My wonderful friend, Dorella Bond shared this letter with me. This message is far too important to just forward to my 85 friends and family who actually read my “E” mails. The sad part is these two lifetime bureaucrats will never read this letter as they are only interested in re=election and face time on CNN. Someday, likely after I am done enough real Americans will force term limits on Congress and make them listen to the people. Thanks Dorella, you made this old veterans day. Clyde Brewer

Gentlemen: I’m a 68 year old Vietnam Vet and retired 3M Executive. I am on the verge of leaving the Grand Old Party. No big deal for you huge deal for me. I have come nearly to the end of my loyalty to a party that seems to have lost its backbone.
The lack of leadership displayed by the two of you — for whatever reason you’ve decided to not support or defend the duly elected President of the United States — is beyond me.
Yes, President Trump is not the typical political bureaucrat, but he is the President of the United States. It appears from where I sit that you both have decided to lay down on the job you’ve been elected to serve. The 60 Million + people that voted this President into office made this decision based upon the absolute requirement to have someone outside the beltway to lead the nation. As distasteful as this appears to be for not only the Democrats, it appears to be equally distasteful to the GOP leadership. Your lack of action on numerous legislative issues that this country desperately needs is visible to all.
The electoral map of the U.S. is RED because President Trump > mobilized the electorate. These same voters are going to clean house again in 2018 if you don’t start acting like leaders. Former Arizona state lawmaker Kelli Ward is out in front against Senator Jeff Flake by 25 percentage points today. Can you say: “We are tired of GOP leaders in Washington D.. C.?” This is only going to increase across the U. S. for all GOP midterm candidates if they continue to demonstrate no backbone and will not support our President.
My best description of where this country is headed was voiced by David Horowitz. “Friends, this isn’t George Orwell’s “1984..” It is America, 2017.”
When I look at the current GOP, I’m struck by a comparison that I recently heard. This is a basketball example that really does reflect what the GOP appears to be today. The metaphor is the Harlem Globetrotters and the Washington Generals. The Democrats are the Globetrotters and the GOP are proud to be the Washington Generals. The Generals know going into the game that they are going to lose, but
it’s a nice gig and they get to be on the court with the big boys. The GOP and The Washington Generals don’t mind losing – they just want to be in the game! Sound familiar?
That is exactly how it appears to the loyal GOP voters out here in America right now. Why is zero legislation moving forward? We have the Presidency, we have the House, we have the Senate! What’s wrong with this picture? We are wasting valuable time here, Senator McConnell and Representative Ryan. The voters are not going to waste time in 2018. This is the last chance for the GOP before it morphs into something none of us recognizes. And, by the way, when are you going to support the laws on the books?
Sanctuary Cities, Antifa, tearing down statue’s, covering statues: the progressives are running wild and the GOP is laying down.
Remember freedom of speech? UC Berkeley? The progressives are worried about what shoes the first lady is wearing and the media is supporting it. What a wonderful world we are living in. Well there you have it. President Trump and Vice President Pence are being copied on this plea for help. Hitch up your pants and stiffen your backbones. It’s about time! I know what’s coming because I live in a state that has already gone off the cliff – CALIFORNIA. The Progressive have already won here!! I mean the Globetrotters.
I have an extensive cc list of over 1,500 people. I’m asking them to send this note to 10 of their Conservative Friends.
We the people will not sit still while this country is being abused and our values are not being represented. The Left will not take this country away from us.

My often guest writer sent me this material that made my day. If you live in the South you can be sure that this army of the most caring people on earth will show up when needed. I have spent a lot of time in every one the lower 48 United States, Hawaii and 32 different countries worldwide. I have never seen or heard of any people any place I have been that love their country and the people more than the South. I am proud to have lived every day of my 87 years in Texas. The following will never be seen on the media, including FOX, which is sad. They might show incidents but they never report how people in the South help each other all the time when needed.
This is the best description of Harvey’s aftermath I’ve read, so far. (And it will be the only true story reported)
Hundreds and hundreds of small boats pulled by countless pickups and SUVs from across the South are headed for Houston, Beaumont and Port Arthur and points East. Almost all of them driven by men. They’re using their own property, sacrificing their own time, spending their own money, and risking their own lives for one reason: to help total strangers in desperate need.
Most of them are by themselves. Most are dressed like the redneck duck hunters and bass fisherman they are. Many are veterans. Most are wearing well-used gimme-hats, t-shirts, and jeans; and there’s a preponderance of “camo”.
Most are probably gun owners, and most probably voted for Trump. These are the people the Left loves to hate; the ones Rachel Maddow mocks. The ones Bill Maher and Keith Olbermann, and so many Liberal Progressive elite’s just ‘know’ they’re so much better than.
These are The Quiet Ones.
They don’t wear masks and tear down statues. They don’t, as a rule, march and demonstrate. And most have probably never been in a Whole Foods. But they’ll spend the next several days wading in cold, dirty water; dodging alligators, water moccasins and fire ants; eating whatever meager rations are available, and sleeping wherever they can in dirty, damp clothes. Their reward is the tears and the hugs and the smiles from the terrified people they help. They’ll deliver one boatload, and then go back for more.
When disaster strikes, it’s what men do, real men, heroic men, American men, and, then they’ll knock back a few shots or a few beers with like-minded men they’ve never met before and talk about fish or ten-point bucks or the benefits of hollow-point ammo or their F-150. And, the next time they hear someone talk about “the patriarchy” or “white male privilege”, they’ll snort, turn off the TV and go to bed.
In the meantime, they’ll likely be up again before dawn. To do it again. Until the helpless are rescued. And the work’s done.They’re unlikely to be reimbursed. There won’t be medals. They won’t care. They’re not heroes, they’re just good people. And that’s what important.
Oh, BTW, there were many, many women that did just as much, worked just as hard, or maybe harder, in doing what had to be done for their neighbors and fellow American’s. What was so obvious was that the race or sex or social status of the victims or their rescuers was immaterial, the only thing that mattered was that someone needed help!
As the media would never share this I hope you will. This is not bragging it is just plain facts. Americans in the South don’t hate other Americans like the ones in the Liberal-Progressive states like California, New York and Illinois. In fact Illinois must be the hate capital of the free world. If we could export anything to improve America the fastest it would be every commentator from every national media network. There is one exception, Sean Hannity who needs to move South where he is beloved.
Thanks Ron, I will call you when the fish start biting again. Prove us wrong with facts. C Brewer
Watching a mass eruption of “HATE” in the streets of America, the country I love and so much was the most horrible event of my life. This has been building up for several years. The recent events in California, North Carolina, Michigan, South Texas and now Virginia must be stopped and now.
If this does not stop now are we will have another civil war that is totally unnecessary. The event in Virginia that has been repeated on the media all day every day because the owners of the networks are one of the biggest inciters of violence America has ever seen. The other large group that has fanned the fires with security violations are 90% of all government employees except the military.
This also includes Congress and the thousands of their bloated staffs, along with the Federal Judges. It does not stop here as all of the States on the far-left coast and a growing number of of rabid Cities like Chicago who openly ignore Federal laws and gloat about it on 99% of our far Left-Wing media. Ignoring the laws and trying to sue the Federal Government is insane.
Do you have any knowledge of or even care to know what “Martial Law” even means? To my knowledge we have not seen our government impose Martial Law but they have controlled things with this power in my lifetime. We took away all rights of Japanese Americans and and virtually imprisoned them in 1942. The media was not so far left-wing then and willfully complied with strict government rules. If a city, or state during that period in history had willfully and blatantly ignored any laws, like our idiotic Mayor of Chicago, he would have been imprisoned where he belongs now. If Trump and the Justice Department continue to allow a State or a City to disobey any law we will have another “Civil War” whether we want one or not.
Let the following definition really soak in for a few hours before you decide what you would do this very day if you were President. Then look at my Bucket List of what I would do tomorrow if I was President.
“Martial law is the imposition of direct military control of normal civilian functions of government, especially in response to a temporary emergency such as invasion or major disaster, or in an occupied territory.” Wikipedia
I would have imposed Martial Law last Sunday after the stupid but deadly event in Virginia. Immediately followed by similar lawless events destroying public property when statutes were not only destroyed but childishly celebrated
I would have imposed a 48 hour blackout of both TV, radio, newspapers and any blog that was intended to incite anyone. C-Span and Public Radio would be the only source of news while new rules were issued on what can be reported by anyone. Anyone that disobeyed these rules would be immediately incarcerated by the Military if necessary. During this period any person or persons that conducted any public display of lawlessness or rioting would be jailed and charged with treason.
Every city and State would have 72 hours to cancel their Sanctuary status. Any Governor or mayor who failed to comply would be banned for lifetime from serving any elected position. They would be imprisoned and tried for treason by a military tribunal. Each would be replaced by a military officer until a new election could elect a successor
Congress would have been called back from their month long vacation and instructed to develop new laws/rules if necessary to stop people from destroying property and protesting anything for at least one year. Congress would be required to stay in session until the President decided the rebellion was over. Any College or University that permitted demonstrations would be closed permanently
I fully understand that this would be a historical action. I also feel certain that if something severe does not happen, Civil War is destined to occur.
If these rabid demonstrators should understand they can’t change history by destroying anything. I doubt that 2% of these “animals” have any education related to our history.
For the girls and women who are being “used” like mercenaries to protest a war that happened over 150 years ago, just stop and think. It took another half century for a woman to be permitted to vote. They are obviously not aware they were second class citizens compared freed slaves. I challenge every female who is upset with conservative values to see who finally gave them the right to vote.
Congress proves every day that they are the enemy of the people. Paul Ryan. Speaker of the House, just made a statement that proves my comment. He related, President Trump needs to slow down, understand, join the political process that does not function near as fast as he desires.
Liberals let me know why I wrong
Conservatives let me know if you agree

Our government says that the only places they can cut expenses is Police and Fire…YEAH RIGHT!
It doesn’t matter whether you are a Democrat, a Republican or Independent. This list is shocking. Over the years, politicians have created this enormous pork barrel of agencies that employ over 350,000 people directly and countless more via contracts with the State. All of these people get salaries, medical coverage and pensions and almost all are unionized. Take a good, close look.
Unbelievable? No. Believe it! ANON
How can anyone add to this biggest “Pork Barrel” reason some call California the land of “Fruits and Nuts” CB
I will be the first to admit that I would love to see America “United” again before I croak. In my life I watched as a boy when the people banded together and unbelievably won WWII only because we were united. I served in the US Navy during the Korean war when again the people were united. I watched America live through a great depression when again too many people were dirt poor but few gave up. Then unfortunately LBJ assumed the Presidency when John Kennedy was assassinated less than 15 miles where I was working that infamous day in Dallas. This was the beginning of the downhill slide in the 1960’s when American cowards surfaced and started the revolutionary mission to destroy the United States of America. A war in Vietnam was fought to help the politicians and bankers gain more control over the people. We paid with some 60,000 young American lives and ended up with eight years of the Clinton’s and eight more with the Obama’s.
Along came Reagan and some sanity surfaced and America again gained stature worldwide. The people again united to strengthen our Republic and we had a few years of prosperity and peace with Reagan, our last great leader until January 20, 2017. We still have wars in three Muslim countries that have killed a few more thousand young Americans to help the politicians and bankers. We can stay and fight in Afghanistan, Syria and Iraq for a thousand years and it will never help the United States, Europe or anyone. Anyone, and I have, who spends time in the sandy expanse called the Middle East can see in a heartbeat that these people will never become westernized or Christians. Hell will freeze over before anyone will change there folks. Ask the Russians who were happy to see us bog down like they did in Afghanistan.
Then the people voted to hope that Donald Trump could force Congress, the Supreme Court and the bloated Federal Government to again follow our Constitution and create jobs for Americans. For the last several years the Washington hierarchy has decided that our Federal laws only apply to selective citizens and politicians. Even Presidents, especially Obama who even issued orders to ignore certain laws while our Judicial Branch sat on their Royal Robed butts and did nothing. Even worse Congress watched the laws they enacted ignored and decided to do nothing.
The Republicans won the whole taco, the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives. The only problem is they are about as organized as one-legged man at an ass kicking contest. At first they appeared ready to kick ass and take names. Unfortunately they discovered that they are leaderless. Paul Ryan is trying hard to help Trump get things done that he promised the folks. With the exception of a few dissidents the House is boldly moving forward. They have listened to the people who want action not stagnation. The folks want jobs. Ryan is leading the conservatives on a path back to common sense. Unless their wheels fall off the House, backed by the President are on the “GO”
The Senate, never a group to understand anything the past several years, is actually a body of pompous, arrogant and for most part useless debaters who could not even agree what day it is unless someone bombed an American city again. They are equally divided into three segments. The Republicans are divided into some “Go’s, and some Whoa’s and the Democrats who have become 100% “no’s and continue to make the GOP look as stupid as they have become. God almighty could not get these Republicans to sing from one song book unless they were voting to increase their own salaries or retirement benefits. The RINO’s (Republicans in Name Only) are getting braver each day and I hope Trump helps every one of these dissidents defeated in their next election cycle. The two main screamers, McCain and Graham should be honest and join the Demoncrats who they best support. Others are getting braver and need to be axed.
Hopefully Donald Trump will full fill his promise to drain the Washington swamp. I have no doubt he will change the way our government does business unless he is murdered like Justice Scalia. It would be nice if all of the Demoncrats were shipped to California, Oregon and Washington States. Then let them secede from the union This would allow the 13 million illegal aliens to be together again where they are accepted. Like an old saying about the the slaves which was “We should have picked our own cotton”, we should mow our own yards and harvest our own vegetables. C Brewer
Interesting that the LA Times printed this. Lou Dobbs reported this on CNN and it cost him his job. All the others are staying away from it. Whether you are a Democrat or Republican this “should” be of great interest!
“CALIFORNIA” – LAND OF FRUIT AND NUTS!
(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare. Over 70% of the United States ‘annual population growth (and over 90% of California, Florida, and New York) results from immigration. 29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.
Is Donald Trump the only leader who believes that this is insane? Do the American people really care anymore? Well, I do.
This is only one State…If this doesn’t open your eyes nothing will, and you wonder why Nancy Pelosi wants them to become voters!
California’s Queen Nancy is pushing hard for a new Tax on Retirement Income. Adding another tax to your retirement is another way of saying to the American people, “you’re so darn stupid that we’re going to keep doing this until we drain every cent you have saved.
Pelosi is a true California “nut case”! Her proposal is a “Windfall Tax” on all stock market profits obviously this includes all Retirement fund, 401K and Mutual Funds!
Why, to get all Americans involved in helping help the 12 Million Illegal Immigrants and other unemployed Minorities, especially those who have invaded California and vote as Democrats!
Pelosi is frightening. She quotes. “We need to work toward the goal of equalizing income”. Quote stolen from Karl Marx. She also proposes limiting the amount the rich can invest for some strange reason, unless we old retired people living off invested savings are considered rich?
When she was asked how these new tax dollars would be spent, she replied:
“We need to raise the standard of living of our poor, unemployed and minorities. For example, we have an estimated 12 million illegal immigrants in our country who need our help along with millions of unemployed minorities. Stock market windfall profits taxes could go a long way to guarantee these people the standard of living they would like to have as ‘Americans”.
Read that quote “again and again” and let it sink in. Lower your retirement; give it to others who have not worked as you did to save it.
Pelosi and all Democrats belong in the California Asylum as they are lunatics!
I would like to thank my friend, Connie E, for providing the factual statistics. If Trump is not elected and stops this madness you will be able to add Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and Florida to Insane column.
In my opinion we should just give California to Mexico and then deport all illegals for them to coddle. On second thought this would cause Queen Nancy and all of the other California Democrats to move to other States and help them create new Asylums. If they all moved to Asylums in New York State or Washington D.C. no one would even notice them, or care.
