“Where the heck did all of these people come from Stella?” “I don’t know Sam. The caterer says we’re running out of canapés and there aren’t enough tables, chairs, place settings, food and drinks for all of these extra people.” “How many people were invited to the wedding Stella?” “Amy had 250 on the original invitation list. Then, some people were offended, and there was a lot of pressure to invite more guests. We increased
Try a Little Kindness I don’t like a lot of what I’m seeing in America today. Many of my readers have told me they don’t like what they see either. America has always been a generous country. The American people have always been kind and helpful to one another. Lending a helping hand was common. What is different? What has changed? Why have we let this happen to us? Yes, we can be a strong country
What do our senior citizens owe our children? Should seniors do nice things for their children? Should seniors leave America a better place than they found it? Are any of us responsible for the future? A society grows great when old men plant trees whose shade they know they shall never sit in. This Greek Proverb means many things to many people, but what does this Greek adage really mean? Is there a deeper meaning?
The federal government is dysfunctional, ineffective and bloated. Will you work with me to make America prosperous once more? Will you stand with me to build a bright future for our kids and grandkids? Will you share Our Vision for America? Visualize a heavy golden chain with more than 320 million links stretching from sea to shining sea. Imagine each link is an American in this 320 million plus link chain. Each link holds our country together.
I’ll never forget that sunny Saturday morning, June 7, 1958 when a group of tanned, chiseled candidates stood to take the oath of Officer in the United States Marine Corps. I still remember solemnly swearing with pride to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. That oath was taken with joy in a nation filled with an enthusiastic spirit, full of energy and excitement over the bountiful prospects that lie ahead.
No Time to Lose Do you feel as I do? Are we running out of time? Do you think we are slowly slipping into a “Black Hole” of government corruption, media bias and immorality? We are allowing special interest groups, lobbyists and who knows who, to dictate the course of our republic while our Constitution is shredded and violated every day, week, month and year. Yes, we talk about it, complain about it, write about
Guess what? Lawmakers are breaking more laws and committing more and more violations of our Constitution. Who knew? We all suspected it. I found more violations than a speed trap trooper. How many more times can our sacred document be violated before we throw in the towel and give up? or we fight back to save our liberty? I’m fighting back. Join me. In my first article, "Violating our Constitution", I wrote about the Democrats filing
The Muckster has found more violations to our Constitution. Who knew? I thought we are supposed to be a country of laws. Yeah, right. Laws to govern “We the People” but laws ignored by the lawmakers. Ironic, the way that works, isn’t it? In my last article, "Violating Our Constitution", I wrote about the Democrats lawsuits against President Trump. Now we find old friend, Mister Despicable, has admitted that Obama Health Payments have violated our Constitution.
Democrats are filing lawsuits against President Trump at a fast and furious rate. How much of this is to rev up the base? and how much is justifiable? And just who are the main plaintiffs? The Muckster went to his old friend, Barney Google, to get the answers. I found hundreds of articles proclaiming “Democrats Accuse Trump of Violating Constitution,” or something to that effect. They’re on it. One typical article stated nearly 200 Congressional

How could “Swamp Talk” get any worse. Let’s look and see what’s happening around the country. We have heard Obama telling everyone around the world how great he is and how bad Trump is, well about everything. Obama broke tradition by badmouthing ‘Bush 43’ while he was president. Now he is breaking tradition by badmouthing Trump while he is in office. The GOATs love him for it. But then they are enamored by anything low
Hypocrisy abounds when J-School elites collude amongst themselves while perpetuating the modern day “con.” They write they are sanctioned to expand their First Amendment rights because their idiotic ideology has driven them to new heights of insanity while protecting the destitute downtrodden their absurdity has created. Yes, the elite Shady Stream Media (SSM) are all in on this game of “fool the folks” to purchase money and power for their scumbag politicians. Congress shall make
How many Twitter Followers do you think George Washington had? How many times did he tweet to the newly formed government? Were Alexander Hamilton and James Madison Facebook Friends? Did Thomas Jefferson find LinkedIn a good resource? Can you visualize Ben Franklin sending emails? How many of the founding Founders used Snapchat? In my last article The Declaration of Independence was Published without Social Media, I discussed the resourcefulness of the early American printers. I asked the
Could we exist without the advanced technology of today? Could the Declaration of independence be published without the advances made possible by the American Spirit of our Founding Fathers? Would we be guaranteed life, liberty and ownership? Would we even have social media or the devices we access it on? That all men are by nature equally free and independent and have certain inherent rights, of which, when they enter into a state of society,
We know the American Independence was formally declared on July 2, 1776, a date that John Adams believed would be “the most memorable epocha in the history of America.” On July 4, 1776, Congress approved the final text of the Declaration. It wasn't signed until August 2, 1776. But do we know how they told everyone Independence from England was declared? The technology we take for granted today did not exist then even its most primitive form. Do
It's not uncommon for animals to wander onto the lush grounds of golf courses. A golfer in South Africa came upon an unusual sight on the 14th hole and filmed two of the world's deadliest snakes locked in a confrontation that resembled a spiraling dance. We’ve Seen This Movie Before As I watched this video I couldn’t help but think this is what is happening in our own Swamp inside our own Beltway in Washington,
Just what is this Paris Accord? And why do the GOATs love it so much? This mysterious beast is a non-binding treaty known as the Paris Agreement (French: Accord de Paris). It falls within the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) dealing with greenhouse gases emissions mitigation, adaptation and finance starting in the year 2020. In other words, it’s a method to fleece United States Taxpayers out of a lot of money to pay for a hoax
By TLB Founder & TLBTV Host: Roger Landry (TLB) On this special unscheduled episode of Eradicating Programmed Ignorance we are proud to present another great discussion with Patriot and Author Bill Muckler. Bill is a great friend and long time contributing author to The Liberty Beacon Project. It takes a special individual to not only present the problems, but also the solutions. Those solutions can be found in Bill’s book – 20/20 A CLEAR VISION FOR AMERICA. For far too
The ongoing struggle between the two political parties has deteriorated to all-time low. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any worse, a deranged (a D-Word for Democrats) comedienne (alas, not even a funny one) decided to play ISIS terrorist during a photo shoot. It says a lot about how low the Democrats have gone in their delusional effort to prove they defeated Donald Trump in the last election. No Apology Given And when you
I have been critical of President Obama for his demeaning demeanor while serving as forty-fourth president of the United States of America. He blamed President Bush for every issue that crossed his mind and never took responsibility for the office he sought and was elected for. Now, as past president, he has resorted to an even lower calling: criticizing President Trump as he starts his new presidential term. Never has one of the 43 previous presidents
My mom took me to my first movie in 1939 to see the “Wizard of Oz.” I was too young to understand the subtleties of the movie then, but I sure enjoyed the experience. My dad took me to see my second 1939 movie in 1940: “Gone With the Wind.” Another classic, sandwiched in between them was a movie I didn’t see until many years later: “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington.” There again, I didn’t
I have been saying, and writing, for years that this idiotic political ideology is driving people insane. Perhaps more Americans will come to understand my point of view. In January 2017, Tim Kaine, Democrat candidate for vice president, encouraged Democrats to “fight in the streets” against Trump and Republicans. Before the shooting on Wednesday, June 14, 2017 Rep. Ron DeSantis was asked by James T. Hodgkinson, the shooter, if the people on the field were “Republicans
This is all you need to know about the new and the old health care bills currently being debated in Congress and distorted by the “Shady Stream Media” (SSM). It’s “Obamacare” vs. “Trumpcare” in a Heavyweight Championship Match. If you are a GOAT (Goofy Obama Adoration Team) zealot you hate Trump and despise Trumpcare. If you are a RHINO (Really Hypocritical Incompetent Nettlesome Oaf) you are a racist bigot who despises Obamacare. Who will win?
That’s the question. But can it be accomplished? Let’s look closer. Washington, DC was not built on a swamp. The Muckster is on record to dispel that myth once and for all. Our nation’s capitol was built on hard ground. Yeah, it’s a popular myth, but like Washington, DC, it just isn’t factual. The image that persists is that Washington politicians have developed it into a figurative swamp teeming with all sorts of vermin and
America has been blessed with countless heroes, many of which served in our Armed Forces to defend our freedom, liberty and our Constitution. Thank heavens, American females have stepped up to play important roles as well. While politicians are attempting to convince the American public that women are underpaid, overworked and unappreciated, I must vehemently disagree, as women in America also disagree. American women are strong, responsible, self-reliant and no, they do not see themselves
I love women. I think everyone knows that from what I have written in the past. Take my mom for instance, she never took a day off. She is numbered among the greatest women on this planet. She is a “Marine Mom.” There are none better. Why do women have to take a day off to prove they are somebody we already know? Could there be a political agenda behind this “International Women’s Day?” The
Adult content. Rated X. Take guns away from law-abiding citizens. That will save lives. Oh wait, law-abiding citizens don’t shoot people. Take rape away from law-abiding citizens. Oh wait, law-abiding citizens don’t rape women (or men, to be gender equal). So, what the heck is going on in this country I want to save from evil. Press 2 for . . .

Muckster: I'll answer the question. You want answers? Skeptic: I think I'm entitled! Muckster: You want answers?! Skeptic: I want the truth! Muckster: You can't handle the truth! We live in a world that exists on a changing climate due to many factors such as sunspots, El Niño and La Niña and natural disasters. Environmentalists trying to understand why they are morally, intellectually or scientifically superior to their inferior opponents are, themselves, using climate change as an identity crutch. They
The Lovely Lainey drove me to Cocoa Beach to survey the shoreline. Good news readers. The water has not risen despite the scare tactics and naïve ideology of the leftists. I need to keep my faithful friends updated since my last climate change article entitled “My Glass didn’t Runneth Over” posted on February 18, 2016. My Glass didn’t Runneth Over I received a lot of heat from the GOATS and other climate pseudo-intellectuals denouncing my
Don’t you just love the Democrats. I do. If it wasn’t for the GOATs, I would have nothing interesting to write about. The RHINOs are just too dull and frankly, they don’t do anything. They’re afraid the MSM will call them racists, bigots, homophobes, et al. if they say or do anything. Trump 306 – Clinton 232 Donald Trump won the election by 74 Electoral Votes. The Democrats are in denial stating they won the
My curiosity made me wonder why Hillary Clinton was so invested in the Middle-East and why did she and Obama desperately needed to coverup the death of the four Americans in Benghazi in 2012. One short inquiry led to hundreds of pages of research material. This is the fourth, and I hope, final installment of the Hillary Clinton/Benghazi saga. I know no one will want to read a 77-article series on this subject. I sifted
Okay, I confess. I’m the stupid one. Why did it take the Muckster so long to figure this out? Follow the money? Oil is big money. Follow the big money? Right? Guess what? Natural gas is big money as well. Right again. I was shocked to learn the real story about Benghazi. I thought a short article would convey the expose'. Now I am writing the third story in the Hillary Clinton/Benghazi saga. It just
When the Muckster was a youngster, America was immersed in a World War against fascism. The “Axis Powers” of Germany, Italy, and Japan signed the Tripartite Pact, on September 27, 1940, which became known as the Axis alliance. Even before the Tripartite Pact, two of the three Axis powers had initiated conflicts that would become theaters of war in World War II. Just What the Heck is Fascism Anyway? fascism [fash-iz-uh m] The dictionary definitions are as confused as most
Now we know why Obama sent Susan Rice to the Sunday Morning News Shows. She was sent out to cover up, not the deaths of our four people in Benghazi, but to cover-up the planned sarin gas in Syria. Of course, the upcoming election was an important consideration as well. It would be tough to even convince the GOATS to vote for someone who was planning to gas little children to depose a dictator. Hillary
Folks, you’re not going to believe this one because I did not believe it either, until I researched and studied it for several weeks. The Obama Administration falsely blamed the government of Syria’s Bashar al-Assad for the sarin gas attack that Obama was trying to use as an excuse to invade Syria on August 21, 2013. British intelligence states the sarin gas that was used didn’t come from Assad’s stockpiles. I wrote a 7-article account
I wrote “Judge Gorsuch is Big League” for a March 22nd article. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Neil Gorsuch has a stellar record and his decisions have held up 98 percent of the times they were appealed. His only case that went to the Supreme Court was affirmed. He is a Constitutionalist, not an ideologue. That is exactly what America needs today and in the future. Judge Gorsuch is Big League We
I am so thankful that I know that my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, has me in His hands. Yes I believe and yes, I take my faith very seriously and yes, I worship as that is an uppermost priority in my life. I can cite many instances for why I believe in Christ Jesus and I am sure many of you can as well, however, I am interested in a book and movie “The
Judge Neil McGill Gorsuch was confirmed on April 7, 2017 for a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court, filling a 14-month vacancy. Associate Justice Neil Gorsuch will be 50 years old on August 29th of this year. I estimate he will serve on the Supreme Court until 2050, or until he is 82 years of age. That’s a big win for “We the People” who can look forward to a period of judicial stability in
What exactly is this vetting everyone is talking about? Vet is a verb meaning: make a careful and critical examination of (something). Vetting is a: gerund or present participle. Synonyms are: check, examine, scrutinize, investigate, inspect, look over, screen, assess, evaluate, appraise; informal check out THE BRITISH: investigate (someone) thoroughly, especially to ensure that they are suitable for a job requiring secrecy, loyalty, or trustworthiness. What’s the first Trump proposal? President Trump called for a new
America is divided over many issues, mostly political, but some cultural. Of course, the cultural issues are typically linked to politics such as the phenomenon I have forewarned for more than twenty years: political correctness. Political correctness did not start in the United States in the 1990s. Progressive politicians adopted “political correctness” it from their leader, Karl Marx, in his “Communist Manifesto” written in 1848. Press 1 for English One of the most devious methods
In May, 2016, I wrote an article that is posted on this Web Page entitled: “No Justice for ‘We the People.’” I explained how the nomination of Chief Judge Merrick Garland by President Obama was sent to, and received by, the Senate on March 16, 2016. That was one year ago. The question was, should a sitting president in the last year of his elected term, be allowed to nominate a candidate for the Supreme Court?
The Muckster seems to recall from his college days that “critical thinking” was a desired trait. “Open your minds to all areas of thought,” we were taught. That was in the days of darkness on college campuses. Progressive socialist college professors were not yet fully tenured. Now, in the days of enlightenment, college socialists have a battle cry: That’s what a Columbia University student was telling passers-by on campus as he handed out flyers for
A year ago, I was invited to speak at the campus of Jacksonville University in Jacksonville, Florida. I was greeted and welcomed by Faith Doski, the President of the Republican Club, and several others. They were attired in dresses and business suits or classroom attire. The professionalism, grace and class exhibited by these young students was truly uplifting. Contrast my experience with that of the disgraceful exhibition at the University of California Berkeley campus when
The Muckster is going to make many new enemies with this article, but then again, I may make a few new friends and find some kindred souls who see this Oscar charade for what it really is. This annual phenomenon is watched by millions of people so therefore we should have a smattering of knowledge of how the process works. The work is really done behind the scenes. Just like politics. The onstage presentation is
Okay, I know. I capitalized the “H” in the headline. He is not a deity. There is only One. But the rules for capitalization are supposed to be followed. Much the same as the rule of law and the rules of civility should be followed. Donald John Trump is the 45th President of the United States of America. It’s official. He was inaugurated. He is in the White House. He is the “guy.” Like it
If you read my previous article, “You Might be a GOAT if . . .” you know I am not a fan, nor a worshiper, of the political establishment. I’ve have predictably called out politicians for what they are: career oriented, unethical, self-serving, self-centered, egotistic, narcissistic, immoral, shady, corrupt vermin. They are on the bottom of my list of most despicable lifeforms. My list of bottom feeders is as follows: The final three are interchangeable and
I’ve been reflecting on my calling out politicians for what they are: self-serving, self-centered, egotistic, narcissistic, immoral, shady, corrupt vermin. As you can see I’ve softened my language as I am not referring to them as cockroaches and bedbugs. The cockroaches and bedbugs protested that I was not only racist but a “pestophile” by lumping them in with politicians. This, however, leads one to wonder who put these vermin in office and who gives them
Do You Add Value to America? Your humble correspondent is often asked to write articles for newspaper and magazines, print and online, from time to time. I wrote an article for the Florida Times-Union for a holiday edition. It was an edited selection from 20/20: A Clear Vision for America to explain how Americans can and must find common ground and to learn how to live and work together as one. I was limited to
Some say yes. Some say no. What do you say? Since I have been pushing my readers, family, friends and everyone else I know, or have yet to meet, hard to be a part of my new book 20/20: A Clear Vision for Our Future, I thought it would be interesting to give you a glimpse of what is in the book. The following is an excerpt (still unedited) from Chapter 5 of the original
With the many problems the world is facing, living in the United States of America is certainly a blessing and certainly not the most difficult or harsh human existence. As a young man, I had the opportunity to receive structure and discipline through school and a tour of duty in the United States Marine Corps. Those who do not, miss the opportunity to appreciate what we have. I took pride in learning the Marine Corps
On Tuesday, January 13, 1915, shortly after I published 20/20: A Clear Vision for America, I wrote an article for my website. It was entitled “Liberty and Freedom - A CLEAR VISION.” I sought to share why I wrote 20/20: A Clear Vision for America and where my vision of America came from. Where it was born, and nurtured. I wrote about my experiences as a newly commissioned officer in the United States Marine Corps.
This is the second article (Part 2) of the Great Transition that has so many Americans lathered up. I would report on all the reports, true and false, and the many accusations that have been made about the Trump Transition, but would anyone want to read it? Who Foots the Bill? Here is the Best of the Rest. The media has accused Trump of choosing his own luxury accommodations as a transition base. They say
The Lovely Lainey and I were watching the parade of pundits on the TV news explain to us why certain government cabinet and agency appointments are brilliant or why they are the worst thing that could happen to America. Of course, it is obvious the mainstream media is fully invested in making sure we are all made aware of the coming destruction of America by the new Trump Administration. One expert compared the next four
Believe it or not, this past week never happened. It is the Friday after Thanksgiving Dinner. We are watching the many events and news that never happened. Wow, this stuff is difficult to keep up with. America, and most likely the entire planet, is in the same predicament. What is true? What is false? What is reality? What have we been told that has been totally made up? Fake is the new normal. What got
Yes, it’s that time of year again. The season to be merry. Christmas. But that presents its own special problems. Presents. What do I buy? And how much do I spend?

After all, I am the solutions guy. I’ve made this so easy
Last week, I wrote about who and what we were voting for. The results are in and the majority of electoral votes are designated for the Republican Candidate, Donald J. Trump. America became the real winner. I explained how this election pitted the Elites against Middle America. I identified the players. I am still surprised that so many of the citizenry were enthralled with the elitism and corruption of Hillary Clinton. Surprised that so many
