What We Learned in the New Benghazi Report

Posted by Troy on 29th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

Per the media:  “Nothing new to see here,” or “No bombshell regarding Clinton.”

Here’s what we already knew:

She (either personally or those under her) did not give them the extra security they requested, even when every other country was pulling people out.

She knew it was a terrorist attack and continued to lie to us and to the families of those who died, claiming it was about a video.

What does this mean?  Well, it means that she has poor judgement and administrative skills.  It also means that she put her prestige over the safety of Americans.  It also means that she was more concerned about the presidential campaigns of 2012 and 2016 than telling us the truth.  It also means she thought she was smarter/slicker than Americans and would get away with it.  It also means that she believes the press has her back.  And they do, so yeah, I can see that.

Here’s the new things we learned:

The Secretary of Defense ordered the military to help.  And someone reversed that order.

The troops were ready to go, but the higher-ups were more concerned about how the troops would appear and had them change in and out of uniform 3 times as they were concerned that it would look too much like an invasion.

While our people were fighting for our lives, they were already looking to spin the attack and blame the video.

What does this mean?  Dear God, what does this mean?  That they are out of touch?  That they are cold and calculating?  No.  Originally, I thought that the reason they didn’t try to rescue them was because they were afraid of making the death toll higher.  Or that they might ruin our reputation in that part of the world.  But it’s worse than even that!  What it means is that they didn’t engage because they were too busy spinning it.  The story was more important than the reality.  They are more concerned about their personal reputation than American lives.

What don’t we know?

Who reversed the order to help?  They refuse to answer that question, and that is the most important question of all.

Of course, it had to be Obama.  Maybe, possibly, Clinton might have bullied her way, but Obama is my bet.

God help us if she’s elected…

Long Live the Constitution

Brexit!

Posted by Troy on 24th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

I would like to congratulate our British friends for standing up to the propaganda and fear mongering and taking their country back.  I would like to point out that Obama’s speech to them in April warmed them that globalization hurts at first.  They are admitting what they are doing!

1 – We are different cultures and nations.  I want Brits to be Brits, Germans to be Germans, and Americans to be Americans.  I want our cultures to be what they are.  I don’t want them to disappear.  I like national identity.  Deep down, we all do.  If you’re in the south, you would hate for a bunch of Yankees to move into your neighborhood and start changing stuff up and vice versa.

2 – This will not affect the ability to defend against terrorism.  It might make BRITAIN more secure since they don’t have free-roaming immigrants and enforced refugees (etc) now.  If the EU is REALLY worried that Britain won’t have access to their security database…then give them access.  You can charge them a fee, make a treaty, whatever.

3 – The economic realities facing Britain are the same.  They have the same workforce, resources, supplies, and demands.  All this gloom and doom was meant to scare them back into line.  In a few weeks, things will return to pretty much the same as normal.  Britain is a good market, countries are going to want to trade with them.

4 – The EU was not a military compact.  That’s NATO, and that stays in place, and all parties have an interest in keeping it in place.  Also, the real reason we haven’t been seeing wars isn’t the EU.  It is because war has become too expensive among advanced societies.

I am very proud of Britain and it gives me hope that maybe we can turn back the tide of globalization.

Long Live the Constitution!

Congress of Children

Posted by Troy on 23rd June 2016 in Current Events, Political

I see adults, sitting around cross-legged, and I have to ask…is anyone else reminded of children?  Have some dignity, for crying out loud.  You are statesmen.  Get up and argue your case, calmly and rationally.  It was all political theater, of course.  I liked one Democrat that said, “We have to put it simply so that Americans can understand,” and I felt like it summed up how the politicians view us.  They view us as idiots that can’t take care of ourselves.  Or like Charlie Rangel that said that his voters didn’t need the Second Amendment to protect themselves…but of course Congress needs armed guards to protect them.  The reason is… you’re unimportant.  Why would you need to protect yourself?  But politicans…they’re important!  Of course they need to be protected.

It’s a lie, of course.  The politicians are completely unimportant.  It’s easy to replace them with people just as inept and just as corrupt.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Using Grieving Families as Props

Posted by Troy on 16th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

This is a disgusting habit he has.  Someone dies.  He shows up, pretends that he cares, and uses the family’s pain to push his agenda.  I’m gonna be frank: I totally hate this guy.  Totally do.  I’m not sure if I’ve ever hated anyone in my life, but I totally hate this guy.  I don’t care if it was a politician I like.  I wouldn’t cry and say “Please…please do something to stop the gun violence,” which is what he is claiming.  No.   I’d tell him to **** off.  And the reason I would do so would be because I know that he DOESN’T CARE ONE BIT about my loved one and is USING their death.  It would PISS ME OFF.  Even if I LIKED the guy.  Even if I AGREED with them on the issue.  I would honest to God tell him to **** off.

Just a profanity laced rant tonight, gang.  Seriously, I find this crap offensive.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Using Human Tragedy to Push Gun Control… AGAIN

Posted by Troy on 15th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

Never let a crisis go to waste, right?  With every mass shooting, they make a new push for gun control.  Here are the facts:

An assault weapon is an effective weapon, but other weapons are available that would have had similar results (such as a sawed off 12-gauge).  If they can’t get an assault weapon, they will buy other weapons or make a bomb or poison gas, etc.  As such, an assault weapons ban will not work.  That’s not even assuming that they won’t go to the black market and get one anyway.  If you can buy crack, what makes you think you can’t buy an AR-15 after they are made illegal?

The Terrorist/No-Fly list.  The issue with this is that you get on this list by them just putting you on there.  You have no right to see the “evidence” facing you.  It makes getting off the list impossible.  What’s to prevent them from saying that right-wing bloggers, tea partiers, etc, are all terrorists.  Boom.  You’re done.  The NRA has said they support this assuming that the FBI investigates you and settles the case.  So I will go one further.  If you are put on a no-fly/terrorist list, they have to take you to court and they have to settle the case one way or the other after showing you the evidence they have against you.  They have 30 days in order to do this.  After this, they pay you a $75,000 a day penalty like the EPA charged a Wyoming man that dug a home-made pond on his land.

I remind you, the Orlando terrorist bought his guns legally.  The San Bernardino terrorists had a friend buy theirs.  This is why gun laws are going to be largely ineffective.

I refuse to give up my rights.  Doing so will not make us any safer.  Let them live without armed protection for a while and see how they like it.

Long Live the Constitution!

Orlando Shooting Used to Push Gun Control

Posted by Troy on 12th June 2016 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

I got to wake up to the news that 20 people were killed last night at a night club.  That turned into 50 killed and 53 wounded.  And of course, I instantly thought “Obviously a Southern white male demanding adherence to the Constitution,” much like any sane person would.  But it actually turned out to be a Muslim terrorist.  Ya know…starting to get annoyed by the word “extremist.”  Just throwing that out there.  Just smacks of PC-ness that is unwarranted at this point in the game.  And, of course, I made a prediction that Obama’s response would be “We have to get rid of guns, people.”  And that’s pretty much what he did.

So, of course, we have to put up with them importing more Muslims into our country (seriously look up the immigration rates since 9/11…illogically, we’ve increased the visas to these countries).  So after these shootings, instead of examining how we look at mosques that we know are espousing extreme view points, we are talking about banning guns.  Shall we forget that the mosques raided after the Paris attacks had a stash of AK-47s and ammo?  Or, as I like to say… “Guns should be illegal so criminals can’t get them…just like drugs.”  You don’t think these animals wouldn’t get guns or explosives or poisons or whatever they want to use to kill us?

Obama asks if we want to be this type of country.  So, that led me to ask…what would it take before I decided that I would be willing to give up my right to keep and bear arms?  I guess the first thing I would have to see is that all of our government officials and buildings give up their own guns and armed security guards and fancy alarm systems and live like the average American.  If they feel safe enough to live like that for ten years…we can talk, but really I wouldn’t go for it even then.

The right to keep and bear arms is the Second Amendment for a reason.  They said “Shall not be infringed” for a reason.  I’m not willing to give up my Constitutional rights just because of these terrorists.

Long Live the Constitution!

Huffington Post Advocates Violence

Posted by Troy on 9th June 2016 in Current Events

Well, they go out of their way to come up short, but they basically say that violence at Trump rallies is understandable.  I wonder if they will have the same reaction when someone who is surrounded by 5 guys pulls a concealed gun and kills one of the “protestors.”  I bet they will sing a different tune then.  I predicted early on that one day someone’s going to get hurt, and Trump will be blamed.  One of these “protestors” will kill someone one day.  And instead of blame the murderer for killing someone exercising their right to attend a political rally, they will say something like “This is what happens when you start spewing the divisive politics like Trump does.”

If you want to talk divisive politics, let’s talk about Democrats which have divided us by race, sex, sexual preference, education, geographic location, nationality, and class.

Violence is never acceptable.  These “protestors” should be arrested and thrown in jail and prosecuted like any other vandal or violent criminal.  If Trump supporters were doing this at Hillary rallies, you can be sure that would be the reaction.

Long Live the Constitution!

Bernie’s Plan

Posted by Troy on 8th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

I think I know what his plan is.  I think he wants to go to the convention and give the speech right before Hillary’s…and announce he is launching an independent bid.  It’s genius!  Here’s the thing.  Democrats keep calling for him to concede and give up and start helping Hillary win…but here’s the thing…He’s NOT a Democrat.  He is a Democratic Socialist/Independent.  He doesn’t care if he ticks off the Democratic party because his success (either past or future) is not dependent on the party.  Also, he’s in his 70′s, and this is his last hooray.  Also…I think that he hates Hillary.  To Bernie, Hillary is no better than Trump.  Both are about profit.  Both are (in his mind) beholden to big business.  I don’t think he is going to help her at all.  I actually like Bernie.  He keeps fighting.  Deep down, Americans love someone that doesn’t give up.  I’m putting my bet on an independent run.

Long Live the Constitution!

In Defense of Trump’s Judge Comments

Posted by Troy on 7th June 2016 in Current Events, Political

Everyone’s on Trump’s case regarding stating that the judge in his Trump University case is bias because he’s Mexican.

If you say, “He was born in Indiana,” I really don’t care.  I know plenty of Americans that friggin’ hate America and are prouder of their “heritage” than they are of America.  That’s one thing I love the about the South.  We’re not Irish or Italian or anything else.  We’re Southern or American.  Period.  Is it possible that this judge is more proud of his Mexican heritage?  Is it possible that he sympathizes with illegal aliens and harbors a dislike for Trump?  He is a member of La Raza after all.  Totally possible.  If Trump feels that the judge is not presiding over the case impartially, does he not have the right to say so?

Let’s play another game.  What about when blacks complained that white judges in the Jim Crow South did not treat them fairly?  They were criticizing a judge!  They were saying that race prevented them from being impartial.  “Oh…well…that’s different!!!!”  Yeah yeah…

What about all these Black Lives Matter people that claim that white cops do not enforce the law impartially?  “Oh…well…that’s different!!!!!”  Yeah yeah…

If Trump truly believes that he’s not getting a fair shake from this judge, he has every right to levy such a charge.  It isn’t racist to wonder if someone’s background is preventing them from hearing a case fairly.  If a black man can voice such a thing about white cops or white judges, then Trump is free to do so regarding a Mexican judge.  Period.

Long Live the Constitution!
