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..

In His Own Words

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

tt 1As Donald Trump continues to lead in the polls and as we are now but two weeks from the Iowa caucus…the first votes to be cast in our nation in 2016…I felt it was high-time we take a look at WHY Trump is so popular in some conservative circles.

What IS it that the Trumpers are so giddy about?

Trumpers, in their more than self-righteous way, will line up to tell you if you just ask and, I have asked.

Here is what I have been told…

Donald Trump will not be beholding to big corporations.

Are they SURE of this? I mean, Trump has a very long history of making deals with big corporations to finance his projects from hotels and casinos to golf courses and shopping centers and let’s face a certain fact that is being completely ignored by the Trumpers…that being that Donald Trump IS a big corporation.

Trump can’t be bought.

Trumpers will tell you at the drop of a hat that Trump can’t be bought like other politicians. That he, because of his wealth, is above all that but, again there is something which Trumpers routinely, religiously ignore. Trump is the guy that BUYS politicians and their political favors.

In fact, during the very first Republican debate, Donald Trump not only admitted to buying politicians and political favors…

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…

Cruz, Rubio, Vattel and the Ineligibility Lies

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

Obviously, it is once again time to address a certain issue that has, thanks to Trumpers, elig 1been brought to the forefront because they are scared that their one and only candidate…who is by all indications, running for the position of dictator…is on the verge of being overtaken in some key states.

Ted Cruz IS a natural born citizen and so too, is Marco Rubio.

Oh, I know that’s not the scuttlebutt coming from butt-scuttlers but it is true nonetheless.

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.

Trumps Trump-drunk trolls are all over the place spewing their, and his brand of nonsense regarding this issue and not a single one of them has ever produced a shred of real evidence against the eligibility of Cruz or Rubio.

Right Side Patriots…2016 ‘Dream Team’

By Craig Andresen and Diane Sori  Right Side Patriots on http://www.americanpbn.com/

cab 1As primary season kicks into high gear Right Side Patriots has decided to go a step further than what most people are doing…as in laying out who they think their candidate’s Presidential Cabinet should be comprised of. On Wednesday’s Right Side Patriot’s radio show on americanpbn.com we went a step further and laid out who we believe our choice for the new president’s entire cabinet should be not just the ftop few key positions. We now present them here for all to see.

Now before anyone gets “their panties in a wad” as Craig likes to say, please read through the entire cabinet as we think at the very end you will be pleasantly surprised especially if you apply logic to what we are proposing.

President
Marco Rubio…because he is the strongest and most knowledgeable on the most critical cab 2issue facing our country today…the issue of foreign policy as it relates to ISIS and terrorism, and because he supports cutting and dismantling useless, ineffective, and costly departments that do NOT serve this country well. It’s also time to turn the leadership of our country over to the next generation.

Vice President of the United States
Carly Fiorina…knowledgeable, strong, able to react with common sense instead of emotion…could easily step-in to the POTUS position if need be.

Obamacare – A Major Election Issue for 2016

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

As we settle into a new year, 2016, an election year, once again Obamacare rears its ugly soc 1and unaffordable head.

With more and more state Obamacare exchanges dropping like flies, those that remain are scrambling to alter their coverage plans and none of that scrambling is either good for the general populous nor is it making coverage any more affordable.

Both Blue Cross and Blue Shield along with Humana and others have removed more than 2 dozen of their previously offered Preferred Provider Organization products off the market and out of Obamacare over the last several months of 2015 as the cost to them of offering such services was unsustainable. And while this initially seems to make healthcare through those providers somewhat more affordable, the reality is that with less options for individuals, there becomes fewer places where the individuals can obtain care…fewer doctors providing care and longer wait times to receive care.

Another move touted by the Obama regime is the higher and stiffer penalties employed in 2016 for not signing up for socialism. This, they say, will force more people into the socialism system and thus lower rates for all however, at $625.00 or 2.5% of their annual income, the increased tax penalty may well not be enough of an incentive, especially for young, healthy Americans, to drag them into the pool. Even if they qualify for subsidies, paid for by other people’s money at rates of only $100.00 per month…it would still cost the young, healthy American $1200.00 per year for socialismcare as opposed to a one-time penalty of just $625.00.

These issues are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg…

New Year, Same Ol’ Gun Control Crap

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

ty 1So…we begin a whole new year with the same old crap.

Barack Hussein Obama is once again, hell bent on gun control and he, once again, intends to act unilaterally with his pen and his phone.

What he’s doing today is meeting with Loretta Lynch, also known as Eric Holder in drag, to discuss his options none of which, one can safely assume, involves a sun-free zone as a repository for said pen and/or phone.

One of the things he wants to do so very badly that he’s willing to forego Constitutionality, is to dictate, as dictators are want to do, that occasional sellers of firearms must get licensed and do background checks…this…as a way to prevent mass shootings of course.

Naturally, Obama admits to having hatched this half-assed, unconstitutional brain-fart after some idiot, Christopher Harper-Mercer, snapped and went off the deep end, murdering nine people at Umpqua College in Roseburg, Oregon last year.

Before I continue, a little background on the murderous idiot…

Low-Info Voters vs High 2016 Expectations…Part 2 of 2

By: Diane Sori / The Patriot Factor / Right Side Patriots on http://www.americanpbn.com/

Low-information voters…the bane of us all as my Right Side Patriots partner and friend Craig Andresen pointed out in Part One of our two-part series ‘Low-Info Voters vs High 2016 Expectations.’  A brief recap for those who still do not see themselves for what they are…as in the aforementioned low-information voters…folks whose vote is cast either out of misdirected anger that their candidate of choice did not get the nomination; folks who cast their vote based upon media-generated misinformation about the candidate who did; folks who vote solely based upon where a candidate stands on the social issues, which by the way belong on the state not federal level; folks who think that Jesus is on the ballot never mind that He has never nor will ever be; or those folks who don’t vote at all simply because they are just too lazy to get to the polls. And this last group of low-information voters will be the most vocal group of complainers when, just like in 2012, things go horribly wrong.

But possibly the worst of all low-information voters are those who vote third party…misguided sorts who use the excuse that they’re voting their ‘conscious’…never mind that it’s a ‘conscious’ wasted on a fringe candidate who has absolutely no chance of winning anything, but then again they know that. And they also know the reality that most third party candidates are nothing more than avowed anarchists claiming to be ‘warriors for God’ or simple ‘facebook’ candidates who think if they can only get a million ‘likes’ on facebook it will propel them to the White House…in other words low-information candidates custom made for low-information voters.

Low-Info Voters vs High 2016 Expectations Part 1

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

li 1As we draw closer and closer to the first primary elections of 2016, now just a month away, there are some things which must be said. Things that will rile some, anger some and distress some who purport to be on our side of this election matter.

I really don’t care if I offend them as being politically correct has never been in my wheelhouse. I don’t pander…not even to those who are either on our side or to those who pretend to be on our side.

I’m talking about low information voters.

There are far, far too many who claim Conservatism as their political ideology who are being duped, led like sheep to a slaughter and it’s high time somebody said something.

They are being led by trolls…by plants whose goal it is to disrupt and destroy any chance of a Republican victory in 2016 and their intention is clear to see…they are trying to split the vote and in desperation, since their real agenda I suspect, lies with the liberals, they are expediting their wave of nonsense before the first primary votes have been cast.
