MUD SLINGING FOR EFFECT

September 21, 2018

In the military, the term is “fire for effect”, in politics it might be the above title. Fire for effect is a command given after the target has been identified and range and location are closely approximated. Once this all comes together, barrage fire takes place to devastate the enemy. It is not always dead-spot one shot accurate, but it does eliminate the threat.

For those of you without a calendar it is officially post Labor Day of an even numbered year. It’s election season! The political equivalent of the military maneuver is often used around election time to overwhelm the ignorant among us into believing things which are less than truthful and cannot be verified and combated.

This time around, there is more at stake than just congressional seats or even a presidential office vacancy. This year it is truly about the Constitution and whether it will be upheld and followed or if laws will be written by the courts rather than the Legislative branch of our government. This year it is most certainly about the seating of a Supreme Court justice and the filling of a soon to be vacant seat that can make or break the country.

Yep, it’s dirty tricks time. The Democrats, acting not as deliberative individuals but as an Orwellian group-think body, have tried to delay the confirmation of Judge Kavanaugh until after the November 6 elections in hopes of overcoming his ascension to the highest court in the land of the free and the home of the brave with an unbelievable tactic. A last minute surprise accusation of sexual assault has been levied against Judge Brett Kavanaugh that is not only provable or disprovable, but he apparently cannot even face his accuser.

Dr. Christine Blasey Ford, the accuser, refuses to testify under oath that the event even took place. Apparently the simple, unsubstantiated accusation is enough to delay and derail the confirmation hearings. What Dr. Ford has stated is that she definitely recalls 17 year old Brett Kavanaugh attacked her at a party while they were both in high school (sometime between 1980 and 1982). She knows she was 15 and Kavanaugh was 17, but she cannot specifically recall the year (???). She cannot identify the date of the attack, the home in which it supposedly occurred or even how she got home after the party and the devastating episode.

Dr. Ford, a California research psychologist and professor at Palo Alto University is also a Democrat/socialist and political activist who has participated in anti-Trump rallies and events. While those Democrats in congress and those on CNN and MSNBC are screaming that this is not a political stunt, one must recognize that Dr. Ford lives in one of the most liberal bastions within the confines of the most liberal state of the union. If you think this is not political, you don’t understand Democrat politics.

Today, in the time of the “MeToo” movement, all that is necessary for a liberal woman to ruin a man’s life is to declare that she is a victim. It doesn’t work so well if the man is also a ranking Democrat (e.g. Karen Monahan and Keith Ellison) and it doesn’t work if the woman is a sound minded conservative. However, if the woman is an activist liberal the man conservative, put him in shackles and stone him into confessing be there a crime or not.

Let’s see how well this works. I heard through a mutual friend that Dr. Ford had a three month long sexual relationship with a thirteen year old neighbor about ten years ago. It cannot be verified though because the young boy committed suicide shortly thereafter. Does that help to your career Chris?

DREAMERS AND OTHER LAW BREAKERS

April 3, 2018

For those of you who want to immediately call CNN and report your imagined hatred read into the title above please, at least this one time, take a moment to absorb some reason from this writing.

Using just a bit of logic, try to adapt the following situation to the current immigration debate.

A white Scandinavian adult male (we’ll call him Bjorn) here on an expired visa enters a locally owned independent grocery store. He just wants a better life for himself and his family. Along with him is his fourteen year old daughter, Margareta.

Bjorn gathers a pork roast, corn, some potatoes, carrots and perhaps a gallon of milk along with some hygiene products and cleaning supplies from the shelves. Margareta meanwhile places some gum, chips and an umbrella into the basket. Together they run out of the store as fast as they can with Bjorn pushing the shopping cart. They get three blocks away from the store and within a block of their home before being apprehended by a local constable. In their flight, they cross out of the city limits into county territory.

Using your brain, not your emotion, relate this situation to what you inherently know is right for our immigration system. Below are a few questions to ask yourself. I have already provided some plausible comparable situations.

1. After being questioned by authorities, should they be free to go with their largess because they were not caught within the confines of the store or even the city where the crime occurred? Illegal aliens, having made their way across our border are given a Notice to Appear and sent on their merry way. Many never show up in court and remain at large for years using stolen or forged documents to obtain work and government services.

2. If the pair was not caught and questioned within three weeks or two months, does that effectively erase the crime? Advocates for illegal immigrants often use the argument that he/she has been in the U.S. for X amount of time and, therefore, should be allowed to remain.

3. Should the store owner or manager be held liable because the front door was open for patrons or the back door was unlocked because a delivery was being made at the time? Many advocates for the illegal aliens say it is the fault of the U.S. for not adequately securing the borders. Then, when discussion regarding security measures begin, the people wanting to defend our borders are called racists or xenophobes.

4. Should the adult be punished for his misdeed? He was only trying to provide for his family. This is a favorite argument on behalf of the illegal immigrants. Bjorn showed his daughter that it is acceptable to break the law as long as the personal goal can be self-justified as honorable.

5. Should the minor child’s theft be forgiven because this is the only life she knows? She shows no remorse for her actions. She may even demand public support as a victim of immigration laws that do not support her “right” to be here attempting to survive.

6. Should the minor child be awarded benefits beyond those of her peers because her father is a petty criminal and taught her that it’s okay if the stated end goal is self betterment? Education, school lunches, health care, housing subsidies, subsistence payments?

7. Did Margareta have the opportunity to comply with moral codes and existing law; to apply for permanent legal residency? Did her dad? This is a question that advocates for illegal immigrants refuse to ask or answer.

Ya gotta love the cries of the “Dreamers”. Their illegal entry was forgiven by a lawless president. They have been taught by our public schools (at taxpayer expense and the educational cost to other students, I might add) that just because they came here as youth or young adults, through no fault of their own, that they are owed all the rights and benefits associated with citizenship.

They are owed! They are owed lawyers at taxpayer expense. They are owed a SNAP card and account. They are owed an education. They are owed driver licenses. They are owed health care and medical treatment. They are owed free tuition or instate tuition at state colleges and universities. They are even owed an “Obama Phone”, cable access and high speed internet connection (in some cases, a computer to make the connection). They are owed an interpreter and “first-in-line” placement and accommodations for not speaking and understanding the language. They are owed the benefit of doubt when committing minor crimes.

Let’s use some intelligence and start with the premise that they are law breakers, minors or not! Rectify the first misdemeanor. Go home and start the legal process. Then we can work on the rest.

Yes, we can and should help some of the people escaping extreme danger or tyranny. But we are not obligated to accept everybody who wants to live here and change our laws and culture to match those they fled. English is our language. Enforced laws used to be our way of order.

JUST ANOTHER LUMP UNDER THE RUG

April 2, 2016

Another congressperson is under suspicion of corruption. Yes, it happens on both sides of the aisle. This time, again, it is a Democrat.

Simple congressional corruption is commonplace and is generally handled by a committee made up of peers of the accused – The House Ethics Committee. This time, as the committee convened, our most honorable friend Loretta Lynch decided to take over the investigation. The accused is Rep. Corrine Brown of Florida. Rep. Brown is a woman. She is black. She is a Democrat. Thus, the investigation cannot possibly proceed in the same manner as most similar investigations.

The current Department of Injustice only, and always, meddles in these affairs when one of their favor is involved. It is easier to hide and obfuscate evidence, or simply disregard it when there is no outside interference by congress.

Even though he was ultimately censured (read: got a slap on the wrist), Charlie Rangel, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee which has oversight of tax issues, was allowed to face the non-partisan House Ethics Committee chaired by Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) when charged with thirteen ethics violations. Those “violations” included tax fraud, evasion and using rent controlled apartments as headquarters from which to solicit seven figure donations. But then, the Democrats held the majority in both houses at that time. Another factor that might have influenced the committee’s findings is that Rangel has been in government practically since birth. Charlie was found guilty of 11 of the 13 charges. No partisanship here! You or I would still be in jail for the same corruption. Rep. Rangel, on the other hand, remains at his job until such time he decides to retire with full retirement pay and benefits.

For a non-partisan committee to investigate and ultimately find a black woman responsible for graft in accepting over $150,000 from a fraudulent non profit entity that she bolstered by assisting in the collection of over $800,000 in donations could be nothing short of racist, sexist and abject partisan subjectivity.

Thus, Atty. Gen. Loretta lynch, at the behest of President Barack Obama, will thoroughly investigate the allegations to find nothing worthy of reprimand. They will sweep it under the rug, so to speak, just like Benghazi, the ATF, AP phone records, IRS, HUD, EPA, New Black Panthers and multiple other scandals and the way they will ultimately handle the Clinton Email debacle when the FBI hands the case over to them.

If you have the opportunity to visit Washington, D.C. in the next year, you may not be allowed into any of the Justice Department’s many offices. You see, it’s a safety issue. They don’t want citizens getting in the way of the bulldozers shoving evidence of wrongdoing under the carpet and certainly not tripping over the edges of the rugs covering mounds of scandals and corruption created and buried by this administration.

NO MY YOB

October 24, 2015

Being retired can lead to some interesting days. It can also render days of nothingness. On Thursday, I chose to spend the majority of the day watching the Benghazi hearings starring Hillary Clinton.

What I expected to see was an inquiry into what happened on the night of September 11, 2012. What I saw was a feud between Elija Cummings and Trey Gowdy. I did think and hope both Democrats and Republicans would be interested in identifying accountability for inadequate security at an American post in a hostile land on the anniversary of America’s greatest loss of lives caused by radical Islamic terrorists.

What I did see was a grueling stage show of fans and inquisitors. There were actually two committees which former Secretary Clinton addressed. Though every panelist pontificated before getting to their questioning, Republicans asked responsible questions bent on acquiring information about the attack, security at the compound and why no support was provided during the nearly twelve hour seige; why no fighter jets were scrambled or special warefare troops were even readied to assist our diplomats and intelligence agents.

On the other side of the platform was the cheering section. Democrats blew kisses to Hillary. They, one at a time, congratulated her on her wonderful service to the country as Secretary of State.  I believe I heard one ask her what color toe nail polish she had on that day after using up his time in glowing adoration.

And, while wasting the taxpayer money doing so, they chastised the Republicans on the committee for spending $4.7 million fighting the Obama administration for records and emails that would have cut the committee’s time to a minimum. Unfortunately, the State Department and other bureaucracies either could not produce the requested material or elected to obfuscate the investigative process.

All-in-all, Clinton skated again. She, like her boss, managed to deflect questions and place responsibility for all the bad news upon her staff, the “security professionals”, DOD, the Pentagon and the military. Once again, she managed to credit herself for those areas she believes she benefited as Secretary of State but denied all responsibility for the deaths of four Americans who, after multiple requests for more security, remained highly vulnerable in a hostile nation.

This is the woman who wants to be president and Democrats don’t care if she’s deceitful, conniving or a habitual liar.  She’s a Democrat just like them and therefore worthy of the office.

MOTOR VOTER = ILLEGAL VOTING

September 16, 2015

California is once again taking the lead. Governor Moonbeam and his merry band of progressives must think they can derive enough money out of 2.6 million new driver licenses to offset their inane deficit spending.

By overwhelming Democrat vote in the legislature and the stroke of the governor’s pen, California will now issue driver licenses to people who have broken our immigration laws and who cannot prove who they really are. Much of the identification process is done by having another person stand with them in line and say to the DMV clerk, “Yup, that’s Ding or Abdullah, or Juan or Vladimir or Maria or Natasha. I’ve known him/her for years”. Often, even the “Yup” is in a language other than English.

Perhaps the new money will fund another study identifing why the delta smelt is still dying off despite the state bankrupting farmers and driving up food costs by reducing supply. Maybe some of the new revenue will make up for the parched earth of the central valley that is no longer producing tax revenue.

Let’s forego the issuing of driver licenses to individuals who cannot read street signs or understand traffic officers’ requests or commands for a moment. For now, let’s even overlook the number of accidents driving up your uninsured and underinsured motorist and medical payment premiums.

I hear or read daily about how a mother and her two daughters were mowed down in a crosswalk in San Diego by a latino driver who fled on foot. The local news stations spend 20 pecent of their nightly newscasts showing pictures of bloody accident scenes in which an illegal alien is involved.

They may be from Honduras, Guatamala, Mexico, China, Syria or Pakistan or England. It doesn’t matter. Obtaining a valid picture I.D. is not going to make them better, safer or more concerned drivers. They don’t want to be jailed or deported and often don’t care who they killed or maimed as long as they can stay here, even if it means returning to the shadows.

Along with the driver license is a card showing voter registration. It may not have a party ascribed, but it will allow them a voice in determining how the state, and our country is governed.

For those of you reading this who don’t vote because you feel your vote doesn’t count…it doesn’t if you don’t cast it. By not voting you are abdicating your future well being to the whims and influences of foreign nationals. And that, my friend, is how we get these laws.
