My Thoughts on Charlottesville

First of all, racism is wrong. And disgusting. And evil. Secondly, what we saw in Charlottesville was racism. In fact, it was terrorism. They can dress it up in their fancy alt-right excuses. They can say it was about free speech, or “putting America first”, or monuments, or the Confederacy, or (some how that I don’t understand) Christianity (should we tell them that Jesus was Jewish?).

These idiots knew it wasn’t supposed to be about any of those things. It wasn’t supposed to be patriotic, Christian, or conservative. This was about losers that crawled out of their mom’s basement in the first time in ten years to have a massive white supremacy rally.

Third, these people are not conservatives. They’re not patriots and they’re not constitutionalists and they don’t represent the American right. These are the guys who peaked in middle school and are still mad about that their frosted tips that they got in sixth grade did not lead them to a life of success. Nobody likes them.

So fourthly, to some of you on the left who are saddling up on high horses: spare me your judgement. We really don’t need your self-righteous condemnation about this being “our people.” I don’t think you want to go there. Because correct me if I’m wrong but, I haven’t heard too many who call out the violence of the anti-fascists by name. I don’t remember you taking the fall for the cops that were killed in Dallas last year and I don’t remember you blaming the left for James Hodgkinson (the congressional baseball practice shooter).

That’s because these anti-fascists, cop killers, and the Hodgkinsons don’t represent the left. Just like these racist bigots don’t represent the right.

Fifth, Donald Trump has not said enough, neither did Obama during his presidency. But the shortcomings of both of them don’t make either one better. Leaders especially need to be able to call out evil in this country by name.

So for all of you alt-right racists, you are irrelevant. I know you’re just being apart of this thing because you want to feel important. But in reality, you’re not. History will remember you as a worthless blob of human fecal matter (in they same way as Hitler and the nazis).

This is America, we are free to disagree, we are free to protest, counter-protest, and fiercely debate. But why would we recklessly waste that freedom for racism and hate? What good is that going to do? What is that going to accomplish? How many lives are going to be lost?

So for those of us who are not on the fringes (on both sides), all we have to do is start a conversation, reach across to the other side, and start listening. We may not ever agree, but as long as we all have the same goal in mind, liberty and justice for all, we’ll figure out a way to get there.

Man Who Identifies as 6-year-old Dominates CrossFit Kids Class (Satire)

Local CrossFit enthusiast Anthony Neff walked out of his local CrossFit affiliate with a smile on his face after his 4pm class on Tuesday. He had just dominated another workout, not only setting a personal record in the snatch, but besting the next strongest athlete in the class by over 185 pounds.

Neff, who works as a sales associate at Target, was born in 1983 but is currently transitioning to a birth year of 2011. He is the first transaged individual to participate in his gym’s CrossFit Kids program.

“I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for everyone who has been supporting my transition,” Neff told The Associated Press as he boosted a fellow athlete up to the gym’s water fountain to help him take a drink. “Science has come a long way in recognizing that age isn’t just a matter of how old you are. ”

Neff began to publicly identify as a six-year-old three years ago, but didn’t tell his wife Angela until months later.

“Anthony has always been a little immature, but I thought he would grow out of it,” She explained. But over time, Angela noticed her husband playing with toy trucks instead of going to work, watching hours of Octonauts, and laughing at the words like ‘poop’ and ‘booger.’

“This is who he is, and celebrating that is more important than pressing him to conform to reality.”

The change hasn’t been easy, but Neff says he’s been treated “well and kind” at his affiliate. “The coaches are all very supportive,” he said. His treatment has included increased growth hormones to match the levels found in the bodies of growing children.

“If he has been taking hormones, or steroids, he should be training and competing against actual children,” said Melissa Jones, mother of one of the other children in Neff’s CrossFit Kids class.

Jones is not alone in her concerns, but Neff’s coach, Travis Miller disagrees.

“I asked him if he thought the growth hormones were giving him an unfair advantage against the other children in the class,” Miller told the Associated Press. “He looked right at me and said he ‘didn’t identify’ as someone who was taking growth hormones. What kind of hateful bigot would question that logic?”

At time of press, Neff was consuming a bowl of Fruit Loops and looking forward to a CrossFit Kids session consisting of front-squats and a game of burpee dodgeball.

“All I know is when I get the ball everybody on the other side better watch out.”

Fourth of July Message

My one of my main men, Bill O’Reilly, posted this on his website, and I thought it would also be a great idea to share it with all of you too:

We Pledge to you an Honest Presentation

A new Gallup poll says just 27 percent of Americans trust newspapers and 24 percent have confidence in TV news.
Those numbers are actually up a bit from the recent past, if you can believe it.  The reason for the slight improvement is some Trump-hating Americans are satisfied that the press despises the president as well.
The distrust of the media is both good and bad.  Above all, the national media no longer seeks the truth and the folks know it.  Ideology and money now drive news coverage.  The mission to bring facts to the populace has vanished.
The fact that many Americans understand this – is a good thing.
The big downside of distrusting the press is cynicism.  No longer can we make decisions based upon information we are confident about.  Now, we have to seek out individuals for perspective.  Some of those people are honest, many are not.
As we approach Independence Day, it is a shame that the American press has fallen apart.  The Founders would be sad to see that.  They wanted an honest press to protect Americans from powerful people who might harm them.
We on this website pledge to you an honest presentation.  And we wish you a great July 4th.
I would also like to wish all of you a great, smart, fun, safe, and conservative July 4th, as we celebrate this great country that we all live in. May God bless our President and may God bless this great country.
Have a conservative day,
The Reagan Conservative 🇺🇸

Supreme Court Screws North Carolina On Voter ID Law

Well, I guess having Neil Gorsuch on the Supreme Court means exactly nothing for the state of North Carolina, or any state that believes voter ID should be a requirement to avoid voter fraud.

In 2013, when Governor Pat McCrory took over Raleigh and began undoing all the foul damage two decades of Democrat governors had done to the state, one of his most excellent moves was to sign legislation that put commonsense voter ID laws into effect in the state.

The usual liberal players, who seem to benefit most where there are no protections against voter fraud, pulled their usual tricks out of their filthy liberal pockets and screamed: RACISM!

Because according the the Democrats, everybody knows minorities are weak, dumb, and need white liberal Democrats to hold their hands and tell them how to get by.

Sadly, minorities apparently agree with them, because they keep voting for them and their failed policies, as if one more really bad piece of legislation is going to turn everything around.

Weeks before the 2016 election, the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, a bench of rancid liberal activists, overturned North Carolina’s voter ID law, saying it targeted black voters disproportionately.

So what did the voter ID law require that was so awful?

The law required voters to present an approved form of photo identification before casting a valid ballot; reduced the early voting period from 17 to 10 days; eliminated out-of-precinct voting; eliminated same-day registration and voting; and eliminated preregistration by 16-year-olds.

Maybe it’s my “white privilege” showing, but how, exactly, does this target black voters? How is any of this a detriment, especially when all voters, regardless of race, had to adhere to it?

It’s not.

The real racists are the ones who think that only white people are capable of obtaining an ID.

The state took the case to the Supreme Court, seeking to have the lower court’s ruling overturned, in order to reinstate voter ID in the Tar Heel state, but today, the Supreme Court ruled that minorities in North Carolina are too dumb to figure out how to get ID, or at least, too dumb to figure out how to pull it out of their pockets and show it at a voting station.

In a statement, Chief Justice John Roberts noted that the court’s refusal to hear the case isn’t a judgment on its merits.

“Given the blizzard of filings over who is and who is not authorized to seek review in this Court under North Carolina law, it is important to recall our frequent admonition that ‘the denial of a writ of certiorari imports no expression of opinion upon the merits of the case,’” he said.

So SCOTUS just doesn’t want to be bothered with it and North Carolina, that saw a rash of voter fraud and misconduct in the 2016 election, is stuck with a bad system, a corrupt governor, and little recourse to bring integrity back to our system of voting.

And yes, the ACLU and the Southern Coalition for Social Justice (Just drips with annoying, liberal angst, doesn’t it?) are doing a victory lap on the ashes of ACTUAL justice and fair elections in the state.

“This law, enacted with what the appeals court called discriminatory intent and ‘almost surgical precision’ targeting African-American voters, is meeting its much-deserved demise. An ugly chapter in voter suppression is finally closing.”- Dale Ho, director of the ACLU’s Voting Rights Project

That’s liberal code for: Voter fraud is now the law of the land in the Tar Heel State – Democrats rejoice!

A Civil War in Congress

It is really all about hating President Trump, not partisan politics. There’s no doubt that Judge Neil Gorsuch is qualified to sit on the Supreme Court and he will. The confirmation is set for Friday. Republicans in the Senate must prevail on the judge or the entire party and the president will be gravely damaged. That’s exactly what the Democratic Party wants. 

The strategy is simple: oppose every change the president wants to make and everything he wants to do. Democrats create as much mayhem as possible, then tell Americans that President Trump doesn’t know how to govern. Meanwhile, Americans get hammered because worthy persons like Judge Gorsuch are disparaged and innovative policies are sabotaged. 
At the Gorsuch hearings, the Democrats tried to trap the judge into saying something controversial and paint him unworthy of the SCOTUS job. Fair minded folks respect sincerely held political differences. I know I do. But political hit jobs are obvious. The Gorsuch hearings featured “gotcha” questions designed to demean.

We now have an opposition agenda primarily based on hatred, not what’s best for the country. The rhetoric on the left is vitriolic in the extreme.

Trump-haters justify their behavior by saying he’s destroying the US. The issues of illegal immigration, global warming, and national security have created fury on the left. As I’ve said before, moderate Democrats are under pressure to support the hate-Trump strategy.

Many Republicans opposed President Obama’s agenda. There was very little common ground there. But five GOP senators voted to confirm the very liberal Elena Kagan to the Supreme Court. Obama got trade authority, and debt limits were raised. The system was strained under President Obama, but it functioned. Now, political hatred is directly threatening our Republic.

We the people will pay a huge price if things don’t change.

The Nomination of Judge Neil Gorsuch

Many Americans voted for Donald Trump because they feared that a Democratic president would appoint another liberal judge to the Supreme Court. In recent times, the court has often ruled on politics, not the law. Mr. Trump nominated forty-nine year old Neil Gorsuch from Colorado. Gorsuch has a very solid judicial record and serves on the tenth US district of appeals in Denver. Yesterday there were hearings in the Senate to approve Judge Gorsuch to the highest court in the country. Predictably, some liberal politicians do not like the judge simply because he is not a liberal. Even though his record is stellar and his philosophy independent, some Democratic senators will not vote for him. 

Some senators (like Democratic Californian Senator Dianne Feinstein) at the hearing voiced their opinions in support of loose interpretation of the Constitution and also that the Constitution is a living document intended to evolve as our country evolves. Those Democrats should know better. If judges are free to rule on judicial evolution, that means that they become politicians. All judges in America should just have one rule: what was the intent of the original Constitution? If they reject that, then they make decisions based upon their own political beliefs. Then what do we have? Just another extension of Congress, not a Supreme Court.

There’s no question that the Constitution gives the president power to stop some foreign nationals from coming into the US. But activist judges have blocked President Trump’s travel order, saying in essence it’s anti-Muslim. If that were the case, many more Muslim countries (Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and other countries) would be included in the president’s order, but they are not. So everybody (every fair minded person) knows that politics, not the law, are involved here and eventually the president will win in federal court. The activist judges don’t care. They have temporarily blocked the order and are liberal heroes. Judge Gorsuch looks like a traditionalist man who believes the intent of the Constitution should reign. Again, the seems to be unacceptable to the Democratic senators. They want a political judge. They want a liberal judge.

The best example of Constitutional debate is the Second Amendment: the right “to keep and bear arms.” It is clear that the Founding Fathers wanted Americans to have the ability to protect themselves. Back then, militias were the mechanism, private citizens with guns organizing against threats. Today, the threats are more personal, terrorists and criminals, not frontier marauders. Americans have a Constitutional right to defend themselves against those who would harm them. That’s why firearms cannot be banned, but they can be limited. Some limits are reasonable and individual states have the right to mandate gun laws based on the will of their people. The left rejects that and in some cases wants to ban guns outright. Things could change dramatically if the Supreme Court becomes solely a political party dominated by the left. 

Intent, not evolution, should be the litmus test for Constitutional law. That’s why a traditional judge, like Neil Gorsuch, is vital in this situation. He will likely sit for decades, presiding over a country in the middle of a social civil war.
