Trump Wins Travel Ban Fight

Trump Wins Travel Ban Fight

America should rejoice!

The Trump Administration has won the fight to restrict travel to the U.S. from certain Islamic Terrorist infected countries.

It is the Constitutional right and duty of the our President to restrict the immigration of individuals that could be a danger to America.

The growing number of horrific Islamic terrorist attacks in Europe are what must be prevented from occurring to America.

The Supreme has appropriately upheld this Presidential power.

Reparations for American Slavery?

October 22, 2017

 Reparations for American Slavery?

A dear friend sent me the following article. It focuses upon the demand by some black citizens for reparations “due them” for America’s early history of slavery.

That is a preposterous demand in my view and the following will address this demand.

The Article is, entitled “Slavery Reparations”, and is written by Fred Reed.

I view this and many other demands from the radical left as scurrilous subterfuge . There is not an ounce of rationality in this demand. Therefore, it is most sensible to view this demand as one of many, in a class of demands, that is a continuing battle plan by the progressive/socialist/Marxist radical left. The ultimate of this cabal is social chaos and upheaval sufficient to spark an American transformation to thoroughgoing socialism.

The opposition to this often disguised movement is composed of true conservatives working against an increasingly entitlement-dependent voting population in order to return to the Constitutional governance and traditional values that made America great.

While I agree with the logical objections to leftist blacks, and others, demands for paid reparations for slavery, I do not like the tone (snotty and condescending as it is), of Fred Reed’s venomous diatribe.

Never-the-less, his main points are spot-on about the problem behaviors of many blacks (absolutely not all) who mindlessly play the race and victim “card” to gain political, material and economic advantages. They are not alone as leftist political forces in America are complicit.

It is well documented that following America’s Civil War and Reconstruction, many Black families were largely intact and slowly making headway in America. This was occurring in spite of a long history of the evil systemic and stultifying racism that persisted for many decades.

If you will please read Dinesh D’Souza’s new book, “The Big Lie” you will learn that this horrific brand of racism was perpetrated by left-wing democrats. While this assertion may its self sound like a big lie, as well as a false politically motivated conspiracy theory, the rational reader will be astonished at the level of scholarly documentation used to prove this stunning allegation.

In spite of the great gains that blacks in America have made, it would appear that far too many are trapped in festering expanses of ghetto quicksand. For these Americans the promise of advancement to prosperity has become the reality of regression.

This tragedy, along with many other indications of America’s great cultural decline, suggests a looming danger for every citizen.

Psychology’s premier law of behavior is the Law of Effect. This states that consequences control behavior and its power to shape and predict human behavior is as good as gold.

If America will only stop rewarding dependency among all races and redouble efforts to encourage and reward those who strive to break their history of poverty, under achievement and dependency, perhaps we can avert America’s looming cultural disaster.

Please read the following for its factual content and not its inflammatory style.

Rest assured that my next few blogs on this sad matter will bolster only the facts that follow. I will do so using a civil and respectful communication style.

Slavery Reparations  …………by Fred Reed!

On the Web I find that Henry Louis Gates Jr., the chairman of Afro-American Studies at Harvard, is demanding that whites pay reparations to blacks..  It’s because of slavery,see. He is joined in this endeavor by a gaggle of other professional blacks. I guess he’ll send me a bill, huh?

 I feel like saying, “Let me get this straight, Hank.  I’m slow.  Be patient.

You want free money because of slavery, right?  I don’t blame you..” I’d like free money too. Tell you what.  I believe in justice.  I’ll give you a million dollars for every slave I own, and another million for every year you were a slave.  Fair enough? 

But tell me, how many slaves do you suppose I have? In round numbers, I mean…say to the nearest dozen.  And how long were you a slave?

Oh. In other words, I owe you reparations for something that I didn’t do and didn’t happen to you. That makes sense.  Like lug nuts on a birthday cake..

Personally, I think you owe me reparations for things you didn’t do and never happened to me.  I’ve never been coated in Dutch chocolate and thrown from the Eiffel Tower.  I’ll bet you’ve never done it to anyone.  I want reparations.  Kind of silly, isn’t it?

But if we’re going to talk about reparations, that’s a street that runs in two directions.  You want money from me for what some other whites did to some other blacks in another century?

How about you guys paying whites reparations for current expenses caused by blacks?  

Not long ago blacks burned down half of Los Angeles, a city in my country.  Cities are expensive, Hank.  

Build one sometime and you’ll see what I mean.  Whites had to pay taxes to repair Los Angeles for you.  You can send me a check.

Now, yes, I know you burned LA because you didn’t like the verdict in the trial of those police officers.  Well, I didn’t like the verdict in the Simpson trial. But I didn’t burn my house and loot Korean grocers, or burn down a city.

Over the years blacks have burned a lot of American cities: Newark, Detroit, Watts, on and on.  Now add in the fantastic cost over the years of welfare in all its forms, the cost of all of those police calls people had to make, for cells and jails and security systems in department stores.

I can’t live in the capital city of my own country because of crime committed by blacks. 

Toss in the cultural cost of lowering standards in everything for the benefit of blacks.  

See what I mean?

Now, I’d view things differently if you said to me, “Fred, blacks can’t get anywhere in a modern country without education.  

We know that.  We need better schools, smarter teachers, harder courses, books with smaller pictures and bigger words.  Can you help us?”

I’d say, “Hallelujah! Hoo-ahh!  Not just yes, but hell yes.  Let’s sell an aircraft carrier and get these folks some real schools and get them into the economic main-stream.’ 

I’d say it is partly because it would be the right thing to do, and partly because I’d like to add you guys to the tax base.

The current custodial state is expensive.  I’d just love for blacks to study and learn to compete and stop burning places.  But is it going to happen?  

You may not believe it, but I, and most whites, don’t like seeing blacks as miserable and screwed up as they are..

I spend a fair amount of time in the projects. Those places are ugly.  It’s no fun watching perfectly good kids turn into semi-literate dope dealers who barely speak English.  It just plain ain’t right.  But, Hank, what am I supposed to do about it? 

I can’t do your children’s homework.  At some point, people have to do things for themselves, or they don’t get done..  Maybe it’s time.

I’ll tell you what I see out in the world, Hank…. I think blacks are too accustomed to getting anything they want by just demanding it.  True, it has worked for over half a century.  

Get a few hundred people in the street, implicitly threaten to loot and burn, holler about slavery, and sadly the Great White Cash Spigot turns on.

Thing is, whites don’t much buy it any longer.  Most recognize that what once was a civil-rights movement has become a shakedown game.  Few people still feel responsible for the failings and inadequacies of blacks.  Political correctness keeps the lid on — but everyone knows the score….  Which scares me, Hank.

On one hand, blacks hate whites and incline toward looting and burning.  (The whites you hate are the ones who marched in the civil-rights movement..  Ever think about that?)

On the other hand, whites quietly grow wearier and wearier of it.  Not good, Hank.

On the third hand (allow me three hands, for rhetorical convenience), blacks keep demanding things.  As I write, you demand reparations for slavery.  Blacks in Oklahoma (I think it was) want money for some ancient race riot).

Other blacks reject the Declaration of Independence.  Blacks in New York hint broadly at burning and looting over a trial, yet more demand the elimination of the Confederate flag, and the federal equal opportunity apparatus, which means blacks, want to sue Silicon Valley for not hiring nonexistent black engineers.  That’s a lot of demanding for one month, Hank.

What happens if whites ever say, “No”?

Now, how about you?  You’ve got a cushy job up there at Harvard, and you can hoot and holler about what swine and bandits whites are.  I guess it’s lots of fun, and you get a salary for it to boot.  But don’t you think you might do blacks more good if you told them to complain less and study more?

 For example, if you want blacks to work in Silicon Gulch, the best approach might be to find some really smart black guys, and get them to study digital design ~ not Black Studies (as  you teach).  That’s how everybody else does it.  It works.  Then blacks wouldn’t feel left out, and racial tensions would decline.  Sound like a plan?

Just out of curiosity, how many hours a week do professors of Afro-American Studies spend in the projects, encouraging poor black kids to study real-life sho-nuf subjects?

Women Need Guns

Women Need Guns

It is interesting that most out-spoken and politically militant feminists that I know do not support the Second Amendment. 

I know many less “stridently militant” feminists who courageously act upon their firm beliefs in equal opportunity and respect for all; and of course equal treatment under the law. I have watched them strive to be the best they can be in pursuit of all of their personal goals: As daughters, mothers, wives, and in their work-places, etc.  

As you likely know, America’s Second Amendment guarantees every law-abiding citizen’s the right to self-protection with a firearm, when it is absolutely necessary.

One area in which women really are inferior to men is in the biologically based differences in physical strength and the ability to inflict damage to someone with their bare hands.

Of course there are exceptions to this rule. But, unless you are one of those female exceptions, I must advise that you obtain professional training in the safe use, maintenance and storage of a firearm appropriate to your needs and skill level.

Finally, I challenge you to evaluate this short video and then present a persuasive argument supporting why women should not feel comfortable exercising their right to own a firearm.

laughing at Misguided Jocks!

It is a waste to use logic with those who lack the ability to be logical.

Therefore, the following is all of my the time and effort that this one issue deserves.

Sadly, we must face the fact that this pathetic issue is related to other absurd issues that form a much greater class of absurd issues.

Taken together, they present a most ominous reality: America is in a death spiral.

I am preparing to present much more on this matter to deepen your understanding of why America is disintegrating before our eyes.

To solve a complex problem, it is important to understand it!

Trump Can Be Uncouth: Good!

October 1, 2017

Trump Can Be Uncouth: Good!
 
Lee Hornack, a friend of mine received the following from a friend of his and forwarded this to me.
I fully endorse this message entitled: Trump’s lack of decorum, dignity, and statesmanship. I now present this message as quoted material with apologies for formatting problems encountered in cutting and pasting from an Email. This message is unique and important, no matter the format.
_____________________________________________
    My Leftist friends (as well as many ardent #NeverTrumpers) constantly ask me if I’m not bothered by Donald Trump’s lack of decorum. They ask if I don’t think his tweets are “beneath the dignity of the office.”
Here’s my answer:
    We Right-thinking people have tried dignity. There could not have been a man of more quiet dignity than George W. Bush as he suffered the outrageous lies and politically motivated hatreds that undermined his presidency.
    We tried statesmanship. Could there be another human being on this earth who so desperately prized “collegiality” as John McCain?
We tried propriety – has there been a nicer human being ever than Mitt Romney?
    And the results were always the same. This is because, while we were playing by the rules of dignity, collegiality and propriety, the Left has been, for the past 60 years, engaged in a knife fight where the only rules are those of Saul Alinsky and the Chicago mob.
    I don’t find anything “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper” about Barack Obama’s lying about what went down on the streets of Ferguson in order to ramp up racial hatreds because racial hatreds serve the Democratic Party. I don’t see anything “dignified” in lying about the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi and imprisoning an innocent filmmaker to cover your tracks. I don’t see anything “statesman-like” in weaponizing the IRS to be used to destroy your political opponents and any dissent. Yes, Obama was “articulate” and “polished” but in no way was he in the least bit “dignified,” “collegial” or “proper.”
    The Left has been engaged in a war against America since the rise of the Children of the ‘60s. To them, it has been an all-out war where nothing is held sacred and nothing is seen as beyond the pale. It has been a war they’ve fought with violence, the threat of violence, demagoguery and lies from day one – the violent take-over of the universities – till today. The problem is that, through these years, the Left has been the only side fighting this war. While the Left has been taking a knife to anyone who stands in their way, the Right has continued to act with dignity, collegiality and propriety. With Donald Trump, this all has come to an end. Donald Trump is America ’s first wartime president in the Culture War.
    During wartime, things like “dignity” and “collegiality” simply aren’t the most essential qualities one looks for in their warriors. Ulysses Grant was a drunk whose behavior in peacetime might well have seen him drummed out of the Army for conduct unbecoming. Had Abraham Lincoln applied the peacetime rules of propriety and booted Grant, the Democrats might well still be holding their slaves today. Lincoln rightly recognized that, “I cannot spare this man. He fights.”
    General George Patton was a vulgar-talking, son-of-a-bitch. In peacetime, this might have seen him stripped of rank. But, had Franklin Roosevelt applied the normal rules of decorum then, Hitler and the Socialists would barely be five decades into their thousand-year Reich.
    Trump is fighting. And what’s particularly delicious is that, like Patton standing over the battlefield as his tanks obliterated Rommel’s, he’s shouting, “You magnificent bastards, I read your book!”
    That is just the icing on the cake, but it’s wonderful to see that not only is Trump fighting, he’s defeating the Left using their own tactics. That book is Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals – a book so essential to the Liberals’ war against America that it is and was the playbook for the entire Obama administration and the subject of Hillary Clinton’s senior thesis. It is a book of such pure evil, that, just as the rest of us would dedicate our book to those we most love or those to whom we are most indebted, Alinsky dedicated his book to Lucifer.
    Trump’s tweets may seem rash and unconsidered but, in reality, he is doing exactly what Alinsky suggested his followers do. First, instead of going after “the fake media” — and they are so fake that they have literally gotten every single significant story of the past 60 years not just wrong, but diametrically opposed to the truth, from the Tet Offensive to Benghazi, to what really happened on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri — Trump isolated CNN. He made it personal.
    Then, just as Alinsky suggests, he employs ridicule which Alinsky described as “the most powerful weapon of all.” … Most importantly, Trump’s tweets have put CNN in an untenable and unwinnable position. … They need to respond. This leaves them with only two choices. They can either “go high” (as Hillary would disingenuously declare of herself and the fake news would disingenuously report as the truth) and begin to honestly and accurately report the news or they can double-down on their usual tactics and hope to defeat Trump with twice their usual hysteria and demagoguery. The problem for CNN (et al.) with the former is that, if they were to start honestly reporting the news, that would be the end of the Democratic Party they serve.
    It is nothing but the incessant use of fake news (read: propaganda) that keeps the Left alive. Imagine, for example, if CNN had honestly and accurately reported then-candidate Barack Obama’s close ties to foreign terrorists (Rashid Khalidi), domestic terrorists (William Ayers), the mafia (Tony Rezko) or the true evils of his spiritual mentor, Jeremiah Wright’s church. Imagine if they had honestly and accurately conveyed the evils of the Obama administration’s weaponizing of the IRS to be used against their political opponents or his running of guns to the Mexican cartels or the truth about the murder of Ambassador Christopher Stevens and the Obama administration’s cover-up.
    So, to my friends on the Left — and the #NeverTrumpers as well — do I wish we lived in a time when our president could be “collegial” and “dignified” and “proper”? Of course I do. These aren’t those times. This is war. And it’s a war that the Left has been fighting without opposition for the past 50 years. So, say anything you want about this president – I get it – he can be vulgar, he can be crude, he can be undignified at times. I don’t care. I can’t spare this man. He fights for America!
