Talking Tough isn’t the Same as Being Tough: My appearence on Laura Ingrahm’s Podcast

It was very disappointing to see Sheriff Jones from Butler County put out his Tweet that ended up in the anti-Trump Washington Post calling for Obama and George W. Bush to come together to stop the party bickering that is currently going on. When I first saw it I thought about saying something to him about it, because what ended up happening was precisely what I knew would happen, the national media would key on it as a top Trump supporter who was reaching back to “traditional” politics for help in solving today’s problems in America between Republicans and Democrats. I’m sure Jones thought he was being cute and that he was trying to show leadership in solving the problem from a public relations standpoint, as his role in government as a sheriff and leader of the Republican party in Butler County, Ohio. But it ended up looking like just another two-faced Trump supporter getting cold feet when the President needed him most, and it was embarrassing. Ironically around the same time that Sheriff Jones was conducting his political insurgency Laura Ingraham’s producer was asking me to be on her podcast to talk about the Covington Catholic issue that involved Nick Sandman and the Indian activist Nathan Phillips. You can hear my comments at the 24-minute mark at the following link.

Essentially the contents of that Laura Ingraham broadcast was to display why the two political sides cannot work together, it was the opposite of what Sheriff Jones was asking for which ended up in The Washington Post. My comments were to state simply, the kids of Covington Catholic went to Washington D.C. to go on a field trip. They bought their MAGA hats and shirts at street venders who frequent the area they were visiting, and the point of the trip was to have fun. It was a free and open market and if other political parties had a message the young people were interested in they might have bought hats and shirts from those as well, but Trump represents something in American politics that is above the line in its thinking and the Democrats want desperately to avoid it, they want to keep the nation in a below the line condition, meaning they want victimization and turmoil for which they can apply government resources to in an indirect way to maintain their power. Trumps’ message of “Make America Great Again” is a powerful message of optimism and leads to above the line thought. Democrats needing to keep the political discussion below the line need to make everything about fairness and racism, not opportunity and growth. That is where the political divide exists and there is no way to negotiate with it.

By listening to Laura’s broadcast, you can hear clearly, she understands the situation. The political left wants to go to war and if they have to ruin the lives of kids like Nick Sandman to do so, they will gladly. That is what we are dealing with. There is no way to make peace with that. The political left had all the dominos set up to topple at any little thing and all it took was the professional activist Nathan Phillips to step up to a group of under aged kids and challenge them with all the plotlines the left had created to engage the targets and start a political dialogue of below the line thinking. When Phillips said in an interview that “these were indigenous lands” he was simply supporting years of progressive statements to apply to the here and now for tactical implementation. The Democrats in this case had set the table and all it took was one of their activists to strike a hit on some unsuspecting Catholic kids from Northern Kentucky. The kids weren’t the target, it was Trump’s border wall, but the political left had no problem exploiting them, or even destroying them to enact their cause.

Sheriff Jones should know better, and I really think he has good intentions. But he doesn’t know the game really. Neither does his WLW buddy Bill Cunningham. Jones has a good relationship with the media. When he says something, they usually run with it. He plays his game safe by making suggestions that look bipartisan and logical. Sure it gets him on WLW. I used to be on WLW all the time too, but the media in Cincinnati decided I was too radical for them. Its been a while for me to appear on a national show like Laura’s. But the truth is that I stayed the course, I am saying the same things now in the same way I said them many years ago when Cunningham and Jones were painting me as a local radical who was instigating trouble instead of building bridges with the other side. So I’ll say it again for them and everyone else, you can’t build a bridge to Hell and expect not to get burned on the other side. Only good-natured Republicans are even willing to do such a thing, liberals are actively looking to take over the world with their ideas. Barack Obama isn’t going to help make peace in the world, especially in America. This is the America he helped create. It is Trump who has the best chance at bringing peace, by cutting all the bridges to Hell.

I like Sheriff Jones, quite a lot actually. And I have listened to Bill Cunningham on and off for years. Not much since 2012, I’ll never get over the way he sided with the Lakota teachers on that issue that cause a tax increase indirectly in West Chester and Liberty Township. But those guys are old and out of touch. Sheriff Jones has great cowboy pictures in his office and his morality ultimately comes from those movies from his youth which I think is great. But these times are not those times. The enemy doesn’t want to make peace or avoid the gunfight in the street to establish moral order. They want to kill conservatives completely and ultimately. They want to destroy talk radio. They want to destroy law and order and they want to eradicate the American family, the Constitution, and all semblance of American lifestyle. They don’t care if they destroy children, adults, men or women, and they don’t care what color someone is. If the conservative who is challenging them is black, or is a woman, they would just as soon destroy that person as anybody. They have no interest in peace, they want to destroy conservativism and those are the facts.

Laura has always been good at what she does but lately she has taken a turn toward the kind of moral stand that I’m talking about. Sheriff Jones might think its cute to be an advocate for peace and bridge building, but that is exactly how Republicans have constantly ended up on the short end of these tactical engagements over all these years. You have to understand the nature of the people you are fighting. In this case Laura gets it, but Sheriff Jones doesn’t. What the media and Democrats in general were willing to do to Nick Sandman show to what extent they are willing to destroy others to win their game. And if that effort isn’t matched with equal force, then one side will continue to win everything while the other continues to lose moral ground inch by inch. Those cowboy pictures on Sheriff Jones wall used to define America. Not any more, that is because the image was stronger than the action. The fight we are in now requires our action to be stronger than our image, and when pressed, we must be willing to do what needs to be done. And that is the moral of this story, which will only have a happy ending if conservatives get with the program and come to terms with the condition of the battle field. Both sides can’t live together, as much as people would like to believe. This is a war and it requires both sides to fight it out for a defined victory. There is no other way at this point.
