TRUMP vs. THE SWAMP

October 30, 2017

I am not a Trump supporter. I did not vote for President Trump in the primary though I did vote against the lying, conniving and corrupt malefactor known as Hillary Rodham Clinton in the general election.

That said, I find myself tending to defend the president’s attempts to make America great again more and more with every attack on him from the left and established politicians of both parties. It is not necessarily because I agree with everything he’s doing, it’s just an innate need to counter-resist the insanity that is pushed into my face and senses every day.

I have, from before the beginning of his presidency, believed that he will do what he can to make the necessary changes to the political inbreeding of the past century. The eight year period prior to his inauguration was filled with Alinsky divisiveness to turn this country into a Marxist/socialist experiment. The Constitution was shredded with executive orders, underhanded and corrupt dealings, illegal and unnecessary regulations, fines and confiscations.  Many of President Obama’s actions and those he encouraged were contrary to our founding documents and laws passed by congress thereafter. The courts are just now getting around to ruling on and reversing those violations.

President Obama sliced and diced the country thinner than any Ginsu cutlery could and in more ways than one can count.  He pitted blacks against whites, poor and working Americans against their wealthier counterparts, workers against management, women against men, Latinos (even American Latinos) against other Americans, gays against straights and virtually every possible faction and subset of our society against those whose views were different. There was no compromise. Deep and wide chasms were formed where dialogue once existed. By his promotion and organizing, discussion became vitriolic and dislike became hatred.

The task of restoring our democratic republic is only made harder by those entrenched in government stalling and combating the president’s every effort. This is coming not only from those elected to congress, but from the career bureaucrats who view change as a threat to their existence. It’s as if they fear their effective tenure inoculation will be rendered deficient. In reality, any change to increase efficiency and economy is truly a threat to them. Some may even have to quit playing GTA and watching as much porn on our computers during the work day and get a little work done.

It happens to be Donald Trump, a man with a tendency to be direct and abrasive when demeaned or belittled. However, it could be anybody in the White House trying to make major changes and correct the course of the current and failing political structure in Washington, D.C. (the swamp). There are simply too many public functionaries anchored throughout the halls of all federal (now feral) entities for a small cadre to overcome within a few months. Congress stalls appointments and the intelligence and law enforcement arms refuse to cooperate for fear of indicting themselves. They seem to still be taking orders and directions from the immediate past president who forms and organizes public and private resistance just a short distance from the White House.

I’ve been watching politics since the mid 1970s, perhaps a bit before, and this is the first time that I can recall former presidents and congressional members (without respect to party) attacking a duly elected president outright. Yes, there have been one-off snide comments, snipes and innuendos over the years, but nothing like the unmitigated onslaughts that happen on an almost daily basis. This year and last has been a circus of has-beens, wannabes and other losers trying to one-up each other and take their 15 minutes of celebrity by shooting the captain in the back before scuttling a seaworthy ship.

To restore law and order, the filthy swamp must be drained, dehydrated and incinerated.  We voters must then refill the void with new and hygienic resources in Washington, D.C. and our local governments.

HOME GROWN TERRORISTS IN OUR CITIES

May 1, 2017

There’s a lot of talk about home grown terrorists today. A major fault of the conversation is the concentration on Islamic terrorism. While this is a valid concern, it is certainly not the only and maybe not the most dangerous threat to the United States and the people herein.

Islamic terrorists want to destroy those of us deemed infidels. They want Sharia as the law of the land and the world and they are willing to impose it upon us by any means possible. Killing with guns, bombs, automobiles or any method available is not to be scoffed. These radicals cause fear and terror as we assume our daily duties. But they are not the only terrorists.

The fascists / communists calling themselves Antifa and Black Lives Matter are of equal concern.  While fascism is generally considered a far right doctrine, the activities are also a far left concept. Philosophers and historians, recognizing a pattern of similarity, developed the Horseshoe theory whereby the left/right spectrum is not linear but more like that of a horseshoe.  The two radical and violent factions are far closer than normally accepted because the methods by which they choose to accomplish their goals parallel one another.

The horseshoe theory makes sense. In the past, I have questioned some of the actions of the far right (militias and militant anarchist groups) because they seem to be those which, to me, looked to be those of the radical or loony left. Since becoming aware of the horseshoe theory, that question is answered. The radicals at both ends of the spectrum could at some time join forces for some movements.

Thus, classifying far left groups and their leaders who terrorize others with violence and mayhem as fascists, is not the misnomer many choose to believe. In order to intimidate rally participants, disrupt meetings, speakers, parades and events with which they don’t agree, they often do so by inciting anger, becoming violent and using weapons. They break windows, burn buildings and cars and use mace or pepper spray, fists and rocks to silence their opposition. That is terror; that is fascism! Even what’s left of the press in Venezuela refer to these tactics as rioting. Our (center left) news sources generally prefer to call them peaceful protests with a few incidents.

These terrorists got their running start with the elections of 2016. The useful idiots are commanded from behind the curtain by George Soros and his sub-lackeys (Obama – the community organizer, Schumer – the Democrats balker in chief and Warren – another hate spewing fanatic) through myriad organizations funded and directed by the above.

Remember the quote from Michele Obama, “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation”?

Political correctness taught to our youth and forced upon us is intentional and nefarious modification of our language. (changing our conversation) Eliminating references to Christmas and Easter, the removal of all civil war statues, portraits and plaques; the renaming of buildings, streets and schools are simply illustrations of her quote from 2008. (Changing our traditions and history)

Like any radical Islamist group like ISIS, these people want to destroy America. They want to eliminate our heritage, our history and any good the future might bring.

The “protests” began early in the election to stall the Republican party and the increasing base of Donald Trump. They continued through the election and rapidly escalated to violence with the vote on November 8. Today, the anarchists find any venue possible to express their fascist viewpoints.

In typical leftist maneuvering, they blame anyone and everyone other than their own actions for their actions. They blame the police who arrest members for breaking the law.

The time is coming to fear these groups as we do our world enemies. They are here now, they are home grown and they are viciously violent. Soon the tide will turn. Patriots will withstand only so much. After that they will turn from center right to far right and respond in kind. Personal defense at rallies will become equal and opposite. Blood will be shed on both sides as the puppet masters giggle hideously.

The country is on very shaky ground right now. Not only do we have nuclear threats from the Middle East and Far East, we have to watch our backs at every large gathering we attend.

Perhaps ISIS and other radical Muslim groups are not the only major threats to our nation.

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!

 

 

 

 

SUNDAY NEWS PROGRAMS…THE FEAR AND THE SPIN

January 25, 2017

I spent Sunday morning triple flipping. That’s what I call it when I take in the political lies and spin from three TV stations at once. I tend to change channels between CNN, FOX and one other. Often the third is MSNBC but depending on the time, it could be a broadcast station. This week it was Media Buzz on FOX, Meet the Press on NBC and Reliable Sources on CNN.

This week, the three stations listed above had quite a spread of topics. I was particularly interested in the discussion on CNN. Thus, I spent the majority of my morning viewing time with them. All the while triple flipping, however. They (CNN) spent the better part of the program (I estimate about 24 min. air time) talking about nothing other than honesty in the Trump administration. The panel discussed how they expected information would be shared with the press and the American people and how reliable it might be.

The gentle diatribe seemed to center around how they would interpret and interpolate what came to them in briefings and what they were able to glean otherwise through their (chuckle, chuckle) reliable sources. It sounded much like they were afraid that if they tried to spin too fast, too hard or too much they might actually but unwittingly and undesirably present the truth. Whoa, careful, careful!

Of the entire discussion, I heard not one utterance regarding the lack of credibility of information they received over the past 8 years. Not one word. Nobody brought up Fast and Furious. No one offered dialogue about “If you like your doctor…” or “…no family making less than $250,000 a year will see any form of tax increase”. My hearing deficit may have precluded me from hearing anything about the myriad scandals (within the “scandal free”administration), coverups and lies about them that these stations, and almost all others, ignored. But that might be because President Obama said in 2013,“This is the most transparent administration in history”.

Politiks is politiks! There will always be things happening within our government that may never be known until we’re all long gone. There will be leaks from and about virtually every event by almost every department. Some of those leaks will be for real and some will be purposefully misleading. It’s a matter of how we receive, and personally analyze what we receive, that can leave us with knowledge. Or, we can rely on the opinions of the powder-faced journalists, reporters and pundits to guide us through life.

For myself, I choose to see what happens. Prejudging what may occur and trying to alter the perception of what actually does occur to meet my preconceived allusions is too difficult.

The coming four years is unquestionably going to be different from the past eight years. It well might be a disaster, but I’m willing to see and judge it for myself…on what happens, not what is said about what might happen. If it all goes to pot, there’s always impeachment and removal from office. With Republicans in charge of the congress, and not afraid to be labeled racists, it could happen. President Trump could also make America great again.

I’ll be attentive and not at all hesitant to be critical of anything I see, read or hear coming from Washington, D.C.

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?
