U.S. Constitution vs. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals

U.S. Constitution vs. Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals
You might think that would be a ridiculous contest, but look around you and see what is going on, it might not be so ridiculous after all.

Ever since the election of Donald Trump, there has been a concerted effort to not only to try to undermine President Trump, but to undermine the U.S. Constitution itself.  Shutting down speakers on campus, rallying to ban or control guns, disseminating “fake news” as fact, and advancing the tactic of the “politics of personal destruction” are all part of the radical Alinsky agenda.

ROMNEY’S BETRAYAL

ROMNEY’S BETRAYAL
With a singularly impressive record of failure in public life under his belt, the always-predictable virtue-signaler Willard Mitt Romney has chosen to take the low road, beginning his freshman term in the United States Senate by stabbing President Trump and his fellow Republicans in the back.

Instead of, say, waiting a brief time to get settled into his new office as Utah senator, the former Massachusetts governor, who to this day refuses to apologize for his Bay State government healthcare program that inspired Obamacare, took to the pages of the Washington Post two days before his swearing-in to attack the “character” of someone who as president has been generous, forgiving, and supportive of him.


Descending Into Chaos

Descending Into Chaos
The government shutdown is finishing its second week and the new Congress gets sworn in today. I can hardly wait. As the establishment elements of both parties continue to hand-wring over the current President, I really don’t wonder what is going to happen when the Democrats take control of the House of Representatives and Nancy Pelosi becomes—again— the Speaker of the House. I fear I know just how far her caucus will go in attempting to unseat Donald Trump. I suspect there is no limit to what they will attempt as their end goal has revealed itself and their main strategy has unfolded.

We Are Living in A Game of Jenga

We Are Living in A Game of Jenga
The holidays are a time for family gatherings and, in keeping with that tradition, one evening our family gathered around for a fun, but rather challenging building block game called Jenga. The game becomes more and more exciting for both the players and onlookers, especially as it gets closer to the visually unstable ending, where one bad-move, as President Trump might call it, will cause the tall stack of building blocks to come crashing down.

But, suffice to say, as we sat around enjoying each of our grandchildren attempt to delicately remove each block without causing the entire structure to fall down, the thought came crashing-into-my-mind that life on the edge in America today is very similar to the children’s game of Jenga, where just one-bad-move could bring the total destruction of our society as we know it. Which, as you might imagine, would no longer be a fun game, even for the onlookers.

The Biggest Democrat Expert on Russian Trolls was a Russian Troll

The Biggest Democrat Expert on Russian Trolls was a Russian Troll
When the Democrats and the media wanted to prove that Russian trolls were everywhere, and supporting Republicans, they turned to Jonathon Morgan and Renee DiResta.

Morgan and DiResta had originally been part of Obama’s futile effort to fight ISIS on social media, before discovering a much more lucrative field. ISIS was losing on the battlefield and the Democrats were losing elections. The Hillary campaign had hatched a conspiracy theory blaming its loss on Russian trolls. And Morgan and DiResta soon became the experts providing the data linking Republicans to Russian trolls.

NEXT CARAVAN RISING

NEXT CARAVAN RISING
Another large caravan of would-be illegal aliens is forming down in Central America with the intention of moving north to demand jobs and government benefits, according to media reports.

The formation of this new army of migrants drives home the point that a border wall at the lengthy, porous U.S.-Mexico boundary is urgently needed. The failure to move forward with wall construction sends a message to the world that America is a weak country that lacks the moral fiber and political will to defend its national sovereignty. Not building the wall also provides would-be border jumpers extra incentives to enter the United States unlawfully.


The Battle Over God-Given Rights in 2019

The Battle Over God-Given Rights in 2019
On December 7th last year, while Americans were still recovering from bewilderment in the aftermath of the national elections, and while there were public acknowledgements of the Pearl Harbor attack, President Donald Trump issued a presidential proclamation of a different nature, specifically regarding the Bill of Rights. Of course, the mainstream media did not pay much attention to the points the president made in that proclamation, which was also an acknowledgement of the U.N. Human Rights Day, but Trump made an incredible statement in what could normally viewed as a boilerplate recognition of regular holidays. An excerpt from the statement demonstrated that Trump is a genuine champion of God-given, human rights.

Are the Anti-Fascists the Real Fascists?

Are the Anti-Fascists the Real Fascists?
To listen to the radical left, you’d think that the Republicans and the Conservatives were the real “fascists” who are undermining our society, including the people who support that “Hitler Clone”, President Donald Trump.  Is that charge true or are those pushing that narrative the ones who are the real “fascists”?

When Harry Cheated on Sally

When Harry Cheated on Sally, Psychological projection,
When Harry cheated on Sally he accused Sally of cheating. What? It is called projection. Psychological projection is a “psychological defense mechanism in which the human ego defends itself against unconscious impulses or qualities by denying their existence in themselves and attributing them to others.” Projection is a method of blame shifting - Harry blamed Sally for what Harry did.

When Harry accuses Sally it is incumbent upon Sally to defend herself from the bogus charges. This cunning maneuver shifts the focus from Harry to Sally which is the underlying strategic objective of the false allegations. So, while Sally is busy defending herself Harry’s guilt goes unchallenged and he can continue to cheat. The best defense is an offense.

Obamacare Coined Older “Units” Seen To Last At The ER

older person, going to an ER room
As an older person, going to an ER room in Northern Virginia is an exercise in costly futility unless you are on death’s door or are prepared to wait for endless hours while younger people are being treated for colds, high fever, bleeding fingers and toes, and other accidents which occur in the exercise of our daily human lives.

Few Americans know or care that the Affordable Care Act of 2010 or Obamacare had labeled those over a certain age as “units.” If patients are young, they probably think themselves immortal - they would never get old, therefore such “unit” labeling does not apply to them. The stark realization hits you like a ton of bricks - you have become an older “unit” that can be ignored because government formulas deemed your utility to society too close to zero.

MELANIA TRUMP IS THE RINGSIDE POLITICS CHAMPION OF THE YEAR

MELANIA TRUMP IS THE RINGSIDE POLITICS CHAMPION OF THE YEAR
Every year on the Ringside Politics program, we award our “Turkey” of the year during Thanksgiving and our “Champion” of the year in late December. This year, the “winner” of our turkey award was House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fitting choice for such a failed leader. However, our “Champion” award was a more difficult selection. During the past year, many fine people distinguished themselves in a positive way Finally, after input from our great listening audience, our decision was clear. For many reasons, including her grace and style under unrelenting criticism and pressure, First Lady Melania Trump was chosen as our Ringside Politics Champion of the Year.

Dawn of the Debacle

Dawn of the Debacle
As my favorite American philosopher, Yogi Berra once said, “It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.”  Nevertheless I’m going to take a stab at it.

Are you ready for the night of the long knives?  Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of the Make America Miserable Again crowd have been trying to destroy President Trump by the death of a thousand cuts.  Every day 24/7 their poodle press in the ABCCBSNBCCNNMSNBCPBSNPR Cartel has been trumpeting the lies and false accusations of their endless stream of fake news.  They follow the teachings of Joseph Goebbels that “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it.”  They operate on the wisdom contained in an old observation, “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes.”  And the Low Information Voters drink it all in and repeat it Ad Nauseam as their own personal opinion.

Build the Wall

Build the Wall
Washington, D.C. – Yesterday at 4:00 PM ET, Congress reconvened and, while not on the official schedule, the focus is on resolving the current government shutdown. Liberty Counsel Action is supporting the $5 billion dollars requested by President Trump to build a wall on the Mexican border because of the increased safety and long-term financial savings this will provide to Americans.

PRINCELY FINANCE AND TAXATION

PRINCELY FINANCE AND TAXATION
One would have hoped that financial rip-offs committed by medieval princes would have been permanently shelved when liberal enlightenment ended the divine right of kings.

Continuing promises by Chairman Reckless to use the “printing press”, “helicopters” and more recently “bazookas” to inflate anything should be considered startling only in the resort to honesty. Euphemisms for currency depreciations started with the original promoters of the Fed and the tout was that a “flexible” currency would prevent serious financial contractions.

Hillary’s Russia Doomsday Scenario

The Steele dossier, a document produced by Christopher Steele at the behest of the Clinton campaign is ground zero for the Russia conspiracy theory that is tearing apart the country. Even the Mueller investigation has its ultimate roots in the eavesdropping carried out by the Obama administration using the dossier as evidence and the dubious and unverified claims made by Steele in the dossier.

But why did the Clinton campaign ever set out to create such a document?

No More Lemon Test

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Liberty Counsel is filing an amicus brief to the U.S. Supreme Court on behalf of a case involving a 93-year-old 40-foot cross war memorial in Bladensburg, Maryland that the American Humanist Association has challenged as violating the Establishment Clause.

The “Peace Cross,” made of granite and cement, was built in 1925 as a tribute to local men who died during World War I. The Gold-Star Mothers who designed the memorial in 1919 chose the shape to recall the crosses marking the countless American graves on the Western Front of that war. A plaque on the base of the cross lists the names of 49 soldiers and both faces of the cross have a circle with the symbol of the American Legion, the veterans’ organization that helped raise money to build it. It was also paid for by local families and businesses. It stands on a piece of land that has been owned since 1961 by a state commission at Maryland Route 450 and U.S. Route 1 in Bladensburg, approximately five miles from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Trump’s Syria Solution

Trump's Syria Solution
I am opposed to any number of Trump’s agenda items.

But, I must say that we ought to have turned the corner on Neo-Con pundits and supporters of the US as World Policeman. We are not talking about “mopping up” operations or a new “Marshall Plan,” or old ideas from WWII in a different world war in a distant, different era. Tell me how they are alike. Please.

Stalin, of all people, once stated, “One death is a tragedy, 5,000 deaths is a statistic.”

Time For United States to Police Our Own Neighborhood

Time For United States to Police Our Own Neighborhood
In November of 2016, the American people elected Donald Trump to be our nation’s 45th President. He campaigned on a platform of bringing our troops back home from Syria and Afghanistan and focusing on an “America First” foreign policy. By announcing he was removing our 2,000 troops from Syria, the President is following through on another campaign promise.

Syria is a hodgepodge of multiple terrorist groups, regional forces, foreign troops and religious fighters exerting influence. Our forces have been working with the Kurdish fighters in the Northeast section of the country fighting Islamic State terrorists. The operation has been an amazing success and the Islamic State has suffered tremendous losses. In both Iraq and Syria, the terrorists now control only 1% of the land they used to dominate.

With Liberty And Justice For Some

With Liberty And Justice For Some
“The Justice Department is stuck because if they go after Comey they have to go after Hillary. Comey and Hillary are in the same legal boat.” Tom Fitton, President of Judicial Watch

“Equal Justice Under Law” is engraved on the front of the Supreme Court building. The Pledge of Allegiance, which is hardly recited anymore, proudly says “...with Liberty and Justice for All.”

Equal justice under the law is not merely a caption on a building. It is the framework of our entire legal system. It has set us apart from corrupt societies for almost 250 years. But, somehow, we have turned a corner, deciding instead to refute the law and depend, instead, on our feelings, political philosophy and ambition.

THE SHUTDOWN

THE SHUTDOWN,
Americans will have to wait until after Christmas to find out if their elected representatives will ante up the $5 billion needed to get construction started on President Trump’s desperately needed multi-state border wall with Mexico.

Under pressure from the president, whose signature campaign promise is building the wall to beef up immigration enforcement efforts, the House voted 217 to 185 on Dec. 20 to approve a temporary spending bill after adding $5.7 billion in appropriations for the wall.

What is Treason?

What is Treason?
The word “treason” has been thrown around willy-nilly recently in trying to tag President Trump with that label after he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland, and recently, Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan, in the sentencing hearing in the General Flynn case, mentioned the word treason.  Is there any validity to that word being used against President Trump or General Flynn?  In the U.S. Constitution it states the following:  “Treason against the United States, shall consist only in levying War against them (the U.S.A.) or in adhering to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort.  No person shall be convicted of treason unless on the testimony of two witnesses to the same overt act or on confession in open court”.  In addition, the Merriam-Webster definition defines treason as:  “The offense of attempting by overt acts to overthrow the government of the State to which the offender owes allegiance”.

The Betrayal of America: Who Do You Trust?

“Who do you trust?” is the foundational question in human relationships. Social relationships, family relationships, business relationships, romantic relationships, intimate friendships, professional relationships, political relationships - human relationships rely on trust. The existence of trust or the absence of trust defines human relatedness.

Parents tell their children when they are very young, “Whatever you do don’t lie to me.” Why? Because trust is the foundation of love.

Restoring Civilization: We Can’t MAGA Unless We MAMA

Restoring Civilization: We Can't MAGA Unless We MAMA
They can sense it. They can feel it. Something is seriously wrong in our civilization, and many people know it. This is why despite the relatively good economic times, most Americans polled say our country is on the “wrong track.” Yet many are like a gravely ill man who knows he’s not well but can’t precisely identify his ailment. Most often, Americans have only a vague sense of cultural malaise, or they “self-diagnose” wrongly.

Years ago I had a brief “state of the nation” discussion with a very fine, older country gentleman. While no philosopher, he did offer the following diagnosis. Struggling for words and gesticulating a bit, he said, “There’s…there’s no morality.”

Lawless Judge Strikes Down Trump’s Asylum Policy

As President Trump made significant progress in his bid to win congressional funding for a border wall with Mexico, a swamp-dwelling federal judge in Washington struck down Trump administration policies that made it more difficult for foreigners who claim to be victims of domestic or gang violence to seek asylum.

Trump has vowed to use the military to build the wall and in recent days sent out mixed messages about whether he would veto a stopgap spending bill needed to avert a partial government shutdown at Friday midnight. After a fierce backlash from conservatives like Ann Coulter apparently prompted Trump to return to his hardline stance insisting on getting border wall funding now before Democrats take over the House of Representatives in two weeks, Republican congressional leaders met with the president at the White House midday Thursday. Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) emerged from the meeting to announce Trump would veto any spending measure that lacked funding for the wall, the president’s signature issue on the 2016 campaign trail.


California Gov. Jerry Brown ‘Exit Interview’ is Classic Jerry

California Gov. Jerry Brown ‘Exit Interview’ is Classic Jerry

At California Gov. Jerry Brown’s “Exit Interview” Tuesday, the Sacramento Press Club auctioned off autographed souvenirs from his years in the Governor’s office, including cartoons of his budget press conference presentations of charts and graphs, Proposition 30 memorabilia increasing sales and income taxes, and graphs showing state government living within its means. Other charts showed record spending levels.

Gov. Jerry Brown is known for his infrequent and rather unscripted press conferences, often making glib remarks, or quoting Zen Buddhism, Latin theology, philosophy, and “ontology” – the nature of being. Tuesday Brown did not disappoint during his “Exit Interview,” as he prepares to leave the Governor’s office for the last time on Jan. 7.
