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!

Comey Fired

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2017 in Current Events, Political

So, the Left’s argument is this:

1 – Comey has poor judgement.  Interjecting himself into the election gave the election to Trump.

2 – Trump firing Comey is proof positive that Trump colluded with the Russians and is worse than Hitler.

I think you protest too much.  Is Comey competent or not?  Did he help Trump or not?  The argument, on its face, is laughable and shows just how partisan the whole thing is.  If Comey’s judgement is that bad, he should be fired.  Honestly, Comey should have gone a long time ago.  The reason he is still there (as far as I can see) is that Trump didn’t want to look like he was firing people over the investigation in order to protect himself.  Trump may not be able to escape those implications, unfortunately, as we all know how the media is going to portray this.

The big winner tonight is Comey.  He gets to sleep in tomorrow and put this nightmare of a job behind him.

Long Live the Constitution!

Hillary Blames Everyone Else

Posted by Troy on 3rd May 2017 in Political

Hillary wants to blame Comey and the Russians for her loss.  Just like her leaked emails, all this does is reaffirm that which everyone suspected.  She blames everyone else.  It’s never her fault.  I hate to break it to her, the Access Hollywood video had WAY more effect on the election than Comey and the Russians.  If it had not been for that video, maybe she would have lost a couple of extra states.  She is an unlikable human.  Her stances are out of step with the vast swath of America.  She is a known liar of the highest order.  She is dishonest as they come.  She lost her chance to be President when she lost the primary to Obama in 2008.

Deal with it.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama Wiretapped Trump

Posted by Troy on 20th March 2017 in Current Events, Political

They continue to hammer Trump over his claim that Obama wiretapped him.

First, I believe Trump really does believe Obama wiretapped him.  I am guessing that he is basing this on all the leaks (etc).  The FBI and others have come out and said that there is no proof of this.

However, there are other options.

1 – Obama and his ilk could have gone outside of all government agencies.  Do you really think that the CIA (etc) are the only ones capable of hacking and stuff?  Just ask Hillary and the DNC!  Anyone can do it!  Yes, there are mercenaries that you can hire.  Private eyes, etc.  This is possible.

2 – Does one really think official orders need to be given to make things happen?  Could it be that Obama just said, “Wow…I really think someone should really look into Trump…” within earshot of certain people?  Like you haven’t done similar?

3 – Do you really trust the CIA not to defend itself?  Could it be that they do not like Trump’s positions?  Could it be that they are protecting themselves by sabotaging Trump?  When the CIA said “Yes…we can listen to you through your smart-TV…but we would never do it to American citizens!” did you think “Yeah, right…”?  If so… why do you have much trust in them at all as an organization?

Honestly…none of this really matters.  What matters is the economy.  If in four years we have 5% growth, Trump will be re-elected, and it wouldn’t matter if you caught him on camera with a transexual Russian hooker.  If the economy roars under Trump, he wins.  If it fizzles, he’s probably gone.  All this other stuff is irrelevant.

Long Live the Constitution!

Thank You, Putin

Posted by Troy on 3rd March 2017 in Current Events, Political

Before I begin, the idea that Trump is a pawn of Putin is ludicrous, and I will explain this below.  However, first let me mock you.

If Putin caused Hillary to lose, I want to thank Vladimir.  Thank you, Vlad, for saving our country.  Thank you.

Seriously.  I believe Hillary would have destroyed this country.  She would have sold us out to the globalists and taken our guns away.  Here’s the sad fact, Hillary supporters.  Even if you could prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that Putin wanted Trump to be elected–even if you proved that he “handed the election to Trump,” I would still rather Trump had won.

Now, I will explain why it is ludicrous that Trump is some sort of Russian pawn:

1 – If Trump was in league with Russia, do you think he would have cracked jokes about Russia hacking and releasing Hillary’s e-mails?  Of course not.  In fact, he probably would have played up being anti-Russia.  It would have played well with the Conservative base, and there would be little danger involved because Russia was in on it.

2 – I know for a fact that there is nothing going on (at least to the greatest extent of anyone’s knowledge).  You know how I know?  Because it’s not plastered all over the front page.  You think that these leakers would say “Well, we have the thing that will sink Trump for sure… but let’s just leak that Flynn discussed sanctions on this phone call that we were tapping.”

3 – If Obama had any true concern that a Presidential candidate was being put forth by Russia, he would have had an obligation to bring that forward.  He didn’t.   If you believe that he was a good American President, he had to do this.  I don’t buy his, “I knew that Putin was trying to deliver the election to Trump, but I didn’t want to seem partisan.”  That is like saying, “I saw a black guy about to rape a woman, and I didn’t stop him because I didn’t want to seem racist.”  No.  You stop it.  You have a moral obligation to stop it.  If your vanity is that pathetic, then by God, he never should have been President.

4 – On to Sessions.  I am sorry, but meeting with a Russian Ambassador is not suspicious.  Let’s be honest, Ambassadors are heavily monitored and spied upon (just ask Flynn).  Putin is ex-KGB.  If he was running some kind of deal through, he would use an American that was converted.  It would be someone you had no idea was remotely related to Russia.   This is just silly.

5 – Sessions answered the question.  His comment about never meeting with Russians was clearly in the context of being a Trump surrogate.

6 – Finally… Sessions is a 70-year-old from the South.  He went through the 50′s.  He went through the missile crisis.  The nuclear hysteria of the 1980s.  The fall of the Berlin wall.  You honestly expect me to believe that Sessions cooperated with the Russians? Nope.  Not buying it.  Sorry.  Premise does not make sense.  You lose!  You get nothing!  Good-day, Sir!

Long Live the Constitution!

“Let’s Not Normalize Trump’s Presidency”

Posted by Troy on 26th February 2017 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

What does that even mean?

Trump was elected as a part of a free election.  They can try to say that Russia influenced the election, but let’s be clear, Russia influenced the election about as much as a man pissing in the ocean contributes to global warming.  The people that voted for Trump despised Hillary Clinton.  Sorry, but that is the truth.  If Democrats had run Jim Webb, they probably would have won.

So if you accept the fact that Trump legitimately won the election, you have to also agree that refusing to normalize his presidency is way more fascist than Trump has been to date.  Basically, what you are saying is that you refuse to accept the results of the election if the person you wanted lost.  If you say, “Yeah, but I’m against everything that Trump stands for, and I don’t like what it says about our country.”  Guess what…that’s the way we felt when Obama won and led us further down the road of Socialism.  Boom.  Grow up.

However, the Left’s leadership and media allies started this “don’t normalize” movement as a way to close people’s minds.  I have no issue with the Left obstructing things they disagree with–like the wall or even the “Muslim Ban.”  But when you move to obstruct 100% of the agenda and refuse to try to work with the administration, refuse to meet, refuse to talk, refuse even on topics you actually agree with, then you have become ideological.  This may work with the hardcore left, but you are going to completely lose people in the middle.  If everything is a crisis, then nothing is a crisis.

Long Live the Constitution!

John McCain – Airing the Family’s Dirty Laundry

Posted by Troy on 20th February 2017 in Current Events, Political

I am all for freedom of speech.  Say whatever you want.  However, when you are overseas, SHUT YOUR MOUTH.  When you are talking to our allies and our enemies, you show a united front.  In a strong family, a husband and wife, a brother or sister, a parent and child may be fighting like rabid dogs, but publically, they show solidarity.  McCain should be saying things like “Divided?  Oh, don’t believe everything you hear on the news.  Our country is united and stronger than ever.”  Instead, he is trashing our President.  I also got onto the Dixie Chicks when they did this overseas regarding President George W. Bush.  Again, say anything you want at home.  When you’re out in the world, you do not trash your family.  You do not trash your country.  Doing so isn’t just in bad taste.  It emboldens our enemies and makes our allies frightful.  McCain, of all people, should know this.

Long Live the Constitution!

When the CIA becomes the KGB – The Michael Flynn Saga

Posted by Troy on 15th February 2017 in Entertainment, Political

I hate to break it to CNN and the Democrats, but I have a feeling that most people are not all that concerned about Michael Flynn’s phone call.  It seems common sense and natural that an in-coming administration would talk to diplomats to establish relationships and start forging ahead.  The people really upset about this are the same people that chose to look the other way at the Fast and Furious, IRS scandal, Benghazi, the Clinton Foundation, and countless other gross violations.

Release the transcript.

That’s how you know that whatever said was pretty tame.  In this “Anti-Trump” environment, if it was actually something noteworthy, it would have been plastered all over the front page.

In regards to Michael Flynn, I will wait to pass any judgement until I see the transcript.  I assume that this is politicians playing politics.  Until I see some sort of proof that he actually said anything of note, I will not get excited.

However, what makes me afraid is this:

People are claiming that un-elected government workers should thwart foes foreign and domestic. Well, I agree.  It’s every citizen’s duty to defend the Constitution, but Trump had done nothing of the sort.  To date, he has done more to recognize the Constitution than any President I have seen in my adult life.  I remember Obama constantly assaulting the Constitution.  Bear in mind, he had more 0 to 9 decisions (including two Justices that HE appointed!) than any other President in history.

Transference/Projection:

Trump and his supporters are fascists that will be rioting in the street if he loses!  Well, it would seem that Hillary supporters are the ones that cannot accept the results of the election.  They are the ones that are rioting in the streets and hitting people and burning things.  Nothing says you are anti-fascist like beating the shit outta people that don’t share your beliefs.

Michael Flynn gave speeches to the Russians!  Yeah…and Bill gave speeches to them for millions of dollars in advance of 25% of the North American supply of uranium being sold to Russia.

The Left praised Bush for not getting involved in criticizing the next President.  Meanwhile, Obama sets up an organization and affiliates himself with groups funding the professional rioters.

The Left likes to portray Trump supporters as belligerent morons.  Yet, if they ever bring themselves to actually have a political discussion with me or any other Trump supporter, it quickly turns into the leftist just screaming.

The Left claims that Trump is delivering us into the hands of the Russians, and the Russians are trying to make us lose faith in our institutions.  Yeah, like California succeeding wouldn’t work against us.  No people can be conquered if they are united.  I have never seen us so fractured.  Instead of trying to come together at all, the Left is driving their base into a frenzy and sowing seeds of hatred among them.  What has Trump done to divide us anywhere on the scale of what I just mentioned?  In fact, considering the vile and extreme sentiments aimed at him constantly, his responses have been very mute and restrained.  To the regular people who spew bile at him, he has been completely silent.

Meanwhile, while all of this is going on, Trump’s administration is cracking down on Russia at the UN.  Mattis is getting NATO to actually fund more for their own defense.  Japan and Israel seem thrilled at our new President.  You can tell by their body language that when Trump says America stands behind their allies, they believe him–whereas Obama’s promises of support were mere bluff.  Just ask the Syrians what red-lines drawn by Obama meant.

What I fear is that the CIA really is the shadow-government that conspiracy theorists claim.  Do as they say, or they will destroy you.  This is dangerous.  If this is true, this means that no one is safe.  Also, there are protections in place to protect American citizens even if the CIA is tapping Russian diplomats (which they always are–just as we are always interfering in the elections of Russia, Israel, Canada, England…).  Given the time that these taps were happening, this means that Obama or one of his higher level minions spied on their political opponents.  You want to talk about Soviet Russia?

I don’t fear the Russians.  I have shot Russian ammunition.  After you do so, you will understand that Russia is no real threat.

If an operative shows up with plans for Trump to declare martial law, I will applaud them.  If someone assassinates a President that declares martial law, I will applaud them.  But what is happening here is that things are being leaked to undermine Trump’s Presidency.  They want him to look weak and stupid and hurt our international relations.  Why?  Because Trump is a danger to our country?  What seems to be a bigger danger to our country?  One man which is subject to the checks and balances that have kept us a free people for close to 250 years?  Or does it seem more likely that fomenting civil unrest, pitting countryman against countryman, undermining the trust of our allies, and emboldening our enemies?  Is having the world on fire worth making Trump look bad?  Bear in mind, you either want blood in the streets or Trump to lose in four years.  WOW!  Yey!  That’s all you will get if you are successful.  A weaker country.  That’s what you want.  Just for a better chance of beating one man at one election in four years.

To anyone that thinks I am being inconsistent, here is the difference between what is happening and Wiki-Leaks: Wiki-Leaks was a private group.  I also think they should be held accountable for their illegal acts.  That does not mean that I will not consider the information that is provided out of something that is obtained illegally.  Truth must be regarded, but those those broke the law must be held to account.  But this is a government agency working against its political opponents.  That is dangerous.  This is what makes totalitarian regimes.  If Flynn broke a law, he should face the punishment.  But I am MUCH more concerned about the government acting to suppress their political prisoners.

Long Live the Constitution!
