Multiple Blue Cities Suffer Power Outages

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Multiple cities have been hit with power outages.  One wonders what the cause may be.  The outages occurred around the same time, leaving many to speculate that foul-play may be playing a part in the multi-city blackouts.  Officials consider the power outages a coincidence, but have yet to offer an explanation for them.

In San Francisco, a fire at a substation is being blamed.  The causes in Seattle, Los Angeles, and New York have yet to be determined.  New York was the first of the string of power outages.

The loss of electricity for a matter of hours was an inconvenience.  A disruptive moment in an otherwise busy day.  But, what if those outages were to last for days.  Weeks.  Months.

We have 21st Century technology sitting on 19th Century electricity grid technology.  The ease in which our electrical grids can be taken down is frightening.  The Mexican Drug Cartels have taken down complete regions in Mexico, so what would stop them, or Islamic terrorists, from doing the same in the United States?

While I am not suggesting the recent outages were some kind of terrorist attack, or dry run for one, we must ask, "Are we sure that it wasn't?"

Our entire lives depend upon the electricity we take for granted.  Our devices, our communication, and our jobs all depend on the wonder of technology, and the electricity that runs it.  A loss of electricity for an extended period of time would be devastating, and likely cause more trouble than a direct attack on our shores by military vessels, because it wouldn't take long before the squabbles among ourselves, and then the desperation to feed ourselves as refrigerated foods go sour, turns our civilized social order into chaos and violence, and ultimately, internal collapse.

I wonder how many people are truly prepared for such an event.  Here in California, we live in earthquake country, and it should be something everyone is prepared for. . . but sadly, few are.

Of course, after watching the Oroville Dam nearly flood a town because the Democrats in this State pumped money into benefits for illegal aliens, a bullet train, and paying for the high wages and pensions of government employees as demanded for by the public unions, rather than into repairs for the most critical parts of our infrastructure, one wonders if the power outages are just another symptom, and consequence, of failed liberal left Democrat Party policies in the big cities affected by the blackouts.

"Besides," one liberal left-winger told me recently, "why would California pump money into a dam to protect against spillage when we know that California is in a 50-year drought?  Scientific consensus says so."

Then how, pray tell, do they explain the rain we got here in California over the few months covering late fall, and through winter?

Congress of Racial Equality Expansion, and Constitution Classes

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The countdown to launch is in motion.

The Congress of Racial Equality emerged in 1942, established by black and white students in Chicago.  The organization served as one of the big four civil rights organizations through the civil rights era.

During CORE's heyday, the members of the organization participated in lunch counter sit-ins, Freedom Rides, and marches with Martin Luther King, Jr.  However, during that time period, a very liberal and militant reputation began to rise up.  Then, in 1968, things changed for the Congress of Racial Equality.

CORE's new National Chairman in 1968 became Roy Innis.  Mr. Innis did not agree with the liberal left direction the civil rights movement had been heading.  He rejected the Great Society, and believed the way to go for the black community was not through the path being created by the Democrats, but through self-reliance, personal responsibility, and an embrace of the system of American Liberty.

Roy Innis, and CORE, became a target of black leaders.  The NAACP, and people like Al Sharpton, became very critical of CORE.  In 1987, in fact, on the Morton Downey Jr. program, during a heated debate, Roy Innis knocked Al Sharpton to the deck. . .



During the nineties and the first decade of the new millennium, CORE played a minor role and reduced in size greatly.  But, during the Obama administration, as racial division became a major issue, and then exploded with the arrival of Black Lives Matter, CORE's role as the conservative alternative to the NAACP became very important.

The Congress of Racial Equality has been working on expanding their reach, once again.  As Roy Innis continued to be the National Chairman of the organization, his son Niger Innis became the National Spokesman.  In May of 2016, a plan was hatched to work on opening new chapters in California, with classes regarding American Liberty, and the Principles of the U.S. Constitution (based on the concept of a biblical foundation) attached to each chapter.

I was approached shortly after that, and while the plans are in the earliest stages, I have been working with CORE to establish classes regarding the promise of liberty at each of the chapter offices as they are opened.

More news coming as this effort grows...

Thank you. . . from Constitution Radio

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

A few weeks ago Constitution Radio lost a couple advertisers, and the battle to fund the program began.  The listener response has been amazing. We have raised over $1,000 to almost finish funding the second hour of the program.  Thank you.

While technically we are still $200 away from fully funding the program, that is something we will likely be able to raise through other means.  Fact is, that second hour was paid for by the listeners. . . which means it is now commercial free.

Thanks.  See ya Saturday on Constitution Radio - - - all two hours of it.

France's Voters Reject Establishment in Election

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

In the United States, Donald J. Trump upended the political establishment, throwing out the professional politicians from the Republican side of the race during the 2016 Primary, and the Clinton Machine from the Democrat side of the race during the November Election for President of the United States.  As an outsider, he was seen by the establishment as a dangerous populist, and the knives have been out ever since.  Those outside of the establishment have been making ground in Europe, as well.  In Britain, the Brexit vote told the establishment that the U.K. voters no longer wanted to be handcuffed to the rest of Europe through the European Union.  In France, with the added issue of Muslim refugees and the coinciding rise of Islamic terrorism in the country, outsiders Emmanuel Macron and Marine Le Pen won a victory in France's first of two elections for the country's presidency.  Marine Le Pen, coined by many as being France's version of Trump, is calling for France to exit the E.U., and be more strict on their immigration rules in order to protect France from a steady increase of Muslim migrants.  Independent centrist Emmanuel Macron may not be a hardcore socialist like the rest of France's political establishment, but he does believe the relationship with the European Union needs to be tighter, not severed.

This is the first time in 60 years none of France's mainstream parties have entered the second round of the election.  While Emmanuel Macron won first place ahead of National Front leader Marine Le Pen, the next round at the ballot box may be anybody's game.  With many other candidates in this latest round of votes, Macron achieved 23.8 per cent of the votes, followed by Le Pen with 21.5 per cent.  In the next round, it will be a one on one battle on May 7.

Le Pen did not mince words regarding her opinion of the establishment.

She said, "It is time to liberate the French people from the arrogant [political] elite."

American Detained in North Korea

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

Americans are not in North Korea often, but when they are, they are at risk of being detained.  One could say the same about the Middle East.  I have a friend who visits Iran twice per year.  His family still lives there.  He has to be careful, however.  He can't be completely truthful while there, even to family members.


The detention was confirmed by Martina Aberg, deputy chief of mission at the Swedish Embassy in Pyongyang. The embassy represents US interests in North Korea, since Washington and Pyongyang do not have direct diplomatic relations.

"He was prevented from getting on the flight out of Pyongyang," Aberg told CNN. "We don't comment further than this."

The US State Department on Sunday said it was working on the case.
"We are aware of reports that a US citizen was detained in North Korea," said a department official. "The protection of US citizens is one of the Department's highest priorities."
The detained American is a professor, according to South Korea's Yonhap News Agency.
At least two other US citizens are known to be currently in North Korean custody.
Otto Warmbier, 21, a student at the University of Virginia, was detained at Pyongyang airport on January 2 last year after visiting the country with a tour group. He has since been sentenced to 15 years of hard labor for allegedly removing a political sign from a hotel wall.
Kim Dong Chul, a naturalized US citizen of Korean origin, was arrested on October 2015. Last year, North Korea sentenced him to 10 years of hard labor on espionage charges.

Since 2013, at least two other US citizens and a British journalist have also been detained for shorter periods and then released.
All of them were grabbed by North Korean security forces as they attempted to fly out of Pyongyang airport.

Master of Ceremonies Conquered

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The event?  An Evening Under The Stars by Birth Choice Temecula.  It is the annual gala, the largest fundraising event of the year for the pro-life pregnancy crisis center. Last year they paid for a professional emcee and a professional auctioneer.  This year I offered my services as emcee at no cost, and my friend, an amateur auctioneer, offered his services for the price of his tux rental.  After it was all over, we had comment after comment by attendees that we were a better team than the paid professionals from years before.

"In other words," my wife said later on last night, "you've discovered something else you are good at."

"Everybody knows," my daughter in law said, "that you're a good public speaker."

That was the hoped for reaction after I told my family about how well the event went where I had been tagged to be the Master of Ceremonies.

While I've been a public speaker for about a decade, a radio host for slightly longer, and an instructor for nearly as long, emcee is a new experience.  I decided to open up with my "God voice," low and commanding, and it worked well.

What made the evening go so well?

For one, I only referred to my script once, and when I did so, it wasn't while I was on stage.

I wrote out eight note cards with what I wanted to say, practiced with them a couple times before my radio program began (from which I had to flee quickly after it was over to get to the event on time), did not memorize them, but remembered essentially what I wanted to say, and then never looked at them again (except the one time, because I wanted to tell the funny I had come up with about half way through the event).

The funny?

"Show of hands, how many of you in the audience are not from the Temecula Valley?"

About a dozen and a half hands went up.

"How many of you are from outside the Inland Empire?"

Five, all at the same table.

"How many are still here from last year's event, but have been stuck here in traffic?"

An few hands went up, with chuckles.

On the spot funnies were also inserted.  One auction item was offered by a local police department, and after providing the description and the winning paddle was determined, I said, "Good for you.  We need all of the shooting practice we can get, because when seconds count, the police are only minutes away."

A former city council member friend of mine commented later, "That was great, you poked the police in the ribs, but everyone was laughing about it."

What resulted was a natural, spontaneous delivery throughout the night.  Fortunately, I am one that knows how to read a crowd, and ad lib as necessary.  And, it was tons of fun.

The live auctioneer is a friend of mine.  He's an amateur auctioneer who delivered a professional performance.  We had never worked together before, but with me reading the descriptions of the items up for bid, and adding my own comments about the items, and playing off the crowd as he was doing his thing ("Really?  You are going to let that guy outbid you?"), it went over well.

In short, I had fun, and was happy with the result.

Thank you, Birth Choice Temecula, for giving me the opportunity.

Marine Le Pen: On the Rise

By Douglas V. Gibbs
Author, Speaker, Instructor, Radio Host
Donald Trump has said the Paris terrorist attack would boost Marine Le Pen's presidential chances after a last-minute poll gave her a modest increase in support.
The US president said the shooting would "probably help" Ms Le Pen in Sunday's election, because she is "strongest on borders, and she's the strongest on what's been going on in France."
"Whoever is the toughest on radical Islamic terrorism, and whoever is the toughest at the borders, will do well in the election," he said.

An Evening Under the Stars: Pro-Life Gala

I am excited.  Now that the Radio Program for today is over, I am off to Temeku Hills to be the emcee for tonight's huge Birth Choice Temecula event.  Among the auction items is a couple of my books with a certificate for the highest bidder to spend time on my radio program with me.

It's too late to buy tickets, but I'd love to see you at next year's event.

This is my second year to be a member of the board of directors for Birth Choice Temecula.  I am the Secretary, and I appreciate all that this organization does to save the lives of babies, and be a voice of love for those women who are in pain because of their decision to abort.

Angry and Foolish Left-Wing Democrats

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

◆ It didn't stop with United Airlines - the pawns have been taught to be hair-trigger angry: New surveillance video shows a passenger shoving an American Airlines pilot, last Wednesday, in the concourse of Terminal C at Kansas City International Airport.  The two had just left the aircraft after a flight from Dallas.

◆ The Leftists Don't Realize the Failures and Violence going on are Because of THEIR ideology (or, maybe they do, and it is all a part of the plan): With Venezuela’s Socialism Spiraling into Chaos, NY Times Blames the Mess on ‘Populism’.

◆ Thought Crime Orwell-Style Launching without the leftists realizing their censorship is anti-freedom and pro-sharia: Germany's Cabinet approved a new bill that punishes social networking sites if they fail to swiftly remove illegal content such as hate speech or defamatory fake news.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's Cabinet agreed on rules that would impose fines of up to 50 million euros (53.4 million dollars) on Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms.

German Justice Minister Heiko Maas said that the companies offering such online platforms are responsible for removing hateful content. He said the new bill would not restrict the freedom of expression, but intervene only when criminal hatred or intentionally false news are posted.

Germany poses a particular problem for U.S.-owned social networking sites accustomed to American standards of free speech. Due to its Nazi past, Germany bans public Holocaust denial and any overt promotion of racism. The issue has come to the fore amid the recent influx of migrants to Germany, which has sparked a backlash among some Germans including a rise in online vitriol.

◆ The Liberal Left Continues to Deny that Islam is the reason behind the rapes and molestations: Three refugees, ages 14, 10 and seven, pled guilty to sexually assaulting a five-year-old girl in Idaho.

The boys, one from Iraq and two from Eritrea, entered their guilty plea last week but the case’s resolution received almost no national attention.

Genital mutilation in the United States, but liberal left continues to proclaim Islam is a peaceful and harmless religion:   A Detroit emergency room physician was charged with mutilating the genitalia of two 7-year-old girls in what is believed to be the first case of its kind brought under federal law.

Jumana Nagarwala of Northville was charged with female genital mutilation, a five-year felony, and transportation with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, a felony punishable by 10 years to life, according to a complaint unsealed in U.S. District Court.

◆ Liberal Left Democrats Find the Darnedest things to ticket you for. . . because it's all about control of your life: A man who fought a $128 ticket for leaving his car running was on the losing end of a court case earlier this week and may appeal the ruling.

Taylor Trupiano, 24, who lives in this suburb about 20 miles north of Detroit, was warming up his car in his driveway Jan. 5 when he ran inside to get his girlfriend and her 2-year-old son. That 10 minutes or so was enough time for a Roseville officer to issue him a citation because he was in violation of a state law intended to hamper car theft.

Trupiano's vehicle was left "wide open" near the bottom of his driveway about 2 feet from the sidewalk, City Attorney Tim Tomlinson said.

With the rise of liberal left Democrat Party violence, and call for socialist revolution, is it any surprise?  The Communist Party USA (CPUSA) has been receiving membership requests ever since Donald Trump was elected President.
Millions of youth mobilized in support of the progressive ideas of Bernie Sanders during the Democratic Party primaries. Schepers is convinced that if the Vermont Senator had been Trump’s opponent, he would have won.

Berkeley's Intolerance Cancels Ann Coulter

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The tolerance, or lack thereof, of the liberal left snowflakes is remarkable.  They claim to be tolerant, yet exhibit the actions of tyranny.  They are doing anything and everything they can to silence any opposition to their point of view.  These are the same tactics of all tyrannies in history.  The fascists, communists, and all other totalitarian dictatorships.  Yet, they claim it is their opposition who are the fascists and tyrants.

In Berkeley, at the University of California, a hot-bed for leftist ideology, any and all conservative speakers are being threatened, and the each of the speeches have been canceled under the threat of violent rioting.  Are those the actions of freedom, or Marxist revolution?

The problem is, UC-Berkeley, and other colleges, will continue to cancel speeches that disagree with their ideology (like they did to the April 27 Ann Coulter speech), because they are either too fearful, or they are complicit.

While Berkeley says they are trying to negotiate a new date for Coulter, the failure to do so is no surprise.

Not only is she the political opposition, but also all they have to do is refer back to the Milo Yiannopoulos riots, where masked, rock-throwing thugs led the evening to 20 arrests and fights in the streets.

Many of the protesters, by the way, are non-students.

So, the campuses, if they really wish to be the location of free-thought they claim to be, would do what they could to ensure anyone the opportunity to speak.  Let the students be who they want to be, but that is a two-way street.
Berkeley’s move to cancel Coulter follows the Black Lives Matter disruption of a UCLA speech by the Manhattan Institute’s Heather Mac Donald, and efforts to muzzle her the next night at Claremont-Pomona College — 200-odd protesters chanting “Shut it down!” and “From Oakland to Greece, f - - k the police.”

Do they not understand they represent tyranny with that attitude?

Last month, goons stopped American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray from delivering a moderately conservative talk at Middlebury College, with Professor Allison Stanger hospitalized by the violence.

The thing is, the students believe it is proper to act out this way because they have been trained to.  They proudly deny the free-speech rights of people whose writings they haven’t even read because they've been told by their leftist handlers to do so.  Do they not realize they are mindless pawns doing the bidding for people who in the end wish to control them in ways they believe their opposition wishes to control them?

It's the great lie. The great deception.  One that emerges often throughout history.  Greece.  Rome.  Nazi Germany.  Soviet Union.  And so on, and so on.

The colleges won't stop the madness because they want the madness.

They call for anarchy and revolution.  What they will get is tyranny and death if they succeed.

In Defense of President Trump

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The Never Trump conservatives are worse than dealing with the liberals, sometimes.  Like leftists, they attack with profanity and ad hominen attacks.  On Facebook I've been having an interesting conversation with one in particular...

----------------------->

Gary Jackson You are insane. You Trumptards are America's greatest danger.

You believe every bullshit conspiracy that Alex Jones and his fellow moonbats throw out there.

Clare Green That's your opinion and I accept our difference of opinion. I refuse to call you names Gary Jackson and Gevevieve Robinson...

Gary Jackson No, it's an established fact at this point!

Especially now that Trump is aligning America with Muslim Hitler!

Clare Green You're being a drama queen. Cool down.

Gary Jackson No, Idiot, I refuse to "cool down" !

Trump inviting Turkey's newly minted murdering dictator to eat at OUR HOUSE is the equivalent of Franklin Roosevelt inviting Adolf Hitler over to congratulate him after his successful Night of the Long Knives!

Trump joined such august groups as HAMAS, the Muslim terrorist in congratulating this animal!

Of course Trump loves murderous dictators. In fact, he's a tad bit jealous!

Wise up, dumb ass!

Willy Glen I block all trumpers and enjoy every second of it.

Douglas V. Gibbs Wow, you never trump folks have really bought into the left's propaganda. Have you truly studied Trump? Have you read the art of the deal? Besides, if we as Americans were truly doing our job to keep the republic (remember, Benjamin Franklin said, "a republic, if you can keep it") it wouldn't matter who's in the White House. What are you doing to make this country better, other than bitching and complaining and calling people names on Facebook?

Gary Jackson Douglas V. Gibbs YEAH, I've "studied" Trump!

I've been NEVER TRUMP since the 1980's when that pig was viciously attacking Ronald Reagan, and the very economic policies that saved America!

Your god-king Trump was the "star witness" those Anti-American mongrels used to attack Reagan during bullshit Congressional hearings designed to attack Reagan, and the policies that not only saved America's economy, but created the longest period of economic growth in our nation's history!

Again, that idiot Trump was OPPOSED to Reagan's incredibly great policies!

Trump spent most of the 80's and 90's snorting coke and raping under age girls over at his CONVICTED PEDOPHILE buddy Jeffrey Epstein's Manhattan apartment, and ripping off ever contractor, banker, and small business stupid enough to do business with him!

Oh, and filing bankruptcy ever third Monday!

In 2000 Trump ran for President as the nominee of the ULTRA LEFT WING Reform Party! He lost....big league!

Then the piece of shit became a 9/11 Truther, and started blaming Bush and calling for his impeachment.

All the while calling his buddy, and fellow child rapist, Bill Clinton....and I QUOTE "America's greatest president"!

Oh, and of course, becoming one of Hillary's top donors and loudest cheerleaders!

BTW, I love how you Trump cultists bring up "the left" without the slightest ounce of irony!

You idiots are leftists! Trump is a LIFELONG DEMOCRAT!

Trump is a BIG GOVERNMENT leftist pig!

The notion of a Republic has never entered his dementia rattled brain can't even comprehend Liberty and Freedom, two words that NEVER crossed Trump's lips during the campaign.

Trump is a vicious narcissistic sociopath who is using the presidency to make millions for his own bank account!

That pig sabotaged #FullRepeal because Ivanka's husband Jared and his brother Josh own a company, Oscar, that was created SPECIFICALLY to make millions (potentially BILLIONS) of ObamaCare!!

That is a CRIMINAL conflict of interest, and absolute grounds for impeachment!

BTW, dumb ass. ...ALL of Trump's adult children, and his ex-lesbian porn actress wife Melania are REGISTERED DEMOCRATS

Hell, Ivanka is best buddies with Chelsea Clinton!

Know where Ivanka and Chelsea were the morning after Daddy Dearest accepted the Republican nomination in Cleveland?

Throwing a democrat party fundraiser for Corey Booker, that's where!

Oh, and Ivanka, as well as Jared, have close ties to George Soros, just like dear old daddy Trump!

I bet you are such a dumb ass cultist that you don't know Soros has been Trump's business partner for decades, or that our new Treasury Secretary is Nazi Soros' HAND PICKED protégé!

Oh and "Mad Dog" Mattis is trying to place another Soros lackey in a top job at the Pentagon!

So yeah, moron.....I've "studied" Trump. Studied him for almost FORTY YEARS!

Maybe if idiots like you had "studied" Trump, we wouldn't have this filthy pig in the White House!

We needed a reasonable competent human being as POTUS, not a coke addled, pussy grabbing, child raping, left wing Statist, Reality TV show presenter!

You know, you could duct tape a muskrat on a monkey's ass and teach it to look like a dipshit and say "you're fired" and do it with more class than your god-king Trump!

I've had it with you idiots!

You are America's greatest threat!

Poster children for requiring a minimum IQ level before someone is allowed to vote!

The democrats put up their shittiest candidate in history, a sure win for anyone with a pulse, and you retards chose Trump, who not only lost the popular vote, but barely eked out an electoral victory!

If I voted for Trump I would be too ashamed to show myself in public, let alone actually admit it. Never mind coming to his defense!

You Trump cultist put idolatry of this prick over God and Country. Party over principle.

You have no honor. You have no soul!

Douglas V. Gibbs: Gary Jackson, thanks for the foaming at the mouth, profanity-laden response. I am not a Trump cultist. I hold all presidents to the standard of the United States Constitution. While I am not fond of the fact that we only have a two party system, I recognize the fact that it is a part of our human nature. So, logic dictated voting for Trump, not because I am some mindless automaton, but because he was heads and tails the better of the two candidates. I have watched the man go through many changes and periods of growth since I have been paying attention to him. He first caught my attention when he bought the New Jersey Generals in the USFL. Has he said and done things that are not consistent with who he is trying to be now? Absolutely. David Horowitz used to be a communist. Andrew Breitbart began as a hard left Democrat. Ronald Reagan signed a pro-abortion bill into law as governor of California. I am sure you are not now who you once were. In between the name calling you keep talking about what was, and not what is. Did you know that James Madison was a big government guy going into the 1787 constitutional convention, but by the end of the convention had a belief system more like Thomas Jefferson's? When you look at Trump's history, look at his business strategies, his negotiation skills. Also, I am a firm believer that he did not lean liberal or conservative when he decided to run for President in this last election. He just knew that Obama's presidency was a travesty, and he was pissed the Republicans weren't standing firm on immigration and Islam. So, he entered the race to draw attention to those issues. I, actually, did not like him as a candidate. I, originally, was a Scott Walker supporter. After Walker dropped out I really didn't like any of the remaining candidates. Anyway, Trump's no bullcrap attitude, and willingness to take it to his opposition struck a chord with the American people. He got popular, and the Democrats and leftist establishment went nuts on him. They, the left-wing establishment, literally threw him into the arms of conservativism, and he learned from it. Through it all he became more conservative, and gravitated towards conservatives and Christians. In short, he is learning to be who, deep down, in many ways, he already was. As for his dealings with Democrats, and more specifically, the Clintons, in the past...here's what you learn when your job is to separate money from people. Republicans and democrats both have money, so, for the sake of business, you schmooze with all of them. Do I worship at the alter of Trump? Of course not. I am not a, how did you put it? Trumper? I am a constitutionalist who is constantly working to get this country back on a constitutional trajectory, and to be honest, we have a better chance of that with Donald Trump than we would have with Hillary Clinton. So, rather than attack Trump as the enemy, as you do, I would rather work to encourage him to move in a direction consistent with the U.S.Constitution.

Gary Jackson Trump was still a democrat the day he declared his run as a Republican.

And how DARE you compare that filthy animal to Reagan!

Reagan was always a CONSERVATIVE and only joined the GOP because the democrats, Trump's party...had just gone to far left!

Trump STILL believes is the same left wing Big Government Anti-American bullshit he has ALWAYS believed in, you blithering idiot!

And spare me the binary choice and "but Hillary" horseshit!

Only a mindless idiot would think, if Hillary was bad...somehow her best buddy, long time donor and loudest cheerleader, and of course FELLOW LIFE LONG DEMOCRAT, would somehow be better!

That industrial strength stupid! Criminally stupid, in fact!

Trump is a pig. He is mentally unstable and is aligning us with a murdering Muslin animal who wants to reconstitute the Ottoman Empire and create a world wide Caliphate!

End evidently, it's because Trump has one if his shitty hotels in Istambul!

Millions will die, but who cares! Yeah Trump!

Two major entities congratulated that animal on his recently stolen election. Trump...and HAMAS!

You are an idiot of the highest order, and most certainly a mindless zombie cultist.

No decent human would even attempt to defend Trump and his shit show!

Seriously, it's like a goddamned reality TV show! There hasn't been a single day without a scandal or major turmoil or BOTH!

We haven't even hit 100 days of this clown show yet!

Know what REALLY pisses me off? The Sweet Meteor of Death broke it's promise and passed Earth by in November!

At least that offered humanity a sliver of hope for some relief!

America is finished.

Thanks to a bunch of raving lunatics for fell for a left wing con man!

The party of Lincoln, Coolidge, and Reagan is dead. Highjacked by a bunch of Alt Right White Nationalist Nazis, and idiots too stupid to pay attention to what all that means!

There is a special place in Hell for everyone who cast a vote for Trump and handed America to Satan!

You could say Hail Mary's from now until the end of time but it ain't gonna help!

Now piss off dumb ass, and take your idiotic "binary choice" rationalization for pure evil with you!

Douglas V. Gibbs: Gary Jackson, the hateful rhetoric you use is not necessary, but actually reveals a lot. While Reagan said the Democrat party left him, reality is that he grew, realized the Democrats were who they were, but chose his words carefully so as to try and bring a few Democrats with him. Ever since Andrew Jackson the Democrats have stood against the Constitution, while smiling and saying otherwise. Only Kennedy broke the mold on a handful of issues. As for Lincoln, he was a racist progressive who took advantage of the abolitionist movement and the War Between the States to drastically move the U.S. away from the Constitution. I find it fascinating that you stick to your Trump is a liberal screamfest, while Trump has largely made conservative decisions and surrounded himself with a large number of conservatives and Christians. Would he not, by now, if he was who you say he was, have surrounded himself with leftwing nuts? Sure, he's not batting a thousand, and other than Coolidge, we have not ever had a 100% conservative and constitutional on everything republican president. That said, even if Trump was what you say, do YOU really believe Hillary Clinton would not have been worse? I find your lack of logic and failure to realize we had a "one or the other" choice disturbing. I actually had to severe a professional relationship with my former co-host on my radio program because of his anti-trump ravings on the program and on my website...not because I disagreed with him, but because he used the same kind of hateful language and rhetoric you use. If he would have practiced a more reasonable style of arguing his point, it would have been different. But, like you, he used an out of his mind hateful rhetoric when talking about Trump and to be honest, using that kind of approach won't change minds, it will only drive people away. In short, sometimes it's not what you say, it's how you say it. As for Trump inviting any Muslim leader to the White House, that is simply protocol when dealing with world leaders. Jefferson invited a Muslim leader to the White House when he was President and he was fully aware of the danger Islam presented. For many reasons it is necessary in politics to make a show one attempted a reasonable path of verbal discourse, especially when dealing with a left-wing media that will hammer on any chance to attack him...especially when there are people out there like you who falls for all of the leftist reporting.

Clare Green Oh good grief.... how you do go on.

Gary Jackson You are a complete idiot!

Calling Lincoln a "racist" is beyond the pale and shows that you don't know any thing about Lincoln.

It's pretty sure that you don't know shit from Shinola!

This isn't just some random Muslim Trump is cozying up to! This is a murdering pig who just STOLE an election, according not only to the opposition, but every single international organization that observed the election. An election, referendum, actually, that makes him an absolute dictator!

Oh, and this monster wants to revive the Ottoman Empire! A worldwide Muslim Caliphate.

Obviously you are too stupid to comprehend what that means!

It means millions of innocent people killed if this animal succeeds, and with Trump and raving lunatic cultists like you helping him along, he just might!

But hey, at least Trump Tower in Istanbul is safe!

BTW, dumb ass. ...in Jefferson's day, America was dealing with Islamic terrorism too! Our very first war as a new nation was against Islamic terrorism!

America's Navy and Marines would do what no other nation do, and STOP Islamic terrorism on the high seas!

This heroic feat is memorialized in the Marine Corps Hymn!

Read up on the Barbary Pirates!

Learn things, idiot!

Clare Green I never called Lincoln an idiot. Check your facts.

Gary Jackson I was responding to your buddy who DID call Lincoln a racist! He is a dumb ass of the highest order.

A degenerate Trump cultist, complete ignoramus!

Clare Green We disagree. That's it. I've read the things you're referring to and it's my constitutional right to have my own and separate opinions. Freedom of speech. I respect that you are brainwashed!!

Clare Green Gary Jackson I refuse to sink to your level.

Gary Jackson I love how knowing the TRUTH is being "brainwashed" to a Trump cultist!

Even more hilarious is that you wrote that with no sense of irony whatsoever.

Bravo sister...B.R.A.V.O.!

You Trumphumpers are fascinating. Dangerous and stupid, but fascinating!

Gary Jackson Honey, you could never RISE to my level!

You voted for Trump. You joined hands with Lucifer himself.

You own this betrayal of not only America, but all of mankind.

Clare Green Rize???? HA1

Clare Green IDK what you call me, ok!

Gary Jackson Pretty obvious you are incapable of coherent conversation. Typical Trumpanzee!

Clare Green Rise.

Clare Green Lucifer...Oh please, Drama Queen.

Gary Jackson You nutters are no different than your fellow democrats!

Gary Jackson I don't count off for spelling!!

Especially these days!

Clare Green I'm gone. We obviously disagree and that's that.

Gary Jackson Well....bye!

Or....better yet, maybe you could stick around, engage in intelligent conversation and learn a few things!

Clare Green I've learned how bitter you are. That's enough for me. I'm not engaging with you anymore. All you do is insult and assume things about me that just aren't true. So...Bye!!!

Clare Green Have a great day!

Gary Jackson Anyone who loves America and well, the human race is angry!

I'm not bitter, I am PISSED OFF!

Clare Green Have a great day!

Gary Jackson My days are always great! I'm not burdened with Albatross of having voted for Trump!



Douglas V. Gibbs  Educate yourself:  https://www.amazon.com/Real-Lincoln-Abraham.../dp/0761526463 . . .http://content.time.com/.../article/0,9171,44563,00.html . . . I work, by the way, in many fields, one of them being for racial equality. While I have told people that Lincoln was in many ways a good many in a very unenviable position, his progressive and racist opinions have been pushed down by historians so as to portray him as a hero. He was simply the President during the Civil War, and he used his position to increase the power of the federal government in an unconstitutional manner. As we discussed, regarding Trump, people can change, and I hope that was the case for Lincoln before his assassination - but his legacy was to strip the States of their sovereignty, and to change the country from "the United States are" to "the United States is." Many of my colleagues hold Lincoln in high esteem, and I am in no way saying he was evil, but, he did use the abolition movement to move America in a more Hamiltonian direction, not the country created by the Framers who believed in laissez faire. Sorry you want to call me an idiot, I am nothing of the sort. Ad hominen attacks seem to be all you are capable of. If you have contrary evidence, feel free to share it. I am deeply educated in American History and the principles and philosophies of the United States Constitution. I welcome your challenges.

what is sad about it is that we agree on everything except Trump, and that's enough for him to be my enemy, rather than ally.  The situation is what it is.  He's not going to change it.  And working against Trump is working against any chance for us to not head into what Obama and Hillary wanted for this country.

Lights Out in San Francisco

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The Bay Area, and their fellow Democrats, are well known for lights out.  They are lights out on killing free speech (Ann Coulter is the latest conservative speaker to be attacked in Berkeley), the lights are going out regarding solar energy, the Democrats in Sacramento are trying to turn the lights out on private properties by messing with Proposition 13 with San Francisco Democrat Nancy Pelosi calling for support of the bill, and then there is the literal lights out in San Francisco due to a power outage.

Friday Morning's blackout in several San Francisco neighborhoods forced the closure of businesses, a BART station, cable car service and a federal courthouse.

According to Pacific Gas and Electric Co., 95,000 customers lost power.  There was a fire at a substation, but it is not clear if the fire and the outage are connected.

Melissa Melendez: Gas Tax Passed Illegally

By Douglas V. Gibbs
AuthorSpeakerInstructorRadio Host

The Democrat Party seems to be anti-Constitution, anti-law, and anti-common sense.  How good can liberal policies be when they even have to bribe their own legislators to pass their own liberal left utopian policies?

In California, lovingly called by the locals "The People's Republic of Californiastan," the latest destructive piece of legislation to catch everyone's attention is the Gas Tax.  Governor Brown's gas tax is similar to the one that got Gray Davis recalled in 2003.  But, what's even worse about this one is the money is no doubt not going to go into infrastructure.  It is a desperate attempt to raise funds to pay for out of control pensions, illegal alien benefits, and Brown's bullet train to serfdom.

But, there is even more to the story than just a damaging and ridiculous piece of Democrat Party legislation designed to either milk our wallets, or knock us out of our cars.  According to California Assemblywoman, Melissa Melendez, it is downright criminal.

From Melendez's Website:
Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez (R-Lake Elsinore) (who, by the way, represents my city, Murrieta, as well) sent an official letter to California State Attorney General Xavier Becerra calling for an investigation of apparent quid pro quo-inspired vote trading, in order to pass Senate Bill 1, possibly violating several state and federal laws. 
“I am for working toward a solution and understand the need for compromise, but there is a big difference between compromise and bribery,” said Melendez. “The Governor, Speaker Rendon, and President pro Tem de León doled out 1 billion tax payer dollars in deals to buy a handful of legislators’ votes to pass their gas tax. That’s not ethical and I believe, if the Attorney General actually looks into this, SB 1 will be found illegal.” 
Article 4, Section 14 of the California Constitution states, “A person who seeks to influence the vote or action of a member of the Legislature in the member’s legislative capacity by bribery, promise of reward, intimidation, or other dishonest means, or a member of the Legislature so influenced, is guilty of a felony.” 
Leading up to the vote on Senate Bill 1, there were numerous reports of members of the legislature in both the State Senate and State Assembly actively seeking “deals” to earn their support of the tax increase. The same day Senate Bill 1 was brought to a vote, Senate Bills 132 and 496 both were amended with language from the widely-reported “deals” struck to earn these legislators’ votes. 
The arrangements made were for those legislators to support Senate Bill 1 and in exchange Senate Bills 132 and 496 will pass with their predetermined deals. This appears to be a standard quid pro quo exchange, which has been made clear by these members’ public statements about the evolution of their decision making and their rationale for voting for Senate Bill 1. 
“I sent a letter to Attorney General Becerra calling on him to open an investigation into the possibility of illegal vote trading undertaken to pass this $52 billion tax increase,” said Melendez. 
Several state and federal laws may have been violated on this illegal vote trading scheme including California Constitution, California Penal Code Section 86, the federal Hobbs Act (18 U.S.C Sec. 1951), and the federal Honest Services Fraud (18 U.S.C. Sec. 1346). 
Assemblywoman Melissa A. Melendez represents the 67th Assembly District, which includes the communities of Lake Elsinore, Canyon Lake, Murrieta, Menifee, Wildomar and a portion of Hemet. It also includes the Riverside County unincorporated areas of Lake Mathews, Good Hope, Nuevo, and Winchester. Follow her on twitter: @asmMelendez
While there is a push for Brown's recall, this could shake up California enough to lead to the recall (and criminal conviction) of a number of key Democrats in the States.  Could it be that the Democrat Party's confidence has gone so far that like the Obamas and Clintons they are beginning to believe they are above the law?

Email of the Week: The Power of Individual Giving

Posted by Douglas V. Gibbs

This waitress doodles on a receipt. When she opens Facebook 2 hours later, she almost faints.

Tim Young and Paul Hullings from New Jersey are hearty firefighters that live for their work. They once worked tirelessly for 12 hours to clear out a fire. After which, being completely exhausted, they went to a diner around 6 am to request the strongest cup of coffee the diner could muster.



Their waitress that day was Liz Woodward and she just happened to overhear the two firefighters discussing their tiresome battle. Eventually, when Tim and Paul went to pay, they were quite surprised. Instead of their bill, they were given this message.



As Tim and Paul read this message, their eyes fill up with tears. Emotionally, they thank the kind waitress for her warm gesture. On Facebook, Tim recounts the event : “Such a selfless and kind act. I definitely urge my friends to make a trip out and support the business, and if Liz happens to be your waitress, tip big."




But the story doesn’t end there.! The firefighters learned that Liz’s father, Steve, is quadriplegic and has been paralyzed for 5 years. Liz set up a donation page in winter to fund a wheelchair accessible vehicle so that she can take her father places. Tim urged people on Facebook to donate to Liz’s crowd-fund: “Turns out, the young lady who gave us a free meal is really the one that could use the help..."




Then, the unbelievable happened: within a few days, she had gathered more than $70,000 - far more than the $17,000 needed for a wheelchair accessible van.! Liz and her family couldn’t be more grateful to the two firemen: ”All I did was pay for their breakfast. I didn’t expect anything more than a smile,” says the waitress.
“It goes to show that you just have to be kind to each other and that even the smallest gesture can change a life.”




This story is proof that kindness pays off - sometimes a thousand fold.! If this heartwarming gesture moved you, then share the story of Liz, Tim and Paul with all your friends.!
