INSANITY REIGNS IN THE HOUSE!

Image result for POLITICAL INSANITY CARTOONS ABOUT IMPEACHMENT

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!

ADAM SCHIFF, ARBITER OF THE “FALSE NARRATIVE

Image result for Adam Schiff crazy eyes picture

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 convenient. 

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 complaint.”

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 news channels.

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. 

DEMOCRATS ARE DESPERATE, AND THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO WIN

Adam Schiff News Pictures Of The Week - November 29

After 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’. 

Now 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.

A 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! 

The 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! 

There 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”.

Still, 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 assistance. 

Shortly 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. 

Another 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 run.

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!

IS THE PROBLEM GUNS, OR GOD?

Image result for picture of god

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.   

Nero Fiddles While Rome Burns

Image result for picture of nero fiddling while Rome burns

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!

YES, THAT’S RIGHT, WE ARE ALL PREJUDICED!

Lost, Hell, Limbo, Night, Dark, Forest

Do you walk on the other side of the street when you see seedy people coming towards you?

Do you protect your handbag when a group of youths of color approach?

Do you sit in another subway car if the one you embark on has loud ruffians?

Do you evaluate a new neighborhood by making assumptions about the neighbors?

Do you slow down your vehicle when you think that there may be a policeman ahead?

Do you look twice at the dark-skinned man in a turban boarding the same plane as yourself?

Do you watch the stranger with some trepidation as he walks up your front walkway?

It 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. 

Tying 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 society.

The 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.

Prejudice is not going away.  SJW’s can scream about it all they want.  People of all colors and backgrounds practice prejudice on a constant basis, and that will never stop.  The “law of the jungle” states that only the fittest survive, and the fittest pre-judge their situations on a minute by minute basis. 

Prejudice 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. 

My wife and I will continue to pre-judge our life’s journey.  We proudly wear the badge of prejudiced people.  How about you?

WITNESSING THE DEATH OF THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY

There 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.

The 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. 

24 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 Democratic. 

The 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”.    

THE DEMOCRAT PARTY IS DEAD AND GONE

RIP DEMOCRAT PARTY!

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!

LOCAL POLITICS IS IMPORTANT!

My wife and I have been chastising ourselves for being very focused on national politics, to the detriment of what happens locally.  As our penance, we decided to attend the town hall in our city highlighting our new Los Angeles County Sheriff.  Neither of us knew much about this man, and our homework on him and local law enforcement issues were sketchy and incomplete as we entered the venue.

Our new Sheriff is Alex Villanueva.  He was a relatively obscure Lt. Deputy Sheriff that retired in 2018, prior to the election.  He spent 30 years with the department, but never managed large groups.  He never went higher than Lieutenant in his career, which made him a lower level mid-manager at best.  He was a “dark horse” in the election, running against incumbent James McDonnell, a seasoned veteran that previously was Chief of the Long Beach police department and at one time was second in command of the Los Angeles police force.  That was all we really knew about him when attending the town hall, but insight into his policies and beliefs became very transparent during the Q&A session that followed his introduction.

Everyone in attendance was given the option of asking questions when signing into the event.  Question cards were available and if desired, one could submit one or more questions for the new Sheriff.  Both my wife and I submitted questions.  To the Sheriff’s credit, he answered every submitted question without hesitation, and his answers were very telling.

He was asked repeatedly about what his department was going to do differently to address the growing illegal alien problem.  His answer to these questions were firmly in line with the “California Values Act” passed by the state government giving cover for all illegal aliens.  Simply stated he said that there are over 1 million “undocumented migrants” in his jurisdiction, and they are, by his account for the most part law abiding and productive residents that have rights.  His position is that they need to be treated with the utmost respect, never put in a position to harbor fears of deportation.  In fact, he claims that his policy of respect makes the job of policing much more effective, because these “undocumented migrants” will co-operate with the department with information on criminal activity in their neighborhoods.  It was evident that he sees the illegal alien invasion as a net benefit to our community, and wholeheartedly supports the Liberal Progressive “California Values Act”. 

There were many questions about how he was going to handle the burgeoning problem of homeless camping out in our neighborhoods.  His position was unwavering.  He stated this; “You talk as if these people are not yet in your back yards, but they are already there.  We manage the problem with deputies trained to interact positively with the homeless, working in concert with social service and mental health personnel to assess the needs of those living on the street.  The big question is what are you as citizens going to do to make it better for these individuals?”  In other words, he bounced the problem back on us, as if that is where it belonged. 

I brought up crime directly to him.  Neighborhoodscout.com has put Lakewood CA at 13 in their rating for crime safety.  This means that out of 100 being completely safe, only 13% of USA cities are less safe than our town.  I asked him what his plan was to reduce the crime rate in our town (Lakewood contracts out to the Sheriff’s department for police protection).  He came up with statistics showing that crime in Lakewood is down compared to what it was in 2018, but he used annualized statistics for 2018, and only YTD statistics for 2019.  Yes, he compared apples to oranges, and took a pat on his own back for “community-based policing”, a policy where he will attempt to hire deputies who live in the same communities where they will be stationed.  In other words, he skirted over the question to make it go away.

Neither my wife or I voted for the new Sheriff.  We voted for the incumbent, as he was doing a good job of reforming a very corrupt organization where the previous leadership was actually sent to jail for their activities.  He was the right man for the job, having previously been in charge of large police organizations, and he was also tough on crime.  It came to us that something happened to have this dark horse succeed in unseating this highly qualified man.  Looking into this issue was an eye opener.

It turns out that after the California jungle primary, where he came in a distant 2nd to McDowell, he went full bore focusing on the groups that he thought would be most supportive of him.  His Liberal Progressive beliefs and his Latino surname were his strong points.  He lobbied every Hispanic political group he could find, putting himself up as one of them (his father was Puerto Rican, his mother Polish-American).  He also lobbied every Democrat Club in Los Angeles County, every Progressive organization with voter rolls, and pushed hard that he would support all Liberal Progressive ideals that they held dear, in spite of the Sheriff’s election purportedly being “non-partisan”.  He continually told all that wanted to hear that he would be an active resister of Trump and the Federal Government in their efforts to deport illegal alien criminals, making the LA County Jail system “off limits” to Ice and Homeland Security.  He promised to evict them from office space given to these agencies by Sheriff McDowell.  He became the darling of those that embrace just about everything that is wrong with California, and that propelled him to his win. 

The left is organized and active in California politics, much more so than Republicans and Conservatives.  They fight hard and dirty, and that is their winning strategy in this state.  If we are to take this state back, we need to have the focus and design to do so, and that necessitates paying great attention to local politics.  We have positive messages, but in order to win, we need to translate that into understandable sound bites for the public, and most of all, we need to get out the vote.  If we don’t California, and for that matter the nation will be permanently transformed into something unrecognizable.  Our inaction would produce Liberal Progressive Socialism, open borders, the end of the nation, and the push for Global Governance.  We have to remember that all politics starts local.  If we ignore that fact we will lose!

ROBERT MUELLERS SURPRISE PRESS STATEMENT, SIMPLY AN INVITATION TO AN IMPEACHMENT STYLE LYNCHING

Mr. Mueller spoke to us today.  In a nutshell, he cast a dark shadow over the Collusion theory, indicating that although there was not enough direct evidence present to indict, there could have been collusion, but that there was not sufficient evidence to actually make a charge.  With Obstruction, there was in his opinion a clear case for Presidential obstruction, but no charges were made because a sitting president cannot be indicted according to Federal law.  Then he made it clear that what he is speaking to is directly contained in his report, that he would not be making any more statements, but if required, would only refer to the report itself.   His speech was clearly a political statement, and he invoked the Congress to do their job.  It was an invitation to impeach, and Jerry Nadler will make sure that does happen.

The report has been out for weeks.  We all have had the opportunity to read it.  The first part, Collusion was a wet noodle.  It clearly pointed out that there was no collusion.  The second part, Obstruction, was a legal work of fiction, showing the President growing weary, and discussing with his staff ways to shut the “witch hunt” down once and for all.  None of that happened, and for political reasons, the “witch hunt” went on until its inevitable conclusion.  In effect, no Obstruction actually happened, but was considered by the President, a man unjustly accused of crimes that never happened.  A President aware that he was the target of a coup, who wanted to fight back, but had the realization that doing so would convince the public of alleged guilt to fictional crimes that would surely lead to impeachment, and one that may have even been supported in the Senate.  

The Mueller team clearly was formed to get the President, no other reason than that.  Even though they spent much time, treasure and effort to bring him down, there was nothing there for them to indict, nothing there for them to get their job done the way the swamp wanted.  Now, with the “Investigation of the Investigators” and the IG report on its way, its panic time in Washington, and that is exactly why Mr. Mueller spoke in public. 

The swamp desperately wants impeachment, and Jerry Nadler is a willing accomplice.  The House will impeach, and drag it out before the media until November 2020, hoping beyond hope that the public will have a tainted view of the President, and vote Democrat to actually get rid of him.  They know that impeachment is dead on arrival if it goes to the Senate, so instead it will be a “show trial”.  They are hoping that this circus will divert attention from other investigations that will be damning to the Democrats if the public pays attention.  With a compliant print and television media, they may be right, but I give the American public more credit for common sense than that.

The swamp is terrified that the truth will come out, and that truth could very well include indictments for many in the bureaucracy, including Mr. Mueller and his band of merry lawyers.  The Clinton Campaign and the DNC will also be threatened, as they were major players in the investigation and the coup.  Democrat Senators and Congressmen will also be implicated.  It will be an interesting run up to the 2020 election.  Fasten your seatbelts people, this is going to be quite a ride!
