THE PENDULUM SWING-IS IT A GOOD THING?

March 6, 2017

Over the past few decades we (the attentive few) have seen our Executive branch take on more and more power and authority. The executive branch is now just shy of dictatorial. The body congress is intimidated, highly partisan and sheepishly resigned. Our courts are directing legislation.

The constitution doesn’t allow for it, congress isn’t granting it and the courts are capitulating. It’s happening before our eyes as we sleep and while we’re blindly awake. The news we receive, the little real news and the fake news, feeds us only what those at the top want us to hear.

Politicians have lied to their constituents since time immemorial. It’s nothing new. However, within my short span of time and awareness, it has become most blatant. It is done without regard for your intelligence and without concern for being called on it. “I can assure you that the United States has no intention of using force to overthrow the Castro regime.”…“I am not a crook”…“Read my lips”…“I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.”…“Intelligence gathered by this and other governments leaves no doubt that the Iraq regime continues to possess and conceal some of the most lethal weapons ever devised”…“The misconceptions are that we are conducting spying operations on US citizens, which is of course not the fact. That is absolutely not what we do.”… “I have no recollection of that”…“I can make a firm pledge. Under my plan, no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase. Not your income tax, not your payroll tax, not your capital gains taxes, not any of your taxes.”… and of course, “If you like your doctor, you will be able to keep your doctor, period”.

The overlapping, redundant and duplicitous alphabet agencies (NSA, CIA, FBI, OIC, NSC and even the IRS) within the government now control our elected and appointed officials. Be it by intimidation extortion or bribery, the spooks are in charge. They also hold a very strong influence over the run-of-the-mill mid level bureaucrats with citizens who step out of their overlord defined box immediately become subject to enhanced repercussion. <link>

Our new president is in feud with the miscreants of all the above named agencies and departments. He agrees with many of us who believe the inner cabal has either been fraudulently awarded, or usurped more supremacy than authorized by the citizens. President Trump claims commitment to reining that jurisdiction and restoring the federal government to its rightful limits of privilege and dominance.

Doing so, might be the world’s greatest challenge because only he and his relatively small team are taking on an extensive and deep seated resistance. It’s David fighting a Goliath force of three actual factions.

First are those who desire to keep their seats of assumed authority and clout. Second are the ignorant lemmings who do not recognize from whom they receive their marching orders or even understand what they mindlessly “protest”.

This layer is under constant bombardment and encouragement of the broadcast, print and peer social media. They are organized by charismatic figures with a devious agenda. It’s a cultist engagement. The goals of the leaders are not shared with the devotees. The worshipers will only find out the last batch of Kool-Aid is spiked with poison when cocktail time is announced. Society as we know it will be doomed by the heedless group-think of the devotees if we allow them to reach that hour.

So then we have to question; Is a rapid and forceful pendulum swing the best thing for the country and the world at this time? Will quickly righting the course of the country from its errant direction of the recent eight years upset the tenuous balance of the nation and the world? Or, will a slower, more methodical natural change keep the ship from capsizing as we come about?

THESE ARE DEFINITELY DIFFERENT TIMES

February 20, 2017

This president has more to overcome than most. Because he is an outsider, he doesn’t understand or follow political protocol. He makes things happen rather than convening delegations to talk about what needs to be done then waiting for something to begin happening.

Mistakes? Yes. That’s not at all uncommon when advancing new programs or ideas. Mistakes can be and are corrected. Calling them “unintended consequences”, dismissing them and moving forward is wrong on every level. The ACA is a prime example. It was wrong from the beginning. It was costly and offered less care than insurance companies allowed prior. Doing nothing is safe and prolongs political careers, but accomplishes nothing else.

It’s now far beyond party politics. This is anarchy. This is riotous rebellion. There is no other excuse for the foolishness taking place in Washington, D.C. and around the country. The entrenched Washington establishment hates change. That’s why it takes so long for conventional channels to effect anything beneficial. When little happens, there are fewer unintended consequences and the ignorant masses won’t see any difference…to appreciate or protest. Therefore, those in office stay in office and continue feeding their own pockets.

The Ninth Circus recently made another of their now infamous bonehead decisions. They, again, made a political statement in favor of rainbows and perceived harmony instead of homeland security. The written opinion, meant to justify the decision, illustrated that it was not a constitutional or even a logical decision. It was purely political.

The news agencies are out to get the president, his staff, his advisers and his confirmed department heads. Because they parse his every word to benefit their preconceived agenda, Sean Spicer skips questions from many of the leftest news-maker-uppers. When not called upon in recent press briefings, they became even louder and more malevolent using comparisons to Hitler and the Taliban in their talk programs and opinion columns hoping to win greater access and favor. DUH!

Much, if not all, of this is due to the fact that President Trump is a political outsider. He is learning the ropes and he’s learning who’s dangling them in front of him. Talk of impeachment began shortly after he won the election! Thus, it may take a bit longer for things to settle. None the less, he will dodge the alligators as he removes their habitat.

The left, the media (redundancy noted), the right and even the apolitical bureaucrats don’t yet understand his non-governmental style. They are not used to getting things done rapidly. The civil servant desk jockeys, in particular, are not familiar with justifying their pay by accomplishing tasks within a reasonable time.  They too are balking at the new administration.  The first 100 days will be primarily the sorting and filing firing days.

NO MATTER WHAT HE DOES OR HOW THE PRESIDENT TERMS IT, THE LOONY LEFTIES WILL TRY TO MOCK AND DESTROY HIM

February 6, 2017

President Trump identified many of the country’s problems while on the campaign trail. Most, but certainly not all, were caused by the administration in charge at the time. Among the failures were health care (the expensive tax mandate offering little insurance and less care), ISIS and other radical Islamic terrorists, border security, immigration, partisan political department heads and office holders, jobs, education and international relations to name just a few. The progressives are doing their best to defy and destroy any and all attempts to remedy the above ills.

Since just before he was sworn into office, there have been what the left calls protests or demonstrations and observers call riots with unfounded cause. The media, in defense reporting, refer to the events as constitutionally guaranteed free speech. Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of personal and public property has since been destroyed. Cleanup costs absorbed by insurance companies, city, county and state budgets have soared. Many of the anarchists don’t even understand why they are doing what they are doing. They are either caught up in the Twitter fed “movement” (an opportunity to blow off steam), or they are being paid to participate.

There are others who actually believe in what they do. Environmentalists, for example, protest the thought of having a wall along our southern border in the name of protecting the flora and fauna of the region.  Blinded by ill conceived ideology, they refuse to see or accept the damage to ranch land, national parks and desert life done by masses of disrespectful people trudging across plants, insects, rodent burrows and other habitat of the desert floor. They seem not concerned about the trails and piles of non-biodegradable refuse left behind or the massive wildfires caused by the mismanaged campfires of illegal entrants.

To them, it matters naught that citizens are now barred from, or cautioned against, entry to the very terrain sanctuaries they claim they want to protect. In many places along the southern confines, one might risk life and limb trying to enjoy the beauty of our land due to hostile encounters.

Then comes the big hit. As the Trump team looks into re-branding the politically correct and ineffectual program called Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) the few remaining unexploded progressive heads are ready to burst.

By identifying the true problem such as “Countering Radical Islamic Extremism” and concentrating on the menace rather than the politics, perhaps an end might be in sight. This proposed move establishes a difference between Muslims and those who have hijacked the religion’s name for the sake of western cultural genocide. Until now, the two were assiduously conflated to confuse the ignorant and irk those who believe in Muhammad but do not believe in killing or maiming in the name of uncivilized 7th century brutality. Rather than inflaming the peaceful worshipers as progressives prompt, this move should consolidate them in a plan to return respect to their observance.

The new administration is undoubtedly also working on plans to quell anarchy in the streets. Students of major universities are now inescapably caught in a web spun and funded by the seditious George Soros et al. They cannot draw parallels with their acts and the terrorists we battle. Many don’t know history and even fewer know why they are being led to engage in the crimes they commit.

Burning cars and libraries, destroying businesses and taunting police must end and it probably won’t end in happiness and joy. It could well end with the participants dwelling for a period in the “FEMA Emergency Centers” proposed by Alcee Hastings in 2009.  Not closed, the bill was reintroduced as H.R. 390 in 2014. While the title of the bill sounds typically innocuous, these emergency centers are surrounded by 10′-12′ fences topped with razor wire.  (That ain’t to keep peaceful civilian refugees safe from nature, folks.)  The covert intent is to warehouse subversive individuals and groups when deemed threats by the federal government. (Just another unintended consequence of a progressive’s attempt to dominate the masses that could be used against them.)

So, whether you agree or disagree with his methods as you watch the idiots destroy their own world, you can rest assured there is now someone in charge who will act on your behalf without first checking the direction of the political correctness windsock.

BOAST OF ACHIEVEMENTS, BLAME BUSH, BELEAGUER TRUMP

February 3, 2017

Just like the nightly liars and bird cage liners, I just can’t say enough about our recent former president. He manages to stay in the news almost as well as the news has managed to stay on President Trump. He hates it when the Klieg lights are not focused on him.  For the first time in over eight years, Obama used some restraint for an amazing ten days. Then he made a fool of himself again.

Every time President Obama was caught indecisive, from his campaigning days on, he blamed President Bush for the predicament. The situation, any situation, was caused by his predecessor. Well into his second term as the country’s theoretic leader he refused to take responsibility for the outcome of his own actions or inaction. To be truthful, the closest he ever came to accepting responsibility was when he said, “it could have been done differently” referring to one of his many f*#kups.

Now he’s weighing in on his successor. Still not ready to accept responsibility for jobs, the economy, global hatred and distrust for the U.S. caused by his lack of leadership, he is mocking any changes made to mitigate his ineptness. Like any good Alinsky acolyte, he is encouraging anarchy.

On Monday of this week, Obama spokesman Kevin Lewis said, “President Obama is heartened by the level of engagement taking place in communities around the country”. “Citizens exercising their constitutional right to assemble, organize and have their voices heard by their elected officials is exactly what we expect to see when American values are at stake.”

Burning cars, breaking windows, beating people with opposing views is not the way to display dissatisfaction with a policy or administration. Protest, yes. Riot, no.

Per normal, he got it wrong again. In an effort to raise angst and anger among his loony groupies, he interjected the “Muslim ban” meme into the vetting of potential terrorists. Conflate for effect…or outright lie. That is the way of the progressive left.

It antagonizes the left any time a particular group of people is somehow restricted. Well, that is, groups other than normal people, people who use logic and reason in decision making, those who believe in and follow the constitution and abide by the laws (God’s laws or man’s), etc.

No, he couldn’t raise enough emotion among his hate-filled, hurtful and vicious lemmings when he was president to order or invoke martial law. Oh what glorious power that would have bestowed upon him. Perhaps now that he can again pray on his knees, head to floor, five times a day he can find the enlightenment to enrage the left and elevate them to complete and violent nihilism. Then he can blame Trump!

 

 

 

 

HOW TO CREATE CHAOS AND DISTRUST IN THE MIDST OF A “PEACEFUL TRANSITION OF POWER”

HEAD OF D.C. NATIONAL GUARD TO BE REMOVED FROM POST IN MIDDLE OF INAUGURATION – The Washington Post

https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/public-safety/commanding-general-of-dc-national-guard-to-be-removed-from-post/2017/01/13/725a0438-d99e-11e6-b8b2-cb5164beba6b_story.html

I have a tendency not to believe much of what I read and question a lot of what I see. My hearing is shot so, for clarity, I often ask for what I think I hear to be repeated – occasionally multiple times. It may disturb a lot of people who want to accept whatever agrees with their foregone conclusion in any situation, but it keeps me sane. Well, as sane as I’m going to be at this point.

For years I have been doing much the same as you see above, searching and researching; not trusting but attempting to verify. Especially when I encounter something that seems too real or too good to be true I tend to question until I am satisfied. Yesterday, however, presented a real challenge to my well being. I really cannot accept any of the above stories with certainty. While there is a confluence of information within them they all read very differently. I guess what might be inferred from any and all is that Maj. Gen. Errol R. Schwartz will be in command of the D.C. National Guard when the inauguration begins, but not at the end.

“Whose choice is it; the General’s, the Army’s, Obama’s or Trump’s to leave his post in the middle of a peaceful transition of power”? The answer remains unclear.  With everything Obama has done in the past 2-3 weeks to make the first hundred days as chaotic as possible, I’m hedging that it is his choice. But then again, Trump wants to get rid of all the Obama acolytes. The General says he submitted his resignation some time ago and agrees that the timing of the acceptance is most definitely odd. So, is the day and time his choice?
