Glenn Beck Is 'Off The Reservation' This Time

Last week Glenn Beck decided to engage in a 'what if' conversation about Donald Trump with fiction writer Brad Thor that I really didn't understand the need for. I believe the conversation went something like this ...

What if Donald J. Trump is elected President and then decided to suspend the constitution? Ultimately the conversation got around to: Should he be assassinated if he were to do something like that?

The whole thing was ridiculous. I even said to someone at the time that I thought Beck was "off the reservation."

There isn't enough to discuss about Trump that is based on actual fact that he had to go into the realm of the absurd?

Beck has made it abundantly clear that he disagrees with Trump on just about everything and despises him to boot.

I believe that because of his obvious dislike for Trump, Beck has decided that this is the year for him and perhaps a number of his sycophants to stand by their conservative ideals and only vote for someone who, in large measure, shares those ideals.

I understand that desire and would love to find someone in every political race who shared all of my ideals.

In past years it has been hard to hold my nose and vote for RINO's like George H.W. Bush, Bob Dole, John McCain, and Mitt Romney, but I managed to do it.

The problem is that there are generally only a couple viable options. I have to decide who has the county's best interests at heart or, at the very minimum, who will do the least damage. The choice is to vote for the lesser of two evils or stay home

Staying home is not an option for me. If I stay home it means that whatever voice I have isn't heard at all.

Cauliflower, Brussels sprouts or starve.....

This year's presidential election, while there are many pressing issues facing the country, is about who do I want to nominate the next Supreme Court justice(s) for the next 4 years and the answer is crystal clear.

Hillary Clinton, Donald J. Trump or starve.....

Anybody But Joe 'Go Along To Get Along' Heck

I'm in the backseat of a car and I give the keys to someone who will likely drive it off a cliff, and the car is ultimately driven off a cliff. The question for 'Go Along To Get Along' Joe is: Am I responsible for my own demise?

Congressman Joe Heck, (RINO-NV) thinks he should be the next Senator from Nevada and apparently he thinks he is going to harass me into supporting him with unending phone calls from mindless supporters. One must remember that 'Go Along To Get Along' Joe voted for John 'Cry Baby' Boehner when he was running for re-election as speaker of the House.

'Cry Baby' Boehner was always afraid to stand up to HRH Obama and any time there were any negotiations with HRH 'Cry Baby' Boehner gave away the farm.

It wasn't too long after his re-election as speaker that 'Cry Baby' Boehner had an epiphany and resigned from Congress but he just couldn't help himself and he proceeded to engineer the 2016 budget deal on his way out, giving HRH Obama virtually everything he wanted and, of course, funding for Planned Parenthood and ObamaCare through the end of Obama's term in office. The budget passed with the Democrats and a few Republicans supporting it. Knowing full well that the budget deal would pass, 'Go Along To Get Along' Joe voted against Boehner's budget deal, giving Heck political cover, but the damage had already been done.

A wise person once said from the podium in the White House briefing room, "Elections have consequences."

In this case, electing John 'Cry Baby' Boehner had huge consequences!

Planned Parenthood kills hundreds of thousands of babies every year with the continued help of our tax dollars. Thanks 'Go Along To Get Along' Joe and 'Cry Baby' Boehner!

As far as ObamaCare goes or doesn't go, all anyone has to do is ask how their state run ObamaCare is faring. Many are bankrupt or on the verge of bankruptcy and insurance rates are skyrocketing. The 'private' insurance companies managing ObamaCare are drowning in red ink. Thanks 'Go Along To Get Along' Joe and 'Cry Baby' Boehner!

Anybody But Joe 'Go Along To Get Along' Heck!

JEB! Bush Won't Support Turmp

JEB! Bush has announced that he won't be supporting Donald Trump. Of course, Trump was the only one of the Republican candidates for president who famously said he wouldn't guarantee that he would support the GOP's nominee for president in the first Fox debate, but was ultimately pressured into signing a pledge to do so.

JEB! pledged he would support whoever ultimately prevailed in that Fox debate, but it appears he is made of the same cloth as his daddy, former President George H.W. "Read My Lips, No new Taxes' Bush. His word didn't mean anything either.

So much for JEB's future in the Republican party. Everyone will remember this if he asks anyone to vote for him in the future. I personally wouldn't hold my nose long enough to vote for him for dog-catcher.
