Blogger Confessions: Growing Up Under a Socialist Regime

I don’t often tell people this, and few know this about me. But I grew up under an oppressive socialist regime. And this is the first time I have ever written about the experience.

And as I watch the Democrats and many of today’s youth talking about how socialism is better than capitalism, I get chills up and down my spine and I have nightmares at the thought of going back to this oppressive form of domination. It is painfully obvious that those clambering for socialism really have no clue what it is really like.

So let me give you the benefit of my knowledge.

A lot of the free stuff you hear about is true. I received free housing, clothing, food, free travel arrangements and free education. I had free medical and dental whenever I needed it and I never had to pay for anything. Water, electricity, phone were all free.

That is the perfect socialist utopia today’s naive young folks all dream about. And from my experience living under socialism I can say that this is all true. But it wasn’t really all free stuff. Not exactly.

Sure I got free meals, but I was forced to eat what was served.

I got free clothes, but never the ones I wanted. I was forced to wear only clothes approved by the regime. The same was true of the housing and free utilities. The temperature was tightly controlled by the regime. Even the free television was limited to approved programs and times.

I was even told how to cut my hair and when. It was free, but…

Soon I realized that free without freedom was very expensive. The longer I lived under the thumb of this regime the more miserable I became. And the last few years of living in this utopia became intolerable. I was forced to work without pay “for the good of all”. After all, everything was “free”. (Except me.)

So one day I had had enough and I escaped. I ran as fast as I could into freedom’s outstretched arms. And I have never regretted leaving.

Now, I am able to wear what I want, eat what I want and watch TV when and whatever I want. I come and go as I please and I am so much happier than when I was trapped in that socialist environment where I had no freedom and no choices.

Sure I have had to work and earn those things I want or need, but I don’t mind. At least I am free to do that as I please.

Now I dearly loved my Socialist oppressors and they gave me what I received out of love, even if I often had no say in the matter. They were both good parents I was blessed.

But when I reached the age that I was able to work and care for myself, that is exactly what I wanted to do and what I did.

So what is the difference between a traditional family (which operated very much like a socialist government) and a real socialist regime like the left wants?

Well, first, there is no love or kindness involved in a Socialist Government. And as more an more people become dependent on government, the productive people no longer benefit from work. If my Dad were given everything by the government that they thought he needed, who would have climbed the polls to keep people’s lights on? Why should he risk his life when he gets what he needs?

So the government would force him to work like I was forced to cut the grass and clean my room.

And eventually, like in Venezuela, the free stuff would end. Gradually at first, then when it reached critical mass, the downfall is fast. No electricity, no food supplies, no trucks, no distribution and no money.

Now the Socialist government will all do well. They will have plenty.

But not us.

I am not interested in dumpster diving for my next meal – in a dumpster already picked over.

But the left never invites those they have duped to think this socialism idea out to it’s logical conclusion.

I moved out of my parents house enthusiastically, because I wanted my freedom. I was not made to live in my parents basement forever. And they loved me.

I learned that free is not cheap enough. And this is doubly true with Socialism.

Democrat Josh Cole Spreading Lies about Abortion in Virginia

It looks like we have another Democrat liar running for the Virginia House of Delegates. Josh Cole just sent me an email that reads:

Josh Cole – Baby Killing Pastor



Tom—  

My name is Josh Cole, I am the Democrat running to unseat Bob Thomas, a Republican who recently said he’d like to see Georgia’s near-total ban on abortion imposed here in Virginia.

In a radio interview, Delegate Bob Thomas commented that he supports near-total bans like the one just enacted in Georgia, saying “I don’t believe it’s too extreme.”

Thomas continued, saying that if Republicans maintain their majorities, they will move to pass a similar bill in Virginia. Make no mistake, there are elections this year, right here in Virginia, that will decide the balance of the entire legislature. 

Here’s the bottom line: Bob Thomas cannot be reelected.
I’m ready to head to Richmond, but I can’t do it without your help.

And of course he asks for money, money money to prevent the mean old Republican legislature from passing a bill to halt the killing of babies. Anything to fan the panic flames of ignorant Democrat voters.

Anyone that reads this blog knows full well that even if the Republicans, with the current crop of RINO’s could all pretend that they are pro life for a minute, the legislation would be vetoed by Governor Black Face Baby Killer Northam because Planned Parenthood bought his radical baby killing ass for $2 Million. Follow the money.

A much larger question to ponder is how Cole, a Liberty University graduate who lists his occupation as Pastor can lead a congregation in a prayer to God with infanticide in his heart. Any Pastor that is a proponent of abortion is certainly not a Man of God in my book!

The Dem’s Chickens Roosting on Gov. Northam’s Pointed Hat

Which one is Governor Northam?

So the exploding news this weekend is about some old pictures of Virginia’s current Governor Ralph Northam from his Med School yearbook. First he admitted he was in the picture above, then he denied it. But admitted he did dress in black-face for Halloween pretending to be Michael Jackson once.

I remember not too long ago when immature antics in High School or College were simply a rite of passage. They were written off as dumb actions by kids.

Burt we have recently learned from the Democrats and the left wing media that if you are in politics, anything you have ever done or are accused of doing at any point in your life is reason enough to plaster you with hate and tar and feather you with a constant barrage of negative stories and speeches in a joint effort to render you unelectable.

Of course the intent is to only apply this microscope to Republicans. Democrats are supposed to get a free pass. The late Democrat Senator Robert Byrd is a great illustration of this double standard. Byrd was not only a member of the KKK, he was a high ranking officer in the hate group. And when he was elected to the US Senate in 1959, his time with the Klan wasn’t 3 or 4 decades old, it was merely 10 years behind him. But he was forgiven because he was a guaranteed liberal vote all the time.

Then there was Judge Roy Moore. He tried to kiss a girl 35 or 40 years ago. When she rebuffed his advances, he quit and didn’t try again. Moore never dressed in black face or wore a KKK outfit (believe me, if he had that would have been all over the news). And we can’t forget the allegations against Justice Kavanaugh in his recent hearings. When the dust settled, it turns out the rape allegations were a case of mistaken identity. Oops!

But the left has taught us that it doesn’t matter how far back you go with dirt. What didn’t matter with Robert Byrd because it was ancient history is front and center today. No one, especially Republicans, can ever change their stripes.

So when the Governor of Virginia spoke the other day about killing infants after they are born, it was a bridge too far for (apparently) someone that has known Northam for a long time. He kept his mouth shut about the racist pictures in Northam’s yearbook and the fact that he was called “Coonman” at VMI. But when Northam advocated murder – infanticide – he could remain quiet no longer. The Democrat’s love of the blood sport of abortion has gone too far. Tee shirts with slogans like “I enjoyed my abortion” are the products of very sick minds.

Another prime example of the left’s sickness is the Washington Post’s story about how the news was discovered of this racist past of Governor Northam. The story begins talking about the person that “outed” the pictures was not political but was highly offended at the abortion comments by Northam. And pretty much the rest of the story is about the journalist that broke the story and how he worked for Breitbart and other (hated) news media on the right.

Typical Alinsky tactics. Impugn the character of the messenger in order to negate the story.

Yea. That’s probably not going to work this time. Not to mention that it is totally irrelevant to the real story. There is no place for this type of superfluous reporting in real journalism. The story stands on it’s own.

Ralph Northam has a history of racism and how long ago it occurred is no longer relevant.

Ralph Northam must resign immediately!!!

Hey Ralph – don’t let the mansion door hit you on your way out.

Again?! Anthony Weiner Deletes Twitter After Embarrassing Clinton Campaign With More Racy Photos – Breitbart

Former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner deleted his Twitter account this morning, after his racy online behavior was again splashed on the front pages of the New York tabloids.This time Weiner was caught sending racy pictures to a woman while his son was in bed with him — a new low for the man married to Hillary Clinton’s top aide, Huma Abedin.

Time to Call a Spade a Spade by Ron L. Hedlund

facebook_1472164699957

I believe in conventions, but I no longer believe in the people who run them.”  R. L. Hedlund

Going back to 1993, as chairman of the Alleghany County, Covington and Clifton Forge GOP units, I have always been a staunch supporter of conventions as our party’s preferred, if not exclusive, method of nominating candidates for statewide office.

I remember leading the Alleghany Highlands contingent of roughly one dozen delegates to the Richmond Coliseum (there was only 1 this year at JMU) where we nominated George Allen, Mike Farris and Jim Gilmore.  That selection was vilified by establishment Republicans, as the most extreme, right wing ticket ever, with absolutely zero chance of taking out the democrats, led by Mary Sue Terry.

Today, we have the same question before us, only now, I am a member of the State Central Committee and am called upon to cast a vote for either a state-run open primary or a party-run convention.  I will not waste ink or electrons arguing pros and cons of each.  We’ve all heard them. But let me add, what good does it do the grassroots to have strong, competing  grassroots candidates and their campaigns cheated out of a nomination at a party-run convention? Those folks go away with revenge on their minds, not party loyalty. And many of them go away, never to be seen again.

What I have gained today, is much more insight as to how our party is run behind the curtain, and more importantly, the character of those who are running our party. We need to shine more light on our party leaders, even if it exposes more of my own faults.

facebook_1472164777480(1)Two years ago, I got back into hardcore politics with Dave Brat and the Brat Pack during that historic primary.  If you want to read the inside baseball account of what it took to make political history, read “How to Bag a Rino” by Gray Delaney and Zach Werrell.  After the 2014 primary, I stepped out of politics again, but not for ten years this time.  When Vince Haley decided to run for state senate six months later, I offered to volunteer my services.

Another grueling primary campaign against three formidable opponents.  Congratulations to Siobhan Stolle Dunnavant, the eventual winner.

After the spring state senate primary, a presidential nomination loomed.  Having worked alongside fellow right wing, Tea Party conservatives in both the Brat and Haley primaries, I made many friends with Ted Cruz supporters and considered myself one among them.  Ted Cruz even endorsed Vince Haley for state senate.

I had great aspirations for Senator Cruz and it was not until July of last year, that I was asked by my good friend, fellow VCDL member and Chairman of the Hopewell GOP, Brandon Howard, to back Donald Trump for President. I was one of the very first volunteers to get on board with the Trump campaign in Virginia. And I have no intention of getting off.

I liked what I saw.  An outsider, like Dave Brat.  A man who could see through the chatter and fog and analyze players, strategies and personalities like Vince Haley.

I have stuck with Trump through thick and thin.  He has the moxy to bring the power brokers to the table and make them play on his terms, not theirs. I admire Trump and his innate ability to peel back the layers of false pretenses and get to the matter at hand. He speaks what I and many of the disenfranchised are thinking. And what Trump has consistently said is that the system is rigged. And it is. The hardline Cruz apologists will argue that Trump simply does not know how the system works and that it does not matter what the voters think, it only matters how many delegates you bring to convention. I used to believe that too.

Last fall, the SCC voted to institute a mandatory party pledge for the March 2016 primary. I was not on SCC then, but I vigorously fought the pledge as antithetical to the Tea Party and independent voter that would be attracted to Trump.  Many of the same type attracted to Ronald Reagan. After repeatedly being rebuffed and then told by Chairman Whitbeck that it was too late to repeal the pledge, on January 15 this year, Vince Haley filed to run against Whitbeck for RPV Chairman and within 2 weeks, SCC voted UNANIMOUSLY to repeal the contentiously passed pledge with no public discussion whatsoever.  NO PUBLIC DISCUSSION, WHATSOEVER! Miracle of miracles. After the vote, Whitbeck whispered in my ear, “You can call your dogs off now.” With no pledge to run against, and a lack of financial support, Vince ceased campaigning for chairman, while I began earnestly campaigning for SCC.

I realized I had serious issues with what I found going on inside the party, with their secretive executive session meetings and I thought I could help make a difference to the good.  With Vince out of the race, John Whitbeck turned his attention and retribution, toward the 7th District SCC ticket.  Our ticket was supported by the Conservative Fellowship wing of the SCC.  We ended up winning 2-1, in spite of the Chairman’s efforts and big money, to sway the outcome.

But it is the Cruz-heavy, Conservative Fellowship with which, I now find myself at odds.  The single biggest principle upon which CF members are united behind, is the choice of conventions as the method of nomination for statewide candidates. But apparently, that was not the case last year when the SCC voted for a presidential primary with breakaway Fellowship support.

How did I arrive at this point? When Whitbeck tried to exert undue influence in the 7th District SCC race, Vince Haley decided to reconstitute his campaign for party Chairman and I joined back up with him, against the advice of several close political allies. Haley For Chairman, Part II was a real eye opener for Vince and me. Sausage making at its worst. Nominations and Rules Committee members, some hand picked by Ken Cuccinelli and John Whitbeck, rigged the system against Vince. Their meetings and deliberations were kept secret and members were instructed by RPV leadership. If you attended the state convention at JMU, you can appreciate the truly monumental disaster that it was. More of the same, only now, the backstabbing was closer to home.

To top it off, you had the Cuccinelli-led, national delegate selection debacle that will forever be a festering scab on the party and the work we try to accomplish electing Republicans. It wasn’t just about salvaging a Cruz nomination. It was about extracting revenge and retribution on Corey Stewart and others. Even writing this article raises concerns for me. We have an election to win in November. Will this piece ultimately hinder our efforts at party organization and winning for the ticket? There is NEVER a good time to deal with serious, inner party issues in Virginia. We have elections every year.

That is one reason for putting off this nomination vote until AFTER November. No matter what method we choose, there will be gnashing of teeth and perpetual hand-wringing. But I suspect we will not put it off. And should I find myself forced to pick convention or primary Saturday, I find myself now seriously considering a primary for one simple, but monumental reason. I no longer trust many of those with whom I have associated for running a fair and open convention.

Tuesday night, I found myself at serious odds with the Fellowship. One of the newly elected leadership team vigorously  stated that if anyone on the call was not supportive of moving the SCC meeting to Loudoun County as suggested by Whitbeck, in his opinion, we were no longer a part of the Fellowship and should hang up immediately. So I hung up immediately and I must assume I am no longer a part of the Fellowship. Eight others on that call voted against moving the meeting. Did they change their votes or are they no longer considered a part of the Fellowship? It turns out, a total of 47 members of the entire SCC are in agreement that it was a bad idea to move the meeting at such a late date and with such a contentious agenda scheduled.

After hanging up, I had to wonder why there was such an unreasonable effort to give Whitbeck an absolute unanimous vote of support for relocation from the Fellowship. The Chairman had already conceded at the start of the call that the then current, SCC vote was 28-8, opposed to relocation.

If you have a weak stomach for conspiracy theories, please skip this paragraph. And know that this is more than just a theory. The biggest reason the Fellowship was pushing the Whitbeck relocation idea, was to create a slight geographic advantage for a convention vote victory. Primary supporters in the 4th and 2nd districts would have a further distance to drive and might possibly miss the meeting. These are the kind of dirty, underhanded, backroom political tricks I had come to know from our opponents. Now, it was coming from our own people who helped get me elected to SCC. People angry at me for not, “seeing the bigger picture.”

Talk about rigging the system! And let me point out that the same person who demanded lockstep unanimity on the concall, is the same person who made the original motion to institute the mandatory party pledge in the presidential primary. A Cruz supporter. Purely coincidental.

The Fellowship is not only attempting to rig the SCC vote. Even within our own internal proceedings for nominating candidates for SCC offices, they rigged the system to keep out unwanted candidates. They did the very same thing Whitbeck has been criticized for doing. They put their thumb on the scale to unduly influence the outcome for officer nominations. I nearly left the Fellowship over that incident back in June. But cooler heads prevailed.

I realize there will be those who now consider me a traitor for having pledged to support a convention, even as late as Tuesday night on the concall. But I can take heart in the advice of my original choice for President, Ted Cruz. I will vote my conscience Saturday. How ironic is it to now possibly find myself lumped together with that other infamous convention traitor, John Whitbeck?

As much as it pains me to say this, until RPV can prove to me our conventions will be run fairly and transparently, you can expect me to remain on the primary side of the aisle. One small step in that direction is a revamping of the method of nomination and election of our at-large national convention delegates at our state conventions. We have three years to get this right, and that is why I am supporting the resolution offered by Sandy Bourne.  Voter disenfranchisement and rigging the system, if we have not learned anything from Trump, HAS TO STOP!

I still can’t believe I wrote this. I was advised not to for fear that the Fellowship would come after me and try to have me removed from SCC. Some of those no longer on SCC were Fellowship members who voted for the primary last year. If I am ultimately forced out, it only proves my point how extremist their leadership has become. To those of you convention supporters who voted for me, I sincerely apologize. My goal is to work with all sides to get to the point where SCC is responsible for administering a fair and open process that invites more grassroots voters, and not get lost in the weeds being focused on individual candidates and their win-at-any-cost campaigns.

I ran for SCC on a platform of transparency. That is why I am letting my constituents know what I am thinking as I head into the Saturday meeting. Even if we have a secret ballot, which I will vote against, I want you to know how disgusted I am with the rigged system. How will we ever expect to attract good and decent people like Vince Haley and 5th District congressional candidate, Michael Del Rosso (who happened to be a Trump surrogate speaker on national security issues in Cleveland), and keep people like them in the party, if we don’t clean up our own act?

It can be done if we work together. I know this because we are doing it in Henrico County with our new Chairman, Eddie Whitlock. He has been a true conservative statesman and gentleman to work with. If you are happy with the status quo and our rigged conventions, move along. There is an alternative. What do we have to lose? A republic?

Bearing Drift’s Shaun Kenney Has Major Islamic Refugee Egg on his Face after Roanoke Beheading Attempt

I knew it wouldn’t take long. On August 4th, Drifty Boy Shaun Kenny wrote an ill conceived post ridiculing people who have expressed concern at the influx of Muslim Syrian refugees into Virginia. Specifically – Roanoke. When I read the post that was sent to me by a friend (I never read that RINO / Establishment blog) I knew Kenney would eat those words sooner or later, probably sooner.

Note: If you want to read the article, do me a favor and read it on the “Way Back Machine”. I care about my readers and wouldn’t want to subject you to the real site. Nor do I want to send them any traffic. The link on the Way Back Machine is here. But if you are a glutton for punishment and want to read it from the donkey’s mouth, here is the link to the Drifty blog. But there is a high likelihood that after I expose the laughable post by Kenney, the post will be deleted to avoid the ridicule. But they do not control the archive.

Kenney’s article is rife with ridicule and his “holier than thou” attitude is in full peacock mode as he makes fun of the sane citizens of Virginia and Roanoke for having concerns about the influx of 21 Syrian “refugees”.

I mean look — just look — at what 21 Syrian refugees did in a mere matter of seconds after they arrived in Virginia.

From the Roanoke Times (now rumored to have been renamed al-Manar):

And:

Oh dear God.  Well at least it’s contained to Roano–

And:

Habeeb’s rationality is matched only by the ridiculous charity expressed by the “mules” and “useful idiots”  (you know, those Christian types) who bring these people terrorists refugees infiltrators to our loving shores, lifting its lamp beside the golden door:

“For years, Roanoke has been supportive to refugees and provided care, friendship, employment and understanding,” Commonwealth Catholic Charities wrote in an emailed statement. “These families are learning English, American culture and preparing to start employment. Their adjustment appears to be going well.”

To the contrary!  Now is the time to PANIC!!!  I mean, what must downtown Roanoke actually look like right now??

Oh right… it’s freakin’ gorgeous.

But be careful now, wide awake citizens!  While most people see joy! and flowers! and amazing foods! and everything that makes America great… others who have the hidden gnostic knowledge and a proper fear of mankind will a secret and diabolical terrorist plot to make America “stronger” by bringing in “refugees” and victims of Islamist terrorism…

Of course, Roanoke doesn’t look like Aleppo in the slightest.  Virginia’s acceptance of 121 refugees in a population of 8.3 million hasn’t bothered anyone at all.  Syrian Christians who are toughing it out in Syria still are begging for help from the Obama administration — and such cries are falling on deaf ears.  Meanwhile, ISIL’s war of purity against Muslims themselves is devolving to a brutal conclusion at the hands of al-Assad and his Russian sponsors.

Virginia can afford to lift its lamp beside the golden door.

Get the drift?

Anyone who is concerned at all about bringing in hundreds of mostly young, fit, male Muslims from a country that has been the hot bed of terrorism for centuries is, in Kenney’s opinion, an idiot.

farooqui_0

It didn’t take more than a couple of weeks after Kenney’s asinine post for the echos of “Allah Akbar” uttered from a knife wielding terrorist to break the calm and peace of a Roanoke apartment complex as a couple were attacked at random. 20-year-old Wasil Farooqui not only attacked the innocent couple, but apparently was intent on beheading the pair.

From WTVR-6

Both the stabbing victims and witnesses said Farooqui yelled “Allah Akbar” — Arabic for God is Great — during the attack WDBJ reported.

The man and woman were attacked as they entered the apartment complex.

Both survived the attack, but needed to be hospitalized due to their injuries.

“A law enforcement source said the FBI is investigating whether the knife attack was possibly inspired by ISIS and whether the suspect may have been trying to behead his victims,” CBS News reported. “A U.S. intelligence source tells CBS News Farooqui has been on the FBI’s radar for months and is believed to be self-radicalized.”

That source told CBS News that Farooqui first appeared on law enforcement’s radar after he tried to go to Syria earlier this year before returning to the U.S.

Farooqui was arrested when he showed up to the emergency room for treatment, CBS News added.

But do you think Shaun Kenney will issue an apology for being so wrong and for being such a jerk for ridiculing people with a concern that this exact scenario was inevitable, the incidences in all mathematical probability increasing with every new batch of Muslim (Never Christian) refugees, most battle hardened and pre radicalized?

Don’t count on it.

The best advice, protect yourself. There are enablers all around and Kenney’s Alinsky techniques of ridicule only work if the fears are unfounded.

Just ask the couple who are in the hospital just how accurate people like Kenney are in downplaying the danger from this suicidal exercise in self destruction.

As a Navy Vet I can tell you, when a group of crazy people declare war on you, kill in the name of their deity all over the globe and say they are coming for you, I freaking believe them.

And all Americans should will believe them too. When enough blood is spilled.

Brilliant campaign email from Trump

I tend to submit my name to various political campaigns, both Republican and Democrat, so that I can see their emails. Most of the emails are open begs for money, and they are predicated on fear — the other side is winning, we’re cornered, we need your help. As Scott Adams points out, fear is a very good motivator and Hillary, especially, likes to use it. The problem with fear is that one eventually gets inured to it.  For example, if you read diaries from people who experienced the bombing campaigns in either London or Berlin, what you see is a gradual transition from blind panic to something akin to zen resignation. Eventually racing to bomb shelters just doesn’t seem worth it. All you can do is hope that the next bomb isn’t meant for you.

In terms of Hillary’s fear campaign, I don’t think that her most devout, ideological followers are going get inured to her warnings that Trump is a mad man. I do think, though, that they’ll cease to remain enthused for her. At a certain point, they’ll say in a robotic monotone, “Yeah, he’s crazy and I’m going to vote for Hillary, but I really don’t like Hillary very much. . . .”  That is, fearing Trump doesn’t transform into liking Hillary and, to the extent voter enthusiasm matters, this isn’t a good thing.

Going back to the Scott Adams link above, Adams says that Trump had a very good week. He did three smart things:  He gave calm, normal speeches; the calm, normal speeches contained core truths that most Americans (even loosey-goosey Lefties, if they’re honest with themselves) recognize as true; and he hired very media savvy campaign advisors — and this is true even if Ben Shapiro is correct in his claim that Stephen Bannon is the demonic Mephistopheles to Trump’s Faust.

Apropos Shapiro’s J’Accuse! to Bannon, I admit to being troubled. I admire greatly Shapiro’s wicked good intelligence, strong moral core, ideological courage, and great communication skills, so I’m most certainly not going to dismiss what he says. Having said that, his accusations against Bannon are so strong that, to me, they’re a bit self-defeating.  Despite believing that there are evil people out there, it’s difficult for me to believe that Bannon is that evil. And if he’s not that evil, how evil is he? Also, to the extent Shapiro is a NeverTrumper, and I’ve concluded that Hillary will be so dreadful that it’s worth taking the risk that Trump will be less dreadful, I have to factor Shapiro’s anti-Trump bias into the equation. But I digress….

My point is that fear is a useful weapon up to a point. It excites strong emotions, but those emotions cannot stay excited. Also, while it most certainly drags the opposition down, it’s not a great tool to build yourself up. That is, I don’t think Hillary makes herself look any better by saying that Trump is scary, especially when he’s not behaving in scary ways.

So if the fear-based campaign email is a little bit of a dead-end, what else can a candidate do?  Well, I just received a very different email from the Trump campaign and, frankly, I thought it was brilliant.

Before I get to that email, let me back up a minute and talk about campaign slogans and rhetoric. Hillary’s slogan is “I’m With Her,” which is just a meaningless statement of allegiance. Paul McCartney twisted to “She’s With Me,” which should certainly get out the aging British rocker vote, but isn’t much of a get-out-the-vote slogan either.  (And honestly, I really wish he’d kept his mouth shut because I love the Beatles’ music but now, every time I hear a song, I think to myself “It’s such a shame that McCartney matured into being an idiot” — which kind of spoils the music.)

Trump did a beautiful bit of rhetorical jujitsu and, instead of insisting that voters line up behind him, sheep-like, announced to the voters “I’m With You.”  There’s a world of meaning in that. I’m supporting your values, I’m your man in the fight, I care about the things you care about, I am your servant, not your master.

Taking that powerful statement one step further, Trump’s campaign sent out a wonderful campaign email, which I’ll quote in full here:

Trump Pence Logo
In less than three months, you get to vote for the next president of the United States.

But in order to make sure Trump wins, we need YOUR immediate input on his critical general election strategy moving forward.

Take the Trump Campaign Strategy Survey now. >>

Without you, this campaign would be NOTHING.

Our landslide victories, our momentum, and our massive rallies are all thanks to supporters like you who were ready to Make America Great Again!

But now we face the fight of our lifetime. We The People are going up against Hillary Clinton’s monstrous machine of elites, lobbyists, and special interests who have sent our country down a very dark road.

To win this fight, Trump is turning to his most trusted advisers: the American People.

That means you.

Please – consider it your duty to take the Trump Campaign Strategy Survey now. >>

Thank you,

Team TRUMP

TAKE THE SURVEY

This was good for my lizard brain. He’s not telling me what he thinks I need to know. He’s asking me what I think he needs to know. Okay — I’ll bite. I followed the “survey” link and, rather than being told to give money first, actually got a real survey asking for my opinions about things important to conservatives. The survey ticks off most of the true conservative boxes, which should help allay suspicion amongst those who think he has no idea what conservative voters care about. As you look at the questions, which are a laundry list of the desires of frustrated conservatives, you will see that the Trump campaign has engaged us in his platform. We now have ownership.

Milwaukee on Fire

Shortly after 23-year-old Sylville Smith was shot and killed by a Milwaukee, Wisconsin law enforcement officer last weekend and before facts surrounding the shooting surfaced, the city of Milwaukee went up in flames courtesy of Black Lives Matter leaders in Chicago, Illinois who used social media to incite riots.

Sylville Smith thug shot and killed by police officer Milwaukee Wisconsin 2

Back stepping to moments before the shooting: Smith and a fellow occupant fled on foot from their vehicle after being stopped by law enforcement during what should have been a routine traffic stop.

The officers both wearing bodycams pursued Smith and his friend on foot during which Smith and Officer Dominique Heaggan-Brown, age 24 also Black came face to face.

Officer Heaggan-Brown, who as it was reported earlier this week went to the same school with Smith, knew him and the two may have even had a history with one another, ordered the suspect to drop his firearm.

According to reports, Smith refused and may have raised his firearm that contained 23 rounds at which point, Officer Heaggan-Brown fired seven shots at Smith hitting him once in the arm and another in the chest.  The shots proved fatal and Smith’s firearm as it turned out was reported stolen five months ago along with 500 rounds of ammunition.

[UPDATEReports that Smith and Heaggan-Brown attended the same high school were disputed by Smith’s family and has since been confirmed by the officer’s family.  According to Smith’s sister both men “were well acquainted” with each other since high school.  In other words, both men knew who they were dealing with and what.]

Before the name, ethnicity of the officer who shot and killed Smith became public knowledge or the fact that they knew each other was reported, Milwaukee was burning[…]

Politicians’ external behaviors do not prove whether they have a strong moral core

I don’t particularly like a friend one of the Little Bookworms has, although I feel quite sorry for the young woman. She’s in her late teens, with staggeringly low self-esteem that she buries by indulging in drugs, alcohol, and gender fluid sexual engagements. I don’t worry, though, that she’ll be a bad influence on my child who has – thank goodness – a solid moral core that resists this type of depressing debauchery. In any event, my child is a legal adult and can consort with whomever she likes.

The reason I mention this unhappy young woman is that my Little Bookworm met the young woman’s latest boyfriend. Of that young man, my Little Bookworm had this to say: “He’s a really interesting guy in his early 20s. He’s a total straight arrow. He doesn’t drink, smoke, or do drugs.”

I asked the logical question: “What’s he doing with your friend then?”

The answer surprised me. “He’s a drug dealer.”

Well! I immediately told Little Bookworm that, while I have no legal control over her social life, she would do well never to socialize with either the friend or the boyfriend again. I reminded my children ad nauseum when they were growing up that San Quentin (which we can see from our home, so it’s a very real place to them) is filled with prisoners whose primary mistake was to have the wrong friends. If the boyfriend gets arrested while my Little Bookworm is in the same apartment he is, Little Bookworm will find herself in an adjoining jail cell.

Having delivered myself of this practical advice, I begin to think about the difference between apparently moral trappings and genuinely moral conduct. After all, other than the small problem of drug dealing, the boyfriend sounds great – clean cut and clean-living. The package looks good, but the core is rotten.

Looking back in time, we all know about that famous dog-loving, non-smoking, teetotaling vegetarian who sent six million Jews to the gas chamber and started a war that claimed 40 million or so lives within just six years. Hitler, like the boyfriend, was a mass of objectively virtuous behaviors that hid another rotten core.

The opposite can be true too. That is, there are people whose lives appear superficially vice-ridden, but who nevertheless have a strong moral compass. Take Winston Churchill, who was in so many ways Hitler’s opposite during WWII.

Churchill was undoubtedly an alcoholic. He showed exceptionally bad judgment during WWI, leading to the Gallipoli disaster. Many have credibly accused him during WWII of promoting plans that led to unnecessary loss of life, whether of his own troops or German civilians. In addition to loving his wife, mother, and daughters, he had a strain of misogyny that revealed itself in some of his most brutally memorable insults to women who got under his skin.

Despite all those behavioral problems, Churchill had a rock-solid inner morality, one that allowed him immediately to take Hitler’s measure and to be a sure compass during the dark, dark days of WWII. He was Hitler’s light-filled antithesis.

We grow them like that at home too – people whose external behavior is at odds with their true moral (or immoral or amoral) center. Jimmy Carter is Southern Baptist who has always lived a life of traditional rectitude – he is a committed husband, a devout church-goer, and someone who regularly donates his time and energy to building housing for the poor.

I should admire Carter, but I don’t. I loathe him because that pious mantel is wrapped around a man who is a committed anti-Semite, one who routinely sides with the debauched death cult that is Hamas and its followers, a group of people who seek Jewish genocide, murder homosexuals and Christians, suppress women, and use children as shields for their children. No matter how conventionally pretty Carter’s little acts of selflessness, he is (to my mind, at least) a fundamentally bad man.

And of course there are the Clintons. What can we say about the Clintons? Hillary has been married to only one man (although he did allegedly tell an adulterous girlfriend that she cheated on him constantly . . . with women). She’s stood by her man through thick and thin, which seems like the act of a solid, faithful spouse. Still, one cannot help but suspect that her decision to stick it out was driven, not by a commitment to her marriage vows, but by her understanding that she would need someone whose charisma could pole vault her from one job for which she was unqualified and in which she did badly to another job for which she was unqualified and in which she did badly, a pattern that Hillary planned (and plans) to repeat right up until she sits behind the desk in the Oval Office.

To those of us who don’t respect Hillary, the fact that she’s held positions of importance (in all of which she’s conducted herself badly) or that she pays lip service to every Leftist political shibboleth of days past and present does nothing to hide her toxic soul: Hillary is a compulsive liar, a user, a shamefully unindicted felon, and a person motivated by a greed so deep and pure that many of us cannot even begin to contemplate what drives her from one act of crime and corruption to another.

You’d think that after having grubbed in $150,000,000 over a sixteen-year period, Hillary’s greed would be satiated and she’d lie low, but she can’t. Hillary is compulsively greedy and dishonest, a manifest fact that shocks those who believe core morality matters and a fact that, even more shockingly, couldn’t matter less to the legions of Leftists who will do anything to get her into the White House.

Bill is in a class by himself too. He’s such a charming, compassionate man, who really does seem to feel everyone’s pain. A more naturally gifted politician it’s hard to imagine. While I suspect most Americans would cringe at the thought of having Hillary seated next to them at a dinner party, I’m pretty sure most Americans, even those who hate the Clintons – both their politics and their corruption – would have a good time if they ended up with Bill as their dinner partner.

These superficial virtues, though, cannot should never allow us to forget that Bill is almost certainly a rapist, he’s definitely guilty of sexual assault short of rape, he’s a workplace harasser, he’s best buddies with a pedophile, he’s a perjurer and, like his wife, he will do absolutely anything, including selling out his own country, to fill his coffers. His soul is black. But there’s that charm. . . .

As they do with Hillary, the Left so desperately wants to ignore that black soul and forgive Bill his sins, never mind that he has no interest in forgiveness. It’s that need to pin atonement upon him, when he hasn’t really atoned at all, that resulted in one of the most perverse posts I’ve ever seen at the Wonkette blog, home to a hardy, and somewhat . . . um . . . intellectually esoteric collection of rapidly Leftist feminists.

A Leftist named Rebecca Schoenkopf gamely, and rather admirably, decided to tackle head-on an interview that Katie J. M. Baker did for Buzzfeed with Juanita Broaddrick, the woman who has claimed for almost forty years that Bill Clinton raped her.

The interview is a good one and deserves to be read. Broaddrick has never changed her core story in the 38 years since she alleges that Bill trapped her in a hotel room and raped her. Moreover, she’s mostly kept out of the limelight, so she cannot be accused of having made a profitable or high-profile career out of slandering Bill Clinton. Indeed, she might have stayed quiet still were it not for Hillary’s “feminist” insistence that “every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.”

For the 73-year-old Broaddrick, whom Hillary did everything possible to silence and discredit, these assertions were a bridge too far. Suddenly, on Twitter, she started speaking out. “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.”

Broaddrick comes across as a credible woman who was used badly by both Bill and Hillary and who never got the justice she deserved. But I want to return to Ms. Schoenkopf who, having read the interview, felt compelled to address it.

To her great credit, Schoenkopf has to concede that Broaddrick’s story is credible. To those who challenge Broaddrick, whether because her story has become more detailed over the years or because she speaks with right-wing organizations, Schoenkopf points out that (a) rape survivor’s do that as they grapple with the event and (b) Broaddrick hates Hillaru so she’ll naturally be drawn to those who support her as she speaks out against Hillary. Schoenkopf notes that, once one addresses these points:

that’s pretty much all the “I don’t believe Juanita” crowd has. Her friends found her with bruised lips, crying, right after the rape allegedly occurred. That’s what we call “contemporaneous evidence” when we believe women.

Once having accepted Broaddrick’s story as true, however, Schoenkopf seeks to rehabilitate Bill without any help from Bill himself. She first says that it was probably just an 80s power thing that had him respond to a woman’s repeated noes by assaulting her so badly she was left bruised and bleeding.

No.

I lived through the 1980’s in America. They were not like the 880’s in the Muslim Caliphate nor are they like the 2016’s in any ISIS-controlled region. Even back in those benighted times 35 years ago, men understood that trapping an unwilling woman in a room and using brute physical force as a way to have intercourse with her was a criminal act, no just macho posturing.

Bad as that bit of historical rewrite is, the worst thing Schoenkopf does it try to cleanse Bill’s criminal, blackened soul without demanding that he make any effort himself in that direction:

To sum up, I think Bill Clinton could very well have raped Juanita Broaddrick; that it doesn’t make him an evil man, or irredeemable (I’m Catholic; we’re all forgiven, if we’re sorry, and Broaddrick says Bill Clinton personally called her up to apologize). It doesn’t even necessarily make him a bad feminist — you know, later, once he stops doing that.

Sorry, but stopping committing crimes is not good enough. There’s no indication that he stopped because of conscience. There’s every indication that he stopped only because the higher his profile, the harder it became to get away with rape and other forms of sexual assault. In addition, the higher his profile, the easier it was to get women to bed him without his having to make any effort. He has no remorse. He has never repented.

Bill – charming, brilliant, even lovable – is a rotten apple who can be forgiven only if one re-writes entirely the definition of remorse and repentance so that those concepts have nothing to do with the actor’s soul and everything to do with his sycophants’ desire to resurrect his credibility.

The last joker in this deck of presidents and president wannabes is Donald Trump? It’s actually hard to get a grip on Trump’s behavior because of the foul miasma that the drive-by media has created around him. After a youth and midlife spent womanizing (but not raping), he seems to have settled down to marital fidelity. He’s also temperate in his behaviors, because he doesn’t smoke nor drink, and apparently has never done so. One could characterize him as an older man who, having sown his wild womanizing oats, has settled down and has the external morals of an elder statesman.

The Left, however, cannot accept a temperate, normal Donald Trump. The fever swamp that passes for a media today insists that (a) he’s an amphetamine addict and (b) that he’s a NAMBLA (North American Man-Boy Love Association) devotee. The last is especially funny because this is put forward as the reason he’s hiding his tax returns – as if an internationally known businessman would place front and center in his returns a charitable write-off to a pedophile organization.

The media derides Trump as a monster who tries to boot old ladies out of their homes, while his supporters (many of whom have known him personally for decades) characterize him as a generous, spontaneous, compassionate man who doesn’t hesitate a moment to help out people in need. He’s either a corrupt, inept businessman who’s sued constantly, or a pragmatic man who takes minimal risks, turns real profits, and has a knack for cutting through the red tape and getting the job done. He’s a bully or a warrior. He’s a genius or a fool.

The real question, though, is whether any of the above tell us about the real Trump, the man beneath the weird hair, the crazy outbursts, the crude attacks, the savvy business deals, the generous charitable contributions, the teetotaling (and tweaking?). I don’t think so. Everything I’ve described is window-dressing, none of which is an insight into the man’s soul.

I do have some hope, though, that Trump is one of the good guys and that’s for a reason personal to me: Just as I immediately recognized Obama because he was identical in affect and behavior to a handful of malignant narcissists who have been in my life and made me quite unhappy, Trump reminds me strongly of a dear friend.

Trump and my friend have so many traits in common: quirky, original, often brilliant minds; explosive tempers; mountains of eccentricities; pit bull-like fighting instincts, that include the inability to walk away from an argument or insult; loyalty; and great charm. That’s my friend’s outer shell, just as it’s Trump’s outer shell.

With my friend, this shell is a difficult, prickly one, but the rewards of calling him a friend are tremendous. He has such a deep, strong moral core. You can rely on him for insights about difficult times and help during times of need. He knows what is right and what is wrong. For now, until proven otherwise, I’m going to hope that, once one wipes away the slime the media throws at Trump, he’ll be just like my friend: brilliant, difficult, brave, and truly worth the effort.

[It occurs to me that someone who ought to be included in this post is Oskar Schindler, a ne’er do well who had one of the strongests consciences to emerge in Nazi Germany.]

Politicians’ external behaviors do not prove whether they have a strong moral core

Can the 2016 election be rigged? Here’s How

Now, former Trump campaign staffer and political veteran Roger Stone is something of a a controversial figure, but he’s been around and he’s no fool.

Today in The Hill, he put forward exactly how easily the 2016 election can be rigged:

The issue here is both voter fraud, which is limited but does happen, and election theft through the manipulation of the computerized voting machines, particularly the DIEBOLD/PES voting machines in wide usage in most states.

POLITICO profiled a Princeton professor — who has demonstrated how the electronic voting machines that are most widely used can be hacked in five minutes or less! Robert Fitrakis Professor of Political Science in the Social and Behavioral Sciences Department at Columbus State Community College has written a must-read book on the strip and flip technique used to rig these machines. Professor Fitrakis is a Green Party activist. …

To be very clear both parties have engaged in this skullduggery and it is the party in power in each state that has custody of the machines and control of their programing. This year, the results of machines in Pennsylvania, Virginia and Ohio, where Governor John Kasich controls the machines, must be matched with exit polls, for example.

Illinois is another obvious state where Trump has been running surprisingly strong, in what has become a Blue state. Does anyone trust Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a longtime Clinton hatchet man. not to monkey with the machines? I don’t. He was using City funded Community groups to recruit anti-Trump “protestors” who posed such a threat to public safety the Trump Chicago event was canceled when the Secret Service couldn’t guarantee his safety.

How do the pols of both parties do it? As easy as determining, on the basis of honest polling, who is going to win. Then, if it isn’t your candidate, simply have the votes for the other guy be given to your guy and vice versa. You keep the total vote the same. This is where the “strip and flip” technique described by Professor Fitrakis comes in.

Maybe you don’t need all the votes the other guy was going to get. If you have a plan in mind involving votes and their redistribution, you can find a programmer who can design the machine instructions to produce that outcome.  Or you can hack the machine you are voting in with that $15 device that you can get at BEST BUY.

A computer hacker showed CBS how to vote multiple times using a simple $15.00 electronic device.

(1) Publish a poll contrived to suggest the result you are going to bring about.

(2) Manipulate the machines to bring about precisely your desired outcome.

As someone with great sentimental attachment to the Republican Party, as I joined as the party of Goldwater, both parties have engaged in voting machine manipulation. Nowhere in the country has this been more true than Wisconsin, where there are strong indications that Scott Walker and the Reince Priebus machine rigged as many as five elections including the defeat of a Walker recall election.

Mathematician and voting statistic expert Richard Charnin has produced a compelling study by comparing polling to actual results and exit polls to make a compelling case for voting machine manipulation in the Badger state.

When the Trump vs. Cruz primary took place, the same pattern emerged again of a Marquette University poll showing a 20 point shift from Trump ahead by 10% to Trump behind by 10%, which was simply absurd. Shifts like that don’t happen over brief intervals of time, absent a nuclear explosion. It didn’t make any sense — unless you knew what was going on was an “instant replay” of Walker’s victories. The machine Priebus built was delivering for Cruz big time.

Today, the polling industry has been reported to be “in a state of crisis” because they are altering their samples to favor Hillary. The Reuters poll actually got busted for oversampling Democrats in order to inflate Hillary’s lead. We even had the absurdity of a Gallup poll proclaiming that 51% of those who had heard Trump’s speech were less likely to vote for him, which was endlessly repeated by the shills at MSNBC.

I predicted that Trump would lead in the polls after his highly successful convention (despite the media frenzy over the non-issue of a Melania Trump staffer plagiarizing a handful of words). In fact, post convention polling for the Trump effort by pollster Tony Fabrizio in key swing states was encouraging. Perhaps this is why the establishment elites have gone into over-drive to attack Trump.

Hillary hasn’t exactly had smooth sailing. Julian Assange of Wikileaks said he had inconvertible proof that as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton armed Isis LINK. The IRS has opened an investigation to the Clinton Foundation and it’s many offshoots, and Hillary got caught lying about what FBI Director Comey did say about her.

But you will see less of Hillary’s problems in the mainstream media, which has gone completely overboard in its relentless, even hysterical, efforts to lambaste Trump and promote her. Every remotely objective commentator has been stunned. Trump will, however, have an opportunity to drive these points home in the debates.

We are now living in a fake reality of constructed data and phony polls. The computerized voting machines can be hacked and rigged and after the experience of Bernie Sanders there is no reason to believe they won’t be. Don’t be taken in.

Admittedly, I’m not sure I go along totally with Roger Stone’s allegations about prior hacking. And the idea of exit polls has already proven to be rotten with fraud, since the predominantly Left/Democrat media conducts them, and a lot of people, including yours truly simply walk right on by them.

Even many of the publicly revealed ‘polls’ are subject to being cooked and manipulated, as I’ve proven more than once by examining their mechanics.

But voter fraud and easily hackable electronic machines are a very different matter. And Stone is 150% right to say that the current crop of Pols can’t be trusted.

For some time, I’ve said that we need to go back to paper ballots counted under very careful supervision.

No one yet has been able to hack a piece of paper combined with pen and ink.
