Sorry this is late but real life Christmas has kept me busy.

Demand Facebook has impartial fact checkers.

To date Zuckerberg has acted in a responsible way; not censoring pro-Trump content like his staff wanted to do.

So politely contact him on FB and say that while you don't mind fact checking per se every group he listed as helping FB has a liberal slant which has translated into anti-Republican bias.

For example snopes labeled the fact that Planned Parenthood sold baby parts for money as "mixed" by making the question whether or not one person admitted that they were "illegally" selling baby parts not that they were selling baby parts.

PolitiFact used very different standards for addressing nearly identical claims by Bernie and Trump; needless to say they were much nicer to Bernie.

Either he needs some conservative fact checkers or he needs to jettison the whole idea.

We're adults and we don't need someone else, especially biased elitist liberals, telling us what news is true and what news isn't.

Why isn't anyone concerned about the Democrats attempted coup?

Threatening electors in order to get them to change their votes is nothing short of an attempted coup.

But apparently coups are ok if they're done by liberals.  I guess that's why they like Castro and hate Franco even though Franco was a far better ruler than Castro.

Best news ever American fascists are without hope!

Michelle Obama has declared that since Hillary didn't win America is without hope.

Given that polls shows the opposite we can be fairly certain that what Ms. Obama meant was that fascists such as herself who never felt good about America until Barrack was nominated for President are unhappy.

Why are the fascists unhappy? There are a number of reasons but here are a few:

1) Their attempt to rig the election by having the dead, in Chicago and Detroit, and illegals, in California, vote didn't work.

2) The next Supreme Court Justice will be someone who believes in the rule of law not the imperial judiciary.

3) The new Attorney General will not be a Chicago school politician who believes that power is to be used to help your friends and persecute your enemies.

4) The IRS will no longer be silencing voices the fascists don't like to hear.

5) The bi-coastal elites, the core of the modern fascist movement, won't be running the country.

6) Planned Parenthood won't be getting nearly a half a billion dollars to pursue their goal of eliminating minorities in what Jesse Jackson called genocide.

The list goes on but the most important reason is that because the modern fascists can't really justify any of their positions based on how the actually benefit anyone other than themselves it's critical that they be able to think that they are right because they are on the side of history.  Otherwise they'll be having a hard time sleeping in their 1000 ply sheets at night.

Hillary the abnormal; a bit late but better than never

The media are saying that it’s ok for them to abandon their “impartiality”, as though anyone believed they ever were, because Trump is such an abnormal candidate.  That Trump is so horrible that no matter what illegalities Hillary has committed or how frail her health may be she’s better than Trump.

As a proud former member of #NeverTrunp I have no problem saying that Trump is a far more normal presidential candidate than Hillary Clinton.

Like most previous presidential candidates Trump actually likes America and Americans.  After 8 years of Obama many Americans have forgotten what it’s like to have a president who actually sticks up for his country rather than apologizing for it and attacking it.

Despite many political differences Ronald Reagan and JFK both believed in the American dream and in American exceptionalism; which results from a true diversity that liberals hate: the blending of the best from many different cultures from WASPs to Hispanics to Blacks to Italians.

Hillary views us as peons to be ruled by her and her cohorts. Trump wants to empower Americans to run their own lives not make them subservient to Hillary’s ruling class.

While Trump is following in the footsteps of JFK and Ronald Reagan Hillary is a fawning admirer of government by the politicians, for the politicians, and of the politicians.

Hillary is also the first presidential candidate to tell churches what they should or shouldn’t believe in. According to the Gospel of Hillary abortion is a sacrament.  She’s all for forcing nuns who dedicate their lives to helping the poor to pay for abortions and she’s enthused about making 5 year old girls share the washroom with 40 year old bearded men who say they think they’re really women.

While most Americans who do support abortion support it only in cases of rape, or to protect the life of the mother and then only in the first trimester Hillary supports abortion up until the instant of birth for any reason. Hillary is also quite comfortable with Planned Parenthood profiting by selling baby parts.

There are simply no candidates in the history of the US who have had such a radically anti-Christian morality agenda; even Hillary used to say when Bill was president that abortion should be safe, legal, and rare.

In terms of morality it’s Trump who actually believes in religious liberty and who opposes abortion in general and is far more in the lineage of past presidential candidates, Republican and Democrat.

It used to be that Presidential candidates agreed that politics stops at the waters edge; that foreign policy should be based on what’s good for America.

But Hillary showed she’s cool with Obama’s belief that we should not worry about the world because cutting military spending frees up dollars to buy voters and line her own pockets.

Hillary supports a deal that will allow Iran to have nuclear weapons in the near term. Can anyone imagine any presidential candidate of the past, with the exception of John Kerry, who would do that given the mad mullahs who run Iran constantly and unequivocally support terrorism and 9/11?

Trump opposes unnecessary foreign involvements, he clearly puts American interests first, and he opposes the Iran deal. Sure because Trump is Trump his position might change but Trump has never advocated overthrowing a foreign government, as Hillary did in Libya, and then simply walked away from the people who suffered as a result, as Hillary did. Historically even when America has made a mess we’ve tried to undo it; as Bush did in Iraq and Truman did in Korea.

Hence Hillary is far more abnormal than Trump in the foreign policy arena because she either believes foreign policy doesn’t matter—given her abysmal record as secretary of state this is likely-- or that America’s interests shouldn’t come first.

While there have been previous candidates who were racists, Woodrow Wilson comes to mind, the reality is that since Eisenhower American presidential candidates have opposed the invidious racism that permeated the Democrat party, especially in the South.

Yet Hillary opposes school choice for inner city Blacks, is comfortable with the fact that Black unemployment is twice white unemployment, isn’t bothered by the fact that the leading cause of death for Black Americans is abortion, and wants to bring in millions of low skill illegals to drive down the wages of the poorly educated Blacks that Democrat cities produce.

Trump’s supposed “racism” is based on his rejection of the claims of those who come here illegally and to his objection to radical Muslims who say that Sharia should be the law of the land. Trump is being called a racist for adhering to Rev. Martin Luther King Jr’s admonition to judge people by the content of their character rather than the color of their skin; welcoming a legal Mexican immigrant while rejecting an illegal Polish immigrant.  Trump is also reaching out to Blacks to see how we can fix the problems resulting from the endemic racism in the Democrat party.

Based on their positions it’s clear that there is a racist in this presidential race and it’s Hillary.

In terms of the role of the Presidency Hillary supports Obama’s view that unless a court slams him down, and in some cases even then, he can do whatever he wants.

Whether it’s the use of the IRS to target political opponents, using the FBI to sweep criminal activity under the rug, or the unlawful “legalizing” of hundreds of thousands of illegals Obama has made it clear that the Constitution is a dead letter to him. Hillary supported that when she was in his regime and she has used it to her advantage since.

Based on their track records it’s Hillary, not Trump, who believes she’s above the law and that the Constitution doesn’t matter. Sure Trump used the full power of the law to try and force a widow out of her home but when he lost he walked away.  He didn’t hire someone to steal her property. He didn’t think he could break the law with impunity the way Hillary does.

Finally much is being made of Trumps less than stellar personal life. Sadly the reality is that presidents such as LBJ and JFK were not paragons of sexual morality either.  While it’s true that there is no record of Hillary personally philandering she did viciously attack women her husband sexually harassed and/or allegedly assaulted. 

She covered for Bills escapades thereby enabling him to harass more women; and she did so for apparently personal gain. After all no one would have ever heard of Hillary without Bills presidency since, other than ensuring that a child molester got 1 year for raping a 12 year old, she’s never done anything that would get anyone’s attention.

Additionally Hillary blamed an innocent Egyptian Christian living in the US for what she knew was a preplanned terrorist assault on Benghazi that succeeded in killing the US Ambassador because Hillary had failed to take prudent security precautions.  Even a strong Cruz supporter like me would say that’s a lot worse than anything Trump said about Cruz or his family.

While philandering decreases with age thereby making Trump less of a risk there is no declining in the huge character flaws of Hillary Clinton.

In this final area while Trump might be worse in terms of his personal life Hillary is far worse in terms of attacking women who were victims of her husband. Further there is no previous example of a presidential candidate who so shamefacedly lied to the American people to cover their own political ambitions as Hillary has; in comparison the attacks on Bush by liberals about Iraq are laughable.

Bottom line there is an abnormal outside the historical limits candidate in this presidential race; Hillary.

BREXIT: The beginning of the end for the new nobility

BREXIT is the British people’s way of saying that they don’t believe that unelected, unaccountable bureaucrats in Belgium are their betters.  Just as the Brits declared that the old nobility did not have a right to rule them the Brits have now declared that the EU bureaucrats and academics also have no claim to authority over the people of England.

A core aspect of the EU idea is that intelligent academics and government bureaucrats have an obligation to decide how the hoi polloi live their lives. To, among other things, tell Brits just what sort of oven mitts they can use.

In the bad old days in Europe it was a shared truth that an Earl’s son even though he tended to drool, had an IQ of -10, and was a coward was a better leader—because of his birth—than a brave son of a coal miner with an IQ of 150.  The idea that one’s parents defined one’s quality was the basis of the old concept of nobility.

The American Revolution and the subsequent success of America led to a wave of democratization that swept much of the world.  That ended the common man’s belief in the inherent superiority of the nobility and ensured that Queen Elizabeth’s children are more often fodder for the tabloids than the source of new laws.

However there are always those in society that believe themselves to be better than the rest of us.  Just like the nobles of old they believe that they not only are capable of telling the rest of us how to live but that they have a positive responsibility to make sure society is run the “proper” way; i.e. the way they happen to like.

The new nobility defines themselves not by their birth but by their academic credentials. Certain that theory is more likely to be true than experience they claim for themselves the right to rule over everyone.

Those totalitarians find their voice in the progressive movement of which Woodrow Wilson was a key element.

Wilson felt that the unwashed masses were incapable of self-rule and needed to be herded along to the truth by their betters. Those betters just happened to be academics like Wilson himself.

Wilson rejected the core beliefs the Constitution was based on and believed that the average person should ruled, not represented, by the intellectuals in society.  He advocated a powerful administrative state that had the authority to control people’s lives but which had no accountability to the people it ruled.

Fellow Democrats like FDR and Obama have so successfully implemented Wilson’s vision of fascism that it is not considered odd by many Americans that unelected administrators, those wise men who are supposedly our betters, can tell us that we must let a 45 year old biologically male registered sex offender who claims to be a women share the bathroom with our 10 year old daughter.

Obama is, in his own eyes, the penultimate incarnation of the ideal Wilsonian administrator.  Academically wise, in the eyes of those who think lawyers are of superior intelligence, and self assured about his vision of how the rest of us are to live.  Obama has no doubt that he, like King George III, has not only the ability to rule, not represent, the average Americans who are, in Obama’s eyes, fools who cling to their guns and religion but the obligation to ensure that the people’s lives are properly run.

In that Obama is similar to some of the old Southern slave owners who rationalized their exploitation of human beings by saying that those people they enslaved were incapable of running their own lives. Paternalism is a unifying theme of the ideologies of slavery, Communism, and Progressivism.

Following in Wilson’s intellectual tradition Obama believes that the new nobility of intellectuals who attended the right schools must execute their noblesse oblige by using the full power of government to impose their vision of how every person should live, down to the most trivial of details, on their inferiors.

The modern Supreme Court is another arm of the new nobility. When judges decide what should be law, rather than what the intent of those who passed the law was, they are acting as Wilson’s wise men.  They essentially claim that their law degrees make them superior to the politicians the people have elected which justifies their overruling of the will of the people; by legalizing so called gay marriage thereby nullifying the votes of 55,000,000 Americans for example.

Like the Brits the American people have decided that the camel’s back has been broken. The average American would like to be able to simply ignore the government so they can run their own lives. But the overreach of the new nobility has grown so onerous—including telling people that they have to buy expensive low quality health insurance— most American’s are up in arms.

Donald Trump is where he is because the average American is fed up with the idea of being ruled over.  Even those who reject his boorish and childish behavior agree with his talking points that the government needs to be resubjugated to the people.

BREXIT won because the people of England had decided that the new nobility were as useless and self-centered as the old nobility; while lacking the old nobilities charming willingness to die for their country.

Trump won the nomination because Boehner, McConnell, and Ryan bowed down to the administrative state, to Obama’s lawlessness and allowed Obama to rule rather than represent.

The ideal that every man is of value and that he is governed by his consent not by the innate superiority of others is a lasting legacy of the American Revolution.

Having tasted freedom few are willing to return to serfdom.  The progressives attempt to slowly heat up the pot to keep the people from jumping out was working but first the Brits and now we Americans have realized that we’re in hot water and at risk of becoming what our forefathers fought to free us from; slaves ruled by a nobility that is motivated by self interest not altruism.

The people, here and in England, want to take a wrecking ball to the administrative edifice that Obama and his ilk have constructed to deprive us of our God given freedom.

BREXIT is the first sign of the people declaring that they are in charge. We can only hope and pray that America will follow suit.

Liberals are enabling men to prey on women

Liberals don't live in reality

Liberals live in a place that is orthogonal to reality in which:

A biological man can will himself into being a woman.

Unborn human beings aren't human beings.

Gorilla's are more valuable than children.

Blacks killing blacks by the thousands is ok but a police officer shooting a black criminal in self defense is an abomination.

Religion is bad but communism is good.

A country can tax and spend itself into prosperity.

Government bureaucrats are wiser than citizens.

Socialism works.

Freedom of speech means that ideas that liberals don't like should be banned.

Sexual harassment is ok so long as the harasser is a white male Democrat.

The Constitution means whatever liberals would like it to mean.

A Trump Rant

I have no clue why people support Trump.

Trump brags about using his money to ensure that politicians do what is good for Trump rather than what's good for the people.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump brags about cheating workers out of their pay with his 4 bankruptcies even as he lived a lavish lifestyle.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump used the full power of government to try and force a widow out of her home so he could benefit.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump says that men should be able to use women's restrooms.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump says the Republican party should embrace abortion.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump has given huge amounts of money to Democrats and praised Hillary Clinton.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump made money on his construction projects by ignoring the fact that his subcontractors were using illegals.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

Trump favored amnesty for illegals in the past.

Yet Trump supporters think he's on their side.

In the end Trump stands for one thing; Trump.  He cheated on his wives but Trump supporters somehow think he loves them more than he loved his wives.

We need to tear down the Beltway conspiracy. But we don't do that by electing a member of that conspiracy, the politician buying Trump, to the presidency.

Vote Cruz the real outsider you can trust.

Why we're worse off than the serfs were

When I was in high school I was appalled to find out that during the Middle Ages serfs had to work 3 months of each year for their feudal masters.

Today in America the average American works until April 24th to pay their taxes.

That's January, February, March, and essentially all of April; i.e. it's nearly 4 months.

So today we work 33% more for our government masters than serfs did.

Another reason that "progressive" is an oxymoron.

Only one Presidential candidate opposes men in women's restrooms: Vote Cruz!

Democrat party; racist then, racist now

It’s time to take a stand against the big lie that Democrats care about Blacks. The reality is that the Democrats of today are just as racist as the Democrats that founded the KKK.

We need to destroy this lie promulgated by the MSM and the Democrats get American’s to realize that the only Blacks modern Democrats care about are those who are firmly confined to the Democrat party’s ideological plantation.

Note that when talking about Democrats here I’m not talking about people who vote Democrat but who haven’t really studied the issues but rather about Democrat politicians and activists.

We all know that the Democrat party was racist to the core until 1964 because:

  • ·      It fought for slavery in the Civil War
  • ·      It passed the Jim Crow laws
  • ·      It founded the KKK
  • ·      It opposed integration at every level

But we also know, if we listen to the MSM and Democrats, that in 1964 the Democrat party magically became a big fan of Black people.

The reality is that the modern Democrat party is every bit as racist as it has always been.

Doubt that? Then ponder these facts:

1) Inner city kids, mostly Black, do well in private schools but horribly in public schools yet Democrats staunchly prevent school choice which would force the public schools to educate Black kids. Clearly after 50+ years of Blacks being denied a decent education in cities run by Democrats, like Chicago and Detroit, it’s obvious that Democrats don’t give a darn about Blacks.

2) Black women abort at 4+ times the rate of white women. 78% of PP clinics are in minority neighborhoods. It's quite possible to say "I'm pro-choice but we have to end this racist targeting of Blacks" but we never ever hear Democrats say that. Instead we hear them say that abortion saves money because it keeps people off welfare and when a rich white Democrat says that you know they're not talking about white people.

3) Democrats praise Planned Parenthood and it's founder even though she was an avowed racist. Gereldine Ferraro, Democrat VP candidate, argued that abortion was good because it resulted in reduced welfare roles for example.

4) Democrat Senator Byrd was given a huge fawning sendoff when he died in 2010. Prior to that Democrats picked him as Senate leader and President pro tempore of the United States Senate. Apparently the fact that he was a paid recruiter for the KKK was not an impediment. Can you imagine what Democrats would say if say McConnell turned out to have been a KKK recruiter?

5)Jesse Jackson called abortion genocide against Blacks but he was forced to change his tune before the white racists who run the Democrat party would let him try and win the Democrat party presidential nomination.

6) Whenever a Black speaks against white liberal policies they are tarred by the Democrat establishment. Look at Judge Thomas for example.

7) All the illegals that Democrats are so fond of aren't taking jobs away from whites but they are taking jobs away from poor Blacks.

8) Black unemployment is running twice what white unemployment is but Democrats are telling us how wonderful the economy is.

9) Black lives don't matter to Democrats. If they did they'd be up in arms not about Ferguson but about the hundreds of Blacks who die each year in Chicago and Detroit.

The reality is that modern Democrats are every bit as racist as their predecessors but they are better about lying about it.

Trump: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

You can read my article on Trump here.

Trump, bankruptcies and looking out for #1

Companies Donald Trump was responsible for at some level declared bankruptcy 4 times.

Here’s what Trump had to say about that:

"Hundreds of companies" have filed for bankruptcy, Trump said earlier in the debate. "I used the law four times and made a tremendous thing. I'm in business. I did a very good job."

The problem is that every time a company declares bankruptcy the people the company owes money to lose money and the company owners get away with not paying their bills.

The concept of bankruptcy has value but someone who can say that cheating their creditors out of their money is doing a “very good job” has a very dangerous view of personal responsibility and one’s obligation to one’s neighbor.

It’s one thing for a small family business struggling in the Obama economy to go bankrupt but it’s quite another for a man who is worth billions to use bankruptcy to keep from having to pay people he owes money to.

It’s even worse when that person says that they did good by cheating others out of their money.

If Trump were to say that he was very sad that circumstances beyond his control lead to the people who he owed money to not getting paid that would be one thing but  Trump does not appear to be too sad that he’s still rich but people who trusted he’d pay his bills were left high and dry.

Clearly Trump doesn’t seem to think that he needs to temper his business practices to ensure that he doesn’t cheat others out of their money due to future business mistakes; that seems to show that Trump is concerned for #1 not for the people.

Those who are planning to vote for Trump might want to think long and hard about whether they want a man who looks out for #1 first at the expense of people he’s made promises to as President.

The American people could end up being the next group Trump makes promises to that he can’t fulfill.
