The Enemy of my Enemy is not my Friend

I was a sophomore in high school in the mid eighties and dealing with a couple of upperclassmen who were bigger and stronger than I.  For those of you who’ve read Late Bird a part of this story will sound familiar. This was sometimes a daily thing because I would not cower to them.  We’d exchanged words plenty of times and suffice it to say I hated these two individuals and their friends.

One day I hustled to my next class, rounded a corner and froze.  The two bullies were standing right in front of me…facing each other.

As a child, teenager, and an adult I have always fallen into the “peacemaker” role.  When problems occurred in my life I have always tried to work through them with words first.  One tool I frequently used was the isolation of  the person most angry which allowed them to drop the “tough guy act” and calm down.  But sometimes certain people will not behave properly, no matter what is being said to them, and when they turn their anger towards the “peacemaker” (me) my ANS arousal (fight or flight) kicks in immediately.

For me the option of “flight” isn’t an option at all, so fight, is the only one left.

I am not a subscriber to the theory “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”

Evil will always be evil.

Oppression is always oppression regardless of new labels (Democratic Socialism), old acronyms (RINO), or systemic abuse of women and children (Islam).

The enemy of Freedom will always be the enemy of Freedom.

I digress.

As the two aforementioned bullies faced each other profanity and threats rang through the corridor.  I vividly remember my first instinct was to move forward and step between them.  It’s how I am wired.  I am intrinsically motivated to create peace.  To stop instability.  I don’t like chaos.  I abhor violence and am willing to jump into situations to bring it to a stop.

It isn’t courage or bravery.

I just can’t stand and watch horrible people hurt others.

But standing in front of me now were two horrible people.  I hope both of them became productive members of society as they grew older…but I doubt it.

Oppression never sees the light on its own.  Oppression must be eradicated over and over again until it no longer exists and yes I used the word eradicate and the phrase over and over again on purpose.

As I instinctively moved forward my brain immediately sent a signal.


Have you lost your mind?

If you get in between these two they will both turn on you.  I stood there for a second and then backed up and waited.  My body continued to process the situation in front of me and finally resolve and a resolution set in.

I hoped these two would destroy each other.

Evil on Evil.

Oppression on Oppression.

Sunnis (Islam) and Shiites (Islam) have been killing each other for centuries.

“Democratic Socialists” or Communists”  (U.S.S.R United Soviet SOCIALIST Republic) have killed millions and continue to murder their own citizens as I write this sentence.

We now have a situation where Sunni Muslims (Saudi Arabia, ISIS, etc.),  Shiite Muslims (Iran, Hezbollah, etc.), and the Communists (Russia) are all killing each other.

Evil on Evil.  Oppression on Oppression.

Never step between Evil eradicating Evil.

The enemy of our enemy doesn’t make them our friend.

Our problem is an enemy of Freedom currently resides at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and is being enabled by a majority of Congress.

Sitting in the White House is a man who supports Shiite Islam…whether you want to admit that to yourself or not.

This same man has also removed missiles meant to defend our allies from Russia while telling Sergei Medvedev to tell Vladimir Putin that he (Obama) would have more “flexibility” after the election in 2012.

Obama’s flexibility now has the Middle East in flames, Russia stoking the fire, and Europe being infiltrated and bombed.

France is now apparently reaching out to Putin because Francois Hollande is a political baboon, a coward, and a Democratic Socialist.  The French Citizenry is now on the front lines because they elected an enabling  Islamic apologist.

Germany has one as well in Angela Merkel.

France has now had its people murdered twice this year by Islam.  They finally closed their border…hundreds of citizens too late.  Hollande is incompetent and scared and is reaching for the only hand being offered…Putin.

Vladimir Putin is a murdering thug and evil personified.

The enemy of your enemy does not make them your friend.

France is opening the door for what it believes is the lesser of two evils.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

Collective Islam is nothing compared to the Russian Bear and both pale…to the American Lion.

Regardless, Americans cannot fall into the trap of siding with Communism or Islam.

Oppression is oppression is oppression.

Time to remove all enemies of Freedom…and that starts in Washington D.C.

Our government isn’t protecting us anymore.

Our biggest protection right now can be found in the water or in other words…The Pacific and Atlantic Oceans.

But those beautiful waters do not encompass us completely.  We have a massive unprotected backdoor that has allowed human trafficking (slavery) to grow and grow.

Oppression is oppression.

France has been infiltrated by Islam and Communism and willingly elected Democratic Socialism while abandoning the Franc and embracing the Euro which is collapsing under economic idiocy like Quantitative Easing and negative interest rates.

Coming to a theater near you whether you want to see the movie or not…or you can get involved.

You can stand UP!

I will be on the California ballot for the United States Senate.

I encourage anyone reading this to find an elected office in your community and put your name on the line following these guidelines:

No campaign contributions.

No salary upon election.

One term.

If we want things to truly change for the better then we must lead by example.

Everything starts with the reflection in the mirror.

Time to take a look.
