ENEMY or FRIEND???


I have read articles, talked to, and listened to black individuals over the past few months who are from various backgrounds, educational strata, and economic conditions.  I have found a common theme among many of that community in which they express that they do not consider what has been happening in the interest of the black community.  Some of them have openly declared they consider Black Lives Matter, ANTIFA, and other organizations the enemy not the friend of African-Americans.

I have had some black and white people tell me that Black Lives Matter is like the Tea Party and it is a grassroots black-created, and black-run organization designed to fight racism.  Those holding that view believe that BLM is a needed organization and doing a valuable service.  I have researched and discovered some things that suggest that might not be the case. 

I discovered that BLM was the creation through a consortium of a few very wealthy individuals, non-profit corporations, and the media.  The official BlackLivesMatter.com website states it is a ‘global network foundation’ active in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada.  If it is a ‘global network’ I began to ask who funds it?  That produced some revelations that were more than a little confusing and troubling, in light of the argument that it is a ‘grassroots’ black created and run organization.

What did I discover?  Funds were coming from George Soros’ Open Society Foundation, Rob McKay the Taco Bell heir, the Ford Foundation, the Borealis Philanthropy, the Democracy Alliance, and numerous other Leftist groups.  It would be difficult to claim that it is a black-run, black-funded grassroots organization with those facts in mind. 

The movement began in 2013 as a result of the media’s emphasis or suggestion that there was a systemic problem due to unjustified and racially motivated killings of black men by white cops.  That was the spin but if you examine the facts you find that a bit skewed. 

There is an insistence that there is an epic rise in the number of police shootings of black men.  Statistical data suggests otherwise and even suggests they are on the decline not incline.  The BLM and media rhetoric are that the number one enemy of black men is the racist white cops and the police are systemically and institutionally racist and need disbanding. 

Let me bore you with some statistical data and you decide what you think.  If you deem me a racist for presenting these facts that might be revelatory of a deeper problem, not in me but… Well, you know what I mean. 

There is the FBI Uniform Crime Report that anyone can examine.  It revealed that in 2018 there were 2,925 blacks murdered.  The amazing and alarming facts are that 89% of them (2,600) were murdered by other blacks.  That report indicates that in 2018 209 blacks were killed by the police.  Some justified and some not.  What does that say?  If 2,600 were killed by other members of their ethnicity and 209 killed by the police, which is a greater problem?  One gets 100% attention and the other a ho-hum, nothing to see here, move on attitude.  Where is BLM regarding those killings?

The killing of George Floyd was not just tragic it was unacceptable and worthy of condemnation.  However, Mr. Floyd became a media star with massive ad campaigns presented and he became a household name.   At the risk of being attacked and branded something I am not; I ask who was George Floyd?  That question is not designed to mean that his celebrity status or lack thereof before makes his death, less important.  It is designed to call attention to the fact that he was not the saintly civil rights leader he has been portrayed.

Mr. Floyd had a history of criminal and even violent behavior.  He was released from prison in Houston, Texas in 2014 after having been arrested for aggravated robbery.  He had been in jail, five other known times.  He had been arrested for theft, drug possession, and criminal trespass.  He was deemed to have been the leader of a home invasion ring and according to document, police files his behavior was less than passive. His ring entered a woman’s home and threatened to kill her as they ransacked her home.

Does that justify his killing?  NO!  But what of the hundreds of blacks killed by other blacks, are their killings justified or unworthy of address?  Mr. Floyd’s death became a useful tool for BLM and the media to advance an image that all cops are bad and therefore the entire system must be dismantled.  That leaves everyone, blacks, whites, and all others in danger and exposed to further violence.  How is that in the interest of black or any lives?

Some politicians have suggested that we decriminalize crime and eliminate the need for the police.  If you said, “That makes no sense,” you are right, it doesn’t.  There is the argument that all drug offenses be decriminalized, and pardons issued for all blacks incarcerated on drug charges.  What would that do to solve any perceived racial issues?  I suggest that would not reduce the number of violent offenses but if you do that and disband the police you would see violence and theft increase exponentially.  That is the push from today’s Democratic Party, BLM, ANTIFA, and other leftists organizations.

I suggest that rather than solving the issues facing black communities where black on black crime is already rampant it would escalate it.  What is the endgame of the backers of BLM and other organizations such as it?  It is about control, and as in every example of despotic tyranny that has ever existed, once the tools used to achieve their objective have served their purpose they are eliminated, incarcerated, or disposed of in some fashion. 

I weep for those who have honestly been deceived by the diabolicalness of those coordinating the destruction.  They are and will be damaged more severely than anyone can imagine.  If they suddenly awaken and realize they have been used, what will happen to them psychologically?  I fear that the product of that reality will be equally as damaging as what has been happening.  Everyone should oppose racism and injustice.  However, destruction is not the solution and from my Christian perspective, I believe that if we would follow God’s directive, we could solve this issue without bloodshed.  Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.

God bless you and God bless America!

SANITIZED HISTORY: The Enemy of Truth and Freedom…


The situation in America is more than a little disconcerting and the handwriting is on the wall if we do not rectify the direction of the country immediately if not sooner.  It was bad enough that we have been forced to endure what could only be called a house arrest for months. Now we are subjected to an intensified push to rewrite and sanitize our American history.  The lunacy and historic illiteracy involved will not affect only this aspect of our American system of government and way of life.  It will touch everything, and everything will be damaged if not destroyed in the process. 

Sanitizing and rewriting history will not change the reality of what transpired it will only serve to eliminate the needed understanding of the errors and prevent us from avoiding them in the future.  I’m not sure who can be credited with the quote, “History is not there for you to like or dislike.  It is there for you to learn from it.  And if it offends you, even better.  Because then you are less likely to repeat it.  It’s not yours to erase.  It belongs to all of us!”  I shout, AMEN! 

Edmund Burke is credited with saying, “Those who don’t know history are doomed to repeat it.”  George Santayana’s original quote was most likely, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”  In a 1948 speech to the House of Commons, Winston Churchill paraphrased it, “Those who fail to learn from history are condemned to repeat it.”  All apropos and germane to the current Sanitization Effort by the Left, BLM, ANTIFA, and the Politically Correct Activists operating prolifically in today’s climate. 

Removing a statue, a memorial, a name from a public building or a sports team does not change the past.  I will not argue that it is never appropriate or acceptable to rename something. However, to completely sanitize history and attempt to remove all reminders of our past is to engage in historic illiteracy that will produce a society ignorant of history and give us not teaching tools to avoid the errors of our past.  Most of us learn by trial and error.  We do not learn everything through that pathway, but we learn many things that way.

I learned not to touch live electric wires by accidentally or stupidly touching one.  I learned not to touch a hot stove by touching one, even with my mother warning me not to do so.  I learned not to ignore wet paint signs and resist the temptation to touch the object by doing just that.  I learned to keep my mouth shut after opening it and having it shut for me a time or two.  I have learned many things that have proven to be positive reinforcements in my life through trial and error.  I try to remember the bad as a warning and remember the good as an encouragement to pursue the benefits of the lesson learned.

It seems that the ‘woke crowd’, the ‘millennials’, ‘BLM’ and ‘ANTIFA’ along with an almost endless list of other groups believe that it is their responsibility to eliminate everything they deem offensive from history and the public square.  We are witnessing the fruit of about three decades of modern educational historic sanitization. 

Too many in modern academia are participants in the leftists’ attacks of everything about our history, our founding, our founders, and our system of government.  The image many of the products of modern education are taught is that America was founded as a racist, homophobic, xenophobic, misogynistic, and immoral society.  They argue that it was built on the backs of slaves and through the aristocracy stealing from the poor workers. 

Those wanting to remove all traces of historical memory of the Civil War and Slavery have made it their mission in life to remove all memorials, statues, pictures, and plaques of anyone and anything connected to that era.  They began with Robert E. Lee and other generals and reminders of the Old South, but it did not stop there.  They have targeted Christopher Columbus, George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abigail Adams, Winston Churchill, and the list continues to grow.

The Democrats, in power, have forgotten that those Southern Leaders were Democrats and even the more modern history that in 1964 the Democrats engaged in the longest filibuster in American history, attempting to defeat the Civil Rights Bill.  A bloc of Senators led by Richard Russell (D-GA), Richard Byrd (D-WV), and Strom Thurmond (D-SC) pulled off a filibuster that lasted 60 days. 

Democrats like Joe Biden, Barack Obama, and Hillary Clinton think those men were virtual gods in the Democratic Party.  Imagine that, the party that is the home of a majority of those wanting to Sanitize history were attempting to perpetuate discrimination.  How ignorant can we be in America?  Don’t take that as a challenge but a rhetorical statement.

The Sanitizers defaced the memorial of the first all-volunteer black regiment of the Union Army in the Civil War, the 54th Massachusetts Regiment.  It was exactly 123 years to the date that it was dedicated that they defaced it.  That is beyond lunacy and reveals that these riots and many of the protests have nothing to do with George Floyd or any claimed abuse by the police.  It is about destruction and when those who know no history are allowed to roam free unimpeded and not held accountable, destruction occurs. 

They have defaced the statue of Cervantes, a slave himself, captured by the Barbary Pirates and enslaved in Algiers for five years before being ransomed.  He was enslaved by African pirates.  I suggest that this kind of mindless destruction is a prime example of the absence of literacy in far too many today.  

I believe that it can be traced to several things.  The home with the absence of proper guidance by a father and mother is a key element in our failure.  The failure of our educational system that seeks to rewrite and sanitize history is a significant part of the problem.  America’s decline in our moral fiber is an undeniable element.  I believe that when we kicked God out of the school and sought to ban Him from all things public and government we moved in the wrong direction and escalated our decline.

There are the demands that Universities cease singing their school songs, charging them with being racist.  Sports teams are being forced to change their names and drop mascots because they are offensive to some.  The Texas Rangers baseball team is under the gun because the ‘woke crowd’ deems the Texas Rangers (law enforcement) racists in its formulation and practice.  Where does it end?  IT DOESN’T unless we regain control of our society, restore Law and Order, and realize that the Sanitization of History only creates problems of the same type and worse than what our real history is. 

I do not support slavery, and do not want racial injustice toward anyone to be experienced.  I desire an America where the vision, dream and expressed desire of our founders is realized.   I desire an America where we recognize that all are created equal and have been given certain inalienable rights by our creator including the right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  I want an America that is One Nation, Unified, Indivisible, and affords Liberty and Justice for everyone regardless of their social standing, ethnicity, or religion.  I want an America that can truly be called a Christian nation where our moral moorings are restored. 

I do not want a history taught that has been Sanitized and opens the door to a virtual guarantee that we will repeat the mistakes of the past and go beyond them negatively.  I want to know the good, the bad, and the ugly of our past so that we can build an America that reaches the highest potential we can and returns to being, a Light of Hope for the world.  The insanity of the Sanitization of History and the agenda of the Democrats demands that I vote against them in every election and I will do so in November.  I hope you join me and prevent the advancement of historic illiteracy to continue and keep America the Free Constitutional Republic she was founded to be.

God bless you and God bless America!

IF BIDEN’S LEAD IS INSURMOUNTABLE WHY ARE THEY???


Doing what, Roy?  Why are they making plans to oust President Trump after his reelection is what I’m talking about?  If there is as much chance of Trump winning as a snowball surviving in hell, why bother?  In my mind, it makes no sense to spend time laying the groundwork to challenge his reelection if that is not remotely possible.  But then I don’t think like the liberals.  I try to allow logic and reason guide my thought processes, but again, I’m not a Donkey so maybe I’m not thinking clearly.  After all, we are told that only Donkeys and Anti-Trump Republicans can engage in any sane cognitive activity. 

Before COVID-19, the panic, pandemic, paranoia, and overly aggressive measures imposed on everyone, the economy was roaring, and Trump was almost guaranteed a second term.  The events following the introduction of this virus into America destroy that economy and it does not appear it can recover fully by November.  It is argued that tosses running on the economy out, at least partially.  I still contend that Trump can reflect on where we were and where we would have been had the Obama-era economic conditions existed at the outset of COVID-19.  Reasonable people would respond positively to that reality, but then we are talking about 2020, so who knows.

The president’s endurance in the 24/7/365 assault by the Left, the Media, and the Nevers has been almost super-human.  No, I do not think he is a superman or a saint, but I do believe he loves America and cares about what is happening, has happened, and could happen to this nation.  I do not believe he would have run or continued after the first year or so had that been not the truth.  His personality may be grating even on those who voted for and will vote for him again.  He is a New York fighter and when pushed pushes back.  He has a massive ego, like virtually every politician in Washington, and craves recognition.  Those may be negative to many, but I try to look beyond the personality to the production and the overall body of work is positive. 

One of the things that make me wonder about my nation is the incredible passivity with which we succumbed to the lockdown, mandates, and infringements.  I won’t argue over masks or no masks, but the infringements in many other areas are deeply troubling.  I hear people insist that COVID-19 will disappear shortly after the election. I do not believe that they will let it disappear that easily.  I say that, not because of the seriousness or lack thereof of the virus but because of the newly found power in the political elite.  They will not cede that easily and therefore will continue to milk the ‘crisis’ gleaning every edge into the foreseeable future. 

This is not a passing infringement and will become the new normal UNLESS.  Unless what?  Unless we soundly and thoroughly defeat the liberal leftists globalist socialist Marxist communist in November.  Yes, I called the agenda of the Democrats those things and I stand by that assertion.  If that places me on your list, then so be it. 

The admission of the Black Lives Matter co-founder that they are all trained Marxists should be troubling to everyone.  The insistence that we defund or redirect funds designated for the police is not meant to correct systemic racism by the cops but to realign power. 

In today’s world, I can only imagine the depth of trepidation any police officer experiences as he or she begins their day.  If they do their jobs, they may be indicted or murdered.  If they fail to do their jobs they may be indicted or murdered.  If they do what they are supposed to do, they receive no thanks but are lumped in the same basket as all of us who rejected Hillary and voted for Trump.  They are assigned their place in the Deplorable Basket.  It is getting crowded in here, but welcome to my world.

Some governors and mayors claiming their assault on the police major victories for humanity and even insist that their cities and states are safer.  However, the data, facts, and statistics reveal that emptying the jails, ceasing to enforce the law, and allow anarchy to run amok is not producing safety but the opposite.  I argue that even a blind and deaf person could see and hear the fallaciousness of their rhetoric. 

The CDC and other organizations are manipulating numbers with a multi-pronged intent.  They want to hurt President Trump’s reelection bid, and they want to pave the way to a forced vaccine.  They have tasted power and when the power-hungry taste power it becomes addictive and the more, they get the more they want. 

The quote from Federalist No. 51 either from Alexander Hamilton or James Madison is apropos to today’s situation.  “If men were angels, no government would be necessary.  If angels were to govern men, neither external nor internal controls on government would be necessary.”  But we are flawed humans being governed by flawed humans and therein lies a revelation of the problem.

Will Law and Order prevail and turn the tide of the election?  I don’t know, but I do believe that if the anarchy and rioting, looting, arson, theft, and murder continue many Americans are going to become fed-up and wake-up.  Will that be enough?  I do not know.

I believe that I am seeing a move within the members of the law enforcement community and they are abandoning the Democratic candidates in favor of Trump.  The National Association of Police Officers (NAPO), with a membership of 241,000 have endorsed Trump.  In 2008 and 2012 they endorsed the Obama-Biden ticket.  The shift is significant, and Biden did not bother to address the group.  Maybe he assumed he had them in his pocket or maybe he knew that the position of his party was anathema to all clear-thinking law enforcement members.

I laugh when ‘news outlets’ like CNN present Biden as a man of faith and insist he has the evangelical vote because of his piety.  I’m sorry, but piety is not the word I would use to describe him, nor is it a word that I would readily use for the president.  They both have flaws, but Biden’s support of abortion and his promise to overturn the rulings of the SCOTUS regarding the Little Sisters of the Poor and the Hobby Law decisions.  Joe Biden will attempt to force people to abandon their faith and religious convictions in order to implement his healthcare agenda and political ideology.  That is pious?  He supports abortion on demand and is okay with forcing people of faith to adapt to the politically correct view of life.  That is pious?  Sorry, but that dog won’t hunt for me.

But, if Biden’s lead is insurmountable and as in 2016 the election is in the bag for the Democrats and they are going to enjoy a super-majority in the House and win the Senate is factual, why are they concerned with Trump?  

I pray they are wrong, and that enough Americans will awaken and smell the coffee and reject them in November to stymie their plans.  I am voting to Keep America Free, Make America Safe, and Great and be One Nation Under God that is Indivisible and one that seeks to provide liberty and justice for all.  I am voting to keep America the America of the vision of the Founders expressed in our Declaration of Independence, “endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights including Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”

God bless you as we move deeper into the election cycle.  God bless America!

AWAKENING THE UNAWAKENED…


The more I pray, the more I consider what is happening, what can happen, and what will happen in America I keep sensing in my heart of hearts the need for an Awakening!  We have multiple camps ideologically and politically in today’s America.  Those factions, as in any war, are forming unusual alliances and partnerships with all factions believing they will ultimately control the alliance. 

There are those on the Left who are followers of Marxism, Liberalism, Socialism, Communism, and Racism and they are hellbent on not only defeating Donald John Trump but fundamentally transforming America.  It is easy and difficult to see what they envision as the needed transformative state.  I say easy, because of the obvious visible events, rhetoric, and pronouncements.  I say difficult, because, there appear hidden agendas within each of the factions within the Leftist Alliance. 

I have become convinced that many do not see where we are, and the dangers posed by some of the agendas being advanced.  For those who identify as “Never Trumpers”, I cannot believe they see the danger but have allowed a personal animus toward the man to prevent them from considering the clear and present dangers.  They believe that people like me are either too ignorant to see the evil man in the White House or we are blind cultist not worthy of hearing our pleas and arguments. 

I have heard and read their declarations that Trump killed Herman Cain because he had a rally that Cain attended.  That ignores the actions of the Protester/Rioters who are burning America to the ground.  That ignores the potential dangers of public contact.  They seem to ignore the actions of New York’s Mayor and Governor endangering senior citizens and others by placing them in Nursing Homes and things of that ilk. 

There seems to be the desire to blame Trump for an economy that was decimated due to the virus and the lockdowns, claiming his response was too little too late and he is inept in dealing with the problem.  That requires ignoring the rhetoric of the Democrats, in the beginning, claiming there was no danger, including the illustrious Dr. Fauci.  That requires ignoring the claims of racism, xenophobia, etc. when Trump banned travel from China and highly infected areas.  But, alas, Trump is the evil one and the greatest danger to our Republic so all the blame must be laid at his feet.

There are those who claim that Biden helped lead us out of a Depression, but Trump has plunged us into one.  I cannot fathom that logic, but when I review what the Democrats have expressed as their desire and objective upon occupying the White House, holding the House and reclaiming the Senate I cannot wrap my head around how Trump is somehow a greater danger than those people, politics, and policies.

Biden wants to destroy the fossil fuel industry.  He wants to repeal all the Trump tax cuts that were proving effective for most Americans and boosting our economy.  Our unemployment rate was the lowest it had been and our economy was robust but the virus plunged us into economic oblivion and much of that was the result of the inaction or negative actions of the Democrats in Congress, the States, and Cities across America.  But to those who have hated Trump from the beginning, it can only be his fault, because they do not like him. 

Joe Biden and the Democrats have launched a visible and definable war on our Freedom of Speech, our 1st Amendment Rights.  They have expressed a renewed desire to restrict or infringe upon our 2nd Amendment Rights.  They have defended lawlessness but attacked law enforcement and private citizens who defend themselves and their property.  Some of the major players in the Democratic Party have expressed their desire to hinder if not destroy our Religious Freedom if we are followers of the Judeo-Christian Faith. 

President Trump’s personality is not why I support him.  If that were the only thing I had to go on, I would oppose him and most politicians.  He is brash, rash, egotistical, and a shoot from the lip New York street fighter.  But, alas, are the Democrats any less brash, harsh, angry, antagonistic, egotistical, and loose-lipped?  Joe Biden’s mental acuity is to be questioned and cause for concern.  The infrequent declarations of members of the Democratic Establishment and the talking heads indicate he would be, at best, a figurehead.  One high ranking Democrat said, “Biden’s black VP female running mate would be ready to be President from day one.” 

I know that what I am saying will cause those who detest this president to call me many unkind names and deem me one of the ignorant minions who blindly deify the man.  I do not, and frankly, most that I know who voted for him and will again do not fit that description.  We love America!  I am not saying that the Never Trumpers do not love America.  I believe that most of them love this nation deeply and as deeply as those who are in the same camp as I am. 

I have been attacked and called a cultist and a worshipper of Trump but when I question the source of the articulated hatred toward him, I am attacked.  Those in those camps insist they do not Hate but Love.  They love America so much that they believe the best course of action is to defeat and destroy the evil orange man and to make their view more palatable they claim that failure will destroy the Republic.  How they ignore the stated objectives of the Left and are unable to see the intended transformation and destruction is beyond my ability to cognate. 

I believe that to have opposed Trump and call yourself a Never from the beginning cannot be based on results.  There were no results at the beginning, therefore, to continue that animus seems to require ignoring the full body of work and focus on isolated situations, events, and actions.  That, in my view, is blindness and although may be well-intentioned it presents as great a danger for the Republic as the avid followers of Marxism, Socialism, and Liberalism. 

If you believe me to be beyond rescue and my views anathema to you and your core beliefs feel free to disassociate with me.  I am not extending an invitation for you to unfriend me, but saying, if you do, I will understand.  We are so far apart in our views that we have become antagonists and our fight for what we believe presents a condition where there is no cordial or common ground.  If you are willing to cede the Republic to the Left, I must ask, “Can you not see the damage was done under 8 years of Obama, and the intended and promised damages they are proposing?” 

I cannot support any party that wants to fundamentally transform America into a totalitarian authoritarian nation.  I cannot support any party that wants to tax us into oblivion.  I cannot support any party that wants abortion and abortion on demand.  I cannot support any party that is anti my Inalienable Rights of Freedom of Speech and Religion, Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and wants to control my ability to Pursue Happiness and Live.  There are many more “never” that I could add but a political party that is as demonstrably Anti-God and Anti-Faith is impossible for me to support. 

You must follow your heart and do what you believe best.  As for me and my house, we will continue to support the President in our fight for Faith, Family, and Freedom and our desire to preserve the Republic as the Constitutional Republic our Founders Established.

God bless you and God bless America!

IT WAS A WONDERFUL LIFE…


America, the land of the free and the home of the brave, you had a wonderful life. If anyone wants to see what America would look like had Clinton won or if Biden wins, look around you at the chaos, anarchy, and lawlessness.  If you, for one second, think all this will be reined in once the Democrats reclaim governing power, you are delusional.  You can attack me for that statement, but if you will read the rest of what I am going to present, you might, I did say might change your mind.

As many of you know, I pulled back from Facebook and other Social Media for a few days to pray for America, my wife, and attend to some things that needed care.  During that time of periods of fasting and much prayer, I believe I saw and heard in my heart a clarion call from Heaven for America.  You may or may not agree, and I cannot address all that I sense, see, and feel in this post but will speak to a few things and hopefully they will resonate inspiring you to Stand Up, Stand Against, and Stand Strong for Life, Liberty, and the ability to pursue Happiness.  I pray that you will see the dangers and join the throng of us who are beating the drums of warning. 

One of the things, that I will not adequately address is HATE.  I felt the conviction of the Holy Spirit and the quickening in my heart that we MUST quell the hate and regain order if America is to survive.  Surrendering to hate will produce nothing but disaster and our need is not more government but less.  Our need is not more violence but less.  Our need is not the abandonment of our moral and biblical principles but returning to them and the retethering our moral mooring lines.

The old almost ancient movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life” could serve as a reminder to us of what can be if we fail to stand for what is right and continue to do what we know to do regardless of the circumstances or opposition.  When we look around the globe at the countries that are embracing the views advocated by the Leftists, Marxists, Socialists, and the Anarchists we quickly see how inhumane those regimes are.  In those nations, people face shortages beyond belief and as in Venezuela, a once robust and relatively free nation has been plunged into abject poverty through the very economic and governmental desires of the Left in America. 

I am reminded of the words or warning of John Adams, “The moment the idea is admitted into society that property is not as sacred as the law of God and that there is not a force of law and public justice to protect it, anarchy and tyranny commence.”  That is where we are in 2020 America and should Biden and the Democrats win in November, we are guaranteed the continuation and escalation of anarchy and should brace ourselves for the ensuing tyranny that will follow. 

The Democrats are using somewhat of a “Wag the Dog” effort to hide the deficiencies of their chosen candidate(s) and using smear tactics on all who resist their agenda.  The shenanigan actions with the A/G Barr by the Democrats should have every America shouting at their televisions for them to “Cease and Desist” but that is not happening.  Refusing to allow the accused to answer the accusations is a revelation that the charges are bogus, and the accusers fear being exposed if the accused is allowed to offer any defense. 

The devastation that is occurring in various Democrat-led cities in America should scream out a warning of the dangers of the Leftists Policies and the failure of Appeasement.   I was born but young during the Korean War. I served in Vietnam and I have watched the decline of our society toward a depraved condition.  In the 60’s when I graduated from High School and in the late 60’s served in Vietnam, I witnessed the depth and power of anarchy and wondered what the outcome would be in America. 

When I gave my heart to God and became a Christian in the very late 60’s, I was filled with hope that revival, restoration, and renewal would come.  I thought that what I had discovered in Jesus would be the healing balm of our world.  I found that not everyone is receptive to the Peace God offers but are filled with self to the point that Hate is more prevalent and powerful in their lives than Love.

I was stunned a few years ago when the Democratic National Convention booed God and have systematically sought to remove all mention of God and the Bible for the public square.  I wept when prayer, even silent prayer by individuals was banned in our schools, and the willingness to deny the opportunity of life to that innocent unborn soul in the womb.  Each decade, and now each year brings us nearer and nearer to a state of godlessness that is dangerous for our society.  You may not agree, but as a Christian, I believe that ONLY GOD can truly save this world and each of us.

When I look at what is happening in Chicago, Portland, Seattle, Minneapolis, and other localities in the United States, I tremble.  We are on the brink of an abyss of destruction from which we can never recover.  I am stunned at how many people still view what is happening as ‘peaceful’ and ‘justified’. 

I am stunned at how many people still view Biden and the Democrats as a better option than Trump.  Is hate for the man powerful enough to warrant the relinquishing of the Republic to tyrannical destruction?  I pray the answer is no and millions will awaken.  One of the things I heard in my heart to pray for was “Enlightenment of the Minds” of Americans and then that once we see the Truth we will “Gird up the loins of our minds for action.”  It takes more than seeing the problem to rectify it and preserve liberty, it takes action!

Now, the anarchist in Portland led by BLM are burning Bibles.  How can any believer or any American not be alarmed at that action?  That screams that this is not about police brutality, George Floyd, systemic or institutional racism but a desire to dismantle our Western Civilization and ‘fundamentally transform’ America into a Marxist nation with totalitarian governance.  Sadly, the factions within this unified effort all believe they will be the ones in control and that will produce more violence and anarchy.  America will cease to be if this succeeds.

How does burning a Bible protest the perceived or genuine racism by police or any other group?  In China, churches are being closed and Christians ordered to sign a pledge renouncing their faith.  Is that coming to America? Yes, if this is not stopped and if the Leftists are not stopped.

Let me insert the views of the German poet, in 1820, “Where they have burned books, they will end up burning people.”  I now ask you to remember what happened in Germany on May 10, 1933, where they burned more than 25,000 volumes in Berlin’s Opera Square.  That was presided over by the most intellectual of the Nazi leaders, Dr. Joseph Goebbels.  What happened during WWII under Hitler?  They built and used ovens to incinerate Jews, undesirables, and dissidents.  They will do the same in America if they are afforded the opportunity.

America, we either defeat the Leftist, Marxist, Socialist, Globalist, Progressives agenda or we sign our own death warrant.  You may not consider Donald John Trump, the 45th President, worthy of holding that office, but please consider what is at stake.  If you will look at the Big Picture and the Whole Body of Work, you just might change your mind.  Our Freedoms are at stake and our Republic needs her patriots to rise and defend her.

ELECTION INTEGRITY – A Must for A Free America…


I believe it is vital for our survival as a Constitutional Republic to have legitimate elections.  The need for election integrity is not optional.  If we allow those who want to commit mass fraud in the upcoming and future elections to prevail, we will be shooting ourselves in the head.  It won’t be a wound to the foot, but a fatal shot to the head that will end our republic as we know it.  If you are okay with that, then the Democrats are your cup of tea.  I am adamantly opposed to losing our republic and believe that we must achieve and maintain integrity in our elections.

I would argue that one of the only ways we can achieve election integrity is voter IDs for every legitimate voter in America.  Other countries have this and those who argue that it disproportionately affects various ethnic groups, I say balderdash.  That is a lie being bandied about for political purposes hoping to engender support for the radical leftist’s cause of ‘fundamental transformation.’  The fallacious assertion of the Left must be debunked.  We must fight the current attempt to completely revamp our mode of elections.  If we fail, we will lose the White House, the Senate, and have no hope of recovering the House from the stranglehold of the followers of toxic liberalism.

The fabrication that requiring Voter IDs would result in fewer people being able to vote is ludicrous.  How many on Food Stamps or other government subsidies find it impossible to claim those benefits due to the requirement of a Photo ID?  None would be the correct answer.  In Alabama, which has mandatory voter ID, the black vote turned out in droves to elect Doug Jones in 2018. 

We must have Photo IDs to do many things in our daily lives, why should voting be different?  I have heard the argument that many, seniors do not have birth certificates and therefore cannot get an ID.  If that is true, how are they drawing Social Security?  I am not saying they all have birth certificates but that is not a preventative.  For one to legally drive on the streets of America we are required to have a driver’s license.

It is a requirement to have an ID to draw welfare benefits, purchase a firearm legally, get married, board an airplane, and in most cases to check into a hotel.  I’ve never obtained a loan, bought a car from a dealership, purchased insurance, or many other things in life without presenting my identification.  I find it strange that people function quite well in America obtaining and enjoying the many goods and services afforded us, but somehow a Voter ID would be detrimental and somehow racist. 

In America, we are supposed to have ‘one person one vote.’   That system must be preserved and protected else we open the door to massive voter fraud.  How better to determine a voter’s identity than with a valid Photo ID.  We know that there are documented cases of people registering in multiple states and voting multiple times.  A legitimate ID along with a nationally coordinated database would help reduce those incidents. 

Not only do I believe we need Voter ID, but we need to regularly and consistently purge the voter rolls of deceased people.  We need to ensure that those voting are legal citizens.  We need to ensure that those voting are not felons who have lost their voting rights.  Why would any American not support or desire Election Integrity?  That is easily answerable because they want to cheat or don’t mind cheating.

Some countries have a mandatory Voter ID.  Interestingly, some studies indicate that those countries are deemed to be more voter-friendly than the United States.  They require voter IDs, but we don’t, and they are more voter-friendly!  That is interesting.  Norway mandates that voters present a photo ID, including a passport, driving license, or bank card that includes a photo to vote.  In Northern Ireland, voters must present an ‘acceptable photo identification’ to vote.  Germany requires that voters have state-issued voter ID’s to vote.  Also, France, Israel, Mexico, India, and Iceland require voter ID. 

I read the transcript of a conversation between an election official in Greece and an American that exemplifies our problem and the fallacy of the argument against Voter ID.  The American citizen was filming a documentary and asked an election official, “Can I vote?”  The official said, “Not without a valid photo ID.”  The American said, “So you have to see proof that I am a citizen and who I claim to be to vote, right?”  The official said, “Of course!”  The American said, “Well, in America we don’t have to do that.”  The official was surprised and said, “You mean you can go to vote and not have an ID?”  He then said, “How can they know, you are the one you say you are?”  They can’t and that’s the problem!

Voter IDs have been adopted in numerous countries seeking to preserve election integrity.  They want to prevent fraud and multiple voting by individuals.  They realize that voter fraud is destructive to the integrity of their elections.  America has the greatest system of government known on the planet and we openly allow voter fraud by failing to take the needed steps to better ensure the integrity of our elections.

The latest move to have our elections conducted via ‘mail-in-ballot’ would virtually guarantee voter fraud, ballot harvesting, and ballot-box stuffing.  I don’t care if it is done in favor of the Democrat or the Republican, I want no part of it.  I want the election to be legitimate and whoever wins is the winner.  I may be unhappy with the outcome but if it is a true reflection of the sentiments of the legitimate voters, I will live with it.

The Democrats are using the fear generated through the COVID-19 pandemic to steal our elections.  I make that accusation without apology.  I can see where there would be some who are unable to vote in any other manner than via mail.  I am supportive of those people being able to legitimately vote.  I want safeguards to ensure that those votes are not votes by someone other than the person voting.  If Grandma is 95 and suffering dementia, I do not want son, daughter, grandson, or granddaughter or anyone else filling out her ballot.  If she is no longer capable of making a reasoned and rational decision, she should not vote.  Just because she is alive does not mean that her family or some activist group can decide for her.  One person, one vote, not take the name of a person and cast a ballot for them.

Someone asked, “If President Trump signed an Executive Order making a law requiring voter ID would you support it?”  First, he cannot make a law, that would have to be passed by Congress and if it was a constitutional amendment it would have to be ratified by the states.  I doubt that an Executive Order would be constitutionally defendable.  This is a matter that the individual states must take up and any state that wants election integrity should move to enact such requirements.  It impedes no one from voting.  The state DMV’s issue ID’s and if a person is incapable of getting to the DMV, how are they getting to the poll to vote? 

I want everyone who is legitimate and takes the necessary steps to register to be able to vote.  I want Integrity in our Elections.  I did not like it when Barack Obama won but since it was deemed the result of a legitimate election, I dealt with it. 

God bless you and God bless America!

WHAT IS THE ROOT OF DESTRUCTION IN AMERICA?


Any decay begins with a definable cause and unless it is discovered, diagnosed, and treated the decay results in death and destruction.  That is a principle that is unavoidable in nature and life.  It is true in relationships, business, the plant world, in our physical bodies, and spiritually.  A Republic’s foundations are always in danger of erosion and decay if the principles of republicanism are not carefully defended and guarded. 

Our Founding Fathers were cognizant of the dangers of a Direct Democracy and Hamilton and Madison addressed it repeatedly and profoundly.  They both viewed the Grecian Style of Democracy a certain pathway to destruction and an open door to anarchy that would lead to totalitarianism and the rise of a dictatorship. 

They, as did most of the Founders realized that the only hope the fledgling nation had of survival and success was a Republican Form of Government.  No, not a Republican or Democratic Party but a system of Government with an elected representative form.  They wanted a system with definable checks and balances they could not envision the system of professional politics of today.  They warned and we failed to listen and now we are reaping the fruit of our apathy.

Madison and Hamilton believed, rightly, that the Athenian citizens had been swayed by crude and ambitious politicians who had played on their emotions.  Imagine that?  Can you see any correlation to what is happening today?  The Athenian demagogue Cleon was said to have seduced the assembly into being more hawkish toward Athens’s opponents in the Peloponnesian War.  He canceled debts and debased the currency plunging the nation into a state of weakness that resulted in her demise.

Madison saw the rise of impetuous mobs as a group “united and actuated by some common impulse of passion, or of interest, adverse to the rights of other citizens, or to the permanent and aggregate interests of the community.”  Wow!  He could be speaking to 2020 America, but he was speaking in the late 18th Century, not the 21st.  

He believed that factions arise when public opinion forms and spreads quickly, but dissolve if the public is given space and time to consider long-term interest rather than short term gratification.  Thus, he sought to avoid a Direct Democracy that would virtually always end in anarchy and chaos with a few nefarious inciters directing the chaos.

I don’t know if you are aware of Noel Ignatiev or not but let me give you his philosophy and one that is being pursued by Leftist in today’s America.  His philosophy: “White does not mean white.  White in radical parlance means anyone of any race, creed, nationality, color, sex, or sexual preference who embraces capitalism, free markets, limited government, and American traditional culture and values.”  Who is he?  He is a white American Russian, who is the ideological founding father of numerous radical black movements in America and Black Lives Matter founders are some of his most prominent students.

This former Harvard professor finally answered the question regarding why BLM and others in that movement are so incensed when someone says, “All Lives Matter.”  He revealed that the ‘black’ in his interpretation is a revolutionary Marxist, not an ethnicity, but an ideological follower of a cause.  His view and many of the followers of his and the Marxist philosophy is that anyone and everyone who disagrees with their philosophical ideology should be eliminated.  That takes peacefulness out of the equation.

He and others who are avid Marxist advocates and inciters of the riots and upheaval in America believe that for anyone to embrace the idea that “All Lives Matter” is to blur the concept of the enemy and bring confusion to the minds of the revolutionaries.  They see it as weakening their cause and therefore, must insist that it not be allowed.  It allows whites to not embrace white guilt and enables those who believe they are victims to hate with justification and impunity.  That is a sure path to total destruction of a society and system of government.  That is their objective.  It is not ‘black lives’ that the organizers are concerned about but the destruction of the American system and our Republic. 

Are there those caught up in the chaos that truly wants change and believes there is systemic racism that must be addressed?  Absolutely and they are being used as pawns in this conquest unwittingly and that is doubly sad.  When well-meaning people are deceived into believing that the cause for which they are willing to fight and die is just, they become tools of their own destruction.

According to this philosophy, ‘black’ is not determined by the level of pigmentation in the skin, but in the commitment to the Marxist dogma and doctrine.  That would mean that men such as Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, and Justice Clarence Thomas are not, in their view, ‘blacks.’  To those following this philosophy, many Americans are not ‘black’ because they do not embrace the Communist and Marxist doctrine and philosophy. 

Noel Ignatiev was born in America to Jewish immigrants from Russia.  He was a third-generation communist.  He was a member of the Communist Party of the USA from the age of 17 and a member of its most radical ultra-left wing of Marxist-Leninists.

Let me shock you with another of his views and the views held by Marxists and there are variations of it being advanced in today’s upheaval and struggle.  He said: “Eventually white women can breed out, but my feeling is that if you are a white male, you should kill yourself now.  If you are a thoughtful person, with a social consciousness who considers himself white, you will consider suicide.”  We are fighting a cultural war that is deeply rooted in Marxism and it is not racial but ideological.  If we fail to recognize the true conflict, we will lose the war.

He and others following this ideology desired and desire the establishment of American Gulags where whites are re-educated into blacks (meaning Marxists, not ethnicities).  He said: “The goal of destroying the white race is simply so desirable it boggles the mind trying to understand how anyone could possibly object to it.” 

In my mind, we are seeing a precursor of that in the kneeling of police officers, military personnel, and politicians in front of a crowd of blacks (blacks from a Marxist point of view).  That is a surrender to the idea of the leftist ideology having supremacy over the law.  It is to give that ideology a position of higher importance worth and value than the American Constitution or the Bible. 

For all those who have been caught up in what they believe to be a righteous and just cause in fighting for justice and racial equality, let me offer one more view that the Marxists hold regarding you.  Their philosophy and ploy are: “Make no mistake about it: we intend to keep bashing the dead black males, and the live ones, and the females too, until the social construct known as ‘the black race’ is destroyed.” 

They are not a friend of whites or blacks, they are the friends of evil and total control.  We are merely tools to achieve their end and if we do not stop it now, we will be defeated and destroyed.  The Democratic Party is buying into the anti-American, anti-capitalism, and anti-free market view embracing Socialism and Marxism.  The Democratic Party has been co-opted by the radical Left and if we let them regain power it would be no different than committing suicide.  The result would largely be the same. 

In 1997 an article was published in the Race Traitor magazine.  The article was entitled “The Point Is Not To Interpret Whiteness But To Abolish It.”  An excerpt reads: “When it comes to abolishing the white race, the task is not to win over more whites to oppose “racism”; there are “anti-racists” enough already to do the job.  The task is to gather together a minority determined to make it impossible for anyone to be white.  It is a strategy of creative provocation.”  Simply, THEY WANT WAR!

America, I cannot and will not be silent!  We are fighting for survival and we, either return to God, seek to amicably and peacefully discuss our issues, and restore Law and Order or we fall prey to the Marxists’ ideological agenda that has been in the works for decades.  This is not black vs white or Democrat vs Republican is is Good vs Evil and we must not let evil win!

God bless you and God bless America!

IS THERE ENOUGH DIRT TO DETER ANY DEMOCRAT FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE?


By running for office, I mean ANY political position or office.  The commitment of the media to protect and defend any Democrat makes me think the answer is no.  The willingness of the media to launch full-scale attacks on any Republican or Conservative that seeks to prevent their ascendency to power, makes me say no. 

I had a person of some political acumen and knowledge suggest that although there are rumors and scenarios that in Biden’s impending decline and possible ouster, Michele Obama would not get in the race.  I am not convinced of that because Michelle and Barack love the limelight and power.  I am convinced that the Democrats all believe that with the incredible ease this country was ‘locked down’ they can use pandemics and crisis situations to issue edicts that strip us of our liberties.  I believe they see that as a pathway to the fulfillment of Barack Obama’s threat or promise to “fundamentally transform America.”  They see that as their inroad to totalitarianism and tyranny.  It is their ticket to rule and rule with an iron fist.

The various governors and mayors who have ruled with ‘iron fists’ in the COVID-19 or coronavirus pandemic reveals their desire and willingness to become tyrants.  They all claim that it is in the interest of ‘saving lives’ but often it seems more about exerting their political muscle than the health of their citizens, the economy, or the nation.  Power is addictive and those who lack the needed integrity to resist the temptation to dominate and impose their will on others will always overreach.  They will continue that on every occasion afforded them and until they are stopped.

Stopping them is where the rub comes for me.  If we continue the pathway we have been on since the outset of this pandemic I wonder if anything short of a revolution will reclaim our freedom.  I do not want that.  I resist that.  I do not encourage that.  As a Christian and a patriot, my first thought is God and prayer.  My second thought is involvement and voting.  I think of the Constitution and remain hopeful that enough Americans will be awakened by this situation and see the dangers lurking in the shadows.  Some dangers are not hidden but have been brought to the light of day and the more would-be tyrants are allowed to inflict their ‘iron-fisted rule’ the more they are exposed.

Mayor DeBlasio tweeted a threat to the Jewish community over the actions of a small segment of that community.  He tweeted: “My message to the Jewish community, and all communities, is this: the time for warnings has passed.  I have instructed the NYPD to proceed immediately to summons or even arrest those who gather in large groups.”  That was over a group of Chasidic Jews, in large numbers, attended the funeral of a well-know neighborhood rabbi. 

The Mayor recently informed the public that the city would be providing 500,000 free meals to NYC’s Muslim community.  Imagine that.  Did he do the same for the Jewish community or the Christian community or any other community?  I am not aware that he did.  He said, “Ramadan is a holiday reminding us of the Koran’s message to feed the hungry.”  Seriously!  Mayor, do you even know what that month-long event is all about?  I agree with another who said, “If that is the case then let the Islamic community, the followers of the Koran demonstrate and fulfill their duty by offering meals to their own community.  Let them pay for the meals themselves and demonstrate their belief in their own scriptures and their commitment to them.”  One has to wonder if the Mayor is going to use some of the $7.8 billion Congress is sending to pay for those meals.  NYC, are you that docile to allow that?

We have learned from unredacted and unclassified documents of the depth of corruption in the Deep State and the FBI.  Cardinal Richelieu, the French Minister of State under Louis XIII in the early 1600s made an astounding statement.  He said, “If you give me six sentences written by the most innocent of men, I will find something in them with which to hang him.”  Wow!  Stalin’s director of the NKVD Soviet secret police, Lavrentiy Beria, said, “Show me the man and I’ll find the crime.”  That seems to be the modus operandi of the Deep State, the FBI, and the Democratic Party in America today. 

It has come to light that General Flynn did not lie to the FBI.  He knew his conversation with the Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak was recorded so who in their right mind would lie about that?  Even the FBI agents interviewing him said, “Hey, this guy is telling the truth.  How could you possibly prosecute a guy for lying when the only witnesses say he didn’t lie?”  But Mueller’s team prosecuted anyway and used whatever means they were able to inflict to get him to cop a plea.  It was a gross miscarriage of justice, but those guilty of that are still walking free and protected by the Democrats, media, etc.

We see the double standard of handling the sexual allegations against Joe Biden compared to Brett Kavanaugh.  We also know from the notes of FBI agents that the plot against Trump through General Flynn was to entrap him in making a confession or forcing him to lie.  One agent wrote: “What’s our goal?  Truth/admission or get him to lie, so we can prosecute him or get him fired?”  They did not tell him beforehand that he was under investigation. 

The broader investigation of the Trump campaign began under Barack Obama’s watch and Joe Biden knew about it because there is documented evidence that he participated in one of the key meetings.  Imagine that!  Mr., I know nothing, knew something.  According to a memorandum by former National Security Advisor Susan Rice, later confirmed by James Comey, Joe Biden was present at a January 5, 2017 meeting where Barack Obama gave instructions to Comey about how to brief President-elect Donald Trump about Russia.  The meeting included Obama, Biden, Rice, Comey, and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates. 

We have watched things like Fast and Furious, Benghazi, the home server illegally used by then-Secretary of State Clinton. We have seen the Burisma scandal, the quid pro quo of Joe with Ukraine, and the China involvement of the Biden’s, as well as the Uranium deal with the Russians and nothing, has happened.  We have watched the illegal activities of Adam Schiff, and the incredible abuse of power by Congress and nothing has happened.  We have watched Democrat after Democrat receive and play their get out of jail free cards repeatedly.  We have seen no serious indictments of those on the Left.

Therefore, to suggest that Michelle Obama knows there is too much dirt to overcome to enter the race is not a theory I believe.  She and they know that they are a protected class and will remain so, UNLESS we reelect Donald Trump, keep the Senate and take back the House of Representatives.  If the Democrats win in November, keep the House, reclaim the Senate, and take the White House, the Supreme Court will be immediately expanded and packed.  The attack on our freedom and liberty will make what has happened during the COVID-19 pandemic pale in comparison.  America this is your warning!

God bless you and God bless America!

THE RULES OF THE RULING CLASS…


“America will never succumb to tyranny and servitude.”  I declared that over twenty years ago and am now wondering if I will be forced to eat my words and recant.  I truly believed that the independence and determination of the American spirit that was present in 1776 and in the world conflicts we have faced, as well as after 9/11 would prevail and we would resist internal and external tyranny to the death.  Was I wrong?

It is reported that Nikita Khrushchev said, “We will take America without ever firing a shot. We do not have to invade the U.S.  We will destroy you from within…”  That reportedly was declared in 1956.  I heard it in the late ’50s and into the ’60s and it was asserted to be true by some who should know, at the time.  Some have suggested it is a myth and he never said it but might have said things that have been misconstrued.  However, I am convinced it has been a real objective by the members of the Fabian Socialists and the old USSR as well as other empires that desire our demise.

Khrushchev reportedly said, “We can’t expect the American people to jump from capitalism to communism, but we can assist their elected leaders in giving them small doses of socialism until they awaken one day to find that they have communism.”  If he did or did not, the idea is valid and is in play in today’s America.  We have been fed a steady diet of tidbits of Socialism over the past 50 years or more and it has begun to bear fruit.  The past two presidential primaries should reveal that clearly.  Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist, has a very broad appeal as millions want his brand of ‘freebies’ most without realizing the inherent dangers and the abject loss of liberty and freedom accompanying that pathway.

If one could cripple or take over the media, they could effectively propagandize the information and shape opinion favorable toward Socialism.  That method is not new but is readily apparent in today’s media in America.  Six companies own 90% of the American media.  If the powers desiring globalism, communism, socialism, and totalitarianism could control those outlets they could, over time, destroy us. Guess what, They Do!

If the news presented is consistently filled with falsehoods, slanted to present certain people and events negatively and others positively, the dripping on the rock eventually bores a hole and succeeds.  Joseph Goebbels’ declaration is fully evident in today’s media.  He said, “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic, and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

The plunge into Socialism, Communism, Tyranny, and Dictatorship could never happen overnight in America.  The constant drip of droplets of water on the rock of our freedom has eroded much of the understanding of the inherent dangers of those systems.  Many of our college-educated today were taught that all corporations and capitalism are evil, and they impose immoral misery on the working class.  They were taught that America was built using evil means and by evil men.  The theory of equality and equal sharing appeals until one realizes that some share but contribute nothing and others are forced to produce to provide for those who contribute nothing. 

I watched a demonstration of this reality in a History Class in College.  The professor was had immigrated from a communist country, earned his American citizenship as well as his doctorate in history.  Some in the class, back in the mid-70s, thought Socialism was superior and fairer than Capitalism and Republicanism.  The professor allowed the debate for several weeks and informed the class we would grade using the Socialist system.  Everyone would share and share-alike. 

            Those in favor of Socialism applauded and insisted that as a result, everyone would finally see the superiority of it over Capitalism.  He gave a mid-term exam and after grading the papers using the old style, he passed out the results.  The grades ranged from A to F as would be expected.  Then, he said, “Disregard those grades we will take the average of all grades and everyone will get the same grade.”  Those of us who received higher grades protested and those failing thought it was a great idea.  Everybody received a C for that test. 

The next test came in a few weeks and he did the same thing, with the same response.  Some of those who had been advocating Socialism were also good students and wanted their superior grades.  They were appalled that a growing number of the class had stopped participating or studying and failed the test expecting to receive the benefit of those who put in the effort.  It was an awakening many of them never expected and when the light came on for those who cared, the protest reached crescendo loud enough the professor reverted to the old system of getting the grade you earned for the final and that was our grade for the course.

Socialism has been infused into the American economy for decades and the rise in ability and willingness of politicians to ‘buy votes’ through ‘handouts’ has increased.  The manipulation by the media of the information presented, the demand for political correctness is producing deadly fruit.  We have a snowflake generation that demands safe spaces, expects to be shielded from any views contradictory to what they have been told via their indoctrination.  The intolerance of those demanding tolerance has brought us to the brink of destruction and war.

Over the past three years, we have witnessed the next step in the manipulation of information. We have witnessed the falsification of events and the presentation of a faux truth and reality by the Left.  I think Joe Biden’s Des Moines fairground campaign statement is telling.  He said, “we choose truth over facts.”  Truth is truth everywhere and every time.  Facts are stubborn things and validate truth.  If you pursue, Your Truth but not The Truth you will succumb to error.  The Bible says, “You shall know the Truth and the Truth shall make you Free.”  (John 8:32)

America, the Ruling Class of Political Rulers do not have our best interest at heart.  They have their own interest, pursue their own truth, and seek to solidify their position and power.  We are tools to enable them to achieve their objective.  If we suffer, that is inconsequential.  If they can make us dependent on them for our sustenance, they know many will become docile followers of the government edict.  Some believe that the dictator is benevolent and cares.  They have believed a lie and it is damning and damaging.  The result will be servitude to tyranny. 

God help us to wake up and shake off the shackles they seek to impose on us.  Give us liberty or you will give us death, if not literal, economically, and socially.  I say NO to the Liberal Leftist Socialist Marxists and YES to America and Freedom!

God bless you and God bless America!

CONSERVATIVE, CONSTITUTIONALIST, ORIGINALIST, and CHRISTIAN…


What is that animal?  Is there such a creature in existence?  Am I one?  Are you one?  Those are all valid questions and I’m sure that some will insist you cannot be a Christian and the other three.  I am equally convinced that others will argue that embracing the other three is the only way you can be a Christian.  Some will find what I am advocating justification to disassociate from me and it will resonate with others. In today’s political climate it is difficult to maintain your ideological views if you consider yourself a Conservative Constitutionalist Originalist Christian.  It is not always black and white or yes/no process.  There are times each of those provides a measure of conflict for the others depending on the situation. 

Thus, I am challenged with the task of articulating why I consider myself a Conservative who is a believer in the Constitution, an Originalist, and a Christian.  I am first and foremost a Christian, the other three ideological positions are filtered through my Christian beliefs.  I have been challenged by some who believe they are what I profess to be and insist that those descriptors cannot be applied to me because I voted for or will vote for President Donald Trump.  I adamantly disagree, but we all have our points of view and from those views, we filter all we say, do, and believe. 

Before, I address the Christian dynamics of my position let me take these one at a time divide them into four divisions and look at them individually and then collectively.  I do not anticipate that my attempt to articulate my position will dramatically impact others, but hopefully, it will provide food for thought.  Hopefully, it will reveal the need to embrace the need to allow everyone to formulate their own views and express them without fearing a personal attack.  We can and should be able to disagree without deeming those dissenting from our views as mortal enemies.

I view myself as a Conservative in almost everything.  I don’t like the common definition of conservatism but offer it and then my definition of what I view a conservative to be.  The Dictionary defines conservatism as: “the commitment to traditional values and ideas with opposition to change or innovation.”  I find another definition more palatable, “Conservatism is a political and social philosophy promoting traditional social institutions in the context of culture and civilization. … Conservatives seek to preserve a range of institutions such as religion, parliamentary government, and property rights, with the aim of emphasizing social stability and continuity.”  Conservatism is not opposed to change but does oppose change for change’s sake and change that moves us away from our moral moorings and constitutional foundation.

I am a fiscal conservative and find that both parties have abandoned the view of limited spending, reducing the deficit, and reducing the size and scope of the federal government.  Big Government is anathema to the views of the Founding Fathers as revealed in their wording of our Constitution.  I would argue that it is difficult, if not impossible to be a liberal (as is reflected today) and believe in the Constitution. 

The Founding Fathers provided the clear wording of the Constitution to prevent the federal government from becoming the behemoth it has become.  They ardently desired that “we the people” be the owners and managers of the government.  They desired that the individual states would maintain a high level of autonomy and that both ‘States Rights’ and ‘Individual Rights’ would be religiously defended and protected.  That is not what we see today and those following the brand of liberal political ideology of today want the opposite.  One definition of constitutionalism is, “a compound of ideas, attitudes, and patterns of behavior elaborating the principle that the authority of government derives from and is limited by a body of fundamental law”.

The word ‘constitution’ implies that we embrace a set of rules or norms which structure and define the limits of government power and authority.  Former President Barack Obama lamented that the American Constitution was ‘too restrictive’ and was a document of ‘negative liberties.’  He explained that he was referring to its power to prevent the federal government and him from doing whatever they wanted.  Thank God, he at least acknowledged it, albeit he and most of the politicians ignore its restraints.  The Tenth Amendment was not a space filler, it was intended to have teeth and preserve the autonomy of the several states and thereby ‘we the people.’

I believe in the Constitution and not only do I believe it must be the Law of the Land, I believe it must be interpreted in light of the Original Intent of the Founders.  That would make me an Originalist.  Discerning the ‘original intent’ is not always easy to determine, but possible.  Some things are clearly defined in the Constitution and those things that are absent should always be left to the individual states to decide.  Politicians have damaged our Constitution and the Original Intent dramatically with laws, edicts, regulations, restrictions, and even amendments designed to empower the FED not protect the people and the Republic.  That is an indefensible position for a Constitutional Originalist.

I have been challenged by some who claim to be devotees to the Constitution and believers in Originalism but are willing to vote for the Democrats over Trump because of personal animus toward him.  They claim that he is so vile and has done such damage to the Republic and the Constitution he must be ousted and destroyed. They argue, usually with no data or facts.  Hate is a powerful thing, but it is sometimes devoid of reason and requires the hater to ignore facts and truth. 

I ask, “How can a Conservative, Constitutional Originalist vote for a candidate or party that seeks to shred the Constitution?”  The idea that the federal government has the power to decide our 1st Amendment Rights, the extent of our Religious Freedom, and our right to personal property or self-defense is anathema to the Constitution and the Original Intent of the Founders.  One of the reasons we rebelled against the British Crown in 1776 was the repressiveness of the King’s edicts and taxation without representation.  Today, the followers of today’s brand of toxic liberalism are repressive and seek to tax and spend us into oblivion.  How as a Conservative, follower of the Constitution, and believer in the Original Intent vote for them?  I Cannot!

Finally, I am a Christian who believes in the Constitution and the interpretation of that document through the lens of Original Intent and am a Conservative.  That places me in a position where I must filter everything I think, say, and do through my grid of faith and the Bible.  I care for the poor and at the same time expect people to provide for themselves wherever and whenever possible.  I want everyone to have access to adequate healthcare but do not believe that universal healthcare provides that.  I want everyone to be able to keep what they have earned or inherited.  It is theirs and they are free to do with it what they please. 

As a Christian, when it comes to politics, I view all matters that directly impact my faith or that are directly impacted by my faith and decide upon the candidate or party I can and will support.  I believe in Life and therefore am opposed to abortion, especially abortion on demand.  I believe that life begins in the womb and that before conception God knew and planned the design of that life. You may disagree, but that is my faith view.  Therefore, I cannot and will not vote for a candidate that advocates abortion and especially abortion on demand. 

I believe in Family and that marriage is to be between one man and one woman, not people of the same sex.  I base that on the writings of both the Old and New Testaments.  I believe there are two genders, male and female not hundreds.  You may disagree and if so, you will have to take that up with God.  I shudder to think of standing before God and telling Him that I had a sex change operation because He blew it when he created me.  I believe in loving everyone and being as tolerant as possible.  However, when it comes to the person or persons, I want in charge of running the government I want the sovereignty of America preserved and protected, traditional moral values upheld, the lives of the innocent protected, and our inalienable rights recognized and honored.

I consider myself a Conservative Constitutional Originalist Christian and my view of what has transpired over the past 12 to 20 years in our government is troubling.  The past 3 ½ has caused me to believe that Trump became president to give America a chance to return to our Constitutional principles and preserve our freedoms and liberties including our religious liberty and freedom.  He is no saint and has kinks in his armor like all of us, but compared to what we have had, I view him more compatible with my views than the other offerings. 

My long rant may resonate with you or irritate you, but it is my view and I approve this message.  If you find it justification to disassociate with me, I can accept that.  If you find it cause to join the cause I fight for and defend Faith, Family, and Freedom I welcome you.

God bless you and God bless America!
