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?

IT WAS CALLED A DAY WITHOUT IMMIGRANTS BUT FOR MANY IT WAS THE LAST DAY OF WORK

February 22, 2017

After eight years of coddling people who have skirted laws and agents in their quest to break into our country, some employers finally found the strength to push back. Stories abound from coast to coast regarding the many business owners who decided that their livelihoods would not be dictated by the people they employ.

Last Thursday was labeled “A Day Without Immigrants”. Natural born citizens as well as legal and illegal immigrants took to the streets in protest of what some call security for our borders, economy and nation in general. Many of the protesters found that actions have consequences. Employers have an abundance of applications and resumes for people anxious to fill the now vacant positions.

According to news articles:

Tulsa, OK – 12 Latinos were dismissed for failing to show up for work. The business had to close for the day and the owner lost his ability to pay his ongoing bills that day.

Statesville, N.C. – 18 people lost their employment for failing to report to work on time-sensitive contracts.

Lexington, S.C. – after being warned, 21 workers were fired for defiantly not showing up for work.

Bonita Springs, FL – 6 staff members no longer have jobs.

Commerce City, CO – 30 brick layers were set idle.

Nolensville, TN – 20 households lost, at least, a significant portion of their income.

Before you cry RACIST you must understand that when employees of any nationality shut down a business, the owner must assure that it will not happen a second time for the same or any other reason. When a person invests their expertise, labor and money to produce an ongoing income for themselves and their family, that becomes his or her priority. Employing people is only a means to achieve that personal goal. There is no obligation to provide for those willing to cause harm to that business or employer. If only we could get rid of the insubordinate deadwood in government as easily.

It’s not a matter of race or nationality, it’s a matter of protecting one’s investment. If these employers were truly racist, would he or she have given a job to someone they despise because of their national origin or skin color?

Restaurant patrons coast to coast experienced delays in receiving their fare because waiters, cooks and other staff failed to report for work. Some establishments were forced to close for the day due to lack of staff. From California to Maine, the unreliable are now seeking new employment. While many, but not all, are Hispanic, that is not the reason for their firing. Caring more about making a political statement than they did about their employer’s right to continue in business is the reason.

 

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.

SPENDING BIG MONEY TO SAVE THE ECONOMY

February 14, 2017

As reported in the Wall Street Journal, wealthy Mexicans are willing to put up multiple millions of dollars to assist Mexican nationals illegally in our country as they fight to remain in the U.S. The Mexican government has also allocated $50 million to its consulates to help the movement. I guess neither the wealthy nor the corrupt government of Mexico really want the low skilled, uneducated (even after attending public institutions in the U.S.) law breakers returning to their home country.

The offered money is to tie up the U.S. courts, exhaust resources and frustrate government lawyers. Protesters will undoubtedly take over the grounds outside federal courthouses. An opportunity for drones equipped with facial recognition cameras overhead? Perhaps an apprehension or two, immediate escort to a courtroom and a speedy trial? With courts backlogged already, the proposed foreign money will prolong the stay for the possibly tens of thousands of potential deportees. Cloward and Piven would be very proud of the way foreign nationals extrapolated on the lessons the pair taught budding socialists back in the 1960s.

However, this battle is easily fought and won: (a) President Trump appoints immigration judges to the courts who are willing to uphold current immigration laws. (b) ICE has buses lined up and idling outside the backdoor of immigration courts. (c) Judge asks plaintiff if they were born in the U.S. If answer is no, then he or she asks, “Do you have a valid passport, green card, entry visa or other government issued authorization to be in the country”? If the answer again is no, a bailiff escorts the defendant to the awaiting transport. NEXT!

The above suggestion allows for clearing each case in three to five minutes. That’s 12 to 20 per hour per courtroom or plus or minus 150 of the criminal trespassers per day per courtroom. Can you imagine the Mexican economy with so many returnees?

It only took minutes to cross the border without permission, it should only take minutes to reverse the process and correct the problem. Family matters should not be considered by the courts. They are the responsibility of the lawbreakers who created the situations. The responsibility is upon the adults who should have made arrangements beforehand, not the citizens of the U.S. Yeah, responsibility. What an unconventional thought!

Harsh? You bet! We have millions of people on the welfare and unemployment rolls who should be “encouraged” to pick apples or lettuce or make up hotel beds or pluck chickens, etc. in return for their government handout. Perhaps picking up trash alongside the roadways or after a Democrat rally might be in order. Without people here illegally taking those positions, there might be more interest by otherwise lazy Americans to do the work. No work, no sharing the taxpayer’s money. Let’s call it redistributing the work.

We, as a country, have been remiss with our border security since before Reagan signed the Immigration Reform and Control Act of 1986. That act legalized some three million lawbreakers in exchange for the promise of enforced immigration control that never came. Today, the seditious lot describing themselves as progressives, Democrats and occasionally as “independents” are again demanding the same tit-for-no-tat that occurred thirty years ago. They use the same mantra, “the people only want to better their lives, and America offers that opportunity”. They neglect to account for the people entering who want to destroy our systems and values and kill as many of us as possible. Certainly those who break a second law need not be taking up the courts’ time or the taxpayer provided interpreters’ time or that of the free legal aid lawyers.

This isn’t tag or a flag football game, folks. It’s for keeps and the players on both sides get hurt. At best we need not be importing criminals, potential criminals or terrorists.  Protecting our country against illegal aliens is only part of what is necessary. Protecting our sovereignty by defining and defending borders is a requirement for any sovereign nation.

PM Trudeau is affably willing to aggregate people with unverifiable histories from war-torn nations without viable governments.  Perhaps we should allocate more resources to the northern border as well.  Immigration reform must be comprehensive.

When deportees are found in the U.S. a second time without authorization as six month stay at Sheriff Joe’s pink panty tent city might be in order.  No trial at the end of the sentence, just immediate expulsion.

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.
