Statesmen vs. Politicians, Revisited

©2015 drkate

Over the past this blog has presented information on the stark contrast we have in our country between statesmen and politicians.  Through that lens, we turn again to list those qualities so as to separate the candidates we see before us today.

From an earlier post:

  • A Statesman loves the Constitution.

A Politician hates the Constitution.

  • A Statesman enforces the Constitution.

A Politician violates the Constitution.

  • A Statesman uses truth to keep power in the hands of the people.

A Politician uses lies to gain power over the people.

  • A Statesman‘s primary concern is to secure freedom for future generations.

A Politician’s primary concern is to get elected or re-elected.

  • Statesman will not play politics with the people’s money.

A Politician will buy votes with tax money.

  • A Statesman knows the people must control government.

A Politician believes that government should control people.

  • A Statesman knows the people must limit government’s power to tax.

A Politician believes government should have unlimited power to tax.

  • A Statesman gives his allegiance to the people and country.

A Politician gives his allegiance to government.

  • A Statesman will demand a balanced budget.

A Politician will spend money stolen from future generations(deficit spending).

  • A Statesman will cause peace.

A Politician will cause wars.

I think an important characteristic on this list is a love for and allegiance to the people and the Constitution for the United States.  Aside from Donald Trump in this election cycle, how many times have you heard any candidate ever in the past four decades express their love for America and her people?

I’ve created a poll for your consideration in ranking the current candidates as to their status as a politician or statesman.  You can vote for as many as you want, and multiple times.

And now let’s take a look at Trump’s speech today, October 31.  Its only scary for the republican elite!  🙂

    The names that are showing up on the poll so far include Trump, Carson, Cruz, Huckabee and Paul. Trump keeps saying “I’ve only been a politician for 3 months”…and I say, but he can’t be a total politician because he loves America and is telling the truth. Cruz is of course suspect (north american union) and ineligible.

    Trump has vision, which the others lack imho.

    In the meantime, the Bush boys are destroying eachother:

    Love to listen to Trump. The CFR and the handlers have to be shaking in their boots. Now, we have to figure out how to put a stop to the illegal, electronic voting booths.

    Manning has put out a lot of info on Carson.

    Why Obama and Hillary Must Stop Donald Trump at All Costs
    By Wayne Allyn Root July, 2015

  5. 9 heather November 1, 2015 at 9:33 pm

    This is exactly why our founders wrote Article 2 Section 1 of the Constitution that no one but a natural born citizen is eligible to be potus and veep–it all has to do with allegiance to America. Rubio is an anchor baby, his parents were not american citizens when he was born in the US. They did not naturalize until years after Rubio was born. Therefore Rubio holds no allegiance to America and we can see this now plain and simple with the amnesty he wants to make law. Strike this little pos traitor down, he doesn’t deserve to be a senator let alone potus

    How the poll is evolving:

    Trump, Huckabee, Carson/Cruz (tied), Paul in that order.

    A note on Cruz: I put him in the politician category because of the checklist above: a statesman enforces the constitution (Cruz is ineligible). A note on Carson–Manning’s video above, and does not know his way, imho.


    • 11 no-nonsense-nancy November 2, 2015 at 6:34 pm

      I could go for Trump/Huckabee

      • 12 heather November 2, 2015 at 8:43 pm

        NNN-I agree. Trump/Huckabee.
        Any more door knockers?

        • 13 no-nonsense-nancy November 4, 2015 at 7:05 am

          No Heather, not for about a week now. I guess they finally gave up on me. A friend of mine got a survey from another outfit, which she is ignoring, but the questions are unbelievable. She is mailing me a copy of it and I will post it here when I receive it. It is sort of a non electronic tracking system.

        The house members are so stupid, to vote him in. Was there not one true conservative interested in the speakership? They need to all be recalled.

        • 17 heather November 2, 2015 at 8:45 pm

          Marsha Blackburn was named to be voted for–she has perfect credentials and is a true conservative, she would have been perfect—oh but they don’t want perfection, they thrive on deception.

    This must be the 2030 agenda and if they think Americans are going to go along with this they are nuts. We are in so deep and barry drug us down further than all of the past potus’s.

    • 20 jj November 2, 2015 at 9:17 pm

      So someone does believe this nation will be functioning in 2030??? 🙂

    • 23 no-nonsense-nancy November 4, 2015 at 6:52 am

      I think they are already starting it. Those cards that grocery stores give you to swipe instead of coupons track what you purchase. The Wal-Mart near me has some self checkout registers. They had started making a couple of them take cards only until now, out of about 9 of them, only one will take cash. Is this getting us ready for the electronic payment only system? Wish I didn’t have to use that store but I have no other grocery store within 8 miles of me and so I get sucked in.

  10. 24 heather November 2, 2015 at 9:58 pm

    Did Russia do this, did the US? who did it?
    The debris field is loaded with bodies, and plane parts and misc items, where were these same items in our field in PA on 9/11. Nothing was ever recovered in Pa, no one saw anything but a billow of smoke. surely there would be a debris field….no there wasn’t. Was there really a plane that went down or was it faked since the world was now in shock.

    • 25 no-nonsense-nancy November 3, 2015 at 3:38 am

      I would never go to the “memorial” at Johstown, as close as it is, because I never believed that anyone died there. There are too many holes in that story. And you are right, Heather, there were no bodies, luggage or debris. Not even a doll or teddy bear to tug at our heart strings. It was a missile, the same as the Pentagon.

      • 26 heather November 3, 2015 at 7:03 am

        NNN-thanks – I agree. I guess they figured everyone would be watching NYC and wouldn’t pay attention or question the one in Pa.

  11. 27 drkate November 2, 2015 at 10:57 pm

    Important news about the poll!

    Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton are tied at 2% thinking they are statesmen! Is this a “surge”????

    I found this quite interesting. Believe or not–God does talk to us.

  16. 33 drkate November 3, 2015 at 6:12 pm

    A question for you all: Rand Paul is polling at 7% above, with Trump and Huckabee still at the top. What is the problem with Rand Paul, his campaign…? Would you consider him “low energy”? Or is the press just giving him extra ignoring?

    • 34 heather November 3, 2015 at 8:01 pm

      I think it’s more the MSM doesn’t like him because of his father–and Rand–makes a lot of sense with most of his ideas and “our” wants. He is definitely not a socialist or a liberal for sure. He is very old fashioned which is a good thing and so in Huckabee who I respect a great deal. Rubio is moving up and he must be stopped along with Cruz, and the rest will just fall off by themselves.

  17. 35 heather November 3, 2015 at 8:33 pm

    This is an excellent article and one that should be read–it’s short and to the point.

  18. 36 heather November 4, 2015 at 8:16 am

    Rubio has a real problem–reading his fb pages everyone is questioning his NBC–he needs to bow out he has too much allegiance to Cuba with most of his desires.

  19. 38 A Crazy Old Coot November 4, 2015 at 4:07 pm

    I still wonder how two Cuban citizens can have a Natural Born American Citizen. Also, how does a Cuban father, American (maybe) mother have a Natural Born American citizen in Canada.

    Any suggestions??

    • 39 drkate November 4, 2015 at 6:11 pm

      Hey Coot! Very good to see you!

      No idea how Rubio can even look at himself in the mirror. What a crock!

      • 40 heather November 4, 2015 at 7:41 pm

        Hey Coot! Good to see you its been a while hope you are well.

        I posted all over their fb pages today that Cruz and Rubio and Jindal were not NBC and gave full explanations and posted not my potus from the blog roll here. Had a lot of hits with people who GOT that and know it….so its going viral, but the media has to fake their poll #s to out do Trump because jeb is done!

        • 41 drkate November 4, 2015 at 8:58 pm

          BRAVO! Good work

            • 43 heather November 4, 2015 at 10:29 pm

              It’s a very scary situation that we would be in. Trump has to knock Rubio out of the race and Trump is on the war path about Rubio. I have said it before and will say it again. Rubio’s blood and roots are Cuban and he will definitely bring full amnesty for his Hispanic people. Rubio has no allegiance to America. I don’t think Cruz would, I think Cruz is sincere. I think even Trump thinks this of Cruz. We have got to get Rubio out. Everyone please go to Dr. Kate’s blog roll and start posting He’s not my president but open the link about Natural Born Citizen and post that everywhere. You will be surprised the amount of people who are still stupid and don’t know this and that article is perfect to spread.

              If you all have a facebook page of friends or family post it all there but get it out there immediately. We cannot afford to lose this time.

              Trump has to win and we have to set the wheels in motion so the media shuts up.

              Rubio was born in the US but his parents were illegal immigrants from Cuba and left because of Baptiste who was a massive dictator. They came here, and when news hit that Castro was taking over, they went back only to find Cuba was never going to be free, so they came back here again and Marco was born, and the parents never naturalized until well after Marco was born. He is NOT a natural born citizen and technically he is an anchor baby. He was born here making him American but he is not a NBC.

              The only one that knock Hillary out is Trump, and Trump knows this. Hell, everyone knows this. We must have Trump as potus and he has to do 2 terms to fix this mess and bring the republican party back together so we can stay in power. NO more radical liberals.

              • 44 heather November 4, 2015 at 10:36 pm

                Post Chapter 2 first(open the link and post the article) then post the first page which has all of the links. People need to know and they want to know they don’t want to make another mistake with their vote.

        • 45 foxyladi14 November 5, 2015 at 1:46 pm

          I’m ok. Thanks for asking. My eyes limit what I do, so I read some and go rest. LOL

  20. 48 no-nonsense-nancy November 5, 2015 at 6:49 am

    Is ‘not my potus’ a blog? I can’t find it on the blog roll.

  21. 52 no-nonsense-nancy November 5, 2015 at 5:13 pm

    Is it just me or is Ben Carson getting weirder all the time? Last I heard King Tut wasn’t found in a vat of wheat.–election.html

  22. 54 no-nonsense-nancy November 5, 2015 at 6:50 pm

    In Minor vs Happerset part of the opinion at the end reads, “children that are born in the United States without reference to the citizenship of the parents are NOT WITHOUT DOUBT citizens”. Wouldn’t this relate to ‘anchor babies’? Where do people justify that anchor babies are citizens and should be able to stay here? Does Rubio have to go back? Send him back!

    • 55 heather November 5, 2015 at 7:01 pm

      Rubio is an anchor baby technically–born on us soil to 2 illegal immigrant parents same as Jindal. cruz at least has a natural born citizen mother–but his father did not naturalize until a few years ago.

      If anyone here watched the last debate, Cruz had a slip of tongue about his parents and his own citizenship. He said, when he was 3 his father left them and then caught what he was saying and backtracked to say something entirely different. If I knew exactly where in the debate he said that I would watch that part–but I am not up to watching a 2 hr debate. And of course by now, CNBC has had plenty of time to delete that statement.

      • 56 no-nonsense-nancy November 5, 2015 at 7:56 pm

        Heather, his father did leave them. I’m pretty sure he went back to Cuba and worked for Castro for a few years. I’ll research it.

        I did post the nbc issue on my FB page. One person ‘liked’ it so far. I’m sure most of my family members will say they wouldn’t think of voting for a repub anyway!.

        • 57 heather November 5, 2015 at 8:54 pm

          NNN-well Cruz did give a slip of the tongue and you could just feel his throat closing on that when it came out and it was very noticeable. NNN–keep posting that link everywhere eventually you will have others posting research they have found.

          • 58 no-nonsense-nancy November 6, 2015 at 5:47 pm

            Only one person has noticed it so far. I still cherish my 5 or so minutes with Cruz this summer telling him all the reasons why he is not eligible for POTUS!

            • 59 heather November 6, 2015 at 8:04 pm

              Did you tell him to his face? What did he say?

              • 60 no-nonsense-nancy November 12, 2015 at 10:23 am

                Yes, Heather, I was at an event where he was speaking and he was going around meeting people and shaking hands. Very uncharacteristic for me, I nudged my way in to get to him and asked him to verify that he was born in Canada, which he did. I then asked him how he thinks he is eligible to be president. He started a rhetoric which I’m sure he is used to giving by now. He said his mother was an American citizen, at which I said but his father wasn’t. He then started in on John McCain being born in Panama and I said he isn’t natural born either and why.. All this time he never let go of my hand which he had shaken. Two aids in front of him were telling him to move on and he kept telling them to wait. He really wanted to convince me that he can be pres. I don’t remember the whole conversation but I did ask him if he has read Vattel and he said that our constitution is not based on writings of foreigners! Do you believe it? Then an aid behind him told me that I should read the Harvard Law review, at which point I told him that Harvard is not telling the truth. That’s when they finally got him to move on. Even knowing all the negative things about him and why we don’t want him as POTUS, when you are up close and personal with him he is very charming and cute! I can see how people can get enthused over him. He likes attention and he is a smooth talker.

        “cruz at least has a natural born citizen mother”

        We can’t be sure about that. She may have taken Canadian citizenship. State dept won’t release any records. Did she register his birth at the American Embasssy?? No one knows.

      • 68 A Crazy Old Coot November 9, 2015 at 12:27 pm

        Don’t forget, Cruz didn’t know he was a Canadian citizen until he decided to run for President, then he decided to renounce his Canadian citizenship (if he actually did).

    • 70 heather November 6, 2015 at 2:25 pm

      I heard and read this all day–Rush broke the entire story down and it was politico who fabricated it and cnn ran with it. Ben Carson is not an evil man and the media has now portrayed him as such.

      Although I am not voting for him, he is far from evil and devious and this is their way of getting rid of him to lighten the load of the candidates. No one needs to have their name smeared thru the mud and the media sure should have done it with barry soetore which they have refused to do–racist towards barry but not carson…the media has had close to 8 yrs to vet and smear barry but their boy is golden.

      I guess up next is Cruz and Rubio because they know Donald J Trump isn’t going anywhere and they know he will not be intimidated by the msm, he will fight back.

      I feel sorry for Carson that they did this.

  23. 74 A Crazy Old Coot November 6, 2015 at 2:43 pm

    I have a few questions.

    1. Why does a Senator and Representative only have to be a citizen and the President has to be a Natural Born Citizen?

    2. If all someone had to be is a citizen, why did the Founding Fathers add the grandfather clause to the requirements for President? Once the Constitution was signed, they were all citizens.

    3. How do two foreign citizen parents give birth to a Natural Born American Citizen?

    4. How does a baby born to a foreign father in a foreign country ever be considered a Natural Born Citizen?

    5. How does a person become President when all records of his past are sealed and no one knows where he was born, when he was born, how he got into college, how he gets a Social Security Number that was assigned to another person.

    Just wondering.

    • 75 heather November 6, 2015 at 8:15 pm

      Coot–ok I will do my best to answer since Dr. Kate can’t type.

      1. The President has to be a NBC to hold total allegiance to America.

      2. No they have to be NBC – go to the blog roll on the side of this page and read, he’s not my president–The NBC Book–click on the link they provide and then click on#2 the NBC book. All answers are there.

      3. They don’t and they can’t. In order for the child to be a NBC BOTH parents must be American citizens and that is naturalization.

      4. That baby is not a NBC ever. The parents have to have naturalized prior to the birth of that baby on US soil only.

      5. Obama won’t answer this question. (lol)

      6. Read the NBC book from the blog roll.

    Hi. I’m Cj from the Heyoka Patriots blog. I read here frequently but don’t comment often. Dr. Kate have you or any of you, have heard anything from Troy recently? He has not posted on the Heyoka blog since Oct.22 and it is highly unusual because he is the administrator for us. We have emailed and called him, but no answer from him. We’re very worried something has happened to him so I thought I’d come over and ask here if anyone has heard from him since Oct. 22. Thanks!

      Russia aided us in our war for Independence? I must have been absent on that day in 7th grade history. Although I agree with much of what he says, I don’t feel that we have been any more imperialistic than he has. I am so sick of all of this fighting over oil. What he is doing to “protect” Assad is for oil, too. The west is being overrun by Islamists wanting our demise and all for oil. If we can get Trump elected he will go ahead with the pipe line and we can get rid of our dependency of the ME oil.

      Everyone needs to boycott Google. I haven’t used it for years myself, but they are in cahoots with the liberals big time to fix the election so Clinton will get in. I got the latest info on that from Canada Free Press.

            Years ago I was ironing and the water bubbled out of the iron and hit the top of my hand where all the tender skin is. Well once it hit I shook it off and immediately the entire top of my hand melted down to tissue–3rd degree burns! I caught my doctor just as he was leaving for the day, so he started debreeding it and smeared it with silvadine cream and wrapped it up. The pain was horrendous and went straight up my arm. Those types of burns are wide open for infection so keeping it bandaged was a must. Everyday for 6 wks I went to his office for debreeding and more silvadine and rewrapping. I knew my hand was going to be horribly scarred since that skin is so tender. But the silvadine is a perfect healer of burns and of course debreeding and keeping it wrapped helped. Today 33 yrs later the skin is a little wrinkled but no scarring. Burns are the worst.

            Back then I was a single mom and a bartender and was on my way getting ready for work when it happened and did manage to go to work.

            Take care of that burn Dr. Kate and make sure you follow doctors orders!!

        That is good. Most people today don’t even know who Rod Sterling was.

    To all the vets on this site, I want to say THANK YOU! Many of you came back from Viet Nam to a unwelcoming nation. I am sorry for that. You deserved much better treatment and I hope that this late Welcome will help. Welcome Home, heros.

    I don’t know who is and who is not a vet, so I will not try to name names. Just rest assured that I respect you and if I could would stand at attention and give you a very smart hand salute.

    May God bless you.

    • 116 no-nonsense-nancy November 10, 2015 at 5:18 pm

      My sentiment to, coot!

      • 117 heather November 10, 2015 at 10:48 pm

        Coot—thank you. All though I am not a vet I am the daughter of a 32 year Navy vet. My first husband was drafted right out of high school into the Navy Seals in 1969 right at the height of the war. He was MIA for a long time and never the same when he came home. My current husband for the past 25+ years was drafted and was an army ranger green beret and even back then they were made to sign secret no talk statements for 20 yrs–and when those 20 years were up, he let loose and hasn’t stopped since. Thankfully he came back as a whole person, mentally, physically and emotionally.

        Vietnam was the beginning of the political wars and they haven’t stopped since and when Trump says we don’t win anymore, he is 110% right.

  38. 118 no-nonsense-nancy November 11, 2015 at 6:22 am

    Well, I watched the debate last night because Fox made it easy to stream it. They should have weeded it out more. Why is that Kasich still there. He is so obnoxious and is very low in the ratings. And Fiorina should go. She continually buts in. Trump even called her on it. It as funny. Paul should go now. His ratings are so low and he has nothing good to say. Two, as we know, aren’t even eligible. And Jeb Bush must really embarrass the establishment. I know why they keep him there but his ratings are lower than some who were relegated to the “kiddie” table. Carson is getting on my nerves. He was never presidential material. I think he was sort of pressured into running. I used to get emails from John Phillip Souza the 4th asking me to encourage him to run. I never did, but there was a group who were putting a lot of pressure on him. Trump is the only one worth listening to and he wasn’t given much time. That moderating panel was a little better than the others but they still allowed it to get out of control a few times with the blowhards. The men were fine but that woman really showed her bias. Rubio is so disgusting and with his low ratings he should go. Why don’t any of them call the three ineligible ones on it? I don’t even count Santorum as a candidate. These people are just wasting the money of their dinars. It amazes me that anyone wastes their money on them.

    I guess I am finished with my rant. If you actually read it all, thank you.

    • 119 A Crazy Old Coot November 11, 2015 at 10:27 am

      “you actually read it all, thank you.”

      It took me some doing, but I did it. You’re welcome.

    • 120 heather November 11, 2015 at 3:08 pm

      NNN–I totally agree and I watched the entire debate too and actually I thought it was the best one so far. Trump knew what he was doing and he wont open his mouth unless he knows exactly what will push his numbers up. Carly, Kasich, Rubio, Cruz, Carson, Paul, Christi, Santorum and Jindal have to go. I like Huckabee and he would be good but I want Trump for potus and Huckabee can be his vp.

      Trump was right on China when he was talking about money manipulation being done by that twerp chinaman, I see it when the market opens and closes and anyone with any business sense also know this to be true. Trump was right on that trade bill that Rand said he was wrong on. Trump knows his stuff and talking points. Rand pissed me off with that.

      Kasich pissed me off with the immigration saying Trump can’t send 11 million back because of the kids. The moderator was talking about the 5 mil that the scotus ruled on not 11 so Kasich was wrong and someone else butted in and raised it to 12 mil–again morons, it was 5 mil they were talking about and Trump was right again. And who cares about their kids, they are not our kids and we should not be held responsible to support them with welfare/ss/medicare/Medicaid. They need to be deported kids included. Anchor babies are not American citizens.

      Carson IMO is a plant I think planted by the dems–after all he was always a dem until he changed this year so he could run as potus. My guts tell me is a plant to keep obamas agenda.

      • 121 no-nonsense-nancy November 11, 2015 at 3:55 pm

        Heather, you are right on everything. I too, like Huckabee. I would have liked to have him there more than those other morons. As far as I’m concerned I don’t think they need any more debates. I’ll actually be glad when the primaries start so the debates end. They can get them all out of our country easily and I’m sure Trump knows how. Cut out all of these benefits we are paying for, start treating them like the invaders they are, and they will go on their own. It’s pretty simple, really.

        • 122 Jan November 11, 2015 at 5:29 pm

          I totally agree
          Start mandatory E-Verify (you know the program that flagged obat?
          No food stamps
          No housing assistance
          No work
          No Utilities
          No welfare
          No medical except for extreme emergency and that does not include having a baby.
          (Currently, If a pregnant woman comes to the states in her 6th month, she is given full welfare including medical from day one, the baby gets free care for 6-months then they are both eligible for full welfare.

          Cut all that off and let it be known through ads in different languages and they will leave and others will not come in the first place.

          A few years ago my oldest son got a piece of metal in his eye. We took him to emergency (room full and sitting on the floor, Mexicans), before they would let the doctor see my son we had to pay $500.00 since he had no medical insurance. For a total of 10-minutes with the doc as he removed the metal and put in drops as the metal had already begun to rust, the total bill was $2,500.00.

        • 123 foxyladi14 November 12, 2015 at 1:01 pm

          Yes!! Thy are getting like a bad rerun. 😦

        • 124 heather November 12, 2015 at 2:52 pm

          NNN-stop their benefits and give them to us, the seniors who now have a higher premium starting in Jan 2016 for medicare. I am sick of outsiders getting what WE worked and paid for.

          I spent all morning on the phone with SS/Medicare to get the right answers for the increase. My husband stills works ft and we have his work insurance until sometime next year when he retires, which means we will pay the higher premium that Boehner and Obama snuck in the day Boehner left office. The Part B is $104 and for those already on medicare it will stay the same but those who are not, like us will increase to 122 a month and yet they don’t give a cost of living raise to cover it and actually all of medicare is very expensive, A has deductibles, B is the 122 a mo, D is whatever for drugs and then you have the supplement to cover the 20% that medicare doesn’t cover. Who dreamed this plan up, its way to expensive and I don’t know how seniors are paying for all of this once they retire. If Obama gets his way we will be over priced to the point where seniors cant pay any of it.

          Trump promised to fix obamacare and hopefully he can fix medicare to our advantage.

          I’m ready to vote now, I don’t need another year!!

          • 125 no-nonsense-nancy November 12, 2015 at 9:51 pm

            Me too, Heather! I think my medicare is about $112, but not sure.
            Sometimes I just wish Jesus would come and put all the criminals in jail!

    Just my opinion:

    Well, veterans Day is over, so back to the every day routine. Vets can just go to the back burner again.

    Sorry people, but we only matter one day a year and thats just another day for the stores to try to make more money and politicians to give fancy speeches that they don’t mean.
    However, I still respect and honor all that you have done for this country in spite of the lack of leadership in DC. Thank you once again.

  41. 133 heather November 13, 2015 at 7:00 pm

    Ok now that ISIS has invaded France—Paris is on lock down from the strikes from ISIS that Obama and the CIA trained and groomed. Sorry for the people who were killed but personally this was all planned from the start and these leaders knew this would happen yet they allowed these so called refugees to invade their countries like flies on shit.

    Sweden is the only country that is fighting back–the people have burned down all of refugee camps……..send them all back to Syria and bomb them all to hell right there. Round them all up from EU and the US and deport them to Syria. See Trump was right.

    When we see videos or pictures of nothing but men walking hundreds and hundreds of miles with no female family members or kids, that’s an invasion and they area part of these terrorists.

    This is a total set up by Obama and the muslimbrotherhood to have these barbaric filthy satanic sand rats invade for their caliphate and now it starts…..

    • 134 no-nonsense-nancy November 13, 2015 at 8:28 pm

      You are right. that was the first thing I thought of. And I was just reading where on this date, also a Friday the 13th, 708 years ago the crusades started. They should have killed all the muslims and not allowed one of them to survive!.

      • 135 heather November 13, 2015 at 9:07 pm

        I so agree!

        • 136 no-nonsense-nancy November 13, 2015 at 9:26 pm

          and the protestors at MSU are ticked off that the Paris attacks have taken the spotlight away from them! You just can’t make this shit up!!!

          • 137 heather November 13, 2015 at 10:48 pm

            awwww that’s just too bad–goes to show what babies their parents raised–and again, its all about them. They don’t belong in college –they need to go back to kindergarten and start over. I have no patience for stupidity.

  42. 138 Moriah November 13, 2015 at 9:53 pm

    Well, if you’ve never heard of Kelly Greenhill and her Weapons of Mass Migration, read all about it here:

    It really is about the corporate fascists scalping every single hair from every single human…destroying nationhoods, cultures, and the very planet in the process.

    It ties it all together…”global warming” – geoengineering – engineered mass migration – using technology to take down the banks and create mass chaos, death, and destruction. Gotta love those creative Satanists.

  43. 139 no-nonsense-nancy November 14, 2015 at 8:18 am

    That is a very telling article, Moriah, and welcome to our little group here.

    Why am I not surprised that Soros and the CIA are behind all of this? He is so evil. I can see how he would be in cahoots with Merkel. She is a commie, raised and educated in East Germany, like she was. You would think Soros is some kind of god the way he thinks he can dictate who lives where on the planet. The real God probably has some very nice plans for the likes of him in the future. I really pray for all the poor souls on this earth. .

  44. 143 no-nonsense-nancy November 14, 2015 at 12:14 pm

    Paris- another false flag? of course. France had already planned on closing their borders prior to the upcoming climate event next month because they knew there would be a lot of protests. Rothchild was involved. Cui bono, who benefits? State sponsored, but which state? A lot of information in activist post today.

    Dr. Kate, I have to bring bad news and I’m sorry. Troy has died. We just found out and I thought I would come and let you know. Not sure what happened, but he was found sitting in his chair by his computer with a cup of tea and bowl of ice cream next to him, untouched. Seems it was very sudden. We are all in shock at Heyoka’s. Please think of him and remember the good person he was.


    • 152 drkate November 15, 2015 at 4:44 pm

      CJ, oh my, my sincere condolences and thank you for letting us know. Prayers and gratitude for him, and for all. Please let us know how we can help, remember, celebrate. Thank you.

    Ben Carson to Katie Couric on his attempted stabbing as a teen:

    On Carson’s refusal to give the name of the person he tried to stab as a teenager, he told Couric he would reveal the name with conditions: “I do have this deal to make. If the media will promise that they will not bother this person or any of the other people, and if they promise that they will be honest, truthful and apply everything to everyone equally from now on, I will reveal the truth. Is that fair?”

    Am I reading this right? Did he try to stab other people as well? This is a weird, dangerous person and one we do not want in our government

    Is he stupid enough to think that the media would keep it quiet and not bother that person or persons if he revealed the identity to them?

    • 157 drkate November 15, 2015 at 6:29 pm

      people are falling in love with carson’s “biography”, not positions, so this guy is not someone who should be near anything. I think its a race thing too most people would not admit it but its still trying to prove they’re not racist…by voting for yet another “black man”.

      • 160 heather November 15, 2015 at 8:09 pm

        Certainly anyone that “confesses” to an attempted murder is a criminal even after all of these years. Knowing that he was planning on running for potus, one would think you sure wouldn’t “air” your dirty laundry in book for everyone to read.

        I wonder if he will be arrested for attempted murder now.

        • 161 drkate November 15, 2015 at 8:29 pm

          and what would happen if a white republican had said that was their childhood? They wouldn’t be allowed to run.

          • 162 heather November 15, 2015 at 8:44 pm

            Exactly…They would investigate him and his past, and possibly throw him in prison.

            But who in their right mind would confess this in a book knowing they would run for potus. Does he think because he’s black he is untouchable?

            I still think he is a democrat plant sent to protect and defend obamas socialists policies against Hillary. What better way to assure a win for Obama than to have a so called conservative republican vs Hillary–either way the dems would win.

        • 163 A Crazy Old Coot November 16, 2015 at 12:49 pm

          My thought on this is: If he knew he was going to run for President, he put this out in a book to get ahead of the media that would surely dig it up. After all, he’s not Obama, they will research everything about him and put the worst spin possible on it.

          BTW: I’m a Trump supporter for now and just wanted to try to be fair.

  48. 165 no-nonsense-nancy November 15, 2015 at 10:55 pm

    According to Ann Coulter Paris has given Trump the presidency because of his statements. If he doesn’t get the nomination we should organize a massive write-in vote for him. The real polls show he is way ahead of the others.

  49. 167 drkate November 16, 2015 at 11:26 am

    Folks, comments are still open for another few days. I have a post coming up very soon. Thanks.

  51. 176 no-nonsense-nancy November 16, 2015 at 8:09 pm

    He makes us so ashamed of him. Shit ass Obama was late and missed the moment of silence for Paris at the beginning of the G 20 Summit.

    Of course we know he is the head of ISIS.

  52. 179 no-nonsense-nancy November 16, 2015 at 9:37 pm

    There seems to be some confusion over the governors of the states who are saying they will not take Obama’s Syrians into their states, if they have a right to deny the entrants of these people. Have they not heard of the 10th amendment? There are now 13 states saying they will not admit them. Unfortunately mine is not one of them. We have a very libtard governor. I know the 10th is for laws which they deem unconstitutional but it still should give them the right to refuse these “refugees”. What do you say, Kate?

    • 180 heather November 16, 2015 at 10:12 pm

      I know, I keep posting that these governors have the right to refuse these invaders and for them to invoke the 10th amendment as it was written for just this purpose and is perfectly legal for them to do so.

      My governor has not joined in with refusing them either–she said she wants Obama to suspend accepting them but that Oklahoma would accept them–she is supposed to be a conservative republican…….and just proved for the last time what a liar she is. This is her final term.

  53. 181 heather November 16, 2015 at 9:41 pm

    Proof that Jindal, Cruz, Rubio and Santorum need to step down from the potus campaign.!!

    • 182 A Crazy Old Coot November 17, 2015 at 12:08 pm

      Santorum is qualified. His father was naturalized through his father. The rumor of his father becoming a citizen after his birth was based on a letter his father wrote to Immigration requesting documentation. Apparently that was spun to make it look like he was getting naturalized.

      I can’t explain any better. My eyes are getting tired already.

      • 183 heather November 17, 2015 at 1:28 pm

        I had read that Rick Santorum said he did not know if his parents were naturalized because their paper work was lost. So he himself said it.

  54. 184 heather November 16, 2015 at 10:07 pm

    is anyone sick of this pos yet?

  55. 187 no-nonsense-nancy November 17, 2015 at 9:04 am

    And it gets worse. Past time to throw him out! I maintain my belief that we need millions of Americans marching on DC and demanding his removal to prison!

  56. 189 foxyladi14 November 17, 2015 at 1:31 pm

    Here is the problem. 👿

  57. 190 Jan November 17, 2015 at 2:07 pm

    Ben Carson Is Part Of An Evil Nazi Cult, Donald Trump Is Right, Carson Is A Pathological Liar, Trump Will Crush Carson

    • 191 heather November 17, 2015 at 2:47 pm

      I still think Carson is a democrat plant put into the GOP to win the election and continue obamas agenda if Hillary doesn’t win. This way the dems have secured their communist agenda regardless of party. The dems also used Carson’s color as their ace in the hole. After all who wouldn’t vote for another black man.

  58. 192 Jan November 17, 2015 at 4:10 pm

    Jindal just suspended his campaign

  59. 199 Tiger 7 November 18, 2015 at 9:05 am

    As the end of the bho fiasco approaches it should becomes more apparent what his mission has been. Glen Beck recently very well presented the summary of his accomplishments—presented as his failures. I have felt from the early days of his tenure that his seeming blunders were not so much the errors of a clown but the accomplishments of a planned attack on our country.
    I hold out the hope that the upsurge of anti-Western violence and the lack of rational response by the current administration will precipitate some clearer thinking on the part of the American public.
    If only someone had the courage to call bho what he actually is instead of merely calling him a weak idiot.

    • 200 no-nonsense-nancy November 18, 2015 at 10:48 am

      People are chicken. They are afraid of being called racist. Call me a racist, I don’t care because I and my Lord know I’m not!

    The final poll results:

    Donald Trump 54%
    Mike Huckabee 14%
    Ted Cruz 11%
    Ben Carson 7%
    Rand Paul 5%

    Notable at zero: Christy, O’Malley, Bush, Webb, all scoring below “other”
