Un-Presidented: The Democrats Bizarre Scheme To Undo 2016 Election

Corruption, Feature Posts, Politics
People who read my articles and follow my commentary online, know I have a favorite quote: “There’s nothing new under the sun, except the history you don’t know.” It’s attributed to President Harry S. Truman and it’s almost always accurate. Almost. What the House Democratic Caucus is attempting to do to this sitting president is beyond bizarre, it’s quite literally unprecedented.  If Nancy Pelosi, Jerry Nadler and Adam Schiff were an 80s band, they’d be called Parliamentary Maneuvers in the Dark (nod to all you OMD fans out there). While it’s true Article 1 authority on Impeachment is solely vested in the House of Representatives, nowhere does it say it’s solely invested in the Speaker, or any standing committee chair. The Founders were very deliberate that Impeachment be the last…

Fact sheet on Kavanaugh Process

Legal, Politics
Kavanaugh has been recommended for confirmation by the Senate Judiciary Committee by an 11-10 vote. There was no rider to that motion and no amendments were included. The committee process is over. It will not be calling more witnesses or addressing the background report upon conclusion, specifically. Clarence Thomas received a 7-7 committee, by comparison, not receiving recommendation. He was confirmed 52-48 with 11 Democrats voting yes in the majority. The delay requested last Friday in order to open a 7th FBI background check into Kavanaugh was agreed to and structured by McConnell and the WH. It was understood and confirmed by Flake, Collins and Murkowski that they were NO votes without extension. Any attempts to thwart that extension would have effectively ended the confirmation process. The FBI was given…

From Russia With Love

International, Media, News, Politics
If there’s an American left that’s not sick to death of hearing about Russia, chances are they work at CNN or NBC. Myself, I’m loathe to delve into the topic again at any level. After months of exhaustive research, endless testimony and multiple investigations, we have nothing to show any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. But it hasn’t all been a wasted effort. I did reacquaint myself with a little known, but clear case, of collusion between an American presidential candidate and the top levels of Russian government. The year was 1983. Democrats were eager to find a vulnerability with an emerging political icon in Ronald Reagan. Easier said than done. At this point in history, the Democrats were known to lean heavily on the sole remaining Kennedy…

Mueller Time? It’s Running Out…

Corruption, Feature Posts, Legal
Robert Mueller was tasked with the awkward, if not outright impossible mission of creating a crime that never happened. Worse, his very mission was conceived and prompted by his protege, James Comey, in order to justify, or cover up, what appears to be a conspiracy of historic proportions. Everything that has happened since is all a reverse engineering operation to legitimize an unethical and perhaps illegal government intrusion into a Presidential campaign. So many lines have been blurred, bent and crossed, that an exhaustive review is not only onerous, it’s an exercise in futility. A year ago, I preached that patience would be required for Trump supporters to weather this storm. Historical reviews of Deep State wars indicate that tactically they tend to prefer a game of graduated incrementalism. It’s…

Grounded Ambition: How Jeff Sessions’ Dream Job Became A Nightmare

Corruption, Feature Posts, Legal, News, Politics
Jeff Sessions is a good man. He’s a capable lawyer, and his pedigree goes far deeper in respected conservative legal circles than most realize. None but the most partisan would argue otherwise. It’s not a stretch to opine that Sessions is currently holding his dream job as Attorney General; a cosmic and drastic career turn for a partisan US Senator a few decades removed from being refused a federal judgeship in an ugly confirmation battle. His political gamble to back Trump early in 2016 paid off with the ultimate prize, but the strings attached formed a web of tangled loyalties and chaos. Things Jeff Sessions never saw coming... It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Sessions the most misunderstood man in Washington. He’s reviled by the left for his hardline…

MAGA: Ideological Evolution Ain’t Easy

Corruption, Feature Posts, News
If you are feeling a distinct and specific shift in the conservative political paradigm, it's not your imagination. If you're old enough, you remember the Goldwater revolution. If you remember the Reagan transformation of the GOP, you know where I'm going with this. As a conservative, you're at the front line of a new war for the soul of the movement. And, yeah, it requires picking a side. The process is unfurling at a dizzying and frenetic pace. Spurred by the cataclysmic failures of congressional leaders, a fleet-footed and flexible Donald Trump has turned Washington on its head. Just like that, everything is changing. A coup is in motion for the helm of conservatism and the future of the Republican Party. I, for one, have enlisted... And I know who…

The Politics Of Impeachment: Nixon’s Lost War Against Establishment Was Not In Vain

Feature Posts, Legal, News, Opinions, Politics
I've seen this movie before. As one who wasn't born in time to have witnessed the trials and tribulations of Nixon's presidency, I grew to consume the facts of the story voraciously later in life. There is no sufficient sole source account of Nixon's odyssey. You must commit yourself to a deep and comprehensive exploration of all available accounts and form a consensus from the collective works. If you undertake such an academic journey, you will see a pattern; a pattern of subversive and insidious attacks waged by the establishment on the presidency. I don't mean to imply merely attacks on the president, Nixon himself, but the entire executive branch. The war plan was executed with brilliant and reckless abandon, creating a pressured environment designed to force Nixon into falling…

Beware the Rainbow Retailers and the Sunshine Salesmen

Feature Posts, News, Politics
Winning isn't easy. Nobody ever said it was. Those in our movement who had false hopes of a little downward relief from the Sisyphean task of winning, must now admit the struggle will continue. We shall earn our victories only through laborious struggles and the dispatching of sheer political will. It will take time, and significant political pressure. For Donald Trump, the application of pressure and time is not a foreign concept, but dealing with a recalcitrant and unyielding adversary like Congress is something new. After all, he can't simply walk away from the negotiating table, not without surrendering his entire agenda. Indeed, we are outnumbered and outflanked on all sides by an enemy who has had 30 years to fortify their defenses. Our march will not be unabated, our…

Enough! Republicans Are Committing Assisted Political Suicide

Corruption, Feature Posts, Legal, Politics
Ever so subtly, the seeds of division are being sown within conservative circles. You, the Trump supporter, are the frog they are bringing to a boil. Sorry folks, this ain't a hot-tub. Who has their hands on the stove? Some readily known characters like Charles Krauthammer, Bill Kristol, Stephen Hayes and George Will; and some surprising new faces like Tucker Carlson, Ann Coulter and Newt Gingrich. The latter group is the most indefensible and dangerous to the cause. More importantly, and more to the point, the 800 pound gorilla in the Oval Office was never really the Russian adventures into the election. Instead, it is the shadow of a diminutive Jeff Sessions that is actually the culprit of this dreaded and interminable pall. There can be no mistaking this as…

Manufacturing the Blues: The Media’s Fight to Keep You Down

Feature Posts, Media
When did it all begin? When was the first moment the media transitioned from "Trump can't win" to "Trump won and we're screwed"...? I think we can look to the moment CNN and other networks began showing downward trending market futures while western state polls were still open. This dramatic and completely unprecedented intrusion by the media on our election process is the only real "collusion" that has been evidenced thus far. In Europe, they lock down all media and much of social media on Election Day, in some kind of pathological response to the fear of an educated voter. In America, it's the opposite. Our media inserted themselves into the election in ways never witnessed before, and they're not finished yet. Sure, we are all guilty of watching the…
