The Claws Come Out…

Yeah…we’re looking at a good old fashioned cat fight here. Tulsi Gabbard, who apparently I didn’t do any research on, has been accused a LOT by a lot of different people of being a Russian asset. And it took Democrat has-been, Hillary Clinton in a podcast with David Plouffe (a podcast? She’s sinking to podcasts?) to bring it to the light of day.

And now, Tulsi Gabbard is fighting back. She’s starting to point out all of the people and all of the times she’s getting hammered on this accusation. She calls it a smear campaign from the “Democrat power elite”. Somehow I would disagree with her. I’m sure Hillary would love to believe she’s still powerful, but I think she’s gotten into one too many bottles of Chardonnay!

And maybe that goes to the root of the problem here. Hillary seems to be the one closer to the Russians than anyone. After all, who paid Bill Clinton $500,000 when she was Secretary of State for a half-hour speaking engagement? Who bought our country’s uranium supply (and who sold it)? Who came up with the Russian collusion scam on Donald Trump? Who paid Christopher Steele to write that phony dossier? Seems to me that Hillary has a LOT more ties to Russia than someone that probably couldn’t beat ME in an independent run for the White House!

If I were a Russian in charge of screwing up the 2020 presidential election, do you think I’d go for someone like a Jill Stein, or a Tulsi Gabbard? I would have thought the Libertarian Party candidates (Gary Johnson and Bill Weld) would have been a LOT tougher on the Republicans than a lowly Green Party run. And that turned out to be the truth! Are we really to believe that Russia is that stupid that they are going to screw up our election with someone getting 1.2% in the Real Clear Politics average of polls (putting her tenth!)? Idiotic, drunken thinking, Hillary!

First of all, Russia would choose someone with like minded thinking like Elizabeth Warren. And they’d choose someone that would actually win the damn election so they could have puppet regime like control. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if Hillary Clinton wasn’t the actual Russian asset in 2016, and she’s just using this cat fight to take the spotlight of it off of her and foist it on someone else. That seems about the way the Clintons like to run things, doesn’t it?

Look, I am enjoying this cat fight between one has-been and one never-was. In the end, it doesn’t matter because neither of them are worth a hill of beans (no pun intended). It will most likely be Donald Trump and Elizabeth Warren fighting it out a year from now. And the rest, as they say…will be a Trump second term.

Runnin’ Scared

I’ve always believed that when you see people consistently attack something it’s for one reason. They’re scared, and attacking that fear is a natural response. So…when I see the Democrats constantly and consistently attacking Donald Trump, and for stuff that it always seems to turn out that the hasn’t done, I start to wonder why. Why are they running scared?

Is it because he’s been successful as a first term neophyte president with no political experience? Is it because Hillary Clinton, this “master” politician and the smartest woman in the world was humiliated by getting beat by him (she’s still blaming other people for her loss!). Are they afraid that the Republicans are going to re-take the House of Representatives and run roughshod over them for the final four years of a Trump presidency? Or are they afraid that the gains they’ve made over the past 50 years could very easily be undone…in fact, they ARE being undone.

I think it’s all of the above.

First of all, it’s very disheartening for someone that has 40 or 50 years in their profession see someone come along and do better with no experience. That’s gotta hurt! Second, yes, Hillary was the worst presidential candidate (so far) in history, though the current crop could give her a run for her money! But I don’t think that’s really it. I think at the end of the day the Democrats would throw her under the bus in a heartbeat if they had to. She’s no further use to the party, and most of them know it. Yes…they are deathly afraid that the GOP will re-take the House in 2020. I know there have been some 30-35 Republican House members that have retired in the last year or two. I’m not concerned about that; especially if impeachment goes through and Trump is exonerated.

What I really think we’re seeing though is the liberal steps taken over the last half century, hell the last 80 years since FDR, could be wiped away. The courts are being rapidly replaced with conservative judges, and that’s always been a liberal safe haven. The socialistic policies of the past are starting to show signs of crumbling. Even the vaunted “third rail” of Social Security could become a thing of the past because of it’s overburdening cost to the working force.

And while the Dems keep pushing their agenda further and further into socialism, they sound more and more idiotic in doing so. At some point, you’re going to be looking at a candidate who is professing cradle to grave benefits. When that happens, and the cost of that is discovered, you’re going to see the public turn and run. Americans don’t like taxes. That’s the only way for socialist programs like Warren’s “Medicare For All” to survive and work. You basically give people free health care, and charge them in taxes what they’re paying in healthcare now. Except we know that everything in DC ends up costing more, and the costs would skyrocket. Don’t believe me?

Look at Obamacare! Now, I know it was destined to fail from the start. In fact, that was part of the Democrats plan. Get everyone that’s on individual healthcare over to the government, make it fail, then bring EVERYONE over and you’ve got socialized medicine!

If you don’t think Nancy Pelosi and even Adam Schiff aren’t losing sleep over this impeachment deal, you’re not thinking straight! They know that if this doesn’t work, they have no ammunition left. That’s why the closed door meetings. That’s why the twisted words and the lies from Schiff. They are in a corner and they’re in a battle for their very souls. Don’t expect them to back down. They can’t.

Why Come Out Against Trump?

When I started the original blog way back when (titled “Desert Musings”), I told my readers that I was here to do one thing…expose the truth. It could hurt the conservatives at times because I realize that no side is right 100% of the time. My personal feeling is the conservative side is more accurate than the liberal side, and I portray that, but when the right screws up, which they are prone to do, especially in Congress, I’m not against letting the world know that they’ve screwed up.

To this day, I responde to former Arizona Senator, and now Harvard lecturer, Jeff Flake’s comments on Twitter. Flake is pretty much an idiot. And if you’re paying the big bucks to send your kid to Harvard, and they are taking a class from Flake, you’re getting screwed. And yes…Jeff Flake is a Republican.
I was never a fan of John McCain. I thought he ranked as one of the top five worst candidates is US Presidential history along with Hillary Clinton (the worst), Donald Trump (second worst), Bob Dole (ranked third), Michael Dukakis (ranked fourth) and Mitt Romney, who just beat out Barry Goldwater. That’s not saying I think those five had bad political stances. That’s saying they were terrible candidates. McCain, by the way, was a traitor to this country by his vote against getting rid of Obamacare.

And the same holds true with the presidents. Look, no president is 100% right, and no president is 100% wrong. OK…maybe Carter. But other than that, the theory holds true. While Barack Obama was far from my favorite president, and I rank him at the bottom of the list of 43 predecessors, he did have a good idea called getting rid of “pre-existing conditions” in healthcare. The rest of his term was garbage.

And the same goes for Donald Trump. While I think he has pretty much proven himself to be on target when it comes to his policies, I totally disagree with him when it comes to his decision to let Turkey take over the Kurdish territories of Syria. Those Kurds have fought hard. They aren’t the best people in the world, but they aren’t terrorists either. They have shed blood along side of us to defeat and guard the ISIS prisoners. At the very least, we owe it to them to stand by them. As far as Turkey is concerned, let them rot in hell. Erdogan has lied to us and should pay for his actions.

I am conservative, make no doubt about that. What the Democrats on Capitol Hill are doing to Donald Trump is treasonous. Adam Schiff, Jerry Nadler, and Nancy Pelosi should be locked up for treason. But that doesn’t mean Trump is a choir boy. He’s no angel, and I get that. But he’s a thousand times better than Hillary Clinton would have been. We were right to elect him, and so far I don’t see any Democrat candidate that is worthy of running against him.

So, let’s be clear on one thing. I will continue to speak the truth. When Trump screws up, I will call him on it. When he does well, I will say so. And yes, when the left comes up with the occasional good idea, I’ll let you know. It’s called the truth. Only a handful of people in history have been 100% evil… and none of them are in Congress or the White House today.

Cat Fight!

There’s a whole story about cat fights in Seinfeld…the old TV sitcom. It has to do when two women are fighting each other, and the theory goes men like watching it because there’s a chance the two women will eventually kiss. Well, I don’t think that’s going to happen here. But what is becoming clear is the whole “Russian collusion” thing was foisted on the wrong party. Apparently, it was Hillary behind the whole thing. Here’s her comment:

“I’m not making any predictions, but I think they’ve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said. “She’s the favorite of the Russians.”

Gabbard responded with this gem:

Tulsi Gabbard@TulsiGabbard

Great! Thank you @HillaryClinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. From the day I announced my candidacy, there has been a …. concerted campaign to destroy my reputation. We wondered who was behind it and why. Now we know — it was always you, through your proxies and … powerful allies in the corporate media and war machine, afraid of the threat I pose.
It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.

So, THIS cat fight is on!

And here’s what I find to be very interesting about all of this…IF Hillary has such knowledge about the Russians using Tulsi as a “bot” as she calls it, and IF Hillary has such knowledge of Jill Stein being another Russian asset, as she called her, why isn’t Hillary being charged with something rather than Donald Trump? It’s apparent that Hillary knows a lot more about what’s going on in Russia that Trump or pretty much anybody else if she can accuse a presidential candidate from the left of then working as a Russian asset in order to insure Donald Trump’s reelection.

So, I have to beg the question…HOW does Hillary know all of this stuff? HOW does she come up with this? Is her Chardonnay salesman that delivers two cases of wine to her house in New York every week a Russian spy? Or is Hillary a Russian spy? Something like that has to be true.

Frankly, it’s the first time I’ve heard anything about Russian meddling to help Trump this time around. And if it’s coming from the same person that paid off folks to get a phony Trump dossier tying him to Russia the last time around, I can’t help but believe there is something there. At least, where there’s smoke, there’s fire, isn’t that what Adam Schiff says?

So, my over riding question here is, when is Schiff going to start hearings on Hillary Clinton? When is William Barr going to file charges of espionage, and treason against her? And when will the American people see justice finally done?

I’m waiting….so are you!

Harry Reid Actually Gets It!

I’ve never been a fan of Harry Reid. I thought he was a low life. He had a real slimy life before he became a politician out in Nevada, and he was a slimy politician once he got to Washington DC. He was a liar and a thief, and still is a thief to this day.

The guy lives about three hours northwest of me in a little town called Searchlight. It’s a dot on the map, and he basically owns it. Oh, he calls Las Vegas his home…but Searchlight is about an hour south of Vegas.

But when it comes to Donald Trump, Harry Reid is right on the money.

He said over the past weekend on CNN, that he thinks the Democrats would be wise not to underestimate Donald Trump. Calling him a “very, very, very smart man”, where once he thought he was an idiot, I really think that Harry Reid in his old age, understands what makes Trump tick.

First of all, Trump doesn’t just wade into arguments. He argues on his own terms. You have to wade in his waters, not the other way around, and that’s what the Democrats are doing with impeachment. You don’t think Trump enjoys all of the talk about impeachment? It’s a friggin’ campaign issue for the Republicans as much if not more-so than with the Democrats! And he knows that every single time the Democrats hold hearings, try to impeach, scream about something Trump has done wrong, only to be proven wrong, it hurts them. It hurts their credibility. And IF Donald Trump ever does do anything wrong…and let’s face it…ALL presidents do something wrong. You can’t make decisions at that level over four years, or eight years and not make huge errors, he’s going to be able to hide it under their Chicken Little screaming.

Harry Reid understands that as well.

What I find remarkable is that Harry Reid couldn’t figure out when he was Majority Leader in the Senate, why invoking the nuclear option of doing away with 60 votes for confirmation wasn’t going to lead to a Republican take over of the judicial branch of government…a branch the Democrats had held on to and built up as theirs for decades. Harry Reid was the guy that actually ruined that. Sure, he allowed Bobo Obama to pack the court…at least the lower federal courts. But it also allowed Donald Trump to do the same. Trump has appointed 282 judges to various federal benches in the past three years, and there are 154 more that are either in the works or will open up very soon. That’s over 430 federal judges that Donald Trump will be appointing in his first term, and they’ll all get approved thanks to Harry Reid!

But to get back to my original point. Donald Trump may not be a genius. He may not be America’s greatest president. But he’s a smart guy, who graduated from a pretty prestigious business school, has bright kids, and is nobody’s fool. I don’t always agree with him, but you have to give him that. And Democrats like Adam Schiff and Jerry Nadler that think they are smarter than Trump would be wise to step back and really analyze this guy!

No Vote Coming Soon

The Republicans have been clammoring for weeks that Nancy Pelosi should end this hollow charade of an “informal” impeachment inquiry and actually hold an impeachment inquiry vote in the House of Representatives if she intends on impeaching Donald Trump. They shouldn’t hold their breath.

Pelosi held a press conference yesterday to say that she would not be holding that vote in the House anytime soon, and that the investigations would continue “as usual”. So, what does that mean?

Well, first off, we have to understand what it would mean to have an impeachment inquiry vote. It would give the House committees, like the one Adam Schiff is running the opportunity to subpoena witnesses, and it would have weight behind it. Currently, if you were to get a subpoena to testify before Schiff’s committee, you could ignore it and they really couldn’t do anything to you. That’s why Donald Trump has said until there is a formal impeachment inquiry vote in the House, he isn’t going to comply with any requests. It’s also why Schiff is bringing in former, not current, employees of Trump’s to testify.

Second, Pelosi realizes that she’s got about thirty or so members that are freshmen who won in districts Donald Trump won in 2016. They’re going to have an uphill battle to hold on to their seats in most cases as it is. If she forces a vote on impeachment inquiry before the election, she puts them at even greater risk. She certainly doesn’t want to do that.

Third, Adam Schiff has no rules to follow right now. He’s the King Maker in this escapade, because an informal impeachment inquiry is just that…informal. Schiff has not allowed Republican members of his committee into meetings, or not allowed them to ask questions. They are also not allowed to subpoena witnesses to testify before the committee. If there were to be a formal impeachment inquiry vote, Republicans would have a lot more say in what happens. And, it would have to be done in public. Currently, Schiff is holding these meetings behind closed doors. They don’t have to make any of it public.

So, what’s the downside on impeachment? Well, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has stated earlier this week that if Pelosi is thinking of using anything to do with Donald Trump’s call to his Ukrainian counterpart as part of any articles of impeachment, it will be dead on arrival in the Senate…meaning that if they are looking into that phone call at all, impeachment may happen…conviction won’t.

I’ve always contended that when the Democrats threaten impeachment like they have, you let them have their way, especially when there isn’t any way in the world the Senate is going to convict. That way, they’ve shot their wad when it comes to impeachment, and they have shown the American people once and for all, the only reason they are going after Trump isn’t because he’s done anything wrong…it’s because he won the election that he should have lost.

It’s also called “Sour Grapes”.

EXTRA! Elijah Cummings DEAD At 68!

Elijah Cummings, one of the leading voices for a Donald Trump impeachment in the House, and chair of the House Oversight and Reform Committee died yesterday at 68 from an undisclosed illness.

Cummings represented Baltimore for more than two decades, and was one of the most outspoken members of the House. He died at the Gilchrist Hospice Care facility in Baltimore.

Both sides of the aisle were quick to eulogize Cummings, including Trump who said in a tweet: ” My warmest condolences to the family and many friends of Congressman Elijah Cummings. I got to see first hand the strength, passion and wisdom of this highly respected political leader. His work and voice on so many fronts will be very hard, if not impossible, to replace! “
