What if? Part 1

Some talking-heads and pundits on the right are spending a lot of time, energy and ink discussing the possibility of a civil war happening in America and what would be the cause or causes. They seem to think there would be two triggering events. One of the reasons would be the impeachment of the president. I suppose by impeachment they mean a guilty finding and removal from office.

The democrats and their allies in the media have been beating the impeachment drum for a considerable length of time. Some have been beating this drum since election night 2016. The democrat leadership would not venture into these waters until public opinion showed support for impeachment. According to the polls the pendulum swung in favor of impeachment. We now have an impeachment inquiry in the House. A word about polls and polling data. I fail to understand why politicians from either party still trust and rely on polls, given that most all polls had the democrat nominee handily winning the 2016 presidential election. Yet they still site poll results.

The democrats in Congress have pretty much painted themselves into a corner over impeachment of the President. Even if they at some point conclude that they have made a poor choice there is no way they can not bring the articles of impeachment and still manage to save face. They have already crossed the Rubicon on this.

At this point most on the right think and indeed believe that there is no way the Senate will vote to remove the President. You will notice that I said most on the right. I personally do not place that much confidence or trust in the republicans in the Senate. More than one of them wanted to be President and some may be harboring a grudge, after all some unkind words were exchanged during the republican primaries and since. Jealousy and revenge have driven many to extremes.

There is also this to note. The democrat leadership in the House did not go forward until the polls had shown that the pendulum had swung in favor of impeachment. Why the wait? Some democrats believe they already have enough evidence to have the vote. The word ironclad came up the other day, the House would not proceed until there was an ironclad case. So I pulled out Webster’s and looked up the word ironclad, having no obvious weakness. I think they now wait for enough republican support in the Senate to remove the President, there may also be one or two democrat hold-outs.

Let’s say the House charges and the Senate convicts. The President is removed. Will this trigger the civil war predicted by the talking-heads and pundits? Think about it. How often and how many times have the republicans in Congress(House and Senate)disappointed the voters? A provision in the Constitution would have been followed. I do not think this would trigger a civil war, however some isolated violence could possibly break out. It would however guarantee one thing, there would never be another republican elected to a national office, which would lead to total democrat control which would lead to a socialist state.

What if the talking-heads and pundits from the first paragraph have it exactly backwards? Would the President not being impeached lead to civil war, started by the left.

Let’s say that the House, for whatever reason, does not introduce and vote on the articles of impeachment. Many if not most on the left fully expect the House to follow through on impeachment. They will at the very minimum be severely ticked off if the democrat controlled House fails them. How will they react?

The House could charge and the Senate could acquit. Again the leftists will be mightily ticked. How will the leftists react?

It was not the right that were rioting, burning and breaking things. From what I have seen the right, with very few exceptions, has been remarkably restrained for years. The left not so much.

At any rate I am glad I am not in a planning and operations section in any government agency. They should be already deep in the planning of a response.

Republicans are going to the table with their newfound appetite

Yep, the republicans are going to the democrat gun control table with their newfound appetite for passing gun control laws. It seems odd that the republicans never ask the democrats to come to the liberty table to talk. Ever ask yourself, why? Perhaps the republicans have no appetite for liberty.

Think about it with this. Since the 2010 midterm elections the republicans were claiming to want to repeal the ACA. The electorate put the House in republican hands. They made it appear that the Senate stood in their way. The 2012 general elections came around and the electorate put the Senate in republican hands, they again made it appear that they were still trying to repeal the ACA. The White House stood in their way. the 2016 elections came around and lo and behold the electorate put the White House in republican hands. The objective suddenly changed, it now became “repeal and replace”. They could not even get that done, not enough of their own would back the republican plan. The plan I guess at that time was to repeal the democrat plan and put in place a republican plan. Either way health care would have remained under government control. The way I see it the republicans never had any intention of repealing the ACA.

Now the republicans are going to sit down at the gun control table of the democrats. The democrats will bring with them a list of demands and the republicans will bring with them a list of concessions they are willing to make in the name of cooperation and acting in a bipartisan fashion. The democrats call it negotiating, what it is, is one party making demands and the other party making concessions(appeasement). I seem to remember that was done in history with tragic results. It boiled down to one party surrendering to another party what was not his to surrender.

So what are some of the demands the democrats will be bringing to the table?
1. Bans of a certain class of firearms, reinstituting the assault weapons ban. Making it permanent this time.
2. Bans on “high capacity” magazines. No one has yet come up with the definition of a “high capacity” magazine they will come up with an arbitrary number, probably 10 rounds more or less.
3. Bans on certain types of ammunition.
4. Universal background checks. A background check required for all firearm sales, even between private citizens.
5. A national firearms registry. Registering every firearm in the country.
6. A firearms license to purchase or own firearms.
7. Some type of insurance for firearms owners.
8. A national red flag law.
9. raising the minimum age to buy a firearm to 21.
10. A gun buy back scheme.
I am sure that this is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the list demands that the democrats will bring to the table.

So what are some of the concessions the republicans will bring to the table?
1. Background checks, this is a given as was said “we will have meaningful background checks”.
2. A national red flag law.
This too, most likely, is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to republican concessions as “one in the know” said, “other things are possible as long as it does not alienate too many republicans”. By that I suppose he was considering the republican senators, I do not think he was giving any consideration as to how many republican voters were alienated.

Just what is fueling this newfound republican appetite for gun control legislation?

Could it be the never ending polls? It could be, but if anyone has reason to doubt the accuracy of polls it should be the republicans. If the polls would have been accurate in 2016 HRC would be president.

It could be the State of Florida and what happened here after the shooting in Parkland. In the aftermath of Parkland the Legislature and the Governor felt that they had to do something. The legislature and the Governorship of Florida were firmly in republican hands. The legislature passed gun control legislation instituting a red flag law, raising the minimum age to buy firearms to 21 among other things. The Governor signed that legislation into law. Then came the elections of 2018. The State Legislature is still in republican hands, A republican was elected Governor. The same Governor who signed the gun control legislation into law won his election to become a US Senator, defeating an incumbent democrat. Florida was once known as a gun friendly state with the republicans in control of the state government, now Florida is known as a gun control state with republicans in control of the state government. It would appear to some that Florida took on a gun control stance and the republicans who drafted and enacted the gun control legislation did not suffer the wrath of the voters. One thing I would like to point out is that those republican victories for the Governor and US Senator came with a razor thin margin.

Then it could be that the republicans have always had an appetite for gun control. Two things probably stopped them from moving forward.
First. The wrath of the voters. They now because of the events in Florida think that it could be possible to push forward on gun control and not suffer politically.
Second. They could rely on campaign contributions and political support from gun rights groups. Now the larger of the groups is having a “bit of trouble”, the money might not flow in their direction. However there are a lot of gun control groups with a lot of money that will send political contributions to anti-gun candidates and politicians.

The democrats are right now along with some republicans planning the “menu” for the table. The table is set for September. That leaves only two questions.

How big is the republican appetite?

Who is going to pick up the check?

Sacred cows of the left

It would appear that the left has more concern for their “sacred cows” than for this Republic. The left’s sacred cows are based on opinion rather than fact.

I may as well dispense with this now. The left will claim that the right has a sacred cow as well, the Second Amendment. The Second Amendment is based on fact not opinion, that fact is spelled out in the Constitution.

There is one more thing to dispense with. Opinions change, Facts do not. It is a fact that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the rising and setting of the sun is based on fact not opinion.

Speaking of opinions. I for one am just about tired of opinion polls, sick and tired of hearing what percentage of Americans support or believe in whatever. Opinions change based on new information or when hidden facts come to light. Pollsters are paid, their polls are skewered to get the answer desired. If you ask 100 gun haters about guns you will get a typical gun hater response. Polls are also wrong, every poll taken with the exception of one had HRC handily winning the last presidential election.

When I hear talking-heads on the right spouting the results of the latest poll I just shake my head. When I hear a leftist talking-head spouting the results of the latest poll, well that is to be expected. Both of them, left and right, only spout the poll numbers that further promotes what they are trying to “sell”.

It is sad indeed that this Republic appears to no longer lives under “the Rule of Law” and lives under the “Rule of Opinion”.

The left is in a tizzy over the newest Supreme Court nominee, some of their present “sacred cows” may be dispensed with and some of their future “sacred cows” may never come to light. So let us examine some of those “sacred cows”, and while I am at that I will point out the dangers of being governed(ruled)by opinion.

Abortion. Abortion(the legalized murder of children in the womb)comes to this Republic courtesy of the opinion of the majority of 9 Supreme Court Justices. The left is scared that the newest nominee mat take this “sacred cow” to slaughter rather than continuing to slaughter(legalized murder)children in the womb.

Congress passed no law legalizing the murder of children in the womb and certainly no president signed it into law. It is very doubtful that legalized murder would have ever became law if not for opinion.

I find it a little more than ironic that those who support abortion and perform abortions were themselves in fact born. They art the product of live birth, but in true leftist fashion they seek to deny or provide an avenue for the denial of others what they themselves have, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

The left uses the equal protections clause when it suits their needs or agenda. They claim that it is the woman’s body and therefore her choice, but the unborn has no choice. The unborn is in essence deprived of life and liberty without due process of Law.

Same-sex marriage. Same-sex marriage comes to us courtesy of the opinion of the majority of the Supreme Court Justices.

Congress passed no law legalizing same-sex marriage and again no president signed it into law. There is no address of marriage in the entire Constitution, yet same-sex marriage is now a constitutional right. The left used the equal protections clause.

The only historical document that addresses marriage is the Holy Bible, described by God as being between a man and a woman.

Those that profess to support same-sex marriages are the product of marriage as described by God.

I could go on with examples of opinion trumping law but you get the picture.

As said above the left is in a tizzy over the Supreme Court nominee over the way he may vote on issues that effect their “sacred cows”. The fact is no one knows exactly how he will render his opinion. The left can not take that risk, they want a Justice who will hold the same opinion as the leftists and render his opinions as a leftist. They fear a Constitutionalist.

The coming mid-terms

This seems to be one of the three or four things on the minds of most folks these days. I will get to the others later. November aint that far off some primaries have already been held with more upcoming.

Democrat talking heads are predicting a “blue wave”, while Republican talking heads are predicting a “red wave”. Must be political football season again, the blue and red teams are about to take to the field. According to the experts(ex-spurts)the home team(the party in control)generally suffers the most defeats in the mid-terms, referred to as the “mid-term curse”(more on this in a minute).

A few of the democrat “clowns” still want to impeach the President. For what I don’t know. I did not think that hating the sitting president was an impeachable offense. Their leadership wants them to knock off such talk as it might create a windfall for the republicans, as in guarantee a republican(red wave)victory. Basically the democrats have nothing to offer other than the same old same old.

It seems that some of the republicans are trying to throw(lose)the upcoming elections. The republicans hold the majority in the House as well as the Senate, even got the White House. But I do have to wonder what the republicans are up to. Why are they(some of them)doing the work of the minority party. It looks to me that some in the republican party are trying to intentionally lose(throw)the mid-terms with this push to force a discharge petition on amnesty. Now there may be some sort of genius behind this move but I doubt it. I think this is a move to piss of the voters so they sit this one out, ensuring a “blue wave”.

There are many in the republican establishment that still are never Trump(NT), and or anybody but Trump(ABT)and they want him gone(out of office). The question is, How far are they willing to achieve this goal? It was reported that 18 and possibly 19 republican representatives have signed onto this discharge petition. I have to wonder if there might be someone behind the scenes pulling the strings, perhaps a big money donor calling in his or her marker.

Back to the so-called experts. The pollsters(I believe all but one)had HRC handily winning the 2016 presidential election. Well they were wrong. Trump won the election much to the consternation of the experts. They thought the “fix” was in, there gal would win. Now we have the Russian collusion investigation going on entering the second year. There would have been no such investigation had HRC won. Why? I suppose they figured there was no way Trump could become president and if he did it would be because of some outside help or interference. They just could not accept that their candidate was flawed, horribly so.

From the moment President Trump announced he was in the run the establishment was against him(I believe they still are). How many times did they try to get him to drop out? He hung in. I believe there was a secret strategy meeting(most likely more)to find a way to do something about Trump. Not going to rehash that whole fiasco, you get the point.

The night of the election and Trump won it looked like the democrats, liberals, leftists, socialists, progressives(repeated myself)and the establishment were going to lose their minds. Some democrat clowns in congress were looking for reasons to impeach even before President Trump was inaugurated. Before the election how many of the left said Trump would never be president? It was if they had a crystal ball or something(insurance policy).

Now let us go back to these 18 and why they are doing, or attempting to do, the bidding of the left. It takes a lot of money to run for political(Constitutional)office a lot of donors and I do not mean the ones who contribute 20 or so dollars. I am talking about the big money supporters. There is no one who will invest that much financial support and not expect something in return. I have to wonder about these 18 and their motivation. Are they just looking for that last vote? That which they now attempt, is it what they believe to be right? It was not what they campaigned on, did they “evolve”? Are they just repaying donations? When it comes to political campaigns many millions are spent to make hundreds of thousands. Many holding Constitutional office are millionaires or multi-millionaires yet when it come re-election time they hold out their hands begging for contributions, they seem unwilling to risk their own personal fortunes. They end up owing somebody something. President Trump was the exception.

This coming November will be two years since the political establishment was shocked by the win of a “political nobody”. President Trump is still president despite the attempts by some in both parties to force him out or kick him out. In their attacks against the president they have been attacking those who voted him into office. They have been dragging this Republic through the mud for far too long. The investigation by the Special Counsel is entering its second year and the president has come through unscathed. Look at some of the actions to protect that investigation, some republicans have tried to introduce legislation to protect the Special Counsel from being fired by the President. If I am correct it is republican leadership that has stopped this legislation saying it is unnecessary. I believe that they have a different reason, even if the legislation is passed the president would have to either sign it into law or veto it. If he signed it into law then that would in effect be saying he has nothing to fear(no collusion), and they know it. I doubt that the president would veto this.

There were rumors that the investigation would take a break due to the upcoming elections. I believe that says more than just that, the investigation may be hinged to the mid-terms. If the republicans hold both the House and the Senate the investigation may just wrap up with no further findings. If the republicans lose the House but retain the Senate it may continue for a while or come to an end. It will definitely continue if the democrats take both the House and the Senate. One of the first orders for business for the democrats if they take both the House and the Senate will be to impeach the president. They may bring the president up on impeachment charges if they only win the House, if for no other reason that to please(quieten down) some of the noisier democrats.

So are the republicans intentionally trying to lose(throw)the upcoming elections? I will let you draw your own conclusions, I have my own. I point out that around four dozen republicans(House and Senate)are calling it quits. Some are facing a tough re-election(wonder why)or maybe they feel that they may just lose the primaries(remembering what happened in Virginia). These 18 appear to be trying to put the icing on the lose cake.

The republican establishment, including the big money supporters are still pretty well ticked off at us lowly voters for putting A President Donald Trump in the White House, instead of electing one out of their preferred stables. They may just still be ticked enough to throw the elections and subject us to the democrats for a while, you know just to teach us a lesson for departing the reservation.

Since when….?

This is the first part of a series.

Since when did doing the right thing become based on diminished public interest? What I am referring to here is reports of the current AG saying that he would not pursue based on diminished public interest referring to the Clinton e-mails and all that was associated with them. It is not just the e-mails but all of the wrongdoing in the previous administration.

While it may be true that public interest has diminished somewhat. It does not mean that the public is no longer interested in the matters the AG made reference to. Nor does it mean the level of frustration has lessened at the apparent incompetence with the AG and the DOJ, in this administration or the last. What the diminished public interest means is that people have passed away patiently waiting for someone to come along who would do the right thing and pursue the corrupt in government even if it went or goes all the way to the top. Not just pursue but prosecute.

It would appear that the current AG has taken a new view of polling, public opinion is based on polling. It seems that he believes the results of polling. If the majority says on thing then it must be true. The poll must be right. I remind him of the polls just last year that had HRC up by several points and in some cases by double digits. If the polling data was correct up until last November’s election HRC would be sitting in the White House and his ass would still be sitting in the Senate.

Doing the right thing should be a matter of conscience not at matter of public interest(polling), whether it has diminished or not. Right is right and wrong is wrong.

It seems that your reluctance to pursue these matters indicates that there is something to hide. We as citizens of this Republic have a right to know the truth about those in our government. You, Sir have an obligation to the citizens of this Republic.

Now is the time to embark on a Great Crusade, a crusade for truth.

Falling apart at the seams

The political establishment may have at last met its match. At long last we may see the party of Lincoln on the ash heaps of history along with the Federalist, Whig and Free Soil parties. At current there are two republican Senators who will not seek re-election, hopefully many more will join them. One of them cites something akin to party disloyalty, disloyalty by the president, as his reason for not seeking re-election. I say good riddance and dont let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya on the way out and please take as many of your kind as possible with you. I doubt that the democrats will ever field a candidate that would turn the democrat party on its ear as President Trump has done with the republican party. More on the democrats later.

President Trump has done more to expose the corruption in D.C. than any president in recent history. President Trump has not hijacked the republican party, he has however exposed the party for what it is. The republican party is now what it has always been, the party of big, big government. They believe that for every problem there is a government solution, when in fact most problems are the fault of government interference and intervention.

In order not to paint with too broad of a brush, let me say this. There are people serving in Congress in both parties that want to do the right thing. There are two things stopping them, first are the establishment politicians and second is the political party machine. The problem is that those wanting to do the right thing are few and far between, scarce as hen’s teeth.

Let me take a side road for jest a minute. There are many that call themselves Constitutional Conservatives while at the same time saying how much they admire Abraham Lincoln. They talk out both sides of their mouths. No one can be a Constitutional Conservative and an admirer of Lincoln, impossible I say. Lincoln did more to destroy the Constitution and this Republic than any other President. He took it upon himself to appoint himself Caesar of America. Read your history and research this for yourselves, you may just be surprised at what you find out about Mr. Lincoln.

Let me continue on this side road. More Presidents than not have done their level best to find a way to get around the Constitution. Most have been very successful at circumventing the Constitution. Some have weaponized the government, using government agents against their political opponents. Some have used the government to reward their supporters. Some have done both. Just following in the foot steps of Lincoln. The damage they have done may be unrepairable at this late date.

Now to the democrats. It seems that the democrats will risk losing an election or two even three just to get what they want. The best and most recent example of this would be Obamacare. The democrats took a gamble, a gamble that has paid off and will continue. Let me explain.

When the democrats had control of the entire government, the House, the Senate and the Presidency. They introduced, passed and signed into law the ACA(aka Obamacare)the was no republican input or votes in support of the ACA. It was purely a democrat law. If it worked it would have been a huge victory for the democrats. But the ACA was not designed to work, it was intended to fail. This is best shown by the statement of the former democrat Speaker of the House, when she famously said, “You have to pass it to find what is in it”. Since most if not all of the democrats voted to pass the ill-fated law never read it, they did not care what was in it. Then it started, the republicans stating how bad it was. But how did they know it was so bad? It would seem that no one read the thing. The republicans began their campaign to repeal the ACA. The democrats had the republicans just where they wanted them and their gamble began to pay off.

The republicans gained control of the House, but the democrats still controlled the Senate and the Presidency. The republicans began their attempts at repealing the ACA. They knew it would go nowhere, it would never be passed in the Senate. Little more than political grandstanding. Next the republicans took control of the Senate. Legislation finally would reach the President. They full well knew two things. First they knew the president was never going to sign any legislation that repealed the ACA, the democrats still controlled the presidency. Second they knew that they could not find enough votes to override a presidential veto. More political grandstanding.

The republicans either fell into a carefully crafted trap or painted themselves into a corner. There is a third possibility that I will get into later. The republicans from 2010 ran on a campaign promise to repeal the ACA. Then the term repeal and replace was bandied about. Well they have been unable to do either. They cant even find enough support in their own ranks to even get legislation moving forward. The republicans control the House, the Senate and have the Presidency. Which brings us to the third possibility. The republicans only said what would get them elected, there never was a real intention to do away with the ACA. Now we have a bi-partisan effort to save the ACA. So the republicans were lying all the time. Oh, color me shocked. The reason that the ACA is still with us is because the party that crafted it and the party that supposedly opposed it are both big government political parties. At some point the ACA will morph into a single payer system at which time the government will have complete and total control over the entire health care system. I believe it is or will be called Medicare for all. One thing for sure we will never be subjected to the lie about repealing the ACA again.

Now lets visit Tax Reform. It looks like some will get a tax break, a lower percentage paid into the government. But hold on, the republicans are proposing a plan that lets individuals put less into their 401k. A 401k lets a person build up a personal retirement account, tax deferred. Meaning the government only gets their cut when withdrawals are made. The republicans want to lower that amount. Meaning two things, first people will put less into their 401k(having less when they retire, if they can), second they will be having more taxable income(more revenue for the government). The tax cuts are only an illusion. The government gets their cut sooner. Even with a lower rate the people will see their taxable income going up, and on the same pay. Go figure.

Lets go back to the democrats for just a bit. When the democrats are the majority they seem to be able to any thing they want, the republicans being the minority seem to be unable to stop them. When the republicans are the majority the democrats seem to be able to stymie them at will. It leaves one to wonder if the democrats are the perpetual majority no matter which party is the majority. So much for a two-party political system. The democrats took a gamble to pass the ACA, the republicans are unwilling to take a gamble on repealing the ACA. The republicans may just find themselves in the minority again, and possibly forever.

I said the democrats were willing to take a gamble, I did not say they were stupid. Though the speeches and remarks by some democrat congressional members would indicate otherwise. Back in 2010 the democrats had the “whole ball of wax”, the House, the Senate and the Presidency yet they made no attempt at gun control. They could have had their way in the arena of personal firearms and the republicans would have been powerless to stop them. Yet they did nothing even though they are anti-gun zealots. Funny thing about this is the fact that no gun control group has yet to chastise them for taking no meaningful action when it comes to guns. No going at that alone as a political party would be tantamount to political party suicide. Gun control is the only area that the democrats have any interest in bi-partisanship, they are willing to take some of the blame for that one but not all of it. The way the republicans cave it will not be long before they join the democrats on gun control.

Now let’s go on to debts, deficits and budgets. The Republicans have proposed a 4 trillion-dollar budget, but there is no indication as to where that money will appear from. Perhaps a money pit or a printing press. We have been told for so long that there exists a national debt, hell I have even repeated that. I have read that the amount is close to if not exceeding 20 trillion. Now I am beginning to wonder if there is a national debt. It seems that the government can always find money somehow somewhere. We basically have no idea how much money the Treasury has, time to time has not shown up yet. We have no idea how much money is spent, or what the money was spent on. Patrick henry was right about the definition of time to time. There is no audit and no accountability when it comes to the Treasury or the Federal Reserve and any efforts to do so are stymied. The national debt may be non-existent, but rumors of its existence serves as an effective scare tactic. Each political party blames the other for the national debt, but both parties spend money like drunken sailors(not meant to disparage drunken sailors). We are told that a national debt exists and we are also told how much each of us or household is responsible for. I have borrowed nothing I am responsible for zero dollars. The taxes that I pay should be sufficient to cover my share of the costs to fund the government, for the things the government is supposed to do according to the Constitution. The only way I could possibly owe more would be if the government is operating outside of the Constitution.

Back to the republican Senators not seeking re-election. You obviously dont have the guts to follow through on your obligations. You will be departing with your “war chest” stacked full of cash, not to mention the millions you have acquired and a nice fat pension. You are set for life while those of us who counted on you to be honorable are left down here just getting by. Don’t worry yourself too much over our fate, we will get by not because of what you have done but in spite of what you have done.

One last point. For those complaining about the slow progress in draining the swamp consider this. If you drain the swamp to fast you may just find yourself up to your ass in alligators.

Who or What is next?

Now we have this from the Liberal Left Socialist Progressives(LLSP). It now appears that there are offensive monuments in the Halls of Congress. We know this because some “esteemed and enlightened” politicians(clowns)have said so. These clowns have wandered these same halls for years, however it would seem that they have just now at this very minute seen them, though most of these statues have stood there silently for years bothering no one. These same “esteemed and enlighten” clowns want to introduce legislation to have them removed from Capitol Hill.

So you have to ask yourself why must or did they announce to the world that these offensive things exist, offensive to them but only recently. The answer to that is simple, and here is why. American politics revolves around opinion polls, yes it is the pollsters and those who hire them that set and control the political agenda. Likewise the American foreign policy has for years been shaped by “World Opinion”. They are just checking to see which way the wind blows.

There is a reason why the legislation to remove the “offensive” statues from the Statutory was announced. If the legislation stalls in committee, the LLSP esteemed and enlightened clowns will go to their allies in the media and decry the obstructionists to this legislation as racists, neo-Nazis, or what ever term will give them the most “traction”. The same will happen if the Congress does not pass the legislation. Any opposition to the legislation will be met with the same vicious attacks, the legislation will most likely pass with little or no opposition. Worse will happen if the legislation becomes a bill and is sent to President Trump and he refuses to sign the bill into law. If the bill passes with little or no opposition and the president vetoes the bill his veto will be overridden. Damned if you do Damned if you dont. The LLSP will then claim that our Constitution works, the same Constitution they have worked so hard to destroy and so despise when it stands in their way.

There was also a reason the announcement of the existence of these statues was announced. The vast majority of Americans have never visited Washington D.C. Consequently the existence of these statues was until unknown. Those who knew of their existence were not offended. No one demanded their removal, until these clown sprang into action. With this announcement there has been an invitation to visit the Capitol, not to see the beauty but to look for things that offend.

Stacking the Deck. This is exactly what the LLSP have done with these announcements, they announced the presence of these statues, they also announced their intention to introduce legislation to have them removed. These esteemed and enlightened clowns know that the legislative process in Congress is slow to the point of being excruciatingly slow, they have been a part of the process for years and in some cases decades. They intend to speed up the process, but only in this instance. By making these announcements these esteemed and enlightened clowns have effectively and intentionally invited protests, more protests to D.C. Even without legislation the protests and the ensuing violence will cause outcry. You will get what you want. You intend to make it swift.

Playing both ends against the middle, a favorite tactic of the LLSP. They know by these announcements there will be protesters coming to D.C. There will be those who are opposed to the removal/destruction or the statues for whatever position they hold. There will be those for the removal/destruction of the statues again for whatever position they hold. These will be the only protestors, they come in peace to voice their opinions under the First Amendment, Free Speech. They want to make speeches and carry their signs and posters, Protesters not Rioters. These clowns know full well that the extremes will show up, left and right, they are counting on them. They are also counting on violence, without violence they will not have a victim. They will undoubtedly infiltrate the protesters, whether paid or just to cause trouble. The extremes never come in peace, they bring death and destruction, they provide what you need. The LLSP will blame only the ones who protest the removal.

The Ends Justify the Means. The LLSP and their allies in the media have an agenda to fulfil and will see it through not matter what the cost. They do not and never have considered the cost of their schemes. Their agenda has got to be to destroy America. To destroy America they must finish off the South. Four years of war did not get it done, reconstruction still did not get it done. The South and the Southern culture still exists, and it and has been a thorn in the side of the LLSP, the media and the elitists.

There was country song years back that had the lyrics; You cant stomp us out and you cant make us run. The LLSP know full well that one can only be pushed so far. Maybe a poem will help.

THE WRATH OF THE AWAKENED SAXON
by Rudyard Kipling

It was not part of their blood
It came to them very late
With long arrears to make good
When the Saxon began to hate

They were not easily moved
They were icy–willing to wait
Till every count should be proved
Ere the Saxon began to hate

Their voices were even and low
Their eyes were level and straight
There was neither sign nor show
When the Saxon began to hate

It was not preached to the crowd
It was not taught by the state
No man spoke it aloud
When the Saxon began to hate

It was not suddently bred
It will not swiftly abate
Through the chilled years ahead
When Time shall count from the date
That the Saxon began to hate

All of this leaves one to wonder just what it is that the LLSP wants. Are they pushing for a Civil War? A War pitting political factions against one another? A War pitting the regions of America against one another? Or are they pushing for Martial Law? What you need now is the same as you have always needed, you need a triggering event. The triggering event you so desperately need and seek has yet to appear. You now seek to cause one, using your allies in the media and violent factions. Be careful what you wish for.

There is perhaps one aspect to all of this hatred of all things Southern and Confederate, not to mention the jealousy of the South, that the LSSP and their allies may have overlooked. The monster you create today will come for you tomorrow. If you manage to finish us off by whatever you have in mind there will be no one to save you from the monster you created. You believe you have insulated yourselves, news for you there will never be enough insulation. Your creation(monster)will destroy you, unless you destroy it. How will you destroy them?

What was right in 1776 was right in 1861 and is right today.

Taking Turns

It would appear that the politicians both democrats and republicans are taking and have been taking turns stabbing the middle-class in the back. Both political parties are filled to over-flowing with big-government politicians, Whigs and Socialists. On one hand we have the democrats(Socialists)taking this Republic down the path to socialism, on the other we have the republicans(Whigs)taking us down the same path. If they get their way this republic will be inhabited by the same classes as Venezuela, the poor and the wealthy. The middle class will be eliminated here just the same as there. Of the two the democrats seem to be in the biggest hurry, the republicans seem to be a bit more patient.

There is another thing about the democrats, they are willing to risk losing elections on the way to Socialism. The democrats knew full-well that Obamacare would at some point implode, fail if you will. Still they did not care and moved ahead full-speed. They also knew that by passing Obamacare they would lose elections, the voters would take out their anger at the polls. Losing elections did not bother them. They lost control of the House shortly after passing Obamacare, retaining the Senate and the Presidency. Later they lost control of the Senate but retained the Presidency. For democrats losing was winning.

Now the republicans control the House, the Senate and the Presidency. Six months in and Obamacare is still with us. The republicans can not get rid of Obamacare, nor do they really want to. The democrats are coming to the rescue, they seek a bi-partisan effort to fix Obamacare. They knew it would fail. They sought no republican input is “crafting” that piece of legislation, yet they are willing to help the republicans to “fix” Obamacare. The thing about republicans is that they are not willing to lose elections on their march towards Socialism.

There is no way that we can ever go back to the way it was, or the way it is supposed to be. Big government politicians will see to that. Healthcare is just another thing under federal government control, one of many. Government has control and will never give that up. Power and control.

What will the republicans run on next year? Can or will they run on their record? Will they say they just needed more time? Maybe they will say the time to repeal Obamacare was lost, it has been with us to long? Will they say that too much time was lost investigating “Russian collusion”? The republicans have total control at this time, they could repeal Obamacare. If only they had the Nerve, had a Brain and had a Heart. They would never do that they might lose the next election.

What will the democrats run on next year? Will they run on saving Obamacare?

The democrats stabbed us in the back by passing Obamacare.

The republicans stabbed us in the back by failing once again to full-fill campaign promises. Which goes to prove that a politician will say anything to get elected or re-elected.

The democrats will in all likelihood use their time-tested tactics, the republicans will aid them(wittingly or unwittingly). The republicans will fail to repeal Obamacare. Obamacare will fail(implode), after all it was designed to do just that. The democrats will say that they were voted out before they could perfect Obamacare, what they had accomplished was only a first step. A first step that did not go far enough. The republicans had years to fix Obamacare, they could have helped us fix the flaws. The republicans knew the flaws, they repeated/regurgitated them often enough. The republicans refused to help fix it and now it has failed. The republicans did nothing, it failed and its failure is their fault. Now it is too late to fix it, we must take the next step. The next logical step in the minds of big government politicians is single payer health care. They will find a way to blame Obamacare on the republicans. They will even blame single payer on the republicans, had the republicans acted in time we would not be at this point. Even though single payer was their goal all along. The republicans in Congress will face and feel the wrath of the voters, the republicans will find themselves in the political wilderness.

There is another thing about socialism, there is only one political party. The republicans fear that the democrats will be in control when the change occurs. The republicans who stand up against the democrats of today will have no political future tomorrow. The republicans who side with the democrats today may have a political future tomorrow.

Oh Goody, I got another one

Yep, got yet another RNC survey in the mail entitled; Trump Agenda Survey along with a three page accompanying letter. This one too is from the RNC Chairwoman. Three times on page three of the letter the RNC is begging for money, the dollar amounts go from $25 up to $1,000 or what ever I can spare within the next 7 business days. These people are really testing the limits of my good manners. The letter once again proves that the RNC has no vision. They picked the wrong one to offer them advice as I am right next to telling them exactly what they can do to themselves.

Let’s go through this thought-provoking survey. First I might note that there is a notice at the top of the survey which reads: NOTICE: This DOCUMENT IS REGISTERED to the individual named below and must be accounted for during tabulation. If you choose not to represent your District in this official Trump Agenda Survey, sign and return this Document using the pre-addressed envelope provided.

A little further down the front page is another statement all capital letters in red: OFFICIAL REPUBLICAN PARTY DOCUMENT- DO NOT DESTROY

Then instructions as how to mark the block that corresponds with the answer, return in 7 business days. A total of 12 questions and the and possible answers. Question 1 has only yes or no for the possible responses. Question 2 has ten items to be marked from 1 through 10 with 1 being the most important. Questions 3 through 11 have Yes, No and No Opinion for possible responses, there is however no room to explain the answer selected.

For instance question #3. Are you in favor of major federal investment in rebuilding the country’s infrastructure of roads, highways bridges, and airports? The options are Yes, No and No Opinion. If I were to answer this question my answer would be, No. My answer would indicate to some that I do not care about the sorry state of the infrastructure. While I do care, it is not right for us here in Florida to pay for improvements in say, New York, nor would it be right for another state to pay for improvements here in Florida. When ever they say federal investment they mean money that came from the States. You can bet that the states with the fewest Electoral College votes would come dead last if the federal government gets involved in financing infrastructure improvements.

Question #9 is worded all wrong. Do you believe that Democrats in Congress have any intention of working in good faith with President Trump and Republicans to address the pressing issues facing our nation? There is really no a way to answer that question as worded.
If the question was worded; Do you believe that Democrats and Republicans in Congress have any intention of working in good faith with President Trump to address the pressing issues facing our Republic? Boy, I could answer that question. The answer would be not only NO but Hell NO! No I couldn’t say that Hell No is not an option. I guess NO would have to do. I would need lots of room to say why, even though there is really no explanation needed.

Question #11 is hilarious. Do you believe that the so-called “Mainstream Media” will give President Trump fair, unbiased coverage of his policy proposals and leadership? Are you kidding me, you really felt you had to ask this question?

Then of course there is question #12. The one that begs for money. The possible answers are:
Yes! You can count on me with a pledge to support the RNC with a contribution from $25 all the way up to Other.
No, I cannot make a commitment today, but I support our President and his Agenda. I am returning my survey document with a contribution of $15 to cover processing.
No, I do not support President Trump and Republicans in Congress.

Well Madam, you will not be getting this survey back, nor will you be getting one red cent. The exact same as last time.

Fresh out of options

The same opening in the last post applies to this post. This is not an attempt by me to delve into the world of conspiracy theories, there are others who do that, I will leave that to them. This post like the last is intended to cause people to think. And as in the last post LLSP applies to the democrats and those hiding in the GOP.

The Electoral College vote yesterday made it official, Donald J. Trump will be inaugurated as the 45th President of the United States on January 20th 2017 at noon. One would think that it is finally settled and finally over. The LLSP have failed in every attempt to prevent yesterday from happening. They failed in their attempt to defeat Mr. trump in the primaries. They failed again at the GOP convention. They failed to defeat Mr. Trump in the presidential election. They failed again with the ridiculous re-count efforts. And finally they failed at the Electoral College. Save for a few “turncoats” it worked just as the Founders and Framers intended.

One would think that the LLSP were fresh out of options. That may not be the case. This is not the time for us, the sensible, in America to think that this is over. We must stay on our guard. History is a great teacher, we only have to look back. There are many historical facts that illustrate the point I am trying to make.

For the purposes of this post I would like to use Western Europe during World War 2. Hitler, the Nazis and the German military had control of most if not all of Europe by the spring of 1944. Europe was an occupied land. The German High Command had always known that there would one day be an invasion of Europe in an attempt to liberate the conquered nations. This I feel was one of the compelling reasons Hitler wanted to conquer the British Isles. Think about this for a moment. If the British Isles had fallen to the Germans, they could not have been used as the “jumping off point” for the D-Day invasion. Where would a suitable “jumping off point” be other than the British Isles? The British Isles did not fall and became the “jumping off point” for D-Day. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Think of the U. S. as an occupied land for a moment. A land occupied not by a foreign military, but by the political ruling class(LLSP), their henchmen and handlers. They too, have always known that there was the possibility of a liberation of this land. An invasion of Patriots, so to speak.

With the failure of the German military to subdue the British Isles, the Germans began building “Fortress Europe”. The coast line of Western Europe was bristling with guns from Spain to Norway, guns to repel the invasion. The German High Command also was faced with the problem of trying to best guess where an invasion would occur, and place the reserve forces nearest that point. The points they chose was Calais and Cherbourg.

The LSSP, their henchmen and handlers need not plan to repel an invasion from the sea, the Patriots were and are already ashore. They did not have to build a “Fortress America” they only had to divide America and Her Citizens into segments. The LLSP have only basic tactics they employ, Division and Character Assassination. Once a population is divided it is easy to assassinate their character. The LSSP have been dividing the population for years. They divide the population based on skin color, sex, money or the lack of it, religion or the lack of it, ethnicity and so on. Then they pit one group against another or the others which ever works best for them. Then the name-calling begins racist, sexist, homophobe and so on. If anyone still stands his or her ground their character is assassinated with even more name-calling and even allegations of bad behavior, even is those allegations have no merit. They have divided America the same way they have divided the population. America is divided into colors Red, Blue and Purple. The states fight the other states and the federal government fights the states.

The Allied invasion of Europe occurred on June 6th 1944 at Normandy. The German High Command could not believe what they were seeing. They even went into denial. The invasion happening before their eyes was occurring at the wrong time and in the wrong place. Many thought that the invasion was only a trick(deception), not real, and the real invasion would occur where and when they thought it always would. It was the only way. They never saw it coming, even though it was right before their eyes.

The LLSP find themselves in the same predicament. As stated above, the LLSP and their henchmen and handlers have long suspected that the Patriots would rise up and take back this Republic. They had always believed that the Patriots would rise up with Arms in an attempt to throw-off the government, much the same as the Founders and Framers had done so long ago. They guessed wrong, the Patriots did rise up and begin the process of taking back the Republic, but it was done with the ballot box not with the cartridge box. They never saw it coming, we used what the Founders and Framers had left for us. They had been long trying to disarm the population, through laws, rules and regulations and yes even trickery. Falling short of their goal of disarming the population, they resorted to building “Fortress Government” to counter the Patriots. Let’s not forget the massive amount of weapons and ammunition the federal government had been acquiring and stockpiling. Bristling with guns. Does that sound familiar? Failing in one goal and then building a Fortress. A Fortress to stave off what you fear most. Now the LLSP their henchmen and handlers have another problem. The “Fortress Government” that they built is about to fall into the hands of those it was to be used against, if the need arose. Divine intervention? Maybe.

Let’s not forget what happens when you think you have won when the enemy is still quite capable of fighting. Not just fighting but launching an offensive. The Battle of the Bulge as it is known started in mid-December 1944 and lasted till mid-January 1945.

The election of Donald J. Trump as 45th President of the U.S. was just the first step, much like the landing at Normandy. There is still a long way to go to achieve final victory. The LLSP for now appears beaten, but we must be wary. There is still time for them to do what they do best, muck everything up. The next “hurdle” is January 20th, it is akin to breaking out of Normandy and going “inland”. From Neptune to Overlord.
