Schumer’s Shutdown, The Dirty Secret.
The Schumer Shutdown was a calculated ‘game of chicken,’ two objects, amnesty for illegals vs. building a wall, objects hurtling headlong at each other to an inevitable collision. For one side to achieve success the other side must give up, move away and yield the field. Failure to do so should be like the immovable object meets the irresistible force, a smash up of incalculable violence unless, of course, one of the objects was squishy. Hummn?
The calculation has always been predictably the same, with the same outcome, Democrats win, Republicans lose. But not this time. No, this time one of the energy forces was Donald Trump, not a Republican, but definitely a leader. The Republicans haven’t enjoyed real adult supervision like this since Ronald Reagan but, they haven’t yet moved to embrace Trump.
Schumer, secure in his arrogant insouciance, called for a government shutdown and Trump didn’t respond! He all but laughed off Schemers threats, ignored alarming the public and very efficiently hung the shutdown debacle around Schemers neck, and it drug him down.
The media was shocked by Trump’s handling of the “Dreamer” negotiations. “Why, that was not how the game was to be played.” But nobody told Trump. Negotiations are supposed to be conducted between the political parties, a consensus arrived at and a bipartisan bill placed upon the President’s desk that he was expected to sign. Not this time. Trump made campaign promises and he expects to fulfill them. The non-Republican President already knew what he wanted, and he told them so. The mere political expectation for the usual order for things, heretofore designed to meet Democrat demands, amnesty for all without a wall, simply wouldn’t pass muster for President Trump. Shock, OMG!
Trump didn’t get involved in the detailed negotiations, he simply told them he would have the wall before any amnesty for illegals would even be considered. Schemer thought he could call Trump’s bluff, with the American people behind him. But Trump wasn’t bluffing. It took two days for Schumer to realize that Americans weren’t with him after all and he give up, a first!
Schumer’s dirty little secret in this game of chicken is the dangers of underestimating Donald Trump. For over the first full year of his presidency, Trump has continuously demonstrated his ability to connect with the people on all the issues the politicians ignore. Trump is absolute in trusting his instincts and he knew he would prevail because he understands the peoples gestalt far better than poll takers, precinct workers and the fake news media.
More importantly, Trump clearly doesn’t trust Republican leadership either, locked as they have been for so long in the policy of failure. We see changes here with Paul Ryan realizing where genuine conservative leadership comes from and adjusting his position in the House. Mitch McConnell is slowly coming around too. The taste of victory is sweet and delicious. The taste of failure, a first for Democrats, is like the bile rising up from an upset stomach.
What is Trump’s secret? First, he doesn’t even try to appease the NYT or Washington Post or, more especially, CNN. He doesn’t need their approval because nothing he could do, short of quitting, would ever earn their respect. Instead he attacks them as the purveyors of fake newsies and propaganda they have become and therefore he delegitimizes them as trustworthy sources of real news. The people love it and Trump knows it. We can’t afford to lose this man, he’s a fighter!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (25Jan18)
What happened? Date line, Monday 22 Jan 2018: Inexplicably, Senate minority leader Chuckie Schemer rallied the Senate Democrats to support the Government funding bill. Suddenly there was a virtual stampede of Democrat Senators to vote with Republicans to send the CR bill to Trumps desk to continue the funding the US Government into March. “Get outta the way!”
The issue of course was based firmly in the belief by the Democrats geriatric leadership that the Republicans would flinch yet again and cave in to their demands, on top of the needs of the country, that illegal intruders (they can’t be immigrants if they’re illegal) be awarded amnesty simply because their parents dragged them across a border from their miserable countries into the United States so they could make America a miserable country too.
Chuckie Schumer completely lost sight of the Constitution and the rule of law that protects a governments sovereignty. It must have been Schumer’s thinking that if Americans won’t vote for Democrats, he’ll import people who will so, he wants to load up the voter rolls with the third world’s great unwashed and sought to do so by way of challenging Trump with an illegal immigrant showdown over government funding. Oops!
When it quickly became apparent that closing down government because Democrats demand that tax payers support 800,000 undocumented illegal invaders under such innocent sounding terms as DACA and CHIP, over the lawful funding of legal Americans like military soldiers, social security recipients, and etc., then their argument quickly loses its appeal.
Where did the 800,000 number that Democrats want amnesty for, come from? That’s essentially the number of illegals, aka: “Dreamers” who signed up for Obama’s amnesty program at its beginning. The actual number is closer to four million but, we’re told to Ignore the numbers, they are simple children brought here by their illegal invader parents and they must be helped. Democrats also ignore the fact that most of those “Dreamers” are now adults and the percentage who have not assimilated into becoming American’s, learn English and find employment is jaw dropping.
For example, the renegade State of California has now announced plans to allow illegals intruders who claim sanctuary and are entitled to a California drivers license and automatic registration on the voters rolls as well. What could go wrong here? I’ll tell you what’s wrong with that. Apart from neutralizing my legitimate vote, every state in the union has drivers license reciprocity with every other state in the union, including Canada and Mexico.
If California demeans the validity of their drivers licenses by the artifact of enfranchisement of illegal invaders, then the value of that California drivers license is demand beyond its borders. Automatically, they become unreliable and any of the forty nine other states plus Canada and Mexico, do not have to recognize that license. Tickets will be issued, drivers jailed, and cars impounded, all for lack of legitimate ID’s. Californians will be unable to drive beyond the borders of their state anymore. Who are these stupid people who think up these stupid ideas and expect the rest of America to accept them too?
Schumer overplayed his hand or lost his nerve and he caved. A first! The extreme Left of the Democrat party are now in a frenzy against Schumer’s leadership. That’s all well and good.
The motto is :”If you want to make America a S__thole country, vote Democrat!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (23Jan18)
Disintegration By Their Own Hand
The more Democrats take offense at Trump’s personality quirks, the more they try to create damming issues out of his ‘tweets,’ the more they struggle against the will of the voters who put Trump in office, the deeper they descend into the quicksand of the irrelevance they’re already facing. They are a wounded party that is seriously divided, and lacking adult leadership.
For example “Dickie” Durban, sat on a Senate committee arguing with the Secretary of the DHS about what word Trump actually said about S__t hole countries, that she was present at. Well, Dickie was there too. So what? Dicky reveals mendacity at its worse but he’s really exposing the Left’s descent into oblivion. Their dysfunction is evident and destructive, to them, and they don’t see it. Their disintegration is well underway.
The three Democrat senators and the three Republican senators, supposedly presenting a compromise DACA plan to the President like he asked for, actually didn’t present any new plan at all as Trump wanted, but offered instead a rehash of the Democrats same old compromise, amnesty for DACA’s or no spending bill.
And, as always, the compromise came in with the usual suspects in the GOP agreeing to the Democrat agenda. I thought that at the last election we were through with that nonsense. In other words, the Democrats have thrown the dice and are willing to shut down the government, thinking Trump will cave just like Republicans always do, thereby securing for them the future of the Democratic voting base. “Dickie” Durban even threatened Trump with withdrawing the support of the Congressional Black Caucus. It must have shocked him (Dickie) when Trumps told him he didn’t care about the CBC, their demands or what their opinion was. Trump fends off all such attacks from the hysterical Left leaving them bereft of suitable answers except obstruction.
Mueller’s investigation opened a veritable can of worms, for the Democrats. Mueller still threatens to interview Trump, under Miranda warning presumably, to attempt to extract any level of negative admission from him that could be hung around his neck. All this, while the case against Hillary Clinton’s negligence and gross mishandling of America’s Top Secret/SCI/NOFORN communications, felonies by the way, and her grubby hand in the Uranium One business, is regaining strength. Once that ball gets rolling it will sweep up all before it. Clearly, the institutional deep state wall that was protecting the Clintons is disintegrating.
The Clinton cabal of DoJ & FBI enablers and protectors is peeling off like onion skins beneath the knife and the eye stinging burn of criminal culpability is drawing attention to the mess that Clinton made. It’s a race to see who goes down first, Trump or Hillary. Today, new FBI Director Wray seems intent on mending the Bureau’s torn ties to Congress by dismantling the Comey led ring that enameled the Clintons and the DNC to wallow in criminality without consequence. As demanded, the FBI has finally delivered subpoenaed documents to Congress concerning the decision making process that led to Comey’s decision not to prosecute Hillary, or anyone else, for recklessly compromising national security. It’s a wide net being thrown and will harvest many.
Hillary was a damaged candidate and the Left wouldn’t believe it. If they did, it was ignored and against all pundit predictions, Hillary, the key to protecting the Deep State, lost her rigged election to a real non political firebrand, exactly what Americans wanted. No more giving in to demands of socialist Political Correctness. No more free flow of illegals and their strings of family, no more national socialism. Elections do have consequence.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (18Jan18)
Exactly What is a “S___hole” Country?
I don’t really care that Trump asked why America was taking in millions of people from third world “S___hole countries,” and less people from European nations. He said Norway but he meant all of Europe. I don’t care because he said exactly what I think, indeed what many of us think. His choice of a descriptive adjective could probably have been better said but, really, it doesn’t matter because he’s right and we know it.
We are in fact overrun with third world creatures who don’t want to be American’s, they simply want to be in America, plant their culture, demand we recognize their language and, in the case of Muslims, accept their religion while they stand back daring anybody to challenge them because that would make us Americans, of Europeans origins, the real “racists” that Nancy Pelosi tells us we are.
Wasn’t Trump’s comment made in a closed door session with other legislatures, including Democrats? Shocked, they couldn’t wait until the meeting was over to rush out and tell the world that Trump’s was a ’racist’ and therefore it was necessary to return Democrats to power, because Trump doesn’t care for the little guys. The Democrats and their media cohorts, went berserk because of Trump’s alleged gaff, to reset our thinking to the socialist agenda and the new world order, a paradise without Trump or conservatives. And that’s what’s this is all about, destroying Trump and stem the damage he is doing to them.
I remind Democrats of the existing record collected over the years by audio and video tapes of politicians, both Democrats and Republicans, expressing their personal animus towards peoples who contribute nothing but drain the taxpayer coffers. It’s a program specifically designed to keep Democrats in power, filling the voter rolls with life victims sure to vote for the hand that feeds them.
Does anyone not remember Bill Clinton, referring to Presidential candidate Barack Obama, say: “in the past that guy would have been bringing us coffee?” Didn’t Marxist Senator Dick Durbin, call American soldiers just like Nazi’s, after the Iraq war ended?
The world is full of S__t hole countries. It can’t be denied. The attacked photograph is of Haiti. I’ve lived and worked in countries like these in my career. The one thing everyone of these places had in common was they were either war torn, in the process of rebuilding, or subjugated by Progressive regimes. These are people without hope so why should they even waste their energy trying to clean up the tons of cheap plastic and rubber deritius of failed economies.
Totalitarianism is the end product of Socialism. It comes when people finally realize that socialism is not providing for them as we see happening in Venezuela, Cuba, and Zimbabwe just to name three. Capitalism is the only driving force of economic prosperity left for mankind and the Democrats want none of it. Their best advocate is the demented Durbin and the loony Nancy Pelosi who reportedly said: “The people are too stupid to understand the global plan”
My first experience abroad was South Korea ten years after the Korean War. It was an armed military camp left in place by an armistice to protect South Korea and its defenders. Then, it perfectly fit Trumps description. Now I stand back in admiration as that country has become an asian economic powerhouse, even selling excellent motor cars here and around the world. The infrastructure I experienced, dirt roads, muddy ditches, trash heaps, broken military equipment not yet cleaned up from the earlier period, are all gone now.
Trump’s poor choice of words in a closed door session with Democrats should be a lesson for all. Do not include democrats in your parlays especially when they have no power. It was taken away from them so why should they expect to have influence on America’s future? Bipartisanship is an old meme, now championed for Republicans by John Kasich who desperately wants to become President. He’s telling us, in essence, that he’s willing to give in to the Democrats socialist agenda.
Trump’s decision to deny the DACA compromise presented to him by the bipartisan group of three Republicans and three Democrats, is a perfect example of how a weak president could easily fall in line with the Democrats socialist agenda, as Kasich surly would, by telling us it advances hope for mankind despite the rule of law saying otherwise. The end result is that America would soon be over run by the denizens of third world S__t holes countries, quickly turning America into one too. Trump is right!.

Fire and Fury, Don’t Look for a Pulitzer!
Fire and Fury, sounds like a book about how Trump might have devastated “Rocket-mans North Korean empire.” But alas, not to be! Rather, it comes like a flaming torch out of the dim recesses of someone’s dark mental notions, not to illuminate the darkness, but as one wielded in the hand of an arsonist determined to terrorize while burning Trumps house down. Happily, once again It turns out to be another fruitless Liberal exercise in “Hope and Change.”
In essence, the book, by Michael Wolff, was created just to spread more confusion, but not for Donald Trump or on any allegations that he is mentally unstable, but for the trash author who, rhetorically, was carrying the torch for Democrats determination to not let him keep the prize he won by the vote of the people. Trump’s very bombastic presence in the White House, is anathema to what’s left of the Progressive hopes and dreams for a Hillary presidency. Damn, I just hate it when that happens.
The author, in his lunacy, offers another try for the demented Left to ruin Donald Trump’s credibility by seeking another path for his removal, i.e.: the 25th Amendment. The weirdos in the mainstream media try their hardest, bless their hearts, to convince Americans, even after a full year of promises kept and positive actions taken, that Trump, borders on incompetence and, therefore, must be removed. Read the 25th Amendment, carefully. Nowhere in it does anybody but the President himself, unless he is DRT (dead right there), can write the necessary letter acknowledging his own incapacity to carry on and allow the Vice-President to assume the reins of power. No matter what, Hillary isn’t going to be President. So there!
Some will argue that genius often borders on dementia and Progressive thinkers, like Michael Wolff, want so badly for that to be true in the case of Donald Trump, that they will prostrate themselves on the altar of fake journalism to try to convince us peons in fly-over country that we sorely misjudged ourselves when we voted Donald Trump our President. I don’t think so!
To produce an entire book filled with gossip, rumors and half truths, supported by a cacophony of WAG’s, and pitch it as the truth shows where the real dementia lies. It’s in the mainstream media propaganda machine. When the author admits some of the data might actually be wrong, then Fast and Furious can be listed right up there with the GPS Fusion Dossier as essential reading for the masses. The only fire this book has generated so far is the slavish belief by the Inside the Beltway crowd that at last the truth has been revealed and it will bring down Donald Trump; And, the people will rejoice and be happy. Kinda like believing “If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor” & etc., isn’t it?
Fire requires three things to work: fuel, oxygen and heat. Take any one of the ingredients away and the fire will go out. Metaphorically, Trump’s handling of the administration’s immigration conference with second tier Senate and House political leaders of both parties, accomplished exactly that. He blew out the flame by opening the door of transparency, asked Democrats, for the record, to tell what it was that they wanted, made gestures of cooperation and then after nearly an hour, ushered the media, their mouths still agape in disbelief, out the door.
The Left has got to be running out of ideas to stop Trump from ruining their decades of hard work to create a multicultural and diverse America, a country of multiple languages, multiple religions, multiple cultures and chaos and confusion for all. It’s all got to stop!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em.! (10Jan18)
What has Hollywood Done Now?
Well, well, well, In yet another staged gala event awarding themselves statues and recognitions, The Golden Orbs awards ceremony, filled with Hollywood’s beautiful people dressed in black to make a visual statement about something that irks them, joined together with unbridled enthusiasm to proclaim their new messiah, Oprah Winfrey as their 2020 Presidential choice.
That won’t go well with the Democrats who still have their usual suspects, the elderly Joe Biden, Chuckie Schumer, Barry Sanders, the Indian maiden, Liz Warren, and dementia challenged Nancy Pelosi, hanging around their necks like albatrosses or hangman nooses. No, Oprah is good for preaching the Progressive line, expressing costly empathy for the poor and downtrodden, the illegals and homeless and those living in the shadows, but not as president. That simply won’t do! One presidential disaster is enough to overcome.
Admittedly, Oprah made a wonderfully stirring speech against something or other, the powerlessness of women one supposes, that could be classified right up there with Obama’s speech to the Democratic Party Convention in Chicago a few years ago. That speech, like Oprah’s, quickly brought Obama instant political recognition and then the presidency a few years later which he promptly set about “changing.” Obama was a fascist. Oprah is a products salesman.
For 2020, the elephant in the room is the sitting President, Donald Trump. He is getting things done by setting America back on it constitutional tracks, while being the constant object of left wing media derision, fake news attacks designed to undermine his administration, and personal attacks against his family, his associates and his administration. Oh, hell, attacks against anything Conservative and everything Trump.
The need to make comparisons cannot be ignored. Both Trump and Oprah are very wealthy in their own rights and that recommends them for good business sense. Trumps skills lie in recognizing where money can be made, not out of wacky ideas or from printing presses, but of seeing potential in community growth, offering people what they want and buying property to build structures that will accomplish those goals. He spreads the wealth. So does Oprah, but on a commercial scale of product identification and salesmanship. She’s very good at it.
Other skills Trump enjoys is the ability to successfully negotiate with people, to make them happy with the deal, as well as making his investors happy. That’s called Capitalism and the fall out for it is increased employment for the communities he builds in and taxes for government.
Oprah is wealthy because she knows how to sell products, save her money and spread wealth and happiness to the people she employees and the people she hocks her products to. Not too shabby, and another great example of Capitalism at work. Both are hard workers and it shows,
But Trump also saw how quickly a rogue government can steal a populations economic vitality by ignoring the rules of economics (socialism) through onerous rules and regulations. He sought to correct it by running for President with the expressed purpose of making America great again. The people bought it and he is doing exactly what he promised he would do, like Jesus kicking the money changers out of the temple. 2020 is three years away. Can Hollywood really sell us Oprah? Can she do what Trump has done? That remains to be seen, but don’t bet on it.

Recusal, What the Hell Is It, and Why?
The DoJ is reviving the Clinton email investigation. Just what that mean for true justice is unclear. The FBI already investigated the Clinton email case and excused her for being naughty. What’s next? My beef is that Jeff Sessions recused himself for some inane reason I have yet to fathom, lest it be that early into the Trump administration, still uneasy on their feet and fearing what the Democrats would do to retaliate against Republicans at a later time, it was a small gesture of appeasement. Whatever it’s justification to the AG, it really irked the boss.
In hindsight, we see now that not only was it unnecessary, but it created its own set of problems that will occupy the media and Democrat fundraising efforts for years. Democrats may be down, even near extinction, but they’re not out… yet. Until Donald Trump, Republicans were afraid of offending Democrats. The “Never Trump” crowd still are and that includes long time Republican politicians like Jeff Sessions. I’m not saying he’s bad, he just needs to be reeducated in the art of political judo and realize his strengths, and then, go get ‘em!
Nobody complained aloud when Obama’s AG, Eric Holder started deadly gun running operations to Mexican drug gangs, or launched schemes to take over city police departments under the “Hands up, Don’t Shoot,” meme. Nobody screamed about his failure to inquire why Hillary sold American uranium to the Russians and received in return, vast donations to the Clinton Foundation. If they did, the leftist media didn’t report on it.
Neither did anyone demand to know why Loretta Lynch met secretly with Bill Clinton on a Arizona airport tarmac just before the election of Donald Trump, or why she allow James Comey to do her job of excusing Hillary. Was there a conspiracy to prevent Trump from becoming President? Of course there was! You have to be an idiot to not see that.
But now, we’ get to the really consequential stuff like threatening America’s national interests and compromising the nations security by her ‘unintentional’ mishandling of American secrets and systems. Despite what former FBI director James Comey opined about Hillary’s lack of ‘intent’ to harm America, the fact remains she did and any ‘lack of intent’ is of no consequence to the rule of law or the pursuit of justice. This tawdry Mueller affaire, is a cobbled together fallout attempt to cover up Hillary’s crimes and place them on Trump’s shoulders. It’s working in reverse.
The question now is how will Jeff Sessions undo the damage Holder, Lynch and Comey may have done to American justice? For Hillary, there was no Grand Jury empaneled to hear evidence, Comey decided that by himself; therefore, there was no indictment, and no trial, so any issue of double jeopardy does not apply. Hillary staffers, Huma Abedin, Donna Brazile and others, can now be considered co conspirators and interrogation under Miranda warning, and be squeezed like they squeezed General Flynn to admit to lying to the FBI. That’s all it takes.
Who is going to take responsibility for destroying the evidence of Huma’s and Donna’s laptops? That’s a crime and because an FBI person does it, makes it no less a crime. I can tell you, no agent would do such a thing without being told to do so. There will be a scapegoats. There has to be, so expect underlings like FBI Agent Strzok and lawyer Lisa Page to fill that bill. They’re young, they were in heat. and they are sure patsy’s for protecting the higher up’s.
I think President Trump has lit a fire under Republicans and the earth is starting to move. Watch the exodus of deep state employees flee for retirement or new jobs in industry.
