Unless We Get it Right…There Will be More Orlandos

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

Before the dust had settled, and while Orlando’s survivors were still in operating lan 1rooms…before the bodies had been removed or identified from the Pulse nightclub…Obama ran to the nearest microphone to issue his warped and perverse statements.

Obama spewed the following bits of crap from his pie hole…

He said it was too early to know the “precise motivation” of the shooter.  “We have no definitive assessment on the motivation.”

And…

That it was really our fault, because we haven’t put in place enough gun control laws to have stopped what happened in Orlando. Obama said, of what had transpired in Orlando that it was, “a further reminder of how easy it is for someone to get their hands on a weapon that lets them shoot people in a school, or a house of worship, or a movie theater, or a nightclub.”

And then he followed that up with this, regarding the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community and the national attitude toward them…

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…

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…

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?

Obamacare’s Planned Failure Almost Complete

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

oc 1While everybody remains laser-focused on the 2016 candidates, one of the major issues of this election is, by and large, going unnoticed or drastically under reported…Obamacare.

Last week, Mandy Cohen, a senior official in the Obama regime’s Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, stonewalled a congressional committee regarding the future of Obamacare’s 11 remaining co-ops but she did admit one thing…

That those 11 of the original 23 co-ops are in big trouble financially.

How deep is the hole in which they currently find themselves?

Deep. Very, VERY deep.

In fact, 8 of the 11 could well go under by the end of this year and each of those 8 are now facing either “federal enhanced oversight,” or are currently operating under a “federal “corrective action plan.”

But there’s more…plenty more…

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.

If They Team Up…It’ll be a Two Man Race

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

As the battle between Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz heats up…amid the battle between the rc 1both of them and Donald Trump with Rubio’s side battle against Jeb Bush thrown in just for kicks…I have a suggestion and a little advice for both Cruz and Rubio.

Before I get to that, let’s take a little stock in both these candidates first and examine exactly what they’re sparring over.

Illegal aliens…immigration reform, amnesty, pathways and anything else associated with that issue. I don’t care what you want to call it but I’ll just shorten it down to IR (immigration reform) and proceed from there.

Let’s just get a few things straight here.

Neither Cruz nor Rubio wants any sort of blanket amnesty for illegal aliens. Neither of them. They both agree that we need to secure our border before anything ales is done. Both candidates agree that we must increase border patrols by increasing the number of border agents. Both men agree that we must engage the laws we currently have on the books and use those laws to the letter of those laws.

Both Cruz and Rubio, or Rubio and Cruz depending on which side of the fence you’re leaning against, believe that anyone who has entered our country illegally, or illegally over-stayed a visa and then committed a crime…must be deported.

There’s more…

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.

Oh, The Hypocrisy of it All

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

According to Donald Trump, “I could stand in the middle of 5th avenue and shoot people ancou 1d I wouldn’t lose voters.”

Is he the only one who could do such a thing and not lose any of his support?

No.

Any penny-ante, tin-pot dictator in any 3rd world, one horse rogue nation could do it. Lil Kim in North Korea could do it. There was a time when Saddam and Gaddafi could have done it. Lenin and Stalin and Hitler did do it.

Forget 3rd world, one horse rogue nations…hell, Obama could get away with it just to name another dictator and that is exactly what’s wrong in this country. Electing a president has become a side show rather than a concerted effort to choose who would actually be the best for the job.

After Trump made his latest, ‘out of touch with reality’ statement on Saturday afternoon…his Trump-drunk followers started making excuses…”it was taken out of context,” and “he didn’t mean anything by it.” “Lighten up, he’s joking.”

Bullcrap…

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…
