The Peasant Takes Medical Leave & Happy Thanksgiving!

My grand readers, your favorite Peasant is taking
next week off in order to undergo a medical procedure,
one that all people, especially men, once they reach
then pass the age of 50 should have. On Tuesday,
November 22 at 1:30 PM, I shall undergo a
colonoscopy, my first ever. As I must take my "prep"
medicine the day before, I shall be indisposed for that
entire day, and as this will be the week of Thanksgiving,
I shall not be posting anyway.

This is not as arduous a procedure as some might think,
and it is vital in order to ascertain and maintain sound
intestinal and colorectal health. If one or more polyps
turn up, the doctor can remove them at once and do tests
on them to look for any signs of malignancy. If any
are detected, treatment can swiftly take place, and will
be beneficial in stopping colon cancer in its starting
stages. Colon cancer is the second most deadly type of
cancer, but if caught early it is one of the most treatable.
That is why having a colonoscopy is so crucial when you
hit 50, and why it's good to have one every five years
hence, as this is the time when people are most likely
to get this malady.

In the meantime, your faithful Peasant is taking a breather
from the political storms, whipped by the winds of
public opinion and polls, fed by the news out of Washington
as well as the capitals of the states and the cities dotting
the country from coast to coast. But worry not; I shall return
very soon, when we shall pick up where we're leaving off.

I'll be in good hands and in good shape! As Sean Hannity
likes to say, "Let not your heart be troubled."

Be back soon! Love, joy, and a Happy Thanksgiving to you!
And oh, do we have much to be thankful for! We turned back
Hillary Clinton in the presidential election and we helped
the Republicans to hold both chambers of Congress, as well as
hold onto the Republican-held governorships and state
legislatures around the country. Conservatism is alive and well,
and along with it our liberty!

With the presidential election now concluded, and the outcome
in our favor, let us my dear and loyal readers savor this golden
moment and join together in celebration!

Donald Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in the presidential show-
down, and the Obama-Clinton socialist hex of the past nearly eight
years! Trump, with the help of so very many cheesed-off Americans
overcame the vicious, hateful name-calling of the left-wingers;
their pom-pom girls and boys in the lamestream media backing them
up, the political prognosticators and pundits across the political spec-
trum proclaiming en masse that Trump never had a chance; the
Republican National Committee turning its back on Trump,
begrudging him funds to help get his message out; so many more
obstacles and challenges in addition to win the big prize!
And this being the Veterans Day holiday weekend, what a gift
to our long-suffering military people, past and present, who have
been given the back of the current regime's hand all this while!
And Veteran's Day greetings to you, our brave warriors!

Lord knows Donald Trump wasn't our ideal candidate, my grand
readers; your skeptical Peasant has voiced his concerns on this
blog, and I couldn't bring myself to endorse Trump in this
election, but I urged you all to vote for our country and elect
a candidate who would be much more likely to help us to turn
her and both her political and economic fortunes around as
opposed to a technocratic elitist who would double down on
the debilitating policies of her predecessor. And you delivered
the knockout punch to clinch the victory for Donald Trump
and for We the People! Congratulations and heartfelt gratitude
to you!

We and Donald Trump are the Chicago Cubs of politics; as the
Cubs went to the World Series for the first time in a lifetime
and won it for the first time in two lifetimes, we upset the
formidable and forboding forces which stood in our way!
2016 is the year of miracles!

Thank you all for your hard work, your prayers, your financial
contributions to the campaign, your letters to the editors of
your local newspapers and national publications, e.g. The Wall
Street Journal and such, and most importantly, your votes! We
showed the world what people can do when they are motivated,
informed, and determined to establish and maintain the govern-
ment they demand, ignoring the odds and the dangers! This is
what the United States is all about! This is what the American
people, the "can do" people, are all about! Excelsior!

The Peasant's Take on This Election

Your grateful Peasant is so happy that you, my fabulous readers,
have so warmly received my dear friend and fellow conservative
April Dubis, enjoying her guest post so! This is the first time that
I have had a guest write a piece on this blog, and your favorite
Peasant will certainly bring April back in the future, and shall
have some other fellow conservatives to share their thoughts
and observations on the political scene as well!

In the meantime, as today is indeed our D-Day, as dear April
put it so aptly in her post, and the polls will remain open for a
little while more, my message regarding the election is this:
Donald Trump is, to be sure, not an ideal candidate for the
presidency, I cannot excuse let alone condone the outrageous
things he has said, and his lack of study on some very crucial
issues has been mind-numbing. But at least he is not rotten to
the core like Hillary Clinton, just megalomaniacal. Yes, that
can certainly pose some problems down the road, but Trump
at least seems to have an appreciation for our Constitution
and its enumeration of rights and restraints, especially restraints
on our government, while Clinton has the same disdain for same,
just like the current occupant at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, and will
certainly pick up where he will leave off when his final term
concludes in January. And for all the despicable things that Trump
has said about women, at least he never tried to have his way
with them as Clinton's husband has done --- and let's not
forget that Hill has enabled Bill to cut a swath through not a small
quanitity of women in their shared political career by heading
up their "bimbo eruption" team, designed to discredit and
disgrace his victims. I cannot endorse Trump, with all his baggage,
but I do endorse our great country and therefore urge support
for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton for the president. Trump
may help it, Clinton would definitely harm it!

Now a word for my fellow Wisconsinites: U.S. Senator Ron Johnson
is again facing the man he defeated for the senate seat he has so ably
held for a full term. We elected Johnson in 2010 and he has represented
us and our dear Badger State so wonderfully, working for a fairer, saner
tax code, loosening the regulatory noose around the neck of all
businesses big and small, and to make a favorable economic climate
to enable the creation of jobs for displaced workers in Wisconsin
and throughout the country. One must, however, credit his opponent
former Sen. Russ Feingold with having the chutzpah to challenge
Sen. Johnson for that very seat; after being a rubber stamp for the
Obama regime with his votes for passage of Obamacare (and
parroting Obama's lies as to its alleged benefits), the so-called
stimulus packages which only benefited Obama's big business cronies,
not the beleaguered employees in their corporations, the outrageous
expenditures which made for not only larger budget deficits but
record-setting national debt, presently approaching the $20 trillion (!)
mark. And Feingold claimed that he wanted to shrink these two
things; pie crust promises, just like with Obama! Our choice is clear,
your enthusiastic Peasant enthusiastically endorses Se. Ron Johnson
for another term in the U.S. Senate.

And don't forget to support all the fine conservative candidates on the
downticket in your states and communities! We must elect as many
constitution-minded conservatives as we can to turn our country
around and restore our liberty and prosperity, and to leave our
children and coming generations a land where they can follow
their dreams instead of the dictates of elitist politicians and
untouchable, ensconced, unaccountable bureaucrats behind the
pols. If you haven't been to your polling places yet GET DOWN
THERE NOW!!! Our country and our way of life is at stake.
Good luck everyone!

Guest Post by April Dubis: D-Day

November 8th is our country's D-Day. No, we are not storming
the beaches at Normandy again, but never before has there been
so much at stake in recent history for both our nation and even
the world.

It is common knowledge that Hillary Clinton is anti-life, anti-family,
and may well get us into a nuclear war in the Middle East. She has
also proven by her plethora of repeated scandals that she is not to be
trusted, not to mention hold the office of the presidency.

Clinton advocates the merciless and horrific killing of innocent
unborn babies through abortion at any time during pregnancy.
If these voiceless little ones have no chance of survival through
these unjust and evil laws that sanction their deaths then what's
to protect anyone who is less than her ideal? A person's age,
fitness, race, creed, ideology, etc. could then be used as an
excuse to declare then expendable. This is not far fetched!

The former First Lady, acceding to the LGBT mentality, again
reflects that she has no respect for the natural law as given by our

Sadly, Clinton has not minced words regarding the use of nuclear
warheads being used as a first strike against Iran and Russia.
Does she want to ignite World War III?

Regarding the decisive, far-reaching consequences of Hillary being
elected, an item of crucial importance here: According to Texas
State Supreme Court Justice Don Willet, "When Americans vote in
November they're choosing not just a president but thousands of
presidential appointments, including hundreds of life-tenured judges."
And these judges presiding over the lower federal courts have many
more cases than does our U.S. Supreme Court (not to mention that
several Supreme Court justices will be appointed as well!). Do we
trust Hillary to make these crucial appointments? I think not!

Clinton is a woman without scruples or even a heart. Case in point:
the infamous Benghazi debacle. Those familiar with the tragic story
know that Ambassador Christopher Stevens made repeated pleas
over 600 (!) for months, begging for more and better security. With no
response forthcoming from then Secretary of State Clinton the
Pentagon stepped in and importuned her to authorize special U.S.
forces to be deployed (they were ready and able!). She coldly
declined, leaving Stevens, along with U.S. Foreign Information Service
Officer Glen Smith, with security specialists Glen Doherty and
Tyrone Woods perish in the eight-hour siege at our compound.
Then, for bad measure she lied to their family members as to how
and why they died, as well as to the entire nation. Is this someone
we want for President? I think not! Basically, one's life isn't worth
a dime to Clinton unless it is valuable to her agenda!

There is so very much more that I could say regarding Clinton's sordid
past, not to mention her husband Bill's past. Suffice it to say that all
this and more can be found on the Internet.

Finally, as William Wilberforce, who bravely spent thirty years leading
the battle to abolish slavery in his native England once said, "You may
choose to look the other way but you can never say again that you did
not know." We do in fact know that Jesus Christ said, "The truth shall
set you free." Free from lies, corruption, selfishness, violence, fear, and
all manner of evil.

May we as a countryonce again welcome God and His life-giving
principles as our American forefathers espoused. And may we all
pray for a good outcome to this most decisive and crucial election
and vote according to enlightened consciences. May the best man win!

A Special Announcement

My grand readers, your favorite Peasant has a special
treat in store for you! I was asked by a dear friend and
fellow conservative if I could let her be a guest on this
blog, posting a special piece to share regarding the fast-
upcoming election (next week!). We shall be getting
together before the big day, Tuesday November 8, to
put her essay forth for your perusal and edification.

This friend of mine, April Dubis, like me, is a conserva-
tive independent, disenchanted with the Republican Party
and for the same reasons, Catholic, pro-life, and very
concerned about the election upon us and the course
our country is on and its prospects for changing course
and trajectory. I think you're going to find that her
thoughts will resonate with you, and that you will get
much from what she has to say! And, she is an avid reader
of this blog as well!

Anyway, we'll be posting before November 8, but we're
not sure which day, so check back here every so often
between now and the day. Thank you, my beloved readers,
for welcoming April! God bless!
