Ring of Fire

If a tree falls in the woods and no one is around does it make any noise?

I remember hearing this question as a young person.  I was fascinated by the idea of action-reaction or action-consequence, depending on your taste.

I’ve watched and heard many trees fall.

When I was present a sound was certainly made.  I’ve also walked through forests and witnessed trees on the ground laying silently knowing they had to have fallen, but for me, there was no noise.

It appears many in America have discovered Pavlov and are uncomfortably conditioned to “not hear” the sound of the tree…falling directly on them.

Then again…how much sound does it really make…and for how long?

I was in Oakland, CA last weekend for business.  Driving down Broadway everything appeared calm.  Commerce was taking place.  Cars and pedestrians were moving at normal speeds.  To arrive at my preferred location I made a couple of turns that took me down side roads.  I didn’t witness any “crime” but the collection of humans milling around with seemingly no destination while dressed in their pajamas definitely told those of us paying attention “trees” had fallen in this community many times and although they made no sound currently…the noise was deafening.

Upon my arrival I engaged in conversation with an auto dealer.  After exchanging pleasantries I commented on the armed guard that I’d passed up the street.

“Yeah this place got a little crazy a few weeks ago…you know the riots and all.  They actually burned over fifty cars just up the road.”

I turned and looked in the direction he had pointed.  There weren’t any vehicles left that I could see or any visible scars from this latest attack on America.  It was almost as if it didn’t happen.  But upon closer analysis the damage of decades of “falling trees” could be seen everywhere.

Unkempt streets, pock-marked with divots were the norm.  Gangs announced their presence with graffiti leaving a painfully dark energy amongst the humans attempting to survive.  Aforementioned pajama wearing dwellers stood in groups of two or three with slumped shoulders and bowed heads with the ever present blank stare of an animal having no thoughts of gain and nothing to lose.

Oakland.

Also known as Jerry Brown’s town.

Democracy in full effect.

The people in Oakland overwhelmingly vote for people like Brown, Nancy Pelosi, and Barack Obama.  Although their city is a mess, taxes are out of control, and crime is rampant, they continue to elect the same dead wood, every election cycle, year after year.

The Oak is known to be a strong tree.

It appears it is time to free the Oak from this habitat.

It’s only appropriate as they’ve cut down all the trees anyway.

Let us rename Oakland.

I think Flush has a nice ring to it (and better water awareness).

As in only going down…when Brown.

Thanks Jerry.

Unfortunately this mindset isn’t only found in “Flush”.

It’s also grows like a tapeworm in Los Angeles, New York City, Detroit, Chicago, and Baltimore.

Hmm…I am sensing a trend.

I often wonder as I drive down the road, while going to work, how America will turn out.

I feel a sense of duty to serve her in anyway she requires but these days…well it’s getting harder to know where to point my bullhorn.

Expensive cars whip by me at meteoric speeds, hustling and bustling to a wide variety of drive up restaurants who make our food and drink for us.

Two hundred dollar cell phones are attached to the ear of every person I see.  Some of them struggle with their pants and underwear but the phone is there nevertheless.

The stock markets are at all-time highs, and according to the government unemployment is the lowest it’s been in decades.

The dollar is strong around the world, and again according to reports, and our lovely President, we aren’t at war anymore.

A Nobel award winning economist named Paul Krugman has proclaimed debt is not only good, but of it, we are much more in need.

You are in luck Paul, as debt, is the one thing we have in droves.

Republican politicians are now embracing Obamacare and the ever growing Medicare program.

Professor Paul from his ivory tower should love this as the debt piling on through everyone having “affordable healthcare” is astounding and on its way to astronomical heights. Right along with all believers in man made “Climate Change” this individual will go down as a “Flat Earther”.

Of course this is the same man who announced we could simply “mint” a few trillion dollar coins and pay off our national debt.

Good job Nobel.  Good job.

Between your awarding Paulie Shore Krugman a Nobel Prize in Economics and Barack Obama a Nobel Prize in Peace (America has been at war every second of his Presidency, not to mention the man hates half of America, most of Israel, wanted to bomb Syria, is “flexible” with Communist Russia, and has overtly chosen Shiite over Sunni Islam) it appears No Clue is more appropriate than Nobel.

Due to the sounds coming out of Paul and Barry’s mouths on a daily basis it is fair to say many “trees” have fallen on them.

If not so serious it would almost be laughable (almost) that we are being dictated to by people who refer to themselves as a Liberal with a Conscience (an oxymoron)…or were part of the Choom Gang.

I will give this one to Obama.

At least he owned it.  He liked(s) to smoke pot and/or cocaine.

Unlike Krugman who portends Liberals have consciences and pretends he understands economics.

But hey, maybe these two squawk boxes are right.

Is debt good?

Are drugs okay?

Type two diabetes is a sign of a wealthy people?

Abandoning American troops in foreign lands is now allowable?

Cops being murdered almost daily throughout America?

College professors stating the only thing wrong with America is the presence of white males?

So let us harken back to the beginning.

When a tree falls in the woods does it make a sound?

I don’t know whether an auditory effect actually takes place.

I do know this.

There are a lot of trees on the ground that are splintered, weathered, and strong.  They’ve absorbed and taken many hits for our country.  They are now covering America with their strength, intertwined in one another, as dry as can be, providing the tinder and awaiting the spark.

The spark that sets the American blaze in motion incinerating the lies and eviscerating the liars.

That spark is everywhere in America.  It is found in small towns, country stores, and mountain tops.  But most importantly it is found in every home who believes in Freedom and the Greatness of America.

Oh yes it is.

One need only know where to look.

For those of you still not sure simply gaze into the face of your beloved children and for those of you who do not have little ones just walk into your nearest room with a mirror and take a good look.

There’s your spark.

Shoulder to shoulder.

America awaits your arrival.

Roaring.

Restoring a nation one voice at a time.

 

When politicians haven’t any answers…it’s time to stop asking questions.

I was asked recently…”when are you running for President?”

I am not “running” for President.

I am offering to serve America. I will do so with ferocity and humility but trust me when I say there will be no “running” before, during, or after.

America doesn’t “run”.

We ROAR!!!

Do not put me in the same group with all those “running” around “exploring their options” or proclaiming their candidacies and then immediately begging and bragging about how much money they fleeced from American citizens.

“You have a problem…send me your money…I will fix it.”

Sound familiar?

Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative just clamoring for the bucks.

Let’s try it this way:

We have a problem…keep your money…we will fix it together.

How hard is this?  Apparently too much for the infantile behavior of the animal known as politician.

I guess the draw of Prom King or Queen is simply too much to bear.

America has three words for you corrupt wretches.

You disgust us.

A similar question arrived as well.  “When are you going to announce your candidacy for President?”

One radio talk show host even asked me if I’d filed my Federal paperwork to take campaign contributions.

Let me say this again for the hearing impaired.

NO CAMPAIGN CONTRIBUTIONS WILL BE REQUESTED OR ACCEPTED.

Were the caps loud enough?

But you cannot win without money Jason.

According to who?

Who you Eeyore?

Who you Obama supporter?

Who you Bush apologist?

Please.

Besides, who said I wasn’t spending money.  I just said I won’t spend money from anyone else.  I am more than willing to spend mine.

It’s my money.

I earned and more importantly saved it.  I will spend it anyway I want in service to the greatest country in the history of man.

For example if you are reading this column in your email it is there because I paid a very talented individual to build our website.  The column comes to you with no charge but of course it cost money to get it there.

It is free though, for you, to forward on to your friends.

If you are reading this on Facebook I paid Facebook to “boost” this and all columns, as well as videos, to spread the message further beyond just our friends and family.  Again there is a cost to me, but none to you, to share the message on your page and thousands of others if you are so inclined.

Sharing is caring:)

What I have discovered is many of you are so inclined.

Because of the American spirit willing to fight and persevere, our message is being spread all over the country.  I’m receiving messages from everywhere in America wanting to be involved, to board the Freedom Train.

While the few grouse “it will never happen”…it is happening…right in front of their very eyes.

Stop blinking and get involved!

Although we are willing to pay the ultimate price for these United States we choose to LIVE!!!

FREE!!!

Live free with us or live somewhere else.

We are fed up with the lies of oppressive governments, and “safe spaces” for criminals to abuse our cities.

Justice is gone.

But make no mistake…a reckoning is coming.

A burgeoning anger, that will not be controlled for too much longer, smolders. We will not sit idly by as politicians and a President tell snarky jokes as our cities burn and crumble with every passing day.

American children are abused by failing schools and neglectful or absent role models whom proclaim that the children aren’t theirs but rather the “communities” to raise or love.

Ah yes, as we’ve heard, it “takes a village”.

Or “your children aren’t yours…they belong to the community.”

Thanks MSNBC for your defining of a child. Truly progressive.

The “villages” are astray as members of the liberal belief system congregate in Detroit, Chicago, Oakland, San Francisco, and Los Angeles.

Police now retreat ensconced in riot gear being bombarded by rocks, cans, trash, etc.

The Baltimore community “leader” set up “safe spaces” for the misunderstood to rant, scream, and ruin the labor of someone else while sprinting back to the “village” with bags of Doritos.

Is this what Nancy Pelosi meant by Obamacare allowing everyone to not work and find their passion?

Snacks for everyone including the Humanitarian Hamas?

Oy vey.

Where are you Hillary?

This is your village.

What do you mean you didn’t build that?

Oh yes you and Elizabeth did.

What does it matter?

Trust me madam it’s going to matter very soon.  You and your Chairman Mao sport coats will fit perfectly in Leavenworth.

Where are you Barack?

Too busy telling jokes someone else wrote for you?

Too busy making fun of Trump to notice all the carnage happening the next town over?

Destruction you put in place because of your constant attacks on law enforcement and comparisons of your own facial pigment.

Of course it isn’t Barack’s fault Obama supporters.

It’s Bush’s.

Pipe down Bush apologist.

He’s the one who gave us two terms of “dope and harangued”.

Still, Obama does have a way about him.

The “man” stares into the camera and tells America to do some “soul searching”.

Apparently on top of pseudo-economist, informational fabricator, and factually challenged  law professor, we can add the worst therapist ever.

The coupling of  the “soul searcher” with Eric Holder and his “America is full of cowards” comment only leads us to one conclusion.

The coward in the White House has nothing internally to search…although he does like to poke the “bear”.

But he, like the rest of the politicians, have been misinformed.

America isn’t filled with bears who are “flexible” with our ethics or draw “red” lines in the metaphorical sand.

America is filled with Lions who’ve been roaring for a while.

The roaring is your warning “soul searchers”.

When the American Lion goes silent…we’re done talking.

So pay attention Washington D.C.

You’re focused on the wrong issue.

Start focusing on the LAW ABIDING TAX PAYING AMERICAN CITIZEN!

If you force America’s hand we won’t be ruining our neighborhoods, running around with our faces covered like cowards.

We’ll be shoulder to shoulder, millions strong, with our heads held high, and Old Glory waving her strength, coming to you, in OUR capitol.

You better get this under control now because trust me, if you force us to go silent, a slap from our momma’s isn’t going to stop us.

Not that they would or would have to.

Real American mothers don’t raise felons.

Real American mothers raise men and women who serve the country…not themselves.

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!

Lies, Damn Lies, and Gruber

It is truly an amazing thing when the human animal ignores its instincts. I read a theory one time pertaining to the fact that in the blink of an eye our brain/instincts give us every piece of important information about the situation in front of us. I completely agree.

It takes me no more than a blink of my eyes to process what is happening in my present situation.

The problem is most of us will ignore, justify, or rationalize the things we are seeing putting us in potential danger. This is happening now. For years I’ve discussed the fight or flight mechanism in all of us. When danger appears adrenaline will immediately release into our systems allowing us to fight or run.

For anyone who has ever been in a fight or dangerous situation you know the controlling of this adrenaline must take place otherwise it can become a paralyzing force. What we’ve witnessed in America for quite a while now is that third option.

Rather than fight or flight many will freeze or do nothing when confronted with danger. Part of this is due to our society generally being peaceful. Most of us aren’t having to physically defend ourselves on a daily basis. This is of course a good thing but the skills needed to stay sharp begin to fade, and as the body goes, so goes the mind.

America is blinking and not wanting to believe what she is seeing.

It seems almost impossible if not absurd to seriously question the motives and belief system of the President of the United States.

Collectively the majority has looked the other way or simply closed their eyes to the reality that is now here.

Using Barack Obama’s own words I can call him unpatriotic. He proclaimed this about George Bush crushing us with debt. He makes Bush look like an amateur in this department.

I can use Obama’s own words to prove he is an overt liar. Keep your doctor, health insurance, not a smidgen of corruption, heard about things on the news. These are all lies easy to prove.

Jonathon Gruber actually backs up Obama’s lies with lies of his own not to mention calling Democratic voters stupid.

Lois Lerner “apologized” for her part in the corruption and then took the fifth.

We KNOW Obama is being updated on everything long before it ever hits the press in print or on television.

What’s even crazier about all of this is Obama and his minions are on VIDEO lying. We don’t need to search for proof. It’s everywhere and in color! You don’t have to read about it in black and white or worry about “context”.

The man has lied so many times about so many things I am amazed anyone even tunes in anymore.

Now many Obama supporters are staring into the abyss knowing they were had. What’s worse is they know they were manipulated by a man and his cohorts who used issues very dear to them.

Whether you agree with their views isn’t the point. The Obama supporter is very passionate about specific individual issues. Things that go to their very core fulfilling their need to belong.

As most of us know these issues are race, amnesty, abortion and homosexuality. Please do not fill up my page or email with your beliefs on this. This isn’t the point of this column.

The point is to show the Obama supporter knows they’ve been lied to and is hurt deeply by this. As they continue blinking their eyes they don’t want to believe they’ve been used…but deep down they now know they have.

Don’t get me wrong. There will always be some humans who will never accept the truth.

How do I know this?

Bush still has a few supporters.

But as the curtain is pulled back Obama’s supporters are sadly realizing he not only isn’t there for them…he never intended to be.

Their lives aren’t better. Sadly things have actually gotten worse. The influx of even more illegals suppresses wages and bombards our schools and hospitals. The politicians and media can try and spin it by creating new formulas to make the numbers look better but everyone knows the truth.

47 million on food stamps/welfare.

18 trillion in debt and rising.

You give me trillions of dollars I can make anything look good on a spread sheet.

The problem is the spread sheet is a lie just like Obama and the dollars aren’t free.

America, do you really think we can ignore this without repercussion?

Just blink brothers and sisters of all races, religions, and creeds. It’s time to deal with the cancer amongst us. If we wait too long this disease will spread everywhere requiring a medication none of us want and many won’t survive. Debt has no loyalty. When it comes calling it will wipe out everything in its path.

It your time. It’s my time. It’s our time. As one of my favorite lines of all time says,

“It’s the fullness of time.”

But you have to rise, hold steady your vision, and share the message. I will never stop but this is a monumental task we are undertaking. I need your help every day to continue making a difference. As we build this platform together one voice at a time my only goal is to serve you free of corruption by never taking a single penny in campaign contributions. To not accept a salary.

Power is a tremendous responsibility. Anyone thinking they will not be hardened through the process is foolish which is why I am only willing to serve be one term. For the good of the country the authority of the Presidency must not be held in any hands longer than one term. Besides if things haven’t improved in four years four more isn’t going to make them better. In fact we now know the worst comes out of these people in their second terms.

Unlike the last three narcissists to hold this position I am not egocentric. I also know I am fallible which is why I’ve put in my own check and balance.

One term.

Anyone unwilling to do the same should never be trusted with such power.

Never.
