Fox News Debate

Posted by Troy on 3rd March 2016 in Current Events, Political

This wasn’t a debate.  This was just Trump bashing.  The entire venue was designed to attack Trump.  This debate had little or nothing to do with learning more about the candidates’ positions.  The amount of time they spent on Trump’s civil case was insane.  If this had been a serious debate, the moderators would have reeled them in.  This is about Fox News and the establishment trying to stop Donald Trump.  I agree with Andrew Wilkow.  I wish that they had showed half as much interest in stopping Obama or Hillary.  It’s backfiring though.  I find myself wanting to support him more.  If they fear him this much, there must be more of a reason.  He has 49% of the vote nationally among Republicans.  This is the Establishment throwing a hissy fit.  When they force a Romney down our throats, we are told “Well, he’s the nominee…so you have to support the party because you don’t want a DEMOCRAT…dooooo you?!!!”  But when the people choose a candidate that the Establishment doesn’t like, they go NUTS.

I am very ashamed of Fox News.  This wasn’t a debate.  It was an ambush.

Long Live the Constitution!

Fox News Republican Debate

Posted by Troy on 28th January 2016 in Uncategorized

Without a doubt, this was the best debate.  It was nice to focus on the policy without the moderators making everything all about Trump.

Donald Trump – Turns out he was the big winner of the night.  Assuming that he maintains the support of 1/3rd of the people,   His followers are very loyal, so it is going to be hard for someone to take support away from him.  The big worry tonight was that Cruz would make use of Trump’s absence to demolish him.  Instead, Ted overplayed his hand and fell flat.  The only danger of the night resolved, Trump won.

Ted Cruz – He had a golden opportunity, and started off well.  But then he started complaining about how everyone was out to get him.  He came across as whiney and weak.  He attempted to turn it into a joke at Trump’s expense, and it fell flat.  This is very much like Jeb’s demand for Trump’s apology.  I don’t think it’s fatal, but it ruined what could have been a very good night.  He made a very good recovery on the immigration question.  He did a good job on ethanol in a state that makes a lot of money on ethanol.

Marco Rubio – Good showing for the Senator.  He came across as positive and earnest.  Rand savaged him early.  Rand is Rubio’s counterpoint.  Liberty vs Security.  And like all such discussions, it turns out that security is merely an illusion and falls apart when Liberty is talking.  He does a good job of trying to deny he supported amnesty considering how many clips show that he pretty much supports amnesty.  He is doing a good job of brining energy to his message.  That’s going to help him.

Ben Carson – Fantastic opening for Ben Carson.  He is speaking with a resolute tone of voice, and his message of Truth resonates as all messages of Truth does.  He gets so little screen time.  He gives great answers!  Loved his answer about 1 in 10 being a terrorist coming into your home.  Carson did a great job with the hardest question of the night regarding Putin invading Baltic states.  I think he had the most striking closing statement.

Jeb Bush – He is a statist.  He wants expanded war powers.  He also wants to bring Puerto Rico into the union, which is Krazi!  Why on Earth would we bring in an economic unpowered house full of crime?  He is chained to his past record, and that’s not a good record to be on.  I like how he dumps on Rubio on amnesty when he like amnesty.  Here’s the truth.  If you “give a path to citizenship,” the Democrats will attempt to “acceletrate the process.”  It will be a “one time thing” that will happen the NEXT time we have millions of “undocumented workers.”  If he thinks he would be Clinton, he is delusional.  Nothing would motivate Democrats more than running against Bush.

Rand Paul – He makes great arguments.  It is a shame that his presentation is so low-energy.  He did some great work regarding “criminal reform.”  He had a lot of good points.  He did a great job on the abortion question.  I do believe he is the only one that could balance the budget.

Chris Christie – It annoys me that he always sounds pretty good even though I believe that he is an imperial scumbag that would take a lot of vacations and have Bruce Springsteen to the White House.  Really good answer on Planned Parenthood.  That really gains him some ground.  I will say that he gets a bad rap on Bridge-gate.  He fired the people.  As such, I believe him.  This is the key principal difference between him and Obama with his scandals.

John Kasich – He seems to be speaking in platitudes tonight.  I think it’s because no one likes his plans.  Great…government equals charity…this is why I don’t like him.  Did Bret listen to Kasich at all on the Iran question?  Weird.  I mean…he is boring, but that is Bret’s only job, isn’t it?

Long Live the Constitution!

Why I hate reporters

Posted by Troy on 19th September 2012 in Current Events, Political

A free press is necessary for a free people.  The only way we can keep our politicians honest is by being informed about what they are doing.  However, our current media is a lap dog of the Left (as I show in 2084: the Search for Love Hope and Faith).  Here are some examples:

1) The Middle East is burning.  Instead of asking Obama what he is going to do about it, they hound Romney (who has no power whatsoever) about his opinion on the matter.

2) They report on Romney’s secret tapes, even though it was obvious that they were clipped to be misleading.  When the full tape shows that Romney was actually just saying that he wasn’t going to try to get the dependent class’s vote (as I predicted), there was no retraction.

3)  You know if the stuff going on in the Middle East was happening on Bush’s watch, you would see 24/7 coverage of burning embassies.

4)  When gas hit $3 a gallon under Bush, it was wall to wall coverage.  Under Obama, gas doubled to $4 a gallon, and not a word is said.

5)  We continually hear about Romney’s tax returns but not about Obama’s school records.

6)  A massive government coverup involving an international event (Fast and the Furious) barely gets mentioned.  Again, do you think the same would have happened under Bush?

7)  After all the criticism over the Patriot Act, the Democrats elected to renew it.  How much air time did that get?  Pretty much none, after 6 years of raving about it when Bush was around.

8)  Where are the tapes of Obama telling the Russians he’ll have more flexibility when he doesn’t have to care what we think?

9)  Where are the tapes showing that Obama knows that doing away with the capital gains rate will hurt the economy and bring less money to the government but he wants to do it out of “fairness?”

10)  Where is the report about the planned insurgency training for 2016?

11)  Where are the reports concerning all the UN treaties which will devour our rights?

12)  Why does the media seem all but silent on the fact that our debt is out of control, we are printing money out of thin air, unemployment is pretty much stagnant, and Congress has been unable to pass a budget due to Democrats (House Republicans have passed budgets, and the Senate won’t hear them).

13)  Why are Republicans blamed for stalemates when the Senate Democrats will not even bring bills to the floor for discussion or votes?

14)  Every act of violence is put to the Tea Party.  When it turns out it’s wrong, it’s barely mentioned.

15)  The Tea Party is branded a racist group even though there is a lack of evidence for that and a lot of their heroes are minorities (Allen West, Herman Cain, Mia Love, Rubio etc).

16)  Occupy Wall Street was a great movement despite all the evidence of rapes, drugs, theft, vandalism, communism, anarchism, bomb making, etc etc etc.

17)  When Bush was in power, we heard every single death in Afghanistan multiple times a day.  So much more footage, etc.  Suddenly, these deaths aren’t as big a deal.

18)  Gitmo was a huge deal under Bush.  Now?  Not so much.

I could go on and on and on.   The bottom line is that the news media makes me sick.  It’s all indoctrination.  It is clear that they are in bed for Obama and even brought the lube.  I just hope we don’t get screwed too.

Long Live the Constitution!
