What the immigration stay really means

(Or what it should mean to the country and to you and I)

 

To begin, let me make it perfectly clear that the words I write are mine and what I truly believe. Call it my opinion if you like, unless I am to be accused of purposefully and intentionally reporting fake news. Although I have been previously a member of the press and may still be technically and to be specific, an investigative reporter, it is not with this title or in this capacity that I write these words. Keeping this firmly in your mind, look up the information I present to follow, on your own as to whether or not it is true.

Before the current status of the temporary immigration and refugee pause and its present stay, it is awaiting the decision from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals as to whether it will remain a stay or overturned and allowed to continue as was originally written, for limited days. Yesterday, 2/9/17, The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals  unanimously (panel of three judges) decided in favor of the Washington state judge’s ruling. The ‘stay’ is stayed.  But either way, it will likely go forward, to the Supreme Court of the United States.

Over the last eight years, the seven countries temporarily denied from coming to the United States, have been considered to be potential threats to the US, and have insufficient vetting policies. Six of these seven countries have been bombed over the last eight years with over 100,000 bombs. Our country has a long-standing history of not allowing immigrants or refugees from countries, we are at war with. Since FDR, there have been many more pauses of immigrants and refugees by Democrat presidents, than Republican presidents. But also this power to protect the citizens of the United States by the president as Commander and Chief, is both granted by The Constitution and given him or her by Legislative authority of the Congress, regardless of which party has been in the majority. The years 1952, a ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 1953 and another law passed by Congress in 1965 have been the precedents. Search this information for yourselves.

“Our country has a long-standing history of not allowing immigrants or refugees from countries, we are at war with.”

As a writer, I am employing and providing, any reader here, with back-story. If necessary, you may look that term up. To often see where we are or where we are going, it is important to see where we have been.

Search the recent private donor party of the founder of Media Matters and a recent disclosure of a confidential memorandum of how it and it’s entities seek to delegitimize the current administration with ways to impeach, impede or prevent its agenda from moving forward by way of the courts and reassert the present gurgling and on life support, Democrat Party, by 2020.

Enter, the George W. Bush appointee, a federal court judge in the state of Washington. His appointment, by a Republican president, neither make his rulings Republican or conservative, but should not control the outcome of the other 49 states and our territories. But this is how it has shaken out. One state judge has affected the rest of the nation. Research it for yourselves.

So the Justice Department acted to overturn this stay and its present status sits with the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. Although I cannot prove this, I really do believe that Media Matters searched out this judge on purpose, knowing full well that it would lead to the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which is known to be a progressive and liberal court, whose decisions are often struck down by the US Supreme Court. Search these things, for yourselves.

Meanwhile, in Washington DC, the Democrat Party continues to block, obstruct, resist, or call it what you will, slow the confirmation of the United States Attorney General. The US attorney was confirmed and sworn in yesterday, 2/9/17.  Had he already been confirmed, he would have most likely presented a more excellent argument at the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, but I am doubtful that the decision this court will rule on (as it now has), would have been any different. That should’ve been, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals should’ve never even heard the case and the judge in Washington, should’ve never challenged it in the first place and especially with words such as causing, “irreparable harm.” Those are the Washington state judge’s words that this so-called ban has produced, “irreparable harm.” One of the current countries is Syria and recently,  after this order was signed by the president, a Syrian was allowed into this country, for emergency medical treatment, which could certainly be argued that had they not received it, it could have caused irreparable harm. Inconvenience to businesses, workers and families are not the same as irreparable harm. And whether or not that this order was rolled out properly, is not as important as national security, national sovereignty, and the protection of its citizens. Search for this, the research has already been done. Make it your own.

The likelihood of the presidential nominee to the Supreme Court, will be slowed and prevented from being confirmed, for as long as possible is, very likely. I suspect it is not only for the prevention of nine judges being seated on the Supreme Court or overturning what the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals will likely decide shortly. If there are not nine justices seated, the case goes back to its last court, which in this case would be, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. The research about this exists. Search for it.

The Supreme Court is supposed to be apolitical and that sounds great on paper, but many would argue that it is equally divided with four conservatives and four more, liberal judges. The presidential nominee if confirmed is, considered to be a conservative judge and his decisions aligned with four others, would overturn the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals if so they decide and the order would be left in effect and the stay lifted. You search and research these things.

But there is something else to consider or I should say, someone else. Supreme Court judge Kennedy, resides over the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals. He is often a swing vote as his record shows, he is highly resistant of anything which prevents or lessons judicial power and especially, judicial review. Judicial review, in my opinion, is unconstitutional and only came about because, judges did not feel they had enough to do in the Supreme Court. Since adoption of the Constitution in 1789, courts have played around with the idea. In 1803, a law was struck down as being “unconstitutional” for the very first time, by the Supreme Court. Ever since that case, the Supreme Court seems to believe that judicial review is their constitutional right. Even judges are human beings, appointed for life with passion, political leanings and etc. but judicial review sets the precedence that it is the judiciary which determines what is or what is not law and has led to the idea of, “legislating from the bench.” Research it yourself.

“ You seem … to consider the judges as the ultimate arbiters of all constitutional questions; a very dangerous doctrine indeed, and one which would place us under the despotism of an oligarchy. Our judges are as honest as other men, and not more so. They have, with others, the same passions for party, for power, and the privilege of their corps…. Their power [is] the more dangerous as they are in office for life, and not responsible, as the other functionaries are, to the elective control. The Constitution has erected no such single tribunal, knowing that to whatever hands confided, with the corruptions of time and party, its members would become despots. It has more wisely made all the departments co-equal and co-sovereign within themselves.”

-Thomas Jefferson 1820-

The US Justice department, now with Attorney General Sessions sworn in, could request an en banc. In law, an en banc session (French for “in bench”) is a session in which a case is heard before all the judges of a court (before the entire bench rather than by a panel of judges selected from them. Supreme Court justice Kennedy has a choice: He can either decide the appeal on his own or refer it to the full court of all 29, 9th Circuit Court judges to hear arguments from both sides. In a case of such national gravitas, he’ll probably chose the latter. Feuer says if Trump’s lawyers do appeal to the Supreme Court, “they’ll probably ask for an emergency stay of the Seattle judge’s nationwide injunction” Research these things and perhaps the unfamiliar terms here, for yourselves.

All three branches of government are supposed to be, equal branches and yet history has shown that each branch has tried to garner more power, for themselves. So, Justice Kennedy could side with the other liberal judges and the opinion could be decided 5 to 3, in favor of overturning the executive order. This of course depends on whether or not the Supreme Court hears this case, before the ninth Supreme Court justice is seated. And even if the ninth judge was seated, Kennedy could still side with the other four liberal judges and the outcome could be, 5 to 4. I would hold Media Matters accountable, for orchestrating this, as there are odds in their favor of success, with either the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals or the United States Supreme Court. Then, there are all the other pending lawsuits, basically about the same thing and basically orchestrated, by Media Matters. Research these things, for yourselves.

How would they or could such as Media Matters be, so calculating, devious, intentional and corrupt. They would argue that their efforts are in resistance to others which are, calculating, devious, intentional and corrupt. Call this the Hegelian Dialectic or order out of chaos, when your efforts pit the very institutions and its own people to accomplish, whatever is their intended end and by whatever means. Research these things and perhaps the unfamiliar terms here, for yourselves.

What could this all mean to you and I??? Does this mean our rights do not come from God, they are not protected by The Constitution, they are not executed by the executive branch and legislated by the legislative branch, but only exist, as what the judicial branch says is law and what is lawful or unlawful and of, to, and by whom????

orderofthecourt2Contrary to what many people believe, we are not a democracy. We are a representative republic. If We the People do not reform our government to be of, for and by the people, having three equal branches, we are not even a democracy, which is, the rule by a majority nor would we be a republic, which is ruled by law, but we would be ruled by an oligarchy, the rule(s) of a few, for all of the rest of us. That is not freedom, it is enslavement!

And the protestors deceived with good intentions, co-mingled with rioters that are often paid, and the media complicit in failure to report, and education failing to inform, are unraveling the very fabric of the Stars and Stripes of our Republic, whose flags they fly and trample beneath their feet.

And did you think this was just a mean-spirited, religious-banning executive order? Was it to protect our rights? Or will it be the end of, the United States of America, by order of the court?

Are WE on the Verge of the Second Revolution?

November 3, 2016

To my Family, my Friends and anyone who still has a will to open their eyes and still, has ears to hear.

Are WE on the Verge of the Second, American Revolution?

I am writing to you and particularly, to all those like me, that have not yet voted, in the upcoming election, on November 8, 2016.

To begin, please forgive me in taking this one liberty, in assuming you know at least something, about the American Revolution, which began officially in writing The Declaration of Independence, signed July 2nd and published July 4th, 1776. What I would like you to take from this is, that every person signing, were guilty of treason. They mutually pledged their fortunes, their sacred honor and their lives. They broke the law to protect and defend the law of God-given equality and unalienable rights!

Now, here we are in 2016, just days before the election on November 8th. Is this more, much more, than just an end finally, to the most divisive time and election of our lives? Is it a harbinger of more tumult to come, than we have ever imagined? Or are WE the People, on the verge of, the Second American Revolution, for the life of our fragile Republic?

Surely, you must be tired of this whole thing like I am and cannot wait, for it to be over and to get on with our lives, in whatever state we may find them, after this damnable or wrecking ball to restore, this THING, is over!

By now, most everyone knows that the Clinton e-mail scandal ended last July, with the findings that there was no ‘intent’ and no recommendation from the FBI, for the Justice Department to prosecute. The FBI’s director’s boss, the Attorney General, for the United States, accepted the recommendation. About half of the country were pleased and the other half were not.

The two candidates seeking the office of president continued to accuse one another and present their plans to their supporters. Donald J. Trump, accused Hillary Clinton of being “crooked’ and that the whole system was “rigged.” Clinton responded in kind, with her or her supporter’s accusations. Every day and night, mainstream media at least, had lots to talk about and their ratings soared  and their advertisers were pleased, I guess? At least many people were tuning in, to this circus and their products and services were being seen. Follow the money.

WkiLeaks started releasing a lot of incriminating emails. Their authenticity was NOT denied. Instead, the Clinton campaign accused Trump of working with the Russians to influence the election. Then, the Clinton Campaign directly accused the Russians of hacking the emails, giving them to WikiLeaks and all, to influence the election. WikiLeaks countered, that it was impossible. Just remember that WikiLeaks showed, it was, “impossible.”

Two days before Halloween, on October 28, 2016, FBI director James Comey sent a letter to some members of the House of Representatives, indicating that new information had led them to review, the Clinton email case. This letter in full, was copied and leaked. Almost immediately, the word “review” was interpreted to, “re-opening” the case.

Next, Director Comey was accused in trying to influence the election. Many that previously (just the previous July) who had praised his decision then, now accused him of breaking the law and in trying to influence the election.

A few days later, it was leaked that on a laptop, jointly shared by Hillary Clinton’s top aide Huma Abedin and her estranged husband, Anthony Wiener, some 650,000 emails discovered. This is significant as, Abedin had told the FBI that she had released all her files and emails to them previously. It was leaked that she did not know they were still on this laptop and that she had previously forwarded all her files to her Yahoo account, to make them easier to print and that she had previously saved them to help in preparing a book for Hillary Clinton, sometime in the future. She told the FBI that she did not know all these files had been backed up on this laptop. She has disappeared from Clinton’s side, ever since. She and her husband are most likely, looking to make some kind of deal with the FBI and/or seeking legal council. It has been leaked that the contents of this laptop contains a treasure trove of information, which may contain classified material and new material, not previously viewed by the FBI. Her estranged husband’s legal issues go beyond this to an actual investigation into his possible, pedophilia. That’s what it is, not merely just sex-ing as the media has said. It is a very serious matter, for both of them and perhaps Clinton as well? There are deeply concerned members of many federal agents that believe, FBI director Comey, has not handled these investigations correctly. Yes, there is deep division among the agencies of all across the government! All of theses things have been leaked and are not disputed. What is disputed however is, whether or not it is all a conspiracy by one party or the other, to influence the outcome of this election. Everyone seems to e leakin g, accusing and blaming each other.

Over forty states have asked the Federal government, for help in possible fraud of the polling places, in every single state. This is your first assignment, to look that up as well as a— “master key” which exists, in the software, which can change the results of each polling place!

There are several states which allow voters to change their votes and Wisconsin allows them to change their votes three times. Look that up and for how many people who have already voted which now are, wanting to change their votes. If possible, go and change your vote if necessary. Trust me, your vote is, NECESSARY!

Look at the lead from polls, in both the popular vote and electoral vote estimates, for Hillary Clinton, just a few short days ago. Her lead was supposedly unbeatable and Donald Trump had already lost. Look at the polls most recently. Trump is either ahead and in places he was NOT supposed to be or at least the race is now, very, very tight. A few % points is one thing, but her popular vote lead was double digits and her expected electoral votes, around 333 or 63 votes more, than the 270, needed to win the presidency. What has changed in just a few short days? Was this all hype on the part of her campaign and the media? Did this many people, actually change their minds in just 3-4 days? Or, is there something else going on?

Hang on, we are just getting started!

I would like to offer a video. Please disregard the publisher’s title of this:

‘5 Minute Speech that Got Judge Napolitano Fired from Fox News.’

He was never fired! It is not true! Watch the video, which was most likely posted or copied from the original broadcast. Then, read the Judge’s comment about this program being canceled. He was not fired, because of, the content.

https://youtu.be/UgGnBCDfCLM

“In television, shows are cancelled all the time. Two of my former shows have been cancelled, and after each cancellation, Fox has rewarded me with more and better work. This cancellation—along with others that accompanied it—was the result of a business judgment here, and is completely unrelated to the FreedomWatch message. It would make a world of a difference for all of us, if you would KINDLY STOP SENDING EMAILS TO FOX. I am well. Your values are strong. I will continue to articulate those values here at Fox. But the emails many of you are sending are unfairly interfering with my work and that of my colleagues here. The emails even violate our values because they interfere with the use of private property. I have accepted the cancellation decision with good cheer and a sense of gearing up for the future. You should as well.
As a favor to me, and as I have asked this past weekend, PLEASE STOP SENDING EMAILS TO MY COLLEAGUES AT FOX ABOUT THE CANCELLATION OF Freedom Watch; and please stop NOW.”

Judge Andrew Napolitano, in response to his program ‘Freedom Watch’
being canceled on Fox News, in 2014

This video again, was from TWO YEARS AGO. How timely! How insightful! It is almost prophetic, as to the present time! This next video was published, on August 4th, 2016.

The NSA leaking to WikiLeaks? Remember how this began, in 1776? They broke the law to protect and defend the law! Is this the Second, American Revolution? WE haven’t seen anything yet!

Whatever is happening, something big is, underway.

I realize I have asked you to look up certain things. I want you to see for yourself. These things cannot be found in the mainstream media. Social Media is barely starting, to scratch the surface. Use the skills you were taught in grade school, how to look things up. Because, this information is so fluid, and changes so quickly! You have to look for it online, on the Internet.

Look up the following word: coup d’é•tat

One of these was recently attempted by the military in Turkey, not too long ago. What if, a coup d’é•tat was attempted the last few days, in our own country, without the military, but entirely on the Internet? Is its massive corruption covered up, by its massive co-option of the many interrelated, crony associations which may be complicit in this corruption, one way or another? Are some people starting to bail in hopes of protecting themselves from the avalanche that is about to come? Barack Obama, Michele Obama and Elizabeth Warren have all, stopped following Hilary Clinton, on Twitter, just within the last couple of days. Look that up.

What if at the same time, a counter- coup d’é•tat was also conducted on the Internet, by those in intelligence agencies that are (ongoing) breaking the law to protect and defend the law?

Now, look up the following name: Steve Pieczenik

Look first, at his bio. Now look, for any videos associated with him and recently, as of November 1st, 2016. Is he crazy? Is this man just part of another conspiracy theory? Or is he but a spokesperson, for a group of people in the NSA, CIA, FBI, NYPD (New York Police Department), Military Intelligence and other federal agencies that are willing to break the law, in order to protect and defend the law? Is this the Second, American Revolution?

For sure, there has never been anything like this, in our short 200+ years, as a representative republic! Is this or is this about to be, a Constitutional Crisis? Look that up. What do those words mean, “Constitutional Crisis?”

If WE the People are divided (and we are), is it any great thing to think that the very government which most of all of us do NOT trust, are not divided too? Is our dividing away from one another due to party, person and opinions formed, by a lot of misinformation coming from the government and the media? But the division within our government if the dual- coup d’é•tat is true, one is to cover it up and the other is to reveal it!

I realize that this all sounds so incredibly fantastic, as a work of fiction. American author Mark Twain (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) once wrote:

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because
Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn’t.”

Mark Twain

“Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed;
And ye shall [absolutely] know the truth, and the truth shall [absolutely] make you free.”

The Bible, John 8:31, 32

Our founders had the fear and threat of the unknown. They persevered, for the hope of something better. We have their history of what they wrought, what republic left they gave us and the responsibility to VOTE, for its continuance! Do WE really know what the meesage of our Republic is? If we do, do WE not also, have the responsibility to protect and defend the messengers of our Republic? Keep digging, this is a whole lot more than just two people running for president. It could be the end or, the beginning of, The Second, American Revolution!

Are there true patriots which are actually, breaking the law to save our fragile republic? Will WE the People, VOTE to continue this republic of, by and for the people?

Vote! Pray! Pray for yourself! Pray for me! Pray for the true messengers! Pray for the United States of America!!!

Damn the Appearance of Evil

June 11, 2016

4Monkeys

The four wise monkeys— speak no evil, hear no evil, see no evil and do no evil

Damn the appearance of evil!

Now maybe this will anger you or maybe not, but this is from me. It is from my blog, this blog. These are my words and my thoughts and the last time I looked, this is still the home of the brave and the land of the FREE! When last I knew, I am still entitled to my opinion. I think there are sufficient facts to bear out the reasons for my conclusions.

My opinions were formed long ago, when both the Clinton’s and I were living in the state of Arkansas. So it’s clear, we three were not living together. 🙂 We were just in the same state. I’ve never met either of them. Setting one aside, suffice it to say, I have never liked, respected or trusted, Hillary Clinton. Let there be no mistake about this, she is presently under CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION, by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). That is a fact.

Possible charges of espionage and corruption by the Clinton Foundation and/or the Clinton Global Initiative aside, whether intentional or not, she is at least lacking PERMISSION if not guilty of, having used a private server for email. She did have and did use a private server and that is a fact.

According to many polls, about 60% of those asked, do not trust her handling of this matter and many other matters, not here addressed. That is a present fact. Her favorability is way low and that is a fact.

It is a presidential political year and that is a fact. She recently became the presumptive Democratic Nominee for president, based on the delegate count (including super delegates) and she was recently endorsed by the current president and a U.S. senator from Massachusetts. Those are facts.

After almost two years, Hillary Clinton finally agreed to appear on Fox News. That is a fact. It is no surprise that she as well as many, do not like Fox News. In an election year such as this, it only makes sense to get your message out to as many people as possible, wherever possible, even if it happens to be through Fox News. But she did appear recently and sat down for an interview with Bret Baier, June 8, 2016. That is a fact. Please watch the following video, all the way to the end (about 7 minutes 56 seconds), before you return to this post.

My take and my point in the above video and for this entire post is, the confidence in which she replied, to Bret Baier’s final question.

BAIER

“The Clinton Foundation Investigation, The FBI Investigation, The Email Investigation, what you’re saying is, there is 0 chance, for this to be a problem, for you in this election?”

CLINTON

“Absolutely. That’s what I’m saying. That happens to be the truth.”

I marvel at her confidence!!! Although I question her judgment, ethics and ulterior motives, I have never and do not question this woman’s intelligence! I believe it is in NOT within the realm of possibility, for her to look anyone in the eyes and boldly and with conviction, tell a lie! However, I do not perceive this in her final statement above, to Bret Baier. So, I take her at her word and she said it confidently— without reservation or hesitation. Is it “truth” because she has done nothing wrong or is it “truth” (her word even though it would be a fact) that she will never be held accountable for her actions? Truth is universal and unchanging, but facts can change.

Now, all of the above leads me to my opinion.

I do not believe the Obamas’ or the Clintons’ have ever liked or respected one another. I still don’t! I believe her appointment, as Secretary of State was, nothing more than appeasement and for God knows what, political purposes. I am quite confident that the president would like to see his legacy continue into at least, the next four years. There is no one running, for his office, more suited than Clinton to his purposes, with all due respect to Bernie Sanders.

I believe that Hillary is smarter than the president. I believe she purposefully set up a private email server to control the data between herself and the State Department and even the White House, and to hide the trail of her doings so to speak, and to shield her from Freedom of Information requests (FOIA), even IF it was just a matter of her not trusting our own government, the same government that employed her.

It is a fact that the president has been found to have sent and received at least two emails, over the past however many years, from then Secretary of State Clinton’s, private email server. IF the FBI ever recommends to the Department of Justice, criminal charges, and IF the DOJ proceeds with a grand jury, and IF she would ever be indicted, the president of the United States could be called as a witness, and he would be complicit in corresponding (knowingly or not) over an unsecured email server! And it would not matter if it was sensitive, confidential, classified or even personal!

I do not know what and when the FBI will conclude their investigation. I do not know what their recommendations will be (if any). But based on Clinton’s confidence that there is “O chance,” of any of these things being a problem to her in this election, even IF the FBI recommends charges to the Department of Justice, the DOJ will NOT, absolutely NOT bring charges, convene a gran jury, nor will she ever be indicted or spend a moment in jail or prison for any, if any, wrong doings!!!

It won’t matter how many emails were deleted (at least 30,000), how many that have been redacted, how many were sensitive, confidential, classified, if her email server was hacked once or possibly more (and even possibly by foreign governments), how many lives may have been put into jeopardy or that the security of the United States of America has been compromised, there is “O chance,” she will ever be indicted! And if she were, I am CONFIDENT that the president of the United States has the power to not only pardon her, but himself as well!

Damn my evil surmising imaginings or damn this corruption within the bowels of Our Republic, but damn Hillary Rodham Clinton, for— THE APPEARANCE OF EVIL!

“Abstain from all appearance of evil.”

(I dare you to read)

AsEyeSeeIt

Dear reader, I write this NOT to convince anyone or persuade anyone of anything. I write it ONLY because, I care. I care about you! As Eye See it, the United States of America is at a crossroads of unknown challenges or consequences, IF we fail to get this one shot right! If WE the People fail to act, this may be our last opportunity? The time for uniting is far past. We are divided. We are upon a precipice. The past is rapidly disappearing behind US. The time for going back is no more. We must leap to something unknown. I dare you to continue below!

There are those that do not care; have never cared; will never care, but rather take pleasure in gutting this whole republic and seeing it burn down in flames! And those enemies are not only from without, they are among US, not a people supplanted or brought here, but our own. I dare you to continue below!

For many, with anger and fear, they find themselves upon unfamiliar ground to have to leap, to believe and trust in something they cannot see, hear, smell, taste or touch. But leap WE all must! I dare you to continue below!

But this is not yet, the time of despair, for as long as life beats within our chest and breath still fills our lungs, we are alive. As long as WE still have our Constitution, we have hope. HOPE, slim as it might be, but there is still hope. There is always hope, for some of us, if not all of us. I would like it to be, all of us! What is reflected in OUR eyes; in your eyes? What is in the apple of your eye and mine? What is the core or in the depth of your being and mine? I dare you to continue below!

Dear reader, I appeal to you to read this from start to finish. I dare you to share this with your every beloved and every friend you have un-friended or that has un-friended you; every enemy— to mail it, email it, post it, repost it, shout it and tweet it from sea to shining sea! I will submit this for your consideration and I will use whatever means I can, to communicate this, even to quote from little known and the most unlikely of sources. I dare you to continue below!

“The brutality of censorship.”
“The Consequences of free expression.”

“Beloved reader, I leave you now, a man who found freedom in the most unlikeliest places, in the bottom of an inkwell on the tip of a quill. Come I dare you, turn the page!”

All the above quotes are from, the Marquis de Sade. I dare you to search, the Marquis de Sade! Unlike the Marquis de Sade, the format in which you are reading this is not written with ink and quill and you may not be viewing it as a page in a book. Still, Dear Reader, still continue to the next line, I dare you!

Dear reader, have you not read; have you not heard, that truth, even on the lips of the devil is, still truth? Have you not read; have you not heard that truth can hurt? Do we not understand that even if we may be upon the right track, we can be run over, if we just stand there? Do we not understand that truth, the precious healing power of truth, can hurt if unheeded? Remember our quote of childhood, “sticks and stones can break our bones, but words can never hurt us?” Do we still teach this lie to our children? Have we ever recovered from broken bones? Can we EVER recover from the toxic words that can disintegrate our bones, break our hearts and cast us into the abyss of, as if we were, never known; have never lived, and will be remembered no more? Words can do that. “A remark generally hurts in proportion to its truth.”—Will Rogers, 20th century writer/speaker/humorist. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Our times are nothing new, but where we go from here, will be, to us and future generations, determined by, what we now do. But our times remind me of something I’ve read, long ago that was written far, far longer ago— “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…” These are the opening words of chapter 1, ‘A Tale of Two Cities,’ by Charles Dickens in 1859. Dear reader, I dare you, to continue reading below.

This book was written about two cities, two main characters and two contrasts (possible outcomes or destinies) during the times of, the French Revolution. This is not unlike our times. Today, our choices reside in two dominant political parties, two ideas, two main characters and two possible outcomes. We are divided and this division between us is predominantly, fear and anger. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

The Democratic-Republican Party was the American political party in the 1790’s of, Thomas Jefferson and James Madison, formed in opposition to the centralizing policies of the Federalist party. It came to power in 1800, and dominated national and state affairs until the 1820’s, when it faded away. This party split and resurfaced as the separate parties we know today as, the Democrat and Republican parties. Each claim Jefferson as their founder, then later one was the party of Lincoln and the other of FDR or Franklin Delano Roosevelt. These two divided parties are still divided, but now more than ever, many of us have come to realize that they are the ones that divide us, to gain or maintain their political power and influence over us, for whom they treat US as their servants. They are angry and they are afraid and they pass this on to us, WE the People that they are, supposed to serve. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

In short, these two parties target us by promising more from the government and the other promises us less government or limited government. And both promise democracy, but the power they hold is not by the majority of the people that give it, but by the money, delegates and the electoral college (the few) that decide the elections. We are angry and we are afraid and even more, we have never known or have forgotten, who and what we are. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, he was asked a question by a woman (emphasis implied). It was NOT, “Well Doctor, what have we got, a [democracy] or a [oligarchy]?” It was a, “republic or a monarchy?” And his answer was not a democracy, but— “A republic if you can keep it.”— Benjamin Franklin. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

In most of our lifetimes, this has been what we’ve been taught and what we still believe that we are a democracy. But this is NOT what the signers of our Constitution thought, taught or signed. For simplicity sake, let us be clear. A democracy is the rule by the majority. A Republic is the rule by law, NOT to limit US, but the government! Use the word “power” if you do not like the word “rule” for both. Laws are replaced with regulations by Congress, presidential proclamations or executive orders, and overthrown, upheld and even changed by the Supreme Court. Into the hands of our government, WE have surrendered more and more of our liberty under the fear of threat to national security, national crisis, state of emergency or the promises made, un-kept. “Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”— Benjamin Franklin. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Amidst the troubles of our times, our practical and all but declared bankruptcy, our loss of jobs and the fears for our futures and that of our children, we turn towards the government to help us or we turn from it. We are angry and we are afraid. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

In the midst of this turmoil and in this presidential election year, it began quite simply with two presumed choices for president. One is named Clinton and the other is named Bush. But the people spoke and there has been an uproar and an uprising. Bush is out or has at least suspended his campaign, for perhaps the hope for something to happen or a brokered convention? But for now, he is out and Clinton is NOT the all-but-done deal. Over 60% of people asked, don’t trust her and yet, she has still been winning about 50% and more of the vote and a whole lot more of the delegates than she has earned. The math simply does not add up. Why, if she is not trusted, would so many vote for her? Is it experience? Is it fear of losing what they believe the last seven years has brought them? Is she their hope of continuing the legacy of the present administration? Is she just a vote against the anger and fear of the other party taking over? But there is fear and anger that what this administration means to many and what she stands for, does NOT do enough; go far enough! Enter another candidate that speaks to this anger and to this fear that even this administration has not done enough; gone far enough. Enter a democratic socialist. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Bernie Sanders has been made by not only the Democrat party, but the Republican party, the media and a divided people as well. He speaks to many with his voice, their silent voices of anger and fear. He is well liked. He is trusted. He is an insurgent who speaks of the wanton waste, abuse and corruption in government and capitalism, particularly of those of great wealth at the expense of all others and often even their bailout, by the people. But it is not so much his person that is met with anger and fear, it is what he represents. Few care or know that his first paycheck in life was at age forty and it was then and has been ever since, been provided by the government, “of, by and for the people…,” he so often quotes, Abraham Lincoln, a republican. But he himself, he is not a republican, he is a socialist, a democratic socialist. Some argue against any form of socialism and some argue that we already are, a socialist country, just as we are already, a democracy. But socialism is not new to this country. It has been here as a party in some form, since the 19th century. Many think of the ‘Hippies’ of the 1960’s as Utopian socialists. Socialists were here in the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s and are still here in the 21st century with several of their members serving, in our present government. But after losing many national elections, a leader of their party suggested they stop using the word socialist and use progressive instead and move it all, into the democrat party, and the people will vote for them! Most of us have no idea what socialism is. Democracy, progressiveness, and socialism are all, one and the same. They all share the idea that government must provide for all, all we need. But I will only be brief in a description of socialism. As Eye See It, democracy is, the goal of socialism. “The goal of socialism is communism.”— Vladimir Lenin. Dear reader, I dare you to search Lenin and then continue reading below.

In keeping with Charles Dickens and his Tale of Two Cities, Bernie Sanders represents the “best of times” because, he clearly shows the pulse of the divided country and brings to light clearly, what is on people’s minds. He rallies against waste, abuse and corruption. He defines our present government as an oligarchy. He has raised more individual contributions (about 4 million) than any candidate in history, with the average contribution of around $27. His support is broad-based among the many differences of many men and women. He is beholden to no major donors or super PACS (political action committees). Bernie Sanders is, “the best of times.” But, Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Bernie Sanders represents, the “worst of times” because, he shows the pulse of the divided country and brings to light clearly, one possible outcome of our fragile republic. His support clearly shows how far people are willing to go to revolt and transform this country even further than, it already has been. Most don’t believe we now are under or understand what an oligarchy is until— they realize it basically means, power in the hands of a few. And if Sanders’ is successful in his call for revolution, he will become one of the few, a different kind of a few perhaps, but still one of the few. But his non-lead shows that either the majority of his party are not willing to go as far as his vision promotes or he is just not considered electable. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

On the republican side, enter one outsider, made by both the Democrat and the Republican parties, the media and the divided country. His name is, Donald Trump. He is a wealthy billionaire businessman, celebrity and author. He has been made or brought to presidential candidate status by the perceived failures of the Democrat party. He has been made or brought to the forefront of the 2016 political process by, the very party he represents (the Republican party), and the media and a divided people, angry and afraid. He is greatly disliked and feared by the democrats, his own party, independents and the media. And despite all of this, he is outperforming ALL expectations. Pundits cannot figure him out. He is self-funding and beholden to no one, though many argue he is, only to himself and his own self-interests and his perceived, braggadocios and all encompassing ego. But he cannot seem to be caused to cave or pushed aside. His support is broad based and his supporters appear to be unmovable. He is the break against and the champion against, political correctness. In keeping with Charles Dickens and his Tale of Two Cities, Donald Trump represents the “best of times” because, he clearly shows the pulse of the divided country and brings to light clearly, what is on people’s minds. He rallies against waste, abuse and corruption and especially ineptitude and incompetence. His support is broad-based, for he appears to represent the former silent majority. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

With Donald Trump, we have only to look at his history of business. Will like his business history, will he make a better deal in ‘making America great again’? Trump represents the “best of times” because, a better deal is, what many are seeking, not a politician, someone well-spoken, polite or even a deeply religious leader, but a better deal-maker. His own running clearly shows that our government has been poorly run as if, it were a business. Surely a businessman, could make a better deal? But these are also, the worst of times. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Donald Trump represents, the “worst of times” because, with his vision and the agenda he has set for America, he has brought out the opposite of a quote from the first inaugural address of Abraham Lincoln— “We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.” Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Donald Trump represents, the “worst of times” because, we are not friends, but enemies; our passions have been strained perhaps, beyond measure  and our once united and bonds of affection are broken. And we are now so close to forgetting that there ever was a time we were united. The lie is now called the truth and the darkness is called the light. Those that believe he is nothing, but a con-man, are themselves conned. For WE all have been conned by the two parties of con! Donald Trump represents the “worst of times” because, those that oppose him clearly show that WE the People are divided. Many have promised or threatened to vote for the other party, not vote at all, leave the party or the country if, he becomes the republican nominee or is somehow elected president. These threats or promises (depending on your perspective) are not just from the democrats, but the republicans and independents too! In Donald Trump, we clearly see and vent the worst devils of our nature. These are, “the worst of times.” Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

Political unrest! Economic uncertainty! A future paused, interrupted or a republic lost! We are divided! We can no longer even agree to disagree. We are heading towards the unknown, fueled with a great and seemingly, bottomless reservoir of explosive anger and fear is a lit match. The time for uniting is, no more. We will either push off and on towards a revolution or a movement. Nothing stays the same; all will be changed. Whether we end up with more government or less of a government or even a functioning one, is only part of what lies ahead to be seen, if the smoke ever clears or any is left alive or still have eyes to see? The Supreme Court now has only the possibility of a 4-to-4 split. A new judge must be appointed to maintain the balance or totally transform it, depending on the results of the presidential election. There may soon be more judges, for the new president to appoint? The court will side towards either more or less government. The pendulum has already swung far left. Will it cease from swinging, swing further left and stop or swing far, far right? Either way, a pendulum swinging must return to its center; its balance. And for the moment of this writing, our only political hope for balance is, the Constitution of the United States of America. Whether it is allowed to remain as is; as was written; as was intended, a document written with a pen of iron, upon a rock, a bedrock, for all generations or as others believe, a ‘living thing’ changed at will, it is, still here! It is our contract with the government to limit the government or our right to abolish and form something new. If we head over the cliff in this revolution, it does not ever need to be replaced, as it remains now changed and thus, permanently altered? But if we head over the cliff of this movement, will we ever regain what it was? Will it then be replaced with or without our will, with something new? But it is, for now, still here! WE are divided. WE will either push US off this cliff to one possible outcome or the other. WE all will leap or we will be pushed. Dear reader, I dare you to continue reading below.

As Eye See it, what is in your eye? What do you behold? What WE all see is anger and fear of both parties, the media, business and greed! And I submit to you Dear reader that WE have allowed this. We have brought US to this day and time. I, in my own weakness and failure to stand for you and for what is right have diminished you! I, in my own ignorance have misled you, ill-fed you with unintended consequences and I, have in anger and fear aided and abetted the enemy as if, I had willingly conspired. No Washington, Jefferson, Lincoln, Roosevelt, Kennedy, Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Sanders, Trump, or any other can unite us, there are no more those that can unite, nor are WE even looking for them. WE are, divided. ONLY WE the People can save us by what has been given to US and the truths and the principles upon which others lived; pledged their lives; their fortunes; their sacred honor; their“last ounce of devotion…,” — [Abraham Lincoln] and  died to defend! Now is not a time to unite, but to take a stand! And if over this cliff i or WE must, it is far, far better to stand upon our feet and leap, than to kneel and be pushed by the anger and fear of slavery, unless we kneel before the throne of mercy and find grace! What WE now hold in our hands will be left or lost to the next generations. But I give to you another option; another hope? I dare you to read my book, ‘RESET “An Un-alien’s Guide to Resetting Our Republic.”ResetBut_sm

Reset

And if time remains or God allows it to be so, another gift, another hope, the work I am trying to complete to give to you for FREE; on or before Tuesday, November 8th, 2016— ‘Apple of Gold in a Picture of Silver.’Apple of Gold in a Picture of Silver

But more than this, there remains hope. There is always hope! If not, for all of us, some of us. I would like it to be, for all of US! For myself, I will cling to my God and Father, His Word, my family and friends; guns if necessary, The Declaration of Independence, The Constitution of the United States of America, and the precious hope of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness! God Bless You and May God continue to Bless, the United States of America! All that I could have done and should have done and may want to do, may be too late, for tomorrow, I may be, out of time! Today, this moment is, all that any of US have! I cannot and will not tell you who to vote for, I just implore you to— VOTE! Dear reader, I leave you now with a few lines from the poem ‘Ulysses,’ by Alfred lord Tennyson, written in 1833 and published in, 1842. I dare you to read below, then turn the page to the future!

“We are not now that strength which in old days
Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are;
One equal temper of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate, but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find, and not to yield.”

Make America Great Again

February 9, 2016

MakeAmericaGreat_med

Well sure, for what it’s worth, you could say that this is an endorsement of Donald Trump for president. I endorse the slogan, and all it could mean, and the ability to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN! But this post is even more than this. There’s lyrics below to a potential song. If you do not want to read this entire post, then scroll down to bottom of the page, for my song (lyrics) or first—

Political campaigns or politicians (even if they are only about 6 months old like Trump) using songs by musicians who do not support them has been a thorny issue for decades.  But people need to get on the facts train and get off the band (opinion) wagon. Yes, band, that was a pun, a little punny’ or funny, if you will.

Facts:

Does a songwriter/singer/musician/group etc. publish music for profit? Of course they do! Would they like as many people as possible to purchase their music? Absolutely!

Now if you or I purchase their music, we can play it anywhere and at anytime we like (almost) and that includes at home or work where other people hear it that have not paid for it.

Public performance require additional licenses (legal permission with financial payments being made). If this is not what the artist intends, then they should not publish their work, sell their work and perform their work in public. These things are all supposed to be spelled out in the contracts, between the artists and their record labels. Unless the artist spells out in the contract that their music cannot be used ‘politically,’ like the artist Prince has been known to do, the artist really has no legal legs to stand on, as long as their music has be legally licensed.

Why would an artist object to their music being played anywhere, at anytime, by anyone for any reason, as long as they are being paid or the music is being heard, which could potentially get them more money? Because, they don’t like the politics, the person(s) using their music? OK, that is a legitimate response, but is that spelled out in their contracts? USUALLY NOT!

And if offended, so often they send messages, cease-and-desist letters and etc. to try and stop those they think are abusing their music or using their music, for any thing other than what they have intended. Still, they really do not have the U.S. Copy Right Law in their corner. But not wanting to offend the artist that has sent such a request or made such a demand, it will most likely be settled out of court and their music will cease from playing in political venues. And why not? If you offend the artist, you might also offend their fans. And I submit, therein lies another reason why the artists do not want to be associated with politics. Their fans might not like it and stop buying their music. That’s all about money under the pretense of political correctness!

Another curious thing is, the type of music being played. Although there are exceptions to this, for the most part, rock-n-roll, hop, hip, the so-called ‘cool music,’ the supposed ‘smart music,’ the live and living popular music, all seem to be associated with the Democrat Party. That leaves what they consider the dead, dumb, unpopular, country/western, hill-billy, redneck, country bumpkin or hick music that should only be used by the Republican Party. How ridiculous are these stereotypes? RIDICULOUS!

Music is, universal. It is NOT that I think it is, music IS, UNIVERSAL! Music transcends ages, culture, languages and countries. It is used for many things like: marching, patriotism, inspiration, mourning, comfort, dancing, happiness, political statements, social commentary and well, music may be, without limits and without bounds as to what it means  to people and how it is used. There is both a science and an art to music. It can be used to build-up and it can be used to tear down.

What difference does it make what kind of music I like, as long as I pay for it? The artists should be grateful that I like their work and that I like it so much, I buy it. Isn’t this kind of like I am endorsing them? I have never heard any artist that protests over using their music, where they reimburse anyone that paid for their music, to stop playing it!

I like many different kinds of music. Does that make me a Democrat, Republican or Other or does it just mean I like many kinds of music? There are artists whose music I like, but not them personally or their political slant. Does this mean I should not like their music or just that I do not like them as persons? If I still like, enjoy, purchase and play their music, does this make me a hypocrite or that  I endorse their political views? Of course not! If they discover that I do not like them or agree with their politics, have they ever asked me to stop liking their music, to stop buying it and stop playing it? NOT, as of this writing. And if they did and I agreed to stop playing it (“agreed to” not forced to as if I did something wrong legally because, I did pay for it), shouldn’t they then give me back my money? Well. none of this is going to happen anyway, but the point is, this is, all RIDICULOUS!

Now when it come to lyrics (if the music has them), and I don’t like the words, I won’t play it, even if I still like the music. If it’s just the music or the instrumental version I may, but if I don’t like or agree with the words, I won’t play it. And I may be, just referring to one song or even all, but one song on an album or CD/Download etc. Yes, I may buy an album just for ONE SONG or purchase just the one. But none of these things mean I like the artist or their politics, just their music.

In the future, artists should write their contracts out that their music is NOT allowed to be used by certain people and/or for certain purposes AND THEN ALSO MAKE IT POSSIBLE THAT THEY CANNOT PURCHASE THEIR MUSIC. Well, that ridiculous, but it does make the point. In the future, change the copyright laws to have all music excluded from all political parties, not just the the one you don’t like. That would be fair. Or just quit acting so offended and be grateful that your music is being played and purchased in the first place!

Now here is a wild idea. DON’T WRITE LYRICS that you do NOT want the public to read or hear and that even a child or a fool can’t understand and that in so reading or hearing them sung, the words don’t tear down people, but build them up! Wouldn’t this be acceptable to all parties? YES or YES IT SHOULD!

To Donald Trump, here’s another idea. Forget all those politically incorrect people and make your own music. People will still complain about that too, but it will still be yours. To follow are some lyrics I wrote. You may surely use them. I’d be proud if you do! Find someone to write the music, something that gets people excited (musically) and their hearts pounding, equal to the purpose of your running for president of the United States of America to—

Rolling up, from the deep
The silent awaken from their sleep
And shouting, “We’re not gonna take it anymore
North, South, East and West from shore to shore

Verse 2

And to the powers that be, you have taken our trust
Broken it, crumbled it and turned it into rust
Oh, NO, “We’re not gonna’ take it
Instead, “We’re gonna’ make it
So the angry chorus becomes a glad refrain

Why I’m Not Liberal; Not a Liberal, Not Conservative or a Conservative, just an Independent 4

PART 4 of 4 FINAL

AppleEye3

I would like to be liberal; a liberal, but I CANNOT be now or in the future! I may have thought I was liberal; a liberal in the past, but I CANNOT be now or in the future!

A belief which is followed by actions where the word “liberal” has been hijacked and re-defined that in practice means something different or that it is something which it is NOT is, nothing less than, THEFT! How can anyone be set at liberty when to do so, others are enslaved? How can one’s “free” choice be really “free,” when it holds others captive? How can anyone be made free by taking from someone else? How can one be paid from funds they have not earned and that were taken from others without their permission, their will; their choice? How can anything that is bankrupt (non-existent) be given to anyone by borrowing it against the future of those that will be bound to even more lack-ah-nuttin’? How can your choice make me “free,” when it takes from others, burdens them, enslaves their futures and robs me from ever being free, to help make free, anyone else?

Today’s “liberal” is NOT free and cannot therefore, make “free,” anyone else! It is nothing more than like a carrot on a stick. The poor, brute, bridled beast keeps reaching for the promise of “freedom,” but will never taste that “freedom” nor eat of “liberty!”

Both the binder and the bound, dependent upon each other are, all in bondage!

Both the binders and the bound, dependent upon each other are, all in bondage!

So, I’m NOT liberal or a liberal! I must then be a conservative? I would like to say YES, this is true, IF by the meaning of “conserve” it would mean, “for ALL to enjoy the fruits of Liberty, for as long as possible! But, the words “conserve” and “conservative” have also, been hijacked by another political party, the Republican Party.

Poll after poll suggest that WE the People do not trust Congress and it is made up of many parties, but mostly and always and usually controlled by just 2, the Democrat and Republican parties. Only the media has just a slight edge above Congress, in these LESS THAN, UNFAVORABLE POLLS!

The facts are, WE are divided and perhaps more so now, than at any time in the history of the artist formerly known as, “The United States of America.” It seems that WE use our lives, liberties and happiness to pursue HOW to insult our political opponents like good ol’ Mer-cuns’ (Americans).

“A Pew Research Center report released this year concluded that “Republicans and Democrats are more divided along ideological lines—and partisan antipathy is deeper and more extensive—than at any point in the last two decades.” As anyone who has ever looked through comments on a political blog can attest, this polarization often translates into venomous language, with Republicans and Democrats slinging insults at each other over the partisan divide.”

“American English has a specialized vocabulary of insults based on party affiliation. For instance, a Democrat deriding a Republican might use the term wingnut, combining the notion of right-wing extremism and irrational nuttiness, or Rethuglican (Rethug for short), a blend of Republican and thug. The lexicon of Republican insults for Democrats includes moonbat, which the late William Safire traced back to libertarian blogger Perry de Havilland in the fuller form “barking moonbat”, suggesting  ideology-crazed partisans howling at the moon. Even more common than moonbat in Oxford’s tracking corpus is the schoolyard-esque slur libtard (from liberal and –tard in retard, an offensive term for a person with intellectual disabilities). Liberal neologists have gotten in on the –tard act too, but Teatard (with reference to the conservative Tea Party movement), conservatard, and Republitard have thus far failed to achieve widespread currency.” 

excerpts from: How to insult your political opponents like an American

http://blog.oxforddictionaries.com/2014/11/political-insults/

Liberal8

How can anyone be “free” by insulting or putting down others? It CAN’T BE DONE! It is neither logical nor possible. Those negative terms from the chart above are NOT coming from as you would expect, little children. And they are not just coming from Mr., Mrs. & Ms. John or Patty Q. Common Public. Oh no, these words often originate with and/or are coming from our supposed servant/leaders. These insults are coming from, men and women highly educated and even financially successful (at least after they get their claws on other people’s money and resources) that are acting like, little children! Remember the Latin word, educatus? It means to lead out. To educate (“to lead out”) aligns, meshes or lines up perfectly with the words, “free” and “freedom” and page, pages (Latin liber a collection of books, hence Library) book, books and what liberal arts were supposed to be for, to make people “free!”

It is this two-party system (corrupt system), the Democrat and the Republican parties that have each and both and together, hijacked our liberty! As an expression goes…

Liberal9

…”there’s not a dime’s difference between them!”

Why a “dime?” Well, it is pretty thin and in fact, it’s not worth much; can’t buy much and is, the thinnest of all our current metal currency that presently, still, reads,

“In Congress the Media (oops sorry about that) “God” (soon to be crossed out too?) “We trust.”

This two-party is more like some big inverted V (^). Down shere,’ they look like Dumbo the Elephant and Buffo the Jackass. They’re miles apart in difference or so it seems. But way up yonder,’ there’s “not a dime’s difference between them.” Up there, they’re BFF’s and thick as thieves. Down here, we would just like them to get along and get things done. They will, if they have to, I guess? They call it, “The Compromise.”

Liberal10

“OK, today, you get the right pocket and I’ll take the left!”

Perhaps like you, I’m just an independent? No, I’m not a member of the Independent Party, just an independent. For myself anyway, I am an independent because, that’s what it says in the Declaration of Independence, the ‘apple of gold!’ This is what the Constitution, the ‘picture or frame of silver’ says. The picture or frame is, made for the apple and not the apple for the picture! And it is ALL, to protect and preserve. every single one of, WE the People! Oh, but what am I saying? The Declaration of Independence? That’s old school; just a dead and dusty parchment? And the Constitution, well, that’s just a flawed document anyway? But I’m just naive  enough, stupid enough and foolish enough to think, I’m one of, WE the People; I’m an independent. And besides all of that, I have never been invited to anyone’s party! 🙂

PART 3 of 4

Liberal2We heard about the unfair advantages of the 1% at the expense of or on the backs of, the 99% or the rest of us. We are told it’s the mega-n-aires’ (mega million-aires’ and mega billion-aires’) and BIG OIL, and BIG BUSINESS that have taken advantage of the ‘system’. But who wrote, writes, controls and benefits the most, from the ‘system? Who writes all the laws, enforces all the laws and interprets all the laws? The legislative, executive and judicial branches of government – POLITICIANS, that’s who! Yes, even the judicial branch has become political! Who gets to decide what their rules and regulations are? Congress. Who gets to decide when and how much to raise their own salaries and benefits; the salaries and benefits of the other branches and even if or if not that the minimum wage gets raised, for the rest of us? Congress. They ARE, the way less than the 1%, for the rest of us, the 99%!!!

forcing the breaking of the chains that bind…

under the all-inclusive warm blanket of tolerance…

Why do they do this? Why do they seem to champion everyone and every thing? Could it possibly be, to win votes and maintain their control? Why do we continue to let them do this? Could it possibly be, for the promises they made? How well can one keep a promise, when there really is NOT enough to fulfill them? And the promises are made with full knowledge that it can NOT be fully, fulfilled! Still, I guess people want to believe in magic, fairy dust, hitting the lottery and all manner of fantasies? And in practice, they pit all of us together against each other because, we must be tolerant and accommodating of all people? So what if some lose and others win? Actually, there are no winners in this model, EVERYONE LOSES something, a little or a lot!

…Liberty is smothered

…Liberty is smothered

Now along with taking from the haves and giving to the have-nots, this liberal thinking NEVER takes into consideration, what happens to those that much is taken from. It’s one thing to want to help people and to save this or that, but what are the ramifications of these choices? How do good intentions, negatively impact others? You might want to save the great white sharks, but how does this impact my right to swim in the ocean?

You might want to protect chipmunks, but how does their increased population effect the integrity of my concrete sidewalk and the crawl space underneath my porch, where they tunnel constantly and live? Well sure, I have one of those ‘Have-A-Heart’ traps. What am I supposed to do with them after, I catch them on my own property? Let them go? Then why catch them in the first place? Transfer them someplace else? Sure, allow me to force my problems onto others? Oh, and if caught, I’d get fined, for moving them in my area, more than 3 miles because, their diseases (if they have any) might be different from those over three miles away. And did I mention, most likely they will come back if left, less than five miles away? And I would have to pay for and have to have a permit to transfer them. Am I then therefore, being forced to destroy them? And if I did or do, am I forced to run the risk of being reported, for animal abuse?

Just so you know, I put myself in this position, all by myself because, we just wanted to feed the birds. Birds? Oh, so many I can’t count them and cannot afford to feed them, but once a week. I made them dependent along with the chipmunks, birds of prey, foxes and coyotes that are now attracted because of, the abundance of birdseed and birds! Apparently I, I have screwed up the entire Eco system, where we live! 🙂

But YES, your desire to help others; save stuff and your freedom of will, deprives me of mine as well as all the critters I have kept from independently, fending for themselves. I have become a horrible and despicable person just because, I like watching the birds and wanted to feed them in exchange for my enjoyment of them.  🙂

Under the banner of non-offending and political correctness…

Under the banner of non-offending and political correctness…

Oh, I should not be allowed to express my opinion, UNLESS IT AGREES WITH YOURS? I shouldn’t use the word “liberal” as if, it were a four-letter expletive? I am probably offending someone? I am not not being sensitive or politically correct?

 

…Freedom of Speech is gagged

…Freedom of Speech is gagged

Perhaps the worst thing of all, is that if they do not help or “free” or “liberate” others, the deprived and down-trodden would not be able to do this for themselves? Somewhere in the twisted mind of the liberals, they must actually believe they are better than and smarter than, those they want to help? They surely must believe that without them, others cannot raise themselves up or “free” themselves? Surely they must feel quilty that they have so much, when others have so little? Giving out of guilt especially with someone else’s money or stuff, does not sound too “freeing,” to me!

This whole B.S. robs people of their initiative, their spirit, their confidence and from ever realizing their full potential! Generation after generation are born into and enslaved to, social programs, public assistance and welfare! Month after month, people are paid not to work and are paid more than they could make on their own, without the necessary specialized skills, training and education. There is no incentive to rise up and out of bondage. Instead of a hand up, people are given an almost endless supply of hand outs. Instead of teaching people how to fish that they would never starve a lifetime, the hungry are fed a fish, for the day and day after day. That is until, the fish run out or there is no more means (money and etc.) to acquire the fish or the fish become extinct. You know, this whole things sounds like a virus. It takes and destroys everything in its path and eventually dies off itself, due to, not having anything left to destroy.

PART 2 of 4

The word “liberal” has been associated in politics with a particular political party, the Democrat Party. It has been tied to socialism. But those in the party, do not like to be referred to as socialists and prefer to use the word “progressive” or our word, “liberal.”

But as a political ideology, being a “liberal” would include social and economic theories and practices. On the surface, a “liberal” champions all those that may seem to have no voice, minorities, the poor, down-trodden, the all-forms-of-challenges, the disenfranchised and etc. This certainly sounds like me! I mean, I’m for helping people who, for what ever reasons, cannot help themselves. Sure, I’m for everyone having the same opportunities in order that every one of us, WE the People, can enjoy our inalienable rights. Such rights as: Life, ‘Liberty’ and the right to, Pursue whatever makes us individually Happy, without burdening anyone else or depriving them of their same inalienable rights! But in practice, “liberalism” and “liberals” fail! It is like the true words of “liberalism” and “liberals” have been hijacked! The words have been re-defined and made into something in practice, something that they are, absolutely NOT!

The People of the United States have long been one of the most charitable people in the world! I believe current data would show that this is still true today. People do want to help others! Parents want to help their children and they want them to have more, be more and do more with their lives than what was available to them! On the surface, what’s wrong with any of this? Nothing, absolutely nothing! But we as a people have, a tendency to give out of our need. This can be argued as NOT being such a good thing. Consider instructions given to the passengers on a plane by the attendants. Do they not instruct, in case of an emergency, to first take care of yourself with say, the oxygen mask and then to help your children? Yes, of course, every airline tell us this! Common sense explains why. If we cannot breathe, we can’t really help our children can we? NO, we cannot! As to giving and receiving, isn’t it or wouldn’t it be better, if we all had more than we needed and that we give from our abundance and not out of our need? Sure, you know this is true. But still, many of us, maybe most of us are, often willing to give out of our need. And here is where the current words of “liberalism” and “liberal” break down and fail as, they are defined and practiced today. The key word is, “willing.”

forcing chains to be shattered just to make more…

…bind all to bondage

If you decide and are willing to give to someone or to something out of your need, it is your choice. You are “free” to do so. But “liberalism” and “liberals” remove this choice; this freedom of will. A certain percentage of the population decide, for the good of others, to take from them that have and give it to them that have not. In a court of law, this is a crime and it’s called stealing or theft. The fictional and romantic deeds of Robin Hood and his Merry Men/Maidens might sound good on paper, or view well at the movies, but they were still thieves, robbing from the rich and giving to the poor. Now one could argue that the king stole all the money from the poor in the first place, but how does the same crime, justify the ends?  Oh sure, morally, to take back what belongs to you may be argued as NOT stealing or theft, but legally, and yes, we are still technically a republic and based on laws, it would be breaking the law. Stealing is, still stealing! Stealing is stealing and theft is theft!

Modern-day liberalism borders on “taxation without representation.” Sure, we supposedly or technically have representatives or representation in Congress, but who gets to decide who gets what, who gets taxed, how much you are taxed, where your money goes and who benefits from it? Certainly NOT the individual! But 435 representatives, 100 senators, 9 supreme court justices, 1 president and perhaps, a few thousand bureaucrats make most of the decisions, for over 300 million of the rest of us! Not only that, there is really NOT enough to go around, to meet every need. We know this is true because, we are in debt to the tune of trillions of dollars and we are borrowing money, not to pay off any of this debt, but mostly just to pay the interest, on servicing the debt. And speaking of debt, why do WE often hear about “raising the debt ceiling?” Would not a better and more accurate analogy be, digging a deeper hole?

Modern-day “liberals” and “liberalism” might have good intentions, but it removes from every individual, the “free” choice. It forces us to pay beyond our need, forces us deeper into debt, forces these debts upon our children, their children and on and on, way into the future. IT CANNOT BE SUSTAINED! If it cannot be sustained, there goes the future! If I am broke, you cannot get anymore from me and that’s just a fact. Forcing you to fill my lack will eventually make you go broke and that’s a fact. This is what is called, ‘redistribution of wealth.’ Nothing is ever made nor is wealth ever created, it’s just redistributed, somewhere else to someone else. Now why would any intelligent person (and most of our politicians are, if not intelligent, they are, highly educated) want to continue such an idiotic ideology and practice?

To begin, though this post may appear to be lengthy, it has taken me years to be able to understand my own personal feelings about this subject and to articulate it or put it into words. Perhaps for some, I am merely “preaching to the choir,” as it is already something you agree with? To others, no matter how logical it may be, if I try to convince you beyond your will, won’t you remain of the same opinion still? But to those that are open-minded, unsure or are, “on the fence,” perhaps it will be of some benefit to you? That is my intention!

But to understand why I am not a liberal, we need to understand what a liberal is. One would think that the dictionary would be the best place to define the word, but it’s not! According to dictionary.com, there are 13+ definitions. No help! So let’s look at the origin. Again, according to dictionary.com which gets its information from the following:

 

Collins English Dictionary – Complete & Unabridged 2012 Digital Edition
© William Collins Sons & Co. Ltd. 1979, 1986 © HarperCollins
Publishers 1998, 2000, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2012

We read—

 

“1325-75; Middle English < Latin līberālis of freedom, befitting the free, equivalent to līber free + -ālis -al1”

 

So, līberālis basically meant “free” + “all” or “free all.” This was what it meant to be liberal or to be a liberal. OK, now we are getting somewhere. Hmmm, is the word ‘Liberty’ a derivative? I wonder if there is an association with the word, “library?” In fact, just a small accent mark is all that separates the root words of say, ‘liberty’  [Latin – līber] and ‘Library’ [Latin – liber] which is a collection of books. ‘Liber (without the accent mark)  from Latin is, defined as —”of a tree, the inner, bark: Because dried bark was anciently used to write on, a book, work, treatise:

 

“In ancient Roman religion and mythology, Liber (“the free one”; Latin: Līber [ˈliː.bɛr]), also known as Liber Pater (“the free Father”) was a god of viticulture and wine, fertility and freedom. He was a patron deity of Rome‘s plebeians and was part of their Aventine Triad. His festival of Liberalia (March 17) became associated with free speech and the rights attached to coming of age. His cult and functions were increasingly associated with Romanised forms of the Greek Dionysus/Bacchus, whose mythology he came to share.”

Grimal, Pierre, The Dictionary of Classical Mythology, Wiley-Blackwell, 1996,

 

Liberal arts were taught and practiced in the ancient world. Perhaps at sometime, I will write a post about ‘Liberal Arts’ as it is, really, very interesting! The ancient Greeks and Romans likened these arts (7 total) as (knowledge/wisdom/understanding) being like, ‘ways’ of water, rivers flowing that would make one “free.” Now the 20th century only ended about 15 years ago. That’s not too long ago. For most of its 100 years, there were liberal colleges, liberal arts and a degree in liberal arts, used to mean something; it mattered; it was important. Liberal arts were to “broaden” the student’s understanding and make them able (“free”) to make a greater contribution to society as a whole and make them each, more successful, for themselves, their families, friends and again, society as a whole.

The Libertarian Party and I suppose to some degree or another, the Tea Party, has its roots in the Latin root word of līber, which means, “free.” On the surface, all this “free” stuff sounds great! Who wouldn’t want to be “free” or made “free” by knowledge, wisdom and understanding? No one right? Oh sure, everyone wants to be “free.” But the problem is, the word “liberal” does not mean what we think it means, as it is used today.

What do you get when you pair two lawyers (one a Rhodes Scholar) with Uranium?

TheClintons

 

“The headline on the website Pravda trumpeted President Vladimir V. Putin’s latest coup, its nationalistic fervor recalling an era when its precursor served as the official mouthpiece of the Kremlin: “Russian Nuclear Energy Conquers the World.” 

“The article, in January 2013, detailed how the Russian atomic energy agency, Rosatom, had taken over a Canadian company with uranium-mining stakes stretching from Central Asia to the American West. The deal made Rosatom one of the world’s largest uranium producers and brought Mr. Putin closer to his goal of controlling much of the global uranium supply chain.” 

“But the untold story behind that story is one that involves not just the Russian president, but also a former American president and a woman who would like to be the next one.

At the heart of the tale are several men, leaders of the Canadian mining industry, who have been major donors to the charitable endeavors of former President Bill Clinton and his family. Members of that group built, financed and eventually sold off to the Russians a company that would become known as Uranium One.” 

“Beyond mines in Kazakhstan that are among the most lucrative in the world, the sale gave the Russians control of one-fifth of all uranium production capacity in the United States. Since uranium is considered a strategic asset, with implications for national security, the deal had to be approved by a committee composed of representatives from a number of United States government agencies. Among the agencies that eventually signed off was the State Department, then headed by Mr. Clinton’s wife, Hillary Rodham Clinton.” 

“As the Russians gradually assumed control of Uranium One in three separate transactions from 2009 to 2013, Canadian records show, a flow of cash made its way to the Clinton Foundation. Uranium One’s chairman used his family foundation to make four donations totaling $2.35 million. Those contributions were not publicly disclosed by the Clintons, despite an agreement Mrs. Clinton had struck with the Obama White House to publicly identify all donors. Other people with ties to the company made donations as well.” 

“And shortly after the Russians announced their intention to acquire a majority stake in Uranium One, Mr. Clinton received $500,000 for a Moscow speech from a Russian investment bank with links to the Kremlin that was promoting Uranium One stock.”
