ARLIN REPORT THOUGHT OF THE DAY: dull politics


usaf1

There really isn’t much that I can say today on politics and the 2016 Campaign that hasn’t been repeatedly said.  By now we should know what we have.

Some of those in Obama’s cabinet are endorsing Hillary Clinton.   Not sure they can help or save her.   They don’t have the best reputations either.   Rick Perry’s endorsement of Ted Cruz, should help a little, especially in Texas.

There you have it for the day, kind of boring isn’t it?   The shadow government really is winning this war.

One more thought, how accurate is the X-files………was a political statement made on the tube last night?   A warning!   Nahhhhhhhh, not from Hollywood.

TED CRUZ vs. REPUBLICAN ELITE IN WASHINGTON


 

Ted Cruz is 100% correct, the Republican House and Senate in Washington has done absolutely “NOTHING”.    The current field of candidates for president, calling themselves Republicans, don’t look much different.  What are they telling you, what are they discussing?   Nothing, except talk about Donald Trump.  Donald Trump is dominating discussion, not about issues but about Donald Trump.   THAT is playing into Donald Trump’s hands.   The Republican Party is making Donald Trump, not just a candidate, but, an ISSUE.  Now he becomes a question in every interview.   When a candidate is being interviewed and ask questions on issues………they comeback to the ISSUE of TRUMP.

Erick Erickson’s uninviting Trump from Erickson’s Redstate Gathering, did what?   Gave Trump more headlines, he became the focus, at least of the opening of Erickson’s party.   Later we find out that was a bit hypocritical of Erickson; seems he has done some politically “incorrect” name calling of his own.

Chuck Todd of Meet the Press, interviewed Trump this morning.   Let me rephrase that:  Todd was trying to force an apology from The Donald for the comments directed toward Megyn Kelly (you know, the “Blood coming from her eyes………etc. thing).   More headlines for Donald!  Now the news is Donald Trump won’t apologize.   They spent most of the program discussing how and what it would take to make Donald Trump go away from the presidential race.  All they did was confirm, the mainstream media pushing the outcome of American politics in a direction favorable to their agenda.

Alert!   While I have been writing this post, a news development just occurred; Chuck Todd actually interviewed (pre-recorded) Marco Rubio about a couple of actual issues without mentioning Donald Trump.   Is there hope?    Nope!   He went to Claire McCaskill and he could not avoid it.    You know, Claire the Hillary supporter.  Now there is an ethical source of political opinion for you.

You want Donald Trump to fade back into his penthouse, or to his golf courses?   Then, they must start talking about the issues confronting this nation.   And yes, some of those topics are issues being slapped around by Trump.   Stop making trump the issue.  I want to know what the presidential candidate is going to do in the future.   How is he or she going to get the Republican Party to uphold the promises made.   When does the status quo change?

Trump has received much of his attention/support as “The Protest Candidate”.    We have set and watched Congress set on their hands, doing nothing, giving Obama free reign.   The other candidates to be successful must discuss the issues.   Not just talk about the problem, but solutions, their solutions.

Only the candidates can get rid of Trump. Ted Cruz has an opportunity to take the Republican football and run.  Carly Fiorina belongs in the next Republican debate with the boys.   Carly, some advice, be the real different kind of Republican.   Tell us what you would do and how you would do it.   That would be refreshing.  It’ll go along way.   Don’t worry about political correctness or tone, but set Trump aside.    🙂

 

OBAMA – SENATE – FAMILY TREE

Go to the link below.  It is pretty wild.  According to this, Obama has 44 cousins, albeit distant, in the Senate.  LOL, most would appear to be white.

According to The Guardian, a study has found and confirmed Obama does in fact have 44 cousins in the Senate.

From The Guardian, AJ Jacobs for example, points to Obama and his 44 cousins in the U.S.Senate, including Republican Sen. Ted Cruz, one of the biggest critics in the Congress of the Obama administration. Cruz is actually the husband of the President’s 14th cousin once removed.

This proves we are all closer in relation than you probably ever  imagined.   When it is that distant, such as a 14th cousin, how much blood do you really share?   Does this also mean for all those cousins in the Senate related to Obama, does their line lead to Kenya as well?

How many cousins does Charlie Manson have and who might they be?

I just learned of this and have a load of questions and wild thoughts.  Crazy!

BORN IN CALGARY, MOTHER A CITIZEN OF U.S., THAT WE KNOW


 

Donald Trump has raised the question about Senator Cruz’s birthplace and his eligibility to be president of these United States, a country as you know that follows the constitution article to article and word for word. Well our present POTUS does not anyhow.   It doesn’t make it right, but it must be in the future.  We really don’t want another Obama.

Below is an excerpt of an article from The Atlantic by David Graham on the matter.

————————————————————————————-

But what won’t prevent Cruz from becoming president is his place of birth. Cruz was born in Calgary, Canada, while his parents were living there. His father is now an American citizen, but was not at the time; his mother, however, was born in the United States.

Helpfully, the Congressional Research Service gathered all of the information relevant to Cruz’s case a few years ago, at the height (nadir?) of Obama birtherism. In short, the Constitution says that the president must be a natural-born citizen. “The weight of scholarly legal and historical opinion appears to support the notion that ‘natural born Citizen’ means one who is entitled under the Constitution or laws of the United States to U.S. citizenship ‘at birth’ or ‘by birth,’ including any child born ‘in’ the United States, the children of United States citizens born abroad, and those born abroad of one citizen parents who has met U.S. residency requirements,” the CRS’s Jack Maskell wrote. So in short: Cruz is a citizen; Cruz is not naturalized; therefore Cruz is a natural-born citizen, and in any case his mother is a citizen.

Will that satisfy the question?  Probably not, the Democrats will make an issue of every issue and non-issue.  They will, if they haven’t already toss around that it was a major concern of Republicans, Obama’s birth certificate.   That’s okay, Cruz unlike Obama has not hidden or falsified documents regarding where he was born.

We certainly have the right to question, know the truth, and follow the law.   The only question now may be the interpretation of the constitution.  Will the Democrats place a typical political twist on it and challenge the constitution’s intent?   Someone will!

By the way:  I like Canadians.

 

OBAMACARE: JUST THE NAME SUCKS


Embedded image permalink

Obamacare, the name alone expresses failure.

We did’t need a socialist healthcare program forced upon all.  Those that had through their own efforts should have been left alone.  The healthcare industry should not be ruled or regulated by the government.  The effectiveness of the government is like a blind man crossing the street and keeps getting hit by a car.

Obamacare is like welfare being forced on you whether you need it or not.   Raise some up by pushing others down…….way down.
