Top 10 Differences Between Real Mafia and #MormonMafia


Fox News commentator Lou Dobbs caused a stir the other day when he tweeted that independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin (who is challenging for the lead in Utah) was a tool of the "Mormon mafia."

We know that the real Mafia has a reputation for scary actions. How does the Mormon Mafia compare?

Secrets to Democrat Campaign Success



11/4/2016
Donald Trump is making his claim that "The election is rigged" a standard part of his stump speech. The main stream media is quick to dismiss his whining, but Trump is not entirely wrong. Democrats have made an art of adding questionable votes to the ballot box for years. This record of election fraud has been carefully documented by John Fund in a series of books including: Stealing Elections: How Voter Fraud Threatens Our Democracy (2008), and Who's Counting?: How Fraudsters and Bureaucrats Put Your Vote at Risk (2012)

Election fraud was also a chapter in Tom Fitton's Clean House: Exposing Our Government’s Secrets and Lies (2016) which I rate the Must Read Book of the Year.

Let's hope the election is not close so that Democrats won't be able to tip the scales with their election manipulations that allow the counting of illegal ballots.


10/24/2016
In a year when all economic and foreign relations markers should point to an easy Republican presidential race victory, the Republicans stand a very good chance of losing.

When the history of the 2016 election is written, the main blame for the under-performing of the Republican party will be the horrible selection of Donald Trump as its presidential candidate.

In 2012, Republicans picked a candidate of impeccable character. The Democrat had to tell the lie that Romney was an out-of-touch robber baron when in reality he was a generous philanthropist.

In 2016, Republicans picked a candidate of immoral character. The Democrats only had to tell the truth to turn off voters. The lewd bus recordings may prove to be the straw that broke Trump's back if the election results show he lost big tie with women voters. The Democrats will be able to thank their allies at NBC for sitting on this story until October instead of releasing it when Trump was running for the Republican nomination so voters could have picked someone else.

For the first 33 Republican primaries Trump couldn't break 50% of the vote. In other words, the majority of Republicans wanted someone else. Could it be that the voters in the majority of the states knew that Trump would be a disaster?

Trump may still win, but it won't be because he earned it. He'd be the most despised person ever elected to be president.

Hello Hillary Justice, Goodbye Blind Justice


With all the attention on Trump not promising to recognize the results of the election, there has been less attention on some of the other things we learned from the third debate. One of the most disturbing was Hillary Clinton's views of how to select a Supreme Court Justice.

"And I feel strongly that the Supreme Court needs to stand on the side of the American people, not on the side of the powerful corporations and the wealthy. For me, that means that we need a Supreme Court that will stand up on behalf of women's rights, on behalf of the rights of the LGBT community ...

"That's how I see the court, and the kind of people that I would be looking to nominate to the court would be in the great tradition of standing up to the powerful, standing up on behalf of our rights as Americans."

It is clear from what Clinton says that she wants judges that have already decided how they will judge. What ever happened to blind justice?

Part of the question from moderator Chris Justice was "what's your view on how the Constitution should be interpreted? Do the founders' words mean what they say or is it a living document to be applied flexibly according to changing circumstances?" 

Clinton ignored these questions in her answer.

Clearly the judges she will appoint will be pursuing social justice, not fair justice. She says she wants judges to stand up to the powerful. Does this mean the powerful are always wrong and should always lose in the courts?

Senator McCain is flouting the idea that the senate block any Clinton nominations to the Supreme Court. Based on here standards for what qualifies as a judge, McCain has a smart idea.

Utah Gets It Right


What happens when you give the voters the choice of unfit, unqualified, and unlikable candidates? In Utah they find someone else.


What's wrong with the rest of America?

McMullin Now in Statistical Tie with Hillary and Trump in This State


A new poll in Utah, completed after the second debate and the release of the Trump lewdness recording, shows that independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin is in a statistical tie with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton with each having a quarter of the vote. Utah could become the first state since 1968 to give its electoral college votes to a third party candidate.

This should not be a surprise. Trump finished a distant third in the Utah Republican caucus with only 14% of the vote. Hillary Clinton is not likely to see much of a surge of support in the few weeks leading up to the election. Her husband actually finished in third place in the 1992 election behind both George Bush and Ross Perot. Utah does not suffer fools like the Clintons wisely.

I think McMullin now has to be the front-runner in Utah, especially since he is still unknown to half of the voters. As the election date gets closer, the anti-Trumpers who first backed Johnson (now polling 16%) will move to McMullin who is a better match for Utah values. Leading Utah Republicans, including the governor were among the first in the nation to abandon Trump. Look to more Republicans who were only supporting Trump as an anti-Hillary vote to move to McMullin now that he is seen to be in a better position to win.

Nationwide polls show that voters are negative about both Trump and Hillary. Most people are voting against the candidate they like worse, rather than for the one they like best. Now it looks like at least one state is going to show these unqualified deplorables that they should both lose.

Way to go Utah.

The Real Climate Change Caused by Liberals...


Hillary Clinton is blaming Hurricane Michael on climate change. 

This is nothing new. 

For at least a generation, the liberal establishment has been preaching the doom and gloom message of first, global warming, and when evidence proved missing, climate change. They claim that over the past century, due to the damaging actions of man, the world is on a path to ruin. They want to force people to stop using fossil fuels and use carbon taxes to collect revenue from those they perceive as using too much energy. They think that getting people to drive electric cars and stopping the development of third world countries will stop climate change. Fortunately, most people recognize that any action taken is unlikely to have measurable results, besides making one feel better. 

However, I must agree that there has been a climate change, only it is not the one liberals usually worry about.
  • Eighty years ago, homes had married couples living together and raising children together. 
  • Eighty years ago, the vast majority of young people did not think promiscuity was acceptable. 
  • Eighty years ago, music was family friendly and not laced with profanity. 
  • Eighty years ago, movies were geared to all audiences and not filled with offensive material. 
  • Eighty years ago, families had books, pianos and radio programs for home entertainment instead of violent, time-wasting TV and video games. 
  • Eighty years ago, people lived within their means and elected a government that did the same.
Sadly, this is the real climate change we have seen in America. Liberals like to say that we have the capacity to change, to protect ourselves, to use our intelligence for the good of the planet and its inhabitants. Good point, but let's not waste resources trying to control the weather. Let's focus on addressing moral climate change, where our actions can have real results.

Please share this post if you agree.

School Bus Stopped From Playing Christian Music


As first reported by the CBS affiliate in Fort Smith, Arkansas, a Siloam Springs bus driver has been banned from playing the bus radio on a Christian music station. Rack up another win for the Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation which forced the school district to stop school children from listening to the "harmful" music of popular Christian singers.

Music has long been a favorite pastime of youth. Parents have been concerned for years about the messages that are prevalent in popular music. Top forty songs promote promiscuity, immodesty, drug use, drinking, misogyny, and many other questionable and debasing behaviors. Christian music is a breath of fresh air with messages of hope, charity, and faith. Based on the action of the school district, listening to Christian music is a dangerous activity that must be suppressed at all cost.

What is next, finding a bus route that will avoid passing churches with message signs out front? Will a bus driver be forced to remove an heirloom cross worn around the neck? Will the children who "suffered" from listening to Christian music be provided with counseling to help recover from the "damage"?

How disappointing that the spineless school district surrendered without a fight. Religion should not be banned from the public square, especially in the form of generic music with a positive message for all. Whenever stuff like this happens, the future of America is darkened.
