Donald Trump’s First Hundred Days… From the Art of the Deal to the Art of the “Shpiel”

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, April 26, 2017

The first hundred days of Donald Trump’s Presidency has been a rather mixed bag so far. It is true that he did appoint Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court to replace Justice Scalia who will be sorely missed, and his appointment has been confirmed by the United States Senate in spite of the fact that not a single Democrat voted for him, but that had a lot more to do with Mitch McConnell then it did with Donald Trump…

Making a Big Deal about North Korea’s Little Dictator

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, April 25, 2017

The man who wrote The Art of the Deal, America’s 45th President Donald J. Trump is making a big deal right now about North Korea’s little dictator. During the Presidential campaign he promised to put America first, but ever since he took up residence at the White House he has turned his attention to faraway countries in places like the Middle East and the South China Sea. Instead of putting America first…

Who is Using Chemical Weapons in Syria and Why

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, April 8, 2017

We are told to believe that Bashar al Assad is using chemical weapons against his own people. There is something obviously wrong about that statement. The government of Syria is more than just one man. It is more than just Bashar al Assad. Why is our government and the American media making this an attack against one man. Why are we making it about one man when we are really being asked to believe that the government of Syria is using chemical weapons against its own people? …

The Fickle and Whimsical Nature of the Law

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, March 20, 2017

The occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge is over… It ended in January 2016 with the tragic shooting death of Lavoy Finicum and the arrest of Ammon and Ryan Bundy and about two dozen other protestors who were with them at the Refuge, but the occupation of half the State of Oregon by the Federal government still goes on to this day. In fact…

State of Disarray

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, February 28, 2017

President Trump will deliver his first State of the Union Address tonight to a deeply divided nation. It Is not nice to see the bad state of disarray that our country is in right now. Cognizant of 240 years of tradition and protocol will Donald Trump tone down his political rhetoric in order to be politically correct, … or will he be true to himself and tell us the unvarnished truth about the sad state of affairs in our country?…

The judicial system in America is facing a fundamental and philosophical crisis. It is the same type of existential crisis that our political system is facing.

Why the Electoral College

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, January 1, 2017

The Democrat Party and the mainstream media keep playing up the fact that Donald Trump didn’t win the popular vote in 2016. Since he didn’t “win” a majority of popular votes, it is their opinion that he shouldn’t be the 45th President of the United States. The rest of the world looks on with mixed sense of curiosity and dismay as opposing sides with conflicting opinions argue it out on the evening news… Even in the world’s oldest republic (We are not a democracy. We are a republic) 240 years after our country was founded we still don’t agree on how to elect a President…

Judge in Malheur Occupation Trial Finally Rules on Ryan Payne’s Change of Plea Motion…

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, December 29, 2016

The old adage, “Better late than never” doesn’t really apply to Ryan Payne… He is one of the few defendants in the Oregon Standoff Trial who pled guilty to charges of preventing Federal officers from doing their job through the use of threats or intimidation. He pled guilty under duress and only in order to receive concurrent sentences in Oregon and Nevada on another federal indictment he will have to stand trial over next month involving the Bunkerville Standoff at the Bundy Ranch in 2014. For Ryan Payne it would have been better if the Judge had never ruled on his motion to withdraw that guilty plea…

Why John McCain is Determined to Destroy the Legacy of America’s 40th President

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, December 27, 2016

It all goes back to something that President Dwight Eisenhower mentioned in his Farewell Address to the Nation. He warned us about the dangers of the “Military Industrial Complex”. Eisenhower used this phrase to describe the dangers posed by our industrial and manufacturing sectors as a result of the massive military buildup we had just gone through in order to defeat NAZI Germany and Japan during World War II. John McCain is an old cold war veteran whose political views were shaped in an era of confrontation between nuclear superpowers. Everything is black and white to him. He sees everything in terms of good and evil. America is good and Russia is evil. That’s how he sees the world. That’s how he will always see the world…

Barack Obama’s America

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, November 5, 2016

WHAT KIND of a country locks people up who have not been convicted of a crime?

WHAT KIND of a Justice Department keeps them in jail after they have been found innocent of all charges?

WHAT KIND OF a judicial system allows their attorney to be tazed, handcuffed, and arrested right there in the courtroom after they are acquitted because he questioned the government’s authority to detain them? What kind of a government throws its full weight and power behind a vendetta against one American family in order in order to break them for simply standing up for their rights? Our country does. Under Barack Obama America does.

For the last sixteen years I have watched as both Democrat and Republican Administrations have been misleading the American people, telling lies, and spreading false narratives. The first false narrative was about Sadaam Hussein possessing weapons of mass destruction. That led to the invasion of Iraq and the toppling of his regime… It also destabilized the Middle East and led to the current nightmare of mass Muslim emigration to Europe and America.. Way to go George Bush.

Ammon and Ryan Bundy – The Other Occupation and the Other Trial

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, October 26, 2016

In case you don’t already know it there are actually two trials going on at the same time both involving the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge. One trial is about the occupation of the Refuge which lasted for 41 days and resulted in one death and at least fourteen persons charged with conspiracy. The other trial concerns the occupation of 700 million acres of land in twelve States by the Federal Government. This occupation has been going on for over a century. In some cases it has been going on ever since the War Between the States ended. This occupation involves 25 % of the land in the entire United States…

The most important aspect of the occupation trial of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge won’t be discussed in the courtroom during the trial. It isn’t going to be debated in the jury’s presence. That is because the judge won’t allow it to be discussed or debated. You can count on that…

“Potty Politics” – When the Government Hits the Crapper

It barely delivered a half gallon of water to flush the contents of the toilet bowl down the drain… just a half gallon. That’s because the United States government is following the mandates of the United Nations and it wants all of us to use a lot less water to flush our poop down the drain. Pardon my pun but our government doesn’t want us to waste water on wastewater…

In a surprise move by prosecutors just before the trial began all of the charges against another defendant, Pete Santilli were dropped, but Mr. Santilli will remain in Federal custody until his other trial in Nevada begins later this year on similar charges relating to his involvement in the standoff with the BLM at the Bundy Ranch…

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 basic elements. They all include an element of secrecy and they all include the intent to do harm. They all begin with a desire to commit evil for some personal gain. No one has ever been indicted for planning a conspiracy to do good. That is no one until Ammon and Ryan Bundy. They are prisoners of conscience in an unconscionable prison…

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 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…

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…

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

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…

Is Ted Cruz the Republican Party’s Answer to Barack Obama?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, January 9, 2016

Is Ted Cruz is the Republican Party’s answer to Barack Obama? I hope not. They are both ineligible to be President and two wrongs don’t make a right. One is President and the other wants to be President, but wanting to be and going to be are two different things and it doesn’t depend on what the definition of is…is. It depends on a proper understanding of what it means to be a Natural Born American Citizen according to Article 2 Section 1 of the United States Constitution…

Was Burns, Oregon the Right Place and the Right Time to Challenge the Federal Government’s Ownership of Public Lands and its Land-Use Policies in the West ?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, January 5, 2016

Normally peaceful Malheur National Wildlife Refuge near Burns Oregon became the scene of a heated standoff between ranchers and property rights advocates on the one hand and federal law enforcement officials and the Bureau of Land Management on the other hand. At the center of this conflict is a seventy-three year old Oregon Rancher named Dwight Hammond and his forty-six year old son Steven who were recently resentenced to serve five more years in a Federal Penitentiary on trumped up charges of arson…

ISIS isn’t the Crisis – The Problem is Islam

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, December 26, 2015

Forget about what you have been told. Islam is not a peaceful religion as its apologists would have you believe. In fact with few notable exceptions the Muslim world has never known prolonged periods of peace. Whenever Arabs are in control of the Uma there is usually war. There are supposed to be five pillars of Islam, but in reality there are only two, the sword and the Quran…

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, December 22, 2015

That old Graham Cracker from South Carolina named Lindsey just dropped out of the Republican Presidential Primary and it wasn’t a moment too soon. He was starting to get on my nerves…

Born Near the U.S.A. but Not Near Enough to be President of the U.S.A. – Ted Cruz… One Bad President Establishes Another Bad Precedent !

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, December 15, 2015

He says all the right things the junior Senator from Texas does, but he wasn’t born in the United States. He was born in Alberta, Canada. The Constitution says that you have to be born in the United States to be the President of the United States. It’s only common sense isn’t it?

Foxes in the Hen House… Wolves in the White House… and Liberals to the Nearest Nut House !

Posted by Scott Rohter on Wednesday, December 9, 2015

Allowing Muslims to come to America is like inviting the wolf into the hen house. If you think that Islam is just a religion you are wrong. It is far more than a religion. It is a complete way of life with a parallel system of law which is fundamentally at odds with our Constitution…

A Lap Dog Media for Democratic Presidents

Posted by Scott Rohter on Monday, November 23, 2015

Instead of selecting a member of the Syrian American Christian community to interview who might be opposed to accepting Syrian refugees based upon common sense and their own first-hand experience NPR picks a Moslem from Syria who is guaranteed to support the President’s plan to allow Syrian refugees into the country…

Can Government Eradicate Poverty? Bernie Thinks it can.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, November 22, 2015

Why does Bernie Sanders’ campaign appeal to hard core leftists? The world isn’t a fair place. That’s obvious, but can government eradicate poverty? Well Bernie Sanders thinks it can and apparently he thinks it should, and all of the people who support him in 2016 apparently think he will once he is elected President.

How Many Presidential Debates will Americans Watch before Deciding Who to Vote for in 2016?

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, November 12, 2015

To tune in or to tune out… that is the sixty four thousand dollar question. Actually it is the $500,000 dollar question. Five hundred thousand dollars per minute is about what it cost to advertise during the Republican Presidential Debates. How many of these prime time debates will Americans watch before we decide who to vote for in 2016?… and just how many of these gala media events will it take before we get so sick of politics that we start to tune out and turn off our television sets?

The Third Republican Debate – Washington Insiders just Don’t Get it. It’s Not JUST about the Policy Stupid… It’s about the People who Make it!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, October 29, 2015

The third Republican debate was supposed to be about policy…. economic policy to be specific. That was the theme selected by the Republican National Committee to try to make Jeb Bush look good and the questions were intended to showcase the professional politicians in the race seeking the Republican Presidential nomination at the expense of the non-politicians.. The plan was to knock out the front runners in the race…. Donald Trump and Ben Carson who enjoy an overwhelming lead in all the polls over the professional politicians in the race…

Hillary Skates through Benghazi Hearings while GOP Establishment goes after the House Freedom Caucus

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, October 20, 2015

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to the determined members of the House Republican Freedom Caucus who actually still know how to fight for principles. They are using fire to fight fire… the same type of fire that the Speaker of the House and the Majority Leader routinely use to commandeer the votes they need to pass President Obama’s legislative agenda and punish other members of Congress who don’t vote the way the way they want them to vote…

The 2016 Democratic Primary is a Joke. The Real Question is, “Can America Afford this kind of a Joke?”

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, October 15, 2015

I was trying to figure out just what those four other people were actually doing on the stage next to Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas. None of them has the slightest chance of actually winning the Democratic Party’s nomination for President. Lincoln Chafee, Martin O’Malley, Jim Webb and Bernie Sanders have no more chance of winning the Democratic Party’s nomination for President than Donald Duck so what are they really doing there?

Saddam’s Revenge – Planting the Seeds of Europe’s Surrender to Islam and The Unintended Consequence of America’s Invasion of Iraq

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, September 19, 2015

Are the vast waves of Muslims leaving the Middle East just refugees that we should feel sorry for or are they really an invading army of future jihadists that we should be wary of? Will Europe remain Europe or is it already starting to look a lot more like Eurabia? And what about America? Are we next?

An American Rubicon and a Few Good Men

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, September 13, 2015

Out of the depths of despair a nation was born. From under the yoke of a despot’s tyranny the sounds of freedom began to ring in the ears of a few good men. There weren’t many at first who heard this sound, but then it began to resonate throughout the land until a people of no little consequence became united in a common cause… and bound by a shared destiny. 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. What they decided to do next was something that none of them had ever done before…

From Détente with the Soviet Union to Open Confrontation with Russia over Ukraine and Syria – Washington’s New Foreign Policy under Barack Obama

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, August 30, 2015

American foreign policy toward Russia has gone from good, to bad, to worse. It has gone from the much welcomed détente under Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev to a very unwise and reckless foreign policy of open confrontation with Russia over Ukraine. Under Barack Obama we keep poking a stick at the Russian bear…

From the Tenets of Hippocrates to the Epitome of Hypocrisy

Posted by Scott Rohter on Sunday, August 30, 2015

listen to the news broadcasts these days with a increasing amount of skepticism and cynicism and rightly so. Regrettably there isn’t one major mainstream media news source in America that isn’t pushing their progressive agenda on the American public. From ABC to FOX News to NPR each and every major network is guilty of doing the exact same thing, and all of America’s major newspapers are doing it too. They are all guilty of violating their own professional standards of journalism and betraying the public trust in order to advance their globalist progressive agenda…

What was the First Republican Presidential Debate of 2016 All About? In Two Words… Donald Trump

Posted by Scott Rohter on Saturday, August 8, 2015

The first Republican Presidential debate was all about one man… Donald Trump. He is a self-made billionaire from New York who is riding very high in the polls. The reason he is riding so high in the polls is not because he is so amiable or because he is so smart. It is because he is telling Americans the truth and whether we like to hear it or not… we know it is true, but just how Mr. Trump tells us the truth could use a little work though…

America’s Thirty-Ninth President – Once a Dummy Always a Dummy !

Today Jimmy Carter endorsed President Obama’s nuclear weapons treay with ran. He said he has total confidence that the Iranians will keep their end of the deal up. If they give us their word they will keep it he said and he has faith in this agreement worked out by John Kerry. What can you say except once a dummy always a dummy?

President Obama Goes to Prison – From the White House to the Big House and Back Again – A Lost Opportunity

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, July 21, 2015

President Obama went to prison last week. Think of it. He was right where he belongs, behind bars. We had him right where we wanted him… Then they just let him get away. He should be locked up in the “Big House” not running around loose in the White House for eighteen more months…

Small Portland Oregon Bakery gets Fined $135,000 for Refusing to Bake a Cake! – Just One More Injustice in a Long Line of Progressive Injustices.

Aaron and Melissa Klein, the owners of a small mom and pop bakery in Portland, Oregon were fined $135,000 yesterday for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding ceremony. The judgment came approximately two years after a woman and her daughter walked into their Portland area store, Sweet Cakes by Melissa and wanted to order a cake with all of the appropriate decorations on it for what they called a wedding…

A President who shouldn’t be President Negotiates a Treaty which isn’t a Treaty with our Enemies that are still our Enemies – You Just Can’t Make this Stuff Up!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Tuesday, April 14, 2015

What the hell is actually going on in Washington D.C.? Don’t these members of the Senate even know what it says in the Constitution. In Article II Section 2 it states, “The President shall have power by and with the advice and consent of the Senate to make Treaties provided that two-thirds of the members present concur.”

The Death of Our Republic by a Thousand Executive Orders –
A Treaty by Any Other Name is Still a Treaty and it Still Requires Senate Approval!

Posted by Scott Rohter on Friday, April 3, 2015

Is the United States Senate under Barack Obama becoming like the Roman Senate under Julius Caesar? It looks like an official rubber stamp for the dictator’s executive orders… President Obama uses a pen and a phone and he signs executive orders as frequently as I write checks. He recently signed an executive order not to deport illegal aliens unless they have been convicted of another crime… Now President Obama is going to sign an executive agreement with a hostile government in Iran which endangers the security of the entire Middle East and threatens our safety right here at home in America while promising to start a nuclear arms race in the world that has no end in sight.…

Ted Cruz Decides to Run for President – Two Constitutional Wrongs don’t make his Presidential Aspirations Right for America.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Thursday, March 26, 2015

The junior Senator from Texas, Ted Cruz has just declared his intention to run for the Republican Presidential nomination in 2016. I think it is a bad idea and I want to be one of the first to say why. In a word his candidacy will be divisive. It is going to split the conservative vote over the question of his natural born citizenship and it will allow Jeb Bush to win the nomination. If I lived in Texas I would have voted for Ted Cruz in his successful campaign to become a United States Senator. I would vote for him a thousand times for Senator but I will not vote for him once in his bid to be the next President of the United States. Here’s why…

Netanyahu Wins Historic Fourth Term as Israel’s Prime Minister and Says No to Any Two-State Solution.

Posted by Scott Rohter on Friday, March 20, 2015

Benjamin Netanyahu won an historic fourth term as Israel’s prime minister. He won by a landslide. He now becomes Israel’s longest serving prime minister. More Israelis actually voted for Benjamin Netanyahu this time than voted for him the last time he ran. Unfortunately you can’t say the same thing for Barack Obama, but apparently that little fact was lost on our arrogant President. Bibi will be around a long time after Barry is gone and thank God for that…
