The liberal media continue their hostile criticism of everything President Trump says and does. The latest brouhaha has been raised with the fake media outrage against Trump for his critical remarks of U.S. District Judge James Robart, the federal judge in Seattle who halted the President Donald J. Trump in East Room of White Houseenforcement of the executive order banning immigration from seven countries with terrorist ties.

It has been said that truth is the first causality of war and we have been at war with the collectivist elements for the past two hundred years. One among many demands by the delusional left is that we should have open borders and that protected borders and using a rational and legal method of choosing who can enter our country and become a citizen is un-American, heartless and evil. With fake tears in his eyes and in a trembling voice Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) tried to convince the nation that protecting our borders is indeed un-American.

What just happened in the 2016 presidential election in many ways was unprecedented and in other ways was expected by keen observers and deep thinkers. Fox News interviewed a university pollster who admitted that all the pollsters, all the political analysts and all the political pundits, were wrong. The only ones who were correct were Professor Helmut Norpoth of Stony Brook University, who was 99% certain that Trump would win, and Anonymous, who also predicted a Trump landslide.

The biggest losers on election night were in the liberal media, an adjunct of the national Democratic Party. But the far-left “progressives” who had backed Senator Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and then rationalized voting for Hillary Clinton lost big. Many conservatives in the media also look like fools.

The left-wingers who were humiliated include:

On RINOs, prevaricators and moderate Republicans

In his diatribe in the Telegraph [Sept. 21], Jack Bernard, the self-described “Republican Health Care Executive,” insists on debating me and equivocates about his supposed (moderate) conservatism. Alas, he says his published conservative treatises have all been published in other newspapers. What a shame!

Jose: Friends, another article to connect the dots, "Soros's Campaign of Global Chaos," from Realclearpolitics by Caroline Glick, August 26, 2016:

Trump — With moderate Republicans, who needs foes?

The letters in the Telegraph lambasting Trump continue [09/12/16] and that is to be expected in this polarized political season. What is not to be expected, at least by savvy political debaters, is the ease with which these letter writers inconveniently ignore the rebuttals already made in total disregard of the usual rules followed in policy debates!

Insulting voters, demonizing Trump!

Several letters, including some long ones, have been published in my local newspaper, the Macon Telegraph, demonizing Donald Trump. One letter pretending to objectivity and citing the liberal media asserted that Trump told more lies than Hillary — as if a Krystal patty was as big as a Burger King whopper or a McDonald’s Quarter Pounder! Trump may tell little tales from time to time to shock and capitalize on media publicity, even if in the negative. How else could he get through the fog and for free too!

My mother and I recently had a difference of opinion regarding Pope Francis. I said that he was naive and certainly not of the caliber of his two previous distinguished predecessors, the two towers of intellect: John Paul II, canonized as Saint John Paul the Great by his brilliant successor, Benedict XVI. She said Pope Francis knew what he was doing and by his words and action is a communist. He has brought about the friendship between President Obama and a dictator, who along with his more majestic brother, has held the Cuban people captive for over half a century.

I do not mind disagreeing with a fellow conservative when he happens to be local columnist Erick Erickson. Erickson has become the self-appointed arbiter of the limits of “respectable” conservatism. Anyone transcending beyond those limits is to be ostracized, as has happened with his attacks on Donald Trump (photo, below).

He cites corroborative evidence from the University of Georgia (UGA). Wild hogs, as I have written elsewhere, are indeed a growing problem.

Faria: American naïveté (Part 2): "If you have nothing to hide..."

The powerful French Minister Cardinal Richelieu stated, “If one would give me six lines written by the hand of the most honest man, I would find something in them to have him hanged.” What Richelieu’s statement means is that the State can prosecute or blackmail and force anyone to do its bidding, once that person is targeted by the State for real, imagined, or fabricated offenses.

There is a Cuban proverb that reads: Dime con quien andas y te dire quien eres, which roughly translates: "Tell me who your friends are, and I will tell you who you are." For those who have not studied the issues and ramifications of convening a Constitutional Convention, now referred to as "Convention of States" to make it more palatable to state rights conservatives, the Cuban refrain should ring bells of concern. The Left has brought forth this issue numerous times.

Separation of Church and State — Worshipping at the Government Altar of Civil Religion

Recent Macon Telegraph articles and Letters to the Editor continue to discuss "separation of church and state," but frankly, many of them miss the mark.
