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…

Regarding Islam…It’s Time for the Broad Brush

By Craig Andresen – The National Patriot and Right Side Patriots

brush 1According to Hillary Clinton, whose closest aide…Huma Abedin…is directly linked to the Muslim Sisterhood… “We are at war with violent extremism. I don’t think we’re at war with Islam. I don’t think we’re at war with all Muslims. I think we’re at war with jihadists.”

“I think that you can talk about Islamists, who clearly are also jihadists, but I think it’s not particularly helpful, to make the case that Senator Sanders was just making, that I agree with, that we’ve got to reach out to Muslim countries. we’ve got to have them be part of our coalition. if they hear people running for president who basically shortcut it to say we are somehow against Islam, that was one of the real contributions, despite all the other problems, that George W. Bush made after 9/11, when he basically said, after going to a mosque in Washington, we are not at war with Islam or Muslims. We are at war with violent extremism. We are at war with people who use their religion for purposes of power and oppression. And, yes, we are at war with those people, but I don’t want us to be painting with too broad a brush.”

At no time in her comments during last weekend’s democrat debate, less than 24 hours after the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris did Hillary Clinton ever utter the phrase “Islamic terrorism.”

According to Obama, last Friday morning just 12 hours before the Islamic terrorist attacks in Paris…who once called ISIS the “junior varsity” and another time stated that, “ISIS is not Islamic,”…

SCREW the (Environ)Mental Cases – BUILD the PIPELINE

The only real obstruction to the Keystone XL pipeline now, much to the dismay of those on work release from (environ)mental asylums, is the Dictator, Obama.

Last Friday, not the 1st or the 2nd, not the 3rd or the 4th environmental impact study regarding that pipeline but, the 5th, and the one that came directly from Obama’s State (of Insanity) Department was released and, just like the previous 4, this one states that there is no environmental reason for NOT  building the 1,179 mile pipeline from Canada to Texas.

A couple of years ago, the greeny weenies complained that the pipeline would cross Nebraska’s Sandhills region and the aquifer but, the Cornhusker state’s Governor, Dave Heineman, ordered a study, found an alternative route avoiding both sensitive areas and, that route was accepted by Canada.

Obama  had pandered to the unions who stand to make bank off the building of the Keystone XL pipeline by delaying parts of Obamacare, just for them.

The problem is, he’s also been pandering to the (environ)mental patients by not signing off on the pipeline.

With Friday’s report, coming from his own administration, Obama now finds himself faced with yet another conundrum.

Does he benefit the United States or China?

Here are the choices…

Doin’ the Dictator Limbo

We have been told that elections have consequences.

Indeed they do.

Therefore, they also carry unintended consequences.

Yesterday such an unintended consequence reared it’s conservative head in the state of Virginia.

There, where the state senate was all tied up…20 conservatives – 20 liberals…One senator ducked out for a political moment.

Senator Harry Marsh, giddy at the prospect of another 4 years of the Dictator’s rule, dashed off to DC to sing, dance, spike the football and presumably, imbibe in beverages of an adult nature at the Dictator’s coronation.

Party on Senator.

In his gleeful absence, Virginia conservatives quickly put forth and passed, redistricting.

Based on the consequences of the 2012 election, the new districts will give the Virginia Senate a 26 – 14 majority of CONSERVATIVES.

There will be a great deal of socialists with their collectivism panties in a wad over this but, like the guy who jumps from the stands to streak across the field of play before getting blasted from his feet by an athlete who packs the punch of a freight train, they should have seen this coming.

EPA Spying on Pooping Cows…Let’s Raise a Stink

Lately, it has come to light that the government, specifically the EPA, is so concerned about cow poop that they are using drones to sniff it out in the skies of the Midwest…Nebraska, Iowa and Kansas.

Many cattle ranchers in the region have recently spotted the drones over their land and are reasonably upset by the practice. To answer a formal letter from U.S. Senator from Nebraska, Mike Johanns, on the subject. the EPA fired of the following message:

“Courts, including the Supreme Court, have found similar types of flights to be legal (for example to take aerial photographs of a chemical manufacturing facility) and EPA would use such flights in appropriate instances to protect people and the environment from violations of the Clean Water Act.”

The EPA is currently trying to hide behind Article 1 Section 8 of the Constitution on this matter.

The Palin Effect Felt in Nebraska

Reports of the death of the Tea Party have been greatly exaggerated.

One can easily suspect 3 things.

1)      Nobody who ascribes to the Tea Party values ever thought they were dead.

2)      Liberals knew the Tea Party wasn’t dead but they were hoping beyond hope against another shellacking in November.

3)      The Republican establishment is failing to relegate the Tea Party to the sidelines.

Proof of these things comes first in the results from Indiana where long time establishment mainstay, Sen. Lugar, lost his bid for another term and now, from Nebraska.

On the Husker Nation’s home turf, 2 establishment choices had been considered the odds on favorites for Ben Nelson’s soon to be abandoned Senate seat. Nelson’s Cornhusker Kickback doomed his career as Obamacare relied on bribes to secure votes.

Nebraska, a red state, was all but set to nominate either Don Stenberg of Jon Bruning to run against former Nebraska Governor and Senator Bob Kerry.
