New Republican Political Attacks Begin

Republicans hate women (seeking the woman vote perhaps?)
Republicans are racist (seeking the black and Hispanic vote perhaps?)
And what is all this bullshit about “old white men?” running everything? What are these leftists thinking (I know what they are thinking)? I cannot believe and do not believe that most Americans believe this horse shit.

This is all such obvious nonsense, but it was the focus of their talking points all weekend. They all spew the same phrases. I guess they wake up in the morning to a compiled list of talking point attacks in their morning email. Wake up America, the wolves are at the door!

Nikki Haley Resigns as US Ambassador to UN

On Tuesday Nikki Haley tendered her resignation as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, fortunately she will stay on until year’s end. She is a great American patriot and her work, her devotion and, for lack of a better phrase, her balls, will be missed in dealing with the United Nations’ members.

Oh wait, how did she get that position? Republicans hate women, remember? According to the morons on the left anyway…

Kick ’em

You cannot be civil to a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about….” Hillary Clinton 10/10/18

Eric Holder, former attorney general (perhaps keying up a presidential run in 2020):

Michelle Obama said “when they go low, we go high.” No, says Mr. Holder, “when they go low, we kick them.”

Huh??? Is that not exactly what the left is now doing and hopes to continue doing to conservatives?

And exactly what is it that they care about? What is it conservatives wish to destroy? I will make a few suggestions and you can draw your own conclusion:

  • Higher taxes on business and individuals? absolutely disagree
  • Open borders? absolutely disagree
  • Socialism versus capitalism? absolutely disagree

Just a few, but they should be enough to shed light on the direction in which they wish to take our country.


Infrastructure X (Keystone & Dakota pipelines) Regulation Reform XX 1 in 2 out
Individual Tax Reform XX Entitlement Reform
Business Tax Reform XX Education Reform X
Healthcare Reform Veterans Administration Reform X
Rebuild our Military X Trade Reform X
Secure our Borders (The Wall) XX Lead the world from the front XX
Help for the poor XX Drain the swamp X as we speak
Peace through unmatchable strength Support Israel X
Destroy ISIS XX Extreme Vetting XX
Conservative Supreme Court nominees XX American Jobs XX

I will track these campaign promises and will check them off as each is accomplished adding those I have missed as they become apparent. This is quite an agenda and will be difficult to achieve all in one term, but I believe the American people are behind him and know these things need to be done. Now, if he can get our legislators to support him instead of fighting him….


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.”
