For at least the first fifteen minutes of her Fox Cable News show, The Kelly File, host Megyn Kelly dwelled ad museum regarding President Elect, Donald Trump’s possible backing off from the prosecution of Hillary Clinton for illegal activities in connection with using a private email server while serving as Secretary of State and the Clinton Foundation.

Ms. Kelly interviewed various individuals and insinuated that Mr. Trump was breaking a major campaign promise in being reluctant to talk about how he might prosecute HRC (Hillary Rodham Clinton). Because this was getting old, I chose to retire to my office and write about it.

I supported Donald Trump, not only because he ran as a Republican and I would rather dress in blue and orange and yell “War Eagle” than vote Democrat, but because he promised to repeal and/or replace Obamacare, to lower the corporate income tax rate, to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, undo all of the executive orders signed by Barak Obama creating burdensome regulations, and destroy ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups.

During the campaign, candidate Donald Trump indicated that he wanted to put Hillary Clinton in jail for her crimes. Chants of “Lock her up” were even heard at many of his rallies. While I think it would be nice to see HRC behind bars, there are other things more important as Donald Trump makes a valiant effort to save this country from the abyss in which Barak Obama had the United States headed.

Let’s be realistic. How many times during the course of your life have you wanted to harm someone, really harm them? Maybe it was a boss, maybe it was a classmate, maybe it was a parent or another family member, or maybe it was a neighbor. It was someone who had “done you wrong” and you were out for revenge.

In my first fiction novel, three classmates of the main character, Kristie, hated her so much that they planned to kidnap her and force her to drink straight whiskey until she passed out. After she passed out, they were going to tie her up and throw her into some snaky woods by a local creek in hope that she would get bit to death by poisonous snakes. When it came time to do the insidious deed, all three boys backed off. As much as they hated Kristie, they couldn’t do that to her. Maybe Donald Trump is not prepared to do prosecute HRC. Maybe since he won the presidency, getting back at her is just not that important. Maybe saving this country and giving the American people a chance at the America dream is more important that a lengthy protracted trial that’s sure to detract from his mission to make America great again.

Donald Trump was elected to the presidency of the United States a mere two weeks ago, and already the press is disparaging him about his waffling on the prosecution of Hillary Clinton. Why? What does it matter? There are so many other things that need to be done in order to get this country out of free fall. Let’s concentrate on those things and hold him accountable in those areas. Then if enough time is left, maybe prosecute HRC.



Leading up to the presidential election held last week (November 8), all Americans were led to believe by the media, both main stream and alternative, that Hillary Clinton was a “shoe-in” to win the 2016 presidential election. Electoral college maps were displayed illustrating Clinton’s easy path to an electoral college victory and Donald Trump’s not so easy path to an electoral college victory.

As someone who wasn’t crazy about Donald Trump and supported other Republican candidates during the nomination process, I was fearful. This country couldn’t take four more years of ultra-left wing rule, and if we four more such years, the United States of America would be totally unrecognizable.

On the morning of the election, I predicted that Donald Trump would win the popular vote and Hillary Clinton would take the electoral college, thus winning the presidency. After all, the crowds at Trump/Pence rallies were much larger than those at Clinton/Kaine rallies. The states of Illinois, New York, and California are responsible for a vast number of electoral college votes. While most of the counties in these states tend to vote Republican, the highly-populated areas of Chicago, New York City, San Diego, Los Angeles, and San Francisco produce enough votes to turn these states blue.

Fast-forward to election night when the election results began to dribble in. It was announced that Trump had to win the states of Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina or he was finished. Losing one of those states would insure a Clinton win. But even if Trump did win those states, I would need to flip at least one traditionally blue state to win. Multiple scenarios were illustrated where each candidate could win 269 electoral votes. Then the tie would have to be broken by a vote in the House of Representatives. Given that the House had a Republican majority, Trump would win.

But it didn’t come to that because Trump was victorious in all three states that were a must for him. Trump was also ahead in the traditionally blue states of Pennsylvania and Michigan with Minnesota going back and forth. Even at this juncture, I didn’t have much hope, even though the talking heads were giving Trump a good chance to win. I didn’t think he would be able to flip a traditionally blue state. But well into the wee hours of the morning, the AP called Pennsylvania for Trump, soon the networks followed suit. Donald Trump had won the presidency.

On TV, the network would show a jubilant Trump headquarters and a woeful Clinton headquarters. On social media, I compared the Clinton supporters to football fans of the University of Georgia in 2008. Alabama, in its second year under head coach, Nick Saban, went to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs who were highly ranked. The Georgia fans were so sure they would be able to mop the floor with Alabama. They even declared the day a “black out” day and all fans were asked to wear black with the team wearing black on black uniforms. Well, guess what happened? Alabama jumped to an early lead in the first half and fended off a second half Georgia rally to win the game in convincing fashion. The TV cameras would show the Georgia fans, and I swear, I have never seen such a pitiful looking group of folks in my life. Clinton supporters reminded me of the Georgia fans.

Once the election results settled in, liberals, who were so smug and nasty to those who didn’t support Obama, had become whiny sniveling Democrats. College students who had, most likely, not been taught American history properly, were too devastated to go to class, much less take tests. So, they asked the heads of their respective institutions of higher learning to allow them to recuperate from such a trauma. And the heads of these institutions gave it to them.

As opposed to retreating to their safe spaces, some whiny sniveling Democrats took to the streets to protest the election results. They were upset that certain vote tallies were showing that Hillary Clinton received more of the popular vote than did Donald Trump. In my observations, it was going back and forth. Thus, the whiny sniveling Democrats were saying that Hillary should be president and would be if not for an obsolete arcane system that had been in place for generations. (I’ll have more on the electoral college in a futures post.) Whiny sniveling Democrats, I have news for you. We are a nation of laws, even Obama has said that once or twice.

In his acceptance speech, President Elect, Donald Trump, called for unity and indicated that he would be a president to all the people. He further indicated that he was aware that while many didn’t support him, he would be their president. Subsequently, social media, particularly Facebook, exploded with all these memes calling for unity. Some Republicans were expressing empathy with whiny sniveling Democrats, because they knew how devastating it was for them to lose.

I didn’t call for unity, nor did I express empathy with the whiny sniveling Democrats. Instead, I pointed out how those same whiny sniveling Democrats treated Republicans four and eight years ago. They told us that we lost and to get over it. They also told us that they didn’t care what we thought, they were going to do what they wanted to do.

Thus, I have no sympathy for whiny sniveling Democrats. They can deal with things just like we did four and eight years ago.



I had better get busy with this article because even though it’s still the morning after, it’s getting close to being the “afternoon after.” I certainly didn’t expect Donald Trump to win the presidency. From all accounts and media outlets, including Fox News, Mr. Trump’s chances of winning were estimated to be slim to even none. He was drug through the mud like no political candidate had ever been. Some Democrats, including First Lady, Michelle Obama, were expressing utter shock at what he was overheard saying on the Access Hollywood tape, even though fowl-mouthed rapper Jay Z and his wife Beyoncé are included among those in the Obama inner circle.

In the short time I’ve been at my desk and perused social media, I have seen so much vitriol and hatred coming from Democrats directed at Donald Trump and his supporters. I’m also seeing some Democrats express disbelief that their gal, Hillary lost. “Oh, but she’s the smartest, most caring woman in the world.” Get real, she screws up everything she touches. Hey, Democrats, not everyone agrees with you. Here’s a list of things, not in any particular order.

  • Not everyone thinks government is all powerful, all loving, and always perfect. Some of us believe that the private sector does a lot of things much better than government and should be left to do so. That was one of the principles on which this country was founded, and many of us believe in this 240-year-old principle.
  • Not everyone thinks that it’s okay to kill the unborn just because carrying that child to term is inconvenient for the mother. Science has proven that upon conception that fertilized egg takes on human characteristics such as brain and heart activity.
  • Many of us respect the armed forces and feel that a strong military is necessary to the well-being of our nation and the safety of our citizens.
  • There are those of us who respect our nation’s local law enforcement. And while there are certainly “bad cops” out there, most our policemen and women are fine people who deserve our respect as they work from day to day to protect us from criminal activity and assist us when necessary.
  • We live in the last half of the second decade of the twenty-first century. Slavery ended in 1865 and additional civil rights legislation was pass over a half-century ago. While racism exists and continues to exist until Christ returns and sets up his 1000 year reign here on earth, most of us believe in and have worked to established equal opportunity, but realize that with equal opportunity, we cannot guarantee equal outcome.
  • Most of us believe that we have the right to exercise our freedom of speech, especially when it comes to holding our government officials accountable; and don’t like the way you have many hurled the “racist” accusation at those who have disagreed with the policies of the first black president, Barak Obama. You have also come up with the ridiculous notions that the American flag is racist, and that chanting “USA” is racist. It seems that whenever you can’t decide on what to call those with whom you disagree, you, with reckless abandon, just hurl the term racist. In fact, you make up the definition of racism to suit your needs of the moment. Again, many of us just don’t like that.
  • Many of us question the existence of man-made climate change, and there are many articles written by respected scientists who have refuted this theory. However, Democrats have consistently hurled insults and called those who didn’t agree with them unflattering names. Again, not everyone agrees with you on this issue and many of us were fearful of the ridiculous regulations that were being crammed down our throats in the name of climate change.
  • Many of us don’t agree with you in your efforts to soak the rich and screw over businesses. These are the entities who issue our paychecks. When our employers prosper, we, the middle class, tend to do better.
  • Most of us don’t want government-run healthcare. We warned if the dangers when the ACA was being crammed down our throats using every legislative trick in the book. Our nation’s healthcare system is a mess. Democrats this is your fault. You own it; lock, stock, and barrel. Now it looks like it will be up to the Republicans and the Trump administration to fix it. Thanks a lot, Dems!
  • Most of us want to win the war on Islamic terrorism and believe we need to define the problem in order to solve it. We believe that ISIS is the twenty-first century Third Reich and must be destroyed, and never allowed in this country.
  • Immigration: You Democrats have never acknowledged that there is a difference between legal and illegal immigration. When someone says they’re against illegal immigration, you make no distinction between legal and illegal and hurl the xenophobia accusation. We want illegal immigration diminished and feel that a wall on the Mexican border will go a long ways in solving this problem.
  • A lot of us would like to be able to defend ourselves from an attacker either before or after the police are called. We’d rather not have the police come, tag our dead bodies, and call the morgue to come and get us.
  • Most of us want to maintain Israel as a trusted ally. If fact, it’s necessary. God has indicated that he will punish those who turn their backs on Israel.

The above outlines many of the areas where the two major political parties disagree, and as I’ve been saying all along, liberals, Democrats, progressives, or whatever it is they want to call themselves these days can’t seem to believe that anyone could possibly have different view. And if they have different views, they’re stupid and evil. Furthermore, Democrats don’t appear to believe in free speech unless they agree with the speech.

I’ve been called a sore winner this morning, and that’s probably right. I want to lash out. I want to do the same things to Democrats that they did to me eight years ago and have continued to do to me and other conservatives since then. I’m a flawed individual, but grateful that those flaws have been paid for.



It’s the day before what is termed by many, the most important presidential election of our time. Those who don’t pay that much to politics or current events will remind us that this is always said before every presidential election. And they’re probably right.

In the 2008 presidential election, the American people make the biggest voting mistake of their lives in electing the most liberal president ever by a substantial majority. In the 1988 presidential election, the American public overwhelmingly defeated the most liberal presidential candidate ever to run to date, Michael Dukakis. Then in 2000, the country was split between conservative George W. Bush and liberal Al Gore. Thus, the country moved rapidly to the left in the twenty years between 1988 and 2008.

Tomorrow Americans once again go to the polls to elect the person who will be our leader for the next four years. Leading up to this election day, there have been many stories in the media regarding how liberals are changing votes from Republican to Democrat on the voting machines during early voting. We’re also hearing reports that Democrats are going behind closed doors and filling out fake absentee ballots for stuffing in the ballot boxes. Of course, there will be dead people voting, all voting Democrat. This has been happening for decades.

Yes, I’m discouraged by this and all the other shenanigans pulled by Democrats, liberals, progressives, or whatever they want to call themselves these days. It makes me wonder if we will ever have a fair election again. And it also makes me wonder if we are even a free country.

An article published on, it is hinted that President Obama is encouraging illegal aliens to vote in this election. I don’t know if the current president is doing this or not. However, in the article, he certainly indicates that the rule of law doesn’t matter to him (so, what else is new). Obama Encourages Illegals To Vote. In an interview with the Latin-oriented You Tube channel, mitu’, millennial actress Gina Rodriguez asked Obama should millennials, dreamers, and undocumented citizens be fearful of voting. If she votes, should she be scared that immigration will come for her or her family and deport them.  Obama replies, “Not true and the reason is, first of all, when you vote, you are a citizen yourself. And there is not a situation where the voting rolls somehow are transferred over and people start investigating, etc. The sanctity of the vote is strictly confidential. “

I don’t know which of these two is the dumbest. Obama is actually not dumb, he’s just a lawless hater of the United States of America whose intent as president was to either destroy this country or weaken this country to the extent that the next liberal president could finish the job. Was Gina Rodriguez indicating that she was an illegal alien? It doesn’t make any difference if you’re coming into the country and taking the correct path to citizenship or if you are here illegally, you’re not a citizen and you can’t vote.

Furthermore, even if you are a citizen, natural born or naturalized, you will have to register to exercise your right to vote, and in many states, you have to show a proper ID to vote. Yes, voting is a right for all American citizens, but with that right comes responsibility. You do have to register and make sure you register in a timely manner. You also have the responsibility to determine where you should go to exercise your right to vote. When you show up at the poll, you should also have a valid ID with you to prove who you are.

Liberals have continuously fought requiring an ID to vote. Also, they have hinted that they are okay with convicted felons, and illegal aliens voting. Could they possibly be in favor of dead people voting? I wouldn’t be surprised.

But if this Rodriguez chick is so scared that the authorities may track her down and deport her because she voted, then that’s all the more reason to keep the system we now have. You register and you bring a valid ID when you exercise your right to vote. Do it the right way and you’re not going to get in any trouble.

It would be nice, though, if you knew something about the candidates and the issues when you show up at the polling place. Voting on the basis of gender and skin color is not smart. And yes, I know, there many people who have no idea or who simply don’t care about the issues facing this country or their particular locality. I can probably name you as many as ten folks who I know personally who know nothing about the issues. These folks voted for Obama because he’s black and they’re voting for Hillary because she’s a woman and/or has promised to carry forth Obama’s policies.




The presidential election of 2016 has several target implications, one being the economy. Democrat nominee, Hillary Clinton, has indicated that she will raise taxes on those who the government considers wealthy and lower taxes on the middle class. On the other hand, Republican nominee, Donald Trump, has indicated that he will lower taxes for everyone, including lowering the corporate income tax rate to 15%. Clinton is counting on the old liberal mantra of tax the rich, lower the boom on those evil corporations, to resonate with the American public, particularly middle and lower income individuals. Trump is hoping to make a case for a stronger economy by lowering taxes, especially on businesses, by indicating that the economy will grow rendering widespread prosperity for all.

How many times have we heard the Democrat blather stating that President George W. Bush squandered the Clinton era budget surpluses and piled up deficits with expensive wars and tax cuts for the rich? It appears whenever a Republican proposes across-the-board tax cuts where everyone who pays income tax will get a tax cut, the Democrats always scream, “tax cuts for the rich, tax cuts for the rich.” According to the Washington Times in an article in February 2010, entitled, “Bush Tax Cuts Boosted Federal Revenue,” by Ryan Dwyer, Mr. Bush’s deficits were the product of spending, not tax cuts.

This Washington Times article went on to indicated that in 2003, President Bush cut the dividend and capital gains tax rates to 15% each and the economy responded. In two years, stocks rose 20% and $15 trillion of new wealth was created. The U.S. economy added 8 million new jobs and the median household wealth increased by $20,000.

What liberal tax-cutting opponents refuse to accept as truth is that the 2003 Bush tax cuts generated a massive increase in federal tax receipts. From 2004 to 2007, federal tax revenues increased by $785 billion, the largest four year increase in the history of the United States. Unfortunately, Congress spent these increases on domestic programs when the tax cuts could have paid for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. Thus, the tax cuts enacted by Congress in 2003 were an important cause of an economic expansion that roared for some 50 months and created 8.1 million jobs.

Fast-forward to when Barak Obama became president and his policies, which included a stimulus that crowded out private investment, an enormous healthcare reform bill, and a nightmarish financial regulatory package; all of which delayed economic recovery from the crash of 2008, and drove the unemployment rate to 9.1%, according to the Heritage Foundation.

When discussing economic implications liberals also love to refer to the Reagan years and undermine “Reaganimics,” also known as “trickle-down” economics. When Bill Clinton became president in 1993, the Democrats couldn’t wait to declare that “trickle-down” economics was over.

According to, the economy performed better during the Reagan years that during the pre and post Reagan years.

  • Real economic growth averaged 3.2 percent during the Reagan years versus 2.8 percent during the Ford-Carter years and 2.1 percent during the Bush-Clinton years.
  • Real median family income grew by $4,000 during the Reagan period after experiencing no growth in the pre-Reagan years; it experienced a loss of almost $1,500 in the post-Reagan years.
  • Interest rates, inflation, and unemployment fell faster under Reagan than they did immediately before or after his presidency.
  • The only economic variable that was worse in the Reagan period than in both the pre and post Reagan years was the savings rate, which fell rapidly in the 1980s. The productivity rate was higher in the pre-Reagan years, but much lower in the post Reagan years.

Liberals also continue to indicated that the Reagan tax cuts were a major cause of the budget deficits and the quadrupling of the national debt in the 80s. This is factually untrue. Real federal revenues grew at a faster pace after the Reagan tax cuts, than after the Bush and Clinton tax hikes. From 1982 to 1989, revenues expanded by 24.1 percent. Over a comparable seven-year period, 1990 – 97, a period that accounts for both the Bush and the Clinton tax increases, real federal revenues grew about 19.3 percent.

If the Reagan tax cut was not the major contributing factor to the increasing deficit in the 1980s, what was? According to, there were two primary explanations: (1) large and sustained defense build-up and (2) the unexpected rapid decline in inflation and the recession in the early 1980s.

Liberals are also quick to state that Bill Clinton’s economic record has outperformed Reagan’s. The growth rate under Clinton was 2.7 percent, a half percent below the 3.2 percent growth rate under Reagan and a full percentage point below the 3.8 percent growth rate during the 1983 to 89 expansion.

From 1981 to 1989, every income quintile, from the richest to the poorest, gained income according to the Census Bureau economic data. The reason the wealthiest Americans saw their share of total income rise is that they gained income at a faster pace than did the middle class and the poor. But Reagonomics did create a rising tide that lifted nearly all boats.

By 1989, there were 5.9 million more Americans whose salaries exceeded $50,000 a year than there were in 1981 (adjusting for inflation). Similarly, there were 2.5 million more Americans earning more than $75,000 a year, an 83 percent increase. And the number of Americans earning less than $10,000 a year fell by 3.4 million workers.

While every president has had his own economic policy, Democrats do lean toward raising taxes and punishing the rich, including businesses. Republicans, however, lean toward lowering taxes for everyone to expand the economy which will result in an increase in tax revenues to the government.

The 2016 presidential election is no different with same economic implications of past presidential elections. Furthermore, the economy is always front and center in a presidential election cycle regardless of other factors such as foreign policy, crime, immigration, right to life, etc.

Hillary Clinton wants to raise taxes on the rich and on those evil businesses, but promises to cut taxes on the middle class. Donald Trump is proposing tax decreases across the board, especially on corporations to create jobs and bring jobs back to America.

If you study the examples illustrated in this article, it is inevitable that Republican presidents Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush did more for the economy than presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Barak Obama. I’ve always said that it took two brain cells to be a Republican while Democrats can operate on only one brain cell. This is one of the reasons. It takes a little more studying and deliberating to understand conservative/Republican economic philosophies.

With the baby boomers retiring, it is more important than ever that the economic implications of this presidential cycle are understood. More healthcare is going to be consumed, along with social security. Do we want our elderly suffering from lack of essentials because Social Security, something we all have paid into and were told we would receive when the time came? Do we want to elderly to go without much needed health care? Or do we want them to die out for lack of access to health care?

America, the above is your choice.
