Donald Trump Jr’s Collusion

Posted by Troy on 12th July 2017 in Current Events, Political

Let’s dissect what happened:

Last June (before the entire Russian explosion thing), an acquaintance contacts Donald Jr and tells him that he has a contact with information from the Kremlin which will incriminate Hillary Clinton.  Donald Jr. meets with her, attempting to get this information.

I wonder… If Hillary could have gotten pictures of Trump having sex with children from Putin, would she?  You bet she would.  Oh, she might give some “I hated getting the information this way… but I had to do it… I had to protect my country from this monster.”  And you can bet the media and the rest would have herald her for her courage.

These are the same people who praise Snowden for turning over intelligence to the community at large.  This is the same party that pardoned Manning for at best espionage, at worst treason.  Speaking of, what is treason?  Giving comfort and aid to our enemies.  What could that mean?  Could it mean doing an apology tour?  Obama.  Could it be giving Russia access to 25% of North America’s uranium after getting $500,000 from Russian entities from a speech and getting millions of donations  afterwards to their private foundation? Clinton.  How about structuring a nuclear arms deal that lets Russia expand their arsenal while we have to shrink ours?  Obama/Clinton.  What about paying a ransom and lifting sanctions to Iran when we know that they will use the money to fund terrorism and attack our interest?  Obama.  What about giving arms to known terrorists so that they can fight other people in the region?  Obama.  What about going to Cuba and legitimatizing a tyrannical government?  Obama.  What about releasing terrorist after terrorist from Gitmo?  Obama.  What about setting up an arms running deal to incriminate our own people so that you can push an anti-gun agenda on the premise that we are supplying arms that are killing Mexicans?  Obama.  What about demanding pro-Western rulers step down to be replaced by anti-American extremists?  Obama.  What about going to the Ukraine and using the Ukrainian government to do opposition research on Trump?  Clinton.  We could go on an on about this.

My point is this: either apply the standards uniformly, or not at all.

Specifically, until such time that it is show that there is a quid pro quo, I am most unconcerned.  I think the Left’s argument goes something like this: If Russia prefers that candidate, that candidate should step down–which is bizarre.  Frankly, I do not see that Russia truly preferred Trump.  If anything, I think Trump has been way stronger against Russia than Obama was in the last 8 years.  Have we forgotten that Obama gave Russia everything they wanted with the START treaty?  Did we forget that Russia took the Crimea under Obama?  That they did that laughable reset?  Do you remember when Obama drew a red line and then broke out in a cold sweat when Assad used chemical weapons anyway?  How Obama praised Russia and Russia’s fine work in promoting peace by brokering a solution to the chemical weapons…which rather conveniently let Obama backtrack on this red line that he had no intent in enforcing.

Don’t make me laugh.

If Hillary would have won, she would would stocked the Supreme Court with a 5-4 Liberal bias.  The Second Amendment would have died.  There is no limit to the evil that would have been plagued upon us.  You are going to be hard pressed to show me any amount of evil that Trump may do that will match this.

Long Live the Constitution.

The Lie of Gun Violence

Posted by Troy on 14th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

There are about 33,169 gun deaths a year.

Of this, 21,175 are suicides  63.8%.  You could say “Oh…but we need to protect people from killing themselves.”  This is odd given the same people that argue this are for medical assisted suicide, particularly in the terminally ill or elderly.  I guess they have no problem with you killing yourself, but they don’t want you to do it cheaply on your own terms.  In fact, Japan has one of the highest suicide rates and virtually no guns.  Method of suicide can be found.  It’s just in the United States, guns are readily available, reliable, and painless if done correctly.  Availability of guns will most likely have little effect on the number of suicides.

786 (2.3%) deaths are accidents or intention unknown.

That leaves 11,208 homicides.  Of these  80% are gang related.  Many of these deaths are gang on gang deaths as they wage war over turf and drug territory (which could lead to either a discussion of decriminalization or really cracking down on casual drug sales, I generally prefer the former than the latter).  But bear in mind…what is the term “Homicide?”  Well, it is when a human kills another human.  This is why suicides are lumped in with homicides.

MS-13 has proven that you don’t need guns to kill people.  You just jump out of your car with machetes and hack up 16 year old girls.  Or you can do like the Boston bomber and make a bomb out of fireworks and a pressure cooker.  Or you can do like the Nice terrorist and just turn your car off the road and mow people down.

None of these statistics show how many crimes are prevented by the idea that the potential may be armed or may have a shotgun by their bed.  None of these statistics show the number of times a gun being pulled is enough to cause someone to run away from a potential crime.

Finally, the Second Amendment is not about crime or self-defense.  It is about defending your country from a government run amok.

Long Live the Constitution!

As Predicted – Political Violence

Posted by Troy on 14th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

I have been warning this for a while.  Politicians and celebrities have been pushing the narrative that Trump is… well… let’s see if I can list everything:

1 – Is stealing everyone’s healthcare

2 – Is a dictator

3 – Is a racist

4 – Is a sexist

5 – Is a Nazi (Nationalist) WHILE AT THE SAME TIME

6 – Is colluding with the Russians to destroy America

7 – Is a white supremacist

8 – Is destroying the planet

9 – Is obstructing justice to secure all the above

10 – Is stealing from the poor to make his cronies rich

I’m sure there are other things, but 10 is good enough.  So you have all of these things being hammered over and over and over again.  You have entertainers SUGGESTING violence or showing violence (even if not real via Kathy Griffin’s decapitation or the Julius Caesar play).  You have liberal mayors and governors looking the other way when antifa protesters riot.  In all of this, how long would it take for someone to snap and turn to violence?  Apparently less than five months.

Chill out.  We put up with eight years of Obama without trying to kill people, you should do the same.  Right now, what you are showing is that you are only for democracy when things go your way.  In other words, you are a fascist who enjoys the illusion that you are some sort of enlightened believer of democracy.  If you are only for democracy when things go your way, I invite you to read A Clockwork Orange and wonder what it has to say about yourself.

Long Live the Constitution!

Kathy Griffin, Trump as Caesar, and Other Idiocies

Posted by Troy on 12th June 2017 in Political

First of all: I am a proponent of free speech.  Let’s get that out of the way.  Now, on to the meat of my argument.  No doubt, you read the first sentence and assumed that I am about to rail against Kathy Griffin’s decapitation photo.  You may think that I am going to say “Could you imagine a play being put on where Obama was stabbed to death?”  Well, I’m not.  When Obama was president, people lynched him in effigy.  They burned him in effigy.  This kind of thing is traditional free speech.  Kathy Griffin’s decapitation is no different.  Trump as Caesar is also fair play.  I will say that I question the judgement of people doing such things in the public forum.  The only difference is the level of fame.  A bloke in Boston burns Obama in effigy, who cares?  Famous people, however, do hold sway over larger numbers of people.  Given the current environment, I question the wisdom of such displays as they may increase the likelihood of actual violence.  That being said, if you are dumb enough to cross lines, you must deal with the consequences of your actions.  When the Dixie Chicks trashed Bush, they blew up their career.  The same thing happened to Kathy Griffin.

That being said, I feel sorry for Kathy Griffin.  She looked over and saw all the cool kids… Madonna talking about blowing up the White House.  Bill Maher talking about Ivanka doing sexual acts on her father.  Colbert spewing profanities.  Hollywood and Media spewing Hitler, Nazi, Racist, Bigot, and on and on and on.  So what does she do?  She does a political statement thinking that she can be like the cool kids, but she’s not a cool kid.  She’s that wannabe on the fringe of the clique.  She’s not cool.  She’s not important enough to overlook, to protect.  No…in fact, she is EXPENDABLE.  She can be nailed to the cross so that the Left can say, “See!  We are upholding civility!” while at every turn they demonize the current President and anyone who dare supports him.

If anyone that has an open mind reads this, I will make a challenge to you.  Go and buy an Obama/Biden t-shirt and walk around town for an entire day.  Document the number of times people give you grief or make you feel unsafe.  Now do the same thing with a Trump/Pence shirt.  You won’t do this.  You know how you will be treated in both instances.  The sad thing is this: you know what will happen when you wear a Trump shirt, and you will excuse it.  You have effectively made a thought crime.  You are going to have to come to terms with this.  You are excusing people punishing people for having thoughts and beliefs that you disagree with.

Long Live the Constitution!

James Comey is a Teenaged Girl

Posted by Troy on 8th June 2017 in Current Events, Political

What came out in the Comey’s hearing is that he is a teenaged girl.  I could see a teenaged girl after a break up saying “He broke up with me because he wanted to date Jessica!  I don’t have any proof, but I know that he was having sex with her!  Oh…and he lies…like…all the time.”

So let’s review:

Loretta Lynch tells Comey to call his investigation of Hillary’s server a “matter” not an investigation.  Which oddly synced up to how the Clinton campaign labeled things.  Comey was confused and concerned, but did it anyway.  At the end of the day, he knew deep down in her heart of hearts, that the Saintly Hillary did not INTEND to do anything illegal, and he let’s it go.

Meanwhile, Trump says he hopes that Comey can let it go, and he knew that Trump intended this to be an order.  He was shocked!  He was confused and concerned.

God…this man gets confused and concerned a lot!  He also contradicts himself a lot.

“I took it to be an order…but I didn’t think it was obstruction…and I didn’t think that it should be told to anyone higher up…but now it’s reallllly significant!”

So he wants to eat his cake and eat it too.

Everyone thinks that Trump is a moron, but somehow he’s genius enough to word things perfectly in dealing with Comey when he failed to word ANYTHING perfectly for the entire tenure of his campaign.

So, to re-iterate: James Comey confirmed that he told Trump he is not under investigation.  He confirmed that there is no evidence of any collusion with Russia.  His only point is that Trump used the term “I hope.”  To which, Trump can say that he was just saying “I hope,” and Comey is just a paranoid political hack.  Given the amazing turnabout between intent regarding Hillary’s server use and a one time use of phrase by Trump, I believe that he is a political hack.  There have been many accounts before and after Trump took office that Comey hates Trump.

In regards to people who are upset because an FBI director called Trump a liar (ie, “It’s a shame we have a President that event he FBI director calls a liar!”), member of Congress called Obama a liar during the State of the Union.  Hell, it’s know and documented that President Obama and Hillary Clinton lied over and over and over and over and over again.

In a court of law, the case gets thrown out.  But let’s be realistic.  Impeachments are matters of political force.  The Republicans control the House.  Unless it comes out that Trump has made some sort of pact with the Russians that harms America, he will never be impeached.  At least not in the next two years.  If he is impeached under Republican control, the Republicans should just call it a day and close up shop.  They will never be a viable party ever again.

Long Live the Constitution!

We’re out of the Paris Accord!

Posted by Troy on 1st June 2017 in Current Events, Political

Thank God.  So, let’s recap for all those out there losin’ their friggin’ minds:

1 – This had nothing to do with decreasing carbon emissions and everything to do with global wealth redistribution.

2 – The dirtiest polluters were allowed to go on polluting.  For example: India would not be required to reduce (or even hold steady their pollution levels) until such time that they received $3 TRILLION in aid.

3 – The United States was going to be the one that bore the bulk of the costs of this program (hence why all other countries wanted us in on it).

4 – It would costs trillions of dollars to decrease the rate of temperature growth by half a degree over 100 years.  Assuming that the models are accurate, which they have not been to date.

5 – It was a non-binding agreement anyway.  As such, it was more a symbolic gesture than anything.  Somehow, all of these elites don’t care enough about the planet to downsize their own house, cars, private jets, or other such luxuries.  So they either know they are full of crap, or they think that they are special and should have more than the massive.  Some animals are more equal than others, as it were.

6 – You can tell that they are full of crap by the simple equation.  They believe that the world is LITERALLY going to end if the Paris accord falls through, right?  So why won’t they renegotiate with Trump?  What, they are going to be petulant with the fate of the world at stake?  I’m sorry.  That just doesn’t add up.  You believe THE WORLD IS GOING TO END.  Why wouldn’t you try to stem that if possible?

I am not a climate denier.  If anything, they are.  They seem to think that climate is going to be stagnant.  It is not.  It will constantly be changing.  What I question is the degree of of man’s impact on the climate.  Did you know all planets in our solar system are experiencing global warming?  Only one of them has humans on it.  You know what they all have in common?  The sun.  You know what climate change scientists FORBID to be discussed?  The sun.

I think that we should be good stewards of the Earth, but what I absolutely refuse to do is enter into a globalist wealth redistribution scheme.

Long Live the Constitution!

Angela Merkel’s Hissy Fit

Posted by Troy on 28th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

Trump goes over to Europe and says that they need to spend what is required by the NATO Treaty (2%) for defense.  We spend 3.5%.  Germany (the largest economy over there) pays 1.2%.  By saying this and by backing out of the Paris Accord on Climate Change, Angela threw a hissy fit and said that Europe has to go it’s own way and that we are unreliable allies.

This is false.  If Russia attacked Europe, we’d be over there kicking Putin’s butt the next day.  This is mean girl’s shit.  This is “if you don’t smoke this cigarette, you’re not really our friend!”  So let’s get this straight: do not hold us to our agreements, do exactly as we say (even if it hurts yourself),  and pay our way, or we are not going to be friends!  How is this any different than someone making you take them out to a vegan restaurant when you want to go to a steak house, and then demand you pay?  And if you don’t do all of this,  you’re the bad friend.  You know what that is in real life?  That’s an abusive relationship.  That’s being used.  To hell with that.  We are your ally, Germany, not your puppet.

My take is this: Germany wanted to take over Europe and failed twice.  They are now the main force in the EU, so really, they run the EU.  Now countries are realizing that the EU sucks and forces them to do stuff they don’t want to do.  Resisting the commandments of the EU is taking away Germany’s control over Europe, and Angela has got to nip that in the bud!

How does she keep winning elections over there?!!!!

Long Live the Constitution!

Good Luck to Ya, Democrats

Posted by Troy on 17th May 2017 in Political

You have scant evidence for obstruction, but you are determined to continue with your impeachment hearing.  Here are the things I learned.  Know how everyone complains that Washington is corrupt and never changes?  That’s true.  That there really is only one party as the Left and the Right are in cahoots?  That’s true.  That the media is little more than Leftist propaganda and should be ignored?  That’s true.  Obama used the IRS as a weapon, interfered with American elections, and killed Americans without a trial.  No one said anything.  Trump utters, “I hope you can just let this go,” and everyone loses their minds.

Win, lose, or draw… If Trump is impeached and leaves office:  You get Pence.  You also get most of the country flat ignoring the media.  You will probably have Trump start his own media outlet which will make Fox News look tame.  Meanwhile, you will completely energize Trump supporters for 2018 and 2020 by showing how little you care for the results of elections while de-incentivizing your own side.  Finally… you will get Pence.  Stable, liable Pence.

Good Luck to Ya!

Long Live the Constitution!

Left Derangement and Impeachment Impossibilities

Posted by Troy on 16th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

The Left has come completely unhinged.

First, let’s talk about Trump “leaking classified information to the Russian Ambassador.”  This is actually impossible.  The President can declassify anything at any time.  He just CAN.  There’s nothing that can be done with it.  If he leaked the nuclear codes, I’m upset.  So what did he leak?  He leaked the city that the information was cleaned where ISIS is located.  The vast majority of Americans say “Meh.”  In fact, this seems reasonable.  He is trying to get Russia to aid in the fight against ISIS.  Doesn’t it seem reasonable that he might share such information as LOCATION with the forces he is trying to solicit aid from?  I just don’t see how this is a big deal.

Second, let’s talk about Comey saying that Trump tried to shut down the case against Flynn.  What did Trump say?  ”I hope you can let this go.  He’s a good man, and I hope you can let this go.”  That’s pretty innocuous.  Close doesn’t count here.  There was no veiled threat.  It would be different if Trump had said, “I hope you can let this go…it would be a shame if you lost your job because of it.”  Okay, well, that’s a threat.  The other is conveyance of your desires.  There was no promise of reward or punishment.  Once more…there are only two options: either Comey didn’t think it was obstruction at the time (in which case, he is being a petulant child throwing a temper tantrum because he was fired) or he held this back to blackmail the President.  In either case, he tarnishes his character and his testimony.  As such, the only conclusion that I can reach is that Trump was merely conveying a hope and his support to his friend and supporter.  Again…the vast majority of Americans would say  ”Meh.”

So let’s finally talk about impeachment impossibilities.  Dude…have ya read the Constitution?  The House of Representatives has to vote for impeachment.  Very unlikely given the fact that the Republicans are in a majority.  It would then go to the Senate for trial, which would be unlikely as the Republicans are in power there.

This obsession is going to backfire.  Democrats are appearing to be foaming at the mouth.  If every day the Democrats scream the sky is falling, it won’t take long before people stop listening.  Why?  Because the sky hasn’t fallen.

Here is the truth.  If the economy is going gangbusters in 3 years, Trump will win.  If the economy crashes or remains stagnant, he will lose.  If anything, the Democrats should want Trump to stay as President.  If he is impeached, Pence takes over.  Trump is better for ratings.  He is better for fund-raising.  He is also willing to negotiate.  Pence would eat them alive.

Long Live the Constitution!

The Difference – Trump and Clinton on Comey

Posted by Troy on 11th May 2017 in Political

Everyone is “upset” now because Trump asked Comey if he was under investigation.  They point to the hypocrisy of conservatives because “This is what you got upset over when Bill met with Loretta Lynch.”

No…

“Hey, am I under investigation?”  Is a fairly innocuous question, if that is all he asked.  It may be a breach of etiquette or unseemly, but it’s not a crime.

Bill’s 45 minute, private conversation is a different matter.  We are not worried or upset because Bill asked if Hillary was being investigate or inquiring about the investigation.  We believe that what he really was doing was saying “What do we have to offer you in order for this to just go away?”  This is how the Clintons have operated their entire lives.

Under the statute, she was guilty.  Dead to rights.  She did not get prosecuted.

That’s what we are upset about.  When dealing with national security information, gross negligence is a CRIME.  Comey said, “She was exceedingly careless,” (or something to that effect).  That is the VERY definition of gross negligence.

Long Live the Constitution!
