The Iranians and the US Deep State, perhaps with the aid of Israel, are trying to get President Trump into a War that we don’t want and we don’t need. In the past, disruption of oil in the Middle East was a serious threat to U.S. business because we depended on that oil to run our nation. NOW WE DO NOT! Thanks to President Trump unleashing the US Energy Sector by encouraging Fracking, we don’t need ANY oil from the Middle East! So, why would we go to War with IRAN because they shot down a drone – even it fit cost $120 Million? We shouldn’t!
The President was RIGHT to stop the counter attack “because it wasn’t proportionate.” Israel wants to get us into a war with Iran so we will destroy Iran’s nuclear facilities. The Deep State wants to get us into a War with Iran because it will cause Trump to break one of his Campaign promises and help them defeat him in the 2020 election. We the People do NOT want Trump to take us to war with Iran because it is OUR sons and daughters who will die in that fight, not the sons and daughters of elite inside the beltway leftists, and it is our Freedom that will be lost if Trump loses in 2020!
I am not saying we don’t take any action against bad actors, but the fact is that the sanctions on Iran are working and we don’t need to go to war to overthrow the radical islamic rulers in Iran we can starve them out. Call the White House and urge the President NOT to be bullied by the media and the Deep State into doing something he knows he should not do!

We are never going to sell people on allegedly conservative principles that end up making conservatives less free. After all, when we sell conservatism, we are selling freedom, in contrast to the perpetual soul-killing tyranny offered by leftist ideology. So, the idea that conservative principles require us to defer to the growing oppression of the left because it is delivered through the medium of allegedly private corporations is nonsense.
Don’t want none? Don’t start none. That’s one of my conservative principles. The corporations started it, and now it’s our right – our duty – to finish it.
The fussy Bow Tie Boyz of conservatism will tell you that this calls your conservative bona fides into question. Well, question away. If “conservatism” means I have to take guff from some goateed 20-something helming a unicorn start-up who thinks I have way too many rights and way too much privilege because my ancestors came from Stuttgart and I wield a penis, count me out of conservatism. I am utterly indifferent to whether the aspiring dictator who seeks to force me to obey is a government employee or a corporate CEO. Neither is acceptable, meaning I will not accept either.
The Big Tech jerks from Silicon Valley are crusading SJWs with a few billion bucks lying around, and they have decided that their target for domination is us. They created the new public square that is the internet in general and social media in particular (check out Glenn “Instapundit” Reynold’s new book), and now they have realized that when everyone gets a say, some people are going to say things their Bay Area pals dislike. As a result, the Instafacetwittertubes have taken to policing the electronic soapboxes against anyone who might cause tension at a Santa Monica Chardonnay tasting. The Bingyahoogles are busy tipping the search engine scales toward their preferred politicians and perspectives, all leftist with an SJW twist. And companies like Salesforce are deciding what legal products, like guns, you can and can’t sell (and therefore, buy) based on what political ideas are in fashion in Menlo Park.
I don’t remember voting for any of these people to run our country. Do you?
But even as they use their power to undermine our ability to participate in the governance of our own society, we are informed that our True Conservative™ principles foreclose our ability to use our own power (in this case, GOP control of the executive branch and the Senate) to defend ourselves. The reason? Oh, well these are private companies, you see, and they can do what they please to limit your ability to be a fully participating American citizen. You can’t fight back using your most powerful weapon, your dwindling political power, because reasons and because.
You try to hit me with a bottle and I’m hitting you with a bat. The aggressor does not get to cite my ideology to demand that I limit my own ability to effectively defeat him. What would ever possess me to agree to that?
And the idea that the conservative gospel commands that private entities are somehow untouchable is ridiculous. Let’s dispense with this silly idea that it is utterly unconservative to regulate the actions of a private business via a simple question:
Are you cool with companies refusing to let black people sit at a lunch counter? With denying them a Twitter account because they are Jewish? With telling women “Sorry sweetie, this software is for men only?”
Of course not.
But at one time, the idea that the sanctity of property rights gave a private business complete autonomy to discriminate was a “principled conservative position.” But this is not a “principled conservative position” anymore; even National Reviewrepudiated having held it a half century ago. Today, mainstream conservatives reject the notion that the government cannot regulate against discrimination based upon race or religion. And it is well-established in the law that the Constitution gives the Congress the power to enact laws doing so, except where the government violates the religious liberty of the business owner, so put that in your cake and bake it.
The “principle” that we can’t tell a private business who it must do business with is no principle at all. We accept that discrimination can be curbed, leaving only a debate over what kind of discrimination should be curbed.
Ma’am, we have established what you are – now the only question is your price.
So, why not bar political discrimination in social media, internet infrastructure (like search engines) and in business in general? We correctly bar racial discrimination because it is unJudeo-Christian and unAmerican to create a caste of second-class citizens by denying some people the ability to equally participate in society. The political discrimination we see today bars citizens from full participation in society and in their own governance. A citizen who cannot express his ideas is crippled; a citizen who loses a bank account or can’t buy a gun to protect his family because some software maker doesn’t like the idea of peasants having pitchforks is no longer a citizen but a serf. Why should conservatives allow themselves to be morphed into second class citizens? Isn’t our liberty enough of an interest to warrant government protection?
Well, not to the liberals. And not to the GOP establishment types who prefer us uppity Normals sit down, shut up and turn out on Election Day to vote for whatever Jeb!-like loser they put forward to go to DC and represent the Chamber of Commerce.
We keep hearing conservatives throw around the word “statist,” but that’s not the debate-ending trump card they think it is. We are conservatives, not anarchists (like my pal Michael Malice, whose essential book The New Right just dropped). There are things the state should do – like protect the citizenry. It should protect their lives from invaders, their property from criminals and, yes, their right to be full citizens from nefarious tech titans who want everyone between I-5 and I-95 to nod and obey.
The answer is not always state action, but sometimes it is state action.
This is not a call for willy-nilly, poorly thought-through regulation. Anyone who took Poli Sci 101 understands “regulatory capture,” the process by which larger corporations invite regulation knowing they can control the regulators and leverage it to secure their position and bar competition. The idea is not to impose a detailed regulatory regime requiring a legion of easily corrupted micromanaging bureaucrats. Rather, it is to establish simple principles that can be enforced by the wronged parties themselves – much like the racial and sexual anti-discrimination framework we have today.
Enact a few simple laws requiring social media outlets to allow all matter allowed under the First Amendment. Keep the Section 230 protections – the idea that truly neutral forums should not be liable for the actions of individuals using the forum is sound, just now we would require the tech companies to honor the “neutral” part. Also, require all business to not bar their use by legal industries or on the basis of political views. That way, for example, we don’t have gun control that cannot be voted into effect via the people’s representatives being imposed by woke corporations. Nor would people who like Trump have to worry about having their Wells-Fargo bank account closed or not being able to get a Verizon phone.
We don’t need a big new bureaucratic apparatus to enforce these rules. We have lawyers. Discrimination law is mostly enforced by lawyers suing on behalf of people who claim they were wronged. Assign hefty statutory damages amounts to various kinds of discrimination, allow the recovery of punitive damages where appropriate, provide for injunctions against further misconduct (or to restore banned people) and award attorneys fees to successful claimants – this is how we enforce our rights without a huge new federal agency. Let’s let hired gun attorneys clean up Dodge City (and I’ve seen plaintiffs’ lawyers get awarded $600+ per hour, which will even make Mark Zuckerberg take notice).
There is no actual conservative principle that requires us to shrug and accept being ostracized from the basic structure of modern American society for the sin of defying the conventional wisdom of a bunch of Scat Francisco swells. They started this. An essential component of the unwritten deal with big business, part of the reason they could claim to be political non-combatants, was that – at least toward the masses – that’s generally what they were. Your Uniteds and Bayers might work behind the scenes for or against legislation that affected their rice bowl, but they did not mess with our rights. Yet today, you have airlines shunning the NRA and drugmakers boycotting liberal shows all the way up to YouTube denying services to conservatives for expressing conservative views. These are attacks on us, as citizens, and this is both new and unacceptable. They can’t be culture warriors when it suits them and claim to be hors de combat when we prepare to punch back.
They chose to play horsey. This is horsey. Unleash the lawyers to regulate them into submission.
There is an alternative to fighting back, and it’s not a happy alternative for you. It is you being silenced and intimidated by a liberal elite leveraging its corporate allies to force you into submission and obedience. I write about what happens when the left wins in my action-packed yet super-snarky novels about the United States’ split into red and blue countries, People’s Republic, Indian Country and Wildfire. Not surprisingly, liberals and the fussy castaways from the Weekly Standard hailed my novels as “Appalling.” But then, my key conservative principle is “Do whatever it takes to defeat those leftist SOBs who want to take my freedom and money,” so of course they hate my books.

My fellow Patriots,
I am writing to you once again to ask for your aid in a matter of tremendous significance to our nation and to our prosperity agenda. As always, I do not ask for your help unless it is critically important to your Individual Freedom and Liberty. Today is one of those occasions.
You may not be aware of what the left, in the form of the radical prosecutors in New York State, are doing to squeeze Paul Manafort in order to build a criminal case against Donald Trump in state court. As Alan Dershowitz points out, it is clear that a sitting President cannot be charged with a FEDERAL crime while in office, it is not clear that he cannot be charged with a state crime!
I will not explain what the left is trying to do to entrap the President, but Alan Dershowitz spells it all out for you in this important interview with Dennis Prager:
Please click these links and you will see how henious this action to transfer Manafort to solitary confinement in the notorious Rikers Island federal prison in New York City really is:
Now, Alan Dershowitz is telling Trump that he MUST pardon Paul Manafort NOW! By doing so, we accomplish several important goals. First, Manafort gets out of prison TODAY and never goes to Rikers Island where he can be coerced to cooperate. Second, then New York State must bring state charges against Manafort for financial misconduct, which will take months, but most importantly, state law will not allow them to torture Manafort to try and get him to “compose” a crime against Trump to gain his release like they are trying to do now. Third, Trump must pardon Manafort NOW because what they have done to him and are planning to do to him is not who we are as a nation and is a flagrant abuse of our judicial system for purely political reasons!
They broke down the door of his home when he was a cooperating witness, the Mueller team put him in solitary confinement trying to get him to make false charges against Trump, when that did not work, they charged him in New York State, now they are making the unusual step of moving Manafort from a minimum security federal prison to solitary confinement in a New York City Federal Prison for one reason – to get him to implicate the President in a crime. That is NOT our Justice System that is what they do in Third World Dictatorships!
We cannot allow this miscarriage of justice but most of all we cannot allow this “tactic” to entrap our President to be deployed by our enemies!
PLEASE take action today to message the White House and give your support for the President to make this pardon as soon as he returns from Normandy! I cannot express the importance of you and your organizations taking action immediately and I trust that you will do so.

Rob Portman thinks You’re Stupid!
Rob Portman is proving once again this week that he doesn’t “Represent” YOU or me or Ohio! Never has, never will. He is a bought-and-paid-for lackey of the US Chamber of Commerce and he represents them, not YOU, in their globalist efforts to destroy your job and our nation. (Don’t believe me read all about it here.)
Rob Portman thinks that you and I are stupid. He thinks he can just lie to your face and get away with it. While he and the corrupt “Republican Party” are solely responsible for this INVASION of our nation, Rob Portman tries to tell you and me that he rightfully opposes President Trump’s Tariffs on Mexico because it will “hurt Ohio”. In a Columbus Dispatch article today he says that a 5% tariff on Mexico would increase the costs of imports to Ohio by $9.6 billion a year. So, we can’t have that, right Rob, I mean the drugs coming over the border KILLED 4,293 Ohioan in 2017 alone, so the cost of $9.6 billion in increased costs to Ohio’s would not be “worth it” to save THOUSANDS of lives??? Right Mr. “I am going to solve the Opiod Crisis.” I am pretty sure that killing our sons and daughters “Hurts Ohio” more than paying a little more for our damned Avocado’s Rob!
You solve the crisis Rob BY CLOSING THE DAMNED BORDER!!! You solve it Rob by SUPPORTING the President who is the ONLY ONE doing a damn thing to stop this INVASION!!! This Invasion YOU and the corrupt Republican Party created and failed to fix because your masters in the Chamber of Commerce want to drive down our wages and destroy our communities and our society.
Hey Rob, you know what “hurts Ohio” and all American’s? How about the $436 Million in our tax dollars – and borrowed money – that we will have to pay to take care of illegal Immigrants TODAY!Just Today! How about the $116 BILLION it will cost us, not you Rob, not the Chamber of Commerce, but us, THIS YEAR to take care of ILLEGAL immigrants with schooling, housing, food, health care, transportation and everything else.
Speaking of borrowed money, your NON-Representative voted this week AGAINSTRand Paul’s “radical” balanced budget plan that would cut 2% of spending each year. How many real Republicans in Ohio Rob do you think are concerned about the federal government borrowing $1 Trillion dollars every year and we are on the hook for it? You think it might be a majority? Read any polls lately on the topic Rob? Yea, but you voted no, because you don’t “represent” us do you Rob? We can’t cut even 2% of spending because your global corporate buddies love getting that corporate welfare, love the fact that you take care of them Rob so they can take care of you. It’s a beautiful system isn’t it Rob, unless you are an Ohio Citizen!
Normally, I would ask you to call your “Representative” and let him or her know how you feel on an issue. Rob Portman doesn’t give a damn how you feel or what you think. So, just call him up and tell him that you know that he doesn’t represent YOU, and he should stop pretending that he does, and that he should just go to hell! It will not change anything but it will make you feel better for having done it and no one deserves it more than your “NON-Representative”!

Huge Emergency Action – President Trump Announces Escalating Tariff Program for “All Mexican Goods” Until Illegal Central American Migration is Stopped…
Jumpin’ ju-ju bones, President Trump has just announced an emergency tariff program on all Mexican goods that begins on June 10th at 5% and continues to increase monthly until Mexico takes action to halt illegal Central American migration.
Tariff Schedule: ♦5% effective June 10th ♦10% effective July 1st ♦15% effective August 1st ♦20% effective September 1st ♦25% effective October 1st, and continuing therein until Mexico takes action to stop the flow of Central American migrants.
Details from the White House: As everyone knows, the United States of America has been invaded by hundreds of thousands of people coming through Mexico and entering our country illegally.
This sustained influx of illegal aliens has profound consequences on every aspect of our national life—overwhelming our schools, overcrowding our hospitals, draining our welfare system, and causing untold amounts of crime. Gang members, smugglers, human traffickers, and illegal drugs and narcotics of all kinds are pouring across the Southern Border and directly into our communities. Thousands of innocent lives are taken every year as a result of this lawless chaos. It must end NOW!
Mexico’s passive cooperation in allowing this mass incursion constitutes an emergency and extraordinary threat to the national security and economy of the United States. Mexico has very strong immigration laws and could easily halt the illegal flow of migrants, including by returning them to their home countries. Additionally, Mexico could quickly and easily stop illegal aliens from coming through its southern border with Guatemala.
For decades, the United States has suffered the severe and dangerous consequences of illegal immigration. Sadly, Mexico has allowed this situation to go on for many years, growing only worse with the passage of time. From a safety, national security, military, economic, and humanitarian standpoint, we cannot allow this grave disaster to continue.
The current state of affairs is profoundly unfair to the American taxpayer, who bears the extraordinary financial cost imposed by large-scale illegal migration. Even worse is the terrible and preventable loss of human life. Some of the most deadly and vicious gangs on the planet operate just across our border and terrorize innocent communities.
Mexico must step up and help solve this problem. We welcome people who come to the United States legally, but we cannot allow our laws to be broken and our borders to be violated. For years, Mexico has not treated us fairly—but we are now asserting our rights as a sovereign Nation.
To address the emergency at the Southern Border, I am invoking the authorities granted to me by the International Emergency Economic Powers Act. Accordingly, starting on June 10, 2019, the United States will impose a 5 percent Tariff on all goods imported from Mexico.
If the illegal migration crisis is alleviated through effective actions taken by Mexico, to be determined in our sole discretion and judgment, the Tariffs will be removed. If the crisis persists, however, the Tariffs will be raised to 10 percent on July 1, 2019.
Similarly, if Mexico still has not taken action to dramatically reduce or eliminate the number of illegal aliens crossing its territory into the United States, Tariffs will be increased to 15 percent on August 1, 2019, to 20 percent on September 1, 2019, and to 25 percent on October 1, 2019. Tariffs will permanently remain at the 25 percent level unless and until Mexico substantially stops the illegal inflow of aliens coming through its territory.
Workers who come to our country through the legal admissions process, including those working on farms, ranches, and in other businesses, will be allowed easy passage.
If Mexico fails to act, Tariffs will remain at the high level, and companies located in Mexico may start moving back to the United States to make their products and goods. Companies that relocate to the United States will not pay the Tariffs or be affected in any way.
Over the years, Mexico has made massive amounts of money in its dealings with the United States, and this includes the tremendous number of jobs leaving our country.
Should Mexico choose not to cooperate on reducing unlawful migration, the sustained imposition of Tariffs will produce a massive return of jobs back to American cities and towns. Remember, our great country has been the “piggy bank” from which everybody wants only to TAKE. The difference is that now we are firmly and forcefully standing up for America’s interests.
We have confidence that Mexico can and will act swiftly to help the United States stop this long-term, dangerous, and deeply unfair problem. The United States has been very good to Mexico for many years. We are now asking that Mexico immediately do its fair share to stop the use of its territory as a conduit for illegal immigration into our country.
The cartels and coyotes are having a greater and greater impact on the Mexican side of our Southern Border. This is a dire threat that must be decisively eliminated. Billions of dollars are made, and countless lives are ruined, by these ruthless and merciless criminal organizations. Mexico must bring law and order to its side of the border.
Democrats in Congress are fully aware of this horrible situation and yet refuse to help in any way, shape, or form. This is a total dereliction of duty. The migrant crisis is a calamity that must now be solved—and can easily be solved—in Congress. Our broken asylum laws, court system, catch-and-release, visa lottery, chain migration, and many other loopholes can all be promptly corrected. When that happens, the measures being announced today can be more readily reduced or removed.
The United States is a great country that can no longer be exploited due to its foolish and irresponsible immigration laws. For the sake of our people, and for the sake of our future, these horrendous laws must be changed now.
At the same time, Mexico cannot allow hundreds of thousands of people to pour over its land and into our country—violating the sovereign territory of the United States. If Mexico does not take decisive measures, it will come at a significant price.
We therefore look forward to, and appreciate, the swift and effective actions that we hope Mexico will immediately install.
As President of the United States, my highest duty is the defense of the country and its citizens. A nation without borders is not a nation at all. I will not stand by and allow our sovereignty to be eroded, our laws to be trampled, or our borders to be disrespected anymore.
On June 10th, the United States will impose a 5% Tariff on all goods coming into our Country from Mexico, until such time as illegal migrants coming through Mexico, and into our Country, STOP. The Tariff will gradually increase until the Illegal Immigration problem is remedied,..
I can’t stop laughing when I think about BMW and the German ‘splodey heads.
German automaker BMW invested $2 billion in Mexico (plant recently finished) as part of a prior plan/strategy to utilize the NAFTA loophole and gain access to the U.S. market. They are building cars there. Can you imagine how much a BMW will cost with another 25% added to the price of the finished product. LOL…
Hell, the Germans might end up being the South Mexico border patrol.
|Today, wasn’t it a coincidence, that out of nowhere, Robert Mueller pops up on my TV at 11:00 AM to make a statement about his infamous “Mueller Report”. Just happens to be the same day that Jim Comey has an op-ed in the Washington Post attacking the Barr investigation. Just happens that Attorney General Bill Barr is in Alaska and not part of this event. Yea, coincidence.|
You could see in Mueller’s face and hear in his voice that he was doing something he knew was wrong. So, he begins by saying their was not enough evidence to charge anyone, meaning the Trump campaign or the President himself, with working with the Russians to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. Making it clear that if he did find evidence, he would have charged the President – but he admits he didn’t have the evidence! THEN he says that on the issue of obstruction, he could not find enough evidence to CLEARPresident Trump of obstruction – which is NOT his job and NOT the law – BUT since DOJ Policy states that you cannot charge a sitting President with a crime – that he simply could not charge the President! A complete reversal of American law where you are INNOCENT until proven guilty – but Mueller is suggesting that he couldn’t CLEAR Trump.
What? So, in the first instance of Russian collusion he says he could charge the President with a crime regardless of the DOJ rules, but in the second instance of obstruction he was “prevented” from charging the President because of those DOJ rules! He then openly suggests that it is not the job of a special prosecutor or the DOJ to hold a President accountable for his actions but it is the job of Congress! In other words Congress should move to impeach because Mueller falsely claims that he “couldn’t charge Trump” do to DOJ rules! What a bunch of B.S.!
The entire purpose of his statement was to give impetus to the “Impeach Trump” hard left agenda and crush Nancy Pelosi’s resistance to committing political suicide by moving to impeach by suggesting that Trump did obstruct justice – which he could not prove! The Deep State NEED’s an Impeachment circus so that they will not be investigated and they will not be on trial. (Read/Listen to this interview with Joe DeGenova to find out just how bad this Really is!) This event today was part of a coordinated campaign to undermine the Presidency of Donald Trump, derail the Barr investigation, and save their own behinds. Everyone involved in setting up this Mueller statement should be investigated.
I am OUTRAGED, YOU should be OUTRAGED, All Americans should be outraged! Make sure that you share this email with everyone you know so that they understand what is really going on here and do not buy the lies that will be spewing from the fake news. The fate of our nation is in the hands of Donald J. Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr. These criminals must be investigated and charged and punished for their crimes or we will lose our nation.

USDA staffers quit en masse as Trump administration eyes moving offices out of DC
I have long believed that President Trump should make a campaign pledge for his 2020 Re-Election campaign that would REALLY “Drain the Swamp”. That pledge would be to move nearly ALL Federal Agencies out of DC! I was overjoyed to see the article below reporting that the Trump Administration is attempting to move the US Department of Agriculture out of DC.
Just as you and I would hope, the story says“staffers quit en-masse” because of the move and I say the more the better! Why are we taxpayers paying ridiculous Washington, DC inflated salaries to these bureaucrats most of whom we don’t even need? It’s because the DC swamp is all about growing and concentrating ITS power within OUR government not to serve us, but to rule over us! The only agencies that should remain in DC are the military and perhaps the intelligence agencies. Every other agency, the Education, FBI, Treasury,Labor, DOJ, HUD, etc. all need to be dispersed into our great country so they are “forced” to live among us, and actually become us, and get paid salaries like we get paid. These agencies should all be staffed by real Americans not just privileged elitists who have never worked in the real world and yet think they have a right to tell us how to live!
Department Head Sonny Perdue said “We will be placing important USDA resources closer to many stakeholders, most of whom live and work far from Washington, D.C. We will be saving money for the taxpayers and improving our ability to retain more employees in the long run.” I love how the Union Rep says “This move does not serve a public purpose”! Translations: This move doesn’t serve the union’s purpose. No wonder “Democrats are racing to block the move.”
I say, Mr. President, make the goal of your second term in office to move as many federal agencies out of Washington as possible. That pledge will get you the votes of millions of Americans who are sick and tired of sending trillions of our tax dollars out of our communities and states and into Washington, DC to fund and be wasted by the very people who despise us!
We the People Convention
Federal employees at the Economic Research Service (ERS) and the National Institute of Food and Agriculture (NIFA) – two small but important agencies within the USDA – are unhappy with Perdue’s plan to move the majority of their staff from their current offices within the capital to an area closer the country’s agricultural centers.
