[GUEST POST] America Saved My Family After We Fled Iran. We Must Protect Our Freedom

A Child Living in Fear

How does the child of an immigrant family from Iran feel about this country?

Well here is the story of my family … you decide.

As Armenians, we are all too aware of History and oppression and prejudices. 

Our ancestors were massacred by the Ottomans, and yet to this day, it is denied and not recognized. 

Did we all make a “Promise” to never forget? Yes, we did.  However, the world refuses to remember our losses, our tears.

Now, fast forward to the Bolshevik revolution.  Many Armenians fled into what was at that time Russia. 

They worked hard, had families, acquired homes only to have it all taken away.  How does this happen you ask? 

Imagine you are a young child when your home is suddenly invaded by a number of people with covered faces and weapons. 

Now imagine they storm your house, go upstairs.  You hear screaming, you run to the stairs to see your mother being thrown down by one of those men.

As you are crying and trying to help your mother, those men come down the stairs and declare that everything in the home now belongs to the people.  As a child, you don’t understand, and you scream at them only to be told that you are not sharing your wealth and that you and your family must now give it all up. 

So, you must now start all over. 

You must grow up working at a young age, get married, and work long hours into the night sewing. You are doing what you must to feed your young son and while you dream of leaving. 

Your husband now has left and somehow you manage to save up enough money to take your child and smuggle him out of the country. 

Where to? IRAN.

Life in Iran

This son, my father, now is grown. While he is enlisted in the Shahs military, he meets his future wife. 

Soon, they get married and have a little girl. 

Tensions in Iran, even in the ’50s was high.  The Shah was westernizing the county too fast.  At this time, my grandmother worked at the American embassy and could see the turmoil happening.  The danger escalating.

Two years after I was born, my mother becomes pregnant again.

“I will not have another child born in this country,” she says. 

Desperate and scared, my family flees with nothing but the clothes on their back.

My father, with a 2-year-old child, a pregnant wife, a grandmother from Russia half blind needing surgery and the mother’s sister; they secure passage to a land that they had only dreamed of. This land gave hope of starting fresh where they could finally be FREE.

The Land of the Free

I am now 2 years old, playing on the bridge of this ship when I suddenly see that everyone is screaming, cheering and crying.

I run to my mother and father. 

“Why is everyone so sad,” I asked. 

My father looked at me, picked me up and pointed to this grand statue in the water.  He pointed to it and said, “We are not sad my angel, we are happy.” 

“Why?” I asked. 

“Because we are now truly free, and no one can ever hurt us again.”

Honestly, as a child, I did not understand. 

I did not understand why we had to live with our relatives, why my father was going to school every night and work all day. 

Why did my grandmother, who was old, had to go to night school to learn English? 

I did not understand until 6 years later when my parents came back from a trip they took that day with big smiles on their faces and said,

“WE ARE NOW CITIZENS OF THE USA!”

America The Beautiful

I remember when my great aunt and aunt were here on a visit from Iran in 1974 when they got a call from their neighbor. 

“You have to come back home, or they will take it all”. 

We begged them not to go, my father said he will help them to become citizens, but as Armenians, they should not go back. 
However, they did and what did they go “home” to?

They took their home, they fired them from their jobs, they closed the Armenian schools, they destroyed our churches.

We never saw them again.

On another visit, my father’s cousins came to visit from the USSR. 

I remember taking them to a grocery store, you know, something we do every week and don’t even think about. 

My father and I were halfway down the first aisle when we realized they were not with us. As we went back to the door, I saw them standing there in tears. 

“You can just walk in and get whatever you want?” they asked. 

It was then that I realized what a shock this must have been to them. 

“The shelves are all full, nothing is rationed… is this the way it is all over this country?” 

My father now had tears in his eyes as he put his arm around them and said: “This is what capitalism is, this is how we live and it’s not just food. It is anything you want as long as you can afford it.” 

I did not expect their next words:

“They have lied to us our entire lives!  How can we go back now knowing what we do?” 

They did not go back. My father helped them to become citizens.

There Are Many Like Me

I am not the only one with a story like this one. 

Many have similar stories.

Many have suffered through history. 

And many like us have learned from our own history.  I was a“dreamer” and so were my parents. 

They ensured that I would be able to follow my dreams by coming to a country that some only dream of and others have been blinded to believe is evil.

Do we have problems in this country? Yes. 

Have I agreed with all its policies? No.  There is one thing I will always be grateful for; that my parents made the decision to come to a land like no other on this earth!

How does THIS immigrant child feel about this land?

It is my home, it is my life, and I will die to ensure that it never becomes the land that my ancestors, my parents and I fled.

GOD TRULY BLESSED THE USA.

This week’s guest post was submitted by a Closet on the Right community member.  Her wish is to remain anonymous while helping everyone understand the dangers of history and tyrannical governments.  Her hope is that we use her story as a cautionary tale to protect America at all costs, or fall victim to the oppression that has appeared time and again throughout history.

A Closer look at the Arizona Election

Arizona Midterm Election, A Closer Look [GUEST POST]

On The Hunt for Facts

Since the recent election, I was concerned about the outcome.

The Republican candidate in Arizona for Senator won on election night.  However, the Democrat candidate was declared the winner almost a week later.

With other elections such as Florida and other states having allegations of voter fraud, I took it upon myself to at least in a small way look at the results myself.

I started with getting the election results from previous elections, dating back to 2010 for comparison, going granular not only by county but by precinct in each county.

Then I made a spreadsheet.

Well, because I like to do spreadsheets and yes I am that guy. I did find some rather interesting results.

The Counties

First, let’s start with the simple number of registered voters versus actual votes counted.

Obviously, A should never be larger than B, such as Precinct 1 would have 500 registered but only 300 voted including early ballots, provisional, etc. Here’s what I found.

AZ Voter Registration Sheet

Apparently, the accounting is not correct, especially if these are supposed to be the official results.

I also added the 203 column, which referred to Prop 203 in 2010 which legalized medical marijuana in Arizona.

Again, it had the same pattern.

Polls said Arizonians didn’t want it. Election night the vote said outright that they didn’t want it.

But hey what’s this, a box? Oh, interesting there’s all these uncounted ballots, and well looky-here it just happens that there are enough votes that it did pass by 4,341.

As I mentioned, these are from the official results from the Arizona Secretary of State.

This alone shows that there is not a proper accounting in the least of whether the registered versus voters are legitimate. Here’s the breakdown by precinct.

The Precincts

AZ Precinct Breakdown

First, I am not showing the actual vote tallies merely because I do not know if they’ve been officially released to the public. First, since the vote tallies are yet to be released publicly, we won’t be stating those here. I just called up each county to ask and they either directed me to the location or they emailed it to me directly.

So until I see that’s it’s been put onto the website as released I’m going to treat it as embargoed, just in case.

The Breakdown

What I have here are all 26 precincts that have more votes than registered. Column F shows the number of votes over and above what was registered.

Columns H and I, well ok I guess I’ll show the votes here, no one tells anyone ok?

Column J is the percentage of votes to registered, essentially the turnout.

At the top is 67%, that’s the average throughout the state.

As you can see going down the column these areas had an overabundance of turnout.

And of course, the R and D is who won or a tie if the vote was the same for both.

Therefore, column O is the amount of percentage over and above the state average.

Yeah, granted, some areas had lower turnout over here and higher turnout over there. Taking these out for this point, there are areas that had 0% or really low turnout, and areas as high as 97%.

However, Doney Park at 1824%?

Oh, Yuma, it had zero registered voters and 19 actual voters, I have no idea how to calculate that one.

So columns P & Q (sorry for S & T, ended up duplicating) are then weighted to that 67% average of what that vote might have looked like. This would mean that McSally would’ve had 3,408 votes less and Sinema 5,712.

The next sheet I’ll admit is purely speculative, and you could shoot a thousand holes into it.

Previous Trends

Historical Voting Trends.

What I did here was in each election going back to 2010 I looked at all the races to look at one specific criterion.

On off-years such as this one, I looked at the Governor candidates, 2016 and 2012 were Presidential candidates.

For each precinct I wanted to gauge whether it leaned Republican or Democrat, going by say for 2018 Precinct 1 carried the Republican, and so on.

In total, I had five elections to base that on, so if a precinct went four or five for a given candidate I would say it would lean that way, less than that I disregarded it.

I then asked some simple questions. How can this precinct that was historically Republican-leaning could vote for Sinema?

That to me had a big disconnect.

True, maybe McSally didn’t campaign there. Maybe she said she was anti-Trump and the voters didn’t like that? Again, many variables.

But that’s a large number, as I show here that’s 11.4% of the precincts that for all five elections were leaning Republican decided to switch?

The next column is worse, looking solely at the 2018 election, those precincts that carried Ducey 237 decided to vote against McSally? Or more precisely voted for the Socialist candidate that in several videos referred to Arizona as the Meth lab of the United States, as well as the sixth C for crazy.

Yeah, I’m sure Arizona wanted that.

The next two columns I did the same questions for Prop 203, received even more stark numbers.

Now granted, demographics shift. Precincts get redrawn, some are added to this election and others dissolved. And as I mentioned maybe McSally had her own issues with getting the message out. It’s just that to me this seems very odd, someone is going to explain it to me.

So let me be clear. If Sinema won fair-and-square then so be it. The manner in which this was done leaves me with huge suspicions, and the released data doesn’t help that. In the very least it shows that the tallying has problems, either in the number of registration or in the vote counting.

Granted, mistakes happen. However, did anyone pick up on the last columns I had, where it said R and D?

The number of precincts that I note had 6 where McSally won and 20 that Sinema won. If you take out Yuma since I don’t know, zero registered voters, that gives 5 Republican questionable to Democrat’s 20.

Very interesting to me.

Right now I have serious doubts as to the legitimacy of Sinema’s election. Until those concerns are addressed, quite frankly, I do not recognize her as my Senator. There is too much potential fraud going on here, I don’t know what to make of it.

Lastly, I do concede that it may be that the Republicans need to turn out the vote better next time. I made this sheet to show the weak points versus the strong and who won in each. Heck, the Democrats could even use this, I don’t mind if they use it, I don’t mind a fair fight.

Left's Long March

The Left’s Long March Resumes [Guest Post]

Weaponizing government entities returns, with a vengeance

Antonio Gramsci believed that the path to the seizure of state power was not through violent revolution, like the Communist Revolution of a century ago, but through “becoming State.” Marxist revolutionaries would become the state by taking over the institutions of the state.
This plan/concept would become more familiar by Rudi Dutchke’s phrase for it, “the long march through the institutions.”

In today’s Twitterverse, the long march has been captured accurately by Iowahawk:


Midterms over, members of a newly-empowered Democrat House majority have made no secret of resuming their attack on our Republic from the institutions that comprise it.

Congressman Adam Schiff, soon to replace Congressman Devin Nunes as head the House Intelligence Committee, is wasting no time signaling his intention to use his committee to attack the Trump presidency and cripple its ability to conduct foreign policy.

He intends to use his position not only to end ongoing investigations into Democrats’ misconduct but to pivot and attack, using the subpoena powers of his committee within the institution of the House of Representatives as his castle from which to demand respect.

What can’t be co-opted (in this case, the executive branch), they will destroy.

The Plan

Adam Schiff

His plan is about twisting the emoluments clause into an unrecognizable form.
With the help of the “mainstream” media, Democrats intentionally confuse the American people to undermine a President because they lost the election.
Indeed, Democrats publicly plan to display their “resistance” files by weaponizing the House on this issue; and multiple others across other committees in a non-stop assault on this President to destroy the executive branch’s ability to govern.

Contrast this to the out-of-bounds efforts to expand his predecessor’s executive power, even extraconstitutionally on multiple occasions, and one gets the new Democrat modus operandi: co-opt or destroy.
They will mangle them emoluments clause into nothingness; just like they desire to do with the electoral college, redistricting, state power, the US Constitution, etc.


The Middle Eastern Re-alignment

Iran Nuclear Deal

President Trump has done a lot in the Middle East to help realign its power structures away from radical Islamists and toward moderates, reversing Obama’s policies of tipping the scales towards the radicals.

  • Through ending the Iran “nuclear deal.”
  • Standing up to Iranian saber-rattling
  • Calling them out in front of the world at the UN
  • Supporting our historical allies
  • Snubbing our adversaries once again
  • Recognizing the capital of Israel
  • Moving the US Embassy there, etc.,

Thus, the President has made it clear US leadership is back and leading from the front.

Libya: A Warning to Islamic Dictators


The sad reality of international relations in the Middle East is that there are no good guys, just less bad ones.

Democrats have put their marker down in defense of the Muslim Brotherhood and in the overturning of friendly regimes.

Credit: IMREDIFFMAIL



Libya is an excellent example of a multi-decade diplomatic success story turned lesson for pro-western, Middle-Eastern dictators.

Libya had disarmed and ended its nuclear program and turned in all its nuclear materials. The payback: A bombing of Libya that ultimately resulted in the ouster and murder of its leader, Gaddafi.

Libya and Gaddafi could not be used for Democrat purposes, so he was destroyed. Consequently, leaving behind a weak central government and an environment for terror and chaos to thrive.
The lesson for the region’s dictators: Comply with the west and die.

Later, Libya was used to run weapons through to Syria at Benghazi, enabling the rise of ISIS, but we won’t talk about that…

Tilted Public Perception


Notice that its perfectly fine for his predecessor, President Obama, to order the killings of civilians, and oversee the removal of heads-of-state.
He also overlooked the political murders of hundreds of thousands across the Middle East.
His administration halt investigations into/prosecution of Hezbollah (a terrorist organization) operatives running cocaine and heroin through the United States.
Next, he used the proceeds to purchase weaponry (tacitly funding a terrorist organization by knowingly not halting it, undermining the DEA) because doing so threatened the Iran capitulation, er…nuclear “deal”, pursuing an unconstitutional treaty with that terror state, etc…

That’s all above board.

We won’t even get into the targeting of American citizens via the IRS, via FISA court abuses.
Or the weaponization of our intelligence agencies, and gaslighting an entire nation using non-existent Russian collusion to influence the 2016 election.
We now know this is a cover for Democrats’ collusion with Russians to do the same via a “dossier” of “salacious, unverified” information paid for by the DNC and the Hillary campaign.

Credit: level9news.com

Nor will we delve into the Clinton Foundation’s complete sellout of American technological secrets.

According to the FBI via the Skolkovo project, the Clinton Foundation received large donations immediately after the selling of American uranium to Russian.
Meanwhile, Hillary was Secretary of State and influencing American corporations to participate; or the use of a private e-mail server to conduct classified business.  Seventeen of the twenty-one businesses who participated also left massive contributions to the CF.

Nah. No influence peddling there.

No serial violations of the (re-interpreted on the fly) Espionage Act.

That too is above board. Democrats did it; it has to be!


Cooperate or Destroy


Instead, Democrats will attempt to destroy an emerging alliance between a moderating Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Israel against hardline Iran, Turkey, Syria; using the guise of Saudi officials staying at Trump-branded properties when conducting official business.
Nevermind that the President had passed off control of his business holdings to others.
They will even try to leverage a potential political assassination by another nation to do so.
President Trump must not be allowed to shape foreign policy; his business activities must be criminalized to prevent it.

You see, only Democrats are allowed to wield power.
Democrats use their offices to enrich themselves from American technological secrets and national security assets.
They overlook a terror network destroying the lives of Americans, so as not to threaten a nuclear capitulation to a terror state at war with the United States. 

Nothing will be allowed to get in the way of the Democrat totalitarian gang including:
  • The American people in selecting Trump as their president (we’re enemies of the republic for doing so).
  • A qualified nominee for the Supreme Court
  • Governors lawfully redistricting after years of census results.
  • A growing economy where taxpayers keep the fruits of their labor.
  • Election deadlines or voter eligibility.
  • Laws allowing states to clean their voter rolls.
  • The election system itself (in favor of a national popular vote to destroy our republic for a direct democracy).
  • The Bill of Rights, the separation of powers doctrine, nor the rest of the Constitution.

Congressman Schiff’s promised “investigation” is but a small part of this larger effort.  The executive branch (thus the American people’s choice to run it) could not be co-opted; so it must be destroyed, using other governmental institutions. Take notice as the media promotes and cheerleads all of it, under cover of “press freedom”.

Romanticizing China

Romanticizing Communism

Media Outlets are Promoting Communism

Communism in China
Credit: NYT The Land that Failed to Fail

It was a casual Sunday.   My daughter had another grueling two-hour volleyball practice that I use to catch up on whatever project I’m working on at the moment.

Naturally, a lot of scrolling happens during these practices.  During my snoozefest scrolling sesh, I saw it.

An NYTimes Article is romanticizing “Communist” China. Inappropriately titled, “The Land that Failed to Fail.”

Now, this is the second time in recent months I’ve seen a magazine article romanticizing the concept of Communism.  The last time was Teen Vogue of all places.


A growing discontent for capitalism and a resurgence of Communism or “Democratic Socialism” (as some on the Left like to use as a disguise for Communism) is spreading in the United States.

Let’s focus on this one particular article about the success of Chinese Communism though.  It says,

In the uncertain years after Mao’s death, long before China became an industrial juggernaut, before the Communist Party went on a winning streak that would reshape the world, a group of economics students gathered at a mountain retreat outside Shanghai.

The article goes on to boast the massive growth of China’s economy in the past 40 years as some Communist Christmas Miracle.  This miracle defied all odds and didn’t fail when everyone said it would.

Why is this article idolizing Communism as some socioeconomic beacon of success?

Seriously? Has this writer ever been to China?

Every nation that attempts Communism fails, including China.  The only thing remaining in China that is Communist is the political party that should have but didn’t abandon the name after it failed.

Don’t believe me?  Let’s look at some history and most importantly, some facts.

A Brief History

Communist China
Image Credit: Ron Paul Liberty Report

Mao Zedong defeated the existing Chinese regime in 1949.

Immediately after, he brought true, authentic Communism to the people of China.

Communism is not Love.

Communism is the hammer which we use to crush the enemy. -Mao Zedong

His first order of business was equally distributing all land among the people.

Next, he centralized all means of production under the control of the state.  Agriculture shifted to a system of collective farming.

Landlords and capitalists were suppressed and stripped of all property and wealth.

Mao’s Great Leap Forward was a massive failure that led to famine and death of its citizens.  This failure inevitably led to Mao tightening his grip on the population.  Any critics of his radical ideology were imprisoned or killed.

Political powers grows out of the barrel of a gun. -Mao Zedong

The Communist reign of Mao ultimately led to the death of up to 80 million people and China was only freed of the tyranny in 1976 when he finally died.

Communism did fail in China.  What is left does not even remotely resemble Communism.

Since the NYT author failed to examine the facts, we took the liberty to do it for him.

The Ten Planks of Communism

Ten Planks of Communism

Let’s look at the ten basic tenets of Communism.

  1. Abolition of Property in Land and Application of all Rents of Land to Public Purpose.

  2. A Heavy Progressive or Graduated Income Tax.

  3. Abolition of All Rights of Inheritance.

  4. Confiscation of the Property of All Emigrants and Rebels.

  5. Centralization of Credit in the Hands of the State, by Means of a National Bank with State Capital and an Exclusive Monopoly.

  6. Centralization of the Means of Communication and Transport in the Hands of the State.

  7. Extension of Factories and Instruments of Production Owned by the State, the Bringing Into Cultivation of Waste Lands, and the Improvement of the Soil Generally in Accordance with a Common Plan.

  8. Equal Liability of All to Labor. Establishment of Industrial Armies, Especially for Agriculture.

  9. Combination of Agriculture with Manufacturing Industries; Gradual Abolition of the Distinction Between Town and Country by a More Equable Distribution of the Population over the Country.

  10. Free Education for All Children in Public Schools. Abolition of Children’s Factory Labor in its Present Form. Combination of Education with Industrial Production.

Now Let’s Compare with China

  1. Abolition of private property- Nope.  You can own a home in China.  Granted, you don’t own the land it is on, but real estate is a booming industry in China. By a Marxist definition, the land is not used solely for the public purpose.  In fact, the state issues 70 year leases on land
  2. A Heavy Progressive Income Tax- Again, not even close.  The tax rate for most Chinese is lower than many countries like Japan and the Nederlands.
  3. Abolition of Rights of Inheritance- Wrong again.  Here is the Law of Succession in the Peoples’ Republic of China.
  4. Confiscation of Emigrants and Rebels- Partially correct.  Foreigners can own a home in China as long as they have lived in the country for 12 consecutive months.  Although, I’m not sure why anyone would want to.
  5. Centralization of Credit, Banks, Capital, etc.- 

    Noooooooope.  There are privately owned banks in China.  The government stifles their businesses with regulations, restriction of assets and laws, but they exist.

  6. Centralization of Means of Communication and Transportation- No.  Independent and privately owned transportation and communication exist.  It was previously under State control. However, this was one of the economic reforms implemented in the 80’s and 90’s. It must be stated that the media, the internet and other forms of communication are heavily supervised by the State though.
  7. Production/Means of Production Owned by the State- No. The transition away from SOE (state-owned enterprise) was one of the first economic reforms of the 80’s and 90’s when China was removing the layers of Communism from their economy. In fact, the private sector was responsible for 70% of the economic growth once China was free from Communism.
  8. Equal Liability To Labor- Borderline accurate.  China does command one of the world’s most massive armies. However, in terms of Marxism, China does not meet these requirements any longer.
  9. Combination of Agricultural and Manufacturing Industries; In other words, the elimination of class separation- Definitely not.  There is a pretty significant distinction between wealth and class in China.  The nation of China boasts an impressive 476 BILLIONAIRES. The only country that beats them is the United States.
  10. Free Education- Yes and no.  State-owned and operated are the preferred secondary education.  However, they are incredibly competitive.   Also, there are fees and tuition costs, but China’s student debt is virtually non-existent.

What Remains of Communism in China

Above all, China has maintained a strong and authoritative position over the population.

Recently, China increased their interference in the privacy of their citizens with new technology.  Their new surveillance technology monitors each person using facial recognition.  Citizens are rewarded or penalized based on day-to-day behaviors that include small things such as manners, to others such as smoking.  

Citizens in good standing receive additional privileges, while others not in good standing experience fines and even travel restrictions.

Yikes.  No thank you.

Freedom of speech is not a thing in China, either.

Due process? Well, it’s gotten better over the years, but the Chinese are known for imprisoning its people for virtually anything.

Example: An Author was recently sentenced to ten years in prison for writing about a gay sex scene in a book.

Religious persecution is common in China, and they are also a very nationalistic nation. (Think about their Olympic team.  Zero diversity. ZERO.)

Google is currently under intense scrutiny from its employees for agreeing to work with the Chinese government to spy on and control internet usage for its population.

When you look closely, China has more in common with Fascism than Communism at this point. (Don’t tell Liberals, they’ll lose their minds)

Final Nail in the Coffin of Communism in China

Karl Marx’s utopian vision for society relied on the elimination of the bourgeois.  In his mind, societies that exploited the proletariat were evil and must be abolished.

The exchange of labor for a wage, in his mind, was modern day slavery. To reverse this evil system, he believes the State should distribute land equally and create a nation where no one man has anything more than any other.

Sit down, Lefties. I’m about to burst your bubble.

Currently, in China, their entire economy is driven by and relies upon the proletariat. China’s economy has thrived by creating mass-produced exportable goods at prices lower than any other country in the world.

Unfortunately for the Communist, China has been able to lift more people out of poverty by eliminating Communism and implementing Capitalism.

Furthermore, I challenge any Communist, Socialist or Leftist to prove me wrong.

Until then, do yourself a favor and stop romanticizing Communism in articles that you write on your MacBook Pro from your high rise New York City offices.

The Case for Gay Republicans

Gay Republicans are Real

Many on the Left gasp in horror when they meet Gay Republicans.  Somehow, being gay became synonymous with being a raging Liberal.

I’m not a raging Liberal.  In fact, I never have been. I flirted with the Left briefly after I “came out”, but I ended up running back to the Right once I realized I wasn’t obligated to be there.

This concept was simple for me to understand.  I didn’t agree with Liberals on anything aside from gay marriage, so why would I base my vote on a Democrat on one issue?

However, this is considered a cardinal sin in the LGBT world.

It doesn’t have to be.  Here’s why.

The LGBT Community Needs A Strong Economy Too

It’s pretty hard to U-Haul on the second date if you don’t have enough money to buy or rent a house.

Economic prosperity means you and your partner, regardless of what you “identify” as, will have the money to do the things you want to do.

Voting Democrat because you support LGBT rights, also means you’re voting for higher taxes, more government regulations, and weaker economies.

There are other policies that come along with your vote for the Left.

Your Democrat Congressman may support your right to change your gender on your driver’s license, but he also supports legislation that suffocates businesses.

 

If you can’t put food on your table, does it really matter what your license says?

It may to you, but you can’t employ thousands of people with your gender designation.

Open Borders are Bad for Everyone

Being gay does not mean you are obligated to save the world.

In fact, open borders is a terrible idea for the LGBT community because many of the people who want to flood here, punish gays in their native countries with the death penalty.

Allowing anyone to come here without vetting and due process puts our culture, our way of life and our government at risk.

If these people are unwilling to assimilate to American culture, they will bring their archaic beliefs with them.  They will elect people who represent those beliefs.  Those Representatives will influence legislation and ultimately, you.

Linda Sarsour, a prominent Muslim activist for the Democratic Party is vocally anti-Semitic and pro-Sharia Law.  For some reason, she is the poster child for Liberal tolerance and diversity.

However, if she were to get her way and Sharia Law ruled America; women would be oppressed, gays would be executed, and the LGBT community would be forced underground once again.

Ever wonder why there are no Muslims in the Republican Party?  Islam promotes traditional family structure, opposes abortion and much like the Christians, are devout to their God.  It would actually make MORE sense for the Muslims to run under a Republican ticket, right?

Wrong.  Their fundamental beliefs directly contradict American values and rule of law.

Nationalism does not always equal racism.  Racism does not always require Nationalism.

Promoting Nationalism means that you want the people of your country to be taken care of first.

If you’re gay, straight, black, white, Hispanic etc and are a citizen of this nation, that applies to you.

Embrace it.  Cherish it. Protect it.

The 2nd Amendment Applies to Everyone

Gay RepublicansThe LGBT was the victim of violence for many years. (Ironically, now it’s conservatives.)

Do you think if Matthew Shepherd had been armed that night in Wyoming, he would have been beaten to death?  Absolutely not.

Communities who arm themselves remove victimhood from their lives.

Buy a gun, learn how to use it and change the script of our story.  Being gay does not mean you have to be a victim, ever.

Everyone has the right to protect themselves.

Abortion is Murder

Last time I checked, gay people didn’t have to worry about unwanted pregnancy.

In fact, many gay and lesbian couples would gladly take any unwanted baby and raise them in a loving family.

Your sexuality does not mean you have to support someone else’s irresponsibility.

Life is precious and if you are a gay couple who have to pay thousands of dollars to build your family, you should protect it all costs.

If that doesn’t change your mind, watch a video of an abortion being performed.

It will break your heart, turn your stomach and traumatize you for life.

Finally, Gay Marriage is Settled

The Supreme Court ruled on gay marriage.  We’ve established the precedence and overturning it would be very difficult.  Justice Brett Kavanaugh confirmed this ruling during his confirmation process.

When pressed on the issue of Gay Marriage, he stated that the Supreme Court had already ruled on the treatment of homosexual people.

Gays for TrumpThe Republican Party has moved on, so should you.

In fact, almost all of the bigotry, homophobia, and hate I’ve experienced since I came out was from the Left.

Shocked?

You shouldn’t be.  The Democrats have a long and violent history of hate, racism, and discrimination.

It wasn’t until the 1950’s when they figured out the minority vote is a powerful tool.  They’ve been pushing the oppressed and victim platform ever since.

In reality, most Democrats opposed gay marriage for most of their careers. If you think they suddenly care about you now, I have a bridge to sell you.

Just Be An American

Ultimately, the Republican party doesn’t care your race, religion or orientation if you love and protect your country.

Take a look at what you stand for.  What you really stand for, not for what they tell you to stand for.  Are the Democrat solutions really what is best for yourself and this country?

Talk to a conservative or many.  How do they treat you?

Furthermore, disagree with a liberal.  See how they treat you.

We need to stop defining ourselves by singular issues like race, orientation or gender.  We are so much more than that and at the end of the day, you’re just as human as anyone else.  If you take the “gay” out of your identity for one minute, would you still vote the same?

It’s okay to identify with ALL the things that make you, you.  Stop allowing the Democratic Party to hold you hostage because of identity politics.

You deserve better.

 

The Gay Republican movement is growing stronger by the day.  We’re ready for you to join us.

the hateful left

I First Encountered The Hateful Left Nearly 20 Years Ago. It’s Worse Now

It’s hard to pinpoint when this deep, divisive animosity first washed over the country. The election of Donald Trump seems like the starting point to many. However, I can personally trace the beginnings of this back to my days in high school in the early 2000’s. That is when I first encountered the hateful left

This is admittedly anecdotal.

My Beginnings.

I grew up in New York in the 1980’s and 1990’s. My parents were Republicans and loved Ronald Reagan. Though I knew my parents were Republicans, neither of them were particularly outspoken. I knew they voted red and liked Reagan. That was about as much of a political “indoctrination” as I had growing up.

We never spoke about politics, policies, or programs at the dinner table. Politics just wasn’t a part of our daily life. I never heard my parents talk about it with their friends, and my friends and I certainly didn’t know or care enough when I was young. Flash-forward to high school, the year 2000, and the 2000 Presidential Election between George W. Bush and Al Gore. This is when I first encountered the hateful left.

The 2000 Election And The Hateful Left

I was not old enough to vote in the 2000 election but my high school was doing a mock election of sorts as part of a learning exercise in politics, elections, etc. Remember, I had no clue about politics. I had no idea who Al Gore or George W. Bush was. I didn’t know or care about their politics, views, or policies.

A classmate and I were talking about the upcoming mock election and he asked me who I was voting for. I said I was voting for Bush. Why? I dunno. He was the Republican candidate and my parents were Republicans. I didn’t care, so whatever. I should pull the lever for Bush. It’s a mock election at a high school in New York and I’m 17 years old. As a result, it’s not like it means anything, right?

The look on my classmate’s face, and I still remember it, is usually reserved for people who admit to torturing small animals.

“Ew, you’re a Republican?” He asked. “How could you be that?”

To repeat myself yet again, remember that I had no idea what a Republican was. To be 100% fair, I’m sure my classmate really didn’t either. We were 17 after all. However, he had been taught in some way, shape, or form; perhaps by his parents, that Republicans were bad. Not just wrong or misguided or a political opponent. But bad.

Imagine My Reaction

I was surprised. Shocked, maybe. The moment still sticks out in my mind almost 20 years later. I may have even felt ashamed. For some reason, I had “outed” myself as something that other people looked down on. Something bad. Something maybe even evil as far as they were concerned.

That was the first moment I felt hatred from “the left.” It’s anecdotal, sure. I have no idea what became of my classmate or what he considers himself to be today, politically speaking. Granted, he was not “the left” at 17 years old and every bit as uninformed as I was. But whomever put that attitude in his head sure was.

It continued into college.

College Days

My experience in college was not as crazy as you hear about today. But the hateful left was there as well. There are a few moments that stick out in my mind as examples of what could be considered “hatred” by “the left” in college. I’ll stick to one for now.

I had just started school. This would probably have been barely a year after the exchange in high school. My first year in college and one of my first classes. A representative from a local New York organization came to speak with one of our classes.

This organization is relatively well known in New York and I won’t mention them by name. Primarily, they work towards social and environmental reform in and around New York State. The individual speaking (they may have been a student but I’m not sure), was pitching the organization and trying to get volunteers to come get involved. After telling us about all the things they were working on, I was interested. I mean, why not get involved, right? Maybe I could do some good.

The speaker said at the end of her talk that if we were interested to come see her and sign up.

“Unless you’re a Republican,” she said. “If so, then f**k you and we don’t want’cha.”

And just about everyone, including the professor, laughed.

Nothing To See Here?

It wasn’t the foul language. I’d heard plenty by then. I didn’t grow up sheltered. As a teenager, I was as foul-mouthed as they come. Still am, sometimes. But it was all of it. This person had been invited or at least allowed to come and speak to a Freshman college class. She cursed half the country and said “we don’t want you in our group.” The professor, leader of the class and a representative of the school, laughed and went right along with it. The hateful left strikes again.

Therefore, the message was clear. Republicans were not welcome at my school. If it wasn’t clear from that moment, it became clearer in the months and years ahead. I experienced or witnessed similar moments. Nothing was violent or traumatizing, mind you. But it was there and it was accepted.

If I had any Republican classmates, they didn’t out themselves. Classroom discussions about any social, government, or economic issue had to be given a left-leaning curve to it otherwise you weren’t taken seriously. No one voiced opposition. That the left-leaning perspective was the correct one was a foregone conclusion. Of course this is the right view to have. Anything else would just be ridiculous, if not evil. I, like many others, put my head down, did my work, and didn’t get involved.

This ridicule, condemnation, hatred, or spiteful feelings about the opposition were only coming, as far as I could see, from one side. The left. Republicans were the punchline to jokes. George W. Bush was literally Hitler (yes, it was said back then too), and anyone who was even slightly “on the right” was basically not welcomed in with open arms.

No, It Did Not Start With Trump

People like to speak about Trump as the cause of all this. That’s far too convenient. President Trump will not be remembered for being a great Statesman or an eloquent speaker. His rhetoric is charged, no doubt. However, as others have pointed out, Trump is not the cause. Trump is the effect. He is not the disease, but the symptom. Trump is not the beginning, and he may not be the end either.

The election of Trump is a response by Republicans for years of being demonized by their opponents.

Think aborting a baby is bad? You’re a misogynist who hates women. Want to own a gun? You support school shootings and love dead teenagers. Think there’s problems with welfare and it needs to be reformed? You hate poor people, you monster. Do you dare think that maybe the government running healthcare is a bad idea? Wow, now you hate sick cancer patients and want them to die. This is the hateful left.

Bubbling For Years

Years of this, fueled by fiery political rhetoric from the hateful left, and propped up by a corrupt and biased media which is essentially the propaganda arm of the Democratic Party (except for Fox News which is the same thing, just in the opposite direction), has led to this.

First, Republicans sent the good ol’ boy establishment GOP guy from Texas and he was called an illiterate moron who was somehow also literally Hitler and evil.

Then, Republicans sent the war hero whom the left has only recently decided they like again now that he’s deceased. He too was literally Hitler and according to Democrats and the media, probably senile and going to die in office. Then along came Mitt Romney. Perhaps the most morally decent person to seek the Presidency in the last several years. He too, was maligned as a rich misogynist with “binders full of women” who was going to bring back slavery.

Finally, Republicans said f**k it. This country is a china shop and we’re sending in the bull.

By The Way, I’m Not Even A Republican

I never felt like I was “raised to be a Republican.” It wasn’t a core part of my childhood. I certainly was not raised to hate my political opponents. Nor was I raised to think they were bad people. Certainly not evil.

I’m not even a Republican. When I turned 18 I registered to vote. My registration says “Independent.” It did then and it does now. Perhaps in part due to my upbringing I tend to side more with “the right” on issues, but I’m not a Republican and never have been.

So no, I’m not even a Republican. But based on my experienced with the hateful left as well as the behavior of the Democratic Party, I’m sure as hell not that either. I didn’t #walkaway from the Democratic Party. They never wanted me there to begin with.

Pro-Choice

The Bittersweet Irony of The Pro-Choice Movement

The Pro-Choice Debate

The issue of Pro-Life vs. Pro-Choice continues to be a contentious topic in America, even to this day.  Democrats reignited the debate during the debacle known as the Brett Kavanaugh confirmation circus.  With a conservative justice tipping the scales in favor of Republicans, Roe v Wade is once again in jeopardy.

Liberals have convinced themselves that Republicans not only care whether or not they reproduce but also think we want to force them to do so.  By overturning Roe v Wade, their “reproductive rights” will evaporate.  Or so they want you to believe.

It’s Not About Choice Anymore

A woman has a right to choose what happens with her body, right? Her body, her choice.

Pro-Choice AdvocateNo one should force a woman into motherhood if she’s not ready.  It’s the responsible thing to do, right?

Unfortunately, the Pro-Choice movement has evolved into the Pro-ABORTION movement.  It’s not just about a woman’s right to choose any longer.

Now, getting an abortion is a badge of honor.  It’s a sign of defiance against the evil conservative Republicans and their traditional family values.

They’re convinced that we care so much about them having babies that are willing to commit self-genocide out of spite.  According to activists, abortion is the rare fix for rape, incest, life-threatening situations or the occasional lapse of judgment.

Instead, women can now choose to terminate a pregnancy as late as her due date in some states.

The Irony

By committing self-genocide out of what seems to be spite, Liberals are ensuring that the coming generation will likely be the most conservative generation we’ve seen in decades.  In fact, a recent study found that U.S birthrates have hit a 30 year low, well below the replacement level.

Now, I for one am grateful that fewer children are being born into terrible situations.  No sane person would want a child born into an abusive home or end up in the system.
If an early-term abortion prevents this, I can support that.  Ideally, avoiding pregnancy in the first place would be the best choice, but that doesn’t always happen.

They don’t realize this, but liberals are leaving the future of this country up to Republicans.  (Shhhhhh, don’t tell them)

Many celebrities have even jumped on the Shout Your Abortion bandwagon.  Yes, an entire website and a book are coming out of people “shouting their abortions.”

Ultimately, liberals are reducing their voice to a dull roar in America.

To which I say, good.  The “participation trophy” generation is crippling this country.

We Can Still Save Our Country

Republicans, the responsibility of keeping America alive is resting on our shoulders.

Considering the Left wants to destroy American values, let’s be grateful they’re protesting themselves into extinction.  The last thing we need is another generation of entitled, victimized activists who don’t respect our country.

As long as the liberals continue to think we want them to have children, they will do everything they can not to.

In one hand, we value the life of the unborn.  In the other, we value the preservation of our values.  The bittersweet irony is not lost on me, and I hope it’s not lost on you either.

In the meantime; continue raising hard-working, freedom-loving patriots and we can continue to Make America Great.

 

Identity Politics

Identity Politics: A Solution

Elizabeth Warren: The Identity Politics Master

Earlier today, Massachusetts Democratic Senator, Elizabeth Warren released a video of her and her brothers discussing their ancestry.   This well-edited and professionally produced video made sure to exploit identity politics to the fullest.

Elizabeth Warren Identity politicsIn short, the video establishes her 1/1024th Native American blood is “strong evidence” that her claims of being Cherokee are true.  Next, she makes sure everyone knows that her heritage had no part in advancing her career as a law professor.

Oh, and also she has brothers who are registered Republicans.  (Weak attempt to appear moderate and non-partisan? Check)

I mean, we all know she’s going to run in 2020, so she’s laying the groundwork now.  The video basically went down a checklist of potential campaign problems and checked them off, one by one.

My question is:

If she’s not using identity politics to further her career, then why would she release an entire video addressing? And why does she always describe herself as Native American, particularly on the campaign trail?

In recent years, it appears as though Democrats are adding identity politics to their bags of dirty tricks.  I mean, who doesn’t want to elect a minority who can rise up against the straight, white patriarchy and defeat them once and for all? [Sarcasm]

Let’s take a look at how Democrats are using identity politics to get a few more votes.

A Few Examples

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: Claims she’s a working-class girl from the Bronx.

 

Transgender Identity politics
Christine Hallquist

Truth: She grew up in an upper-middle-class suburb of Yorktown and went to Boston University.

 

Richard Blumenthal: Claims he was a nearly died serving in Vietnam.

Truth: He obtained FIVE deferments in the Vietnam and war. When he later got caught lying, he said he “misspoke.”

Hillary Clinton: Well, she’s a woman and obviously we’re due for the first female President regardless if she’s qualified or not. Never mind the fact that her husband has his own section in the library of #MeToo moments.

Barack Obama: Identity politics successfully elected Barack Obama twice.  He also converted to Christianity to improve his public appearance.

Christine Halquist: The first openly transgender Governor candidate that’s currently running in Vermont.

The list goes on, and on…

Why This is Dangerous

By electing representatives based on their identity, and not their merit, we are creating a dangerous situation that has a lasting effect.

You wouldn’t bring a car mechanic into the job of a chef, would you?  No, you wouldn’t.

Just because a person feels passionate about politics, does not necessarily mean they’re fit to be in the political sphere.

Don’t believe me? Take a look at the Democratic Socialist sweetheart du jour, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.  Her entire campaign has been a mess of bizarre statements and what can only be described as word salad.  (She still can’t explain how she’s going to pay for her socialist Utopia.)

When we focus on the race, gender, religion or orientation of a candidate, we lose sight of (or completely ignore) how they feel about real issues.  Real issues that effect real Americans and our lives.

In doing this, we are setting ourselves up for disaster.  Disasters that look like Obamacare, the Nuclear Iran deal and the bank bailouts to name a few.

Just because a person can be chummy with late night talk show hosts and rub elbows with celebrities, does not mean I want them representing me.

Not to mention, using identity politics to make yourself appear to be some champion for the oppressed, is just insulting and cheap.

Simply put, if you can’t qualify for a position based on your experience and qualifications, you don’t deserve the job. End of story.

A Simple Solution (Even though no one will ever actually do it)

Two Words: Blind Elections

That’s right, by having blind elections we can remove identity politics, from politics.  Hear me out.

Imagine in your election, the only things you know about the candidates are:

  • Education
  • Past Work History
  • Citizenship Status
  • Views on all the Issues
  • Goals
  • Political Party (And maybe not even this one)

No more:

  • Race
  • Religion
  • Gender
  • Orientation
  • Cheap Shot Political Ads
  • Good public speakers, horrible public servants

Problem solved!

 

I don’t honestly expect this to ever become reality in this country.  Would be pretty nice, though.  Don’t you think?
