President Ronald Reagan said: “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Actor and former president of the National Rifle Association Charlton Heston, who called himself a “Kennedy Democrat,” switched to the Republican Party after the 1960s.
On racial preferences, JFK, in 1963, said he opposed them: “I don’t think that is the generally held view, at least as I understand it, of the Negro community, that there is some compensation due for the lost years, particularly in the field of education. What I think they would like is to see their children well-educated so that they could hold jobs and have their children accepted and have themselves accepted as equal members of the community. So I don’t think we can undo the past. In fact, the past is going to be with us for a good many years in uneducated men and women who lost their chance for a decent education. We have to do the best we can now. That is what we are trying to do. I don’t think quotas are a good idea. I think it is a mistake to begin to assign quotas on the basis of religion or race or color, or nationality.
The burning question facing every European country in 2017: can their countries and cultures survive endless refugee immigration from the ever-burgeoning Third World?
The salient question being ignored vs. not being asked in America, Canada or Australia: how will these homelands survive the projected 100,000,000 (million) refugees flooding into America within 30 years; 10,000,000 projected for Canada and another 10 million projected for Australia?

Ordinary black people cannot afford to go along with the liberal agenda that calls for undermining police authority. That agenda makes for more black crime victims. Let’s look at what works and what doesn’t work.
In 1990, New York City adopted the practice in which its police officers might stop and question a pedestrian. If there was suspicion, they would frisk the person for weapons and other contraband. This practice, well within the law, is known as a Terry stop. After two decades of this proactive police program, New York City’s homicides fell from over 2,200 per year to about 300. Blacks were the major beneficiaries of proactive policing. According to Manhattan Institute scholar Heather Mac Donald — author of “The War on Cops” — seeing as black males are the majority of New York City’s homicide victims, more than 10,000 blacks are alive today who would not be had it not been for proactive policing.

Read the judicial rules for radicals issued by the United States Court Of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, in affirmation of the ban on The Ban.
It follows the Executive Order issued by President Donald Trump, with the imprimatur of 62 million voters, to protect the nation from foreign terrorists entering into the United States. Two states objected to the president’s undeniably badly written Order, which, while upholding negative rights—and neither denying natural rights nor minting positive ones—was nevertheless replete with administrative errors.

The “Law and Order” president hits the ground running.
It is time that when the “compassion card” is brought out- the issue of compassion must first take into account the safety and well-being of America and Americans. There is nothing compassionate about committing suicide!
I urge you to get involved and demand our elected representatives actually represent us – We the People! The information contained in my article is being provided to educate as many of our fellow Americans as possible so that they can ask the right questions and make the appropriate demands on our political leaders and representatives and political candidates. Continue reading
The U.S. Code of Law is clear. Trump has complete authority to institute a ban on whomever he, as President, deems dangerous to Americans even if that includes ALL Moslems!
Liberal Activist Leftwing Anarchist judges are not ruling in accordance with the law, but usurping the power of the President. This is a direct violation of the Constitution and their oaths of office. Trump should not be waiting for them to adjudicate his Executive Order restricting travel from terrorist exporting nations. He should have Attorney General Jeff Sessions prosecute these judges and remove them from office. Continue reading

Like the proverbial elephant in the living room, the most powerful concern that Democrats never raised against Betsy DeVos following her confirmation hearing was her unwillingness to promise Democrats – during the hearing – that she would keep President Obama’s fraudulent narrative on the false campus rape crisis campaign against college men in the Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. Continue reading
Everything said about President Trump’s “Muslim ban” is a lie — including that it’s a Muslim ban.
The New York Times wore out its thesaurus denouncing the order: “cruelty – injury – suffering – bigoted, cowardly, self-defeating – breathtaking – inflammatory – callousness and indifference” – and that’s from a single editorial!
Amid the hysteria over this prudent pause in refugee admissions from seven countries whose principal export is dynamite vests, it has been indignantly claimed that it’s illegal for our immigration policies to discriminate on the basis of religion. Continue reading
Normally when an illegal garbage dump catches fire and causes serious damage to public property, the blame falls on the various government agencies responsible for public health and safety. In 1989, agencies in the State of New Jersey tried to close down an illegal dump in Newark that was underneath I-78 near the airport. They were blocked by a state court judge who held it was a “legitimate enterprise ‘that should be encouraged.'” Shortly thereafter, the garbage pile caught fire and caused the bridges above to buckle and the federal government had to spend millions of dollars to repair the damage. New Jersey’s chief justice described the episode as a “serious judicial error”. Here, the court, not the agencies, suffered the public wrath for causing a disaster that inflicted a traffic nightmare on the state. Continue reading
For years I have said that, at root, Leftism is really more religious than political. As a “religion” it usually manifests itself through political activism, but that activism is rooted in Leftist theology. If you want a brief description of Leftist theology you could sum it up with these three devout beliefs of those on the Left–Jesus is not the Christ; there is no such thing as original sin; and all private property is theft (except theirs).
Most Christians fail to grasp the theological implications of the Leftist worldview. All they see are the political events that transpire from that worldview and they never connect the dots that go from religious faith to political activism. Continue reading
Having taught at the University of California, Berkeley many years ago, I know exactly where last Tuesday’s riots occurred, as I crossed Sproul Plaza regularly (“Trump floats cutting off federal funds after Berkeley riots,” Web, Feb. 2). Further, as a very, very old-fashioned liberal, I believe that the true heart of a high-quality liberal arts education is exposure to and engagement with a wide variety of ideas covering all points of view.

As the consequences of losing control of the federal government seeps into their delusional entitlement, the ultimate statists of the Left scamper to find a method to regain power. A concept, whose day is gaining acceptance, is the Nation of Pacifica. With the incompatibility between the Trump Nation deplorables and the intolerant collectivists of Leftist state worshipers, the end game is rapidly approaching a final conflict that easily could erupt in a real civil war. Leave it to the beautiful people; their fantasia screen play scripts a peaceful dissolution of the disjointed union. A sample of their dialectic: Continue reading
Now that he has assumed the office of President and is actually trying to fulfill the promises he made to the American people (something most politicians never do) Donald Trump is beginning to find out just how deeply entrenched the “deep state” or the “shadow government” or whatever you care to call it, really is.

From an Oregon Resident:
While I was getting a coffee, I overheard 7 young people (22-26 years old, 5 males, 2 female) who have been protesting in downtown Portland the last two nights.
I told them I was doing research and asked nicely if they would answer some questions. They were cool with it, so I sat down and went for it.
Ø Three voted. Of the four who didn’t, none was registered to vote.
Ø None of them researched independently either candidate.
Ø All were for Hillary, but preferred Bernie.
Ø Why the Democratic Candidate? Continue reading
Here’s some in service education for Democrats, especially the Left Wing Lunatic Intellectual Morons called College Professors. If Left wing Media were honest brokers of information they would inform the populace about this law. Of course Left wing Media are nothing more than propagandist for the Democrat Party, so the people will remain uninformed.
What do ya know?…..I am sure that the Trump administration knows about this also. I wonder why they don’t ‘rub the democrats noses in it’ and shut them up.
Wouldn’t it be interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act of 1952?” I did not know of this Act until recently, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.

This is a genuine Ad from 1964 when WD-40 was first released.

United States residents voiced an uproar on social media over the opening of an abandoned Walmart in Brownsville, Texas, which a local television station reported is slated to serve as a taxpayer-funded shelter for an untold number of illegal aliens from across the Mexican border.
As Texas’ southernmost city – which is just a stone’s throw from Mexican border city of Matamoros – Brownsville is the latest location of a hotly contested border dispute, where a federally funded humanitarian group says the oversized vacated retail building will help teenaged youth who have arrived into the country illegally.

Along with Draining The Swamp in WDC – we need to DRAIN THE SWAMP of all the ILLEGALS whose mere presence costs each American in money, education, jobs, health care, – all of which should be charged back to the country they came from. The courts go after those who fail to pay SUPPORT for their children so WHY should some nation not have to pay for their ‘children’ who are illegally living in America??????? Think of the money that would come into American cities for all those ‘Sanctuary Cities’ who are now being ‘care givers’ for those foreign ‘children’. How many ILLEGALS and their Anchor babies are living in Chicago, Seattle, New York, etc., etc. The actual COST for each of them being sent to those foreign countries for America babysitting their ‘children’ might make them rethink the taking of those ‘children’ back to their home land, especially with the increase in the minimum wages now being paid to American workers. Think about that concept…
If Mexico think the border wall is bad he should think of having to PAY for all the Mexican ILLEGALS here in America drawing all those welfare type benefits and the pay for work they have drawn that belongs to LEGAL Americans. We need to get this idea to Pres. Trump
- BILL THE FOREIGN NATIONS FOR OUR taking care of their ‘children’
- Call it going after them for NON-SUPPORT… like we do absent fathers.
Who’s Lives Matter?
January 22 marks the 44th year since the U.S. Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, along with its companion case Doe v. Bolton, that purported to legalize killing a pre-born baby’s life-for any reason, at any stage of development.
Since that tragic day, more than 58 million innocent children have been brutally killed by abortion. Continue reading
The following by noted contributor, Neal Ross – was originally posted in response to another reader’s comments about the potential for a citizen uprising in America today – a ‘Revolution’ as it were. Neal’s’ assessment of the then and now situations is worth a single posting of it’s own. ~ J.B.
The problem, or difference as I see it between then and now is that back then with the third that was Tories they either relocated to England when America declared independence, or they accepted the outcome of the Revolution when we won. The other 33% went with the flow and would have continued as British subjects had we lost, or continued on as free Americans. It didn’t matter one way or the other to them. Continue reading
All the perplexities, confusion and distress in America arise, not from defects in their Constitution or Confederation, not from want of honor or virtue, so much as from the downright ignorance of the nature of coin, credit and circulation. ~ John Adams
Aside from those who don’t have much of it, money is one of those things people take for granted. People open their wallets, or purses, and pull out a couple pieces of paper/clothe and expect that they will be able to exchange it for a certain amount of goods or services. But what is that stuff you carry around and use to make purchases? Money you say? I don’t think so.
The Sixth Edition of Bouvier’s Dictionary of Law defines money as: gold, silver, and some other less precious metals. What you hold in your wallets and purses is currency; and you should at least know a basic history of how it came to replace real money. Continue reading
“The Populace Is Just As Stultified And Easily Distracted Now As It Was Then”
The year was 451, and the battle of Chalons (also known as Catalaunian Fields and Campus Martius) was fought between a coalition of Roman legionnaires, Germanic Visigoths, and Gauls against the Huns. Flavius Aetius was the Roman commanding general, and he led his forces to defeat Attila, king of the Huns and commander of the Hun armies. The loss caused Attila to withdraw and skirmish into Italy, but again (this time through diplomacy and concessions) he withdrew in 452, returning into what is now modern Hungary. Attila died in 453, and the Hun menace to Europe had ended.
Aetius had been the declining (and fragmented) Western Roman Empire’s best chance to restructure itself. He had fought in Gaul and throughout Italy and Europe for decades, sometimes even with support from the Huns before Attila began his quest for empire. A master strategist, tactician, diplomat, and warrior, he effectively stemmed the collapse of the Western Roman Empire for another 25 years. In all probability, he may have been able to turn things around for a longer period of time.
This was not to be, as he was assassinated by none other than the Emperor Valentinian III and his henchman Heraclius on 22 September 454. Continue reading
Educators in Virginia back in the 50’s and 60’s should remember well that we had an example of Common Core enforced by the state for fifteen years. It was an example of what happens when government takes over the writing of history and government textbooks. The story is one I was involved in and should be a warning against letting he Federal Government take control of curriculum in local school systems.
To understand Virginia in the 1940’s and 50’s a description by historian V. O. Key, Jr. in his study of Democrat Party politics in the South summed it up very well. We were described as “the state with the most thorough control by an oligarchy.” While most Virginians alternated between the use of the term “organization” or “machine” for those who ran the state it was accepted that the dominant figure was U. S. Senator Harry F. Byrd, Sr. The organization had the ability to keep a tight rein on the government through strong courthouse control and a poll tax. Continue reading
Oh c’mon now – you KNOW that it’s funny…
Not your ordinary pharmacist
You’ve seen all the commercials. But what really happens when you ask for help with THAT problem lasting more than 4 hours?
I walked into a drug store and asked to talk to a male pharmacist. The woman I was speaking with said she was the only pharmacist and since she and her sister owned the store, there were no male employees.
She asked if she could help me. I said that I really would have preferred to speak with a male pharmacist. She assured me that she was completely professional and whatever it was that I needed to discuss, I could be confident that she would treat me with a high level of professionalism. Continue reading
January 1 – prostitution by minors will be legal in California.
Yes, you read that right!
SB 1322 bars law enforcement from arresting sex workers who are under the age of 18 for soliciting or engaging in prostitution, or loitering with the intent to do so. So teenage girls (and boys) in California will soon be free to have sex in exchange for money without fear of arrest or prosecution.
This terribly destructive legislation was written and passed by the progressive Democrats who control California’s state government with a two-thirds “supermajority.” To their credit, they are sincere in their belief that decriminalizing underage prostitution is good public policy that will help victims of sex trafficking. Unfortunately, the reality is that the legalization of underage prostitution suffers from the fatal defect endemic to progressive-left policymaking: it ignores experience, common sense and most of all human nature — especially its darker side.

As I write this, financial markets are bouncing near all-time (artificial) highs, with the Dow hovering around 20,000 (a point that also played a central role in last week’s article, “Making America Great” Through Anti-Christian Economics.)
This sky high (and then some) market exuberance is in no small part due to the next wave of anticipated bailouts of “too big to fail” banks and businesses through the black magic of our fiat economic system.
In case you haven’t heard, after Obama’s mountains of debt spending which followed eight years of ginormous government growth under Dubya, we’re now gonna “Make America Great Again” by – you guessed it! – spending tons of fake money on tons of cool stuff; everything from propping and/or expanding the satanic/Marxist constructs of Social Security and public schools to the funding of ginormous military buildups and road/rail/everything-else improvements is on the table.

I do not know what people think transpired between September 1787, when the finalized constitution was voted upon by the convention, and March of 1789 when it went into effect. All I know is what I have read about that period in American History, and what I’ve read shows me that there were serious doubts by some fervent patriots about the wisdom of adopting the form of government outlined by the Constitution.
Back then it was a momentous decision; choosing whether to replace their confederation with a stronger, more centralized government. But to understand all that transpired during that period one must go back; way back in history to understand the history of man himself.
I know that some of those who read my articles do not believe in the Bible, and therefore any mention of what it contains will cause them to immediately reject anything I say. That is unfortunate; but I accept that and must continue as my heart dictates. Continue reading
There has been a common misconception about the nature of American political spectrum. In a naive man’s view, the American electorate is like a coin with its two opposing sides, the Left and the Right. At times of elections, one of the two sides of the coin ends up on the top and the respective party prevails, just like in a football game when one team wins and another loses. After the game, the teams and their fans go home and life returns to normal until the rematch during which the losing side has a chance to recover its loss. That familiar pattern, typical for sportsmen-like competitions, is supposed to describe the American elections, according to the said misconception. Continue reading
Because I am a “lifer” in the military, I’ve seen the impact of a president more than many of you can imagine. I enlisted with LBJ and saw just what a Democrat clusterflock was all about. I went to Vietnam and saw how we were constantly and incessantly bombarded with micromanagement from Washington that got thousands of military people killed. I sometimes wonder if I’ll get to heaven, but if I go to hell, I’m sure I’ll still be a few hundred floors above that bastard Robert McNamara , LBJ, John Kerry, Jane Fonda, and yes, even the “hero” John McCain.
