DFS = It’s in the details

December 14, 2018

So last night, late, I’m sitting there watching the last game unfold. I had one entry in the 400$ per entry pool and it paid out 11 places. I’m out of 11th place by 0.6 pts and the 800 it pays puts me up for the night. Not a lot, but up.

Blocked shots = .5 pts. I’ve got 1 player left playing, Brett Burns….. In the ultimate Murphy’s Law case he blocks a shot with 30 seconds remaining, the Stars have 6 attackers and an empty net. Anything, a shot, another block, God forbid an actual goal, and it’s a great night.

Awesomeo, Dollar, Testor, and the rest are comfortably parked in the money as usual.

Sure enough, the clock hits zero and I end up .1 out of a profitable night.

Why am I whining? Well, I am trying not to while I make a point. If you want to play DFS and you are doing so with a mindset that is anything beyond casual you have to understand that every single roster spot is insanely crucial.

.1 pts last night cost me 800 bucks and that was NOTHING compared to what I’ve seen over the past 2 years. I’ve seen that same margin be the difference between 2500 and 25000. I’ve seen it be the difference between winning 10k or nothing.

Fact is roster assembly, and this is likely pretty obvious to even the most rookie of players, is where the games won and lost.

I am embarrassed to admit it but there were times last year when I first started out that I was unaware of the fact that in hockey you can have guys ‘scratched’ literally a few minutes before the puck drops.

Why is that important? Well, the #1 reason is that if you aren’t paying attention you get a doughnut in that spot on your roster for the night. And yes, there were nights, more than I care to admit when I rostered a player that was a late scratch, more often than not it was goalies! Putting my lineups in early and kicking back before every goalie was ‘confirmed’ as the starter.

Fast forward to mid-evening when I am perusing my scores and I look at a team and see my goalie with 0 pts, and no saves, midway through the 2nd period…..

There were many nights, again more than I’d like to admit to, when I had a zero goalie cost me a significant amount of money. Nights when I would have broken even, or profited anywhere from 100 to 3-4K, where I ended up with nothing.

DF ex1

Let me show you something. This is from tonight, actually it’s a tournament going on right now.

First off notice another of the worlds best I_Slewfoot_U who’s all over the top 10 midway through the evening in the 150 entry GPP pool. But check out Awesemo in the 5th spot tied with a few guys. Actually, he has two teams tied there.

He and I picked the ‘same’ lineup, Carolina’s top line paired with the Knights top line. We both took Carlson as one of our D’s and he took Faulk and I took Nurse while he took DeSmith and I took Fleury (who gave up a 4th goal not long after this screenshot).

3pts separate us right here. His two 5th place teams are at the moment worth 1600 bucks while my team is winning 150.

Every single spot on the roster is of crucial importance. To create a top tiered 1st and 2nd line combo often times you’re left ‘scraping’ the bottom of the barrel for 2 D worth 25-2700 each. It’s IMPERATIVE you get guys that do NOT take a donut!

You cannot afford zeroes in any spot on your roster.

That data I told you about in an earlier post? Ya, I know exactly what % a 3rd line defender that does not play on the PP scores how many pts. I know his chances of scoring 3.5+ (a goal is 3.5 pts, 3 for the goal and .5 for the shot). I know his chances of scoring 1 or less. I know his chances of scoring 5 or more, 7 or more, 10 or more and so on. I know those % for every position on the ice, every line, every spot.

So when I’m left with those last picks and trying to find that 2600$ defenseman to fill out the roster spot I don’t grab the guy who averages the most pts, I grab the guy who is “potentially” positioned to score more than the rest of the 2600$ defenders that night. It’s a combination of Fantasy Cruncher and the data I have compiled.

Until next time!

Pass the Puck 12/14 edition

December 14, 2018

I was never a trash talker. I’d give and take in the clubhouse with teammates, and when I had the ball in my hand I had confidence, but I wasn’t a trash talker.

I did, however, lambaste trash talkers. Loved calling them out.

I say this because I deserve trash talking.

I was 55-22 before I started this blog, I gave 3 bets the 1st night, and went 0-3. I could list a litany of reasons why I lost but in betting, reasons are like buttholes, everyone has one and they all stink.

Tonight I went with Colorado -1.5 over St Louis and Pittsburgh -1.5 over Boston (Hate betting against the B’s!!!)

The Avalanche are as good as it gets and the Mackinnon line might be every bit as good as the Bergeron line when he’s healthy, if not better. They are on a roll and against a team that I have no clue about in the Blues who come into tonight a game below .500 at home and Jake Allen minding the net with his .899 save % and their league worst GA at home to boot.

Colorado is #2 in GF and the PP on the road.

I feel like the Pens are just starting to be the Pens. Crosby feels back and even with Hornqvist out they look better and better each night. Feels like DeSmith might be coming back to earth a bit but if they can get Murray right and get 2 goalies going things will get nasty.

I feel like the B’s are doing a yeoman’s job sans Bergy and Marchands 2 goals the other night might be a sign of things to come. 6-4 in their last 10 and given they have 38 pts with the massive number of injuries they’ve had to date should be a warning to the rest of the east to get while the getting is good on the B’s.

Normally Anthony Stolarz in net and the Flyers in town would mean the Oilers are a lock. But the back end of a back to back with West coast travel is a bitch on teams in baseball, can’t imagine what it’s like for guys skating. Philly could sneak one out and it could be a decent money line wager at +105.

The only other game I’d peek at to give 1.5 on would be Jets/Hawks in Chicago. Still getting a feel for hockey back to back games but this is an epic mistmatch.

For what it’s worth I went with the top line as one of my huge stacks tonight in DFS, the Hawks give up more shots than any team but one at home this year and the Jets are top 5 in the league in taking those shots. Expect 6-14 3.20 .930 Corey Crawford to need an IV between periods tonight.

Daily Hockey fundamentals

December 13, 2018

I’m setting this out there as a basis for all the things that will come after. I’ve spent quite literally over a thousand hours researching the past 2 hockey seasons.

Every single game, every single player, everything. I’ve put together hundreds of pages of data, compiled thousands and thousands of data points. Missed, hit, wasted my time, found some nuggets and everything in between.

Let me tell you how it happened, and where it started.

I will often reference my playing career because many of the lessons I learned carried over and do so in almost every aspect of my life.

First, any manager I ever played for would tell you I was eminently coachable. I followed rules, I did my job and I had zero problems with being a part of a team. I say this because in doing so I was open to anything. I listened, I sought out advice, I looked for and talked to the best of the best. In plain speak? I didn’t try to ‘reinvent the wheel’.

I did the exact same thing here.

How? My first task last year started sometime in mid-December. I was tired of losing. I had won a small pot here and there, I had lost far more. The frustration wasn’t just in the loss but rather in the fact that not only was I losing consistently, but day in and day out the same 4-6 names were winning. Every…..single…..day.

One thing I know about winning, consistent winning, is that it is never an accident or a coincidence. So I did exactly the same thing I did when I played. I went back to opening day of the hockey season and researched every single tournament I played in.

By research I mean I went through each tournament and wrote down every single team these guys that were winning had submitted. Each team they entered that qualified for prize money I could see their rosters.

By mid-December, there were more than enough games, tournaments, and data to see exactly how and what they were doing.

I am going to give a plug for a product I use, and most if not all good to great daily players use called Fantasy Cruncher  . Get it, familiarize yourself with it and use it. It’s an absolute necessity no matter what DFS sport or site you play.

So back to the data. I had combed through thousands of individual lineups and games and it had become sparklingly clear exactly how the premier players created their daily lineups. Not the players they picked, but how they picked the players they picked.

Let me give you a small sample of data I am talking about.

As of about a week ago in the 2018-19 season there had been a total of 15239 man games played. Meaning 1 player playing 1 game is 1 man game. So 15239 players had played a game.

If you selected a center, forward or defenseman that was NOT on his team’s power play unit you had a 58.41% chance that player would score 1 POINT OR LESS!

To that date, there had been a total of 144 games in which a player had scored 10 or more points on Draft Kings in a single game. 93.06% of the 144 10+ point games were had by players ON their team’s power play units and of that 72.92 % were on their teams top PP unit.

You see where I’m going right? The data is infinite and it’s easy as hell to get paralyzed by it. What is relevant? What isn’t? That’s part of the learning curve.

One more? Centers and Forwards that were on their team’s top line AND their teams top PP unit were the ONLY positions that registered 3.5 pts per game or more 50+% of the time (C = 55.18% and F = 50.87%).

That’s the kind of data I have compiled, and keep compiling. That’s the data I will be giving folks access to on a daily basis as I move forward fleshing this site out as both a DFS and betting site.

I will start getting into more detail as we move along into how I now compile my lineups and I have to say quite honestly I don’t know how I am going to do tonight but tonight is the first night in two years I finally feel like I am doing it the way the best of the best do it. (as I write this Vasilevsky is 43 of 44 vs Toronto tonight, guess the foots all better!). I’m sitting in 5th and 6th in the GPP big pool and 12th in the 400$ team game with just 1 entry. I’ll post my results each night and anyone that plays will see them anyway.

BTW, 2 of my bets from last night are looking like poop salad. Carolina, coming into tonight, was #1 on the road in shots for and shots against on the road, and tonight they’re being outshot 35-21 and down 4-2 in the 3rd. Not exactly what I was hoping for going public with my first night’s bets!

So anyway I wanted to start giving anyone interested a little insight into DFS and how it works. Clearly, there is no one way, but there is a right way. There is a way that it is done and players like Awesemo, l800Eddie, Testosterown, DollarBillW, boggslite and a few others do it consistently and do it right. They win night in and night out and they do so because they’re disciplined and they work within a very specific system.

Pass the Puck 12/13 edition

December 13, 2018

I’m writing this early in the 12/12 slate of games with the Jackets and Sabres up 2-1 and Cirelli just tied the Leafs with a short-handed goal (which is a good thing since that is one of the 3rd lines I did stack in DFS today!).

My Carolina -1.5 isn’t looking hot right now as it’s 0-0 midway through the 1st.

Tomorrow we’re looking at 8 more games. I’ll update later but right now the only game I’m even a little comfortable with going -1.5 is the Jets/Blackhawks but I want to see who is in net before I make that pick.

I also really like the Caps over the ‘Canes. Caps are playing wicked good hockey right now and Oshie’s back (8-2 last 10) while Carolina is barely a .500 team at home (7-5-3) and coming home after a night game.

But again I am going to wait and see who gets the call in net.

Moneyline picks before I see the netminders? Colorado over St Louis, Edmonton over Philly, Golden Knights over the Devils (Knights are heating up, 8-2 last 10 and the Devils are headed the other way at 2-4-4 in their last 10).

If I was looking at unders I like Arizona and the Rangers. Coyotes on back end of R/R games and they are the 2nd best GA on the road in the NHL while the Rangers are #3 at home in GA with the games best SV% in their own building.

For DFS right now it’s going to be very hard not to stack WPG 1 and 2 tomorrow, Edmontons on a R/H back to back but whoever is in net for the Flyers will be a good target.

 

Pass the Puck

December 12, 2018

That will be the name of my new podcast, blog, articles etc.

For the past two years, I’ve been immersed in daily fantasy Hockey. Mainly on Draft Kings but more and more this year on Fanduel as well.
I’ve lost more than I’ve won. But that’s changing a bit. I’ve also managed a small account on Bovada where I am currently sitting on a 74% win % betting hockey games, lines, money lines, over/under, and spreads.

Why? Well first off I’ve become obsessed with the sport. There is nothing like it. The pace, the athletic ability and the athletes themselves are something to watch. That’s not even getting to the playoffs, which blow away the postseason in any other sport.

How? I spent 22 years in the big leagues and numbers were my life. My entire career on the mound was based on numbers. Sure wins and losses were the top line things most fans read about and looked for. But starting in about 1995 I started to understand that the wins and losses were both ‘built’ on numbers that people outside the game, heck people INSIDE the game, had no clue on.
First pitch strike %, what’s the count with the largest swing in average? (1-1 to 1-2 or 2-1 if you want to know). First pitch swing %. Swing % in counts, strikeout to walk ratio for HITTERS and so much more.

When I married my passion for numbers with the video I entered a new phase in my career and took my ability to prepare to a new universe.

Fast forward to my post-career and that sports network that shall not be named. I managed to meet a young man who was hardcore into daily fantasy baseball. Every night he would give his picks and say things you just don’t say about world-class athletes. However, I came to understand what it was he was saying without ever saying it. Statistics don’t lie. Numbers DO tell almost the whole story.

It also married up with the movement in baseball of so many non-traditional front office types entering the game as well as what felt like a ‘stat a day’ from the sabermetricians.

Basically what the baseball folks were saying was that you could make a very accurate prediction on a team without ever seeing them play, before the season even started. Purists hated this. I watched.

This young man was saying the same thing but on a micro scale. If you paid attention to the RIGHT statistics you could be better than everyone else on a daily basis at DFS (Daily Fantasy Sports). I also met a young lady who was joining the company as their DFS basketball ‘guru’ who looked anything but the part. I was talking with her about the ‘job’, because she called her DFS a ‘job’ and she told me her previous years income bordered 7 figures. That’s 7 BEFORE the “.”.

Fast forward to last year. I started to dabble, and consistently lose, on daily fantasy hockey. At some point soon I am going to put my daily stuff behind a paywall, but before I do I am going to do anyone out there interested or ‘dabbling’ in DFS in any sport a piece of advice to save you thousands, to tens of thousands of dollars.

If you are not 100% committed to the important statistics and up on the latest roster moves and daily lineups right up to tip-off, puck drop or first pitch? Don’t. Stop. Quit.

I give you my word, and this is from the first-hand experience. You are doing nothing but donating to the pot of money the winners are going to take. You’re the sucker at the Texas Hold’em Table in Rounders. I cannot emphasize this strongly enough, you literally have a lottery chance in hell of winning your money back much less winning more.

It’s not you, it’s “them”. By them, I mean the folks who actually do make a living doing this. Let me also add this. When I say make a living I am talking about real money. Tracking the best for over two years I’ve seen the SAME 5-10 people win anywhere from 2500 to 25000 A DAY during the hockey season. A day…..

It’s not a fluke, it’s not a coincidence, it’s what they do. They COUNT on people like you and I to ‘take a shot’ and they feed on us. I’ve been feeding them for a good while now. Not so much now as I did when I started as I’ve won some decent pots and pools and am still learning. (Right now I need the Pens and Flames to get going tonight!).

I’ve spent well north of 1000 hours the past 2 years in the numbers. I’ve dissected every single hockey game played since opening day last season. Every single game. By dissected I mean player by player, points, assists, blocked shots, pp pts, shift time, Corsi numbers, Fenwick, High danger chances and so much more.

I’m not just handing out the work I’ve done, that will come later. However, to start with I need to build some credibility and I have never had issues with putting it out there. If I’m wrong I am wrong, but I have confidence in what I am doing. I have devised an intricate system of data for each hockey game each night. At the end of that system, I get a few numbers to spit out and those are the numbers I will bet on Bovada with.

So I’ll start with tomorrow’s slate of games and my bets. I will never ever recommend a game I do not bet myself on. I tend to look for good odds, +150 or better and in hockey, you don’t get that generally without going to the “Team -1.5” when you bet. That’s what I do. I’ve gone 55-22 betting this way and the money line. Any bet I give you that is a -1.5 or more I am also saying I think the money line is a lock. Problem is the money line usually requires far too much $ to get a worthwhile return.

I am planning on making this, potentially, a daily fantasy column for betting Draft Kings and Fan Duel.

So without further ado! Tomorrow’s slate is 8 games and there are 3, in particular, I am betting and I love.

San Jose at home -1.5 vs Dallas (+145 on Bovada. For you new folks that means for every 100$ bet, if you win you win 145). Not only do the numbers scream on this one but Dallas is on the back end of a Road/Road back to back and SJ is 10-3-2 at home. They don’t give up shots at home and they have the games 2nd best PK under their own roof.

Winnipeg -1.5 vs Edmonton (+150). One of the NHL’s best home clubs (11-4 #1 PP #5 SV% and 6 in GF against a .500 road team that ranks in the bottom 3rd in about every meaningful stat on the board).
The other? Nashville -1.5 vs Vancouver (+130 on Bovada). Another home beast (12-5) against a struggling team that doesn’t play well on the road.

A third game I’ll toss out there, I am betting but more due to the +235 odds is the Canadians -1.5 over Carolina. Carolina can’t score on their mothers on the road (28th in GF) but Montreal has some sieve potential defensively. This is just one of those “odds are too good to pass up” bets for me. Tread lightly on this one.

What’s changed? The left sure hasn’t.

August 9, 2018

 

Does someone from the left want to actually defend this? 50+ years and no core values have changed on the left, none.

The Switch that never happened.

July 26, 2018

There is an open-ended debate on Twitter in which I was trying to explain to some folks the oversold and untrue story around the “switch” liberals want you to believe happened in the 1960’s, in political parties. If you aren’t interested in history stop reading now. It’s important to understand the history to understand the present so let’s start there.

Reconstruction Era 1863-1877

This was the end of the Confederate Nationalism as well as the ‘end’ of slavery. Slaves were supposed to receive the same legal rights as everyone else through the 13th 14th, and 15th Amendments passed within a few years of the end of the war.

So the ¾ of a million deaths from the War was the “price” paid by White AND many blacks as well, to end the South secession movement and abolish slavery.

I think it is imperative to at least have a top-level understanding of what those 3 amendments were intended to do, not what they actually did.

  • The 13th Amendment abolished slavery. No gray area, no nebulous meanings or intentions, slavery was now against the law, no exceptions.
  • The 14th Amendment in a nutshell basically gave every person living in the US citizenship rights AND more importantly equal protection under the law. This was mainly to allow now freed slaves to ‘enjoy’ the same freedoms as non-slaves.
  • The 15th Amendment added voting rights for ALL citizens of the USA, regardless of race, color or previous enslavement. There were no caveats. If you were a legal citizen, you could vote.

Two things to mention here. It’s hard for anyone to understand in even the slightest capacity what blacks had to, were, and would continue to endure long after the civil war. I often times make the argument that “if these amendments were passed in the 1860’s, why on earth would we need a civil rights march over 100 years later? Why would people need to march for rights already afforded them in the Constitution?”

Unfortunately, the answer is simple, our government and law enforcement failed to uphold those amendments in both word and deed. The terrorist arm of the Democratic party, the KKK, was born out of all of this legislation as a way to suppress, oppress, terrorize and murder blacks, and jews for decades AFTER these amendments were put into “law.”

Also, remember this. The day the war ended, the day emancipation was declared, north of 3.95 MILLION slaves were freed. Almost 4 million people who’d spent their lives in conditions no animal should endure much less a human being was now “free.” Why is this a thing?

Very few of them had even a grade school education. The ones that did, Booker T Washington Up From Slavery and Frederick Douglass My Bondage By Freedom explain the chaos that resulted. Yes, they were all beyond ecstatic they had their freedom now, but what were they supposed to do? They had quite literally no possessions, no money, no savings of any kind. Many willfully remained “employed’ by their previous masters as a way to stay ’employed’ and earn a living. I don’t think I can come close to conveying the world they were now in. But if you are truly interested in this country, its history and how we got here, please read one if not both of these books. You cannot begin to imagine the horrors these men endured. I will add this. I don’t know how either of them came out of the war without a bitter hatred for white men and women, but they didn’t. Not only that but they came out self-educated and with a burning desire to make the world ‘right’ and for that, I think we owe them a level of gratitude reserved for few people.

So at this point, right around 1870, the war to end slavery and preserve the colonies as one was over. Laws were all in place to give blacks, whites, and women equal rights.

What happened?

It’s imperative to also note the following. Try google searching for the history of African American voting. You will notice one odd but now familiar trend. It is going to take you a rather long time to find ANY information about the black vote before 1936.

Why is that?

1936 was the seminal moment of the African American Voters relationship with the Democratic party. FDR’s “New Deal” would present the black voter a ‘welfare state’ in which you could not only receive gov’t assistance but you could in many cases do so without having to actually do anything. What’s not to like? Democrats knew exactly what they were doing and why they did it.

Before 1936, the votes of blacks leaned over 80% Republican and why wouldn’t they? The (R) party was the party of abolition and freedom.

Many Democrats like to present this shift as one of ideology, which is in fact completely untrue. Doctrines didn’t change, policies did.

For a group of people who had suffered unspeakable horrors for well over a century, there was a government that was going to ‘give them something’ for nothing. Just for being black and/or poor, the government would give you money. Now understand that was it. You got nothing else, you didn’t get business preference, or education preference, hell the country was still segregated, and that was still a deal breaker for Democrats. FDR actually appointed a member of the KKK to the supreme court as well as vetoing not one but TWO pieces of anti-lynching legislation. Democrats weren’t looking to help the black voter get ahead, they were just after the black vote, period. Nothing more, nothing less. Take a quick look ahead to 1944 and the GI Bill. This was legislation intended to help returning veterans get to college, buy their own homes and essentially ‘get on their feet.’

Well, that is unless you were a black GI. Veterans of color were not able to utilize the housing provisions of the GI bill because banks would not make mortgage loans to blacks and even worse was the fact that blacks were excluded from living in the suburbs by a lethal combination of racism and deed covenants that made that option a pipe dream and affected generations to come.

So yes, the New Deal ‘helped’ the black voter, it certainly bought their votes, and in many ways still does, but there was and never has been anything close to a serious effort from Democrats to allow those same voters to not just ‘survive’ but most importantly get up, dust off and get ahead.

Also, don’t forget this was the “peak” of the KKK’s influence and terror. A democratic creation of insatiable violence and terror to blacks and Jews in America. Many members of the party were actual MEMBERS and LEADERS of the KKK.

  1. Robert Byrd Senator and liberal “Icon” (Exalted Cyclops of his chapter) also known to Americans worldwide as Hillary Clinton’s “mentor.”
  2. Hugo Black joined the KKK in the early 20’s (to gain votes from Alabama voters who were staunchly anti-catholic)
  3. Bibb Graves (Exalted Cyclops of his Alabama Klan Chapter)
  4. Clifford Walker (Gov of Georgia) was a Klan member,
  5. George Gordon US house of reps was one of the Klan’s first members,
  6. John Tyler Morgan was the Grand Dragon of the KKK in Alabama,
  7. Edmund Pettus, a senator from Alabama, was also a Grand Dragon of the Alabama KKK,
  8. John Gordon Brown US Senator from Georgia was a member, and there was evidence he was actually the head of the Klan for Georgia as well,
  9. John Clinton Porter Mayor of LA was a member of the 1920s
  10. David Duke who began life as a Democrat and then when it became apparent he couldn’t get anywhere there, he switched parties and received even less recognition from Republicans, was the founder and grand wizard of the Knights of the KKK in the mid-1970’s. He ran for President in the 1988 Democratic primary.
  11. Benjamin Stapleton was the mayor of Denver and a klan member who used his position as mayor to appoint other members of the KKK to local govt positions.
  12. Harry S Truman paid the KKK’s 10$ membership fee in 1924

Now don’t be misled, there were men labeled Republicans who were members of the Klan. The main difference is they were nobodies who the party distanced themselves from when those affiliations became known. A quick look at their voting records shows you they were the first true RINO’s (Republicans in name only). Democrats LOVE these folks as they allow anyone not willing to look for themselves an opportunity to do what they always do, paint someone else in a horrific light that if you were to actually turn it on, would shine directly in their own faces.

Very much the same as the pedophiles, perverts and sexual deviants today. Both parties have them but don’t you find it disturbing that not only do Democrats merely destroy any other ‘party’ or ‘group’ in numbers of deviants, but their deviants aren’t “nobodies.” They are Presidents, Clinton, Kennedy, and world-changing power brokers like Harvey Weinstein and the Epstein clown and some of the biggest names Spacey, Gunn, Silverman and more. They have now started an effort to make pedophilia and rape “funny,” ‘uncomfortable” and “edgy” humor instead of being the tent pole for sexual deviance and repulsiveness that should be accompanied with life in prison or the death penalty.

But as usual, I digress.

We have the history of the black vote up through the second world war, and into the post-war period where segregation, racism, and Jim Crow Laws still ruled the day.

A quick note about Jim Crow laws.

They encompass any and all of the laws that enforced racial segregation in the south between the end of the reconstruction period, 1877, and the beginning of the civil rights movement of the 1950’s.

Minstrel shows were a theatrical form created in the early 1900’s to show and mock racial stereotypes. Think of “Blackface” and all that other crap. Jumpin’ Jim Crow was a particular “minstrel routine” which started in 1828 and was imitated for a lengthy period of time after. Jim Crow became a derogatory epithet for African Americans and has always remained just that.

But Jim Crow laws were the brainchild of the same Democrats that launched the KKK. These laws were passed to keep blacks and whites separated in every public forum from buses to schools, parks, cemeteries, restaurants, movie and show theaters. It was a concerted effort to keep blacks and whites from public contact. If you can believe this, it was actually codified into law by our very own US Supreme Court in 1896.

That lasted until the same supreme court reversed Plessy v Ferguson in 1954 in Brown v Board of Education Topeka. School segregation became unconstitutional. Sadly that lengthy period of time between 1896 and 1954 did not confine itself to our schools. Hell in 1898 Louisiana, soon followed by the democratic bastions of Mississippi, South Carolina, Alabama and Virginia passed “Grandfather clauses” to keep former slaves and their descendants from voting. The registered black vote fell from 44.8% to 4.0% in 1900.

How did that happen? How could these things happen when 70 some years before our Constitution was amended to stop this very thing from ever happening again?

How? Democrats and the KKK are how. Their coordinated campaign of violence and terror kept this nation from moving forward for decades. This wasn’t an “American issue’, this was a Democrat issue.

You don’t believe me? Ask someone about the “big switch” that supposedly happened in 1964. That switch? It involved precisely 4 members of the democratic party. Yes, 4.

And here is an enormous part of our history I will bet you never ever heard before. Every democrat that swapped to Republican in 1964 did so behind Barry Goldwater. Now liberals will tell you this is because these anti-segregation ‘racists’ were what republicans came to be.

That’s a lie. If you care about the truth check out the voting records in many cases. Goldwater voted against the act for a reason having  NOTHING to do with segregation or race. Like most every conservative his ONLY concern was the addition of power to the federal government and removal of states rights. That was the position of almost all Republicans in opposition to the bill. They didn’t want states rights to be jeopardized because they knew something about Democrats that we’ve learned the hard way. It’s never enough. Democrats have always been ‘give an inch take a mile,’ and we’re seeing that now in their approach to our border laws and 2nd Amendment. There is no situation ever where Democrats have rescinded even an ounce of power they’ve managed to steal from the people.

So no, there was no major ideology shift, it never happened.

The left is the party of ‘the people’?

Last presidential primary anyone?

Republicans? A Cuban, a world-class African American neurosurgeon, a woman who ran a fortune 500 company and some ‘old white guys.’

The Democrats?

The most corrupt repulsive and irrational old white women to ever run for any office north of dog catcher

“Two old white guys” one of whom allowed his OWN PARTY to rig the election so his opponent would win.

Who in the hell would want a man who won’t even fight for himself to get elected to a position that would force him to fight for others?

So a diverse group of candidates vs. three old wealthy whites. Party of the people my ass.

If you’ve stayed this long thanks. I hope you read something you might not have known before. You can absolutely hate my opinion, disagree with my opinion. It’s the same as Breitbart and CRTV. Our beliefs are conservative, and always up for debate. But? Facts are facts and always will be.

If you don’t believe me look for yourself.

I will warn you in advance though, be ready to have some things revealed to you that you never thought possible.

This “Walkaway” movement? That’s exactly who makes up that group, people who’ve listened to their whole lives to a message not a single one of their leaders or politicians lives.

The left has become the very thing they despise. They are the very thing they profess to hate.

Think “Antifa.” Antifa is a group of people acting EXACTLY like the brownshirts of the 1930’s, that is to say, fascists, all the while trying to convince the world they are AGAINST fascism.

And for the love of God would you liberals stop invoking Nazi history in ways that have nothing to do with actual history? Nazi’s were and still, today are a group of intolerant, hatred of anything and anyone that is not aligned with their ideology.

They launched their ‘movement’ shutting down stores and burning property of things and people they don’t like and disagreed with and/or were violent towards people for speaking out in opposition to their ideology. That’s EXACTLY what this ‘progressive’ movement is about.

Remember the photos of ISIS tearing down Christian statues in the middle east? They were statues of a religious ideology they oppose. Remember the images of Antifa tearing down statues of Confederate War Generals? Those statues weren’t erected to ‘support’ slavery, they were erected as monuments to our history. Our history is certainly not paved in gold and lined in platinum. We’ve made mistakes, horrible ones. But we still remain the only nation in existence that went to war, with ourselves, to end slavery. It’s imperative that we never forget the mistakes we made as we move forward. In the liberal world, it’s out of sight out of mind. Remember when they told us the way to the hearts of terrorists was jobs? Ya, those guys. Our liberal education system has stopped teaching our kids correct US and world history. Combine that with removal of public monuments and what are you going to get?

Think that’s insane? Why on earth is there a Holocaust museum? A museum to WWII? There are some ‘displays’ inside both you will never unsee. Why are they there? To remind us of true evil, laws, no laws, wishes, and dreams will never make true evil go away. You cannot ever forget where we’ve come and more importantly what we’ve done, both good and evil, to get here.

No borders? No one is consciously that stupid. You cannot even feign to be a sovereign nation without boundaries that you PROTECT.
