They’re NOT Sore Losers?

(from Free North Carolina, in part)

Trump isn’t up against “sore losers.” He’s facing an army of saboteurs bent on destroying the elected government.

Via Billy

As I predicted in my best-selling book about President Trump’s plan to save America, the Democrats and their media accomplices have declared all-out war on the Trump White House. Under the guise of “resistance” – as though the Trump was the head of an occupying army rather than an elected president – they have set out to destroy his administration. They are not “sore losers,” as many had surmised when their hysterical attacks on Trump as an American Hitler began, they are an army of saboteurs bent on destroying the government the voters preferred. Their general, Barack Obama, is an unrepentant radical who abused the office of the presidency when he was in power, and as ex-president is now leading a war to overthrow his successor.

Is this hyperbole, or fact?
What do you guys think?
AND – what do we, as citizens of a Constitutional Republic, DO about it?
(I’m convinced their vanguard is roughly 3% of the Democratic Party.  Old hippies who believed in the Weathermen, race-baiters, other radicals searching for a cause (rebels w/o a clue!), unemployed – because employed folks have to work!)
PS – I am not a Trump supporter.  I think the last election was Hobson’s Choice – an unrepentant criminal Marxist versus a Huey Long copycat with lots of money, playing to the Silent Majority.  Trump has some good ideas, but seems less educated regarding how the Constitution works!

Obama’s brother produces THE birth certificate

An Obama has joined the birther movement.
Malik Obama, Barack Obama’s half-brother, tweeted image of what appears to be Barack’s birth certificate.
Except it’s not from Hawaii, but rather Kenya.

From the Day Late Dollar Short, or the What Took You So Long Department!

Seriously – How many birth certificates ARE THERE?  And how did he get a Connecticut Social Security number?  And why are his school records sealed?

And, why would one’s half brother do such a thing?  Now?

Inquiring minds want to know!

(Just because sometimes, I like adding fuel to the fire! – Guffaw)

The Silent Majority

The silent majority is an unspecified large group of people in a country or group who do not express their opinions publicly.[1] The term was popularized by U.S. President Richard Nixon in a November 3, 1969, speech in which he said, “And so tonight—to you, the great silent majority of my fellow Americans—I ask for your support.”[2] In this usage it referred to those Americans who did not join in the large demonstrations against the Vietnam War at the time, who did not join in the counterculture, and who did not participate in public discourse. Nixon along with many others saw this group of Middle Americans as being overshadowed in the media by the more vocal minority. (Wikipedia)

I believe we have seen the Silent Majority become silent no longer.  Not by taking to the streets, blocking freeways, burning buildings and other crimes, but by simply voting.

Making a statement they have had enough of the Fabian, Marxist, Communist, Socialist, Progressive, One-World “it takes a village” crap that The United States has been spoon fed for more than a century.

By Paul Genova—You Created Us
I haven’t said too much about this election since the start, but this is how I feel.


I notice that many of you are not graciously accepting the fact that your candidate lost. In fact, you seem to be posting ever more hateful things about those of us who voted for Trump.

Some of you are apparently triggered because you are posting how sick you feel about the results.

How did this happen you may ask? It’s simple


– You created “us” when you attacked our freedom of speech.

– You created “us” when you attacked our right to bear arms.

– You created “us” when you attacked our Christian beliefs.

– You created “us” when you constantly referred to us as racists.

– You created “us” when you constantly called us xenophobic.

– You created “us” when you told us to get on board or get out of the way.

– You created “us” when you forced us to buy health care and then financially penalized us for not participating.

– You created “us” when you lied and said we could keep our insurance plans and our doctors.

– You created “us” when you allowed our jobs to continue to leave our country.

– You created “us” when you attacked our flag.

– You created “us” when you took God out of our schools.

– You created “us” when you confused women’s rights with feminism.

– You created “us” when you began to emasculate men.

– You created “us” when you decided to make our children soft.

– You created “us” when you decided to vote for progressive ideals.

– You created “us” when you attacked our way of life.

– You created “us” when you decided to let our government get out of control.

– “You” created “us” the silent majority.

– You created “us” when you began murdering innocent law enforcement officers.

– You created “us” when you took a knee, or stayed seated or didn’t remove your hat during our National Anthem.


And we became fed up and we pushed back and spoke up.


And we did it with ballots, not bullets.


With ballots, not riots.

With ballots, not looting.

With ballots, not blocking traffic.

With ballots, not fires, except the one you started inside of “us”.


“YOU” created “US”.



It really is that simple. You democrats have only yourselves to blame.

Now, I may quibble with a couple of the tenets previously expressed, but I ‘get’ the gist.  The majority of folks who are simply trying to live their lives, go to work, raise their children, love their family and friends have decided they have had enough of unnecessary governmental overreach and intrusion.  And decided to take action.

By voting.

And the Left doesn’t know how to react – because they didn’t win, as they expected.  And they are not big on introspection and correction – they just react.

As spoiled children.

 

 

NYPD Union Official Criticizes Mayor De Blasio For His Pro-Illegal Stance

(from Conservative Tribune in part)

President Donald Trump followed through on a campaign promise and within the first few days of being in office issued an executive order threatening to cut off federal funding to cities that didn’t revoke their “sanctuary city” stance.

While some cities have followed Trump’s order, many major cites, like New York City, have become defiant, vowing to never give up their “sanctuary city” status and refusing to cooperate with federal Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents seeking to deport criminal illegals.

Now, a union that represents the Big Apple’s beleaguered cops is firing back.

In a radio interview this week, Ed Mullins, president of the Sergeants Benevolent Association in New York City, blasted Mayor Bill de Blasio and Police Commissioner James O’Neill for being unwilling to work with the federal authorities, The New York Daily News reported.

“Make no mistake about it, the members of law enforcement in the NYPD want to cooperate with ICE. I speak to cops every day — they want to cooperate with ICE, they want to work with fellow law enforcement agents,” Mullins said Sunday on 970-AM’s “The Cats Roundtable,” with host John Catsimatidis.

“There is a moral obligation, and as the chief law enforcement officer of the city, you yourself have to be able to follow the direction of law. We don’t get to participate in the laws that we want,” Mullins said. “That’s total lunacy.”

Newsday reported that Mullins claimed that de Blasio was playing politics because it is an election year, and de Blasio thinks taking the pro-illegal side will help him win.

De Blasio, one of a number of leftist mayors who support (among other ridiculous things) sanctuary cities, finally has bit off more than he can chew.

Hopefully, the legal electorate is listening.

And enough of the illegal electorate will stay away from the polls!

 

Fun Fact!

Fun Fact Of The Day: Trump Received Twice As Many Muslim Votes Than Mitt Romney…

Via AOL:

Donald Trump doubled the Muslim Vote from Mitt Romney in 2012.

Despite campaign rhetoric some called, Islamophobic and calls for a complete ban on Muslim immigration to the U.S., an exit poll of 2,000 voters conducted by the Council for American Islamic Relations found that 13% of Muslim voters backed Trump.

That is double the Muslim vote that Republican Mitt Romney received in 2012. Hillary Clinton got 74% of the vote.

A spokesperson for CAIR said that while 15% of Muslims do identify as Republican.

“It might not necessarily have been as much a vote of confidence for Trump as an expression of no confidence in Clinton.”

(in part from Weasel Zippers)

Now, I’ve no idea if that last statement defines the results.

But, it could…

PS – I’d no idea AOL still existed!  😛

 

GEE…

About these “protests”…

I wonder if it’s just Soros or SEIU (famous for earlier OWS busings) or LaRaza?  Or a coordinated effort by community organizers (outside agitators) in all these groups?

I was told by a liberal friend that it didn’t happen against Obama, because folks think Trump is more dangerous (!?)  Different strokes, I guess.  I thought Obama was/is plenty dangerous…

As for me, there have been Presidents and policies with whom/which I disagreed over the past 40 years.  But, I couldn’t leave school – I’d have been suspended.  And work?  Fired.

Besides, I had and needed to keep my job!  (I’m guess this IS a job for many of these folks!)

Figures. Anti-Trump Protesters Were Bussed in to Austin #FakeProtests

Via Billy

bus-protests-3

Paid fake protesters were bused in to the anti-Trump protests in Austin, Texas.

They must have spent a lot of Soros money on this operation.

There was a whole string of buses.

Everything they do is fake or paid for.

and…
mexican-protesters
‘Students’, aka Lenin’s useful idiots.
Funny how they sport MEXICAN flags and professionally-made signs…
The Internet says the epicenter of the protest activity is OREGON! (where Austin, Berkeley, Tucson, SF et al should relocate!)
Who knew?
At least this gives folks something to do.
(BTW – I’m all for protest – it’s a fine American tradition.  Criminal damage, arson, rioting, and assault are crimes, not protest.)
(AND WHILE WE’RE ON THE SUBJECT)
There’s  ‘movement’ to force the Electoral College to change their vote to coincide with the popular vote! (I wonder if such a movement would exist if the result had been reversed?), AND, a movement to amend the Constitution to make the Presidential Election by popular vote!!
Didn’t any of these folks take Eighth Grade Civics?
For those who missed it, The United States is a REPUBLIC, NOT a democracy (aka majority/mob rule).  Please see the map below:
electoral-population-map
Do you REALLY want only the regions in blue deciding who becomes President?  THIS is why the Electoral College was created.  The Founding Fathers were smart cookies – thinking of fly-over States before the airplane was even invented!
Class dismissed.

 

What Do We Do NOW?

Continue to fight the good fight.

Republicans have The House – the purse strings

Republicans squeaked by in keeping The Senate.

This is important.

Just because Republicans have both the House AND the Senate doesn’t mean statist gun-control types are finished!

Keep checking your six, and keep your powder dry.

Oh, yeah – DONALD JOHN TRUMP IS THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.  I wish him well, but have no allusions he’s for stopping all the wars, the TSA, rendition, drone strikes on U.S. citizens, no-knock warrants, NSA surveillance of U.S. citizens, sobriety checkpoints and supports open and CCW everywhere!

Or that he can get his own party’s support to built a wall.

Not that many years ago, he was for gun control and a so-called ‘assault weapons ban’.  He claims to have changed his stripes.  People can change.  Hillary was once a Goldwater Republican.  Charlton Heston (in the distant past) supported gun control.

AND DJT remains a big government statist populist. (Although, he likes McDonald’s and drove his own car during the campaign, sometimes).  Hillary hasn’t driven her own car in 35 years?  Remember Bush marveling at supermarket scanners? Out-of-touch, much?

Regardless of party labeling, we should continue to watch ALL the Republicans (and of course the Democrats/Progressives/Socialists).

AND, the White House.

It’s not specific parties that are evil.

It’s government.

Just In Time For Your Pre-Election Festivities…

The Silicon Graybeard (not a wild-eyed conspiracy guy!) brings us (in part)

Fiat Justitia, et Pereat Mundus

Translates as “Let justice be done, though the world perish”.  Apparently it’s not really a phrase from the Roman Empire but from a book in 1563.   Wikipedia says:

This sentence was the motto of Ferdinand I, Holy Roman Emperor, probably originating from Johannes Jacobus Manlius’s book Loci Communes (1563). It characterizes an attitude, which wants to provide justice at any price. Its first documented use in English literature was about half a century later.

Hat Tip to The Arts Mechanical for this information, in a piece called Nightmare Fuel, and it really is reading that’s not for the squeamish.  He, in turn, links to a number of sources that are reporting on the truly disgusting things going on in Clinton Foundation’s universe.  First a link to True Pundit:

BREAKING BOMBSHELL: NYPD Blows Whistle on New Hillary Emails: Money Laundering, Sex Crimes with Children, Child Exploitation, Pay to Play, Perjury

It’s. Not. Just. Bill.  It’s all of them.  From Reddit’s The_Donald forum :

BREAKING: I believe I have connected a convicted child abductor who was caught stealing children in Haiti with the Clintons
(…)
But wait!  There’s more! (Sickeningly)
I truly believe the Clintons and their entourage to be evil.  Morally bankrupt.
Even if none of the above allegations (many courtesy of Wikileaks) are based in fact.
Humans want to believe the worst about persons whom they already despise.  It makes it easier to put them in the why would I want to elect THEM column.
You should really go and read the whole blog post before casting your vote Tuesday.
Not forgetting about Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s gun control plans, the illegal sale of plutonium to Russia, arming ISIS, the countless mysterious deaths and intimidations, Bill’s serial rapes…
(I could go on – but I have to go take some Pepto now.)
This does NOT mean I am actively supporting the Republican candidate!  He may be a pig and has used inappropriate language, and at best is a populist (see Huey Long)
Libertarians?  Two governors with scant international experience?  One of who is a rebranded, gun-controlling Democrat?!  And the Presidential candidate supports global-warming taxes?!
(I’m not even mentioning the Greens or the Commies…  I know, I’m being redundant)
So VOTE.  Vote not with your heart, but with your brain.
THE REPUBLIC’S SURVIVAL DEPENDS ON IT.

Aeronautical Porcine Creatures!

flying-pigYep, pigs must be flying!

I’m actually writing about a sporting event.

(for the new reader, you’ve heard of sports widows?  I’m a sports orphan.  My Dad, if he wasn’t playing, coaching or officiating baseball, basketball, football and hockey, he was watching them!  Being disabled at age 12, my Dad could no longer relate to me.  See?  Sports Orphan.)

Consequently, I occasionally watch Olympic events, but none of the sports listed above.  The last time I watched an entire baseball game was probably with my Dad.  And he passed in 1977.

And certainly have no interest in any foreign sport.

My roommate hails from CHICAGOLAND.  And, while she is not a big sports fan, has loyalty to the region of her birth.  In spite of the fact she has lived in Arizona since 1981.

Which brings me to the whole pigs flying thing.  She wanted to watch Game Seven of the Chicago Cubs/Cleveland Indians World Series last night.

And she didn’t want to watch it alone…

Sigh.

So, I joined her in watching the game.  Turns out, it was a pretty even match-up (except for that Cleveland pitcher who was more of cyborg than man!)

And, we watched the entire game together.  Including the tarping of the field and through the Tenth inning.  All the way to the end.

Congratulations Cubbies!

And hats off to the Indians.  Both sides appeared gentlemanly and gave it their all.

Unlike the players in the political arena.  The game was peppered with thoroughly nasty political commercials.  And reports of vandalism and violence continue.

No riots or violence were reported following the World Series.

Maybe there’s a lesson which can be learned from this?

PS – The Joe Maddon for President bumper stickers will continue for sale on the sidebar through the election.  Joe is the Cubs manager.  All monies raised are donated to a charity of Joe’s choosing (he does this a lot!)

NYC election commissioner admits ‘all kinds of fraud’ in Project Veritas undercover video: ‘Your vote isn’t really counting’

Via Billy

The conservative nonprofit group Project Veritas has released an undercover video of a Manhattan Democratic representative on the city’s Board of Elections lamenting “all kinds” fraud, including voter fraud.

Commissioner Alan Schulkin unwittingly spoke to a member of Project Veritas last December at a United Federation of Teachers holiday party. Footage released Tuesday in conjunction with a piece by the New York Post shows him blasting fraud that New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s municipal ID program has cultivated in the city.

“He gave out ID cards, de Blasio. That’s in lieu of a driver’s license, but you can use it for anything,” Mr. Schulkinsaid Dec. 15. “But they didn’t vet people to see who they really are. Anybody can go in there and say, ‘I am Joe Smith, I want an ID card. It’s absurd. There is a lot of fraud. Not just voter fraud, all kinds of fraud … This is why I get more conservative as I get older.”

Mr. Schulkin added that “certain neighborhoods in particular” have unregistered voters bused around the city to vote multiple times. He would not say which neighborhoods, but when prompted on minority areas he replied, “Yeah, and Chinese, too.”

I don’t know about you, but I’m tiring of the whole ‘poor people are being disenfranchised if they are ID’d’ thing.  And the registering of dead folks to vote, and people who have voted multiple times, and illegal aliens and felons being allowed to vote.  The fact this seems to be heavily skewed in the direction of one party is not the issue.  It’s shouldn’t happen – period!  And I’m tired of seeing stories about such things.
In fact, I’m tired of the whole $%!^%^*&)%# election!
And the fact the ‘best’ we can choose from are a loudmouth demagogue populist, a card-carrying socialist, and a couple of minor league whack jobs.
We get the country we deserve.  Perhaps The Republic has run her course.
Sigh.

"Round up the usual suspects."
