What was the Roseburg, Oregon Shooter’s Motivation


Chris Harper-Mercer, the Roseburg, Oregon gunman, was shot to death in a shootout with Roseburg police so we cannot ask him what would cause him to do what he did, but his social media activities can help give us a clue as to what motivated this young man to commit such a heinous act.

It has been reported that among the details authorities have allegedly found was one detail the left-wing media (and President Barack Obama) doesn’t want the public to know. Chris Harper-Mercer had a MySpace account on which he was friends with an apparent Islamic terror supporter.

The Daily Beast has reported that Harper-Mercer’s MySpace account on the now mostly defunct social media site included a contact, Mahmoud Ali Ehsani. Ehsani had pictures of “Mujahedeen” from around the world on his account, as well as a post in which he wrote “kill the Jews.”

Harper-Mercer’s MySpace page reportedly contained praise for terrorists as well. However, his terrorist heroes were admittedly from different ideology … his page had material glorifying members of the Irish Republican Army.

A blog linked to Harper-Mercer also contained praise for Roanoke shooter Vester Lee Flanagan, saying that people “like him have nothing left to live for.” Harper-Mercer is quoted as saying:

On an interesting note, I have noticed that so many people like him are all alone and unknown, yet when they spill a little blood, the whole world knows who they are.

A man who was known by no one, is now known by everyone. His face splashed across every screen, his name across the lips of every person on the planet, all in the course of one day. Seems the more people you kill, the more you’re in the limelight.”

The Washington Times has reported that Harper-Mercer’s shooting should be classified as a hate crime, because he specifically targeted Christians during his rampage.

Stacey Boylan, the mother of one of the witnesses to the shooting, told reporters that he asked potential victims whether or not they were Christian. He would have them stand up and then he would reply, “Good, because you’re a Christian, you’re going to see God in just about one second.” And then he would shoot and killed them.

It goes without saying that President Obama mentioned little or none of this in his speech on the matter last night, choosing to instead blame the entire incident on guns. His lapdog press, as would be expected, went right along with him and refused to report anything that contradicted Obama’s spin … especially the suspect’s possible link to a supporter of Islamic terrorism.


I really do miss the days when you could say the press was objective, impartial and you could believe what they reported.

American Conservative are Facists?


I am forever amused by the claim by progressive democrats and other left-wingers that American conservatives are somehow the Nazis (or Fascists) of modern America.  While it makes good campaign rhetoric or a bumper sticker slogan, the facts really do not support that claim at all.  In fact, the facts support just the opposite. The truth is that Communism and Fascism  are really close cousins. Despite the progressive’s propaganda, both communism and fascism are statist (large, intrusive, centralized) forms of government where the people serve the government.  American conservatives believe in limited government based on the consent of the people and that the government should serve the people (See the U.S. Constitution).  That is why they tend to support and defend  the U.S. Constitution.  Obama is an authoritarian ideologue who believes in an all powerful statist government.  It does not matter whether you call him a communist, socialist, fascist or progressive.  In the final analysis, it all mounts to the same thing.

Both Communism and Fascism find much of their ideology in the works of Hegel.  Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel was a German philosopher of the late Enlightment period and lived from 1770 to 1831.  Hegel’s philosophy was very influential to both Karl Marx and Adolf Hitler.  Marx would describe himself as a “Left Hegelian.” This meant that he adopted certain portions of Hegel’s views, such as Hegel’s views on alienated labor, the ideal state, and the “hero” of history, who Marx thought of as an engineer that could design society much like a master builder with a blueprint (Remind you of anyone?).

Hegel, along with Kant, Nietzsche and Wagner, also had great influence on Adolf Hitler vision for Germany. The “Right Hegelians” were more influenced by the necessity of “duty.  Hitler took from Hegel the notions that the state has supreme power over the individual and that historic progress demands conflict.  Hitler believed that Hegel’s “force within history” applied to the German people and he justified his invasion of Europe by using Hegel’s theory of ‘coming into being.

The only real-world difference between socialism, progressivism, communism and fascism is that in communism the state own everything, while in socialism, progressivism and fascism, the individual can actually own private property … the state just tells them what to do with it!

Sticks and Stones


It’s official!  According to Dennis Miller, a conservative leaning American stand-up comedian and political commentator, “Names now hurt us more than sticks and stones.”  It’s the dawn of a new age, the age of the oh-so-easily offended!

These mindless PC zombies are an extremely aggravating breed with very little useful purpose on the planet that I can see … I mean other than destroying our country and our culture. They are mindless drones who only know one thing … what offends them.  A prime example are to two reporters who heckled Donald Trump and Jeb Bush for using the term “anchor babies” on separate occasions.  It seems neither reporter could come up with a viable alternative for the term, but both were so obviously offended by the term that I thought I could even hear their bones breaking!

It is odd that these folks are so often the ones lecturing to us about the utmost importance of “freedom of speech,” but yet they’re the first to shoot down the opinions of anyone brave enough to express a point of view that isn’t identical to theirs.  It’s the height of hypocrisy to yell stridently about freedom of speech and then ruthlessly attack anyone who say anything you disagree with or don’t want to hear.

I think these folks need a  little mental toughness instilled in them.  Perhaps we should capture them, tie them to a chair and force them to repeatedly watch Grand Torino until they see the error of their ways.  Just saying!


We have devolved into the most whiniest, most thin-skinned, easily-offended society in history!  Americans have become a nation of cry-babies!  We have developed a unlimited capacity for being offended and, it has become our national pastime.

My Immigration Reform Plan

For me, real immigration reform does put the needs of the American people first.  It does seem we are the only country in the world whose immigration system puts the needs of other nations ahead of our own. I agree with Donald Trump that this must change.


Here are my three core principles for real immigration reform:

  1. A sovereign nation must control its borders.

We must stop both the flow of illegal immigrants across our borders and stop those entering with student Visas, etc. from staying beyond the period allowed under their visa.  We must control our southern border.  This may include a wall for many sections of the border and perhaps electronic monitoring or other sensors for other sections of the border.  We must increase the number of border patrol agents and allow them to do their job correctly while working in concert with local law enforcement agencies.  Illegal aliens with criminal records should be immediately deported and not allowed back into the country.  Illegal aliens with clean records (other than breaking our immigration laws) who are working and contributing members of their communities should be given a path to citizenship that includes making restitution for breaking our immigration laws (perhaps a fine, community service, or military service) and then be allowed to apply for legal status.  They should not be placed in front of those who are currently going through the legal immigration process.  Sanctuary cites should lose all funding from federal and state governments.

  1. We are a nation of laws.

All laws passed in accordance with our Constitutional system of government must be enforced by the executive branch.  The president and other law enforcement agencies do not get to pick and choose which laws they will enforce.  Reform the current immigration system to allow for more efficient legal immigration.

  1. The federal government exists to protect the rights of its citizens.

Any immigration reform plan must protect and improve the jobs, wages and security of all American citizens and legal immigrants.

FAQS:  The cost of not building a wall

  • Leaders in Mexico and other Latin American countries have been taking advantage of the United States by using illegal immigration to export the crime and poverty in their own country. The cost to the American taxpayer has been burdensome.  U.S. taxpayers have been forced to pick up billions in healthcare costs, housing costs, education costs, welfare costs, etc. The effects on jobseekers have also been disastrous, and black and Hispanic Americans have been especially harmed.
  • The impact in terms of crime has indeed been tragic. Recent headlines have covered cases of criminals who crossed our border illegally only to go on to commit horrific crimes against Americans. Most recently, an illegal immigrant from Mexico, with a long arrest record, is charged with breaking into a 64 year-old women’s home, crushing her skull and eye sockets with a hammer, raping her, and murdering her. The “blood trail” does indeed lead straight back to Washington, DC and Barack Obama.

Illegals flashing gang signs MS El Salvador

  • In 2011, the Government Accountability Office determined that there were 3 million arrests attached to the incarcerated alien population, including tens of thousands of violent beatings, rapes and murders (This figure is from the Obama administration’s own GAO).
  • Mexico makes billions on our bad trade deals and from the billions of dollars in remittances sent from illegal immigrants in the United States back to Mexico ($22 billion in 2013 alone).

Why I am an Independent Voter!


A comment was aimed at me the other day beginning with the words, “You republicans …….!”   Some people just do not get it at all.  It is no longer about Republican versus Democrat.  It is about the destruction of America!

I am not a Republican although I was for a period of time.  The Republican Party has let me down too many times now.  Can you tell me what the Republican Party stands for?  I can!  It stands for nothing.  They make promises to constituents to get elected and then cave on those same issues at the slightest pressure from the White House, the Democrats, or the press.  And, they do this despite having been given a majority in both Houses of Congress by the voters.  So either they suffer from completely deflated balls or they are RINOS.  It really doesn’t matter at this point.  I know there are a few truly conservative Republicans trying to do something to protect Americans but they are hamstrung and attacked by their own party.  This is why I am no longer a Republican.

I can certainly see what the Democratic Party stands for today.  It is obvious if you watch the news.  The current Democratic Party stands for Planned Parenthood selling aborted baby parts, making terrible deals with our enemies while abandoning our allies, giving illegal aliens free rein to steal from, rape and murder American citizens.  You think Trump is wrong?  He may not be the candidate of choice for me, but at least he speaks the truth.  The murder of Kathryn Steinle on the Embarcadero in San Francisco by an illegal alien is only the most recent example of a crime committed by an illegal alien.   Laura Wilkerson’s 18-year-old son was brutally tortured and murdered by a classmate he had offered a ride home.  The classmate would have been one of Obama’s “Dreamers.”


During testimony before the Congressional Judiciary Committee by parents of victims and Texas State Officials, it was revealed that illegal aliens have been involved in thousands of crimes in Texas alone, including nearly 3,000 homicides.  According to the analysis conducted by the Texas Department of Public Safety, illegal aliens committed 611,234 unique crimes in Texas from 2008 to 2014, including thousands of homicides and sexual assaults.  The report describes an alien crime wave of staggering proportions exacerbated by federal officials unwilling to enforce immigration laws. The Texas DPS report says well over 100,000 individual criminal aliens have been booked into Texas jails.

Let’s see.  In light of this illegal alien crime wave and increasing terrorist attacks on American  soil, the Democratic Party stands for disarming law-abiding American citizens.  They also stand for ignoring the rule of law and dismantling or circumventing the U.S. Constitution, dismantling our military, destroying our economy while fudging unemployment numbers, and subjecting U.S. Citizens to being ruled by the United Nations.

As a friend of mine posted:

Can we stop calling those on the far left liberals and progressives? Nice sounding terms but their actual political platform is Statism and Totalitarianism. Obsessed with “correct thought” and “Correct speech”, [and] the sacrifice of individual choice to ideological “experts”.  In no way is this thinking liberal or progressive. It is very regressive, the exact same policies were the foundation of Statist and Totalitarian regimes from Mao to Stalin, Mussolini and Hitler.  Identity politics, class warfare, racial politics, statistical law making, central planning, there is no correlation between these ideas and classical liberalism, or any of the founding documents of this country. These factors were the dominant trends that made people leave Europe and establish a country based on sovereign States, individual liberty and property rights. Our “liberals” fight against State sovereignty, individual liberty and individual property rights. And our population is apparently too poorly educated to understand our own history.


Nuff said!

NY Criminals: Don’t ask, don’t tell!

“In front of emotional supporters, New York City Mayor de Blasio signed legislation Monday that will prohibit employers from inquiring about a candidate’s criminal record prior to a job offer.”

Everyone’s favorite leftist liberal nut-case mayor is at it again!  Mayor de Blasio signed a law that will make it illegal for employers to ask prospective employees about their criminal background. So, for instance, if you run a day care and you want to know if an applicant has ever done anything bad such as kidnap or molest a child … sorry!  You’re now SOL!  The new  policy is “Don’t ask … don’t tell!

I am sure this will work out so well!


Especially since he is already on such good terms with the New York City Police Department!  How many of you New York liberals will want to take your kids to a daycare or let a service provider into your house in New York City after this law goes into effect?


Now that’s some real progress for you!

Defining ‘New Liberalism”

Another comment by Dan Gilbert:

“Classical liberalism” is the term used to designate the ideology advocating private property, an unhampered market economy, the rule of law, constitutional guarantees of freedom of religion and of the press, and international peace based on free trade. Up until around 1900, this ideology was generally known simply as liberalism. The qualifying “classical” is now usually necessary, in English-speaking countries at least (but not, for instance, in France), because liberalism has come to be associated with wide-ranging interferences with private property and the market on behalf of egalitarian goals. This version of liberalism — if such it can still be called — is sometimes designated as “social,” or (erroneously) “modern” or the “new,” liberalism. – Mises Institute.

Today what we have is Statism masquerading as Liberalism.

Socialist Slavery

And that is exactly what we have!  And, it is no secret why if you just take a look.  You can follow the Obama administration’s agenda and tactics point-by-point simply by picking up a copy of Rules for Radicals by Saul Alinsky and reading for your selves.  Saul Alinsky was a communist agitator.  His book is both Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton’s political strategy manual.

Indeed, Hillary Clinton was greatly influenced by Saul Alinsky.  She did disagree with some of his methodology and argued that to effect the real change Alinsky advocated, you had to become part of the system and bring it down from within.  This translates into … do whatever it takes to get elected (including lie, cheat and steal),  and once in the system work to bring about its downfall.  Yeah, I know.  It ‘s all a “vast right-wing conspiracy!”  Do you remember that saying we had as young kids … whomever calls someone else a name – is really it.  There is a lot of truth to that childish saying.  Can you name one positive and successful thing accomplished by Hillary Clinton as First Lady, as a senator from New York, or as Secretary of State?  I can’t.  Neither could a panel of liberal voters given that question during a panel discussion.  You can see it here.  But, you can find her at the center of several questionable scandals and possibly illegal actions

Previously unpublished correspondence between Hillary Clinton and the late left-wing organizer Saul Alinsky reveals new details about her true relationship with the controversial Chicago communist activist and shed light on her early ideological development.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing.  Her relationship with Saul Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969 as demonstrated by two letters Clinton wrote to Alinsky. These letters can be viewed here.

These letters are part of the archives for the Industrial Areas Foundation, a training center for community organizers founded by Alinsky, which are housed at the University of Texas at Austin.  The IAF is also, incidentally, where Obama received his political  “community organizer” training and served as an instructor for a time.

The letters also suggest that Alinsky, who died in 1972, had a deeper influence on Clinton’s early political views than previously known.

America: A liberal Skew!


There is no doubt liberal progressives really do such a fantastic job lying to the American people.

Conservatives need to develop a simple message that enables the “bumper sticker” mentality of the American electorate to realize they are being fed a hearty helping of bullshit. The political, media, and entertainment elite are pulling the wool over the eyes of everyday hard working Americans; and for what purpose? Their own selfish gain and interest.

I know some of you have already figured this out, but for those who haven’t, consider the following statements I saw once posted by Allen West:

The word conundrum is defined as a complex problem that is often puzzling or confusing. Here are six conundrums that exist in our contemporary United States of America.

  • America is capitalist and greedy – yet almost half of the population is subsidized
  • Half of the population is subsidized – yet they think they are victims.
  • They think they are victims – yet their representatives run the government.
  • Their representatives run the government – yet the poor keep getting poorer.
  • The poor keep getting poorer – yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about.
  • They have things that people in other countries only dream about – yet politicians (mostly progressive socialists) claim they want America to become more like those other countries.

And consider these following three observations about the current direction of our federal government and cultural environment:

  • We are advised not to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but on the other hand, we are admonished to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics. Funny how that works, as we see the liberal progressives already jumping on the recent tragedy in South Carolina. So what about the increase in stabbing victims, should we ban knives? I heard on the news yesterday that a man tried to poison a coworker by putting weed killer in his water bottle on several occasions.  Do we now also ban weed killer?
  • We constantly hear about how Social Security is running out of money. How come we never hear about welfare or food stamps on the verge of running out of money? Maybe the first group “worked for” their money, but the second didn’t. It is a simple case of printing money for political bribery and extortion.
  • Why are we cutting benefits for our veterans, giving no pay raises for our military and cutting our forces to a level lower than before WWII, but are expanding and increasing the benefits to illegal aliens? It is all about pandering for votes!  Who cares about national security or veterans dying at the hands of their own Veterans Administration?

Before you call me a racist at me and start scrabbling around for another flag to ban, calm down and think about these points for a minute.  To use a cliché that is probably banned by now for being  politically incorrect or even inciting gun violence – they seem to be pretty much “dead on target”
