HAVE WE LOST THE BATTLE and FAILED TO REALIZE IT?


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!

WHAT IS THE END GAME?


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!

TODAY’S LIBERAL HYSTERIA – The Sky Is Falling…


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!

THEY TOTALLY EXPOSED THEMSELVES THIS TIME…


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!

DEMOCRATS CLAIM THEY ARE NOT CONCERNED BUT…


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!

REDEFINING TERMS FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES…


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 Climate.gov 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. 

WHY THERE CANNOT BE PEACEFUL COEXISTENCE IN 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!
