The Reticence to Reveal Our Conservatism

Our numbers are vast and our views are sound

Published

on

With all the serious, deadly, and nation-destroying tactics and blunders of the Biden Administration, including arming Hamas and Hezbollah, we on the Right are in awe, and not in a good way. Within the rank-and-file, however, do we speak up loudly enough?

Attending a mixer, I met a woman who was a professor. She lived one town over and was active in sports and in a number of other pastimes. I saw online that she was a registered Republican. This surprised me because so few professors seem to be Republicans. And, these days, it can be a risky endeavor, given that in many universities, the percentage of Democrat or Progressive professors is above 85%.

I thought to myself, “When it comes to politics, she must be handcuffed in her personal life. She can’t write articles, she can’t send opinions to the editor, or put anything in print in which she believes. She can’t bring up topics with her peers at work; they would shun her or find a way to drive her out of her salaried position. She can’t let students know how she feels about certain issues.”

Out of the Shadows, Into the Light

What if everyone involved in education, from grade school through college, with BS degrees, master’s degrees, and PhDs had the right to come out of the shadows? What if they could write about, talk about, and post what they truly feel? Clearly, the observation that these learned people could make would be magnificent and impactful.

Knowing that your views would be seen by others and that you’d be backed up in written and verbal ways, in public forms and institutions, would inspire even more academic Republicans to come out of the shadows and, when appropriate, become vocal about their true political views.

We know why so many people in academia are stifled: cancellation; threats; ostracism. These are the tactics of the Left. They practice them on a continuous basis against virtually anyone who shares any type of opinion that differs from theirs.

What we need in this country and around the world is an initiating spark that will lead to a tidal wave. There is no substitute for having highly learned professors on the Right being able to speak their minds freely, and those on the Left can do without apprehension.

An Enduring Impact

The wisdom of what they have to say would have a tremendous impact. We know that our policies are better. We know that we have the truth, and that the truth will set people free. We know that our nation is great and can be even greater.

It’s only a matter of time before the Leftists, remaining unchecked, will destroy everything that took more than 200 years to put in place. And yet, waiting in the wings, we have a huge reserve of people who can speak eloquently about Conservative policies and views.

The time to speak up is now. We can’t wait another year or two. We can’t allow the Biden Administration to run amuck as it has been doing. We can’t let the Leftists bully us into silence. We need to exhibit the qualities that made this country great: courage; stamina; perseverance. It is up to us. No one is coming to save us.

The Brave Need Our Support

Donald Trump is doing his best. Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, Tom Cotton, Josh Hawley, Kari Lake, Nikki Haley, Kristi Noem, Jim Jordan, Matt Gates, and others are all doing a tremendous job, but they need support in ways that they have not yet received. We must pick up the slack. We can transform the nation in a hurry, to further our greatness.

We can stop this juggernaut of socialism, Marxism, and insanity that leads to ruin. We need the tidal wave of Conservative thought and views to commence, where professors everywhere, who lean Right, can speak their minds, along with others in key positions: deans of schools, presidents of universities, and heads of think tanks.

All those in the know, collectively, would make a magnificent and profound impact on public discourse in America. We don’t need The New York Times, The Washington Post, NPR, or any of the corporate-owned Leftist organizations.

Within Our Grasp

Our numbers are vast. Our views are sound. This is within our grasp. Let us all join together and make our voices heard. Let us influence the masses in ways that will benefit them, their children, and their grandchildren forevermore.

Give Thanks and Carry On

Have a Happy Thanksgiving, if you can

Published

on

Thanksgiving: that joyous time of the year when families get together, have a wonderful dinner, catch up on what everyone other is doing, give thanks for all that they have, and perhaps watch some football.

Up for the Challenge?

This Thanksgiving might prove to be a challenge for many people. For one, the cost of the turkey, the bird traditionally served, in some locals cost between 50% to 80% more than last year, and turkey was already expensive.

Among your relatives a few might be vegans or vegetarians. If you have a vegan enforcer in the family, this person will rail on and on against eating meat, and about how turkeys have lives just like we do.

One of your vegan or vegetarian relatives might offer a discourse on how cranberries should be harvested a different way, the dangers of turkey stuffing, and the problem with vegetables that you might be serving, the risk of having too many starches – potatoes or rice – and the evils of wine, beer, and other alcoholic drinks.

Topics Worth Avoiding

The politics to consider abound. Since roughly half of the country votes Democrat and half votes Republican, the odds are overwhelming that you’re going to have somebody with opposing politics at the table. During Trump’s years as president, many families had to navigate around the topic of the presidency, prevailing policies. and so on.

Today, while there’s no question that Joe Biden is completely inane as leader, the same delicate navigation needs to occur. As miraculous as this might seem, some on the left actually approve of what Biden has been doing. Note: don’t be concerned about the Bidens going hungry. With all those under-the-table payment from Ukraine and China, they can EASILY afford a huge, expensive turkey with all of the trimmings.

If you can avoid discussing the eight million invaders illegally crossing our borders, rampant inflation, the U.S. Afghanistan withdrawal, the crisis in Israel and potential for World War III, drag time story hour for children, transgenderism, the bogus lawsuits against Donald Trump, the unending crimes of Hunter Biden, the payola to Joe Biden, FBI corruption, the historic unpopularity and ineptness of Kamala Harris, and about 30 or so other topics, your dinner should go smoothly. Enjoy!

A huge current wrinkle on the political scene is that recent surveys reveal at least one-quarter of Democrats actually approve of Hamas, atrocities and all, and side with Palestine on all issues large and small. They believe that Israel is an apartheid state and that Jews are today’s Nazis. Apparently they’ve never visited Israel and have no Jewish friends.

Depending on how many Democrats attend your Thanksgiving gathering, if it’s four or more, mathematically speaking you have a decent chance that one is a pro-Hamas Democrat. Wooo…  Now, you really have to stay clear of current issues or your dinner table might be as inflamed verbally as the Middle East is with armaments.

Insufferable Stuffing

After everyone is stuffed with turkey, vegeburgers, or whatever the people who like rabbit food eat, you might sit in the den and turn on a football game. Quickly, you’ll have a stark reminder of how far political correctness has infected society.

If the Washington Commanders are playing, it’s hard to forget that they used to be called the Washington Redskins until the wokesters among us demanded that the name must be changed. Not so ironically, 90% of native Americans actually want the name Washington Redskins reinstalled, and currently are petitioning for it.

In baseball, the Cleveland Indians “had” to be renamed to the Cleveland Guardians. Potentially, there’s no end of this malarkey. Should the Minnesota Vikings change their name? After all, people from Scandinavia might object to the term “Vikings.” While we’re at it, consider college basketball. The Wake Forest University Demon Deacons are due for a name change, if you’re on the Left. So, too, the Duke University Blue Devils, the Arizona University Aztecs, and on and on.

Landmines to Side Step

With all these potential land mines to side step, and all the ways that otherwise pleasant conversations on a pleasant day could occur, you have to be on guard.

Nevertheless, I wish you and yours a happy Thanksgiving. May you survive the day, fully intact, and ready to have a decent Black Friday.

Biden Boondoggles Imperil the U.S. and the World

The Biden Administration is the picture of futility and incompetence, mixed with corruption and persecution of its political opponents

On my last day following a long sojourn abroad, I met a wonderful woman from North Dallas, had dinner with her, and memorized her email address.

Trending on PolitiCrossing.com: Learning About My State’s History

When I arrived home the next day, I emailed her to see if she had had a decent trip back. A couple of minutes later, my email bounced back to me as undeliverable. Realizing my mistake of failing to write down her email address or the spelling of her last name, over several weeks I tried numerous alternative methods at length for finding that information, but with no success.

I had not handled it right and I could not later correct the mistake. You’ve long heard the phrase by the late, legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, “If you don’t have time to do it right, when will you have time to do it over?” I would add, will you have the opportunity to correct the damage done or even to try again?

Macro Level Bungles

It’s hard to even imagine the frustration and problems for all of us considering the never-ending missteps we watch every day from our president!

Biden and company have engaged in macro-level failures for nearly three years now. Their repeated failures to take early appropriate steps, domestically and internationally, has had serious ramifications for the nation and the world.

In chain-like fashion, their ineptness, unintentional and intentional, has spun out of control and led to one unpalatable situation after another. Then they spend untold labor hours and multi-billions of dollars, not to mention American lives, seeking to correct what they could not get right in the first place.

The disastrous withdrawal from Afghanistan caused the loss of American lives and $85 billion dollars worth of military equipment to the Taliban. This ‘gift’ is ultimately finding its way to our enemies throughout the region and, arguably, globally. It also has signaled to the rest of the world, particularly Russia, China, Iran, and North Korea, as well as to Hamas, Hezbollah, and Islamic Jihad, that American military effectiveness is questionable.

As a result of not adequately planning the withdrawal from Afghanistan, as President Trump had already outlined, the Biden Administration has been scrambling ever since. Following our Afghanistan withdrawal Russia’s invasion of Ukraine under a false pretext, and the resulting multi-billions we have spent propping up Ukraine, are major unfortunate results.

Middle East Madness

Another result of our ineptness is the spate of attacks, now several dozen, on U.S. Armed Forces throughout the Middle East following the barbaric Hamas attack on Israel.

China’s forays into the Middle East and its support of Iran further imperil Israel and, by extension, the U.S. In considering the Biden Administration, China is emboldened. They are in partnership with Russia ostensibly for one reason: to hasten our declining power. They have ramped up spying on us via “weather balloons,” university “research centers,” exchange “students,” industrial spying, and, of late, the influx of more than 17,000 Chinese nationals at our southern border – all single men of military age.

Because the Biden Administration intentionally has not secured the southern border it has subjected American citizens to crime, fentanyl addiction, and massive numbers of deaths, as well as bursting federal, state, and municipal budgets in the attempt to house, feed, and safeguard swarming numbers of illegal immigrants.

Biden’s porous border policies have invited terrorists, weakened any notion of U.S. homeland security, heightened child trafficking, accelerated drug cartel activity, and aided gang-related connections throughout our county.

Poor Planning, Execution and Follow Up

Across the board, in examining the policies and programs of the Biden Administration and how poorly they’ve been designed and initiated, it is now apparent that everything they do today represents one attempted, hopeless ‘correction’ after another.

These attempted corrections are long drawn out, invariably with no end in sight. Whether it is on the world stage or domestically, each boondoggle after another leads to protracted, expensive, questionable attempts to resolve what didn’t need to occur in the first place.

It is not an exaggeration: the entire Biden Administration is the picture of futility and incompetence, mixed with corruption and persecution of its political opponents. This is no way to run a country or display to the world how an effective representative republic operates. It is no way to deter our enemies from taking bold steps. It is no way to guide us safely into the future.

Indeed, the entire world is now less safe.
