How the U.S. Ruined South Africa (What the Mainstream Media Won’t Report)

The United States, the leader of the free world, a proponent of freedom and democracy, almost signal-handedly pushed South Africa into what is becoming a communist failed state.  Sure, we had help from other do-gooder countries who ganged up on this once jewel of the African continent, in the 1990’s.  However, it never would have happened if we hadn’t led the charge.

It should be no surprise that President Cyril Ramaphosa recently confirmed that his government plans to expropriate private property without compensation.  For the uninitiated this means taking the farms of white landowners and supposedly redistributing them to the black majority in the name of “fairness.”  This will hasten the country’s economic slide that began shortly after the “universal” elections of 2004, that transferred power to the communist-led African National Congress.

Saint Maxine

Maxine Waters never loses an opportunity to urge her followers to keep up their harassment of members of the Trump Administration.

Last week, she took aim at the president again.  “Already, you have members of your Cabinet that are being booted out of restaurants,” she crowed as the crowd erupted, “who have protesters taking up at their house, who say, ‘No peace, no sleep. No peace, no sleep!’”

She went on, “We’re going to win this battle because while you try and quote the Bible, Jeff Sessions (she blames the attorney general for enforcing immigration law) and others, you really don’t know the Bible…God is on OUR Side! On the side of the children, on the side of what’s right!”

Waters has never been shy about using God, the church or little children to rabble rouse in order to increase her name recognition, her coffers or advance one of her pet projects, the latest being open borders. Continue reading “Saint Maxine”

Bigoted Restauranteurs, Unhinged Politicians, and Facebook Rants

When bigoted Stephanie Wilkinson asked Trump Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave her restaurant Friday it touched off a media feeding frenzy and, predictably, caused some political crazies to leave their filthy, hate-filled nests.

The most notable was Representative Maxine Waters (D-CA) who went where no elected representative should ever be allowed to go.  Continue reading “Bigoted Restauranteurs, Unhinged Politicians, and Facebook Rants”

Don’t Be Fooled by Border Hysterics

A mother, who is a U.S. citizen, decides to break into a bank and is captured.  Do you want her children sent to prison with her?   Of course not.  Prison is no place for a child.

A mother from a central Amercian country decides to break into the United States and is caught.   Do you want her children held in detention along with her?  Of course not.  Detention is no a place for children.    Continue reading “Don’t Be Fooled by Border Hysterics”

Is De Niro the New Jane Fonda?

For decades, the political class, as well as other influential people, have observed the maxim “politics stops at the water’s edge.” This simply means that when a president is dealing with a matter of national importance abroad, the criticism stops until the crisis is averted or, at the very least, he is back safety inside the confines of the United States.

With President Trump, that is no longer the case.  The political atmosphere in Washington is so toxic that Democrats, and some members of his own party, feel free to take pot shots at him even as he deals with issues that could avert nuclear war.

However, when Robert De Niro let his distaste of this president spill over at the Tony Awards Sunday night on the eve of his summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un, it not only broke the mold of civility but raised bad taste to a level unseen in prime time, even on an awards show.  While De Niro’s  “F – – – Trump” comment was deleted by an alert executive monitoring the program at CBS, the actor’s unscripted comment went viral prompting outrage from the right and the left.   Continue reading “Is De Niro the New Jane Fonda?”

Where are the Patriots Among the Dreamers? (We need to See them)

Monday was the latest ugly demonstration by the so-called “Dreamers,” the young people who were supposedly brought here by their illegal parents as small children and, we are told, know no other country.  This one was staged to mark the passing of the deadline from President Trump to end the illegal DACA program that Obama created with a stroke of his pen.

Two activist federal judges have issued injunctions blocking his order.   Now we must wait for the program to wind its way up the slow as molasses judicial system to the Supreme Court.  This is cruel and completely unnecessary as President Trump offered a compromise to, not only allow those DACA recipients to stay, but untold numbers of other illegal young people, even those who snuck in on their own claiming to be teenagers.   Additionally, Trump is offering to give them a way to become full-fledged U.S. citizens with all its benefits and privileges, to boot.  Continue reading “Where are the Patriots Among the Dreamers?

Dreamers, Screamers and Schemers

President Trump’s latest immigration offer is baffling to say the least.  After winning a great victory over Democrats in their short-lived government shutdown, Trump appears to have caved.

Despite what the perpetual white-flag-waving Mitch McConnell said about the president’s demands for a DACA deal being unclear, they were understood by most clear-thinking Americans:  amnesty for some 800,000 DACA young people in exchange for funding the border wall, and an end to chain migration and the visa lottery.  All these things were enormously popular with Americans all across the political spectrum, Democrats in Congress excluded who are united on only one thing:  their opposition to Trump.

So why, oh why, did Trump more than double his original offer to include, not only the DACA recipients, but another million or so who couldn’t qualify or wouldn’t bother to qualify for DACA.  Furthermore, he is offering not simple amnesty: the right to stay, live and work in the greatest country on earth, but citizenship to boot.   Continue reading “Dreamers, Screamers and Schemers”
