The RED WAVE is NOT Guaranteed

24 05 2022

  By Timothy D. Naegele[1]

This is a warning issued by Mike Huckabee, former Governor of Arkansas and candidate for the Republican Party presidential nomination in both 2008 and 2016[2], which states:

While I was in Israel recently, I was asked by Israeli friends how the elections would turn out in America this fall. My response was that Republicans will win in a blowout unless they fail to come up a cohesive message other than, “Hey we aren’t THOSE guys who doubled your gas prices, jacked up groceries by 20%, and who opened the borders to illegals but busted the supply of baby formula.” The policies of the leftist Democrats have finally become untenable for common-sense loving Americans who unlike Joe Biden’s recent nominee to the Supreme Court DO know what a woman is. The Democrats have gone into a wild irrational rage about abortion, calling it “health care for women,” even though at least one person dies every time there is an abortion. They claim that 4 and 5 year old children ought to be taught about gender fluidity before they learn their numbers, colors, and letters of the alphabet. Most Americans know that’s not just bad policy, it’s insanity. And working-class Americans have grown tired of the elitists from Hollywood and Washington lecturing about climate change and carbon footprints when the same hypocritical snobs fly around the globe in fuel-sucking, carbon emitting private jets and upon landing, ride in long black limousines while owning 4 or 5 homes.

The demands to tax more don’t go over well with anyone who owns a business or is trying to get kids to school each day and feed them each evening, but Republicans need to focus on what they will stand FOR if given the majorities in the House and Senate. Keep in mind, that even if the GOP takes both houses, they won’t be able to pass legislation because Joe Biden isn’t likely to sign anything that makes energy cheaper, houses more affordable, or our borders more secure. Biden’s party still wants to pursue truly crazy policies like Critical Race Theory that indoctrinates schoolchildren to believe that all white children are evil oppressors and that our nation is systemically racist and bad, despite it being the ONE place on earth where people of every color risk their very lives to get to because they believe America is still a great country where freedom and opportunity awaits.

Republicans should tell America that if elected, they will pursue the following things and force Joe Biden to either sign the legislation or explain to struggling American why not:

1. We will finish the border wall, enforce immigration laws, and stop the flow of deadly drugs and human trafficking of small children to become sex slaves for the drug cartels.

2. We will support our military by giving them leaders who believe that a military being deadly is more important than being diverse. That means people are promoted because they are the best, not because they are the right color, gender, or sexual identity.

3. We will value all life from conception because we don’t think any human life is disposable or expendable.

4. We will work toward a completely different tax system like the Fair Tax in which we pay taxes on what we consume and not what we produce. We would get rid of the death tax and capital gains taxes because we shouldn’t punish productivity.

5. We will follow the Constitution and allow the states to govern themselves without the federal government mandating the minutia.

6. We will not tolerate violent crime and letting killers and thugs back on the streets to repeat their attacks on the law-abiding public. We all should have an expectation to walk in our neighborhood, ride a subway or bus, or get from their car to the front door of a grocery store without being assaulted.

7. We will renew energy independence by re-starting the Keystone XL pipeline, drilling on federal lands, and extracting the oil and natural gas under our own feet and re-starting a long-term nuclear energy capacity.

The country is in a mess and while Biden and the Democrats blame Putin, Trump, or anyone but themselves, we all know they OWN the results of their policies.

But we the people own the elections with our votes. And the country doesn’t belong to the politicians but the people. Always has; always will![3]

Governor Huckabee’s words need to be heeded, not ignored.  Lots of us began as Democrats, but left the party years ago when it veered so far to the left that it was unrecognizable.  We became Independents, and proudly so, or Republicans.

We are the inheritors of a great nation, consisting of Americans of different colors, religions and ethnicities.  However, with few exceptions, we want America to survive and prosper for the rest of our lives and that of our loved ones.[4]

And yes, Vladimir Putin’s war is raging in Ukraine, and courageous Ukrainians have shown the world that freedom is precious and worth fighting for; and they are an inspiration.[5]  China threatens Taiwan, while North Korea is engaged in sable-rattling.  The Coronavirus pandemic continues to raise its ugly head, while many Americans wish it was long gone, and act accordingly.

Real, long lasting change will never come to this country until we, as citizens, fulfill our duty by doing what politicians do not expect us to do, and that is, actually hold them accountable for their actions. Personally, I’m sick and tired of the RINO establishment of the Lindsey Graham, Kevin McCarthy, Mitch McConnel types. They are slightly better than the wacko Democrats, but not by much. That’s why when it comes to politics, I’m at best an agnostic, i.e., prove to me what you are by your actions, not by your rhetoric.

By the way, I don’t trust the mainstream media either. Consequently, I’ve been reading quite a bit on the war in Ukraine (which you mentioned above) … from other perspectives.

Here is just one from the American Thinker that I think is worthwhile to read. As is true in all wars, ‘truth always becomes the first casualty.’

Putin is Fighting the War He Chooses by Ernest Sipes

Thank you, Ray, as always.

I agree with your first paragraph almost completely. You neglected to add Mitt Romney to the list, the consummate carpetbagger from Massachusetts and RINO. Also, I became an Independent when I left the U.S. Senate because I had seen too much of both parties.

See, e.g., https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2010/09/24/washington-is-sick-and-the-american-people-know-it/ (“Washington Is Sick And The American People Know It”)

I agree with your comment about the media as well.

With respect to Sipes, I have never heard of him; and he seems like a Russian apologist.

As I have said elsewhere at this blog, many times, I studied the Soviet economy as an undergraduate in college, and concluded then that it was a “house of cards.” Thus, when it collapsed, I was not surprised. Indeed, I was in Berlin to cheer it on, as Soviet troops were selling their uniforms and plumbing fixtures from their barracks, and retreating to “tent cities” in the USSR.

Then, I had a secretary in Washington, D.C., who had been a young girl in Berlin when the the Soviet troops overran that city at the end of World War II, and raped an estimated 2 million German women.

They are animals, who deserve no mercy, much less praise. I have followed Putin since his rise to power with Boris Yeltsin, and have written about him extensively.

See, e.g.,
https://naegeleblog.wordpress.com/2010/02/09/russias-putin-is-a-killer/ (“Russia’s Putin Is A Killer”)

The sooner he dies, the better; and it is my fervent hope that Russia will implode, and become a series of small nations, never to rise again.

And yes, these are my prejudices. Perhaps it is too much to say (or believe) that the only good Russian is a dead Russian, but I am not far from that conclusion.

Donald Trump Speaks Before The Biggest Crowd In Wyoming’s History

See https://www.rsbnetwork.tv/apps/3578/142719/167064/47010445

Having watched many if not most of the Trump rallies since his quest for the presidency began, it is fair to say that he remains in top form.

If there is a “red wave” in November’s elections, it will likely be because of his efforts . . . and the abject failures of the Biden-Harris administration on all fronts.
