I Will Hold My Nose and Vote Trump

Anyone who knows me is aware that I am a firm believer on certain principles that our Constitution protects.  These include the fundamental rights of every person that are given to us by God.  They are not given to us by our government or by any person.  They are enshrined in the Constitution as amended.  The founding fathers had the right idea but we improved on them over time.  However, throughout our history our Constitution has served to protect our individual liberties and our freedom as a nation.

You also know that a large centralized government is antithetical to the rights of people.  As government gets bigger it applies more and more laws and regulations that restrict what we can do, say, buy, and think.  We have ever less individual freedom.  Even the states strive to control us but at least they are closer to the people and thus can be better controlled by the people.

As we get bigger we spend more, tax more and abdicate more and more control to the unelected bureaucrats and corrupt politicians.  Meanwhile, the viability of the US as a nation is put in danger as we reduce the effectiveness of our national defense, our police, and our borders.

The Tea Parties were right.  They had exactly the right ideas about bringing our country back to the limited central government, fiscal responsibility, national defense, and protection of individual rights.  However, we got co-opted by the amoeba called the Republican Party.  Many of saw Cruz as the savior of our values but the  establishment crushed him.  Trump seemed to be closest to what we believed and hopefully he will not disappoint.

But he is also offering some big government solutions to our problems.  He wants to spend tons of money on infrastructure without saying how it will be paid for.  This should be up to the states and private industry.  The feds can help by coordinating projects but it should be up to the states to raise the money and do the work.  Too many of Trumps statements involve having the Federal government leading the way,  Rather, it should get out of the way.

The Tea Parties need to rise again.  They need to assert themselves as a new political party, not just an amorphous and ineffective force.  They need to consolidate their own power in selected states where they can elect their own congress people and legislatures.  They need to divorce themselves from the Republican Party, which is nothing more than Democrat light.  This needs to happen regardless of who wins the Presidency.  Now is the time to begin.

I had hoped that I could vote the Libertarian line but their candidate is a real buffoon and their stance on national defense is a farce.  We need something new.

So I will vote for Trump and hope that he can get elected.  Then I will concentrate my efforts to support a national Tea Party movement that is more like a political party and less like a club.

North Korea claims ballistic capability after fifth – and largest – nuclear test – Hot Air Hot Air

 Now what will Obama do?  NOTHING.

What would I do?  Arrange for a mysterious explosion, roughly the size of a MOAB (Mother of all Bombs) to destroy their nuclear facilities and ICBM facilities.  This could easily be done by a B-2 and plausibly denied.  In addition, I would send an Aegis cruiser off the coast of North Korea and use any missile for target practice.  If they attack the cruiser I would use its cruise missles to destroy every naval base in North Korea as well as every naval ship in the area.  All submarines would be destroyed.  Easy to do for anyone but Obama.

From Hot Air.

A quake last night in North Korea had scientists looking for both their Richter and Geiger instruments, and for good reason. Pyongyang declared their fifth nuclear test a success and not just because it produced their largest yield, a conclusion provisionally shared by other nations in the region and the US. The Kim regime now claims it has mastered the process of designing and building nuclear warheads to fit on ballistic missiles, a step that makes North Korea a major threat to Pacific nations:

North Korea conducts largest nuclear test to date
North Korea conducts a fifth nuclear test, setting off a blast more powerful than the bomb dropped on Hiroshima in World War Two, and drawing strong opposition from global leaders.

Philippines ‘gravely concerned’ about Chinese activity around Scarborough Shoal | IHS Jane’s 360

Once again Obama has shown the US to be a paper tiger.  The Chinese don’t respect us and we have told the Philippines to pound sand.  If China continues to dominate Scarborough Shoal they will control virtually all shipping routes through this area of the world.  There will be no more “international waters”.

This is on the Obama/Kerry watch but it is associated with Clinton’s policies.  If she becomes President the next step will be for China to declare The Philippines part of their sphere.

We suffered a great many casualties liberating them from imperial Japan.  Now we are willing to just turn this fine country over to China?  I have been there many times and I doubt that the Filipinos will agree to this.  But they may have no choice.

Hat top to IHS Jane’s

The Philippines has demanded an explanation from China over what it said was an increasing number of Chinese boats spotted near the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea (SCS), Reuters news agency reported on 4 September.
A Philippine Air Force aircraft that flew over the shoal (known as the Panatag Shoal in the Philippines and Huangyan Island in China) a day earlier had spotted more boats than usual, Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana was quoted as saying.
“There were four Chinese coastguard ships and six other vessels, including blue-coloured barges, around Scarborough Shoal,” Lorenzana reportedly said in a text message sent to reporters. “The presence of many ships other than coastguard in the area is a cause of grave concern,” he added.
China has maintained a continuous presence in the area ever since seizing the shoal after a stand-off in 2012.
Lorenzana also said that Beijing had tried to send dredging barges to the shoal earlier this year, but that there was no sign of any reclamation activity so far.
“We don’t know yet if those barges are precursors of future dredging operations,” he said, adding: “If they try to construct anything in Scarborough it will have a far-reaching adverse effect on the security situation.”
The incident comes after an international tribunal ruled on 12 July that China’s claim to ‘historic rights’ within most of the SCS has no legal basis: a decision that has angered China and sparked fears Beijing may accelerate its effort to establish de facto control over the disputed area through land reclamation and military deployments.
The Permanent Court of Arbitration (PCA) in The Hague, a tribunal under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS), decided on a case brought by the Philippines that argued Chinese activity in the region violated international law

Obama Dissed Again – Iranian Boats Harass Another U.S. Navy Patrol Coastal Ship #Firebolt

In the past week”

China dissed Obama.

Philippines dissed Obama.

Korea dissed the US.

Now Iran does it again.

This was more than just harassment.  It was intended to show that the US has no balls.  The USS Firebold is a well armed vessel with enough firepower to blow those Iranian boats out of the water.  It didn’t even fire a warning shot at the Iranina boats that maneuvered directly in the course of the Firebolt.

Now China is emboldened, Korea is emboldened, and Iran is emboldened.  Philippines is pissed at the very time they are needed as a strategic partner against China.  In one week the Obama/Clinton/Kerry foreign policy drives off a cliff.  T\\

Trump needs to take advantage if this.  He needs to make a major correction once he gets in office.  Killary will just continue to set the reset, even after one of those players decides to hit the red button.

Iranian Boats Harass Another U.S. Navy Patrol Coastal Ship In Persian Gulf

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
A U.S. Navy patrol coastal ship was harassed by seven Iranian vessels on Sunday and narrowly avoided colliding with one, in the latest in a string of incidents in the Persian Gulf.
Seven Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Navy (IRGCN) fast in-shore attack craft (FIAC) approached USS Firebolt (PC-10) while it was operating in international waters in the central Persian Gulf on Sept. 4, a defense official told USNI News.
Three of the FIACs maneuvered close to Firebolt, mirroring the ship’s course and speed at a distance of about 500 yards for about eight minutes before leaving. Another FIAC then sped towards Firebolt and stopped directly in front of the ship, causing the Firebolt crew to maneuver to avoid a collision. The U.S. ship and Iranian FIAC came within 100 yards of one another, the defense official said.
During the incident, the Firebolt crew attempted radio communication three times to understand the Iranians’ intentions, but the FIAC crews never res

Rutgers: to avoid microaggressions, only speak when ‘necessary’

Students in at least one Rutgers University residence hall are being encouraged to use only language that is “helpful” and “necessary” to avoid committing microaggressions. The display, which is part of the school’s “Language Matters” campaign, also includes hand-written definitions of the three types of microaggressions, as well as a flyer listing potentially-offensive words and phrases.

Students in at least one Rutgers University residence hall are being encouraged to use only language that is “helpful” and “necessary” to avoid committing microaggressions.
The display, photos of which were obtained by Campus Reform, is titled “Language Matters: Think,” and was placed in the College Avenue Apartments by a resident assistant, according to a current resident of the building who does not wish to be identified.

Victims of microaggressions are “more at risk for illness & decreased immune system.”

Rutgers: No such thing as ‘free’ speech

And my tax dollars are going to fund this?  They have forgotten that Rutgers is a public university.  It is owned by the taxpayers of New Jersey.  It has an open, urban campus.  Who are they to tell me that I don’t have free speech while walking through the campus in downtown New Brunswick?

They way to avoid offending anyone.  If I wish to speak out agains Islamic extremism, it is offensive.  If I wish to speak out against Israeli settlements, it is not.  Experience has told me that Rutgers is very biased in its fight against bias.  Ok to denounce the klan, but not OK to denounce black lives matter.  OK to denounce Jews but not ok to denounce muslims.  OK to denounce conservatives but not ok to denounce liberals.  OK to denounce Trump, but not Clinton.

If you want to see how the thought police work this is where you need to go.

I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to leave this wretched state.

If Clinton is elected she will undoubtedly do this for the entire country.  First she rounds up the Tea Party, then everyone else.

The declaration comes on the university’s page for its Bias Prevention and Education Committee. Bias acts are “[v]erbal, written, physical, psychological acts that threaten or harm a person or group” on the basis of race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

“There is no such thing as ‘free’ speech,” according to Rutgers University.
The apparent denial of free speech is part of the public university’s effort to combat student bias on campus. The university’s Bias Prevention and Education Committee lists five ways for students to avoid committing “bias incidents.” Tops on the list is the command that students “Think Before [They] Speak.”

“All speech has a cost and consequences.”

To clarify what this means, the university warns students that “[t]here is no such thing as ‘free’ speech.” However, The university’s student code of conduct contains zero references to “free speech” or “freedom of speech.”
“All speech,” the university continues, “has a cost and consequences.”
The university defines “bias acts” as “[v]erbal, written, physical, psychological acts that threaten or harm a person or group on the basis of race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orienta

Let’s Get HIllary and Trump to take physicals & make results public prior to 3rd debate

I bet Trump agrees to it.  Hillary won’t, proving her unworthiness to be POTUS.  The exams could be done by a neutral third party, perhaps a military medical officer at Walter Reed or Bethesda.

This should become a precedent for future elections.  Jill Stein and Gary Johnson should also be subjected to this.

DNC: #Trump is within spitting distance

Not what the TV Democratic shills are saying.  Look what was in my inbox this morning from the DNC:

 

Friend — I just got a report on our grassroots fundraising goal of 60,000 donations by last Thursday night. It looks like we came up a little short. That means we need to use the final few days of this month to get back on track — and fast. This is the first time we’ve come in under our projection, and it couldn’t have happened at a more critical moment. We had a great month in July thanks to the thousands of Democrats who stepped up to support our party — thank you so much for all you’re doing. But Donald Trump and the GOP still came within spitting distance of us. If we fall behind again, this could be the first month of this campaign when they outraise us. That is not where I want to be going into September. Help make sure we can keep our fundraising advantage going — it’s so important right now. Pitch in $3 or more.

Instead I suggest you give to the Trump or Johnson campaigns.

“Flashback Friday”: Trump raises ante on Hillary attacks on “racism” with 2008 campaign reminders

posted at 10:01 am on August 26, 2016 by Ed Morrissey

 

A day after Hillary Clinton attacked Donald Trump for “pushing discredited conspiracy theories with racist undertones,” the Republican nominee has struck back — largely with Hillary’s own words. A new video on Trump’s Instagram pulls together some lowlights from the 2008 campaign that prompted criticism of Team Hillary’s alleged racist undertones at the time. Team Trump is calling this “Flashback Friday.”
Trump doesn’t limit the flashback to 2008, either:

Politico picked up on the release this morning, and notes that Trump isn’t backing down after a predictable and hoary Democratic line of attack:
Hillary Clinton’s eight-year-old comments during a raw and contentious primary with Barack Obama are providing even more fodder for Donald Trump and his campaign, doubling down on charges of racism and bigotry against the Democratic nominee that Trump has leveled this week on the trail.
A video posted to the campaign’s Instagram account early Friday begins with the ubiquitous “Crooked Hillary” name over footage of then-Sen. Clinton sitting down with NBC’s Tim Russert on “Meet the Press” in January 2008, who reads the candidate the headline of a South Carolina newspaper: “Clinton Camp Hits Obama: Attacks ‘painful for black voters,’” with the sub-headline “Many in state offended by criticism of Obama and remarks about Martin Luther King.” …
Months later, Clinton told USA Today that she had a larger coalition than Obama, citing an Associated Press article that she said “found how Senator Obama’s support among working, hard-working Americans, white Americans, is weakening…”
The video featured a snip
