Wind Farms in the Sandhills? Oh, No You Don’t!!

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots

As you Patriot readers of The National Patriot well know, I deal with the political landscape ls 1of national and international news but today, I’d like to take a departure from those issues of the day to let you all know about an issue that is not getting any national or international coverage.

I have always said that if you want to have an effect on national politics, the place to start is in your own corner of the world so in that light, I want to let you all in on what this Patriot has been up to on a local level.

In order to do that, I must first remove the “political” from the landscape and provide you with a bit of background on our actual landscape here in north central Nebraska.

To be specific…we live in the Nebraska Sandhills.

And what exactly are the Nebraska Sandhills, for those who have never heard of them before? Well…I’m glad you asked…

Trump and Hillary…One and the Same

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

For the better part of the last 10 months, Donald Trump’s blind followers have been vile in per 1their comments directed at any candidate who dared to challenge their presumptive dictator and equally as vile toward anyone who dared to support any other candidate than Trump.

Trump has called Carly Fiorina ugly, called Ted Cruz’s wife, Heidi, ugly and unbalanced, has compared Ben Carson to a child molester, Demeaned Marco Rubio, Called Ted Cruz a liar, insinuated that Cruz’s father was involved in the JFK assassination, had false stories planted that Cruz himself was having 5 affairs, demeaned Jeb Bush, blamed 9-11 on George Bush, incited riots, encouraged his followers to commit violence while offering to pay their legal fees for doing so, mocked Scott Walker for NOT raising taxes and accused Ted Cruz of being the Zodiac killer.

Naturally, Trump’s blind followers picked up every bit of this rubbish and immediately spread it all over social media.

Now, as Trump closes in on the nomination…his blind followers are blaming those whom they so vilely attacked for the past 10 months for splitting the party. It’s OUR fault, according to the Trumpers, that the party is now split six ways from Sunday. WE’RE to blame…or so THEY say.

Really?

Trumpenomics – A Disaster in the Making

When it comes to trade, and trade deals, Trump’s low-information following is all about en 1their candidate’s plans. They love his tough talk and his bloviations regarding China and Mexico…about how he intends to “make America great again,” by imposing stiff, 45% tariffs on our trade partners if they don’t straighten out and let us win.

It sure sounds good, unless of course, one looks into the details and has a shred of common sense about them.

What Trump is proposing is economic nationalism. America first and to hell with everybody else. If Mexico and China don’t do exactly what Trump and his low-information followers want, Trump…should he become the president, will stick it to them but good with 45% taxes on any products that either country tries to send to the United States.

But that’s not all…

Trump has also made it quite clear that he would also slam high taxes on American companies that have already located in foreign countries or those who are thinking about doing so thus intimidating them into NOT relocating, or making doing business FROM a foreign country so pricey that they will be FORCED to return home to America.

As I said…sounds good to the low-information crowd but…

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…

Trump – Clinging to Liberalism Like a Dingleberry

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

ass 1With Thursday night’s debate in Houston Texas, Donald Trump made one thing absolutely crystal clear…that he’s a thin-skinned, inflamed egress on the southbound end of a northbound baboon.

Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio seemed to have taken the advice I set forth earlier in the week, and for the most part, put their petty differences with one another aside and went after Donald Trump to exposed him as the liberal/progressive agenda backing anything but a Conservative candidate that he is.

Throughout the entire debate, Trump steadfastly refuse to provide a single direct answer to a myriad of direct questions and once again, failed to provide a single element of substance to support any single campaign promise he’s made.

Not only that, but mister anti-illegal alien was finally outed, for the world to see, as having hired illegal aliens during the building of Trump Tower and for having had been fined a million dollars by a court for doing so.

The TRUTH About Socks, Underwear and Socialism

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

I would like to take a little time to address liberals. Specifically those liberals who are drooling over Bernie Sanders.ber 1

You know who you are.

You are the ones who pee yourselves every time Grumpy mentions free crap. He’s going to give you this for free, that for free, other things for free, EVERYTHING for free. Free healthcare. Free college tuition.

Free childcare…which goes along nicely with his proposals to expand the welfare system by which women can have as many babies as they want, by as many different men as they can roll around with and then have all their child care paid for…for FREE and if those welfare moms want to send their little welfare rug rats off to pre-school…

WELL THAT’S GONNA BE FREE TOO!!!

Yep…a vote for Bernie is a vote for FREE crap for the rest of your life and, if you’re a good little socialist…you’ll get a free pony.

Ol’ Bernie sure is the generous sort, isn’t he?

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.

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…

Trump – All Sound Bite and No Substance

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

oht 1There can be no two people happier about Donald Trump’s empty rhetoric this week than Obama and Hillary Clinton and while Trump continues to grin like the cat that swallowed the media canary, people who should care about real issues are being bamboozled.

For once, Obama doesn’t even have to concoct a distraction…Trump is handling that for him.

Was Trump right to state that we should put a temporary ban on Muslim immigration and employ profiling to minimize future jihadis entering our nation?

Yes, but he missed the key reason why…that being that we are engaged in a war against an ideology and not a religion as Islam is the former and not the latter but Trump has not explained himself and why should he? His Trumpers are eating it up and the media is talking about nothing else.

There’s a reason for that and I suspect Trump has been paying a staff to do nothing but look at social media to discern what Conservatives are calling for. Notice how Trump has yet to put forth an original idea. He takes whatever is the hot-button topic of the week and puffs himself up over it spewing rhetoric with no substance behind it.

Build a wall…make Mexico pay for it.

How?

Baltimore and Their Crap-Happy Looters

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots on cprworldwidemedia.net

str 1Well, it’s about damn time.

With irrefutable evidence staring them in the face…maybe black America is starting to wake the hell up.

After all, statistics show that in 2013, there were 2491 black people murdered in the United States and that 2.245 OF those murders were at the hands of other BLACK people and while that stat simply shows murders…here’s something a little more poignant…in 2014…cops killed 414 white people but only 233 BLACK people and yet BLACK people, who comprise just 13% of the U.S. population, are responsible for 42% of all cop killings.

Yesterday, the streets of cities across our nation FILLED with protest marches…BLACK people…PROTESTING black on black violence.

In Atlanta…New York…Detroit…Dallas…Los Angeles…from sea to shining sea…BLACK people took a stand…a long awaited stand…a much NEEDED stand against black perpetrated violence.

Jesse was on the streets of Chicago leading the protests…Al was in Atlanta leading the way and Barack, from a golf course somewhere added HIS voice to the rising chorus of black leaders decrying black violence.

REALLY???
