Are Pelosi/Schumer “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?
Have you listened to Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer lately, as they offer their reasons why a southern border wall is immoral and a waste of taxpayer money?  Do you think they could be tagged with the sobriquet of “Nebulous Namby Pambys”?  They offer no meaningful alternatives to stemming the flow of illegal immigration over our porous southern border, the flow of murderous drugs that is killing many of our, mostly young, citizens, and the flow of human trafficking.  The Merriam-Webster dictionary definition of the term “Nebulous Namby Pambys” is as follows:  “Nebulous” - indistinct, vague, and hazy.  “Namby Pamby” - pathetically weak and indecisive.  No matter how you slice it, those terms fit these two feckless politicians, don’t you agree?

Ignominious Ingrates

Ignominious Ingrates
Do you think that Democrats who are against building a security border wall on the border with Mexico, could or should be called or classified as “ignominious ingrates”?  The definition of those terms by Merriam-Webster is as follows.  “Ignominious” – marked or characterized by disgrace or shame, despicable, and, “Ingrate” - an ungrateful person.  Do those definitions describe the actions of the anti-wall Democrats and their flunkies in the main stream media?

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

Jan 3, 2019 — Chuck Lehmann

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.

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”?

What is Treason?

Dec 24, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

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”.

Should Our Educational Institutions be Charged With “Educational Malpractice”?

Dec 7, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Should Our Educational Institutions be Charged With Educational Malpractice
Our doctors and lawyers can be charged with “professional malpractice”, so why can’t or shouldn’t our schools and school administrators be also held liable for “educational malpractice”?

What a disgrace that the most prosperous and free country in the world, the U.S.A., has such a pitiful record of educational achievement with all those millions of dollars being spent on education in all 50 states.

Who are the Disciples of Chaos?

Who are the Disciples of Chaos?
What do we have to look forward to when the new Democrat majority controlled House of Representatives convenes in January, 2019?  Is anything positive being planned by the Democrats or will it be Trump bashing from day one through to the 2020 election?

Ah, for the good ole days of Democrat Tip O’Neill and Republican Newt Gingrich, who worked for bi-partisan agreements that had positive effects for our country, even though the president was of the opposing party.  Speaker O’Neill worked with President Reagan on the “Reagan tax cuts”, and Speaker Newt Gingrich worked with President Clinton on getting “welfare reform”.  Will this same bi-partisan cooperation come about during this new Congress?

The Merchants of Venom

The Merchants of Venom
Have you listened to the “news” broadcasts of CNN or MSNBC lately?  Almost 100% of the air time on those stations is devoted to anti-Trump and anti-Republican bashing, it’s like no other news is happening in our country and around the world.  You could, in all honesty, call those media outlets, “Merchants of Venom”.

Who Are the “Grievance Hustlers”?

Nov 19, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Who Are the Grievance Hustlers
Have you ever seen such moaning and groaning about what is happening in our country, especially now when our economy is booming and our GDP is hovering around 4%?

The recent cast of characters that have come to the forefront of the Democrat Party, are what you could honestly call - “grievance hustlers”.  No matter what the good news news is regarding the economy or our foreign policy, this group of “grievance hustlers” will totally ignore the positive to champion the negative.  It’s not only the Democrats but their willing co-conspirators in the main stream media.

When You Reward Something the More You Get of it!

When You Reward Something the More You Get of it
Well, well, how true that statement is especially when it refers to our treatment of illegal aliens.  When we give people who have “invaded” our country (even non-militarily) illegally, and we give them food, shelter, clothing, education, health care, sanctuary cities, and a drivers license, you know right away that our benevolence will attract others to do the same, it’s almost like a magnet.  In other words, when you reward something the more you get of it.

Liberals: “The Axis of Ignorance”

Oct 28, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Liberals: The Axis of IgnoranceHave your listened to the rhetoric of today’s liberal politicians running for office?  Can you discern anything positive they are presenting other than personal invective against President Trump,  the Republicans and giving out more “free stuff”?  How do those attacks on the president make the average American’s life better other than to create more animosity among both the Democrats and Republicans?

What do they propose that they claim would be beneficial to the citizens of our country?  As usual, they propose “free this” and “free that”, hoping that the average American voter will vote for them because they want something for nothing. Some might fall for this ploy, but I don’t think the vast majority of citizens want a “handout”, they really would like to have a “hand up” instead.

Do Feminists Practice Misandry?

Sep 20, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Do Feminists Practice Misandry?
Never heard of that word?  It is the antonym of “misogyny” which is defined as hatred of women.  “Misandry” is defined as the hatred of men.

Hawaii Senator, Mazie Hirono, recently has stated that men must step up in the era of “#Me Too” or just shut up.  That belligerent statement seems to be the prevailing opinion of many feminist groups who blame all men for all misbehavior against women.  Placing all men in the same boat as women abusers seems to be quite a misguided blanket statement.

Me, Myself, and I—Obama’s Favorite Words!

Sep 11, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Me, Myself, and I--Obama's Favorite Words!
Have you noticed that whenever Barack Hussein Obama speaks, he uses the words “me”, “myself”, and “I” almost exclusively in trying to get his talking points across during his scripted speeches?  Well, as you can imagine, many people point out that that is the trait of a narcissist or somebody totally in love with himself and to hell with anyone else.

Yes, you could say, that most politicians are narcissists, but not to the extent of comparing him to Obama.  If you notice, Trump uses the terms “we”, “us”, and “our” much more than Obama, who thinks everything revolves around him.

Close Only Counts in Horseshoes and Grenades

Aug 9, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

To listen to the Democrats and their lackeys in the media, the Democrats by being close in the various elections around the country signals an omen for their success in the coming November midterm elections. 

Is their optimism warranted or is it just wishful thinking?

Should Public Employee Unions Be Allowed to Elect Their Boss?

Jul 12, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Should Public Employee Unions Be Allowed to Elect Their Boss
Many people over the years, including former President Franklin D. Roosevelt, have said that public employee unions should not have the power, indirectly, to basically elect their bosses as they have been doing for many decades.

That concern seems to have been lessened by the Supreme Court’s decision in the Janus vs. AFSCME case.  The Supreme Court, by a 5 to 4 vote, ruled that public employee unions cannot force state and local government workers to pay union dues (called “Agency Fees”) who do not want to join the union.  The decision does not affect the existence of private employee unions.

Socialism:  The Philosophy of Failure

Jul 5, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Sir Winston Churchill on Socialism
Sir Winston Churchill once said the following:  “Socialism is philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery”.  That prescient statement sort of sums up what is wrong with the prevailing opinion of many millennials and a goodly number of Democrats.

Whatever Happened to the “Blue Dog” Democrats?

Jul 2, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Whatever Happened to the Blue Dog Democrats?
First, let’s define what a “Blue Dog” Democrat is (or was).  A “Blue Dog” Democrat is a member of Congress who is moderate or more conservative in their voting record and political philosophy than the other, more liberal, Democrats in the House and Senate.

There was a time when both Democrats and Republicans would bury their political differences over a beer after working hours -  but no more.  Those were the days and the “heyday” of the group of Democrats called the “Blue Dogs”.

It’s Deja Vu All Over Again!

Jun 17, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

It's Deja Vu All Over Again!
That statement, made famous by the legendary Yogi Berra, seems to relate to the recent Justice Department Inspector General’s report on the operations of the FBI and the Justice Department, under the Obama Administration, in relation to Hillary Clinton’s illegal e-mail server case and how it was handled.  The report claims that there was “NO” bias by either the FBI or the Justice Department in that investigation of Hillary’s illegal e-mail use of a private server as Secretary of State.

Are We Graduating Too Many “Educational Illiterates”?

May 7, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Are We Graduating Too Many Educational Illiterates
In the United States, we spend more money on education than any other country in the world.  You’d think with that expenditure that we would be turning out mostly qualified intellectually savvy graduates, but it seems instead, we are turning out too many “educational illiterates”.  We must be doing something wrong.

If you watch enough current events news programs on T.V. when they interview students and young adults on the street or on the campuses of colleges and universities, when you ask simple questions like, “What is Auschwitz known for”, you get blank stares and no answers. In addition, I saw a “persons on the street interview” where the person conducting the interview asked the interviewees what they thought about the Trump tax plan.  Almost to a person, they thought it was terrible and favored only the rich 1% and corporations.  Then the interviewer asked the people about Bernie Sanders tax plan (but the questions asked were actually provisions of the Trump tax plan).  All said that they agreed with “Bernie’s” plan.

Is This the End of the Boy Scouts?

May 3, 2018 — Chuck Lehmann

Is This the End of the Boy Scouts?
For over the past 108 years, many of our leaders, in both the public and private sectors, were once part of that proud, patriotic organization called the Boy Scouts.  I was a Boy Scout (first I was a Cub Scout) of less than attributed success.  I started out as a “Tenderfoot” and ended my career as a “Boy Scout” as a “Tenderfoot”.  At that time in my life, my main goal and interest in life was to become a big league ballplayer, not an “Eagle Scout”.  (I never made the big leagues, but I did play for three years in the minor leagues).  I do have fond memories of the short time I was exposed to the activities of the Boy Scouts.

Now that that once great organization, the Boy Scouts, has succumbed to “political correctness” and has dropped the designation “Boy” from its organization name, I feel that it is just a matter of time that the “Boy Scouts” now “Scouts”, will be found deposited on the scrap heap of history.  As former senator and the late Daniel Patrick Moynihan once opined, we are “defining deviancy down”, and we are scrapping another time-honored part of our past.  It is part an insidious campaign to “cleanse” our historical past, by busy bodies with a political agenda that have been attacking our culture, our monuments, our Constitution, and institutions that we once held dear.
