COLLINS BILL TO HONOR FALLEN CLERMONT MARINE SENT TO PRESIDENT’S DESK
WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.
“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.
Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.
Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.
That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.
See What Trump has Wrought
Rumor has it that the GOP will suffer terrible losses in 2018, an off year election losses that comes as surely as Elm blight comes in January. Rumor also has it that the Democrats may survive their current malise and sweep all before them in the off year election, if the had something to offer. A return of Obamacare perhaps, or more perverts in bathrooms? How about making all of America a “sanctuary” country by law? Yes, that should do it. Good selling points.
Why is it assumed that the alternative to the GOP should be a Democrat? They have moved so far to the “Left” as to be no longer recognizable as an American institution. They are a facsimile replica of the old Communist Party USA, an odious group of Marxist-Leninist social engineers whose goal, as a political philosophy, was top down “collectivism.” Losers for over 100 years.
American’s already cast their vote for change when they elected Donald Trump despite the screaming establishment GOP’ers who fought against him and the purveyors of doom and gloom, the geriatric Democrat leadership who fear the truth of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” program could doom them forever. We now know Trump was not bombast but a man of action. We took our chances as voters sick and tired of “diversity and multiculturalism, lying and stealing, Hillary Clinton and her Money laundering foundation and, we see it’s working.
It has taken a year for the “Establishment” GOP to realize that Trump, like a bulldozer, has made changes never thought possible. That’s what Americans wanted, a fighter, not a phony group name that was scared to do anything against the supposed might of the Democrat colossus that wielded power for themselves, not Americans, like they were entitled to it.
Democrat programs have turned out to be a concoction of lies designed solely to social engineer American society into a diverse, multicultural collection of perverts, homosexuals, transgenders and other victims that would keep the Democrats in power. Americans do not want “sanctuary cities” harboring illegal criminals, protecting them from the consequences of their crimes. Americans do not want perverts sharing bathroom facilities with their little children. Americans do not want “collectivism” as their guiding principles but rather would prefer a return to some level of moral and cultural certainty based on the centuries of Judaeo-Christian moral codes that made America great.
For 2018, Trump’s successes are out in the open for all to see. Passing the major overhaul of the “Progressive Tax Plan,” including all but killing off Obamacare by eliminating the odious mandate to buy the thing, is a success that should be trumpeted daily. Let Democrat politicians try to explain why they voted against tax cuts when the rewards start flowing in simply because they didn’t like Trump? Republicans had best get on board and help Trump, not hinder him.
Americans are vaguely aware that the EPA is being reduced and its unconstitutional laws, rules and regulations are being rolled back returning to property owners control of their own property. The Dept. of Energy, under former Texas Governor Rick Perry, is likewise making changes to advance America’s role in the energy sector. Now, we’re selling energy, not buying it.
Another occurrence this past week that made the Democrats go berserk was Trump’s recognition of Jerusalem as the legitimate capital of Israel. That act alone flushed out the real enemies of the US, the third world nations in the UN enjoying the generosity of American taxpayers. Supported by Nikki Haley that could bode ill for them. Americans want out of the UN!
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (21Dec17)
I could start out I suppose with some screed about the disappearing Al Franken(stein) but he’s done so much damage to himself and his party that little more need be said. Just keep it in mind that Al Franken is a really creepy fellow. My lasting image of him was his role in the movie Trading Places mocking a caged gorilla. I can’t get that image out of my mind and listening to big Al, now a humorless US Senator from Minnesota, interrogate Trump appointees as a member of the Senate Judiciary committee, I’m not convinced at all that the real gorilla truly didn’t get released back into the African wild. Enough on Al.
President Trump has just returned from his first presidential tour in the Far East. His reception by the Chinese was triumphal yet marred in the eyes of Trumps Chinese hosts by the ugly American incident that embarrassed President Trump, and should have embarrassed all American’s.
It seems that the UCLA Basketball team was on a tour playing against teams in the Chinese People’s Republic, when three of UCLA’s sterling members, Americans of African descent as it turns out, brought shame and embarrassment to President Trump and disgrace to themselves, and our nation, by assuming they were in their neighborhood corner convenience store where they could freely help themselves to pairs of sunglasses without paying for them. It’s called shoplifting or petty theft but, it’s still a crime. Could get you killed in Ferguson, Mo.
While the ‘brothers’ may look upon such actions here in America as their rightful due because their ancestors were once slaves, the Chinese look upon such social trivialities with different eyes. Ten years in a Chinese prison can be no picnic and, except for the incidental presence of an embarrassed President Trump, that’s exactly where they would have been, for a long, long time and nobody would be crying racism because nobody would care.
To their good fortune, President Trump sprung them from their worst possible nightmare of actually being enslaved as prisoners of the Chinese State. He got them home safe into the embrace of their communities where such behavior is apparently expected and alas, accepted. The three, their eyes cast down to the printed words provided to them mumbled, without contrition, their appreciation to President Trump for their salvation yet, not one word of apology was expressed to the American people for shaming our country by their feckless behavior.
People like these three are not really Americans because they have no pride and no shame. And, except for the fact they were born here, they are really just US citizens in name only, of no value to American prosperity or advancement and should be considered as such.
The three miscreants have passports and therefore, as individuals, should be allowed to come and go to foreign countries as they wish, but never, never, ever should they be allowed to go abroad again as members of any organized sports team, debate society, or anthropological research team, representing America. We have enough problems with our own government perverts stalking storm ravaged Caribbean Islands looking for poor children to molest and groping women in corporate work places to add these guys to our burden.
One big problem for America is that we have lost our morality on an individual basis. We truly believe that all (Americans) are equal yet we send forth goodwill ambassadors, passionate exponents for their sports, mostly, and they become the ugly Americans. What’s to be done?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (18Nov17).
Bush Finally Speaks
What did it take for former President George W. Bush to finally come out of his burrow and make a public declaration against a sitting President? No no, not against the eight years of Obama’s disastrous attempt to socialize America, or demeaning Bush’s own presidency, but against conservative Donald Trump who is intent on rescuing America from the bleak future of collectivism of the type we now see unfolding in Venezuela, and have seen in Cuba and Zimbabwe where the Political swamp dwellers in Wash. DC, were taking us.
Bush stands as a sterling example of what’s wrong with the GOP. America has moved on and the leadership has ignored that fact. Donald Trump hasn’t! Trump is a fighter and the GOP leadership isn’t. They don’t know how. Bipartisanship is a death wish and since Trump’s election, the “collectivists” of all parties, have gone nuts. In this first year so far, Trump has accomplished more to rescue America from the evils of Obama’s socialism than have decades of political ‘go along to get along’ policies with their silly ‘hands across the aisle’ and political camaraderie nonsense between looters. American’s are sick of it and that’s why we now have Donald Trump.
Bush came out to protect his “Compassionate Conservatism” brand of Americanism that happily embraced the Socialist enemy, the Democrats, as bipartisan co-equals in promoting Americas health and happiness. The Establishment Republicans, for decades, have missed the whole point of the cunning scheme the Democrats have employees to “fundamentally change America.” They’re still confused as John McCain so clearly demonstrates.
The Democrats, employing Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as their battle plan, have set Americas political agenda almost since the candidacy of George McGovern in 1972. They have plotted against American conservative values with tactics of political correctness, diversity, multiculturalism, racism, remorse and lies while the Establishment GOP’ers have totally failed to realize the serious damage their bipartisanship was doing to America.
Ultimately, content with second place by enjoying the scraps of political comradeship allotted to them by the Democrats, they finally achieved total power with promises unkept, promises never intended to be kept, totally unprepared to govern, and demonstrably incapable of doing so now that they do have both houses of Congress. They have been left reeling in horror when a fighting President finally puts their feet to the fire and forces them to make Constitutional decisions contrary to their usual norms of capitulation to Democrats.
The Democrats have all but destroyed themselves. They are in disarray across the entire country and divided in even knowing which direction to take their party: to the middle or further left. The Democrats still in Congress are incapable of doing anything other than obstruct and delay and the Republicans let ‘em get away with it. Republican leadership, or whatever it’s called, simply doesn’t have the killer instinct to drive a stake into the heart of the vampire Socialist Democrat party, even prostate as they are. They still speak of bipartisanship.
Reading the text of Bush’s speech, I just imagined it was spoken by Bill Clinton. There was nothing said that Clinton or even Barack Obama wouldn’t have said which explains why Bush’s presidency was a failure. Even Nancy Pelosi, despite reports of her oncoming dementia, still insists on impeaching Donald W. Bush. The Republicans don’t recognize they are in a fight for America’s soul. The fraternity club they have co-existed in is rapidly coming to an end so, they can dry off Bush and send him back to his burrow. He’s not needed anymore. Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em!. (20Oct17).
What We Learn From Polls
Beware the pop quizzes the various internet sites ask of its readers. I personally like to consult Bob Livingston’s Personal Liberty site where they ask a serious of ‘loaded’ questions requiring only a “yes” or “no” answer, without qualification. For example, today’s series of questions were:
1) Is President Trump mentally fit to serve? Yes or no? Of course he is and he demonstrates it daily. He’s running circles around Congress, putting them into positions where they have been legislatively moribund in their decision making abilities, not wanting to threaten their financial supporters. Add in the treachery of six Republican Senators, John McCain primary among them, the wailings of the deranged media and the question becomes, just who is mentally fit?
2) Should President Trump have kept Steve Bannon on board at the White House? Yes or No? He could have, but Bannon best serves Trump from the outside where he promises to attack all Deep State Republicans for removal, which brings us to the next question…..
3) Is the GOP headed for major upsets in the 2018 midterms? Yes or No? Yes, but it will not be the Democrats replacing feckless Republicans, it will be candidates from the Conservative Tea Party side of the Republican party. Democrats are going all in for Marxism. That won’t do!
4) Is Trump’s attack on NBC an assault on their 1st Amendment Rights? Yes or No? The President has a 1st Amendment right to defend himself just as NBC enjoys a 1st Amendment to promote Democrat propaganda against him. It’s a two way street, isn’t it?
5) Does a gun registry threaten the 2nd Amendment? Yes or No? It certainly does. A registry, as we saw in Australia, permitted a rogue socialist government to arbitrarily seize all citizens guns because government knew where they were located. Australians are now being overrun by street criminals, with guns, and violent muslims pushing the envelope of their silly demands.
6) Is Roy Moore the beginning of a broader conservative revolt in the GOP? Yes or No? Of course he is. Despite Senate Majority Leader McConnell’s throwing millions of NRC donations in support of his picked candidate, and the Administration’s support, Moore won. It’s a start.
7) Should the U.S. launch a military strike on North Korea? Yes or No? Not peremptorily. South Korea is in the way. It should be their decision, unless NK launches a first strike. We can push them though, by shooting down their next test launch missile.
8) Should bump stocks and similar devices be banned? Yes or No? The question now is should they be seized? Stores have sold out and one can be fashioned by any home grown fabricator of which America is gifted with a vast rich pool. Full automatic weapons are illegal to possess without the hard to get ATF tax stamp. Another law will do nothing to stop violence with guns,…. or knives, or hammers or cars, for that matter.
9) Time for Nancy Pelosi to retire? Yes or No? A silly question, isn’t it? Absolutely not. For the GOP, Nancy is the gift that keeps on giving.
10) Will the GOP establishment sabotage Roy Moore? Yes or No? Yes, they’ll try but, it will only serve to confirm what voters everywhere already know, draining the swamp will not be complete until the establishment GOPer’s are all swept away too. That’s my view. What’s yours?Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now go get ‘em. (16Oct17)
The Power of Shouting
When political correctness trumps the truth to suppress alternate opinions, it is because PC is accompanied by a bodyguard of fear. Fear of being shouted down without benefit of dialogue, fear of being ostracized by one’s peers in the workplace, and fear of losing a job because you, the ‘offender,’ was not part of the team. PC is politically corrupt, forged in lies and totally engaged in cognitive dissonance. These people are not just tendentious, they are outright evil in smothering the opinions of others and killing debate.
In its present disguise, coming to us to protect feel good policies supposedly to empower the powerless, etc., the practitioners of PC reveal themselves as haters of Western culture, haters of cultural traditions, Christians, Confederate statues and community norms. Disagree and the organized mobs of PC will invade your space, tear up your copy, commandeer your speaking platform and seize the outlets of digital communication to attack the offender until he is gone.
Cloaked in fake news, outright lies, disinformation and threats of retribution, the power of shouting in the hands of the PC crowd, becomes the tool of oppression and victims, who fail to submit are usually never heard from again. Another definition of Political Correctness, is found in the word hypocrisy.
Political correctness over several decades in Hollywood, has protected a financial movie maker, Harvey Weinstein, from the exposure of his outright debauchery, indecency to women and his predatory sexual misconduct. Exactly the same thing happened in the Clinton presidency and within the priesthood of the Catholic Church. Overwhelmed with pedophiles as they were, decent priests, at all levels of the church’s hierarchy, suffered the power of silent shouting.
For Weinstein, instead of the censure a righteous and decent community would have heaped on him, he was lavished with praise even by his frightened victims. Some women have bravely come forward to reveal Weinstein’s depredations against them. One young model even had the audacity to record his very own words in his attempt to coerce her into his bed. The truth at last, PC be damned, has opened the floodgates of hypocrisy. Harvey Weinstein’s reputation cannot be salvaged. Of the many luminaries seen in his hundreds of photographs, none have the PC power to save him. ReHab will not suffice, forgiveness is for God. A prison cell will do it.
Harvey Weinstein will be lost. the Political Correctness that has enveloped Hollywood will only subside when it is challenged by brave defenders of the truth, not to mention the box office. The power of Hollywood, like the power of Senatorial RiNO’s, may be on the wane. Nothing lasts as long as nothing, and when dysfunction becomes the norm and predators bask in its glory, once revealed, the whole house of cards come tumbling down, to…nothing. RIP Hollywood.
Here’s my final thoughts on PC. It all comes from a group of non-thinkers who enjoy “liberal privilege.” That simply means never having to say they’re wrong. Rules that apply to others do not apply to Liberals. In our liberal cities we see that laws to protect public and private property can be suspended in order to allow leftists liberals the room they need to air their PC feelings.
Liberal privilege is Political Correctness and nothing more. They cannot survive without it and that’s why we are overwhelmed by it, but, thanks to Harvey Weinstein, the Catholic Priesthood, and Clinton’s Democrat party, all of it, we may be entering a new healing phase. When did common decency and shame lose its power of shouting?
Remember, freedom is the goal, the Constitution is the way. Now, go get ‘em! (12Oct17)
