MAGA 2.0: Bigger, Better, Faster and Permanent

‘The laws should be rigidly enforced which prohibit the immigration of a servile class to compete with American labor, with no intention of acquiring citizenship, and bringing with them and retaining habits and customs repugnant to our civilization.’

‘A cause worth fighting for is worth fighting for to the end.’

 ‘Our citizens have the right to protection from the incompetency of public employees who hold their places solely as the reward of partisan service.’

‘Communism is a hateful thing, and a menace to peace and organized government.’

 

  • All quotations of Grover Cleveland, who, until 2024, will have been the only president to serve 2 non-consecutive terms.  He was a dem, but a good one, and a far right winger by today’s standards.

Fellow Patriots, whether by decertification of the 2020 election results due to fraud, or the overwhelming landslide that will occur in 2024, Donald Trump will be the 47th President of the United States.

Its time to recommend and put forth his agenda for the next term.  He’s got lots of clean up to do.  We know that he can do it.  Joe Biden is and will be a skid mark on the history of the United States.

 

  • Finish the wall.  Overhaul immigration.  Forever stop illegal immigration by making it impossible through walls, drones, electronic means and aggressive/thorough visa enforcement.
  • Eliminate foreign aid; begin leveraged foreign assistance.  That means to get a dime from us we get something back, to include taking your illegal aliens back.
  • Complete NATO solvency.  We are out if the allies don’t pay their bills.  Enforced in the first 90 Days.
  • Begin ‘Pacific NATO’ to counter Chinese aggression; replicate post WWII model for defending free nations in the Pacific region.  Require the re-arming of Japan.  Japan and Korea to play the roles their economic power requires.  Philippines to step up.  Indonesia too.  Pull in Vietnam as an ally.
  • Implement Chinese Reparations for the China Virus Epidemic.  Offer concessions for honesty and a legitimate answer on how it was started.  Assume it was on purpose to start.  Opening bid is $20 Trillion.  It can go up or down based on their behavior.  Collected via direct payment, debt cancellation, or tariff.
  • Western Hemisphere Alliance: begin to negotiate a communist-free western hemisphere alliance based on our shared western heritage and common security interests in North and South America.  Require participation and funding by all nations.  Begin the isolation and ultimate de-communization of Cuba and Venezuela via internal friendly parties.  Fix Haiti once and for all via dedicated coalition of charitable partners that do not include any US State Department resources, the Clinton Foundation, the Gates Foundation or any other organization associated with human trafficking.
  • North Korea: finish what was started.  Rocket Man is waiting the return of his friend to negotiate a nuke free Korean peninsula.   Get the US troops home.  Agree to guarantee Kim’s safety with an agreement to normalize relations between north and south.  If he stays, fine,  If he exiles in China – fine.  Let’s all move on.  Allow travel and development.  Let them work it out while Pacific NATO grows in strength and power.
  • Restructure the Federal Government/Bureaucracy (De-Swampification):
    • Decommission the Pentagon as an office.  Turn it into a museum or commercial office space.  Move military operational HQ to the midwestern United States.  Ft Riley, KS or Ft Leonard Wood, MO.  The locations will attract those willing to serve and prevent swamp connections and corruption in Washington, D.C.
    • Move all other offices of the federal government out of Washington DC and divide them up among the entire geography of the United States to include Hawaii, Alaska and the territories.  Sell off all offices in the Washington DC area.  Good examples are the DOJ and the FBI.  Move them to different and distant states.  Consider permanent elimination of the corrupt FBI.
    • Close the department of education permanently and send all related assets to the states.
    • Close HUD; send all related assets and activities to the states.
    • Consolidate, consolidate, consolidate agencies, organizations, pet projects, ruthlessly.  Let the swamp feel the reorgs and layoffs we’ve all felt forever.
    • Much like Space Force, develop a scientic branch of the military specifically dedicated to defense against the emergence of bio-weapons, sonic/Havanna effect weapons, chem/nuke, electronic pulse, laser and other weaponry we know that our adversaries are aggressively developing.  Science Force All the Way?  POTUS will name it well.  That I can tell you.

Other items on the domestic front:

  • Begin the permanent de-communization of the United States thorough civics education, strict visa/immigration compliance and aggressive removal of Chinese bribery initiatives
  • In all ways reduce the scope of the federal government to the intent of the constitution.  Truly relegate all to the states that should be.
  • Require honest work; eliminate welfare where it is not needed; replace with retraining credits
  • Get business taxes to 15% to win the global battle for investment and jobs
  • Continue bilateral trade agreements
  • Allow the private sector to find win/win solutions to pollution and clean energy; reward through incentives.  Dump all foreign ‘deals’ that punish our workforce.
  • Institute studies, taskforces, awards that institutionalize true American history.  Re-institute the 1776 project.
  • Fully constitutional Supreme Court
  • Refresh and renew the Republican Party with zero RINO’s; help lead a de-communization of the Democrat party
  • Win back the Black vote for republicans and solidify Latinos as a reliable republican block of voters
  • Finish Enterprise Zones and work with the private industry and states to at long last fix inner cities; make failed democrat leadership of inner cities obvious

Those are my initial thoughts fellow Patriots?  What are yours?  Please leave them in the comments.  I’ll close with a few things you already know:

  • Phuck Joe Biden (clap, clap, clap clap clap!)
  • Trump Won, We all know!
  • Hillary still sucks
  • Barr was a phony and a disappointment
  • The mooch was a D-head
  • Pence lost his nerve
  • Milley for Gitmo
  • They killed Joan Rivers for calling out the obvious.  We all know.
  • W they have something on him. What is it?

Overweight, Political, Failing and Woke: The Sad State of America’s General Officers

=14

By @BlakJakPershing on GETTR, @PershingSoldier on Parler, @PershingSoldier on Clouthub and @BlackJackPershing on Gab

Dateline July 15th, 2021             Liberty, USA

‘Fat, drunk and stupid is no way to go through life, son’

-Dean Wormer, Animal House

To paraphrase the Dean, ‘fat, scared, stupid and woke is no way to go through a military career, General Milley!’

‘There’s no power in a bushel of blubber’

                General George S Patton

Its about time we discuss the state of many, but not all General Officers in recent years, especially the ones choosing to bad mouth our legitimate Commander in Chief, Donald J Trump.

A bit of history first.  We haven’t solidly and specifically won a war since 1991.  The Gulf War was a stellar use of strategy, tactics and restraint.  Bravo.  This war used what was known as the ‘Powell Doctrine’ a set of lessons learned from Vietnam about the need for clear goals and the use of overwhelming force for clean victories.

One could argue that ’91 was the year we could say that the Cold War was also won after years of commitment and leadership by many in several generations of political and military leadership – it was even mostly a bi-partisan effort until the 1980’s.

Since ’91 however, whether it was Clinton’s draw down of the military in the so called ‘peace dividend’, or the two wars poorly fought under the supervision of George W Bush and Barack Obama, our military leaders have let us and our soldiers, airmen and marines down.

There have been moments of brilliance.  Battles have been won by the rank and file, by junior and midlevel officers and NCO’s.  But at the strategic leadership level, we have been let down.  There have been legitimate small engagements like Panama or Kosovo that were positive.  Missions like the one in Haiti that achieved good humanitarian aims for a time.

But the big jobs have been bungled by Generals.  The list of the incompetent GO’s is long. 

Many veterans know that once you get to the rank of O-6, or full Colonel in the Army, Airforce and Marines or Captain in the Navy, all future promotions are purely political.

‘Anyone who thinks he’s indispensable, ain’t!’

                General George S Patton

We haven’t seen many, if any, principled resignations at the General Officer level in the last 20 years.  We can only imagine there have been plenty of opportunities.  We would hope that our senior military officers would have the moral courage to walk away from poor civilian leadership.  We need to be able to count on that.  But that  apparently doesn’t happen despite many opportunities: Understaffing the invasion force of Iraq? Performing social experimentation in the ranks of our troops?  Requiring pseudo-socialist training that has zero to do with war fighting? Summary cuts to critical budgets for training? Requiring trans persons to be part of a force that still disallows people with flat feet and other musculoskeletal issues due to the need for readiness?  Announcing an Iraq departure that gives birth to the Caliphate? These weren’t enough to cause principled resignations?  Not even a public negative comment?

   We have a cohort of General Officers who have delivered a generation of lost wars, who act as if they deserve respect and admiration but really deserve the opposite.

We have a cohort of General Officers who show open bias politically. But here is the official guidance from the department of defense:

The primary guidance concerning political activity for military members is found in DoD Directive 1344.10. Per longstanding DoD policy, active duty personnel may not engage in partisan political activities and all military personnel should avoid the inference that their political activities imply or appear to imply DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of a political candidate, campaign, or cause.

These cowardly GO’s would gladly prosecute junior officers, NCO’s and troops under the UCMJ for doing far less than they have done, in terms of their cooperation with the foul aims of the democrat party and their attempts to undermine the Trump administration in the roll out of its policies.

Think of SecDef Mattis and his open contempt of his boss.  Well General Mattis, he was only trying to change things because of your record of failure.

Think of egg heads like General Michael Hayden, a Four Star General who also served as Head Spook at the CIA for a number of years.  This arrogant Swampian has screeched out regularly about President Trump, bringing dishonor on himself and his rank.  The likely reason is because of what Trump knows of the General’s failures and malfeasance.

Think of poor General McChrystal, dissed by Obama after doing a pretty good job, because of leaked comments to press scumbags he should have never associated with.  Apparently a life long learner like Stan didn’t learn a key lesson and went back to supporting democrat dopes and openly bad mouthing President Trump on Syria tactics during his term.  Trump was right.  Again.  Stan’s motives remain unclear as he’s been openly dissed by Dems for years.  Just dumb I guess.

Think of lost at Sea Admiral McRaven of ‘Make Your Bed’ fame, another sad sack openly bad mouthing President Trump for any number of reasons.  Guys like him can’t handle unconventional leaders like Trump.  Thank God the founders ‘got it’ and understood our system would produce a variety of leaders, some colorful.  Swampian stiffs like McRaven obsess on ‘he said mean things’ while losing wars and acting cocky.

Think of Woke Fatty, Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs who was savagely and appropriately corrected publicly by the President in a statement on the day of this writing for musing to the press about Trumps desires for a coup.  Trump hires him, gives him a chance after others dissed him, and Milley returns the favor by kissing woke democrat arse.  A sad mess, a disgrace to the uniform – especially because his ability to pass an Army Physical Fitness Test isn’t even in the remotest of possibilities.

Let’s pause here and ask the question: what happened and when did it happen that fat slobs are now a thing in my United States Army?  Vindman?  Milley?  This needs to stop.  Navy?  OK – they are desk jockeys primarily and there is a tradition of out of shape Navy Officers that goes back to the founding.  We can even let certain Airforce Officers be tubby.  But the Army?  NO.  JUST.  NO.  We’re not having it.  Drop the donuts General and get your fat arse on the track.  Of note: the correlation between being fat/slovenly and being liberal/woke is extremely high.  Someone needs to check on Hayden – likely has a major paunch developing – and cankles.

You may have also seen that Admiral Michael Gilday, Chief of Naval Ops, has added anti-American socialist garbage to Navy reading lists.  What about winning wars, one may ask?  What about the Navy enduring a number of embarrassing accidents and incidents in the last 15 years, one may ask?  Perhaps its leadership devoid of principle or common sense?  Obsessed with democrat arse kissing instead of winning?

Swamp Generals exemplify group think.

‘If everyone is thinking alike, no one is thinking.’

                General George S Patton

Notice the Patton quotes?  What do you think he’d make of this sad crop of Generals?  Not much is my guess.  We quote him because he and men like Sherman, Grant, Pershing and Washington knew their jobs were to train our troops to do difficult, hard things in the worst of circumstances.  And to win.  Where did we go wrong?  Who derailed this tradition?

“War is cruelty. You can’t refine it.”
― William T. Sherman

Here is some free advice for our senior military leaders, which they should already know, but apparently don’t:

  • If it doesn’t increase our readiness and warfighting effectiveness, don’t do it
  • Don’t bad mouth the commander in chief personally – it’s not your place and it’s conduct unbecoming – active or retired
  • Disagree on policy? Then have the stones to resign if you are active.  If retired, be professional, not personal
  • Check your ego; you report to civilians.  Deal with it General.
  • Stay in shape; set a proper example; don’t be a slob
  • If you haven’t won a war, you probably shouldn’t be talking smack about anyone.  You had one job.  You failed.
  • Pull your heads out.
  • Stop kissing woke democrat arse.

This one time active duty soldier has just about had it with today’s military leadership.

Liz Cheney, Bush-world and the Ash Heap of History

“…freedom and democracy will leave Marxism and Leninism on the ash heap of history.”

                Ronald Reagan, Speech to the House of Commons, June 8th, 1982

Despite recent efforts by Joe Hiden and the democrats to revive both of those ‘isms’, Ronald Reagan remains right.

And we add to the Ash Heap a number of other people and things that President Trump has helped modern Republicans understand and comprehend in the light of day.

Ladies and gentlemen, let’s celebrate the removal of Liz Cheney from house leadership and the official transfer of she, herself, her family business, and the entire franchise of establishment republicans to the ash heap of history!

Liz is over.  She’s shrieking like an angry demon as she is stripped of relevance.  She will be an MSM darling going forward.  But.  She is over.  Trump?  #NotOver !!

What else is over?

Country Club republicans also known as ‘Rockefeller’ republicans.  Wealthy republicans worried about their portfolios that went along with the republicans from a strictly economic perspective.  They do not care about offshoring of jobs and the working class.  They sold out to China to line their pockets long ago.  The Chamber of Commerce is their god.  Cheap imported workers are their preference, legal if possible but illegal will do just fine.  Trump called them out.  Many defected to the DNC.

“What does that get us? A discontented, lazy rabble instead of a thrifty working class. And all because a few starry-eyed dreamers like Peter Bailey stir them up and fill their heads with a lot of impossible ideas!”

          Mr Potter, from It’s a Wonderful Life, definitely a Rockefeller Republican

Bush-world:

George W: as analyzed in another column on this site, ‘Confessions of a Reformed and Redeemed W Voter’, W has soiled himself beyond recognition.  He’s over.  Trump?  #NotOver. 

Dick Cheney: his usefulness at its maximum was scaring and pissing off the democrats in the mid-00’s.  He was good at it.  Intelligent, concise, glib and sometimes humorous, Dick Cheney was the lightning rod of the W administration.  Unfortunately most, if not all, of his ideas have proven to be misguided at best, arrogantly stupid at worst.  He should have stayed at Halliburton.  Another non-serving war monger, devoid of proper training and strategic thought.  An intelligent idiot.

The Bush’s, despite their desperate attempts to pretend otherwise, are old money patrician class elitists.  Everyone has their place for the Bush’s.  For America’s working class, its pulling themselves up by their bootstraps with nothing after their jobs are shipped to the Bushs’ Chinese business partners.

Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, Donald Rumsfeld: they blew it after the initial response to 9/11.  With no initial worry about outcomes, they started two wars with untested strategy.  Powell likely knew the flaws and kept his mouth shut.  Condi may be best remembered for posing for a buddy shot with Muamar Khadhafi.  Dope.  Rummy’s shock and awe turned out to be a tactic, not a strategy.  The glib technocrat will go down in history as the arrogant ass that screwed it all up.

Bush-World enablers: Boehner, Mitch McConnell: Republican congressional leaders were very comfortable with the Bush traditions, the lack luster results, the sell out of the American worker.   They themselves have proven to be in their roles for money, not service.  Slobs, hypocrites and sellouts.

Why did it never occur to Bush-world that their jobs were to maximize the success and potential of the American people – all of them?  Why did they enable the communist dictatorship of China?  Why did they offshore our jobs and then blame us?  Because they never got it and can’t get it.  They don’t relate.  Never did. 

Michael Chertoff.  John Snow.  John Bolton.  Hank Paulson.  Alberto Gonzales.  Elaine Chao.  Tom Ridge All of them swampy swampians.  Retreads.  Non-leaders.  Apparatchiks.

Bush-worlders.   They are over.  Trump?  #NotOver !!

In the 2000’s Bush-world had the vexing problem of being the only alternative to DNC chaos.  On the surface they seemed like the adults in the room.  They had a veneer of competence.  That competence was for a world gone by.  The 1970’s specifically.  Otherwise they were completely unprepared for what dawned in the 21st century.

Trump woke up conservatives.  He made it respectable to care for our working brothers and sisters that were forgotten.  The Trump coalition is bigger and broader than anyone realizes.   You know the stats from the Trump coalition in 2020.  The demographic changes terrorize the DNC.  Blacks will be 50% for Trump in 2024.   Latinos will be 70% for Trump.

Romney? He sucks!”

                Obama Phone Lady

Mitt Romney, Adam Kinzinger, Paul Ryan, the McCains and many more – they all play a nasty game of arse kissing with the same media that have called them racists and grandma killers in the past.  One wonders why they are compromised?  What do they have on them?

RINO’s are over!  Trump? #NotOver !!

Members of The Hot Tub from Hell:  Frank Luntz, Karl Rove, George Will, Bill Kristol, David Gergen, All Lincoln Project members, Anthony Scaramucci, and most fired Trump Administration personnel.  They are the worst of the worst bottom feeders.  Mostly devoted to themselves and the lousy books they write for the feeble minded.  A sad group of diaper wearing, increasingly irrelevant clowns.

The Hot Tub from Hell is OVER!  Trump?  #NotOver !!

What else is over?  Please share below, fellow Patriots!

Confessions of a Reformed and Redeemed W Voter

=26

Dateline April 20, 2021

“I think we agree, the past is over. ”
― George W. Bush

 

That’s right W, and for that we are thankful.

As W has inserted himself in the national conversation of late, so let’s recap where many of us have landed on the teetotaling son of another President with a dubious record.

“Never trust a man who doesn’t drink.”

  • Winston Churchill   (OK maybe a cheap shot, but he’s earned it)

We wanted him to succeed.  In fact in the immediate wake of 9/11 even many democrats felt reassured that ‘the adults were in charge’ following 2 terms of Bill, Hill, Monica, White Water, Clintoncide, Hillary Care, Co-presidents, Vast Right Wing Conspiracies, a failed impeachment and the generally tawdry atmosphere of the Clinton Whitehouse.

Americans wanted ass kicked after 9/11.  W delivered.  Box checked.  However,  I believe it was Colin Powell at the time who said with regard to screwing up a war, ‘If you break it, you bought it.’  Did we ever.  Powell deserves to be held accountable for letting Rumsfeld drop his ‘Powell Doctrine’, built on lessons learned from Vietnam on how to win wars.  Powell’s doctrine was used in the first Gulf War: overwhelming force.  It worked.  See the ‘highway of death’.  He let Rummy screw it all up in the 2nd Gulf War.  An unending disaster ensued.

But we digress, back to W.

13 years post W, with plenty of help from truth teller Donald J Trump, most republicans and conservatives have been red pilled on W.  Eyes now wide open.

In 2001:

We thought we got a republican Harry Truman.  Instead we got a less demented, sometimes confused and togue tied republican Joe Biden.  As George H.W. might have said: ‘Not good!  Bad!’

We thought we got a more conservative George HW, less enthralled with the New World Order.  Instead we got China sellout 2.0, post Clinton, letting the offshoring spread like a plague while telling Americans we weren’t competitive.  Blaming us while giving our jobs to communists paying 1 cent on the dollar to their slave laborers.

We thought we got a happy warrior – the one that unseated loudmouth Ann Richards in TX.   Instead we got an oddly passive mopey W who refused to answer his critics, who in turn just piled on.  This passivity let down his voters and his party, and enabled the attack mob CCP-partner media we now have firmly in place.

We thought we got a down home, red neck, rootin tootin, kinda funny, ranch owning, pick up truck driving old son of a gun character as President.  What we really got was a Yale educated elitist faking it as a cowboy.

“The thing that’s important for me is to remember what’s the most important thing.”
― George W. Bush

W lucked out with stiff retreads to campaign against.  Gore and Kerry – unappealing scolds that allowed W’s charm, such as it was, to shine.  He was very likeable – we must give him that.

And funny at times: It’s a shame he only gave mean nick names only to his immediate staff: Skippy to Cheney due to his heart issues.  Turd Blossom to Karl Rove for obvious reasons.  Tiny to Richard Armitage, chubby Deputy Secretary of State.   It took a fearless champion to give nicknames to the dummies that truly deserved them in the media, democrat party etc: Donald J Trump.  His were better.

W’s largest mistakes were his foreign wars.  We have plenty of recent history that showed how to lose foreign wars: Vietnam with no clear strategy, incrementalism, and little home support.  And how to win: first Gulf War: Clear goal, Powell doctrine of overwhelming force.  Having some military background himself, W should have been wiser.  Rumsfeld, seemingly a good choice at first, turned out to be the worst of the worst technocrat.  Shock and Awe didn’t prevent us from an unmanageable mess in Iraq upon our march into Baghdad.  Such lousy execution from pedantic bigmouth Rumsfeld should have got him fired.

Remember the disappearance/retirement of General Shinseki after he told the truth about necessary troop levels needed to occupy Baghdad?  Shameful.

W’s biggest mistakes involved listening to career bureaucrats (the swamp) and taking them at their word.  The ‘de-Bathification’ of Iraq was a disaster.  Others can cover that topic better than I can.

The so called surge was late.  And necessary due to bungled strategy and poor execution.

Interesting that most of the career military officers, especially the General Officers, that have criticized Trump publicly, were key leaders in the failed foreign wars started by W.  Clearly their motivation is fear of their malfeasance being exposed, and resentment of Trump’s accurate criticism.

The ineptitude of Iraq/Afghanistan wars is settled business.  I believe the intention was to get to root causes in the region and permanently settle them.  Clearly that did not happen.  Let’s move on.

Remember when W fired Rummy in 2006, openly admitting it was because he lost congress and they (the Dems) wanted someone less controversial.  I am not Rummy fan, but really?  What kind of reasoning is that?  Fire him and take responsibility for it.  Sad.

Remember when Bush cut taxes and it really wasn’t even that much and he let the business tax stand which really was the big issue even then?

This all seems like a million years ago.  Pre-tech monopolies and censorship.  It is actually a bit hazy.  Like many, W did some good things.  But they were lost under a pile of incompetence.

“They misunderestimated me.”
― George W. Bush

Remember the embrace of globalism and so called free trade with W, a stupid republican hallmark for decades.  The problem is free trade was never free or fair.  But the Chamber of Commerce loved it as they lined their pockets while American workers got screwed.  ‘Compassionate Conservative’ W was ok with that.

Remember when W said he wouldn’t comment on his successor due to the dignity of the office, and proceeded to let Obama blame him for every bad condition that has ever existed without a word?  And remember when Trump made mincemeat of his dopey brother Jeb, W decided to join the chorus of A-holes taking shots at Trump?  Yeah.   I do.  Shove it W.

The other things are many: bailouts, Hurricane Katrina optics and execution, whatever.  Massive media misinformation had become a thing.  W is a classic example of missed opportunities, unmet expectations, investment in failed models, faith in the swamp, disguised elitism, groupthink, failed strategy setting, unwillingness to change quickly when things are not working.  Stubbornness.   We wanted him to win but he didn’t let himself.  He tried to act like the common man, but helped give birth to the forgotten man (and woman).

Finally, I’ll say it as much as it pains me.  On 9/11 when W sat there as long as he did after Andy Card told him we were under attack, and let the kids keep reading, it did suck and was embarrassing.  It pissed me off when Media Hippopotamus Michael Moore made hay with it, but on that, he was right.  Nuts.  W may have needed time to think, but he could have done that in private.  Gracefully exiting quickly was the thing to do.  WTF.

“It will take time to restore chaos”
― George W. Bush

W – you had a good life as TX governor and part owner of the Rangers.  You should have stayed.

BASEBALL, HOT DOGS, APPLE PIE AND CHEVROLET

=28

Dateline April 13th, 2021    North Carolina

  “Yankee Mike”

Well, at least Hot Dogs, Apple Pie and Chevrolet are still part of our great American Heritage! Sadly, Major League Baseball once considered to be “America’s Past Time” has dropped from the list of iconic Americana. Baseball was featured for decades in great American TV & Radio Commercials as uniquely American, patriotic, wholesome, fun and unifying. The title of this essay was taken from a very popular Chevrolet commercial from the mid – 1970s. Allot has changed since then, especially lately, and not for the good of the sport or the nation.

Many of us baseball loving fans grew up with a bat and a ball in our hands. We came from all walks of life and all economic classes. We were raised by God-fearing & patriotic men and women. We kneeled before our Lord and Savior & we stood for the Star Spangled Banner.

In many cases, our parents had put their lives on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy. They fought to protect our way of life and to safeguard us from the evils that reigned supreme in other parts of the world. When faced with the tyrrany of dictators, genocidal maniacs and the spread of Socialism and Communism, American generations have risen to the challenge of defeating “all comers”.

Throughout much of the 20th Century and up until now, there has always been at least one “Safe Place” to rest our weary minds from the bad news of the day. That Safe Place is otherwise defined as Major League Baseball; a place where one can get lost in the game and harken back to one’s youth to remember one’s own passion for the game while rooting for a particular sports hero to come through in the pinch for you when the game is on the line.

That safe place has been a safe harbor and a refuge from troubles at home, from war and from politics. Major League Baseball has served as a unifier among very diverse groups of people. Just go sit in Yankee Stadium for a game and take in the diverse crowd of people sitting all around you and representing every race, color, creed, gender, nationality and language that one can imagine. Everyone there has one thing in common: pulling for the Home Team to win ! New friendships are made with the crack of a bat. Race as an issue never enters into the atmosphere at the ballpark. The mosaic of the diversity of the fans represented at the ballpark only makes for an even more enjoyable experience as one’s fellow fans realize that there is more uniting us at the ballpark than dividing us.

Sadly, Commissioner Rob Manfred has chosen badly. He has thrown his lot in with the Radical Leftists, the Marxists & the Communists hiding under the guise of BLM & Antifa. They have found him to be a Dim Bulb, a Soft Target, an ill-informed Dupe and a Coward. Not satisfied with the destruction of the NBA & the NFL, the Democrat Stormtroopers have successfully placed their MLB Trophy in the Media’s Display Case.

Stacey Abrams has nicely filled the role of Darth Vader as she continues to leave a swarth of destruction in her sizeable path. Let’s not forget, however, that she is simply the spearhead for a much more sinister purpose and that is “The End of Free & Fair Elections” in the state of Georgia and all across the nation.

“Komisar Manfred” rolled over nicely like a dog awaiting his treat for successfully completing his trick. He pulled the “Mid Summer Classic” from “racist” Atlanta & “racist” Georgia faster than you can say “Archie Bunker”! And what, pray tell, makes Atlanta & Georgia so “racist” in the eyes and mind of Ms. Abrams? Why it’s the new Georgia state election laws that tighten up voting regulations and were recently passed by the State Legislature and signed into law by Governor Kemp to prevent the fraud and abuse that took place in the 2020 elections from ever happening again. How TURRIBLE ! as Charles Barkley might say.

Hey Stacey! From now on, mail-in ballots from the Dead, voting boxes stuffed with ballots from “Jin-nah” and Zuckerberg’s handy dandy “Drop Off Boxes” will be very limited or altogether prohibited. Oh, and by the way Stacey, Photo IDs will now be required. Maybe, Komisar Manfred will place your Photo ID on a baseball card for trading purposes among your fellow Stormtroopers!

Komisar Manfred has abandoned Atlanta for the snowy white peaks of the Rockies by placing the 2021 All Star Game in the “Mile High City” of Denver. Along with Komisar Manfred, the MLB Team Owners have shown themselves to be Eunucks of the First Order by allowing this travesty to take place.

It would have been far wiser for the team owners and MLB Executives to “channel” NBA great Michael Jordan who in 1990 was approached by Democrats who wanted him to support a black candidate running for a US Senate seat in North Carolina. Jordan refused. His comment? “Republicans buy sneakers too!” It would seem that Michael Jordan had it right more than 30 years ago while MLB is run by a bunch of DUMMIES!!!

Hey Komisar! Republicans buy baseball tickets too! They also buy lots and lots of team merchandise and food and beverage at the ball parks. They also buy team apparel and ball caps online. They also watch the games on MLB Pay for View and stream lots of other games. By taking the ill-informed actions that you have taken, you have aligned Major League Baseball with the Radical Left and alienated the vast majority of your fan base.

MLB has disenfranchised the working poor who work at its SunTrust Ballpark Concession and Souvenir Stands. You have gravely injured many of the small business owners in the surrounding communities who worked for months to support and to prepare in earnest for the All Star Game. Those small business owners borrowed money in most cases in the hope of turning a profit on a once in decades event. MLB beginning with the Commissioner’s Office has shown woeful poor judgement throughout this self-inflicted wound and the sport does not deserve support from its paying, patriotic fan base.

Worst of all, Major League Baseball has immersed itself in politics, again ! Last year was more than enough to endure watching millionaire ballplayers take a knee in solidarity with the Marxist BLM movement which declared war on the nuclear family. I have no intention of supporting Marxists or other people that support Marxists……including sports figures and athletes. Marxism / Communism is anathema to the American character and all that we stand for as Americans. We fought and won a long Cold War to get rid of this scourge only to find it has been revitalized on the nation’s college campi and is being spread by “educated” twits who have no understanding of our great American History. It has now reared its ugly head in the MLB Commissioner’s Office and in the “Woke Corporations” of America.

Major League Baseball has decided to pick a winner on a political battlefield. And for this there must be consequences. The Komisar’s Office has exposed its Team Owners to what certainly will be a loss of revenue and fans. The losses have begun with an immediate loss of respect for the Commissioner’s Office, the 30 Team Owners who were in the circle of decision makers and for your decisions to accept being bullied by one political party over another. The National Political Scene has NO place in Baseball.

My counter to your poor choices is to reject Major League Baseball until the time of your resignation. Personal apologies from all 30 Team Owners would be nice also in light of their enabling your poor choices. Until that time comes, here is what I plan to do:

  • I will not attend a MLB Game
  • I will not spend money on Food or Beverage at a MLB Game
  • I will not purchase MLB Team Apparel, Gear, Caps, etc. online or in stores
  • I will not purchase the products of MLB sponsors
  • I will not watch televised MLB Broadcasts
  • I will not listen to MLB Radio Broadcasts
  • I will not watch livestreamed games

I would encourage all readers to take similar measures in order to drive down MLB’s revenue stream. We need to send a strong message to the “Powers-to- Be” that we will not be part and parcel to the self-destruction of our country. We will not be bullied by those who think that they know better than we do. We will not be the “Sheeple” that the Leftist Loons prefer us to be and allow our country to be taken from us by those who would destroy our way of life.

The NBA, the NFL, MSM stalwarts ABC, CBS, NBC, and Cable News providers CNN, MSNBC, and FNC have all seen their advertising revenues fall as their viewership has plunged. They are all “woke” and going broke! Its time for Komisar Manfred and MLB to feel the pinch !

As a lifelong Yankees fan, it is heart breaking to leave the team of my youth and my dreams. However, I take solace in the fact that George Steinbrenner, the Yankees owner during periods of some of the team’s greatest success, was actually born on the 4th of July and did his level best to honor America and our flag. One can only hope that we rediscover our greatness as a nation and that our sports teams learn to stay out of areas of debate where they have no business.

It’s God, Country, Family First for me! Those who disparage our nation and turn against its laws have no seat at my table.

2020 Big Dummies of the Year – They Earned it!

=49

By Pershing Soldier                                            17 January 2021

Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the universe.
Albert Einstein
 
Note to readers: 2020 revealed so many dummies, that your favorite dummy may not be included here.  We invite you to list any missing dummies in the comments section below.  Also note: not all democrats are dummies, but most of those who vote for them are in fact, Big Dummies.  
Its that time, fellow patriots, when we sit down and discern the epic failures, hilariously inept and true buffoons amongst us.  2020 provided an eruption of Big Dummies that is historic.  Let’s get to work.
These will be in no particular order as the dummies themselves are in no particular order.
Bret ‘Buffet Table’ Baier, Martha ‘McStupid’ MacCallum and Chris Wallace are our headliners.  These three as well as many other enablers have destroyed Fox News.  There has not been a more spectacular epic fail in television than the Fox News election night implosion.  It will never be matched.  A wicked combination of hubris, isolation and yes, stupidity, resulted in a near 20 year streak of #1 ratings dropping to a distant #3 over night.  And no one has been terminated. Wow.  Just.  Wow.  Congrats Newsmax and OAN – don’t screw this up.  Big Dummy parade at Fox News, especially in the board room.
While we are on cable news, special mention for previous Big Dummy awardee Jeff Zucker at CNN for allowing Project Veritas to invade their daily conference calls, and confirm to the planet that they are the PR wing of the DNC. Big Dummy!!
Is there such a thing as an effective Big Dummy?  Maybe,  Human dirigible and Waffle House terrorist Stacey Abrams managed to pull off a second round of election fraud in Georgia with everyone watching.  Historically conservative GA elected two communists with her leadership, a person claiming to be the legitimate governor of the same state for the last 4 years wile not in office.  Stacey is seemingly, an effective Big Dummy.  She is however, aided by two ineffective Big Dummies, Governor (real one) Brian Kemp, and Secretary of State Brad Raffensberger.  Both are insanely inept and possibly corrupt.
He had just about enough intelligence to open his mouth when he wanted to eat, but certainly no more.
― P.G. Wodehouse
(Stacey??????)
While we are on governors, loud mouth commie Andrew Cuomo of NY must be singled out as the Big Dummy he is.  Nursing home deaths, arrogance, leftist policies and an emptying state define this buffoon.  All problems are blamed on others, enabled by a sycophant press that lets him beat on them.  See @realtina40 for the best analysis on #CCC Governor Cuomo.  When you ask yourself how an unpleasant asshat like Cuomo can be elected, the answer is simple: leftist democrats aka Big Dummies.
 
RE: BLM and Antifa – we just offer this quote from George Carlin.  That’s all they get and the deserve much less:
Never underestimate the power of stupid people in large groups.
Knocking Bill DeBlasio aka Warren Wilhelm to the side, temporarily, for Biggest Dummy of all Mayors is Ted Wheeler of Portland, who enabled Antifa/BLM and is also hated by them.  He’s also admitted the shambles his city is in is his fault.  Wow.  But then right there with him is Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan, who you may remember referred to the cesspool known as the CHOP as a ‘summer of love’.  Maybe, if love includes raw sewage, destruction of private property  and rampant theft.  Big Dummy!
In politics, stupidity is not a handicap.
Napoleon Bonapart
There are so many examples of really dumb DNC products roaming around, but lets pick a few of the legends:
Eric Swalwell: notorious on-air farter, inept presidential candidate and now we learn, colluder with the CCP through his paramour, Fang Fang.  Huge Big Dummy and we grant him Big Dummy Hall of Fame status this year.  (incidentally, the current members of the Big Dummy Hall of Fame are Joe Biden, Al Gore and Paul Krugman, so Swalwell joins some lofty company)
Kamala Harris: a dope unliked by even democrats. Lies about most subjects continuously.  Sad.
Emanuel Cleaver: the Missouri congressman is the one who said ‘Amen and Awoman’ at the end of his opening prayer in the house chamber.  He joins legendary Big Dummy Rep Hank Johnson who infamously worried about the island of Guam capsizing due to overpopulation while questioning an Admiral during a committee meeting.  You can’t make this kind of Big Dummy behavior up.
Kim Gardener, the City Attorney of St Louis, must get a mention here for harassing the McCloskeys after they protected their property with their guns.  You may not know that just this past December a circuit judge removed Gardener and her entire team from the case because she used it for campaign fundraising.  The fact that this slob, and yes, Big Dummy, holds the position she does, is a bad sign for the nation.  Another Soros backed disaster.
Irony is wasted on the stupid 
― Oscar Wilde
Indeed Mr Wilde, indeed.  And there is a group of pinheads that don’t see that the very free internet that made their fortunes possible now allows them to practice tyranny, which will eventually put them out of business.  Fascinating and stupid.  So, sociopaths Jack Dorsey and Mark Zuckerberg, bald dic pic king Jeff Bezos, technoboob Sundar Pichai of Google and sniveling coward Tim Cooke of Apple have all made the Big Dummy list simultaneously.  They are admittedly smart, but they are also stupid, and do not know history.  They are also fairly destructive toward their businesses and stock holders.  If you hold stock in these institutions, it might be time to dump it.  Alternatives are emerging every single day.  Patriots reject censorship and tyranny regardless of whom it is directed toward.   Further, there is a valid question about the collusion these men took part in to take down a competitor (Parler).  This is not over.  Quick unrelated note, deep research reveals Jack Dorsey practices personal hygiene habits learned from Rep Ilhan Omar. 
This list would be incomplete without Dr Fauci’s inclusion.  He was against masks before he was for them, enjoys being feted by Big Media doofuses and, generally speaking, has been turned into a fake celebrity by those same doofuses.  While he’s more of a Doctor than Jill Biden, its fair to say we all trust Dr Pepper more than both of them.   Dr Scholl’s too.
We have another entrant into the Big Dummy Hall of Fame this year, along with Swalwell, and that is none other than Speaker Nancy Pelosi.  She’s earned this honor by down grading the impeachment process into a cheap threat, a misused tool and a Presidential traffic ticket.  The president she impeached the first time received more votes than any other sitting president in history.  The newest impeachment scheme reveals Pelosi for the malevolent scheming demon she is. Regardless, thinking Americans are dismissing this tactic and moving on.  The backlash will be noteworthy.  By the way, add to her Stalinist reign in the House her infamous ‘Come to Chinatown’ speech as the pandemic was starting and her hypocritical ‘blowout’ in SFO while the nation was locked down. Enjoy the HoF, Madam Speaker, I’d like to say you’re in good company, but its more like stupid company.  You earned it.
When a great genius appears in the world you may know him by this sign; that the dunces are all in confederacy against him.
― Jonathan Swift
New to the list this year: Republicans! You know the ones.  The disloyal.  The mercenary.  The selfish.  I’ll list a few of the most notorious that were there to abandon Trump immediately.  These are in addition to the two China payees from Georgia already mentioned.
Liz Cheney, on orders from her old man, who’s offended that Trump criticized the unresolved and ineffective wars he helped to start.  the Wyoming GOP has already signaled that this Big Dummy is finished.
Adam Kinzinger, who’s made himself the darling of the leftist mob by criticizing the president.  Mental Lightweight.  Big Dummy.
Mitt Romney.  Big Dummy.
Lyndsey Graham, the most insipid, desperate for attention buffoon, always destroys any good he does with disloyalty.  He just can’t STFU.  Ever.  Big Dummy.
Mitch McConnell betrayed the President quickly, followed by his wife, Elaine Chao.  Both, Big Dummies.  Thinking patriots see through them.  Mitch won his term with Trumps’s help.  Its likely his last.  Let’s hope the old republican party leaves with him.
Are there more Big Dummies out there?  Yes.  Too many.  Its insane.  In the first list back in 2018 we listed most of the media under their networks – otherwise the list would run for too long.
The many retired General Officers in the beltway weighing in on politics should also be added, with Michel Hayden as their poster boy.  Sad angry swamp buffoons.  You’d think they all won a war or something to have that kind of confidence, wouldn’t you?  But they didn’t.  They FAILED.  Big Dummies all.
Let’s end with a quote for all of the dummies mentioned above – and as noted – nominate and recognize your own list of dummies in the comments.
If your brains were dynamite there wouldn’t be enough to blow your hat off.
― Kurt Vonnegut

NUTS!!!

=62

Missouri Territory            19 November 2020 

By @PershingSoldier on Twitter/Parler

Army General Anthony McAuliff –   the acting division commander of the 101st Airborne Division troops defending Bastogne, Belgium, during World War II’s Battle of the Bulge, famous for his single-word reply of “Nuts!” in response to a German surrender ultimatum.

I suppose it was destined to come to a moment like this.  The ultimate battle of our outsider President against the Swamp, the establishment and the growing octopus that the Stalinist Left has become.  He’s in a similar place the good General quoted above was in, encircled by a desperate evil force.

One man stands, almost alone, leveraging all of the tools and strength he has, against the nauseating malevolence of multiple corrupt institutions.

He is all we have, while we wait for the Senate to be settled.  A weakened Pelosi house is still dangerous enough.

The leftist cabal is well funded, aligned, highly organized and completely anti-liberty.  ‘Progressive-ism’ has replaced any type of normal religious faith for most of its adherents. 

Our President has sent his General McAuliff message post-election: “I WON BY ALLOT!!!”  He’s not conceding.  There will be no surrender.  He is re-grouping and assembling his most effective battle force.  Its taken some time.  MAGA world is loyal but frustrated.  The emerging facts are well covered by Sidney Powell, Giuliani and most recently Lin Wood.

American liberty stands at an historical precipice.  Lincoln’s short pre-civil war period as president comes to mind.  The insidious presidency of Woodrow Wilson looms as a warning, with its embrace of eugenics, covert racism and embrace of globalist ideals.   As Mark Levin has pointed out, leftist media is nothing new.  The ‘Party Press’ existed through much of the 19th century.  Their flirtation with professionalism was brief, mid 20th century.  In fact it’s debatable whether it ever happened.

Fellow patriots we are in a sobering place. 

“You, me or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life.  It’s not about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward.  That’s how winning is done!”

Rocky Balboa, from Rocky 6

We have a president who personifies this sentiment put forth by one of this author’s favorite fictional characters.  Donald Trump lives this sentiment vividly.  If there is ever evidence of someone showing up at exactly the right time in history, it may in fact, be him.  See ‘Is the Devine Hand Present’ on this website.

Can he pull it off?

“Do your damnedest in an ostentatious manner all the time.”

General George S Patton

Style matters little despite the MSM obsession with tweets and press conference ass chewings from President Trump.  (BTW – NY Gov Cuomo is 100 times more harsh and disrespectful with reporters and it goes unreported).  Many have observed similarities between General George Patton and Donald Trump.  Patton, a man of salty and colorful language, was sidelined for slapping a soldier that reported battle fatigue with no injuries.  The press brutalized him.  Eisenhower quietly redeployed him to command of an army him when it was time to win the war in Europe.  He delivered.  Trump like Patton is now down.  It will not be for long.    

The President’s two most valuable lieutenants are Rudy Giuliani and Sidney Powell.  Their ability to collect testimony of patriots and protect them in the process is critical.  We must hold on.

The Republican Party is still adrift with the disloyal, the self-interested, the unreliable and the stench of John McCain.  Slowly it seems to be coalescing in support of the President.  GOP Chairwoman Rona McDaniel gets credit for holding the line.  Unity is about to become critical in importance.

The Press has eagerly been resurrecting Fake Swamp Rules of late.  They include:

  1. Don’t exercise your constitutionally granted power; see the recent SCOTUS frackus which President Trump easily won
  2. You can’t fire anyone!  It’s the transition!!  Guess what, at 2 terminations and counting, POTUS gives no F’s about MSM misgivings about late term staff changes at the Whitehouse.
  3. You’re not President anymore!!!  It’s Biden!  Right now!!! This is the funniest.  The MSM is a complete clown show on this topic.  Not even worthy of analysis.  See Joy Ried and Stelter the Potato.

For all of us right now:

Beware Leftist/Stalinist Tools:

  • Fear
  • Covid
  • Masks
  • Lockdowns
  • Riots
  • Holiday elimination
  • Threats
  • Violence
  • Violent protest
  • Communist ideology
  • Free Stuff
  • Character Assassination
  • Social Media manipulation
  • Mass media manipulation
  • Disregard of the Constitution and Bill of Rights

Embrace Patriotic Conservative Tools:

  • Law
  • Courts
  • Freedom agenda
  • Benefits of work/jobs
  • Patriotism
  • Federalism
  • Innovation
  • Ingenuity
  • Private sector problem solving
  • Peaceful protests/assembly
  • Free speech
  • Legal ballots/one person one vote
  • Individualism
  • Winning
  • America First
  • Arm yourselves and protect your family

What must come next:

  • Patriots must infiltrate and take back our large institutions including all facets of education, government, social media, televised media, Hollywood and more.  We’ve avoided these and tended toward productive jobs in the private sector.  We’ve allowed ourselves to be undermined.  This must stop.
  • Support our President as he undertakes the greatest battle of his life.
  • BE HEARD: participate in websites like The 53rd Regiment.  Say what’s on your mind.  Loud mouth liberals never hold back.  They must be answered with confidence.  Their bad ideas, irrational outbursts and logical fallacies must be exposed and mocked.
  • Dump Fox News and switch to OAN, NewsMax or their websites.  Do not give Fox News ANY traffic.  Gutfeld, Tucker, Laura and the rest need to get up off their wealthy asses and do the right thing.  Leave.  They are not that good that they deserve slavish viewership.  That station helped undermine the election.  We saw it live.

That’s where we are RIGHT NOW, fellow patriots.  You know what to do.

December 23, 1776

THESE are the times that try men’s souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

To the Tyrants

=61

by Guardian 6                                       8 November 2020

While the leftist news media that is America’s Mainstream Media (MSM) has declared the presidential race for Joe Biden, a majority of Americans are both perplexed and shocked at this outcome. How can a failed 47 year politician that literally campaigned from his basement and failed to garner voter enthusiasm win? All things are possible when good men and women choose tyranny over freedom as they put this special constitutional republic that is America at risk. Dark forces are in play.

Tech Giants. To the Technology Giants that censored President Trump, news outlets and hid stories not favorable to Biden, you will suffer significant loss of market share and you will be met in court  with several class action lawsuits. A majority of Americans are sickened by statist tactics.

MSM. You openly favored Biden over Trump. You shaped the news for four years to attack President Trump, his family and his cabinet. Your tyranny weakened America and weakened our institutions. You created one fake news story after another as hit jobs on the president. America witnessed your elitist attitudes daily and now there is no doubt that you are true frauds. Foxnews, Drudge Report and the other conservative sell outs you will burn in hell. CNN, MSNBC and the Washington Post you are not worthy of comment.

Beltway Generals & Admirals. To the military career political types like James Clapper, Mike Hayden and Stan McCrystal your public contempt for the Commander and Chief sets a poor example to members of the Armed Forces, to their parents and their loved one’s and you have violated a basic tenet of Civil Military Relations failing to remain apolitical. Your egos and thirst to be loved by the swamp power class demonstrates your ultimate lack of character and candor. You are brazen failures.

Democratic Members of Congress. You put your party over our country. You set the country ablaze with the Russian Hoax, the Ukranian Hoax and your classless behavior toward the president. You are led by a tyrant in Nancy Pelosi who is an elitist out of touch with the American people. You are filled with hate and despise our individual liberties. You have bankrupted our country and the next generation with massive debt. You stuff your pockets with American wealth and live by a different set of rules. You are openly anti-American and the Squad actively undermines America. You personify empty barrels that make the most noise while failing to positively impact the lives of Americans. Adam Schiff is perhaps the greatest congressional tyrant in US history. He has lied unabashedly about President Trump  and putting the country through hell fully enabled by Speaker Pelosi. Pelosi and Schiff are sick, demented humans. Schumer, Nadler and the lot of them offer no answer, no solutions. Just hate and discontent. Power first and foremost, rules and good governance be damned. 

Robert Mueller, James Comey & John Brennan. In a different time not too long ago, you would be prosecuted for treason. You sold out our country, corrupted our institutions and promulgated false lies about our president. You personify the word tyrant. You are statists. You are not Americans. You are not patriots. You disgust a majority of Americans. You are tools of the swamp and masters of deception. Hell awaits you three self righteous assholes.

Hammer & Scorecard Tyrants. If you deployed these tools of war in this election, or previous one’s, you will be caught. I know having gotten away with all you have against President Trump you feel invincible. You are not. Eventually, good people will come forward before you Clintoncide them. You are destroying our republic and show such little regard for your fellow citizens. You will be caught. We know who you are and we know this software has likely been deployed to manipulate the vote. Justice is coming.

Stooges. I do not know what you are getting paid to manipulate the vote count in Philadelphia, Atlanta, Detroit, Milwaukee, etc. but you have sold your soul and sold out your country. Is it worth it? The Democratic Machine is soulless and full of tyrants.

Project Lincoln & RINOs. Nobody likes disloyal assholes like you. Nobody likes you. Nobody!

China. You now have your Manchurian candidate Joe Biden. You took Hong Kong and many of us suspect you have a plan to attempt to take Taiwan within the next couple years. Is this the blackmail price for Joe Biden’s silence? You unleashed a virus on the western world to destroy our economies, weaken President Trump and to overtake the US economy. You are counting on Joe Biden to tolerate China’s rise to economic, space and military dominance.  Xi JinPing you overplayed your hand. Badly. I leave it there for now. There are many more Americans than Stooges and Sellouts. JinPing, just remember the word, “Badly,” asshole.

To my fellow American patriots, I am like you still processing the bold, criminal undermining of our election system. I trust President Trump and many of the good people that surround him. We know this election was sytematically stolen from us. Day by day the President lost votes each night in the cover of darkness with poll watchers blocked from observering. Now is a time to stand with President Trump and push back against the Mob. I for one will do that. America First!

A Time For Choosing

=70

by Guardian 6                                       27 September 2020  

“You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on Earth, or we will sentence them to take the last step into a thousand years of darkness.”  — Ronald Reagan Oct 27, 1964

The choice is very clear. On the left you have Joe Biden, a 50 year politician with a vacant legislative record that served as Obama’s VP. On the right you have Donald Trump, a brash successful business man that has a record of accomplishment as President of the United States. It is a time for Choosing.

On the left they want to fundamentally transform America into a socialist country. On the right they want to uphold America’s promise and the U.S. Constitution. President Trump has declared, “America will never be a socialist country.”

On the left they push an agenda of defunding the police and chant “no justice, no peace.” On the right the rule of law and law enforcement are supported and recognized as needed in a civil society for law and order.

On the left the Marxist Black Lives Matter movement marches in the street intermixed with destructive ANTIFA  elements destroying businesses and attacking people. On the right police organizations are trying to secure the peace along with National Guard and federal security elements to create space for lawful civil protests respecting individual rights.

On the left COVID19 has been weaponized to keep businesses and schools closed, to restrict public activities and to put Americans in masks. On the right mayors and governors are pushing to re-open businesses,  schools and sports to get  Americans back to work.

On the left the mask is a symbol of following the science and being responsible in stopping the coronavirus spread. On the right the mask is a symbol of repression and extremism in closing down America for political gain.

In Democratic run cities such as Portland, Seattle and New York City  mobs have taken control of the streets while their mayors defund police departments and order police to not engage rioters. Destruction of personal property, businesses and crime are souring. In Republican run cities calm, law and order are prevailing.

Democratic run states like California, Michigan and New York continue to mandate repressive laws restricting businesses from opening and denying individual rights. Republican run states like Florida, Ohio, and South Dakota are open for business and getting on with the business of America managing to mitigate the ChinaVirus.

On the left the Mainstream Media and Hollywood backs Biden. On the right the Forgotten Man and Deplorables back Trump. While the left screams for one false investigation after another, the right just drives on with the business of America.

While Biden campaigns from his basement with highly orchestrated scripted events and conducts interviews with a teleprompter, Trump  campaigns at an aggressive clip holding MAGA Rallies and interviews throughout the country.

America has reached a crossroad. Socialism vs. Constitutional Republic. Tyranny vs. Liberty. Biden vs. Trump.

America, It Is A Time For Choosing. 

Great American Speeches – Pardon of Richard Nixon

=70

Great American Speeches Series — Announces Pardon of Richard Nixon,  Oval Office … September 8, 1974

Gerald R. Ford, 38th President (1974-1977)

Ladies and gentlemen:

I have come to a decision which I felt I should tell you and all of my fellow American citizens, as soon as I was certain in my own mind and in my own conscience that it is the right thing to do.

I have learned already in this office that the difficult decisions always come to this desk. I must admit that many of them do not look at all the same as the hypothetical questions that I have answered freely and perhaps too fast on previous occasions.

My customary policy is to try and get all the facts and to consider the opinions of my countrymen and to take counsel with my most valued friends. But these seldom agree, and in the end, the decision is mine. To procrastinate, to agonize, and to wait for a more favorable turn of events that may never come or more compelling external pressures that may as well be wrong as right, is itself a decision of sorts and a weak and potentially dangerous course for a President to follow.

I have promised to uphold the Constitution, to do what is right as God gives me to see the right, and to do the very best that I can for America.

I have asked your help and your prayers, not only when I became President but many times since. The Constitution is the supreme law of our land and it governs our actions as citizens. Only the laws of God, which govern our consciences, are superior to it.

As we are a nation under God, so I am sworn to uphold our laws with the help of God. And I have sought such guidance and searched my own conscience with special diligence to determine the right thing for me to do with respect to my predecessor in this place, Richard Nixon, and his loyal wife and family.

Theirs is an American tragedy in which we all have played a part. It could go on and on and on, or someone must write the end to it. I have concluded that only I can do that, and if I can, I must.

There are no historic or legal precedents to which I can turn in this matter, none that precisely fit the circumstances of a private citizen who has resigned the Presidency of the United States. But it is common knowledge that serious allegations and accusations hang like a sword over our former President’s head, threatening his health as he tries to reshape his life, a great part of which was spent in the service of this country and by the mandate of its people.

After years of bitter controversy and divisive national debate, I have been advised, and I am compelled to conclude that many months and perhaps more years will have to pass before Richard Nixon could obtain a fair trial by jury in any jurisdiction of the United States under governing decisions of the Supreme Court.

I deeply believe in equal justice for all Americans, whatever their station or former station. The law, whether human or divine, is no respecter of persons; but the law is a respecter of reality.

The facts, as I see them, are that a former President of the United States, instead of enjoying equal treatment with any other citizen accused of violating the law, would be cruelly and excessively penalized either in preserving the presumption of his innocence or in obtaining a speedy determination of his guilt in order to repay a legal debt to society.

During this long period of delay and potential litigation, ugly passions would again be aroused. And our people would again be polarized in their opinions. And the credibility of our free institutions of government would again be challenged at home and abroad.

In the end, the courts might well hold that Richard Nixon had been denied due process, and the verdict of history would even be more inconclusive with respect to those charges arising out of the period of his Presidency, of which I am presently aware.

But it is not the ultimate fate of Richard Nixon that most concerns me, though surely it deeply troubles every decent and every compassionate person. My concern is the immediate future of this great country.

In this, I dare not depend upon my personal sympathy as a longtime friend of the former President, nor my professional judgment as a lawyer, and I do not.

As President, my primary concern must always be the greatest good of all the people of the United States whose servant I am. As a man, my first consideration is to be true to my own convictions and my own conscience.

My conscience tells me clearly and certainly that I cannot prolong the bad dreams that continue to reopen a chapter that is closed. My conscience tells me that only I, as President, have the constitutional power to firmly shut and seal this book. My conscience tells me it is my duty, not merely to proclaim domestic tranquility but to use every means that I have to insure it. I do believe that the buck stops here, that I cannot rely upon public opinion polls to tell me what is right. I do believe that right makes might and that if I am wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference. I do believe, with all my heart and mind and spirit, that I, not as President but as a humble servant of God, will receive justice without mercy if I fail to show mercy.

Finally, I feel that Richard Nixon and his loved ones have suffered enough and will continue to suffer, no matter what I do, no matter what we, as a great and good nation, can do together to make his goal of peace come true.

Now, therefore, I, Gerald R. Ford, President of the United States, pursuant to the pardon power conferred upon me by Article II, Section 2, of the Constitution, have granted and by these presents do grant a full, free, and absolute pardon unto Richard Nixon for all offenses against the United States which he, Richard Nixon, has committed or may have committed or taken part in during the period from July (January) 20, 1969, through August 9, 1974.

In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand this eighth day of September, in the year of our Lord nineteen hundred and seventy-four, and of the Independence of the United States of America the one hundred and ninety-ninth.
