The Alinsky-ization of Brett Kavanaugh


Here’s how Democrats and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) Alinsky-ized Brett Kavanaugh, in the lead up to, during, and after his U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

1: “Power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”

Outnumbered 51-49, Senate Democrats know that the arithmetic isn’t on their side.  If the Democrats and Republicans each hold court along party lines, Kavanaugh is our next justice, thanks to the nuclear option employed by Kentucky senator Mitch McConnell last year to get Justice Neil Gorsuch confirmed. 

But a two-senator lead means the tie-breaking voter, Vice President Mike Pence, had better be on call when the roll call vote to confirm Kavanaugh is held.  Democrats undoubtedly consider Republican senators Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, of Maine and Alaska, respectively, to be free agents, particularly over Roe v. Wade.  Kavanaugh was relentlessly questioned by Democrats over abortion; the goal was to create doubt that Collins and Murkowski would vote to confirm him.  If uncertainty exists, it’s unlikely that Democrats from states President Trump won in 2016 will cross the aisle.  If Democrats somehow secure 51 nays, we’ll have the modern-day version of Borked: Kavanaughed.  

2. “Never go outside the expertise of your people.”

Alinsky wrote in Rules that “the issue is never the issue.”  The reason the Democrats were obsessed with the documents withheld by the president has nothing to do with the documents; it has to do with the fact that the Democrats on the Committee on the Judiciary were unwilling to have substantive legal discussions.  Why?  Simple: because Kavanaugh would have made the Democrats – several of whom are trained attorneys – look like first-day law school students.  Having authored 307 opinions, from 2,700 cases, during his 12 years as a federal judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals, along with dozens of speeches to law schools and legal groups, Kavanaugh’s jurisprudence bona fides are not only rock solid, but also very public.  There is zero we don’t know about Kavanaugh’s interpretive approach and acumen.

3. “Whenever possible go outside the expertise of the enemy.”

I suspect that this rule guided The New York Times’ and Associated Press’s show-me-the-woman-and-I’ll-show-you-the-crime expedition two months ago for the work emails of Kavanaugh’s wife, Ashley, who was hired earlier this year as town manager of Chevy Chase, Md.  The Times requested any emails that contained the words “gun,” “abortion,” “federalist” or “gay.”  Perhaps the Times believed that Mrs. Kavanaugh was fond of attending The Federalist Society lectures about concealed carrying lesbians who believe that abortion is creepy.  The Times’ request was a big dud; 85 pages of emails later, and, I’m sure, much to the newspaper’s chagrin, nothing incriminating, and nothing about guns, abortion, gays, or federalists was discovered.  The AP requested all of her work emails but hasn’t yet reported on its findings.

4. “Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules.”

Though there weren’t explicit questions about Kavanaugh’s Catholic faith, he noted his work with Catholic Charities.  This rule was the basis for California senator Cuckoo Kamala Harris’s lie that Kavanaugh called birth control abortion-inducing drugs (have you noticed how often I’ve already written about abortion?).  And here’s the ACLU’s predictable fear-mongering that Kavanaugh would usher in a theocratic oligarchy.  In fairness, I’m not angry at the ACLU, because voting is a lot like any decision or purchase: it’s done based on fear or greed.

5. “Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon.”

Kavanaugh has been in Washington for decades; he’s what many of us would call an “establishment” figure.  This has provided an opportunity for the DMIC to attack his establishment “elitism,” which President Trump swore to reject by draining the swamp.  The median household income of Kavanugh’s ZIP code is $12,000 a month, his house cost $1.2 million to purchase, and Kavanaugh racked up tens of thousands of dollars in credit debt to buy Washington Nationals season tickets.  As coach of one of his daughters’ basketball teams, his moniker is “Coach K.”  If the nickname Coach K doesn’t smack of elitism, I don’t know what does.  The DMIC showed no qualms in portraying Kavanaugh as an out-of-touch Beltway insider.  Oh, yeah, and people will die if he’s confirmed.

6. “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

Democrats know that most of their voters are out for blood, and a “good tactic” was to inextricably link Kavanaugh to President Trump, an “unindicted co-conspirator,” according to Harris and Connecticut senator Richard Blumenthal, due to the plea deal of Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen.

In the old days, Democrats weren’t quite as politically loony as they currently are and were definitely more likable.  Unlikability is a good tactic for the Democrats; the temperament of a justice is important, and the more unlikeable Democrats were in their questioning, the better the chances Kavanaugh would lose his cool.  But alas, he kept his cool, especially during Harris’s entrapping questions about possible conversations he had with Trump’s lawyer’s firm regarding the Mueller investigation.  The Democrats tried to force Kavanaugh into the role of de facto spokesman for the president, but he was ready for them. 

7. “A tactic that drags on too long becomes a drag.”

I didn’t watch every second of the hearings, but I watched more than 75 percent, and Democrats said Trump’s name dozens of times.  New Jersey senator Cory Booker handled Trump fatigue by putting on a theatrical production worthy of Broadway: Booker, whose claim to fame was interrogating Mike Pompeo about sodomy during his secretary of state confirmation hearings, dared his Republican colleagues to expel him from the Senate.  As was expected, President George W. Bush’s name popped up.  Kavanaugh worked for Bush, and the implication is that Kavanaugh has always been associated with illegitimate presidents.

8. “Keep the pressure on.”

This is one of the easier rules to follow, because specifics aren’t necessary.  Attorneys who litigate before the Supreme Court know to expect random barrages of questions, and the Democrats kept up the pressure by interrupting Kavanaugh dozens of times, not including the interruptions from protesters.  The interruptions failed in knocking Kavanaugh off his game – same for the objections to the hearings, coordinated by Democrats.  

9. “The threat is usually more terrifying than the thing itself.”

If I had to pick one rule sold the hardest by Democrats, it’s this one.  The “threats” posed by Kavanaugh sound a lot like the threats posed by Robert Bork, nominated by President Reagan in 1982.  Said Massachusetts senator Edward Kennedy: 

Bork’s America is a land in which women would be forced into back-alley abortions, blacks would sit at segregated lunch counters, rogue police could break down citizens’ doors in midnight raids, schoolchildren could not be taught about evolution[.]

Of course, had Bork been confirmed, none of those things would have occurred.  But that wasn’t important; it was the “what if?” threat of those things.  In Kavanaugh’s case, workers will have zero rights, felons will own machine guns, and women will be forced into back-alley abortions and die.

10. “The major premise for tactics is the development of operations that will maintain a constant pressure upon the opposition.”

If Kavanaugh is confirmed, the Democrats will have lost the battle, but they will consider the larger war still winnable – especially considering that he’s expected to be confirmed a month before the midterm elections.  It was quite apparent which Democrats were thinking about running for president in 2020 (Harris and Booker) and which weren’t (Partrick Leahy of Vermont).  Those positioning themselves for a White House run will incorporate their self-aggrandizing “resistance” to Kavanaugh into their campaigns.

11. “If you push a negative hard and deep enough it will break through into its counterside.”

In the case of Kavanaugh, this is a slight overlap of Rule 1.  Trump has gotten 60 federal judges confirmed, is reforming the Supreme Court to how the Founders envisioned it, and has 100 pending federal judicial appointments.  These realities are red-meat selling points to Democrat voters: “Look at the havoc Trump has wrought!  We must prevent him from further destruction!”  Just how deep it will break into the counterside remains to be seen, but desperation is all Democrats have left (although projected demographics, if not engaged, don’t bode well for America First).

12. “The price of a successful attack is a constructive alternative.”

To have a chance of winning long-term political battles, there must be self-immolation and sacrificial lambs within the Democratic Party ranks.  Adaptation is key.  This is already underway, as evidenced by the rise of “democratic socialist” primary winners nationwide.  In America, Leninism has always been implemented in creeping doses, until one day, it’s mainstream.  The constructive alternative will continue to be the message that overt, out-in-the-open socialism is necessary to prevent future Brett Kavanaughs.

13. “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

In Clintonian fashion, the Democrats will persist.  Remember: Kavanaugh can’t prove he’s not racist, or that he won’t vote to send abortion battles back to the states, where they belonged in the first place.  The Democrats will continue to color Kavanaugh identically to how we describe Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor: as an untrustworthy judge who legislates from the bench.

My prediction: Kavanaugh will receive 54 votes to confirm, with Collins and Murkowski unlikely to defect.

Republicans and conservatives are fond of referencing Chicago community organizer Saul Alinsky, but how many have read his body of work?  I’ve always referred to Alinsky’s secular agitator bible, Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals, as the sequel to The Communist Manifesto.  Published in 1972, shortly before Alinsky’s death, Rules was a significant part of President Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s political upbringings – although he more influenced Obama, who followed in Alinsky’s community organizing footsteps in Chicago in the ’80s. 

Alinsky’s thirteen rules are effective.  The first step to challenging them is actually recognizing them.

Here’s how Democrats and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) Alinsky-ized Brett Kavanaugh, in the lead up to, during, and after his U.S. Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

How Trump Can Save Free Speech from Big Tech


The president has been busy keeping many of the promises he made as a candidate, so perhaps my request is unfair.  I’m mindful, however, that he has similarly ambitious and entrepreneurial children, who are active on social media.

Politics is sales, and here’s my pitch. 

Americans Are Powerless

From Dennis Prager to The New York Post to Alex Jones, among others, we’ve watched the Big Tech Industrial Complex purge speech and rhetoric with which it disagrees.

It’s no small irony that the same tech companies that manipulated search data, such as Google, to work to help Hillary Clinton – she of the faux socialist resistance to the rich and powerful – constitute an absurdly rich and absurdly powerful Brahmin-like conglomerate of omnipotent tech demigods.

Think long and hard about this: what, really, can we the American people do about shadowbanning?  Or sudden, abrupt removals of comments or posts?  Or popular videos that are placed on page 425 of a search engine, or, worse, are blocked from public viewings due to creepily arbitrary “hate speech” standards?  Perhaps most disheartening is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and now that the toothpaste is out of the tube, it’s likely that the tech companies will never be able to restore trust in their impartiality and integrity – much the same way many Americans will never again trust the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex).  People buy and decide based on perception, and the irreversible perception the Big Tech Industrial Complex has cultivated is a very un-American hostility toward conservative political beliefs.

Sure, conservatives and America First voters could cease use of tech and social media platforms – which, in a way, is a win for Big Tech.

What about regulation, First Amendment lawsuits and antitrust litigation? All sound promising, in theory, but do we really want the federal government anywhere near the Internet? How, exactly, would the Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communications Commission keep up with the 24-7 flow of data and content created by billions of users?  Answer: They won’t, and Big Tech regulation would just be more Big Government – an information superhighway iteration of Cash for Clunkers.  Big Tech would be, at any given moment, years ahead of even the most rigorous regulatory requirements, and don’t get me started on Attorney General Jefferson Sessions.

Furthermore, is there really an antitrust or First Amendment case to be made?  When the federal government won its landmark antitrust suit against Microsoft in 1998, it won on the legal basis that Microsoft was stifling its competition.  Pray, tell: how do the current tactics of Big Tech stifle competition?  Prager, Jones, and The New York Post all have their own websites; I’m unaware of any evidence that Big Tech has done anything to directly obstruct their abilities to get noticed and found on any internet search engine.

As John Stossell, one of my favorite Fox personalities, remarked recently, the tech companies likely have the constitutional right to kick whomever they want off their platforms and app markets.  Want to sue them?  Go right ahead.  Taking down, for example, Apple, the world’s first trillion-dollar-valued company, would be easy-breezy, wouldn’t it?  Though I’m not a bettin’ man, I suspect that the same justices who sided with baker Jack Phillips would side with Big Tech.

Trump the Tech Icon?

So if more government, lawyers, and playing nice won’t work, what would?

This is where the president steps in.  He and his family have made a vast fortune.  Providing a viable alternative to his tens of millions of unwavering supporters – in which users post, comment, and upload free of the tyranny of Big Brother-ish uncertainty that no one will see their content due to manipulation of algorithms designed by foreign workers who can’t even vote in our elections – would make an Earth-quaking impact overnight.

The president himself had said that without Twitter, he might not be president.  If true, that’s a testament to him and his former digital media director (and current 2020 campaign chairman) Brad Parscale, more than Twitter.

Trump Valley.  Trumpbook.  Trumpitter.  TrumpTube.  Trumpterest.  Trumpagram.  Hell, create a new search engine, free of manipulation: Trumpoogle.  Name me one Trump-supporter you know who wouldn’t utilize the full suite of the Trump Valley platform; you can’t.  (This is the part where Ben Shapiro and Senators Jeff Flake and Ben Sasse lament the “echo chamber.”)

I have a two-reason theory as to why we’ve not seen a Trump-branded mode of online communication: first, the president and family don’t know how to make the many moving parts synchronize (I do, but I won’t yet reveal; as The Joker said in The Dark Knight, if you’re good at something, never do it for free); second, he and his family don’t know how to monetize it.

Like everything else they touch, Democrats have destroyed speech on the internet, irrespective of its erudition or asininity.  But there’s never been a better time to use technology to continue strengthening the America First political movement that has so frightened Big Tech, it’s gone to, and continues to go to, great lengths to suppress and make vanished anything even remotely resembling pro-Trump or conservatism.

Mr. President, please consider what I’m saying.  It all sounds impossibly daunting, but so was your electoral win – a win that was America’s political black swan event.  At the 2016 RNC convention, in which you were formally named the GOP nominee, your daughter, Ivanka, boldly stated that the election could make the impossible possible.

Trump needs to embolden and unify his side.  Let him send the Tessio Republicans, eager to betray us, as Sal Tessio did to Michael Corleone, as well as the Democratic Party and their corporate sycophants, reeling further into their downward spiral.  Let him channel your inner Sonny Corleone and take it personal, as many of your supporters have.

Big Tech and their Democrat sympathizers in Congress are on the ropes, and they know it.  Do you think they all recently convened a meeting to discuss their daughters’ weddings and yoga?  This is no time for rope-a-dope; rather, it’s a time to relentlessly attack, in the spirit of General George Patton, whom Trump is fond of quoting at your rallies and pressers.  With the midterms fast approaching, and the 2020 election heating up, time is not our friend; urgency, with a sense of urgency, is necessary to defang the Democrats.  The opposition seeks to subvert our will and our Constitution by impeaching Trump, for the crime of winning more than 270 electoral votes.

The Democrats and Tessios thought our victory was just a fad, and that we’d lose interest once the new car smell waned; the Democrats, in particular, viewed the defeat of The Original but Now Second Chosen One as a bump in the road en route to owning the presidency, federal and supreme courts, and the internet forever.  Much to all their chagrin, what seemed guaranteed to fade away has moved in the opposite direction, steered by a fired up and excited voting base.

It’s time for Trump to redefine what it means to be a Man of the People.  This, perhaps even more than any legislative achievement, will unequivocally ensconce his standing as a visionary and revolutionary president and American.

Politicians aren’t saviors or messiahs.  Devoutly secular worship of government – the belief that the State (capital S) is God – is inherent in the Democratic Party’s ideology and marketing.

At the risk of belying my adamant opposition to idolatry, I implore President Trump to save free speech on the internet.

The president has been busy keeping many of the promises he made as a candidate, so perhaps my request is unfair.  I’m mindful, however, that he has similarly ambitious and entrepreneurial children, who are active on social media.

It’s time for Trump to redefine what it means to be a Man of the People.  This, perhaps even more than any legislative achievement, will unequivocally ensconce his standing as a visionary and revolutionary president and American.

Democrats: The Party of the Super-Duper (Mostly White) Gazillionaires


Though there are numerous questions I could ask to determine if a fellow American gets his “news” from the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex), I usually lead with this one: “What political party is the party of the wealthy?”

If the answer is “the Republican Party,” I know that the individual is a regular consumer of DMIC propaganda.  It’s tempting to get angered at the individual, but I know that two of the ways the DMIC lies are by distorting and withholding.

The Democratic Party is the party of the mega-, mega-wealthy.  This is one of the dangerous cover-ups of the DMIC.  Let’s go to the tale of the tape.

Here are the top ten American billionaires, according to Forbes:

  1. Bill Gates, $86 billion
  2. Warren Buffet, $75.6
  3. Jeff Bezos, $72.8
  4. Mark Zuckerberg, $56.0
  5. Larry Ellison, $52.2
  6. Charles Koch, $48.3
  7. David Koch, $48.3
  8. Michael Bloomberg, $47.5
  9. Larry Page, $40.7
  10. Sergey Brin, $39.8

Well, well, well – look at all that wealth that could be redistributed!  The above wealth totals $567 billion.  The Ds above outnumber the Rs 7-3 (I counted the Kochs twice, even though they could be counted as one; the third is Ellison), with 74% of the wealth owned by the Democrats. 

Oh, the hypocrisy, the hypocrisy!  Perhaps you’re asking yourself: What’s my fair share of all those billions?

Democrats spread their wealth to other Democrats

Make no mistake: in addition to campaign contributions, which can be viewed at OpenSecrets.org (I have no affiliation), the Democrat billionaires do believe in wealth redistribution, which is why they’ve invested their monies across every Democrat-friendly industry – from media to technology to anti-Second Amendment groups.  It’s the Democrats’ (legal) version of a Madoff scheme.

In 2016, the Kochs – favorite targets of Democrats – spent over $31 million ($11 million to candidates and political action committees and $20 million on lobbying).  These big bucks certainly are not chump change, but they’re ranked 39 among all donors to candidates and PACs and 27 among all lobbyist spending.

Whatever one’s opinion of money in politics, in all its forms – soft, hard, dark, by individual, by family – it’s indisputable that it is a wide and deep hole that both major parties have leveraged.

But why stop at the Democrat gazillionaires?  Let’s take a look at other Democrat 1-Percenters.

I checked dollar amounts at the Federal Election Commission, where campaign contributions are tabulated (keep in mind that there is usually a lag in tabulations – sometimes up to a year due to off-year election years).  Here’s a 2014 graph; there’s some crossover, but the D contributions outnumber R by almost half a billion dollars, and this is over the last 25 years.

For 2016 federal contributions to organizations, seven of the top 10 (including number 1) went to Democrats, totaling over $300 million.

For 2016 federal contributions to individuals, six of the top 10 (including number 1) went to Democrats, totaling nearly $250 million.

In the 2016 Presidential election, President Trump spent $325 million; Clinton spent $563 million.

The Democrat myth of publicly financed elections

Does one really think Democrats want campaign finance reform, or publicly financed elections, or higher taxes for the wealthy?  The Democrats’ counter is always well, those are the rules of the game, and we’re playing the game.  Money in politics is a legitimately concerning issue, but Democrats need to spare us the sanctimonious moralizing that they give mucho dinero out of the sheer kindness of their hearts.

Democrats love money in politics as much as Republicans, and they keep their sheep voters occupied with hating the 2010 U.S. Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United v. FEC, which had nothing to do with campaign contributions; it had to do with the constitutionality of airing on television a Citizens United-produced documentary about Hillary Clinton before the 2008 Democratic Party primary.

Marxist warfare

Money in politics is more ammo in the Democrats’ Marxist war of economic hate and envy.  President Trump’s election, in large part, stemmed from small business owners and dirty-fingernails workers who have grown tired of the condescending “you didn’t build that” remarks made famous by President Obama and U.S. senator Elizabeth Warren.  The super-rich do well no matter who’s president, and they did extraordinarily well under Obama.  (Obama’s net worth, it should be noted, is approximately $8 million; his net worth was around $1.7 million when first elected president, and his 2015 tax return showed an effective tax rate of around 19% – lower than Warren Buffett’s secretary’s!).  It’s estimated that 90% of income gains went to the top 1% under Obama, who spent a cool $1.9 billion in his 2008 and 2012 campaigns.

Let’s give “honorable mention” to Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim, who is the fourth wealthiest billionaire in the world and a majority stakeholder in The New York Times Company.  Over the years, Slim, both personally and through his company, Telmex, has contributed millions to the Clinton Foundation.  All this means that Mr. Slim, a Mexican citizen, has heavily involved himself in American politics.  Sounds an awful lot like collusion, doesn’t it?

The DMIC (of which Mr. Slim is a member) has carefully, and effectively, crafted a narrative that the GOP is the party of wealthy whites.  As usual with anything Democrat, the opposite is true: wealthy whites predominantly vote for and fund Democrats, and the top ten most expensive cities in America are populated by mostly white, limousine liberal Democrats.

Conversely, Democrat policies in the inner cities are guaranteed to fail.  Here’s the proof.

But your Democrat friends and relatives knew all this from Bill Gates, Rachel Maddow, and Media Matters for America, right?

Note to GOP: Enough with the Betrayals


Remember the famous garden scene in The Godfather when Marlon Brando’s character, Don Vito Corleone, warns his son, Michael, played by Al Pacino, that someone close to the family will arrange a meeting where Michael will be assassinated?

The real-life political equivalent of that landmark cinematic moment is playing out before our eyes, with the Republican National Committee and congressional Republicans.  On the omnibus, on the Second Amendment, on border safety – almost every issue – the GOP continues to betray the family.  Who is the family?  The American people.

In fairness, yes, Justice Gorsuch’s confirmation, the president’s constitutionally bona fide federal judges, and tax reform were big wins in the last year.

But we didn’t elect the biggest GOP majority in the modern era to take baby steps, did we?  We colored the map red to take giant leaps, especially after eight years of mostly impotent GOP opposition to President Obama.  And let’s be honest about this: 90 percent of the reason our map was red is because of President Trump.

Is the Republican Party trying to lose?

After the 2016 election, I wondered if the Republican Party would be the Super Bowl LI Atlanta Falcons of American politics – hold a record lead, blow the lead, and lose the game.

Now, however, I’m beginning to think the GOP is the 1919 Chicago White Sox.  Eight players from that team, whom we refer to as “Black Sox,” were banned from baseball for life after they stood trial for conspiracy to throw the World Series to the Cincinnati Reds.

After 14 months of observing the GOP under President Trump, I cannot come to a conclusion other than that they are losing on purpose – or are trying so meekly that their wins are accidental.

We know that being in touch with small business-owners and working families isn’t politicians’ strong suit.  But are Tessio Republicans such as Paul Ryan; Mitch McConnell; and my senator, Marco Rubio, among others, really so in GOP la-la land that they still haven’t figured out why Donald Trump was elected?  Trump received the most votes in the history of his party’s primary.  Rather than ride that unprecedented wave, the GOP keeps wiping out like a three-year old on a boogie board for the first time.

The well of the lesser of two evils has run dry for the Republican Party, I fear.  We elected Republicans not to live under Democrat policies, such as catch and release, Planned Parenthood funding, Obamacare status quo, and sanctuary city funding – all of which were included in the $1.3-trillion omnibus the President signed last week.  No, signing it doesn’t necessarily mean we’ll get some or all of those policies, and yes, I agree that the president should have vetoed it (and used an executive order, which I’m not always a fan of, to fund the military).  But what really happened is that the McConnell-Ryan “leadership” gave the president a Democrat lite bill, knowing he’d sign it.

The GOP is afraid to fight

In 2009, President Obama lectured helpless Republicans with his “elections have consequences” remark.  Translation: I won, you lost, and I don’t need to work with you; you need to work with me.  He was correct.

In 2013, Obama said to Republicans, “Go out there and win an election.”

Well, we won…and won…and won…over 1,000 congressional and state wins since 2008.  So with all these victories, why do so many faithful Republican voters feel as though we’re losing?

The Republican Party is afraid to fight and erroneously continues to believe that record amounts of money raised will miraculously convince Democrats to vote Republican.  Record amounts of money will not turn a mediocre candidate into a dynamic and exciting candidate.  Republicans are losing elections they shouldn’t even have to get out of bed to win; how will we entice viable candidates to step out of their families and work lives to run for national, state, and local elections?  The RNC outspent the DNC 11-1 in the Pennsylvania Lamb-Saccone congressional race a few weeks ago and still lost.  So much for fiscal conservatism and minding the store.

Every time the Republican Party gives the Democrats what they want, it slaps us all in the face.  It slaps in the face those who contributed their hard-earned money, those who volunteered their time, those who advocated candidacies, those who knocked on doors in hot and cold, those who licked the distasteful glue of envelope mailers, and those who elected Republicans.

This is why I am organizing a Demand to Be Heard trip to the RNC’s Spring meeting May 4.  Those interested in attending can contact me through the means listed in my bio at the conclusion of this article.

I want someone to find me one instance under Obama when Democrats in Congress, or anywhere, for that matter, asked what Republican voters wanted.  No one can, because none exists.

Elections have consequences.  So why is it that the consequences of our win have been acquiescing to the openly bigoted Democratic Party?

In The Godfather, Tessio knew exactly what he was doing.  He gambled, thought he would get away with it, but eventually met his fate of sleeping with the fishes.  There are too many Tessios within the GOP, and my warning to them is this:

Don’t ever take sides against the family again.  Ever.

America doesn't have a gun violence epidemic. Democrat cities do.


Guns and gun crime are the new climate change: those who know nothing about the subject are suddenly “experts.” 

I call this faux expertise Albert Gore-itis, and I discuss it at length in my upcoming first book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child is Becoming a Democrat.

College pottery majors and donkey cheese-eating, Che Guevera T-shirt-wearing trust fund babies fancy themselves firearms gurus (FYI, donkey cheese is the world’s most expensive).  That doesn’t really bother me as much as the lying-by-withholding that the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) and Redcoat gun-grabbing organizations (funded by millionaires and billionaires, such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg) engage in when discussing guns and gun crime.

Democrat policies kill

America does not have a gun crime epidemic.  There are, however, epidemics in many locales and cities.  Who do you think runs the vast majority of those cities?

NRA-funded Republicans?

No.

Lobbyists for firearm manufacturers?

No.

The vast majority of those cities have been run by Democrats for decades upon decades.

Here are the top 20 cities with the highest gun murder rates in the U.S. per capita.  Of these, every city except the last one, Tulsa, has a Democrat majority in the mayoralty and City Council or Board of Aldermen.

Here are the non-fatal shootings top 20 per capita.  Notice the overlap of several cities; the cities on the non-fatal list absent on the murder list are also Democrat-run cities, except for the last one, Jacksonville.

Here’s a sampling of five longtime Democrat empires (all days are consecutive and uninterrupted).  All appear in the top 20 lists:

1. St. Louis: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 15,000 days.

2. Baltimore: only Democrat mayors and only Democrat City Council; 18,000 days.

3. Philadelphia: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 20,000 days.

4. Detroit: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 22,000 days.

5. Chicago: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 30,000 days.

The Democrats have ruled Chicago for longer than Stalin ruled the USSR, the Castros in Cuba, and the Kims in North Korea, and for longer than slavery was legal in the U.S.

Exhausted yet?  There’s more.

These are America’s top 10 most violent cities, according to FBI data.  Violent crimes include homicides, gun violence, gangs, pedophilia, and robberies.

Every city is majority Democrat-controlled.  Several of the cities on the FBI’s list also appear on the aforementioned murder and non-fatal shootings lists.  Because the FBI’s ranking is per capita, several cities such as Chicago and Newark (only Democrat mayors; 90% City Council; 23,000 days) are absent.

Still with me?  St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans crack the top 50 for most dangerous cities on the planet.  New Orleans has elected only Democrat mayors for the last 55,000 consecutive days; the United States as a nation has existed for 88,000 days.  New Orleans’s city council is, in theory, nonpartisan; I’ll let you conclude how nonpartisan it is.

As a side note on Chicago: A report last year estimated that 60% of guns recovered in Chicago came from out of state, with 20% traced back to Indiana and others from Wisconsin.  Though difficult to determine from where exactly, in each state, the guns originated, I believe it’s reasonable to speculate that they came not from rural areas, but from the big cities, such as Indianapolis and Milwaukee (run, of course, by…drum roll…Democrats).  What, you thought Wisconsin and Indiana were red states?  Red states are dead; only blue and pur-blue exist.

Stats don’t lie; Democrats do

Democrats sell local gun crime epidemics as national gun crime epidemics. And listen: their sales pitch is effective.  I rarely hear Republicans, conservatives, or even the NRA effectively combat this pitch.  Data is mixed, depending on the study, but since the ’90s, gun violence and homicides nationally have declined.  But not in Democrat-controlled cities.

Also, Democrats always pad the stat sheet by mixing in gun-related deaths from suicide and suspects shot and killed by police officers.

The old saying “stats don’t lie; statisticians do” can be used in any ideological context.  But when it comes to the DMIC, Democrats and Redcoat gun-grabbers, one of two things is at work:

  1. They’re unaware that the epidemics are largely isolated in Democrat city monopolies, thereby making them dangerously ignorant.
  2. They are aware, thereby making them…well, just dangerous, just like the cities they rule over. 

When it comes to the crème de la crème of cities with gun crime, Democrats control 95% – yes, 95% – of the top 20.  As one moves into the top 50 and 100 cities, the percentage dips, but not by much.

Our rights are under fire

Helping the Democrats’ cause is the fact that they are now overtly and in-your-face exploiting our youths as Redcoat gun control propaganda props.  The Democrats have pitted us against children and created creepy kid activists.  How do we win a battle challenging kids?  Answer: We don’t, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it all the time.  The Democrats are always on offense.  It’s not enough for us to match their intensity; we must exceed it.  Republicans and conservatives usually underestimate the Democrats and fail to understand their tactics.

The way Republicans and conservatives win this narrative war is by talking about the entire story, and one is not telling the entire story without hammering home over and over again the indisputable failures of Democrat gun and crime policies. While statements such as “we’re not Sweden” and “those countries don’t have a Second Amendment” are correct, they render the message incomplete.  Winning this narrative war will not be easy, but it can be done.

Chances are that those of you reading this don’t live in a city with mass gun crime.  Remove the data from municipal Democrat quasi-monarchies, and our gun crime rate is lower than Heaven’s.

If we could just convince Democrats and Tessio Republicans to self-deport, I suspect that our crime rates would significantly decrease in an evening or two.  One can only dream.

Every city is majority Democrat-controlled.  Several of the cities on the FBI’s list also appear on the aforementioned murder and non-fatal shootings lists.  Because the FBI’s ranking is per capita, several cities such as Chicago and Newark (only Democrat mayors; 90% City Council; 23,000 days) are absent.

Still with me?  St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans crack the top 50 for most dangerous cities on the planet.  New Orleans has elected only Democrat mayors for the last 55,000 consecutive days; the United States as a nation has existed for 88,000 days.  New Orleans’s city council is, in theory, nonpartisan; I’ll let you conclude how nonpartisan it is.

As a side note on Chicago: A report last year estimated that 60% of guns recovered in Chicago came from out of state, with 20% traced back to Indiana and others from Wisconsin.  Though difficult to determine from where exactly, in each state, the guns originated, I believe it’s reasonable to speculate that they came not from rural areas, but from the big cities, such as Indianapolis and Milwaukee (run, of course, by…drum roll…Democrats).  What, you thought Wisconsin and Indiana were red states?  Red states are dead; only blue and pur-blue exist.

Stats don’t lie; Democrats do

Democrats sell local gun crime epidemics as national gun crime epidemics. And listen: their sales pitch is effective.  I rarely hear Republicans, conservatives, or even the NRA effectively combat this pitch.  Data is mixed, depending on the study, but since the ’90s, gun violence and homicides nationally have declined.  But not in Democrat-controlled cities.

Also, Democrats always pad the stat sheet by mixing in gun-related deaths from suicide and suspects shot and killed by police officers.

The old saying “stats don’t lie; statisticians do” can be used in any ideological context.  But when it comes to the DMIC, Democrats and Redcoat gun-grabbers, one of two things is at work:

  1. They’re unaware that the epidemics are largely isolated in Democrat city monopolies, thereby making them dangerously ignorant.
  2. They are aware, thereby making them…well, just dangerous, just like the cities they rule over. 

When it comes to the crème de la crème of cities with gun crime, Democrats control 95% – yes, 95% – of the top 20.  As one moves into the top 50 and 100 cities, the percentage dips, but not by much.

Our rights are under fire

Helping the Democrats’ cause is the fact that they are now overtly and in-your-face exploiting our youths as Redcoat gun control propaganda props.  The Democrats have pitted us against children and created creepy kid activists.  How do we win a battle challenging kids?  Answer: We don’t, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it all the time.  The Democrats are always on offense.  It’s not enough for us to match their intensity; we must exceed it.  Republicans and conservatives usually underestimate the Democrats and fail to understand their tactics.

The way Republicans and conservatives win this narrative war is by talking about the entire story, and one is not telling the entire story without hammering home over and over again the indisputable failures of Democrat gun and crime policies. While statements such as “we’re not Sweden” and “those countries don’t have a Second Amendment” are correct, they render the message incomplete.  Winning this narrative war will not be easy, but it can be done.

Chances are that those of you reading this don’t live in a city with mass gun crime.  Remove the data from municipal Democrat quasi-monarchies, and our gun crime rate is lower than Heaven’s.

If we could just convince Democrats and Tessio Republicans to self-deport, I suspect that our crime rates would significantly decrease in an evening or two.  One can only dream.

Foreign Collusion? It's Rampant in Big Tech


You want foreign collusion?  I’ve got foreign collusion for you.  On your phones, computers, tablets, and laptops.  In your bedroom, living room, and kitchen.

The Big Tech Industrial Complex has thousands of H-1B visa and green card employees.  Some of these workers’ roles are as engineers, analysts, and programmers, in the departments responsible for the regulation, suppression and censorship of political speech their parent companies have deemed hateful, inflammatory, and inappropriate for young audiences.

What this means is that foreigners who cannot vote in American elections have been given carte blanche by their bosses and executives to tyrannically muzzle political thought and opinions, which undoubtedly can, and likely does, influence the outcomes of American elections at all levels of government.

Here’s the tale of the tape of the top two Big Tech firms with federally approved H-1B and green card workers since 2014 (figures are from http://www.myvisajobs.com):

Twitter: 1,226

Google (including YouTube): 15,368

Though it is unclear exactly how many of the nearly 17,000 workers are directly responsible for the collusion, even a small percentage equals a lot of collusion.

Putin wishes he could collude like Big Tech

Vladimir Putin?  He ain’t got nothin’ on Big Tech.  And speaking of collusion, where are all the Democrats and Tessio Republicans obsessed with the “President Trump is Alger Hiss” conspiracy theory?

Big Tech fancies itself as God, as an omnipotent and omniscient Supreme Being.  The surreptitiousness by which, for example, Twitter operates is highly sophisticated.  Furthermore, the San Francisco-based social media company has always been cozy with Democrats and is notorious for denying right-leaning ads.

Ironically, news of the recent forced unfollowings of millions of users’ accounts was reported on Twitter.

Google is currently facing a lawsuit from conservative icon Dennis Prager, who alleges that YouTube restricted 30 videos from his PragerU channel due to their political themes and topics.  Some of the videos’ titles were “The most important question about abortion,” “Where are the moderate Muslims?,” and “Is Islam a religion of peace?”  Many of PragerU’s 4- to 5-minute vignette-presenters are well known conservative pundits, professors, and Pulitzer Prize-winners.

Twitter, likewise, is facing lawsuits from plaintiffs alleging that they were banned due to their views on race.

To make matters worse, the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) is no longer masking its fetish for speech control.  (You thought guns were the only right the DMIC wants to control in its “all for me, none for thee” zeal?)  DMIC colluder and conspirator CNN recently embarked on a propaganda activist campaign against Infowars’ Alex Jones.  Whatever one’s opinion of Jones, it’s flat-out creepy how fervent the DMIC is on its anti-First Amendment warpath.

Have any of you ever, for a single second, heard DMIC networks, newspapers, and other organizations question the ethical appropriateness of foreign workers at American companies manipulating what political content their users see and don’t see, based on political ideology?

Me neither.

Online discrimination is worse than segregation

The internet is the greatest invention in mankind’s history.  I am a frequent Twitter and Google user; I have a YouTube video channel.  The Democrats told us the repeal of net neutrality was Armageddon (until tax reform came along – Democrats meant to say tax reform was Armageddon!).  Why, then, haven’t those same Democrats so in favor of net neutrality spoken a word about shadowbanning?

Our country, and our world, is fueled by technology.  Technology and the internet connect us in ways our elders never could have envisioned; one out of every three human beings on Earth communicates via the internet.  This is why I forewarn: continued, furtive, and unchecked discrimination against political viewpoints will make segregation and McCarthyism look like Camelot.  Segregationists and Joseph McCarthy operated openly; Big Tech, however, seems to relish the invisible influence it wields over its end users.

Democrats made a big deal about, and levied six figures in fines against, a baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex couple, based on his religious beliefs.  But Democrats support Big Tech’s silencing of Republicans, conservatives, President Trump, and his supporters.  There are certainly legal arguments to be made that Big Tech is well within its rights to handpick what content appears on its platforms, but its obsession with trampling speech it arbitrarily labels as “hate speech” reeks of actual discrimination – the tech version of refusing service based on race, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.

Big Government, with all of its onerous regulations, always stifles economic growth, especially among small business.  But perhaps the time has come for the Federal Communications Commission to begin a serious examination of whether Big Tech has become too much like Orwell’s Animal Farm: “all views are equal, but some are more equal than others.”  Free speech is often beautiful and often ugly.  Freedom isn’t really about agreeing or disagreeing with speech; it’s about equally supporting the right to speech we deem agreeable or disagreeable.

The free market of ideas must be left as untouched as possible.  It’s true that no right is absolute, but mega-conglomerates weaponizing their services is frighteningly totalitarian.  If Fidel Castro, or Mao, or Pol Pot, or…fill in the dictator blank…had this kind of technology, he would have leveraged it exactly as Big Tech does today.

If foreign workers despotically meddling in our online political speech doesn’t keep us up at night, what will?

Why Won't Barack Obama Go Away?


Why do those who criticize Donald Trump for not being a “traditional” president fawn over President Obama not being a “traditional” post-presidential citizen?

I would say Michelle and Barack Obama are back in the news, but they’ve never left the news since the 22nd Amendment mercifully exiled them from the Oval Office last year.  When President Clinton took the oath of office in 1992, President George H.W. Bush went away.  When President George W. Bush assumed power in 2000, President Clinton went away (until the prospect of being the first gentleman came a-knockin’).  When President Obama placed his hand on President Lincoln’s Bible in 2008, President Bush went away.

When President Trump made his miraculous win constitutionally official last year, President Obama went away, back to Chicago, to administer the death and destruction left in the wake of 30,000 consecutive days of Democrat rule over the Windy City.

Just kidding: Obama moved into a $5-million D.C. mansion – but only after the wall surrounding the 8,000-square-foot mansion was completely erected.  Oh, and Obama’s former senior adviser, Valerie Jarrett, moved in with the Obamas, which is just bizarrely weird.  It’s like House of Cards meets Three’s Company; rumor has it that Val makes a mean Belgian waffle with an Iranian secret touch.

Obama the Hollywood star

The Obamas are in talks with Netflix to produce their own show, and let’s face it: that deal is as good as done.  I can already envision the episodes: “Louis Farrakhan: The Misunderstood Bigot,” “How to Community Organize and Eat Deep Dish Pizza at the Same Time,” “The Raúl Castro Interview, Part 2 (Raul Still Thinks America Sucks, and Who Am I to Disagree?).”

One episode I suspect won’t be produced is “Why I Will Remain the de Facto President for the Resistance for the Next Decade.”

There are very few political and policy decisions of Obama’s for which I give two thumbs up, but I will always marvel at how sophisticated his 2008 campaign was.  Obama knew with 100% certainty that he would be elected president after systematically delimbing the Clinton Industrial Complex.  But he didn’t want to merely defeat Arizona senator John McCain; he wanted to render him the Mondale of the Republican Party.  Obama didn’t win 49 states, but he won an election with a record turnout of percentage of registered voters.  A Christ-Gandhi ticket would have lost to Obama.

Obama was on nothing but offense, and his campaign understood well the nuances of the little things about campaigning.  His brain trust split data into micros of microdata – what people ate, when they went to bed and woke up, their voting history (or lack thereof)…seemingly everything.

Activist president, activist post-presidential citizen

Obama was our nation’s first overt activist president.  In fairness, all presidents are activists to some extent, but Obama perfected the art form.  Remember: his political upbringing was as an acolyte of  community organizer Saul Alinsky, rallying roach-smoking, Che Guevera t-shirt-wearing, vanilla chai green tea latte with organic unfiltered raw goat milk with turbinado sugar-drinking occupants of $4,000 monthly gentrified studio apartments while remonstrating against income inequality and too low taxes for wealthy white people (even though the vast majority of wealthy whites vote Democrat).

So are we to believe that Obama will not continue to carry his activist past into his post-presidential life?  Of course not.  Obama has always been smarter than most Democrat politicians; unlike Clinton, whose own husband doesn’t like her, Obama and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) have had quite the love affair.  The love is so strong that it’s a borderline extramarital affair.

Obama knows that the Democrats have no one on deck to challenge President Trump in 2020, and we’ll likely have Trump and Mike Pence as president for 12-16 years.  (Republicans: Don’t you dare stay home on Election Day – red states no longer exist, and we cannot afford to lose the House of Representatives.)  Knowing that Trump and Pence will likely occupy the White House for nearly two decades, Obama has comfortably assumed the role of the face of the “resistance” and will have carte blanche from the DMIC and sycophantic Democrat voters to undermine President Trump ad infinitum.  Never mind the mountain of scandals accumulated in Obama’s 96 months as president, including an alleged spying scandal that’s shaping up to be an all-time Mother of All.

Democrats don’t care, just as they disdain our Constitution and Electoral College.  Democrats believe they have the right to be right, and they will beat you into submitting to their will.  No, Donald Trump isn’t a traditional president, but the American people don’t mind, just so long as President Trump keeps his promises (and kept promises he has).  Too bad Tessio Republicans in Congress can’t seem to support the president for consecutive days.

The “fundamental transformation”

Barack Obama promised a “fundamental transformation” when he took office in 2008, and he was true to his word.  When googly-eyed, Ludovico-induced Obamaites cheered “four more years!” at his farewell speech, Obama smilingly reminded them that our Constitution prohibits that.  Prior presidents always bid adieu to the nation from the Oval Office, but Obama broke tradition and, predictably, was praised by the oh, so devout DMIC.  Hell, even Canadians wanted another Obama term.  Does that qualify as collusion?

When Obama was elected, I did wonder what could be: a president who would take a flamethrower to the final remnants of the myth that America is still a racist nation; a president who would finally pick apart the self-victimization celebrity status culture the way he picked apart his opponents in elections; and a president who, as the West’s first black president, would never apologize for being the coach of the championship team.

But though I wondered what could be, I knew, deep down, that it wouldn’t be.  An activist never changes his act.

Obama couldn’t be president for life.  But he’ll never let you forget him.  No matter where you turn, in whatever direction, he’ll be there.

Nikolas Cruz Is the Result of 'It Takes a Village'


February 19, 2018 was the day the Democratic Party publicly declared its War on Youth.  Yes, we know that the Democrats and DMIC (the Democrat Media Industrial Complex) have always preyed upon our children, and yes, we know that the Democrats have infested and infiltrated virtually every industry in America – especially where the youth spend much of their time. 

But it was early last week when the Democrats fired their modern-day Fort Sumter shot.

Does everyone see what the Democrats have done?  They’ve pitted children against us, thereby mainstreaming and normalizing child exploitation.  What the Democrats did to Parkland student Emma Gonzalez was as sickening a display as any I’ve ever witnessed.  They coaxed an understandably distraught child to spew one debunked Democrat lie after another – and, of course, plenty of invective toward President Trump.

The reality is terrifying

David Hogg, a 17-year-old Parkland student, asked on CNN: “If you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, why are you running?”  Normal question from a 17-year-old, right?  Wondering aloud if he came up with that question all on his own, with such emotionally vivid lingual sophistication and political acumen, must make me a grumpy old gun nut who thinks our youth are stupid.

As predictable as Democrat marches featuring hats shaped like vaginal labia, the interviewer, Alysin Camerota, asked Emma and David about the evil National Rifle Association.  The NRA, if you haven’t heard, is responsible for the election of every Republican since Lincoln.  Just kidding – the NRA’s political influence is barely a blip on the multi-gazillion-dollar campaign finance radar.  (Full disclosure: Yes, I am a member of the NRA, and no, I am not paid to defend the NRA.)

Parkland was the result of Democrat social engineering of our kids, not “easy access” to guns and not the NRA.

The reality is terrifying: the Democrat and DMIC predation is going to worsen.  I guarantee it, as the Democratic Party continues its onward “fundamental transformation” toward a full-scale European Union-style socialist party.

It doesn’t take a village

The Clintonian “It Takes a Village” ideology, propagated by the DMIC as parenting and child welfare gospel, is meticulously designed to zombify our children to:

– Hate America and her values

– Worship Big Government

– Become devout disciples of secularism, godlessness, and socialism

– Consider human life disposable

– Believe that “gender” is “fluid” and negotiable

– Whitewash and revise and rewrite history – the way dictators always have

– Make all decisions based on emotions and hysteria – not facts and logic

– Regard the traditional nuclear family as a creation of “white privilege”

– Embrace the new celebrity status of self-victimization

– Tout inequality as the new equality by fervently cheerleading that all men are created equal – but some are created more equal than others

– Walk as dupe-dope sheeple in lockstep with tyranny, easily convinced into believing anything and everything sold by the DMIC as “truth.”

Did the village save Nikolas Cruz?  I’d call Cruz a casualty of the village, but there were actual casualties: 14 students and 3 adults.

The DMIC will do what it always does: lie by withholding, deflect; steer Americans’ attention to the inanimate object of the gun, and gaslight.  The Democrats and DMIC will spend millions of combined man-hours in a broken-record narrative of “assault weapons” and how cold medicine is more difficult for an eighteen-year-old to purchase than a rifle (spoiler alert: it isn’t).

Why are kids so violent?

The Democrats and DMIC will never address the most important question: why are teenagers and young adults committing murder with more regularity than 10, 20, or 30 years ago?  Guns have always been inanimate; the NRA has existed for 53,000 days; Hollywood has produced violent films and television for generations; video games have been pretty bloody for decades (I remember playing “Mortal Kombat” as a 16-year-old); and mental illnesses have always presumably existed, even though medical advances have enabled us to better identify and treat them.

Democrats never address this question because it would nakedly expose their weaponization of our youth as political pawns – the primary cause of the effect of youth violence.  What about the Tessio Republicans?  Well, they’re complicit, too; name me a national GOP figure who persuasively, eloquently, and consistently warns us of Democrat A Clockwork Orange Ludovico-type brainwashing.  You can’t, because not one exists. 

What keeps me up at night is, how many Cruzes are among us?  How many kids who are our neighbors – our children’s friends – are a Cruz?  For a killer like Cruz, the damage was done long ago; it’s easy to blame his foster parents, but we weren’t privy to the dynamic in the household.  Cruz’s foster parents said he never exhibited warning signs, but it’s quite likely that they missed them.

A year ago, as I was writing my upcoming book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child is Becoming a Democrat, I predicted to my wife and others that it was a guarantee that acts of violence perpetrated by youths barely old enough to legally drive would occur.  I didn’t know in what form the atrocities would occur, but I knew they would.  Why?  Because we cannot outrun the tsunami of kids screwed up by the culture of sheer Democrat lunacy.

The Democratic Party and DMIC fetishize comparing Republicans and conservatives to Adolf Hitler, but they never mention this quote of his: “He alone who owns the youth gains the future.”  

If our response isn’t better and smarter offense, the next generation of kids will be even more lost than the current generation.  As General George Patton once remarked, no one ever successfully defended anything – there is only attack, attack, and attack some more.

This moment in our history – right here, right now – is our last, best chance to begin to right the ship.

The Democrats don’t fear repercussions from their declaration of war upon our youths because they don’t fear the GOP and voters.

Republican National Committee, GOP voters, and independents: are you listening? 

Parents and future parents – unite!  More than ever, our children need us.

Does everyone see what the Democrats have done?  They’ve pitted children against us, thereby mainstreaming and normalizing child exploitation.  What the Democrats did to Parkland student Emma Gonzalez was as sickening a display as any I’ve ever witnessed.  They coaxed an understandably distraught child to spew one debunked Democrat lie after another – and, of course, plenty of invective toward President Trump.

The reality is terrifying

David Hogg, a 17-year-old Parkland student, asked on CNN: “If you can’t get elected without taking money from child murderers, why are you running?”  Normal question from a 17-year-old, right?  Wondering aloud if he came up with that question all on his own, with such emotionally vivid lingual sophistication and political acumen, must make me a grumpy old gun nut who thinks our youth are stupid.

As predictable as Democrat marches featuring hats shaped like vaginal labia, the interviewer, Alysin Camerota, asked Emma and David about the evil National Rifle Association.  The NRA, if you haven’t heard, is responsible for the election of every Republican since Lincoln.  Just kidding – the NRA’s political influence is barely a blip on the multi-gazillion-dollar campaign finance radar.  (Full disclosure: Yes, I am a member of the NRA, and no, I am not paid to defend the NRA.)

Parkland was the result of Democrat social engineering of our kids, not “easy access” to guns and not the NRA.

The reality is terrifying: the Democrat and DMIC predation is going to worsen.  I guarantee it, as the Democratic Party continues its onward “fundamental transformation” toward a full-scale European Union-style socialist party.

It doesn’t take a village

The Clintonian “It Takes a Village” ideology, propagated by the DMIC as parenting and child welfare gospel, is meticulously designed to zombify our children to:

– Hate America and her values

– Worship Big Government

– Become devout disciples of secularism, godlessness, and socialism

– Consider human life disposable

– Believe that “gender” is “fluid” and negotiable

– Whitewash and revise and rewrite history – the way dictators always have

– Make all decisions based on emotions and hysteria – not facts and logic

– Regard the traditional nuclear family as a creation of “white privilege”

– Embrace the new celebrity status of self-victimization

– Tout inequality as the new equality by fervently cheerleading that all men are created equal – but some are created more equal than others

– Walk as dupe-dope sheeple in lockstep with tyranny, easily convinced into believing anything and everything sold by the DMIC as “truth.”

Did the village save Nikolas Cruz?  I’d call Cruz a casualty of the village, but there were actual casualties: 14 students and 3 adults.

The DMIC will do what it always does: lie by withholding, deflect; steer Americans’ attention to the inanimate object of the gun, and gaslight.  The Democrats and DMIC will spend millions of combined man-hours in a broken-record narrative of “assault weapons” and how cold medicine is more difficult for an eighteen-year-old to purchase than a rifle (spoiler alert: it isn’t).

Why are kids so violent?

The Democrats and DMIC will never address the most important question: why are teenagers and young adults committing murder with more regularity than 10, 20, or 30 years ago?  Guns have always been inanimate; the NRA has existed for 53,000 days; Hollywood has produced violent films and television for generations; video games have been pretty bloody for decades (I remember playing “Mortal Kombat” as a 16-year-old); and mental illnesses have always presumably existed, even though medical advances have enabled us to better identify and treat them.

Democrats never address this question because it would nakedly expose their weaponization of our youth as political pawns – the primary cause of the effect of youth violence.  What about the Tessio Republicans?  Well, they’re complicit, too; name me a national GOP figure who persuasively, eloquently, and consistently warns us of Democrat A Clockwork Orange Ludovico-type brainwashing.  You can’t, because not one exists. 

What keeps me up at night is, how many Cruzes are among us?  How many kids who are our neighbors – our children’s friends – are a Cruz?  For a killer like Cruz, the damage was done long ago; it’s easy to blame his foster parents, but we weren’t privy to the dynamic in the household.  Cruz’s foster parents said he never exhibited warning signs, but it’s quite likely that they missed them.

A year ago, as I was writing my upcoming book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child is Becoming a Democrat, I predicted to my wife and others that it was a guarantee that acts of violence perpetrated by youths barely old enough to legally drive would occur.  I didn’t know in what form the atrocities would occur, but I knew they would.  Why?  Because we cannot outrun the tsunami of kids screwed up by the culture of sheer Democrat lunacy.

The Democratic Party and DMIC fetishize comparing Republicans and conservatives to Adolf Hitler, but they never mention this quote of his: “He alone who owns the youth gains the future.”  

If our response isn’t better and smarter offense, the next generation of kids will be even more lost than the current generation.  As General George Patton once remarked, no one ever successfully defended anything – there is only attack, attack, and attack some more.

This moment in our history – right here, right now – is our last, best chance to begin to right the ship.

The Democrats don’t fear repercussions from their declaration of war upon our youths because they don’t fear the GOP and voters.

Republican National Committee, GOP voters, and independents: are you listening? 

Parents and future parents – unite!  More than ever, our children need us.

Democrats Helped Create Neo-Nazi Arthur Jones


Arthur Jones, the Nazi congressional candidate in Illinois running as a Republican, isn’t symptomatic of Nazism in the GOP.  He’s the result of decades of a Democrat monopoly in a gerrymandered district that the Republican National Committee spends nary a nanosecond trying to win. 

The IL-3 district’s U.S. representatives have been Democrats for the last 15,700 consecutive, uninterrupted days.  The district is currently represented by Dan Lipinski, who, based on his voting record, is a more moderate Democrat, which explains why he’s being challenged in the Democratic primary by Marie Newman, a gun-grabbing, abortion-obsessed Bernie Sanders fangirl – you know, your typical modern-day Democrat.

The district is arguably unwinnable for Republicans.  Included in the district are parts of Chicago; municipally, Chicago has had only Democrat mayors and 90% Democrat city councils for the last 30,000 consecutive, uninterrupted days.  Jones, a Holocaust-denier, will run unopposed and has run for state and national office numerous times since the 1970s – unsuccessfully in each.  The Illinois Republican Party has unequivocally disavowed Jones and his candidacy.

None of this is the sexy stuff for the Democrats and the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex).  The Feb. 8 interview with Jones and Alysin Camerota, host of CNN’s New Day, was, to say the least, a bizarre stream-of-consciousness rant against Jews in the media and Israel.

Ask yourself: what was the point – what was really the point – of Camerota’s interview? To protect us and our children from the big, bad Nazi?  To alert all of us to that oddly behaved, unfriendly neighbor, who must be a white supremacist who brings his bazooka to the local Aryan Nation book club reading of Mein Kampf?

Of course not.  CNN knows full well that Santa Claus would have a better chance of winning IL-3 than Jones does.  The point of the interview was to serve up a five-course meal (with open bar!) for all the DMIC dupe dope useful idiots who associate Republicanism with the Third Reich.  Jones’s allegiance to Nazism dates back to the 1980s.  The (unintended?) irony of CNN’s interview is that it did more to promote Jones in six minutes than he’s done for himself in thirty combined years.  What qualifies as “news” is malleable and subjectively defined; if the DMIC says something is “news,” then it’s news, damn it!

The DMIC inventing “news” and “importance” is nothing new.  Take, as another example, the Ku Klux Klan: the DMIC has done more to advertise the KKK in the last two years than the organization (which was founded by Democrats) has done for itself combined in its 153 cross-burning years of existence. 

If only the DMIC were as fervent in vetting…oh, I don’t know, say, presidential nominees of the Democratic Party (here’s lookin’ at you, then-U.S. senator Obama and Empress Clinton!) as they are in vetting the fringiest of the fringe candidates (1) who have zero chance to win and (2) whom nobody cares about – except, of course, the inquiring minds of the DMIC audience members, who call anyone who differs with them Nazis but are then shocked to learn that there are people who are actually frighteningly sympathetic to the tyranny of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.  (Quick: Ask the nearest Democrat next to you if he knows that the “Z” in Nazi stands for “socialism.”  No one’s allowed to Google it!)

Democrats impugn with the insult of Nazi! Nazi! Nazi! so frequently that they have watered down to zero the horrors of Nazism.  This is yet another method by which Democrats whitewash, revise, and rewrite history.  They sound like the crazed people in the Twilight Zone episode called “The Monsters Are Due on Maple Street,” where the characters believe that monsters are all around.  (If you don’t know how this episode ends, watch it, and tell me that it isn’t exactly how the DMIC controls its paranoid sheeple.)

The DMIC’s obsession with Jones is bloody, raw red meat for DMIC consumers, who can be convinced into believing anything and everything.  (I encourage everyone to read the comments of DMIC stories about Jones.  They effectually prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Democrats are out for Trump-supporter and GOP blood this year and 2020, like a pack of wolves.)

Sadly, we know there are neo-Nazis in America.  But we also know there are homegrown radicalized Muslim jihadists.  We know there are foreign-born terrorists.  We know there are masked hammer-and-sickle pro-fascists – domestic terrorists whose sole intent is to do what the Democrats do best with opinions counter to theirs: suppress free speech and expression.  (I refuse to call them “Antifa.”)  And we know that Democrats sympathize with radical Islam and pro-fascists.  Talk about dangerous and terrifying.

No, Democrats aren’t responsible for Jones’s abhorrent beliefs.  As he’s always done, he’ll lose and go back to being the nutty guy on the street corner with the frying pan yelling, “The end is near.”

But his guaranteed spot on the ballot has much, much more to do with the virtually impossible task of ousting a Democrat in IL-3.  Now, that’s a story I wish  Alysin Camerota, CNN, and the rest of the DMIC would cover.  We can only hope – although the last time the masses voted for hope, we got eight years of a community-agitating president from (you guessed it) Illinois.

A Phrase to Retire in 2018: 'Mainstream Media'


As President Trump announced his 2017 “Fake News Awards,” phrases and terms popularized over the years, such as “liberal media”; “mainstream media”; and, more recently, “fake news,” were bandied about by those on both the left and the right (especially from that extra-froth frother from the mouth Jim Acosta of CNN). 

With a new political year underway, my sincere hope is that pundits and Americans retire these labels.

The mainstream media?  Most major legacy American media, particularly newspapers and cable television news networks, are Pravda-esque publicists and cover-uppers for the Democratic Party.  As evidenced by how red the 2016 election map was, Democrat policies and politics certainly are not mainstream.

The liberal media? The original American liberals were our heroic Founders; do MSNBC, The Washington Post, and Media Matters for America really conjure up the wisdom and genius of Washington, Jefferson, and Franklin?

A more fitting descriptor is the DMIC: Democrat Media Industrial Complex.  Identifying legacy media as the DMIC puts names and faces to the complex and brands the DMIC as working tirelessly at the behest of the Democratic Party.  It is a complex that runs deep and wide, with tentacles spread across every medium of communications and information flow, from tech Masters of the Universe to print to Hollywood, such as Comcast, The Walt Disney Company, and Viacom, which crafts “news” narratives the same way it crafts screenplays.  (This is the part where Democrats scream, “But Fox News!”)

The DMIC, like the Democrats whom they serve oh, so sycophantically, care rarely for opposing viewpoints. It cares rarely to spend more than a mere few minutes, if any minutes at all, on negative Democrat news stories.  The DMIC, especially the tech Masters of the Universe, are shockingly nonchalant in the glee they take in suppressing speech that runs counter to the Democratic Party’s talking points.

The DMIC’s grip on their fervently devout audience and consumer base is so airtight that I suspect that Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi minister of propaganda, would gushingly marvel at just how effective the DMIC are in mass-controlling their sheeple followers.  As WikiLeaks confirmed for all the world to see in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election, the real colluders and co-conspirators were DMIC organization after organization.  Never forget Rule Number 1 of propaganda: accuse your opponent of what you yourself are guilty of.  (Saul Alinsky, the Lucifer-admiring author of Rules for Radicals, had his own version of this, called “the issue is never the issue.”  No wonder President Obama and Hillary Clinton worshiped Alinsky.)

As I detail in my upcoming book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child is Becoming a Democrat, self-victimization is the new celebrity status.  Has President Trump been, at times, unfair to the DMIC?  Absolutely.  Have the DMIC been unfair to the president?  Duh.  Good parents teach their children that life ain’t always fair, but the unfairness toward the president isn’t what’s alarming; it’s that the DMIC, ever the victimized damsel in distress (or, in the case of The New York Times, the Gray Lady in distress), believe their own press that they’re “objective” and “truth-seekers.”  They embark on a daily crusade, with an evangelical zeal, to take down a legitimately elected president because they’re unhappy with the outcome of the election, and because they know what’s best for America.  Frightening, if you ask me.

The American’s public distrust in once-trusted media companies is irreparable. The DMIC has always been a default, convenient excuse for Republicans after election losses, and too many Republicans still don’t understand that the DMIC are not interested in the noble pursuit of The Truth.

How the DMIC covered the 2016 presidential election should be dissected and made compulsory coursework in journalism schools all across the U.S.  The problem with my suggestion is that esteemed schools of journalism are infested with deans and professors who are grooming the next generation of DMICers.

Had the DMIC done their duties based on the age-old agreed upon journalistic principles of “who, what, when, where, and why,” and had they talked to a diversity of voters who cannot afford forty-dollar vegan lunches, they would have discovered that millions upon millions of President Trump voters supported his candidacy because it was the most effective modern-day remonstrance against the irreparably leftist Democratic Party and the establishment “Et Tu, Brute” Republicans.  This truth about the president’s candidacy was obvious to me.  Perhaps it was also obvious to the DMIC, and they chose to lie by withholding this crucial detail.  The DMIC, clever as they were, knew they could not make even most Hillary Clinton voters like her; rather, they spent countless words and hours trying to make Americans hate and fear and loathe Trump, and they wrapped it up in a bow by predicting a Clinton landslide with over 90% certainty.

Rather than do their job ethically and fairly, however, by asking questions, the DMIC impugned those supporters’ integrity.  They mocked our intelligence and our patriotism.  The DMIC never even made an effort to hide their disdain, likening us to white supremacists who bring our bazookas to the local Aryan Nation book club reading of Mein Kampf.

The reality manufactured by the unethical DMIC, with an unfathomable reliance on anonymous sources, hearsay, feelings, and emotion, is wholly devoid of logic.  The fact that the DMIC are in a perpetual state of self-righteous victimhood  further underscores just how detached they are from this strange place we non-Democrats inhabit called the “real world.”

Is a free press important?  Actually, it’s beyond important.  But the DMIC confuse constitutional importance with its own self-importance and has lost that war with independent-minded Americans.
