I’ll Stand With the Constitutional Conservative

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

A few days ago, I was told, in no uncertain terms by one of Donald Trump’s blind followers to, cru 1take my support for Cruz and “stick it!”

She failed to say where but she was clear in that she simply didn’t want to read the truth about Trump, and in that respect, she is not alone as Trump’s followers just don’t seem to be capable of handling the truth.

I have always said that if one really wants to know what liberals are up to, just look at what they accuse Conservatives of doing. If there is a liberal handbook, I suggest that blaming conservatives for exactly what the liberal is doing is on page one.

Before the final tally from Wisconsin was in, but after it was clear that Ted Cruz would post a double digit victory there, Donald Trump issued another signature tantrum in which he accused Cruz of a crime directly related to this election.

Trump accused Cruz of coordinating directly with his Super Pacs which is in direct violation of election law and he did so without providing any details, without naming any witnesses and without even the slightest shred of evidence and while many regard such an allegation as little more than sour grapes, the incessant whining of one who acts like a 2 year old who didn’t get his way…I suggest there is much more to it than that.

Trump Substitutes Fantasy for Substance

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

While Donald Trump has said that, “I’m capable of changing to anything I want to non 1change to,” is has become obvious that what he meant was that he’s able to pander to whoever he wants to but he has shown, all too often, that he has no intention at all of changing.

Over the past two weeks, Trump has launched frivolous and baseless attacks against Heidi Cruz, the baseless National Enquirer rubbish smelled of his hair gel and Mexican made clothing line,  issued multiple statements regarding his multiple positions on abortion, had a disastrous, nationally televised town hall appearance in which he contradicted himself over and over again while naming education and healthcare as two of the three primary functions of government and had his Chinese made campaign hat handed to him by Wisconsin talk radio host Charlie Sykes.

But change?

No, Donald Trump hasn’t changed one little bit and that is exactly why he got pummeled in the Wisconsin primary Tuesday night. Further evidence of Trump’s inability to change was evident  in a statement released by his campaign after Tuesday night’s utter defeat in Wisconsin…

Trump’s Liberal Agenda, Money Trail – Part 2 of 2

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Since 2011, Donald Trump has given some $358.700 to Republicans, that much is true tru 1and a figure oft cited by his blind following so as to offset any mention of Trump’s donations to liberals but it falls completely flat when put in factual perspective.

As matters of easily researched public records, Donald Trump has stood for and financially supported liberals and the liberal agenda to a point his followers would much rather not admit.

To be exact…between 1989 and 2010, Trump’s political donations were nearly evenly split between both sides of the aisle with slightly more, $314,300.00 going to the left than the $290,600 that he donated to the right but that all changed radically as Trump himself became more immersed in political aspirations of his own.

After Trump’s inglorious presidential run on the Reform ticket in 2000, Donald J. Trump and his son, Donald Jr., donated $77,200.00 to liberals compared to only $24,250.00 to Republicans during the 2006 midterm elections.

But there’s more…much more…

Have You Hugged a Terrorist Today?

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Mark Zuckerberg had this to say regarding Islamic terrorists and Islamic terrorism…hug 1

“I believe the only sustainable way to fight back against those who seek to divide us is to create a world where understanding and empathy can spread faster than hate. Where every single person in every country feels connected and cared for and loved. That’s the world we can and must build together.”

In 2014, Hillary Clinton said this on the same topic…

“This is what we call smart power. Using every possible tool and partner to advance peace and security. Leaving no one on the sidelines. Showing respect even for one’s enemies. Trying to understand, in so far as psychologically possible, empathize with their perspective and point of view. Helping to define the problems, determine the solutions. That is what we believe in the 21st century will change — change the prospects for peace.”

Last year, in 2015, Obama spewed out this line…

“Efforts to counter violent extremism will only succeed if citizens can address legitimate grievances through the democratic process and express themselves through strong civil societies.”

And it was Marie Harf, the propagandist for John Kerry’s State Department who offered up this take on Islamic terrorists…

Bugs Bunny Was Right…What a Maroon

Quote

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

As bugs bunny would say…mor 1

“What a maroon…”

The man who would be POTUS…the loon followed by blind, low-information voters…Donald J. Trump…is now bordering on displaying the collective intelligence of a sack of potatoes.

My apologies to spuds everywhere.

Given that whoever the next POTUS is, that person will be tasked with appointing at least one, if not several Supreme Court Justices and one would think…no…one would HOPE that whoever that is has, at the very least, an inkling of what the job of a Supreme Court Justice actually is.

Now we KNOW that Ted Cruz knows exactly what the duties of the SCOTUS are. After all, Cruz has argued several cases before the nation’s highest court and as a Constitutional expert, Cruz knows full well that the SCOTUS interprets the Constitution were our laws are concerned. It is the job of the SCOTUS to determine whether or not our laws meet Constitutional muster.

But moron Don?

Lacking Substance, Trump Resorts to Sleaze

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

Nearly as soon as Donald Trump announced his candidacy, with the presumptive front sle 1runner being heralded as Jeb Bush…the National Enquirer ran a hit piece aimed directly at Bush, accusing him of being involved in some drug-running thing back in the 80’s and followed it up with some nonsense regarding a supposed sex scandal between Jeb Bush and a Playboy bunny.

It was all pretty unnecessary as Bush never got his campaign off to even a slow roll but it was the Enquirer’s first foray into the 2016 race.

Then, last Fall, when it looked like there might be a growing grassroots movement behind Dr. Ben Carson, the National Enquirer ran a salacious story alleging that Carson, in the course of an operation, left a sponge in a patient’s brain.

The article went on and on making outlandish and rhetorical statements about Carson, calling him a “White House wannabe,” and accusing him of using his scalpel like “a meat cleaver,” among other things.

For his part, Carson dismissed the Enquirer telling reporters that, “It is true that we put a certain type of sponge in to pad things away and sometimes there is a reaction to that sponge and that’s what happened.” Carson also related the fact that he has performed more than 15,000 operations and after digging through every ditch they could find, the Enquirer managed to find 5 or 6 patients with an axe to grind but, according to Carson, “many of those cases never went anywhere, because the legal system said, ‘Are you kidding me?’ and threw it out.”

The facts proved Carson to be correct and the story was short-lived but it accomplished one very important thing…

Hillary’s Strawman Aided by an Inside Man

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

rats 1Remember back when Hillary Clinton spent a full day and into the night facing Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi committee last fall…most of it with a smug look of boredom on her face because she thought she was untouchable? Remember how the questioning seemed to always revert back to Hillary’s emails?

We may now have a somewhat clearer insight into that.

As I have previously posted, here in The National Patriot, the two investigations, Benghazi and the email investigations have converged. It is growing increasingly difficult to separate one from the other and things aren’t looking good for Hillary as a result.

During that Benghazi hearing, one of the key components seemed to be one Sidney Blumenthal and his emails both sent to and received from Hillary Clinton regarding Benghazi. Many people, our readers included, were somewhat and rightfully curious as to why Hillary’s emails and those of Blumenthal seemed to be of such importance to the Congressional committee investigating Benghazi.

Well…another piece of the puzzle seems to have fallen into place.

Regarding the email investigation…

Trump’s Liberal/Progressive Tactics Exposed

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

txp 1“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”

And how do these words in the Constitution’s Bill of Rights relate to presidential candidate Donald J. Trump…simply it means that Trump’s right to free speech was in no way violated by the shutting down of his recent rally in Chicago even though Trump immediately spewed out words that, “thugs shut down our First Amendment rights.”

No they did not for while thugs did behave ever so badly it was not thugs per se who shut down Trump’s rally…Trump himself shut down his own rally with his year-long barge of disparaging remarks against minorities, his vile words against his fellow candidates, and with his mocking comments regarding the ‘intelligence’ of some of his own supporters. And these words of his said time and again are words not protected by the First txp 3Amendment, as they are ‘instigating’ words deliberately said to fuel anger…to fuel hate…and are what’s legally known as ‘fighting words’…’fighting words’ that could make the person to whom they are addressed…in this case minorities…commit an act of violence. And since Trump instigated the Chicago violence by his ‘fighting words’…as per Chaplinsky v New Hampshire, 315 U.S. 568 (1942)…Trump himself must take at least some responsibility for the violence that ensued because his entire campaign was a powder keg of thuggery waiting to explode.

Q&A…Trumpers vs Reality

By Craig Andresen Right Side Patriots http://www.americanpbn.com/

craig profile 2016Over the past week or so, I have engaged many of Trump’s blind followers in conversation via social media and in person. I have tried…really tried to get a handle on their low-information adherence to Donald Trump. It hasn’t been easy, or fun, but here are the results of my efforts.

I decided to ask the low-information crowd what the attraction to Trump was all about and why they felt he was the answer to all their various issues.

Me: What is it you’re so angry about that draws you to Donald Trump?

Them: There’s too much corruption in Washington because all the politicians are bought and paid for by big corporations.

Me: And Trump can fix this?

Them: Yes.

Me: How much is Trump worth?

Them: He’s a billionaire.

Me: How did he make that much money?

Them: He’s a successful businessman.

Me: Does he hire people?
