Just Shut Up & Step Up


        Mazie Hirono is a U.S. senator from Hawaii.  She recently said that Democrats have trouble connecting because they are too smart.  They are too intellectual and fact based, and not emotional enough.  This statement is ridiculous. 
        This is the same woman that during the nomination hearings for Brett Kavanaugh for the Supreme Court said, that men should “just shut up and step up. Do the right thing.”
        She said, “Not only do woman like Dr. Ford, who bravely comes forward, need to be heard, but they need to be believed.  They need to be believed.”  This is in spite of zero evidence or witness corroboration of Dr. Ford’s allegations.
        Hirono apparently thinks all women should be believed without question.  And, the accused is not presumed innocent and is not entitled the due process guaranteed in the Constitution.
        This is from the same political party that has used emotional division politics of race and sex for years to win elections.  As soon as the facts don’t support their agenda, they call the opposition racist or sexist.  To say they are too intellectual and fact based is hilarious.
        With liberal Democrats electing people like Mazie Hirono, Maxine Waters, Frederica Wilson, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez it is impossible to call Democrats too intellectual.  This is like saying President Trump is too restrained, always diplomatic, and always politically correct.

Caravans


        I am in favor of legal immigration.  In Barron County, Wisconsin we are looking for workers.  Thanks to a booming economy and job market, we are courting workers from other states and counties.  We are thankful for eight years of Governor Walker and two years of President Trump for this delightful problem.
        We are bringing in workers from places like Puerto Rico, Philippines, and Belize to name a few.  We want legal immigrants who want to work, want to learn our langrage, want to assimilate into our society, are drug free, and observe our laws.  Is that asking too much?
        This country currently has an immigration problem on our southern border.  I recently heard a lame-stream political commentator saying President Trump should have foreseen this.  Trump did see it coming.  He is the first President in more than 45 years that has actually tried to enforce the immigration laws and deal with the problem. 
        Donald Trump made immigration a major issue in the Presidential debates.  He promised to build a wall.  He knew our immigration laws were a disaster, and he also knew comprehensive immigration reform was not possible until we secured our borders.
        The failure of Congress and past Presidents to deal with illegal immigration has brought this problem to a crisis.  Trump has been criticized for dividing families and using tear gas for control, but Obama also did both and was never criticized.  Why do illegal immigrants knowingly break the law and put their families in danger?
        The liberal media said the caravans were a long way off and never would be a threat.  The liberal left said it was a political stunt by conservatives for the election.  The caravans are here and they are very real. 
        Who organized these caravans?  They obviously are not spontaneous.  Who is paying for the trucks, busses, and trains that transport them?  The people promoting these caravans have a globalist agenda and want open boarders.  These poor immigrants are being used by unscrupulous, unethical, and immoral people who are promoting these caravans.  They are deceiving immigrants for their personal gain.  It should be a crime.
        Illegal immigrants are coached to say they want amnesty.  For amnesty their life must be in danger.   Wanting a better life is not grounds for amnesty.  People wanting amnesty must ask for it in the first country they enter, but they don’t ask for it in Mexico.  Very few will qualify for amnesty.  They have been lied to for political reasons.
        The large percentage of the caravans consists of young males.  Woman and children are used for show and as shields.  Criminals have been identified in the caravan.  Illegal immigrants are a major part of the drug and sex trafficking crime in this country.
        The crime rate of LEGAL immigrants is lower than the general population, but the crime rate of ILLEGAL immigrants is much higher than the general population.  Don’t let liberal open border advocates confuse the facts. 
        I have to mention race.  It is not a consideration.  Race is only brought up when the facts don’t support the liberal agenda.

Five Presidents


Our last five Presidents were:

  • Donald Trump (R) 2017
  • Barack Obama (D) 2009 - 2017
  • George W. Bush (R) 2001 - 2009
  • Bill Clinton (D)1993 - 2001
  • George H. W. Bush (R))1989 - 1993
       
        Two of these Presidents were Republicans and two were Democrats.  Donald Trump ran on the Republican ticket, but is more of a populist.  The Republican establishment fought Trump as hard as the Democrats, but Trump won against all odds. 
        Four of these Presidents were in favor of big government run by the establishment and moving toward globalism.  Trump puts the American working class first.  He is a nationalist and a patriot.
        I would like to talk about six political issues facing this country and how these five Presidents dealt with them.  The six issues are trade, taxes, race, immigration, foreign relations, and excessive government regulations. 
        Four of these Presidents ignored the trade imbalance, and refused to deal with the immigration problem.  They allowed taxes to force companies to move out of the country, and continued to regulate business until the economy and job growth were stifled.  They did not know how to deal with the race issues and the decline of our urban areas.  Obama did the most damage with his racist agenda. 
        You may not like President Trump personally.  He says what he thinks and does what he says.  He is often not politically correct.  He is, without question, the most transparent President of the five. 
        President Trump is putting America first.  He is not a globalist.  He is working for free and fair trade.  He recognizes that securing our southern border is essential before comprehensive immigration is possible.  He has reduced taxes and cut government regulations so the economy is booming.  Minorities are working and better off than in years, because Trump treats all Americans as equals.  With a strong economy and military, Trump can deal with world powers from a position of strength and respect.  We don’t have to buy their friendship as we have in the past. 
        President Trump has done more for this country on all six issues in less than two years than the previous four Presidents did in 14 years combined.  This Thanksgiving, I gave thanks for President Trump.

$5,000,000,000 Wasted


        We just had a mid-term election.  It cost five billion dollars.  What did we get for this money?  It was a waste.  The only positive thing was that it helped the bottom lines of some advertising industries.  
        How many homeless could be helped with $5 billion dollars?  How many veterans could be helped with $5 billion dollars?  How many lives could be helped or saved with &5 billion dollars?
        Both political parties felt they had to outspend the other side.  Most ads were a joke.  They bashed the opponent and seldom addressed any policy issues.  Most people don’t watch TV ads or read flyers anyway.  Informed voters do not make up their mind based on a TV ad or a mailer. 
        This lunacy of wasting money on political campaigns must stop.  Most elected politicians are more concerned about raising money for their next election than they are about representing the constituents who elected them.
        There was a movement called MOP or Money Out of Politics.  I was and am in favor of this, but the campaign was handled badly.  The movement attempted to get a referendum on ballots.  Unfortunately it was written with such offensive partisan language that our county board of supervisors refused to even bring it up for a vote.
        One thing that would help is repealing the 17th Amendment to the Constitution.  This amendment elects US Senators by popular vote.  Prior to this, the state legislators appointed the Senators to represent the state.  This helped to keep big money from outside the state from controlling the election.  Our founding fathers had it right.  We should change it back. 
        I like the idea of only allowing political donations from people or companies located within the district represented by the candidate.  Why should outsiders and special interests contribute and have control of a candidate.
        We must do something to reform campaign spending.  It has gotten totally out of control.

Purple Mist


        Democrats were predicting a blue wave this mid-term election.  History showed this should be the case.  It turned out to be more of a purple mist. 
        The final count is still unsure as some races are still to be decided.  Election fraud is again apparent.  Florida is a joke.  
        Democrats did take the House of Representatives, but Republicans lost less than half the number of seats President Obama and President Clinton did in their first mid-term election.  This was a win for the Democrats, but not a convincing win.
        The Republicans deserved to lose the House because they had not kept several of their primary campaign promises.  They did not repeal Obama Care, or build the wall in spite of President Trump’s best efforts.  The Republican House did not do their job. 
        Republicans did maintain control of the Senate.  They not only maintained control, they increased their majority.  This has only happened three times in the last one hundred years in a President’s first mid-term election.  This was clearly a win for the Republicans and President Trump. 
        The Democrats lost seats in the senate for two reasons.  Trump campaigned tirelessly for Republican senate candidates, and candidates that supported his agenda did well.    The second reason was the disgusting behavior of Democrats during the Kavanaugh hearings for the Supreme Court. 
        The majority in the Senate is important because of the Supreme Court.  This means we will have a Supreme Court that will support law and order and the Constitution for the next generation.
        Will the Democratic controlled House of Representatives work with President Trump in the best interests of the country?  Trump has expressed his willingness to work with the Democrats, and it might be easier than working with the current Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan.  Ryan is a disgrace. 
        I hope the Democratic Party responsibly represents the country in the House.  They need some new leadership.  People like Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Dianne Feinstein, Maxine Waters, and Adam Schiff are no longer good for the Democratic Party. 
        The Democratic Party must stop letting the radical left run the party.  Some Democrats try to sound like Republicans and distance themselves for Democratic party leaders in order to win.  Something is wrong when a Democratic candidate has to say, “I’m not one of those crazy Democrats.
        Hilary Clinton said Democrats could start being civil if they won the House.  That would be nice, but I wouldn’t hold my breath.  With the biased media and radical groups like ANTFA, I don’t expect much civility, cooperation, or working in the best interests of the country. 
        If Democrats continue with the anti-Trump agenda of obstruction, division, and talk of impeaching Kavanaugh and Trump, we will have two years of stalemate.  The good news for Republicans is that partisan conduct will guarantee the Republicans taking back the House and Trump’s reelection in 2020.

Vote Early - and Vote Often"


    
    This quote is probably from Chicago Mayor William Hale Thompson, but it was often used by Chicago Mayor Richard J. Daley and gangster Al Capone.  It is usually said as a joke, but unfortunately we do have way too much voter fraud. 
        Tomorrow is the election and I hope there is a minimal amount of voter fraud.  It is naive to think there is none.  Anyone committing voter fraud should be prosecuted.
      Requiring photo identification is a good step and should be required in every state.  The argument that it disenfranchises poorer voters is absolute BS.  Photo identification is required for many other things every day. 
       President Trump attempted to identify areas of the highest voter fraud, but many states would not cooperate.  I’m sure there is a high correlation between the states with the most voter fraud and the states that refuse to cooperate. 
        Absentee ballots and any voting by mail offer an opportunity for voter fraud.  The joke is:  “Grandfather always voted Republican until he died.  Now he votes Democrat.”
        Illegal aliens vote with fake identification or with legally issued driver’s licenses that are not carefully checked.  There was an illegal alien woman that was caught voting several times in 2016 with a driver’s license that clearly showed she was not a citizen. 
        It is easy for collage students to vote both where they go to school and at their parents home.  The chances of getting caught are minimal if different states are involved. 
        Please vote.  Your vote does count, and as the 2016 election showed, it does make a difference.  If every vote was not so important, people would not be committing the crime of voter fraud.

Vote for America


        The Election is in one week.  This is what I am going to vote for: 
·       Individual freedom and responsibility
·       Law and order
·       The Constitution
·       Equal justice for ALL Americans
·       A strong economy
·       Jobs
·       Equal opportunity for ALL Americans
·       Eliminating unfair and unneeded regulations
·       Reducing taxes
·       Reduce poverty and welfare
·       Strong border security including the wall
·       Immigration reform
·       Fair trade policies
·       Respect from foreign relations
·       Eliminate terrorists 
·       Eliminate nuclear threats
·       Stop supporting the world
·       A smaller federal government
·       Eliminate and prosecute partisan deep state crimes
·       Put America first

        Obviously, I am not a single issue voter, but I can vote for everything shown above.  It’s simple.  A Republican vote is a vote for Trump.  In the last two years we have made tremendous strides toward all of these objectives. 
        Two years ago, the American people showed the political elite, the deep state, the media, and big money that they could not control the election.  They are all still in shock and disbelief.  They are still trying to control the American people with fake news propaganda, division politics, and mobs.  Let’s show them that these tactics no longer work.

A Mob


        My Webster New World dictionary defines “mob” as: a disorderly and lawless crowd; rabble.  This certainly fits the radical left’s demonstrations that have been seen on TV. 
        The lame-stream media says we should not call these demonstrators a mob in spite of the fact that they fit the definition.  The media seems to think it is not politically correct to call them a mob because they are just passionate about their cause.
        I am fed up with this political correctness BS and I’m not alone.  I recently saw a survey that said over 80% of the people in this country agree with me. 
        I am amazed with the Antifa protests.  Antifa is short for anti-fascists, so they dress up in costumes, hide their faces, and act like fascists.  This is nuts, but the lame-stream media don’t want to call them a mob. 
        Politicians like Maxine encourage left-wing radicals to harass conservatives any time they are seen in public.  How do they think physically and verbally assaulting someone is going to change their mind?  Liberals say they want open discussions, yet they act like thugs.
        I about lost it when I heard a left-wing radical compare these mobs to the tea party gatherings.  Tea party rallies were calm and organized with all the proper permits.  The media called these rallies racist in spite of the fact the key-note speaker was black at two rallies where I spoke. 
        There was no damage to property or destructive behavior with the tea party.  Everyone cleaned up after themselves.  You could not even find a cigarette butt on the ground after a tea party rally. 
        Hilary Clinton recently said: 
“You can’t be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you are about.  That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again.”  Hillary sounds like a spoiled child that will throw a fit if she doesn’t get her way.  How does this change anyone position? 
        Democrats need to start promoting an agenda that is good for the country instead of taking offense at everything. Mob tactics and anti-Trump temper tantrums do nothing to further their cause.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

The Independent Voter


        On August 4, 2015 I wrote a bog titled The 6%.  I mentioned how Presidential candidate Mitt Romney made an off-the-record statement that 47% of the voters would never vote for him.  He got a lot of bad press when a live mike picked up this statement. 
        This was just a statement of fact.  In the past every Presidential candidate faced the reality that people loyal to the Republican Party or the Democratic Party will vote for their party’s candidate regardless of qualifications.     
        Some people even vote based on a candidate’s race, sex, or religion.  There are also people who vote because of the promise of free stuff or a government job. 
        Let’s be realistic for a moment.  President Obama would have lost both elections by a large margin if he had not carried over 90% of both the black and Muslim vote.  Race and religion were the determining factors in those two elections.  Identity politics worked. 
        Some people vote based on what their spouse, parents, educators, celebrities, movie stars, musicians, sports stars, or their peer group thinks.  They want to fit in with their peer group or associate with the people they admire.  
        Millions are spent on false advertising because many less-informed voters are susceptible to that type of propaganda which the lame-stream media also helps to spread.  The political elite will continue identity politics to court special interest voters as long as it works.  I hope that time is past.  
        The sad fact is that identity politics has nothing to do with the candidate’s qualifications, experience, agenda, ethics, or leadership.  Every candidate will promise they are for jobs, the economy, the working middle class, but this promise usually lasts only until they get to Washington.  Then it became big government as usual.
        For all these reasons, in August of 2015 I thought a Presidential candidate from either party would have 47% of the voters who would never vote for him or her regardless of how qualified he or she might be.  Combined, that meant 94% of the voters were committed, and only 6% of the voters determined our next President.  I was wrong. 
        The truly independent voter since the 2016 election accounts for much more than 6% of the voters.  The reason is that the country’s working class is fed up with the political elite, the Washington establishment, the deep state, the globalist agenda, and identity politics.  People wanted to make America great again.  People turned out to vote for Donald Trump who had not voted for decades. 
        Most of the polls were wrong, and most political commentators did not see it coming.  People are tired of dividing the country with race and gender.  It doesn’t work any more.  They want what is best for ALL Americans.  People are fed up.
        In less than a month we will have one of the most important mid-term elections in the history of our country.  The political commentators keep talking about the Democrats and Republicans energizing their base.  They are missing the big picture.  Independent voters are the key, and they amount to much more than 6%.
        The questions are simple.  Do we continue to make America great or do we go back to the deep state and Washington establishment with a globalist agenda?  Do we vote for results or resistance?

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

Emotion & Perception


         
        Marla often points out how naive I am because I draw conclusions and make decisions based on facts and logic.  She points out how many people do not let facts get in the way of their perception if the facts don't support their ideas.  She is right, but it still frustrates me. 
        Many people let their emotions and perception control their opinions in many ways.  These include career choices, personal decisions, life style, how they spend their money, and politics. 
        I am on our country economic development board.  The major problem in our area right now is finding and hiring employees at all levels.  People who have been born, raised and educated in western Wisconsin say they would love to return here to live, but there is no work for them.  That perception is not true.  The facts are, they could find a job, move back, have a lower cost of living, a higher quality of life with many recreational options, and most likely get an increase in pay.  How do we change their perception with the facts?
        I think most people will agree there is not a lot of logic in how we choose our life partners.  Love is emotion, but it does have a way of working out most of the time.
        As a coach/consultant for people looking for their own business I often see people make decisions based on emotion and perception.  This too often leads to failure.  That is the reason I wrote Business Fits: How to find the right business for you!
        In Business Fits, I have a chapter on price.  I discuss how quality and price are not directly related, but the consumer often perceives a product or service as one of higher quality because it is higher priced.  This is often not true. 
        In politics there is not enough common sense.  Too much is based on emotion and not on the facts.  Too much is a scramble for party power with zero consideration for the American people.  I am concerned every time I see a vote in the US House or Senate that is 100% along party lines.  These Representatives and Senators should be representing the people who elected them and not the Washington establishment.  Party loyalty should come after loyalty to the American people.
        The people of this country are fed up with party politics and the Washington elite.  That is why they elected President Trump.  He is following the people’s mandate, not the Party’s.  Look at what he has accomplished.  I am hopeful the Republican Party is getting the picture.  I am not so sure about the Democratic Party.  Their only agenda remains Never Trump. 

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

Sexual Assault


           I am glad I am not running for office (I don't think County Supervisor counts) or that I'm up for some political appointments.  There are some things in my past that could be a problem.
   When I was in kindergarten, Mary Anne Holt and I went missing.  The school even called out parents.  We were found asleep together under a table.  Did I assault her in some way?  Maybe I spiked her juice or milk.
       In junior high school I sat with Sally Dawson in one of the rear seats of the school bus on the way home from an evening event.  It was dark and there was some kissing, necking, and petting.  Did I take advantage of her?  I don’t think so, but would the Democrats agree?  I’m pretty sure she was more experienced and aggressive than me.  Enough of my sexual exploits. 
        I watched the entire day of Judge Kavanaugh’s and Dr. Ford’s testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Thursday.  It was the most disgusting display of unethical partisan politics I have ever seen. 
        I believe Dr. Ford did at some time experience a sexual assault like the one she described.  But the facts clearly prove that Judge Kavanaugh was not involved.  He has a diary/appointment book showing his activities that summer, and all three of the witnesses Dr. Ford said were present deny the event ever happened. 
        We need to look at some facts.  The Democrats have stated from before Judge Kavanaugh was nominated that they would do everything possible to block any nomination by President Trump.  They have had a policy of delay, disrupt, and destroy at every opportunity.  I expected that, but I did not realize how low they would go. 
        Dr. Ford is talking about an event that happened 36 years ago with no supporting evidence.  She cannot say when, where, how she got there, or how she got home.  She is a psychology professor at a liberal California university.  She is a Democrat and a Never Trumper.  She is a feminist and active in women’s movements including the Me Too movement. 
        One of the most stupid things I have heard is the statement that she must be telling the truth because why would she lie?  That is easy to answer.  Book deals, fame, and fortune might be part of it.  He GoFundMe account is now over $700.000.
        I do feel sorry for Dr. Ford because the Democrats have used her, manipulated her, and treated her badly.  They gave little or no considerations for her wishes.  Senator Feinstein recommended attorneys for Dr. Ford and those attorneys failed to tell her that the Senate committee was willing to come to California to talk to her.  That would have protected Dr. Ford, but would not have created a media circus for the Democrats.  Who are Dr. Ford’s attorneys really working for?    
        Senator Feinstein could have had Dr. Ford’s story vetted by the committee and kept Ford’s identity secret if she wanted, but instead Feinstein held the letter and then it was mysteriously leaked to the media.  Judge Kavanaugh’s ten year-old daughter said “We should pray for the lady,” referring to Dr. Ford.
        I have stated in several blogs that we should not be too critical of the Democratic Party because we need two political parties.  But the unethical, disgusting, and despicable behavior of the Senate minority leader and the Democrats on the Judicial Committee cannot be tolerated.
        This kind of con game tactics using unsubstantiated sexual or racial accusations hurts woman, all minorities, and the country.  It cannot be tolerated and must stop.  If Democrats continue with these kinds of unethical political tactics, the Democratic Party needs to go the way of the Whig Party and be replaced with a second political party that actually works in the best interests of the people. 

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.

      I had a list of about 4 dozen specific accomplishment, but that would take too much space.  Basically Trump keeps his campaign promises.  How unique.
        Isn’t it interesting how Obama blamed President Bush for all his problems, but now tries to take credit for all of President Trump’s successes?  Obama made history as the first black President, but history will show him as the worst President in history.  Trump may be the greatest in history for saving our republic and Constitution.

God bless President Trump and guide him to make America great again.
