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?

BUT I HAVE NOTHING TO WORRY ABOUT

June 3, 2015

Ah yes, the easily spoken words of those who refuse to understand that once you give your freedom to the government they will do with it as they please. And, just like any temporary government program, the transfer of permission is never ending.

For the past few weeks there has been much talk (and name calling) about the Patriot Act and how it keeps us safe at the minimal cost of our right to privacy. The founding fathers saw to it that our privacy would not be infringed. It came in the form of the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States.

Amendment IV
The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.

On September 11, 2001 the United States was attacked by radical Islamic terrorists. On October 26, 2001, George W. Bush signed the Patriot Act into law. That is outstanding! We are supposed to believe that in just forty-five days a bill was written, read, passed through the House and Senate and signed into law by George W. Bush with the consent of a majority of Americans. That’s nearly impossible. The Speaker of the House can’t muster a quarum in 45 days to complete the task of signing a card for a retiring colleague.

We blinked and our elected officials took away our right to privacy by telling us giving them unlimited authority, effectively negating the Fourth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, was the only way to protect us against another horrendous attack.

You really don’t know what you might have done in the past or may do in the future that could be construed as illegal, terrorist, racist or just plain embarrassing in nature by the P.C. police or some nefarious person or agency. Did you ever think that rational patriotic political views would cause extreme scrutiny into the love life, family life, religious life, associations or the type of car someone drives? Well, it happened to numerous groups applying for tax exempt status.

Why? How? It happened because our government has gained too much power and control. Our federal government, all three branches, abuse their authority regularly because neither party wants to lose their future opportunities. Next time it could be progressives under the spotlight or women or people who speak with a southern accent or have an Ivy League education. It could be people who surf daily, it could be someone who owns a ranch. It could be you!

Your meta data is collected, compiled, sorted and researched by super computers at the NSA facility in Bluffdale, Utah. Any connection, no matter how remote, to a terrorist or even a political opponent of the administration in power or future political leaders is scrutinized and catagorized. It can be sealed or when necessary, contorted or re-contexted and used against you depending on who is in charge at the time and what outcome they desire.

So now it’s my turn to call names.  If you still think you have nothing to worry about, that there is no concern, you’re just flat out stupid.

A CLASSLESS SOCIETY

January 5, 2015

Of late, we have heard much about aggressive police over-reach.  Isn’t this exactly what the Marxists in our central government want?  It sure seems to be. Power-wielding by the IRS, DOJ, HHS, DHS, NSA, CIA and other bureaucracies has trickled down to the local level and they are ecstatic.  Look for the propagation of more envenomed discord in the near future that will continue throughout this presidency and perhaps beyond.

Karl Marx and Friedrich Engles developed the intellectual tenets of what is now known as Marxism.  Those tenets encompassed the existential areas of sociological, economic, philosophical theory that could be coerced and altered through vigorous revolution.  According to Marxist theory, the only workable society is a classless society.

One of the first steps toward a classless society is to create chaos in the current system.  Chaos or disruption identifies ineffectiveness.  If none exists, turmoil must be manufactured.  A situation repeatedly expounded on until it becomes a crisis then requires intervention.  Remember Rahm Emanual’s “Gruber” moment when he said, “You never want a serious crisis to go to waste”?  This is how to effect change where none is required.

Once shown as inefficient, the need for change to a new and better, more harmonic, system becomes obvious.  Socialism, by any name, is the choice presented.

A classless society where everybody produces equally to the benefit of all is Utopian.  Theoretically, it is the ideal society.  Practically, it is impossible.  As with most academic theory, the impractical aspects are overlooked.  If recognized, they are ignored.  First, there can be no classless society because there would be nothing but constant discord, “I want to wash, you dry”.  No, I want to wash”.  There must be leaders, decision makers, structure.  Immediately there are a minimum of two clusters, not one harmonious population.  There are leaders and others.

The very dwelling on the 1% v. the 99% is but one way to inseminate critical unrest.  The Occupy Wall Street movement received undue acclaim.  Random actions involving guns cause the unaware and unthinking to clamor for confiscation or control of private defensive firearms.  Continued media coverage of the current “Black Lives Matter” protests against police now posits the protesters desire to bring about change.  Introducing radical social and economic policies then chastising legislators for not endorsing them creates a divisiveness within government that requires the action of a singular pen.  That action creates further animosity.

Yet, the change these groups ignorantly and sheepishly claim to want, categorically leads to an even more oppressive central government, less autonomy and greater individual dependence, elimination of a middle-class and continued wealth reduction for the very poor.  It can only bring about an eventual form of global slavery.  The masters will again live high in the hills throwing their garbage upon the peasants below.

Who’s driving the ever-changing but ongoing protest movements in the United States?  Why, it is once again the same Marxist/Socialist/Communist celebrities…Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Eric Holder and a growing clique of confused and easily guided community organizers learned in the principles of Cloward and Piven, Alinsky, Marx, Stalin and other self-designated elite seers.

I pray for future generations.

MISSION STATEMENTS v. MILITARY ARMAMENT

May 18, 2014

We are soon to be under paramilitary attack by our very own government. It has nothing to do with National Security.

Our elected officials and presidential appointees are now doing everything possible to circumvent the U.S. Constitution; the President issues edicts for laws that cannot pass congress, the Attorney General picks and chooses which laws to enforce or have enforced and which to ignore, each federal agglomeration foists business and economy killing regulations upon us weekly, congress is so ideologically asunder regarding the Constitution that it can no longer function as a cohesive body, the NSA gathers more personal information about citizens than all U.S. and foreign marketing companies combined, the legal system is more heavily weighted in favor of ever progressive political correctness than law.

Now the armament. I have written about it before, but the problem keeps growing. The USDA, according to their own mission statement, is a government bureaucracy. It is not meant to be an armed force.

USDA Mission Statement:
We provide leadership on food, agriculture, natural resources, rural development, nutrition and related issues based on sound public policy, the best available science, and efficient management.
http://www.usda.gov/wps/portal/usda/usdahome?navid=MISSION_STATEMENT

Leadership! So why are they requisitioning black-ops style weapons?

“The U.S. Department of Agriculture, Office of Inspector General, located in Washington, DC, pursuant to the authority of FAR Part 13, has a requirement for the commercial acquisition of submachine guns, .40 Cal. S&W, ambidextrous safety, semi-automatic or 2 shot burst trigger group, Tritium night sights for front and rear, rails for attachment of flashlight (front under fore grip) and scope (top rear), stock-collapsible or folding, magazine – 30 rd. capacity, sling, light weight, and oversized trigger guard for gloved operation.”

Likewise, the IRS, TSA, HHS, BLM and even HUD are armed to the teeth with automatic weapons, JHP and in some cases AP (armor piercing) ammunition, armored vehicles, tanks and rocket launchers yet their mission statements http://portal.hud.gov/hudportal/HUD?src=/about/mission say nothing about uniforms and weaponry and have nothing to do with military style incursions.

Isn’t it about time America becomes a Democratic Republic again? Do we really want the central government control (tyranny / dictatorship) that is coming upon us?
