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.

On the FBI Surprise, Surprise!

If Hillary Clinton were anyone other than Hillary Clinton, she would have been in jail over a year ago. The very fact that she conducted business while Secretary of State on her home brewed server is in violation of the Freedom of Information Act, the Records Act, and the Espionage Act. There are at least 16 potential violations, with the counts numbering in the thousands. 

Huma?

What is even worse is the pay for play scheme conducted at the same time for the Clinton Foundation, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the ridiculous “speaking fees”  that Bill commanded once Hillary became SoS. His speaking fees amounted to an average of 275k beginning in 2009. A typical speaking fee at that time was around 25 k or so for in demand speakers at legitimate venues. 

Clinton Cash Author Says He ‘Knows’ FBI is Investigating Clinton Foundation

The FBI has been investigating the Clinton Foundation for over a year, predating even the rogue email server controversy. Thanks to Peter Schweizer’s book, “Clinton Cash”.

Exactly one week ago, the FBI and James Comey said that they were re-opening the investigation into Hillary, due to new evidence acquired during their investigation into Anthony Weiner’s sexting issue with a fifteen year old. They seized a lap-top, and behold, it had 650,000 emails featuring Huma Abedin and Hillary Clinton on it. Dick Morris is speculating that said laptop is not Huma’s or Anthony’s at all, it is Hillary’s missing laptop for over two years, and that Huma was simply holding it for safe-keeping in order to document a future book or something. As I recall, that is exactly the same reason why Nixon installed a secret tape recording machine in the Oval Office, and he got ran out of Dodge for erasing 18 minutes of tape, once it was discovered.

The election is next Tuesday, so if you have not voted already, please vote for anyone other than this un-indicted felon.

“Weiner’s Laptop”: Is it Hillary’s “Missing Laptop”?

There was good reason for Clinton to hide the laptop. It contained ALL of the Hillary Clinton emails that were originally on her personal serve when she worked in the State Department. It had not yet been picked clean yet because no one knew it existed. That laptop housed the 33,000 emails designated as “personal” that Hillary never turned over to the State Dept. and claimed to delete.

Weiner Is ‘A Perfect Target’ To Hack Hillary’s Server

Heating UP!

Hillary and Trump are starting to heat up. Trump calls Hillary a bigot, Hillary calls Trump a racist.

The polls are the polls, Hillary is still in the lead by 3 to 5 points. I won’t be dealing with any of that in this post, instead it primarily concerns the ridiculous politically incorrect nonsense foisted upon us by marxists across the country today.

Iran makes confession about $400 million payment:

It was RANSOM!

It has been crystal clear since the Iranian Green Revolution that Obama has been on Iran’s side. We should want them to fall, for a very large variety of reasons.

Instead, we seem to be supporting Iran, who are Russian and Syrian allies, and who are also the largest state sponsor of terror, including and especially against Israel. While the CIA had plans in place to support democratic uprisings whereever they may occur, we have learned that Obama told them to stand down during Iran’s “Green” Revolution.

>> John Brennan, director of the Central Intelligence Agency, said last week that there was evidence much of the money Iran has received from sanctions relief was being used for development projects. “The money, the revenue that’s flowing into Iran is being used to support its currency, to provide moneys to the departments and agencies, build up its infrastructure,”<<

Sure John. That is why we paid 400 million in cash, through Swiss Francs and Euros. It is after all illegal to send US currency to Iran, to say nothing of a wire transfer isn’t it? Aren’t you the guy who converted to Islam during Gulf War I?

On the RINO National Convention

Trump seemingly has a few good points going for him. He says he will stop the insanity of admitting middle east “refugees”, and wants to clamp down on illegal immigration. I’d like to know what he wants to do about so-called central American “refugees” whom Obama is inviting into our fair country, and once here, is lavishing resettlement and benefits galore. He wants to take care of the Vets and fix the VA, but on most other issues, he is just another progressive liberal. That is why the RINOs like him, and they can count on him to be willing to make a deal. After all, he is the self-professed king of the deal. 

Trump is not an outsider, and his business acumen is also open to question. The RINOs have declared war on Constitutional TEA Party conservatives, you know, us little people who gave them the House and later the Senate in order to stop Obama, and instead betrayed us by giving Obama everything he wanted, even after we got Boehner tossed as Speaker. I’ll stop right here, more comments below. 

Welcome to RichTAkes! On the RINO National Convention!

Check out the Trump and Hillary look-a-likes near the end!

Sadness For Friends Who Cannot Be Sad

I’m sure I’m not alone in thinking that the RNC reminds me more of a wake, instead of a look ahead at a future to support and believe in. Erick Erickson’s coherent thoughts on what is happening to the party at the RNC.

>> . . . it is just meaningless team sport in favor of their team. There is no substance, just sloganeering that means as much to each person and is taken as much differently by each person as “hope and change” was in 2008.

So much could have changed, but nothing will. And in four years, the very people who lamented Trump only to jump on his train cheerleading to the end will be back at it again because “not Clinton.” <<

McConnell promised to crush the TEA Party over two years ago. After smashing Bevin with Trump’s support, McDaniel, Cruz, Stutzman, and others, the RINOs are now attacking Tim Huelskamp.

The irony of the GOPe defeating Stutzman for the IN Senate nomination is that they will probably now lose that seat. I don’t think they even care. Former Governor and Senator Evan Bayh tossed his hat into the ring last week. Bayh will probably win on name recognition alone. Stutzman would have had a chance, but this Young guy, hand-picked by McConnell, is an unknown back-bencher.

CHAOS: Republican Convention Shatters As Trump Lackeys Steamroll Rules Vote

Under the rules of the convention, a majority of seven delegations could force a roll vote on the rules; it would then take a majority of the delegates to toss the rules committee’s book. At least 11 states signed on: Colorado, Washington, Utah, Minnesota, Wyoming, Maine, Iowa, Virginia, Alaska, North Dakota, and Washington D.C.

So the secretary of the convention hid behind a curtain to avoid having to accept the signatures.

The Trump Empire Strikes Back!

Donald Trump needs to reach a majority on a first ballot to win the Republican nomination, he has little chance on a second or subsequent ballot at the Republican National Convention.

Tuesday in New York Trump took a giant step towards that end. It is no surprise that Trump won NY, but the margin that he won it by might have been. He received about 60% of the vote, and Kasich might have picked up 5 delegates, while Cruz goose-egged. Donald Trump did much better than I predicted, he looks like he will pocket 90 delegates when all is said and done.

Next week, the rest of the Mid-Atlantic and North East region will go to the polls, and Donald will do very well then too. PA and MD will be in play.

In the west, Trump will not have such an easy road. Cruz will easily win most of the remaining western states, and his support is pretty strong in California, too. This means that for the first time in my life, Indiana will play a “yuge” role in a primary election ballot on May 3rd. Since Indiana is an open primary state, it is a good thing that Hillary is facing a strong challenge from socialist democrat Bernie Sanders. That should keep the cross-over vote down.

The Hoosier State will likely decide the next Republican Nominee.

Please fill in the little oval for Ted Cruz!

But you know, if you look at what’s happening to our country, I mean, when you see what’s going on with our country, how people are taking advantage of us, and how they scoff at us and laugh at us. And they laugh at our face, and they’re taking our jobs, they’re taking our money, they’re taking the health of our country. And we have to be firm and have to be very strong. And we can learn a lot from the Bible, that I can tell you.

China is, uh… I mean, when I deal with China, you know, I have the Bank of America building, I’ve done some great deals with China. I do deals with them all the time on, you know, selling apartments, and, you know, people say ‘oh that’s not the same thing.’ The level of… uh, the largest bank in the world, 400 million customers, is a tenant of mine in New York, in Manhattan. The biggest bank in China. The biggest bank in the world.

China has got unbelievable ambitions. China feels very invincible. We have rebuilt China. They have drained so much money out of our country that they’ve rebuilt China. Without us, you wouldn’t see the airports and the roadways and the bridges; I mean, the George Washington Bridge is like, that’s like a trinket compared to the bridges that they’ve built in China. We don’t build anymore, and it, you know, we had our day. But China, if you look at what’s going on in China, you know, they go down to seven percent or eight percent and it’s like a national catastrophe. Our GDP is right now zero. Essentially zero.

The Wisconsin Pivot Point TAkes!

Excellent Wisconsin

The Cheese-heads of Wisconsin have spoken, and spoken loudly, giving Ted Cruz a huge, huge, landslide victory in the Republican Primary yesterday. Cruz out-performed the polls again by close to ten points, winning over 48% of ballots cast in a three man race. Two weeks ago, all of the smart money said that this would be a cake-walk for Trump, now it seems that there is little chance of Trump walking into the Convention this summer with a majority of delegates. I should probably also note that self-described socialist Bernie Sanders also whipped Hillary in Wisconsin, and whipped her badly.

The Seduction TAkes!

This Tuesday will be the Wisconsin Primary, and it looks like Cruz and Sanders are going to win going away. While this will be a set-back for both Clinton and Trump, they both face larger issues. For Trump, this looming loss will likely mean that he won’t get to a majority of delegates to seal the deal on the first ballot in Cleveland. It would take divine intervention for him to win on a second or subsequent ballot. 

For Clinton, this will mean that the delegate count will be close to neck and neck discounting the Democrat Super Delegates, who can change their support at any time. Even worse, the FBI investigation into her personal email server and the national security issues that entails should be wrapped up by the end of the month. If the FBI issues a referral to the DOJ all bets are off.

Finally, some guy named John Kasich is still in the Republican race, even though he has no mathematical chance of winning the nomination, and can not even be nominated on the RNC convention floor under current rules, or even the rules from 2008. We’ll deal with Kasich first. At this point his presence only serves to stop Cruz, not Trump  kasich-issues

Ted Cruz: No, Rule 40 shouldn’t be changed to make John Kasich eligible for the nomination

40B is the rule that states that a candidate must have a majority of delegates from 8 states in order to even be nominated on the Convention floor. This was changed from simply winning a plurality of delegates in 5 states in 2012 after it was discovered that the IA delegation had been taken over by Paul supporters even though Santorum and Romney virtually tied for first place in IA. (Santorum eventually won with mere dozens of votes to spare two weeks after caucus night.)

There is no way at this point that Kasich can meet either the 2008 or 2012 standard to even be nominated at the Convention. You gotta wonder what the heck is he doing by continuing in the race. At this point he is merely blocking downfield for Trump. A vote for Kasich is a vote for Trump.

Rich TAkes! On the Primary Stakes

Tonight will be the last Republican debate before Super Tuesday so I thought that I’d post some of my reading material about the candidates in general fromElect Ted the past few weeks. Trump has just come off a resounding victory in the Nevada caucuses where he managed to outfit many of the election officials in official Trump hats and Tees. Jeb Bush has dropped out after South Carolina, while Kasich and Carson vow to stay in to the convention. Meanwhile, on the Democrat side, Hillary and Sanders are duking it out for the communist and felon vote. Finally, Antonin Scalia passed away a week or so ago, reminding us on why we absolutely have to get this election right. We may not have another chance. I am officially endorsing Ted Cruz for President, and I hope you do too.  

Rush broadcast a classic rant the other day below, and I hope you enjoy this edition of RichTAkes! 

Rush: What This Election Is Really About and What’s Really at Stake

“…if we’re serious about stopping this transformation of America, it isn’t gonna be easy, and winning an election is not gonna send a signal to the other side to stand down, you lost.  They don’t look at it that way.  This is a fight between socialism and capitalism, freedom versus tyranny, however you want to categorize.  There isn’t any overlap.”

the Second Amendment Christopher Sean Mercer TAkes!

This topic is a few weeks old, I was drafting the post and then something called work (and a weak knee) got in the way. So in the spirit of cleaning up first-amendment-on-scroll1things, here are my thoughts on the latest mass shooting at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. President Obama’s rapid effort to politicize this recent tragedy, by his own admission said it needs to be politicized, wasted no time to call for even more “reasonable” efforts for gun control, even though the shooter bought his weapons legally, and Oregon already has all of the expanded background checks that he is calling for.

The real deal is that what those who advocate for reasonable regulation really want is to damn the Second Amendment and confiscate all law-abiding citizen’s weapons. They just aren’t brave enough to state the obvious. Yet.

Here we go!

Welcome to the Second Amendment Christopher Sean Mercer TAkes!

A few days ago, there has been yet another mass-shooting at a school, a community college this time, which also practiced a gun-free policy, the Umpqua Community College.

There has been a huge effort to suppress the story, even down to the shooters name in the early phases of this story. His legal name is Christopher Sean Mercer.

President Obama wasted no time nor effort to politicize this shooting, by his own admission.

I would like to offer condolences to all victims and families of this tragic event, as well as a get well soon to all of the survivors.

550254_553012441383836_990933697_n

The US intelligence services ignored warnings about the Boston Bombers from the Russians, in fact we made a citizen of one of them.

I’m not surprised, are you? The media seems to be covering up the full extent of this story as well, with many outlets not even mentioning the shooters name.

Political correctness not only suppresses free speech, it also ends in needless deaths when PC trumps reality.

There has also been a doubling down of the call for expanded gun free zones, when gun free zones are the underlying cause to begin with.

There was a directed effort to conceal the identity of the shooter in this case, in which the media also participated in for a time. Megyn Kelly was one of those who took up the policy. Sheriff John Hanlin: “You won’t hear his name from me or this investigation.”

If American journalists would simply do their job and report the facts about a news story, much of this nonsense could be averted. Instead we are faced with psy-ops from all sides. A Sheriff refuses to release the name of the shooter? Does anyone think that he dreamed that up all on his own? And that major and cable media played along?

OKC, Waco, Sandyhook, and all of the rest have been controlled events after the fact (even during the fact in Waco) and I for one am getting quite sick of it. Suppressing the facts serves no one, especially our once fair republic.

Oregon already has expanded background checks in place, and Christopher owned 13 legally purchased firearms. Why very little mention of his mother whom he lived with? His parents were divorced since 2006 or thereabouts.

President Obama wants to politicize the Oregon shooting

Obama did politicize this tragedy, which he admits. What liberals really want and won’t admit is the total confiscation of all modern firearms from our citizens. They are just too chicken to say it.

Here’s What We Know About Shooter Who Targeted Christians at Oregon College

>The school is described as a “gun free zone” and has only one unarmed security guard, who carries mace. The shooter was taken out by two local police officers who raced to the scene.<

The local Sheriff refused to identify the shooter. I’m betting some powerful folks whispered in his ear. Megyn Kelly played along too, on FNC.

“I say it’s time for a new political aesthetic, that we find beauty in the macabre,” she said. “If you elect me as president, I’ll paint the White House black, permit the lawns to wither and die, and I’ll turn the Lincoln Bedroom into a mock funeral parlor. Visiting heads of state will be forced to confront their own mortality. Instead of backing down from [Russian president] Vladimir Putin at a UN summit, I’ll present him with the skull of a beloved Victorian poet.”
