GAINESVILLE, Ga. — Reps. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), Austin Scott (R-Ga.), and Sanford Bishop (D-Ga.) today sent a letter to Windstream underscoring the importance of providing increased access to broadband – particularly in rural areas – in the midst of COVID-19.
“As representatives of thousands of Windstream customers, we write today regarding the impact coronavirus has had on broadband access in rural communities throughout Georgia,” they wrote. “In the past, we have written to you regarding the inadequate internet service our constituents are receiving despite your company’s acceptance of federal dollars to expand access. While we know Windstream has upgraded some areas that are more populated and less rural, many of our constituents continue to struggle with poor broadband speeds.”
For years, Windstream customers across Georgia have consistently struggled to gain access to reliable broadband speeds. Congress has taken significant steps toward expanding rural broadband infrastructure in recent years, including securing federal funding to providers in rural areas. However, some carriers – like Windstream – have failed to provide adequate broadband speeds to consumers despite collecting taxpayer dollars. As this pandemic is forcing more and more Georgians to rely on the internet, access to reliable broadband is more critical than ever before.
“Due to the coronavirus outbreak, thousands of Georgians are being forced to work, learn, and recreate from home. This undoubtedly has increased the strain on the networks your consumers depend upon. Over the past several years, we have heard complaints of a network that is overburdened and cannot keep up during peak use. Even though we have been calling for increased internet access in rural areas for years, this moment in time shows that Windstream has yet to meet the mark.”

Has anyone ever thought of the fact that most of our Christmas songs and traditions are only
about 75 or so years old? Doesn’t it seem like this array has just always been there, always been
Well, it hasn’t always been so joyous and celebrated as it came to be after World War II.
Why is that?
Prior to the victory of the Allies and their return to home and family, Christmas was more
reserved and localized. Songs such as The Messiah and other religious hymns were in place, but
jolly and more secular songs came along with popular movies, such as White Christmas and
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas, among others were the result of a desire to make the
Christmas holiday a very special time for families and friends.
Dad, brother, uncle, son and military women etc. had faced the horror of war, with its death and
destruction. There were sights that they could never unsee. Those who were able to return home,
to their wives, husbands, sweethearts and families, wanted to erase those thoughts to the best of
their ability. They had fought pure, unadulterated evil and had won. It seemed their intention to
eradicate such influences in the years to come.
Many of our Greatest Generation put a great deal of time and effort into making the world as
right as possible, to bring as much joy as possible to those they loved. Not only did they save the
world, they saved the best part of themselves and shared that desire for happiness and perfection
with the making of happy stories, happy songs and familiar bliss. No one can argue that the
generation of the 40s and 50’s worked very hard to create as much perfection in society as they
could. It was a halcyon time that, unfortunately, will never be repeated.
Television and movies had their morality department and strived to show family life as a
network of love, discipline and happy endings. Father always knew best and the Donna Reed
show lauded the middle-class family life.
What has happened to society that it has come from the pure entertainment of those shows to
today’s reality television, moral corruption and disdain of most things that relate to God and
In 1965, a wonderful radio announcer named Paul Harvey made an amazing prophecy on his
weekly show. The title was, If I was the devil.
Anyone who hasn’t heard or read this far-reaching piece that has come to pass in ways that no
one would have guessed. One of his lines quoted from the transcript is “If I were the devil, I
would make the symbol of Easter an egg and the symbol of Christmas a bottle.”
How close is that? He had it nailed and 54 years later, it is true.
Christmas was still reverent in the 70s, and the 80s. People dressed up, had parties, visited with
family and it was a happy time. God was still the Man in Charge in the White House (mostly)
and it reflected on the nation.
The 90s brought us the Clintons and their version of “morality” and the great decline began for
Now in 2019, there are fewer parties, fewer gathering of family and friends than ever. Christmas
cards are not a thing anymore, just send a generic online greeting.
People are well engrossed in their electronic devices. Social life and the moral pressure of
society is long gone. Stores decorate for Christmas in August and begin the big sale that lasts
until well after the New Year.
Retailers completely pass over Thanksgiving, a uniquely American holiday from the Pilgrim
days when living through the winter to harvest was an occasion for thanking Almighty God.
Even Charlie Brown and his gang in Peanuts, when it aired in 1965, complained of the
commercialization of Christmas, lamenting the lack of meaning for monetary gain.
When Christmas songs from the 70s and 80s are played, it is depressing almost to the point of
tears when a comparison is made of the warm, loving, wonderful time of those decades to
today’s commercial apathy.
Maybe, this is an “old folks’ rant about the good old days, but what can be gleaned from today’s
lukewarm electronic holiday?
America has best go back to Ronald Reagan and remember his line:
“If we ever forget we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.”
If Christians don’t stand up and fight for our basic joys of the Lord, His sacrifice for us
and the right to celebrate such, these rights will be taken away by the Liberal Left with
their Atheistic and destructive ways. There are no more free countries to find with such
liberties as we enjoy. They must not be lost, as they will never be found again.
JASPER, Ga. – Final approval came this month for the 2020 Operating Budget with the Jasper CIty Council’s transition to the new year.
The Council unanimously approved the operating budget resolution having gone through proposal, public hearings, and regular meetings.
The All Funds total revenue is $10,937,353. That is $1,079,390 less than 2019’s total $12,016,743. This total includes the General Revenue of the city, but also other sources such as the SPLOST, Hotel/Motel Tax, Water Fund, Solid Waste Fund, and Municipal Court Fund among others.
The General Revenue of Governmental Funds totals $4,680,032 with the budget balanced. This fund is also down from 2019’s $5,048,658 ($368,636 less).
Additionally, many departments are carrying the decrease including the largest departments of the Police Department at $1,365,266 (2019 – $1,410,181) and Fire Department at $1,159,810 (2019 – $1,220,937).
In fact, only three departments increased, Legislative at $117,313 (2019 – $94, 626), Animal Control at $43,921 (2019 – $37,735), and Planning and Zoning at $133,324 (2019 -$49,802).
However, with this budget approved, only four members of the council will operate under this budget as Tony Fountain and Mayor John Weaver are leaving this year.
Mayor Weaver is retiring after 27 years of service in the city, having not sought re-election. He will be succeeded in January by Mayor-elect Steve Lawrence.
GMFTO with #BKP #AnythingGoes BKP’s Opinion on Local, State and National news and politics.
Let’s talk Georgia 6th Congressional District this morning. Not so fast Karen Handel there is the #TheOtherCandidate
Our guest at 8:45 as the AJC refers to her “The other” candidate Marjorie Greene.
The U.S. Women’s National Team has been making headlines recently for victories as a team, and as individuals for political statements.
Last week, the team won their second back-to-back World Cup. Shortly after the game, player Allie Long was seen dropping an American flag during the post-game celebration. Her teammate Kelley O’Hara recognized the significance of a flag being dropped on the ground, and immediately scooped it up.
One report from The Daily Wire explained that Long dropped the flag to participate in a celebratory dance with teammate Megan Rapinoe. But the video quickly went viral and comments poured in criticizing Long for her carelessness and thanking O’Hara for stepping in.
It’s very possible that Long meant no disrespect, but just got caught up in the moment and didn’t know that an American flag is NEVER supposed to touch the ground. Nonetheless, millions of viewers were not happy.
If you watch the video, it doesn’t appear that Long is trying to make any sort of political statement by dropping the flag. However teammate Megan Rapinoe has CERTAINLY been making headlines recently for her statements.
Although Rapinoe is mainly known for being a phenomenal soccer player (she won both the Golden Ball and Golden Boot awards this year), her progressive ideals have, let’s just say…raised eyebrows. Rapinoe is very outspoken about her homosexuality and dislike of President Donald Trump. She has followed the example of former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick by refusing to sing or put her hand over her heart during the National Anthem. The pose she makes after scoring a goal of standing with her arms outstretched is supposed to be a symbol of fighting for equal pay, race relations and issues at the United States/Mexican border.
For years athletes have used the attention given them for their athletic success as a means to shed light on their social platforms. There’s nothing wrong with that if they’re promoting awareness for a disease or a foundation that supports children with special needs. But should we as a society draw a line when it comes to political issues?
Some would say there’s no problem- depending on what they do to make the statement. Certainly being a famous athlete gives one more media attention than the average person. Like I mentioned in my last column post, there’s no difference in an athlete and an actor or actress, and they supply their endorsement all the time!
When Colin Kaepernick first kneeled during the National Anthem in 2016, many Americans were outraged. Not necessarily because of his protest of police brutality, but because he chose to do so in a way that many Americans found disrespectful to those who have served in the military. I was, and still am, one of those people. In my opinion Kaepernick and now Rapinoe are missing the mark. Kneeling or not showing respect during the National Anthem is to turn a blind eye to those who have sacrificed everything to give you the freedom to play your sport. It doesn’t have anything to do with first responders.
Nowadays there’s a gray area between sports segments and political talk shows. The two intersect on a daily basis. Just the other day on our live sports show, Instant Replay, my co-host Dave Garner and I had an entire segment dedicated to Nike’s decision to pull the sneakers with a design of the American flag sewn by Betsy Ross on the back. This decision was made after Kaepernick insisted that the flag had a racial history.
I suppose the whole reason this gray area exists is because of the technological advancements of the media. Celebrities who want use their status as a means to promote a certain viewpoint can do so more quickly because of how easy it is to post to Twitter. And in a society that demands news at every moment, something has to take up time in a sports show!
So back to the original question- should there be a line, and if so, where?
Here’s my opinion- sports is sports and politics is politics. Part of the reason I watch a football game or a baseball game is because I want to watch a football game or a baseball game. We are living in a time where politics are more divisive than ever before. One reasons sports are as big as they are today is because of the communities they create. Why should we mix something that causes so many problems to interfere with something that is supposed to help solve them?
When I turn on ESPN, I don’t want to listen to people debate over what is considered disrespectful to the National Anthem. And the next time I watch Fox News, I DARN sure don’t want to hear the name Colin Kaepernick.

Last week, Georgia Republican Governor, Brian Kemp, announced his appointment of a metro-Atlanta police chief, John King, to be the replacement for the now-suspended elected Insurance Commissioner, Jim Beck. In Georgia, Insurance Commissioner is a statewide, constitutional office.
Jerry Gonzalez, Executive Director of the corporate-funded, anti-enforcement lobbyist group, GALEO, was quick to send out a media release praising the “historic” appointment and boasting that King had assisted the activist group as keynote speaker at a GALEO breakfast fundraiser several years ago.
“Congrats to Chief King, close friend of @GALEOorg !” was the much-repeated celebratory post on the GALEO Facebook page.
Kemp’s Insurance Commissioner appointee has no background or experience in the insurance industry.
Kemp’s appointment of the GALEO-connected police chief to Insurance Commissioner comes as a shock to many Republican voters in the state. Georgia’s conservative U.S. Senator David Perdue stopped the Obama nomination of a one-time GALEO board member, Dax Lopez, to a federal bench seat in 2016 because of his concern with the GALEO relationship.
Perhaps unknown to most Republican voters, in addition to marching in the streets of Atlanta against enforcement of existing federal laws on immigration, GALEO and its director are well-known in the state Capitol for lobbying against state legislation aimed at reporting criminal aliens to federal authorities and establish an official database of illegal aliens serving time in the state’s prison system.
GALEO lobbies against voter ID, official English and local jails honoring ICE detainers. Executive Director Gonzalez is known to verbally attack female legislators when he does not approve of speeches or positions on illegal immigration. In 2011, Gonzalez posted this angry explanation of being asked to leave the Georgia Capitol when he lashed out at state Senator Renee Unterman for a speech she made on the floor of the senate.
In 2011, GALEO’s Gonzalez was escorted out of a Rome, Georgia luncheon that featured a panel discussion on immigration when he began yelling at diminutive state Rep Katie Dempsey as reported by the Rome News Tribune.
Gonzalez is a former lobbyist for the radical MALDEF corporation. GALEO founder, former state Senator Sam Zamarippa was a MALDEF board member. MALDEF founder Mario Obledo is best remembered for his promise that “California is going to become a Hispanic state and if anyone doesn’t like it they should leave. They ought to go back to Europe” on the Tom Likus radio show in 1998.
According to the left-leaning Georgia Budget and Policy Institute, Georgia is home to more illegal aliens than green card holders.
Kemp ran on a platform that included his now famous “I got a big truck, just in case I need to round up criminal illegals and take ’em home myself,”
Kemp and a GALEO fundraiser – Advice from a liberal AJC political blogger
Republicans are learning that before he was elected governor, then Secretary of State Brian Kemp also gave GALEO a fundraising boost when he attended the annual GALEO Power Breakfast fundraiser in 2015.
On GALEO, the liberal AJC political blogger informed readers today that the Republicans will need to court the illegal alien lobby group as a necessary first step to “court Hispanic votes in the future” which ignores thirty years of election results since the Republican immigration amnesty of 1986.
All this creates a simple question: Does appointee John King agree with the GALEO agenda? He is due to be sworn in in the next few weeks, somebody should ask.

Absolute Dysfunction and Eggs!
Let’s see if we can figure this one out. Three hundred people, including at least three Americans, were murdered and five hundred injured, in separate Islamic attacks against two Christian churches and three hotels in Sri Lanka (Ceylon) on Easter Sunday. If you didn’t know that, I recommend you should urgently reevaluate your news gathering habits. The phony Mueller business is over at last. Let it go!
The mainstream media, the propaganda arm of the Progressive Left, don’t want to share these ugly stories of Muslims murdering Christians with you lest you become Islamaphobic in the process. No, not al all! Islam is the religion of peace, isn’t it?
The MSM is motivated to flood the airways with Progressive drivel. For example, while Sri Lanka burns, Elizabeth, the phony Indian, Warren, in her feckless attempt to charge up her flagging presidential campaign, doesn’t even mention the deadly Islamic Easter attack in Sri Lanka, but wants to turn Americans into pot heads. She says “Pot” can be an economic boon to the poor, destitute denizens of neighborhoods that prosperity forgot; that vast throng of poor, uneducated, inept, unqualified unemployable creatures who have not shared in the spoils of Capitalism. Let’s give them money.
Pocahontas is not alone. The wannabe Mexican fool Señor “Beto” O’Rourke, thinks he was gifted with the looks, charm and erudition of JFK, while the former mayor of South Bend, Ind, Greg what’s his name, hyped by a media love fest, has gone off the rails himself defending Socialism as a panacea for America’s problems. AOC demonstrates, every time she opens her mouth, why the cost of her education was money misspent. These people are all the same, identical, leaderless and ignorant, like a carton of eggs.
I put a carton of a dozen fresh eggs in my fridge yesterday, added three eggs on top from the previous carton and, Lo!, fifteen white eggs that look exactly the same, like the Democrat contenders for President. They all sound the same, say the same things, each one out shouting the others to be heard about the same things…nothing! Can I refer to the Democrats as “eggs” now? Would it be understood? Will anyone understand “eggs” as a metaphor for sameness?
Not even a dozen intelligent eggs can possibly do what Donald Trump has done to Make America Great Again, but they all want the same things for Americans, open borders to allow immigration, including invading Muslims, free education, free healthcare, free housing, and monthly salaries whether they have a job or not. The Democrats promise of a socialist utopia remains as big a scam as Mueller’s investigation was. America is not a Socialist country!
This Democrat hysteria over demands for results already provided, on a two year investigation already concluded, is a direct reflection of the dysfunction that the leaderless and inept Democrat party has become. If they were real eggs, they should be scrambled by now. As a political observer, I’m not sure I any longer know how best to describe the Democrat party, as fragile eggs or as further evidence the inmates are running the institution.
The Democrats, now in tatters, are passing through the five stages of Trump: grief, anger, bargaining, depression and soon, we hope, acceptance. This is seen in the House of Representatives, in the context that the House Speaker, Nancy Pelosi, is no longer captain of her ship, but is trying to tut-tut over a primary class of ignorant children, em, I mean eggs!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Swish! And as quick as that, the entire collusion picture turned on a dime and the Democrats are in panic mode looking for life boats to save themselves from their sinking ship. Of course, always keep in mind that with Democrats the inevitable never happens, the unexpected always does. So beware! The first inditements against the Obama-Clinton cabal has been launched against Obama’s White House counsel, Greg Craig. It appears he didn’t register as an agent for a foreign government, the Russian backed Ukrainian government, and lied about it! Oh, bother. It’s those silly little things that ‘elites’ fail to do that gets them into trouble? Isn’t it?
It started when Attorney General Barr was asked a direct question by a Democrat Senator on the Senate Intelligence Committee, publicly, that opened the door through which Conservatives are flowing to seize control of the fallacious collusion farce recently concluded by Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller. The Senate Democrats tried to force AG Barr to admit that he, Barr, at Trumps insistence, forced Mueller to end the Trump-Russia investigation prematurely before Mueller could find the certain evidence of Trumps collusion. No! Barr said that he and Mueller agreed that nothing was found that showed Trump or any of his associates, colluded with the Ruskies but, that many other questions on procedural issues concerning the FISA Warrants by the FBI, had to be investigated.
The senator then asked: “Do you mean there was spying going on?” Barr: “Yes, I believe spying (on Trumps campaign) did occur and it’s a big deal.” Barr correctly denied the agent corps of the FBI was involved, only the embedded Deep State intellectual elites who launched their treasonous Coup against Trump to save the Obama/Clinton empire and themselves, because Clinton didn’t win. Not the answer they Left was looking for, or their media collaborators either.
Immediately, an outraged Chuckie Schumer, in an attempt to stem the bleeding, demanded that Barr retract that damning statement at once, as a mere ‘conspiracy theory’ rumor. There’s the pot calling the kettle black! It’s too late! I suspect Barr had already set in motion the round up of the Obama-Clinton’s cattle herd of deep state criminals, starting with Obama’s White House Counsel Greg Craig. Then came Julien Assange, GRU Spy handler. The collapse coming!
At the same time the clueless Chair of the House Finance Committee, the elderly Democrat auntie Maxine Waters, always ready at a moment to be odd, thinking she exercised some superiority after crossing swords with Treasury Secty. Steve Mnuchin the day before, chose this scene to pose a question directly to several subpoenaed Wall Street bank CEO’s, that revealed her complete incompetence and lack of preparation, by asking them just what they were going to do to help alleviate the high and growing costs of college loans.Well, Nothing, because….!
Their answers were simple: they got out of the student loan business ten years and more ago, student loans being assumed by Obama’s government. The silence was deafening and immediately turned her committee into a Midway minstrel show showing the lowest depth of justifiable silliness to which a Democrat House committee can descend when led by an incompetent. While we may weep with joy at confirmation of their well earned reputations as stupid fools, let’s not take our eyes of those other three noisy Nimrods of intellectual acumen, Adam Schiff, Chairmen of the House Intelligence committee, Jerry Nadler, Chairman of the Judiciary committee, and not to be left out, Elijah Cummings of the Oversight committee.
The curtain is coming down but we cannot be complacent. Trump will not forget and we shouldn’t either. His end goal will be to bring down and totally destroy, Barak Obama. Bet on it!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Social Engineering America to Death
Social engineering schemes, such as the Progressive followers of Saul Alinsky (Democrats), keep applying by following his Rules for Radicals, constitute the deliberate and illegal attempt to change our society and our culture to meet societal norms that lay far outside the guidelines of the US Constitution. Indeed, Progressives firmly believe America is the center of all the world’s evils and the US Constitution that supports it, stands as an impediment to world social justice and must be done away with, one amendment at at time, if necessary.
Case in point, the constant progressive attack against the 2nd Amendment. It is the one defense Americans possess that can prevent the radical takeover of America. We also see a vigorous attack on our 1st Amendment rights coming from several fronts. Look at the first line”: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” That’s it, yet Progressives scream government(s) cannot recognize prayer, posting of the Ten Commandments or support Christian based activities because of some non-existent “Separation of Church and State” nonsense that’s not in there. As often as I have read that sentence, I’m still unable to lay my finger on any word that prohibits government from supporting or participating in any religious activity, not monetarily of course, but morally. Yet the “Left” persists on insisting that the ‘separation of church and state’ is a point of law not to be violated and we believe ‘em!
What the 1st amendment does state, unequivocally, is that Government shall not establish an official state church, a reaction to the religious turmoil that plunged Great Britain into bloody conflict for generations. That will become a mute point of course, when adherents of Islam start rising as elected government officials to the point they will, by their sheer numbers alone, out number and out vote non-muslims (infidels) and replace the Constitution with Sharia Law.
Free speech is also under attack, not so subtly, by the media, Facebook and Twitter crowd simply by not posting conservative opinions. The radical take over of many colleges and universities forbid Conservative speakers on campus. They will assault conservative students dispensing Trump hats, etc., and are encouraged by school administrations to do so. The Radicals have so scared college administrations with the threat of violence, most officials, if not already radicalized, dare not complain. If Conservatives assemble peaceably, they are attacked by radical goon squads (antifa’s, BLM) and even made to look like the conservatives started it.
Presently, Congressional Democrats adamantly refuse to protect our borders from invasion by the hoards of peons from Mexico and Central America, schooled to ask for ‘asylum.’ Suborning this invasion is to support social engineering designed to increase Progressives voter rolls. Now, the southern invasion is overwhelming the CBP’s efforts to stem the tide, another Alinsky rule, they will soon overwhelm our financial ability to support ‘em as well. Asylum requests should only be heard at US Embassy’s and Consulates, not at borders.
Why do we need to accept them? Because Democrats insisted “it was the thing to do, it’s who we are,” drawing on our sympathies as Americans who are always ready to help the poor and destitute, while they gun down, rape and murder our own citizens. That day, I believe, is soon coming to an end. We cannot afford to support other countries citizens. That doesn’t matter to Democrats. They’ll simply say take the funds from Defense and, you’re racist if you don’t! Trump will not do that, but he’ll take the funds from those countries we are already supporting.
Our banking laws are a hinderance to the control of unwanted foreign populations demanding to stay here because they’re already here. All foreigners here should be required to establish American banking accounts. No money sent abroad without an American bank account.
For example, If an American retires to Mexico, the retiree(s) cannot continue to maintain their American bank accounts. They must open a Mexican bank account. Why don’t we do that? Why can we not forbid the telegraphing of cash money orders via Wester Union to foreign countries, without going first through American Banks? Control the money and you control the population.
If we stopped financial support to them when they do get here, the monetary draw to come would cease. Those already here illegally, should be advised they have three months to sell their property, keep the receipts and return to their home countries or, the American government will do it for them and keep the proceeds to help defray the cost of their evacuation.
Finally, I want to know by what measure illegals are entitled to my Social Security money, my medicare benefits and our tax money for their education and housing. That was a Progressive Democrat idea, because “we’re good people and mean well.” Turn off the money spigot at all levels and the invasion(s) will cease. We owe these people nothing!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
Trumps Fearful Hold on Democrats
Some rabid Trump haters may be realizing the fake Russian collusion business is going nowhere. Not all of course, but painful as it might be, some know it’s time to pivot. Their guide still lies with Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicles recommendation to overwhelm the system(s) to the breaking point such as we are seeing at our southern border. So look for Illegal emigration to rise as the next hot topic along side health care, for the poor & indigent including the disease ridden illegals now infecting America with illness thought to be long gone.
Congress is still burdened with its dimwitted politicos like Pelosi, Nadler, Schiff, auntie Maxine, et. al., in the Democrat leadership. They are still blowing smoke about the failure of the Special Counsels to indite Donald Trump. Could the Mueller report still be fertile ground to be plowed for new accusations? Nope, ain’t gonna happen! They’ve got to look elsewhere and believe me, they will. Unlike Republicans, they never give up or roll over to the inevitable truth.
The Mueller Report did us a good turn. It revealed, regardless of the MSM’s ignoring it almost totally, that there was indeed criminal collusion, a conspiracy to commit treason. By lying to Congress, lying to Federal investigators and obstruction of justice rising to the level of Treason, a hanging offense, the conspirators created false evidence and narratives of the supposed criminality by Donald Trump. They provided false testimony to obtain warrants (FISA), to stop the Trump threat and protect the real criminality of their kindred spirits, Obama, the Clintons and the elite bureaucrats of the Federal Intelligence and law enforcement community.
When search warrants are requested by investigators, including FISA Warrants, our 4th amendment protections against unreasonable search and seizures “requires” that truthful probable cause, supported by evidence and oath or affirmation, must exist. That oath, given to a judge or magistrate, if knowingly false, constitutes a crime. But Judges can’t always know that and, In Trump’s case FBI’s oaths were believed because they were the FBI, armed with the highest of reputations. For Trump, the FBI investigation fell under the ruse of a counter-Intelligence inquiry. That does not negate the crimes of false swearing they conspired to commit in obtaining their warrants. There can be no possible other course of action here. If Mueller was honest and truthful, then the FBI and their coconspirators in the DoJ, lied to him as well.
What Mueller’s report has done was to destroy Americans faith in our system of federal justice, another point in Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals to take down existing governments. It revealed that a wicked self-serving elite bureaucracy, a “Deep State,” was no longer just a rumor of the tinfoil hat crowd, but is in fact a very real danger to our American representative form of government. Mueller revealed clearly to what depths the Deep State elites will go to protect their elite inner kingdom. They are dedicated to protecting their own because if they don’t they could all hang. The Progressives will (almost) endure any pain, seek any measure of possible influence ore commit any crime, including murder, to stay in power. Watch for the rats to leave the sinking Progressive ship. Brennan has already started with hi “I didn’t know,” nonsense.
How far has the rot of judicial favoritism spread? How about to Obama’s Chicago where an unknown actor in a silly TV soap opera, Jussie Smollett, desperate for notoriety and following right on the heels of the Mueller report serve as an example? Our system of justice can no longer survive leftist favoritism in addressing crimes simply because “they meant well” or didn’t like the candidate(s). So, here’s the real headline: Attention Democrats, the Mueller report is complete and the results are in. “Donald Trump’s your daddy!”
Remember, freedoms the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, let’s go get ‘em!
“My, Oh My, What A Wonderful Day”
“Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay, My, oh my, what a wonderful day, plenty of sunshine headin’ our way, Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee ay” … Brilliant sunshine as a matter of fact, as the Mueller Report will soon go into historic hibernation for future presidential scholars and doctoral students to pick over for their theses’ on how not to conduct an overt act of conspiratorial political treason against a president who is demonstrably tougher than they are.
Now, that it’s all over but the shouting, what will come out of it? Arrests, trials and imprisonment I hope, but we can’t bet on it as judicial corruption now even spreads to special people, as in the case of the very stupid and untalented actor, Jussie Smollett, released without charge because, presumably, he’s a stupid, untalented black actor. But that’s another story.
The Democrat Party, having worked so hard for so long and to nearly achieve their goal of Socializing America only to have the presidential prize snatched away from them by a bunch of deplorable’s who voted for an outsider, are truly experiencing the effects of Trump Derangement Syndrome. Their behavior is exposing for all to see, the real dangers of allowing unworkable religious and political philosophies to participate in our Representative government as equals.
We have been warned that we would enter a revolutionary phase in American politics, not seen since the blood letting of the Civil War, after Obama became president; one faction fixated on enslaving the entire American population to total government control, for their own good, a sure recipe for more blood letting, while the other faction, preaching the absolute need to ‘conserve’ the Constitution as the leading light and guide of our proven Representative form of government. Alas, never the twain shall meet. We’re in a death struggle.
Out of the mishmash of contending political belief’s, burning like the nuclear core of a growing star, grew a new political faction, the elected elites, composed of idiots who believed their own propaganda that got them elected, who then hired the busy little worker bees who make the bureaucratic Deep State, safe in their sinecure of federal employment, to run the show, make rules without our elected representatives approval and start heading America into the hands of a bureaucratic state not to be meddled with…. until Trump. Dog gone it!
Long ago, the leftists consumed the Democrat party and after doing so, the Progressives consumed the liberals and now, the Progressives are being eaten by Marxists, and soon, no
doubt, the Marxists will be consumed by tyrannically driven Communists, with all the odious apparatus of the Stalinist state to protect it, like the BLM’s, Antifa’s, anarchists and nihilists.
We can sing that happy song now, but these creatures of the Left refuse to be defeated and are already seeking the high ground to pivot to another tactic to stop Trumps rampage through their tattered plans for Americas internal conquest. Pelosi talks Health Care, AOC her Green New Deal, others rants that “the economy is not working for working people,” that the nation needs to alter course so “parents can put food on the table” and “no one is left behind” and, that damn wall had better not be built. Just tugs at the heart strings, doesn’t it?
The Left simply will not admit the truth, inconvenient as it may be, that Trump’s economic boom is benefiting all working people. The truth is not one of their operative words, deceit and lies are what works for them. The Democrats are on the ropes. Now is the time to strike them hard, spare no effort to destroy them before they destroy America. The coup criminals now exposed, cannot be allowed to go free. They must be destroyed, the sooner the better.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!
I’m dumbstruck when I consider all the money authorized and wasted by the Republican
controlled congress over the past two years, on the baseless Trump-Russia collusion fallacy
when the low hanging fruit of the Clinton’s RICO reeking cabal that is Bill and Hillary’s self
sustaining charitable foundation offers such low hanging fruit so ripe for the picking that even
the most incompetent federal prosecutor, even one with a mail order degree, could win.
The avowed criminal, former FBI Director James Comey, by his own admission, is one of those
low hanging fruits ready for easy harvesting. He should be a “slam-dunk” for prosecution. So is
Andy McCabe and Peter Strzok, Bruce Orr and the several previously disgraced attorneys
serving on Mueller’s team of Trump hating investigators. (Sen Stevens R-AK)
Now that Pelosi and her stable of mindless idiot socialists are soon to take over the House, the
GOP has finally decided, in its last three weeks of existence, to consider the crimes of the
Clinton Foundation ignored by the DoJ, and investigate ‘em themselves. It’s all Nonsense!
Pushed for time the GOP has now decided they had better look like they are doing something to
appease the base. But remember, most of these people are still part of the “uni-party’ that is the
deep state, many of them still hate Donald Trump.
Taking down the Clintons should be easy via her foundation. Hillary, the driving force of her
foundation’s corruption, unfortunately, lacks the people skills that should keep the little people
under her, the now mass of whistleblowers coming forward, from turning “states evidence” and
dropping a dime. Many have physical evidence proving her corruption and now we learn that
one whistleblower has been the recipient of a late night FBI search warrant. Why was that? He
already gave them everything he had. It was to shut him and other whistleblowers up.
The mafia does that for their own security except they don’t take chances; the whistleblower is
usually killed publicly, for all to see so that other witnesses will readjust their commitment to law
and order. Right now, a bunch of former Clinton employees, State Dept. employees and others,
who Hillary held in contempt as simply “little people,” servants beneath her dignity, are ready to
dump on her. So, let’s get it going.
The former senior executive levels of the FBI, Director James Comey, and his associates,
considered themselves sacrosanct when it comes to enforcing the law of the United States,
except when the law interferes with their own needs. At the moment, they want Trump out of
office before they lose everything and, hiding behind the facade of counterintelligence, they set
about fabricating a case against Donald Trump, because he won and their favorite, Hillary
Clinton, didn’t. That is injustice personified and corruption at its most apparent.
One of their early targets was Trumps National Security advisor, Lt. Gen. Flynn, former Director
of the DIA, with a distinguished thirty-year army career. Through ruse and subterfuge, they
tricked the general into making statements, not under Miranda warning, that they claimed were
lies. Lying to the FBI constitutes a serious crime if nothing else can be proven. It now appears
the Federal judge involved in the Flynn case has serious doubts about the FBI’s handling of the
Flynn case. Flynn pled ‘guilty’ just to avoid bankruptcy but, none the less, he was left near
destitute, in penury. That’s injustice personified. What do we learn from this tawdry business?
Stay out of politics? Perhaps! Trust the judiciary to do the right thing or absolutely never, ever
speak to or trust the FBI? All apply.
Remember, Liberty is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (13Dec18)
America is reeling under the continued onslaught and seemingly endless attacks on our culture, our
traditions, our elections and our laws by the Marxists Democrat party. How is it one wonders, that each
election where Democrat candidates fail to win, is deemed to be the fault of some Republican official or
laid at the feet of stupid white people who don’t know what’s best for them and voted the wrong way?
Their plan is a cunningly designed assault on the once considered fair election process to wear down
conservatives and cause Americans to lose so much trust in the process that they’ll just say, “to hell with
it!” and stay home on election days. That’s the aim of the Democrat Party, to achieve ultimate victory
without offering any plan that fits within the framework of the US Constitution. To constantly attack Trump,
Republicans and conservatives as the country’s main problem and its true failures is their constant goal.
‘How can American’s possibly be happy if some are more wealthy than others and the others are so poor
and destitute that they require government assistance?’ Let’s extrapolate that to: “why aren’t all
Americans provided living wage?” It’s the government’s responsibility to see that all its citizens are housed
and happy, free of health issues and fed, except veterans. Education is limited to what the government
thinks you need, not what you want. If the government can’t fund the benefits promised then the wealthy
can, so it becomes the government’s mission to redistribute their wealth by jacking up their “fair share.”
Like cancer in a living organism, the presence of Democrat polling and election officials almost surely
guarantees a predictable outcome. Voter count manipulation is rampant especially in Democrat controlled
urban centers. In some Philadelphia precincts for example, Democrat candidates swept 100% of the vote
count when in fact Conservatives complained they voted Republican and their votes were never reflected
in the count. A recount machine in Fl. overheated. That’s like saying the “dog ate my homework!”
Texas recently arrested a four or five member democrat voter fraud ring of election officials who face trial
and imprisonment. That’s only in Texas so far. In Broward Co., Fl., for some inexplicable reason, Brenda
Snipes, the supervisor of elections, previously cited for election irregularities has still retained her post
and is, once again charged with destroying ballots, stuffing rejected ballots into the uncounted pool and
other nefarious crimes that should have seen her jailed years ago. But, she’s black, she’s elderly and she
has a Ed.D as an educator and so therefore any attempt to remove her would be racist.
The Democrat party does not want a free and independent America and so it becomes imperative for
them to try to snatch governmental power away from that awful Donald Trump by hook or crook in order
to return to their already approved plan to reduce America to a third world nation status where people will
be required to live within the narrow confines of correct political think, like “Animal Farm.”
Our freedom is endangered and, if Obama’s plan to “fundamentally change America,” with or without him
at the helm continues, then we can expect Marxism to try to take sufficient hold of the reigns of
government and its institutions, that only a civil war could answer. Recall, the Dept. of Justice, the Internal
Revenue Service, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the State Department, were corrupted by the
Clintons and the levers of the tyrannical state were loosed on our populous by Obama. The reason they
did not succeed is because of Donald Trump. How do they answer? Ensure this doesn’t happen again by
taking over control of the election process. That’s what we are witnessing today in places like Florida,
Georgia and, I suspect, in Arizona as well. It’s why Scott Walker lost the governorship of Wisconsin and
many local elections fell into Democrat’s hands. It’s no longer politics as usual!
Democrats are not all omnipotent. They have their weaknesses like the aging leadership of Nancy Pelosi
and Chuckie Schumer so, there is some room for hope. Democrats face an uprising from the young super
Marxists gaining congressional seats and that will certainly stymie their aspirations for going after the
President. Too, many will face their own trial by fire when criminal grand jury inditement’s start rolling out
against them. We will wait and report while America reels in confusion.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (13Nov18)
5:00 am, 07 Nov 2018 – By now, most people are acquainted with national voting outcomes and realize
there was no wave, Red or Blue and American politics will remain a mishmash. Democrats regained the
House by 34, meaning two more years of stalemate. Republicans kept the Senate by increasing their hold
there by three. Missed by the media is that the candidates that Trump campaigned for all won. Trump
now will turn to the use of his veto pen. Military spending will slow, for two years at least, and spending for
illegals will be vetoed to death. It will be a wasted two years for Democrats, but the Judiciary will turn to its
original roots of strict constitutionalism. Watch Trump negotiate the art of the deal with Democrats.
Sorting out voting results for local and other state candidates and issues will take a while. That the US
House of Representatives slipped back into Democrat hands, while consistent with mid-presidential term
voting patterns, is still an issue that will ensure continued political conflict and an even wider divide
between Conservative and Socialist supporters of the direction America will take. Will this signal another
step toward a Venezuela and Cuba style life or a misstep of retaining Americans position as the worlds
economic and military steadying super power? Imagine, Nancy Pelosi once again as Speaker of the
House and that demented screeching mad Max(ine) Waters chairing the House Financial Committee. The
inmates are truly taking control of one wing of the asylum.
I lay the loss of the House of Representatives at the feet of Speaker Paul Ryan, a hopeless never
Trumper extrodinaire, whose lack-luster performance for supporting conservative trending Republican
candidates betrayed his desire for retaining a big government, ’business as usual,’ anybody but Trump
attitude. But, he’ll be gone soon and a rearrangement of the chairs on the Houses deck will commence
while the screaming Democrats start their inquisition trials against Trump and Kavanaugh. Wait for it.
Sadly, Scott Walker, three time winning Governor of Wisconsin, (don’t forget the recall) was outed by a
percentage point to Tony Evers, so watch as that state once again slips under the corrupt influence of
union thuggery. Kansas, whose Republican Attorney General, Kris Kobach, took a shot at the
Governorship lost to Democrat Laura Kelly, while Florida remained all “Red.” It is now safe for the DoJ to
indite losing Democrat candidate Andrew Gillum for his fraud crimes. California, under Gavin Newsom,
will continue to function as a pitiful example of Americas potential Venezuela outcome. Blackburn won the
Republican seat vacated by a RINO and McSally kept Arizona in GOP hands.
The good news is that most of the House Republicans whose seats were challenged and won by
Democrats, were Republicans who quit or retired leaving a vacant seat to be refilled. So be it! Most of the
emotional news worthy Senate contests fell favorably to Republicans, including Arizona, Texas. Democrat
Senators in battleground states who voted against Justice Kavanaugh, all lost and that includes
Missouri’s Macaskill. Michigan's splendid Republican candidate for Senate, West Point graduate and
combat veteran John James slipped below the waves, while a dead whorehouse owner in Nevada won
his House seat.
I’ll not continue with more election results because they’ll be all the news today. What I will say is that
America clearly stands at the edge of meaningless. The next several years will be a head butting contest
between a Constitutional, law abiding citizenry and Sanctuary City, open border loving Socialists.
What was revealed is that democrats gains came despite their having absolutely no program to run on
except “Impeach Trump.” The campaigns of Democrat candidates were all propaganda and fake news,
designed to move their candidate to the center politically, and avoid what they realize is a non-starter for
most Americans, the aura of being a true communist candidate.
Conservatives have two years to reconstruct their Congressional candidates to rid congress of the
remaining RINO’s. Pelosi, if she survives her own caucus, should be a boon to regaining the house in two
For Republicans, cleansing the institutions charged with the education of America’s children in our nearly
totally corrupted colleges and universities, must become a priority. Challenging them directly won’t work but making them redundant can. Conservatives must also keep up their pursuit of the Black and Latino
voters and convince them to leave the Democrat plantation for conservatism where they can have the
opportunity to prosper. The next time I use the term “Republican” and don’t have to hold my breath doing
so, will be when conservatives predominate in the Congress, the Senate remains Republican and Trump
starts his second term.
Watch for the Left to reengage their shock-troops to hit the streets in support of any issue they think
necessary to boost their limited power and, their power is limited. The swelling sanctuary city rolls will
economically collapse those leftist governments that have abandoned the rule of law while anarchy will
sweep their streets when they run out of tax payer funds. Expect Paul Ryan to challenge Trump for
President in 2020 but first, he’ll have to nudge former Governor of Ohio, John Kasich, out of the way.
For the next few years, bipartisanship will be a nonstarter. We’re in for an interesting two years and
Conservatives have a lot of work to do so, we cannot lose faith, but get out there and get busy; continue
the attack on the idiots and idiocy of the Left.
Finally, the good news is that I can now have my e-mail back. Daily, and I suspect most of you also,
delete hundreds of pleas for donations, double donations, split donations and etc. especially from
democrats PAC’s whining about being stabbed in the back and etc.
Today is the first day of Trump’s campaign for re-election. He’s a winner so let’s find politicians who will
work with him.
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way, now, go get ‘em! (07Nov18)
Seeing Obama back on the campaign trail and listening to his whining orotund nonsense about
“his” economy whilst calling President Trump a “Tin-Pot Dictator,” requires at least a one page
response from this observer. So, here it is: First, Obama’s legacy is fugacious.
Obama, as an individual, could never amount to anything that would even remotely resemble a
leader let alone a “tin-pot dictator” except perhaps for his jug ears. He’s too arrogant! After he
assumed the Presidency in 2009, he complained that he had inherited “the worse economy in
his lifetime” from George W. Bush. What he didn’t mention was that during the final two years of
the Bush Presidency, both houses of Congress were in Democrat hands led by Nancy Pelosi
and Harry Reid and it was they and they alone (Democrats) who were responsible for the
economic disaster that Obama blamed on Bush and gifted to Trump eight long failed years later.
In denial, it was Obama’s contention that Trump needed a “magic wand” to accomplish all the
things he promised. That Trumps promises couldn’t be kept because America simply doesn’t
manufacture any more and that tax cuts would not draw business back to American shores.
For eight years, this incompetent president misled us with how his marxist economy would
flourish, jobs would rise, affordable healthcare would cover all and, when it didn’t, his excuses
were how the many left-over challenges he faced were almost too difficult to overcome.
With Trump’s first round of tax cuts, his economic miracle bounded onto the political stage.
Americans suddenly found more money in their pockets, bigger paychecks, and more job
opportunities. Housing booms started and, while the economy is leveling off a bit at 3.5% GDP,
Obama, now a feckless Progressive has-been, is trying to stick his finger in the hole to plug the
“Red” leak pouring out over his shoes by Trump’s draining the swamp.
Barak bragged to a mega-crowd of almost two thousand cheering losers in Los Vegas: ”When
you hear all this talk about economic miracles right now, remember who started it.” Well, Barak
It’s not really that hard to remember who started it. His name is Donald J. Trump.
Obama can’t say which of his policies were responsible for Trump’s record low unemployment
numbers. He can’t explain how his “Unaffordable Health Care Act” increased taxes not only on
the rich but on anyone else too, or how he even remotely thought he had reduced poverty. Free
breakfasts and lunches to poor kids is not a plan to reduce poverty. Jobs are!
Actually, Obama’s schemes started falling apart at the 2010 election, continuing in 2012, then
2014 and, finally, when 2016 came and his heir apparent, Hillary, the Criminal, couldn’t close the
deal for Democrats, the whole Progressive shebang went nuts and are still raving mad!
Nothing is mentioned to remind voters about Obama’s foreign policy fiasco’s, the destruction of
Libya, the murder Gadaffie, the “Red Line,” the unholy cash payment to Iran’s mullah’s, the
murders in Behghazi, the Fast and Furious gun running deal to Mexican cartels, etc., etc., & etc.
Obama was a disastrous president for America and Trump is righting the ship of state.
With the next elections only days off, it’s more important now than ever to solidify Republican
seats if Trump’s economy is to flourish. The threat of a Democratic Blue Wave while real is
waning but we can’t take chances. It’s a jungle out there so, beware of Democrats. Remember,
freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go out there and VOTE! (25Oct18)
The United States has only seen the face of war one time. That time was during the Civil
War and was mostly in the Southern states from 1861 to 1865. It was an ugly time of brother
against brother and the first time total war was practiced on the civilian population by General
William T. Sherman.
In this the US has been blessed, but Europe, of course cannot say the same.
I watched the movie The Monument Men at last. I had resisted watching it in the past as I abhor
George Clooney and Matt Damon for their high handed, self righteous politics. However, since it
was in the $3.74 bin at the local big box store, I relented.
I came away with two points of concern.
Number one was how the face of war came very close to destroying all that was beautiful in the
arts and historical artifacts. If it had not been for a small, dedicated team that searched for,
recovered, protected and returned the precious works that had been stolen by the Hitler regime,
imagine how intellectually poor the world would be.
Hitler was planning on being the victor of the Second World War. He was so sure that he sent his
minions out to collect and store all of the arts he enjoyed as inventory for his plan for the great
As he fancied himself a great artist, he knew exactly the pieces he desired. Many were in the
Louvre, many were in private collections, such as the Rothschild’s. None of that mattered as he
had them stolen from wherever they resided.
Those artists whose work he didn’t care for were pulled from any and all sources and burned.
Contemporary artists like Picasso were beneath his high opinion, therefore no one else was
allowed to like or enjoy them either.
How very coincidental.
Hitler was a censor and an oppressor, and those were the least of his bad qualities.
No one dared to stand up to him allowing him to cause untold destruction and misery.
Number two is that the US is facing the same kind of potential travesty of freedom of expression,
and it cannot happen.
By allowing social media outlets like Google, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube to
censor who is free to put out information and who is not, the US and the world are at the
beginning of a real issue of freedom and the American way of life. If the media giants don’t like
or approve of opinions and facts, they are no different than the burner of books and arts of the
Third Reich. It isn’t necessary to agree with ideas and concepts, neither must they be true and
proven. Whoever posts them has the RIGHT to say what they please and those who see or hear
have the right to believe or ignore them.
This censorship is likened to Hitler’s defiance of the Treaty of Versailles. It was step one and the
new social media censorship is at step one.
This cannot be permitted. The First Amendment is protection against censorship.
Another disturbing movie The Book Thief, brought to life what happens if step one is breached
and permitted to thrive. This true story of an adopted German girl named Liesel whose family
were caught in the terrible time of Hitler and the Third Reich is heart wrenching in its tragedy.
Her family was hiding a Jew in their basement, and had been for quite a while. He was the son of
the man who had saved her father’s life during the First World War.
They were frightened to death when German soldiers came into town and were inspecting
basements in people’s homes. The people under Hitler had no personal rights, they could not
disallow the soldier from entering. They managed to hide the young man and escape detection,
but it was a nerve wracking affair.
The Fourth Amendment of the Constitution guards against unlawful search and seizures, while
setting guidelines for search warrants and other ways to legally enter a home.
That wasn’t the only time absolute law ran into Liesel’s family.
A man who had lived in the village his whole life was drug from his business one day, beaten
and taken away by the Gestapo.
He was charged with being a Jew because of his surname. His name was spelled with one letter
less than a typical Jewish name that sounded the same. He kept yelling that he was a German and
he was not a Jew. The whole village stood around to watch.
No one protested at all because of their fear.
The only one to come forward was Liesel’s father. He vouched for the man and earned a head
injury from the Gestapo. They took his name as they left the area. As his wife tended his wound,
he cried because he was terrified that his actions would cause them all to be taken away to the
Seems history is doomed to repeat itself. We are seeing a small example of guilty by accusation
in the news today concerning the Kavanaugh nomination to the Supreme Court, but this example
is not the only one. Someone casts out an accusation sans proof, of course, and the media circus
and the Soros paid protesters are running to the gallows, screaming for blood.
It is no better than the time of Hitler. Someone is accused without any concrete evidence, and
they are guilty. Maybe they are aren’t (yet) sent to a death camp, but even if cleared from the
charges, the residual taint is a long time fading.
The time to stand up is now. The time to put a stop to this is today. Mob rule is testing us. They
are hoping we will be soft and complacent. Good Americans MUST NOT let this pass as
Free thinking people such as Susan Collins are now persecuted and receiving death threats for
DARING to study the facts and draw her own conclusions. Those such as Joe Manchin who
stood up to the Democratic Party’s mandate that NO ONE was to vote for any Supreme Court
pick by President Trump are also in the line of fire by the Soros financed mob of spastic crazies
whose shame has NO bounds.
The first line of defense can be formed on November 6th, 2018. Everyone must vote for the
protection of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. Those who want “socialism” or worse, sharia
law must be stopped in November!
Remember, Socialism is just the training bra of Communism.
It gets the populace used to the tight restriction building up to the total loss of personal freedoms
and wealth in favor of the “State.”
Everyone has a stake in this game. If one allows for a faction to be persecuted and say nothing,
who will be there to protest when it turns on the same one who said nothing?
Make a mark today, be sure to vote and do not be silent!
