PROMOTING “TDS”

August 1, 2018

Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) is a real and present mental health problem. TDS is now being treated by health care professionals under the name of Trump Anxiety Disorder because derangement is a negative term. The use of negative terms in today’s society is, in itself, enough to trigger highly emotional reactions that require professional mental health therapy.

It is a product of at least four decades of public indoctrination centers promoting liberalism. Fragilizing (coined term) society is a primary mission for the “institutions of education”. By distorting language terms to soften their effectiveness allows for exploitable ambiguity. For example: Steering youth first, then adults, from using terms such as boy/man and girl/woman to gender neutral terms like person homogenizes the individual. Removing a person’s individuality removes any incentive to excel or even succeed. Highest honor awards are perceived to demean all lesser colleagues and therefore every attendee must receive a trophy or certificate of participation without ranking.

The aggregation of youth held captive and brainwashed for three quarters of each year over a 12+ year time frame are those most affected by the psychological vexation. Social engineering to societal neutrality destroys personal incentive and self worth. Without self worth, adolescents are prone to extreme anger, suicide or sustained drug use to compensate for their lack of uniqueness.

This is contradictory to what our current president presents. His ideals include working hard, accomplishing, achieving and appreciating and respecting the outcomes. To younger generations, this is opposite of what they’ve been fed throughout their school years. They only know that they are equal and they deserve…without effort. They matriculated through their early years by showing up for class, at least by attending fairly regularly. Their testing, if any occurred, was graded not on correct answers or knowledge of the subject at hand, but on the student’s ability to embrace and regurgitate the personal viewpoints on the subject expressed by the teacher.

The aforementioned societal equality is why the X, Y (aka: Millennial) and Z (aka: Centennial) generations are so inclined toward socialism. They are used to having everything handed to them without putting forth any effort to achieve on their own. They believe (because they’ve been programmed to believe) that equality is a right. They cannot understand, because they cannot recognize through abstract thought process, that equality for all is truly subsistence for all. Further yet, there is a reluctance to accept that equality for all is a false and undeniably Utopian ideal.

Every societal structure has an elite governing body. With socialism and communism that elite body distributes and redistributes any wealth available among the recipients. That body of elites, due to human nature, will always take a bit more for themselves, leaving less for redistribution. Socialism is the elimination of any middle class, not all classism. Socialism, at it’s best, is the production of two very discordant classes.

The political bent of the majority of public school teachers and college professors and instructors is constantly projected into the malleable minds of those whom they are charged with educating. Where once the schools promoted “work hard and be all you can”, the new slogan might be “sloth in and be whatever you claim you are”. Additionally, what the kids of today get out of school is low self esteem and the ability to identify as a victim for any reason they deem. True education is a wayward by-product of the liberal mind molding process.

Given the upbringing of the ascendants to adulthood and those of recent adulthood there is little question why they consider President Trump a foreboding and threatening figure. He expects performance and excellence and he therefore threatens everything they have been led to believe about themselves, society and governing. He is extremely individual. No president has ever acted in such a non-presidential way. He is a leader, not a follower. He makes things happen rather than awaiting happenings then blaming others for inadequate outcomes or accepting unexpected consequences as within the realm of normal. He asks that we all participate in our lives and livelihoods. His very existence triggers the social fragility produced by progressives.

Because he was born before the liberal mania took firm hold, President Trump is considered a deviation from what has become the norm. He wants and expects adherence to laws that keep us safe and maintain social order. He treats others (individuals and countries) equally and fairly…perhaps heavy handed at times, but equally and he expects others to reciprocate. Going along to get along is not the way of a Commander in Chief who produces positive outcomes.

Because he is a leader, because he deviates from political protocol, he is upsetting a component of society that only knows a soft and gentle life. He is triggering a segment of society that cannot handle any adversity. There are members (almost a cult) within our culture so used to taking a pill or seeking professional coddling to allay their self induced fears and frustrations that they cannot even stand to hear the name Trump without physically assaulting someone, breaking something or setting something aflame that does not belong to them. And, they expect to do so without repercussion for they’ve been taught throughout their formative years that violent civil disobedience is acceptable when they feel they’ve been wronged or believe something negative might be in their future.

This is truly a derangement, but it is not President Trump’s fault. The progressives who have fragilized our children and grandchildren under authority of the public education system are to blame. They are the ones responsible for the suicides and violence and dissociative behavior of the current and past three generations. It is the ideologues in charge of teaching our children who are causing them to become deranged.

Yes, there is a Trump Derangement Syndrome. It is real. It is promoted by our education system and the media that seeks only negative and announces every nuanced or perceived pessimistic action performed or word spoken by an adversary. It is not just Trump, TDS or anxiety disorder, is now excited by any deviation from a progressive mindset.

FROM THE RIGHT AND FROM THE LEFT

June 26, 2018

Oh, how we mock thee. Let me count the ways. (Sorry Liz, the devil made me do it)

Today’s big story is IMMIGRATION. As with everything we hear and see on the news, there are two sides presented, one from the MSM and the other from a few right of center outlets. The truth finds itself somewhere in between the presentations offered. In seeking that truth, we must be aware that the meaning of the word journalist has been severely bastardized. Virtually every news reporting comes with a predetermined inclination to influence.

Let’s start with some definitions

Journal: a record, usually daily, of the proceedings and transactions

Journalist: a person who practices the occupation or profession of journalism

Journalism: the occupation of reporting, writing, editing, photographing, or broadcasting news or of conducting any news organization as a business.

The media, be it print, cyber, radio or TV, tend to incorporate their bias on any subject, politics in particular. The cyber world is undoubtedly the most balanced, yet many social media interactions are edited and culled by operators disposed by a liberal mindset.

The “Main Stream Media” has the greatest influence on most people simply due to their dominance in the field of “journalism”. The left, or progressive (aka socialist) side of the political spectrum, unquestionably has the strongest hold on the profession; the loudest and most frequent voice, therefore the most influence on any story. They coerce opinions of their followers through repetition.

Facts no longer matter to today’s news reporters. What is conveyed to the public is willfully distorted by the opinion of the writer, editor, newscaster, station or publication. Trying to find the truth of any important matter is as much fun as Congress passing a bill “to, ah, find out what is in it”.

By the time the truth is identified, the damage has been done and any apology or correction that might be offered is relegated to time cloaked obscurity. Any correction or retraction is overshadowed by a more current and attention demanding announcement.

On TV: The news and commentary stations constantly battle one another presenting their interpretation of the day’s or week’s happenings. In doing so, often they will use clips from another or other stations’ airings as counterpoint to their own offerings of the truth in news. Then the counter point is mocked.

What I have found is that when the major broadcast and cable stations do this they almost always use FOX as the one to present. The clips from FOX News may include hosts and guests making statements about a particular subject. The opinions often vary little overall but do have a variety of personal interpretations. FOX uses clips primarily from CNN and MSNBC but often includes some from ABC, NBC and CBS as well as audio from NPR. A montage from this collective, however, sounds like a variety of voices reading the same script.

There are key words and phrases used in each clip from the MSM collective. One of the latest is, “…ripped from the arms of his/her breast feeding mother…”.

Wow, what an emotion compelling phrase. It provokes disgust and induces hatred toward law enforcement and this administration. Powerful and opinionated statements such as this do not convey the truth about mass illegal entry at our southern border.

Iterations of this phrase have been uttered multiple times over the past two or three weeks on virtually every major station by either pundits or anchors. The children, in each case are “ripped from the arms”; not taken, not separated, not lifted, not removed. They are “ripped from…”. It’s like one script has been handed to each leftest station and they are told not to vary from the script.

This is exactly why I choose to watch and listen to both sides of any political discussion. I know that the truth is somewhere between the hatred of the left and the apologies of the right. With the last administration, it was the disdain of the right for dictatorial policies and the defenders on the left for a country on the path to autocratic socialism. America should be somewhere between the extremes.

If more people would pay attention to other than just what feeds their own beliefs or emotions, I believe there would be a lot more calm and understanding. And if those people with direct access to events would accurately portray them to the public, it would go a long way toward easing the acrimony they now advance.

This democratic republic experiment deserves an opportunity to survive. History shows us that other forms of governance do nothing more than enslave the mass population while those at the top thrive.

ANYBODY WHO BELIEVES IT’S THE STUDENTS SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED TO BUY A GUN

April 13, 2018

There’s a lot of attention recently given to David Hogg and a few other “survivors” of the MSDHS shooting of February 14, 2018. However, the high school students are only pawns of the anti-gun movement. Those who believe the students are in charge are obviously mentally ill. Such a belief indicates that they are incapable of rational thought.

Even those indoctrinated in the Marxist/socialist centers, aka public schools, must recognize there is no way for a small group of students experiencing a traumatic event to organize these marches and media campaigns. The permits alone for the marches cost thousands of dollars. This group of students probably couldn’t afford the cardboard on which the slogans are painted or professionally printed. Few, even with the help of parents, could afford to travel to the protest sites like Washington D.C.

So, who’s funding and organizing the students and “their” protests? It’s the same cabal that funded and directed the last administration. It’s the “resistance”, the George Soros (Gyorgy Schwartz) crowd. It’s the billionaire One World government – Agenda 21 – Agenda 2030 – America hating Communists who are leading the mush-minded school kids and dim-witted adults who refuse to comprehend what they ask for.

If you want to control gun violence, keep guns away from the mentally ill, criminals and those who are easily and ignorantly duped; those who are too stupid to know they are being used. Those are not people who should be followed. Quite the contrary; those are people who should be feared because they are easily propelled by people with evil agendas whose violence is a proven acceptable means to their end.

The “education system” has, over the past few decades, taught our children how to be victims and how to follow. The current youth generation is afraid of themselves and can only take in the worst of society. Only a few have the rare capability to think for themselves or see beyond victim hood. Those who do are considered privileged. Choose what you like: (white privilege, class privilege, male privilege, female privilege, gender privilege, race privilege, etc.) and vehemently rail against it, but certainly don’t take the time or make the effort to better yourself for that will give you a contemptible privilege.

So, why do they want to take away our guns? It’s so that a powerful and well armed centralized government can further dictate your existence. It’s the means to the end. The end is Communism; government ownership of all property with tightly controlled rationing of food and all other necessities to the minions who ignorantly followed billionaires’ leadership to destroy their own world.

We must make sure they cannot aggress or defend themselves with weapons. They are too unstable and dangerous.

 

OUR PUBLIC EDUCATION SYSTEM IS REALLY AN INDOCTRINATION CENTER FOR SOCIALISM

April 9, 2018

Hmmm, kids being used to promote socialist government agendas. Not exactly a novel thought!

Kids being schooled in government run facilities teaching Marxist/socialist themes and values sounds a lot like what happened back in the 1930s in a land far, far away. First to happen was a total loss of freedom unless you were a member of the elite government. Next came the privatization of industry and the end was totalitarianism. Food and other staples were rationed except for those at the top of government. It was promoted as equality for all though questioners or complainers were incarcerated or killed outright.

Obama would like to have a million Baracks or Michelles to help drive their agenda (not unlike that of Hitler). The two of them almost buried our country by themselves, with a little help from their friends (Holder, Lerner, Lynch, Brennan, Clapper and Comey to name a few), in only eight years. What would a million of them be able to accomplish?

One recent Pew poll shows that greater numbers of millennial women are identifying with democrats. And, it seems that the higher education level, the greater the progressive identification. Men are also leaning left, just not in the same numbers. Could this have anything to do with the power of progressives promoting socialism in the education system?

High school and college students of the 1960s formed their own marches against the Vietnam war with legitimate reason to do so. They were of, or soon to be of, draft age and could find themselves in uniform fighting in that war. The protests back then were funded primarily out of personal donations. Back then, demonstrations with a purpose cost a few hundred to a couple of thousand dollars to obtain the required permits and communicating within the school system to get the word out. Most were protesting the horror of war not knowing or caring about the Communist doctrine.

Today is different. The massive rallies run tens of thousands to millions of dollars and are paid for by billionaire globalists using the K-12 system of indoctrinated youth.  Teachers today drill students to revile the freedoms of personal responsibility, democracy and capitalist economy in return for socialist and Communist values. The participants are programmed to want and expect equality for all regardless of the effort to achieve any particular outcome.

Oh, how easy it is for socialist teachers to influence the minds of children by teaching gender fluidity and global warming instead of history, English, math and science. Students are encouraged to engage with the teachers as they ask how many guns your family owns or how many pills your mom takes.  Gathering family data is a major part of the current curriculum in many public schools.

Obviously, if world history and global economics were taught in public schools, the globalist design would be defeated from the start. Enough of the subjects would be able to see what might be expected after the glorified Utopian beginning of a self imposed two tier (elite/servile) society. The history of Venezuela over the past three decades would be an excellent example and a place to start.

Gun control = step one to subservient masses.

 

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.
