McNaughton Fine Art

Jon McNaughton is an American artist that paints stunning and emotional moving works of art. Sometimes political, religious, and always brilliant. I’ve been following his work for years and always admired his amazing works of art. This is a timeline of artwork that has grabbed my attention and, at times, lifted my spirit. Please visit his website and social media site to learn more. The link is at the top of this paragraph.

I want to share two paintings that I found deeply extraordinary in contrast between two United States Presidents. I agree with the context and message in these works of art. There are many more works that I would love to share, but I would like visitors to go to the artist site where they can be enveloped in this unique and fascinating chryselephantine mastery.  These are YouTube videos by the artist himself. I believe it will tease your senses to see and learn more about these masterpieces of ingenuity.

The Forgotten Man

This pointedly shows the displeasure of the Founding Fathers as the first black President steps on the Constitution. It shows the despair of every American man, woman and child, rights being violated by a uncaring President that is more enamored with ruling the world, over protecting the citizens. It also shows the evil satisfaction of former Presidents that approve of the designed socialism into the fabric of America. The forced dependence on government, over the individual’s pursuit of happiness.

Obama, or b. hussein, as I like to call him, cared little for Americans. He was a Rock Star for world socialists that stroked his ego, while laughing behind his back. Obama created an second entitlement of no borders and big government. Obama used class and economic warfare to further divide Americans into the ‘haves and have nots’.  The animosity and envy created a level of dependency that entitled the leftist to protest the successfulness of the individuals.

Obama said, “You didn’t build that! Someone else did.” Obama said success is not a result of someone either working hard, or being smart, and that if you started your own business, you didn’t build it yourself.

Obama was setting up the rage of fascism growth in America. Obama was setting up the rage of racism in America. Obama was setting up the hatred of Americans against America. This is the legacy of a fascist President, the failure of a leftist President, and a racist angry President.

There can be no doubt that the riots and unrest in America today is a result of the Obama regime. The left feels entitled to lash out and destroy, while liberal democrats approve as in the painting. Passively allowing the rioters room to destroy.

You Are Not Forgotten 

When Donald J. Trump decided to run for President of the United States of America, people laughed. The late night comics mocked, the leftists politicians scoffed, the fake news media giggled, and Hollyweird leftists snubbed the idea that Trump would ever have a fortuitous win for the highest office in the world. Indeed, the polling groups predicted that Hillary Clinton was a landslide winner.  The embolden leftist believed the election was already won!  Boy, were they ever wrong!

What the political establishment forgot was that Donald J. Trump is not an ideologue. He’s not the consummate politician. The GOP establishment presented 16 of their finest warriors to compete for the office. I jest at my suggestion of GOP warriors. They are cowards. Especially the two make-believe GOP leaders, Foghorn Leghorn and Eddie Munster.  They have failed at their job.

The legacy of Obama is the snake under Trump’s heel. President Trump is learning how the Swamp Works. People should know how the corruption is Top-Down and where the money is spent. There is a pay-to-play embedded corruption in our government where accountability is only one-sided. Let’s remind ourselves how President Trump won.

Law and Order. Constitutional Rights. Love for Country. There is a trinity of values that are in alignment with the values of our Constitution. It’s why, when given the opportunity, this country thrives when government gets out of the way. No one ever wanted a President of the world, but a President of this country. Focused and deliberate, for the people.

When President Trump’s own party, the GOP, fails to work with him to pass Healthcare and Tax reform, because of a cowardliness of being a party of obstructionists, and not governance, then getting a kick in the ass is what the GOP needs to begin to work for the people.  Else, they will go the way of the Whig party.

With All Respects To Jon McNaughton and His Fine Artwork.

A National Day Of Prayer

President Donald J. Trump declares September third, twenty thousand and seventeen, a National Day of Prayer.  He’s the first President in my lifetime that invites religious leaders into the Oval Office to offer prayers of support and guidance.  He’s humble enough to bow his head in prayer for the people of this country. That is truly unique and refreshing. With Trump, it’s not about him, it’s about the people.

We haven’t had a day of prayer in a long time in this country, and it’s about time. Too often politicians are too politically correct to appease the terminally offended. These are the same people that mock people of faith, and the politicians pander to these people. One former President labeled people of faith as “Bitter Clingers“, those that cling to their guns or religion or antipathy toward people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment or anti-trade sentiment as a way to explain their frustrations.  However, this leftist President didn’t stop there, he also made a racist remark that these people of faith are white working class Americans, non-college educated, frightened, struggling, politically misguided, and anesthetized into believing that more guns and more God would solve their problems.  Pretty insulting to the voting middle America. This was a speech given to wealthy coastal liberals that look down on middle, or fly-over, America.

President Donald Trump reminds me of President Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln wasn’t church going and deeply religious President, but he read the Bible from cover to cover, and he could recite passages as if he was an Evangelist preacher. President Trump isn’t a church going President either, but he has repetitively said he gets his inspiration from the Bible.  Unlike a former President that sat in a church of hate for over 20 years, and was married by, and had his children baptized by, the very same preacher that damned America.

President Trump is hardly a Bible thumper, but his reverence and respect for Judaeo-Christian values is reflected in the values the Founders designed into the Constitution. Yet, the left calls President Trump antisemitic even though his daughter is married to a Jew, and she converted to an orthodox Jew. How does a antisemite then put his own daughter as one of his closes advisers in the White House? Actions often speak louder than words, and with some former Presidents that did attended churches, they seem rather phony in retrospect.

Both President Trump and Vice-President Pence are men of humble reverence, and I cannot be more proud to call them both leaders of the United States of America and the Free World. This is what I would expect in true leadership for this country. There a commonsense approach to governance by these men that the country has been lacking for a long, long, time.  I definitely feel safer and more confident about the future of this country.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Melania Trump watch the solar eclipse from the White House in Washington

Despite a swamp of treachery from both parties in congress, President Trump’s energy level is amazing. I was also impressed by the First Lady Melania Trump, as religious as she is, especially when she recited the Lord Prayer. A Catholic in the White House since JFK. There seems to be no end to the surprises with this family. Preconceived notions by media appearances painted a different picture in the public’s perception. Along with a hostile press and a corrupt political system, these Trump outsiders to the swamp, the Sodom and Gomorrah of American politics, they seem unfazed by all the criticism. A strength to their character.

So I will pray for them and our great country. I shudder to think what would have been the alternative. Our prayers were granted for President Trump’s election.  We will continue to pray for his success in guiding this country. We will continue to pray for our country and for all the citizens of the United States of America. Amene!

 

 

 

The Best And Worse Times

“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of light, it was the season of darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.” ― Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities

I borrowed this quote to illustrate a point in American history, that no matter how much evil exists in the world, there is always the indomitable spirit of people who believe in Life, Liberty and Happiness. No matter the desperation of their situation. In life there is always moments of great joy and excruciating sadness.  No where could this be found but in the aftermath of hurricane Harvey that struck Houston Texas.

This picture shows the extent of the humanity at its greatest. People helping people in need. Citizens stepped up and helped with the rescue efforts. The government stretched to the limits to shelter and assist people in their time of need.  The first responders (Police, Fire, EMS), quickly became overwhelmed with the amount of water from Hurricane Harvey. So without any calls for assistance, the citizens stepped up.

From Louisiana and East Texas came the Cajun Navy with their boats. The call quickly went out for more people with boats that could navigate waters in and around Houston.  The National Guard helicopters that were grounded during the torrential rains finally took to the air performing rescue operations. The rescue coordination was remarkable.  National support by religious leaders volunteered their time, money and comfort to aid those that lost everything.

Family members, including pets, rescued from rising flood waters.

Texas cowboys are amazing. They are as resourceful as our Hawaiian Paniolo’s.

Rescuing Drowning cattle and horses.

An amazing sight of cattle, horses and pets being rescued from the rising flood waters. 

 

Texas Governor Greg Abbott and President Donald Trump coordinated early before the storm hit to expedite funds and emergency services. These proactive steps are helping with the recovery effort. The scope of the damage is enormous; however, the priority is on saving lives and rescuing people. That is the purpose and number one job of government; to protect the citizens.

I don’t remember in my lifetime any President declaring his love for country and the people as President Trump often does. When President Trump addressed the people of Corpus Christi to let Texans know that help was on the way, and then the thunderous cheers when the President unfurled the Texas State flag was moving to many in Texas and all around the country. Despite the President’s critics, he’s doing a great job. His energy level is insatiable. That’s the kind of President I want. I don’t want political correctness, indecisive, timid leaders. This is what makes America strong, and great.  God bless the people of Houston Texas, and God Bless The United States of America.

 

 

 

 

The Sickness Of The Left

 

The left is a sickness that congratulates itself, and competes on how to much more sicker they can get.  The rise of fascism within the left has become more violent and more destructive.  The left’s labeling of anyone that doesn’t agree with them as bigots, racists, homophobes, islamophobes, misogynists, and xenophobes has also been echoed by the leftist media.  That has been going on for a very long time.

Remembering that the leftist media, and what President Trump rightly renamed as Fake News, has excoriated every Republican President unfairly and with impunity.  Even members of Congress, the left-wing socialist democrats of Congress, and now some (RINO) Republicans, have joined to further dishonor their office by making false accusation of bigotry against President Trump.  They have no evidence, no examples, no actual statements, and no history of President Trump being a white supremacist, a racist, nor a bigot. Yet, the fake news media would have you believe otherwise. The media is going to ignore all of President Trump’s previous statements denouncing bigotry and racism. The fascist leftist media just will not accept President Trump’s answers.  It’s a deliberate smear by a leftist media that does support Nazism and Racial Supremacy.  How do I know? Because the leftist media never calls out the blatant racist remarks by members of the socialist democrat party, because they are all in the same club of racist bigotry.

After eight years of the Obama regime, where racial division was encouraged, and the racist “black lives matter” evolved. The rise of socialism evolved from the “occupy wall street” crowd into the violent “antifa” (anti-First Amendment) fascists.  The Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, and Obama crowd that wants income equality at the point of a gun. Resulting in a Sanders supporter that actually went hunting for Republicans, and shot a Republican member of Congress. This was also echoed by Obama’s manufacturing Czar (again, another Russian reference), Ron Bloom, that praised Mao Tse Tung and his belief of power that comes from a barrel of a gun. The Obama regime was laying the groundwork for insurrection and violence, under the guise of leftist anti-fascism.

The Fake News Media never called out this open threat to liberty. Yet, they fake news media, and members of government, are claiming that President Trump didn’t adequately denounce White Supremacy.  Yet, the fascist terror antifa group gets a pass for their violent acts. President Trump denounced all of them, over and over, but it’s just not good enough for the socialist democrat bigots in the democRat party and fake news media. They play the race card.  Ever wonder why the antifa fascist cover their faces? So they cannot be identified by the police. Even though the police have been told to stand-down by the leftist mayors and governors. It seems the mayors and governors in democrats cities and states are welcoming the violence as room for destructive violence.

The fake news media and racist democRats have called President Trump an anti-Semite. Yet his daughter Ivanka is married to a Jew, and she is an orthodox Jew, with children being raised as Jews. How could President Trump be an anti-Semite? The fake news media accuses President Trump of having White Supremacists in his circle of influence. The accusers are known socialist fascists, but the fake news media ignores these pesky little facts. Meanwhile, the voters see this hatred for our President and we are not listening to these talking heads.

 

Not much has changed since the Nazism, but the tactics remain the same. Property destruction, physical assaults, and mob mentality. Only the uniforms change.  President Trump said that both sides are at fault, and they are. There is no difference in the level of fascism by any groups that use violence and intimidation to spread fear. The manufactured outrage over President Trump’s blaming both sides has me wondering if the media and some corrupt politicians favor one fascist group over the other. I suspect it is so, because I don’t see the difference between Nazis, antifa, and other violent fascist groups. I’m astonished by the backlash and unfair condemnation of President Trump by people who claim to be for peaceful demonstrations, but fail to see that both sides were looking for a fight. For that, the President has been called a racist. It’s simply not true and there is a history to prove it.

Character assassination is the method of operation with the left. They create the hysteria and foment the violence. The term “alt-right” never appeared in the lexicon until after Trump’s nomination.  It was created by fascists with the desire to spread fear, loathing, and violence. Now, because President Trump is not a part of the political establishment, not a part of the elitist fake media, and not a part of the Washington cocktail circuit, he’s ostracized by the swamp he campaigned against, and the swamp is fighting back to keep their empire.

How can you have moral clarity when dealing with a immoral political establishment? Congress is morally bankrupt. The media is a cesspool of fake news journalism.  Mitch McConnell (Senate Leader), and Paul Ryan (House Speaker),  promised a full repeal and replacement of Obamacare, but they lied. They might as well be socialist democrats, because they are going the way of the Whig party.  The weak leadership of the republican party that promised to restore a free market healthcare system, failed miserably. I will go as far as deliberately. They lied. They had no intention to fulfill their promises.  Just as Obama lied about the American Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare.  My own party has abandoned me. If they are voted out of office and this nation moves to a socialist government, they will inherent the blame. Rightly so, because elected officials that fail to keep their promises will willingly give up their office to the next scumbag that will promise and not deliver.

 

Now that the fascist leftist democrats are running around removing, and rewriting history.

This is all a part of the goal to destroy this country.

Moral Decay

 

 

 

Internet Censorship

The FCC has voted 2-1 to repeal the onerous Obama era rules to control the internet.  Under the false claim that the internet needs to be fair and equal for everyone. The charge that ISP (Internet Service Providers) were throttling the speed and bandwidth of internet access in favor of customers that were willing to pay for the faster service.  That was never true.

“FCC Chairman Ajit Pai wants the commission repeal the rules that reclassified internet service providers as if they were utilities. He thinks the open internet rules adopted under former President Barack Obama, a Democrat, were unnecessary and harm jobs and investment.”

Essentially, the Obama regime wanted to take control of the internet and make it a public utility.  In effect making the internet like a service controlled by the government. Similar to water, sewer, and electric services, the internet would be controlled by a government panel where access cost and content would be controlled by the government.

However, the internet is a source of innovation and free market development.  That freedom would have been taken away by the government. An innovator would have to meet certain government regulations in order to meet government regulatory approvals. Thus throwing a road-block into developers to improve, develop new technologies, and provide open access to the internet.

The internet is not an essential public utility. People lives would not be irreparably harmed if they didn’t use the internet. The internet is more of a luxury than an essential public service. Electric, water, sewer are essential public services for obvious reasons of health and quality of life.  However, the internet is luxury.

There are people that live off the grid without internet and telephone services, and they survive just fine. My parents couldn’t make heads or tails of the internet, even though they took computer classes at the community college. I remember my father complaining about popup ads and asking why do they do this on the internet. I said it’s like a newspaper, but with ads that popup to get your attention.

People worry that their internet access and costs would be at the mercy of the ISP provider. The beauty of a free market internet is that you are free to choose your ISP provider.  Just like newspapers, you can switch to another publisher, and just like your internet provider, you can switch to another ISP provider.  If you don’t like Comcast, then you can switch to another provider like either Time-Warner, Verizon or some local provider.

Under a “One-Size-Fits-All” net neutrality government run utility, you don’t get a choice in providers. You get what the government approves. The government isn’t effective in controlling commerce, but the government would try to control internet content and that’s a scary thought.

Because Net Neutrality would be government controlled, it also means the government would control the content on the internet.  The internet would be subject to political influences.  The Alt-Left socialists, a.k.a. democrats, want to censor and restrict access to internet content.  Just like when the “Fairness Doctrine” was passed in 1949 to restrict the content on the radio.  Net Neutrality would restrict Free Speech.  The socialist left in America is pushing hard to restrict your First Amendment, and they are not trying to hide it.

The Fairness Doctrine was a policy of the United States Federal Communications Commission (FCC), introduced in 1949, that required the holders of broadcast licenses both to present controversial issues of public importance and to do so in a manner that was — in the Commission’s view — honest, equitable, and balanced.

Thus the name “Net Neutrality”.  The left claims it would make the internet fair and balanced, but in reality it would restrict the content and censor free speech.  The left is good at creating flowery names to impose socialism on Americans.  President Ronald Reagan repealed the Fairness Doctrine in 1987 and that has brought freedom to the radio airwaves. The explosion of Conservative Talk Radio has become very popular.  Just like freedom of the airwaves, freedom of the internet is essential for the proliferation of free expression.

If you don’t like the opinions, then the solution is simple! You change the channel!  Just like newspapers, if you don’t like the content, then you can find another newspaper.  That is the value of a Free Market Capitalist system. The popularity of Conservative Talk Radio has moved to the internet, and the purpose of Net Neutrality is to restrict content as “honest, equitable, and balanced”. Which is socialist code for censorship of free speech.

Here’s an example: Remember “Air America?” Air America was a leftist radio program organized by socialists personalities to counter the popularity of Conservative Talk Radio. It didn’t last very long. Why? Because of the content. It’s wasn’t entertaining. It was mostly hate speech and it quickly turn people off, and the people switched off Air America.  The free market determined the fate of Air America.  If Net Neutrality were enacted, then the government would fund this content to keep it on the air.  Is that a good use of your tax dollars?

Keep the Internet Free From Big Government

 

 

 

Repealing Obamacare, Maybe?

The greatest lie of the century might be about to be repealed. Even if not by law, Obamacare is collapsing in on itself. More and more insurers are pulling out of State’s, and doctors are refusing new patients.  Obama and the democrats are fully responsible for creating this nightmare.  It was designed to fail to usher in a European single payer government run model.  Make no mistake, letting the government make your health decision means you don’t get the care you need.  You get what they decide is best for you, even if it kills you.

I was almost losing hope that this socialist monstrosity known as Obamacare would never be repealed and replaced.  Yet, we still have to get this through the Senate, and several Senate jackasses have threatened to spoil everything to stroke their egos.  We shall soon see if they screw the American people and keep Obamacare in perpetuity.  If that happens, then a great chunk of American freedoms, American Ingenuity and American Innovation goes away for good. Incentive and invention will be replaced with government intervention.

Despite the successful House vote, there were several Republicans that voted against the AHCA, or the healthcare reform act.  The reasons vary, but most were spooked by the Fake News Media that hordes of Americans would lose their healthcare.  News Flash!  Hordes of Americans are already losing their healthcare under Obamacare.  They either have no insurer to insure them, or they cannot afford the premiums and the deductibles.  Obamacare was designed to fail by making people pay for stuff they don’t need.  That’s why it’s unaffordable!

The best part of the bill was the Draconian Obamacare taxes that were abolished. The American Health Care Act (HR 1628) passed by the House today reduces taxes on the American people by over $1 trillion. The bill abolishes the following taxes imposed by Obama and the Democrat party in 2010 as part of Obamacare:

-Abolishes the Obamacare Individual Mandate Tax which hits 8 million Americans each year.

-Abolishes the Obamacare Employer Mandate Tax. Together with repeal of the Individual Mandate Tax repeal this is a $270 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Medicine Cabinet Tax which hits 20 million Americans with Health Savings Accounts and 30 million Americans with Flexible Spending Accounts. This is a $6 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Flexible Spending Account tax on 30 million Americans. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s Chronic Care Tax on 10 million Americans with high out of pocket medical expenses. This is a $126 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s HSA withdrawal tax. This is a $100 million tax cut.

-Abolishes Obamacare’s 10% excise tax on small businesses with indoor tanning services. This is a $600 million tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare health insurance tax. This is a $145 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare 3.8% surtax on investment income. This is a $172 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare medical device tax. This is a $20 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on prescription medicine. This is a $28 billion tax cut.

-Abolishes the Obamacare tax on retiree prescription drug coverage. This is a $2 billion tax cut.

It should be noted that Obama repeatedly said about his signature legislative lie that it would not raise taxes, and it would lower healthcare premiums by $2,500 dollars per family per year.  Instead, it raised rate for the average family to $12,000 a year and made deductibles $6,000 before insurance would even kick in.  Then, to add insult to injury, the audacity of Obama’s ego doubled down and he said, “If you like your Doctor, you can keep your Doctor. If you like your Insurance, you can keep your Insurance. Period!”

The bill doesn’t entirely repeal Obamacare, but it does disable it from doing further damage to the healthcare system and the economy.  It might even start rebuilding the healthcare markets where competition and innovation would return.  Free market incentives would allow choice over a one-size-fits-all government plan.  Thus lowering costs, providing more choice and better coverage.

Over the eight years, the Liar in Chief, tinkered and toyed with Obamacare.  Amending and adding to it, making it more difficult to repeal.  To be fair, the Republicans should have had a repeal and replace plan in place, but they didn’t.  They were to busy being the opposition party that they forgot how to govern.  That will probably cost us the House and Senate and our chances forever to return back to Constitutional order.  If that happens, then prepare for a socialist government and the loss of individual freedoms.  The leftist democrats wet dream of becoming like North Korea will have finally arrived.  President Ronald Reagan’s prediction of a 1,000 years of darkness will have come true.  If that sounds depressing…..

THANK A DEMOCRAT

May Day Is Lei Day

It has nothing to do with neither communism, nor socialism.  It just is a day arriving from April showers to May flowers.  At the end of the week it’s Cinco de Mayo and I will be making Fajitas.  The sweet smell of success and freedom.

There is a romantic obsession with leftists to gravitate towards evil.  They wear Che t-shirts and hammer and sickle symbols, but they don’t know what it means because they have never lived in a communist world.  Even though the events in Cuba and Venezuela are western examples of what communism is, there are other eastern example where the reach of totalitarian rule is even worse.

In Arabic countries, slavery is open an accepted, yet ignored by western countries.  The United Nations, a bastion of leftist filth, approved Saudia Arabia to be included in a panel for women’s rights.  This is a society that forbids women from driving and traveling with out a male escort. There is a dress code for Arabic to be completely covered in a black burqa outfit under penalty of death.  That’s the left’s idea of freedom and equality.

Here in America, the left protests over freedom.  They outright reject freedom.  They embrace the idea of government control over the individual lives.  This slavery was all but eliminated worldwide, but is still practiced in other countries. Maybe it is because leftist don’t see, but feel emotionally.  They are easily convinced of perceived injustices that don’t exist in western culture.  It’s because the socialist society sees individualism as uncontrollable.  The left demonizes individual success as robbery of others, and supports robbing the successful to redistribute profits to those that never earned it.  It’s called social justice.  I call it socialism and evil.
