The Rain Forest, the Recount and Reality

By Craig Andresen – Right Side Patriots on American Political Radio

It seems hard to believe, in this day and age, that there are places where people live that are so remote, so isolated that those people have never had contact with the outside yano-1world.

But such is exactly the case with a small band, about 100 people, who live in a village in Brazilian Amazon, near the border with Venezuela.

They are the Yanomami…an indigenous people to the region.

These are people who have never seen a telephone, much less heard of a cell phone. They have never seen a television and therefore, have never heard of the Kardashians.

Lucky for them.

The Yano have never eaten food from a can. Never seen sliced bread. Have no idea what a car is. Never seen a computer, locked a door, opened a window or went to a store.

The Yano have spent their entire lives, over thousands of years, cut off from the rest of the world in 100% total isolation.

And yet…

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…

NOT “The People’s Choice”

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

To those who continue to harp about Donald Trump being “the people’s choitf 1ce,” I’m not really sure they possess a clear understanding of what that means.

They say it because Trump is the presumptive nominee but there is much more to the facts than there is to the myth That trump is ‘the people’s choice.

Oh, sure, we all hear the crowing that Trump received more primary votes than any other candidate in history but that’s a lot like saying that the unemployment rate is 4.5% and believing it. Trump got more votes…because there are more people of voting age but the reality of it is that Trump got 42% of the primary votes…which include those liberals who crossed the aisle to vote for HIM…before strolling BACK to the left to vote for Hillary.

That also plays into the whole myth that Trump is “the people’s choice,” because if 42% of Republican voters voted FOR Trump…that means that 58% of Republican voters did NOT vote for Trump and as that is a double digit difference…not in Trump’s favor…he can’t possibly be “the people’s choice.”

Then there are Donald Trump’s favorability ratings…

Disgusting Liar Trump Screwed Our Vets

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

Finally.VETS 1

Donald J. Trump has finally donated ALL the money he raised for Veterans, from his debate-ditching fund raiser in Iowa, TO the 27 different Veterans organizations he had named.

That’s correct…Trump has now donated every last penny of it to our great Veterans.

All $800,000.00 of it. Lock, stock and…

Wait. What?

But Trump said he raised $6 MILLION dollars for those Veterans organizations. He told the Veterans that he raised $6 million dollars. He told ALL of us that he raised $6 million dollars.

Guess what folks…Donald Trump…lied.

The statement from Trump was that his fund raiser brought in $5 million dollars and that he, himself, had posted an additional $1 million to the pot to bring the total to a whopping $6 million dollars that would be divided up between 27 various Veterans organizations.

What a magnanimous fellow.

But now we know the truth…

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’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…

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?

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?

New Hampshire – Lessons Learned

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

nh 1As the candidates now focus on South Carolina and Nevada in preparation for Super Tuesday, what have we learned from New Hampshire?

Plenty.

And what we have learned is far more than just who won, who lost and who placed where. There is a whole lot more to the lessons of New Hampshire than that and to fully understand the landscape of the race for the White House, we need to do a dissection of what transpired in New Hampshire.

Trump won. We all pretty much knew that before the first votes were cast at midnight Tuesday morning. It came as no surprise even to those of us who are nauseated by Trump and his total lack of substance or any viable, articulated plan.

Bernie Sanders, the avowed socialist came in first on the liberal/socialist side of the primary and that too was a foregone conclusion as he was a light year ahead of Hillary in New Hampshire throughout the run up to Tuesday’s primary.
