Debate #1 – August 2015

debateDebates. Why the do we even care about them outside of the Democrat vs. Republican context? I find that it’s just a chance for “like-minded” presidential hopefuls to bicker amongst each other for two hours and not say a damn thing. Thursday night was no exception.

We started off with the FOX moderators asking the candidates if they would run third party if they didn’t get the nomination. This was telling in how the stage would be set for the debate. A blatant attempt to Donald Trump and make him look like a fool, and of course Trump fell for it. Now, I’m no fan of Trump, I think he’s a blow hard, egotistical ass hat. That being said, I am extremely disappointed in FOX News attacking him the way they did. Megyn Kelly, especially, was a bit of a bitch. They handled themselves very poorly and it was apparent they went into the debate holding a grudge against Trump.

Trump gave straight, confident answers, sort of. He only told us what most of us want to hear, and his answers were very arrogant. Basically, “I’m super rich [which isn’t a problem in my book], everyone loves me [not really] and I did some shady shit with the system to get ahead in business [true].” He got a few jabs in on the others, as well as Rosie O’Donnell, but all in all he did pretty poorly.

Jeb Bush. Just, fuck no. Set aside the fact we do not need a dynasty when it comes to presidents. I mean I liked Dubya, sometimes, but there were a lot of things that I did not like about him. His brother Jeb is one in the same. He’s pro-open borders, pro-common core, his wife can barely speak english [I’ve been told], he’s a RINO, a wolf in sheep’s clothing and of course a Bush. Need I say more.

Chris Christie is another creature all together. New Jersey governor, RINO, hugger of Obama. It’s fair to say that he and Jeb are pretty much the farthest left of those in the debate. I honestly can’t remember all he said because I can’t stand the guy. He did get into it with Rand Paul over NSA spying. Long story short, Christie is all for it.

I used to like Rubio, and I will say that he probably has views that match a lot of my own. But come on. Even he basically wants amnesty. He was probably the most Presidential of all the guys though. Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but didn’t he get elected riding on the shoulders of the Tea Party and then basically thank them by somewhat jumping ship on some major conservative issues? I don’t know. I just don’t really like him anymore.

Governor Kasich seems like a beady eyed little kook. He loves big government and Obamacare apparently. The only reason he got the response he did when answering questions was because he had home field advantage.

Huckabee just won’t be President, plain and simple. Sorry Huckster.

Ben Carson did surprisingly well, I thought. He needs to work on his facts though. As I was talking to my brother afterwards and he pointed out that the USAF was formed in 1947, not 1940. Admittedly a small mistake, but it’s something that will be used against him in the future, especially from the Democrats that aim for the jugular.

Rand Paul got absolutely no time . I think he got a total of 5 minutes and some change total for the two hour debate. I think FOX News thinks he is a truther, an evil libertarian, he wants to legalize all the drugs, and he’s a hippie who is just a threat to the Republican establishment.

Scott Walker? Meh. He seems to be a pretty staunch conservative, in my opinion. Dealing with all the union bullshit in Wisconsin. I believe he is a man of his word and has more integrity than other established douchebag Republicans. Still not sure he will make it far in the nomination process though.

Ted Cruz? He’s my homeboy. From calling Mitch McConnell a liar on the Senate floor to reading ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ as a filibuster. [Side-note, best Dr. Seuss book period.] [Side-side-note, that was not a Megyn Kelly period joke.] Anyway, I may be a bit biased towards this shining example of a human being, but I think he gave the some of the best answers. Unfortunately, I still don’t know if he would be a good Republican nominee at this time.

I missed the pre-debate debate, but heard Carly Fiorina utterly killed it. Hopefully she will make it to the main debate next time. I am really hopeful that we will see the dream team of a Trump/Bush ticket and have another four to eight years of Democrat rule.

American Insurgency

“Periodic revolution, ‘at least once every 20 years,’ was ‘a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.’” Thomas Jefferson.

America was founded on insurgency, as we all know, and according to this quote, we are long overdue for a new revolution.  Now I’m not talking insurgency like what’s going in the Middle East.  Palestinian “freedom fighters” are nothing more than terrorists and thugs whose goal is to eradicate a race of people off the face of the earth.  I’m talking about a revolution to take back the freedom that the government has taken away from us in the last 60 years.

Thomas Jefferson, as well as the rest of the founding fathers, knew that a government would long to have more and more control of everyone and everything they can get their grubby little hands on.  To borrow quote from Stan Lee ,”with great power comes great responsibility.”  The problem we have is that the government wants an ever-growing power with the benefit of passing the responsibility to someone else, i.e. tax the rich.  We need to have a revolution in this country and force those in our government to listen to us again.  I’m not suggesting taking up arms.  Yet.

We have a responsibility to our family, friends, and neighbors to make sure we elect the right representatives into office, representatives who will then make the needed decisions to help this country thrive.  This starts not with the president, but closer to home.  The most important campaigns are run in our own backyards and a lot of us don’t pay any attention to them.  I would find it hard to believe that any of us know every elected official in our local city hall.  How about in the county we live in.  For some reason our only focus is what’s happening, a little bit  at the state level, but mainly at the national level.

We need to change this.  I am calling for a peaceful revolution.  We need to work together to take control of our city, then our county.  Then we’ll be able to take control of our state, then even our country.  The progressives had the right idea with the 100 year plan.  If we plan on changing the nation for the better we need to copy some plays out of their playbook and come up with some new ones on our own.  New plays like going out to urban areas, and showing them the true nature of the democrat party, and how it is not the party of the people.  I heard somewhere that there were individuals ready and willing to go out to jewish, latino, and black communities to try to drive support for Mitt Romney a few months back.  The Romney campaign turned their offers down.  What?  This really needs to change.  I’m looking at you GOP.

Another step we need to take is taking back the education system from leftist union control.  We do have awesome teachers out their who are pushed aside by some of the worst teachers around, just because they have been a teacher longer.  Teachers should be held to some kind of standards, and the current, as long as they don’t kill a student, mentality is getting us nowhere.  Parents need to be involved in the educating of our children.  We need to instill our children with righteous morals, a good work ethic, and respect of their fellow-man.  We need to teach them the truth about American history, the good and the bad, and show them how when we did something wrong this is how we fixed it.

We allow liberal public school teachers to mold the minds of the children, under the guise of education, as they basically babysit our children.  Even if we can’t be there to educate our children in person, we should be at a minimum asking children what they learned in school today and have discussions on those subjects pointing out the blurring of any facts.  I don’t have children yet, and before you say that disqualifies me from giving out my “words of wisdom,” everything I’m saying is just plain common sense and I wish this was some of the interaction I had with my parents around the dinner table.

These are a few of the first steps I believe we need to accomplish to win back this nation.  It may end up being a slow process, but a slow process got us here in the first place.

Creepy Voting Ad Finally Gets Parody

I am still at a loss for words on the ‘My First Time’ video.  You know, the video that the Obama campaign created that creepily compares voting to losing your virginity.  Seriously, give it a look if you don’t believe me.


Okay, see creepy as all get out.  Also I feel kind of dirty after watching this.  It’s almost an NSFW type of video, where you don’t want someone to know your watching it.  The only entertainment I got out of this was reading the twitter feeds that were responding to this outlandish display of tomfoolery.

 

Then yesterday Steven Crowder, a conservative comedian, came out with this parody of the Obama Ad.

I don’t feel so bad anymore.  Thanks Steven.

Was That A Hate Crime? Nope.

As I was reading TheBlaze on the latest developments on the story about Sharmeka Moffitt, a black woman from Louisiana who was attacked, by three white men, in an apparent racially motivated attack, something seemed a little odd to me.  I’m not sure how to describe it, but I had a feeling something was fishy about her story, deep down it seemed that the whole incident was made up.  Being the type of person who doesn’t rush to judgement on anything, I hesitated to tell friends and family about my opinion on the matter.   I mean, who wants to be the person to accuse someone of making up a horrific story like this, only to look like a douche-bag when proven wrong.  So I suspended my judgement, and waited for more facts, unlike the MSM.

And more facts came indeed.  Not to long after the story broke, maybe the next day or two, the police had wrapped up their investigation.  Turns out she did make the story up.  She wrote KKK and a racial slur on her car, then set herself on fire.  What was she trying to prove?  Maybe she was trying to commit suicide and make it look like an assault, maybe she was seeking the attention of friends and family, or maybe she is just someone who hates whites and will do anything to make them look like racists.  I don’t know.

Later, I was thinking to myself and came to a realization.  This wasn’t the first time that someone had self-inflicted injuries, then blamed another group of people in an attempt to demonize them or their belief’s, in an attempt to hide something.

I decided to do a little research and found, as I had originally surmised, this has happened many times in the last couple years.  It seems that a lot of the report are from people who injure themselves doing something moronic, such as attempting a backflip while intoxicated.  However there seems to be a more sinister plot afoot.  Some of these falsely reported hate crimes seem to have been done to draw attention to some sort of political ideology.  Namely this so false notion of homophobia, that is “rampant” in America. n n

Back in May there was a lesbian couple, whom had “kill the gays” tagged on their home, the next day they found a noose hanging on their front door handle.  After an investigation it turned out they spray painted the message onto the house, and reported the “crime.”  According to the Huffington Post:

Aimee Whitchurch, 37 and Christel Conklin, 29, reported in October of 2011 that the words “Kill the Gay” were spray-painted in red on their Parker condominium’s garage door. The next day police were called back to the house after the women claimed someone hung a noose on their front door handle.

But after working on the case with the FBI because of the hate crime element to the incidents, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office has determined that the incidents were false

There was Charlie Rogers, a small business owner, who is openly lesbian, she reported being attacked in her home by three masked men.  According to Journal Star in a turn of events, an arrest warrant was issued for Ms. Roger’s

An arrest warrant for Charlie Rogers was issued after investigators say they found no sign of a struggle in the living room where the 33-year-old claimed she was attacked. She has since been released on a personal recognizance bond after a brief court appearance, the publication notes.

“There was no apparent blood on the bedspread; even though Ms. Rogers reported she was rolled on to her stomach after she had been cut on her arms, abdomen, chest and front of her legs while being held down,” the warrant stated, according to theJournal Star.

Turned out she carved gay slurs into her body, and spray painted gay slurs throughout her own apartment.

In another case, this time based on religion, you have Zachary Tennen, a 19-year-old sophomore at Michigan State University, that claimed he was beaten up by neo-nazis while leaving a party, because he was Jewish.  This, like the others, gained national attention. However, about 50 witnesses reported that there were no neo-nazis at the party, what they remember was a drunk student aggressively hitting on women until, as he groped one of them, a male friend punched Tennen in the face.

I’m not sure why these individuals are reporting the phony hate crimes, I’m sure false reporting of crimes in general happens a lot, but these seem to be targeted attacks, mainly, aimed at conservatives, whites, or Christians, in my opinion.  Is it possible that the left is stooping to a new low.  Maybe, however, these are just about as despicable as the occupy protestors telling their people not to report the rapes that were happening within their movement.

I know that there are real hate crimes that happen in this country, and around the world, but nowadays it seems like anytime a victim is black, gay, muslim, etc., the incident is always called a hate crime.  Even if these factors had nothing to do with that particular incident.  Hopefully we can change this, because the majority of Americans, no matter their race, sex, or religion, are do not hate anyone.  We do deserve the ability to defend our positions and belief’s without having insults hurled at us.

This could be a problem in the future for people who are truly victims of hate crimes.  Think the boy who cried wolf.

The Second Presidential Debate Is Over… Who Won?

The debate getting a little heated.

Tonight I was a little behind on the debate.  Story of my life it seems.  The first debate I was on a fishing trip and forgot to record it.  I had to work on my house and ended up missing the VP debate, luckily I recorded that one.  Tonight, however, I was invited to a debate party and got there late.  It seems anytime I want to watch a presidential debate live something comes up and I have to rely on my DVR, or in this case a friends DVR.  Luckily I have great friend, they paused the debate before it started and waited for me and my family to show.  So I was only like twenty minutes behind.

Now like I said I missed the first debate, and I still haven’t seen it, but from what I’ve read and seen in the news, it was no contest.  So, in the back of my mind, I kind of hoped that this debate would be the same, although I knew it wouldn’t be.  There were a lot of questions I think should have been brought up but weren’t, i.e. the Muslim Brotherhood members being invited to the White House, Muslim Brotherhood infiltration in our government, and Obama avoiding Netanyahu like the plague.

I was impressed by most of Romney’s answers, though two minutes seems like a lot of time to give someone to answer simple questions, just my opinion.  I say give a short well thought out answer and let Obama take up the rest of the time defending his ineptitude. By the second or third question I was tired of hearing Romney talk.  Not because he wasn’t giving good answers, it just drug on and on.  Obama was no different I need to add.  He spent a lot of his time calling Romney a liar, two to three minutes at a time.

Romney did a very good job of keeping Obama on his toes the whole time.  He brought up broken promises and his failures as president.  Governor Romney answered pretty well on issues such as immigration reform, energy independence, the second amendment, and especially the last question about, basically, debunking misrepresentations of his character.  That last one was one of his better answers.  However, on a few of the questions, it seemed like he kind of walked around it and gave an answer that didn’t really address the actual question.  For example, when asked what he would do with the illegal aliens that are hard-working, he just talked about immigration reform and was basically asked a second time to answer the actual question, which he then did very well.  All in all I would say he had a solid debate overall though.

Obama on the other hand was more like a… a bratty kid?  Maybe a little more Biden-esque in the fact he was definitely more aggressive and interruptive.  At one point he almost seemed pissed, you could see it in his face.  The “altitude” really didn’t seem to affect him as much this time.  I would have to say he did pretty well in his overall response to questions and staying engaged.  Though he never seemed to answer any questions directly.  It seemed that every answer was “Romney is a liar and here is why,” followed by an explanation that based in liberal talking points, it was just the same Obama talking points over and over again.  He must have been studying those non-stop the past two weeks.  I can hear Michelle now. “No intelligence meetings until you memorize those talking points backwards and forwards, and eat those brussel sprouts, now!”  There’s not much else to say about his performance, just redistribution and republicans are evil.

All in all I will say it was a little hard for me to determine a winner of the debate.  Even though they both did fairly well.  If I had to put money on it, I would say that Romney won by a slim to medium margin.  However, according to FOX News, out of their focus groups Romney was definitely the winner by far.  I don’t know, but if that is accurate with the undecided voters, then I say hallelujah!

One other thing I wanted to bring up was the moderator, Candy Crowley.  I think she was probably the best moderator this year, however I would say she was definitely trying to help Obama a couple of times.  Not surprising the MSM will always do that.  No matter how much they try to hide it just can’t portray a balanced, unbiased image.  I just hope that this debate was enough to help boost Romney toward a sustainable lead.

In case you missed it here is the debate in its entirety.

Adios

I will not be on the internets for a week or so, so no news or opinion for a while.  Sorry.  But to hold you over, I have here a video that should be proof enough that Obama isn’t presidential material.  Also he lies.  And he is a stupid face, and his pants are on fire.

Government Won’t Sell Shares Back To GM

After years of being labeled Government Motors, General Motors wants to take control of their company again.  They believe that the government ownership is giving GM a bad image.  Sounds nice, if I were them I would not want the government having the controlling stock of my company either.  I also would not have sold it to the government in the first place, but I guess hindsight’s 20/20.

The Treasury Department responded by basically saying, to bad.  Apparently, the Treasury Department is afraid that selling the shares back to GM would cost the government billions of dollars.  Yes, losing Americans money is bad, however, let’s look at this in a different way.  If the government loses billions of dollars in the failed experiment that was the auto bailout, then it will look very bad for Obama and his re-election.  Let’s not forget that Obama and Biden have been talking up GM as a success.

This is exactly what EVERYONE has said from the beginning.  If you give your company to the government, they won’t give it back.  We are heading into some dark times and the more we give the government, either voluntarily or other wise, the more it will be used against us.  Failing companies need to fail, the government needs to get out of everyone’s business, and we need to take back our freedom.

Embassy Burned, Americans Dead…

US embassy burning in Libya

Egypt and Libya, two places are care nothing about anymore.  Well, I never cared about them before really, but Egypt has the pyramids at least.  Yesterday, they committed a crime, that in reality, is an act of war, I believe.

Muslim Brotherhood backed mobs jumped the fences to the American embassies in these two countries, and attacked them.  In Libya, they assassinated the U.S. Ambassador and murdered 3 other Americans.  Why?  The media will have you believe that it is due to a video on ‘YouTube’, in which some group is portraying their prophet in a negative way.  Seriously?  Tell me why it is okay for you to make videos about how it’s okay to kill Christians and Jews, but if someone makes fun or your religion, they need to die.  It makes no sense.  Unless you are a religion of evil.

Now I now there are good, God-fearing (or is it Allah fearing), America loving, Muslims out there.  And I have no problem with them or their religion as long as they are not trying to kill me or anyone else.  Same with any religion.  However, there is a group, a rather large majority of this religion that believe in the extremist ways.  These are the people who praise the cowards who perpetrate crimes such as 9/11 or even this tragedy, over a video.  But that’s not really the issue.

The video played no role in the attack.  This was an orchestrated attack by the Muslim Brotherhood on America.  The same Muslim Brotherhood our “great” commander-in-chief meets with in the White House while snubbing Israel, or sending them $1 billion in foreign aid.  That’s right, Obama is sending them $1 billion dollars in aid.  To terrorists.  Wake up people,  we are being lied to by our leaders and the mainstream media.

If this were Christians or Jews attacking an Egyptian embassy.  This would be treated as terrorism.  Why is it not being treated that way now.

WE Will NEVER Forget

Eleven years ago today, evil rose from the depths of hell.  That evil had conjured a plan to take thousands of innocent lives and tear America apart.  This plan was devised and deployed by cowards, Muslim extremists, people who are less than human, people who are true scum of the earth.  On that day, they killed nearly 3,000 people from 115 countries.  The had succeeded at their goal of death and destruction.  However, these cowards did not count us Americans coming together. We donated blood, food, and money to those in need.  We stood by our friends, family, neighbors and strangers, and held each others hands and prayed to God for guidance and hope.  We showed them that they had failed in their diabolical plot, that we were strong and they were the weak, and we showed them the mighty force of the American military, and brought them to justice.

Now more than ever we need to come together.  It doesn’t matter your race or politics, we need to get back to that unity and strength we had on 9/12/2001.

We at TheRevolutionary will never forget.
