THE OBAMA UTOPIA – – The Liberal, Progressive, Democrat Version of a New and Improved Fundamentally Transformed AMERICA…


BLOG POST 3 - utopia

For eight years, we watched the systematic and consistent assault on the United States Constitution by Barack Obama and his cohorts in the Democrat Party and it should have disturbed and angered everyone.  In the very beginning of Obama’s reign (his view regarding his term in office) he and his wife have trashed America, talked down American Excellence and consistently apologized for what they apparently view an evil empire called the United States of America.  That should cause one to believe that he wants to completely destroy this nation but is that his objective?

I believe that he and many of his fellow leftist fully believe the rhetoric and narcissistic views he and they express.  Barack Obama seemed to believe that he was the savior of the planet and commissioned by all that is divine to right the perceived wrongs of this nation from its inception.  He was so filled with distaste for America and most of the West it could not be hidden.  However, I believe that his objective and the leftist was not the TOTAL DESTRUCTION of America but, as he promised, the “fundamental transformation” of the nation.  The only question is “transformed” into what?

The Leftist, including the former president, like most communist and socialist before they taste the power of rule believe the propaganda of a utopian world in which all is equal and everyone shares and shares alike.  The problem is those in charge do not want to share, do not believe they are required to share and therefore live as royal potentates while their subjects live in abject squalor.  There is no remorse or twinge of conscience over that disparity for they believe that it is through their superior intellect, morality and knowledge of what is right and best they have earned respect and worship of we lesser mortals and it is their divine right to reap the benefits at our expense.

Mr. Obama and the Leftist seem to believe that the United States is and has been an arrogant nation needing to be taken down a peg or two and they are diligently working to accomplish that.  They believe that ‘redistribution of wealth’ will create equality and provide a certain reparation for the gross evil of those who risked, earned, developed, created and grew businesses and wealth.  In short, they view capitalism as the evil enemy and a target to be destroyed.  They fully believe that government is god and that only government can create wealth, jobs, a stable economy, and a utopia and therefore anyone who is conservative or a constitutionalist is a mortal enemy and must be destroyed without remedy.  For them, defeating constitutional conservatism at the polls is not enough. They desire that the individuals and organizations so identified must be eviscerated, annihilated and completely eradicated from existence or forced into submission.

They see in the demise of the Republic as it was created a new Phoenix rising from the ashes and a New American Utopia established in its stead.  They seem to truly believe that America was founded by evil, selfish, hate-filled white men.  The amazing thing is some of them have amassed fortunes from the very system they seek to destroy and are white but still, they advance that agenda religiously.  (It is a religion).  They work in conjunction with the A.C.L.U., Moveon.org, and the Center for American Progress, Media Matters, and other leftist organizations.  They also join with Islamic groups such as CAIR and seek to use America’s freedoms as weapons against this great nation.

BLOG POST 3 - New And Improved

Although I believe that Barack Obama and his followers want to solidify and create a Democrat Party that is so overpowering it is undefeatable I do not believe he cares as much about the party as his legacy and place in history and his ascension to Grand Potentate of the Universe.  I believe that the former president demonstrated that he is naïve, narcissistic, ideological and delusional?  I believe that his efforts harmed America?  I believe that had Hillary Clinton been elected the agenda began by Barack Obama would have been advanced to the point of no return?  I am thankful she lost!

The grand tragedy is that there are millions who do not believe the truth that the objective of the Obama Liberals was to REMAKE America and millions agree with the expressed antipathy for America.  If you listen you will hear the voices like Jeremiah Wright ‘condemning’ America and becoming almost giddy when she suffers at the hands of those who want to destroy us.

I am convinced that we have been given a brief reprieve from the destruction and afforded a small window of opportunity to restore America to her constitutional status.  The issues before us are about far more than the White House or which party controls Congress it is about the Constitution, the Republic, and Freedom.  If we do not hold firm and in 2018 & 2020 evict those who refuse to stand firm constitutionally and elect people with patriotic courage, integrity and dogged determination to see America restored we will have lost or severely done harm to the Republic.  God can deliver us if we fall on our faces repenting and praying.  If we sit on our hands in our ivory towers and continue to declare that Christians cannot be involved, we will lose… No, we will have lost. 

America the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave once a reality is in danger of becoming a memory.  What say you?  Will you stand for America and do what must be done to see her restored?

God, bless you and God bless America!

IN THE INTEREST OF HONEST DIALOGUE and ESTABLISHING OUR REPUBLIC…


BLOG POST 2 - Dialogue

The Framers, as they are called, elected to hold their deliberations in secret free from the prying eyes of the press or anyone on the outside of the Constitutional Convention.  Their expressed reason from doing so was to enable each delegate to freely speak from the heart and convey, argue, contend, or propose those ideas and sentiments they held as core convictions regarding they type scope, and style of the American government.  Our fledgling nation operated under the Articles of Confederation in the ensuing years after the end of the Revolutionary War and our victory.  Those Articles rendered the Federal Government so impotent that each state did whatever it wanted with no regard for the whole and there was genuine concern that the new nation would not evolve into a Republic but would implode and become prey to more powerful and organized nations.  Each of the thirteen states operated as a virtually independent country and some contributed to the support of the national government, some didn’t, and none paid their fully assigned share.  It became increasingly evident that something had to be done to preserve the Union and the independence recently won and yet protect the rights of the individuals and states.  This was a major undertaking and the outcome still amazes me when I consider what I know of the sentiments of that era and as I view the politics of today.  I contend that we would never achieve what they achieved under today’s method of operation and political division, although I affirm that we need to do something.  We need to return to their objective, LIMITED GOVERNMENT but strong enough to provide for the common defense and hold the union together forming a Strong Union and Republic.

The fifty-five delegates from the thirteen states that gathered on May 25, 1787, Philadelphia’s Independence Hall found their task not without difficulty and almost failed on numerous occasions.  Fifty-five people represented numerous ideological and political positions and most who held those positions were firmly entrenched in their beliefs.  George Washington was unanimously elected as the president of the convention and from all accounts, his integrity and honesty brought significant balance to the convention and kept it from jumping the rails and ending in chaos and confusion.  Most of the delegates were in their thirties and forties and well educated.  Their ranks included lawyers, bankers, merchants, and farmers with Benjamin Franklin being the oldest at eighty-one.  Thomas Jefferson and John Adams were absent due to serving as ambassadors in Europe.  John Jay, Samuel Adams, John Hancock were also absent and Patrick Henry refused to attend believing that he “smelled a rat” and the convention would ultimately jeopardize the rights of states and individuals.  James Madison was only twenty-six years of age and fortunately years earlier Thomas Jefferson had sent him crates of books on various forms of governments and he studied them diligently.  He became known as the “Father of the Constitution” and was a key advocate of the “Bill of Rights.” 

For four months, the delegates labored to hammer out a compromise that established an amazing system of government that was flexible enough to withstand more than two centuries of change.  There were many issues that divided the delegates including slavery, popular voice of the people, and states’ rights.  Benjamin Franklin, sensing the danger of the entire convention falling apart make his infamous appeal based on Psalm 127:1.  I will give a portion of his plea: “I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth, that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?  We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that ‘except the Lord builds the house, they labor in vain that build it.’  I firmly believe this, and I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall become a reproach and bye word down to future ages.  And what is worse, mankind may hereafter from this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing governments by human wisdom and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.  I, therefore, beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this assembly every morning before we proceed to business and that one or more of the clergy of the city be requested to officiate in that service.”  That is an awesome recognition of the Hand and Providence of God in Government and in Life.

There have been and could be entire volumes written on the deliberations and the subsequent government that was reached in their wisdom and the guidance of the divine.  Even after they arrived at a final draft of the Constitution there were those who resisted because it did not clearly protect people’s basic civil rights, such as freedom of religion, speech, and press.  Samuel Adams and John Hancock agreed to support the constitution only after these three liberties were included in a compromise on February 6th.   Patrick Henry, George Mason, and later Richard Henry Lee led the fight for the inclusion of a “Bill of Rights”.  Many of the Framers believed those were included in the State Constitutions but those pressing for this action won the debate and thankfully we have the “Bill of Rights” included in our Constitution.

James Madison declared regarding the type of government they sought in the Constitution and Bill of Rights, “The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined.  Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite.”  That was then and this is now according to the Progressives, Liberals, and politicians that sentiment and document are inadequate and antiquated.  The Framers and Founders desired, designed, and presented a system of government that was LIMITED on the federal level and provided safeguards to prevent a Tyrannical Federal bureaucracy.  We have allowed politicians and pundits to erode those safeguards and the federal government designed to be LIMITED has become a behemoth that believes it is ALL POWERFUL and rather than being a government where the ultimate power is in the hands of the citizens it has become a government where ultimate power is in Washington and little or none vested in the citizens.  THAT MUST CHANGE!

May God, bless you and may He bless America again!

SHOULD WE BE CONCERNED AS CONSERVATIVES???


BLOG POST 7 - Cause for Concern

No, this is not a Never Trump article nor am I blindly waving the pompoms.  However, I am concerned that some, if not many, of the campaign promises will fall by the wayside because of the lack of intestinal fortitude, conservatism, and resolve by the Republicans in Congress.  I’m not just talking about those easily identified as RINOs but some who are frequently identified as conservatives.  Why the lack of will to address some of the issues that the voters wanted to be addressed?  There is no easy answer but one answer is they are part of the “Elitist Professional Ruling Class Political Establishment.”  That is a mouthful but I believe explains the lion’s share of WHY’s.

Let’s take the Fake News Rhetoric and spin of the Democrats, Progressives, and Establishment types in Washington regarding Obamacare as a starting point.  We are constantly being told that if Congress truly repeals Obamacare over 22-23 Million will lose their health insurance coverage and many will die.  The hysteria is to fan the flames of distrust and accuse all Republicans and any who support the public’s expressed desire to repeal Obamacare as evil, bigoted, racist haters of the elderly, women, and children.  The purpose of that is not to truly address a genuine concern but to solicit votes in the next election to advance their partisan political agenda.  It is about political control and power not about healthcare or any genuine concern about people’s health.  You may disagree but that is what I see from where I sit or stand.

There was a time we thought ‘rag magazines’ such as the National Enquirer, TMZ, and other gossip here-say sources were totally unreliable sources of information. Today it seems that many times they have become a more reliable source of news than the New York Times, Washington Post, Chicago Tribune, L.A. Times or most of the news mediums of today.  That is a sad indictment and when you toss in CNN, MSNBC, CBS, ABC, NBC, and much on the internet you have a situation where people are, at best, confused, and at worst, deceived and blinded to the truth.

If it were just the news outlets suffering from this condition of ‘faux truth’ it would be bad enough but when government agencies take the same road it places Americans in an impossible situation where they cannot trust the news mediums nor their government.  When you cannot trust anyone that is a condition that can only lead to disaster, chaos, and ruin and it appears that is where we are today in America.  The Congressional Budget Office describes itself as, “Strictly nonpartisan” and claims that it conducts objective, impartial analysis hiring employees strictly and solely on their professional competence with no regard to their political affiliation.  If you believe that, I have some pristine Pacific Ocean Front Property here in North Texas that I’d like to sell you.  Their analysis of the AHCA presented by the Republicans sounded more like it was written by the Clinton Campaign, the Obama Administration or the DNC than a ‘non-partisan’ agency.

The result is the Senate, called the ‘greatest deliberative body in the world,’ will most likely twiddle their thumbs, sit on their hands, dilly, and dally around the issue and DO NOTHING.  Politicians, for the most part, seem to believe that keeping campaign promises is for chumps and losers, not professionals.  The fact that President Trump has tried to keep his promises has earned him the moniker of “novice” as one of the kinder labels.  As, Speaker Ryan said, “He’s new at this and doesn’t understand.”  The image presented by the Speaker was that Trump was incompetent and the professionals would have to carry the load and keep everything business as usual.  With friends like Speaker Ryan, Mr. Trump needs no enemies.  The Senate has no stomach to deal with illegal immigration, the border, tax cuts, and a myriad of other issues that could and should have been addressed years ago.  WHY?  Because they are members of the “Elitist Professional Ruling Class Political Establishment.”  Business, as usual, is their objective while solidifying their Position, Power, and Purse at our expense and to the detriment of the Constitution.

The CBO claimed that 22-23 Million would lose their health insurance under the ACHA by 2026. That’s all the RINO’s and Democrats needed to hear to send them into full hysteria and dig their heels in the dirt resisting any repeal or replacement.  The CBO did not address the disaster that is now existing with Obamacare and no one seems to be talking about the part of their analysis that declared a $120 BILLION savings over that same 10-year period.  Heaven forbid that we should talk about any positives of the ACHA, after all, to do so would suggest that the Democrat agenda and the policies of the past 8 years were not the best things since sliced bread.  Did you know that the Kaiser Family Foundation released a finding that 49% of Americans are covered by employer-based insurance, which covers preexisting conditions?  That is also true for 20% who are on Medicaid and 14% on Medicare.  That leaves only 16% on individual plans (Obamacare) or uninsured.  The uninsured constitute approximately 9% and preexisting conditions are moot because they don’t have insurance now!  The faux news does not tell the 7% that are on Obamacare plans that the ACHA requires coverage for preexisting conditions.  Therefore, tell me how 23 Million will lose their coverage and how repealing Obamacare will kill people? 

The issue virtually nobody is focusing on is True Portability of Insurance coverage and the fact that because you have coverage for a condition it does not mean that the doctors and hospitals offering that care are in your network.  One report I have seen is that about 500,000, not 23 Million are in danger of losing coverage and those could easily be included in Medicaid. Isn’t it a wiser option to deal with this small segment than destroying the entire system as does Obamacare?  Obamacare has resulted in people losing the plans they were happy with, being unable to afford coverage due to rising costs, and other issues.  It is a disaster and the Fake News and Professional Politicians are helping to destroy the greatest healthcare system in the world.  Is there cause for Conservatives to be concerned?  YOU CAN BET YOUR BOTTOM DOLLAR THERE IS!   This is one of the many reasons I would like to see “pink slips” handed to many incumbents in the 2018 and 2020 elections.  It is time to break out the brooms and clean house in Washington.

God, bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!

 

THE BLACK SOUL OF THE LEFT-WING…


BLOG POST 11 - Deep

This may earn me the left-foot of fellowship from some but I address this with a desire to encourage everyone to seek common ground and find healing in America.  I will refrain from calling them any of the names that many on the Right feel justified in calling the Leftist and their hateful vitriol.  I did so with one hope in my heart, to find some way to tone down the hate and violence.  I did say, “The Black Soul” and I don’t know how to avoid that assertion or allegation based on the things said and done by Leftist over the past few months.  I’m sure that there were those on the Right who wished similar things for Barack Obama but I did not hear them.  Today, I hear them virtually every day and rather than the Media, Democrats, RINOs, and Hollywood elitist being outraged over the terribleness of their rants, they smile, wink, and often endorse or justify them.

America has more than a political problem.  America has a deep spiritual and moral problem and the depth runs so deep I’m not sure we can bridge the chasm and heal the wounds.  I pray that we can and know that nothing short of a mighty move of the Spirit of God transforming hearts we will not see the desired healing.  There have been calls for God to kill Donald Trump, prayers that he would die, and abhorrent wishes on his family and by association all conservatives and Republicans.  That is troubling!

When a Pulitzer Prize winner who writes to our children openly expresses his daily wish that President Trump would suffer a massive stroke and be carried out of the White House on a gurney and little is said about, the blackness of the soul surfaces.  Michal Chabon while on Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation radio, he asked the host Goes Pinto to help get rid of Trump.  His tweet is as follows: “Every morning I wake up and hope that this is the day trump is going to have a massive stroke.”  I would have difficulty allowing any child or grandchild of mine read anything he has or writes in the future.  That kind of hatred has no place in any society and reflects a serious soul condition from which many seem to be suffering.

We are aware of Kathy Griffin’s attempt at humor if it was humor she was attempting. Humor that descends into such darkness as holding a bloody fake bloody head of the president is dangerous and disgusting.  I’m sure she felt safe among her liberal friends and felt that everyone would give her a pass.  She did not get one and no one else should.  Jim Carrey attempted to defend Griffin’s stunt and he has demonstrated some incredible darkness at times as well.  Madonna joined the anti-Trump Women’s March on Washington in January and threatened to blow up the White House.  She even called for revolution.  We must not omit Snoop Dogg and his video in which he pulls out a gun and executes a fake Donald Trump.  Then little doggie Bow Wow didn’t want to be left out so he went after the First Lady, suggesting pimping her making her a prostitute for them.  The Arts were not to be left out for in Shakespeare in the Park and the dressed-up Julius Caesar as Donald Trump and murdered him.  Rosie O’Donnell wanted to have Barack Obama declare martial law and delay the inauguration until Trump was cleared of all charges.  Of course, the Democrats would never clear him of anything so we would have had another four years of Barack Obama.  How about Sarah Silverman who called for the military to join the left and overthrow the government.  Charlie Sheen has openly desired the death of President Trump and tweeted after the death of Carrie Fisher and her mother Debbie Reynolds saying: “Dear God; Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Trump next, please! Etc.”  Of course, Robert De Niro never ceases his rants against Trump.  Then the not funny Stephen Colbert used vile language regarding the President including sexual abuse of him by Vladimir Putin.  Larry Wilmore, before he was let go from Comedy Central, fantasized about suffocating Donald Trump and then insisted that his threat was to be taken literally. Michael Moore declared that he wanted the disruption of the inauguration and said, “There should be no peaceful transition.”

Those are a handful of the many expressed wishes of public figures who have some influence or are seeking influence over the public encouraging violence, murder, rape, and mayhem in America.  That is what I mean by the blackness of the soul.  I opposed Barack Obama from day one and detested much of what he did but I did not call for his death or wish harm on his family.  I realized and realize that God sets up kings and takes them down.  Although we do not have a king in America there is the ever-growing danger of tyranny and the larger and more powerful the government grows the less free the citizens are.  AMERICA can only be the land of the free so long as the brave are willing to confront this kind of evil in the civil means available.  We must become intercessors for America and we do not have the luxury of being political spectators.  We must confront the lies with truth and confront the hate with love.  THAT IS GOING TO BE A DIFFICULT ROAD but a necessary one.

God, bless you and God bless America!

 

 

 

 

 

IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD…


BLOG POST 6 - Mad Mad Mad World

I know that is the title of a movie of some years ago and the slapstick comedy was hilarious and ridiculous.  The madness of our present world is anything but funny and is assuredly not a comedy, it is a life or death struggle for many.  There are times when it is impossible to determine who the players are and what team they are playing on with the ever-evolving positions politicians take.  Determining the position of the Hollywood types is not that difficult because, for the most part, they are liberal leftists.  The MSM are easy to identify because other than a handful of outlets or voices they are also super liberal leftists.  The Democrats are easy because regardless of what their constituency desires they vote and voice in harmony with the Establishment of their Party and Vote Far Left with incredible consistency.  The Republicans and Libertarians are less easily identified because they fluctuate from issue to issue and day to day.  Let me backtrack on that statement and say those of the ilk of John McCain, Lindsey Graham, Olympia Snow and the RINO, self-serving liberals of the Republican Party are Trump Haters of the highest order and may exceed the hatred of the Democrats.

Watching Congress, the MSM, Hollywood, Entertainers, Climate Change Activist, and Terrorist clearly reveals that our world has gone completely mad.  My Dad called it “Horse Sense” and if he was alive today he would be fully convinced that Washington is totally devoid of sense and the only part of a horse being exhibited is the South end of a Northbound one.  We had eight years of ‘fundamental transformation’ or ‘fundamental dismantling’ of America and when a President assumes power who is willing to tackle some of those issues and revoke the actions of destruction he is deemed Lucifer incarnate and a danger or menace to society.  When the President calls out those free-loaders in NATO who are not carrying their load, he is deemed an enemy to peace and a shill for Russia.  When the President pulls out of the Paris Accord, an agreement that was not constitutionally entered into with Congressional consent he is a denier, a flat earth society member, a hater of people, and an enemy of the environment.  The agreement was bad for America and bad for the world and based on faux science, not genuine provable data.  Even some liberal scientist has consented that our pulling out will not have any appreciable effect on ‘global warming’ or ‘climate change.”  I contend it will have none because of man’s involvement in the problem if there is one, is minimal.  However, the haters will continue to hate and look for anything to bring discredit to the president.

Hillary Clinton cannot cease blaming everything under the sun for her losing the election except herself, the previous eight years under Barack Obama, and the policies and positions of the Democrats.  Heaven forbid that she and the Left should acknowledge this was a rejection by the American people, not the Russian Federation.  Even James Clapper and every other person with information acknowledge there is no evidence of collusion with the Russians or that the Russians actually affected the outcome of the election.  I am not sure that we will ever get to the bottom of the hacking or the many potential players involved and there is certainly no definitive evidence and very little circumstantial possibilities that any of them were aligned with the Trump Team trying to defeat Hillary.  The Russian Leader, Putin wanted to pay Hillary back for her involvement in trying to defeat him and he was unconcerned about who her opponent was.  The investment of Hillary and her people in Russian dealings are matters that should raise eyebrows but since she lost the idea is, “nothing to see here, move on.” 

It seems in America today we are more concerned about the feelings of Muslims and Islamic Terrorist than the lives of unborn babies.  We are more concerned with the plight and flight of refugees and those seeking to come to America, legally and illegally than we are protecting American citizens.  We have an economy that has been decimated by Democrat policies and the attempts to rectify it are deemed actions to enrich the rich and harm the poor.  The Left will never acknowledge that if we fix the terrible tax code, remove regulations that are stifling the ability of business small and large to expand, secure our borders, deal with Obamacare positively, and have a strong military to enhance our ability to have a strong foreign policy we will better America.  Horse Sense, as my Dad called it, is too logical and rational so we must pursue the inane diatribe and rhetoric that is spilling into the streets and pushing us to the brink of anarchy.  That should concern every American.  We didn’t take to the streets under Obama.  Sadly, Republicans stayed home in the 2008 and 2012 elections and allowed Barack Obama to ascend to the Presidency and do the damage he has done.  In 2016 many Republicans decided they would rather continue that destruction than support Donald Trump and amazingly he still won.  Some have called the assertion that this was the result of prayer and the presence of God’s hand is apostasy.  I believe the Bible when it says that God sets up kings and takes them down.  Yes, I believe that God allowed Barack Obama to become president due to the apathy and attitude of America.  I also believe that He heard the prayers of the millions who cried out, “Enough!” 

We live in a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World and the only solution is to engage in Horse Sense and Prayer.  We can see the Republic restored and protected from the ravages of the Liberal Leftist.  We cannot achieve that objective through apathy, passivity, or failure to become involved.  America needs her Patriots today as much as ever.  WILL YOU STEP FORWARD FOR AMERICA?

 

God, bless you and God bless America!

 

IS THE DEMOCRAT STRATEGY FALLING APART?


BLOG POST 10 - Strategy

What strategy might that be?  It is multipronged but seems to be focused on destroying Donald Trump in any way possible.  They have been harping for months now that the vacant seats in Congress vacated by those who accepted positions in the Trump administration were going to show the Democrat Power and how America was already fed up with Donald Trump.  It was to be a rousing endorsement of their resistance and refusal to even attempt to work with the Republicans in Congress.  It was to be an endorsement of the Summer of Resistance in which we were to have more of the rioting, demonstrating, looting, and bashing of anyone and anything conservative.  It was to be a silver lining in the cloud pointing to a resounding Democrat thrashing of Republicans in November 2018.  Of course, that could still happen but what has happened is also important.

The Race in Georgia was going to propel Jon Ossoff to a win and signal a change in the political landscape in Georgia and the rest of the nation in favor of Democrats.  It failed and was the most expensive Congressional Race in history where the Democrats funneled multiplied millions from all over the world into the campaign.  The MSM pundits were salivating and the Democrats in Congress were shouting victory and counting their chickens before they hatched.  So far the Democrats have ZERO in wins in the special elections they thought they could flip.

I have said for some time that the Trump Derangement Syndrome that virtually all the Democrats, Progressives, Liberals and RINOs have become infected with is dangerous for the Republic.  It is not simply a matter of liking or not liking Donald J. Trump it is a matter of our Republican Representative Democracy and the Constitution.  The Tea Party was birthed in opposition to the policies of Barack Obama and the Democrats and proved to be an effective grassroots organism, not just an organization that drew people from all walks of life into the fold.  It shifted the House from Democrat control and later the Senate.  I believe the Tea Party was very instrumental in maintaining that power in Congress and putting a Republican in the White House.  The danger that I see is that if Republicans in Congress do not develop a spine and follow through with a plan and strategy to fulfill many of the campaign promises the Democrats will gain momentum and flip seats in 2018 and 2020.

The Progressives have been claiming they have a Progressive Tea Party, although being Taxed Enough is not their mantra or belief, but a coalition of resistance to defeat the Republicans and Donald Trump.  I believe that has yet to become a reality and there is splintering in the Democrat ranks.  The Trump Derangement Syndrome is real and dangerous and the fruit of it was evidenced in the shooting of a Republican Congressman in Washington and other incidents where violence against conservatives has been evidenced.  Unlike the Tea Party Movement which was non-violent and sought to win at the ballot box by informing, energizing, and empowering enough people the Progressive Movement and Trump Derangement Syndrome seeks to overturn the election by violence or any means possible.  Do you remember Barack Obama telling his supporters to get in people’s faces, argue, and he said, “If they bring a knife to the fight we will bring a gun?”  Guess what?  That is what is happening even when our side is not bringing a knife they are bringing knives, guns, and clubs.  That is not what this country was established to be and not a provision of the 1st Amendment.  It is anarchy and in no way, resembles any kind of democracy or republic.  It is destructive and counterproductive.

The Tea Party, to the best of its ability, sought to purge itself of dangerously zealous elements that wanted to resort to violence.  Those of us who could easily identify with the message of the Tea Party believed that type of action would pollute our message, hurt our cause, and damage the Republic.  We knew that the MSM would portray us as bigots, racist, terrorist and we were called such names by the press and politicians including some high-ranking ones.  I am convinced that if the Progressives fail to develop a genuine message that resonates across a very broad spectrum they will never develop a Tea Party type movement they must have to strip the Republicans of power.  It could happen and I am praying it will not.  I am concerned about 2018 and 2020 not because of Donald Trump but because Congressional Republicans are failing to demonstrate cohesiveness and coalesce around the promises made on the campaign trail.  Americans are angry and fed up with Congressional Failure and if they fail they will pay and when they pay and that will mean AMERICA suffers.

It is my hope and prayer that the Republicans will unite and somehow purge their ranks of some of the members who are willing to destroy the Party and damage the Republic to continue their Anti-Trump stance and rhetoric.  You may detest Donald Trump, you may love him or be ambivalent toward him, that is a personal choice.  However, I pray that we can set aside our differences on the man and focus on the nation long enough to enact some much-needed legislation that will secure our borders, strengthen our national defense, bring about genuine tax reform, restore the economy, deal with healthcare, and much more.  DO SOMETHING POSITIVE and stop allowing the Democrats to control Congress as a minority party.  If there are Republicans who will not join the effort to do what needs to be done, end this senseless expedition to oust Trump and work for us, LET’S SHOW THEM THE DOOR.  We have a window of opportunity to turn this train around but it is, in my view, a very short and narrow window.  TODAY IS THE DAY and NOW IS THE TIME.

God, bless you and God bless America!

 

THE SWAMP IS STRIKING BACK – “Who Is Going to Guard the Guardians?”


BLOG POST 1 - Swamp

I don’t like to engage in soundbite snippets and slogans but what is happening in Washington is so outlandish and dangerous it should cause everyone to take note and become concerned.  However, the Left, Liberals, Progressives, and Never Trump crowd are applauding while many Republicans in Congress are largely sitting on their hands or cowering in the shadows.  We need to carefully consider what has transpired with former FBI Director Comey and the Special Prosecutor or Investigator Muller.  THIS IS DANGEROUS and not just because they are going after Donald Trump but because of the damage, this can and likely will do to the Republic.

From time to time, even news agencies and newspapers who are not normally friendly to Donald Trump get it right, as did the Wall Street Journal recently.  They had a headline that read: “Robert Muller’s Mission” – The special counsel needs to rise above his Comey loyalties.  PRECISELY!  But, I have no real hope he or those behind him will.  I say that for several reasons, not the least of which is his close ties and friendship with James Comey.  Birds of a feather tend to flock together and the brotherhood of bureaucracies tends to be joined at the hip in protecting their own and destroying any and all threats to their position and power.

James Comey, admitted, under oath that he LEAKED a memo with the specific intent of securing the appointment of a special counsel against Donald Trump.  It was just days after that leak that his good friend Robert Muller was appointed to investigate Donald Trump for “Obstruction of Justice”.  The ever-changing story of James Comey and the never-ending pursuit of the Democrats to find anything they can use against the President opens the door to a Pandora’s Box in the Swamp that no American should desire.  YES, we want to have truth and an unbiased impartial investigation is perfectly fine, but that is not what is taking place.  Vendettas are not only undesirable they are dangerous. You can challenge that statement but I ask that you allow me to lay the foundation for my hypothesis before you toss it out as a mere conspiracy theory.

How many recall that Robert Muller as Director of the FBI joined James Comey Deputy Attorney General in threatening to resign in 2004 over President George W. Bush’s antiterror wiretaps. Imagine that!  They opposed the something very closely akin to that which Mr. Comey has used to try to find dirt on Donald Trump.   As FBI Director, Mr. Muller was deeply involved in the debacle in 2006 which led to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that his FBI raid had violated the Constitution’s Speech or Debate Clause. Interesting, isn’t it?  The FBI was doing things outside the Constitution’s guidelines and now this violator of the Constitution is trying to use the Constitution to investigate Donald Trump on weak if not totally bogus grounds.

We have reports from sources such as the Washington Post citing five or more unnamed officials claiming that the President is being investigated for obstruction of justice over his firing of James Comey.  His act was squarely within the guidelines of the Constitution but since it is Donald Trump it is nothing short of treason, according to the Left and others who hate Trump.  Then almost immediately unnamed sources advised the Jared Kushner is also under investigation.  The continual leaks, innuendos, rumors, and allegations are at best immoral if not illegal.  They all seem to be coming from sources directly connected to the Special Counsel’s investigation and team.

Justice Antonin Scalia warned of the monster of special counsels and articulated the reality that they possessed some powers and advantages that even the Attorney General did not.  He warned that an overzealous and unaccountable independent counsel could pick his targets and then prosecute them for the most minor or technical offenses.  He saw it becoming nothing more than a political tool to attack political enemies.  The Supreme Court Decision to disallow the Reagan challenge, Scalia warned, would weaken the Presidency and expose the executive branch to ‘debilitating criminal investigations’.  He was right and now he is gone.

There has been ZERO evidence that any collusion between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin in the 2016 election but still we hear RUSSIA STOLE THE ELECTION.  How about Hillary Lost the Election instead?  But some of the people Mr. Muller has elected to have join his team are possibly the most poignant proof of my assertion that this is not a genuine investigation but a fishing expedition with one purpose – DESTROY DONALD TRUMP.  It would be a useful pursuit to unearth who Michael Dreeben is.  What is his purpose?  There is only one, “make a case for impeachment.”  He has also added Andrew Weissmann, how oversaw the Enron Task Force and secured the conviction of the Arthur Andersen accounting firm.  Please note that the SCOTUS unanimously overturned that conviction, but left the 28,000 U.S. employees in the cold.  Mr. Weissmann is also a contributor to Hillary Clinton and his legal work has been questioned and criticized.  These are fair and impartial participants?  If so, then the Fox should be considered safe to guard the henhouse.  There are more people that raise red flags such as Jeannie Rhee, a lawyer for the Clinton Foundation.  How can anyone claim this is or will be a fair, unbiased, and impartial investigation?  I use the term “Fishing Expedition” but President Trump is not off base when he calls it a “Witch Hunt.”

What we have is a clear example of the Swap Denizens going on the offensive and forming an alliance designed to TAKE DOWN THE PRESIDENT.  They do not care what their actions might do to the Constitutional Republic.  Their primary interest is their position, power, and purse and that is far more important to them that the Republic.  America, it is totally up to us to make our voices heard.  It is up to you and me to make enough noise that those in D.C. cannot ignore us and then in 2018 take action that will back up our words by sending enough of them home to get their attention.  Are you up for the task?  America is standing in need, “Ask not what your country can do for you but ask what you can do for your country.”

God, bless you and God bless America is my desire and prayer!
