To Win ~ Get Them On The Battlefield!

President Trump is my President. I proclaim that proudly and loudly and if you live in these United States of America he is also your President. But the mainstream media (MSM) doesn’t like your President and neither do some big political figures (mostly of the Democratic variety) and are threatened by President Trump’s very existence, much less the fact he is their President too!

Nothing about President Trump is conventional! He is a genius business magnate unafraid of obstacles. He has a reputation for getting the job done.

The left’s modus operandi is the same old trickery they’ve always used…… create chaos and confusion where there is none diverting attention away from the important matters and swaying popular opinion. It is also designed to keep our President from achieving his agenda.

Donald J. Trump was elected in a decisive victory by electoral college votes. My wife and I were at the Republican National Convention, where she was a Delegate pledged to Trump from day one. We also attended the Inauguration January 20th and other functions. There were many protesters, some paid. They couldn’t win the election fair and square so they are on the prowl, vicious and vindictive!  

I keep having visions of flesh eating zombies, the way these people behave!

These liberal progressive Democrats will do anything it takes to bring President Trump down. Because he is a populist, some first time voters expected immediate results when he took office. You know, just repeal Obamacare by mandate, shut down the EPA, the IRS, destroy ISIS in one week, kick all the Democrats out of Washington…. Drain The Swamp! Nothing happens RIGHT NOW! But it will happen.

If you listen to the wanna be pundits they’ll try to convince you President Trump needs to stop egging on  the liberals with midnight tweets and rogue statements. I disagree!

In order to defeat the enemy you must first identify the enemy. Once identified you lure them onto the battlefield for the kill. Trump is exposing his enemies so he can eliminate the obstacles to achieving his campaign promises. He’s just a whole lot smarter than these liberal nut jobs and they really hate that.

So it is our job as conservatives, assuming you are one, to counter the media hype and that of lying politicians. They all have motives mostly centered around power and money. 

Because, guess what, they are all getting paid to lie! Donald Trump threatens their livelihood and their lifestyle! Status quo is their goal, whereas Donald Trump’s is the opposite.  Trump wants to strengthen the economy and get Americans back to work. 

The shameful display that Rep. Al Green (D) LINKED put up in in the House chambers yesterday demanding the impeachment of our President  is only a diversionary tactic! Another one, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D), aka “Fauxcahontas” wouldn’t know the truth if it came up an shook her hand! She’s been smoking the peace pipe too long and she’s being paid by special interest groups to push their agenda. They are the enemy!

Fire the Director of the FBI? Oh my! That takes cojones, amigo! But it shouldn’t if Comey is not to be trusted. These bureaucrats think they are untouchable.

MSNBC, NBC, CBS, ABC, and CNN are all paid to lie to the public. MSM wants to control the narrative and they do to a degree. They twist it like Playdough into the shape they want you to see. This is how they make a their money! They are threatened by President Donald J. Trump and his administration.

Hang on because it is going to get worse.

They Are Coming For Your Ballot!

After cyber attacks on a few state election board websites the Obama administration may be forcing it’s hand in a big way. This is quite dangerous for all Americans and not to be taken lightly. The federal government has no jurisdiction over election proceedings. This duty is left to our sovereign states. But what do you know, right? The Obama regime has issued the following statement:

“We should carefully consider whether our election system, our election process, is critical infrastructure like the financial sector, like the power grid,”… “There’s a vital national interest in our election process, so I do think we need to consider whether it should be considered by my department and others critical infrastructure,” said Homeland Security Sec. Jeh Johnson

hack the vote

The key words here are “critical infrastucture”…. they are trying to make the case that the states can’t pull off just one more election without help from the federal government. So Obama, the caped crusader, and his Democratic regime are rushing in to “save” the nation from “those bad old hackers” in the name of Cyber security.  This comes two months before the most crucial and defining general election in the history of our nation.

Opinion? For DHS to come in and say “this is what we’re going to do” could be seen as police state activity.

In fact it, the general perception is the Obama regime will do anything to help Hillary win in November…. even forcing control over and rigging this election!

The only legal way the feds could step in and take over election process would be at a state’s request or Congress pass a law. But since there is no time for that and this rogue administration does not respect the law any more than they do you or me, expect another forthcoming “executive order”.

bitch hillary 1

We’ve watched an unqualified vindictive POTUS drive this country into the ground over the last 8 years. If you’ve had enough of the incompetence, his globalist approach to immigration and refugee resettlement, his unwillingness to call out radical Islamic, his repetitive lies…… well you ain’t seen nothing yet. Let Hillary Clinton win this election and we are DONE for as a sovereign nation. Your 1st and 2nd Amendment Rights will be taken. She has already made that promise. This is going to be a real gun fight, friends.

Voting Is A Privilege & Civic Duty

The North Carolina “Voter ID Bill” was recently overturned by a panel of federal activist judges. Plans for One-Stop voting in all 100 counties had already been submitted to the State Board of Elections office. Because of provisions that were in the now overturned “Voter ID Bill” One-Stop or early voting reverted to the 2012 rules.

Each County was given the latitude to choose between the minimum required plan or their own customized plan. Because we have a Republican Governor the Board of Elections members in each County generally consist of two Republicans and one Democrat appointed by their respective County Party Chairmen.

In Lenoir County we believe that all voters can be served adequately during the early voting process by implementing the Board of Elections office as the sole voting place for the minimum required plan. Because a unanimous decision could not be reached by the three board members two very different plans will now go to the State Board of Elections. A few of the majority party’s reasons for the minimum plan include:

• The site will accommodate a substantial number of voting machines.
• The site meets all the physical specifications required.
• The minimal amount of seasonal staff needed.
• All Board of Election staff will be in the adjacent office including the Director and IT personnel.
• Monitor voter fraud more effectively. Lenoir County BOE knows of several cases of attempted voter fraud in the 2012 election.
• Active voters in January, 2012 were 34,656. In January, 2016 the active voters were 31,294, a decrease of 3362 voters or a 9.7% decrease in active voters.
• Lenoir County Board of Elections budget was reduced by $44,000 for tax year 2016.
o The total cost of the proposed plan from the Majority Plan will be approximately $7600 with 106.5 total hours of operation in one location.
o The total cost proposed by the Minority Party will be over $62,000 including rental fees and/or lease agreements for six operating sites with a total of 828 hours, which is excessive in comparison to like-sized counties.

In 2012 there were four One Stop Voting locations, with two sites producing over 77% of the total votes cast. One site, which is no longer available due to unsanitary and unacceptable conditions, was the largest producing site with 49.48% of the total votes cast for the 2012 General Election, is within 2.5 miles of the Lenoir County Board of Elections. The second site, which is no longer an option, is within 8 city blocks of the Lenoir County Board of Elections and produced approximately 28% of the total votes cast in the 2012 General Election.

In conclusion, The Lenoir County Board of Elections site offers ample space to accommodate all voters willing to cast a ballot. The site is easily accessible, well known, and safe for all voters. This proposal also meets the minimum required plan for One Stop Voting.

Voting is a privilege and a civic duty. If you know you will have difficulty making it to of the polls please request an Absentee Ballot from your local Board of Elections office. http://www.co.lenoir.nc.us/boe.html

Reports From the Republican National Convention 2016

Here are three links for submitted and published newspaper columns leading up to and during the RNC 2016. The convention was an awesome experience. Donald J. Trump was nominated as the Republican nominee along with Indiana Governor, Mike Pence as his Vice-Presidential running mate.

July 22, 2016

Because I attended the entire Convention I can remark that it was a positive experience and the first big step in unifying the Republican Party in support of our nominee, Donald J. Trump.  I am a Republican and County Chairman, so I supported ALL the candidates throughout the primary. Since the primary ended and Trump emerged as nominee, I have and will support him in winning the Presidency in November.

Ted-Cruz-downcast-200x200There are some holdouts, however, as we saw at the Convention. While I respect everyone’s opinion and right to support Cruz or Kasich, it is past time to support the nominee. Cruz’s speech at the Convention was counterproductive and selfish. The friction between him and Trump has been no secret, but as an alternative, he could have offered his support in a statement such as,

“I have to decided to offer my assistance to OUR nominee, Donald J. Trump, in beating Hillary Clinton in November and ask you to do the same. It is time to put ALL differences aside, turn the other cheek, and win in November. Otherwise, our country will be unrecognizable in four years.” – (what he could have said but didn’t)

But instead Cruz pontificated for 23 minutes touting his values and his father’s struggles, “freedom”, and “liberty”. As for the wide majority of Delegates, Alternate Delegates and Guests I spoke with “disappointment” was an understatement. What, really, will his inability to “put his pride aside” do to move our nation forward or unify as a party? The answer is NOTHING… it was a selfish move.

Donald-Trump-Strong-200x200

Overall the convention was well organized(seamless) and our Delegation was shown tremendous hospitality by the event staff, residents of Cleveland, the Secret Service, and all Law Enforcement. There was little trouble, even with protesters. Michele and I can’t wait to go back 2020 and we highly recommend the experience. I’ll start putting my change in the jar now and maybe I’ll have enough saved in four years!

It’s time to put your game face on folks! We must win this election. The stakes are too high and there will be no forgiveness once Hillary takes the White House. I’m telling you, we will be doomed.

The Business End Of The Sausage Machine

NC House Bill 2 (HB2) has made a media splash when the North Carolina Legislature countered government overreach dictated by Charlotte’s City Council… their “use whichever bathroom you ID with…” ordinance.  The ordinance was a gross violation of the morals and ethics of the people of North Carolina in so many ways there have been reverberations felt all over the country… and the bathroom floor is still shaking!transgenderthumb

Fascist Government Mandates seem to be quite the trend these days, a tone set by the POTUS, Obama. At first larger corporations were coming out of the woodwork in support of transgenders and their rights. Musicians (if you can call some of them musicians) boycotted North Carolina. However, once a clear message had been sent by the NC Legislature, a representative voice of the people of North Carolina, that these corporations threatening to boycott our State could simply take their business elsewhere, Obama and the Feds launched a separate assault threatening to take away North Carolina education dollars. The general public doesn’t know, but the Feds only contribute about 15% – 20% to our education funding….. only with strings attached, like dangling a carrot in front of a donkey. One example?…. Common Core standards/mandates/decrees.

We don’t take the funding and we aren’t beholden to the Feds or their silly games.  

The liberal progressives will try other forms of blackmail of course. North Carolina launched a lawsuit a week ago against these federal bullies just hours before the Feds launched their own against North Carolina and our Governor.  media-bias-obama

But…ALL of this is just a smoke screen, a diversion in a critical election year.  Those acquiring their “news” from progressive mainstream media to include CBS, NBC, ABC, MSNBC, the NY Times, Charlotte Observer, Winston-Salem Journal, or the News and Observer (just to name a few) are getting the story spun to fit an agenda set by donor dollars. Yes, even FOX has a conservative image to uphold.  These media outlets care about one thing, selling a story…. and we need to remember that.

tranny-at-urinal_400

Most often what comes out of the business end of the sausage machine is a propagandized tie-died remnant of the truth.

Remember, these news outlets depend on advertising dollars to survive and can’t afford to tick off the wrong people…. their existence depends on it. They are bought and sold!

Because of the fissure created when the HB2 firecracker went off, Obama is doing what Obamas do best, issuing more decrees, creating division, and inciting riot …. this time he wants ALL publicly funded schools across the country to comply with his gender neutral bathroom decree.

His ammo? He will unilaterally withhold federal education dollars, the only illegal leverage he has. It’s our belief the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) should be defunded and shut down, the authority and responsibility given back to the States to educate our children.  

Remember this…. North Carolina is a pivotal state in 2016 with the Number 1 Governor’s race and Number 1 Senate race in the country. We are 6th in the nation in delegate count with 72!  We are a threat to Obama’s agenda, Roy Cooper’s agenda, Rev. Wm. Barber’s agenda, and to Hillary’s agenda. The mortar attacks we are experiencing now are only the beginning of what is to come. We should take it very personally!

When Donald Trump is elected as next President of the United States of America he will address the unconstitutional decrees and mandates by simply reversing them.  But until then, until we have a real leader to stand up for the working class, the people that drive this country’s economy, the monkey business will continue. Until we have a real leader to stand up to the corruption in Congress and most importantly the bureaucrats that are holding us all hostage, the monkey business will continue. marsupialsWe need a new zookeeper ….yesterday!

This Election Is NOT About You and Me

Donald-Trump-Strong-200x200As of last night billionaire business magnate Donald Trump is the Presumptive Nominee for President of these united States of America. Social media has gone wild with opinions spanning the spectrum in complete support of Trump to those that threaten to take their toys and go home since their candidate didn’t win, #NeverTrump. Cruz and Trump are very different animals, yet both know how to play the game. Despite what either would have you believe they are both politicians, though Trump has never held public office.

So what price will we pay as a nation if idealist millennials and the religious right allow their emotions to overtake common sense by staying home on election day? Romney lost in 2012 because “Christians” stayed home. Well, Clinton will win.

If social conservatives exhibit obstinance in November our nation will go the way of Communist rule with wealth redistribution, land grabs, socialized medicine and the like. You WILL WAIT for medical procedures just like the next guy no matter your contribution to ‘The System’. America will move even closer to a one world government. UN soldiers and workers along with Dept. of Homeland Security goons will infiltrate every aspect of your life. That’s already underway. Big government is poised for a resistance because bureaucrats run this country, not the President or Congress.

Hillary Is HereThis is what Hillary has been working toward her whole life and the climate is ripe. She studied under Saul Alinsky, a communist community organizer. She is ready to take the throne and force her ideals on the American people, like it or not.

It is our hope that Donald Trump will lay out more specific plans to “make America great again”.  We know he has financial sensibility, is willing to take on the immigration problem and secure our border, will take on ISIS and other international threats directly. Even so, some idealist holdouts will stay home on election day.  We have a chance to put a Republican in the White House again. You may not agree with all his tactics. You may not like his temperament or the way he wears his hair. He may be too far right or left on issues you take to heart. But he WILL BE the Republican nominee come July. It’s time to lay trivialities aside and support our nominee.

This election is not about you and me.  It is about future generations of Americans. You have a choice in November….. Embrace Capitalism or Embrace Communism. It’s that simple. Staying home or not voting for the Republican candidate supports the latter. Choose wisely and unselfishly.

 

 

NC Republican Delegation Still In Peril ~ Lt. Governor Talks to the Daily News Fix

The Daily News Fix recently asked North Carolina Lt. Governor Dan Forest a few questions regarding the current problem with the 2016 Presidential Primaries.  An issue was created when, in 2014, the Republican National Convention (RNC) changed their rules after the North Carolina General Assembly (NCGA), in 2013, had moved North Carolina’s Presidential Primary date to February 16th.  This created a “Problem” because, according to RNC rules, there are only four states allowed to hold primaries prior to March 1, 2016 and NC is not one of them.  The penalty for holding the primary early is having our 72 hard earned delegates stripped to 12 delegates at the National Convention.  The RNC will not amend their rules to remedy our “Problem” here in North Carolina.

In what may have been an honest attempt to stake out strategic ground for NC in the Presidential Primaries, spotlighting and making us relevant, the NCGA has created a big “problem”.  Or was the “problem” created by RNC?  Neither wishes to concede.  But it’s a fact that without a date change we automatically lose 60 delegates.

The reluctance to change the date has some merit.  The Daily News Fix talked to a few NC Senators over the weekend and they were clear in their reasoning.  They do not want to “set a precedent” by reacting to RNC rule changes.  What they would like to see is the RNC agreeing to certain provisions so this bit of history doesn’t repeat itself.  They say Leadership might concede to a date change if an agreement is made with RNC so this sort of thing won’t happen again.  In other words, each would swallow a little pride and move past this while keeping our 72 delegates.  While this is an honorable position to take, when asked the question, “Who has been talking to RNC and what progress is being made?”, there were assumptions but no one could say for sure.  We have stressed in earlier articles in The Daily News Fix that NC’s 72 delegates were earned by the sweat of the brow and belong to the grassroots conservatives that fought in various capacities to attain the Republican Super Majority. It is NOT the right nor privilege of the NCGA to roll the dice with OUR delegates.

~The Interview~

Daily News Fix ~ The 72 delegates to RNC were earned by the grassroots activists that worked to attain a super majority in NC. Wouldn’t you agree that the NCGA would be very shortsighted in keeping the February 16th Presidential Primary date and lose 60 delegates?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “I agreed with the original intent of moving up our primary so that NC could be more relevant in the selection of the President of the United States. However, when the RNC set their rules, stripping early states of their delegates, that changed everything. At a minimum, we should move the date back to March 1, so that we do not penalize our delegation at the National Convention. I personally favor March 22 as a viable date to hold the primary, as we would be the largest “winner take all” state at stake that day.”

Daily News Fix ~ Some legislators were concerned about the timing of the Presidential Primary and the effect that would have on increased sales tax revenue, hence their reasoning for an earlier primary. Isn’t that kind of missing the point?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “I think it is valid to take this into consideration, but remember, when you move it from February to March you are still moving it ahead of where our primary has traditionally been held, which is May. March is still earlier than May, and by putting it in March and keeping our delegation at its full 72 delegate voting strength, you will still incentivize the field of candidates to travel to NC to campaign and bring the economic benefit of these visits to our state.”

Daily News Fix ~ Those advocating for keeping the Feb 16th date claimed the sales tax revenue would offset the cost of 2 primaries totally discounting the fact we would lose 60 delegates. Do you think that justifies a split primary and losing 72?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “Whatever date the General Assembly picks needs to be after March 1. To do otherwise, strips us of our delegates and kills our relevance in picking a Presidential candidate. If NC is only worth 12 delegates and those delegates are awarded proportional, not winner take all, then NC would be worth 2, maybe 3, delegates to the eventual winner. None of the Presidential candidates will make a major push in our state if they can only obtain 2 or 3 delegates by winning it.”

Daily News Fix ~ What do you think about combining the general and Presidential primaries?
Wouldn’t this be a great savings to the taxpayers?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “If we can combine them, I think we should, so as to save the costs of having two primaries. I know there are members of the General Assembly concerned with that and hopefully having discussions to address that issue as this moves forward.”

Daily News Fix ~ What measures would you recommend to prevent voter fatigue if the general and presidential primary are not recombined?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “I don’t think two primaries is enough to cause fatigue. I think it best if they were combined, but more from a perspective of saving money than causing fatigue.”

Daily News Fix ~ For those who say Winner Take All is an unfair method for in the Presidential Primary, what you say to them?
Lt. Governor Dan Forest ~ “I think proportional and winner take all are both fine systems. I prefer winner take all because it makes NC a big prize and incentivizes the candidates to spend quality time, money and effort in our state.”

The Daily News Fix agrees with the Lt. Governor on each point.  However, the question regarding voter fatigue deserves further discussion.  Two primaries are a definite disadvantage when it comes to getting voters to the polls.  What about the volunteers?  Volunteers do just that, they volunteer…. most taking time from work to stand outside the polls all day or work in other capacities throughout the election cycle.  Combining primaries makes good fiscal sense but also keeps volunteers engaged and willing to stay in the fight.

The Daily News Fix thanks Lt. Governor Dan Forest for his stance and his devotion to this issue.  We hope that his voice of reason will influence the NC Senate leadership to take a hard look at moving the date for the 2016 Presidential Primary to March 22, 2016 and combining with general primary.  We hope our readership will take the time to call or visit you NC Senator or Representative in the near future and voice your concerns on this issue.
