The Second “Debate”

Posted by Troy on 16th October 2020 in Uncategorized

I did not watch the Biden Town Hall.  In hindsight, it lived up to my expectations (Didn’t pin him down on court packing, didn’t ask about Hunter’s laptop, etc).  But the Trump Town Hall was a joke.

Trump has denounce white supremacy over and over and over and over and over again.  How many times does a man have to denounce something.  Even after he flatly denounced it, Savannah said, “That sounds like a dodge.”  What the F___ are you taking about?!!!!

Why must Trump denounce people all the time?  How many Q-Anon members are there?  Who are they hurting, exactly?  Must the Left denounce Wiccans who were supposedly hexing Trump?  What about Antifa?  Etc etc etc.

Honestly, I think Trump did pretty well, but the vast majority of questions from Savannah (either upfront or as follow up to the actually people where were the ones who were supposed to ask the questions) were trivial, misleading, or of malicious intent.

Riots and the 2nd Amendment

Posted by Troy on 1st June 2020 in Uncategorized

I wonder if people living in these gun controlled states are starting to rethink their position on the Second Amendment.  You have the mayors and governors giving stand down orders to the police.  Why?  Because they are afraid of the optics of the police confronting “protesters.”  So, one maniac runs over a chick in Charlottesville, and we get it non-stop about how all Trump supporters are white supremacists.  These anarchists are burning buildings, looting, and attacking law-abiding citizens; and we are informed that the protests are “mostly peaceful.”  Armed citizens show up at the capital of Michigan and peacefully protest, and they are Fascists.  These guys throw Molotovs, and they are peaceful.  Note:  I understand that the bulk of the protesters are just that.  If you truly need help telling the difference: holding a sign = protester; holding a Molotov = criminal.

So, when your government refuses to protect you and denies you access to a firearm to defend yourself, what are your options exactly?  I suppose you turn to the First Amendment and pray.

Just don’t do it in a church.  That shit is illegal in California.

Long Live the Constitution!

My thoughts on Trump’s impeachment

Posted by Troy on 30th September 2019 in Uncategorized

First of all, the phone call is nothing.  That isn’t me being a Trumper.  That is my objective stance.  If Trump said “I need dirt on Biden.  I don’t care if you make it up, just make this happen.”  I would have a problem with that.  Biden is not his opponent yet and probably would never be anyway.  Even if he was, Trump is investigating possible corruption in connection to a 1999 treaty signed by Bill Clinton.  Unless you want to say all politicians are exempt from investigation, you can’t say too much about it.  If you want to throw a fit about it, you have to defend Hillary and Obama and Senante Democrats going to foreign intelligence agencies for dirt on Trump.   As far as withholding funds, Trump always does this, and the money got paid.

People say that everything Biden did was on the up and up.  Why is it that Ukraine is the only country Obama played hardball with?  Drop off billions in cash to Iran, a mortal enemy, nail an ally to the  wall?

Everything about this is dirty.

1- They changed the rules 30 days out from the complaint to allow second hand information as whistleblower.

2 – They allow hersay as evidence.  That is so messed up!  I heard Bill Clinton likes to have sex with eight-year-olds.  Better investigate him.

3 – The complaint was not written by a whistleblower.  No one talks that way.  It was written by someone with the statutes in front of them.

4 – It was written to attempt to get Bill Barr to recluse himself.

5- Why would they demand to see the complaint when they had the transcript? Because thtranscript proves nothing is there.  They wanted to build the case on the complaint and us Trump withholding the transcript as a cover-up.  Trump blew that up by releasing it.  That is why Schiff made up his “parody.”

6 – The media and Democrats are using the same tactics over and over.  64,000 repetitions make a truth.

7 – A source document with unsubstantiated sources and based on news reports?  This is the Steele dossier all over again.

8 – The firm representing the whistleblower is connected to the Clintons and offers money for leaks on Trump.

9 – Nancy Pelosi initiates impeachment without taking a vote.  That is just wrong!

10- Trump doesn’t have his Constitutional right to confront his accuser?  That is just wrong!

11 – This is doomed to failure and will only serve to further divide our country.

Long live the Constitution!

My Epstein conspiracy theory

Posted by Troy on 12th August 2019 in Current Events

It is hard to believe it is a simple suicide given all the facts and circumstances.  So here is my conspiracy theory:

He was part of a ring.  Patrons were given girls of a certain age, a safe place to practice their taste, and the promise of anonymity.  In exchange for this, they agreed to an expensive price tag and to be videoed or photographed.  This was to assure mutual protection.

Epstein was the concierge and was afforded a billionaire lifestyle as payment and as a cover to how he had all these high power friends.

Epstein was saved once, but now there is too much attention and he could not be saved again.  As such, he was ordered to kill himself to make good on the mutual protection pact.

There ya go.

The proposed gun control measures

Posted by Troy on 7th August 2019 in Current Events, Human Nature

I thought that Trump’s speech on the shootings was very good.

I do think that our culture of celebrating death and violence is a factor.  It is a joke that Hollywood demands gun control while making millions every year featuring these evil guns.  I think these things do have an effect, but it the vast majority of people can partake and not go on killing sprees, so it doesnt make sense to ban them.

The red flag laws sound like a good idea but are inherently problematic.  What is the threshold? Who decides if someone is a danger?  Is there any punishment for false accusation?  What if someone actually is a danger and gets their guns back and is now super pissed?

Everyone talks about needing expanded background checks, but in all these mass shootings, the guns were purchased subject to a background check.

What about an assault weapons ban?  Frankly it would have little effect on the problem.  Shooters would just use different weapons.  The Virginia State shooter used pistols.

There is only one thing that will make us safe, and that is morality.  The real issue is that we have a bunch of lonely young men.  They have no friends.  They generally don’t have a girlfriend.  They lack purpose and direction.  They spiral and snap.  The only effective way forward is to rebuild the foundations of morality and community that we have lost.

Long live the Constitution!

Tim Ryan and Others and Their Reaction to the Shootings

Posted by Troy on 5th August 2019 in Current Events, Human Nature, Political

Without even missing a breath, Democrat contenders blame the shootings on Trump for saying we should send illegal immigrants back to their home country.

First of all, nothing I am to say is to excuse the actions of the shooters.  When Columbine happened, I remarked the fact that no one talked about the bullying those kids received prior to snapping.  That didn’t justify them.

Second, the Ohio shooter was a crazy leftist and hated Trump.

Third, the El Paso shooter said he was that way before Trump.

Fourth, likewise with the Columbine shooter, the failure of our government to secure the border created an environment that created frustration and other negative emotions that set this off.

Fifth, we don’t discuss how social media or the political statements on both sides may have played a factor.  They say Trump saying “send them back” causes it but don’t consider how promising healthcare or citizenship or open borders may have fed into this man’s actions.

Finally, it is a damn shame that the Left is so gung ho to blame Trump.  They appear MUCH more interested in using it politically than addressing any problem.  They would have been better served to come out and say, “The only one to blame for this is the sick individual who pulled the trigger.  But we must come together and figure out how we can prevent these kinds of attacks.”  Come at it as an open invitation to a discussion instead of a perfunctory statement of blame and a push for the same requested gun control measures that would not have prevented such an attack or would have merely made the shooter choose a different gun as the only difference.

On Baltimore

Posted by Troy on 29th July 2019 in Current Events, Political

A lot of people claim to be upset by Trump’s Baltimore comment.  However, I take severe issue with one commentator’s condemnation.  She likened Baltimore to LA saying that if you go to Skid Row, yes, they have a filth and rat problem, but if you go to Beverly Hills, LA is gorgeous.

Doesn’t she get that this is worse? What she is admitting is there is plenty of money in the city.  They are taking care of the rich people, but they are not providing adequate, basic services to poor side of town.  This isn’t like schools.  With a school, the kids and the parents have a real affect on outcome.  But a poor rat dies just as easily as a rich rat.

Muller’s hearing

Posted by Troy on 24th July 2019 in Current Events, Political

A study in confirmational bias.  It will change no minds in either direction.

Democrats keep harping on Trump’s desire to obstruct justice.  I say desire as he asked people to obstruct and they  did not.  So you have no  actual obstruction on a case with no crime on a case that is possibly generated on lies and inuendo dreged up by the opposition party who lost an election.  Frankly, pushing obstruction on this fact-set would be a travesty of justice.

On the otherside, Republicans effectively showed that the investigation played hardball with everyone connected to Trump and softball with anyone connected to Hillary.  He showed bias in choosing not to investigate any thread that is connected to Hillary.  And he showed bias in how he staffed the investigation.

When questioned by Democrats he more or less said “if that’s what the report says, that is correct.” When questioned by Republicans, he said “I can’t speak on that.”  He even said that on stuff that was actually covered in the report!  A lot of times, he sounded like he did not know what was actually in the report.

I think this was a total disaster for the Democrats.  They would have been better served by trying to fix healthcare or immigration or infrastructure.  They have wasted their time and look ridiculous.

Acosta got what he deserved

Posted by Troy on 8th November 2018 in Current Events, Political

I would have banned Acosta a long time ago.  My break moment would have come at the White House Easter Egg Roll.  Acosta sought conflict on a day that was meant to be a fun day for children at the White House, and I would have pulled his credentials and had him escorted off the grounds.

Acosta was acting with a total lack of decorum.  As soon as he touched the intern, he sealed his fate.  That was inexcusable.  That girl was only doing her job.  While the touch was slightly more than incidental, it is inexcusable.  The Press is there as a courtesy to them and to the American people.  They have no right to be there.  They do not.  You want to believe they do, maybe, but you would be wrong.  Freedom of the press means they can write and say whatever they want.  They have no right to access.  That is something that Presidents give to them.  It can be taken away.  With that as a background, Acosta should have passed the microphone.  His tone was a total lack of respect, as it always is.  Trump tolerated that.  He should have passed the mic, but he persisted, and Trump tolerated that.  The intern went in to take the mic, which is akin to giving someone the hook.  As soon as he pushed her arm away, that was something that Trump could no longer tolerate.  His body language changed and he stepped away from the podium.  The look on that intern’s face said it all.

The White House Correspondents Association is wrong to take Acosta’s side.  What they are basically saying is that their members should be allowed to act asinine, hog the mic which is a disrespect to the other journalists there, and commit light assault with no repercussions.  This stance means that they condone such behavior.  They are on the wrong side of this argument, and they demean their other members by supporting a member who had crossed the line.  And before you say “All for one and one for all!” or any other stupidity, I would like to remind you that they all came down hard when Daily Caller’s Neil Munro interrupted Obama.  But I guess that’s different.  That was Obreezy.  A’ight?

I guarantee, if any reporter from Fox had treated Obama with anything approaching the way Acosta treats Trump, they would have been GONE and there would have been universal condemnation.  Don’t pretend that this is anything other than Trump hate.

Long Live the Constitution!

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!
