On Hell Freezes Over

Rich TAkes! ON HELL FREEZES OVER!

After 108 years the Chicago Cubs, the winningest team in baseball, finally won another World Series. 

Next, a mostly life-long Democrat, when he wasn’t Reform Party, or allegedly Republican, Donald Trump not only won the Republican nomination for President, he also soundly whipped Hillary Clinton this past Tuesday to become President-Elect. Surely Hell must have frozen over!

Stranger things have happened, but not in my lifetime.

 hell-freezes-over

If you have looked at this blog, you know that I have not been a Trump supporter, or a Clinton supporter, not by a long-shot, or even close to the broad side of a barn. 

Still, I wish him well, and pray that he is successful in steering the rudder of our USS United States Ship of State. Congratulations, Donald Trump, you pulled off the impossible. 

My Gut Was Right About Trump

“ … the issues are irrelevant, because the product Trump was selling is himself. And Trump is a master persuader…”

dale-carnegie

Here is a guy who has taken two sides to nearly every major issue, and several I couldn’t disagree with more. But I’m willing to give him a chance. Occupying the Oval Office tends to sober a person up real quick, and Trump doesn’t drink or smoke. He may have other vices, but hey, he’s 70 years old already!

I wasn’t a never Trumper, but I was very close. I supported Ted Cruz, he has a resume a mile long, and he took a stand against Obamacare, even if it was a mostly symbolic exercise in the Senate. Cruz did not shut down the government, which only affected 15% or so of non-essential services anyway, Obama shut the government down by refusing to sign legislation that the House sent him for spending. Boehner and McConnell caved, when they could have made a difference if only they stood their ground. Cruz pointed out their Republican hypocrisy, and for thanks, the GOP establishment aimed their guns at him, as well as other fine conservative members of the House and Senate. While the TEA Party and classical liberal conservatives gave the Republicans the House and later the Senate, for thanks the GOP took aim at conservatives..

Now it is up to Trump to save the Republican Party. That thought is not only scary, it is also ironic.

The Republican Party set the stage for someone like Trump to get the nomination by not pushing back in any significant way against Obama’s policies. The people have spoken loud and clear that we don’t like Obama’s policies and unconstitutional over-reaches ever since Obama took office in 2009 and then set to work jamming central government Obamacare down our throats. The mid-terms in 2010 and 2014 should be proof enough. And now in the 2016 General, Hillary lost by huge enough margins in states she was supposed to win. 

obama-legacy

The election is over, and kudos are also in order to Hillary and Obama for her gracious concession and his walk around the White House to begin the transition. 

The truth is, the American people have repudiated Obama’s agenda since the 2010 mid-terms. Trump represents just the latest iteration of American’s disgust with the path we’ve been following since 2009. Trump seems to be serious about reversing nearly all of Obama’s legacy. I pray he does just that.

The Mid-Term Massacre TAkes!

Okay, a little gloating might be in order after the Mid-Term Massacre, but Boehner and McConnell insured that it will be short-lived.

They are determined to compromise with the socialists and Obama in the near term, and the current lame-duck is very scary. Both kept their positions in closed door meetings, with no challengers. We need leaders with a spine, and neither Boehner nor McConnell have convinced me that they possess one.

Anyway, enjoy the

Tuesday Was A Hollow Victory For The GOP

The ’14 mid-terms was an open and shut case that we the people are opposed to all of Obama’s policies. Sadly, Republican leadership seems to think that we want RINOs working with Obama.

Obama plans to protect up to 5 million from deportation

His next tack is purported to be illegals who happened to birth a child while in the USA illegally. It is time to end the birth right policy. It is not in the Constitution, including the 14th Amendment, which is perhaps the most misinterpreted amendment in the Constitution. Birth-right citizenship first appeared in an 1895 Court decision. One of the first cases of judicial over-reach.

I am in favor of an amendment which specifies that at least one parent of any child born in the USA be citizens themselves before citizenship is conferred upon their off-spring.

Our Dear Leader has recently threatened to take on limiting carbon emissions through regulatory agencies, since Congress “won’t act”. I’d like to remind everybody that a Democratic controlled Senate refused to ratify Kyoto years ago by a vote of 99-0. icy thinker

Many, if not most people believe than man is on the road to causing catastrophic global warming, after all, Al Gore, Barack Obama and legions of others tell us incessantly that the science is settled, why there is even scientific “consensus”, even though the very concept of scientific consensus is antithetical to the concept of science itself.

Climate Forcing! Feedbacks, The PDO and The AMO! Aerosols, Greenhouse gases, the Sun and the Clouds, oh my! Don’t forget La Nina and el Nino, the Little Ice Age, and the Medieval Warming Period, to say nothing of cows belching and farting…and especially politics!

US physics professor: ‘Global warming is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life’

“It is of course, the global warming scam, with the (literally) trillions of dollars driving it, that has corrupted so many scientists, and has carried APS before it like a rogue wave. It is the greatest and most successful pseudoscientific fraud I have seen in my long life as a physicist. Anyone who has the faintest doubt that this is so should force himself to read the ClimateGate documents, which lay it bare. (Montford’s book organizes the facts very well.) I don’t believe that any real physicist, nay scientist, can read that stuff without revulsion.”

Every serious skeptical scientist has been consistently saying essentially the same thing for over 20 years, yet most people have never heard the message.”
