FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED PHILOSOPHY…


I believe the condition of politics in America today is the fruit of a fundamentally flawed philosophy being advanced and perpetuated.  No, I am not absolving those of us on the right and saying, we are ‘flawless’, but the religion of toxic liberalism is a flawed philosophy.  It can only end badly for them and us if it is allowed any success in the shaping of our government and thereby our society.

This condition is beyond serious and has become a crisis of epic proportions.  The prophetic failures of the Leftists doomsday prognosticators are driving them over the cliff into philosophical insanity.  When you have a religious cult that believes the rest of the world is evil and insists that failure to heed their warnings and ascribe to their agendas is certain doom, you have a serious problem that is not easily handled.

Religious cultists, such as those following the toxicity of liberal thought and philosophy believe that they are the only true guardians of hope.  Sadly, when the followers of a failed and flawed ideology discover their prophecies have failed, they don’t amend their thinking and rejoin reasoned society.  Instead they double down on their prophecies and insist that they simply did not read the tea leaves closely enough and their calculations were off by a decade or so, but their warnings are still valid.  Sadly, the only validity of their prognostications is in their flawed philosophical minds.  That makes them doubly dangerous.

Climate Change Activists insist that we are a doomed world because of human beings. Their rantings often sound as if they do not believe they are also human but above that lowly distinction which can only be applied to the unbelievers who reject their prophecies and religion.  The Gun Control Activists insist that if we could ban ‘assault rifles’ (not a true distinction of the guns they seek to ban) there would be no more gun violence.  Their failure to connect and apply the human element in the equation is illogical and poses a serious threat to our inalienable rights as a people.

The Abortion on Demand Proponents insist that aborting an unwanted baby in the womb is nothing more than the removal of an unsightly growth on the body or the discarding of an unwanted piece of clothing.  They fail to include true medical science into the discussion and call this women’s health and a woman’s right to choose.  That unprotected and innocent life in the womb has no defense, but as those on the Left insist, is not a human being while in the womb.  God views that differently as does true medical science and so do I.

California and New York City have passed laws to decriminalize petty crimes which often lead to serious and deadly crimes.  We have cities across our homeland that have opted to become Sanctuary Cities for illegals including those with a history of violent crimes.  That has led to rape, murder, and other violent crimes against legal American citizens.  Yet, they follow their flawed philosophy that we are all citizens of the world and if someone is in America, they are deserving of all the rights, fruits, benefits, and protections of the United States.  Their flawed philosophy is destroying the Republic, weakening our national sovereignty, and endangering Americans as well as burdening beyond reason our economic and judicial system.

The world of the Left is another world than the one those of us living in the real world experience.  The late, Sir Robert Scruton wrote: “Leftwing people find it very difficult to get on with rightwing people because they believe that they are evil.  Whereas I have no problem getting on with leftwing people because I simply believe that they are mistaken.”  Although I largely agree with him, I must acknowledge some in today’s political climate seems to have ventured beyond mistaken into the throes of evil.

Those on the Left who are following the flawed philosophical view of today’s toxic liberal agenda believe they can ‘fundamentally transform’ our society into their Utopian vision.  They insist they are attempting to create a world of equality, fairness, justice, and rid the world of the evil of racism, sexism, and the many phobias inflicting society.  They believe that it is their obligation to rid society of all conservative thought that is contrary to their worldview.  If that means reeducation camps or elimination of those on the Right, they believe that is their divine mandate.  Their religion demands it and their prophets predict doom if they do not.  Therefore, they follow the ideology that they are right, the world is wrong and must be forced into compliance.

I also see doom for America and the world UNLESS!  The Unless, is where I differ from the Leftist Prophets of Doom.  The Unless, I believe applicable is vastly different from their unless.  They believe that everyone must be forced into compliance with their toxic brand of liberalism.  I, on the other hand, believe that we must return to our founding principles which include recognition of God’s Divine Providence in our beginning and longevity. 

The Left has left behind those who were a part of their political party who believe in God and morality.  They have now rejected God, moral sanity, national sovereignty, and inalienable rights of the individual.  They have become devoted followers of a religion that gives all power to the government and none to the individual.  I, on the other hand, believe as did our Founders that God’s hand has been upon this nation from the beginning.  I believe that the only hope for America and the world is embodied in 2 Chronicles 7:14 and that our hope is to repent of our sins, which are many.  Our only hope is to pray for God’s mercy and guidance, which is sorely needed. 

Our hope is in returning to our moral moorings and when we do, we will see a renewed strengthening of the home and family and in that will come civility, personal responsibility, and respect.  Our hope is to recognize that we are all unique individuals and none of us think alike or desire exactly the same thing in life.   I do not want to live in a world where everyone is a cutter version of everyone else.  I like individuality and creativity.  I like having the freedom to pursue different objectives and dreams.  That is what America was and what America needs to return to being.  Our true hope is in God not government. 

We can follow the Flawed Philosophy of today’s toxic political world or we can return to personal responsibility, accountability, and moral sanity.  What we decide will affect our vote in future elections and our future as a nation and as individuals.  I take the position that Joshua took in his final address to the nation of Israel in Joshua 24:15. He said, in essence, “If you think it unacceptable to serve God that’s your choice, but as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”  I am what I am today because of my faith and relationship with God.  I am what I am today because I grew up in a strong family where there was viable and definitive parental involvement.  I am what I am today because I believe that “All men are created equal and have certain inalienable rights which include Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.” 

I choose Freedom and believe in Independence!  I reject the Religion of the Flawed Philosophical Philosophy of today’s Toxic Liberalism.  I stand with the President and will vote to continue our journey to a restored America in November 2020.  I hope you join me in that vote.

God bless you and God bless America!

WHEN FACTS AND REALITY DO NOT SUPPORT YOU – Make Stuff Up…


That is clearly the modus operandi of the Democratic Party, the Main-Stream Media, Hollywood, the Pundits and Activists who hate President Trump.  Hey, facts are unimportant to the Leftists.  I am reminded of the words of John Adams in 1770 as he was charged with defending the British soldiers involved in the Boston Massacre.  He said,I will enlarge no more on the evidence, but submit it to you, gentlemen—Facts are stubborn things; and whatever may be our wishes, our inclinations, or the dictates of our passions, they cannot alter the state of facts and evidence: nor is the law less stable than the fact. If an assault was made to endanger their lives, the law is clear, they had rightly killed in their own defense.” 

I won’t get into the historic investigation as to who said “Facts are stubborn things” but Adams’ use of it was profound and effective.  The words of Daniel Patrick Moynihan are also germane.  He said, “Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”  His Democratic Party has largely abandoned that philosophy as have too many politicians, virtually all the Main-Stream Media, the Hollywood elitists, and those who seek to ‘fundamentally transform America’ and ‘destroy the current president.’  But, alas, facts are facts and truth is truth.  In our system of government and jurisprudence that must remain a core principle or we lose all that we have enjoyed and fought for over the centuries. 

The ludicrous charges that have been brought against President Trump and others associated with him are often devoid of any semblance of fact or truth.  They hinge upon preference, dislike, distaste, and the thirst for vengeance and power.  The three-year trek that led to the impeachment and the Senate trial was promoted using ‘fear’ and ‘paranoia.’  After, all President Donald Trump is Lucifer incarnate and the most dangerous man on the planet.  Well, that’s how they see him or want us to see him. 

When facts and reality do not support your argument you either acknowledge that you have no case and move or you ‘Make Stuff Up.’  That’s where we are in today’s political climate – Stuff is Continually Being Made Up!  That is detrimental to our System of Government, America, all Americans, and our Hope of Survival as the Free Constitutional Republic.   Today, they are going beyond anything they have done in the past and the only way it ends is if we oust the lot of them in November.  Will we do that?  Can we do that?  The answer to both is ‘unlikely.’

The self-important Anderson Cooper of CNN and his ilk are and have been in full bore Fear Mongering.  They have no facts therefore they must resort to fanning the flames of fear and giving breeding ground to paranoia beyond anything we have witnessed in modern history.  They are crying to their cameras and into their microphones hoping to influence all who do not or incapable of thinking for themselves into believing that Trump has or is destroying America. 

Cooper and others insist that if Trump could he would arrest and jail all reporters, as if they were reporters.  They seem to forget the fact that it was Obama that weaponized the government against reporters he did not like, not Trump.  Cooper has taken it to a new level and is insisting that President Trump is ‘weaponizing the military.’  He is attempting to frighten people into believing that Trump is a tyrant attempting to suspend all elections, toss out our Constitution and transform America into a banana republic.  Wait, Mr. Cooper, who promised to ‘fundamentally transform America?’  Was that not your hero, Barack H. Obama not Donald J. Trump?  Trump promised to restore the oversight to the people in total contrast to what your Party and hero threatened and desires.

I watch with some amusement at the total chaos of the Democrats in their pursuit of finding an opponent to oppose President Trump in November.  In the previous election, they stacked the deck against Bernie Sanders in favor of their anointed one, Hillary Clinton.  It is déjà vu all over again as the evidence keeps surfacing that the deck is, once again, being stacked against Crazy Bernie. 

But, just for grins, let’s suppose that Bernie prevails and becomes the nominee and then somehow wins the election becoming the 46th President of these United States of America.  No, I do not believe that will happen, but just suppose it did.  Many have argued that there is no way that Bernie could ever get his proposal passed and enacted into law.  I disagree!

However, I will concede that it would require his party also having control of the Senate and the House but suppose he had all those.  He would dump all parliamentary procedures and use reconciliation beyond any usage this far.  He would force through his agenda and even if he only had 50 Senators in the Senate who could deny that turn-coats like Romney and Left-leaning Senators like Collins and Murkowski would not be tempted to take the Democrat’s bait? 

If Bernie were to become President, he would have his own ‘bully pulpit, a totally compliant media, and shamefully subservient Democratic Party’ at his behest.  That would not bode well for America, our Republic, our People, and our System of Government.  It would be ‘goodbye free-market capitalism’ and ‘hello Socialism and Communism.’ 

When you toss into the mix the deep-pocketed billionaire from New York, Michael Bloomberg who is either trying to buy the nomination or control who is nominated and the party, you have evidence of a Party in total disarray.  Bloomberg’s wealth is a factor because money talks and when money talks, integrity, sanity, and facts often walk. 

Bloomberg is spending money like it grows on trees, and for him, the pockets are so deep what he spends is hardly noticed so it continues.  He is forcing the party that is supposedly anti-billionaires and wants to tax them into non-existence to embrace him and those like him.  If the American people cannot see through that, then we may deserve what we get.  No, millions of us do not deserve it but if we do not prevail, we and those who vote for him and the Democrats will all pay the price.  None will be exempt.

Bloomberg, Biden, and others have used their money or government money to assure their objectives – ‘Quid Pro Quo’ but Trump is impeached under that charge.  Isn’t that a bit hypocritical?  The IG reports the violations of both the Law and ethical standards by McCabe and the DOJ decided, ‘nothing to see here’ and allowed him to walk free.  That suggests that the Deep State is still in control of what happens.  That does not bode well for America if we do not keep the White House, the Senate, and retake the House of Representatives. 

America, our Freedom is hanging in the balance and we must never lose sight of the reality that the modus operandi of the Left is, “When the Facts and Reality Do Not Support Your Position – Just Make Stuff Up.”  We must help them find other employment on November 3, 2020.

God bless you and God bless America!

NOT A FAN OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE…


In some ways that is a classic understatement regarding my view of the FED or most of the federal bureaucracies as they now exist and function.  But the power of the FED and its incredible impact on American lives and fortunes makes it a creature worthy of careful scrutiny.

I agree with those who contend that the Federal Reserve is one of the least understood agencies in America.  I am on board with those who are calling for a ‘full audit’ of the FED, something that has not happened in its more than 100-year existence.  Why or How could that be?  If it is allowed to go ‘unchecked’ and allowed to operate as its own lord and master, it will become an even more dangerous organism. 

Why would the FED seek to avoid an outside and fair audit?  Why is Congress negligent in fulfilling its ethical duties to America and demanding a full and fair audit of the FED?  You may disagree but I believe that our national sovereignty, economic viability, and freedom is connected to knowing the truth about the FED.  We have a right to know the truth, and while the Democrats are hell-bent on destroying Donald Trump, they are complicit in protecting the FED, but so are most of the Republicans.  That places Congress in a position of complicity in the cover-up or sheltering from an examination of this entity.

The Constitution authorizes Congress to ‘coin money’ but does that also mean ‘create it?’  There is nothing, that I can find, in the Constitution that authorizes the government to establish a bank or cede its constitutional and extremely limited authority regarding money to any other entity, viz The Federal Reserve.  What is the hold the FED has over Congress and politicians?  What is the real power of the unelected entity that wields such incredible power in the fiscal fate of America?

Not to bore you with a history lesson but when the FED was created in 1913, the American dollar had a buying power of 100 cents and gold was valued at $20 per ounce.  In contrast, today the buying power of the American dollar is about 2 cents and the value of gold is appraised at about $1500 per ounce.  How or why did that happen?  Why such a dramatic shift?  What changed?

Let me ask, “Who owns the Federal Reserve?”  Another valid question is, “How does it operate?”  I suggest that virtually no one can fully or adequately answer those questions not even members of Congress and that makes it a frighteningly powerful organism that seems to have a life of its own.

Let me offer my opinion as to why Congress has not sought to ‘fully audit’ the FED and you can ponder it, trash it, agree with it, or reject it.  I only hope to cause you to think and question and hopefully, you will then pressure your elected officials to conduct a ‘full audit’ of the Federal Reserve and lay all the cards on the table.  Why has Congress ducked their responsibility to audit?  I believe it is a bottom-line issue.  No, not America’s bottom line, but the coffers of those in Congress.  Money talks and buys loyalty and silence possibly more than fear. 

After a little research into the archives of information, I found the interesting morsel of information that in 1993, the Chairman of the Federal Reserve Alan Greenspan revealed that there were 189 economic ‘experts’ working for the FED.  That was not the end of the enormity of the entity.  He revealed that there were an additional 171 who held jobs at its regional offices.  But alas, that was the tip of the iceberg and an additional 370 were employed as statisticians and support staff.  Then, we discovered that the 209 professors who taught various FED endorsed economic fantasies in our universities received 305 contracts as an inducement to defend the Federal Reserve.  Again, money talks and buys loyalty.  Who wants to bite the hand that feeds them or looks the gift horse in the mouth?

That would be concerning enough but today the number of grants and salaries issued by the FED has grown exponentially.  How much is debatable and the support of the FED by the ‘experts’ is so extensive one economics professor lamented, “It is nearly impossible to get an article on the FED accepted for publication?”

It should be of considerable concern that only two unelected bureaucrats at the Federal Reserve can decide who can receives trillions of dollars in loans without even consulting Congress.  The Board of Governors of the FED has the power to bypass the congressional appropriations appropriation process and make loans to individuals, partnerships, and corporations that are ‘unable to secure adequate credit accommodations from other banking institutions’ providing there are ‘unusual and exigent circumstances.’

Before 2002, at least five of the seven FED governors had to authorize such action but in 2001 the law was amended after 9/11 so that if there are less than five governors in office those loans could be authorized by a ‘unanimous vote of all available members in office – if at least two members are available.’  That is a terrible decision. 

I asked several people mostly liberals and a few conservatives, “what is the Federal Reserve?”  What I heard, almost uniformly, was, “It is a government agency that creates all of the money to run the United States.”  That is a gross misconception and, in my view, a dangerous one.  The Federal Reserve is a private corporation controlled by bankers, and that means it operates for the financial benefit of those bankers not the people of these United States.

The founders wanted the power and authority to coin money to be placed solely into the hands of the U.S. Congress, not some private entity.  They held the view that they must avoid what one European Banker suggested, “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes the laws.”

The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 passed on Christmas Eve was not a good Christmas gift for America but they gave us our lump of coal. In this Act, Congress gave away the power to create money and handed it over to a private corporation. 

I understand Jefferson’s concern about bankers because with the state of financial affairs and the power of the FED we are rapidly reaching a place where the government nor the people will actually own anything, and the bankers will own everything.  That will effectively enslave every American economically. 

We should heed Jefferson’s warnings.  He said, “If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issue of their private banks to control the issue of their money… the banks and corporations that will grow up around them (the banks) will deprive the people of their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered!”

We must be rescued from the yoke of High Finance and return the constitutional powers to the rightful places where ‘we the people’ have oversight.  We must return that power to the people we can vote in or out of office.  We do not have that power with the increasingly powerful FED.  Wake up America!  This is one of the many issues facing us and we are lost in the political wrangling about which party is the most partisan and should be in power.

God bless you and God bless America!

I AM OLDER THAN DIRT AND REMEMBER…


Well, I am not quite that old, but in the view of some of the younger generation, I am older than Methuselah.  I say that in light of some of the comments I have overheard or encountered by the Gen Z-ers and Millennials over the past couple of years.  I was standing in the check-out line behind two twenty-something young ladies and could not help but overhear their conversation.  One was lamenting that some ‘old dude’ at work was hitting on her.  In her tirade, she said, “He is really old, he must be at least 35 or 40.”  I laughed out loud and they glared at me.  The person at the register said, “You almost got in trouble, but I agree, they don’t know what old is.”

I remember America in the 1950’s.  I was born in the late 1940’s and grew up in the 1950’s and 1960’s so, I remember America as it used to be in my ‘Good Old Days.’  Let me paint a picture of my world which was on the brink of the assault of the Left on America, home and family, and basic morality and neighborliness.  I lived in the country, rural East Texas, but visited relatives who lived in some big cities and the world I saw then was not the Utopia the Democrats insist we can have or the crime and corruption of today. 

Imagine, if you can, a neighborhood that is largely comprised of low and middle-income families.  Imagine that neighborhood where there were two-parents in most homes, no homeless people on the streets, no drugs being sold on the street corners, and people could walk the streets at night unmolested and unafraid.  What?  You cannot imagine that world!  Well, that is the world I grew up in.  Of course, that may not have been your experience if you lived in Chicago or New York City, but in my world that was normal.

Imagine a public school where there was the Pledge of Allegiance, a Prayer, and a Bible verse read over the PA System.  Wait, you can’t?  Maybe you do not believe that should be allowed in public schools, but that was my world and I believe that I am a better man for it.  We may not have respected our elders as we should, but we did not dare demonstrate disrespect for not only would we encounter the ‘board of education’ at school but at home as well.  My parents commanded rather than demanded respect.  They did that through their lives.  We gave them our respect willingly.  Well, mostly willingly, many of us rebelled a little from time to time.

Open debate was welcome even if it was offensive, it was deemed a person’s right to hold and express their personal opinions.  I grew up at the beginning of what some have called a ‘cultural revolution’ and most assuredly the ‘sexual revolution’ of the 1960’s.  I was drafted in 1965 and served in the U.S. military serving a year in Vietnam in 1967.  I did not protest, burn my draft card and knew no one in my community who did.  We considered it our obligation and some of us considered it a privilege to serve our country as did our fathers and grandfathers before us.  That may not have been your world, but it was mine.

A paradigm shift to liberalism began in a noticeable way in the 1940’s or should I say, became a more serious agenda of the Left.  There was a very distinguishable loss of understanding of what could be called the ‘timeless constants of the fundamentals of life.’  Igor Stravinsky said in 1947, “We are living at a time when the status of man is undergoing profound upheavals.  Modern man is progressively losing his understanding of values in his sense of proportions.  This failure to understand essential realities is extremely serious.  It leads us infallibly to the violation of the fundamental laws of human equilibrium.”  That was not only insightful but powerfully prophetic and we have witnessed the culmination of that warming.

Although I do not fully ascribe to the philosophy embodied in the Serenity Prayer, it holds significant truth.  That prayer is, “God, grant me the grace to accept with serenity the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.”  Another philosophy we need to mention may have first been issued by Augustine, but many believe it was coined by the German Lutheran theologian, Rupertus Meldenius.  It is a philosophy that I have sought to incorporate into my own life.  That declaration is, “In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.”  We too often strain at gnats and swallow camels through our own personal biases and blindness.

In America, we have come to a philosophical position that many, especially those on the Left, embrace.  That attitude is, “Damn the Absolute!”  We moved from our moral moorings and our belief in absolutes to the abstract and insisted that there are no absolute truths.  We watched the rise of Western metaphysics and it crept into the churches as well as our educational system.

There are those who reject the notion of God, our Creation and Creator.  They follow the view of Friedrich Nietzsche who declared, “God is dead.” The quest to destroy all ‘absolutes’ has been an integral philosophy of the Left in their assault on what we were and what we can be.  Some of them ascribed to the philosophy, “If there were no God, one would have to be invented.”  They follow it up by saying, “That is what has happened.”  I reject that for I have encountered the Living God and know in my heart He is real. 

We do not need to invent God or even prove His existence it is everywhere apparent.  Most of the drive to prove there is no God only serves to further prove that He is.  What is needed is for everyone to awaken from our slumber and realize that where I world has evolved is not good.  Our streets are no longer safe, our children threatened on many fronts, and our freedom in the cross-hairs of totalitarianism and tyranny. 

You may not be old enough to remember America as I do but if we are to survive and thrive, we must return to our old landmarks.  No, we do not need to revive the terribleness of slavery, racism, or sexism but we need to return to the embracing of what our Founders embraced – GOD IS!  We need to recognize that everyone has inalienable rights that must be both acknowledged and protected.  We must restore freedom of Speech, Religion, and protect the sanctity of life. We must return to being, a nation of ‘limited government.’  We cannot allow the wrecking ball that is being swung against our republic to succeed. 

I ask that you join me in praying and working for America to be restored to being “One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”  Vote for America in November and against our destruction! 

God bless you and God bless America!

THE DEATH OF A NATION…


How do nations die?  The possible avenues for demise are more numerous than I can effectively articulate, but many of the signs of a dying nation are visible in today’s American politics.  I can almost hear the death rattle of our republic when I hear and see the antics of far too many in the political arena today.  No, I do not believe we are dead, but our need to make some corrections is too evident to ignore.

One of the ways a free nation dies is by losing its contact with the original purposes and any sense of moral sanity.  You may vehemently disagree that moral sanity is a required element.  You may reject my frequent assertions that Faith, Family, and Freedom are essentials to Liberty, Freedom, and the existence of a Constitutional Republic.  That is your privilege, but I stand firm in my beliefs.  Everything I believe in is solidly rooted in my faith in God and belief in the Bible, as it is written.

America was founded to be a nation that devotedly committed itself to the ‘rule of law.’  The idea and ideal of our Founders was that the law would be equally applied to all citizens regardless of their walk of life, and social or economic status.  They desired that the citizens ‘created equally and possessing certain inalienable rights’ would be an effective restraint and provide a powerful constraint over the power of politicians and politics.  We have failed in that sphere, but it is still a core principle in Republicanism.  Losing that power and oversight by the public opens the door for the death of a nation. 

America’s founding principles embodied and embodies the idea that all citizens and politicians are to live within the constraints of the agreed-upon and established law of our free republic.  It is evident that we have a multi-tiered judicial system and frequently that is redefined depending on which political ideology is in power.  That was not the intent of the founders nor is it consistent with the wording and meaning of our constitution.  Losing that or allowing that to transpire opens the door for the death of a nation.

How can the lawlessness that has transpired in the riots, upheavals, disturbances, and protests be viewed as unprosecutable by the feds? I find it disturbing that when any offense is committed by those on the Left they are excused but prosecution is demanded for any others. Is that not a tad hypocritical and is an abuse of both power and the constitution? 

How can a person with a national or international persona and platform be allowed to call for violent acts against a sitting president, his family, or those supporting him with impunity? How does that type of behavior not result in all citizens immediately demanding accountability under the law?  How can that be allowed when it is blatantly one-sided?  When that multi-tiered judicial system is in force that opens the door for the death of a nation.

When cities and states within the nation can ignore the law for some people and prosecute others who hold opposing agendas or political ideologies that are symptomatic of a disease that will kill freedom.  When politically favored groups are allowed to ravage the law and inflict harm and damage to person and property of those they oppose but the other side is held accountable under the full weight of the law, that is a symptom of a disease that leads to the death of a nation.  America, we are witnessing the abuse of power by members of Congress.  We are witnessing the double-standard of some in our national intelligence community and the federal law enforcement agencies that are endangering the republic.

When a president, as did Obama, publicly suggests that the police are the enemy of blacks, other people, and systematically racist that is problematic for freedom, civility, and liberty.  The empirical evidence does not support the charges by him and the myriad of Democrats who incite people to cheer when police are murdered on the streets. 

New York City faced a massive problem of lawlessness thirty years ago and then-Mayor Giuliani and police commissioner William Bratton enacted strict law enforcement policies that were known as ‘broken windows.’  Those policies were based on the collaborative works of criminologist George L. Kelling and political scientist James Q. Wilson who published an essay in The Atlantic 1982, called “Broken Windows.”  It turned New York City around for a time.  Sadly, those policies have been scrapped and the Left-leaning ideology has prevailed reversing the success and plunging that city into conditions of the past.  That type of practice opens the door for the death of a nation.

The results of the “Broken Windows” policing inspired police forces across the nation to adopt similar policies and improved the quality of life and safety of the citizens in many municipalities.  The current living conditions in many cities controlled by the toxic ideology of the liberal left has made them hell-holes and largely unlivable.  Thus, we are witnessing massive flight from the cities as people seek a saner and safer environment in which to live and raise their children. 

Today, the Democrats in power in Washington continue to seek to overturn a legitimate election and remove a lawful president because he impedes their ability to rule.  The clandestine operations they have conducted reveal the depth of the swamp and the expansiveness of the deep state and the clear and present dangers they present for our continued survival and life as a Free Republic. 

It is my hope and prayer that the current Attorney General, William Barr, and his special investigator or prosecutor Durham will honestly and definitively address the multi-tiered pathway this nation has been traveling.  I pray that they will be successful in re-creating an environment of effective deterrence against the decades of lawlessness that has been transpiring on the political front.  Misconduct by public officials must be addressed else the republic is doomed to the slow death of corruption where citizens are stripped of their liberties and all respect for the law is lost.  Failure to do that opens the door to the death of a nation.

We have drifted far from our moral moorings as a people.  We have drifted far from the moral values we held as a nation when I was a teenager.  Sadly, many have either become ambivalent, amoral, or atheistic in their view.  The family unit has suffered, the Bible devalued, human life not held precious, and freedom misunderstood.  If we fail to return to our moorings, we will witness the death of our republic, at least in its Constitutional form. 

The political correctness in existence today is an affront to the Bible and faith. It is incredibly destructive.  The push toward Socialism, redistribution of wealth, moral relativism, and the practice of situational ethics are deadly.  I am praying for a revival of patriotism, civility, and basic moral rightness and decency.  I love this republic too much to see her destroyed without fighting to preserve what God gave us.

God bless you and God bless America!

LET’S PLAY A WHAT IF GAME – What If I Was A Democrat and a Smart One?


I did that with a group of people I know, some Democrats, some Republicans, and a sprinkling of Libertarians in the mix and the reaction was as expected, mixed.  One of the Republicans laughed and said, “Smart-Democrat, that’s an oxymoron.”  A Democrat became angry and called me a racist.  A Libertarian, said, “No comment.” 

I had a point to make and after the group stopped pointing fingers at each other and all the insults died down, I proceeded with my intended points, hoping to inform some, persuade some, and empower some.  No, I do not think I am a particularly important figure in this fight for freedom, but I am one willing to stay in the trenches and fight to the finish.  If I can influence, inspire, enlighten, inform, encourage, or persuade even one, I consider it a victory. 

But if I were a Smart Democrat, I would not have taken the approach they have for the past three-plus years in their incessant and destructive approach to government. I believe they have made some key tactical errors and hopefully, it is backfiring on them.  I am cautiously optimistic that most Americans are far more politically astute than the media and most politicians believe.  If we are then 2020 will be a victory for America and an ouster of many followers of the lunacy of the new Democratic Socialist Agenda. 

What would I have done and how would it have been perceived?  Another consideration is how could I have argued that my Party was partly if not wholly responsible for the progress?  The Democrats, based on their actions, have no pathway to achieving either of those and have given President Trump the upper hand in the presentation or argument to the American people.  Rather than governing and taking care of America’s business, it appears that the Democrats have devoted 100% of their energy and attention to overturning the 2016 election.  How will that play out and was that a smart move?

It seems that each of the Democratic hopefuls all seek to deny the reality of the Trump economy and the benefit to America and Americans.  They all promise to fix the booming economy and return it to the Obama disaster. 

They deny the reality that our allies around the globe have stepped up to the plate and shouldered a larger load of the financial burden in defense.  They have ignored the reality that those nations ignored the style of Clinton, Bush, and Obama, but have responded positively to Trump, even with his ‘style’ the Left hates so much.  Strength is virtually always respected and pandering, and weakness detested.  Our enemies do not respect weakness and fear strength.  This president has operated from a position of strength and with America at the heart of his push.  Why is that good when other nations do it and bad when we do it?

Had the Democrats, who control the House of Representatives, taken positive and sensible actions regarding our infrastructure what would have happened?  I believe that the President would have worked with them, the Republicans would have joined in a bipartisan effort and America would have been the beneficiary.  

What have they done?  They have offered a 24/7/365 barrage of innuendos, allegations, and engaged in attempting to make Trump worse than Lucifer himself.  What has that gotten America?  Millions if not billions of wasted tax dollars spent.  The homeless situation, our veterans left wanting attention, our borders unsecured, and Americans endangered are some of the things we have gotten.  How is that a good platform for a political campaign?

How can the Democrats defend the new push for Socialism?  History is replete with examples of how Socialism has destroyed once prosperous nations and turned their economies into shambles and their people into poverty.  Sadly, our younger generation’s indoctrination by the toxic liberal philosophy in our Universities is bearing the fruit of fiscal ignorance and reality is glaringly absent.  Someone said, “Freedom unifies the soul.”  That is true in many ways and the absence of true history, the good, the bad, and the ugly of history is dumbing down our society in more ways than can be enumerated.  How is defending Socialism a winning platform politically in a Free Republic?

I continue to be amazed at the willingness of the Democrats to oppose giving parents, all parents, and children the ability to choose the best school to attend.  If a public school is failing, is propping it up with entitlements, grants, bailouts, and lowering standards the right move? 

I hear the Left harp about ‘white privilege’ and how our schools have been designed to teach whiteness leaving the various minorities in the shadows.  However, many of the minorities excel in education and blacks, given the opportunity to be exposed to ‘good education’ excel.  Why wouldn’t we want to close the bad schools, weed out the bad teachers, and provide the best possible education possible for the students? 

The push to decriminalize illegal entry into our country and open borders is indefensible for most Americans.  The glaring reality and indisputable facts of the the many dangers and crimes committed beyond the crime of illegal entry into America are of concern to all Freedom-loving Americans.  The Left continues to advance its agenda to strip America of its national identity and sovereignty.  Their position, in my mind, is beyond indefensible and borders on treason.  No, it would never qualify for that charge legally, but morally it does.

They are advancing a new piece of legislation, that few even know about.  It is the New Way Forward Act (H.R. 5383).  It is light-years worse than the disastrous proposal of Hillary Clinton in 2013 when she called for a “hemispheric common market” with “open borders.”  The Democrats, at least the ultra-leftist view America as a ‘rogue nation’ that needs to be brought to her knees.  Their push is to ‘fundamentally transform’ us and that means to destroy our Constitution, our Laws, our Institutions, our Freedoms, our History, and our Values.  We must conform to their worldview or be eliminated. 

This legislation introduced by the radicals in their Party is supported heartily by a whopping one-fifth of the Democrats in the House.  That is beyond troubling, it is frightening and reveals the position of the New Democratic Socialist Party in America.  This bill would entirely remake our immigration system, with the explicit purpose of ensuring that criminals are able to move here, settle here permanently with impunity. 

Let me list a few things this bill would do, and you decide if the Democrats are being smart or pro-America.  It would end automatic deportation for all crimes.  It would give immunity to aliens who falsify passports and protect them from deportation.  It would allow drug smugglers to immigrate here freely.  It would decriminalize illegal entry and abolish all enforcement of that crime.  It would mean that we have no borders and illegals could come and go as they please.  How is that a defensible platform to run on?

I cannot fathom any Christian or lover of Freedom buying the ideology of late-term and even post-birth abortions.  I oppose abortion, but I am opening the door a bit to question how anyone could conscientiously accept late-term or post-birth abortions.  How can you defend ‘Sanctuaries for Lawlessness?’ 

How can you defend the destruction of our Energy Industry?  You may be a total “greenie” and believe that all fossil fuels are bad but if you do a little research you will realize that to produce your ‘green energy tools’ you need the energy from fossil fuels to run those production plants.  Also, being Energy Independent makes us less dependent on any foreign nation and more independent, sovereign, and safer. 

You may hate Trump but I love his optimism and I agree that one of the best lines in His State of the Union address was: “In just three short years, we have shattered the mentality of American decline, and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny.”  If I was a Democrat and a smart one, I would never have allowed myself to become anti-progress while calling myself a progressive.  But, then being smart is not a natural trait of many politicians. Maybe ‘oxymoron’ is a proper description of what they are doing, you decide! I hope that is all it is and not deeply diabolical, but alas what we see is sometimes reality.

God bless you and God bless America!

THE AMERICAN SYSTEM OF GOVERNMENT IS WORTH SAVING…


At the risk of sounding like Captain Obvious, “I contend that our Republic and its republican form of government is worth saving.”  Those who value what we have in America and can see through the fog, smoke and mirrors of political jockeying largely agree with me.  There are those who have been so thoroughly indoctrinated by what is being called modern education and the insanity of political correctness may not.  No, they do not!  They have bought into the Unicorn Utopian Society that politicians like Bernie Sanders and the current crop of Democratic hopefuls are pushing. 

The never-ending source of laughs, Joe Biden, has denied that our present economic situation is real.  That’s right, he has insisted that it is all smoke and mirrors and the blue-collar worker is getting hammered.  But, if you will reach back just a few millimeters in your memory banks you will recall his declaration, “We choose truth over facts.”  What?  Isn’t truth supported by facts and aren’t facts truthful? 

Old Joe also said, “poor kids are just as talented as white kids.”  That caused comedian Seth Myers to joke that Biden apologized by saying, “Sorry that came out gay.”   His foot-in-mouth moments caused some of the Leftists comedians such as Colbert to joke that Biden also said, “We choose hope over, optimism, faith over belief, and synonyms over words that mean the same thing.” No, I did not say that he said all those things the comedians joked, but can anyone seriously consider him for president?

Bernie Sanders and the members of his paid staff have been outed in their views regarding gulags and how the rich and Republicans should be treated.  Those hot-mic moments and tweets have revealed an attitude that is frightening due to the depth they are willing to plunge to ‘re-educate’ those of us on the Right. 

The parade of Democrats lamenting the death of a terrorist from Iran and the continual willingness to aid and abet our enemies was and is deeply disturbing.  The attack of the Democrats on our System of Government and Economic System should send shudders down the spines of all Freedom Loving Americans.  I said, should, not does! 

Former President Obama kowtowed to the haters of America and displayed real anger towards anyone daring to question the motives of the Islamic jihadists, demanding that those radical followers of that religion were not Islamic.  Those jihadist clearly are Islamic. They may be fringe elements, but to deny their beliefs would be to bury one’s head in the sand.

The demand of the Democrats and those following the modern view of democratic socialism seek to eradicate our borders. The manner they treat those breaking and entering, thumbing their noses at our sovereignty and laws is deeply concerning and disconcerting. 

The Democrats began the push for Impeachment before the President was inaugurated and have spent over three years attempting to overturn the election.  They may say they do not, but they HATE him!  I suspect that their hate is the fruit of several roots not just personal animus against him as a person.  I suspect it is his success they hate, and his unwillingness to bow at their altar and get in step with the political elitists of both parties.  He is their nemesis and he is proving to America and the world, that you can get things done and resolve some problems economically, governmentally, and internationally.  He has, in the face of severe opposition and the virtual abandonment of his own party leaders, achieved incredible success.

I understand that those on the Left and those who detest him to the core of their being, HATE him!  I get that, and have a word of advice and even warning for any in that group who will listen.  “Stop backing Foreign Terrorists and Haters of America and Freedom!”  Those on the Left and some who claim to be on the Right that are backing our enemies over this president and this country should realize that you are being hypocritical. 

It is hypocritical and delusional to insist on rights for homosexuals, demand equal treatment of women, and things of that nature and back those nations and individuals whose religion is the opposite of those views.  Those nations and leaders that the Democrats have been vocal in support of have downed civilian airlines killing innocent people, treated women inhumanely and murdered homosexuals.  How do you back them?

Here’s my suggestion, “Quick backing our enemies and support America?” If you did you just might get people to listen to you and take you seriously.  I know that infuriates the sense of who they are, but for all the haters, “stop standing up for human vermin and stand for what is good and right.” 

But alas, hating Trump is popular in Leftists circles and if a person believes that the rise in the stock market is evil, low unemployment is bad, and less government is appalling then back the Democrats and campaign for them. 

If you believe that what Trump has done for America is bad and higher taxes are better than lower taxes, then by all means back, the current band of haters running on the Democratic side of the aisle.  Someone said, “If you don’t like what has transpired and don’t like the success and benefits of the past three-years then back the senile pappy of the promiscuous crack connoisseur, or the fake India, or the crusty communist, or that insufferable little weasel who is mayor of the Indiana equivalent of Barstow.”  That is your right as a Free American!  I think you are nuts but defend your right to be nutty as a fruitcake.

Our political system, our federal intelligence community, our federal law enforcement agencies, and many of our bureaucracies were weaponized under President Obama.  We are being destroyed from within and our enemies are laughing their heads off, realizing they do not have to do anything because we are showing signs of imploding.  The world is watching, and America should be. 

I might add, from my Christian perspective I know and believe that God is also watching. I am quite sure He is not amused.  I keep clinging to the belief that there are people who have heretofore voted Democrat that are patriots and served our country with dignity and honor.  I cannot believe that those individuals are not just as disgusted as those of us on the Right are with where our country is being pushed by the insanity of toxic liberalism.  They love America and I cannot help but believe that their skin crawls when they see members of their own party defending those that hate America.  I offer this to those individuals, “Come on over, the water is fine and there is room at the table for you.”

America, we are facing the most critical election in our history.  We are watching the systematic dismantling of our system of government, the rule of law, and the precedent-setting destruction of our Constitution.  We must prevent this from continuing and to do that we must DEFEAT every Democrat in November.  Well, every Democrat who will not stand for America and who sides with our enemies. 

God bless you and God bless America!
