I have been watching the events of the past week with renewed interest. First we had the inauguration. I was proud to be an American as we watched the history being made before us. I have watched many inaugurations and have been filled with pride with all of them.

Right after those festivities however, we witnessed rioters disguised as demonstrators in the streets doing what anarchists do. They turn over cars. They break out windows. They loot and steal. All this is done under the guise of lawful demonstration. Obviously these are paid rioters who are hired to disrupt and destroy. I bet most of them don’t even vote and have no idea why they are even demonstrating. They just know they are paid to create havoc and get arrested. I  hope Soros and the others who pay for this are proud.

Then came the “women’s march” and all that surrounded that little event. Are the women of America proud of the profanity-laced tirade by Madonna? Do these has- been so-called celebrities represent rank in file women of America? Is Michael Moore one of your heroes? Do they speak for you? I don’t think so.

Don’t these sore loser liberals understand that the very reason they lost this last election was because of actions like these? In reality profane, loud mouths don’t speak for the true Americans of any gender. Worn out has-been entertainers are paid to entertain, not preach hatred. Anarchists have no place in the real America.

True Americans of both genders want a traditional country based on our Constitution and the rule of law. We don’t want illegal aliens running loose in the streets. We don’t want men going into ladies’ restrooms, regardless of how they might see themselves on any given day. Gender is not an identity to be chosen at will. It is instead a biological fact of birth.

True Americans want equality for all of her citizens. We want no special treatment for any race and we don’t want any mistreatment either. All blood is red, period. Citizenship has its requirements however. Responsibility, respect for law and law enforcement, for example.

True Americans want a powerful military with the ability and willingness to confront and deal with any problem or challenge in the world that endangers us. We bow to no one. As the old country boy once said, “We take no crap and we give very little.” We want to again have the respect of the world that we once had.

I also have been watching the hearings in the Senate for the confirmation of President Trump’s new cabinet. If you are a Democrat are you proud of Minority Leader Senator Charles Schumer, D. New York and his “slow walking” of candidates? It is nothing but political theater. I know both parties do it but playing politics with such an important task as Cabinet confirmation is childish. The Senate has a majority of Republicans and can at any time confirm anyone they choose with a simple majority vote. On that note I have a suggestion. How about the Republicans trading Sen. John McCain to the Democrats for Sen. Joe Manchin. We trade a rino for a dino. Sounds good to me.

The national media has decided that they will fight Trump at every turn. That’s a bad decision. Trump is our duly elected President and he is in charge. Using his social media devices he will speak directly with the public whether the media likes it or not.

This final note to liberals everywhere. If you think it is bad now, just watch the next four years and unless I miss my guess, the next eight years. Proud Americans have spoken.

The Clinton Global Initiative is being shut down. Since the election and Hillary’s loss, there is no reason for foreign governments to continue to donate money to the Clintons. Since this little shakedown first started, it has always been an influence peddling scheme. With Hillary’s loss and with no influence to peddle or sell, no cash was going to come in. This, however will not cause the investigation to end. A Republican led Justice Department will get to the bottom of this “pay for play” enterprise and indictments will follow.

As I write this Rep. John Lewis, D Georgia, has decided that Trump’s victory is illegitimate. Therefore he, along with a number of other Democrats, will not attend the inauguration. He did the same for George Bush’s inauguration. I hope this doesn’t come as a shock to Mr. Lewis and the others, but I don’t care. I don’t think Donald Trump cares either. Over the next few months and years people will either be a part of the solution or a part of the problem. Which will you be Rep. Lewis?

Rosie O'Donnell has decided she should declare “Martial Law” until Trump is cleared of all charges??? Charges? What charges? Also, this little bit of information to Rosie. Private citizens cannot declare Martial Law and who really believes, other than a few wild-eyed liberals who see themselves as the smartest and most influential, that our own military would take up arms against Trump? Martial law is when the military takes over complete control of the government. Our military is far more apt to round up people like Rosie O’Donnell and put them in a rubber room for their own protection.

I am amazed as I watch this all unfold. As a lifelong Republican, it isn’t my place to say but, why do the Democrats think they lost? In their heart of hearts they surely know the Russians had nothing to do with our election. They also must surely know the election was fair and honest. Do you suppose it is possible that at some point in time they will come to understand that the reason they lost was, one, they had a scandal ridden, flawed candidate? Two, this election was a repudiation of the Obama Administration and his programs. Thirdly the American people were growing weary of the continued excuses for a poor economy. The recovery touted by Obama was lame at best. We always knew we could do better.

The direction of the country was not what the majority wanted. Think about it. The national media is out of hand. They have become nothing more than a propaganda arm of the Democrat Party. Now Trump goes around the media by tweeting his opinions and thoughts. This drives them crazy because they are then not able to filter his thoughts and add their own agendas.

We are going to see some major changes in the coming days. Trump will probably spend his first few hours as President eliminating most of Obama’s executive orders. Obamacare is history. Illegal aliens running freely across our borders will end. Cities who have been defying Federal law with regard to these illegals will pay dearly if they continue. We are going to see major tax relief. The billions of dollars which have been hidden overseas will come back. Small businesses, relieved of the onerous regulation which has been strangling them, will come back.

Finally, I believe the VA will get fixed. The bureaucracy which has been responsible for its mismanagement will have to change. Veterans need pure choice and not government runaround. Incompetent employees and managers will be terminated and replaced by capable people. It can’t happen soon enough.

I don’t hate Hillary Clinton. I don’t hate Bill Clinton. But, I do want them and their actions investigated fully by the new Attorney General Jeff Sessions and the  Justice Department and if indictments are in order, I want those indictments handed down. This has nothing to do with hate or even dislike. This has to do with law and order.

This is America. We don’t have a ruling class. We don’t have royalty, even though the media would seem to prefer that we did. Let’s take for example, speed limits. If I get in my car and drive down the highway, I am bound by the rules of the road. If the speed limit is 65mph, I am bound by that restriction. By the same token, if Hillary Clinton drives down this same highway, she has the same speed restriction. Her personal wealth or her station in life do not give her or anyone else exemption from the same rules as everybody else on the highway. If she or I violate the rules, we must be held to account. Some years ago I remember Richard Nixon saying that if a President did something, it couldn’t be illegal because the President did it. Wrong again Mr. President. The law applies equally to everyone.

Let us now consider Hillary’s obvious violation of our secret’s laws. She set up a private server in her kitchen and transmitted top secret messages that any hacker worth his pc could hack and steal. In a recent “document dump,” the FBI revealed that many of Hillary’s emails were indeed hacked and that they were hacked by “hostile” foreign actors. Comey says she was careless. Okay, careless and illegal. He didn’t say that, I did. Attorney General designate Jeff Sessions must investigate this and take it wherever it leads him. If this leads to indictments and trial for espionage, so be it. Any American in any station in life should face the same. The law is there to protect us all and no one is above the law.

How about the so-called Clinton Foundation. Do you or does anyone actually believe this was set up to be a charitable foundation? This is now and always has been an influence peddling slush fund for the Clintons. Don’t you feel a little bit sorry for all the foreigners and tin horn despots who contributed to the fund hoping to gain access into top government decisions?  No? Well I don’t either. In reality influence is not for sale. Access is not for sale. Persons who would deign to run for elective office should always be above reproach. They should be of the highest integrity.

I am not trying to reinvent the wheel here. We don’t need new laws. We don’t need a special prosecutor. All we need is for the laws already on the books to be enforced, criminal perpetrators to be held to account, and punished according to the law.

We are not kings and commoners. We don’t have a ruling class. We are all equal under the law, period. Be they the Clintons or the Smiths. It doesn’t matter.

To those who say Hillary has suffered enough, nonsense. She still thinks she is a player. That notion needs to be eliminated from her thoughts for all time. If, however, after a complete, unfettered, non-political investigation is done, and she is found to be without any indictable offense, then and only then can she even consider that she has any place on the stage of America.

Have you ever read the twelfth chapter of Genesis? Regular visitors to this blog will understand that it is not a religious blog, but I do call on Higher Authority from time to time. Also, regular visitors will recognize that Genesis is the first book of the Old Testament of the Bible.

In a nutshell, Genesis chapter 12 relates how God granted to Abraham and to his followers, Israel, most of northern Africa. This happened thousands of years ago.   Israel’s boundaries are clearly laid out in this chapter. Also in these words God makes it clear that anyone or any nation who curses or defiles Israel will suffer the curse of God. In other words, don’t mess with Israel or else.

Well the UN General Assembly apparently decided that they would in fact curse Israel and defile her. So, they passed a resolution essentially denouncing Israel and attempting to take territory away from her. These types of resolutions have been presented before but we have always vetoed them. This time we abstained from a vote which allowed the resolution to pass easily. We turned our backs on our only true ally in the Middle east. By turning our backs, we granted tacit approval for this defiling of Israel. We invited God’s curse on us. Many are now suggesting this act was nothing more than Obama giving Israel the “middle finger.”

The liberals in the world are demanding a “two-state” solution to the Israeli problem. In other words, we split up Israel’s God given historical territory and give some of it to the so-called Palestinians. That split would include a part of Jerusalem which is, of course, the traditional capital of Israel. That would be like splitting up Washington DC and giving part of it to England.

In the past, Israel, in the interest of peace, has voluntarily given up some of their land to these terrorists only to find them using that territory as a base to fire rockets and bombs on Israel. They are not too happy about giving up more territory to just make their problem worse. As Prime Minister Netanyahu has said, if Israel’s enemies quit bombing Israel, there would be peace. If Israel quit defending herself, she would be destroyed.

Simply stated, there can be no “two-state” solution. Israel is a legitimate one state. The screamers who cry for her to share her land don’t want a two-state solution. They want one state, and that state would not include Israel.

I think the time has long passed for us to face a reality. The United Nations has become the League of Nations. Its value as a problem solver has ended. The UN doesn’t prevent wars. It is more apt to start them. The UN doesn’t settle border disputes. It is more apt to exacerbate them. The UN is nothing more than a beautiful building in a very beautiful section of New York that has become a financial drain on America. I heard recently that the building would be better served as condos for the very rich.

Here is another reality. The United States gains absolutely nothing from membership in this little club. Its main function is to rein in our power and do it with our money. If the world wants an organization known as United Nations, let them build a building in Sudan, or Venezuela, or some other country. Let them require that members pay their own way. Let’s see how that would work out.

Finally, whether one reads and follows the Bible or not, Israel is our ally. We need her in the Middle East. We need her to be strong and able to defend herself. We may well call upon Israel to help us get rid of terrorists in the future. You don’t treat friends the way Obama has treated Israel. Another mess that Trump will have to fix.
