Dem’s Really Don’t Care About DACA

If you need any further proof that the Democrats on Capitol Hill are playing the DACA card for political purposes only, you only have to look at the latest deal that Donald Trump proposed to them.

Trump sent to the Dem’s a proposal that would keep DACA in place until 2020 in exchange for $25 billion for his wall on the southern border. You know as well as I do that without that wall, the Dem’s aren’t going to get squat when it comes to DACA. Well, the Dem’s sent back their own proposal. They want a path to citizenship for 1.8 million DACA kinds (only 800,000 are signed up!) in exchange for the wall funding.

Talks, as one sane person may reasonably deduce, broke down at that point.

Now, you can fully understand that the Democrats want to use DACA in the upcoming House and Senate elections. They aren’t interested in a debate on this topic, they are interested in using it as a campaign issue. That’s sad. There are real lives at stake here, and quite frankly, when the Supreme Court ends up ruling on this thing before June, the result is going to be quite disturbing to Democrats. They are going to find that the deal Trump put on the table will get a lot less lenient for them because once the high court says that since Obama issued an executive order for the DACA fiasco, Trump can certainly end it any way he wants (overturning the appeals courts), there’s no reason to deal with Democrats anymore. They become non-entities.

Unfortunately, the libs in DC are wont to see that option. Oh, if they don’t get the Supreme Court decision they want, they’ll use that as a campaign issue, saying that Trump’s appointment of Neil Gorsuch is such a bad move that has ruined the high court for generations, it’s necessary to take over not only both houses of Congress, but also the White House in 2020. And that is just plain wrong.

See, the Democrats aren’t using law, or logic. They’re using emotion. You can’t rule with emotion any better than you can run a company with emotion. But it does tug on the heartstrings of the uninitiated and the uninformed. And today in this country, we have  lot of very ignorant people when it comes to politics and all things cerebral. They go for the personalities rather than what really makes fiscal and common sense. They have no sense for laws, and they have no sense for right and wrong…only for their warped version of it. That is, in and of itself quite dangerous, and that’s what allows people like a Hillary Clinton (who never would have been considered a serious candidate for president 30 years ago!), or a Nancy Pelosi, or Harry Read, or even Chuck Schumer to get elected in the first place.

In short, the Dem’s blew it when they turned down Trump’s deal. In the end, DACA will go away because Trump isn’t going to get the funding he wants for his wall. The GOP in Congress are too scared of the Dem’s in Congress, and Trump will play hardball where the GOP won’t. It’s all that simple.

The Bane Of Libralism

Do you want to know why liberals will never ultimately succeed in this country? The reason is very simple, and has been outlined by pundits such as Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity for years… they do well until they run out of “other people’s money”. Liberals do not make money, they cost money. Need proof?

The above map shows that 11 of the top 12 most expensive states to live in are run by Democrats. Now, why do you think that is?

Well, to be honest with you, it’s because of one thing. Higher taxes mean higher prices. Need more proof? The state of New Jersey is about ready to raise taxes on EVERYTHING. The reason? They are in a state of serious financial trouble. And why is that? Because Democrats typically (and there are some exceptions to this), are not fiscally responsible people. Yeah, I know. That is going to rile some of you libs out there that are screaming that when you live in a big city, it costs more money, and the eastern seaboard and the west coast cost more money to live because of the size of the cities. That’s not true.

I happen to live in the metro area of the 6th largest city in the country. My taxes are 20% of what they were when I lived in Toledo, OH’s metro area, which doesn’t crack the top 50. What’s the difference? Arizona is WAY more conservative than Toledo!

Back to New Jersey. Why do you think New Jersey of all places is a very expensive place to live? They don’t have any large cities. In fact, they don’t have one city in the top 50 in this country! They aren’t a large land area like a Texas, California, or Alaska. So, why the expensive cost of living? It’s because of governmental largess. Pure and simple, that’s the reason. The people that live there must like it that way because they keep putting the same people into office year after year. And that’s one strange thing I can’t figure out.

I can’t fathom that there are people…most liberal people…that LOVE paying high taxes. I can’t believe that there are people…again, mostly liberal people that love having a government that is over-bloated and living large on their dollar. But if they don’t love it, why do they keep electing liberals who spend money like it grows on trees? That is a question of the ages, my friends!

As I look at this, I can’t believe for the life of me that anyone would actually choose to do that, but I could be wrong. I’m sure there are people somewhere who feel it is their duty to pay more than their “fair share”. The people of New Jersey are about to find out just how much that “fair share” is going to increase…sales tax, property tax, income tax, sin taxes…they are all going up. And there isn’t any end in sight.

Second Special Counsel?

The pressure to begin a second Special Counsel to investigate the OTHER side of the Russian Collusion case is mounting. Should there be a second Special Counsel to investigate Hillary Clinton?

You’re darn tootin’ there should be!

My only question is why it’s taken this long. Why wasn’t there a Special Counsel named back when the email scandal broke? It was very obvious back then that the Department of Justice under Loretta Lynch and the FBI under James Comey couldn’t investigate themselves…hell, they were too busy meeting Bill Clinton on tarmacs in Phoenix, and having Peter Strzok write their speeches for them.

There is so much crap on Hillary Clinton, you can’t begin to tell me that nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing is going to stick. Whereas, the Democrats were able to have this Special Counsel with Robert Mueller at the helm to look into Russian Collusion with Donald Trump’s campaign, even though it’s been through…how many congressional inquiries? And they’ve produced absolutely zero evidence that the campaign colluded with anybody. THAT, we should investigate. Hillary Clinton’s email scandal, the phony Trump Dossier that she paid Christopher Steele for, the fact she drained the coffers of the DNC, all of that was fine? Give me a break. Let’s look into Benghazi. Let’s look into pay to play while she was Secretary of State. Let’s look into the Clinton Foundation.

There is so much dirt out there on the Clinton family, it’s a supreme wonder who’s really calling the shots when nothing involving them gets investigated. Hell, sitting out here in the middle of the friggin’ desert, I can do a better investigation than any of the yahoos in DC have done so far. And all I need is a computer and time. And for the record, I don’t think I need a whole lot of time either.

That is without looking into any of the mysterious deaths that have occurred. And I’m not talking about back in the Whitewater days. I’m talking since 2016. I find it amazing that people involved in the Clinton scandals are dropping like flies and no one questions any of it. Isn’t it a little suspicious when so many people are dying of drug overdoses, or car accidents, or suicides? And they all had one thing in common…they all had dirt on Bill and Hillary?

No, the time for a Second Special Counsel is here. It’s time to open it, fund it, get a good, solid conservative to run it, and then slam the hell out of this family. Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea all deserve to be in jail once and for all. And just for the record, it probably should be a facility that doesn’t have any stairs. Apparently, that’s Hillary’s bane these days.

Comey Tells Trump, “Just Wait…”

James Comey, the much maligned, much discredited former head of the FBI has come out with a warning to the president of the United States…just wait!

Apparently, Comey has a book deal in the works, and he can’t wait to tell “his side of the story”. The problem at this point in time is that everyone involved in trying to deny Donald Trump an election victory that was certainly justified and fair, is that everyone has a book deal of some sort, and everyone will be telling “their side of the story”.

In a quick word or two…it won’t matter.

First of all, no one really cares what James Comey really thinks about anything anymore. He’s a has-been. His opinion is as relevant as Barack Obama’s or Eric Holder’s. It doesn’t matter any more than yours or mine. He is no expert anymore. He is not an opinion leader anymore. He’s not a leader of any kind. He’s a discredited schlub. And, from what I’m hearing, if the GOP on Capitol Hill has their way, he could be a discredited schlub wearing orange very soon.

There are way too many things going on in DC right now that are troubling to the American people. Democrats haven’t given up trying to delegitimize the presidential election of 2016. And Republicans are getting more and more antsy about trying to re-open their own Russian involvement case, except the spin would be on Democrats and Hillary Clinton. Drain the swamp? Seems to me there’s an awful lot of swamp that needs to be drained.

Washington DC has become this cesspool of political obfuscation. Democrats are trying to do anything they can to get Trump impeached (which may happen if they take the House in November, but they won’t come anywhere near getting enough votes to kick him out of office). And while he may come away as “impeached”, see what damage it did to Bill Clinton? He wore it as a badge of courage. And the end analysis was, it didn’t matter a damn bit. The only thing Clinton got slapped with (other than a fine), was losing his law license. I don’t know many former presidents who actually go back to work practicing law when they leave 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

So who’s to blame for all of the BS going on in DC? Actually both parties are. I think the Democrats are by far the worst because they are so unglued of Hillary losing (though not as bad as she is), and wanting the Republicans “to pay for it”. Republicans are trying to get justice out of what was one nasty campaign, and according to everything we’re learning, a campaign that was equal to every negative thing we think about the Clinton’s. Hillary was slimy. She played dirty. And she did things that should land her in jail. Will it? She’s been able to skate along fine so far in life, but I’m not making bets on the future. What will make the difference is the November election. If the GOP can hold on in the Senate and House, or God help us, increase their lead in either, they will most assuredly come after the Dem’s guns ablazing! What a nice Christmas present that would be!

Just A Thought…

From time to time my mind seems to wander to really inane subjects and today is one of those days. Today, I sat and wondered how the rest of the country dealt with the recent time change to Daylight Savings Time. See, here in the desert, we don’t change time. So while everyone else has the problems of twice a year getting used to a new time, we don’t. We stay on the same time all year long. Most people think that may not present a problem. It does.

See, while you all are changing your clocks, we don’t. But it DOES effect us. I have two brothers that live in Florida, a son that lives in Texas and a daughter that lives in Missouri. And while they all change their clocks, it’s hell here when I try to call them. Say I’m going to call my brother in West Palm Beach. It’s 7pm here when I make the call. Well, during DST, it’s 10pm there, and oops! I’m waking him up!

Same thing happens the other way around. Let’s say I need to talk to my son before he heads out the door to work at 5:30am. Oops. I can’t call him at 4:30am my time because he’s already at work. I have to get up at 3:30am.

And yes, the body doesn’t react like it does for you either. Instead of the sun waking me up at 5:30am every day in June and early July when it is at it’s earliest rising time, I’m now getting up at 4:30am. And instead of staying outside, enjoying the bar-b-que or a nice cool drink on the patio (when it’s 110 degrees), until 9:30pm like you can do back east…it’s dark here at 7:30 or 8pm.

So, Daylight Savings Time DOES play a role in our lives out here. No, we don’t have to go through and actually change the clocks twice a year (which is nice). And while Hawaii and the AZ are the only two places not to change the clocks (though I understand there are areas in other parts of the country that don’t switch either), it does have an impact. Half the year I’m the same time as Las Vegas…half the time I’m the same time as Denver. Go figure!

Let It Go!

Poor Hillary Clinton. She was in India for some speaking engagement (when she wasn’t busy falling down stairs), and she basically explained that the REAL reason she lost the election…and yes…she’s STILL harping about that a year and a half after the election… is that white women were coerced somehow into voting for Donald Trump. It wasn’t her fault that she only slammed Trump, didn’t have a campaign theme, didn’t have a real reason for running, ran a terrible campaign, and didn’t visit the states that were really a lot closer than she gave it credit for. It was all white women’s fault.

Shame on you women out there!

“We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women.  And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.”


So, a year and a half after the election that was the pivotal point in her life, which has proven to be an utter failure, Hillary Clinton has decided that it was white women to are too subservient to their white male husbands to pull the lever for her. It had nothing to do with her politics. It had nothing to do with all of the baggage she brought to the campaign. It had nothing to do with the fact that she was the most scandalous presidential candidate in the history of the country, and it had nothing to do with the fact she was the worst presidential candidate in US history. It was those damn white women in the midwest (I’m talking about YOU, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Pennsylvania!) that voted for Donald Trump because their husbands, boyfriends, bosses, and sons, or whatever other male relationship she could come up with, told them to.

Well, here in the desert, my wife doesn’t really listen to whom I tell her to vote for. And we used to be from Ohio. She’s a pretty strong willed person, and I would even say independent when it comes to things like that and she never, EVER thought of voting for Hillary. It wasn’t Donald Trump she was voting for. It was Hillary Clinton she was voting against.

So, Hillary, do yourself a favor. Go seek some counseling. Go seek some physical therapy where they can teach you to walk down stairs without falling, and stop bothering us with you insane rants about how everybody was to blame for you losing the presidency except you. YOU lost the presidency because you were a terrible candidate!

And with that, I bid you all a fine day!

Why Lamb Beat Saccone

If Donald Trump beats Hillary Clinton by 20 points in a Pennsylvania House District, you would assume it’s a Republican district, right? And you would assume that when there is a special election to replace an outgoing congressman, it would probably fall to the GOP, correct? That’s not what happened. Connor Lamb, the Democrat narrowly (at least so far… Rick Saccone hasn’t conceded as of when I wrote this) defeated Saccone to win the House seat. How did he do it and what does it mean?

First of all, how did he do it? He did it by running against the establishment Democrat party. He ran saying he wasn’t in favor of Nancy Pelosi. He was shown with an AR-15 rifle, backing the NRA. He ran right of pretty much everything the Democrats hold sacred. And it worked. It worked because he ran as a conservative, not because he ran as a Democrat. He was the better conservative when it came to him versus Rick Saccone.

And therein lies the situation. Lamb’s victory doesn’t mean that this is going to be a sweep this November in the House for the liberals. It doesn’t mean that Trump has lost his edge. It means that one guy in a rather conservative area of a rather conservative state (once you get outside of Pittsburgh and certainly Philadelphia) ran a conservative campaign regardless of party labels. That is why Lamb beat Saccone. For the left-wing MSM to think and broadcast any different is an out and out lie.

Now, that leads to something that is rather interesting. If you want to see what could happen this coming November, you only need to look at Alabama and Pennsylvania. In both areas you had very close races going to the Democrats for two very different reasons. In Alabama, Roy Moore was defeated because of the hint of impropriety in the #MeToo movement. In Pennsylvania, it was something entirely different. I don’t think for a minute that in either case it was because the person running was a Republican or a Democrat. I think in Alabama, enough people doubted Roy Moore’s innocence. In Pennsylvania, people believed Lamb’s conservative roots more than they did Saccone’s. Or, to put another way…Lamb was the better candidate.

So, as we head into the spring and summer months, when some of these elections are starting to heat up, just remember what the real reason was for these two Democrat flips. I think to what’s going on here in CD-8 in Arizona. My representative, Trent Franks, resigned after being caught up in the whole #MeToo thing. We had a primary at the beginning of this month which was rather interesting. Current Senate President Pro Tem, Debbie Lesko (who happens to be a friend), defeated a field of about 12 candidates to win the GOP nomination, while on the Dem’s side, Hiral Tipirneni, who defeated one candidate. My hunch is Lesko goes to DC in April after the special election…she will be a very good Representative for CD-8 in Arizona!

So, the thing here isn’t the Democrats beating the Republicans. It’s the person. The better person, or at least the perception of the better person winning was the key. Never forget that as we get to November!
