Destruction of monuments by Jim Downey

Destruction of monuments

Seems our West Point graduate / Veteran, Louisiana Governor Edwards and the Attorney General, Jeff Landry, forgot that they represent, all Louisiana Citizens. And that their job is to protect the property owned by all… The so called mayor of New Orleans organized a raid and destruction of the people’s property, namely the Confederate Monuments in that city. Our city, not the Mayor’s. Our Attorney General (a real vet) should get off his back side and arrest Mr. Landrieu. Where did the Mayor get the money to hire a black ops team for a night attack? Did any funds come from the black panthers? Where they armed? What amount were team members paid? Did those funds come from Governor Edwards’s budget or the city tax? Were any of the mask workers, city employees? If someone shook the heritage trees, would any of those involved, black or white, appear on the records of the Confederacy soldiers rosters? Keep in mind there were 15000 Black Confederate soldiers. The proper action would be to let the citizens vote their wishes and not let some DS Mayor use a few racist to destroy veteran’s monument. Are monuments in front of churches next? I would hope that The Disabled American Veterans (DAV) and The Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) that scheduled their convention this year in New Orleans will rethink it, for the next year and will say something when they get there…. What is the link between Confederate veteran and Vietnam veterans? They both lost and were not welcomed home….

Barter Town 3/8/2017 by Jim Downey

Barter Town


Mad Max’s “Bordertown” is alive and well. It was relocated to Washington DC. on the democrat’s side. Rumor has it that the move included a trip through Russia for some dialog preparation for the internet leaks. Looks like Mama Pelosi wants to be Aunty Entity by talking a blue streak, which does not count as singing. Trump is obviously up for Mad Max! For more fun assign an individual, politician or a talking head to the appropriate character. Bartertown, Thunder Dome and the Democratic Party in the beltway! As to thunder dome, it also appears that it is the democrats turn in the cage. Notice the seating arrangement for President Trump’s speech, stage right for Democrats… Note the Democratic audience, on the left are located stage Right, how appropriate. I suspect the folks dressed in white, (no hoods this time) were/are probable the ones responsible for feeding the pigs for the fuel farm at Thunder Doom. It was good to see that the democratic electorate paid by the democratic tax payers are doing nothing but sitting on their thumbs instead of working for their money. More Democratic money give-a-ways. After all they too get free food (expense accounts) travel, and free cell phones. That’s a good job benefit that not available to the rest of us. That waste of money will correct itself next election. Will the dems reelect a representative that wastes their money? Then we will have to put Democtats on the endangered species list. Obama was caught trying to catch the last train out of Bartertown. Seems his whisper to the Russian wasn’t followed up and he did not do as promised for the Russian. Is it possible that the Russian got him elected and he didn’t get Putin a part in the 007 movies? Oh well what goes around turns around and bites you somewhere or leaks about it on the web or your leg….

Vet statues NO 3/8/17 by Jim Downey

Vet statues NO


The racist are loose again in New Orleans. Now they have spit in the Eye of all Veterans. The Soldiers on the statues did not start the civil war. (Conflict) Soldiers’ do not start wars, but lots die because of it. Evidently the term “follow the money” was not included in their thought process. How much tourist money is involved? How many of those tourist are veterans. Did they consider money to be lost by the absence of tourist money from the following: The Word War Two Museum, the Confederate Museums (Memorial Hall), Military associations, DAV, VFW, Legion), history buffs, the surrounding military bases, the vets working for the city, vets in small business. Vets, like Elvis, are every place, every color, quietly but still involved. One final thought, what do Confederate Veterans have in common with Vietnam veterans? They both lost and were not welcomed home.

The liberal media have awakened from their eight years of slumber. The Trump presidency has turned dozing Obama lapdogs into insanely rabid Trump attack dogs.
Over the past few weeks, the media has been involved in a feeding frenzy trying to harm the new administration by focusing on one “fake news” scandal after another.

The most recent controversy involves the resignation of former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and his conversations with Sergey Kislyak, the Russian Ambassador to the United States during the transition period for the Trump administration.

In these discussions, there was a mention of the new U.S. sanctions issued against the Russian government by the Obama administration. These conversations were recorded and the contents of the call were leaked to the Washington Post in violation of the law. Flynn was either forgetful or not truthful when discussing the issue with Vice President Mike Pence, who said on Face the Nation that the National Security Adviser did not discuss the issue of sanctions with the Russian Ambassador.

After giving Pence false information, Flynn had to resign, but he seemingly did not break any laws when he discussed sanctions or other issues with the Russian Ambassador. In presidential transitions, it is commonplace for officials in a new administration to make contacts with foreign leaders. What is unique in this case is the leaking of the conversation to the media and the active effort within the massive federal bureaucracy to harm the Trump presidency. In that case, laws were broken and an immediate investigation is warranted.

Instead of probing the leaks or the bureaucratic resistance to the new President, the mainstream media is focusing on the Russian connection and speculating if the Donald Trump is being blackmailed. They are pushing the narrative that the Russians stole the election for Trump and he is beholden to them. The Flynn story just allows the media to engage in wild, unsubstantiated speculation about Trump’s so-called Russian involvement and mention that this is another possible “Watergate” scandal.

Fortunately, our new President is not a shrinking violet and can return fire to the media. Yesterday, in his first post inaugural news conference, President Trump held court for 77 minutes and enjoyed himself while scolding the media for their “dishonest” practices. He reserved special anger for CNN’s biased reporting and celebrated the low ratings of their host Don Lemon’s evening program.

To understand the reason for new aggressive attitude toward the Trump administration, it is vital to recognize that the media is overwhelmingly liberal. This has been the case for decades and it is getting worse, not better. For example, the Center for Public Integrity investigated all 2016 presidential campaign donations linked to journalists. An astounding 96% of all journalist contributions, $382,000, were given to Hillary Clinton’s campaign, whereas only 4% of donations, $14,000, benefited the Trump campaign. Trump’s meager fundraising haul was on par with his almost non-existent positive media coverage, no wonder he feels hostility toward the Fourth Estate.

The media’s relationship to the President was much different during the Obama years. While Barack Obama was President, most reporters acted like cheerleaders advocating his agenda, not tough investigators probing controversies in his administration. There could have been investigations galore on Obama administration scandals such as Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS targeting of Tea Party groups, and many more.

Instead, as noted by Peter Hasson of the Daily Caller, President Obama was asked plenty of softball questions during his eight years in office. For instance, during his first year in office, Harry Smith of CBS asked, “Golf what does it do for you?” A better question would have been, “Mr. President, with all of the problems at home and abroad, how have you found the time to play 306 rounds of golf during your presidency?”

Not to be outdone, Jeff Zeleny of the New York Times asked President Obama, what “enchanted” him the most during his first 100 days in office? It was a pathetic question from an “enchanted” reporter working at a newspaper that was a journalistic outpost for Obama administration.

Even mainstream Republican and former George W. Bush White House Press Secretary Ari Fleischer admitted that the press had gone “soft” on President Obama and now “they want to change their tune” and get more aggressive with Donald Trump.

While they attempt to taint Trump with accusations of “Watergate” and other ridiculous hyperbole, millions of Americans have stopped watching their programs or reading their drivel in print and online. As Fleischer noted, a recent Gallup poll showed that “trust in press reporting accurately and fairly is at an all-time low.”

This intense attack on our new President just reaffirms why the public has such a low regard for the media. In the battle of Trump versus the media, it would be a good idea to bet on the President who already defeated his political opponents and the media to get elected.

If President Trump can make speeches, conduct news conferences and go on social media to communicate directly with the American people, he can get his unfiltered message to the public without the bias and negativity of the media. All he needs the media for is to be his favorite target of ridicule.

Today, on the 38th anniversary of the 1979 Islamic revolution, thousands of Iranians demonstrated in Tehran. As usual, the crowd rallied against the “Great Satan,” yelling “Death to America.” They were burning the American flag and effigies of Donald Trump and stomping on the President’s picture.

Police and military personnel joined the protest this year which was focused on condemning Donald Trump and his agenda. The intensity of the anti-Americanism was particularly intense since President Trump issued sanctions against the country in response to their inter-continental ballistic missile test. The Trump administration declared that the test violated the 2015 nuclear agreement between the Iran and six world powers and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 that banned the country from “any activity related to ballistic missiles.” In response, the United States officially put Iran “on notice.” The Iranian regime ignored the President’s warning and promptly launched another ballistic missile test.

Unfortunately, the anti-Trump rally in Tehran bore some striking similarities with protests that have been organized in this country. After the election of Donald Trump on November 8, liberal organizations have been working non-stop to create unrest. One activist claimed that the goal was to make the country “ungovernable.” Thus, American flags have been burned, Trump supporters have been attacked, and the President has been threatened by numerous celebrities, activists and street thugs.

For example, last week in Berkeley, California demonstrators lit fires, threw firecrackers, broke windows, defaced property, yelled obscenities and prevented conservative commentator Milo Yiannopoulos from speaking to a Republican group. These activists obviously do not believe in the 1st Amendment, our U.S. Constitution or free speech, so possibly they would be more comfortable in an Islamic dictatorship like Iran.

In both Berkeley and Tehran, demonstrators were spewing anti-American hate speech while being totally uninterested in recognizing opposing views. In Tehran, Iranian protesters waved posters of Donald Trump being punched. Similarly, in Berkeley and other cities, leftist demonstrators have demonized, ridiculed and threatened Donald Trump and his supporters. The protest at Berkeley was not an isolated incident. At the Women’s March in Washington D.C., Madonna claimed that she had thought about “blowing up the White House.”

In Tehran, demonstrators are controlled by radical Islamic clerics who encourage the anti-American protests every year. Iranians do not have the right to oppose these religious leaders for there are no free speech rights in their country. Based on a recent report by Reporters Without Borders, Iran ranked as the fifth worst country in the world in regards to free speech and freedom of the press. Instead of blaming Donald Trump for all their problems, these protesters should be demonstrating against their country’s tyrannical regime.

In the United States, the political left has exploded into violent protests since the election of Donald Trump as President. These leftist mobs are funded by George Soros, communist groups and other extremist organizations like Black Lives Matter.

The purpose of demonstrators in both Tehran and Berkeley is to bring about the destruction of our nation’s constitutional republic. Many of the Soros backed demonstrators want to overturn the election, impeach Donald Trump and disregard the vote of the people. These dangerous activities go against the history of our nation. One of our hallmarks has been the peaceful transfer of power from one administration to the next. In this case, crazed demonstrators are not accepting the results and acting in a very counterproductive manner that may have long range negative implications on this country.

In Iran, the mullahs want to spread terrorism and radical Islamic rule. The country is the largest supporter of terrorism in the world. There is irrefutable evidence that the Iranians fund terror groups such as Hamas, Hezbollah, and the Houthis in Yemen. Sadly, the recent nuclear agreement with the country included billions of dollars in payoffs that will be used to support more terrorism. In addition, the Iranian release of American prisoners was also accompanied by a $1.3 billion ransom. In effect, the outlaw regime was rewarded for unlawfully jailing innocent Americans.

One common thread in these demonstrations has been a hatred of President Donald Trump and his policies. After examining the dangerous goals of both groups, it is obvious that the President is on the right path.

Donald Trumps Contract with the American Voter


Posted in Uncategorized



In the final debate, GOP nominee Donald Trump won a decisive victory over his ethically challenged opponent, Hillary Clinton. Once again this result was achieved despite an unfair moderator, Chris Wallace of Fox News, who gave much more time to Hillary Clinton and frequently interrupted Donald Trump.

At least some uncomfortable issues were raised for Hillary Clinton such as her corrupt foundation and her email scandal, but there was still not an examination of the Benghazi terrorist attack or her questionable health.

While Wallace mentioned her comments in favor of “open borders,” he ignored many of the controversial remarks of her senior adviser John Podesta that were released by WikiLeaks in their voluminous email disclosures.

Overall, Trump scored some good points on issues such as immigration, her handling of the Middle East and ISIS and the disastrous trade deals. He missed some opportunities on reminding Americans about the economic disaster we are facing and Hillary’s desire to continue the Obama agenda. While he did mention Obamacare, he should have tied Hillary to an even more oppressive government run healthcare solution that she advocated as First Lady.

After the debate, the liberal mainstream media focused on Trump’s characterization of Hillary as a “nasty woman.” They claimed that it will hurt him with female voters, but everyone knows that Hillary is “nasty.” For evidence, one can examine the statements of those who worked for her in the Arkansas State Police, the Secret Service and the State Department. There have also been plenty of books written by former Clinton security officials testifying to her horrible treatment of people assigned to provide her protection.

The liberal media also latched on to Trump’s comment that he would not automatically accept an election result. This makes perfect sense, before an outcome can be accepted by a presidential candidate such as Trump, any reports of voting irregularities must be investigated. If there is voter fraud or illegal manipulation of the vote, the result should be challenged in court.

Trump is not advocating military action or civil unrest, but he wants to insure a fair result. We know that there are many irregularities in our voting system. According to a 2012 report by the Pew Research Center, “Approximately 24 million—one of every eight—voter registrations in the United States are no longer valid or are significantly inaccurate. More than 1.8 million deceased individuals are listed as voters. Approximately 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state.”

Of course, this situation has only gotten worse since 2012 and any efforts to update the voter rolls are always opposed by Democrats. In addition, Republican attempts to mandate voter identification are routinely labeled as “racist” by Democrats who usually file lawsuits to thwart such measures.

On a more sinister level, the undercover videos released by James O’Keefe of Project Veritas show Democrat operatives boasting of promoting violence at Trump rallies and engaging in voter fraud. There have been examples of Black Panther voter intimidation in Philadelphia in 2008 and suspicious 2012 vote totals in Cleveland and other cities where Obama received 100% of the vote in selected precincts.

While law abiding Americans hope this election will be fair and honest, unfortunately, that has not always been the case. In the 1960 presidential election, Richard Nixon was almost certainly the victim of voter fraud in Texas and Illinois. Although he refused to challenge the results, it does not change the unpleasant reality that the election was probably stolen from him.

In the 2000 presidential election, Al Gore challenged the Florida results and the final outcome was not decided until 36 days after Election Day. Eventually, Gore accepted the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision to overturn the Florida Supreme Court’s decision regarding an ongoing recount and in effect award George W. Bush the Florida electoral votes and the presidency.

Of course, the real “rigging” is being provided on daily basis by the mainstream news media, Hillary’s cheering section. In fact, according to Jesse Watters of Fox News, so-called “journalists” were cheering for Hillary in the press area outside of the last debate in Las Vegas.

This is no surprise as network news broadcasts have been ignoring the WikiLeaks disclosures, but giving heavy coverage to unproven allegations of unwanted sexual advances by Donald Trump. On Thursday October 13, the mainstream news broadcasts devoted 23 minutes to the salacious accusations against Trump and less than a minute to the incredibly important WikiLeaks stories, which contained offensive comments from top Clinton advisers about Catholics, evidence of Clinton campaign collusion with the media and much more.

For the coup de grace, the Center for Public Integrity produced an amazing report showcasing the media’s near monolithic support for the Clinton campaign. Their investigators examined all donations from journalists and broadcast media professionals in this election cycle. Of all contributions, it was discovered that an astounding 96% or $382,000 was given to Clinton and only 4% or $14,000 was donated to Trump.

To win, Trump must overcome the media, the Democrats, the Republican Party establishment and all of the special interests who protect the status quo. He must also triumph over a very flawed electoral system that can easily be manipulated by corrupt Democrat operatives who boast of their ability to circumvent the law.

Is Trump fighting a “rigged” system? Of course he is.

Six Amendments that are on the Ballot This November



Posted in Uncategorized



The 2016 election will be remembered as the year the Republican Party ceased to exist as a viable national political organization.

This is the year that an insurgent candidate, Donald Trump, captured the nomination despite the opposition of 16 establishment candidates, their operatives, party leaders, consultants, special interests, major donors and the majority of the “conservative” media.

For a while, there was partial unity as most of the defeated candidates and their supporters endorsed Trump, even Texas Senator Ted Cruz. Yet, after the revelation of a 2005 ‘hot mic” recording of Trump engaging in crude “locker room” sexual banter with Billy Bush, an entertainment reporter, many of these party leaders have abandoned their nominee.

Among this group are Arizona Senator and 2008 GOP presidential nominee John McCain and South Dakota Senator John Thune. In fact, last weekend, there was a stampede of Republicans in Congress, including Congressman Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, calling on Trump to step aside.

In response, Trump delivered a strong debate performance and solidified his base support. Unfortunately, the momentum was purposely undercut on Monday by House Speaker Paul Ryan, who convened a conference call among house GOP leaders. In the call, Ryan announced he will not campaign for Trump any longer. In effect, he turned his back on the party’s nominee. He told his fellow congressional leaders that they were free to make whatever decision they wanted, but they were under no obligation to support Trump. Reportedly, some of the participants on the call were unhappy by Ryan’s decision. This is indicative to the attitude of many of the GOP grassroots, who have delivered strong support for Trump throughout this campaign.

Trump drew millions of people to the GOP primaries and collected more votes than any Republican presidential candidate in history. Eventually, he won 37 states and four times the number of delegates as his nearest competitor, Ted Cruz.

Since the nomination, he has drawn much bigger crowds than any other Republican presidential candidate since Ronald Reagan. He easily achieved the record number of small dollar donations, even though he started fundraising very late in the process.

Among the rank and file, Trump is very popular. The problem is that among the party elite, there is utter hatred for Trump. He has not been endorsed by 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney or by former Presidents George H. W. Bush and George W. Bush. Only 1996 GOP nominee Bob Dole has remained loyal to Trump, although his health does not permit him to campaign for him.

In contrast, the Democrats are a symbol of unity as President Obama, former Vice President Al Gore and even defeated presidential candidate Senator Bernie Sanders have endorsed and are campaigning for Hillary Clinton. None of these people like Hillary, but they are coming together to support their nominee. The Republicans only come together to support a moderate or establishment candidate, but a maverick conservative like Trump has seen almost no support from his party.

This entire debacle should be a clear indication to populists and conservatives that the Republican Party is no longer their home. If the party will not support Trump, the grassroots should no longer support the Republican Party.

This betrayal should not be forgotten by the people who work every day, pay taxes and make this country work. The Main Street Republicans are no longer represented by the Wall Street party brokers.

The sad thing is that the party establishment is more afraid of a Trump presidency than a Clinton presidency. In fact, they are quite comfortable with the idea of a Clinton presidency.

Paul Ryan and many of these critics say they are working to preserve the Republican majorities in Congress, but these efforts are worthless. As we have seen in the Obama years, a GOP majority in Congress cannot stop a President determined to pursue a liberal agenda.

Under Hillary Clinton as President, a GOP congressional majority will not be able to stop her. Contrary to the vision of our Founding Fathers, there are no longer three co-equal branches of government. The balance of power has shifted to the executive branch and the presidency, especially with a weak and inert Congress afraid to stand on principle.

President Hillary Clinton will be a disaster for our nation and the damage could be irreversible. Unfortunately, Republican leaders are more concerned about protecting their power, perks and relationships than stopping a menace that may destroy what is left of the greatest country on earth.

Senator Ted Cruz warned of “New York Values.” from Col Dechert

Forwarded for information with my complete indorsement—I am not a Roman Catholic nor have I ever been one.

The US has been sinking beyond recovery for years. Even those who say they support the Constitution are in actuality only supporting an ideal recollection of what that Constitution was: the legal Constitution of the US has not been the governing instrument of administering justice or the operations of the US Government for decades.

Kennedy was and the Clintons are just as gross as I have always declared Trump to be (maybe worse: Clinton favored group sex with young women around the White House swimming pool. The entire truth of Obama remains for eventual unveiling. Yet in each of the election campaigns of these paragons of filth US Catholics and Jews voted 66% or higher supporting each one. Secular Protestants voted in the same % and higher.

Bill Clinton was an unindicted felon (draft evasion) and serial sexual predator when he was elected Governor in Arkansas and later twice elected President of the US. His wife is currently an unindicted felon (and worse) destined to be President of the US. The great majorities enjoyed by Kennedy, B Clinton, and Obama are right now supporting Mrs. Clinton and will continue to do so even though the truth has been widely disclosed.

The biggest religious development in the current secular political battle, so far as I am concerned, has been the moral surrender of the US “Evangelical” community to Trump, led by Liberty University, with unofficial declarations that “Trump is Christian enough.” With this blasphemy the Evangelicals ceased to exist and joined the secular Protestants, unleashing the filth of Trump on the culture, reputation and world perception of the USA.

Small wonder that Russia, et al, and proceeding to launch and win WWIII. The US is now residency of moral putridity.

A closing illustration: as any homeowner knows you keep on and on flushing a toilet enough it will clog up and you are left with excrement floating to the top. We are now being asked to vote one or the other of these two surface wads flushed up by our culture–and the Republican National Committee is complicit in foisting this moral Armageddon and should be sued by the State organizations.

Senator Ted Cruz warned of “New York Values.” Trump and Clintons continue to demonstrate the truth of Senator Cruz’s unheeded and broadly condemned warning.
