California Republicans React to GOP Debate

 My take and almost 99.5% of the polls conducted right after the Republican Debate last night in Las Vegas, the winner; Mr. Donald Trump! Please read below my dear and long time friend Jon Fleischman’s column. – Celeste


California Republicans React to GOP Debate

By Jon Fleischma

The last GOP debate before Super Tuesday is in the can. Co-hosted by CNN and Telemundo, it was viewed by 14.5 million people on Thursday evening. The debate crystallized that this is now essentially a three-person show: Donald Trump, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX), Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL). And things really got hot, as the gloves came off.

It was painfully clear (to me, anyway) that Trump exposed himself as being all temperament and style, and not very much substance. But given the distrust and discontent of much of the GOP primary electorate I’ll be interested to see if Trump’s inability to get into specifics causes him more trouble than his decades of ideological inconsistency.

Here is a roundup of thoughts from various California politicos to whom Breitbart News reached out after the debate was over…

Arnold Steinberg, Republican Pollster and Strategist

Going in, Trump was advantaged: Vicente Fox, former president of Mexico attacked him, and Biden, in Mexico, apologized for Trump. Some of the attacks in the debate on Trump were potent, but will they work this late? The longer voter support for him consolidates, the harder to disabuse Trump voters. Carson was much improved, but CNN cheated him on time.  Kasich did fine and is the only one of this group that Trump, if he were the nominee, could consider as VP.  Rubio probably ruled himself out. Rubio and Cruz did well, Rubio probably better. If the repeated doubts about Trump raised by Rubio and Cruz did not work last night, they won’t work at all.

Sam Sorbo, Actress and Talk Show Host

The debaters have all improved their verbal-combat skills (thank heavens!), and how to handle the moderators (even better!).

  • Trump got testy: “First of all, very few people listen to your radio show.” (After which, Hugh Hewitt fumbled some of his next question.)
  • Rubio took control: “In less than five years, 83% of our entire budget will be made up of social security, medicare, medicaid and the interest on the debt … You cannot balance the budget unless you deal with that 83%.”
  • Cruz took Trump to the mat: “He can’t prosecute the case against Hillary and we can’t risk another four years of these failed Obama policies by nominating someone who loses to Hillary Clinton in November.”

Sadly, we learned (again) that Kasich’s dad was a mailman and Carson doesn’t get to answer too many questions.

Favorite quote (you figure out who): “I beat her, and I beat her badly.”

Diane Harkey, Vice Chairman of the State Board of Equalization

Rubio was a home run, Cruz was very effective and Trump was typical — he repeated himself with little substance.  However entertaining he may be, I think we saw a lack of depth on issues.

Celeste Greg, GOP Activist and Publisher, The Greig Report

I Watched the debate/dogfight with the two Junior senators, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio desperately and ferociously attacking the front-runner, businessman Donald Trump. Mr. Trump held his own. Certainly neither one of the senators can claim the title of Mr. Congeniality. Sen. Rubio, with his boyish look, was funny when he said that if Mr. Trump had not inherited his wealth (actually he borrowed money from his Dad) he would be selling watches in Manhattan. Probably so, but it would be his own label and most likely at Tiffany’s, I Magnin, or Cartier!

I don’t think Sen. Cruz scored any points last night — he was combative, unconvincing, repetitive, and closing the IRS is not going to happen. Dr. Carson once again proved he is a classy gentleman, his hands are magic and they have saved lives.  Gov. Kasich, perhaps the one of the five with the most knowledge and experience in government, was calm, and had very had good answers.

Overall, nothing new about their stances on immigration, ISIS, North Korea, Russia, Iran, IRS. vs. Apple. No losers, but Mr. Trump continued being himself–though more subdued– and stood his ground, stronger, giving him the advantage to go on as the frontrunner to win several states on Super Tuesday.

Shawn Steel, California’s Republican National Committeeman

Not only did Marco land a series of never ending punches, he enjoyed it. The Donald is bruised. It will feel the pain today.

Joel Pollak, Editor-In-Chief, Breitbart California

Cruz was the winner overall. He let Rubio attack Trump while reserving his time for principled answers. He needed to win on home turf and will now do well in Texas.

Rubio landed punches but failed to make a case for himself and was constantly interrupting. He needs to convince voters he is mature enough for the job, and his impatience signals the opposite.

Trump had his worst debate, though not catastrophic. But Trump is the long-term winner because Rubio’s supporters will think he did well by attacking, thereby keeping him in the race and continuing to split the anti-Trump vote with Cruz.

Bruce Bialosky, Founder of the Republican Jewish Coalition of California

Tonight, we finally had a winnowed field that showed that Trump was unprepared on policy issues to be president.  The only thing he could say about fixing Obamacare was the Republican doctrine of at least 15 years of a national health insurance market.  He lied about his taxes. The IRS can only go back three years on an audit, but Trump is supposedly being audited for 4-5 years. If he is being audited every year, there goes his mantra of hiring the best people. (He should call me and I would make sure he never gets audited again.) There is no reason he cannot release his tax returns because of these supposed audits. Kasich and Carson were window dressing.  Rubio decked Trump and won the debate. Trump lost the debate badly.

Tom Hudson, President of the California Republican Assembly

Donald Trump is as phony as Arnold Schwarzenegger!  His petulant name-calling and New York rudeness is already getting tiresome, but the primaries just started. Ben Carson had the best line of the debate: “Will someone please attack me?” Senator Ted Cruz, the CRA-endorsed candidate, stood out as the only candidate who looked presidential and really meant what he said.

Jason Roe, Republican Strategist

How do people take Trump seriously?  I mean, c’mon, this guy is so ahead of his skis, he doesn’t even know what he’s talking about. Rubio put him on his heels repeatedly and even when Trump struck back, Marco pounced on him. Was Carson there?

James Lacy, Publisher, California Political Review

Did tonight’s debate slow Trump’s march to the nomination? No, it didn’t. Though Cruz and Rubio surely landed some punches, Trump, again at ground zero center stage, and battling away, seemed to be able to come back cooly whenever he needed to.  He made good sense on his tax cut plan, spending, and the “Wall”.  His saying he will “not let people die on the streets” will be seen as offering some compassion, not socialism, by most voters. Kasich seemed to benefit from more time than usual in past debates, and Carson, sadly, is just increasingly irrelevant.

Hector Barajas, Republican Consultant and Analyst

Cruz debating Trump as if they’re on Senate floor = losing. Rubio’s street fighting = winning. Rubio comes out swinging from the start and Trump fantasizes that Hispanics love him.

Reed Galen, GOP Strategist

This debate was a sh*t show. Rubio did what he needed to do but not sure it’s enough to change the dynamic before Tuesday. Carson should take his fruit salad and go home.


Charles Krauthammer on the Clintons

A very interesting Op-Ed from Charles Krauthammer, exposing The Clinton Foundation and its founders/officers; the Clintons. A must to read, and to share….


The Clinton Foundation is “organized crime” at its finest, and we are  financing it. Here is a good, concise summary of how the Clinton Foundation works as a tax free international money laundering scheme. It may
eventually prove to be the largest political criminal enterprise in U.S. history.
This is a textbook case on how you hide foreign money sent to you and repackage it to be used for your own purposes. All tax free. Here’s how it works:

  1. You create a separate foreign “charity.” In this case one in Canada.
  2. Foreign oligarchs and governments, then donate to this Canadian charity. In this case, over 1,000 did — contributing mega millions. I’m sure they did this out of the goodness of their hearts, and expected nothing in
    return. (Imagine Putin’s buddies waking up one morning and just deciding to send untold millions to a Canadian charity).
  3. The Canadian charity then bundles these separate donations and makes a massive donation to the Clinton Foundation.
  4. The Clinton Foundation and the cooperating Canadian charity claim Canadian law prohibits the identification of individual donors.
  5. The Clinton Foundation then “spends” some of this money for legitimate good works programs. Unfortunately, experts believe this is on the order of 10%. Much of the balance goes to enrich the Clinton’s, pay salaries.  To untold numbers of hangers on, and fund lavish travel, etc. Again, virtually
    all tax free, which means you and I are subsidizing it.
  6. The Clinton Foundation, with access to the world’s best accountants, somehow fails to report much of this on their tax filings. They discover these “clerical errors” and begin the process of re-filing 5 years of tax
  7. Net result — foreign money, much of it from other countries, goes into the Clinton’s pockets tax free and untraceable back to the original donor.  This is the textbook definition of money laundering.
    Oh, by the way, the Canadian “charity” includes as a principal one Frank Giustra. Google him. He is the guy who was central to the formation of Uranium One, the Canadian company that somehow acquired massive U.S. uranium interests and then sold them to an organization controlled by Russia. This transaction required U.S. State Department approval, and guess who was Secretary of State when the approval was granted.  As an aside, imagine how former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell feels. That poor schlep is in jail because he and his wife took $165,000 in gifts and loans for doing minor favors for a guy promoting a vitamin company. Not legal but not exactly putting U.S. security risk.

Sarcasm aside, if you’re still not persuaded this was a cleverly structured way to get unidentified foreign money to the Clinton’s, ask yourself this:

  • Why did these foreign interests funnel money through a Canadian charity?
  • Why not donate directly to the Clinton Foundation? Better yet, why not donate money directly to the people, organizations and countries in need?

This is the essence of money laundering and influence peddling. Now you know why Hillary’s destruction of 30,000 e-mails was a risk she was willing to take.
Bill and Hillary are devious, unprincipled, dishonest and criminal, and they are Slick! Warning: They could be back in the White House in January 2017. Don’t let it happen. Remember, most people are not well informed. You must inform and educate them.    Warm Wishes and May God Bless America

Thanksgiving: America’s History

Last year my good friend Dr, Karen Kenney (Founder and Director of the San Fernando Valley Tea Party Patriots, which I’m proud to be a member) by special invitation organized again at a private lovely residence in Encino and hosted by my friend Shannon Edwards (homeowner, with a big theater screen) a superb evening “Patriot Film Night,” Kirk Cameron’s “Monumental , In Search of America’s beginnings and National Treasures” a 1:30 hr documentary-style film, with discussion, snacks, refreshments and friendly smart people. So if this message is redundant to some, still worth repeating again!

What made it so great was the candor and easy explanation of events that took place in building our country.
It’s about Kirk Cameron traveling to Europe and the U.S.A. to learn and discover the true America’s natural treasure, its people, places and the principles that made our nation the best, most prosperous, given and exceptional, plus the struggles and arrival to Plymouth Rock in Massachusetts by the English Pilgrims in seek of religious freedom and giving thanks for the newfound land. (This is a must see, you can go to to purchase it).

1789 Thanksgiving Proclamation
“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humble to implore His protection and favor; and Whereas both Houses of Congress have, by join committee, requested me to “recommend to the people of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness:”
George-Washington” Now, therefore, I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country previous to their becoming a nation……. — George Washington (October 3, 1789)
In October of 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued a proclamation calling on the people to observe the last Thursday in November “as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelled in the Heavens.”
In 1941 congress voted to established Thanksgiving as a national Holiday.
In his first Thanksgiving proclamation, President Ronald Reagan wrote: “As we celebrate Thanksgiving…we should ask what we can do as individuals to demonstrate our gratitude to God for all he has done. Such reflection can only add to the significance of this precious day of remembrance.  Let us recommit ourselves to that devotion to God and family that has played such an important role ion making this a great Nation, and which will be needed as a source of strength if we are to remain a great people.”

Thanksgiving-post-1024x640This THANKSGIVING DAY, again based on our Judeo-Christian values, we give thanks and pray to our Creator for all his blessings, faithfulness,  all the abundance he has given us, as we gather with our families and friends to praise him and reflect on how blessed we are and will remember at the dinner table those loved ones who have left us and have gone to heaven to be with the Lord, but we’ll also remember our members of the Armed Forces (Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Navy and Marines) who are far away and in harm’s way, who will not be having dinner with their families, we pray and give thanks to the Lord for their safety. Also  our good men and women in law enforcement, and firefighters. We also ask for his blessings for those who are less fortunate than we are, for the homeless, for the unemployed, and for the frail and sick.“Enter His gates with Thanksgiving, and His courts with praise. 

Give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the LORD is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continue through all generations.” — Psalm 100:4-5

Warmest wishes for a  peaceful, fruitful and happy Thanksgiving Day, and God’s blessings to all of you and your families.

If it walks like a Duck

Sent to us by one of our subscribers.




We’re sure you have heard the outrage expressed by the press and Democrats over the Donald’s failure to espouse Obama’s Christianity and correct a questioner at one of Trump’s events who states that Obama is a Muslim.  Now we have  Hillary chastising Trump for same, trying to score political points.  We thought you might find the following instructive.

Keep this old adage in mind:  If you walk like a duck and quack like a duck there is a very high

probability that you’re a duck!

Mike Gallagher. The 8th most recognized talk radio personality in the country, is heard by over 2.25 million listeners weekly.

He compiled and wrote the following  essay entitles, “Obama: It was You.”


President Obama:

This is why you didn’t go to France to show solidarity against the Muslim terrorist:

It was you who spoke these words at an Islamic dinner –“I am one of you.”

It was you who on ABC News referenced – “My Muslim faith.”

It was you who gave $100 million in U.S. taxpayer funds to re-build foreign mosques.

It was you who wrote that in the event of a conflict “I will stand with the Muslims.”

It was you who assured the Egyptian Foreign Minister that –“I am a Muslim.”

It was you who bowed in submission before the Saudi King.

It was you who sat for 20 years in a Liberation Theology Church condemning Christianity

and professing Marxism.

It was you who exempted Muslims from penalties under Obamacare that the rest of us have to pay.

It was you who purposefully omitted –“endowed by our Creator” –from your recitation of the

The Declaration of Independence.

It was you who mocked the Bible and Jesus Christ’s Sermon On The Mount while repeatedly

Referring to the ‘Holy Qur’an.

It was you who traveled the Islamic world denigrating the United States Of America

It was you who instantly threw the support of your administration behind the building of the

Ground Zero Victory mosque overlooking the hallowed crater of the World Trade Center

It was you who refused to attend the National Prayer Breakfast, but hastened to host and

Islamic prayer breakfast at the White House.

It was you who ordered Georgetown Univ. and Notre Dame to shroud all vestiges of Jesus Christ

BEFORE you would agree to go there to speak, but in contrast, you have NEVER requested the

mosques you have visited to adjust their decor.

It was you who appointed anti-Christian fanatics to you Czar corps.

It was you who appointed rabid Islamist to Homeland Security.

It was you who said that NASA’s “foremost mission” was an outreach to Muslim communities.

It was you who as an Illinois Senator was the ONLY individual who would speak in favor of infanticide.

It was you who were the first President not to give a Christmas Greeting from the White House, and

went so far as to hang photos of Chairman Mao on the WH tree.

It was you who curtailed the military tribunals of all Islamic terrorist.

It was you who refused to condemn the Ft. Hood killer as an Islamic terrorist.

It was you who has refused to speak-out concerning the horrific executions of women

throughout the Muslim culture, but yet, have submitted Arizona to the UN for investigation of

hypothetical human-rights abuses.

It was you who when queried in India refused to acknowledge the true extent of radical global

Jihadists, and instead profusely praised Islam in a country that is 82% Hindu and the victim of

numerous Islamic terrorists assaults.

It was you who funneled $900 Million in U.D. taxpayer dollars to Hamas.

It was you who ordered the USPS to honor the MUSLIM holiday with a new commemorative stamp.

It was you who directed our UK Embassy to conduct outreach to help “empower” the British Muslim



It was you who funded mandatory Arabic language and culture studies in Grammar schools across

our country.


It was you who follows the Muslim custom of not wearing any form of jewelry during Ramadan.

It was you who departs for Hawaii over the  Christmas season so as to avoid past criticism of NOT

participating in seasonal WH religious events.

It was you who was Uncharacteristically quick to join the chorus of the Muslim Brotherhood to depose

Egypt’s Hosni Mubarack, formerly America’s strongest ally in North Africa; but, remain muted in your

response to the Brotherhood led slaughter of Egyptian Christians.

It was you who appointed your chief adviser, Valerie Jarrett, an Iranian, who is a member of the

Muslim Sisterhood, an off-shoot of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It was you who said this country is not a Christian nation.


This is a great true story… a little bit long, but worth the reading!

original_ApplesGIRL WITH THE APPLES!

Please read this interesting story that is about to be made into a movie.

The girl with the apples.  A true story of survival from the Holocaust and the mysterious ways of God that drew people together here in America after their lives have touched in the dark days of Hitler.

August 1942, Piotrkow, Poland.  The sky was gloomy that morning as we waited anxiously.

All the men, women and children of Piotrkow’s Jewish ghetto had been herded into a square.

Word had gotten around that we were being moved.  My father had only recently died from

Typhus, which had run rampant through the crowded ghetto.  My greatest fear was that our

Family would be separated.

‘Whatever you do, ‘Isidore, my eldest brother, whispered to me, ‘don’t tell them your age.

Say you’re sixteen…. ‘I was tall for a boy of 11, so I could pull it off.  That way I might be

deemed as a worker.  An SS man approached me, boots clicking against the cobblestones.

He looked me up and down, and then he asked my age.  ‘Sixteen,” I said.  He directed me to

The left, where my three brothers and other healthy young men already stood.

My mother was motioned to the right with the other women, children, sick and elderly people.

I whispered to Isidore, “Why?’ He didn’t answer.  I ran to Mama’s side and said I wanted to

stay with her, “No, “she said sternly. ‘Get away, don’t be a nuisance, go with your brothers.’

She has never spoken so harshly before.  But I understood: She was protecting me.  She love

Me so much that, just this once, she pretended not to.  It was the last I ever saw of her.


My brothers and I were transported in a cattle car to Germany.  We arrived at the Buchenwald

concentration camp one night later and were led into a crowded barrack.  The next day, we

were issued uniforms and identification numbers.

‘Don’t call me Herman anymore” I said to my brothers. ‘Call me 94983,” I was out to work in the

Camp’s crematorium, loading the dead unto a hand-cranked elevator, I too, felt dead.

Hardened had become a number.

Soon, my brothers and I were sent to Schlieben, one of Buchenwald’s sub-camps near Berlin.

One morning I thought I heard my mother’s voice. ‘Son, ‘she said softly but clearly, I’m going

to send you an angel.” Then I woke up, just a dream.  A beautiful dream.

But in this place there could be no angels. There was only work, and hunger, and fear.

A couple of days later, I was walking around the camp, around the barracks, near the barbed

wire fence where the guards could not easily see.  I was alone.


On the other side of the fence, I spotted someone; a little girl with light, almost luminous curls.

She was half-hidden behind a birch tree, I glanced around to make sure no one saw me, I called

to her softly in German. “Do you have something to eat? She didn’t understand.  I inched closer

to the fence and repeated the question in Polish, She stepped forward, I was thin and gaunt, with

with rags wrapped around my feet, but the girl looked unafraid.  In her eyes, I saw life.

She pulled an apple from her woolen jacket and threw it over the fence.  I grabbed the fruit and,

as I stared to run away, I heard her say faintly, ‘Ill see you tomorrow.’

I returned to the same spot by the fence at the same time every day.  She was always there with

something for me to eat – a hunk of bread or, better yet, an apple.  We didn’t dare speak or

linger.  To be caught would mean death for us both.

I didn’t know anything about her, just a kind farm girl, except that she understood Polish.

What was her name? Why was she risking her life for me?

Hope was in such short supply, and this girl on the other side of the fence gave me some, as

Nourishing it its way as the bread and apples.

Nearly seven months later, my brothers and I were crammed into a coal car and shipped to

Theresienstadt camp in Czechoslovakia. ‘Don’t return, ‘I told the girl that day. ‘We’re leaving.’

I turned toward the barracks and didn’t look back, didn’t even say good-bye to the little girl

whose name I’d never learned, the girl with the apples.  We were in Theresienstadt for three


The war was winding down and Allied forces were closing in, yet my fate seemed sealed.


On May 10, 1945, I was scheduled to die in the gas chamber at 10:00 AM, in the quiet of dawn

I tried to prepare myself.  So many times death seemed ready to claim me, but somehow I’d

survived.  Now, it was over.

I thought of my parents.  At least I thought, we may be reunited.  But at 8:00 AM, there was a

commotion.  I heard shouts, and saw people running every which way through camp.  I caught

up with my brothers.

Russian troops had liberated the camp!  The gated swung open, everyone was running, so I did

Too, amazingly, all of my brothers had survived.  I’m not sure how, but I knew that the girl with

the apples had been the key to my survival.


In a place where evil seemed triumphant, one person’s goodness had saved my life, had given me

hope in a place where there was none.  My mother had promised to send me an angel, and the

had come.


Eventually I made my way to England where I was sponsored by a Jewish charity, put up in a

hostel with other boys who had survived the Holocaust and trained in electronics.  Then came to

America, where my brother Sam had already moved.

I served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War, and returned to New York City after two years.


By August 1957 I’d opened my own electronics repair shop I was staring to settle in.  One day,

my friend Sid who I knew from England called me. ‘I’ve got a date. She’s got a Polish friend, let’s

double date.’  A blind date? Nah, that wasn’t for me, but Sid kept pestering me, and a few days

later we headed up to the Bronx to pick up his date and her friend Roma.

I had to admit, for a blind date this wasn’t so bad.  Roma was a nurse at a Bronx hospital.

She was kind and smart.  Beautiful, too, with swirling brown curls and green, almond-shaped

eyes that sparkled with life.  The four of us drove out to Coney Island. Roma was easy to talk to,

easy to be with.  Turned out she was wary of a blind dates too!

We were just doing our friends a favor.  We took a stroll on the boardwalk, enjoying the salty

Atlantic breeze, and then had dinner by the shore. I couldn’t remember having a better time.


We piled back into Sid’s car, Roma and I sharing the backseat.  As European Jews who had

survived the war, we were aware that much had been left unsaid between us.  She broached the

subject. ‘Where were you, ‘she asked softly, during the world?

‘The camps.‘ I said.  The terrible memories still vivid, the irreparable loss, I had tried to forget.

But you can never forget.


She nodded. ‘My family was hiding on a farm in Germany, not far from Berlin ‘ she told me,

‘My father knew a priest, and he got us Aryan papers.’  I imagined how she must have suffered

too, fear, a constant companion, and yet here we were both survivors, in a new world.


‘There was a camp next to the farm,’ Roma continued, I saw a boy and I would throw him apples

every day.’  What an amazing coincidence that she had helped some other boy.

“What did he look like? I asked.  ‘He was tall, skinny, and hungry, I must have seem him every

day for six months.’  My heart was racing. I couldn’t believe it.  This couldn’t be.’

Did he tell you one day not to come back because he was leaving Schlieben?’ Roma looked at me

in amazement.  ‘Yes!’ ‘That was me!’

I was ready to burst with joy and awe, flooded with emotions. I couldn’t believe it!  My Angel.

I’m not letting you go.’ I said to Roma. And in the back of the car on that blind date, I proposed

to her.  I didn’t want to wait.  ‘You’re crazy!’ she said.  But she invited me to meet her parents for

Shabbat dinner the following week.


There was so much I looked forward to learning about Roma, but the most important things

I always knew; her steadfastness, her goodness.  For many months, in the worst of circumstances,

She had come to the fence and given me hope.  Now that I’d found her again, I could never let

her go.

That day, she said yes.  And I kept my word.  After nearly 50 years of marriage, two children and

Three grandchildren, I have never let her go.

Sam Houston; The only man to serve as Governor of two states!

At the GreigReport, We not only provide insight politics, issues of domestic, national policy, taxation, social issues,
about candidates, and other family important items, but historical and educational issues, such as the one below, 
which was sent to us by our good friend Shawn Steel, California Republican Party’s National Committeeman.  

Sam Houston;  The only man to serve as Governor of two states!
Courtesy of Shawn Steel – CRP’ National Committeeman age 16, after his father died, Sam Houston ran off to live with the Cherokee Indians on the Tennessee River.
He was adopted by Chief Oolooteka and given the name “Raven.”

Three years later, Sam Houston returned to Knox County, Tennessee, and opened a one-room schoolhouse – the first school built in the State.

He joined the army and fought in the War of 1812.

After the Massacre of Fort Mims, where Red Stick Creek Indians, supplied with British guns, scalped over 500 men, women and children, the U.S. government sent in General Andrew Jackson.

Sam Houston fought under General Jackson against the Red Sticks at the Battle of Horseshoe Bend on March 27, 1814.

An arrow struck Sam Houston near his groin. He had the arrow removed, was bandaged, then returned to the fight.

He was then struck again with bullets in his shoulder and arm.

General Andrew Jackson took notice of Sam Houston and began mentoring him.

In 1818, Sam Houston, wearing Indian dress, led a delegation of Cherokee to Washington, D.C., to meet with President James Monroe.

Sam Houston studied law under Judge James Trimble, passed the bar, and opened up a legal practice in Lebanon, Tennessee.

Houston was appointed the local prosecutor and was given a command in the state militia.

Sam Houston
 was elected to Congress in 1823, and became Governor of Tennessee in 1827.

After a failed marriage, Sam Houston resigned and moved to the Arkansas Territory where he lived among the Cherokee Tribe.

Understanding that Cherokee needed to be a “nation” in order for the U.S. government to honor a treaty, Sam Houston helped the Cherokee compose a constitution.

On December 27, 1831, Houston was a passenger on a steamboat where he met French writer Alexis de Tocqueville who was traveling throughout the United States.

While visiting Washington, DC, a politician slandered Houston’s character resulting in an altercation and trial.

Francis Scott Key was Houston’s lawyer, and future President James K. Polk interceded for him, resulting in Houston getting off with a light reprimand and a fine of $500.

Rather than pay, Houston left town and traveled out west.

He married a Cherokee wife, but she refused to follow him to the Mexican Territory of Tejas.

In 1833, in Nacogdoches, Sam Houston was baptized into the Catholic faith, which was a requirement to own property in the Mexican Territory.

On his 43rd birthday, March 2, 1836, Sam Houston signed the Texas Declaration of Independence, which stated:

“When a government has ceased to protect the lives, liberty, and property of the people… and…becomes an instrument in the hands of evil rulers for their oppression…

it is a…sacred obligation to their posterity to abolish such government, and create another in its stead.”

The Texas Declaration ended:

“Conscious of the rectitude of our intentions, we fearlessly and confidently commit the issue to the decision of the Supreme Arbiter of the Destinies of Nations.”


Sam Houston was made Commander-in-Chief to fight Santa Anna, culminating in the Battle of San Jacinto, April 21, 1836.

One report was that Sam Houston had three horses shot from under him.

James Monroe Hill wrote in a letter, October 20, 1895 (McArdle Notebooks-The Battle of San Jacinto, Texas State Library and Archives):

“As I passed down the flat lands I saw General Houston on a different horse. I afterward heard that it was the third one, two having been killed under him. I did not know then that he himself was wounded.”

A bullet had shattered Sam Houston’s ankle, yet he continued the fierce attack.

In the 18 minute battle, 900 Texans had defeated 1500 Mexicans.”

Later that year, September 4, 1836, President Andrew Jackson wrote to General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna:

“Sir: I have the honor to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of the 4th day of July last, which had been forwarded to me by General Samuel Houston

If…Mexico should signify her willingness to avail herself of our good offices in bringing about the desirable result you have described, nothing could give me more pleasure than to devote my best services to it.

To be instrumental in terminating the evils of civil war and in substituting in their stead the blessings of peace is a divine privilege…

Your letter, and that of General Samuel Houston, commander in chief of the Texan army, will be made the basis of an early interview with the Mexican minister at Washington…

In the meantime I hope Mexico and Texas, feeling that war is the greatest of calamities, will pause before another campaign is undertaken and can add to the number of those scenes of bloodshed which have already marked the progress of their contest and have given so much pain to their Christian friends throughout the world.”

On OCTOBER 22, 1836, General Sam Houston was sworn in as the first President of the Republic of Texas.

In 1846, Sam Houston became the first U.S. Senator from Texas, and in 1859 he was elected Governor.

Sam Houston was the only person to have been “elected” the governor of two different States.

After receiving news that his Cherokee wife had died, Sam Houston married again in 1847.

In 1840, at the age of 47, Sam Houston married 21-year-old Margaret Moffette Lea of Alabama, and together they had eight children.

With the help of Baptist pastor George Washington Baines, Sr., great-grandfather of Lyndon Baines Johnson, Sam Houston’s wife Margaret convinced him to be baptized as a Baptist in Little Rocky Creek on November 19, 1854.

Governor Sam Houston wanted to keep Texas out of the Civil War, stating:

“I love Texas too well to bring civil strife and bloodshed upon her. To avert this calamity, I shall make no endeavor to maintain my authority as Chief Executive of this State, except by the peaceful exercise of my functions…”

When he refused to join the Confederacy, he was removed from office on March 16, 1861.

President Lincoln, through Union Col. Frederick W. Lander, offered Sam Houston 50,000 Union troops to prevent Texas from joining the Confederacy. Houston refused, stating: “Allow me to most respectfully decline any such assistance of the United States Government.”

When asked why he did not join the Confederacy, Houston told a crowd outside his Galveston hotel window, April 19, 1861:

“Let me tell you what is coming. After the sacrifice of countless millions of treasure and hundreds of thousands of lives, you may win Southern independence if God be not against you, but I doubt it.

I tell you that, while I believe with you in the doctrine of states rights, the North is determined to preserve this Union. They are not a fiery, impulsive people as you are, for they live in colder climates. But when they begin to move in a given direction, they move with the steady momentum and perseverance of a mighty avalanche; and what I fear is, they will overwhelm the South.”

The city of Houston, Texas, the 4th largest city in the United States, is named for Sam Houston.

In Houston, Texas, August 17, 1992, Ronald Reagan stated at the Republican National Convention:
“Whether we come from poverty or wealth; whether we are Afro-American or Irish-American; Christian or Jewish, from big cities or small towns, we are all equal in the eyes of God
May all of you as Americans never forget your heroic origins, never fail to seek divine guidance, and never lose your natural, God-given optimism…
My fellow Americans…God bless each and every one of you, and God bless this country we love.”

The Clinton White House

Have you forgotten the Clinton White House?
By: Don Faber (former Hospital Administrator Executive & USMC Patriot)

When Bill Clinton was president, he allowed Hillary to assume authority over a health care reform.  Even after threats and intimidation, she couldn’t even get a vote in a democratic controlled congress.  This fiasco cost the American taxpayers about $13 million in cost for studies, promotion, and other efforts.

Then President Clinton gave Hillary authority over selecting a female attorney general.  Her first two selections were Zoe Baird and Kimba Wood – both were forced to withdraw their names from consideration.  Next she chose Janet Reno – husband Bill described her selection as “my worst mistake.”  Some may not remember that Reno made the decision to gas David Koresh and the Branch Davidian religious sect in Waco, Texas resulting in dozens of deaths of women and children.

Husband Bill allowed Hillary to make recommendations for the head of the Civil Rights Commission.  Lani Guanier was her selection.  When a little probing led to the discovered of Ms. Guanier’s radical views, her name had to be withdrawn from consideration.

Apparently a slow learner, husband Bill allowed Hillary to make some more recommendations.  She chose former law partners Web Hubbel for the Justice Department, Vince Foster for the White House staff, and William Kennedy for the Treasury Department.  Her selections went well: Hubbel went to prison, Foster (presumably) committed suicide, and Kennedy was forced to resign.

Many younger votes will have no knowledge of “Travelgate.”  Hillary wanted to award unfettered travel contracts to Clinton friend Harry Thompson – and the White House Travel Office refused to comply.  She managed to have them reported to the FBI and fired.  This ruined their reputations, cost them their jobs, and caused a thirty-six month investigation. Only one employee, Billy Dale was charged with a crime, and that of the enormous crime of mixing personal and White House funds. A jury acquitted him of any crime in less than two hours.

Still not convinced of her ineptness, Hillary was allowed to recommend a close Clinton friend, Craig Livingstone, for the position of Director of White House security. When Livingstone was investigated for the improper access of about 900 FBI files of Clinton enemies (Filegate) and the widespread use of drugs by White House staff, suddenly Hillary and the president denied even knowing Livingstone, and of course, denied knowledge of drug use in the White House.  Following this debacle, the FBI closed its White House Liaison Office after more than thirty years of service to seven presidents.

Next, when women started coming forward with allegations of sexual harassment and rape by Bill Clinton, Hillary was put in charge of the “bimbo eruption” and scandal defense.  Some of her more notable decisions in the debacle was:

She urged her husband not to settle the Paula Jones lawsuit.  After the Starr investigation they settled with Ms. Jones.

She refused to release the Whitewater documents, which led to the appointment of Ken Starr as Special Prosecutor. After $80 million dollars of taxpayer money was spent, Starr’s investigation led to Monica Lewinsky, which led to Bill lying about and later admitting his affairs.

Hillary’s devious game plan resulted in Bill losing his license to practice law for ‘lying under oath’ to a grand jury and then his subsequent impeachment by the House of Representatives.

Hillary avoided indictment for perjury and obstruction of justice during the Starr investigation by repeating, “I do not recall,” “I have no recollection,” and “I don’t know” a total of 56 times while under oath.

After leaving the White House, Hillary was forced to return an estimated $200,000 in White House furniture, china, and artwork that she had stolen.

What a swell party – ready for another four or eight year of this type low-life mess?

Now we are exposed to the destruction of possibly incriminating emails while Hillary was Secretary of State and the “pay to play” schemes of the Clinton Foundation – we have no idea what shoe will fall next.  But to her loyal fans – “what difference does it make?”

Electing Hillary Clinton president would be like granting Satan absolution and giving him the keys to heaven!

Please pass this on.  Our way of life may depend on it.

France’s Top Weatherman Sparks Storm Over Climate Change

So refreshing to see somebody from a liberal country, having the guts to expose a myth and a lie about global warming!

France’s top weatherman sparks storm over book questioning climate change

Philippe Verdier, weather chief at France Télévisions, the country’s state broadcaster, reportedly sent on “forced holiday” for releasing book accusing top climatologists of “taking the world hostage”

Philippe Verdier's outspoken views reportedly led France 2 to send him on a 'forced holiday'

Every night, France’s chief weatherman has told the nation how much wind, sun or rain they can expect the following day.
Now Philippe Verdier, a household name for his nightly forecasts on France 2, has been taken off air after a more controversial announcement – criticising the world’s top climate change experts.
Mr Verdier claims in the book Climat Investigation (Climate Investigation) that leading climatologists and political leaders have “taken the world hostage” with misleading data.
In a promotional video, Mr Verdier said: “Every night I address five million French people to talk to you about the wind, the clouds and the sun. And yet there is something important, very important that I haven’t been able to tell you, because it’s neither the time nor the place to do so.”
He added: “We are hostage to a planetary scandal over climate change – a war machine whose aim is to keep us in fear.”
His outspoken views led France 2 to take him off the air starting this Monday. “I received a letter telling me not to come. I’m in shock,” he told RTL radio. “This is a direct extension of what I say in my book, namely that any contrary views must be eliminated.”
The book has been released at a particularly sensitive moment as Paris is due to host a crucial UN climate change conference in December.
According to Mr Verdier, top climate scientists, who often rely on state funding, have been “manipulated and politicised”.
He specifically challenges the work of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, or IPCC, saying they “blatantly erased” data that went against their overall conclusions, and casts doubt on the accuracy of their climate models.
The IPCC has said that temperatures could rise by up to 4.8°C if no action is taken to reduce carbon emissions.
Mr Verdier writes: “We are undoubtedly on a plateau in terms of warming and the cyclical variability of the climate doesn’t not allow us to envisage if the natural rhythm will tomorrow lead us towards a fall, a stagnation or a rise (in temperature).”
The 330-page book also controversially contains a chapter on the “positive results” of climate change in France, one of the countries predicted to be the least affected by rising temperatures. “It’s politically incorrect and taboo to vaunt the merits of climate change because there are some,” he writes, citing warmer weather attracting tourists, lower death rates and electricity bills in mild winters, and better wine and champagne vintages.
Asked whether he had permission from his employer to release the book, he said: “I don’t think management liked it, let’s be honest.”
“I put myself via this investigation on the path of COP 21, which is a bulldozer, and we can see the results.”
The book was criticised by French newspaper Le Monde as full of “errors”. “The models used to predict the average rise in temperatures on the surface of the globe have proved to be rather reliable, with the gap between observations and predictions quite small,” it countered.
Mr Verdier told France 5: “Making these revelations in the book, which I absolutely have the right to do, can pose problems for my employer given that the government (which funds France 2) is organising COP [the climate change conference]. In fact as soon as you a slightly different discourse on this subject, you are branded a climate sceptic.”
He said he decided to write the book in June 2014 when Laurent Fabius, the French foreign minister, summoned the country’s main weather presenters and urged them to mention “climate chaos” in their forecasts.
“I was horrified by this discourse,” Mr Verdier told Les Inrockuptibles magazine. Eight days later, Mr Fabius appeared on the front cover of a magazine posing as a weatherman above the headline: “500 days to save the planet.”
Mr Verdier said: “If a minister decides he is Mr Weatherman, then Mr Weatherman can also express himself on the subject in a lucid manner.
“What’s shameful is this pressure placed on us to say that if we don’t hurry, it’ll be the apocalypse,” he added, saying that “climate diplomacy” means leaders are seeking to force changes to suit their own political timetables.
According to L’Express magazine, unions at France Television called for Mr Verdier to be fired, but that Delphine Ernotte, the broadcaster’s chief executive, initially said he should be allowed to stay “in the name of freedom of expression”.
