Mobilizing the People’s Wing of the Republican Party, to Make Voters Relevant Again

For years we've been talking about the conservative wing and Establishment wing of the Republican Party. I don't want to minimize conservatism here, but conservatism is actually undergoing some redefinition right now, and that redefinition is caused by the impact of the election of Donald Trump, splitting some intellectual conservatives away until they can reassess just where ...

Lenny, Squiggy and Sexual Harassment at Fox

As the old loyalty oaths during the Red Scare used to begin, "I am not now, nor ever have been..." a fan of Bill O'Reilly or his nightly show, "The Factor". I've never watched a single full hour. Some people just take themselves too damned seriously. That said, I'd like to state for the record ... Read More

From My CP: Springtime, Life is Hard and the World is Mean

Spring isn't a season here, Spring is the end of "Winter's Here" and the beginning of "Winter's Coming."  Winter's Here is miserable, too cold to be outside, too long to spend that much time in the house.  Winter's Comin' is a furious rush to get everything done in an 85 to 110 day growing season, ...

He Is Risen – Unified Patriots Wishes All Patriots A Happy Easter

Easter Bible Verses John 11:25-26 Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. (NIV) Romans 1:4-5 And Jesus Christ our Lord was shown to be the Son of God when God ... Read More

If it Sneaks in the Night Like a Raid, and Targets Like a Raid

It's a raid. Dammit. And not a war. A raid is designed to achieve a limited objective. Raids are not impetuous, born of anger or moral no, Ivanka seeing children dead from gas did not prompt this raid. Entebbe was a raid. The Israelis didn't invade Uganda, just snatched some hostages and killed some ... Read More

Am I A Pacifist? Hell No…..Why I Fight Against War

The only reason I fight war overseas in the Middle East is politics. You see I was a rampant supporter of the war in Iraq I saw it and still do to this day as a geopolitical win to have a base or bases sitting right there between Iran and Syria. I also thought having ... Read More

From My CP: Comin’ Up All Aces

Spring has hit the prairie, it hit 60 today and the forecast is for 70+ all weekend.  Rain next week but it is April.  There will be mud and all the foot wipin', sweepin' and moppin' but you don't have to plow the yard.  The farmers are gettin' antsy to get into the field, pretty ... Read More

From My CP: Tales From Life’s Other Side

I spent the weekend at my Grandpa's cabin with my son and his wife.  It's our retreat from a world we are increasingly dissatisfied with.  We've got electricity but could easily adapt to the lack of it.  That kinda lets you know where we stand.  I was disappointed the swans were not to be seen, ...

Photograph: Hannah Mckay/Reuters Two items Trump signed orders on, the day he took office, was to approve the Keystone Pipeline and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Obama had nixed both projects but Trump had made them part of his campaign promises ... Read More

Celebrating the Democrats’ April Fooles Distress

I believe when a bad man is down, kick him. But Rush Limbaugh takes this a step further by making it sound like the Democrat Left is still standing upright, which is not a good thing. (I'll get to that in a minute.) I had waiting in queue a Part VI to my series of ... Read More

From My CP: Family Roadtrip

Spring has hit the prairie, it hasn't been below freezing during the day for a solid week, that's a sure sign of spring.  I have no doubt it'll snow at least once more, it always does.  We got a foot once on my sister's birthday, that's May 11th.  But like horses we can smell the ... Read More

I’m not a Big Fan of Paul Manafort, but….

                           (There are lies, and damned lies..." -Mark Twain) I'm absolutely delirious in my dislike for the Associated Press. And it's all about honesty and dishonesty. Now, personally I've never known Mr Manafort to lie, but I suppose he has uttered an untruth here and there, especially in his term as (unpaid) campaign manager for ... Read More

Plumbing the Depths of Loyalty of Donald Trump’s Voter Base

Plumbing the depths of Donald Trump's voter base, I wonder if maybe Mr Trump thinks it's bottomless. It isn't, and while a master chess player in the art of negotiation, I hope he remembers that most of his voters are better at checkers. Already I am picking up murmurings that Trump is actually favoring the Ryan healthcare plan ... Read More

Should President Trump Offer Amnesty to the Deep State Who Want to Come in From the Cold?

Long title, short answer. We know they are there, and they know we are looking for them. We know some of their names, and they don't know which ones, just that the clock is ticking. They all have vested financial interests in holding onto their jobs; family, friends, lifestyle,, benefits. And they all have political interests that ... Read More

From My CP: Government Employees, the VA, IRS, FBI, EPA, NSA, Ate Up From The Floor UP.

Spring or maybe globull warmening has taken over the prairie.  All the snow from last week is gone, Geese darkened the sky like the arrows of Xerxes archers.  Temperatures topped 70 on Sunday and today was still above 60.  There's rain in the forecast but that beats the hell out of snow.  What ever kind ...

The Judiciary Just Fired On Fort Sumter

The Judiciary was designed by the Framers of the Constitution to be the weakest of the three branches of government. However, the journey from weakest to all-powerful began 10 years later with Madison V Marbury, when the judiciary granted itself veto power over any legislation, and nobody came with ropes to hang them. Had we ... Read More
