As someone who has been on both sides of the political spectrum, I try not to generalize and encourage others not to do so either. When we make commentary about any one section of the community, there is for some a need to put them in a box. I get that if you are trying to discover trends about a demographic, but people are really not that simplistic, thankfully.
In the last few days I have become aware of syndrome I have decided to call CCP Syndrome. The symptoms are glaring but alas, do not fear, there is a free cure available. There is a need for both Democrats and Conservatives to think of “the other side” in a particular way in order to feel better about their choices/assumption etc.
The media knows it and actually relies on it to spread their toxic rhetoric and so do the Political Parties. Liberals are all one way and Conservatives another and one has to conform to a tick box list in order to somehow fit in or perhaps be thought of in a certain way. I call this cookie cutter politico syndrome and sadly we all conform to it, some even unconsciously.
The scary element in all of this is that it’s actually a method of control and is fixed into our thinking cycle. For some it's more about who they aspire to be than who they actually are. As someone that identifies as Republican there is actually an expectation attached to that title. Some of those things include that I will be pro life, pro death penalty, pro guns, anti immigration etc, which are all seen as core components of Conservatism.
Whether I identify one way or another should never mean totally conforming to fit a certain agenda. I never trust anyone who conforms 100% to party lines as it denotes compliance and not consideration. Our free thinking should extend to our political ideologies and we should feel free not to be automatons and think for ourselves.
The Media and the parties would not have you think this way or they would totally lose their control. The myth therein lies in how we are actually made to feel less of something for choosing to disagree with any particular component of the ideology. We should never be taking the watered down opinions of other and asserting them as our own, unless we really fully agree.
As I said there is a cure for CCP syndrome and it is very simple and something I have said before. Question and analyze everything, from whichever direction it comes from. All policy, ideology or opinion is formulated not including your perspective in the equation and your analysis is actually the end result. Your perspective.
Being told what to think and what to believe is highly suggestive and very easy to miss. Is it MK Ultra mind control?? Well in a way yes, but only if you let it be. The Media nowadays is sadly not about the facts, but merely opinion paraded as fact, paid for by whoever wants to control the tone of the information provided.
During the election this was highly visible from the particular direction a News Outlet took in their reporting of alleged facts. Sources say or we can now reveal have become the buzz words of media and it's a cop out for actually basing a story on the facts. Disturbing right?? That’s not even the most concerning part. They print such rot and hope the person can’t afford to sue and this has replaced having to use the word “Allegedly”
Sources revealed today that Xander Gibb weighs 100lbs and is going to become a Hollywood Heartthrob imminently. I even have a meme to prove it so it must be true right? It is so easy to be drawn in and to be told what to think and how to be, but you can break the chain. Take a step back, remember you are an individual and are not required to confirm to consider yourself a true anything unless it is a XanFan
Love & Peace
Cruelty begets it's offspring's war, time to show violence the door, If not now then tell me when, will we be able to Make America great again?
"Leave My President Alone"
Ever wake up and wonder were you are? Have to scratch you head at the Bizzaro-burgh that you are living in right now? Right is wrong and black is white and dare to question it or you are racist, even when Race is not involved in the topic? Media claims authentication based on “an unnamed source” and that we don’t really need evidence of collusion because that Donald Trump is clearly a bad guy, right?? Wrong!
Of course it’s not wrong you say, it must be true. I’ve seen him on the TV saying “You’re fired” and he did say those bad things about women that were recorded without his permission in a private conversation? He’s on Twitter sharing his opinions about others, thats not what Twitter is for is it? Isn’t it for sharing cute cat pics and recipes for cake and dip etc?
Everyone knows he’s on Putin’s pay roll and he hates Jews and Blacks and will end up putting the gays in internment camps and don’t even get me started on how he hates Muslims. It says it in the papers so it must be true and even fellow Republicans hate him, so he really must be bad and he had 2 scoops of ice cream which means he is greedy too. Rosie hates him and she’s the epitome of all that is good right??? WRONG!!!!
Wake up America and smell the damn covfefe because I am here to tell you that you are being hoodwinked and allowing the Deep State Revenge for Hillary losing, to brainwash you into total submission. To accept everything the media, any media tells you, without researching it further is the most dangerous thing you could ever do. It is not only dangerous but also UN-American and irresponsible to boot.
?Donald Trump spent a long time working on the TV Persona of this tough, no nonsense CEO who would cut you down and eviscerate you for merely looking the wrong way and was clearly very good at it. I totally get why some people may think that was the true Donald Trump, but lets be realistic, he played a role so well that Middle America found it difficult to separate the man from the myth.
I get it as I was a #NeverTrumper, right up until the point he won the nomination, and then something shifted for me. It was time to see beyond the veneer of the TV Donald Trump and look at the man behind the mask. Was he perfect? No. Was he an experienced Politician? Hell no, but lets face it we let a community organizer mess things up and sell us down the river for 8 years, and this guy had at least run a successful business.
He won the election fair and square and the least every freedom loving American owes him is a chance to do the job before writing him off totally in order to be seen as cool or just to save face. Many have done that and based upon the performance to date, on many levels he is doing a great job. Jobs are up, we are safer here than we have ever been and he seems to be doing what he promised to do on the campaign trail.
Unproven accusations of Russian collusion were investigated and owning a case of Stolichnaya does not a colluder make. Exercising his right and doing the best for America, he fired Jim Comey and rightly so. Even the recent hearings proved that Comey had been manipulated by AG Lynch to let Hillary of the hook and that he had let his political leanings guide him more than the law of the land.
They couldn’t prove Mr. Trump colluded with the Russians, and even though there was a wealth of evidence that Hillary had, Uranium sales, $500000.00 in speaking fees for rapey Bill and donations the Clinton foundation etc. One only sees what ones eyes want to see. Bob Mueller then comes along with more invented charges of Obstruction of Justice, based upon Comey’s accusations.
So let’s get this straight, Mueller advises Trump to fire Comey, his mentor and then wants to investigate him for firing Comey as obstruction of justice. Is this still America and if it is, why are some of the American Public too stupid to see that this is the biggest Witch Hunt in this great nation ever? Wake up America before it’s too late.
This is before we even get to Steve Scalise & others being shot as a direct result of trickle down hate towards Mr. Trump and Conservatives in general. Kathy Griffin and her severed Trump Head effigy, Shakespeare in the park depicting Trumps Assassination, Snoop Dogg depicting Trumps Assassination. Madonna saying she wants to blow up The Whitehouse. No you’re right there is no connection whatsoever. Nothing to see here.
If you are stupid enough to be spoon fed this constant train of lies and deception from the left, you are part off the problem and guilty by your inaction. Even Nancy Pelosi after initially saying some positive things about us all coming together blamed Trump for Scalise being shot as did Mark Sanford. We have to stop the rot before its too late and stop constant barrage of lies and the never ending accusations and attacks directed at our President.
I don’t care if you like Trump or not. Let’s face it we all had to tolerate Obama for the sake of America and wanting Mr. Trump to fail is wanting America to fail. His failure is America’s failure too. We have to stop this now and make America great again while we still can. It’s up to you. Do you want to me a mindless automaton, questioning nothing or will you be like me, A Patriot and fight for this great country, the greatest there ever was?
What will you do???

Xander Gibb has written for many publications and writes with an unapologetic response to the world around.
A Challenge to All Americans who still challenge The Presidency of Donald Trump, to set aside their preconceived ideas and prejudices!
I write to you at a time when we all should be celebrating and looking forward to better times. We have just inaugurated a brand new President, for four years, and even though some are unwilling or unable to accept it, the fact he is President remains unchanged.
The Presidential Race was hard and for most of us went on far too long. The Media decided to support Hillary Clinton, even to the extent of lying about Donald Trump. Accusation after accusation, without evidence or base. His every commentary twisted and taken out of context and whilst he was far from perfect, he did not deserve that level of response.
Whilst Hillary was off conspiring with George Soros and accepting donations from any who felt they could gain influence over and above that which she gave whilst in the State office, Mr Trump campaigned tirelessly. All of this was under the eyes of then President Barack Obama who failed to ensure the cleanliness of his staff, even to the point of allowing them to commit treasonous acts.
In the debates Hillary said that anyone unwilling to accept the outcome of the election was a threat to democracy, unless it was her of course. When it was revealed that Mr Trump had won, she beat her staffers & got drunk, again. Her whole strategy was that people wanted more of the same and it became her downfall. America didn't want a white Obama lady in a pantsuit, they wanted change.
After all was said and done Donald trump won the election and chaos for The democrats ensued. Every excuse for him winning was brought to table including the Russians, cheating, global warming, flexible rostering & witchcraft. Even though the Electoral College votes may have sealed the deal, it was an accepted part of the process, until it went badly for Hillary.
Even when Jill Stein from The Green Party raised funds for recounts and didn't spend all of the money on recounts it highlighted more votes for The Donald. It also highlighted more dishonesty from Hillary's team including voter fraud, double voting, dead people voting, illegals voting etc. Still the democrats were unwilling to accept the results.
Broadway then got in on the act (no pun intended) when the cast of Hamilton decided to give unsolicited statements from the stage to Mike Pence and his family when they attended the theater. I was left wondering when people paid to entertain us were given license to share their political theories when we had paid them to well... perform.
Hollywood then stepped in, as if they have some amazing power over us. Strikes were threatened, but were really empty in all honesty. None of the celebs who threatened to leave if Mr Trump won actually did, they just chose to whine about it, to the public's chagrin. Chelsea Handler who had threatened to move to Spain blamed The Kardashian Sister for Mr Trumps meteoric win as the USA was now a Reality Show.
Even Meryl Streep or Meryl Sheep as I call her now decided to use her acceptance speech to trash Mr Trump. Many switched off and whilst some applauded you could see a lot of the audience were uncomfortable. She took the opportunity to talk about Mr Trumps alleged attack on a disabled person, yet failed to mention the disabled person attacked by 5 black youths just days before. Streep throat indeed cough cough!
When President Obama was elected in 2008 I was still a Democrat. I remember the ideology of wanting The President to fail meant that you wanted the USA to fail. I am sitting here wondering what has changed? There was a lot of opposition to Barry & his Bodgers. The world was going to end, we would all be forced to become Muslims, and Republicans would be persecuted. None of it happened apart from the fact that Republicans were persecuted by his admin. Thank you IRS!
Obama in his last days freed drug dealers, thugs & trans traitors just for being trans. He ignored those with legitimate need for sentence commutation, like Kristian Saucier. Kris was jailed for a yr, lost his job, his pension and his family, a wife and a young child were left destitute. He took 6 selfies on a 40 yr old submarine and as Mr Trump said, anyone who wanted pics had them years ago.
Saucier's family lost their life savings paying for his defense in what was clearly a political imprisonment. Hillary walked free and ran for president for doing a thousand times more, but no, not even a pardon for this young man. While he rots in federal prison and his family suffer daily. If this is how we treat Patriots who serve our country I wonder why the hell they bother #FreeKrisSaucier.
I particularly enjoyed President Trumps speech especially the part were he reiterated that his administration was for the people, yet still some of the people object. At a time when America needs to come together united to begin afresh and correct the wrongs of the previous administration, the divide widens further.
My heart is sad that so many women marched against Mr Trump for comments he made in private 11 years ago. How about marching for the women in the Arab world who are stoned and have their clitoris removed or the gays who are thrown of roofs every day. These same people who commit such atrocities funded Hillary and you choose to march against Mr Trump? Wake the hell up America.
This talk of The Resistance movement is indeed futile and farcical. So what you marched, you protested, you tweeted your anger about the lack of free tampons and guess what? Donald Trump is still President and will be for the next four years and possibly eight.
Those who oppose Donald trump as far as I can see have two realistic choices. Suck it up and work together to make America great again and if you are still unhappy in four years, then vote someone else in. You may be very surprised in that President Trump might do such a good job you will want him for another four years.
Your other choice is to opine and complain for four years to anyone who will listen, but as I said this is futile. What change can you effect by working against the new President? He will still be the President after your march, tirade,complaint etc is over.
We need to come together and stop with the negativity as that will only benefit those who's m.o is to divide us further. We need to stop listening to the dishonest media who are paid to increase the divide and provide opinion rather than fact to sell their gutter rags. You are better than to be used as a tool of divide and allowing yourself to be brainwashed further is most concerning.
Whilst I am one of President Trumps fiercest champions I will also be one of his fiercest critics. He has set a challenge for himself and us to make America great again and I for one will be continuing to see he is charged with that task. As a commentator my job is to comment on all aspects of his Presidency, not just the good bits.
It is no secret that I did not like Mr Trump when he first ran for President. I based my perception on his TV persona which was nothing more that a character. Once he won the nomination to be the candidate I decided to put my preconceived ideas aside for the good of my country. I actually grew to like and respect this man once I separated him from his TV persona. I challenge you to do the same.
Love and Peace, Xan
It’s no secret that I have evolved politically over the last few years, but sadly some have stayed chained in the bondage of Liberalism and the lies attached to it. Whilst I never considered myself a Liberal when I was a Democrat, I was fraught with contradiction and control. I'd frankly had enough of Obama’s failed rhetoric and inability to make any lasting difference.
Changing allegiances will never make you popular or even enable you be trusted easily. Lets face it I was viewed as too liberal to be conservative by my conservative friends and clearly a total conservative by my liberal friends. Whilst I consider myself to be a conservative in all honesty I am still just me trying to make a difference and make America a better place.
I always believed that this would only be achieved by left and right working together and forging a point to grow from based upon the things we do agree on. Division is only achievable by allowing our differences in opinion to tear through any chances of growth and development. I do fundamentally believe some really do want there to be divide and are too unreachable, but most are not.
In the run up to the Presidential elections things became very difficult for me politically once more with the division within The GOP and in the country as a whole. Sadly that grew and the uncertainty that ensued was palpable. Regardless of everything else I do believe that God is in control and even with the fact that humanity is flawed we will get by.
The race ensued and it got down to four, two on each side and in all any honesty I didn’t feel particularly warm and supportive towards any of them. I don’t think I could ever support a Democrat in office again, I mean look at the mess Obama has made of the USA in less than 8 years. His policies were quick fixes and his promises constantly failed and clearly "Teflon Trouser Suit Girl" Hillary would basically grab his policies and eek them out for another four years and then blame the previous incumbent.
When it got down to a two horse race and it was clear that Donald Trump would be the GOP nominee I was forced to make a choice. I could, like so many of my conservative friends chuck a hissy fit because Cruz had not won the nomination and support a 3rd party runner. On reflection that was really never an option because a vote for anybody but Trump was a vote for Hillary, so totally defeated the object.
I also heard some were saying they would vote for Hillary as a protest as Trump wasn’t even a Conservative. I don’t ever recall him professing he was and as for questioning whether he was still a Democrat, he was running on the GOP docket. What more do you need, for him to get a tattoo with GOP on his arm? In a way it made things very simple and I quickly came to a conclusion.
It was clear that it was imperative to love America more than I disliked elements of the candidate. Is Trump perfect? Heck no but neither was any other candidate and let’s face it, Jesus wasn’t running this year. When I looked at Hillary and Donald side by side, based upon track record, Donald did look so bad. There have been many things Trump has said that I have found abhorrent, but in fairness, to quote an 11 yr old “I’d rather deal with a few bad words than get bombed or my head cut off”
Hillary would do or say anything to get elected and she carries a level of culpability regarding Benghazi. Having the blood of my fellow countrymen on your hands is a definite turnoff for me and that’s before we get to the EMail stuff. Then there are four hundred million more reasons not to want Teflon Tessie Clinton as our POTUS. Yes I am referring to the fact that her department arranged for $400 Million taxpayer dollars to be given to our sworn enemies. You know the ones who want to kill us and our allies.
Wake up America, Hillary and Bill have been in bed with terrorists for years and put personal profit above the safety of people like you and me. She has already indicated she wants to change freedom of speech laws and another Clinton in the Whitehouse is one too many for me.
When I started to go public about choosing to support Donald Trump, I was subject to many forms of abuse. Being a Talk Show Host I am thankfully pretty thick skinned. It started slow with people retweeting negative things I had said about Trump from 3 and 4 years ago. Big deal, I chose to comment on what I perceived to be negative comments from Trump.
Then people unfollowed me for my Political Position. People I had known for 30 yrs blocked me for supporting him. I was told I had no self respect if I supported Trump which in all honesty was so far from the truth. I was insulting the LGBT Community by supporting him. Get real! The Gays have far more to worry about with Hillary. She took donations from countries that KILL gays and throw them off roofs for merely being gay. Her support for this community only occurred to get the gay vote.
I had quite a public slanging match with the Editor of The Huffington Post, Noah Michelson who stated he didn’t know of anyone gay supporting Trump. TA DA, and I’m not even a Republican. He went into such a tirade of vitriol criticizing me, my journalism and my right to an opinion. It was like being back in highschool, you know when that one friend says you can’t be friends with someone they dislike. His commentary was so abhorrent even friends of mine from the board of Verizon who own the Liberal Rag where disgusted with him.
When I pointed this out he asked me if that was a threat and quickly backed down. I asked my friends to take no action but they are monitoring the situation. What more can we expect from a professional homosexual who writes such tat as the article below, that encourages gays to stop sleeping with Trump supporters in order to defeat him. Oh yes Noah, that will stop him, keep up that award winning Journalism. Come back Arianna Huffington, all is forgiven
He even went so far as to state that The Huffington Post’s Editorial position was that “Trump is dangerous and must be stopped at all costs” I am sure my friends on The Verizon Board would have concerns with that statement as they are Republicans! Good luck with your little tirade Noah because clearly yours or anyone’s friendship that does not allow for personal perspective, is a friendship not worth having. Bye Felicia!!
In conclusion I want to clarify that point. Anyone who claims to be your friend and does not allow for your own personal political convictions was never your friend in the first place. I am fully ensconced on The Trump Train Thanks so much to my friends for saving me a seat. If my stumping for Trump means you cannot be my friend any longer, adios amigo and good luck helping Teflon Tessie wipe the blood from her hands!
Love and Peace Xan x

In a landmark decision last Friday, SCOTUS (Supreme Court of The United States) voted 5 to 4 in favor of legalizing Same Sex Unions in all 50 states of the United States. A mixed reaction was received from sheer elation to total shock and horror.
Those of you that know me well, will be aware of just how much work I have put into effecting change in the last 25 years for the LGBT Community. For me this ruling should be a landmark in my timeline., as a gay person who believes in equality, however my response was sadly, bitter sweet.
Whilst I am elated that my community will finally have more rights, as a Christian and someone who considers themselves to be so much more than their sexuality, I will not be so easily bought with high priced tokens . It has become clear that not toeing the LGBT line has a price to pay but clearly I lost my fag badge some time ago.
For us to assume that this is a solid victory is nothing short of folly. When the US Government dealt with Civil Partnerships, they could have saved a lot of bad feeling and disharmony by affording exactly the same rights as Marriage, however they didn’t. Please do not delude yourself that the recent ruling is anything to do with equality or truly supporting our community, as the methodology is further evidence of governmental control attempts.
“Oh Xander but we now have full equality under the law”, I hear you say, but sadly we haven't and the cost of this empty gesture has far reaching consequences for us as a nation. If we analyze the rights afforded by Marriage and those of same sex Marriage, we will see they are anything but equal. Employment rights surely needed the most urgent attention as one can still be fired for being gay in some states.
Legalizing same-sex “marriage,” means The State can call upon public officials to preside over ceremonies, order public schools to teach its acceptability to children, and punish any state employee who expresses disapproval. One could maybe argue Judges and officials should perform these ceremonies as it is their job, but do we really want anybody to be forced to accept us?
Ministers of Religion could also be forced by Law to perform these ceremonies under penalty of prosecution, even if they do not accept the sanctity of the ceremony. If a heterosexual approaches a Minister of religion to request a Marriage Ceremony be performed and the individual does not attend the church or is not a member of that faith, the Minister may refuse. How is this Equality if people are forced to participate? This is called slavery and no one should be forced to perform a service if they choose not too in these United States.
Christians will now be expected to ignore their conscience and comply or face prosecution. Is this really what we want in order to access our rights and to obtain equality? Is this what I have spent the last 25 years campaigning for? I really think not. If obtaining our rights includes trampling all over the rights of others, what have we really achieved?
Before you say “Xander, it would never happen” I am here to tell you that it already did. Donald and Evelyn Knapp, ordained ministers who own the Hitching Post Wedding Chapel in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho were told they had to either perform same-sex weddings or face jail time and up to a $1,000 fine. Equality is not about my rights being more important than yours, it is about them being the same or that would be privilege. surely? Saying no should be a right for whatever reason, and being forced is slavery.
There is method in the madness here and this is clearly the Government using Same Sex Marriage as a tool of control. Churches that refuse comply as well as being open to prosecution will more than likely lose their Tax Exempt status . If like me you were wondering what the cost is for all of this , you now have the answer. When did our community become the aggressors? Did I miss that memo?
I have defended our rights to the hilt and whilst I will continue to do so, I am really left scratching my head. This really is equality at any price any price and the fact that most won't see that we have been used, is the saddest part of all . Whilst division is never totally unavoidable, this was clearly premeditated and I cannot support or celebrate slavery. We all deserve equality under the law, but forcing others to comply or celebrate it is not what I signed up for. We need to see beyond the veneer of gestures of this kind and hold on tight. This is a very slippery slope!
Are you here to be liked or to make a difference?
Love and Peace, Xander.
