Snakes In The Grass

When I moved out to the desert from the midwest, I knew nothing about the politics out here. In fact, though I did several talk shows, some politically based, and talked frequently with all sorts of politicians on both sides of the aisle, from governors to senators and beyond, I never would have called any of them “friend”.

I met a couple of people out here that were our State Representatives (Arizona has districts, and each district has two representatives and one State Senator). They were both really nice people, and I got to be friends with both of them. Eventually, they both ended up in the State Senate, and then when our Congressman, Trent Franks got into some trouble regarding sexual harassment, one of the two, Debbie Lesko, got elected to Congress.

You may have seen Debbie from time to time if you watch news channels. She was chosen to be one of eight Representatives that were on Donald Trump’s impeachment defense team, and she sits on the House Rules, Homeland Security, and Judiciary committees, which put her front and center of the impeachment trial.

I had the chance to attend a meeting that Debbie was at this week. We got to talking afterwards, and I asked her how it was to work with Jerry Nadler. Let me be polite here, and not put her on the spot. She didn’t have many kind words for Nadler, Adam Schiff, or Nancy Pelosi. I call them “snakes in the grass”, but while she didn’t actually call them names, she was probably heading in that direction. Certainly she’d agree with me.

I found it funny that here was this woman that has been very highly thought of in Arizona for years, getting a chance to climb the mountain and go to Congress. She’s served admirably by the way, and deserves to be reelected this November. She said it’s an entirely different ballgame in Washington, and that the Democrats there are all so power hungry, that they will lie cheat, and steal to get what they want. Well, that’s really not the way it is out here in the desert. I did get quite an earful from Congresswoman Lesko. And it seems that whatever I’ve been saying about Democrats here on this blog and on my videos probably don’t go far enough to actually capture their true essence.

So, as we get closer to election day, we all need to heed Debbie’s words when she addressed the meeting. We are at a crossroads in this country. We can go socialist, or we can stay a democratic-republic. It’s up to you, and it’s up to me. If we sit home this November, or elect the wrong people, the future of our country will be terribly altered, and not for the good. You’ve seen some things that people like Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Pete Buttigieg, and Michael Bloomberg have been saying. Multiply that by a thousand if the Democrats retain the House of Representatives and overtake the United States Senate.

Understand very clearly what’s at stake, and why we need to fight fire with fire. It’s our future, not theirs.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. We conservatives, ALL MUST vote. We need to overwhelm and bury the Socialist Democrats come this next election. We are no longer in the situation where, if you don’t like your elected officials or the way the government is running, you can simply vote them out of office in the next election and everything will be fine again. NO…this election is for the very salvation of our Democratic Republic and if we lose the next election and allow the Socialist Democrats to win, we will be on an accelerated course of destruction with only one way back.

    Many others have said it, “You can vote your way into Socialism but you have to shoot your way back out.”

    For GOD and Country

  2. This is why it is so critical that justice be served on those who have weaponized the intelligence & justice department for political purpose. Pelosi, Schiff, Nadler & all the rest need to be punished otherwise the corruptness will prevail & the American Public will lose all confidence in our government, which will lead to anarchy.

    1. Unfortunately, we’ve set up our country where politicians can’t be held liable for stuff that they do while they’re in office (other than kicking them out of office…or if they’ve accepted a bribe). The mere fact that these people push government over a cliff, or lie or cheat isn’t necessarily a “crime”. And since they define what a crime is, it makes it tough. And yes…people lose confidence and don’t vote, which gives them more power!
