Hammer Smashing
This idea that we must “unify” to “reach across the aisle” and sing Kumbaya is both foolish and deadly. Instead we finish them off. We do exactly to them what they were trying to do to us. We end them. All of them.

USA -(Ammoland.com)- I’m convinced that years from now, historians will look back at this week's election and see it for what it was, the people winning back their freedom from an out of control government.

A second American revolution that saved the nation from itself, without having to fire a shot.

The constitution and the people did their jobs in unison and it worked, thank God, but what happens now?

To answer that, we need to understand what occurred and how we got here in the first place.

We must respond to the question, “What did Americans actually say?” Then and only then, can America avert another disaster in her future.

In the space this column provides, I’ll keep the answer short. Simply put, we said #%@& you to the ruling elites of both parties.

Michael Moore, of all people, was right when he said that Donald Trump’s election “would be the biggest %$^& you the world has ever seen.”

But what exactly, does that mean? What, in fact, did we say?

If we understand the answer, and we govern accordingly, we will never again put ourselves in the position that one election could deal a fatal blow to the America we grew up loving.

Let’s start here. This was not an Obama thing. In fact, Obama was merely the manifestation of the nearly 250 years it took to get here. His election and his attempted takedown of our nation were visible in hindsight going back over 100 years to the election of Woodrow Wilson and the advent of what became the modern progressive movement. Since the election of the 28th president in 1913, that progressive cancer has metastasized to infect everything from our entertainment industries and our schools, colleges, and universities, to newsrooms, etc. It has completely taken over what used to be the Democrat party, and in large measure, we’ve allowed it to happen.

We placed our trust in Republicans believing their rhetoric that they would stop the liberal madness when in fact, once elected they fed off the same trough. We waited dangerously long to fix it. The result, of course, was the election of Barack Obama. He was the Holy Grail of progressivism designed to be the final nail in the coffin of conservatism, the end of the Republican party which would have cemented progressive rule, permanently. He was to have placed the progressive flag over the White House and had the wrong thing happened earlier this week, he would have won.

We can never let that happen again, but how do we stop it? It’s easy. We finish them off. We do exactly to them what they were trying to do to us. We end them. All of them.

This idea that we must “unify” to “reach across the aisle” and sing Kumbaya is both foolish and deadly. Like a wounded but very much alive poisonous snake, it will remain defiant and regenerate to strike again until we do what we say we were going to do through the election of Donald Trump. We remove the destructive policies of the left that have given rise to decades of welfare, hopelessness, and poverty. We allow freedom to flourish; we eliminate the restrictions on our freedom, and we unleash great American ingenuity by getting this cancerous government off our backs and out of our wallets, schools, universities, etc.

In essence, we do what we say we were going to do and let freedom itself fix the problem. In so doing, we kill off progressive liberalism forever.

In speaking of gun control in the same context, Jim Irvine of Buckeye Firearms was a guest on my daily show this week when he reminded us we are now in a position to end that phony “debate.”

To do so, we enact national reciprocity; we remove the burdens placed on law-abiding citizens and we destroy the false notion of “gun free zones.” As in the economic examples above, a free people will flourish, crime will reduce even further than it has, and the desire for a government to enact more “gun control’s” will perish in the face of freedom thereby relinquishing the enemies of our rights to the ashbin of history with the rest of progressive America.

Yes, we can destroy the demonic progressive disease that has infected this nation and it should be simple. We remove the restrictions and regulations that such an ideology depends on and we unleash a free people to be free again. We invite our enemies to join us, and if they refuse, we leave them where they belong, in that ashbin of history.

Yes sir, there’s a new sheriff in town and his name is Donald Trump. If he does what the people elected him to do, he’ll kick in the doors to the White House on January 20th and utter the famous lines from Kevin Costner’s Wyatt Earp character from the movie of the same name, “I’m Wyatt Earp and it all ends NOW!”

    1. .
      PRESIDENT DONALD J. TRUMP will be the STRONG and BOLD LEADER that America MUST have to lead LOYAL AMERICAN CHRISTIAN PATRIOTS in the confrontation with , and annihilation of , the dark , malevolent and insidious forces of Liberalism , Neoliberalism , Progressivism . Collectivism , Communism , Atheism , Secularism , Islamism , the New World Order , Environmentalism and Political Correctness that threaten to DESTROY all that is Godly in America by slowly rotting away the Christian foundation of our once great Republic !

    2. WHO the Hell was that guy ?? He sure wasn’t the Michael Moore I have known. The Anti Gun, anti Republican, Anti Conservative.
      Have I lost my mind?? I actually agreed with almost everything he said. He hit the nail on the head then hammered it home. Thank God Hilary and the DemocRATS did not listen to his warning.

    3. If California is the bellwether for the country then we can only hope it is successful with its desire to secede from the Union. Hopefully it takes Washington state’s King and Pierce counties with it. Unfortunately, it won’t come to pass and we will be stuck with the terrible reality that California is here to stay and other population centers are likely to follow suit. Back on subject, Obama was transparent, even prior to his election, that he was here to tear the fabric of American society into pieces and burn it at the alter of progressivism. He despises the republican political process – hindsight is not a good thing, vision is; unfortunately, Americans subjected to the liberal education system have not been taught use their analytical skills to ferret out the baloney fed to them by the likes of Obama and the “new” democrats, and to respect their analytically-derived visions. Instead they listen to the tired litany of unicorns and fairy dust that is perpetually preached within the liberal/progressive’s parochial and subversive movement, and they believe it. The funny thing is that these “soldiers of progressivism” that we see in the streets protesting Trump are so ignorant they can’t connect the dots and see that they are being used by the very rich, we used to refer to them as the Gnomes of Zurich, to protect and ensure their position at the top of the chain of power. Soros is the most visible of the gnomes but there are many and they know that they must tear down our democratic republic to ensure their place and safety as the top dogs. To succeed, the American people must be made impotent, thus the demand for gun control and eventually confiscation. It is not about innocent deaths or gun violence, it is about having absolute control over an impotent population with total dependence on the government for life’s basics; a system that keeps the population in subjugation. Think of the old feudal system and you will have a pretty good picture of the eventual outcome of the movement if it succeeds. By the way and if you are wondering, Bloomberg is merely a tool of the gnomes, not their equal, but he is doing a damn good job for them.

      We must continue to educate people on what is happening and why it must not happen. It will be an uphill battle all the way and probably never end but we must keep harping on it, my friends, if we are to save the republic.

    4. As we have already seen since election day. Trump is softening his stances on many things that he was an absolute about. If he follows the process once he is shown the current inner workings of how the govt is actually run and how the secrets are kept he will jump aboard their bandwagon and continue the march that way and as this article is saying shall stop at his door will be forgotten.
      Sadly as we all know once you get to the finish line in most things of any importance you follow what is already in place. I am hoping Trump does not do this as he will only be there one term if he does. With the problems we have in this country due to throwing all the money to the wars over the past 15 years we are in a pretty bad way at home. Streets and highways, water plants and the delivery of it to the homes. Local govt problems hampered by no money to fix things beyond regular yearly budgets, healthcare that needs a big redo and pricing brought back to this planet. Put tariffs on the products taken out of this country to build in places like Mexico and other nations if they come back here to be sold. If that is done most likely bring back some businesses if they are taxed and charges tariffs to bring the products back at a higher rate than if made here to start with.
      If we are made to enforce the existing laws on the books, use what we currently have and reduce govt in our lives I think it can heal this country. Having people in his inner circle who are not what most of us call completely honest and above board will make his ability to make us believe in him diminish fast .
      Having a single term president will not get most of these problems we face including shutting down the wars repaired or done. What we need is a president that will work with both houses and get budgets passed, bill enacted or replaced or removed to move this country forward once more.
      If you actually look at a sitting president they are there to WORK for 3 years. A whole year or more is used for election or re-election campaigns so we have 3 years to get his action as promised on the fast track to completion

    5. Wilson was not the beginning of the end, as you intimate. No, for that we must look back a further sixty years or so. There was a President who was elected with a mandate…. to DO something about secession and those nasty Sutheners. Da noive a dem boyz, not wantin ta keep payin our illegal tariffs and all.

      Early on, “honest” (please don’t make me upchuck) Abe staged a false flag attack to “justify” the start of the war… HE had declared an illegal blockade of southern ports and OUR (including their) Navy was busy enforcing that blockade.. destroying and seizing privately owned merchant ships. Lincoln’s Navy took over Fort SUmpter in Charleston Harbor as his operating base, it being inconveniently far to maintain his fleet from the northern ports. The southerners, now part of a different nation, decided the seizure of THEIR port and fort, was not OK with them… and attacked that fort. All we hear about today is the “firing on Fort Sumpter”. Too bad no one ever mentions the illegal foreign occupation of Fort Sumpter. Lincoln then proceeded to trash what he could of our Constitution, the one under which this nation was voluntarily formed out of thirteen (more being added later) sovereign states, and since voluntarily formed and nothing specifically prohibited leaving it just as it was joined, there was no violation of law. Lincoln proceeded, over the next years, to stomp on states’ rights, accrue power to the Federal government it was never intended to have,
      Yes, it was Abe lincoln kicked the barn doors off their hinges and opened the floodgates that have led, incrementally, to the pass we have today, where FedGov is all, does all, controls all, gets all, and spends all and then some.
      And it is THAT system, deeply entranched, that Trump was elected to reverse.

      Sad story is, from present appearances, that Trump is busily lining up for his government team far too many of the establishment kingpins….. To effect the mandate we hav given him, he MUST chose wise and skilled men who are NOT part of the ruling elite. Men who have not been connected to the government machine. Men who cannot be bought.

    6. I agree with all you said Mark, but don’t buy into the Hollywood myth of Wyatt Earp. He was definitely not an honest, stalwart lawman. I live not too many miles from Tombstone and have a pretty good knowledge of him.

    7. In addition, if they committed a crime, prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law. No more free passes. If this is to remain a country of laws it is necessary to follow those laws. Now is the time to act. Congress,you have no excuse now get to work!

    8. There will be debate, we can’t start taking them out and shooting them as yet. We must define the terms and vocabulary of the debate. This has been a powerful tool of theirs. Words mean things, and they need to be ours. We must be relentless in taking down their illogic. We must show them for the fools they are, every time they venture outside their lairs. Facts must matter. Logic must rule. We know we have facts and logic. We must calmly and patiently make sense, so that making sense becomes the normal thing

      Then there’s the workings of society. We need to retake control of the curriculum of the primary schools. Teach math that works and can be understood. Teach English. Read classics, not these dreadful things where someone always dies. Teach real science, not indoctrinate kids into the climate cult. Teach history and respect for the accomplishments of those who have accomplished. Stop raising idiots that need remediation upon entry into university. Encourage those who can really benefit from a degree tostudy something useful. Encourage those who won’t to learn something useful elsewhere.

      We have our work cut out for us.

      1. dismantle, overnight, the entire Federal Department of Education. Then let each state deal with education on THEIR terms. FedGov have NO business meddling in education at any level. THAT is how its reformed… As control gets closer to the parents whose children are in each local school, those issues will be resolved as if by magic. It would also return close to half a trillion dollars annually to the citizens who earned that money in the first place. The bloated US Department of Education is a money hole, and corrupt as a barrel of maggots. More so, because the maggots only do what maggots do, and they have no agenda to fundamentally change the other maggots into their own image.

        1. You’re extremely obtuse, sir. Lest you forget, the “Bard” also penned another classic among many entitled “The Merchant of Venice.” Some beleive it to be anti semetic, I, on the other hand consider it to be a true rendition of Zionist Jews, and their conniving trickery.

    9. Sorry I missed this article. If we can eliminate whole Fedzilla departments, agencies while firing hundreds of thousands of civil servants and other feeders at the public test maybe be can take back our country. Maybe; I fear elections may NOT have consequences.

    10. I like the direction of the article and agree with it. I think we should tone down take out, kill comments because I understand them but we need to reach everyone with the conservatism that we’re wanting to spread. Making people understand why progressives are bad for everyone is our goal and reaching everyone is the only way hit an even higher mark than we just hit. We can’t get 100% but we definitely can spread liberty and get more people deeply involved especially when we’re making clear and positive changes in front of them.

      1. Tell me you didn’t pull “the fighting pimps” out of your rectal cavity. Where did you imagine such a silly thought? I think I have read many of the same books, on the old west as you, I imagine, and never have I been entertained by that phrase. Please show your reference. Thanks

        1. Don’t buy into the Hollywood myth of Wyatt Earp. He was indeed a pimp, horsethief and part of a frontier mafia run by Hyman “Hoodoo” Brow.n. If you can get a copy of the two volume set Wyatt Earp, the Man and the Myth by Ed Bartholomew, by all means read it. He was an opportunistic thug working on both sides of the law. If you want to admire a frontier lawman try Bill Tilghman, John Slaughter or Jeff Milton.

      1. Except the author forgets 47% of voters voted for Trump and 47% for HiLIARy. So who gets to control the popular agenda? The media won’t be changing; nor will the popular culture. Lots of wishful thinking going on; it won’t be ending ‘NOW’ by any means.

    11. Mark you are spot on. Mr Trump and those who put him in power, must complete the work begun this past Tuesday. It is imperative that this ” new birth of freedom” (as Lincoln wrote) is not fumbled away because of supposed “fairness” but rather is pressed home to insure that Americanism is our motto rather than globalism…which stands for subjugation not liberty. Keep the pressure on because the enemy of liberty is not just Chuck Schumer but Karl Rove and his ilk as well.
