The Politics of Obstruction, Destruction, Intimidation

Just when I think our politicians can’t stoop any lower, I am proven wrong. What happened this week with Montana Senator Jon Tester spewing unfounded, spurious and slanderous gossip about Admiral/Doctor Ron Jackson with the intent of disrupting and/or ending his bid to be the head of the V.A. was as low as it gets. What is it with these people having so much hatred for our President, elected by us, the people, that they obstruct every nominee for every single position in our government? It seems that they don’t WANT the best people, the first pick, to be in any job. It seems they want to wait to approve anyone until we get to the third or fourth pick, because if we actually approve those first and best people selected by the President, they see it as a win for the President. They have it all wrong, of course. It would be a win for all of us, and the reason we put President Trump there was to get us back in the win column. Jon Tester was willing to destroy the reputation of a really good man in Admiral Jackson, for no reason other than the politics of obstruction and destruction. He had no thought for the years of unselfish and impeccable service by Admiral Jackson, to our country, our government and people of all political persuasions. He had reckless disregard for this man’s career, and family, and for all of our heroic Veterans that need a man of his qualifications and ethics to fix the problems of the V.A right now. Where was Tester when the V.A was going to hell in a handbasket and people were dying from not being able to get appointments? I have to wonder if Tester feels happy and vindicated now that his ploy got the results he wanted. I doubt that our brave American Veterans are happy. I know my own relatives who are Veterans are spitting angry. They get the fallout, and are just pawns in this political game of chess with the end goal of being to obstruct, intimidate and destroy any Trump nominee for any position in our government.
The question for some was if Admiral Ronny Jackson was qualified to run an agency the size of the V.A, with 370,000 employees and many hospitals. The criticism was that his job as Whitehouse physician, did not give him the administrative qualifications to handle an agency of this size. How about being an Admiral in the Navy and serving in MASH units in Iraq and seeing and treating first hand those injured in war? Admiral Jackson has numerous awards and medals, and degrees and qualifications to have served as head of the V.A. Jon Tester, who has one degree, a bachelors in music, played nasty and dirty politics to deprive the Veterans of a much needed leader who understood better than anyone exactly what our Veterans need and deserve. Great job Tester. You are a stain on the U.S Senate.
The intimidation goes so far and so wide that when Kanye West, as a black American; as a man who may not be your favorite artist, but who has undeniable talent and is wildly popular, suddenly becomes a target of hate speak and vitriol of people on the left because he agrees with Candace Owens and likes President Trump. John Goodman of “Roseanne” fame, blasted Kanye on his position, as did other Hollywood types like John Legend. We can’t just let people have different views, we have to intimidate them and attempt to destroy them. Is this what politics has become? 
The left, who claim to be the politics of inclusion, who defends the illegal aliens pouring across our borders, who complain about the United States vetting those who come into our country, who are the supposed champions of the blacks, and the LGBGT community and the homeless, and the working families, will DESTROY anyone who dares to disagree with them. How very hypocritical.
They paint those who don’t agree with them as racists, homophobes, misogynists, and more. They assign blame and names to intimidate people into blindly following their narratives so as not to be embarrassed and slandered. This is all so very wrong. As one of three conservative hosts on Life Liberty and the Pursuit of Pleasure, I thought that I would be at odds with the seven liberal hosts on the show. What I learned is something our politicians need to learn. I learned that although we may differ on some issues, we all do it respectfully and we try to seek common ground. I found that we all have far more in common than not as members of the human race just trying to live our lives. While we may not agree on all subjects, there is not obstruction, destruction or intimidation in our ranks. No personal attacks, no name calling, no raised voices. We focus on how we can come together, and although we may never agree on some issues, we agree on the dignity of each person expressing their views.
Those politicians who commit the type of political smears like Jon Tester did, cannot be re-elected. We as Americans, can show our rejection of this type of political attacks with our vote, and we can try to get back to a Senate and Congress that may not always agree, but is willing to work together for the greater good of America.

It’s Time to Take the Attack to The Marxists

Biden set up America for disaster. I can’t even suppose how many years of coming terrorist attacks, internal conflicts, and a return to tribalism for self-defense we’ll face. Make no mistake, we’re in for it and if we continue to trust the Democrat (Marxists) Party to do what’s right, instead of destroying them completely, then we must readjust the parameters of our thinking and prepare for the worst…

Who Is Really At the Helm in the White House?

If we choose to ignore the evidence, or to merely grumble about his performance, then Biden and his cohorts will proceed unhindered with their agenda. We need to take a close look at his exploits and see what patterns are formed. Then, let’s take it a step further and ask who might be coaching Joe. Knowing the enemy is the first step toward defeating that enemy…

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

America’s Uniqueness Starts and Ends with the US Constitution

We the People, after creating this Frankenstein monster of a government and setting it loose on an unsuspecting world, now cower in fear of our creation, unwilling to stand and defend even our own selves against it. Why did the framers of this union create this Constitution the way they did? What was the purpose that We the People had in mind when we ordained and established it?

Since August, Australians cannot go out of their homes for longer than an hour to socialize or shop. We are witnessing the extreme government tyranny that can take over a once-free society and the speed with which it can happen. It’s a snapshot of what could be coming to the United States of America and other freedom-loving countries, and we’d better start paying attention…

If you’re wondering what affiliations are connected with the CDC through partnerships of Corporations, Foundations & Organizations, look no further, you will see a pattern emerge, and why the push for vaccinations is everywhere we go, there are so many groups doing business with the CDC.

Bush invoked January 6th in his comments on the hallowed ground of Shanksville during the 9/11 ceremonies. In the flight path of the downed airliner, Bush made the following statement: ‘’Violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” “are children of the same foul spirit.” What Bush said is simply the talking points of the establishment…

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

Covid-19, Social Standing, and the New World Order

A government that can force people to take medical treatments against their wishes can do whatever it wants, and the fact that Joe Biden’s order is unconstitutional will not stop tens of millions of Americans from being forced to get vaccinated against their will, in order to continue supporting their families. By the time the Supreme Court shoots this order down (assuming they do), the damage will already be done…
