DEMOCRATS and REPUBLICANS, ELECTIONS and AMERICA…


BLOG POST 7 - WHAT DOES THAT SAY ABOUT US

What I’m going to write about is not original for I am not the first to touch on the subject or broach the question but when we look at the Democrats, Republicans, and Presidential Elections I have to ask what does our current political climate and condition say about us?  When I consider who the Democrats and Republicans have nominated since Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy, I notice some consistent patterns and it disturbs me greatly.

I believe that Dwight Eisenhower and John F. Kennedy both loved America and wanted what was best for the nation.  I may or may not have agreed with their political ideologies or strategies all the time but I believe they both believed in the Constitution and in America.  After those Presidents, I cannot say that with complete confidence.  In fact, my observation, with possibly one or two exceptions is that the pattern of nominees from the Democrats has been of the same ilk regarding character and the Republicans have offered people largely opposite.  Yet, the Democrats, since, George H.W. Bush have, with one exception, defeated the Republicans while offering candidates of questionable character.  How can that be?  I believe it says more about America and Americans than the political parties.

George H.W. Bush was a terrible disappointment because he violated his campaign promises on more than one issue but especially on his “read my lips” promise regarding no new taxes.  His failures opened the door to a man that was a known philanderer and had a history of incredibly dark and questionable associations and involvements in his political life.  Yet, he (Clinton) defeated Bush and we endured two terms even with him demonstrating his propensity for lascivious behavior and questionable actions to cover his exploits that endangered and harmed America.  Of course, his 2nd term came at the expense of the sacrificial lamb, Bob Dole the Republicans offered knowing he had about as much chance inspiring voters as a snowball would surviving hell’s flames.

In the next cycle, the Republicans nominated a man perceived by many as a dolt and cowboy but one whose message and personality resonated with millions.  George W. Bush won two terms and then the Democrats once again offered us a man of incredibly questionable character whose most significant claim to electability was his ethnicity, not qualifications.  He was closely associated with domestic terrorist and the Chicago mob-based Democrat Political Machine and Money People.  He was mentored by none other than Frank Marshall Davis, a card-carrying communist who hated America and everything about Western culture and government.  One of his (Barack Obama’s) inspirations was Saul Alinksy, who declared in his book ‘Rules for Radicals’ that the book was dedicated to “the very first radical”, Lucifer.  Alinsky also said, “In a fight, almost anything goes.  It almost reaches a point where you stop to apologize if a blow lands above the belt.”  Barack Obama has followed the Alinsky model to the letter including calling Republicans “enemies” and inviting Paul Ryan to a speech for the sole purpose of attacking him in public, knowing it was a direct violation of federal law and daring anyone to stop him.  A federal judge in Texas took him up on his challenge even though four of the Supreme Court Justices would have allowed him to do whatever with no consideration of the laws.  STILL, the public voted him in not once but twice and anyone who opposed or opposes him is labeled a racist or something equally derogatory.

BLOG POST 7 - Qualifications

Sadly, the Democrats have demonstrated a consistent propensity to nominate people of questionable and even evil character and the Republicans nominate people who are not so tainted in their personal lives, political ideology and demonstrate a heart or love for America and the Constitution and still lose.  How can this be?  In this election we have an individual being nominated by the Democrats who has brazenly lied to the American people repeatedly about Benghazi, her emails, her associations and dealings with foreign governments and shady characters, the Clinton Slush-Fund Foundation and pilfering millions from various sources for their personal and political benefit disregarding the law, moral rightness, and the American Constitution. Although the FBI has refused to recommend criminal charges for criminal activity they did say that she was “EXTREMELY CARELESS”.  Is that what we want for President?  EXTREME CARELESSNESS or GROSS NEGLIGENCE?  Yes, that is what we get from Washington but we are talking about the next President.  I won’t say that Donald Trump is of impeccable character but I do believe that he loves America and wants what is best for the nation.  His ideas may or may not all be right or even possible but there is a distinct difference between Mr. Trump and Mrs. Clinton.  It seems that over the past few elections or since John F. Kennedy between the Democrat and Republican candidates we have one party offering us corrupt and even diabolical candidates and still winning.  “How can this be?”   YET, America keeps electing the Democrats with no seeming regard for character.  What does that say about us?

I believe we are facing and have faced for some time, a very deep moral issue in our nation.  We have drifted from our founding principles and the principles of morality and rightness to a self-centeredness and entitlement mentality that is destroying our nation.  We have reached the place that character in politics is meaningless and we have virtually sold our souls for benefits and entitlements or fear of being branded with a negative characterization by the Politically Correct Society in which we now live.

We need to return to God and 2 Chronicles 7:14 is a plea that is needed in our present America.  You may totally disagree about the need to return to God but as a Christian, I believe that if we fail to restore our moral moorings we will completely and irrevocably lose this Republic.  More reasons to remember November and consider what is at risk in allowing Hillary Clinton ascending to the Oval Office.

God help us and God bless you and may He bless America again!   

 

LET ME ASK THE TABOO QUESTION…


BLOG POST 4 - Taboo

Taboo question?  What could you be talking about, Roy?  The faith or lack thereof of President Barack Obama.  The question:  “If Barack Obama is a Christian, as he claims and is not a Muslim as his supporters claim, why?”  Why, what?  Why the inconsistencies and the repeated denigration of Christians and Christianity, the misquoting and misapplying Scripture, and the incessant defense of Islam?

If Barack Hussein Obama is, in fact, a Christian and why would he be so incensed at any criticism of Islam or Muslims but have no problem with criticism of and attacks on Christianity?  Why would he continually defend a religion and a book of religion that is diametrically opposite of the Bible, the teachings of Jesus and Christianity?  What is it about his beliefs that make Islam so beautiful and Christianity so ugly?  Why would he seem to look for opportunities to condemn the Crusades of bygone eras and not decry the atrocities of Islam and Muslims through the centuries?  Why would he demand that we tolerate and not speak negatively about the actions of Muslims or question Islam but not demand the same from Muslims and followers of Islam?  WHY?  That is a very important question and one we probably cannot fully answer but, in my view, a very valid question and one that should demand answers.

Barack Hussein Obama in his speech before the United Nations General Assembly on September 25, 2012, regarding the death of U.S. Ambassador Christ Stevens and three other Americans during the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, attempted to make a YouTube video about Muslims the culprit and cause.  In that speech he declared, “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam.”  I realize that he spoke about other things as well, but that statement is a classic demand of Muslims worldwide and used as a justification for their terrorism.  They believe they are directed by their god to slaughter anyone who speaks negatively about their prophet.  Where is the condemnation for that view, which is a core teaching of their book!

Barack Hussein Obama in an interview called the Muslim call to prayer, “one of the prettiest sounds on Earth at sunset.”  He then recited the opening lines of the Arabic call to prayer with a first-rate accent.  He has declared, “We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world – including my own country.”  What country is that Mr. Obama?  It is most assuredly not the United States of America as history and research will clearly reveal.  He declared, “As a student of history, I also know civilization’s debt to Islam.”  What debt is that?  What contributions has Islam given in science, literature, or human relations?  He also said, “Islam has a proud tradition of tolerance.”  I had to laugh when I heard that because tolerance and beheading anyone who disagrees makes his statement contradictory, but I am not viewing Islam through rose colored glasses or with a bias to accept, promote or defend it.  I am looking what its followers do and say.

BLOG POST 4 - Duck

One of the most shocking and revealing statements of Barack Hussein Obama was, “Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation.”  He also declared in 2009, “If you actually took the number of Muslims in America, we’d be one of the largest Muslim nations in the world.”  Using CIA and other reports it would seem that if you took the 60 most populous Muslim states, America would rank 58th.  Yet, with the CIA Factbook reporting that less than 1% of the U.S. population is Muslim, why is there such demand that we allow them to practice Sharia Law in communities in direct violation of the U.S. Constitution and existing American laws?  Why is there such an insistence that we TOLERATE the Islamic community but no demand for RECOPRICAL acceptance and tolerance?  The question looms large as more and more acts of Islamic terrorism occur in America and more and more pressure to accept and tolerate Sharia Law is placed on society.  Why?

America’s founding fathers did not incorporate principles of Islam but the Bible and Christianity in our founding documents.  America may not be genuinely a Christian nation but we are most assuredly not a Muslim nation.  Barack Hussein Obama may not be a Muslim or a practicing one, but he certainly is overly concerned with defending them at the expense of America and Americans.  Why? 

When a president can become more indignant at the presumptive nominee of the opposing party than the murdering Islamic terrorist, I have to ask why?  When the president can blame Christians, Republicans, Conservatives, and the NRA more than the murdering Islamic terrorist, I have to ask why?  When the president who has taken an oath of office to Protect and Defend the U.S. Constitution and whose job is to protect America citizens but can blame Americans for the evils of Islamic jihadist and insist we are the cause rather than condemn the evils of the ideology, religion, and philosophy they espouse, I have to ask why?  No, I do not have all the answers, or maybe any of the answers but the old adage comes to mind, “If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, acts like a duck, and swims like a duck it just might be a duck.”   If he loves America and wants to “protect and defend” her against all enemies both foreign and domestic, why the persistent defense of Islam?  Mr. President, I’d really like an honest answer to those questions.   After almost eight years of this administration’s destructive policies can we seriously consider another administration that would perpetuate or expand those policies?  My answer and prayer are simple – NO!  So, I urge you to carefully think about the cost of Hillary Clinton becoming President.  I believe the cost is too great!

God bless you and God bless America!

 

 

TOO BIG TO JAIL – The Clintons…


BLOG POST 4 - TOO BIG TO JAIL

Most of you agree with me that NO ONE is or should be above the Law but clearly, this administration and the Clinton history indicates they either have enough power, know enough dirt, or are feared enough to escape the long arm of the law and justice.  I have heard from several criminal prosecuting attorneys and judges and to a person, they are stunned, for a legal perspective, at FBI Directory James Comey’s explanation of what and why regarding Hillary Clinton’s email issue.  I would call it a scandal but apparently not so for the Democrats, the FBI or the DOJ now we have to wait for the American people to weigh in and that won’t come until November.  I wish I could say was hopeful that America would soundly reject her but history indicates the strong possibility of that not being the case.  I am stunned at my nation, appalled at the corruption in government, and disgusted with what is happening. 

The FBI Director, a former U.S. Attorney, is not ignorant of the very laws he is ignoring to render this ruling.  I cannot believe he did so without coercion from those above him in the political food-chain and if he did, he has demonstrated zero qualifications or integrity to hold the job he now holds.  In his explanation of the situation regarding former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton he described her and her staff as being guilty of “extreme carelessness” which by virtually all legal definitions is “gross negligence” and worthy of indictment and prosecution.  But, not so says the FBI Director.  He deemed her not guilty of criminal wrong-doing because she did not “intend” to harm the United States or break the law.  Seriously?  That is a defense and justification for allowing someone who has placed our national security in jeopardy?  If that is the standard by which criminals are exonerated and excused from criminal charges we might as well close the courts and empty the jails because what criminal in their right mind would admit to intentionally breaking the law?

BLOG POST 4 - Classified

Under the U.S. Code, 18 U.S.C., section 793(f) Hillary Clinton should be indicted as follows, “Whoever, being entrusted with… any document relating to the national defense…through gross negligence permits the same to be removed from its proper place of custody… shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than ten years, or both.”  Wikipedia using layman’s wording defines “gross negligence” in this manner, “Gross negligence is a legal concept which means serious carelessness.”  Okay so the Director said “extreme” not “serious” but which is worse or are they the same?  Please don’t try to split hairs I have no tolerance for that right now.

 blog post 4 - hILLARY 1

From what I can discover the FBI documented 110 emails in 52 separate chains that were classified when they were sent or received.  Hillary said none of them were but the FBI said, “Sorry, they were, but no problem we’ll just overlook that reality.”  Intent should not be the issue but factual evidence of placing our national defense at risk, which she did.  Even if the documents were not marked “classified” and some of them clearly were.  We know EIGHT (8) of them were TOP SECRET, THIRTY-SIX (36) were SECRET and the remainder CLASSIFIED how could the supposedly imminently qualified Secretary of State not know the gravity of those emails?   This individual is supposedly the most qualified person to be President and I have to ask, “Do we really want ‘gross negligence’ or ‘extreme carelessness’ with a document regarding our national security to be in the hands of someone so careless or callous?”  If she has such low regard for the gravity and importance of those documents and her actions what would she be careless about as President?  How about our Nuclear Codes and the Football?  I shudder to think about that individual being the Commander in Chief.  May it never be!

BLOG POST 4 - dELETE

General David Petraeus was ridden out on a rail for what was, in the opinion of many, essentially pillow talk with his biographer.  Compare that with what the FBI Director said regarding Hillary’s actions and handling of classified information.  The Director apparently misinterpreted another statute other than 18 U.S.C. 793(f) where intent would be considered but not under this statute which is the one most legal expert’s state should have been used.  The Director made a most interesting statement saying, “To be clear, this is not to suggest in similar circumstances, a person who gauged this activity would gauge no consequences.  To the contrary, those individuals are often subject to security or administrative sanctions but that is not what we are deciding now.”  Mr. Director, exactly what were we deciding?  It appears that we were deciding that the presumptive Democrat nominee for President was above the law and the Democrats were unwilling to risk losing her were you to follow the prescribed law.

All this coming on the heels of Bill Clinton and Loretta Lynch’s supposed unscheduled and unplanned meeting and Hillary’s statement that she would certainly consider keeping Lynch as the Attorney General.  America, if we allow corrupt politicians to become TOO BIG TO JAIL we have surrendered our Republic to Tyranny.  If the American people allow Hillary Clinton to become the next President of the United States of America, go ahead and turn out the lights there is no party and the proverbial fat lady has already sung.  I have cried out a warning after warning about Hillary Clinton and still have people tell me they are willing to see her win to prove their point.  If she is elected and when not if she strips us of our constitutional rights, packs the Supreme Court and further damages our military and destroys our economy what will be the point that was being made?  We are facing more than a minor nuisance for four to eight years we are facing life or death of the Republic.  Many are firmly entrenched in the NEVER TRUMP movement but I have to ask “Are you sure that Trump is as bad or worse than Hillary?”  I have questions on numerous fronts regarding Donald Trump but I have NO QUESTIONS about Hillary Clinton.  She is not just wrong for America she is the enemy of America and I have no doubt her election would mean the completion of Barack Obama’s “total transformation”.  The Supreme Court would be an arm of the Leftist, our Constitutional Rights would be amended if not rescinded without due process, our economy further crushed, healthcare and so many other things pushed along the path of no return.  America WE CANNOT AFFORD a Hillary Clinton Presidency. That is my opinion and I stand by it.

God bless you and God deliver and bless America is my prayer!

 

 

 

THE ALTERNATE UNIVERSE OF DENIAL…


BLOG POST 4 - Denial

This President wants us to believe that if we identify the Radical Islamic Terrorist as Islamic we legitimize, empower, and embolden them.  Hillary Clinton and the Democrats echo that chorus and sadly too many Republicans jump on the Politically Correct Bandwagon and lecture us about so-called Islamophobia.  ISIS and the Islamic Jihadist do not need our recognition to be considered a legitimate threat, they are!  They are not empowered by our identification of them, they are empowered by our denial of the problem. They are not emboldened by our refusal to call them what they are, they are emboldened because of the perceived weakness on our part.  No, Mr. President your denial is not advancing the war on terror nor is it weakening their position, influence, power, or danger.

This President has declared that Americans with guns are a greater threat than Islamic Terrorism or Terrorism. Wait?  He actually believes that those of us who own, keep and bear arms are Domestic Terrorist and a threat?  We are a threat, but only to the nefarious attempts to subvert our constitutional rights and liberties and attempts to so fundamentally transform America she is no longer the Free Constitutional Republic.  Therefore, in my view, He is an equal if not a greater threat to America and the world as ISIS or any Islamic jihadist.  His ideology is not just dangerous it is destructive.  He may believe he is acting in the best interest of America but he is tragically misguided if that is his true heart.

BLOG POST 4 - Denial 3

DENIAL is incredibly powerful and dangerous.  It can and often does cause people to ignore danger, problems, or solutions that are glaringly visible for all who will honestly view the situation.  It is said, and rightly so in some situations, the pen is mightier than the sword.  However, when facing an enemy with a weapon seeking to kill, maim, pillage, and destroy writing them a note, poem, or challenging their ideology and intent on paper will end in disaster for the one with the pen.  They will not only laugh at that approach it will, in all likelihood, infuriate them and cause them to seek to do more damage and destruction.  Peace is not achieved through coddling and appeasing the perpetrator or one waging war it is achieved by power, either killing enough of the enemy they accept defeat or demonstrating the ability to inflict sufficient damage they rethink their objective.  Peace is achieved through strength, not denial. 

Putting a piece of masking tape over the “check engine light” on the car’s dash will not remove the problem.  Repainting a wall where termites have eaten through the sheetrock will not remove the problem.  Refusing to go to the doctor when a deadly disease is suspected does not remove the disease.  NO, denial does not resolve the problem it usually makes the problem worse or leads to worse problems and the policy of denial regarding radical Islamic terror does not make it go away.  Denying the problems in the economy does not create jobs.  Denying the problems in Healthcare and Obamacare does not magically remove the problem.  Denying the problem of ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION does not instantly turn all the Illegals into Legal citizens and remove the danger and threat.  NO, it exacerbates and escalates the problem.

BLOG POST 4 - Denial 1

I know people who refuse to reign in their credit card spending denying the fact they do not have the funds to pay the bills when they arrive.  The end result is financial chaos.  I know people who deny a problem in their marriage or relationships somehow believing if they just deny and do not talk about it, the problem will somehow dissolve into thin air.  The result is often a divorce, not a resolution.  I consider denial living in an “Alternate Universe” that is completely devoid of reality and reason.  It is a “Fantasy World” and one that only produces sorrow, not victory or joy.  It is a place that millions have chosen to live politically in America and that Utopian Denial Fantasy has brought us to the brink of destruction as the Constitutional Republic.

The picture of the three monkeys, “See no evil, hear no evil, and speak no evil” and the “ostrich with its head in the sand” always comes to mind when I hear much of the rhetoric in the media and politics today.  Sadly, I hear it in churches as well, where some have adopted the philosophy that if we do not address the problems they do not exist.  THEY EXIST!  We must not only acknowledge the problem we must address the cause in order to find the remedy.  If we only see the problem and not the cause we will never discover the solution.  If you are traveling in uncharted territory, denying you are lost, will not make you any less lost, it will only exasperate you for a longer period of time.   You may eventually stumble on the right path but as I’ve heard all my life, “Even a blind squirrel finds an acorn once in a while.”  Solutions are arrived at when we acknowledge the problem or condition, discover the cause, and commit to the reasonable and rational remedy.  DENIAL brings DESTRUCTION.  It may leave a person with a sense of “false bliss” through ignorance but it will not lessen the danger or problem.

BLOG POST 4 - Denial 2

That is where we are in America and in the Elections of 2016, at every level, we must acknowledge the Problem or Condition, discover the cause, and embrace the remedy.  Every election is important.  America, we can no longer afford the luxury of denial we must find the remedy and that first begins with acknowledging the problem.

God bless you and God bless America!
