I’m not the only one!

April 5, 2023

Donald Trump cannot win without acknowledging his flaws.

I’ve been saying this for quite some time, but my reach is small. So I’m going to excerpt from this article I saw today on American Thinker by John Green. No offense to John (we emailed back and forth), but in the interest of time & space I decided not to re-blog the entire article. You can find the entire article on AmericanThinker.com Enjoy and let me know what you think.

He must win bigger than ever before because the fraud has gotten awfully big since 2020.

There’s the “Never Trump” coalition who hate him and refuse to acknowledge his accomplishments, but there is also a growing army of Trump followers who will tolerate no criticism of Trump –the “only Trump” coalition. These groups are equally bad. The “only Trump” deny his failures. There needs to be a discussion of his lapses or the chance for improvement is obscured.

So let’s dig in:

  • Trump increased the national debt and left America on a path to financial ruin. The national debt increased by almost $7.8 trillion. Congress passed spending bills, but he signed them.
  • He made numerous bad choices in his Cabinet and executive leadership positions. He fired James Comey but allowed the weaponization of the FBI to continue when he appointed Christopher Wray (recommended by Chris Christy).
  • President Trump signed the Government Employee Fair Treatment Act, which guarantees back pay to federal employees in the event of a government shutdown.  The act ensures that future government shutdowns are little more than a paid vacation for government employees and undermines the ability of fiscal hawks to force spending restraint.
  • Donald Trump legitimized Dr. Anthony Fauci.  He may be a critic of Fauci now, but during his presidency, he shared the stage with him.  He even awarded Fauci a Presidential Commendation along with numerous other employees of the CDC and NIH who lied to us about the pandemic.
  • During the COVID pandemic, it was President Trump who unleashed the federal bureaucracy to trample on our civil liberties.  With the authority granted them by Donald Trump, federal agencies censored our speech, took away our property rights, and interfered in our medical decisions.
  • He had a chance to do away with the most offensive intrusion into our lives by the federal government in a generation: Obamacare.  He had a Republican-led House and Senate that had vowed to repeal Obamacare.  He squandered the opportunity when he insulted the one squishy senator (John McCain) whose vote he needed. 

Our time calls for a great president.  We need someone who can achieve durable advancement of our freedom — not fleeting executive orders that can be undone by the next president.  That greatness is unachievable without public recognition of Trump’s wins and his willingness to learn from his losses.

The difference between a good athlete and a great athlete is not just natural physical ability.  It also depends on the availability of good training and a willingness to be coached.

Remember, we’re all in this together! But remember when the FBI and the DOJ used to be our friends? Not anymore. They are tools of the Biden Administration to punish anyone opposing them. They are pushing for a Civil War. Don’t be goaded into it. Never submit, but keep it peaceful. It’s time for the Great Awakening.

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.

We Do Have A White Problem

August 16, 2017

This is a reblog by Rich Logis  from American Thinker.

Don’t get me wrong. I am disgusted with Republicans, the supposed party of smaller government, fewer taxes & regulations and more freedom -yeah right!

America’s white Democrat problem

Yes, America does have a white people problem. But it’s not the problem you think.

The problem, now and in our history, originates from white Democrats.

It’s whites who elect Democrats, who fund them, who support them.  It’s whites who make up the vast majority of millionaires, billionaires, and their progeny in the U.S., and the vast majority of those millionaires, billionaires, and their progeny vote Democrat.

It’s white Democrats who have made possible the municipal Democrat empires in Chicago (run by Democrats for the last 30,000 consecutive days); Detroit (22,000); Philadelphia (20,000); Baltimore (18,000); and Flint, where city residents drink water with lead in it.

A not believable but true fact is that Democrats have run Chicago longer than Stalin ran the Soviet Union, longer than the Castros so far run Cuba, and longer than the Kims have run North Korea.

It’s white Democrats who have made San Francisco, Boston, New York, and Seattle unaffordable to most Americans.

It’s white Democrats who live, breathe, and walk hypocrisy, in their multimillion-dollar gentrified brownstones and seaside mansions; as “environmentalists,” gallivanting around the world in private, polluting jets; as gazillionaires who demand “redistribution of wealth”; and as politicians, who have scammed millions into buying the occult disguised as diversity and propagated the culture of victimization as the new celebrity status.

It’s white Democrats who cheered with a fetish for socialist Bernie Sanders, a messenger of “free,” even though he earns more than 96% of America; has a seven-figure net worth; and owns three homes, including a beachfront residence.

It’s white Democrats who have been revising and whitewashing our history – the same way their murdering tyrant dictator influences did, and continue to do so today.

It’s white Democrats who cause most of the commotion and violence at their riots, some now disguised as “counter-protests.”

It’s white Democrats who craft the narratives in the DMIC – the Democrat Media Industrial Complex (which is owned by Holly-weird, run by – you guessed it – whites).

It’s white Democrats who invented the KKK, separate but equal, segregation, Jim Crow laws, and Rosa Parks at the back of the bus.

It’s white Democrats who amplify the call that future generations of Americans pay reparations for slavery, even though not a single American today benefited from, or was harmed by, slavery.

It’s white Democrats who wish to impeach a legally and democratically elected president, simply because their (white) candidate lost and lost badly, in a historic and unprecedented fashion.

It’s white Democrats who amplify claims of “white privilege” and “white fragility.”  White privilege?  Without whites, a Democrat would never get elected to any public office.

Yes, we have a white people problem, and there’s no end in sight.

Reblog from American Thinker: America’s Black Abusive Boyfriend

July 11, 2016

This is re-blogged from American Thinker. I thought it was so right on I decided to interrupt my travel blogs from Italy as I wanted to post this before it was no longer topical. I apologize right up front to those (Aunt Evelyn) who are here only to read my travel stuff. Here it is (sorry it’s a little long).

Obama, the Aloof Rageaholic   at-logo

Once upon a time, I dated an angry man.  The list of sins that ignited his rage was random.  One that stands out is slamming his car door too hard. His rage would flare from tension to full Clockwork Orange violence in seconds. And I don’t mean snarky remarks. I mean throwing suitcases.

What never made sense about Angry Man’s rage was I could never trace the root of it.  He was swimming in cash, a sensational job, and the constitution of a bull.

I finally escaped Angry Man.

But, for the past eight years, I have watched white America and its dynamic with the angry black person. It was that old dangerous dance: the person who is addicted to anger and the victim who tap-dances and begs for the bully to be nice.

Unchecked rage often ends in homicide. On July 7, 2016, in Dallas, it did.

How did this happen?

Inexplicably, President Obama has become America’s black abusive boyfriend.  He seduced with an aloof charm, quick wit, and a Spockish calm.  But like all ragaholics, we did not know what was beneath that cultivated air of cool.  Obama had rage.

He has stoked the fires of black Americans’ rage, aided by acolyte Eric Holder, with the fervor of a man chased by a lynch mob pre Civil War.

From all accounts, both biased and neutral, the source of Obama’s black rage is as mystical as Kardashian modesty.  Obama has not had a path strewn with rose petals: he had a path strewn with platinum petals, emeralds and Hermes Birkins. Obama was a man with a work history that would not land him a position as an assistant state public defender in today’s economy. With that CV, he became the President of the largest budget and military in the world.  And the reason he won the job, largely, was due to being black.

What is making our black boyfriend so angry? We not only gave him a place at the table, we gave him the table, the Kohler kitchen and a Nate Berkus styled mansion.

Obama is clever, crafty and his delivery of a joke outstanding. His reasonable, didactic manner is reassuring.

But, his pathological compulsion to frame black Americans as quivering citizens facing a virtual holocaust from cops is obsessive, and false.

And it has now resulted in murder. But this was easy to predict, especially for anyone schooled in dealing with entitled, enraged bullies.

Obama, rarely angry, showed indignation when a giant black thug lunged at a petite shopkeeper, after he stole some blunt rolling papers, disobeyed police commands, and was then shot after reaching for the cop’s gun inside a patrol car.

Conversely, Obama was yucking it up on the golf course minutes after discussing American journalist James Foley, who had his head hacked off with a dull blade by ISIS sub humans.

Other black boyfriends were watching. And when detached Obama decided now he would show his black man cojones, it was the wink to other angry blacks to go forth and do harm.  Looting stores (stupidly, usually black business), white knock out games, and vitriol spewed out by racists like Michael Eric Dyson became not only okay, but also the only script allowed.

Do we whites hate blacks?  Do our angry black boyfriends have a genuine fear of the mousey white Americans, who apologize, grovel, and lose their job at the hands of other whites, if they slightly offend the sensibilities of these terrorized black Americans?

Let’s follow the money. This is the country that rewards single black (and other) mothers, who reproduce with many different partners and their offspring with the following non-exclusive list of wonderful free goodies:

Prenatal care, medical care, prescriptions, mental health care, food, free or reduced housing, daycare, cell phones, tuition, greatly reduced admissions criteria for entry in college based on race, textbooks books, tutoring and specific job placement assistance upon graduating, if they go to and finish college.

If blacks graduate, local, state and federal employers, as well as international corporations set aside jobs, well paying ones, just for blacks. Their competence, and abilities are a secondary consideration.  It’s Sweden in America for our angry blacks.

Is this the source of their outrage?

No. This cradle to grave largess is not acknowledged by enraged blacks or bootlicking white apologists. The party line for rage is their treatment by the police. They represent, with illiterate rhetoric, that police brutality against them has made this country more akin to the Congo than Canada.

More whites are killed by law enforcement than blacks are.  Angry blacks kill other angry blacks, more than all other races combined.  These facts have been cited over and over. No one, especially breathless pundits, minds these facts.

I have a big secret to tell all the angry blacks that demonize cops: Whites are afraid of cops. I am leery of cops.  This is why I do not make sudden moments around armed men who can legally shoot me, or tell them to fuck off, or act furtive in my pockets when detained.

Critically, if my boyfriend were bleeding from a gunshot wound, I would apply pressure to his wound and render aid, not calmly video his death so I could attain celebrity status.

Anger is addictive.  America is the abused spouse, nervously watching her black boyfriend pace, punch the wall, and be angry. Because being perpetually pissed off around weak people gets to be quite fun. Consequences never come, and others learn to let you have your way, or else. Untouchable entitlement is thrilling.

What will America, the bruised girlfriend, do with her angry black boyfriend? Will she get up and “restructure his function” or quiver in the corner, and lose the freedom that made her believe she had value in the world?

Both Iran & Our State Dept is Lying (again) – Imagine That

January 16, 2016

This whole capture of 2 Navy patrol boats and their crew, the apology from the CO and the propaganda video they took part in has stuck in my craw from when I first read about it. My father was a Navy fighter pilot and also at one time served as the navigator on an aircraft carrier, so I smelled a rat from the beginning, but American Thinker tells the story (re-blogged below) in great detail from the perspective of a former Navy SEAL. It worth your time and attention.

Flash! A former Navy SEAL, Matt Bracken, just blew up what I have been calling “a pack of lies from the US and Iran” on what the hell happened that got our boats captured and taken to the Farsi Islands.

Remember: the single most dangerous area in all the Persian Gulf is a small group of Island in almost the middle of the heavily travelled shipping lanes that is a major naval base for Iran and the HQ of the radical IRG for special operations of their own against all the countries abutting the Gulf. A top Marine told me our two boats were special ops boats with crews that delivered our own SEALS… the direct rivals of the IRG on Farsi.

The idea that toxic area would be a possible rendezvous site area for a refueling is idiotic… as is the idea of commo and navigation failure. You might as reasonably expect Gibraltar to be a rendezvous point for resupply for the Nazi subs in Das Boot.

If the US press today weren’t evenly split between toadys and military incoherents, they should have seen what has been clear to anyone who has any military experience.

Here is Navy SEAL, Matt Bracken’s stunning take:

I rarely pull out my dusty old trident, but in this case, here goes. I was a Navy SEAL officer in the 1980s, and this kind of operation (transiting small boats in foreign waters) was our bread and butter. Today, these boats both not only had radar, but multiple GPS devices, including chart plotters that place your boat’s icon right on the chart. The claim by Iran that the USN boats “strayed into Iranian waters” is complete bull$‪#‎it.

For an open-water transit between nations, the course is studied and planned in advance by the leaders of the Riverine Squadron, with specific attention given to staying wide and clear of any hostile nation’s claimed territorial waters. The boats are given a complete mechanical check before departure, and they have sufficient fuel to accomplish their mission plus extra. If, for some unexplainable and rare circumstance one boat broke down, the other would tow it, that’s why two boats go on these trips and not one! It’s called “self-rescue” and it’s SOP.

This entire situation is in my area of expertise. I can state with complete confidence that both Iran and our own State Department are lying. The boats did not enter Iranian waters. They were overtaken in international waters by Iranian patrol boats that were so superior in both speed and firepower that it became a “hands up!” situation, with automatic cannons in the 40mm to 76mm range pointed at them point-blank. Surrender, hands up, or be blown out of the water. I assume that the Iranians had an English speaker on a loudspeaker to make the demand. This takedown was no accident or coincidence, it was a planned slap across America’s face.

Just watch. The released sailors will be ordered not to say a word about the incident, and the Iranians will have taken every GPS device, chart-plotter etc off the boats, so that we will not be able to prove where our boats were taken.

The “strayed into Iranian waters” story being put out by Iran and our groveling and appeasing State Dept. is utter and complete BS from one end to the other.

Leftist Tactics MUST Be Deployed to Defeat Hillary from Now Till Election 2016

August 24, 2013

Excerpted from American Thinker’s Stopping the Hillary Juggernaut

Actually, Hillary Clinton is already not only the frontrunner for her party’s nomination, but also the favorite to win against any GOP candidate. Stopping Hillary should be the first priority for conservatives.

Identify her greatest weakness, isolate it, and pound on it from now until November 2016.  In Hillary’s case, the weakness is Benghazi.what difference does it make

Romney was shadowed during the primaries by protestors who heckled him unmercifully about his corporate background and his stance opposing new taxes on the rich. Similar tactics should be used against Hillary, but they need to start now.

Peaceful volunteers need to shadow Hillary wherever she speaks.  Preferably volunteers wearing T-shirts emblazoned with photos of the Benghazi victims and carrying placards with their photos and birth and death dates as well. Every time Hillary speaks, those peaceful protestors need to remind voters of where the four died:




After a few minutes, they might repeat the names of the four heroes, and remind Hillary that their safety was her responsibility:

Chris, Sean, Glen, and “Tee,”

Your responsibility

Chris, Sean, Glen, and “Tee,”

Your responsibility

Finally, they could segue into a five-beat refrain:




“What difference does it make?” is one of the most callous and self-serving statements ever uttered by a high government official in the history of the United States.  Conservatives need to remind people of that.

Ending here with one of my own favorite chants:

Killary lied & people died!

Killary lied & people died!

Killary lied & people died!

In the words of Camille Paglia, a registered Democrat, “Benghazi was treated as a public relations matter to message rather than as the major and outrageous attack on the U.S. that it was. And what exactly has she ever accomplished — beyond bullishly covering for her philandering husband?”

Sleeping With The Enemy; Blacks & Other Minorities In Government-Aided Downward Spiral

June 7, 2012

Yeah for Scott Walker! He proved to Wisconsin and the nation, that sound fiscal policy can win out over favoritism politics. Exit polls show 38% of those voting for Walker in the Governor’s recall election were union members or came from union households.

What I want to know is when will minorities -particularly African Americans, stop sleeping with the enemy? (hat-tip American Thinker) What do I mean? I mean why do they robotically vote for Democrats over and over and over? Democratic programs like food stamps, affirmative action and welfare when surveyed in the rear view mirror after multiple generations have gone that route, have proven unsuccessful. Not only unsuccessful, but overwhelmingly detrimental to minorities. Too many people- across all ethnic groups today rely on government safety nets instead of their own motivation of succeed.

“Today’s government is yesterday’s plantation” according to Blacklash author, Deneen Borelli. (start around 0:33)

Thomas Sowell, an African American author and economist subscribes to the “pull yourself up by the bootstraps” philosophy. He believes that government intervention to ensure a fair playing field has hurt blacks chances for equality making them more reliant on favors or handouts and less able to compete.

Effective policies to help African Americans says Sowell, should be built on the strengths of African American institutions and families, but government has done an excellent job of destroying the family and made victims of African Americans by fueling racist sentiment. The Reverends are old hands at this, as is our own President and really most of the Democratic party.

The nation’s first African American President has severely damaged his fellow blacks. He who promised to unite us. You know the post-racial and post partisan president? All he has done is divide us; by race, gender, income and sexual preference.

Aloha, Mikie

~Remember:  The government has NO resources. They produce NOTHING. They can only take from one group and give to others they feel more worthy of their largess (buying votes). Support tax reform!
