THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE OF LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE SOCILAIST POLITICS….


Image

            I should not be surprised at anything in politics anymore but I still am surprised in the lack of attention and recognition by the masses regarding the shenanigans of politics and politicians.  I watched a video clip the other day of Hollywood Types being asked about Obama and Robert De Niro was in tears defending Obama, and some others were making statements to the interviewer like, “We both agree that Benghazi is bunk right?”  The interviewer did not agree and when he pressed the actor as to who was to blame and the response was, “The Republicans cutting funding.”  I laughed and cried at the same time because the Benghazi debacle that was either total incompetence or blatant treason or both had nothing to do with any funding cuts but with inappropriate or the lack of action on the part of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.  Then to make matters worse they lied about what transpired and are still doing so yet the public or the loyal followers DO NOT HOLD THEM ACCOUNTABLE!   How is that possible?  It has to be willing ignorance out of political bias!

            It seems that no matter how much scientific data is presented debunking Global Warming the liberal followers hold to it as though it were Divine Gospel and refuse to consider the facts.  When it comes to the Affordable Care Act aka Obama-care even though the vast majority do not like it and do not want it millions refuse to reject the liberals who promote it, crammed it down our throats, and loyally cling to it.  How is that possible?  It can only be that they are living in an Alternate Universe of political ideology and facts and truth are unimportant only their ideology and the candidates who support that ideology.  I find that disturbing if not surprising.  I truly thought the American people had more grit, sand, and intelligence than that but am changing my views on that front.

            When I hear Senator Chuck Schumer declare that the ‘Tea Party’ is the most dangerous entity facing America today and openly encouraging the IRS to put them even more closely under a microscope to target them, I wonder how anyone could possibly believe that right and okay.  Sadly, some in the Republican Establishment do as well.  Senator Schumer’s basis was that the Tea Party is anti-big government and a nanny state and the government needs to be defended because in his liberal view it is not big enough, intrusive enough, or enslaving enough.  The political elite on both sides of the aisle view the government gravy train differently than the average citizen.  They want to make us believe that they truly care about us and are acting in our best interest when what they are really doing is solidifying their position and power while building their financial and political fortunes.  It is about control, money, and power not about the people!  I don’t care which side of the aisle the professional politician stands they want to protect their place and position no matter what it costs America or Americans.  How is it possible that people do not see that?  It has to be that millions are living in the Alternate Universe of Liberal Progressive Socialist Political Views.  It has to be willing ignorance. 

Image 

            Sadly, we were warned that when people find out they can vote themselves money the Republic is finished and we have not listened.  We are seeing the demise of what I believe to be the Greatest Nation in the modern world.  I will not say the greatest in history but in the modern world it has been.  Unfortunately, the path we have been on for decades with the hundred year plan of the Fabian Socialist and others, has led us to the place where someone like Barack Obama and the Soros crowd could step in and drive the final nail in the coffin of a Republican Democracy.  I wish I could say something that was more encouraging but I see the light at the end of the tunnel and hear the whistle of the train engine behind it.  I see the end coming UNLESS we IMMEDIATELY stop the madness.  How do we do that?  I’m not sure we can but if we do not band together in 2014 and 2016 the proverbial ‘fat lady’ will be singing and as Dandy Don Meredith used to sing on Monday Night Football – “Turn out the Lights the Party Is Over.”

Image

            The only question is what are we going to do?  Will we just take it and watch our money stolen, our economy completely destroyed, the free market collapsed, and our freedom and liberty stolen from us or will we STAND UP and say NO!

            May God bless you and may God bless America!

THE COMING COLLAPSE….


Image

            Okay, I guess you can now officially list me among those who believe that the U.S. dollar is going to collapse and the economy is going to tank into oblivion leaving millions in America and around the world in financial ruin.  I do not believe it is ‘if’ but ‘when’ this transpires.  On our present course in the United States with the insatiable appetite for spending, deficit, and debt a collapse is imminent and guaranteed.  Our path is unsustainable by the estimation of virtually all economic forecasters and seems to be a planned destruction. 

            I do not know how anyone can assume that the United States government can continue its unbridled spending, the Federal Reserve can continue printing money making the currency more and more worthless, and ‘entitlement programs’ and ‘wasteful spending’ continue without dire results.  Those feeding at the government trough of entitlements seem to believe that ‘Golden Goose’ of the Nanny State Federal Government has an endless supply of money and that printing money at an insane rate is not a problem.  IT IS MORE THAN A PROBLEM.  It is a disaster waiting to happen.  It is just a matter of time.

 Image

            I’ve had some tell me that this will not happen because the ‘power brokers’ of the world will not allow it to happen because they would be hurt.  If you truly believe they have not ‘hedged’ their bets you are living in Wonderland and should see the Tin Man any moment now.  I believe that the ‘money people’ of the world will make money if the U.S. dollar remains or if it goes by the wayside.  I believe that it is just a matter of when it becomes economically, politically, nationally, and internationally profitable to them.  We are virtually, if not literally, owned by other countries, the money and power brokers of the world.  If they deem it in the interest of their power, profit, and position to destroy the U.S. dollar it is gone.  We have reached or are dangerously close to the point of no return it would seem and if we do not reign in this spending and debt train within a very short time we will see what Willard Cantelon a preacher wrote about decades ago.  He wrote a book called ‘The Day The Dollar Dies’ and many believed it theoretically but not practically.  That is the same way that many believe the prophecies of the Bible.  It will happen just not to them or in their lifetime thus no real change in practices or lifestyles.  Well some generation will see the fulfillment of the prophecies and the collapse of the World Economy the only question is which generation.

 Image

            I read a report of one economist that said the talk of ‘hyperinflation’ regarding the British pound and the U.S. dollar should be viewed not if it happens but in hindsight that it has already happened.  He cited that if you bought a house for $20,000 in 1913 using U.S. dollars you would need $1 Million in today’s dollars.  If that is accurate or even remotely accurate we are looking at a devaluation rate of 98.5 to 99.5% of the British pound and the U.S. dollar and if we are already there where do we go to salvage either?  The Federal Government has been making plans to take your money including your retirement accounts and redistribute it to themselves not struggling people.  The government shutdown or slowdown was not about people but about power.  If the government does not continue to operate at its rate then the lobbyist, consultants, special interest will not get what they want and the legislators will not continue to become more and more powerful and rich personally.  It was never about us it was about them!  There would be ample funds to help the truly needy and do the government’s true constitutional duties if it were not for the incredible excess and waste that we have today in government. 

             If in your personal finances each month you charge much more than you bring in you will find that in a short time you are barely and basically just paying the interest on your debt.  If that continues to the point that the interest is more than you bring in you have a complete economic collapse and are destroyed financially.  The Federal Government is operating that way so what is different?  NOTHING! 

             Based on what I see politically, nationally, internationally, and biblically I fully believe a CRASH of epic proportions is just around the corner.  I fear for what I see happening if and when that happens.  The headlines will read:  “Panic in the Streets”, “Rioting and Looting Rampant”, “Chaos and Anarchy in America”, and many other descriptive headlines.  Hunger and fear will drive people to looting, murder, and viciousness that will be beyond anything most of us can fathom.  I believe that we are in more danger economically in America than through a direct military type attack and we are very much in danger of that due to our porous borders, incredibly inept foreign policy, and attention to terrorism. 

 Image

            My message is not one that will cheer you up but I tell you now that if you can take steps to ‘hedge your bet’ financially against the decreasing and dying dollar.  Even more importantly I urge everyone to look to God because we are going to see a time, and I believe soon, where unless God sustains us we perish individually and collectively.  I believe this time will be one of the greatest times of revival and trouble that the world has ever seen. I want to be on God’s side when it comes and at the same time I recall the words of the Bible spoken by the Lord, “Be wise as serpents and harmless as doves.”  We must do what we know to do and yet we must become so completely reliant on GOD that we live without fear!

             This government has demonstrated its lack of trustworthiness and I do not just mean the Obama administration.  We have as very small window of opportunity and chance hopefully and we MUST reclaim our nation! 

             God bless you and God bless America!

THE SMOKE AND MIRRORS STATISTICS…..


Image

 

            This is not a new revelation but this Administration is guilty of using what I would call “Smoke & Mirrors Reporting” of the economy, employment, and unemployment.  It is fictional at best and an outright lie at worst!  As I read the jobs report for December 2013 I noticed that the reported unemployment rate fell from 7% to 6.7%.  On the surface that sounds good but when you examine the numbers you scratch your head and ask – HOW?

             74,000 jobs were added in December a significant slowdown of reported jobs increases over the past few months and is the smallest number since January 2011 so how did the unemployment rate drop?  That is easy one to answer – 347,000 dropped out of the labor force completely and are no longer looking for work so they do not count anymore!  Convenient isn’t it?  This is so fictional and so smoke and mirrors that is should have everyone including the lame stream media up in arms over the fictionality but they aren’t.  In fact, few are even mentioning it anymore as this has become so the norm it is now accepted and that is tragic.  A lie is being sold to the public and millions believe it that we are RECOVERING and people are going back to work in droves.  If that is the case then why the need for extending ‘unemployment benefits’ another year?  

 Image

            The average workweek also fell from 34.5 hours to 34.4 and the underemployment rate including part-timers who want full-time work and those who no longer are looking, and the unemployed is reported as being 13.1%.  That is a much more realistic number than the fictional 6.7% unemployment.  I would suggest that 13.1% does not scratch the surface of the real number if everyone who is employable and those underemployed were calculated but alas that would be the real world not the world of fictional politics.

            There was even a drop in the construction industry of approximately 16,000 jobs so I must ask even with the winter weather does that sound like a ‘boom’?  We did see that there were 40,000 temporary jobs added but does that suggest that the jobs market is coming back?  Not really, it suggests that employers are utilizing this vehicle as a means to take care of a situation or need and allows them to avoid the costs of benefits for those employees and an easy means of releasing them without additional costs.  It sounds like a stagnant economy and jobs market to me, but then I try to live in the real world not the fictional one that the President and most politicians seem to live in.

Image 

            I have to ask, “If the unemployment rate is the best it has been since 2008 why do we need to keep extending unemployment benefits that we cannot afford and do not create jobs?”  I saw that someone stated on Facebook that if Obama had not acted in five years we would be screaming about his inaction.  I thought ‘You are sure right.  We would be shouting Hallelujah!  The economy would be coming back or be back.  The incessant assault on the private sector, our civil and constitutional liberties would not be so prevalent.  We would be moving toward a smaller and more limited government if he had not done what he has done.’  So in that light the person that touted how Socialism is working in Germany and Denmark and other parts of the world can believe that if they choose but reality and history informs us that Socialism and Communism has not, does not, and will not work.  It works on paper not in reality!

             I don’t know about you but I’m tired of the exhausting parade of ‘smoke and mirror’ statistics and reports that keep coming.  Let’s stop playing games with numbers and face the fact that America is in trouble, deeply in debt, and in desperate need of putting the federal government on a fiscal diet and reducing its size.  We need a constitutional revival in this land and it can only come as WE THE PEOPLE exert our influence, make our voices heard, and fire the politicians who ignore us.

             God bless you and God bless America!

THERE IS A METHOD TO THEIR MADNESS….


 

Image

            Dr. Larry Arnn, President of Hillsdale College published an article in the Imprimis, December 2013, Volume 42, Number 12 entitled, “A Rebirth of Liberty and Learning” in which he describes the ‘Two Ways of Education and Two Ways of Governing.’  Both provide some incredibly timely and salient points that all Americans should read and allow to sink in for they describe why we are where we are and the dangers of being there.

             I want to focus on the ‘governing’ portion although the education portion gave me much to think about, something in the ‘governing’ part caused me to think about ‘what’ and ‘why’ politicians are doing what they are doing and how it is affecting America, Americans, and our Constitution.  There is truly a ‘method to their madness’ and it is so heinous that words are inadequate to describe.  What they are doing and why they are doing it, in my view, should cause every American who cares about Liberty & Freedom to immediately commit themselves to becoming involved in restoring our republic.  It will not, but should!

 Image

            Dr. Arnn so eloquently stated the contrast between the old constitutional way of governing and the new progressive, statist, liberal, oligarchical, and politically elite way.  One of the things he highlighted was how simple the laws used to be.  Bear in mind that a Law passed by Congress and signed into law by the President are laws that we are to be ‘governed’ by.  How can we obey or operate under laws that we do not understand and those charged with enforcing them cannot understand?  That is part of their objective!  They keep us in the dark and confused and they can manipulate the law and we the people according to their agenda, objective, and political ideology.  Ignorance is not bliss it is ignorance!

             When you consider that the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, the Northwest Ordinance, and the Constitution of the United States of America are all under 4,500 words in length compared to the Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare which without the rules, regulations, etc. weighs in at 363,086 words.  This law, as Dr. Arnn states, is not a law but something much more sinister and the public, congress, the IRS, the bureaucrats, the insurance industry or the health care providers understand it.  HOW CAN YOU OPERATE UNDER IT?

Image

            James Madison who is frequently identified as the ‘Father of the U.S. Constitution’ suggested in his Federalist Papers that the Constitution receives its authority from the principles of the Declaration of Independence.  That was the common view of his day and should be in ours but it is not in the minds of the Progressives, Liberals, Statist, and Political Elite. 

 “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among those are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their powers from the consent of the governed…  That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of those ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government…”

 Image

            When you contrast that with the belief of the current President of the United States of America Barack H. Obama as revealed in his book of 2006, “The Audacity of Hope” it is startling.

“Implicit in [the Constitution’s] structure, in the very idea of ordered liberty, was a rejection of absolute truth, the infallibility of any idea or ideology or theology or ‘ism’, any tyrannical consistency that might lock future generations into a single, unalterable course…”

            I stand with Dr. Arnn in asking, “How did Barack Obama come to believe something so foreign to America’s heritage as that in the name of liberty we must reject absolute truths, which essentially include rejecting those truths included in the Declaration of Independence?”

Image 

            Their purpose is to ‘keep us in the dark’ so they can ‘manipulate’ us.  If the public becomes informed and is cognizant of what is really happening, understands the laws, rules, and regulations that are so voluminous from Washington THEY LOSE THEIR CONTROL.  They must keep us ‘ignorant’ or “uniformed” in order to practice their deception and move us closer and closer to a Tyrannical Despotic Government in which we are literally pawns and serfs of the government and subjected to the whims, whishes, and desires of the political elite or as they view themselves THE TRUE RULING CLASS and RIGHTFUL OVERSEERS.  I do not view them that way and neither should you.  The Constitutional form of Government that we have derives the authority to govern from those being governed and we have dramatically shifted from that to a government that does not listen and is not responsive to WE THE PEOPLE. 

             We MUST change that or we will soon have a republic in name only if we have that!   May God bless you and may God bless America!
