Abraham Trumps Gettysburg Address

This is a humor post but just to be clear, IMO, Trump would trump our current president by far.


November 19, 1863 – Gettysburg, Pennsylvania – President Abraham Trump delivers his famous address


Thanks. What an incredible crowd. They tell me this is the biggest crowd in the history of the North.

A while back some founders got together. And I mean they were good people but they really didn’t know anything about building a country. C’mon, you know, let’s face facts. Franklin with his little glasses and Washington with those horrible dentures — it was a nightmare. They didn’t know what the hell they were doing.

So then everyone comes to me and they say, “Please help us we’re in this terrible mess.” And believe me I knew this was gonna happen because our leaders were a total disaster who didn’t have a clue how to negotiate. Not the first clue, OK. It’s crazy. And I knew em all. Millard Filmore? The guy was a trainwreck. Franklin Pierce? A complete moron. Moron. And then James Buchanan they say dressed up like a woman if you can even believe it. I could tell you stories.

I mean they’re useless but I did business with ’em because I’m a businessman. It’s what I do. I traded cotton. I traded tobacco. I built the biggest plantations in the world. In fact I’ll tell you a story. Jefferson Davis came to me and begged me — begged me to live on a beautiful plantation that I had built in Mississippi. And it was beautiful, everything top notch and luxurious. I mean not the slave cabins ’cause they’re built for slaves. But everything was great and he’s pleading with me and what am I gonna say, “No”? So I sold it to him for an unbelievable profit. Largest profit ever made on a plantation sale. Hundreds of dollars in profit all pre-Confederate, which two centuries from now will be worth around $10 billion if maybe I decide to leave any to my kids. Who knows. We’ll see. And I say that not to brag just to give you an idea what’s what.

And by the way the slaves love me. Love me. The food portions. The amount of sleep. They’re nuts about me. If they end up freed when this is all over I will win the slave vote.

Anyway our politicians are the worst, they’re total failures and they didn’t let the South go bye bye and so I pick up the paper today and I read Salmon Chase may run against me in ’64! This idiot is in my own cabinet. And I like my cabinet, most of them have terrible beards but they’re OK. They follow orders. First of all what kind of name is Salmon? Should be a harpooneer on a whaling ship with a name like that. So I thought to myself, Salmon Chase, isn’t he the guy who night and day pleaded for a job with me after I kicked his ass at the convention in 1860? It was. I even found his telegraph number, give it a try see if it works. Dot dot dash dash dash dot dash dot dot dot dash.

And I can just hear the papers: “Abraham’s attacking again. He’s saying terrible things.” No. I say what I say because I’m honest. And I’m actually doing my job. Not like those nitwits in Washington. I mean I’m out here opening a cemetery for Christ sake! And as I look at this place I’m thinking, “How could there have been so many casualties?” There’s rocks and orchards all around, if I had the time I’d develop the property, but you can’t tell me that if you call yourself a soldier and you hear a shell or something coming you couldn’t have found a place to hide. And incidentally, so what, now Meade is some kind of a great general because he defeated Pickett’s charge? You’re up on a ridge with all your cannons and everything and the other army is walking right toward you. I mean they’re literally walking. Who couldn’t win that!

The point is I’m up all hours saving the Union and then here we are in this cemetery and I’m supposed to do what? Honor the dead? They’re dead. They’re losers. How are we in debt to them? I hate to tell you, but I like the guys who didn’t die. I’ll honor some of them.

And speaking of honoring, they want me to wrap up so they can honor me at a dinner. I’m so in demand it’s insanity half the time. All I’m telling you is if you’re living everything is for you.


Ted Cruz is the first Cuban/American to run for President. He has extremely strong conservative credentials:

  1. Starting at the age of 13, he participated in a Houston-based group called the Free Market Education Foundation where he learned about free-market economic philosophers such as Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek, Frédéric Bastiat and Ludwig von Mises.
  2. He Graduated cum laude from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts in Public Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs in 1992.
  3. While at Princeton, he competed for the American Whig-Cliosophic Society’s Debate Panel and won the top speaker award at both the 1992 U.S. National Debating Championship and the 1992 North American Debating Championship.
  4. In 1992, he was named U.S. National Speaker of the Year, as well as Team of the Year, with his debate partner, David Panton. Cruz and Panton represented Harvard Law School at the 1995 World Debating Championship, making it to the semi-finals. Princeton’s debate team later named their annual novice championship after Cruz.
  5. Cruz’s senior thesis on the separation of powers, titled “Clipping the Wings of Angels,”
  6. After graduating from Princeton, Cruz attended Harvard Law School, graduating magna cum laude in 1995 with a Juris Doctor degree.
  7. While at Harvard Law, he was a primary editor of the Harvard Law Review, and executive editor of the Harvard Journal of Law and Public Policy, and a founding editor of the Harvard Latino Law Review.
  8. Professor Alan Dershowitz said, “Cruz was off-the-charts brilliant.” At Harvard Law, Cruz was a John M. Olin Fellow in Law and Economics.
  9. He is currently US Senator from Texas and serves on the Board of Advisors of the Texas Review of Law and Politics.
  10. He has a voting record score of 96% on conservative issues and is ranked the #2 conservative in the Senate at

The following AFP interview is informative as it goes into his personal background, national policy at some length, and also the behind the scenes politics in Washington DC.

Hillary Emails

Another day, another scandal. More lies. Plenty to hide. The tip of the iceberg.

Republican: The Party of the Future

The Republican Party has 31 governors, two-thirds of all state legislative chambers, and control of both the House and the Senate. For President in 2016, it’s candidates are numerous, strong and younger than the opposition. Much younger in many cases.


Here is how the Presidential candidates rate on conservative positions. The clear leaders are Cruz, Paul, and Walker, in that order, who have no red marks. The ratings are based on actions, not just words.


Here is how the Senator Presidential candidates rank by number. Note that Ted Cruz is exceeded in the Senate only by Senator Mike Lee, of Utah, who ranks A 100%



Here is how our Oregon Representative and Senators rank over the last six years. From bad to horrific.



1st 2016 Republican Presidential Debate

Best Presidential debate I have ever seen. The questions were sharp, incisive and tailored to each candidate. The responses were spirited and intelligent. This is a great group of candidates. Best ever.

American Presidents in Uniform


Dangerous Low Information Voters

America is Still a Christian Nation

The United States of America is an exceptional nation.  We are not just another nation in the family of nations.  What would it be like to have a president who is patriotic and has a deep love for America?


We have every right to fly the American flag.  We are proud of what it represents.  One school administrator told a student that he could not display a flag at school on his pick-up truck…really?


Liberals, who now own and control the Democrat Party, think that the end justifies the means when it comes to public policy:


Obama is mocking us.  He is fully aware of what he stands for and when he tells a joke about himself; he knows that the joke is actually on us:


The socialist policies of this administration have proved to be a huge failure.  Reagan (trickle-down economics) vs. Obama (trickle-down socialism):


Obamacare costs too much and doesn’t deliver.  As with any totalitarian program, the cost far exceeds the benefit:


God speed the right.  Days left in the Obama presidency:

Bob Woodward: Bush Didn’t Lie About Iraq

The Clinton Family Crime Foundation

We should WANT Hillary Clinton in the White House…right?


If they don’t want the message to get out…they just kill the messenger:


We don’t need another arrogant, narcissistic, pathological, habitual liar in the White House:


America cannot trust Hillary Clinton:


Democrat hypocrisy is on full display.  Who is the rich, elitist, out-of-touch candidate now?


Why do we need to have a substantive discussion of the issues?  Hillary Clinton thinks she is entitled to the Presidency and that’s all we need to know for now:

Video is a little choppy but good food for thought…

An indictment of Barack Obama (and all those who support him)

CJ Pearson’s Viral Video

This 12-year-old middle schooler had his facebook account cancelled because of this video as have many other conservative commentators.

One would wish more conservative politicians would speak up for American values with the same passion as CJ Pearson.

Rudy Giuliani Unbound

This is good stuff. Rare it is to see such passion in a politician on such an important subject.

112 Broken Promises in 12 Minutes

It’s too painful to watch the current State of the Union address but here are 112 broken promises from past SOTU’s. No one should feel guilty about passing on Obama’s SOTU speech. The president’s track record provides ample justification for not listening to anything he says.




A political leader who tries to get support by making false claims and promises and using arguments based on emotion rather than reason.  A leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power.

The demagoguery used by Democrats so effectively in prior elections falls flat this time.  Some American voters are not as “stupid” as Grubber imagined.  The so-called “War on Women” backfired this time as Democrat women were defeated and Republican women were elected:

The Democrats try to silence black men and women that think independently of the Democrat party because it destroys the Democrat “racism” narrative:

Who is racist?  Most American’s don’t realize that Obama marched with the Black Panthers:

Obama hiring thousands of new federal employees to implement his unconstitutional executive amnesty order:

Obama is the greatest threat to freedom since King George III:

A coalition of states is suing the Obama administration over his illegal executive action immigration order:

The Democrat Obama coalition is breaking apart as working-class Americans and middle-class Americans abandon the Democrats:

Goodbye Dirty Harry!  The Republicans gain nine senate seats.  The GOP has a solid majority in the US Senate at 54 (R) to 46 (D):

The national debt hits $18 trillion:

The national debt in real time:

Real HOPE and CHANGE is coming:

GruberGate in 2 Minutes

Democrats caught lying, yet again.

New ObamaCare Taxes And Fees Coming


Democrate Lame Duck

Obama has been an unmitigated DISASTER – but much of the damage can be undone:


Democrats approval rating plunges to a record LOW:


Republicans won BIG in the recent election:


Republicans were elected to STOP Barack Obama:


Behold the incredible SHRINKING President:


The voters turn RIGHT…Obama goes LEFT.  Which seems impossible.  He was already so far left I didn’t think he could go any farther left:


Remember this?  In 2013 Obama taunted Conservatives to “go out there and WIN an election.”


The people holed up in the White House refuse to admit they lost the election.  They just can’t say the word “LOST”:


The fact is – many Democrats who voted for Obama care are GONE from Congress:


Republicans now control 70% of ALL state legislatures:


Democrats SPENT $1.64 billion to LOSE the midterm elections:


Even Blue State Oregon REJECTS driver licenses for illegal immigrants:
