Watch Who You Are Calling a Clown


We are often fooled in how a person's public persona appears
to us under different circumstances. I found an example of it
when I recall how Maria Rosario Pilar Martinez Molina Baeza,
"Charo" for short, was perceived by many people as a flake
when doing her cuchi cuchi on TV. In a matter of fact she is
an intelligent business woman and a multi talented one, when
as a child she studied guitar under Andres Segovia and is now
considered one of the foremost classic Flamenco guitarists in
the world.

Errors are evident because of political inexperience, that the
liberal media and pundits are exploiting to forcing us to believe
Hillary Clinton's opponent is a cuchi-cuchi, when as a matter of
fact, Donald Trump is a skilled administrator and a successful
business executive who also hosted a highly regarded TV
show.

If Hillary, a.k.a. liar, could do a cuchi-cuchi, maybe people might
like her, but alas the only thing she's good at is lying. An attribute
many of her followers respect.

United We Stand, Divided We Fall!


That phrase has been attributed to that fabled Greek story teller, Aesop, and by a passage in the bible (Mark 3:25) which stated, “And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand”. As a Republican, I think that phrase has enormous meaning, especially in the upcoming presidential election. Quite few disgruntled Republicans, have stated that because of differences between themselves and the Republican candidate, Donald Trump, they will not vote for him or endorse him for president. The Democrats, on the other hand, join together no matter what their differences are and prepared to win the next election. The Republicans, some not all, seem to carry their differences to the extreme and do just the opposite out of principle.

I believe that our country is basically a center-right country, but we Republicans consistently lose elections to center-left candidates representing the Democrats. It seems to be that we are always grabbing defeat out of the jaws of victory. Are we that stupid? The answer is probably YES!

Most of us agree that politics is a “contact sport” (figuratively not literally) and most realize that most all politicians are loose with the truth and facts when trying to get elected or re-elected. The Republicans realize that losing the election to Hillary Clinton, would be a disaster, but some “ideological thick heads” would rather win the battle, but lose the war. They totally ignore the admonition by the late president, Ronald Reagan, who came up with the idea of the 80% solution to political differences. He said that if you can agree with a Republican candidate on 80% of the issues as opposed to 0% to 10% of the issues supported by his opponent (most likely a Democrat), you should vote for that Republican candidate. I'm sure most all Republicans can agree with 80% (or more) of what Donald Trump has proposed and is running on, so why withhold your vote over some personal or petty differences? Just the one fact that Trump has said that he would nominate conservative, originalist Supreme Court judges, should be reason enough to cast your vote for Trump. The other issues most Republicans can and should agree with are closing the border and tightening up our immigration policies, becoming energy independent, lowering marginal tax rates for all taxpayers, promoting school choice, less government regulation, and taking most of the special interests out of politics. All those items Trump agrees with, so, why the reluctance to swallow your pride and give Trump your vote?

So, for a few items or personal foibles that you don't agree with Trump on, you'd rather see Hillary Clinton win? To me, that is the height of stupidity, with all due respect. Do you really want 4 more years of the failed Obama policies, or 2 or 3 more liberal Supreme Court justices on the Supreme Court to overturn some items in the 1st and 2nd Amendments? If yes, that's what you will get if Hillary Clinton gets elected, a flawed candidate with more baggage than Macy's has in its luggage departments. It's almost like cutting off your nose to spite your face.

Remember, united we stand, divided we fall.

MORT’s meanderings

The result of no education is ignorance.
Everyone got that?  Anyone in the class still unsure about what this statement means?
     All right, let’s proceed.   
Super-Liberal former President of Princeton University Woodrow Wilson, was elected President in 1913, long before the term Liberal was conceived. From all that I’ve read, he proved to be an intellectual snob, an avowed anti-black racist and the first leader of this nation to champion the Socialist ideology.  What a guy.  The Russians engaged in a revolution in 1917 that saw Socialism and Communism gain power over that vast society.  That ideology when translated into action by a series of tyrannical leaders in what was eventually named, The Soviet Union, proved to be totally impractical and was the first failure on a grand scale of that pipe-dream.
Innumerable political feather-brains have been mesmerized by the Socialist ideology, believing in its pipe-dream premise.  A bit of education in World History would, or should, be enough to convince reasonable young people that this system simply doesn’t work.  Lacking in such education, the result is a preponderance of ignorance.
Similarly, a reading of factual papers written contemporaneously about the actual proceedings and the men who founded this nation would, or should, be sufficient to convince reasonable Americans who have the slightest curiosity about the subject – that The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights are the most perfect documents ever conceived by man to effectively and fairly govern himself and all other men of good will.  No education in American History? . . bad!
We live in an age when there has been a marked drop-off in the number of young people who regularly attend faith-based services thus, there are far fewer chances  for people to acquire and absorb the practical and beneficial aspects of religions that teach principled, moral behavior.  Once again, the result of no education is ignorance.
And finally, those who have not had the good fortune to have served in one of the branches of our United States Armed Forces, have been deprived of an education in discipline, teamwork, pride in service and love of country that can be gleaned in no other way.  Without this specific experience, there is no way to fully understand what the Military is, what it does, or the vital importance of its existence. Sadly, for anyone to have missed this unique education means quite frankly, that they are more than likely to be ignorant of the full understanding of ‘Patriotism’.  No education = ignorance.

Like it Never Really Happened!


That's the advertising phrase , “Like it Never Really Happened”, that the cleanup disaster company “Serv-Pro” uses to remind customers of their services. To hear and watch the media talk about the presidential campaign, you'd think that Hillary Clinton has led an exemplary life with little or no conflicts of interest or breeches of law. The media acts like a paid “Super Pac” of the Democrat Party, Democrats good, Republicans bad. They seem to completely overlook all of Hillary's indiscretions over the past 30 years, it's “Like it Never Really Happened”.

It seems that every 4 years the Democrats trot out the same old scenario, the Republicans are sexists, racists, bigots, homophobes, nativists, and a host of other epithets to demonize the Republicans (and now Trump). It seems that those damning words are okay, according to the media, if directed at the Republicans, but when Trump calls Hillary Clinton a bigot, the media goes crazy in pseudo-indignation and alarm. A perfect example of hypocrisy in action.

For example, CNN in their political reporting, brings up Trump in about 80% of its political stories, mostly all negative or confrontational. Interviewing Trump, or any Republican for that matter, will elicit pointed, biased questions to make the Republicans look insensitive, uncaring, and “stupid”. When a Democrat is interviewed (not Hillary, as she avoids most all interviews with a passion) the questions are generally considered “softball” questions to prop up their agenda, which is Liberal/Progressive. The bias is quite obvious and extensive to any fair-minded person listening to the give and take of the interviews.

Take this scenario, Trump makes a speech reaching out to the black and Hispanic communities, groups which he was criticized for by not addressing those communities concerns by the Democrats and the media in the past. But, instead of getting credit or praise for extending an “olive branch”, he was called a panderer, a phony, and for being insincere. You could say that Trump is damned if does and damned if he doesn't - a no-win situation that seems to be applied to Trump and the Republicans and not the Democrats. They call Trump a flip-flopper, but never point out that Hillary has flip-flopped on many issues including gay marriage, NAFTA, TPP, the Keystone Pipeline, and the war in Iraq, among other instances. It seems that she can do no wrong in the eyes of an adoring media. It is a “see no evil”, “hear no evil”, or “speak no evil” scenario that is so obviously blatantly biased that it that it is laughable, if it wasn't so sinister.

From now until the November election, all the focus of the media (the “lame stream media”) will be on demonizing and destroying Donald Trump personally and not debating the state of the economy (which has had worst recovery since the 1940's – ex. a 1.1% GDP for the 2nd quarter of 2016)), the racial unrest in Democrat controlled cities, stemming the flow of illegal immigration, and the turmoil in the world exacerbated by the policies of our country as directed by Obama, Clinton, and the Democrats. It seems like nothing really happened during the reign of Obama and Clinton to cause this disastrous climate in our country and around the world.

Misfits, Deplorables and Slime


No doubt there are people down on their luck and in dire need.
In many cases a circumstance not of their own making; perhaps
due to the economic policies of our government.

The liberals claim to be compassionate and caring while
disparaging efforts of conservatives for not emptying the
shelves and their pockets for assistance to them.

Among the needy are a slew of misfits flying under the banner
 of need, who don't qualify for assistance. Most are registered
democrats benefiting under the DNC entitlement umbrella.

They belong to paid groups, like Black Lives Matter and Occupy
Wall Street by behind the scene manipulators, responsible for
filling many of the seats of government with other misfits, like
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and
a few in the Black Caucus.

At the top of the list is a former Senator and Secretary of State,
running for POTUS, who by her past record or lack of, is
proving to be the head misfit!

Hillary Clinton's remark calling half of the backers and voters
for Donald Trump, a basket of deplorables is unconscionable.

In no way can using the term "misfit" be equated to her insulting
terminology, "deplorable" to describe patriotic, hard working,
responsible Americans and the people dedicating their service to
benefit our safety and quality of life.

It can be said, the tactics of many wealthy, influential advocates,
on behalf of Hillary Clinton's campaign, can be termed slimy, by
distorting or denying the truths about her outrageous scandals;
new ones that seem to be surfacing everyday.

What's deplorable is 35 years of Hillary Clinton missteps.
Who sounds more presidential is starting to pivot toward Donald
Trump, with a noticeable change in his demeanor and his offerings
that are not stale.
