President Trump Campaigns Louisiana

It would be very reasonable to ask why the most powerful man in the world would be campaigning in Louisiana on a Thursday night.  On Thursday, November 14, 2019, President Donald Trump held a huge campaign rally in Louisiana.

President Trump was campaigning in Louisiana because there is a statewide election in Louisiana on Saturday, November 16, 2019.  The most important race on the state ballot is the race for governor between the incumbent governor John Bel Edwards, who is the Democrat party nominee, and Eddie Rispone, who is the Republican party nominee.

What the fake news media will not report is the fact that the Southern Democrat party was racist to the core from the end of the U.S. Civil War until the middle 1960’s.  U.S. Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia served in the U.S. Congress for over 51 years.  Byrd was the last known Senator who was an active member of the Ku Klux Klan. Byrd was a democrat.

Senator Strom Thurmond was elected to the U.S. Senate as a Democrat and led the Dixiecrat walk out from the Democratic convention in 1948 because candidate Harry Truman was viewed as helpful toward Black Americans.  Thurmond was racist to the core against Black Americans just as was Senator Byrd.

Of course, all sane and sensible Americans should not forget Senator John Stennis from Mississippi who voted against major civil rights legislation and was a supporter of racism against Black Americans.  Stennis served in the U.S. Senate for 41 years.

When citizens of Louisiana consider reelecting Democrat John Bel Edwards as their governor on Saturday 11/16/2019, they should understand that John Bel Edwards represents most of the racist views promoted by Klansman Byrd, Dixiecrat Thurmond, and Senator Stennis.  The Republican candidate for governor, Eddie Rispone, represents the best economic interests for the working middle income citizens of Louisiana regardless of race.

Within the past ten weeks, a statewide election in Virginia allowed the democrat party to gain control of both the state house and the state senate.  With a democrat governor as the chief state executive, this was a net gain for the democrat party, and a net loss for the republican party, in an important purple state that is needed by both in the 2020 Presidential election.

President Trump hopes to prevent democrat gains in Louisiana on Saturday, 11/16/2019.  Besides the governor’s race, Louisiana has all 39 seats in the state senate and 105 seats in the House up for election on Saturday.  The governor’s race is apparently too close to project.  However, the Republican, Eddie Rispone, would be greatly helped and would probably would win if Black Citizens support Mr. Rispone.  If Black citizens support Mr. Edwards, the democrat candidate would be greatly helped and would probably win.

Report By Inspector General Michael Horowitz

When will I.G. Michael Horowitz release his report ?  Possibly it will be released in twenty years ? Maybe 18 years ?  How about 2030, that is only a little more than ten years ?

The ongoing and never ending I.G. Report by Horowitz is an insult to all law abiding Americans.  Horowitz does not even have the power to subpoena individuals.  The most sensible and sane thing that the U.S. Government could do is to shut down the never ending Horowitz investigation, hand all documents created by Horowitz to the Attorney General of the U.S., and terminate both Horowitz and the position of inspector general of the Justice department.

The insane creation of unneeded and unnecessary and totally worthless bureaucrats can clearly be understood by studying I.G. Horowitz.  The U.S. has suffered from the alleged criminalization of the Justice Department, the FBI, and the CIA.  If only 10% of the allegations are true, I can not imagine a greater injustice to President Donald Trump.

It sure did not take James Comey very long to clear Hillary Clinton of all criminal chargers and state that she should not be criminally prosecuted in 2016.

Justice delayed is justice denied.

R. Van Conoley  ( Possibly the new WOKE standard in the U.S. is that no individual is ever guilty of any crime.  With the recent election of Chesa Boudin as San Francisco’s new district attorney, some local governments clearly favor criminal behavior over law enforcement.  Sandra Lee Fewer, an elected member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors stated at a Boudin rally before the election: ” Hey, so I just got one thing to say… f*** the POA.” The POA is the police officers association. Today the homeless people can urinate and defecate in the streets and in all other areas in front of adults and even children.  What a great country we have become. )

Trump Holds Huge Mississippi Rally on Nov/01/2019

President Trump held a huge rally in Mississippi on November 1, 2019, in order to bring out the republican vote for a close race in Mississippi.  On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, Democrat Jim Hood and Republican Tate Reeves will campaign for the final vote in a General election.  The race is considered competitive.  The winner will become governor.

President Trump appeared relaxed, happy, and seemed to be having a great time as he encouraged a very enthusiastic crowd to vote for Tate Reeves for governor.  The President pointed out that the U.S. stock market reached another historic high on 11/1/2019.

The Mississippi rally is considered by experts to have been one of the President’s most successful political rallies in 2019.  The Mississippi rally is tied with the New Mexico rally held by President Trump earlier this year.  The New Mexico rally was considered by many as extremely successful because of the extremely strong Hispanic support given to President Trump by individuals attending the rally.  New Mexico was carried by Ms. Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election.  New Mexico is one of eleven purple states where neither the democrat party nor the republican party has a lock on the outcome in 2020.  President Trump increased his support with democratic voters and with independent voters in New Mexico after his New Mexico rally.  The state remains purple at this time.

R. Van Conoley  ( Rumors indicate that President Trump plans to campaign in the state of California.  Although California is considered a likely win for the democrat party in the 2020 Presidential election, President Trump believes that it is needed and necessary to “flip” an unspecified number of congressional seats from blue to red in California.  There are growing amounts of dissatisfaction in seven congressional blue districts. )

Matt Gaetz – A Leader With Courage

Matthew L. Gaetz, II, ( dob 5/7/1982 ) is a lawyer and a U.S. Representative serving the People of Florida in Florida’s first congressional district.

The Democrat party initiated an unheard of impeachment inquiry behind closed doors !  The democrat party is the majority party of the U.S. House and Nancy Pelosi is the leader and the Speaker.  Unfortunately, Ms. Pelosi and her democrat associates have changed the longstanding and customary rules of fairness and justice which have existed in the U.S. House.  Ms. Pelosi and her associates have changed customary and just rules to prohibit republican members from participating in one more witch hunt directed at President Trump.

Democrat party frontrunner for the 2020 presidential democrat primary, former Vice President Joseph Biden, stated publically that while he was Vice President under Barack Obama he threatened the President of the Ukraine. Biden told the Ukraine President that if he did not stop an investigation into corruption in the Ukraine, that he ( V.P. Biden) would terminate U.S. aid to the Ukraine ! Biden even gave the Ukraine President a strict time to terminate the corruption investigation.

The President of the Ukraine met Joe Biden’s demands. V.P. Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, was with his father on this trip to the Ukraine.  Hunter Biden was expelled from the U.S. Military for the misuse of illegal drugs.  Nevertheless, Hunter Biden allegedly received over 1.5 BILLION dollars from the Ukraine and China which could not possibly be viewed as anything other than an outright bribe to Vice President Biden and the Obama Administration !

Recently an unknown individual, WHO HAD NO FIRSTHAND KNOWLEDGE of a call made by President Trump to the new Ukraine President, contacted member(s) of the democrat party in the U.S. House and claimed that President Trump had committed an illegal act. Any sane and sensible individual can easily understand  that the democrat actions in the U.S. House are not only illegal and unjust, but are designed to damage President Trump politically.  The unknown individual has claimed whistleblower status although he is not legally entitled to have this status since he has no firsthand knowledge.

No matter how vital people believe the role of leadership is in a political movement, a potential leader can not create conditions which make the rise of a political movement possible.  There has to be an eagerness to follow a leader.

However, once the stage is set, the rise of an outstanding leader is indispensable !  An outstanding leader needs the iron will, the daring, and the vision to mobilize existing individuals into a powerful movement.

Representative Matt Gaetz had the wisdom and the courage to assume the leadership against a corrupt and reprehensible democrat party in the House.  Matt Gaetz moved from a little known congressman to a powerful leader and has mobilized individuals in the House to oppose the unconstitutional, sleazy and illegal actions of some unethical democrats in the U.S. House.  Mr. Gaetz, with his courage and his intelligence, has moved to the front of the line and is the de-facto leader of a Constitutional movement which places him as the third most powerful man in the U.S. today.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: Mr. Gaetz earned his B.S. Degree from Florida State University and earned his JD Degree from William and Mary. )

Operation Mongoose, George H.W. Bush, and Attorney General William Barr

On November 30, 2019, next month, it will be the 58th. anniversary of the signing by President Kennedy of the authorization for the CIA to implement Operation Mongoose.  The effects of this authorization led to the failed Bay of Pigs Invasion of Cuba and later to the Cuban Missile Crisis.

The Cuban Missile Crisis led the U.S. and the Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war as the U.S. forces implemented DEFCON 3.  Fortunately World War III was averted and the U.S. and the Soviet Union reached an accommodation.  BUT IT WAS VERY CLOSE !

The above information is recounted to assist Americans in understanding the power and importance vested in the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In military speak, the Director of the CIA is designated DCI. In the past any DCI was considered to be an individual of the highest levels of intelligence and integrity.

George H.W. Bush was appointed DCI by President Ford and remained in that position for almost a year. Bush left in 1977, when Jimmy Carter was elected President.  GHW Bush was later selected by Ronald Reagan to be the vice-presidential candidate on the republican ticket.  GHW Bush served with distinction as vice-president for eight years. Later GHW Bush was elected to the office of president and became the 41st. president of the U.S.

When GHW Bush was president, he appointed William Barr to the office of Attorney General.  William Barr served with distinction as the 77th. Attorney General of the U.S. Also, William Barr was employed by the CIA before he was appointed AG of the U.S.

On February 14, 2019, President Donald Trump appointed William Barr to serve as Attorney General of the U.S. again.  President Trump appointed Mr. Barr because Barr had an outstanding reputation as a man of the highest integrity and the highest level of intelligence.  President Trump made this appointment knowing that Mr. Barr would be tasked with investigating the ” Russian Investigation” that was a failed attempt to depict Mr. Trump as colluding with Russia.  Mr. Trump has been cleared of all charges and was not found to have committed any crimes nor was Mr. Trump found guilty of any wrongdoing.

Unfortunately the Russian Investigation strongly appears to have been a partisan witch hunt designed by democrats to deprive Trump of his legal rights and damage Mr. Trump and his family.  It strongly appears that President Obama, in conjunction with Hillary Clinton and many others, criminalized the FBI, the Justice Department, and the super powerful CIA.

AG Barr has appointed John Durham to assist with the most important criminal investigation in the history of the U.S. Presently four individuals are under criminal investigation and all may be criminally indicted depending on the results of the Barr-Durham investigation.  The individuals under investigation are: 1) John Brennan, 2) James Clapper, 3) Peter Strzok, and 4) Christopher Steele.

John Brennan was DCI appointed by Barack Obama.  James Clapper was DNI appointed by Barack Obama.  Since these two men held such high positions in the government of the U.S., if either or both of these men are adjudicated guilty of criminal activities, it would be an act of Treason against the U.S. government and the American People.  I believe that it is only fitting and proper to seek the death penalty for either or both of these individuals.  Treason is the most serious crime that an American can commit. Both of these men are already on record as known liars.  Both have given false statements on television and before the U.S. Congress.

In addition to Brennan and Clapper, there are many others who are allegedly involved with the cowardly attempts to destroy candidate Donald Trump, President elect Trump, and finally President Trump.  Others who may soon be criminally indicted are: 1) Hillary Clinton, 2) Bill Clinton, 3) Loretta Lynch, 4) James Comey, 5) Andrew McCabe, 6) Lisa Page, 7) Rod Rosenstein, 8) Bruce Orr, 9) Nellie Orr, and numerous others involved with the Clinton Foundation and members of the fake news media who may be indicted for abetting and aiding an ongoing criminal enterprise.

The U.S. has not executed anyone for Treason since Julius and Ethel Rosenberg. The definition of treason is the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the president or OVERTHROW the elected government.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: U.S. Senator Rand Paul began a talking filibuster which lasted for 13 hours in order to protest the confirmation of John Brennan to become DCI. In spite of Senator Paul’s best efforts, the Senate confirmed the Obama appointment by a vote of 63 to 34. )

( Editors Note 2- Donald Trump revoked Brennan’s security clearance after Mr. Trump became president.  But the most shameful thing in this whole sordid and corrupt mess was that NBC and MSNBC employed Brennan as a political analyst for their respective networks.  I suppose that NBC and MSNBC hired John Brennan because the Boston Bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was not available. )

Advice To Tulsi Gabbard

After reading your outstanding Tweet, I researched your website.  I really admire greatly your wise and truthful comments about Queen Hillary.  Be extra careful, she might send her husband, Bill, over to molest you.

Your statement about Hillary being the embodiment of corruption seems to define Ms. Clinton perfectly.

Might I respectfully suggest that your website should accept a person’s name and address if they wish to donate money to you.  I do not usually admit that I am over 39, but I have been on this earth for about seven decades.  While I have a number of college and university degrees, I am an ” old fashioned ” guy that would never list my charge card number on any website listed on the computer.   I bet that there are a lot of people that might wish to donate some funds to your campaign legally but would only do so by writing a check.

Sadly your campaign has no campaign address and no phone number.  If your campaign website accepted an address of an individual who did not wish to donate to you by charge card for whatever reason, your campaign could send the individual a form by mail and the supporter could fill out the card and mail a campaign check to you.  Also, some Senior citizens, who are well known to turn out on election day, often wish to contribute only by checks.

I suggest that you run your campaign in a way that invites all to contribute to you, even those who wish to mail your campaign a check.  I would bet that 60%, or more, of citizens over the age of 55 years would be comfortable if they could donate to you by way of checks.

Also, I really liked your statement at the end of the campaign debate about the word aloha.  You were the only candidate that spoke about respect.  That means to me that you have respect toward me and wish to engender respect between people.

Thank you for your distinguished military service to our country.  Good luck to you.

R. Van Conoley ( I suppose that it is OK to like both you and Donald Trump.  Both you and Trump have been treated reprehensibly by the corrupt and fake news media.  I was glad that you had the strong courage to condemn the false news stories about you. )

Tulsi Gabbard’s Tweet To Hillary Clinton

Tulsi Gabbard, Democratic candidate for president, tweeted the following response to Hillary Clinton.

” Thank you @Hillary Clinton. You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain. ”

WWW.Sanityandsense.com is delighted that an elected member of congress has finally come out and spoken the truth about Hillary Clinton.  What a wonderful and true statement.

Hillary Clinton implied that ” Russians were grooming” Ms. Gabbard !

I can just see President Putin saying to one of his assistants: ” Comrade send this woman one of my pictures with me riding a horse without a shirt. “

President Trump Pledges To End The Endless and Unnecessary U.S. Wars

This website has published two articles about the Kurds.  Our concern and information about the Kurds did not start this week, this month, or this year.  The first article was published nine years ago.  Sanityandsense.com published on 12/26/18 an article titled: ” President Trump – Please Save The Kurds.”  On 10/11/10 an article was published titled: ” The Upcoming Israeli-Iranian War.”  Readers are encouraged to read or reread these articles by typing the word, Kurds, into the search box on the home page of this website. Then click go and the articles will appear.

With the extraordinarily corrupt democrat party working in conjunction with the fake news media 24/7, this website believes that the great wisdom displayed by President Trump was not fairly reported and the fake news media distorted basic facts.

First of all, this issue is not a republican versus democrat issue like the border wall or the economy.  It is much deeper and much more complex than that.  The facts support that there are members of the republican party and members of the democrat party who both support the never ending U.S. involvement in wars around the world.  Facts also support that there is also a group of republicans and democrats who agree with President Trump and oppose the never ending war scenario.

Individuals who agree with the position recently taken by President Trump remind Americans that the U.S. is not the policeman of the world and that it is not our business to commit American forces to wars that many consider un-winnable and un-necessary.  These individuals often quote President Eisenhower’s warning of the growing ” Military Industrial Complex.”

There are individuals who disagree with President Trump.  These people are often called neocons or neoconservatives.  These neocons do indeed support the belief that the U.S. is the policeman of the world.  They want the U.S. to become involved and remain involved in foreign wars.  Often these neocons who support foreign wars are embarrassed when a sharp commentator asks a simple question like: ” You strongly supported the Vietnam War. You were of military age during that war.  Why then did you ask for an exemption and avoid service to your country.” Many neocons support foreign and un-winnable wars as long as they do not have to serve in the U.S. Military, nor do any of their children or their grandchildren.

Until Donald Trump stated that the U.S. is going to stop fighting long and un-winnable wars, the neocons could not have cared less about the Kurds.  Now the neocons suddenly have a great concern for the Kurds.  Now the neocons are very worried about the Kurds.

Since I published my first article on this website about the Kurds nine years ago, it is very fair to say that I have demonstrated a compassion for the Kurdish people.  I strongly commend President Trump for sending Vice President Mike Pence to speak in person with Turkey’s President, Recep Tayyip Erdogan.  The Trump-Pence message to Mr. Erdogan was: 1) correct, 2) courageous, 3) appropriate, and 4) everything reasonable that President Trump could have reasonably done to protect the Kurds.

With Tulsi Gabbard in the democratic presidential race, Americans will hear a great deal more about American involvement in foreign wars.  Since the “fake news media” has attacked Ms. Gabbard with such venom and false reporting, she has something in common with President Trump.  If I were to advise President Trump, I would suggest to him that he invite Ms. Gabbard to the White House to have a cup of coffee with him.  Even though  Tulsi disagrees on many issues with President Trump,  I know that the President and Ms. Gabbard could have a civilized and polite and an adult conversation with each other even though they only have agreement on Trump’s projected use of the U.S. Military.  If I were Trump, I would do this right away because there is not a single democrat in congress except Tulsi that would show and display the proper respect for a President of the U.S.

R. Van Conoley ( Editor’s Note: U.S. Senator Rand Paul is the junior senator from Kentucky.  He is the son of former U.S. Representative Ron Paul of Texas who was a presidential candidate in 1988, 2008, and 2012.  Senator Rand Paul campaigned for President in 2016, and stated that the U.S. involvement in ” never ending foreign wars” is not I the best interests of the U.S. )

Huge Rallies Held By President Trump: Minnesota and Louisiana

President Trump held a massive rally to a cheering audience in Minnesota on Thursday, October 10, 2019.  Mayor Jacob Frey attempted to discourage the Trump rally and to prohibit local police officers from wearing their uniforms to the rally.  Police Lt. Bob Kroll and other officers attended the Trump rally wearing T-Shirts that said: COPS FOR TRUMP.

Minnesota is a state that democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, won in the 2016,  presidential election.  President Trump plans to win Minnesota in the 2020 Presidential election.  Senator Tom Cotton, Republican from Arkansas, attended the Trump rally and received a very warm and enthusiastic reception when introduced.  Senator Cotton is considered by many to be a serious vice-presidential or presidential candidate in the future after the 2020 election.

On Friday, October 11,2019, President Trump held a rally in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  The crowds were overflowing and President Trump looked energized and relaxed.  Louisiana has a primary election that will be held on Saturday, October 12, 2019.  Democratic governor John Bel Edwards is the present governor and is a candidate in the primary election.  Mr. Trump came to support two republican candidates in the Saturday primary.  Republican Ralph Abraham and Republican Eddie Rispone are on the gubernatorial ballot.

Louisiana has a ” jungle primary,” where all candidates for governor are on the ballot on Saturday, 10/12/2019.  The candidates are not identified by party and citizens may vote for any candidate regardless of party affiliation.  If no candidate receives an absolute majority of votes, the top two candidates enter the general election on November 16, 2019.

Louisiana U.S. Senator John Kennedy appeared at the Trump rally and received an enthusiastic welcome from the Trump supporters.  Louisiana Senator Kennedy is considered one of the most knowledgeable men in the U.S. Senate and carries a copy of the U.S. Constitution in his shirt pocket while in the Senate.  Trump poked fun at Senator Kennedy’s Southern accent, but went on to acknowledge the outstanding academic credentials of Senator Kennedy including a degree from Oxford University.

U.S. Representative Steve Scalise was also enthusiastically welcomed by the Trump crowd.  Rep. Scalise was shot, and seriously injured, by a democratic supporter after Trump’s election as President.
