s profitability, in an attempt to get the rogues under control. But when government is hurting the very nation and the citizens it is its duty to protect, the subject is covered up and forgotten ASAP.

Now old Joe is being criticized by his fellow leftists for the treatment he gave Anita Hill during the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings in 1991. So what does old Joe do when the radical feminists attack him? He begs forgiveness and apologizes for the things, real or imagined, that he said and did during the Thomas hearings.
What is forgotten in all of this idiotic leftist fretting and complaining is that Clarence Thomas, a black lawyer and judge of some repute, was nominated by President George H.W. Bush to the Supreme Court, and was being attacked in an attempt to have his nomination defeated by liberals who were using Anita Hill as their battering ram in an attempt to keep a black conservative off of the Supreme Court bench.
It appears that feminists want silk-glove treatment for themselves when they try to ruin a man’s career by inserting themselves into the political fray. All Joe Biden did was to subject Hill to an inquiry that made her actually have to defend herself and her baseless and inappropriate charges against Clarence Thomas. Hill should be apologizing to Clarence Thomas and Joe Biden instead of expecting Biden to beg forgiveness for doing the job a Senator is expected to do when a Supreme Court nominee is being destroyed in public.
The Anita Hill event was the precursor to the Kavanaugh hearings where we were supposed to believe the girl’s testimony, with no questioning of her being allowed and no expecting her to produce any evidence at all to support her charges, with the assumption that the man is automatically guilty as charged.
If Biden had any cojones he’d tell the feminists to stick their criticism of him where the sun don’t shine and ask them why they were so anxious to indict Mr. Thomas, himself a protected black man, based on the unsubstantiated charges against him. As Mr. Thomas asserted during the hearings, he felt that he was being strung up in an electronic lynching engineered by Democrats, and they owe him an apology for the mistreatment they heaped on him during that event.
But our Joey doesn’t want to offend the girls and expect them to abide by the same rules men have to live by. If Mr. Biden’s actions when confronted by nasty feminists is so wimpy that he’d quickly surrender to their diatribe, I fear how he would react to real threats by the likes or Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong-Un in the real world of life and death.

Why does Joe Biden over-act and over-react when things happen to him? There were many times when he over-reacted to something Barack Obama said or did that made him look odd and out-of-control for a period of time.
Why does Joe Biden always say “man” at the end of sentences, as in “I’m a serious candidate, man”. Does he not realize how falsely hip and at the same time out-of-date that this mode of speaking makes him sound?
Why does Joe Biden so often become personal, phony, confidential and hands-on with black people? He always calls blacks “man” and performs the 1970s multiple-soul handshakes with them that reminds one of some of the lesser television programs of past decades. And how about using the word “bro” as a greeting? It’s as though Biden learned how to show pretend respect to blacks in the 1970s by seeming to undermine his own superior social standing, and he never learned to accept that blacks are now fully up-to-speed on equality, but old Joe is lagging in this area a bit.
Why does Joe Biden say “think about it” all the time? It’s probably because he’s such a slow thinker and so dumb that his handlers have to tell him to “think about it” every time he comes up with an inappropriate idea, so he feels he has to tell everyone else to “think about it” as a normal response to their ideas, even though the average person thinks very well for themselves without having to be told to.
Old Lunch Bucket Joe is a fool who has become wealthy on a government salary, and he served faithfully during the eight years of the corrupt, America-hating, Obama administration, so I suppose we can excuse this go-along-to-get-along man from any culpability in the many crimes of the Obama era. And anyone who believes that Biden requested that Obama NOT endorse his candidacy is only fooling himself.

In the same relationship, with Mayor Pete being the wife in this homosexual marriage, would his election to the presidency, given conflicting pronouns to the contrary, make him to be the first female to become president?
In the world of sexual self-identity and allowing people to identify to be whomever they wish to be in all regards, Democrats create situations that muddy the political and social waters every time they open their mouths.

There would not be any hand-wringing discussions underway about Trump innocence or guilt, and Robert Mueller would not be ordered to report to the Democrats in the House of Representatives to give testimony, and Mr. Mueller himself would not be the target of leftist press harassment outside his church on Easter Sunday, if the report had indeed indicted President Trump as the radical leftists have stated. If the Mueller report had clearly stated that the Trump candidacy had colluded and if it had clearly found that President Trump attempted to halt and interfere with the Mueller probe in any way, Democrats in the House would already have voted to impeach and they would be pushing the Senate to convict. But these things have not happened because the report did not find against Trump, even in a round-about way.
For example, the leftist press claims that the Mueller report found that Trump is likely guilty of obstruction of justice because the report stated that the investigators could not prove that he didn’t obstruct, although no criminal investigator/prosecutor will ever attempt to prove innocence. Their job is for prove guilt only, and the report clearly stated that it was unable to prove any guilt. So our leftist radicals are left with weak reasoning and insulting arguments in their attempts to get the nation riled up over the most exhaustive and expensive criminal investigation our nation has ever contrived.
So the Trump-hating Deep State has taken the report that they’ve anxiously awaited for two years in anticipation of its indictment of our president, misread its findings, misstated it conclusions and is now embarking on a new anti-Trump tirade as though the Mueller report never happened.
Are Democrats demented fools or what?
But now that the nation of America has been so successful that it has set new records for the entire world in the form of individual citizen wealth, personal freedom and comfort, it is being forced by progressive Democrats to allow people from inferior nations to come here in wholesale numbers in order to escape mistreatment and poverty from their native countries. Of course, Democrats are also interested in forming an infinite voter base to keep themselves in power for decades to come, which may also enter into their push to establish sanctuary cities and demand that our borders be thrown open to all who wish to enter our nation regardless of health, education, criminal background, ability to speak our language, and regardless of any ability to hold and keep a job.
When the people that the Democrats are so anxious to welcome to our nation resort to waving their native flags in protest against perceived injustices in the America they just entered, and when those illegal entrants commit repeat crimes and join organizations dedicated to undermining our nation and its laws, it’s time to review exactly what Democrats are trying to accomplish with their radical ideas and their un-American and unconstitutional policies. I think it’s fair to assume that Democrats are not keeping an eye on the future prosperity of America nor on the welfare of American citizens, but are selfishly taking short term losses in an attempt to hold long-term elected power, all to the detriment of Americans who have worked all their lives to earn good livings for themselves and their children, and these same citizens are seeing all of their plans dissolve as waves of invaders enter our borders and slowly change our entire way of living and our entire way of life.

Bernie Sanders, our resident Socialist, frowning, curmudgeon, was filmed in the 1970’s smiling brightly as he honeymooned in the Soviet Union where he felt like he was among like-minded friends, is now pretending that he hates Communism and only wants to get proper services to Americans who have been so mistreated by their backward government.
Beto O’Rourke recently asked his youthful audience what they wanted him to propose to do as president and he promised to do what they wanted as soon as he was elected. Now there’s a purposeful, thoughtful politician for you. And he probably would try to implement everything the young people want whether it was a good idea or not. He’ll go as far left as necessary to gain power, period.
Elizabeth Warren, the woman whose wealth came from indebted, over-borrowed college students, whose cushy Harvard professorship came at the expense of minority individuals for whom her pretense of having Indian blood was reserved, is of course concerned by the indebtedness of those students and the joblessness of actual people of Indian blood, whose job she stole.
Candidates Harris, Booker and the other wealthy Democrat candidates, are very concerned with the poverty that the Democrat party has imposed on people of all races unfortunate enough to listen to and believe their lies these last 20 years. But we hear no real solutions coming from these candidates’ mouths, except for their promises of infinite giveaways and big-government programs that will cost trillions of dollars and will collapse our economy, and perhaps the occasional proposal that we import millions of additional Central American caravan occupants as a way of fixing our national need for more poor, uneducated, unhealthy, Spanish-speaking people that our nation is faced with.
Then there’s the newly elected governor of the sanctuary state of California, Gavin Newsom, who quickly after election flew off to San Salvador to advise that population of the benefits of coming to America and enjoying the pleasant way of life we (used to) have here, while the state he left behind is crumbling and being inundated with human feces, druggy needles, homeless camp sites, disease, impoverishment and over-taxed citizens, and Newsom will not take one step to prevent illegals from entering his state.
Are Democrats taking these drastic, unprecedented positions to attract young, starry-eyed voters in an attempt to get favorable cable TV coverage from a corrupt press corps, or do they actually believe the nonsense and foolish drivel they spout each and every day of their lives?

Add to this idiocy by considering that fact that the main leader of the Socialist Green New Deal takeover of America is a self-made millionaire named Bernie Sanders, who has made his fortune in America and its Capitalist system, which can make anyone wealthy if they just work a little at it. The fool Sanders, and all of the Democrat candidates running for the presidency in 2020, are unified in proposing policies that are certain to destroy the American economic system to which they owe their own personal wealth. How stupid can people be?
More recently we have the bizarre situation of Democrats insisting that illegal aliens be allowed to enter the United States at will and settle in various cities throughout the nation, with no health checks, no criminal records checks, no English-speaking requirements and no skills requirements. But when President Trump suggests that all illegal aliens flowing into our nation be sent directly to sanctuary cities and be forced to stay in these locations who pretend to love and want them, liberals get all upset and begin dreaming up theories as to why this perfectly genius idea would be illegal, as if illegality matters to Democrats, and moan and wail that this would swamp their already failing Democrat-led cities with unwanted invaders that they can‘t afford to accept.
Democrats are predictable in doing things that are expensive and detrimental to our society, but perhaps the most disturbing thing about them is that their actions are contrary to the welfare of American citizens and to the future benefit of foreign invaders as well, and the fools can’t see the harm they do to everyone.

Not only was this stupid woman trying to blame these private business owners for the punitive loans to which private citizens too frequently voluntarily commit themselves, but her own government was responsible for forcing a situation in which only one monopolistic lender was permitted to make these loans, and that sole lender was her own government, and she had no idea this concentration of power had happened during the Obama administration.
But this idiot woman, after learning that the loans she so hates were given by her own government, didn’t have the courage, the presence of mind nor the intelligence to call the directors of the big-government student loan agencies and ask how they planned help the indebted students, because, in the minds of radical Democrats like Ms. Watrers, the government never hurts people, only private corporations hurt people. So this entire line of questioning was quickly dropped due to a lack of interest by the House Committee and its lame-brained chairwoman.
Big government attempts to give the impression that they care for the rights and treatment of citizens whenever private corporations, seeking to make a profit, are the culprits. But when it’s the government itself causing a citizen discomfort, all attention to the issue seems to evaporate.
As is typical of Democrats like Maxine Waters, her committee hearing was conducted not to solve a problem and help students avoid deep debt when they graduate from college, it was rather to punish some non-Socialist American banking companies and threaten them with harsh regulations if they would not agree to lower their fees and provide student loans for a lower price. But having been shown to be a fool and not knowing the subject that she is charged with responsibility for, Ms. Waters allowed the subject to be dropped and nothing was resolved by her questions nor by the banking CEO’s waste of time and effort after being ordered to report to her hearing.
Ms. Waters, in her waste-time grilling of the bankers, could have mentioned at least three things that could help students graduate with less debt: 1) The government should get out of the business of being a monopoly in the student loan business and allow private companies to introduce competition and lower costs into the industry. The enormous levels of debt that college students graduate with has largely occurred since Barack Obama single-handedly took monopolistic of the entire industry, and having the government back out of the loan industry could perhaps allow students to accumulate less debt. 2) Colleges should be challenged to be more competitive with their tuition charges and should be encouraged to cut their costs so they could charge students less to attend college. 3) Colleges should be challenged to underwrite all or part of the costs of their tuition so students don’t have to go bankrupt just to get through college. Many colleges and universities have billions of dollars of money stashed away and it’s shameful that they don’t share their wealth with students, in line with the socialist, anti-Capitalist principles their professors preach to their students.
The pity is that Ms. Waters makes a fool of herself every time she opens her mouth and she’s not smart enough to know it.

So when Bernie and AOS gave us their shrill prediction that the end of the world would be here in twelve years (actually it’s now only eleven and a half years because six months have already passed, and I’ve seen no temperature spikes or weather occurrences that concern me so far) most sensible people took this warning as the kook, Shamanic, religious freak blast we’ve seen so many times in the past as these nuts prepare to meet their maker. But since today’s Democrats have no traditional belief in an all-powerful God, I don’t know exactly what these weirdos believe in nor what they fear.
This bunch of leftists are somewhat different from the Harmonic Convergence fears of a few years ago. This crowd is high on the seductive religion of politics and power, and they claim that environmental science is the source of their wisdom, although the science of even simple weather forecasts is an inexact one. So how can one predict the end of the earth in twelve years when next week’s temperature prediction often deviates from the scientific forecast made by “scientists” using expensive instruments and technology?
Another obstacle to believing this latest Warming farce is that real science is built on verifiable, repeatable results, whereas the current predictions of earthly doom come from computer modeling, and we know that computers only produce data based on what was input in the first place, and this modeling is exactly what environmentalists are using as their source of information. It’s just another case of garbage-in, garbage-out. That’s not a firm base on which to mount a life-changing set of rules for an entire nation to live or die by.
Perhaps the Bernie/ AOS people got the latest predictions of global destruction from the ever-reliable Al Gore, the father of all of this nonsense. But old Al predicted the melting of the earth’s polar ice caps some years ago, and that hasn’t happened yet, nor has his prediction of the demise of the Polar Bears become fact. And along with Gore and his nut-job predictions, is Ted Danson, who predicted the death of the Oceans about twenty years ago, and Paul Ehrlich who, in the 1960s, predicted total global war due to a lack of food; neither of which predictions has come to pass. And not only have these Warming/Change advocates not apologized for their past mistakes and lies, but now they are doubling down and coming again for our money and our liberties with this new 12-year scam.
So forgive me if I don’t buy this latest load of crap coming from radical Democrats who have proven to have no concern for the lives of the average American out in fly-over country, but want total power to tax, control and destroy the economy and take away the liberties of the greatest nation on the planet. But even if one tries to ignore them, they WILL NOT go away. They must be defeated at the ballot box if we are to rid ourselves of this filthy vermin.

In today’s ultra-left environment with too much illegal drug-flow across our borders and too may illegal aliens accompanying them, we should use Mrs. Reagan’s approach to these problems and tell our legislators we want a stop to these issues. And voters must take a “Just Say NO” attitude to the tendencies of radical leftists whose ideas will bury our nation.
NO to illegal drugs. NO to illegal aliens. NO to dope-smoking Democrat candidates. NO to free healthcare. NO to free college. NO to socialism and big-government proposals. NO to eliminating the Electoral College. NO to packing the Supreme Court. NO to allowing children and illegal aliens to vote in presidential elections.
It’s up to adults to say NO to children when they do things that will harm themselves, thereby protecting them from their own worst impulses, so it’s a good thing to say NO to Democrats for their childish, harmful impulses in things political.
But it will also be helpful if the nation said a resounding YES to a border-control wall, lower taxes and fewer regulations, all of which are just some of the ideas of President Trump. In of these select instances, Just Say YES!

The George Washington University Argument Over The Moniker “Colonials”, Is Based In American Student Ignorance
I feel certain that the GWU students don’t realize that the residents of England’s colony in America fought against the concept of colonization, and the students’ opposition to what their protest group pretends to be offended by is why the Declaration of Independence was created and signed by the leaders of the colony, in a bid for their independence from England and their opposition to being a colony.
France, Spain and England formed colonies in North America and throughout the world, so the colony thing was nothing new on the face of the earth. But under the leadership of George Washington and Thomas Jefferson and many others, the new, independent nation of the United States of America was formed from a foreign-run colony and became the most wealthy and free nation the world has ever seen. Today’s very easily offended, well-fed and comfortable students seem to resent that they were born into such wealth that they can attend an exclusive university like George Washington and get a great education. But it also appears that today’s students have no idea how precious a college education is and how blessed they are to be living in America, where they are able to protest the most childish things at the drop of a hat and have their juvenile opinions taken seriously.
In an article published March 7, 2019, by Fox News, author Benno Kass quotes one GWU student who seems to be confusing the meaning of colonialism with the idea of a superior and more advanced civilization replacing a less-advanced one, when she bemoaned the fact that native tribes in North America were replaced by the more scientifically advanced Europeans, and that the ways of the native tribes gave way to the invading Europeans. The whole idea of Darwin’s “survival of the fittest” is what happened with the demise of the Indians in North America.
As happens all over the world, weaker, less advanced populations, and those unable or unwilling to change when faced with a mightier force, will always become losers. And if the student who resents the fact that American Indians lost their land to the European expansion, which led directly to the prosperous society in which this student finds herself today where she is well-fed, housed and clothed, then she needs to hasten her elite education, get a high-paying job, and begin, herself personally, buying up homes and real estate in the Maryland and Virginia area and donating those properties, again at her own expense, to the native tribes who are still established along the East coast, and maybe this will make her feel better about George and Thomas and the marvelous things they did that has assured our pleasant lives in America today.
But I will also hasten to relieve the conscience of this suffering student by reminding her that most American Indian tribes fought each other for land all the time, so what the Europeans did in North American is nothing new on the American, nor the world stage, again referring back to Darwin‘s survival of the fittest. Many of the Indian tribes in North America have become vastly wealthy living on tribal lands where they run their casinos and hotels at a great profit, so it‘s not as though the tribes haven’t received some significant compensation for the suffering of their forebears.
But the opposite of prosperity can also be found in too-numerous, government sponsored tribal reservations where Indian populations live in poverty and lead less than ideal lives. However, liberal college students have to recognize that these unfortunate people are where they are because of American liberal Democrats and their policy of establishing dependent, subservient populations, like those in Democrat sanctuary cities, where people can live on government handouts, stay poor and unhappy, and it’s all due to Democrat, “progressive” policies and Democrats’ constant search for dependant people to vote for them each election day, in exchange for a free meal and a dilapidated place to live.

I personally see nothing in Biden that would lead me to entrust him with American policy nor the defense of this nation, but that’s because I’m old fashion enough to have faith in the constitution and to believe that public servants should be truthful and seek protection of the citizens of the United States first, and not propose that we take possession of the world’s starving, sick legions who want to come here.
What we see in the current criticism of Biden is exactly what we saw with the kerfuffle over the appointment of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. The same bunch of Democrats, led by the leftist press and their never-ending hit pieces, induced women to come forward and register complaints from years ago against a public figure whom they don’t agree with politically and who they see as an opponent, and they present the same old sexual claims of mistreatment and abuse in an attempt to defeat the unfortunate man. Whether the accused is Republican or Democrat, the current radical-left Democrats now in charge of the party will attack that opponent without mercy, because they care only about winning and pushing America ever-more to the left, politically.
But if you are one of the current radical left Democrat personalities, like Virginia Lieutenant Governor Justin Fairfax, who has been believably accused by two women of having recently raped them, the press takes a hands-off attitude and lets the charges go without any real attention, in hopes that the issue will just go away, so the radical left movement can continue its encroachment on the lives of Americans.
Old Lunchbox Joe should have known that he’s too far right in a far-left party to get any support from the glamorous leaders of the party, but they hope that he learns his lesson soon and backs out of contention for the nomination so they don’t have to bring all guns blazing to get rid of him. If Biden considers what Democrats have done to President Trump for the past two years, with no evidence at all of his having done anything illegal or improper, maybe he’ll soon realize that he has no chance of winning against such fierce, nasty people, who will never accept a defeat from anyone.
