THEY’RE COMING FOR YOUR FREEDOMS

April 24, 2020

As one who pays attention to the news – not just the propaganda of the right or the left – but both sides somewhat equally – there are opportunities to see how the public is influenced/manipulated.

For decades now progressives (read: Marxist/socialists) have been usurping more and more power. They have taken it from the blind among us and waved it about until none of us realize it’s gone. Now they’re accelerating their moves to eliminate our rights, freedoms and the Constitution of the United States in whole. Every calamity, every shattering event, every disaster is an opportunity to separate us from the humanity once offered by our forefathers for life in this country.

We cannot even trust the cable news programs to tell us what is happening at home or around the globe. Almost all of what they have to offer is slanted to meet a political need or desire. It’s not one side or the other, both are to blame. One news station expresses one political philosophy with emphasis only on the areas they want us to hear. The others collectively and repetitively pronounce the opposite. The broadcast stations incorporate leftest leanings into virtually every entertainment program offered. The brainwashing continues.

No longer is there a left and right to our political system. It is overrun by progressive ideology propped and enhanced by liberal media that loudly mocks and mobs conservative voices. Social media posts are content edited or censored entirely according to the political leanings of the sponsoring company. Labeling anything contrary to the political biases of Facebook, Mark Zukerberg has named them “harmful misinformation” that Facebook must strike from posts.

Just how is the balance upended? Progressive Democrats having the majority in the House of Representatives are now promoting mail-in ballots, no I.D. voting and ballot harvesting. All those methods of voting promote fraud and abuse of our system. They are all channeled to add progressive members to Congress and even to overtake the presidency.

Of recent, we have seen progressive governors and mayors take advantage of the current crisis in ways no freedom loving American would ever expect. Not only are we required to “shelter in place” leaving our homes only for necessities, those necessities are described in detail by the over-lording representatives. E.g. while most businesses and churches are required to be closed, high tax businesses and revenue streams continue to feed the government. Lottery tickets may still be sold along with liquor and marijuana. Flooring, however, cannot be purchased to keep stay-at-home occupants inside and busy with remodeling. Paddle boarding off the coast is forbidden despite the obvious social distancing and jogging or otherwise exercising alone on a sunny day will net you a citation and fine from the local constabulary.

These over-restrictive edicts represent what we can expect in the future if any more over-bearing progressives obtain office or positions of power where they can further inhibit and control “We the People”. Please be aware of what is happening before you, and vote wisely.

IT’S BEYOND POLITICS

February 7, 2020

Politics has always been an adversarial process. It was meant to be. The reason for the three branches of government is to check, recheck and balance the governors of our country. However, the business of politics was never conceived to become so viscous and hateful.

With their hatred for the non-conforming, undiplomatic and forthright president, the Democrats have turned politics, not only in Washington D.C., but throughout the country into a blood sport. They have encouraged Antifa to riot by standing by and allowing the members to assault non-members (actually drawing blood and injuring upstanding citizens) with impunity.

They drew upon ambiguous and undefined language to issue two Articles of Impeachment which were voted on and passed by partisan vote. They have upended the state of politics for coming presidents forever. To identify a president’s thoughts as criminal or misdemeanors of impeachable capacity is very dangerous to the character of government and the nation.

Nancy Pelosi probably best described the Democrat strategy in 2017, <link>

This is not the first time a ranking member or leader in the Democrat controlled House or Senate has foregone the rules of normalcy to achieve an underhanded victory. Harry Reid is a testament to that. He introduced the “nuclear option” to the Senate to block filibuster and discussion of controversial presidential nominees with the exception of Supreme Court nominees. In doing so, he eternally altered voting process of the Senate. He won that round, but the tolerant, understanding and accepting Democrats now cry foul when the Republican majority uses that very move.

Now we have a president who has been “impeached forever” in the Speaker’s words. They have impeached President Trump not for cause, but because. In doing so, they, the majority in the House (this time it’s Democrats) have changed the landscape for the most important action the body can take.

There is no known reason for the abject hatred of President Trump other than the fact that he is President Trump. He defeated the predesignated “Queen of the White House” and that seems to be enough for the Democrats to continue attacking him and obstructing his presidency.

I did not vote for Trump in 2016. I didn’t and don’t agree with much of his direct rhetoric, yet I cannot fault him for his forthrightness and openness. There is no question about his thinking because he shares it loudly and often. This is very unlike any previous politician. But he is not a politician and is not beholden to various lobbying groups or even the pressure of his own party. Those are among the various reasons why he is disliked in Washington. He cannot be influenced with fame or fortune…he had them both before he decided to run for office and will forever be known and wealthy without compromising his integrity, such as it is.

Despite his lack of protocol but given the malicious and nefarious behavior of the Democrats over the past 3+ years, there is no way I will vote to install another. Regardless of the policies professed, I will not vote for a Democrat running for local, county, state and certainly not federal office. If that means voting to re-elect President Trump, I will.

HATE MONGERING

August 12, 2019

The liberal media and Democrat politicians exacerbate every negative situation with vitriolic rhetoric that causes and excites hatred. Sometimes, their actions and wording twist the truth to make it appear negative even when it’s not. Then, when violence occurs, they say the president’s tweets are to blame. Oft ignored is the fact that the statements, those of the msm and their guests, contributors and correspondents place definite divisions on race, religion, politics, gender et al.

Calling for protesters to show up outside a donor’s home in the Hamptons “with pitchforks and torches as one guest did on MSNBC recently does not promote unity and calmness. This was simply because the businessman offered to hold a fundraiser for the president.

Phrases such as “ripping babies from their mother’s arms” that became the meme of the left to describe CBP’s attempts to identify families from child traffickers do not help. Calling those who do not agree with your political views concerning border security “white supremacists” or “extremists” or “Nazis” or “racists” and doxxing them in open forum only incites already angry and unstable people to commit violent acts.

Calling a rifle an “assault weapon” because it is black and looks scary to individuals made fragile by their K-12 education helps the narrative of those who want to eliminate guns. Other weapons that can be, and have been, used to assault the population might be knives, brass (or other hard material) knuckles, rocks, baseball bats, pool cues, pepper spray, acid, etc.

In fact, since the big news stories of El Paso and Dayton, there have been a minimum of three national news stories of knife stabbings. Those, too, were “assaults” with “weapons” where not less than five people died.

Regarding merit based immigration reform as opposed to unchecked illegal migration across our southern border by many hard working but uneducated and indigent individuals and families, Nicole Wallace of MSNBC recently referred to the president as talking about exterminating Latinos. Though walked back later, this type of incendiary speech is not calming to a volatile, demented population looking for a cause to commit violence.

Effective July 1, 2010 a 10% tax was instituted on all tanning salons and businesses that offered tanning services. This was not an equally applied tax on all people or all businesses, it was a direct assault on white people by the Obama administration and enforced under the ACA. Was this a RACIST act?

So, who’s really to blame for the violence and deaths among the citizens and residents of this nation? Is it the president who tweets his beliefs in retaliation against his aggressors, sometimes using foul language? Or, is it the Democrats and their pervasive news arms who broadcast hatred and discontent 24/7 to rile their under educated and angry minions?

DEMOCRAT FREE FOR ALL

July 11, 2019

Candidates on both sides of the political aisle make promises that they never intend to keep. They do so trying to entice voters to “pull the lever” on their behalf. It’s nothing new. However, this round, the pledges and overtures go far beyond logic and reason for anybody that is not of the participation trophy generations. Thinking people must reject the fantasy statements and the candidates who make them in favor of saving our nation and our way of life.

Most of the programs include handouts that make no sense or are so broad as to invite uncontrollable fraud. Each entrant into the clown competition for president has made some offers that sound good to the takers of the nation, but terrible for the producers and can only lead to the collapse of our sovereignty and our democracy.

Aside from consulting the nearest wind sock on any given day or event, there are absurd verbal expulsions from virtually everyone seeking the highest office in the land.

Here are just some of the statements made on the campaign trail:

Proposed “War Tax” on families that don’t have at least one member in the military or having served in the military. Sounds good at the onset, but does not describe how far the family extends. There is no mention about honorable service, just service.

The government cannot keep track of who receives EBT benefits or who gets EIC credit. How can anyone in their right mind expect the government to track who has family members in the military. What happens if John joins the Marines after high school? Is his sister Sally exempt from the tax as long as she lives in the family home? Does the exemption continue after she is married?

At least one of the leftist idiots states loud and clear that if he becomes president, and if you don’t relinquish your weapons, you will be overcome by force and imprisoned. Mr. Swalwell has no respect for the Constitution or the attached Bill or Rights. Like most of those on the debate stage(s) mandated conformity to autocratic demands is the way of the future. Fortunately, Mr. Swalwell’s idiocy became clear to even him.

There is vast support among the Democrat candidates for decriminalizing illegal entry into our country. If that isn’t open borders, nothing is. No borders, no country.

If there is no cost, there is no value!

Almost all have advocated for free college tuition. It is simply an extension of the substandard learning process that has been the norm for the past 50 years or so. Continued indoctrination is necessary for some of the slow learners who were unable to accept Communism as the best socioeconomic system in their first twelve years of public education.

Medicare for all (some candidates include virtually every person within the confines of the 50 states, legal, illegal, temporary or permanent). Why not vacationers here on a visa?. This is inviting everybody with a hangnail to clog waiting rooms across the nation. No problem…the doctor’s office is climate controlled and no one can be turned away! Corey Booker says “It just makes sense”.

Taxpayer paid abortion – No matter how you view abortion, (murder, women’s reproductive rights or simply internal feminine cleansing), if there is no cost for irresponsibility there is no reason to be responsible. Hook up on Saturday night and up to nine months later you can have that growth inside you removed at taxpayer expense.

Voting without I.D. – This is about the most ridiculous thing that has ever been presented to a civilized society. Currently, in many states, there is nothing stopping someone from getting off a plane, a boat or crossing the Rio Grande (aka: Rio Bravo del Norte) into our southern desert on election day from going to the Motor Vehicle Department, getting a driver license to use as I.D., then driving on to the polls and voting. Yet, some of these same idiots want to exclude our military men and women serving outside the country on election day from casting their ballot.

Universal Basic Income – Proposals range from $500/mo. to $1,000/mo. given to every adult person in the U.S. No need to work or produce, the check’s in the mail. Actually, you need not even bother going to your mail box or cashing a check. Completely effortless! A government deposit will be made directly into your bank account on a specific date each month so that you can continue using your EBT card to buy corn chips and beer without interruption.

No consequence for breaking the law. No loss of rights for committing felonies; vote from prison. The Marxist/socialists, whether they say it aloud or not, want to make every non-politician completely beholden to a strong central government. Act the way we say or we’ll take away your subsidies.

Otherwise, all is free!

THE WRAP UP SMEAR

October 16, 2018

For those people who believe Democrats, or want to believe Democrats, there is one who meets your desires. Sometimes even a malicious stumbling, bumbling Democrat like Nancy Pelosi unwittingly stutters their way to the truth.

From the Daily Wire on Oct 8, 2018 – In her own words, Pelosi described the ruthless and untruthful smearing of Republicans as a “common diversionary tactic”.  <link>

“It’s a diversionary tactic,” she starts. “It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, you demonize and then — the ‘wrap-up smear.’ You wanna talk politics? We call it the ‘wrap-up smear.'”

“You smear somebody with falsehoods and all the rest,” Pelosi detailed, “and then you merchandise it. And then you (gesturing to the media) write it, and then they say, ‘See, it’s reported in the press that this, this, this, and this.’ So they have that validation that the press reported the smear, and then it’s called the ‘wrap-up smear.'”

“And now I’m going to merchandise the press’s report on the smear that we made,” she repeated. “It’s a tactic. And it’s self-evident.”

This is exactly what they did to Judge Kavanaugh. It is what they do at virtually every “rally” or “march” in which they participate. The progressives (read: anarchic socialists), paid by billionaires like Steyer and Soros through various organizations, sample assorted words and sayings to identify the most outlandish and yet effective chants. Those selected as best are etched into the memory banks of a few “leaders” who then direct the minions in repetition. The agreeing media then airs the crowd over and over again until they feel the average idiot believes what they hear.

Other ways that the loathsome left in office and in the media promulgate lies and discord is by repeating words and catch phrases that provoke contempt, anger and violence. You’ve heard them all. Here are just a few.

*Russia, Russia, Russia

*Ripping babies from the arms of mothers

*Black churches will burn

*Throwing granny over a cliff

*Millions will lose their health care

*Women will no longer have a choice

*It’s for the children-or the needy-or the elderly

*Assault rifles

Additionally, there are those in elected office and other professional politicians (primarily of the Democrat party) who subtly advocate or promote indignation and even violence. Cory Booker, Maxine Waters, Chuck Schumer and most recently our old friend Hillary (the loser) Clinton are among the celebrities rousing their crowds.

You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” according to Clinton. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. But until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

I read the above statement to say that unless the Democrats regain unfettered power in government et al, there will continue to be constant whining, crying and mobs throwing tantrums and creating chaos throughout the country. Give us back control or we’ll see to it that normalcy is never restored.

Adam Schiff recently promised “ruthless investigations” if Democrats take over the House in January and Nancy Pelosi becomes Speaker once again.

Is it right to threaten chaos, violence and endless disruption and stagnation of government just because the American electorate chooses placid growth and prosperity? Is this really the party we want running our country?

PLEASE VOTE WISELY ON NOVEMBER 6!  VOTE TO BE GOVERNED OR VOTE TO BE RULED, THE CHOICE IS YOURS.
