Maybe the truth is that Jeb Bush really doesn’t want to run; after all he’s acting that way

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

Most of the time politics is a game played on several layers and to paraphrase the great line from the movie Chinatown, nobody really knows what goes on in politics which brings us to Jeb Bush.

As the younger, better looking and more “conservative” son in the Bush family Jeb has been pushed toward a run at the presidency. The talk started early in his tenure as Florida’s governor. Conservatives that never warmed to George W. Bush’s “compassionate conservatism” longed for the real thing. The conservative blogosphere asked if we didn’t elect the wrong Bush.

Now we are approaching 2016 and Jeb Bush is in the spotlight and a media favorite because he would be so easy to beat. Those who even casually watch politics know that if by some miracle Karl Rove arranged Jeb’s nomination his presence on the GOP’s ticket would cause conservatives to stay home in numbers that would make their participation in 2012 look downright impressive.

Maybe it is time to lift the veil from our own eyes and see what this man has been showing us; “sometimes a banana is just a banana” as the old line goes.

With the exception of Rush Limbaugh, the people who get paid to comment on politics aren’t being honest about Jeb. At some level they have to know that he is doing everything possible to insure that he doesn’t get the nomination from the putatively conservative Republican Party.

Now we have to ask ourselves if anyone who actually wanted to be a Republican candidate for president in 2016 would support the causes Jeb Bush supports.

At first Jeb may have been sincerely wrong about the value of common core; yet in the face of mounting evidence that it is a crashing failure he has stood by the wreck masquerading as educational policy. Could he be doing so to help grease his own skids and slip down and away from this race?

He has come out in support of Loretta Lynch for Attorney General in spite of – or would that be because – she is loathed by the Tea party? It is worth noting that no one asked him and he could have merely brushed aside the question.

He has expressed support for amnesty by gratuitously characterizing it as “an act of love” to rub salt in conservatives wounds.

His position on Obamacare is the wholly unacceptable “repeal but replace” which makes it a Republican program.

If this was a prize fight Jeb could be accused of taking a dive. It sure looks like it.


Aesop’s fable of the scorpion and the turtle coming true in Italy and no one will speak out

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

A British journalist is being called “controversial” because she has spoken the truth about Italy’s efforts to save Islamist warriors from drowning off its shores. Katie Hopkins has called for gunships to finish off what is left of the latest invasion of Europe by crazed Islamists bent on destroying the continent in a fiery holocaust to please their god.

Hopkins has suggested that, “You may as well set up a Libya-to-Italy P&O ferry,” which unfortunately is just what has developed between Libya and Italy.

Common sense is always in very short supply when politicians consider how to respond to the ongoing Islamist invasion in Europe and America. Nevertheless, if it were to be applied to the motives of the ISIS forces in Libya it would be easy to see that they are invading Europe with the help of the Europeans themselves.

Aesop’s turtle scorpion comes to mind as we watch this invasion unfold. As the scorpion who “rewards” the turtle who saves his life by stinging him to death, the Islamists who are concealed in these “refugee” boats will sting and kill many Europeans.

Does it not occur to anyone in Europe that ISIS is a gang of vicious swine who would not send away enemies of Islam? They cut the heads off of those they see as enemies; they don’t send them on a ferry ride to sunny Italy.

The sad and disturbing part of stories like this is that whenever anyone stands up and points out that these invaders are scorpions who want to kill us, they become the object of ridicule and worse from the Islamists’ useful idiots in the media.

Undeterred by threats and ridicule Hopkins responds to the Islamist sycophants in the leftist media by saying, “…. I don’t care. Show me pictures of coffins, show m e bodies floating in water, play violins and show me skinny people looking sad. I still don’t care. Because in the next minute you’ll show me pictures of aggressive young men at Calais, spreading like the deadly norovirus on a cruise ship. Make no mistake, these migrants are like cockroaches. They might look a bit “Bob Geldof’s Ethiopia circa 1984”, but they are built to survive a nuclear bomb. They are survivors.”

Yes THEY are the survivors and WE are the ones who will die at their hands.

Gaddafi once said, “We have 50 million Muslims in Europe They are signs that Allah will grant Islam victory over Europe without swords, without guns, without conquest [we] will turn [Europe] into a Muslim continent within a few decades.”


A smarter Walmart now closes store for “plumbing problems” not union rules and still wins

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

The budding “revolutionary guards” among WalMart employees may be learning a lesson about economics in the real world; a course they were never offered during their substandard public educations.

The pressure from militant employees and union thugs has brought about a series of raises for WalMart workers, which is supposed to be good news. But is it?

Some of these raises will start immediately and others will follow until all REMAINING workers will see remarkable increases in their salaries; some will be getting $80 per week raises.

Nevertheless, WalMart has not become the largest retailer in the world by voluntarily shrinking its own already razor thin profit margin. The “hard fought – hard won” raises have a price tag that will be paid by some of the very “revolutionaries” who fought so hard for them.

Since the new pay structure was announced, WalMart has experienced an outbreak of “faulty plumbing” in some of its stores. These suspiciously handy “plumbing failures” have necessitated closing at least five stores due to “ongoing plumbing issues that will require extensive repairs.” A review of the listed stores shows that one, in Pico Rivera California, has been the scene of ongoing employee work stoppages and picketing.

During the widely reported incidents, a worker was quoted as saying, she “walked out …, missing her afternoon shift, because “when we speak out, they cut my hours in retaliation and they have me pull pallets, which is very hard work. I’m a single mom and I can’t afford them cutting my hours.”

Apparently she never heard the story of WalMart’s Jonquiere Quebec store. In 2004 its workers voted to join a union. In response the company closed the store six months later citing the union’s requirement that new workers be added and new work rules be imposed. Yes, the union appealed to the Canadian Supreme Court and won meaning the 190 fired workers may eventually get back pay with interest, but Walmart had made its point. The store has yet to reopen.

This time Walmart has apparently learned its lesson: Say you’re closing because of plumbing problems not union rules!

The Pico Rivera store will be closed for at least six months. Has Walmart now added “lessons from the real world” like “don’t tug on Superman’s cape” to its “employee benefits package?

There are those who will try to make us believe that the United States is in a serious state of decline and that the only way to stop it is to turn everything over to the government. Healthcare? We are one step away from single payer. If you want to know how well that works, take a look at England’s Public Health. Infrastructure? That was part of the billion dollar stimulus Obama just had to have. I haven’t seen any benefit from that in my area, have you? Solar Energy? A full posting could not list all the money thrown away on that albatross.

And how proud can we be when we go from superpower to “leading from behind?” Does anyone even know what that means? I was never taught that particular strategy in the military and I would bet none of my fellows in the armed forces was offered that training either. Maybe that is why Obama dumped the nation’s competent generals and replaced them with those groomed to be Obama yes men and traitors to the United States; all to gain that extra star on the uniforms they were completely unfit to wear.

But then, that is the supreme arrogance of Barack Obama. His is an administration which is condescending to all before them; all but the Saudi king, that is. The allies of generations were ridiculed and pushed aside so that Obama could mingle with those of his Muslim roots. England dismissed, Israel cast aside, and Canada! CANADA? Let’s spend six years and then veto the Keystone pipeline because this administration said it wasn’t investigated enough. It was investigated longer than the time it took to fight WWII. And so now if that oil which would benefit both Canada and the US should go to China, will the greenies and Obama apologize?

Who and what is Barack Obama? Is he actually trying to destroy the country, or is he just a coward? He forcefully declared a redline in Syria, then blamed the world for it. Russia marches into Crimea, and Obama runs. They then invade Ukraine and shoot down an airliner filled with innocents and what has Obama done? It was only last week that this administration sent the barest of necessities to the Ukraine to fight the Russians. We left Iraq and it was in my opinion cut and run. The people there didn’t want us to leave, yet we sent Joe Biden to negotiate. Gropin’ Joe had no idea what to do other than follow Obamas instructions to get out. Instructions, that is, which the Obama media could somehow weave into a tale of presidential courage and brilliance.

We left and look at the area now. Will Obama blame that on Bush too? Is there any place in the world where the bad guys are not stronger than they were when Obama took office? The middle East, East Africa, North Africa, Russia in Europe and Asia, China in Asia, Cuba, Argentina, Venuzuela, Central and South America. Even Mexico is telling this administration how to handle Mexican illegals. Cards are printed by the thousands in Mexico and sent to the Mexican Embassy in the US to be handed out like candy. These are now proper identification for drivers and of course voters in this country. It’s all very different from the way illegals are treated in Mexico.

Barack Obama, our narcissist-in-chief, decided that the policies of Frank Marshall Davis, his mentor, and Jerimiah Wright, his religious mentor provided all of the information necessary to run the nation. He wants this country to emulate the failed policies responsible for the social and economic decimation of the European state. Clearly, Obama took his ideas of “hope and change” from the Islamists now destroying the Middle East. Neither has any use for Christians and both want to force the lunacy of Sharia Law on the American people. It seems Barack has discovered the smooth road of tyranny that leads to hell. Clever boy, isn’t he!

Ancient Rome would not stand for an ISIS training camp eight miles from them, why is Obama doing nothing?

By Kevin “Coach” Collins

During the height of the glory years of ancient Rome its leaders grow in wealth and power by identifying threats and meeting them head on. Political correctness had no place in deliberations about what to do to counter threats. The Romans reached for their swords their banners and marched against them.

Alas those days are gone. They have been blurred and erased by clever enemies who have worked diligently to place their agents deeply into the offices of power and authority in our government and civil life. Our government our media and our schools are corrupted by lies about the nature of our self-proclaimed enemy – Islam. Theses saboteurs are always working to undermine our will to resist their evil intentions.

While these treacheries are survivable, what is not survivable is the actual tangible threat of our enemies pouring into our nation unopposed by our once great military forces.

We have reports that ISIS has a training camp in Mexico eight miles from our border and the story is largely being ignored as if doing so will somehow make it untrue. Our president has not commented on this report. Our spineless media has not asked him or the Republicans masquerading as our Congressional leaders about this; nor have any of them offered a comment. What would have happened if the Nazis tried this in 1942?

Consider the following quote from Marcus Tullius Cicero (106 -43BC) and ask yourself if Barack Obama could have even served as a slave in the Roman Senate.

“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague”
