Hoping President Trump Proves Me Wrong

All throughout the primaries and the campaign, I was never on the Trump train. I have never believed that Donald Trump was a decent man, a true conservative or that he was the right choice to lead our nation. I have written before about why I did not support him and his candidacy, so I will not rehash all that. At this point, it is time to let it go. Donald Trump will be the 45th president of the United States.

New presidential administrations always bring change and if Donald Trump fulfills his promises I have to believe this will be a change for the better. Obama’s socialist agenda and dictatorial decisions did much damage, but America has always been resilient when recovering from disastrous leaders who damaged our nation.

I have concerns about Donald Trump, that he is not a true conservative. During the campaign, he took conservative positions on many issues and made promises that were very […] → Keep reading

Obama Commutes Sentences for Drug Traffickers

On Thursday this week, the White House issued a press release saying that President Obama granted commutation to 72 federal inmates, a follow-up to the 98 commutations he granted last week. For his presidency, this is a total of 955 individuals, including 324 life sentences.

Part of the press release takes a shot at mandatory minimum sentences and calls for Congress to enact “broader reforms needed to ensure our federal sentencing system operates more fairly and effectively in the service of public safety.”

Hogwash.

Obama has now commuted the sentence for more federal prisoners than all other presidents since World War II combined. Reportedly, all of the prisoners were convicted of nonviolent drug offenses but some also were convicted for nonviolent weapons offenses.

White House counsel Neil Eggleston said in the press release, “The President is committed to reinvigorating the clemency authority, demonstrating that our nation is a nation of second chances, where mistakes from the past will not deprive […] → Keep reading

Is Oklahoma a ‘Backwards’ State?

Legislative sessions in Oklahoma are usually rife with contention, last-minute budget deals and unconventional bills and this year has certainly been no exception. With this year’s budget still being a huge question mark, cuts are already happening and many departments have already begun trimming staff. Medicaid, the earned income tax credit and education funding are issues making the news, along with non-budgetary items including abortions and school restrooms. Yes, restrooms.

Put it all together with a few other things and it’s apparently enough that some have labeled Oklahoma a ‘backwards’ state. A national laughingstock. An embarrassment. I have probably seen more negative articles and comments about Oklahoma and our legislature this year than any other. Articles such as the one titled “Oklahoma Continues Marching Backwards Into the 1950s With New Laws.” One column I saw shared frequently was from Ginnie Graham of the Tulsa World, who said, “Oklahoma sure had one embarrassing week.” It was pretty clear from her column […] → Keep reading

The Left’s Fascination With Che Guevara

Che Guevara was a Marxist guerrilla, communist, and murderer who led the Cuban revolution along with Fidel Castro, overthrowing Cuban dictator Fulgencio Batista and plunging Cuba into decades of harsh, communist rule. Since January 1, 1959 when Batista fled Cuba, Fidel Castro and his brother Raul have driven millions into exile, kept their country in political and economic chains and imprisoned, tortured and executed thousands of people. As soon as Fidel Castro seized power along with Guevara, they began conducting mass executions inside two Cuban prisons. The body count is unknown, but Guevara himself admitted to ordering the executions of thousands of Cubans during the first year alone. Some who survived their prison sentences later told of Guevara frequently murdering the condemned himself by shooting them in the head with his pistol.

Guevara was a cold-blooded killer who enjoyed murdering. He wrote to his father and said, “I really like killing.” He once fired his gun into the belly […] → Keep reading

Liberal Solution to Crime: Pay the Criminals

No doubt you’ve heard the idiom that ‘crime doesn’t pay. The Democrat-controlled city council of the District of Columbia is about to change that. In order to combat the rising crime rate, the council has decided that they will start paying criminals to not commit crimes. Paying criminals. With tax dollars.

Breitbart – Early this week, the city council unanimously passed a bill that would pay residents a stipend not to break the law. The council insisted the plan is a worthy expenditure of $4.9 million of the taxpayer’s dollars.The bill’s author, Democratic D.C. Councilman Kenyan McDuffie, claims the plan would curb violent crime and reverse last year’s 54 percent increase in murders.

Under the plan, each year, officials would pick 200 residents who are deemed to be at the greatest risk for committing or becoming victims of violent crime and put them in behavioral therapy and other programs. Once they complete the programs, they will be paid their stipend.

About That Empty Seat at the State of the Union

The White House has announced that there will be an empty seat next to Michelle Obama this evening at the State of the Union speech, to represent victims of gun violence. A White House official said the seat would be for “victims of gun violence who no longer have a voice – because they need the rest of us to speak for them.”

This isn’t all that surprising, considering the continuing war on guns and the 2nd Amendment that has been waged by this administration. Obama’s unconstitutional executive action on guns last week is just another assault on the right of citizens to be armed. The empty seat at tonight’s speech is a blatant appeal to emotion. Liberals have a history of using emotion, rather than pragmatism, to push their agenda and they’ve had success with that in the past. Pragmatism exposes liberal policies for the failures that they are and will never find a place in the liberal playbook.

If Liberals Had Total Control

Yesterday, I happened to overhear two coworkers discussing how much better off we’d be if conservatives would just disappear. I’m sure that would be a dream come true for them as liberals have always seen conservatism as a roadblock to utopia. With unfettered liberalism, our society would quickly become unrecognizable. It got me thinking just what they would do if liberals had no one opposing them. It’s a horrifying scenario.

Guns would be confiscated and destroyed. Not even the police would be allowed to have weapons. The only people left with weapons would be the criminals. And the jihadis. Abortion on demand, anytime, for any age, with no restrictions and one hundred percent taxpayer-funded. Minimum wage will be at least fifteen dollars an hour. All employers are now required to provide paid sick leave, vacation, family leave, and healthcare. Consequently, your burger will now cost you $24.99. Plus tax, of course. Government installations will be constructed along the border to […] → Keep reading

Gaystapo Continues Assault On Christianity

I’ve written numerous posts here in the last few years about the homosexual assault on Christianity and the success the Gaystapo is having with chipping away at the First Amendment right to the free exercise of religion.  Conservative Christianity is all that stands between them and the complete mainstreaming of their abominable lifestyles.  They have even acknowledged this fact.  Naturally, the Gaystapo will use every resource possible in their assault on conservative Christianity.  Every day it seems like there is something new that is being done somewhere in our country to further the homosexual war on Christianity.  With the Supreme Court’s legalization of homosexual marriage the assaults have been increasing.  I have no doubt it will get worse.  Let’s look at some of the things they have been up to lately.

If you’ve been reading my blog very long then you are well aware of the bakers in Oregon who found themselves under attack by the Oregon Bureau of Labor […] → Keep reading

Trump Is Right and He’s Done Republicans A Huge Service

Donald Trump’s comments about illegal immigrants seem to be dominating the news lately. The media have made it the story and have taken great glee in reporting about the backlash The Donald is receiving for what he said. Macy’s, Serta mattresses, Univision, NASCAR and NBC have all either cut ties with Trump or announced they will be terminating agreements with him. My first thought after reading all that was to wonder how in the world Donald Trump has his own line of Serta mattresses. Who would want that? But I digress. The Donald doesn’t seem to care about all the damage, saying on Fox & Friends, “I think it’s bad for my brand. I don’t care. You know maybe I’m leading in the polls, but this is certainly not good. I lose customers. I lose people.”

But what exactly was it he said that has made him the target of all this backlash? I’ve seen it misquoted on a few […] → Keep reading

Black Lives Don’t Matter

Since the acquittal of George Zimmerman in the death of Trayvon Martin, blacks and other liberals have thrown out the phrase ‘black lives matter’ all over social media, signs, broadcasts, graffiti and other places. When Michael Brown was killed in Ferguson after committing a robbery and attacking a police officer, the phrase received new impetus and has become a staple in the liberal lexicon. The people using it want everyone to believe that nobody cares about black lives but them. They use it as incitement to anger and justification for protests and riots, such as in Baltimore after the death of Freddie Gray. It’s a call to battle. A rallying cry. It’s a unifying phrase for blacks and liberals who decry ‘white privilege’ and the death of any black person at the hands of a white police officer, whether justified or not. But there’s just one problem with it.

They don’t mean it.

The ‘black lives matter’ meme is supposed […] → Keep reading
