Jeb Bush Surrenders to the French…

After Jeb accurately cited the French Socialist work week of 3-days, but employed it as an insult directed at Marco Rubio, the French were quick to demand an Apology.

Without considering the ramifications, Jeb Surrendered to the French and publicly Apologized for his remark.

It was then that French Officials demanded yet another, Immediate, Apology for Jeb usurping their traditional place in the world and what they consider to be an extremely important part of the French Identity.

While we are waiting to see how the Jeb Campaign responds, makeaneffort contacted several retired Diplomats for comment but none would speak on the record. However, the consensus was Jeb’s total lack of awareness when it comes to one of the many French sensitivities could lead to an International Incident. They also believe it would be worth remembering the French invented Offense originally as a way to pass time.  All three agreed if Mr. Bush apologizes yet again there could be no end in sight for this controversy.

Two of the Diplomats we spoke with also offered for consideration the wisdom of electing a President of The United States who Surrenders to the French.  The third declined to comment on the fact Jeb was being considered in any way at all before or after this incident.

We will update this post as this story develops.


No Right of Return

On this day, President Obama destroyed the hopes of Cuban Exiles World Over to return to their beloved Cuba and reclaim the Property, and Land, which is rightfully theirs.

All of those who escaped the Murderous Castro Regime seeking refuge in what was once the freest Country on Earth…

Must now abandon all promise they would be able to reclaim what is rightfully theirs.

This has happened because the President of the United States finds Communal ground with Fidel Castro, His Brother and Socialist Ideology.

Our President has intentionally handed legitimacy to these Socialist Serial Killers.

Nothing Good can come of this.

Once the Soviets find their feet again… which we are allowing them to do as of this typing, Their ‘Aircraft Carrier’ in the Gulf of Mexico will be back up and running.  There is simply far too much power associated with having America to Blame for every ill.

But once again, the Liberal Progressives in the Country will prop up Socialist Failure under the perpetually misguided belief a different outcome will prevail.

History is determined to teach the opposite lesson.

Doubt me?

Name a single Free-Market Capitalist Economy with a Constitutionally Limited Government preserving the Natural Right of Personal Freedom, Liberty and Property Ownership resulting from Subsidizing Socialism?

I’ll wait…


A New Professional Sports Strategy

Only Play the Games you Know you can Win!

Brilliant!

Take a Moment and Imagine how that would play out in Major League Baseball…

The NFL…

The NBA…

College Sports…

High School…

Your local Little League…

“Just Concede!”

Of course we all remember Churchill’s Famous Quote:  “Give Up, Give Up, Give Up.”

Such is the stated “Strategy” held by The Progressive Wing of the Republican Party.

This is why Leftists like Nancy Pelosi long for “the return of the Republican Party of old”…

Well no kidding. I’m sure that is a sentiment shared by the Entire Democrat Party and 80% of their “Loyal Opposition” on the Hill.

What is so ridiculous about Current Republicans such as McCain along with those who have friendships with them like Sowell and Charles Kesler is the absolute failure to comprehend Communication of Ideas.  What I mean by this is if you are telling me that you do not, in fact, agree with the Leftists then you should be the First in line at Every Given Opportunity to Communicate those differences in Ideology.  Yet your Strategy is to only fight the battles you know you can win.

I would offer that even should you lose a Battle you have gained the opportunity to Communicate Freedom and Liberty of the Individual… and maybe, just maybe a person who thought they stood in strong opposition to you might change their mind come the NEXT BATTLE.  By not fighting for Freedom and Liberty for that person who thinks you’re terrible you do nothing but reinforce whatever fantasy they foster.

You also allow the Socialists to script the narrative.

With that in mind, how much more Harmful can a Strategy be?

I have stated before; With friends like McCain who needs Enemies?  And I mean it.

The unfortunate aspect of this “Path to Victory” is it permeates the Republican Party.  The only upside are the lines are being drawn between those who subscribe to it and those who do not… which allows those of us out here paying attention to see clearly who has the heart to fight for us and who simply spew platitudes when it safe to do so.

The idea that we must forfeit fighting for some of what’s Right and Just is stupid and self-defeating.  You would think it would be simple for the Lindsey Graham’s of the world to look at where we are as a country.  It took 50-years of their “Strategy” to get us here.

I’m with Cruz on this.  As far as I’m concerned one must be either completely unaware of what this Country was Founded on, or in agreement with those on the Left to believe such a Strategy has any merit.  That is the dividing line for me.

In the end,

I’ve read Sun Tzu, and no where in that text do I find Occasionally Surrendering as a viable way to win anything.  This War is about Communicating!  And, Not Fighting is Not Communicating.  You don’t always have to “Win”.  But you’ll certainly not get the attention of the Voters by throwing your hands up in the air.

I already know what Rommel would say…

Let me go blow the dust off of Clausewitz and flip through him just in case I missed something.

(I think I’ll approach Nike and see what they think about “Just Concede” being their new slogan.  I could order up some shirts for the Senator’s Annual Softball Game.)


Better than the Alternatives

“Doing Nothing is Unacceptable.” – Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) regarding Immigration Reform Bill

Well… apparently not.

Demonstrably, “living in the shadows” here in the United States is better than the alternatives for those who choose to do it.

“Doing nothing” is exactly the right thing to do until the borders are secure. In other words… Border Security must be sole and separate from any other legislation, and must be accomplished to everyone’s satisfaction prior to initiating possible alternatives for individuals who have chosen to “live in the shadows”.

So, Doing Nothing is quite acceptable, Senator.

Particularly when the alternative requires us to yet again trust the government to perform on the promises they make.  And particularly if “Doing Something” must contain any form of legitimization for those who broke the law in coming here… even when it was the best choice they felt they had.

Where else in the World would this be tolerated?

Mexico?  Switzerland?  Norway?  If you think so, you should check out their immigration policies and get back to us.

So…

First the Tall Fence… not the promise of one.

Then, and only then, the Wide Gate.

Words are cheap, and our politicians continuously remind us of that while hoping we forget.

Right now the folks living in the shadows seem to think it’s pretty OK… or they would vote with their feet and return to their respective countries.


Flushing Them Out…

Finally an issue that separates the Men from the Elitists.

While it is a safe rule to vote against the candidate with the most Dictator endorsements… which is always the Democrat.

It is a breath of Fresh Air to have an Issue like the NSA’s Spying on Innocent American Citizens to flush out the Progressives in the Republican Party.

Get ready for the Parade of Progressive Republicans leading the charge to prosecute the Whistle-Blower and defend the NSA’s Domestic Surveillance program.

So Far we Have Lindsey Graham, Eric Cantor and Peter King.

Update 061112: John Boehner

Let it burn.

So I’ve been relatively quiet the last several weeks. I have spent most of my time reading.

A little Mao, a little Card, a little Smith and little Goldberg… along with every article I can find on this latest loss to the Left.

It’s always interesting to hear those I respect, and many I don’t, suffer the same attempt to understand why the United States chose the Socialist… once again. Luckily for me, these folks have done so in type…

From what I have gleaned there are three basic themes:

1. Republicans do not, or are incapable of, running a candidate with a solid foundation of Free-market principles (aka Capitalist) who is willing to espouse them in a cogent concise manner. Over, and over, and over.

2. The Republicans fall in line every time the Socialists say “We need civility, cooperation and bipartisanship”… which actually means “help us make these horrible Socialist ideas work… or at least let us blame YOU when they predictably don’t”.

3. The country is divided between those who make and those who take… and the takers voted. (I know this is offensive… particularly to the “takers”, which is why I’m convinced it is truth. Nobody is ever offended by ridiculous assertions… because they’re ridiculous.  Clowns are funny, not offensive.)

These three points are the wheat, separated from the chafe. These are what survives poor logic, and the socialist republican thought, we have been subject to for decades.

So what are the “solutions” to this problem?

First…

Let it burn.

We have an opportunity to allow Socialism to Fail Epically. The “Fiscal Cliff” is a Socialist wet dream. And, in the words of Barack Obama, elections have consequences… well, I agree.

While I do not support a stance of “walking away” from the issue, I do support adopting a tactic of the left. A tactic so common that the American people have come to accept it. A tactic so old that Machiavelli shared it with his Prince.

Tell everyone, repeatedly, that you want to help “solve” this problem. Let everyone know how dangerous it is and that you agree with the Democrats regarding the election results… Tell every listening ear that you’ll welcome whatever solutions the Democrats and Barack Obama send over… then do nothing.  Never once acknowledge any proposals sent up for consideration…

In fact… ignore any “solutions” that might be sent over no matter how ridiculous. Don’t laugh at them, don’t critique how stupid they may be, don’t acknowledge them at all. Just stay with the above plea and offer of immediate cooperation and bipartisanship when the Democrats come to the table.

Then stay quiet. In other words, if you’re not talking about how cooperative you’re going to be and busy being “civil” while doing nothing… you should have a steaming hot cup of Shut the F*ck Up in your hand sipping away.

“But Mike… but Mike… that means we go over the Fiscal Cliff! Aghhhhh…”

Yep. It’s time for some pain. It’s time for the takers to see what Socialism is all about in a way that cannot be ignored, spun or placed at the feet of Capitalists.

“But Mike… The press will blame the Republicans!”

Yep. But not the few who openly stand for Free Market Capitalism. And this will be the opportunity for them to rise up and shine.

Second…

Genuinely pay attention to the foundations of the candidates you support.  (The ability to recognize these values will require YOU to understand them first.  So, get to work.)

In other words, not what they say… talk is cheap… but what they do… all the time.

If the Great Experiment is to succeed, we must… must, with no exceptions… seek out and elect those whose beliefs are founded in Free-market Capitalism and Individual Liberty.  They must believe it.  They must practise it.  They must understand what limited government means and how that benefits every citizen in the U.S., not just all the little groups the Left wants, needs, us to identify with.

It is the single “Big Idea”.  It is a unifying message.  It is the “Big Tent” under which all of us can get underneath if we choose to.  It is exactly what the Socialists fear… and right now they have no fear, evidently for good reason.

It will be the platform our current and aspiring leaders must run on during the mid-terms. It will be the platform all of us must insist on during the primaries for 2016. The rest of the republicans I don’t care about… aside from removing them from office and replacing them with Capitalists.

Third…

Call it what it is.

Call this crap Socialism.  Why are we 16 Trillion dollars in debt and headed for Fiscal Oblivion?  Socialism.  Why are our kids failing in school? Socialism.  Why are there no jobs out there? Socialism.  Why did the housing market crash?  Socialism.  Why do the banks control everything?  Socialism.  Why are our taxes going up rather than our government stopping the out of control spending?  Socialism.  Why does everything cost more?  Socialism.  Who wants to get ahold of our savings and 401k’s?  Socialists.  Who wants to nationalize more companies forcing taxpayers to support the Unions?  Socialists.  Who are the Socialists responsible for all of this?  Name them… from both parties.  Often, and as loud as possible.

This may sound “too simple”.

I would offer that if it is too simple why hasn’t it been done since Reagan?

The Left chastises those who “still live in the era of Reagan.”  They think Reagan is idolized as Reagan the man… Well I happen to idolize Reagan, not as “the man” but rather as the guy who stood for what this country was founded on.  If you give me someone else who truly believes in those same things and shows no fear, ever, in espousing them and then actually doing them once in office I will idolize them too.

So there you have it.  The Political Consultant class will call this naive… fine.  I expect nothing less because the above “Big Idea” doesn’t require their input… thus will not generate foolish amounts of money headed their way.

I will offer only a single defense.

“Attention Political Consultants… I’ve read all your stuff… every bit of it.  I’ve watched all your brilliance closely, campaign after campaign.  The only winners, or at least those who profit, at the end of the day are you.  I know Socialism… deeply.  You also profess to as well, yet you preach “reaching out” to disparate groups, the same groups created for the purposes of the Left you supposedly oppose.  You promote Bipartisanship and non-offensive messaging for fear of offending the sensibilities of our home-grown Communists…  In your model, “Getting something done” is more important than “Getting only the right things done and nothing else”.  Both Lenin and Alinsky agree, a compromise is a win for the Left… and you are part of the problem.  You are why we are here.
