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.

On the other hand, in the year of the Wuhan, it’s a bit fearful when entering a bank lobby or the neighborhood convenience store these days, because everyone is wearing a mask. One can only imagine that one day we’ll hear two or more masked criminals simultaneously demanding money from the facility’s cash register, then have a gun fight between the robbers, and finally have the police shoot innocent masked customers simply because you can’t tell a customer from a crook any more. In the twenty-first century, we’re finding that the edicts of our government are re-creating the old Keystone Cops movie routines into our daily lives.
Masks are intended to either frighten someone, amuse someone or to hide the facial identity of a person doing something illegal or embarrassing, and the wide usage of masks in the year of the Chinese Flu is none of these things. Surgery is another use of a mask that ninety-nine percent of people will never be seen in, but the surgeon wears a mask to protect the ailing patient, not the surgeon.
Masks make people look ridiculous, but are too often viewed as being stylish at this point in time; it’s kind of like wearing trendy, over-the-top clothing or pre-ripped jeans. Whether the garments are really cool or not, being stylish is at least the intent of the wearer. But masks, which are becoming a de rigueur fashion statement in America, make even pretty people look like fools who are slaves to the fashion of the moment.
But it does no good to tell people that recycling their own CO2 within their masks and blocking fresh air from entering their lungs is not a healthy practice, so we’ll just have to be understanding and polite when we see the mask and glove combination out in public. I suppose that we shouldn’t be surprised when hairnets and booties are at some point added to the mask/glove combo and become the style among the smart-set. One fears that before long, in order to keep up with leftist attire trends, we’ll be wearing a white, pointed, KKK hood, like Virginia Governor Ralph Northam wears when he‘s not in black-face. One cannot be too safe, nor too politically correct.
We cannot escape the notion that the mask thing is political and that going masked is trendy but if you want to inhale your own recycled breath while outside in clean air on a beautiful Spring day, be my guest.

The Chinese government is the most racist nation on earth, with all other nationalities being considered inferior to themselves. They imprison or kill Muslims and those of the Uyghur (Weiger) religion, imprison their own citizens to do slave labor for their industries, perform medical procedures on prisoners in order to sell body parts on the open market, and American Democrats love them.
But just the fact that the Chinese added to the misery and deaths of thousands of people around the globe with the coronavirus is justification for the criticism of the Chinese government.
One makes a clear distinction between the Communist Chinese government and people of Chinese descent living outside China who are simply trying to make a living, just like the rest of us. Those individuals of Chinese nationality are creative, intelligent and hard working, as are the general population of China, who are forced to live and try to be prosperous and happy as civilians in the Communist regime of Red China. It’s the dictatorial Communist leadership that is the problem, and they deserve to be condemned for their murderous actions.
Those Democrat politicians who attack people who criticize Communists are defenders of the outrages of Communism/Nazism, and that’s exactly what people like Kamala Harris are doing in their politically correct posturing, when they take the side of a rhetorical Chinese “minority“, who are actually the majority on the Chinese mainland. American Democrats love statistically “minority” individuals who can be identified as an abused underclass so our lying, Democrat, political class can pretend to defend them against the majority of us supposed racist Americans, whom Democrats believe hate everyone but ourselves.
American leftists are so wrapped up defending people-of-color and anyone of a “minority” identity, that they are unable to recognize a new Hitler or Stalin when they see one parading as a ruler of a sick Communist nation.

Then along came Westinghouse, Edison, Ford and Colt and more intricate, scientific and complicated products were made, which made everyone’s lives more pleasant, made them all more wealthy, and enhanced the personal liberty of the entire world. And Capitalism was off and running.
But before long certain people began to put roadblocks in the paths of the new factories, first with strikes, then with labor unions, and finally with federal labor laws. But factories remained on-line and everyone continued to prosper, and for the first time in history the average working person could invest and save money, not have to work from dawn to dusk for a bare subsistence and they could take a pleasant vacation now and then.
Karl Marx was a very opinionated man who didn’t like Capitalism, and vigorously attacked it without doing any permanent damage to successful, well-run factories, although he did accomplish the impoverishment of many nations and destroyed the lives of millions of people who were unfortunate enough to live in fascist, Socialist or Communist countries. But history did not take into consideration the devious, wealthy, comfortable, and powerful American Democrats, who in 2020 convinced President Trump, who had overseen the most robust economic expansion in the history of the world, to kill all of the improvements he had made to the lives of American citizens, when they blind-sided him with fabricated “models” of viral destruction from a Chinese disease that was impacting America. These “models” convinced the president that millions of Americans would die if we did not isolate all people and lockdown all businesses that depended on personal contact with customers.
The American government scientists and doctors who presented President Trump with the predictions of death and destruction previously unseen in this nation, were relying on concerns of public health and the benefit to the nation when they presented their case and convinced the president of the need for a shutdown. Unfortunately, he took their good-faith advice.
But one suspects that this lockdown advice was not made in good faith at all. This was just a new, radical left attempt to resume where Karl Marx had left off, and was intended to put America in its place as a not-so-great nation. It was only much later that we learned that the coronavirus was the least deadly virus we’ve ever seen, but the damage was already done, with many businesses bankrupt and many personal homes repossessed, and an entire nation on the brink.

The temperature last summer was the same as all of the previous summers of my life, with no increase in the hottest days, and the coronavirus has killed only a fraction of the predicted deaths they said would accompany the Wuhan flu. But President Trump’s CDC advisors convinced him to destroy our economy by locking down nearly everything, and he took what he thought was good-faith advice in order to protect the nation. But I don’t think their advice was anywhere near good-faith; I think it was all political lies they fed the president.
Nevertheless, we are asked to accept the leftist lie of global warming, and we were convinced that locking down all industry and commanding many peoples’ personal lives to captivity, plus being continuously protected with masks and gloves, would be the only way we could save our nation from certain death and the end of our society altogether.
So, understanding all of that, it’s refreshing to learn that these same fools, who caused the impoverishment of millions of Americans with their lockdown, are now, based on a new and improved “model”, predicting a resurgence of the Wuhan death virus this coming cold and flu season, and on into next year. This prediction, of course, requires us to stay inside and wear these ridiculous masks and gloves everywhere we go, and it forces businesses to further hurt their profitability by serving fewer customers and taking expensive measures to protect the public from the virus while in their establishments, and these actions are taken for the lamest, lease deadly virus we’ve ever seen, which is survived by ninety-nine percent of the people who contract it.
I say throw the bums and their models out and let’s get back to living well and prosperously once again, and regaining the personal liberty that Democrats have taken from us.

Now comes the coronavirus and we hear the shocking news that the virus may be adapting and changing, which such things always do, and the political left, once again, fears for the lives of millions of Americans in this unprecedented atmosphere. So are Democrats now claiming that we need a fresh national lockdown to further destroy jobs and weaken our stock market? They certainly are.
Forget that the coronavirus is the weakest and least harmful virus we’ve ever seen, with a less than one-percent death rate, except in New York and New Jersey, which are both Democrat-run states, so what can you expect? Add to this staggering statistic, the fact that Democrats are now swooning about President Trump telling a news gathering this week that he is taking hydroxychloroquine as a preventive effort to ward off the virus, and you’d have thought the roof fell in on the attendees to this event, for the very simple and transparent announcement of his use of a long-certified and often-prescribed drug. Isn’t it just rich that the political left accuses President Trump of being careless for taking this prescription, and the leftist press moans and groans that the president should be more cautious in the use of drugs, as though the pot-loving, baby killing left has any room to talk about caution in ingesting foreign substances.
And isn’t it also comforting to know that Democrats and the leftist press, who have spent three years trying to get rid of our president for being a traitor, for being unfit for the job and for being a colluder with Russia, are now so concerned about his health and wellbeing and about his ability to perform in the Oval Office? Ever since he won the presidential election in 2016 they’ve been trying to impeach him, and now that he’s taking what they consider to be a radical and dangerous drug, they love him and want to protect him. What a pile of hypocrites.
Democrats want no end to the false fear of hydroxychloroquine, hoping that the virus will spread and that we may be able to celebrate another national lockdown next year, or maybe during the cold and flu season this winter, an event which could end our comfortable, prosperous capitalist society completely this time around, thereby making each of us a ward of the state for every meal we eat and for a place to sleep each night.

None of the leftist crimes listed above received any punishment that I’m aware of. The leftist news cable channels were always careful to remind us to “understand the rage” the rioters and arsonists were feeling as they did their evil deeds, and that was the end of the story as far as they were concerned. The police forces, the mayors and the governors of the locations where these outrages occurred were evidently amused by them, and the perps got off Scott-free.
But in the last two months, as the governments of too many cities and states have unconstitutionally locked down nearly all commercial transactions, several conservatives have decided to reopen and run their businesses in spite of the leftist orders to the contrary. And these people, who behaved peacefully and did not burn one building nor hit anyone’s head, are being visited by the police, and are even going to jail.
So outright violence in which citizens are injured is forgiven, but acting in a peaceful, mature manner not approved of by leftist officials gets you cuffed and jailed. And at the highest level of government, a plot by the FBI to keep Donald Trump and his newly-appointed National Security Advisor, General Michael Flynn, from taking office, or at least to get them removed after the swearing-in ceremony was completed, goes unpunished, and would have been entirely buried and forgotten, with no notice at all, if Hillary had been elected to the White House and not Donald Trump.
When trying to support your family and keep your business going becomes a crime, it’s a serious and uncomfortable thing to observe in a supposedly free nation protected by a constitution. And the Democrat lie that keeping everyone locked in their homes for months on end is “protecting” citizens from a disease, when the virus in question is greatly less deadly that the annual cold and flu season illnesses we deal with every year, is a communal and intentional lie that must be exposed daily and hourly as the Democrats try to intimidate us and convince us to be docile and obey their orders.
Democrats undermine the constitution and defy common sense with everything they do, and Conservatives just want to support their families and protect their investments. But only the latter are defiled by the leftist press and put in jail.
Sunday, May 17, 2020
And now that we’ve seen the spread of the disease level off, the radical political left wants to continue to strangle the economy with further restrictions on jobs and personal freedom, for another three months in some locations, based on the even more idiotic “modeling” and false prediction that the disease will resurge soon, or at the latest this fall, and will combine with the normal cold and flu season to devastate the nation.
I would advance the notion that our nation has already been devastated and that further destroying our economy will certainly not help the situation when families’ house payments are not met and when retirement funds have been spent on food during these jobless months.
The virus is now the political lefts’ version of global warming. For the last 50 years we’ve been frightened by Democrats predicting a new ice age, followed by global warming, then climate change, and we’ve been assured that using our air conditioners and driving our cars have been the cause of this certain death-by-burning. It’s all our fault, say the radical Democrats, and the government should get involved in our personal lives to stop us from participating in these capitalist practices.
For the dual causes of, initially, climate change, and now to help stop the Wuhan virus from spreading, Democrats insist that Americans must change the way we live our lives, which means staying in our homes, not driving, not traveling, not eating out, all of which is making America a third world country. And all the while, the Democrats in the House of Representatives are passing new, multiple-trillion-dollar bills that will fund their pro-immigration, anti-capitalist and unconstitutional notions of how America should become, all under the pretense of bridging the income gap that many out-of-work Americans are experiencing. Big brother will house and feed you, the Democrats say, so sit back, stop working and trust us.
And don’t worry about the lost income and the bankrupt IRAs, because Pelosi and Schumer are there for you. Per the Democrat party, the chaos will never end and we’ll all die if we don’t follow their radical instructions and drive our nation off a cliff.

The Democrats’ global warming/climate change farce is a direct attack on science because it’s based on a pre-programmed set of parameters, in other words, a “model”, designed to produce its inevitable outcome, and completely eliminates peer review and scientific validation and testing. Democrats built a computer system that makes certain assumptions about the future, all of which are confirmed by the data they input, and the predictable outcome produces the “scientific evidence” that they want. They claim that this outcome proves the earth is warming, even though we all know that the highest temperatures last summer were no higher than the temperatures two summers ago, and the summer ten years ago. And still these fools, who have been predicting devastatingly high temperatures for fifty years culminating in the eventual death of all beings on the planet, recently announced the latest date-of-death from the office of the Dumbo we know as AOC, as being ten and a half years in the future.
Then we arrive at the modeling performed by the medical community related to the subject of the coronavirus. The good technicians and doctors, good and faithful government employees all, established certain criteria to prove that millions of Americans would die of the Wuhan death pandemic, and VOILA!, the model produced the desired outcome demonstrating that millions of Americans face death from the Chinese disease, and our entire economy was closed down, hard and fast, based on this false information.
Thinking people are expected to forget, of course, that we’ve only seen a .03 percent death-rate resulting from the disease, and that the greatest number of deaths occurred in populations that remained inactive and indoors, which the mainly Democrat governors and mayors had ordered. On the other hand, the states that allowed the most personal liberty and freedom to move about, get sunshine and exercise, were the least impacted by the disease.
And then we saw the repeat phenomena of individuals on the left immediately condemning anything President Trump said, even when his statements were from the sound foundation of science. Trump said hydroxychloroquine, an existing drug used for decades that had been found to be successful in halting the coronavirus destruction to human bodies, may be useful in fighting the disease, and the leftist press exploded, saying that he was obsessed with this drug and that it had no use against the current virus, even though it was being prescribed by many doctors and was having great success saving patient’s lives, which is the most valuable and important evidence of the scientific proof of its effectiveness. The anti-Trump statements from the left about an anti-science, political right, were themselves purely political and were made in contradiction of proven, in-service, science.

In addition, the wise governor order people who were suffering from the coronavirus to be placed in nursing homes along-side older, existing residents of the establishments who were otherwise healthy, until Cuomo inserted himself in the mix and decided the nursing home was a better place for those suffering from a disease than a hospital was. The result was that many otherwise healthy older Americans, resident in the buildings, were killed by the disease that the governor knew was more deadly to older people. Despite Cuomo’s Forrest Gump presentation and phrasing and his running-off at the mouth about how he loved his mother, visited his mother, missed him mother, he still made a decision that killed other people’s mothers.
And when you add to this national tragedy the fact that our economy is in ruins and people are losing their homes due to lack of income, all because of a governor or mayor ordering the shutdown of homes and businesses, one hopes that it will be recalled that the Democrats own this shame, and all because they want to halt Trump’s November re-election to the presidency. Some Democrat officials have even extended the shutdown for a longer interval in order to cause more chaos and damage to America.
Democrats and the far left press have been accusing President Trump of causing the spread of the coronavirus, all of which accusations were the usual lies from the left, but now we have Democrat Andrew Cuomo issuing orders that led directly and provably to many deaths of older people, but the press is silent on the issue.
Then we have the case in Texas where a leftist judge imprisoned a woman for “selfishness” when she opened her salon in order to pay her bills and to gain employment for her employees. Typical of all leftists is their insistence that you do as they say, even if what they say is contrary to the constitution and common sense, or they will punish you severely. This issue also points out how completely stupid Democrats are: the judge would deny the woman’s access to healthy sunshine, work and exercise while at work, and shut her up in the confined spaces of a jail cell where it is impossible to attain healthy distancing. Did this fool judge think at all about his decision before denying the woman her freedom?
It may be that the Democrats’ chickens have come home to roost, as Democrats’ executive orders kill people.

But I’ve also never heard of a person claiming that a particular restaurant gave them a cold or the flu, and especially remote is the likeliness of the person suing the establishment and getting a judgment against the business. Is legal blame going to descend on businesses for cancer being possibly contracted on the premise? Is there a designated place where cancer and colds are contracted without someone being liable for them? How stupidly litigious can a society become? And can a mayor or governor make a business owner legally liable simply by the owner opening a shop that the official has ordered to remain closed?
How can one who brings a suit prove that any particular establishment housed the germ that infected them? Is the fault and the proof of guilt contained in the action taken in contradiction to the government official’s orders? Can American citizens be held legally liable for an act of nature, and is this covered in statute or in our constitution?
It is not only possible but likely that if this lawsuit thing goes forward, that someone could buy a food product at a store, get sick that night and capriciously blame contraction of an illness on the store. But unless the food item was not fully cooked or was not refrigerated properly or had some other defect that could be blamed on the store owner, and I don’t think colds or viruses are listed under that category, what fool would bring a legal action on one of the several establishments he/she visited during the previous week, and claim that that establishment alone, caused their illness?
But the threat of a lawsuit is intended by leftist governors and mayors to keep society firmly in line and to do as the dictatorial official says to do, period. Typical socialist-Democrat attitude.

The ACA, forced on Americans by Democrats, provided packaged coverage that many people didn’t need and couldn’t afford, and was introduced as a foundation on which a single-payer, Socialistic, nationalized healthcare system could be built. From this foundation the American left hoped to be able to control and direct American citizens’ choices in health, food and personal activities, so they would do what the government told them to do, or else they would lose all of their healthcare coverage.
Then along came the coronavirus and the political left, never a group to allow a perfectly good national crisis to go to waste, convinced the nation to accept the notion of a national shutdown, for the citizen’s own good, of course. Leftist governors and mayors gleefully made everyone stop working, shut down privately owned companies, closed public parks, closed beaches, closed churches, forced everyone to wear masks, and forbade protests as we were unconstitutionally forced to do these things, even as we saw the loss of our businesses or our homes threatened because of a lack of money to pay bills.
With the election of Donald Trump to the White House the nation was able to get rid of the most obscene part of Obama’s ACA, the part that made the purchase of this Nazi plan mandatory. But now that the virus has allowed many Democrat governors and mayors to issue their own rules, that they are forcing the nation to abide by, the constitution-hating left has found a way to bring America to its knees, impoverish the middle class, deny healthcare to millions of people as the coronavirus monopolized healthcare facilities across the nation, to the exclusion of all illnesses not being the virus-of-the-day, thereby destroying the economic system and the healthcare system that were the envy of the world.
With the realization that the national shutdown could be used to hurt President Trump in the 2020 election, Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America” may have finally arrived, as Democrats and never-Trumpers keep the pain applied and the strangulation in place. If anyone thinks that this lesson, dropped from heaven into the paws of the American left, will not be pushed to the maximum harm of the American public and will not be repeated during future cold and flu seasons and the sicknesses that accompany them, then you don’t understand the evil of the political left.
And just to be sure that there is no misunderstanding, the shutdown orders issued by President Trump were the result of his dependence on the advice of medical minds that were already present in the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, each of which department had highly experienced and respected doctors and researchers whose advice he properly respected, so he took their advice to perform the shutdown, fully knowing the harm it would do to the economic boom he had built in three short years, but sincerely believing that it was the correct decision for the good of the nation.
The problem arose when these advisors predicted multiple-times more deaths than actually occurred; they predicted overflowing hospitals that would sap our health resources, most of which did not happen; and then they were unable to admit that they were wrong with their dire forecasts, so they doubled down and pushed for a longer shutdown interval and a slower recovery as businesses finally opened back up, all of which made the bad situation only worse.
I don’t blame President Trump for anything that’s happened, but in the future I hope he and every future president realizes that they should take the disease and pandemic predictions made by the medical people into consideration, but also rely more heavily on the damage done to America and our entire way of life if the economy is weakened by the medical advice, and come down on the side of making certain our economy remains intact and strong.

Joblessness will sustain itself, feed on itself and make the bad situation worse if we don’t do something about it quickly. This self-abuse must end and people must be allowed to re-establish their businesses and their personal lives, and employees must be allowed to get their jobs back.
In today’s Trump-hating, corrupt, big government political environment, the land of the free and the home of the brave have become the land of the locked-up and the home of the cowering and whimpering.
This unconstitutional stupidity must stop.
