Iowa and our future

January 11, 2016

Sorry to say I haven’t been here blogging lately as there have been medical issues with my family. Working all issues out and will be back posting information about the Iowa caucus and the others in the pipe.

As we stated on Patriot Express Radio more than 6 years ago these next few elections are critical. The results will bring our nation back to logical and responsible leadership agenda turning back the PC police.

Or, we will continue down the path that we have traveled over the past 80 years and continue to erode the quality of life in America for every citizen with the egregious spending habits of those elected to represent our best interest.

With 19 trillion dollars in Federal debt plus over 122 trillion in unfunded mandates we definitely need new ideas and leadership roaming the Halls of Congress as well as 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Our nation will be destroyed in the next few decades if we do not curtail our out of control spending, our entitlement mentality and our nations dumbing down of it’s citizens all in the name of power.

Be vigilant how you vote. Know your candidates and ask the important questions which are relevant to you. We need help.

The New Year Ahead

January 18, 2015

The New Year ahead will bring many changes to Patriot Express Radio. The past year I have devoted more time to my businesses and less time to my blogs. This was not my intention, however bills had to be paid. With the new year my plan is to revamp the website, upgrading the content with modern technology to have much  more information and messaging available.

This we are currently working on, within two months we should be up and running on the new platform. Just in time for the campaigning cycle as we follow what is happening across this great nation of ours.  Stay tuned as Patriot Express Radio moves into a new era, we are excited for the change. Thank you one and all.


What happened to taking personal responsibility for our actions

December 8, 2014

After all the recent demonstrations across the country I have to ask, what happened to taking personal responsibility for our actions?  We as a nation have continually elected individuals to serve as public servants who continue to take this country off the deep end of which we will soon be at the point of no return.

Our nation just went over 18 trillion in debt. Our president wants 263 billion as a response to what took place in Ferguson as looters and rioters destroyed the city. Yes, camera’s on police will stop all the violence in this nation. Sure we have a few individuals in uniform who may push the envelop of power but when citizens resist a command from a uniformed officer and becomes combatant, where is the accountability for their actions.

Each day our police and military personal dress in their uniforms to protect the American people with the knowledge they may take their last breath at anytime during their daily routine.  That is the price they may have to pay for protecting our freedoms which we value so deeply.

Why are individuals allowed to disrespect those in uniform by resisting a command to cease and desist in the activity they are engaged in, then when something  bad happens we do not hold those individuals accountable for their actions?  Obey the command, listen to the request and after all is said and done if you don’t like the treatment or the outcome of the situation file a complaint and/or hire a lawyer to resolve the issue at hand.

Death is a terrible thing when it is unexpected, we feel for the families that have lost loved ones through no fault of their own. Death by the hand of another individual is devastating for all families involved premeditated or not.

Tragedy can be averted in many cases if individuals respected their lives more then their hatred of the law.  Peaceful protesting is the American way to help spread the message in a responsible way not looting and rioting, burning down a city to make a point. No one wins there.


Why Raising the Minimum Wage Is So Important

February 9, 2014

The new issue that our president is dealing with is the minimum wage. For all Federal contractors we will soon have a new executive order that states they will be paid $10.10 an hour guaranteed, their new minimum wage to give them livable wages.

Let’s look at this closely folks. Currently in all of America only 3.55 million individuals earn minimum wage according to the non partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report and Pew Research Center.

If you look at these numbers one would have to ask why address this issue now? Bureau of Labor released data stating federal employees on average making $114,436.00 or approximately $27,000.00 more than the private sector, could this issue be smoke and mirrors to hide some facet of this administrations agenda?

It is interesting our borders have not been secured, Gitmo is still open for business and as stated for 7 years now, “this will be the most transparent administration ever” and the State Department is under intense scrutiny for falsely stating the reason 4 brave Americans died in Benghazi with Hillary Clinton at the helm.

The IRS scandal, where the director pleaded the fifth and during an interview with The Factor once again our president didn’t see anything wrong with Lois targeting Tea Party Conservative groups. Hearing after hearing for a year now and no one is being held accountable for these actions. 

One has to wonder why raising the minimum wage is so important it is now at the top of President Obama’s agenda with all that has transpired in his administration over the past 5 years. It definitely is not because too many contractors are starving on minimum wage earnings.

Many Citizens Are Finally Giving Up

January 13, 2014

This Republic, The United States of America is one of the greatest, longest Constitutionally run government the world has ever witnessed and now many citizens are finally giving up on it.  With so many years of our elected officials continually working to destroy our way of life instead of enhancing it, working harder to get re-elected at the hands of lobbyists and special interest groups along with their own personal agenda the great individuals across the lane have finally said enough already.

The Tea Party Movement started just before the 2010 elections to shoot out we are “taxed enough already” and most of congress turned a deaf ear only to find this organization would be the downfall of many a politicians careers.  The common everyday citizen doesn’t care about the Republican agenda, or the Democratic  agenda any longer, they care about the American agenda once again.

Citizens all across the nation are taking heed to all that has been said concerning the direction our nation has traveled over the past 50 years and they are frightened. The fear the 17 trillion dollar national debt, they fear the blatant disregard our politicians have for our Constitution and all the liberties it provides us. The Patriots of this nation are ready to stand together once again as they had to do so many years ago fighting against a government that had an agenda contrary to their wants and beliefs.

As I traveled across the country talking to individuals during the 2010 campaign I realized just how upset the common folks were. Their stories were haunting. Losing their jobs, their houses and even some lost their families do to the economic hardship our government created for many of them.

The citizens are ready to make a statement for all to hear. They are crying out loud through the hillsides and the meadows, along the mountain tops and across the rivers hoping their voices will finally be heard by candidates who are once again running for America and it’s values instead of the good ole boys buddy system many have become extremely accustomed too.  Many have stated they want a candidate who will listen to the issues that are important to them not dictate what they feel strongly about.

The time is now as good people all over the nation gather to discuss running for office to remove those entrenched in the political arena secluded from reality for far too long.  We have a re-birth of individuals fed up with politics as usual, a resurgence of a love for country that trumps those with a love for the power associated with our Congress.  This next election will be one that will be remembered for a long long time.  We will see a swing in voters placing their ballots for an individual and not a political party, and that will be good.

Maybe, just maybe then we will stop spending trillions of dollars a year that we don’t have to spend just to shore up some free program to continue to get votes. Maybe, just maybe then  we will see our congress working to achieve greatness once again by holding themselves accountable to do what is right for America and not special interest.  We still are a long way from election night but there will be changes that we, patriots of this great nation, that we can believe in finally.


We shouldn’t have to second guess our President

February 21, 2013

In today’s economy with families struggling to pay their mortgages, send children to college and put food on the table we shouldn’t have to second guess our President.  When he goes out to  campaigns our thoughts should be focused on the content and not the truth.

However, with this president  at every turn  we hear so much divisive language and are giving bad information from the administration up to and including his words we have to ask ourselves what is the truth. We are being bullied into believing if Congress doesn’t pass one bill or another the nation will disintegrate and go down in flames. People won’t get social security checks, schools will closed as teachers are laid off and the list goes on and on.

Using fear to advance his cause of larger government, bigger spending packages and higher taxes on everyone has worked up to now. The majority of citizens of this nation have bought his rhetoric and continue to believe his false prophets.  When told we would fall off the fiscal cliff if we didn’t pass a stimulus package to bail out those companies “too big to fail” we bought into it. History will show it didn’t work and we did in fact head down that path of no return as he continued to give news organizations this “too big to fail” speech.

While critical of  these banks on Wall Street in public he was receiving millions from them in campaign contributions. One hand washed the other hand as he and his administration sent them billions of dollars to keep them open. With the taxpayers money there were accusations that certain banks used funds to lobby against bills that would hurt them along with giving out huge bonuses to top executives stating to keep the best produces you have to offer incentives through deception or illusion.

We heard throughout his administration on a daily basis though the president’s efforts  we ” have saved our created two million new jobs. ”  Then two hundred thousand, one million, four hundred thousand, within weeks we continually heard numbers that just didn’t add up. The fact is how do you save our create jobs when your administration was continually losing them, up to seven million at one point in time.

Now, today we face sequestration of 85 billion dollars to start March 1, 2013 if congress does not pass another bill showing where the cuts should be made.  Again, last year the president stated he would veto any attempt to block these cuts from taking place because our nation needs to get back on budget.  Today, once again  he is out there campaigning gloom and doom if these cuts take place while having members of emergency outlets as backdrops behind him.

These cuts that are slated to take place would stop our government from running for all of eight days if we had to shut down the nation’s capital because of these cuts. Of course we won’t shut down the government over 85 billion dollars but to listen to the president our military will be jeopardize, research will be devastated and vital services such as emergency responders will be degraded and the list goes on.

If our president were a leader his message would be to work together to find the cuts that are fraudulent and wasteful. He would be telling American’s we as a nation can not continue to spend 1.4 trillion dollars a year that we don’t take in. Revenues for our nation equal 2.3 trillion dollars currently and the budget has been over 3.5 trillion dollars. There is a spending problem in Washington even if they won’t admit it.
