I say what I mean, and I mean what I say.


Championing Conservative Values in America

JUN / 10 / 2019

Clueless In Chicago

"Most violence in the American ghetto involves blacks killing other blacks. This is complicated for liberals and Democrats."

Another summer in the City of Chicago starts with a bang. No pun intended as 52 people were shot, 10 fatally in street violence. On Memorial Day it was 30 shot with five killed. That’s right. You read that correctly: 82  people shot leaving 15 dead—not in the first five months of the year—not in the last 30 days— not even in the previous week! Two weekends is all it took. 

For Democrats, Even When It’s Over, It’s Never Over

Their beloved Hillary Clinton is, not surprisingly, also delusional. She continues on her whirlwind tour across the globe, claiming that she was denied her place in history as the first woman President of the United States because the election was stolen from her. 


Slouching Toward Anarchy

Former President Barack Obama issued his infamous statement to form laws more to his liking with his “pen and his phone.” The Department of Justice—namely the FBI—decided that the process and rules for investigating Americans did not apply to them. They operated lawlessly rationalizing that they self-righteously needed to save the country from a duly elected president they did not like.


Deaths Of Children At The Border: The Rest Of The Story

Recently there have been three news reports of children dying in the U.S. while in custody of the U.S. Border Patrol. That phrase, “while in custody of” is used to imply that the child would be alive today if only the Border Patrol had let them illegally trespass without interruption. If a child dies in a hospital, the media rarely claims that the child died “while in the custody of” a hospital. It doesn’t have the same impact. Every media outlet in America knows that a news story about the death of a child is emotionally heartbreaking.



Being risk averse will speed up your acceptance into the GOP’s ‘good old boys’ club—also known as the United States Senate. If you ingratiate yourself with fear of ever going near anything that might give the left cause to attack—as if the left needs a reason to excoriate conservatives—your acceptance will be welcome with open arms.


Underperformance Led To DHS Secretary Nielsen’s Forced Resignation

President Trump is doing all the heavy lifting on border security. He’s getting very little help from both parties in Congress. He needs a staff that clearly understands and fully supports his policies and directives. No more catch-and-release means precisely that. Nielsen began many of her responses to border security by telling us what she can’t do.


The Cruel Joke of Reparations

The first point I want to make about the reparations is that we are talking about torts made to people who have been harmed by someone’s action. It is how our civil law system tries to make people whole. They give them money. It’s all they can do to punish someone. Reparations would have to be paid out of the U.S. Treasury. That would require taxpayers living today to have to pay. Our system of jurisprudence in the United States has always been premised on identifying a specific person for having directly harmed another person in some way and punishing that person directly. That is very hard to do since past slave-owners are dead. A case could be made for and by former slaves. But, they are also dead. You don’t make up for wrongdoing by punishing people not directly involved in something nor their descendants 150 years later. Not all whites owned slaves. How are Democrat candidates Kamala Harris, whom we learned is a descendant of Jamaican slave owners herself, Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, whom each has called for reparations, going to determine which white folks had ancestors who owned slaves? Or should we punish all of them to make sure we got everybody? Even the white people of European descent who came here through Ellis Island long after slavery had ended. Are they guilty too?


Washington Follies: The Mueller Report

It is important to recall that Special Counsel Robert Mueller was tasked with investigating whether then candidate and now President Trump and his campaign colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election and, now listen to this because this is key, “other related matters.” If you take into consideration the people who were charged as a result of this probe, it spent more time on “other related matters” than it did on actual Russian collusion. Why? Because there was no evidence of collusion from the beginning. Many of those indicted were charged with process crimes like misremembering during FBI questioning or illegal activities not associated with the Trump campaign. Some of the indictments included tax evasion, lying to Congress, financial fraud, money laundering, identity fraud, and failing to register as an agent of another government. These are some of the more serious indictments. None of these charges had anything to do with Trump colluding with Putin to steal his 2016 election win.


Keep Hate Alive!

Gay and black advocacy groups should be incensed with Smollett, but at this point, they have been silent. Smollett has cast doubt on real claims of gay and black assaults based on skin color and sexual orientation in the future. This is not something to be taken lightly. Smollett knew he had the advantage of his celebrity and platform to stage this hoax. However, he ended up flying a bit too close to the sun.


2018 Midterm Post Mortem

The GOP in 2018 had no plan to deal with the 40 or so vacancies. It must be asked how they neglected to anticipate that mass exodus? Their bench, for the most part, was underwhelming. Their plan was to simply hang on. In politics, you must always stay on offense and be advancing. Holding on is a losing strategy. The GOP offered no vision that energized the base or that would win over independent voters like the Contract with America. Who in the GOP led an effort like this in 2018 House races?


Equal Opportunity Racism

Imagine President Trump saying that “black males are the biggest threat to safety in neighborhoods.” The outrage from the left would be tremendous even though there is empirical research and statistical data that shows, “the No. 1 cause of preventable death for young black men is homicide, usually committed by another black man.” That being said, President Trump would be eviscerated by liberal Democrats and liberal media for saying it.


Not Just Evidence—Empirical Research and Data Matter, Too

Emmett Till a young black kid visiting his grandmother in Mississippi was accused by a white woman of whistling and flirting with her. Under the every female victim is telling the truth standard that the left is promoting, her husband and a few others disregarded concepts like due process, the rule of law and replaced it with mob rule. They kidnapped him, shot him in the head and threw his body in a nearby lake without corroboration or evidence. She later recanted.

The Need for Secure Borders

The most important aspect of immigration reform is keeping America safe. Illegal drugs, weapons, terrorists, and criminal gangs are pouring into the United States through our unsecured border.


If Kaepernick Wants to Help Kids, He Should Help Them Improve — Not Rabble-Rouse

If Kaepernick wants to help black and Hispanic kids in poor neighborhoods, he should help groups that find ways to keep kids in school, close the education gap, strengthen black families and prepare our children for well-paid jobs in fast-growing industries like health care, micro-electronics, and bio-tech.


Trump is Right: the Alt-Left Exists & the Media Ignores It

The very next day after Charlottesville, some were trying to cloak the liberal riot-starters who showed up itching for a confrontation by portraying them as a force for good. But the truth was very different. In reality, extreme leftist movements — be they Antifa or Black Lives Matter — are in the same category as neo-Nazis and white supremacists.


Another Tragedy, Another Round Of Politicization

First, there are the usual calls for more gun control with support for the erosion of Americans’ Second Amendment rights.


Sheriff David Clarke: Democrats ‘Have Screwed this Country Up with Failed, Liberal Urban Policies’

"Mass incarcerations, especially of black males, is a myth. Look, the Democrats did this. They have screwed this country up. They screwed it up with failed, liberal urban polices.”


Leaving the Most Vulnerable Defenseless

The people who are the most likely victims of crime are the very ones who benefit the most from being able to defend themselves. While gun control may stop some criminals from getting guns, it is the most law-abiding who obey the law and are disarmed.


Liberalism’s Impact on Abhorrent Behavior

As a governing ideology, liberalism has mainstreamed all behavior no matter how bizarre it might be. This enables crazy conduct that has no limitations – an era best described as “anything goes.” The reality is that conduct must have well defined and established borders.


Target Criminal Behavior, Not Guns

If the gun was the cause of violence then gun violence would be evenly distributed across demographics among the gun-owning population. However, that isn’t the reality.

Making America Safe Again

There are a handful of new approaches we should take to make America safe. We must identify repeat perpetrators by their long rap sheets. Send out teams of officers to arrest everyone out on outstanding felony warrants. Arrest probation and parole offenders for the slightest violation of their probation or parole. Follow-up with quality debriefings by investigators to determine the associates of perpetrators and the vehicles they own. Prosecute offenders and keep them locked up for the longest period allowed by law, keeping neighborhoods safe. Set high bail and stop liberal programs like community corrections and second chances for repeat offenders. Send felons who use a gun in commission of a crime to the Department of Justice for prosecution because federal guidelines for sentencing are longer and more certain. Stop accepting plea bargains in exchange for weak sentences. The reality is that these policy alternatives are effective crime control tools.

How many Americans in Chicago, D.C., and Milwaukee will be killed by violent offenders until leftist politicians realize their criminal justice policies have failed us all?

Unfortunately, it’s difficult to push back against the status quo. In order for my proposed strategy to work, police commanders must be able to empower and support frontline officers. Law enforcement officers have been emasculated and defanged in the assault by the cop-hating crowd that has risen since the incident in Ferguson, Missouri. America needs officers to once again engage in assertive policing that keeps crime and violence in check. Policing tactics such as traffic stops and field interviews based on reasonable suspicion prevent crime before it happens. They help turn up illegal gun possession, dangerous drugs and people wanted on serious felony warrants.

Unfortunately, cops have backed away from the risks associated with aggressive policing out of fear that they’ll be part of the next sensationalized national news story. They are reluctant to jeopardize their careers because of some snap-shot phone video of an incident taken out of context even when they are later exonerated.

If mayors and police commanders are unwilling to come up with a strategy such as the one I propose – improving the quality of life in crime-ridden neighborhoods through proven tactics – then they should prepare for another violent summer. One in which blacks and Hispanics are disproportionately victimized by crime and violence.
