“Peace through strength.”
Maybe no other phrase more embodies Ronald Reagan. That he believed so thoroughly in this concept was what made it so powerful. Far from being an out-of-control cowboy, Reagan was being utterly reasonable: make sure the world’s bullies understand that not only CAN you wipe them off the face of the Earth, but you have the conviction to do just that, IF they don’t behave accordingly.
His clarity on this subject was echoed by the recently deceased Margaret Thatcher, who along with Reagan formed a solid wall of willpower which ultimately toppled the Soviet Union.
Oh, that we had such leadership today.

In this chapter of “Mr. Virtual President”, Bill Whittle weighs in on another topic which is so deceptively portrayed by the Left: Illegal Immigration.
This subject is consistently and deliberately referred to as simply “immigration” by its opponents, which blurs the rather salient difference between “immigration” and its illegal counterpart. Folks who are justifiably against the latter are instead accused of hating the former, and then labeled Xenophobes. It’s an old trick, but one which the Left uses in their arguments all the time (e.g. with stem cells vs. EMBRYONIC stem cells, etc.,..).
The White House miscalculated mightily on the whole Sequester Fear-athon, and they’ve been taking it on the chin in the polls ever since. The pathetically insignificant cuts in the rate of spending happened, the world didn’t end, and we’re still borrowing approximately $.35 of every dollar spent.
So why would Obama-&-Company continue this deplorable tactic?
C’mon, you know why:
Bill Whittle is back again, in his role as ‘Mr. Virtual President’.
His previous forays as the ‘MVP’ are here (“VIRTUAL Inaugural Address of 2013″),
and here (“2nd Amendment is there to protect the American people from US…”).
In this edition he addresses Voter Fraud, a subject that we’ve hit many times, as well. It’s a short clip (only 7 minutes), but as always, Whittle delivers the goods:
This is the 2nd in a series of short video addresses from the man who never seems to sleep, Bill Whittle, as he steps back into his role of “Mr. Virtual President”.
The previous one mirrored January’s Inaugural Address, and the clip below is fashioned after the State Of The Union speech. But just like the 1st installment, it’s presented as if we had a President who cared more about truth, than politics or raw power.
The quickest seven minutes you’ll spend today:
The inaugural address we all WISH we’d seen this year.
Quote from Bill’s new website:
“Virtual President” Bill Whittle outlines the three essential qualities needed for the Pursuit of Happiness in Modern America, and sets a challenge to free entire generations of Americans.
Twenty minutes long, but worth it …as always:
Earlier, I did my best to remain upbeat & positive despite Obama’s swearing-in ceremony, marking the start of another 4 years as
dictator El Numero Uno POTUS.
Admittedly, it wasn’t easy.
Thankfully, my family and I are spending the week watching our Special Extended Cut version of ‘The Lord of the Rings‘ trilogy, and this particular quote helped put me in the proper frame of mind:
“It is not despair, for despair is only for those who see the end beyond all doubt. We do not.”
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring
Now don’t misunderstand me: I’m not being Pollyanna-ish about our current difficulties. Only a fool could be aware of any of the following issues and not fear for our country’s future:
It takes great self-control on my part not to simply re-post each and every Bill Whittle, Andrew Klavan and AlfonZo Rachel column/video which comes out.
Why? Because they usually range in quality from merely extremely good & pertinent all the way up to outstanding. Wait, did I say “usually”? What I meant was: EVERY time.
And so, …just for today, I’ve decided to relinquish that self-control…and post something from all three of them. Consider this my version of the “if-it-feels-good-do-it” ethos that’s so popular on the Left.
