After almost 8 years of an Obama administration, what message has he sent to the American people about themselves and their role in the world. I’ve made a short list of how Obama and the liberal media want you to feel as an American:
1. Like a second class citizen
2. Ashamed of our heritage
3. Ashamed of the Founding Fathers
4. Like America does not matter any longer, and the notion of a nation state is an outdated relic
5. That we should put our needs second before the world’s
6. Our Judeo-Christian values a bigoted and should be thrown away
7. That we should all play the role of a victim
8. America has done much evil in the world
9. Our money and hard work means nothing
10. We owe the world something
11. Our NATO allies are evil colonialist and we should mow befriend countries like Iran
12. We are too weak to stand up to aggression by the Chinese, Russians or North Koreans
13. Our military is evil and should be downsized
14. Capitalism is evil
Donald Trumps’ foreign policy speech on 4/27/16 was a major turning point in the USA’s stance on both herself and the world. First of all, it was completely refreshing to hear Trump trumpet America First and embrace Western culture. For the first time in a while being an American and embracing Western immigrant/Judeo-Christian values felt really good. Between both Obama and the media berating us every day about our heritage, our beliefs, our religion, and our history, it was rejuvenating to hear Trump speak of America and her accomplishment with pride! Just because they hate America does not mean I must also!
Over the past 8 years, you were called a xenophobe, racist, bigot, or nativist for doing such a thing. We should feel good about being an American and all that we bring and have brought to the world. We should embrace not only our rich heritage but also look forward to our prosperous future. Obama has attempted to take that all away from us. No longer. There will be a new sheriff in town soon!
How many times now must we look at our national flag flying at half-mast, lamenting over a recent tragedy? It almost seems as if it flies in this position permanently. With atrocities being committed against Christian, helpless civilians, and other minorities occurring by the day, it has become commonplace to turn on the news and hear of some horrible incident. With the recent bombing of Pakistani Christians, mostly woman and children, in a park after Easter mass, the bashing of the nuns’ skulls in Yemen, the priest crucified in Yemen, or just another bombing or mass shooting, we are almost becoming numb to the constant atrocities.
The United Nations Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide defines “genocide” as killing and certain acts “committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group. Isn’t this exactly what is occurring to Christians and other minorities in The Middle East? ISIS’ magazine, Dabiq, calls on the destruction of the “Crusader army”. Plus, their videos encourage the killing of priests and Christians. Their plan is to eradicate Catholicism from its birthplace in The Middle East and destroy our entire Western civilization.
I am pleased to be a member of The Knights of Columbus. As Obama had laid a deaf ear to all Christians in The Middle East, The Knights provided the State Department with a nearly 300-page report filled with compelling evidence that genocide is occurring against Christians as well as other religious minorities. These atrocities included assassinations of Church leaders, mass murders and deportations, torture, kidnapping for ransom, sexual enslavement and systematic rape of girls and women, forcible conversions to Islam, and destruction of Christian churches, monasteries, cemeteries, and artifacts.
After much work by The Knights’ CEO Carl Anderson and other members, Secretary of State, John Kerry, finally declared that ISIS (or as he foolishly says Daesh) is committing genocide against Christians, Yazidis and Shiite Muslims. However, this is only the first step. Unfortunately, this condemnation does nothing to solve the problem. He declared what most of us knew for over a year. Plus, his words ring hallow as there is no action behind them. At this point you must ask yourselves, is this the new norm? Will we just accept what is occurring and issue idle warnings to our enemies, paint a picture over our Facebook picture, hashtag the atrocities in disgust, and lower our flags to half-mast? Is appeasement and apathy the new norm? Well, it seems that is the society we live in now.
Fueled by political correctness, secularism, and an American President with un-American values, we are now reaching a critical point in humanity’s history. Will we revert back to 9th century barbarism or fight to restore our Liberty and our future generations’ safety. It is the question we must all ask ourselves right now. Those that do not answer it are letting the terrorists win. Those that are apathetic are letting the terrorists win. Don’t stand idly by. Talk to your Congressman. Support organizations like The Knights. Let your voice be heard before it’s too late!
As people flew down to the annual American Enterprise Institute (AEI) meeting on a private island off the coast of Georgia, it reminded me of a who’s who list of the rich and powerful. The leaders of the Republican party included Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan, and Karl Rove among others bellied up with the richest of the rich including Apple CEO Tim Cook, Google co-founder Larry Page, Napster creator and Facebook investor Sean Parker, and SpaceX and Tesla CEO Elon Musk. Before continuing, I must ask is this entire meeting a slap in the face of every legal American in this country? Is this what our forefathers envisioned? The answer is a resounding no! If the Republican elite had any respect for the American voter and their populist choice, shouldn’t they be supporting Trump or possibly Cruz instead of hobnobbing with those with the largest pockets? It only proves who really has the ear of our elected Republicans in office. Clearly it is not the working man or woman of this great country.
Those at the AEI meeting unmistakably understand one simple fact—that Donald Trump or possibly is a viable threat to their borderless, cheap labor, big business, world economy agenda propagated by the minions of sheep they have financed to win seats in both the Legislative and Executive branches of our country. And who is the biggest, sellout sheep they are prodding along like a mindless puppet influenced by desires of power and money? It’s none other than our prior Tea Party Golden Boy Marco Rubio. Remember Rubio entered the Senate preaching the Tea Party doctrine which is as follows:
1. Illegal aliens are here illegally.
2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable.
3. A strong military is essential.
4. Special interests must be eliminated.
5. Gun ownership is sacred.
6. Government must be downsized.
7. The national budget must be balanced.
8. Deficit spending must end.
9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal.
10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must.
11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory.
12. Political offices must be available to average citizens.
13. Intrusive government must be stopped.
14. English as our core language is required.
15. Traditional family values are encouraged.
Despite The Tea Party fighting for Marco Rubio’s entrance into the Senate, Rubio has displayed where is his true allegiance lies—not to the Tea Party members or the working American citizen but instead to big business and the global elite. The disastrous Gang of Eight of bill, his no show vote for the 1.1 Trillion dollar Omibus bill which funded Obama’s agenda and big business interests, his support for illegal immigrant and unfettered immigration, and his denouncing public broadband while promoting the interests of AT&T all clearly show where his interests lie—BIG Business.
Unfortunate for the American citizen, Rubio continues to do the bidding of the financial elite. Just ask yourself, is there any reason he is still in the race? Real Clear Politics have his numbers almost 25 points below Trump in some Florida polls. Plus, the irony is, this is the only state left that he has any chance in winning. So why is he still running when there is absolutely no path for evident path for him to the White House and remaining in the race will only continue to make him look stupid?
The answer is that he is propped by the financial elite like a mindless puppet just waiting to do their bidding, no matter what the consequences. If Trump or Cruz do not achieve the magic 1237 delegates needed, the convention could become contested, whereby all the delegates become “free agents” able to vote for whomever they please. It is the same reason Kasich remains in the race. In a contested convention, outliers like Rubio, Kasich or even Romney could possibly be ushered in as the Republican nominee if the majority of delegated vote for them—despite popular support. If that happens, the only people who will win are the financial elite while leaving the vast majority of American voters disenfranchised, at the mercy of big business, and without any say in government.

A recent event made me recall the history of the Plymouth colony’s survival in the new world of North America. Let me first recant the true story of Plymouth, Massachusetts in the 1620’s as written by then Governor William Bradford in Of Plymouth Plantation.
After the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth in 1620, they enjoyed their first harvest of corn in 1621 and had a feast at that time to celebrate the occasion. Today, we remember this event as Thanksgiving Day. However, that is where the story ends in most text books and the real story begins.
When the Plymouth colony began, it was based upon a communal farming system whereby nobody owned the land and all farming duties were shared equally by the male colonist. However, by 1623, Governor Bradford realized this agrarian utopia as later envision by Lenin, Marx, Obama, and Sanders was a complete failure and the colony was starving as a result. Just like in Jamestown, there was not enough food to sustain the townspeople through the cold winter. It was not until Governor Bradford decided to divide the land into parcels and distribute them to each family that Plymouth became a sustainable colony. This capitalistic change marked a discernable divergence from its unsuccessful socialistic/communistic beginnings.
Once the last was distributed into the hands of its citizens, crops became plentiful. Those men who previously feigned sickness and injury not to work were now toiling the fields with as much stamina as their neighbor. The real lesson learned here is that incentive creates initiative. On the other hand, when incentive is lost, so is initiative and work degrades to the lowest common denominator.
This example plays out time and time again over history and is a warning for those who want to embrace the policies of Chavez in Venezuela or Marx in Russia. Recently, here in the North East there was a large (for this area at least) snow storm. Though the US postal office delivered the mail, the mailman refused to reach out past a certain distance while in the truck to place the mail in the mailbox. As a result, we did not receive mail for days, not understanding why it was not being delivered. I had shoved out the driveway and even the mailbox. The problem was that since the mailman had to reach over some snow to deliver the mail, he decided to hold onto it instead.
However, during this same time, I had UPS packages delivered. The delivery man actually ran through almost 2 feet of snow just to bring the package to my doorstep. Even though the driveway was shoveled to the garage, the package ended up on my door step. This example is the difference between a public verses a private business. If you are thinking of voting for Sanders, Clinton, or any RINO republicans such as Kasich or Rubio, keep this little history lesson in mind.
Did you ever stop and think why outsiders like a Donald Trump or Dr. Carson have gained such popularity? It is also the reason why a politically ostracized senator like Ted Cruz has been making his way up the polls. The bottom line is that we Americans are sick and tired of what these life-long politicians are doing in DC. That is why news outlets such as Breitbart, The Blaze and The Patriot Channel on SiriusXM are gaining popularity at what seems to be an exponential pace. Not only are these agencies correctly articulating the frustrated feelings and sentiments of us Americans but they are offering a non-Left Wing agenda account of current events.
I’ve made a list of why Americans are tired of the politicians in DC and are fervently seeking an outsider to change the increasing broken system in our nation’s capital:
Our vote means nothing. No matter who we vote into office, Republican or Democrat, their political agenda benefits them and not their constituents
We are tired of Sanctuary cities
We are tired of our Southern Border being wide open and not controlling who enters our country
We are tired of illegal and some legal immigrants living off the American dime while our brave veterans are dying while waiting to receive medical care
We are tired of how many illegal immigrants have better healthcare than hard working Americans
We are tired of Political Correctness
We are tired of importing refugees and letting illegals into our country who fail to integrate and embrace American culture
We are tired of the entitlement society perpetuated by the government
We are tired of working harder and earning less
We are tired that as the central government grows, our incomes and personal freedoms dwindle
We are tired of improperly vetted refuges with ISIS sympathy or direct ties coming to America
We are tired of voting in Republicans who promise to make change but instead fervently enforce the status quo
We are tired of fighting wars but not winning
We are tired of our hard earned money being squandered by the Feral government
We are tired of the cost of Obamacare and of the increasing cost of our own healthcare which is providing less
We are tired of the diseases brought over to ur country by illegal immigrants (I’ve personally been exposed to TB from an illegal while working in the hospital)
We are tired by the politicians telling us how to live and having them look down their noses at us American people as if we are unintelligent sheep that need to be herded
We are tired of a president who can’t identify the enemy and makes excuses for them instead of eradicating these terrorists before they destroy our country like they are doing to theirs and to Europe
We are tired of the increasing debt of the Federal government and their incompetence to balance the budget
We are tired of the Federal Reserve (who are not even a federal agency or elected into power controlling our financial institutions
We are tired that jobs and manufacturing is going over seas
We are tired of the increasing regulations and taxes that are stifling the growth of our businesses
We are tired of the NSA and spying on us by the Federal government
We are tired how the Provda-like liberal media is covering up for the Progressive in government
We are tired of the IRS and complex tax code, and want the IRS disbanded
We are tired of the growth of the EPA and how they are destroying American businesses
We are tired of our failed Foreign policy that continues to be followed despite its repeated failures
We are tired of a president who defends our enemies yet despises us American citizens our heritage
We are tired of a president who is not proud to be an American
We are tired of America being fundamentally changed
We are tired of safe zones
We are tired of the Constitution being ignored and seen as some sort of interesting relic of the past
We are tired of the government running education
Here are just a few thoughts I rattled off the top of my head. Please add more. This list is just the tip of the iceberg.

As our Congress mulls over how to spend another 1.1 Trillion dollars of hard-earned American money, I watch how our government grows in size and power buy the day. It has become a mammoth leviathan with an insatiable appetite for increasing amounts of dollars. With taxation the only means to feed this monstrosity, our government finds new ways on a daily basis to levy increased taxes and garner more and more of our personal freedoms in the process. As America quickly slides town the path towards socialism similar to a skydiver plummeting to his death without a parachute, I recant some very foreboding warnings by certain notable figures from our past:
“Socialism only works in two places: Heaven where they don’t need it and hell where they already have it.”
“The historical experience of socialist countries has sadly demonstrated that collectivism does not do away with alienation but rather increases it, adding to it a lack of basic necessities and economic inefficiency.”
Pope John Paul II
“Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”
“The inherent vice of capitalism is the unequal sharing of blessings; the inherent virtue of socialism is the equal sharing of miseries.”
“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other peoples’ money.”
