The Roberts Trap is Sprung

By:  Bill Dunne
One of the most overlooked aspects of the year just ended is the vindication of Chief Justice John Roberts -- a vindication that showed up as the national catastrophe known as ObamaCare got rolling.  Roberts may have also doomed Hillary Clinton's chance to live in the White House again... click here to read whole editorial


The Pathetic Meltdown of Democrats in a Post

Election Republican Win




By:  David Deschesne

Editor/Publisher, Fort Fairfield Journal

December 7, 2016



   When the Communist infiltrator, Barack Hussein-Obama was awarded two consecutive presidential elections by the globalists, conservatives in the U.S. were dismayed, but they resigned themselves to the solitude of slowly and quietly buying as many guns and boxes of ammo as they could, strove to become more self-sufficient and made plans to provide for their families when the Socialist and Communist policies of the Democrat party ultimately destroys what’s left of the economic system in the United States.

   Contrast that behavior with the whining, cry-baby, simpering, and at times violent and vitriolic nature of those in the Democrat party. 

   After the election of a Republican to the White House and the Republicans now possessing the majority in both the House and Senate of the U.S. Congress, many Democrats today simply refuse to admit it’s their failed policies the American voters were voting against—policies that when tried in every other country in the history of the world ended up having to be enforced by an aggressive, totalitarian police state.

   To be fair, the Republicans have also been working valiantly to adopt those same failed socialist policies for the past several decades (think of Susan Collins, here), but have been held in check by a mostly conservative voting base.

   When looking out across the societal landscape where the Democrats make up a majority of the population, behavior is observed that makes one wonder how we made it this far with this type of people both electing our leaders, and themselves at times being elected.

   The following are a few examples of how the entitlement society handles defeat.  You will notice that rather than reflect on their party’s failed policies, adoption of the failed economic system of socialism and the wreckage that embracing sexually deviant behavior has caused, they instead behave like juveniles suffering from arrested development.  They have been led to believe their political party and politically correct ideology is the way to prosperity without objectively looking at past historical examples to see how those policies have always led to the destruction of a country. 


U.S. Colleges and Universities

Raising a Generation of Babies


After the election of Donald Trump as U.S. President:


   -  A University of Michigan psychology professor delayed an exam by a week and wished students good fortune during this “tumultuous time.” Meanwhile, students came into the office of Trey Boynton, the director of multi-ethnic student affairs, where they were given coloring books and Play-Doh. The traumatized students were encouraged to search for comfort in the arts and crafts provided.

  -  Some Columbia University professors postponed midterms to allow their coddled students a time of bereavement for their party’s loss.

  -  A University of Connecticut professor excused students from attending class after the election.

   - Cornell University students held a “cry-in” with students drinking hot chocolate and using tissues handed out by school staff.

  - At Loyola University and Byrn Mawr College students demanded the cancelling of classes, citing exhaustion, depression, and safety concerns.  Some Loyola students made a petition to have a day off, ending their request with, “The only cure to an election hangover is drinking a cold beer in bed… all day.”

  - The University of Kansas announced that it would regularly bring in therapy dogs to campus.

  - Tufts University had arts and crafts on hand to help their students cope with Hillary Clinton’s loss.

  -  Alan Peel, an astronomy lecturer at the University of Maryland canceled a test scheduled for Wednesday morning, the day after elections, writing to students that he worried some of their performances may be affected by “the monumental effort necessary to accept what must be a personally threatening election result.”

  - When a teacher at the University of Southern California Rossier School of Education told his 11 doctoral students that class was optional the next day, six said they were not coming. [Remember, a doctoral student is one working  for his Ph. D., a Philosophy Doctorate, as opposed to my P.h.D., Potato House Degree, which is a degree in hard work and common sense.  Perhaps this is what our college and university students should be working towards!]

  - An economics professor at Yale University made his midterm exam “optional” in response to “many heartfelt notes from students who are in shock over the election returns

  These students are supposed to be the next generation entrusted to the care and maintenance of the infrastructure of our society.  I’m afraid they are going to be woefully unprepared for the task.

   The behavior of these students is both pathetic and predictable given they have been brought up sheltered from the realities of the world and how miserable their party’s ideology ultimately makes people feel.   “College campuses have created safe spaces to wall students off from the mildest forms of disagreement,” wrote Robby Soave in an article posted at  “Too many of them simply had no idea that great numbers of Americans despised their progressive agenda and were eager to strike a blow against political correctness.  But campus progressives have willfully pushed race-based and identity-group-based classifications: calling for segregated safe spaces and programs for students of color, LGBTQ students, Native American students, Latinos, and so on. At the same time, they have assailed white privilege and white fragility, treating white people like the enemy. In electing Trump, whites may have lived up to their expectations, but I can't help but wonder whether that was a foreseeable consequence of the left's campaign to demonize them.”

   “Nothing screams entitlement more than college students who have the ability to disrupt daily functions because they did not get their way,” wrote Meko Haze at The Daily Haze. “That is exactly what is happening on college campuses across the country.  College is supposed to be the last stop for young adults before they enter the real world to help society as a whole. What values are we instilling in the future leaders of America when we tell them it is okay to revert to being a child because you do not like something?  The fact of the matter is that the world is not a nice place. All of us have days where we would rather hit up a coloring book and cry instead of going to work, but those who have existed in the real world know that is not an option.”


Tantrum-Throwing Three

Year-Olds in Adult Bodies


   Cheer up, it gets worse.  While the mindless and pathetic behavior of college students isn’t actually doing any harm to society (yet), there are some in the Democrat party who have adopted the tactics of radical communist renegades, Saul Alinsky and Ernesto “Che” Guevara as they attempt to beat, smash, burn and steal to get their way—typical of all Communist aggressors throughout history.  Some of the more notable examples of this violent behavior is:

- The Akron Fire Department says that a 69-year-old man set himself on fire Saturday after yelling about the election results in a local coffee shop. The department says the man, who was dressed in a U.S. Marine Corps uniform, walked into Angel Falls Coffee on South Highland Ave. yelling about the recent protests over the election results. He then left the coffee shop, grabbed a can of gasoline from his car and set himself on fire. A witness in a nearby business ran out and extinguished the flames.

-The day following the election, a teenage Trump supporter was knocked to the ground and suffered a head injury after a confrontation at an anti-Trump protest in Rockville, Maryland. The boy was a high-school sophomore wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat.  Apparently Democrats do not want America to be great, ever again.

- In Meriden, Connecticut, two men attacked a man who was waving an American flag and holding a Trump sign. The two attackers got out of their car and began punching and kicking the man, who was standing on a traffic island. A nearby police officer intervened to stop the attack.

- 21-year-old Cameron Massie was attacked outside a Boston bar because he supported Trump. A Democrat supporter followed him out of the bar and punched him in the back of the head and the face.  The arm of his jacket was almost torn off.

- A week after the election, a man was attacked by two other men on a New York City subway car because he was wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat. Corey Cataldo, 24, from the Bronx said one of the men saw his hat and asked if he was a Trump supporter. After Cataldo said yes, the man attempted to choke him.

- A teenage girl in California, Jade Armenio, suffered a brutal beatdown allegedly because she supported Trump. Another girl threw her to the ground, punching and kicking her.  The attack was a result of Armenio responding to a social media thread that started with a post supporting Trump.

- A man in Missoula, Montana, was assaulted outside a bar when a group of men sitting at a table asked him if he supported Trump.  He said he did.  After he left the bar to look for his friend, the men surrounded him. One of the men held him by his shoulders while another hit him in the genitals. Then a powerful hit to the back of his head knocked him out.

- A Chicago man got pummeled by a group of people following a car crash and shouting match during which the victim admitted he had voted for Trump. A video showed several people brutally beating the victim, David Wilcox, while onlookers shouted, “You voted Trump!”

- In key electoral swing states, some electors for Donald Trump are reporting receiving death threats from Democrat operatives if they don't arbitrarily switch their vote from Trump to Hillary Clinton when the electoral college meets to actually elect the President later this month.

- Jenny Poore, a Lynchburg, Virginia school-board member recently resigned that position due to public backlash over her vile Facebook comments after she used that social media site to launch a four-letter word, foul-mouthed tirade against Donald Trump and his supporters.   Ms. Poore represents the level of degradation of the typical Democrat's mind as it succumbs to the failed ideologies of socialism and sexual anarchy.

- The owner of an Internet marketing company in Albuquerque, New Mexico is refusing to do business with Donald Trump voters due to their support for a “racist, sexist, fascist”.  In a blog post, 1st in SEO’s Matthew Blanchfield writes that the company “will no longer do business with any person that is a registered Republican or supports Donald Trump. If you are a Republican, voted for Donald Trump or support Donald Trump, in any manner, you are not welcome at 1st In SEO and we ask you to leave our firm.”

   The Democrat party has a long history of wreckage and carnage as it has slowly and systematically been taken over by radical Communists and violent Socialists. 

   The Democrat party was the party that fought to keep black people as slaves in the 1860s; gave control of our money system away to a private international banking cabal in 1913; created what became a crushing and incomprehensible federal income tax in 1916; wrecked the economy with government price controls and make-work programs in 1933; removed gold as a backing of U.S. currency in 1933; created the social, con-artist, ponzi scheme of Social Security to rip off the U.S. taxpayers in 1935; removed silver as a backing to U.S. currency in 1963; created a whole new class of slaves via the welfare system spawned by the 1960’s “Great Society;” and adopted Hitler’s 1932 gun control act here in the U.S. in 1968.  The Democrat leadership in many states also campaigned vigorously against giving black people the same civil rights as whites throughout the 1950’s and 60’s.  Since they lost that battle, they have used the welfare and food stamp programs to entice blacks and many whites into becoming permanent members of the underclass in society in order break up their families and keep them down, prohibiting them from ever achieving any meaningful goals in life. Thus, slavery, but cleverly repackaged. The Democrats also created the health insurance boondoggle called Obamacare that has achieved its covert goals of increasing insurance premiums and reducing the quality of care of all health care recipients under the guise of making health insurance more “affordable.”  Affordable for whom?  The insurance companies?

    The Democrat party is currently spearheading efforts to normalize sexually deviant behavior such as transgenderism and pedophilia.  Next to come will of course be bestiality (sex with animals) and necrophilia (sex with dead people) and when those disgusting sex acts do become normalized, it will be at the behest of the Democrat party. 

   “The left, above all else, craves power and that power is based – to be perfectly honest – on creating and cultivating an angry, insecure, dependent population to support the leftist elite,” said author and managing editor at World Net Daily, David Kupelian.  “They have succeeded at this for a couple generations now, especially through our absurdly leftist colleges and universities, where we’re witnessing almost an entire generation unable to deal with reality – with trials and tribulations, with loss and disappointment, with people who disagree or hold ‘offensive’ views. Both liberal and conservative social scientists have concluded that colleges today are literally ‘teaching students to think pathologically.’”
