Why the Helsinki Summit Ticked Me Off

Posted by Troy on 16th July 2018 in Uncategorized

Or more appropriately, why the coverage of it ticked me off.  What it proved, beyond a shadow of the doubt, is that Trump can’t win with these people.

Just days before meeting with Putin, Rod Rosenstein comes out with a list of indictments against Russians for “meddling in our election.”  Immediately, there are calls for Trump to cancel the meeting, or at the very least, not to meet one on one.  If he cancelled the trip, it would be “proof” that Trump had colluded with Putin.  If he did not meet one on one, it signals weakness to Putin and it also would surely lead to leaks unless that person was beyond reproach–however, anyone that trustworthy for Trump would have been utterly dismissed by the people who demand others be present.  Finally, if he met with Putin one on one, then people would say that Trump was committing treason behind closed doors.  Trump can’t win.

Putin says, “I wanted Trump to win,” and the Left goes nuts.  Ah!  Proof!  Of course, we are supposed to believe that Putin is being honest when he says he wanted Trump to win, but he is lying when he says that Russia didn’t interfere in the election.  Putin’s trustworthiness, as with everything, is determined in relation to if it helps or hurts Trump.  With the media on his side, there’s no way Putin can lose.  No matter what he does or says, the US media will do his dirty work by sowing division in our country.  Meanwhile, Trump can’t win.

People ask him, “Mr. Trump!  What are you going to do about the Crimea?”  Where were these helpful souls in 2014?  You know which President should have done something?  Obama.  You know what multinational organization should have done something?  NATO.  Do you know what either of those did?  NOTHING.  Maybe if they started mobilizing troops and planes to the Ukraine and Crimea in 2014, Putin would have abandoned his plans, but now he occupies the Crimea.  The Crimea is gone.  The only thing that will get it back at this point is a hot war.  The moment came, and Obama chickened out.  NATO/Europe, in their typical fashion, appeased instead of fought.  It is Germany invading Czechoslovakia all over again.  So, if Trump demands it back, Putin’s going to say “No.”  Then what?  I suppose there are two options, Trump goes home looking weak as hell, or he mobilizes the military, gets us into a hot war, and basically starts WWIII (or at the very least allows his critics to call him a warmonger).  Trump can’t win.

Gowdy says in his shrill, annoying voice (I used to be 90/10 with this guy and now I’m down to 60/40 with the stupid crap that comes outta his mouth…) “The first thing Trump needs to do when he gets over there is demand Russia hand over these 12 nationals.”  Okay, to what end?  Putin will say, “No.”  Then what?  Trump looks weak.  This is the same thing that happened when Jeb demanded Trump apologize to his wife.  You never demand something if there is any doubt about getting it.  There’s actually no doubt about this… PUTIN WILL NOT TURN OVER THESE PEOPLE.  So Trump looks weak and gets nothing in return other than elevating Putin and giving his critics more ammo to ridicule him with.  Trump can’t win.

Then everyone says that he should have confronted Putin about the meddling.  Well, that’s great.  The more Trump shouts about Russian meddling, the more he damages his own presidency by basically saying “I was not duly elected!”  To which he was, but perception is everything.  It’s also silly when every country is meddling in pretty much every election.  Obama tried like hell to get Netanyahu defeated in Israel, and that’s our ally!  I mean, I expect enemies to sabotage and backstab, but when friends do it, that’s despicable.  It’s also laughable since Hillary injected herself into the Russian election trying to get Putin defeated.  Or as Chris McDaniel put it, “The democrat stance is that 12 Russians swung the election but that 12 million illegals have no effect whatsoever.”  But again!  To what end?  “You meddled in our election.”  “No, we didn’t.”  I mean, does that just devolve into a “liar liar pants on fire/I know you are but what am I” playground-style fight?  Does Putin get to play the high-road and declare that he had Trump over in good faith and Trump insulted him to his face?   Do we go to war over this or something?  Trump can’t win.

And that’s what ticks me off about the entire thing.  Nothing he could have done would have sufficed.  Everything was a trap one way or another.  Based on this, his Helsinki trip was basically perfect just because it wasn’t an unmitigated disaster.  More and more, the media has become the boy that cried “Hitler!”  75% of the country has stopped listening to them entirely.  The other 25% take their daily dose day after day and get more wound-up and rabid.  This cannot end well.

Long Live the Constitution!

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!

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!

Long Live the Constitution!

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.

Hillary Betrays Herself

Posted by Troy on 13th March 2018 in Political

While speaking in Mumbi, India, Hillary had to defend why she lost.  Rather than say something like, “I am tragically unlikable,” which would have been at least self-aware, she instead decided to share how she viewed America.  Her comments make her “basket of deplorables” line look like pillow-talk.  Pay attention, because this is exactly how the political elite view us:

“If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where [President Donald] Trump won. I win the coasts, I win you know Illinois, Minnesota, places like that.  But what the map doesn’t show you is that I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product. So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward, and his whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.  You know, you didn’t like black people getting rights. You didn’t like women y’know, getting jobs, you don’t want, y’know, see that Indian American succeeding more than you are, whatever your problem is, I’m gonna solve it.  So it was a symptom but it was also a cause because having someone run for president who voices those ideas, who rejects so much of the American story and our values, was also the underlying cause as well.”

Translation: “I won the parts of America that counts.  The rich part.  The educated part.  The rest of America is just backwards, racist scum.”  They didn’t hate her because she is an elitist bitch.  Nope.  They hated her because they were stupid racists.

Thank God she lost.  Thank God for Federalism!  Without Federalism, this is exactly how it would be: win the coast, screw the rest.

Trump’s Base

Posted by Troy on 1st March 2018 in Current Events, Political

Trump bragged about how he could shoot someone in Time’s Square and his base wouldn’t leave him.  That’s possibly true, but I will tell you this, Mr. Trump, they will leave you if you abandon the Second Amendment.  None of the laws being talked about would have prevented the mast majority of mass shootings.  These are basically infringements of Constitutional rights with no payoff.  Nothing they are suggesting would have prevented a mass shooting.  Mr. Trump, if you go against the Second Amendment, don’t bother running in 2020.  Your base will abandon you, and you will lose.  I assure you, they are way more loyal to the Second Amendment than to you.

Trump vs the NRA…and the Constitution

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

I’ll give the guy credit, when he decides to do something, he decides to do something.  However, I now officially disagree with a lot of what he is trying to do regarding guns.

I cannot advocate for an age restriction on all guns.  I might be willing to do so for “assault weapons,” but that really won’t change anything.  How many school shooters are over twenty-one?  How many bought their guns vs used their parents?  Even if you take that off the table, couldn’t they just use other guns?  I do not like the idea of an age restriction for all guns.  I’m sorry, once you are off on your own, you should be able to buy a gun for your own protection.  This is especially important for teen girls as a gun levels the playing field against rapists and other predators.

I do like the ability for someone to be flagged due to exposure to law enforcement or if multiple people petition the court due to concerns about safety.  However, under no circumstance can the government take the guns and then apply due process.  Due process must come first in a free society.

Trump is a solution oriented guy.  Honestly, these and his other suggestions shows that he is trying to come up with solutions.  He shoots from the hip, and there is a “common sense” aspect to taking someone’s guns immediately if you think they are an immediate threat.  However, I fear the government way more than the random crazy person.

I suspect that his base is letting Trump know how they feel about this issue.  Trump realizes that his base is the one calling the shots, not him.  I am sure that he will realize the error of his ways and walk it back.

Long Live the Constitution!
