My Favourite Russian

When I was a child all we ever heard was the Russians were going to get us.  The teacher taught us how to get under our desks in case they attacked.  When I was thirteen, Sputnik was launched and we were all doomed!  My friend Bobby Gibson named his bike Sputnik and started smoking Players Navy Cut  cigarettes.  He said we were all going to die anyway so why not enjoy ourselves!  I never bought into the notion that smoking was having a good time. I was too worried about how I looked and smelled to smoke.

My mother did a stellar job of convincing me only very bad street walking girls and wayward movie stars smoked. She told me they all smell like cigarettes and had bad breath, not to mention yellow teeth and stinky hair. I got the picture. Why wear fancy perfume if you smoke?

It was the Russians I never understood.  Daddy who fought in WW2 and spent two years in York England talked about “The Bear to the North” and said Churchill said never to trust them.  We all knew about Churchill and the Royal Family and how the little British Children were sent on trains to the countryside during the wicked German Blitzes.  We loved and respected the Royal family and we all liked IKE!

We were worldly, Informed and happy!

Yes, I grew up in a marvellous time. We were kids, no video games but hero’s like The Lone Ranger, The Cisco Kid and Snow White!  It was those Russians that stumped me.

Our neighbourhood was very ethnic,  Italians, Irish, Poles and a few Germans but they were all  Catholic, no sense in fighting with people you go to Church with.  They all had stories to tell and that’s what I loved the most.  Far away places, I never dreamed that I would see any of them, growing up in Canada we thought the USA was foreign and very mysterious.

It was those damn Russians.  Didn’t they learn anything from the War? And if they were so bad, why did we go to Madam Fenia’s for dinner every other Sunday and eat Perogi?  She was a Russian and my mother’s best friend!  The Papa was named Conrad and they told stories about how they escaped Russia by travelling to Japan during the Revolution.  I loved reading about Anastasia and all the KIngs and Queens and especially the Fabrege eggs. I was a most peculiar kid!

I learned to give everybody a chance, trust but verify and I have been that way all my life.  Putin is a very bad actor, but he hasn’t jostled with Mr. Trump yet, he just might have a few lessons to learn. My money is on Trump!

The Brilliant Deplorables!

I never gave up hope.  I was addicted to Fox News, Tivo became a way of life for me, roaring through the nightly news programs and picking our the people I wanted to hear.

My husband told me I was going ’round the bend and it didn’t even bother me.

I love History and have always been interested in Politics. I am far too impatient to have ever been a politician and I am not politically correct!  I have no problem telling you where to put it if I don’t like where you’ve got it, but nicely.

I prayed Donald Trump would win this election. Sometimes on my walks I would say things like “God, I know you don’t care about our stupid politics but wouldn’t you like someone in there who would bring You back into our lives?” The art of the deal comes to mind.

I just kept thinking, People are fed up, they simply can’t keep doing the same things and looking for a different result. But, mostly, I worried about the people who would vote for a woman they knew accomplished nothing substantial in thirty years and constantly lied to us. A woman so paranoid she risked the Security of this Nation to hide her nefarious deeds.

I faltered, I couldn’t comprehend it. I justified in my mind they were voting for Bill. They were remembering the prosperous 90’s and forgot what the Clinton’s were really like, the corruption, the scandals, the suspicious disappearances, all forgotten. A man who had oral sex in the Oval office with a 20 year old intern, lied and was impeached, lost his law licence…how could they be so stupid!  Bill had nothing to do with the prosperous 90’s, he was busy chasing the ladies, it was the dot com boom and Newt Gingrich and “the Contract for America” but people don’t do research, they have feelings and emotions and little actual data.

The night before the election my dear husband said to me, “Look, if Hillary wins it isn’t going to change our lives and we only have one vote each so worrying about it doesn’t matter.”  I knew he was right, but it never was about us. It was about the country we are leaving to our grandchildren…we got ours and I want them to get theirs, to feel the power of success…the American Dream for themselves!

And then came the night of the election and after being glued to the television nightly, I couldn’t watch! I put on Netflix and watched “The Queen”.  I love this country and had come to love Donald Trump, warts and all.  Then my husband came into the room and said, “I think Trump is winning.”

And he did!   The best is yet to come and Donald Trump with the smartest people in this country working with him will bring it.  it’s on the way!

God Bless America!

Nation of “Sayers”

We “say” we want real change. 70% of us say we need change. We think the country is on the wrong path!

We “say” we want fair trade and  jobs.

We “say” we want our veterans taken care of.

We “say” we want our cities safe and law and order to prevail.

We “say” we want ISIS eradicated.

We “say” we want America first, we want accountability on money sent to other nations.

We “say” we  are tired of our politicians dooming our children’s futures.

………YET WE ARE BEING OFFERED A SOLUTION  WITH DONALD TRUMP yet we vote for a 30 year corrupt politician with nothing new, nothing accomplished and was complicit  in causing most of the problems?

Keep it simple.  Change will never come from a woman who has had numerous chances to make positive change but concentrated on keeping her face in the taxpayers dinner plate for over 30 years.

Judge people by their family and friends. Acquaintances and Accomplishments. Leadership abilities!

You can tell a lot about people by what they actually do…….not much by what they say.

 

One World Order

Hillary’s email revealed she wants a One World Order…. America, are you paying attention? She told you this by saying she wants OPEN BORDERS. You see, many politicians with huge swelling heads don’t mind a one world order if they can run it.

They long ago dumped the idea that is America…that is really what America is…. a glorious idea!  Our founding father’s had it right, these fools are playing with fire and we are going to get burned…not them. They will continue to amass fortunes until there is a vast separation between the workers and the elites, this is how Europe, England in particular became a country in chaos with elite leadership telling them the government would make their lives better. So, they got low cost housing (slum living) gov’t subsides (food staples) no real jobs and mediocre health care. Such a deal!  No hope, something America cannot and will not stand for. Constant gov’t intervention chipped away at the fragile eroding middle class, many fell below the poverty line and needed the corrupt government who was causing their problems!

But, The English people had one thing they forgot about.

PATRIOTISM! They liked being English. They loved their country warts and all. They even loved their Queen! They got sick to death of the elites telling them they were better off…they knew they weren’t. They had civil unrest, they had strife and watched their standard of living shrink. The economy was in free fall. Sure the wealthy were doing fine…..they always do, but unlike America, there wasn’t much chance of getting wealthy with the system the wealthy put in place.  So, the elites got a shock…BREXIT!

What a shocker! How could the people of England be so unhappy? Maybe they didn’t like open borders and being over run with people who do not like them or think like them…and they never will. People who wanted medieval laws and customs…and just maybe they were afraid of living in fear of being killed by them!

Meanwhile, America has concentrated on picking up papers in the park and shaming those who toss trash in the streets. In England they concentrate on trying to teach these hairballs not to rape their women!

England knows war on their shores. They know first hand what can happen. Germany does too but they haven’t figured out how to successfully rebel yet. They will.

One World Order……evil politicians know what they are doing. They don’t give a tinkers damn about this country being exceptional…they want it to be like all the others and the way to do that is civil unrest.  Take over the healthcare, control the sub standard education system, cause divisions…divide and conquer…they are doing it!

But we have a weapon. We have Patriotism too.

DONALD TRUMP is a bar room brawler with a head for business and the heart of a peasant. He knows what they are trying to do. He loves America, he thinks we are exceptional and he wants to do something about it. He knows they have sent our manufacturing away. He knows everyone is not a doctor or a lawyer. He knows the most valuable asset we have is our people, workers, farmers, doctors and small business entrepreneurs. And he knows we are exceptional and when we stand together as Americans…. we are unstoppable.

Do you really care what he said to another man in private? Are there really adults out there who don’t think a man who owned a beauty pageant wasn’t getting ANY? Hollywood is predicated on this stuff and the people love it. Bill Clinton had sex with women in the White House, I wonder if he used dirty words? Hillary doesn’t care because they are a power couple intent on exactly that…power. Bill is a crooked and very skilled politician with a deep and scary flaw…he is a predator. Donald Trump is not going to have sex with anyone in the White House except his beautiful wife.

Enough is enough. The media is on this because they like it the way it is.

It is wrong, it is immoral but I am not trying to elect a religious leader, I want to elect someone who will stop the corruption in Washington and let us be what we were designed to be…. The beacon of the world with a strong military, vibrant economy and lead by selfless patriots.

The Patriots would have been shooting by now!

Gone with the Windsock

This is just another chapter of the original book “As the Stomach Turns” the  ongoing saga of the Clinton’s. The not so secret rendezvous of Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, talking trash on the tarmac in Arizona in 106 degree weather. Golfing? A man with a heart condition?  She doesn’t have grandchildren and talking about his grandchildren for 30 minutes would be …well not likely. The fix is in folks but we knew all along didn’t we?

As the jets fly, we gather for the academy award winning performances of two innocent actors bumping into each other to discuss postponing the “other” scandal….THE CLINTON FOUNDATION, where miniscule amounts of money go to “causes” and the Clinton’s live like royalty from the well intended donors money.

Her platform is to trash talk Trump, she has nothing else. I have yet to see her accomplishments unless you call blowing up the middle east something to be proud of.

She tried to take credit for a Children’s Foundation in Arkansas back in the good old days but Edward Kennedy kicked her in the pantsuit. It was HIS cause and she never touched it. Ever notice that the Kennedy’s (the only prominent Democratic Party Family) have nothing to do with the Clampetts, Oh I mean Clintons. Then we have do nothing Senator from New York, promising jobs but no delivery on that. Oh, but I did find two post offices she named in Arkansas all by herself while doing a job Bill gave her.

America, if we don’t wake up she will be adding chapters of scandal for the next four years. If anyone believes she will do anything positive for this country they are not paying attention….History tells us what she will do, WHAT SHE SAY’S DOESN’T MEAN A THING.

Come together over me

They will come together.  Trump did hurt feelings and I wish I could take back a few things he said…but not all.  He is right on about everything and we know it.  The tassel shoed men discussing how to save the world in bars in Georgetown have failed and they are mighty upset.  We sent you to Washington and you didn’t represent us!  Party is over boys.  Even those on government aid should wonder about their futures.

Dumbing down the country and making everyone the same  is not the answer and never will be.  Sticks and Stones….remember? It is time for America to change, the same old guys want the same old things….not this time.

Donald is far from perfect but only God is perfect. Many world leaders were brash, remember Churchill?  He was the greatest man of our century and often a clown when it came to behaviour. He despised fancy cocktail parties and disingenuous people and had fun insulting them!

“Mr. Churchill, I do believe you are drunk.”

“Yes I am and you madam are ugly.  In the morning I will be sober and you will still be ugly.”

Doesn’t get much worse than that, yet this often insensitive, brilliant man saved the free world.

Petty arguments and bruised feelings are not worth us losing an election that will matter for years to come.  Quite often we find the truth hurts!  We simply cannot go on the way we have been, Hillary has no new ideas, she is the old guard and she must go.  She is part of the cause, certainly not the solution. Get over the nonsense,  let’s get on board the Trump train and make this country great again.
