Deplorable Timing

Dec 31, 2016 — Jim ONeill

You know…you could put half of Trump’s supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables. Right? The racist, sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, Islamaphobic—you name it. Hillary Clinton 9/9/16

“What then is time? If no one asks me, I know what it is. If I wish to explain it to him who asks, I do not know.”—Saint Augustine/Augustine of Hippo (354-430 AD) “The Confessions,” Book 11, Chapter 14

I was deplorable long before it was cool—ask anyone in my family and they will enthusiastically support my claim to early deplorableness. “Oh yeah, he was deplorable even as a kid!”

Merry Christmas! Again

Dec 24, 2016 — Jim ONeill

””

Hark the herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn king”
Peace on earth, and mercy mild
God and sinners reconciled
Joyful all ye nations rise
Join the triumph of the skies
With angelic host proclaim
“Christ is born in Bethlehem”
—Excerpt from “Hark the Herald Angels Sing,” lyrics by Charles Wesley (1707-1788) and various authors

It is mighty nice to have Jesus back in the fold again, so to speak – just in time for His birthday too!

After many (way too many) years of American Christianity being subtly and not so subtly attacked by forces inimical to Jesus/God, it is with joyous expectation and relief that “we the people” look forward to President-Elect Donald J. Trump (and VP-Elect Mike Pence) reinstating “Merry Christmas!” while showing “Happy Holidays” the door.  We look forward to them ushering in a period of grace where Jesus and His teachings once again serve as a lodestone and compass for America to steer by.

So “Hark, and welcome back Jesus, happy birthday!”  May we as a country, and as individuals, be worthy, and act worthy, of Christ’s manifold blessings—Amen.

America’s 2nd Patriotic Revolution

Nov 28, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I will only do what is right for our country, which I love.—President-Elect Donald J. Trump “Crippled America” (p. 90)
Do you not think an Angel rides in the Whirlwind and directs this Storm? —John Page (1743-1808) Letter to Thomas Jefferson, 1776

I fully expect sporadic spasms of the globalist movement’s death throes to continue inflicting posthumous damage for some time.  Yet, like John Page during the 1st American Revolution I sense the Divine Hand of Providence in Trump’s election as POTUS, and share Page’s feeling that an angel rides the whirlwind and directs this storm.  It is through God’s grace that “we the people” have prevailed thus far.

Trump Voters – Support Geert Wilders!

Nov 24, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I stand here before you. Alone. But I am not alone. My voice is the voice of many. …A worldwide movement is emerging that puts an end to the politically correct doctrines of the elites and the media that are subordinate to them.  And I tell you, the battle of the elite against the people will be won by the people.  Here, too, you will not be able to stop this, but rather accelerate it.  We will win… and it will be remembered well who was on the right side of history.  Common sense will prevail over politically correct arrogance.

The voice of freedom cannot be imprisoned; it rings like a bell.  Everywhere, ever more people are saying what they think.  They do not want to lose their land, they do not want to lose their freedom.—Geert Wilders 11/23/16 “Final Statement at His ‘Hate Speech’ Trial”

Trump Victory—“We the People” Win!

Nov 9, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Can I hear an Amen?  The above words by Martin Luther King Jr. echo down the years and resonate with undiminished power for “we the people” today.  But there is much work ahead of us.

To paraphrase another great man, Winston Churchill: Now is not the end, nor is it the beginning of the end—it is the dawn of a beginning.

Shhh – It’s Okay to Vote for Trump

Nov 7, 2016 — Jim ONeill

It’s okay – just don’t tell anyone.

All of you angry Bernie supporters who got sold out – it’s okay to vote for Trump.  Rather than waste your vote or not vote at all, vote for someone (a non-politician) who honestly understands your anger and frustration; someone who will actually do something about the corrupt Washington establishment and the rotten trade deals that rob us blind.  Vote for Trump and don’t tell anyone – no one need ever know.

You Christians who can’t bring yourself to vote for a man who you consider vulgar and crude – please rethink your attitude.  Actions speak louder than words, and Trump’s actions over the years speak of a man of kindness, strength, and compassion.  Granted Trump has some rough edges, but so what?  Jesus hung out with sinners – are you better than Jesus?  Vote for Trump and help save our religious freedoms – it is your duty as a Christian!  No need to tell anyone you voted for Trump if you feel ashamed of making a stand for Christianity.  Simply keep your vote to yourself.

Trump Restores Pride: No Bull

Nov 2, 2016 — Jim ONeill

In a Trump administration, there will be no bulls—t.—Bobby Knight “Bobby Knight to Michigan Rally

We make men without chests and expect of them virtue and enterprise. We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst. We castrate and bid the geldings be fruitful.—C.S. Lewis (1898-1963) “The Abolition of Man

Trump is almost singlehandedly restoring pride—pride in America, pride in work, pride in ourselves. Not, mind you, the false twisted “pride” of professional victimhood, nor the bloated self-importance of narcissistic vanity, but the inner glow of healthy self-love, self-worth, and self-respect.

The Autumn of Our Discontent

Oct 24, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Lately I have noticed that the political establishment’s trademark supercilious smirk has morphed into something more akin to a feral grimace. Perhaps the more astute of these professional parasites (i.e. those whose heads are not too far up their butts) sense the end of their taxpayer-funded lives of power and privilege. Can I hear an “Amen!” brothers and sisters?

Despite the continuing preponderance of MSM polls that show 12 out of every 10 voters choose Clinton over Trump, there is an increasing tendency on the part of the American electorate to reject the MSM polls as being, in a word, nonsense. The globalist elites are rapidly losing their stranglehold on America’s attention, following hard on the heels of losing America’s trust.

Trump and the Politics of Polling

Oct 15, 2016 — Jim ONeill

There’s something missing in the polling. There’s an avalanche of negative media coverage but still thousands rally for Trump.—Gov. Mike Pence “Pence: ‘There’s Something Missing in the Polling These Days’”

“There’s something awfully screwy going on around here.”  Elmer Fudd

If you are still relying on the MSM for your “news” then you my friend have a very skewed idea of reality.

For example: after days, weeks, months of Trump’s record-breaking rallies in locations all across the nation, we are supposed to believe that Clinton leads Trump in the polls. Excuse me? What planet are these polls being taken on?

Liberals are Prudes – Who Knew?

Oct 8, 2016 — Jim ONeill

Recently much ado has been made of some crude comments that Donald Trump made some years back.  Media mavens are all aflutter with outraged disgust.  I do not know what convent these shocked sisters came from, but I have heard similar male braggadocio my entire adult life.  Perhaps they need to get out more.

Apparently many of the pundits we watch on TV have been closet Puritans all this time – who knew?  Many of them are the same ones that informed us that displaying Christ crucified in a jar of human urine is art; that murdering fetuses in order to harvest their organs is not obscene, and who insist that our children be taught the ins and outs of fornication at younger and younger ages (pun noted)—so one can be forgiven for being somewhat surprised by their air of affronted prudery.  Poor dears, one does wish them a speedy recovery – hand out the smelling salts please.

So Donald Trump has feet of clay—guess what?  I like him that way! I am so sick of polished, slick talking, glad-handing, backstabbing, dishonest corrupt politicians that I could scream.  I’ll take the real deal—I’ll take Trump with his rough edges and sharp elbows, warts and all, over any of the oh-so-refined thoroughly corrupt bought-and-paid-for globalists being shoved down our throats.  Now they are disgusting.

Mike Pence’s Home Run

Oct 5, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I am sure that I am not alone in feeling that Mike Pence was the only adult on stage during the VP debate. As far as looking composed, mature and, in a word, presidential, Pence won that contest walking away.

And no he was not setting himself up for a 2020 run for POTUS as some would have it. Gov. Pence went out of his way to repeatedly champion Trump and mention how proud he was to be associated with him. Sorry liberal pundits, trying to isolate Pence from Trump just won’t wash.

And Kaine’s behavior—good golly Miss Molly! “Breitbart” noted his “High, High, HIGH Energy” and numerous folks took note of his “over-caffeinated” enthusiasm. Where is Howard Dean and his scurrilous accusations when you need him?

But enough about Kaine—may he prosper…elsewhere. The story here is Mike Pence’s rock-solid unflappable demeanor, which came through loud and clear. Which did much, and will do much, to subdue concerns about Trump’s temperament. After all, Mike Pence is waiting in the wings should the need arise—a voice of calm reason if ever there was one. You hit one out of the park for our team Mike—way to go.

“Idiot Shaming” Clinton’s Female Supporters

Oct 3, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I can only conclude that Clinton’s female supporters admire liars (the bigger the lies the better) and sexual predator enablers; love paying higher taxes, and totally approve of the ongoing collusion/corruption between Wall Street, Big Banking, Big Media and Big Government. They couldn’t care less about their personal safety (“Let anybody and everybody into the country—sure, why not?”), and blithely dismiss America’s malignant massive debt and dismal economic condition as much ado about nothing. They are, in a word, idiots.

The fact that Clinton’s supporters (most notably the media) think that she won the first presidential debate tells me all I need to know about their mental acuity, or rather lack thereof.

Welcome to the Trump Bump

Sep 27, 2016 — Jim ONeill

I am listening to talking heads on TV discussing the first debate between Trump and Clinton, and I have to shake my head in wonder.  Do these morons never learn?  Are they that dim-witted, or does living in their media bubble leave them so out of touch with reality that they are really as clueless as they appear?

As my civic duty I feel obligated to clue them in – Trump won the debate.  They really need to get over their shock and awe whenever Trump surges ahead after a debate performance. 

I’ll go out on a limb here and predict that by this time next week Trump’s poll numbers will have increased substantially.  It always takes a few days for the results to kick in, but the results are always the same.

Those of us who watched the Republican Primary debates know the drill.  Now the rest of the country will get to experience it.  Welcome to the club Democrats.

Now your policy wonks and think tank experts get to scratch their heads and say “WTF?”  “But…but we won!”

No, no you did not.  Give it a few days—the “Trump Bump” will appear.

Liberal Ladies Better Get Sneakers While They Last

Sep 13, 2016 — Jim ONeill

The past year, more than one million immigrants from the third world, almost exclusively younger men, came to Germany, and the country is currently experiencing a historic rape wave without equal, which many expected would happen.

This has led Germany’s Federal Criminal Police, BKA, to advise German women on how to best protect themselves against rape.

[Among the] tips for women from the BKA: Wear sneakers instead of high heels so that you can run away faster. —Speisa “German Woman Are Encouraged to Wear Sneakers to Run Away from Rapists

I recently spotted an article by Jim Hoft on “Gateway Pundit” whose title caught my eye: “German Officials Encourage Women to Wear Sneakers to Outrun Migrant Rapists.”
