Your Colleges Are Turning Out Liberals

You send your child to college and find out that their minds have been influenced by their Liberal professors.  They come home to you converted . . . until they go out in the real world.

After they are 40 years of age, they start realizing that what they learned was pure bunk  Unfortunately, it takes about 20 years to reverse the damage caused by their slanted education.

Your precious progeny start examining what they learned against what really is.

Unfortunately, many never make this transition and that is why the government is planting the colleges with Liberals.

 Reflecting on a Productive Year

 2015 has ended, and I am thankful for the many blessings and opportunities we had this last year to improve our great state. I am grateful for my constituents’ trust and support and for my colleagues’ hard work and commitment to providing families and small businesses with hundreds of millions of dollars in tax relief, reforming the state’s chronically troubled Medicaid program, and to strengthening public education, transportation, and public safety.

In 2015, Senate Republicans:

•  Adopted a balanced, fiscally responsible state budget that invests in core services, strengthens public education, shores up savings reserves and grows North Carolina’s economy. The Senate cut hundreds of millions of dollars from earlier spending proposals.

•  Reduced the tax burden on North Carolina families and small businesses by close to $400 million over the next two years.

•  Improved the state’s climate for job growth by lowering corporate income tax rates, moving to calculate corporate income tax on the basis of a single sales factor, and expanding tools to recruit new businesses, including large companies like automobile and aerospace manufacturers.

•  Increased funding for public education by more than $530 million in 2016 alone, increased early-career teacher pay, and continued major education reforms to reduce class sizes and ensure students receive the tools they need to succeed.

•  Reformed the state’s chronically troubled Medicaid program to save tax dollars, achieve greater budget sustainability, and incentivize delivering high-quality care to keep North Carolinians healthy.

•  Passed sweeping changes to the state’s burdensome regulatory environment that cut red tape that chokes off economic growth.

•  Protected the first amendment rights and jobs of magistrates and registers of

deeds’ employees whose participation in same-sex marriage ceremonies violates their core religious beliefs.

•  Prohibited ‘sanctuary cities’ in North Carolina to ensure localities enforce federal laws against illegal immigration.

I look forward to a positive and productive 2016 and wish you and your family a happy and healthy new year!

Supreme Court Again Upholds Congressional, Legislative Maps

On December 18th, the North Carolina Supreme Court affirmed its earlier ruling that the congressional and legislative redistricting maps enacted by the General Assembly in 2011 are constitutional.

Since the maps were put in place, far-left special interest groups have spent years filing identical lawsuits and claiming otherwise before a three-judge panel and twice before the state Supreme Court. But even in the face of this onslaught, first the Obama Justice Department and then every court that has ruled has upheld North Carolina’s redistricting plans.

We are pleased with the court’s decision, which validates these maps for the fourth time, once again making clear that the General Assembly protected the rights of voters across the state and established voting boundaries that are fair and legal.

As always, please feel free to contact my office at any time with your concerns or questions.

Thank you for the opportunity to continue representing you in the North Carolina Senate.

Best regards,

Senator Ralph Hise

47th District

Ten Myths About Guns

Here is a quick read about myths that have been promulgated by our illustrious president, Obama.

Most people don’t realize how the anti-gun people twist the truth.

Take a look:

Meet 2 Women Who Challenged Obama On Gun Control

Meet 2 Women Who Challenged Obama on Gun Control

Two women who own guns almost stole the show by challenging President Barack Obama’s views and actions when he took his gun control pitch to a live audience on national TV.

Gun owners Taya Kyle, widow of “American Sniper” Chris Kyle, and Kimberly Corban, a Colorado rape victim, took on Obama’s push for stricter gun laws during CNN’s hourlong town hall event Thursday night.

Kyle disputed the administration’s repeated assertion that stricter gun control measures would curb violence, remarking that under Obama’s presidency the murder rate is at an all-time low while gun ownership is at its peak in the U.S.

The Daily Signal is the multimedia news organization of The Heritage Foundation.  We’ll respect your inbox and keep you informed.

Kyle’s late husband was a decorated Navy SEAL. He was fatally shot from behind by a fellow veteran he had taken to a gun range as a way to help him.

Stricter laws would not prevent criminals with murderous intent from killing, Kyle told Obama:

We have to recognize that we cannot outlaw murder. Because the people who are murdering are breaking the law, but they also don’t have the moral code that we have. So they can do the same amount of damage with a pipe bomb. The problem is that they want to murder.

Obama agreed that not all criminals could be stopped through expanded background checks, but said gun laws, like traffic laws, could reduce fatalities over time “so families are spared.”

Corban, who said she purchased a gun to protect herself and her two children after being raped as a college student, told the president that his proposed gun controls would make her family and other Americans “less safe.”

“I have been unspeakably victimized once already, and I refuse to let that happen again to myself or my kids,” Corban said.

Corban was raped in 2006 while a student at the University of Northern Colorado. Her attacker was convicted and got a 24-year prison sentence, but she has suffered from depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and seizures.

“Why can’t your administration see that these restrictions that you’re putting [in place] to make it harder for me to own a gun, or harder for me to take that where I need to be, is actually just making my kids and I less safe?” she asked Obama.

The president responded that nothing his administration has proposed “would make it harder for you to purchase a firearm.”

Obama’s executive actions, announced Tuesday, would expand background checks through stricter gun licensing requirements and added FBI personnel to process applications.

The president also wants $500 million to improve access to mental health treatment, a measure that may require congressional approval.

Number One With a Bullet.

                   Very interesting.  Also very​ educational.
If you think guns are a problem in the U.S. You should watch this.
If, on the other hand, you do not believe guns are a problem then you should watch this. It’s that good.
Very well done. You will really like this one (especially those of you in TEXAS).
Most of the main network news broadcasting channels, (Mainstream Media), are an embarrassment to the United States of America.
Be sure to watch until through the end.

Peggy Noonan’s Take on Trump

Subject: Peggy Noonan on Trump

Back in December, Peggy Noonan wrote about Trump in her Wall Street Journal column. This one surprised me — her analysis (20 items) on Trump is beyond anything done on any other candidate – by anyone. She states “this is not an appeal to vote for Trump”, but it is conclu-sive. If anything, it is a hell of a read and many can’t help but learn quite a bit.
Trump – Things You Might Not Know About Him

Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up.  The criticisms of Trump are amazingly missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him.  After all the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous and of high integrity than people may think.  And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness.  A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of New York City.  A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that.  Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others.But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework.  But, since most Americans won’t.

1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so.  If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help.  Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life.  He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

2.) Trump wants America to have a strong military again.  He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense.  He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle.  Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too

3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include 7 core principles  American interests come first.  Always.  No apologies. Maximum firepower and military preparedness. Only go to war to win. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies.Keep the technological sword razor sharp. See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. Respect and support our present and past warriors.

4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them.  He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing.  For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U.S., once again creating jobs here.

6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws.  According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America.  He wants to build a wall to stop illegals from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.)  He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegals.

8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy.  He wants to make America the place to do business.  He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system.  He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth.  He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.”  He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down.  He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington, acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue.  He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients.  He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy.  On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles and encourage people to get back to work.  And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

14.) Trump opposes Common Core.

15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.

18.) Trump supports the death penalty. Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!).  He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around.  He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events.  Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean), and cost about $5 million.  I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done.  The problem wasn’t the size of the room, it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy.  We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs!  So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people.  Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense.  It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense.  On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

19. Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning.  He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true.  He’s never filed personal bankruptcy.  He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time.  But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

20. He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation.  Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America.  And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.”   We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans.  Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them.  Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due.

Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer, as it is important to know what each of our candidates to replace a President who has ruined us globally, and who has put us on a path to disaster!   This is not an appeal to vote for Trump, only to give some depth of compari-son, before this week’s debate.
