Letter to Dr. Qanta Ahmed

Dr. Ahmed…

I have seen you interviewed several times on FOX. You seem to be on a path different from most Muslims in the United States. I am wondering.

Frankly, I am having a difficult time accepting any notion that anything Islam is good for the United States. I see what has come out of the Somali enclave in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and the one in Dearborn, Michigan. I read/hear about Keith Ellison as Attorney General in Minnesota. I have known about Louis Farrakhan for years. And it seems to me that the majority of converts to Islam in the United States have been from minority groups. I wonder why.

I highly suspect that as a matter of practice, some form of Sharia law is practiced in many Islam dominated communities throughout the United States. I have the understanding, perhaps falsely so, that no Muslim can pledge allegiance to the United States Constitution and the laws thereunder over Islamic law.

I go somewhat frequently to our local Starbucks. On several occasions now I have seen a woman draped from head to foot with only her eyes showing. The accompanying male is dressed all-American style including a closely cropped beard. I would not call that picture anything close to being assimilated into this country’s culture. I find it offensive because I believe it to be demeaning to women and a sign of ownership, not a respectful equal partner relationship.

I read about and see on the media the social practices in Muslim countries all over the globe. I don’t find anything positive, particularly for women, about them. So, correct me if I am wrong. You see to be very much outside of the norm for those who practice Islam.

Women in the 116th Congress

International Women’s Day was celebrated on March 8th. It was a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women world wide. It was celebrated in the USA.

There are more women now in the United States Congress than ever before. There are 131 women in the 116th US Congress. Twenty five women are Senators and 107 are US Representatives. By far, most are intelligent, have good judgment, and really care about their constituency, but some are wacko and/or very self-serving. I am wondering if I can identify the wackos?

Maybe these…

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez D-NY
Nancy Pelosi D-CA
Kamala Harris D-CA
Donna Shalala D-FL
Ilhan Omar D-MN
Debbie Stabenow D-MI
Elizabeth Warren D-MA
Debbie Wasserman Schultz D-FL
Frederica Wilson D-FL
Barbara Lee D-CA
Dianne Feinstein D-CA
Maxine Waters D-CA
Mazie Hirono D-HI
Rashida Tlaib D-MI
Sheila Jackson Lee D-TX

Do you get a pattern?

There are, additionally, a couple of Republicans, Susan Collins and Lisa Murkowski, that I put in the “I don’t know” category. They do not seem to know with whom to identify. There are indications they are Democrats in sheep’s clothing.

The women in the list seem to garner more TV time than all the others in Congress put together. There are a couple that are just plain dangerous and others that are crooked as a dog’s hind leg. They must follow after “Crooked Hillary”. Others are just stupid or ignorant.

So, we can look forward to show time on television from time to time. Enjoy.

Trey Gowdy’s Answers

Any other questions?

Trey Gowdy, South Carolina former Congressman, recently responded to a reporter about the military in response to a question from a CNN reporter about the ban of transgenders from joining the US armed forces. As Trey typically does so very well, he nailed it rather succinctly.

Question: How can President Trump claim to represent all US citizens, regardless of sexual orientation, when he banned transgenders from joining the military? Isn’t that discrimination?

Gowdy’s response: “Nobody has a right to serve in the Military. Nobody! What makes you people think the Military is an equal opportunity employer? It is far from it — and for good reasons — let me cite a few. The Military uses prejudice regularly and consistently to deny citizens from joining for being too old or too young, too far or too skinny, too tall or too short. Citizens are denied for having flat feet, or for missing or additional fingers.”

He went on to explain: “By the way, poor eyesight will disqualify you, as well as bad teeth. Malnourished? Drug addition? Bad back? Criminal history? Low IQ? Anxiety? Phobias? Hearing damage? Six arms? Hear voices in your head? Self-identification as a Unicorn? Need a special access ramp for your wheelchair? Can’t run the required course in the required time? Can’t do the required number of push-ups? Not really a morning person? And refuse to get out of bed before noon? All can be legitimate reasons for denial.”

“The Military has one job: Winning War. Anything else is a distraction and liability. Did someone just scream? That isn’t Fair? War is very unfair, there are no exceptions made for being special or challenged or socially wonderful. You must change yourself to meet Military standards and not the other way around. I say again: you don’t change the Military — you must change yourself. The Military is not about being fair, it is about taking advantage of others and about winning. The Military doesn’t need to accommodate anyone with special issues. The Military needs to win wars and keep our country safe — PERIOD!”

“If any of your personal issues are a liability that detract from readiness or lethality… thank you for applying and good luck in future endeavors. Any other questions?”

Turncoats

Turncoats. The twelve Republican Senators that voted in favor of the Democrat resolution to overturn President Trump’s declaration of national emergency at the United States – Mexico border are turncoats. They have betrayed our country and deserve to be defeated when next they face the ballot box.

President Trump, surrounded by all manner of law enforcement agents and Angel Moms, VETOED the resolution about as fast as he could get a pen in hand.

The excuse the now infamous 12 Republicans give for their vote is they had “Constitutional issues” with President Trump declaring a national emergency.They say they believe this is a case of presidential over-reach. Interesting they had no problem with President Barack Hussein Obama’s 12 National Emergencies, 10 of which remain active. President Bush Jr declared 13 and President Clinton 17. No problem.

The power to declare a national emergency was codified into law by Congress in 1976 as the National Emergencies Act. Some 59 national emergencies have been declare, more than 30 of which remain in effect. It is crystal clear under the law President Trump has the power to declare a national emergency to protect our southern border.

We are seeing hypocrisy at its worst. This country is being threatened with mass migration from Mexico, Central & South America, and many other countries. Tens of thousands of illegal aliens are flooding our country. Listen to those who defend the border: the Border Patrol and ICE. They are clear about the need for a border wall, more technology, more boots-on-the-ground and the need for immigration law reform. Congress does not listen nor act. Congress is allowing an almost open flow of illegal aliens including criminals, human traffickers, and terrorists. They are allowing a flood of illegal and dangerous drugs into the United States. And how about the diseases. Border officials are seeing such as malaria, dengue, hepatitis, tuberculosis, HIV, leprosy, and parasites.

Who are the turncoat twelve? They are Senators Susan Collins (ME), Rob Portman (OH), Lamar Alexander (TN), Roy Blunt (MO), Mike Lee (UT), Jerry Moran (KS), Lisa Murkowski (AK), Rand Paul (KY), Mitt Romney (UT), Marco Rubio (FL), Patrick Toomey (PA) and Roger Wicker (MS).

It is undeniable that great profits flow from illegal activity at our southern border. It is suspected politicians are among those profiting. If you will remember, El Chapo, the Mexican drug king now under federal trial, blurted out the names of several politicians guilty of corruption before he was silenced. This possibility is not surprising given the shocking level of corruption we have seen in the FBI and Department of Justice. Careful scrutiny is called for. In addition, it is estimated over $50 billion are sent out of the United States each year back to illegal alien countries of origin.

Collins along with Murkowski have frequently been unclear as to whether they are Republicans or Democrats. Rand Paul is Rand Paul. Romney is a “NEVER-Trumper” and creepy. The other Utah Senator, Lee, makes it 100% out-of-step for Utah. Trump’s nickname for Rubio is a well deserved “lightweight choker”. Several of the others are of the RINOs or “NEVER-Trumpers”. Susan Collins is up for election in 2020. We wish her “bye-bye” and happy retirement.

Congressional leaders from both parties are pathetic. They are putting the country at incredible risk. Our immigration laws need to be changed to eliminate anchor babies, chain migration and lottery migration. They need to be changed to institute e-Verify, end VISA overstays, and promote immigration based upon merit. They need to be changed to allow the immediate deportation of illegals; not permit endless legal maneuvering.

We do not need more un-educated, non-English speaking, un-skilled immigrants that arrive in the country expecting to be supported with money, social services, free medical care, education, and more. Any resources available need to be for US citizens, not illegal aliens who have decided it is their right to storm our borders.

The infamous 12 should be ashamed of themselves. Let the flood of illegal immigrants reside with them in their gated communities. Let them take responsibilities they are so eager to shove off on American citizens. And for the Democrats – House and Senate – no words are adequate to describe their treachery. Maybe it will take a terrorist attack by illegal aliens or the release of some biological disease to get Congresses attention.

President Trump is the one taking care of the United States of America.
