Musings on the Week

July 20, 2019


Government - “For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.”  Thomas Jefferson. 

Politics I am an “American,” rather than racist, since I’m only biased against people who despise this country and its limited government ideal as defined by the Founders Fathers.

Politics – Republican opposition to Democrats has nothing to do with their gender, religion, or race, but the content of their policies, as they seek to impose the fraud of socialism on the American people stealing power from the people and giving that power to the government.

Politics – The Democrat “New Woke” creed preaches that America was created by slavery, greed and genocide with no redeeming qualities, deserving neither respect nor admiration.

Politics – To the surprise of nobody, Democrat internal polling shows swing voters don't like progressives and their ideas to transform the party to Democratic Socialism.

Politics – When you build a movement based on identity politics, which by nature divides, you cannot expect to cultivate unity and cannot expect to bring people together across their ideological fissures, but rather you can only expect more and more fragmentation.

Politics – Everything the president says or does is instantly denounced by the Democrats and their media allies as racist, cruel, crazy, or crass, so default Republican response is ignore it!

Politics – The vapid “gang of four Congresswomen, Ayanna Pressley (Peoples Republic of Cambridge), Rashida Tlaib (Dearborn-istan), and Ilhan Omar (Minneapol-istan), and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NYC sock puppet) are giving Nancy Pelosi (Scat Francisco) fits.

Politics – Support for President Trump is increasing because Americans of all races are seeing improvements in their lives, standards of living, jobs, and equality.

Media – President Trump is playing the Leftists like a violin: highlighting the Communist-loving “gang of four” as the face of the Democrat Party with hateful intent and radical ideas.

Media – Polling that ask participant’s opinions is useful for shaping policy but reactive, while polling that tries to shape participant’s opinions is proactive but deceitful.

Government – “A wise and frugal government, which shall restrain men from injuring one another, shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned.” Thomas Jefferson. 

Culture – The never-ending culture war has done exactly what it was supposed to do: discredit and demean social and religious conservative norms and beliefs.

Immigration – In California’s Los Angeles County, investigation found there are 1.6 million more voter registrations on file that there are citizens of voting age that live in L.A. county.

Environment – Because the mainstream media has abandoned objectivity in favor of cheerleading for more powerful, intrusive government and uncritical acceptance of the unproven science of climate change, it’s no surprise that public opinion polls show the only professions consistently falling below journalists when people are asked to rank professions on their trustworthiness or ethical standards are politicians and used-car salespeople.

Family – The absence of a father in the home is a strong contributing factor to poverty, crime, school failure, drug abuse, and emotional disturbance, as 29% of white children, 53% of Hispanic children and 73% of black children are born to unmarried women

Civil Rights – Democrats seem to believe that refighting the racial battles of the 1960s that were thought to have been resolved is a winning campaign strategy in 2020.

Civil Rights – The true nature of identity politics now includes accusations for no reason at all, and lazy insults are made as a way to replace substantive debate of your argument or idea.

Security – “For a people who are free, and who mean to remain so, a well-organized and armed militia is their best security.” Thomas Jefferson.

Israel – As long as “Palestinians” (Hamas and Fatah), whose goal is Israel eradication, have a voice in the “peace” process, there will be more violence and no chance of true peace.

Somalia – The Global War on Terror continues because the terrorists' war on America continues and has no boundaries, and Somalia is just one of many battlegrounds.
