The Dems are terrified of Donald Trump

How scared are they? The Dems are terrified of Donald Trump. So much that the President will not be functioning as the leader of the Country but will act as a fundraiser and cheerleader for the Clinton Campaign for the entire month of October. This is offensive on several levels. First, I don’t think that getting Hillary Clinton elected is a duty of the President. Second, he should be carrying out the duties of his office. Three, how much more will that cost the taxpayers? Will we get reimbursed from the Clinton folks for the costs of his travel and protection? And fourth, does this give a green light to terrorists?

Anyone who doesn’t believe Clinton will continue the Obama agenda needs only to see this latest stunt to realize that Obama is “all in” on the Clinton election. Why? Because he knows beyond the shadow of a doubt that Clinton will provide us another 4 (or God forbid 8) years of Obama’s economy killing, debt creating, racist, ISIS empowering, middle class killing policies.

I hope the folks who criticized Marco Rubio for being AWOL on the job will apply the same judgement to Obama.

It’s time to yank Tesla’s direct line to the U.S. treasury

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Should you spot a Tesla electric car on the road, see if the driver is smiling.  He should be smiling at you, for contributing $7500 to the purchase price of his luxury automobile.

That’s because every Tesla Model S or X —  which range in price from $66,000 to $150,000 — qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit.  And many states offer additional incentives for buying electric vehicles.

It’s time for taxpayers to stop subsidizing status symbols for the wealthy.

Navy to Name Ship after ‘Gay’ Child Molester

Attention on the poop deck. It seems our “first gay president” intends to “milk,” with pride, his fetish for all things “LGBT” in the closing months (mercifully) of his catastrophic presidency. USNI News (U.S. Naval Institute) reports that the Obama Navy presumes to ram, without consent, the most reprehensible aspects of the extremist homosexual political agenda down the throats of a divided American public.

“The Navy is set to name a ship after the gay rights icon and San Francisco politician Harvey Milk, according to a congressional notification obtained by USNI News.

Conservative Congressman Slammed Lawless Gun Control Sit-In

I have great respect for Congressman Tom McClintock (R-El Dorado Hills)

He is a gold star representative in a sea of dirt, fluff, and cowardice.

Despite what people say about California, the land of fruits and nuts, we have good people still fighting for our rights, and for what is right.

Trump Trump? No way!

When Donald Trump commented on the DNC WikiLeaks scandal, many on the left, including former CIA chief and secretary of defense Leon Panetta, scorched him for his sarcastic remark that perhaps Putin can tell us what was in the thirty thousand emails labeled personal, that Hillary Clinton withheld and never turned over to investigating entities, calling him a traitor and security risk. It is almost laughable if not pathetic to listen to this rhetoric. Personally, I found Donald Trump’s remark rather amusing; but what do I know? I’m a simple man, not considered an expert like the ones who over-think everything and intentionally misinterpret everything, to discredit those who they oppose.

As Bernie Goldberg put it on the July 28th Factor broadcast, some body is a liar. If those emails contained only things about yoga sessions and wedding plans, how could they be threatening to our national security? If this is true, how could that make Trump a traitor and security risk, unless there is something in the contents of those emails making it so? Which is it?

DNC: Emanating a Putrid Smell Across America

At my local gym using an aerobic machine, I saw on TV Cecile Richards, president of Planned Parenthood, speaking at the DNC. Seeing this despicable, cold, calculating, and evil woman at the podium defined the Democrat party as the source of the putrid smell spreading across our country. The DNC emanated the foul odor of America’s moral decline. Richards is running a national dead-baby-body-parts chop shop. And yet, this vile woman had the audacity to deceptively portray herself as an advocate for women and Trump as anti-woman.

After the release of numerous undercover videos exposing the horrors and illegality happening behind the walls of Planned Parenthood, why on earth would the Democrats gift the abortion factory’s president with hero status at their national convention?

The Failed Coup Attempt in Turkey: A Boost for Iran-Turkey Relations

At first the attempted coup in Turkey aroused much concern in Iran, and it is therefore no coincidence that Tehran was the first to express support for Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a few hours after the events began. The attempted coup in Turkey confronted Iran with the alarming prospect of a violent conflict in a large, important neighboring country; a possible downfall of an Islamic regime, even a Sunni one, was regarded by Tehran as a dangerous precedent. The Iranian regime views the possibility of an internal uprising with growing anxiety, due primarily to consternation over the public protests in Iran in June 2009 against what was popularly perceived as the rigging of the presidential elections. The varied consequences of the unsuccessful coup in Turkey can be added to a long list of changes in the region in recent years that have future ramifications as well. The effects of the coup are expected to be significant for the array of forces in the regional arena, especially the balance of power between the Sunni alliance that Saudi Arabia is trying to form and the Shiite alliance led by Iran.

At first the attempted coup in Turkey aroused much concern in Iran, and it is therefore no coincidence that Tehran sided with Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan a few hours after the events began and was the first to express support for him.

Supporting Trump over Clinton is a no-brainer

—First published with CNBC
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump delivers a speech during the evening session on the fourth day of the Republican National Convention on July 21, 2016 at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland, Ohio.

As the CEO of a 114-year-old manufacturing company, supporting Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton for president is a no-brainer — as it should be for any business owner or job creator.

Charlotte Pipe and Foundry Company is one of the country’s largest producers of cast iron and plastic pipe and fittings. We are a fifth generation family-owned and operated manufacturer headquartered in Charlotte, NC, with seven plant locations across the United States. We are in an energy-intensive, trade-sensitive sector of our economy and, despite the worst recession in 2008 since the Great Depression, we have not had a layoff in more than three decades at our Plastics Division and since 1957 in our Foundry Division.

If only that shrieking Hillary speech had anything to do with reality

Once she got past the platitudes, Hillary Clinton spun quite a tale on Thursday night about the realities of modern-day America. She’s not as skillful a liar as her husband, but I suppose anyone interested in lying would do so pretty confidently if they were sure they would not get called out for the lies.

Here are just a few examples of how Hillary’s words had nothing to do with reality:

She claimed Obama has unleashed a massive job-creation movement in America. No, he hasn’t. For one thing, 15 million private-sector jobs over eight years is not a good record. It represents less than what normal population growth requires just to stay even. But the number is bogus anyway because it doesn’t account for the jobs that were lost.

Democrats and renewable energy

Being a Canadian perhaps I shouldn’t be saying anything, but I have been paying attention to the U.S. Presidential election and I find that Americans have some serious thinking to do.  I’ve listened to both the Republican and the Democratic representatives and it’s curious that on one hand one candidate says that the U.S., in its quest for protection, should consider restricting the rest of the world from some of the benefits of dealing with the U.S.  On the other hand, the other candidate says that they should put the U.S. so far in debt that it will be just like California, just to implement their mandate of environment, post-secondary education, etc., etc., etc.

On July 28, at the Democratic convention the candidate, in her speech, spoke of “renewable energy” and all of the employment that would be created if the U.S. moved forward with this initiative.  All I can say is wake up America and take a look to the North, specifically Ontario.

The bipolar brain is miswired

In the year following the death of Rebecca Riley, Newsweek magazine, which had already published not one but two laudatory cover stories on Prozac as well as a puff piece on childhood depression, weighed in with yet another cover story, “Growing up bipolar: Max’s world,” which told the story of Max Blake, a boy who suffered from temper tantrums, attacking teachers and playmates without warning, biting and kicking and spitting at them. When Max reached the age of two, his parents took him to the Tufts-New England Medical Center, the same institution where Rebecca Riley was diagnosed and treated for bipolar disorder. Not surprisingly, Max also was diagnosed as bipolar by the doctors, who prescribed Depakote, and then Zyprexa, then another medication and then another. By the time Max was ten years old his doctors had prescribed a total of thirty-eight different psychotropic drugs. At the age of twenty-eight months he was kicked out of day care. Later he was kicked out of the special-needs classes at the local public school and sent to a special school for troubled children. He suffered rages, weight gain, and tics, blinking his eyes, clearing his throat and pulling at his clothes like he wanted to get out of his skin. He accused his mother of poisoning him; the article describes the boy’s accusations as “delusional and paranoid.”

“The bipolar brain is miswired,” the article informs us, without adducing a shred of evidence for this assertion. The article goes on to admit there are no studies on the long-term effects of psychotropic medications on children, then tells us “Yet untreated bipolar disorder can be disastrous; 10 percent of sufferers go on to commit suicide,” begging the question of how many of those 10% were “untreated” (i.e., undrugged). Any of them? Then we are told “Parents must choose between two wrenching options: treat their children and risk a bad outcome, or don’t treat and risk a worse one.” But since the author has already told us that there are no long-term studies on the effects of medication on these children, that second clause is a preposterous non-sequitur. We don’t have any reason to believe that drugging these children decreases the likelihood of a bad outcome.

Destructive forest fires are due to—WHAT?

First the Obama EPA came for coal mines, coal-fired power plants, miners, workers, investors, and all who depend on reliable, affordable electricity. Then the EPA, Bureau of Land Management, Forest Service and other agencies came after oil and gas drilling and fracking, and the workers, industries and families that need petroleum. They’re also targeting farming, ranching, airlines and manufacturing.

It’s all to stop “dangerous manmade climate change,” rising seas, warmer and colder weather, wetter and drier seasons, and other “unprecedented” calamities. Now the Feds want us to believe worsening forest fires threaten communities, wildlife and wildlife habitats because we burn fossil-fuels.

Hungary Blasts EU with Common Sense on Muslim Migration

Raymond Ibrahim

In “an astonishingly savage tirade”—to quote from the UK’s Express—Hungary’s Prime Minister Victor Orban recently tore into the European Union “over migration and taunted Angela Merkel for failing to protect German people from Islamist terror.”

(Click here to learn why central and eastern European nations, Hungary chief among them, are wary of Islam.)

In the course of his speech, Orban made two important points that I habitually make, and which explain the true reasons behind the unprecedented rise of terrorism in EU nations:

  1. Islam’s Rule of Numbers;
  2. Western enablement of Islam.

“The Republican Party Platform: Finally, Pushback”

I recall a while back reading a statement attributed to John Boehner, the former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives. He was reported to have said that nobody reads the party platform. That may have been the case in the past, but if this one is ignored, there will be consequences to pay (2016 Republican National Platform).

After many disgusting years of Republican establishment types telling the American people one thing in its platform promises and proceeding to do other things, contrary to the people’s will, the 2016 platform has finally acknowledged the concerns of many conservatives.

WAKE UP MICHELLE

At the DNC, First Lady Michelle Obama said, in reference to the White House : “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.”

Bill O’Reilly commented that the slaves “were well-fed and had decent lodgings provided by the government.”

O’Reilly received much criticism for saying the slaves were treated well. So what?  Maybe they were maybe they weren’t.  This does not mean that slavery was a noble institution.  It still stinks.

The Press and the Dems Covering Up Trump’s Being for and Not against Peace-Loving Muslims

If there has been a more significant cover-up recently than Hillary’s emails and the Democratic National Committee’s emails revealing the bigotry of many leading Democrats, it is the cover-up of the fact that Donald J. Trump has demonstrated he is not only not anti-Muslim, and not only pro-peaceful Muslim, but more pro-peaceful Muslim than all the leading leftists, liberals, and Democrats.

Donald Trump never said he was opposed to all Muslims; to the contrary, he made it clear from the outset of his presidential campaign that he was opposed only to those Muslims intent on killing all “infidels” (meaning all non-Muslims). Therefore, he originally proposed a temporary ban on Muslims entering the country until America figures out how to vet incoming Muslims in a way that would prevent the anti-non-Muslim Muslims from entering the country. A person who applies a tourniquet to a person wounded in an extremity in order to save the person’s life is not anti that person; rather, the person who applies the tourniquet to such a wounded person is his greatest benefactor.

Hillary – There are No Jobs for the Dead!

Anyone who can still remember the Reagan years in America, or before that, is reeling in stark incredulity that someone like Hillary Clinton has actually made an acceptance speech for the DNC’s nomination for President of the United States.

The Democratic Party has become solid liberal for many years and some are saying it has become the party for pure evil.

If you have any doubts about who exactly Hillary is, it would serve you well to hurry to the closest theatre which is showing Dinesh D’Souza’s, “Hillary’s America.” It is presently the highest grossing documentary of 2016.

Rebecca Riley

The short, unhappy life of Rebecca Riley is a parable for our times. Her diagnosis with bipolar disorder at the age of 28 months was followed by a downward spiral which parents, doctors, nurses, teachers, social workers, and everybody else around her seemed powerless to halt.

Born into a troubled family, Rebecca had the deck stacked against her from the beginning. Rebecca’s father had been banned from living with his family in public housing after Carolyn’s thirteen-year-old daughter from a previous marriage had lodged a complaint against him for sexual assault (that daughter had been given up for adoption and was no longer living with her biological mother at the time of the alleged assault). Carolyn Riley once obtained a restraining order against her husband after claiming he grabbed their son by the neck and banged his head against the back window of a pickup truck (Michael denied the accusation and the restraining order was allowed to lapse). Michael identified himself as suffering from intermittent rage disorder and bipolar disorder; he was not taking any medication for these conditions. Carolyn was taking Paxil for anxiety and depression.

“Hillary” becomes “liar”

PHILADELPHIA– It’s more difficult than you might imagine to see what’s happening on the floor of a major sports venue from the media perches up near the ceiling.

And so it was yesterday on the fourth and final day of the Democratic National Convention at the Wells Fargo Center.

I missed some details of the convention floor action that highlight just how deeply divided the Democratic Party is in the wake of its brutal, rigged nomination process.
