This last election taught us an important lesson.  Barry Goldwater tried to warn us back in 1964, but we did not listen.

“Those who seek absolute power, even though they seek it to do what they regard as good, are simply demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth. And let me remind you, they are the very ones who always create the most hellish tyrannies.

Absolute power does corrupt, and those who seek it must be suspect and must be opposed. Their mistaken course stems from false notions of equality, ladies and gentlemen. Equality, rightly understood, as our founding fathers understood it, leads to liberty and to the emancipation of creative differences. Wrongly understood, as it has been so tragically in our time, it leads first to conformity and then to despotism.”

Sound familiar? Look back at the way liberals tried to shove political correctness down our collective throats over the past eight years.  Reflect on how they have responded to this election. How would you describe this better than: “demanding the right to enforce their own version of heaven on earth?

How better than to describe this than “conformity” which leads to “despotism.” Combine with a MSM ready, willing and able to ignore the obvious and embrace the ridiculous.  Add in possibly the most corrupt candidate for President in the history of the U.S.; a candidate who openly said that she would appoint a Supreme Court Justice who would focus more on her version of “heaven on earth” than the outdated Constitution.

We dodged a bullet here.  But this victory will be short lived if we fail to recognize the threat.  Liberals are not going to leave quietly.  We have not been at war with them, but they have most definitely been at war with us.  If we do not defeat them, they will never stop until they have replaced our democracy with tyranny.  They have no interest in compromising with us or even tolerating us.  This may be our last chance to restore the rule of law, separation of power and true liberty for all.

But that is only possible if we come to grips with a cold hard truth.  Liberals can never again be trusted with power.  We cannot compromise with those who simply do not accept our most basic values.  We dare not even attempt to negotiate with those who are only interested in destroying us. We must defeat them.  We must defeat them by appointing judges, at all levels, who will honor the constitution.  We must defeat them by putting in fair election reforms that guarantee free elections where every eligible citizen has an equal chance to vote and every vote has equal value. Those who do not believe in voter fraud are simply not paying attention to places like New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Los Angeles. Are we really naïve enough to believe that 81% of the people in New York City voted for Barack Obama and 79% voted for Hillary Clinton?  The only place(s) on this earth where one candidate gets that kind of majority vote is a dictatorship and a metropolitan area run by a Democratic machine.

The only thing necessary for evil to succeed is for good people to do nothing.  You’ve been warned.


7 and 7

The DOJ Inspector General has been given the assignment of investigatiing broad allegations of misconduct involving the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton.

This is an obvious effort by the Obama administration to sweep the Hillary Clinton e-mail scandal under the rug and throw James Comey under the bus. The marching orders are obviously designed to do exactly that:

“The review will not substitute the OIG’s judgment for the judgments made by the FBI or the Department regarding the substantive merits of investigative or prosecutive decisions,”

My best guess is that this is the strategy developed by the Obama administration to protect Hillary without having to explain a pardon.

Unless someone or something intervenes, the fix is in:

“Horowitz wrote that he will explore “allegations that Department or FBI policies or procedures were not followed” in connection with both letters, but his probe will extend beyond that. He wrote that he also will explore “allegations that Department and FBI employees improperly disclosed non-public information” — which is perhaps a reference to Giuliani, who seemed to claim at one point he had insider FBI knowledge. And Horowitz wrote that his inquiry will extend back to Comey’s July announcement that he was recommending the Clinton base be closed without charges.”

Just when you think the Obama administration could not possibly do more damage to the country, they do this. Sadly, no one in the MSM will even notice. It will be very interesting to see how Donald Trump responds. Next Friday cannot get here soon enough.   The mosting important thing to remember at this point is that in 7 days and 7 hours, Barack Obama will be permanently out of office, totally incapable of this kind of nonsense.



The Obama administration is so convinced that Russia intervened in our election that he kicked out 35 diplomats and announced new sanctions. The story was always suspicious. Even the Rolling Stone noticed:

All of the U.S. intelligence agencies agreed that it was Russia. Then we started to hear from private industry official, like John McAfee in an interview with Larry King:

There were more. They not only disagreed with our intelligence services, they literally laughed at them. Then Sean Hannity secured and interview with Julianne Assange, who runs WikiLeaks. Assange, who actually released the e-mails, said they weren’t from Russia. And then he said that John Podesta’s password was “password.”

Notice that the MSM has totally moved on from the Russia hacked the election mode. They never admitted the entire story was a hoax, they just moved on to the next anti-Trump story. The latest is that Trump won’t be able to handle tough questions at a news conference. This, of course, was on a show anchored by Don Lemon. That would be the same Don Lemon who got drunk on the air New Year’s eve, got his ear pierced live on national television, screamed about getting blood on his shirt and then had his mic cut off by CNN when he started going on a drunken rant.

Just when you though it could not possibly get any worse, it got worse. The liberal left is literally melting down life on TV. CNN, the most trusted name in NEWS, got beat in the ratings last year by HGTV. Liberal Democrats, led by Senator Chuck Schumer are threatening to delay hearings on eight cabinet appointments until March and to block ANY Supreme Court nominee by Trump. This is a huge mistake and it is another reminder that Democrats are incapable to accepting election results they don’t like. They are missing something really important. Republicans didn’t just win the Presidency, the House and the Senate last November. They have been decimating Democrats across the country. The following two graphs tell the tale.

The first is a map showing who controlled state governments in 2009:


Here is a map showing how it looks after the 2016 election:


If you look at the map of counties won by Republicans it is even more obvious what has happened:

red blue map


This actually explains why Democrats believe the Russians are coming. The entire country is turning deep red and Democrats have been pushed out to the extreme left coast and the ever isolated and out of touch North East.




Obama is famous for lecturing anyone who dares disagree with him.  He is also famous for doing actually nothing to back up his threats.  Up until now the world has just ignored him and giggled privately.  However, with this idiotic hissy fit throwing out some Russian diplomats and proposing sanctions he can’t possibly enforce, he has violated an important rule.  “It is better to stay silent, and be thought a fool, then to open your mouth and prove it.”  Russia is literally laughing in his face and saying they will wait until he is replaced by an adult.

We should all be concerned that Obama will do something drastic to try and remain somewhat relevant.  He is clearly frustrated that in less than three weeks he will be totally out of power.  He is desperately trying to influence things after he walks out the door.  He is flailing madly and just embarrassing himself.  This is like a really bad act on America’s Got Talent that tries to keep on performing long after all four judges have pushed their buzzers.  If Democrats are not embarrassed by this, they aren’t paying attention.

Obama is accusing Russia of interfering in our election by releasing private e-mails from the DNC.  No one disputes that these are real e-mails, Democrats are just pissed that the attempted Obama cover-up failed to work.  In effect, Russia apparently interfered in our election by exposing the truth about Hillary Clinton.  This is like the guy who is caught robbing a bank on video filing a protest against the surveillance company for invasion of privacy.  Good luck trying to get a judge or jury to buy that nonsense.

One would note that hacking the DNC computer system is not actually a threat to national security.  Does anyone seriously think that the U.S. is not trying to hack Russian communications?  Come on!  The U.S. literally sent a submarine into the Black Sea to put a wiretap on Russian communication cables.  We tapped everything they said for years.  We can be certain every country capable of spying on other nations is doing exactly that.  The Russians, sadly, may be doing a better job than us, but it is silly to pretend we aren’t playing the same game. Hillary personally tried to interfere in Russia’s election when she publicly questioned the integrity of Russian parliamentary elections in 2011.

What really happened here is that the DNC was embarrassed in the worst possible way.  They were caught red handed (pun intended) stealing the primary election from Bernie Sanders.  They were exposed as being incredibly stupid. The Russians didn’t exactly pull this off with some sophisticated electronic hack.  They sent fishing e-mails that should have been recognized by eight year old.  Senior Democrats, like John Podesta, took the bait; hook, line and sinker and gave away their user ids and passwords.  Brilliant!

A lot of people are expressing fear that Putin will dominate Trump.  The evidence is clear that the opposite is happening.  Putin made some noise about racketing up his nuclear arsenal.  Trump shut him down with the following twitter:

Translation, for liberal Democrats, who don’t understand this stuff:  “Have at it Vlad. You are in for an arms race you can’t possibly win.” It wasn’t Trump who backed down, it was Putin:

Even with regard to this childish stunt by Obama, Putin did not retaliate.  That wasn’t because he is intimidated by Obama, he laughed at Obama.  It is because he didn’t want to risk a confrontation with the new sheriff in town.

The good news is that whether he wants to admit it or not, time has run out for Barack Obama and he is headed toward the scrap heap of history.  It can’t happen soon enough for me.



John Kerry burst on the political scene by lying under oath, before congress, falsely accusing his fellow Vietnam Veterans of routinely committing war crimes.   This was after he committed treason by trying to negotiate a personal peace treaty with representatives of the Viet Cong.  He was just getting started. For decades he has brilliantly combined all the worst possible elements in one shallow, arrogant, incompetent soulless politician.

Seldom, in the history of this country, has one man accumulated so much wealth and power to so little effect. I would pause, in fairness, to list his accomplishments, if any were to be found.

The liberal left praises John Kerry for the Iran Contra investigation. They leave out something really important. Senators John Kerry and Tom Harkin visited Nicaraguan President Daniel Ortega in 1985.  Neither noticed or cared that the Sandinistas were communists, with close ties to Cuba.  They were not concerned that Russia was supplying the Sandinistas with no cost armaments including the MI-24 attack helicopters (Hinds) and MI-17 transport helicopters.  They didn’t care that the Contras were seeking free elections and Democracy.  Democrats were determined to prevent the United States from providing any assistance to the Contras.  The result was the Boland Amendment designed to guarantee that the Contras went down to defeat with no help from the U.S.  How dare this country stand up against communism!

”No funds available to the Central Intelligence Agency, the Department of Defense or any other agency or entity of the United States involved in intelligence activities may be obligated or expended for the purpose or which would have the effect of supporting, directly or indirectly, military or paramilitary operations in Nicaragua by any nation, group, organization, movement or individual.”

In the 1986 fiscal year, Congress approved $27 million in aid for the contras but stipulated that none of it could be spent on weapons. The Administration was explicitly permitted to solicit contra aid from other nations, but only if that aid was not used to buy weapons. In November of that year, Congress also said the C.I.A. could share intelligence with the contras.

President Ronald Reagan, who believed our national security was at stake, told National Security Advisor Robert McFarlane:  “I want you to do whatever you have to do to help these people keep body and soul together.”

The result was the Iran Contra fiasco where the CIA, in a desperate attempt to help the Contras with zero assistance from congress, turned to highly unethical and irresponsible choices.  Democrats never considered the possibility that the most unethical thing Ronald Reagan could have done was to abandon the Contras and let the Sandinistas win.

Democrats, led by John Kerry, rejoiced at the opportunity to investigate those who were fighting the war against communism. They never considered the reality that the only reason the Iran Contra scandal was necessary was because Democrats were willing to sacrifice national security on the altar of partisan politics. In the end, to the shock and horror of the liberal left, the Contras won in spite of the best efforts of liberal Democrats like John Kerry and the Sandinistas were defeated in free elections.

Today, John Kerry gave what is probably the dumbest and most irresponsible speech ever by a Secretary of State.  He not only stabbed the nation of Israel in the back, he arrogantly explained exactly why liberal Democrats can never be trusted with national security.  The Palestinian Liberation Organization has zero interest in peace, it won’t even acknowledge Israel’s right to exist. If you ask the PLO what they want the answer is always the same; they want Israel to be annihilated.  There is none so blind as he who will not see.

The good news here is that the John Kerry era will be over January 20, 2016. I wonder how long before CNN notices.


How many people realize that Russia was a Republic? The Russian Republic took over after the abdication of Czar Nicholas II on March 15, 1917. It was intended to be a provision government that would pave the way for a Democracy. It was composed of highly respected moderates. So what happened? The answer quite simply is that the communists never considered sharing power. As soon as the provisional government took power, the Petrograd Soviet of Workers’ and Soldier’s Deputies issued Order No. 1 which ordered Russian armed forces to ignore the new government.

Technically the Petrograd Soviet pledged loyalty to the Provisional Government, but only when it agreed. The provision government wanted to appease everyone. It gave amnesty to political prisoners. But it was stupid to give amnesty to people like Lenin, Trotsky and Zinoviev. Lenin has been out of the country since 1900. As soon as he arrived back on Russian soil he began his plot to take over. By November 8, 1917 the Council of the People’s Commissars established a Bolshevik government. It was called the people’s government but it was actually a dictatorship.

The lesson here is that radicals believe in democracy only when they win. They have zero interest in sharing power. If Hillary Clinton had won this election, Democrats would be setting the table to take complete control. Hillary would have appointed liberal Supreme Court justices and the result would have been nothing short of shredding our constitution. Laws, passed by congress, that were not viewed as politically correct, would have been declared unconstitutional. Liberals would have taken complete control of the country. But, miraculously, Hillary did not win.

In spite of massive support by the main stream media, a $1.2 billion campaign and blatant attempts at voter fraud, Donald Trump won. Democrats are just now realizing the totality of their defeat. Even though some desperate radicals are still trying to dispute the election, it is over. They tell you they are afraid of Donald Trump, but they are mostly afraid of a return to democracy. They are truly terrified of a voter ID and limiting the election to one vote per registered voter. But what they fear most is a return to honoring the constitution that has kept us free for since 1789. They are absolutely terrified that Donald Trump will appoint a Supreme Court justice ready, willing and able to uphold the constitution.

They have already tried a ludicrous recount in the idiotic belief that people really didn’t vote against Hillary. Now, they are trying to blame the failed election on Russia. Seriously? Russia? If Russia did impact this election, it was only by allowing the inconvenient truth to surface. Incredibly, in a last minute desperate attempt to stop Donald Trump, some Democrats are literally suggesting the Electoral College be briefed with regard to the alleged Russian intervention in a pathetic hope that somehow, miraculously, Hillary Clinton will still win this election. They are hopelessly naïve. Even if Donald Trump was denied the Presidency, at this point, Hillary will never be President. Even the pathetic Republican establishment is not that stupid. There is zero chance that Hillary Clinton will be the next President of the United States. The best liberals can even hope for at this point is a President Mike Pence or a Mitt Romney.

We dodged a real bullet here. I do not know if Donald Trump will be a great or even a good President. I just know he stopped Hillary Clinton and perhaps that is more than enough. It will not end here. True, liberals are being bounced from power all over the world. But, victory celebrations are always short and the danger remains. Sleep well tonight; the victory of Donald Trump has bought us valuable time but remember the Russian Republic. The enemies of democracy never give up and they will never, ever consider really sharing political power.



That’s right folks.  California, the state that wants to legalize marijuana also wants to regulate cow farts.

This is what happens when you keep electing KoolAid drinking liberal Democrats.

One of the good things about California is that there has been a massive campaign to stop people from smoking cigarettes or even vaping.  It is nice to live in a state where you don’t have to wade through a cloud of noxious fumes to eat lunch.  Sporting events, not counting the restrooms during a Raiders game, are smoke free.  With the new regulation of cow farts, even the great outdoors is destined to smell better.

I know some of you, living in the more rational parts of the country, have been wondering how one state could contain so many people stupid enough to vote for Hillary Clinton.  We now know the answer.  We have a surplus of cow farts.  The dairy industry in California is much larger than anyone realizes. California cows produce 40.9 billion pounds of milk each year, compared to 29.0 billion lbs. produced by the Dairy State, Wisconsin.  Wisconsin does produce more cheese, 3.046 billion lbs., but California is a close second at 2.436 billion lbs.   A lot of cows mean a lot of cow farts.  This explains a lot.  Cow Farts may have been doing a lot more damage than anyone realized.  Maybe this explains why California is one of only 4 states with enough people stupid enough to vote for liberal Democrats to control the Assembly, the Senate, the Governor and every statewide elected office.

Democrats desperate to stop global warming have taken action to bring the cows in line.  But what if cows reduced farting to the extent that there were fewer stupid people?  This could be a serious problem.  If there are fewer stupid people, how will Democrats ever get elected?  To heck with illegal aliens voting, it is quite possible cow farts are the primary reason Hillary Clinton is leading in the popular vote total.  If you don’t count California, she lost by a huge margin. Just saying!

Something had to be done.  Bingo!  Why not legalize marijuana and tax it.   Perfect.  And you wonder why we call it the Golden State.



The vote total right now is as follows, based on 129 million voters:

CLINTON 47.89% 61,778,100
TRUMP 47.16% 60,836,400
DIFFERENCE 0.73% 941,700


Hillary Clinton is leading the popular vote nationally by 941,700 votes.  Check out the results in California:


CLINTON 6,832,500 1,760,129
TRUMP 3,664,014 578,457
DIFFERENCE 3,168,486 1,181,672


That’s right folks.  Hillary lost the popular vote big time if you don’t include California.  She lost the popular vote If you don’t include Los Angeles Country.  If we eliminate the Electoral College, the winner of every Presidential election will likely be decided solely by California and in many cases, like last week, solely by Los Angeles County.   That is why our founding fathers set up the Electoral College.  It is why we need to keep it.  It is why liberal Democratic Senators like Barbara Boxer want to eliminate it.


Any questions?




Steven Point, Wisconsin is in the middle of Wisconsin. We lived there while I was attending the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point. It is a very cold place during the winter. The closest TV station was in Wausau, which is not exactly a major media market. As a result, there were times when the TV reporters where so bad they became fun to watch. We watched the entire career of one particular man, we liked to call Zeb. We figured he must be related to the owner of the station. He started in commercials. They were horrible. They tried to make him a reporter, but he was awful. Then, in an act of desperation, they made him the weather man. He failed at that too, because he couldn’t remember the names of the states. He would point at a state and then start to stutter in a desperate attempt to come up with the name and finally say: “over here.” Another weatherman was discussing a major thunderstorm that had struck the area. He said that there were thousands of homes without power tonight so a lot of people were probably watching him by candle light. About two minutes later, after a commercial break, he came back on the air and said he realized he had said something stupid and please stop calling. Then there was the time one of the anchors starting talking but there was no sound. He got this shocked look on his face and then literally put his hands in a T sign, apparently asking for a time out. He was back, after another commercial, explaining that this is what happens when you forget your microphone. But our favorite show was “Fabiano’s Music Variety Show.” Fabiano owned a music store in Wausau so he would put on a show with his “star” pupils. Some of them had been playing for several weeks. He wore a shark skin suit and tried to mimic Lawrence Welk. It was just plain awful, but brilliantly awful and we laughed so hard we had tears running down our face. As you can tell, you have to find your entertainment where you can when you live in a place like Stevens Point.

I never dreamed that I would ever find TV so entertaining again, until I watched the MSM meltdown before, during and after this election. The MSM has become so bad it is starting to resemble a bad SNL skit. You can’t make this stuff up. They convinced themselves that the mythical monster they call Donald Trump actually exists in the real world. They couldn’t believe that anyone was seriously considering a vote for Donald Trump.

The following compilation explains everything. We start will all the people who were so certain that Donald Trump could not possibly win:

Now, the response when liberals realize they have lost. Note these are liberals, so please be prepared to be offended by the language:

Liberals still do not get it. They do not understand something really important. Donald Trump is something they cannot comprehend. He is a real person who says what he means. This reminds me of “All in the Family.” Liberals in Hollywood were very concerned that there would be a huge backlash because “Archie Bunker” was the polar opposite of being politically correct. Instead the show became extremely popular because people loved the honesty. Archie Bunker said the things that people believed but were afraid to say. Well, Archie Bunker is going to be the next President of the United States and if nothing else, it is going to be entertaining.



It turns out that Newsweek published a special “Madame President” souvenir edition and shipped it out to stores ahead of the election.  They didn’t bother to print a “Mr. Trump Goes to Washington” souvenir edition because all the pundits said Hillary had this all locked up.  Oops.

Some will recall that I predicted that Democrats would turn on Hillary Clinton if she lost this election.  The following article in the New York Post shows that this has already happened:

This article quotes Democratic insiders.  All agree that they are done with anything Clinton.  Tuesday morning, the world was at their beck and call.  Today, the world does not care.  The problem for the Clintons is that deep down they were always and only about themselves.  It was all about their personal power.  That power is completely gone and so are they.

Last night Bill O’Reilly was brutally blunt about Hillary Clinton.  He said she is a liar and good riddance.  O’Reilly did not say that before the election.  He was afraid to say that before the election.  There are a lot of other people who have secretly despised but feared the Clinton’s for decades. Hillary did shatter a glass ceiling, but not the one she expected.  She shattered the Clinton protective shield and I predict that within a very short period of time we will all be stunned by the vile and vitriol that surfaces.

The person likely to pay the highest price is Chelsea Clinton:

“How’s Chelsea going to live?” another insider asked The Post. “Is she going to give speeches, go on boards? No one wants her anymore . . . You think NBC’s going to hire her now? Because she’s good on camera? Give me a break.”

Right now the MSM is in full meltdown because they clearly believed the nonsense they were reporting about Donald Trump.  They took Donald Trump’s disregard of political correctness and deemed it the equivalence of the Nazi regime.  This is clear evidence that the MSM cannot distinguish between impolite honesty and tyranny. While Donald is no saint and at times he has said things that are indefensible in a lot of other cases he was merely speaking an inconvenient truth that liberals cannot or will not understand. He is not anti-Hispanic but he understands the problem with the people flooding across our border.  He is not anti-Muslim but he understands the threat from ISIS type terrorists trying to use the flood of refugees to infiltrate our country.  He is not anti-Black but he understands the problem of black on black crime and he understands that law and order protects everyone.

We are about to learn another inconvenient truth.  There are many personal stories about Donald Trump.  They frequently involve acts of spontaneous kindness and generosity.  What you don’t hear are stories about him erupting in anger, throwing things and stomping on people when they are down.  You don’t hear stories of people who dared to oppose Donald Trump conveniently dying under strange and bizarre circumstances.  Those stories are out there, and they are about to become public, but they will be about Hillary Clinton not Donald Trump.  I think the lid has been lifted off the sewer and before Donald Trump even takes the oath of office a lot of people are going to realize that this country just dodged a very big bullet.
