      You should see a button at the top of the page that says ‘follow’ at the top of the page. By clicking on it you should be notified whenever I publish a new article. (Though I haven’t been writing much of late as my last articles on Islam and global warming are getting more attention than any before, so I’m making sure they keep circulating. Maybe I’m finding how to advertise my articles better.)

  4. Dustin, I am SO Pleased to have found your site. I have spent the last hour or two reading many of the articles on the home page in the order they appear. The resource you have provided is just Outstanding. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your understanding of the clear differences between the “Left” and the “Right” in America, and the world for that matter, is so right on and so clearly written. I have been of one mind with you for many years now. But I don’t have the ability to clearly articulate it, either in writing or in debate with all those in my life who are either committed liberals or just plain ignorant, low information voters. With your assumed permission, I will use your articles as needed to try to help them to see the truth.

    I look forward in the days ahead to consuming all of the wisdom you have here on your site. I have signed up to follow you and receive email notice of each new post.

    Thank you again for your dedication to the cause of truth and the America we love and fight for.

    I need some advice. When it comes to voting, I believe we should always vote for the most conservative politician at any level from local on up. When the presidential election comes along and it is down to one republican and one democrat, I believe only one of those two will be elected. We haven’t had that strong of a third party yet. Although I didn’t initially want him, I voted for McCain and Romney because I did not want Obama worse. My issue is I believe voting third party for presidents always gets a democrat elected. Do you agree and if so, how do I get this point to friends that will not vote for liberal republicans for president? Thank you.

      Believe me, I know their frustration and feel much the same way. After watching three election cycles in which the GOP let candidate’s victories slip away because they were of the Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio variety, hearing them disparage the TEA Party then say they support conservatism, I got sick of them and would have loved to see a third party candidate. But history is against us.

      Not just the Bush/Perot debacle that resulted in Clinton, but the Roosevelt/Taft debacle that resulted in Wilson and set the stage for Democrats to corrupt and dominate our political system for the next century. If you examine the history of the American presidency, Republicans dominated throughout the 19th century and Democrats have dominated the 20th century. The 19th century was filled with slavery in the South and resulted in the Robber Barons in the North, both of which were overthrown by Republicans.

      So, without going into a huge history lesson, we know that was Democrat propaganda that demonized Republicans resulting in their being given control of Congress in 2006 and the presidency in 2008. People voted for them because they were disgusted with the GOP moderates whose spending was just a version of liberal-lite, promoting cronyism through government subsidies, and that is not how capitalism advances to lift people from poverty. Obama says it’s how “the economy grows from the middle out,” alluding to the Middle Class. But the fact is that is how the government grows fat. The economy through capitalism grows from the bottom up lifting people out of poverty.

      So, how do you explain to your friends that voting third party is only splitting the Republican vote leaving the majority to Democrats? Unfortunately, our system only tallies one vote. If the election of the president required a majority vote, this problem would be rendered moot, but it does not much as we would like it to be. So we are left with the two party system.

      Some in my family voted Democrat in 2008 because they were disgusted with Republicans, and now they are absolutely horrified at what is being wrought by Democrats. So I tell them:

      When you are disgusted with Republicans you NEVER vote Democrat. You get involved in the primary process and vote for BETTER Republicans.

      And when you can’t get the good conservatives then you select the lesser of two evils between moderates and liberals. Victories by liberal Democrats has resulted in moderate Republicans who believe pandering as liberals-lite is the solution. Ronald Reagan and Newt Gingrich proved otherwise. We have a new generation on the rise in Walker, Cruz, and Rubio, and they offer the most fearless, undiluted Americanism that is exactly what is needed to restore this nation. Best of luck to you.

    That’s pretty much what I’ve learned. The time to get the Walker’s and Cruz’s and Paul’s elected is now. If it comes down to another RINO like Bush or Lindsay Graham on November, I have to hold my nose and vote for them because another Obama or Clinton or Sanders would mean so much worse. Thanks for the confirmation.

    Dusty, why do you not like Fiorina? Yes ,she was wrong to support the arrest of the Baltimore policeman, but she is right on 80% of the time and she is great, articulate at going after Hillary, the media, and the left in general. More so then any conservative I see.She would be a great V.P.on any GOP ticket.

      It’s not that I dislike her, I’m just not a Fiorina supporter. Being wrong on the Baltimore cops is a big black mark on her, but though her overall record is good, there are too many others who I prefer far more. I don’t need there to be a woman running against a woman (Hillary). I like a Walker/Cruz ticket better than any other, with Rubio as SML and Issa or Goudy as Speaker.

        we have to capture 5-10% of the 66 million low information voters. If we can find a V.P. candadate who can articulate 90% of our limited governemnt republican policies, while attacking our opponents- we can win.
        It’s not only what we high info voters want, but we have to somehow appeal to the low info voters-without giving in on the 5 or 6 most important policy issues.

        Why Rubio? He wants more H1 visas to replace American workers. Yeah, I know; it isn’t directly him, but the businesses are taking advantage of American workers by replacing them with cheaper labor. Until these loopholes are fixed no one should be adding more visas!

    sorry, could not find your contact page, so I am posting here.

    I have written a new book that is timely to this election cycle. It is briefly described below.

    Although Americans understand most of the issues facing the country, they don’t have a clear understanding of the associated costs. That is, in terms of money out of their pockets and how it affects choices that they make on a daily basis. Politicians don’t do a good job of explaining the costs and don’t dare talk about Americans losing their freedom of choices. This concern prompted me to write a book on the subject. It is called – Choices. It describes the issues, talks about the monetary costs and how they affect choices for American citizens. It also describes how many of those choices are either becoming limited or are being taken away.

    I am looking for reviews and am offering the book free to your readers as I am more interested in getting the message out than making money.Β  I can send you a pdf of the book upon your request.

    Thanks for your consideration,
    Ron Celano

  10. Interesting blog Mr. Koellhoffer. First of all, thank you very much for your military service and years with the Dallas Fire Department. All of you do not get enough recognition (OR PAY!!!) for all you do, so thank you Sir.

    My hometown is Dallas, Oak Cliff to be exact, and I am an 8th generation Texan; my mother is a member of Daughters of the Republic. Our families have been here a long, long, LONG time from the Red River to the Gulf and as far as Midland-Odessa to Longview or Beaumont. One of our ancestors & family founded the town of Castroville, TX before the state joined the Union. I must be honest, the two primary reasons Texas has been so “Red” the last 30-years (minus Ann Richard’s four) are 1) below-average to poor public educations the last 30+ years that leads to ‘ignorant’ voters or that don’t have MIT degrees to decipher the complex convoluted voter-registration protocols, and 2) Texas’ oil business and cattle-ranching moguls: $$$$$$$! This leads to (higher-educated) political manuevering on the scales of the 2003 Congressional Redistricting scam that today does NOT represent the lowly-educated majority people of Texas. Period. In a word, plutarchy.

    Though I kindly respect your political views, the party of which you are so fond actually does not truly represent the majority of Texans, just the wealthy minority. And that’s just the entire history of Texas (in a nutshell) since Gov. Bill Clements. The state’s horrible social, educational, and economic stats the last 30+ years speak clearly to this fact.

    Peace to you and best regards Mr. Koellhoffer. And thank you again for your service in both occupations! πŸ™‚

      Funny. You say you are a multi-generational Texan, but talk like a Californian. In forty years the people that I have met in Texas who are the least educated, the most racist, and the most mean-spirited have been Democrats. Texas, like the rest of the South didn’t go Republican because their educational system failed. That’s what happened in Democrat controlled states. It became Republican because of all the Republicans who moved south during the Reagan era for economic advancement rather than servitude to corrupt Democrat unions. Texas didn’t go fully Republican till Bush and that was after the near disaster of Ann Richards almost making Texas a destitute Democrat state requiring state taxes.

        Nevertheless, there are always 3 to 4 sides to every issue, every point-of-view…typically/always none of them 100% perfect.

        All the best to you Mr. Koellhoffer.

  11. How closely is the Obama “selling of the internet to NATO linked to the “Paris Agreement”? Is this the reason there is only “reality television” and then all media is free to sell their brand of TV and bind us to cable companies like ATT forever. Leaving all clean and enjoyable without muslim on a trash heap? Ar5e we waiting for the “other shoe” to drop and leave us with out wholesome American Media, forever? I can not log on facebook for having used the sentence “Deport muslims”! What else is there?
