Tucker Carlson eviscerates overindulged, liberal college student

November 24, 2016

This vacuous punk wants to be an American history teacher. Imagine him propagandizing students with his personal perspective that allows him to view his own parents as being able to afford his pricey education through money they garnered profiteering from slavery. Unless they’re a couple of hundred years old, it’s a difficult argument to follow. They foot the bill for their son’s private Hampshire College tuition to the tune of $62,000 a year. Here’s an example of what’s influencing his judgment.

First Thanksgiving

The First Thanksgiving by Jennie Augusta Brownscombe

We take time today to reflect on the many blessings we enjoy as citizens of this great nation, and wish the abundant bounties of this uniquely American holiday to each and every one of our readers.

Having just concluded a grueling political campaign season we are grateful for the election of a Republican president — Donald J. Trump — and his vice president, Mike Pence, along with  GOP majorities in the  House and Senate. The American people have spoken.

Do yourself a favor and read this inspiring Thanksgiving Proclamation by Revolutionary hero and our first President, George Washington, as he humbly asks “Almighty God” to bless this fledgling nation and her people.

Trump’s vow to enforce border security propelled him forward

November 10, 2016

Americans desire national security, respect for our sovereignty

Think back to when a more bombastic Donald Trump stood on the stage with 16 other Republican candidates and seemed the most unlikely of them all to be the last one standing. But his message that has resonated throughout his campaign remains a powerful yet easily understood one. No amnesty for illegals and build a wall

With that strategy, he was bucking the establishment honchos comprising the Republican National Committee that commissioned this self-analysis after the dismal  2012 elections

Their conclusion was  the party “must embrace and champion comprehensive immigration reform.” Americans know it more honestly as “amnesty”—- a magnanimous gift for the hordes of illegal invaders. Arizona abuts the porous border and we have been force-fed the “comprehensive” baloney from Jon Kyl, John McCain and Jeff Flake for years.

The RNC’s big tent concept was massaged to remessage the Republican brand to those who think we “don’t care about them.” Whether that is the task before a political party is up for debate. Especially so when they have blatantly disregarded our law to enter the U.S.

In 1992, Bill Clinton’s strategist James Carville coined the phrase “it’s the economy stupid,” as a keep-your-eye on-the-prize objective. Today it’s amnesty for illegals from Mexico, South and Central America as well as Russia, China and Middle Eastern countries that are state sponsors of terrorism. The main job of government is to provide safety to its citizens.

Barack Obama opened the floodgates to all comers looking to increase the Democrat voter base.  Hillary Clinton vowed to go even further. For years we’ve been given a static number of 10 -11 million illegals who are already here. As they continue to flood into the U.S. and have families once they arrive the number is actually closer to 30 million.

Donald Trump understands the significance of the amnesty message, and made securing our border a cornerstone of his campaign .No country exists without enforceable borders. Legal immigration, including assimilation to our language, values and customs, once known as Americanization, is welcomed. Being invaded by lawbreakers is not.

An excellent assessment of Donald  Trump’s ascension to the presidency of the United States, is written by Breitbart’s senior editor-at-large Joel B. Pollak. This excerpt states his case perfectly, illuminating why Trump was elected:

What the Republican establishment underestimated was how deeply Americans — including key Democratic constituencies, and even legal immigrants — resented amnesty. For some, it was a matter of economic competition. For others, it was a matter of the rule of law. And for others, it was a matter of cultural coherence.

Regardless, Donald Trump reached voters that the GOP had long forgotten by promising to “build a wall” with a “big, beautiful door.”

It was not a call to xenophobia. It was a claim that the diversity that Americans have always cherished — e pluribus unum — rested on the foundations of secure borders, and law enforcement, and fairness. If we don’t have a border, Trump argued, we don’t have a country.

Spare us Indigenous Peoples’ Day. Celebrate Columbus today

October 12, 2016

Christopher Columbus who was heralded for “sailing the ocean blue in 1492” is the latest victim to fall to the overarching lunacy of political correctness. In fact, Christopher Columbus is now regarded as a white exploiter of Indian tribes, bringing white men’s diseases from Europe and initiating the changing of the culture of the noble nomadic tribes, living in teepees and hogans, communicating via smoke signals and drums and without written languages.

President Benjamin Harrison established the Columbus Day holiday in 1892, the 400th anniversary of Columbus’ landing in the “New World” in 1492.

Next, the District of Columbia along with the cities Columbus, Ohio, Georgia, Mississippi and Indiana, will be forced to change their names. .Americans of Italian heritage should be outraged, but even Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, whose parents were Italian immigrants, voted to go along with the program, rationalizing that Phoenix doesn’t observe Columbus Day as a paid holiday. The move won’t rename an established celebration, as other cities have done — yet.


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.
