We must hold the feet of elected Republicans to the fire as if they survive this election cycle and then turn around and slander Trump, the party is dead

Granted, I may not be around to have to worry about their effect on me but everyone else I know, love, and am obligated to protecting most assuredly will

BLOG POST #3,682 AT THE AICP-END

ELECTION DAY 2020 PLUS TWENTY-SIX

We end the week on a somber note…

San Diego, CA 92122, 11-29-2020 Sunday: As you know, I have proclaimed myself a REALIST, I think that to continue hoping the November 3 outcome is going to change when the odds are blowing strong against us that it won’t, is to make one doubly depressed to the point of throwing in the towel and saying it was a good life.   At least my family and I live across the border from Tijuana so if the Democrats maintain the border wall to keep us in, a la the Berlin Wall[i], we will be able to slip through it into Mexico and disappear before they are able to seal it.     

I think everyone knows that the Democrats stole the 2020 Presidential Election.[ii]  There is no doubt about it whatsoever, many Democrats go around with a sly grin on their faces, a gleam in their eyes, a knowing wink, ‘Boy, did we put one over on YOU guys.’  Yeah, we know what you did, the problem is in proving what you did, preventing all such future shenanigans, and making sure that those who won this time around on our side don’t have their wins stolen from them as Democrats did countless California House seats during the 2018 Mid-Term Elections.

Millions of Republicans are willing to pour money into Georgia to help Senators Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue battle two hardcore leftists- Jon Ossoff and Pastor Raphael Warnock, a hateful man indeed- while at the same time, we are forced to hold our noses and cover our mouths in so doing because for all we know- once they win their re-election bids- they may turn around and begin blasting President Donald J. Trump.[iii] 

Based on past examples of how chicken s**t Republicans can be, I MAY BE VOTING GOP but I am never going to register GOP.  I understand the frustration of my colleagues who are lifelong Republicans because all too often, Republican politicians are only too happy (1) NOT to keep their campaign promises and (2) to either work behind the scenes against President Donald J. Trump or to work against him in front of everyone.  It’s akin to spitting on us… 

I mean, what the heck is up with Mitt Romney, Lisa Murkowski, Susan Collins, and some of the other wishy-washy Republicans senators like Richard Burr, Shelley Moore-Capito, and even Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham on occasion.  Talk about being fickle.[iv]

When Donald Trump first became president, Trumpism could have advanced light years ahead of where it now is had the GOP NOT SAID they ‘were willing to work with President Trump’ and actually got off their coolos and worked with President Trump

I get it, some of them thought maybe he truly did ‘collude with Vladimir Putin’ while other puffed-up POS such as deceased POW and Senator John McCain, may he rest in peace, simply did not like the guy because he did not ‘act presidential’ and had ‘slandered’ a Gold Star Family that had first slandered HIM.[v]    

I am going to conclude my second week of the year by returning to a post I wrote one year ago on November 30, 2019.  In that post, here is what I said:

“We are approaching a time in this country where our choice will be clear- do we defend the Constitution against all enemies, both foreign and domestic, or do we cringe along the sidelines, hoping they won’t come for us as they come for our neighbors. 

“We are at a time when we may all have to register or re-register as Democrats as if we are not a Democrat, we might be denied [essential] services, medical services, our social security might get ‘lost,’ who knows?  Imagine going to the doctor and because you are a Republican, Libertarian, or an independent, you might have to wait six months longer for a kidney transplant while a Democrat moves to the head of the line.

“Don’t laugh, in the Information Age and with everything online, a despotic government could very easily erase our records, push us to the back of the line, and do everything else possible to make our lives extremely difficult unless we join “the Party.”” (Muñoz, 30-November-2019)

Amigos, last year when I wrote these words, I had concerns but wrote them half in jest whereas now, IF Joe Biden and Kamala Harris enter the White House on January 20 and after seeing all the things we have had the misfortune of having had to watch this past year, I think it’s highly possible my fears may become reality.  Granted, I may not be around to have to worry about their effect on me but everyone else I know, love, and am obligated to protecting most assuredly will.[vi] 

We must push our Republican leaders to do what must be done to protect the country and its citizens as I fear these people are playing for keeps and this time- if they win- it will be a long time before we are finally able to free ourselves from the socialist shackles.  

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are surrounding themselves with the same angry globalists who want to see America and her people brought down several notches while elevating America-haters, illegal aliens, communists, and racist fascists several levels above us.  And you thought “Uncle Joe” was a sweet, avuncular guy.  Nope, no way. 

More like “Uncle Joe Stalin,” the guy is wholly owned by the Chi-Coms and as I mentioned in Tuesday’s Today in History, don’t be surprised if (1) he has us in a BIG WAR within a year’s time and/or (2) Chinese People’s Liberation Army soldiers are ‘keeping order in our streets’ along with their Black Lives Matter and Antifa allies.[vii]  

God willing, I will see you in six months; if not, someone else will be here in my place.  Adios, God bless all of you, God bless our country, and let’s try to enjoy Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and New Year’s Eve/Day as they could be the last ones we will ever see thanks in part to the Chi-Vi.[viii]

“We must hold the feet of elected Republicans to the fire as if they survive this election cycle and then turn around and slander Trump, the party is dead” by Executive Chef Pedro Muñoz, ACF-CEC

Sunday, November 29, 2020:

FOOTNOTES:


[i] I suspect the wall will remain UP because when a country imposes socialism/communism on its subjects, most people want to flee to freer environs.  People have been willing to flee socialist hellholes like East Germany, Cuba, and Venezuela, even North Korea, even if it means they lose their lives in the process.  It is what it is.  Yes, they will open the doors so more illegal aliens can pour in as Joe Biden’s new DHS secretary pick Anthony Mayorkas has promised to do.

[ii] IF oddsmakers in the UK won’t pay out bets on the 2020 Election until it’s proven to be a fact beyond the shadow of a doubt, then we know there was something wrong.  Do not allow yourselves into believing otherwise no matter how much various news shows tell you, ‘it’s all over.’  It’s not all over; it could be but not yet.

[iii] I understand WHY so many of my friends and colleagues are upset.  President Trump worked hard for almost every Republican and then when many of them survive their challenges such as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, they immediately begin making overtures to the other side like him, Susan Collins, even Lindsey Graham.  I agree with my colleagues who have long pushed for a strong third party to offset the other two and their constant ongoing games.  We need an America First Party and I hope President Donald J. Trump will pull all the Trumpers out of the GOP and form this party.  Either that or buy CNN.  Now that would be something!

[iv] All of these people are scum.  I fully suspect that both Kelly Loeffler and David Purdue will reverse course and spit on Trump IF they survive their run-off races.  I rather don’t think they will because the requests for MAIL-IN BALLOTS in Georgia is off the charts.  Can anyone say, “ELECTION THEFT?” Órale, mis amigos, chingas las pinche Democrats chingada madres!

[v] I think we all remember the Muslim family that blasted Trump back in 2016 at the Democratic National Convention.  They attacked Trump first but the FAKE NEWS MEDIA always turns the tables and makes it seem as though Trump was the one doing the attacking.  The man is a counterpuncher and does a damned good job of it.  I wish other Republicans would do the same.  Maybe the American people would not hate them as much.

[vi] No one ever looks forward to leaving this realm for the next but if I have to go, well, if I can make it to November 2022 and vote in the Mid-Terms, that would be amazing but if I don’t, well, we all must go at some time.  Now might be good.

[vii] I’m going to create a NEW TERM today: Bidenism.  Bidenism means pimping oneself to the highest bidder, in this case to the Chi-Coms for personal wealth while selling out one’s country’s interests.  The American people will come to regret this decision, especially when everything reverts back to where it was before Trump became president with additional painful penalties tacked on to make sure we know we are being PUNISHED for our temerity.

[viii] The fricking Chi-Vi, COVID-19, the Chi-Com Flu, the Pelosi Pox, the Kung Flu, the Xi Jinping Bat Flu, the Wuhan Virus, the Wuhan Virus Crisis, the Chinese Flu, the Chinese Virus Crisis, the 2020 Yellow Fever, the Chi-Com Bat Flu, call it what you want, the Chin created this crap in their biowarfare laboratory and let it loose on the world, all to destroy President Donald J. Trump.  Some of my colleagues have said, “We should nuke the Chi-Coms;” let me add my name to that wish.  NUKE THE CHI-COMS NOW.
