With the wind at his back

June 26, 2018

The Supreme Court today announced their ruling on President Trump’s travel ban, leaving egg on the face of Hawaii (and more specifically, Attorney General Doug Chin who lead the country in challenging President Trump’s authority to institute the ban. The decision came down 5/4 upholding the restricted travel from eight Muslim-majority countries (out of over 50 by the way). If it had been anti-Muslim bias wouldn’t he have included all Muslim-majority countries? And why would Venezuela be on the list?

Trump is vindicated saying,

“Today’s Supreme Court ruling is a tremendous victory for the American People and the Constitution.”

According to Breitbart.com, Trump also recommitted his promise to defend the United States and vowed to fight for a secure immigration system. His stand on immigration is likely the single biggest issue that won him the presidency. Remember when X-President Obama told President Elect Trump that North Korea would be his biggest problem? No thanks to him and many previous presidents who did nothing but placate and appease “Rocket-man”. But it truly seems the Donald has a handle on that problem or at least is working toward a lasting solution. I just read yesterday that Kim Jong-un in a sign of détente has cancelled an annual “anti-US imperialism” rally marking the start of the Korean War. The month of anti-US Korean War-focused events designed to strengthen nationalism and unity. Now it seems he is wisely more interested in making friends with the USA. He is a dictator, a liar and a thug and most certainly a human-rights abuser, but the whole USA-Korea thing doesn’t seem like the near disaster it was a month ago.

But immigration and everything having to do with visas, the border, etc., is way outta hand. With today’s Supreme Court ruling and the wind at his back, I think Trump’s next move should be to halt all border crossings for as long as it takes for Congress to do their job and clean it up. In The Hill this morning Trump said of all the things we inherited, immigration makes the least sense. It is a hodge-podge of laws put together over years and years.

“We have to change it. It’s so simple:  It’s called, ‘I’m sorry you can’t come in’. You have to go in through a legal process.”

“Read a damn book, you Idiots!”

June 21, 2018

This is Ben Shapiro’s (the Daily Wire) response to the lefty loons known as the Democratic Party and the Media, comparing Trump’s immigration policy to Nazi policy. And let’s be clear, this family separation policy is NOT a Trump policy! It was an Obama-era 9th Circuit Court ruling! The Nazi policy BTW, was to murder children and parents.

Former CIA chief General Michael Hayden is among the idiots as is former First Lady Laura Bush who likened the detention centers to internment camps.

Eighty-nine year old David Tuck was enslaved by the Nazis and survived multiple concentration camps. He can tell you a thing or two about real Nazis. When he was 10 years old the Nazis invaded his native Poland. Being a Jew he was sent to one of many Jewish ghettos and later to several Nazi labor camps. When the Americans liberated his camp, Güsen II, David weighed 78 pounds. Democratic Connecticut Sen. Richard Blumenthal, another of the many idiots Shapiro refers to, likened America’s immigration policy to the “cattle cars of Nazi Germany.” Tuck could not believe it when he heard that.

 “They know nothing of the Holocaust. They are politicians, looking to get paid,”

When asked to compare the American border detainment facilities to actual concentration camps, Tuck said, “These are country clubs.” After the American Army freed him, he desperately wanted to become an American. It took five years of recuperation, paperwork and applications but Tuck finally made it and has lived here ever since. He is the type of immigrant that appreciates America and does not have his hand out for freebies. Anyone who compares the detention facilities to Nazi concentration camps does not deserve your respect. In fact they deserve nothing but scorn.

On This Day In History

June 11, 2018

One this day in history (courtesy of This Day in History) at 11:30 a.m. on May 29, 1953 (original draft for this post was dated 5-29-18), Edmund Hillary of New Zealand and Tenzing Norgay, a Sherpa of Nepal, become the first explorers to reach the summit of Mount Everest, which at 29,035 feet above sea level is the highest point on earth.

Edmund Hillary & Tenzing Norgay, Sherpa guide

You may recall Hillary Clinton in trying to become something extraordinary lied and told Americans she was named after climber Sir Edmund Hillary who became one of the first climbers to reach the summit of Mount Everest. This claim was proven false when it was discovered that Sir Edmund reached the summit six years after Mrs. Clinton was born. Just another casual lie while trying to break the glass ceiling.

Also trying to become something extraordinary she “misspoke” after a trip to Bosnia in 2008, claiming to the media that when they landed in Bosnia, she had to run away from sniper fire. However, CBS News video footage showed otherwise. Of course we all know she lied her fat bum off about Benghazi even stooping so low as to lie face-to-face to the grieving parents of the 4 Americans killed in that cluster-fu*k. And let’s not forget the whopper(s) about the private email server. She did after all, turn over all of the emails after eliminating those having to do with Chelsea’s wedding and her yoga classes.

She, the famous feminist Hillary Clinton said that women who have survived sexual assault have the “right to be believed.” Yet in 1992 while her husband was running for president and women were accusing him of sexually assaulting them, Hillary responded by saying, “Who is going to find out? These women are trash. Nobody’s going to believe them.” She also to this day continually supports Islam & Muslims who have zero respect for women.

But her respect and love for the military is something she would never feign or give false appearance to. She just did not like the military aids wearing their uniforms around the White House, so she asked if they would instead wear business suits to look more professional.

The foregoing lies are brought to you by The Odyssey Online, but these are just a sampling of the many lies Hillary has always told trying to become something extraordinary. And I thank my lucky stars every day for Donald Trump.

In the Event You Had Any Doubt About the Evils of Facebook

June 7, 2018

I’ll be the first to admit I do not trust the sincerity of Muslims. Perhaps because I know too much about their evil teachings, their quiet acceptance for what’s in the Quran, their treatment of women, gays, children ~especially female children, female genital mutilation, the concept of taqiyya (the sanctioned lying to gain the upper hand over the enemy) **we are all their enemy** and on and on. But like everything there must be exceptions to the rule.

Mohammad Tawhidi is a “reformist imam” from Australia who uses Facebook (I like to call it Farcebook) and other social media platforms to counter the ideology of Islamic extremism. He regularly criticizes terrorist attacks that happen all over the world hoping to establish peace. He recently commented on Farcebook sarcastically about Hamas after they launched a missile into a kindergarten in Israel targeting Jewish children (schools & hospitals being a favorite target for these pigs). As a result Farcebook banned him with no option to appeal. This is his public appeal since he has no avenue to talk to Zuckerberg or anyone else at Farcebook.

I still believe Islam is a totalitarian political ideology stuck in the 7th century, not a religion and certainly not the “religion of peace” as it is often referred to by those unwilling to see, but this guy, Mohammad Tawhidi is at least trying to make a difference in the world. Marc Zuckerberg is pond scum and Farcebook is his vehicle to support liberal, progressive, Islamic lies and hate, among all the rest of what’s found there. Farcebook is the number one “news” source worldwide, so it has tremendous influence. Zuckerberg is to be vilified and scorned. If you are still on Facebook I ask you, wtf?

Something Is Seriously Wrong

June 5, 2018

Did you ever have a choice about going to school or not, assuming you weren’t sick? No, me either. It just was. Oh we tried, but my father always said, “they wouldn’t be holding school today if they didn’t expect you to be there.” End of story. A recent article in American Thinker laments the movement of American society toward a fatherless America. In it a young cop relates to his older brother (the author) Lloyd Marcus, the unbelievable number of parents who call the police because their child refuses to go to school.

‘Boys will be boys’ is the phrase that once explained typical mischievous boys whether it was throwing rocks at passing cars or even at each other. Normal boys are reckless and rowdy, noisy and they love rough-house behavior. Not anymore, boy behavior is being beaten out of them. Young boys are being drugged so they don’t act like boys! This has gone on for a long time, but it’s even worse nowadays. Feminist organizations, encouraged by government policy are teaching young boys to be ashamed or guilty of their gender.

The #MeToo movement is just icing on the top. Boys (actually men of any age) have to be re-educated to prevent them from becoming a threat to the girls. Boys’ sexual manners must fit the feminist world, especially teenage boys. Gender lines are growing dim and transgenderism is discussed and encouraged, yes encouraged as early as pre-K.

Modern culture demonizes men across the board. Hollywood prefers the metro-sexual types (defined as a young, urban, heterosexual male with liberal political views, an interest in fashion, and a refined sense of taste). Barf! I think I prefer toxic masculinity. Sadly as a result of all this demonizing & de-sexing of men, many choose not to marry & have families. It’s too much trouble and there are too many traps laid out to “get them”. Government programs encourage single moms and let men off the hook too easily to where it’s now a given that just because you father a child (or several!) doesn’t mean you have to be responsible for that child. This is to everyone’s detriment. It means further breakdown of the nuclear family & society and there’s nobody to teach boys how to be men. It’s a forgotten skill set. Baby-daddies are missing from the scene and not just among minorities, it’s the new norm. Forty percent of children are born to unwed mothers. A snapshot of single mother families is not an encouraging one. Children cannot learn everything they need from their mother. And mothers need the support of men to help raise the children. Both boys and girls needs male role models for a lot of different reasons.

Sick & Tired Of Carrying Dead Wood & Paying For It Too

May 27, 2018

There’s need for big-time reform in the federal government,  but one of the biggies for me is civil service reform and President Trump is chipping away at it. Next the states who are all being bled to death by public sector unions should follow suit. Don’t get me wrong, the unions had their place in our history but they have grown to big and too powerful and too costly both fiscally and to our liberty. If you think I am using hyperbole in saying that public sector unions are costing us our liberty you are not paying attention.

Nowhere in our US Constitution is authorization given to the massive unelected, unaccountable 4th branch of government, the federal bureaucracy, the administrative state and yet they make most of the laws today, they mete out massive fines and even jail terms to any who may go cross-ways to their intention. We didn’t elect they, we cannot get rid of them. They remain in place no matter who wins an election and operate seemingly free from any punishment or harm.

Trump promised to drain the swamp and he’s keeping his word. According to the Washington Examiner the President signed three executive orders Friday containing sweeping reforms that weaken protections for federal workers and eliminate perks for the unions that represent them.

This is what Trump accomplished in these EOs:

  1.  From now on unions will be charged rent for federal office space
  2. Unions will not be reimbursed for travel expenses or for hours spent appealing worker firings
  3. Going forward, federal workers must spend 75 percent of their time on government work (WTF did you ever get away with that kind of job performance?)
  4. Federal agencies must publicly post union contracts in an online repository
  5. No longer will leniency for one worker set a precedent protecting others (an Obama era policy) from firing, and going forward there will be shortened review periods preceding discipline for poor-performing employees

Unfortunately President Trump has had to go the executive order route because Congress has failed once again to act as our representatives in this matter. In fact, I’d go as far as to say they like turning this part of their job over to the bureaucracy. Then they don’t have to take the heat from their constituents, they can blame everything on faceless, nameless pencil-pushers & bean-counters.

Bad Governance Based on Good Intentions

May 23, 2018

You cannot get any more leftist, Dimocratic (not a typo!), progressive or re-distributive than Seattle, Washington, but this is really over the top. Hat-tip the Daily Wire from an article titled “How To Destroy a Major City”. Amazon, Microsoft and Starbucks will soon be paying yet another punitive tax – a “head tax” a for every employee ($275) charged to major companies to combat homelessness. Talk about driving businesses away, what are they thinking? Amazon is now rethinking their plans for expansion into new areas. The City Council can’t get enough of citizens’ money to give to someone else. First it was the $15 minimum wage law and though the reported effects are mixed depending on who did the study, most restaurant owners admitted they did have to raise menu prices and add a service fees in order to keep hiring levels the same. Now Seattle is looking at another huge property tax increases after a 17% bump in 2017.

Meanwhile Seattle has spent billions on useless light rail that not enough commuters will ever use. By the way, the light in light rail refers to the very common low ridership. It’s great for shipping freight, but not people. Costs continue to exceed estimates and ridership nearly always underperforms. According The Hill,Trump’s preliminary budget in 2017 calls for eliminating all federal funding to Amtrak’s national network and $499 million in cuts from the TIGER grant program, which also funds passenger rail. On the other hand, those who support government rail claim to be about progress – yet in the case of passenger rail – they want the government to force taxpayers to subsidize an 18th century technology that more than 95 percent of motorists don’t want or use.

But back to the liberal destruction of major cities. They also waste money on such things as bike lanes and rental bike programs that continually fail. Free (no such thing!) preschool is never far from their lips and free community college tuition to high school graduates is another feel-good favorite. This folks is how you destroy a major city. 48% of Americans in a recent poll were in favor of a guaranteed minimum wage. They point to Finland, but what they don’t say is that Finland has scrapped the idea after 2 years. This will destroy our country. If you think socialism is a good idea please get the hell out and go to Cuba or Venezuela where they have lots of good ideas like this.
