MUELLER: THE GOOD GUY, THE BAD GUY, THE GOOD GUY

May 31, 2019

Oh, what a roller coaster ride the past 2+ years have been. Apparently, as early as the late spring of 2016, well before the election, Democrats in politics, in the media and in the bureaucracy feared a non-politician attaining the highest office in the land. They shared near panic that a leader introducing the discipline and effectiveness of private business modality could disrupt their happy complacency.

Citizen Trump, candidate Trump and then President Trump repeatedly voiced that he had been spied upon; that he’d been “wire tapped”. He was loudly shouted down by the coordinating cohesive cabal listed above. Nary a day has gone by since the announcement of his candidacy without a publicly spoken or written word of aspersion regarding Donald Trump or an attack on one of his offspring.

Allegations, innuendo and bogus claims about his business dealings and campaign propelled liberal “news outlet” ratings and drew advertisers. Anti-Trump pundits ruled the airwaves. The more negativity expressed, the higher the ratings and the more readers/watchers became stronger in their political divisiveness.

People across the nation became plagued with mental health issues and acted out in ways that required (in some cases) clinical or institutional intervention. Students, having been drummed and drilled with capitalist and conservative invective for 12-16 years, sought safe spaces in which they could cower and commiserate with their like traumatized peers. Pharmaceutical sales for anti-depressants and anti-anxiety compounds skyrocketed.

All the noise and dissent toward the outsider culminated in multiple investigations seeking a crime to hang on to the unwanted candidate/president. From within came the recommendation for a special council of investigators and Robert Mueller was called to lead the unit. While Mueller, himself, was referred to as a Republican, he chose 17 partisan Democrat supporters for the in depth probe for scandal, corruption or any transgression that could lead to a charge of impeachment.

Conservatives in favor of the president called it a partisan Democrat witch hunt. Liberals lauded the investigative team as loyal to the flag and the country. Then came the close of the search. The report conclusions were first summarized by Attorney General William Barr, then the lightly redacted report was made public. The President called it vindication. His opponents called it conclusive of wrongdoing and cover up.

The report, as written, left a great deal to ambiguity. Barr was accused of being in the pocket of the president. Mueller, on the other hand, is a turncoat and maybe was intimidated, coerced or blackmailed in some way for not recommending prosecution or outright encouraging impeachment proceedings by the House.

So, for clarification, on May 29, Robert Mueller stood before a group of reporters and announced his findings. Once again, he left open multiple opportunities to interpret his findings. While legalese is meant to leave no question, the report and Mueller’s synopsis of it merely opened the gates for ongoing partisan bickering over the meanings of his wording. There were phrases such as, “there was insufficient evidence to charge a broader conspiracy” and “If we had had confidence that the president clearly did not commit a crime, we would have said so”. Of course proving nothing happened is virtually impossible. Even if continued investigations cannot find proof of nothing, the anti-Trump crowd will forever believe that there is something they are missing.

First the office of the Special Council was questioned by the Democrats because Mueller is a registered Republican and must be partisan and protective of the president. Then he was a hero in their eyes because the entire investigative team he picked were highly partisan Democrat donors and advocates. Then came the report that did not explicitly call for presidential execution via a ten man firing squad. However, passive aggressive and double negative inferences such as those above leave Gerald Nadler the convenience of continuing to disrupt the operations of government in order to pursue and destroy a duly elected president who is not of Washington ilk.

Basically, what Mueller said was after 2+ years and $35 million taxpayer dollars we could not prove that the president or anyone on his campaign or staff did anything criminal or even demonstrable for which we could make a legal charge. We did our level best to find anything beyond dropping his fingernail clippings on the carpet in the oval office, but could not.

President Trump has accomplished much with his undiplomatic ways and lack of congressional support and it infuriates the Democrats seeking absolute power and control over the government and make “We the people” subjects to their tyranny.

THE AGE OF BEWILDERMENT

March 11, 2019

As we enter election season, progressives want to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. There is a reason for this and it is not just to incorporate more people into the civic duty of electing officials. The reason is sinister.

At 16, even a working individual has not had the opportunity to evaluate how the earnings taken from his or her paycheck are being abused by their elected officials. Scientific and biological researchers and experts agree that the human mind develops slowly and is not fully capable of continuous rational thought and judgment until a person is in their mid-twenties.

Teachers of students in the public indoctrination system insist on having their bored but active charges put on psychoactive pharmaceuticals to enable greater access to the otherwise bright and thinking minds of our youth. This is also why the government wants to take control of children even before they enter kindergarten.

While yet of what I believe is sound mind, I am having great difficulty understanding some of what is foist upon us by our elected elite socialists under the guise of evolutionary progress.

  • The minimum age to buy and drink alcohol in all 50 states is 21 years.
  • One must be 18 to join the military/fight for your country and kill enemies
  • One must be 18 to buy a firearm on the civilian market…they want to move this to 21 because, they say, a person of only eighteen years is not always capable of controlling their impulses.
  • One must be 18 to destroy their body by smoking tobacco products to ruin their health
  • One must be 18 to obtain a prescription for health medications or have a guardian sign for them.
  • Most states hold the parents responsible for the liabilities created by and the welfare of offspring until their 18th birthday.

For all of the above, one must present proof of age in the form of a verified government issued identification generally showing a photographic likeness of the individual requesting service (except for voting).

These ages, agreed upon and established over decades as norms, are now under consideration for revision to accommodate Marxist/socialist goals of transforming our democratic republic into a state of dictatorship.

*Remember, it was Michelle Obama who said in 2008, “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”

The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making. Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior.

VOTE16USA.org is dedicated to lowering the voting age to 16 across the nation. The organization says that such a move will improve voter turnout and encourage civic engagement. They offer heavy influence to the power-grabbing elite. Democrats in congress recently included lowering the voting age as an amendment in HR1 “For the People Act of 2019”.

From the website: http://nancyguberti.com/5-stages-of-human-brain-development/ (emphasis added to pertinent parts)

Stage 1: 0 to 10 months

~Neurons and connections growing.

Stage 2: birth to 6 years

~Development of voluntary movement, reasoning, perception, frontal lobes active in development of emotions, attachments, planning, working memory, and perception. A sense of self is developing and life experiences shape the emotional well being.

Our elected officials want control of this subset calling it Early Childhood or Pre-K development. By taking control of the early developing mind, it is possible to manipulate and subdue the child into the mold dictatorial socialists desire. They can “correct” responsive thinking early for compatibility with what they deem as new societal norms.

Stage 3: 7 to 22 years

~The neural connections or ‘grey’ matter is still pruning, wiring of brain still in progress, the fatty tissues surrounding neurons or ‘white’ matter increase and assist with speeding up electrical impulses and stabilize connections.  The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making.

~Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior. Avoiding drugs, alcohol, smoking, unprotected sex and substance abuse.

Stage 4: 23 to 65 years

~Finally, the brain reaches its peak power around age 22 and lasts for 5 more years. Afterwards, it’s a downhill pattern. Last to mature and the first to go are the brain functionality of executive control occurring in the prefrontal and temporal cortices. Memory for recalling episodes start to decline, processing speed slows and working memory is storing less information.

~Best approach is to stay mentally active, learn new things, stay physically active and eat a very healthy diet. Avoid toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and mind-altering drugs.

Given the proven development pattern of the human brain, is there any question why Democrat Socialists want to lower the voting age? Total control and manipulation of their subjects, “We the People”, appears to be the goal.  It’s only one part of the social engineering for effect taking place today.

I’M TAKING MY FEW DOLLARS OUT OF THE BANK!

February 25, 2019

Before the next election, I will be burying a Folgers can with my few dollars of folding cash in the back yard for protection. I realize I may lose a couple of cents in interest on my lifetime savings, but it’s better than losing all of my lifetime savings.

The Marxist/Socialists embedded within our government and those running for office from the President down to dog catcher are promising free everything and guaranteed income to cover the cost of “free”. If enough of them are elected to offices across the land, Venezuela might look good.

The public indoctrination centers have done such a good job of instituting equality for all without concern for production or participation that about 70% of college graduates now expect all for naught. They are the generation that will be running the government and taking money from the rich (i.e. those with money in banks and investments) to help themselves under the guise of helping those of lesser means. It’s the only way to pay for all the free…for a while.

We, of sound mind, should all be deeply concerned. Win or lose, the field of progressives with Marxist ideals offering Socialist programs with identity overtones is a danger to all. Progressivism began in the late 19th century and gained firm root in the 1920s and 1930s. While many politicians still claim to be Progressives, their ideology has morphed into the socialism Karl Marx imagined.

Of late, the campaign promises, pledges and assurances are becoming more and more hideous to those of us with a respect for personal independence and responsibility. But any and all of their goals are possible given the driving force behind them. The past three to four generations have been taught that wishing yourself a good grade gives you a good grade; that showing up for class is enough to move one to the next grade or graduation; participating is sufficient to receive a trophy and effort is not considered a virtue. They are the ones who will vote themselves and their friends more and more “free” until the treasury cannot print money fast enough.

A quick, overview but nowhere near comprehensive or complete look at some of the proposals:

  1. Minimum wage for all workers – your value to the company or your employer is of no consequence. Being an employee warrants a “living wage” no matter what you contribute or produce.

  2. Universal Basic Income (UBI) – select people deemed by the ruling class as “needy” receive a guaranteed amount of money from the government regularly. This differs from SNAP, EBT, WICS etc. because there is no expectancy that the recipient will use the money to satisfy the needs of nutrition for children or adults. The guaranteed income is distributed to enhance the perceived wealth of the recipient.

  3. Free education – this is a classic. High school graduates, of any income level, are welcomed into state supported colleges and universities despite any academic abilities or achievements throughout their previous educational endeavors. There is no tuition paid to the schools or any financial institutions by the students thus there is no drive for performance.

  4. Medicare for all – no pay, no co-pay, no premiums. Absolute and complete medical care on demand for every person within the identified confines of the United States. It matters naught how or why a person arrived here. They are here and they are entitled to the best health medicine can provide. Every person has the right to health no matter how they have treated their bodies throughout life or how they will continue to treat their bodies.

  5. Borderless country – all people are people of the world. There should be no restrictions on migration throughout the Americas.

  1. The Green New Deal – beyond the wild dreams listed in 1-5 and below, this will surely bankrupt the country. Zero emissions by 2050 is an impossible Utopian dream. For example, current studies indicate that the manufacturing process for automobile batteries today emits more pollutants than what is produced by an internal combustion engine over 100,000 driving miles. While the life expectancy for batteries in an all electric car is currently hovering around 200,000 miles across the various manufacturers, the recycling and disposal of them is also environmentally harmful. Progressives will undoubtedly over-regulate the amount of pollutants allowed in the manufacturing and disposal processes to the point of self-defeat.

  2. Reparations – apparently the people of the U.S. have left too much money in the coffers of the Treasury Department. Leftists want to share that with people whose distant ancestors were enslaved were enslaved over 200 years ago. They also want to include forgiveness payments to the indigenous people of the Americas, from South America to Canada including Greenland and Iceland. This may also be carried to residents of lands and countries in which our soldiers fought wars on behalf of our foreign brethren.

  3. Universal child care – exclusively for those women who didn’t take advantage of the free abortion to rid their bodies of an unwanted fetal mass. They can park the resultant child daily in a government run early indoctrination facility. This free service will provide parental separation services in preparation for the government run grade school system.

I’m not suggesting a run on the banking system right now, but these socialist policies will most certainly cause a monetary implosion that will affect everyone who has worked hard and saved a little something. Keep a close eye on the political maneuvering over the next few months. The indications of financial demise will be obvious.

These proposed policies extend well beyond, and are far more costly than, anything that has ever been tried, and those other attempts have all failed. Vladimir, Karl, Joseph, Benito, Mao, Fidel and Hugo would all be proud of the way the left is destroying the greatest socioeconomic/political structure man has ever devised.

Please excuse me but I have to go buy a can of coffee now.

 

THE PROBLEM WITH DOG WHISTLES

January 21, 2019

I will be the very first to admit my hearing is deficient. While I can hear hissing and crickets and birds chirping all day long, there are certain sounds that are beyond my receptive capabilities. It’s called nerve damage and tinnitus. Until recently I was bothered by what are supposed to be ultra-high frequency alarm systems when they were left on during the day in retail stores. Basically, I guess you could say, in the frequency range nearing that of a dog whistle. I could not, for instance, stay in K-mart longer than about 8 seconds before I had a headache. Dog whistles, however…can’t say that I’ve ever heard one.

What does it say about liberals that they are the only ones who can hear “dog whistles”. To them, dog whistles connote racism, xenophobia, sexism, etc. But they, liberals, are the only people on earth who can hear and define the “ism” or “phobia”.

A liberal can apparently hear one of their dog whistles in virtually every scene, sentence or word. In particular, if a liberal says something absolutely foolish regarding a person of color and you correct him or her or Ze, you are racist. If a sane person attempts to reason with a liberal and present facts that do not support a particular wacko theory, they will immediately hear a dog whistle for an ism or phobia. Should you say “sir” to a person with a stubble, Adam’s apple, large biceps and extended breasts your dog whistle connotes trans-phobia.

The perception of liberals is transcendental within their limited world. Even some of their own kind get caught up in the loop of insanity. Today they are picking apart conversations gone and forgotten for the past ten and twenty years to find something that they can call offensive to someone somewhere. Yet, they fail to recognize their own transgressions of the moment. E.g. saying black lives matter is commendable but saying all lives matter somehow diminishes the value of black lives as if they are not part of the whole. These are the very people who claim equality and seek inclusiveness.

Raw cotton on stems caused hysteria to a liberal Texas woman because 160 years ago slaves were made to pick cotton by hand. She saw racism in the floral display at Hobby Lobby. To secure our southern border and preserve law, order and national independence for our country, President Trump is decried as a xenophobe. The dog whistle is obvious only to his vehement opponents.

One ignorant civil rights attorney, Areva Martin (black liberal) <link>, made a call to the radio talk show of David Webb (a black conservative). Knowing him only as a conservative talk show host, she mistakenly called out his “white privilege”(stereo-typically only white people can be conservative). David courteously corrected her and let her know that his hard work and qualifications gained him his position, not the color of his skin. Did the liberals hear a dog whistle in that conversation? Nope! Their hearing, collectively, was immediately as poor as my own.

And that my friends is the problem with dog whistles. They only occur when convenient to liberals. I guess there are no conservative dogs. If you believe anything different, you are a walking, breathing dog whistle no matter what your sex, gender, chosen gender or ethnic background You are despicable, deplorable and not worthy of taking up space on this earth.

WOW! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN

January 3, 2019

As we begin the new year we are once again in a partial government shut down over issues with a continuing resolution (CR). Congress convenes again today with a new majority that is dead set against anything , known and unknown, the current president proposes, requests or demands. With the final accounting of the election, they have vowed to obstruct, deny and delay for the remainder of President Trump’s current term.

We the people should demand that a government wide BUDGET must be passed each and every year instead of allowing our elected employees the opportunity to bicker about appropriation and spending for individual departments and agencies for short terms without regard for actual revenues. Then, after confirmation, approval and signature by the president they can proceed to enact laws, rules and regulations that fit within the parameters set by the revenue projections with all spending within the actual revenue collections and department expenditures held proportionate to that income. There has been no fiscal year budget passed since FY 1997! Thanks to both sides of the political aisle, this is why our national debt is rapidly approaching (if not exceeding by time of publishing) $22 Trillion.

In my career I had to deal with budgets for a few small companies and was the CFO of a private non-profit organization dealing with government contracts and grants. In all cases, it was imperative to work within a designated framework of expenditures against revenue. If business was down, then the spending had to be cut back proportionately.

When the government (federal, state or local) failed to agree on a budget for the upcoming fiscal year we had to adjust the expenditures agency wide to accommodate. The NPO was expected to continue performing the services per the conditions agreed by contract until the governing entity released funds. Many of the the grants were on a cost reimbursement basis (we had to spend the money then request reimbursement for performance). Not all of our dealings with the various agencies followed their fiscal year.

The federal government does not follow the same rules they set for contractors. They declare certain amounts for spending and hope the money comes in to cover those expenditures. If it doesn’t, they borrow from you and me or some foreign country obligating you and me to pay it back through our taxes. Work hard…work two jobs if necessary. Your Congressman needs your taxes.

Once again, the Democrats (and RINOs) in Congress are using our immigration system to stymie the government until they overwhelmingly destroy its foundation. This time, instead of working on the allowance side of the immigration problem, they are fighting the rejection of continued destruction. They are fighting against the president, not on principle but on presentation. They will not allow the man in the White House the opportunity to do something the right way. Instead, they want to continue using a system failed by their own initiatives as an item of debate without resolution.

Please read THE PROGRESSIVE HEAD FAKE and embedded link for related in-depth information.

If President Trump is the negotiator he claims to be, he will not allow this to happen on his watch. His solution is a wall, a big beautiful wall. Granted that is not an all inclusive end to the problem of illegal immigration, but merely a step toward an ultimate solution. It is the first step that must be taken, however, in order to work on a complete fix that will benefit citizens and immigrants.

Hold firm Mr. President.  It’s your only hope for respect and a second term to do what’s right for our country.
