Trump Wins and Life Goes On

by lewwaters

trump-006Yes, shocking to many but Donald Trump has won, maybe even eking out a small popular vote win as late arriving ballots are counted to go with the Electoral College win. His supporters are overjoyed and jubilant, much like we saw from Obama’s supporters in 2008 and 2012.

Hillary’s supporters are saddened and depressed, not unlike Republicans were 2008 and 2012.

The protests / riots seen around the country beginning the day after are far from the formation of the TEA Party rally’s seen in 2009. TEA Party rallies weren’t based on mayhem and destruction to stop Obama from taking office, though. That was over taxes and especially Obamacare.

Outrageous and Uncalled for

by lewwaters

It’s no secret that I did not support Donald Trump nor did I support Hillary Clinton. But what is seen in the following video must not be tolerated.

WARNING! GRAPHIC VIOLENCE

This reportedly happened in Chicago and it is reported that Police are investigating, but no arrests to date are reported. The elderly man is said to have been hospitalized and his car stolen by the thugs, that has not been recovered.

Sorry Republicans, It’s No Mandate

by lewwaters

Trump Flip OffAs we all know by now, acerbic Donald Trump came out ahead over Hillary Clinton to next occupy the office of the president. The win comes as no real surprise as one of the two was going to win and both were poor candidates, not what we need to heal our divided country.

Seeing now how the GOP claims to have a mandate and big win is most laughable as once again, we see the presidency won by electoral vote while coming in second in the popular vote.

I have no problem with that as that is the system our founders established. I do disagree with the ‘winner take all’ of 48 of our 50 states and believe each congressional district should have electors voting as did their district. But that is in the hands of the legislatures of each state.

What’s Happened to the Republican Party?

by lewwaters

Trump Flip OffI was born and raised in a strong Democrat family. No, not like today’s Democrats, far from it. A strong Southern Democrat family back when there actually was conservatives in the Democrat Party.

We know today that the Democrats have moved far to the left and if there are any conservatives left, they hide in the shadows.

It was the acts of Jimmy Carter that convinced me to become a Republican in 1977, seeing the Republicans were embracing conservative values, especially seen once Ronald Reagan defeated Carter in 1980.

Bedfellows and Frienemies

by lewwaters

PoliticianIt is often said, “politics makes strange bedfellows,” coined by American journalist Charles Dudley Warner in 1829.

Of course, on the opposite end of that is politics destroying friendships as well as being the cause of bitter arguments as was seen with the duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton in 1804 that lead to Hamilton’s death.

In our modern era, though, we do not engage in dueling, but with the onset of politics of personal destruction, opponents seek to destroy each other’s character while trying to hide their own flaws.

In the meantime, lines are drawn between supporters where we all too often witness bitter arguments, denigration of each other, verbal attacks with condescending denigrating attitudes.

Who the Next President Should Be

by lewwaters

Presidential SealIt is no secret the country is bitterly divided now that Donald Trump is the presumptive Republican nominee and likely will face Hillary Clinton in the November general election.

To say neither is qualified to occupy the Oval Office is a gross understatement, regardless of what either of their starry eyed devotees my claim.

Both are well known New York Liberals that care only about themselves and both would devastate our country if not plunge us into a bloody war.

Updated: The Great Orange Hope?

by lewwaters

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires” 2 Timothy 4:3

Trump Flip OffBy now we know that bombastic businessman Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee for President as a Republican this election.

I am at a total loss as to how so many allowed themselves to be deluded by such a charlatan running what I can only call a “slash and trash” campaign, very reminiscent of the actions years past with Ron Paul supporters.

Interesting enough, now those same people that joined Trump in trashing any and every body not supportive of the poseur are now demanding we all get behind and support his bid, engaging in fear mongering of a Hillary Clinton win.

Are Democrats Embracing Sharia?

by lewwaters
Robert Reich 1

Robert Reich

As we all know, there is little that the Democrat Party and Republican Party can find to agree on today. The division is so broad that I see no reconciliation between the warring ideologies in my lifetime.

Even where the parties were briefly united on opposing radical Jihadists and their acts of terror, I see a shift towards more acceptance and tolerance of the barbarism of radical Jihadists now beginning on the left.

My view is not based on misguided hyperbole as I will be accused of, but in their acts of defense of Islam after an attack as we saw in San Bernardino and even the open acceptance of largely unvetted “refugees” from Syria in spite of witnessing massive problems in Europe where they were first accepted.

Sorry Muslims, You Are Not the Victim

by lewwaters

Syed Farook & Tashfeen MalikAs the investigation continues into the heinous shooting this past week in San Bernardino, California, an all too familiar narrative is once again being heard. That being, “Muslims feel a backlash” since the two people that committed the terror attack, Syed Farook and his wife, Tashfeen Malik was both Muslim.

You Muslims in America are not the victims here.

Will the Left Wake-up Now?

by lewwaters

Frenchman CryingYesterday, as I was posting the previous post, word began breaking over news networks of what we today know was another horrific act of terror from ISIS in Paris as they systematically slaughtered innocent people again.

I refrained from posting on it yesterday, although I did make several comments on my facebook page, as anything I put down here would amount to little more than an anger filled rant.

Even if justifiable, my anger over so many innocents being slaughtered by ISIS on the very same day Obama came out claiming how they “were contained” would not have come across in how I choose to pattern my writing.

Updated: What Was All of That Fuss Back in the 1960’s?

by lewwaters

Civil Rights 2I was born and raised a Southerner, coming of age during the Civil Rights era of the 1960’s when cities were still segregated, Whites on one side of the railroad tracks, and Blacks on the other side in much less maintained neighborhoods.

Much of my formative years was less than three blocks from those tracks with a highly prejudiced Dad frequently ranting about how the Black people needed to “just stay in their place,” while I looked around our own roach-infested shack that was no better than we could see when looking across the tracks.

I can’t say that he hated Black people as did others, he was more stuck in what he was raised believing on somehow, Whites were supposedly better and “it’s just the way things are.”

Couldn’t prove it to me in how he supported us.

Democrats Change of Color

A contrast of the Democrats I grew up under compared to today’s Democrats.

Now, it’s just not worth it?

Thoughts on the Oregon Shooting

by lewwaters

Little is known about the shooter’s motive from yesterday’s shooting at Umpqua Community College, but some information is filtering out and raises questions.

Naturally, there are those that immediately blame the gun and wish to impose more restrictions of law-abiding gun owners, ignoring that criminals like this shooter ignore all laws and restrictions.

But according to a CNN article today, the shooter has a history of mental health issues and had sought mental health treatment.

“AMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!”

by lewwaters

A speech given by U.S. Navy Captain Ouimette back in 2003. Although it has been widely circulated since then, it appears that the very warning he gave has once again been ignored as by and large, Western Civilization has “hit the snooze button and gone back to sleep.”

WTC CollapseAMERICA NEEDS TO WAKE UP!

That’s what we think we heard on the 11th of September 2001 (When more than 3,000 Americans were killed) and maybe it was, but I think it should have been “Get Out of Bed!” In fact, I think the alarm clock has been buzzing since 1979 and we have continued to hit the snooze button and roll over for a few more minutes of peaceful sleep since then.

It was a cool fall day in November 1979 in a country going through a religious and political upheaval when a group of Iranian students attacked and seized the American Embassy in Tehran. This seizure was an outright attack on American soil; it was an attack that held the world’s most powerful country hostage and paralyzed a Presidency. The attack on this sovereign U. S. embassy set the stage for events to follow for the next 23 years.
