Gun Control is Bogus - People Bent on Destruction Will ALWAYS Find an Illegal Source

In fact, many of us believe that we should have a right to own a gun as a defensive weapon in our homes WITHOUT  the gun being registered. These weapons are also used in killings: knives, axes, hammers, ball bats, swords, ropes, wire, axe handles, etc, NONE of which require registration. And, no, the NRA is not in decline just because of the RAPID increase of minorities in this country.

Actually, the rapid rise of minorities, should cause gun sales to rise, especially as noted in Chicago where facts indicate that most murders are black people killing each other. The same is most likely true in other major cities like Philadelphia, Detroit, etc.

The taxpayer funded buy back program was a most stupid program. All elected officials who supported this program, should be voted out of office. Did they REALLY think criminals would turn in their guns??

It's people like these in leadership positions that have put this country in the current and pending biggest messes since the Civil War.

If the Clinton Cabal is elected, all of us still in majority, should be prepared to defend ourselves and locked doors won't be enough.

Trump and the RNC - My Goodness, Where To Start

Never in my life have I ever seen a political performance that Donald Trump, his staff, his family and all his enthusiastic supporters, put on such an entrancing show tonight. he made the longest acceptance speech, and me, a detail man also, noted that he never took a drink of water yet had the same strong voice he had when he first started speaking.

Absolutely amazing.

Yet I know his critics are already saying, "yeah great speech but where were the details". To even ask that question is a question of journalist stupidity that so many graduating journalists have been taught in colleges today.

All thru his campaign and during the convention, so many people described Trump as a detail man. He and his advisers are hard at work on the details every waking hour of the day. The details could not be described at ANY of his speeches as details go, they only co,me with all the facts assembled plus speech time to detail each one.

His critic will say, "where is all the money going to come from"? You did NOT hear him say that he would LOWER the National debt although he did mention how extremely fast it has grown and indicated a concern for this rapid growth..

What  his critics cannot say is that he brought the Republicans closer together during this Convention then they have been ever since he entered the fray many moons ago.

"Forgive his trespasses" as they are many. But his possible assets to this country far out weigh his opponent. The now OUTSIDER folks like Ray LaHood, Governor Kasich and organizations like the Christian Coalition, had best come to his support now and not wait till November. Why, if not, these NOW outsiders may be many years on the outside looking in. They should not be stupid enough to not realize that the choice they make may not be the Ted Cruz type, or dear God, not Hillary and Bill.

And yes, I've always accepted gays and blacks as they are people too with the same rights as straights. Unfortunately,  too many times they listen to the wrong "leaders". It is all right to peacefully disagree as that is the "American way". When I was in business I'm sure I hired gays and I certainly hire black and brown skinned people who mostly performed admirably. But lifestyles and color had no bearing on whether I hired or fired them.

Anyway, no matter how the liberal left-leaning media describe this Convention, it has been a tremendous success. And what a fantastic Trump family. And the Pence's are a near perfect fit.

Going to bed. Thanks for reading me and comment all you want but be sure to sign your name as I sel dom print anonymous comments.


Trump Haters Believe Corrupt Clinton Would Make a Better President?

RNC - Violence and Choas? Sure Was When Ted Cruz Literally Cut His own Throat Tonight

Virtual reality blood flowed as Cruz made his opening statements to start his 2020 Presidential campaign tonight in Cleveland at the expense of Donald Trump. Cruz, always a weenie but a favorite of the far right Republicans in Peoria County, totally cut his slim chance to be elected President of the U.S.A. in 2020.

Maybe in Cuba but not here. As a Christian myself, I can only say, thank God. Trump showed his true character by letting Cruz speak even thorough he knew Cruz was not going to endorse him.

I'll repeat myself. You don't have to like any Republican Presidential Candidate to support him or her. But to try to hand the lying, corrupt Hillary Cabal the right to appoint Supreme Court and Federal Judges all with a socialist bent will mark the end of the "shining city on the hill"

Or did I just commit a plagiarism??? Or maybe another one: Dear God, let Hillary further ruin this great country.

Overall, mark up another successful night for the GOP. And credit both CNN and FOX for not as yet, giving much press to the would be violent protesters. Like "Black Lives Matter" outside lining the streets..

Darin Lahood - I'm Proud of You

You had the guts to step forward and put your party before personalities. You know that IF the Republicans lose the Presidency,  or even the House and the Senate, that the Republican Party will be on the outside looking in for a long long time.

Maybe forever as those minorities now reproduce 2-3 times as people like you and I.and 80% will vote for a socialistic type of government that WILL DESTROY THIS COUNTRY EVENTUALLY.

Every Republican who stays at home in November will be casting a vote for the FAR worst of two Presidential Candidates. The left-leaning liberal medias will jump on every Trump campaign error while paying lip service to the horrendous mistakes of much of the Democrat leadership.

The last 24 hours have been all about Mrs.Trump's speech while Hillary and Black Lives Matter get a free pass. Hillary should be indicted by now and BLM leaders should be arrested for preaching anarchy resulting in the death of at least a dozen innocent police people.

Did anyone go back and check all the speeches ever made by all Presidential Candidates wives? Don't expect anyone in the liberal media to do that and they most likely would not report it if Mrs Obama committed plagiarism. Perhaps, since the words are so sincere and said by so many people who are NOT on a public stage, it is very likely some some other potential first lady said the very words that Mrs. Obama spoke?

Darin, you have a promising career. Try to talk sense into people like your Dad who, like ALL people has most likely said hundreds or uncomplimentary things behind peoples's back. Not being a political correct person, I try to put  my "truths" in blog form. Not all all of them but but I do print many such as telling people what most people already know that Stock Broker Jim Stowell is an arrogant man who got his start from his Dad's name and not his talents. I know. He at one time worked for me and was at one time, my stock broker.

Best wisher Darin.  

Want to Get Away FOX TV and CNN For Awhile?

Then go to Merle Widmer Peoria Watch, find an of my blogs and type in "Dave Ransburg" in the upper left hand corner where it says "Search" and hit go.

Have fun.

The Washington Post - What A Prejudiced Newpaper

Yes, I almost forgot. Hope their headline tomorrow is their prediction, "Trump will Not be the Republican Candidate".This paper, endorsed by the Peoria Journal Star, is the one of the most left-leaning newspapers in this country. Subscribe to it as the PJS recommends? I don't even subscribe to the "fair and balanced" PJS.

RNC: 10:10 PM Here and 11:10 in Cleveland and I'm Off To Bed

Great start to a Convention. All speakers, including Trump's fantastic wife, were great until Lt. General Flynn came on and repeated himself over and over for what seemed like hours. He was still rambling on when I turned off the TV. Trump's planners should have had a pre-arranged signal for him to shut up and let the Presidential Candidate close out the first night before everybody started to fall asleep or left the Convention Hall.

The Donald would have been wise to say a few words with less "thank you's" and to tell everyone that speeches were over for tonight and see you all tomorrow.

Hope I can now get to sleep myself after listening to mostly political TV most of the day. I did get back in the market today buying Bac and Smith and Wesson. I still think the market is oversold and I predict some kind of a crash either late this year or early in 2017.

Megan Kelly Was Superb Again Tonight.

Amidst an interview with a militant form Black Panther "leader", she failed to back down an inch from his hate America ranting. Hope you are watching Fox TV tonight and occasionally tuning in to CNN.

Again, I "wish I was in Cleveland (Peoria) tonight" if some of you remember the words of that once popular song.

RNC Chaos? Hardly

Oh how the media loves to sensationalize. Both Fox and CNN couldn't get over trying to say, "Chaos reigns at the RNC today". I never took a class in Journalism, thank God, but I spent the afternoon watching both channels and if their was chaos, I didn't see it or hear it. Perhaps, these analysts and headline writers need a description of chaos.

Here goes: CHAOS - pandemonium, utter confusion, bedlam, disarray, mayhem, topsy-turvy, snafus, disorder, havoc and on and on. For those of you who didn't watch, I can tell you none of the above happened on he floor of the RNC Convention today. Yes, their was strong vocal support for the side that wanted to change the rules (perhaps some rules should be changed) and strong vocal support for the Trump/Pence supporters, but not a chair was overturned,s a shirt torn or fist thrown of any nasty words spoken.

Agreed, it wasn't the boring, rubber-stamped procedures of the Republican Establishment but I have warned many times on this site that "times r changn". And Fox News did the best job of "reporting the events as they happened". I'll give some credit to CNN also.

I'm looking forward to tomorrows events and wishing I was there. Also, tomorrow I will take on the Washington Post (Democrat) And after I read what the JS and AP writes, probably them also.

We can't let the media determine the fate of this great nation.

Bush Dynasty Ends With A Pout By Jebbie

Too bad. George H.W. Bush was by far the wisest politician and a President wise enough not to remove the criminal running Iraq. He realized that in doing so, he would upset the dictatorial power structure and the always precious stability of a Middle East that throughout modern history was in some kind of violent chaos. Jeb, who got elected as Governor of Florida largely on the coat tails of previous Bushes and Walkers.

So Jeb pouts and doesn't go to Cleveland thereby further weakening of the already weakened the Republican Party.

Since Jeb is from Florida, I will tell a tale about a Florida Dynasty that crumbled shortly after the death of their founder. The George Stuart office supply and equipment company, based in Orlando, was by far the largest of it's kind in the State. Direct descendants took over the running of the company but they didn't see the revolution taking place in the industry. I did and not only survived but in the end prospered. The Stuarts did not. My company and the Stuart company belonged to the same marketing organization. I served on the Board of Directors as did a Stuart so I had some insight as to who was going to survive the revolution.

I see the revolution going on and agree with much of it. But beyond my "seeing' I sincerely hope that the changes do not turn to a violence that could eventually lead to another type of Civil War. I do not believe in thee chant,"Why can't we all get along". Sorry, but that will NEVER come to pass Never has since the emerging of life on earth. Please read your history, little of which is being CORRECTLY taught in our schools today.

Jeb Bush and his supporters did not recognize that the U.S.A. was not the same country of their fathers and was and is going through a very different stage of evolution for want of a better word. Donald Trump realized this rapid evolution and struck out in a rather drastic direction. While The Donald could have used some better terminology, he caught the attention of those who agreed with him that they too were not happy with the general direction this country was and is heading. At times, I even wavered.

Not now. As always an Independent thinker, I see the future and do not like what I see. I will support Trump at least through 2020 as he will lead if the Bushes, Romneys, McCains, and all true Republicans and Indeependents realize if they don't, this country will be in much deeper do-do than it is in now.

Bernstein Says "Listen Up" on Trump's Wall

So if  Bernstein says that Mexican cement makers will benefit more than U. S. cement makers, I suggest two things: More jobs for Mexicans will help stop them from entering the U.S. illegally and take every discretionary dollar (you are already losing your ass on lotteries, slots and video games) and invest in these Mexican cement making company's through a discount broker like Muriel Siebert who charges less than $10 a trade and only 2% if you buy on thee margin.

Wait till Trump gets elected which he won't if more stupid so-called Republicans stay at home. Trump followers; take note of the notables not attending the Republican Convention like losers Kasich, Romney and McCain.

U.S.A. Has a Soft Belly

For a person to avoid a chiropractic treatment for their backs, they must strengthen their backs. (Also avoiding drinking too much beer and eating all that fast food and pigging out at buffets) People have to avoid watching  advertising that promotes "soft bellies". I do. I switch channels until I find one that isn't promoting things bad for your health. I'll admit it is hard to escape adverting that does great harm to your health and pocketbook. They have to do exercises no matter how they hate exercising that cause weak stomach muscles to become as strong as back muscles.

Any reputable chiropractor will give you a simple set of exercises that will strengthen your back that you can do in bed or on the floor. Takes about 5 minutes, 3-4 times a week. I know as a fact that one of the best chiropractors in Peoria, Bob Benningfield showed me these exercises 20 years ago and I have never been back to any chiropractor since. He cost himself a lot of money but Bob is a Christian guy who puts a persons health before the almighty dollar.

I have Scoliosis but it hasn't bothered me in 20 years.

For this country to strengthen  it's back we need more leadership that puts the countries needs before circuses. Black Lives Matter is not teaching leadership but is a circus and a phony one at that. They and their ilk are largely responsible for black men shooting the very people that try to keep them safe. The sensation seeking media is equally guilty.

Where is Black Lives Manner and their ilk in black murdering blacks especially in Chicago? If they are making an effort to stop thes killings, they are NOT successful.

VERY little background of the thugs has ever appeared in print. Yes, they were all thugs with lengthy police records. Please don't say, "yes, but that is no reason to kill them". How do you know their was no reason? Were you there? No, I wasn't either. But when the FACTS have been presented to any jury charges against any officer involved have been dropped. There may be one or two exceptions but as the saying goes, "their usually is one bad apple in a barrel of apples" or every walk of life, including the clergy.

Are their bad people in EVERY WALK OF LIFE? Stupid of me to even ask that question. People who support organi

Terry Burnside - Peoria's Black American Hero

If you missed the article, "Vigil focuses on unity" by Anna Spoerre in the Monday, July 11, front page edition of the Peoria Journal Star, you need to find it and read it. Mr. Burnside, one of Peoria's good leaders, tells it like it is to both the white and black communities. Mr. Burnside was disappointed in the turnout, being quoted as saying, "Don't retaliate with when someone shatters your dreams with the sounds of gunfire. I am really disappointed in the black community, referring to the less than 100 people who showed up for the vigil, Black lives need to matter to blacks.If you are really concerned about black lives, where are you?"

The Rev. Marvin Hightower, first vice-president of the Peoria Chapter of the NAACP, said black lives can't matter until all lives matter. (I have said the same in my blogs, criticizing the way the "Black Lives Matter" organization has been mis-representing the very people they are supposed to be representing).

Mr. Burnside's son, a promising professional athlete, was shot in the leg causing injuries so severe, he may never play sports at any level. With the lack of leaders like Mr. Terry Burnside and the Rev. Marvin Hightower in both the black and white communities, violence on one another will never end.
Banning firearms will NEVER stop violence by those intent on being violent. Those brought up to hate and physically harm will find weapons somewhere from whatever source. The solution is not simple, but kids must be persuaded that they must attend and pay attention in the classrooms. And the educational colleges must find ways to teach their potential graduates, the Burnside and Hightower ways.

Organizations like Black Lives Matter is exactly the wrong way to teach all people to try their best to get along. Discipline and respect must be returned to schools, homes and public places. Blocking roads and terrorizing communities must be met with wise use of force by all security forces. Black youth must be taught to understand that the people in this country have come a long way since the 1940's. And the major way to further this progress is by teaching and practicing facts, not falsehoods inciting further violence.


Associated Press is a Shitbag Overflowing With Left Leaning Liberal Reporters and Top Management

Constantly deriding Trump and going easy on the corrupt Clinton's. Today Peoria Journal Star Democrat  criticized Trump for having his name printed larger than Pence. No kidding? Is Pence the Presidential candidate or Trump. How much more stupid can the AP and other left-wing liberals get?

Then they and the PEORIA JSD printed a criticism of the Trump/Pence logo saying that liberals thought the logo had a "sexual look". To liberal reporters, it probably does. The AP and other liberal women probably have over sized vaginas and the men have skinny dicks.(penis envy??)
Otherwise, how could they print such stupid stuff?

So sad that the media can't just print the fact backed news and do more factual investigating reporting. What a better country this would be.

Turkish Coup By the Military Has Apparently Failed- Too Bad

From all I read and see, Turkish leadership was in the prolonged process of turning Turkey from a Democracy into an Islamic State. Obama, a Muslim, was seemingly in support of this process.

While I seldom believe violence is the answer to solving problems, sometimes it is necessary such as the entrance of the U.S.A. into World War 2.

I could be wrong as I have never visited Turkey and felt the mood of good leaders.

Terribly Biased Media

Liberal Democrat leaning media say, "Trump introduced running mate today. Keeps emphasis on himself" What a mis-leading statement. Of course,he emphasized his political stance. He will be President, not Pence. If media like the JS, claim to be 'fair and 'balanced', they would have said he spent considerable time detailing Pence's character and achievements and then let Pence take the speaker for at least 15 minutes.

Speaking of "fair and balanced", few liberal media try to print all the truth but leave out or ad falsehoods. Some local media would add and "upstairs" to a ranch house of fail to put in the word "alleged" when someone of some importance is arrested but never convicted.

Or print their mug shot. Mug shots are automatic for even a misdemeanor, especially in Florida. Even though the charge is later forgotten or dismissed. To the JS Editorial Board credit, they believe that a mug shot should not be made public upon an arrest and before a conviction of the charge.

Trump would like to make "libeling" of individuals by the media a prosecution offense. I agree. No one has won a libel case against the media in Illinois in 60 years.

Dear God, Please Don't Let Hillary Make the Next Appointment to the Supreme Court

Ray LaHood, don't you understand this. This election is not all about Donald Trump and some of his unwise statements but it is about the DIRECTION IN WHICH THIS COUNTRY IS HEADING.

Trump and Pence - I Can See More Clearly Now

I watched the entire Republican V-P presentation this morning. As a Christian, I forgive Pence for his stance on issues that are contrary to my factual thinking. It is only human to disagree. It is only human to err. It must be only human to forgive acts and statements that are forgivable.

Pence is an excellent, well thought out, choice to be the running mate of the next President of this great country, the United States of America. I very much would like to be in Cleveland but my daughters and my own common sense said, old man, don't go. While I was in Tampa four years ago, unfortunately, I do not have the physical strength I had then. But I had a ball supporting Romney in Tampa.

While people like Ray LaHood and many other Republicans are advising Republican voters to stay at home in November because of statements Trump has made, these stay at-homers are only going to give the presidency to the corrupt Hillary and a failed group of so-called Democrat leaders. Look at the mess Demorat controlled Illinois is in.

Please, readers, don't be naive. Trump was and is saying in public what most people like Ray LaHood say in some semblance of privacy. Woman and men both; I believe women moreso, will be friendly and say nice things when face to face, but when backs are turned, the criticisms flow.

Trump has guts but he is way to smart to be recklessly dangerous. He is a proven leaders who made mistakes but to be successful, like he is, he made less mistakes than others. Please don't say sure because he had a lot of money to start. The road to success in business is littered with those who also started out with much money but blew it. He realizes that our leadership of people and country must be greatly improved; that the Republican patry is doomed to become a third party if the Establishment, in which Ray LaHood played a major role, does not come to grips that this is not the country of our fathers and grandfathers.

Mike Pense - Maybe I Was to Quick to Comment

I didn't know he wants to abolish Planned Parenthood. I do not agree. Perhaps he is to far right and is too slow to acknowledged that things have changed in this country that cannot be reversed.

I may have been to quick to agree with Trump IF he is to be Trump's running ,mate.

Right To Work States - 26 of Them and No Near Bankrupt Illinois

Do you think Cat is moving people and building plants in states that have yet to join the Right-to-Work movement? Think again. And I'm taking even money bets that Cat will never build their new headquarters in Illinois unless the Federal Government, the State Government,and the City and County give taxpayer incentives so large that Cat can't refuse.

Or Illinois, to extract themselves from the morass the Democrats and many Republicans have intentionally pushed themselves near the bottom, soon votes to become the 27th state. Even now, it is probably too late as Illinois has a host of negatives for a mass movement of new businesses to move here.

Taxpayers, like the Cubs can't keep saying "wait till next year". And, speaking of the Cubs, die-hard fans might as well start saying to themselves, "wait till next year". I'm giving odds that their will be no World Series Champion in Chicago again this year. The facts are there if the die-hards care to see them.

But, at least, they have been an interesting team to read about and watch over the past 12 months.

Marathon Pundit - A Well-Read Blog By John Ruberry-

John says a vote for Trump and Pence makes sense. I more than agree.

Trump is So Right On Our Inability To Protect Ourselves

$40 billion has already been spent on GMD missile defense, yet it is unable to protect United States of America citizens from a missile attack by North Korea. This recently published by a group called the Union of Concerned Scientists. They call on Obama to halt this ill-planned project.

Trump is so-right. Ray LaHood says he is not going to vote for Trump and encourage his "good old boys and girls club" not to come out and vote. Or vote for Hillary, Trump is the only candidate that can save this country and stop the Clinton Cabal from running  this country into the ground for the next 8 years. Ray LaHood is  perhaps hoping that if Hillary is elected, he may receive an Ambassadorship to France or if so, I hope to Madagascar. And one more pension to add to his extensive repertoire.

Ray once asked me if I thought he was paid to much. I answered "no" and came to regret it as I became more politically minded. I didn't realize at the time all the massive perks received by members of our most wildly and ineffective spending Congressional bodies in the history of our nation.

Stand on the prow of the Titanic and perhaps have some run-down portion of Illinois highways named also after LaHood. Or a run down street in Peoria, not hard to find these days.

Most of you will not remember but Ray tried to force automakers to agree to build autos that would average 56.2 mpg by 2025.. Asked where the 56.2 mpg came from, LaHood  said, "he had no idea".(JS, June 39, 2011)

Most forgot that Ray first supported a new $800,000,000.00 new highway to Chicago across farmlands Then he changed his mind and he and Dave Leitch supported widening Rt.29. (JS, 6/02) When engineers determined that the cost would be over $600,000,000.00, LaHood backed off and a highway that could never be justified, was never built. But not after upwards of $12 million was paid to consultants and engineers to "study" the never was and never could be justified highway.

When Obama named LaHood Secretary of Transportation, he selected a man that knew little about transportation. He took four years to prove it.

Incidentally, on 10/15/11 as reported in the JS, LaHood criticized the Republican party by stating that some people "don't want Obama to be successful".

Worst Criminals Did Some Good Things

Ask their mothers. Every person ever born did and does some good in their lifetime, no matter how short or how long that life is. If I were to say Hitler did some good which I will, if I were "somebody" I would be quickly become a headline in all the wannabees "National Inquirer's", which so much of the media attempts to mimic, The headline would be, "Widmer says Hitler was a good man" which would be a total lie. What good did Hitler do good? He had the Germans' build the best highways in Europe.

Of course he had a ulterior motive; to build roadbeds constructed to move his machines of war. But I understand that even today, Germany has some of the best wearing roadbeds in the world.

Now Trump says Saddam did some good in eliminating terrorists even though his regime also gratly harmed many innocents. Isn't that happening today in Iraq only worse? So the headlines make it look like Trump would have liked to have been best buddies with Saddam. Without elaborating, do people really believe Iraq is better off today than it was before the U.S>A. got involved? Unless I can't believe any media, Iraq appears to be a total mess. What goes on in Libya is probably worse than it was 10 years ago.

The world is a mess and will remain that way until people understand that the world needs STRONG leaders and not all of these "leaders" will be angels sent from heaven.

So sad. At times, I regret living this long to see what i long ago predicted if you read my 30 some "Letters to the Editors" of the JS and my 2700 blogs.

Trump, unlike so many other "so-called" leaders, says what he thinks. And the media chooses what they want to print, being sure it does not flatter Trump. But he CANNOT do everything he says without the will of the people who are horribly divided.

Megyn Kelly, You Were Super Superb Tonight

If you missed this lady reporting on Fox News tonight, you missed one of the best performances ever as she and her guests tore FBI Director a new AH for his politically rigged decision on not recommending charges to be brought against the most lying politician presidential candidate since Barack Obama.

She is more than back in my good graces and Fox News is the best TV new station in the world. FBI Director Comey avoided saying whether the corrupt Clinton Foundation is still under investigation. Comey may try to save face by recommending this case to the Clinton favoring AG, Loretta Lynch.

Trump put on one his best performances in North Carolina tonight. He may be all the things people dislike about him but he is always on or near solutions to the problems this country faces.

And these problems are so immense that half the things, typical of all politicians, will not be accomplished in 8 years, let alone 4 years.

If the Republican Establishment and some of the "Titanic" Republican voters don't get behind Mr. Trump, the Republicans are dead, as I said before, perhaps forever.

Terrific going, Megyn, I love you, O'Reilly and Hannity, etc., and Fox TV!!!!! Maybe I'll get to meet some of you in Cleveland as I did in meeting and having my picture taken with another of my idols, Larry Kudlow, four years ago in Tampa.

Hillary Clinton - Court of Public Opinion?

Hillary is a bold-faced liar. GUILTY.
