2020 SOCIALIST DEMOCRAT CANDIDATES

December 9, 2019

Looking at the candidates to defeat the nationalist currently holding office in D.C., one is bound to see some pretty wild characters and plots to overthrow the people of the United States.

Yes, I called the president a nationalist. I find he is neither a conservative nor a liberal. He might most closely resemble a libertarian, but he is not at all a libertarian. He is a strong defender of the U.S. Constitution, law and order from the military to the local level. He believes in a federal government limited in size and scope that is yet powerful enough to conduct business on behalf of the greater number of citizens throughout the country.

President Trump, as I have stated many times before in my posts, is not the person I would like to have representing my country. He is, however, showing to be the best and most capable person to lead this country at this time.

That said, the field of opposition to him in the 2020 election is bothersome to me and many other citizen patriots. We see the potential of losing the freedoms granted in the Constitution and the threat of forced acquiescence and servitude to an overarching government.

Looking at the remaining field of candidates running under the Democrat party (this is not a typo. I do not believe there is any remaining democracy in the people who call themselves Democrats). What appears on stage and in front of any available “reporter” are a troupe of individuals who proudly voice their will to overthrow our current economic, political and social structures in favor of a governing form known to have failed each and every time it has been attempted throughout history, leaving the citizens humiliated and in abject poverty.

With a population in excess of three hundred million, undermining our capitalist economic system in favor of socialism would not only destroy our country, but cause a reorder of the entire world of countries. It is a step toward globalism that could only ultimately create more warring factions with greater weaponry than exist today,

Just two of the policies proudly offered by the most prominent candidates will bankrupt the country within one four year presidential term. Those policies are open borders and universal health care (Medicare-for-All). Any thinking person can see how inviting the world’s unhealthy to partake of our free medical service would devastate any economic system within a few years, if not a matter of months.

Currently, people of means from around the globe come to America to receive the medical care they cannot get, or cannot get on a life-saving timeline, under the socialist systems of their home governments.

Add to the above proposal giving each person qualifying for any public assistance program (medicaid, SNAP, EBT, WIC, TANF, CHIP, LIHEAP, SSI, Section 8 housing assistance and more) $1,000 per month and you have the makings of a subservient population rather than one of independence offering contributory value.

The candidates, through their like-minded minions, have destroyed or removed from view symbols of our history and chronological writings of our forefathers. By eliminating contemporary journals and rewriting history, it is possible to educate upcoming generations with only one view of the possible. By offering “equality” to all through free entitlements, without a history of how such has destroyed societies, any desired goal is achievable no matter how irrational it is.

If there were another candidate with the mindset and capabilities of the current president, with a more likable persona, he or she would get my vote. As of today, I don’t see that person.

NEWS ALERT: HOW LIES BECOME TRUTHS

July 18, 2019

We hear what we want to hear, see what we want to see and accept what we choose to accept. Or, as with the quote often attributed to Marcus Aurelius, “Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth”.

It is becoming all too common. A statement, a tweet or gesture is taken out of context and spread across social media until it seeps into the realm of traditional media. If not prior, it then becomes the truth that many seek. The repetition makes it undeniable. It’s real. It happened, I read/saw it everywhere!

Because “somebody did something” some time ago, it is easy to conflate that happening to a glance, a phrase or motion giving it a meaning never meant. It is a ploy used effectively throughout our daily lives and is profoundly used by the main stream media and politicians.

While conflation for effect is used by both sides of the political aisle, it is used most frequently by the left and the far left. If you don’t believe what I say or act the way I believe is correct it’s because you’re a RACIST.

At Judge Kavanaugh’s Supreme Court confirmation hearing, a former clerk, sitting behind him, made a movement with her right hand. To Trump haters, this was a display of the White Power symbol. To some, it was a showing of “OK” as if she was agreeing with his answer or with the proceedings. To others she was simply scratching her left arm.

Michelle Obama: “All this for a Damn flag”, was accepted as a true lip reading at 9/11 commemoration ceremony and it became fodder for hatred of the first lady. It gained authenticity as the video and interpretation made the rounds. Nobody other than Michelle and Barack knows for sure what she actually said.

Go back to your country has been used so many times it has the same affect as calling somebody racist…none. Therefore, it can be used as a point of conflation when necessary.

Last Sunday, President Trump aired his frustration with four Democrat freshmen in a tweet. The actual tweet: “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

There was no reference or inference to their sex, heritage, race, ethnicity or national origin. There was no mention of any country yet the distorted version which is so prevalent is “Go back to their countries and fix their governments”. For effect, the Trump haters across the nation, in congress, in cyber, on air and in columns and “actual” news stories have conflated this tweet with a familiar admonishment.

The “Squad” to whom President referred in his tweet consists of:

Ilhan Omar – Minneapolis, MN – poverty rate for Minneapolis is +/- 22% compared to MN over all rate of 10.2%. 109% higher than the national average. For every 100,000 people, there are 15.73 daily crimes that occur in Minneapolis making it less safe than 97% of the cities in the United States. In Minneapolis you have a 1 in 18 chance of becoming a victim of a crime on any given day.

Ayanna Pressley – MA 7th district – Boston. A very diverse population. Poverty is 18.7% or 1.5 times the rate of MA and 1.4 times the national rate. Violent crime is 87.66% higher than the state of Massachusetts and 78.15% higher than national crime rate.

Alexandrea Ocasia-Cortez – Bronx/Queens, New York. 1.7 Million people (52% of her district’s population) lives below the poverty threshold. Chances of being a victim of violent crime is almost 3 times greater than anywhere else in New York State.

Rashida Tlaib – MI 13th dist. Includes half of Detroit. Median household income $29,863 (roughly half of U.S. income). Unemployment 24.7% (6.5 times the national average). Violent crime is second highest in U.S.

Is there still a question about what President Trump was referring to when he said, “Why don’t they go back and help fix the totally broken and crime infested places from which they came.”

If you watch or read nothing but opinion news from biased sources you’re left with only one viewpoint and therefore it is the correct one. If you favor the truth, you will avail yourself to multiple sources that vary in viewpoint, each containing at least a modicum of truth.

THE AGE OF BEWILDERMENT

March 11, 2019

As we enter election season, progressives want to lower the voting age from 18 to 16. There is a reason for this and it is not just to incorporate more people into the civic duty of electing officials. The reason is sinister.

At 16, even a working individual has not had the opportunity to evaluate how the earnings taken from his or her paycheck are being abused by their elected officials. Scientific and biological researchers and experts agree that the human mind develops slowly and is not fully capable of continuous rational thought and judgment until a person is in their mid-twenties.

Teachers of students in the public indoctrination system insist on having their bored but active charges put on psychoactive pharmaceuticals to enable greater access to the otherwise bright and thinking minds of our youth. This is also why the government wants to take control of children even before they enter kindergarten.

While yet of what I believe is sound mind, I am having great difficulty understanding some of what is foist upon us by our elected elite socialists under the guise of evolutionary progress.

  • The minimum age to buy and drink alcohol in all 50 states is 21 years.
  • One must be 18 to join the military/fight for your country and kill enemies
  • One must be 18 to buy a firearm on the civilian market…they want to move this to 21 because, they say, a person of only eighteen years is not always capable of controlling their impulses.
  • One must be 18 to destroy their body by smoking tobacco products to ruin their health
  • One must be 18 to obtain a prescription for health medications or have a guardian sign for them.
  • Most states hold the parents responsible for the liabilities created by and the welfare of offspring until their 18th birthday.

For all of the above, one must present proof of age in the form of a verified government issued identification generally showing a photographic likeness of the individual requesting service (except for voting).

These ages, agreed upon and established over decades as norms, are now under consideration for revision to accommodate Marxist/socialist goals of transforming our democratic republic into a state of dictatorship.

*Remember, it was Michelle Obama who said in 2008, “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.”

The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making. Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior.

VOTE16USA.org is dedicated to lowering the voting age to 16 across the nation. The organization says that such a move will improve voter turnout and encourage civic engagement. They offer heavy influence to the power-grabbing elite. Democrats in congress recently included lowering the voting age as an amendment in HR1 “For the People Act of 2019”.

From the website: http://nancyguberti.com/5-stages-of-human-brain-development/ (emphasis added to pertinent parts)

Stage 1: 0 to 10 months

~Neurons and connections growing.

Stage 2: birth to 6 years

~Development of voluntary movement, reasoning, perception, frontal lobes active in development of emotions, attachments, planning, working memory, and perception. A sense of self is developing and life experiences shape the emotional well being.

Our elected officials want control of this subset calling it Early Childhood or Pre-K development. By taking control of the early developing mind, it is possible to manipulate and subdue the child into the mold dictatorial socialists desire. They can “correct” responsive thinking early for compatibility with what they deem as new societal norms.

Stage 3: 7 to 22 years

~The neural connections or ‘grey’ matter is still pruning, wiring of brain still in progress, the fatty tissues surrounding neurons or ‘white’ matter increase and assist with speeding up electrical impulses and stabilize connections.  The prefrontal cortex is the last to mature and it involves the control of impulses and decision-making.

~Therefore, teenagers need to learn to control reckless, irrational and irritable behavior. Avoiding drugs, alcohol, smoking, unprotected sex and substance abuse.

Stage 4: 23 to 65 years

~Finally, the brain reaches its peak power around age 22 and lasts for 5 more years. Afterwards, it’s a downhill pattern. Last to mature and the first to go are the brain functionality of executive control occurring in the prefrontal and temporal cortices. Memory for recalling episodes start to decline, processing speed slows and working memory is storing less information.

~Best approach is to stay mentally active, learn new things, stay physically active and eat a very healthy diet. Avoid toxins, cigarettes, alcohol and mind-altering drugs.

Given the proven development pattern of the human brain, is there any question why Democrat Socialists want to lower the voting age? Total control and manipulation of their subjects, “We the People”, appears to be the goal.  It’s only one part of the social engineering for effect taking place today.

GET ELECTED TO CONGRESS AND VOTE FOR YOURSELF

November 27, 2018

Compared to men and women in uniform who willingly risk their lives to retain our way of life and give citizens around the globe humanitarian opportunities, our government elite are excessively compensated. For instance, a U.S. military member with a pay grade of E-6 (five earned pay grades above entry level) having given more than two years service to our country receives a base pay of only $2,802/mo.($33,264/yr.) This is scheduled to be raised for 2019 by 2.4% to a whopping $2,869/mo. A serviceman’s work schedule includes readiness twenty-four hours a day and often includes weeks on end without a stand down.

Compare that to the average Amazon carton handler who now earns $15.00/hr. That’s 2,580/mo. or nearly $31,000/yr. for placing boxes on a conveyor belt 8 hours a day.  When the bell rings ending the shift, they’re outta there!  An over-the-road trucker earns an average of $23.00/hr or almost $78,000 annually if they really go at it.  Consider what the average retail store manager is paid.  Good ones make approximately $46,000 a year.

Military accommodations often consist of living in tents, bathing in streams or ponds when available with clothing changes welcomed whenever possible. Granted, they do receive an extra stipend when deployed to areas or subjected to situations where death is imminent.

Why should congressional members protected by the secret service and capitol police make so much more?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez wears designer ensembles costing more than the average soldier makes in a month to her campaign venues. While campaigning, she has been seen wearing outfits of estimated cost exceeding $3,500 including shoes with a price tag of $625. Though she dresses for success, she’s whining that she cannot afford to live in the city or suburbs surrounding her new job.

Not even seated yet, the socialist darling of the left is suggesting legislation that would give congressional members a housing allowance in excess of the freshman base pay of $174,000. And, the members vote themselves raises at will. *Congress is required by Article I, Section 6, of the Constitution to determine its own pay.

Some current members, known to sleep in their offices and bathe in the gym locker room (not the Potomac River), have suggested a housing allowance while in session amounting to $2,500 per month.

Returning to reason perhaps we, the American voters, should consider something along the lines of a government housing facility for our downtrodden elected leaders like the projects offered by H.U.D. There are numerous vacant government owned buildings in and about Washington D.C. that could easily be converted into dorms or apartments.

For those choosing this option, the accommodations might be paid for by deducting $1,500 – $2,500 per month ($18,000 – 30,000/yr) from the base we now pay them. Nancy would consider it just “crumbs”. Most of them can probably scrape by on the remaining measly $144,000 per year. A transportation allowance of $5.00 per round trip to and from the dorm and capitol could be an additional benefit for consideration.

Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s next proposal is probably for a congressional clothing allowance and meal per diem to go along with the housing allowance. After all, we must redistribute the wealth from those who worked hard to earn their bounty. Soon thereafter, I’m sure, she’ll and the others will consider working for the people who elected them instead of what they can do to benefit themselves.  Yeah, right!

Congressional staffers and interns live and commute under the same circumstances and seem to get by on their pay of $30,000 – $85,000 per year without such perks. And they do much, if not most, of the work for which the elected elite receive their salaries.

OVERWHELM THE SYSTEM 2018 STYLE

October 29, 2018

In 1966, Richard Cloward and his wife Frances Fox Piven, developed a strategy to overload the public Welfare system and precipitate a crisis leading to the replacement of the system with a national guaranteed income that, in their minds, would end poverty in the U.S. This became well known as “The Cloward and Piven Strategy”.

Need it be said that they were both professors indoctrinating the leaders of today with the ways of Communism. As teachers at the Columbia University School of Social Work, they were able to instill Utopian thoughts in the accepting minds of today’s Progressive/Socialist/Democrats.

Their ploy has since become the mainstream thought and platform of the current Democrat party. As president, Obama did his level best to over-regulate private business causing mass unemployment and need for government “safety net” programs. With the help of community organizers, President Obama increased the demand on the nation’s entitlement Welfare system and carried the concept of induced poverty to include WICS, section 8 housing subsidies, Obamaphones and encouraged many former workers to partake of disability payments through the Social Security fund.

One Democrat, Senator Ben Cardin, recently suggested that we welcome the hordes of impoverished Central and South Americans of the caravan into our country, thus, further straining our current resources. Beyond that, he also called for “investing” more U.S. income earners’ money by giving the thieves heading the pseudo-democratic socialist dictatorships of our neighbors to the south greater opportunity to continue the practices that harm the citizenry of those countries.

Today’s amplified and exaggerated version of the strategy promulgated by the pair of anarchists envelopes more than the monetary subsidies extended by federal agencies. It is also burdening education, health care and the court systems. It is straining the civil, criminal and federal courts by introducing otherwise illegal foreigners to the courts in addition to citizens and legal residents.

Currently, there is said to be a backlog in the immigration courts exceeding 700,000 cases. Add to that the human procession estimated at 7,000-10,000 headed north from Mexico’s southern border. Their intent (actually the intent of the multi-billionaire globalists funding the incursion) is to destroy our sovereignty; to break down the borders that define our country and create chaos and anarchy. Many, if not most, of the intruders will be awarded benefits paid for by you and your fellow citizens.

The socialists among our population and elected leaders are destined to use the inevitable “crisis” created to further their goals of remaking our country into one from which people, in just a few short years, will try to escape.

There is only a week left to mark your ballot for continued economic growth, prosperity and rule of law or the likeness of Venezuela.
