Since I stole all but the bottom three images from The Last Refuge, I figured I'd better at least give them a link to another one of their great posts.  


Have you noticed that the harder the anti-Trump movement tries to stop him, the better Trump seems to be doing?  I believe that much of Trump's recent success is not in spite of them, but because of them.

Trump really cleaned up back East, and all those pictured above's wet dreams of a brokered convention are quickly beginning to fade.

Things looked pretty bleak for Trump about a month ago, after the Wisconsin primary. All the Wisconsin conservative talk radio show hosts were patting themselves on the back, taking credit for it, and maybe, just maybe, they deserved it.  This was after all, a primary election, where the vast majority of people who voted for a Republican candidate, were themselves Republicans.  Many of those voters at least occasionally listen to these hosts.  

Since announcing his candidacy, almost all of the Wisconsin conservative talk radio show hosts have been all in' on the anti-Trump movement, and after the primary these hosts were all were commenting on the wisdom and independence of the Wisconsin voters.  You know, the ones who helped elect Obama, twice.

Maybe Wisconsin Republican voters are wise, but they certainly are not independent, at least not when compared to those in eastern states.  Wisconsinites lack the "F--- You, nobody's gonna tell me what to do" attitude for which the people of those states are famous.  

Wisconsin Republicans just ate up everything their local radio show hosts had to say, and they were really no different than those who were giving them their marching orders. 

Let me describe my job to you in simplest terms:  It's probably no different than your's - I have to do what my boss tells me what I have to do.  My thoughts and opinions do not enter the equation.
The Wisconsin conservative talk radio show hosts are just doing what they are told to do.  Mark Belling, Charlie Sykes, Jay Weber, and all the others are just saying what Clear Channel Radio, E.W. Scripps, or whoever signs their paychecks, tells them to say.  It has to be that way.  Would you, pay someone to say things that you disagreed with over the air?

The Wisconsin conservative talk radio show hosts are guilty of something I've heard them all accuse others of doing before.  They started off with a preconceived notion, (Trump is a clown, buffoon, unqualified, etc.) never questioned the validity of that notion, and continuously attempted to support it.  The problem with this is, if your preconceived notion is incorrect, almost all of your conclusions based upon that notion will be incorrect as well.  It's funny how Belling, Sykes, Weber, and the rest could not see this in themselves.  On the other hand, it's hardest to see your own mistakes.  I'm sure I've made many spelling and grammatical errors writing this piece, but can I see them?  Hell no. ( I think I'm going to use this for an excuse not to proofread this.  Errors be damned, you'll know what I'm trying to say)

This is the reason that the Wisconsin conservative radio talk show hosts have made the following predictions:
  • Trump will never poll above 30, 35,40,45 50%
  • Trump will implode and fade away by August, September, October, November, December, January.  They finally gave up on that one.
  • Trump will never win a significant number of primaries.
  • Trump will never have higher poll numbers that his combined competitors.
And it's also why these predictions are looking less and less likely to be correct.
  • Trump not be the Republican nominee.
  • Trump will never get 1237 delegates.
  • There will be a brokered convention and Trump will not emerge as the nominee. 
  • Trump could never beat Hillary in the general election.
  • Trump would be an awful president.
What may have worked in Wisconsin, isn't working elsewhere.  Voters see through the anti-Trump movement and realize the interests of the anti-Trump crowd are not even close to the same as their own.  It has gotten to the point where #Never Trump only strengthens Trump and adds to his numbers.

Of course the Wisconsin conservative talk radio show hosts may have always known that they started off with an incorrect, preconceived notion about Trump.  They may have been just doing their jobs, you know - doing what they're told to do.  

Do you think this guy is a troll?

For his sake, I hope he is.

I watch a lot of videos on YouTube that focus on the upcoming economic collapse.  Not because I long for the apocalypse, not because I relish the pain and misery.  I watch them desperately hoping that I can come up with anything where the makers of such videos are wrong.  Believe me, I hope, above and beyond all of my other hopes that they are wrong, and I welcome any responses from any of you, telling me that they are.

There is a difference between what I hope and what I think.  I think that they are correct.  How can an economic collapse not occur when we are currently facing:

  • a $20 trillion and growing national debt?
  • hyperinflation of our currency?
  • unchecked immigration?
  • Islamic terrorism?
  • the brink of war in the Middle East?
  • a stock market that is 70% overvalued?
  • a federal government unwilling to control expenses?
  • nearly every economic indicator says it's coming except for those that have been manipulated by our government, like unemployment and the CPI?
Anyway I was watching the Global Economic News, which was reposting a video by the SGT Report, and came across this comment:

I know not what an asset, bubble nor derivatives are. Me and my friends hung out at downtown cigar bars back in 2008 mocking all those white collars who were complaining about the economic "disaster". Everything was just A-OK for me! I never noticed any difference in anything back in 2008. And FYI, I could live more than comfortably off of $2,000.00USDA a month. I wish I made that much. These guys talking are filthy rich and completely disconnected from humanity.   

Now, do you think this guy is a troll?  For his sake, I hope he is.  If he is not he better learn what assets, bubbles and derivatives are.

It really doesn't matter if this guy is a troll or not.  His comment reflects the thinking of the majority of Americans.  Most people have heard about the possibility of an upcoming collapse but make a conscious effort to remain ignorant of its probability and danger. How will they not be swept away?

You may be tempted to say,"Big deal, I have prepared for it", but many of these people are your friends, relatives, and neighbors.  People you care about.  People you will have to witness suffering, and even worse, deny mercy if and when the collapse occurs.  This is not going to be fun, even for those of us who have prepared for it.

If there is not a good probability of an upcoming economic collapse, why are there so few stories/videos refuting it?  I understand that bad news sells better than good, but have a look for yourself.  It's easier to find stories/videos that claim the earth is flat that it is to find ones that say "Don't worry about the economy. Everything's going to be just fine."

I also understand that many of the people writing these stories and making these videos are trying to sell you something or just trying to promote themselves, but what if they're right?

Once again, I encourage any of you to send me a comment/link telling me that I am wrong.  I will gladly read and consider it, and the more convincing it is, the gladder I will be.

One last thing for those of you who are like me (charter members of the Chicken Little fan club), my favorite doom and gloom YouTube channel is the X22 Report. 


I might be anti-Trump too if I was paid to be.

Why are so many conservative pundits, journalists, bloggers, etc. so anti-Trump?  

Why have they been fighting harder against him than I have ever seen them fight against any Democrat?

What do they have to lose by at least being fair to Trump?  They all have supported Republican candidates in the past who did not win the nomination.  It's not like their pay depends upon backing or trashing any particular candidate - or maybe it does.

‘Sesame Street’ Unveils Hijab-Clad Muppet: ‘Zari’ Is A Feminist From Afghanistan

Sesame Street unveiled a fresh face Thursday: a hijab-wearing Afghani Muppet named Zari who will teach kids about “girl empowerment, social and emotional wellbeing.”


Did you time yourself?  How long did it take you?  Average irony detection time, after just glancing at the article is 3.8 nanoseconds.

  Of course, Sesame Street and muppets don't exactly reflect reality.  Here's a more realistic picture or what a  feminist from the Middle East looks like:


At least with muppets, you can just sew those severed heads back on.

Anyway, if you did sense the irony within the blink of an eye, you may be ready for the intermediate levels.

Feminists hype "college rape culture" but remain silent on Islamic violence towards women.
source: The College Fix

Hey American feminists: This is what ‘rape culture’ really looks like

Compare ISIS sex slaves to way in which U.S. colleges define rape. The results are disgusting. 
“Rape culture” — what does it look like?
It looks like an ISIS fatwa that details the regulations in which its followers are asked to consider when raping their female “slaves.”
Among the rules: You can only rape a mother, or daughter, but not both. You can only rape one sister, not two. A father and son cannot both rape the same woman. But wait, there’s a proviso to that. If the father sells the woman to his son, the son can then rape her.
Raping children is also acceptable: “It is permissible to have intercourse with the female slave who hasn’t reached puberty, if she is fit for intercourse.”

Free People are NOT Equal

Equal People are NOT Free.

There are tons of good blog posts out there.  Occasionally, I run across one that is fantastic.  Check this out from Conservative Blogs Central

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

The definition of the word Conundrum is: something that is puzzling or confusing.

Free people are not equal. Equal people are not free. (Think this one over and over…makes sense!)

"A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again."

Here are six Conundrums of socialism in the United States of America:

1. America is capitalist and greedy - yet half of the population is subsidized.

2. Half of the population is subsidized - yet they think they are victims.

3. They think they are victims - yet their representatives run the government.

4. Their representatives run the government - yet the poor keep getting poorer.

5. The poor keep getting poorer - yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.

6. They have things that people in other countries only dream about - yet they want America to be more like those other countries
Think about it! And that, my friends, pretty much sums up the USA in the 21st Century.  Makes you wonder who is doing the math.

These three, short sentences tell you a lot about the direction of our current government and cultural environment:

1. We are advised to NOT judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.

Funny how that works. And here's another one worth considering…

 2. Seems we constantly hear about how Social Security is going to run out of money. But we never hear about welfare or food stamps running out of money !   What's interesting is the first group "worked for" their money, but the second didn't.

Think about it.....and Last but not least :

3. Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, no pay raises for our military and cutting our army to a level lower than before WWII, but we are not stopping the payments or benefits to illegal aliens.

Am I the only one missing something?

Quitcher bitchin', Bernie Supporters

The argument can be made that Bernie Sanders and his supporters have worked hard for the Democratic Nomination while Hillary and her supporters have just laid back and expected that she will just win the nomination without doing any hard work at all.  

With Bernie winning state primaries while Hillary picks up super delegates, it appears that that is exactly what is going to happen.

This seems to be irritating Bernie Sanders and his supporters.

Why?  Isn't what's happening to Bernie exactly what he wants to have happen to the citizens of this country?  Take from those who have worked harder (or been luckier, if you prefer), and give to those who have not worked as hard (or have not been as lucky, if you prefer)?  Isn't that socialism?

Quitcher Bitchin'!  Hillary deserves those super delegates simply because she didn't work as hard (or wasn't as lucky, if you prefer) as Bernie.  If any of you don't agree with that, perhaps you should be rethinking this whole socialism thing.

P.S.  Maybe all you Bernie Supporters should vote Trump.  The anti-Trump conservatives say he's a socialist anyway.

Ah ha! I knew it. I knew it.

I've suspected since the beginning of Trump's campaign that most of the conservative anti-Trump pundits, journalists, and big bloggers have been bribed, black mailed, extorted, coerced, or otherwise encouraged into taking their anti-Trump stances.  Here's the first proof and I'm certain there will be more proof coming.

BUSTED: Erick Erickson’s Website Caught Taking Paul Singer Money To Bash Trump

Pundit Erick Erickson’s The Resurgent website got 10K from anti-Trump, Paul Singer-funded Our Principle PAC in their latest FEC reported, can report.
The funding from the neoconservative billionaire wasn’t disclosed to Erickson’s readers at the new venture.
I've said it before, and I'll say it again.  Trump isn't perfect, but he's at least as competent and knowledgeable as his competition.  Why would you try to derail the clear front runner of the party you claim to support unless there was something in it for you?  

My Biggest Fear

My biggest fear.  If you've been reading this blog for some time you might guess that it would be the inevitable upcoming economic collapse.    

It's not.  We can all as individuals, prepare for that. We can take steps to avoid losing everything for which we worked our entire lives.

It is the loss of freedom that historically always comes in the wake of wars, market crashes, and other crises at the hands of our elected leaders.

Expect another huge loss of freedom to come after the next stock market crash.  The video below mentions this along with pointing out that this crash is coming soon, it will be devastating, and the current stock market bubble was made possible by our government's policies.  

Check out this video to see how wars that were supposed to "protect our freedom" ended up costing us our freedom in the end.

Only cavemen were totally free.  Governments cannot grant freedom to anyone.  They can only take it away.

Government is a necessary evil. The only way you can control tyranny it is to limit the size of government.  Our founding fathers understood this.  Their descendants forgot it.  We'll pay for it, with our freedom, fortune, and lives.

Freedom is the most valuable thing a human being can have, yet western societies have treated it the same way a person treats a poorly made luxury car - Pay dearly for it in the beginning, enjoy it for a few years, neglect it for a few more years, and end up just giving it away in the end.

When this happens here

It will be because the only man who expressed any interest in actually doing something to prevent it, had his campaign derailed by members of his own party, and the blame will lie squarely with them.

Muslims March in Germany Chanting “With Allah’s Help, We Shall Conquer You” (VIDEO)

They seem to be assimilating quite well, no?
Muslims march down a German street chanting, “With Allah’s help, we shall conquer you!”
I'll be the first to admit that Trump isn't perfect, but he is the only one committed to making the problems that we can actually solve, a priority.
We absolutely can build a wall on our southern border.
We absolutely can put a stop to immigration (Both legal and illegal.), and resume sensible immigration policies once we get things sorted out.
If we don't get these two things taken care of, nothing else is going to matter.
A financial collapse is looming above our heads.  We must address these issues before it occurs. 
 We're running out of time. To anyone who understand this, most of the criticism of Trump is irrelevant.
