WINNING!: The “Dreamers” Become the Democratic Party’s Nightmare

Sep 21, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

During the past week, I pressed through the upset over the purported reports that Donald Trump was bending, weaving, contorting, caving (whatever) on amnesty. Was he going to strike a deal with the Democrats to get border security, then grant legal status to illegals fleeing the shadows of Obama’s DACA? Based on Democratic Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s latest headache—angry DREAMers hijacking her press conference on immigration—I am convinced that Trump played the Democrats like a mariachi band from hell—again.


The Big Business/Amnesty RINO Parade Must Be Purged from the Republican Party. How?

Aug 6, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

On at least one point Bernie-crats and conservative Republicans agree: corporations should not get hand-outs, bail-outs, or easy outs from their bad decisions. Big Business should not have the right to push laws and regulations which help them get rich, but impoverish poor and working Americans. Nor should the government assist with hollowing out suburbs and manufacturing towns through immigration abuses. It is wrong for the state to be taken over by crony interests out to line their pockets with our money at our expense. President Trump is taking on the Big Business interests with renewed vigor.


Country Club vs. Counter-Culture Republicans

Aug 6, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

 

This quote says it all.

Why the fight among Republicans has become contentious, and how the GOP Establishment, the country club set which doesn’t sweat and never worked outside of a gated community, has been calling many of the shots for the last 16 years.


Attorney General Jeff Sessions: Coming or Going?

Jul 26, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

Ever since his confirmation as United States Attorney General, I have taunted wayward politicians and sanctuary cities in California: “Jeff Sessions is coming!” Some of my opponents have retorted that Sessions is about to be fired. I say “He’s on fire.”

But with the latest twitter and interview storm from President Trump, I am not sure what to think.

Is it time for Sessions to go?


It Takes a Family—There is No Fiscal Conservatism Without Social Conservatism

Jul 25, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

The movement among Blue State Republicans is to abandon social issues, or cultural concerns. They are too divisive, and make it more difficult for conservatives to appeal to the “young generation”, since most people are more progressive.

Right? Then again, since when has expanding abortion or welcoming the destruction of marriage and family ever counted as progressive?

So, should we give up on “social conservatism”?


The Grassroots: Making We the People Great Again

Jul 16, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

Voters, pundits, political wonks are in many cases convinced that the ordinary guy on the street cannot fight city hall.

Just as an FYI, yes you can!

Check out what happened when pro-enforcement activists raise their voices against the corrupt Huntington Park City Council—the same city council which had appointed two illegal aliens to city commissions two years ago:


Mr. President, Keep Tweeting—Happy Fourth of July, Everyone!

Jul 4, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

A neighbor came up to me yesterday morning

What do you think of President Trump’s Tweets?” He asked me.

I told him I think they are great.

He is going around the media, relating his story, his narrative without the spin of the corrupt liberal press.

And we know that they are corrupt.


Intellectuals are a fairly modern invention for our society

May 27, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

One study I read labeled the prophets in the Old Testament one type of intellectual. I disagree, since they operated as revelators to a nation which had rejected the laws of God and rejected His precepts. The philosophers of Ancient Greece and Rome fall into this “intellectual” category more accurately, since they praised their reasoning, research, and logo ahead of revelation and physical effort

The common denominator among them? They were spectacularly wrong on a number of issues, whether in science or sociology


Election 2016: Trump Trumped Romney in Deep Blue California Cities: Why?

May 18, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

The Sacramento Bee did their exhaustive study on how well Donald Trump did in all California cities compared to Mitt Romney in 2012.

Trump did worse than Romney in a larger number of otherwise strongly Republican areas.

But in the most unlikely cities, Trump actually exceeded Romney.

Let’s start with the first city of note, in part because I had attended a town hall in that city last weekend: Inglewood.

Inglewood California is a decent microcosm of the political cancer that is eating out California. The city was a wellspring of growth and development. Barry Goldwater actually won Inglewood, even though he lost the rest of the state and 46 others.


Trump’s Delay on DACA Repeal: Three Possible Reasons Why

May 11, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

President Trump declared that he would repeal the Deferred Action on Childhood Arrivals Executive Order within days if not on the first day of his presidency.

He has not done it ... yet.

At first, I was extremely upset, and very concerned. Was Trump reneging on a key campaign promise? Was he losing his nerve? Has he stopped listening to the populist conservatism of his inner circle and started listening to the liberal New England family members?

Today, I am not worried about this DACA delay. I do not believe that Trump has lost his nerve. I also agree that he does have a heart, but that does not mean he won’t enforce our immigration laws. Nor does it mean that he won’t do anything to end this DREAMer con artist shell game.


Insufferable: John Kasich Running for President in 2020?

May 1, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

John Kasich.

As Presidential contender, all he wanted to do was make nice and preach hollow niceties all while abandoning conservative principles and pushing a smarmy liberalism that taxes us into oblivion and forcing higher spending. As governor of Ohio, he signed off on conservative reforms, but only because of a hard-core, supermajority Republican legislature.

And it looks as if he wants to run for President .... again. Give me a break.


Syria: The Middle East’s Blazing Tire Yard

Apr 10, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

Ever seen a tire fire?

They are a lingering yet cancerous domestic disaster. The rubber lasts for ages, keeping the fire alive far longer than any other substance. Tire fires threaten the quality of life—and life itself. The smoke from a pile of blazing tires can last for months. The haze pollutes the air, damages commerce, and endangers surrounding communities.
And lots of water won’t put them out right away.

In Southern California, we get heat and smoke advisories because of periodic inland fires.  At least this year, Governor Brown declared that emergency drought conditions are ending. There’s so much water in California now, even Los Angeles County does not register with drought conditions.


Winning for Pro-Family Groups: Target Makes Itself a Target, and Loses

Mar 20, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

Target, a major, publicly traded company, decided to jump into the culture wars and impose transgendersim on its entire clientele.

California MassResistance, the Golden State branch of the hard-hitting successful pro-family activist group MassResistance,  staged three protests in 2016 to boycott Target.

Why?


The Full Display of La Raza Hate in Cudahy, California

Mar 4, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

The vast majority of voters in the United States recognized the looming threat that a Hillary Clinton presidency would pose—and impose—on all of them.

She was creepy, crappy, corrupt, crooked.

The media would promote her campaign to the utmost, even though she could only draw in 100 to 200 voters to her events.

Trump’s rallies brought in thousands, if not tens of thousands.

Hillary Clinton was the culmination of elitist, globalist, Beltway tyranny all the way.

And We the People said “Hill No!”


Truth and Error about Prop 187 and the California Republican Party

Feb 25, 2017 — Arthur Christopher Schaper

Mid-year 2016, the Sacramento Bee trotted out their same tired line about Prop 187 and the long-lasting damage it caused to the California Republican Party. The media narrative loves to demonize conservatives as anti-immigrant bigots who pushed this agenda so far in 1994, which in turn caused the GOP brand to suffer.
