Facebook Did Not Help Donald Trump Get Elected President

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The leftist are at it again. This time they are blaming Facebook data harvesting and social engineering for Hillary Clinton losing the 2016 presidential election.

When are progressive left Socialist Democrats going to realize what cost them the election is the general public disagrees with their agenda.

The leftist believe all they had to do was follow the script and Hillary would be elected president. Just get on TV, say the right words, make the right promises, and the nation would have another Democrat president.

Things did not turn out as the progressive Socialist left expected. Everyday working people saw through their lies and voted for real change. In short, we voted for Donald Trump.

Gun Control Communist Fascist Socialist and Democrats

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

What do Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats all have in common? Let’s exclude the obvious, such as human rights violations, mass murder, slavery, opposing civil rights, genocide… etc.

All four promote gun control.

For all intents and purposes, there is very little difference between Communist, Fascist (Nazis), Socialist, and Democrats.

Some readers may be quick to say, “Democrats are champions of civil rights.” That is a common misconception.

Here is one of the Democrat policies spelled out.

  • Create a lie that victimizes a certain group.
  • Repeat the lie until people of the supposed victimized group accept it as truth.
  • Tell the fake victims the only way to protect themselves is to take rights away from the other group.
  • After rights are taken away from the fictitious aggressors, create a new group of victimized people.
  • Make up a lie, repeat the lie until the next group believes it.

The Story of Buster My Black Mouth Cur Farm Dog

Buster black mouth cur farm dog

On the Saturday morning of March 10th, 2018 I went to open the chicken house, and my Cur dog was not with the other two. Zoey, Ellis and Buster usually run together. Zoey and Ellis were home, but Buster was not.

He was not home before Saturday night. When dark rolled around, I was very concerned.

Sunday, I spent 3/4 of the day looking for buster. The rest of the day was spent getting ready for Monday.

Monday, got up and wrote some articles for alloutdoor, spent the rest of the day looking for Buster. Did a hiking trip through the area where the dogs usually prowl.

Monday night I was an emotional train wreck. Blaming myself for not having him fixed… etc.

6:30 Tuesday morning Buster was at the front door. Back leg looks like it was clipped by a vehicle. Nothing bad, just some road rash.

He is probably the most affectionate dog I have ever owned. He loves to snuggle in the bed, and will sometimes sleep with his head on my shoulder.

What Is a Prepsteader?

Kevin Felts blogger and political commentator

What is a prepsteader? It is someone who combines prepping and homesteading. However, the complete answer is a little more complicated.

To see the whole picture we need to go back to at least the 1970s, or maybe the early 1980s. What we consider prepping today was everyday life during the cold war.

During the Cold War, people lived under the constant threat of nuclear war. Because of that people kept a stockpile of food and other supplies. After all, you never knew when the bombs were going to fall.

When the Berlin Wall came down after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the United States entered into a short lived period of peace. For the first time since the end of World War II we were at a true peace.

The came along Waco, Ruby Ridge and the Oklahoma City Bombing. When it came out that Timothy Mcveigh was part of a survivalist group, the name survivalist became taboo almost overnight.

Spring Is a Beautiful Time of Year

Spring time sprouts on a fig trees

Spring is a wonderful time of year. Everything is blooming, birds are migrating, leaves are coming out, and farm supply stores have their plants in stock. This is one time of the year that is special to a lot of people.

The cold wet weather of winter is yielding to the warmer temperatures of spring. Old man winter is not finished though as March is an active time of year. The back and forth between cold and warm weather may remind observers of young boys having a shoving match on a school playground.

Eventually though, as sure as the sun sets and rises, old man winter must yield to spring, and spring must yield to summer. Before the oppressive summer heat sets in, maybe we should get outside and enjoy the warmer weather?

The winter of 2017 – 2018 will be one for the record books. Most of the nation has been cooped up in our homes for weeks on end. Our only ventures outside have been to go to work, home, buy groceries.. and the absolute necessities.

Disappointed In YouTube Video Views

Bushel of potatoes

Guys and gals, what gives in the number of views my YouTube videos are getting? Why do I have 38,878 subscribers (as of March 2018) but my videos only get a few hundred views? Why would someone subscribe to my YouTube channel if they are not going to watch my videos?

I suspect some of the subscribers may have been spam bots, but surely not all of them?

Out of all of the prepping channels on YouTube, mine covers the widest variety of topics, but no firearms. When I joined the google adsense program over a decade ago the writing was on the wall. Google YouTube would not tolerate hunting or gun videos.

Sometime around 2007 or 2008 I posted a video on how to skin a squirrel. The video was flagged as animal cruelty and my account received a warning. From that time forward I never posted another hunting video. Even when people posted request on skinning videos, I avoided the topic.

Democrat Cycle Of Bad Policy

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Make no doubt about it, the Democrat party is a party founded on bad policies, then blaming others when the bad policy needs to be changed.

Democrat cycle of policies:

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Create bad policy, blame someone else.

Rinse, repeat until desired social agenda is achieved.

Society Needs Jesus Back In Our Lives

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Jesus taught a message of love, and for that he is hated. What does that say about society? It says there are some people whos hearts are full of hate. The very idea of spreading the message of “love your neighbor” causes them to go into a rage. They start babbling about things to discredit the message of love. Why would someone fight against love? Why would someone want the world to be filled with hate?

The simple answer is their hearts are full of hate.

The mouth is a reflection of what fills the heart. A lot of people will disagree with that. However, when a person argues against Jesus, who only taught peace and love, their heart is not filled with love.

Society has been taught there is no GOD. What examples can we look at when societies reject GOD? China comes to mind, and so does Russia.

Can Not Legislate a Conscience

Kevin Felts political commentator

If there is one thing that should stop mass shootings, but fails, it has to be the conscience. The conscience is supposed to point people in the right direction. It is supposed to help us help us make the right decision. What happened to the conscience of mass shooters?

What makes mass shooters different from serial killers? Instead of killing a dozen people over the course of a decade like a serial killer, a mass shooter kills a dozen people in a few minutes.

After the Las Vegas and Parkland shootings, the gun grabbers were out in full force. The bodies were still warm when they were offered up as a sacrificial lamb to justify gun control. The bodies were held high, as if to impress the GOD of gun control.

Just as drugs and illegal immigrants slip across the border, so would illegal weapons. If border security can not stop millions of illegal immigrants, what is to assure us illegal guns can be stopped?

Rights Stripped Away

Why Do People Give Their Rights Away

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

It is a simple question, “Why do people want to give their rights away?” This is everything from gun control, to taxation. Overtime, people, including our ancestors, slowly gave our rights away.

Take the income tax for example. Who in their right mind is stupid enough to allow the government to tax their income? Replies may be along the lines of how the income tax was supposed to be voluntary. Or that the income tax was supposed to only affect the rich.

Income Tax

Once the income tax amendment was passed, it opened the flood gates for government abuses. For decades the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been used as a political weapon. All of this was voted on by the states and the people who allowed the Sixteenth Amendment (Amendment XVI) to the United States Constitution to come into existence.

Only Fascist Should Have Guns

Kevin Felts political commentator

That’s right, only fascist should have guns. That is what the liberal anti-gun and anti-Trump liberal media is telling people.

Ever since Donald Trump ran for president he has been accused of being a fascist.

The anti-Trump movement even reached a point where members of the electoral college were asked not to vote for Trump. When Trump was sworn in, members of the socialist Democrat party had a complete meltdown.

After Donald Trump was elected president, ANTIFA organized rallies calling for Trump and Pence to step down.

Once Trump was sworn in, various website called him a “illegitimate” president.

Yet, even though the nation has a so called “fascist” for a president, members of the liberal media still want gun control. How does that even make sense? Why would people living under a fascist for a government want stricter gun control?

Define Common Sense Gun Control

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

The bodies of children from the Parkland shooting are not even cold, and gun grabbers are out in force.

Gun grabbing Socialist Democrats are throwing the ever popular buzz words, “Common sense gun control” around as if the words were candy.

Someone explain “exactly” what common sense gun control is.

  • Background checks – in effect since the 1990s.
  • Family violence offenders – check.
  • Felons prohibited from owning a gun – check.
  • People with a history of mental illness – check.

Someone explain where we need more gun control, much less “common sense” gun control.

Gun owners have given up our rights since the 1930s. Those rights were further eroded by the Federal Firearms Act of 1968. Then there was the Brady Bill.

Exactly and to the point, what laws would have prevented the Parkland, Florida school shooting?

Nature Will Reclaim What Is Hers

Dog at Sawmill

The day will come when nature will reclaim what is hers. That is not speculation, it is the honest truth. In the grand scheme of things, modern humans have only been around for a split second.

For several hundred thousand years our ancestors were bands of nomadic tribes who followed the herds. Around 10,000 years ago our ancestors developed agriculture and domesticated livestock (animal husbandry).

We only entered the space age a few decades ago.

For all the progress we claim to have made, we still kill each other over money, jealously, and religion. How do we rate whether a society is successful? Maybe by how well we take care of each other? Studies show Neanderthals took care of their sick and injured. Even primates take care of their injured. Yet, we have people dying because they can not afford medical care.

In our lust for money human compassion has been cast to the wayside.

Getting Tired Of This Wet Weather

Kevin Felts on a hiking trip

What is the deal with all the wet weather this winter? I have a field to disk up and potatoes to plant. If I were to put the tractor in the field with all this rain, the tractor would sink up to its axles. Then there are the small oak trees that I need to cut and split for firewood.

The front yard is like a mud bog. Walking from the truck to the house is almost like walking through a march.

The winter of 2017 – 2018 has been one for the record books. Unusually cold weather, wet, and a flu epidemic. Replace the flu with the Black Death, and the winter of 2017 – 2018 would sound like something from a history book.

Here in southeast Texas we had snow twice, and back to back night of 18 degrees. That may not sound like much, but for around here it is strange. The last time I remember anything like this was back in 1989.

Democrats: Repetition and Simplicity Over Substance

Kevin Felts, blogger and political commentator

Have you ever wondered why modern pop music is so terrible? The lyrics are rather bland, and the lyrics are repeated over and over. This makes the song easy to remember. Just say the same lines over and over and it makes the song easy for people to follow. The end result is repetition and simplicity over substance.

This it the same trick Democrats use to cover up their failed political agenda. Give the people a simple answer, then repeat the answer over and over until people believe it.

Rather than facing their failures, being honest, talking about why Hillary lost the 2016 election, Democrats play the blame game.

The game Democrats play is to blame Russia for Hillary losing the election. Blaming the Russians is simple. It gives the public an enemy to point at and blame. The repetition reminds people that Russia is to blame for Hillary losing the election.

The goal is to give people a believable excuse. Hillary did not lose because Democrats are the party of hate. Hillary lost because Russia hacked the elections.

Let’s be honest, the stances Hillary took on certain topics cost her the election.
