That’s a Man, Baby!

I’m a “live and let live” type of guy.  I don’t care who you sleep with, what you wear, or what affectations you’ve decided to adopt.  I am unconcerned with other people’s sexual proclivities.  As long as you aren’t attempting to bed children, I couldn’t care less about your sex life.  That doesn’t mean that I approve of every behavior a person could adopt — I just don’t care.

If a guy wants to dress up like a woman, I am not interested in preventing him from doing so.  If a woman wants to wear a suit and call herself Charlie, it doesn’t matter to me.  I might think that they’re odd — but once again, it’s none of my business.  I don’t care.

The Establishment Strikes Back

gop-white-house-reach-budget-deal.jpg&maxw=600&q=100&cb=20151027112250&cci_ts=20151027112249For years we’ve heard the disgruntled among us say that there’s really just one political party, and that Democrats and Republicans are just two sides of the same coin.  It turns out that’s completely correct.  The establishment of the Republican Party is much more interested in maintaining the status quo than in implementing any real conservative agenda.  You and I have simply been the chumps that believed their rhetoric and gave them control of Congress as a check on the excesses of the Democratic Party and Barack Obama.

Why are Democrats Discounting Bernie Sanders?

Bernie 2As we all enjoy the spectacle of the Donald Trump candidacy, the other big story of the election season is being discounted by the media and the power brokers of the Democratic Party.   That story is the unprecedented rise of an unabashed socialist as a legitimate contender for the Democratic Party’s nomination for the presidency.  As I write this, Senator Bernie Sanders is leading in the polls in the early primary states.  In Iowa, Sanders is beating Hillary Clinton by 22 points in a YouGov/CBS News Poll.  The Real Clear Politics average of polls has him dominating Hillary in New Hampshire  42.3% to 34.7%.  And the new CNN/ORC poll has Sanders trailing Hillary nationally by only 10 points.  If Sanders is consistently on the rise, and Hillary is steadily on the decline, why is there a movement by the Party and the media to find another candidate?

Is Hillary Above the Law?

hillary_rays1We are a nation of laws, not men.  When there are legitimate suspicions regarding illegality or impropriety at the highest levels of government, we have mechanisms in place to ensure at least an appearance of objectivity during an investigation.  One of these would be the Attorney General referring matters to the the Office of Special Counsel.  Appointment of a Special Counsel to investigate Executive Branch officials shields the Administration from accusations of a cover-up.  Why hasn’t this occurred in the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of a private email system and server during her tenure at the State Department?

Hillary Has Been Played

Hillary What DifferenceFor quite some time our politicians have gotten away with lying directly to the American people.  President Obama said that “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan,” when attempting to sell us on Obamacare.  That wasn’t exactly true.  George W. Bush said that we shouldn’t engage in “nation building,” and yet that was the core strategy he utilized while waging war after 9/11.  Bill Clinton lied to us so often that Democrats started bragging about what a great liar he was.  Hillary Clinton has also been lying to us, and we’ve known it all along.

The Donald Trump Express

usa-election-trumpThe media and the professional political class are dumbfounded at the rise of Donald Trump.  First they said that he was only pretending to run for President for the free publicity.  Then they said that he’d never publicly release his financial information.  Then NBC, Univision, and Macy’s severed business ties with him.  That was probably a mistake if the idea was to stop his White House run, as he now has nothing to lose.

Mike Huckabee, Holocaust Exploiter?

HuckabeeOn Saturday, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said on Breitbart News: “This president’s foreign policy is the most feckless in American history. It is so naive that he would trust the Iranians. By doing so, he will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven. This is the most idiotic thing, this Iran deal. It should be rejected by both Democrats and Republicans in Congress and by the American people. I read the whole deal. We gave away the whole store. It’s got to be stopped.”  For this bit of salient analysis Huckabee is being castigated by the Anti-Defamation League, most of the media, and the ruling elites of both political parties.  For his part, Huckabee not only hasn’t backed down, he’s vigorously defending his position.
