Minaj, Paul 2024!

William F. Buckley once wrote “I would rather be governed by the first 2,000 people in the Boston phone book than by the faculty of Harvard.” His point being that he did not believe academics made the best legislators. Perhaps the elite intelligentsia are not best suited to govern our affairs. I have long been of the opinion that a highly competent and successful small business owner , a one man (or woman) auto-shop, a Plumber with his own van, or a house painter would be better suited to set economic policy than most of the stuffed suits who have been failing at this task for years. The former has had to beat the ground, provide top-notch customer service, and balance the books every month or risk going broke. The latter was more than likely born with a silver spoon in their mouth, been brainwashed with “theories” at the university, and if they fail, can still write a book, give some interviews, and leave Washington with a pocket full of cash. Similarly, a charismatic mid to large sized real estate agent or most large comprehensive High School Principals likely have the skills to be President of the United States.

When you look at the track record of the people who have been running our government for just the past 20 years alone, the catastrophic foreign policy misadventures, the national debt, the rise of the police state, the failures of the criminal justice system, the fraud, the waste, and the abuse; there is little reason to think that we could be any worse off by plucking average citizens from everyday life to serve in the federal government. Unfortunately, most average citizens do not have the name recognition, money or ability to raise it, or general “star power” to build a national profile. Accepting the premise that any competent adult with a bit more character, intelligence, and integrity than a rattlesnake can serve in the highest office of the land opens a plethora of possibilities.

It is for this reason that I think Nicki Minaj should be the next President of the United States with Rand Paul as her running mate. Unfortunately, the US Constitution would have to be amended to enable Mrs. Minaj to run, as she is not a “natural-born citizen” (given the significant influence foreign agents have on most of our current politicians, one must wonder how relevant this clause still is in 2021). In a previous article I expressed some disappointment with Minaj for her initial response to the criticism she received for her vaccine hesitancy. I did not think she was rebellious enough. Since then, she has doubled down on her position and defended herself aptly against her critics. As an African American, she has every right to be suspicious of the US government pushing free vaccines or any other type of medical treatment, considering what the same US government did in the Tuskegee experiment. Dr. Fauci and crew would like everyone to forget that the US government INJECTED 600 African Americans with syphilis just to see what would happen.

Minaj grew up in NY and waited tables at Red Lobster before she became famous. She is tough, smart, and a successful businesswoman,and a philanthropist. She would win the black vote and possibly turn some major cities out to vote for her. Rand Paul would be the perfect running mate. Paul has been the only national politician who has consistently and bravely questioned mask and vaccine mandates. He has taken Lord Fauci to task more than once. Paul has served in the Senate long enough to be the perfect person to help navigate Nicki Minaj through the swamp. While both she and Rand Paul may hold differing political positions, none of that matters now. A crisis is before us and they are united in a more pressing and common cause; the defense of individual liberty. As I have written before, bodily integrity, informed consent, and our 1st, 4th, and 14th amendment protections are all on the line. As Tucker Carlson has articulated regarding forced vaccines, “If you can do that, why can’t you sterilize me or give me a lobotomy? What can’t you do to me if you own my body?” The elites in power spend a great deal of effort keeping us divided along the lines of race and social and economic class. A pairing of two leaders with different ideas could be the start of bringing people together and taking back the power.

Minaj is an excellent entertainer with a stage presence eclipsing that of Donald Trump. She would easily win a debate with Joe Biden or Kamala Harris. Her ability to act and freestyle rap means she will be quick-witted and articulate on the debate stage and she can connect with her audience better than any politician. She has the charisma and star power to win and, other than opposing vaccine mandates, she does not have to provide specific details on any other political positions. I recall in 2016, Donald Trump ascended to the White House with no details, just phrases like “we are gonna have great health care, we will build a beautiful wall, we’re gonna have the best military…” There were never any details. At this point, the only thing that really matters is that people like Minaj and Paul get in power so that people like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, and Anthony Fauci are NOT in power. We can figure the rest out later.

Vaccine mandates illuminate clearly the core issue before us today. It is the same question that we answered in the revolution of 1776. Are we citizens or are we subjects? In the 1770’s, South Carolina historian David Ramsay explained the difference between the two: “The difference is immense. Subject is derived from the Latin words, sub and jacio and means one who is under the power of another; but citizen is a unit of a mass of free people, who collectively possess sovereignty…” Nicki Minaj translated and modernized this line of thinking in her response to Meghan McCain’s attempt to shame her into taking a vaccine by tweeting “Eat shit you.” This might be an appropriate campaign slogan for the elite to hear in 2024! It certainly encapsulates the mood of over half the country who refuse to be treated like subjects and who have been told not to test the patience of their daddy in the White House.

Assuredly, many will want Trump to run again in 2024. Ironically, the same problem that Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton had in 2016 now befalls Trump, albeit to a lesser extent. People were tired of “Bush, Clinton, Bush, Clinton.” Enough people could have “Trump fatigue” by 2024. Larry Elder’s landslide loss in the California recall after he was (fairly or unfairly) painted as another Donald Trump is a concern. Further, Trump presided over enormous deficit spending, is the father of the Covid Vaccine, and made the fatal mistake of surrounding himself with a cabinet of Washington insiders who undermined him at every turn from day one. Trump may have had good intentions at some point. He and his brand are now compromised. His enemies know him too well. Trump showed us that Washington hates a disrupter, but needs one – and the citizens need a fighter. Nicki Minaj could be that fighter. Plus it would be cool to see her and Rand Paul on the inauguration stage with balloons and confetti raining down while “Super Bass” or “Starships” played in the background.

The Age of Rage

Published

on

Many Republicans are seething in response to Biden’s destructive agenda that has contributed to high inflation, ad exploding deficit, urban lawlessness, and an out-of-control Southern border. More and more Americans are eager to turn their anger into a November landslide against Democrats. They’re tired of the rampant lawlessness, the irresponsible DAs unwilling to prosecute criminals, and the deficit spending that has unleashed inflation impacting the lives of every American.

The recent leak about the reversal of Roe v. Wade has given woke extremists all they need to justify angry, even violent, demonstrations. The decision is not even final, but liberals are marching on the homes of conservative Supreme Court Justices. Some justices have moved from their homes to ensure the safety of their families.

The lockdowns and restrictions tied to the COVID pandemic have certainly added to the anger of many citizens. People watch shows that reinforce their own views. Such one-sided journalism helps justify violent actions. But let’s be clear. Viewers respond with high ratings from the steady stream of extremists. Rage is the “eye candy” that now attracts viewers. Yes, there are extreme views expressed on either side of our political divide, but the vast majority of rage and violence is coming from the left.

Press Secretary Jen Psaki has complained about threats and personal attacks, but Republicans point out that the party has not publicly shared the addresses of any Biden administration official’s home address.

After the leak of a potential Supreme Court reversal on Roe v. Wade, a pro-abortion protest in downtown Los Angeles turned into a violent clash with law enforcement after officers were called to disperse the increasingly disruptive crowds, resulting in the injury of at least one officer. What started as a small protest outside the city’s federal courthouse building, grew increasingly rowdy and disruptive. The protest grew despite promises from state officials and liberal lawmakers to codify the ability to access abortion in California.

A group called “Jane’s Revenge” claimed to be behind the attack on the offices of Wisconsin Family Action. The “warning” demanded that pro-life organizations disband in 30 days. They claimed, “We have run thin on patience for those who seek to strip us of what little autonomy we have left.” The group claimed that it had groups “all over the U.S.”

Columnist and pundit Victor Davis Hanson wrote, “Politics are resembling the violent last days of the Roman Republic. An illegal leak of a possible impending Supreme Court reversal of Roe v. Wade that would allow state voters to set their own abortion laws has created a national hysteria. Never has a White House tacitly approved mobs of protesters showing up at Supreme Court justices’ homes to rant and bully them into altering their votes.”

Commenting on the angry demonstrations, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnel said it well, “It is an attempt to replace the rule of law with the rule of mobs.” It’s the mobs that get the coverage, and that coverage encourages more attacks.

The rage hasn’t been limited to the abortion issue. In January, the leftist ShutDownDC group picketed outside Sen. Josh Hawley’s (R-MO) home in Virginia. Hawley said at the time, “Tonight while I was in Missouri, Antifa scumbags came to our place in DC and threatened my wife and newborn daughter, who can’t travel. They screamed threats, vandalized, and tried to pound open our door. Let me be clear: My family, and I will not be intimidated by leftwing violence.”

Since that threat, there have been seemingly a stream of violent attacks and murders. From the mowing down of innocent black citizens in Buffalo New York, to the ongoing carnage in inner-city Chicago, and to the attack on worshipers at the Taiwanese Presbyterian Church, the violence is just expanding.

We may have ushered in the age of rage, but the vast majority of Americans do not want it to continue. It’s time we all demand an end to violence and stop legitimizing destructive demonstrations. The answer to hate speech is not violence or forced silence. The answer is more speech, more respectful, thoughtful, even passionate dialogue across our divide. Freedom and rights are only real when you extend and ensure those rights to those who openly disagree with you. Let freedom ring. Let’s return to disagreeing without being quite so disagreeable. Rage may get you on the news, but it doesn’t ensure the future of our republic. Demand more. Start being part of the answer by being responsible for your own actions.

Ignore Much of What Pundits Have to Say

Can we be confident in advice we receive from people who have not mastered what they teach?

Published

on

When the opportunity arose, I attended a lecture by one of the most well-known authors and speakers in America. I had previewed his CD and read two of his books prior to his lecture; in person, he lived up to my expectations. So, I was intrigued when a friend, involved with bringing this speaker to our area relayed a personal incident to me. 

Directly following the speaker’s presentation, my friend was responsible for driving him to the airport, and accompanying him until his flight departed. That summer afternoon, it was rainy and the skies were dark.

As it turned out, the author was a nervous flyer and took several drinks in the airport lounge prior to boarding the plane.  I found this incident to be amazing because I had so often heard him say things such as, “Everything in this universe is perfect.” It struck me that, in many ways, the speaker wasn’t practicing his philosophy. Nevertheless, all human beings have their faults and foibles and, as time passed, I forgot about the incident.

High-Priced Gurus

One morning, I had the occasion to pick up USA Today. In the lifestyle section, there was a feature on a relationship guru and author of international best-sellers on relationships. She had won the “Oscar” of infomercials, earning $24 million in a single year.  

In this published interview, the reporter asked her why we should listen to a relationship guru who had been married five times. Five times? I couldn’t believe it! She had wedded her fifth husband, some 11 years her junior, only a short time before producing her award-winning infomercial on having a successful relationship. 

In the infomercial, she is featured as having a loving relationship with her husband. Okay, but in no way does the infomercial tell us that he is her fifth husband and that she had married him three weeks ago.

Not Walking their Talk

I had a flash from the past: I recalled the story about the nervous flyer author. Yet, nothing prepared me for the revelations about the relationship guru, a self-proclaimed expert, using the slickest 21st-century marketing available to sell her information and products.  

She was well-versed in her subject matter. Upon hearing her advice, I recognized that it did seem sound. However, the larger issue is, “Can we be confident in the advice we receive from those who have not mastered what they teach, or who do not even remotely walk their talk?”
