SEXUAL CONDUCT: DOUBLE STANDARDS

Bill O'Reilly was just fired from FOX NEWS under allegations of sexual misconduct.  From what I've heard on the networks, I didn't hear anything so pernicious that it would give rise to termination of employment.  There were certainly remarks made by him that were distasteful, but not crude or overtly suggestive in my opinion.

Yet, the media and those on the ever blue-nosed left caused a huge ruckus over the allegations.  Indeed, advertisers left his show in droves, signalling to the vacillating FOX NEWS management that they'd better damned-well make a change. 

Where were all of these goody-two-shoes when Bill Clinton... then President of the United States Bill Clinton... was dallying around with a young intern on the Oval Office carpet?  Remember the daily tidbits of information that used to slither out of the White House about a President who swore under oath that he did not... did not, mind you... have sexual relations with that woman?  Remember how the same left-wing media and political elitists defended Clinton on the basis that his private sex life was none of America's business? Plainly speaking, Clinton somehow actually got admired in the process. 

On the other hand, I've heard no allegations that O'Reilly, who was not the president, actually sacked anybody.  I've heard no woman claim that he forced himself upon her, but I did hear from several women who alleged that Clinton forced himself on them.  

So, why do we tolerate the double standard?

WHY LIBERALS SHOULD PACK UP AND LEAVE

SPECIAL POST

A recent Gallup poll shows that Conservatives outnumber liberals in all but four states: Vermont, New York, Massachusetts and Connecticut.  

So, regardless of the fact that they whine, yell, scream, jump up and down, and resort to gang violence in order to be heard and have their way... they really should have no say-so at all.  

It's up to us conservatives to make them shut up, sit down and behave or to make them get out of the country.  

That's MY AMERICAN OPINION, respectfully submitted.

COLD WAR II IS HERE

SPECIAL POST

Thanks to Barack Obama's gross mishandling of America's foreign affairs and national security interests, we now find ourselves squarely in the center of another cold war with Russia.  Putin, having read Obama as being the biggest wimp in our history, has been running rampant around the globe... in the Ukraine, Middle East and in Europe in general.  Puffed up with the successes of his unchecked incursions, Putin is not about to bend one inch for any Donald Trump. 

Putin is displaying cold-war tactics with bomber flights perilously close to Alaska's coast.  He's allowed Assad to move Syrian fighter jets to a Russian airfield so that they are protected against another U.S. Tomahawk strike; this would indicate to most people that Assad intends to use chemical weapons again and with Russia's blessing.  In short, Putin is flipping the bird... a huge big bird... to the U.S. and communications have virtually come to a standstill.  

Where is Ronald Reagan  when you need him?  Stay tuned.

THE NORTH KOREAN CONUNDRUM

SPECIAL POST

Thank you presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama for allowing North Korea to bring us to this point in time.  All three of them bear some responsibility for not coming to grips with the growing nuclear threat on the Korean peninsula and as a result, not only does North Korea now have nukes, they also have missiles and they are perilously close to marrying the two.  Of course, we all realize that over the years of growth of their unchecked, unchallenged nuclear growth, they have become vastly more belligerent and bellicose.  

One has to presume, and it is probably correct to say, that the reluctance of these presidents to step up to the plate and put a stop to all of it is directly attributable to fear of the Chinese.  Is that to say that China is superior to the United States?  Is that what we're putting on the table here?  Or, is it because the issue seemed to be too thorny, too complex and too confrontational to deal with?  

I've heard it said that we just can't contemplate taking any military action against North Korea, let alone consider deployment of a tactical nuke or two.  Perhaps, it is suggested with a wring of the hands, we'll just have to trust the Chinese to handle it, or maybe we can "talk" to North Korea.  I know that most of us wouldn't be too upset if a North Korean nuke struck the liberal hotbeds of San Francisco or Los Angeles, but how about Portland or San Diego?  

Trump is the first President to come forward and look the problem straight in the eye without flinching.  While I'm certain he does not want to get us into a war, we will surely be in one if North Korea decides to fire off some missiles at South Korea, to invade that country, or to torpedo a U.S. ship.   And frankly, things have become so ominous with the sawed-off little runt in North Korea that we can't rule those possibilities out.  

One thing is for sure... we're in a tough situation, but we need to get used to the idea that if there is going to be a war... better there than here.

OUR GOVERNMENT NEEDS MAJOR HEALING

SPECIAL POST

I'm sure you've heard about the "Deep State," the unofficial alliance of political progressives in our government and the multitudes of government employees who are committed to bringing down the Trump Presidency and destroying our Constitution.  On the one hand, we have government leaders such as Paul Ryan who are covertly trying to destroy Trump; Ryan deliberately, I think, sabotaged Trump's attempt to redo health care and is now saying he will not allow federal money to be used to build the border wall that we, the people, voted for when we put Trump in office.  

How does he hold onto his job?  Could it be, as it most likely is, that other anti-Trump Representatives stand in the way of his removal?  

Secondly, there are some 3.4 million employees in the government, (including the military).  I would venture a guess that 2.4 million of them feel that it is they who run the government and not the elected members of Congress or the President... or even the Supreme Court for that matter.  As a result, Trump is in their way and that is why you see selective leaks of information designed to make him look bad.  These are the people who will flauntingly obfuscate or circumvent any plans on the part of elected officials that are contrary to their own agendas. The government is infested with people who do little or no work and who use their spare time to plot and plan against anything and everything that doesn't serve their own selfish interests... and we are paying them.  

The government has gotten so large and powerful that it has evolved from being the servant of the people into becoming the dictator of the people.  And as long as we dummy up and keep our mouths shut, it is only going to get worse.  

Our government needs a major overhaul... or should I say... the people in our government need major shock treatment.  It is up to us to heal this cancer that has invaded our personal lives, our rights and our liberties, and we have to start today.   No president, not even Trump, can accomplish this task without the full engagement and support of the people.
