Snowflakes, Misfits & Arrested Development

...these descriptors immediately come to mind when I read about anti-Trump protesters burning American flags, beating Trump supporters and destroying private property. Their shameful and often brutish conduct belies their compassion, adherence to inclusivity, and their caring, peaceful, patriotic and virtuous pretenses. So much for their intellectual honesty and moral superiority.

Bereft of maturity and emotional stability, for these empty-headers, it's all about THEM and what THEY want, and what they want NOW. Adolescence on steroids. Like naughty boys and girls who didn't get their way, adolescent venting and temper tantrums now plague our streets, universities, the media and political circles. Embarrassing.

Most troubling is that after years of intensive everyone-gets-a-trophy Progressive propaganda, many of these emotionally debilitated snowflakes will be tomorrow's "leaders". Ouch.

What they are incapable of understanding is that it is precisely this kind of immaturity and lawlessness which lead to Trump's election. Mature Americans of all ages are sick of the Left's bullying, thuggery and childishness

Now's NOT the Time to be Blinded by Euphoria

Not meaning to throw a wet blanket on festivities, but this:

With Trump’s merciful victory at the polls last night, the Progressive onslaught has been abated—for the moment anyway.

But we must remember that this Marxist attack on our way of life will never dissipate; this sinister ideological threat will continue to lurk in the shadows awaiting another opportunity to undermine our traditional values and the republic itself. Count on it !

As a leader of the Alinskyite machine, Hillary has been electorally vanquished--but by only the slimmest of margins. That reality alone should give us pause and underscore our need for caution.

There are still many conniving, single-minded Progressives/Globalists out there--primarily on the Left but also on the Right--who are ready and willing to supplant Hillary and Obama to advance their insidious transformational goal.

In short, go ahead and celebrate. God knows we all need and deserve it. But, this is not a time to slip back into the clutches of apathy, neglect, disengagement or suicidal compromise with Progressivism. That's what got us into trouble in the first place.

Vigilance, remaining informed and politically engaged at every level are every bit as important now as they have always been for a free people who cherish their Liberty and traditional values.

Here's to the undaunted patriots out there who challenged the tyrannical system on November 8th and, in so doing, breathed new life back into our Republic.

Hillary's Anti-Trump "October Surprise" UNsurprising, Flat

In the face of Hillary’s shameless pathological lying and her well-documented locker room level obscenities directed at those who have both protected and advised her over the years, the misplaced kerfuffle over Trump’s locker room vulgarity occurring some eleven years ago is clearly driven more by the politics of personal destruction than by personal sensibilities. 
Admittedly, the disengaged and often ignorant American voters have produced two terrible presidential candidates, neither of whom I find acceptable, but both of whom mirror what we as a people have become. Not pretty, huh?

That said, for me it must come down to this: either we knowingly vote for an unindicted felon whose recklessness has imperiled national security and whose callous maladministration directly contributed to the needless slaughter of four Americans in Benghazi, or we vote for an unpolished politician whose vulgarity--which, while offensive, pales in comparison to that of the Clintons--intends to appoint Constitution-first justices to the Supreme Court.

The sensible choice should be screamingly obvious to all but the ideologically blind.

But, let's face it, folks: the Establishment, both Left and Right, bereft of principle and focused entirely upon their own cushy political careers, are not looking for a heartfelt apology from Trump. No, they're looking for a public execution.

If Hillary is Elected, What Then?

While appearances are often deceiving, at this juncture I am convinced Mr. Trump will most likely fail in November. Why?  He's not a practiced, professional politician and most Americans are conditioned to believe that only a person who grammatically and smoothly articulates in riddles and double-talk--not a citizen representative--makes for an effective steward. Thus, I have precious little faith that the painfully ignorant American electorate is capable of doing in November what primal survival instincts would require of them. 
My guess is that millions of voters will be inclined to either stay home, play pokemon, or do whatever it is the mindless do, and, reflecting Hillary's character flaws and aping indoctrinated automatons everywhere, millions more will be blindly seduced by Progressive tyranny and corruption. Yes, they’re THAT stupid.
Ultimately, in a democratic republic the People bear SOLE responsibility for the quality and character of their leadership. So, it’s not at all surprising that this dumbed-down electorate will continue to anoint sub-standard, self-serving, elitist stooges of the first order. In short, the People shall reap what they sow until elections no longer matter and political oppression becomes the order of the day.
As for me, and in concert with other patriots, I plan to seriously push for organized civil disobedience, state nullification and, yes, secession if Progressive thugs and Islamist sympathizers are again swept into power in November. There is simply no other reasonable recourse for thoughtful, fearful American patriots who cherish Liberty, Christian traditions, constitutional order and free enterprise.

If we objectively compare our current political condition to those conditions plaguing  Americans in 1776, it becomes painfully obvious that the level of totalitarianism and lawlessness Americans confront today is far more insidious. What patriots are willing to do about this is the burning question.

Finally, unity at ANY price is suicidal, and our Founders, to a man, would never have advocated unity over Liberty. Never!

"Operation Parse & Dodge": AG Lynch Hearing Another Disgrace

In today’s hearing, the Democrats' shameless effort to deliberately and wholly distract attention from Hillary’s felonious behavior with respect to emailgate and AG Lynch’s consistently stonewalling relevant emailgate queries were on full display. It was sickening..

The primary purpose of the Republican committee members’ questions to the AG was to determine whether or not there is a difference between “extreme carelessness” and “gross negligence”, and whether or not “intent” is necessary to prove that US Code Section 793 was violated.  Asked again and again what the legal distinction was, AG Lynch routinely deferred to Comey and her “team “ of career Justice Department attorneys. After all, she’s only the Attorney General. Why would she be expected to answer such a legal question?

Committee Democrats' deflecting attention from Hillary’s “extreme carelessness” by pretentiously asserting their caring about “more important” issues like the death of black victims in Louisiana and Minnesota as well as the assassination of five Dallas police officers was their painfully self-serving way of dodging the burning issue of Hillary's lawlessness and electability--the Rule of Law obviously of considerably less concern to them.

Once again, the ideological lines have been drawn, and there is zero interest on the part of the Democrats to uphold their oath of office and to honestly, objectively address Hillary’s lawlessness. 

Who suffers by this charade and gross irresponsibility: nothing less than the Rule of Law and the Constitution of the United States.  And without either, there can be no equal justice under the law, no Liberty, no republic, and, most certainly, no chance for restoring public trust in government.  

In short, we, once citizens of America but now subjects of Leviathan, have again been duped, dismissed and utterly ignored.  

Get this through your heads: this is no longer a constitutional republic; this is now very clearly a country where the rule of Man, not of Law, is preeminent.

Welcome to the Banana Republic of America—clearly NOT the country for which  I and my veteran friends fought and died, and certainly not the country for which those thousands of patriots who preceded us were maimed and died in her defense.

We must now look to our Founders for solace, yes, but also for their wise counsel and remedies. Those Founder-sanctioned and inherently rightful remedies are Civil Disobedience to express our unwillingness to submit to intolerable acts of government, State Nullification of unconstitutional federal acts in order to restore the State-Federal balance of power, Secession to defend constitutional order on at least the State level, or Rebellion in the face of tyranny. 

The choice before us couldn't be more stark: to restore our constitutional republic--while we are still able to do so--or to accept submission to Leviathan.

What will YOU choose?

"If the federal government should overpass the just bounds of its authority and make a tyrannical use of its powers, the people, whose creature it is, must appeal to the standard they have formed, and take such measures to redress the injury done to the Constitution as the exigency may suggest and prudence justify."

Courage & Virtue in Short Supply

(My editorial published 7/7/16 in local Democrat Chronicle)

For me, there can be only one reason why FBI Director Comey opted not to justifiably and responsibly recommend indictment of Hillary for gross negligence, aka "extreme carelessness", in her handling of classified emails.

Since Hillary is a presidential candidate with millions of followers, my guess is that Comey feared--yes, feared--being the guy who scuttled Hillary's candidacy. I also think he feared inciting tumult among enraged liberal voters and going down in  history as the guy who did it.

Of this we can all be certain: Courage, Honor, Virtue are in dangerously short supply in D.C

Going forward, no amount of shameless obfuscation and both political and lawyerly spin on the left can eliminate a justifiably widespread and perfectly reasonable belief that the Rule of Law is, in truth, d-e-a-d.

My questions: Now that the two-tiered system of justice is exposed for all to clearly see, what is left for the People to do? That's a very serious question we must carefully and dutifully weigh. And what relief should be extended to those lesser Americans out there, both civilian and military, who have suffered horrendous life-altering punishments for committing the same level of gross negligence/"extreme carelessness" exhibited by Hillary?

POSTSCRIPT: An important takeaway from this morning's painfully tedious congressional hearing was Comey's observation that, to paraphrase, in the event a person commits the same level of negligence in their handling of classified materials as did Hillary, and after a disciplinary review, s/he should either suffer appropriate administrative penalties, that being "termination, suspension, reprimand," or lose his/her security clearance.

To measure the level of Hillary's culpability in this matter, we should remain focused on 18 USC Sec 793: "...Whoever, being entrusted with or having lawful possession or control of a any document, writing, code book, signal book, sketch, photograph, photographic negative, blueprint, plan, map, model, instrument, appliance, note, or information, relating to the national defense, (1) through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody or delivered to anyone in violation of his trust, or to be lost, stolen, abstracted, or destroyed...Shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both." 

Under this statute, "intent" IS utterly irrelevant. And how is "gross negligence" defined? "A conscious and voluntary disregard of the need to use reasonable care, which is likely to cause foreseeable grave injury or harm to person, property, or both." At the very least, therefore, Hillary--or ANYONE who similarly mishandled classified materials--should lose her clearance and be appropriately disciplined. And just who's going to do that? That wasn't asked nor was the answer provided.

After carefully listening to and trying to empathize with Mr. Comey, whom I believe is probably a decent man, I remain completely flummoxed and demoralized by his inability or unwillingness to recommend AT LEAST a misdemeanor charge. 

Very importantly, Hillary's violation of this statute and her serial lying to the American public on this matter clearly render her completely unfit for office, and her election would most surely lead to the tumult Mr. Comey may have been trying to avert. Of that I'm certain. And, if  there is no such justifiable outrage or tumult, Americans should practice kneeling because they no longer citizens in a nation of laws and justice, but subjects of an all-powerful political aristocracy.

Hillary Lucks Out Again

Well, the suspense is over.

Today, FBI Director Comey announced that he will not recommend criminal charges, observing only that Hillary was "extremely careless", aka grossly negligent, with her handling of classified email, and alluding to a potential misdemeanor offense if the Justice Department is willing to go that route.

I'm sure she and her hubby are deliriously relieved and happy, as are her flipper-flapping loyalists. Let the Clinton camp's insufferable faux indignation and shameless spinning begin. Wretch...

Despite Mr. Comey's reputation as a straight-shooter and being above the political fray, his description of her handling of classified material as "extremely careless" should offer us no solace. In fact, it is a perfect bumper sticker for those of us who are justifiably opposed to a Hillary presidency. The terrible truth is "extremely careless" and grossly negligent pretty much sum up what Hillary is all about--from Emailgate, to Benghazigate, to Whitewater, etc. etc. etc.

The bigger question for me is what of the many Americans currently serving time for doing exactly what Hillary has done, i.e. carelessly handling classified and official emails? Let's face it, folks, she got off light--and WE ALL KNOW IT. That said, there is a silver lining:  this poses an opportunity for those imprisoned for having committed similar offenses to appeal their convictions. 

In any event, we'd best get used to a system that, in the end, favors the well-connected and powerful. You and I would be in jail with some of our fellow citizens, or at the very least, we would have been officially reprimanded and probably fired from our job. Regardless of one's political stripes, no reasonable and civic-minded American can deny that scenario with a straight face.

Lingering, of course, is the scandal-riddled Clinton Foundation. And how that plays out in the judicial system and the court of political opinion is anyone's guess.

One things for certain, folks: when it comes to scandal, skirting the law and routine lying, the Clinton underworld is always a target rich environment, which begs the question, are thoughtful, civic-minded Americans willing to tolerate four more years of the Clinton Mafia?

A talking head whose name escapes me recently and incisively observed that this race does not come down to a choice of "the lesser of two evils", but of "the more evil of two lessers". Not pretty, but there it is. For me, Trump, an inarticulate patriot, is my choice hands down.
