Supreme Court Nominee Brett Kavanaugh

President Trump chooses Brett Kavanaugh to fill the Supreme Court seat being vacated by Mr. Kennedy. Of course, the left has wet their panties about this and will fight tooth and nail to block the nomination. In the end, they will lose…again.

What they cannot seem to understand is that the Judicial branch of government was founded to be NON-POLITICAL, yet they have politicized the courts and every other government agency they can get control of. It is bullshit once again. The courts are to interpret and enforce the law as written, the political leanings of a judge should not have any bearing whatsoever on the interpretation of law. A constructionist judge is just what is needed on the Supreme Court.

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent.

Have a great weekend…. God bless America!

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.

If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.

By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.


In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
