New Sheriff in town

 

Since President Obama was elected eight years ago, the liberal media has become the media mafia, with Obama as the anti-American godfather. Fortunately for United States, there’s Fox News and a new sheriff in town named Donald Trump -- and his all-American posse.

 

Donald Trump was just sworn-in as the 45th President of the United States. He will be working tirelessly to give America back to the people who will govern themselves as a government of the people, by the people and for the people.

 

Ruinous rule by former president Obama and the liberal elite is over. President Trump, his administrative posse and the Republican Congress will protect and defend America against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

 

Indeed, there is a new Sheriff in town, backed by our Constitution. America will be reformed, recover, prosper and be great again for all of us….

President Obama’s last days of chaos

 

President Obama and his administration have made it painfully clear that his last days in office will be consumed by attacking President-Elect Donald Trump, and doing as much more damage to America as he can – along with hateful liberal Democrats in Congress -- leaving a legacy of social, political, economic, anger, division and chaos with our domestic and national security.

 

Indeed, Mr. Obama’s legacy will be replete with an explosion of serious crimes committed by blacks and Hispanics, enormous increases of blacks in movies, television series, commercials and the overall entertainment industry with an emphasis on black lives and open borders as the only things that matter – regardless of the deaths and damages inflicted on society.

 

Worse, the outgoing president will be responsible for the proliferation of ISIS and terrorism in America and throughout the world – the Florida airport ISIS assassinations, Orlando police officer assassination, the Chicago murder rate, and the vicious racial hate crimes against a mentally disabled white male by  four black males and females being the latest cases of hate and violence.

 

And he says he will remain in Washington to keep up what has become his reckless and ruinous work against America -- with his former attorney general, Eric Holder taking up the defense of California’s un-American activities – as the painful beat goes on and on – liberal press included…. Thankfully, our new president, Twitter Trump will be in office soon – hopefully, backed by a Republican Congress with guts!

John Kerry: Un-American

 

Secretary of State John Kerry proved that he is un-American by his stance against Israel in the United Nations move to condemn Israel’s settlements wherein President Obama’s administration abstained from the vote. Of course, this is nothing new for Kerry or Obama since they are both anti-American.

 

Indeed, John Kerry demonstrated being anti-American when, as a member of the U.S. military, he came out against the Viet Nam war testifying against America before Congress. Since then, he became a U.S. Senator, married a wealthy business woman and continued undermining America.

 

Worse, Kerry stands with President Obama’s insidious legacy – with a Democrat Congress -- of war against America’s military, economy, healthcare, police, domestic security -- and national security -- by proliferating the rise of radical Islamic terrorism against America and the world.

 

Fortunately, the American people fought back and elected Donald Trump as the next president. Alas, with President Trump and a Republican Congress, we will survive, recover, be strong and prosper again with true freedom, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Obama and Brown’s spite

 

President Obama has commuted 178 felony prisoners’ sentences, and California Gov. Jerry Brown has commuted one felon’s sentence and pardoned a total of 1,258 felony prisoners in spiteful acts against the public’s interests and safety – striking dangerous blows against our domestic security.

 

Coupled with AB 109 and Proposition 47, Brown has released thousands of felons to prey upon the people of California.

 

Even worse, President Obama failed to veto a bad U.N. resolution to spite Israel, while Governor Brown continues to bolster sanctuary cities throughout the state, further endangering our national security against terrorism.

 

Indeed, the only thing Mr. Obama has left to do against America is to empty Guantanamo and pardon Bergdahl, Manning, and Snowden to secure his destructive legacy against America and the world – not mention doubling the national debt -- while none dare call it treason.

President Obama’s damage

 

President Obama is bent on doing as much damage to America as he can before leaving office. Indeed, his latest edicts, commutations and pardons are designed to inflict as much damage as possible to the oil industry and America’s domestic security.

 

Coupled with eight years of relentless attacks against America’s coal, oil and gas energy resources, releasing criminal predators upon the public, and his war against America’s police, he has recklessly inflicted untold damage against our society, our economy and our safety.

 

Worse, Mr. Obama has intentionally allowed open borders and sanctuary cities and marijuana to flourish, subjecting our people to increased gangs, crime, drugs, murder and the infection of our children without remorse.

 

Even worse, President Obama has inflicted deadly damage on our national security by blatantly allowing the proliferation of ISIS against the Middle East, America and the world by unleashing relentless attacks against Christians and humanity.

 

Alas, Obama’s last act of defiance will likely be to empty Guantanamo and to pardon blatant traitors Bergdahl, Manning and Snowden.

President Obama’s press conference

 

President Obama’s last press conference was obviously rigged with predetermined questions from the White House (Pravda) Press Corps. All Mr. Obama wanted to talk about was his feigned accomplishments, which were done despite his abuse of power and deceit.

 

And his press complied with questions about Russia hacking the election, helping Syrian refugees and criticizing President-elect Trump in disguise. Too much for one reporter who fainted.

 

Indeed, there were no questions or answers about national and domestic security to wit: the deadly world plague of ISIS terrorism, or the American plague of crime and drugs, all created and highly intensified by President Obama’s gross failures.

 

America’s worst president, indeed.

Bergdahl pardon?

 

I believe deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who asked President Obama for a pardon, will in fact be pardoned by President Obama on his last day in office. Indeed it will be a national security travesty to pardon a traitor, as it was a far worse act of treason to trade five Taliban terrorist leaders for Bergdahl’s release. Surely, considering  President Obama is responsible for the proliferation of ISIS and terrorism in the world, he will have been the enemy within during his eight years in office.

California vs. America

 

State’s rights is one thing, however California leaving the union is not idle talk. Indeed, the once golden state has been turned into a dictatorial state with a socialist Democrat governor and supermajority legislature rejecting the U.S. Constitution and federal law – which for all intents and purposes means that it has been a separate nation for a long time – increasingly abusing most of our citizens with punishing taxes and regulations, and a relentless invasion of illegal immigrants, exposing us to an increasing epidemic of crime.

 

As for the remainder of America, Socialist Democrat President/King Barrack Obama has done nearly the same thing as California has done in just under 8 years to the other 49 states. Indeed, the first black president has gone to the extremes of making African-Americans superior to all other races, dominating everything with about 14 percent of the population – believing all others are inferior racists.

 

Indeed, our nation has yet to suffer the full consequences of Mr. Obama’s insidious superiority complex reign, which would have been even worse with the insidious superiority complex of the first woman president, Hillary Clinton. Thank God, hopefully, President-elect Donald Trump’s “Make America great again’ complex and a Republican Congress will save us, our national/domestic security and the country.

Trump should put loyal backers in top spots

 

Donald Trump’s top priorities should be to dump hypocritical Romney from Secretary of State consideration, nominate Gen. David H. Petraeus to the position as a national security warrior secretary of state against ISIS, Syria, Russia and Iran, and pick former New York Mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani as the leader of Homeland Security for our domestic security.

Stein/Clinton insult voters

 

It is bad enough that Hillary Clinton sent her supporters on a devious mission to intimidate Donald Trump electors into changing their votes to Clinton.

 

Now Clinton’s failed Green Party candidate, Jill Stein has launched a recount campaign to topple Donald Trump’s election in the key states of Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, which is undoubtedly at Hillary Clinton’s direction and will be joined by Clinton’s supporters.

 

Surely, bitter Hillary Clinton refuses to accept the decision of Trumps electors and voters, even though she said that the only reason she relented and conceded the election was at the urging of President Obama.

 

All the more reasons that Donald Trump is saving America from Obama’s ruinous record and an ultra-dangerous election of Clinton. Indeed, January 20th, 2017 can’t come soon enough for America to reform, recover and prosper.

Calls for a vote recount are just plain desperate

 

It is bad enough that Hillary Clinton sent her supporters on a mission to intimidate President-elect Donald Trump electors into changing their votes for her, now  Jill Stein (the Green Party’s presidential candidate) has launched a vote recount campaign in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania. This was probably a direction from Clinton to topple Trump’s election, which will surely be supported by her followers.

 

It looks like Clinton refuses to accept the decision of Trump’s electors and voters, since it’s reported that she conceded the election only after receiving a call from President Obama urging her to do so.

 

This is all the more evidence that President-elect Trump is saving America from Obama’s ruinous record and an ultra-dangerous election of Clinton.

 

Indeed, Jan. 20, 2017, can’t come soon enough for America to reform, recover and prosper.

From Obama to Trump

 

During the Clinton-caused economic meltdown and presidential election of 2008, the Democrat Party, and the insidious media, Hollywood and Academia cartel seized on the politically correct opportunity to elect Senator Barrack Obama as the first black president of the United States.

 

Of course, the cartel knew that President Obama would lead into the two-term tyrannies of overwhelming government together with the first term Democrat Congress establishing forced national health care, the wars on coal energy and finance industry, and unconstitutional wars against small business and hardworking Americans.

 

Worse, the second term was replete with a war against the police, surrendering the war against terrorism in the Middle East causing the rise of ISIS, terrorist attacks here and around the world, and his deadly deal with nuclear Iran.

 

Fortunately, the arrogant and un-American cartel failed to elect evil Hillary Clinton as the first woman president.

 

Indeed, real American states and voters rejected the cartel and the deeply corrupted Clintons, elected the Donald Trump, Mike Pence team, and retained the Republican Congress to bring back America from the edge of social, political and economic ruin. Clearly, there is hope to rebuild and to restore our national and domestic security.

 

And, to increase our efforts to make America great again – the way we once were, before the Democrats turned to the ruinous socialist devil….

Hispanic, radical left anarchy

 

The core of anarchy, demonstrations, riots and violence against president elect, Donald Trump rests with Hispanics, mostly students and illegals.

 

Obviously, the anarchy has expanded throughout the country. Most disturbing is the organized Hispanic anarchy in Los Angeles, led by Union Del Barrio furthering the aggression of La Raza, which is intent on taking back California, New Mexico, Texas and the West, taken from Mexico by the Mexican American War.

 

Indeed, other groups carrying large Mexican flags, they express hatred for the (imperialism) of the U.S. government, including the Obama administration, Hillary Clinton, and of course Donald Trump. Del Barrio organized the current demonstrations in Los Angeles, including the violence.

 

Considering the vast numbers of Hispanic illegals in America, liberal sanctuary cities, and the fragmented enforcement of the border and ICE, this post presidential election has become a real and present danger to America and our people. Decisive action to preserve national and domestic security is vital.

 

Worse, anti-American George Soros and his wild Democrat billionaire donor bunch are financing the radical left’s anarchy, dangerously exacerbated by the liberal media.

 

Coupled with California’s liberal Democrat government turning a blind eye to the release of criminal illegals from prison, refusing to cooperate with U.S. immigration laws, the legalization of marijuana, punishing taxation against tobacco smokers, the enormous cost if miseducation, and war of treacherous teacher unions’ war against non-union charter schools, California taxpayers and the people lose.

Surely, both of those high school and college students should be expelled. Free speech simply doesn’t apply.

Election determines whether destruction continues

 

Since the election of President Obama, our democratic republic has come increasingly under attack by the liberal media and the politically powerful -- so much so, that we are in eminent danger of losing our national security and our democracy to the evils of socialism.

 

Though the Republican Party has the majority in Congress, it has been gutted and weakened by wrath of the previous Democrat Party majority of Mr. Obama’s first term and that contingent’s tyrannical legislation. This has left our country mortally wounded. Mr. Obama’s second term has been replete with edicts and executive orders, pouring salt in the wounds and seriously dividing the nation.

 

If corrupt and criminal Hillary and Bill Clinton are elected co-presidents under the fraud of intimidation and political correctness, we are in danger of continuing the downward spiral.  With little hope, the only thing standing in the way of overwhelming socialist power is Republican candidate and freedom fighter Donald Trump. God help us if he and we don’t win.

 

Hopefully, five days from now, we can begin the delivery and recovery of our Constitution, democracy and freedom from evil.

Campaign chaos

 

Local, state and federal campaign chaos, exacerbated by biased television news and the press, abounds throughout the nation in this presidential election year like no other.

 

Indeed, Hillary Clinton has lied, cheated and personally profited throughout her political life bound to be the first woman president, supported by President Obama in his legacy to divide and weaken the nation. He is currently supporting Kamala Harris over the more experienced Loretta Sanchez for California U.S. senator in a racial move, and he is placing Syrian refugees throughout the country without notifying local governments.

 

In a local San Bernardino County, California campaign for county supervisor, scurrilous Victorville City candidate Angela Valles is attempting to unseat a very competent incumbent, Robert Lovingood by being dishonest and hateful. Surely, Valles is more qualified to work for corrupt Hillary Clinton.

 

Alas, it’s time to take America back with a president Donald Trump, a Republican California U.S. senator, keep Supervisor Lovingood, and send the 23 Syrian refugees planted in Victorville by Mr. Obama back where they came from -- and end the chaos.

Execution of Sgt. Owen

 

As a retired law enforcement officer, I am outraged by the execution of Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Sgt. Owen by a career criminal who should not have been out of prison. Indeed, it is obvious and frightening that President Obama and California Governor Brown are responsible for the executioner’s heinous act because of Obama’s war against the police and Brown turning violent criminals loose to prey upon Californians and the American people.

 

Clearly, Sgt. Owen’s blood is on their reckless hands, and those are crimes against society and the people.

 

Worse, the assassination of many police officers throughout the country has been brought on by President Obama’s aggressive Black Lives Matter movement and the Attorney General. It doesn’t matter to Mr. Obama or Mr. Brown that the police are the first line of defense against terrorists, invaders and criminals in America.

 

Of course, the reasons for increased crime is because of President Obama’s edicts to release violent federal prisoners. Likewise, Governor Brown’s AB 109 – and related legislation -- Proposition 47 and the current ballot initiative, Proposition 57, have and will release thousands of felony state prisoners. Indeed, the public and police are being placed at ever increasing risk.

 

Surely, both President Obama and Governor Brown must be replaced by responsible people of real character and integrity – federal and state guardians and patriots.

The war on police is anarchy

 

The insidious war on police fomented by President Obama is  anarchy. Recklessly attacking our first line of defense is un-American and places America in danger in these perilous times of terrorism. Indeed, the latest attack, a deputy sheriff’s sergeant was shot in Lancaster.

 

As a retired 41-year veteran in law enforcement and the criminal justice system, I am deeply troubled and offended by what has been going on throughout President Obama’s two terms in office, which has put my family and fellow Americans in extreme peril.

 

Clearly, Mr. Obama is not only responsible for increasing violent crimes and murders, he is responsible for Russian aggression, a nuclear Iran and the proliferation of ISIS and terrorism in the world.

 

Hopefully, Donald Trump will turn things around and allow America to survive and prosper, instead of Hillary Clinton continuing to steer America down the road to ruin.

Irresponsible liberal media

 

President Bush attempted to put a stop to the results, but Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and others stood in his way. Certainly, President Obama has exacerbated the insidious problem, which is leading to another, probably worse, housing and financial collapse.      

 

Slamming Donald Trump comes as no surprise from the liberal media, but when they blindly endorse Hillary Clinton with her history of malfeasance, abuse of power and corruption, that hurts America and the people.

 

Indeed, the Los Angeles Times front page article, “Scope of Trump’s lies unmatched,” and their lengthy half page, “An easy decision: Hillary for president,” editorial endorsement overlooks Clinton’s devious and unlawful conflicts of interests record, that’s irresponsible free press.

 

Clearly, all the dominant liberal media follows suit with extreme political bias, and all have ignored the fact that Bill and Hillary Clinton are responsible for the 2008 housing and financial meltdown caused, not by Wall Street, but by Clinton’s administration forcing banks and mortgage lenders to give unaffordable home loans to unqualified home buyers.

Presidential debate reaction

 

In the first Hillary Clinton – Donald Trump debate, each candidate displayed the roots of their character. Donald Trump was brash and to the point, and Hillary Clinton was condescending and arrogant.

 

The main different between them is that Trump is a very successful businessman, and Hillary Clinton is a slick politician with a history of political corruption, abuse of power and extreme greed.

 

In terms of their goals, Trump wants to save America and make it great again.  Clinton expects a coronation as the first woman president and to rule as queen of America down the road to ruin.

 

What was missing from the debate, was the fact that Clinton and Obama are responsible for the proliferation of ISIS, and Russian aggression, and that Bill Clinton is responsible for the 2008 housing and financial collapse.

O.J. Injustice dominates Emmys

 

The insidious injustice of O.J Simpson getting away with a vicious double murder honored by dominating the Emmy Awards comes as no surprise, as it headlines the reckless decline of the entertainment industry.

 

Indeed, Hollywood has become a superficial society of social aggression, political tyranny, selfish interests and extremes of shallow minds, absent social redeeming value.

 

Coupled with damaging violence, lazy remakes, true stories without core truth, stupid sit-coms and soaps, overdone cop, legal and medical series, and the obsession with horror, apocalypse and superhero movies, Hollywood has turned into a tasteless entertainment wasteland.

 

Add the irresponsibility of television commercials depicting loud, obnoxious behavior, idiotic situations and reckless speeding cars to the equation, and there isn’t much left but mind-numbing experiences….

Climate and criminal cartel

 

It’s bad enough that President Obama has exacted serious climate change hoax damage against our energy resources and our economy with his war against coal and oil energy, with irresponsible measures and far-reaching consequences.

 

However, Governor Brown and the Democrat California Legislature cartel refuse to be outdone the president, when they take climate change legislation to astronomic extremes that will seriously damage our California’s economy and our people.

 

Indeed, Brown is extending AB 32 Cap and Trade into the stratosphere with SB32 and AB197 wherein it will put California crashing into high gear. Surely, reckless climate change legislation is signing a death warrant that will raise the cost of living and send the state into economic oblivion.

 

Coupled with Brown releasing criminals to prey upon the people, it’s a Brown climate and criminal cartel. The people are the victims and they lose….

State should butt out of cigarette taxes

 

It was bad enough that Rob Reiner’s punishing 50 cents per pack tobacco tax proposition passed, and has been used for everything but tobacco-related health problems.

 

Now, smokers are expected to believe that Proposition 56’s tyrannical $2.00 per pack tax will be used for public health, when in fact it will be just another cash cow for the state. Inflicted upon those who can least afford the tax.

 

Worse, the legalization of marijuana proposition will surely be passed and become another cash cow for the state, even though it is a gateway to hard drugs. Indeed, it doesn’t matter that the black market for cigarettes and crime will escalate because of both propositions.

 

Alas, traveling down the liberal road to punishing use of a legal product, while recklessly approving use of an illegal drug for taxes is unconscionable and amounts to little more than voter-assisted social, political and economic suicide….

Wrecking crew against America

 

President Obama, Hillary and Bill Clinton, and Governor Brown are the primary wrecking crew against America, as follows:

 

President Obama has damaged the freedoms of Americans with the reckless, unconstitutional actions against our economy, our energy resources, our national security and our domestic security with executive orders and edicts, wars against coal and oil, finance, healthcare, the police – diminishing our border security, military defenses, allowing the proliferation of ISIS terrorism – releasing criminals to prey on the people, and imposing punishing regulations and taxes.

 

As Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton participated in the proliferation of ISIS terrorism, and used and abused her office for the Clinton Foundation and personal gain. As a candidate for president, she intends to assign the economy to her former president husband, Bill Clinton, who is directly responsible for the 2008 economic collapse, by forcing banks and mortgage lenders to give unaffordable home loans to unqualified buyers in mass.

 

California Governor Jerry Brown is a major player in the wrecking crew against California and America with economy-busting, punishing taxation, regulations, bullet train and water tunnel bond scams, $billions in the miseducation of students, high energy costs, releasing criminals to prey on Californians, lack of border security, support of sanctuary cities, and threats to our national and domestic security.

 

Indeed, the unconscionable Democrat Party and the liberal press covers for the un-American trio and all who support continued attacks against the people. Attention voters: wise up and don’t commit voter-assisted suicide by electing or re-electing more of the same poison to our freedom and liberty.

 

Alas, that they’re doing is tantamount to treason….

The economic collapse bomb

 

Before it’s too late, Donald Trump should drop the 2008 economic collapse bomb on Bill Clinton for causing it.

 

Indeed, Clinton caused the meltdown by using HUD’s Andrew Cuomo and AG Janet Reno to intimidate banks and mortgage lenders to provide unaffordable home loans to unqualified buyers, mainly African Americans, who defaulted on their loans in mass.

 

Wall Street did not cause the collapse, they simply attempted to survive Fannie Mae’s and Freddie Macs compliance with Clinton’s mandate by bundling good and bad loans.

 

Bill Clinton was the risk-taking presidential bad guy in the 2008 crash, not George W. Bush. He tried to stop it, but Barney Frank and Chris Dodd stood in his way. Worse, If elected, Hillary Clinton intends to put Bill in charge of the economy.

 

The insidious liberal media has ignored the truth and has been protecting him all this time. And the conservative media has dropped the ball. It’s past time for voters to know it, and hold Clinton and the media responsible for the damage to the economy and America.

 

But wait, it’s not over. Eight years of President Obama has America on crash course for and even worse economic train wreck….

Super Scoopers put fires out before they spread

The immediate use of Super Scooper water-dropping aircraft would have extinguished the Pilot Fire in the Silverwood Lake area before it spread into an out-of-control wildfire.

The irresponsible lack of firefighting air drop equipment from the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection is responsible for that.

Indeed, with the history of firefighting incompetence by the U.S. Forest Service and Cal Fire at the Sand Fire, Lake Arrowhead, the Cajon Pass into the Victor Valley, Santa Barbara, San Gabriel Canyon, Lake Isabella, and many other fires in Northern California, needless loss of forest lands, property and lives could have been simply prevented.

Clearly, all of these wildfires and more across the county and state could have been prevented by a fleet of Super Scoopers and DC-10 tankers subject to immediate dispatch with enormous water drops at the start of each fire, extinguishing them before they spread.

Surely, waiting until a fire gets out of control, then sending DC-10s to drop red Fosh-Chek slurry to keep out of control fires from spreading further is nothing more than an exercise in futility.

Particularly, after thousands of firefighters, equipment and millions of taxpayer dollars are wasted.

Alas, it’s beyond time to get it right with a vastly distributed fleet of purchased Super Scoopers and DC-10s loaded with water and waiting for the call to keep California and America from burning.

Super Scoopers are a magic bullet

 

Though my California Burning letters focused on the DC-10 first response firefighting capabilities, I realize that they cannot be used in all first responses. And I meant no disrespect to firefighters.

 

Indeed, my 41 year career in law enforcement and the criminal justice system included 3 years as the lead fire dispatcher with the RFPA Desert Com, in which I had firsthand experience with wildfires in the High Desert and  local mountain areas.

 

I also had experience as a deputy sheriff in an L.A County Sheriff’s fire road camp providing security for inmate fire crews on the front lines of several fires. I sincerely apologize to anyone who was offended.

 

My concerns are directed at U.S. Forest Service mismanagement of wildfires, and to a point with Cal Fire. The current crisis is the Pilot Fire, which could have been extinguished by Super Scoopers with Silverwood Lake water sources, while it was growing from 20 acres, before it went out of control to over 7000 acres.

 

Worse, the smoke from massive wildfires adversely affects thousands, hundreds of thousands, even millions of people. Particularly, those with respiratory problems – my wife and I among them – who are generally exposed or confined to our homes with air conditioning to survive under those conditions.

 

The point is, there is no reason why the Forest Service and Cal Fire could not have previously purchased or built Super Scoopers like Canada did, to be widely distributed for immediate response -- in the Pilot Fire case -- dispatched from the Victorville Logistics Base, and or Norton.

 

Surely, Super Scoopers would be the magic bullet. Certainly, the Forest Service failed to call in a heavy response to the Station Fire, and Governor Brown could have provided funding for Super Scoopers instead of his wasteful bullet train and other state boondoggles….

 

Again, I appreciate all firefighters. I have family in the fire service, and family who resides in the threatened area of Arrowhead Lake Road, so my concerns are also personal.

Liberal media cartel vs. Donald Trump

 

The worst enemies to America’s constitutionals freedoms are President Obama, Hillary Clinton, congressional Democrats and the liberal media cartel that supports them. Indeed, under the Obama administration, our social, political, economic, domestic and national security are at all-time lows.

 

Clearly, the liberal media has abdicated their freedom of the press responsibilities for fair and objective reporting. Instead they have chosen a path similar to Russia’s state media, Pravda under the direction of overbearing government that violates the people’s freedoms, and attacks any resistance.

 

Surely, the only way America’s future can be protected against intrusive, domineering government, and a world wrought with terrorism will be to reject a continued Obama regime with Hillary Clinton, elect Republican Donald Trump president and increase Republican majorities in the House and Senate.

 

And the only way that will happen is if voters wise-up to the media cartel’s relentless attacks against Donald Trump and reject Hillary Clinton’s history of corruption. Otherwise, the 2016 presidential election will result in voter-assisted suicide.

Obama insults Dallas police

 

President Obama’s carefully articulated sermon at the memorial for the 5 assassinated Dallas police officers was nothing more than a veiled attempt to justify his underlying contempt for law enforcement -- our first line of defense -- the rule of law and America. 

 

Considering President Obama’s divisive history with race relations, and his hateful war against the police, at this point, it’s gone too far. Indeed, he must pull back the militant Black Lives Matter movement for the good of the nation before it’s too late.

Trump made right choice with Pence

 

Donald Trump made a good choice of Mike Pence as his VP running mate. When he wins the election, he should choose Newt Gingrich as his chief of staff, Chris Christie as Attorney General, Rudy Giuliani as director of Homeland Security, Lt, Gen. Michael Flynn as Secretary of Defense, and Ben Carson as Surgeon General director of HHS for a good start.

 

However, it should be noted that Hillary Clinton calling Mike Pence the most extremist VP choice in a generation, and the Democrat national media nitpicking Trump’s wife for plagiarizing Obama’s wife’s comments at their nominating conventions, is as politically stupid and low as you can get.

 

Indeed, there is no comparison between true American conservative Pence and Hillary’s potential VP un-American choice of Communist Elizabeth Warren. And surely, valuing your parents moral advice is meaningful. The difference is, Trump’s wife meant it. Obama’s wife did not.

Kamala Harris should resign    

 

California Attorney General Kamala Harris is a contemptable political opportunist. Her recent announcement to investigate the contemptable incompetence of San Bernardino County’s Children and Family Services, responsible for the child abuse, torturing and killing of children, is too little and very late in coming.

 

Indeed, the only reason Harris is taking action now, is to further her campaign to replace Barbara Boxer as U.S. Senator for California. Question is, where was the Attorney General over a year ago when a Channel 11 Fox News completed an investigation into the insidious situation over a year ago?

 

Surely, Harris’ misfeasance that contributed to the pain, suffering and death of innocent children is more than sufficient evidence that she is not fit to be Attorney General -- certainly not a U.S. Senator -- and that she should resign from office immediately.

Hillary Clinton, absolute power

 

Hillary Clinton’s insidious career is replete with an obsessive drive for absolute power, from her conflicts of interest power grabs as first lady, to the Clinton Foundation, to running for president against Barrack Obama, to Obama’s Secretary of State, and her ultimate grab for absolute power as the first woman president of the United States.

 

Problem is, as Barrack Obama was the worst choice for the first black president of America – deeply damaging our country -- Hillary Clinton would be the worst choice for the first woman president – potentially damaging our country beyond repair and recovery.

 

Indeed, as it has always been known tyrants are developed on the premise that absolute power corrupts absolutely, Obama has proved the premise and now Clinton promises to join those absolutely destructive ranks.

 

Worse, President Obama has openly diminished our economy, domestic security and national security. Likewise, Hillary Clinton has unjustly enriched herself using her position of secretary of state, and she has criminally violated our national security with her personal emails.

 

Surely, the American people cannot be seduced into electing such a corrupt parasite. Particularly, when she intends to put her husband, Bill Clinton in charge of the economy. You know, the president Clinton who caused the economy to crash in 2008!

To save U.S., back Trump

 

Mitt Romney’s scathing remarks against Donald Trump’s competency to be president are hypocritical to say the least – particularly given that in 2012 Romney betrayed the Republican Party in his feckless presidential debate against President Obama.

 

Indeed, even though Obama lied about calling Benghazi a terror attack, his assertion that he did call it an act of terror was supported by highly partisan CNN debate moderator Candy Crowley -- without serious objection from Mr. Romney. This was a cowardly act proving he was no match for Mr. Obama. Clearly, Mr. Romney was not up to defeating Mr. Obama or stopping Mr. Obama’s corrosive path against our national security and economy.

 

Surely, Donald Trump is a political phenomenon in this 2016 election against Hillary Clinton, but he has what it takes to win and recover our economy and domestic security. However, and America’s chances will be seriously reduced if disorganized Republican leaders don’t get their act together, defeat Clinton and increase Republican control of Congress.

Mitt Romney’s Republican Party betrayal

Surely, Donald Trump is a political phenomenon in this 2016 election against Hillary Clinton, but he has what it takes to win and recover our economy, national security and domestic security. However, his chances and America’s chances will be seriously reduced if seriously disorganized Republican leaders don’t get their act together, defeat Clinton and increase Republican control of Congress.

Rising threats, shrinking military

 

Bret Bair’s Fox News Special Report regarding America’s Rising Threat, Shrinking Military is a comprehensive dire warning about President Obama’s perilous national security legacy of causing the rise of violence and terrorism in the world, dangerously shrinking our military, and the rising of threats to America from, Russia, China and North Korea.

 

Indeed, because of President Obama’s long record of divisions -- attacking our society, our economy and our freedoms --  and his overall contempt for America, supported by the liberal media and Democrat Party, he has recklessly placed our country and our people in extreme debt and danger.

 

Therefore, at the end of his destructive terms in office, he must be replaced by a strong, qualified Republican patriot in the November presidential election. At this time, the nominee to restore America is Donald Trump.

As President Obama’s corrosive legacy continues to bulldoze the best interests of the American people, we are painfully reminded of just how insidious overwhelming government can be. It is not so different from the tyrannical government that inspired the American Revolution.

 

Indeed, Mr. Obama’s arrogant monarchial reign and reckless, narcissistic pursuit of a legacy has been bent on increasing government attacks on our social, political and economic freedoms with unconstitutional executive orders, taxes and regulations. Worse, Mr. Obama has been undermining our economic security with his “climate change” hoax and its wars on oil, coal and natural gas in favor of costly and unreliable solar and wind. This constitutes an overall attack on our economy and cost of living.

 

Even worse, President Obama has divided our nation, conducted a wars on the police and our domestic security, and critically compromised our national defense, military strength and readiness. His expanding romance with Communist nations – Russia, China, Cuba and Viet Nam -- is surpassed only by his record of allowing the unbridled growth  of the Taliban, al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

 

Our only hope after President Obama’s 8-year war on America, is to reject the continued socialism of Clinton/Sanders and elect conservatives to government. Otherwise we will be committing voter-assisted social, political and economic suicide.

 

Unfortunately, most of my state of California has long been in the forefront of socialism, with overbearing government attacking the people and business with punishing taxes and regulations, and allowing crime to flourish. Fortunately, there is an island of hope in most of San Bernardino and our Victor Valley high desert community. Here have solid conservatives both in office and running for office, which is comforting in a world fraught with fear and evil.

 

Hopefully, there are enough culture warriors remaining our country to overcome our enemies. This November, vote Trump and vote Republican.

Donald Trump’s economic plans will help U.S.

 

This will surely be a vicious presidential election. Still, the liberal press is intentionally being irresponsible to voters by not truthfully covering Hillary Clinton’s statements about her husband taking over a large part of the presidential portfolio, including being the economy czar. Particularly, with Bill Clinton’s destructive record of causing the 2008 economic meltdown.

 

It’s simply a matter of choosing either socialism or democracy, leaving successful businessman, Donald Trump as the only choice to save America’s economy, domestic and national security, and our freedom. Indeed, freedom from Clinton’s and Obama’s corrosive legacies.

Clinton’s economic record

 

In a recent campaign speech Hillary Clinton indicated that if elected president, her husband, Bill would assume large part of the presidential portfolio. She said that she would put him in charge of stimulating the economy because, “you know he knows how to do that.” Problem is, he knows how to do just the opposite.

 

Indeed, when Bill Clinton ran for president in 1992, he campaigned against George HW Bush’s economic recession, with the mantra, “It’s the economy, stupid.” When in reality, the economy was coming out of a natural recovery from a recession. So, it was a stupid political lie to get votes, of course.

 

Personal attacks aside, what really matters about the Clintons is what former president Bill Clinton did in his second term to cause the collapse of housing and finance by forcing banks and mortgage lenders to give home loans to unqualified buyers -- based upon his devious drive to do overcome “redlining” against black home buyers -- which expanded to national, unchecked mass of unqualified buyers and the real cause of the economic meltdown.

 

Clearly, Bill Clinton and his hit squad of AG, Janet Reno, HUD Director, Andrew Cuomo, and Fannie Mae chairman, Franklin Raines are totally responsible for the 2008 housing and finance bust, not President George W. Bush or Wall Street. Indeed, an economic bust which President Obama has exacerbated  throughout his terms in office.

 

Alas, no one is talking about the real cause of the housing and financial crisis, especially the irresponsible, biased press. Clearly, if Hillary Clinton is elected, it would not only be economic suicide, it would be a Benghazi-style national security disaster.

President Trump

 

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump is an accomplished, tough patriot and can win the election if he does it right. Indeed, by picking the right running mate and Cabinet, Donald Trump could easily become our next President:

 

Vice President, John Kasich

 

Secretary of State, Mike Huckabee

 

Secretary of Defense, should be the most competent general in our military

 

Attorney General, Chris Christie

 

Secretary of Homeland Security, Rudy Giuliani

 

Secretary of Health and Human Services, Dr. Ben Carson

 

Secretary of Education, Scott Walker

 

Secretary of the Treasury, Carly Fiorina

 

Etc.

 

Above all, Trump and his prospective administration must prevent Hillary Clinton from finishing President Obama’s take down of America. And in doing so, Trump must generate big coat tails to increase Republican majorities in the House and Senate.

 

Surely, it’s past time for a recovery from selfish-interest liberal disintegration, and an Obama-led domestic and national security disaster. Indeed, we must have a Trump-led conservative restoration of America,  before it’s too late….

Canceling papers, keeping Daily Press

 

For years, I have subscribed to print newspapers with a focus on major news stories and what is going on in my community, region, state, country and the world. And my main focus has been the opinion pages. I also subscribe to the Washington Post and New York Times online, along with the Orange County Register and Riverside Press Enterprise.

 

I realize that newspapers have been struggling because of online news via the Internet. Television news notwithstanding, I have kept informed with great interest. Unfortunately, the news has become so biased, that the American people have been dangerously misinformed.

 

Indeed, if it were not for Fox News and the few honest, conservative traditional newspapers, Americans would be fully indoctrinated against themselves and seriously against their interests of liberty, freedom and self-determination.

 

Getting to the point of this letter, I now feel betrayed by my newspapers, particularly, the L.A. Times, USA TODAY, the San Bernardino Sun, the Washington Post and New York Times online, and sadly, the Wall Street Journal.

 

Therefore, I cancelled my L.A. Times subscription because their editorial and letters pages are too liberal, with little or no room for conservative opinion. I cancelled USA TODAY because of liberal slant and their betrayal of traditional letter-writers – focusing of blurbs from Facebook and Twitter.

 

I cancelled my San Bernardino Sun subscription because of liberal letter slant -- half their letters in response to editorial questions of the week -- and too many letters from L.A. County instead of from loyal readers from our San Bernardino County.

 

And I cancelled my Wall Street Journal subscription because they ignore letters from readers related to government and politics discussed in editorials and commentary, and the honest, independent opinions of letter-writers. I also cancelled my Washington Post and New York Times online.

 

Fortunately, our local VV Daily Press remains firmly truthful and balanced, focusing on freedom. Of course, I kept that subscription and I also subscribe to NewMax Magazine. My greatest fear for my family is the failure of our government and the direction President Obama has taken against America.

 

For years, I have felt that my opinions have been of value to readers, and I have had many letters published, which I have consolidated into 5 published volumes of Letters to the Editor: From the Trenches of Democracy, which includes commentary and tips on writing letters. Volume 6 will be published after the 2016 Presidential Election.

How can you say the Journal ignores letters on government and political issues?  That is a slander and is completely wrong. I look at 600 or so letters a day and we run as many as we can fit in the space. I've printed four from you in the past five years.

I resent the implications and your condescending attitude, which you displayed the last time I complained to you. Four letters in the last five years is very limited. The only letters on government political issues I’ve seen for a very long time were the group on the 2016 presidential elections a while back.  Too bad, the WSJ is a good newspaper.

Scourge of mail theft  

My small street of six residences has a group mailbox that was recently pried open and our mail stolen. The theft and vandalism was bad enough but the total lack of interest or action on the part of the Post Office was even worse. I think this problem is much more widespread than we know. The people I spoke with while picking up my mail were from many neighborhoods and some had boxes vandalized multiple times. If the Post Office were a private company, it would be out of business in short order.

Get a Letter Locker for secure mail

 

Mr. Ray, I have a suggestion to resolve you and your neighbors mailbox vandalism and mail theft problems. Jayco Industries in Apple Valley manufactures, sells and installs Letter Locker mailboxes, the highest quality and secure mailboxes on the market. Letter Lockers have patented Claw Locks and the boxes cannot be pried open. The boxes are also large enough to store a quantity of mail that remains secure while you are away or on vacation.

 

Letter Lockers can be ordered via the Jayco Industries and Letter Locker web sites, or you can pick up a box at the manufacturing plant at 21483 Waalew Rd. in Apple Valley, 92307. The Post Office does require group mailboxes, so you might contact your neighbors to arrange for a cluster of six boxes. It’s certainly worthwhile looking into. I hope this helps your problem. Our son, Jay Jeffs is the founder and owner of Jayco Industries.

2016 American crisis

 

President Obama has gone too far in accomplishing his promised fundamental transformation of America, managing to intentionally and seriously diminish our domestic and national security, double our national debt, damage our economy, and create deep divisions among our people with the obsessive promotion of his insidious legacy. Indeed, with less than a year to the end of his two terms, Mr. Obama is slamming the pedal to the metal throughout government, America and the world.

 

And what do we have to look forward to in the 2016 presidential elections? Either Republican Donald Trump, or Democrat Hillary Clinton. Surely, neither of them are promising leaders to the recovery of America. Rather, they are both self-obsessed to the right and left, either too extreme or extremely corrupt leaving voters in a quandary as to what will become of us in a world wrought with terrorism, hate, discontent, social deterioration, economic tribulation, governmental chaos and the threats of world war.

 

Alas, it’s past time for voters to re-evaluate themselves, their lives, their families, their future and the re-established need for our government by the people, for the people, freedom, security, social sanity, and the pursuit of real, not imagined, happiness. To survive, vote your conscience, and hold their feet to the fire of accountability….

Real wrongdoers not being punished

 

Former president Bill Clinton taking on Black Lives Matter about black on black crime, etc. is reminiscent of his romancing the middle during his presidency. For purely political reasons, and to get re-elected, he went along with the Contract with America Republican/Gingrich Congress in sentencing reform, welfare reform, etc. which were very successful.

 

However, the $5 billion housing mortgage settlement against Goldman Sachs as being part of the 2008 financial meltdown fails to recognize the real cause, What has been seriously neglected, is that Clinton forced the housing finance industry to give home loans to unqualified buyers (primarily blacks) who could not afford them. Therefore, Clinton caused the 2008 housing and financial collapse, not Wall Street.

 

Indeed, the constant call, backed by the liberal media, for executive heads to roll over the financial crisis is wrongheaded. Instead, there should be efforts to punish Bill Clinton, his then hit-team against banks and mortgage lenders, Attorney General Janet Reno, HUD Direct Andrew Cuomo, and Fannie Mae manipulator Franklin Raines should be punished. And, lest it’s forgotten, Rep. Barney Frank and Sen. Chris Dodd for perpetuating the fraud.

 

President Bush attempted to stop the mortgage madness, but his efforts were derailed by Frank, Dodd and Democrats in Congress. Bush attempted to soften the financial blow with TARP and other measures.  And, of course, newly-elected President Obama falsely blamed Bush and Wall Street for the costly Clinton/Democrat fiasco.

 

Alas, the tendency of liberal government and media to punish essentially innocent companies as wrongdoers when they are the real culprits is unconscionable, bad for the economy, bad for business, and worse, bad for the country and our people. President Obama simply perpetuated the recession, exacerbated by two terms of economic lies, abuse and doubling and nation debt.

 

The Clinton’s back in the White House would be wrong. Time for voters to wise-up and get it right. It’s a matter of our survival….

Taxpayers lose with hefty raise for CSU faculty

 

Giving in to the demands of the nation’s largest public university faculty union in California, giving its members a 10.5 percent raise in salaries to avert a strike is an affront against California taxpayers. Particularly when the Cal State system is nothing more than a finishing school for liberal indoctrination taught in schools  throughout the nation.

 

Surely, aggressive teacher unions are prime examples of why there should be no public employee unions or strikes against taxpayers and the public interest anywhere in the United States, for any reason. It’s simply unconscionable and unconstitutional to allow a deleterious ideology to “wag the dog” of government and the American people.

Obama and Pravda

 

President Obama’s speech at the Journalism awards ceremony, telling them that Journalists should hold (Republican) presidential candidates accountable for their actions and policy statements confirms his undue influence over the already liberal news media.

 

Indeed, President Obama speaks as the acting chairman of the liberal ( Putin-controlled Pravda light-like) news media in furthering his corrosive fundamental transformation of the United States America from a Democratic Republic to an authoritarian-style state. No accountability allowed.

 

Unfortunately, Mr. Obama began his life as one of the last members of the heavy-laden liberal element of the Boomer generation, who infected their children and the next generation in their hostile counter-cultural and political takeover of the safe conservative-American republic as it was founded.

 

Alas, the Clintons were the first of the Boomer generation, and Obama has been the last and end-all of an insidious revolution, which could end it all for our freedom. Particularly if Hillary Clinton becomes president as the power and greed commander-in-chief.

 

Clearly, Obama, Clinton and the liberal media have betrayed the Constitution and the First Amendment. Donald Trump is a troubling alternative, but far better than a Clinton-continued calamity….

Assessing President Obama and Governor Brown: a bleak 2016?

 

In assessing the Obama administration’s social, political, economic and national security disasters of leading up to and including 2015, and looking forward to the president’s final round vs. America, the American people are clearly confused by hope and uncertainty as the chaos of the 2016 Presidential election plays out.

 

Gov. Brown’s insane Propositions and legislators’ punishing taxation on businesses, strapping taxpayers with bonds for a totally unnecessary high speed rail, and now the $15 minimum wage have added extreme levels of taxes and burdens upon California business, the people and our economy.

 

These are calamities for America and California, if voters don’t wise up to protect ourselves and our future.  Don’t cast stupid votes!

April Fools?

 

Earlier last month, my wife and I received a vague letter notification from Verizon that Frontier Communications will be taking over our FIOS, Internet and phone services? Early last week we received an undated form letter notification from Frontier Communications President and CEO, Dan McCarthy with “exciting news” indicating that on April 1st, our services would be moved to the Frontier Network in a smooth transition.

 

Not true for FIOS! The transition began several days before that, and is still going on. Our On Demand services and purchased movies are gone and not available for viewing. Needless to say, we are outraged by the inefficiency. Indeed, we have spent hundreds of dollars on movies, many of which are new releases that should be available.

 

The Frontier letter advised us to go to “MeetFrontier.com” for a Frontier ID and access. The site is a tangled mess. I attempted to contact Verizon and Frontier by phone with no results. I was “blown-off” by voice recordings from each, to contact the other. Today is April 2nd, and the transition is not complete, Phone, Internet and TV have not been disturbed, but movies are still not available.

 

Surely, this “April Fools” day was certainly not a joke. It’s a betrayal by Verizon FIOS, and gross incompetency by Frontier. I searched the Internet for information on Frontier Communications, but only learned that the company have serious financial problems last year. Worse, I found that most, if not all newspapers and news media have had nothing to report.

 

Indeed, we subscribe to USA TODAY, the Wall Street Journal, the Los Angeles Times, the San Bernardino Sun and the Daily Press, and found nothing, including nothing from all of our major online newspaper subscriptions. Alas, one would think that this enormous transition from Verizon FIOS to Frontier Communications that included millions of subscribers from California, Florida and Texas is a big deal. Apparently not.

 

Hopefully, I speak for most of my fellow disappointed Verizon FIOS customers. Meanwhile, we’re waiting, now impatiently, for the business of consumer justice – not here yet!

Propaganda vs. reality

Wow! It was a wingnut love fest today, March 24, for the Cranky Old White Men of Apple Valley. All three spewing their vitriol, intolerance, and ignorance on the same editorial page. I really did not read their letters all the way through, since their diatribes are as predictable and trite as all the others they have written. They are a template of the Repugnican (as in Repugnant) propaganda spewed daily by Fox News: President Obama is the worst person in the world who is destroying the USA single-handedly; ObamaCare is the worst government program in the world; all the world’s ills can be blamed on the liberals; Repugnicans good, Democrats evil.

The Crankies, you see, are members of the GOP — God’s Only People. Only they have the God-given right to rule America. Only their candidates should win. Only their opinions matter, since they possess superior knowledge over all of us who don’t agree with them. In other words, they possess no democratic instincts whatsoever. They are inerrant. It’s all about them. We who think differently than they do don’t matter.

I am guessing, though, that these three have it made. They never had is so good, but that doesn’t stop the gritching and groaning. They love their socialist programs, Social Security and Medicare, even though they paid in a lot less than they will receive. They live in the Fox News twilight zone of balanced government budgets, the end of welfare and food stamps, big concealed weapons and big, high walls on the border.

Boys, why don’t you go to the library and educate yourselves. The world doesn’t revolve around you. All the modern, progressive things we take for granted — Social Security, 40-hour work week, Medicare, family leave, ban on child labor, unemployment insurance, auto safety, etc. — sprang from liberal, progressive thinking. Your side of the political equation comes up with nothing except tax cuts for the rich, which have just worked wonders, haven’t they? Please take off your Fox News-colored glasses and experience reality.

Condescending diatribe

 

Hesitant to lower myself to a writer’s level, I seldom, if ever, engage in personal debates with the left. However his personal attacks are beyond the pale.

 

His spiteful condescending diatribe against conservative letter-writers is painful evidence of his indoctrination as one of useful idiots of the far left, which is a clear and present danger to our society and America.

 

Surely, his scurrilous comments about “cranky old white men of Apple Valley” and the “GOP God’s Only People” are blatantly racist and bigoted -- unfortunately, expected from the hateful Left.

 

It’s a shame that he doesn’t appreciate being published in a conservative, libertarian newspaper.

Supreme Court Injustice

 

By Daniel Jeffs

 

Democrats and the liberal news media never let up with their tyrannical intimidation of conservatives to further their insidious agenda against America and the traditional values of the Founders.

 

Indeed, the Supreme Court has become the focal point of what’s wrong with our society, under siege by socialists who are determined to undermine our Constitution and our founding principles.

 

Clearly, the leaders of the war against America are well-documented in our history, including what was supposed to be the chief safeguard of our Constitution. The Supreme Court of the United States.

 

Surely, the brutal liberal lynching by Senate Judiciary Sen. Joe Biden against Supreme Court nominees Robert Bork and Clarence Thomas is clear and convincing evidence of authoritarian Democrats against the Constitution.

 

Certainly, Republican mistakes have been made in the appointments of Supreme Court Justices, John Paul Stevens, Sandra Day O’Conner, Anthony Kennedy, and Chief Justice John Roberts – not to mention the drastic mistake of Chief Justice Earl Warren by President Eisenhower….

 

Of course, Democrat presidents Clinton and Obama have ensured the Court’s liberal agenda and indifference to Constitutional law with the appointments of justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

 

Alas, the latest grave injustice is being attempted by President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland, an Anthony Kennedy-like teetering centrist/socialist to replace the deeply troubling constitutional originalist vacancy left by deceased patriot Justice Antonin Scalia. Yet will still have patriot Justice Samuel Alito.

 

Sadly, that’s the authoritarian liberal way of President Obama’s terms of contempt for America, by simply ignoring and circumventing the Constitution.  Supreme Court injustice, indeed, like the presidency and government, the Supreme Court problem is systemic. Absolute power in government and on the Court corrupts, absolutely.

 

We, the American people must correct it, for our survival….

Reaching out to Cuba

 

Regarding  “New Cuba policy a historic smart gamble,” March 22.

 

President Obama’s normalization of relations with Castro’s brutal Communist regime is nothing more than continuing his blind pursuit of a self-aggrandizing legacy, un-American, and a blatant betrayal of the United States.

 

Indeed, America’s gravest mistake was failing to prevent Fidel Castro’s Communist aggression to take over Cuba. Clearly, the mistake was exacerbated by failing to overthrow Castro after the Russian-backed Cuban missile crisis.

 

Coupled with the military failure to take out Castro in the Cuban patriot Bay of Pigs effort, allowing Castro to rule on and spread Communism in South America and beyond, was reprehensible.

 

Surely, President Obama’s actions are too close and dangerous to our national security. The solution, of course, is to squeeze the Castro regime out of existence and free the Cuban people to have a democratic republic. Regime change is the answer….

Donald Trump destroying the Republican Party

 

Self-consumed commercial hustler Donald Trump has played upon conservative anger against the corrosive liberal Democrat Party establishment by running for president in the 2016 election, which handed the Democrats the opportunity to create the perfect storm against him and the Republican Party.

 

And the liberal Democrat cartel of government, news media and education are doing it. This is not politics as usual. It is in fact a looming calamity (an event that causes great harm and suffering) for America.

 

Unacceptable! Particularly in this era of domestic and national security peril. Vote for survival.

Greatest threat: Leftist ideology

 

Since the eras of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Woodrow Wilson and Teddy Roosevelt, the insidious liberal Democrat ideology has tightened its iron grip on America by infecting our government, our schools, our news media and the entertainment industry. All of this has had an extensive influence over our society.

 

Indeed, if it were not for people who hold fast to conservative Republican and libertarian constitutional principles, freedoms, moral values and religion, our nation and our future would be lost forever to liberal indoctrination.

 

The 2016 presidential election run-up has been a brutal display of the battle between good and evil, exacerbated by two terms of the insidious Obama administration, starring Republican Donald Trump, and Democrats Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders of  Vermont.

 

Unfortunately, pathological narcissist billionaire Donald Trump is a political anomaly, a gift to Democrats intent on destroying the Republicans. He is playing into their insidious ideology.

 

Fortunately, Republican candidates such as Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas have the wherewithal to beat Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Sanders. That is, if the Republican Party gets its act together and works to dismantle the greatest threat to our country: Liberal Democrat ideology….

Of course, Democrat presidents Clinton and Obama have ensured the Court’s liberal agenda and indifference to Constitutional law with the appointments of justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan.

 

Alas, the latest grave injustice is being attempted by President Obama’s nomination of Merrick Garland, an Anthony Kennedy-like teetering centrist/socialist to replace the deeply troubling constitutional originalist vacancy left by deceased patriot Justice Antonin Scalia. Yet will still have patriot Justice Samuel Alito.

 

Sadly, that’s the authoritarian liberal way of President Obama’s terms of contempt for America, by simply ignoring and circumventing the Constitution.  Supreme Court injustice, indeed, like the presidency and government, the Supreme Court problem is systemic. Absolute power in government and on the Court corrupts, absolutely.

 

We, the American people must correct it, for our survival….

Election insanity 2016

 

When Donald Trump announced his Republican bid for president, he seized the stage as ringmaster in the greatest show of political insanity on earth, turning the Republican race into upside down side-shows.

 

On the Democrat side, corrupt pathological narcissist candidate Hillary Clinton seized upon her coronation role as the first woman president, complicated by the insanity of grumpy old man socialist Bernie Sanders.

 

Of course, all the insanity is being exacerbated by biased news media sensationalism. Hopefully, voters will wise-up enough to elect a president who will lead us out of the insane darkness into the light of America’s survival.

 

Indeed, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the only grounded, qualified candidate with the character, integrity and deeply proven federal and state government experience to pull our country together against government self-destruction, economic ruin and terrorism.

The next president

 

Re: “GOP has more to lose than gain” … Absolutely. Who will be elected president in 2016?

 

Considering the probable nominees, it doesn’t look good for America. Clinton or Trump? No!

 

Unfortunately, too may clueless and indoctrinated voters influenced by biased media will go along with lemming voter-assisted suicide, one way or the other. Why? It already happened with two-term President Obama: Social, political, economic, domestic and national security disaster.

 

Worse, the state of the Republican Party, Democrat Party and outsiders in the presidential election have created a Trump-driven, ringmaster-cheapened political circus with ugly side-shows, making it painfully clear that America is steeped in election trouble.

 

The news media, of course, are exacerbating the dilemma. Surely, It’s time for voters to get our act together and promote real democracy wherein we decide, not the personal power hungry narcissistic fools running our country into the ground….

 

Sen. Rubio or Sen. Cruz are OK alternatives, particularly against a Corrupt Hillary Clinton or a grumpy old socialist, Bernie Sanders.

 

However, Ohio Gov. John Kasich is the only grounded, qualified candidate with the character, integrity and deeply proven federal and state government experience to pull our country together against government self-destruction, economic ruin and terrorism.

 

Question is, can exasperated Republicans make the smart move to expel Trump from the nominations and make the right move? Our future will depend upon it.

President Obama does not live in our American universe, but in his own world of legacy-seeking deceit, distraction, abuse of power and chaos regardless of the social, political, economic, domestic and national security damage inflicted upon our nation. On the other hand, that appears to be exactly what he wants.

Apple vs. America

 

Apple’s refusal to co-operate with the FBI regarding the encrypted phone records of the San Bernardino, CA terrorists is simply un-patriotic and un-American.

 

Particularly, in the insidious climate of national security failures created by President Obama’s dereliction of duty over the past seven years of fundamentally and dangerously transforming America.

 

Surely, Apple and all American tech companies should be working hard with our domestic and national security officials to prevent terrorist attacks, and to attack terrorists working to hack and attack us, our government, businesses, power grids and our freedom.

 

Indeed, President Obama is directly responsible for the rise and proliferation of al-Qaeda, ISIS and terrorism in the Middle-East, America and throughout the world – and the criminal invasion across our borders -- which are tantamount to treason.

 

Clearly, if it were not for this climate of treason, there would have been no post-2008 traitors such as the terrorist attacks in America at Fort Hood, Texas, San Bernardino – and no traitors such as Manning and Snowden – or the aggression of Russia, North Korea and China – or peace with Communist Cuba. 

 

Alas, the liberal media should be ashamed for supporting the treasonous, as should Hollywood for supporting the government-caused fall of the economy, and Oliver Stone for his un-American activities and for glorifying Traitor Edward Snowden.

Re: “Obama’s Guantanamo plan hits wall of opposition” [Front page, Feb. 24]:

 

President Obama doesn’t miss a beat in orchestrating his insidious legacy of fundamentally transforming America.

 

Indeed, he is determined to release more terrorists from Guantanamo back into rejoining the terrorist jihad against America and the West, and transferring the remaining terrorists to federal prisons – increasing the danger to our people.

 

Of course, if the Congress does not approve Mr. Obama’s proposed actions to close Guantanamo, he will surely circumvent the Congress and the Constitution again with his all-too-frequent monarchial executive actions.

President 2016

 

The New Hampshire primary election launched the proving grounds of a Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders fight over who is going to best continue and expand on President “Barwreck” Obama’s corrosive policies -- and a battle for the Republican spirit of American recovery.

 

Indeed, through the campaign chaos, indoctrinated Democrats must choose between a Hillary Clinton crook and a Bernie Sanders socialist. And reminiscent Republicans must choose between a sword, shield and chariot charging Donald Trump -- and a winner in wisdom.  

 

Surely, the best outcome would be an honest Republican president and Congress who stimulate true American culture, values and character among the people, similar to how a “We’re looking out for you” Bill O’Reilly does.

LETTERS: President Obama just doing his job

Re: “Scalia was a defender of our ideals” [Letters, Feb. 16]: Daniel B. Jeffs says that the president “wrongfully intends to nominate a justice” to the Supreme Court. And Mr. Jeffs notes that Justice Scalia was “a great loss to the enforcement and defense of the original intent of the U.S. Constitution.”

Scalia was an “originalist.” So how would he assess Mr. Jeffs‘ remarks?

The Constitution, in Article 2, Section 2, specifies that the president “shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint” judges to the Supreme Court.

There is no creative interpretation of this power granted by the Constitution. “Nominate” and “appoint” are two separate verbs, set in clauses separated by commas, to denote two separate acts.

Nothing wrongful about it: The president nominates and, with the advice and consent of the Senate, can then appoint.

Nobody anticipated that a Supreme Court justice would pass away in the heat of election season, but it has happened some six times. And in all those cases, the Senate did its job of providing an up or down vote on nominees.

What Mr. Jeffs is really telling us is that he prefers the president not do his job. Then, the opposition can add it to their mantra of campaign rhetoric.

But all the president needs do is to submit successive names to the Senate, as if passing business cards. And if he does – as he most certainly will – the ball is in play. It is entirely uncertain as to how the complete refusal of the Senate to do its own part will affect the votes up for grabs in November.

So this is nothing but a board game of political checkers. The opposition is begging the president in so many words not to make his move when it’s his turn.

It just seems obtuse for the begging to appear in a diatribe such as those we’ve read or heard since 2009. A graceful genuflection it is not.

Revolting development scenarios

 

By Daniel B. Jeffs

 

The rise of uncivilized Islamic assaults on civilization in the world, have been exacerbated by the rise of uncivilized technology resulting in superficial societies of selfish interests, social aggression, political tyranny, economic stress and extremes – particularly in America.

 

Indeed, America -- the model and historical leader of peace and freedom in the world -- has been severely undermined by the post-WWII cultural revolution resulting in tearing down our established institutions, corrupting our society and diminishing our freedoms. 

 

Clearly, the revolting developments have been caused by social, political and economic extremists from the 1960’s and 70’s, who spawned countercultural hate and decay in society and government, leaving America vulnerable to attack by enemies from within and the outside.

 

Which leads us the revolting political developments of now and how we got here. Alas, most Democrats have made a costly mess of things, and most Republicans have been less than efficient in cleaning it up. The best of both have been Kennedy and Reagan. The worst: Carter, Clinton and Obama.

 

Surely, the best outcome for the 2016 presidential election would be either Rubio, Kasich, Christie or Fiorina. The worst would be Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders, with Barack Obama on the Supreme Court. The elephant in the room isn’t really an elephant. He’s certainly not a Trump card. He’s a dangerous anomaly.

 

Presidential race to oblivion?

 

It’s still the economy, stupid is not Hillary Clinton’s truth any more than it was in 1992, when Bill Clinton schemed his way into the presidency, then undermined the economy by causing the unaffordable housing and financial collapse of 2008.

 

Indeed, the counter cultural revolution and decades of extremist and socialist indoctrination by the miseducation and media cartel came to fruition with the 2008 election of Barack Obama, humiliating John McCain and the bumbling Republican Party, and assigning Hillary Clinton to dismantle foreign policy and escalate terrorism.

 

Now, the 2016 presidential race to America’s oblivion is on again, with corruption-in-her-heart and fire-in-her-eyes Hillary Clinton leading, challenged by the cranky old socialist Bernie Sanders and his wild-young indoctrinated crowd of supporters.

 

Of course, they’re being chased by a narrowing herd of patriotic Republicans, stampeded by wheeler-dealer Donald Trump, and struggling to gain traction with Cruz, Rubio, Carson, Christie and Kasich – with a Bush in the background.

 

Alas, the liberal media curse is the venomous snake in the grass that will frighten the voter multitude all the way through to the poisoned finish line. Hopefully, the American voters will be concerned enough to find the antidote and a way back to the strong tradition of who we are: Home of the brave and land of the free.

 

Question is, who will it be? First woman,?  first Hispanic? or who? -- I vote for Kasich/Fiorina, for political sanity.

Scalia was a defender of our ideals

 

The untimely death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is a great loss to the enforcement of and defense of the original intent and interpretation of the U.S. Constitution, our founding document. Indeed, he was a great jurist and true American.

 

Unfortunately, President Obama announced that he would nominate a successor to Justice Scalia rather than leaving the nomination to the next president to be elected this year.

 

Of course, he wrongfully intends to nominate a justice who would carry out his legacy of fundamentally transforming America to a legacy of tearing down our Republic and our future of freedom, as he continues to circumvent the Congress and the Constitution with executive orders and monarchial edicts, unabated.

 

Clearly, the Republican Senate must reject Mr. Obama’s nomination to the court. Our country has suffered enough under his administration, seriously damaging our domestic and national security.

 

Again, our only hope is to elect a strong conservative president such as Sen. Marco Rubio, maintain a Republican Congress and replace the leading conservative voice on the Court with a constitutionalist like Justice Scalia.

Brown’s attack on California

 

Governor Brown is so wrapped-up in himself as the only real governor of California, that he fanaticizes about holding the office until his last breath. However, when and if reality sets in, the state will realize that he has been little more than a political hustler whose Prop. 30 taxed the lives, and Prop. 47 endangered the lives of the people of the state. Now he has another prison initiative to release even criminals to prey on the people.

 

Indeed, Gov. Jerry has been the miserable master of California’s punishing taxes, implementing anti-economy Prop. 32 regulations, the miseducation money pit, sanctuary state of crime, leaking rainy day surpluses, drought neglect, and the San Francisco to Los Angeles bullet train wreck. Clearly, Mr. Brown now wants his $68 billion-times-two-toy train to start in Northern California instead of Southern so he can play with it first.

 

All at taxpayers’ expense and security, of course. For that is the languishing lament of liberal state politics – and what a longtime diminishing development it has been. Alas, rather than suffering in silence, it’s time to for voters to wise-up and make changes to survive and prosper – for a change….

Obama’s Iran scam

 

President Obama and Secretary of State Kerry have taken a giant step backward in giving the terrorist state of Iran everything they want, with nothing in return but seriously reducing our national security. Indeed, our naval patrol boats unintentionally straying into Iranian waters gave the president exactly what he needed to complete the national security nightmare deal with Iran.

 

Clearly, it wasn’t enough sucking-up to Iran for releasing our humiliated sailors. No, President Obama and his Secretary of State stooge Kerry seized the moment, gave away the farm and bowed-down to terrorist Iran in the worst of ways, by making another unbalanced exchange for U.S. prisoners, removing all sanctions, releasing $billions in funds, and finalizing the phony nuclear deal.

 

Which, of course, puts Israel, America and the world in ever-greater danger -- leaves our long-held FBI agent hostage in Iran -- and by releasing Guantanamo terrorists, Mr. Obama continues to exacerbate the damage to our overall national security. Clearly, coupled with laying America bare to terrorism, President “Osama” Obama’s insidious pursuit of his warped legacy is simply insane….

Public betrayal in Hollywood

 

Black activists hardly have room to complain about being snubbed by white dominated Hollywood awards time. Particularly, when black movies have increased over the past few years. Indeed, Concussion was black dominated because sports are black dominated. And Straight outta Compton was a success, even though irresponsible in depicting angry black gangster rap, which is damaging to young people and society – yet very popular so-called music that is frequently used in movies. Surely, it must be noted that blacks are over-represented in television, commercials and many movies.

 

The Big Short incompletely and irresponsibly depicts Wall Street greed as the culprit in the 2008 housing and financial crash, when in fact, it was President Clinton and his administration who caused the collapse by intimidating banks and mortgage lenders into giving home loans to unqualified buyers to push his affordable housing agenda. Wall Street simply did the best they could in reaction to being faced with disaster.

 

Spotlight incompletely and irresponsibly depicts the child molestation in the Catholic clergy, but fails to portray why it happened: A massive move by gay pedophiles into Catholic seminaries during the 1970’s and 1980’s, wherein, as Catholic priests, they would have an unlimited supply of altar-boy victims to prey upon. The church was simply the overwhelmed by the predators and struggled to deal with it.

Obama’s chaos 2016

 

President Obama’s latest unconstitutional executive orders against gun owners and the Second Amendment comes as no surprise. Clearly, Mr. Obama’s staged phony tears over mass murders of children were certainly lacking when he conveniently stopped to meet with families of the victims of the San Bernardino terrorist attack, while on his way to an extended vacation in Hawaii.

 

Surely, his legacy-building history of unlawful executive orders and edicts have been tantamount to treason. Indeed, President Obama has been on a campaign of creating chaos in America since he took office in 2008, which is consistent with Saul Alinsky’s socialist Rules for Radicals, which Hillary Clinton ascribed to in her college thesis. Certainly, they have both betrayed America’s national security time after time in dealing with Islamic terrorism

 

What America must realize is that the Middle East has been in a war of Sunni vs. Shiite tribal savagery for centuries, which is now coming to a head between the Saudi Sunni and Iranian Shia. Lest we forget, we backed Sunni Saddam Hussein when he went to war with Iranian Shia and only took him on when he invaded Kuwait.

 

Then it all went under because Iran exploited Iraq and the nation building didn’t work. Extreme Islamists like al-Qaeda and ISIS simply exacerbates everything against their common infidel enemies, America and the West. Thus we’re caught in the middle of the war of savages. Meanwhile we must elect a strong Republican president and Congress, vigorously defend ourselves at all costs, and hope the Islamic terrorists destroy themselves.

Clinton election would be suicide

 

We are the American people!

 

President Obama is a rogue, lawless president, blatantly abusing his executive power, circumventing the Constitution, and contaminating most, if not all, departments of our government -- primarily the DOD, DOJ, EPA, FCC, Homeland Security and the Bureau of Prisons -- which have severely weakened our domestic and national security.

 

And that, for lack of a better term -- exacerbating the terrorist threat in an era of escalating terrorism -- is recklessly un-American, tantamount to treason.

 

Indeed, replacing President Obama with Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election would be voter-assisted suicide for our nation.

 

Therefore, our duty as voters is to elect a highly qualified Republican patriotic dynamic duo from the field of candidates: Sen. Rubio, Gov. Christie, Gov. Kasich and Carly Fiorina as president and vice president to save and recover the United States of America, as intended by our Founders….

Presidential candidates

 

Donald Trump is loose cannon, exploiting American angst, oblivious to Putin’s aggression.

 

Hillary Clinton and President Obama are the team who disassembled the Middle East, abandoned Israel, the Ukraine, NATO and surrendered to terrorism.

 

Indeed, Obama reduced our nuclear power 90 percent from Reagan’s 15,000 warheads to 1,500, while making a bad deal allowing Iran to become a nuclear weapons power, assisted by Putin, leading to the potential of nuclear war.

 

Clearly, America has reached critical mass, and the 2016 Presidential election is vital to our survival, meaning the direction of leadership must be turned around. But not by a dangerous Donald Trump or a corrupt Hillary Clinton.

 

Which leaves the right choices against terrorism and for the economy to the voters -- who must elect a presidential team such as Rubio, Fiorina, Cruz, Kasich, Christie and Huckabee -- or any dynamic duo thereof -- including a draft of Romney -- to lead us to safety, security and prosperity.

Close the borders

 

With the madness of terrorism out of control in the world, it has now become a foregone conclusion that President Obama is resigned to leaving America vulnerable to inevitable ISIS attacks on our homeland.

 

Therefore, Congress must take action to slam the doors on our borders with Canada and Mexico, and to stop all refugees and immigration from other countries to protect our nation from the evil of ISIS.

 

Of course that means no refugees from Syria or anywhere until ISIS and all of our enemies are defeated. When it’s a matter of them or us, we must prevail with whatever it takes, as we have always done.

In 2016, vote for strength, prosperity

 

Donald Trump is loose cannon, exploiting American angst, and he is oblivious to Russian President Putin’s aggression. Hillary Rodham Clinton and President Obama are the team that disassembled the Middle East and abandoned Israel, Ukraine and NATO, while surrendering to terrorism.

 

Indeed, Mr. Obama reduced our nuclear power by 90 percent( from Ronald Reagan’s 15,000 warheads we are now at 1,500) while making a bad deal that will allow Iran to become a nuclear-weapons power assisted by Putin. This will lead to the potential of nuclear war.

 

Clearly, America has reached critical mass, and the 2016 Presidential election is vital to our survival. The direction of leadership must be turned around, but not by a dangerous Donald Trump or a corrupt Hillary Clinton.

 

That leaves the right choices against terrorism and for the economy to the voters, who must elect a presidential team from candidates such as Marco Rubio, Carly Fiorina, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, Chris Christie and Mike Huckabee to lead us to safety, security and prosperity.

 

We also need a Congress that will aggressively represent the best interests of the American people rather than its own selfish interests….

Obama’s legacy

 

President Obama is simply a phony president, deceiving the American people during his entire time in office, from Obamacare to global warming, from social engineering to the economy, from his limp responses to Russia’s aggression to being aloof to fighting terrorism.

 

Indeed, Mr. Obama’s meeting with the families of the San Bernardino terror victims is a matter indifference and convenience, little more than a pit stop on his way to a family vacation in Hawaii, all the while being obsessed by finishing his legacy.

 

Worse, our nation will be in unnecessary peril until he leaves office. Coupled with the 90’s corrosive counterculture Clinton administration, President Obama’s cultural abscess has been exacerbated by social divisions, abdicating his duty to domestic and national security.

 

All, while being oblivious to our fearful nation, steeped in uncertainty….

Proud of police response to SB attack

 

As a San Bernardino County resident and retired law enforcement officer with 41 years of service with the Los Angeles County and San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Departments and the criminal justice system, I am proud of the immediate and courageous response of San Bernardino Police Department to the terrorist attack killing 14 people, injuring 21. And for the rapid follow-up investigation resulting in the deaths of the two terrorists.

 

I am also grateful for the other law enforcement agencies who assisted in the response, and for the intense, ongoing FBI investigation. However, I am deeply concerned for my family and fellow citizens.

 

Indeed, the San Bernardino terrorist attack highlights President Obama’s feckless lack of an aggressive plan against terrorism. In the aftermath of the San Bernardino massacre, President Obama’s speech to the country was little more than meaningless babble masking the fact that he wants to disarm Americans more than prevailing against terrorism.

 

The Obama administration has grossly failed America’s national and domestic security by reducing our military strength, allowing the proliferation of ISIS, not enforcing border security and conducting an unjust war against our police, diminishing our domestic security.

Trump and the GOP

 

Donald Trump is political suicide for the Republican Party.

 

Following Donald Trump’s rise as a potential Republican nominee for the 2016 presidential election has gone from fresh conservative vigor to the inescapable conclusion that Trump as the Republican nominee would amount to political suicide for the Republican Party with dire consequences for our nation.

 

Indeed, it is certainly understandable that President Obama’s abuse of power and his feckless leadership have had a corrosive effect on America’s social, political and economic health, exacerbated by his dangerous irresponsibility in dealing with the growing terrorist threats to our national and domestic security.

 

However, Donald Trump -- the extreme antithesis to President Obama -- is not the answer. Though Trump talks tough and says what he knows his growing followers want to hear, he simply doesn’t have the temperament or the character to safely and responsibly lead our country.

 

Clearly, a president Trump would throw fuel on the fires of terrorism against America.

 

Instead, conservative, moderates and independents should support candidates such as a team of Sen. Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina for strong, clearheaded leadership to support and defend our Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic -- and to protect the American people.

 

Surely, the alternative of a president Hillary Clinton is an unacceptable risk. The cynical questions is, there might be a Trump-Ross Perot deception-effect in play, which would hand the presidency to Hillary whether Trump is the Republican nominee or not….

Need for a different kind of climate change

 

Dwarfing his costly Obamacare failure, President Obama spearheaded his legacy-seeking U.N. conference on climate change in Paris, resulting in a worldwide agreement to avert the worst effects of global warming by shifting economies to cleaner energy sources.

 

Sadly, the economy-busting climate change deception simply adds to the dangerously corrosive, decades-long social, political and economic climate change in America caused by liberal government, the miseducation establishment and media.

 

Alas, what America really needs is a reverse climate change -- of good and against evil -- with the strength of determined leadership and limited government. It’s a matter of our survival.

Deadly climate change deception

 

Dwarfing his costly Obamacare failure, President Obama spearheaded his legacy-seeking UN conference in Paris on Climate Change resulting in a worldwide agreement to avert the worst effects of global warming by shifting economies to cleaner energy sources to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

 

However, beginning with Al Gore’s Inconvenient Truth global warming deception backed by climate alarmist scientists, the campaign against greenhouse gases went into overdrive, exacerbated by reckless legislative actions highlighted in California by conference attendee, former Gov. Schwarzenegger’s punishing AB 32 carbon taxes.

 

Indeed, Ca. Gov. Brown gave a speech at the Paris conference, followed by a scene outside the center, singing along with Barry McGuire’s 1965 song, “We’re on the eve of destruction” as his legacy-seeking anthem to take drastic actions justifying his radical political moves by slashing oil consumption and sounding false  alarms against drought, disasters and terrorism. And, of course, L.A. Mayor Garcetti attended the conference and jumped on the environmentalist bandwagon.

 

Sadly, the delirious economy-busting climate change deception simply adds to the dangerously corrosive decades-long social, political and economic climate change in America caused by liberal government, the miseducation establishment and media bent on social, political and economic suicide.

 

Clearly evidenced by tyrannical laws and taxes, indoctrination of students robbing them of a real education --the Clinton-government-caused 2008 housing and financial meltdown -- President Obama’s feckless foreign policy and border enforcement resulting the proliferation of terrorism, illegal alien criminals, gangs and drugs -- and the collapse of our national and domestic security.

 

Alas, what America really needs is a reverse climate change to good against evil with the strength of determined leadership and limited government. It’s a matter of our survival….

Obama wants to disarm us

 

President Obama’s meaningless babble masks the fact that he wants to disarm Americans more than prevailing against terrorism.

The Obama administration has grossly failed America’s domestic and national security by not enforcing border security and the unchecked flow of illegal aliens including criminals and drugs – and conducting an unjust war against our police, diminishing our domestic security.

 

Indeed, President Obama’s feckless foreign policy, apologizing and criticizing America, weakening our military, and exacerbating Islamic terrorism causing the proliferation of ISIS and threats from Iran is increasing the clear and present danger to our homeland, the West and the World. Surely, what needs to end is the era of President Obama’s damage to our security, society, our economy and our future.

 

And that ideology and philosophy of promoting the climate change hustle and disarming Americans must end with the end of Mr. Obama’s second term in office…. Meanwhile Americans must be able to exercise their rights to self-defense against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Clearly, in 2016, voters must elect a president who will be a patriot commander in chief. Not a hapless damager in chief.

Tax and regulation nation

 

California Governor Brown and President Obama are the amoral poster governor and president for putting our already over-taxed and over-regulated state and nation into overdrive during their corrosive terms in office. Indeed, coupled with an un-American Socialist-Democrat-controlled Legislature and Congress, they have caused overwhelming damage to businesses, the economy and the American people.

 

Worse, Brown and Obama have recklessly diminished our domestic and national security, with open borders, sanctuary cities, reduced military, and wars against the police. And both continue promoting the climate change hustle, by taxing the economy and our lives. Even worse, while President is responsible for the proliferation of ISIS and terrorism, he blames it on climate change and travels the world criticizing America for everything.

 

Clearly, our only solution rests with voters, who until now have been dominated by indoctrinated liberals -- who carelessly rubberstamp the personal power of the enemy within -- blindly committing social, political, moral and economic suicide, taking the rest of us with them. Hopefully, enough damage will wake them up to defending themselves, surviving, recovering and prospering by changing and reducing government to no more than we need.

County’s refugee awareness

 

Slam the door to terrorists and criminals in California

 

President Obama urging America to open its arms to Syrian refugees and “….lift them up” is a profound hypocrisy after letting Syrians down in the Syrian civil war creating ISIS and the devastation that followed including the terrorist attacks in Paris. Indeed, California leads the states in Backing the president’s efforts.

 

Therefore, Governor Brown welcoming the most Syrian refugees of any state since the civil war broke out in 2011 comes as no surprise. Furthermore, California has the open door policy to refugees and illegal immigrants, inviting whatever evils that come along with them, from criminals to gangs, to drug smuggling, to human trafficking, and terrorists.

 

Worse, regardless of the Syrian refugee connection to the Paris terrorist attacks -- and most state governors refusing to accept Syrian refugees -- Governor Brown vowed to work with President Obama in accepting them, leaving our San Bernardino County unaware of most refugees who enter the County.

 

Even worse, like the illegal alien criminal who murdered a Californian U.S. citizen in San Francisco, with little or no protest from Californians, one wonders how far the controlling Democrat liberal infection here will affect the prevention of ISIS attacks in California, including San Bernardino County and our high desert communities….

 

It’s past time to slam the door to terrorists and criminals in California and America….

Terrorist treachery in Paris. Ten thousand Syrian refugees here?

 

The tragedy of ISIS terrorist attacks in Paris highlights the alarming advances of fanatical Islamic treachery in the West, furthering their march toward an unencumbered virtual reality of convert or die world domination against infidels.

 

Worse, the infectious spread of ISIS Sunni’s in the Middle East, coupled with competing terrorism from Iranian and Syrian Shiites, backed by Russia, foments historical tribal struggles which can easily metastasize into a coordinated effort against the great Satan – America!

 

Exacerbated by President Obama’s incompetent foreign policy, America’s historic role of power in keeping world peace has been compromised by weakness in the Obama administration’s, preoccupation with personal power and the blind pursuit of a legacy….

 

All of which, coupled with Mr. Obama’s abdication of responsibility, undermining our energy resources, lack of cyber security, Edward Snowden’s treason -- reduced military defense, national security, domestic security – and 7 years of open borders, leaves our country openly vulnerable to terrorism.

America in peril

 

President Obama made it painfully clear when he helped remove the dictators of Egypt and Libya and encouraged the Arab Spring to spread throughout the Middle East, that he would do nothing about the proliferation of terrorism when he neglected to stop the spread of ISIS from Syria into Iraq.

 

Furthermore, Mr. Obama endorsed Morsi as president of Egypt, and with it, the Muslim Brotherhood, which resulted in the expansion of al-Qaeda and the entry of ISIS into Egypt -- and most probably, resulted in the bombing of the Russian airliner.

 

Surely, President Obama is simply not dealing with the aggression and threats from ISIS, Iran or Russia, which creates more and more danger for the world. Most certainly, his unabated incompetence has failed our national and domestic security, which places America in grave, ever-increasing peril.

 

Alas, the president’s feckless administration is in the last round of a legacy that has done serious damage by reducing America to a quasi-socialist state pushing a superficial society of selfish interests, social aggression, political chaos, and economic instability – a perfect handover to a Saul Alinsky-loving first woman president by the name of Hillary Clinton.

Border control needed

 

The debate between GOP presidential contenders Donald Trump and Jeb Bush over deporting 12 million illegal immigrants is a moot point, particularly when the fundamental problem has been the lack of border security since President Reagan granted amnesty to 3 million illegal immigrants with the understanding that there would be border security.

 

Of course, it has become painfully clear that the border was not secured -- coupled with years of feckless attempts at immigration reform -- resulting in the 12 million or more illegal immigrants in America.

 

And illegal immigration is growing at an alarming rate. Currently, this is because of President Obama’s continued record of little or no border enforcement, unsuccessful deportations, and his attempt to grant amnesty to 5 million illegals.

 

Ironically, Mr. Trump’s suggestion to build a border wall would go a long way to solving the problem, particularly because of the increasing threats to our domestic and national security in this age of crime and terrorism.

 

After all, it is a significant responsibility of the president to resolve problems – and President Obama creates problems, yet resolves none, which is also Hillary Clinton’s main problem….

Plea for aid fails to address root problems

 

Governor Brown’s feckless last minute plea for the U.S. Forest Service to fund removal of dead trees from our national forest lands is little more than a better-late-than-never attempt to diminish the rapid spread of forest fires in California and the West, but fails to address the root problems.

 

Indeed, environmentalist-caused failure to control massive tree deaths from bark beetles, coupled with the Forest Service’s failure to thin forests, remove dead trees, control prescribed burns, and failure to aggressively attack forest fires are the causes of major runaway forest fires, not the prolonged drought.

 

Surely, cost of lost forest lands, lives and property from tree-hugging environmentalists and incompetent government -- exacerbated by drought and the coming El-Nino rains -- will drive the grim point home to beleaguered wildlands, firefighters, victims and taxpayers.

True Americans

 

Monica Kelley’s “English” and “Left-wing radicals” letters drive home the points of what America was meant to be. Indeed, English is the American language, as it was meant to be. And we are a constitutional republic of representative democracy, as it was meant to be.

 

What America is not, is what a half-century of counter-culture revolution of radicals and extremists have done to undermine our nation’s constitutional freedoms -- in the name of freedom -- with insidious, vitriolic movements bent on destroying our society with chaos created by our enemies within.

 

And that is the big-government-socialist way of political indoctrination against conservatives, family, morals and free markets by dividing and conquering, creating a path to tyranny – propelled by the liberal education establishment, the malicious media and the malignant entertainment industry.

 

Fortunately, we the people are now more informed and painfully aware of the consequences of the intentional failures of good intentions.

 

Instead of settling for a superficial society replete with social and political aggression, selfish interests and extremes, we must hold on to our liberty, and keep a tight grip on our freedom. The shame of good deeds is they are not appreciated for generations.

 

The tragedy of bad deeds is they are not resisted until it’s too late. Therefore, as Monica Kelley writes, “Please think before you act.

Monumental abuse of power

 

Senator Dianne Feinstein and President Obama have abused their power under the Antiquities Act to create massive national monuments to themselves throughout the United States and California restricting recreation and mining on federal lands. Indeed, the Antiquities Act was passed in 1906 to protect “historic landmarks, historic and prehistoric structures and other objects of historic or scientific interest,” including sensitive Native American artifacts.

 

The need for protecting the Grand Canyon with Arizona’s proposed Greater Grand Canyon National Heritage Act under the Antiquities Act notwithstanding, there is a need to pass HR 3668, the California Minerals, Off-Road Recreation and Conservation Act, introduced by our California Representative Paul Cook to preserve our majestic landscape, while addressing the needs off-road vehicle users and the protection of economically vital mineral sites.

 

President Obama’s monumental agenda is rooted in his war against coal energy and oil exploration -- with deceptive distractions such as the San Gabriel National Monument, and the recently established 704,000 acre monument in Nevada – while Senator Feinstein focuses on our Mojave Desert lands as her personal monument. Though I’m not a fan of off-road racing and dangerous thrill-seeking, I support people’s use of off-road vehicles to safely explore our deserts and mountains – and I certainly support our economic interests in vital minerals and mining.

 

Surely, we voters must get our act together to reverse and prevent government abuse of power in land-grabbing and in every other respect.

GOP candidates are not treated fairly

 

As the 2016 presidential debates began, Fox News hosted the first GOP debate, which was fair and balanced. Less so, when the second debate was hosted by CNN, which was slanted by the usual liberal-elitist questioning.


Meanwhile, the first Democrat presidential debate hosted by CNN was little more than fawning over the candidates, concluding with the anointing of Hillary Clinton as the first woman president, just as the liberal media did with Barack Obama as the first black president in 2008.

 

However, the third GOP debate hosted by NBC’s business channel CNBC was anything but subtle bias. Rather than concentrating on their specialty, the economy, panel members were condescending, rude, sometimes hostile to the candidates with personal attacks, which came as no surprise from the left.

Benghazi, Clinton and politics

 

Hillary Clintons deceptions covering her failings in the Benghazi terrorist attack will not affect her being anointed by the liberal media as the first woman president, just as they did with Barack Obama as the first black president.

 

The only thing that could derail her candidacy would be an indictment as a result of the FBI/DOJ investigation into her national security email violations, which is unlikely. President Obama won’t allow that to taint his manufactured legacy.

 

Unfortunately for Mr. Obama, true history will not smile kindly upon an unworthy president with a feckless foreign and domestic policy who put America in great peril.

Against the advice of his generals, President Obama is cutting U.S. forces in Afghanistan by half, but changed his plans to evacuate, leaving 5,000 troops until 2017. That meager force will do nothing to change the plans of the Taliban and ISIS to take-over the country.

President Obama’s perfect record

 

In President Obama’s press conference October 2, 2015, he made it abundantly clear that he will not oppose Putin’s military support of Syria’s dictator, which is consistent with Obama’s perfect record of standing back from the fight against all Islamic terrorist organizations in the Middle East.

 

Indeed, President Obama’s lack of action and weak foreign policy is responsible for the birth of the so-called “Arab Spring” bringing down the dictators of Egypt, Libya and other nations resulting in the proliferation of the Muslim Brotherhood, al-Qaeda, other terrorist groups and the seed and proliferation of ISIS. All of which results in the sad conclusion that, although dictators are mostly bad, in the Islamic Middle East they have historically prevented the terror that reigns there today.

 

Alas, it is painfully clear that if the Shah of Iran had not been removed by the Ayatollah Khomeini who established a radical Islamic state -- which is now the chief sponsor of terrorism in the world – sworn to destroy Israel and America, our 9/11 efforts in Afghanistan and Iraq would not be so much in vain, and the Middle East would not have exploded into Islamic terrorism against the World.

 

Add the proliferation of unchecked China and Russian aggression to our enemies mix, President Obama is maintaining a painfully perfect record of tearing down America, disarming us at home and abroad, dangerously reducing our national and domestic security, and thus our freedoms.

Motorcycles and the law

 

The California Legislature must take immediate action to criminalize the dangerous activity of motorcycle gangsters intimidating law-abiding motorists on our freeways and highways, and the similar insanity by dangerous single motorcyclists lane-splitting at 20 to 50 MPH above the flow of traffic. Indeed, they act with total disregard for their own safety and the safety of automobile drivers and their families.

 

For example, the single reckless driving motorcycle lane-splitters is a daily danger on the freeways, and the motorcycle gangster groups are all too frequent. Recently, my wife and I traveled to Temecula and stopped at a Chevron station near Old Town. The station pumps were completely tied-up by a gang of motorcyclists, some of whom were done with the pumps, but hung around talking to each other causing us to wait nearly 20 minutes for a pump.

 

After we left looking for a restaurant, one of the gang bikers stopped traffic on a busy road so his fellow gangsters could ride out of a parking lot. The next day, while traveling to our home on the I-15, a different gang of bikers were dangerously lane-splitting in a group, and when traffic slowed in the freeway construction areas of the Cajon Pass, they rode past recklessly on the inside shoulder of the freeway.

 

Surely, these are crimes, not traffic infractions. Again, the Legislature and Governor must criminalize this menace, which must be strictly enforced by the CHP and other law enforcement agencies for all our safety. After all, the menacing motorcyclists don’t own exclusive rights to the freeways and highways, the motoring, tax paying public does.

Coddling our enemies

 

President Obama has made it painfully clear that he has no responsibility for America’s national and domestic security as evidenced by coddling the Taliban and ISIS, by Russia’s aggression in Europe and Syria and his making a bad deal with Iran.

 

Surely, Obama and family will bask in secure retirement, while his socialist legacy will ensure the demise of our freedom -- unless there is a voter revolt and a concerted conservative rescue and recovery from the 2016 elections. Fiorina and Rubio anyone?

 

(Original letter)

 

President Obama coddling our enemies

 

President Obama has made it painfully clear that he has no responsibility for America’s national and domestic security as evidenced by coddling the Taliban (Bowe Bergdahl prisoner exchange); ISIS (allowing them to flourish and run over the Middle East); Russia’s aggression in Europe, Syria and assisting Iran’s nuclear ambitions; making a bad deal with Iran than will ensure them obtaining nuclear weapons; China undermining our economy, and illegal alien criminals preying on our citizens with impunity.

 

Indeed, Mr. Obama has intentionally established himself as our greatest threat by turning his back on America and our enemies to pursue his insidious agenda of fundamentally transforming the United States. Surely, Obama and family will bask in secure retirement, while his socialist legacy will ensure the demise of our freedom -- unless there is a voter revolt and a concerted conservative rescue and recovery from the 2016 elections – Fiorina and Rubio anyone?

Prosecute Clinton gang

 

Former president Bill Clinton, AG Janet Reno, HUD director and Andrew Cuomo Intimidated banks and mortgage lenders into giving home loans to unqualified buyers to promote Clinton's unaffordable housing scheme, which was carried out by co-conspirator Fannie Mae chairman and CEO, Franklin Raines, and perpetuated by congressional finance chairmen, Barney Frank and Chris Dodd, until the housing and finance crash of 2008. Indeed, Raines consulted with Senator Obama during his campaign for president, and the collapse was wrongly blamed on President Bush and Wall Street – thus Obama won the election.

 

President Bush attempted to stop the runaway housing problem, but was stopped by Frank and Dodd, who ended up authoring the Dodd/Frank finance act so President Obama could control the banks. The Entire insidious, deceitful plan was perpetuated throughout the Obama administration, which fueled the Occupy Wall Street movement and the call for the prosecution of Wall Street executives. Now late in Obama’s distraction legacy game, his Justice Department is targeting executives for prosecution, when they should be targeting the Clinton gang, and probably Obama before the bigger crash comes.

 

Surely, it’s time for big, liberal government’s abuse of power to start losing, and for the American people and taxpayers to start winning….

Common Core’s federal control of education standards

 

It is common knowledge and well understood that President Obama’s establishment of Common Core education standards is a direct move for federal control of public education similar to nationalizing health care with the un-Affordable Care Act.

 

Indeed, it is also common knowledge that ObamaCareless is seriously damaging to health care, the economy and the American people.

 

Worse, Common Core Is the final blow of what began as the miseducation of teachers and students in the liberal-socialist counterculture revolution of the 1960’s and the subsequent indoctrination of our students, robbing them of a productive education.

 

Coupled with President Obama’s control of energy, finance and housing, the president’s fundamental transformation of America is reaching completion, which is frightening….

No sanctuary for criminals

 

As a retired law enforcement officer, I am outraged by San Francisco’s insidious sanctuary policy that caused the murder of an innocent young woman at the hands of a habitual criminal alien with 7 felony convictions and 5 deportations, who was released by San Francisco authorities after felony drug charges were dropped, refusing to honor an ICE hold placed on him.

 

Indeed, San Francisco is as guilty as the heinous shooter, and should be held responsible. The murderer should be convicted and sentenced to life without parole, period! San Francisco and the feckless State of California, are in dire need of a complete social, political and economic overhaul….  Alas, the loss of this precious life is sad and unforgiveable.

Stop punishing smokers

 

It’s bad enough that California smokers have endured decades of regulations, being demonized as social outcasts at the hands of liberal political elites, the media and Hollywood – and subjected to punishing taxes such as Rob Reiner’s deceitful Prop. 10, which were used for everything but tobacco-related healthcare.

 

Indeed, at a time when marijuana is on the verge of being legalized, the evil Democrat empire in Sacramento is planning a $2.00 per pack tax which would greatly expand the tyranny against smokers as the California cash cows for government incompetence and waste.

 

The problem is, the taxes will punish the poor who are smokers more than anyone – alas, the very people Democrats claim they want to help. Surely, California crashing and burning is on track to do just that, exacerbated by forest fire air pollution attacking everyone’s health.

Another cigarette tax hike: Haven’t California smokers paid enough?

 

It’s bad enough that California smokers have endured decades of regulations, being demonized as social outcasts at the hands of liberal political elites, the media and Hollywood – and subjected to punishing taxes such as Proposition 10 in 1998, which did not fund healthcare.

 

Indeed, at a time when marijuana is on the verge of being legalized, Democrats are planning a $2-per-pack tax that would expand the tyranny against smokers as well as being a cash cow for government incompetence and waste.

 

The problem is, the taxes will punish the poor who, are smokers more than others – alas, the very people Democrats claim they want to help. Surely, California is on track to crash and burn, exacerbated by forest fire air pollution attacking everyone’s health.

The war on law enforcement’s latest casualty

 

The ugly ambush and assassination of Deputy Darren Goforth continues the war against police by murderous gangsters throughout the nation.

 

It is a result of the counter culture revolution of the 1960’s, intensified by riots, perpetuated by gangster rappers led by those like Tupac Shakur inciting the assassination of cops, exacerbated by people like former Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton.

 

I know this from 41-years of service in law enforcement and the criminal justice system. I am deeply concerned for my friends, family, community, state and country.

 

Indeed, since President Obama’s election, promising to fundamentally transform America, he has pushed our already damaged nation further down a social, political and economic road to legacy-seeking ruin at hyper-speed.

 

Sadly, America has been deeply infected by the socialist cancer carried by the far-Left’s extremists’ tyranny of the minority, and the miseducation of our students by indoctrination.

 

Together with severely weakening our national security in the face of a growing world of terrorism, and the police -- our first line of defense -- our future looks desperately grim.

 

Hopefully, the people will wake up, and the silent majority will speak up and work to turn it all around – for our survival – and return to what America really means. God bless Deputy Goforth’s family and his memory. We must not let his tragic death and all the others be forgotten.

Obama silent on police murder

 

The unconscionable ambush assassination of Houston Deputy Darren Goforth this week continues the war against police by murderous gangsters throughout the nation. This war is a result of the counter culture revolution of the 1960’s, intensified by riots, and perpetuated by gangster rappers such as Tupac Shakur that incited the execution of cops. It has been exacerbated by President Obama’s former Attorney Gen Eric H. Holder Jr. and the Rev. Al Sharpton whose actions against local and state law enforcement failed to condemn the escalating the black-against-black gang murders.

 

I know this from 41-years of service in law enforcement and the criminal justice system, beginning in 1960. I am deeply concerned for the safety of my friends, family, community, state and country. Indeed, since the 2008 presidential election, prior to which Mr. Obama promised to fundamentally transform America, our president has pushed our already damaged nation further and further down a social, political and economic road to ruin. He seeks a legacy at all costs.

 

Sadly, America has been deeply infected by the socialist cancer of the far left. The miseducation of our students by indoctrination has robbed our next generation of a real education. The current administration continues to move to severely weaken our national security even as we face the global spread of  terrorism. Our future looks desperately grim.

 

Hopefully, the people will wake up, and the silent majority will find its voice prior to next year’s presidential election. It must do so for our survival and in order to return to America to its roots.

 

Mr. Obama spoke out against the murder late last year of the two New York Police Department officers, but he has yet to condemn Deputy Goforth’s assassination. The silence is deafening. God bless Deputy Goforth’s family and his memory. We must not let his tragic death and all the others be forgotten

Clinton’s email espionage

 

Hillary Clinton will likely escape prosecution for her top secret email espionage simply because the Clinton’s have “gotten away with murder” since they burst on the political scene in 1992, winning the presidency by default, handed to them by Ross Perot.

 

Indeed, as a former law enforcement officer since 1960, and since my retirement in 2006, I have witnessed the rise and decline of our country -- including the Clinton “horror story”  and President Obama’s abysmal terms in office – causing me to be deeply concerned for my family, my country and the American people.

 

Clearly, It was bad enough that Bill Clinton’s silver tongue conned his way passed a long history of sexually abusing women, to accomplish his goals for fame and power, backed by his greedy, ruthless wife and first lady, Hillary -- at any cost.

 

Alas, that cost included fraudulent land and stock deals, the lives of Arkansas state troopers, White House troubled ally, Vince Foster, surviving impeachment and removal from office, Pardoning America’s foremost tax cheat and traitor, Marc Rich, stealing White House property, being the root cause of the 2008 housing and financial collapse, and working the system for personal gain and absolute power.

 

Coupled with her profitable illegal deals with foreign powers, incompetent service as secretary of state – costing the lives of four Americans including our ambassador at Benghazi, Libya – and receiving classified emails on her private server (tantamount to treason), Hillary Clinton is not qualified to hold public office, particularly the presidency. Clearly, there will be ample evidence to prosecute her.

Time to turn our government around

 

Re: “Can California cut gasoline usage in half in 15 years? Probably not” (Aug. 12)

 

California government punishing the populace

 

Look what’s happening to Californians: The California political elite in Sacramento and elsewhere are leading activists, and indoctrinated voters to punishing businesses and the populace with insane laws, which will surely result in a self-imposed collapse of our economy, our security and our society.

 

Highlighted by the costly miseducation of our students, strangling our energy resources, electricity, transportation, personal and business income with onerous regulations -- deceitful voter-approved Propositions, including a stupid bullet train – Californians are literally under siege by a destructive ideology.

 

Alas, taken together, Assembly Bill 32 cap and trade, Proposition 30, extreme taxation and now Senate Bill 350 cutting gas use by 50 percent, coupled with AB 109 and Prop. 47 criminal releases and sanctuary cities, and opening prison and jail gates, releasing criminals to prey on the people in the middle of an unjust war against the police, our first line of defense, is bad government that needs to be replaced by limited government and real democracy….

 

Indeed, at a time when California’s authoritarian government is trying to eliminate voters’ constitutional rights to initiative, referendum and recall, it’s time to turn government around.

Dynamic trio

 

In the first Republican debate for president, Gov. Scott Walker, Carly Fiorina and Dr. Ben Carson confirmed their credentials as a dynamic duo who could and should win the 2016 presidential election. Indeed, with either candidate as the nominee for president, and the other as a vice president running mate, they have the capacity and expertise to turn government and the economy around as should have been done decades ago.

 

Clearly, Gov. Walker has proven himself as a chief state executive officer with the courage and conviction to get results from taking on the tyranny of government and teacher unions, reducing the size of government, cutting taxes and creating jobs, which got him re-elected twice. He is also the only governor who survived a recall election.

 

Coupled with Newt Gingrich and Gov. John Kasich as his chiefs of staff, Walker would be an ideal president. And surely, Carly Fiorina proved herself as the CEO of HP, the largest tech company in the world, with a deep knowledge of the overall economy, highly capable as vice president to correct government’s role. Indeed, Dr. Ben Carson is sorely needed as the Secretary of HHS to deal with Obamacare and to prepare its repeal.

 

A strong president and administration is just what our country needs to recover from the serious damage inflicted on America’s society, economy, domestic and national security by President Obama and his administration, hopefully, before it’s too late…. Walker and Fiorina are the best choices to do that.

Stewart’s damage is permanent

 

Anyone who has seen and listened to Jon Stewart before he gained fame and influence from his satirical “Daily Show” would know he is, at the core, an angry, vicious, radical socialist, who used his devious talents for a 16-year run on Comedy Central.

 

Indeed, his political influence poisoned the minds of his young-voter audiences, which gave him the power to lure powerful people and politicians to his table. Hopefully, he will not use that power to continue his cloaked crusade of liberal tyranny in his retirement.

 

But don’t count on it. The infection is permanent, [just as it is with Bill Maher, including their mutual war against religion.]

Obama’s power abuse plan

 

As promised by President Obama in his 2008 presidential campaign -- stating that he would eliminate coal-power and establish renewable energy, which would necessarily cause people’s electricity rates to skyrocket -- Mr. Obama is marching non-stop down the road to fulfilling his legacy at any cost, waving the flag of the global-warming hoax, while he continues fundamentally transforming America, as promised.....

 

Certainly, coupled with nationalizing health care, over-regulating Wall Street and the finance industry, establishing national education -- and lawlessly circumventing the Constitution and Congress with continuous executive orders and imperial edicts – President Obama’s abuse of power seems limitless.

 

Worse, the president’s feckless foreign policy has allowed Russia’s aggression to escalate, the al-Qaeda – ISIS terror machines to spread throughout the Middle East and the world, and Iran’s state-sponsored terrorism to reign toward nuclear weapons, the destruction of Israel and attacks against America and the West.   

 

Sadly, along with the lack of border security, the infiltration of criminal illegal aliens, socialist chaos, damaging race relations and his war against the police, President Obama Is in the process of pounding the final nails of his legacy into America’s social, political, economic, domestic and national security coffin.

 

Alas, hope is not lost if American voters rise up, reject the liberal disease infecting our country, and take back government in the 2016 elections….

Trump support retraction

 

As reader Philip Gericke rightly pointed out, how anyone could be drawn to Donald Trump is difficult to fathom, I am embarrassed and apologize with an  explanation: Before the Daily Press published my letter supporting Trump, I submitted a commentary two weeks earlier (July 20) modifying my support to Gov. Scott Walker for president and Carly Fiorina for vice president, a dynamic duo.

 

Indeed, after watching the first Republic debate, and first question to the candidates, I realized that I was being hustled by Trump, as I painfully recalled being hustled and betrayed by Ross Perot, which had caused me to change from Republican to Independent to support him.

 

The first Republican debate hosted by Fox News was a great success, revealing the core principles of each candidate, most of whom were highly qualified, with two standouts. First was Carly Fiorina who clearly won the second-tier debate, which should elevate her into the first tier.

 

Second, and more importantly, was Donald Trump, who disturbingly refused to take the pledge not to run as an independent candidate, which would clearly hand the general election to presumed Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, just as Ross Perot did for Bill Clinton to spite George H.W. Bush in 1992.

 

For that reason, Donald Trump should be scorned and ignored by Republican and most independent voters.

 

Indeed, the best choices for a Republican presidency should be as follows: Scott Walker, president; Carly Fiorina, Vice President, with major Cabinet positions comprised of: Marco Rubio, Secretary of State; Ted Cruz, Secretary of Defense; Rick Perry, Homeland Security; Chris Christie, Attorney General; John Kasich, Secretary of the Treasury; Ben Carson, Secretary of Health and Human Services; Rand Paul,  Secretary of Commerce; and the Department of Education eliminated.

 

Finally, as a result of the 2016 elections, if Republican don’t control the Presidency and the Congress, flaming liberals lit and fueled by President Obama and Hillary Clinton, exacerbated by Russia, China and terrorists, will surely burn down America.
