Roy Moore And The Utah Swamp

Today in Alabama we will learn if the voters in that state can be bought or intimidated into becoming defacto swamp creatures. With one of Mr. Moore’s primary accusers story falling apart, with liberals threatening to reveal who voted for who and punish those who voted incorrectly and the latest racist mailer sent out by the mysterious Highway 31group, I suspect that voters will disavow the typical liberal tactics of fear, intimidation and division and send a highly capable and imminently qualified man to the senate. This is as it should be.

Not even the last minute injection of questionable money by spoiler wannabe Evan McMuffin will stop the righteous and honorable Mr. Moore.

Even so the swamp is wide and deep, extending two thirds of the way across the United States to infect even my home state of Utah.

Swamp dwellers like or current governor Gary Herbert, Senator Hatch, and even my representative Mia Love, have all called for Mr. Moore to step down. Even the usually reliable Mike Lee utterly failed on this issue. Their calls for removal pale in comparison to the tripe uttered by Utah’s own homeboy Mitt “the Massachusetts wonder kid” Romney.

Romney, the ultimate swamp dweller, rich, connected and completely controlled by the RNC donor class, had some harsh words concerning Mr. Moore. Apparently the American concept of innocent until proven guilty only applies now to swamp dwellers like him. One can’t help but wonder, if the swamp dwellers are so willing to sacrifice one deeply help American ideal, what other deeply held American ideals will be dispensed with should the politically correct reason arise?

Will it be freedom of speech because hateful moslems demand it?

Will it be the very concept of American citizenship because illegal aliens don’t want to be “offended”?

Will it be the God given right to keep what is yours because some lazy drug addict “needs” your car, house, money?

Will it be that pesky 4th amendment thing because the government needs to know who to punish for incorrect thinking?

Will it be the right to own firearms because criminals need safer working environments?

Will it be the right to vote, via the Electoral College, because only the votes of liberal controlled coasts and mega cities really need to be counted? Us hicks in flyover country are really to simple minded to understand all the complicated stuff bureaucrats do, right Mitt, Orrin, Gary, Mia?

I hate to even mention these things because this just serves as a challenge to the average swamp dweller. Instead of being concerned with protecting these and other liberties, they will read this list and view it as a challenge. I can hear them now, “What great ideas, let’s start working on them.”

Hey Gary, Mia, is that Steve Bannon I see coming over here? I for one, sure hope so because I refuse to live in a swamp and frankly, I was here first.

Sometimes You Gotta Play Hurt

I don’t remember exactly where I heard this axiom but I believe it is more true for us conservatives now than it has ever been. To better understand this we must look at where we have come from, where we are now and what possibilities the future holds.

Sometime in the nineteen fifties liberals, communists, socialists (they are branches of the same foul tree so from now on I will refer to them all as liberals) realized they could not win elections by being honest about what they wanted. Having united to throw off a great depression, win a world war and deeply in the process of rebuilding the countries we destroyed, few Americans were willing to tolerate being called the focus of evil in the world.

In the fifties Americans were brought unashamedly face to face with the amazing potential for goodness and greatness that we had, as a people, always possessed. Notice I didn’t mention perfection. As a country we knew there were struggles remaining to be fought, civil rights for example, but we also knew by then that there was no problem big enough to destroy us. The Nazis couldn’t do it. The Japanese couldn’t do it. The great depression couldn’t do it. Americans knew of a surety the only limits they would face would be self imposed. Thanks to the likes of Hitler, Stalin and Mussolini, the liberal, communist, socialist ideal had taken a brutal beating. Instead of giving up, liberals, communists and socialists decided to play hurt.

Their two prong plan was deceptively simple; first, attack from inside the “systems” of America, education, media, news, government, the courts and crucially, religion; second, never give up.

The first and arguably most important step was the gradual takeover of the public education system. None of the other arenas could be usefully penetrated without properly educated individuals. They started at the colleges and have since worked their way down to pre-school. Doing this allowed for the white wash of liberal, socialist, communist histories of brutality and failure. It also allowed for the direct and most effective indoctrination of millions of Americans at the lowest possible cost. It was accepted that results would, at first, be slow in coming. Those who had been successfully indoctrinated in college would then spread out into government, politics, education, media and even the scientific community. The cycle would be, once a critical mass was reached, self sustaining by its very nature.

At this point I can hear you shouting at me, “But Sailor, that is some huge conspiracy. How does all this get coordinated?” Allow me an example. A coworker of mine likes to talk about a grand lame stream news conspiracy. He envisions a secret conference call every morning to decide who and what gets reported on as well as how it is spun. I surprised him by saying I agreed with him but not in a way he probably thought I would. There is no need for any kind of direct coordination because these news types all went to the same schools, were taught and influenced by the same professors, read the same books, talk to the same people and live in the same places. They have a template of what is and what should be. They have been taught to believe that practicing confirmation bias is actually how news should be reported. It is, in that respect, the perfect conspiracy in that it is decentralized, its participants are highly motivated and it is self reinforcing.

Even if the takeover of public education and the news media is a huge, directed conspiracy it actually needs little coordination. Gentle proddings, not to mention lots of cash, from people like Soros or Gates will suffice. The simplicity of the “conspiracy” (your word not mine) is its reliance on human nature. Talk to any true believer and you will soon see how little “coordination” is required. The conspiracy is simply that these people all believe the same things and refuse to accept, much less allow you to accept, anything different.

Fast forward to today. Liberals now brazenly flaunt their hatred of America in the open. Antifa and blm are the latest incarnations of Stalin and Hitler approved by millions of successfully indoctrinated public education victims. As an example lets examine the black community. Liberals, after having successfully decimated the nuclear black family, have convinced blacks to welcome a life of welfare servitude, to tolerate a roughly 97% black on black murder rate, to celebrate a gangster/drug culture, to segregate themselves in colleges, to demand reparations for conditions they never experienced from people who had nothing to do with slavery, to demand their own nation within the borders of the United States, to allow the open call for ten thousand black warriors to begin killing every white person they can find and refusing to prosecute high profile black criminals simply because of their skin color. The black community routinely denigrates successful conservative blacks for being either not black enough or acting to white. While the black community lunges headlong into anarchy and self destruction liberals continue to make excuses revolving around how evil America is.

In the hispanic community liberals are having almost as much success. Realizing that the hispanic population will soon outnumber the black community, liberals continue their push for open borders and voter fraud. They seek to expand the hispanic population as rapidly as possible through illegal actions like DACA, birthright citizenship and chain migration. They continue to peddle their racist America routine by changing the language, exploiting the sympathies of Americans and outright displays of hate towards anyone who disagrees with them. They fund and support groups like “La Raza” (literally, The Race) and its violent para military arm MECH-A. They create sanctuary cities to protect illegal alien criminals from deportation and spend hundreds of billions in taxpayer dollars to provide legal aid, welfare, housing, medical and education to those who have no legal right to such services. They even teach that hispanic “victims” of America have the right to violently oppose conservatives that support the rule of law.

Then we have the importation of a standing moslem army into America in the names of tolerance, multiculturalism and compassion. These are often violently militant “religious” (islam is not a religion it is a political system disguised as a religion) fanatics. The vast majority of these individuals have no intention of assimilation or being tolerant of their new countries laws, rules, customs or traditions. Their “religious” duty is to subjugate us non believers. That’s it. They have no other goals.

By now you, the careful reader, doubtlessly have a question. “Sailor, I thought you said the liberal, communists, socialists were trying to take over the country. It sounds like maybe they are trying to destroy it instead of take it over.”

Great observation and thank you for paying attention to such a depressing subject. You are correct. Let me explain. At the outset liberals knew there were only two possible outcomes (failing was never considered) for their strategy. History shows that these sort of people seldom come into power (outcome 1) peacefully. They gain their thrones almost always (outcome 2) by the spilling of blood.

Recent elections have shown the liberals that option 1 may no longer be possible. The republican takeover of the house was the first shot fired by Americans tired of being the focus of evil in the modern world. Liberals wrote it off as a white male temper tantrum. When the republicans gained control of the senate alarm bells began going off in the minds of liberals everywhere. The guarantee of Hillary winning the presidency was their only hope of capping off their long march. When she lost a sense of urgent desperation took over and the restraints came off.

Now under what they perceive as a direct threat, every option is on the table. No critic of liberalism is to be spared any form of derision, attack or personal destruction. The true nature of liberals has been ripped out from under their benign sounding political correctness for all to plainly see. We are treated daily to the cesspools of public education, popular culture and political corruption. The open endorsement of hate and violence towards conservative and Christian Americans by the left is both stunning to behold and ugly beyond belief. The constant attacks on America itself are, to me, the vilest sort of evil.

I said it before and I will say it again, Trump was not my guy. Still, while he has disappointed me on several occasions, he has pleasantly surprised me on others. He has proven to anyone paying attention that you can play, and win, while hurt. It is time for conservatives to “play hurt” and finish the job of taking our country back. We will be assaulted for this in every way liberals can conceive of but that threat must not dissuade us. The level of their anger towards us should be seen, properly I might add, as confirming the correctness of our actions. The more successful we are in reclaiming America from the liberal tyrants doing their best to destroy her, the louder they will cry and the more brutal their assaults on us will become.

Once upon a time the cry “Give me liberty or give me death,” roused a nation of fine and decent people to secure their freedoms. There is no way to improve on that call. All I can add is, sometimes you gotta play hurt.

Everything You Thought You Knew About Language Is Wrong

I have probably listened to Michael Savage a total of fifteen minutes in my whole life. I have read some of his books and columns. When he talks about losing the language he is spot on. Without language we are left with virtually no tools to frame a concept, produce a counter argument or even describe a concept or principle. Controlling the language was every bit as important to the liberal (well intentioned or devoted fascist) as running academia, the media and popular culture. Consider how far from the plain meaning of words we have gotten.

Bipartisanship. This touchstone of liberals does not mean to them what it means to you, me and most likely, the vast majority of good intentioned but misinformed liberals. The average public school victim, I mean graduate, hears this golden word and thinks of a group of legislators gathered around the well of the House with the well being of America as their sole concern. Alternatively some people think of a group of legislators meeting and compromising until something, generally good, and politically expedient is worked out. In this fantasy scenario, everyone gets a little of what they wanted but no one “wins” completely. Liberals desperately want for you to believe both of these scenarios. In reality nothing could be further from the truth. History proves that beyond a shadow of a doubt.

While many republicans (RINOS all) have swallowed these myths and desperately continue trying to make them reality, the fact is that liberals only have one definition of bipartisanship, my way or the highway. I first became aware of their duplicity when the promise, codified in law, to support the South Vietnamese Army after Americas withdrawal, was ruthlessly ignored. Estimates vary but millions were murdered, tortured, raped and sent to concentration camps. Liberals knew about the murders, executions, rapes and torture but simply didn’t care. The victims of the NV communist regime were acceptable collateral damage to the liberal democrats and their supporters at the time. The press knew about the carnage but covered for their liberal pals as best and as often as they could. In the end their narrative survived and that was all that mattered. As an aside, Ken Burns continues the cover up with his alleged documentary on the war.

The process or “bipartisanship” was continued with the mythical border enforcement promised for Reagan’s signature on the misguided amnesty he signed off on, with the never intended budget cuts promised to Bush senior for his tax increase, all the way to today’s current “gun control” arguments (just one more law will stem the tide of violence in this country). As further, and unnecessary proof of my argument, can anyone name a true conservative bill that the Kenyan little Barry ever signed off on during his illegal presidential term? Bipartisanship is like the mirage of water to the lost man in the desert, and produces for America, the same results.

Migrant, Migrants, Refugees. These terms are virtually indistinguishable from one another. These terms are used precisely because of the images they invoke, good, warmhearted, poor, honest, downtrodden people fleeing poverty and persecution, willing to work hard for their version of the American dream. The term migrant, which conveys an unspoken sense of legitimacy, is the current evolution of the highly accurate term illegal alien. We are led to believe that these migrants are, for example, the poor abused unwanted of our southern neighbors. We are told they only want a better life for them and their children. If this is true then why do these migrants work so desperately to recreate in America the slums they left? Why do they send back to Mexico alone billions of dollars every year? This money ends up in the pockets of Mexican drug lords and corrupt south of the border politicians. Why do they overwhelmingly support a group “La Raza, (translation, The Race) dedicated to “returning” much of America to Mexico? If they are so hardworking why are so many of them on welfare? If they are so invested in the American dream why do they so often refuse to learn and use English? Why do they so often self segregate? Interwoven among the “migrant” community are the DACA “children” many, if not most of them over the age of 19, including known gang members and enough criminals to scare the daylights out of reasonable people. Liberals still refer to them as children so they can blast people like me for reminding everyone that the simple fact is, these people have no legal right to be here.

Refugee is the current PC term for the militant moslem America haters being imported by both the government and churches as fast as the government can pay the churches for doing so. The term also carries with it a sense of moral duty. These, we are lectured at, are the brutally oppressed that we must care for. This is also total Barbara Streisand. The vast majority, around 99%, are devout and often militant moslems intent on “converting” America into their caliphate. The real oppressed, Christians in the middle east, are being routinely murdered, raped and tortured en masse by our refugees brethren and studiously ignored by the very churches who claim to believe in the gospel of Jesus Christ. These “poor” moslem refugees demand special accommodations at every turn, harbor violent and brutal criminals, mutilate young girls, teach that their men have the right and duty to rape non moslem women, engage in the horrific act of honor killings and, for now, have turned parts of the once great state of Michigan into a non moslem no go zone.

Liberals and democrats accept all this economic and personal carnage because the two classes, migrant and refugee, vote (nearly always illegally) almost exclusively democrat. This isn’t to say that liberal leadership is unaware of the evil they support, they just believe that once they fully gain control, they can scale back the destruction. This is a delusion of mind numbing proportions.

There are many other words liberals and democrats have corrupted.

Investing means simply raising taxes to spend more money we do not have on things and agencies we do not need.

Education means the indoctrination of yet another generation into the glories of socialism, perversion (disguised as sex education), revisionist history and anti American hatred.

Integrity means the ability to not get caught violating the letter and spirit of the law and if you do get caught, avoiding any consequences.

No reasonable, thinking person should allow themselves to be sucked into this linguistic mumbo jumbo.

The liberal way of thinking is created by the twisted definition of words. It produces, then covers for sick people like Harvey Weinstein, Anthony Weiner and Bill Clinton. It creates bizarre concepts like social justice. It produces facts like blacks can’t, by virtue of their skin color, be racist. It manufactures crisis like the current college rape epidemic. It thrives on lies like “hands up, don’t shoot” and “I can’t breathe.” It encourages, sorry, it demands the hubris of transgenderism.

Eventually, many liberals end up realizing just how shallow and vacuous their liberalism is and just how far from reason and reality they have strayed. Because they have so often invested their education, career, even their entire lives into their liberalism, change for them is quite difficult. A great many never even attempt to change. It’s easier to accept black lives matter, CNN or antifa as reasonable reactions to any who disturb their convoluted world view.

The lies that have to be believed to live this way are truly a burden unto themselves. Congratulations, you earned it.

An Open Letter to Jerry Jones

This is so difficult that I don’t know even where to begin.

I watched in abject astonishment as you led your team in kneeling on the field. While I am glad you stood for the national anthem I still cannot escape the feeling that you led your team in a sickening capitulation to political correctness. You led your team in living the lie. I am to broken hearted to be angry. Allow me to elaborate.

Nearly fifty years ago my grandfather, a life long Texan, WWII veteran who retired from the Air Force with 23 years service and die hard Cowboys fan who could do anything from fix the car to killing rattlesnakes (but could never clean the blood out of the airplanes he serviced because it was the blood of his friends and there was simply to much of it) introduced me as a young child to his favorite sport, football. As we watched (on a black and white set no less) the likes of Walt Garrison, Dandy Don Merideth and Leroy Jordan play he would explain the game to me. Many of my fondest memories were made on those Sundays.

Later, when I was older my dad, a Vietnam veteran (combat engineer) who lied about his age to join the U.S. Army at sixteen and worked his way up to obtain his Warrant Officer commission and eventually to a full commission, would allow me to watch my Cowboys play even though he was not much of a football fan. I would breathlessly explain to him the plays of Roger Staubach, Drew Pearson and Randy “manster” White. He would feign interest and complement me on my observational ability, then return to what ever he was working on. While he never enjoyed football the way I did he cared enough to give up his Sunday shows to let me watch my Cowboys. Small though those sacrifices may have been, they taught me the value of sacrifice and I will always be thankful for that.

A few years later when I had the chance to play football in High School I had visions of greatness, as I expect all young men do when they get their first taste of “professional” sports. The Van Vandals, from the tiny town of Van, Texas were a good team that year despite my mediocre football talents. I didn’t play much, nor should I have. My physical skills simply were not up to my mental abilities. Still, I learned the value of preparation, discipline and team work.

Not to long after my brief excursion into football I joined the U. S. Navy. Because of my service commitments I missed many games. This served to make the occasional games I was able to watch all the more special to me. Even on my two deployments (6 and 9 months respectively) I worked hard to keep up with “my team.” Many was the time I would be chastised for my love of my Cowboys. My love of my Cowboys ran to deep to be affected by mere ridicule. I never let it shake me.

In my last year of service I met the lovely young women who would, against her families wishes, marry me. She, a die hard Seattle Seahawks fan and me the die hard Cowboys fan have spent 32 years watching the teams we love and cheering each other on. She helped me through Troy Aikmens 1989 zero for 11 performance. She cheered with me when my Cowboys won Superbowls in 92, 93 and 95. I try as hard as I can to do the same for her.

One of my most cherished memories was meeting Emmit Smith at a trading card show during his rookie season. He was a delightful and engaging person.

You may have noticed a theme running through this letter. I love football and it has been a big part of my life all of my life. That is what makes this so difficult.

You do not appear to understand that the knee taking is in support of a demonstrably provable lie. For some one in your position, accepting such a blatant lie as fact, let alone acting on it, is inexcusable.

My experience with racism directed at me personally is limited to being spat on by a very old Japanese man one day while my ship was visiting Japan. A young man who witnessed the incident came over and acted as a translator. The old man had lost many of his family during the war and was still angry. I was simply a target of opportunity. I asked the young translator to explain to the old man that I had nothing to do with that history as my mother came to America in 1947 as a child and that my fathers parents came to America from Spain in the 1930’s. The old man did not reply, he simply looked at me, bowed ever so slightly and left. I bear the old man no grudge as he taught me a valuable lesson, anger, allowed to fester, often goes astray.

On the other hand I heard the stories of my grandmothers experience with hatred. She met my grandfather in Germany. He was able to finally bring her and my mother to America after years of bureaucratic nonsense. My grandmother was, in the late forties and early fifties, the frequent victim of hatred. She chose to rise above it and show who she was by example. She learned English, eventually found a job and helped my grandfather on his ten acre farm in east Texas. At age 55 she went to college, earned her degree in journalism and worked for the local paper as a writer and photographer. She taught me what you missed the opportunity to teach your players, virtue signaling is meaningless.

My dad, because of his dark complexion and jet black hair, was called spic and wetback more times than I can count. The fact that his parents came from Spain was never considered by those who berated him because of what they thought he was. Like my grandmother, my dad did his best to stay above the hatred of others. As one of his army buddies put it once, “He never started a fight but he sure finished a few.” On Sunday you missed the opportunity to teach your team to rise above the shallow, factless arguments of liberal hatemongers. You chose not just for you but for your team to live the lie of institutional American racism. It is a proven lie by members of my own family because despite all the real hatred experienced by my family members they all went on to rise above it and even prosper.

On a more personal note, you chose not just to dishonor the flag and the national anthem, you chose to dishonor three generations of my family. When your players “speak” on the field they are directly or indirectly, “speaking” for you or, at the very least, with your permission. There is no way for this to not be taken personally.

Now for the hard part. I can no longer watch the NFL. Nor will I be supporting any of it’s sponsors. I realize my pittance will not be missed but it is my pittance to do with as I choose and I choose not to give it to those who disrespect everything my family has overcome and achieved to placate a group of implacable liars.

Tolerance Equals Failure

I am an unusual person. By nearly every definition, today’s society/pop culture considers me irredeemably weird. I simply do not fit into any of their molds. I chuckle every time I think about that. As some examples consider the following.

I have been happily married to the same lovely young women for the last 32 years. I have never had an affair. I have worked for the same employer for 32 years. I held my part time tax job for 17 years. At work I show up on time and do more than expected of me. When I need to be somewhere I plan well enough that I do not need to race like some maniac loser to get to where I am going on time. When my gas guzzling Durango needed major repairs I paid the $1250 from my savings account. When I replace my car I buy well maintained used cars and pay them off as quickly as possible allowing me to sometimes go years without a car payment, not to mention the money I save on car insurance. When my daughter brought her new boyfriend over to meet me I took one look at the six pounds of metal protruding from his face, the six hundred tattoos, the pants desperately clinging to his hips and the gang colors he was wearing and told him to get the (insert colorful expletive here) out of my house. I gave up watching the sewer, aka network TV, including all the pay services, years ago and have never regretted it. I consciously refuse to subject myself to “popular” culture including music, music videos, most anything that comes out of hollywood today and 99% of anything at the supermarket checkout stand. I shop locally every chance I get. I actually read real books. I have never had, nor will I have, a twitter account. I only spend about two hours a week on facebook, mostly to play a couple of games I like. I have no body piercings or tattoos (which really makes me weird as I was the only enlisted man on my ship with no tattoos). I am religiously observant. I do not depend on anyone for anything I can do myself. Even worse, I expect others to be as responsible as I am.

In today’s culture all these traits mark me as a white privileged, right wing, intolerant, homophobic racist. They are mostly wrong of course. I say mostly because I am intolerant of many things, for example racism or political correctness or religious intolerance or, as in the case of black lives matter or antifa, outright hate. As one of my heroes once said I also, “Don’t much care for quitters.”

As I look out at the world my grand kids are taking their first tentative steps into I fear for them greatly. I place the source of that fear squarely on the shoulders of “tolerance.” That will seem an odd thing to say to many who read this. Never the less it is so and I’ll tell you why.

We tolerate the hatred spewed by black lives matter to make up for something no one alive was responsible for and no one alive participated in.

We tolerate the near mindless violence of antifa instead of arresting them and locking them away to show that violence for the sake of violence should never be tolerated.

We tolerate every childish temper tantrum thrown by immature college students instead of demonstrating that rules are meant to be followed and that changing the rules requires a process to be followed and that everyone’s rights to be considered.

We tolerate the abuse of language itself by calling illegal aliens undocumented migrants, welfare dependency compassion, abortion women’s health and referring to illegal aliens “constitutional” rights. For all you public school graduates the rights enumerated in the Constitution apply only to U.S. citizens and you don’t get citizenship simply because you managed to get cross the border.

We tolerate the abuse of the individual by major corporations, Google and Firefox as examples, as well as massive federal, state and local government overreach in the name of political correctness.

We tolerate a death worshiping cult that still practices slavery, child abuse, rape, animal abuse, murder and genocide in the name of tolerance. Yes I am referring to islam and I know these things because I study current events in moslem controlled countries and have read the only two books moslems read, the koran and the hadith. You should read them as well. Even more sad is that while we make constant excuses for an evil ideology posing as a religion we allow constant attacks on Christianity by anyone whose feelings are hurt.

We tolerate the massive and total failure of the public education system even as we throw more and more money into that tragically flawed system. My grandchildren were not taught American history to any level of proficiency but can readily name all “52 genders.” Given the product turned out I would have to say that many teachers and administrators are vastly overpaid.

We tolerate constant abuse by the homersexual and so called “transgender” gaystapo. They seek not to engender compassion but the complete and utter destruction of anyone that does not fully endorse their lifestyle of risky behaviors. Personally I don’t care if you want to place an excrement covered penis in your mouth but I am not going to let you define such an act as an act of love, let alone normal. I don’t care if some guy wants to wear a dress and makeup but you have no right to be in my granddaughters bathroom or locker room. I don’t care if you were feeling like a girl when I called you sir, you don’t get to sue or harass me because I “misgendered” you. Nor do any of these behaviors qualify you for special rights. The fact that a handful of gay activists took over the American Psychiatric Association and voted to eliminate homersexuality from the diagnostic manual does not mean these behaviors are in fact normal.

We tolerate the massive invasion of our country by anyone who can get here, including vile gang members who have “relatives” here. We tolerate billions of our hard earned tax dollars given to illegal aliens that could be better spent on our veterans, or our homeless, or our mentally ill or even our infrastructure.

We tolerate the erasure of history by hate mongers.

We tolerate judicial tyranny.

We tolerate lying career extortionists, uhm, I mean politicians.

We tolerate a proven beyond a doubt fake media.

I could go on but I think you are beginning to see my point. Tolerance can be a beautiful thing but tolerance can also be a powerful weapon. Americans are nearing the point where we are about to “tolerate” ourselves out of the rights we asserted in the formation of our country. We are nearly at the point where we will “tolerate” the world out of the greatest, most productive, most inventive and most compassionate country in human history. Abraham Lincoln is supposed to have said that in the course of history, “we will be remembered in spite of ourselves.” If we are not careful I think we will be remembered as the generation that fully embraced the most avoidable tragedy in human history.

Kicking The Dog

When I write about a potential for civil war in America many scoff at the idea. Some call me a “wild eyed extremist” or “rabble rousing hate monger.” The more polite simply accuse me of misreading current events. Nothing would make me more happy than for the latter to be proven correct. The former are simply name callers who have to check their I-phones each morning to determine what the truth is today.

A small but highly vocal, and deeply entrenched in the machinery of government, media, corporate leadership and education, minority seems to have wrenched control of America from the normal, hardworking people in flyover country. Aided and abetted by traitorous “republicans” (McCain, Flake, Snow, Collins et al) and spineless college administrations, mayors and entertainment types, their march towards anarchy continues nearly unabated.

Consider the following.

A nursery in California is being prosecuted under the Clean Water Act for plowing its own land without federal permission. The Duarte Nursery is fighting a suit brought by the Obama Justice Department. The suit was the result of the Army Corps of Engineers determining that pools of water running alongside the furrows created by plowing a wheat field were “navigable waters.” The government went so far as to insist that the furrows generated by plowing were “mini-mountains” that disrupted the “ephemeral” puddles of water on the land. Astoundingly a so called judge agreed with the Corps and the Justice Department. Hoping to avoid $45 million in penalties the nursery agreed to a $1.1 million settlement. Under this definition virtually every lawn in America becomes a “navigable waterway.” Are you ready for the Army Corps of Engineers?
The Student Government Association at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green voted to approve its recommendation that the school make tuition “free” for all black students. The resolution passed 19-10 and supposedly sends a message to university faculty, administrators and everyone else that slavery is “a debt that will never be paid.” I can’t help but wonder if the college ever bothered to teach that slavery was abolished in the US more than 150 years ago. I’m no expert but is this “tuition plan” not the definition of institutional racism? And what about those of us whose family’s immigrated here after slavery was abolished? Why must we be forced to pay taxes to fund this? What about blacks who came here willingly and were never held in slavery, do we have to pay for them as well? Are the descendants of black slave holders included with us poor white folk in having to pay for this? If not, why? Finally, just how long do these mis-educated liberal miscreants think the rest of us will stand for this?
Deep state poster boy and Clintonista hack Robert Mueller is conducting an investigation in search of a crime. He knows it, the media knows it and every democrat elected knows it. Yet from the first day of Trump’s presidency each and every one of these progressive hate mongers have been dreaming for a criminal indictment or impeachment to accomplish what they could not at the ballot box. The conduct of Robert S.(is the S for scumbag?) Mueller shows that he willing to go to any lengths to get one or the other. He has hired a progressive dream team of democratic donors/insiders or former Clinton employees to form his hit squad. All of these people hate voters like you and me and if nothing else, they will be paid millions of dollars by you and me to subvert justice and, they hope, overturn a legitimate election. This is an outright political assassination. How long will will hard working, play by the rules Americans stand for this?
It was on a Saturday night in the San Francisco Bay area at approximately 9:30PM when 60 thugs rampaged through a BART train, robbing, beating, threatening and laughing at the plight of their victims. What you don’t know but the locals do is that local media embargoed this story for 36 hours. The San Francisco Chronicle was forced to begin releasing a few details such as “at least two victims suffered head/facial injuries requiring medical attention” the following Monday morning. A BART spokeswoman, Alicia Trost eventually confirmed that seven robberies had been committed with victims losing a duffel bag, a purse and five cell phones. Everyone reporting on the crime spree was very careful both to minimize its size, violence and most importantly, the fact the the sixty thugs involved were all young blacks. Local media, led by The East Bay Express, has diligently worked to protect the black criminal class from law enforcement. They have been so effective that most of the BART surveillance cameras are fake. Can’t have video evidence of blacks being responsible for seventy percent of the complaints filed by BART customers while making up ten percent of BART riders now can we? Sadly black crime on BART is out of control because BART administrators, city officials and liberal racists will not stand up for ordinary working class Americans. These kinds of attacks persist not because whites are racist but because the criminals feel absolutely safe on BART. When will it become fashionable in liberal circles to simply equally enforce the law regardless of skin color? How much longer before one of these flash mobs is met with armed resistance?
Then there are the liberal support groups. Ever heard of the Brady Campaign? In 2012, Jessica Ghawi was murdered by James Holmes. At the urging of the Brady Campaign, whose lawyers had to have known better, her mother Sandy Phillips, sued the store that sold the gun to the loser Holmes. I won’t claim to understand the pain of losing a child but I will call you out for departing from reason. Mrs. Phillips and her husband sold their home and belongings in Texas to attend Holmes’s trial in Colorado, after which they traveled around the country in a camper to preach the virtues of gun control. The financial consequences for Phillips and her husband, by acting on the Brady Campaign’s advice were dire. Not only was the case dismissed but the judge, correctly, ordered them to pay Lucky Gunner’s $200,000 plus legal fees. One can wonder if the Brady Campaign was hoping for a stroke of legal lightening in their favor. Or were they hoping to create a martyr for the cause. After all, martyrs make great fundraisers and in 2014-15 the Brady Campaign took in $25 million. Why don’t they pay Phillip’s judgment for her? In any case the Brady Campaign is the winner, they get the cash and the ability to infuse additional anger towards people like you and me into their base. Even so, one wonders just when people will get tired of being used, or in this case sacrificed, as political props.
Sometimes our wounds are self inflicted. The liberal, progressive democrats then take full advantage of our stupidity. Some two hundred former IRS employees have been rehired by the Kenyans holdovers (why are there any holdovers at this abusive agency?) at the IRS. These are those who illegally accessed private taxpayer information for political purposes, participated in the harassment of TEA Party groups seeking tax exempt status and generally failed to perform their duties. Trump, in a massive failure, has allowed the Kenyans IRS to remain intact. It will continue to be used against you and me as well as anyone deemed to be in support of the Trump administration. Once leaked, your information will never again be private and the liberals will target you mercilessly. This was painfully easy to see and even easier to prevent. Why it was missed boggles the mind. I mean, did we not fight a war over unfair treatment concerning taxation once before?
Finally there are the carefully orchestrated events like Charlotte. How long will ordinary Americans tolerate well paid, out of state rabble-rousers like antifa and blm manufacturing hate and discontent in their cities and towns? Which one of these staged riots will be the one to spin out of control because cowardly, politically correct police chiefs refuse to maintain public order? In that failure how emboldened will the paid criminal elements and their fellow travelers become? What limits, if any, will they place on their outrageous acts of domestic terror? Finally, what happens when good and decent citizens, tired of the unrelenting evil being foisted upon them, decide to act in their justified self defense?
Ordinary, law abiding, hard working, tax paying, play by the rules Americans are under near constant assault from all sides. We are regularly abused by the media, the education establishment, activist judges, extortionist politicians, politically correct social justice warriors, militant homersexual tyrants, elitist corporate CEO’s, ambulance chasing lawyers and vapid hollywood types who know only that they are famous and we peons should defer to them without question.
How long will Americans tolerate moslem no go zones in their country? How long will Americans allow businesses like Craft Draft 2 Go to be sacrificed on the alter of political correctness? How long will Americans tolerate mentally ill men demanding the right to impose themselves into women’s restrooms? How long will Americans tolerate being forced to reward illegal aliens with billions of tax dollars? How long will Americans tolerate a fake news media intent on fanning the flames of hate, made up victim-hood and the normalization of perversion? Finally, how long will Americans tolerate having their lives run by trained seal social justice warriors?
My grandpa, a country boy who fought in WWII, used to say that you get the first kick at the dog for free. After that he warned, you take your chances that the dog will bite back. How long I wonder before the majority of Americans decide to “bite” back?
I hope it never comes to that. I hope it never comes to a civil war. I hope that cooler heads will prevail. I pray daily that reason will again appear in everyone’s words and deeds. All I know though is that there are an awful lot of people out there intent on kicking us again and again and again and again…..

The Circular Firing Squad Rises Again

Charles Krauthammer, always presented as a conservative voice on the talking head shows he regularly appears on, recently opined in a piece titled “Sessions Lessons” on his concerns that Trump is “criminalizing” politics in America. To quote the once good Dr., “in America we don’t lock up political adversaries. They do that in Turkey. They do that (and worse) in Russia. Part of American greatness is that we don’t criminalize our politics.” Wow. I usually attribute that level of political observer irresponsibility to either outright demagoguery or willful blindness.

One would think that a trained psychiatrist would have more sense than to spout such nonsense. Alas, he has perpetrated this train of thought almost relentlessly since the election of President Trump. You would think that as a longtime political observer he, of all people, would understand that no matter how diligent his attacks on Trump are the leftists he apparently seeks to gain favor with will never accept him. Not even his “disability” will protect him from their long knives when he finally strays to far from their gospel. Anyone remember a Senator named Joe Lieberman?
Has he forgotten that Nixon gave the liberals the EPA? Wage and price controls? What happened to him?
Does he not remember that Bush Jr gave them the largest expansion of medicare in history? The TSA? Common Core? How did he fare with the liberal establishment?
Does he not remember the last eight years? How soon he seems to have forgotten how the Kenyan little Barry weaponized the IRS, the Justice Department, the NSA, CIA, FBI and a dozen other alphabet government agencies in his quest to fundamentally transform America into his version of a Soviet style Cuban dictatorship.
I have great respect for Charles intellectual ability which is why I was stunned to read such outright liberal propaganda from him. It is beyond curious that he would accord himself in such a manner knowing full well what his liberal audience will do to him eventually. Or perhaps he thinks, against the grain of liberal history, that he will find himself immune to their retributions?
It seems to me that he much prefers the Kenyans pen and phone to Trumps make America great again.
Donald Trump was never my candidate. While he has disappointed me on more than one occasion he has also given me much hope that it is not to late to save the country I love. Even now, as I prepare for the worst, I remain cautiously optimistic.
It was clear from the beginning that Charles was never going to accept anything but the “perfect” presidential candidate. Trump never claimed perfection. He only claimed to love America as much as those of us who voted for him. He only claimed that he would work as hard as we in flyover country do to rekindle the greatness that made America the light of the world. He only claimed that we the people were more important than the establishment, deep state traitors (my word not his) to America.
Charles has overcome much in his life and accomplished more than most people will ever dare to try. I respect that but seriously, Charles, it’s time to get out of the poisonous beltway and back into real America. You obviously have some catching up to do.
