Trump & Our Future — Optimistic or Pessimistic

Although Trump won the election (as believed by most people), the question now is, will he do even half of what he has promised?  And he’s promised a LOT!

Yesterday I talked to an attorney at the NRA regarding ‘gun free zones’ and what we can do to help alleviate the potential danger.  I was surprised to hear that they weren’t really interested in my idea of creating a special concealed carry license.  Instead their plan is to eliminate those zones all together!  Wow!  And, they believe they have the support of Trump.  What a rosy picture of our future!

The real question is, will things turn around and will we all live happily ever after?  Hmmm..?  I guess that question means we have to look at our current situation with a realistic and/or objective view.

Please read the following article and consider the 11 realities that the author presents.  It would seem to me that they are real and must be faced…  some day?!

I guess one could look at this as a glass half full or empty.?  How successful do you see Trump and our congress (with a 10% approval rating) over the next four years?

 

 


 

Why Move to Texas?

We’ve been asked numerous times why we moved to Texas.  My answer is simple.  I can name that tune in two notes:  California, Texas.

If you look at California (where we moved from), you’ll find a hard left mentality which leads to numerous laws which protect the guilty — not the innocent.  Illegal aliens in California are basically ‘hands off’.

As recent as last week the chief of police for Los Angeles stated publicly that he would not enforce any laws pertaining to immigration.  Although he is not part of the federal immigration system, he is required to report anyone suspected of a crime to ICE.  San Francisco is clearly a sanctuary city.  Concurrently the state is releasing tens of thousands of felons back into society to commit yet more crimes against society.

Here’s just a little evidence of the insanity occurring on a daily basis in California.  Focus on proposition 57 which redefines ‘violent crimes’ — especially the supporters and opposition at the bottom of the page.

Here in Texas there are four cities which are basically venues similar to California as a whole (maybe I meant ‘hole’?).  Austin, Dallas, Houston, and San Antonio are way left compared the the other 70% of the state.  Where we’re fortunate (for the time being), we have a Governor, Lt. Governor, and Attorney General with right thinking brains.  As a result, this state is moving further toward being the best state to live in this country.

Please read the following article regarding the priorities in our next session of Texas congress.  Only in Texas folks.

Texas 2017 Legislative Priorities

So, it should be rather clear at this point why a ‘good old boy’ from communist central would move to Texas..?!


Syrian Refugees & Border Control

There has been a great deal of controversy regarding the two subjects in this article for several months.  We’ve seen Europe implode under the weight of criminal activity and harassment of women throughout that region.  Now we potentially face the same here in our not too distant future.

The following article describes these issues in plain talk addressing the matter in an objective way — regardless of what emotional energy is involved in the topic.  If you read this article you may learn some things about how this country has been marching toward a ‘lowering of our standards’ for numerous years!  As planned.

Who We Are As a People

 

How about that commentary regarding the ‘Immigration Act of 1965’?  And people think that we got here by accident..!?  It’s all in the plan folks.

 

 


 

Arrogance — It’ll Get You Every Time

What with busing in people to vote, getting ex-cons to vote, rigging voting machines, etc., I can see why someone might think that an election is a ‘sure bet’.

OK, so your self-inflated ego lets you believe you’re a super star.  That is understandable, even if it isn’t true.  But when you have big time media believing it, that’s a different story!

Read the following article describing an ‘oops’ by Newsweek that cost them not only money, but public character (I’m sure).

Now that shouldn’t come as a surprise!!?

 

 


 

Trump’s Stance On 2nd Amendment

Many have said that Trump speaks in far too vague a language and it is unclear what he ‘really means’.  Well, it would appear, that is coming to an end.  Read the following on his views regarding guns in this country.

Trump Releases His Plan for 2nd Amendment

One common criticism of billionaire businessman and President-elect Donald Trump is that he far too often speaks in vague generalities and rarely offers specifics about where he stands on the issues.  That is no longer the case, at least regarding his stance on gun rights and the Second Amendment, after Trump released his official policy position on his campaign website.

The Second Amendment to our Constitution is clear. The right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed upon.  Period”, the position paper began.  Trump went on to explain that the right to keep and bear arms is a right that pre-exists both the government and the Constitution, noting that government didn’t create the right, nor can it take it away.  He also rightly denoted the Second Amendment as “America’s first freedom,” pointing out that it helps protect all of the other rights we hold dear.

In order to protect and defend that right, Trump proposed tougher enforcement of laws that are already on the books, rather than adding new gun control laws.  Citing a successful program in Richmond, Virginia, that sentenced gun criminals to mandatory minimum five-year sentences in federal prison, Trump noted that crime rates will fall dramatically when criminals are taken off the streets for lengthy periods of time.  Trump also proposed strengthening and expanding laws allowing law-abiding gun owners to defend themselves from criminals using their own guns, without fear of repercussion from the government.

Noting that many of the recent high-profile shooters had clear mental problems that should have been addressed, Trump proposed fixing our nation’s broken mental health system by increasing treatment opportunities for the non-violent mentally ill, but removing from the streets those people who pose a danger to themselves and others.

Trump would do away with pointless and ineffective gun and magazine bans and suggested fixing the current background check system already in place, rather than expanding a broken system.  Furthermore, Trump proposed a national right to carry, a national concealed carry reciprocity law that would compel states to recognize the concealed carry permits of any other state, exactly as drivers licenses from anywhere are accepted by all states today.

Finally, Trump would lift the prohibition on military members carrying weapons on military bases and in recruiting centers, allowing trained military members to carry weapons to protect themselves from attacks by terrorists, criminals and the mentally unstable, as we have seen recently.

Trump’s bold and fearless defense of the Second Amendment earned him the coveted endorsement of the National Rifle Association. His warning that Hillary Clinton wanted to “abolish the Second Amendment” sounded the alarm to millions of Constitution-loving patriots who wanted their rights protected.

Those who cherish our right to keep and bear arms should be pleased by Trump’s stated position on the Second Amendment.  Of course, liberal anti-gunners will hate this and will do whatever they can to be obstructionists to rid our country of the 2nd amendment.

Opportunities for Mr. Trump

Whew!!!  We dodged a bullet.!  Eight years of communist leadership is more than enough!!  Imagine what another eight would do!?

So now that Donald is our newly elected leader, it would seem that he has numerous opportunities to excel!  How you ask?  Here are just a few that popped into my head in the last day.

  1. Refugee Immigration:  He said that we would put the brakes on this idea pronto.  Let’s hope he does before it is too late.  Here in Texas we’re trying to push back against the out of control federal nemesis.  The fed wields a lot of power!  Here’s an article on what our Texas leaders have tried.  If this subject goes on unchecked, we could face disastrous consequences.
  2. Hillary’s Criminal activity:  Trump stated that he would create a special commission to address the injustice regarding her actions.  To follow through on this thought would accomplish a great deal if handled ‘honestly’.  If evidence were presented, she were to be convicted in a court of law, and sentenced fairly, it would send a LOUD message to the people of this country that in fact there is ‘equal justice under the law’ in the United States.  Which is long overdue!
  3. Unemployment in the U.S.:  In 1993, under then president Clinton, he chose to change the formula for calculating the unemployment numbers for America.  This is why we are now facing the ‘BS’ numbers we are told daily today by our Pravda driven media.  If Mr. Trump were the man of bravado that he tries to depict, he would address this travesty.  He could declare (by executive order) that the formula for this calculation would be set back to the 1993 status.  He then could accept that the now 9.5% unemployment number is his responsibility.  By using that number as a ‘true’ measure, he could attack the problem and demonstrate his true ability to ‘make a difference’.  If we stuck with the current 4.9% and he reduced unemployment 30%, it would then only change to 3.4%.  But if he used the realistic number of 9.5% it would then be 6.6% — a much greater ‘looking‘ improvement.

My point is that although he faces significant challenges, he has the opportunity to be one of the greatest presidents in the history of this country.  After all, he has been preceded by the worst president this country has seen.  He faces an uphill climb, but has the chance to catch the brass ring of the Whitehouse.


White-lash — A Concept Only a Communist Would Consider

You’ve heard it all of your life — “If you’ve done nothing wrong, you have nothing to worry about.”  Well apparently Mr. Van Jones has never heard of that concept.  But what he has demonstrated over and over is his ability to make everything about race.  He and his minions including his leader Obama want to make things about race — everything.  Why?  Because it divides people.  Why divide people?  Because he is part of the evil force trying to overthrow this country — to ‘fundamentally transform it’.  Transform into what?  A communist state where a minor few wield all of the power and have all of the money.

Although our election is over, the hate speech and anti-American rhetoric is not.  The evil progressive movement in this country will not give up.  Because we threw out the criminal in chief wannabe, it does not mean that the battle has ended.  It means that it has now gone from a clandestine effort to an all out war on America.  I predict that we will hear this sort of speech for years to come.  But we need to remain vigilant and strong against the evil that is trying to destroy us.

Listen to him tell of the ‘fear’ that exists in this country.  You’d think we were headed back to the 50’s with future race riots..?  In brief, BS!!
