Tyranny of the Democratic Party

     I got into a bit of a debate with a Facebook friend today.  He essentially was diminishing the actions of Trump and Kim Jong Un's Summit with this post: 

"The North Korea "summit" doesn't seem to be about denuclearization but about a megalomaniacal dictator who wants the illusion of legitimacy by having this meeting."  

Of course all his liberal friends jumped in with agreement and answered him with the very predictable "which dictator are your referring to?".   Ha Ha.  Well, all that didn't set too well with me so I had to reply... know me !   "If there's a dictatorship today it's the Democratic party refusing to accept a duly elected President & that is actively working to remove him from power for Trumped up reasons. Excuse the pun..."

The liberals  went into full "apoplectic" mode and they expressed great confusion at my comment. (not surprising for many reasons)   So, I decided I needed to draw a picture for them since they've been "dimwitted" by the idiocy of CNN, et al.  I stated: 

      "Let me walk you through it 

1) Dems have control of government through the massive DC establishment.  Massive government is a Democratic ideal, so it stands to reason they are very involved in the workings of the FBI, CIA, DOJ, etc... They hate Trump, just like you- especially those at the top.     
 2) Prez Obama decided he had to guarantee Clinton won the election because Trump was unacceptable - that should be very easy to imagine for all of you cause you'd probably do the same thing. 
3) Obama instructs his "besties" at the FBI to "spy" (or whatever you want to call it) on the Trump campaign and even gets help from establishment Republicans to set up a fake dossier that speaks of Trump doing obscene things with a Russian prostitute. 
4) The media - always essentially towing the Democratic philosophy-- are only too happy to help by spreading the "fake news" regarding Trump's Russian prostitute to their buddies in the other networks. Additionally, CNN even fed debate questions to Hillary. 
5) Once Trump won, VERY unexpectedly, the Obama administration and the FBI knew they could be exposed- so they decide to essentially "frame" Trump for "collusion" with the Russians (which actually isn't even a crime). Their hope is to stall and badger Trump along with their "besties" in the media with full throttle, daily attacks on him to the point he can't even do ice cream right. Maybe break him ? Then, hopefully get a Democratic congress in the midterms and somehow impeach him. 
6) In conclusion- the Democratic party under Pres Obama and with help from his administration, the FBI and the DOJ conspired to remove the decision of the American people to elect Donald Trump by conspiring against said President. You know this is true because all of you would have done the exact same thing--- your hate for Trump is so blinding to you that you're missing the fact that you are endorsing the Democrats efforts to rule America without having legally been elected. Dictatorship."

The Democratic party, much like the Republican party before Trump, is focused on only what's best for IT.  What's good for the country is of very minor importance.  They are treasonous and they are fully capable of tyranny if allowed to control our government ever again.  We must never let that happen.  Vote in your elections, vote for ANYONE- Independents, Libertarians, Green Party, Republican... but DO NOT VOTE DEMOCRATIC !  Their behavior and actions this past year have removed their right to rule any office in our country ever again........

In My Humble Opinion.

Liking Donald Trump

     If you read my blogs during the election of 2016, you'll know I was not a fan of Donald Trump., in fact, I hated him.  I thought he was disgusting, greedy, shifty, slime ball.   In fact, here is a line I extracted from a date during the primaries;   "He is an egomaniac, he's crude, he's inexperienced, he's not eloquent, he holds a grudge, he mocks disabled people, he disrespects women, he feeds off anger, he argues with the pope, he provokes the Muslims, he alienates our allies, he's a poor winner, he's a poor loser, and in some ways he's just plain weird."  That from Feb. 26, 2016 --

     So, clearly I use to be on the "anti-Trump" bandwagon.  But, the biggest thing on my mind back then, and now and always will be is;  "What's best for our country?"  At that time I was convinced that was Marco Rubio who speaks so well, is of Hispanic heritage and could conceivably bring the country together and move forward to tackling the challenges of the 21st Century through free enterprise and what I now call  "individualism" (not conservatism, a term I've really grown to dislike).  If Rubio didn't win, I considered Hillary Clinton the better choice than Trump what with her experience and knowledge of world politics, "How could you choose Trump over her?"  I thought to myself.

     If you've read my blogs you also know that my opinion started to evolve.  As the months went by I grew to appreciate some things about Trump.  (I ended up voting for Gary Johnson, but that was a total  protest vote against the parties.)  Donald Trump was also becoming an obvious enemy to BOTH political parties and that was what I first really liked about him.  Then he started heralding that he wanted to "drain the swamp".  The "swamp", in my mind, features political lobbyists and the so called mainstream media both of whom I vehemently despise.  I think I have written my most vicious blogs against those two vipers with the slime-bag political parties a close third. 

     So, I settled down on election night with my wife ready to watch Hillary Clinton win the presidency.  I watched with detached interest.  After  starting out the night with ambivalence  I then watched with concern.  Could Trump really win this thing ?  What will happen to us ?  The stock market futures were dropping !   Then I started thinking about his "Drain the Swamp"slogan, and I started to calm down.  I started to enjoy it all.   What an upset !  We were watching CNN, and I watched with growing glee as it became obvious that the announcers were NOT happy with the outcome.   They were so unprofessional, so biased, so disgusting that within a two hour period I started liking Donald Trump more out of pure spite against the talking heads.   As time rolled by  I was astounded and shocked at how biased the media had become.  Trump could do nothing right., and upon his swearing in, they nearly lost their minds with bias.  At his first press conference as President,   I listened  as Donald Trump put the media in their place.  All those years of Bush being walked all over and Obama being idolized just melted away.   Trump told them to their face what they are.  I was listening on the radio and I literally felt dizzy with happiness at how he spoke to them.  I realized at that moment, that I was becoming a full fledged Trumpkin.

     After watching the way ALL of DC has mobilized against this man I realize "the swamp" isn't just the media, the lobbyists, and the incompetent- slime bag parties, it's also the entire government.  They are rotten to the core and NOBODY could have brought this out but Donald Trump.  I still think he's an ogre, he's rude, blunt,  he's a terrible speaker, but he is exposing Washington, DC for the cesspool it has become.  Through his actions and determination he is doing a lot of good things.  He is revving up the economy in a significant way.  He is making progress with our enemies and allies.  He's challenging the pharmaceuticals !   I sincerely believe he cares about the common man and loves the USA.  Russian collusion ?  That's an obvious invention of the Dems, the  Mainstream media and apparently the FBI and CIA leadership.   Donald Trump "sneaking" around with the Russians ?  Trump is the most blunt, open book I've ever seen on the national stage.  Why and how could he be so very sly about the Russians ?  Give me a break.

     So there you have it, after  much thought and consideration I have fully evolved to appreciating the hard work, determination, diligence, and surprising intelligence of this man and I feel he is exactly what our country needs right now.  Maybe later we can go back to "eloquence" and flourishing speeches, and hyperbole, but right now we need "bigly" action, in a big way.   I fully support President Donald Trump.  He is what is best for our country right now.

Happy Mother's Day To My Wife

By Chuck Marshall 

     On the eve of Mother's Day, I dedicate this blog to my wife and mother of my two children. She endured communism for 12 years in Cuba and carries the livid disgust for that system of government with her every day. It is the prism through which she sees the world.   

    Today's kids don't remember the "eastern block" as we referred to the Soviet Empire when I was young, but the poverty, misery, suffering, lifeless and miserable existence of communism and the consequences of "group thought" and "government control" should be taught to our children as a requirement in school. We cannot be lazy with this, Americans, we are the living example of the happiness, wealth and joy that is so much more prevalent when it springs from the individual. We can't ever let that slip away. 

**Growing up Communist - Memories of the Soviet Block

**This article encapsulates much of the danger of socialist ideas that are allowed to morph into some sort of answer for all problems and blanket laws that will defeat all "the bad things" that happen in life.  The only ones such a system benefits are those at the top.  The ruling class.  

Happy Mother's Day Janet !  Te Amo Mucho !

US Citizenship Question on Census - Dems go Crazy !

The Lowdown on US Census and Citizenship Controversy 
By Chuck Marshall

What's all the fuss ?

      Each state is represented according to the population of its citizenry.  US citizenship is required by law to vote in Federal elections.  The census is proposing the question of how many actual citizens - that can vote -  are there in each dwelling ?  The left goes apoplectic.  Why ?  Because the Dems know they will lose representation in Congress due to the enormous numbers of foreign immigrants in Democratic states such as New York and California.  The more people you have, the more representation you get in Congress and that could tip the power from one party to the other.

How does this affect the individual ?

      The individual American citizen should consider that their power as an individual diminishes if non-citizens are allowed to be counted.  This goes for anyone who votes, whether it be R's, D's, Libertarians or Independents.

Historically Similar Circumstance ?

      This argument was made back before the civil war when the south and north compromised and made slaves 3/5 of a person in regards to representation.   The south wanted them to be counted totally, the north "not at all" for obvious reasons.  There's power in numbers, even if some of those numbers are humans treated as cattle. 

Chuck Marshall's Humble Opinion ?

    Absolutely the question should be asked.  Representation is to reflect voting citizens and nothing else so it stands to reason that non-citizens, who cannot vote legally, would not be counted for the purpose of representation.  In addition, this goes down as one issue for the Convention of the States to add as a voting rights act for any new amendments to the constitution.

Letter Published in Orlando Sentinel - Gun Control

By Chuck Marshall

The Orlando Sentinel once again flatters me by publishing one of my letters, this one rather stinging towards them so I'm a bit surprised they published it.  This is in regards to a feature they have every week where they herald one person and criticize another with a brief outline of what was said.  It's called Bravo VS Boos.  They held up a US Representative from Florida who, I guess, "came to his senses" on gun control.  That didn't set too well with me, so I wrote the following.

Thanks Orlando Sentinel !!
