America’s Biggest Enemy Today….America!

The political divide we have in America today is the most serious event that has reared its ugly head in my 88 years of being born a free American male. Until the uprising between Americans began, because of the war in Vietnam, America had normal instead of serious problems with race, equality and even immigration issues. Internal issues have been the major reason for every country failure that has happened in history. At this point America’s second Civil War preparations actually are underway with programmed events that seem to force the hatred and increased civil disobedience in far too many places. States and Cities are now openly ignoring Federal Laws and inciting citizens to destroy property and maim or kill each other.

America’s first internal battle with itself was the Civil War in the 1860’s. Approximately 620,000 soldiers died from combat, accident, starvation, and disease during America’s first Civil War with itself to settle the Slavery issue. Even with the war, no outside country attempted to attack America during its recovery. The saddest thing happening again is the division of families where brothers and sisters detest their fathers/mothers and even other brothers/sisters. The scariest fact is that this had not happened again in my lifetime until the mainstream media started fanning the fires to incite civil strife, assisted by Government employees leaking fake news and hoping for open warfire now.

I have grandchildren and possibly other family that have no desire to be associated or let great grandchildren even know I exist because of political beliefs. That’s “HATE”.  

I am not alone and wish to share an exchange between a friend and his son who shall remain unknown. These exchanges show how diverse politics can be. Unfortunately one can see the hope for a Trump failure and the wisdom of the father hoping to calm diverse feelings.

EXCHANGES 

Son.. Today has been quite a whirlwind day for the Trump inner circle. Two close, former allies, admitting and being convicted by a jury, of federal crimes.

Dad.. Messrs Cohen and Manafort convicted!  Do their convictions change what I think about POTUS?

I never thought Trump was a choir boy or someone who preferred sack cloth to Harris tweed.

As an “entrepreneur” and world class business person, it is unlikely that he had no skeletons in his closet.

As someone who was on the verge of building a grand hotel in Moscow, he made all sorts of connections with Russians.  And, one assumes, that he knew or should have known, that these Russian connections were most likely agents of the KGB or whatever the alphabet soup of Soviet security organizations that are included in the KGB orbit.  

His decision to run for the Presidency was a known risk, that he decided to take.

What drives a man like “The Donald”?  Ambition, ego, greed and all the rest of the flaws that a businessman would collect, in an effort to make and keep a million or a billion dollars!  What I think is that more than 60 million American voters pulled the lever for him despite his flaws and baggage. Has he made mistakes, well duh!!  

What did we expect….the perfection of political correctness?   

How many political friends or insiders did he know or have as friends, during his business career and how many appointments did he have to make to populate his government?  He had to rely upon the advice and counsel of others, almost exclusively to make hundreds of appointments, of people he didn’t know. That’s what happens when someone from outside the Washington Swamp gets elected, to try and drain some of the contaminated water, he quickly finds himself in chest deep. He appointed Jeff  Sessions as AG as a reward for prior support and loyalty; however, that was not a good decision. Sessions should now resign, before Trump is forced to fire him. The reason Sessions cited for recusing himself was inappropriate, as was the basis for his action, because there was no conflict of interest.

If he remains healthy, i’ll be amazed. The pressure on him to say and do the right things at every occasion, at every meeting, at every opportunity, must be overwhelming.  Yet, he volunteered! No one pushed him, other than his own alter-ego!! As for Manafort, specifically, his convictions were well deserved. However, the crimes were for activities well before he joined the Trump team & very late in the campaign. As for the lawyer, well, I don’t have a lot of respect for the legal profession, to start with and even less after he squealed like a trapped rat and bargained for his life.

Son.. The implications for POTUS are horrible. This is not gloating at all.

Dad.. Let me assume you’re referring to the possibility of the Republicans losing its majority’s in the Congress?  

That seems to be the driving force for every living Democrat and, the logical extension from that, is an effort to impeach him out of office. Nothing has changed in my view of what was once the concept of a “Loyal Opposition”. 

In American politic’s. The daggers have been out for him since before his inauguration; sour grapes and animus are now the face of the Democrat Party. The hatred for him is palpable in the national media that echoes throughout acountry and, prodded by biased political pundits who were so unbelievably irate that they were so wrong. Whatever happened to the concept of “keeping your mouth shut, if you can’t say anything positive!”?  I have to walk out of the room whenever whiney Chuck Schumer reads another hateful diatribe against the man. The not so loyal opposition is trying to undo an election because they can’t believe and won’t accept, that their highly flawed candidate wasn’t anointed as their ideological savior.  

Son.. I really would like to know your thoughts…..do you still see Trump in the same way?

Dad.. What way is that?  My basic opinion hasn’t changed because I started out with no illusions and knowing he was a mortal man with foibles & flaws. I knew that he would be torpedoed by holdovers from previous administrations and the increasingly corrupt FBI, CIA and DIA.  I feel sorry for those Americans who can’t accept that Trump beat a bad candidate for the highest office in the land. The nation needed someone to try and undue some of the damage that BHO had done to the country and to our standing in the world. Obama’s actions to disarm our military, suck up to Socialist/Communist regimes and apologize for being  the greatest nation in a hard and cruel world, were just some of what Trump promised to undo. Hear, Hear!!

Son.. Are his indiscretions and those close to him, i.e., Cohen, his long-time fixer, important to you?    

Dad.. Not really!!  I have concern that the Democrats will now intensify their opposition to Trump’s SCOTUS nominee, Justice Kavanaugh.

The collective naiveté expressed by the fawning press, is as disgusting as usual.  I am usually not inclined to justify bad behavior by citing similar behavior by others. Just as other people have been toppled from their lofty perches, those less powerful, less successful, enjoy chipping away at the top dog; it’s an example of what the Aussies call the “Tall Poppy” syndrome”. In other words, they enjoy cutting the big dog down to size; it’s fast becoming our national pastime.

Son.. You have been very quiet lately, since the clearance issue has come up. Thoughts?  

Dad.. Yes, a few! I appreciate you asking. Believe it or not, I have a few other interests beyond national politics. Here at “God’s Waiting Room”, we have lost several good friends lately and I have been attending memorials, as well as getting ready to teach my Refresher Course in Contract Bridge.

Closing Comments

One of the reasons we have so many differences we have slowly removed many ways we used in the past to make sure the next generation had a historical education of the past. Just in my lifetime we have slowly phased out the older phases of American history and today we have few historians left and have nearly phased out both American as well any State history. This was not accidental, it was planned, programed over 100 years ago by President Teddy Roosevelt and has been perpetuated, paid for and performed by the Progressives who have never worried openly about how long it would take to Socialize America. For the first time in my life Socialism is supported by 30% of American voters.

The only American alive today with the Gonads to stop the race to socialize America is Trump. The Progressives know this and fear him more than Putin or any other world leader. They know if he can be eliminated America can be neutralized without ever firing a shot. Watching this self-destruction in action is painful.

A MESSAGE TO ALL REAL AMERICANS!

 

A MESSAGE TO ALL REAL AMERICANS!

I just received this magnificent article from my great friend, Jack Peck. I chose to publish the best, most honest and extremely well written article I have read in a long time, including my own work. I will warn you that this article contains some rather unusual language that might be offensive to a prude. Having volunteered and joined the US Navy at age seventeen for nearly five years the language in this article are rather mild by comparison. Folks, this article puts the rubber to the roads with facts and scary details that have been in existence far too long.

I encourage you to share this with every real American who must learn how to stop the Progressive ruin of what is now the Did-United States of America. If you are happy with the way our country has been heading may God save your soul. It is Trump or Socialism. I pray that enough of those asleep will wake up and help Trump drain the Washington swamp, starting with getting the Senate’s attention or firing up the voters to defeating every sitting Democrat and every Republican in name only thrown out ASAP.  Let me know if you enjoy this article? Please.     C Brewer  8-11-17

By Evan Sayet:

My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum.  They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”  Here’s my answer:

We Right-thinking people have tried dignity.  There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.  We tried statesmanship.  Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?  We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?  And the results were always the same.

This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.

I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party.  I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks.  I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent.  Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”

The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s.  To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale.  It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today.

The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war.  While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety.

With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end.  Donald Trump is America’s first wartime president in the Culture War.

During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors.  Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming.  Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today.  Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man.  He fights.”

General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch.  In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank.  But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum, then Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.

Trump is fighting.  And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”  That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics.

That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis  It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.

Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do.

First, instead of going after “the fake media” – and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri – Trump isolated CNN.  He made it personal.  Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.”

Everyone gets that it’s not just CNN – in fact, in a world where Al Sharpton and Rachel Maddow, Paul Krugman and Nicholas Kristof are people of influence and whose “reporting” is in no way significantly different than CNN’s – CNN is just a piker.

Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position.  With Trump’s ability to go around them, they cannot simply stand pat.  They need to respond  This leaves them with only two choices.

They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery

The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.  It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive.

Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s, church.

Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.

This makes “going high” a non-starter for CNN.  This leaves them no other option but to ratchet up the fake news, conjuring up the next “nothing burger” and devoting 24 hours a day to hysterical rants about how it’s “worse than Nixon.”

This, obviously, is what CNN has chosen to do.  The problem is that, as they become more and more hysterical, they become more and more obvious.  Each new effort at even faker news than before and faker “outrage” only makes that much more clear to any objective observer that Trump is and always has been right about the fake news media.

And, by causing their hysteria, Trump has forced them into numerous, highly embarrassing and discrediting mistakes.  Thus, in their desperation, they have lowered their standards even further and run with articles so clearly fake that, even with the liberal (lower case “l”) libel laws protecting the media, they’ve had to wholly retract and erase their stories repeatedly.

Their flailing at Trump has even seen them cross the line into criminality, with CNN using their vast corporate fortune to hunt down a private citizen for having made fun of them in an Internet meme.  This threat to “dox” – release of personal information to encourage co-ideologists to visit violence upon him and his family — a political satirist was chilling in that it clearly wasn’t meant just for him.  If it were, there would have been no reason for CNN to have made their “deal” with him public.

Instead, CNN – playing by “Chicago Rules” – was sending a message to any and all: dissent will not be tolerated.

This heavy-handed and hysterical response to a joke on the Internet has backfired on CNN, giving rise to only more righteous ridicule.

So, to my friends on the Left – and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”?  Of course I do.  These aren’t those times.  This is war.  And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting  without opposition for the past 50 years

So, say anything you want about this president – I get it, he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times.  I don’t care.  I can’t spare this man.  He fights

WOW!

 

 

Snopes On Verge of Financial Meltdown

Snopes has been a tool of the Progressive-Liberals as I have reported for a long time. They have twisted the facts and far too many people who have challenged my words and now they can apologize, but will not.  My thanks to Peter Forrest for sharing this article with me this morning. Obviously Snopes will deny everything. The media may take Trump down but I hope the American people will rise up and smack them in their pocket boo and force Congress to enter the world of modern communication. Making McCain actually be in his throne in the Senate Chamber to vote is unbelievable ignorance. We are living in 2017 not 1817 that Congress lives in.   CB  7-27-17

By Andrew West | July 26, 2017

In the new liberal war on information, the very definition of the word “fact” has been called into question in order to create doubt among their voter base.

While Hillary Clinton was floundering in the 2016 election, spin-masters in the mainstream media, along with her campaign advisors, found themselves struggling to find a scapegoat for their “inevitable” candidate’s coming demise.  They had previously tried to attack Donald Trump on several fronts, but to no avail.  It seemed as though Hillary Clinton’s purported, and later proven, corruption was too far embedded in the character of her candidacy.

That’s when the democrats decided to try something desperate:  They would fight a war of perception.

Instead of arguing with journalists and outlets with whom they disagreed, the democrats and the mainstream media would simply decide that those outlets were “fake news”.  It was a quick and easy dismissal to use, and the concept went viral.  Soon, any and every conservative news outlet found themselves on some imaginary “list”, concocted by some low-level liberal arts professor at You Name It Community College.

In short, it was a mess.  Who, then, would validate the validity of these claims?

Enter Snopes.com, one of the earliest authorities on the internet.  As the advent of the world wide web created a need for verifying the identity of those Nigerian Princes and getting the real story behind that photo of the guy on top of the Twin Towers, Snopes became the de facto destination for separating the wheat from the chaff of internet urban legends.   As the internet grew, so did Snopes, who began branching out into real world legends shortly after.

As the war against Fake News continued to devolve into pure madness, with no authority truly able to right the ship, Facebook and Google decided that Snopes was the answer.  These two liberal leviathans of the online world would give the job to the husband and wife team behind the debunking website, and then forcefully interject the Snopes opinion in their own search results.  The obviously flawed plan is currently still in place.

But for how long?

“So-called ‘fact-checking’ website Snopes.com is reportedly on the verge of financial collapse since one if its founders has been accused of using company cash to fund his contentious divorce and to pay for fancy vacations with his new wife, a former escort and porn actress.

“The financial situation has apparently become so dire that Snopes owner David Mikkelson launched a crowd-funding website to solicit donations, according to London’s Daily Mail. Readers contributed more than $500,000 in just the first 24 hours.

“Snopes.com’s founders, former husband and wife David and Barbara Mikkelson, have been embroiled in a lengthy and bitter legal dispute in the wake of their divorce. At one point, Barbara accused the CEO of using company money for prostitutes. Barbara Mikkelson also accused her ex-husband of embezzling more than $100,000 in company funds. She urged the court to limit access to David’s bank account because she said she feared he would drain the company funds due to his wild spending habits.

“David claimed Barbara took millions from their joint accounts and bought property in Las Vegas. He has since remarried to a former escort and porn actress, Elyssa Young, who is one of the site’s staff members. Young, who was a Las Vegas escort until at least 2015, charged $500 for her services. She also starred in porn films as ‘Erin O’Bryn.’”

This, folks, is the group in charge of determining “fake news” for the liberals.

(and who will fact-check this one?!)
