So what is it, do you suppose, that would convince someone whose only obvious talent involves being able to dribble a basketball that they are somehow qualified to be President of the United States?  Now the only reason I ask such a ridiculous question is because rumor now has it that that well-known political genius, and somewhat accomplished basketball player, LeBron James, is now said to be actually entertaining the notion of  running for president in the not too distant future. And wouldn’t it be rather hilarious to hear James attempt to articulate his grand vision for America?

So anyway, apparently some guy by the name of Skip Bayless, who is co-host of something called Undisputed on FS1, recently said that a source close to James told him that James has “seriously considered” running for President.  As many may have noted the basketball player/wannabe politician has grown more politically active of late. He began speaking out on social justice issues shortly after black teenager, Trayvon Martin was shot back in 2012.  And it was in 2016 that James campaigned for the then Democrat presidential nominee, and eventual two time loser, Hitlery.

There’s no doubt that James is likely the most well-known active athlete in American sports and a report that he was considering running for president, by itself, isn’t all that shocking.  One might read more into Bayless’ report than there is, considering that the source is said to be “close” to James, or one could look at the fact that the report came from this guy, Bayless, who is apparently someone given to hyperbole and attention grabbing statements, and not take it seriously at all.  Personally, I’ve never heard of this Bayless guy so I have no idea whether to take it seriously or not.

Now I have no doubt that James would have the necessary name recognition as well as the financial backing that would permit him to make a far better run at the presidency than half the current Democrat field, should he ever decide to do so.  But let’s be serious, say what you will about Donald Trump, you have to ask yourself if the country is actually ready for a grade-school educated president whose only skillset involves throwing a ball through a hoop?  Hopefully we haven’t yet, as a country, arrived at point where we would treat this as being anything other than a bad joke.

But it really wouldn’t surprise me if this were true. After all, most sports figures and Hollyweird types desperately want to be recognized for their ‘intellect.’  And James does fancy himself a bit of an intellectual, but the guy didn’t even go to college. The ego of some people is laughable.  He should be satisfied that he has been able to make millions dribbling a ball and putting it through a hoop, anything more is simply delusions of grandeur.  To be president requires two fundamental qualifications, an IQ larger than your shoe size and a skill set that goes beyond playing a game.

No doubt James is an exceptionally gifted individual who has been able to use his incredible physical gifts to become famous and make a boatload of money.  However, in no way is this indicative of his mental capacity.  And it’s his rather sizable ego that leads him to delude himself into seeing himself as capable of being president. He would be the president with the least intelligence that the nation has ever had. But of course it’s never going to happen because the American voter would very quickly realize that the man is simply put, just not that bright.  He should stick to basketball.

These days it’s every elitist who becomes a social justice warrior who thinks they’re a political expert able to govern.  And I think it safe to say that most, and that would include James, are clueless when it comes to possessing any amount of knowledge regarding our Constitution or free-market/capitalism, other than how it allowed them to get very rich.  Sorry LeBron, but you need to stick to putting balls through hoops. His athletic prowess, notwithstanding, doesn’t come close to making him politically astute enough to lead more than a dozen like-minded men on a basketball court.

Sports and entertainment celebrities, all too often, think they have some sort of a ‘bully pulpit’ simply because of all the attention they receive and that it somehow translates into their opinions on politics being relevant and themselves considered enlightened by their fans or even the general public.  James is a moron but that doesn’t disqualify him from running for President.  He’s also a dumbass but that too doesn’t disqualify him from running for President.  As proof of that I would simply point to the majority of those currently vying to see who takes on President Trump.

Now I don’t think one has to be a career politician in order to run, I do think it’s preferable if one is not.  Case in point would be Donald Trump.  But it’s at the very least that one should be a well-rounded and fairly educated person, something that James most definitely is not.   A degree in business or perhaps in economics or, as a reasonable substitute, a lengthy experience in those fields is, I think, a must.  Which would disqualify those in the entertainment business since most of them barely made it through high school, or in sports where most have a degree in basket-weaving.

But James, like every other American, has the right to run.  Although he’d have much better luck doing so as a Democrat since the qualifications tend to be considerably less stringent and run the gamut from being a guy who got away with murder, aka Ted Kennedy, to a guy who was nothing more than community agitator, aka Barry ‘O’.  And where one simply needs to promise all manner of free stuff, welcome any illegal who wants to come here, and promise any woman who wants an abortion she can have one, she just needs to say the word and, poof, it’s like it never even happened!

So I guess there’s only one thing left to say.  And that would be to tell old LeBron to please run, America needs a good laugh and he’d be just the guy to make it happen.  Oh, and he shouldn’t let those pesky naysayers try to talk him out of it, if those who make up the current batch of Democrat contenders can run, then he most certainly needs to give it a shot.  He needs to throw that hat into the ring, or that ball through the hoop.  He needs to show us what he’s got, if he’s so sure.  He needs to put up, or shut up, or stick to that which he does best, playing a kid’s game for big bucks.



I’m never quite sure what it is that those on the left hope to accomplish with their never-ending attempts to compare Republicans to Hitler.  Every Republican president that I can remember has been compared to Hitler, and now that includes Trump.  And it’s not just the crazy leftists here at home.  For instance, it was as recently as this past Thursday on the international version of the Communist News Network, (CNN), that we heard from former Mexican President Vicente Fox who actually said that in his addressing the Republicans in Philadelphia, President Donald Trump reminded him “of Hitler addressing the Nazi party.”  Now as I am quite certain Fox is nowhere near old enough to have witnessed such an event as it actually occurred, I’d be interested to know exactly what it is that he bases such a comparison on.

What follows here is a partial transcript of Fox’s bizarre attempt to prove himself to be nothing more than yet another hapless leftwing malcontent who seems to operate under the rather misguided notion that the American people have absolutely no right to be selective about whom it is that we allow into our country:

CNN: Do you get a sense, though, that it’s the U.S. president who us driving events and Mexico’s president finds himself a prisoner of them?

FOX: Well, that much and that part yes. When I saw today’s gathering of the Republican party retreat and Trump being there reminded me of Hitler addressing the Nazi party. And I think it’s important to remind to congressmen from the Republican party that above all on their responsibilities is their own conscious  —

CNN: I’m going to interrupt you. Forgive me. You are comparing the current U.S. president to a man who exterminated millions of people? Really?

FOX: Not in that sense. I’m comparing him in the sense of in the way he is a populist. Of everything that he said in this retreat is pure populism. Making America great, first let him demonstrate that he can do that. Number two, when he says jobs for everybody, what he says, business for everybody, I mean his declarations, declarations, his screeds and his executive orders, and yes I want to remind that a  congressman is obliged with his free conscious to make decisions. He doesn’t have to accept what this guy is proposing to them.

Frankly all of these idiotic Hitler comparisons are really beginning to get more than a little tiresome, regardless of who it is that they may come from.  And those who continue to make them, including this douche bag Fox, accomplish little more than to reveal their ignorance.   And actually, all they really accomplish by making these idiotic comparisons is to trivialize the atrocities committed by one of the most evil dictators to have ever lived.  And in an effort to do what exactly?  Because there is zero resemblance between the 45th president and the German Chancellor who committed genocide.  And really, how many of the leftist imbeciles that those like Fox are speaking to, have any idea who Hitler even was?  I would argue, that with the teaching of history being what it is today, probably not very many.

After all, Hitler hated the Jews, Trump loves Israel.  Hitler invaded his neighbors, Trump is trying to repel his invading neighbors.  Hitler had a massive military, Trump has the scraps leftover by Barry.  Hitler had a cheesy mustache, Trump is clean shaven.  Hitler was a starving artist, Trump is a multi-billionaire. Hitler married a skank, Trump married a beautiful and kind woman.  So I’m just not seeing the comparison.  Hitler deported people to concentration camps to murder them. Trump will feed them, house them, and pay for their transportation back to the Mexican border.  Friendly Border Patrol and ICE agents will send the illegal aliens over the border with a smile and a, “Dios te bendiga. Venga aquí legalmente la próxima vez.” (“God bless you. Come here legally next time.”) There’s a big difference.

The sad fact here is that most of Mexico’s problems are transgenerational. They have, for almost the entirety of their history, been ruled by an elite class that cared very little in real terms for the people (despite their pandering rhetoric). They have produced very little for their people, and as a result, the people have adjusted.  The more entrepreneurial ones recognized that there was tremendous money to be made by selling drugs to wealthy Americans.  However, in order to do that, you had to break the law, and do some rather unsavory things.  When US-trained former commandos got this idea, the cartels were born.  A $40 Billion per year business developed and those men knew how to defend it: infiltrate the government, buy off every official you have to, and kill anyone who won’t take the money.

It’s a huge problem with no real end in sight and trying to clear out these people has become a task no Mexican president has ever been equal to, not even Fox, despite hundreds of millions of dollars in aid, weapons, training, and other assistance from the US every single year.  I’m willing to give them some consideration but we have our own problems with a fully corrupt government infiltrated by a criminal enterprise (Soros’ network of globalist radicals) and with, over the last eight years, corruption running all the way up to the presidency.  Whether those south of the border realize it or not, Mexico needs Trump. There are two swamps in need of being drained: one in DC and the other in Mexico City.  And the sooner the leaders of Mexico come to grips with that fact, the better things are going to be in both countries.
