Yesterday was Halloween, and in true form, the House Democrats were in full swing to celebrate. They honored this day with a vote, one to establish rules for an Impeachment inquiry. Mind you, this was not a vote to validate an inquiry to Impeach the President, but a vote to establish rules for an on-going investigation. Predictably, the vote was right down party lines, with Republicans all voting against this resolution.
The Republicans and the President asked for a vote to
validate and start an inquiry in a fair and impartial manner. That did not happen. Instead, the Democrats put together rules to
follow in the future, rules that were heavily slanted towards creating a
narrative for impeachment, rather than to make the process fair and mirroring
the established rules of law.
How is this going to work? Well, Chairman Schiff will continue his closed-door
hearings without any change in behavior.
He will still silence Republicans that wish to question witnesses in a
manner that will not support an impeachment narrative. He will still be the sole person to be able
to summon witnesses, the Republicans on the panel will not be able to subpoena
anyone. The President’s defense team
will not be allowed in these closed-door hearings. In short, nothing changes for Adam Schiff and
his one-sided hearings.
Once Adam Schiff is confident that he has a narrative
that is strong enough to play with the American public, he will turn the
investigation over to Jerry Nadler and his Judiciary committee. At this point, Republicans and the President’s
team will be allowed to subpoena witnesses as long as the entire Judiciary
panel agrees to it, effectively giving Jerry Nadler, a long-time hater of the
President the power to determine who may be called to testify. Further, Republicans and the Presidents team
can cross examine Democrat’s witnesses, just as long as Jerry Nadler agrees to
the line of questioning. At this point
Republicans and the Presidents team can also see transcripts of Adam Schiff’s closed-door
hearings, but without their participation in the process, those transcripts are
subject to a great degree of disbelief.
Further, all other committees that are investigating
the President are encouraged to continue on, in the hope of finding any other
possible damaging evidence.
The Democrats believe that having a vote for these so-called
rules will shield their members from weeks of Republican complaints that the
inquiry is invalid because the House had not formally voted to begin the
work. They are hoping that the American public will
accept their “trick” as a “treat” and that they can now move on with their “witch
hunt” with the end-goal of impeachment within sight. It is appropriate that they did this sham
vote on Halloween!
Leadership is tough. Often one has to make hard decisions for the betterment of the organization. Our President is in that position. Just like a CEO of a large company, a President is the final arbiter of USA policy. He at times makes decisions that do not sit well with at least some other politicians, and for reasons other than logic would suggest. Politics is an ugly profession, and that ugliness is on graphic display today.
The President ran partly on the promise to end the “endless wars” we seem to be endlessly engulfed in. He is honoring that promise by pulling out special operations forces out of Northern Syria, with the eventual plan to get all of our military out of Syria permanently. He rightly considers this part of the world, with centuries of hate behind them and the prospect of centuries more of the same, a particular area where there is little to no hope of finding a peaceful solution. He is right about this, and there is no logical reason for us to continue down the same road, expecting different results rather than the failures we continually derive from our presence there.
Nancy Pelosi and her Democrat followers in the House, people that up until now were firmly against military action of any kind, are now cynically using the pullout for political gain. They now present themselves as “hawks”, and condemn the President for “destabilizing” the region, a region that has been perennially destabilized throughout history. This attempt to use the Presidents decision against him is just another of their current tactics to speed him along to impeachment in the House.
The debate on the pullout will be in the news and later in the history books. Talking heads will expound on the worthiness of the move, some agreeing with the President, and others siding with Nancy Pelosi’s minions in condemning the effort. History will have the final say in the matter, and the present and future in the region will have to play out for that story to be written.
Make no mistake about it. Nancy Pelosi and her minions were elected to represent their districts. Our President was elected to represent all of us. Pelosi was elected by the lunatic fringe in the San Fransisco Bay area, and from all accounts she does an exemplary job of representing them, but she is not speaking for the vast majority of American citizens. Her toxic narrative is designed to take a duly elected President down, and in no way is representing the best interests of the United States. She and her followers should be ashamed, and as voters, we all should remind them of that shame in the 2020 election cycle.
First we were subjected to the Russian collusion narrative. Every day in the news there were so called breaking stories that the Mueller investigation was onto something nefarious and that we would certainly be amazed at the illegal activities President Trump engaged in with Vlad Putin in order to steal the election from its rightful owner, Hillary Clinton. We were told that the Mueller report would be the final nail in Trump’s coffin. That narrative was strengthened by statements from Congressman Adam Schiff, who personally assured us almost daily that he had the goods on the President, but we would just have to wait for the Mueller report for them to be made public.
After 2.5 years and over 30 million taxpayer dollars spent, the Mueller report was finally available for general consumption. The report, as long as a Russian novel, virtually said nothing about Russian collusion with the Trump campaign, but made insinuations that it was possible that Congress could find a charge of obstruction, being that the innocent President attempted at various points to fire Mueller and end the investigation, knowing that it was only the result of partisan injustice, harming his reputation and that of his administration. The Democrats thought that they had a new narrative that just might stick. Obstruction of Justice just might fit the bill for Impeachment.
After a month of pondering possibilities and putting out the obstruction narrative, it did not seem to stick with the American people. No matter how hard the Democrats argued that obstruction was the serious crime that they needed to Impeach, the narrative did not catch on. They were desperate for a new narrative, and they worked to create one that was believable.
The first 2 attempts by the Democrats and the bureaucracy were dismal failures. Both Russian collusion and obstruction of justice fizzled out before their very eyes. It was looking like their dream of Impeachment and removal from office was never going to come true. They did not give up hope, and instead used an asset within the Trump administration to concoct a new narrative, one that would have some basis in truth.
The President made a phone call to the newly elected President of the Ukraine. Most of the conversation was polite and congratulatory. Trump wished the new President Zenensky his best, and then at the end of the conversation, asked for a favor. That favor was in 3 parts. He asked him to look into Joe Biden and his son, inferring that their may have been some funny business with the ex-VP withholding 1.5 billion dollars of loan guarantees unless the prosecutor looking into the Ukraine gas company that his son Hunter was a board member collecting $50,000 a month in salary was fired. The President also asked Zelensky to talk to our Attorney General and Rudy Guliani about past corruption and election interference, and lastly asked to investigate “Crowdstrike”, which refers to the alleged Russian hack of the DNC’s computer and e-mail stash. All of these alleged transgressions happened before the 2016 Presidential election, and this is information that relates to current Attorney General and Inspector General investigations.
Apparently someone that was involved with the conversation directly did not like the favor being asked, and discussed it with a low level CIA official serving temporarily in the White House. That low level official met with Adam Schiff’s staff, and subsequently filed a “whistle-blower complaint” with the house. The substance of the complaint was that Trump asked a foreign national to investigate Joe Biden, who is currently running against Trump for the Presidency. In order to make it a high crime, there needed to be a “quid pro quo” and alas they found one that just might stick. Previously President Trump put a hold on military assistance authorized by Congress for the Ukraine, and it was on hold during the conversation. That said, President Zelensky did not know that, and it was never brought up in the conversation, but that wasn’t enough to kill a perfectly good narrative! The Democrats and the bureaucracy now had their new impeachment narrative, collusion with the Ukrainian President to the detriment of an opposing candidate.
The Democrats never thought that a transcript of the phone conversation would be released for public consumption. Without that, they could sweeten the narrative in such a way that the general public would be howling for Trump’s impeachment. To their dismay, Trump did release the transcript, but hope springs eternal. With time running out, they decided to use their newfound narrative to impeach!
Nancy Pelosi knew that she didn’t have the votes to start a formal impeachment process, but that did not deter her. She put the most partisan Trump hater in Congress, Adam Schiff, in charge of investigating the President for impeachment. This process is being held in secret, without any representation by Republicans or the President. It is apparent that Nancy and Adam are intent on impeaching the President this year so that it won’t be done in the 2020 election year, and they are going to do it with scant evidence of “high crimes or misdemeanors”! In their minds it is their only hope for defeating the President at the polls. They know that the Senate will not remove him from office, but they hope the stain of impeachment, however partisan and one sided will do the trick.
Chances are they will be strengthening Trumps position in the 2020 election. 40% of eligible voters are his base, and their votes for him are guaranteed. He will only have to convince a small percentage of independent and uncommitted voters to have his win, and with the weak stable of Democrat candidates with their hats in the ring, its almost a sure thing for his victory. It appears that the 3rd time is not the charm for Democrats, but simply more evidence of their insanity!
For over 2 years, Adam Schiff had been the darling of
cable news. He was on hundreds of times
on CNN, MSNBC and legacy news channels like CBS, ABC, and NBC. His message was simple and to the point. He claimed that President Trump was
illegitimate. He stated time and time
again that the President colluded with the Russians to deceive the American
people to steal an election that he did not deserve to win. He would also state that the President is a
stooge of Putin’s and deserves to be impeached.
Further, he continuously stated that he was in possession of
incontrovertible evidence of this collusion, but cannot make it public until
the Mueller investigation is over.
The Mueller investigation is now over, and
unfortunately for Adam Schiff, there was no collusion, and Adam Schiff has now
been silent over his claims of having personal evidence of that crime. His narrative has been totally debunked. He lied to us for over 2 years, but
apparently his lies are going to be unpunished and forgotten. In fact, he is now chair of the House
Intelligence Committee, a position that puts him in the forefront of the new
Impeachment inquiry. How
He is now the official face of the Democrat push to
impeach the President. They are pushing
for impeachment on the basis of the transcript of the recent conversation the
President had with the new President of the Ukraine. In fact, Schiff and the Democrats announced
the inquiry for impeachment before they even had the transcript available to
read, based on 2nd hand information in a complaint by an alleged
whistleblower who apparently is a low-level CIA employee, who had no direct
contact with the phone call in question.
The Washington Post breathlessly wrote “so troubling that it prompted an
official in the US intelligence community to file a formal whistleblower
Once the transcript was made available to the public,
it became apparent that the phone call was for the most part innocuous, not in
any way rising to the level of “High Crimes and Misdemeanors”. In other words, it did not constitute an
impeachable offense. That did not deter
the Democrats or Adam Schiff. Last
Thursday on live television, Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff had news conference
to inform the American people just how evil the President is, and that they are
proceeding forthwith into an expedited impeachment inquiry. Adam, in full glory, even read into the
record an utterly fabricated statement from President Trump to the President of
the Ukraine. This fabrication
highlighted a false narrative that gave credence to the impeachment inquiry,
but had no basis in fact. He later, when
questioned about it, stated it was a parody, not to be taken seriously, but the
damage was done, and the false narrative embraced by CNN, MSNBC, and the legacy
Once again Adam Schiff is in the driver’s seat with a
false narrative that has the potential to damage the President’s re-election
chances. He is their best propagandist,
and will do whatever he can to bolster the impeachment argument with as many
lies as he thinks the American public will stand. Stay tuned for more of his public television
appearances bolstering false narratives of impending impeachment.
close to 3 years of multiple investigations, the Russian Collusion narrative
proved to be a red herring. The
Democrats held out hope that the Mueller report would change that, but it was a
bomb, pointing out that the collusion narrative did not have legs. Not willing to give up, the Democrats
subpoenaed Robert Mueller with the hope that a personal interview would give
them something, anything they may use to impeach our President. Instead, he gave them nothing more than even
less reason to impeach, and Mr. Mueller’s poor performance even put his lengthy
and costly investigation in a very poor light, with Mueller stating there was
no collusion, and not even giving them any ammo on the backup narrative of
“obstruction of justice’.
fast forward to the latest attempt to impeach.
The same Democrats were jubilant that the President was caught in a
phone conversation that appeared to give them the information Mueller did not,
a reason to impeach the President.
CIA agent was the whistleblower. This
agent pointed out that the President asked the new Ukrainian President to
“interfere in our upcoming election” by investigating the Biden family. He pointed out that the “quid pro quo” was
the military assistance that our President temporarily withheld allegedly for
reasons of possible Ukrainian corruption weeks earlier. The Democrats felt that they finally got him,
and that it was imperative for them to impeach DJT as soon as possible!
thought process was that this is the perfect situation for them to pursue
impeachment in the election year. Since
the conversations between heads of state are always classified and not available
for public consumption, they could have the likes of Schiff and Nadler make up
volumes of damaging narratives about the President and this phone call without
any possible way to verify. The
whistleblower would also be protected, with identity and content of the
complaint held in indefinite abeyance.
They felt that this was the only way that they could win back the
Presidency, as their candidates are too weak to do it on their own. This, in their minds was the “perfect storm”
to sink the Trump candidacy!
were many unintended consequences to their new narratives. First, in order to be a “whistleblower” one
would have to be part of a bureaucracy where crimes were committed, and the
alleged criminal would have to be part of the same organization. Further, the evidence would have to be “first
hand”. In other words, the whistleblower
would have to have seen the crime himself.
Unfortunately, the information in the complaint was second hand hearsay,
and obviously the complainant was not a witness to the alleged crime, and did
not have access to the phone call transcript.
Further, since the alleged criminal was our President, he did not
qualify as being a part of the intelligence agency whose member originated the
complaint, thereby making the complaint useless, and the complainant’s status
as a whistleblower “null and void”.
the Democrats charged forward on their investigation to impeach, but another
unintended consequence happened. DJT
declassified the phone call transcript and made it available to the public. As read, there was nothing remotely criminal
about the conversation. A case could be
made that our President should not have asked for help investigating the
Biden’s past corruption, but the request does not rise to the level of ‘high
crimes and misdemeanors”. At most, it
pointed out that the President was indiscrete when asking for investigatory
after, the transcript of the actual complaint was declassified and
released. It showed definitively that it
was inaccurate, second hand, and politically biased. This made the case for impeachment impossible
to justify, but the Democrats soldier on with their efforts to do just that,
impeach the President.
unintended consequence of the Democrats embracing the phone call as the reason
for impeachment was that it effectively killed the Biden presidential bid. It brought to light the criminality of his
own “quid pro quo” activity while he was the Vice President, resulting in the
firing of the prosecutor investigating the same company where his son was making
$50,000 per month as a member of their board.
Biden withheld 1.5 billion dollars in aid until the prosecutor was
fired, and he was fired hours after the firing demand. This showed that the only “quid pro quo” was
done by the Democratic front runner, thus eliminating him from the presidential
It is apparent that they hope to burden us with their false narratives right up to election day in the hope of wearing us down with their manufactured drama. They are hoping beyond hope that they can fatigue the President’s base to the point where they will be “absent without leave” on election day. It is their only hope to succeed, but they have not taken one prescient fact to task, and that is they are actually energizing President Trump’s base to vote “en masse”! As a footnote, an additional $15 million dollars has rolled into the President’s re-election fund since the start of this new impeachment process!
There has been much debate about guns recently, with
mass shootings and many deaths in Texas.
The Democratic Presidential candidates have all come to the conclusion
that the problem is guns, and their solutions run from total confiscation to a
mandatory buyback of semi-automatic rifles.
They believe that if they can get guns that fire rapidly off the street,
then the problem is solved.
Our President has indicated that the problem is not
guns, but a serious mental health issue.
He believes that disturbed individuals should not be afforded the
opportunity to purchase firearms and ammunition, and that the state should do
more with government sponsored treatment for the mentally impaired.
It takes people to shoot guns. Guns are inanimate objects that can do
nothing by themselves. Without people,
guns are useless and benign. Our
President is onto something, and that is mental health. However, mental health will not be achieved
with any state sponsored program. Mental
health is something that can only be achieved by persons with a moral center,
and the institutions that promote moral centers, our churches and synagogues,
are losing the battle.
Our society is changing fast, with the younger generations ignoring God. In 1986 10% of young people declared that they did not follow a religion or believe in God. Today, it is 40% of Millennials that do not believe in God (as reported by the Religious News Service 6/26/2018 article). In addition, the vast majority of mass shooters were either fatherless, or had fathers that did not live at home. They also are Millennial’s, or close in age to them. It is a fair assumption that broken families, not held together by God’s word, is a major reason for this phenomenon. Without a cohesive family, based on the Judean/Christian ethic, these young people feel lost and alone, and they have no moral center to fall back on. This is what drives them to do these nefarious acts, and this trend will not stop until we as a society do something to curb this societal trend.
We need to have another religious enlightenment,
favoring the word of our God over the word of Progressive governance. Without that our country will be lost.
Our Southern border is being invaded. It is estimated that this year alone over 1 million illegal aliens will enter the country. Criminal aliens, both legal and illegal, make up 27 percent of all federal prisoners. Yet non-citizens are only about nine percent of the nation’s adult population. Thus, judging by the numbers in federal prisons alone, non-citizens commit federal crimes at three times the rate of citizens. Reviewing the criminal histories of 55,322 aliens in federal or state prisons and local jails who “entered the country illegally.” Those illegal aliens were arrested 459,614 times, an average of 8.3 arrests per illegal alien, and committed almost 700,000 criminal offenses, an average of roughly 12.7 offenses per illegal alien.
Drugs pour across our Southern Border at a dizzying rate. Cocaine, Heroin, Fentanyl, Marijuana, Cocaine and other types of illicit drugs continue to pour in, spreading their misery and death across our nation. Gangs of criminals stream in, bringing with them mayhem to our society. Our status as a nation is in jeopardy. Our country, or for that matter any country cannot continue to exist without borders, and that is where we are now. This is our version of “Rome Burning”.
Congress is the only branch of government that can fix this, our most critical issue. It is up to Congress to construct and pass laws to protect our country and improve our society. No other branch of government has been given that authority. They can reconstruct our immigration system to make it fair, efficient, and and beneficial for our society. They have the power to protect our borders, close loopholes that attract foreign hordes from coming illegally, and bring some sense into how we select people for immigration into our society. This selection can and should be based on merit, with a design that also embraces true amnesty for those fleeing their countries for their very lives.
Congress instead ignores the issue, and focuses almost entirely on investigating the President for crimes that he did not commit. Congressional panels are focused on investigating the President, his family, his finances, his personal and business associates and anyone else they deem helpful in undermining his ability to serve a second term. They also blame him for the border crisis, rather than do anything in their power to stop it. They are our version of “Nero fiddling”!
The 2020 election is coming sooner than many realize. This is our opportunity to elect people to Congress that will actually do their jobs and stop the insanity at our border. We the people have the power to put out the fire and put our “Nero’s” back where they belong. It is up to us to send the “Do Nothing” Congress back home, elect a new Congress with people willing to do their job as specified in our Constitution. Yes, your vote counts and could very well determine the salvation of our nation!

is a natural human condition to prejudge situations. It is one of our best defenses, and is a
natural action that is ingrained in every one of us. Prejudging situations keeps us safe, and
eliminates much random violence and criminality. Profiling, a subset of prejudice, is how we
absolutely protect not just ourselves, but our families.
prejudice in with racism is done all the time to divide us. The narratives
that keep this alive abound on the left.
We are told that prejudice leads to racism, and that we have to fight to
eliminate this sin from ourselves. We
are told that we should not judge racial groups by personal experience or
habit, because we should give everyone the benefit of the doubt. We are told never to profile a person, that
the act itself is evil. We even tell our
security men (TSA) at the airport not to profile anyone. In the same paragraph we are also told that
diversity is our strength. In that
thought, the left also prejudges all white men to be the problem with most of
whole argument against prejudice is crazy!
We are told to eliminate one of our greatest security gifts from God in
order to achieve “Social Justice”. Yet,
these same social justice warriors prejudge “toxic white masculinity”, white
men in general, and white people. They
find great fault with white existence, but find people of color to be
faultless, and clean as driven snow. This
is done with a great deal of prejudice and profiling on their part, driven by
their desire to marginalize white people in particular politically.

is a tool. Like all tools, it can be
used for good, or it can be used for evil. Most people use it for good, and
those that use it for nefarious reasons will never stop. Instead of fighting prejudice, we should
embrace the good in it, and continue to point out that there are those that use
the tool as an evil wedge against us all.

was a time when our 2-party system worked.
Both parties, although different in noticeable ways, held the same basic
values at each of their cores. The Constitution
set up the system of government and guaranteed certain rights. The Constitution
has given us separation of powers, so that no one man or group can lord over
all others. This system of separation of powers has worked
well over the years, and afforded us stability that is lacking in most other
world governments. Not only did it give
us inalienable rights to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, but amendments
to the document expanded on those rights, making the USA the freest country in
the world. Our economic system,
Capitalism, was never in question, and made our economy the envy of the
world. Our military was admired by our
citizens of every stripe, and either welcomed or feared by our allies and
enemies alike. These core values were
never in question, until lately.
Republican Party still holds these values in their core. Every day they have to battle to ensure that
these values are not trampled upon, but the Democrats are pursuing change to
our way of life that would end America as we know it. AOC and her “squad” promote a toxic mix of
socialism and identity politics, along with a very destructive brand of
environmentalism with “THE GREEN NEW DEAL” and with their social media tools,
are constantly messaging large followings on these topics. These 4 women, along with Bernie Sanders and
Elizabeth Warren have moved the Democrat Party far to the left, embracing government-controlled
health care, the eventual end to most constitutional amendments, and
effectively advocating the destruction of our Constitution. They call for open borders, the dissolution
of ICE, and the welcoming of hordes of people from other less fortunate countries. These people are more than welcome because
they are coming for social benefits, and will vote for those benefits, they
will vote Democrat. In fact, they are
advocating for the destruction of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. They believe that they can create a Socialist
Utopia, with the state controlling every aspect of our lives. This of course, would mean the destruction of
our economy, and the forfeiture of our freedom.
Democrats are currently running for President.
They all are in their own ways advocating for this dangerous form of
political and economic change in our country.
They are doubling down on the divisive strategy of identity politics,
and vilifying all that do not agree with them.
They, along with a good portion of the Democratic Party, have in effect
morphed into something entirely different than their name suggests. Their advocations indicate that the
Democratic Party of yesterday is dead, is just a rotting hulk. The only thing recognizable that is left is
the name. Everything else points to the
party now of record is the Socialist Party, with little to nothing about it
2020 election is to be the most important one we have had since Lincoln. This election will determine whether we will
continue to be a country that values individual freedom, values the economic
freedom of Capitalism, or the tyranny of Socialism. This election will also decide if we are to
remain a country, or with open borders to devolve into nothing more than a
failed experiment. People, our votes
will count. We can vote to keep the
country we love, or to embrace the shackles that will be put upon us by the
party that once was “Democratic”.
My family was Democrat. My father, an honorable man was a Democrat politician. All of my siblings were Democrats. I was a Democrat. In years past Democrats were identified as people that respected everyone’s rights. Growing up in the 60’s was the heyday of Democratic power. JFK’s speech where he passionately plead, “Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country”, was a mantra that we as Democrats fervently and proudly believed. Today, we all are conservative Independents, some registered as Republicans, many as Independents, but no one of us are Democrats anymore, and for good reason!
Fast forward to the first primary debate for the Democrat hopefuls. It was 2 days where we learned a lot about how the Democrat party has morphed into something unrecognizable. These 20+ candidates for the Presidency were advocating a very radical agenda. Open borders, decriminalizing illegal aliens, giving them “free healthcare”, giving all of us single payer health care, making private insurance illegal, embracing abortion to the point that even female trannies can have one for free (would like to see that!), a full-on embrace of identity politics, basic income for all, free college, forgiveness of student loan debt, and many more PC positions. JFK must have been spinning in his grave!
The party now, instead of asking what you can do for your country, is now telling us what they want to do for us. Further, they want to do even more for illegal aliens, who they say are “true Americans”. They want to do it with our money, and they say that we will be happier for it? I think not! In fact, they have just exposed themselves for what they are! They are not of the Democratic Party. They are Socialists and Communists! I hope to God that Khrushchev was wrong, and that we would be conquered from within!
We have a lot of good things happening in our country! The economy is very good. More people are participating in the work force, and minority employment is at all time highs. Wages are gravitating upward for the first time in decades. Our trade deals are being seriously re-negotiated and the effort is showing success. Our porous border is being addressed as best as it can be with a do-nothing congress fighting the President on protections. Bad treaties are being reviewed and re-negotiated, and success is at least hopeful. All this is the result of our President, Donald Trump.
I wonder how these hopefuls expect to win an election? No one that has 1/2 a brain can believe what they espouse. No true American can embrace their values. They have run off the tracks and do not represent America. Instead they simply represent the worst of us, those that expect others to take care of their personal problems, those that come in illegally to our country and expect us to take care of their lives, and those that would take away our freedoms in order to capture and maintain power. This is a defining moment in our country, and I pray that we can survive it!
