Summary of CT GOP US Senate Race 2022

Written by Juliana Simone

August 17, 2022

The conclusion of this race is that former President Donald J. Trump’s endorsement of Leora Levy a short time before Primary Day is what gave her the life she needed to win this three candidate battle. Interesting to note some insiders have divulged Trump became involved after hearing former supporter turned adversary, former New Jersey Governor Christie, endorsed convention winner Klarides at a Connecticut event earlier.

Trump continues to rule the Republican Party and in this instance, it put Levy over the State GOP party favorite and the grassroots/base favorite. Peter Lumaj, and his campaign staff are proud of their hard work, appearances with the RTC’s, statewide media and pro-America message. Look for Lumaj on the Fox News Network as a contributor where he has appeared for six years among other news outlets.

Update: CT U.S. Senate Primary Peter Lumaj is the Best Candidate

Written by Juliana Simone

August 9, 2022

{The featured image here shows Peter Lumaj as the 2014 State Party Secretary of the State Nominee receiving almost 500, 000 votes statewide, including inner city and cross over votes.}

In late 2021, Peter Lumaj cleared the field of all potential candidates speaking with any fellow Republicans he thought might also be considering a run against Senator Richard Blumenthal in 2022. Two of the people he asked were Themis Klarides, the former State House Minority Leader for two terms of her eleven terms, and CT Republican National Committee member Leora Levy, who replaced long-serving and well-respected Pat Longo. Both women declined, telling Lumaj that Blumenthal could not be beaten and wishing him luck.

Klarides had an exploratory campaign to run for Governor, and said that was the office she was seeking. The other said she was thinking of running against Connecticut’s second Senator Chris Murphy in two years. Veteran and small business owner, Matthew Corey, an exceptional candidate who took on both Congressman John Larson and Senator Murphy in previous years, said he tried very hard for some time and was not interested in a run in 2022. Others also passed, happy to hear Lumaj was going to run against Blumenthal. He filed his papers with the FEC in late November of 2021.

Waiting two months to publicly announce his candidacy for U.S. Senate to challenge Richard Blumenthal, Peter Lumaj appeared on the Capitol steps in mid-January to hold his press conference.

Lumaj brought attention to state and national news by pointing out that Blumenthal had just attended the CT Communist Party Awards Dinner in New Haven and gave the group high praise. Not a view popular with voters, this gave a new vulnerability to Blumenthal. He had not had a chip in his thin veneer since press exposed in his first run for the U.S. Senate against retired Colonel and U.S. Congressman Rob Simmons that Blumenthal had lied about serving overseas in Vietnam.

Klarides hearing from Republican Town Committees and their state convention delegates that they were sticking with Bob Stefanowski to challenge democrat Governor Ned Lamont a second time, saw her hopes to be Governor dashed. She had to close her exploratory committee and call it a day.

Former State Senate Minority Leader, John McKinney, saved Klarides’ political career and the jobs of her expensive campaign staffers, by giving her a dog whistle on a local Sunday morning political news show suggesting she switch from the Governors’ race to the U.S. Senate race. McKinney said Lumaj was a nice guy, and a fellow Fairfield RTC member like himself, but Themis had the moderate values Connecticut residents’ shared unlike the announced conservative Lumaj. Klarides jumped the sinking ship for Head of State and announced days before the end of January she was switching to the U.S. Senate race.

Leora Levy, sniffing opportunity with the incoming red wave, threw her hat into the ring days later.  Her opening argument to CT Republicans as the last entry in the race was that she was the only one of the three candidates who knew anyone in Washington.

Repackaging herself weeks later she then claimed and continues to claim to be the outsider in this race. She loses this statement right out of the box for three reasons:

One, she is a member of the Republican National Committee. Right there, this makes Levy an insider. Outsiders are not RNC members, or on a smaller level, not State Central Committee members for the state party. (Two people elected to represent each senate district within their state.) She has been a RNC member since 2017, so is not someone new who thinks she might have made a mistake joining this organization. Additionally, she sat on the RNC finance committee which brought her further into the circle, and more connected to D.C. insiders.

Two, Levy was a Jeb Bush supporter in 2016 and throughout his career. Supporting Jeb Bush for President 2016 out of that long bench of candidates that year, she, like any of his supporters, didn’t like the way Trump spoke to Bush on stage and disliked the “low energy” moniker Trump attached to Jeb. The Bush family as a whole including the two former Presidents, (41 and 43) and their wives, were very public with their negative comments about Trump, and were firmly implanted in the “Never Trumper” clan. Their bitterness and scorn was so deep, even before Election Day they all vowed to vote for Democrat challenger but fellow swamper, Hillary Clinton.

Three, Levy has served as a rainmaker for national GOP candidates through her RNC post, giving her insider status and VIP access in D.C. Looking up her political contributions, Levy’s thousand dollar donation to former liberal Democrat Connecticut Senator Chris Dodd, public records show, she wrote the personal check alone.

It was interesting to see many of her donations were to real insiders in the Republican party such as Senate Majority or Minority Leader Mitch McConnell and former House Minority Leader Paul Ryan.

Levy and her advisors continue to parallel her campaign with U.S. Senate candidate and refugee Peter Lumaj. Borrowing his whole story, she was advertised as being from a communist country, and her public narrative was that her parents had to ‘escape’, too. She became ProLife, a firm supporter of the Second Amendment, was the biggest advocate for President Trump, touted as the only true conservative, and without any factual basis, was said to be the only one who could beat Blumenthal.

In the only debate between the three candidates, Levy’s chryon generated screen description had a bullet point that highlighted she had escaped Communist Cuba.

At three years old, she was taken into her parents arms and landed in America with a granted visa.

Different from actually climbing mountains, crawling under barbwire and evading search lights hoping not to be shot like Lumaj, who truly escaped a brutal Communist country.

Klarides got into the mix excelling her own family background story during various public appearances, beginning with the story that her grandparents left Greece for opportunity in America, but then changed the story that her grandparents had escaped communist Greece and then finally stating that they fled the Greek genocide. This Connecticut U.S. Senate race became a war of the refugees.

The winner in this contest (though he’d much rather not be) is Peter Lumaj. His father was tortured to death in a concentration camp in Albania for allowing his sons to escape to freedom.

And for Levy? She said in her first address to town committees and many speeches to follow, that at the age of 3, she had to leave a shiny red new tricycle behind when her parents left Cuba. This is when Levy learned communism was bad.

Themis, also chiming in with her own version of a miserable childhood story, said she wanted to work as a lifeguard in the summer but had to scoop ice cream in her family grocery store instead. Her current TV ads show a black and white photo of a store front that were the family’s beginnings. They went on to own the whole shopping plaza which allowed them to move into the real estate business. Both Klarides and Levy grew up in privileged homes. Levy went to Ivy League college to become a highly paid broker, and Klarides went to Law School before seeking out the bonus of being an elected official.

This is back story information but it’s relevant for people outside of CT just learning of our U.S. Senate race in CT due to the Trump endorsement for Levy last Friday. This information is also relevant to our own voters who don’t know these details.  

Levy has shown herself on the campaign trail as unprofessional innumerable times.

Having direct interaction with her for the first time after she failed to show up on time for the Danbury RTC monthly meeting, she blamed her staff when speaking to the Chair, and said she would find out who made this mistake. Disinterested, when she asked him if she could speak to anyone still here, he said sure, whoever’s left. This was me, my partner and the Mayor of Danbury. Wearing my Lumaj jacket she waved me off and said oh, you’re with Peter, can I talk to both of you? So self involved, she failed to notice the huge insignia on the Mayors windbreaker, that said “Mayor of Danbury.” She rattled on for ten minutes about her amazing achievements, finishing saying “and this is why I am the only candidate that can beat Blumenthal.”

Despite the fact I have a long resume in terms of titles, as staff, I politely said at this point, we feel the same way about Peter. At this, she quickly stepped closer to me, and pointed her finger in my face, and yelled at me. “Yah? Well, He’s going to lose! HE’S GOING TO LOSE!” She then asked for all of our names, as if she was writing them down to report us to someone. Hearing Dean Esposito say he was the Mayor, her cross nature changed, and she offered him her business card so that they could speak privately.

As a Chairman of an RTC since 2010, public access cable show host for fourteen years that has interviewed Former U.S Congressmen Chris Shays and Rob Simmons, as well as Peter Schiff, sitting state legislators, federal and local candidates, I have never seen such an unprofessional response.

Another Chairman who wrestled with voting for her or Lumaj, that chose Peter pr-convention and still supports his candidacy, described her as “easily triggered.” Perfect analysis after his own moment in July when he asked a simple question to her at a public event of a group he was a member of and officer at the time.

Levy’s only prior run for office she lost, when in 2021 she hoped to be the Republican State Senate nominee in a special election which included her own hometown of Greenwich. Her Senate District delegation voted twenty to nine for her opponent, Ryan Fazio. Fazio went on to beat the democrat challenger and holds the seat in the Connecticut State Senate today for the Republican Party. Good choice. Likability is a key factor in electability.

Read here an opinion recently published from Hearst Media journalist on Leora Levy:

https://www.ctinsider.com/columnist/article/Dan-Haar-Leora-Levy-a-political-insider-in-17315734.php

The local media writes so many negative portraits of Lumaj. Surfing the web, it is astounding how they describe this hard working, self made, and deeply admired man. If he was not a Republican, worse, a conservative, they would laud his candidacy and promote him twenty four seven. One newspaper article said he lost as a “candidate” for the Secretary of the State office in twenty fourteen, leaving out he was the State Party endorsed candidate. Winning much of the election night until the big cities came in, Lumaj outperformed the top of the ticket in Waterbury, proving his inner city voter appeal, and receiving almost a half million votes in this statewide race.

But, some people either fear or envy great people like Lumaj, so they do their best to keep them down. Even today, updating this post, a local radio host blocked Lumaj from his agreed upon call in time for a Levy supporter instead, who used the time the program knew Lumaj voters were tuning in to make derogatory comments about Levy’s opponents.

Levy, got a much needed boost by former President Trump’s phone-in endorsement at a RTC a few days ago. This brought some much needed new life to a withering campaign. Trump must not have been aware of the searing Letter to the Editor Levy wrote in the Greenwich Times in 2016 which described him as vulgar among other negative notations. Or he forgot. Or no longer cared listening to the people who advised him to endorse her. Fellow Chairmen and Republicans wonder how much that helps a candidate here in Connecticut, however. Especially one that was shouting at fellow candidate Lumaj during the last two minutes of his speech at an event demanding he drop out of the race a week earlier.

Regardless of all that is mentioned here, Peter Lumaj has a true grassroots campaign and the love of his supporters is something his opponents or detractors cannot take away. August 9th will be an interesting day. Does Connecticut stay the same and vote, as Lumaj has said in numerous speeches, for the party favorite and let Hartford or Washington decide who our state’s candidate should be? Or is the ground swell growing enough here in what was the Constitution State to vote in the man who is, and has always been, the true Constitutionalist? They broke the mold when Peter Lumaj was created. Americans who love liberty and freedom should wish him the best today. Connecticut Primary Voters – be honored to have a candidate like this on your ballot. Cast your vote for Peter Lumaj.

CA Recalls: Why Davis and Not Newsom

September 22, 2021

Written by Juliana Simone

The reason why Gray Davis lost his seat as Governor in 2003 when voters said yes to his recall, and why Gavin Newsom kept his seat as Governor in 2021 comes down to three things. They’re really quite basic.

First and foremost is the mere factor of time. Almost two decades have passed and in CA, where the liberal legislative majority rules the once Golden State, spoon fed voters young and old have by majority bought into their rhetoric in terms of what is good and what is bad for our country and California. Little to none is true, but nevertheless, the daily messaging has taken hold. The people who live there are ripe for this pablum, having lived there myself for over a decade, and their majority vote should not be surprising to Americans. Unlike many commentators’ thoughts I read after the results, as much as I understood their negative remarks against Californians, such as, “you’ll get what you ask for,” I don’t agree as I feel for the many people there who don’t want these people in office and want to see their state turn around for the better. Geographical red/blue maps post elections show much of CA is conservative or Republican but they can’t win over the massive numbers of the liberal southern and northern hubs.

Secondly, syndicated conservative radio host, Larry Elder, the favorable opponent to Newsom in the September 14th recall vote, is an admirable and accomplished Black man, but not in the right Party as a Republican. Ask the brilliant Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, or his predecessor Thurgood Marshall; Accomplished former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice; Gifted Neurosurgeon Ben Carson; U.S Senator Tim Scott (R-SC). The list is long, actually. All of these amazing people would be lauded 24/7 by the mainstream media and the left, if they only had a D by their name and ran as democrats.

Third and last, Newsom is part of U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s cartel, and she made clear in a public appearance that she supported her nephew-through-marriage the evening before the recall vote. This is no small thing in California as politics go. With no lauds available for Newsom on September 13th, the last day for pro get out the vote speeches for the unpopular Governor, as he has created such a large exodus from the state they lost a Congressional seat in re a reduction of population, all the liberals from President Biden to Vice President Harris who flew out there to save him could say about why the people of California should vote for him, was…wait for it…he’s not Trump! Ah, the go-to mantra for the left when another unimpressive failing candidate who has no merits or record to stand on needs something – anything – for why they should be elected. In California, the anti-Trump rhetoric works well enough to get even the most shameful people into office. Fortunately for the rest of America, that’s not the case almost anywhere else, as we all know.

What I admire about Larry Elder, aside from his coming out of South Central Los Angeles to graduate from Brown University and the University of Michigan to then practice law for ten years before his becoming a radio talk show host, is his concession speech. He closed saying , “We may have lost the battle, but we sure as hell are going to win the war.” That is the spirit, gumption and tenacity needed.

Californians: Vote For Larry Elder For Governor

Elect Larry Elder for Governor of California Campaign Sign

September 13, 2021

Written by Juliana Simone

Like many Americans are thinking tonight, the hope is that Californians recognize what a dire state they are living in under sitting democrat Gavin Newsom and will vote for Larry Elder tomorrow on Tuesday, September 14, 2021. The vote should be unanimously in favor of Elder who would have a strong chance of finally turning the largest state in America in a positive direction and bringing it back to its once golden status. California was a state people dreamed of going to and traveled far to get there to put down stakes and make a successful life for themselves and their future generations.

Under democrat leadership, it’s whittled away to near ruin and drove away many of those born and raised residents to new homes in other states. California is the only place with such a high declining population as people flee from the many and exorbitant taxes, weak illegal immigration policies, skyrocketing crime and homeless rates and an overbearing big government for greener pastures anywhere else regardless of direction. So much so they lost a congressional seat this year.

Newsom personifies all that is negative about California with his reckless spending, liberal legislation, and clueless personal mindset that makes him blind to how the people he represents as Governor live under his rule while he lives above it all flitting from one fun event to another in privileged seclusion from the sad reality all around him. Like most left leaning politicians, his private security detail keeps him away from the violence others have to deal with every day in California, so reducing the police forces that keep his people safe and restricting gun ownership for citizens self-protection seem like fine ideas. His list of failures as the head of this once fine state is long, and it’s why over two million people signed the petition to recall him from office.

The vote is tomorrow for those who still vote the real way, in person. Let’s hope there are a lot of voters who still plan on filling out their ballots in their local polling places, since mail in ballots clearly lose their way or end up counted or uncounted in mysterious ways. There is a news story that’s been out for a few weeks that the vote by mail ballots have been printed in such a way that there is a keyhole type punch on the back of the envelopes that will show if the voter voted for Newsom or not. Unbelievable but if this is still the fact, why was it allowed? Republicans are also reporting they’ve been told that they’ve already voted, when they in fact have not, so the fix is already in as far as democrats and Newsom are concerned.

What they perhaps don’t understand is how many people don’t want Newsom as their Governor anymore and don’t like the liberal policies being shoved down their throats statewide and federally. Perhaps there will be enough fed up Californians regardless of party affiliation or background, to overcome any potential fraud and send the man ruining their state packing. Gavin will be fine. More time to dine at The French Laundry and no one will care he’s not wearing a mask despite his mandate.

Perhaps they’ll elect Larry Elder who, as the mainstream media keeps failing to mention as he’s in the wrong party as a Republican, would be the first Black American to be the Governor of California. A long serving career conservative talk radio host, his fiscal policies would right the state economically. His values would reduce the growing crime wave and make streets and homes safe again. His life travels from growing up in a tough neighborhood in southern Los Angeles to become a successful businessman would focus on education opportunities for those who now find learning impossible. His turning the state around in a positive direction might even bring back some of the native Californians who felt they had no choice but to leave taking their families, businesses and needed taxes with them.

Larry Elder, who’s had to deal with physical threats and harassment while campaigning without a peep of outrage from the typically vocal media, has shown his strengths throughout this unfair negative barrage. How he’s dealt with all of this, except for the conservative outlets that exist for the millions of people who fight for patriotism and love of Country, shows the volume of personal convictions and inner self guidance he possesses. These qualities are what make someone a great leader. 

Living there twelve and a half years over three decades, many people I knew signed the petition for Gray Davis to be recalled at the time including myself. California is special in that it even gives voters this option. Not all states do. Twenty do altogether with different provisions. I wish I could cast my vote for Larry Elder tomorrow. Even though I haven’t lived there in well over a decade, perhaps I already did unbeknownst to me.

Vote For PReSIDENT TRUMP – tHE Whys are long

Written by Juliana Simone

November 2, 2020

For viewers watching CNN, which is the only American news channel shown throughout Europe and many other parts of the globe, or those watching any network affiliate on their local stations every night, people viewing these broadcasts would only perceive President Donald J. Trump, the 45th President of the United States, as a man who has no good qualities, and as a man who did nothing productive throughout his entire first term except perform some illegal activities. Even children are subjected to this messaging, whether through certain teachers at their schools or literature handed out to them which makes them believe our President is a bad person they should not respect in any way or vote for if nearing voting age. It’s a sad misuse of commentary whether public through media leverage and distribution, or private through unobserved classrooms throughout the education system K-12 and beyond.

The exact opposite is true from what these people with their anti-Trump agenda proclaim.

Donald J. Trump is one of the finest Presidents of the United States ever elected – and some scholars argue, perhaps the best. This analysis is based on how much he has achieved in almost four years; how many promises he has kept when seeking office as a candidate; how hard he pushed forward with continual attacks and false narratives against him on a daily basis from the press, the opposing Democrat party and the never-Trumpers. He was even impeached on totally bogus grounds bought and paid for by his former opponent in 2016, who was (and is) guilty of much more.

The huge appearances of United States citizens appearing at his nationwide rallies demonstrate how educated American voters are on all of these facts and so much more, as the tentacles run deep. Shouts of “We love you” are a new rally chant to let President Trump know how firmly our country stands behind him. His opponent on his best day had three hundred cars show up in a parking lot to beep their horns when he made an attempt at simulating a Trump event. Interestingly, attendees and objective reporters noted the horns only beeped when his opponent made an anti-Trump comment – not when he talked about proposed policy.

The vote for the left ticket, is only about the people who writers have deemed those with “Trump derangement syndrome” in that their unexplainable hatred for the sitting President exceeds any logic or acknowledgement of his accomplishments. Going into the final hours before Election Day, November 3rd, 2020, the left Democrat mantra has little to run on so they’ve chosen two talking points: Trump is responsible for the Coronavirus and Trump is a racist.

Sad. Neither is true, of course. COVID-19 came out of Wuhan, China and Trump immediately took the right steps to keep the virus from spreading worse here in America. His opponent at the time of Trump’s decision called him a xenophobe for this act. Trump being called a racist is really baseless with the left organized mainstream media reiterating to death, the tired claim that the President never said he was against white supremacy groups, and that he called felons from Mexico bringing their crime into the United States the reason we needed to build a wall.

The President made the right actions. Stop air travel from China and later parts of Europe to keep the Coronavirus from coming into our country, and stop gang members and criminals from Mexico coming into our country who would not abide by our laws and wreak their havoc here. Good decisions.

The list is long as to why President Donald J. Trump should be reelected for four years.

I’ll list a few most readers here would know: Supreme Court Justices appointed; lowest unemployment rate among all groups before the virus hit – and is now resounding back; tax cuts that made families, small businesses and corporations thrive resulting in a booming economy including eliminating obsolete burdensome regulations; taking business out of China and returning it to America; rebuilding our military that when he assumed Office was a dismal shell; returning health insurance from mandated Obamacare to consumer choice and lowering prescription drug cost; recognizing Israel’s Capitol Jerusalem and his Middle East Peace Treaty; making clean fossil fuel affordable to all Americans with record low prices; dissolving the ISIS Caliphate; renewing the Nation’s commitment to space exploration while also adding the Space Force, a new branch of the military directly assigned for defense; negotiating trade deals that created thousands of jobs in the U.S. and increased exports, the exceptional Republican National Convention that showed winning speakers with no stereotypical view of who understands Republicans and who votes for them, and the amazing First Lady given zero credit by females on the left, among many other things.

The list is long! Look it up on an unscrubbed search engine, uncensored social media network or objective website if you need more reasons to vote in our patriotic 45th President of the United States of America, Donald J. Trump.

JUSTICE AMY CONEY BARRETT SWORN IN AFTER SENATE CONFIRMATION

October 26, 2020

The U.S Senate voted tonight in a 52-48 vote to confirm President Trump’s third Justice to be appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court – Amy Coney Barrett, Esq. The 48 year old mother of seven children, the first Supreme Court Justice to be young enough to have children, is also now the only sitting Justice to not have graduated from an Ivy League college. (Harvard/Yale) The Notre Dame Law School grad breaks up this monopoly in a good way.

Nominated by President Donald J. Trump in May 2017 for the Seventh U.S Court of Appeals, she was vetted by the U.S. Senate and voted on in October 2017. As an exceptionally qualified candidate, she was easily sworn in to this appointment despite extremely long-term U.S. Senator Diane Fienstein.  As the top Judiciary Committee member, in 2017, she made an anti-Catholic comment to Barrett – “the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s of concern.” 

It was a fine moment to see Justice Clarence Thomas swear her in this evening, administering the constitutional oath. Barrett’s role as Justice on the U.S. Supreme Court will be able to begin after Chief Justice John Roberts administers her oath on Tuesday. Roberts, who was considered a conservative appointment to the court at the time under President George W. Bush, has proved to be at best, in the middle. All true patriots of America hope to see Justice Amy Coney Barrett rule fairly and according to the Constitution.

Town Hall Debates – A Sabotage VS. A Conversation

October 15, 2020

Like most viewers that are knowledgeable about politics on a daily basis, I expected tonight’s interviews given to President Donald J. Trump and former Vice President and Democrat Party Nominee, Joe Biden, to be hardball vs. softball. Trumps questions – hardball; Biden’s questions – softball. The results were worse than anyone could imagine. All of the questions were a complete retread of the lefts tired talking points for the President, which have all been answered by Trump a multitude of times and have no bearing.

The shrill NBC broadcaster given tonight’s assignment, Savannah Guthrie, was chomping at the bit to ask absurd questions, glibly interrupt and in her own mind seemed to believe she knew more than the President. She was a complete embarrassment for the left. Guthrie had complete disrespect for a sitting President, who has immense popularity that proves the mainstream medias ignorance in recognizing this status.

All questions were clearly written before the televised event, for both the voters selected to ask President Trump a question, and for Guthrie. Guthrie did try to rebut Trump off her cards, but this breach only showed her partisanship.

Bizarrely, within the first ten/fifteen minutes of the televised program, she showcased questions which included sexual pedophilia that she masked just for the words to be transcribed. Ms. Guthrie, you’re talking to the wrong Party Candidate. (This is all Democrat scandal – look up Jeffrey Epstein and all who willingly went to his private island to have sex with under aged girls; Huge Clinton Fundraisers and their close relationship with contributor Harvey Weinstein – I just realized writing this paragraph the list is too long to post now. ) Regardless, I can’t imagine network personnel asking any sitting President any questions of this kind – if so, they certainly could have asked President John F. Kennedy many similar queries.

Trump did his best to be polite to the blatantly partisan interrogator, who could be called many other words, but I’ll let the people decide as I’m sure they’ve already come to the same conclusion. Another premeditated hit job by the left that wastes President Trump’s time, as well as American voters.

Moving on to the Biden town hall interview. Out of curiosity, I tuned in when Trump’s broadcast went to advertisements, and briefly afterwards. At least it wasn’t as bad as where interviewer Barbara Walters back in the day, Biden would be asked what tree he would be if he could be a tree – or what his favorite color was – or what his favorite toppings on a pizza were – but, there was no discussion of any serious scandal relevant in the news currently. He continued to vacillate on fracking emphasizing it needed to be “managed very very well” and said he would finally give his answer on whether or not he would pack the Supreme Court after the Senate results on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination.

There were no questions about former Vice President Biden’s son Hunter, and the big current news story from the New York Post, which is being censored by social media icons, which details the incriminating emails and video found on a computer left at a store for repair. The store’s consumer agreement made clear that if any computer was not picked up after 90 days, it would become their property.

Whether it was Hunter himself who left it at this shop, an aide or friend, no one returned for it, so the owner of the store kept it. Seeing what was on the hard drive, he turned it in to Rudy Giuliani or one of his staff. If this had been turned into the New York Times, no one would have ever seen this data.

Voters need to realize whenever President Trump is in a debate on national television hosted by a major network, the moderator will be a democrat holding loaded questions that have little to do with truth and much to do with alienating Trump voters for the purpose of electing the addled former VP Biden. Biden, as well as running mate Harris, another story for another day, will only be given easy Q and A’s with no real journalism behind them to find out the real truth.

Why We CELEBRATE COLUMBUS DAY

October 12, 2020

There were many fine articles written for publication today as to why Columbus Day remains immensely significant as to the history of the United States of America, by people such as Jarrett Stepman. In his post today, “The Truth About Columbus,” he covers who Columbus really was as an explorer, what his real goals were in making this famous voyage and discusses how the view of Columbus from a man of courage and vision has been destroyed over time by a historian, Howard Zinn, who was far to the left. 

Another article explains how the lynching of eleven Italian-Americans brought about Columbus Day out of respect for this group of European immigrants who brought much to our country but were often unappreciated and disparaged. https://medium.com/@nevaer1/the-lynching-that-gave-us-columbus-day-eb5179b01aca

The Wall Street Journal published online this piece yesterday: https://www.wsj.com/articles/columbus-day-stands-for-diversity-11602446541

Zinn hated not only Columbus but North America in general, and pushed his view of Columbus on to generations as one of a man who only was seeking profit, and left a huge massacre of Native Indians behind him. In truth, he was a man seeking not only geographical knowledge (remember people believed back then the world was flat and anyone sailing too far would fall off the edge of the Earth) but also how to bring Christianity and faith throughout the lands.

Yes, like any voyager sailing the seas at this time, some profit was hoped to be found, especially by any royals or investors funding them. Columbus hoped to find money, to bring religion to all to save the world from a perceived apocalypse after the plague and other omens, and bring Jerusalem back into Christian hands. A man of peace, any wrong doings that occurred to Natives, happened during his absence. He was never a slave owner nor did he have anything to do with the slave trade.

Americans today, as well as people from other countries who have started to believe the untrue view of Christopher Columbus, need to also remember that this October 12th national holiday was established to recognize the many Italian-Americans who came to this nation seeking opportunity, contributed greatly to building its landscape, even while they were not welcomed by groups such as the Ku Klux Klan.

The KKK were an anti-Catholic anti-Italian racist organization made up of southern white democrats, who did their best to put the brakes on the creation of Columbus Day, and like in modern times today, went out to smash statues, burn, protest and change the positive view of Columbus.

On the 400th anniversary of the Columbus voyage, Columbus Day was presented by then President Benjamin Harrison in 1892, after the horrific largest lynching on record in this country of eleven Italian-American’s in New Orleans, LA. Despite the gesture, it wasn’t until 1934 it became an official national holiday, though some states still refused to recognize it.

Interestingly, Columbus Day remains controversial once again, as active non-peaceful groups in our cities and on our streets today, whether anti-Catholic, anti-Christian, anti-Italian, anti-American, anti-history, anti-Constitution, anti-Founding Fathers, anti-Caucasian, seek to destroy all standing statues of Christopher Columbus as well as his legacy as a brave pioneer on unknown oceans. 

He was the sole individual who had the strength to pursue what he believed to be true, and a man the majority of people that have made him a current object of hatred for all of his greatness could never be. He is a man to be honored and not disgraced.

As our 40th and some believe to be our finest President, Ronald Reagan said in a commemorative note on one Columbus Day:

Columbus is justly admired as a brilliant navigator, a fearless man of action, a visionary who opened the eyes of an older world to an entirely new one. Above all, he personifies a view of the world that many see as quintessentially American: not merely optimistic, but scornful of the very notion of despair.”

According to Columbus himself, “You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.” Christopher Columbus.

Columbus was the gateway Captain who navigated to Caribbean islands, Central and South American shores, and provided trade for Spain with the development and discovery of the Americas.

President Trump Awards Medal Of Freedom To Talk Radio Host Rush Limbaugh

Those close to the famous host whose syndicated radio program, “The Rush Limbaugh Show,” is heard nationally, said the renowned anchorman was unaware President Trump was going to present him with this most prestigious award during his State Of The Union address. Traditionally, the Medal of Freedom is given during a ceremony that has been planned well in advance for both the President and the recipients.

The First Lady, Melania Trump, who sat next to the famed political commentator and author during the speech, had the honor of placing the medal around his neck, after the President announced to the chamber he was bestowing this award to Limbaugh. Rush was accompanied by his wife of ten years, Kathyrn.

Limbaugh, a true patriot and proud American, revealed to listeners in the final minutes of his Monday show (February 3rd, 2020) that he has been diagnosed with advanced lung cancer. He notified his millions of fans he has the best team of doctors who will determine what his most effective treatment plan is for recovery.

Rush is scheduled to appear on his show this Friday. He is expected to share his insights on receiving the Medal of Freedom, the State Of The Union Address and what it was like to be there live witnessing the positive applause and ovations for the President from his fellow Republicans, as well as the negative response from the Democrats who rarely applauded, even when statements made by the President were good for all of our country.

Democrats also failed to give little positive reaction to the many fine featured guests President Trump invited to be recognized for their amazing stories that personify what makes America great including a serving veteran with a surprise reunion with his wife, and an eighth-grader, Lain Lanphier, who aspires to be an astronaut, who was accompanied by his great-grandfather, Charles McGee, who is one of the last surviving Tuskegee Airmen at the age of 100.

During his time on and off air, Limbaugh will have a variety of notable fellow talk radio hosts filling in for his show. Mark Steyn, a Canadian author and commentator often seen on the Fox News Network, and perhaps most fans favorite substitute host, filled in yesterday and today. He told listeners yesterday he owed Rush everything.

Many people feel this way about the conservative radio host who has contributed so much to countless charities, individuals and causes. We all pray for Rush Limbaugh’s return to good health and many more years on the airwaves.

CPAC 2013: Donald Trump

Written by Juliana Simone

National Harbor, MD – The man known for more than a decade to native New Yorkers as “The Donald” took the stage this afternoon to address an enthusiastic crowd convened for the 2013 Conservative Political Action Conference celebrating its 40th anniversary on the shores of the Potomac River in Maryland. Self-made billionaire Donald Trump opened his monologue by telling the audience our country is in terrible trouble.

He cited we owed seventeen trillion dollars and have more than a trillion dollar deficit a year. “No country’s ever heard of numbers like this!” he observed. “Likewise, the Republican Party is in terrible trouble,” he continued. “As you get more and more conservative – they get nasty. They don’t like what we say.” Trump segued into the mainstream media and how the President is given unprecedented media protection.

To offer solutions on how we solve our country’s problems, Mr. Trump first pointed out how even the Tea Party, who he loves dearly, says to leave their Medicare and Social Security alone. “To keep these things affordable then the solution is to build a great economy.” “We don’t have one,” he noted. “China does.” “We have to make America great again,” he said in appeal to the room.

On the issue of immigration, Trump stated that when it comes to immigration, eleven million people will be voting Democrat. He believed a candidate can be out in front but (when it comes to Election Day) those eleven million will be voting Democrat. “Republicans are on a suicide mission,” he said. “You’re just not going to get those votes.” Donald Trump inquired further, “Why aren’t we letting Europeans in?” and told the attendees how he had many friends who want to move here and work here – that have been educated here – but we throw them out of the country after earning a degree at Harvard or Wharton and say you can’t move here – so they work somewhere else and work against us. “How stupid is that?” he asked.

The realtor and casino owner gave a nod to fellow Republican Newt Gingrich next saying he loved Newt because he was a member of his club down the road. Trump said he loved anyone who was a member of his club and jested maybe Obama should become a member. He talked about offering to build things at his own expense for Washington but never heard back from anyone.

“Conservative Republicans have to win elections,” he proclaimed. In his observations on the Republican Party, Trump said “Governors are saying it’s the stupid party.” He thought this was a horrible statement for a Governor to make because it was something that could come back to haunt you when the Democrat’s now will turn around and use it against you. Trump told fellow conservatives he believed a Party that spent four hundred million dollars on ads that made Obama look like a super hero was a failure, and that spending money like this with not one victory showed something was seriously wrong.

About himself, he revealed he’d made over eight billion dollars in his life and employed tens of thousands of people. When he filled out his financial forms (when considering running for President in 2012) people were surprised. He said he was continually criticized by “total light weights” – guys in dirty shirts who would say about him, “Donald Trump? He’s nothing.”

Donald went on to explain people liked success and though he liked Mitt Romney, he felt the one mistake he made was that he didn’t talk enough about his success and the great things he did. He reflected they were on the defensive instead of being on the offensive where they should have been.

In regards to Iraq, Trump said we spend 1.5 trillion dollars there and we lose great great young people – for what? He said at first he was told it was for the oil, so he thought, okay, I get that – but we didn’t take the oil. He reminded viewers we’re the second largest oil reserve after Saudi Arabia. He believes for soldiers that are killed we should give those parents a million dollars for the son they lost because a million dollars is nothing compared to the money over there.

He described how he just had to place a huge order for televisions from South Korea. Why? People asked him why he didn’t buy the televisions here. “We don’t make televisions here anymore,” he explained.

“We’re run by either very foolish or very stupid people. Our country is a total mess. What we need is leadership,” he opined. He projected if we build and grow our economy, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security all can be affordable again when we have a strong economy. North Dakota has a great supply of energy, but we can’t go get it, he mused, so we go to Saudi Arabia to get it! They can’t believe what they’re getting away with. “The Republicans, and the Democrats, say we gotta cut, we gotta cut, we gotta cut…it’s because we’re not cutting the mustard!”

In closing, Trump said, “We have to bring money in and take back our jobs from China. We have to start building again, manufacturing again and our problems will be solved. Let’s make this country strong again!” The Donald left the stage to strong applause.
