We’re Broken

I do wonder if this country can be fixed with so many people against it.  Only time and the selection of the next President will tell.

For Sale: One Large Country

The past couple of weeks has had some interesting reading and viewing.  Take this excerpt from American Thinkers J Robert Smith:

A Hillary victory means there won’t be a departure; merely a doubling-down by the elite, as they act with renewed zest to secure their interests — versus the national welfare. The Great Imposition — a war waged on average Americans — will continue with awful consequences.

Impose and divide – divide to conquer. Blacks against whites. (That’s more Milwaukee’s.) Hispanics against Anglos. (That’s more illegals and all legalized). Poor against rich. (Lots more free sh*t.) Takers versus producers. (Lots more free sh*t.) Marginalize the working class. (Further cede manufacturing to the Chinese; shut down coal and domestic energy production, generally.) Demean the middle classes. (Who knuckle-drag their bibles, guns, and backwater values through life.)

The worldview among many of our elite is anti-nation — dare we say — anti-American, anti-law and order, anti-tradition, anti-faith (with exceptions carved out for Islam), anti-durable values and enduring truths, like marriage between a man and woman, and family, as defined by a man, woman, and children. The elite, so very cosmopolitan, have evolved past antique beliefs and ways.

The dangers are domestic and foreign. President Hillary and anti-nation elites would continue failed policies toward Islamic militants and insurgencies. They’d serve up more perverse rationalizations for why Islam doesn’t animate jihadists. More dangers in the offing with rogue nations Iran and North Korea. Mounting danger in Asia, with China, where the PRC is boldly militarizing the South China Sea.

Peggy Noonan wrote this in the Wall Street Journal concerning the Syrian refugees admitted to Germany under Angela Merkel:

But there was a fundamental problem with the decision that you can see rippling now throughout the West. Ms. Merkel had put the entire burden of a huge cultural change not on herself and those like her but on regular people who live closer to the edge, who do not have the resources to meet the burden, who have no particular protection or money or connections. Ms. Merkel, her cabinet and government, the media and cultural apparatus that lauded her decision were not in the least affected by it and likely never would be.

Nothing in their lives will get worse. The challenge of integrating different cultures, negotiating daily tensions, dealing with crime and extremism and fearfulness on the street—that was put on those with comparatively little, whom I’ve called the unprotected.

The powerful show no particular sign of worrying about any of this. When the working and middle class pushed back in shocked indignation, the people on top called them “xenophobic,” “narrow-minded,” “racist.” The detached, who made the decisions and bore none of the costs, got to be called “humanist,” “compassionate,” and “hero of human rights.”

The Hildebeast is a member of the political elite, those who would want to rule over the rest of the population at the expense of people like you and me.  I watched a short one hour video called “Clinton Cash” (based on Peter Schweizer’s book), and the amount of money that the Clintons have reportedly stolen from the taxpayers of this country for personal gain and influence peddling is staggering.  If she is elected to the presidency, then this country is for sale to the highest bidder.

Political Cartoons by Steve Breen

To do this means that she would keep this country in a state of chaos, not permitting any detractors to gain any momentum in opposing her agenda.  If the past seven years under Obama is any indication, a Hildebeast presidency would be close to hell on earth.

To continue from the same J Robert Smith article:

A Hillary win this November assures an exacerbation — and likely, acceleration — of troubles and conflict for a decaying, fractious society. Her victory would embolden the elite to greater highhandedness, to greater “bullying” and imposition of its worldview on citizens, who resent the trampling of their beliefs and values, and resent the elites’ notion that America is nothing more than an open-air mall, where anything and everything American can be sold, traded, bartered or discarded… where people’s livelihoods and welfare are subordinate to a global economy that mostly benefits the privileged… where nation and patriotism are dismissed as the province of yokels.

Political Cartoons by Henry Payne

Folks, we have an election coming up.  There is no possible way that Donald Trump could be worse than the Hildebeast as President.  At least Trump hires the best people to advise him, and isn’t afraid to fire those people who don’t measure up.  That is his saving grace.

Besides, I would hate to see Bill back in the White House around all those interns again…

The Party of Death, Destruction, and Deceit

Now that the Democrats and Republicans have completed their nomination process, it’s now on to the general campaigning for their respective nominees.  Whether we, the American People, will be able to survive the idiocy that is about to occur over the next few months will be attributable only to the amount of numbness that we inject into our souls.

Political Cartoons by Lisa Benson

Yeah, I’m that thrilled…

While the Republicans have their issues, they cannot hold a candle to the Democrats.  The amount of manure that was shoveled in Philadelphia would be enough to fertilize every farm from the East Cost to well beyond the Mississippi River if it wasn’t so damn toxic.  In this convention, the Democratic Party proved to me that they are anti-American, and want to destroy this country in favor of some utopian Progressive/Socialist paradise that they would rule.

One of the first things that was noticed by many is that the American flag was nowhere to be found on the stage until the third day of the convention.  The reason that I heard was that the planners didn’t want to offend anyone.  I’m sorry, this is America.  If you are offended by the flag of the country you live in, then kindly remove your worthless carcass to another country that doesn’t offend you.  Tearing this country down to remake it into some PC-centric country is destructive and offensive to the people living here.

The Democrats invited an illegal alien and her daughter to the stage to push for what amounts to an open border policy.  By doing so, they violated Federal immigration laws as well as other multiple felonies (harboring fugitives, for instance).  But were these folks arrested and charged?  Of course not!

Among those invited to speak were the mothers of Freddie Gray, Travon Martin, Micheal Brown, and others who were killed while committing a crime or crimes.  Nowhere was to be found the widows or mothers of police officers killed by criminals.  Endorsements were given to the BLM movement, but the police, the people who work hard at keeping law and order in place, were ignored.  But what else can we expect from people who routinely ignore and break the laws?  All the Democrats did was pour a boatload of gasoline on the flames of hatred for cops. They had to know that featuring the moms would further the lie that cops murder blacks and inspire the assassination of more cops.

Them there is Planned Parenthood – an organization that kills more innocent lives than the criminals and the police combined for money.  Caught on tape selling parts of babies to the highest bidder, they have the Democrat Party’s endorsement.

The Democrats believe that climate change is a bigger issue than terrorism.  Looking at the Democrat’s Party Platform paper, more space is given to combating climate change than the increased incidences of radical Islam and it’s ilk.  Considering that the Democrats have been suppressing dissent on climate change, and minimizing the potential threat of unvetted Islamic immigrants into this country is telling where their interests lie.

And, of course, the revelation that Bernie Sanders didn’t have a snowball’s chance in the 9th circle of Hell of ever becoming the nominee just shows how dishonest and corrupt the Democratic Party really is.

If one listened closely to the speeches given and closely read their Platform paper, then one would realize that the Democrats want to either control every aspect of your life, or have a significant influence on how you, the American People, live.  This is a far cry from what the Founders of this Country had in mind when the Constitution and Bill of Rights was written.  Government (the political elite) do not to rule the People of this country, the People are to Rule the Government. 

Rush Limbaugh offered this short script for the Republicans:

“Black Lives Matter, New Black Panthers, Occupy Wall Street, stripping God from their party platform, transgender bathroom advocates, pro-death panels in health care, baby butchers at Planned Parenthood, a candidate who violated the Espionage Act thousands of times, pedophiles, illegal immigrants, Sharia law Muslims, Marxists! That’s the modern day Democrat Party,” and you close it with a simple ending: “It’s time to clean up this mess.

“We deserve better. Let them manage their own affairs. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless America.”

What Hillary Clinton believes is summarized by Frank Johnson from American Thinker:

  • She believes that the police are occupying black communities and that they need reeducation to stop shooting black men for no good reason.
  • She believes that all of white America is at fault on race and needs reeducation.
  • She believes that the needs of teachers’ unions come first in managing public education.
  • She believes that Common Core is a good program.
  • She believes that the southern border should be left open and that illegal immigrants here now should be amnestied.
  • She believes that the immigration of Muslims from radical countries in the Middle East should be increased by five.
  • She believes that ObamaCare is good policy.
  • She believes that BLM is a legitimate movement.
  • She was in favor of TPP. It appears that Trump has forced her to recant on this.
  • She believed it was not necessary to send the cavalry for our guys in Benghazi and instead went home, thus abandoning them in the field when they were in a jam and calling for help and when, as we now know, the DoD had equipment “spinning up” on the tarmac (the fact that only the president could make the final decision does not make any of the foregoing incorrect).
  • She was in favor of having the USAF take out Gaddafi, creating chaos in Libya.
  • She believes the Iran deal is a good one.
  • She is the leading progressive in the country. The progressive narrative is that the history of the United States is one of racism, sexism, homophobia, aggression and genocide and that the founding was an illegitimate activity of rich white slaveholding men. If she rejects this narrative, there is no evidence of it.
  • She feels it is appropriate to conduct the high affairs of state on an unsecured private server and does not expect to be called to account for it even though experts now conclude that her servers was hacked by foreign intelligence agencies.
  • She believes that she and Bill are entitled to enrich themselves to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars — so far — by being unfaithful servants of the public interest and selling out the country’s policies.

Hillary Clinton is a corrupt, power-hungry megalomaniac that covets the office of President of the United States.  Once there, she will become this:

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

This country cannot take another four to eight years of the same policies that have increased the National Debt, exacerbated racial tensions, put targets on the police, a Liberal Supreme Court, and continual breaking of the laws of this country at the highest levels.

Folks, there is nowhere to run.  Vote Republican.

Has The World Gone Mad?

We must take a moment at this time to pause and remember the murders of the policemen in Baton Rouge, LA, this morning.  Details are not available at this time, but it is theorized that the police were ambushed by two or more people reportedly wearing camo or black clothing.

*****

This past week, we have seen another terrorist attack in France, and more police killed in Baton Rouge.  Turkey has also experienced an attempted coup by their military, and surprisingly, the Republicans & Democrats have agreed that increased sanctions should be placed on Iran one year after the historic nuclear agreements for non-compliance.

There was only one bright spot – Governor Mike Pence of my home state of Indiana was selected as Donald Trump’s running mate.  The points that Gov. Pence made in his acceptance speech resonated with me, especially the line,

“Hillary Clinton must never become the President of the United States.”

Indeed, the Progressive Liberal policies that the Democratic Party bring to this year’s elections should give every rational thinking American pause – more government control, more taxes, more spending, less rights, and a continuation of the corruption running rampant in the Obama administration.

I look across the Atlantic, and I see the chaos brought to the countries of Europe by the Progressive Liberals in charge of those countries, and I shudder to think that the Democratic Party is espousing the same policies – open borders, almost unrestricted immigration without vetting, penalization of free speech & opinions, protection of Islamic practices & Sharia law over that country’s laws, a single-payer government-run healthcare system, etc.  Europe is damn near in flames, and these morons want that insanity here?

Illana Mercer had this to say about our fearless (or feckless) leaders reactions to the insane actions committed by others (excerpts from her article The Expert Idiocracy Is More dangerous Than Islam, Almost:

“Notice how conservatives and liberals together have sundered the cornerstone of civilization: individual responsibility.”

“Evil actions the expert Idiocracy nevertheless describes as having been caused—nevercommitted. Whether members of the media are applying their cerebral sinew to individual or group-orchestrated crime; to psychological or religious “causal factors,” the formula is always the same.

“These craven acts are caused by everything other than the criminal: ISIS, racism, Islamophobia, too many guns and trucks, too few freebies and fraternité.

“In the progressive’s universe, evil acts don’t incriminate, they mitigate.

“Staying on message, Obama used the passive voice to catalogue his coreligionist’s crimes (just joking; we know the president is a devout Christian). The president referred not to a Muslim terrorist who “killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians.” Instead, Obama spoke about a thing, a “terrorist attack … which killed and wounded dozens of innocent civilians.”

“Do something bad and you become a case study, instead of a common criminal.

“Do something bad and you’re ill, not evil.

“Even when the perp is described as the locus of causality, the forces that propelled our “poor,” “alienated” soul are deemed beyond his control.

“A mental disease (for which no organic evidence exists) made him murder innocents.  The devil made him do it.”

“Ordered liberty requires a moral and logical edifice. It begins with a few eternal verities:

“Evil exists. Human beings are not good by default.

“Bad people are so called because they do bad things.

“Some communities produce more natural-born killers than other communities.”

The insanity of Europe’s Islamic problem is here in the United States, and is compounded by the Black Lives Matter (BLM) thuggery and insane demands.  As noted before, they have actively called for the assassinations of the police (which this morning’s murders appear to be) as well as the disbanding of entire police departments.  (It is an interesting note the BLM representatives met with the President for three hours yesterday.  What for, I have no idea, although I wonder…).  Even more telling is the feeling from the police departments around the country that the President does not have their backs – which he doesn’t given his history of non-support.

Political Cartoons by Michael Ramirez

Is the insanity of the Progressive Left something that the normal American citizen wants?  Do you really want the Hildebeast, someone who is known to lie, mislead, and compromise the security of this country for personal enrichment & protection as the leader of this country?  Is going to Hell in a hand-basket on the express train preferable to holding your nose and voting Republican?  Voting Democrat or third party or not at all will almost ensure that the Hildebeast will become President.

If the Democrats do secure the White House, then the world will truly, irrevocably, have gone mad…
