“And to face these threats we need people in Congress with guts enough to take the heat from the media who will scream bloody murder when some of the drastic, but necessary, steps are taken.” – Charlie Daniels
I know that I am not privy to the intelligence and other strategic information that comes across a president’s desk every day and know that the decisions they make have to be predicated on the current and ongoing data supplied by the myriad of agencies that glean and comb through the domestic and international happenings on a 24/7 basis, and therefore I am not qualified to evaluate and decide how to deal with it with only tip of the iceberg information.
However, I am an American citizen who pays taxes and has observed the American scene through numerous presidential administrations, several wars, and the newest and most deadly monster of Radical Islamic Terrorism, and have some strong opinions based on what I call cowboy logic.
Cowboy logic is simple and based on three principles:
1. 2 + 2 is always 4
2. Water never runs uphill
3. If there’s smoke, there’s a fire somewhere.
And here goes,
I think our political bodies, for the most part, are made up of men and women who operate not by what they know in their hearts to be the best thing for America, and the reality and necessity of the situation, but the perception they are able to generate that will assure them and their party re-election.

‘Once we’ve reached it there will be blood’
Country-rock superstar Charlie Daniels, who at 80 years old is still performing, regularly encourages patriotism, faithfulness to the American ideal and support for America’s troops.
He’s also calling out the extremists on both ends of the political spectrum for endangering Americans’ lives.
In a new Soap Box commentary, he warns that both have their radicals, and they are becoming a threat.
“Basically what we are seeing in the streets of America doesn’t resemble mostly peaceful civil rights marches as much as it resembles anarchy, pure and simple, aided by milksop politicians who so fear they might lose a vote, they allow part of the population to run all over the rest of the population, claiming to act in the name of freedom of speech, while half of the free speech in the affected cities is being drowned out by shrill, fanatical voices and the deafening silence of any media to tell their side of the story,” he writes in a piece published Friday.
He said the radicals are taking all the oxygen out of the coverage, referring to the KKK and other white supremacists, and the anti-Trump “Antifa” and their far-left cohorts.

Legendary American singer, songwriter, and guitarist Charlie Daniels penned an op-ed this week in which he explains that President Donald Trump is not a member of the “club” of establishment Washington elites whose main goal is power – not public service.
In the op-ed for CNSNews.com, Daniels reflects on the state of American government, industry and culture in the hands of establishment politicians – Republicans and Democrats alike – who, he says, easily obtain “immunity” from their own “crimes and misdemeanors”:
I’ll let you in on a little secret, Donald Trump is not a member of their club either, and while I’m very well aware that his juvenile name-calling and acerbic tweets do not serve him well sometimes, the main problem the establishment has with Donald Trump is not Russia.
Do you think that Chuck Schumer actually thinks that Trump colluded with Russia, had some secret deal that would benefit him to the detriment of America?
I’d be willing to bet my Ram pickup truck against a lug nut that if you hooked Schumer up to a lie detector and asked him that question he’d fail the test.
No, Schumer, the rest of the Democrat attack machine, George Soros, the Barack Obama’s well-financed underground – et al – have known better than to believe that.

In the wake of another failure by Congress to get a key piece of legislation passed this week, musician Charlie Daniels has a solution to help alleviate government dysfunction — throw them all out.
In a series of tweets this week, the 80-year-old “Devil Went Down to Georgia” musician blasted Congress after the Senate’s failure to advance the Republican-led repeal of the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.
Daniels specifically called out the Senate, which he termed “a kindergarten class.”
OK the congress and senate we have can't work together and have proven it. solution- replace them all until we find people who can

If the new president and the Republican House and Senate will just do what they were elected to do, you have nothing to worry about because the results will be evident and immediate and the American public will be ecstatic about the way they voted.
I have never seen a party so divided win anything, much less the White House, while retaining both houses of Congress, and a preponderance of the state houses.
Many of you don’t deserve this win. Some of you so disliked the party’s presidential candidate that you threatened – and perhaps really did – vote for the opposition. Others chose to remain silent and distanced yourself predicting there would be a catastrophic loss and you didn’t want the residue to splash on you.
Well, the votes have been counted, the win was big, the candidate’s coattails dragged members of the House and Senate to victory, and as usual, the deserters are scurrying to bask in the afterglow.
Let me tell you something, you guys had better get it together real quick and if you’ve got thin skin and weak knees, you might as well stay outside the fray because the Republican Party is getting ready to be under a kind of pressure that has never been exerted and anybody who isn’t prepared to be castigated, lied about and called a hundred different kinds of fools and just keep on keeping on, will get in the way and muddy the water.

In an exclusive interview given to AR-15 manufacturer Daniel Defense, country music legend Charlie Daniels reminds Americans that disarmament is key to the slide toward totalitarian government.
In other words: first they disarm you, then they control you, Daniels expressed.
The interview opens with Daniels saying:
Some people are willing to lose some freedoms just to maintain their way of life. I’m not. I don’t want to lose my freedoms. I don’t want my freedoms taken away from me. But some people are that way and they are becoming more and more every day.
“Unfortunately I feel the ebb of patriotism again. I can’t believe that we have set back in this country and let things deteriorate to the point that they are,” he added. “And I cannot believe how very unaware about 40 percent of the population of this country are about what is happening.”
Jan 20, 2016– The inaugural lecture of the School of Public Policy’s Wilburn Distinguished Lecture Series on Politics and Policy featured British historian and biographer Andrew Roberts.
