Go Left Go Right

What makes two people who grow up in a similar environment become so politically different? This is very perplexing to me. Where I live here in central California, a candidate who I went to grade school with, remained in touch during our college years, and road tripped together a few times, is challenging the GOP incumbent, Jeff Denham. I am going to refrain from posting his name here, but he has been endorsed by Planned Parenthood and the CSEA. Just do a quick google search, and he will pop up.

Everyone who has spent more than one second reading my blog is fully aware that I am a very conservative Christian guy. I grew up in a conservative, two parent home. My pop owned his business, and mom stayed at home. The guy that I went to school with, partied with, and did typical guy stuff with all those years ago, had a very similar upbringing. So why did I see the light of the right he went to the darkness of the left?

I don’t have the answer. I don’t know why folks think that abortion is not murder. I don’t know why folks want to reward criminals with free citizenship. I don’t know why folks believe medical insurance and medical care is a right. I don’t see why folks don’t understand that the more government is involved in the private business sector, the more expensive it becomes and the quality declines.

As the election draws near, I will post some of the acts I witnessed first hand that he will have to answer for. I have been contacted by a chapter member of the GOP that wants to hear what I witnessed. I am a bit torn, Jeff Denham is not a conservative; he is pro amnesty and mandated healthcare guy. But he is not a progressive.

The Right To Remain Silent

Protect Our Borders!

Protect Our Borders!

The Right To Remain Silent

Don’t speak to me

about your rights,

if you sneak through

the fence at night.

Or if you cross the border

in a van,

driven by

the greedy man.

Or if you sail

on board a raft,

or pay your way

with bribe or graft.

You cannot steal

what’s given free,

to those

who do it properly.

So, the only right

you have I see,

is the right to leave

so please feel free.

Then if and when

you should come back,

with the legal papers

in your pack,

then I will listen

to your speech,

about your rights

all, and each.

Tolerance? or Coercion?

I have been … “uninspired” to write because I have nothing new to say. We face the same battles each day, against an un-American … maybe even anti-American US administration that is successfully tearing apart the moral, social, and commercial strata of our nation with little to no resistance.

Yet, there have been … and continue to be “rumbles.” If I had to give a report, I’d say the dissatisfaction among the American people is spreading and churning up pockets of thought. In general, “Get out of my face” thought, although I did see a “Ready for Hillary – 2016″ sticker the other day, and I wept in prayer.

I live 10 minutes from the Franklin Regional High School where the stabbings occurred last week. What could cause a decent young man to flip out like this? “Water cooler talk” around here this week has focused on “bullying.” Yet, it…

Croatia: Benghazy Scrubber Scrubs Western Balkans

The Conservative Hill Billy:

This never made the US news!

Originally posted on Croatia, the War, and the Future:

Croatia Forum

Lately, Victoria Nuland, US Assistant Secretary of State for Europe and Eurasia, is best known, or, rather, notorious, for her role in objecting to the initial set of the Benghazi attack talking points when she reportedly asked that references to al Qaeda and previous CIA warnings about threats posed to U.S. diplomats in Libya be scrubbed from the document. I.e., she is said to have demanded that (accurate) assessments of terrorist involvement be scrubbed, along with references to (accurate) intelligence warnings about the deteriorating security situation in Benghazi leading up to the 9/11/2012 attack on US diplomatic compound in which four Americans were murdered. Nuland’s role provided the closest thing to smoking-gun evidence of a cover up.

Then I assume all of us remember when in January/February of this year on YouTube, there was uploaded an audio recording of a confidential telephone conversation between Nuland and U.S. Ambassador to Ukraine…

Is Administrative Law Unlawful ?

Originally posted on The Conservative Citizen:

From the Constitution of the United States:

ARTICLE I, SECTION 1.

All legislative powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.


When we talk of Administrative law, we are speaking of an extra-legal add on, which has very little (if any) base in the Constitution. If you are not familiar with it, here is a link to an introductory lecture POL611 . That’s how it is conceptualized these days. But is it constitutional at all? That’s different story. I’ve spoken of this several times lately once at Jess’ Watchtower, and on Nebraska Energy Observer here, and here. It’s an important concept. Much of the content here is taken from a series on The Power Line Bloghere, here, here, and here. Don’t panic, they’re quite short…

San Fran’s Favorite Moonbat: We Should Treat Illegal Alien Children Like ‘Baby Jesus’

The same woman who fervently supports late-term abortion

Let’s just let Pelosi speak for herself, here. This is also the same woman who claims to be a devout Catholic. Uh-huh. Cardinals and Bishops alike have called for her excommunication in light of her support for abortion.

Conservative Blacks Ain’t Got No Bidness At This Week’s NAACP Convention

Originally posted on Rat Nation:

Musn’t stray from the liberal plantation, y’all

The NAACP is holding its annual convention in Las Vegas this week. This year’s theme? All in for justice and equality.” And, hey – what better venue could there be for fighting against injustice and inequality than the posh Mandalay Bay resort?

Speaking of “justice and equality,” it doesn’t appear that “normal” (liberal) blacks at the conference believe that the nice-sounding theme applies to black conservatives. Shocked? Me neither.

Undeterred, the shunned black conservatives held their own get-together – “Empower Liberty Summit” – in the same hotel, directly across the hall from the NAACP event. No word yet on whether there were any drive-by shootings from the other side.

Why!?

Why does our government send America’s bravest and best to supposedly fight for our safety and security, and at the same time allow illegal, unknown aliens to flood across the southern border?

Why did our government trade 5 Muslom war criminals for one American deserter, and refuse do nothing for a troubled war hero who made a wrong turn into Mexico?

Why does are government harass Israel for defending their people from Muslom aggressors who use their women and children as shields?

Why is “Star Wars” technology work for Israel, but not for America? (Remember the crap Storm Mr. Reagan caught for this?)

Why are we told that the wealthy are mean and evil, by politicians, and a president who are wealthy?

Why is diversity good everywhere except the NBA and black colleges?

Why do fuel prices stay so high while we are tapping more of our countries natural resources?

Lastly, I know why God and His Word are so important, wish more people did.

History lesson on “nation of immigrants” mumbo-jumbo

Originally posted on Refugee Resettlement Watch:

In the middle of a piece by Patrick Buchanan yesterday, here at World Net Daily.  He gives a brief timeline that you need to know when someone in your community tries to shut you up with that tired old declaration that “we are a nation of immigrants,” and therefore we are expected to take in the world forever.

Below is Buchanan after explaining that our founders were all of similar background, religion, culture and language.

Later, in our history we abruptly slowed immigration for 40 years because we were overloaded (graph at right shows the dramatic slowdown). 

We were not a nation of immigrants in 1789.

They came later. From 1845-1849, the Irish fleeing the famine. From 1890-1920, the Germans. Then the Italians, Poles, Jews and other Eastern Europeans. Then, immigration was suspended in 1924.

From 1925 to 1965, the children and grandchildren of those immigrants were assimilated, Americanized…
