Ted Talks

On the heels of what was a fantastic speech, you would think Ted Cruz had just betrayed everything he believed in.

On the contrary.

Ted Cruz stood up for what he believed in.

Those of us who have supported Cruz for doing exactly that in the Senate… are left wondering what the rest of you thought would happen?

While it would have made terrific TV if Cruz had walked out and said, after releasing his speech earlier which he did, “I endorse Donald Trump for President!” and shut up for the ten minutes of applause, Ted is not about Great TV.

Trump is about great TV.

Which is why he made his unnecessary appearance at the end of Cruz’ speech.

Well… I’m not sure it was great TV. It might have been a bit more sage to ask Ted for a video, like the one Rubio provided, and then determine whether or not to run it.

Cruz stood up for the very principles the rest of us have been searching the words of Donald Trump for. Donald has yet to provide any of us the firm ideological foundation those of us who think about these things daily would like to see, feel, hear… something. Ted Has.

I will vote for Trump only because Clinton is a known entity… and Trump is not.

I will not be voting for Trump because of his well thought out admiration for Enlightenment Governing Theory and his steadfast resolve to promote the individual above a rightly, constitutionally, restricted government.

Want to argue with me? Please do. I invite it.

All this being said… the predictions from the Establishment Republican Mouthpiece Karl Rove that Ted’s career (an elected position I will remind you) is Over, are being tossed around as if Rove had the ability to fire him personally.

What you need to remember, because I know you already know this, is the Establishment RINO wing of the Republican Party HATES Cruz. They Hate Cruz more than they hate Trump. They view Trump as a buffoon, a clown, PT Barnum, a cartoon character who can be manipulated and ‘led’ to the ‘pragmatic’ point of view. They see him as a deal maker, in his own words, and nothing more. Ted on the other hand is an individual who does principled things like not endorse a guy who leveled personal attacks on him and his family when summoned to do so at the GOP Convention. Did you think the guy who filibustered for over 14 hours on the Senate Floor making his opposition clear to the Establishment Republicans that he would not bend a knee to them would do anything else.  You did?  Then you need to think more.

In the end, the Trump crew knew what Ted was going to say. They had the ability to stop it. Instead they permitted Ted the Prime Time spot, in my opinion, with the hopes of embarrassing him.

I’m not entirely sure that happened. But what I do know happened is they put him, I believe intentionally, in a box.  His decisions were limited to three options.  Refuse and look like Kasich… Endorse and be roundly criticized for compromising his values… or refuse to endorse and be roundly criticized for not supporting Trump.  In the end, I do not believe time will paint Cruz as having done anything but give a terrific speech. (Which it was. Don’t think so? Then you’re Trump blind… listen to it, better yet READ IT again. Or, find comfort in your intentional ignorance and remain the ass-hat you are.  It was a great speech.)

Cruz has laid his principles, and his bets, on the table…. brilliantly.

If Trump Wins and turns out to not be what everyone has fantasized about, because no one, not you, not me, not anyone on Earth has direct evidence of anything else… Cruz wins.

If Trump Loses and Hillary solidifies the complete Socialization of America… Cruz Wins.

If Trump Wins and turns out to be an Amazing Guardian of the Constitution as written, and rolls back the Socialist Schemes of the last 100-years… Cruz Wins, as do we all.

This is what happens when you have a firm footing in the Ideology of Personal Liberty and Freedom.

Ted Cruz has that.

The Establishment Hates him for it. (Because they are Leftists.)
Trump is mad at him for it. (Right now.)
The Democrats fear him for it. (Because they should.)

Can there be any better endorsement for one’s future in the politics of American Exceptionalism?

Of course not.

Ted Cruz was invited to the Convention to be Embarrassed.

He still showed up.

And, he delivered an Amazing Speech based on the principles that those demonizing him today would profess to be their own.

Are they?


Do you Teach your kids to Compromise with Evil?

“There are two sides to every issue. One side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.”

This is a quote from Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged.

And, it’s correct.

The Left has spent an inordinate amount of time and energy demonizing the concept of “seeing things in Black and White”. (Followed quickly by telling you that you shouldn’t talk about religion and politics during “polite” conversation.)  The reason for this is Leftist Progressives know their victories depend on compromise, ignorance, or both, because their demands viewed outright, and understood, would always be rejected.

Socialists realize you must be “nudged” in the direction they want you to go… that is, when they lack the ability to Force you in that direction.

As Rand has explained, seeing things in Black and White has always been equated with seeing things in terms of Good and Evil. If you cannot see things this way then you have not spent enough time thinking about your premises… in other words, the foundation of exactly what you believe.  This exercise alone will clarify your thinking.  You might find yourself being a Socialist… hopefully not, but at least you will get closer to the truth.

Once you have given the proper amount of thought to an issue you arrive at the Right decision and the Wrong decision. Everything “In the Middle” is simply a compromise with the Wrong Decision.

This is why “Bipartisanshitt” and Moderates, such as Establishment Republicans like Paul Ryan, John McCain and Karl Rove, who wail “why can’t we all get along” are truly the misguided among us.  The Governing Theories of Individual Freedom and Control over the Individual are mutually exclusive.  They are oil and water.  They do not mix.  They cannot be mixed.

Compromise is why we are Broke and Printing Money as fast as we can.

Compromise is why past Congresses have run up the bill well past our ability to pay.

Compromise is why we are fighting against the last piece of the Socialist puzzle which is Obama Care. 

Compromise is why Government is in every part of our lives. 

Compromise is why the Government is listening to our phone calls and reading our mail. 

Compromise is why we have lost our Right to Privacy… and by extension, our Freedom.

Either Embrace Evil… or Reject it.  But don’t Compromise with it.

Getting Along has Got us Here.

How do you “Take Trump Out”?

The Republican Establishment, read Leftist/Fascists with “R’s” behind their names, have a single mission tonight as demonstrated by Jeb!’s crying, and calling Trump names, over how Trump is ruining everything…

So what do they do?

1. Attack, Intimidate and Directly Threaten his ‘Big Money Donors’ to get them to withhold their donations?

2. Convince the 26% of the Republican Electorate that he’s terrible because he doesn’t support Illegal Immigration and Big Government?

3. Expose all the ‘skeletons’ from his past, and probably his present, that make him less than a role model?

Seriously…?

None of the above will have any effect on Trump’s current Popularity…  frankly, Trump could show up, smile, and say absolutely nothing, waiting silently until after the debate to say whatever he wants in front of the 50 microphones pushed in his face.  And, he would still lead in the polls.

This is why the Establishment HATES Him.

The only hope any of these candidates have is to sound More Reasonable and promote Policy which Trump Supporters agree with…

This is why the Establishment HATES Him.

You will be watching other serious candidates like Cruz, Paul and Carson. Guys who otherwise would have already been marginalized leaving only Jeb! on Stage…

This is why the Establishment REALLY, REALLY, HATES Him.

The only person who can “Take Trump Out” is Trump, and then… only when he’s ready.

And boy oh boy do the Rove RINO’s HATE Him for it.


Gruber Government

From the anals of Washington Elitist Government comes the latest in ‘How to get things done when the American Public is just too Stupid to understand‘.

This is why Cynicism is the Only, Constant and Always method to view those we elect… especially those we vote for.

Republican Leftist Paul Ryan has joined Democrat Leftist Progressive Nancy Pelosi in the Jonathan Gruber School of Governing with his latest demand that you will only be allowed to see what’s in the Obamatrade Act after your representatives Pass it.

I don’t believe you need to be reminded what a debacle Obamacare is… and getting worse. So I won’t.

Now we’re told that we are again too stupid to be allowed to see what’s in a sweeping, certainly not limited to what we would think is “trade”, Trade Act before we are all subject to it.

From what small snippets have been leaked, and adding together soundbites from the three people who have at least gone down to the Capital Dungeon to ‘read’ it, there is enough for everyone to hate. The Washington Elites would tell you “That’s how the sausage is made, and it represents a ‘Good Compromise‘.” I would offer it is also how fecal matter is made and represents the very same… just like Obamacare.

So we are told by a supposed “Conservative” that we must pass it to see what’s in it.

Clearly the Democrats who oppose it are not interested in ‘passing it to see what’s in it’… primarily because they are not at all sure they will hold the Presidency in the next term, and are not interested in the profound power which will be moved from the Legislative Branch to the Executive Branch.

And the few “Constitutional Originalists” we have left in the Conservative Movement (read ‘non-leftist’) who are still acting that way, oppose it because it will amount to several anti-capitalist results.

First, there can be little doubt that our allies in Europe have prolonged the Doom of Greece, and the Drowning of the EU, in the hopes that something in the deal Bails out their Socialist Union Scheme which many of us said would fail. We knew this back in the Nineties because people and nations lie… and always will… nothing is new under the sun. (Note: Jeb Bush is meeting with European leaders who are looking for reassurance should he become president that he would not interfere with this new, expected to be shoved down the throats of the American People, EU Bail Out/Trade Act.)

We must begin asking ourselves why American Tax Dollars should continue to go to bailing out Failed Socialist Schemes and the long-dead Socialist ideology those schemes are built upon. Reinforcing Oppression, Death and Destruction should not be a committment made by The United States of America. The Western Socialist Democracies need to be allowed Fail on their own so they will modify their behavior. They have survived at the teat of American Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists) for well over 100-years. The time is Now to Stop Enabling Elitist Control and Class Stasis of Fascist/Socialist A-Holes.  But it starts at home…

Second, there is little doubt that this ‘Trade’ bill will magically include Immigration Powers not before held by the Executive Branch. Just as the Commerce Clause has over time been perverted to mean just about anything, and everything, depending on what some person in power wanted it to mean…
Now it will be ‘Trade’. We have mechanisms in place to deal with immigration, but the survival of the Leftist Socialist-Fascist movement in this country depends on new government dependants. Whether these dependants are from other countries, or home-grown, doesn’t matter to the Socialists. As long as they get to vote… and vote for their redistributed ‘paycheck’, Liberalism survives.

Third, this Act will certainly create the very same type of Socialist Symbiosis represented by the European Union and carry with it the very same ‘certain to fail’ model. Just like Obamacare destroying the finest Medical system on the planet, why do we do this to ourselves? The answer is simple. The Socialists believe that it’s not the failure of their ideas. Rather, it’s that their ideas have never been allowed to catch up to the wild success of Self Determination and Free-Market Capitalism (in what feeble form it exists). They continue to fully subscribe to centralized control while anointing themselves Philosopher Kings. It truly is a Fatal Conceit.

Sure… if you’re Leftist Progressive you might think this is super cool. But once you think past the Trees and see the Forest (Something most Liberals are intentionally never taught to do) you clearly see that these powers are assigned to the Executive Branch, not just Liberal leftist Socialist progressives when they hold the Executive Branch.  Thus the push back from the Leftists… and frankly, a main reason the Leftist Light Republicans support it.

The United States is now run by those who seek to protect Government from us, not protect us from Government.

Are we going to allow Jonathan Gruber to be correct when he says “The American People are too Stupid to know what’s going on.”?

We proved him right not long ago with Obamacare…

So…

Probably.


Cruz believes in God!?

If you’ve been paying attention over the last 48-hours you have certainly heard that Ted Cruz is Evil for a Major Reason.

Senator Cruz believes in God.

And as a result, Mr. Cruz believes that the Creator endowed all of us with Inalienable Rights. In other words, our rights come from our Creator… not Men.

Well there you go.

Those who support the “educated” idea that our rights come from Man cannot allow such apostacy to be uttered without laser-focused derision being poured upon it.

Clearly, to them, Ted Cruz is an idiot because of such a stupid idea.

Well…

I too believe in unalienable rights being bestowed upon us by our Creator…

However, I do not believe one needs to believe in God to accept this as the Enlightened Ideological premise protecting all of us from Tyranny, Oppression and Slavery.

I have good company. Namely the Founding Fathers.

The Founders were of varied Religious beliefs.  Indeed, primarily Judeo-Christian.  But they have divisions even within those ranks.  The language chosen for the Founding Documents was crafted with extreme intent.  They knew full well that Locke’s idea of Natural Law is justified by a belief in a Creator, Nature or for that matter The Universe.  The simple fact a Human Individual exists is all it takes.  And, The United States was going to be the First… and sadly after 250-years still the only, country on Earth to overtly build a society based on this Revolutionary Enlightenment Philosophy.  That is why America is Exceptional.

To put it simply, this idea that all of us have certain inalienable rights just because We Exist is why the United States Stands Alone.

It is no surprise that there are those who scoff at such an idea.

Specifically, because this idea stands in the way of Force. It obstructs those who wish to control us… persuade us… nudge us… into the choices they have decided are, well, ‘best’ for us. It prevents them from Forcing the Few to Sacrifice to the Many. It is the enemy of Social Democracy… otherwise known as Mob Rule.

The Remarkable Idea that being born gives one rights that are not ‘allowed’ by edict from a benevolent ruler… or group… is a profound irritant to those who seek Power over You.

It is why many of us out here claim, without hesitation, that many of our elected politicians Hate the very Constitution they have sworn to protect.  Because they do.

How do I know?

The brilliance of the men who designed this country left us with a governing structure that possessed the mechanics to change it if needed…  Those who Hate the Revolutionary Statement embedded in the Founding Documents are not interested in this mechanism because it necessarily alerts you to what They want to do.

And if there were ever an Axiom… Those that want to do Bad things To You can Never let you Know they Want to do Bad things To You.

You wouldn’t like that.  (Which is also why the Founders made “The Right to Bear Arms” second only to “The Right to Free Speech”.)

All of this will help you identify those people with whom you should disagree.  At a minimum, hold suspect.

Be Warned!  These people exist on Both Sides of ‘the aisle’.

I would offer All Democrats (As their Governing Philosophy is built upon the Foundation of Marxism) as well as a Majority of Republicans (As many of them subscribe to flavors of Marxist Socialism but lie to you to get elected.).  This doesn’t even address those outside of the aisle such as the Independents, Greens, Socialists, Communists and all other segments of political spice.

In the End, I expect resistance, and the type of derision I mention above, to come from ‘all sides’ when it comes to men like Republican Ted Cruz.  I suggest you’ll see such rhetoric coming from Democrats AND Republicans when Republican Rand Paul announces.  (Paul subscribes to the same foundation of Individual Rights.)

They are men of Principle.

They are not men of “getting along” or “working together” when it runs counter to the Original Intent of Individual Freedom and Liberty and Fiscal Responsibility.

Don’t fall into this trap.

Don’t discount a person who holds your Individuality as sacred because they do, or do not, believe.

While it doesn’t hurt, you don’t need to believe in God to understand the Wisdom in protecting the Individual.

Dust off your Thomas Payne (Age of Reason) and tell me I’m wrong.


Who will I be Voting for…?

A common question within my extremely small circle of friends. (Can you make a circle if you’re the only one in it? Anyway…)

I have long-held, and will continue to allow, that Socialists, Dictators and Thugs will lead me to the Right Person to vote for The Presidency of the United States.

It’s a simple Axiom.

Whoever Progressive Liberals, and their press, Hate the Most… is going to get a strong First, Second and Third look from me. Odds are they will also get my vote.

Never my Trust… But almost certainly my Vote.

Let’s see how it works this cycle…

Cruz announces tomorrow.


This is a Huge IRS story from Breitbart!

Some of you will dismiss this as ‘politics as usual’…
But it is ‘politics as usual’ we would never see if it were not for the internet.
We are in very New, very Interesting times.

Eric Holders Office Calls Darrell Issa’s office by Mistake…
And asked them to receive leaked documents, then Spin them in a favorable light for Democrats.
One Painful Problem.
Darrell Issa is a Republican in Charge of Investigating and Oversight.
In this Case the IRS Targeting Political Enemies.

I predict Mainstream Media will give this little if any attention because it’s ‘Their Guys’ doing it.  Could you imagine what the response would be if the Bush, or any supposedly non-Leftist, Administration did such a thing?  I can.

This is Big.

Big, Big, Big…

And it’s Al Gore’s fault for inventing this greatest miracle since the Guttenberg Press.

Let there be light!
