Complete Change of "Bearing & Heading" ...


A person commented on an earlier post with a link to a post on another blog that showed a complete change in "Bearing and Heading" on the bloggers part...



https://lynnrmitchell.wordpress.com/2016/02/03/delegates-endorsements-suggest-support-for-convention-lawsuit/


As I read it I was amazed by the change of direction by the writer who once was a strong supporter of the "Grass roots" and would strive to keep the "Establishment" candidates and electeds in check. Now it appears this blogger supports the "Incumbent Protection Act" where incumbents select the best tactic to keep themselves in office instead of standing up to the voters and answer for their actions while in office..

It is easy to see that the citizens are fed up with the some of the current "establishment" electeds and the direction they have taken the country with their actions and lack of action... 

This is why two "outsiders" in the Republican primary are doing so well and should be allowed to ask the questions and raise the issues that the citizens have been discussing for years...

Trump shuts 'em down and wakes some candidates up...


People ask why do I like Trump. Not really sure I want him as President but I very much want him in the race to "Stir the Pot" as he has done since getting in the race. I believe Cruz will make a good President for what I have seen him done already and his belief that we need to take our government back. He believes in the constitution and will fight for it...


The "Establishment" has a problem with both of these guys and that is why so many people like them. Government has become a BIG business and for many a very profitable career for what should be a part time job with limited duration.



Trump is running it like he should and with that he has sent a message to the GOP establishment and the mainstream media. By boycotting the next debate he is telling both that we no longer believe or will go along with the "Spin" that has been sold for decades. Many times I have heard local GOP people and especially bloggers cry about how unfair the MSM has been. Interestingly many of these same bloggers were big on claiming that they were not working for the candidates but for the "Republican Party" and there to keep the candidates and "Electeds" in check. Now I see one of these bloggers actually has worked as the campaign manager for one elected that this same blogger went after in the past. Is it loyalty or the desire of "Power" & attention?



I

I have also noticed that many of the local "Electeds" have become much more involved in their local campaigns and not just depending on the local committees actually doing as they claim or promise. I recall years back were the local GOP party volunteers would report back "yeah, we have been walking communities and making calls" as promised but never did see this happening. Many a days\nights while picking up candidate signs at headquarters to place in the 6th district I never did see any phone banking going on as reported. This does not seem to still be happening(?) now and that is good. I remember thinking it was a good sign when I would come in and fine Anne T. from the Staunton committee working the phones hard and it paid off for the candidates she supported. Candidates who lost by very slim numbers or ones that still won but not the spread they had hoped for are now taking control for themselves...

Many do not like Trump and others taking this type of control from the "Establishment" control but it's time to get back on track and on the correct heading...

Establishment vs. "Grass Roots"...



While waiting for a program to start tonight I had a few minutes to check some of the older political blogs in the area to see where they stand before the voting starts this Friday. Interesting to see how some have changed and how many have remained the same. Some try oh so hard to be a "NEWS" source for the Valley but it is still apparent if you preach to your own people, and say what they want, you will have a following...

Fortunately the people have learned to see things for what they are and are no longer marching in line or following blindly as they have. They seek out the truth and explore other avenues of information to get the real facts. 

It will truly be interesting this time around...

Will it be a repeat performance?...


Came along this toon a few years back after a thrashing of the Democrat party by the GOP and hopes are I will be posting it again in November. After seven years of Obama and his administration, including Hillary as Secretary of State, The people are fed up with the Dems and their actions. 


I myself  think we are looking at another GOP victory like the one back when the people were fed up with Jimmy Carter and his weakness. Reagan inspired the people to "Make America Great" once again and with that we had a long run of growth in the economy as well as strength in America leadership...


Obama with the backing and support of the Democrat party, has taken this country in a direction that people could only imagine but now have witnessed it. Failed economy and incredible rise in national debt was only part of the history. We also are more divided than before he took office because of his actions and policies. And not just politically. We are divided by race, sex, religion, and a relentless 7 years of income inequality division whenever needed by the democrats. Instead of leading the country Obama chose to divide and punish whenever possible.

But it's not a clear Republican vs. Democrat run this time around as it should be. Instead we have increased infighting within the Republican party both on national and local levels. It is obvious that we have friction between the "establishment" GOP and the candidates who are also fed up watching the country torn apart by Obama's actions. That and the lack of action by many in the House & Senate to stop and correct Obama's efforts. 

The voters gave the House & Senate majorities to the GOP only to see weak or non-existent action to rein in Obama. Speaker of the House Boehner was weak and it was obvious that he left the Conservative faction of the GOP on the sideline to watch our America lost. Politics is a game of plays & tactics and this was proven when Boehner punished those who voted against him once he won the Speaker position again. The way I saw it if my representative wanted to keep his chairmanship he knew he had to vote for the speaker again. And he did to my disappointment...

This friction is also apparent at the local level were committees and their members jockey for position of power and recognition. I have been away from the local committees for awhile but it seems the same players are active in their efforts to control the committee members and voters. Some are no longer "members" of local or State committees but are still active in the background working for their own power and recognition. Unfortunately we have all seen the effects and results of people who destroyed parties because of power trips & ego's instead of supporting conservative and constitutional efforts. This BS is how we lose good and valuable conservative voters at a time when we need them most. We need strong leadership on all levels...

Remember after the last seven years "It's the Republicans race to lose"...

While at the Democrat debate last night...

Last night I was asked by a co-worker to stop by a local watering hole that was showing the Democrat Presidential debate and thought it would be a good opportunity to support a friend. We are on different sides of the fence and he is a strong Bernie Sanders supporter and at first my intentions were to stop by, say hello and share a beverage and then head for the door. But with that I have always thought it a good idea to sit with the opposition to see what they are up to. Sanders had the support of the crowd and it was interesting to watch them all nod in unison and with their stare stuck to the screen... 

 But what I really found interesting was how Bernie could and did beat up on Hillary as he did. They never really did get to beat up the Republicans for Bernie had a agenda and stuck to it. 

Bernie also did what the mainstream media should have been doing all along in calling Hillary out. When I brought the Benghazi issue up the Bernie supporters acknowledged it but would rather move on to the extreme policies that Bernie wants instead. The Hillary supporters were quick to dismiss Benghazi and attack the person that brings such nonsense up. 

 But once I got home I looked up this video where Hillary was confronted about Benghazi and her lies and I can only imagine how many dem supporters actually saw this video or even acknowledge it... 

 It truly shows Hillary for what she is

No longer acceptable...


Back during the last debacle in Richmond I got very disappointing comments and reactions from my local State Senators when they said "We don't have enough votes to do anything"...

Tears for fears?...


Several news sites and broadcasts have focused on how Obama cried during his announcement of new gun restrictions yesterday. He started "Crying" when he thinks about the small children killed during the Sandy Hook shooting. Maybe he should focus on the murder capital his hometown Chicago has become and the small children killed there for the past 7 years. The Mainstream media continues to give him a pass and fail to ask the obvious questions...

By the time you hear about it...


Up at 5:30 am to get ready for work and already they were talking about the financial mess in China and how their stock market took a major fall. By the time I got to work I had numerous notification messages on my phone speculating as to how  our market and Wall Street would respond...

The phone started singing once the market opened and by the time I got done reading several notifications the market was down 400+ points. By the time I got to the computer to check several of the stocks I own they also took the nosedive of the New Year...

Google search "Market Crash" and numerous articles already predicting a major "Correction" and likely "Crash" sometime during 2016. There were several articles saying that there will not be a "Crash" this year and why but even they had to admit that our markets and economy has been propped up by no interest Federal Gov for years. Look long enough and you will even find the guys who will even admit that the big shots on Wall Street and other top financials guys will get theirs before the next crash. 

Consider the speed and amount of transactions performed by the computers owned and operated by the top financial institutions today and how your your 401k will be gone before you even hear about it...

"The BIG Short" and the BIG issue...


I met Stephen Moore at a Conservative convention near Washington DC a few years back and heard him speak about what would happen if Senator Obama was to be elected and he pretty much was right on. Bought his book "The end of prosperity" and if we knew then what we know now...

He has a good piece here at Investors Business Daily about the move "The Big Short" which is out now and makes several good points.

One lesson of the real estate crash is that markets don't always work perfectly, far from it — but they work better than any alternative. It's critically important that investors, bankers, taxpayers and politicians learn why things went haywire so they don't happen again.


The new hit movie "The Big Short," based on Michael Lewis' bestselling book, is an entertaining and suspenseful reenactment of all the breakdowns in the banking and housing industries that caused the financial world to go collectively mad and the many unsavory characters.

It brings back bad memories of how symbiotic relationships among auditors, credit rating agencies, banks and insurance companies created dastardly conflicts of interest.

Very much true we need to learn from our mistakes and unfortunately we do not have a leader in the White house and in fact one who is dividing more than anything.

I've never understood why auditors and credit rating agencies work for the financial institutions, not the investors. It's like the old joke about the CEO who asks his accountant: "What is two plus two?" The accountant looks around and whispers, "What do you want it to be?"
McDonald's workers were getting half million-dollar mortgages. One Miami stripper owned five houses and had five mortgages. The credit agencies were giving triple-A bond ratings to junk mortgage-backed securities without even examining the unpayable low down payment "NINJA" (no income, no job) loans in the portfolios. These ratings were handed out right up to the very eve of the crash.







~2016~ will bring on many things...


The year ~2016~ will be an interesting one in many ways and largely will be what this guy attempts to do in the last year of his tenure and how the people and GOP reacts. We pretty much expect and understand that the GOP leadership will be WEAK in their reaction to any of the suspected "Executive orders" that Obama will attempt to pull but it is the reaction of the people that will count...





While doing a little hard drive maintenance I cam along some of those familiar photo "memes" that we have all seen while on Facebook and other sites and here are just a few. This is a perfect one that shows how our President really feels about our military in contrast to what he says while playing basketball and golf on the military bases he visits...




Obama's Liberal friends here in the Shenandoah Valley are quick to defend his plans to take in and care for his "Special interest" groups but yet they will not respond to simple questions such as this above. They rather attack anybody who points out these important issues...






Question the President's efforts to bring large numbers of "Refugees" from known terrorist countries and communities without any effective screening or restrictions and you are called a racist. The Liberal mainstream media has once again provided both support and coverage to the President on his actions but people know better. This is one reason why Trump and Cruz have been popular candidates for they say and do what the real American people believe...



Both the President and his enviro-maniac Democrat congress was able to kill the proposed Keystone pipeline but it did take seven years to do that. Little surprise that by killing this pipeline it continues a incredible amount of income into the pockets of a historical supporter of Obama and the Democrats....




The above photo says it all...


So does this one...


Fortunately the recent polling numbers show that more and more people are starting to show this debacle for what it really is. For decades now super computer models have been showing pending disasters, both COLD and HOT, but no actual results proving these models. COLD to HOT to CHANGE to DISRUPTION to ? next...


The efforts of a liberal education force has started to pay off after decades of teaching our students to "Feel" instead of "Think". 
"Trophies for all" and "whatever answer you feel is right" has produced a generation who has never been taught how to work or even understand what is required to "Earn" something for failure is no longer a acceptable part of growing up...



And it's not just the wing-nuts in the nations capital. Here in Virginia we have a administration that is following in Obama's footsteps by ignoring the State legislature to push their Liberal agenda. They claim to be protecting the Virginia citizens but all they are doing is taking away the rights and ability for law abiding citizens to protect themselves and family. CRIMINALS do not pay attention to laws like this...


Again. Above says it all...


How do you explain "Shadows in the rain"?...



And this guy has a substantial following and supporters. (See above Education comments and photos)...



Keep the faith Brothers & Sisters...
