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.

My faith in government restored by a trip to Washington D.C.? No.

October 11, 2018

Sadly I have to admit my recent trip to Washington D.C. did not restore my faith in government -at all. Don’t get me wrong I’d never been to the capitol before so it was great seeing the monuments and all the grand buildings & institutions we’ve heard about all our lives. But I admit I have a somewhat jaded or jaundiced view of politics, politicians and generally the people who populate the Washington D.C. area. I mean why is it the zip code with the highest per capita income? Because they live off the largess of the reluctant taxpayer!

First thing I notice after spotting the Washington Monument on our taxi ride in from the airport which I acknowledge was so cool, is the license place for the District of Columbia. It says “Taxation without representation”. And I thought wait a minute what makes them think they have any less representation than any of us rubes. I’ve tried to call my representatives in Washington. I’ve written them and emailed them more than once. Fugetaboutit as they say in Jersey. It doesn’t happen. Write a letter and you’re lucky if you even remember what you wrote about when you get the vague “thank you for you input and concern” letter back. Send an email and you get an auto reply, again vague and useless. And where’s the representation when they pass monster bills and budgets they don’t even read?? Call them and more often than not you get some flunky answering the phone who’ll tell you they haven’t taken a stand on the issue or they’re not sure yet which way they’ll vote on it. Ha, representation. Cry me a river.

We did get to tour the Capitol and I was pleased to see that in the Visitor Center they have a statue of King Kamehameha (a smaller replica of those which stand in front of Ioloni Palace in Honolulu and in Kapa’au where he was born on the Big Island), which stood out very nicely. They apparently even drape it with fresh flower leis on King Kamehameha Day!

I also learned that the Capitol dome is made out of cast iron.

The original dome was made out of wood sheathed on the outside by a layer of copper. It burned down in 1851 and cast iron was chosen as a replacement because it wouldn’t catch fire and it was cheaper, lighter, and less time-consuming to work with, than marble or other stonework.

We had a tour arranged by Tulsi Gabbard, our representative. She of course was not there so one of her staff escorted us via underground tunnel from her office to the Capitol building. You see they, Senators and Congressmen & women don’t like to rub elbows with us guys, or to have to deal with the mostly lousy Washington D.C. weather (either too hot & muggy, or freezing cold), so they get from their offices by underground tunnels & “members only” elevators. I won’t lie, it was impressive. The rotunda is beautiful and ornate beyond belief as it should be in the greatest country in the world. We even got to sit in the Senate gallery while they were in session -and see the bastards up close! Of course this came after strict instructions about accepted behavior (nothing other than sitting there like bumps on a log) -no talking, facial expressions, outbursts, applause or anything else is to be tolerated. I did find it surprising that they still begin each day of business with an opening prayer. But the Senators are so catered to, they don’t even have to open the doors to the Senate chamber to let themselves in! Pages, who are in their junior year of high school, station themselves inside the doors and whisk them open for the approaching Senator so they don’t have to lower themselves to such a plebeian task. I tell you these people are pampered and they expect to be. It’s downright sickening and already knowing how they govern (all for their own power & financial gain) it did not restore my already tainted view of the body politic.

What the left can screw up for the rest of us

October 8, 2018

Columbus Day celebrating the landing of Christopher Columbus in the Americas in 1492 has been tossed to the dustbin of history. We can no longer celebrate Columbus Day, it’s now Indigenous Peoples Day because of Columbus’s enslavement and exploitation of native people. According to the Washington Post, Columbus Day has been a federal holiday since 1934. But numerous cities and states have ditched celebrating it since 1992, when Berkeley, Calif. (where else??), became the first city to rename the holiday Indigenous Peoples Day in favor of recognizing Native Americans.

Of course evil never rests. The left has just spent the last few weeks demonizing Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and his family and friends because of their obsession that Roe v Wade would be surely be overturned if we got another conservative on the highest court.

When that didn’t work and it looked like he was going to get confirmed they went for the jugular in the form of false sexual allegations. Trouble is they piled on and each allegation designed to create more doubt just pissed people off more. They didn’t win the battle but they managed to sully the entire nomination process, the Senate and themselves in the process. The latter is the only good thing about it. They may have kicked the beehive of otherwise Republican mid-term apathy that will come back to bite them. And I hope it does!

So what else can they wreck? Unfortunately there is no end to this madness.
