Collins Bill to Honor Fallen Marine Sent to President’s Desk

Press Release, State & National


WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.

“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.

Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.


Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.

That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.

Short Takes – A Divided America, What’s the Cure?


America has long been divided by two contending political philosophies, one created in the firm belief in the god given rights of man through self determination and possession of private property, among others, the inalienable anchors of representative freedoms. The other, a scheme that clings to the Marxist inspired idea that people would be happier when embraced by the comforting arms of a collectivist, benevolent government, in the guise of the Democrat Party.

Into the midst of this conflict of ideas, stepped the most totally corrupt entity to ever enter American politics, the Clintons, man and wife, neither Marxists or Constitutionalists but criminals singularly dedicated to exploiting political divisions for their own self-aggrandizement. Their vehicle to wealth accumulation, power and corruption was through America’s political process.  

America’s ill’s will never ever heal until Americans are assured at last, that the entire apparatus of the Clinton’s odious pay to play, personal wealth grabbing, political corrupting, self aggrandizing, treasonous machine is dismantled and she, her husband and all their acolytes stand in the dock to account for their crimes. Only then, will we know the cure has started.

The political struggle has been going on for decades with Socialist-Marxism in the ascendency, until Donald Trump. Trump hasn’t been scheming for years to be President, but is a total newcomer to the governing process because he had finally arrived at his own breaking point. Trump saw that Americas conversion into Socialism was near total and irrevocable. It was his trigger to believe the instauration of American politics was required and he could do it.

So, what does it mean to be a Republican then? Until Trump, absolutely nothing! Republicans, long wanderers in the political wilderness, bought into the socialists agenda for so long that capitulation was considered the norm. No debate, no arguments, just go the Democrats way. The word “bipartisanship” camouflages the exploitative nature of conflicting powers allegedly governing together. Republicans constantly fumbled aways their voters desires to keep America great. They were enjoying their “bipartisanship” and the rewards that came with it. Their greatest trick, as the cliche goes: was their ability to “snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.“ Until Trump!

Trump’s not a Republican and definitely not a Marxist but he’s a wealth creating businessman, a capitalist who convinced us he had the skills to Make America Great Again. He knows how to negotiate and the problems left us from eight years of Obama’s amateurish leadership, his inherent weaknesses and policies of appeasement, is being challenged face on and renegotiated to the screams and laminations of the spavined Democrat party.

Trump came as a champion. Americans, awakened by the Leftist threat, but lacking leadership and not knowing how to confront it, organized into ’quaint’ political groups, were quickly derided by the media and Deep State practitioners of elitism. The result, victory of conservatism in three successive national elections pushing the Democrat party into near oblivion.

The Republicans are starting to do what we have long wanted and what Trump is pushing them to do: expect political success in the face of tough resistance. Lacking an effective strategy for defeating the Democrats, without being pushed from behind, is slowing the process. Americans are resilient, slow to anger but fierce when pushed. The Democrats plotting against Americans in favor of illegals proves they are morally bankrupt and lack any vision to see America as Americans want it. The changes will be painful but in the end, America will be great again.

Remember, Freedom is thew goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!

Short Takes – 2018



Today is the first day of a brand new year, that drags along with it the sum of all the problems and pretenses of the old year, but accompanied with a dash of sincere hope that under new management, our country can succeed in restoring America to its rightful role, for all the world, as the “Shining Beacon on the Hill.”

I noted that we approach the future under Donald Trump, ‘with a dash of hope,’ but also with a marked lack of enthusiasm. The TEA Party experience seems to have evaporated into thin air after having achieved three consecutive election victories for Conservative principles that finally showed the Marxist-Democrats the door. But those rascals are still out there plotting and scheming and organizing, to undo the grass works efforts that made a Trump Presidency and a Republican Congress possible. From Republicans, there is no gratitude.

Shockingly, the lack of acknowledgement of that effort from our stunned elected politicians who constitute the Republican Party, and who still fail to grasp the import of the tidal wave of political change that eliminated the Democrats, has also swept the GOP’s influence out the door too. They are still reeling in disbelief wondering how a pragmatists became their leader. Apparently some have even “reached across the aisle” to join hands with the Socialist enemy to try to restore their combined hegemony over the American political process. Let the looting continue.

Primary among the GOP “Never Trumpers” stands 4th place loser John Kasich, Governor of Ohio who, if the frequent appeals from his web site to my email address are any indication, still believes he should be the rightful Republican candidate so as to restore to proper governing, the failed process of “bipartisanship” and return our government to the capable hands of the one world government crowd composed of mega banks, international corporations and the quasi assembly of third world nations gathered under the blue banner of the United Nations.

2018 will be another important midterm election experience for conservatism. Also judging by the volume of their appeals for donations, Democrats must truly believe, because Americans really, really hate Trump, that they will capture the House and the Senate again. How they accomplish that goal with an intractable and intransigent, but aging leadership, themselves ready for hospice care, is in serious doubt. Their message never changes, free stuff for everyone, no border walls, protect sanctuary cities and states, and free education and glorify perversion because it’s only fair.

Future leadership for the Democrat party is an unspoken contest between old time American  leftists and the corroding influence of foreign ideals (Islam), they are trying to force into the American culture as a norm, a precursor of the coming jihad that turns America into a Caliphate.  

Presently, both party’s find their bases confused by indecision. For the Democrats, it’s do they move further left and double down, or move center right to save themselves? For the stupid Republicans, a golden opportunity has been laid at their feet and sure as heck, they’re going to flub it. Where is the TEA parties when we need them? The GOP needs to be cleansed of its socialist heretics. Younger conservative candidates need to be encouraged to step forward and seize the reins of American constitutionalism. As my friend Jack Smith reminds us constantly, “if not now, when?” “If not you, who?”…or something like that. We’ve got to get moving, now.

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (01Jan 2018)

Republican, A Metaphor for Incompetence?


Well, well, well. Democrats decisively won the Va. governorship and now scream it was a joyous repudiation of that awful Donald Trump. Lying between the real issues and the screaming propaganda that the Republicans are on the ropes, is the simple little fact that Northern Va. is the deepest part of the ‘swamp’ where many, if not most of the swamp dwellers reside, including #Never Trump Republicans. Remember, the GOP Senate Fund has actually been used to help fund Democrats campaigns if the Republican candidate is conservative with Tea Party connections or one who challenges the ‘RiNO Establishments’ official line.

Important to both campaigns for Va. Governor, was the complete failure by either candidate to face the issue of Obama’s collapsing health care scheme; the Democrats because they didn’t want to remind voters that Obamacare was indeed collapsing, and the Republicans because they didn’t want to remind voters of the incompetence of the Republican Party by its failure to repeal and replace Obamacare. Many RiNO’s still dwell among them.

All the liberal media blowhards are screaming exactly the same thing. “Everybody hates Trump.” But, do they? The results of a new poll published yesterday said that if Hillary and Trump faced off today, Trump would still win. What the politicians up there don’t realize is that the majority of American’s actually hate them and what they stand for, more than they do Donald Trump.

Trump after all, is fulfilling his campaign promises, striking down, as fast as he can, the unelected regulatory bureaucracy Obama imposed on us to kill our economy, reducing the size of government employment rolls, energizing the economy, creating employment opportunities, slowing down illegal immigration, reestablishing America’s status as a valuable and trustworthy military partner against crackpot dictators, and reorganizing fair trade practices with other countries. Not a legacy to be ignored. He doesn’t like the UN either and that can’t hurt.

The roots of the tree of Socialists dogma have been well nourished for years because we didn’t pay attention. The rabid reaction of America’s leftists, its college administrations and the millennial students they are brainwashing, have been ignited into inflamed passion, less by Hillary’s loss than by Trumps victory. This, all while the Democrat party itself collapses around them. Hillary did collude with the Russians, She did sell 20% of our uranium to them and she did rig the Democrat Convention to beat out Bernie Sanders. Now comes Donna Brazile with her tell all book, probably a lame scheme to destroy Hillary once and for all, and set up Michelle Obama for a presidential run. Remember, it’s a year out and the questions about Barak’s Obama’s unknown past still haven’t been answered. Why is that?

For that same one whole year, the crap the left has flung against the Trump train has failed to stick. The media, always leading the anti-Trump parade were falling back in confusion until one or two blue state election victories re-energized what they believe is the true message, that  everybody does hate Trump. Well, sorry CNN, but no, they don’t.

Trump will succeed by the merit of his own skill as a capital businessman, bringing his supporters along with him. He will fail if the Trump public doesn’t start their own campaigns to strike back, not just against the sinister Democrats, but the RiNo Republicans themselves. Some are already fleeing Trump’s success. More should be encouraged to follow. This is our only opportunity, short of revolution, to correct our screwed up government and it is only Trump who is capable of Making America Great Again. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (09Nov17)

Bush Finally Speaks


Bush Finally Speaks

What did it take for former President George W. Bush to finally come out of his burrow and make a public declaration against a sitting President? No no, not against the eight years of Obama’s disastrous attempt to socialize America, or demeaning Bush’s own presidency, but against conservative Donald Trump who is intent on rescuing America from the bleak future of collectivism of the type we now see unfolding in Venezuela, and have seen in Cuba and Zimbabwe where the Political swamp dwellers in Wash. DC, were taking us.  

Bush stands as a sterling example of what’s wrong with the GOP. America has moved on and the leadership has ignored that fact. Donald Trump hasn’t! Trump is a fighter and the GOP leadership isn’t. They don’t know how. Bipartisanship is a death wish and since Trump’s election, the “collectivists” of all parties, have gone nuts. In this first year so far, Trump has accomplished more to rescue America from the evils of Obama’s socialism than have decades of political ‘go along to get along’ policies with their silly ‘hands across the aisle’ and political camaraderie  nonsense between looters. American’s are sick of it and that’s why we now have Donald Trump.  

Bush came out to protect his “Compassionate Conservatism” brand of Americanism that happily embraced the Socialist enemy, the Democrats, as bipartisan co-equals in promoting Americas health and happiness. The Establishment Republicans, for decades, have missed the whole point of the cunning scheme the Democrats have employees to “fundamentally change America.” They’re still confused as John McCain so clearly demonstrates.

The Democrats, employing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as their battle plan, have set Americas political agenda almost since the candidacy of George McGovern in 1972. They have plotted against American conservative values with tactics of political correctness, diversity, multiculturalism, racism, remorse and lies while the Establishment GOP’ers have totally failed to realize the serious damage their bipartisanship was doing to America.

Ultimately, content with second place by enjoying the scraps of political comradeship allotted to them by the Democrats, they finally achieved total power with promises unkept, promises never intended to be kept, totally unprepared to govern, and demonstrably incapable of doing so now that they do have both houses of Congress. They have been left reeling in horror when a fighting President finally puts their feet to the fire and forces them to make Constitutional decisions contrary to their usual norms of capitulation to Democrats.

The Democrats have all but destroyed themselves. They are in disarray across the entire country and divided in even knowing which direction to take their party: to the middle or further left. The Democrats still in Congress are incapable of doing anything other than obstruct and delay and the Republicans let ‘em get away with it. Republican leadership, or whatever it’s called, simply doesn’t have the killer instinct to drive a stake into the heart of the vampire Socialist Democrat party, even prostate as they are. They still speak of bipartisanship.

Reading the text of Bush’s speech, I just imagined it was spoken by Bill Clinton. There was nothing said that Clinton or even Barack Obama wouldn’t have said which explains why Bush’s presidency was a failure. Even Nancy Pelosi, despite reports of her oncoming dementia, still insists on impeaching Donald W. Bush. The Republicans don’t recognize they are in a fight for America’s soul. The fraternity club they have co-existed in is rapidly coming to an end so, they can dry off Bush and send him back to his burrow. He’s not needed anymore. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!. (20Oct17).

What We Learn From Polls


What We Learn From Polls

Beware the pop quizzes the various internet sites ask of its readers. I personally like to consult Bob Livingston’s Personal Liberty site where they ask a serious of ‘loaded’ questions requiring  only a “yes” or “no” answer, without qualification. For example, today’s series of questions were:

1) Is President Trump mentally fit to serve? Yes or no? Of course he is and he demonstrates it daily. He’s running circles around Congress, putting them into positions where they have been legislatively moribund in their decision making abilities, not wanting to threaten their financial supporters. Add in the treachery of six Republican Senators, John McCain primary among them, the wailings of the deranged media and the question becomes, just who is mentally fit?

2) Should President Trump have kept Steve Bannon on board at the White House? Yes or No? He could have, but Bannon best serves Trump from the outside where he promises to attack all Deep State Republicans for removal, which brings us to the next question…..

3) Is the GOP headed for major upsets in the 2018 midterms? Yes or No? Yes, but it will not be the Democrats replacing feckless Republicans, it will be candidates from the Conservative Tea Party side of the Republican party. Democrats are going all in for Marxism. That won’t do!

4) Is Trump’s attack on NBC an assault on their 1st Amendment Rights? Yes or No? The President has a 1st Amendment right to defend himself just as NBC enjoys a 1st Amendment to promote Democrat propaganda against him. It’s a two way street, isn’t it?

5) Does a gun registry threaten the 2nd Amendment? Yes or No? It certainly does. A registry, as we saw in Australia, permitted a rogue socialist government to arbitrarily seize all citizens guns because government knew where they were located. Australians are now being overrun by street criminals, with guns, and violent muslims pushing the envelope of their silly demands.

6) Is Roy Moore the beginning of a broader conservative revolt in the GOP? Yes or No? Of course he is. Despite Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s throwing millions of NRC donations in support of his picked candidate, and the Administration’s support, Moore won. It’s a start.

7) Should the U.S. launch a military strike on North Korea? Yes or No? Not peremptorily. South  Korea is in the way. It should be their decision, unless NK launches a first strike. We can push them though, by shooting down their next test launch missile.

8) Should bump stocks and similar devices be banned? Yes or No? The question now is should they be seized? Stores have sold out and one can be fashioned by any home grown fabricator of which America is gifted with a vast rich pool. Full automatic weapons are illegal to possess without the hard to get ATF tax stamp. Another law will do nothing to stop violence with guns,…. or knives, or hammers or cars, for that matter.

9) Time for Nancy Pelosi to retire? Yes or No? A silly question, isn’t it? Absolutely not. For the GOP, Nancy is the gift that keeps on giving.

10) Will the GOP establishment sabotage Roy Moore? Yes or No? Yes, they’ll try but, it will only serve to confirm what voters everywhere already know, draining the swamp will not be complete until the establishment GOPer’s are all swept away too. That’s my view. What’s yours?Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em. (16Oct17)

The Power of Shouting


The Power of Shouting

When political correctness trumps the truth to suppress alternate opinions, it is because PC is accompanied by a bodyguard of fear. Fear of being shouted down without benefit of dialogue, fear of being ostracized by one’s peers in the workplace, and fear of losing a job because you, the ‘offender,’ was not part of the team. PC is politically corrupt, forged in lies and totally engaged in cognitive dissonance. These people are not just tendentious, they are outright evil in smothering the opinions of others and killing debate.

In its present disguise, coming to us to protect feel good policies supposedly to empower the powerless, etc., the practitioners of PC reveal themselves as haters of Western culture, haters of cultural traditions, Christians, Confederate statues and community norms. Disagree and the organized mobs of PC will invade your space, tear up your copy, commandeer your speaking platform and seize the outlets of digital communication to attack the offender until he is gone.

Cloaked in fake news, outright lies, disinformation and threats of retribution, the power of shouting in the hands of the PC crowd, becomes the tool of oppression and victims, who fail to submit are usually never heard from again. Another definition of Political Correctness, is found in the word hypocrisy.   

Political correctness over several decades in Hollywood, has protected a financial movie maker, Harvey Weinstein, from the exposure of his outright debauchery, indecency to women and his predatory sexual misconduct. Exactly the same thing happened in the Clinton presidency and within the priesthood of the Catholic Church. Overwhelmed with pedophiles as they were, decent priests, at all levels of the church’s hierarchy, suffered the power of silent shouting.

For Weinstein, instead of the censure a righteous and decent community would have heaped on him, he was lavished with praise even by his frightened victims. Some women have bravely come forward to reveal Weinstein’s depredations against them. One young model even had the audacity to record his very own words in his attempt to coerce her into his bed. The truth at last, PC be damned, has opened the floodgates of hypocrisy. Harvey Weinstein’s reputation cannot be salvaged. Of the many luminaries seen in his hundreds of photographs, none have the PC power to save him. ReHab will not suffice, forgiveness is for God. A prison cell will do it.

Harvey Weinstein will be lost. the Political Correctness that has enveloped Hollywood will only subside when it is challenged by brave defenders of the truth, not to mention the box office. The power of Hollywood, like the power of Senatorial RiNO’s, may be on the wane. Nothing lasts as long as nothing, and when dysfunction becomes the norm and predators bask in its glory, once revealed, the whole house of cards come tumbling down, to…nothing. RIP Hollywood.

Here’s my final thoughts on PC. It all comes from a group of non-thinkers who enjoy “liberal privilege.” That simply means never having to say they’re wrong.  Rules that apply to others do not apply to Liberals. In our liberal cities we see that laws to protect public and private property can be suspended in order to allow leftists liberals the room they need to air their PC feelings.  

Liberal privilege is Political Correctness and nothing more. They cannot survive without it and that’s why we are overwhelmed by it, but, thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the Catholic Priesthood, and Clinton’s Democrat party, all of it, we may be entering a new healing phase. When did common decency and shame lose its power of shouting?

Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Oct17)

That Gun Argument Again


That Gun Argument Again…

Good ol’ Sen. Diane Feinstein (D- Ca). She can always be counted on to reveal the obvious. On Sunday’s edition of Meet the Press, she said: “the U.S. is a “gun happy country,…“and I think there are many of us in growing numbers that don’t want a gun-happy country.” Of course she’s wrong but was referring to the annual deaths of Americans by gun fire. She could have said the US is a gun-savvy country but that wouldn’t have fit the Progressive narrative needed to disarm all American, to protect us from gun violence, a la Las Vegas.

Last weeks mass murder in Las Vegas, by a deranged, white millionaire gunman who shot himself to death before his apprehension, gave the anti-self-defense and anti-second amendment crowd another platform of self-serving outrage to attack our Constitution.

Let’s change one word in her sentence and see where that goes: “The U.S. is a car happy country…and I think there are many of us in growing numbers who don’t want a car happy country.” Or, “The US is a hammer-happy Country…etc. & etc.” I substitute cars and hammers because these two inanimate objects account for more killings in America  than guns do.

The Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, a multi-millionaire, can hire gun toting bodyguards to safeguard her person but, that’s really only from attempts at assassinations. Most Americans are subject to the sudden armed assault on the mean streets of America, or home invasions, or attempts at car-jacking from mall parking lots. These people need to defend themselves.

One third of all gun deaths in America, apart from the body count occasioned by the Las Vegas murders, are suicides. More people are killed in domestic assaults by hammers than guns and the score racked up by vehicles, jihadists included, outpaces them all.

So, why the assault specifically against firearms and not hammers and cars? All three are inanimate objects. All three require a human being to actuate them and all three are capable of killing, yet it is only the firearm, the possession of which is specifically permitted to Americans, as enshrined in the 2d Amendment, yet still stands as a horror to Progressive politicians.

The Anti-gunners argue that hammers and cars are needed daily by society to grow and guns are not. And there they miss the big picture. Society is growing and as it does it generates its own class of citizens who do not wish to participate. They won’t swing a hammer, or buy a car but they’ll go out of their way to possess a gun. What does a street creep want with a gun  except to intimidate others, steal from them the rewards of their labor and leave a trail of dead bodies. Why do Progressives, like Diane Feinstein, want to deny Americans their right to self-defense from such predators?

Worse, the Founders clearly foresaw the dangers of Progressive governments, human nature being what it is, growing into a totalitarian state that, to defend itself, threatens all citizens. They foresaw the indispensable right of those citizens to especially be able to defend themselves from government despotism. And that’s what scares the hell out of Diane Feinstein, et. al..

One statistic I have omitted but is available for confirmation is, that thus far, all the mass shooting outrages committed in the USA, since Columbine, have been committed by either committed Liberals or registered Democrats. Therefore, the logical answer is to prohibit Democrats from owning firearms. Simple, isn’t it?  Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em!
