Unless you’d prefer a noose

Last Sunday on Meet the Press, former Obama Advisor David Plouffe, called Donald Trump a psychopath.

The moderator Chuck Todd (a Clinton supporter/apologist) jumped in and inquired as to the “fairness” of this statement, never mind it was false and certainly unprovable by the likes of Plouffe.

Todd asked Plouffe if he had a degree in Psychology and of course Plouffe didn’t.

Two sickly looking humans gossiping about a 70 year old man whom appears to have more energy than the Press, and all of the Clinton campaign, combined.

At least Trump can finish a sentence without coughing up a lung.

Now I actually do have a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology but that doesn’t make me a Psychologist.

That would be a Ph.D, Chuckles.

It doesn’t make me a Psychiatrist either.  That would be an MD, Theodore.

Yet this is what the media is now giving us.

Liberal Progressives calling anyone any name they like until something sticks (Harry Reid anyone?), and the media giving them plenty of airtime, to do so.

The press continues to smear and separate Americans on a daily basis.

We are constantly being told that an overwhelming percentage of Black Americans, almost all Hispanics or Latinos (for goodness sake members of the press, please settle on one label of bigotry) and “educated Whites” all support Clinton while only the “uneducated  White” knuckle draggers support Trump.

The “deplorables”.

It’s really an amazing thing what the Press is doing and too many seem to either agree, not notice or not care.

Whites are being stereotyped by “education”.

Smart Whites want Clinton.

Stupid Whites want Trump.

It is very clear what the Press is doing as they continue to tell us this EVERYDAY.

Amazingly no one, on either side of the spectrum, seems to grasp what else is being said.

While the “smart Whites” support Clinton and the “stupid Whites” support Trump, the press is stating that virtually ALL Black Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are supporting Clinton.

Unless we are to assume that all Black Americans and Hispanic/Latinos are “educated” the Democrats/Press are calling at least a portion of Black Americans and Hispanics “uneducated” or in another word…dumb.

While Whites are stereotyped by “education” Blacks and Latinos aren’t given such “courtesy”.

According to the media these two groups all think the same way regardless of an “education.”

Sounds like “racial profiling” to me.

Funny how bigotry always finds its way home.

Of course the press isn’t going to overtly speak the truth even though their actions and words are clear.

Could you possibly imagine the media coming out with “educated Blacks and Hispanics support Clinton…and so do the uneducated Blacks and Hispanics.”

Neither can I.

Now it has been acceptable to call Whites “stupid” for quite a while and as a strategy has worked incredibly well.

Rather than challenge the truth most of American society has been conditioned to accept Political Correctness which has morphed into:

“White Men Bad.  All Others are oppressed and in need of Government Assistance.”

White Guilt is in full bloom and has over taken the airwaves.  Case in point.

Ann Coulter is a writer and speaker.  Whether people like her style or not doesn’t matter to me.  As far as I can see she tells the truth and because of this is attacked mercilessly.

She has been called everything in the book including “horse face”.  This is of course not only tolerated, but approved, by the Progressive Liberals.

They are saying she looks like an animal.

Yet when comments are made that Michelle Obama looks like a monkey or an ape this is attacked as the worst form of racism known to man.

The Liberals make jokes about Horse Face, then lose control of their bowels when they hear Gorilla, unless the word Gorilla came out of the mouth of a Sunni Muslim known as Muhammed Ali.

The same Muhammed Ali who used this term towards Joe Frazier, an American Olympic Gold Medalist and Heavyweight World Champion.

Apparently it is appropriate to call black humans “gorillas” as long as it is done by a Sunni Muslim.

For the record listed below are a few more Sunni Muslims.

Osama bin Laden (Saudi Arabia Wahhabism)

Saddam Hussein (Iraq)

That’s quite a trifecta.

Two killers the Nazis would have been proud of and a draft dodging, wife cheating, braggart who took money from a man (Joe Frazier) and then betrayed him by calling him a gorilla and an Uncle Tom.

Just so we are all on the same page calling Ann Coulter “horse face” or Michelle Obama “gorilla” is asinine.

Calling people names in general is a waste of time and a poor usage of our corpus callosum.

Sorry Clinton supporters.  Corpus callosum is the connecting tissue…oh why bother…I’m sure I lost you at trifecta and no the word “asinine” has nothing to do with your backside nor followed by ten.

Concerned citizens are now wondering what to do next.  The politicians lie.  The media lies.

The FBI tells the truth and then says if you are Hillary Clinton (or millions of illegals) the rule of law doesn’t matter.

Obama is releasing “non violent criminals” who have returned to society and already murdered people, including a woman and her children.

Sanctuary cities allow criminals to hide AND continue harming local communities.

What do we do?

First we must admit the truth.

There are millions of Americans and millions in America who abhor these United States.

It is time to stop pretending that all Americans are equal.

Those who idolize Mohammed, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Adolph Hitler, Robert Byrd, Margaret Sanger and groups like the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, CAIR, NAACP, Black Lies Matter and La Raza HATE everything America stands for.

They hate you and they hate me.

La Raza wants parts of the United States “back”.

Sharia wants it all.

Now there are many who will say these things aren’t true.  Sadly they are.

I wish they weren’t.

There is nothing wrong with America but there is definitely something wrong with plenty of Americans.

The time for compassion is long gone.

With statements like “pigs in a blanket, fry em like bacon”, “Islam is woven into the fabric of our country”, “Hamas is a humanitarian organization”, “Sharia Law is compatible with the United States Constitution” and calling for militancy from illegals against Americans, there is no room for compassion.

Just ask Reginald Denny.  He was almost beaten to death in the Los Angeles riots in 1992 for simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time.

“Room to destroy” has been around for decades.

Roughly the same amount of time that many in the Me Generation have been preying on the generosity of the United States.

The worst generation of politicians in American history.

Hillary Clinton is a disease that needs to be quarantined in Leavenworth, not stealing more furniture from 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

Like Trump or not…I don’t care.

He is the only tourniquet available right now.

Unless you’d prefer a noose.

I choose to stop the bleeding not our breathing.

If need be…one knuckle at a time.

Then they came for me

Decades ago as I settled into my seat the college professor began to pass out the syllabus and stated, “You could probably pass this class by just reading the book…but then again.  I am telling you now there will be things on the tests that can only be learned in class.  The text will not hold all the answers.  So it is up to you.  Come to class, don’t come to class.  Pass or fail.  I suggest for those who want to pass, regular attendance, should be one of your primary goals.”

Attendance wasn’t a problem for me.  I was on campus everyday because of baseball.  Going to class wasn’t the hard part.  Staying awake through some of these “lectures” was a task unto itself.  This teacher however was one I knew I would enjoy.  He spoke clearly and at a good pace.  He also presented himself well as someone who’d lived but hadn’t been crushed by the living.

He wasn’t there to scare us, berate us, or bore us.  He was there because he enjoyed teaching.  He wanted to share his experiences within the scope of the class.

In other words he liked to tell stories.

We moved through the breakdown of the semester, two tests, one project, and points for attendance.  My kind of guy.  Not only did he tell you attendance was important but he also attached value.

Something many teachers still don’t understand.

The class finished and two days later we were all back for more.  Some of us anyway.  Noticeably there were many empty seats.  I watched the professor with a bit of pity.  I felt bad for him.  He had done a great job.  His stories were entertaining, his points well thought out.  He perused the room and then said, “Showing up is half the battle.  You will not learn by being absent.”

He then started to speak.

After about 15 minutes I looked around the room.  The professor had been talking the entire time and had everyone’s attention.  No notes were taken, no chatting in the back, no trying to talk to the opposite sex.  He had us in the palm of his hand.

He was teaching.

He talked about human behavior, ethics, and then mentioned off hand how one time he had a professor who gave a 100 question true/false test and all the answers had been true.  Thirty five minutes later our fifty minutes was up and we shuffled out the door to our next destination.  He’d given quite a bit of information but because he’d relayed it in story form I thought I would remember the important points.

Turned out I was right.

Two weeks later the class was packed as one of our two tests was scheduled.  The prof entered, smiled, and said how lovely it was to see EVERYONE today.  I laughed to myself as he started to pass out the test.  Hand over head the test was distributed until each of us sat silently with our test, number two pencil and scan-tron.

“You have the rest of the class to complete your test.  Once you are finished you are excused.  We will go over them next time.  Good luck.”

I turned my attention to the test and read the first question.  I nodded and marked True.  I read the next question.  True as well.  The third, fourth, and fifth questions were all True before the light bulb went off.  I quickly skipped to the end.  There were 100 questions.  I read the last question.  It was true.  I reversed back to the middle and randomly selected another question.  It was true.  I almost laughed out loud.  I looked up at the mad scientist at the front who was sitting watching the room.  I shook my head and without bothering to read any other questions, marked every single one of them True.  I did double check to make sure I’d filled in every single spot.  I even counted them individually to make sure.

When you’ve got the magic code you want every single point and I had the magic code.  After a few minutes I gathered my backpack and walked to the front of the room.  I could feel the looks from many of the other students.

Some because they couldn’t believe I could read 100 questions that fast.  They were right.  I couldn’t.

A few others watched me as well because they too had the magic code but wanted to wait for verification that they were right.  I looked at the professor with a quizzical set of eyes.  It was possible I could be wrong and if so I was about to flunk this test.  He met me with laughter in his and said “have a nice day.”

I barely made it half way to the door before ten other students were turning in their tests.

All True.

Two days later we were back in class.  ALL of us.  Our teacher walked in and started talking as always.  While passing our scan-trons back the class sat as though in a spell.  We all wanted to see our results.  Even more importantly we wanted to hear more from this man.  He had our attention because those of us who had “showed up” had been rewarded and those of us who didn’t, were not.

Knowledge isn’t about rote memorization, or the taking of tests.  It’s about having experiences that lead to thinking critically.

Teaching is about provision of the truth and facts, and then the reward of those who learned through the experience by thinking critically.

In other words, “show up and get to work.”

There are too many in America who haven’t any knowledge and aren’t questioning lies.

There are too many in America who aren’t even showing up.

Generations on food stamps who believe they deserve a check.

Generations of bigotry who don’t support the United States but rather La Raza.

Generations of hate that call for the collapse of America and the killing of apostates and infidels through the word of Mohammed.

It’s time to “attend class” citizens of these United States.  It’s time to show up in record numbers and vote properly.

If you were one who bought into Bill Clinton, I understand.  The man is a world class liar and sociopath.

If you were one who bought into George Bush, I get it.  What were the alternatives? Gore or Kerry? Hardly.

If you were one who bought into Obama, I get it…the first time.  The second time…just plead insanity.

A second helping of a Clinton and a third helping of Obama?

There is no excuse.  Those who continue to support Hillary Clinton, for any reason, are detriments to a free society, traitorous in their decisions, or ignorant beyond aid and can no longer be tolerated.

Democratic Politicians are calling for the “militancy of illegals against Americans” while naming anyone who wants the rule of law  enforced a racist, bigoted, homophobic, xenophobe.  Democratic Politicians support the Nation of Islam, Sharia Law, the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas.

OPENLY.

Some will tell you they don’t but lies of omission are still lies.

While Hillary takes money from Saudi Arabia, Obama is the greatest stimulus program in the history of Iran and they both continue to do it over and over again while the Press, Loretta Lynch and James Comey ignore or provide cover for their criminal behavior.

What do we hear from the Liberals (Republicans and Democrats)?  They are worried about Donald Trump???

They aren’t worried.  They are complicit and they know the only outsider since Ross Perot is going to raise the hood and start poking around.

If you have friends, family, or acquaintances that are supporting the demise of America you must defend our country.  Stop worrying about their feelings.  They aren’t worried about ours. Use your voice in whatever capacity necessary to show them the light.

The alternative will certainly be less agreeable to us all…especially to those who will be marked as traitors.

We either have the Rule of Law or we don’t.

Trust me Liberals you better hope we do.

Democracy has been a failure and a lie.  We are a Constitutional Republic.  If you cannot grasp this concept Comrade Obama has opened a path for all of you to visit Cuba.

“First they came for strangers and I did nothing.  Then they came for my neighbors and I did nothing.  Then they came for me.”

The Five Phases of Trump

Each week I gather as much information as I can pertaining to the happenings in the World.

As this takes place ideas or subjects jump out at me that I feel are important to expand upon.

This week has been truly bizarre.

Seemingly everyday Wikileaks is releasing past Clinton criminality (with promises of more) at the same time Donald Trump continues to say things that make me grind my teeth.

In other words the wheels on the bus go round and round, round and round, round and round.

For years I have written columns, and a book, about the financial and moral collapse brought on by tens of millions of members of the Boomer Generation.  How sex, drugs, debt and the perversion of laissez-faire into “living for the now” has crippled our country and allowed oppression to grow through “government programs”.

Liberal and Liberty are not synonymous.

Progress and Progressive are like water and oil.

One of these columns pertained to Trump and his Scorched Earth style of dealing with enemies.

The Donald has been an enigma his entire life, as he seems, to never have had a thought, that didn’t escape his lips.

If he thinks it, he says it.

I’m sure in his younger years he was a bit more diplomatic but I know as each year passes for me, my ability to politely tolerate stupidity has virtually disappeared.

I’m 45.  Donald is 70.

In the beginning it was great to hear him talk about the border and human trafficking.

The Ostrich Syndrome provided by both Parties, and too many citizens, has lead to the murder, rape, and sexual trafficking of women and children.

In another word…SLAVERY.

Unfortunately his verbiage was a bit rough and is now being used against him by the cowardly politically correct crowd and the treasonous CAIR and La Raza supporters.

Both enemies of America and Americans.

When he stated murders and rapes were and are happening, because our border is nonexistent, he was and is right.

Unfortunately he doesn’t appear to be able to evolve in any communicative manner and has lead us to where we are now.

Trump has gone through three campaign managers and although I am sure they are all intelligent people, they don’t seem to understand, or be capable of managing The Donald.

To do so one must be willing to admit that (a) he is uncontrollable (stop trying to) and (b) he thrives on negative attention.

Trump walks to the beat of his own drum.

Let us call it the Five Phases of Donald.

Phase One begins with him being insulted, acknowledging the guilty party and blasting away.

Cue Rosie O’Donnell.

This only continues if the person responds.

Trump likes to think of himself as a counter-puncher and not a bully.

His recent tirade with Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski only escalated because Joe continued.

Once Trump started talking about secret love affairs Joe seemed to quiet down dramatically.

Not sure what Mika said.

I don’t watch Morning Joe enough to garner what the Claire Underwood House of Cards lookalike pontificated upon, if at all.

Regardless, if the other side continues, he does as well, which kicks off Phase Two.

Now before we go any further I want to be very clear.

Trump isn’t doing this on purpose.

This isn’t some strategy he is following.

His only strategy is flamethrower to the left, flamethrower to the right.

This is my subjective opinion from leading, learning, coaching, teaching, and dealing with people in many situations for almost five decades.

Combine this experience with understanding Adam Smith and Abraham Maslow and it is relatively easy to predict certain behaviors of the Individual.

Especially successful people.

Successful people have daily routines.

It helps to create wealth, stability, and happiness.

It also creates patterns that are easy to see if one is willing to look.

Metaphorically it is the difference between hearing (the tympanic membrane reverberating in our ears creating sound) and listening (the gathering of information from aforementioned reverberation).

I digress.

Phase Two of Mission Scorched Earth began when he started to garner support from mainstream America.

Again millions of Americans loved to watch Rosie receive her comeuppance.

Tens of millions of Americans also loved to listen to the Party of Bush (RINO) get ripped apart.

Trump could do no wrong in Phase Two as even he commented “I could shoot somebody and still get votes”.

Unfortunately he personalized this affection as America loving him, when this wasn’t the case overall.

Freedom loving Americans love AMERICA!

We don’t do hero worship.

Yet most were willing to go along for the ride because SOMEONE needed to remove the corruption from Washington D.C. and the Donald’s “kung fu seemed strong”.

Trump was riding high and even took the lead in the polls for a week or two.

Sadly we must remember the two things the campaign managers don’t seem to understand.

(a)He is uncontrollable (don’t bother to try) and (b) he thrives off negative attention.

Things were going TOO well.

It is possible the speed of it all caught up to him, or even the reality that he may actually become President, suddenly landed uncomfortably in his psyche.

We will never know but the wheels on the bus completely fell off and it stopped going round and round.

Do not pass go.

Do not collect $200.

He even acknowledged this by saying “if I lose I’ll go back to my great life.”

This is the statement of someone who is preparing to not win.

How do I know this?

We’ve all said something like this at one time or another when we thought we might not get something we wanted especially in competition.

It’s human nature to emotionally “hunker down”, lick our wounds and tell ourselves everything will be okay.

It’s our first line of behavioral defense.

Trump just did it in front of the World.

With Rosie O’Donnell, Phase Three started with her going into hiding.

Trump continued to hammer her at every turn and lost some support because people started to forget who started the entire thing.

The Donald started to look like a bully.

This is where his campaign managers could make such a difference.

The man thrives on the fight but just like Rosie, Hillary has been hiding, poking her head out occasionally while refusing to give an actual press conference for a couple hundred days.

Trump wants to fight but Hillary is refusing to actively engage him (smart and cowardly) until her people tell her to.

She then pops up with “Trump is a racist” at a fundraiser and disappears into the night.

Trump doesn’t see her as an equal.

He thinks she’s lazy, incompetent, corrupt, and in general not on his level when it comes to real achievement.

He’s right and because of this he finds her boring.

I guarantee it.

Hillary Clinton is a criminal and a horrible candidate.

She knows it.  I know it.  You know it.

Her supporters know it.

Everyone knows it.

She is simply playing possum and running out the clock and it is working because Trump’s people aren’t doing their job.

We all know what he is.

Work to his strengths.

He needs a target.

We need him to target her.

His people need to draw her out.

They cannot sit there and wait for the debates.

The polls, have to be even, going into the first debate, or this election is probably over unless some type of catastrophe happens that none of us want.

This leads us to Phase Four.

Phase Four has brought eye rolls and puzzlement from Trump allies and the return of Rosie/Hillary supporters again attempting to defend their “friend” and attack Trump with viciousness and lies, while she continues to hide from the public eye.

This is the problem.

Trump is hitting every single one of them back AND piling on Clinton/O’Donnell.

Although this worked against Rosie he has got to ignore the mealy mouthed press and Hollywood types and aim that bazooka at Clinton.

Unfortunately it appears Whack-A-Mole is Hillary’s game plan.

Sometimes you see her, sometimes you don’t.

Trump isn’t nuanced or even patient enough for this.

His people have to be and they aren’t.

Trying to “soften his message” on immigration is foolish.

Border security is good for the entire country especially the poorer neighborhoods.

He should be hammering the gangs and cartels that are causing all this mayhem, rape, death, and destruction.

He should be reminding people about heroin and meth and what it does to the human spirit and he should remind people that our failing cities are controlled by Progressive Liberals.

Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Oakland, Los Angeles, etc., are all broke and broken.

Don’t get softer Donald.

GET STRONGER.

We want to hear you ROAR American Greatness!

We want to hear America First!

When The Donald was declared the victor over Rosie the 5th cycle was complete.

Trump buried O’Donnell.

Her life has been a mess ever since.  Her own child reportedly despises her.

We are in Phase Four right now.

Trump allies are still with him but understandably tense as he Scorches Earth with his Twitter account daily.

Sometimes necessary.

Many times not.

Trump’s part-time friends are quietly distancing themselves while Clinton supporters like CAIR, La Raza, and the NAACP pile on.

The question now is this.

Can Mr. Brexit focus on one target, sniper-like, and put the Cackle Queen away or will we all be stuck in the 4th cycle and four more years of lies, deceit, and corruption known as an Obamanation?

One thing is certain Donald J.

I am here to defend freedom.

To defend these United States.

As such I am willing to help you in any capacity.

Although James Taylor has turned out to be a rube, easily manipulated by the financier of Iran known currently as the President of the United States, he did at one time create wonderful music and one line is currently poignant.

“Winter, spring, summer or fall,

All you got to do is call,

And I’ll be there, yeh yeh yeh

You’ve got a friend…till the end.”

There’s millions of us.

Stop trying to carry the load yourself.

We have strong backs and bright minds and we stand:

Shoulder to shoulder.

America First.  American Only.

Freedom First.  Freedom Only.

All you got to do is call.

Enough is Enough

I was in my early thirties and playing in a rec basketball league.  I like movement, quick cuts, lots of shots, and a clean game.

Of course if you bang me around I’m coming back at you twice as hard. (I knew a guy who always played fair until the other side didn’t.  Once the cheap shots began he’d start pinching and twisting their skin while he guarded them. They’d jump like cats getting hit by a spray bottle).

Most of the time this gets the court under control.

In one particular game a member of the other team was getting frustrated because he was having a poor night.  As I was the one guarding him most of the game he decided to take his temper tantrum out on me…in a very sly manner.

Coming up the court dribbling he immediately grabbed the ball with both hands and fired a two handed pass…into my face.

I’ve been hit by fists, feet, elbows, baseballs, and for those of who have been with me for a while you’ll remember a train seat that almost knocked me out, but a basketball thrown as hard as someone can from a few paces away hurts…a lot.

Some will tell you I have a quick trigger.

A temper if you will.

They blame it on my red tresses.

This is of course wrong as you can all see I am devoid of hair.

I am one of the most peaceful humans you will ever come across…unless you are trying to hurt me or others.

This doesn’t mean I have a temper.

I don’t create drama or abuse others.

I simply defend myself.

I just do it dramatically faster than most.

I don’t need to get hit twice.

Once is good enough and I will take that one step further.

I don’t need to get hit even once.

If you threaten me verbally, I will take your word for it, and engage you in any way I see fit to protect myself and/or others.

It’s not a hero thing…just can’t sleep at night if I don’t.

I like to sleep at night but let us return to the story.

When the ball hit me in the face my reaction was instantaneous and both of my hands (of their own accord) latched onto the neck of the poor passer.

Within seconds teammates, opposition, and referees were grabbing me and attempting to break the hold I had on his throat.

After enough force was applied my hands (again of their own accord) were ripped away and I was covered in the arms of my teammates requesting that I relax.

I’m not a big fan of people touching me in an aggressive manner but as my friends weren’t trying hurt me I “relaxed” and told them to let me go.

They did.

The poor passer was standing on the other side of the court feigning ignorance.

“The pass just got away.”

“It was an accident.”

“I’m sorry.”

“I didn’t mean to.”

Yeah right.

I’ve been competing on fields, courts, black top, grass, dirt, etc., from the age of five.

I KNOW when mistakes are made and when things are intentional.

How do I know?

I know because I’ve made mistakes and also done things intentionally.

This was intentional.

He stayed away from me the rest of the game and then lamely tried to apologize to me out in the parking lot.

It was one of those unapology apologies.

“If I hurt you I am very sorry.  I didn’t mean to.”

If you hurt me?  You just threw a basketball as hard as you could into my face.

Of course it hurt.

My response was short and because it had profanity (I know), and poor grammar, allow me to  “paraphrase”.

I know you did it, you know you did it, get away from me right now before something horrible happens to you.

He left.

The reason for this story is simple.

Those that have abandoned Americans on foreign shores are now feeding us garbage like “love conquers all”.

We are being abused and lied to everyday by political parties, government, and the media…and we know it.

Yet nothing happens.

A friend asked me recently, “what are we suppose to do Jason?”

It’s a great question.

We are being hammered everyday by debt, greed, and crime…what do we do Jason?

We grab them by the THROAT.

When someone says something idiotic or oppressive…hammer them.

Freedom of Speech works both ways.

Don’t spend too much time on the internet cowards, the keyboard warriors.

These people are ridiculous and hide behind fake names and false photos.

We start taking back OUR country by stating our case verbally in public to whomever needs to be corrected.

Friends, family, strangers, whomever.

Open your mouths and unleash the truth!

No more biting our tongues or lowering our voices.

No more changing words or worrying what the ignorant think.

No more caring about their feelings or political correctness.

Why bother?

They don’t think, hence the term ignorant.

Use your voice to ROAR the greatness of America, of Freedom.

Don’t try to use reason or attempt to explain issues to the imbecilic.

Engage, overwhelm, and move on.

We’ve nothing to learn from them.

Do not bother with a dialogue.

It is monologue time.

It is time for each of us to be the pebble that is cast into the pond that creates undulating waves beyond our own recognition or better yet the boulder that crashes down into the ocean taking no prisoners.

We live FREE without FEAR.

We are Americans!

This means something to us…make sure it means something to them.

Leaders lead.

Followers follow.

The only question left is which are you?

Will you bend to the oppressive will of others…or will you bend for no one as Freedom requires.

Politics is very real and an extension of War.

WAR.

There are no rules in War and this is what happens when there is no Rule of Law.

Trump’s one big problem

Let’s just get down to it.

If Donald Trump is elected his biggest issue won’t be “building the wall”.

That is basic construction, furthermore, America put a man on the moon.

We can build a wall.

His largest problem won’t be deporting tens of millions of humans here illegally.

By the way don’t believe the “10-12 million number”.

There are dramatically more humans here illegally than that.

Paul Ryan, Mitch McConnell, Nancy Pelosi, etc., won’t be his biggest problems either.

Nor will bad trade deals, the media, Rosie O’Donnell, or Islam.

Notice I didn’t say ISIS.

I said Islam, Sunnis and Shiites.

The overwhelming issue Donald Trump (and the rest of us) will have to deal with are the Central Banks around the world.

Specifically the IMF (International Monetary Fund and overseer of the Central Banks #Christine Lagarde) and the Federal Reserve.

Sadly 95 percent of the citizens of America don’t recognize the words Central Bank (and of even greater consternation I doubt even one percent know about the IMF) and more importantly don’t understand how their quality of life is being chipped away one day at a time as trillions of dollars, euros, and yen are extracted from the masses and trapped by these ignominious creations, that only serve the greed of a few.

Even the trillions in capital, these all encompassing creatures have consumed, isn’t enough.

As their addiction to control heightens, their willingness to reach beyond, and into the economic heart of the world, is crushing what were once sovereign nations, eating away at centuries of the “Invisible Hand”.

Think of it as a meth addict who has sold everything they have, including their body, their children, their children’s children, and then promised the lives of the unborn just to get their “fix”.

This is what is happening right now and for all you economic and behavioral neophytes this is not called Capitalism.

It’s called corruption.

This type of corruption always leads to WAR and not the stupid, infantile word games going on between Obama, Putin, Hollande, and Merkel.

Actual WAR where countries bomb each other, where humans are murdered daily, where chaos reigns.

Similar to what the “JV team” is doing right now.

Trump himself has mentioned his concern a few times, that the collapse of the fraudulent inflated markets, (due to the Central Banks) will happen on his watch.

He is smart to entertain these thoughts as he is right.

Bush thought he could ignore the deregulation done by Clinton (Glass/Steagall 1999) and leave the mess for the next guy.

As we all know 2008 landed right on him, and those that probably consumed paste as children, opined for the Clinton days of old.

Give em books and they eat the pages.

Let me be clear.

George W. Bush was and is still a malignant tumor on America, and an enemy of Freedom, but he didn’t open Pandora’s Box of bigoted and leveraged housing.

He simply ignored it and then decided some Sunnis (Iraq) needed killing while eventually (through Obama) opening the door for the Shiite (Iran).

Some will say this language is a bit harsh.

To them I will say had our language been harsh thousands in our military may still be alive.

“The truth is like poetry…and most people f*&cking hate poetry”. Quote from The Big Short.

I LOVE POETRY.

I digress.

Alan Greenspan, Ben Bernanke, and Janet Yellen (Federal Reserve Chairmen and Chairwoman) all willingly admit they “missed” the last housing boom and bust.

How is it that the smartest (supposed) people trained in the field of economics missed what the rest of us knew was happening all along?

They didn’t.

They are either bonafide morons or complicit characters.

There is no room for any other option and although “marble mouth” Yellen is a nightmare to listen to…she isn’t stupid.

She’s a fraud.

Just like Greenspan, just like Bernanke, just like Clinton(s), just like Bush, just like Obama.

We have allowed the physically weak, morally bankrupt, and evil personified to dictate to us from up on Mount High.

Idiotic charlatan “funny men” like Bill Maher, John Stewart, and sometimes Bill O’Reilley (I say sometimes because he is never funny and occasionally not wrong) are treated like GODS while propping up this charade known as “democracy”.

WE ARE NOT A DEMOCRACY!!!

We are a Constitutional Republic…or at least we use to be.

The Federal Reserve has taken hold of our Freedom and doles out snippets of oxygen through the Federal Government via “programs”.

We have housing and food programs for the “poor”.

Programs for the “needy”, the tired, the lazy, the drug induced, the alcohol imbibers, the crack pipe connoisseur, the emotionally challenged, the banks, the car manufacturers, the “green energy” crowd, Solyndra, and the Elon Musk’s of the world.

We even pay people to sit in prison and if the Democratic Governor in the State of Virginia had his way felons would be able to vote.

Terry McAuliffe.  Another rotten branch from the Clinton tree of monarchy.

This is all happening because the Federal Reserve is allowing the United States of America to “borrow” any and all amounts it deems necessary.

A question was asked of one of the Fed Chairs a while back.

“Aren’t we going to run out of money by constantly borrowing and spending?’

The pompous twit answered “no” that we would never run out of money, that governments can always create more “money”.

“What we will run out of are assets.”

In other words there will always be money…just nothing to spend it on.

For some this is hard to imagine.

For others that reality has already arrived.

Many say “this will never happen in my lifetime”… and there you have it…the meth addict in our midst.

Selling off their body, their children, their children’s children, and the lives of the unborn…just to get their fix.

Why do you Matter?

For those of you who’ve read Late Bird you will recognize Trinity County and Del Loma, California.

For those of you who haven’t, Del Loma, California is a tiny town (population 30) in Trinity County adjacent to the better known County of Humboldt (those of you unfamiliar with Humboldt County…good for you as back in the 70’s and 80’s it was synonymous with marijuana).

I’d just been named to the twelve year old “major league” all-star baseball team that covered Weaverville and the small mill towns up and down the Trinity River.

Feeling quite proud of myself I strode down the middle of the trailer park my family owned and managed.

As I moved down the gravel road and passed different single wide trailers, not a word was said to me.

It was as though they didn’t realize an “all-star” was in their midst.

After passing  three quarters of the park I said to my brother “I can’t believe no one is saying anything. Don’t they realize I am representing them, that I matter?”

Ah…the egocentrism of a child.

I’m laughing at myself as I write this.

Fortunately while maturing and experiencing life, humility and knowledge were both uncovered.

The realization that there are BILLIONS of humans on the planet having their OWN personal experience is a fascinating and sobering thought to those who actually think.

The things that matter, and the things that don’t, become very clear when the struggles of life occur.

Being a man or woman doesn’t mean you matter.

Neither does being gay or straight.

Those that think the color of their skin (any color) matters are bigots and the weak links in a free society.

The concept of diversity pertaining to the color of a human’s skin also shows a lack of intelligence and self-awareness.

No situation is better with the addition of citizens because of the level of melanin in their body.

To think so is unadulterated ignorance.

Neighborhoods become better, safer places to live and raise children when responsible, ethical, hard working people live in those environments.

It has nothing to do with skin color and yes I can and do speak from EXPERIENCE.

Unfortunately some in our government believe that moving “brown and black” humans into “white” neighborhoods will “diversify” us.

What bigots like Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Julian Castro are really saying is this:

Black and Brown humans are incapable of creating their own quality neighborhoods and must live among Whites.

Of course this is false and this same type of “irrationalization” was used to create Affirmative Action, the attempt at Ebonics as a “black” language, the allowance of the dangerous growth of La Raza, and the term “token”.

Imagine if we implemented the same types of programs everywhere in our country.

Let’s take athletics.

Black and Brown humans receive four strikes in baseball rather than three.

In football Black and Brown humans have to be tackled twice to be considered down.

In soccer “non-whites” can use their hands, and in basketball a layup counts as three and a three counts as four depending upon the color of your skin.

It wouldn’t be long before White humans would stop competing in these organizations and move on to create their own leagues…or neighborhoods.

Sadly this is exactly what has happened for decades across America through Federally induced, financially and morally bankrupt housing programs (Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac through Clinton, Bush, and Obama) and how Pandora’s Box was initially opened that created the last housing crisis…and the current one awaiting its day of reckoning.

Of course these programs are wrong and antithetical to one of the strengths of living in the United States.

Freedom of Movement.

Humans in America can move anywhere they like at anytime.

We don’t need Federal programs to do so.

In fact if you don’t like being in these United States one can head south into Mexico, Guatemala, or Honduras and for the cost of a plane ticket can land almost anywhere in the world.

Great Britain, France, Germany, Spain, and Liberia are all available.

To attempt to financially incentivize some, while punishing others, because of the color of their skin, is fomenting anger and frustration while making neighborhoods LESS safe.

Furthermore because Americans have the Freedom of Movement those who don’t want to live with humans who are being subsidized with their neighbors tax dollars will move, weakening the society as tax paying citizens jettison their towns, streets, and wards.

Terminology like “White Flight” and “Regentrification” have been created to explain the exodus and then return.

This isn’t a theory.

It’s already happened in Detroit, Baltimore, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco and will continue as long as Progressivism reigns.

Wash, rinse, repeat.

Many politicians in San Francisco, through “regulation and regentrification”, have driven up prices and driven out the “poor” over the last decade.

To liberals poor means “black and brown” or “mentally ill” and they are quietly forcing the results of their progressive policies out of their own “backyards” and into rural California and sometimes Nevada depending upon the bus schedules.

For those who need “proof” multiple stories in liberal “rags” such as the L.A. Times and the S.F. Chronicle covering these issues exist.

Stop being so lazy and do your own research Pelosi supporters.

Not that you care…you bigots are voting for this.

Ah the Democratic Party or otherwise known as the Party of the Klan (Robert Byrd), La Raza (Luis Guiterrez),  CAIR (Maxine Waters), and Black Lives Matter (Barack Hussein Obama).

Ward Connerly and Shelby Steele (both humans with black skin) warned against this type of thinking and outlined exactly what would happen.

Years ago in Steele’s case and decades ago for Connerly.

I am sure they are both disappointed to be correct.

Yet correct they are as the Progressive agenda plays on surrounded by more promises of “free healthcare, education, and a guaranteed living wage”.

One need only look to Venezuela to see the end of the road for those who allow the takeover of the private sector through “government intervention.”

Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Russia, China, etc., are also examples.

We have another name for this.

It’s called Organized Crime.

Al Capone would be so proud of his fellow Chicagoan(s).

While the Central Banks continue to drive up the cost of stocks, housing, food, energy, and everything else the American citizen needs to survive and thrive too many are willing to focus on ” historical proximity to the sun” (skin color).

The Human Experience begins and ends everyday across the world.

Those who focus on the color of anyone’s skin will rue the day that so much of their life, time, and energy was wasted.

It is egregious and egocentric to give something, no one has control over, so much attention.

It’s also a poor usage of time and resources.

There are important things to address in the world.

Human trafficking, rape, child molestation, never ending wars, the imprisonment of the Clintons, Bush, and Obama, and the criminality of Central Banks are just a few.

If your skin color is so important that you are willing to abuse others and/or ignore the abuse of others then please take a deep breath and listen closely as I say this.

You don’t matter…and you never will.

Furthermore for those of you who support the murder of law enforcement (quietly or otherwise) or are calling for them to be “fried like bacon” I STRONGLY suggest you check your hole card.

When the bullets started flying in Dallas (and you fled like cowards, unwilling to clean up the mess you created) it was the “PIGS” that ran into the fire and gave their lives for you.

Those that think Chicago, Detroit, and Baltimore are rough places to live now…just wait until no one is willing to defend you anymore.

One more thing for all the “liberals”.

I was in Law Enforcement and assigned to a County Jail as a Sheriff’s Deputy.

I know therefore I speak.

Our primary job was to ensure that our fellow Deputies, inmates, and ourselves were all alive at the end of each shift.

I’ve been kicked, punched, spit on, watched an inmate eat his own feces, and had my life threatened, and at the end of each shift those of us who started were all there in the end…including the inmates.

Inmates who had raped and sodomized women, beaten family members and strangers, and mutilated and murdered children.

Tragically, on a different shift, a fellow Deputy was murdered.

As it was early on in my time I didn’t know him very well but I attended his funeral with his friends, family, and fellow Deputies who sat stoically or cried at the loss of a young man willing to put his life on the line, and ultimately give it, to protect his community.

Sitting in the crowded church were humans with all colors of skin.

There is a line from a song by the country duo Brooks and Dunn:

“Only in America…dreaming in red, white, and blue…only in America…where we dream as big as we want to”.

We aren’t dreaming big enough.

Eat Your Dirty Laundry

“I make my living off the evening news
Just give me something
Something I can use
People love it when you lose
They love dirty laundry”

For those of you who enjoy the music of the Eighties you may recognize the writing of Don Henley and his hit song Dirty Laundry.

As a teenager Henley’s voice resonated with my generation as the man once called Golden Throat recorded “The Boys of Summer” and then delved deeper with “The End of the Innocence” and “The Heart of the Matter”.

The dichotomy of Henley (Texas born yet liberal leaning) is an interesting one.

For those of you who have been with me for a while you know I do not practice hero worship.

I can and do appreciate the strengths of others while not accepting or engaging in their flaws.

Henley is a perfect example of someone who communicated what millions thought and felt in one venue, while supporting propaganda (knowingly or not) in another.

It is striking that someone so in tune with many parts of the human condition known as life, and the absurdity of the “media”, would still support the politicians who manipulate and lie to said media which in turn lies to the citizenry.

This is a linear equation gone wildly awry.

I digress.

“Dirty Laundry” splays and fillets the “press” (as well as those who follow blindly).

Many progressives will attach “Dirty Laundry” to a network like Fox News and even Henley himself has reportedly made comparisons to one Rupert Murdoch and Dirty Laundry.

Of course this is absurd as the song was written in the Eighties while Fox didn’t appear on the scene until the Nineties but one should never allow facts to get in the way of a good liberal tale.

Does Fox fall under the intended umbrella of the lyrics by Henley?

Yes and yes but it is hypocritical (and factually incorrect) to attach only Fox, besides as stated earlier, the song was written in a prior decade.

There were plenty of three letter or alphabet networks spinning woes long before F-O-X.

Let us continue.

“You don’t really need to find out
What’s going on
You don’t really want to know
Just how far it’s gone
Just leave well enough alone
Eat your dirty laundry”

Henley almost appears Nostradamus like with this stanza as it explains the last thirty years.

Just live for the now.

“You don’t really want to know just how far it’s gone”.

My guess is too many are going to find out in a very painful way “just how far it’s gone”…if they haven’t already.

This line unto itself is poignant and yet telling of how many Americans have simply tuned out, of not only society, but the responsibility of their own survival.

Instead they’ve decided to just leave well enough alone and EAT their Dirty Laundry.

Through apathy, ignorance, crushing debt, and an unwillingness to live by any moral code they’ve become their own oppressors.

By way of their own volition (or lack thereof) they will now live with the “lack of fruit” that is provided without labor.

A “let them eat cake” scenario created by their own hand as well as a complete reversal of the Invisibility of Adam Smith.

Combined with Newtonian Law or “action reaction” philosophy the demise of the cake eaters is of course of their own accord.

Truly stunning how many “college educated voters” are reportedly backing Hillary Clinton.

Then again it shows the decrepit education they received.

Hypochondriacal Studies or the Philosophy of the Dilatory doesn’t cover Free Will or Freedom and the entire concept of seventy-two virgins only brings me disgust with those who allow and enable this moronic mindset.

“We can do the Innuendo
We can dance and sing
When it’s said and done
We haven’t told you a thing
We all know that Crap is King
Give us dirty laundry”

The politicians have danced and sung, the innuendo is done, a new race has begun as living under debt is in full bloom.

Welcome to Progressive-Liberal-Compassionate Conservative-Democratic-Socialism or otherwise known as…Oppression.

“Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down
Kick ’em when they’re up
Kick ’em when they’re down”

Obama hasn’t a clue about the QuEUe

One morning, as a young boy, my brother and I were standing outside a small store awaiting the exit of our father, who was inside finishing up some business with a client.  After a few minutes we began to look for something to do.  One of us noticed a bottle sitting atop a telephone booth and we both took turns throwing individual rocks at it in an attempt to knock it over.  Across the small two lane road known as Highway 299 in Big Bar, California sat a few nondescript types, and two drunks, in front of a seldom used building, tipping back bottles of whiskey, unadorned with paper bags, as the days of hiding their “disease” were long passed.

Looking back upon this moment in time I am relatively sure one of the imbibers put the bottle on the phone booth as they seemed to enjoy our attempts followed by our failure.  Drunken cat calls chased by slurred incoherence only drove us faster until I finally grabbed a handful of gravel and let the little missiles fly.

The stricken bottle teetered and fell but the crash of glass that emitted was orchestrated from a different venue.

Directly below the aforementioned and previously standing bottle was a sign “PHONE” and sadly that sign had been made out of glass.

The drunken skunks who’d taken so much delight in our failure suddenly became righteous upstanding (sort of) citizens, who were out to right the wrong, a little boy had just brought down, on the town of thirty five.

Profanity, threats, and a very real discussion of what they were going to do to me and my younger brother began taking place as two adults males, filled with liquid courage, started to cross the street to engage two little boys.

The nondescripts did nothing but watch as the drunken skunks turned into scavenging hyenas, swinging their bottles wildly as they thought they’d just penned off two little lion cubs that they could confront, scare, and abuse…and then out walked Mufasa.

I remember the roar from my father as he flew out the door towards the men who were coming to harm his sons.

I’d like to tell you I remember the looks on the faces of the hyenas…but I cannot.

The only thing I could see was their backs as they retraced their steps…dramatically faster than previously taken.

For some reason I seem to remember a color.

Yes a color.

I believe it was yellow.

My dad crossed the road the cowards didn’t quite make it over, and tried to “explain” to them what was about to happen…but he couldn’t.

The drunks had abandoned their post and were high tailing it back to wherever they were before being camped out getting bombed and harassing children.

Upon my father’s return he noticed the broken glass and asked what had happened.

Once all the facts were in place it was very clear that one lion cub wasn’t going to get off scot free.  I had made a poor decision and had damaged the property of someone else.  My dad marched me into the little store where I looked up at a gruff older man also known as the owner.  Behind the owner was a big sign:

In God We Trust.  All Others Pay Cash.

I knew I didn’t have enough cash for the broken Phone sign and it was highly unlikely The Big Fella Upstairs was about to make an appearance.

I apologized and then my father apologized and said he would pay for it to be fixed.  The old man just waved his hand and said it was an old sign, he was surprised it hadn’t fallen apart awhile ago.  He and my father laughed about the “bums across the street” and then we loaded up and moved on to our next stop.

The reason for this story is to show parallels of human behavior and that accountability matters.

The abuse of our country by the hyenas (Liberal/Progressive/Democratic-Socialists) is only allowed because the nondescript (Republicans) stand, watch, and fund all of their madness.

Obama’s Executive Orders would be irrelevant without coffers but Paul Ryan continues to approve of the removal of the debt ceiling while Janet Yellen keeps interest rates suppressed (through the Federal Reserve) allowing Obama to do anything he pleases.

Washington D.C. has decided they no longer need to trust God and that cash doesn’t matter as they can “print” as much as they like.

Unfortunately it appears that they are correct as most Americans don’t know, don’t show, or don’t care about things like interest rates, a solvent currency, or collusion happening between Central Banks around the world.

My guess is the British don’t care either but on Thursday night it was very clear to those who pay attention….the United Kingdom has had enough of Islam.

Many talking heads pontificated about the “economic and political” issues that could potentially take place with the UK leaving the European Union.

Lots of theories and opinions were given as to the next step(s) that would be taken.

Sadly none of these people are paying attention or they are still caught up in the Progressive language known as Political Correctness.

The BREXIT had very little to do with rates, jobs, or Brussels.

It was about IMMIGRATION.

It was about survival and the UK decided that they’d rather go it alone than stay connected to the criminal syndicate known as the EU that has forced hundreds of thousands if not millions of “refugees” into France, Sweden, Germany, and Britain.

Of course all this was made easier when the most famous member of the Choom Gang decided to threaten the citizens of the United Kingdom telling them they would find themselves in the back of the “queue” if they left.

They decided any line Obama was in was not one they wanted to be a part of.

Smart move.

Now…it’s our turn.

What am I going to do for you?

A conversation took place a while ago.

If you get elected what are you going to do for me?

My answer was simple.

I’m not going to do anything for you.

You are going to do for you!

If elected I am going to go to DC and stop the lies and corruption that are eating away at our country so YOU can live your life with liberty and pursue happiness to the best of your ability!

I continued.

Your greatest asset or largest liability can be found in the mirror every morning…if you have the courage to look.

Take a good look!!!

Besides, I continued, you are asking the wrong question.

It’s not what I am going to do for you it’s what are you going to do for others?

I don’t remember there being much of a response.

Of course this could have been because of my non verbal cues flashing an incredible irritancy.

Then again who knows these days?

With a good portion of the population conditioned to believe they “deserve” things rather than having to earn them the person asking the question could have been genuinely surprised as this may have been the first time they’d ever been told the truth.

Regardless if I get the question again, and keep my temper in check, my answer will be this.

I am going to continue to work hard, save my money, and be beneficial to others, or in other words, lead by example.

My mirror works just fine because the reflection in it says only one thing.

Freedom First.

Freedom Only.

Okay…two things.

Slavery still exists

Yesterday I went through my day as I always do.

The pursuit of happiness to the best of my ability through hard work, saving my money, and being beneficial to others.

Throughout the day the radio brought me propaganda about unisex bathrooms, the rights of “refugees” and “immigrants” and incessant noise about free college and why everyone deserves health care.

I guess the most important issue “climate change” wasn’t so important anymore…at least not yesterday.

Now for those of you who know me personally or have been here with me for a while you know I move with a purpose and a big smile on my face.

I believe in leading by example and positive energy.

I also believe in the very simple message of love God love one another.

With that said neither of my cheeks will ever turn allowing abuse to myself or anyone around me.

I believe in grace not victimization.

I digress.

Even though many of you in California and around the country sent letters requesting I be put on the stage at the Senate Debate last night our collective voices to have an Independent up there was ignored.

Instead a third Republican was put on the stage.

Yes a third Republican…in California.

It appears UOP has already chosen their candidates.

Can you guess which Party?

For those not familiar with the process in California only two make it to the General Election.

Two…not three.

As I watched the debate last night my slow burn began.

On the stage were five individuals who have taken money (campaign contributions) are willing to take more (salary, benefits, retirement) and will do it as long as they can.

My burn increased as I listened to individuals who support CAIR, La Raza, and crushing debt.

I listened to humans who have zero understanding of human behavior or intrinsic motivators.

I listened as the stage filled with “I” statements and braggadocio.

They sounded exactly like…Politicians.

Imagine that.

This of course isn’t new to any of us.

We’ve been so saturated by this behavior many have simply returned to the message of the Sixties.

Live for the now.

Tune in, turn on, drop out.

There is a new name now for irresponsible behavior that leads to millions of humans now unwilling to take care of themselves.

YOLO…or You Only Live Once.

Unfortunately too many have lived this way for too long and now want the rest of us to carry them the rest of their lives.

What’s even worse is this message of rationalization and justification has seeped into the upcoming generations.

So let us be clear.

You cannot borrow your way to financial freedom.

You cannot smoke, inhale, imbibe, or consume your way to emotional and biological health.

You must engage in only three practices to find success.

Work HARD.

SAVE your money.

Be beneficial to OTHERS.

As I turned off the television last night I thought about everything I just listened to.

The same talking points from two Parties (one who doesn’t exist in California).

No one was willing to take on our two real problems.

Crushing debt.

Human Trafficking through our open border.

As the stage was filled with nonsensical verbiage and economic absurdity more women and children were trafficked and sold in both directions through the magnet for crime known as our Southern Border.

More rapes, murders, and molestation continued and continue every day while Politicians talk about bathrooms.

It’s time we tune in to the truth and turn on to reality.

Dropping out isn’t going to be an option for too much longer…if you require Freedom.

Regardless the smile on my face has disappeared.

It’s been replaced with rage as the border costs more lives of those who don’t have the option of “dropping out” while these Politicians talk about “rights”…and bathrooms.
