Do not open that door!!!

What a fascinating time in the world.

Sometimes it feels as though I am watching a horror flick where the music becomes darker and the actor starts to turn a handle on a door that you know they shouldn’t be opening.  Some people will scream at the TV, “NO! Do not open that door!”, while others squirm on the couch thinking the same thing.

Of course they open it and out comes Pandora, box and all.

Or Freddy Krueger, take your pick.

Why do we keep opening the same door?

“Hillary Clinton once proclaimed”…that’s all you should need….

Don’t open the door.

“Bill Clinton”…again all you should need…..

Leave the door shut.

Barack….

Are you with me now?

The one thing all of these people and politicians in general have proven is they don’t care about freedom, America, you, or me.

There are things we know and things we don’t know.

We know this.  They don’t care about our plight, our lives, really anything about us.  These types of people are like a Hoover vacuum (not fair to Hoover).  They will suck up everything they can to fulfill the void in their lives.

Money, resources, the truth, even human lives do not matter to these people.

Yet we continue to “open the door”.

Or do we?

Some democratic voters (not enough) currently abhor Hillary Clinton.  They proved this last time when they went with a guy whose middle name was “Hussein”.

I think we should start pronouncing it “Insane”.

For sake of clarity.

It’s only “fair” to keep things “balanced”.

Hussein as in Saddam was a Sunni.

“Insane” as in Obama prefers Shiite and I do believe would appreciate the adherence to his strict dogma not be confused.  Never fear BO…you are in good hands.

From this day further I bequeath onto Barry, Barack…it’s all so confusing…his official name and title:

Barack Insane Obama.

I think it has a nice ring.

But then again who is the insane party here?

A man who lies, lies to cover lies, then lies some more because those lies seem to work…or the people who continue to go along with the lies when they know none of it is true.

We the American people have bestowed our trust, not once but twice, into a man who struggles to keep up with current events, unless they can be found on television, but always has his NCAA bracket turned in on time.  Never mind the fact he thought it important to explain to us what his son would look like…if he had one.

Before this we placed our belief, twice, in a man who announced to the world that the Mission was Accomplished and then left our best and bravest behind in the hands of…Barack Insane Obama who repeatedly told anyone who would listen exactly what he was going to do in that region of the world…before he was elected.

Finally before all of this we placed our country, twice, in the hands of a man who was confounded by the word “is”, proclaimed “oral sex” wasn’t “sex” (wouldn’t this be the same as green apples aren’t apples?) and stated he smoked pot but didn’t “inhale”.  Now I am certainly not an “expert” on marijuana but if you don’t “inhale” what is the point?

Of course when you struggle with “is” I guess anything is possible…and boy howdy “is” it!

We are now in 2015 and the wife of the man who defined “oral sex” as not being “sex” (while “not” having sex with “that woman”) wants to be President.

Don’t laugh.  Millions of Americans “is” willing to vote for her.

I have no doubt they are inhaling.

But wait there’s more.

The brother of the guy who left the greatest military in history in the hands of “Insane” also wants to be President.

No no stop laughing.

This is true and according to polling (I’m guessing they are polling the same people they weekly ask about their job status) the brother of the man who struggled to pronounce nuclear is leading all Republican “hopefuls”.

It appears an epiphany is in order.

I am done blaming Curly, Moe, and Barry.

Let us put the responsibility of their behavior exactly where it belongs.

On us.

We put them there.

We’ve allowed them to convince us that to be safe we had to ignore the laws of America.

We’ve been convinced drugs are good, saving money is bad, and hard work is for the foolish.

That climate change is controlled by human consumption but adding millions of consuming illegal “immigrants” will somehow save the day.

That never ending debt, war, and greed will bring us peace and prosperity.

It appears we need a fifth grader…we may be better off with a child leading us.

Although two more years of Common Core and they may not understand “is” either.

Still, with the leader of the Choom Gang attempting to shoot par as often as possible I have no doubt more kids will learn to inhale.

That will be one thing Net Neutrality certainly won’t slow down.

Ahh America…just leave the door shut and open a window to a new path, a brighter day.

Free will still prevails here.

Let us gather our people and ensure Freedom still exists in the future.

One voice at a time.

This is OUR country!!!

“Late Bird” by Jason Kraus

Restoring a nation one voice at a time.

Google, Story Connection TV…and the Tom Sullivan Show

To whom much is given much is expected.

I was given the gift of being born an American and blessed with two parents who loved me.

Much was given.  Much is expected.

On Monday I sat with and was interviewed by a lovely woman (Danna Dennis Wilberg)and her talented crew (Lisa Farr et al) and recorded two television shows for Story Connection TV that will soon be released on Access Sacramento.

Wonderful people, wonderful time.

I arrived early and was rewarded with a 45 minute conversation with Danna.  She had many questions about Late Bird and the time seemed to fly by as we talked about my growing up in America, our current plight with government, and the awakening of our nation.  I’d heard many positive things about Danna from the effusive Michele Smith (publisher/publicist) and was delighted to find out they were all true and then some. I look forward to seeing her team’s collective talent on the small screen very soon.

We will of course post it on the website, www.aleadernotapolitician.com (created by the talented Onyx Pike), Facebook, and YouTube for all to see.

We keep moving the message.

One voice,  one video (thank you Jerry Galerkin), one share, one TV show at a time:)

Speaking of moving the message on Tuesday I had two minutes, via the telephone, on the Tom Sullivan Show in New York. (Syndicated,Fox News, KFBK Local Sacramento Station)

He’d just spent 30 minutes talking about our corrupt government and how everyone was bought and paid for on the radio.  A wonderful American had called in and told him to check out Jason Kraus.  At that point Tom said my name almost a dozen times over the airwaves (we thank you Tom) and then followed that up each time by telling the audience Jason Kraus doesn’t have a prayer.  Who is Jason Kraus he kept asking, why haven’t I heard about him?  After Googling Jason Kraus he still couldn’t find me.

For the record I Googled Jason Kraus.

I was fifth and seventh on the first page.

I also Googled Jason Kraus for President.

I was the top six…on the FIRST PAGE.

Not so difficult Mr. Sullivan.  No so difficult.

(Tom Sullivan Show, (866) 859-2788, Monday thru Friday Noon to 3:00 Standard Pacific Time in case anyone would like to explain how easy it is to find Jason Kraus, share our message, provide him an explanation on how Google works, or just give him some love.  Eeyore probably just needs a hug from Americans on the Freedom Train:)

Nevertheless after a couple of minutes of Tom on the Tom Sullivan Show telling millions of listeners (hopefully…and again thank you Tom) that I had no chance and was going to get crushed (which one is it brother Sullivan?  No chance or getting crushed? Getting crushed implies I have a chance) I decided I’d had enough and called the show.

After a short two minute chat whereby we exchanged “pleasantries” Tom took his opportunity to wish me luck and then the phone went dead.

A little later I heard him say again because I don’t have or won’t accept millions, if not billions of dollars, my offer of service to America will go unaccepted.

WRONG!!!

I have made the call and will continue to make the call currently for 10 million voices.  3 percent of the American population to join me in doing what all of you do so well.

Serve America!

We have no room for the cynical, the complaining, and as I’ve written before the Eeyore Effect.

Let’s be very clear here.  We aren’t asking PERMISSION!

This is OUR country!

This is the land of the free, the home of the brave!

The birthplace of the fierce, the loyal, the strong.

Just keep telling us no way or it will never going to happen.

You’re only fueling the fire. (Not that we need it.)

Just keep on whining and complaining about our problems while the rest of us get to work, one voice at a time.  Stay focused on the television and very soon you will see the greatness of America ROARING before your very eyes!

Because this much I know.  New American Brothers and Sisters are joining with us everyday.  We grow in scope, in size, in solidarity.  We protect the weak and laugh in the faces of the wrong.

Our swords are sharpened and our pens are flowing as voice after voice screams out:

I AM AN AMERICAN!

Much was given.  Much is expected.

Those expectations shall be met.

I pledge my allegiance to the United States of America.

God shed his grace on thee.

Human Trafficking, Selfie Sticks, a Coke and a Smile

I refer to it as the 80 -20 rule.  Eighty percent of you agree with what I am saying on a regular basis.  You are strong, fearless, and knowledgeable of what is happening in today’s society and around the world. You offer support, respectful insight, and information while spreading our message all over America.

You read the entire column.

Even our responsible first time readers, which we have every day, don’t finish the current column and then opine, “well you seem to understand the problems (thanks Sheldon Cooper) but how would you fix it?”

Our first time readers already know we have problems, recognize their own voice, words, and frustration, and exercise their energy and belief in personal responsibility and take THIRTY SECONDS to surf down the page or go to our website to find lo and behold the answers to all of their questions have been covered in column after column or video for the last SIX MONTHS.

This is you.  This is the 80 percent.  American men and women who get up at the crack of dawn every day and return home after sunset from a long day of work.  A hard but meaningful eight to ten to twelve to sometimes fourteen hour day of American sweat and equity without complaint.

You live in the real world and do what needs to be done because it needs to be done!

You don’t need me to explain things.  You don’t need to be led to water.

You are carrying the water for millions of others and only drink when absolutely necessary because that’s what Americans do!

Our predicament is understood by you on a visceral and financial level.  You know these things aren’t “complicated” or impossible to fix.

It takes ethics and perseverance.

Two things all of you have.

That’s why we refer to it as Shoulder to Shoulder.  We are in this together gathering one voice at a time.  No responsible voice is more or less important than the next.  We need them all and lovers of America are gathering, hungry to replace oppression with freedom.

Then we have the twenty percent.

Fifteen percent still support Obama.  This is an egregious error because it hardens the rest of us in our belief that they simply will not learn.  They have the capacity but choose to not deal in facts and reality.

We are a forgiving people but when we as a society understand their behavior is due to ignorance rather than intellect our compassion disappears.  I have warned about the pendulum swinging back for quite a while.

Energy of any kind doesn’t build momentum and then stop where you think it should.  When the box has been wound and wound no one of the “progressive” mind set should be surprised when Jack is in their face.

Every action has a reaction and the abuse laid upon the American people by Republican and Democratic politicians and those who continue to support these overt liars is now searching for an outlet.

The anger coming with this momentum is going to be tremendous.

The collapsing systems all around us will only increase America’s frustration.

Let me give you an example of ignorance rather than intellect.  I just finished reading a column in the Huffington Post.  Yes I know.  But I make it point to read “HuffPo”, Salon, and listen to as much of MSNBC as I can stomach.

Although I appreciate different opinions…propaganda and out right lies are a threat to freedom.

I watch, read, and listen to ascertain whether or not the progressive/oppressive mind set is barreling further off the rails.  Friends close enemies closer and although I hate to say it some of these people are enemies of freedom.

Nothing wrong with America.  Definitely something wrong with some Americans.

The column in HuffPo started out with a complete rewrite of American history followed by a layering of racism or as it is called these days, “white guilt”, “white privilege”, or white man bad”.  The writer then moved on to explain how America is living on borrowed time because of the Bible thumpers, climate deniers, and slavery.

Yes slavery.

Apparently no one has gotten over it, never mind the fact, that most people under the age of 35 couldn’t tell you anything about the Emancipation Proclamation, by whom this was proclaimed, or in what CENTURY this took place.

Nope…slavery alive and well.

Well…part of that is correct.

Slavery is alive and well and happening right now through our border.  It’s called Human Trafficking and some young girl or woman was just sold to the highest bidder.

So yes slavery does exist.

Maybe the writer should be focusing on what’s happening TODAY rather than centuries ago.  But then again that wouldn’t fit the agenda of self-loathing and the propping up of the current failure in the White House who is probably golfing somewhere.

Selfie Stick Slick who meets with Fruit Loop bathers and Pimps with Limps is ready to approve a Nuclear Arms deal with Iran.

Sounds about right.

Finally we have the 5 percent.  These are the people who abhor Obama, complain nonstop about all politicians and rant over and over that we need “regular” Americans in politics.

When one is found, willing to put themselves on the line in service to America…the 5 percent attack.

They won’t do any research.  They won’t listen to their friends.  They won’t bother getting involved because “it will never happen” or what does this “regular” person know about politics.  They moan about the problem but are unwilling to help when a new way arrives.  They’d rather gripe than take the time to really do something and we certainly won’t see them putting their NAME on the line.

I call this the “Eeyore Effect”.

We all know some of these people.  What’s amazing to me is how impressed they are with their own intelligence and life experience. They have all the answers never mind the fact that it’s America who carries them to water and holds them as they drink so they don’t drown in their own self-righteous indignation.

I actually prefer the Obama supporters to the Eeyores.  At least we know where the Selfie Stick supporters stand.

The Eeyores cause much more damage due to their Trojan Horse belief system.

As I’ve said plenty of times.  I am not here to convince.  I am here to inspire.

If you need convincing of our issues or think things are just fine…well…Hillary, Elizabeth, Jeb, or Marco would all appreciate you sending them a check.

They all take money, are career politicians, get paid by our tax dollars, and love the border just the way it is.

But if you are tired of the lies, the debt, slavery, and the overt disrespect to our military and tax paying citizens…then join us.

Someone who knows me very well was asked a question recently.

“Did you think Jason would try something like this?”

With a small nod, “if you really know Jason you know this isn’t about him.  He’s a very private person and I am a bit surprised he is willing to share so much about his life.”

They continued with a wry smile, “but once Jason says he is going to do something either get on board or get out of the way.  He’ll run you over.”

As I’ve told people many times I will not stop.  But the statement above is true.  This isn’t about me.  It never was, is, or will be.  It’s about America.  It’s about you.  It’s about us.

It’s about the 80 percent who show up every day proclaiming for the world to hear,

“We Are Americans and we love OUR country!”

So to all you Obama acolytes and Eeyore ingenues…

Have a Coke and a smile.

The Freedom Train is coming through.

A letter from America

I really enjoy hearing from all of you.  The numbers are now so large it is hard to respond to everyone.  But I hear you and many of your letters, notes, or comments turn into the next column or provide me with an even greater relationship with my American Brothers and Sisters.  For every negative comment it seems I receive ten in the affirmative.  One Obama supporter asked me one time why I didn’t respond to her rant.  For the record I did respond.

I deleted it:)

If I don’t have time to respond to all of you wonderful people who love and cherish the greatest country in the history of man why would I bother with anyone else?

Of course the question answers itself.

I don’t.

We aren’t  here to make “nice” with supporters of oppression.  We are here to make a difference, reclaim our birthright, and restore our country.  With that said I recently received a letter from an American Sister.  With her permission I am sharing a part of it with you because it moved me.

God bless the United States.

Shoulder to shoulder.

One voice at a time.

Introducing the voice of Valerie Lever:

Jason,

I finally was able to read the book and I will say that from the very beginning it caught my attention….I enjoyed the way you were able to tell about your family life and how I could easily draw my own pictures from your writing….we both grew up with a lot of the same family values, being taught to help others, to use our manners, do the right thing and to be a part of giving to society, not taking….I so felt the agony of your mother when she paid a visit to public assistance, the disrespect she was submitted to by a case worker…I too felt that shame she was made to feel by just trying to get a little help for her family.

Your word pictures of high school brought back so many memories of the kids I knew, the special teachers, and the not so special teachers,and the things I learned. I wasn’t a boy so I didn’t participate in baseball, etc….but I have awesome memories of the junior/senior powder-puff football game at the end of the year….a memory I will never forget…it was tag football…we grabbed a rag hanging off the back of each player….I was a lowly junior and I grabbed for a Senior’s rag and by mistake caught the bottom of her shirt which, being old, ripped, and exposed much of her bra in the front…the stands erupted in laughter.

I thought it was going to be my last night on earth…but we actually became good friends and were able to laugh about that ourselves….excuse me, I do ramble on….anyway, back to your book.

I love the way you made the story come to life…and the ideas you have for this country to get it back in the hands of true Americans.

Those who love and have pride for this great land.

I agree with every one of your ideas, no income tax, a consumption tax, closing and protecting the border, and the steps to become a legal American.

I love that someone finally agrees that we must have ID to vote and the idea of the US Military and Protection Tax.

I love the idea of owning a tax free home, to know that if you pay for it you don’t have to worry about losing it for unpaid taxes and the idea of us not having to support every yo-yo who serves in Congress for the rest of their lives.

Jason, I’ve been spreading the word trying to get people motivated with excitement about you and your running for president….I’m having luck with some but am disappointed with many people who will make comments such as “that’s nice but he’ll never get elected” or  “he isn’t known” or “they’ll never let him get away with his ideas”.

On and on with negative instead of positive comments and thoughts….I get so frustrated.

I usually tell them that if they would get a positive attitude, and think yes it can be done, we can get our old America back, and someone who feels the way we do can get elected if each person who agreed would just inform 10 people who would be excited about the idea and each of those 10 would do the same with 10 more, and so on, before we know it the word would spread like wildfire….so yes, we can do it!

We can get you elected but we must believe that it can be done!

I want to just jerk a knot in some people’s heads.

I tell them “well then just go on about voting for someone who makes all these promises and who you find out after the elections are the same old liars as the rest have been….we keep doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.”

When will they ever learn?

I want it now.

In this next election!

Anyway, I didn’t mean to write a book but I’m excited to spread the news and excited to be on board the “Freedom Train”!

Maybe I expect too much…maybe I can’t get my ten, maybe I’ll have to settle for five…omit that…I will not settle for five, nor ten….I’m shooting for at least one hundred!

“One voice at a time”

Valerie

Amen Valerie.

Amen.

Let the call roar far and wide across these United States currently seeking just 10 million American voices to join us and forward the message along.

Voices that make up 3 percent of population.

The message is freedom…as you well know.

The time is now.

Shoulder to shoulder.

This is OUR country.

Jerry, Barack, and the Force

Happy Sunday and welcome to “This is America 2015!”

Jerry Brown recently told Californians to take shorter showers in regards to the “drought” (see poor planning and over-population) happening across the Golden State.  At the same time he made this proclamation the local water district in my neck of the woods (Northern California) made a deal to sell our “surplus” water to another district for what I am sure will be a nice tidy profit.

I’ll take as long a shower as I want.

The hypocrisy here is stunning.  The Democratic Governor doesn’t care what we do in our “bedrooms” but the bathroom…well now…that’s open season.

Pretty soon Bullet Train Jerry will be screeching about flushing only when “Brown”.

Come on Democrats.  You know you laughed at that one.

Barack Obama recently pontificated on “mandatory” voting.  He believes it would change the American landscape forever.

The man elected twice by the freest country on Earth wants to force American citizens to vote.

Well…why not.

He’s forcing us into another war by actively siding with the Shiite Muslim population.

Understand the difference America.

ISIS, Al Qaeda, and Saudi Arabia equal Sunni.  Iran, Hezbollah, and for practical matters Hamas equal Shiite.  They hate and are killing each other as we speak.

There are no “good guys” here.  Obama is forcing us to choose the Crips over the Bloods.  This certainly isn’t Churchillian, or even Nevillean.  This is incredible irrationality…or simply by design.

He’s forcing us to financially supplement many health insurance companies by threatening us with fines or overtly keeping citizens tax returns.

He is forcing us into financial calamity with trillions in increases of our debt.

While the man golfs and poses for pictures with a selfie stick, children across America are being bullied and beaten.

While Obama chides Christians for being “judgmental” the “J.V.” team just cut the heads off the aforementioned group for being…followers of Jesus.

Hypocrisy knows no bounds.

I don’t believe in turning the other cheek.  The one time I did it almost cost me a broken nose.

Besides America, we are out of cheeks to turn.

It is time to acknowledge far and wide that the experiment known as Barack Obama has failed.

The debt has more than doubled, illegal entry to the United States is not only allowed but encouraged.

The Federal Government is in control of everything from our retirement (social security) health insurance (medicare, medicaid, obamacare) housing (fannie mae and freddie mac) interest rates (federal reserve) and education (common core and federal student loans) and everyone of these “programs” is living on borrowed time and will eventually collapse.

It’s not an “if” thing.  It’s a “when” thing.

Some people will excuse Obama for his actions.  Others will blame Bush.

In many ways I don’t even recognize my own country anymore.

When flying the flag is considered racist…we have a problem.

When United States taxpayer funded schools celebrate Cinco De Mayo as an American holiday…we have a problem.

When the ethics of the leadership of an American university (Michigan) have to be corrected by a football coach…we have a problem.

When the Supreme Court upholds a law that was created on one lie after another and those lies can be seen on video…we have a problem.

But when the Leader of the Free World continues to rationalize the behavior of systemic oppression (Islam) in general by comparing and contrasting said behavior with distortion, disinformation, and dishonesty we don’t have a problem…we have an emergency.

So my fellow citizens I ask you.  How much more do you think our society can take before it breaks?

How much more before you are ready to actively involve yourself in moving our message?

A message of freedom, personal responsibility, and the pursuit of happiness by the individual.  A message of assertive action and leadership by example to rid ourselves of “democracy” and restore our Constitutional Republic and the freedom and protection of the American individual.

Of the People, By the People, For the People.

Or do we just get in line and wait for Jerry to show up at the door with his bucket for our weekly shower.

One term, no campaign contributions, no salary, close the border, abolish income tax and free the American citizen to do what we do better than any nation on the planet.

Work!

Work not war.

Work with me to free the people.

Shoulder to shoulder.  One voice at a time.

This is OUR country!

Definition of Insanity

While Obama was lying to us (again) about…(does it really matter what the subject is anymore), we found out Lois Lerner will not be prosecuted, Hillary “probably” broke the law according to a Republican Senator  (insert laughter here), and a pizza place in Indiana that has never done catering decided to not cater to someone because of their religious beliefs.

Sometimes this stuff just writes itself!

Okay!  I think we are all caught up on the absurdity known as today’s American political “leadership” and the American “media”.

Well…not quite.

Teachers in Georgia were convicted under the RICO act for changing grades of students for years to receive Federal funding and are looking at possibly decades in prison.  Didn’t hear too much about this anywhere…probably not important enough, you know that crazy stuff like education and what not, is just pure silliness.  I mean if you are changing all the students answers on tests it does make it quite a bit easier to not worry whether they are actually in class learning anything.

They’ll probably just fall back on the old stand by at their sentencing hearing.  “It’s George Bush’s fault your honor…he didn’t say they had to learn anything or even do their own work…he said ‘no child left behind’.”

As if the failings of “progressives” weren’t covered enough we heard an artful reset of Jimmy Carter’s “malaise” speech by none other than Governor Jerry Brown explaining that it’s just the way it is in California now people…the greenies have turned our state brown.  Yes I am paraphrasing but his “Wah Wah” Charlie Brown rhetoric about a shortage of water was a historic flashback to gas lines in the seventies when the Georgia Peanut tried to sell America on the New Normal…as in life will suck from this point on.

God bless these Democratic Politicians.  At least they are consistent.

What’s that Democratic supporters?  Republican politicians lie too?

Touche’ (that’s French).  Of course they do.  Now go find a Republican supporter to argue with and make yourself feel better.  You won’t find one here.

Regardless of the noise a very silent and deadly cancer continued to spread throughout our country as the debt increased, and although it won’t be reported anywhere, because what people do with pepperoni is so much more important, women and children were sold into slavery today through our wide open border.

The terminology is “human trafficking” but we all know it means rape, beatings, and sometimes murder all because the President of the United States will not close the border.

Something the last President didn’t do either.

Or the one before him…

Or the one before him…

And the one before him made legal everyone who was here illegally.

I’m sensing a pattern here.

We put a man on the moon but we can’t secure some land.

We defeated Nazism in Europe but are unable to build and enforce a fence line in America.

We’ve created nuclear submarines that are virtually undetectable and house human beings underwater for long periods of time but we cannot create a simple picket.

We are we sending food, money, supplies, and our military (using borrowed funds) all over the world but unwilling to protect our own citizens and way of life.

Why are Iraqi women and children more important than American women and children? Why is Iraqi land more important than American land?

Let me answer that for you.

They aren’t and it isn’t.

But here we are year after year, decade after decade, president after liar, with the same problems.

I received an email from none other than Ted Cruz.  Some of you may have received it too.  He wanted to tell me how much trouble we were in and the only way to address this was to send him money.  How droll.

I also received an email from none other than Barack Obama himself!  What a sweet guy!  With all that’s happening in the world he took a little time out and sent me an update on how we just struck a great deal with Iran!

Good job Mr. President!

I was really worried about how you were going to show your support for the Shiite Muslim population.  Mission Accomplished!

I know the Sunnis in Saudi Arabia aren’t going to be too happy never mind our ALLY in Israel but hey why should Israel care you just made a deal with a country who wants to blow them off the face of the map.

Pish posh Oh Great One.  Trivial matters at best right? Excellent work!  A quick question while I have you though.

What about the American kids in Chicago killing each other?

What’s that?  I can’t hear you…sounds like crickets.  Maybe our connection is poor.  Let me try again.

What about our debt that just moved closer to 20 trillion?

I’m sorry sir but I am not hearing anything on your end.  Must be the net neutrality kicking in.  I will try one last time.

What about the women and children that were just sold into slavery through our border?

What’s that?  You aren’t familiar with these things because you haven’t seen them on the nightly news? Good point fearless leader.  I haven’t seen them there either.

Have you heard about the water issue in California?  You have?  You just purchased a home in Southern California? Nice.  Probably really close to a lush green golf course huh?  Yeah that’s what I thought.  Well let me ask you this.  Why are we continuing to build thousands and thousands of houses when we don’t have enough water for the people here right now? That’s a State’s rights issue? I should ask Moonbeam…err…Jerry?  Okay thanks Mr. President.  Appreciate the info.

Hey before you go it just hit the wire that Iran is calling you a liar and we only created half of the jobs we thought we were going to get in the current employment numbers.  Is everything okay?  As long as you are rich everything will be fine?  What if we aren’t rich?  Better find a paddle?

Hmm…oh hang on a second Mr. President I just received another email from…Ted Cruz.

“I need your money if we are to save America.  Yep yep.  I’ll close that border if you just send me your money.”

Yep yep.  We’ve all heard that one before.

Are you ready for another option yet America?

One term.  No campaign contributions.  No salary.  Border closed.  Income tax removed.

The choice is yours.

Or we can just continue on with the insanity of it all.

Extra cheese anyone?

A question was asked recently,  “Why do you want to be President?”  It’s a great question and one that must be asked of anyone applying for the job.  There’s been lots of different answers over the years. Most of them are lies.

My answer is this.  “I don’t want to be President.”

Anyone who is sane and genuinely spends anytime thinking about doing this job will always come to the same conclusion.

Nope.

“Want” cannot be the reason.

The incredible power and overwhelming responsibility should stop any rational, ethical human immediately, eliciting a resounding “who would WANT to do that?”

The reason the last three Presidents have been such failures is due to the fulfilling of their own “wants” or desires.

Anyone proclaiming to want to be President of the United States should be ruled out immediately.

Want isn’t strong enough.

It has to be about service.

It has to be about duty.

American soldiers did not WANT to storm Normandy Beach.  Our best and our bravest did not WANT to be air lifted and dropped into Vietnam.  Today’s heroes do not WANT to be anywhere near Afghanistan or Iraq.

American soldiers continue to step in front of harms way because of DUTY.

Duty to their brothers.  Duty to America.

They know the politicians lie.  They are the “boots on the ground”.  Their information or intel is accurate because they are experiencing first hand what politicians continue to ignore or lie about and yet the American Soldier still stands and delivers every time.  It’s well beyond want.

Their call to duty and belief in America and American values are why they continue to answer the call everyday, even in the face of extreme circumstances.

I don’t “want” to be President.

I’ve given this subject a lot of thought.  The next person to take the job will be coming into an incredible mess where brutally difficult decisions pertaining to human life and death will have to be made in order to protect freedom here and around the world.  The next person will have to undo decades of corruption, coercion, and criminal activity.  They will receive death threats if not very real attempts on their life.  Every word, every syllable uttered from this person’s mouth will be dissected, dismembered, and purposely displaced.  With each decision the ethical leader will always internally inquire,”am I sure I am making the right call”, knowing full well there is no right decision in many cases.  Just things that unfortunately have to be done because of past deeds or current crisis.  With many of these decisions, the ethical mind will wonder (rightly so) if they are losing part or all of their soul.

Yet with everything just listed the stress of the Presidency pales in comparison to the American Soldier in combat.

In fact it doesn’t compare at all.

The American Soldier believes in duty and service to America.

It’s time the Commander-in-chief does as well.

One term, no campaign contributions, no salary.

Service to the people.  Service to our military.  Service to America.

I don’t “want” to be President.

It’s well beyond this.

Duty not desire.

Trust and Loyalty never have to be verified

There’s seems to be an expiration date on everything…except maybe Twinkies.

Thankfully, Presidential cycles have expiration dates lest we be stuck in perpetuity with the “Chosen One”.

The Obama cycle already feels like an eternity.

But through all this it is our personal relationships that dictate whether a society remains strong.  In America our personal relationships are centered on the family unit.  A husband and wife, mother and father, children and pets, grandparents, brothers and sisters.  All relationships count on clear communication but the family unit, children or no, truly benefits through time together as compassion, empathy, and nurturing grows in an intimate and powerful way.  When emotional barriers and walls are removed, trust and loyalty are both rewarded, setting the tone for a society to grow in a positive manner.

Trust and loyalty are required for Freedom to prevail.

Trust and loyalty allow for love to thrive.  Love by definition is the giving to someone else with no expectations of anything in return.

Along with an incredible work ethic, the traits of trust, loyalty, and love are the pillars of our society.

It’s why we are struggling so much as a country, a nation, a people.

We don’t trust anything happening in Government these days.  Because we have no trust we cannot establish loyalty.  In the past most Americans would readily wear the label of Democrat or Republican.  Now, more than ever Americans are registering with no affiliate or declining to state a party.

We don’t trust so we don’t extend our loyalty.

No trust, no loyalty, no belongingness, no love.

As the American family goes, so goes America…and the American family is struggling.

Under or unemployed, living paycheck to paycheck, or on some type of government assistance is a brutal way to live for any person.  But when at least a third of the country is going through this, systemic changes HAVE to be made.

We cannot allow another American generation to live in systemic poverty dictated by immoral politicians who create more division and distrust while never solving a single problem.

The reason we are being successful in the growth of our mission to reclaim and restore America is because in here trust has been established.

Through the book, columns, videos, and your comments, we have established a family.  Thousands of American Brothers and Sisters coming together from all over the greatest nation in the history of man!

In here, right here, we have trust!

Because trust has been established loyalty has been built.  We have bonded through communication.  I know this because of your willingness to like, comment, and most importantly share our message.  I also know this because as we grow I receive more and more wonderful messages from all over America.

Although I cannot answer every single comment I do see many of you commenting positively on each others thoughts.  I smile when I see this.  I also notice many of you are quick to defend me when the occasional “stage five clinger” decides to say something unpleasant.

What I am really impressed with is rather than provide negative feedback to the “lost soul” many of you will immediately put in comments of how much you love the current column.  This is true communication and it is much appreciated as we never “feed the animals.”  Besides I BBD (block, ban, delete) them anyway.  We want like minds.  We aren’t here to convince.  We are here to inspire!

For the record…you inspire me.

The trust and loyalty we have for, and with each other, fuels me to find better ways to show you how much each and every one of you mean, to not just me…but to America.

It is because of this trust and loyalty found amongst all of us that our message will grow and grow until we have reclaimed our rightful place in America.

At the top with love for all…all things American.

God bless these United States.

We are on our way.

Social Security, Obamacare, and 18 trillion in debt…something’s gotta give.

Recently on a television “news” show a proclamation from a self-described “Boomer” gave me a chuckle.

“Kids these days don’t have any drive or desire.  They just sit around waiting for things to happen.”

This was a reference to the Millennials.

I am constantly moving around in today’s society.  I see the Millennials working all the time.  Most of them aren’t making too much money but they seem to be plugging away never mind the student loan debt bestowed upon them by an irresponsible government to allow overpriced universities and professors to pontificate about meaningless subjects that teach nothing about the reality of today’s world.

This has been going on for decades.

I remember my last day of college.  I walked off the campus, smiled, paused on some steps and looked out over the landscape.  I thought to myself. I am an educated man…and trained to do nothing.

Even in my youth I knew “college” wasn’t preparing me for anything.

It’s why the theory “college graduates have lower rates of unemployment” is ridiculous.

It is based on a false premise.

The premise leads us to believe a person must go to “college”, and fork over tens of thousands of dollars, to become more employable.

Nothing like crushing debt in your teenage years to pave the way to financial freedom and the pursuit of happiness.

This is patently false and being used against American parents and students.

To be clear I am specifically talking about the “Universities”.

Not community colleges or trade schools, although they have been hit by the artificial inflation of the government’s heavy hand as well.

The reason people with college degrees are more employable has everything to do with their written, verbal, and spatial skills being superior to their competition.  This is the reason they are able to ATTEND college in the first place.  All schools have minimum requirements that must be achieved prior to enrollment.

Combine these skills with an eagerness to persevere (wanting to go to college) and the willingness to achieve stated goals (being accepted), garners these types of humans as very employable and well above their peers BEFORE they attend any university.

My point is the kids going to college are going to be more successful than their peers (they already are), and easier to employ, whether they go or not.

An English Lit class, a few dorm parties, and a senior project on the reason people who receive their Ph.D’s suddenly are all named “Doctor” isn’t going to catapult the college student into a six figure job.

Don’t get me wrong I enjoyed my time in college and I graduated from a fine institution.  I actually had a great English Lit class and a wonderful professor for my senior project which had nothing to do with the aforementioned “Doctor” label.  I also learned “hair of the dog” isn’t true.  At least not in my case.

Although college was fun (most of it) it didn’t change my options.

It was the skills I gathered before college that lead me to success in life.

In fact it was the jobs I had in my youth and during college that real knowledge was gathered.  Did I learn things in my pursuit of a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology.

Of course I did.

Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs is a beautiful thing. But I, as do we all, inherently know about water, food, and shelter and even though I couldn’t explain belongingness before a particular class, I still understood the search to fulfill my self.

In any right, explaining belongingness never got me hired or promoted.  In one case I was told my explanation of motivating people was “too California”.  I was still promoted in spite of my “education”.

Still, some of the Millennials can be a bit aloof or even cold, and the face piercings and neck tattoos are a bit much for me…but what do you expect?

For the last twenty five years they’ve been watching the world’s worst generation of politicians screw everything up.  They don’t know whether they are coming or going.

They are constantly bombarded with the issues of the 60’s that only exist in the minds of their grandparents.

They keep hearing about racism but they don’t really buy it.  Their generation dates amongst itself regardless of skin color and moves freely throughout their environment.

It isn’t the color of their skin that binds or separates them.

It’s their individual desires and the pursuit of their own happiness that causes their success or failure.

Frankly, most of them just roll their eyes at the noise coming from their “elders” or the media, keep their heads down, work hard, save a little, and “wait for the world to change”.

I don’t blame them one bit.  They didn’t create this mess…but they are being forced to clean it up.

Social Security, Medicare, and Obamacare are just three things this generation is going to suffer through because of the choices made by grand mammy and grand pappy.

If that wasn’t enough those same grandparents have created very real issues like obesity, crushing debt, sexual dysfunction, and rampant “recreational” drug usage.

You cannot feed a generation Cheerios and chocolate milk for breakfast, trade mommy’s and daddy’s every other minute through screaming, debt ridden divorces and then call marijuana “medicinal” without serious repercussions to a society.

Welcome to the serious repercussions.

Now I want to be clear.  There are millions in the Boomer Generation who are wonderful hard working, responsible citizens.  Thank you!  If you didn’t exist every city in America would mirror Detroit, Stockton, or Sodom and Gomorrah.

But the youngest members of the Boomer Generation have been here at least 50 years. Why are some of you requiring young people in their 20’s to fund your healthcare (Obamacare)?

As a voting block, Americans over 50 that don’t have any savings or a house paid off…better pay attention.

The debt is too large (18 trillion), to pay back the interest, let alone the principle, continue to fund underfunded Social Security, Medicare, AND Obamacare.

Irresponsible Boomers will have a very real choice made for them when the United States Federal Government cannot raise the debt ceiling anymore and interest rates finally escape the oppressive tactics of Janet Yellin.

If you think the Federal Government is going to fund any of the above before they pay the debt you are sadly mistaken.

What is happening right now is the forcing of future economic growth into current times.  This has been happening for years.

The only option other than drastic cuts, bankruptcies, and foreclosures is to grow the economy.

But it is now increasingly clear the Boomer politicians are not only not going to fix anything but are continuing to dig our hole even deeper.  You will soon be hearing about a debt ceiling increase taking us to 20 trillion or more in the next few months.  Obama will threaten to not pay the military or send out Social Security checks, as he has threatened in the past.  The Republicans will howl as though they actually have a backbone while they pack more pork into their own bellies.  What’s really absurd is, more than likely, a backroom deal has already been cut.

It’s like listening to Janet Yellin.

There is no way she will ever substantially raise interest rates.  Even a small rate hike is unlikely.  If a miracle were to occur and she did, it would only be for a short period of time before she would remove it and probably return to QE forever.  The Boomer politicians know…they are too far in.  There is no return from this amount of debt regardless of what their meaningless CBO projections say.  Garbage stats in garbage stats out.

But I digress.

We do have a way to fix this but our light is dimming every second these liars stay in power.

The way to fix this is to free the Millennials to work, earn, and save in a safe and free nation.

The only way this happens is the removal of all taxes related to income and the closure of our borders.

The choice is yours 50 and over who still support Bush or re-elected Obama. As you are pondering this though, let me provide some clarity and information.  In bankruptcy Stockton has already cut promised medical benefits to some retirees.  Detroit went even further.  They turned off the water to citizens houses who wouldn’t or couldn’t pay.

You see, it won’t be the Millennials who suffer in the next decade.  They’re already broke, besides they’re young.  They still have their health.  They will find new ways to survive and thrive.

Either free them to clean up the mess…or continue on your current path of voting for debt, war, and lawlessness that’s happening in both parties.

We have serious problems.  We need serious leaders.  Not Republican or Democratic lies and abuse.

We need Americans to stand up.

Now.

Right now

Our ABC Absolutes

Regularly across America “columnists” will opine about the danger of guns.  Many anti-gun activists actively salivate awaiting the next time a small town has a shooting.  Not sure why they “wait”.  Opportunities for their shtick happen almost every weekend in Chicago or Los Angeles yet we rarely hear about this.  I guess it doesn’t fit their “agenda”.

Some of these “journalists” blame the gun for the ills of man.  As though the gun is self-loading, clicks off its own safety, points itself at someone, and pulls the trigger…over and over again.

But for the purpose of providing a lesson in logic let us accept the premise that an inanimate object can do all of these things. (I know.  Humor me:)

If the “gun” is responsible for shootings then applying “logic” automobiles are to blame for accidents.  Ice cream for type two diabetes, Coca Cola for cavities, and any woman in the vicinity of Bill Clinton.

It’s Hillary’s server, Lois Lerner’s emails, and the underwear, not the idiot, that is to blame for “pants on the ground”.

This type of logic writes itself.  Hillary blames the server for not being able to locate Lois’s emails because Bill’s underwear will not allow themselves to be pulled up.

Then again “what difference does it make?”

In this instance the important difference is our being dictated to by people who genuinely believe, and have proven, they can blame anyone or anything at anytime…and get away with it.

We have to create new absolutes in our way of thinking.  In absolutes I mean no matter what…these rules never change. It is the only way to remove the parasites eating away at America.  We will call these our ABC absolutes.

Absolute A.  Anyone running for any office who accepts campaign contributions is called a politician.

Absolute B. All politicians lie.

Absolute C.  Never vote for a liar.

If A….then B….then C.

It’s really quite easy to understand, simple to follow, and I guarantee will work 100 percent of the time.  Logic.

Unlike the blaming of a gun or a server or all that underwear nonsense.

As Spock would say…illogical.
