I’m guessing when all is said and done, folks will be looking at the past week as one of the fines, and most important, weeks of Donald Trump’s presidency (I still love the ring of that. I could list all the accomplishments myself, but fortunately Larry Schweikert has already done that. Shall we start?

1) When you start to hear hysterical ABC/CNN/MSNBC “news,” take a nap. You’ll find an hour later they are all lies, and usually 180 degrees opposite of what you went to sleep thinking they were.

2) Let’s start with the lying ABC report, which we now know referred to “candidate” Trump when Trump had already been elected and was entitled to the information.

3) But, gee, Trump knew this hence his Tweet. But notice that he WAITED until ABC had lied to provide the info.

4) Flynn’s plea deal frees him to fully discuss crimes he was ordered to commit under Zero. Hearing from one source that in fact much of his testimony to Mulehead (i.e., Robert Mueller) involved Zero (i.e., Barack Obama).

5) I never thought it possible to get Zero. Ever. I thought Cankles (i.e., Hillary Clinton) was a long shot. Now, it seems both are quite possible.

6) Flynn will prove to be the biggest self detonating bomb the left ever went after.

7) Meanwhile, I look at the “Explorer” front page today—usually awash with liberal garbage stories. The TOP FIVE were all good news for Trump.

8) In one week, Trump got another Circuit Court judge (3 more judges coming next week); got the tax cut bill;

9) Announced moving the US embassy in Israel to Jerusalem; announced the end of net neutrality; charged Kate Steinle’s killer; announced a probe into the former Pentagon’s handling of whistleblowers under Zero; had another D resign; had Conyers REFUSE to resign . . .

10) which means (Minnesota senator Al) Franken MUST resign because Conyers is caught red handed; had an open investigation into the Congressional slush fund; saw the stock market soar (and recover from the ABC tank move); saw Flat Liar (i.e., Matt Lauer) resign from NBC; saw Judge Moore dramatically surge in AL;

11) saw Yertle (Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell) admit they won’t try to stop Moore from being seated; saw Trump say “MERRY CHRISTMAS” and acknowledge GOD five times in his Christmas speech.

12) Folks, this was the single biggest week of Trump’s presidency since the election.

13) GDP was revised up to 3.3, and after Reconciliation, I think in the near term 5% GDP is highly likely and 7% (yes, 7) possible.

14) Two of the largest international shippers has announced purchase of EIGHTEEN giant container ships. I don’t know where they are to be built but…

15) This is a stunning testimony to where international business thinks the world economy is heading.

16) Yellen said the economic indicators are very strong; separate analysis says 8/10 top economies in world growing

17) Martin Feldstein in Journal of Economic Perspectives says we have been seriously undervaluing assets & production for 20 years in a new study (which partially explains why no high inflation).

18) In short, Trump’s economic policy changes are putting the US surfboard right inside the pipeline of the biggest economic boom since 1945.

19) Voter registration data continues to show Ds losing ground in 12 of 15 battleground states, and these changes are NOT being picked up by pollsters who use 2012 models (still).

20) By passing tax cuts, Congress has assured that the R seats are safe, while some D seats (Manchin, Heitkamp) are more vulnerable than ever.

21) In short, one helluva great week for Trump and, with the exception of the Steinle verdict—which will be rectified—for America

I can’t wait to see what happens next week. Honestly, electing Trump as president means every week is like Christmas Eve – you can’t wait to see what’s going to happen and what part of the Washing D.C. swap will start getting drained!

A few thoughts on the Trump presidency and all things political to date on an unseasonably warm late November weekend:

…I can’t believe I’m reading this in a National Review column. I mean, these guys have been the biggest bunch of “Never Trumpers” on the right. I have always believed that, sooner or later, the sheer power and audacity of President Trump to keep hammering his message over the media’s heads and to the people were going to cause even folks on the right who have previously had nothing to do with him to come around, even grudgingly.

…and on the very same day this as well. Anytime you’ve got National Review offering up grudging respect you know the resistance of even the hardest “Never Trumpers” is starting to wane.

…Which tells me that the same must be true even in the back halls of Congress. At some point, even they have to realize that Trump is an unstoppable force that isn’t going away any time soon. Folks can speculate all they want about 2020, but that race is still two years away and by that time Trump is going to have one heck of a record to run on. The media can trash him 24/7 all they want, but folks can see for themselves what’s going on around them. If the economy continues to improve, if “The Wall” is getting built, and if Congress passes meaningful tax, healthcare, and immigration reform it’s hard to see what Democrats have as a platform to run against him in 2020. Being anti-Trump simply for the sake of it? A $15 minimum wage? Don’t make me laugh. But right now that’s all they have.

…never mind the fact that I think you’re going to see YUUUGE developments take place in the Middle East. Wouldn’t surprise me that a Saudi and Egypt-led alliance against Iran also results in a peace treaty that results in a peace treaty between Israel and the Palestinians. And who knows, maybe, ultimately, the creation of a Palestinian state committed to Israel’s existence. Don’t laugh, things are moving very fast these days – especially as far as Saudi Arabia is concerned, and it’s all because of the President, the people he has put in place, and his strong commitment to America’s allies who see a return to America as a force for good in the world. The days of Barack Hussein Obama apologizing for what this country stands for are over; the world has never seen a force like this President who says what he thinks and acts on what he says.

…Granted, all the above is making a lot of assumptions, and everything could go to sh*t faster than you can say, “Al Franken breast-grabber”, but right now it seems to me that, at some point, the whole Russia collusion thing is going to be replaced by a myriad of sexual allegations that will rock Congress to the core. It has to – I mean, you know in your heart this kind of thing has been going on and has been swept under the rug ever since sexual predators like Ted Kennedy and Connecticut senator Chris Dodd roamed the hallways of the Senate. And while Congress is smoldering in the wreckage of many resignations, the Trump administration will keep moving forward as a force continually to be reckoned with.

…which is why it’s hard to see Democrats nominating any man – I don’t care what his qualifications are – for President in 2020. It will be an all-woman ticket and a strategy that is bound to fail. Oh, you’ll get all the same “blue” states that Hillary got in 2016, but does anyone truly think any state that voted for Donald Trump is going to switch simply because someone like California senator Kamala Harris or Oprah or even Michelle Obama is running? Ain’t gonna happen.

…and besides, I guarantee you that with their clamp-downs on voter registration fraud both New Hampshire and Minnesota will go “red” as they would have done last year without the fraud.

…Finally, as far as the 2018 mid-terms go, it’s really all going to come down to two factors: 1) incumbent Republicans coming to embrace President Trump’s agenda for fear of being primaried, and 2) the ability of Democrats to get out ‘the Resistance” and swamp those Republican incumbents with their sheer energy. I’m not sure the latter is going to happen in all but the bluest of states and congressional districts, but we’ll see.

…If Judge Roy Moore wins in Alabama it will be an absolute shock to the system. Not to mention Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s future. All things being equal between now and December 11, I think Moore wins and McConnell is in big trouble. It would be an awesome thing to see.

November 17, 2017

Look, I know it’s November: back home in New England, the fall is descending darkly into winter, the landscape is turning bleak and gray, the air is crisp, and the wind swirls dead leaves across the woods and pavement. Perfect weather for a witch hunt, wouldn’t you say? And it’s a Salem-esque kind of witch hunt that’s happening across the American popular and political landscape these days, snagging Hollywood producers, actors, politicians, and Senate candidates from California to Washington, D.C. and any number of places in between.

Yep it seems as if no matter where you turn, some accuser is coming out of the woodwork pointing a crooked finger at yet another celebrity or politician. And no one is immune – former prez George H.W. Bush is accused of pinching fannies. Judge Roy Moore from Alabama? Why, he’s a creep with a fancy for teenage chicks when he was in his thirties. Charlie Sheen, young boys. George Takei, young men. Same thing with Kevin Spacey. Senator Al Franken of Minnesota? Well, he’s the biggest doofus to date, making the mistake of having his picture taken while fondling a sleeping woman’s breasts. What a moron! And now you’ve got Democrats turning a cold shoulder to none other than that loveable serial rapist and sex fiend Bill Clinton (never mind that just a year ago when his wife was running for President it was lips shut as far as the donkey party was concerned).

And no one knows where the bottle will stop next. I guarantee you there will be more politicians, especially after this story. Me? I’m waiting for the first male to come forward to say a major Hollywood actress or female Washington politician put the moves on him. After all, fair is fair, right?

But seriously, I find it both sad and amusing to see this country all of a sudden whipped into a froth over this kind of thing. On one hand, I have little doubt that men in positions of power and influence have tried to use same in ways that were less than morally upright. But for gawdsakes, this kind of thing has been happening since the beginning of time. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying it’s the way it has always been. The Hollywood “casting couch” has been part of its culture since the first silent movies. Politicians have made moves on interns and secretaries since the earliest days of the Republic. There have always been, and will always be, sex scandals of one form or another. You put ambitious and successful men and ambitious or vulnerable women alone in the same room or at a gathering and you’ve got all the ingredients for hanky-panky. And it’s not just the guy’s fault either – if you don’t think women are attracted to power and influence and are willing to play the game and push the bounds of propriety in order to get noticed or get ahead, you’re dreaming.

I’m not saying everyone does it so it’s OK. And I’m not saying that there aren’t true victims out there who have been taken advantage of (at the very least) or sexually abused in some form (at the very worst) and, for whatever reason, chose not to stay silent until now out of a sense of shame, fear, or some form of retribution. But that being said, it’s all too easy in this day and age of social media and media saturation to just toss accusations out there from decades ago as a way to either destroy someone’s career, make a name for yourself, or feel better about yourself. In my view, if you don’t have any evidence that goes beyond “he said, she said” – well, you had your chance when the incident originally happened and said nothing then, so keep your trap shut. You got witnesses? Fine. But they too better have more than just anecdotal evidence that can’t be validated by a complaint to the authorities, or bona fide, documented evidence of some kind. Otherwise, you got nothing. The statue of limitations for keeping your mouth shut ran out a long time ago, so keep it shut.

It’s too easy to ruin another person’s reputation in this day and age. For one thing, the media in all its forms is all too happy to splay it everywhere to get clicks or ratings or to sell newspapers. And that’s especially true if you’re a Republican or a conservative. It may not be fair, but that’s just the way it works these days. So in this season of the witch (hunt) I just wish folks would stop and take a breath or think about what they’re about to accuse someone else of before they say anything. Using baseball as an analogy, you might want to throw your best pitch in high and tight, but don’t be surprised if it misses over the plate and comes rocketing back at your head. Everyone – and I mean everyone has skeletons in their closets, so a little discretion would go a long way.

After a long week I needed a good laugh.

Thanks to a link at the Conservative Treehouse I got it. Pretty funny what folks can come up with these days.

It’s been a while, I know but things have been crazy around here. First (as usual) I got sick after taking the plane flight home and it’s only today that I’ve been starting to feel halfway human again. Second, Tracey had major shoulder surgery (she fell off her bike a few months ago) and I’ve got Tam to nurse her and five bunnies in the house that need taking care of. Work has been a bitch as usual, so there’s been no time to even try and catch up with things.

It’s a shame to come back from an extended break with events like this but here are my thoughts:

1. Of course Democrats and the talking heads all over the cable networks will do their usual thing politicizing another gun massacre before the bodies are even cold. These people don’t just have any compassion, they are bloodless, soulless sons of bitches. Once again, it will be found that every gun control law on the books wouldn’t have prevented this guy from getting the weapons he used. But laws don’t matter to these folks unless their absence forwards their political agenda. Because to these people, politics is the only thing they think about.

2. Rather than focusing on the weapon(s) used in cases like this, shouldn’t we be having a meaningful dialog about the kind of people perpetrating these kinds of events? Who are they? What signals or messages were they sending out ahead of their actions? I guarantee people knew and said nothing to the authorities. In my view, you have to make examples of people who knew things and did nothing about it to make people understand it’s just not acceptable anymore to see something and not say something.

3. On a similar note, what kind of unbalanced person would do such a thing? How do they get to this point? I’d be more than happy to point a finger at the entertainment industry and the music industry and to the kind of violence they shovel at us on a daily basis. But if that were true there would be more of this kind of stuff. You can watch TV and listen to music and play video games and be able to separate fantasy from reality. This person had to have exhibited signs that would make him a person of interest.

4. To that end our law enforcement needs to get a whole lot smarter and upgraded. Sometimes a minor intervention can prevent a major atrocity from occurring.

5. It’s time public places start thinking about how to secure their premises with better security. I think not just about churches, but stores and supermarkets. I know it would entail greater costs, but you just can’t take a chance these days. I think of places like my local supermarket where people can just walk in and out as they please. Seems to me whether it’s security that is paid for or volunteered, anything you can do to reduce the chances of some rogue loony coming in and shooting up the place because they ran out of romaine lettuce is where we’re heading towards.

6. Makes you wonder what kind of upbringing the shooter had.

7. It’s a pretty damned lousy world we find ourselves living in when someone starts shooting up people worshipping in churches.

The line is uttered by Ed Harris in that great Nicholas Cage / Sean Connery action flick “The Rock”. The soldiers under Harris’s command have arrived on Alcatraz Island with the goal of forcing the U.S government to pay them millions of dollars so they won’t fire missiles containing deadly V/X gas into San Francisco. Whether Harris is serious about inflicting death on the likes of Tony Bennett or not, he cautions the soldiers who have joined him using that immortal line:

“Make no mistake about it, gentlemen, we are in harm’s way.”

It’s the same line I utter whenever I step off the jetway and into the terminal at Boston’s Logan Airport, where a sea of big-government liberals, progressives, and Kennedy family worshippers await. They’re not necessarily bad people, mind you – certainly as human beings go they’re no better or no worse than the folks you’d meet anywhere else (albeit with cooler accents), and in fact I always feel a sense of gratitude at being able to enjoy yet another visit back home to where I grew up: my family and friends, veal cutlet subs (no cheese, thank you), Howie Carr, Margaritas Mexican restaurants, fried clams and seafood (not fish), Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, exorbitant taxation, small, windy roads, and the endless construction on Route 93 to and from New Hampshire. (BTW, were that road was here in Arizona, I guarantee it would be called, “the 93″, like they call every main artery or interstate that runs through these parts.)

Ahh Massachusetts. Where in the Logan car rental center lobby there’s the advertisement for the JFK Library and its seemingly-endless exhibit dedicated to “The Lion of the Senate”, Ted Kennedy. Not sure if it’s a worthwhile gig to do or not, I only know Mary Jo Kopechne was unavailable for comment. A fat, sexist pig, a fraud, and a hero in Massachusetts’ highest political traditions.

You can’t avoid the politics of the place, because, unlike here in the Valley of the Sun where it’s all about recreation, ASU football, tattoos, Dutch Bros. coffee stands (although Dunkin’ Donuts are showing up all over the place), and doing one’s own thing, the folks in Massachusetts live and breathe professional sports and politics as if it’s a part of the very air they breathe.

…not that being a liberal stronghold is worth much where you have a state Senate and legislature that’s on the take from top to bottom, where it’s not a question of if you’re corrupt but how corrupt you are and how many family members you’ve been able to get on the state or county payrolls. Of course, Massachusetts is represented by those two powerhouses of progressivism and integrity, Elizabeth “Fauxcahontas” Warren and Ed “Milquetoast” Markey, who are nothing but pigs feeding off the trough of the D,C. Swamp. If there are two more ineffectual progressives and partisan pols in Washington, D.C. you’ll have to let me know. But no one cares about that kind of thing in Massachusetts – it’s just the way it is and has always been.

But that’s OK – I just like visiting there. The food is the best you’ll ever eat outside of New Orleans, the fall weather I plan on playing golf in ought to be a welcome change from the heat that still hasn’t broken here in the Valley of the Sun, and my friends remain my friends even if we might see things from different sides of the political aisle. There will be the seashore to visit, woods to walk in, golf to play, good food to eat, and friends and family members to visit and share laughs with. I still can’t get used to the fact that my Mom won’t be at the apartment to greet me with a warm, “There’s my son!”, but Dad is still there and we’ll have a good time when we take the Sunshine Bus down to the Mohegan Sun to play some Caveman Plus Keno.

The weather promises to be great the first few days before settling into the kind of fall weather I’m hoping to see. A chill in the air at night, bright-colored leaves, and the smell of the air that’s uniquely autumn in the northern climes. I’ll be playing golf at the “Three Ps”: Pease Golf Course on Sunday, Passaconaway C.C. (one of my top 5 favorite courses) on Monday, and, hopefully, Portsmouth C.C. (my #1 favorite course) the following Sunday before I return on Halloween Eve.

There’s a lot – and I mean a lot of stuff waiting for me to get to when I get back, but I’ll worry about that when I board the plane to Phoenix. Until then, it’ll hopefully be another nice trip back home. Even though, as a conservative and a die-hard fan of President Trump, I’ll be in harm’s way.

See y’all in the Eastern Time Zone!

There’s no greater example of the differences between the Obama administration and the Trump administration than the case of Army deserter and chickensh*t Bowe Bergdahl. The Obama administration attempted to give him the hero treatment, his parents even treated to a Rose Garden visit – something I never understood. Except, of course, for the fact that Barack Obama never treated the military with anything but scorn and the minions in his administration sought to glorify anything that would diminish our troops fighting in combat by using Bergdahl’s case as an excuse to try and empty out Guantanamo Bay. And wasn’t it Obama’s national security advisor Susan Rice – you know, the one who went on all the Sunday cable shows after the Benghazi fiasco to blame the whole thing on a video? – who called his service honorable. Honorable?

Of course, the Trump administration has a worldview quite different than Barack Obama’s, so the guy is finally getting what he deserved. In my view, he’s damned luck this isn’t sixty or seventy years ago – he’d be shot as a traitor rather than getting a life sentence. Which is why the deal Obama made looks even worse today than it did back then.

The greater the distance between the present day and the Obama administration, the more people are beginning to see what a sham it was and just how much the fawning mainstream media covered up for its lawlessness and excesses. But the truth will ultimately all come out.

A few thoughts and comments about the Liberal Left finally being exposed for exactly what it has always been: a cesspool of hypocrisy, corruption, and intolerance powered by identity politics under the guide of “diversity”, “fairness”, and “social justice”.

It took the election of Donald Trump to expose these vile bastards for who they are. It didn’t start with the likes Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, the NFL players, Ashley Judd, Madonna, MSNBC, CNN, ESPN, the New York Times, the Boston Globe, the L.A. Times, Antifa, George Clooney, Jimmy Kimmel, the Democratic Party, Black Lives Matter, the mainstream media, the GOP elites, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and all those behind the “Cheap Labor Express”, immigration activists, college and university administrators and professors across the country and the snowflake “social justice warriors” being brainwashed by their socialist/communist agenda, and (unfortunately) it’s not going to end any time soon, but by golly, it’s about time the game was being taken to them on a daily basis.

They say sunlight is the best disinfectant, and just watching the whole Harvey Weinstein thing play out is going to be fascinating. Everyone – and I do mean – everyone – in the “entertainment industrial complex” (Hollywood, the mainstream media, and the Democratic Party, etc.) is going to be looking to cover their pathetic and sanctimonious asses having to explain the utter hypocrisy in enthusiastically supporting the likes of Hillary Clinton while all the while knowing and covering up for the actions of a sexual predator. Like John Lennon once sang, “all I want is the truth. Just gimme some truth.”

…oh wait a second: I guess I do understand why these folks supported Hillary Clinton. Right, Bubba?

…and oh BTW, wasn’t Harvey one of “Shrill Hill”‘s most enthusiastic supporters and contributors? So where is “Madame President”‘s condemnation? I won’t hold my breath.

Some of this is just breathless to behold. You have Black Lives Matter protesters disrupting a ACLU speech, of all things! And DACA activists disrupting a Nancy Pelosi presser? And libs calling for a boycott of ESPN after they suspended their house racist Jamele Hill. Honestly, folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

…and speaking of that gift that just keeps on giving: “San Fran Nan” is now threatening to shut down the government over DACA. I have only three words: Do. It. Please.

Finally, back to the poster child for everything that’s gone wrong with the liberal left. If you’re the NFL where do you from here? Your reputation and brand is being shredded week in / week out by a bunch of ignorant employees who don’t seem to understand the need to restrict their provocative thoughts and actions to places off the playing field. Talk about self-inflicted wounds! Slave owners and slaves, indeed. Keep it up, I say, and see where that gets you. At that point, I’m guessing there will be plenty of blame to go around but have a feeling no one will be looking in the mirror!

…and while all this happens, Donald Trump just eggs them on into higher stratospheres of frustration and fury. Honest to God, never in my wildest dreams could I have imagined that the election of Trump could cause the kind of biblical proportion-esque level of liberal mayhem and hysteria we are witnessing on a daily basis. This has more than just a protracted tantrum, this is the equivalent of a Fukishima meltdown.

It sure is a joy to behold. Pass the popcorn.

A few thoughts about the mass shooting that took place in Vegas Sunday night:

1. It makes me heartsick to even have to blog about this. I love Vegas, and for the same reason most other folks do – it’s a place to go to get away from the troubles of the world, not find yourself a victim of it.

2. The sad truth is, if someone wants to commit mass murder there’s not a whole lot to stop them unless their family, friends, and neighbors somehow pick up the scent. Just like what happened in San Bernadino and elsewhere, it’s gonna come out that folks knew about this guy and what he was capable of, and whether out of fear or just blindly going on about their daily lives said nothing or did nothing.

3. Want my take on it? No? Well, I’ll give it to you anyway: the guy was a loon and a gambling addict who got tired of losing at the casinos and decided to teach Vegas a lesson it would never forget. You read this and perhaps the motive becomes fairly obvious. Think about it: can you imagine the impact on Mandalay Bay alone? Would you want to book a room there now? I sure wouldn’t. Not only will it be forever stained by being the scene of this tragedy, but they’re going to get ass sued up the yang-yang for damages by any and all affected. I’m not sure that’s right, but if in fact they allowed the guy to check in under his girlfriend’s ID that’s a major problem and neglect on their registration desk’s part. I know every time I’ve checked in to any hotel – never mind in Vegas – they always ask for an ID to go with the credit card on file. Not that it might have prevented the massacre if he was forced to show his ID and not allowed to register if he didn’t, but that in itself opens the door very wide for lawsuits.

4. It’s so predictable what happens whenever there’s a mass shooting. Generally speaking, you get (most) politicians and civic leaders offering up sympathies, prayers, and concerns for the victims and their loved ones, then liberals and Democrats who don’t even wait for the bodies to cool before they traipse in front of the cameras and call for gun control. It’s sickening, but then again you’re talking about sick people who see everything through a political lens and are sick in their very souls. Michael Savage has called liberalism a mental disorder, and it’s people like this and this and this that only confirm Savage’s diagnosis.

5. You can look at the vast majority of mass casualties by gun violence in a single setting and see two common threads: the guns were illegally purchased, and they occurred in a gun-free zone. I’m OK with tightening up regulations wherever it makes sense, but gun control ain’t the answer. It’s the mature response in times like this to recognize that guns don’t kill people, people do.

6. It makes me wonder about stadium settings and how many baseball parks and football stadiums are within shooting range of a hotel or high-rise buldings. I guarantee you Toronto Blue Jays players and the folks at Skydome see the world a bit differently today. Same thing with the Cubs and Wrigley Field, and any number of other locales.

7. It also makes me wonder why no one has attempted this kind of thing before. I mean, you have a virtual killing field anytime you have high-rise buildings and a concert or a sporting event within range. At least the poor folks at the Highway 91 event could at least start running. Can you imagine a full stadium with people seated in tiny rows and aisles as a means of escape? Not to mention the players on the field. It’s a sad state of affairs for someone to contemplate, but that’s the world we live in.

8. And it makes me recall that visit to Vegas a couple of years ago when me and fellow Goodboys “Killer” Kowalski and “Doggy Duval” McLaughlin were staying at the Palazzo, and Killer and I witnessing those Iranians starting to bust up the bar in the middle of The Venetian casino. It all happens so fast around you, but who knows what would have happened if those guys decided to shoot up the place instead of smashing a bunch of $50K chandeliers. I guarantee you if they had I wouldn’t be blogging right now.

9. Kudos to the Wynn for taking additional security measures. I’ll be going there in December – can’t wait – but you have to be realistic about things in this day and age. And it’s going to be everywhere. It’s sad, but that’s the way it is: you can bet this kind of thing will be springing up all over the casinos, clubs, and hotels.

On one side you have:
* Democrats
* Progressives
* the Liberal Left
* the Mainstream Media
* Academia
* Antifa
* “Big Entertainment”, including media, Hollywood and the large record labels
* “Big Sports”, including NFL / MLB / NBA / ESPN
* Big Government, including all Obama administration holdovers
* Big Pharma
* Blue Staters
* GOP Elites
* Wall Street
* The Welfare Industry
* Illegal Immigration Activists
* U.S. Chamber of Commerce
* “K Street” and all lobbyists related to the above
* the Abortion industry
* National Intelligence (including the CIA, NSA, and FBI)
* Feminists
* Social Justice “Warriors”
* Hillary Clinton

On the other side you have:
* President Donald J. Trump
* Conservatives
* Red Staters
* the NRA
* The vast majority of those serving in our military
* A majority of police officers, firefighters, and first responders

It’s a fight to the death, and you can see all the people in group #1 finally being exposed for what they always have been as they crawl out from under their respective rocks whining and moaning and groaning and complaining and bellyaching and “taking a knee” over so-called “injustice” and “inequality”.

One question for those of you:

WHERE THE HELL WERE YOU THE LAST EIGHT YEARS WHEN BARACK OBAMA WAS PRESIDENT?

After all, nothing in the grand scheme of things has changed much since then – it’s only been, what, ten months, right? Oh, wait a dog-gone minute: there was something that happened in that time, wasn’t there? The election of Donald J. Trump as President.

You know what I think? All you folks in group #1 have no guiding principles whatsoever. Your problem is that you just can’t get over the shock of Hillary Clinton being beaten like a rented mule by Donald Trump – DONALD TRUMP! – after being led on for months on end that Crooked Hillary had the election in the bag.

That’s all this is – a temper tantrum by a bunch of petulant, juvenile, and spoiled leftists, elitists, prima donna athletes, and social-justice snowflakes who hate Donald Trump, and, by default (because it elected him) America and all those who voted for Donald Trump. Why now? Because they’ve finally come to realize that after months of being brainwashed by the likes of CNN, MSNBC, the Washington Post and The New York Times telling them that Russia meddling in the 2016 election was going to get Trump impeached and the election overturned in favor of Hillary, there was no meddling, Trump is President, and Trump is going to remain President for the next three years.

So now after some NFL dopes start “taking a knee” on behalf of supposed racial injustice and inequality (whatever that means) and disrespect this country’s flag and national anthem, these clowns have finally discovered a gesture that will make them all feel warm and fuzzy and united, allowing everyone to see just how they feel about President Trump. So they’re now emerging from their Manhattan high-rise condos, mansions, colleges and universities, chardonnay-swilling social circles, and gated communities to use this gesture to bash the President simply because he loves this country and is not afraid to show it and slam those who don’t.

(I know, I know, the whole “taking a knee” thing started with Colin Kaepernick while Obama was Prez, but at the time he was just a lone wacko wolf. Kinda like John McCain with an afro.)

That’s all this so-called “movement” is, folks – a temper tantrum designed to grab the greatest media attention.

The sad truth is, it shows just how hypocritical they are. All the time Barack Obama was President, he could have used his unique background and the power of his position to bring this country closer together and ease the racial divisions and tensions we have. Instead, he used his globalist world-view and progressive agenda to exploit our differences, exacerbate racial tensions, and bash America and what it stood for at every turn. Hillary Clinton was supposed to be the continuation, if not culmination, of every progressive’s wet dream, and for months on end these people waited with breathless anticipation while the mainstream media foisted one incorrect poll after another on the American people and called Donald Trump and his supporters everything from racists, sexists, homophobes, and xenophobes, sh*tting on them with dripping disdain at every turn.

They didn’t get their way, and now they blame and hate this country for it. So they denigrate our flag and national anthem, the very symbols of this country’s greatness. A country that gave them the best of everything it possibly could, expecting only that they give their best on behalf of it in return. And instead, this is how they treat their country. All because Donald Trump was elected President.

It’s sad, it’s sick, and it’s destructive. But they don’t care, because to them every waking moment in their lives is about playing politics and putting themselves ahead of this country’s interests. Funny thing is, I’d respect them all a helluva lot more if they came out and just admitted they were “dropping a knee” in protest of Trump being elected President. While my feelings about their actions wouldn’t change, at least they’d be admitting the truth, and once you have someone’s true perspective you can start hashing things out. But to all of a sudden claim, nearly ten months into Trump’s presidency, that its racial equality and injustice behind their disrespecting this nation’s flag and anthem is an insult not just to my intelligence but to that of millions upon millions of others.

Maybe they don’t know it just yet, but they are now all being revealed for the hypocritical, spiteful, and hateful people they are. And there will be consequences – far beyond anything they can imagine. This is a battle of wills, with our country’s history, traditions, successes, failures, lessons learned, rule of law, and sanctity of our borders at stake. The left is actively trying to destroy all of this, because they know that if they lose there is no going back. President Trump is the greatest threat to their agenda they have known, and they will stop at nothing to destroy him and what he stands for. So it’s not just an innocent act of “taking a knee” going on here, it’s the furthering of agenda that seeks to disrespect, demean, and ultimately destroy the social fabric and contract that keeps our country working together for our preservation and self-interest.

These folks are playing with fire, and those who play with fire are bound to get burned.
