The Sad But True State of American Politics

Or government is no longer august citadels of reason where the highest standards of patriotism and civilized decorum are practiced, where all energy is laser-focused on what is best for our nation’s security and fiscal health, where party affiliation is second to the needs of “We the People” and truth and honor abound.

Maybe it was never quite as ideal and dedicated as the paragraph above reflects, but even in my 82 years on earth, I can remember when it was a hell of a sight better than it is now. When at least the three branches had a common cause and only disagreed on which path to take to get there.

Our government has deteriorated into a three-ring circus, complete with elephants, donkeys and an overabundance of clowns.

No longer do the interests of America take precedent, no longer does the twenty trillion-pound albatross of national debt concern either party enough to deserve a plank in a political platform, not even a splinter.

Adam Schiff has devoted his tenure in office, not to building up a nation, but bringing down a president, his ever-changing charges of collusion, obstruction of justice and any thread that sticks out far enough to get his grubby fingers on to be grasped and pulled out far enough to attract the attention of a media who are just as dedicated to his cause as he is.

And the president many times plays right into their hands with some ultra-abrasive midnight tweet that liberal guests on the network breakfast shows can interpret in myriad negative ways and dominate a couple of hours of news cycle while waiting for the afternoon twitter dispatch to do the same thing on the early evening shows.

The Democrats in both legislative houses are gleefully watching the influx of illegals coming into the country and restlessly await the day until they can control all three branches enough to declare a mass amnesty and procure a whole new constituency of Democrat voters.

Oh, they’ll never admit it and it will be a little more incremental that I stated it, but in the end that is their aim.

As when mankind interferes in the natural flow of things in nature, such as introducing the mongoose in Hawaii to eat the rats that were harming the taro crop. The problem was that one is a nocturnal feeder and the other a daylight feeder, the result, they were stuck with rats and mongoose and no help for the taro plant.

The point I am trying to make is that a similar scenario is beginning to have an impact on Europe where millions of Muslim immigrants - who by the way don’t practice abortion and reproduce almost exponentially - are coming of age as European citizens and flexing their political muscle.

The upshot is that - back in the US - in a generation or so, in the Democratic Party, Hispanics will be such a major voting block that more and more liberal immigration policies will have to be enacted to keep them loyal and, as one thing begets the other, the party will eventually be taken out of the hands of the Chuck Schumers, Adam Schiffs, Nancy Pelosis, et al, or perhaps a powerful third party will emerge and the establishment Democratic Party will languish on the garbage pile of those who tempted fate and lost.

Before you cherry pickers fire up your iPads to shoot off a nasty missive condemning me as a Hispanophobic fanatic who doesn’t believe in immigration, let me, not that it’s going to help with most of you small-minded poison fingers, let me make a true and valid statement.

I happen to believe in immigration. Being of Irish lineage that has only been in America for less than two hundred years, I would not be here without immigration, so I believe and support it enthusiastically.

Caveat: I support legal, controlled immigration, the kind that every naturalized American had to submit to, not because some group of politicians wants to create a new voting bloc. Not because people carrying flags of the nation of their origins want to walk into my country without going through the process.

Living in this nation is a privilege, a chance at a life that is not available any other place on earth and the only people who should be allowed a chance at it should be those who come here add something besides a check mark on a ballot beside some Democrat's name.

What do you think?

Pray for our troops, our police and the peace of Jerusalem.

God Bless America

First of all, today is my 68th birthday. Thank you, thank you. I have watched our government with interest since Jack Kennedy. Donny Trump is the best President since Reagan. I agree with the collapse of my Country. Our politicians are displaying some of the most boneheaded ideas I have ever seen. Just the fact that half the Country voted for Hillary scares me. It seems all common sense is gone. But then , agreeing with your comments, there seems to be a very sinister and calculated slow and steady overthrow of our Constitution,and eventually, my Country.

So right on the money
It is so easy for a bunch of clowns to reduce our entire political debate to elementary name-calling. But that is exactly where we are in 2018 -- and apparently only getting more juvenile into 2019. (the masses of minoons repeat them religiously) Brownshirts coerce us that we must vote a certain way to have empathy for those who show not an ounce of respect for America – either as a country or ideal. CD: "Oh, they’ll never admit it and it will be a little more incremental that I stated it, but in the end that is their aim." There is the other globe-sized problem, they won't admit it no matter what. You hit the nail on the head. There is a total like of honesty or admission that this is all going on, yet here it is right in front of us. ~NIMOC

Clowns Win
Amen, Amen & Amen Charlie after the midterms it appears that the clowns are winning. There is a never ending push to take our God given right, that is protected under the Second Amendment of the US Constitution. Once we lose this right all the rest will fall like dominoes. As Moises AKA Charlton Heston said "I'll give you my gun when you pry (or take) it from my cold, dead hands". As long as we have Donald Trump and the US Military we will survive, however if we get another sodomite like we had for eight years we will toast. I will never forget numerous times Obama mentioning how sorry he was when some "celebrity" passed, or when deadly force was used on some criminal, but not one word was ever uttered when Chris Kyle was murdered because he took out 150 of Obama's Muslim brothers. And when Obama was confronted by Chris's widow his answer was just like when he said you can keep your doctor under Obamacare, it is all bull any way you slice it. Illegal immigration must be stopped and a big beautiful wall is a big step in doing so. Using tear gas should be only the first step in stopping invaders into your country or home. Because they try to use children just like the palestinians, means only that they, just like abortionists, place no value on their children's life, and they will have to answer for it on Judgement Day. The day that the USA falls from being the greatest nation to ever reign in the history of mankind is the day that the great tribulation period begins. In closing 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 King James Version 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. everyone needs to evaluate where they stand with God and remember that there is only one way, and his name is Jesus......nuff said God Bless Plowboy

Public schools
As a high school student, I would say that we have been taught many times the horrible and horrific actions that hitler brought to the Jews during ww2. Also including other historical information as communism and slavey. I don’t think that’s the schools are trying to hide what happened in America’s past but try to introduce it in a more humane way, than just showing pictures of the past. I think most students are just more sensitive to certain subjects and need that buffer to process the information because of how they were taught and brought up and most school just respect that.

America is falling fast but all is not lost
I agree Charlie. But all is not lost. We still have young men and women willing to toe the line in the military. Dan Crenshaw, a one-eyed Navy SEAL was elected to the House of Representatives. Others will follow. God bless America...still.

I'm afraid Charlie is entirely correct here.
Daniel Patrick Moynihan is spinning in his grave.
