Is this 1968 ?

Ever since the Black Lives Matters movement started I have been very skeptical of it. It reminds me too much of the Occupy Wall Street movement. it has been a pseudo movement designed by George Soros and the Democratic Party. In the case of Occupy Wall Street the press passed it off as a grass roots movement to counter the actual grass roots movement that was the Tea Party. The Tea Party had a huge impact on the 2010 mid term congressional elections. Between the creation of the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011 and Obama unleashing the IRS dogs on the Tea Party he was able to thwart any serious threat to his reelection chances in 2012. All week I have been wondering why there has been no rioting in Tulsa Oklahoma and so much turmoil and anarchy in Charlotte. The Tulsa shooting supports the narrative of the BLM. A White Cop shoots an unarmed black male. It actually appears on the surface that this cop had an itchy trigger finger and she overreacted. In the Charlotte shooting it appears that the cop was justified in shooting the perp, who was also Black. This shooting does not fit the narrative but it doesn't matter. Oklahoma is firmly in the Trump column but North Carolina is still too close to call. This is why the rent a rioters were sent in by Soros. They are being bussed into North Carolina and not into Oklahoma. The race baiting Southern Democratic Party constantly whipped up the hate and fear of Southern whites toward Blacks in order to get their votes. The modern Democrats are doing the same thing by playing on the fear and bias of Blacks, instead of poor ignorant White Southerners. The Southern Democratic Party never cared about the welfare of poor Southern whites. Not until the passage of the 1964 and 1965 Civil Rights Acts did the level of education, and the socioeconomic status of the South improve. It became a two party region. Like other sections of the country. Now the Democratic Party is condemning Blacks to the inner city plantations. They are condemned to low unemployment and hopeless violence in exchange for their vote. That is why she is going to Charlotte this weekend. It is just a campaign stop for her. In my opinion the violence will backfire. She may get the Black vote but the violence is pushing whites into the arms of Trump. I saw this happen in 1968. Like Trump, Nixon was not trusted or likeable but he was the law and order candidate. Americans were tired of the rioting and lawlessness after the assassination of MLK and the rioting at the Democratic National Convention that year. It seems that the Democrats in their hubris may have overplayed their hand this time.

I Had A Dream

  I grew up in a world dominated by white people, primarily the white male. Most blue collar and professional jobs were held by white males. I didn't know of a female doctor, lawyer, or many professional women. The same could be said of blacks and people of color. A woman was expected to be a nurse, teacher, secretary, retail clerk etc. Black people were maids, nanny's, gardeners, and laborers for the most part. Most firemen and police officers were white males. Our TV programs, and commercials were done by white people. NASA and the astronauts were white male. Most of our officer Corps in the military was white male. If a man cheated on his wife or girlfriend it was looked on as boys will be boys. If a woman cheated, she was a slut. There was definitely institutionalized racism and America was a paternalistic sexist society. Even as a child I was aware of this and in many ways I felt out of sync with society. Like society and the problems of today it was all bigger than I was. As a result I have always been my own person and marched to a different drummer. When Martin Luther King gave his ( I have a Dream) speech in August of 1963 I was 13 years old. Even then I thought it was a great speech and his dream for America was my dream. Who could logically disagree with the concept that a man should be judged by the content of his character and not by the color of his skin? My parents taught me that I could rise as far as my drive, ambition and talents could take me. Even as far as being president of the United States. In 1963 the parents of a Black child, a Hispanic child, an American Indian child, or a female child of any ethnicity  could not realistically teach their children what my parents taught me. My friends and relatives hated King because they saw him as an agitator and charlatan in the same way that we see Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton today. At the age of thirteen I wasn't old enough to evaluate King as clearly as I do today. Like Kennedy, we didn't know about the womanizing and his dark side. However King wasn't asking for anything unreasonable. He was simply asking for society to accept Black people as equals. For America to live up to the long overdue promise given in the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. I knew that America needed to change. The evidence was all around me. As I got older I began to realize that King wasn't the cause of violence. He kept the lid on violence. King truly believed in a non-violent approach to Civil Rights. The militants were impatient at the rate of change and justifiably so. Like John Brown in 1859 they were taking the wrong approach to the problem. Brown ended up with a noose around his neck. Violence caused push back and resentment among whites. King was using civil disobedience and moral persuasion. When people saw Black people being killed, beaten and spat upon for trying to do the things that whites took for granted there was a moral connection with people of conscience. His non violent approach in the end won the day over the violent approach of groups like the Black Muslims, Black Panthers, the followers of H. Rap Brown and Stokely Carmichael.

  In the years since the 1964 and 65 Civil Rights Acts I have seen tsunami of change for the better. A parent can realistically tell their female children or children of color that they can go as far as their talents and hard work can take them. Interracial couples can be together without the fear of being beaten or lynched. I celebrate that change. Yes, there is still racism and sexism but it is not institutionalized like it was when I was a child. During the 1980's and 90's I believed that a Black person would be elected president in my lifetime.This was because the country leaned to the right during that time and a conservative Black would be more acceptable to white voters. My Black friends would laugh at me or deride me for saying that. They didn't believe that a Black person would ever be elected in America and if they did they would be assassinated. However I mistakenly thought that it would be a conservative. We were already heading in that direction. Colin Powell was Reagan's National Security Advisor, Powell was Bush Seniors Chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Finally he was Secretary of State under George W. Bush. Condoleezza Rice was his National Security Advisor. I didn't want just any Black president in order to break the color line. I wanted a conservative Black president. One that would be an inspiration to all Americans. I would never expect my president, Black, White or female to go on an apology tour for America. A Blessing Tour would be more appropriate. I would expect my president tell the world how they have been blessed by the very existence of America. How exceptional our country is. Not because our people are any more exceptional than anyone else in the worldbut because the principles expressed in our Declaration of Independence and Constitution are exceptional. I would like a president that would remind the world of how we helped Europe and Asia rise from the ashes of World War II. Ally and the defeated alike. I would like a president who reminds the world of the generosity of the average American. How they are so willing to volunteer their time and money whenever the world suffers from a disaster such as an earthquake, tsunami, typhoon, famine or an AID's epidemic. Instead of touting the supposed beauty of a seventh century regressive religion I would remind people that Christianity had a renaissance. Something the so-called religion of peace desperately needs to experience for itself. Finally, for the world, America is that "Shining City on a Hill" that Ronald Reagan envisioned. Not a place that people flee from but flee too. Yes Obama, America has made mistakes, but it needs no apology.

  On a domestic level I thought that we were on the verge of fulfilling Martin Luther King's dream in 2008. That was until the angriest Black man in America was elected president. We have gone from King's Lookout and Stone Mountain vision to a racial valley of dry bones. Because of Obama, racial relations are the worst since the 1960's. As it was then our cities are a powder keg of unrest. Unlike the 60's Blacks of today have not experienced the racism of their parents and grandparents my age. Obama and the race merchants like Al Sharpton have perpetuated the myth that Blacks are targeted by White cops. White people are more likely to be killed by a White cop than Black people are. Statistics do not back up the "big lie" that has been perpetrated by Obama and his cronies  Blacks are dying more often at the hands of their own people than at any time in history. This is because cops are no longer aggressively policing urban areas, getting the guns and bad guys off of the street. This leads to the deaths of more innocent people and Black youth. In 1988 I drove through New Orleans. While sitting at a red light a man walked up with a squidgy and wiped my windshield clean. When he was through he held out his hand for a quarter. I was totally caught off guard because I had never experienced anything like this. I had no change but my friend Dave Gaxiola handed me a quarter. I heard later that these guys would use the squidgy to crack your windshield if you refused to pay. Mayor Giuliani cleaned up the crime in New York City by aggressive policing. He arrested the people committing petty crimes such as the squidgy people, panhandlers and petty thiefs. Giuliani also had his police officers doing spot searches at random on the streets. The crime rate dropped because the petty criminals were also committing the serious crimes. Instead of Obama sticking his nose into such matters as the arrest of Harvard professor Henry Gates. Accusing the campus police of "acting stupidly". Jumping to conclusions about the deaths of Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown before the cases were even investigated. Contributing to the rise of the Black Lives Matters movement. The ruining of careers and the actual targeting of not only white police officers but officers of color. Rather than allaying the mistrust of Blacks toward white police officers, he ignores the real problem. Gang activity in urban areas. His economic policies condemn Black people to hopelessness and poverty. He has set the stage for what could be a real race war in this country. The saddest thing about Obama's legacy is that his whole presidency was one big missed opportunity. A chance to finally bring about racial healing and achieve Martin Luther Kings dream. The dream that I have shared all of these years. Martin Luther King's role models were men of peace. Jesus Christ, Mahatma Gandhi, and Henry David Thoreau. Obama's role models were the radical Marxist thug Saul Alinsky, the Communist Frank Marshall Davis and Jeremiah Wright. Because of Barack Obama Martin Luther Kings dream is now a national nightmare.        

The Clinton Cult

Jim Jones

Definition of a cult - A system of religious veneration and devotion directed toward a particular figure or object. A misplaced or excessive admiration for a particular person or thing.

Maybe I am in the wrong part of the country but I don't run into that many white Democrats that like Barack Obama. Most Democrats I know hate Obama but they absolutely love the Clinton's. Which makes me think that they are racist. I had a relative like that. She always voted Democratic until Obama came along. She told me that she would never vote for a Black person. Republicans and Conservatives will vote for a Black Republican in a heartbeat but we are constantly accused of racism. Go figure. When it comes to the Clinton's, white Democrats remind me of cult members. The evidence of corruption, and abuse of power is legion. and overwhelming. Doesn't matter, they keep drinking the Kool-Aid. There is nothing more maddening than to hear someone defend the Clinton's in the face of this evidence. I have a Democratic friend that hates Obama but loves the Clinton's. Whenever I ask him to tell me one thing that Bill or Hillary ever accomplished all he can say is that his 401K was better under Bill Clinton than under George W. Bush. This attitude was very prevalent during the Clinton presidency. Bill could lie, obstruct justice, abuse women, break the law. Didn't matter, as long as the economy was good. Trump was castigated for saying he could shoot someone and not lose votes. Whether that is true, I don't know, but in the Clinton's case I believe it. At least among Democrats. It is not the Clinton's that are guilty, according to their supporters. It's the vast right wing conspiracy. Their crimes are seen as much ado about nothing or in the case of Bill, I love this one, his crimes didn't rise to the level of impeachment. It was just about sex. There is none so blind as he who will not see. I was a Democrat until I was in my 30's. However I had the capacity for change. I took stock of what I believed and found that the Democrats did not represent my beliefs in any shape or form. Ronald Reagan taught me that I had been a conservative all along. I just didn't know it. If you refuse to consider the other side of an argument, you cut yourself off from any possibility of growth and arriving at truth.

Making America Great Again

  "We come to celebrate and give thanks for the remarkable life of J. William Fulbright, a life that changed our country and our world forever and for the better. . . . In the work he did, the words he spoke and the life he lived, Bill Fulbright stood against the 20th century’s most destructive forces and fought to advance its brightest hopes".

These were the words that Bill Clinton spoke at the funeral of Arkansas senator J. William Fulbright, a staunch segregationist who signed the Southern Manifesto protesting the Brown vs. the Board of Education Supreme Court decision in 1954. The manifesto was signed by 101 Southern congressmen and senators. Only two were Republican. He also participated in a filibuster led by Southern Democrats against the 1964 Civil Rights Act which lasted for 83 days. Fulbright was Bill Clinton's mentor that helped launch his political career, seek a Rhodes scholarship, and he helped him receive a deferment from draft during the Vietnam War. Clinton was sued in 1989 by the NAACP  under the federal Voting Rights Act of 1965 for suppressing the black vote in Arkansas. The Arkansas Gazette of December 6, 1989, states: “Plaintiffs offered plenty of proof of monolithic voting along racial lines, intimidation of black voters and candidates and other official acts that made voting harder for blacks…the evidence at the trial was indeed overwhelming that the Voting Rights Act had been violated…” The article continues: During his 12-year tenure, Governor Clinton never approved a state civil-rights law. However, he did issue birthday proclamations honoring Confederate leaders Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee. He also signed Act 116 in 1987. That statute reconfirmed that the star directly above the word “Arkansas” in the state flag “is to commemorate the Confederate States of America.” Arkansas also observed Confederate Flag Day every year Clinton served… When Ted Kennedy threw his support behind Obama instead of Hillary in 2008 Clinton said “the only reason you are endorsing him is because he’s black. Let’s just be clear.” Adding "A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us coffee". Then lets don't forget that Hillary won Planned Parenthood's Margaret Sanger award.  Sanger was a virulent racist and eugenicist. Hillary said the following “It was a great privilege when I was told that I would receive this award. I admire Margaret Sanger enormously. Her courage, her tenacity, her vision … When I think about what she did all those years ago in Brooklyn, taking on archetypes, taking on attitudes and accusations flowing from all directions, I’m really in awe of her. There are a lot of lessons we can learn from her life, from the causes she launched and fought for and scarified for so greatly.” Hillary was called before Congress. U.S. Rep. Christopher Smith (R-N.J.) made the following statement “the  poor, disenfranchised, weak, disabled, a person of color (and) an unborn child are among the so-called undesirables that Sanger would exterminate from the human race.” Clinton responded: “I admire Thomas Jefferson, his words and his leadership — and I deplore his un-repentant slave holding. I admire Margaret Sanger being a pioneer and trying to empower women to have some control over their bodies — and I deplore the statements you have referenced. That is the way we often are when we look at flawed human beings. There are things we admire, and things that we deplore.” 

  I would argue that Jefferson was in favor of gradual emancipation. This is why he declared that "All men were created equal" in the Declaration of Independence. Jefferson realized that his generation was not ready for emancipation and his words were a post dated check that could only be cashed at a future date. This does not excuse his participation in the institution of slavery but it is unfair to call him an unrepentant slave holder. Sanger on the other hand did not believe that all men were created equal and she was committed to the destruction of the Black race. Hillary has her own cache of racist quotes. In 1974, after Bill Clinton lost his bid for a Senate seat, Hillary lashed out at campaign manager Paul Fray calling him a, “f*cking Jew bastard!” When she was first lady she called young Black men “super-predators” and she also said, “We have to bring them to heel,” While in the senate she disparaged people from India by the following. “I love this quote. It’s from Mahatma Gandhi. He ran a gas station down in St. Louis for a couple of years. Mr. Gandhi, do you still go to the gas
station? In 2005 she said  “I am adamantly against illegal immigrants.” something that she calls Donald Trump a racist for today. During the 2008 campaign she started rumors about Obama's place of birth. She was the original "Birther" and was also the first person to release pictures of Obama in full Muslim garb. Trump is called a racist for forcing Obama to produce a birth certificate. In April of this year Hillary and New York mayor Bill de Blasio joked about how lazy Black people are and joked about being on “colored people’s time”.

Now that we have firmly established that the Clinton's and the Democrats are racist hypocrites I want to address what Bill Clinton said about Trump's use of the phrase "Make America Great Again". Bill said “If you’re a white Southerner, you know exactly what it means, don’t you? What it means is, ‘I’ll give you the economy you had 50 years ago, and I’ll move you back up on the social totem pole, and other people down.” Oh really Bill!! You should know. You used the phrase at least three times in your 1992 campaign. Once for Hillary in 2007 and she also used the phrase that year. To me, making America great again means making the dollar the strongest currency in the world. Like it was when I was in the military. Creating an economy unmatched by any in the world and of consistent solid growth. Not the persistent growth of 2% or less each year. I want an economy where good jobs are available for everyone. If a person works an extra job it is not for survival but to buy a new car or take a nice vacation. I want a military that is as strong as it was as late as the 1980's and a Commander -in- Chief as feared and respected as Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy and Ronald Reagan. No, I don't want the racism of the 1950's and 60's but I would like to see more men participating in the raising of their own children, more marriage, less drugs, and the personal morality of that period. However, I know that is a pipe dream. Bill, don't project your own racism on me. Quite frankly I am tired of Democrats trying to tell me what I am thinking. I hope you are too.

Freedom Of Expression

  We have heard a lot lately about Colin Kaepernick's 1st Amendment right to protest by sitting down during the playing of the national anthem. I guess it is also his right to wear socks with pigs wearing police hats on them during practice. Actually he doesn't have the right to sit down during the national anthem or wear pig socks. He is an employee of the NFL and they have the right to require a certain standard of behavior. If he was a fan sitting in the seats he would have the right to remain seated but not as a player. It is obvious because of his race, and his cause, that the NFL, like society as a whole is copping out. Lets be honest. If a white player sat down during the national anthem because he was upset over the government's refusal to stop illegal immigration or some other conservative cause I am sure that he would not be supported by the NFL or the media. The coach should take the stance of a hockey coach that I heard about today. He said that if any of his players sat on the bench during the national anthem they would be benched during the game. God bless him. What would the NFL do if a white player showed up to practice wearing Confederate flag socks? We all know the answer to that. Freedom of expression should apply to everyone in the NFL or not at all . I cannot wear a Confederate flag or a Dont Tread On Me patch on my security uniform. Employees of government jobs and other businesses are even suffering consequences because of their Facebook posts. I am tired of the double standard in society as a whole. The Black Lives Matter movement can stop traffic on interstates and block runways at airports but how long do you think the authorities would tolerate a white supremacist group doing the same thing. The bottom line is that if you take the left side of an issue your right to express yourself is celebrated. If you are right then you are wrong.

Liberty And Independence Forever

Comments on David Crocketts final election defeat (11 August 1835) I concluded my speech by telling them that I was done with politics for the present, and they might all go to hell, and I would go to Texas.

"Pop, pop, pop! Boom, boom, boom! throughout the day. No time for memorandums now. Go ahead! Liberty and Independence forever". Last entry in Crockett's diary, (5 March 1836) The Alamo fell on March 6, 1836.

  I don't have a clue who is going to win this election and I don't think anybody else does. For a while now I have predicted a Trump victory but recent polls are all over the place and the news media, along with establishment Republicans, want you to believe that Hillary will win in a landslide. As a political science minor in college I learned that presidential polls, for the most part, have been accurate through the years. Pollsters got it wrong in 1936 and 1948. I do know, however; about push polling and I believe many, if not most of these polls, could be push polls. This is because they are all over the place. In some polls Hillary has been ahead by double digits and in others she is only ahead by two or three points. Trump is ahead in others. These push polls are designed to give the impression that Hillary is so far ahead that Trump voters will be wasting their time going to the polls. I see some similarities between this election and 1948. Not to compare Trump with Truman but Thomas Dewey, the Republican running against Truman, thought that it was his year. The Republicans had been out of power since 1933 and the country was becoming more conservative. Dewey was playing it safe, like Hillary is doing now. Truman boarded a train and went on a whirlwind campaign swing across the country. On election day Truman won. The polls had it wrong. There is a famous picture of Truman holding up the Chicago Daily Tribune with the bold headlines, (Dewey Defeats Truman).  This is an election unlike anything that I have ever experienced in my life. Trump supporters could be in for a long night or it could be a huge upset for Trump. We will just have to wait and see.

  I have put a lot of thought to the consequences of this election. This may be our last shot at saving our liberties. Or at the very least delaying the inevitable. It may already be too late for America to turn things around. If Hillary wins this will be the last vote that I will ever cast in an election. Unlike Crockett I do not have Texas to escape to. Giving up my United States citizenship is not an option, which I would gladly do if I just had a feasible place to go. However as far as I can I will withdraw from the process of citizenship. I still love my country but I cannot deal with what is happening to it. Like Crockett I will tell the people that voted for Hillary, and the apathetic, that they can all go to hell. Liberty and independence forever.

Hillary's Daisy Girl Ad


  Hillary Clinton keeps running an ad talking about how unstable that Donald Trump is and that he can't be trusted with the nuclear codes. Lyndon Johnson successfully branded Barry Goldwater as unstable with his famous commercial of a little girl picking the petals off of a daisy while a mans voice was counting down in the background. The girl looks up as she is being obliterated by a nuclear explosion. The country would not be in the terrible shape that it is now if Goldwater had been elected. His national defense policy was much like Reagan's. Peace through strength. The Dem's tried to paint Reagan as unstable but it didn't work in his case. Like Reagan, Goldwater would not have led us into a nuclear war. He would not have led us into the quagmire of Vietnam. Finally there would have been no War on Poverty. The benefit of a Goldwater win would have been no counterculture movement and no rise of the radical left. No Barack Obama and no Hillary Clinton. If Trump does get elected, and tries to use our nuclear weapons, there is a good chance they wont work. We can thank every president from George H.W. Bush to the clown that is president now. The testing of nuclear weapons ended in 1992. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize that our nuclear forces are in terrible shape. If Hillary Clinton is elected the deterioration of our nuclear forces will continue in the face of a rising nuclear threat from China, Russia, Iran, North Korea, Pakistan, and the possible nuclear proliferation to Islamic terrorist groups. Trump may be unstable but I will take my chances. I know that the continued weakening of our nuclear forces in the face of such threats endangers the lives of my children and grandchildren. I will take the chance that Trump will begin the long process of strengthening our national defenses. That may not make us great again but it will make us stronger and safer.
