PCC Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Pensacola Christian College wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award for expelling Allen Armentrout, a student who peacefully exercised his 1st Amendment right in Charlottesville, VA last week.

His statement to the Pensacola News Journal was ignored by his school, who apparently succumbed to the media meme that you must deny your ancestors and history, else you’re a violent Nazi White Supremacist.

The college administration failed to show a violation of their rules that would apply to someone exercising their 1st Amendment right. Makes one wonder if any of the anarchists who actually were violent were expelled from school?

“I have been released from my school and will be unable to return to college to finish my senior year. I’m processing this and making adjustments to my life to compensate for this scrutiny.”

One thing is certain, he is consistent in his convictions, and not a denier of his family history.

Armentrout later told the News Journal he made the trip to Virginia because the KKK, Neo-Nazis and other groups are destroying the history of his ancestors and he wants to share “the true history” of the American South. He said Neo-Nazis have wrongly “latched on” to Confederate history.

Here he is in Pensacola last March.

What’s different this time? The national “news media” made him famous, and he exercised his 2nd Amendment right too! Oh the nerve.

For this reason, Pensacola Christian College wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day award.

Can you say “lawsuit?”

The Anarchists Are Coming

You’ve seen them in Berkely, in Charlottesville, and in Durham. I’m speaking of groups like Antifa, formerly of the “Occupy” generation, only more violent. Funded in part by George Soros funded groups. Rent-a-mob for all practical purposes.

Rewind to 2008, when the country was so full of hope and change. Americans elected the first Black president. Americans thought, wrongly so, that this would be the end of racial strife and we could all relax. Eight years later, Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton lost to an outsider. Not just an outsider, a Republican outsider.

Blaming everyone but herself for her loss, Hillary was a most ungracious loser by launching what she called “The Resistance.” And, soon to be joined by President Obama.

Since then, Democrats have played the race card on a daily basis, and, every other sub-set of society they can delineate card. And what better way to exploit Race than to attack Robert E. Lee, a Confederate general who opposed both slavery & secession–to symbolize the evils of slavery & secession.

The result, civil unrest. Democrats thrive on it. They incite it, and if all hell breaks loose, it is somehow justified.

Tom Perez, the new head of the Democratic National Committee, did his part to incite unrest by this email he sent out Tuesday night. After President Trump’s third condemnation of the violence, Perez blasts an email (below) from the DNC.

Don’t hold your breath until someone from the Fake News Media puts a mic in Sen. Schumer’s (or Obama, Clinton) face and asked to comment on Chairman Perez’s lie about Trump and calling for democrats to “Rise and organize.” And, in light of the civil unrest going on in the country, does he think it is responsible to encourage violence?

In light of what’s going on in Pensacola today about removing a Civil War Era monument, don’t be surprised if the Clinton/Obama/Perez/Soros inspired anarchists arrive in Pensacola some day.

 

Pensacolans Need To Know

OK, so now it’s time to be a little pro-active. And I mean, pro-active over demonstrations getting out of hand, like we saw in VA and NC. Where the police were held back until it was too late.

We deserve to know that if a legal and permitted protest or demonstration is going on, the police will be there to insure the safety and the protection of the permitted group and their constitutional rights, should a rowdy and violent group (from any side) try to crash it, disrupt it, and hurt people.

Pensacolans need to know! We want to get the Mayor, the Pensacola Chief of Police, and the Escambia County Sheriff on the record, TODAY. Do you have our back from a public safety standpoint, or not? There is no gray area in public safety, or the 1st Amendment.

You Don’t Say . . .

Post Charlottesville, a teachable moment has presented itself in how the media and their tools, that would be the Democrat Party, work.  As described HERE, what happened in Charlottesville was in no way representative of the people who live there, Virginians, or Americans in general.

Another thing you can count on is the reaction from the media and party activists like Mary Anne Marsh. They see everything from their identity politics prism. They do not see America in a macro sense like Trump and most Republicans do, as Americans within a border. They only see many disparate groups of people as victims. And as such, present themselves as the solution to those affected and, or course, Republicans as the reason for their troubles.

This is the reason the media and agitators like Mary Anne Marsh rush to the TV camera and mic to call out President Trump for what he did not say. You see, if you call out the violent behavior as perpetrated by “many sides,” which was the case, then you are accused of being supportive of a group who participated in the violence that they choose to name.

Make no mistake about the reason for their faux outrage and bogus accusation. That Trump is protecting those people “who supported him” in the presidential campaign by not calling them out. See, the way Barack Obama operates, you call them out right away, before you know the facts. Well, unless they were Islamists, then we caution not to jump to conclusions. Remember how the “police acted stupidly,” and Trevon Martin was so innocent and, if he had a son would have looked “like him?” This is how Democrats are programmed. It’s in their genes, jeans and panties.

So when Mary Anne Marsh says oh, President Trump did not say that he condemned Neo-Nazis, or Racists, or Fascists, that it is because they are supporters of his, and that makes him a proponent for same. As if any candidate can control how someone votes and who they support. Democrats do control how dead people vote, but that’s another story.

But it doesn’t stop there. The meme has to be to connect not only Trump to these racists, but everyone who voted for him too. She listens to David Duke, like she listens to Kim Jong-un, when the racist Duke says that Trump was fulfilling his commitment to America. In her and the media’s little mind, that is a “dog whistle” that means he supports racists and anarchists; not creating jobs, boosting the economy, or protecting our national security.

Confirming all of that, is her assertion that “Most of America is starting to turn their back on Donald Trump . . . the world, and Republicans.”

None of which could be further from the truth. Bottom line, this is how they roll, and, hopefully will lead to the irrelevance of the Democrat Party, where the haters really are.

Not Charlottesville

The problem with history is not that it is history. It’s that some people today either deny it, or don’t know it, which manifests itself with all this monument nonsense. You either want history to stay where it belongs, or you want to resurrect it for political (if not revolutionary) gain.

What happened in Charlottesville was in no way representative of the people who live there, Virginians, or Americans in general. Virginia is in “the South,” History is what it is.

To illustrate, below are two tweets from Dinesh D’Souza.

Here are some of the “many sides” of fringe groups where violence comes from. Some of which were on display in Charlottesville, VA yesterday.

  • Antifa
  • Neo-Nazis
  • BLM
  • KKK
  • White Supremacists
  • Black Supremacists
  • Muslim Supremacists

Now if you want to include where some of the motivation for these groups come from, you can look to where you should least expect it. From the media, and Democrats in Washington. Partners who like to conflate 1st Amendment rights to speech and assembly with anarchy, for which there is no “right.”

This is what defending the 1st Amendment looks like.

Back the Blue.

 

Sen. McConnell (R-KY), Wins M.R.I.O.T.D. Award

Reacting to President Trump’s disappointment in Congress for their failure to repeal Obamacare already, Sen. McConnell responds with, well, the president is new at this government thing, and he doesn’t understand how fast things work in Washington.

Unless you just arrived from behind the Iron Curtain, you know that the Senate Majority Leader, Sen. McConnell, has told Americans that he can’t repeal Obamacare unless he gets control of the House. Americans believed him, and responded. In 2010, Americans voted him that control. Then McConnell said well, we don’t have the Senate. In 2014 Americans voted him that control. Then McConnell said, well hey, the President (Obama) would veto it anyway. We can’t repeal it without also having a R in The White House.  It took seven years of the democratic process to give the majority “leader” everything he asked for.

For Sen. McConnell to act all indignant over his failure of leadership to do what he said he would do, “on the first day” of the 115th Congress, eight months after the first day, Sen. Mitch McConnell (RINO-KY) wins the Most Ridiculous Item Of The Day Award.

Rush Limbaugh weighed in on McConnell’s retort to the president. And explains it all in a way that McConnell and the RNC, and Americans can understand. One thing is for sure, McConnell needs to be primaried and gone.

How N. Korea & Iran Got Nuclear

And why we are where we are now.

Nuclear proliferation in North Korea and Iran is history. You might ask, how did that happen? Fair question, especially when you recall what President Clinton and President Obama told us about their “deals” with the respective countries. It will also give you an appreciation for the problem that President Trump inherited from his predecessors that has metastasized to where it is today, with North Korea threatening to attack the U.S. and its territories with nuclear weapons.

Here’s what President Clinton said about the deal he and Sec. of State Madelyn Albright crafted.

That turned out real well didn’t it.

Not to be outdone, another Democrat President, Barack Obama, crafted a deal with Iran thought to be impossible, getting Iran to back off of their nuclear weapons program. He wanted it so bad, for his (ostensibly good) legacy, that part of “the deal” was a prisoner swap three days before President-elect Trump was to be sworn in.

In his Sunday morning address to the American people, Obama portrayed the seven men he freed as “civilians.” The senior official described them as businessmen convicted of or awaiting trial for mere “sanctions-related offenses, violations of the trade embargo.”

In reality, some of them were accused by Obama’s own Justice Department of posing threats to national security. These civilians, that he called businessmen, were engaged in rather unique businesses. Most having to do with missile guidance and nuclear technology, weapons trafficking, and connections to Hezbollah, the U.S.-designated terrorist organization.

Now you know how successful, or how bad, the “deal” President Obama made turned out. For all practical purposes, there is no deal, and everything Obama said about how dangerous Iran would be had he not done this deal are coming to fruition today with this deal.

He said “We do not have to accept an inevitable spiral into conflict, we certainly shouldn’t seek it.” What we have to deal with is North Korea and Iran (the largest State sponsor of terrorism) sharing their nuclear technology, making the world a far more dangerous place.

Thank you President Obama for making a bad situation worse, and leaving your successor with a more dangerous world and less options to avoid conflict.

In response to the ongoing threats and missile tests from the DPRK, President Trump calls them out to stop, or the regime will feel the “fire and fury” of the United States.  You could interpret that as the beginning of negotiations with someone who means business. What happens next is up to Kim Jong-un. Predictably, the media’s reaction to the president’s choice of words is that it is very different from the rhetoric of the last three presidents. Well, YEAH! Their rhetoric combined with the Clinton/Albright “deal” was so effective in ending DPRK’s nuke program. Wasn’t it?

It might help to bring some perspective to how President Trump views the belligerent and threatening behavior of North Korea today by seeing how he felt about it in 1999, the day before he left the Republican Party to register Independent.

You decide how in tune the President is to what is going on in the world, and consistent about it. He was right then, and he is right now.

No More Mr. Nice Guy

The appeasement & naivety of Presidents Bill Clinton, GW Bush, and Barack Obama are responsible for the nuclear DPRK and Iran we see today. Not Trump. Pre-emptive action is better than a retaliatory one. Not only is it better, for us, but protecting the U.S. from rogue regimes with nuclear capability who threaten to attack us on a regular basis is the responsibility of the Commander In Chief. The enemy doesn’t get a free hit.
 
Is it all fake news from anonymous sources? If true, is the intelligence community right this time? If you were the President, what would you do? Sacrifice a few cities to see if Kim Jong-un is serious, or take his sorry ass out? Practically ensuring a devastating artillery attack on Seoul, South Korea.
 
Moreover, are the American people up to the task? Would they succumb to nuclear blackmail? Would they let history repeat itself and take the Neville Chamberlain route, sacrificing a few American cities with millions of casualties?
 

Regardless of whether the American people would support the President if he chose to act preemptively, it isn’t our decision to make. It is only his. And the time to act is sooner than later. There are no good options with this Axis of Evil actor.

Not long after GW Bush was President, he was thrown into being a wartime president after 9/11/2001. The way things are going, and unless Kim John-un changes his tune, and quickly, I’m afraid that President Trump, already inheriting the war on terror, will be the next wartime president. Only with North Korea, it shouldn’t be a long one.

Since the story broke today, Kim Jong-un is already threatening to bomb Guam. His big mistake.

The Lunch Counter supports President Trump. Unlike recent past presidents, this one doesn’t bluff, nor does he kick the can down the road. I trust him to fix the problem he was given.

Ceiling? What Ceiling?

Raise the debt ceiling? HELL NO! Get ready for it because you know it’s coming when the pols get back to Washington.

For all the Obama administration, there never was a budget proposed and passed by congress. There were only CR’s, continuing resolutions. That was Obama’s flying-by-the-seat-of-his-pants style of budgeting.  Funding his agenda without having to show what it was for or how much it would cost. That, and year after year of raising the debt ceiling is how he managed to double the national debt to over 20 trillion dollars during his eight years in office.

Not proposing and passing a budget, waiting until just days before they run out of borrowed money from the last CR, Congress will raise the debt ceiling and pass another CR. This has become routine for last 8 years.

It’s about time for 3 things to happen.

1) No more baseline budgeting with automatic increases in spending every year, regardless of need or justification.

Every budgeted dollar must be justified. “Because we had that much last year” is not a justification for getting it again this year.

2) No more raising or exceeding the “ceiling.”

If you can’t fit in the room, chop your head off. Congress has raised the ceiling already, several times. Tell your representatives to work with it. Make the hard choices you were sent to Washington to make.

3) Put up a budget either piecemeal, or in its entirety.

Americans deserve the transparency they’ve been promised.

OK 4) When the Democrats squeal, which they will, make it known that they are the ones “shutting down” the government. (Which never really gets shut down. I wish.)

The only way to make America great again is to make the government fit within the Constitution, again.

McCain’s Last Hurrah?

In a last ditch effort to cap seven years of voters putting Republicans in the majority to get rid of government-run health insurance and government-run health care, and contrary to his earlier votes to repeal, and campaigning on repealing Obamacare, Sen. John McCain (RINO-AZ) cast the last NO vote to kill the repeal effort. In what may prove to be one of the most important votes he has cast in his 35 years in Congress, he chose to operate like the standard-issue politicians he likes to rail against.

He’s brave enough to show what a liar and fraud he is, for voting against the repeal of Obamacare when it was possible, with Trump in The White House, after voting for it, and campaigning on it, when he knew it wasn’t possible, with Obama in The White House.

Not only does Obamacare remain the law of the land, it also keeps the federal government sending a half billion of taxpayer dollars to Planned Parenthood.

Without a full repeal, and a reformed market-based health insurance industry, Obamacare will continue to do what it was designed to do. Destroy the private health insurance industry and leave people with no options but single-payer health care, socialized medicine.

Adding to the drama in Washington, the Fake News Washington Post says that VP Joe Biden petitioned McCain to vote NO hours before he voted. Noting that Biden’s son died from the same cancer as McCain’s.

According to a Senate Democrat, McCain heard from two longtime friends pleading with him to oppose McConnell: Joseph I. Lieberman and Joe Biden.

Ever the showboat, hours before the vote, McCain had this exchange with an unnamed reporter.

“Have you decided how you’ll vote?” they asked.

“Yes,” McCain replied.

“How?”

“Wait for the show,” he said.

But he wasn’t alone. He had the company of 5 other RINOs who voted for, and campaigned on repeal, when they knew President Obama wouldn’t sign it. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., Shelley Moore Capito, R-W.Va., Dean Heller, R-Nev., Lisa Murkowski R-Alaska, and Rob Portman, R-Ohio.

Lesson learned? The exit of George W. Bush from The White House was not the end of big-government Republicans. Along with the never-Trumpers,  the vote Friday morning revealed other swamp dwellers in the Party.
