He's Going, Going, Gone! (1/20/17)





"So this is how it ends - in a whimper wrapped in self-pity and recriminations. With President Obama on the defensive at his final press conference and Hillary Clinton’s last campaign event resembling a wake, the Democratic Party is limping off the stage and into the political winter.  It was supposed to sit atop the national power pyramid for decades, a new paradigm of liberals, progressives, the young, the old, the unions and blacks, Latinos, Muslims and Asians.  The torch would be passed from Obama to Clinton, a liberal Supreme Court would vastly expand executive power and the regulatory state would enforce climate-change orthodoxy on all industry and elitist dictates on every American. Globalism would be the new patriotism.  But a funny thing happened on the way to one-party dominance: The people who work for a living said no, hell no. Their revolt brings Donald Trump to the White House amid hopes of a revival of the economy and of the American spirit.  Thoroughly beaten, the Dems are at their lowest point in nearly a century. From the White House to Congress to statehouses, they are on the outside looking in." – Michael Goodwin



“Obama isn't just leaving political life, he is also leaving the Democratic Party a smoldering ruin. He took office on a wave that turned America blue....The last four elections point toward a massive miscalculation by Obama. He confused his own electoral strength as a candidate with popular support for his ideas. In the end, his transformative policies proved so unpopular that far too many other Democrats could not survive them...his fellow Democrats have been cut down in huge swaths whenever their leader was not on the ballot. Obama led House Democrats like sheep to the slaughter in 2010 and 2014. In the Senate, Democrats who voted for Obamacare were wiped out as well.  The stunning 2016 result puts an exclamation point on all this. - The Washington Examiner




"For all the gooey talk about President Barack Obama's legacy, it can probably best be described in four blunt words:  Disappointment.  And Donald Trump...Trump.  Donald Trump is Obama's true legacy." - John Kass





“And while it remains to be seen whether or not a President Trump will preside over a resurgent United States of America, both economically and militarily, there is one thing for certain.  Few, except the uneducated and ill-informed among Barack Obama’s die hard supporters, will get misty-eyed watching him walk out of the White House for the last time.  I suspect most Americans will more likely be thinking, ‘don’t let the door hit you on the way out.’” – D.W. Wilber

Martin Luther King Jr. Day

This day should properly be Civil Rights Day:  MLK was a great man, but the civil rights movement didn't begin or end with him. Though he was undoubtedly the most effective and powerful of its leaders. The spirit of this day is the celebration of America's civil rights advances, and as such I am certain Reverend King would agree such a day should honor all of those who ignited and forwarded the civil rights cause.

I'm also quite certain Reverend King would be disgusted by many of the modern pretenders who have disgraced his legacy by claiming to carry the banner of MLK (Jackson, Sharpton, etc.)...He would be especially disgusted by the white, race-baiting clowns who use race as a tool to forward Leftism.

For those who don't know, some of the other great civil rights leaders are: Rosa ParksJackie RobinsonMartin Luther King Jr., Frederick DouglasGeorge Washington CarverSojournor Truth. (click the links to read about each)

Dr. King's dream today a nightmare
By Mychal Massie
Originally Posted @ World Net Daily

Jan. 15, 2007 (now Jan. 16, 2017), is the annual commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Signs, posters, radio/TV ads and the all-inclusive holiday sale will remind us that it's time for America, as a nation, to remember the injustices he fought.

Preachers will preach special sermons, teachers will have special lesson plans, and politicians, coupled with the usual colliers of immiseration, will pose for photo-ops. All will reference how he fought for the freedom, equality and dignity of blacks. There will be marches, chants and choruses of "we shall overcome" – all of which will be carefully designed and presented to omit the fact that we have "overcame" [sic].

Sadly, but certainly not unexpectedly, Dr. King's day of national commemoration has devolved into a day of misrepresentation of what he actually stood for: "blame the white capitalistic system" in general, "white conservatives" specifically, and "immiseration rallies" ad nauseum. I submit it is time to honor his memory in truth and honesty. I am long since wearied of the dissociative falsities surrounding his life and words.

Speaking of his life – it is enough to say he put it on the line, literally, every day. He didn't retreat – he didn't apologize. He didn't distort the truth – he instead offered it up for America and the world to see. Presentation of the undiluted truth was a sulfuric colonic to the racist elements of his day. It was reality TV before islands, desperate wives and trying to impress casino owners.

Dr. King didn't need to invent injustice – being denied the right to vote, eat, purchase and live where he chose didn't need inventing. Same was the zeitgeist of his environs. Beatings, fire hoses and attack dogs in the hands of the hate-filled didn't need embellishing – it needed only to be seen every night on the evening news for the conscience of America to demand change.

Truth can be denied by the darkness of hatred and by the recalcitrant, but it can never be disproved, nor can it ultimately be diminished. But some forms of truth are less transpicuous than others, thus the reason uninformed and uneducated people are so easily misled.

While there are any number of scholarly positions that would be open to cogent and reasoned debate were Dr. King still alive, what is not open for debate are his position on segregation, be it codified or self-imposed, or his position on drinking from the cup of bitterness and resentment that so many blissfully imbibe from today. And when we read:

"In the process of gaining our rightful place, we must not be guilty of wrongful deeds. Let us not seek to satisfy our thirst for freedom by drinking from the cup of bitterness and hatred.

"We must forever conduct our struggles on the high plane of dignity and discipline. We must not allow our creative protest to degenerate into physical violence...The marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community must not lead us to distrust of all white people, for many of our white brothers…realize that their destiny is tied up with our destiny and their freedom is inextricably bound to our freedoms..."

It gives us some indication of what he may have thought or said to the Jacksons, Sharptons, Farrakhans or Julian Bonds of today. Who cares to speculate per his opinion of the National Urban League president, Mark Morial, who praised Planned Parenthood as a "good organization," even though the Ugandan parasite, Idi Amin, murdered fewer Africans during his entire bloodthirsty reign than the number of black babies Planned Parenthood casually murders annually with the blessing of so-called black leadership.

What would he say of his dream today – when we examine the devastating effect personal and social irresponsibility has had on the black family? We can but wonder how he would feel about black gangs, drugs, educational largesse, generational welfare and the damning results of the Great Society Initiative.

Perhaps instead of preening for photo-ops, the feckless fantasia called liberal politicians and black leadership would better spend their time trying to remember exactly what Dr. King's dream was – because their version of same more closely resembles the nightmare of nocturnal occlusion.

Trump's Cabinet

The Senate confirmation process has begun for soon-to-be President Trump's cabinet nominees and other appointments - an amazing bunch of men and women.  Nominees and appointees everyone who isn't a Liberal Loon should be happy with...I admit I am ecstatic about them.  A very pleasant surprise.

The best part of this process is Trump is going to get ALL of his nominees confirmed!!!!  And there isn't much the Democrats can do to stop them, because they rigged the process in 2013 when they changed the filibuster rules by invoking the 'Nuclear Option'...It used to be nominees could be filibustered - refused - if they couldn't get 60 Senators to agree to put the nominee to a final vote - a simple majority.  That was before the Senate Democrats changed the rules:  forever known as 'The Reid Rule,' in honor of former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

They were so excited and pleased with themselves.


“There’s no question that we will one day come to regret this.” - Maria Cardona (Democrat strategist 2013)

Reid and the Democrats didn't break any rules changing the process from 60 to 51, because any Senate rule not directly governed by the Constitution can be changed by the majority at any time.  Which has been done many times in American history...The Democrats figured 2013 was a good time, and made this change because they thought they'd be in control forever.  They believed the 'arc of history' had permanently bent towards their ideology, and changed the rules to pursue their wants.

We've all heard the saying, 'What's good for the goose, is good for the gander.' There's another version of this saying:  "What's good for the Democrats, is good for the Republicans.'

Republicans now have control of the Senate and the confirmation process...And guess what they are keeping?  They are keeping the Reid Rule!  Especially now that they have a leader - Trump - who isn't afraid of fighting just as hard and dirty as Liberals fight.

“I say to my friends on the other side of the aisle, you’ll regret this...And you may regret it a lot sooner than you think.” - Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (immediately after the Democrats changed the rule)

Here's hoping Trump and the Senate Republicans beat the dog out of the Democrats with this rule, and not only get every Trump cabinet nominee and appointee in place, but also use it to get many federal court judges he will pick on the bench.

Oh, and lets not forget there is a Supreme Court position to fill.  A position the Democrats have vowed to block unless Trump nominates someone they like - meaning a Liberal...And there is no way he's going to do that, so the Democrats are looking to do a FOREVER FILIBUSTER of Trump's SCOTUS nominee.

It's hard to believe when it comes to Democrats, Joe Biden is the 'adult in the room.'


Donald Trump is going to be President of the United States - no matter how many tantrums Liberals throw.  He was elected with the full knowledge he was going to change D.C. and bring in Conservatives, military people and business professionals... The American people kicked Hillary Clinton and her Liberal ideology to the curb.  As such, Trump should be allowed to fulfill his promises and put the people in place around him he wants to form a government, and fill the courts with those he wants.

When it comes to the Supreme Court, the Democrats should be informed the Reid Rule can become the McConnell Corollary to The Reid Rule - meaning, if they want to forever keep Trump from filling the court spot, Leader McConnell will change the rules with 51 votes to include SCOTUS nominees to the Reid Rule.

Hey Democrats!  You are going to reap what you have sown!  SUCK IT!!!!
