No Voter Fraud Here!

170 registered voters in Ohio’s 12th Congressional District are listed as being “over 116 years old.” And 75 of them voted!

But there’s no voter fraud, Democrats say. (Russians excepted) They say that cleaning up your voting rolls of inactive participants is voter suppression. Give me a break. There’s always a provisional ballot for that 116 yr old Democrat who didn’t have a stamp and pen.

The Occupy Generation?

Some people call Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the “new face” of the Democratic Party. Of course, establishment Democrats will disagree. They love socialism but are afraid to come out and say it. Ocasio-Cortez is like them, only out of the closet, so to speak.

In an attempt to explain why unemployment levels have dropped to lows of 4% and below under the Trump administration, the Democratic congressional candidate, an economics and international relations major, explained, “Unemployment is low because everyone has two jobs.”

Oh my how they’ve grown. From Occupy Wall Street, to Occupy Pensacola, to what, Occupy Politics?

What’s new is there is no spooky mask. And now they have to speak in complete sentences. Revealing a lot more than just a pretty face.

Is she the new face of the Democrat Party? Or is she a trouble maker for Democrats, creating a divide in the Party? Sort of like the political version of Occupy Wall Street. Politically speaking, whichever it is, it will turn to the benefit of the Republican Party.

Viva la Resistance!

103 Days To Get A Valid ID

Speaking to the NAACP, look how much (or little) Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) thinks of her constituents. Turning voting integrity into racial bias. Less Blacks are buying that anymore. But, identity politics is all the Democrat establishment knows.

For whatever reason, and for however many people who care to vote but don’t have a valid picture ID, there are 103 days left to get one. Senator McCaskill doesn’t believe you can handle it. Witness the soft bigotry of low expectation. Democrats in Washington want you to believe that you are still a victim, and they are looking out for you.

Independent thinking anyone?

Dems Declare Open Borders

Here! Here! For President Trump for solving the faux controversy about separating illegal minor children from illegal (parent/coyote) adults .

“I’ll be doing something that’s somewhat preemptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation I’m sure,” Trump said.

Once ostensibly giving in to pressure for keeping families together, and the dramatic pictures prostituted by the media, signing this executive order has drawn out Democrats to fully admit the truth about their idea of immigration.

It is the goal of the Democrat(ic) Party to have open borders. People entering the country illegally should be a catch and release operation. In other words, keeping the family together in our country. No deportation, no turning them around. No holding for a judicial hearing. Translation, open border.

What a great platform for Democrats to run on. They can’t lie about their true motives any more. Thank You President Trump for drawing Democrats out before the mid-terms. Republican candidates will remember.

More Jobs Than People Looking

Since the Trump Administration began, 15 months ago, the economy is growing, companies are expanding, some moving back from abroad. On the labor side, unemployment has been dropping for the last fifteen  months. Now at 3.8 percent.  It’s all good. And, all the result of unleashing the economic engine that had been ignored for too long.

Remember what the unemployment rate was after Obama’s “stimulus” spending? There were two of them. It’s only relevant to mention Obama to understand the impact that government regulations, including taxes, have on the economy. Obama did it the classic, well post Kennedy, Democratic way of using the tax code and other regulations (including minimum wages) to “manage” the private sector. You lived the results.

Trump did it the free market capitalistic way. Minimizing taxes and regulations. And literally turning the economy loose.

What happened is that, as of the end of April, there are 6.7 million job openings according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And over the 12 months ending in April, hires totaled 66.1 million and
separations totaled 63.7 million, yielding a net employment gain of 2.4 million. And, as of April, the total workers looking and eligible for jobs fell to 6.35 million, a decrease from 6.58 million the previous month. There are 350,000 more jobs than people looking for them.

A free market economy is self-regulating when given the chance. And when given a chance, it will decide the right wage for a given job. Not the government.

With more jobs than people looking to fill them, you will see “Help Wanted” signs on store fronts. You’ll see “Now Hiring” on the back of tractor trailers on the Interstates. And you will also see employers competing for employees by paying higher wages. Economic supply and demand at work. Not a raving Marxist calling for a mandatory living wage.

EU Flirts With Suicide

Isn’t it obvious by now that the EU doesn’t really care about a nuclear Iran? Well, not more than they care about selling goods and services to Iran.

If they can’t survive economically without Iran, they’ve got a huge problem. There’s a world of customers out there, Iran doesn’t have to be one of them. And, funding a state sponsor of terror to the point that would enable Iran to lob a nuke their way makes sense to who?

Great Britain Lost Control

In the U.K., anybody who does not follow and subscribe to the orthodoxy of the left — including open-border immigration, permitting endless streams of militant Islamists into European countries, if you oppose that — you are being categorized as “far right” and can be arrested, according to Great Britain’s laws.

Tommy Robinson not only doesn’t approve of that, he reports on the effects of that, including the trial he was covering that was about sex rings run by these immigrants. 80% of whom are Islamists. And was arrested for it.

The judge put a gag order on Robinson’s arrest AND a gag order on the news media from covering the trials. Nothing like protecting the perps and arresting transparency.

Great Britain has no Constitution or guaranteed right of free speech. There’s a reason the Founding Fathers believed in that basic freedom, not derived from government, but from God.

But it gets worse for Tommy Robinson. Going to prison among the Muslim prisoners will most likely be a death sentence for him. Great Britain has lost control.

Smokable Medical Pot Prevails

Medical Marijuana was approved in Florida by an amendment to the State’s Constitution in 2016. The product can be consumed every way except by smoking the plant itself. That wasn’t the intent of the law, but this is how it has been interpreted, until today, when the law  was found to be unconstitutional.

Voters approved a constitutional amendment in 2016 allowing the use of medical marijuana. The only mention of smoking in the amendment’s language and in an intent document during the 2016 campaign was that the Legislature and local governments could restrict it in public places.

The next stop will be the state’s 1st District Court of Appeal in Tallahassee.

No reason it should not pass muster all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary. Gov. Scott should end his opposition to private use.

Two Justice Systems In One

Clapper admits to spying on Trump campaign. It was illegal spying on Americans for political purposes.

Know how you can tell? They didn’t similarly “protect” Hillary’s campaign. And more important, they didn’t warn the Trump campaign about what they were doing. If trying to get the Russians was their game.

The DNC computers were said to have been hacked by Russians. Or was that an inside job?  We’ll never know for sure because the FBI did not take the computers for forensic investigation. The FBI let the DNC, at the DNC’s request, have their computer checked by the tech company they have a relationship with. Isn’t that special?  Bottom line, the government never proved that the Russians hacked the DNC’s computers. Or that they were even hacked. Now there’s no evidence to look at any more.

What’s the difference here? Was the DNC “hack” done by good Russians and the excuse for spying on the Trump campaign, on into his presidency, was looking for bad Russians? Hell no. It’s about taking out Trump, like it has always been.

What’s the same here? We are supposed to take the word of the FBI/DOJ, with no evidence of either.

The Race Race

Remember when there was some hope that, if nothing else, the election of President Obama would at least put a ‘period’ on the ‘Americans are racist’ era? Americans elected the first Black president, with comparatively no experience, over who would have otherwise been the first Woman president, who is White and with a lot more experience.

So what’s this? Last year, Harvard hosted its first ever “black only” graduation ceremony. No word about a “white only” or some other ‘_____ only’ ceremony. It has become an annual event there, and at other colleges.

At the University of West Florida, there is a Black Employee Association. Odd, especially when this is on a state (public) campus, where there are not supposed to be organizations based on race.

Is this a longing for the old days, when there was segregation? Lord I hope not. Kanye West has a great take on it. Has to do with independent thinking.

All this coming from the University crowd, where inclusion was spearheaded and embraced with “Affirmative Action” programs from Washington. Aside from being hypocritical and probably illegal, they are setting “race relations” back 60 years. On purpose.

By 2018, the American people have long accepted integration. I suspect “race relations” are a lot better than the media would like us to believe.  God forbid we can live together without prejudice. That would put the Race Industry out of business, to the success of all those who can think for themselves.

Unfortunately, Civil Rights doesn’t mean what it used to mean. It has become an industry. The Jesse Sharptons in this country don’t have the end of racial discrimination as their goal. Instead, their goal is to keep racial tension going. Why?

Two reasons. The psychology of keeping minorities from leaving the Democrat Plantation by telling them they are victims of those evil racist Republicans. It’s called identity politics, coupled with the soft bigotry of low expectation. This event supplies the touchy-feely ‘pat on the back’ by the Massa.  Kanye, Trump and you know who the victims really are.

The second reason is in the bank. They make a nice one-percenter living on keeping Blacks unsettled. Sick.

No doubt in my mind that the same psychology is at work as in the “Middle East Peace Talks.” They (everyone by Israel) don’t want peace. They want the constant conflict and agitation that “talks” can supply. Which begs the question, how will we know when the Race race is won?

Pretty sure Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. would be disgusted with what they have done to the ‘civil rights’ he envisioned.
