2020 SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES

December 9, 2019

Looking at the candidates to defeat the nationalist currently holding office in D.C., one is bound to see some pretty wild characters and plots to overthrow the people of the United States.

Yes, I called the president a nationalist. I find he is neither a conservative nor a liberal. He might most closely resemble a libertarian, but he is not at all a libertarian. He is a strong defender of the U.S. Constitution, law and order from the military to the local level. He believes in a federal government limited in size and scope that is yet powerful enough to conduct business on behalf of the greater number of citizens throughout the country.

President Trump, as I have stated many times before in my posts, is not the person I would like to have representing my country. He is, however, showing to be the best and most capable person to lead this country at this time.

That said, the field of opposition to him in the 2020 election is bothersome to me and many other citizen patriots. We see the potential of losing the freedoms granted in the Constitution and the threat of forced acquiescence and servitude to an overarching government.

Looking at the remaining field of candidates running under the Democrat party (this is not a typo. I do not believe there is any remaining democracy in the people who call themselves Democrats). What appears on stage and in front of any available “reporter” are a troupe of individuals who proudly voice their will to overthrow our current economic, political and social structures in favor of a governing form known to have failed each and every time it has been attempted throughout history, leaving the citizens humiliated and in abject poverty.

With a population in excess of three hundred million, undermining our capitalist economic system in favor of socialism would not only destroy our country, but cause a reorder of the entire world of countries. It is a step toward globalism that could only ultimately create more warring factions with greater weaponry than exist today,

Just two of the policies proudly offered by the most prominent candidates will bankrupt the country within one four year presidential term. Those policies are open borders and universal health care (Medicare-for-All). Any thinking person can see how inviting the world’s unhealthy to partake of our free medical service would devastate any economic system within a few years, if not a matter of months.

Currently, people of means from around the globe come to America to receive the medical care they cannot get, or cannot get on a life-saving timeline, under the socialist systems of their home governments.

Add to the above proposal giving each person qualifying for any public assistance program (medicaid, SNAP, EBT, WIC, TANF, CHIP, LIHEAP, SSI, Section 8 housing assistance and more) $1,000 per month and you have the makings of a subservient population rather than one of independence offering contributory value.

The candidates, through their like-minded minions, have destroyed or removed from view symbols of our history and chronological writings of our forefathers. By eliminating contemporary journals and rewriting history, it is possible to educate upcoming generations with only one view of the possible. By offering “equality” to all through free entitlements, without a history of how such has destroyed societies, any desired goal is achievable no matter how irrational it is.

If there were another candidate with the mindset and capabilities of the current president, with a more likable persona, he or she would get my vote. As of today, I don’t see that person.

MAKING LIFE EASIER MAKES LIFE HARDER

December 2, 2019

The block letters above may seem like a total contradiction. In fact, they best illustrate what happens when people with supposedly good intentions wantonly interfere with normal progression and interaction of life.

There’s no place to start that is better than our current K-12 education system. Across this great nation over the past 2-3 decades there has been a trend to lower the standards in order to allow greater graduation rates (ego is more important than education). Emphasis on what were once core subjects (English, math, science, history, geography, economics, politics [objectively] and civics) has been replaced by softer (social, gender and racial) matters. In doing so, students of higher intellect and more capable learners suffer a lack of education in the basics required for a successful independent life. They do, however, gain an in-depth knowledge of the ethereal. High school graduates, in many cases, can barely read their own diploma or count the change received from a purchase without the aid of a virtual assistant smart phone app.

To avoid causing problems with fragile sensitivities through exposure to contrasting thoughts, conflicting or alternative ideas are prohibited from “safe spaces” where students congregate with only like-minded peers. This detachment does not work outside of select and controlled environs such as schools and only makes life in the real world near impossible for those who have relinquished acceptance of others and their individual thought processes to the unnecessary and harmful protection.

Making life easier/harder most often happens through government intervention, aka, entitlement programs. Meant to assist the temporarily disadvantaged through rough times, government intervention via subsidies and stipends actually coerce a majority of recipients into extended dependency. Those who do transition back to employment, earnings and independence are generally grateful for the stopgap assistance. Others, complain that they do not receive enough but remain unwilling to extend themselves for self betterment.

It happened with mortgage loans in the first decade of the current millennium. Mortgage interest rate structuring was changed supposedly to benefit people of lower income. Loans were made available to people with questionable credit and work history to allow ownership so that they, too, could take advantage of a rapidly appreciating housing market. Many loans were devised with low or no down payment and low monthly payment for the first few months to years. The concept was great in principle…on paper. However, the unrealistic qualification requirements caused tens of thousands of first time buyers to lose their entire investment when the loans reset, per original loan contract, to realistic terms in 2, 3, 5 or 7 years.

When they were unable to meet the new payments, many simply packed their furniture and other belongings into a trailer and drove off, later filing personal bankruptcy to relieve themselves of the obligation. With a collapsed and devastated housing market, banks and other lenders inventoried a glut of worthless and unmarketable homes. Many long established financial institutions were also driven into bankruptcy thanks to the pressures Chris Dodd and Barney Frank put on the Fannie Mae Corporation in 1999 such that parameters of lending standards were revised to include unworthy borrowers.

More recently it has happened by making student loans more easily accessible. Same principle, just a different clientele. Low interest government backed or government direct student loans tend to entice unqualified students to enter colleges and accept unreasonable debt. Many young people expecting the high school experience (e.g. show up for class and pass) to continue into higher education soon learn that they must actually study, learn and pass tests designed to measure knowledge. The recognition comes after signing in obligation for the government to pay tuition and some stipend costs while attending. Many of the under educated entrants (those graduated from high school despite a lack of academic achievement, knowledge or learning ability) soon drop out owing more than they can willingly repay. Thus, without a degree and mounds of debt they are caused to accept lower-paying positions and frustration with the process.

It happens through science. Vaccines, pills, capsules and immunizations meant to mitigate a particular malady or disorder frequently treat only the exposed symptoms and not the underlying problems. The negative side effects of these laboratory synthesized remedies often create more problems than they mask and require other medications to allay the symptoms of the previous application.

The American (and to a certain extent, world) society is being compromised by our government. Making life easier is actually making life harder in many ways. The current crop of presidential candidates are pushing socialism and ultimately communism as the answer to individual economic challenges. The federal government is looking for ways to totally control our lives by reducing personal responsibility and ownership. So, if you’re raking in money from the likes of Supplemental Security Income, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program (SNAP), Electronic Benefits Payment (EBT), Medicaid, etc., you may be causing your own dependency. If you’re looking forward to receiving $1,000 per month Universal Basic Income (UBI), you are prostituting yourself to government sponsored indentured servitude.

Please take responsibility and vote wisely, not for what you can get for yourself today, but what is best for you and all others over a longer term.

HEARSAY AND RED FLAG LAWS

November 25, 2019

On Wednesday, Nov. 13, Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Illinois) defended the testimony of “witnesses” during the first day of public impeachment hearings against President Donald Trump arguing that “hearsay can be much better evidence than direct.”

“I think the American public needs to be reminded that countless people have been convicted on hearsay,” he added. “Because the courts have routinely allowed and created needed exceptions to hearsay. Hearsay can be much better evidence than direct as we have learned in painful instances, and it’s certainly valid in this instance.”

He doesn’t, however, say how many innocent people have been erroneously convicted of crimes based solely on hearsay evidence. He did not go into how bias and hatred can cause simple hearsay to be used with damning influence.

The major problem with hearsay evidence, and even direct witness recollection, is mindset and objectivity at the time of observance and when testifying.

Rep. Quigley, with his statement above, illustrates the ability of authoritarian people seeking absolute power to make the absurd sound real to people who hear only what they want to hear. Remember, he is a member of the party that denies life until it can be seen outside the womb. Even then, if the mother and doctor involved choose not to accept it, that non-life might be terminated at will.

This is the group-think mentality under which progressive liberals demand adherence from all. If an activist progressive identifies yellow as a color of objection, then we must all eliminate yellow from our everyday lives or be outcast. If yellow ever adjoined one’s intersectionality (past or present) the only remedies are publicly renouncing and rejecting ever showing appreciation or even accepting the color yellow immediately followed by humiliating one’s self with apology or accepting excommunication from society at large.

So, if hearsay evidence is sufficient to incarcerate someone, then anyone who has flipped off another in heavy traffic becomes subject to gun confiscation (display of anger). Red Flag laws, now on the books and proposed, allow anyone to make a claim against a gun owner. With that claim, firearms and other lethal devices may be removed from the accused persons possession until there is an adjudication by the courts. A simple claim, even if that claim was experienced by another and verbally related to the claimant contacting authorities, is now enough to cause a home invasion and confiscation.

Progressives are taking this country from one of “innocent until proven guilty” to “guilty by accusation and innuendo”. They are making our world less safe by making crimes such as illegal entry, hit and run, theft, child rape, assault, battery, fraud and many other crimes into minor misdemeanors. There is no deterrent penalty to prevent recurrence or escalation to greater crimes. However, verbally defending your position against an angry idiot is enough for the police to confiscate all your legally owned weapons until you can prove that the idiot who lost the disagreement and engaged them is the one who should be jailed…and then the case is dismissed without redress for the false accusation.

People with this mindset are the same people who believe that Marxist/socialists will see to it that there is no charge for health care or higher education (aka their control and influence over your child pre-K – grad), that whoever wants to take advantage of the generosity of Americans is welcome to come from around the world and do so. No job, no skills, no education, no problem…it’s all free. And if you act now, the government will pay you $1,000 every month just for being here.

God, please save us!

EDUCATING OUR CHILDREN

November 6, 2019

In the very true and forthright words of Education Secretary, Betsy DeVos: “Every American family needs to open The Nation’s Report Card this year and think about what it means for their child and for our country’s future. The results are, frankly, devastating.” She continued, “This country is in a student achievement crisis, and over the past decade it has continued to worsen, especially for our most vulnerable students,” she added.

The “game changing” Obama legacy initiative known as Common Core that was introduced by former Secretary of Education, Arne Duncan, has failed every child subjected to the system. A study by NEAP (National Assessment of Educational Progress) over a 7 year period (2010-2017) showed that Common Core teaching methods produced significant negative effects on 4th graders’ reading achievement and 8th graders’ math achievement. The study also showed that the negative effects tend to increase over time!

While academic scores continue to drop precipitously, the kids in K-12 public schools are learning the benefits of transgenderism, oral and anal sex for pregnancy prevention, gender confusion is one staple on which you can rely, protesting elevates celebrity, victimhood is the road to success and blaming white men for your failure is better than working to improve your station in life. They are not learning math, science, reading, English, world history, geography and civics to an extent that will benefit them in their lives beyond high school.

While some people want to throw more money at our failing public schools to continue the practice of indoctrinating over educating, others are seeking choice for students and caring parents. Granted, charter schools and home schooling take money from the public schools coffer, but they do teach the tools that help our youth become productive members of our society. Students of alternate schools must actually learn, accomplish and verify their knowledge rather than simply attend classes to pass and graduate.

Both traditional public schools and charter schools are funded through state and local tax dollars and enjoy tax exempt donations. The traditional schools also receive funding from the federal government. Home schooling via voucher receives federal money and charitable donations through community service organizations. Charter schools and home schooling are therefore forced to economically provide the educational services. Public schools, as with most government agencies, rely on myriad administrative levels absorbing the funding before the much much needed dollars ever meet the classroom.

The goal of education should be the benefit to the children, not the physical plant from which that education in meted. The cost of education should, and must, be commensurate with the value received by each and every student and the immediate or adjacent economic surroundings must be irrelevant.

As the national debt grows through unchecked deficit spending on unnecessary pork laden special interest projects and election reversal, it shows only that government inefficiency, graft and corruption is destroying our country and the future of its citizens. Education must be restored and enhanced for equitable prosperity and longevity.

BUT IT’S THE ONLY WAY WE CAN GAIN CONTROL

September 30, 2019

President Trump says nasty things about virtually everybody he believes has attacked him or his ideas without warrant. It matters naught who it is, what color their skin or from where they come. It is him reacting to what he believes is untrue or wrong. Therefore, he must be impeached.

He was accused of “attacking women of color” because he said some uncomely things about THE SQUAD. The media, every democrat and P.C. analyst wrote and spoke about his being a racist for weeks due to a couple of tweets and live sound bites. He was called a racist, xenophobe, misogynist, white supremacist and Hitler for his pronouncements.

Could it be that he felt the four made idiotic suggestions about how much more money could be sucked out of the pockets and bank accounts of taxpayers? Might it be that they want government control of that money and your life? “The Green New Deal” would be 100% ineffectual because the U.S. is only a part of the world’s CO2 emissions caused by manufacturing and consumption of petroleum based products.

The squad, by their proposal, intimate that the U.S. can eliminate green house gasses and therefore eliminate the need for all other countries’ responsibility for emission reduction. They say that if we spend trillions of dollars on the effort, others will follow and do their part.

Human nature and history show us that, in fact, those other countries are likely to say, “Good job America, now we don’t have to waste our resources because you’ve done such a fantastic job”. Here I’d like to reference China’s adherence to the Paris Climate Accord. China (where people must often wear masks to breathe) agreed to continue creating greater pollution until a peak is reached in 2030.

He might have demeaned the people when he suggested that they “go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.” https://bizarroworldusa.wordpress.com/2019/07/18/news-alert-how-lies-become-truths/

While some of the greatest emitters of carbon based pollutants are truly reducing their emissions, their production and their economies are faltering. More manufacturing is being done in the U.S. since the accord was reached yet we are still reducing the total pollution despite the increase in production.

Don’t even get me started on bovine flatulence. I, too, have been known to eat foods such as legumes and grains that cause gaseous emissions.

It might be said that the current attempt is to make the president into something other than he really is. Of the past week or so, we have seen the media and socialists in office attempt to make a story out of a phone call. They have used hearsay, revolving media stories, innuendo and unfounded allegations. They say that he (Trump) tried to get dirt on a political opponent.

I doubt that President Trump is seriously concerned about Joe Biden becoming a viable candidate for president and that he needs dirt to secure re-election. As I see it, the president was suggesting that an investigation into corruption, money laundering, coercion and perhaps even bribery be re-opened. The subject of the investigation just happens to be a candidate unlikely to be the Democrat presidential nominee. It’s the corruption, not fear of Joe Biden, just as the comments about the squad had nothing to do with their gender, skin color or heritage. They happen to be socialists and he believes Americans are better off under a law and order capitalist society and democratic republic not a socialist controlled authoritarian regime.
