How To Cook A Grilled Cheese Without Burning It…

There is a motive for everything anyone does. I am writing this piece for a reason. This Thursday my wife and I will travel to Washington, DC for the 58th Presidential Inauguration to witness history as our 45th President of these united States of America is sworn in. No, I’ve never been to an Inauguration. Yes, I’m looking forward to being a part of history. No, I’m not excited about the crowds, travel, cost involved, etc. But, I am certain it will be a once in a lifetime experience, worth the effort and every dime, and we’ll have great seats.

We are also attending three(3) Inaugural Balls. Ball #1 is Thursday night, the MAGA Inaugural Ball put on by the YRNF (Young Republican National Federation). I am not that young but I am Republican and we are meeting our friend Roger. This will require Ball Gown #1 for my wife, Michele. I’ll be wearing my Tuxedo to all three affairs with different accessories, of course, and try not to get mustard on my jacket lapel the first night.

Ball #2 is Friday night after the Inauguration. This is one of three Official Inaugural Balls hosted by President Trump and First Lady, Melania. Michele will be breaking out the heavy artillery for this one! She will be the prettiest woman in the room in Ball Gown #2 . Again, I’ll be wearing my Tuxedo, cumberbun and bow tie, and looking as dapper as possible.

Ball #3 is Saturday night, the North Carolina State Society of Washington DC Ball. We’ll be rounding turn number four coming into the home stretch. Ball Gown #3 also looks fabulous on my beautiful wife! I’ll be wearing my Tuxedo with vest and bow tie to match my bride’s gown.

So this is exciting! Left-wing liberal progressive protesters with nothing better to do than blockade checkpoints will be doing what they do best… perpetuating Chaos and Confusion to distract the media and victimized zombie viewers.  READ HERE  George Soros (who aided the Nazi cause) funds a lot of this stuff. Watch HERE

When these idoits call Trump a neo-Nazi just remember George Soros is paying them to push this false narrative. This is the real FAKE NEWS.

Antagonists trying to make a name for themselves like Rep. John Lewis and Bono from U2 don’t care about the success or failure of this nation. They only care about their own popularity. Solution ~ primary Lewis and don’t buy the stupid album or T-shirt.

I know the majority of Americans are looking forward to the next four years. We’ll have a pragmatic, common sense, and business sense President Trump leading the way getting Americans back to work and cutting wasteful government spending. If you want to know how to run a Republic get your notepad and pencil ready and tune in for the next four years. It’s about to get interesting. Donald John Trump, I am certain, is going to right many wrongs. This is what our President-elect knows how to do. He doesn’t cook nor does he do auto repair, he fixes business problems and makes them profitable.

If you want to know how to cook a grilled cheese without burning it, don’t ask Donald Trump. Watch the Food Network or ask a good cook but find the one that does it best!

Good luck Mr. President and Godspeed!

Your Work Is Not Done

We had a benchmark historic election in North Carolina and nationally on November 8, 2016. Many are disappointed Governor Pat McCrory was not re-elected. There are questions looming as to why and further analysis by others will follow. The answer is multifaceted. We’ll do that in another piece.

Voter fraud was exposed, as never before. Will those caught red-handed be prosecuted and will the media cover it?

These felonious crimes need to be exposed but have a tendency to get buried. The last minute federal court reversal of the “Voter ID” bill opened the door for Democrats to promote mass confusion and chaos at polling sites with the same day registration provision. Ethics aside, these Alinsky tactics worked but not well enough this time!

Donald John Trump is our President elect and he is sure to stir things up inside the D.C. belt-line and across the nation.

For the naysayers, those that say his provocative manner and big ideas won’t work, allow me to remind you from whence he came.

He doesn’t beat around the bush and he listens to trusted sources that do what they do best. I look forward to the next four years. What a blessing and comfort it is to have real hope for our children and grandchildren and know they actually have chance to prosper. This was a battle worth fighting! On top of that, we have a Republican Congress to back the President moving forward.

Hold them accountable. It is your job and mine! Remember, this is a Republic, not a Democracy!

Eleven (11) of fifteen (15) NC State Court of Appeals judges are Republican. For the first time since Reconstruction we have a Republican Commissioner of Insurance, Mike Causey, at the helm in North Carolina and a new Republican face, Mark Johnson, leading as Superintendent of Public Instruction. Dale Folwell will serve as Treasurer. Dan Forest will serve his second term as Lt. Governor and will run for Governor in 2020.

But as soon as the dust settled on November 8th, a three judge panel decided it was best for us to have a special election under newly drawn House and Senate lines. They know what is best for you and me, right? Opening the door for more gerrymandering? Maybe? So we’ll have a bigger ballot in 2017 with freshly drawn lines, unless the appeal to the Supreme Court is heard, and won. Don’t you love these last minute Alinsky tactics? Don’t you love the fact that these appointees control your fate, only because they can?

crybabyThere is no time to rest, my Right-minded friends. While we have been celebrating, the progressive left is sharpening their spears and strapping on their armor. You might think I’m being melodramatic, but they are not happy campers and the nastiness will continue.

 

Our conservative ethics and morals, our Christian belief system, and our world view don’t lend themselves to surprise attacks and prostituting ourselves for a few pieces of silver. We believe in and promote lower taxes, smaller government, personal liberty (less government invention), just to name a few.

The Democratic party has become full blown socialist in their ideals. Just take a look at their platform. I was ridiculed by a long time Democrat leader in a reply by “letter to the editor” earlier this year for an editorial comparing the Republican and Democratic platforms. Righteous Democrat(s) attempting to defend their party just don’t have a leg to stand on. Their “party” has gotten away from them. For instance, how does one claim to be a Christian yet still support a party platform that promotes full term abortion? They say, “I’m a registered Democrat because my Daddy was, and his Daddy was….” Blah, blah blah. My questions to them would be, “Do you agree with full term abortion and a bloated oppressive government? How about open borders? Do you like the idea that roughly half of the population benefits from tax subsidies that you work to provide to them?” READ HERE

No time to rest. This is a time for preparation for the next battle against progressive liberals lying in wait. Seriously, do you think because Republicans won, these folks just accepted it? Nope. You’ll see more soon, like hoodlum NC NAACP President Rev. Wm. Barber marching on the North Carolina General Assembly and getting arrested all for self promotion and free publicity.hoodlum-barber

The Democrat party is the Party of Oppression, plain and simple. Keeping more people on subsidies like food stamps and welfare benefits their leadership. Government is their provider. Low income single mothers will tell you they are leveraged. It’s better financially to stay home and take care of the children. Why would they work and receive less. That is the fault of government and it’s leadership stemming from New Deal era politics and magnified by Johnson administration. george-sorosIt’s a Ponzi scheme low-life leeches like Barber thrive on. His funding sources, George Soros for one, are eaten up with vindictiveness after their loss. They’ll continue to pay Barber to stir the kettle and Barber will continue to line his own pockets with questionable special interest money.

The Democrats work to enslave as many as they can… slaves to the government and tax subsidies while Republican values are just the opposite. Democrats have “Progressively” put more bread on the table of those who will “play along”. Government has become their God. Government continues to take more and more from the honest, hard-working middle class base that wouldn’t think of taking what they didn’t work for. Despicable, but they must feed the machine that feeds them.

Welfare, food stamps and other subsidies are designed as a “hand up, not a hand out”. We have allowed this ethical shift over time. “It’s 100 miles into the woods and 100 miles out”, as they say. Let’s get to walking!

 

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”.

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.

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 20, 2016

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.

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.

 

 

Perspective On The “Big Business” Boycotts

north-carolinaLet’s begin by putting a few things in perspective regarding business in North Carolina.  The State of North Carolina currently employs 133,865.  This number does not include county and municipal employees totaling an estimated 237,000.  In the third quarter of 2015 North Carolina Small Businesses employed 1.6 million people, or 46.0% of the private workforce.  That’s 97.9% of all employers in the State of North Carolina.

In July, 2015 the estimated population in North Carolina was 10,042,802 (US Census Bureau). Of that number it is estimated that about 62.1% worked full or part-time while the remainder do not work for a variety of reasons. They are either retired, unemployed looking for a job, medically disabled, or not looking for work but collecting welfare and other subsidies.

Using census data, we can deduce that the workforce in North Carolina is comprised of roughly 6,236,500 workers. Here’s the breakdown:

  •  3,500,000 private sector jobs
  •  371,000 state and local government jobs
  •  56,980 federal jobs 
  •  2,308,500 large corporations job/other categories

small business

Well over half of the jobs in North Carolina are provided through small businesses.  With the passage of House Bill 2 (HB2) a few weeks ago which, in part, regulates bathroom usage to that bathroom matching one’s birth certificate, there have be a host of corporations that have taken a reactionary stance against this Bill, along with some entertainers.  In a recent article entitled “Are We Ruled By Radicals… Progressive Mud Slinging Gets Bawdy” we pointed out the political gain attributed to this whole debacle.

trans blog 1

President Obama has even chimed in from London assuring the good people it’s safe to travel to North Carolina….and then stated, “I also think the laws that have been passed there are wrong and should be overturned…”.  

Josh Ellis from Governor Pat McCrory’s office issued a statement in reply,

Governor McCrory agrees with President Obama that all people are welcome to our state and everybody will be treated well with extraordinary hospitality. However, the governor respectfully disagrees with the political left’s national agenda to mandate changes to basic, common-sense restroom norms.”

Over half the jobs in North Carolina can be attributed to the private sector.  The quality of people that create business and jobs for North Carolinians, by and large, don’t have a lot of tolerance for nonsense like corporate boycotts and performing artists pulling their shows. One of the best, Jimmy Buffett performed last night in Raleigh.

And we really don’t care what Springsteen thinks about a “transgender woman” using the urinal. He needs to retire anyway. He can hang out with anyone he chooses to…. on his own dime.

Liberal progressive corporations are free to locate wherever they feel comfortable. Some of them refuse to have their names published. However, the www.dailynewsfix.org will be publishing a list in our next edition. That information will provide the latitude so you may decide whether or not you wish to patronize a business that uses Alinsky tactics to “control the peasants”.

More importantly we should scrutinize over supporting any business that thinks it’s okay to compromise the safety of our children so they can sell one more cup of coffee or a chicken nugget.

Just like the transgender population, we in North Carolina won’t allow 0.03% or a small minority, to control the moral majority. Threatening us won’t work and it never will. With the ingenuity North Carolinians possess we’ll just fill the void when these Corporations head off to Rhode Island or some other liberal haven.  After all our State motto is Esse quam videri, Latin for “To be, rather than to seem”.  Rather appropriate!…. The Daily News Fix says Good Riddance!
