 Charlottesville Violence The events in Charlottesville were completely predictable. The ‘offended’ left has moved to needlessly destroy huge chunks of Southern history and tradition over the past few years. PC fanatics have done everything from sweeping the names of Confederate heroes from schools and streets to removing statues and flags from the town square … even denouncing Southern religion. Because of a few political outsiders with an agenda, an entire culture is being swept from view.
 
While those who elected to verbally object to these proceedings were admittedly the wrong people acting in the wrong way, they do represent a much greater contingent that has gone so far as to, once again, talk seriously about secession of the entire South.
 
Add to all this the on-scene appearance of the very people who are perpetrating this cultural demolition — most likely bussed in by the likes of a George Soros or some other other far left radical financier — and you have the recipe for the kind of violence that enveloped the historic Virginia community. Some might even say the whole affair was a setup from the beginning!
 
President Trump did exactly the right thing by not jumping to conclusions the way his predecessor was given to do. Regardless of how tragic the incident, it is important for a responsible leader to have all the facts before assigning blame, lest the flames of hatred be further fanned as has been the practice in the past.

The Tax Bit https://www.quietimtalking.com/2017/03/15/the-tax-bit/ Wed, 15 Mar 2017 18:59:23 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2416 Rachael-MaddowThe Democrats have finally become a parody of themselves. I never watch MSLSD because I didn’t think their other viewer and I would get along very well, but after the skit I saw last night, I may take my chances in the future. Last night Rachael Maddow delivered a comedy routine that rivaled anything Saturday Night Live has put together in years!

With all the alacrity of Tina Fey viewing Russia from her (Sarah Palin’s) front porch and the comic timing of Jackie Gleason’s “Better Living Through TV” Honeymooners episode, Maddow delivered one line after another that had me waiting for someone to ask if she could “core a apple” with the pair of pages she constantly and so joyfully waived in the air! Then, just when I thought it couldn’t get any funnier, she brought out Ralph Kramden and Ed Norton to add further speculation to the supposition stew she had cooked up.

What she had were two scraps of paper that, at best, substantiated President Trump probably needed a new accountant because he had paid more tax than he needed to 12 years ago. At worst she, or actually the Kramden character, was in receipt of stolen goods as the result of a mole, likely somewhere in government, committing a felonious act by releasing unauthorized material from a private citizen’s tax return.

The piling of one “what if, maybe, perhaps or suppose” on top of another surpassed even the height of a Trump skyscraper but without its strength or integrity. If you missed the bit on TV, you must view it online https://youtu.be/IR9ufwueGQs but I warn you, the hilarity lasts an entire hour. The only negative here is that someone might actually take this bit of nonsense seriously, instead of simply enjoying it for the desperate spoof that it represents.

As for Rachael? With her kooky facial expressions and campy delivery, I’m guessing she has a bright future at SNL, Comedy Central, or even right there at MSLSD where they are clearly on a ‘trip’, not a mission!

BlackoutAS A POST SCRIPT:  NBC apparently doesn’t want you to see Maddow making a fool of herself. The link I provided won’t work because they have just withdrawn the video of this program and “blocked it in your country on copyright grounds”.  Guess that’s our “free press” at work these daze!

Trump Triumph! https://www.quietimtalking.com/2017/03/01/trump-triumph/ Wed, 01 Mar 2017 17:23:23 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2405
Trump-Speaks-PostLast night wasn’t just Donald Trump giving a speech. It wasn’t Donald Trump businessman, candidate or even President-elect giving a speech. Last night was The President of the United States addressing both houses of Congress. As Ol’ Lefty Chris Wallace even said on FOX, “Whatever you believe, whatever side you are on, tonight Donald Trump became The President!”
 
Interrupted 94 times in 60 minutes, watching the likes of Nancy Pelosi having a hissy-fit in her seat, and seeing an increasing number of Democrats applaud as President Trump soared in the House Chamber, proved that you can fly with eagles if you don’t get bogged down by turkeys!
 
In contrast, the Democrat response was given by an old guy in a flannel shirt from a greasy diner, who didn’t seem quite sure whether he was a Republican or Democrat. I kept hoping someone would buy the poor old coot a cuppa’ joe. There really is a message there, somewhere.

Objects May Appear Larger https://www.quietimtalking.com/2017/02/15/objects-may-appear-larger/ Wed, 15 Feb 2017 17:00:50 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2377 Ant MagfdWhen initially taking office, most U.S. Presidents historically receive what has been referred to as a honeymoon period that usually lasts at least a couple of months.  In President Trump’s case, it was more like “wham, bam, thank you man” … no honeymoon, not even foreplay, just a pure, raw bumping of uglies right from the start!

The Democrats not only have a problem accepting their defeat in November, they can’t even admit to themselves the reasons they lost.  Instead of channelling their energies into rebuilding their decimated party, they have focused on discrediting the new president and trying to block his administration from achieving the goals for which the voters gave him a mandate … even bringing down The President himself, if possible.  So far, with help from a compliant media, and a few extremely wealthy donors on the left, progressive Democrats have been able to make a very small minority look as though they represent some kind of majority.  It’s sort of like looking at an ant with a magnifying glass, and equally as deceptive.

What they seem to ignore with their violent and vocal onslaughts is that, for more than a year, thousands of people turned out for Trump rallies in record numbers — braving heat, sleet, snow, verbal abuse and sometimes even physical attacks — just to be a part of his historic campaign.  With overwhelming support they made him their candidate, then in November, with an electoral landslide, made him our President!

President Trump has, in a matter of weeks, accomplished more for America and fulfilled more campaign promises than most presidents in six months … and in the case of his predecessor, more than was achieved in EIGHT years!  Is there any reason to believe, as progressive Democrats and their minions would have you believe, that all those supporters are suddenly dissatisfied and changing their minds about their presidential selection?  Many are upset with a congress that is getting cold feet about immigration restrictions, repealing the Unaffordable Care Act and implementing tax reform … furious with Democrat hacks who are engaged in outright obstruction, trying to prevent an historically smooth transition of power and the rightful formation of a new government. As for all the noise, what we mostly hear are bought and paid for agitators.   Make no mistake, voting Americans are more solidly behind our President than ever.

It’s really pretty simple:  Those on the left didn’t take Mr. Trump seriously.  They painted him as some sort of buffoon and created a false caricature that they could hold up to the public … then they fell for it themselves!  They didn’t think he could win, didn’t listen to what he was saying, didn’t understand the changes the American people were demanding, and perceived that THEY were the mainstream  of thought, the center of the universe.  Now that President Trump is in the Oval Office and keeping his word, they are SURPRISED to see what is happening … now they are imploding, because the progressive left still has nothing new to offer, nothing but the same old anarchy and national decline.  Now We The People want more and it’s a movement much bigger than even President Trump himself, and he acknowledges that reality!

I don’t know why I even bother anymore except it’s great entertainment, especially with the part time amateurs that show up on the weekend. They have everything backasswards and are as clueless about President Trump, and what’s coming their way, as they are about the amount of gravitational pull on Jupiter.

At one point when I stopped laughing and picked myself up off the floor, I heard one character actually said that Mr. Trump, and I quote, “Has to learn to become a political leader” since he comes from a non-political background. The same dull witted mook then offered that “Trump is moving too fast and has to slow down” because politicians aren’t used to moving at this kind of pace. Apparently he sees getting things done as a “Haphazard governing style.” This Sunday wonder has to be a ‘swamp guy‘ and he’d better be careful not to trip over the drain cork.

For the record, the so-called resistance is going to continue as long as the money financing it holds out … and, sorry, but I’m afraid this is what fixing a broken country looks like. Democrats are going to have to get used to the idea that they lost “big league” and have no power. Republicans need to get rid of their cold feet and realize that time has come to actually deliver on the campaign promises they made. EVERYONE is going to have to adjust to President Trump’s do it bigger, better, faster, and under budget mode of operation … because it isn’t going to happen any other way!

Bringing There to Here https://www.quietimtalking.com/2017/01/29/bringing-there-to-here/ Sun, 29 Jan 2017 16:44:05 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2360 Immigrants-EllisI’m really getting tired of hearing how we are a nation built by immigrants.  Anyone who took American History 101 knows that … unless they were educated in the past quarter century or so while it was being rewritten.  The difference between those original immigrants and today’s border-jumpers or Middle-Eastern invaders is that they came here legally, with a desire to assimilate into our culture, to follow our Constitution, contribute to our country and become Americans … not to change anything, blow it up or drain the system of its wealth.  One of my favorite political commentators likes to say, “You can’t bring there to here without changing here to there.”

The immigrants who built America were sponsored and expected to work.  They were admitted under quotas, with intense screening for health, nationality, political views, personal intent, skills and, yes, religion.  Those not meeting our criteria were sent back to their countries of origin.  They arrived here over a great many decades, not in a stampede within a few months or a few years, learned our language, abided by our laws and our customs, while [secondarily] preserving their own heritage.  They were admitted because of need or desire, not for political purposes or to satisfy an agenda.

No one has the RIGHT to come into America.  It is a privilege that we extend to those deserving of it and there are specific procedures to be followed in order to get here and to stay here.  Contrary to what many on the left or bought and paid for anarchist crowds — or illegal aliens making unwarranted demands while burning our flag — would have you believe, we are a compassionate nation but a nation of laws.  This is who we are, who we have always been, and the broad diversity of talent woven into a single fabric is what has made America exceptional, what has made America great!

Give Me Your Tired, Hungry and Loyal https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/12/30/give-me-your-tired-hungry-and-loyal/ Sat, 31 Dec 2016 01:04:59 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2349 screen-shot-2016-12-30-at-8-01-14-pmWouldn’t it have been interesting if, at some point during the Presidential campaign, one of the candidates asked, “Oh, by the way, has anyone in Washington DC ever heard of the McCarran-Walter Act Of 1952?  I didn’t know about this act until a friend sent me the link in an eMail, but it has been a law for almost 65 years.  Here are the historic facts that would seem to indicate that many, if not most, of the people we elect to work for us in Washington D.C. do not have the slightest idea of what laws already exist in OUR country.

After several terrorist incidents were carried out in the United States, Donald Trump was severely, criticized for suggesting that the U.S. should limit or temporarily suspend the immigration of certain ethnic groups, nationalities, and even people of certain religions (Muslims).  The criticisms condemned such a suggestion as, among other things, being Un-American, dumb, stupid, reckless, dangerous and racist.  Congressmen and Senators swore that they would never allow such legislation, and our  President called such a prohibition on immigration unconstitutional.  Many took up the cry of, “We’re better than that!”  Really?

As Gomer Pyle would say, “Well, Surprise, Surprise!” It seems that the selective immigration ban is already law and has been applied on several occasions.  Known as the McCarran-Walter Act, the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952 allows for the “Suspension of entry or imposition of restrictions by the President, whenever the President finds that the entry of aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States. The President may, by proclamation, and for such a period as he shall deem necessary,  suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or non-immigrants, or impose any restrictions on the entry of aliens he may deem to be appropriate.”

Take a wild guess who last used this process?  Hint:  It’s a Democrat!  Surprise again …  it was president Jimmy Carter, no less than 37 years ago, in 1979, to keep Iranians out of the United States!  Actually Carter did even more.   He made ALL Iranian students, already in the United States, check in with the government. And then he deported a bunch of them. Seven thousand were found in violation of their visas, and a total of 15,000 Iranians were forced to leave the USA in 1979.

So, what say you about all of the criticism that Donald Trump received from the Democrat Senators, Representatives and the Obama Administration?  By the way, it is important to note that the McCarran-Walter Act also requires that an “applicant for immigration must be of good moral character and in agreement with the principles of our Constitution.”  Therefore, one could surmise that since the Quran forbids Muslims to swear allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, technically, all Muslims should be refused immigration to America!

Media Fantasy https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/11/25/media-fantasy/ Fri, 25 Nov 2016 20:10:41 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2339 media-childrenAt this point, I’m getting a YUUGE kick out of watching the media rush from one end of the planet to another trying to keep up with President-Elect Trump and bellyaching about having to do it! After treating him like something you’d scrape off your shoe for more than a year, do they really expect some kind of consideration? In fact, these pitiful sots are still at it, tossing everything at him but the upstairs commode! What do they think he is, a politician or something?

Even funnier is the campaign in chaos routine. I wish someone would inform the press and pundits that the campaign is over and what they are witnessing is the formation of a new, ‘action-packed’ government unlike the typical old-boy Washington model. This one will work in practice and serve The People … not the lobbyists, big buck contributors, or the politicos’ own self-interest.

As for folks leaving his organization, bear in mind the new President is very particular in his hiring practices and exacting in his expectations for performance. No less will be demanded of those in his new administration than those in current Trump corporate entities, where only the best of the best are retained!

foundersTuesday’s election is more than choosing between two people, it’s choosing between two different ways of life for ourselves, our children, and their children. Not only will the outcome affect the Supreme Court but thousands of other appointed judgeships from sea to shining sea. Do we want to be a soft dictatorship, with few rights, high taxes, limited opportunity and a bloated government making decisions for us and running our everyday lives … or a free constitutional republic, with individual liberty, a small government, keeping more of what we earn and the right to make our own decisions about how and where we live and who we are? Clinton’s appointments will tilt our courts to the left and produce the former; Trump’s appointment of Conservative judges assures the latter.
 
Hillary Clinton’s global society, with no borders and open trade will keep us on the same path of stagnation and chaos we see in the failing nations of Europe and create a wholly dependent society. Donald Trump’s vision for change will return us to the kind of personal opportunity and prosperous America our founding fathers envisioned when they designed a free and independent nation, unique in the history of mankind … a kind of back to the future. This election is NOT ABOUT OBAMA’S LEGACY, it’s about OURS!

He never compromised national security, sold stockpiles of American uranium to an adversary, peddled influence, negotiated a worthless nuclear deal, paid terrorists ransom for hostages, destroyed our healthcare system, disrespected police, gutted our military, insulted our veterans, paid thugs to riot in our streets, supported anarchist groups or compromised our national sovereignty.

He never did any of those things, never had the power to, yet Mr. Trump’s detractors say he is not qualified to be president. Really?

Worth Another Look https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/10/19/worth-another-look/ Wed, 19 Oct 2016 18:49:04 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2295 puzzlethemissingpiece-postI keep hearing about “experience” being such an important factor in the election. First of all, nobody entering the presidency has experience … not unless they’ve done it before and, with a two term limit, they haven’t. Secondly, while Donald Trump’s experience built a large, successful business empire, Hillary’s foreign relations experience gave rise to most of the problems we have with The Middle East and Russia. She, also, clearly understands very little about how business or economics work in the private sector. Experience can be valuable all right, but only if it’s GOOD experience!

So far, as voters, we have talked out of both sides of our mouths, much like the politicians we keep electing … one standard for discussion and another when we actually cast our ballots. We keep saying we want an outsider, someone with the experience to fix the economy and get America growing again … but in the previous two elections we have opted for a “business as usual” politician and rejected the outsider, ostensibly because of a lack of “experience” in government.  Really?  So into the porcelain fixture we go, yet again, with one hand on the flusher and the other clutching our noses!  Maybe it’s time we began voting with our heads instead of our fears about the “change” we say we want.

Trump is being measured against the standards of a politician.  It’s the wrong standard … like measuring a football field with a stick graduated in meters instead of yards.  You’re going to come up short!  What if you asked Hillary, or any other politician to build a skyscraper or operate a casino, how do you suppose they would do?  Off Track Betting in New York should give you some idea: They were probably the first legal gambling operation on earth to go broke!  Isn’t it about time we started using an independent-outsider stick to measure The Donald’s worth rather than the insider stick graduated with a ‘more-of-the-same’ scale?  Trump has the proven gift of surrounding himself with exactly the right people to do the job and tolerates no incompetence.  Hillary’s choices, on the other hand, and how they have advised her speak for themselves. If we’re seeing “the high road” from the Democrats, with their daily diatribe of personal accusations instead of offering substantive programs, I’d hate to see what “the low road” looks like!

America is broken. We need jobs, economic stability and growth. We also need law and order and safety at home, respect from our allies and fear from our enemies abroad. We need a leader who is responsible to us, not to special interests and secret global arrangements. We need someone with experience in areas that serve The People and the nation, as opposed to the inner-workings of a Washington elite. Donald Trump meets those criteria. I remember Herman Cain’s answer in 2012 when asked about his knowledge of how government works in Washington and he replied, “It doesn’t.” That hasn’t changed and our present state of chaos and corruption testifies to it. America needs to be fixed.  If you had a pipe that was about to burst, do you suppose you would call a politician or might a plumber make more sense?  Think.

Quit While You’re Ahead? https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/10/18/quit-while-youre-ahead/ Tue, 18 Oct 2016 23:22:08 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2301 crazy-hillary-1Rumor has it that Hillary Clinton is being advised to skip the last presidential debate.  It would be the final act of panic in her attempt to place the crowning jewel in her plastic tiara!  Maybe Hillary discovered during the second debate that Donald Trump is no pushover and, without a boatload of drugs to control her debilitating medical conditions, she wouldn’t last twenty minutes on her feet.  In fact, according to one Wikileaks eMail, she has been having to cling to a podium to remain vertical since at least 2009!

Typical of the Clinton politics of personal destruction, she plunged the campaign straight into the gutter, and suddenly it’s backfiring. The media has been covering for her up to now by practically ignoring the many devastating Wikileaks revelations, which she can’t afford to have ‘The Donald’ parade in front of a national audience before the election.   Then there are her phony [Bill-like] groping accusations toward him which are crumbling one-by-one and the withering firepower of Trump himself.  Add to this his call for drug testing, her inability to win on the issues, and Hillary, along with her lame excuses, is toddling toward the nearest safe space!

If she bails out, Clinton will clearly be trying to avoid confrontation with a more conservative moderator like Chris Wallace and having to respond to questions she dare not address in front of the public. If she is not adequately medicated and has to face ninety minutes of the YUUGE number of arrows Mr. Trump now has in his quiver, which could easily pierce her tissue of lies, deceit, and disdain for a wide segment of the American people, her chances of ruling our nation from the White House could finally be ended once and for all!

A Slip Of The Lip https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/10/08/a-slip-of-the-lip/ Sat, 08 Oct 2016 17:20:53 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2289  

Okay, so Donald Trump has said some pretty cringe worthy things. I want to meet the person who hasn’t … the ‘appropriately shocked’ Hillary Clinton is legendary for her own language, whether attacking her husband, addressing members of the military or deriding her Secret Service detail. Any woman who doesn’t think her own special heart-throb hasn’t engaged in this kind of conversation either still believes you find babies under cabbage leaves or is spending her life with some character who suffers from low testosterone, exfoliates his chest hairs and spends half his life looking for a ‘safe space’. It’s not disrespect. It’s guys! We think with our glands!

There is a YUUGE difference between talk and action. Trump has talked. He has not committed predatory acts of abuse like Bill Clinton or tried to cover them up by destroying the lives of victims like Hillary. He has also never raised our taxes, voted for a war, cost American lives, lied to families of the fallen, mishandled national security information, sold political influence to our adversaries, transferred twenty percent of American uranium deposits to the Russians or negotiated a disastrous Iranian agreement that virtually guarantees them nuclear capability. Neither has Trump plunged The Middle East into turmoil, helped give birth to the likes of ISIS, brushed aside the fact we are at war, or refused to even say the name of our enemy … Radical Islamic Terrorism.

Trump does not want open trade and open borders, is not in favor of a global society, does not want to turn American sovereignty over to the United Nations, will not import 500% more foreign invaders, will not ignore the U.S. Constitution, bypass Congress, take our 2nd Amendment rights away by executive order or curtail free speech.

What he will do is appoint Conservative judges to the Supreme Court and thousands of judgeships across the country, use his vast business experience to restore jobs and our economy, renew respect for our nation in the world, rebuild our infrastructure, restore our inner cities, put a halt to the Judeo-Christian erosion that has been occurring over the past several years, improve our educational and healthcare systems, restore law and order, and put an end to the epidemic of political correctness that has been eroding freedoms in America. Trump has a perspective for our nation above self, and will institute programs that will provide opportunity, keep us safe, keep us free and make America great again! Hillary does not.

It’s really pretty simple. Candidates aside, on November 8th we will vote either to be a nation of free individuals, making our own choices, responsible for our own lives … or a global collective, governed by a ruling class, dependent upon their authority to make our choices and dictate every aspect of our lives.

Are Donald Trump’s remarks of more than a decade ago okay? No. Are they unusual, particularly for a guy, but let’s not leave out the ladies? No … it’s everyday locker room banter. In fact, I have a feeling those acting most horrified are the ones with the most skeletons in the biggest closets! On the other hand, what a terrific opportunity for insiders dragged kicking and screaming to support an outsider in the first place, to finally bail out … just look who is running fastest for the hills leaving their candidate twisting in the wind.

I am reminded of a Woody Allen statement, “I wouldn’t want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.” If Americans are willing to let the most important election of our lifetime turn on an occasional casual comment, by a patriotic truth teller who doesn’t politically filter every utterance … thus allowing the coronation of a woman who says she needs one public persona and one private; a woman whose criminal actions have long since blurred the line between right and wrong, honesty and falsehood … then I’m ready to turn in my membership card and sit in a dark room with my tattered flag, because America has already slipped into the abyss.

Trump Lawsuits Exposed https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/09/21/trump-lawsuits-exposed/ Wed, 21 Sep 2016 22:34:45 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2272 Hillary Clinton has charged that Donald Trump doesn’t pay his employees, doesn’t pay his bills and is being sued by all sorts of disgruntled clients and contractors for ripping them off.  Once and for all, let’s look at his record and tear through this tissue of Democrat lies.

Over the past 30 years, Mr. Trump has been involved with 3,500 lawsuits, which break down as follows:

  • 1,900 he was the plaintiff
  • 1,450 he was the defendant
  • 150 were bankruptcy or third party lawsuits
  • 451 Trump won
  • 38 Trump lost
  • 500 suits were dismissed
  • 175 were settled

Not a bad average for a reprobate … if he were playing baseball instead of building skyscrapers, Trump would be Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig all rolled into one!   Looking at the nature of these actions only 60, or about 1.7 lawsuits per year, were not because he was ‘stiffing’ anyone but because work that he had contracted for was either done poorly or not completed.  When I built our home (55 different sub-contractors – can’t imagine how many for a 100 story building), I didn’t pay for shoddy or incomplete work either … so sue me!

About half, or 1700, were ‘ordinary American’ lawsuits.  Most had to do with Mr. Trump’s casinos where either patrons didn’t pay their debts and collection actions were necessary, or ‘slip and fall’ type cases where someone may have skated on a wet floor or perhaps had a hand nipped by a hungry elevator door.

By the way, as for his four highly touted bankruptcies:  The average business fails an average of 3 to 4 times before, if ever, achieving success.  Given his many hundreds of businesses, and possibly thousands of deals, four is an astonishingly low number.  That either makes Donald Trump a bonafide genius or a mighty lucky man … or maybe some of each.

So the next time you hear Hillary Clinton, the media or any other Democrat operative bad mouthing Mr. Trump’s business acumen, remember to do a little digging.  There is usually the story you heard and then there is the truth!

Not What They Seem https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/04/30/not-what-they-seem/ Sat, 30 Apr 2016 14:28:28 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2250

Cruz-KasichI’ve stopped listening to anything either Ted Cruz or John Kasich are saying anymore. I’m looking only at their behavior and if I hadn’t been for Trump from the beginning, I’d have been driven to support him by now. I can’t believe there are still people who don’t recognize the overwhelming lack of integrity, absence of ethics, paucity of scruples and perhaps even morals in the actions of these two sorry sots. They have come to represent all of the insults we have been forced to endure for the past 7-1/2 years … everything they’ve claimed to be running against, the very things that have given rise to the candidacies of Trump and even Sanders as outsiders.

Their desperation has driven these two colluders into an unholy alliance that ignores any sense of fair play, marginalizes the role of The American People and focuses only upon their own political self-interest, not the good of the country. Our nation’s capitol is already overflowing with these types. This is not how you win an American election. With each passing day, Cruz and Kasich become more distant from the kind of leaders our country needs at this point in history … they are the wrong men at the wrong time, attempting to snake their way into the wrong job. They are not unknown but are unpredictable. We had such a candidate in both 2008 and 2012 and we see how that has turned out!  Fool me … thrice?  Really?  How can we trust either of these men in the Oval Office if they show such a lack of trustworthiness and contempt for The People already?

In a race you win by running, by competing, not by coercing or pilfering, whether it’s backdoor deals or delegates. At best, it can only lead to hollow victory.  At worst, there is no honor in tripping your competitor before he reaches he finish line, and men without honor never really win but only live on in disgrace. Whatever else one may think of Donald Trump, he is an honorable man and is running to serve America, not some arcane ideology. He is a man of principle, integrity and good will, not a man of deceit as the actions of Cruz and Kasich are revealing them to be!

Political Tyranny https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/04/09/political-tyranny/ Sat, 09 Apr 2016 17:17:39 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2240 smoky roomsThe Grand Old Party is rigging their presidential primary race even worse than the Democrats!  Donald Trump is winning with the American People but the election is being stolen in those clichéd smokey back rooms.  They’re dealing for delegates even before the primary voting takes place!  In case you thought your vote — fought and paid for by millions of heroes for more than 200 years — means something, think again!  We need Trump and Cruz to, somehow, bury their differences and unite as a third party, relegating whatever candidate the establishment inserts to third place and the GOP to oblivion!

Many Republican elitists who say they would rather lose the election than see Mr. Trump in the White House had better be ready to give up both houses of Congress and the Supreme Court for generations to come if they permit the Democrats to win.  That would mean losing America permanently!  Right now, they are on just such a suicide mission.  Losing one third of the GOP electorate is probably a conservative estimate, if they continue on their present course.

We The People on both sides of the aisle have had it to the brim with authoritarians shoving their collective will down our throats and, today, may easily have more reason to make systemic adjustments than our forefathers did in 1776.

Teddy Goes To New York https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/03/23/teddy-goes-to-new-york/ Wed, 23 Mar 2016 21:23:55 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2231

CruzNow, this is the big city Ted and people walk real fast, sometimes they even bump into you and don’t even apologize. The choo-choo runs underground here, so the rumble you hear isn’t an earthquake and yes, it does stop so you can get on … yes, it does stop Ted.

 
If you see a marquis that says “Live Nudes” it doesn’t mean as opposed to dead ones, it means instead of moving pictures … and you might hear people say words like “hell” and “damn” or even worse. Folks in the big city pretty much say what they mean, so don’t hurt your head trying to figure out what they are really trying to say. If tell you they don’t llke you, chances are they don’t. Sometimes when people run, they aren’t always exercising … someone might be chasing them so you might want to stand clear and not try to explain your fiscal policy or hand out a campaign button just then. Most of these folks are probably Democrats anyway, so you won’t be losing very much by giving it an “Aw shucks” shuffle and focusing on your shoe tops.
 
Many people here are fairly emotional about things, so your silver tongued logic may not work on, say, a guy standing in front of a bar who asks you for a buck to buy dinner. If someone living in a doorway tells you it’s his, it probably is. If anyone calls you “Sucka'”, talks about his “Homies” or refers to you as “Bro” just smile and keep walking. I wish I had the room here to tell you more about what you will encounter in this strange, enchanting land … the attitude, the morals, the New York values, but I think you’ll discover the rest for yourself by the time you’ve had your good suit cleaned and your stitches are ready to come out!

Ruining For President https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/03/18/ruining-for-president/ Fri, 18 Mar 2016 20:16:40 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2222 Voting-smI just watched an hour of news … an hour of hate! Everyone but the voters seems to be out to get Donald Trump … and Cruz whom I once liked, has turned into one of the most lying, devious SOBs I’ve seen in politics during my lifetime and there have been quite a few. Personal destruction is not supposed to be how we pick a president in the United States.  Funny thing is, Cruz and the Kasich are so busy bad-mouthing The Donald that he turns out to be the only one whose programs I actually understand.  The other two aren’t talking about issues … except making an issue of propelling Hillary Clinton into the presidency, by way of their misguided vitriol!

By the way, as to Ted Cruz’s allegations that Mr. Trump may, in the past, have had some kind of ties to organized crime, it didn’t seem to hurt JFK while he was in office or trying to get there … and some of his ties were pretty tight!  As for Ted, he has ties to folks in Washington that make the Mafia look like a bunch of choir boys! (Of course, we all know there is no such thing as the Mafia, but there are plenty of politicians to go ’round).

I hope the Republican party understands the reality that, if they listen to panicky Democrats and lose the November election by not supporting The People’s choice, they will exist no more.  Stick a fork in ’em, they’re done, finished, “goodbye, farewell, auf wiedersehen, adieu” as they sang in The Sound of Music … only this will truly be the GOP’s swan song and it won’t be pretty!

Who’s In The Tank https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/03/15/whos-in-the-tank/ Tue, 15 Mar 2016 23:34:04 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2216
Establishment-smI keep hearing Ted Cruz interviews where he insists that Mr. Trump is not just part of but IS the establishment. First, let’s define what the establishment is … there are two. One is the POLITICAL establishment, where anything is possible, except for the American dream anymore. The other is most of the rest of us folks who are law abiding, work hard and generally play by the rules. Trump is part of the latter while Cruz is part of the former, like it or not.
 
Problem is, if you’re using a yardstick graduated in meters to measure a football field, you’re going to come up short. That is what a lot of people, including Cruz, are doing when they look at The Donald. Even if ol’ Twistin’ Ted were right … if they want to catch a jewel thief, who do the cops hire, another cop? No. They hire (wait for it) A JEWEL THIEF! Either way, Ted had better concentrate on Ted, not on Donald, because the sharks in the political establishment tank are after him too … they’re only chasing Trump first because, right now, he’s swimming faster!

A Question of Values https://www.quietimtalking.com/2016/03/12/a-question-of-values/ Sat, 12 Mar 2016 20:01:56 +0000 https://www.quietimtalking.com/?p=2208 valuesIt was most interesting to spend a few hours of sanity, watching the grace and elegance of the Nancy Reagan funeral … to spend a few hours back in America! It stood in stark contrast to the ‘hallelujah anointing’ of Ted Cruz as president by the Holy Ghost and the paid violence by the great unwashed in Chicago at the Trump rally. It also contrasted sharply with the following Neil Cavuto show, which picked right up on FOX’s Trash Trump Campaign where Mayhem Kelly and company left off when I last mistakenly tried to watch the station.

Cavuto opened with the verbal emissions of some young punk named Ron Meyer, purportedly from The Washington Examiner, who didn’t look old enough to even have an opinion, let alone spew it to an audience. He needs to pay more attention to healing that big cut under his nose, rather than picking it open in public. I’m sick and tired of hearing people like Obama, Clinton or this little puke telling me what ‘our’ values are or aren’t. I can promise you this kid does not have values shared by most Americans or even have an inkling of what they might be.

The amazing thing to me is how all of these Trash Trump Guys just don’t get it … the more you falsely attack the man, the more you cement the bond with his supporters. Critics wonder what the big attraction is? Simple. Trump reflects the anger, fears and concerns of most Americans … what they feel, what they think, and what they have been brow-beaten into not expressing publicly.

What do folks want? What are ‘our’ values? Refer to the Nancy Reagan funeral and the profound utterances of the man she loved so dearly. Then realize that a great number of people believe that an avenger like Donald Trump may be the fastest way back to the real America!  As for FOX … I really can’t abide their new leftist mantle anymore and I’m guessing there are plenty of people who feel the same way.  I think they’d better look at some old broadcast tapes before it’s too late.
