WHEN ALL ELSE FAILS

December 16, 2019

At the recent meeting of Women Rule Summit, Speaker Pelosi was asked about the speed with which the House Democrats were moving toward impeachment. “Speed?” she replied, “It’s been going on 22 months—two and a half years, actually.”

She continued digging the hole with, “I think we are not moving with speed. Was it two and a half years ago they initiated the Mueller investigation? It’s not about speed. It’s about urgency. One of the charges against the president of the United States—saying he was violating the oath of office by asking for government to interfere in our election undermining the integrity of our elections.”

Sometimes, in the haze of age and belief in her royal identity, Speaker Pelosi tells the obvious truth, whether she means to or not. She probably put it best over a year ago when she explained the “Wrap Up Smear”. Foolishly, she allowed the world to see the diabolical ways of the Democrat party. (Not saying that the Republicans don’t use this or similar tactics, but Democrats use it often and viciously.)

The Wrap Up Smear, as the Speaker put it, might well be the reason for the multitude of “leaks” that we see happening during this administration. It is so easy to quote The Washington Post or the New York Times as a credible source when it fits the Democrat agenda or cause. Simply feed the info you want to use through a reporter…maybe true maybe not…then use the manufactured article to validate your point.

More recently she shared the latest, or at least the most obvious iteration of the plan when she openly admitted that the impeachment of President Trump is not connected to any phone call, or even Russian meddling in our elections. It is all about undermining the credibility of a duly elected president. The whole impeachment saga began because they are angry they were unable to adequately manipulate the 2016 election and declare victory for the very corrupt Hillary Clinton in 2016. They have been mad at themselves and taking their anger out on our president.

The past week, the Judiciary committee issued and voted on two articles of impeachment.

Article I “ABUSE OF POWER”.

Hearsay, innuendo, bias, interpretation and desire to remove the sitting president from office were used in testimony to create this article. Unlike his predecessor using his pen and his phone to skirt congress, President Trump did what every other elected official does in the course of their business day. For him, however, it is considered abuse of power. The charge of investigating Joe and Hunter Biden in exchange for aid, is bogus. The president, from what I read in the transcript, asked the Ukrainian head of state to look into corruption within his government and his country. The Bidens had simply inserted themselves into that corruption.

And Article II, “OBSTRUCTION OF CONGRESS”.

Laughably, the Democrats in the House consider themselves above the other branches of government. When served with a subpoena, the White House properly referred the matter to the co-equal third branch of our government, the Supreme Court, to identify the validity and necessity of the subpoena. In doing so, this was considered defiant of the lords of congress and deemed impeachable.

This impeachment is an attempt to discredit the current president and take over the government. This behavior should bother everyone who thinks the ideals of the socialists seeking the presidency are not possible. This is the type of authoritarian underhanded overreach that can be expected from those diabolic and malevolent minded individuals seeking to preside over the economy and politics of the United States.

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.
