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.

GOODBYE CALIFORNIA

October 18, 2017

The citizens (and illegal aliens) of California want to secede from the union. What a wonderful happening for those of us who appreciate our nation. They want their sovereignty and we want freedom from their insanity.

Per usual, those of the liberal progressive left who want to become their own country see only the good points of being a nation of their own. They see not what they have already done to the region. They see seaports for trade and beaches for tourism. What they fail to see is the enormous debt liberals have foisted upon their state that must be absorbed solely by the new nation. (As of this writing, the spending exceeds the revenue by more than $28 billion <link> and is ever growing). Clearly, 10% of the state’s population is receiving food stamps (SNAP payments).  Many more also receive federal payments in the form of EBT, WIC, AFDC, SSI, etc.

They ignore the number of companies abandoning the region for more business friendly destinations. They rebuff the fact that the higher wage earners and wealthy retirees are exiting for states with more favorable economies and living conditions. They refuse to see that those people are taking their tax dollars away from the spendthrifts of Sacramento leaving behind a plethora of welfare awardees.

A reasonable person might see that each and every year, the state cries to Washington D.C. and FEMA for federal aid to adjust and offset the hundreds of millions of dollars worth of damage created by raging wildfires in the summer and flooding and mudslides during the winter months. Sonoma County officials, for example, are encouraging those affected by the recent wildfires to contact FEMA directly. All current federal access would go away and have to be paid by the few remaining California tax contributors.

When President Trump announced that taxpayers would no longer be illegally required to subsidize insurance companies as dictated under Obamacare, California (along with 18 other primarily Democrat controlled states) immediately hit the courts. California allows, even encourages, people in the country illegally to participate in the scheme that makes insurance expensive for the citizen taxpayers of all states.

Not only are nearly 900,000 people on the paid unemployment rolls in California, clearly 10% of the state’s population is receiving federal or combined federal and state welfare subsidies. Meanwhile…lawmakers of the state continue to pad their expense accounts and fund their retirements at the cost of citizens who often cannot even afford adequate housing.

That brings us to the homeless population and the diseases of such. California declared a state of emergency due to an outbreak of hepatitis A. At last count, nearly 600 homeless and indigent people have been identified as victims of this disease. Hepatitis A is spread by contact with other infected individuals or consumption of contaminated food or water.

While not confirmed, the CDC is looking into migrant camps where day laborers gather as the source. These camps are often found near construction sites and areas of agriculture. The day laborers tend to spend their largess in areas of lesser affluence, i.e. areas with high homeless populations.

Well, Goodbye California. Here’s hoping you do well on your own.

THE POLITICAL CLASS, ACADEMIA AND THE MEDIA vs. “WE THE PEOPLE”

September 6, 2017

I recognize that those who most need to read this and other like articles are the least likely to do so. It destroys their implanted narrative and thus must be rejected outright without review or consideration.

It doesn’t take a mental giant, or even an semi-intelligent public school graduate, to see there is a movement afoot to destroy the United States. Unfortunately, most of the imbued high school graduates and certainly the products of many four year colleges are so indoctrinated with “free” and “equal” and “diversity” and “acceptance” that critical thinking and reasoned observation is not within their purview. They cannot see or accept economic, social or political reality and cannot recognize what they are conditioned to bring about.

Today’s scholars, professors and teachers are bred on the disciplines of Saul Alinsky and Karl Marx. Marx predicted that the internal class struggle of a capitalist society would produce self destruction resulting ultimately in a socialist society. He professed socialism or an ideal classless society such as communism would result. Alinsky popularized the thinking of Marx and directed the initialization of his philosophy.

Alinsky alleged that the best method to effect change is to first create chaos of the highest order. He became the figurehead of the counter-culture movement of the 1960s and 1970s and is the mentor of the liberal journalists, teachers, professors and politicians (the reporters, guides and governors) of today.

Many of our current and recent generations, seduced by the authority of their “educators”, see only the initial and seductive stages of the socialist and communist doctrines. They have been drilled with the notion that these economic and political creeds result in global and total equality; everyone prospers from the efforts and production of the collective. The poverty and starvation that decades of submission to these philosophies is not admitted in the indoctrination. Only the ultimately infeasible Utopian representation is offered and revered.

From the chaotic state, the masses will accept any change to calm or abate the state of turbulence. That change comes in the form of socialism and ultimately communism. A soothing transition from capitalism and democracy might be termed Democratic Socialism; the first step to authoritarian dominance.

Each leader among the disciples of these philosophies believes he or she is the one to make the transition complete and viable. Every one who has tried has failed and each society transformed has suffered. The chieftains of the attempts often die under unexpected and mysterious circumstances only to be followed by stronger figures. The proles of these regimes toil endlessly for their meager existence while the elite governing class becomes enriched.

*Note the referral to two classes of these “equality for all” socio-political comradeships. This, in itself, illustrates a major contradiction to the professed uniform prosperity.

Without direct and personal incentive to produce and prosper for one’s self and family, there is little reason to work at capacity for others to benefit. Feudalism does not enhance the wealth of society. It drains the wealth from it.

I refer you to the totalitarian reign of the former USSR. For those with less historical background or initiative to do the research, read the current news coming out of Venezuela. Both of these nation states passed through the stage of Marxism, into socialism and into autocracies whereby the masses became starving chattel of the dictators.

Capitalism and democracy may not be the best forms of economy, government and civilization for it, too, is flawed. However, it has proven to be among the best for the greatest majority within. We, the U.S., are now at a negative point of transition away from personal responsibility and reward to that of dominance and submissiveness. With each new entitlement easing the need for self reliance, we move closer and closer to the proven failures of totalitarianism.

The United States is now in a hybrid state whereby public welfare is surpassed by government give-away programs. Charitably helping the infirm and incapable through public support is beneficial to a social and civilized community. However, making the lazy and sedentary comfortable and dependent with luxuries such as internet service, cell phones, monthly stipends, housing allowances and other benefits robs them of pride and incentive and allows the government to lord over them. The passive recipients democratically vote for more of the same not realizing they are electively contributing to their own servitude and that of their descendants.

The anarchists we see in the streets today are only ignorant players, for the most part. They falsely believe they are contributing to constructive societal change. Some are paid to organize and engage in protests and riots as suggested by Alinsky; to create chaos. The rest are dupes acting ignorantly, or on partial information regarding the projected outcome of their participation. Most are oblivious to the historical mistakes of multiple attempts to alter the social order. They are unaware of their contribution to totalitarianism.

TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT, TAKE DOWN THE COUNTRY

July 17, 2017

All the hype and hoopla about President Trump colluding with Russia to influence our election really has nothing to do with either Trump or Russia. It has to do with a man and his team wanting to change the ways of the deteriorated old guard; to make America, as we once knew it…Great Again.

The ignorance of those falling in line behind the Marxists who have invaded our nation and national political scene is absolutely amazing. The public and private educational institutions dominated by leftists (be they self-described as Communists, Socialists, Marxists or the deceitfully gentle term “progressives”) inbreed thoughts that equality is superior to ethic. Education in the liberal arts is nothing less than social engineering to a doctrine of socialism. The socialist indoctrination begins with the first contact children have with government trained and credentialed mind conditioners, aka elementary school teachers, and continues with each government “education” contact.

Even our military, formed to protect us from all enemies foreign and domestic, is now subject to the rules and regulations put forth by subversives. The “Rules of Engagement” instituted by the last administration lead only to the death of our defenders. They unnecessarily restricted our troops’ ability to take offensive action in order to win a battle. It is better to be fair than it is to win…equality for all. Unfortunately, our enemies don’t follow the same rules. President Trump has foregone the ideological micromanagement of his predecessor by returning that leadership to the knowledgeable generals and admirals of our armed forces.

Isn’t it amazing how little news the MSM shares about Cuba or Venezuela. These are the countries and economies our progressives wish to emulate. These are countries where there are basically two class economies; the elite and the destitute. This is the direction George Soros and the Bilderberg Group want to take the United States knowing that all nations of the world will then follow. A “One World Government” is the very definition of a two class system.

Those of us who see beyond the current hour misdirecting news flash are capable of chaining events. The long-term picture shows much beyond what is happening now. By relating recent history, current events, political endeavors and collective agreements it is possible to assess the ultimate goals of our “leaders”. Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030 are non-binding agreements conceptually advancing society to global communism.

What is the true goal behind Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030? Was all the speculation and examination concerning Jade Helm 15 exercises really wacko conspiracy theory? Is there a connective thread between the exercises of Jade Helm 15 and the One World objectives? These are the questions not asked by the rioters as they follow the memes of celebrities and political progressives hell-bent on exploiting the ignorant and unschooled mental adolescents.

The stumbling block in this scheme is the freedoms currently afforded to the people of the U.S. that give us the ability to fight back. However, unless more people pay attention and aggressively resist the resistance, the future of our grandchildren looks bleak. Major funding, provided by multi billionaires eager to faction populations and control the world through despotism is disbursed to ignorant minions who do the ground work on their behalf. Little do the Alinsky trained know-naughts recognize they are slaving on behalf of the elites to create their own serfdom.

The “Resist” movement is not about President Trump! It’s not about the Trump family. Trump and troupe are the misdirection of the One World leaders. The president is the shiny object, the directive point, because he refuses to fall in line with the anti-capitalist, anti-democratic and subversive globalists. The resist movement is nothing more than the cloaked but calculated harbinger to the implementation of Agenda 21, now morphed into Agenda 2030. It is the elite cabal’s engineered and cultivated lemmings unwittingly destroying their own futures and that of society as a whole in the name of socially engineered globalization. The end result, once fully implemented, is global communism. Soros is laughingly proud of his mindless followers and their progress.

The Resist movement is a product of about three generations of children attending public indoctrination camps where they have learned to lazily absorb and accept what is spewed. Thinking beyond and questioning what is professed is discouraged in public schools. The blind followers of the Alinsky trained, Marx idolizing teachers and professors carry out the messaging of their only known mentors by demanding rather than earning and protesting those who earn.

James Comey managed to scatter an investigation of unfounded allegations and innuendo submitted by anonymous sources in so many directions it will take years to follow the bread crumbs. He caused the convening of a special counsel to chase a line of negative allegations and innuendo proving he, too, is among the subversives as shown by his actions. Our government is dismantling from within.

By challenging every move the president makes, the Resist coup makes government even less efficient than government. (Yes, that is what I meant to say.) Distracting attention from the affairs of the nation is the goal of the left. How many times lately have you heard the leftist blurt, “He hasn’t achieved his stated goals.”

The idiot minions are seeking recognition for hitting milestones in accomplishing their objective. These are the same people that learned in school that there is no need for valedictorians because endorsing accomplishment demeans those who choose to laze and graze rather than achieve.

I don’t know any more than the average news consumer about the Trump-Russian intervention/collusion/collaboration issue. It may well all be true. It may also be true in part or completely made up. A definite concern, however, is the media drilling us each day and night with innuendo and unverifiable and unsubstantiated speculation.  It is not good for you, me or any American. Alinsky training makes them want to control thoughts and influence minds.  They know that repetition fosters a false pretense of credibility.

Personally, I would like to return to the country I served in uniform, where change is welcome and not to be denied.   Howbeit, total rescission of America’s foundation is inherently wrong.
