I have heard for a long time from thousands of people complaining about not having anyone to step up to the plate and take the reins of leadership against the army of Socialist Progressive Liberal politicians and biased Media moguls who are destroying our way of life in America. Well, here he is America. Are there things not to like about him? Sure, you may not like his, arrogance, his hair, his swagger, his tone, his brashness, insulting remarks or something else about him. However, one must be impressed with his power of conviction and willingness to express it, political correctness be hanged.
His name is Donald Trump. A strong man, a non-politician who owes nobody anything and promises he will bring America back to strength, world leadership and economic success. A strong man who will stand in the wind against those in positions of political power in America and foreign nations and not back down.
The path will not be easy for him, but he seems strong enough to endure the meanness and the cunning roadside bombs set in his path by those in politics and media who wish to blow his legs off to destroy him.
Do you wonder why the powerful, Socialist, Progressive Leftists groups have mounted campaigns against him? Isn’t it strange that even those in the Republican Party Hierarchy are opposed to his very presence in the field? Why? It very well may be because he is the only candidate, if elected, who will completely change the corrupt, crony culture of Washington, empty many offices, fire department heads and close some of them down completely.
Americans have grown tired of always losing. We’re losing our exceptional-ism, losing our world leadership, losing the respect of the rest of the world, losing our sovereignty to the United Nations, losing manufacturing and our jobs to other countries, losing our military strength, losing the battle of people illegally pouring into our country, losing our freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution.
We just may be at a place in our nation’s history that a nice and politically correct person will not take the actions needed to deal effectively with the Socialists inside our country or the evil and
destructive (not so nice) leaders of our foreign enemies or the demonic Islamic Terror Organizations. Think about it…..who do you feel WILL, not can, take the necessary actions to effect these sorely needed changes?
Please forward this to anyone you wish by any means you wish.
In 2012, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann questioned the wisdom of then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton furnishing her Muslim Deputy Chief of Staff Huma Abedin with all of the sensitive/secret information a reputed Muslim Brotherhood operative could possibly desire.
Below is the take of prolific writer Jerry Todd as he describes the contempt heaped upon Bachmann by the Republican Party elite for her “Muslim Insensitivity.” The article first appeared in June of 2012.
“Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, R. MN, brought down the wrath of Allah”
By Jerry Todd, CiR staff writer
Congresswoman Michele Bachmann, R. MN, brought down the wrath of Allah on herself for noting the role, relationships and heritage of Huma Abedin, Hillary Clinton’s Deputy Chief of Staff and ever constant traveling companion. Abedin is also the ex-wife of disgraced NY Congressman Anthony Wiener.
As can be expected, John Boehner, John McCain and a lineup of RINO’s jumped in to vilify Michele along with the usual suspects. Bachmann is being chided from all sides for her “Muslim insensitivity.” She is a member of the House Select Committee on International Security, so one would assume she should have more access to security agencies input than the NY Times.
This article by the Shoebat Foundation reveals an exciting journey into the intrigue of the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood and speculation on Abedin’s role as traveling companion for the Secretary of State. Abedin seems to be doing the Muslim
Sisterhood proud with her access to all American diplomatic and security secrets!
NOTE: Obama is not clueless or out of touch, nor are the Islamist’s “camel jockeys and rag-heads.” They are shrewd, lying, one-world-under-Sharia theocrats, way too wise and devious for the typical Ivy League trained diplomat or solon. They will do anything to advance their cause: the implementation of a one-world Caliphate. They will, as Jesus warned; “…kill, thinking they are doing God a service.” Communists and CIA agents don’t commit suicide in expectation of an eternal reward by blowing themselves up or crashing planes full of people into office towers. Not even for George Bush!
Michele is a good target for Islamist’s, leftists and RINO’s because she is outspoken and has a bit of a “No one saw it but me” attitude which has kept her from rising in the ranks of the Republican Party. The attacks have also descended on the Tea Party – the very ones who got the last Congress elected.
Typically establishment Republicans denigrate Tea Party input because they can pretty much count on their votes anyway. They forget the Tea Party is an effective counter to voter fraud and riots in the streets, standard tactics of the left that could well lead to martial law and suspension of the Constitution to sew up the Administration’s totalitarian goals. It’s not Tea Party votes, but getting more informed voters to the polls that might just save our nation.
Bachmann’s latest “revelation” came to light in the last 3 weeks because of the apparent rise to power in Egypt of the Muslim Brotherhood. This includes other “inconvenient” Muslim dictatorships that had the temerity to deal with Israel and indigent Christians as reasonably good neighbors. Abedin’s mother’s best
friend is the wife of the Muslim Brotherhood President-elect of Egypt! Could it be that Hillary is carrying out Obama’s agenda of eliminating those “inconvenient” Muslim dictators far more effectively than anyone could imagine? All Muslim government is dictatorial under Sharia – including State Department brokered new constitutions for Iraq and Afghanistan!
Bachmann’s expose’ pretty much parallels a talk I heard in June by John Guandolo, a former member of the FBI’s counter-terrorism unit with a long list of military and security service. Through his experience and knowledge he enlightened us on facts and issues regarding the Muslim Brotherhood in America. We must learn how to deal with it and properly confront the threat and dangers we face. Guandolo documented the activities of the Muslim Brotherhood, their front organizations, including CAIR and the politically correct attitudes that support “letting it pass” and/or denial that there is a problem to be addressed. The “MusBro” influence is so strong in DC that police, military, CIA and FBI training manuals and programs dealing with the subject have been expunged or cancelled according to Guandolo.
Remember the Islamist who blew up himself and a number of Israeli children in Bulgaria last week? He was captured at Bora Bora and spent time in Guantanamo until released by the Supreme Caliph-in-waiting as no longer a danger. Or how about the Ft. Hood massacre that should have brought swift justice? Or the 23 illegal aliens being trained at a flight school run by an illegal alien? Are these sloppy bureaucratic oversight or slick goal orientation?
From a 1950 paper attributed to Catholic Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen who had a deep love for the Muslim people:
“At the present time, the hatred of the Islamic countries toward the West has become hatred against Christianity itself. Statesmen are now taking it into account that there is a grave danger that the temporal power of Islam may return on a broad scale, and with it, the menace that it may shake off a West which has ceased to be Christian, and affirm itself as a great anti-Christian world power. Muslim writers say, “When the locust swarms darken vast countries, they bear on their wings these Arabic words, “We are God’s host, each of us has 99 eggs, and if we had 100, we should lay waste to the world and all that is in it.”
Now that we’ve enriched and armed our outspoken enemies with ridiculous energy, military and diplomatic policies, can we thank ourselves for contributing to our own demise? Thank you too, George Soros!
The recent campaign for income equality evokes memories of the famous phrase by George Santayana: “Those who do not know history are doomed to repeat the past.” An exhaustive study of Western history was completed by Will and Ariel Durant in a multi volume work entitled “The Story of Civilization” which they wrote over a forty year period. While I do not expect dear reader to plow through the eleven volume work, the Durant’s did write a 100 page observation of what they had learned during this period, calling it “The Lessons of History.” It is well worth the read.
One observation is that liberty and equality are two ends of a seesaw. You may have one or the other but not both at the same time. For to be rendered equal to others, one must forfeit liberty. This country was founded on the principle-as stated in the Declaration of Independence-that all men had the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Where is the guarantee of equality in that statement? It is not there. For while we do believe that “all men are created equal,” after that all bets are off.
Two key points from that same Declaration: We have liberty to follow our own dreams and desires; and we have been given the charge to pursue them. This in no way involves sitting on your duff, but rather getting up and working for what you want. Any other solution, like forcing citizens to surrender liberty and freedom so that their government may equitably redistribute wealth from the haves to the have-nots is socialism, pure and simple. It has not worked in the past and will never succeed in the future. Man is simply not wired that way.
Ours has been the most successful nation in history because the Founders were wise enough to recognize that fact.
I’ve written several pieces on Donald Trump. Reaction to these musings either fire up the Trumpster’s wrath or garner me their instant support. I’m accused of being an establishment lackey or I’m lauded as a Trump supporter. But nothing I’ve written is purely black or white. My takeaway from these responses is that I’m not getting my point across.
However, being nearly as stubborn as Trump, I refuse to give up. So today I’ll approach the subject in a manner that all men and most women will get. I’m going to use a sports analogy. Football. Oops, is that sexist?
Anyway, in this scenario Republican conservatives are the offense. For non-sports types that means we have the ball and to win the game we must move it across the goal line. The Red team has three wide receivers, Ted Cruz, Ben Carson, and Scott Walker. It’s their job to catch the ball and run with it. Our tight end is Donald Trump. He can both receive and block.
The Republican establishment and their crony allies are the defense, the Blue team. They had the ball and were halfway down the field when the Reds intercepted. Now they’re the defense, meaning they have to stop the Reds. They’re flush with 400 lb. line-backers and tackles with just one mission–to annihilate the Reds.
And we have our referees, each being a member of the mainstream media. It is their duty to enforce the rules.
Unfortunately, going into the game, most of the Red receivers suffer from injuries sustained in previous contests. Not enough to take them out but enough to slow them down.
Governor Walker was hit with a blitz while quarterbacking for Wisconsin. He was rushed by the powerful unions and their Democrat team mates who hit the Governor with a recall vote. But not only did Governor Walker survive the blitz, he got back on his feet and won the game. Of course the brutal attack left some scars.
Ted Cruz has been benched every time he’s made a play. Whether it was Obamacare, illegal immigration or defunding Planned
Parenthood, Walker would inevitably be clotheslined and parked on the sidelines. Again, not a game-changer but some minor damage.
Ben Carson has avoided late hits and crippling plays because they haven’t tossed him the ball yet. My guess is they avoid passing to Dr. Carson because he’s slower than the others. Of course if he ever gets the ball, the Blues will happily bury him in bodies per their playbook.
The only receiver left is Trump. Now he’s probably taken more hits than the others combined yet is unstoppable on the field. The Blue’s nailed Trump right out of the gate at the 20 yard line (immigration). You couldn’t even glimpse Trump’s helmet under the sweaty pile that covered him. But Trump threw the bodies off like they were feathers and got back in position. Then he moved the ball to the 40 but was cut down again (McCain flap). Like Superman he once again flung the players off to line up for the next play. He barreled through to midfield where he was again besieged by the Blues (debate/post-debate flap). What made this so bad were the
referees who jumped on top of the pile. This attack banged Trump up a bit but failed to take him out.
Now, ideally Trump will advance the ball to 1st and goal and hand off to his fullback to take it over the line. Realistically, he’ll probably never let go of the ball once he’s that close but I can live with that too. For a Trump Presidency is still better than a Bush, Christie, Clinton, or Sanders Administration.
Bottom line, I don’t like Trump and I don’t dislike Trump. Right now he’s the only game in town, our only hope to stop the Blue team from stealing the game yet again. For that reason, I’ll cheer him.
I’ll pray Trump can plow through the bruising linebackers and put
the Red team in position to score. If they take Trump down, our other receivers are ready to make the catch, finish the play and claim victory. If Trump goes all the way, the Red team still wins.
This is the game, folks. We either play to win or give up. The Blue team is not going to play fair. They will break or change the rules as they go because they can and the media referees won’t call a penalty.
Many say we can’t afford to leave Trump in the game, that we can’t trust him to hand the ball off to another player. That may be true but that outcome is still better than an interception, better than the other team sacking our quarterback, piling onto our runners or dancing in the end-zone.
There should be only one goal at this point in the game; to avoid a fumble and move the ball down the field. Trump’s the guy who can do just that.
“A republic madam, if you can keep it.” What did Ben Franklin mean by his famous retort at the close of the 1787 Federal Convention? Here’s a clue: Voting every two years is insufficient effort to keep a republic.
Franklin and his convention peers knew that unlike tyrannies and absolute monarchies, republics required the people’s active participation. This wasn’t a new concept; our Framers were well aware of Roman and Greek republics, all of which amended and improved their unwritten constitutions as changing times warranted. It was from their love of liberty and dread of consolidated power the Roman Republic spanned 450 years. They kept their republic.
While the Framers structured the best government they thought possible for their times, they knew their plan of 1787 must be likewise amenable to change. Article V provided for the peaceful change they envisioned for a free people. Make Ben smile.
Over the next one hundred forty plus years until the New Deal, Americans applied the Framers’ Article V gift to amend their constitution over twenty times. We refined existing national powers and expanded individual rights. We kept the republic.
Yet, with the New Deal, Washington DC increasingly assumed
powers not remotely granted by the Sovereign People. So many wholesale judicial amendments to settled constitutional clauses were made that they required the new term, “living and breathing” be used to describe the Constitution of the United States.
Why, since the New Deal, did the people relinquish their God given and Article V right to define the breadth and depth of their government and largely turn such decisions over to lawyers in black robes?
Through disuse, Americans had forgotten the second amendatory process within Article V, which provided for an end run by the people and their states around the Washington DC elites. Having never been used in modern times, Americans were not familiar with convening by state delegations. They were further informed that any attempt to keep the American Republic by the state amendatory process was dangerous, that it could easily run amok and spoil an emerging SCOTUS-designed, social justice Utopia.
Consider: 1) Should employers be required to recognize Labor Unions as per the National Labor Relations Act of 1935? 2) Should the scope of the Commerce Clause include intra-state commerce as per the Wickard v. Filburn decision of 1942? 3) Should there be a wall of separation between Church and State? 4) Is there really a 9th Amendment right to abortion? 5) May the Executive branch assume Article I legislative powers?
If so, and in order to keep our republic, these issues and so many more should have been decided along the way by the American people through Article V. Had this been done over the decades, America would not be on the verge of a police state. Article V wasn’t designed to be used solely in extreme situations such as the runaway Obama tyranny; it was and remains to this day a fundamental tool to secure liberty.
Reverse the tyranny. Keep the American Republic. Article V NOW!
