File Photo- Stephen King
Today I learned that Stephen King is still alive.
It was by accident as I happened to be reading a story regarding the Impeachment of Donald J. Trump and the very real possibility that some Democrats may not vote in favor of all or any of the charges/articles being presented to the Legislature for consideration.
Apparently Jared Golden (D-ME) has voiced the intent to vote for only one of the articles. Being that “ME” stands for Maine and that is where Mr. King is buried… sorry, not yet buried as of today… it hit close to home so to speak.
It turns out that President Trump’s use of power to dismantle 70 years of socialist utopian enterprise is offensive to Mr. King and as far as Mr. King is concerned represents an abuse of power. It also seems that Mr. King is in favor of U.S. Politicians forcing foreign companies to install their family members onto Boards of Directors which supply annual incomes in exchange for influence in U.S. policymaking. And because of this Mr. King recognized that President Trump’s request to investigate such behavior in the spirit of positive cooperation between the United States and Ukraine is clearly extortion on the part of President Trump.
All of that being said, Mr. King is adamant that Representative Golden (D-ME) vote for BOTH articles of impeachment because this Anti-Socialist Tyrant in the White House must be stopped. If Rep. Golden decides not to do so, Mr. King has promised to unleash the fury of the undead masses to defeat him during the next election cycle.
I feel sorry for Rep. Golden. It is an impossible task to suddenly have to fend off a preternatural enemy from the grave… no, sorry again… from some creepy isolated locale hidden in the snowy woods where even birds dare not fly…
I wish you luck, Jared.
If you suddenly see Kathy Bates, anywhere, contact the authorities.
As to Stephen King, I will add him back into the pool.

It’s official, I’m jumping on the Biden 2020 Bandwagon.
Simply put, This man has earned my support.
Some of you may be asking why I have decided to go this direction so early in the Election Process.
Well, let me be clear…
I find him endlessly entertaining.
It might be the very first time I would DVR the debates between two Presidential Candidates just so I can watch them over and over. It would be the gift that would give and give…
Frankly, the determining factor was Corn Pop.
Yes, a pomade laden gangster with a straight razor and a penchant for diving convinced me that Joe Biden was my guy.
So I’m going to turn my record player on and cheer old Joe till the bitter end.

So there I was, Minding my own Scotch… and I get a message from X. In the most perfunctory way possible he made clear it was time for me to dig myself out from the secure comfort I’ve been enjoying and return to the fray.
Who am I to disagree?
I have to say right up front, it has been an exciting few months. From the ANTIFA-Facists to the complete fabrication of accusations used to slime a man who is far better than I, the Theater of the Absurd never ends.
The timeliness of X’s prompt is exquisite. It just so happened that I was struck by something so profoundly stupid that I was seriously considering putting my drink down. So let’s go there first…
A Gentleman by the name of Ruchir Sharma said the following on what used to be a go to network for business news;
“We may or may not believe in [American exceptionalism], but the financial markets have never believed in it to such an extent,” added Sharma, head of emerging markets and chief global strategist at Morgan Stanley Investment Management.”
Please read that again real quick.
I would ask Mr. Sharma what American Exceptionalism has to do with a booming economy? If he is speaking to Property Rights and the influx of foreign investment which is recognizing the United States as a Safe Haven for their wealth, then okay… maybe… but I’m not sure he is. I believe he is conflating the financial success of the current economic reforms, which are returning the United States to its position as the World Leading Economic Engine, with Freedom and Liberty of the Individual. I would then remind Mr. Sharma that it is the latter which constitutes “American Exceptionalism”.
Why is this such a big deal?
It’s a big friggin’ deal because the Socialist Democrats have been diligently dumbing down our population for decades in the hopes ‘educated’ individuals like Mr. Sharma will intentionally or unintentionally continue to do their work for them. Sadly, they have been very, very, successful.
However, in his defense let’s assume Mr. Sharma knows what American Exceptionalism is. Now let’s take the beginning of his assertion… “We may or may not believe in [American Exceptionalism]…”. I then have to ask who it is that does not believe in Freedom and Liberty of the Individual? You speak as if you know or this opening qualification would not be necessary.
Yes, yes… I know these people are out there Hammering away at the Malleable Proletariat but I like to have them on the record so we all know who they are which is why I ask. (One of the reasons I’ve been hiding out around the Barnes and Noble in Tyson’s Corner, aside from all the TOTALLY COMMON and super awesome Gang Rape Parties that EVERYONE has ALL THE TIME around the short hop to Bethesda, is watching how Trump’s mere existence is bringing these Socialist Democrat A-holes out into the open.)
So Who is it, Mr. Sharma, that does not believe in American Exceptionalism? Who is it exactly that does not believe in the Freedom and Liberty of the Individual and the power inalienable rights has unleashed upon the World propelling the United States to the most powerful country on Earth in just a short few hundred years? Who are these people who believe a person’s rights are bestowed upon them by Government made up of fallible, elitist, narcissistic beings and not God… or the Universe… or simply because they Exist?
It’s okay, Mr. Sharma, I know you can’t do this for several of reasons. 1.) You may be one of those people. 2.) You like your paid gig and wish to keep it by specifically not offending those fallible, narcissistic elitists who employ you. 3.) Both 1 and 2.
So allow me to say what I’m hoping you meant to say.
The Current Economic Boom occurring in The United States is substantially due to the removal of barriers upon the Engine of Capitalism which were erected by Socialist Scum as they believe it’s not ‘Fair’ that Free (er) Markets are so damned successful and restraining them is the only hope for their foolish Command and Control Economic Idiocy to catch up.
Giving you the benefit of the doubt, I’m sure that’s what you wanted to say…
Now we wait for Ruth Buzzy Ginsberg to retire and the ensuing melt down.
The Left is the proverbial ‘drowning man’… it’s going to get worse before it gets better.

In every post-election interview the Leftists have been groping for Pragmatism.
They are Praying that Donald Trump is not an Ideologue, like President Obama, and will compromise with them on all policy decisions… until they can regain some power in the house, senate or both, two years from now.
You can smell the fear.
The Fear is not that Trump is coming for your children, gay, straight, hispanic, latino, black, asian, Irish, even the French etc.
The Fear is that Trump might actually put in place solutions regarding Immigration.
The Socialists in our country are afraid that he will indeed build a wall, fence, moat… whatever… and then move to the really scary part. They Fear he will create a work visa program which makes it easy, and legal, for our neighbors to the North and South of us to come here and work if they choose to. The Democrats realize that once legitimized in such a fashion these workers would no longer be paying Social Security under stolen Social Security Numbers… they would no longer be in the shadows… and most importantly, They would no longer be able to offer up the ridiculous argument that They should have the right to vote. And, if they do desire to become a citizen of the United States the debate now moves on to our actual immigration policies… That We Already Have… and don’t enforce. No more “They’re going to deport my Grandma!” Hogwash.
Adding insult to injury it would now fall upon the left to remove this work privilege from our neighbors if they ever want to save the Socialist Voting base for generations to come.
I dream of a number of things, but foremost is I dream of a wonderful explosion in private charities making available such things as education to ‘ex-pat Canadians and Mexicans’ who reside here for work. (If Mark Zuckerburg wants to fill Facebook full of brilliant Mexicans and Canadians… awesome!) I dream of an explosion of hard-working, genuinely terrific, people coming here from Mexico and Canada to make some money and help support their families abroad. I dream the United States will not only benefit from this new influx of workers, but those workers will benefit from enjoying the bounty provided by American Exceptionalism and begin wondering why their respective home countries don’t embrace Free Market Capitalism as Governing Theory.
I predict that the Senate Minority Leader, Chuck Schumer, will become Mr. Filibuster in the Senate… because the Liberal Leftists cannot afford for any of this to happen.
I also predict the Democrat Party will be the party of “No!” to all things.
It is going to be an interesting 4-years… possibly 8.

There is an urban myth out there that needs to be addressed.
“Binge drinking is bad.” No, wait. Wrong one.
“Compromise is good.”
If you’re a product of the public schools (like I am) it should be expected you believe we should all get along. You probably think our elected representatives should be having dinner together, holding hands and making out in the back of dark movie theaters. You might even think it is GOOD when they all get together and create legislation effecting the rest of us.
In other words, you might believe passing lots of bills is a terrific way to judge their productivity. You think the government should “do something”… You might have been taught that the founders of this country wanted our leaders to strip down and embrace each other every time they met so they could create lots of really cool law. If any of this rings true for you, what you “know” is wrong. You should demand a refund on that free public education.
Here’s the truth, our system of government was designed specifically to be slow, cumbersome and rarely produce laws. It was created to make sure no single branch could run rampant over the others with this purpose in mind. It was designed for a fight… over everything… in the hopes that whatever came out was only what was absolutely necessary. Less was more. Nothing getting done was fine, if not preferred. (I’ve floated this idea around the house but have not had much traction.)
We have come a long way from that original intent. Over the last 100 years we have entitled our politicians to do whatever they want. They have learned to routinely create law outside of the Constitution because they know that the odds are no-one will challenge it. And, if their law does get challenged it will take too long and the American people will lose interest, or more often think they are owed whatever the law might “give” them.
These same politicians also know they can slow down the process of any legal challenge by appointing judges who also don’t care what limitations the Constitution puts in place. Such judges then present their rulings utilizing previous unconstitutional rulings they or their fellow travelers passed down earlier. Amazingly, they are also not above using foreign law for validation… which I’m very sure the Founding Fathers did not intend. The fact that we revel in our lack of understanding and promote such behavior in our leaders should be frightening. It has brought us to a very scary place. Haven’t you wondered why alcohol sales are up? We’re frightened, but too uninformed to know why. It’s like a horror movie where the person about to get killed runs around the house and turns all the lights… off.
There has been a determined movement over the last 80 years to position the U.S. Constitution as too restrictive. (Our current president is on the record promoting this very idea.) But you will most often find it repeated by the “open-minded” who have not taken the 5 minutes needed to read it, let alone try to discuss and understand it. (They don’t need to read it… their hearts tell them what they need to know… what’s scary about that is they vote…) These are also the people who think we should all give each other big wet sloppy kisses… all the time. To them, getting along to “help the country” sounds so nice it requires no further exploration on their part.
To make things worse, there are too many people who want to be led and then insist you must be led as well. These people have found a home on both sides of the aisle. The Founders were aware this would always be a reality. The defense they gave us against such people was an extremely well-defined and very restrictive document, that could be changed, in other words amended, if needed… but it would take an act of congress. (Yes, that’s where the phrase came from.)
What it comes down to is that you have two sides to choose from. One side subscribes to individual freedom and one does not. What makes one side somewhat sinister is that it wants to control you with “the best of intentions”. Bear in mind, those who believe the sheep need to be led never seem to count themselves among the sheep….
So there must always be a war between those who know you are too stupid to make decisions for yourself (Statists/Socialists) and those of us who think you are the only person who knows what’s best for you. (Free-market Capitalists) If you give it a moment of thought, does it make sense that a person who subscribes to individual freedom be buddies with a person who believes in the soft slavery of statism? It’s really as simple as that. The line in the sand is Force.
In conclusion, we are not supposed to get along. We are not supposed to compromise our individual freedoms. Ever.
If you need proof, compromise with Socialists is what got us here today… bankrupt, having our e-mail and phones call tapped, “intelligence agents” looking at our daughters cell phone pictures and Facebook pages while your grandmother is getting molested at the airport. And the useful idiots continue begging for more Bipartisanshitt…

If (They retained them… this was from 2014 but remains true.) the Republicans pull out Majorities in Both Houses…
Expect a renewed Scream for Bipartisanship to be heard ’round the World.
If you listen closely it is already starting.
Here’s how this goes;
Leftists gain power in two or more Branches of Government and they do whatever they can to move the United States closer to the Socialist Utopia of their Dreams.
Once Opposition to the Liberal Left gains enough power to prevent the Socialists from Moving Forward… the Leftists cry for Compromise and ‘Working Together’.
(You must come to terms with the fact that Socialists make up the Entirety of the Democrat Party and a Majority of the Republican Party in order to fully understand what I’m saying here.)
And as I have stated in the past, any compromise with Socialism is a Win for Socialism. And they’ve been Winning in America for over 100-years.
The Progressives will continue to Plea for Hand-shaking, Golf Outings and Communal Lunches with their supposed Opponents right up until they regain the Power they Previously possessed.
Then it Starts all over Again.
I will refer you to Bipartisanshitt for my full opinion on this ridiculous cycle.
When we support “Getting Along”, we are supporting the Whole Sale Destruction of America as it was Founded. We are Abandoning your Freedom and Liberty.
Working ‘Across the Aisle’ only gives the Party of Socialism what it wants… just a little slower than it wants it.
Look for this Hogwash coming to a news broadcast near you.
And when you do, remember that Compromise is what got us here.
I might just start a Drinking Game revolving around the Cry for Compromise. But being perpetually intoxicated could be a bit much even for me. Although….

(Originally posted 121214. What if it’s not the Russians offering up Thousands of Socialist E-mails? Just sayin’…)
One must ask why.
While the release of the ‘CIA Sucks Report’ was a foregone conclusion given Diane Feinstein’s drive to leave a parting gift to her Leftist base…
I remain convinced the timing of the report was designed to remove Jonathon Gruber from the headlines and allow the mainstream liberals something else to put on the evening news. (I continue to believe Gruber, and his honesty about how Liberals see American’s, is profoundly damaging.)
That aside, the report begs the question “Why?”.
Why would you rehash what we already know?
Why would you emphasize enhanced terrorist interrogation techniques and our efforts to keep them alive while in captivity such as Rectal Feeding? (I would remind you all that there are certain restaurants in Feinstein’s own San Francisco specializing in that very thing.)
Why would you give additional specific information allowing the remaining Terrorist A-holes to cross reference and pinpoint those involved?
I believe this fight started with Benghazi. It continued with the summary ‘execution’ of the Afghanistan Chief of Station’s career by officially outing his name.
And, the apparent conflict is being taken to a brand new level with the release of this report.
Is the CIA not being cooperative enough with the Socialists in our Government?
Might they have issues with how they are being tossed under the bus by an Administration that practises Drone Diplomacy? Our deteriorating relationship with Israel? Allowing North Korea and Iran to acquire Nuclear Weapons and the means to ‘deliver’ them? Our inability to keep secrets? Our ceding the Middle East to the Terrorists after shedding American Blood to keep it out of their hands?
Are our covert Agencies not being quiet enough when it comes to the murder of our Diplomat and security personnel in Benghazi? Could it be they are not on board with the Administration, and the rest of the Leftists, who didn’t want to appear ‘aggressive’ to the rest of the world by providing adequate security?
Is this just another attempt to paint Bush as a Domestic Terrorist since we are ‘all citizens of the world’ according to our own home-grown Socialists?
I believe it’s all the above.
Feinstein thinks, because of her retirement, she is now beyond the reach of the American people, and this is a flying f-you to the very agency and agencies she over saw. The very same Agencies whose techniques she previously, and repeatedly, approved of.
The Covert folks do not seem interested in being quiet about how this Administration is conducting itself. They are not interested in being hung out to die… so to speak.
They do not seem interested in continuing to do what they must while being used as political pawns in a game that is decidedly anti-capitalist.
There a was a time that many of us could fool ourselves into thinking that those who professed to be Socialists were doing so in order simply to get elected.
Now many of us, and I must conclude those in the intelligence services as well, are finding out those they thought to be donning a cloak of Progressive Populism are in fact… serious. And the very folks that put their lives on the line for the rest of us everyday are suffering in the worst ways because of it. Add to this that many of those we thought were Constitutional Loyalists are nothing of the sort.
We are watching the Republic crumble, and lives are being lost as a result.
Are we witnessing an awakening by those that keep the secrets?
Possibly… but I’m wrong more often than I’m right.
However, there is no doubt that a dark war has started in D.C.
Bits of it are finding sunlight.
It seems the Left wants it that way. What do they stand to gain?
Is it an attempt at a purge?
Are the Progressives trying to consolidate power as they have been trying to do in the Military?

There is no reason to oppose voter ID laws unless you intend to preserve your ability to commit voter fraud.
You cannot present a single reason why every person choosing to vote should not have a state issued, or otherwise verifiable, identification card with a picture which is required to be presented prior to practicing one of the most important acts imaginable in a Democratic Republic.
Not a single reason.
I must present picture ID to enter a bar.
I must present picture ID to rent a car.
I must present picture ID to get a hotel room.
I must present picture ID to fly in an airplane.
I must present picture ID when in every other country. (And they do not allow me to vote in their elections.)
I must present picture ID to purchase a home.
I must present picture ID to open a savings account.
I must present picture ID when pulled over for speeding.
I must present picture ID to get a job.
But… to “legally” screw up your life with my vote by electing idiots?
I can be anybody, and everybody, with no proof necessary… even dead… and vote.
The process of free and honest elections is a Pillar of Freedom.
If you vote for, or support the appointment of, these horrible people who want to preserve their right to cheat, you need to admit to yourself that you are also a horrible person. (We already know it.)

(This was a plea I made on July 22nd of 2015. And after last night’s debate, I have to extend a Thank You to Mr. Trump. It’s about time someone wrested Blue back from the Socialists and put them back in their Historic Color… of Oppression, Death and Destruction, Blood Red.)
You’re Just the Man to do It…
Back in 2000 during a ridiculous, and I still believe contrived, Media Argument over how to depict States on Electoral maps during Elections, The Leftists decided to seize the opportunity to sow yet more confusion where there was previously none to be found.
The Liberal Media all came together and ‘voted’ that instead of what had been colors traditionally, and more important historically, associated with the two primary U.S. political parties, Red for Democrats and Blue for Republicans, the colors should be reversed.
Believe it or not, up to that point there was no confusion.
RED was the color of The Democrat Party
BLUE was the color of The Republican Party
But the Liberal Media knew this was their chance to help their Party crawl out from underneath the accurate label, and color, of Socialism.
So they ‘voted’ to make Republicans RED and Democrats BLUE.
That’s all it took. The Media revised what History had already determined to be true.
Well, I for one am tired of this glaring revisionism to be accepted by anyone… let alone those of us who know what “RED” means.
RED remains the color of Socialism.
It is the color of Oppression, Destruction and Death Worldwide.
It is the color of Lying Populism intended to placate the Masses while cementing the Power of the Few over the Many.
It is the color of creating the Government Addicted.
It is the color of Slavery.
It is the color of Racial and Ethnic Division fomented for Political Gain.
It is the color of Blood shed in the name of Tyranny.
It is the color of Social Democracy and the Democrat Party.
During your run for the Presidency, please do me this one favor if you do nothing else, Take Blue Back.
And while you’re at it, remind the American People, and the myriad fools in the Republican Leadership, why Democrats are RED.
Thank You in Advance,
Mike at makeaneffort

We have moved from The Forgotten Man to… The Deplorables.
Now we discover our shadows sheltering,
The Invisible are the genuine victims, the product, the result, of Socialist Planners and the re-branding of International Socialism under the banner of Progressive Globalization.
They are the needlessly homeless, they are the disregarded and disenfranchised, they are those who are no longer looking for work and therefore, according to their leaders, no longer count…
They are our Children who cannot afford to leave home… They are our Young People who cannot afford to get an Education… They are our Young Adults who cannot afford to get Married… They are our Fellow Citizens who cannot find Work… and They are Those Among Us who cannot afford to Work…
They have been betrayed by the Leaders they Trusted… these very same Leaders who, while telling them they’re on their side, purposely deny their existence in order to prop up an Image of the Country’s Success and Recovery under Liberal Policies and Leftist Experiments.
This has been a long time coming, but we have arrived.
Welcome to Obama’s Blueprint for America.
Welcome to Progressive Globalization.
Welcome to the Socialist Utopia.
