It is my view and that of many others that America is in dire straits and we need to ‘reclaim’ our Freedom and our Land.  There is a biblical principle involved and as we wade through this, I will attempt to identify several things.  I hope to identify our condition, how or why we got in this mess, and what, if anything, we can do to rectify it. 

If you do not agree that we need ‘restoration’ then what I have to say will not resonate with you.  However, if you see, what many of us see, and realize that our liberties and freedoms are being systematically stripped from us and our moral moorings as a nation has drifted, it may.  If you are interested in seeing America restored to our foundational base and be the Republic our Founders envisioned, then I invite you to take this journey with me.

I do not believe we can achieve or receive the ‘fullness’ our Founders envisioned, and God desires individually or nationally UNTIL we have followed His directives and place ourselves in ‘right standing’ with Him, His Word, each other, and the Constitution.  I believe strongly in a biblical principle that ‘preparation always precedes blessing.’

In 2 Kings 3:16, we see the prophet Elisha’s instruction for King Jehoshaphat as they prepared for battle with Moab.  He said, “make this valley full of ditches.”  Israel complied and the next morning they realized that water had filled the ditches.  Moab awoke and the glistening of the morning sun made the water appear as blood and they assumed that Israel had turned on each other and ran to the battlefield to collect the spoils of victory.  The result was a complete slaughter of Moab and a victory for Israel.  I use this example to demonstrate that when we do what God says, He provides.

Another example is in 2 Kings 4 where the poor widow was instructed by the prophet to borrow vessels.  She filled the house with borrowed utensils and the prophet poured them full UNTIL there were no more vessels to fill.  The only limitation to her miracle was the number of vessels.  Her obedience or preparation enabled the man of God and God to do a miracle.  God will never go beyond our capacity or our obedience. 

In Matthew 12, Jesus identified some of the evidence of God’s Kingdom and Restoration, which can be applied to America and the restoration of our Freedoms and Liberties.  He called them ‘works.’  He included the casting out of demons (trespassers on the promise), healing the sick, and provided the reality that IF we follow God’s directives and seek to be realigned with His principles, purposes, and person, He will fulfill His promises. 

Our founding fathers believed that America came into existence because of the providence of God.  Today’s America believes we became what we became through our own strength and ability.  Some believe we achieved greatness as a nation on the backs of the less fortunate and our beginning was corrupt and must be atoned for and transformed.  I believe that even with our errors and sins in our beginning we originated for God’s purposes to be a catalyst to advance the Kingdom of God on this earth. 

In Matthew 12:25 our LORD declares something that is incredibly important spiritually, personally, and nationally.  He said, “Any kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.”  We are divided in America beyond anything I ever envisioned could become a reality.  The hate and vitriol that is hurled about vehemently is eroding the foundation of our Republic and will be our destruction if not quelled.

We have generational hate being perpetuated.  We have the systematic engendering of a brand of hate that hides cloaked of ‘principle’ and justifies itself by attacking everyone and everything that disagrees.  There are those who believe they are constitutionalist and even conservative political idealists that have allowed personal animus toward particular candidates to cause them to join forces with those who would otherwise be deemed, enemies.  I guess the philosophy “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” is applicable.  The result is division, estrangement, and the erosion of many freedoms and liberties.  The result will be the destruction of the Republic.

In Matthew 12:29, the Lord Jesus brought to light a reality that could easily be applied to our American predicament.  Jesus identified the strongman and in Luke 11 He expands that and identifies that this ‘strongman’ is fully armed.  The defeat of that strongman requires one that is stronger to come in, disarm him, and reclaim what has been taken.  In America, the nefarious seekers of ‘fundamental transformation’ have divided us and weakened the fabric of our republic.  They have pitted us against each other when the objective of many on both sides of the equation is the best good for America. 

The problem lies in not understanding the end result.  The problem lies in forgetting how we came into being and distorting the intent of our Founders as declared in the Declaration of Independence.  We have lost sight of our Creator, His Holiness, His Provisions for us and become selfish and self-centered.  In many cases, we have lost sight of America and only viewed politics through the prism of our bias and personal ambitions.

Our Founding Fathers declared that they believed in self-evident truths.  Today’s academia and some political ideologues do not believe in ‘self-evident truth.’  They do not believe in a Creator.  When we eliminate the Creator, we also render ineffective, if not null and void, the idea of inalienable rights.  I had a person that does not believe in God insist that they believe in inalienable rights.  I asked, “Where did those rights originate?”  He could not answer other than affirming that he believed they were either product of man’s desire or the gift of the government.  Yet, he claimed to believe in limited government, the constitution, and conservativism.  I am unable to connect those dots because, as our Founders declared, ‘these rights are endowed by the Creator upon man.’

I believe that God enabled America to become a Free Republic for a purpose. That purpose extends far beyond us being personally or nationally prosperous.  If that were the purpose for our existence then we become prime candidates for greed, envy, covetousness, jealousy, ambition, and hate to prevail and destroy us.  If there is not a moral framework and mooring to which we attach our reason for existence, we will not seek the best good of everyone but our own interests.  I have heard all my life, “You have to look out for number one because no one else will.”  That is antithetical to the teachings of Jesus and contrary to the declarations of our Constitution, our Declaration of Independence, and the writings of our Founding Fathers. 

They believed that among those endowed rights was the Right to Life.  What is Life?  That would take a book to detail, but it is more than just breathing.  It is more than possessions.  It is the ability to pursue your purpose without undue restriction and regulation by a centralized power structure that seeks to dominate. 

There was also the right to Liberty.  What is Liberty?  It is more than not being in jail, prison, or chains.  The word carries the idea of Freedom and that freedom must begin on the inside.  If I am Free on the Inside, then even if I were in chains, I remain Free.  Government cannot give me that, it comes as an endowment of our Creator. 

Then, the right to Pursue Happiness.  What is Happiness?  I contend you cannot have that quality of life unless you are allowed to live free.

I have talked about the vision of the Founders and even identified some of our conditions in the loss of liberty and freedom.  However, I have not begun to address the How, the Why, and the Remedy.

I believe those things can be capsuled in the reality that we have been deceived into believing that a benevolent elitist governmental hierarchy can provide those things for us or are charged with doing so.  Ignorance is the first step toward enslavement politically and we have become ignorant of the devices of the devil politically.  We have allowed the politicians to watch over the matters of government without giving the constitutionally mandated oversight.  Our ignorance as to what they have and are doing, coupled with our being ignorant of our authority and power has enabled the devious to become a ‘strongman’ taking over our house (America).

We can see Restoration, but only if we return to the moral moorings of our beginning.  We can see Restoration, but only if we invest ourselves in the oversight of government and cease allowing the politicians to manage the politics of the nation at their discretion.  We can see Restoration if we stop allowing the desired division promoted by the devious to thrive.  If a restored America is our desire, then we need to take note of all politicians and parties that seek to weaken our Constitution, infringe upon our inalienable rights, and force us to comply with edicts that violate our conscience, conviction, and faith.

I believe that all who believe in God must become intercessors and as intercessors do the following:  Repent for our own sins and failures.  Repent for the sins of the nation.  Recognize what Jesus did for us at Calvary.  Recognize that the devil wants America destroyed.  Recognize that the devil has no power over us or America UNLESS he finds some legal ground within which he can operate.  Therefore, Repentance is Required, even if we are not personally guilty of those sins that give the enemy of Freedom opportunity.

I see a deeply divided and troubled America and that causes me great sadness and concern.  I know in my heart of hearts that if we continue this hate-filled decline into degeneracy and division we will witness the end of the Republic.  I believe that to support an ideology, candidate, or political agenda that weakens our moral moorings infringes upon our liberties and rights, and denies the right to Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness is to abet and enable our own destruction. 

Therefore, I ask that you consider becoming an intercessor and pray for America.  I ask that you become involved in the process.  I ask that you carefully consider every candidate, and governmental proposal considering how it affects our Freedom, Liberty, and the ability to pursue Happiness.  Then, VOTE!

God bless you and God bless America!


I am not attempting to discount and diss the concerns and plight that has been felt by various sectors of our society.  I am not diminishing the concern that there is racism living and breathing in America.  That would be foolish.  No, it would be incredibly deceptive and ignorant of reality. 

I contend that a few bad apples does not make the apple tree bad of the apple barrel bad, it makes the bad apples bad.  If you had a toe with gangrene and in need of amputation would you cut off the entire leg?  Would you believe the doctor justified in injecting you with a death serum because your toe was bad?  No, you would want to deal with the problem and go no farther than the problem.  Well, I would hope that is what you would do, but in light of what is happening today, I wonder!

When I listen to the narrative being advanced by the media and the incredible hate and vitriol being hurled at those of us who are white, I am shaken to my core.  It makes me wonder if we have become so infected and infested with hate, generational hate, and a victim mentality that we can never recover.  I pray that is not the case, but with each new outbreak of ‘protests’ that become or began as ‘riots’ I wonder.

I briefly listened to two black men on Sean Hannity’s show, some time back, and was stunned at the hate and uncontrollable anger spewing forth from professor Cornel West of Princeton University.  He called the other black man names and his face and eyes were so fixated with hate that he was beside himself.  He kept talking over everyone and insisting that he was not being respected, but he disrespected those with opposing views in an uncontrollable rage.

What is frightening is that this man teaches in one of our renowned universities. What is he teaching and how is what he is teaching bridging the gap and not inciting more violence?  I was deeply saddened as I listened and watched. I prayed for him.  Don’t accuse me of being self-righteous, I was genuinely concerned for his soul and the future of America and the lives that can be destroyed by his anger.  That goes for all sides of the issue.  Hate is never the answer.  Violence is not the pathway to peace.  Innocent people are not your enemy.

It is troubling to hear leading Democrats, and some on social media voice their hatred for President Trump so vehemently they justify violence, lawlessness, criminal activity, and murder as justified. They argue that because, “Trump is a Dictator and a Tyrant,” they are justified. They have no verifiable examples to support those charges and ignore the fact that he has done more for the black community and virtually all communities than any president in modern history.  They ignore the fact that shining through his crustiness and crudeness is a heart that loves America and wants the Constitution followed.  He makes mistakes in words and even actions, but at the end of the day, the body of work has been in America’s best interest.

If I listen to the media and those engaging in the violence, riots, and mayhem I realize that they consider all of us that are white and not liberal leftists the root cause of the problem.  In their minds, we are their justification for total chaos and anarchy.  In their minds, we deserve it and our perpetual sin against them is reason enough for them to destroy, loot, kill, and destroy.  If we protest that we are not their enemy then we are deemed racist, xenophobic, bigoted, and living in our ivory towers of ‘white privilege.’  We are their ticket to exoneration and exemption from being held accountable.  They are the Victims and we are the ones who Victimized them. 

Let me insert, being victimized should not create a victim mentality in anyone. Becoming a Victim is a choice. It is an internalizing that strips the individual of the power to rise above the event or events and survive and thrive.  It robs the individual of peace and the thirst for vengeance becomes so prolific in the heart that the insatiable drive and desire for a ‘pound of flesh’ demands violence.  Sadly, those who get their ‘pound of flesh’ are never satisfied and the hole in the heart is not healed.  That leads to more violence and a perpetual blaming of others for the condition and problems they face. That is never the pathway to Life, Liberty, and Happiness.  It is the pathway to a Prison of Pain in the heart and mind that renders the person incapable of enjoying life.

The insistence that the rioters are angry because of justifiable grievances against and those of us who are not of their skin color, ethnicity, religion, or political party is destructive.  If there was truly ‘systemic racism’ in the police or America it would demand amelioration, but it is not the truth.  Statistics do not support the charge.

When I consider the violence that has escalated in the cities where the most prolific attempts to appease the ‘protesters’ have occurred, I wonder if this was about George Floyd or not.  No, I don’t wonder, I think I know that it was for some, but not for those orchestrating the violence and many participating.  When a man like the black 77-year old retired police captain David Dorn was murdered by the protesters as he sought to protect a pawn shop it screams that all lives do not matter and even some black lives do not matter to these ‘protesters and instigators.’  When the murder rates in Chicago, Los Angeles, and other cities escalates and black on black crime takes dozens of lives but there is no mention of them, then I ask, “Do those Black Lives Matter?”

When I examine history and view the data available, I discover that between 1979 and 2014 blacks killed 324,000 other blacks in violent crime. That causes me to realize this is not about Life but a desire for vengeance.  It becomes an excuse to ignore the law, ignore the property of the dozens if not hundreds of black businesses that have been destroyed as well as those of whites and other ethnicities, I realize this is not about ‘systemic racism’ but ‘hate.’  It is an excuse to commit terrorism and seek to ‘take over’ the nation.

That’s what Islam desires and now we are fighting a war on multiple fronts within our borders and the politicians are using it as a tool to advance their agenda and hoping it will propel them into power.  America, we are destroying ourselves with hate and that is not a one-sided issue but one that must be addressed and stopped.

America’s first war (as a nation) was with African Muslims who were raiding American vessels and enslaving the occupants.  Thomas Jefferson and John Adams asked the Muslim ambassador what ‘injury’ the fledgling American state could possibly have committed to provoke such acts the response was telling.  Jefferson said, “The ambassador said that the attacks were founded on the laws of their prophet, that was written in their Koran that it was their right and duty to make war upon non-Muslims wherever they could be found and to make slaves of all.” 

It would behoove us to remember that ISIS, in modern times, has been careful to tell the world that they are attacking and hate the West first and foremost because Islamic law requires them to do so.  They do not care about our behavior it is their perceived mandate from Allah. 

The demands for reparations for slavery are ludicrous and beyond the realm of possibility fiscally. It is irresponsible and drives a wedge between us that continues to separate, divide, and engender distrust and hate.  There is an answer and I keep referring to it.  That answer in a word is GOD!  If we love God with all our hearts, we can love our neighbor as ourselves.  If we sin against our brother, we need to go to our brother and seek forgiveness. 

There are bad police officers. They need to be rooted out, but they are not all white.  There are bad politicians that need to be rooted out and they are not all Democrats or Republicans. There are bad people in society, and they must be held accountable for their behavior and actions.  If you are white or non-white, I am not your enemy, I am a fellow member of the human race.  We can overcome this blight but not if we allow hate to prevail.  If we allow ourselves to become Victims in our Minds, we will imprison ourselves and destroy this nation and freedom. 

Love me or hate me, that is your choice, but please, please, please, stop hating because someone does not look or think like you. 

God bless you and God bless America!


Today, I write in the midst of turmoil, hate, confusion, and destruction and weep.  I weep because, in my view, many have lost the view of the preciousness of life.  Too many seem to be focused on themselves, their causes, their wounds, hurts, bitterness, anger, resentment, and desires rather than LIFE. 

We live in a world filled with hate and hate is, in today’s climate, more visible than love.  That is a tragedy of tragedies.  In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic, paranoia, fear, and economic destruction in its wake, life goes on.  In a time of anarchy, violence, riots, mayhem, and destruction, life goes on.  However, because of external stimuli, many have lost God’s intended view of the preciousness of life.  That makes me sad and causes me to weep.

In the middle of all of this, my family has been brought face to face with our own mortality and in that realization, we have developed a new sense of the preciousness of life.  My wife’s battle with Stage Four Metastatic Breast Cancer we have renewed our desire and drive to savor every moment of life and live it to the fullest possible.  In that, there is no time for hate, envy, greed, avarice, or a desire to exact vengeance on anyone.  That will not make our lives better.  That will not extend our lives one second and possibly could end it prematurely. 

I see the riots in the streets over the claim of Institutional Racism in the Police and the argument that the condition is systemic and universal.  However, real statistics make that argument difficult to sustain.  Factual, statistical data from reliable sources indicate that the claim that a black man is 2 ½ times more likely to be shot by the police than a white man is not true.  Candace Owens reported a staggering statistic that debunks that claim.  The percentage of people killed by the police annually are whites (55%), blacks (27%,), and Hispanics (19%).  That makes Institutional Racism a difficult position to defend.

The Bureau of Justice Statistics, National Crime Victimization Survey, 2018 (Table 14) reported interracial violent crime incidents in 2018.  The numbers were staggering and should trouble everyone, but not in the way the current spin is being presented.  The data indicated that the number of incidences of black on white crime (547,948), black on Hispanic (112,365), white on black (59,772), white on Hispanic (207,104), Hispanic on white (365,299) and Hispanic on black (44,551).  That suggests the rhetoric and spin is factually inaccurate and screams of a problem that is not racial but a mindset and a heart condition.

When I read of the 61 million unborn that has been aborted, I weep and ask, “Did their lives matter?”  When I read of events like George Floyd’s death, I weep and ask, “Does life matter anymore to anyone?”  When I read of the rioters killing innocent civilians in their ‘protest’ of the wrongful death of Mr. Floyd and the aftermath, I weep and ask, “Does life matter anymore?” 

When we value life and embrace the preciousness of it, we live differently, treat others differently, and view each day as a gift.  There are problems in our American society and riots won’t cure them.  There are problems in America and attacking the police or other institutions won’t cure them.  There are problems in our world and hate only exacerbates them it never resolves them.

We are all creations of God and all our lives are valuable.  They are valuable to God and because we are God’s creations and been granted the gift of life, they should be valuable and precious to us. 

Elections matter in the sense they give power to politicians who enact laws that shape our future as a republic.  They matter because they give power to politicians who either protect our liberties or seek to restrict and infringe upon them.  Elections matter, because we are a Republic and those elected are supposed to be our Representatives.  They are people to whom we have consented to govern and if they fail to govern morally, righteously, constitutionally, ethically, and legally we are obligated to vote them out of office in the next election.  Elections matter because Freedom is priceless, and Life is precious. 

Those who insist that these riots and exhibitions of anarchy are necessary to battle the Institutional Racism in America I ask several questions.  First, how does taking the lives of innocent people, destroying property and thereby lives, and looting rectify the wrong you are protesting?  It makes you what you are supposedly protesting.  If there is Institutional Racism in the police how do those protesting and making that argument address the cities where the mayors, city councils, and police departments are headed by black men and women?  Are they racists against blacks?  The problem is not skin color, the problem is the heart, the mind, the attitude.

Too many have been taught to fear and hate.  Have there and are there injustices?  Absolutely.  Can we resolve them?  Yes, but not in the manner we are pursuing it today.  I am a Christian and unashamedly declare that only God can change the heart and until we have a heart change and begin to view life as precious will we see a change in the culture of this nation.

Love me or hate me, that is your choice, but I ask everyone to look deep inside your heart and ask yourself, “Is My Life Precious?”  If you answer yes, and hopefully you will then ask, “Are not all Lives Precious?”  If we adopt that view and realize that we all can trace our ancestry to Adam in the Garden of Eden and certainly to Noah then we will see a change in our interpersonal, international, and interracial dealings.  It is our choice and we need God’s help.

God bless you and God bless America!


No, I am not a defeatist and no, I do not believe America is hopelessly lost, but I do see a clear and present danger that could become the fulfillment of my title question.  The battle for Freedom and America cannot be won solely on the political battlefield.  You may vehemently disagree, and I will attempt to articulate my reasons for that stance.  There is a way to win and, in my view, only one way to win.

Life is too short to spend unhappy and filled with hate or the erroneous belief that we are the any one person is responsible for how everyone else thinks, acts, or believes.  That seems to be the view of the incredibly unhappy leftists of today, largely in the Democratic Party.  There are PC activists who appear fully convinced that, in order to save humanity, they must transform the thinking and living of everyone.  They are miserably unhappy with their lives, largely due to their ideological beliefs, and their agenda, if realized will make everyone else miserable too.  I guess the old saying is correct, “misery loves company.”

I can honestly say today, I do not hate anyone.  I don’t know that I could have honestly said that a few years ago, a few months, weeks, or possibly even a few days ago.  I have stood before the Throne of God in Prayer and confessed my animus and animosity and asked forgiveness.  As I asked the LORD to unpack any hate in my heart, He obliged far beyond any expectation and I wept, knowing I was guilty.  I didn’t think I hat hate in my heart.  I excused my disgust as being righteous indignation not hate.  I justified my dislike and argued that it did not rise to the level of hate.  The Holy Spirit seemed to disagree and now that I have laid it on the altar, I do not want to pick it back up.

Hate is ripping our nation to shreds.  Hate is dividing families and estranging longtime friends.  Hate is creating an impasse in Congress and impeding our progress as a Republic.  Hate is drawing us back to positions and conditions that we had made great strides to overcome in almost every sector of society.  Hate is not exclusive to one ideological position or political party.  Hate is not exclusive to one religious sect or one sector of the country.  It has become pervasive and although denied, it is real.

If we continue fighting the Battle for the Republic on the political battlefield, the battle is already lost.  What is happening in America is no longer Republican vs Democrat, Conservative vs Liberal, or even Capitalism vs Socialism.  The battle is truly Good vs Evil but saying that sounds as though we are saying the Republicans, Conservatives, and Capitalists are all good and everyone else is evil.  If that is our view we are dangerously near the abyss of hate and destruction.  Each side in this political war seems to believe they are purists and holy and the other side corrupt and unholy.  That creates an impasse that politics cannot cure.

In my conversations with some devoted followers of the current liberal ideological agenda, I have discovered they are deeply troubled, filled with anger, and incredibly unhappy.  You may be one of the followers of that ideological tenet and take exception to my statement.  I don’t know every liberal so I cannot make a blanket statement that is one-size-fits-all.  I can only address those I talk to and those I see and hear on the national stage.  The deep resentment for this country’s founding is astounding to this American. 

Many on the Left express their enmity for our heritage.  They have been taught by professors and others who believe that our founding was immoral, and we unjustly created this Republic.  They do not believe in American exceptionalism and agree with Barack Obama that it does not exist or exists only at the expense of the rest of the world.  They want to create a Utopian world where everyone has the same success earned or unearned.  They want to create a world where we become a cookie-cutter version of humanity and mindlessly follow the politically correct code.  They demand fairness without realizing how unfair their demands are for those who invest themselves to achieve.  They are miserable and driven to make everyone else conform to their ideological views.

I have heard the many disparaging labels used by both sides in today’s political squabbles. Derogatory names are hurled about while claiming to be on the side of right and the civil ones in this battle.  Name-calling usually reveals something in the heart that is far from righteous and is birthed from deep animosity that borders on if it is not full-blown hatred.  I try to refrain from using the most-vile of those terms because I do not see them as productive and affording any hope of finding common ground for the good of America.

Nancy Pelosi, in announcing that there would be a vote on Impeachment said, “We have been working on this 2 ½ years.”  The unfortunate truth is that the crime they accuse the president of committing occurred in July of 2019, namely the Ukraine phone call.  Yes, they accused him of working with a foreign nation to steal the 2016 election but that fell apart almost from the beginning.  Their focus then became Ukraine and that was the basis of their Impeachment Articles passed in a completely partisan vote in the House.  Was her admission a Freudian slip?  Regardless it made their actions even more transparent. 

America has suffered unnecessarily over the past 3 years, as the Left has belched forth incredible vitriol and tirelessly sought to oust and destroy this president.  If we were not divided by hate, both sides could have worked to achieve much good for the American people in this booming economy and improving international conditions.  That has not been the case and it has become totally partisan politics.  If we cannot see how that fails and realize that fighting this fight strictly politically will result in defeat for both sides, we are not being observant.

I am unashamedly a Christian.  I believe that the only solution to the divide in America is for this nation and we Americans to reaffirm the truths upon which our Republic was founded.  Our founders were not necessarily pious men or even deeply religious, but our Constitution was clearly influenced by the teaching of the Bible and God’s moral law.  They believed that everyone has the Right to Life and the right to live that life without undue government influence, regulations, and restrictions.  They believed that every person should be allowed to enjoy Liberty and Freedom and pursue Happiness. 

Pursue Happiness?  I meet so few today among those who espouse the liberal ideological philosophy of today that are happy and find it difficult to believe they are pursuing happiness.  When I am miserable, I tend to think that everyone else is too and find it difficult to see that I might be quite alone in my morass of depression.  It is when I look beyond myself, looking upward and outward that I realize that I too can find hope and happiness.

America if we are going to win this war we must look inward and address the condition of our own hearts.  We must return to God and accept the reality that everyone does not think the same, live the same, believe the same, or want the same things.  We can disagree without destroying those who disagree.  In a sense, it is “live and let live.”

I am praying for America and praying that we will awaken, first in the Church, and then in the nation and once again become the Republic that our Founders envisioned and hoped to perpetuate into perpetuity.  One Nation under God with Liberty and Justice for All. 

God bless you and God bless America!


The end game of what?  What is the end game of the Democrats in this bogus impeachment boondoggle?  Yes, I called it that and stand by my opinion.  If you hold a differing opinion you have the right to it.  Opinions and a sawbuck will get us a cup of coffee in most places.  Emmitt Smith of the Dallas Cowboys one said, “Opinions are like an anal cavity opening, everybody has one.”  He used a little different language, but I will take my verbiage and leave it at that.  Opinions are just that, opinions.  They are not in and of themselves facts, they are opinions.

Now, back to the question at the outset, ‘What is the end game?’  What could the Democrats possibly hope to achieve with this incredible 3-plus year mining expedition trying to taint, damage, and oust the President?  They know they have no factual evidence, at least none they have offered.  They know they, have little hope of obtaining a conviction in the Senate!  They know that virtually no on the Right will come over to their side.  Therefore, it begs the question, “What is the end game?”

Let me offer my opinions.  Yep, that personal and sometimes valueless activity of forming an opinion is what I am offering.  I believe that what I suggest is valid, but you may unequivocally disagree.  I only ask that you hear my suggestions as possible reasons for this constant dripping on the proverbial rock that we have endured for the entire time Trump has been President.  Yes, he is president even if some do not think legitimately so.  He won!

Possibility number one is they hope to overturn the 2016 election and oust the president.  I suspect that only a few blindly hopefuls on the Left think that is possible.  So, if that is not the reason is there a sub-reason in this attempt to oust him from office? 

Possibility number two is they hope to taint President Trump in the eyes of the public so that he will be damaged goods in November’s election.  But I seriously doubt that anyone other than a few rabid Leftists honestly believes they can turn any on the Right to their side.  There are some who apparently do believe that is possible, but I suspect there are precious few of them.

Possibility number three is they hope to flip at least four Senate seats and regain control of the Senate.  I believe that is a much more viable possibility of what they are hoping to achieve.  They are targeting Susan Collins (R-Maine), John Cornyn (R-Texas), Cory Gardner (R-Colorado), the vacated seat of Jon Kyl (R-Arizona), Thom Tillis (R-North Carolina).  There are others running in 2020 but those are the names I have heard mentioned most often as potential flips.  That may well be their objective since most of them know they cannot oust Trump and many on the Left do not believe they can beat him in 2020. 

Possibility number four is they are seeking to shore up the rabid base on the Left and quell the quest of people like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez to oust some of her own party and replace them with rabid liberals.  The Democrats are a very splintered Party and there are competing factions between the Biden, Obama, Clinton camps and the Sanders, Warren and openly socialist camps.  AOC has been vocal in her intent to spearhead an attempt to rid the Party of any Centrist positions.  She said, that in any other country she and Biden would not be in the same political party.  She has even suggested as have others that if Bernie loses the nomination, they should form a Third Party and run against both sides. 

What could they gain by that action?  They believe that they could split the electoral vote so that no candidate received 270 electoral votes and the election would be sent to the House of Representatives, thus opening the door for them in the future.  I believe that if they splinter the Party that dramatically it will result in the same scenario as Ross Perot caused for George H.W. Bush and they would get beaten soundly.

Possibility number five is one that few are considering.  That is that Schiff and Nadler and a few others are trying to solidify their own base and keep the AOC dogs at bay.  They are talking like the rabid Leftists they are and know that will resonate with the AOC consortium if she has one.  The most rabid among the liberals on the Left are so fixated on hating Trump, anything that appears an effort to destroy him is welcomed by them.

What is the End Game?  Above all is their desire for Power and Control.  Congressman Schiff revealed what he thinks of the American voter in his tirade before the Senate.  He said, “The President’s misconduct cannot be decided at the ballot box, for we cannot be assured that the vote will be fairly won.”  They have said on more than one occasion that they do not trust us to decide who governs us.  They do not believe we are competent enough, intelligent enough, or informed enough to make our own decisions.  That flies in the face of the Constitution and intent of the Founding Fathers.

I am increasingly gravitating toward the opinion that the Democrats in power would seek to suspend all national elections if they had total control and would become our masters for life.  Power corrupts and ultimate power corrupts ultimately.  They are targeting our right to Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Thought, Freedom of Religion, Right to Keep and Bear Arms, and most of our other inalienable rights.  Why?  Because if we are allowed to freely speak our minds, form our own thoughts, worship our God, and protect ourselves they cannot control us. 

What is the end game?  TOTAL CONTROL!  You can doubt my opinions and discount them as nothing more than paranoia, fear-mongering, and conspiracy theories. However, if they regain power, you will discover I am not off the mark.  They do not believe we have the right to private property if that property is useful to them.  Rather than seeing themselves as ‘public servants’ they see us as ‘servants.’  What they think of us was vocalized by Barack Obama as he called us ‘bitter clingers’ and Hillary Clinton as she called us ‘a basket of deplorables.’  They are two of the many who believe they are our rightful lords and we should be grateful for any bones they throw us.  After all, the government not God is the ultimate power to them.

As I said, this is an expression of my opinion and you can do with it what you will.  However, if you value your freedom you will carefully consider what is happening, watch the shenanigans and listen to the superfluous diatribe that has no purpose other than purveying fear and hate.  If you pray, think, and investigate you will realize you have no option but to reject the Leftists in November. 

God bless you and God bless America!


I am sometimes chided for my disbelief in the so-called ‘man-made global warming’ or ‘climate change’ as it is now called.  I am told, “this is settled science.”  However, after doing hours of research I can find nothing settled in this science when it is science.  I find disagreement and refutations of the Alarmist Hysterical Predictions and I continue to believe that God is still on the Throne.  That last statement will possibly tick some off, but I am a Christian, I believe the Bible, I believe that God is Omnipotent, Omniscient, and Omnipresent. 

Al Gore has become incredibly wealthy in his “Climate Change” and “Global Warming” investment in paranoia and hysteria.  He has issued dire prediction of cataclysmic destruction in specified time frames, which failed to occur.  He has joined numerous other Climate Alarmists and purveyors of hysteria and paranoia predicting the ‘End of Humanity’ UNLESS! 

The Unless is the problem for many of us.  The fact that we have not fully embraced his and their predictions and demands, but their prophecies have failed to materialize should be further evidence of their fallacy.  But, alas, that inconvenient truth and fact have no impact on the believers in their prognostications of impending doom.  The Climate Scientists, Hollywood’s Leonardo DiCaprio and now the Democratic Seer, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have given us new warnings of the impending annihilation of humanity due to ‘Climate Change’ or ‘Global Warming’ or ‘Climate Disruption’ or whatever they call it these days. 

Ms. Ocasio-Cortez informed us that in her scientific view we have only 12 years before the planet will be no more UNLESS!  Unless we agree to the regulations, restrictions, and costliness of her proposals, those of the United Nations, Al Gore, George Soros, Mr. DiCaprio, and others.  The Democrats in Congress have decided it is in their political best interest to become the champions of ‘Climate Change’ and take the lead.  But where are they leading us?

We have had these dire predictions for a long time. In the modern era, it began in the late 1960s and has escalated over the past almost 60 years.  Yet, the planet is still perking nicely, humans are still thriving, and there has been none of the cataclysmic destruction they predicted.  When the prophets keep prophesying and the prophesies keep failing, one would wonder, when do we stop believing their prophecies?  In the Bible, that prophet would have been stoned by now, but this is modern politically correct America, not the Bible, so they continue.

In 1968, biologist Paul Ehrlich wrote a book, “The Population Bomb” in which he detailed his prediction of starvation because of overpopulation.  He argued for the involuntary sterilization of some people to prevent this occurrence.  He predicted, “unless we are extremely lucky, everybody will disappear in a cloud of blue stream in 20 years.”  Wait?  Aren’t we still here?  Is this existence we now enjoy just a figment or apparition?  Is this just floating unattached consciousness or are we really here? Yes, Alice, we are still here.  It is real.

In 1970, he predicted that the oceans would be dead, and Americans would be suffering from starvation, and food and water would be rationed as the norm.  Oh, did I forget to mention that in the 1970’s the warnings were for ‘Global Cooling’ not ‘Global Warming’?  My bad.  The illustrious Washington Post predicted, “the world could be as little as 50 or 60 years from a disastrous new ice age.”  My how times change, don’t they?  The cyclical nature of our climate is embodied in the shift from cooling to warming.  It has and will continue to shift.

In 1970 the Boston Globe published an article by Scientist James Lodge, and his prediction, “Air pollution may obliterate the sun and cause a new ice age in the first third of the next century.”  He told the paper that all the water in the rivers and streams of the United States would ‘boil dry’ if people kept using electricity and our use of that resource would exhaust the world’s oxygen supply in the 21st century.  Turn off the lights now!  Well, maybe not, since we are using far more today than then, and all is still well. 

Then we had the ‘acid rain’ scare and the ‘ozone hole’ that was going to destroy the planet and its people.  Today, it has shifted to ‘Global Warming’ and for at least 30 years we have heard dire predictions. Each of those predictions has failed to materialize, but with each missed deadline for destruction, a new prophecy is issued by the hysteria peddlers of the Climate Change crowd. 

In the 1980’s we had the prediction by James Hansen of NASA that we were facing dire temperature changes, sea-levels rising and increased droughts.  He argued that portions of New York City would be underwater within 20-30 years.  Yet, he contended that water would be so scarce that restaurants would have signs “water by request only.”  He contended that the Arctic Ice Cap would be completely gone by the summer of 2018.  I just checked on Google Earth and it appears to still be there.  In fact, scientific data indicates that it has shifted but there is more ice mass than when he made his predictions. 

How about the prophecy by the “Independent” in 2000 that snow would become rare within a few years?  Then there was the “Guardian” in 2002 and 2004, contending that famine would occur in ten short years and that Britain would experience a Siberian climate by 2020?  Grab your coats all my British friends you are about to freeze your behinds off. Well, maybe not, but that’s the hype and hysteria being purveyed.  Al Gore contended that by 2008 there would be no Polar Ice Cap or other Arctic Ice within a handful of years.  How are they still believed, and deemed credible by anyone? 

If the Media was half as diligent in reporting the failures as the predictions the public would be aware but alas, millions are in the bliss of ignorance and believe that the Sky is Falling, and we are doomed.  Therefore, they deem that we must submit to the demands of the globalist who want total control and are using the so-called crisis of Climate Change as their catalyst to attain their objective. 

This manufactured crisis is just another of the many excuses the globalist uses to grow the government.  Politicians like a bigger more powerful government because it lines their pockets more fully and gives them power.  They follow the declaration of Rahm Emanuel and the Democrats, politicians are averse to missing an opportunity to gain more power.  They follow the edict and motto, “never let a serious crisis go to waste” even a manufactured one.

God help us to wake up and stop them before they destroy what is left of this Republic.  Join me and Vote No on the Democrats and Primary the RINOs in 2020.  America needs her patriots more than ever.

God bless you and God bless America!


Who did?  The Democrats in the debate last night in Texas.  I was disturbed, appalled, angry, frustrated, and disheartened by what little I heard.  I was alarmed and disappointed that even in the bastion of liberalism that Houston, Texas has become and the university at which they held the debate.  But, with the influx of liberal thought from outside the state and the decades of brainwashing in our universities, I am not surprised.  Add to that mix the bought and paid for liberal activist what else would we expect?

The Democratic Candidates for President, with the minor exception of Joe Biden, all revealed that the Constitution is meaningless to them.  As it was with Barack Obama, if it prevents them from doing what they want, they are willing to ignore it.  The assertions and appeals being made from that group were rooted in ignorance, misinformation, and paranoia.  It was an attempt to fan the flames of irrational emotion to achieve an end.  The end, I am convinced is not what they say they are seeking to achieve.

The question was raised to Kamala Harris about Joe Biden’s comment that her promise to secure ‘gun control’ on her first day in office as President through executive order.  Biden said and tried to repeat that ‘We have a Constitution.’  She ignored that as did the rest of the crowd.  Those especially disgusting included Robert Francis O’Rourke and Cory Booker.  They made some outlandishly ignorant statements that need to be addressed.  However, the bottom line is far worse than their ignorance.

I can understand the frustration of feeling like you are supposed to do something to protect people.  I can appreciate the urge to do something to quiet the fears of the public after mass shootings.  I can appreciate trying to find a viable and real solution to a problem.  However, if you begin with the wrong premise you reach a wrong conclusion.  That is what they are doing and what millions across America are doing.  We are treading water in the murky waters of tyranny and must be cautious.

The words of Benjamin Franklin and his warning should be given new life today.  I will paraphrase, “If we give up liberty hoping to gain safety and security, we will achieve neither.”  The idea that banning, confiscating, forcing people to sell their guns to the government WILL NOT solve the problem but make Americans less safe.  That reality is not the most dangerous part of their pursuit and agenda.  If we give up rights in one area, such as our 2nd Amendment Rights what is to prevent them from taking rights in other areas.  They are already attacking our 1st Amendment Rights and our 4th Amendment Rights.  What is next?  Total Tyranny?

Mr. O’Rourke demonstrated his total ignorance regarding guns or his diabolical intent or both.  He tried to make the argument that the AR-15 and AK-47 were designed to kill and therefore must be banned.  Sir, I must ask, “What gun is not designed to kill?”  He further stated that the ‘high capacity’ rifles were incredibly dire because the ‘high capacity’ rifle bullet when it hits its targets spreads throughout the body because that was its design.  That is total ignorance and I would hope he knows it.  The magazine does not determine the effect of the bullet.  If he was speaking of a bullet that fragments and stays within the body, he was probably speaking of ‘frangible’ ammo.  That round is designed for close-quarters use by the police or to protect innocent bystanders in the instance a round must be fired at a perpetrator. 

Mr. O’Rourke was asked if he would force Americans to give up their so-called ‘assault’ rifles.  He said, “Hell yes, I will take their guns.”  He and Mr. Booker tired to make the impassioned plea that ‘We have to do something.’  All of them argued that we could not wait until the Democrats were back in power but must do something now. 

Mr. Booker said that 80% of Americans favor a federal gun license.  Well, 83% believe that mental health is the main cause of mass shootings.  So, again, I contend that they are targeting the wrong root cause. The paranoia over semi-automatic rifles is misguided.  Have we forgotten that the scores of murders and shootings in cities like Chicago and New York are not with an AR-15 or AK-47 but a handgun?  Will that be banned next by the left.  If you demand a federal gun license will you also demand a valid photo voter identification?

The problem, which I have stated before, is that when a mass shooting takes place and the government acts with another ‘gun law’ that restricts the rights of legal Americans it does not solve the problem.  There is another public outcry to ‘do something’ and another more restrictive law is passed or enacted and that also fails.  Over time, the public becomes accepting of the idea of ‘banning guns’ trying to find safety and that opens the door for the government to impose restrictions in every area of life and gives them Total Control.

The inherent dangers of following this path of targeting a style of firearms thinking that is the solution are mountainous.  America, if we allow the politicians to continue stripping us, the law-abiding of our inalienable and constitutional rights hoping the criminals will also comply we endanger ourselves.

Additionally, if you think Donald Trump is foul-mouthed, how about condemning the potty mouth former Congressman from El Paso.  He seems to think that his increasing use of profanity is somehow endearing him to the public.  I find it repulsive and it shows his lack of ability to communicate so he is trying to be macho and demonstrate that he is a take-charge guy fighting for the people.  I see no redeeming value in his arguments or his demonstrated character.

America, if we do not wake up and reject that group of people who see no value, no authority, and have no respect for the document they will swear to protect and defend we destroy ourselves.   I reject the lot of them and will vote to ensure they do not regain control in 2020.

God bless you and God bless America!


The Left is spinning the spin and the various news outlets are chanting the mantra that the A/G’s special prosecutor or investigator or whatever he is called is just doing a fact-finding inquiry, not a criminal investigation.  That might be true, but…  But what?  But, if that is the case, then they have no cause for the panic being exhibited and the attempts of Comey, Brennan, and Clapper trying to throw the other under the bus. 

I get amused at the calumniation of the Democrats, the Media, and the various activist including some Republicans that insist everything done by Comey, Brennan, Clapper, Obama, Clinton, Schiff, Nadler, and the plethora of other Leftists identified, was on the up and up.  They insist that this was all done by the books.  I guess we should be asking, “What Books?”  Maybe we should ask, “Whose Book?”  The Cloward-Piven Book, the Alinsky Book, the Obama Book, What Book?  It is definitely not the Constitution and the defined laws guiding the process.  They besmirched President Trump at every turn without documentation, fact, or verified information.  His destruction was their objective and still is.

Their antics remind me of the “Who’s on First” skit by Abbott and Costello and is laughingly similar to the “Keystone Cops” episodes of bygone eras.  Brennan is going on the News Circuit claiming this investigation is a ‘fishing expedition’.  Seriously?  We just endured a two-plus year investigation of fictional collusion with Russia by the Trump team and the mythical obstruction of justice for the President doing his constitutionally guided job.  Now, when the shoe is on the other foot it is a ‘fishing expedition?’ 

Brennan insisted that what Trump and Barr were trying to do was find something they could misrepresent and taint the pristine actions of the FBI, CIA, Homeland, and NSA in this debacle and what should be called a scandal.  Seriously?  Misrepresent, that’s what you and the followers of your brand of toxic liberalism have been doing since the 2016 campaign when it was clear Trump was the Republican nominee.  What do you fear if you have nothing to hide?  Why posture yourselves and attempt to throw your fellow conspirators under the bus if there is nothing to find? 

They used the Steele dossier or the “Pee dossier” as intelligence when they knew almost from the beginning if not from the beginning it was largely if not totally fabricated.  The rats begin jumping the ship immediately when Attorney General Barr appointed a U.S. attorney to investigate the origins of the Russia collusion claims.  The email chain, texts, and other documentation have surfaced and the I.G. report is apparently so damning to their efforts they are scrambling to secure the appropriate cover. 

We know that the dossier was used as evidence and intelligence in at least three successful FISA warrants being secured.  The first application was signed by James Comey in October 2016 as they began spying on Trump campaign adviser Carter Page.  Then the 2nd and 3rd were renewed every 90 days. 

A Brennan surrogate came forth and made allegations against James Comey and has insisted that Brennan and Clapper opposed Comey on the inclusion of the Steele dossier in the FISA applications because it was not intelligence.  That is somewhat laughable because Brennan had already been publicly vocal and adamant about his desire to stop Trump.  They might not have wanted to use the fictitious dossier, but they wanted the FISA warrants and wanted to spy on Trump and anyone connected to him.

On the other hand, a member of Comey’s army insisted that it was Brennan that insisted that the dossier be included in the ICA report on Russian interference.  It can be amusing watching the finger pointing and hilarious attempts to do CYA when those with their hands in the cookie jar get exposed. 

Former Representative Trey Gowdy, said that based on what he has seen, Comey has a better argument than Brennan on who was the key figure in including the fallacious dossier to obtain illegal warrants to spy on American citizens.  Mr. Gowdy said, “Tell anybody looking into this to look at the emails.” 

When Comey testified before the House of Representatives Judiciary and Oversight and Government Reform Committee, Mr. Gowdy challenged Comey on the dossier.  The dossier was referred to internally by the FBI as “crown material”, and heavily relied on.  Why?  Because they had nothing else and knew they could spin it to get what they wanted in the FISA Court.

Mr. Gowdy asked Comey if he (Comey) recalled whether any quote, crown material, or dossier material was included in the IC assessment.  Comey, said, “Yes.”  He then tried to do some basic CYA and referred to the unclassified Exhibit A called Annex A in the report entitled, “Russia – Kremlin’s TV Seeks to Influence Politics, Fuel Discontent in the U.S.”  That report like the rest of the report included this disclaimer:

This report is a declassified version of a highly classified assessment; its conclusions are identical to those in the highly classified assessment, but this version does not include the full supporting information on key elements of the influence campaign.” 

As the inquiry continued Comey threw Brennan under the bus and insisted that Brennan was part of the initial decision to include the Steele dossier in everything they did.  Clapper went on CNN insisting that they had corroborated some of the dossier and therefore included it in their pursuit of Trump.  That was a blatant lie and he knew it, but CNN parroted it and the ill-informed and those wanting to believe the worst about Trump bought it hook line and sinker.

Brennan regularly briefed Obama on the dossier and their actions in pursuing something on Trump.  Obama, Hillary, Brennan, Clapper, Comey, and the almost endless list of other prominent Democrats have incredibly dirty hands.  If the Attorney General wants to restore any semblance of justice and integrity to the DOJ and Washington, he must not only do a fact-finding inquiry into this but prosecute the guilty of a violation of our laws. Some of the actions border on if they are not fully Treasonous.  I want all the corrupt to be exposed to the light of day and brought to justice, regardless of political affiliation.

God bless you and God bless America!


Let me state at the outset, this is not a one-sided tendency but one that is so deeply ingrained in politics and politicians it emanates from both sides of the aisle and is pervasive in much of society.  Of course, I am speaking of something in particular so rather than any further attempts to stimulate your interest, let’s get to it.

This can be and must be applied to numerous situations, words, and events, but one that comes to the forefront of my thought consciousness is “Global Warming.”  The more I research the transition and development of this idea, as advanced by Al Gore and scores of others on the Left, I observe some interesting facts and factors.  No, I do not find evidence to support the theory of man-made global warming, but how Global Warming became Climate Change and why.  It was both the work of politics and an effort to package and sell an unsellable commodity to the public.

Those advancing this theory discovered that the public and most politicians were not buying the concept and were unwilling to advance the desired policies being requested. That prompted them to do something interesting.  Their think-tank or whatever consortium of like-minded advocates they had networked together came up with an ingenious idea.  They changed the theory from being called ‘Global Warming’ to ‘Climate Change.’  Seems a bit benign on the surface but it is far from benign.

That simple change enabled them to base all their research on computer models which are only as good as the information put in them and politicize the weather.  Al Gore became an incredibly wealthy man as he engaged in this hype.  Others have become incredibly wealthy and powerful and entire nations have been brought under the thumb of the proponents and human beings have suffered more than a little. 

Let me refer you to a published declaration that appeared in the Wall Street Journal in January 2012.  In that research and article, the reports from sixteen eminent scientists declaring, “No Need to Panic About Global Warming.”  That should have been the end of this hoax, but they were ignored, and the hype continued.  Let me give you a statement from those scientists and you then decide if you still believe that man is causing global warming or climate change to the degree the Al Gore’s of the world insist.

“Today’s CO2 concentrations worldwide average about 380 parts per million. This level of CO2 concentration is trivial compared with the concentrations during earlier geologic periods. For example, 460 million years ago, during the Ordovician Period, CO2 concentrations were 4,400 ppm, and temperatures then were about the same as they are today. With such high levels of CO2, the Earth should have been boiling.”

Based on those facts I must remain a doubter or denier of the theory and hold to my belief that God is in control of the weather.  I do not believe that God is an absentee landlord and that puny man is capable of causing the disruption of which we are accused.  Those scientists also stated something more that should bury this theory once and for all, but it hasn’t and will not.

“According to the website, the current global average temperature is roughly ‘shy of 60 degrees Fahrenheit. About 55 million years ago – just after the age of the Dinosaurs – the era known as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) saw average global temps as high as 73 degrees Fahrenheit.” 

I have read research from eminent scientists that suggest that rather than focusing on global warming we are moving in the direction of another global cooling.  They believe that a ‘cooling’ globally is possible and likely in this century rather than a ‘warming.’  I had someone challenge me saying, “If you don’t believe in ‘global warming’ your grand kids will.”  Seriously?  They might, they are being taught to be people who think.  However, I believe if they think and do actual research they will be like their grandpa and deny that this is the work of man. 

If the Global Warming or Climate Change advocates get their way, we will be plunged back into the pre-technological and pre-industrial eras and everyone and everything will suffer.  Transportation, manufacturing, energy, medicine, and even education will be hampered if not destroyed. 

A basic study of science reveals that the many arguments regarding CO2 emissions as being the greatest enemy of mankind and the planet is ludicrous.  The idea that CO2 emissions are the main driver of weather patterns is not an established scientific fact and there is much disagreement in the scientific community over its role and influence. 

To argue, as some politicians have that bovine flatulence must end to save the planet is based on imagination, not scientific data.  What if we went back to a time where there were millions of animals include the Bison or Buffalo that roamed freely across the planet.  Did they not pass gas?  How did the cow suddenly become the culprit?  Those four-legged creatures are simply a pawn in the scheme to gain control of everything through paranoia and fear-mongering.

Changing the name of something or redefining it has happened in many other things and the among the newest is the idea of Socialism being sold as Progressivism and Liberalism.  The redefining of genders and the expanding the basic factual DNA proven number from two to dozens is simply part of the scheme to package and sell an idea or agenda.  Free speech, if it is from a conservative, constitutional, or religious position is now Hate speech and not protected by the 1st Amendment. 

America, if we are to survive we must reject the presumptive postulations by the Left and return to following God’s moral law, using rational reason, and restoring the Constitution as the Law of the Land.  We have much to do, and it is imperative that each of us shoulders their own share of the load and gets to the business of reclaiming the Constitutional Government our Founders established and charged us to maintain.

God bless you and God bless America. 


How’s that for sounding like a ‘war-monger’? But, that is not my intent or my heart.  I desperately long for peace in America.  I want what seems to be an elusive dream and often seems a Utopian fantasy, a United America!  I was not alive during WWII but the spirit of survival and the spirit of patriotism that coursed through the veins of most Americans in that ear is something I long for.  I did not see it in Vietnam, a war of which I am a veteran.  I saw glimpses of it after 9/11 and saw what could be.

However, even in 9/11, there were naysayers and those who sought to divide America and prevent our focus on America and the perceived threat of our very existence.  There are some who are ‘Truthers’ who call this a heinous inside job by our American government.  Some of them are on my Facebook friends list and will take offense to what I’m saying.  If I were to adopt that view, and just because I see it on Google does not make it so, I would withdraw from society and become a hermit hiding in isolation and praying that no one finds me.  Our government has done some pretty bad things in our history and my argument that this was an attack by whoever is not a justification of the bad we have done in our history.

But, none of those things are my focus for this article. The disunity of America and the brewing and possibly impending civil war in America is.  The words of Rodney King are frequent thoughts in my mind and I hear calls from both sides of the aisle to “just get along.” 

Sadly, both sides seem to have drawn lines in the sand and refuse to budge.  Most of the calls for ‘civility’ and ‘unity’ put the burden and responsibility for the divide on one side or the other.  That almost guarantees there will be no coming together as a nation and no engaging in civil discourse that is void of violence.  Again, this is a heart and mind condition that is not a recent development.  This has been brewing and developing for decades but is almost to the point of eruption and that is deeply disappointing and concerning.

I, as a supporter of this President, am willing to say, there will be no getting along until the foundational issues of the millions who back President Trump are addressed with seriousness.  There were issues addressed in the 2016 Campaign that have not been facilitated or even considered by the Left and too many on the Right.  The typical response of Congress is to kick the can down the road and ignore the real issues.  They deal with the superficial and the easy but the difficult, complicated, and controversial they tend to sidestep.  Getting elected and reelected is their objective not fixing America’s problems. 

This may shock and even infuriate some, but I do not see Donald J. Trump as an extreme politician.  I can hear the gasps and some saying, “But, Roy, his rhetoric and constant tweeting is extreme.”  Really?  In 2020 America that is extreme?  If that is the case then virtually every member of Congress and every member of the Media, Hollywood, and most College Professors are extremist.  In fact, most of us are if that is the measure of extremism. 

The polarization in America and in American politics is not caused by Donald Trump, he is the result of that polarization.  Donald Trump’s election did not cause division in America it exposed it.  Millions of Americans in most States in this Republic had grown fed-up with politicians and politics and wanted America to be America again.  We had grown tired of the continued taxation, restrictions, political correctness, dismantling of our military, erasing our borders, and shredding our Constitution.  We wanted to get government out of our healthcare, our bedrooms, and relegate it to limited involvement in our daily lives.  In short, we wanted what our Founders and the Framers of the Constitution established and envisioned.  We still do!

At the risk of alienating some on both sides of the ideological aisle, the divide in America is not Republican vs Democrat it is Good vs Evil.  No, I am not saying if you are a Democrat you are evil and if you are a Republican you are good.  But, this is a heart and mind issue more than it is a political one.  The National Democratic Establishment has adopted Evil as their platform.  They have become, if they were not always, incredibly authoritarian.  They have moved to the Left of the Leftists FDR, Lyndon Johnson, Jimmy Carter, and in many ways even Barack Obama. 

The National Democratic Party that should include Socialist in their name has become visibly anti-Semitic.  Their leaders, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Elijah Cummings, and others have demonstrated a propensity to stoop to any level of dishonesty to achieve their objective.  There has been the direct and indirect encouragement for violence and some of their followers hear that as validation of their anger and open season on those who oppose their views. 

The rage against this president has been 100% manufactured and the refusal of the National and Congressional Democrats to move on and accept the acknowledgment of ‘no collusion’ in the 400+ page Mueller report is dangerous.  It is designed to keep Trump in the news, fake and real, and keep their base and followers in the dark and enraged.  They believe they must maintain that to have any hope of winning in 2020.  Are they right?  November of 2020 will be the answer.

As long as the angry bitter vitriol continues, we will have no peace.  As long as the fanning of the flames and the insistence continues, we will have no peace.  As long as the misuse and abuse of Law Enforcement and Intelligence Agencies continues, there will be no peace.  As long as various governmental agencies such as the IRS are used to target those of opposing views, there will be no peace. 

I am deeply concerned that there will be a blood-letting civil war in America!  There are extremist on both sides who are chomping at the bits to engage in war.  They are ticking time bombs with increasingly short fuses.  The ranting of politicians like Maxine Waters, Corey Booker, and others continues, there will be no peace.  As long as there is perceived or real ‘ballot harvesting’ in elections trying to steal them for either side, there will be no peace.  As long as there is the attempt to shred our Constitution and ‘fundamentally transform’ America into something other than what we were established to be Constitutionally, there will be no peace.

America if we want peace we must turn to the Prince of Peace!  I make no apologies in calling for America to Repent and Return to the LORD.  The directive in 2 Chronicles 7:14 is applicable today and is both a warning and a promise.  God says, “If My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek My face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.”  We need healing and I pray, “Father, forgive me for my failures and help me be the man needed to bring about godly change in my world.”

            God bless you and God bless America!
