Example of what is being circulated in conservative circles. Big Al would appreciate your opinion.


The views this mother has about Donald Trump are much like many other people.  Her characterization of Trump as the “Salty Sailor” or as “The Fireman” paint an excellent picture!!  She has written many great books about her son and family.  This is a Comment from KAREN VAUGHN, Mother of Aaron Vaughn, Navy Seal.

“Sometimes God uses the no-nonsense, salty sailor to get the job done.  Appreciating what the man is doing doesn’t mean we worship the salty sailor or even desire to be like the salty sailor.  It doesn’t even mean God admires the salty sailor.  Maybe He just knows he’s necessary for such a time as this.

I believe with all my heart that God placed that salty sailor in the White House to give this nation one more chance in November 2020.  Donald Trump is what he is – and he is still the man he was before the election – and without guilt. I very much admire what that salty sailor is accomplishing.

He’s not like me  That’s okay with me.  I don’t want to be like him.  I will never behave like him.  I know we’ve NEVER had a man like him lead our nation before.  It’s crazy and a little mind-blowing at times, but I can’t help admire the stamina and ability he has – acting with his heart rather than a calculated, PC, think tank-screened, carefully edited script.  I still believe that is WHY he became our President and WHY he’s been able to handle a landslide of adversity and STILL pass unprecedented amounts of good legislation for our country AND do great works for MANY other nations, including Israel.

I’m THRILLED with what he’s doing for my nation, for the cause of Christ (whether intentional or unintentional, doesn’t matter to me), and for the concept of rebuilding America and putting her FIRST.  I will not be ashamed of my position because others don’t see him through the same lens.

Should it matter to me if a fireman drops an f-bomb while he’s pulling me from a burning building?  Would I really care about what came out of his mouth in those moments?  Heck no!  I’d CARE about what he was DOING.  He wasn’t sent there to save my soul and I’m not looking to him for spiritual guidance.  All I’m thinking in those moments is, “Thank you, GOD, for sending the fireman.”  AND DONALD TRUMP IS OUR FIREMAN.

I’ll soon post this article again for those who still might not understand me.  This man is crass.  Okay.  He’s not careful with what he says.  Okay.  You feel offended that he’s not a typical statesman.  Okay.  But he is DOING THE JOB of rebuilding the nation my son died for… the nation I feared was on a fast track to becoming a hopeless cause

Forgive me if I’m smiling.”

        Big Al, I think she has made the point very well. I have heard my neighbor state it a bit differently. She said the Lord can use a crooked stick (not straight) to get the job done. I only hope that enough people in America can appreciate this and not send a socialist or marxist into Washington.

        It used to be in America that people used to live and let live, but now too many on the left, as Keith Oberman stated publicly, not only don’t want conservatives to have a voice, but that they should be “expunged” and “removed” from society. This sounds more like the “final sollution” the Nazi’s did than a willingness to allow others the right to their own opinion.

        Keith also included in his list of those who should be expunged Trump, Barr, AC Barrett, Sean Hannity, et al, and anyone who supports Trump, the constitution etc.

        The biggest favor Trump has done for America is to turn on the light, so to speak, so we could all see the cock roaches scurrying behind the scenes. The left has exposed themselves for who they have always been and always hidden, haters of the constitution and anyone who gets in the way of their power.

        They want to be the final arbiters of what people in America can say, what they can think, how they can worship, and what rights they will allow us to have. In effect they want to be a monarch with absolute power to tell us how to live our lives because in their elitist minds, only they can make the proper and best decisions for us.

        And they say we are nuts, go figure?

      I think, she is right that the US as nation needs a rebuild. Not sure if TRUMP is the best man for this job. I think not TRUMP, neither BIDEN can do it

      A complete reset is required. Election 2020 will not bring the required change, but maybe set the stage for the right candidates in 2024.

      Agree with Lance, that Trump probably lost the election. Biden might be not the right for the job, but maybe the right for the required change. He will be already 78 at the beginning and 82 at the end of his first term. So he might only stay one term and both parties, republicans and democrats have the chance for a complete new start. That is my hope.

        Thomas, rather than inappropriately throw stones at either side, I will agree with you. I believe in my heart of hearts that Trump really tried to “clean the swamp” but in the end he has not completely succeeded.

      I have spent some time this morning going over the comment from Dot G which I did respond to yesterday.

      I agree in that Trump is , in my opinion a “salty salorr” and I really wish that he was a bit more diplomatic. The fact is that he is not diplomatic at all and that causes a lot of people to hate him. I disagree with Dot G in that I know all of you pretty well after the close to ten years that you have been commenting on my blog. (I really would prefer to call it “your blog” but then again I did start it and I now have to live with the consequences which in some cases have been very negative for me personally.

      I believe that all of you are caring and intelligent individuals and that none of you “believe that all democrats are left and hate all of them. I also do not believe that even the most adamant of you do not really believe that Obama worships the devil. He may not be a Christian in the same way that OOTB, some others of you, and I are. That is certainly possible. But, I think that we all agree that he is a bit misguided in many of his political and societal views. Sure Black folks have, in many cases, been treated treated terribly but that is rapidly becoming a thing of the past. I don’t even come close to condoning any of these past negative actions.

      Being the Christian that he is, I don’t believe that OOTB feels that way either. Tony has been here for a long time and I know that he shares my feelings.

      Those who I did not mention above, like CFS, Larry, Eddy, Wayne and others are so intelligent that I know that they also do not feel that way. Our listener in Austin is a very good man and is definitely on the side of those here who think clearly and accurately.

      I am proud to know all of you and consider each and everyone of you to be close to me. None of us hate anyone other than those who break the law and have turned America into an environment that reminds me of a cesspool.

      My purpose here has always been and continues to be a forum where all can express their opinions.

      Some of the opinions may be extreme but they are shared in true conscience and mean no harm.

      Bottom line, we all want to see America stay free and become a better place.

          House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said Sunday morning that the House has plenty of options available to delay the Senate from acting on President Donald Trump’s nominees for the Supreme Court.

          “Well, we have our options,” she said on ABC’s “This Week,” replying to host George Stephanopoulos’ question about whether the House would consider launching impeachment proceedings to block the confirmation of a Trump Supreme Court nomination.

          “We have arrows in our quiver that I’m not about to discuss right now, but the fact is we have a big challenge in our country. The president has threatened to not even accept the results of the election with statements that he and his henchmen have made.”
          Less than a day after the death of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Trump assured voters that his administration would be moving ahead with nominating a new justice before the election.

    Unfortunately, my belief has been for most of my life, that you cannot beat the media in the end.
    That is sad, because President Trump is the first politician in my lifetime that has tried to accomplish what he promised. That in the face of lies and attacks from Democrats on every front from which they could bring guns to bear.
    His defeat at the election, in my opinion, would result in a truly disastrous alternative of a old man tending towards senility, would be so should he live another four years, and an overt Marxist, who slept her way to the top.

      Mr. Moriarty is incorrect about January 20. He apparently does not know either the law or the 6 precedents we have had.

      Admittedly the precedents were about a century ago.
      However, the president will be that person who holds the most electorial college votes on a specific date (I forget which), I think, in early January.

      In the post civil war period several Southern states tried several times to mess up the Presidential election by refusing to transmit electorial college votes, but this did not stop the election of a President, even though the winner did not have half of total electorial college votes possible.

      Mr. Moriarty is, of course, correct with regard to Mueller, a corrupt Democrat.

      He is also correct about General Flynn and the corrupt judge Sullivan.

        I don’t know if Mr. Moriarty is correct about hyper-inflation.

        There NEVER has been hyper-inflation before with a reserve currency.
        I guess there is always a possibility of a first time event.

      You make a very good point. You are a smart guy, CFS. How did it ever get to this point?

    Big Al, in reference to your question to me, all I can say is that it is very difficult for me to watch the current demise of the republic and the sheer anger and hypocrisy I see each day. Sometimes I admit I lose my composure and look at the ceiling and complain at the utter insanity I see, but then I try to remember that God deals in the affairs of men and he has his purposes to fulfill for the benefit of his children. He knows the end from the beginning and therefore has a better perspective than we can have

    It is my faith in him and in his work that keeps me grounded. I remember a time when I had a particularly difficult job as a cooks’ asst. at a scout camp on Catalina Island at age 16. I was working 16-18 hours a day, 6 days a week helping to prepare and clean up after 500 scouts and leaders all Summer long, for a measly $129 for the entire Summer.

    Frequently, I would go back to the rest room, stare at the ceiling and tell myself “time will pass, and before you know it all of this difficulty will be over…and things will be better.” This attitude of taking the long view helped me to endure well my difficulties. It is applicable to what we now are wading through…time will pass and things will be better, but we may have to slog through some more difficulties until we get there.
