Liberalism is an ideology.  Conservatism is a way of life.  The first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with.
One of my father’s best known witticisms was, “Some people are like the old prospector’s mule…you have to hit ‘em between the eyes with a two-by-four to get their attention.”  He was not wrong.  The past two decades have exposed far too many “low-information” voters who elected incompetent leftist politicians. 
All across our nation a quiet rage is building against the liberal assault upon American values.  More so than ever in the history of America, the concerns and patience of its people are being tested, tried and attacked by a group of elitists that is Hell-bent on the destruction of this country.  Voters can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates before casting their ballots. 
I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny.  America is calling, and we citizens must band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.
Refuse to remain silent!  Question boldly, hold to the truth and speak without fear!  The only rights you have in this world are the ones you are willing to fight for.  But you are not alone.

"Liberalism is an ideology. Conservatism is a way of life. The difference between modern Liberalism and Conservatism is the first one believes that government is owner and distributor of freedom and rights, while the other maintains that government exists to protect the rights and freedoms Man is born with."



"The times are too grave, the challenge too urgent, and the stakes too high — to permit the customary passions of political debate. We are not here to curse the darkness, but to light the candle that can guide us through that darkness to a safe and sane future."
~ John F. Kennedy


I found some fascinating "takeaways" from the recent White House meeting between President Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi.  Their televised discussion centered around border security and construction of a wall on the U.S./Mexico boundary.

President Trump has been promoting the wall since the beginning of his campaign in 2016, in order to stem the flow of illegal alien invaders and the crime, narcotics and diseases that accompany them.  Schumer and Pelosi, and their liberal Democrat sycophants, adamantly oppose the wall, advocating unfettered illegal immigration to create a permanent underclass of Democrat voters, while thumbing their noses at average Americans.

The "fake news," "lame-stream," "Trump-hating" media think Schumer and Pelosi hit a grand-slam in their debate with President Trump, while believing that Trump made an enormous mistake by claiming he would take responsibility for a government shutdown if Congress refuses to fund the wall in the upcoming budget.  Politicians from BOTH parties were aghast at the notion of another government shutdown, and too many Republicans are content to cave in to Democrat demands to avoid being blamed for such a consequence.

However, we now have a president willing to stand up to weak-minded lawmakers; to try to win these budget battles for the good of the people of this country; and at the same time accomplish something that’s necessary; and that’s stopping massive illegal immigration. If it takes a government shutdown to do it, then that’s what President Trump is going to do; it’s what he was elected to do.

He continues to take advantage of a really great opportunity, continuing to demonstrate that he is not a Washington, D.C. creature; that he is not of the swamp; that he is a different breed; which is what people perennially say they want, election after election; somebody that’s not an ingrained insider.

The debate that Trump had with the Democrat leaders in the Oval Office is a great example. Schumer and Pelosi were so uncomfortable.  They couldn't support their positions with facts or common sense. They can only win these events when there’s no media coverage, and then they walk out to the cameras and microphones and start spinning what happened, with total media support. In other words, they have to go out and misrepresent what happened in there like Pelosi did. She said that she felt like a mom dealing with a child, felt like she was in a "tinkle contest," and quoted, "You never want to get in a tinkle contest with a skunk.”

Socrates wrote, "When the debate is lost, slander becomes the tool of the loser!"  And Schumer and Pelosi are consummate losers!

Don't Be A "No-Information Voter!"

Voters in the United States can make a difference by adequately researching political candidates. Electing proven Conservatives is the first step in reversing the damage to our country caused by Liberals. Politicians must also be held accountable for their actions, and ineffective and dishonest lawmakers can and must be replaced either in scheduled elections or by recall provisions. If not, we will consent to our own oppression.

Many ignorant people want to punish individuals like me for accurately promoting the truth. If I’m verifiably correct, I will always speak my mind even if I’m a minority of one. I will defend my rights, and yours, against all enemies, both foreign and Democrat.

I want you to be resilient enough to protect your rights and resist tyranny. America is calling, and we citizens either band together and fight or we lose our country to illegals, terrorists and Liberals.

MSNBC's Deutsch: 'Pathetic' Trump Has Gone from Malignant Cancer to 'Benign Cancer'
By Mark Finklestein, December 13, 2018, MRC Newsbusters
Call them 'Morning Sisyphus '. . . The cruel king of Greek mythology was forced to roll a huge boulder up a hill, only for it to roll back down, requiring him to repeat the labor every day for eternity.

And so it is for the cast of Morning Joe. No matter how they might have denounced President Trump the day before, as the sun rises they are forced to begin yet again their labor of trying to take Trump down. 

Today, doing his part, Donny Deutsch put his shoulder to the stone. His notion was that President Trump's travails have rendered him "pathetic" and "defanged." And whereas Trump was once a "malignant cancer," he is now a "benign cancer."  

Here's Donny:
Morning Joe
7:14am ET

DONNY DEUTSCH: If you think back about a year ago, and you describe brand attributes, those are the words we use to describe brand, you would have said "strong, authoritative, in-charge, nasty, intimidating." And now when you look at him, as each day goes by, starting particularly with the [midterm] election, you see him as kind of pathetic and defanged and confused and goofy. It's the first time in his life he's not dealing from strength
 . . . 
And you see it. And he's vulnerable and he's weak. And there's a pathetic quality to him and it feels like a confused quality to him. And as this continues to be there will be nobody around him of any consequence, and even when there has [sic] been people around with consequence, it doesn't matter. 
. . . 
And he's gone from malignant to benign. That's the best way -- to me, he was always a cancer and he's gone from a malignant cancer to a benign cancer. The cancer's still there, but he does not have the toxic effect, he does not have the ability to impact, he does not have the ability to force his will on anything. And I think the weaker he seems and the weaker he is in reality, the more the circus is going to take on a surreal tone.

"Do not fear the enemy, for your enemy can only take your life. It is far better that you fear the media, for they will take your HONOR. That awful power, the public opinion of a nation, is created in America by a horde of ignorant, self-complacent simpletons who failed at ditching and shoemaking and fetched up in journalism on their way to the poorhouse." ~ Mark Twain


Dem Rep. Ted Lieu admits: I would love to control content of speech but First Amendment stops me!
By Joe Newby, December 13, 2018, Conservative Firing Line

While appearing on CNN Wednesday, Rep. Ted Lieu, D-Calif., admitted that he would love to be able to control and regulate the content of speech but the First Amendment prevents him from doing so.

In short, Lieu just admitted that he’s really no better than the Communists who ran the former Soviet Union.

“I would love if I could have more than five minutes to question witnesses. Unfortunately, I don’t get that opportunity. However, I would love to be able to regulate the content of speech. The First Amendment prevents me from doing so, and that’s simply a function of the First Amendment, but I think over the long run, it’s better the government does not regulate the content of speech,” he said in a discussion regarding the hearing with Google CEO Sundar Pichai. 

According to the Washington Free Beacon:
He added he would urge private companies to regulate their platforms more themselves but repeated the government shouldn’t play that role.

Lieu blasted the hearing as a waste of time perpetrated by Republicans and backed the right of corporations to free speech. He backs a constitutional amendment to overturn the Supreme Court decision Citizens United, however, which confirmed that right.

Lieu tweeted Tuesday he would like to regulate Fox News but said the fact that he couldn’t was “a good thing in the long run.”    

This, by the way, is the modern Democrat Party.

Thank God and the Founders for the Bill of Rights.

   The essence of freedom is the proper limitation of government!
