A Lesson Still Not Learned?
By Michael Oberndorf, RPA
It’s been a while since I’ve written anything in the way of commentary. We reached a point back in 2016 where you were either with us or against us, and nothing anyone could say was going to change that. Since then, I’ve been watching and listening, and, I hope, learning.
I supported Trump from the time it became clear that he actually intended to run. The Republican politicos running were mostly self-serving professional hack politicians, RINOs in the worst sense of the appellation. Senators Cruz and Paul were the exception, but clearly, neither was going to appeal to enough voters to win, and the fact is, they were much more needed in the Senate than in the White House. Trump, the quintessential pragmatist, an ordinary American in many ways, one who had made the American Dream happen for himself, had an appeal that no politician in decades had. He reminds me of the characters played so brilliantly by Rodney Dangerfield in his movies, the successful, nouveau riche developer who doesn’t give a hoohah what the establishment elitists think of him. As with so many other Americans that the political elite and the leftist media sneeringly look down their noses at, I picked him as the winner, and stayed the course.
So, here we are, with nearly a year of Republicans controlling the Presidency, the House, and the Senate. And what is the most obvious lesson that we should have learned from what has been accomplished – and NOT accomplished – by what should have been a slam dunk return to America run according to the Constitution? It’s one that a lot of us have tried, with little success, to get across for years: Without solid conservative constitutionalist majorities in the House, and particularly in the Senate, the President, no matter how good and well intentioned, will be limited in what he can accomplish.
Fortunately, a lot of folks are becoming very aware that the “mainstream” media are anything but mainstream. It’s become obvious that “fake news”, aka, leftist lies and propaganda aimed at undermining our legally and duly elected president and his supporters in the Congress, is being churned out daily by the TV networks and supposed newspapers like the New York Time and the Washington Post. It’s also become obvious that the media and the Democrat Party are partners in crime, engaged in a toxic symbiotic relationship designed to undermine the Constitution and subvert the election process, resulting in a permanent far left majority that will impose a totalitarian, collectivist police state on our once free republic.
Anyone who doubts this need only look at the two criminal, pro-Islamist communists that the party had as their candidates in the last election, and the racist, pro-Islamist communist that they managed to fraudulently get elected to the Presidency not once, but twice before this. I strongly recommend that everyone watch a documentary entitled “The Enemies Within”, available on Amazon Prime, that details the direct connections of some 100 elected Democrats – 80 in the House and 20 in the Senate, including Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine – to proven communist and Islamist organizations and individuals. This is a real eye-opener.
Sadly, far too many Republicans lied about being conservative supporters of constitutional government in past elections, and we have seen how willingly they betrayed those who voted them into their positions of power and privilege. Most of the good that has been accomplished in the past year has been the result of executive actions by President Trump. The RINO Establishment, led by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, have undermined his agenda at every turn. ObamaCare should have been totally repealed, funding for the wall should have been allocated, illegal immigration should have been severely dealt with and those guilty of it deported. Amnesty for the criminal invaders should not even be a remote possibility. McConnell and Ryan have colluded with the lock-step, disloyal Democrats to make sure none of these things happened, and the media lied and lied and lied to make sure that the truth was hidden from the American public.
The media have been pulling out all the stops to convince us that voting for Republicans in the next election will be futile, that the Democrats will achieve a massive victory. Again, all based on phony “issues”, personal attacks, and total lies and distortion of facts. The only thing massive that the Democrats are capable of achieving is, as in all the past elections since the mid-1990s, massive voter fraud. What We, the People need to grasp, and never let go of, is the knowledge that a president is only as strong as the senators and congressmen that We, the People elect to get OUR agenda done. We have almost a year to accomplish this. Let’s git ‘er done!
Donald Trump pulled off the same upset that Leicester did in the Premier League; a 5000 to 1 shot Trump has defied the odds. Republican RINOs have learned a valuable lesson here. Lie, lie and continue to lie and your head will be next to roll. Trump, as we have repeated for the past year, was able to tap into the frustration the majority of voters have.
Lying politicians are the enemy. Political correctness is gone. We don’t cater to no one, we tell it like it is; if you don’t like it, too bad. Sorry that we insulted you. Maybe it is time that you should be insulted. Afterall, we made this country great, you did not. The “you” , they know who they are as the ex-governor of California captioned it right, when he termed the word, “girlymen.” America will once again gain its respect back when Trump prevails in November.
Look out enemies, look out parasites, look out illegals. Time to face the music, time to pay-up. The times they are a chang’n.
Hats off to Lying Ted, he stood fast, but in the end it was his lies and bitterness that finally caught up with him. Not to mention that he was not qualified to run. We can’t wait for Trump to do to Hillary what he did to Bush, Rubio, Cruz and Christie. What a sight to see. Hey Hillary, better get fitted for a kevlar vest because Trump will be shooting RIP bullets at you.
Donald Trump’s supporters in the Empire State made it clear, that Trump is their man. It didn’t take long to separate the men from the boys, but when it was all done, Trump was the last man standing. According to the polls, Trump garnered 65% of the vote with Kasich reaping 22% and Cruz a blip on the radar screen with 14%. In so doing Trump will have picked up 95 delegates.
We have a joke of an arrest here; Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, grabbed the reporter’s arm because it appears that she was in the process of getting into Donald Trump’s face. This was a preventive measure. Any neutral observer would easily see that. To here Cruz’s rhetoric is most pathetic as he elevates the situation into absurdity.
Donald Trump had a Big Night, El Nino drops out, time for Cruz to face the music and Fox News gave Kasich top billing for capturing his home state of Ohio. The reality is that Kasich is a loser, only winning a paltry amount of delegates.
But in the end “we the people” are looking for TRUMP to TOWER over Washington D.C. They have thrown the kitchen sink at him, yet he is still standing. The “powers to be” have suffered defeat after defeat and still living in a fantasy land.
“THE AMERICAN PEOPLE ARE FED UP WITH POLITICIAN TELLING THEM WHAT TO DO.” What we saw last night is “ignition” of the REVOLUTION. As we said before, “REVOLUTION IS THE ONLY SOLUTION.”

The Trump Express is rolling through the Midwest, closing in on the tail of Kasich, in Florida, on the other hand he is about to claim victory; Rubio mired in an Everglades Swamp. Cruz, is waging a good fight, but the official scorecard is not in his favor.
The gang of eight, Romney, Bush, RNC, CNBC, ABC, CBS, CNN and the WSJ have not landed anything resembling a left hook, let alone a right uppercut to the Trump surge. At the end of the day, we predict that Donald J. Trump will have thrown a three pointer that got the attention of Steph Curry.
(click)Trump expected to juice up his run on Super Tuesday where polls have him leading in Florida and Ohio. Wins there will most likely cement his run for the nomination.
The cigar smoke is beginning to rise, a (click here to see what is happening behind the scenes)backroom deal is in the offing. Anything to stop Trump says the RNC. They fear what he represents – Anti-establishment. Many ingrained Republicans are afraid for their careers, being outed as scam artists, politicians on the take, making deals to enrich their family and friends. Donald Trump will find out who they are and this does not sit well with the RNC. Americans understand why Trump momentum is gathering steam. They are sick and tired of politics as usual; sick and tired of politicians lying to them.
Maybe some power broker could conceivably convince Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, and John Kasich to come together, with the expectation that Rubio would be president, Kasich would be vice president, and Cruz would be attorney general or a Supreme Court appointment? It’s probably illegal to make such promises, but it could be stressed, for example, that Cruz would be given every consideration for this spot. Then again, it could also be that once the delegates are no longer bound, they could vote for someone who isn’t even running for president—say, Mitt Romney or Speaker Paul Ryan.
