IT’S TIME FOR ADULTS WITH ADULT IDEAS

Lately, I’ve tried to avoid Speaking about President Trump. In the past, I’ve tried to defend his policies and at times his statements but…Once bitten twice shy. I can only imagine how frustrating it must be for him. In large part, Republicans have a majority in both the House and Senate because voters liked the populist agenda that Trump was pushing so they also gave him the tools he would need to advance his agenda. But, it seems we were duped. For seven years The Republicans pushed for a repeal of Obamacare when there was no chance of success. Time after time they voted on a repeal knowing damned good and well that Obama would veto the bill. Suddenly, and surprisingly, they found themselves in a position to make real change but, alas, they hadn’t done their jobs. They hadn’t planned for what they would replace it with so now they are flopping around looking foolish.

As I said, it must be frustrating for our President but he isn’t helping himself by reverting to name calling on other issues. When he came out with the Rocketman tag when talking about the DPKR and their leader, Kim Jong-un I couldn’t help thinking that I viewed juvenile name calling juvenile even back when I was a juvenile…WHEW, say that three times fast. Now it seems he is focused on the NBA and NFL.

Please, Mr. President, tell me you aren’t squandering your time on sports and how best to insult others. With all of the real issues in this country and around the world, we could use a real adult leader.

Mr. President, please show us you can be better than that.

The state of the 1st Amendment

first-amendment

 

When making a list it would seem prudent to prioritize in order of importance, and so it was when the founding fathers drafted The Constitution of The United States of America. First, and with the highest priority, the Freedom of religion and the freedoms of speech and free press. These two together, speech and press, are commonly referred to as the freedom of expression.

Our freedoms of expression have been guaranteed to us, The People, not so we have the guarantee to speak and write of popular ideas but to protect those who hold less than popular ideas. But, that freedom is under attack by those who don’t understand the value of basic rights.

Across this nation, the majority of college students support the idea of a repeal of the First Amendment for a variety of reasons. At the top of the list is that they seem to think that any speech or idea that they don’t agree with is somehow hate speech and a form of micro-aggression. They feel threatened in the safe place they are trying to carve out for themselves.

If they don’t agree with a form of speech, whether it be spoken, written, or conveyed by some other medium they respond in a variety of ways ranging from attempts to threaten the speaker or writer to outright riots and violence toward people or property. In other words, by attempting to exercise their first amendment rights they violate others rights.

The first amendment only goes so far. One cannot threaten violence against another person and legally expect to be protected by the first amendment and one cannot intentionally damage property with an expectation of protection under the Constitution. One person or group’s rights cannot violate the rights of other persons or groups.

College students aren’t the only people who have actively tried to limit or revoke our freedoms. In 2013 Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), with help from Senator Durbin (D-IL) and Senator Schumer (D-NY), attempted to limit the right to free speech and the free press by stipulating what constitutes a journalist. Senator Feinstein attempted to introduce a bill before a Senate committee that tried to qualify journalist as those who work in an established media agency only, thereby revoking independent bloggers and freelance journalists from exercising their freedoms. Interestingly enough this came after she was outed by an independent blogger for using her position on the Appropriations Committee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development to funnel federal contracts, worth millions of taxpayer dollars, to her husband’s firm.

Take a tour of almost any college campus and you will see someone passing around a petition to limit someone or some groups’ right to free speech. A petition made possible by the first amendment.

Our rights allowed by the Constitution are under daily attack and unless we wise up and start paying attention to what’s going on in our local government and federal government we face a future with a far different set of rights. Remember, these same students of today are our leaders of tomorrow.

Thoughts on Immigration and the wall

pope and wallIn February 2016 Pope Francis tweeted “A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian. This is not the gospel,” This was a direct shot at then candidate Donald Trump’s pledge to build a wall along the US-Mexican Border.

It occurred to me at the time that Vatican City is a nation unto itself and the only nation in the world completely surrounded by a wall. Furthermore, Vatican City has a pretty harsh immigration policy. Basically, if you aren’t needed by the Catholic Church or the government then you are not allowed to immigrate there.

It also occurred to me that Muslim Terror attacks have not really affected the Papal nation-state. This is something to think about when contemplating immigration policy and terror in general. One would think that Vatican City would have a huge bullseye over it on all Jihadist maps of potential targets being the very heart of their rival ideology but it seems that, at least so far, it has been overlooked.

The Snake – Al Wilson

On her way to work one morning
Down the path along side the lake
A tender hearted woman saw a poor half frozen snake
His pretty colored skin had been all frosted with the dew
“Oh well,” she cried, “I’ll take you in and I’ll take care of you”
“Take me in oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman, ” sighed the snake

She wrapped him up all cozy in a curvature of silk
And then laid him by the fireside with some honey and some milk
Now she hurried home from work that night as soon as she arrived
She found that pretty snake she’d taking in had been revived
“Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman, ” sighed the snake

Now she clutched him to her bosom, “You’re so beautiful,” she cried
“But if I hadn’t brought you in by now you might have died”
Now she stroked his pretty skin and then she kissed and held him tight
But instead of saying thanks, that snake gave her a vicious bite

“Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman, ” sighed the snake

“I saved you,” cried that woman
“And you’ve bit me even, why?
You know your bite is poisonous and now I’m going to die”
“Oh shut up, silly woman,” said the reptile with a grin
“You knew damn well I was a snake before you took me in
“Take me in, oh tender woman
Take me in, for heaven’s sake
Take me in oh tender woman, ” sighed the snake

The Enemy Within

“A nation can survive its fools and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”

Marcus Tullius Cicero, in a speech to the roman Senate, 42 B.C.

Despite Brexit, Globalist EU Expands Transnational Military

Written by Alex Newman, The New American

 

                 Despite Brexit, Globalist EU Expands Transnational Military

Despite the historic Brexit vote and soaring anti-European Union sentiment across the bloc, unelected EU bosses are moving forward with a plot to create a continental military force answerable only to the unaccountable superstate. In a throwback to the days of European imperialism, EU policymakers are already plotting to use their newly approved EU military headquarters in Brussels to provide more help to globalist institutions such as the United Nations as they occupy various African nations under the guise of “peace.” And despite British voters demanding that ties with the superstate be severed, efforts are being made to ensnare the United Kingdom’s armed forces in the latest EU military scheme.

 

The latest shoe to drop in the EU’s quest to usurp national militaries was approved last week. Essentially, the move, approved by senior ministers, will establish a headquarters of EU military work that will be called the “Military Planning and Conduct Capability (MPCC) facility.” It will be located in the same EU building in Brussels that currently houses the “EU Military Staff.” Starting next month, the new “facility” will run three EU military missions in Africa helping to train, among others forces, globalist “peace” troops serving the EU-backed African Union currently being imposed on Africans by Brussels and the mass-murdering regime in Beijing.

 

But that is just the start, as EU officials have already made clear. An unnamed “senior EU official” speaking to the online EU Observer declared that, for now, the EU military HQ in Brussels would handle EU military missions’ “logistical, medical, legal, and communications’ needs.” By next year, though, the outfit might “take charge of military missions that have a combat element.” One example provided of EU military combat missions includes a scheme known as “Sophia,” described as an “EU naval operation designed to fight human smugglers in the Mediterranean Sea.”

Global Governance, a brief explanation

Global governance or Globalism is a hard topic to write about because for so long it was considered to be just the rants of the conspiracy theorist crowd. Anyone who was heard speaking of it was automatically lumped into this category and their creditability was damaged. The pace of the globalists was so slow that the average person never noticed what was going on around them. It’s sort of the hypothesis of the frog in the pot of water. If a frog is dropped into a pot of hot water he recognizes the danger and hops out. If that same frog is placed in cooler water he swims around, the temperature is turned up gradually and he fails to realize the danger until it is too late.

The globalist community believes that the wealth of industrialized nations should be spread to the third world countries. The wealth of the world should be spread evenly to all so all may prosper, worldwide Socialism. It is important to recognize that technology and information have as much value or more than money or resources. On its face, this is a beautiful thought and this is how they have gained so much support. History has shown us that if there is no winners and losers there are no compelling reasons to excel and so we stagnate. When we stagnate we all fall to the level of the lowest common denominator.

Has anyone else noticed that the major players in the globalist movement are all fighting tooth and nail to gain as much wealth and power as possible? One huge reason for this is that it is their plan that the elite will govern this One World Government and they all want to position themselves to be part of this unelected government body. You read that right, it will be an unelected governing body.

There are 196 countries in the world at present yet less than 50 are considered to be developing countries that leaves approximately 150 underdeveloped countries worldwide.  The ultimate goal of the globalists are for each country to have one representative and one vote and no one will have a veto vote. This means that three out of four nations covet our resources and knowledge so one can imagine how these votes will go. It goes much further than just stuff though, this governing body will also control trade and where our military may and may not go. Think about this, Iran and Somalia to mention just two will now have an equal vote in not only economic issues but military (peacekeeping and humanitarian) movements as well.

In upcoming posts, we will delve into who they are and how they have become the powers to fear and watch closely.

Where are our Stewards Priorities?

The big deal in Washington right now is whether the Russians involved themselves in the 2016 election. Congress and the media are going on non-stop about whether or not the Russians spied on our election. Did they? And if they did, why? I’m going to let everyone in on what I guess is a little-known secret. Of course they did. Why, because they want to be prepared for whatever happens as a result. How am I so sure of these facts? Because we do the same thing. I would be far more worried if the opposite were true and the various governments were not engaged in this sort of thing. My problem with all of this is that our government is acting like idiots. No, scratch that, they are acting like we the people are idiots.

As recently as last year reports started emerging about Obama giving hundreds of thousands of dollars to an organization called Onevoice. Onevoice in turn, gave the bulk of these grants over to the political group V15. Our government cannot, by law, give money to a foreign political group. Onevoice is a Non-Government Organization (NGO). Their task was to sway the 2015 Israeli election so they could oust Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Onevoice used the money to build a database of voters similar to the one Obama used for his campaign. Similar because it was done by the same company. They trained activists and hired a political consulting firm with ties to Obama. Again, the same company he used for his campaign.

After an official investigation conducted by the U.S. State Department, it was concluded that The Obama Administration had not given Onevoice the grants specifically to influence the election. Wait….. back the truck up a few seconds and let’s review. We are supposed to believe that Obama awarded a $300K+ grant to Onevoice during an Israeli election to, what, plant flowers? After years of anti-Israeli activities by the Obama Administration, this is what we are expected to believe? First, let’s clear the air on one huge part of this. I don’t think that Obama is or was anti-Israel, but he is and was openly anti-Netanyahu. Did everyone see the problem in all of this? These grants are ultimately awarded to these NGO’s by the U.S. State Department. In effect State investigated itself and, surprise, they found themselves not guilty of any wrongdoings. Remember, this State Department, under Obama, was the most corrupt State Department in our 240-year history.

Recently leaked documents are bringing to light that the same Administration may have tried the same thing in France during their last election.

While there was a certain amount of indignation when it was shown that the Chinese had hacked our servers multiple times and truly caused mischief with the information this is nothing compared to the furor over whether the Rooskies hacked our information. If in fact the Russians did do what they are accused of all they really exposed was just how corrupt Hellary Clinton and her minions really are. Damn shame when have to rely on the Russians to expose our elected officials, our stewards, of mass corruption.

So, in conclusion, We the People can now see that it is a far worse infraction that something could have, possibly, kept Hellary from carrying on what would have been Obama’s third term.

Have no fear my friends, all of this is leading to the rollercoaster ride known as Globalization!

Sometimes a conspiracy is loaded with Truth

It occurs to me that it may be helpful to readers of my blog to understand why I believe what I write and how I came to have these beliefs.

I think I was 16 years old and asked my father how one decides what to look for in political figures as a way of determining which party to support and ultimately cast my vote for. Now, it’s important to understand that politics was rarely a topic of conversation in the household of my youth. My father told me to simply follow the money. Now as an adult I realize this was an overly simplistic answer. My father watched the five o’clock news religiously…at the time almost everyone did. Did this mean my father was actually informed on issues or was he just satisfied that he had some information? It wasn’t until I was in my mid-forties that I found out that during that period he identified as a Democrat. I followed his advice and became a Republican.

I came of age during the Reagan administration and became a fan immediately. I was in the military during his time in the Whitehouse and saw the way it should be done. That’s not to say I agreed with everything he did but Reagan entered the Whitehouse with an agenda and doggedly pursued his vision for the US and the way we fit into the world. Speaking of Reagan, have you noticed how the Dems are constantly referring to Reagan now? I think they realize they need someone to site. They used to quote JFK but have come to the realization that if a DEM were to reference the “Ask not what your country can do for you” speech the liberals would explode.

Over the years I have seen Washington become a cesspool. Unfortunately, I don’t mean only the Democrats. I have looked at this from every angle I can think of and have come to the realization that it is mostly the peoples’ fault. The average person in this country is woefully uninformed about how their government is supposed to act and treat them. Civics is no longer taught in schools so people pretty much accept their government officials as is and figure this is just how it is. Wake up sheeple! Our government is supposed to be our stewards. They are supposed to be in Washington to look out for us and our rights.  Instead, they are just there to line their pockets from the taxes we pay and pass laws mostly intended to further that end. We, The People, need to start holding our government to a higher standard and our elected officials to an even higher standard. Look at it like this, if we wouldn’t approve if our family and friends acted self-serving and contrary to what is best for our group we would hopefully hold them to task so why give the people we have elected to look out for all of us the right to act totally against our interests?

I certain group of very powerful people has decided that we should help everyone in the world attain the same level of success through sharing the wealth of those who have worked, often for generations, to gain what they have with those who for whatever reason have not gained that success. I have compassion and I’m not wealthy but I have worked and sacrificed to have what I have and be who I am. I do not believe in just handing over the fruits of that sacrifice. There are originations within this country who believe that we should share everything, our land, wealth, and technology with others. Many of these groups do not have their origins in this country and certainly do not have our countries interests at heart. They gain their power and money by speaking of worldwide, compassionate democracy yet their actions are anything but democratic. They manipulate our government to use our tax dollars to fund Socialist causes and interfere with democratically elected governments around the world to subvert their governments by counting on those people being just as ignorant as we seem to be.

Some people in this country and around the world are not ignorant. We see what they are attempting. We have the ability to put at least some of the pieces together and we don’t like what we see.

In future posts, I will be showing just who THEY are and how they spread their ideology.  I will discuss George Soros and his Open Society Foundations, Globalization, The Club of Rome, climate change and how it is being used to push a socialist agenda.

It’s not too late for us to educate ourselves but more importantly, now that we have a Republican Congress and Whitehouse we need to educate our elected officials and show them how to see the light.

Enjoy the ride people! It will be bumpy at times but with work, we will get it done.

Wire Tap?

On Saturday, March 4, 2017, President Trump accused Former President Obama of wiretapping Trump Tower during the days leading up to the Nov. 20th election. Hours later Ben Rhodes…remember him? Mr. Rhodes is the person who wrote the talking points blaming the Benghazi attack on the video. In his latest attempt at creative writing, he tweeted the following …”No President can order a wiretap. Those restrictions were put in place to protect citizens from people like you.” FYI Ben Rhodes graduated from New York University with an MFA in Creative Writing. What better place to put those skills to work than as the spokesperson for the EX-President. Another fun fact about Ben is that his brother, David Rhodes, is the President of CBS News.

The big problem with Mr. Rhodes tweet is that he is wrong. Not only wrong but because he should know better that would leave one to suspect Mr. Rhodes is intentionally lying. AGAIN!

According to Chapter 36 of Title 50 of the US Code *War and National Defense”, Subchapter 1, Section 1802, it states the following:

  • Notwithstanding any other law, the President, through the Attorney General, may authorize electronic surveillance without a court order under this subchapter to acquire foreign intelligence information for periods of up to one year if the Attorney General certifies in writing under oath….

 

The fact that Obama may, in fact, have tapped, then Presidential Candidate Trumps phones and/or servers, as well as those of his surrogates, is far easier to believe if one remembers his willingness to tap Fox News correspondent James Rosen’s phones in 2013 and the Associated Press’s phones during the same time period. Obama, for the most part, got away with it in 2013..would it be a stretch to believe he would be so bold as to do it again? I mean let’s go one step further and imagine the possibility that Obama, in fact, did not request the FICA warrants. That would point to Loretta Lynch filing the request. HMMM, could this now explain the odd meeting between her and Bill Clinton on board her plane in Phoenix, Az? By all reports, the timing would be right. The first request would have just been filed. It’s no big secret that Obama, Lynch and the Clintons are all in bed together…so to speak.

 

The reason for this smoke and mirrors show is that the Democrats are bound and determined to prove that Trump and his crew colluded with the Russians to assure a victory in the Presidential election. I once had a girlfriend that time and time again accused me of cheating on her…Hell, I’m no catch. I was thankful to have her. After we broke up I found that every time she accused me of cheating it was simply because she had just cheated on me. Now, why bring this up? How about the fact, and it is a fact that Obama tried hard and failed to do the very same thing in Israel and may have tried in France. Not to mention the Obama Administration, through the Dept. of State, spending millions of dollars in taxpayer funds to destabilize the democratically elected government of Macedonia. Jess L. Bailey, Obama’s ambassador to Macedonia, worked closely with George Soros Open Society Foundation to funnel millions of dollars into Macedonia in an attempt to turn a center right government to a left leaning government. This would constitute a violation of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations.

 

It gets better but you will have to wait for my next post
