Never Forget

November 11, 2018

Never forget is what the Israelis say about the Holocaust. They live by this credo. It is why most Israeli citizens are required to serve in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) for a period of between two and three years.

        Vietnam Soldiers Memorial in Washington D.C.

Sometimes I think America should bring back the draft and draft women too. Of course it’s easy for me to say being way beyond the age for that type of obligation. But just think for a second of how Americans are so divided these days. Think of how young people have little or no appreciation for our veterans or those who sacrifice so much by serving in the military even if they do not see combat. How much better would we be if our young people learned discipline, responsibility and self-reliance by serving in the military? My guess is we’d be a lot better and have a lot fewer snowflakes and maybe even less PC crap.

Today is the day for us to renew our reverence for our veterans and their families, and remember “All gave some and some gave all”. I recently had the privilege to visit the Vietnam War Memorial Wall in Washington D.C. and to look up the name of the brother of my best friend in high school, William J. McFarland.

He was so young but look at any of the photos of the soldiers who stormed Normandy. They were young too.

Why do we offer up these kids for war? And more importantly why do they go? They do it for all kinds of reasons, love of country, patriotism, family tradition to name but a few, but the they do it and that’s what we should never forget.

Take time today to remember our veterans and all who serve or have served and especially for those who made the ultimate sacrifice fighting for our freedom.

Everyone happy about the elections? No? No wonder.

November 7, 2018

Are we ever really happy about elections? Well a lot of us were happy about the election results in 2016 because we dodged a bullet named Hillary. But here’s the sad truth about elections.

Get this through your head:  Congress will NEVER vote to reduce their power or their spending.

Go to ConventionofStates.com and find out how we can achieve that without the consent of Congress. It takes 34 states to pass the Convention of States Resolution in their State House & Senate to trigger the convention. We already have 12 states that have done so. Help us get to 34!

Election day eve.

November 5, 2018

America is the greatest country in the world, but sadly most Americans don’t know it. Hat-tip, The Daily Signal. The truth is, every American, each and every one of us, is privileged. We’re privileged because we are American. No, it’s not white privilege, it’s American and it’s available to everyone who calls themselves American. We don’t build fences or walls to keep people in and the reason so many people want to come here is what too many Americans so flippantly take for granted—things like life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And by the way, there wouldn’t be hoards of people “caravaning” to our border if we were so racist, sexist, misogynist, etc. That’s all the liberal lie.

So get your sorry butt to the polls tomorrow and VOTE -and take a few people with you! And don’t be fooled by the draw of free stuff the liberals, socialists & Democrats are promising everyone because that’s a lie too.

Here’s another great tune to get you excited about being American and voting for your future. And play it LOUD!

Let’s hope we have a Tuesday evening tomorrow night like that great one in 2016!

BLEXIT -the black exodus from the Democratic Party

October 31, 2018

You’ve heard of Brexit, the Britain’s exit from the European Union, well now in America there’s BLEXIT, only this is the exodus of blacks from the Democratic Party. Democrats have counted on and received about 90% voting loyalty from blacks for decades, but blacks are now experiencing a revolution in thinking. They’re starting to look around their communities, many of which have been run by Democrats for the last 100 years and are awakening to the fact that things have not gotten better. In too many cities the black communities are riddled with crime, poverty, economic stagnation and failing schools.

Some of the credit must go to President Trump who asked the question many times during his campaign:  “What has the Democratic Party done for the black community?” And possibly more important, “What have they got to lose?”, meaning they should consider switching parties to the Republicans.

Let’s review some simple facts:

  • Democrats have made the Civil Rights movement into a Civil Rights Industry (Al Sharpton, Jessie Jackson, CNN & Don Lemon, etc.)
  • Democrats are against school choice because they don’t want parents to be able to take their kids out of failing schools
  • Democratic political leaders get elected by capitalizing on & monetizing ‘white guilt’ (blame white people, slavery, etc.)
  • Democrats encourage the chain of poverty by pushing welfare, food stamps and other government give-aways
  • Democrats started the KKK & the first Grand Wizard was certified at a DNC convention in 1868
  • Democrats favors abortion that has decimated the black community. Margaret Sanger is a hero of the Democrats.
  • Democrats voted over and over to keep slavery in place
  • Democrats have allowed women to marry the government & men to abandon their financial support of their children

“Black lives have never, ever mattered to the Democratic Party” . . . . . Candace Owens

October 27, 2018

I first learned about Candace Owens on Twitter. Her handle at that time was @RedPillBlack (she’s now @RealCandaceO). I had to look up what that meant. The red pill represents an awakening and Owens in black, hence “red pill black”. She described on her YouTube channel her transition from a liberal to a conservative and here she is breaking the sad news to her parents.

She became more vocal and popular and somewhere along the line came to the attention Charlie Kirk who at age 18 started Turning Point USA. Kirk hired her and they now work together. You may also recall that Owens was praised publicly by Kanye West for urging blacks to think for themselves and to “get off the plantation” of the Democratic Party. The video below is Owens speaking at the recent Young Black Leadership Summit held in Washington D.C. She is making a difference and the Democrats are terrified.

I’ve been following Turning Point USA ever since I found out they published a Professor Watchlist exposing and documenting college professors who discriminate against conservative students and advance leftist propaganda in the classroom. Obviously that could be a full-time job in itself.

Another thing Turning Point has been doing a great job of is outreach on college campuses. Their mission is to build the most organized, active, and powerful conservative grassroots activist network on college campuses across the country. And they are making tremendous headway. President Trump even showed up to speak to the attendees of the Young Black Leadership Summit. This scares the Democrats too. Please do all you can do to support TPUSA.com, Candace Owens & President Trump.

What do Easter European countries know that we in the Wests don’t seem to get?

October 25, 2018

Hat-tip American Thinker. Countries where communist regimes had lasted for as long as four decades and left a permanent mark on local population possess different experiences and understanding of the world affairs from those of their western counterparts.  They have, for example, good knowledge of what socialism is and how extreme some left-wing policies can actually be in real life. This is why when you talk to immigrants from Eastern Europe they are almost invariably conservative. They have lived life under socialists or communists and they don’t like the way our country is headed.

According to a 2018 Gallup poll the majority of 18-29 year-olds view Socialism favorably (hat-tip Prager University). This should scare the hell out of all of us because it means they are listening the Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’ of the world. They are falling for total government support & the free stuff. Make that the promised free stuff because anyone with 2 brains cells (BTW, can you believe Ocasio Cortez graduated from Boston college with a degree in economics??) knows that Medicare for all means Medicare for none!

Here’s a good place to start:  The Three Values that Make America Great, The American Trinity.

More from Prager University later, but if you want to throw them a little love, you can right here. BTW did you know PragerU was suing Google & YouTube for discrimination and censoring their conservative videos. It’s a battle for our culture and our country folks. No kidding.

Look we’ve turned into Cuba & Venezuela

October 19, 2018

It’s hard to remember what America used to be like. We are turning more and more toward Socialist ideals -and that’s just what they are ideals -utopia in fact. Socialism has been tried over and over and failed over and over with the accompanying death of MILLIONS of people. And yet more and more people either currently in office or candidates seeking office espouse the virtues of “medicare of all”, free college, guaranteed minimum income and the rest of it. The anti-capitalism being fed to public school & college students is part of the reason, but it will not end well.

This sideshow at the United Nations -a U.S. sponsored campaign aimed to criticize the human rights situation in Cuba could just as easily be an Antifa mob at President Trump’s inauguration, college students shouting down conservative speakers or the Democrats protesting Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation.

Remember all you anti-capitalists, capitalism has lifted more people out of poverty WORLDWIDE than any thing else.

If you really want to help the poor, stand up for capitalism.
