And then what?

Is a Civil War possible here in America? I would have to say, Yes. So with that in mind, I looked into 3 Wars in the past a War of Aggression and Conquest, a Revolution and a Civil War. I did this looking for similarities and how the circumstances of each could come into play in modern America and in fact the World.

A Civil War is defined as; a war between opposing groups of citizens of the same country.

By the definition above there is no way possible that the War of Aggression and Conquest 1861-1865 could have or should have ever been called the American Civil War. It was not the citizens of the North fighting amongst themselves, and it certainly was not the citizens of the South fighting amongst themselves.

There was another definition; a war waged to overthrow the government of ones own country. Even by this definition the War of Aggression and Conquest could not be called a Civil War. There were two distinct countries involved. The United States of America and the Confederate States of America, the Union and the Confederacy. The Confederacy nor the citizens of the Confederacy did not wage a war with the Union to overthrow the government of the United States of America. The citizens of the Confederacy certainly did not wage war against the Confederate States of America in an attempt to overthrow the government of the Confederacy.

There was even another definition; a war waged between geographic regions within the same country. While this definition comes close, it still does not fit the bill. True enough North and South are two geographic regions and they could be regions in and of the same country. The only way the War of Aggression and Conquest meets this definition is that the Confederate States of America was in the South, and the United States of America was in the North. America from the time of the Articles of Confederation until now has always been two countries in one, in more ways than one.

There was yet another definition; a war waged between political factions. A war based on politics now this really comes close, nearly a “perfect match”, close but no “cigar”. I encourage you to dive deep into this area on your own. There is much hiding in the shadows in American politics, then and now. Politics and politicians started the rift and placed the kindling.

It was not the Confederacy that started the war, the Confederacy was forced to fight. Forced to fight for its survival. But just what was the Confederacy fighting for? You can answer this for yourselves. But you must look at the reasons and the timing of the Southern States seceding. First was South Carolina then 6 more for a total of 7. Later 4 more seceded for a total of 11. Then look at what would be the benefit(s) of remaining in the Union. You may be surprised at what you find.

The Russian Revolution 1917. This was a two stage Revolution. First Removing the Czar in February(forced abdication and subsequent arrest). Second the “Reds” coming to power in October. Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

The Spanish Civil War 1936-1939. This was a Civil War based on politics and political factions, citizens fighting citizens within the same country, overthrowing a government. At the conclusion General Franco became dictator(1939-1975). Atrocities and Retributions abounded during and after the fighting.

So let’s get back to the question, is a Civil War possible in America? My answer was and is Yes. If or when it happens it will not be a repeat of 1861-1865, it instead will be a combination of the Russian Revolution(1917)and the Spanish Civil War(1936-1939). The ground work has been laid, the kindling is in place, put there by the activists just waiting for a spark.

America is a nation divided, always has been always will be. This is best proven by some of the founding documents, most notably the Constitution. The Constitution established a government based on compromise. The Framers made compromises to get a document that enough states would support. Each state got a little through negotiation but no one got everything they wanted. Negotiation was the key, though now it has been made apparent that not all of the delegates negotiated in good faith. The big government types left themselves a little “wiggle room” in the Constitution but said there was nothing to fear.

America is at this point more divided than ever, and unfortunately it appears that compromising and negotiating will not and can not heal or even lessen the divide. Some groups want what they want and will resort to violence or threats of violence to get it. It is difficult, no impossible, to negotiate with a person or a group who is unwilling to make a compromise. Strangely enough most of the divisions in this Republic today are based on politics and demagoguery instead of geographical/cultural differences.

Think on this for just a moment. How many in America are calling President Trump an illegitimate president. There has been a lot of time and energy devoted/wasted trying to tie the election of President Trump to Russian influence in our elections. There are even some democrats seeking to find ways to remove President Trump from office, whether by impeachment or invoking the 25th Amendment. They want him out of office voluntarily(abdicate)or forced(impeached or the 25th). They would probably rather that he just abdicate, not as messy. I suspect that some republicans fit into this as well.

How many in America are promoting, supporting and encouraging violence as an end to political differences? The most prevalent in this area are the entertainers. There is another aspect to consider when examining the Spanish Civil War. The Fifth Column, the enemy within. Four columns assaulting from outside and the fifth on the inside aiding the four. Think about this, we can all agree that the Media is against President Trump, that could be one column. The anti-fascist element, that could be another column. The illegal aliens could be another column. Those who fall into the heated and inflammatory rhetoric could be yet another column. But who or what would make up the Fifth Column, the enemy within, the enemy among us?

So what would happen if Civil War was visited upon this Republic, citizens taking up arms against their fellow citizens? Will/would it just happen or would/will it be forced to happen? First let me say this; There will only be fighters and victims. The surest way to become a victim is not to pick a side, there will be no fence-setters. The federal government will step in and depending on who heads the government depends on how heavy the hand is. Martial Law will most certainly be declared as Local Law-Enforcement will quickly be overwhelmed. The Writ of Habeas Corpus will most certainly be suspended. The Military will be placed between a rock and a hard place, they will be forced to either take up arms against their fellow citizens or take up arms against their brothers. The same goes for Law-Enforcement. The entire country will be put between a rock and a hard place.

People should spend some time thinking about the aftermath of a Civil War. There will be no way back, not for this Republic, it will cease to exist. The land will still exist but the dream will be extinguished. Atrocities and Retributions will abound during and after the fighting, especially after. They always do.

There is another thing to consider. If there is a Civil War there will be a vacuum, a vacuum that must and will be filled. What will fill the vacuum? Look at the Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine.

There is another thing to consider. The Civil Wars in Syria and Ukraine have had little effect on the global economy. What effect would be felt by the global economy if America were to fall into a Civil War? Something tells me that the U.S. is not going to have a Civil War for purely financial reasons. The reason is that it is not time to sink the global economy, not yet anyway. Even the smartest animal trainer knows that the animal they have trained so well and for so long can turn on them at a moments notice. Just because the time is not right for them it may happen(ready or not)anyway.

Just in case the handlers may have “hedged” their bets. Remember back to the “Fast and Furious” gun running episode. Did all of the guns find their way to Mexico? Would it be possible that some of them did but the majority of them are still in America? A possible cache for a possible Fifth Column. You would want your side to come out on top.

A Civil War would usher out the last President and Usher in the first Dictator. Who will/would be which?

So let me ask those who think violence is the way to solve/settle political differences this; Are those that inspire you to action insulated from what they cause? You can bet that they are. Most if not all of those who inspire your acts of violence are nothing more than “attention whores”, they say what they say just to get attention. Learn to think or yourself. You at present are acting out on their behalf.

Be careful what you ask for and understand the consequences, intended and unintended.

Just tell us the truth, for once

And again the Republicans have failed. But, then they never had any intention of coming through and never will. Campaign promises(lies)left unfulfilled, but then they have been making promises since the days of Reagan to secure the southern border. Actually, I am not at all shocked that the Republicans in Congress failed the voters(time and again)who sent them to office. Failing is their only success. At least they are not a total loss, they would be a total loss if they did absolutely nothing.

By all appearances the Republicans have “mystical powers”. They can talk out of both sides of their mouths at the same time, and the audiences hear different things. One could say that one audience hears what the politicians say and the other audience hears what the politicians mean.

You had nearly 7 years to come up with a “fix” for Obamacare, and that almost 7 years appears to have been fruitless. You had no plan, you made no plan, no I take that back you had a plan. Your plan all along was to “bitch and moan” then do exactly nothing about Obamacare. The House took two half-hearted stabs at it, nothing. Now the Senate has taken their stab at it and again nothing.

You seem to have time to do everything but your job. You had time to practice for a baseball game. You even found time to play the game. Quick question for you. Had the republicans been busy taking care of business at work instead of out “goofing off” on our dime would the fellow from Illinois been able to do what he did? You claim that the baseball game is a long-standing tradition and that may be so but it is not important. There is another long-standing tradition for Congress and that is to legislate actually getting things accomplished, and that is important. You put “play” before or instead of work. We out here in work-a-day America play after the work is done.

You seem to have an abundance of time to go on recess and take one vacation after another. You seem to have time to go on the “news” programs and give interviews. You seem to have time to “probe” and hold hearings. You seem to find Russians everywhere, while finding them nowhere.

Speaking of vacations and recesses, you have a vacation coming up real soon. When you come back from your vacation it will be the middle of July. Then you will have about 2 weeks before your August recess. How much can you get accomplished in just 2 weeks? I mean after all you had nearly 7 years to come up with a plan to repeal Obamacare and apparently that was not enough time. So in 2 weeks you plan to come up with a “fix” for Obamacare. Do not forget we are still waiting on a tax “fix” and a border wall among other things. Speaking of the border issue, how much time do you really need? I guess over 30 years was not enough. Seems to me some one said something like; Do this now and never have to do it again.

You people are truly overworked. Oh, by-the-way September comes after August, that means budget time. You have the same amount of days available to work as do most Americans that still have jobs. I put in over 40 hours a week and still manage to have time to goof off. How many hours do you manage to put in every week actually working? My guess is next to none.

So tell us the truth. Are you ever going to secure the southern border? Are you even planning on “fixing” Obamacare? Are you even planning on addressing the tax issue? My guess is NO to each question.

Maybe I am being to hard on you. After all why should you do anything right now, you have plenty of time. Next year you could do it all. After all if you did these things now the voters might forget. If you manage to get it all done next year it would still be fresh in the voters minds. Would it not? This is not an election year, next year is. No, this is not your plan.

Do nothing this year and next year and the voters will remember. President Trump does not face re-election until 2020, while the House as well as 1/3 of the Senate face re-election in 2018. Is that your plan to do nothing and risk losing control of the House and the Senate in 2018? If that were to happen the years 2019 and 2020 would be lost, absolutely nothing meaningful would get done. That would place the re-election of President Trump in jeopardy. My guess is this is your plan.

Which is it you despise the most President Trump, the American people or America?

Awareness of Surroundings

I have to wonder how many in todays times are actually of their surroundings. I wonder if they know what is around them, and perhaps more importantly what is missing from their surroundings. Is today the same as yesterday? The day before? Even last week? Do they even know something is missing? Is there something there that should not be? Is something missing that should be there, and usually is there?

Being aware of what goes on from day-to-day is basic intelligence gathering. The sudden absence of a normally present thing should be a signal or even a warning that something is wrong. The sudden appearance of something that has never been present before should also be a signal or warning that something is wrong. London and its citizens have suffered through 3 terrorist attacks in recent weeks. The first was on a bridge, the second was at a concert and the third was another bridge. Having never visited London I do not know the lay-out of your city or the habits of the people. I would expect that pedestrian traffic is common, in fact expected and normal in a large city such as London. I would expect both native Europeans as well as non-native Europeans walk about the city even using bridges as pedestrians. I do not keep up with your death totals nor the injured, besides I very seriously doubt that the breakdown lists the race, color or religion of the victims. Probably only the names and ages are given and possibly a photo.

By all accounts every large city in Europe has a Muslim population. I am quite sure that not all of them have their very own car. Point is if they are not riding they are walking to get somewhere. If you are out walking daily and encounter Muslims and then one day there are none there is a problem, some people call that a clue. Now I would not expect to encounter a Muslim out Christmas shopping or at a concert, but if they normally are out walking I would certainly expect to encounter them day-in and day-out. Were there any Muslim victims in the attacks, killed or injured? I do not mean the attackers, they are not victims they are criminal murderous vermin.

This brings a few questions that should be asked.
Do Muslims cross the bridges in London on foot? If they do, were there any Muslim pedestrians crossing during the times of the two pedestrian attacks? If they do not, then one would not expect to encounter them there. London, I am told is absolutely covered with CCTV, the cameras will have that answer.
If they are normally there but not there during the attacks, why were they suddenly missing? If they are suddenly missing then the people of London have a very serious problem, as do the citizens of every city and town in the West. They knew not to be there. How did they know not to be there? Coincidence?

In response

This post is in response to a survey I received in the mail the other day, a survey from and commissioned by the RNC. The official title is; Congressional District Census. Yep, straight from the Chairwoman of the RNC. Even came with a “document tracking code”. There is a “census” and a four page(two pages front and back)accompanying letter.

First let me tell you about the “census”.
There is a header on the “census”; Special Notice: You have been selected to represent Voters in Florida’s 5th Congressional District. Enclosed please find documents registered I your name. I thought we already had a “politician” from your Party representing Florida’s 5th Congressional District. Actually what he represents is the RNC, Special Interest Groups and his donors not the Voters, the Middle-Class.

The “census” is broken down into 5 sections.
Section 1-Political Profile. If you really knew me you would already know the answers to these 6 Questions, after all you said I would be Representing the Voters in Florida’s 5th Congressional District. 6 pointless questions.
Section 2-General Issues. Oh, you have to be kidding me. The questions in this section insult my intelligence, especially number 5. Do you support a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress? Yes, No or No Opinion? The question I would like to ask the Chairwoman of the RNC is this; Do you or would you support a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress? Yes, No or No Opinion? Does or would the RNC? I know that the Congress critters would not, they like the power, control and prestige. And then there is question 6; Do you think “political correctness” has gotten out of hand in America? Yes, No, or No Opinion? I ask you Madam and the RNC the same question. A total of 8 insulting questions.
Section 3-Domestic Issues. Another insulting 19 questions.
Section 4-National Defense. 9 more insulting questions.
Section 5-Certification and Reply. This is by far my favorite part of the “census”. Only 1 question. But there is no place to mark the census No or No Opinion. There are however two ways to say yes. The question is. Can the RNC count on your help to better deliver our message as we fight to Make America Great Again? There is a place to mark yes and the usual blocks to mark for a contribution amount. There is another block, one in which there is no donation amount, but they do want the returning sap to enclose $15 to pay for the cost of processing the “census”. There is yet another block to mark certifying that the answers are your own.

Well Madam, it is only by me exercising good manners that prevents me from telling you where you should deposit this “census”. You can trust me when I say there is no block for me to mark. My answers are not; yes, no or no opinion, I do have an opinion, though you may not want it.

Now let me conduct my own census of the Chairwoman and the RNC. Just what is the message you wish to get out?

The RNC is no more than a slick marketing operation for politicians you are not the opposition party.

Now let me address the four page accompanying letter. You ask for donations to the RNC on page 1. You ask for donations to the RNC twice on page four. There is not a “message” to deliver in the whole damn letter.

You will not be receiving one red cent from this representative of the Voters in Florida’s 5th Congressional District.

Now I close with this. The money you wasted printing and mailing your census could have been put to better use. Like maybe securing the Southern Border like you have promised since Regan.

What was done with it?

Today marks the 73rd Anniversary of the D-Day Landings in Normandy, France. Tuesday June the 6th 1944 Operation Neptune, from the sea. Sadly some in America and Europe, especially France, will go through this day without even a thought of the events of 73 years ago.

Most of Western Europe had been overrun by Adolph Hitler and his German Military. Entire countries were occupied by the Nazis. Groups of people had been rounded up and placed in concentration camps. People were executed or exterminated for their religions or for a myriad of other reasons or for no reason at all, millions of people were killed. Some of the people of the occupied countries collaborated with the occupying Nazis. Some of the people of the occupied countries continued the fight, the resistance, after their military forces surrendered to the Germans.

The Great Crusade, Operation Overlord. The military intent of Operation Overlord was to drive the German forces from the occupied countries of Western Europe and ultimately to destroy the German Military. A Crusade to return to the people what had been taken from them in conquest, their land and homes. The German military was a Military of Conquest. The Allied Military was a Military of Liberation.

The Crusaders landed at Normandy then moved across Western Europe. They drove out the Conquerors and gave the lands back to the people. The lands were Liberated and then given back to the rightful owners, France was given back to the French and so forth. The Liberated countries were once again free to chart their own destinies. Free from occupation. Sound familiar?

That was then this is now.
Western Europe is once again being invaded, not by a foreign military but a foreign religion. The new invasion is not like the last. The last time was with force, military force. This time it is being done with immigration, the invaders are actually being invited in. They are being allowed in. The new normal, Terrorists and Terrorism. Who would have ever thought that living with Terrorists and Terrorism would be considered “part and parcel” of normal life in the civilized West? Is that not what some of your “exalted Leaders” have said? Or at least something similar?

Now to the Citizens of the Western European countries. On this day go and visit the graveyards of those who died helping to Liberate you and your lands from the last invading hoards. Hundreds of Thousands, if not Millions of brave men gave their lives to rescue you from invaders and occupiers. As you visit the grave sites ask yourself a question. Have I done them justice? Reflect on this for just a minute. Men died helping during the effort to Liberate you and your lands, Crusaders. Men also died in effort to keep your lands occupied and keep you as a conquered people, Conquerors.

What did you do with it when it was Liberated and given back to you?

You, the citizens of Western Europe may yet lose your lands because of the latest “invasion”. Unless you come to your senses and exercise some common sense. It will not be taken from you, you will instead give it away. You may once again need to be Liberated. Crusaders may be in short supply. Your own doing will be your undoing. It is hard to save one from ones self. I do pray for Europe and the citizens of Europe everyday. I pray that you come to your senses before it is too late.

Do not look to be Liberated again from “across the pond”. We too seem too be lacking in the area of exercising some common sense. We may just be too busy to come to your aid, not because we don’t want to, but because we won’t be able to. I also pray for this Republic and the citizens of this Republic everyday. I also pray that we come to our senses before it is too late.

I and many others have said that not all Muslims, followers of Islam, are terrorists. It is time for the non-terrorist Muslims, followers of Islam, to step forward and prove it. Not with words but with deeds.

Reclaiming a little America Sovereignty

Withdrawing from the non-binding climate thingy was the best news possible for this Republic. Reclaiming a little of American Sovereignty. The Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives are going nuts, again a good thing.

I did set a fishing pole(rod and reel)and associated fishing tackle on the front and back porches of my home just in case the seas did begin to rise. The front porch faces east towards the Atlantic ocean, the back porch faces west towards the Gulf of Mexico. I also removed the tie-downs on my boat, again just in case. I keep going out to check, nothing yet.

I wonder if the rise in sea levels would be effected any if every Climate Activist would jump in to the Oceans and Seas of the world. I know that they worry so(they claim)over the Polar Bears, I thought that by now they would be swimming north to save the poor Polar Bears. Haven’t heard of any activists swimming in any direction as of yet.

Well that is enough humor, for now at least. On to more serious matters.

I do believe that God made a promise, a promise recorded in the Bible. One by which he would not Destroy the World again with Water. A promise sealed with a Rainbow. Maybe the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives forgot that little tidbit. The Rainbow symbolizes a Promise from God, it does not symbolize the alternative lifestyle of some people. Using the most beautiful Promise from God to mankind to represent the most perverted lifestyle does not have any thing to do with fulfilling a Promise.

Perhaps if God had not been kicked out of the Schools and almost every other aspect of everyday life, by the Liberal Leftist Socialist Progressives, more people would come to the realization that Water will never be used to destroy the World again. It also amazes me that so many clergymen believe in the rising sea levels being a threat to mankind. The Rainbow in the sky appears before, during and after rain and sometimes for no reason at all. When I see one I am reminded of the Promise, the Promise from God, to me it says Fear Not.

Moving on again.

Carrying on an American tradition. The withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord was basically an act of Secession. It was not Treason or anything of the like. It was a single(first)step towards reclaiming American Sovereignty. The whole thing as written was bad for America. President Trump knew it was bad for America, he did the right thing by Seceding from it. Seceding from the Paris deal was the right thing to do, the right thing for America to do. America should have never been in it to start with.

America had in the past removed itself from things that were harmful to America. Remaining in a union with Great Britain in 1776, for instance was and would be harmful to America. America seceded from Great Britain. America did not consider the opinion of Great Britain, or the opinion the rest of the world for that matter. America did what was best for America, and should always do so.

Are the Climate Activists now going to wage war against America and force America back into the Paris Accords? Much Like the U.S. Government and the Northern States did in dealing with the Southern States when they seceded.

There is perhaps many more acts of Secession America should engage in. One that I would like to see is that America secede from the United Nations. Yes, I would like to see America secede from the United Nations and then promptly kick their butts out of this Sovereign Republic. Remaining in the United Nation provides no benefit for America.

Do you think the rest of the member nations would be foolish enough to wage a war against America in an attempt force America back into the United Nations at the point of a Bloody Bayonet?

Long live the spirit of Secession. While that spirit lives the American Spirit is Live and Well. Perhaps with a little helping of Nullification.

One last bit of humor before closing.
Went to check the rising Ocean Levels, nothing yet. If the Ocean will not come to me then by God, I will go to it. It looks like I will still have to buy a House Boat to be able to fish from the porch of my house. Perhaps I will instead buy a Mobile Home and fit it with pontoons, just in case. That way I would have a home if the sea levels rise and then recede again. The mobile home with pontoons is a much better idea, two for one, as house boats tend to lean a bit when on dry land, unless it is a flat bottom house boat. Oh, the decisions we must face.
