Martin Luther King, Jr. - Strength of Character

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

We must not forget that civil rights is about making sure that all Americans enjoy their natural rights as individuals in a responsible and orderly society.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. understood the truth about how civil rights is best protected when we have a government that is as non-intrusive as possible.  He met with Vice President Richard Nixon in 1957 on Capitol Hill, in fact, to discuss ways to overcome Democrat opposition to the Republican civil rights agenda.

How quickly we have forgotten because of well-placed Democrat propaganda, who the true racists are.

Happy Martin Luther King Day.

Will Safe-Zones Expand?

Posted by Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

We already have safe-zones in colleges for poor little snowflakes who can't handle that there are people out there who dare to disagree with the programming they received from their professors.  Will the concept of safe-zones expand during the Trump presidency?  Will there be, for example, special sections on planes to protect easily-offended ears from the horrid rantings of pro-Constitution Americans?

Rosie Epitomizes Intolerance of Democrats

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

We've heard it all, haven't we?  Trump is not their president.  The Democrats, or at least a dozen of them, are boycotting the inauguration.  The President-Elect is, according to them, a sexist, a racist, and some kind of new Hitler.  They pulled the same crap against Bush, too.  George W. Bush, according to the leftist media, was extremely unpopular, even though that was not necessarily completely the case.

When the Bush presidency was ending, we heard leftist reports of how the horribly totalitarian Bush wanted to use martial law to keep his power, and that the Republicans were intolerant, and that is why they did not accept Obama.  Obama, after all, was the new greatest thing, and the GOP would need to learn how to like him, or else be labeled racists.

The Republicans, conservatives, and Tea Party has not shown the kind of intolerance we are seeing from the Democrats.  And, the left would not have tolerated such a thing from the GOP, anyway.  The accusations have long existed that the Republicans "want" to be intolerant, and that they secretly are, but we've never seen the GOP act in a manner even similar to how the Democrats have been acting.  Could you even imagine  what the liberal left's response would have been if during the 2008 and 2012 campaigns hordes of anti-Obama protesters violently followed the Democrat candidate around at his rallies as the leftists did to Trump?  Could you imagine if the GOP Congressmen had cried out that Obama was not their president, as the Democrats are doing today about Trump?  How about if right-of-center actors in Hollywood used their time at the podium when receiving an award hammering on Obama, calling him out for the things they felt was un-American?  What would have happened if the non-Democrats had pulled the crap the leftists are pulling now against Trump and the Republican Party?

The latest from Rosie O'Donnell, a person who is definitely not a fan of Donald Trump, goes even farther. . . and if anyone on the right side of the political spectrum had ever uttered what she's saying, we would have never heard the end of it.

O'Donnell, out of her head over her hate for the idea of a Donald Trump presidency, has gone so far as to suggest using martial law to delay Trump's inauguration.

"I fully supporting martial law - delaying the inauguration - until Trump is 'cleared' of all charges," O'Donnell wrote on Twitter. She posted this along with a retweet that read, "How about imposition of Martial Law until Trump is cleared of all allegations?"

Charges?  Allegations?  With what evidence?

For Democrats, the seriousness of the charge is enough to consider any non-Democrat guilty.  If their allies in government or the media also say the allegations are possible, then they convince themselves the allegations must be true. . .even if they know that from the beginning the false charges were mustered up as pure fantasy from the very beginning.

Hillary Clinton is the biggest criminal ever to run for President.  Her lies, Clinton Foundation crimes, and the missing emails that placed our national security at risk, are just the tip of the iceberg.  Yet, Rosie is worried about the made-up bull crap that Russia interfered with the election and somehow favored a Trump win?

The thing is, first of all the idea that Putin would prefer Trump in office is ridiculous.  The Russian President had no restraints with the Democrats in control.  In fact, at one point Obama told Medvedev to tell Putin that he had more flexibility coming.  Would that not be reason enough for Putin to desire a Hillary Clinton win? From a standpoint of him being able to invade countries as he desires, Putin's preference would obviously be a Democrat in the White House.

Getting back to Rosie, think about what she is saying regarding martial law.  She believes that the election of Trump was not to her liking, so she is demanding a Nazi-style condition of martial law be imposed to stop his inauguration.

Could you imagine if any Republican had ever uttered such a dangerous thing prior to Obama taking office?

At what point did we become a totalitarian, one-party system where control through martial law is the way to force one's ideology upon everyone?  Do we not have a free system?  Is not opposing the Democrat Party's way of doing things just as acceptable as the Democrats opposing the Republican Party's way of doing things in our American system of liberty?

Rosie posted another tweet that read, "For Gods sake - delay the inauguration - Keith how can we make this happen," along with a retweet of Keith Olbermann.

O'Donnell also tweeted, "Donald Trump [must] not be sworn in - declare a national emergency - delay delay and investigate - save the nation."

Save the nation from what?  Moving away from the Marxism the Democrats offer?

Trump has not replied to any of O'Donnell's tweets. He did tweet, "Intelligence insiders now claim the Trump dossier is a 'complete fraud!' @OANN."

That is what is amazing.  The Democrats came up with the propaganda, and they've gotten to the point where they actually believe the stuff.  They created a false narrative, and now reject the idea that it might not be true.  Then, in the case of Rosie O'Donnell, they demand that Nazi-style martial law be used to protect that false narrative.

Republican California Governor Thiel?

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

California was a comfortably Republican-leaning State during most of the previous century, with the last GOP presidential candidate winning California in 1988.  Since then, the Golden State has turned deep blue, culminating in 2016 with a 61.5% vote for Hillary Clinton, and a return to a Democrat supermajority in the State legislature.  California Republicans are at a major disadvantage in the State.  They feel like California is a lost cause.

Perhaps all the dark blue State of California needs is its own Donald Trump to run for governor.  Maybe they need someone proclaiming, "Make California Great Again."  With the looming possibilities of candidates even farther left than Jerry Brown, such as former San Francisco Mayor and Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and former Mayor of Los Angeles Antonio Villaraigosa throwing their hat in the ring, things look dire for California.  With a deeper Democrat bench, and an open primary that results in situations like in 2016 when the State had two Democrats on the general election ballot for Senator, the possibility of a Republican having any chance against the Democrats seems to be somewhere between nil and none.

In 2014 a Republican candidate by the name of Tim Donnelly held a solid second place approaching California's open primary where only the top two vote winners go on to the bonus round in November.  The California Republican Party, not happy about Donnelly's Tea Party affiliation, or strong conservative platform, spent its money, brought in money, and brought in Mitt Romney and George W. Bush to take on the right-leaning Donnelly by importing and supporting Neel Kashkari, a moderate who was involved in the creation of the controversial stimulus package at the tale-end of George W. Bush's presidency that was sold as being necessary to save the United States from economic catastrophe.

In short, Kashkari was the kind of liberal progressive Republican that the GOP has been erroneously convinced is necessary to win in elections like the gubernatorial fight in California.

Donnelly didn't have the funding to battle Kashkari's entrance, and placed third in the primary.  Kashkari, however, then lost to Brown in the general election the following November.

The Republican Party, save for the Kashkari debacle, doesn't bother spending money in California.  Trump didn't even bother visiting the State during his successful presidential run in 2016.  They all believe it is a lost State, so they don't even bother wasting the money in the State to try to get any of their candidates in office.  Even if by some strange chance a Republican was to win the governor's mansion again, what would it matter?  With a Democrat supermajority in the legislature, it's not like the GOP Governor would be able to get much done.

If Tim Donnelly had plenty of his own money, or if the GOP had been willing to pump funds into his campaign instead of sabotage him by bringing in Kashkari, California's hope for a less than hard left socialist governor may have been achieved.

Enter, Peter Thiel.

Like Donald Trump, Peter Thiel is wealthy enough to pay for his own campaign.  He's worth an estimated $2.7 billion, supported Donald Trump in the election, considers himself a Republican, and is contemplating a 2018 bid for California governor.

A co-founder of PayPal, and an early investor in Facebook, Thiel's potential candidacy for Governor of California would likely upset the balance in California, and place the establishment Republicans at a disadvantage.  In California the Republican Party is as liberal as the Democrat Party, when it comes to the leadership.  It's all about power and position, and the money pumped into campaigns by people like Charles Munger who buys losers for the delegates so that he can use his own delegate allies to shape and manipulate California's Republican Party leadership.

Thiel delivered a prime time speech at last summer’s Republican National Convention, so he is no stranger to the political scene.  He has contributed over $8.5 million to federal candidates and committees since 2000. 

The Trump win in 2016 has turned out to be a game-changer.  Trump has revealed that business-minded political outsiders can not only win, but win big.  Voters are tired of politics-as-usual by professional politicians.  One wonders if this means we will see a whole army of Republican (and possibly Democrat) businessmen entering various races for political office in 2018.

One wonders, also, how conservative Thiel might actually be for the California GOP.  After all, in 2015 the PayPal Billionaire contributed over $56,000 to leftist Democrat Gavin Newsom’s potential 2018 campaign.

The Future, Truthfully

By Douglas V. Gibbs

Let's jump into the time traveling Delorean and leap into the future. . .  

I received an email talking about the future, and what we should expect.  Here it is, with my additions in bold. . . (note that in some cases I am just having a little fun. . . some are quite serious  -  see if you can tell the difference).

The Future?

In 1998, Kodak had 170,000 employees and sold 85% of all photo paper worldwide. All medical X-rays used Kodak film. Camera's, both commercial and industrial, security camera's- imaging of all sorts. Within just a few years, their business model disappeared and they went bankrupt. What happened to Kodak will happen in a lot of industries in the next 10 years - and most people won't see it coming. Did you think in 1998 that 3 years later you would never take pictures on film again?

Yet digital cameras were invented in 1975. The first ones only had 10,000 pixels, but followed Moore's law. So as with all exponential technologies, it was a disappointment for a long time, before it became way superior and got mainstream in only a few short years. It will now happen with Artificial Intelligence, health, autonomous and electric cars, education, 3D printing, agriculture and jobs.

Welcome to the 4th Industrial Revolution.
Welcome to the Exponential Age.
Software will disrupt most traditional industries in the next 5-10 years.  Government will use the revolution for their own revolution, to control through a new technocracy.

Uber is just a software tool, they don't own any cars, and are now the biggest taxi company in the world.

Airbnb is now the biggest hotel company in the world, although they don't own any properties.

Artificial Intelligence: Computers become exponentially better in understanding the world. This year, a computer beat the best Go player in the world; 10 years earlier than expected.  While I am not expecting a "Terminator" scenario where artificial intelligence becomes self-aware and kills off much of humanity, collectivists will definitely try to use it to enact control over the citizenry. . . in the name of the common good, of course.

In the US, young lawyers already don't get jobs. Because of IBM Watson, you can get legal advice (so far for more or less basic stuff) within seconds, with 90% accuracy compared with 70% accuracy when done by humans. So if you study law, stop immediately. There will be 90% less lawyers in the future, only specialists will remain. THIS IS PROBABLY THE BEST EXTINCTION OF THEM ALL.  Jobs will become home jobs.  There will be no need, in most instances, to go to a workplace.  The rise in technology will also displace many Americans, increasing the number of people reliant upon government benefits.

Watson already helps nurses diagnosing cancer, 4 times more accurate than human nurses. Facebook now has a pattern recognition software that can recognize faces better than humans. In 2030, computers will become more intelligent than humans.  As we saw in the film "Minority Report," technology will get to the point where facial recognition will be used to advertise to you wherever you go, or send governmental propaganda to you wherever you go. . . depending.

Autonomous cars: In 2018 the first self-driving cars will appear for the public. Around 2020, the complete industry will start to be disrupted. You don't want to own a car anymore. You will call a car with your phone, it will show up at your location and drive you to your destination. You will not need to park it, you only pay for the driven distance and can be productive while driving. Our kids will never get a driver's license and will never own a car.  Eventually, politicians will consider transportation a constitutional right, and take over the "summon a car" service as they did with Amtrak.  The system will deteriorate, and eventually nobody will go anywhere, because the rails and "summon a car" programs will be bankrupt and falling apart without proper maintenance.

It will change the cities, because we will need 90-95% less cars for that. We can transform former parking spaces into parks. However, as socialist rule increases, rather than parks we will likely end up with slums and dirt fields where the old carcasses of cars sit to rust.  1.2 million people die each year in car accidents worldwide. We now have one accident every 60,000 mi (100,000 km), with autonomous driving that will drop to one accident in 6 million mi (10 million km). That will save a million lives each year.  This will increase world over growth and populations.  However, the technology will be abandoned, and people will find new ways to kill themselves because human nature dictates such.

Most car companies will probably become bankrupt. Traditional car companies try the evolutionary approach and just build a better car, while tech companies (Tesla, Apple, Google) will do the revolutionary approach and build a computer on wheels.  Virtual reality will likely change the industry again, and people will be able to travel anywhere they want without ever leaving their living room.

Many engineers from Volkswagen and Audi; are completely terrified of Tesla.

Insurance companies will have massive trouble because without accidents, the insurance will become 100x cheaper. Their car insurance business model will disappear.  Government will step in to try and become the replacement for all kinds of insurance, collapse the system, and leave everyone penniless.

Real estate will change. Because if you can work while you commute, people will move further away to live in a more beautiful neighborhood.  Not likely, because the welfare offices are in the cities.

Electric cars will become mainstream about 2020.  And then be proven to be completely worthless because battery technology is unable to surpass what hydrogen cars can do.  However, since cars will be gone because of the "summon a car" debacle, it won't matter.  While the leftists dream that the Cities will be less noisy because all new cars will run on electricity, the reality is they will begin a campaign against electrical cars once they realize how much damage to the environment the production of the batteries actually causes.  Electricity will never become incredibly cheap and clean to their liking.  Solar production will also be a failure, leaving a search for new sources of energy for 30 years, that will end in failure.

Last year, more solar energy was installed worldwide than fossil. Energy companies are desperately trying to limit access to the grid to prevent competition from home solar installations, but that can't last.
Technology will take care of that strategy.  Electricity, however, will still be cheapest when we increase our knowledge regarding nuclear energy.  Government will then decide the electricity is a constitutional right, and grab control of it to guarantee it to everyone.

With cheap electricity comes cheap and abundant water. Desalination of salt water now only needs 2kWh per cubic meter (@ 0.25 cents). We don't have scarce water in most places, we only have scarce drinking water. Imagine what will be possible if anyone can have as much clean water as he wants, for nearly no cost.  Except that the environmentalists will reject any opportunity to build desalination plants.  Billions will die from contaminated water, and thirst.

Health: The Tricorder X price will be announced this year. There are companies who will build a medical device (called the "Tricorder" from Star Trek) that works with your phone, which takes your retina scan, your blood sample and you breath into it.  Government will ensure the technology is only used for the political elite.  Such technology will not be available for the peasants.

It then analyses 54 bio-markers that will identify nearly any disease. It will be cheap, so in a few years everyone on this planet will have access to world class medical analysis, nearly for free.
Goodbye, medical establishment and their absurd medical fees for the ruling elite. . . not so much for the common folk.

3D printing: The price of the cheapest 3D printer came down from $18,000 to $400 within 10 years. In the same time, it became 100 times faster. All major shoe companies have already started 3D printing shoes.

Some spare airplane parts are already 3D printed in remote airports. The space station now has a printer that eliminates the need for the large amount of spare parts they used to have in the past.

At the end of this year, new smart phones will have 3D scanning possibilities. You can then 3D scan your feet and print your perfect shoe at home. Amazing things are coming fast.

Only the systems for paying for these capabilities remain to be defined.

In China, they already 3D printed and built a complete 6-story office building. By 2027, 10% of everything that's being produced will be 3D printed.

Government, worried about the possibility of individuals using the 3D printers for greedy capitalistic profit make them illegal. . . except for use by political officials who use them to print idols of themselves for the people to worship.

Business opportunities: If you think of a niche you want to go in, ask yourself: "in the future, do you think we will have that?" and if the answer is yes, how can you make that happen sooner?

If it doesn't work with your phone, forget the idea.

And any idea designed for success in the 20th century is doomed to failure in the 21st century.

And here's the clincher---Work: 70-80% of jobs will disappear in the next 20 years. There will not be a lot of new jobs, but don't worry, mama government will give you a mediocre life in the projects.  Equality is the aim. . . equality in misery, anyway.

Agriculture: There will be a $100 agricultural robot in the future. Farmers in 3rd world countries can then become managers of their field instead of working all day on their fields.  Then government will pay them not to plant crops.

Aeroponics will need much less water. The first Petri dish produced veal, is now available and will be cheaper than cow produced veal in 2018. Right now, 30% of all agricultural surfaces is used for cows. Imagine if we don't need that space anymore.  Then government will pay them not to supply as well, and then figure out how they can exert control through synthetic or genetically engineered foods that go way beyond GMOs.

There are several startups who will bring insect protein to the market shortly. It contains more protein than meat. It will be labeled as "alternative protein source" (because most people still reject the idea of eating insects).  Are you looking forward to your grasshopper bread, ant spread, and bug parts salad?

There is an app called "moodies" which can already tell in which mood you're in. By 2020 there will be apps that can tell by your facial expressions, if you are lying. Imagine a political debate where it's being displayed when they're telling the truth and when they're not. Those whose moods do not show joy over government control will be arrested.

Bitcoin may even become the default reserve currency. Of the world.  But not likely.  Currency will be eliminated, and government will give you credits that expires if not used quickly in order to make it impossible to accumulate wealth.  It will all be managed digitally.

Longevity: Right now, the average life span increases by 3 months per year. Four years ago, the life span used to be 79 years, now it's 80 years. The increase itself is increasing and by 2036, there will be more that one year increase per year. So we all might live for a long long time, probably way more than 100.
But over population will create severe food problems.  Therefore, a Logan's Run scenario may not be simply science fiction.

Education: The cheapest smart phones are already at $10 in Africa and Asia. By 2020, 70% of all humans will own a smart phone. That means, everyone has the same access to instant world class education.  But, instead, these devices will be used as they are now. . . to argue with people we don't know on social media sites, and to watch cat videos.

The United States of America will most likely fall to a second world status country due to liberal voting policies.  A Russian political scientist suggested the turmoil would then cause the United States to break up into six new countries.

China will become the primary power of the world, and then collapse when it tries to force communism back into the growing economic system.

Every child can use Khan academy for everything a child learns at school in First World countries. We have already released our software in Indonesia and will release it in Arabic, Suaheli and Chinese this Summer, because I see an enormous potential.  That way, they can more easily be taught what to think, and abandon being infidels against Islam.

We will give the English app for free, so that children in Africa can become fluent in English within half a year.  However, that will be rejected and be considered cause for more jihad.

Those of you under 65 today will experience most of these, which means likely you will be wearing a hijab or a turban. . .

Or, if we stay the course, we may possibly miss much of this, and indeed "Make America Great Again."

Democrats Refuse to Attend Inauguration

By Douglas V. Gibbs

I don't recall any Republicans refusing to attend either of Barack Obama's inaugurations for political reasons.  Perhaps there were those who considered it, but it never made the news.  You know as well as I do that if the GOP did boycott Obama's inauguration, the news media would have been going crazy about it. . . even if it was only one Republican who dared to do such a thing.  We would have heard how intolerant the right-wingers are, or how un-American they were.

In 2016, Donald J. Trump won the election, and the Democrats are beside themselves in anger.  So much so that the hypocrites who would never have stood for Republicans boycotting Obama's inauguration have decided that a number of them will boycott Trump's inauguration.  According to reports, about a dozen Democrat Congress Critters have announced their intention to skip Donald Trump’s inauguration as a protest against his plans for the country. While the boycotters make up only a small fraction of the Congress Critters, their decision to protest represents a break with tradition that they say is warranted by Trump’s agenda, which they see as extreme.

While Republicans were not thrilled with Obama's victories in 2008 and 2012, and considered his policies to not only be extreme, but against the Constitution, at no point did they throw temper-tantrums or refuse to follow tradition.  Sure, there are members of Congress that miss inaugurations for a variety of reasons, usually personal reasons, but refusal because they don't like the new guy in the White House is normally not one of those reasons.

What is fascinating is that the hysteria comes from a propaganda campaign that has no evidence behind it, and actually defies logic.  We are told Trump is a racist, though he was never considered such until he ran against Democrats.  He actually has a history of working with civil rights leaders.  The claim by Democrats that he's a racist was born from the fact that they see anyone who disagrees with their stance on illegal immigration as prejudice against immigrants, and anyone who dares to link terrorism with Islam as racist against Muslims.  In both cases the accusation of racism is inaccurate, since both are national security matters since in both cases the incoming populations have mixed in their ranks persons who seek to cause violence against the United States, be they drug cartel members or Islamic terrorists.

The sexist charge is fascinating since, based on his involvement in beauty pageants, and the reality of his position of wealth, Trump has been surrounded by beautiful women his whole life, yet any accusations of sexism didn't appear until he dared to run against Hillary Clinton.

In other words, the accusations of racism, sexism, and pretty much anything else the liberal left has thrown at him, are without a doubt patently false.  It has been a propaganda campaign of misinformation and misdirection.  Either the Democrats throwing a hysteria fit believe their own bullcrap, or they are fantastic actors.

The reality is, if Republicans had made the kind of statements Democrats are now making about Trump back in 2008 or 2012 regarding Obama, the media would have been all over it, and the GOP would have been demonized for not giving the incoming President the benefit of the doubt.

In short, the boycott by a number of Democrats of the Trump inauguration less than a week from now is unacceptable. . . mainly because they would not have tolerated the same by their opponents if the shoe was on the other foot.

Inevitable Clash on Inauguration Day

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

We are finally removing the liberty-sucking tick from the White House.  However, we have to make sure we get it all, otherwise it'll become a festering sore.

Anti-Trump protesters head to Washington...

The liberal left is itching for a confrontation, not realizing it only confirms to Trump supporters why they voted for the billionaire.

Plan to blockade checkpoints, 'party' outside Pence home... 

What amazes me is their anger is rooted in propaganda by the Democrat Party and media/education minions who have made wild accusations about Donald Trump and Republicans without a shred of evidence, and in reality in complete opposition to the truth.

Commanding general of DC National Guard ordered removed from post...

The Obama administration is compliant.

Meet biker hosting biggest pro-Trump demo at inauguration... 

Ever notice there were not anti-Trump protests at "Bikers for Trump" rallies?

Motorcycle group will stand up to agitators... 

If there is a clash, the media will cherry-pick the images and spin it to make it look like the bikers started it, and were violent against the poor, peaceful leftist protesters.

Latinos to toast tequila to new president... 

My wife was born in Mexico, immigrated here legally, and naturalized in 2007 ... and she was a Trump supporter before I was.

Losing Roy Innis

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

While I never had the opportunity to personally meet Roy Innis, I felt like I knew him well.  Due to my growing role as Director of Civics and Constitution Studies with the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE), I have been working with Niger Innis, Roy's son, quite a bit.

Roy Innis was seen as an anomaly in the Civil Rights Movement.  Rather than take a Marxist position, or be a violent activist striking out against "the man," he preached a more conservative message.  Individualism and taking responsibility while accepting consequences was his missive, a message that was unexpected by his civil rights contemporaries.  Roy Innis has repeatedly called for returning to the nuclear family by bringing dad home and eliminating dependency upon welfare programs, and stopping the destructive practice of abortion.  He also had taken a conservative stance on energy, climate change, and the constitutional role of government.

I have a copy of his book, "Energy Keepers Energy Killers: The New Civil Rights Battle," of which his son Niger signed for me in lieu of his father.  I had planned to have Roy on my Constitution Radio program on KMET to discuss the arguments he presented in the book in the near future.

On January 8, however, we lost Roy Innis, Sr. to complications from Parkinson's disease.

Mr. Innis was the national chairman of the Congress of Racial Equality, and had been since 1968.  His son, Niger, has been the national spokesman for the civil rights organization during the latter part of his dad's incumbency.

Roy Innis' rise to national recognition began in Harlem during the heat of the Civil Rights Movement of the 50s and 60s.  He had joined CORE, which was founded in 1942 by white and black students in Chicago. 

Mr. Innis described himself as “a serious economic and political and cultural black nationalist,” and led CORE into a new direction by applying a conservative worldview to his advocacy work.

As CORE followed Innis in the new direction, black activists like Al Sharpton became very critical of the organization.  Innis fought right back, describing Sharpton as being “politicized in left-wing nonsense” and once told Newsday that he was “sick” of them “defining the African-American community.” In 1988 on the “The Morton Downey Jr. Show” Mr. Innis and Sharpton got into a pushing match after the latter called Innis a “bigot.”

Mr. Innis' wake-up call to the need for black neighborhoods to be turned around with a more sensible conservative approach, according to Innis himself, could be traced back to the shooting deaths of two of his sons — Roy Innis Jr., who died at 13 while playing outside in 1968, and Alexander Innis, who died at 26 in 1982.

“After the murders of my sons I did not want other parents to go through what I went through,” Mr. Innis told Newsday in 1993. “My sons were not killed by the KKK or David Duke. They were murdered by young, black thugs. I use the murder of my sons by black hoodlums to shift the problems from excuses like the KKK to the dope pushers on the streets.”

He opposed busing, telling the New York Times in an interview that “you cannot define desegregation as the idea that black kids can’t learn outside the presence of white kids.” He instead advocated greater community control of school district finances and leadership, and blamed strong central governance for the problems in the cities and public education.

Gun control, he told blacks, “was not meant to protect your safety; it was meant to deprive you of your freedom.”  The first gun control laws in the United States emerged when Democrats passed them in the hopes of leaving blacks defenseless against the KKK, and other anti-black groups shortly after the War Between the States.  Innis was an active board member of the National Rifle Association.

Innis also stood against affirmative action laws, arguing that they worked against the advances of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which included provisions outlawing from a federal standpoint discrimination in the workplace and in employment.

CORE, under the leadership of Roy Innis, has focused on education and job training.  The brand of conservatism he has brought to CORE is traditional, and in line with the style of governance originally intended during the founding of the United States, in terms of localism, and limited federal authorities.  He believed that kind of traditionalism to be the "most decent and rational expression of the American personality,” Mr. Innis once told the New York Times. “I believe that the success of America has been the application of pragmatism in society, and that view is particularly unfashionable in the civil rights movement.”

Which is why he has supported the effort to bring me, Douglas V. Gibbs, on board to coordinate educating minorities on the basic principles of American civics, and the United States Constitution.  The launch of the program has only been waiting for final approval by the executive board in New York City, who have been informed of our efforts in California - efforts of which Roy Innis was very excited about, and approving of.

We will miss Roy Innis.  He was a voice of sanity during a time of great turmoil, and at CORE it is our aim to continue his legacy of striving for greater racial equality in America through education, and turning around our Hispanic and black neighborhoods from within by teaching moral principles and the philosophies of governance consistent with those that have made this country prosper over the last two centuries.

Douglas V. Gibbs Explains the Electoral College and Emoluments Clause

Douglas V. Gibbs speaking tonight in Banning, California

The Coyote Principle

Posted by Douglas V. Gibbs

Yet another great email:

California - One person's opinion - Probably has some merit

*  The Governor of California is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks the Governor's dog, then bites the Governor.

*  The Governor starts to intervene, but reflects upon the movie "Bambi" and then realizes he should stop because the coyote is only doing what is natural.

*  He calls animal control. Animal Control captures the coyote and bills the state $200 testing it for diseases and $500 for relocating it.

*  He calls a veterinarian. The vet collects the dead dog and bills the State $200 testing it for diseases.

*  The Governor goes to hospital and spends $3,500 getting checked for diseases from the coyote and on getting his bite wound bandaged.

*  The running trail gets shut down for 6 months while Fish & Game conducts a $100,000 survey to make sure the area is now free of dangerous animals.

*  The Governor spends $50,000 in state funds implementing a "coyote awareness program" for residents of the area.

*  The State Legislature spends $2 million to study how to better treat rabies and how to permanently eradicate the disease throughout the world.

*  The Governor's security agent is fired for not stopping the attack. The state spends $150,000 to hire and train a new agent with additional special training re the nature of coyotes.

*  PETA protests the coyote's relocation and files a $5 million suit against the state.


*  The Governor of Texas is jogging with his dog along a nature trail. A coyote jumps out and attacks his dog.

*  The Governor shoots the coyote with his state-issued pistol and keeps jogging. The Governor has spent $.50 on a .45 ACP hollow point cartridge.

*  The buzzards eat the dead coyote.

And that, my friends, is why California is broke and Texas is not

Obama in Denial

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Did you hear the going away speech by Barack Obama?  He actually thinks his presidency was worth a damn.  He spent the entire speech bragging about how wonderful he is, and how the world is a much better place.  Reality paints a completely different image.

The economy is a mess.  The world's bad characters are spreading tyranny at will.  The labor participation rate is horrid, with 95 million Americans out of the labor force.  Recovery?  We never recovered.  Obama had his own shovel ready job of digging a deeper hole for America.

Over 11 million more Americans are on food stamps, and more than 43 million Americans now live in poverty. One of every six men between 18 and 34 are either in prison or out of work.  But, that is somehow a sign of success to Obama.

The national debt grew more under Obama than all previous Presidents, combined.  It's almost $20 trillion. 

Regulations have created a hostile business environment in this country (making companies leave our shores), with the cost of the regulations added totally to $873 billion. That includes a shocking $344 billion cost in Environmental Protection Agency regulations alone. The creation of new regulations under President Obama clocks in at just under 3,000.

Manufacturing is down, with 300,000 manufacturing jobs gone during the Obama regime.  

Then, there's ObamaCare, the nightmarish calamity that has failed to do as Obama claimed, and is collapsing under its own weight.  People didn't get to keep their doctor.  And yes, premiums went up, not down.  Never mind the fact that there is also absolutely no constitutional authority for the federal government to intrude upon the health care industry.

Also, Islamic terrorism is on the rise, and Obama says it's gotten better.

Trump says he will stop ISIS, stop the Muslim invasion into the United States, reduce the flood of illegal aliens (by building a barrier between the U.S. and Mexico. . . as is already prescribed by law, encourage job creation by making America a desirable place to do business, lower taxes (also encouraging economic growth), fix our fouled up trade deals, and promote domestic energy programs.

Trump has a plan, rather than acting as an oxygen thief like Obama, whose greatest accomplishment is long speeches that woo most Democrats, but in reality steals breathable air from the rest of us.
