A little advice for Democrats

Democrats unite! All that may come from this Trump hating refrain would be cheers from your Berniecrat converts whom missed out on a third term, contempt from those whom are the middle-class and content in the change of governance, and the alienation of those whom crossed-over and voted — voters you could win back except for the miss-information and the hate that spew from your lips.

With the hole that Democrats have buried themselves in they must start first by digging out. They have a long way to go, not to even mention their lacking status in the House, the Senate, and their minority stake in state governorships.

If I were a Democrat, I’d be looking for alternative ideas, not “alternative facts.”

Sanctuary nonsense

Well the latest nonsense to come from Sacramento is "Sanctuary State." Only the people of la la land and Hollywood can seriously consider nonsense such as this.

I think it is time for the Inland counties to consider splitting off from the liberals coast freaks and urban snowflakes. We could, at the minimum, start talks with Arizona and Nevada to be annexed by them. I am personally thinking that we should look to become the 51st state. Supposedly it requires a vote of the majority of the populace to approve the split.

Ignore them! Establish borders and start behaving like a state. Demand the right to be represented by people we chose, not the liberals.

It will be rough for awhile until we have run out the meth heads and the generational welfare recipients. Then we might be able to start building industry and get the farming back on track.

If what was left of California was to secede from the union, we would impose serious tariffs on any goods they export and severe travel restriction on the American hating celebrities and politicians. We really don't need them. Immigration without assimilation is invasion!

America for all people that want to be Americans!

Paid protesters

UC Berkeley. Well, that event was just precious. The tears have subsided and the super-rich backed and funded paid-protesters are out in force. Shipped in buses, briefed like guerrilla soldiers, masked and hooded, and a paycheck at the end of it all just as they were during the Trump rallies. Mainstream media is smiling broadly offscreen.

Had this been the Cliven Bundy boys picketing at a backwoods community college, heads would have rolled, attacks dogs popped off the leashes, feds with assault rifles, racism, bigotry, domestic terrorists, and such. Clowns, costumes, signs, hills of trash left behind, even Muslim prayer chants over a bullhorn. Starbucks ... a smoldering ruin. The leftists won't be gathering in comfy chairs to regale in the modern Marxist legend of Obama and his triumphs over the greed and bigotry of "Joe Plumber."

No praises sung of the defeat of the Christian identity of the nation amidst the overpowering aroma of strong European coffee products (they make a really mean black coffee). No, no. The war has just begun. I hope they had their Wheaties.

Poor examples for students

Re: "High Desert school districts respond to Trump's immigration orders," Daily Press, 2/4/17 ...

Congratulations! You just showed students that they don't have to obey the orders from the president, the highest authority in the land.

Wonderful precedent you just set. I just wonder if you think this disobedience to authority will just stop where you want it to stop. If you disobey the greater, how do you expect your students not to disobey the lesser...YOU?

You claim, "We do not just welcome diversity. We celebrate it." That is, unless, someone disagrees with you. Then you just disobey it.

Then the article says, President Trump's Executive Order targets "Muslims and refugees." Seriously? I see that lying and dishonesty are accepted tools that you use to deceive an uneducated and gullible populous. Maybe you would care to explain to us how Muslims and refugees from outside those seven identified (by Obama) countries are currently experiencing no problems with entry into the U.S.? Can't explain that one, huh?

The next Middle Eastern terrorist attack, on U.S. soil, I will place squarely in your laps and those who teach our children if you don't like a order from someone in authority you can just disobey it.

As I've stated on more than a few occasions...

Be careful what you wish for. You may get it.

Fraudulent NOAA 'study'

In 2014, President Obama gave Dr. John Bates a gold medal for his work at NOAA.

The next year, in June 2015, the NOAA published a study (without Dr. Bates' participation or agreement), in the journal Science, to help negotiating nations at the Climate Summit in Paris to enact economic measures to reduce warming, a draconian far-reaching scheme to reduce energy production in America (and other nations).

Dr. Bates retired, after 40 years with NOAA, and is now saying the published study was based on “misleading, unverified data.” In other words, the climate change laws and regulations are based on a complete fraud.

Here are choice quotes from David Rose's exclusive Daily Mail article that exposes the far-reaching deception:

"The Mail on Sunday reveals astonishing evidence that the organisation that is the world's leading source of climate data rushed to publish a landmark paper that exaggerated global warming and was timed to influence the historic Paris Agreement on climate change.

"A high-level whistleblower has told this newspaper that America's National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) breached its own rules on scientific integrity when it published the sensational but flawed [fraudulent] report, aimed at making the maximum possible impact on world leaders including Barack Obama and David Cameron at the UN climate conference in Paris in 2015."

Press conference

Note to Maxine Waters. Russia is in Crimea, not Korea. Note to Nancy Pelosi. Donald Trump is the president, not George Bush. Note to Democrats. These are your leaders Note to toy stores nationwide. Stock up on Play-Doh.

This may last a while

A writer says, "Wow! Thirteen days since our 45th President was inaugurated —and the protestors (read: rioters) are still in the streets crying foul."

Wow? Hasn't he ever heard of the Tea Party? They went longer than 13 days, didn't they?
