Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, August 25, 2016
<> on January 6, 2016 in Burns, Oregon.

Ryan Bundy, the eldest son of rancher Cliven Bundy of Nevada was beaten up by Multnomah County Detention Center prison guards for refusing to allow the government to remove a bullet lodged in his upper right arm. Mr. Bundy was one of the passengers in Lavoy Finicum’s truck on the day it was randomly fired upon by FBI agents and Oregon State Police officers. Mr. Bundy’s wrist and thumb were both dislocated in the jailhouse incident, and his head was smashed into a wall. During jury selection he was present in the courtroom and he looked like he had two black eyes according to eyewitnesses…

Donald Trump Delivers Major Economic Policy Speech in Detroit, Michigan

The room was packed with cheering supporters, but there were also the usual protestors with more free time on their hands than brains in their head. Donald Trump delivered a major speech today on economic policy in Detroit, Michigan, but before he could even open his mouth the pundits in the mainstream media on National Public Radio had already dismissed his economic plan as a total failure…

Facebook Sides with Islamic Extremists for Money

We have all heard how Islamic extremists are using social media to advance their terrorist activities and obtain new Muslim recruits. It is a well-known fact that the FBI which didn’t recommend an indictment against crooked Hillary Clinton is always looking into the accounts of Facebook users for any signs of radical activity. That is why they obtained a search warrant to look into the Facebook accounts of Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik. They were the two devotees of the “religion of peace “ who committed the massacre in San Bernardino…

A Conspiracy Like No Other

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, July 30, 2016
Ammon and Ryan Bundy

Webster defines a conspiracy as a secret agreement to perform a wrongful or unlawful act. There are many different kinds of conspiracies, but they all contain two essential elements. They all include the element of secrecy and they all include the intent to do harm. They all begin with a basic desire to commit evil. No one has ever been accused of planning a conspiracy to do good. That is no one until Ammon and Ryan Bundy. They are prisoners of conscience in an unconscionable prison…

Republicans have turned a corner but we are facing another, and it’s bigger than the one we just passed. We have miraculously managed to award the Republican nomination for President to Donald J. Trump… a man who truly loves this country. In doing so we have succeeded in defeating the RNC and the entire progressive establishment of the Republican Party… Reince Priebus, Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Mitt Romney, Ted Cruz, John Kasich, all the Bushes, John Bachelor, Mark Levin, the Koch brothers and many, many others , both puppets and puppet masters alike. We have prevented these conspirators from dumping Trump and stealing the nomination at the GOP National Convention in Cleveland, but the battle is only half over…

It was obvious from his speech last night on the floor of the Republican National Convention that Ted Cruz still has political ambitions… very big political ambitions… political ambitions that are much bigger than just being the junior Senator from the State of Texas. In fact, from the speech that he gave last night on the floor of the Convention it is obvious that his political ambitions are even bigger than his head is. We haven’t finished the 2016 Presidential Election and he is already running for President in 2020. He is hoping that Donald Trump will lose the election in 2016 so he can run against Hillary in 2020. Imagine the nerve of this guy…

The little court room was packed at the Portland, Oregon Federal Court house to hear the attorneys for Ammon and Ryan Bundy argue their respective motions on why they should be released from pretrial custody. It was the last item on the court’s calendar today which had to do with the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in January of 2016.

Living in an Undeclared State of Martial Law

Tiananmen Square tanks

When you think of martial law you probably think of tanks rolling down the streets or soldiers standing on street corners carrying machine guns. In 1989 we saw both of these things happen when the Chinese government forcibly ended a month long demonstration by university students in Tiananmen Square. The Chinese Communist Party believed those students were a threat to their hold on power. In America our political system is very stable. Until recently there has been no real threat to either of the two major political Parties. The Democrats and the Republicans keep taking turns at the government feeding trough while they lead our country down the road to ruin and the New World Order…

British Vote to leave the E.U. is Good News for Europeans, but Bad News for the Architects of the New World Order

The British vote to leave the European Union is good news for Europeans, and it is good news for Americans too. It was not a vote against the European Union as much as it was a vote in favor of retaining British national sovereignty. It was the acknowledgement that the people of the U.K. want to be governed by their own elected leaders rather than by the faceless bureaucrats of the European Union or by the un-elected members of the European Parliament. It proves that the British people do not want to surrender their independence and that people everywhere want more control over their lives, not less control…

Time to End the Occupation of Oregon by the Federal Government

The controversy over the Federal government’s use and control of land in Oregon didn’t begin with the occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge nor will it end with the death of Lavoy Finicum or the arrest of Ammon and Ryan Bundy on federal charges stemming from their month long protest in Harney County. Their peaceful demonstration at the Refuge was intended to call attention to the Federal Government’s unconstitutional occupation of 700 million acres of land in twelve Western States. The dispute over the management of public lands will not be settled at their trials because it won’t even be addressed at their trials. They are merely being tried on criminal charges resulting from their failure to obey police orders to leave the Refuge…

He has been getting away with murder just about every day for the last eight years.

Joint State-Federal Plan to Remove Four Dams on Klamath River Approved… The War on America’s Ranchers and Farmers Continues.

Not only is the Federal Government waging a procrastinated war on America’s ranchers. Dwight and Steven Hammond, Cliven, Carol, Ammon, and Ryan Bundy, and Jeanette Finicum can all testify to that. Her late husband Robert LaVoy Finicum was recently shot dead in Oregon for objecting to the government’s unconstitutional land use polices. The Feds are not just waging a war on ranchers. They are also waging a war of attrition against farmers in the West… With the help of the Nation’s first LGBT Governor Kate Brown and the entire Oregon Congressional delegation which consists of five Democrats and one RINO Republican, the final steps have been taken to remove four operating dams on the Klamath River…

Through their innumerable trials and tribulations they became convinced that their destiny was to be free, Soon a consensus emerged that something had to be done to facilitate that goal.

Now in a matter of only two short weeks the price of gasoline has risen back up to almost three dollars a gallon again.

The Kaaba and the Kingdom

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, February 7, 2015
Kaaba in Mecca 5

Is it possible for Muslims to reform their own religion while the Kaaba is still standing and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia still exists or will the Saudi’s desert Kingdom have to be toppled first and the Kaaba destroyed before their old religious order can be eliminated? Will our strategic alliance with the Saudis have to be ended before a real Islamic reformation can be advanced? Some say that the late King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia was a “reformer” but the truth is that the Saudi royal family and the Kaaba are actually standing in the way of real Islamic reform…

Done with the GOP!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, January 12, 2015
Un-Gop logo BIG

Tolerance without discretion is not a virtue so today I have quit the G.O.P. I have decided to stop being tolerant of progressives in the Republican Party who are cooperating with Democrats to fundamentally transform the United States of America. I am done with the GOP. I will not cooperate with the progressive establishment of the GOP who want to destroy our constitutional Republic so I went down to the county elections office and I switched my Party registration to un-AFFILIATED. I registered as “not a member of any political party”… and I suggest you do the same…

America’s Fascination with Political Dynasties – The Big Push is On… To Plant Another Bush in the White House in 2016.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, January 3, 2015
JebBushbest

America has always had a fascination with political dynasties. This fascination goes all the way back to the founding of our country. The first family that can lay claim to being a political dynasty in America is not the Bush’s or the Clinton’s. It wasn’t even the Kennedy’s… But alas there is no political dynasty in America quite like the Bush family…

When is the Price of Oil and Gas Going to Stop Coming Down?…. ISIS Knows!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, December 17, 2014
gas prices

They say that whatever goes up must come down… so down and down it goes, the price of oil and gas and where it stops nobody knows. Actually that’s not true. ISIS knows. The Islamic State knows when the downward spiral of gasoline prices is actually going to come to an end because they are the ones who are actually causing it. They are causing the current instability in the oil and gas markets…

What in the World was Pope Francis Thinking as He Prayed with an Imam Facing Mecca?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, December 4, 2014
Pope Francis and Imam of Blue Mosque

Pope Francis recently travelled to Istanbul where he met with the Imam of the Blue Mosque. Pope Francis and the Imam prayed together while they were both facing Mecca. It is a Muslim tradition to pray facing the east in the direction of the two most holy cities of Islam… Mecca and Medina. I don’t know what in the world Pope Francis was praying about or why he was looking in the direction of Mecca for answers to his prayers, but I am certain that the Imam was praying to Allah…

Stopping the Progressive Transformation of America, Defeating Democrats Now and Beating the Republican Establishment in 2016

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, November 4, 2014
Midterm Elections 2014

As soon as the 2014 Midterm Elections are over conservatives need to quit the Republican Party in droves. We need to leave the GOP in numbers large enough that they begin to take notice. If millions of conservatives change our Party affiliation from Republican to independent or non-affiliated then the Republican Party finally pay attention to us and they will not attribute their recent success at the polls to the ridiculous notion that Americans actually voted for them rather than just against their opponents…

A Perfect Example of Why You just Can’t Trust the Mainstream Media Anymore – Why is the Price of Gasoline Really Going Down?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, October 16, 2014
gas prices

National Public Radio recently ran a story on the plummeting price of gas and oil. In their story they speculated that it is due to everything from increased oil production by OPEC and non OPEC member countries to the rapidly rising value of the dollar. Their story is a perfect example of why we just can’t trust the mainstream media anymore to deliver the news…

One Hundred Years from Teddy Roosevelt to Barack Obama

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, October 6, 2014
Teddy Roosevelt

Is America becoming the world’s biggest bully? Can the United States just simply bomb other countries into becoming democracies? That’s what we have been trying to do in the Middle East in Iraq and Afghanistan for the past thirteen years. For over a decade we have been trying to bomb the Middle East into democracy, but it hasn’t worked out very well. It didn’t work too well in Libya and it certainly didn’t work out very well in Iraq. Hopefully Afghanistan will turn out to be another story, but now we are starting to bomb Syria and Iraq all over again. It is Shock and Awe revisited. My only question is this… Are we really convincing Muslims in the Middle East and around the world to love democracy or to hate the democracy that enables us to do this to them?

Lies, More Lies, and Continued Political Doubletalk about Ukraine

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, August 30, 2014
Viktor Yanukovych

Russia isn’t the only country that is lying about their involvement in Ukraine. The United States is lying too and so is the European Union. No one is telling you the whole truth about what is actually going on in Ukraine and why, but the one who has been lying the most is the Obama Administration. The real reason that America is in Ukraine has more to do with the price of oil and natural gas than it has to do with democracy…

Will There Ever be Any Real Winners and Losers in the Middle East ?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Friday, August 1, 2014
Israel Hamas War best

In life there are always winners and losers. In love and war just as in peace and politics there are always those who emerge victorious and take the prize and others who don’t. There are winners and losers in every human endeavor whether it is for the prize of a young girl’s affections in a friendly contest over matters of the heart or it is the for a prized seat in Congress in a hard fought political campaign. Whether it is for control of a small territory like Gaza or control of an entire country like Iraq or Syria, or for that matter Egypt, Libya, and Ukraine there are always winners and losers in life… but not to a liberal.

A Malaysian civilian airplane carrying 298 passengers including 15 crew members exploded and crashed into a wheat field in eastern Ukraine this week and the immediate speculation by everyone concerned is that it was mistakenly shot down by Ukrainians fighting for their independence from the central government in Kiev. Western media sources report that it was shot down by a Russian made surface to air missile that was fired by Russian speaking civilians in eastern Ukraine however local residents in the region deny the allegations…

If some conservatives had half a brain they might actually be a political force to contend with, but sadly as recent Tea Party loses in three important Republican State Primaries show… in Kentucky, Georgia, and Oregon there is no danger of that ever happening, not at least any time soon. In fact in every State except Texas the establishment backed candidates won their Primary races handily to the great delight and satisfaction of the progressives who control the Republican Party…

They are still crying over the referendum in Crimea as if it was some kind of a tragic injustice to actually let the people of Crimea have a voice in determining their own future. They are still complaining about the results of this special election and how the Russian Duma subsequently annexed the territory after it became clear that most Crimeans actually preferred a political re-unification with Russia to their former status as a semi-autonomous region of Ukraine…

The Foibles of “Dumb-ocracy” – The Search for Intelligent Life in Politics

Constitution 5

If you are looking for intelligent life in politics I have just two words for you…. Good Luck! In politics nothing operates the way it should. Money is always the principal driving factor behind everything that gets done… every vote that is taken, every law that gets passed, every program that gets implemented, and every politician that gets elected. Nothing else in the entire physical universe behaves the same way that politicians do and nothing else in the whole world functions exactly the same way that politics does…

Don’t Crimea River Over Ukraine – Crimea Referendum in Former Soviet Republic Favors Re-unification with Russia

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, March 19, 2014
Vladimir Putin and Angela Merkel

It all started with a little lie, but that was so long ago that it really doesn’t matter… or does it? What matters of course in Ukraine today is that the residents of Crimea just held a public referendum on the question of whether or not they want to become a part of Russia again after a popular uprising in Kiev overthrew their democratically elected government and left most Crimeans feeling like they were out in the cold. What is the connection between the popular Orange Revolution in Ukraine and the fracking revolution right here in America? Well the result of the referendum in Crimea was that about ninety five percent of the people who cast their ballots in the hastily called special election said that they want Crimea to become a part of Russia again. Of course that doesn’t seem to matter to the people of Ukraine, nor to the European Union, nor to the United States of America which only wants to capitalize on the political turmoil and seize the opportunity to export American natural gas derived from fracking to Europe in order to increase demand and drive up prices here at home…

male prostitution

Recently the B.B.C. ran a story on the lucrative male escort business. That’s right. They did a shocking story just for ratings on male prostitutes. If you are a normal, heterosexual woman you will probably be surprised to learn that women aren’t the primary clients of these British male prostitutes… Nope. Their customers are mainly other men. Of course I am using the term men or male rather loosely here to signify anyone who is born with one X chromosome and one Y chromosome…

Creating a Democrat Police State Right Here in America !

We are creating a democratic, police State right here in America. At least the Obama Administration is trying to. It is hard to believe I know and it sounds like a contradiction in terms, but it really is happening right before our eyes. The Democrat police state actually does exist. All of our phone calls both foreign and domestic are being monitored on Verizon and tracked by the N.S.A. Verizon is the largest cell phone network. They are not just monitoring our phone calls though. They are also tracking our emails, tweets, and texts over the internet…

Out of Control E.P.A. and Power Hungry Oregon D.E.Q. Claims they Found Levels of Toxic Mercury in the McKenzie River.

Goodpasture Covered Bridge getting a new roof

The McKenzie River is already one of Oregon’s cleanest and most protected rivers. Certain parts of it are designated as a “Wild and Scenic River” by the United States government and they receive the strictest Federal protections. The McKenzie River is well known to fly fishermen and drift boat enthusiasts alike. People from all over the world come to Oregon to fish in its clean waters and ride its lovely rapids, but wait… The rapids aren’t the only thing that are raging. The battle for control of the river is raging again too. The Oregon Department of Environmental Quality says they recently measured trace amounts of mercury in two species of migratory fish that were caught in Springfield near the mouth of the McKenzie River where it joins the Willamette River. The two fish they tested were a Northern Pikeminnow and a Large Scale Sucker fish which make their home in both the Willamette River and in the McKenzie River…

The temperature outside is a chilly minus ten degrees. I am not in Alaska mind you. I am in Oregon. I am not even in the mountains of Oregon. I am in the central Willamette Valley where the elevation is only about 400 feet above sea level. Is this global warming, climate change, or is it about time for an explanation change? Now there is a new Arctic air mass heading right for our Midwest States and the people back there are bracing for extreme cold. I think it is about time for an explanation change. I think it is time to re-examine the politically correct wisdom or the lack thereof about what is actually going on with the weather…

Conservative Victory Strategy

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, November 16, 2013
Un-Gop logo BIG

What the Republican Party won’t do for America, real conservatives can. But we will first need to develop an effective strategy. The Republican Party will not be the vehicle through which conservatives are going to redeem our country. It is not going to be the vessel by which we restore respect for the Constitution, re-awaken traditional values in our society, or return to the basic fundamental principles of personal responsibility and limited government. It is not going to prevent the United States from borrowing more money that it doesn’t have, or stop the Federal Reserve Board from printing fiat money from out of nowhere which is backed up by virtually nothing. The Republican Party such as it be, is never going to implement the much needed policy changes at the Federal level that will stop the United States government from running up large annual deficits or allow us to pay off our huge Federal Debt. So what can we do about that…

In case you haven’t heard, Congress has raised the National Debt Ceiling again, and the Destroyer in Chief in the White House has eagerly affixed his signature to the deficit enabling legislation which allows the Federal government to continue to borrow money like it is going out of style. It effectively loads Americans up with another one trillion dollars’ worth of crushing Federal debt…

Of course they won’t do it just like they didn’t do it the last time or the time before that. There will be the usual fear mongering by Democrats in government, and liberals and progressives in the mainstream media about how we absolutely have to raise the Federal Debt Ceiling again, or else there will be a national and worldwide economic catastrophe of epic proportions.

The Chaplain of the U.S. Senate Barry Black prayed in Congress, “Oh Lord, deliver us from government by crises.” As the Democrats and Republicans in Congress joust with each other again over balancing the Federal Budget and defunding the Affordable Care Act, it is clear that we live in two different Americas. It isn’t the proverbial America of the rich and the poor that I am referring to, or a country of the haves and the have nots. No… I am specifically talking about a country where almost half of the voters still believe in limited government and cherish all of our personal freedoms. We think that the Federal government should restrain itself by strictly adhering to and following the Constitution, while the other half of the electorate …
