 Today’s Quote

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.” – Barack Obama (July 3, 2008 At a campaign event in Fargo, ND)

Dear Thinkers,

You’re broke. Drowning in debt. You seek help. Reaching out to a financial advisor, you ask him what he can do to help. He tells you he has the perfect fix. He is going to spend your money in order to lift you out of debt. Okay, maybe the financial advisor wasn’t a very good idea. 

Taken aback, you hesitate, sliding your wallet back into your pocket. The financial advisor bolsters his pitch,

“No, No, You don’t understand. Keep your money, we’re going to BORROW the money”.

You’re no fool, you won’t allow yourself to be swooned, but you ARE desperate. You’ve heard about friends who have invested and saved in order to accumulate large sums of money… yet, this man is speaking not of wise investment, not of saving, his strategy is literally “spend your money to relieve your situation. That doesn’t compute. Sounds dicey.

There’s a title for this reckless habit: Retail Therapy. Thanks to better judgement, you stow your wallet and walk away.images-1

That sequence illustrates how any rational human would act when confronted by such a scenario. We call it Common Sense. Unfortunately such judgement is not used when electing officials who assume control of our country’s finances. Your justification? Common Sense. Theirs? Keynesian Economics. 

Now let’s simplify things just a bit and get away from the heavy terminology. Spending is bad.    When you don’t have any money, Spending is idiotic. Enter the legacy of President Barack Obama. When boiled down, what has Barack Obama achieved that no other president has?

Becoming the first black President? No, I think not. That either speaks to his ability to run a successful campaign, or to the people that elected him—merely a byproduct of other factors. But what Barack Obama has done more than any other President (or for that matter, world leader,) is spend money. 

That’s correct! Barack Obama, while railing against the rich, has spent more money than anyone in history. In 2007 and 2008, Obama criticized George W. Bush (rightfully so) for being irresponsible and for running the country’s credit card. I happen to agree with Obama wholeheartedly. Yet, if George W. is irresponsible, wouldn’t someone who spends more, be therefore, less responsible? Not unless your name is Barack Obama, where in that case you leave office a hero. Did I mention he (more than) doubled the Bush spending? images-2

Worse, what does that make us? The fools who were swindled into handing over our wallets. But who cares right? You and I won’t have to deal with it…we just pass it on to our kids as we sit at dinner parties and attack those who want to prevent universal healthcare or free college as immoral. Meanwhile, enslaving the next generation into paying for our privileged lifestyle. The Left will berate you into submission over ‘ruining the environment for our own gain, at the expense of our children—that’s unthinkable’.     Is it not wrong to shackle them monetarily? 

The correct word is indentured servitude. But at least most indentured servants had a choice, or at least made a conscious decision to take on debt, meanwhile living off the benefits of the fast, easy, money. But, there is no such luck for the child who is born today. According to Bloomberg News, “Each newborn’s share of the national debt today is more than double what it was in the 1990s,” (my generation). If only we had an idea of what went wrong since the 90’s????? OH. YES. Frivolous, monetary policy! Bush. Obama. Thanks guys! 

But I needn’t convince you of the problems of the Bush Presidency. Matter of fact, Obama himself reminds us at every chance he gets. Good. We we’re on the same page.  

What I intend to do though, is convince Obama (and the Obama advocate, voter, supporter, cheerleader) that his legacy is plagued with hypocrisy. If Obama ran to stop the policies of Bush and instead expanded them (Spending, Guantanamo, War, Citizen Rights, Patriot Act) then what is his legacy? According to Obama’s very own standards: BLATANT FAILURE. 

gty_presidents_jef_120203_wblogSo challenge your friends. (and yourself) Try to name something that Barack Obama has accomplished that doesn’t involve massive spending. You see, the rich are too rich… But he can take 80 million dollars worth of vacations in 8 years. But as long as you go out and read the complete opposite of your actions on a teleprompter, you’re absolved of your sins (I would venture to guess that much of the rich he so adamantly demonizes haven’t spent nearly as much on vacations in their entire lifetime). Remember they’ve been working. And don’t get me started on the number of golf rounds Obama has played throughout his tenure. I’ll let another familiar face do the honors:

Screen Shot 2017-01-20 at 11.38.50 AM

“I killed Bin Laden,” he boasts, when we now know that it would not have been possible without a doctor in Pakistan who developed a way to bait Bin Laden’s children into getting vaccines. Meanwhile the man sits in prison. Obama, the most powerful man in the world, won’t so much as lift a finger. Legacy. 

“We haven’t had a terrorist attack”, “We haven’t had a scandal?”, “I saved the economy”. Has he?


Without a google search, I can name a hand-full of terrorist attacks and I can name multiple scandals, but once again my article is getting too long, so I’ll name five : Orlando, Boston, Ft. Hood, San Bernardino. Minnesota Mall. Legacy.

Scandals: to name just a few… IRS Scandal – Weaponizing the IRS in order to audit groups who disagree with the administration. This is the most powerful misuse of Beaureaucracy in the history of our Nation. Reinforcing the Conservative view that we need to thin out the amount of un-elected officials operating as an oppressive wing of the Executive branch. Legacy. images-3

Fast and Furious – Selling guns to drug cartels… need I say more? I guess I could add that the Obama administration was adamantly devoted to taking guns out of law abiding citizen hands all in the name of safety. You would think that violent drug cartels would pose a bit of a larger threat…? Legacy. 

I could go on… Benghazi…lying about why we got attacked right before an election as to keep the “I defeated terrorism narrative”, (but that would require a full column in itself) Legacy. 

imagesFor his sake, I hope he considers these real scandals. I hope he categorizes these as terrorist attacks. Otherwise the alternative is that we accept them as the norm.

The bottom line: Barack Obama’s legacy is that he has left the United States in an extremely vulnerable position. Yes, militarily (by downsizing the military to pre WW2 levels). Yes, judicially (by appointing several justices who believe the Constitution can be re-written in the way that they deem appropriate). Yes, diplomatically (by drawing red lines and failing to enforce them in both the China Sea and in Syria. Also by abandoning Israel and cutting deals with Iran Egypt, Libya, and Russia). Yes, (by funding ISIS and supplying them with weapons that then were used against the west. Then claiming that ISIS is a JV team and poses no threat leaving a vacuum in Iraq). Yes, from a human rights outlook (by green-lighting drone attacks on American citizens). And yes, by degrading the Constitution and state’s rights (this would occupy an entire book to explain the infinite ways that the president has ursurped law with what he calls his “pen and his phone”). But these are not what concerns us for the moment. What has left America vulnerable beyond all else is the financial mishandling of the Obama administration. This is the legacy of the World’s Most extravagant spender. 

UnknownWhether it be the Affordable Care Act, Stimulus Package 1, Stimulus Package 2, signing every budget that falls upon his desk, bombing missions in the Middle East, coups, military aid to foreign nations like Egypt, doubling food stamps and expanding other entitlement programs, Barack Obama has spent like a drunk white girl on Rodeo Drive. What did we get for all of this?    Debt. Piles of Debt. It’s irresponsible, it’s unpatriotic. And if we’re honest, this has become the hallmark of the Obama Legacy: Retail Therapy. But what do I know, I haven’t run a country. If only we could consult someone who had, 

“The problem is, is that the way Bush has done it over the last eight years is to take out a credit card from the Bank of China in the name of our children, driving up our national debt from $5 trillion dollars for the first 42 presidents — number 43 added $4 trillion dollars by his lonesome, so that we now have over $9 trillion dollars of debt that we are going to have to pay back — $30,000 for every man, woman and child. That’s irresponsible. It’s unpatriotic.” – Barack Obama

January, 12, 2017

Dear Thinkers,

Now let me go out on a limb here and defend the indefensible: Donald J. Trump. Yes, I aim to provide some cover for a certain point of interest that has resurfaced thanks to the beloved―or not so beloved―Meryl Streep. By now, I’m quite positive you know what I’m speaking to. Did he or did he not mock a disabled person?

Throughout the Primary, (being a Cruz supporter) I was the first to be up in arms about this particular incident. Though, after having the facts introduced to me, I began to see this debacle in a different light. But I’ll be the first to admit, I was duped into believing a false narrative as well, and without getting ahead of ourselves, the reason we’ve all been so handily deceived, is because Trump really does look, well… “disabled”, in that videoScreen Shot 2017-01-12 at 1.05.12 PM. What you may not know is that he used this EXACT SAME manorism when making fun of himself…And last I checked he happens to think a bit highly of himself. But we’ll revisit this shortly. 

That said, I think we’ve established that I have nothing to gain from defending him here. 

Like many others, I find Trump’s actions to be distasteful at best, and dare I say, unpresidential. Point being, a defense of Trump doesn’t help me, yet, there is an obvious injustice taking place if anyone is willing to shine 5 minutes of light over the matter. Apparently Ms. Streep and her surrogates who have coined her ‘courageous’ are not willing to do such.

According to Meryl Streep’s deeply controversial speech at the Golden Globes (I still don’t know which awards they hand out there), she recalled “that moment when the person asking to sit in the most respected seat in our country imitated a disabled reporter, someone he outranked in privilege, power, and the capacity to fight back,” as the best performance of the year. Seems a bit contrived, if you ask me, but let’s not waste our time debating whether that deserved to win for best performance. I hope that’s not what Donald meant when he said “we’re gona start winning again”.      

Anyway, the question at hand: Did Trump actually mock the reporter?

Answer: Most certainly yes, but what exactly was he taunting? Unfortunately few have ventured a step farther and asked the second part of that question. Yet, that step’s significance marks the line between fiction and clarity.

So Donald Trump did heckle the reporter, but not for being disabled. He mocked him because his reporting was truly bad. How do I know? It’s quite simple. What is to follow is the story line that few in public are talking about. Neither Democrats, Republicans, or even Trump’s own supporters seem to care to consult the timeline of events that lead to the bomb that interrupted the Golden Globes. Hell, people even go on TV and spout their ignorance all over cable without a care to investigate the actual story. My dear thinker, do read on to prevent yourself from embarrasing yourself in that manner.

In 2001, that same Reporter “lacking the capacity to fight back”, Serge F. Kovaleski, wrote a story for the Washington Post. In the story he wrote that after 9/11 “In Jersey City, within hours of two jetliners’ plowing into the world trade center, law enforcement authorities detained and questioned a number of people who were allegedly seen celebrating the attacks and holding tailgate-style parties on rooftops while they watched the devastation on the other side of the river”.Screen Shot 2017-01-12 at 1.05.32 PM

During this same time period, Democrat, Donald Trump (yes you read that correctly) gave an interview where he explained that he saw thousands of Muslims celebrating the 9/11 terror attacks across the river from Manhattan in New Jersey.

Of course, this dumb statement (though partly true) did not register on the seismographs of the media—or Left for that matter as Trump was a Democratic Mega-Donor.

It wasn’t until years later, when he decided to run for President of the United States as a Republican, did he start receiving heavy backlash for the statement. This of course put the Washington Post, the publication that published Kovaleski’s story about individuals throwing “tailgate-style parties on rooftops”, in a tough position. The Post had accused Trump lying when their very own team—unbeknownst to them—had greenlit, fact-checked, edited, and published the same story. When the Post’s hypocritical nature came to their own attention, they had Kovaleski (now a New York Times Reporter) release a statement on their behalf,

“I certainly do not remember anyone saying that thousands or even hundreds of people were celebrating. That was not the case, as best as I can remember.”

So it was the numbers that were in question by the Post, not the actual story. And to no surprise, the human hyperbole-machine also known as Donald J. Trump was inaccurate about the numbers—not even close. Where exactly did this guy see thousands of muslims on rooftops? Did he look out Trump Tower with a telescope? …second thought, I don’t want the answer to that question. 

This leads us to the moment you’ve been waiting for: Then at a campaign rally, Trump remarked on the half-assed retraction by Kovaleski and the Washington Post. He noted the piece was,

“written by a nice reporter. Now the poor guy–you gotta see this guy….OOOOHHH I don’t know what I said…Ohhh I don’t remember…”he’s going like I don’t remember ahhh ohhh maybe that’s what I said….this is 14 years ago, they didn’t  do a retraction.

If you watch and/or listen to the account, you will see that Trump looks and sounds like someone who is mentally disabled. But my dear Trump haters, before you hang yourself with your own stubbornness, please allow me to remind you that it is you who think Trump acts like someone who is, yes, mentally disabled. It is you who have accused him of being unfit for the job, lacking the right temperment, and for being a bumbling idiot. I happen to agree with much of this, except here’s the problem my dear, stubborn, Leftist: The reporter has a chronic condition that impairs movement in his ARMS.

That’s correct. If you thought disabled meant mentally disabled, then you are yourself the one guilty of judgement, as Serge F. Kovaleski, the more-than-able reporter for the New York Times, is a coherent thinker. He is a powerful writer and Serge is more than capable of doing his job. Though, Meryl doesn’t seem to think as I do when she says, he is lacking “the capacity to fight back”. Matter of fact, does she think that the New York Times employs him as an act of charity? What the hell is she talking about? He’s a damn reporter. What is the job a reporter anyway? To stand up to assholes like Donald Trump and Meryl Streep and expose them for what they are. Pointing out the instances where they are utterly full of crap! Like the ‘thousands of muslims comment,’ and ‘Donald bullied a poor, incompetent reporter’.     This guy has a handicap with his arms not his brain!

Screen Shot 2017-01-12 at 1.06.34 PM

But if you remain the skeptic, that’s welcome, as I’ve got another layer of facts that lie ‘One Level Deepa’ as the archaeologists like to say (or maybe it wasn’t an archaeologist who said that?)

If you pull up clips, Donald Trump has mocked Ted Cruz, mocked himself, and mocked an Army General with the same arm gestures. If you don’t like his arm gestures, then I’m sorry, I agree, he looks like an idiot. But he wasn’t mocking the man for being disabled…unless of course you think that he thinks himself disabled, Ted Cruz (the man who he is considering nominating for the supreme court) disabled, and this Army General disabled. As we agreed earlier, arm movements are what’s at question in the video. You can’t cite his voice as being a reason for belittling the guy because we covered the fact that the man is NOT mentally challenged and does not have a known speech impediment. He simply has problems with his arms…. That’s it. 

As also mentioned, myself being a Ted Cruz supporter, I was blinded by this fallacy. Months ago, I couldn’t believe that he had ‘ridiculed a disabled reporter’. The nerve! I was livid. But I didn’t care to look any deeper than the first layer. Why should I. Donald is an ass face, and it seemed like something he would do and it fit my narrative… but he clearly did NOT mock this man for being handicapped. He mocked him for not standing by his story and caving under pressure from the media. When he imitated Cruz and the General, it was for wavering on waterboarding and for shiting positions on ISIS. Which means, this is Trump’s flustered interpretation for someone who has not taken a clear position (whether it’s waterboarding, ISIS, or even 9/11 celebrations). For goodness sake, Trump accused Ted’s Cruz’s Dad of being the man who possibly killed JFK. He accused Cruz of being a serial liar without citing a single lie, and called his wife ugly. This Trump guy is an absolute nut… I think if he thought Ted had a handicap with his arms he would have came out and said it. Don’t you? Or do you think killing JFK was the threshold?

“I’ll say he killed JFK, but arm problems—nooooo way too personal.” 

If you’re intellectually honest, you’ll see that Trump did not tease Kovaleski for being disabled. I implore you to look at the footage for yourself. 

As you can see I’m not a big fan. But let us not get caught in disparaging our own credibility by calling him things that he isn’t…especially when there are so many things that he is. The voice from “the boy who cried bigot” fell on deaf ears when it came time to call the President a person with deep moral flaws.  

Finally, for those who aren’t convinced and think Trump still may have derided the reporter for his disability. Let us at least agree that there is some grey area. If our justice system thrives on ‘innocent until proven guilty’ and ‘guilt must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt’ this instance of mockery is by no means a surety. But had Trump done something worse, more convincing, say, I don’t know, something concrete… where he said specifically what he was thinking and made his joke verbally, not physically. Then would we agree that he was wrong? Of course! And I just so happen to have one of those quotes… from the Jay Leno Show of all places.

Trump, while talking about his bowling game, (he is a golfer at heart right) compares himself LITERALLY to those who are handicapped. He says it’s like the SPECIAL OLYMPICS… laughter breaks out… Jay Leno starts laughing… Except there’s one reason that nobody is offended. The man who was talking about his bowling game wasn’t Trump. I must have made a mistake… It was President Barack Obama….

That’s right Barack Obama, on national TV, humiliated the Special Olympics.

Nope—no outrage. Did Meryl say a peep? Of course not. Did Jay Leno get in trouble for laughing? Was there a story written?      None of it. I’m confident you hadn’t even heard about it. But go forth, look it up! And yet, some who are reading this have spent the last several days complaining about Trump? Dude, you may want to rethink some of your assumptions.

Side Note: The Washington Post, predictably published a story this week titled:

Meryl Streep was right. Donald Trump did mock a disabled reporter.

Un-believable. Don’t be a victim to stupidity.

Keep it Real.

Today’s Quote

“The minimum wage has to go up. People are — at least $10, but it has to go up. But I think that states — federal — I think that states should really call the shot. As an example, I live in New York. It’s very expensive in New York. You can’t buy a hot dog for the money you’re talking about. You go to other states and it’s not expensive at all. Now what it does is puts New York at a disadvantage if the minimum wage is up, companies move out and things, bad things happen. At the same time, people have to be taken care of. But what I’m really going to do on the minimum wage — but it has to go up.. .. So I would like to raise it to at least $10.”      – Donald Trump on the minimum wage – before changing his stance on the issue

Nov. 8, 2016

Dear Thinkers,

Two distinct choices. Vastly differing views for America. We made it to the infamous election day—finally. The die has been cast…or more accurately, the ballots. But are these two separate choices, or does a web of obscurity lie beneath both candidate A & B? If we remove our beer-goggles and take a sobering departure from the relentless news cycle, pop-culture, pundits, analysts, and comedians, this web connecting the two may not be as buried as one might expect. 

Last week I was asked by a College Professor, “Why is this election so ideological?” I laughed. Ideological? How in the world might someone as well educated as she craft such a distorted outlook? In reality, Ideology and Political philosophy are both the farthest thing from this campaign. That said, I write you NOT to influence your vote, I have deliberately avoided such an act as we truly have no good options this (general) election cycle. But now, as the smoke rises, and as most of us have cashed in our last tokens, my wish is that we can have a moment of impartiality recognizing the sham that some of us have bought into with these two candidates. images-1

Every day, while contributing to a national radio show, I speak with dozens of individuals across the country who are adamant about their ONE candidate. These kind citizens are strapped in for the ride, no matter the outcome. And after awhile, it becomes apparent that there is absolutely nothing that could shake their loyalty to that one savior in which they have placed (or misplaced) their faith. Before long, that mere mortal has been elevated upon a throne where no wrong can be done. An obvious illustration of such, is when Donald Trump bragged back in Iowa,

“I could stand in the middle of 5th Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn’t lose voters,”

Or when Hillary Clinton laughs off questions regarding a Criminal FBI investigation adding,

“I think people a long time ago made up their minds about the emails.”

Can you and I, the American people, not honestly see a developing problem? Many of us shall be prone to justification of these remarks as we shout, “Trump was only joking about committing felonies, Hillary has actually committed them,” meanwhile being met with the response of “I’m sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails”, and “yeah but Trump is a racist, I’d rather have her than a racist”. And ironically, our irrational defense of the indefensible is unequivocally proving their claims to be valid.unknown-2

Only with this mentality can you manufacture such an outlook where Hillary Clinton is the Devil and Donald Trump God reincarnate, come to ride in on a white horse to take us to the promise land—better yet, come to make that promise land great again. Or the contradistinctive view: Trump is Hitler and Clinton a Victimized woman innocent of wrongdoing. The current President has kindled the flames of that narrative by questioning opponents to Clinton as possible sexists (interesting he didn’t pose such questions to himself when unmercifully attacking her in the Primary before ’08) Yet, when clearheaded, we must realize that Clinton nor Trump—both discernibly flawed—are unworthy of sub-human demonization. Before we try to uncover the absurdities on both sides of that coin (and it burdens me to imagine that one of these two might actually be on that coin someday) we must take a quick pitstop here in the town of ‘Reasonville’ before fully departing our last exit.


THOUGH MANY OF US have gotten into arguments, blood has boiled, and the media features infinite debate, we are forgetting one important principle: These candidates are NOT ALL THAT DIFFERENT. In appearance? Yes. Most certainly, one is red, and one is white (how chromatically American of them). Yes, one speaks with the vocabulary of a 3rd grader (I apologize in advance if I’ve offended the intellectual capacity of any 3rd graders) and the other a brilliant scholarly-type. But politically, when we boil it down, do tell me where the difference lies? 

Many mischaracterize Trump as being a staunch Conservative, due to his loud demeanor and that he “comes off passionate and angry”. For those of us who haven’t been coerced into thinking that personality traits are what makes a person Conservative, we notice that after listening to his content, Trump is a relative centrist. Relative to what you may ask? Well relative to Hillary Clinton herself.unknown-3

Here is where things get awkward. “Christian, he’s a Radical, he’s Hitler, he’s a populist, he’s a racist, you can’t be telling me that he is comparable to Hillary Clinton…She’s an honorable Progressive! I’ve been sharing facebook articles about Hillary, and speaking out against Trump and gonig door to door, and I’m with Her, and you can’t be serious!”  Or vise-versa “Lock her up, are you kidding me! Trump is the only one who can fix Washington, I don’t care about his offensive nature, everyone needs to stop getting offended, he’s the answer, He will prosecute Hillary and shake up the system” But you have not misunderstood me. That is exactly what I am saying. They are the same, and matter of fact, he is much farther Left on certain issues than even Hillary. But if you don’t believe me, let’s go down the list just for fun.

The Border

“The worst of them are coming” 

The bedrock of Trump’s Presidential run has been his unwavering  “Hard on the Border” stance. Is that really his outlook? Likewise, Clinton has said that we should do something to secure the border, but also, while speaking privately describing that she is for an open border state. Trump on the other hand, in 2012 PROMOTED LEFTIST IMMIGRATION REFORM: “The Republicans ought to take the lead. They have to get smart. They cannot have what happened to them with immigration and other issues sabotage their elections… immigration is very important and the Republicans have to get involved. Look, they’re never gonna win another election unless they do something. So the Republicans have to get smart, and in my opinion take the lead on immigration and lots of other things.”unknown

What? I thought he wanted to deport everyone? I thought he wanted to build a wall? Immigration Reform? This should be obvious by the way he has backed away form his earlier promises about building a wall and deporting millions… But wasn’t it Hillary who criticized his policy as being racist? Yet, back in the old days Hillary and Bill both told us that we HAVE TO HAVE A SECURE BORDER and that it was about the rule of law… If you don’t believe me please, please, look it up… oh my how things have changed.


“I’m never eating an oreo again”

Here, on this issue, you will have to go all the way back to Eugene Debbs to find a candidate as Radical as Trump on trade. Astonishingly, Debbs (1920 was his last Presidential Run) ran not on the ticket of the Republicans, not for the TEA PARTY, but for the Socialist Party of America. Yes! You read that right, even Bernie Sanders is Envious of Trump’s trade policy! It is that Radical. Donald Trump’s Protectionism and Tariffs and “I’m never eating an Oreo again or driving a Ford until they come back to America” policy is so far Left that Hillary couldn’t touch it if she tried. In the Primary when Bernie Sanders was talking about a similar policy (keep in mind that is more conservative than Trump’s), Hillary disagreed and wanted nothing to do with it. This is the quintessential example of a non-ideological and abnormal election. Trump’s trade policy defies the rules of economics and does so in the name of a long sought Socialist day-dream that solidifies the lines between he and Clinton as arbitrarily blurred. images-3


“We have to go further” v. “repeal and replace”

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton both believe in a single payer health care system. Matter of fact, Trump has admitted this, Clinton has been less direct. But when Clinton espouses that we have not gone far enough with the Affordable Care Act, it is fairly obvious that she means single payer. Trump on the other hand, just came right out and said it OF ALL PLACES, IN A REPUBLICAN DEBATE. There is little to no contrast on this matter. It appears that Trump is farther Left than Clinton on this issue. 

The Debt

Neither candidate has proposed the promotion of austerity. Actually, both candidates have advocated more spending. Projections show that Trump’s spending plan would increase the debt more than Clintons. If “investing in ourself” (whatever the hell that means) is a Leftist principle, Trump takes the cake on this issue as the Leftist frontrunner…Once again boggling my mind that Leftists have the nerve to call him an evil Conservative, and how those on the right have the audacity to point the finger at Clinton while wearing their “Make America Great Again Hats”. Neither position is Conservative by any means. Neither candidate is true to their ‘so called political ideology’. 


“Trumped up Trickle Down Economics”

Trump’s tax plan includes taxing the rich at a much higher rate than the lower brackets. Is this a Conservative principle? Clearly not. Clinton does win the Progressive Contest on this issue as her radical tax plan is hard to compete with, but anyone who deems Trump an Ideological Conservative on this issue is kidding themselves. 


“I will repeal Roe v. Wade”

Trump used to be an outspoken proponent of abortion. Are we supposed to believe that he suddenly saw the light on this issue right before he decided to run as a Republican? It is possible, but it is also possible that this could be another version of political expediency like his evolving stance on the Iraq War, Gun Control, or many others. His daughters are Blue-blooded Liberals…will they allow their Dad to be the one to appoint the justice to repeal this landmark decision? Clinton’s stance is clear on this issue, but Trump has proven that he is by no means locked in on this view. 


“are we going to really trust trump with his hand on the nuclear button”

Trump the war-monger! I will even go so far as to say that I don’t feel comfortable one bit with this man’s ego in control of such a power, but I find it hard stomaching the Hillary supporters who relay such concerns without stopping to take stock of their own candidate’s foreign policy blunders. If one is to be intellectually honest—which we have noted is nearly impossible in this age—the anti-war Hillary supporter will pull the rod out of their own eye (or more likely rip the bumper sticker off their prius) and think about the fact that in just 4 years as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton advocated the bombing of more nations in her tenure than that evil, war-monger, George Bush. Meddling in foreign affairs? Her hands are blood-red with guilt on that front: The toppling of Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, and Libya does anyone remember Benghazi?. Yes Benghazi, where we were running guns through the ambassador Christopher Stevens who was killed without Hillary lifting a finger to help. And I’ll save my breath about the email Hillary sent to Chelsea that night about the truth of the matter and the cover-up, but what does apply to foreign policy is: where were we running those guns? Answer: To the Syrian rebels, who at the time had a cute little harmless name called the Islamic State in Syria…Today known as ISIS. But you wouldn’t know that if you were busy watching the Daily show would you? You wouldn’t know that if you weren’t seeking truth and you were just reinforcing your own dogmatic opinion sharing Facebook posts about how Trump is Hitler (and I’m not saying that he isn’t) but can we stop the hypocrisy? If we dare walk further down that dark alley of sincere self-incrimination, then the Hillary supporter may remember when she voted, as a Senator, for the Iraq war…which that same supporter has likely dismissed as an act of American Imperialism or better yet a crime against humanity. Some may even have called George Bush a WAR CRIMINAL. How could Hillary enable, let alone condone such behavior? Then there’s Russia: Here lies, in my humble opinion, the most catastrophic part of the Hillary Clinton foreign policy: Her utter determination to challenge Russia militarily. Hillary has pledged to enforce a “no fly zone” over Syria. Considering the fact that Russia is an ally to Bashar al-Assad (Syria’s Dick-Head Leader) and is operating in the region under his permission, any challenge to that airspace will be met with as an act of war. On top of this, Clinton wants to cut back on our military. Is this a good premise? Whether it is or isn’t, it certainly is not good strategy to provoke agression and warfare without a ready military. “Don’t be silly Christian, we have a huge military” – True – But under her command she has engineered the disarmament of our military returning us to pre-WWII levels. To enforce a “no fly zone” one would have to ENFORCE it—hence the word. Without the capability to do so, any honest person would have to interpret this policy as blatantly irresponsible at worst, and from a best perspective as a campaign lie to get elected and that she has no desire to see through. I am hoping for the second.

Remember, we have established that I am terrified of a Trump presidency (as we do not know what to expect except his incapable, boisterous, uninformed, demeanor). But unlucky for Hillary and fortunately for us, we can go off of her record to try and understand her foreign policy. Time and time again she and her campaign have echoed the fact that we do not want nuclear weapons in the yes, small hands of Donald Trump, but I hate to say it, but I’d rather he have them than our enemies… like North Korea!

Under Bill Clinton, North Korea acquired Nuclear Weapons due to the arrogance of our government. Clinton lead negotiatory talks with the dictatorship ensuring us that such a policy would keep nuclear weapons out of the hands of North Korea. As you and I know today, that did not work.unknown-4 And this would be easy to chalk up as Bill’s mistake…why should Hillary be punished for the wrongdoings of her husband? And that is a rational view, except for the fact that Bill and Hillary ran as ‘two presidents for the price of one’.  Furthermore, Hillary Clinton has taken partial credit for Bill’s economic achievements, does she not deserve any for his faults on foreign relations. But if you think that’s a stretch, then I implore you to examine the details of the Iran Nuclear Deal that Hillary helped engineer. Yes, she was not in office for the Deal’s finality, but she helped set the table for it. Also, she and her VP nominee have championed the deal as disarming Iran’s nuclear program “without firing a shot”. 

Interesting. Now I know we’re all capable of compare and contrast, so I want you to get out your Venn Diagram, and compare the Iran Nuclear Deal to the ’94 deal with North Korea. In both cases we paid them money (billions of dollars) for no apparent reason, in both cases we have enabled nuclear energy to persist with no apparent checks in place for us to seriously inspect the facilities for Weapons-Grade enrichment, and in both cases we made it possible for psychopaths to pursue the earth-ending weapons at the push of a button… No the Iranians and North Koreans are reasonable people… Are they? Are people who say they want to “Wipe Israel off the face of the map”, or people who want to turn Japan and South Korea into a “Sea of fire”. Suddenly the idea of giving Nuclear weapons to Donald Trump doesn’t seem all that crazy. But the Clinton supporter has surely criticized Trump for entertaining the idea of giving nuclear weapons to Japan, and they surely slammed him when he said he would consider supplying Saudi Arabia (both of which are our allies after all), but do you think they once stopped and thought about the pathway which Clinton has pursued, directly or indirectly—they have the same effect—which has supplied not only our enemies, but some of the deepest psychopaths on earth with nuclear weapons?

Side note: I should honestly write an article just on that issue someday and how Carter supplied Pakistan with nukes.

Hillary has also overseen the deaths of several Americans through drone-strikes…without TRIAL. Now wasn’t it the Left who was standing in opposition to George Bush, (on grounds of violation of due process) when he wanted to give Terrorists (caught overseas as enemy combatants) a military trial rather than a civilian trial? I’m no fan of George W, but is it not obvious that a military trial is greater than or equal to “unexpected decimation from above?”

images-2Well you may say, “Christian, the violation of Habeus Corpus should never be “up for grabs”, and since I’m consistent, I 100% agree with you. And you may follow that up with, “Well George Bush did it”, or “Trump supported the Iraq war before he publically decided to turn against it”. And that’s where I put my foot down. This is exactly my point. Violations are not justified based on others’ wrongdoing. “Well he did it too!” is not a credible defense. My Mom always asked me, “if your friends jumped off a cliff, would you?” But more to the point, you are correct, Trump, like Clinton both were for the Iraq war, then turned against it when it became politically expedient. A calculated political move for both of them, which brings me back to my point: This election is the absence of Ideological, it is about self-interest. And we have two candidates, that are void of principles and what’s worse, they actually worked together in the past.

Has anyone thought about any of this stuff? With the military, Hillary is a certifiable HAWK. Do you wonder why the Bushes are supporting her in this election!?




When speaking yesterday about the chance of a Clinton win, well acclaimed Conservative Ann Coulter conveyed, “I just feel like it’s a slow motion airline crash”. Coulter, a text-book example of someone who has sacrificed and sold-out her principles in this election has now adopted a stance that nothing else unknown-1matters besides securing the border. During the Primary, she has lashed out at other Conservatives for not getting on board with Trump for prioritizing the concerns about abortion above Trump’s hard stance on the border. But Ann, other things do matter—the border does too! But are we ready to throw the baby out with the bath water just to have a pretty little wall…I know with a big beautiful door in the middle, I haven’t forgotten. 

Ann like many people I have encountered in this election have lost sight of the big picture. This goes without even mentioning Trump’s inconsistent political alignment! If it is already a slow airplane crash, what will our nation stand upon when Trump adds frivolously to the debt? Just something to think about…

A final note: Does anyone think it a bit ironic that Trump used to support Hillary? Financially. Publicly. He praised her work as the Secretary of State saying she could not have done a better job… What?! 

images-4Also, If Trump is such a racist what was Hillary doing at his wedding? What was she doing taking money from him? And what was Bill Clinton doing on the phone telling Trump he should run right before the election? The Trump kids are friends with Chelsea. Trump and Clinton have both changed positions on gay marriage, on assault weapons, on the economy, religion, birth control, and many other issues. Though I have not hilighted their differences—and I admit there are some—I also have not even begun to list a full report of their intersecting inconsistencies. I can offer no explanation, but I will advise: Now that this agonizing election is through, let’s take a stride toward intellectual honesty, admitting when our side is conflicting, erratic, or at fault. And more importantly, be cautious of where you choose to throw mud, if you aren’t careful, you may find that it winds up on your own carpet. 



Keep it Real.

Dear Thinkers,

Black Quarterbacks matter. Yeah let’s go there.


By now you may know this past weekend 49’ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick refused to stand during the National Anthem at the NFL Preseason game against the Green Bay Packers. Everyone has since foisted their bountiful opinions in the ensuing days. What you may not know is that Kaepernick doubled down on Thursday night in San Diego. This time opting to kneel during the Anthem. With this second act of protest, he was able to enlist a fellow teammate to his cause. On this evening, it just so happened to be the Chargers’ annual Military Appreciation salute game. Kaepernick’s choice to kneel predictably wrought him a roar of “Boos” from the disfavoring crowd.Unknown


The bi-racial Quarterback explained his reason for the protest, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color… To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.” (nfl.com)

Before we delve any deeper and examine the ramifications or Politics of this gesture—and it is afterall a political gesture—I’d like to convey that I admire Kaepernick’s unwavering resolve to take a stand for something he believes in. Aside from the individual backlash he has received from fans, this statement assuredly WILL NOT help in the area of endorsements. (On a side note: Neither will his interception prone decision making) Endorsements, need I remind you, are at the end of the day, revenue dollars. 

1996Clearly, he feels truly compelled about this cause in order to take such a stand. On this, props to him.

That said, I’m not sure I see how this issue is at all difficult to discuss. Abortion? See that’s a tough issue. Abortion is hard to address because it contains a REAL disagreement within our society. The legality of abortion features two sides of the debate: a winner and a loser. Both sides cannot be satisfied by convening on a middle ground. But Race, that is a non-issue. And ironically, that in itself is the controversy within the ‘Race Dialogue’. The modern Racial dispute emanates from the very disagreement that there is (or is not) innate racism within our society.

This is why I think it inexcusable—better yet detestable—that race relations have derailed to the wasteland in which they now reside. We all want the same outcome, we all have the same philosophy, the same end game, and yes (in the 21st Century) even the same starting point. We all want to be treated equally. And nobody thinks that Police should have the power to kill innocent people. That would be absurd. So what has happened? What has allowed such a divide in a society that acknowledges from square one that all men are created equal?


The answer: We have been mislead. Mislead by quarterbacks who spout off without knowing what the hell they are talking about, but more importantly, we have been deceived by our own elected leadership. These are the individuals who are truly accountable. For instance, the President of the United States and his puppet-like surrogates.

Now, I couldn’t take issue enough with the foolish public statement that Colin Kaepernick has issued. It is unfounded, and ignorant. There are racists, but inherent racism throughout American society? What a straw man. If you keep reading we shall dispel that fallacy. Also, I will go through the specifics of why Colin is wrong in just a minute, but humor me for a second….Keep in mind Kaepernick’s job is to play football, he has a right to his opinions and as far as I’m concerned, I don’t care if he kneels, or sits, or does pilates while the national anthem is playing (maybe it will help his football). However, should this not be expected from someone who gets paid to study the pre-snap reads of “in-out and mix” coverages and how the Safety creeping up a yard and a half before the play is a “key” that there is no longer a Cover-2 Defensive Scheme in place? (If I lost you there that’s sort of my point, he’s a football player for crying out loud not a professor …and judging by his on-field play, Kap has some sort of handicap in even understanding this). But when someone who is a Constitutional scholar (like the President of the United States) goes on National Television and says, “The cops acted stupidly”, before hearing the details of a case… That is someone, I contend, that should be held accountable for their misguided remarks.


After spraying his opinion all over the nation like an unregulated pesticide he himself would deem unsafe, The President turned out to be completely wrong. (Not once, instead every single time) Yet, that here is not the issue. I could care less what the President’s betting record is. Whereas the issue here is that Constitutional Scholar Obama, the very man who boasts, “I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president [George W. Bush] I actually respect the Constitution.” forgot the basis of Natural Law: Innocent Until Proven Guilty.      Did that not cross his mind?

kap-1This guy used to teach the Constitution to college students! I can only imagine how useless his poor pupils must feel having skipped over the lesson of Habeas Corpus which goes back thousands of years. Did Barack Obama fail to read The Writs of Assistance by James Otis, even the 4th Amendment? He swore to protect the Constitution, did he not read it? Or did he skip over that one? I will resist the urge to digress, but we have verified that he already glazed over the second. 

You see, justice doesn’t fit his narrative. That is how the Democratic party gets votes. If you’re going to tell me that I’m wrong, or that I’m racist, or that I don’t understand because I’m white, I warn you because you have also just labeled the Black members of the jury who acquitted the police in this case “wrong, racist and white”. I’m not quite sure if that is politically correct.

And if the President demonstrated that he drew his verdict before hearing the evidence, wouldn’t that make you question all of his pre-drawn verdicts? When drawing conclusions we are called to look at evidence, not skin color!    “Oh but you haven’t seen the other cases, Christian!”   Okay, that’s fine, If the evidence is so obviously against the police officer let’s let him go to trial and let’s throw the book at him. Which is what is happening in the case of the cop who shot the man in the back that everyone likes to cite as evidence of “injustice”. He is unequivocally being tried for MURDER. Get your facts straight. gettyimages-596018938

Why do we need to play judge jury and executioner? This is how government worked in the day of kings. Now can you see how innocent people were so often executed? If Obama were king, that officer would be dead….Scary…Now you see the basis of the Jury Trial. Furthermore, in repeaditedly jumping to conclusions, the Pres. happens to be in contradiction of one of his own golden rules. In the past the President has noted that when you’re a President you cannot have “a tendency to shoot first and aim later.” Did we forget that lesson?

The President isn’t the only one responsible for this irresponsibility . His mouthpieces on the Left and in the media have contributed to the lawlessness. And with every unfounded statement, race relations get worse. Notice how he never reappears on Television stating that he was mistaken. Correcting the record… This is not leadership. I guess it should come as no shock from someone who bases his leadership skills on the principle of “leading from behind”. Whereas he knows that people will then view this as a hint that he disagrees with the verdict. (I don’t think that is the case) But that is how his constituents read into it. They see it as, “The Justice System is out to get blacks!” Meanwhile, we forget that it is he and Loretta Lynch who are the very ones who run the Justice Department–the people we’re calling racist toward blacks are black!



Keep in mind, before 2008, there was a study done which found that this generation–my generation–was the first truly color blind generation in the History of the United States…Which should not come as a shocker. The only racism I know is how I’m supposed to feel guilty about saying that racism is not a serious problem in the United States. So am I supposed to shy away from the truth for fear of being called a racist? Am I missing the hidden brilliance of this reasoning? Maybe we should stop identifying with the title Blacks, Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans, and so on (Notice I said Identify, not rid ourselves of the word)… Maybe we should grow-up and stop identifying with our race like we’re some kind of team we need to root for like the 49’ers. It’s silly. I’m from LA. I just saw a sign that said Vote Latino. What does that even mean? Is there one political agenda that benefits all Latinos like a big blanket. Of course not! The assumption that such a policy exists is in itself racism. Assuming that all people of one race are exactly the same is a dangerous broad brush approach we must avoid. Can you say Stereotyping anyone?

When I see a story about a white man getting shot by a black person, I don’t root for the white guy to be innocent! I root for justice to be served, and for the person at fault, whether he be the white or the black to be punished to the full extent of the law. This is no earth-shattering view I pat myself on the back for holding—Everyone feels this way! But we have been trained not to say it like it is. We have been trained to feel offended when people say that BLANK percent of blacks end up in jail, or unemployed, or that only BLANK percent of the NBA is white… Give me a break. Did any of you root harder for team USA when the White athletes were competing? I bet you couldn’t give a damn (let alone notice) what color their skin was. If that doesn’t signify the E Pluribus Unum (of many one) principle of America, the ONE NATION under God slogan, and the pride you felt for the black white yellow red pink purple athlete, then I don’t know what does better than that. You see, this construes the absurdity of the divisiveness the Left and the media want you to feel. They want you to feel uncomfortable in addressing the race issue.



We faction ourselves. We identify with our ‘Racial’ teams and we throw dirt at eachother. “We say things like “Us whites, or we Latinos,” it’s weird. I have way more in common with my fellow black or latino or asian American that loves freedom than my white neighbor who tramples private property rights and advocates oppression. (Yeah in case you haven’t learned by now, I’m white. Do I write like a white person?    Wait don’t answer that.)

Christian, you don’t know what you’re talking about though. You weren’t around for segregation and slavery and so on….

Buddy.. Neither were you, neither were your friends and neither was Colin Kaepernick. I have news for you: Get over it and get on board the love train. It’s 2016. I feel for you if you’ve ever experienced any form of racism, but I had nothing to do with that. Stop blaming me!

This blanket implicative blaming that the Left participates in is equivalent to the ignorant principle that “all blacks are inferior”, Both are categorically wrong. Just as it is false that ‘blacks are not humans’ is misfounded, it is equally bizarre in stating that white people living in 2016 are responsible for slavery in 1850. That belief though, I remind you, is the very axiom the Democratic Party was founded on.

It is estimated that less than 5% of white people living in America today have any genetic connection whatsoever to Slavery. (Meaning your ancestors participated in the slave trade in any form) That’s like blaming a German living in America for the Holocaust. The Left wants to play the ethnicity game, and then blatantly ignore it when it’s convenient. White = privilage. White = racist. Dude, my ancestors didn’t even own slaves in America! They were probably in Ireland growing potatoes. Think of how wrong this is, you’re trying to teach me to be raicist…. It aint workin, bruhh. Stop Trying. 5 percent! 8 % of the population thinks Elvis is still alive! (BoldProgressives.org – not exactly a Right-leaning site).

Screen Shot 2016-09-02 at 1.30.18 PM


People try and tell us that Systemic Racism still exists. The President says we have “racism in our DNA”. If that were the case, (which is completely anti-scientific, Racism is not a genetic trait) there are still only 5 percent of us who have it in our DNA. And people like the President and Colin Kaepernick are half white. What has vaccinated them from the Racist Virus that the rest of us have apparently caught? Do share your secret Colin.

The Nation is so racist that half of the country voted for the President. Wouldn’t that mean at least half of the country isn’t racist Barack? Then you did a God-Awful job, and we elected you again. How again is that racist?

Not to mention many said that they voted for you because you were black (Even white people acknowledged this!). If you ask me you’re right Mr. Prez, many people voted for you not based on anything except that you were black. That is racism, it’s pro-black racism and you didn’t throw a challenge flag when the rules were working in your favor…no no no, you marched on down the field with it like you were Colin Kaepernick before he started whining. You got votes just for being black! Not judging your character… not your background, not your record, and especially not your policies! Aside from the fact that I think it weird—and ultimately a bad strategy—to vote for someone based on skin color (just look at what happened) I do pause to admire the distance of which we (as a nation) have come. For goodness-sake, I wish we could have another black President! Not because he’s black, but because he’s a good decent person who has a battle-tested plan for America! Ben Carson anyone? Nope, the Left HATES him.



But we do have to acknowledge the fact that there are racists out there. Not many though. Not enough to even earn recognition. Some hate whites, some hate blacks, some hate asians, some hate native americans, some hate everyone…and some idiots—as we covered earlier—believe Elvis is alive. 8 percent of 320 million is more than just a few people. For the record though, you would never say America has a “believing in Elvis” problem. Why then do we get away with saying America is inherently racist? Bullshit. America is not racist.


And unlike the Left, I’ll be the first one to say that we should hold police to a higher standard. So if the police act inapproprately, let’s lock them up forever. Let’s bring back the firing squad, because I agree, they took an oath to protect us. They should not use that power we have lent them to opress us, the people. That defeats the purpose of law enforcement. So not all cops are bad. But they are people, I will level with you there… And that is why the solution is giving the rights to the people. They are human beings afterall.


Finally, let’s talk Kaepernick. You’ll be surprised to know that I’m to some extent a Kaepernick fan. NO I DON’T HAVE A POSTER OF HIM IN MY ROOM. But I like watching him play. I have always rooted for his success and still do, though he hasn’t had much of it lately on and off the field (his Thursday night stats show some hope).


Here’s why Colin is absolutely wrong:EOe9b3GYNsGGbKMStraLpSZ51CeA52pLWTbOxqYM7MasQm8mRXzsxgYTTHqEQjqBC


He describes blacks as oppressed. Yet somehow he managed to land a $100m deal  for playing football. He has thousands of fans who show up at games every weekend to root for him that are of all races. Moses didn’t ask Pharaoh to free the Israelites while he was being carried around as a prince. He gave that up and took action!

His jersey happens to be one of the top-selling jerseys in the nation (not Moses, Kap). You can find many of these people, many of them white, wearing his jersey in respect and admiration for their hero on any given Sunday. We had better give them some lessons in racism because at the apex of slavery in the south, you didn’t exactly find slave jerseys last time I checked. Furthermore, he goes out and performs for these people every week. According to his own logic, he would have to acknowledge that many of the people he is offering his entertainment to would undoubtedly have to be racists…if you are to take him at his word that he believes racism is an epidemic in America. Is it an epidemic that his fans are immune to?

When talking about Police Officers getting paid leave for killing people, he is either ill informed or dishonest. In reality, an officer who shoots a suspect is mandated paid leave so that they can be tried in order to get to the bottom of the case. I don’t blame Kaepernick on this one, because it seems this ignorant outlook could earn you an A in Professor Obama’s Constitutional Law class at the University of Chicago. I’m sure the standards for star Quarterbacks from University of Nevada, Reno are similarly low.


Kaepernick said, “It takes more training to become a cosmetologist than a police officer,” Which may well be true, but since Colin hasn’t taken the Orange County Police Department’s offer to come down and witness a training session and decide for himself, I guess we will never know the answer to that statement. You see Colin has the time to state his opinions, but he just doesn’t have the time to research them beforehand. Do you check what you’re about to drink before you drink it?

A reporter asked Colin this week what would need to change to make him happy? He responded, “It’s tough to lock down one specific thing that needs to change”, Meaning, I don’t have anything in mind, I just drank the clear liquid. I didn’t smell it beforehand to make sure it wasn’t Vodka. Judging by his actions, I wouldn’t be surprised if he had gulped a bit too much. 

After talking about how black people were getting murdered relentlessly, he contradicted his own logic by saying, “that’s not right, that’s not right by anyone’s standards”,



If it’s not right by anyone’s standards, is everyone truly racist? “Christian he didn’t say that” Okay but he’s saying that Blacks are oppressed. If that is “not right by anyone’s standards”, where the heck do you get off making such a claim. WHO IS THE OPPRESSOR? If he can reason with the public with an emotional arguement, then the public must not be the ones opressing black people. Who is? 

I think I’ve spent too much time reading into the illogical, twisted, stupidity here. I could have saved all of us time and warned you that the reasoning is that there is no reasoning. But you may not have believed there was such little depth. You only become more confused when trying to find out what he really thinks. And for this reason you know that Kaepernick’s claims are at the end of the day self-aggrandizing, self-self serving, and purely political.

But the Left loves to defend him. He’s a football player and a great athlete. Since when do we hold what they have to say on politics in such high regard?

The answer: We do when it is benificial. Because just as the Left claims he is an expert on race, they have conveniently ignored his claims on Hillary Clinton. Colin added, “You have Hillary who has called black teens or black kids ‘super predators,’ ” he went on, “We have a presidential candidate who has deleted emails and done things illegally and is a presidential candidate. That doesn’t make sense to me because if that was any other person you’d be in prison. So, what is this country really standing for?”

He also went off on Trump which is unsurprising, but for some reason the Left who deemed Kaepernick the instant Political-Expert has decided that in this area—the area of jailing Hillary Clinton—he could not be any more mistaken. Take it or leave it people, he is either brilliant, or he’s not. You can’t pick and choose when it’s convenient.

All in all, there is no place on planet earth that has allowed Black people to be more affluent than the United States. That is the beauty of Conservative Values. When they are applied, not only do the people who advocate them benefit, even the spoiled, misguided, brats who try to undermine them benefit greatly…yep even like Colin Kaepernick. 

I’ll let Jerry Rice take us home, “All lives matter. So much going on in this world today. Can we all just get along! Colin, I respect your stance but don’t disrespect the Flag,” 

Thanks Jerry

Dear Thinkers,


DOWN WITH THE U.S.A. If you look closely that’s what the heading image depicts. A bleeding American Flag with that provocative, catchy, and so-often-heard expression written distinctly across. I found this image while watching the news. In the broadcast, the reporter covered the internal excitement behind the lifted sanctions in Iran, yet as he was talking, I couldn’t help but zoom in—and to my fascination—discover this hateful slogan which decorated a nearby building. The reporter, as well as the camera crew, didn’t stop and mention the blatantly hostile message as they simply grazed by…(which seems odd considering they were broadcasting these images back to, yes, the U.S.A. itself) This absence of reaction lead me to wonder if this sort of visual was a common observance in the city of Tehran.

At any rate, the White House this week relayed that “We don’t know the intentions of Iran” in reference to the shocking Naval incidents. I’ll let you decide whether or not the White House is being genuine. 


Leading up to this article, I had planned all along to cover the intellectual trainwreck others refer to as Donald Trump. I still intend to do so, especially in wake of our cuddly job interview we recently conducted with Ol’ Grandma Hillary. (If you missed it here you go: http://www.realtimesblog.com/?p=799) Yet, in the midst of my judicious plans, the Obama administration decided to get caught sneaking

ap_16211161553925-e1469806877309 ransom money to Iran in the middle of the night. And truthfully, this should come as no surprise from an administration desperate to make a deal to restore their image. After receiving minimal coverage, the story has re-emerged after a USS Destroyer was intercepted and harassed this week by multiple Iranian vessels in the Strait of Hormuz. This bizarre incident was then to be outdone THE NEXT DAY when a separate United States Ship was harassed for the second day in a row by the Iranian Guard Corps. The incident escalated and the US Navy was forced to deploy several warning shots. Unfortunately at home, America seems to be preoccupied with Donald Trump’s-Twitter Feed (DTF) instead of focusing on this escalating story. So as you may have guessed, here at the Real Times we are not DTF, (especially with Daddy Donald) so we’re going to proceed and cover something that is truly newsworthy and may directly affect the political power balance on the high seas for years to come. So thank you in advance for bypassing the bait of the unimportant news cycle and using your brain. And frankly, you should understand the deception that is taking place behind this story. I contend you will be livid beyond belief. 

In order to fully understand this story, it’s adamant that we turn back just one or two pages. As you may have guessed, Iranian-US relations did not just suddenly rust in the Strait of Hormuz. Nor is this the first sequence of Naval Confrontation with the Persian Nation. So I know it’s not Thursday, but if you’ll excuse me, let’s throw it all the way back to last summer where Jurassic World dominated the box office, when you couldn’t drive a block without getting a headache from hearing Taylor Swift’s “Bad Blood”, and where Harabe the Gorilla entertained fantasies of the Tarzan story…meanwhile pausing to laugh from time to time about the fictitious plausibility of a human baby just “falling out of the sky” and into his furry lap. Oh! And how could we forget?! Most of all, President Obama sought to make the largest deal of his Presidency: The Iran Nuclear Deal. 

For those who haven’t, as of late, drafted a Nuclear non-proliferation treaty, let me explain the Iran Nuclear Deal from a rudimentary state. Inherently, the basis of a good deal would proceed with both sides present at the table getting SOMETHING in return for what they are offering to sacrifice‒much like trading baseball cards. Even a child can comprehend this principle. But as you shall see, when the rules of the trade are not properly agreed upon, “Trading-Cards” swiftly grows into a heated game of Battle-Ship. And that is what we witnessed this week. (Keep an eye on that word offering) Though, before you accuse me of being coarse in regard to “beating-up” on such a meager figure‒the most powerful man in the world‒allow me illustrate the situation. I sincerely hope the facts don’t offend anyone here.Persian-Gulf-missile


LAST YEAR Barack Obama and his team sat down at the table with a people who scoff at him, trample american flags, threaten our allies, and throw darts (or worse) at pictures of Obama himself. They proudly scream “death to America” in the streets. And they refer to us as ‘Big Satan’. “But Christian,” you say, “can’t we get past a bit of name calling in order to make a landmark deal”, and I most certainly agree. But what we cannot overlook is the sure fact that Iran is the largest state sponsor of terrorism in the world. Aside from the obvious, let’s take a look at why this is relevant. 

When the Administration made this deal last summer, the International Community unleashed more than $100B in assets frozen over seas! This money will surely end up in the hands of terrorists who will undoubtedly use it to inflict more brutality on the Western World. I hear some of you saying, “Oh you don’t know that!” “STOP Fearmongering and hyperbolizing in order to slam Obama!”

Ok fine. Don’t take my word for
it. Ask the idiot who made the deal.

In an interview with CNBC John Kerry (our Secretary of State) spouted off this fountain of retardation: “I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC (Iran Revolutionary Guard Corps) or other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,”Unknown-1Great. So why again did you make this deal then? A deal that allows them lots of money..to..give..to..TER-ROR-ISTS?….your words, not mine buddy. Good thing he had an encouraging response: (According to CNN)

“You know, to some degree, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that [funding terrorism] can be prevented,”

Wait, that was really bad…Go on John, I’m still waiting for some assurance here…

“If we catch them funding terrorism, they’re going to have a problem in the U.S. CUnknownongress and other people, obviously,” he said.

So there you have it. If the Iranian leadership (who are bad people), do bad things with their money, then we have no way of enforcing punishment. They’re like the Child who knows they can’t get spanked for stealing candy! So let’s examine how silly this slap on the hand really is.     Kerry: “They’re going to have a problem in Congress?” Dude, the Ayatollahs are not some sort of Health Care Bill. You can’t kill them in the Senate. Matter of fact, they could give a damn about what goes on in Congress, and ironically, so do you John. That’s why you violated Constitutional power and made this deal without consent from Congress. My friends at home, whether you like this deal or not, this was not within his power to even make the deal. According to the Heritage Foundation, the President is given authority to make treaties, to which the Senate is given the authority to advise and consent (Article 11, Section 2). As you can plainly see, the only person who has a problem with Congress is John Kerry and his Backup Dancer President Obama. I hear Malia dances pretty well too if you light up with her… 



Ever since I was young, Iran has been the focal point of international conflict. From threats to us and our allies, to their utter defiance of international law and human rights, they have been the thorn in the side of peaceful world relations for some time. Also, the Obama administration has been criticized vigorously on their incompetence in handling foreign affairs. Therefore, what better feat than settling such a controversy and leaving behind a legacy? Accomplishing the impossible would bring much needed redemption. And from a bird’s eye view, one must credit the Obama administration on negotiating ANY deal with such an unreasonable group such as the Ayatollahs. Assuming nobody zooms in and examines the deal, this is the legacy that Obama hopes to leave behind. 

Yet, after examination, one finds that the United States‒surprisingly‒did not get anything for this deal. Literally nothing. Security at least? NO. An ally in Iran? NO. Assurance that they would at least uphold their side of the bargain? NOT EVEN THAT! This deal is not even binding. Knowing this, by definition I’m not even accurate in calling this a deal. The word deal implies that we would have assurance that they would uphold their part otherwise the deal would be off! This was literally The Iran Nuclear Offering. (No this is not an opinion, Calm down, we will cover the details of how the agreement is non binding in a minute and you’ll understand. It will literally blow your mind) And since this agreement was done behind closed doors, we are still learning of the ongoing politically deficient spilled-mess that occurred as even more sludge keeps seeping under the threshold into plain sight. (Like the $1.7B in ransom money that was just leaked to the press which was originally denied as ransom money…until it was admitted). 

“Christian you’re just biased”, “Prove it”. Unknown-2

Well I’m glad you asked. Let’s talk specifics. That money that I told you about that was “un-frozen”, has caused lots of confusion. Contrary to what you may have been thinking, I was not referring to the sequel of a Disney movie. Instead, this points to the Sanctions that the United Nations have placed (in the past) on Iran. How does this work? In practice this forbids nations from doing business in a sense with Iran as well as keeps them from receiving money for the trade that they have already been allotted. Meaning the money was just “FROZEN” in limbo waiting to be released. Well that’s not fair, you may say… Why should they be bullied by the international community? And once again, I’m glad you asked because this is something we can all agree on:  Whether you be Conservative or Liberal, you and I can both agree that pushing Homosexuals off rooftops to their death, killing Christians, enslaving Women, funding Terrorism, and threatening to nuke other nations is not a good practice. And as of now, Iran has received countless human-rights violations for these unspeakable acts‒except the last: Nuclear destruction.

Why not Nuclear Destruction? Well up until now (August of 2016), Iran hasn’t had weaponized nuclear capability (though they have tried). This is why reasonable people (on the Right and the Left) don’t think we should make a “Nuclear Deal” with Iran. Matter of fact, the sanctions and the work of the international community over the past decade and a half have been to prevent Iran from attaining nuclear capability. It was working. These sanctions were crippling Iran’s economy. images

The Obama administration answers these claims with, “They just want to heat their homes” it’s unfair to them! 

Any honest person with their head more above water responds, No, stop lying. We already know they were trying to develop Nuclear Weapons. Hence the report from your own White House which noted:

“Before July, Iran had a large stockpile of enriched uranium and nearly 20,000 centrifuges, enough to create eight to 10 bombs, according to the White House. US experts estimated then that if Iran had decided to rush to make a bomb, it would take two to three months until it had enough 90%-enriched uranium to build a nuclear weapon – the so-called “break-out time”. (BBC). 

I think that lie speaks for itself. If Barack is thinking in terms of Nuclear Radiation, then yes. Perhaps the effects will radiate lots of heat, which will ultimately warm everyone’s home. How pleasant. 

As we venture toward our next layer of dishonesty, there are some obvious absurdities that we don’t even have the time to cover, though I’m confident you can connect the dots. So, aside from the fact that the Obama administration has waged a war—Literally—on our domestic nuclear program in the name of the environment, the fact that Iran is in the middle of the damn desert, N. Korea is a weeeeee bit further north on the map (requiring more heat for their homes) and NOBODY thought it okay to lend nuclear capabilities to N. Korea, AND the fact that throughout history, the practice of expecting A-Holes to be genuine and honest has landed us—Unsurprisingly—in the bowels of every single predicament, I still don’t think this deal is a good proposal. At this point we won’t even judge Iran based on their word (which I remind you isn’t binding), but before we get to the next part of The Iran Nuclear Offering, let me play a quick highlight-reel that is available for all to see in the Hall of Fame of A-Hole History. I think they’re still deciding on a location to place their gorgeous display, and if you ask me, that was the biggest mistake of the deal. Lobbyists for the Hall of Fame of A-Holes have been trying to set up shop in Tehran for years. John Kerry missed a one time opportunity.

The world gave Hitler an inch, and he didn’t take a mile, he almost took the entire world. In the name of fairness and blind stupidity President Carter allowed Pakistan to have nuclear weapons by accident. President Clinton allowed our good friends N. Korea to have nuclear weapons because he TRUSTED that they wouldn’t pursue weaponizing the Nuclear Technology. And would you believe it, each one of them came back boasting, like Neville Chamberlain to Hitler, “look we have peace in our time”. That’s why liberal foreign policy is not just moronic, it is dangerous. It was FDR who prior to WW II, reminded us that Hitler was a “reasonable guy”. And keep in mind FDR is idolizedadolf_hitler630_pxlwby the Left as the text-book President. But don’t you worry Thinkers, Barack is smart. He set this deal up on a ticking clock. And the time is set to expire just as he runs a little ways down the road and out of sight. I’m not kidding, the Iran Nuclear Deal is set up so that by the time they Weaponize their Nuclear Capabilities, he will be long gone from office… then, who knows… maybe Trump will have to deal with it… Doesn’t that just make you feel so secure.

Let us not deviate any further. 

Everyone has an opinion about this deal. And many who go on TV will tell you that I am wrong in calling this an “Offering”. But have they even read the deal? I think not. 

Riddle me this? Why does the beginning of the deal contradict everything that Iran has said publicly?Here is what it says in the Preamble: 

“Iran reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any nuclear weapons”. (Preamble, Section iii)

Okay so we’ve established that we (for some reason) don’t care that the money is going to fund terrorism. I mean, I hope you and I care, because I’m not too fond of Terrorists in my backyard using my own money to kill me, and John Kerry has shown that he truly is Hillary’s Relief Pitcher by some of the statements we covered already(remember Hillary used to hold his position). But we are forgetting that the whole reason there needed to be a deal in the first place is because Iran said they wanted NUKES. They then acted on their claims (meanwhile threatening us and our allies) and stockpiled Uranium. If that be the case, don’t you think we should at least be able to inspect their facilities? Well yes, we can, but we can’t do so without getting permission from their ally Russia. Our Enemy! And incase you weren’t aware, not only does Russia love the idea of degrading American power globally (because that helps them), but furthermore, they have a specified interest in keeping the United States out of the Strait of Hormuz. 

We have yet to mention that the Iranian newspapers (that are the mouthpieces for the regime) have echoed the wishes of their supreme leader that they are considering a blockade on the Strait. How does this hurt us? Have you every complained about gas prices? Think about this. Most of the world’s oil comes through the Strait of Hormuz. Already, news of Iran’s unconfirmed threat has driven oil prices up $3, to more than $100 a barrel. If this actually happens, prices could soar to $250. (rferl.org)4FCBE941-63C8-420B-ABD5-E01D61404E43_w640_r1_s

The axis between Iran and Russia is a serious problem to world peace, and more importantly to US Power. Russia also has an earnest necessity in keeping Iran out of the UN “Dog House”. When Sanctions are lifted from Iran, Russia has the ability to trade with them. The Russian machine requires middle eastern oil, and their symbiotic relationship with the Persian Nation has benefited them greatly in years past. For this reason Russia has generally sided with Iran in opposition to the UN security council. Furthermore, a Nuclear Iran is a powerful check against the Israeli-American alliance that threatens Vladamir Putin’s conquest of sattelite nations (which he has shown constantly with occupation in Georgia and Ukraine).

Ok, so that’s not good. Hmmm, why haven’t we heard about this on everyday television? 

But wait, here’s the deal breaker. On top of all the other stupidity, this deal allows Iran to inspect their own facilities! And if they fail to comply (I don’t know how it is even possible not to comply) they don’t have to uphold the negative side of the deal and receive punishment. If this is the strongest deal we could make now, imagine how the deal will be renegotiated when they have nukes. We blew it!

If they are harrassing our sailors now, just think about what they will get away with when they are more formidable. (Both economically and militarily)

Iran has, of course, responded to all of this lenience by–YOU GUESSED IT–increasing their ICBM (Inter-Continental-Ballistic-Missiles) Testing. But I’m sure it’s just to heat their homes.

If you thought that the deal would have covered ICBM tests, well you gave John Kerry a wee-bit much credit. Because the deal states (according to The Times of Israel) Iran is only “called upon not to” test missiles, but not expressly forbidden from doing so, Iran has used that loophole to increase its testing with impunity.

“Called upon” That’s it. 

Incase, you’re starting to question the legitimacy of this deal, I’ll let you know that it does have a cute name: The Offering can be refered to as the “Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)”. What I don’t understand though is before any of these fancy names, the sanctions WERE working! They were devastating the Iranian economy like we noted earlier. The weapon bans were working. We were keeping weapons technology out of the hands of lunatics. Why is it that the Left doesn’t trust law abiding Americans with firearms, but it trusts Islamo-Fascists with Nuclear Weapons. There are two rules everyone knows as a kid: 1. Don’t take candy from strangers. 2. Don’t give Islamo-Nazis Funds to support Terrorism. This whole deal renders only one outcome, and you are witnessing this free-for-all in the Strait of Hormuz this week, but of course, they are not the first. 

According to CNN, “These brushes have included Iranian Rocket launches (wow just like the tests we were just talking about), drones flying over US vessels and the capture of US sailors back in January. These come against the backdrop of renewed US diplomatic contacts with Iran, which has triggered a political backlash among Iranian hardliners, including the powerful IRGC.”

This is what you get when you make a deal with the devil. And no, I’m sorry, we are not Big Satan. These animals captured our sailors and took a boat load (no pun intended) of pictures for propaganda. They even fired a rocket near one of our Aircraft Carriers the USS Harry Truman. They are just testing the waters and seeing how much they can get away with. It won’t be long before one of these incidents turns out in a devastating matter. Then what? And who could blame them, they clearly know that we wMideast-Iran-U_Horo1on’t lift a finger. They know the Obama administration is in an awful place and therefore they have assurance. Barack just came home with Hitler’s signature like Chamberlain in Britain, “look we have peace”. “Look at what a great negotiater I am. Iran is an ally!” Yet, if we threaten them and tell them to stop messing with us, all of the bragging looks like garbage. The Iran Nuclear Offering will be seen for what it really is. Bullshit. Hence the game of Battle-Ship. Iran is seeing how close they can get those white pegs to our Destroyers, Battleships and Carriers before we react. 

In July Iranian ships sailed close to USS New Orleans while Gen. Joseph Votel commander of Central Command, was aboard (CNN). If you don’t think that the timing was on purpose you are kidding yourself. Iran is sending a clear message that they now hold the reigns. And with every move, they move the saddle a bit farther up Obama’s back, because they know he can’t do anything to stop them. He cornered himself! Think of what a dunce Obama would appear as if he fired on an Iranian ship after boasting for the last year and a half that we are now great friends with Iran… And with that we came to the climax yesterday when one of our Naval Ships actually had to fire warning shots on Iranian vessels. Madness. Truly unspeakable madness. Unfortunately, I don’t predict this will be anywhere near the end of the story. But let’s move on to the next and final (that we will cover here, yet I contend there are more) level of why this deal was dishonest.


If we were watching the Movie Inception—With this amount of twisted deception—we would be approaching what they call Limbo. The Iran Nuclear Offering is built on lies. And when you sink all the way down to the Hades of lies, you find yourself on a plane stacked to the ceiling with unmarked cash in the middle of the night. No my friends, I know what you’re thinking… “We already covered the cash”. But this cash is not the “Unfrozen Assets”. The Limbo of Lies we find ourself in now is a lie within a lie within a lie within a lie making this money nothing other than ransom money. Moreover, the Obama administration purposely kept this quiet, purposely used cash that was unmarked and untraceable, purposely sent Swiss currency (and other currencies) to avoid U.S. banking laws, and when all of this came out they denied it….until they admitted it.  Unknown

They lied to you. Then they got caught and they kept lying to your face. The Obama administration pre-meditated on how they could get around the laws we have in place which prevent us from sending money to Iran—let alone ransom money! 

This plane contained $400m in tax-payer cash. Yeah, your money. Which is only to be dwarfed by the 1.7 Billion Dollars we ultimately paid for the release of our American citizens. I would go into the details of why this is ransom money because the White House has denied it claiming that it was negotiated in another roomabedini-ransom-575x324and that somehow makes it not as bad and so on… but since the administration has since admitted that this was a ransom, I’ll save my breath. 

Ever since this deal was made, even more Americans have been taken as hostage in Iran and all around the world. This is lesson 1 on why you don’t pay ransoms. Not to mention—if you’ll excuse me—Iran should be our bitch. If we want our prisoners home, they will give us our innocent prisoners. We’re talking journalists, ministers, hikers, give me a break. ObamabowsAbdullah1The Iranian regime is arguably the worst in the modern era. We should not be kissing their butts, and in the case of the president “bowing” to them to show respect. There is no respect for people who kill journalists, and don’t allow women to drive, uphold honor killings and stone innocents. Mr. President, please tell me how you can hold yourself as a defender of “Gay Rights” while you’re negotiating with whole countries who behead them. 

I hold the absurd view that if you examine this deal, you will not only unequivocally condemn it, but you will never again trust the Obama Administration. I challenge you to do so.

Dear Thinkers,


Go ahead, look up. It’s there! Can you see the glass ceiling? Well, if it’s not visible to you, then perhaps you’re not alone. However, you had better pretend like you see it and go along with the narrative for your own sake.

I’m reminded constantly—from the same lovely people who vehemently hate Carly Fiorina—that among the United States exists an impermeable glass ceiling. A glass ceiling which is the sole obstacle women face in achieving success. This is why we hear continuously about how women make a dismal 70 cents on the dollar in contrast to their male counterparts. But ironically, we often hear this rhetoric from people who, yes, happen to pay their own female employees in the same manner. For instance, the President of the United States pays his female workers LESS than the average while simultaneously sounding the loudest outcry of unfairness towards women—much like the coach who blames the referee after the game is already finished. Am I missing something? And to use your words again sir, they just need “a fair shot”, can’t you dish out another few cents? …I now realize we may have misunderstood the essence of the ‘Change’ slogan. It instead, from day one, has compensated women with pennies on the dollar. But that’s not even my point. This issue is the self-serving dialogue regurgitated by the Left. I’ve yet to give an opinion. I’ve merely shown that in his arrogance, the Prosecutor has incriminated himself.

Dear Lefties, If you want to use the 70 cents on the dollar rhetoric, then you had better be prepared to call the President a sexist, but it was you who voted for him, remember? And it was he (you may remember) who lectured that ‘we need to give him more of our hard earned money’, because in allocating such funds, he was most wise. Well, if that’s what he meant, then wouldn’t it lead you to wonder if the man is an unconscious sexist—or worse? He claims Racism is in our DNA (an anti scientific position). If this be the case, under his own criteria, he himself is responsible for abusing women. But unlike the Left, I will be honest and offer that I do not believe the President has one iota of sexism in him. (What is an iota by the way? I got that word from Barack-the-Wise himself) I have, however illustrated the absurdity of this argument, and let it remind you of the desperate measures and dishonesty that the Left will take to retain power. Had it been a Conservative in the same position, we wouldn’t have witnessed the same grace. Remember that sexist Mitt Romney?   But I digress…


On a newsworthy note, this week, Hillary Clinton has finally clinched enough votes to become the Democratic nominee, which is the first time that a major party has had a female nominee for President in the history of this nation. As a side note, I think it’s a pretty cool milestone, but a side note is all that this should remain. Is there not a greater task at hand beside checking a box next to the first female president? Our way of governing America should not reflect a 15-year-old’s summer bucket list.

Admittedly several Barack Obama voters in the last two elections (especially the first) turned out in droves because they wanted to be part of electing the first black president. Now what the hell happened to judging someone based on their character? But they’ll tell you they were on the right side of history—meanwhile sending the country dangerously to the Left of the Political norm.

Unfortunately, Dear Leftist, I’ve got news for you buddy, I wasn’t around in the past while you were trampling blacks and women. Therefore, I don’t have to answer for the wrongs you are responsible for and correct the flaws of the past. Remember it was the Democratic party that was the party of Slavery and Segregation? Yeah that’s right, back when the name you called the other party was the ‘Black Republicans’, because their platform was based on abolition and equality. The nerve of them! But for the Left it’s never been about moral superiority. It’s about votes. Just ask Obama and Clinton about their ever-shifting stance on traditional marriage…but you needn’t get anxious because we’ll cover that in just a moment. 

It is no wonder that the Left has to practice this affirmative action both in the workplace as well as the ballot box. (not to mention schools) The Left feels guilty—and who could blame them—because they have to make up for their scarred past and what a scarred one it is. But they certainly know, as long as they keep fabricating the narrative that the Right hates minorities and women, then, on paper, they will appear the party of progress.

“Are you sick of that old beige Truck? Vote for us and we’ll get you that red-hot-new convertable,” But does it drive I ask?

You see, I don’t care what our car looks like, as long as it drives, and drives well. Sure I’d like the new car just to change things up and get some fun variation, but we’re in a state of desperation my friends.

Instead I’m met with, “why are you asking all these questions about Hillary’s platform, are you racist? Sexist? Against Progress?”

“Don’t you remember, Hillary broke through the glass ceiling?” Hooray! But what will she do to the country? —– “Don’t ask those questions you sexist!”—- “Why do you want to know the efficiency of the car?” —-“Don’t ask about the gas mileage…we got you something new” …in this case a woman President.

Something you may want to know is that Hillary has managed to avoid every single press conference for almost a year…that means she hasn’t answered one unscripted question! That’s unheard of from a candidate!

But why is there not this kind of blanket support for the candidates on the Right? Palin or Fiorina? Bachmann? They are women too are they not? And if I am constantly accused of being anti-woman by making the case against Hillary, then why are you pro-woman for trashing these three well qualified, scandal-free, hard-working Ladies. Now I am no fan of Palin, but you must admit that she doesn’t deserve to receive character defamation just because you disagree with her politically…. And if you think she does, then please do tell me what Hillary Clinton deserves for staying with a man who has been accused of rape multiple times and has lied under oath, been impeached, has herself, intimidated the rape victims about speaking out against her husband, as well as lying about what happened in Benghazi after letting our men on the ground die in torture at the hands of terrorists, along with lying face to face to the families who lost their loved ones about how Benghazi was not a terrorist attack, (at the same time on the phone with her daughter stating that it was terrorism), sitting in the situation room allowing our men to die at the hands of animals while debating which uniforms the rescue teams should wear, then deciding not to send anyone for help. Furthermore, allowing the sale of over 20 percent of our Uranium enrichments to our enemies—yes the rare resource for building nuclear weapons—while she was running the State Department, meanwhile receiving money from all over the world under the sham of giving speeches that were just magically worth hundreds of thousands of dollars (what was she giving out, disneyland tickets? Cus’ as we witnessed Thursday night, she is surely not worth $250,000 a speech) and on top of all of that hiding emails on a private server that we now know was hacked by foreign nations and hostile players and have leaked National Security classified documents which have now jeoporadized average American lives… and what was she doing on that server? What was so illegal that had to be deleted? Because that’s what she did, before turning it over, by hand she deleted 30,000+ emails by hand! Not with the delete button, but to the point that the forensic teams still can’t even find what she deleted. She claimed it was wedding plans, Yoga instructions, and recipes… HMMMM…When was the last time you professionally (and illegally) hired people to delete 30,000 yoga lessons from your server to the point that they are irretrivable to even the best computer geeks in the world? We’re not talking about moving things to the recycle bin ladies and gentlemen… So what name is it that you have for her? What do you think of Hillary Clinton then?

But we’re not done: Then suddenly “I did not delete any emails,” became “I did not delete any classified emails,” Then it became, “okay I deleted them and it was a mistake,” does that remind you of something? “I did not have sex with that woman?” Because it was oral sex… sickening, but what is more sickening is the lie about the youtube video to cover up the terrorist attack…those families lost sons to the hands of those bastards who—speaking of rape—sodomized our servicemen in the streets of Libya while Clinton sat in her cushy situation room thinking of the best way to spin the story to the media while she (and the President) full well could have aided (as we had nearby military personnel). Hillary just counted her money and didn’t lift a finger. But as she told us, “what difference at this point does it make?” To the voter, apparently none.

Since you asked, I’ll grant you what I would call her. A Theif. Because that’s what she did after she left the White House with Billy… they stole art off the walls and were forced by law to return the paintings to the white house. These aren’t good people my friends… and that pales in comparison to selling favors while running the State Dpt. in turn for donations from terrorist sympathizers and foreign nations.

For you non-interventionist Lefties, she allowed more bombs to be dropped on more nations in her 4 years than all of George Bush’s Presidency, she disarmed nations that were cooperating with us…THEN BOMBED THEM and ran guns to terrorists who sought to topple those regimes…Well at the time I guess they weren’t terrorists, some of them were just a lonely group who needed help… called ISIS! Also, she titled Boko Haram as “Not a Terrorist Group” (and she took a donation for that one don’t forget), and I know this is a throwback, but does anyone remember Whitewater? Mr. milenial, I know this scandal precedes our short lived memory, but I have a computer, and I happen to guess that you posses one too. And this all can be solved with typing a few words into Google, and WHAM! Would you believe that, Hillary and Bill were using hard working tax-payer money to build condos! (so much for the middle class) Some 15 or so people ended up going to jail who were related to the controversy, but not Bill and Hill! Would you believe that? Some people even ended up dead! But just like a House of Cards episode, Bill and Hillary walked out of the fire unscathed like a Bourne movie after he just took a whole round through the chest and somehow keeps running around shooting people. It’s literally UN-BE-LIEVABLE! And as the FBI director said a few weeks ago, if anyone else did what Hillary did, they’d be in jail… but instead Hillary keeps stacking her benjamins and with it her influence. And who knows, maybe her adorable face will be on there in the next few years. Remember she’s for the kids! And the Environment! And Gay Marriage! 

Wait, wasn’t it Hillary, who as a lawyer, defended a Child Rapist and accused a little 5 or 6-year-old girl of imagining things? While the little girl was on the stand, Hillary berated her with making things up and miraculously got the bloody underwear thrown out of the case. And didn’t she crap all over the environmental movement when she represented Monsanto, the colossal GMO producer and distributer? Lastly—and I’m just as tired as you are—didn’t her husband pass the largest defense of marriage act in the history of our nation which stood in staunch opposition to gay rights? Well that can easily be explained away by her “deeply held religious views”, which apparently changed as soon as it came time to grab more votes.

If I bring all of this to your attention you’ll slam me for being anti woman, not on the right side of history, and whatever else you can come up with to ignore the facts. But wasn’t it Margaret Thatcher who was literally on the right side of history while she was on the RIGHT side of the aisle acting as one of the single best statesmen or women in the history of the world…? Crickets… Is it not the Left that destroys her? Was it not the Left that ripped apart Sandra Day O’Connor, the first female supreme court justice appointed by the ‘evil’ Ronald Reagan? Don’t you dare, criticize her, you’ll get a dose of your own medicine my friends. And Condolezza Rice? What about her? The first female (and black) secretary of state? Where is the double standard? Yet, don’t be silly, the glass ceiling only exists when the Left finds it Politically expedient.

You see, when we can’t make Conservatives look like they hate women, there is nothing remaining for the Left to run on. There is no longer a need for the Democratic party. They must instead highlight the flaws—they themselves—have created in the past, and now ride in on their high horse claiming that they alone can save us from them….It’s truly a brilliant strategy if you think about it!

They just have to hope everyone has a poor memory and a bad history teacher, and would you believe that… They are the ones who control the school systems, so they can single handedly suppress their horrid record! Amazing. Truly Amazing. If you don’t believe me, explain to me why it is that you didn’t know about Hillary stealing art from the white house? Or about Whitewater? And when that is the case, it is no wonder that the Democratic front runner, (man or woman) is as corrupt as the party itself. Well don’t take my word for it, this corruption is proven by the Russian email release from the past week and can be viewed in the light if journalists could just take a hiatus from salivating over Donald Trump’s Twitter feed.

And as Hillary herself (in a CNN debate last year) answered Anderson Cooper’s question about how she would not be a 3rd term of the Obama administration, when asked about what she would bring to the table that would be different from the Obama administration she laughed and said, “Well, I think that’s pretty obvious, I think being a woman president would be quite a change”. And in another interview she also said “well if you vote for someone based on the merits, one of the merits is I’M A WOMAN”.

Thanks for the reminder hun. 

Yes Hillary, you shattered the glass ceiling. That is your merit, nothing more. And now you have to pick up the sharp, fragmented, pieces of your shameful past that makes you so evidently a fraud. Congrats America, you’re on the way to electing someone who was against gay marriage because of her “deeply held religious views”. They must not have been as deep as her desire for power, to sit once more on Pennsylvania Avenue trampling on the backs of us, the “little people”. But I’m the sexist?  Conservatives love women—we have moms too believe it or not. But I refuse to vote based on genitalia, how shallow is that? Let us judge by the content of one’s character, and if that be the case, Lying and Stealing alone should be a disqualification for any office.

Reminder: I am not a Trump supporter nor a Trump voter. I am a Truth-Sayer, although I am certain I will be attacked for writing this Article as if I support Trump. That could not be farther from the truth. I hope we are able to focus on the problems with Mrs. Clinton and not deflect to “Yeah but look how bad Trump is”. I do intend to cover Trump’s flaws in the coming weeks. If facts offend you, I have no advice for you. Keep in mind there is a lot more we still MUST cover regarding Hillary Clinton, this Article could only fit a humble few of the overwhelming stains from Hillary’s past. The more research I do, the more it starts to look like an infinite laundry list. Thank you Dear Thinkers for using your brains. I know this is a daunting task as the seduction of emotional arguments and late night comedy is often the easy road traveled.

Dear Thinkers,


I understand that we (as a nation) are preoccupied with the Drama and Headlines in wake of the Convention, but allow me to zoom out for just a moment before we lose sight of the larger picture. I do intend to tie it all together, so in the meantime, you needn’t get your panties in a wad contemplating which speech was most recently copy-pasted from Wikipedia or who’s crying in the sand box because of endorsements. I assure you we will have plenty of time to cover that in the impending days.


Now, let’s rewind a week’s time to the moment I stumbled off the beach Friday afternoon to find Turkey ablaze. For those of you who still have yet to be informed, Turkey is on fire—and for now I’ll skip the joke about checking the oven.

On Friday at about 11 o’clock local time (ET ensues by 7 hrs), a coup attempt was reported in Istanbul & Ankara, Turkey. Among the graphic images were human bodies run over by cars, men beaten, Military Helicopters firing on civilians, and innocent people crawling on the ground to avoid gunfire. This, unfortunately my friends, is the REAL world in which we live. 

As I partially noted, all of this was underway while I was sitting on the beach carelessly watching volleyball on the other side of the globe. Back in Turkey: Chaos echoed throughout the night as the narrow streets amplified the sound of rockets and machine guns…Meanwhile, in the States, some of my friends were casually enjoying cocktails, others at the movies, and it goes without saying that there may have been one or two of us tossing a Pokéball while these events transpired.

I note the comparison because, if nothing else, this is a reminder of how out of touch we are here in America. The life we live is sheltered, and I say this not in complaint, but with gratitude, considering, ‘last time I checked’, military tanks rolling through your neighborhood is not altogether something to boast.

Among these incidents were takeovers of Newsrooms, and F-16’s shooting down stolen military helicopters over domestic cities—not battle grounds. These are events we only witness in movies. Due to the Media takeover President Erdogan was forced to broadcast his speech to his constituents through his iPhone on FaceTime, the whole event sounds fictional!

But my Thinkers, I write you not to talk about the Politics surrounding the event, or the ramifications to the US, and I very well could, as the US base in Turkey was ordered to “Force Protection Condition Delta” (which is meant for a truly catastrophic Terrorist Attack) and President Erdogan’s moral acuteness is by no means infallible. In fact, his record hints at quite the opposite. The guy is a corrupt, crooked, bastard (CCB). And that is part of the reason this story concerns you and I (and we’ll get to that in a minute). Our focus, however, should—in this instant—be acknowledging that all of this disorder must serve as a reminder of the turbulent world which girds us.

I reiterate, this is not to berate Americans, but this case, as well as the massive Terror Attack in France last week, are signs that the state of the world is volatile. (There were also several small scale attacks this week) With China Militarizing and showing naval aggression in the South China Sea, Russia’s expansion into The Ukraine, N. Korea just this week testing ICBM(Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) and don’t forget Nuclear Iran that looms in the near future… We are stuck in the midst of a hotbed. That goes without reference to Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Egypt, Tunisia, and the instability we face in those locations. One might acknowledge that you wouldn’t have to posses superior foresight to notice that there is only a matter of time before one of these swords crosses our nose—God forbid in the decadent wrapping paper of an ICBM.

This Presidential Season, which is unfortunately filled with Con-Victs and Con-Artists, must, among countless issues feature a serious discussion about foreign policy. No I’m not talking about mobilizing and marching into another War in the Middle East. In actuality, we don’t even have enough money to do so thanks to the last 16 years of Shopping-Spree-type-spending. We’ve witnessed this from Congress, and from Presidents that have been blatantly selfish and irresponsible on both sides of the aisle. But what we must receive from the platforms in the next two weeks—after both conventions subside— is a strategy to keep you and I both safe and build up the force that protects us, the U.S. Military. Is that too much to ask for? I hesitate to check either party’s platform for fear of what I may find. 

– Security through massive Defense Budget Increases 


–  Insecurity through disregard of the threats at hand

Both are unacceptable to a country plagued with debt and threatened by foreign danger.

Oh Christian, stop fear mongering… Well our Military is now down to the smallest it has been since WWI, which at the time was pitifully smaller than nations like Portugal. Furthermore, China is projected to have a larger Navy than the U.S. by 2020. Keep in mind that we have dominated the Seas for over a century—we are up for a rude awakening.

May I also mention that the man who is responsible for the coup in Turkey happens to reside in America! That’s right, the man who funded and who is now being blamed for organizing the uprising resides here in Pennsylvania. Dear Thinkers, use your head. I’m sure you are able to discern that things are not advantageous for us if this be the case.

Erdegon is soon going to meet with Putin in person to discuss a strategy and I can’t help but feeling that  the two of them won’t have anything great to say about the ‘Good Ol’ Land of the Free”. Keep in mind Turkey now has the second largest land army in NATO. How the heck did that happen?

The answer is that Canada, France, Germany, and Great Britain have been screwing around with downsizing and Leftist policies that effectively defunded and decimated their military strength, let alone their ability to defend themselves from Terrorism and the threats that loom—which is exactly my point! We, the American people, cannot, come November, whether it be Clinton, Trump, or Peyton Manning (who—now that he’s retired—I’m starting to think we should all vote for) sign on to either platform if they are not concentrated on keeping you and I safe. Because no Democrat, Republican, Libertarian, Fireman, School Teacher, Lawyer, Developer, Medical Doctor, or Salesman wants to live in disarray. Only you and I can ensure our safety at the ballot box. We must demand it out of our self centered politicians.

We deserve peace and safety. You and I don’t want to worry about Terror, we have enough stress in our daily lives…We deserve domestic tranquility—and guess what, this is only achieved through absolute strength. Nobody steals Milk Money from Chuck Norris. And when someone attempts to inflict harm on us, the youth are the individuals who have to answer the call. They alone pay the price in combat. Protect our young men and women. If you are my age (draft age), you carry all the more incentive to drop the dainty peace-sign, protesting, anti-military, disposition and listen to me. Peace is wrought through deterrence. And we ought to be wise with today’s “Milk Money”, for it renders tomorrow’s ability to safeguard such funds. This type of Realism will provide for a prosperous future—a country that is so impregnable and forceful that outward evils will shiver in their caves with nightmares and teddy-bears. Do not vote for anything less.

“That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”– President Barack Obama

Dec. 4, 2015

Dear Thinkers,


“We want more dudes!” said the President. 

Or at least it sounded something like that. The talking points that have been spilling out of the White House over the past few weeks have echoed this theme ever since the infamous tragedy witnessed in Paris. 

This is at least what I got out of it, but the actual words of the Press Secretary Josh Ernest, and even Mr. Obama himself seemed to be utterly different(yet they carried the same meaning). Obama absconded his desires when he criticized his opposition for being “worried about three-year-old orphans.” He went on to say “That doesn’t sound very tough to me.”

Here lies the problem. They just specifically spoke of a young child! But that is of course, not the end of the debate. That 3-year-old child doesn’t get here by itself does it? In my past experiences I’ve found that most 3-year-olds for some reason do not know how to traverse the Atlantic and march across the U.S. border on their own. That would be idiotic. That would mean that someone is obviously taking that 3-year-old here….but let’s not get distracted by this straw man(which is what the White House wants), because there is little evidence to show that orphans are the ones who we are talking about. 

Of course there are going to be refugees when you destabilize countries and turn people’s home streets into battlefields, and this was clear when they (The Administration) supported toppling dictators in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and currently in Syria with Assad. We are propping up and arming radical rebels in order to accomplish our mission! For instance, the rocket that shot down the Russian rescue chopper was supplied by the United States to these Radical Rebels(like Al Queda and ISIS).  

More on that next week, but for the time being, let’s ignore the cause and just look at the consequences. 

Over the past 3 years, Europe has seen massive amounts of immigration, almost to the point of an invasion. Why is this bad? Well these countries are receiving massive onslaughts of not women and orphans, but instead military age men(18 to 25). So when Obama says,“Slamming the door in the face of refugees would betray our deepest values. That’s not who we are. And it’s not what we’re going to do,” it makes you wonder what his agenda is…

I’ll tell you what I think it is: More Dudes.

The President wants more dudes. Islamic, Jihadist, DUDES. Now I’m not sure why, and I won’t guess because that would be based completely on speculation. But there is a fundamental truth that the President’s policies have resulted in nothing but a massive migration of Dudes, and these dudes are not refugees. 

More importantly, Mr. Obama is being disingenuous. He keeps telling us about these women and children but as we have seen in Europe (just look at France), this is an Islamic invasion of the western world. And it would be silly to pretend that this would be a positive outcome all in the name of TOLERANCE.  

Obama has access to the same information that I do and the fact that he is addressing it with dishonesty is plain out wrong. 

This position I take is not being anti immigrant. It is being wise. Many will compare this scenario to the 1930’s with Jewish immigrants that the U.S. turned its back on….This is an unparalleled comparison for two reasons: Jewish people were not Nazis. There was an easy way to filter the Jew from the Nazi…. And more importantly, Muslim countries(that is what they are as they have theist Muslim governing bodies as well as sharia law in place) can take these Muslim immigrants. Iran and Saudi Arabia have decided not to, because they know that these immigrants are not “refugees”. 

In Turkey last week, (a country that has seen massive amounts of refugees) a soccer stadium had a moment of silence before the game for the French in wake of the attack. The stadium booed and interrupted the moment, signifying that they think France deserved the attacks. These are radical individuals, do we want them in our stadiums at home? I think not. 

So why do we need more dudes? This affinity for middle eastern, military age, dudes is going to ruin our country as we plan to admit north of 70,000 in the coming year. Why dudes? And if the white house is so set on it, why not admit that they aren’t talking about women and children…but normal muslim dudes as well as radical jihadists that will surely be in the mix. Until then, we should allow people to immigrate normally, WITH FULL VETTING PROCESSES. Is that not a better solution? Is that unreasonable?

But with more dudes comes more problems Mr. President, maybe that “doesn’t sound very tough to” you, but it is unwise and more accurately: Weird to keep funneling dudes into our country (as Europe has done). Get your dude obsession out of the way while you are in France this week. They have admitted more than enough and unfortunately, the dudes who shot up that Concert Hall were just some of them. How many more lie idle, waiting for their turn to strike?
