By Guest Columnist, Michael Ceremello – December 13, 2018 –

Listening to the other side, that of the demented, illogical, and ideologically perverted Left, is fascinating.  We don’t have to conjecture as to who and what they are.  They come right out and tell us how corrupt a Nation we are and their solution is to destroy it and substitute communism-lite (otherwise known as socialistic theft from the rich) as if it will rectify the indignities and sins of all of the white Christian males who gave us and preserved for us the greatest Nation on earth.

So what are they up to now?  The same old relentless and now emboldened drive to unseat our duly elected president, The Donald.  Doesn’t really seem to affect the man all that much as he took the Left’s anointed couple, Nancy Pelosi of the House and Chuck Schumer of the Senate, and gave them a beating.

It is clear that President Trump is intent on keeping all of his campaign promises.  While the Left and the worthless RINO’s in his own party laughed at Trump when he claimed Mexico would pay for the border wall, it appears that now is also coming true.  Couple that with nominating and successfully appointing many Federal judges including two on the Supreme Court plus creating a booming economy by cutting corporate taxes, Trump has renegotiated the North American Free Trade Agreement s well.

Exactly how much the new agreement will generate or save for the US has not been estimated at this time to my knowledge.  I have heard figures of $5 billion over two years.  Sounds like the same amount Trump wants to start the wall.  Considering the last fool who controlled this office increased the national debt by $11 trillion, that’s with a “T”, jacks like Bernie Sanders should keep his pie hole shut about better places to spend the money.

How much will building the wall save the US in welfare, education costs, and medical services?  Hmm … I think Mexico just paid for the wall and enough money to fund ICE, INS, or whatever it will be called to deport the ILLEGALS of all stripes “invading” the US as well as those here already.

What I really enjoyed was listening to Schumer squirm when the Donald told him he accomplished nothing when Chuckie boy last shut the government down.  I enjoyed it even more when Trump told him

that he, Donald, would own it personally and was doing it to protect the American people.  In case you don’t realize it Nancy and Chuck, you just got “owned”.


Personally, I would love to work for Trump.  I view him as a man of principles and morality despite the aspersions to his character the Left has to rely on because they have nothing else.  Let’s see, do you remember John Edwards?  Seems he was allowed to pay off women when he was running for office.  How about John Conyers and the Congressional slush fund?  That’s tax payer money, folks, and it was done while possessing the office.

How about Bill?  Oh wait a minute.  That wasn’t consensual sex, it was rape and sexual harassment.  Let’s not forget Hillary threatened the women who came forward.  Talk about witness tampering.

Seems once again the hypocrisy is not only evident, it isn’t even apples to apples.

Next we have the indictments and jail time for Cohen and Flynn.  Personally I think Cohen is getting off easy.  This skunk recorded his client for whatever purpose, can’t be much of a lawyer if he doesn’t understand attorney/client privilege, and now how seen God thanks to being threatened by prosecutors who would have made Hitler proud.

The obvious question is why would any one believe his testimony if he is a proven liar?  As for Trump wanting to build a hotel in Moscow, as I said before, so what?  “There is no there, there” to quote Gertrude Stein’s snobbish but accurate reflections on Oakland versus San Fran-sick-o.  Do you really think anyone with Trump’s type of money, other than the Clintons, would sell his or her soul to make a lot of money when he already has a lot of money?

While Mueller is still shooting blanks in his attempt to find Russian collusion, any one with a mote of sense can see there is nothing but wishful assumptions, insinuations, and intimations of impropriety.  If Mueller had something major, it would have been “leaked” or exposed long ago.

Then we have the case of General Mike Flynn.  I am understanding he is asking for community service instead of jail time.  How is it he is even facing jail time when even those initially investigating him said they didn’t believe he was lying?  Now it surfaces that those from the FBI who were setting him up advised him against using an attorney while speaking to them.

The most important thing is Flynn never should have resigned.  That was a sign of weakness and the piranha and sharks went on a feeding frenzy ultimately bankrupting the poor guy.  As the incoming national security advisor, the Logan Act is a stretch and speaking to the Russian ambassador, AFTER THE ELECTION, is perfectly legal as well as appropriate.

If it looks like a coup, has the sound of a coup, and is visibly perceptible as a coup, my bet is that it is a blatant attempt to overthrow the People’s will of who they wanted leading the executive branch.

My hope is Trump pardons Flynn and makes him financially whole as this was all undeserved.

  1. “Personally, I would love to work for Trump. I view him as a man of principles and morality.” Are you really that fricken blind? Or is it ignorance.

  2. You guys desperately need a decent proofreader. This article has numerous spelling errors, grammatical errors, and the like, and it is also writing at which the world’s worst hack would cringe. I won’t even get into the ridiculous, non-fact-based claims, as I expect nothing more and nothing less from this sad joke of a “newspaper,” and I honestly don’t really care. I’m sure you wouldn’t care about my opinion, as I’m one of those over-educated, bleeding heart liberals that is stupid enough to want every American to have health insurance so they don’t have to bankrupt themselves to pay for medical treatment. I’m one of those stupid liberals who wants this country to divert money from the military in order to help care for the refugees and asylum seekers I want allowed into this country. I’m pleased to admit that I want this country to heavily tax the rich in order to help poor people pay for housing and food and higher education. I want the lower and middle class to get tax breaks, and the very rich, and corporations, to pay high taxes!! I voted for Obama!! Twice!! I truly believe Donald Trump is an entitled, ignorant asshat who does not give a flying f**k about any of you guys who love him so much, as he only cares about getting richer. I also truly believe that, if I die today and it turns out that Jesus does judge my life, I will be all right, as I have done my best to live my life with love and compassion, and to look at every fellow living being as if they were Jesus himself. Jesus told us that “whatsoever we do unto the least of my brethren, you also do unto me,” and I have tried to do this. Have any of you ever considered that, by opposing universal health care and not wanting to accept refugees and asylum seekers into this country, and being in favor of cutting funds for food stamps and other safety net (“welfare”) programs, you just might be “doing unto the least of” Jesus’ brethren? Just think about it?

    1. News Flash. I voted for Obama once because I thought emotionally. Here’s what I thought, “Finally a Black Man in the White House, it’s about time.” What I neglected to do was my homework. I thought he did a terrible job first term and wouldn’t support him a 2nd term.

      I’m very much against multi-generational welfare and very much for bringing back excellence to public education which stopped happening some time ago.
      Ever heard this saying, ““Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach him how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” It’s a quote from the Chinese philosopher Lao Tzu, founder of Taoism. However, there are passages in the Bible that generally convey the same ideology. (Speaking of the Bible, we always have a Bible verse on our front page.) But, with poor education, no industry, few jobs and multi-generational welfare, we have young people growing up not knowing how to be productive, not knowing how to work. Instead, they add to the burden of an overburdened society through too many taxes and fees, learning to bilk the system. With a diminishing middle class, taxes, fees, rates on everything always going up, soon there will be no middle class. And then, where will all the money come from to continue to finance these welfare programs? Oh, right “The Rich.” Let’s go on.

      Public education. Calif was #1 in public education in the USA in the 1950’s. Today it’s 43rd. How about getting rid of bad teachers? You can’t. Why, BECAUSE, the Calif. Teachers Assn (UNION) is too powerful. Did you know that the majority of teachers are Democrats? Did you know that they get tenure after 2 years of teaching? Try to get rid of a bad teacher? Very, very hard. What about disciplining disruptive kids in class? You can’t. Why, because teachers are not allowed to. How do you teach when the class is being disrupted? So, we’re left with stupid children who inevitably become stupid adults…. go on welfare, become homeless, do drugs and alcohol, steal and go to prison where the taxpayer is left to support them. I never thought I’d say this, but I’m at the point where I think the teachers union should go away. At the very least their power diminished They’ve done more harm to education than good. If this doesn’t get turned around, (y’know, not being able to read, write or do math, etc), taxpayers are going to be clamoring for school closures and rightly so. Bad teachers will be thrown out en masse and rightly so.

      Now, I’m pretty aware that Pres. Trump will never get an award for being a faithful husband. But, I didn’t vote for him for that reason. Once a Clinton supporter, I started listening to rumblings about their past. Bill Clinton, another one that won’t get an award for being a faithful husband. Again, I didn’t vote for Bill because of that reason. I really thought the guy could do great things for this country. Now, I get to enjoy seeing Pres Trump correct some of the things Bill did and Obama did that didn’t turn out so great. (You can read 6 disadvantages of NAFTA and how it is being reworked by Trump.)

      About illegal aliens (like the caravan): We’re now seeing Mexico shutting the border between Mexico and Guatemala. We’re seeing Mexico bus these caravan people back for FREE to their countries. What’s wrong with legal immigration and vetting people like they’ve done for hundreds of years? What’s wrong with finding out if these people are healthy or not BEFORE allowing them into the country? And whats wrong with NOT paying for their medical treatment? Have they been vaccinated for anything? Do they have TB, hepatitis or HIV/Aids?

      On the other hand, 60 million abortions have been performed in our country since 1973 – Roe v Wade. Babies not wanted, but illegal aliens wanted? Try to figure that one out. What ever happened to the sanctity of life? But what’s worse? Taxpayers, some of whom believe abortion is tantamount to murder, are expected to pay for abortions through Medicaid/Medi-Cal even though we were promised in 1973 that we wouldn’t.

      Taking in illegal aliens does not an American make. Our country is already so far in debt, I cannot fathom how in the world it will ever dig itself out.

      Lastly, the new mantra is “Tax the rich.” Listen, the “rich” are not that stupid. That’s why so many are moving out of Calif along with moving their companies out of California because Calif. likes to tax anything and everything. If we want to see industry or manufacturing come to Del Norte County, we should be thinking of incentives; tax incentives to attract them and create the jobs that our people so desperately need. In the meantime, groups like True North Organizing Network, and places like Our Daily Bread Ministries and the Veterans organizations are working together with public and private entities to combat homelessness locally. I like to say a Hand Up, not a Hand Out. Hand Outs should only be temporary, in my opinion, in many cases. Based on your statement that you consider yourself to be overeducated, I would venture to be so bold as to guess that economics was never your major.

      To conclude I ask that you please watch your language as it does not reflect a Christian heart.

    2. You said: ” I also truly believe that, if I die today and it turns out that Jesus does judge my life, I will be all right, as I have done my best to live my life with love and compassion, and to look at every fellow living being as if they were Jesus himself. ”

      Hello Annie McGairy Brown.

      Treating people with love and compassion is a good work. My following statements do not minimize the importance of that.

      However, the Bible teaches that a person will die in their sins if they believe works will save them (from the wrath of God).
      Eternal life is a free gift (grace). Believe Jesus, and you will be saved. Simple truth.

      (2Timothy 1) “…. God, 9. who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,…”

      Grace and Peace.

    3. Dear Ms. Snowflake, a.k.a. Annie Brown,

      As always, I take criticism constructively and went back to see if my column indeed was as described: “This article has numerous spelling errors, grammatical errors, and the like, and it is also writing at which the world’s worst hack would cringe.” Liberal hyperbole has certainly not been lost on you as I found only one typo, a “how” which should have been “has”, and no spelling or grammatical errors. Perhaps it is the “style” which offends you?

      Liberals such as yourself don’t have a problem with authors who flaunt the edicts or norms of writing by not capitalizing words. Why should you have a problem with conversational English writing including incomplete sentences as long as the thoughts or ideas are conveyed?

      As for the lie that you don’t care, if you didn’t care you wouldn’t have responded. I would suggest you get specific about which facts I stated you don’t believe rather than loosely condemning all in a vain attempt to discredit the content and conclusions.

      As for you personal quest for salvation, I don’t believe Jesus or the Christian religion condones theft and you are a self described thief or unindicted co-conspirator with the rest of your ilk in the American Socialist/Communist party known as the Democratic Party. Lie to yourself but you don’t care what the rest of us think or want as many of us wouldn’t give a dime to your worthless causes. So you use politics to steal from those with money. By the way, the rich already pay the majority of taxes in our country. Ever heard of killing the golden goose?

      I really don’t care what you do with your own money as long as you personally earned it. You don’t get to cut the military, as Carter, Clinton, and Obama did, unless you don’t believe in the Constitution which makes it a duty of the Federal government to defend our borders and sovereignty. You are a liberal so that question has already been answered.

      As for The Donald being “.. an entitled, ignorant asshat who does not give a flying f**k about any of you guys who love him so much, as he only cares about getting richer”, I would like to know how you can claim he is either “entitled” or “ignorant” as he has been quite successful in the private business world in numerous venues and now is succeeding, despite all of the Swamp’s attempts to crush him.

      Those poor you so adore, Hispanics and Blacks with the lowest unemployment rates in history, are as ignorant as you are and continue to vote for those who would keep them economically and socially enslaved. Trump only cares about getting richer? Seems he is doing a little more than that.

      Finally, because I am not enthused about wasting so many electrons on the mentally confused and damaged, all of the programs you mentioned are “slavery” instead of the teaching how to fish model. You want people on food stamps? Why? That is demeaning. You want open borders? Try to leave this country and enter another illegally and see what those countries do. Universal health care? You mean free health care while we who have to fund it have to pay premiums the size of a house payment. Again, you are a thief.

      I would not put words in my mouth, if I were you, as I never claimed the stereotype of “over-educated” for or toward you. You are typical of the under-performers I had the pleasure of “breaking the curve” for in many of my collegiate classes. A co-worker once described people like you quite succinctly.

      “She is so smart, she is stupid” … enough said …

    4. I want to echo Mr. Ceremello’s response to Ms. Brown (a.k.a. bleeding heart liberal)… and add that I DO believe Jesus WAS THE quintessential “liberal.” He did in fact teach that we should help the least among us, feeding, clothing, housing, and if necessary, medicating them. And he admonished His followers to do these things IN HIS NAME; NOT in the name of Big Government. If Ms. Brown has a compulsion to do good deeds, LET HER DO THEM WITH HER OWN MONEY. IF she cares about fairness, equity, right vs. wrong, honesty, integrity, morality, and ethics, then she has no business supporting legalized THEFT. I will conclude by asking her the same question I ask every leftist who gleefully supports higher taxes on ‘the rich:’ Ms. Brown, HOW MUCH of my money, Mike’s money, or George Soros’ money are you or anyone else entitled to? I want to know! If we earn a dollar, HOW MUCH OF THAT ARE YOU ENTITLED TO TAKE BY FORCE? After you have provided a number, PLEASE reference the Biblical scripture which supports your theft of other people’s earnings? If you’re so highly educated, you should know that taxes aren’t voluntary and failure to pay what you or any other so-called progressive decides belongs to someone else, results in the taking of earnings by force. I have looked and looked and cannot find Jesus asserting anything remotely tyrannical. Did I miss something?

  3. This is a fantastic article Donna you are right having this man as a guest commentator for your NewPaper he is always spot on!
