The “Migrant Crisis” – A real analysis of the problem and solutions

Posted by Troy on 20th June 2018 in Current Events, Political

Trump signed an Executive Order stating that children will stay with their parent while they are being processed.  Of course, the Left has said that this isn’t good enough because we are incarcerating children.

I suppose we could separate the children and just turn them over to foster homes.  I am sure Hollywood liberals that have been howling will gladly take them in (NOT!).

Okay, so a 9th Circuit judge came up with a ruling that the government couldn’t hold minors for more than 20 days (mostly because of the subhuman conditions the Obama administration was keeping them in… but Obama = Jesus and Trump = Hitler no matter what the actual facts are).  In order for Trump’s EO to hold water, she has to revise her previous ruling to state that they can if they are held with their parents (or some such thing).  I am willing to put good money on the fact that the judge will never do this.  If it’s one thing a judge is not likely to do is to admit that they got a case wrong.  So here are the options for when the judge refuses to change the opinion:

1 – Trump can ignore the judge.  This will cause the Democrats to howl that he is keeping the children “IN JAIL!!!!!” (the horror).  Not a viable solution as it now puts Trump at odds with the law.  His administration is breaking the law, and this could lead to his impeachment or other problems.

2 – We can go back to the Obama solution of telling the illegals that they have to come back in 30 days for their trial.  They disappear into the countryside and are never heard from again.  Given the other Liberal stances of “we can’t break up families!”  “They are dreamers!”  and the fact that you can never be sure when someone came over here if they are willing to lie, then what you end up with is de facto open borders.  Throw in “path to citizenship” and we are ____ed as all these poor people from socialist leaning countries come here and end up getting citizenship and voting Democrat so that America turns into just another shithole like the rest of Central and South America (go cry me a river…when you talk about leaving America it is always for Australia or Canada or Switzerland or some other predominately white (you f___ing racist) country.  I never hear anyone saying “Yeah, I’m totally going to leave this racist country and move to Cuba or Ecuador.”  Not to mention the fact that all ya’ll are assuming that these adults actually are the children’s parents and aren’t selling them as sex slaves or had kidnapped the kids or something else.  Amazing how you want to think that illegals are all pure as the driven snow and that your fellow countrymen are actually Nazis… but you know… whatever.

3 – We go back to what Trump was just doing and separating families until they are processed and releasing or deporting them as a family, which is in full accordance with the law.  If we do that, we get to listen to 50% of America being called Nazis.  You know how to tell that we are not Nazis?  The children (and their parents) are still alive.  That is kinda something that wouldn’t happen in Nazi Germany…just saying.  Added advantage of this is that we remove the incentive to use children as cover to get into the country illegally.

4 – The Cruz bill which actually solves all the problems.  The cases would get turned around in 72 hours.  This would stop the children from being separated from their parents and the cases would get processed.  The own downside is that we are taking legal resources from trying American cases or processing legal immigrants paperwork.  However, the Left will never go for this.  The only solution that the Left will accept is open borders.  They are not interested in actually solving the problem.  They are interested in using it as a political weapon and/or replacing natural born Americans will illegal immigrants as their new base.

I hope that this clarifies things.

Long Live the Constitution!

Migrant Internment Camps – Further Proof the Left Loves a Dictator

Posted by Troy on 19th June 2018 in Current Events, Political

Rational thought.  It’s a pretty cool thing…

Let’s start at the beginning: anyone comparing this to Nazi Germany or the Japanese internment camps of the 1940s is a demagogue.  Let me work this out for them.  The Germans EXTERMINATED men, women, and children (mostly Jews, but others too).  Americans of Japanese descent had their Constitutional rights as CITIZENS revoked.  For all those who love to say the Supreme Court has the final determination on all things, it’s important to remember they upheld those internment camps.  What is happening at our border?  People are crossing the border illegally.  If they have children with them, they are separated until their case is resolved, and then they are reunited.

Wow.  That’s all?  Okay, well, if you don’t like it, stay in your own country or go to the designated points of access, and none of this will be a problem.

You know why this is a problem?  This is a problem because other administrations failed to enforce the law.  It is plain and simple.  People found out that they could come to the border with children, claim asylum, and they will be released into America with the expectation to show up to court in 30 days (which never happens).  Did you know the Mexican government actually printed brochures teaching people how to cross and what to say to accomplish this?  Think about it.  Those countries get rid of their unemployable labor and get repatriated money from them later.  Why would they want to stop it?  The current system encourages sex trafficking as well.  There are so many problems with the current system.

There is currently no situation in Central to South America that qualifies for asylum.  Crime and poverty do not qualify.  If you want to let that qualify, there’s a few billion people that would like to come here.  If 200 million people showed up on the border tomorrow, what would you do?  Even if there was a qualifying situation, there is only one country that could ask for asylum in America: Mexico.  The international law states that a refugee crosses the nearest border to seek asylum.  They are not allowed to pick their country.  They don’t get their country of choice.  They get to escape the murderous regime, and that’s the extent of it.

Right now, 20 service members a day are killing themselves.  Our VA is failing them… but yeah, let’s go ahead and spend time and money on illegal immigrants.  Our schools could use funding, but sure, the illegal population should take precedence over that.  I wonder if I got a DUI if they would let me go the way the let illegal immigrants go because they don’t want to separate families?  Or would they probably not give a crap about my family and throw me in jail?  Probably the second one.

But the Left loves a dictator.  They loved it when Obama picked the laws to enforce or not enforce.  They wail about how Trump is acting like a fascist dictator… by following the Constitution!  So, Trump remarks: “This is the law, and I am enforcing it.  If you don’t like it, change the law.”  Their take?  “JUST DON’T ENFORCE THE LAWS!”

Ya know what?  Fine.  Also, Mr. Trump, don’t enforce the income tax laws.  And don’t enforce guns laws.  Don’t enforce insider trading.  Whatever you want to enforce or not enforce, that’s your call, apparently.

Actually, non-enforcement is a tool that the Executive Branch can use as a counter to oppressive laws passed.  I cannot fault the demand…except for it coming from LEGISLATORS!  This is one branch demanding to be countered by another branch.  This is absolutely asinine.

President Trump is completely right to enforce the law on the books as he sees fit.  If Congress doesn’t like it, maybe they should get off their ass and pass a law that they prefer over the current one and see if the President will sign it into law.

The Democrats are holding up a bill that would fix the immediate problem (the allocation of funds for more judges to get the processing time down to 14 days so the children will not have to be separated in accordance to the 20 day law).  Why?  Because they like it as a campaign issue.  Videos of suffering kids play so well!  Also, they like the Feinstein bill, which says that Border Patrol isn’t allowed to detain anyone caught within 100 miles of the Southern Border (which totally qualifies as WTF?!!!!).

I have a simpler solution.  Don’t separate them.  Deport them as a family and we are done.  Also, cut off all foreign aid to any country that these supposed “refugees” are from.

Long Live the Constitution!

Roseanne Barr Will Not Get the Opportunity to Apologize

Posted by Troy on 31st May 2018 in Current Events, Entertainment

Samantha Bee calls Ivanka a “cunt.”  No one really cares.  Sammy comes out and says “Sooooo sorry…” which she is not, and all is forgiven.

Roseanne will not be given the same courtesy.  She has been labeled a racist.  That’s the end of it.  Bill Clinton says of Obama “A few years ago, this guy would have been getting us our coffee.”  No problem there.  Biden says he is a light skinned, well-spoken negro…no problem there  (okay, I threw in the negro word, but seriously…).

Frankly, I don’t think Roseanne mean anything racial  by the comment.  I looked at picture of Valerie Jarrett and Dr. Zira, and I gotta say…separated from birth, yo.

Here’s my thing.  Roseanne is a living, breathing human being, as are all her co-stars.    We have deprived them all of their livelihood…over a tweet.  I’m sorry.  I didn’t even want to crack down on Michael Vick over the dog fighting.  Humans win.  Sorry, but that’s the truth.  I don’t want to destroy anyone’s life because I truly believe that we all need and deserve a chance for redemption.  They could have demanded that Roseanne make a donation to the NAACP or done community service in the intercity, or pretty much anything, and that would have have been a more desirable outcome.

I believe both people have said something deplorable.  However, one gets to say “Dude, like… I’m like…totally sorry and junk…” and all is forgiven.  The other is DESTROYED.  Roseanne will probably never get serious work again.  Why?  Because of a tweet.

A review: Solo: A Star Wars Movie

Posted by Troy on 28th May 2018 in Current Events, Entertainment, Political

It wasn’t as terrible as people would have you believe.  If you take out the robot liberation philosophy, it’s actually a pretty good movie.

The Cannes Film Festival gave poor reviews of this movie.  I think that you must bear in mind that these are the same people who gave a standing ovation for The House that Jack Built – a serial killer movie that depicted the slaughter and dismemberment of women and children.  Frankly, their opinions mean JACK to me.

But you couple this with people in the movie talking about how Lando Calrissian is a pansexual on top of the general girl-power feel of the Last Jedi and Force Awakens, and you put a damper on things.

Everyone says “Well, there is Star Wars fatigue.”   This is absolutely not the case.  If anything, there should be super-hero movie fatigue.  And yet, there is not.  In fact, we can see that Marvel movies do fantastic and DC movies tend to fail.  Why is this?

It is because Marvel delivers what fans want.  True, Black Panther did have some black power/black liberation philosophy in it, but that was a running theme of the Black Panther comics.  It is true to the source (and very tastefully done).  In the case of Star Wars, they are using this franchise to promote liberal causes.  The net effect of this is that those who love liberal causes will probably love the movie.  Those who do not share this worldview will not particularly care for it.

The strangest thing was the promotion of Lando being a pansexual which actually had NOTHING to do with what was going on in the movie.  Such talk made those who roll their eyes at the concept of pansexuality to roll their eyes at the movie.  If they were a parent, they were even less likely to want to go to this movie with their child.  In Social Justice Warrior recap, here is what you should know: the girl in the movie is probably the biggest badass of the movie, there is a robot that runs around talking about droid liberation theology with the same annoying manner as a college sophomore, and Lando comes off at being too attached to his droid (but I can’t say that he really has a sexual attraction to said droid…and in the world where sex dolls are selling like hotcakes, I’m not entirely sure how taboo this is…).

People are whining about how Alden Ehrenreich is no Harrison Ford.  No.  He is not.  However, the Han Solo that Harrison played was 35 (or at least, that’s how old Harrison was).  The time isn’t very clear.  We do know that Darth Maul was alive.  Which means that Darth Vader is about 6 at the most.  Vader dies when he’s about 40ish.  So Alden is probably playing a teenaged Han.  As such, he wouldn’t have that cynical, hard shell that Harrison had.

It was an enjoyable movie outside of that stupid droid that is at the bottom of the list of favorite droids.  The droid liberation preaching was out of place and was not funny.  I think it was meant to be funny, but the writers failed.

Let’s remove the droid out of the equation.  What you have is a pretty decent movie with a solid plot, pretty good acting, and good special effects.

What does that tell you?

KNOCK IT OFF.  Seriously.  People do not go to Star Wars movies for left-leaning preaching.  They go there either for light saber battles or for classic, romantic storytelling.  We want to hear about balance and good vs evil.  We want courage.  We want friendship.  We want stories of hope and fighting against impossible odds.  That is what people go to Star Wars movies for.

I hope Disney learns their lessons.  Give the fans what they want, and they will reward you.  Try to shove preaching down their throat, and they will abandon you.  They still have time to save this franchise, but if they don’t learn this lesson quickly, they are going to run the franchise in the ground.  I do recommend seeing this movie if you are a Star Wars fan.  The annoying droid is a minor part of the movie, and I don’t particularly wish to see the franchise die.  Outside of the droid, it’s a pretty good movie.

Marvel is doing well because Marvel Studios is overseeing the project.  These are people who understand the characters and fans.  Star Wars is not being handled the same way.  You want to save the franchise?  Go pick up the Star Wars novels and just start making movies based on these instead of having others develop the stories.  This will work.

Santa Fe Shooting: How To Stop School Shootings

Posted by Troy on 20th May 2018 in Current Events, Human Nature

As I said about Parkland…what if a kid comes in with a shotgun and a pistol?  Which is what happened this go around.   So let’s stop talking about the AR-15s.  The type of weapon is not the issue.

There are two main camps.

One group believes guns are the issue.  These people want a total gun ban.  They know they will not get this, and instead want to chip away at private gun ownership until they achieve this goal.

The other group realizes that incremental steps will do nothing to stop these types of attacks and realize that the end goal of the first group must, indeed, be a total gun ban.

The two groups will bicker back and forth.  The first group will accuse the second group of not caring if children die.  The second group will accuse the first group of using dead kids to advance their agenda of disarmament.

I could give a long defense of the Second Amendment, but I am going to bypass all of this nonsense and actually deal with the real issue on people’s minds:

How do we stop having dead kids?

1 – Regardless of what Hollywood and others in the entertainment industry (yes, including video games) want you to believe, the glorification of violence in modern day media, particularly the elevation of murderous criminals in such entertainment, makes hearts jaded.

2 – Facebook and other social media has shoved a false importance on fame.  Having your name plastered all over social media and the news is appealing to these killers, even if they know that it will be posthumously.

3 – All of these killers were picked on and ostracized.  Alone and depressed and angry, they pick up a gun and get their revenge (again, glorified in media) and get their fame (again, pushed by social media).

If you want to stop these incidents:

1 – Portray violence as it is: dirty and shameful and beneath human dignity–that which should only be undertaken as a last resort.

2 – Media should do a total blackout of these killers’ names.  Now, that’s almost impossible in this day and age.  Some 3rd tier news organization will cover the killer with the name, but all reputable  news organizations should agree to a total blackout of the names, removing the fame component of this.

3 – Parents need to teach their kids to treat others kindly at all times.  This goes for the killers and the other kids as well.  We don’t want to talk about it because it’s tantamount to blaming the victims, but there you go.  But prior to these attacks, those kids (the killers) were victims of harsh words, derision, and possibly even physical bullying.

Remember, these guns were around beforehand, and we did not have all these shootings.  It’s not the guns.  It’s the hearts.  Remember, the Founding Fathers said that only a moral people could be free, could govern themselves.  The answer is not to turn this country into a police state.  The answer is not to remove freedoms.  The answer is to return to morality.

Long Live the Constitution!

Proof that the Left Loves Dictators

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2018 in Current Events, Political

Trump overturned the Iran Deal, and the Left loses their minds.  So lets review some stuff that the Left has lost their minds about:

1 – DACA

2 – The Paris Accord

3 – Iran Deal

What do all of these have in common?  They are all thoroughly unconstitutional.  The President cannot give a swathing amnesty or grant citizenship to people.  It’s not his jurisdiction.  Congress gets to set the rules for citizenship.  The President may really really really want to do something.  He may think it’s suuuuuuper important, but that doesn’t matter.  He does not have the power to act on his own.  We are governed by three, co-equal branches of government with separation of powers for a reason.

The same holds true with the Paris Accord and the Iran Deal.  These were agreements between those other countries and the Obama Administration, NOT America.  They were not treaties.  They were not ratified in the Senate.  Tell me, how would it be any different than if Trump made an agreement with Russia that they could occupy Hawaii and we would pay them $10 billion dollars a year?  Would you guys all say, “Oh, well, I mean… we have an agreement…”  Hell no!  You are only upset about this because you happen to like Obama.  I don’t even think that you know enough about these deals where you can actively say that you liked the deals.  They came from Obama, so they must be good.  Likewise, any idea that comes from Trump must be bad, if he started making unilateral deals like Obama did, you’d be howling about how he was acting like a dictator.

This proves what I have always said about the Left.  They love dictators.  They just want one they agree with.  They want nothing to stand in the way of the agenda of a leader they adore.  In fact, when parliamentary procedures or even an actual election defeats these ends, they have a royal hissy fit.

It is good and right that all three of these things END.  They were the acts of a dictator.  You call Trump a Fascist, but Obama was the Fascist.  All those things that you are truly upset about regarding Trump is that he actually returned matters to the constitutional base.

Long Live the Constitution!

In Defense of Kanye

Posted by Troy on 30th April 2018 in Current Events, Entertainment, Human Nature, Political

What, precisely did Kanye say?

“I like the way she thinks.”  That’s all.  A conservative, black woman expressed herself, and so the machine had to TEAR HER DOWN, and Kanye came to her tepid defense.  Kanye later doubled down on it, and he is right about one thing.  We make prisons for ourselves.  This was  a theme of my first novel, War Journal.  We say, “Oh, I can’t be a rapper because I’m white.”  Or maybe, “I can’t be a soldier because I’m a woman.”  “I can’t quit the job I hate because I have to pay my mortgage.”  Kanye’s point is that you can’t let people (yourself included) build these mental prisons for you.

Of course, conservative pundits say the obvious: “He’s black and said he liked Trump, so the Left will destroy him.  You are not allowed to question their worldview.”  This is close, but it is not the real answer.  They would tear apart anyone they thought was on their side that came out and said, “I like Trump.”  Not only that, but if you reject any ASPECT of the Left’s agenda, they will make an example of you.  You will support nationalized healthcare, welfare, open borders (by whatever name), abortion, gun control, and all the rest, or you will be destroyed and mocked.

I don’t mind if someone has thought about their position and have decided to be a socialist or whatever.  However, most people take their beliefs as they are handed to them.  They never question it.  Kanye’s message was this: “Be a free thinker.”  If anyone wants to deride that message, then I have serious reservations regarding their intentions.  He didn’t say, “Be a free thinker and become a Republican.”   I wonder if he had told Evangelical Christians “Be a free thinker” if the Left would have ripped him a new one like they did telling Blacks to be free thinkers.  Gee… I wonder why.

We should all be free thinkers.

The Trump Investigation vs the Clinton Investigation

Posted by Troy on 10th April 2018 in Current Events, Political

The Hillary Investigation:

1 – Hillary Sets up a server.

2 – Possible motive?  Possibly to engage in pay for play without being caught.  At best, so that what she does and says won’t be in the public record.

3 – Possible negative outcome?  Bribery or injuring national security.

4 – FBI politely asks Hillary for documents.

5 – She turns over the documents and deletes all those other documents she deems as not relevant.  She then wipes the server and smashes all her devices with hammers ensuring that no one will ever see those documents she deleted.

6 – Her exoneration letter is written before she is even interviewed.

7 – Her highest level associates are granted attorney-client privilege (really crazy since they were not lawyers and were totally unqualified to act as attorneys…) and interviewed at the same time.  Which is kinda a “no-no” since you wanna interview people separately to see if their stories match up…generally speaking.

8 – Hillary herself is interviewed.  She is NOT put under oath.  She is NOT put on the record.  The interview is not record.  No notes are taken.

9 – The FBI holds a press conference basically saying that she is guilty of lying and gross negligence…but she didn’t intend to break the law and well…the lies are kinda unimportant and stuff… so she’s not going to be charged.  It probably has NOTHING to do with Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton meeting on the tarmac for half an hour…but hey, weird shit happens, right?

The Trump Investigation:

First of all, it starts off with Russian Collusion and then goes into Obstruction of Justice for… for… um… for obstructing an investigation into a collusion that didn’t happen?  But um, okay, so yeah, okay, so we just keep going… to STORMY DANIELS!  Yes, an alleged, consensual affair from 12 years ago from a KNOWN philanderer.

Okay… possible crime?  Maybe campaign finance issues… which would be more on the lawyer than on Trump… but okay…

Possible motivation?  To avoid embarrassment?

Possible negative outcome?  … … … Trump won the election?…?

Doors are being busted in left and right.

Millions of documents are turned over.

People are dragged in and put under oath.

Any faulty recollection, any variance, anything at all is being called lying to the FBI and people are being charged.

People’s families are being threatened with destruction, lives are being destroyed.  Doors are being kicked in.  Attorney-client privileged is being ignored.

And you want to know why we don’t believe the FBI?  You want to know why we doubt their objectivity?  Why we use terms like “The Deep State?”  This is what the FBI was under Hubert Hoover… and if this is how they are going to operate, THEY NEED TO BE DISSOLVED AND REPLACED.  These are SS tactics.  Ask yourself, with the NSA watching all your communications and the FBI  busting in the doors to the friggin’ President… what chance do YOU have!

The New Gestapo

Posted by Troy on 10th April 2018 in Current Events, Political

Hmmmm, isn’t it interesting how the very people who were calling Trump Hitler are the ones cheering the police busting into a lawyer’s office and taking papers?  This is some serious SS shit.  We are in a police state.  Think of an America where a judge will issue a warrant to go in and seize your lawyer’s notes?!  Holy shit!  Now, you can say, “But they can’t use them against you.”  Oh yah, sure.  I’m sure that they will get a disinterested third party to read through them all, sort through, and completely forget all that he read and not let people who what he read.  I’m sure that the knowledge gleaned from those notes won’t be used to hunt for additional crimes and misdemeanors.  Wink wink, nod nod, say no more.  No reason to be alarmed now.

Why I Find David Hogg Pathetic

Posted by Troy on 29th March 2018 in Current Events, Political

We raise our fist in the air in celebration of violence!

People are “upset” that people are eluding to that he is Hitler.  They say “Look, Hitler’s hand is flat.  David clearly has his hand in the raised fist, the symbol of rebellion.  How dare you?”

I dare because the raise fist is saying, “Accept my worldview, or this fist is going to be in your face.”  It is the clear comment that there will be no persuasion.   The only discussion there will be is them telling you their view.  If you don’t see the wisdom of their words, there will be violence.  Such is the way of fascists.

Take the recent events.

The boy was complaining that he was changing the world and couldn’t get into his school of choice.  Laura Ingram commented that he didn’t have the scholastic aptitude to get into that particular school.  So what did he do?  Did he fight his own battle and engage her?  Nope!  He called upon the mindless mob.  “Boycott her sponsors!”

Look, kid…the sting of the rebuke is in its truth.  I wouldn’t have apologized to you.  She shouldn’t have apologized to you.  You have been a disrespectful brat.  Hell, if I acted that way when I was his age, my dad would have done the single worst thing I could imagine… He would have looked at me and said, “I am disappointed in you.”  You are a foul-mouth, ill-mannered brat.  That is the truth.  You were poorly raised.  Instead of standing up like a man, you summoned others to fight for you.

I will go one step further than Laura.  I don’t believe he is the least bit upset by the death of his classmates.  I don’t pick up anything that reads of sincere anguish in his mannerisms or his voice.  I only pick up a self-assured entitlement.  I firmly believe that he saw the events as his chance to launch himself into fame, get into his choice school, and eventually become a pundit or anchor.  I have no proof, but that’s how I read this kid.

You can say, “‘Awww, but he’s just a kid!  You can’t talk that way about him after what he went through!”

Well, which is it?  Is he a traumatized kid that doesn’t have wisdom or maturity?  Or is he some wise shaman, showing us the error of our ways?  You can’t have it both ways.  Either he’s a stupid kid, and you are using him to press your agenda, or he’s a man of wisdom.  He can’t be a man of wisdom when he’s telling us to abandon a Constitutional right and a traumatized child when we respond to his attacks on our freedom.

Now, why I think he’s pathetic.  I was bullied when I was young.  But I fought back with my wits and with my fist (when the bullying was of a physical nature).  I had a teacher growing up.  When the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor.  He lied about his age and fought at Iwo Jima when he was sixteen.  What does this kid do?  He insults.  He condescends.  He speaks in show-trials with a packed audience and friendly press.  He never puts himself on dangerous ground.  Whenever someone offers him the least bit of of a challenge, he calls upon others to fight his fights, to destroy them.  That is why he is pathetic, just like all fascists.

Long Live the Constitution!
