Just Another Inept Opinion

IMF Managing Director, Christine Lagarde today stated that she felt that President Trump’s speech before the United Nations was primarily rhetoric and was reckless.

She claims to have been in Korea and seen what they face in that country and that the speech did nothing but inflame the problems they are experiencing.

“I’m not particularly interested in rhetoric’s. I’m far more interesting in the realities,” she said.

This is most interesting when one considers this woman “realities” include being successfully prosecuted for Crimes in France. The Cour de Justice de la République, a French court that considers cases against current and former government ministers, found Ms. Lagarde guilty of criminal charges linked to the misuse of public funds when she was France’s finance minister nearly a decade ago. But the court did not impose a fine or a sentence.

The mere fact that she is still the Managing Director of the IMF or International Monetary Fund makes one wonder if the IMF is inept or a bundle of thieves. It also calls to question why CBS seems to have been so enthralled by her presence and seemed to Charm the celebrated socialist Charlie Rose who couldn’t seem to get enough of her. Guess like minds stick together.

Here we have CBS again interviewing people of questionable character who are giving opinions on the performance of a sitting president! To what end?

I think that if CBS is feverishly searching for any possible issues with the POTUS and they should at least ask questions of someone who actually knows how this country is run; stop bringing in low level heads of organizations that have nothing to do with the the United States except for trying to inject their own politics or agenda.

Clearly, this visit was turned into a POTUS bashing event for the CBS morning dregs and they continually do things of this nature to try and make up negative press about our president. In my opinion, Ms. Lagarde would be better served trying to improve the lot of her French compatriots perhaps by replacing the “Mis-Handled” funds that disappeared on her watch or maybe doing some community service to atone for her mis-deeds.

Either way, we do not need people of different countries coming here to critique the performance of our President especially when they have issues of their own that should be dealt with. Many of a highly questionable nature.

Ms. Lagarde would have had more credibility if she resigned from the IMF and the IMF, if they removed her if she refused to go. Perhaps she used some trump card to keep her planted at the Helm of the IMF but one wonders what the next mis-step will be taken by this woman and how far she will continue mis-stepping before they actually do something about it?

Again, one mans opinion

 

 

 

 

The Dream Act

This morning President Trump stated that the Dream Act, signed into law by Mr. Obama through executive order was unconstitutional and therefore illegal.

He went further to say that if this was something that was meant to be permanent it should have been addressed by congress not just allowed to continue indefinitely which is what has happened with this act and many from the last administration.

“Perhaps the best way to handle this would be to have these young people go into a program where they join the Armed services of the United States and be offered a deal wherein, they serve their tour, receive an education through the branch that they serve and leave with an honorable discharge, degree and Citizenship”.

This drew the immediate ire of those who feel that they should be allowed to just come in, stay, protest and take advantage of our country at will.

What is amusing is that the group that picketed the White House numbered just over 30 people which indicates that these same people who claim they want to be allowed to stay, don’t have the character or conviction to show up in support of this act and their alleged rights as illegal aliens.

 

In pondering the Presidents idea on the issue it dawned on me that his solution is quite brilliant. Young people who in many cases come from broken homes, naturally through no fault of their own, are here and a burden on the taxpayer of the country.

By requiring service in our military, these same young people would learn responsibility, learn the meaning of being a citizen, would have served their new future country, been given an education that would prepare them for going into the “New World” as contributing members of society and would receive their citizenship instantly upon successfully completing the program.

Taxpayer money would be being spent on a completely positive result and no taxing the populous for young people who might not succeed on their own.

One thing is certain, the population paying taxes and working in this country would be better served if these same young people would come into the country legally, offering some benefit to their neighbors and society instead of simply wanting to stay because they want to, offering nothing to this country in return.

In my mother’s family, my uncles were Canadian citizens and when they came to this country, they entered the armed forces, United States Army Airborne, served full tours and became citizens after they returned. They gave of their time to their new home and there is no reason why these young people shouldn’t do the same.

Perhaps the powers that be should consider some of the ideas our new POTUS has presented with an open mind instead of a partisan malice. Clearly, this idea has merit and for those young people to say it’s unfair and demand free reign indicates that these are likely not people we want or need in America after all.

 

One Mans Opinion

 

 

ANTIFA FINALLY SEEN AS THUGS

This is today’s entry on my blog “The Constitutional Hawk” which contains a repost of my friend Bill O’Reilly who speculates as to the turn by Democrats and left wing groups away from ANTIFA labeling them violent thugs. Even Nancy Pelosi called them out and this is what Bill thinks is happening. Good reading, Enjoy!

There was this astounding headline Monday in the Washington Post: “Black-clad antifa members attack peaceful right-wing demonstrators in Berkeley.”

Put aside the question of how the Post determined that the demonstrators were “right-wing.” What makes the headline remarkable is that a major liberal newspaper finally and accurately denounced the thugs. Antifa may be short for “anti-fascist,” but it is in fact just the opposite.

The Los Angeles Times soon chimed in, decrying “violence by far-left protesters.” And on MSNBC, of all places, Joe Scarborough blasted the antifa goons as “fascists in their behavior.”

A few far-left politicians have also joined the anti-antifa chorus. Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin, who actually applauded the mob that shut down Milo Yiannopoulos in February, now wants antifa officially classified as a gang. “They come dressed in uniforms,” he observed, “and they have weapons, almost like a militia.” Hey, Mayor Arreguin, good of you to finally notice.

And the most stunning turnaround came Tuesday, when Democrat Nancy Pelosi issued a statement condemning the “people calling themselves antifa.” She added that they “deserve unequivocal condemnation.”

What makes all this notable is that just over a week ago Reuters referred to the antifa agitators as “peace activists,” while Democrats refused to say anything mean about the masked warriors. So what happened to turn the tide? Let us put forth some educated speculation.

First, professor and philosopher Noam Chomsky openly questioned antifa’s goals and tactics. Chomsky, always anti-capitalist and often anti-American, has been the guru of the radical left for decades. When he speaks, progressives listen.

Two weeks ago Chomsky described antifa as “a miniscule fringe of the Left,” and called their violence “a major gift to the right.” The professor also hammered antifa for shutting down speakers with whom it disagrees.

A few days later, professor and attorney Alan Dershowitz, another lion of the left, warned that antifa-like groups are “trying to tear down America.” He denigrated antifa as “radical, anti-American, anti-free market, socialist, communist, hard left censorial organization.”

All this criticism was pre-Berkeley, which was another black mark against the black clad antifa crew. Last weekend the left-wing gangsters assaulted a handful of people who gathered in Berkeley to march against Marxism.

The antifa radicals, their faces masked as always, chased and beat down people whom they considered Trump supporters. It was an especially ugly scene, even by antifa standards, after which more than a dozen radicals were arrested.

If antifa and other self-styled anti-fascist groups occupied the moral high ground after Charlottesville, they surrendered it last weekend in Berkeley.

But perhaps the biggest reason for the recent opinion shift is old-fashioned politics. Democrats can read polls as well as anyone else, probably better. They know that most Americans do not are repulsed by masked marauders running wild in the streets. That could explain Nancy Pelosi’s surprising statement. She desperately wants a Democratic majority in 2018, and she won’t get it by ignoring or endorsing violence.

In the Senate, the two darlings of the far left – Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders – have yet to call out antifa by name, although Senator Sanders did speak out against lefties who shout down campus speakers.

Antifa will always have supporters, especially on elite campuses. A Dartmouth lecturer named Mark Bray has become a frequent guest on mainstream networks, where he rationalizes and defends violence. Dartmouth’s president actually criticized Bray for “supporting violent protest,” a rare show of courage from a university administrator. Naturally, the left-wing Dartmouth faculty was angry not with Bray, but with the president.

But college professors aside, antifa may have overplayed its ugly hand with all the recent violence and vitriol. Pay close attention the next time there are masked antifa protesters fomenting violence and pelting cops with urine.

Law enforcement, which once looked the other way, might step in to quickly stop the madness. And Democrats, who were once acquiescent, might rise up in unison to denounce antifa.

That may be wishful thinking, but it would be a very welcome sign in extremely troubled times.

ANTIFA – Domestic Terrorists?

Recently we witnessed a clash between Pro-White extremists and another group claiming to be peaceful protesters creating near riot conditions in Charlottesville.

The POTUS remarked quite accurately that the clashes were not ONLY the fault of the White Power side but also the Radical Left side (ANTIFA) who were photographed wearing riot gear, carrying clubs and attacking with even more ferocity that that of those having the rally.

First, the constitution protects the rights of any group who wishes to peacefully assemble no matter what their political views are. The group who was having the rally in Charlottesville had the constitutional right to do so as long as proper permits were secured and the law was obeyed.

What we are now seeing is the rise of a radical, Ultra Left Wing group, ANTIFA who uses violence, vandalism and deprivation of others Constitutional rights claiming that they are an Anti Fascist, peaceful group when in fact they are responsible for many crimes upon society, none of which have been addressed properly by our Police or Judiciary.

This same group seems to be committing these acts with impunity and as they’re numbers grow, likewise the violence and destruction grows. They claim to be committing these acts to protect civil rights but their actions continually deprive fellow citizens of their own civl rights.

Law enforcement should be acting now, prosecuting these violent acts as hate crimes, on both sides if the laws of the land are broken.
Political Correctness is just that, something a political group brought to being thinking it would solve racial tensions but has now morphed into yet another hate group claiming to be the opposite of what they really are. And make no mistake about it, the acts of these groups are just as radical, just as racist, just as violent and ultimately just as dangerous to our way of life and the Constitution by which we all live.

I hope that the powers that be understand that no one groups opinion matters here, just like all lives matter in a democracy, not just one group, All.

Any violence that leads to destruction of property, assault or loss of life during actions by radical groups are hate crimes and should be prosecuted as such, swiftly and with maximum penalty. Again, no person or group has the right to deprive other Americans of their rights and the governments main job is to protect the Constitution and uphold those laws protecting its citizens. There can be no other way, no halfway, no bargaining with regard to the rights of all and our Constitution and these groups need to be considered Domestic Terrorists. Mark my words, if just a few of these radicals were dealt with as hate criminals and sentenced as such, 20 odd years hard time, actions like this would cease immediately. Rioting and vandalism is fun as long as you don’t get caught and have to pay seems to be the rallying cry of many in this group. Perhaps when they realize that their neighbors don’t agree with these actions and are willing to provide an “Attitude Adjustment” or decades long “Time Out” they’ll understand this is not acceptable behavior. One can only hope.

Dershowitz: Far-left bigots want to ‘tear down America’

Liberal jurist calls out American left for ignoring ‘bigoted’ far-left extremists.

Professor Alan Dershowitz

Professor Alan Dershowitz

While pundits across the political spectrum criticized President Trump’s initial response to the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia earlier this month, one prominent left-leaning American jurist and lifelong Democrat is calling out the progressive-left for its own failure to condemn violent extremism.

Alan Dershowitz, a famed defense attorney and professor emeritus at Harvard Law School, criticized President Trump’s response to the killing of a demonstrator in Charlottesville by a white supremacist, writing in The Algemeiner that the president “has a special obligation to single out for condemnation… individuals and groups that claim… to speak in his name.”

But Dershowitz also noted that the American left had largely failed in this regard as well, with mainstream liberals increasingly “willing to excuse” the “anti-liberal bigotry” of “hard-left violent bigots, like the Antifa protest movement.

Speaking on Fox News last week, Dershowitz accused the American far-left of seeking to “tear down America”.

“Many of these people, not all of them, many of these people are trying to tear down America,” Dershowitz said of the Antifa movement. “A radical American, anti-free market communist, socialist, hard-left organization that tries to stop speakers on campuses from speaking. They use violence and just because they’re opposed to fascism and to some of these monuments shouldn’t make them heroes of the liberals.”

Touching on the recent efforts by Antifa activists to vandalize or remove statues of not only Confederate leaders but also America’s Founding Fathers and Christopher Columbus, Dershowitz compared the far-left to Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin.

“The idea of willy-nilly going through and doing what Stalin did, just erasing history and rewriting it to serve current purposes, does pose a danger.”

Yawky Way No More

More Politically Correct Madness!

Its being suggested that Yawkey Way, The iconic short street so named For Bob Yawkey in front of Fenway park is now under attack.
Apparently, this after David Price complained that he heard fans in the stands using racially insensitive chants!
Its entirely understandable, to quote Bill Speros, “David Price, who apparently is both racially oppressed and the recipient of the richest contract in Boston sports history, claims he heard racist taunts last year while warming up in the bullpen at Fenway. The next time Price warms up at the ballpark, the profanity and vitriol directed his way will be 100-percent performance- and personality-based. Guaranteed!”
Yes, now BaseBall’s Elite are Repressed, Oppressed and Depressed over the “Deplorable” racially divided state Boston is in.
It’s getting so the Liberal Elitists want this country to have no semblance of itself at all. No history, no art, no independent thought, nothing that symbolizes what this country is all about.
Folks, this is nothing more than a spoiled, overly paid player taking advantage of the current state of racial divide to take away from his lousy performance but it does reflect the mindset of the so call racially sensitive, politically correct, socialist elite’s who want nothing more that to keep those they’ve fooled, brainwashed and those who know better at a safe distance.
If Fenway cave’s, which looks as though it is, then they just set the game back to the likes of when Jackie Robinson broke into the sport. I suppose what goes around goes out but anyone with any bit of common sense MUST see what this is all about.
Perhaps as a friend said yesterday, we must “evolve” from where we are.
So be it, we can take out the Washington, Lincoln and Jefferson memorials to use for parking space sadly lacking in DC. The memorials to our war dead, Dr. King, hell, turn Arlington into a golf course.
We can remove all the memorials to those who died on 911 in New York because parking and real estate there is at a premium and we could certainly profit by it.
Destroy museums and art galleries because who really cares about art and demand our colleges teach our young minds to assimilate into the politically correct, zombie like state, following only the voice of the elite socialist, learning nothing because independent thought isn’t allowable and certainly, thinking anything not politically correct cannot be tolerated.
Bring back full frontal lobotomies for those who don’t or won’t assimilate because they can’t be controlled.
And there you have The Evolved New World! Do you like it?
Hope you do because if you don’t, you will not be tolerated!
 
Oh, I forgot, this all started because of an alleged lack of tolerance.

CNN, News Outlet or Anarchists

In an effort to “Round Up” all the Confederate Statues in the United States, CNN has offered a map of 1500 for would be anarchists to lessen the difficulty of finding and destroying them.
Likewise that have posted a map with all the locations of whom they deem as hate groups! To make it easier to “Cleanse” you towns.
Thank you CNN for all your help in bringing National Socialism to our country and inciting yet more violence and destruction in the name of the Politically Correct.
Further, thank you for taking an active role in an anarchistic move to cause attacks on groups that you disagree with!
One note must be considered, if we are to tear down any monument to the past, then we must tear down ALL monuments in order to be truly equal.
Since the tearing down of Civil War historical monuments, there has been an increase in the tearing down of monuments with what we used to think were of utmost importance.
CNN also reported in a small, obscure location that a Boston Holocaust memorial was destroyed by a 17 year old who allegedly got the idea from? You guessed it, THE MEDIA!
Yes, thanks to the media we have people now attacking monuments to the victims of the Nazi’s and National Socialism!
This is a bit ironic because we have the same type of people today trying to censor history on news, cleanse society, destroy the past and kill off anyone who opposes them.
To CNN I say, be careful what you wish for, many of those people who oppose you and those like you are watching and they know full well what your aim is.
To the current administration, Mr. POTUS, you now have sufficient evidence that CNN is only posing as a news outlet, their main intent is anarchy and the destruction of anything they disagree with, its unconstitutional and its also a crime.
I believe its time we hold the media LEGALLY responsible for any and all crimes committed due to media interference with the running of our country and civilly for any damages done in their name.

Robert E. Lee – Union Hero

A bit of History by a Patriot from my Second Home State of Massachusetts. Thank you for you lesson, perhaps those Americans who can still enjoy reading will get some benefit from this!

 

THE REAL STORY OF “ROBERT E LEE” THESE LIBERALS ARE SUCH IDIOTS!! I’m a “BLUE BLOOD” YANKEE FROM MARBLEHEAD MASSACHUSETTS: A 6th Generation American Patriot.

Here is a Little lesson in history~

Robert E lee was married to George Washington’s granddaughter. He worked with Grant during the Mexican-American war and became a decorated war hero defending this country He believed slavery was a great evil and his wife broke the law by teaching slaves to read and write. After the civil war he worked with Andrew Johnson’s program of reconstruction. He became very popular with the northern states and the Barracks at West Point were named in his honor in 1962. He was a great man who served this country his entire life in some form or other. His memorial is now being called a blight. No American military veteran should be treated as such. People keep yelling, “You can’t change history.” Sadly you can. This is no better than book burnings. ISIS tried rewriting history by destroying historical artifacts. Is that really who we want to emulate?
As they tear down this “blight” keep these few historical facts in your mind. No military veteran and highly decorated war hero should ever be treated as such. This is not Iraq and that is not a statue of Sadam.

IN ADDITION: Lee was also very torn about the prospect of the South leaving the Union. His wife’s grandfather George Washington was a huge influence on him. He believed that ultimately, states rights trumped the federal government and chose to lead the Southern army. His estate, Arlington, near Washington DC was his home and while away fighting the war, the federal government demanded that Lee himself pay his taxes in person. He sent his wife but the money was not accepted from a woman. When he could not pay the taxes, the government began burying dead Union soldiers on his land. The government is still burying people there today. It is now called Arlington National Cemetery. DO THEY WANT TO TEAR THAT UP ALSO??

NAFTA FAIR?

Today there was an obscure reference in the news that the Trump Administration is demanding concessions of Mexico and Canada to NAFTA after a review of the concessions showed an overwhelming deficit.

This was yet another of the issues brought up by President Trump with regard to lopsided business deals that are not in the best interest of this country but benefit other countries over our own.

Clearly, this administration understands the art of the business deal and further is moving in a direction that will improve our lot in this country.

What is most interesting is that the former POTUS, Obama stated that Trump would be dismantling a quote, “Good Deal for Us!” Good deal indeed.

Obama himself promised sweeping changes to NAFTA in his second campaign but his promise never came to fruition.

In a Politico post it was reported “It’s true that Obama has been harshly critical of NAFTA on the campaign trail, citing shortfalls in its protections for workers and the environment. He has used words like “devastating” and “a big mistake” to describe the agreement.

Obama was particularly critical of NAFTA in February in the run-up to the Ohio Democratic primary. In a debate, he said, “We should use the hammer of a potential opt-out as leverage to ensure that we actually get labor and environmental standards that are enforced.”

In a June 20, 2008 conference call with reporters, Obama surrogate Sen. Sherrod Brown, the Ohio Democrat, said he was “absolutely confident Barack Obama will reopen the negotiations on NAFTA. I have been assured by him and his top economic advisers there is no question his position is constant and will stay that way on the North American Free Trade Agreement.”

What we can take from this is that the former POTUS either never intended to change NAFTA, wasn’t able to change NAFTA or really didn’t care about NAFTA then but now believes that NAFTA was a “Good Deal.” Another promise of the former administration being kept by the current.

It should be noted that workers in Mexico say if the NAFTA agreement is going to be changed and no longer benefit Mexico more than the United States, they prefer the agreement to be scrapped completely! This from average Mexicans workers who can recognize that NAFTA was a great deal for them and to change it would remove that advantage.

So, another of the outgoing administrations “Great Deals” or “Good Stuff” actually did not benefit the United States but the other countries who on the other side of the handshake.

 

Fake News? Fact Checkers?

I was recently queried about the story that Congress members kids were exempt from paying student loans.

I was told that alleged news checking sources like Fact Checker and Snope’s stated that this was a hoax.

Well, it’s not a hoax and it was easy to prove.

I checked the United States Budget Report for last fiscal year and it showed $82,000,000.00 dollars in expenditures for “Federal Employee” student loan relief.
As the ranking Federal Employee’s, Congress members have the first opportunity at student loan relief.
Fact Checker, Snopes and other so called unbiased fact checking sites cannot be trusted.
This is a reflection of the “Fake News” our POTUS speaks of on an almost daily basis.
It’s true.

This brings up another point that I have been making for years, we as a people are too complacent, too lazy to even check on what our elected public servants are doing in the offices we entrust to them.

They consistently allow themselves perks and benefits that are far above what the average American citizen will enjoy. Why? What makes them “entitled” to better health care, better benefits, higher salaries without performing their duties?  Why should they enjoy full salary and insurance for life after only one term in office?

This country was based on the premise that WE are in charge, not them. Clearly they disagree and fancy themselves rulers. This is indicated by the constant attempts at removing the Second Amendment which allows us arms to prevent a hostile government from ever ruling us as the British King did. They have made attempts at censoring the First Amendment in an effort to control what information is being fed to a clueless electorate.

Finally, they decide when they will show up to vote on any legislation, absent if they feel is not partisan. It is NOT their choice when they should attend session, it is NOT their party that is in charge and it is NOT what we elected them to do. Their FIRST duty is to the people and we have let them get away with this for far too long.

In the private sector, one would be dismissed from their job very quickly by performing to the standard our congress members seem to think is acceptable.

They have put themselves above the law being able to insider trade, a twenty year sentence for an average American, they are immune to prosecution for sexual harassment and crimes that beggar the imagination.

There has been talk of a new Amendment to the constitution demanding that Congress members be held to the same laws and benefits as we the people, their boss’s are and its high time we take control of this situation before they vote themselves into the positions of rulers. It’s still our country…..at least for now.

The Attack on the First Amedment

Right after stating the Political Correctness is out of control comes this latest item.
Instagam is introducing a “TOOL” that will remove conversations that it deems insensitive or mean spirited and promote those it deems positive and for the better good of those using the service.
I just deleted my Instagram account and suggest everyone else do so as well.
The fact that Instagram is owned by the Facebook people shows that Mr. Zuckerberg is also a Socialist, Politically Correct fellow.
Here comes censorship people and guess what, even the Socialist Charlie Rose admitted it sounded like the service is trying to censor free speech! Well Rose for once, we agree on something.
If Instagram wants to censor what it feels are bad comment and support and promote what it feels are good comments, they are against the whole premise of the first amendment and are in violation of that same amendment..
So, they already have started dismantling the Second, attacked the Eighth and Fourteenth amendments, now they are coming for the first.
No surprise that Rose is so worried, means our boy and those like him may be on their was out.
