Who Has the Substance and the Vision?

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

vis 1If America is to continue to be what Ronald Reagan described as, “the shining light on the hill,” what we need, what we must have, is leadership. True leadership. We must have the sort of leadership that holds the vision of the Founders and Framers in the highest regard and the sort of leadership that realizes that our Constitution regulated government, not guns, placed strict limits on the power of the presidency rather than on the power of the people and made government accountable TO the people rather than making the people accountable to the government.

2016 could well be our last chance to reclaim the vision of our Founders and Framers. It could well be the last opportunity we have to save our exceptionalism and to save our liberties.

What we need, what we must have, is the sort of leadership that is laser focused on what’s best for the nation, how to rebuild our place on the world stage, how to implement national security, rebuild the trust of our allies and how to stop our economic bleeding that is the result of too much government interference in every aspect of our personal lives, too many government mandated regulations and far, far too much government waste in our government’s spending habits.

From the left side of the aisle, the candidates are Bernie Sanders, a confirmed and admitted socialist and Hillary Clinton, a corrupt politician who is under numerous investigations that could, should and I believe will result in indictments including espionage against the United States.

Sour Grapes, False Accusations and Dubious Endorsements

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

vote 1Well NOW, let’s take a few moments here to get a clear picture of the campaign for 2016…a snapshot…a moment in time, frozen so as to really take stock of the current situation.

Shall we?

Dr. Ben Carson is whining, Donald Trump is threatening law suits, Sanders is blubbering that Clinton isn’t enough of a socialist to deserve the liberal/socialist nomination, Clinton is doing her level best to ignore the mountains of evidence that will lead to her indictment, several candidates have dropped out of the race, others that should…haven’t and Jeb Bush’s donors…many of them…want their money back.

I’ve been to a three ring circus before and while this whole thing does bear some resemblance, I believe it comes closer to being a three ring FREAK show.

First of all…Dr. Ben Carson. Before the Ted Cruz campaign sent out an email, reporting exactly what had been delivered via CNN, you were polling in fourth place at 9% of the Iowa vote. WHILE that false report was out there…you were polling at 9% of the Iowa vote and AFTER it had been retracted but while the Cruz camp was still asking your supporters to caucus with Cruz…you FINISHED the night with 9.31% of the vote.

Please explain for everyone exactly how devastating the Cruz camp email was to your final tally.

Then there’s Donald Trump who is threatening to sue anybody he thinks is responsible for his second place finish in Iowa. He claims he’s going to sue Cruz because of the caucus night email. He’s going to sue Cruz for the prior week’s mailer. He’s going to sue Cruz for being born. Hell…I wouldn’t be a bit surprised if he threatens to sue Cruz because the rhyming campaign slogan…”Choose Cruz” comes across more positive than the rhyming slogan…”Dump Trump” does.

And now..

Oh, The Hypocrisy of it All

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

According to Donald Trump, “I could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot people ancou 1d I wouldn’t lose voters.”

Is he the only one who could do such a thing and not lose any of his support?

No.

Any penny-ante, tin-pot dictator in any 3rd world, one horse rogue nation could do it. Lil Kim in North Korea could do it. There was a time when Saddam and Gaddafi could have done it. Lenin and Stalin and Hitler did do it.

Forget 3rd world, one horse rogue nations…hell, Obama could get away with it just to name another dictator and that is exactly what’s wrong in this country. Electing a president has become a side show rather than a concerted effort to choose who would actually be the best for the job.

After Trump made his latest, ‘out of touch with reality’ statement on Saturday afternoon…his Trump-drunk followers started making excuses…”it was taken out of context,” and “he didn’t mean anything by it.” “Lighten up, he’s joking.”

Bullcrap…

Meanwhile, In the Not So Grand Scheme of Things…

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

moron 1With the release of Bow Bergdahl, a deserter who is now facing court martial and for whom, 6 American soldiers were killed…Barack Hussein Obama set the standard for Islamists. Take Americans, hold them hostage and Obama will give you damn near anything you want for them. He’ll pay the ransom.

Last week, 10 American sailors were taken by Iran and in what I am sure was just a convenient coincidence, Obama released 10 GITMO scum the day after Iran sent our sailors back to our Navy and…so far…Iran still has our boats which, I am quite sure, go nicely with the drone Obama gave them a few years ago.

Now we have the great prisoner swap where we got 4 Americans back from Iran and THEY got 7 Iranian nuclear “researchers” back from US along with 14 more who had charges against THEM dropped.

The message from Obama is clear…if you’re a jihadi, some 7th century barbarian and you come across an American…grab them, demand a ransom and then just sit back and wait to get paid. Nothing to it.

This insanity must stop and I believe the perfect jumping off point is at hand.

Ending ISIS Starts With REAL Leadership

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

is 1“For more than a year, America has led a coalition of more than 60 countries to cut off ISIL’s financing, disrupt their plots, stop the flow of terrorist fighters, and stamp out their vicious ideology. With nearly 10,000 air strikes, we are taking out their leadership, their oil, their training camps, and their weapons. We are training, arming, and supporting forces who are steadily reclaiming territory in Iraq and Syria.”

That is just some of the nonsense Obama spewed forth a week ago in what was his last State of Fabrication address but that’s not all he had to say on the topic of ISIS.

“Masses of fighters on the back of pickup trucks and twisted souls plotting in apartments or garages pose an enormous danger to civilians and must be stopped. But they do not threaten our national existence.”

“We don’t need to build them up to show that we’re serious, nor do we need to push away vital allies in this fight by echoing the lie that ISIL is representative of one of the world’s largest religions. We just need to call them what they are  —  killers and fanatics who have to be rooted out, hunted down, and destroyed.”

Let’s start right there, shall we…with calling them what they are.

The SCOTUS and NBC

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on americanpbn.com

A few days ago I wrote an article, “Cruz, Rubio, Vattel and the Ineligibility Lies” in nb 1which I put forth the reasons that both Cruz and Rubio are, indeed, eligible to run for and hold the office of president. That article garnered a whole bunch of notice…much of it positive and some negative.

Obviously, neither Trumpers nor birthers liked it and they let me know about it in no uncertain terms but none of them bothered to argue their opinions with facts regardless of how I encouraged them to state their facts. As I said in the article, “Now, if you want me to climb aboard the crazy train of so-called ‘birthers,’ there are only a few things you need to do. Just show me a law, or a definition from our Constitution that makes either Cruz or Rubio Constitutionally ineligible and not only will I ride the crazy train, I’ll sell tickets to it.”

Not a single one took me up on the offer. Not one and why? Because no law, no U.S. Code and not a single definition OF Natural Born Citizen from ANY of our founding documents exists to prove their opinions to be correct.

I even asked them to show me one Supreme Court case that was ON the topic of NBC and they couldn’t do that either because the Supreme Court has never HEARD a case on NBC.

But there was one person who, on the website ‘Patriot Action Network’ posed a very interesting question and one which I feel deserves an in-depth answer.

Here is that question, exactly as it appeared in the comments regarding my article…
