14th Amendment

Recently I listened to Chris Matthews of MSNBC state “the Democrats want the border open for the votes and the Republicans want it open for the cheap labor”.

Chris Matthews has said many things that are wrong but on this one he is absolutely correct…and everyone knows it.

When I read or listen to people screaming about the Democrats trying to force a second amnesty upon America I am amazed the blame isn’t twofold.

Have they forgotten how the first one took place?

Yes, that was Ronald Reagan…a Republican.

When I read or listen to people screaming that the 14th Amendment doesn’t allow the deportation of illegals born in America I am again amazed.

Apparently they have forgotten that it’s already happened…twice.

Both Eisenhower (Republican) and Truman (Democrat) deported humans here illegally (whether “historians” want to admit it or not) and I can guarantee you most of them took their children with them.

Not so much anymore.

Our border issues (ignored by Bush (Republican) and emboldened by Obama (Democrat)) now allow the muling of children through the desert.  Not that human trafficking (see slavery) hasn’t been happening for decades (or centuries) but the overt encouragement of the Obama administration created horrific events of abuse, rape, and murder of women and children.

So we ask again…why is the border open?

See Chris Matthews.

The Democrats believe by continuing to bring in illegal humans they can count on their vote.

Of course we all know illegals cannot vote (insert laughter here).  It is kind of funny (in a not so humorous way) that we send out millions if not billions in fraudulent Social Security checks, that are cashed, but according to the “experts” our elections aren’t tainted…not even a “smidgen”.

In case that wasn’t clear to the Obama/Bush/Clinton supporter let me ease your burden.

Whomever is receiving and cashing the fraudulent S.S. checks has everything they need to be able to vote…as many times as they like.

Each fraudulent S.S. number allows for one fraudulent vote.  Coupled with the opportunity to vote absentee (mail-in), the sky is the limit for election fraud although these days with so much hacking happening to all our personal information from Russia, China, and the Department of Homeland Security, it would probably only take someone with Edward Snowden type access to change a few votes in a few States to swing an election one way or another…and no one would be the wiser.

Yes I know many think this already happened.

Anything is possible these days.

The 14th Amendment has been thrown around quite a bit this week.  With Donald Trump stating his ideas about all illegals in America being deported, the Democratic and Republican politicians have begun to panic.

How do we know this?

They’ve given up on calling him a racist and decided they would use the “law”.

Of course this is a bit ironic and hypocritical when supporters of illegals and illegals themselves turn to the “law” to protect them as their entire presence is “unlawful”.

Or in other words…AGAINST THE LAW.

The 14th Amendment says many things but the “important” one being used in defense of the criminals here illegally is stated below:

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

The talking heads have been yammering that no child born here illegally can be deported because they were “born here” and if no child can be deported then the parents must be allowed to stay to take care of the child.

From the perspective of insanity this make perfect sense.

One would expect this type of person to answer “Lincoln” when asked “who is buried in Grant’s tomb?”

Of course most of us don’t reside in the world of the insane (by the way Obama, Bush, Clinton supporter…it’s Grant) so we shake our heads at this type of asininity.

For a child to be born here illegally both of the child’s parents must be “illegal”.  Of course only one of the “parents” has to be in the United States (the mother) for the child to be born here but you get the picture.

Any woman (or man) here illegally, regardless of giving birth, is guilty of a federal crime.

Her reward?

Citizenship for her new born and status as an illegal who must be allowed to stay because someone must take care of the child.

This has been referred to as an anchor baby.

Never mind the fact the woman cannot pay for the care she received let alone provide water, food, or shelter for herself…or the baby.

We provide all of these things.

Everything you’ve just read are facts.  They are not refutable or debatable.

These things are happening every day in these United States.

Non United States citizens who are here illegally (criminals) from all over the world are walking, floating, or landing in America.  They are welcomed by sanctuary States like California and provided everything they need to live, as well as documents needed to vote (drivers licenses) and  are now allowed to sign up for California’s version of Obamacare (although this is supposedly against the law under the ACA).

If you are reading this now and don’t believe me…well…they are running commercials up and down the Golden State on television…some in Spanish.

On a side note the State of Oregon just passed a law automatically registering to vote anyone with an Oregon Driver’s License.

On a side side note I spoke with a California DMV employee recently who explained to me how California is supplying translators and driving tests in foreign languages for humans who don’t speak English.  When I asked how the new drivers would read the road signs printed in English she just looked at me for a second and said, “Good question”.

Apparently “votes and cheap labor” are more important than the safety of the American Citizen.

I digress.

The American tax paying citizen who refuses to sign up for Obamacare will not only be fined but also forced to subsidize the insurance of illegals…whether you live in California or not.

Laws are only beneficial when the overwhelming majority agrees to follow them.

When tens of millions of people break law after law with the encouragement of government…the writing is on the wall.

Time after time Americans have shown their compassion and “live and let live” side of the coin.

But once that compassion has been thrown back into our faces too many times, the roar that historically has awakened, changes nations, continents, and the world.

Americans require freedom.  It is ingrained in us.  We use to require justice.

But that has gone away with the continued abuse of the tax paying, law abiding citizen.

America is now is search of retribution and the politicians and illegals better understand very quickly what this means.

If the lawlessness continues too much longer the citizenry will have no other option but to defend itself.

By any means necessary.

We must come together to remove the politicians that are unwilling to enforce our laws before retribution is replaced by revenge.

“All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.”

The politicians think this statement is black and white.

They couldn’t be more wrong.

“And subject to the jurisdiction thereof” is government code allowing any judge to allow or disallow any “law” subject to the “jurisdiction thereof”.

Besides after watching John Roberts literally make up law while dealing with the “lie of the year” known as Obamacare these wearers of robes don’t need any help in passing whatever “law” they deem necessary.

As I’ve stated many times the pendulum swings both ways.

But then again the pendulum won’t really matter if the law abiding citizen decides to join the illegals and not follow the law anymore.

It appears the political world has decided Donald Trump is a powerful force.  DNC Chairwoman, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus,  among many, have waded in with attacks in the Donald sweepstakes.

“News” organizations such as FOX, CNN, and MSNBC have filled their airwaves with Trump quotes hoping viewers will tune in and boost their ratings.  Of course these same networks using his material attack him mercilessly for his thoughts.

There is terminology for this.

Those of us in the world of the responsible American refer to this as cowardice and hypocrisy.

I’ve been asked quite a few times as to my opinion on the Donald.

My answer is this.

Anyone (especially with 100 percent name recognition) that steps into the fray and tells the truth about our crushing debt and criminal border situation is just fine with me.

But Jason what about his prior “attack” on Rosie O’Donnell?

What about it?

Two adults (one who was on a television show that wanted ratings (O’Donnell)) ranted and raved at each other over the airwaves.  American networks drooled and panted and opened every show with  “breaking news” about the on air cat fight.

Millions of Americans tuned in to see who would throw the next punch.

None of this on any level captured my interest.

But the networks filled their allotted time with this inane banality and eventually America chimed in as well.

The Donald/O’Donnell fiasco became a proxy fight between Conservatives and Liberals.

The Liberals lobbed any and all verbal and probably financial bombs possible at Trump.

He wasn’t just in a “fight” with O’Donnell.

The press piled on as well.

Again, I could care less about any of this drivel and the only attention I paid to this media contrived high school food fight was a small shake of my head passing the checkout counter of any store as it seemed every magazine cover had some comment about these two adjacent to “aliens are about to invade Earth.”

But then something happened.

Rosie O’Donnell threw in the towel.  As much as surrendering had to be grating to her, surrender she did.

The Donald had worn her out.  As bad as both of their behavior was apparently only one of them was willing to go the distance.

As America was tuning out…this situation finally had my attention.

You see someone forgot to tell Donald Trump that Rosie O’Donnell had given in.

She’d cried uncle.  She tapped.  No mas.  No more.

Or maybe someone did tell him and he just didn’t care.

Apparently he’d decided he’d been attacked and the fight wasn’t over until he said it was over.

It seemed for months he continued to skewer her in public (and presumably in private) taking any and all opportunities to pile on.  At first I found this to be a bit much.  The whole thing seemed immature to me, his continuing to throw punches after the fight was over made no sense.

The term overkill came to mind.

He’d come out on “top”.

Just quiet down and let the ridiculousness fade away allowing America to focus on more “important” citizens like a Hilton or a Kardashian.

But it simply wasn’t meant to be.

Trump continued to pound and pound until one day my opinion of what he was doing changed.

Don’t get me wrong.

As a matter of fact (not a fact of the matter) the entire situation was still purely absurd.

Adults calling each other names in public while the press ran around baiting them with “he said this” and “she said that” falls into the category of “are any of them smarter than a fifth grader?”

But as Trump continued on…the Liberals began to shrink away.

As they shrank away he increased his barrage until one day no one stepped up or into the fray on anything Trump discussed.

The Donald gave the Liberals of taste of their own medicine.

In Liberal political terms this is called “scorched earth”.

It worked against Mitt Romney and works very well against their adversaries in general.

Stay on the attack, lie when beneficial to the “cause” and create so much noise and discomfort the other side simply gives up. Gives in.  Cries uncle.  Taps.  No more.  No mas.

War is the continuation of politics by other means (Clausewitz) and although the term “love” shouldn’t be used in this context “all is fair in war”.

The Liberals subscribe to this theory wholeheartedly and have been fighting a war for years now.  The term “Liberal” also includes many Republican politicians currently in office including Mitch McConnell, John Boehner and ones that aren’t such as Jeb and George Bush.

Their panic has begun as into this fray stepped…Donald Trump.

Someone they know is willing to scorch and torch not only the Earth under their feet but his own as well.  He thrives on the drama and when combined with overwhelming name recognition his domination of the ratings driven media was a foregone conclusion.

For some people this is a return to NBC’s “must see TV” (no Cosby pun intended here).

America has been screaming for someone, anyone, to stand up and do something, anything, to stop the corruption, lies, and overt crime taking place in Washington D.C.

Of course we are here pounding away everyday but currently we don’t have Trump’s name “fame”.


For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you are aware our time doesn’t completely arrive until early 2016.

Could the time frame change?  Certainly.

But unless or until it does the only person talking about the real problems in America on a level that is being heard is Donald Trump.

Is he scorching everything around him with his verbiage?

Yes he is.

Is this good for America?

No, it isn’t but something has to be done…and that something…is us.

While both sides are down in the gutter serious Americans with serious minds willing and able to implement new systems and ideas must continue to come together in what will be the ultimate defense of our country, of our freedom.

Trump is right.

The debt and border are crushing us monetarily, criminally, and emotionally.

He has also correctly observed one cannot bring a knife to a gunfight.  So in layman’s terms the Donald brought a “flamethrower” and is moving from left to right and back again hitting anything that moves.

Is Donald Trump the right person to be President?

Probably not.

But as I’ve stated many times when the pendulum swings it never stops in the middle.  The energy gathered swinging from one side always over corrects.

Trump would attempt to run our country as a “business”.  Some believe this is a good idea but in reality it’s only better than what is currently happening or a term we’ve all become familiar with:

The lesser of two evils.

That isn’t what our Constitutional Republic is for and will never work.

Government is never supposed to make a profit and those who point to certain government takeovers in the private sector as positives only show their lack of economic knowledge, complete misunderstanding of freedom, and tighten the proverbial noose around their own necks.

There is a word for a government controlled economy.

The word is Communism.

The only role of OUR government is to serve and protect the individual citizen affording each American the same opportunity to succeed or fail of their own accord.

To pursue happiness to the best of our own ability, dreams, and desire.

To restore freedom the Liberal mindset of government must be removed completely and permanently.

The Donald will never do this.  It isn’t in his DNA to give up control once he has claimed victory.

To return control back to the States.

Back to the Counties.

Back to the people and the individual the Constitution protects.

But God bless Donald Trump.

I absolutely believe he truly loves America.

Furthermore, he is the only one the country can hear right now telling the truth and shining the light on our real issues.

The only one.

There is one thing of which I have no doubt.

The Donald would definitely build one heck of a wall.

We just need the right person at the bully pulpit to make sure that wall says the United States of America.

Not Property of Trump.

Faux News…the only French the “liberal” knows.

Exiting my local gym a few days ago I paused and looked to my left.  A Prius was idling (maybe it was parked, you can’t hear them).  On the back of the bumper was a sticker that said Faux News in big bold letters and in parentheses below (FOX News) in case their attempt at humor wasn’t understood.  I guess that makes sense.  Liberals in general aren’t the funny type.  They are very faux serious.

I started laughing as I walked to my fossil fuel burning, beautiful nine year old, loan free truck.  As I loaded my gear into the back I continued laughing at the absurdity of the Obama Acolyte.

Let me first say I am not a big fan of FOX News.  They have definitely lost their way.  To call themselves fair and balanced and then stack each show with Bush and Obama apologist/propagandists is asinine.  I rarely watch it anymore because they are usually well behind the internet or my personal Facebook news feed when it come to timely factual information.

Of course they are miles ahead of MSNBS who could not report a fact if their lives depended on it.  I will occasionally watch the Morning Joe Show to see how many times the “progressives” (see traitors) couch their words or struggle with facts they don’t want to report.

It’s like watching children eat sour candy with their faces contorting trying to squirm their way through the Obama Administration’s lack of ability to tell the truth.  The other shows on MSNBS don’t even try.  They just open their mouths and let the lies fly.

I’d like to welcome Brian Williams aboard.  He’ll fit in perfectly.  Maybe he and Sharpton can get together and make up combat stories about saving each others lives.  Oy vey!

The reason I laughed about the Prius, Faux News sticker is because…it’s funny.

The electric car may end up being the worst invention ever.

First it still burns…fossil fuels.

Where do these people think electricity comes from?  Captured lightning strikes? Solyndra?

I mean come on already electric car owners. You are driving around in overpriced vehicles that still burn energy coming from coal or natural gas.  In case you weren’t aware…both are fossil fuels or in other words…they come from the Earth.

There is nothing wrong with coal or natural gas.  It’s all in the application.  In fact there are many wonderful things about coal and natural gas.  One of these things is referred to as heat in the winter to keep from freezing to death.

What’s that Prius owner?  You are using less of these things than the rest of us not to mention you get to drive in the car pool lane with only one driver?

The driver part is true…for now.  But here in California you are about to be sent a yearly bill because you aren’t paying enough gas tax for the roads you are driving on.

What?  You weren’t aware of this?  It sounds like a bait and switch?

That’s because it is but never fear Jerry Brown should have a new vehicle for you to head to Bakersfield on soon.  You can trade in your cars and ride the train!

You don’t want to go to Bakersfield?  Well there’s always your bicycle.

Maybe you’ll just keep your car and pay the bill?

Sounds good.

I’m sure driving around in a vehicle surrounded with many batteries running at maximum capacity should be fine.

You are akin to your own little nuclear power plant!  I’m sure that will be great for your skin.

But I do have one question while you’re driving around in your mini Chernobyl giving FOX News free advertising…where do you think all these batteries filled with acid go once they are no longer useful?

I should ask Tesla founder Elon Musk?

I guess I could but why would I want the opinion of someone who is creating moving objects surrounded by acid whose business is largely supported by government grants.  Grants that will disappear overnight along with many electric cars when the 18 trillion dollar debt bubble bursts forcing the State of California to triple your fees because…well hey…they know you have the money.

How do they know this?

Because you’ve been saving it up driving on the roads the rest of us are paying for!

Never fear progressive poindexter.  I am sure your Czar Barack Hussein Obama will come up with something similar to Cash for Clunkers to get your radio-active death traps off the road before he exits stage left to retire in Palm Springs, where the grass is green, while the rest of the State dies from overpopulation and poor planning.

Ah…don’t you just love the smell of progressive hypocrisy in the morning.

Of course we have real issues happening in the world.  Whether someone wants to drive an overpriced Nine Volt around with some French on the back bumper is part of freedom.

Free to be as tuned out to the real world as possible.

Unfortunately freedom can collapse when left unattended and ignored and this ignorance is forcing a collapse in and on America.

The taxation burden being put on the American worker is egregious.

The debt being piled on the American citizen is a crime.

The brutality happening throughout America to women and children because of our open border is unforgivable.

I read hundreds of comments (almost daily) on the internet about taking America back by force.

“America is too far gone.  Voting doesn’t matter anymore.  Everything is so corrupt”.

Fair enough.

This is why we are here.  To provide a better path.  A brighter way.

But before everyone locks and loads why don’t we try it my way first.

Overwhelming movement through social media.

Furthermore I am now ready to travel throughout America anywhere, any place, any time  to deliver my love for America in full throat!

You gather one hundred lovers of freedom together (or more) and I will be there.

No cost to you.

I will pay my entire way to wherever you are.

You gather the voices and we will roar together…in every State in this great Union.

I will never stop.  This about duty not desire.  Our need to belong as humans is primary to our survival.

We BELONG here…in these United States.

Never ever forget…this is OUR country!!!

Ten million voices, three percent of the nation, coming together.

Shoulder to shoulder.

One voice at a time.

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 not war.

Work with me to free the people.

Shoulder to shoulder.  One voice at a time.

This is OUR country!
