So…now the ‘elite’ National Review is out to down the Donald Trump excitement. Ted Cruz has got Glenn Beck to go out and try to bash him as a candidate…the heat is on.
Donald supporters are being beaten to a pulp saying… YOU PEOPLE are stupid! He’s not conservatives!
Frankly, we don’t care. The mere fact that they have gathered together and went to bombast him, shows you that THEY are part of the problem: on the Rino (talk talk talk) money wagon. THEY are all part of the established, “We all make very good money talking conservative, but making sure nothing happens, but at least we feel good about ourselves” category.
You know what we see with Glenn Beck and Ted Cruz? We see two guys, who by all accounts are very successful, (richer than you are me and certainly more powerful now) go out to eat the obvious choice of the people.
We are taking names boys. It’s not the first time we are let down, and it won’t be the last.
Remember, as noble as it was for Ted Cruz to stand alone time after time against Obama, NOBODY but Rand Paul stood with him. He lost every time, and he would lose the election. What good is being the purest and truest voice in the world if only a handful stands with you at the moment you need them the most?
The GOP conservatives have stood aside while our Constitution was decimated. It’s gone. Now, we the people are fighting for our lives out here…you’re all great talkers, but no action. For all the good intentions of all the good conservatives in Congress and the blogs, and the Notational Review, nothing they ever did meant a hill of beans to any of us.
But…then again, maybe that’s what you want…to be NEEDED. Did you learn that from the democrats?
So…let’s remind them shall we, why the American people are flocking to Donald Trump. I read this paragraph in Coulter’s excellent book, Adios America!
Here’s just a small BIT of the government waste, due to illegal immigration, that our politicians do nothing about, and NEVER mention. And that includes ALL conservatives…all of them.
Here are some results of fraud by illegal’s done here at taxpayers cost…

Donald is right: The American people are being raped by illegal’s, by their politicians, by ISIS, and no amount of talk is going to save us, unless we get a tough guy to take over.
Donald will not fail. I heard Brent Bozell say that Trump is a narcissist.
And Obama isn’t? Really? Seriously?
The American people know, that Donald Trump is an American. He says what needs to be said.
If he gets elected than the National Review can blame itself…for endorsing the wrong ‘rich’ boys for so many years.
Nobody Thinks the anger that is being thrown at Donald Trump is proof, of why he SHOULD be President.
Rush Limbaugh is right: All of them would vote for Hillary rather than see Trump become President.
And that’s your answer.
What REAL conservative would do that? Not one.
Yes! We DID win tonight! Nothing that I could write today would even match this great speech by Sarah Palin.
When I first heart it, I was going “YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!” ...even tearing up.
Compare the words of this great American to Hillary Clinton’s boring speeches.
It was a masterpiece of moves by Donald Trump, and great timing for Sarah to come out and put the great love that she has for America right smack in the eye of the media.
Everybody saw this: And EVERYBODY in the media, you can bet your next empty Wal-Mart Parking lot, were all told to act as if it was…oh…nothing. Really. Not much. No big deal.
Both Fox news, and CNN, immediately acted as if it was…so boring.
HA. It was only one of the most brilliant political speeches ever given before a primary. What? You think we’re stupid?
Michael Moore just said that he thought it was a comedy show, and that the democrats will win because the white man in America now makes up only 19 percent of the population: (He makes up a good 15 percent of them.)
The second time I watched this…I was incredibly moved by a courageous woman, who has been so unmercifully attacked by everyone, and has gone through so much, and yet she comes out fighting..to her last breath.
Tell me she doesn’t LOVE her country. Go ahead. Tell me.
Ted Cruz supporters…you might want to re-think your positions….
So…Thank you Sarah Palin…now…go out and help Donald…smash the elites that control this great country, and give it back to us. Vote for Trump! Get rid of those Chumps!
We know they are going to start attacking you again…why it’s already started, your son is a woman abuser and a gun-toting danger to the world.
We know the game Sarah. We know the game. We KNOW what they put you through.
One more note: Carly Fiona might be able to say quick and clever things about Hillary…but she is NO match for Sarah Palin when it comes to sheer passion.
Somewhere, Hillary Clinton, Jeb Bush, and John McCain…are fuming.
Okay, I’ll shut up…if you haven’t seen this..don’t miss it!
I’d say, it’s probably the best speech she has ever given in her life…in substance, in love, in just pure American passion. God bless Sarah Palin.
(And Leo, I’d stay away from her. One mauling is enough.)
Nobody Gets Email:
The media doesn’t talk about it much, but its the older people who usually turn out to vote in every election. Here’s a wonderful email being sent around…that most of us in the “older” category can relate to and applaud.
(Thanks to mademere)
The typical U.S. household headed by a person age 65 or older has a net worth 47 times greater than a household headed by someone under 35, according to an analysis of census data released Monday. They like to refer to us as senior citizens, old fogies, geezers, and in some cases dinosaurs. Some of us are “Baby Boomers” getting ready to retire. Others have been retired for some time. We walk a little slower these days and our eyes and hearing are not what they once were. We worked hard, raised our children, worshiped our God and have grown old together. Yes, we are the ones some refer to as being over the hill, and that is probably true. But before writing us off completely, there are a few things that need to be taken into consideration.
In school we studied English, history, math, and science, which enabled us to lead America into the technological age. Most of us remember what outhouses were, many of us with firsthand experience. We remember the days of telephone party-lines, 25 cent gasoline, and milk and ice being delivered to our homes. For those of you who don’t know what an icebox is, today they are electric and referred to as refrigerators. A few even remember when cars were started with a crank. Yes, we lived those days. We are probably considered old-fashioned and outdated by many. But there are a few things you need to remember before completely writing us off.
We won World War II, fought in Korea and Viet Nam. We can quote The Pledge of Allegiance, and know where to place our hand while doing so. We wore the uniform of our country with pride and lost many friends on the battlefield. We didn’t fight for the Socialist States of America; we fought for the “Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave.” We wore different uniforms but carried the same flag. We know the words to the “Star Spangled Banner,” “America,” and “America the Beautiful” by heart, and you may even see some tears running down our cheeks as we sing.
We have lived what many of you have only read in history books and we feel no obligation to apologize to anyone for America . Yes, we are old and slow these days but rest assured, we have at least one good fight left in us.
We have loved this country, fought for it, and died for it, and now we are going to save it. It is our country and nobody is going to take it away from us.
We took oaths to defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic, and that is an oath we plan to keep. There are those who want to destroy this land we love but, like our founders, there is no way we are going to remain silent.
It was mostly the young people of this nation who elected Obama and the Democratic Congress. You fell for the “Hope and Change” which in reality was nothing but “Hype and Lies.” You youngsters have tasted socialism and seen evil face to face, and have found you don’t like it after all. You make a lot of noise, but most are all too interested in their careers or “Climbing the Social Ladder” to be involved in such mundane things as patriotism and voting.
Many of those who fell for the “Great Lie” in 2008 are now having buyer’s remorse. With all the education we gave you, you didn’t have sense enough to see through the lies and instead drank the ‘Kool-Aid.’ Now you’re paying the price and complaining about it; no jobs, lost mortgages, higher taxes, and less freedom. This is what you voted for and this is what you got. We entrusted you with the Torch of Liberty, and you traded it for a paycheck and a fancy house.
Well, don’t worry youngsters, the Grey-Haired Brigade is here, and in 2016 we are going to take back our nation. We may drive a little slower than you would like, but we get where we’re going, and in 2016 we’re going to the polls by the millions. This land does not belong to the man in the White House nor to the likes of Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and Eric Holder. It belongs to “We the People,” and “We the People” plan to reclaim our land and our freedom.
We hope this time you will do a better job of preserving it and passing it along to our grandchildren. So the next time you have the chance to say the Pledge of Allegiance, stand up, put your hand over your heart, honor our country, and thank God for the old geezers of the “Gray-Haired Brigade.” Footnote: This is spot on. I am another Gray-Haired Geezer signing on. I will circulate this to other Gray-Haired Geezers all over this once great county. Can you feel the ground shaking??? It’s not an earthquake, it is a STAMPEDE.
You and I are Members. Don’t Delete. Just Read and Pass it on!!
In God we STILL trust!
I was watching the Kennedy Honors program last night on TV…and is it any wonder why millions of Americans tune into this stuff? Aretha Franklin in a full length mink coat singing “You make me feel like a natural woman” (Obama’s new theme song) and then throwing her mink on the floor…it made me want to call up James Brown on the phone. ..and say.
“Hey, James! Aretha just stole your act! She just up did you one…. You just threw your cape on the ground..Aretha threw her million dollar MINK on the ground! She STOLE your signature move!”
Okay. James is dead. But…it was pretty cool.
Yes, if you want to see the great divide between the rich and the poor, all you had to do was watch the rich elites of the liberal Washington D.C. (no conservatives allowed) put on their finest diamonds, display their million dollar dental work, and celebrate themselves and all their liberal friends.
The Americans stole this idea from the Queen of course. The Kennedy Honors are the American Version of the Queen getting her command performances from various talents to perform for her. One remembers the brilliant line John Lennon’s said when the Beatles first preformed before the Queen:
“Will the people in the cheaper seats just clap your hands, and the rest of you, just rattle your jewelry.” (see video above)
History proves…we THINK things are changing, but they remain ever the same.
The rich rule over us all.
At first, Obama wasn’t there. We got big pictures of the communist Valerie Jarrett sitting next to Queen Michelle. And the first honoree was the much abused Puerto Rican, Rita Moreno, who somehow managed, against GREAT American prejudice and racists odds, to make a very nice living dancing and singing, in America, and probably hanging out with Bill Crosby.
And then there was Steven Spielberg’s tribute to George Lucas…who will NOT get the proceeds from any more Star Wars Laser swords, although, they are still selling stuffed Yoda dolls. George recently called Disney “white slaves” and so you have to wonder WHY Obama didn’t show up until after the Lucas award…it could have been a snub. Probably because Lucas or Spielberg is now supporting Hillary.
And then, it wouldn’t be complete without the Secretary of State, John Kerry, getting to introduce his best bud, James Taylor—
Hopefully the French were watching.
Last night I found out that..surprise…Carol King didn’t write any of the words to her music, her husband did! All these years they let you think she did it all herself.
Yes, the rich were out having a fabulous time at the Kennedy Center being entertained, and then Obama flew off to his Hawaiian vacation:
While all private vacations are paid for in part out of the first family’s own money, taxpayers cover the bulk of the flight cost and all of the cost for Secret Service detail. The most recent data shows that the 2013 Christmas vacation by the Obama family in Hawaii cost taxpayers $8.09 million.
Not a care in the world. Tell me, how much of their own money did they fork out? Nobody Knows.
For the last three days, I have been mopping up water in my basement. People all over St. Louis are out fighting the massive flood waters, many of them losing their homes because most insurance companies do NOT cover flood loss. Tornadoes just devastated Texas…and I thought it rather creepy that a lot of people were killed in the George W. Bush Freeway.
Iran is threatening our battle ships, China is angry, ISIS has camps all across America, and yet, Obama, the King of America, has not a care in the world. The country, it’s roads, it’s infrastructure, it’s people. are falling into a third world abyss, and he is out playing golf, watching movies…Obama is the TOP of the 1 percent..
And yet, you can bet your Aretha Franklin mink that when he gets to his last state of the union speech, all that has happened weather wise in December, will be blamed on ‘global warming.’ None of us will ever know how much of this was a natural event with a dash of weather engineering.
This morning two black ladies named Indiana, and Rose came to my door.
“Good news! The end is coming.” they said, as they handed me their flyers.
“We will soon all be with Jesus.”
I thought to myself …even Jesus could not take me far enough away from Obama.
And on that happy note, I’m taking tomorrow and New Year’s Day off.
Noah…is waiting for me…
….and so, let’s let George Carlin give us the New Year’s Eve Nobody Wins, thoughts for 2016. And forget about 2015 forever more.
It was a hell of a year.
—-How Ronald Reagan became a Republican.
First— let me remind everyone that the story goes, that back when Ronald Reagan was trying to win the Republican nomination, there were the ‘back’ room boys who were trying to prevent it. They told him that he could get the nomination for the Republican party ONLY if he choose H.W. Bush to be his running mate.
H.W. Bush was what was known as a Rockefeller Rino. Reagan had no choice, so he did it. While Reagan took the country to soaring heights, H.W. Bush took America onto it’s New World Order globalist road which has left us where we are today.
Ronald Reagan was the last great beloved ‘conservative’ President that those of us who are conservative, put up as the hero of our political hearts. And so, it’s not surprising that Bill O’Reilly has come out with a book called, Killing Reagan, in which, according to Mark Levine, who used to work for Reagan, is full of lies.
So, since we have sort of the same situation in this political election, I thought it would be a good idea to go back in time and remember how Ronald Reagan, became a republican.
Some of this I got from the book The President’s Club, an excellent book by Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy.
Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan met in 1947, in California. Nixon was a 34-year-old congressmen and Reagan was the 36-year-old new president of the Screen Actors Guild. Reagan was truly concerned at the time about the communist infiltration of his trade union. Remember…Nixon was a conservative republican, and Reagan was an FDR democrat. Nixon got a hold of him because he has set up an investigating committee…so Reagan testified in front of the House Labor Committee which was investigating communist influence in American power centers.
After that short stint they went their ways.
Then Reagan started doing commercials for General Electric, and slowly becoming an anti-government man, and while he was doing that, Nixon became Dwight D. Eisenhower’s VP at the age of 40. Nixon took notice of Reagan who was talking a lot about government waste, so he wrote him a letter:
“I thought you did an excellent job of analyzing our present tax situation. In recent months, I have been greatly encouraged by the apparent trend on the part of the America people to question the tax and tax, spend and spend …elect and elect philosophy. I hope you will have many opportunities to repeat your wise worlds. “
Reagan wrote back:
“Audiences are actually militant in their expression that something must be done…I am convinced there is a ground swell of economic conservatism building up which could reverse the entire tide of present day “statism.” As a matter of fact, we seem to be in one of those rare moments when the America people with that wisdom which is the strength of Democracy are ready to say, ‘Enough.’ “
(Sound familiar? It could be written today.)
Reagan, started writing letters to Nixon…and giving him advice…
“I have a strong feeling that the twenty million non votes in the country just might be conservatives who have cynically concluded the two parties offer no choice between them where fiscal stability is concerned.”
(Again: Does nothing ever change?)
When it came time for Nixon to pick a Vice President…Nixon received a telegram at the Blackstone Hotel in Chicago :
RESPECTFULLY URGE CONSIDERATION GOLDWATER FOR VICE PRESDENT. CANNOT SUPPORT TICKET IF IT INCLUDES ROCKEFELLER. …MR AND MRS RONALD REAGAN.
Reagan did not like the Rockefeller globalist, one-world-government, Rino’s, so Ronald Reagan became the vice chairman of the Southern California Democrats for Nixon.
“As a lifelong Democrat, today I feel no Democrat can ignore that the party has been taken over by a faction which seeks to pattern the Democratic Party and its politics after those of the Labor Socialist government of England. This is no longer the Democratic Party I joined as a young man. “
He gave his support to Nixon over Kennedy, even though Joe tried to get him to change.
Ronald Reagan became a republican one day at a fundraiser on Nixon’s’ behalf near his home in Pacific Palisade, park. Midway through his speech, a woman in the audience stood up and asked Reagan…
“Have you registered as a Republican yet”
“No I haven’t, but I intend to.”
The lady was a local registration official and place the proper form in front of him. Reagan signed it, to the cheers of the audience and then he said.
“Now, where was I?”
And that’s how great men do it.
According to this reporter, the Bush family made it’s fortune on the Nazi war machine. Sure, you might say…that’s nonsense.
They are such NICE guys! That’s just nonsense.
But..this guy presented proof. Now, he comes to the conclusion that they want to dominate the world, and of course, we see Karl Rove on FOX everyday, so…I believe that too. It’s hard not to believe it when they are running for their third ticket to the White House.
I think he has a point…all Jeb Bush talks about is war. Again. BIG war. WWIII. Everybody knows the Bush family RUNS the Republican Party.
The ‘aw shucks’ we’re just good old American Texas boys is just a front.
No matter what you might think of the Bushes, whether they are Nazi’s or not..we DO know that the liberals are communists.
So, what’s our choice? Nazi’s or communists? Good god.
I’ll take Trump.
Watch this…it’s interesting. If nothing else you’ll learn the Bush Family history.
Dick Morris will impress you with his opinions on history…no wonder Bill Clinton wanted him hanging around.
If you, like me, have never given Andrew Johnson much of a thought, this is really interesting.
Enjoy! And excuse me while I go do my Christmas Cards.
YES…I STILL SEND THEM.
Here’s something I didn’t know until yesterday…
Did you know that well before the end of WWII, FDR issued a directive calling for our government to determine whether or not all the bombing we had done in the war had served any purpose? Basically, we bombed the hell out of Germany. We bombed 3.6 million dwelling in Germany alone, leaving 7.5 million people homeless. Like the Sherman scorched earth model of annihilate everything in your sight, it did win the war, but was it necessary?
At first they targeted German aircraft production. But…even though they destroyed the buildings, the Germans just moved the machines and kept on going. Same thing with other factories. They bombed the ball-bearing factories, but the Germans just moved the machines and kept on going. Same with bombing civilian centers, it just gave more resolve to the people.
The study concluded that the ONLY bombing attacks that proved truly effective were those that targeted oil. You just can’t synthesize oil that quickly. Germany was defeated by depriving the Nazi’s of oil, not by bombing its cities.
Now, fast forward to today…and the war in the Middle East. While all the other candidates are talking about putting boots on the ground, and bombing whole cities and camps, only Donald Trump had the right answer. Take out their oil fields.
President George W. Bush should have gotten the oil fields in Iraq. It was Bush’s biggest mistake. It’s now Obama’s mistake because he refuses to bomb the oil tankers that are keeping ISIS in billions of dollars to continue funding this global war that will never end, because he doesn’t want to “spoil” the environment.
But, he did bomb a few trucks carrying some oil we found out today.
Remember, this is a President who doesn’t give a damn about OUR environment, because most of the horrific fires we have been seeing destroying our beautiful forests and national parks in our country out West (not to mention whole neighborhoods) year after year, after year,…have been started mostly by Illegal’s. Notice, not much mention of that on the nightly news.
Oil is still the reason for most of this. The world runs on it, so Donald is right. Putin wants it, Iran wants it, the House of Saud, wants to keep the Kingdom on top.
And by the way, we have an endless supply of it right here in America. BUT OUR POLITICIANS WON’T TOUCH IT. Why? The fossil fuel theory is a myth…oil is a natural commodity of the earth, it’s everywhere. (Read Black Gold Stranglehold by Jerome R. Corsi and Craig R. Smith.)
And that is one of the reasons Donald Trump is being attacked by just about everybody in power.
BUT…the Rino’s continue to support their almost diabolical relationship with the Saudi Kings. Evidently they keep the world’s oil dealing in the dollar, and we fight their wars.(and promise never to compete with our own oil production) …but it’s getting old this FDR contract, isn’t it?
Donald would end the war much quicker than everybody else. He would bomb ISIS’s main money machine.
So, next time you hear all about the great bombing runs being done by France, England, and us, remember, they already know it’s meaningless. …unless of course the goal is to bring as many homeless Muslims into the West.
Then, it makes perfect sense.
If you watched ‘President’ Obama’s speech last night, given on the Eve of the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor, it was obvious that the speech was given for only one reason:
Himself. Obama might as well be on Mars. Once again, he came out to basically scold us, and give us another one of his meaningless BS speeches.
He wanted to reiterate that he has done a good job as President..the first part being all about how he has protected us all, and also that the last attack on our soil was not actually from ISIS. Which, according to many, is a flat out lie. The rest of the speech showed his anger..at the American people, for not accepting in his eyes, Islam and Muslims in America, who he feels in the deepest of his hearts, are being unfairly ostracized by everybody that lives here.
The man is SICK.
Never mind that the majority of Islamic Muslims have no intentions of becoming Americans. Obama is angry at his own country, as Americans stare in disbelief that their own President has gone out of his mind.
Yes, Obama is more dangerous right now, than he has ever been. Obama has decimated our military to such a point, you can bet they aren’t even going to tell you how bad it is.
He did it on purpose. Which brings us to FDR..and the many facts that have been found out since that horrible day. While many of us were told that FDR was one of the greatest US presidents, may men, after years of research, are letting out the reality that Pearl Harbor was a black flag event, a ‘sacrifice’ to get us into the war.
This from The Myth of Pearl Harbor:
On October 7, 1940, one of Roosevelt’s military advisors, Lieutenant Commander Arthur McCollum, wrote a memo detailing an 8-step plan that would provoke Japan into attacking the United States. Over the next year, Roosevelt implemented all 8 of the recommended actions.
As with recent wars, it all boiled down to oil. In the summer of 1941, the US joined England in an oil embargo against Japan. Japan needed oil for its war with China, and had no remaining option but to invade the East Indies and Southeast Asia to get new resources. And that required getting rid of the US Pacific Fleet first.
Although Roosevelt may have got more than he bargained for, he clearly let the attack on Pearl Harbor happen, and even helped Japan by making sure their attack was a surprise. He did this by withholding information from Pearl Harbor’s commanders, and even by ensuring the attack force wasn’t accidentally discovered by commercial shipping traffic. As Rear Admiral Richmond K. Turner stated in 1941: “We were prepared to divert traffic when we believed war was imminent. We sent the traffic down via the Torres Strait, so that the track of the Japanese task force would be clear of any traffic.”
Speaking as someone who has personally stood on the USS Arizona Memorial and watched the oil still leaking from the wreckage, I can say that the Pearl Harbor Attack was one of the greatest false flag operations of all time.
America now has ISIS within its borders.
More guns were sold on Black Friday (200,000) this year than any other day in our history, and that’s the good news:
The bad is: Obama is really angry…at us.
I have just gotten home from my yearly Thanksgiving dinner at my son’s house. It was just the four of us, my husband and I, plus my son and his girlfriend, plus one, my old friend Pattie. Pattie has had a rough time the last few winters. She has lost her husband, then her mother, then her father….nobody should be alone on the Holidays. I pretty much insisted that she come to our dinner, which was much like trying to get a squirrel to take a bath. But she gave in.
Everything was going well, until, my son, trying to pick the right moment, told us all that his whole company had been laid off, even his boss. He had maybe one more week’s paycheck and then he would be back to being unemployed. Luckily, he already has a job interview lined up, but nothing is ever sure in this world. It’s a GM dealership, one of the biggest in North County (Where the famous Ferguson resides.) and it was only a matter of time before it closed. It’s bad timing because he was just starting to get back on his feet, and we all agreed at dinner, best not talk about it.
Everyone tried to be cheerful, but it’s never easy, when the news is filled with stress and worry.
As we drove down the street coming back home, the streets were full of parked cars, families visiting, eating…and I wondered to myself, how many other families had gotten bad news? I have noticed that my one neighbors, who always have their Christmas manger scene out first, are not at home much anymore. Their house was dark. It’s a good white family. (Sorry, I am counting the whites from now on.) Three kids, two grandkids. He had told me recently that sometimes he has had to work three jobs, one as far away as Texas. Yes, he drives to Texas to keep the family afloat. He would drive home on the weekends.
This is starting to be the norm in many parts of America. But the news is always, “HEY! The economy is doing good!”
Now, they just lie.
Pattie and I, were watching reruns of the Thanksgiving Parade, and stated talking. We have known each other since high school, and we started talking about how many businesses have been lost in St. Louis in our lifetime. The whole city has changed. Like the once great city of Detroit, the businesses here, have been destroyed, by unions, by globalism, by greed and corrupt politicians.
What’s left in jobs? Government jobs. Health care jobs. “Service” jobs. That’s about it.
On our way home, I didn’t even recognized some of the old neighborhoods. All changed. Not for the better either.
Getting home is always good after a big Turkey dinner. After getting the dogs out, I went and turned on our Christmas lights out in the front of the house, I didn’t really want to write, because the future, not only for our family, but for the whole country looks bleak. And what makes it especially hard to take, is it doesn’t have to be that way. Sure, our economy is destroyed pretty much for all but those who are lucky enough to have the few good jobs, but more than that, our spirit is broken.
As I turn on the TV, FOX was doing a PR piece on the Bush Family. The nation is tired of the Bushes, and I thought, OH good god. They had our lives, as did the Clinton’s, and they did…nothing. Nothing. I really didn’t like Daddy Bush, I grew to be really disappointed in George W., and Jeb…stop it. Jeb isn’t going to get my son a job. He isn’t going to help us in any way. He will help, the Hispanics.
I’m starting to hate all of them. The Bushes think that just because none of the men were horn dogs in office, America should want them.
Wrong. We remember. Sorry Brit Hume, I can turn you off.
Once upon a time, even in my life, if a person worked hard, and was decent, and honest, he had a chance at the American dream….and the globalists (Clinton’s AND Bushes) have taken it away.
So, I get mad. Then I get sad. When I get sad, I read.
I went into my old closet full of books to look for some bit of history, and I found a book I really didn’t even know I had…it was even autographed. Who knows where I got it? Some book sale somewhere.
It was a book released in 2000, by Donald Trump:
The America We Deserve
Yes…guess what? Donald Trump has been wanting to run for the Presidency since 2000. Who knew?
So, I turned off the almost nauseating propaganda piece on the Bush Dynasty, being broadcasted to the whole nation on Thanksgiving Night, for god’s sake, (We’ll probably get the rerun on Christmas Day) and I picked up the book, and read a few pages.
I wanted to share with you an excerpt from The American We Deserve.(Page 27)
It’s time to look around and its tie for all of us who care about the American Dream to change the political buzz from happy talk to straight talk. Here’s the bottom line: If a policy threatens the American Dream, we need to go after it.
I’m going to shoot straight about terrorism and about the foreign threat. I’m going to talk plain about the economy and how to keep the system solid at the core. If we do that, then we can ride out any storm. I’m also going to talk about Social Security. I’m lucky enough not to have to worry about getting A Social Security check, but most American do and they’re right to be worried about their futures.
And he goes on about the kids, and ends the chapter with this:
I’m not worried about whether or not the intellectual/journalist /political establishment thinks I’ve got the stuff to talk about saving the American Dream. I believe in the American Dream. My business experience shows me that it works, and I want to do everything possible to see that regular Americans can enjoy the same opportunity for success and security that I have had. That means the American Dream unencumbered by bureaucratic ineptitude, government regulation, confiscatory tax politics, racism, discrimination against women, or discrimination against people based on sexual orientation.
We must all have equal access to the American Dream. It’s a dream we deserve and a dream worth fighting for.
And he wrote this in 2000.
I SWEAR to you, I had no idea that I had this in my closet. But I really needed something tonight to keep me from the hopelessness of what seems an ever ending series of political disasters making everyone’s life miserable. I happen to think God just plopped that book in front of me, as a sign, not to lose hope.
I can’t say, after seeing the entranced and powerful people coming at to destroy Trump, that even if elected, he would be able to pull of the miracle of trying to undo the damage that the Bushes, the Clinton’s and the Obama’s have done.
But…like tonight, I know deep in my heart the only answer is to have hope.
There ARE good people in the world.
And once in a while, miracles do happen. Sometimes in history, great men do make a difference.
Donald, I’m all in.
If a man can keep a dream that long, then he is truly, the real thing.
I only pray that the nation can hold on long enough to survive, until he can get into office.
Can Donald make America great again?
He is the ONLY one who wants to do it for us. For the Americans.
And we all know, who we are.
On Veterans Day, I was reading about what was probably the darkest moment in the American Revolution. It was late September 1777. The Brits controlled New York, and the Americans had lost Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York that July. In Delaware on September 11, George Washington lost the Battle of Brandywine: 200 Americans were killed, 500 wounded, and 400 captured. In Pennsylvania, on September 21, another 300 Americans were killed or wounded and 100 captured, in the Paoli Massacre. Washington’s army had been walking in the rain, and their ammunition was soaked and useless. At Valley Forge, 1,000 of Washington’s 9,000 troops were shoe less, and left bloody footprints in the snow. They lived on flour and water.
The British captured Philadelphia on September 26, and the Congress had to flee for their lives. Of the fifty-six who had signed the Declaration, only twenty remained as they gathered for a private meeting in York.
It was their darkest hour. John Adams remarked “The prospect is chilling, on every Side. Gloomy, dark, melancholy, and dispiriting.”
But Sam Adams, who was there, gave the speech everyone needed to hear:
From Samuel Adams, A Life, by Ira Stool (p. 3)
One of those present was John Adams’s cousin, the patriot leader Samuel Adams. His first wife and four of their children died of natural causes before the war began. At the Battle of Bunker Hill, British officers decapitated Samuel Adam’s close friend Joseph Warren and presented his head as a trophy to the British commanding general. Samuel Adams had spent the better part of three years at the Congress in Philadelphia separated from his two surviving children and his second wife. “Matters seem to be drawing to a crisis.” he had written her recently. Back in Boston, the British soldiers ripped out the pews of Old South Church, where Samuel Adams’ father had once worshiped, covered the floor with dirt, and used the church as a riding academy. Samuel Adam’s own house in Boston was vandalized by British troops so badly that it was uninhabitable. If the Revolutions failed, Samuel Adams could expect to meet the same fate at the hands of the British as Warren.
Yet on that day in York in late September 1777, Samuel Adams, a slightly heavy, gray haired fifty- five- year-old with large dark blue eyes, a prominent nose, and a high forehead, gave his fellow member so Congress a talk of encouragement.
“If we despond, public confidence is destroyed, the people will no longer yield their support to a hopeless contest and American liberty is no more, ” Samuel Adams said in the voice John Adams described as clear and harmonious. “
“Through the darkness which shrouds our prospects the ark of safety is visible. Despondency becomes not the dignity of our cause, nor the character of those who are its supporters.”
Sam went on :
“Let us awaken then, and evince a different spirit,—a spirit that shall inspire the people with confidence in themselves and in us, —a spirit that will encourage them to perseveres in this glorious struggle, until their rights and liberties shall be establish on a rock. We have proclaimed to the world our determination “to die freemen, rather than to live slaves.” We have appealed to Heaven for the justice of our cause, and in Heaven we have placed out trust. Numerous have been the manifestations of God’s providence in sustaining us. In the gloomy period of adversity, we have had “our cloud by day and pillar of fire by night.” We have been reduced to distress, and the arm of Omnipotence has raised us up. Let us still rely in humble confidence on Him who is mighty to save, Good tidings will soon arrive. We shall never be abandoned by Heaven while we act worthy of its aid and protection. “
And that’s the key isn’t it? Are we WORTHY of God’s aid and protection? Sam was.
For those of us who have no clue what they go through every single day…..all we can do is thank GOD we have men and women who give their all for America.
God Bless them, and their families.
I remember how excited I was the day I finished reading David McCollough’s biography of John Adams. I was even more excited when Tom Hanks brought his book to life in an HBO series. So you can imagine how surprised I was to hear a different version of history about John Adams and Thomas Jefferson last night on Mark Levine’s show. This historian, Jon Meacham, gave Jefferson all the glory and made John Adams out to be the stupid one when it came to Barbary pirates.
Funny, I thought—- that’s not how David McCullough reported it.
The author, Jon Meacham, was promoting his new book called Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power.
From School Library Journal
Grade 9 Up–An honest look at Jefferson’s life, accomplishments, and inconsistencies. Bernstein does not gloss over his subject’s flaws and the controversies that surrounded him. The contradictions between Jefferson’s beliefs and his behavior, while exposing his human side, are not used to denigrate him or to diminish his accomplishments
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY The New York Times Book Review • The Washington Post • Entertainment Weekly • The Seattle Times • St. Louis Post-Dispatch • Bloomberg Businessweek
(Notice it’s the liberal media that loves it.)
Mr. Meacham made it sound like, it was Jefferson that stood up to the Barbary Pirates, against the wishes of John Adams. It wasn’t that he was wrong, it was the way he was presenting Jefferson as being so much wiser than John, and leaving out the particulars that was annoying.
To sum it up, in order for America to be able to use the shipping lanes in the Mediterranean, back in the early days of our country, they had to ‘pay’ the Sultan of Tripoli for safe passage. The Sultan, Abdrahaman, wanted more than Congress was willing to give, even though both France and Britain were already paying them. Jefferson had gone to Paris to help John negotiate with them.
(This bribery has NOT changed in all these years)
From John Adams (p. 352)
From Philadelphia, John Jay sent instructions to negotiate with the Barbary States. Funds were made available by Congress up to $80,000. But Adams and Jefferson had not money at hand. When Jefferson inquired whether Adams might borrow again from the Dutch, and reported that French officers in Paris were angry over not having been paid what they were due for services in the Revolution, Adams was helpless to do anything.
Remember, John Adams got a loan from the Dutch, (and he did this all by himself without the help of any of his ‘friends’ in Congress) so that George Washington could then go on with his battles and win the Revolutionary war. Without that loan, the war might have been lost.
From John Adams (P. 366)
In an exchange of letters between London and Paris , meantime, he and Jefferson considered the question of whether to pay tribute to the Barbary pirates or wage war with them. Jefferson recommend war as more honorable and proposed that an American fleet be built. Adams agreed in principle and promised, “I will go all lengths with you in promoting a navy.” Like Jefferson, he detested any prospect of paying bribes. But given that there was no American navy at present and that it would be years most likely before Congress voted such a resolution, Adams though it sensible to pay the money. “We ought not fight them at all, unless we determine to fight them forever” he told Jefferson who willingly deferred to Adam’s judgment. Later in January 1787, they would sign a pact with Morocco, whereby the Unites States, like France and Britain agreed to pay for protection.
Then Meacham, went on to give Jefferson the credit for building the Navy, at least I thought that’s what he said. I couldn’t believe it. Did I just hear that? All throughout McCullough’s book, Jefferson is seen hiding out on Monticello throughout the revolution…it was Adams that built that Navy.
When he became President, Adams asked Congress for the funds, and a bill for a ‘provisional army’ was passed.
From John Adams (p. 501)
The rebirth of the navy the ‘wooden walls’ he wanted above all for defense of the country, and a new Department of the Navy, separate from the War Department were his pride and joy.
Add to that the fact that when Jefferson became President, he disbanded much of our military, (typical democrat) and so, when the British invaded again in the war of 1812, it was Jefferson’s own fault, the country was unprotected. Adams begged him not to.
John Meacham, was obviously, making a not so accurate picture of Jefferson…the father of the democratic party. Jon is now helping Daddy Bush polish up the history of his son with 41’s new biography.
It’s easy enough to explain: Jon Meacham has connections to all the right people…many of them ‘progressives’ and who know to twist words, and report the right propaganda to affect the nation and the voters.
David McCullough is his own man.
Jon Meacham is executive editor and executive vice president at Random House. He is a former editor-in-chief of Newsweek, a contributing editor to Time Magazine, editor-at-large of WNET, and a commentator on politics, history, and religious faith in America. He won the 2009 Pulitzer Prize for Biography or Autobiography for his work American Lion: Andrew Jackson in the White House. en.wikipedia.org
It’s an election year…the democrats LOVE to bring out Thomas Jefferson, FDR, and the Kennedy’s and polish their stars.
It wasn’t too long after this that I hear ANOTHER biography on the great genius of FDR just came out. Propaganda to get the masses into voting for the RIGHT progressive, whether it be a Bush, or a Clinton.
And as my mother always said, when in life, most times it’s always wise to ‘consider the source.” When it comes to historians, it’s best to check who they are ‘associated” with.
That’s where you will usually find the truth.
Did we NEED another biography of Thomas Jefferson? No. But, it’s an election year…EVERYBODY is writing books.
