Multiple Exposés: Well Documented with Original Sources

Here we are. The nightmare of another Continuing Resolution is looming over taxpayers’ heads in November. Instead of congress working on separate appropriations bills,  it appears that Nancy Pelosi and The Democrats seem determined to cover-up seemingly obvious misdeeds through the unsavory threat of impeaching Donald Trump for that which he did not do.

It appears that Democrats and Republican Progressives only care about wielding power, exercising control, and amassing personal fortunes from the pockets of taxpaying Americans

Facts. Go There.

Go there with Glenn Beck. Sign Up! #GetTheBlaze

 

Here are but a few of the links to the documents from Beck’s chalkboard exposé:

#GoThere with Lee Stranahan

This is lengthy yet meticulous documentation in Lee’s Twitter feed that shows where the connections begin, even before the 2016 election.  Note the linked connections that show the part John McCain, with his McCain Institute, played in this apparently calculated plot.

#GoThere with Andrew C. McCarthy of National Review

  2. Double Standards on Ukraine
  3. How about a Bipartisan Treaty against the Criminalization of Elections?
  4. Do Republicans See the Strategy to Discredit the Barr Investigation?
  5. If the House Won’t Vote, Impeachment Inquiry Is Just a Democratic Stunt
  6. Quid Pro Quo and Extortion: Welcome to Foreign Relations

Now you know and Democrats know you know. Therefore what?

Politely, burn the phones and flood social media with the hashtag #DeceiveMeNotTell Pelosi to Vote for Impeachment or #StopTheFarce & #EndTheConflict. (Pelosi on Facebook; on Twitter, on Medium.)

Oh that Flake: That Yappy Jeff Flake

When I saw this headline in the Deseret News the other day, I thought blood would shoot out of my eyes. 

Why Jeff Flake says the 2020 election is a chance for Republicans to save their souls

Jeff Flake for U.S. Senate – Monday, April 30, 2012

Yes. Jeff Flake was endorsed, after having been vetted by my favorite conservative watchdogs, The Senate Conservatives Fund (SFC).  SFC was Jim DeMint’s flagship to get true conservatives elected into the Senate. Team members carefully vetted, and still do, every candidate they endorse. Flake was no exception. Plus, Flake had a really good record from serving in the House. 

What happened, Jeff?

Spit. 

As SCF supporters know, Jeff Flake misled us and misled the voters in Arizona when he said he would never support amnesty for illegal immigrants again. Shortly after he won his Senate race in 2012, he broke that promise and sided with Senator John McCain (R-AZ) and other liberals in pushing amnesty.  

Link: Senate Conservatives Fund

Yes. Oh yeah, that Jeff Flake misled and betrayed voters less than a year from his being elected into the Senate. That shockwave is never forgotten by those of us gobsmacked by his blatant betrayal. That is why many of us loathe him now. 

But wait. There’s more. There is always more with Jeff Flake. And my questions are:

  1. Who’s backing him?
  2. Where are his funds coming from?
  3. How did they get him to flip?

Spit. 

The media need to know, when reporting on Senator Flake and his “book,” that the author is a deceiver out for personal and financial gain.  I also call on my conservative brethren to denounce this impostor, who dishonorably claims to speak for conservatism, in the strongest possible terms.

Who is behind the Mike Lee attacks?

For the last two years I have seen attacks on Mike Lee continue to grow. Why is that? Who is behind those attacks? Why are alleged Conservatives fueling those attacks or perhaps the better question: Who are the trusted voices whispering in their ears?

What I know about Mike Lee is: ASK Mike Lee. Go to the ORIGINAL SOURCE, Mike Lee, just like Glenn Beck did:

If you have followed Mike Lee, you know he is more measured in thought than most. He is not one to speak without careful considerations. You know he is a Constitutionalist. You know his father, the late Rex Lee, taught him well. You know Mike has always been able to discuss his rational thoughts on that which he believes, promotes, and stands for.

If you do not know that then pull your head out of the sand, out of the sky, or out from wherever you are hiding it and go to the original source, Mike Lee and then seriously consider the trash talk about him. Ask yourself these questions when sophists bash Mike Lee:

  1. Am I being approached as a thinking citizen or as a frightened animal?
  2. How did the basher find out what they know?
  3. Is this a contrived story or twisted representation of what Mike actually said or believes?
  4. Do I really trust the hearsay or do I trust Mike’s Constitutional voting history more? 
  5. Is the yapper giving an accurate account of something or it is an attack on Mike Lee? 
  6. Can I verify the information by going to Mike Lee as my original source? 

(Hat Tip to Gary C. Lawrence, Political Campaigns and You, New Era, Sept. 1972)

So please. If you feel triggered by some report of what Mike Lee said or is trying to do, do your own research. Do not trust anyone who is trying to discredit an honorable man, doing the very best he can to be honest, true, and trustworthy of your good opinion.

Full Disclosure: I am a huge fan of Mike Lee. IF he ever goes rogue (spit), oh, I will talk about it. 

 

Dear Activist Friends: Come with me to FreedomFest 2020!

Over the years I have met many wonderful political activists thanks to organizations that I belong to or support. Some of these wonderful people have been working to keep the Republican Party Conservative for over 20-30 even 40 years or more. And everyone gets to a point where taking time off is essential to rejuvenate the soul for most everyone works in between family, social and spiritual obligations, and life events.

Almost everyone I know has donated their time and talents to serve Conservative causes. They travel to events and meetings at great personal expense. As unpaid citizen activists they do what they do for the sake of freedom, especially for the freedom of generations to come. There is no glory. There is no reward. And there certainly is no one to reimburse their expenses.

And for all of that work, here we are stuck with the failed leadership of the National Republican Machine which #allegedly includes Mitch Mcconnell and Kevin McCarthy and everyone for the last 40 years who broke their promises to Balance the Budget and Make Government Small Again. (Don’t get us started on those who promised Full Repeal! spit!)

That brings me to FreedomFest 2020: CATCH THE VISION, July 13-16.

I write this to convince my dear friends to join me in 2020 for what I expect to be an event designed to shed sunlight on conversations that matter most to us. After listening to the 8-20-2019 The Reed Hour on the Loving Liberty Radio Network, featuring Mark Skousen I am like a child in anticipation of Christmas in July next year. 

Just listening to the podcast a second time I feel like I have dumped my old, worn out power cells to replace them with new, solar powered entities. The energy surges through my solar plexus and my heart leaps with hope and joy.

What wholly appeals to me is the networking philosophy that FreedomFest promotes. The forum is designed as a convention of great ideas, of sharing information, and I love how the speakers are attendees just like me, they are not ushered into some sacred space for the elite.

It is exciting to know that FreedomFest embraces the gamut of Conservative and Libertarian thought through presenters, panels, and a variety of media presentations. FreedomFest is about the exchanges, the conversations, the opportunities to find common ground that will, hopefully, encourage us to work together within those commonalities as we return to our homes, our organizations, our communities.

Please, take the time to listen to the podcast in its entirety. I think you will come to understand why I am drawn to FreedomFest and especially why I am so thrilled about finally being able to attend in 2020.

#HaveTheDiscussion: Free Markets & Capitalism

Rachel Brevard wrote, what I thought, a great piece titled Hawley is Asking the Right Questions About the Dollar. I posted a few snippets from her article on Twitter and one quote brought out a quick comeback from my favorite Capitalist Pig, Jonathan Hoenig. Jonathan was short and to the point in his response.

Please note: It was late last night when I posted Rachel’s piece. I actually fell asleep with my phone in hand prior to finishing posting the thread so did feel a little slighted that Jonathan seemed to unjustly reprimand me. (It is all good. Water off a duck’s back, really. I truly adore him.)

Jonathan talks a lot about free markets, capitalism, and Wall Street. He has an online show about Objective Investing most Saturdays, usually around 10 a.m. Central. There have been a few times when I recall him saying “defend Capitalism” and once, when a viewer pummeled the timeline with contrary opinions, Jonathan responded with, “come on, help me out here [audience].” as he defended his capitalist pig position.

He is right. Defend Capitalism.

In Rachel’s article, I like how she goes through a thought process. Using questions, she addresses the language, the phraseology that is used in the media today. I have heard those terms and phrases used for years but she asks questions and then is clear to state:

Maybe the answer to both these questions is yes, and maybe Hawley’s pursuit of these policy corrections is misguided. But the conversation he is starting is not out of line. Their dismissal of it is.

And it’s to the benefit of everyone on the Right to welcome an honest assessment of the realities in the current marketplace, test whether old assumptions still apply, and either attack or defend them with the intellectual rigor our politics deserve.

The conversation is not out of line. Their dismissal of it is.

I know what Jonathan thinks. He is a follower of Ayn Rand. He promotes Objectivism and as mentioned previously, has his own twist in how he applies her theory to being objective in his investment philosophy, which I find useful as an investment philosophy.

What I love about Jonathan is his expertise in the markets. I love that he generously shares what he has learned, his personal experience with others. He is quick witted. His mind is agile, filled with information and he is, usually, quick on the draw with his encyclopedia-like capitalist pig knowledge.

Like Jonathan and Rachel, I agree that discussions and defense of the free market, true capitalism, must be had to correctly influence those beguiled by the anti-capitalist sophists in American culture today. Influencing the public by answering anti-capitalist questions with better questions and then following up with true, free market principles in the discussion seems a more effective way to educate those within our spheres of influence.

Why not defend Capitalism by acknowledging it is based upon principles that Matt Kibbe so eloquently discusses in Don’t Hurt People and Don’t Take Their Stuff? Could we then  better defend Capitalism by acknowledging that Taxpayers are not responsible for corporate or government bailouts? And what would happen if we defend Capitalism by discussing bad practices and correctly labeling criminal behavior as anti-capitalist instead of blaming Wall Street collectively?

Miscreants who lie, cheat, steal, and abuse the Capitalist System are not Capitalists. They are what they are, liars, cheaters, thieves and system abusers or basically, anti-capitalists.

I think in reaching out to the common man and woman, and I include myself in that statement, gentle persuasion, asking questions, and offering suggestions is a more effective way to win friends and influence people. And I say that as a screamer, one who has blood shooting out of her eyes, and my head popping off from having had to listen to the sophistry of socialists and totalitarians and anti-capitalists and watching RINOs for many years.

#FrameTheDebate: Criminal & Crazy Control

A brilliant friend of mine, Joe Walker, took a 365 challenge to post a graphic every day. His work is fabulous and he is a fantastic man to boot. Following his 365 example I tried to write every day for a year on this blog. I did it, making a mess of my daily count (#mathimpaired) but I did indeed complete the challenge.

One piece I wrote included homage to Daniel Greenfield. I LOVE Daniel Greenfield. Truly. I love him for his brilliantly reasoned writing. The flow and tone in his articles move through my soul and very often settle my frenetic thoughts on a subject. In fact, I wish I had seen this before posting my thoughts on #RedFlagLaws for I certainly would have added it to the reading list:

WE NEED CRIMINAL AND CRAZY CONTROL, NOT GUN CONTROL

When criminals and psychos aren’t locked up, then everyone ends up in jail.

Gun controllers insist that the Founding Fathers never anticipated the problem of mass shooters. That’s probably true. But they would have also never tolerated the conditions that brought them into being, a permissive criminal justice system, a failure to institutionalize the mentally ill, and a media that promotes these acts of violence under the guise of condemning them and clamoring for gun control. 

This piece by Michelle Malkin is an excellent read in the demonizing of the Military whistleblowers. False allegations and labeling, or red-flagging those who oppose government bureaucrats who have a little authority as the bureaucrats suppose, is nothing new. Just ask anyone falsely accused of anything by a bureaucrat. This article is proof of how Red Flag Laws will work if instituted across America.

BEWARE THE GUN-GRABBING CRISIS VULTURES

How the VA 'red-flags' patriots.

Understanding abuse of power by bureaucrats makes it easy to fully appreciate this segment with Eric Brakey on the rationale of the Second Amendment.

Erick is right! “If the people are not allowed the means to self-defense then we are not citizens, we’re subjects.”

Taking guns away from law abiding gun owners is NOT the solution if it does not include due process. Under today’s Red Flag Laws Thomas Massie and John R. Lott, Jr. point out:

‘Red Flag’ Laws Are the Wrong Solution to Mass Shootings

“During the first nine months after Florida passed its red-flag law last year, judges granted more than 1,000 confiscation orders. In the three months after Maryland’s law went into effect on October 1, more than 300 people had their guns confiscated. In one case in Arundel County, a 61-year-old man died when the police stormed his home at 5 a.m. to take away his guns. Connecticut and Indiana, which have had these laws in effect for the longest time, have seen increasingly large numbers of confiscation orders.” 

 

If you do not know who Jonathan Dunne is, then please check out his website and podcasts. As Freedom’s Disciple, he truly understands how to #FrameTheDebate as he discusses the:

Roots of Gun Control & The Solutions

 

One of the greatest mass killings took place on 9/11 2001, and as Jonathan points out (around 20:22 minutes) it had nothing to do with guns. Neither did the Oklahoma Bombings. Dunne attributes these heinous acts to a “health, heart and head problem” that needs be solved.

The Social Elitists and their minions have been pushing for gun control for more than thirty years. Red Flag Laws are the most disturbing push for the subjective nature of accusations that can or might be leveled to usurp the unalienable right to keep and bear arms.

Criminals and Crazy people will always circumvent the law, the rules, the norms or a moral society. And almost always, it is the liars, deceivers, and power seekers demanding and influencing the crazies to take #Control by hurting people and taking their stuff.

So yeah. We definitely need Criminal and Crazy control.

Red Flag Laws: Opposing Freedom

I just got off the telephone comment line to the Whitehouse to make sure my voice is heard about preserving the 2nd Amendment by opposing Red Flag Laws. I also sent an email to President Trump on the subject. (Tip: call the Switchboard, 202-456-1414, if the comment line is busy.

Aside from my personal experience in listening to the Gun Control debate for the last 40 years+, I thought it prudent to list some of my current reads and favorite video clips that have firmed my stance on why I am concerned over who’s watching the watchers, against additional background checks, and the importance of fighting off those who wish to control this issue through emotional rhetoric.

Today Front Page Magazine put out a fabulous article that clearly articulates the need for discussion:

FROM EL PASO TO FORT HOOD

When the FBI failed to prevent a mass murder they knew was coming.

Glenn Beck’s book CONTROL is the best when it comes to documentation on the issue, and then some. His company, BlazeTV.com has many hosts who have raised the warnings, and you should hear from their guests!

 

Dana Loesch is one of the best when it comes to articulating and fighting for the Second Amendment:

Why Red Flag Laws Are Not A Good Solution To Mass Shootings

Do you feel comfortable giving up a cornerstone of our republic for a safety dependent upon enforcement by a government that has failed at this before?

Great segment here with Simon Sinek: “It’s not about guns, it’s about kids being lonely…”

Here are two wonderful educational videos with the late and great Charlton Heston:

In a clarion call to action here is a reminder about the importance of making sure President Trump hears your voice in defense of the Second Amendment and opposition to Red Flag Laws:
