BLOG POST 1 - What in the World

The more I consider what is happening with the Supreme Court confirmation process for the nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, the more I realize that our world is a sick, sick, sick place.  I have come to realize that there is no depth to the debauchery and diabolical dirty tricks the liberal leftists will descend.  They have one purpose, and that is to destroy President Donald Trump and I honestly do not know if they know or care that in the process they are ripping our Republic to shreds.  It is more than simply a ‘double standard’ employed by the leftists it is willing blindness, attempts to justify, and sitting as judge, jury, and executioner of any conservative or Republican while extending the hand of mercy and insisting on the age-old principle of ‘innocent until proven guilty’ for Democrats.  In today’s political world, accusations are sufficient to convict if it is a conservative or Republican!  The Democrats in Congress, the MSM, Hollywood, and the Never Trump coalition ignore the many revealed charges of sexual impropriety against Democrats, for the most part, but strive to convict a Republican in the Court of Public Opinion.  Never mind that the charges may be baseless, without the possibility of corroboration, and politically motivated, destruction of the accused is the desire, not truth or justice.  It almost seems, if you are a Conservative, Christian, White Male – YOU ARE GUILTY!  Never fear, they will find some charge to level at you because based on your political ideology, your faith, and your ethnicity – YOU ARE DEEMED GUILTY!

I cannot help but wonder why Senator Diane Feinstein would readily and eagerly receive a letter from Dr. Christine Ford with an accusation that the Senator confesses she does not know if the allegations are true.  It is simply because she seeks to destroy the nominee for the Supreme Court?  Yet, that same Senator refused to even read the deposition of Juanita Broderick regarding her charge of rape against Bill Clinton.  WHY is one credible and the other not worthy of even a cursory reading of the charges, Senator?  I will not hold my breath awaiting your response for that will likely never come.  I cannot help but wonder, how the Democrats can now insist that these allegations disqualify Judge Brett Kavanaugh from consideration for the Supreme Court since they insisted that Bill Clinton’s prior sexual scandals had no bearing on him serving as President.  Is the Supreme Court more important or to be held to a higher standard than President?  Again, I won’t hold my breath waiting for an explanation from the Left.

Dr. Ford’s memory of the events appears to be sketchy and I will argue that any person suffering from PTSD and anyone who experienced an attempted rape or anything of the sort, NEVER FORGETS!  I’ve talked to Psychological Counselors and dealt with situations in my years of ministry where the victim could give details to the minute, yet this woman cannot.  That is problematic, in my mind.  Her husband stated on one occasion that she came forward to her analyst in 2012 and brought up Judge Kavanaugh because as is recorded in a Washington Post article, “his wife used Kavanaugh’s last name and voiced concern that Kavanaugh – then a federal judge – might one day be nominated to the Supreme Court.” Motive? Isn’t that a bit suspect?  Her liberal activism has been undeniably documented.  She has been and is a Democrat Activist.  A little known piece of the puzzle might be found in the fact that Judge Kavanaugh’s mother ruled in a foreclosure case regarding Dr. Ford’s parent’s home.  It is a bit odd that her social media has been scrubbed, her high school yearbook removed from the internet along with the history of wild partying by girls in her school.  She has been a long-time donor to the Democrat Party and makes the “P” hats and wears them to Anti-Trump rallies.  Her brother has worked for the ‘Baker Law Firm’ for 15 years and by the way, that law firm is the Law Firm for ‘Fusion GPS’.   Do you see a possible pattern yet? 

At this ‘gathering’ or ‘party’ where the alleged attempted rape took place, we now know that supposedly there was also another girl present.  It might be possible to forget the names of the other boys, other than the alleged attacker but not the girl.  I would suggest that she would have likely told the girl what happened.  She claimed to have been so traumatized by the incident that she received, ‘medical treatment’ but there are no known or revealed hospital records to verify this account.  Strange isn’t it?  If there were records why would they disappear?  Who took her home?  Would she not remember the name of that person, her Good Samaritan?  How could you forget their name or not remember who if anyone took you home?  Repressed Memory?  That is a bit much for rational thought, but alas, she has made the allegations and to the Democrats, MSM, Hollywood, Activists, and Never Trump Crowd that is sufficient to convict without a trial or any rebuttal.  After all, Judge Kavanaugh is a White Male who is Conservative and was nominated by the dastardly Donald Trump, he must be guilty, no need for a trial.

Dr. Ford has released selective portions of the therapist’s notes, “cherry picking” is the term the Democrats like to use for partial disclosures that might lead to distortions.  Her therapist’s notes describe the alleged attack, but there is no mention of Brett Kavanaugh or Mr. Judge in those notes.  The notes indicate that there were four boys present but her letter to Senator Feinstein says there were two.  Both alleged assailants and another supposed attendee have all categorically denied the event ever took place.  She cannot remember the exact location, the date, or even the year and isn’t sure if it was a bedroom or just a room with a door.  One time it was a bed and the next it was a room.  Those details are problematic or should be.

This has all the earmarks of a ‘set-up’ and smacks with the tactic to delay, delay, delay in order to keep this on the front burner right up to and beyond the mid-term elections.  If this actually happened to Dr. Ford, my heart goes out to her and I would NEVER condone that kind of violence and violation by anyone or to anyone.  Sexual assault is reprehensible and there is no defense.  That being said, this is an ALLEGATION, not PROOF and if we are to be fair and honest it must remain that.  There can be no rush to judgment, but tragically the Democrats in the Senate, and many in the media have tried, convicted, and pronounced sentence on Judge Kavanaugh in a very Un-American manner.  It, at this point, appears to be a political ploy.  If she was assaulted and required medical treatment, her parents would assuredly have been told.  I don’t know her parents, but I know if my daughter were assaulted and I became aware of it there would be no stopping me pursuing bringing the culprit to justice.  Silence for 30 years would not have been an option.  She even alleged that she was afraid that Brett Kavanaugh would “inadvertently kill her.”  INADVERTENTLY?  What does that mean, did he supposedly threaten her?

She reported this incident to her “local government representative” on July 16, 2018.  She then wrote a letter to Senator Diane Feinstein to provide “relevant information regarding the current nominee” to the Supreme Court.  INTERESTING TIMING! This provided a pathway to bring this to the public forum.  She didn’t specify the year but stated that it was the early 1980’s.  With the acknowledgment of her husband that her bringing this to the attention of a couple’s therapist was concern over Judge Kavanaugh being considered for the Supreme Court, I am troubled.  She claimed she told no one out of fear that she would not be believed.  That is possible, but not likely that she told NO ONE if it actually happened.  However, I cannot fathom parents not taking to heart the claims of their 15-year old daughter who alleges an attempted rape.  UNLESS her history with her parents was one of fantasy tales that left her unbelievable.  I’m not saying that was the case only searching for possible explanations.  The second accused person Mark Judge stated categorically that the event never happened as did a third person.  Why would she contact a political representative, not Law Enforcement or the FBI?  Why did the local government official or Senator Feinstein not contact the FBI?  Instead of taking the proper actions the Senator played a political game and held the information as a closely guarded secret until all other attempts to derail the confirmation failed then dropped this ‘bombshell’ of unsubstantiated charges against the nominee.   The Senator still refuses to give a copy to the committee.  Strange Isn’t It?

I see another possible purpose in all this by the Democrats.  The accuser has sidestepped attempts to get her to testify under oath and insists that the FBI investigate the man who has been investigated six-times and come out spotless each time.  Her desire to have the FBI attempt to corroborate or at least bring question regarding the alleged incident would provide her a platform to shape her testimony to conform to the FBI report.  She could then modify or conveniently REMEMBER what she had FORGOTTEN.  Chris Matthews of MSNBC has come out what may be the real intent of the Democrats.  He suggested that the Republicans might confirm Judge Kavanaugh but then on the Monday or Sunday before the mid-term elections Dr. Ford would go on national television and tell her story with no challenge to her statements.  He giddily said, “This is deadly for the Republicans!”  That may well be the strategy.  The Democrats may hope the Republicans go forward and confirm then they can destroy them in the mid-terms with this eleventh-hour fiasco.  However, there is also the possibility that they hope this so clouds the waters the Republicans refuse to confirm, Kavanaugh steps aside, or President Trump withdraws the nomination.  That would leave them in a power position where the next nominee could not possibly be confirmed before the elections and would likely go through the same scenario should the Republicans hang on and maintain control of Congress.

We live in a very sad world where ALLEGATIONS are allowed to destroy a person’s life, shipwreck our judicial and political system, and thereby dismantle our Constitutional Republic.  I will say, once again, I don’t know if this incident happened there is no real way to know.  I don’t know if a person suffering from ‘repressed memory’ as is being claimed might have remembered Brett Kavanaugh because of her political ideology when, in fact, it was another teenaged boy that committed the offense.  I do not know!  You do not know!  No person on this planet except Dr. Ford knows and she clearly has an agenda to STOP Brett Kavanaugh from becoming the next Supreme Court Justice.

What we do know is that there are dozens of women who have worked around or for Judge Kavanaugh and each of them has praised his treatment of women, his integrity, and honesty.  Those who know him have affirmed they have never seen this side of him and do not believe the allegations.  I find it disgusting that people like Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, Keith Ellison, and other Democrats would attempt to eviscerate Judge Kavanaugh while history reveals their defense of Democrats accused of sexual and other crimes.  It is not hypocrisy it is deviously diabolical, and we MUST maintain the principle in America that “everyone is innocent UNTIL proven guilty.”  THAT MUST NOT CHANGE!

Okay, this is a very long argument and hope you were able to wade through it and find something that resonates with you.  Hopefully, this incident and the many other antics of the Leftists will cause you to realize just how important the mid-term elections are to America and our Constitutional and Inalienable Rights.  This is WAR!  Failure to realize that will mean defeat and place us on what I believe will be an irreversible course heading to destruction.  I pray we will not let that happen!

God bless you and God bless America!



BLOG POST 8 - Nose and Face

I’m sure most have heard the phrase, “Don’t cut your nose off to spite your face.”  It is documented that the phrase has been used since the 12th Century and may have been used even before that.  Some legends report it as the result of an actual event by the nun, Saint Elba, the Mother Superior of the monastery of Coldingham Priory in 867 AD when Vikings from Zealand and Uppsala landed in Scotland.  She reportedly instructed the nuns to disfigure themselves in an attempt to appear unappealing to the Vikings.  Her solution was to cut off her nose and upper lip and the nuns followed her example.  Thus, the birth of the phrase was born, so it is reported.  It became a blanket term directed at what was deemed unwise and self-destructive actions often motivated by anger, desire for revenge, and hate.  There were reported incidents where a man would become so angered by his wife that he would burn down their house to punish her.  The lunacy of that action is clear.  In burning down the house to punish his wife he also punished himself and the rest of the family.

The Democrats and those Republicans, Conservatives, and those identifying as Constitutionalist who are part of the resistance and Never Trump movement seem to be doing just that, “cutting off their noses to spite their faces.”  Their desire to punish Trump and rid themselves of their nemesis and perceived menace is prodding them to actions and positions that not only could hurt Trump but EVERYONE!  That is absolutely insane in my humble opinion.  When celebrities, Democrats, Media Talking Heads, and those not Democrats who are filled with animosity toward this president can openly pine for our economy to fail, is that not an example of this flawed logic?  Are they so insulated from economic conditions they will not suffer if our economy goes in the tank?  Are they so insulated from the threat of terrorism that should our borders be thrown open and terrorist openly and freely enter this nation, they will not be endangered?  Are they so insulated and isolated that in advancing the idea of censorship, the loss of our 1st, 2nd, and 4th Amendment Rights they will never suffer the tyranny of whatever despotic powers that gain oversight of the nation?  I believe their actions are a clear example of “Cutting off their nose to spite their face.”  In hurting Trump and anyone who voted for or supports him they hurt themselves too.  That is lunacy!

Freedom of Speech must be Freedom for Everyone or it is Freedom for No One!  Our Inalienable Rights cannot be stripped away from some, whom we disagree without opening the door to the loss of those rights for everyone.  If anyone is so naïve as to believe that Politicians, Oligarchs, and Despots will honor those who helped them gain power and afford them the Rights they have destroyed for others, I weep for that person.  If we allow the assault on the 2nd Amendment to come to the fruition desired by the Leftists and Liberals of America, we will find that EVERYONE is placed in greater danger.  The Right of Self-Defense is not simply a Constitutional Right it is an Inalienable Right and one that MUST be protected in order to protect the other rights and freedoms we now enjoy.  The Right to Pursue Happiness and Worship according to the dictate of our hearts in a peaceable fashion and the Right to have and voice an opinion MUST be protected or we will plunge into the abyss of Tyranny where the only rights allowed are those deemed by the State or Despotic Head of the nation.  That is “cutting off the nose to spite the face” and it is ludicrous.

When I consider the options in our current electoral process I consider a vote that enables the Left to reclaim power or control of Congress an exercise in “cutting off the nose to spite the face.”  Millions refused to vote for Mitt Romney in 2012 resulting in Barack Obama being awarded a Second Term as President.  Those millions were, “sending a message”, so they declared and were willing to allow Obama a Second Term rather than vote for a candidate they did not like.  That, in my view, was “cutting off the nose to spite the face.”  Who was harmed by that action?  Not simply Mitt Romney or the Republican Party but EVERYONE or the vast majority of Americans not on the dole.  The Entitlement Crowd may be deemed to have benefitted from Obama’s Second Term but not America.  The sponsors of Terrorism and the Islamic Terrorist benefitted from his Second Term but not America.  BUT, millions decided that in order to express their dissatisfaction in the General Election they would “cut off their noses to spite their faces.”  Patriots and lovers of Freedom the time to send a message is in the Primaries, not the General Election if we want to keep America from plunging further into the darkness of Socialism, Liberalism, and Globalism.

I am 100% behind any effort to defeat the RINOs in the Primaries and to award the nomination to candidates who stand on the principles that made America the Great Nation she has been.  I am 100% behind seeking and electing candidates who are truly Constitutionalist and will staunchly defend and stand for the Rule of Law in the Primaries.  I am not saying abandon all principles and violate your conscience in the General Election but consider the consequences of our actions.  We must avoid, “cutting off our noses to spite our faces” in allowing the Liberal Leftists to regain power and continue the “fundamental transformation” that Barack Obama declared was his objective.  We must prevent the continued erosion of our Constitutional Rights and its recognized place and authority in our Republic.  I believe that doing anything other than DEFEATING THE LEFTIST in 2018 and beyond qualifies as “cutting off our nose to spite our face” because the harm is to EVERYONE, not just those we want to hurt.

If you are so filled with hate or hold to such opposition of this President that you are willing to do harm to America and yourself in order to defeat him, I ask that you stop and think of the consequences.  Who are you hurting?  You are hurting all of us and I beg you to reconsider that position.  America, we dare not “cut off our nose to spite our face” if we hope to fully restore Constitutionality to the Republic, Drain the Swamp to any measurable degree, and Dismantle the Deep State.  If we truly want Limited Government, then let’s prevent the Democrats and Leftists from reclaiming power in 2018 and then become devotedly and doggedly engaged in the effort to find, nominate, and elect true American Patriots in 2020 and begin the marathon of RESTORATION.  We can do this, but it will require us to stop self-destruction.  Some will protest and call me vile names even accuse me of being part of a Trump Cult but if you honestly evaluate what I am saying you will realize that I am PRO-AMERICA and willing to do whatever I can to protect and defend this Republic.

God Bless you and God Bless America!


BLOG POST 7 - Unforgivable

Donald Trump has committed the Unpardonable Sin, in the minds of Democrats and Never Trumpers.  What is that sin?  Not it is not the blasphemy of the Holy Spirit, for most of the Democrat politicians seem to have no interest or knowledge of the Bible.  So, what is his sin?  What is his crime for which he must be impeached?  His crime:  Obstruction of Liberalism.  That is the worst possible sin in the minds of those following the toxic brand of liberalism, progressivism, socialism, and globalism.  THAT IS UNFORGIVABLE and UNPARDONABLE!  Well, to them but not to millions of us who want that to transpire.

They are befuddled because he does not play the political game like previous Republicans and those in Congress.  He does not run from his own shadow as certain members of Congress and former administrations.  He has achieved some very impressive things despite the lack of support by members of his own party in Congress.  One of his accomplishments has been to virtually dismantle and obliterate the Obama Legacy and expose it for what it truly is.  Republicans claimed to want that, but the members of the House and Senate who are part of the RINO resistance and Never Trump coalition never meant what they said.  They made those promises and claims to elicit votes and win election or reelection.  Someone said, “Silence is golden, but when your Freedom is at stake it is yellow.”  Sadly, too many are exposing the yellowness of their spine rather than goldenness.

The Left believes that the policies they embrace are a birthright.  They believe that the Constitution is an antiquated dinosaur that must be revised, reinterpreted, removed, and ignored.  It, as lamented, the former president “prevents them from doing what they want.”  THANK GOD!  Liberalism has become a religion and a type of opioid that drugs the liberal mind to the point that they can worship at no other altar and pursue no other objective.  Never mind the failures of their policies and agenda.  Never mind the inadequacy of their ideological pursuits.  Never mind, the damage it does to the Republic – IT MUST BE OBEYED or ELSE!

The Left and too many on the Right are left in shock at the failure of the Leftists, the activist, the MSM, Hollywood, etc. to shake Trump from his agenda.  He is accused of being incoherent and unfocused but when I consider what has happened in less than two years under his administration that claim seems a bit out of step with reality.  They cannot understand how this non-politician’s behavior is not dictated by the opinion of others especially the Democrats and media.  He does not embrace the Code of Politics that seems to be an unwritten law in Washington, adhered to by both Republicans and Democrats.  He came from the outside and he has become their mortal enemy.  Their hate of anyone and anything that dares to refuse to worship at the altar of liberalism and Donald Trump has refused, thus far.  They take out their hate on anyone surrounding him, his nominees, and every policy he puts forth.  It does not matter that the Tax Cuts have given new life to the Economy.  Their objective and agenda are to REMOVE TRUMP first and focuses on America second, if at all.  His campaign slogan and motto, “Make America Great Again” is so infuriating to them some, like Andrew Cuomo declares, “America was never that great” or Meghan McCain, “America was always great.”  Acknowledging his accomplishments is beyond them.

The Left and some on the Right have decried his tariffs and insisted they would destroy the economy.  Amazingly, jobless claims fell to a new post-1969 record of 203,000 recently.  His trade negotiations with China and others seem to be opening the door to new agreements that are good for America.  However, the Left finds it impossible to give him credit for his business acumen and his resolve to address issues with America’s interest at the forefront.  NOPE, He is not one of them, and is impeding their progress, therefore, HE MUST BE DESTROYED!

They find it impossible to acknowledge a Truth that Conservatives and Constitutionalist have believed for a long time, Lowering Taxes does increase revenue.  It has provided nearly one-third of a trillion dollars in six months after the cuts in investment in employee training and infrastructure by American companies.  THAT IS AMAZING and worthy of praise.  The federal government collected a record $1.3 TRILLION in income taxes through the first nine months of FY18, beating the previous record by $71 BILLION.  THAT IS AMAZING!  Who knew that about half of all Americas were Nazis before he won the White House.  ABSURD, of course by that is the position of the Leftists.

Another inconvenient truth is that the Racism problem is the Left’s problem, not the Right.  Before you scream obscenities at me, take a look at who is spouting the Racist Comments and ascribing to Racist positions.  It is not the Right, by and large, but the Left, almost totally.  President Trump’s approval rating among Blacks has soared to 36% which is unheard of for any Republican since possible Abraham Lincoln.  His support among Hispanics has climbed an impressive 10 percentage points since summer, even while he and his family have incurred some brutal and heartless criticism and accusations.  The problem for the Left is Trump’s sound economic policies that benefit EVERYONE are hard to tear apart and people on both sides of the aisle (the rank and file) are realizing this is GOOD and WANT MORE.

Also, if anyone still argues there is no Deep State and Political Swamp in America they are surely blind and incapable of cognitive thought, but some of those exist.  When we consider the incredible corruption and collusion by the loyalist to Hillary and the Democratic Party in the FBI, CIA, IRS, DOJ, and State Department we cannot ignore the reality of the Deep State’s existence.  Trump has stirred up that hornet’s nest and the Hornets are determined to sting him to death.  The Russian collusion fabrication is a fraud and farce, yet, Mueller and his team continue and will continue UNTIL they find something to discredit Trump or fabricate it or UNTIL the GOP develops enough spine or Jeff Sessions does his job and says ENOUGH of this madness.

America has been Great and can be Great again and even Greater than at any time in our history.  Donald Trump with all his bluster, bravado, flying thumbs, and shooting from the lip has been good for America economically.  He has been good for America regarding securing our borders and in our dealings with foreign governments.  He has been good for the cause of protecting our Freedoms and Liberties.  Is he flawless?  ABSOLUTELY NOT!  He is a flawed vessel but protecting our Freedoms, defending the Constitution, and restoring America to her rightful place in the world and making life better for all Americas is in his heart.  I believe that, even if you do not.  I believe that He loves America, unlike the most recent president who preceded him.

We have the choice of allowing America to fall into the hands of the Left who want to complete the task of ‘fundamental transformation’ or we can elect Republicans and prevent the Blue Wave and the Government takeover they desire.  I stand firmly on the side of Faith, Family, and Freedom and ask that you join those of us who have taken that stance.  REMEMBER NOVEMBER and make the wave RED not BLUE.

God bless you and God bless America!


BLOG POST 6 - Skunk

I never cease to be amazed at the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressive mindset in American politics.  I am daily appalled at the covert and overt attempts of those following the toxicity of liberalism in driving wedges between sectors of our society in order to gain an edge.  We have endured the “fair share” and “share the wealth” mantra, rhetoric, and diatribe for so long, most seem to accept it as normal rather.  America, “the rich” are not your enemy simply because they are rich, nor are they your friend based on that criterion.  If they are your enemy or your friend, it is because of who and what they are individually not as a class of people.  I, for one, am happy that we have a system of economics that enables people to become rich and even what some call ‘filthy rich.’  I am not one of those individuals monetarily but believe me I AM RICH.  I’m rich in my faith, my family, my friends, and my sense of self-esteem.  I have riches that NO ONE, no government or individual can strip from me.  You may impoverish me, restrict my freedom, and describe me in the basest of terms but you WILL NEVER take my Joy or my sense of Liberty and my Internal Riches.  But, that is another story for another time.

I have determined in my heart that the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives, especially the national Democrats, have never met a tax they did not like.  But, that would go with the ideological territory of ‘freebies’, ‘entitlements’, and the desire to ‘buy votes’ and ‘loyalty’ to their agenda and cause.  They must have MONEY and since the government does not make a dime the only money the politicians must use for their schemes is OUR MONEY and they acquire it via TAXATION, FINES, and LEVIES!  It has been so long since we had taxation with representation, I’m not sure it is even a possibility any longer.  We elect people who make promises to represent us in Washington only to find that they are more interested in their bottom line, cronyism, personal power, and becoming a lifetime member of the ‘ole boy network.’  I don’t know if they have secret classes on the process or not, but they all seem to be cut from the same cloth.

Something that smacked me in the face recently was the latest attempt of the Liberal Leftist to rebrand the so-called ‘Sin Taxes’ as ‘Health Taxes.’  WHAT IS THAT?  I laughed when they branded it a Tax on Sin but am completely perplexed by the new idea that it is a Tax on Health or a Tax to have Health.  Whichever descriptor they might mean and which goal they are aiming.  I doubt they know either.  I’m quite sure this is just another way to make the distasteful more palatable and their hope is that it will resonate with the voters and be embraced.  The taxes on alcoholic beverages (sin tax) is being rebranded as a health tax.  I’m not making this up.  This is the brain-child of Leftists such as New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, and other prominent Democrats.  They claim that higher taxes on alcohol, tobacco will reduce the consumption of those products.  SERIOUSLY?  No, the reality is that rather than reducing usage but creates a heavier burden on those on the lower end of the economic spectrum.

How many people do you know who drink, smoke, etc. that quit because of the higher rate of taxation?  I would venture very few if any.  Who do those taxes hurt?  Not the rich, they can afford to pay the tax.  It hurts the poor and tragically many of them provide a lower quality or quantity of food and medicine for themselves and their families in order to enable them to continue their consumption of the former items under the “Sin Tax” umbrella.  How is that a good thing?  Understand, I am not advocating for people to abuse alcohol or use products that are harmful to them physically.  The desired stigma of consuming a product subject to the “Sin Tax” never materialized and now to rebrand it as a “Health Tax” is ludicrous if not laughable.

What happens if you tax a product to the point that people have difficulty obtaining it?  In the case of alcohol, you brighten the prospects of “illegal booze” such as moonshine because it is “untaxed.”  The inherent dangers of the nectar of the moonshine are enormous.  Creating a Tax Structure that beckons “black markets” is economically negative.  I am convinced, and statistics will prove me right, that the worst abusers of alcohol, those who consume the most and inflict the most costs on society, are IMMUNE from Sin Taxes.  They don’t care!  They want what they want and will do whatever it takes to get it.  Rather than being promoted in the interest of health or a reduction in the consumption of those products, politicians have a propensity to determine the level of “Sin Taxes” or “Health Taxes” based on the size of the budgetary hole they wish to plug.

Those taxes have a price tag for society and government that the politicians cannot calculate and ignore.  The true cost of those taxes on society and the government are usually hidden by the politicians because revealing them would expose their hypocrisy.  I saw an illustration that is apropos.  If a man punches someone in the face and does serious bodily injury, the police will charge him with assault.  But if that same man had a couple of beers before the incident, it would be recorded by the police and media as an alcohol-related assault.  The question is, “did the two beers actually have any real bearing on the incident?”  Possibly but probably not.  However, it would allow the authorities to facilitate their argument to “Tax” consumption as a deterrent to violence, etc.

The government has a long history of trying to spin their confiscation of our money as being in our best interest and for our own good.  I wonder when they will decide we need to have our pay sent directly to them and they then dole out the portion they decide we need or deserve?  Taxation is, in the truest sense, is legal theft by government.  Is not our money, our property?  Is taking people’s property without their consent theft?  Before you argue that we agreed to the Income Tax via the Sixteenth Amendment.  It was adopted on February 3, 1913, and in my view is one of the worst amendments we have allowed to our American Constitution.  American history before Congress enacted the income tax in 1913 (first imposed the following year) demonstrates that the federal government was able to pay its bills, keep the nation largely out of debt, and respect the privacy of American citizens. Even during wartime, Congress had a method of imposing direct war taxes that respected states’ rights and American citizens’ privacy. I suggest you do a bit of study and see how we operated and I believe you just might realize that we were more efficient and honored the idea that ‘personal property’ was considered sacred to our founders and framers.  The Income Tax has allowed the government to expand its intrusion into our lives and control more and more of every segment of society.

 Sin or Health Taxes are simply extensions of the government’s insatiable thirst for OUR MONEY and thereby TOTAL CONTROL of our lives.  That is another reason that I VOTE NO on the Liberal Leftist in each election and will do so again in November 2018.  I ask that you consider joining me in sending a message to Washington – ENOUGH!

God bless you and God bless America!


BLOG POST 5 - Gun Control

I’ve said it before and I say it again, “The Objective, Agenda, and Plan of the Leftists Liberal Socialist Globalist Progressive Democrats is GUN CONFISCATION!”  They are smart enough to know that trying to use government, law enforcement, or even the military to go door-to-door in a massive confiscation effort would result in full-blown war.  Therefore, they are trying back-door tactics that the Media is not talking about, politicians are deaf, dumb, and mute, and few even know it is happening, but it is.

Have you heard of ‘Corporate Gun Control’?  Before, you blast me as a lunatic and conspiracist hear me out, research this for yourself and then present your arguments or take the appropriate action.  Hopefully, we can stir the pot for enough people that we will ensure the defeat of the Leftists this November but if not, then hopefully we can beat the drum loud enough that many will awaken before November 2020.  I sometimes feel like I’m shouting to myself in a closed room with no one around, but I keep trying because I consider the Second Amendment first in essentials for keeping all the Rights recognized by our American Constitution and Bill of Rights.  You can detest the current president to the point that you cede some of your inalienable rights, but that dog won’t hunt for me.  I make no argument that President Trump is a saint and without flaws, failures, and shortcoming.  His checkered history and membership in the ‘cut-throat’ business community and his moral failings may make him so undesirable and unacceptable to you that you cannot see the inherent dangers in allowing the Leftists to regain power, but I hope you stop and muse on the matter long enough to truly count the costs of your position and actions.  I ask nothing more of you.

Before I talk about what ‘Corporate Gun Control’ is and how it is currently and designed to operate let me say, this is another of the myriad of reasons we MUST HAVE conservative originalist on the Supreme Court.  I believe that confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the SCOTUS might well be a death blow to the draconian forms of ‘gun control’ proposed, designed, and desired by the Leftists.   If we can somehow increase the number of ‘red states’ and see state legislatures enact more uniform constitutional laws regarding ‘concealed’ and ‘constitutional’ carry of firearms as well as protecting our ‘right to keep and bear arms’ we can place another roadblock in the path of the diabolical plan to ‘rid America of guns’ as is the desire of the Left.

However, there is something happening outside of government that is possibly the most sinister we have witnessed and demonstrates the length those embracing toxic liberalism are willing to go.  What they are attempting, and proposing is cut from the same cloth as imposing their will regarding ‘climate change’ on businesses and individuals.  What is happening as a forerunner of a full-blown effort is seen in the banking and communication industries.  Citigroup took an action in March of 2018 that few even knew about and some might say, “Roy, this is benign, so don’t worry about it.”  What did they do?  They announced a new policy prohibiting the sale of firearms to customers who have not passed a background check or who are younger than 21.  It also bars the sale of bump stocks and high-capacity magazines.  What that means is their clients who offer credit cards backed by Citigroup or borrow money, use banking services or raise capital through the company MUST COMPLY with those demands.  They are telling business what they can and cannot do in order to get their money, use their credit services, etc.

Bank of America joined the attack on the so-called ‘assault weapons’ declaring that they will stop lending money to gun manufacturers that make ‘military-inspired’ firearms for civilian use, such as the AR-15-style rifles that have been used in some of the mass shootings.  Facebook has restricted any links to a website called codeisfreespeech.com, which contains downloadable plans for a number of entirely legal firearms, including the 3D-printable firearms at the heart of the Obama war with Cody Wilson.  YouTube has instituted its own restrictions and prohibits any content that “intends to sell” firearms. Reddit has banned certain gun forums.  But let’s not omit Amazon Web Services which has removed codeisfreespeech.com from its web servers and Shopify denies space for ‘the kind of products intended to harm.’

What they want to do is place such economic pressure on businesses large and small as to force them to comply with the Leftist Agenda of Gun Control.  Economics causes people to do things they would not otherwise do and even violate their principles and convictions.  However, I argue that if we allow the Leftists to regain control of Congress they will coerce those Liberal CEOs running the major banks, communications outlets, and other businesses to force the public into compliance allowing them to ‘restrict’ our ability to ‘keep and bear arms’ which is a forerunner to full-blown GUN BAN and GUN CONFISCATION. 

How many are aware of the effort in New York to force insurance companies to ‘blacklist the NRA?’  That is not fiction but fact.  We are all familiar with Dick’s Sporting Goods and the statement of their Chief Executive, Edward Stack regarding gun control.  He said, “This is an issue that is not going away, we need to take a stand.”  Walmart and Kroger followed his lead.  I agree with Rush Limbaugh that if ‘impeachment’ was to succeed and President Trump removed from office the Democrats would go full-bore into GUN CONFISCATION MODE.  Rush explained to a caller ‘Corporate Gun Control’ as “the leftists who run corporations, CEOs, the leftists who run the big banks and financial institutions are banding together to deny investment income, investment money, loans or whatever to anybody that has a gun, anybody that supports the Second Amendment.  They are seeking to impoverish the NRA or any individual devoted to the Second Amendment.”  Rush explained that private banks and the liberal CEOs are going to discriminate against everybody that is from a gun-rights organization or is a gun-rights individual.  If you own a gun or support gun-rights and go to a bank, you will be denied until you get rid of your gun.  Consider how that could play out for people in desperate financial situations and needing money for their business to survive!  Before you argue that they can’t do that consider who would be in control if the Leftists regain the House and Senate.  They can and will refuse to do business with anyone they choose, and nothing will be done about it.  They can refuse to hire you, lend you money, or make life miserable for you if they choose and choose they will.

America, if you believe you have certain inalienable rights that come from God and you want to keep them then it is IMPERATIVE that you join those of us diligently and devotedly working to STOP THE LEFTIST in November at every level of Government from Dog Catcher to President.  REMEMBER IN NOVEMBER and VOTE NO on the Liberal Leftist Democrats!

God bless you and God bless America!

PROJECTIONISM – Political Tactic of Obama and Clinton and It Failed and Fails…

BLOG POST 1 - Projectionism

Recently former President Barack Hussein Obama gave a speech at the University of Illinois and demonstrated his narcissism, nihilism, egomania, and demagoguery.  Yes, I said it and I stand by that assertion.  His speech while calling for civility and a move away from divisiveness was laced with vitriolic hateful language, innuendos, and accusations directed toward President Trump and those of us who voted for him.  Hillary called us DEPLORABLE and he has often referred to us as BITTER CLINGERS, clinging to our Bibles and our Guns.  He is angry, not because he believes that Donald Trump is necessarily doing harm to America but because Donald Trump is shredding his legacy.  Obama envisioned his legacy as the savior of the world but has been and is being exposed as the troubler of America and in that, the world.

He said that November’s elections are the most important in history, and for once I totally agree with him, but for different reasons.  He also said, the consequences of us sitting on the sidelines is direr than ever, and again I agree with him.  Wow, two things in one speech I agree with Barack Obama on.  He could not restrain himself and seems to have forgotten that during his presidency, he and the left insisted that we respect the Office of President and their insistence included showing respect to the President.  He told those students and the world watching by television or replays of his speech, that the dark days in our history did not begin with Donald Trump.  He called the President a symptom, not the cause.  Imagine that!  That language coming from the man who sought to ‘fundamentally transform’ America and threatened Congress at every turn with his ‘pen and phone’.  The man that used Executive fiats to govern rather than following the constitutional process of legislation through Congress.  The man that sought to divide this nation along racial lines, and often pitted blacks against the police, and other things of that nature.

Mr. Obama accused Donald Trump of capitalizing on resentments that politicians have been fanning for years!  AMAZING!  The man that followed the philosophy of not letting a crisis go to waste and played the race card so often it seemed it was his only card.  He tried to take credit for the economic recovery we are experiencing, saying, “I’m glad it has continued.”  Seriously, CONTINUED?  It never began under your administration, so how did it continue?  It began once your policies were rejected and American business and American people to once again pursue the American Dream without the heavy weight of unneeded and undue government interference and restrictions.  CONTINUED?  Sorry, but you fail on that argument.  He argued that his administration could not reverse 40-year trends in just 8 years but failed to acknowledge that President Trump’s administration has largely done that in less than 2-years.

He made the snide comment in an accusation that the Republicans and Donald Trump were appealing to “the tribe” as if that is not exactly the tactic of the Democrats.  Projectionism on full display!  He takes what he and they are and projects it upon his opponents.  It failed for Hillary and I pray that it will fail for Obama as well.  His claim that Congress or the Republican-led Congress has championed the unwinding of campaign finance laws to give billionaires outsized influence over our politics while systematically attacking voting rights making it harder for the young, minorities, and the poor to vote.  THAT IS A BLATANT LIE and he knows it.  Voter ID does not restrict because anyone can get a voter identification card FREE.  He knows that what that does is help ensure that our elections are legitimate and not skewed by voter fraud.  Why is that a problem?  It seems to be a major problem for the Democrats because they need some fictional cause to rally support and engender the mindset of victimhood in people.  Also, those committing voter fraud, have been far more Democrat than Republican.  Maybe that is the real issue.

He used the tired argument that with Republicans in control of Congress and a Republican in the White House there are no checks and balances.  Does anybody remember how he vociferously argued for the voters to keep Congress and the White House in the hands of the Democrats?  I find it interesting, no hypocritical, that he would now argue for a return of Democrats to control Congress so long as Trump is president.  He even argued that people are tired of ‘toxic corruption’ meaning Republicans.  What about Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the IRS targeting conservatives, the FBI and DOJ hiding the scandals and illegalities of Hillary and other Democrats?  What about the releasing high-ranking Taliban leaders for a deserter? What about illegally and unconstitutionally sending billions to Iran and the Nuke Deal with that hater of America?  What about so many other items of corruption within your party and your administration sir?  REPUBLICANS CORRUPT?  I won’t argue that many are not, but to try to project the moniker of corruption on the Republicans and award sainthood to the Democrats would be laughable if it were not so serious and dangerous.

He said, that he complained plenty about Fox News but never called for them to be shut down.  Mr. Obama, how about your attempt and plea to SHUT RUSH LIMBAUGH DOWN and your effort to destroy him through advertisers?  Sir, you are again taking what you are and attempting to project it on your enemies.  His inference that Republicans and Trump are Nazi sympathizers makes my blood boil.  However, he makes no mention of his support of ANTIFA and other radical leftist groups that destroy public property, attempt to stop commerce and shut down businesses.  He makes no mention of instructing or agreeing with Eric Holder to refuse to prosecute members of the New Black Panthers who sought to intimate voters to keep them from voting.  PROJECTIONISM on display again!

He said, “We won’t win people over by calling them names, or dismissing entire chunks of the country as racist, or sexist, or homophobic.” What do the Democrats do? He chided Republicans for calling for ‘civility’ on the heels of his saying we needed that and then he justified the riots and demonstrations as being patriotic.  He said to be silent when something is said or done that seems outrageous, they must do something because to fail to do so would not be civility but an abdication of responsibilities.  What did he do then, he played the race card again talking about how blacks had difficulty succeeding in WHITE RURAL AMERICA.  This man has demonstrated his disdain for those not of his ethnicity, although he is half-white, his own writings reveal his rejection of any whiteness which is reflected in his rhetoric and policies.  He mentioned promises of simple solutions to fix problems as being a tactic of Republicans and yet he was the one that gave us the simple promise of Fixing Healthcare via Obamacare.  His Promise to fix something that resulted in destroying our healthcare system.

He continued his rant by trashing Republicans, and those who support Donald Trump.  His call to move away from that kind of rhetoric was replaced with his doing exactly what he accused Republicans of doing.  He decried the use of fear-mongering and engaged in it.  He decried using race as a platform and used it.  He decried being divisive and then became divisive.  He said some things that were 70% truth and 30% distortions and that 30% so outweighed the 70% it was terrifying.  Terrifying should the followers of liberalism and the Kool-Aid drinkers at the trough of Socialism and Progressivism believe it, and they do.

AMERICA, this election in November IS the most important we have ever faced.  PLEASE, do not allow apathy or complacency prevent you from going to the polls and vote.  If you desire Freedom and Liberty and the Constitutional Republic to be just that VOTE and Vote to prevent the Democrats from regaining control of Congress.

God bless you and God bless America!        


BLOG POST 4 - Forgive Them

Those words of Jesus, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing” are germane to today’s Democratic Party and their nonsensical pursuit of Socialism, Open Borders, Abortion on Demand, and shredding the Constitution.  I cannot believe they truly understand the “can of worms” and the “demons” they are unleashing in their pursuit, so I pray that prayer.  However, if they know and are doing it willfully and intentionally I have a different prayer as identified in Romans 16:20.  I pray, “Lord, our God of Peace, please crush Satan under your feet and do it quickly.”

Some time back, a member of the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) wrote an article for VOX explaining the movement’s objectives which included ENDING CAPITALISM and BRINGING ABOUT RADICAL CHANGE TO AMERICA.  An extension of Barack Obama’s desire to “fundamentally transform” this Republic into something other than the Constitutional Republic established by our Founders and Framers.  That article and declaration, in normal times, would not elicit much notice coming from a fringe party, but in today’s political climate, it demands notice.  WHY?  Because people within the Democratic circle including Bernie Sanders, and their new proclaimed face of the party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez touting the virtues of Socialism it bears watching.  Include in that number the DNC announcing that Ocasio-Cortez is the new face of the party, it bears watching.  Polls have been released that indicate that 57% of Democrats prefer Socialism to Free Market Capitalism yet only a smidgen of them can define either, it makes it important to note.

Bernie Sander’s brand of Socialism in 2016 caused me to take note of the incredible support he received from Democrats across the board and had it not been for the corruption of the DNC and the Clinton campaign he might have won the nomination and possibly the election.  THAT MAKES IT SIGNIFICANT and worthy of watching.  The VOX article was a ‘manifesto’ of sorts for the Socialist and is being embraced by the Democrats on a national level.  Megan Day, a member of the DSA took exception to the MSM attempting to identify the Democratic Socialism as simply a rebranding of New Deal Liberalism.  She openly declared that unlike the New Deal Liberalism the Socialist want to END CAPITALISM!  She stated, “Social democratic reforms like Medicare-for-all are, in the eyes of DSA, part of the long, uneven process of building that support, and eventually overthrowing capitalism.”  WOW!  No more hiding, I guess, and we will see how this plays out in November and beyond.  I pray that America will reject Socialism regardless of what package it is wrapped in and recognize the inherent dangers and failures of that product.

Ocasio-Cortez expressed an amazingly illogical and dangerous ideology, “capitalism has not always existed in the world, and it will not always exist in the world.”  In their attempt to win acceptance of Socialism, Sanders, Day, and Ocasio-Cortez must use the tactic that engenders them to basic human greed and envy Redistribution of Wealth.  They have for a very long time, attempted to paint anyone with money as being inherently evil, uncaring, and failing to pay their ‘fair share.’  They ignore the reality that those at the upper echelon of the tax bracket pay the lion’s share of all taxes and are the providers of jobs for those on the lower end of the spectrum.  The idea that someone will “take from the rich and give to the poor”, a Robin Hood of sorts, appeals to human greed, envy, laziness, and a sense of entitlement.

Not only do the Socialist and many of the Leftist Democrats want to end Capitalism they have little regard for our American Republican System of Government or any Democracy for that matter.  In fact, there are hints from this bunch that they are going to drop “democratic” from their name and simply be known as Socialist or American Socialist.  Ms. Day, is a writer for the New York-based Socialist magazine called “Jacobin”.  Why is that significant?  The Jacobins were the most violent and radical political group of the French Revolution.  They were led by Maximilien Robespierre and executed anyone their so-called Committee of Public Safety deemed insufficiently loyal.  HOW DOES THAT GRAB YOU?  I hope it grabs you by the neck, shakes you and causes you to wake up and say NO, NO, NO!

History indicates that almost 40,000 people were killed by these self-proclaimed enforces of societal safety.  They purged those who disagreed with them or posed a threat.  I hope that is sounding eerily familiar and you connect some dots as to what is transpiring, or the groundwork is being laid.  The play, “Dialogues of the Carmelites” is a moving true story of the Carmelite nuns who refused to denounce Christ at the peak of the Reign of Terror. The French Revolution was essentially anti-Catholic and many churches were closed and reopened as “Temples of Reason” presenting the Jacobin propaganda.  The nuns were beheaded and just before the guillotine dropped, they displayed the power of God’s love by singing hymns and renewing their vows.  I am not Catholic but am moved by anyone naming the name of Christ demonstrating that resolve, faith, and commitment.  Another account in Christopher Hibbert’s “The French Revolution” the Jacobins charged a woman with the heinous crime of weeping at her husband’s execution and was forced to lay several hours with the blade of the guillotine suspended over her dropping her husband’s blood on her before they killed her.

History records that the Jacobins eventually turned on their leader, Robespierre and executed him.  I guess it is possible that this tyrannical despotic group known as the DSA with followers such as Bernie Sanders, Margaret Day, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and Keith Ellison might find they implode as the pressure to fulfill their promises caves in on them like an old mine shaft.  All, I can say for certain is that if America is so foolish, misguided, ignorant, and/or greedy as to elect Socialist to Congress or the White House, we deserve what we get.  NO, I will never vote for them and pray that you will not either.  However, if the Never Trump Crowd, and the Republicans that choose to stay home because they don’t like the candidate or Trump succeed in their efforts allowing the Leftist to reclaim power, we just might get that very thing.  Hate me if you please.  Call me any name that you find in your vocabulary, but know please THINK ABOUT IT.  Consider the Cost of Withholding your Vote and by that action allowing the Leftists to regain control.  My prayer is simple – WAKE UP AMERICA!  My hope is clear – A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE GOVERNMENT where the Rule of Law is followed, and the Constitution kept intact.

May God bless you and God bless America!
