Blog Post 2 - Disciples

I have seen the “How To Create A Social State” attributed to Saul Alinsky and cannot find it anywhere in his writings.  I will not absolutely declare it was not derived from his teachings but when I try to verify it I am unable so I will refrain from using it.

However, if one reads the “Twelve Rules For Radicals” you will find much that would lend itself to the very plan listed in the supposed Eight Rules which include control of Healthcare, Income, Debt, Guns, Welfare, Education, Religion and the creation of Class Warfare.  All which the left are using proficiently in modern times.  I have no doubt they learned and developed this strategy largely from Alinsky’s teachings but will declare that this goes far deeper in history and are ideas belched from the pit of hell.

Blog Post 2 - Lenin

The ideas of Alinsky could rightly be viewed as simplifications of those of Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin who is reported to have declared that his disciples were “useful idiots”.  I have read that the term was actually used by Lenin to describe Westerners duped into saying good things about bad regimes.  I can believe it was the mentality of Lenin and Stalin but whether he said it or not it is still applicable today.  Lenin and Stalin reportedly used the term “polyezniy idiot” or “useful idiot” to describe sympathizers in the West who blindly supported Communist leaders.

Lenin reportedly said, “The goal of socialism is communism.  Give me just one generation of youth, and I will transform the whole world.”  Winston Churchill declared, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”  The idea is that equality trumps all in socialism.  All, that is, except the corrupt politicians in charge!  They exempt themselves from the laws they create to control.

Among the interesting items to be found in Alinsky’s writings is this statement:  As an organizer, I start where the world is, as it is, not as I would like it to be. That we accept the world as and it does not in any sense weaken our desire to change it into what we believe it should be — it is necessary to begin where the world is if we are going to change it to what we think it should be. — P. xix.   That would explain Obama’s press to create the Utopian World living within his mind.  Alinsky also said something that cause me to come to a screeching halt and ponder today’s climate and the rationale behind the push for “gun control” by the left.  He said, “Power comes out of the barrel of a gun!” is an absurd rallying cry when the other side has all the guns.”  Xxi.

Blog Post 2 - Reformation

His definition of Reformation should cause alarm bells to go off in our sense of liberty and morality.  “A reformation means that masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values.  They don’t know what will work but they know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating, and hopeless.  They won’t act for change, but won’t strongly oppose those who do.  The time then is ripe for revolution.”  Xxii. His prescription for young radicals was:  “…the answer I gave the young radicals seemed to me the only realistic one:  “Do one of three things.  One, go find a wailing wall and feel sorry for yourselves. Two, go psycho and start bombing — but this only swings: people to the right.  Three, learn a lesson. Go home, organize, build power and at the next convention, you be the delegates.” — xxiii

Blog Post 2 - Satan and Alinsky

A key philosophy of Alinsky and demonstrated by both Obama and Hillary is: “One’s concern with ethics of means and ends varies inversely with one’s personal interest in the issue.”  He declared, “The fifth rule of the ethics and ends is that concern with ethics increases with the number of means available and vice versa.  To the man of action the first criterion in determining which means to employ is to assess what means are available.  Reviewing and selecting available means is done on a straight utilitarian basis – WILL IT WORK?  Moral questions may enter when one chooses among equally effective alternate means. “- P.32.

 We have witnessed years of demonstrated discipleship to the Alinsky Model by the left and especially Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.  They truly believe the “end justifies the means” and lives only have value if they advance the ideological agenda desired.  We saw that in Benghazi and see it regularly.

Knowing they are disciples of Saul Alinsky should be enough to cause hesitation and rejection of them and their agendas but it has not been heretofore.  Will it be in 2016?  I am waiting for that answer.  The connections to Alinsky, the adoption of Fabian Socialist ideas and agendas, the associations with people like Domestic Terrorist Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn to name a couple should Americans to realize that the left does not have America’s best interest at heart but desire to “fundamentally transform” this nation into something more aligned with Communist Despotism.  The fairy tale world of Socialism where everyone is equal and all share is a theory that is only workable on paper and theory not in reality.

God help us if we allow someone of Hillary Clinton’s mentality, ideology and ilk occupy the White House as a result of the Elections of 2016.  May God cause us to awaken out of our slumber, shake ourselves, rise up, step up, speak up and engage ourselves in preserving the Republic our Founders Established and God’s divine providence allowed!

God bless you and God bless America!

HEY HILLARY – What Is Broken That You Want To Fix?

Blog Post 3 - Four More Years

I don’t know about anyone else but I find it almost laughable that Hillary Clinton is trying to tap dance through Obama’s policies acknowledging that there are things that are not working without saying the past seven years has not worked.  Bernie Sanders, to his credit, is not saying he does not believe things are working simply they are not going far enough or fast enough to suit his Socialist mentality.  He thinks more spending, more government regulations, more and Bigger Government throwing money around like it grew on trees is a good thing.

I thought Chris Matthews asking Hillary to explain the difference between a Socialist and a Democrat was priceless but not as priceless as her inability to answer the question.  He tried to give her an out and she finally said, “I don’t know what one is but I’m not one.  I’m a progressive Democrat who likes to get things done and work together on solutions.”  Seriously?  You don’t know what a Socialist is but you are not one.  How do you know?  Also, claiming you want to get things done and work with people is so generic it deserves no consideration as a viable answer to any question.  Hillary said, “We need to get the Economy going.”  Really?  If the policies of the past seven years are working and good why do we need to fix the economy?  Hey, Ms. Clinton, you are a liberal Democrat, right?  Why not run saying, “Elect me and you get four more years of the same policies, ideology and agenda you have had for seven years.” 

Blog Post 3 - Hillary

Why isn’t she doing that?  Because she and her handlers pay attention to which way the wind is blowing and a significant percentage of Americans believe we are headed in the WRONG DIRECTION and that means they do not believe the policies are or have worked.  Therefore, without telling us how she would get the economy going, she says we need to.  The sheep of the left drink that in and say, “Hillary is right.”  Of course, no thought is given to how the past seven years have fixed nothing but exasperated much.

Barack Obama ran declaring he would be the Great Uniter and the nations who have heretofore hated us will once again respect and love us.  He went on his apology tour throughout the Arab world apologizing for the evil sinful America of the past and proclaimed that a new day had dawned, the sun was shining and the birds chirping because He would bring America down to size and show a nice side to the bully nation. (His view not mine).  Sadly, we are less respected today than we have been in my lifetime.  Those who once feared our superior might no longer consider us anything but a paper tiger because of his unilateral reduction in our military strength.  He has significantly reduced our nuclear arsenal claiming that if we did that the other nations would know we were not a threat and they would either disarm or cease seeking nuclear weapons.  Imagine that!  How has that worked out?  Russia and China have disarmed, right?  North Korea has ceased production on nuclear weapons, right?  Of course, Iran would never seek to have a nuclear weapon and we can trust them so much we let them police and inspect themselves.  Well, that is NOT EXACTLY WHAT HAPPENED!   Please do not forget the recent action by the Iranians with regard to our Navy boats and  how this wonderful ally responded.  Friends?  Trustworthy?  Wanting to work together?  HARDLY!  America is in greater danger today militarily than ever.  I say that as one who is a combat veteran and greatly respects our military but the so-called Commander in Chief has hamstrung much of our military and that is not just bad or dangerous it is diabolical.

Blog Post 3 - Socialism

Hillary, why is it that you are not touting the ideology and policies of this administration as wonderful and vowing to give us more of the same?  You believe what Mr. Obama believes.  You are a disciple of the same mentality as he so why distance yourself, even slightly?  If what he and the Democrats have offered is so wonderful why not step up and declare FOUR MORE YEARS?

Why?  Because you know his policies are abject failures.  However, if you were elected we would not only get FOUR MORE YEARS but our borders would be completely eradicated, there would be far more than 50% of America on government entitlements, the assault on our 2nd Amendment Rights would escalate and Government would become larger and more intrusive than under the two terms of Barack H. Obama.

Ms. Clinton, we have a broken America or one that is dangerously close to being broken beyond repair.  You have lied about Benghazi, your incredibly dangerous use of private email servers and repeatedly avowed to do even more than Mr. Obama in pushing America to the left.  I can only hope that the FBI forces the DOJ to do the right thing and hold you accountable.  It is clear that the Republicans in Congress have no willingness or stomach for that fight.  I can only hope the American people recognize the dangers and failures of FOUR MORE YEARS breaking the Greatest Nation on the planet and reject you and those who follow your ideological agenda.

God bless you and God bless America.  I stand firmly for FAITH, FAMILY, and FREEDOM!




BLOG Post 4 - What

Over the past seven years, America has been on a path leading away from individual liberty, personal rights, and Constitutional Liberty.  I know, some will castigate me for that statement saying, “You are just a mean-spirited Republican.”  Today, I find it difficult to identify with the GOP as led by the Karl Rove’s and certainly not the Democrats led by Mr. Obama, the Clinton’s or the hierarchy of the parties.  I don’t particularly like the identifier of “Independent” but prefer “Patriot” and “Constitutionalist” but the two major parties from which we will select the next president are Democrat or Republican.

Some of those on the left are showing signs of ditching the Hillary Bandwagon and jumping on the Bernie Sanders Socialist Train.  I do not know if there will be more like Joe Biden who will publicly say supportive things for Bernie and in a backhanded way slam Hillary but if they do then we could see a Bernie Sanders nomination for the Democrat ticket.  What would that mean?  That brings me to the image in my head as I prayed and thought about what is happening in our nation and world today.

Blog Post 4 - First Black

Just seven years ago, America elected Barack Obama and largely because he was black or claimed identity as African-American.  Say what you will, many of the Republicans, Independents and Southern Democrats that pulled the lever for him to show the world they were not racist.  It was not based on his resume for he virtually had no resume.  The black community voted overwhelmingly for him and any attempt to declare that was not based on his race would be futile. If whites or any other group voted in such block numbers for a candidate of their ethnicity the screams of racism would be deafening.  America took what has been called a historic path and elected the “first black president” in history.

I believe that marked a transition that may be more than the lovers of Constitutional Liberty and the Constitutional Republic can overcome.  Now, we are hearing please elect the “first woman president” but what happens if Hillary falters and Bernie Sanders rises to the top and claims the nomination?  How about the historic move to elect the “first self-proclaimed Socialist president”?  You say, that cannot happen but the more I study the situation and sense the direction the wind is blowing in this nation I am not sure.

Blog Post 4 - Angry Americans

We have millions who are angry and they are not all committed to voting for the Republican candidate.  There are some very angry people on both sides of the political aisle and I can envision a scenario in which the Main Stream Media, Academia and millions would say, “Well, we’ve tried everything else let’s try Socialism.”  That would be the final nail in the coffin of the Constitutional Republic the founders gave us and would answer the question or response of Benjamin Franklin when asked, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?”  Franklin responded, “A republic, madam – if you can keep it.”  That was their concern and has been the concern of many of us who consider ourselves Constitutionalist, Conservative and supporters of a Constitutional Republic.

There are new polls that indicate virtually every Republican can beat Hillary in the General Election but some would be beaten and beaten soundly by Bernie Sanders.  Why?  What is the mood of the populace?  Why would people want or dare to elect an avoided Socialist to the highest office in the land?  The misguided notion of EQUALITY and that somehow life is supposed to be FAIR.  If you have worked hard, risked much and achieved amassing substantial wealth you are deemed to be corrupt and evil and should be forced to share your wealth with those less fortunate or less willing to risk or work.  How far do we take SHARING?  Should everyone in the classroom be given the same grade?  Should everyone make the same salary?  Is the marriage vow no longer valid and we must share our spouses too?  I find that appalling but how far do we take this EQUALITY, FAIRNESS and SHARING ideology?

Blog Post 4 - Wake Up

I am writing this with a heavy heart for I am deeply concerned for my nation.  I am writing, not as a prediction this will happen but a warning that it is not so far-fetched it could not happen.  I am writing hoping to cause some to become stirred and realize that just letting happen what will happen is not an option.  If you do not invest yourself in the process you are ceding the decision to others who may or may not have your best interest at heart.

I am personally unwilling to let others make my life choices!  My drive and commitment remain Faith, Family, and Freedom.   God bless you and God bless America!   REMEMBER NOVEMBER America’s future hangs in the balance.

HEY MR. PRESIDENT – Here Is An Executive Order For You…

Blog Post - Mr. President

BAN EVIL!  That’s what I said because it makes about as much sense as your unilateral assault on the 2nd Amendment as somehow a proper response that might somehow save even one life.  Virtually everyone, including your crowd, admits it will do little or nothing and would have done nothing to prevent the horrific mass shootings.  But, you turned on the tears and are seeking to politicize the issue as you have on many other issues including race relations hoping to achieve your ideological agenda and establish your LEGACY even if you are a Legend ONLY in your mind.

Never mind facts and reality for if by Executive Action/Order you can resolve a problem, how about issuing one that BAN’S EVIL!  That’s right from this day forward Evil is illegal and by taking that action, everyone prone to committing an act of evil will comply because or your edict.  Simple solution, right?  WELLLLLLL…. There is a small problem that is not so small and that is the depravity of the human heart.  You cannot, by legislation or Unconstitutional presidential edict make people civil, moral, sane, rational and tolerant.  Sorry, that is only possible in the Utopian world that you and many of your followers seem to believe exists alongside your herd of Unicorns.

Blog Post - Ban Evil

EVIL and VIOLENCE have been around, for mankind since Cain killed Abel and is not going away UNTIL and UNLESS we enter the time when Jesus completely rules and reigns on earth.  At that time, according to the Bible, men will beat their weapons of war into farming tools and the lion and lamb will live in harmony.  That is not the current condition of the world and is not going to be via nice talk, presidential edicts, UN directives or Congressional acts.  I know that when you were auditioning for the job of President you declared you would end the Unconstitutional actions of George W. Bush, whom you accused of using Executive Actions/Orders to bypass Congress and the will of the people.  My, what a difference an election or two makes isn’t it?  You also said you would be the catalyst to UNITE Washington and the World would once again love and respect us simply because you would tell them how evil we were and then unilaterally take actions showing weakness, not strength.  Your mind or rhetoric avowed the world would follow suite.  How has that worked out?

We have a world filled with evil, diabolical and dangerous people so driven by an ideology or so narcissistic and sadistic they will stop at nothing to achieve their objectives.  That is not solved by a UN Resolution, an Executive Order/Action or even legislation.  If we want to keep America and Americans safe and provide a means whereby we can defend ourselves, our property and those we love we need to face reality.  Sir, if somehow you and the world declared that GUNS WERE ILLEGAL for anyone other than police or military guns would still be in the hands of those desiring to do evil, commit crimes, and terror.  Sir, if somehow you and the world declared that NUCLEAR WEAPONS WERE ILLEGAL there would still be nations and people in possession of those weapons.  A law is for the law abiding and has not affect or impact on those whose heart are filled with evil. 

Blog Post - Enforce the Law

I would suggest that you could do more to curb “gun violence” by strictly enforcing the laws against committing any crime using a gun.  Make the sentences so severe the perpetrator would not see the light of day (freedom) for a very long time, if ever, and I truly believe that would have more an impact than your assault on our Constitutional Rights and Liberties.  But, if your agenda is not curbing gun violence and solving a problem but something more far-reaching and sinister then I understand your interest in this issue.  You have shown no concern for the thousands of UNBORN BABIES slaughtered every day.  You have no stomach to take the fight to ISIS or any terrorist group other than superficial actions through which you can claim action but nothing of significance comes of it.

Mr. President, you are wrong as you have been on virtually every other issue and if you are sincere you are sincerely wrong.  You have missed the truth and reality and totally misunderstood the problem and the root.  Therefore, I plead with you and all who are members of your sheepfold to pause, take a deep breath and face reality.  The problem, the underlying problem is the condition of the human heart and mind, not the weapons or tools used.  A gun like a plow, knife, fork or automobile can be a beneficial tool and is for millions of responsible, law-abiding gun owners.  Focus on enforcing the laws regarding gun violence rather than attempting to destroy the industry and prevent those of us who obey the law from practicing our God-given and Constitutional Right.

God bless each of you and God bless America again.  REMEMBER NOVEMBER!!!


Blog Post - Terrorism

The immediate answer is NO!  But not wanting to offer a blanket statement without deeper examination of the reasons for the question and the basis of my argument that it is not only a reasonable request but a morally mandated one.

The question is a result of a recent report that Rana Elmir, an American Muslim and deputy director of the ACLU of Michigan declared, that she “emphatically” refuses to condemn jihadist terrorist “just because I am Muslim.”  Her argument is she will not condemn terror perpetuated by psychopaths who are misrepresenting her religion.  She drew comparisons to Dylan Storm Roof’s attack on a black church in South Carolina, Planned Parenthood shootings and the slaughter of moviegoers in Colorado or Louisiana.  Her expressed view that were she to condemn the jihadist she would be admitting her own guilt.  I find her argument weak on many fronts and misguided.

The stretch that since she was not asked to comment on the cited incidents of violence by non-Muslims it is somehow inappropriate to ask her to condemn Islamic Jihadism and Terrorism.  When an act of terrorism or senseless violence occurs at the hands of anyone claiming they have a mandate from their god and holy book to do so should elicit the swift and immediate condemnation of all followers of that religion.  If anyone commits an act of terror while professing to be a Christian and claiming that God ordered them to do so I will immediately condemn that act as terrorism and a blatant false interpretation of the Bible.  Christians have united across political ideological lines to condemn senseless violence because the clear teaching of the Bible does not support a caliphate where Christians are commanded to kill, behead, maim and mutilate anyone not converting to Christianity.

Blog Post - Islamic Terrorism

When there is a mass shooting regardless of whether the shooter claims some moral basis for their actions, the left does not ask Christians to condemn the terrorism but the weapon used.  On the other hand when there is an act of Muslim terrorism or jihadism the weapon is never mentioned.  Instead of offering the same condemnation of the weapon and launching an effort to “ban” or “restrict” various firearms there is a concerted attempt to declare that the Islamic terrorist are not Islamic or Muslim but rather misguided individuals.  If someone non-Muslim commits an act of terror there is no mention or consideration of them being misguided but the focus is on the weapon not the individual.  In both cases, I assert it is not the weapon but the heart that is the problem.

In my research of the followers of the Islamic caliphate and perpetrators of jihadism and terrorism they cite the consistent and repeated passages of their book instructing them to do what they do.  The Bible, on the other hand, does not offer the same command but focuses on love, forgiveness and redemption.

Blog Post - Radical Muslim

So I ask once more, “Is it wrong to ask Muslims to condemn Islamic terrorism?”  My answer is that it is not only not wrong but reasonable to ask the so-called moderate Muslims to openly condemn jihad.  The fact that it is rare to find a Muslim willing to condemn Islamic terrorism suggests a need to further examine the so-called religion of peace in its core teachings.  Terrorism should be condemned regardless of its ideological source.

Blog Post - Moderate Muslim

I cannot imagine Christian leaders or Christians not openly condemning any group who claimed to be following some biblical directive to murder, maim, rape, pillage and beheading those they considered “apostates.”  Many Muslims seem to be living in fear of offering such condemnation.  Fearful of the caliphate.  If a Muslim truly believes Islam is a religion of peace they should openly and immediately step forward and condemn jihadism and terrorism committed in the name of Islam.  Many polls indicate that many so-called moderate Muslims not only refuse to condemn the actions of ISIS and other terrorist groups but believe they are right and desire Sharia Law wherever they reside to supersede the Laws of that Land.

Blog Post - War on Terrorism

We are engaged in a War with Terrorism whether we want to be or not.  They declared the war and have demonstrated a willingness and ability to carry out their threats if left undeterred.  If we continue to make excuses attempting to disassociate the ideological and religious from the jihadist we err gravely.  We should be asking what drives them to do what they do not suggesting that anyone openly critical of their actions as phobic.  The focus and blame is frequently pointed in the wrong direction.  Until, Muslims unitedly stand against the Islamic caliphate and condemn the jihad and terror we should not assume or adopt the view that the jihadist are radicals but fundamentalist.

God help us wake up before it is too late and may God bless you and God bless America Again!  Let me conclude saying, “I pray for all people and desire that all people come to the Light of God’s love, mercy and grace.”  I readily acknowledge there are many Muslims who do not engage in violence or terror and yet in those seemingly peaceable communities some of the atrocities committed against women, children and others is unthinkable in what is called a religion of peace.   Terrorism is evil no matter its ideological or religious base!
