Venezuela Suspended Gun Rights for 180 Days

Kevin Felts political commentator

This is what happens when the government controls firearms. There is a lot to learn from Venezuela. Some people may say “That could never happen here”, sure it can. The government can suspend civil rights under certain situation. The United States Supreme Court upheld Executive Order 9066, which was signed by Franklin Roosevelt and detained thousands of Japanese-Americans during World War II. The law has yet to be repealed.

What I worry about, is groups like antifa causing enough civil unrest that basic civil liberties are suspended.

With the outrage with Trump being elected President, what would happen if he is reelected?

What Trump Means To Preppers

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

What does the election of Donald Trump mean to preppers? It means there is a lot of good stuff in the future.

End free trade and bring our jobs back from China.

Let China know we will no longer bow to them.

Restore relations with Russia.

Restore good relations with Britain. President obama made some disparaging comments after Britain left the EU.

Bomb ISIS back to the stone age. Even if you feel ISIS is no threat to the United States, they are a threat to stability in the middle east and they are a human rights issue.

ISIS is killing innocent civilians. Their actions have caused hundreds of thousands to flee the middle east. Destroy ISIS so families can return to their homes.

Stances That Cost Hillary Clinton The 2016 Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

While liberals continue to ask why did Hillary Clinton lose the election, the answer lies within her stance on certain issues. What Hillary told the people and want she said to Wall Street were two different things. Rather than addressing the issues, Hillary played on the fears and emotions of minorities.

President Obama promised a lot of stuff. Very little of what he promised came to fruition. States who expanded Medicaid under Obamacare are running out of money, as was be expected. Companies still have offshore tax havens.

Instead of working with congress to close to tax havens, president Obama sat on his hands. That tax money could of been used to send young adults from under privileged families to college.

The People Want a President Who:

Election, Life, Millennials, Democrats and the 2016 Elections

Kevin Felts political commentator

I want to do a video blog (vblog) about the elections, life and millennials. There has been a lot of stuff going on in the United States and worldwide, that will be felt for generations. If Trump holds true to even part of his promises the United States poses to be a world leader. And not only a world leader, but to work with other world leaders to create a bright future for everyone.

The liberal agenda of open borders and free trade has to end. The liberal agenda of safe haven cities for illegal immigrants has to end. It will be interesting to see what happens when safe haven cities defy President Trump.

2016 election

The democrat party platform, as they have always been, is built on fear.

1860s – 1960s, democrats played on the fears of minorities. See those minorities over there, they want to hurt you.

1960s – present day, democrats have demonized the conservative white male. See that white man, he is oppressing all minorities.

Millennials Have to Support Trump For Their Financial Future

It is critical millennials support President Donald Trump. Ending free trade will be the only way they will have a real financial future. Free trade with China and other low wage nations has decimated the middle class here in the United States. Millennials do not realize their financial future depends on ending free trade.

While browsing YouTube I came across a video of two young men arguing back and forth about Trump.

One young man asked how is trump going to make America great again.

It was at that point I realized he had slept through American history classes in school. There was once a time when the United States was the manufacturing hub of the world. We produced all kinds of stuff.

Then came along free trade.

Those young men did not know that there was a time when a young man could go into the workforce and afford to buy a home. buy a car and have a family.

Millennials voting against Donald Trump are voting against their own financial future.

Financial Future

Democrat Party Socialist Agenda Is In Death Throes

Kevin Felts political commentator

The socialist democrat party is in its death throes. Voters are starting to wake up, they realize the end goal of the democrat party agenda is communism

Republicans, the party that was “supposed” to fade away into history now controls two branches of government. Democratic party leaders are in their 70s, which are Nancy Pelosi and Bernie Sanders.

In two years something like 25 senate seats will be up for election. This gives the GOP 2 years to turn the economy and the nation around. If they do, democrats will lose even more seats in the senate.

The fear mongering, corporate loving, free trade loving, open immigration democrat party better get its act together before the final nails are driven in the coffin 2 years from now.

The silent majority sees democrats for what they are, and we do not like it.

Free Trade

Free trade has devastated our economy ever since Nixon opened trade with China.

Race Had Nothing To Do With Trump Winning

The race baiters are at it again. This time they are callign the election of Donald Trump a, “Whitelash.” As in whites are lashing out at the United States having a black president.

Honest truth, the middle class is tired of business as usual. We are tired of out jobs being sent to China. China surpassed the United States as the worlds largest trading partner.

Donald Trump won the election based on President Obamas failed policies and the fear mongering done by Hillary Clinton. President Obama promised hope and change, and all we got was mandated health insurance. Rather than working with both parties, President Obama tried to rule by exectuive order, and people are tired of it.

There Is The Issue Of:

Who Is To Blame For Hillary Clinton Losing The 2016 Presidential Election

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Who is to blame for Hillary Clinton losing the 2016 presidential election? Start by blaming liberal agendas, wall street, liberal elite, globalist,,, everyone who has turned their back on everyday working people.

Hillary Clinton losing and Donald Trump winning is the result of the government turning its back on the people for decades.

To understand and explain the election of 2016 we need to go back to the 1970s. All the way back to when Richard Nixon was president.

Richard Nixon – Let’s start back in the 1970s with Richard Nixon. Nixon opened relations with China. Shortly after toy company started moving production to China. Factories closed, people started losing their jobs and company profits started going up. Wall Street loved not having to pay workers a fair wage.

Why Did Hillary Lose the 2016 Election

Kevin Felts political commentator

Why Did Hillary Lose the 2016 Election? Hillary lost because working class people are tired of liberal agendas, and we were tired of career politicians.

We are tired of free trade.

We want our jobs back from China.

We want to be able to afford to buy a home, car, and have a family.

We are tired of banks getting bailed out.

We are tired of wall street getting a free ride.

We are tired of obama being more interested in bathrooms than veterans.

Fear Mongering

We are tired of democrats fear mongering to divide us. Without fear democrats have no political platform. That is the way they have been in the past and that is the way they will always be. Democrats thrive on turning one demographic against another. Hillarys whole platform was built on how one group, conservative white men, are keeping everyone else down.

Random Thoughts October 26 2016 and Life Changes

Old axe head found near a creek

When this article is being written, I am 48 years old, and getting close to turning 49. Life has not gone anywhere near like what I wanted. A large part of that is my own fault. When I graduated high school I went into the work force rather than joining the military or going to college. The older I get the more I regret those decisions.

At 17 and 18 years old I wanted to join the army and try out for special forces. Some may call that a pipe dream, while others call it silly. I call it having a dream. Par of life should be following your dreams. Rather than joining the army I got married and had children.

The other things I wanted to do, and have wanted to do all of my life is archeology and anthropology.

July 3rd of 2016 I quit my job on a tugboat. I got tired of working 100 hours a week, and I got tired of hearing grown men whine and complain. Working on a tugboat is like working around a bunch of high school teenage girls. Backstabbing, gossiping, always worried about what other people think,,, life on a tugboat was downright bad.

Life Changes

When Did Society Stop Respecting Police

Kevin Felts political commentator

What has caused society to lose respect for law enforcement? With the innovation of smart phones, video recorders, youtube, liveleak, facebook,,,, etc, police activity can be videoed and shared worldwide in a matter of minutes. The public can see what police have to deal with everyday.

Has the sharing of police activity on social media caused society become hostile to law enforcement?

I think so.

The police preform a job the general public do not understand. Most of us do not see drug users daily, we do not see domestic violence victims daily, we do not deal with the mentally ill daily.

Ever since the death of Michael Brown I have pondered why people get upset when police have to use force. Last night I came across a video that got me to thinking even more about the police and society issue.

The following video is from the Hagerstown Police Department. This should of been a typical traffic accident, but things took a turn for the worse.

Democrat Policy: Tell a Lie Until People Believe It

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

When Hillary Clinton collapsed after leaving the September 11th memorial event, the media said:

She stumbled when taking a step.

Then it was her knees buckled.

Then it was she got too hot and collapsed from the heat.

Finally, it came out that Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia.

So which is it?

The thing with telling the truth, one does not have to change their story when the facts are disputed.

Luckily someone was able to film Hillary collapsing and being drug into a van. When you look at a breakdown of the video it is clear Hillary collapsing is nothing out of the ordinary. The security detail acts like this is an everyday event. One of the security personal, a bald headed guy, moved into position several seconds before Hillary collapses, as if he knew what was going to happen.

Breakdown of Hillary Clinton Collapse Video

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Major media outlets are reporting that Hillary Clinton “stumbled” on her way to the van. The video says otherwise.

Lets do a breakdown to the video:

0:02 – Hillary is leaning against a post. There is a bald headed guy to the left of the scene. Van pulls up, there is a lady under the left arm of Hillary Clinton. Important to note that Hillary is leaning against the post and is receiving aid from the lady under her arm.

0:05 – The bald headed guy moves toward the van.

0:09 – Hillary sways slightly to her right.

0:11 – Hillary takes a small step forward.

0:12 – Bald headed guy is now under Hillarys right arm.

Democrats Adopting Republican Policies

Kevin Felts political commentator

It is nice to see Democrats adopting republican policies. Maybe democrats are finally coming around to a reasonable way of thinking.

What is really nice, liberal Democrats are not saying a single thing about the shift in democrat policy. Maybe, just maybe, the far left is getting some common sense about them.

What exactly have the Democrats changed their minds on?

Building walls and requiring IDs to vote.

Fences And More Fences

Not only did the Democratic National Convention have a fence around it, they also built a fence between the audience and the platform.

The two fences are symbolic of the three groups of people:

  • Outside the first wall – the illegal aliens.
  • Inside the first wall – the citizens and people who are in the United States legally.
  • On the platform behind two walls – the political elite. These are the people who tell everyone else what to do, but are protected by security and two walls.

Thoughts on Trump and His Immigration Suggestions

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

When trump said he would block immigrants coming from nations with a history of terrorism, his words set off a crap storm that is still brewing.

Then there is the famous trump wall that he suggest be built between Mexico and the United States.

Why do people get so angry when someone says we need to secure our borders?

People Who Get Mad at Securing Our Borders

Do they lock the doors of their house? Do they even have doors on their house? Maybe they have just a glass door so people can look straight into their home?

Surely they do not have security systems on their homes.

Do they lock their windows? Surely they do not have security cameras.

If they took any measures to secure their home they would be a liberal hypocrite.
