I received this in an email and I don't know if it's genuine, but it does sound like the Krauthammer of old.  The sender said that Mr. Krauthammer had taken time off for some surgery, and this is the first piece of writing from him in some time.  The sender believes it is real.  In any case, it certainly sounds like him.  R.I.P. Mr. Kraurhammer.

Charles Krauthammer was not a Trump fan in the beginning but his opinion changed...  This is his interesting take on Mr. Trump:

To my friends "of a different persuasion" I'm not trying to sell anything or anyone but I do feel this is an interesting take on our very controversial president who I truly believe is not Republican or Democrat.


A different take on Donald Trump: (a non-political agenda)

Trump Is Not A Liberal or Conservative, He's a 'Pragmatist.' (Definition: A pragmatist is someone who is practical and focused on reaching a goal. A pragmatist usually has a straightforward, matter-of-fact approach and doesn't let emotion distract him or her.)

"We recently enjoyed a belated holiday dinner with friends at the home of other friends. The dinner conversation varied from discussions about antique glass and china to theology and politics.

At one point, reference was made to Donald Trump being a conservative, to which I responded that Trump is not a conservative.

I said that I neither view nor do I believe Trump views himself as a conservative. I stated it was my opinion that Trump is a pragmatist. He sees a problem and understands it must be fixed. He doesn't see the problem as liberal or conservative, he sees it only as a problem. That is a quality that should be admired and applauded, not condemned. But I get ahead of myself.

Viewing problems from a Democrat liberal perspective has resulted in the creation of more problems, more entitlement programs, more victims, more government, more political correctness, and more attacks on the working class in all economic strata.

Viewing things according to the so-called Republican conservative perspective has brought continued spending and globalism to the detriment of American interests and well being, denial of what the real problems are, weak, ineffective, milquetoast, leadership that amounts to Barney Fife Deputy Sheriff, appeasement oriented and afraid of its own shadow. In brief, it has brought liberal ideology with a pachyderm as a mascot juxtaposed to the ass of the Democrat Party.

Immigration isn't a Republican problem, it isn't a Democrat problem, it is a problem that threatens the very fabric and infrastructure of America. It demands a pragmatic approach not an approach that is intended to appease one group or another.

The impending collapse of the economy wasn't a Liberal or Conservative problem, it is an American problem. That said, until it is viewed as a problem that demands a common sense approach to resolution, it will never be fixed because the Democrats and Republicans know only one way to fix things and the longevity of their impracticality has proven to have no lasting effect.

Successful businessmen like Donald Trump find ways to make things work, they do not promise to accommodate.

Trump uniquely understands that China's manipulation of currency is not a Republican problem or a Democrat problem. It is a problem that threatens our financial stability and he understands the proper balance needed to fix it.

Here again, successful businessmen, like Trump, who have weathered the changing tides of economic reality understand what is necessary to make business work, and they, unlike both sides of the political aisle, know that if something doesn't work, you don't continue trying to make it work hoping that at some point it will.

As a pragmatist, Donald Trump hasn't made wild pie-in-the-sky promises of a cell phone in every pocket, free college tuition, and a $15 hour minimum wage for working the drive-through at Carl's Hamburgers.

I argue that America needs pragmatists because pragmatists see a problem and find ways to fix them. They do not see a problem and compound it by creating more problems.

You may not like Donald Trump, but I suspect that the reason some people do not like him is because:

(1) he is antithetical to the "good old boy" method of brokering backroom deals that fatten the coffers of politicians;

(2) they are unaccustomed to hearing a president speak who is unencumbered by the financial shackles of those who he owes vis-a-vis donations;

(3) he is someone who is free of idiomatic political ideology;

(4) he says what he is thinking, is unapologetic for his outspoken thoughts, speaks very straightforward using everyday language that can be understood by all (and is offensive to some who dislike him anyway) making him a great communicator, for the most part, does what he says he will do and;

(5) he is someone who understands that it takes more than hollow promises and political correctness to make America great again.

Listening to Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders talk about fixing America is like listening to two lunatics trying to "out crazy" one another. Jeb Bush, John Kasich and Marco Rubio are owned lock, stock, and barrel by the bankers, corporations, and big dollar donors funding their campaigns. Bush can deny it, but common sense tells anyone willing to face facts is that people don't give tens of millions without expecting something in return.

We have had Democrats and Republican ideologues and what has it brought us? Are we better off today or worse off? Has it happened overnight or has it been a steady decline brought on by both parties?

I submit that a pragmatist is just what America needs right now. People are quick to confuse and despise confidence as arrogance, but that is common among those who have never accomplished anything in their lives (or politicians who never really solved a problem, because it’s better to still have an "issue(s) to be solved," so re-elect me to solve it, (which never happens) and those who have always played it safe (again, all politicians) not willing to risk failure, to try and achieve success).

Donald Trump put his total financial empire at risk in running for president and certainly did not need or possibly even want the job; that says it all. He wants success for the U.S. and her citizens because he loves his country.

I'm a conspiracy theorist.

This 'condition' started when it came to light that President Trump was dumping tons of $$$ into re-habing GTMO.  Odd thing to do since Obama tried his dead level best to close it down and give it back to Cuba.  But it IS happening.  Why do we need GTMO?

Theories have been flying on Twitter since Trump's inauguration.  These days thousands believe in 'Q' and the theories/info posted by this person/these people.  Here's one Q-link

And there are thousands who say 'Q' is a joke, a lie, something people dreamed up, like a political soap opera.

I enjoy reading this stuff, and while I'm not sure if Q is forecasting coming events, or creating the biggest fairy tale in history, there ARE lots of consequences in the postings that are hard to explain.

(If you read my previous post here entitled 'Maverick John McCain' you will see one of MY loony theories.)

The guy in this YouTube video is summing up the last couple of years of theories.  If you can get past the alarmist language, he throws out some stuff that's rather interesting, and is along the Q line from the last year.

If you're interested in checking Q-posts, here are some links.

The link below is where the QAnons post their theories.

This link is to a guy who 'translates' things Q posts.... he makes this stuff understandable....

For those on Twitter:

And last but not least, this guy cuts to the chase and says things are about to happen.  Funny thing is - I've been reading that 'things are about to happen' for a year and a half!  LOL

I offer these links as fun reading during a long, cold winter!

I've drifted away from 'blogger' and seems I'm spending more time on Twitter.  I enjoy Twitter but... it's hard to express your feelings in only 280 characters.

My last post here had to do with the Kavanaugh confirmation.  It makes me sick that what I HONESTLY BELIEVE was a scam perpetrated by Christine Blasey-Ford was ignored by the Republicans.  My previous post expanded on my thoughts and conclusions about Blasey-Ford's accusations.

Today I'm going to briefly give my thoughts on Senator John McCain. The person the media loved to call MAVERICK.

To me that was the name the press created for a pseudo-Republican.  Here's what I think about the Maverick John McCain.

I think McCain TRULY believed the national press adored him.

The press fed his ego for years...up to the point in 2008 when he ran for president against Barry Soetoro (a/k/a Barack Obama).  Then the press turned on him and the Kenyan won the election.

McCain despised Donald Trump.  He didn't try to hide the contempt he had for Trump. And vice versa

Trump won the presidential election against Hillary Clinton in 2016.  Let's look at the last two years.

McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer in July, 2017 - eight months after Trump won the presidency against Hillary Clinton.

McCain professed to be a Republican but he despised Trump.  The feeling, sadly, was mutual and NOT a secret.  McCain remained a vocal critic of Trump to the point of walking down to the floor of the Senate and ceremoniously giving a thumbs down on Trump's plan to end Obamacare.  I recall thinking what a POS McCain was for doing that, as ending Obamacare was one of the things Trump campaigned on.

Trump - not one to take shots without responding, often fired back at McCain.

On August 24, 2018 (11 months after McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer) McCain was taken off his cancer treatment regimen and it was announce that he died the following day - August 25, 2018.

In my opinion, all the above are MOSTLY FACTS.  Mostly....

One fact I have trouble with is a medical decision to remove a patient from cancer treatment and OOPS - he dies the next day.  Maybe I'm missing something, but THAT sounds like an unusual chain of events.  I know people who have died from cancer.  After being taken off the treatments, they are kept comfortable and as pain-free as possible.  They seldom die THE NEXT DAY.

Here is another fact:  President Donald Trump has been dumping money into repairing/updating GTMO -- the American prison facility in Cuba....Trump has planned to put international child sex traffickers there...Trump's plan is for these cretins to be tried by MILITARY TRIBUNALS in Cuba and incarcerated THERE.

My theory on the Maverick John McCain:

McCain despised Trump and the feeling is mutual.

McCain was removed from his 'cancer treatment regimen' and he died the next day.  (I repeat - seems if a patient is at the end of his/her life, their  treatment may be terminated and they are made as comfortable as possible until they die.  Unusual for said patient to die immediately... but I may be wrong.)

I think McCain (who was probably going to be prosecuted for treason for his involvement in the Steele Dossier) accepted a deal from the President he despised.

He (McCain) would 'die' and be transferred to GTMO.  In exchange for this, McCain would be 'honored' with a PRESIDENTIAL LEVEL sendoff.  Recall that McCain's body was transported to various locations VIA AIR FORCE 2, including laying 'in state' in the rotunda of the Senate Office Building. There was an entire WEEK OF BURIAL CEREMONIES!!!!

Why would Trump approve of a Senator he despised (SENATORS DO NOT HISTORICALLY GET THIS 'PRESIDENTIAL' SENDOFF) getting this kind of memorial in death??

I think McCain was secretly taken to GTMO to die, in exchange for a ROYAL FUNERAL!

I think McCain is STILL in GTMO, being treated for his cancer.  Perhaps he's being made as comfortable as possible.  It's been three months - McCain MAY have died.

Consider all his glorious funeral stops on the way to his final 'resting spot'.  Recall the vitriol in Meghan McCain's final comments.  SHE MADE THE FUNERAL POLITICAL.  I think McCain's family knew the truth, and while they were NOT happy with the 'end' of John McCain, they opted for the funeral of a HERO, rather than watching John be accused of treason, tried for treason, and dying as a traitor to America.

McCain's BODY was flown around the country in AIR FORCE 2!!!!  Name one other senator who has gotten that treatment from a president who despised him.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!!

McCain may in fact be dead, but he died at GTMO.

I have exhausted myself on Twitter, trying to work the story of this lying woman into 280 characters.  Even doing a THREAD of several tweets of 280 characters (including spaces) cannot express my complete insanity from all things Kavanaugh/Ford for the last couple of weeks.....soooooooooooooooooo

I will herein write my theory of the entire stinking mess that was the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation zoo. My opinion is THEORY backed up by a fact here and a fact there.

And away I go.

I will throw in at this point that Blalsey-Ford is a graduate of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill (which is my Alma Mater.)  This week UNC nominated Blasey-Ford for the distinguished-alumna award for “speaking truth to power” by accusing then-Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her when they were in high school.  I am one to let sleeping dogs lie.... the hearing is over, Kavanaugh was voted on and became an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court.  But when I read this it lit my fire and prompted me to respond HERE with my theory.  THIS, and $5.00 (??) will get you a coffee at Starbucks.

  • WASHINGTON, DC - SEPTEMBER 27: Christine Blasey Ford at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in the Dirksen Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill September 27, 2018 in Washington, DC. A professor at Palo Alto University and a research psychologist at the Stanford University School of Medicine, Ford has accused Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh of sexually assaulting her during a party in 1982 when they were high school students in suburban Maryland.


President Donald Trump nominated Judge Brett Kavanaugh to become an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States on July 9, 2018, filling the vacancy left by the retirement of Anthony Kennedy.

During July and August, Kavanaugh did 'Meet & Greets' with members of Congress.
The Senate Judiciary Committee began Kavanaugh's confirmation hearing on September 4 and it lasted until September 6.  The plan was for the confirmation VOTE to be on September 20th, so Kavanaugh would be on SCOTUS by the first Monday in October - the traditional opening day of the Supreme Court.  


During the last day of the hearings, Senator Feinstein produced the letter with Blasey-Ford's accusations.  The Judiciary Committee put everything on hold to check into this.  After much wrangling, Blasey-Ford agreed to testify before the committee on 9/27.  Kavanaugh agreed. This was set after much wrangling about who would go first, who would be present, would they be under oath, etc.  

Since Blasey-Ford was making the accusation, she went first.  After all, it would be hard for Kavanaugh to defend himself without knowing exactly WHAT Ford was accusing him of.  Blasey-Ford testified the morning of 9/27.  Kavanaugh testified after a 'break' on that same day. 

Here is the full testimony of each.

On the next day (Friday, I think) the Judiciary Committee voted the nomination of Kavanaugh OUT of committee and to the full Senate on the condition that there be a maximum 7-day continuance so the FBI could do further investigations into people named in both the Ford and the Kavanaugh testimony.  Nothing was discovered that would block the Kavanaugh nomination and on Saturday, October 6th he was confirmed and sworn in to be the 9th Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Now for my 'dark side' of this debacle. 

According to her testimony, Blasey-Ford visited a friend in late July in Rohobeth, MD. The person she visited was a longtime friend named Monica McLean.  McLean had worked in the FBI for a number of years and had retired shortly after Trump's election in 2016.

At the end of July, (maybe the 29th/30th) Ford sent a letter to Senator Diane Feinstein stating 1 - she had been sexually assaulted by Brett Kavanaugh and 2 - she wanted to remain anonymous.  Senator Feinstein sat on the letter until the last day of the Kavanaugh testimony, acquiescing to Ford's wish to remain anonymous. [I would bet the farm that DiFi had staffers digging like mad trying to confirm the accusations in the letter because someone leaked the letter, and supposedly the only people aware of the letter were Blasey-Ford's Congresswoman in California and Diane Feinstein.  Later when Ford lawyered up, they also saw the letter.]

A few days before the Ford/Kav testimony, I was bouncing around Twitter looking at tweets by lefties (I do this from time to time just so see how nutty they are getting) and I LITERALLY stumbled upon the tweet posted below.  The person who wrote the tweet APPEARS to have made it known that he knew Blasey-Ford and apparently someone had asked HIM to testify and support her accusations.  HERE IS HIS TWEETED REPLY.  I took this screenshot.

I nearly fell out of my chair!  There had been Tweets that she was a Never-Trumper and had signed a petition when Trump was supposedly separating kids from their parents at the border. But now we see she may have been a vicious activist.


Then this came out a few days after her testimony:
  • "In a sworn statement provided to the Senate Judiciary Committee, a man who claims to be an ex-boyfriend of Christine Blasey Ford (for 6 years!) says that he personally witnessed Ford coach a friend on how to take a polygraph exam. If true, it would mean Ford provided false testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee last week when she claimed she had never had any discussions with anyone about how to take a polygraph."

[She lied under oath.] She had likely coached BFF McLean on taking a polygraph back when McLean was applying for a job at the FBI.  After all, Blasey-Ford IS a psychologist - who better to coach someone on LIES!

The plot thickens.

Then on FRIDAY before the swearing-in was planned, Rush Limbaugh mentioned that one of the witnesses Blasey-Ford had listed in her letter was a long-time friend named Leland Kyser, and that in the letter to DiFi she was referred to as a 'HE'.  [No idea how Rush learned this but it confirmed my theory in my mind.]

And herein lies my theory.....

Blasey-Ford goes to Rohobeth MD in July, 2018, to visit her BFF from high school named Monica McLean (ex-FBI).  These two plotted a 'story' to take Kavanaugh down.  McLean wrote the letter, where she referenced a witness to Ford's claim - a wittness named Leland Kyser, and McLean said HE was a long time friend of Ford's.  McLean didn't know Kyser and had no idea HE was a female.  That is proof in my mind that Blasey-Ford did NOT write the letter to Di-Fi.

All of Blasey-Ford's social media was scrubbed - likely by her BFF McLean (I mean, wouldn't an FBI agent know how to do that??) which makes me think Ford was an 'activist' on Facebook....

Add the Tweet from long-time friend Timothy LeBlanc, saying she wished someone would accuse GORSUCH of rape.... and you have the conspiracy to take down Kavanaugh.  Blasey-Ford played the star role in a work of fiction written by Monica McLean.

Blasey-Ford gave an awesome performance on the morning of 9/27.  McLean was sitting behind Ford and her attorneys smiling.  All the senators on the committee were impressed and found her believable, even with her whiny voice that made her should like a genuine valley girl.  High 5's all around in the ladies' room.

T H E   P L A N  W A S ..... 
K A V A N A U G H   W O U L D   W I T H D R A W   H I S   
N A M E   F R O M   C O N S I D E R A T I O N.....


Sadly for Blasey-Ford, Kavanaugh raised his hand and swore to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing BUT the truth.  And he came out fighting for his life, his family, his reputation and his career.  His performance came from his heart!  He was the one telling the truth.  

The wheels fell off Ford's work of fiction.  
She had lied under oath over and over and over.  
She is lucky she is not in prison, because lying under oath in a congressional hearing is a FELONY.

As I write this, the loony left is planning to impeach Kavanaugh if they win the House in three weeks.  They still believe Ford!  


This is the letter Ford sent to DiFi - copied from the NYT:

July 30, 2018


Senator Dianne Feinstein

Dear Senator Feinstein:

I am writing with information relevant in evaluating the current nominee to the Supreme Court. As a constituent, I expect that you will maintain this as confidential until we have further opportunity to speak.

Brett Kavanaugh physically and sexually assaulted me during high school in the early 1980's. He conducted these acts with the assistance of his close friend, Mark G. Judge.

Both were 1-2 years older than me and students at a local private school. The assault occurred in a suburban Maryland area home at a gathering that included me and 4 others.

Kavanaugh physically pushed me into a bedroom as I was headed for a bathroom up a short stairwell from the living room. They locked the door and played loud music, precluding any successful attempts to yell for help.

Kavanaugh was on top of me while laughing with Judge, who periodically jumped onto Kavanaugh. They both laughed as Kavanaugh tried to disrobe me in their highly inebriated state.

With Kavanaugh's hand over my mouth, I feared he may inadvertently kill me.
From across the room, a very drunken Judge said mixed words to Kavanaugh ranging from "go for it" to "stop."

At one point when Judge jumped onto the bed, the weight on me was substantial. The pile toppled, and the two scrapped with each other.

After a few attempts to get away, I was able to take this opportune moment to get up and run across to a hallway bathroom. I locked the bathroom door behind me.

Both loudly stumbled down the stairwell, at which point other persons at the house were talking with them. I exited the bathroom, ran outside of the house and went home.

I have not knowingly seen Kavanaugh since the assault. I did see Judge once at the Potomac Village Safeway, where he was extremely uncomfortable seeing me.

I have received medical treatment regarding the assault. On July 6, I notified my local government representative to ask them how to proceed with sharing this information. It is upsetting to discuss sexual assault and its repercussions, yet I felt guilty and compelled as a citizen about the idea of not saying anything.

I am available to speak further should you wish to discuss. I am currently vacationing in the mid-Atlantic until August 7th and will be in California after August 10th.

In confidence,

Christine Blasey

Pala Alto, California


Received the following in an email from my sister-in-law.  Very interesting....

Everyone needs to do some homework tonight....You ask why Dr. Christine Blasey-Ford would do this? I’ll give you 4 reasons:  
1) she owns a major portion of the company that makes the morning after abortion pill and she is afraid Kavanaugh will overturn Roe v Wade, therefore making her million dollar empire go caput.   

2) She’s a professor at the same college (Palo Alto U) where Diane Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum, is on the board of directors, she has worked with Blum on the “resist Trump” movement for two years.  

3) Dr. Blasey-Ford’s brother,  Tom Blasey, is business partners with Peter Strzok’s cousin Jill Strzok for a company called Exelis Inc. enough said there.  

4) Feinstine and Chuck Schumer appointed lawyers set up three GoFundMe pages for her the week BEFORE she testified, which are currently up to over a million dollars for her to keep as payment for her testimony. 

I can go on if you would like... Don’t believe for one minute this “professor” came out of nowhere.

10/2/2018 - an interesting Christine Blasey Ford update!
BREAKING: Fox’s @johnrobertsFox obtains letter from Ford ex-boyfriend alleging: dated for 6 yrs, never told of sex assault, Ford coached friend on taking polygraph, flew frequently w/o expressing any fear of flying/tight spaces/limited exits. Doesn’t want to b/c “involved”.

The sworn statement from Ford’s ex-boyfriend directly contradicts what Ford repeatedly told the Senate under oath last week about her alleged lack of experience with polygraph exams, suggesting that Ford may have lied to the Senate panel.

The following article has (according to Truth or Fiction and Snopes) has been misattributed to Dr. Jack D. Minzey as the last of his works before he died on Sunday, April 8, 2018.  Jack was head of the Department of Education at Eastern Michigan University as well as author of numerous books, most of which were on Education and the Government's role.

The Truth seems to be that a gentleman named Daniel Greenfield wrote and delivered the commentary during the South Carolina Tea Party Convention Speech in January 2018. HIS original is titled, ‘The Second Civil War,’ and was posted on YouTube on January 21, 2018.  That video is included below.

How do civil wars happen?

Two or more sides disagree on who runs the country. And they can't settle the question through elections because they don't even agree that elections are how you decide who's in charge. That's the basic issue here. Who decides who runs the country? When you hate each other but accept the election results, you have a country. When you stop accepting election results, you have a countdown to a civil war.

The Mueller investigation is about removing President Trump from office and overturning the results of an election. We all know that. But it's not the first time they've done this. The first time a Republican president was elected this century, they said he didn't really win. The Supreme Court gave him the election.

There's a pattern here.

What do sure odds of the Democrats rejecting the next Republican president really mean? It means they don't accept the results of any election that they don't win. It means they don't believe that transfers of power in this country are determined by elections.

That's a civil war.

There's no shooting. At least not unless you count the attempt to kill a bunch of Republicans at a charity baseball game practice. But the Democrats have rejected our system of government.

This isn't dissent. It's not disagreement. You can hate the other party. You can think they're the worst thing that ever happened to the country.  But then you work harder to win the next election. When you consistently reject the results of elections that you don't win, what you want is a dictatorship. Your very own dictatorship.

The only legitimate exercise of power in this country, according to Democrats, is its own. Whenever Republicans exercise power, it's inherently illegitimate. The Democrats lost Congress. They lost the White House. So what did they do? They began trying to run the country through Federal judges and bureaucrats. Every time that a Federal judge issues an order saying that the President of the United States can't scratch his own back without his say so, that's the civil war.

Our system of government is based on the constitution, but that's not the system that runs this country. The Democrat's system is that any part of government that it runs gets total and unlimited power over the country.

If the Democrats are in the White House, then the president can do anything. And I mean anything. He can have his own amnesty for illegal aliens. He can fine you for not having health insurance. His power is unlimited. He's a dictator.

But when Republicans get into the White House, suddenly the President can't do anything. He isn't even allowed to undo the illegal alien amnesty that his predecessor illegally invented. A Democrat in the White House has 'discretion' to completely decide every aspect of immigration policy.

A Republican doesn't even have the ‘discretion' to reverse him. That's how the game is played. That's how our country is run. Sad but true, although the left hasn't yet won that particular fight.

When a Democrat is in the White House, states aren't even allowed to enforce immigration law. But when a Republican is in the White House, states can create their own immigration laws. Under Obama, a state wasn't allowed to go to the bathroom without asking permission. But under Trump, Jerry Brown can go around saying that California is an independent republic and sign treaties with other countries.

The Constitution has something to say about that.

Whether it's Federal or State, Executive, Legislative or Judiciary, the left moves power around to run the country. If it controls an institution, then that institution is suddenly the supreme power in the land. This is what I call a moving dictatorship.

Donald Trump has caused the Shadow Government to come out of hiding: Professional government is a guild. Like medieval guilds. You can't serve in it if you're not a member. If you haven't been indoctrinated into its arcane rituals. If you aren't in the club. And Trump isn't in the club. He brought in a bunch of people with him who also are NOT in the club. 

Now we're seeing what the pros do when amateurs try to walk in on them. They spy on them, they investigate them and they send them to jail. They use the tools of power to bring them down.

That's not a free country.

It's not a free country when FBI agents who support Hillary take out an 'insurance policy' against Trump winning the election. It's not a free country when Obama officials engage in massive unmasking of the opposition. It's not a free country when the media responds to the other guy winning by trying to ban the conservative media that supported him from social media. It's not a free country when all of the above collude together to overturn an election because the guy who wasn't supposed to win... WON. 

Have no doubt. We are in a civil war.

This war is between conservative volunteer government and a leftist Democrat professional government.

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. If you don't know where that is, just Google it from the sidelines. Hold a musket ball in your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or two. There won't be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get a real experience. 

Then take a knee.

Take a knee at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces...the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.

Go spend a week in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam or from Khe San to Saigon... Anywhere will do. REAL Americans died in all those jungles. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well..and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

Then take a knee.

Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110 degree heat... Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress... Your number won't be printed on it unless your number is up! You'll need to stay hydrated but there won't be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You're on your own.

There's a lot of places to take a knee. Real Americans have given their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That's what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.

While you're on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken...but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains...every inch marked by an American life lost serving that flag you protest.

No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans...just American men and women...delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm us...blazing a path so you would have 'the right to take a knee.'

You haven't an inkling what it took to get you where you are; but your 'protest' is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave long after your jersey is issued to another...

If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on Sunday and we'll both kneel before Almighty God. 

We'll thank Him for preserving this country for as long as He has. We'll beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We'll appeal to Him for understanding and wisdom. We'll pray for liberty and justice for all...because He is the one who provides those things.

And there will be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the home of the brave.

It goes like this...

Hang on to your hats, ladies and gentlemen, June is going to be a wild political ride.

Every single week in June, major U.S. Supreme Court decisions will be announced. Every Tuesday in June, primaries will be held. Globally significant talks between the U.S. and North Korea are in June.

In June, we will likely see more indictments resulting from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s probe into whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Russian government during the 2016 presidential race. But will the June indictments be close enough to home to have any political fallout?

I doubt it. After all, Mueller already announced in April that President Trump was not a criminal target in the investigation. And then there is this: Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, had his full security clearance restored (after 7-hours with Mueller team) in May. Ivanka Trump’s full security clearance was restored in May.

We will also likely see a report in June by Department of Justice Inspector General Michael Horowitz critical of how the FBI handled the Hillary Clinton email investigation. That report will give President Trump all the Twitter ammunition he needs to discredit the Justice Department and the FBI, offsetting any political fallout from the Russian collusion probe.

By the way, a hearing has been scheduled by the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee for June 5 at 10 AM titled, “Examining the Inspector General’s First Report on Justice Department Decisions Regarding the 2016 Presidential Election.”

May was a Positive Month for the Trump Referendum

May turned out to be a great month for the president. Here are some of the highlights:
  • Gallup announced that 67% Americans say now is a good time to find a good job (only 45% during Obama Administration and 47% during GW Bush Administration)
  • CBS News poll showed 68% of Americans credit Trump for economy
  • Trump’s Real Clear Politics 44% “Job Approval” (respectable/trending upward)
  • Unemployment dropped to 3.9%, lowest in 17 years
  • African-American and Hispanic unemployment set record lows
  • Gina Haspel sworn in as first woman to head CIA
  • U.S. opened embassy in Jerusalem
  • Three Americans were released from North Korean prisons
  • American Josh Holt was released from prison in Venezuela
  • Jack Johnson (1878-1946), first black heavyweight champ, was pardoned
  • Signed executive orders rolling back civil service protections
  • Stormy Daniels and her lawyer lost credibility
And of course, the U.S.- North Korean Summit on denuclearization and Korean reunification was salvaged in May, now back on track for June 12.

June is busiest month of the year for primaries and SCOTUS decisions

June is the busiest month of the year when it comes to the political elections calendar, with 17 states holding primary races. By comparison, there are none in July. However, 16 states have primaries in August. There are five more in September. Here is the June list:
  • June 5: California, Montana, N Jersey, Alabama, S Dakota, Mississippi, N Mexico and Iowa
  • June 12: Primaries in North Dakota, Virginia, Nevada, South Carolina, Maine
  • June 19: Washington, DC
  • June 26: Utah, Colorado, Maryland, Oklahoma
June is the final month of this term of the U.S. Supreme Court. Major decisions coming in June include everything from abortion and religious freedom to reapportionment and the Trump travel ban.

SCOTUS to decide Trump travel ban and LGBT rights to a wedding cake

Major U.S. Supreme Court decisions coming in June deal with privacy rights to cell phone data, state and local sales taxes on internet purchases, and when it’s permissible for a state to purge inactive voters from the registration rolls.

Here are a few decisions coming in June of interest to most North Carolinians:
  • EXTREME PARTISAN GERRYMANDERING: Is it constitutional for the legislative majority in a state that is roughly 50%/50% Republicans and Democrats to draw their party a 75%/25% “extreme partisan advantage” in the number of friendly congressional districts?
  • LGBT RIGHTS VS. RELIGION: Is it constitutional for a conservative Christian baker to refuse to make a wedding cake for a gay couple because of religious convictions?
  • TRUMP TRAVEL BAN: Do presidents have the constitutional authority under U.S. immigration laws to ban travelers from countries where terrorist activity is heavily concentrated, even if all the countries banned are predominantly Muslim?
The biggest political prize of 2018 is the U.S. Senate majority (now a 51/49 Republican), because the U.S. Senate will decide the next U.S. Supreme Court justice. Each U.S. Senate candidate running in the fall 2018 races will be forced to take a stand on the Supreme Court’s decisions coming out in June.

Bottom line: The 2018 midterm elections are coming down to the highly anticipated Democratic wave versus the Trump seawall of successes. The economy/jobs/wages. Government reform/draining the swamp. Trade deals. Military might. North Korean denuclearization and reunification with South Korea. All now building towards a positive referendum on the White House this fall.

But, that could all change in June.

Politically, June is on track to becoming the most consequential month of the midterm election year.

Hang on to your hats!
