Forrest Trump

Run Forrest, Run!

A few years back I tapped out an observation regarding a strategy used by President Obama and Nansy Pelosi I termed “Blitzkrieg“. The Democrats had decided it was time to push as much Socialist Poison upon the United States as possible… all at once.

It was horribly brilliant.

Well, here we are again.  Only this time it’s the Republicans, let me rephrase that, the Trump Administration.  The strategy is still brilliant… just not horrible or poisonous.

Where Pelosi’s Blitzkrieg was ignored by the media, Trump does not suffer from a lack of opposition.  The Leftists own the press.  Period.  This is not news to anyone paying attention.  So Pelosi got a pass because it was all for ‘the greater good’ according to Elitist Aristocrats in the Media longing for a return of a King.

Now we are watching Donald Trump do the very same thing.

And what do we get?  We are being dosed with “Too Much Too Soon”… “We need more digestible bites”… “This loss in the Courts over a Travel Ban is a Huge Blow”… “We need to slow down the process!”

Hogwash.

What’s going on, and sadly it’s coming not just from the Democrats but from the Leftist Republicans as well, is screaming for more time to fabricate resistance to Trumps momentum.  It’s just darn difficult to bus minimum wage ‘protesters’ all over God’s Green Earth when you don’t know where they are needed most.  It’s also Very Expensive.  What?!  Do you think the Supporters of the Soft Slavery of Socialism are made of Money?!  Well, they are!  But that’s not the point!

The cries we are hearing to “slow down”, or critiques of the new Administration being “amateurish” are nothing more than pleading for additional time to get organized opposition in place.

Well I say stuff it.  Literally.

Rommel got it right.  Push Hard, Push Fast and Do Not Stop.  The Friction of War will not subside, but one can secure the offensive by not allowing opposition to organize.  You will suffer an occasional setback, but Forward is the direction one must continue to travel.  Even Pelosi understood this.  It was hard to recognize it on her face, but trust me, she got it.  (Cut her a break, it’s hard to recognize anything on her face.)

As far as I’m concerned there must continue to be a flurry of decisions and orders every day, Large and Small.  I don’t care about the press’ desire to have “more digestible” bites so they can try to convince you what a bad idea anything Trump wants to do is.  Frankly, nothing I’ve seen being pushed by the Trump Administration has fallen outside of topics we’ve argued for the last 30-years.  We all know where the other side stands.  It’s decidin’ time.

As far as those in the media who supposedly support all the things they’ve been supposedly supporting for the last 30-years… you should try a steaming hot cup of STFU.  We don’t need your help.  We’ve had enough of your “It’s just words” approach to destroying this country marginally slower than the Democrat Socialists.  We all recognize that if it doesn’t get done right damn now it isn’t going to get done.  We have seen this play… we have memorized the script.

You can’t get from here to there if you don’t actually intend to get from here to there… while you can still get back to there from here.

Just as Winston Groom’s character, our new president may not appear to know what he’s doing… but it’s only because he doesn’t recognize the limitations society has decided are appropriate for all of us to respect.  He is not of the Political Klass.  He has lived his entire life solving problems, not nurturing them for political benefit.  He is the Antidote with which we can break down the Established Leftist Disease permeating the Greatest Experiment in Self Government the World has ever known.

Bare in mind there is nothing new about the opposition Trump is facing.  There has never been a President who supported the Constitution in it’s entirety the Left liked.  Not one.  Even their arguments have become cliche.  It’s the same old crap… Racist, Bigot, Homophobe.  They should consider getting some new material.  But here we are.

At this point the only thing we should be hearing from every Republican, particularly Scott Brown, John McCain, Lindsey Graham etc. is “Run Forest, Run!”

I don’t care if they like him… to oppose him when he’s done nothing but support issues they have used to get elected year after year only illustrates their true Ideology.

A few Important Questions from last night’s Republican Debates…

Dateline:  December 15, 2015

Coming off of last night’s Republican Debate on CNN, I have a few questions…

Why was John Kasich playing Fruit Ninja the entire debate?

Was it pre-planned by CNN to insert the Kasich Karate Chop for comedic value?

For that matter, Why was John Kasich there… and was that alone for comedic value?

Speaking of Fruit Ninja’s, Did Lindsey Graham actually pee himself when lamenting the absence of George W. Bush?

If it was indeed important to make things ‘foolish’, isn’t ‘jeh…’ being on stage, and Trumps hair on anyone’s head, enough?

In terms of ridiculous, Do ‘jeh…’ and his brother George spend their off hours working on that stupid, shoulder shrugging, laugh?

At what point does Rand Paul just give up trying to explain to the other candidates what privacy means?

Is Marco Rubio really angry about the NSA not legally being able to Spy on American Citizens for over a whole week now?  Really?

Hearing myself type that out loud, now that the NSA has a ton of down time should we send them over to share their expertise with the Immigration and Naturalization Service to help teach those ‘rigorous’ folks about The Facebook?

Did Dr. Ben forget there was a debate coming up?

Did Trump utter something of substance?

Does Fiorina realize interrupting all the time makes one look like Karate Chop Kasich?  And, that’s not good…

Is Chris Christie doing his debate prep with the Bananno, Massino, Taddeo and Gotti families?

Is Ted Cruz the illegitimate son of Lyndon Baines Johnson… or not?

How did Barrett Baber make the Main Stage?

 

Inquiring minds want to know.


Let’s Talk About Trump Baby…

Let’s Talk About You and Me…
Let’s Talk About All the Good Things and the Bad Things that Can Be…
Let’s Talk About Trump..

Here’s the thing about Trump, he doesn’t care.

So let’s review the latest episodes of P.T. Barnum’s run for the Presidency 2.0. shall we?

He said John McCain was not a Hero. (Yes, I know he quickly thereafter said McCain WAS a Hero… Four times… but he still said it.)

One might wonder why McCain isn’t picking up the ball on defending his status.

Well, McCain was the one who picked the fight with Trump. Bet you didn’t know that part.

Trump had a rally in Phoenix and around 15,000 people showed up.

McCain called those people “Crazies”.

Trump was asked how he felt about a War Hero calling His Supporters, and His Policy Proposals, “Crazy”.

Trump returned the personal insult.

Now, Tuesday July 21st 2015, Trump is being accused of calling Lyndsey Graham and “Idiot”.  (He did.)  He also gave out Graham’s personal cell phone number.

Well, Lyndsey picked a fight with P.T. when he called him a “Jackass”.  Bet you didn’t know that part.

And… Trump returned the insult.

(For full disclosure, I happen to think both McCain and Graham are Ass Clowns.  And both of them are posters boys for what’s wrong with this country.  One is just a bit more heroic than the other.  As to which, you decide.)

Look, as far as I’m concerned Trump is enjoying attention right now because the GOP Establishment has Flooded the Field with Mediocre Candidates in Order to dilute the available Oxygen in the room for Conservatarians like Rand Paul and Ted Cruz of whom they are very, very afraid. The Establishment knows full well that in the off-chance you might actually listen to either of these men first hand, and not what is fed to you by the Leftist and Establishment Media, you might agree with them.  But their tactic to distract you from serious candidates has opened up a Huge Hole with a Comb Over.  So here comes Trump saying what the people want to hear and simply doesn’t care how the media feels about it.

There are two interesting aspects to Barnum’s circus.

First, the Liberal Media believe they are harming the GOP by playing Trumps words in endless loops while pouring derision upon him.

(I think this is having the exact opposite effect.)

Second, the Liberal Republicans believe Trump is Harming them, Liberal Establishment RINO’s not the GOP, by saying what is on everyone’s mind but the PC bullies have successfully been able to silence.

(They are correct.)

In the end Trump will run his course. But before that happens he will have moved the window back to where reasoned minds can debate. That is if the Leftist Media keep pushing the microphone into his face and the Establishment keeps reacting in fear.

Let’s hope so.

In the end, is Trump an A-Hole?  Yep.

But he’s a useful A-Hole.

However, he is not a Presidential A-Hole.


Flooding the Field

So Concerned is the Establishment Wing of the Republican Party that a TEA Party (Uphold the Constitution as it’s Written) Type may get the Nomination for 2016 that they are Preparing to Flood the Field with Primary Candidates.

This is being done in the Hopes of a Repeat of the 2008 Primary where the Open Republican Primaries along the Liberal Establishment Controlled East Coast will give us with the Establishment Nominee… Again.  Remember John McCain?  I do.

Could this Backfire?
When you’re playing this Game within your own Party… Yes, it could.

If there is no serious Challenger for the Democrat Nomination then the “Cross-Over Vote” could find its way to both Establishment and Libertarian/TEA Party Candidates.

If the Field is too Flooded the Establishment Vote will be Diluted allowing a TEA Party/Libertarian Candidate to move ahead.

In today’s Political Environment the Masses are slightly better educated and much more Cynical of Candidates and their practices talking points designed to lure their votes.

So, yes… it could be a gamble.

But Desperate Times call for Desperate Measures.  And the Establishment Republicans are Desperate.

So We’ll be witness to a putting all Your Eggs in an East Coast Basket once again.

(Originally Posted 032814… please file in the round ‘told you so’ basket.)


Occupy Washington

It’s become Clear that just when you think it’s OK to stop Spraying for them,

They Come Back….

But this time They’re wearing Brooks Brothers and Bow Ties.

No more Dirty, Parent’s basement Dwelling, Brand New Apple Using, Porn Surfing, Starbucks Swilling, Sign Misspelling, Female Molesting, Money Stealing, Crapping on Cop Car Twenty Something’s….

Nope.

Now They’re showing up in the Halls of Congress.

They’re Leaders are well dressed Individuals like John McCain, Harry Reid, Lindsey Graham, Nancy Pelosi, Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan.

They have forgone setting up a tent by the reflecting pond and opted for apartments in Georgetown, Arlington and Adams Morgan.

What they can’t get from the Starbucks they installed in the basement, They drink on F Street while leaving most of the Stealing, Misspelling and Molesting to their Interns.

The only Surprise is how long it took them to take over the Entire Hill.

And, that we have yet to see Video of Pelosi squatting over a Park Police Cruiser.

May be since They’re figuratively doing Exactly That to all of Us they don’t Feel the Need.

Some things are just too big to get on Film.

In the End, They are the Same Collective of “thinkers” we watched Pollute a Park in the Financial District.

Except the Damage isn’t limited to a single block.  It extends across the entire Nation.


Just Appear to Care

After Listening to Rep. Renee Ellmers’, a TEA Party candidate when she Won her Seat, go above and beyond to defend Amnesty for Illegal Aliens it caused me to think a little bit more about this issue and a much, much Larger One.

First, The push back Ellmers received should be a wake-up call for all those who courted, and received, TEA Party support when winning their seats.

Just because you ran and won as a TEA Party Candidate does Not Mean You Get a Pass when it comes to representing those who voted for you.  This is a NEW DAY in politics.  You should expect to be Held Accountable for your Actions once in office.  I realize this concept is completely foreign to the modern political class, but how did Nancy Pelosi put it?  Oh, right… “Embrace the Suck”.

It is long past due to put “Representative” back into Representative Republic.  And that Folks is Why the TEA Party is Hated by every Democrat and 80% of the Current Republican Party.

Second, I have tapped about this in the past.  Le Gran Mentira goes a long way to explain our Relationship with Mexico as well as Is Mexico Responsible for Anything?.

So I’ll leave that alone and you can read those by clicking on the links… if you care.

But there seems to be some Additional Confusion being suffered by those Republicans who are currently supporting Amnesty… or whatever name they are giving it so they can avoid calling it what it is.

It is no secret that the various Chambers of Commerce nationwide tend to represent Small and Medium Business’.  And, it should go without saying that they are logically “pro-business”.  At least one would Hope unless something has Changed.

So one might ask, Why when unemployment is Extremely High (gaming of the unemployment numbers can’t even provide a good rate at this point) would the various Chamber’s want to import 20 Million New Workers into the U.S and hand them Citizenship with all its commiserate rights?

Well here’s why…

These Business Owners live under the illusion that a large immigrant population here “legally” will be working for the low wages the illegal workers are working for now.

This leap of logic is beyond comprehension, but that’s what’s driving this push from the Chamber’s, and the Small and Medium Businesses, who support this push.

It’s Ignorance on a Profound level.

(Do you remember in grade school when you had mastered addition?  When 2+2=4 became easy?  When suddenly your teacher gave you problems that had more than one number in them… so 2+2+9=?… and you thought it was really hard?  Too many of us never quite got past that way of thinking and never learned to solve those problems. (It’s 12 by the way.  I got the problem from a Common Core math assignment.  But don’t worry, You get partial credit for just trying.)  Experience has taught me you don’t have to be smart to own a business… this may just be more proof.)

The only result of allowing a huge influx of what can only be considered citizens into the United States is an explosion of Union Members as well as new Leftist Voters.  That’s it.

Well, that’s not quite “it”.  There will also be an Explosion of new Welfare Recipients…

…which is why as a Libertarian Type I stray from the Doctrine and do Not support Open Borders.  The Poison Pill of Entitlement’s for those who do not work or Overburden Society by being rewarded for mortgaging other people’s productivity destroys the opportunity to throw the borders open to all who want to come and go at their leisure.  The fact our safety net has become a Day Care prevents us from exploring what would otherwise be a terrific chapter in our history.

Also take into account, We Already have illegals Voting in Elections across the U.S.  We already have illegals taking Welfare from this country.

Can we afford to elect More People who will simply accelerate this?  Can we afford to support legislation that promotes this because we were never good a math and it just sounds so nice?

Because that’s what we’re doing.

But all of this brings us to a much larger Issue.

If there is any doubt left in your mind that the Establishment Republicans and the Democrats are the same, makeaneffort at reason.

AmnestySupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

IRS TargetingSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

NSA Domestic SpyingSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Becoming clear it is also Supported by Democrats… so long as it doesn’t happen to them.  Right Diane Feinstein?

Obama CareSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.  (This Alone should serve as a warning.  Obama Care is the single most destructive Legislation we have seen in most of our lifetimes.  You can’t “Fix” Stupid.  It the ACA is Stupid.)

Spending us into OblivionSupported by Democrats.  Supported by Establishment Republicans.

Militarizing DHSSupported by Establishment Republicans.  Supported by Democrats.

Government Enforced Wage RatesSupported by Democrats.  Becoming clear they are also Supported by Establishment Republicans.

What should you take away from this?

Both Political Parties have become so accustomed needing only the Appearance of Caring in order to get Elected that all connection to our Founding Ideology has been severed.  Now the only philosophy which remains is Socialism… on all sides… or rather, just one side.

It’s time for the Political Revolution we are witnessing right before our eyes.

The fact we take it seriously is reflected in our holding people like Ryan and Ellmers’ feet to the fire.

The Waiting is Over.

It’s Happening Now.

Call it the TEA Party Revolution, call it the “We Can’t Take it Anymore! Revolution”, call it Whatever you Want, just…

Get on Board.

If you Really Care.


Libertarian Dissonance

Or, Who are We?

Over the last 72 hours I’ve heard a growing number of TEA Party Conservative Types trying to square their Libertarian views with what’s going on in Europe.

The dilemma seems to be the Libertarian Ideal of Non-intervention versus the United States’ promises which have been made through Treaties.

I confess… After, After, After being Anti-Socialist, I’m more Libertarian than anything else. Even so, I believe we must honor those commitments made through treaty. It’s True I’m not interested in being the world’s policeman, and I would work diligently to remove the United States from many of the commitments we have made decades past, but until that happens we must honor those we’ve made.

The reason I feel this way is we have nothing on the World stage if not our word.  And I guarantee there will be times we need those who have made agreements with us, the U.S., to honor Their promises.

So here we are… today… facing What it Is, not What we may Wish it to be.

The desire to not intervene is understandable…

Once upon a time, The United States stood for Liberty and Freedom of the Individual. It was a radical idea born out of the Enlightenment. This idea led to the formation of a Nation governed by Law instead of Men.  We used to want Other’s to have Individual Freedom and Liberty…

We used to have a Mission.  But we have wandered far from those ideals once at the forefront of our Foreign Policy and most importantly our Domestic Policy.

Because of that I can relate to those out there who believe we need to focus on our own home-grown problems at this point in time.

And,

Do I want to run around the world and commit Men and Material in defense of people I do not know, who apparently don’t like us?  No, I don’t.

I would prefer Countries in need of our help ask us directly… that would be the alternative to treaties as far as I’m concerned. You need us? Just Yell so Everyone can hear you.  If you decide to champion Freedom and Liberty of the Individual, we’ll help.  If not, you’re on your own.  Good Luck.

But those are not the circumstances at the moment.  We have Obligations, whether we like them or not.

But that really isn’t the issue in my opinion.

The Real Problem is what makes us any different from those we wish to oppose?

That should be the Primary Question facing all of us as we watch Russia “take back” what they believe to be theirs.

What do we stand for?

Why Should the Ukraine, or any other Nation for that matter, ask for our help?

What do we represent that is worth those in other Countries to risk dying for?

These are not rhetorical questions… I’m not sure I know anymore. And I don’t think they do either, which may be why they’re not asking for our help.

All of this aside, promoting a position of standing aside because of Libertarian principles, or because you might enjoy this current Administration looking like Fools (Which they most certainly do…) is to allow those who see the faults of Communism/Socialism to remain Slaves of it.

At the End of the Day I am Anti-Socialist first. All other things second. I am not interested in giving anything to Socialists, Ever. Ever.

I hope there will be more Thinking about where this is all headed and less Reveling in the Mess created by Progressive Buffoons.  Yes, they’re idiots who cause more problems than they solve… so vote accordingly.  Right now we have a problem and it has to do with the disappearance of American Exceptionalism.

(I will issue only one warning… there will be those Progressive-Liberal Republicans like McCain and Graham out on the networks hoping to win favor with people like me.   They will not. They are a distinction without a difference when it comes to Socialism. Their time, that should never have come, is past.)

The events we’ve seen unfolding over the last several years from Georgia to Syria to Cyprus to Ukraine… to Russian Destroyers in Cuba to North Korea getting the Nuke and the Means to send it, to China poking Japan and promising to “unify” Taiwan and on and on… all leads to it “not being okay”.

There is a War going on.

All is not Calm.

And if we don’t take a position the rest of the world hears and understands clearly, all will not be calm.

What Position will that be?

What will we Stand Tall for?

(As an Aside:  The Libertarians have a similar problem with Immigration.  Ideally we are Open Borders.  The Problem is the Poison Pill of the Entitlement State.  Too many of us fail to recognize a Trap even when it is made By Fools.  Which makes Us Fools.  That’s why we must Makeaneffort.)
