Eric Trump: “My father is running for you!”

July 21, 2016

RNC HIGHLIGHT:

Donald Trump’s 32-year-old son Eric, took his turn at the podium at the Republican National Convention Wednesday night and gave this moving speech, which he wrote himself, about his father.

If you missed this marvelous speech, watch it here. If you saw this speech last night, watch it again. It will make you proud of our Republican nominee, who is not only a successful entrepreneur but has also raised an extraordinary family.

RNC LOWLIGHT:

 Ted Cruz humiliates himself and likely dooms any future political plans with his petulant refusal to endorse the Republican Party nominee Donald Trump after accepting an invitation to speak to the convention. Cruz, sounding a lot like a candidate gearing up for 2020, addressed the delegates with these words: “To those listening, please, don’t stay home in November, stand, and speak, and vote your conscience, vote for candidates up and down the ticket who you trust to defend our freedom and to be faithful to the Constitution.”

 Ted and Heidi Cruz were escorted out of the area to boos and calls of “Goldman Sachs!” a reference to Heidi Cruz’ longtime employment as an investment banker with a major player in what Cruz derided as the “Washington cartel” of bankers, lobbyists and major corporations. According to this March 24, 2015, USA Today article, Heidi Cruz joined Goldman in 2005 and ran its Houston wealth-management unit, which, according to the report, “handles portfolios for clients with an average net worth of $40 million.”

Cruz’ aspirations should be a lonely date with history. The remarkable rise of non-politician Donald Trump has not been without some bumps in the road. Yet he surged to the forefront in a crowed field of 17 GOP candidates, defying the negative predictions of political pundits.  He is the Republican nominee and his choice of Indiana Gov. Mike Pence as his Vice Presidential running mate has served to enhance the ticket.

AS IT SHOULD BE:

Ronald Reagan’s inherent elegance in joining with Gerald Ford in 1976 after his own defeat should have set a standard for Ted Cruz. Reagan, turned to Gerald Ford in unity, and stated,Mr. President, there is no substitute for victory.” (video) What a shame Ted Cruz didn’t get the message.

Standing to the left side of the screen beginning at 7:39 were House Minority Leader John Jacob Rhodes II and his wife Elizabeth. Rhodes, a conservative, Harvard educated lawyer and respected member of congress representing Arizona’s then-First Congressional District,  was part of a select group who met with Richard Nixon and encouraged him to resign the presidency in the wake of Watergate. In a then unforeseen set of circumstances Rhodes’ retirement set the stage for the political career of John McCain, who served one term in the U.S. House before being elected to the senate seat he is unable to graciously retire from after decades of veering further and further left.


Remembering our many blessings, responsibilities this Independence Day

July 4, 2016

4th of July Washington

 ….and honoring those 56 brave men who had the vision and strength of character to challenge authority and affix their signatures to the Declaration of Independence.  

Before signing the Declaration of Independence, our Founders included this memorable line:

 “And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.”

Now, 240 years later, we face tyranny from an overreaching federal government and judiciary intent on abolishing our Constitutional rights —- as well as inconceivably weakening our nation’s sovereign border—- in fact, welcoming America’s illegal invaders as a dominant political force.

Our freedom is slipping away as Washington’s intrusive power grows. The principles on which our nation was founded have never been more at risk as the federal government encroaches on our personal health care, increases taxes, oppresses our families with unsustainable national debt, attempts to negotiate rationally with contemptible regimes while gutting our national defense. Our Second Amendment freedoms are being curtailed. The Obama administration steadfastly refuses to call Islamic extremism by its name as increasingly gruesome acts are committed by its adherents and ISIS recruitment surges. Unable to be vetted “refugees” from terror sponsoring nations are granted unfettered access to our country by Barack Obama and his willing congressional cohorts.

We American citizens have a moral responsibility to let our voices be heard. This is a contact list of those who ran promising to represent us. We pay their salaries.  Give them a call.

May God continue to bless America.


NRA goes to bat for Trump, hits Hillary in her Benghazi

June 30, 2016

The National Rifle Association has released it’s first pro-Trump ad of the 2016 election cycle. The powerful ad features Mark “Oz” Geist, a Marine Corps veteran who provided security services in Benghazi, Libya.

“A lot of people say they’re not going to vote this November because their candidate didn’t win,” Geist begins as he strolls through a military cemetery. “Well, I know some other people who won’t be voting this year either. Hillary as President? No thanks.

I served in Benghazi. My friends didn’t make it. They did their part. Do yours.”

In this 2015 interview with Ammoland, Donald Trump made his views clear as he talked politics and guns, beginning with this statement:

“I am a Life Member of the NRA and am proud of their service in protecting our right to keep and bear arms. The NRA’s efforts to stop dangerous, gun-banning legislation and regulation is invaluable. The media focus on those efforts overshadows the great work the NRA does on behalf of safety and conservation.”


McCain needs $100 grand….quick

June 28, 2016

Another “Friend” email has gone out from John McCain — including to many who detest being referred to as his friend.  He needs money and says he’ll accept any amount, including $5.

Sure thing.

Using “the royal we,” the 80-year-old running for his sixth six-year term, implores, “We have just under four days before our campaign’s most important fundraising deadline is here and all eyes are watching me and our campaign to see how strong we are.”

Skipping right past his Primary opponent, Dr. Kelli Ward, a physician and conservative former state senator, McCain cunningly raises the specter of  “liberal Democrat Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick.“

If McCain’s so worried about Ann Kirkpatrick, why are the airwaves filled with deceptive ads fantastically accusing Kelli Ward of voting to help ISIS, a fictional feat that would be impossible for anyone to achieve in a state legislature. Is it any wonder the slippery McCain was censured by elected GOP state delegates? In retaliation, he used a San Francisco Obama donor to purge the party activists from the AZ GOP ranks. His underhanded tactics both in Arizona and in D.C. have conspired to make McCain the least popular U.S. senator.

His lobbyist friends won’t let him down. It’s a symbiotic relationship more commonly known as, “I’ll wash your back and you wash mine.” — which has mutually benefited them and him for decades.. 

But if McCain’s actually worried about money, all he has to do is roll over and tap Cindy Hensley McCain on the shoulder. It’s a perk of being married to a beer heiress, running one of the nation’s largest Anheuser-Busch distributors. 

Begging is so déclassé.


The Vicious Snake: recited by Donald Trump

June 23, 2016

Food for thought

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump began reciting the lyrics to a song titled, “The Vicious Snake,” at his rallies several weeks ago.  Trump included this reading in his recent Phoenix appearance.
