So Where Are The Apologies?

I think it’s time the leftist snowflakes in Congress and the mainstream media come clean. I think that since we’ve all at the very least heard about the Mueller Report ad nauseum, and that most of us that actually read this blog have read it by now, we can come to the conclusion that for the past two and a half years, the left has led us on some wild goose chase of accusations without a shred of evidence. This would be akin to me calling Barack Obama a child molester and a sex offender. I have no proof of it, but if I yell loud enough and cry long enough, someone would start to listen.

And now, it’s time for the left to apologize.

There have been no fewer than four investigations into this whole Trumped up Russian collusion story (pun intended). Every single one of them has failed to produce one single strand of evidence. Even on the most easily provable charge made by the left of Obstruction of Justice, there isn’t enough evidence to bring charges against the president. He scored a total and complete victory on this one. Let the apologies begin.

We can start with the idiot snowflakes in Congress. Maxine Waters, Adam Schiff, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Elijah Cummings, Jerry Nadler, and the host of other idiots that don’t have any common sense to know when they’ve been defeated. We are waiting to hear you say you were wrong. We are waiting to hear you apologize to the President of the United States for all of your lies, all of your allegations you made saying you had incontrovertible proof that Donald Trump had colluded with the Russians, when you knew damn well that never happened. When are you going to stand trial in the public eye for YOUR lies, for YOUR falsehoods, and YOUR assassinations of character? It’s time to come clean before your clock gets cleaned in the next election cycle…because you know it will.

It’s time now for CNN, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times, The Washington Post, and every left wing snowflake mainstream media out there to spend the next two and a half years apologizing for every lie they told, every story they made up, every editorial stating that Trump was guilty, when they knew they didn’t have diddly squat on the guy. This time, you need to grovel. This time, you editors and bosses at these media outlets need to start firing people that made these inane and vicious comments. We as a nation now deserve to see that there is no place in journalism, no place in radio, or television, or in newspapers and magazines for this nonsense. Yes, we have freedom of the press, but that doesn’t allow them to tell bogus lies and make up stories under the guise of “reporting”. And no…you don’t get to hide behind “I’m just a commentator, I’m not a journalist”. You’re a fraud. That’s what you are, and it’s time you apologize.

It’s time for Americans everywhere, of both parties to stand up and demand apologies. Because if you don’t, the next time it happens, it could very well happen to your guy or gal. And when it does, the media backing the opposition will go hog wild with accusation and phony news, all because they saw they could get away with it this time around. Lying for political purposes is wrong. Lying just to try and get someone thrown out of office because you didn’t like the fact they won is wrong. And anyone, elected or not, that stands up and says, “This isn’t over yet” needs to be called before the American public and told to either put up or shut up. I would certainly hope there would be civil lawsuits against these folks. The truth has been told. The left doesn’t like it. They need to grow up and apologize and act like normal human beings and not the neanderthals they’re acting like now!

Illegals To Remain In Detention

Finally, someone in Washington gets it. I can’t tell you how many times out here in the desert southwest, illegal aliens break into our country by crossing the border illegally, then they proceed to turn themselves in to authorities claiming that if they get deported, they’re afraid for their lives. Now, that may or may not be true, but overwhelmingly, those folks are then released pending a court hearing on their status. You know what happens then, right? They don’t show up. They’ve disappeared into a sea of 330,000,000 people and the next time a court of law sees these guys again will most likely be when they’ve done something illegal. They’ll never be back to go to a hearing on why they broke into this country illegally in the first place.

That’s all about to change.

Attorney General William Barr has issued an order that detainees who claim they fear for their lives if they get deported will have to have their bonds cancelled and be detained until their hearings. Of course, that got the ire of every liberal snowflake group up saying that these folks “constitutional rights” were being violated. The ACLU has promised to sue on those grounds. Of course, these folks don’t have “constitutional rights” since they aren’t constitutionally bound to the United States. They are illegal aliens who broke the law to get here. Barr’s legal interpretation, and I’m not an attorney, but any idiot attorney couldn’t disagree, is that if you fear for your life, fine. We will hear you. But your fellow aliens’ actions of disappearing when they have their initial plea has ruined it for the rest of you. You’ll stay detained in a holding cell until you go to your hearing.

This is actually not the best case scenario, but it’s close. The best thing that would happen to these folks at this point is that they plead their case that they’re afraid for their lives if they are deported, then they be given a date and time to reappear at the border crossing for their hearing, and be dropped off back in Mexico. Where they go, where they stay, what they eat, all of that stuff isn’t any of our business unless and until it’s determined they truly have reason to be afraid and really shouldn’t be deported because of what would happen to them. And of course, if they were smart, we’d limit the number of these immigrants to a certain number per year. When we’ve admitted that number, sorry folks, border is closed until next year. Try again!

Look, I’m not a monster when it comes to people that are in trouble. But I don’t think living in poverty necessarily means you fear for your life. Now, the folks from Venezuela, I weep for. I truly feel sorry for them. They’re leadership has abandoned them and really needs to be overthrown. And those folks need some special treatment. But let’s face it. The vast majority of these folks aren’t vetted, we can’t be sure of who they are or what they’re all about and we need to be able to verify.

Now, liberal snowflakes will argue that we are forgetting that way back in the early 20th century, we let a whole bunch of folks in from Europe who didn’t know the language, couldn’t communicate their name, were here without any money and any hope. They were looking for new lives too, but we let them in, so why not let the folks from South America in?

The reason for the difference is, if you go back to Ellis Island, there weren’t terrorists trying to kill Americans any way they could. Today, we have a bunch of people that want to get here any way they can to do us harm. Totally different situation, and needs to be handled in a totally different way.

So, I applaud William Barr, and the Trump administration for at least having the cajones to stand up to terrorism, unlike the preceding administration. At least these guys are trying. And what would really solve this whole immigration problem?

If Congress would do their job and reform immigration. It IS after all, their responsibility to write laws. Or did we forget that?

Are We Still God’s Favorite?

As over two billion Christians gather together today to celebrate one of the two most holy days on the Christian calendar, there is a pall looming over our country. Oh, it’s been going on for some time, but it’s a very disturbing trend. And while my liberal snowflake buddies may cringe at the fact that for once, I’m not necessarily blaming them, they do indeed play a part.

America is losing it’s religious way.

So, here it is on Easter Sunday, we look at the fact that US church membership has dipped to it’s lowest point in over a century. Today, only half of us who profess to be one of the world’s three main religions (and yes…I’m leaving out the far east when I say this), to the point that only 50% belong to a church, a synagogue, or a mosque. Why is that frightening? Because our country was founded, in large part, on the basis of freedom of religion.

I didn’t say freedom from religion. I said freedom of religion. That’s where I will say that my liberal brothers and I disagree. You are free to worship as you choose in this country. That doesn’t mean that the government can’t promote Christian values. It means they cannot stop you from practicing whatever religion you believe in. The Supreme Court got that one wrong a LONG time ago!

I seriously doubt there are many, if any, among you that are of the belief that America isn’t on the decline in our day and age. We have slumped because of the fact we have lost our way. We’re not the same country we were a half century ago. We’re not the same country we were a century ago. We have changed. And I would submit we’ve changed because we put less faith in God, more in mankind to solve our world’s problems, and we are less likely (probably because of putting less faith in God) of having two parent households, raising children to respect and behave rather than “be free” and “be creative” with their feelings.

What’s sad is that this started in the 1960’s. It really took hold and in the last 20 years, we’ve seen a huge decline from about 70% of us being some sort of church-goers, whether it would be Christian, Muslim, or Jew, down to the 50% today. That’s an incredible drop. What’s the reason? It may surprise you.

While I know a lot of the folks on my side of the belief spectrum will point to liberals’ influence over lifestyle and decision-making these days, I think it’s because we’ve become the Jews from the Old Testament. We’ve lost our way in the wilderness and God hasn’t turned His back on us, but He’s letting us get messed up. And just as the Jews did, time and time again, turning to Him for forgiveness and repentance, we need to do the same. We need to get back to the lifestyle that God teaches us to live. That includes spending time worshiping Him in His house. That means getting up early on Sunday morning, not for football, but to honor our Creator. Without that, we will wonder hopelessly.

This Easter, as we celebrate the Risen Christ, let us also remember that being a Christian doesn’t happen just one day a week or a couple of days a year. It happens everyday. It happens every minute of every hour. It’s a lifestyle we should be proud to live. Because if we’re not, we’re going to be doomed to losing more than just our country to a bunch of heathens.

Bernie’s Budget Buster

Earlier this week, Bernie Sanders was on Fox News from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, looking at trying to turn a Trump win with that state into a loss in 2020. But, I’m not sure that he did that well.

First of all, he didn’t (nor should he have) apologize for making $1,000,000 a year. Granted it’s not something a socialist would necessarily want you to know, but I don’t begrudge anyone from making as much money as they can. That’s called Capitalism, and it works pretty damn well. So, I give Bernie a pass on that one. Second, he’s paying between 26 and 30% on his federal taxes. I’m ok with that as well. You should pay the very least amount of tax you legally owe. Hell, even the IRS will tell you that.

Where Sanders starts falling apart is on his programs. He’s pushing stuff like free universal healthcare, and free college tuition, and the like. Well, first of all, if you’ve reached your 70’s and you still believe that anything in this world is “free”, you’ve been asleep for most of your life. Ain’t no such thing as free.

The problem with Sanders’ plan is that he has no way to pay for it. Oh, he claims he’s all for a “wealth tax”, which is what I’ve said the Democrats should be pushing all along. You tax the wealth of a person, not the income. People in Congress make at least $175,000 a year, but most of them are worth millions. So, why are you just taxing them on the smaller portion, if what you’re really trying to do is redistribute the wealth? Shouldn’t you be taxing them on the larger amount? Isn’t that REALLY the way to redistribute the wealth? It is, but that’s not the reason the left taxes.

So, what’s up with Bernie’s plans that are so outrageous? Well, to begin with, let’s take a look. The average American household earns around $74,000 a year from all sources, according to the Motley Fool.. They end up paying about $10,500 in taxes. Bernie’s plan would add about $20,000 per year to their tax bill, and that’s according to the bi-partisan and independent Committee For A Responsible Federal Budget. How well do you think America would react if they realized they were going to get a 200% increase in their taxes just to enjoy “free” healthcare?

It goes right back to the notion that there is no such thing as a free lunch. That $20,000 by the way includes the 47% of people that currently pay no income tax. How do you think those folks would react to going from getting a tax refund in most cases without having to pay anything in, to OWING $20k? Pitchforks and torches in the street comes to mind…even if you ARE going to be able to go to the doctor anytime you want without having to pay for it.

Here’s the bottom line for all of this. There won’t be a wealth tax anytime soon. There are too many rich liberals out there that would scream bloody murder and campaign against it (can you say, Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos, Michael Bloomberg and the rest?). Second, there won’t be “free universal healthcare” anytime soon. It’s far too costly, and frankly, no one…not even Bernie Sanders has figured out a way to pay for it yet. And until that gets done, it’s just the socialist liberal pipe dream it’s always been every time socialism has been tried. It never works. It never has worked, and until they get the money part of it figured out…it never will work. And socialists aren’t the type of people to figure out the money part. If you doubt me, ask Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Want To Write A Best-Seller?

It seems like a daunting task. I mean, when you come to think of sitting down at a computer, and typing out a book, much less a book that most people want to read. The average person couldn’t fathom it. Well, former Obama adviser, Valerie Jarrett (of the Roseanne Barr tweet fame) obviously could. Maybe it was the million dollar advance that was calling her name. But she wrote a tell-all book about her time in the White House (gee…has THAT ever happened before?), and appeared to show up on the vaunted New York Times Best-Seller List at #14.

But wait…as the infomercial goes…there’s more!

See, the average book published in the United States sells all of 200 copies. That’s it. And what makes it interesting is that Jarrett’s book outsold all but four books in her division on the Time’s list. So why was it #14? Because it was “sketchy sales”. Yup. Some authors will pay companies to go out and order thousands of books (in her case it was over 10,000 of the 12,000 sold), to bump up the number so it can become a “best-seller”. Rather than list it as #5, counting all of the books sold, the Times moved her down to #14.

But wait…as the infomercial continues…there’s more!

Amazon.com, which sells more books than anybody has her listed at 1,030 on their list. And Barnes & Nobel has it listed as number 1,244 on their list. Why the disparity?

Well, apparently, and at this point it’s only an accusation, the New York Times Best-Seller List is about as phony as most of the news stories their investigative team tries to write. Apparently, it’s all made up, and if you’re a liberal Democrat who wants to get on that list bad enough, the Times will find a way to help out.

Even though Amazon is run by a dyed in the wool liberal in Jeff Bezos, he apparently doesn’t play that game. Or at the very least isn’t playing it with Jarrett.

The big question here is why Jarrett would pay a company to go out and purchase 10,000 books in the first place? Is it because she feels bad that she got a million dollar advance on her book that nobody wants to read? I doubt it. Is it because she wants the title, “Best Selling Author” hanging around her neck next time she writes a book? Probably. Does she feel embarrassed that she’s written a book that can’t get anybody to spend the money on it? Most assuredly. And now, you know the dirty little secret to becoming a best selling author. It doesn’t take much…like pretty much anything else in the world, it takes money. If you’ve got the money, honey…they’ve got the title for you. Just ask.

Light The Fuse…

OK…it’s Thursday, and by the time you read this the Mueller Report may already be out. Or it soon will be. And the Democrats will be pouncing on anything that even gives the slightest hint that Donald Trump colluded with Russians (even though we know that wasn’t the findings), or that he obstructed justice (which is always a very short putt and what everyone wants to run to). Republicans on the other hand are poised to give the “See? We told you so!” reply, hitting hard the fact that this particular investigation went 22 months and cost $30 million of taxpayers money and came up short of finding anything…which was exactly what the Republicans (and Trump) said would happen.

In the end, unless there is a very major turn of events that blows up William Barr’s synopsis of his version of what the Mueller Report said, it isn’t going to change anyone’s opinion. Dyed in the wool snowflake liberals are going to come away thinking that the DOJ hid aspects of this that would most certainly have shown Trump to be a traitor and someone that should be impeached. Republicans will stick with the narrative that for the third (or is it the fourth?) time, an investigation into this crap has come away with yet, not a shred of evidence that Donald Trump has done anything untoward other than yell “Witch Hunt!” at Mueller. Well, it turns out Donald Trump was right all along.

So, unlike the last time an independent counsel’s report generated this much interest (do you remember when that was?), this time it’s going to be a yawn fest. Of course, people like Adam Schiff and Maxine Waters, and Elijah Cummings, and Nancy Pelosi, and Chuck Schumer all have face to save, so they are going to be looking for anything they can find that they can hang a shred of hope on.

Look…the deal is this. The Democrats put a ton of eggs in the Mueller basket, sure that he was going to come up with something, even manufactured, that showed Trump colluded with the Russians and they could proceed with impeachment. Unfortunately for them, they stepped in a giant pile of dog poop. And it hasn’t gotten off their shoe yet. In fact, it appears that some Dem’s that have doubled down have waded waist deep into the stuff. Now, they need to breathe deeply, smell the crap they have let out of the bag, apologize both to Donald Trump and the American people for wasting two years and $30 million of taxpayer dollars, and try to put this sordid mess behind them.

Of course, now, as I understand it, William Barr is looking into the other side of the coin and wants to know all about the Hillary Clinton/DOJ/FBI scandal of 2016 and the email server scandal that preceded it. I mean, fair IS fair after all. If you’re going to subject Donald Trump to this type of rectal exam and find nothing, the very least you can do is look into the Clinton Global Initiative, the Clinton Foundation, Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea Clinton, and see if anything untoward was done during and after her term as Secretary of State. If THAT comes out clean as it appears this investigation will, then, and only then we can move forward and leave the 2016 election in history. Until that time, this is just as much a conspiracy and crime ridden event as the JFK assassination.

Latest Trump Immigration Plan Is Genius!

When you get right down to it and think about it, if you can’t beat ’em join ’em. At least partly. Donald Trump has put a plan on the table that basically says if the courts aren’t going to let him protect the border, then he’s going to do what Democrat cities have wanted to do all along. He’s going to take those illegals pouring over the border, and he’s going to put them in cities like San Francisco, and Chicago, and LA. You know…cities that have declared themselves “sanctuary cities” and want to show their illegal brothers and sisters from the south that not all Americans are uncouth!

And it’s a great idea!

When you think about it, if you intersperse them in all of the communities in the country, they are most likely going to eventually take over at the rate they’re pouring into our country. So, if they are going to take over, why not concentrate their numbers in the cities that want them…or at least say they do. Now, of course, as the population of San Francisco let’s say, doubles, and they don’t have the housing for them, and most of them are homeless and hungry, then San Francisco is going to have to raise taxes. They are already one of the most expensive cities to live in here in the US. Same with LA. Same with Chicago. Same with NYC. And if you noticed, all of these cities are Democrat run and have been for a long time. So, by dropping these illegals onto their doorstep, you’re not really changing the outcome of anything.

Oh, it may be tougher for a Republican in California or New York, or Illinois to actually win a seat in the Senate, but my last look showed Democrats controlled those seats already!

So, we let the illegals congregate in those cities, and of course, should they decide to move to a non-sanctuary city, and they’re found out, they can be jailed, or deported. So, the likelihood is, they’ll stay in the city that originally welcomed them. Thems the breaks if you don’t want to play by the rules.

I was trying to think of a downside from a national standpoint. Other than bringing in a bunch of people who don’t belong here, it makes sense. If not, let me know in the comments below! Of course, it’s going to take some federal backbone in order to accomplish this. The federal government can’t step in and decide to help out financially when these cities become over-burdened with people who pay little in taxes, but are going to be demanding a lot in local services. And it’s going to have to basically bankrupt these cities, as it has done in European countries that opened their doors to tons of refugees in the Syrian Civil War, thinking they were doing a good thing, and then finding out what that really means in terms of unforeseen problems up the road later on.

No, I think Trump’s idea is a good one. It’s not his best one by far, but it’s a good one. And I hear they are going to have another 455 miles of border wall built in the next 12 months, which is a good thing.

Regardless of what side of the fence you sit on (pun intended), you have to agree that when you turn your country over to people that aren’t citizens, at some point you are going to lose your country. We are in the midst of the decline of America as a civilization as it is thanks to liberals, and this is going to accelerate that process exponentially!
